On Conception Bay. Dry camping on the water. Huge sand/beach front area for unlimited number of RV's. Just off the main highway 8 miles South of Mulege. Many other RV beach camp spots tucked in along this bay, but the road into Santispac Beach is the best for large RV's. Dark, quiet, ocean sounds. Small restaurant nearby. Lovely stop.
Welcoming park as you enter La Paz. Nightly spaces have shade, well laid out. Caravan area is in large field, newly opened, with hookups. Wi-Fi free. Busy when we were there. Wal Mart/Sam's Club a couple miles away to restock. Plenty to do in La Paz area. Easy access.
Mixed feelings on this park. You have to drive all the way through town to get to it..making for slow going. We stayed here twice..once going down then coming back. Enjoyed our second visit more for some reason. 30 amp, water and sewer. Sites are packed in with residences on one side (which are on the water) and storage units on the other. Makes it very claustrophobic. Lots of neighborhood dogs and roosters made it quite noisy all the time. Free Wi-Fi. Good Telcell. Nice pool and common areas. Lots of services in Loreto.
Dry camping at it's best. North of town. Back in sites front the Sea. No hookups, but rumor has it future electrical is in the plans. Dump station on site. Several RV parks in area, but we liked this best. Big rigs no problem. Tents allowed. No cell service but Wi-Fii can be found here and there back in town. Drive in on fair sand/gravel road past a few residences, past the RV storage area right to the end of the road at the water. Quiet, dark and one a few RV parks still actually on the water.
Built in an olive grove. Tough to find over potholed sand/gravel road, but for Mexico, a nice, quiet and growing family camp. Use Church's book for directions. Large RV's will have to ask owner for alternate set up spots. We couldn't make the turns for the existing spots, but English speaking owner was most accomodating. Used extension cord for 15 amp plug in and long water hose for hook ups. Pool, playground for families.
Our first night after crossing border at Tecate. About 50 miles south of Tecate on Hwy. 3. Free, overnight RV parking with a winery tour and wine tasting. No pressure to purchase wine. Large sand field inside vineyards, next to immaculate B & B, restaurant, stables at private winery. No hookups. Terrible road off main highway to get there...potholed sand road. Quiet, dark and safe. Plenty of room for any size rig once you get there.
If the tide is in, I guess you could call it waterfront. The rest of the time the bay becomes a mud flat. Great for birding. Some of the sites are very difficult to back a fifth wheel into due to narrow street and trees on the front corners of each space. 30 amp at our site, water and sewer on site. WiFi free. Nice pool and hot spa. Utilities in some sites are located in strange places. Guard gated. Secure, quiet. Not our favorite stop, but acceptable.
Free overnight stop. Pretty area. No marked sites, but huge area for any size and amount of rv's. We found one water spigot that flowed to top off with. Fair sand/gravel road access. No other services. Quiet.
Our favorite stop in the Baja. Truly ocean-front sites available. Other sites further back, but most have some water view. Full hook ups. Free wifi at office/laundry. Breezy, but tons of windsurfers/kite surfers to watch. Pull through sites. Any size will fit. Quiet, secure. Great town to visit. Telcell good.
30 amp outlets, water and sewer at most sites. Sewer was acting up. Recovering from earlier flooding of Mulege river. Friendly, welcoming hosts. Sites separated by white boulders..watch your turns. Laundry on property. Lots of dogs..all friendly. Secure, quiet and dark at night. Services in Mulege nearby. Telcell good. No wifi.
Nice stop. New entrance off Hwy. 1 on upper level. Power (15 amp) ok, water and sewer at site. Telcell good. Free WiFi at office/restaurant on site. Secure. A bit of noise from nightly semis rolling by. Two levels for rv parking. Big rigs no problem. Swimming pool appears to be functional. Pemex nearby. Nice park for the Baja.
Two separate areas at this park. First is directly surrounding the restaurant complex with 15 amp/water/sewer sites and the second behind that with a large block wall surrounding it. There are two tall, swinging gates to enter this area...East and West ends. Manager needs to open these to enter this park. Check with office. West entrance had larger turning access to enter...go very slow with big rigs...requires careful maneuvering. Electric fluctuated greatly and my surge shut it off consistently, so I ended up unhooking from the electric. Good restaurant at location. Telcell service good. WiFi on site.
