This RV park is a gravel lot with less than a handful of small trees, a dirty pond with the tent area surrounding the pond, a tiny building with a restroom and shower, no laundry. In the back of the park is a small cage with two goats that tried to head-butt my dogs, but my kids loved them. The Wi-Fi was really good and reliable. Is this park worth $30 per night? Absolutely not! $20 would be overpriced, but there's so little competition in the area that I guess they can get away with it. The RV park is for sale.
LOVE this RV park! End sites have large grassy areas, interior sites are small, mostly gravel, with a small patch of grass and one tree, a picnic table, and a garbage can. Located 10 miles south of Cortez, right behind the Ute Mountain Casino. There is a small playground that needs new sand, an indoor heated pool, hot tub, and sauna right across the hall from the laundry room, bathrooms, and showers, which were all impeccably clean and large. This park is very well maintained, cleaned, water tested, and patrolled by security. Cable was a little fuzzy but worked and wifi worked great the closer you are to the front desk. We were as far away as you can get (site #19) and still got decent wifi. We got the weekly rate and will likely be back to stay for a month or longer at some point in our journey.
We stayed here for 2 nights using Passport America. It’s a dump, yes. There’s a major highway on one side and train tracks on the other side, yes. The highway was a bit noisy at times but didn’t wake any of us from sleeping. The train only came through once before we went to bed, so that didn’t bother us at all. The Wi-Fi was flying. It’s as close as you can get to Great Sand Dunes National Park without dry camping inside the park. Great Sand Dunes is now one of our favorite National Parks. We spent 6 hours there and didn’t want to leave. For 2 nights, this campground is fine.
This is a gorgeous FamCamp. It’s tucked away down the road from the Air Force Academy cadet area, back in the woods. The campground is full of pine trees and tons of hummingbirds. We put out a 32-oz feeder and they drained it in 2 days. There’s lots of other wildlife as well. We were warned of bears and mountain lions, but didn’t see any. We did; however, see wild turkey, a fox, and two coyotes in the immediately area of the campground (like across the dirt road). The WiFi is sketchy and there are a couple of laundry facilities for .75 per washer and dryer. There’s a very active train track that runs through the back end of the campground and it loves to lay on the horn as it’s passing through, about 8-10 times per night? Yep, don’t expect to get much sleep here.
This is a really nice state park right off the interstate, which means there’s road noise. However, the views of the lakes and Rocky Mountains make this a very nice front yard for a week or two. The sites are spacious and most of them are on one of the lakes. Don’t bother fishing in the lakes, I didn’t see anyone catch anything and we didn’t catch anything after 3 days of a very eager 9-year-old fishing as much as possible. If you do fish, make sure you have a license, the park rangers are constantly patrolling and checking. We really enjoyed the nearby town of Longmont, a true hidden gem. The state park is also close to Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park. There is no Wi-Fi or laundry here.
This FamCamp is managed by Outdoor Recreation. There are no reservations. You just drive in, pick a spot, get setup, then drive your vehicle over to Outdoor Rec and let them know which site you’re in so they can give you a pass and a MiFi. That’s right, I said MiFi. For a $50 refundable deposit, they will sign out an unlimited Verizon MiFi for you to use during your entire stay. The FamCamp itself isn’t maintained very well. The weeds that cover the ground are occasionally mowed. There is no playground or other amenities. But with its close proximity to Denver, free MiFi, free laundry, and very spacious sites, its definitely worth the stay. The BX and Commissary are also right down the road.
Let me start by saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. The website looked great and it’s pretty much the only RV park in town. The owner took my reservation over the phone and I wasn’t confident about it. We showed up and my first reaction was, “Oh my God! Where else can we stay?” The place looked like a dump and the RVs were packed in like sardines. The owner wasn’t there, so my hubby called his cell phone and he told us he had reserved site #12, which was accessible from the main road. We pulled in and things changed… We were setup and level within minutes – fastest and easiest setup we’ve ever had. We shared a common space with our neighbor on one side and our half had a picnic table, grill, and grass. We put out the fence for the dogs and met the neighbors, who were very nice. We didn’t feel constrained at all. The RV park is one block from the main historical street in town and we walked everywhere. We were there over 4th of July weekend and were able to walk to the parade. We had an unbelievable, unobstructed view of the fireworks from our campsite that night. The laundry facilities were clean and worked great ($1.00 for washer, .75 for dryer). We stayed here for one week and got a weekly rate. Our cable didn’t work, so they called out a repairman within hours and didn’t charge us extra for cable (normally $2/day extra unless monthly). We did not pay for Wifi as we have a hotspot, so I can't comment on wifi reliability. The owner was awesome and really cares about the tenants having a good stay. We were allowed to wash our RV and even park our truck in the vacant lot next to us once the neighbors left. Even though this RV park is listed an NOT family friendly, we felt welcome and saw another family there as well. Gorgeous views of Rocky Mountains, including several 14ers (mountains over 14,000 feet high) and only one hour from beautiful Aspen. Leadville is the highest city in the USA at almost 10,200 feet elevation; however, we did not experience altitude sickness, only got a bit winded when walking downtown. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the area.
