Grand Canyon Camper Village, Tusayan, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Screaming winds were not the fault of the park, but the lack of dust control is. How difficult is it to seed a little grass? Infamous coin-op showers are everywhere. Almost as bad as Trailer Village, at the south rim. The only advantage is the proximity to Grand Canyon, but in the future, we'll make the drive from a better site. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Truck Camper.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

$36 is too high for a park rated as "full hookups" but only providing electric due to frozen connections. No potable water anywhere, so you're out of luck if you arrive dry. Pay showers are at Mather and take 8 quarters for 8 minutes, the first of which I spent waiting for hot water since the control valve is plumbed backwards. Shower stalls are about the size of two phone booths with a gapped curtain in between which allows water to splash onto your dry stuff (important in winter). With 86 RV spaces crammed into a few acres, this place is more like "Trailer Ghetto" than Trailer Village. Restrooms are clean and heated, but showers are roughly a mile away in the Mather Campground. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Truck Camper.

Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great value for a site so close to an urban area of 4 million. Hiking and bike trails are abundant. We came for a "star party" of star gazing lectures and activities, which is great if you're prepared for cold and dark. Most sites are reasonably level and accessible, and most have hookups. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Truck Camper.

Superstition Mountains are an awesome sight. Night sky is dark enough toward east for casual stargazing, lights of Phoenix drown out the west.

Gaviota State Park, Goleta, California

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $95.00
Overall Rating:

Reservation site claims "water available", and it was - from a spring-handled tap with no threads for a hose connection. So if you're in an RV, you are dry camping. But the ocean is nearby, so maybe that counts as water, too. Wind was screaming when we arrived, howled all night, and into the next day. We had reservations for two nights, but left after the first. Coin-op showers looked unappealing, restrooms filthy. We camped at Gaviota State Park in a Truck Camper.