Nice location. Quiet. Ocean view from all sites. Road into park from main highway, like most RV parks in Baja is in rough shape. Dirt/Sand pot-holed, sink holes, rutted...low branches along side of road. Go slow. Once in park, plenty of room for any size rig. Half dozen or so 15 amp electric plugs located along North back in sites only. All other areas are no hook ups. Water spigots here and there. Owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome...still slow business in Baja. No sewer that I could find. Showers/toilets OK.
Rate is based on monthly discount plus metered electric (11 cents/kw). Stayed for 5 weeks. Friendly residents. Large majority are park models, with nightly rv sites spread among the park. Interior roads are narrow..,making backing in to your site a challenge. Our 40' fifth wheel took a fair amount of maneuvering to get it right. Power posts/water etc are dead center in space..about 5 feet into your site, which makes it even more of a challenge to set your rig just right. Lots are really designed for future park models. Each lot has a palm tree in the front corners of each lot making it even more of a challenge..but we made it without damage. Bear in mind that Desert Hot Springs is in a wind tunnel. It can be very windy here, when the wind hardly blows just 20 minutes down the road in Palm Springs proper. Quiet park. Security patrols. Gated. Pool is great and comfortably warm. 2 jacuzzis. Great public rooms, billiards, game room, banquet hall(s) and plenty of activities if you wish to participate. Golf course was good and fairly priced. Stores/food/fuel etc all within the area albeit California prices which are high. We would return if coming back to the area as the price is reasonable compared to parks in Palm Springs/Indio, Coachella valley.
This RV park is part of CRA group of campgrounds. (Colorado River Adventures). They offer a 3 night for 10 dollar visit, if you can sit through their 90 minute 'membership' sales presentation. We love this part of Arizona. Gorgeous mountains, the water of the Colorado River/Lake Havasu, some greenery. We stay in this area often at other parks, so we thought we'd see what this park offered. All of the water view sites are filled with park models and they have a lot of them. The RV sites are on several different levels as this area slopes downward to the river/lake. Sites are tight, our 40 ft. fifth wheel took the entire length. Other tow vehicles/toads are parked in empty sites or partially blocking interior roads. If it were really busy here, it would be a zoo. They do have a cute, 9 hole golf course at an inexpensive rate. One pool/spa for the entire complex is also used by residents as well as there are three different motels on property. They have a marina. They have a restaurant. They have an activity schedule many months. Included Wi-Fi at our site was 2 bars, limited AT&T cell. Generally satellite TV will work, but there are some trees. Provided cable TV had a few channels but was very snowy. The overall appearance of this park is dated. Storage everywhere. Many sites near us had rigs parked, but nobody living in them. Boats, RV's, golf carts, trailers, storage buildings as you drive in. They are installing new park models in parking areas. There was a whole field full of rusting metal, junk, etc., hiding behind a wall of plants. Their non-member nightly rate is $50 or more (with electric added): way overpriced for what you get. A membership in their system is in the many thousands, plus yearly fees. This location is beautiful, but spoiled by the crowded conditions, lack of upkeep and dated systems. We will continue looking and not return.
Passport America rate in November. Wanted to check out one of the 'mega parks' in this area for future considerations. Huge park: mostly park models/single wides with some RV's parked amongst them long term. To me, it's a stick built subdivision that let some RV's in. Guard gated with code for after hours. As others have stated, transient/overnighters are parked on the 'hot lot,' near the office/pool, which is a large cement lot with hook ups, side by side down the row. A place to spend the night (or two) but Wal-Mart has the same thing (without the hookups of course). Checked out the facilities. They have a ton of things going on. Warm pool/partially covered. Nice large covered spa. Friendly staff and 'hello's' from the residents as they went by on their morning walks or bikes or golf carts. An older park, on the edge of Casa Grande. Not as dazzling as some other places we saw for about the same (regular) rate. Mixed feelings about this place as the residents I met like it here, but it wasn't my thing. Train bothered us: sounded long and loud horns several times all night long. Not the park's fault of course, but it is a consideration. Provided cable good, AT&T cell ok and Verizon air card worked. Since there are no trees, of course satellite TV was fine. Even though the rate was fair, and maybe fine for some, we will continue looking and would not come back.
We're not an Escapee member but they welcomed us as we were passing through Deming. All gravel. Some trees. Large, wide sites. Good power/full hook ups. Easy access from I-10. Fair price. AT&T cell strong, Verizon air card good. No problem for satellite TV. Wi-Fi at park as stated by others in pay for use: we didn't. Day we were here, there was an evening meal in clubhouse. Only 6 bucks for a great meal. Certainly would visit again.