Huge park, 60 acres! Rough start: picked site 19, pulled in and no water hookup and electric box had an active hornet's nest inside. Changed to site 1. Great site! Close to dog park, laundry, restrooms, store, and Yogi Bear's cabin. Large grassy area and large aspen that shaded it. They're really working on getting all the grass grown-in. Ours was the best, in my opinion. Not busy for a Jellystone and not a lot of activities going on during the week. The weekend had a hayride, bonfire, and luau-themed dinner. Wi-Fi was super fast and very reliable. Antenna worked great, just didn't get NBC. Water pressure was unreliable. Overall, we had a good stay for 5 days.
Stayed for a week at weekly rate. Asked for end site, got site #23, which was right next to the horseshoe pits, had 3 shade trees and easy entry/exit access. Great large gift shop, very reasonably priced. Small pool, advertised as heated but we don't think it was. 24-hour laundry in 3 different locations, all priced differently. Dryers don't dry clothes. Large grassy area for kids to play, basketball court, horseshoe pits, small playground. Wi-Fi worked on tablet but not on laptop, only limited (no Internet), not sure why. Sites are level and shaded, some on ends have grassy areas.
Located on Mission Bay in a trailer-park community, this RV Resort is basically just a big parking lot with painted lines to designate campsites and a tree here and there. The perimeter is fenced, with just a few openings. The entrance is guarded and requires a permit. The exit is a motion-sensor gate that automatically opens and closes. The gate to the laundromat requires a code to re-enter the resort.A gate on the back end of the resort leads to a nice, paved walking trail that follows the shoreline of the bay all the way around the bay. There is no sundries store on location and propane is only available two days per week. Check-in which is located about .5 mile before you enter the resort and shares it's building with the trailer-park administration. In the resort, there is a snack stand that serves breakfast, lunch, and ice cream. There is a laundromat, garden, and recreation facility that is shared with the trailer-park residents. There are also toilet and shower facilities placed around the resort. Mission Bay is very close to San Diego and the RV Resort is only a few miles from Sea World. It's location provides very easy access to the interstate, so everything is within easy reach. Worth mentioning is that immediately outside the resort is the parking lot for Mission Bay Beach, where we noticed several RVs were parked the entire time we were there. There were some parked in the parking lot, some on the side of the street, and some actually on the beach. We also noticed that at the entrance to Mission Bay Park, there was a public RV dump station. We didn't check to see if a fee was charged, but found it interesting how acceptable it is to boondock in these areas.
Nice little RV Park, 10 miles from Moab, across the street from the Canyonlands National Park entrance road, and right around the corner from the Arches National Park entrance. With a gas/diesel station, propane, RV pull-thrus, and cabins. It’s right off the main highway, so its access to everything is very convenient. Moab is the place to be for all outdoor enthusiasts and the town really caters to everyone from white water rafting, jeeping, ATVing, mountain biking, to running. They've built a very nice bicycle/running trail that runs from town all the way out to Arches National Park and beyond. With so much to offer, the lodging options are plentiful but also comparably expensive. When we arrived at Archview RV Park, we were a little uncomfortable parking to check-in because we felt like we were blocking the main access. I went inside the shop and waiting in line for about 20 minutes before checking-in. There were only two people in front of me, but the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed and had to fix a lot of mistakes. The same thing happened with me. My hubby had been waiting outside for about 45 minutes for me to get us checked-in. When we made our way to our site, the access roads were pretty narrow and RVers had parked their vehicles along both sides, making it increasingly difficult to maneuver into our tight spot. Once there, we were fine and didn't experience any problems with the RV Park. Our rate reflects a military discount.
Located right off of I-15, although we were rarely bothered by road noise. Some reviews state difficult access from the south; however, we noted two solutions to this: 1) There is a newly built exit just north of the KOA, 2) If you take the Hurricane exit from the south, just take that road and turn left towards Quail Creek State Park, which is a shortcut that comes out right next to the KOA and will avoid the gravel road mentioned. The park staff were friendly and hosted a free family movie night, a free pancake breakfast, and a build-your-own-sundae for $1 while we were there. The office was being remodeled so check-in was located in the game room, which was a little weird but they made it work. The pool was open and clean. We used the pool, the playground, the tennis courts, the clubhouse, and shuffleboard and all were satisfactory. The bath house was HUGE and was clean every time I went in. The park has a large hillside right behind it, which makes for a few unlevel sites towards the back, but to us, it appeared that sites 10-63 were level. We were in site #19 and had no issues other than our cable didn't work. A staffer tried to resolve the issue unsuccessfully, but we weren't going to move sites over it when we were only there for three nights. The Wi-Fi was down while we were there, possibly due to the remodel, but the check-in host offered a $2/day credit without me even saying anything. Our rate at $28/night is lower than listed because, upon arrival, we were informed that we had enough points for a free night and she applied that discount. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, had no complaints, and would consider staying here again.
About 6 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park, this campground is full of large pine trees and well shaded. It's a bit small, but we were placed in site #E2, which was close to the front. We were immediately approached by a 'neighbor' who informed us that we were too big and needed to "go up the road where all the big guys go." We fit just fine and had plenty of room for our 41' RV and truck. Each site had a picnic table and cement fire pit. The only amenities were a small general store, a gas station without diesel, small restrooms, and a laundry room ($1.75 wash, .75 dry). The free WiFi was extremely fast and reliable. We didn't use our hotspot the entire time we were there. Considering the RV parks 'up the road' are either full-sun or won't accommodate big rigs, we would stay here again.