Really located in White's City...not Carlsbad. Easy to find as the town is tiny. Good Sam rate. Sites are dated as they are not really designed for the bigger units of today, but we did get our 40' fiver with three slides into a pull through. A bit close to neighbor, but passable. Entry roads are fine. A small cover is over your provided picnic table. Full hook ups with 50 amp. Some trees for shade, but satellite TV worked fine if you park right. AT&T cell was fine. Free wi-fi was acceptable. Just a short drive into Carlsbad Caverns NP. Cute store/gift shop, post office and other amenities at entrance/check in. There is a restaurant across street. Gas station appeared to be closed. I suggest filling up in Carlsbad. Pretty sunsets. Minor leveling on asphalt pads, gravel and thatch everywhere else. I would return.
Spent a week. Weekly rate plus electric ended up being about the same as paying a nightly rate, which includes electric, and the rate is 17 cents per kilowatt. Sites are owned. Empty sites entered in the rental pool for 'us'. Many sites still for sale and undeveloped. While the 'owners' we met were friendly enough, we felt a bit like intruders. As others have indicated, no activities here except larger pool and hot tub. Pool was a bit cool for my taste even though it was 'heated'. Spa was fine. Rec room with books for trade. As others have said, garbage needs to be taken to the front of the park and thrown into a dumpster. I either drove or rode my bike to take my garbage, a bit inconvenient. Clean bathrooms/shower located in rec room complex, but a LONG way from many sites might exclude using them on a regular basis. No views of the Gulf from any site. A long boardwalk leads from rear of park up and over the dunes down to the beach. I rarely went. No services very close as this park is set 30 minutes out of Corpus Christi. If you like to fish, then meet for 'happy hour' every afternoon around 4 pm and talk about your day, this is your park. "Free" included wi-fi was incredibly slow and dropped me quite often, and I was just doing email. Forget about video. AT&T cell service was fine. Satellite TV was no problem. While probably a fine park for some, it was just OK for us.
Yes, it's just 150 yards from I-10. Yes, the garbage cans were full and spilling over. Yes, it only has 12 sites, with a couple of them being occupied by local/long term workers. Yes, the bathroom/shower building is in dire need of repair; I don't believe it functioned. Yes, the sites are in a flat, grassy/gravel field behind the motel, next to an old cracked and run down tennis court. But! it is relatively quiet. We felt safe. Full hook ups with solid 30 amp power. Cordial and friendly gal at motel desk for check in. Pay your money and go pick a spot, no registration needed. Plenty of room for the biggest of rigs, pull through or back in. A welcome place to sleep at a great (Passport) rate in the middle of nowhere. AT&T cell phone good. Marginal Verizon air card. No shade to speak of so satellite TV is no problem. We'd stop again if we were passing by.
Large flat field with RV sites. Gravel with grass. Close to your neighbor, but for us as an overnight stop, it worked fine. Passport America made it a good deal even though we arrived late in day, obtained the only site left and they honored the Passport rate. We appreciate that. Pull through site long enough to not need to unhook. Park was full of ATV's on trailers that come and go all day, and lots of pipeline workers stay here long term, but that didn't bother us at all. AT&T cell ok, park has free Wi-Fi. It was strong. No problem with satellite TV reception. Near main road and there was some traffic noise, which tapered off as the night wore on. Convenient to Interstate on/off. Easy to find, easy to leave. We would return if passing through again.
Great place to visit. Limited electric hook up sites, (only 12) most require reservation in summer. We snagged one of two non-reserved electric sites when we arrived on a week day. $28 rate is non-resident, electric hook up. Non electric sites and Montana residents cost less. Our pull through site was huge with plenty of room left over even with our 40' fiver/three slides and truck. Most sites are back in. Minor leveling needed. Campground has no buffer/plantings between sites, but roomy enough for privacy. Some shade but mostly open. Web site says barbecues at sites: not true, but each site does have fire ring. One tipi site and a couple of cabins also for rent. Very kid friendly: good playground, great biking for kids. Evening ranger programs. At&T cell marginal, Verizon air card slow, but doable. No problem for satellite. $2.00 for 4 minute showers. A handful of water spigots in each loop: bring a full tank with, or fill at dump station or bring LOTS of hose. Be sure to take the cavern tour. Outstanding and very reasonable: $10 adults. Clean, quiet, very dark at night. Would definitely return if passing through again.
Arrived without reservation, friendly staff assigned us a large, on the river site. Quiet, relaxing. Really enjoyed the hot springs pool: the perfect temperature for me, which was hot! I didn't try the smaller, even hotter indoor pool as it was too hot for me. No AT&T cell here, Verizon air card did work. No sewer on site, dump station at entrance. DirecTV satellite no problem from my site. Other sites may have some tree issues. A nice find, I recommend a visit and would come back in the future.
Great find. Highly recommend. Planned on stop. Rate reflects Senior 1/2 off plus $5 nightly utility charge: not $2.00 as indicated on web site. A locals favorite and they are very protective of 'their' park! We had numerous knocks on our door asking when we were going to be leaving, even though our tag showed our check out date! The nearby lake is gorgeous and very busy during the day, even though the water is chilly. Saw deer in our site. Only wish they had a dump station on site. No AT&T cell/internet. If you drive a short way toward the main road, you can get a bar or two of Verizon cell: if you're lucky. Even with the trees, we were able to get a shot for DirecTV. We biked here, enjoyed the beautiful scenery and found it very peaceful. Great camphosts, clean vault toilets. Most sites fairly level and large. Plenty of room for the largest of rigs. With so few available sites, I recommend arriving on a weekday by noon. Definitely would return.
Good Sam nightly rate. RV sites are a bit tight for my tastes, not terribly wide, but not too many choices in St. Mary. No AT&T here, but Verizon strong: both air card and cell. DirecTV no problem. Nice views of St. Mary valley from this park. Wi-Fi only at/near office, so I used my air card. Though RV sites are on a set up a sloping hillside, front to back is fairly level. Left to right may require some leveling for larger rigs. Tent spaces well separated from RV sites. No campfires allowed in RV sites. Very convenient for touring East Side of Glacier Park. Note that local fuel/supplies are limited and expensive: plan ahead. Would stay again if visiting this area.
Stayed 12 nights: very convenient for seeing the beauty of West Glacier area. A variety of sites for all rigs from large coaches to the smallest tent. Wi-Fi strong, we were able to hit satellite for DirecTV, but many sites wouldn't work. Choose carefully if you want some satellite TV while here. Would come back if returning to West Glacier.
Easy access off I-80. All gravel sites with a tad of grass/growth outside door. 10 or so sites were occupied by long-term tenants, a few with skirts. Adequate for our needs: overnight and then move on. Power/water/sewer all fine. Free Wi-Fi was strong. No shade so no problem with satellite TV. About 100 yards off freeway but didn't bother us: fairly quiet here. We'd stop again if passing.
Spent 3 weeks here visiting family in Sparks. Great location for my needs. Pool comfortably warm, spa great. Good utilities/Direct TV no problem. Grounds kept extremely clean. Artificial turf at each site: table, ground lighting at night. The sewer dump location at each site is in your NEIGHBORS parking space next to their rig instead of at/next to utility pole/water location. Not a big issue, but a bit odd. Lots of sites here: not full even over July 4. Quiet, family friendly, good laundry. Game room. Definitely come back in the future.
Nice stop enroute to Tahoe. Has a variety of different size sites: some partial shade. A few sites with nice views of Topaz Lake. Convenient restaurant/casino/gas station/convenience store on site. Minor leveling required. Good utilities. Wi-Fi free, but slow and got kicked off quite often. Good Sam rate. Pool is 4-8' deep. No spa. Didn't use bathroom/showers as we use our own. No AT&T cell, good Verizon cell and Verizon internet. Direct TV/satellite shot good from most sites. Would return again if going through area. Quiet, yet right off main hwy 395.
Previous reviewers for 2011 are accurate. We spent two nights here while visiting the museum, which is first rate, albeit in need of maintenance and cleaning. The $28 dollar per night rate does include an adult museum admission, which saves $11 dollars, so really a pretty good deal. There are only a dozen sites with sewer hook up. The remainder are electric and water only. While I don't use the restrooms/showers I did go in them and they are in dire need of repairs. Tile is falling off shower walls, the paint is flaking and there is a lot of rusty water stains from faucets dripping. Our campsite faucet handle was broken, someone had driven over the fixture, bending the pipe. It appears to have been that way for some time. The grounds themselves just need a good clean up. The adjacent motel condition makes the RV campground look even worse as the bushes are overgrown and weeds are coming up through the parking lot cracks. The roads in and out of this RV park have large pot holes, and signage for the park and registration is poor. That being said, as it is the only place to camp, they must feel no improvements are needed yet. Voltage was good, water pressure was good. Dump station is hidden behind four dumpsters so you can't get real close to the sewer lid. AT&T cell service and Verizon air card worked. Sites on the South Row of the RV Park will allow for satellite TV. Other sites are iffy due to large trees. The trains tear through Minden on a regular basis, laying on their horn as they cross the main intersection: which is only two blocks from the rv park. But thankfully, I didn't hear any come through after 10 pm while we were here. There is a bit of highway noise from trucks using their engine brakes as they come into Minden, but that is not something the RV Park management can do anything about. I got used to it after the first night. Overall, an acceptable and safe place to stay for a night or two and I would come back.
While exploring this part of Wisconsin we came upon this nice little city campground. While we did not overnight here, I thought knowing about this campground may help others if in this area as very few campgrounds are listed in this part of Wisconsin. 30 amp sites with water. No dump station that I could find. One portable toilet. No other washrooms or showers. Nicely laid out, side by side hookups. Grass sites. Weekly and monthly rates available. Quiet area, nestled up against the Kickapoo River. Boating/kayaking, fishing in area. AT&T cell, Verizon air card ok. Satellite TV pointing appeared to be no problem. Some sites shaded, others in the open. Next to county fairgrounds. I would recommend this nice little park for anyone passing through this area. Located at the south end of 'School Avenue', south of old high school.
A great little find in the small town (650) of Soldier's Grove. While visiting this area for my wife's high school reunion, we came upon this city park/campground. Side by side hook ups. 30 amp with water. Dump station available. No public restrooms, so self contained is what works here. Being a city park, it also has tennis courts, a small skateboard park (no one used it while we were here), a playground, basketball court and volleyball court. Pull through sites big enough for the largest of rigs. Sites are all grass. Some sites back up to Kickapoo River. Plenty of width between units. You pay your nightly fee at the local pharmacy, gas station or city hall when open. Sites are not numbered. AT&T cell service, Verizon air card were fine and being fairly open, no problem with satellite TV. There were 6 other rigs here during our stay. If you have a reason to be in this part of Wisconsin, I can recommend this park. No phone number or reservations that I could find. It is also called Veterans Memorial Park on some signs. Located in the center of 'town'. Just GPS town center and you'll find it.
Nice park...winds up the gulch...many pull-throughs, not real wide sites, but adequate. Friendly check in staff. Good 50 amp power. Strong water. AT&T cell strong, Verizon air card strong. DirectTV no problem. Decent fiberglass pool, too cool for me, but many were swimming. Large laundry. Sites were level. Very close to town..maybe a mile or so. We chose to drive in and park instead of taking trolley which does leave right from the park office ($1.00 each trip). Great location for visiting sites of Deadwood and surrounding area. We arrived in mid July without a reservation..no problem getting in. Definitely would return if we came back to this area.
This is a review of the Colter Bay Campground, not RV village/Park. We arrived without a reservation and were placed in a nice, generator friendly space. Campground generally filled by late afternoon every day we were there. Note that not all loops allow generator usage. Generator hours are 8am-8pm. Almost all sites in this large campground are 'pull through' along the sides of each loop road, so you may have to enter the 'exit' in order to have your door not face the street. Park personnel friendly, check in efficient, campfires allowed. Park personnel are also VERY bear aware...they will remove ANY items left outside your tent/rig other than a chair or bicycle unless you are present and using them, so the campground looks like everyone is either gone or inside. I guess that's OK. Marginal AT&T cell reception..better at visitor center. Limited Verizon air card and tough to get any satellite shots in the campground due to the large trees..but I guess we really don't go to the Tetons to watch much television anyway. I do question how they measure the length of their sites, as we were told we got one of the 'few' large RV sites, yet when we biked around, there were, in my opinion, dozens of sites capable of handling our 38' fifth wheel and truck. Overall, great location at a fair price for touring the Teton area. A bit of a drive to also tour Yellowstone from there.
Decided to stay here as we saw they had a hot springs pool. But they have so much more. We 'camped' in their 12 space 'golf course' field lot, across the road from their little 9 hole golf course. 30 amp/water/sewer. Short walk takes you to their restaurant/pizza parlor; the 1st tee on the golf course (only $9.50 to play). The 'cool' pool is 75 degrees or so with large waterslide. The 'hot springs' pool and hot tub was 92 and 105 degrees, respectively. Absolutely wonderful for relaxing. Note that water activities were an extra fee, but reasonable. All day pass or one time use available. Verizon cell/air card good, minimal AT&T service. We did get Direct TV through a hole in the trees. Relatively large complex with many permanent residents, but they are located far from the overnight area. Small convenience store. Propane. Hard to find with GPS: call for exact directions. A wonderful find. Definitely would come back if in the area.
Sockeye is one of the half dozen NFS campground units at Redfish Lake South of Stanley. Newly renovated...large/long and wide asphalt pads, some single some double. No hook ups here. Dump station within a mile. Limited services. Gas available, no diesel, no propane in park...need to go to Stanley...about 15 minutes. Generator use from 8 am until 10 pm allowed...we did. Stunning setting in Sawtooth. Cold and wet when we were here. Park was not full. Maybe too early in season? No At&t...Verizon OK. Limited shots for satellite TV from Sockeye spots. Views of Lake and Sawtooth Mountains from sites 6-11. Stayed 3 nights. No reservations accepted in Sockeye unit. Other units had full reservations..no space. We would probably return if passing through.
Great little place. Strong power, water and Wi-Fi. The best in a long time at an RV park and no registration: instant on. Wide, grassy/gravel spaces. Don't use washrooms/showers, but looked in: clean/tidy. Laundry only a buck to wash or dry. Free breakfast for RV'ers each morning. Nice setting. Quiet and relaxing. Half full when we were here in mid June. Good Sam rate. Verizon and At&T full strength here. Direct TV was no problem. Small mini golf, horseshoe pit, public outdoor sitting area, volleyball net and a couple of communal fire pits, including some wood provided. Pretty scenery North: mountains/snow and South to the plains. Definitely would visit again if passing this way.
We passed the RV section (full hookups) for a more secluded spot in the electric/water only loops. Decent roads in. Adequate for any size rig. Heavily wooded: couldn't get any Direct TV. Strong AT&T and Verizon. Pretty setting. 30 amp service good/water pressure low. Dump station if needed. Quiet. Close to lake. Good bicycle area. Close to McCall for supplies. Overall a very nice experience. We would return.
Stayed Boise area for family wedding. This park was very well located for our needs. Very busy when we were here. Many full time/permanent rigs located throughout the park. Sites are fairly long and easy access, but not terribly wide. They do cram a lot of units on their property. Not our first preferred method of 'camping', but very adequate for our needs at the time. Wi-Fi worked very well, solid power/water. Didn't use bathrooms/showers as we use our own. Good Sam rate: stayed 4 days. We would stay again if in the area.
Came down from Las Vegas for Christmas week. Made fully paid reservation but when we arrived the park is absolutely EMPTY..A total of 12 various rigs here. Very sad actually. Strong 50 amp service..voltage a bit high..running around 132, water and sewer OK. We have beachfront. Wi-Fi included and very strong. Town is also quite barren of visitors and locals need business. No hassles/no problems...a nice getaway. Other parks were very empty as well. Would return. Hope things improve for these folks.
Previous posts reflect the quality of this park. We originally booked a 'river' site, back in for our 38' 5'ver. Site was a bit tight plus river access/view is actually blocked by a 3-4 high rock berm that appears to have been added for flood prevention. This wall limits the 'ambience' of paying a bit extra for a river-side lot. We moved to a larger, pull through with no problem. No AT&T cell reception, Verizon air card varied from 1-4 bars, based on time of day. I had intermittent 'free' Wi-Fi at my site, even though the Wi-Fi antenna was 3 sites away. I just used my air card. Pool was nice, spa was hot. This is a clean and inviting park. Pricey, but the best in area. Has nightly activities such as movie night, cards, ice cream novelty night, etc. Park was not close to full anytime we were here and we stayed for a week in August. Friendly, professional staff. A great place to stay and we'd come back.
FYI only! Rating and price are because I had to enter an entry. We tried to stop here first week August on way through area. Terrible flood occurred in Kanab that week and this campground got seriously flooded, with substantial damage. We could not stay, as owner had no available, non damaged spaces. A sad situation as it appears he has spent considerable time, money and effort getting this nice little park in good shape. Check with this park by phone before you go.
Large, 2 loop NFS campground, just off the main highway, with sites for all types and sizes of camping rigs, from tents to motor mansions. IMO, better than private park just down the road as sites are bigger, wider and more space between. Just that there are no hook ups. The rate reflects Access Pass rate. When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon in August, there was no one here but the friendly camp host. Good verizon air card, no AT&T cell at all, DirectTV was good through the trees. Wish there was a dump site though, but water spigots are at each bathroom, and bathrooms (pit toilets) were clean and lighted at night. There is some road noise from the main highway located next to the campground and some light spills into the South loop from the gas station complex located across highway from campground, so you're not totally in the dark at night here. We definitely would stay here again if we were coming this way.
Not sure how other reviewers determine 'upper' from 'lower' at this park. I assumed 'lower' means closer to lake, which isn't necessarily the case. Hook up sites are in A-F loops and non-hook ups are numbered loops 1-4. but, 'D' loop is physically a bit 'lower' than 'B' loop for example as the 'D' loop is newer. 'F' loop is South of and right across road from 'B' loop. I believe that the A loop is the oldest and F the newest. In any case, we arrived here late July, no reservation and got the last hook up site. Appears that D and F loops are the most congested as many rigs were side by side with slides kissing neighbor slides. We were in B loop. Had a great, huge site, very private. IMO, the D and F loops were more like an urban 'RV PARK', the other loops were more like a national or state park 'campground' with bigger sites, more privacy between sites, bigger trees, more mature vegetation. Best Wi-Fi I have had in months, free and coming in from the lodge about 1/4 mile away. Nicely laid out hook up pad. Good, 50 amp power. Full AT&T cell, Verizon air card strong and no problem with DirecTV. Fire rings/grill/table at site. Nice view to Lake Powell from almost all sites as entire campground slopes up the hill from the water. Friendly check in. Quiet at night and quite dark. Lots to do in area. We definitely would stay here again.
Goulding's has done a great service to traveler's in this part of the country. A great RV park, grocery, fuel station/car wash, motel, museum, gift shop and more, all located within a mile or two of each other. RV Park pretty much fills by sunset and is virtually emptied out again by noon. Every imaginable type of rig here from small tents to motor mansions and a high volume of rental class C's passing through. End row sites have great view down the canyon toward Monument Valley itself. Level sites, some tight for bigger rigs with toads. Good power, water and sewer. We had sporadic Wi-Fi, but it is included. Warm indoor pool, but very crowded and being indoors, it was loud. Good laundry. Clean grounds. AT&T cell and Verizon internet good. DirectTV had a clear shot, despite the high canyon walls on each side of campground. Navajo tours of Monument Valley leave right from campground office. I highly recommend the sunset tour. I don't recommend driving your own vehicle onto the dirt/dusty and potholed road into Monument Valley itself. Save your vehicle, take a tour. Courteous, professional and informative staff throughout all of Goulding's properties. The 'Spirit Show' media presentation at Goulding's lodge is free to campers and well worth the hour or so. Good Sam and other discounts apply at RV Park. A great place to park for a few days. We definitely would come back if we were passing through again.
Note that rate of $20 includes a daily use fee of $6. If you have a state park pass, the nightly rate then is only $14. A GREAT price for a wonderful campground. Minor leveling even for a big rig. Solid, 50 amp electric. Limited water, bring plenty with you. Dump station on site: no rinse water. Bathrooms were clean. Dishwashing sink with running water outside the bathroom building. Portable jug filling only. No showers. Exceptional location for visiting Moab area, Arches NP, Canyonlands NP, etc. Remarkable views of Colorado River basin and Colorado Plateau just one mile down the road from campground. Ranger program in the evening. Nice presentations. Ranger came around and invited us personally to evening programs! As most visitors just blow right on by. Camp fills late in day. Marginal AT&T cell, zero to one bar if lucky. Verizon Air card worked (two bars) with an exterior antenna/booster. Satellite TV was no problem as all trees/shrubs etc., are below trailer height. All sites have 'cabana' over picnic table with overhead 110 volt light, a nice touch. Very dark and quiet, IMO a stunning place to stay at a great price. If they'd let us, we'd stay for weeks. We'll be back!
Other reviews are fairly accurate except I disagree with the 'unlevel' sites. Minor leveling needed for entire campground. WiFi weak away from office. AT&T cell and Verizon air card at full strength here plus no problem with satellite TV. Most sites have a shade tree at front of each site/between sites, but trees need to be trimmed up higher for taller rigs, we backed out of our pull through as to not hit the branches at front of our site. They don't accept Good Sam, even though their web site says they do, plus they have some Good Sam stickers on windows at office and laundry. They do give discounts for over 55, AAA and casino players card. Laundry is small: 4 washers and two dryers; dryers didn't dry very well. Small playground for kids, but full of weeds. A horseshoe pit, but no shoes. (For us, no big deal). Pool is 3 feet, 6 inches deep throughout. 'Hot tub' is really a one foot deep kid pool: no jets. Didn't try the sauna next to pool. Laundry and pool hours are 8-8. Casino food was of good quality and reasonable price. IMO the casino was not overly smokey, but was warm when crowded. We received a rate of about $23 per night with some discounting. About 15 total rigs here in Mid July during the week. I understand that late August for pow wow it is sold out. Gift shop, snack bar, restaurant, casino, hotel, rv park, and large fuel station here. Very satisfied and we would come back.
Nice, family park. It is for sale as of this month. Lots of work kampers here. We were told 7 couples and you see them everywhere. Friendly and they run a tight ship here. Sites are gravel and close together. Older park but in fairly good shape. Bigger rigs don't leave room in pad for tow vehicle or toads, therefore there are quite a few vehicles parked on edges of road, also on weird angles, making the park seem more crowded. Nice, warm pool. Creek had very little water running in it and no creek noise at all. Creek sites cost extra. Campground is in a canyon. No AT&T at my site. Verizon air card had two bars. Brochure says Wi-Fi, but we couldn't get it at our site. Others said they could at other locations. Direct TV with good aim in certain sites. High, south canyon wall next to campground. Heavily wooded. Office, laundry, rec room and pool at upper level. About 100 yards and a steep, paved road down to campground below. About a 10 minute drive into Durango. We'd probably come back if we were in the area again.
Nice Colorado State Park with 25 sites. No utilities, but has dump station. Small fishing lake within a short walk of campground. Heavily wooded, well spaced and private sites. No problem for our 38' fifth wheel. About 9 miles from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park. Good AT&T cell service and Verizon internet. A bit of work to find an open 'hole' in the woods for our direct TV but got it to work. Rarely saw camp hosts, but park personnel through park quite often. Saw deer in camp. 3 water spigots located throughout campground but are far from most sites, bring long hoses to add water to tanks. Pit toilets were clean. No showers. Great price for a nice camp spot, great location. 7,000 ft elevation, warm days, cool nights. Campfires allowed.
Another beautiful Colorado State Park. Large park with different camping loops. We stayed in the Dutch Charlie/Dakota loop. 30 amp electric at site, water nearby but not at site, dump station. The Dakota loop has expansive views of the mountains and some have reservoir views also. The upper section at Dutch Charlie is 150 feet higher with closer site spacing, higher trees around to block views. Lower campground at Po Cha loop has full hookups, but unless your on the river, IMO not as nice as Dakota loop for ambience. Great laundry on site. Note campground fee does not include $6 daily motorized vehicle fee unless you have Colorado annual state park sticker ($60). Bike trails/hiking/swim beach (but cold), boating and fishing. Bigger rigs may need some blocking for level. We had a nice shade cabana over our picnic table, some don't. DirectTv good, AT&T cell strong, Verizon air card 2 bars. Quiet, friendly, weekend ranger programs. During the week, we have been one of only a few rigs in the campground, with weekends are closer to full. Great location for touring this part of Colorado, including Ouray, Silverton, Telluride etc., all within an hours drive or so. Groceries and fuel close by in Ridgway (about 10 minutes) and there is a Wal-Mart in Montrose (about 30 minutes). We definitely would come back.
Another fine Colorado State Park. Large, level sites. We had a wonderful view of the lake and surrounding mountains from high up on the hill. Very clean/meticulous upkeep. Each site appears to be hand raked and spotless when we arrived. We couldn't get AT&T cell here but we could get marginal Verizon Air card service. DirectTv no problem. Good electric and water. Not crowded at all when we were here, many sites to choose from. A very relaxing and quiet location. We would return.
We stopped here for one night. Convenient to freeway, but no freeway noise. Older campground, tight quarters, friendly checkin hostess as she let us choose from four sites and we picked the least crowded site. Many long term units and daily sites are surrounded by full time, mobile homes, but had we had no noise or issues from that. Pool small, we didn't use as it had only been open for a week (cold). Gravel sites, cell service and Directv ok. No cable TV at site. If you're passing through and need to stop, it works.
National Forest Service Campground, on East end of Blue Mesa Reservoir, 16 miles West of Gunnison. A loop has full hook ups, B, C and D have none. Dump station with potable water on site. We dry camped with solar and generator in B loop. Marina and small restaurant here as well. Friendly hosts, nice mesa views, water views. Low vegetation, few trees, very windy. Our loop was empty except for us. Loop A with utilities was full. A nice, inexpensive stop for touring Black Canyon, no daily fee.
