About Denise and Glenn

Full-timers since September with no sticks-and-bricks as of December 2016. Originally from Washington and Hawaii, we've lived in Arizona, Washington, Colorado, and now South Dakota together. We bought our first RV in August 2016, a 45' toy hauler, and we pull it with a Freightliner HDT.

Ambassador RV Resort, Caldwell, Idaho

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This was an overnight stop, we've been here before and knew we would fit. The price reflects 10% off for AAA discount. The bathrooms here are individual and spotless. They even provide bath mats! Close enough to Boise to get all the OTA channels on TV. We will stay here any time we pass through this area. We camped at Ambassador RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Dazzo's Desert Oasis (formerly Dazzo's Restaurant & RV Park), Wikieup, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Dazzo's as an overnight stop on the way north from Tucson to WA state. The price reflects Passport America discount. We stayed in site #11, which was long enough for us to stay hooked up. We ate dinner at the grill, the pork burgers were delicious! Used the shower, the bathrooms could use a good cleaning (still), lots of dust and barely enough toilet paper with no extras in sight. Perhaps that gets "borrowed" by the more permanent residents. The shower itself was clean, but the rest of the bathroom - which was a complete unit with sink and toilet - could have used a bit of help. For an overnight stop it was fine, and even if you're not staying the night we can recommend the grill for a meal. The owners were friendly and helpful, and I think would have found a spot for us even if the hookup sites had been full. We would stay again when passing through. We camped at Dazzo's Desert Oasis (formerly Dazzo's Restaurant & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Not much going on in Wikieup, so this little "oasis" is basically it. The grill is good, food is well-prepared and tasted good. Sign outside says they'll meet or beat prices from any other RV park in town.

Voyager RV Resort & Hotel, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This was our fourth stay at Voyager since we started full-timing. This time we stayed 8 nights, and had a job to do - we moved our storage unit contents to Tucson so we could work on getting rid of our stuff when we come back for the winter! The park was fairly empty, the "season" hasn't yet started. The gals in the office were great, and found an easy pull-through for us. It worked out well and even had room for us to park the moving truck in our site, along with our 45' fifth wheel AND our Freightliner. We ate at the bar & grill almost every day, and while we didn't use any of the other facilities it looked like everything was available while we were there. We're looking forward to returning in January! We camped at Voyager RV Resort & Hotel in a Fifth Wheel.

Dream Catcher RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This was an overnight stop on our way from Denver to Tucson. The park is clean, and our site was big enough for us to stay hooked up. We walked to the hotel next door for dinner. The bathrooms and showers are connected to the lounge area, and they were clean. We didn't use the showers this time, but we always check them out wherever we stop. This is a nice location, with excellent rates for Escapees members. We would stop again if we're passing through. We camped at Dream Catcher RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Chatfield State Park, Littleton, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed ten nights at this park, in the same site we chose last October. And on the same day, October 10, we experienced the first snow of the season. This year it was very cold too - down to 13 degrees, setting a new record! Our site was a back-in, and we like it because it has trees for shade, and feels a bit more private because the front yard faces a field. Chatfield has natural vegetation, so a high prairie feel with grass and sparse trees and large shrubs. The roads are paved, and the sites are asphalt with a cement pad for the trailer to sit on. Sites are well-spaced and easy to get into. The D loop has larger sites and FHU. The C loop is the only one that will be open in winter, and it only has electric. There are some larger sites in C loop, and several with a view of the reservoir. If you have a larger rig, enter from Santa Fe Rd / Titan Rd. The entrance off of Wadsworth has a 13' limit (doesn't apply when leaving, only when entering. We like Chatfield's peace and quiet, but it's a long haul to the side of town where our family lives. But since you can only stay 14 days out of 45 at Colorado's state parks, it's worth it for a longer stay in the area. Be aware in the fall, they shut the water off. The date is clearly posted on the website - this year it was October 15. Also posted at the bathrooms, so you have time to be prepared if you're already there. Dump station and potable water available all year. We camped at Chatfield State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Highlands Ranch is close for shopping, King Soopers and Home Depot there, along with the popular fast food places. Littleton to the north also has everything you could need. We love El Meson, a family-owned restaurant off Santa Fe between the park and the C-470 freeway. Great selections, some unique.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed nine nights this time. Since we started our full-time journey here, we've stayed at this park many times. The higher rates this year were noticeable, but still a bargain compared to other parks in the metro area (and there aren't many!). Daily pass required, buy the annual pass if you're going to be in Colorado parks more than a week. It's good at all of them, whether you're camping or just enjoying a park for the day. Cherry Creek is well-laid out, with large sites and lots of common areas with grass and large trees. Reservations are a must - if you're staying over a weekend you'll need to book several months in advance for FHU. There's a large loop for dry-camping, but the sites are shorter. Pay attention, the website has excellent descriptions and sizes are accurate. Since we still have family in the area we will be returning, and this park is much closer than the other SP option, Chatfield, although Chatfield is quieter and closer to the hills. Highway 83 and I-225 are close, so there is some traffic noise on weekends, with sirens and some street-racing fools revving their engines, but it's still not bad. Location, location, location, right?! This park is a gem. If you're a bike rider, you can go miles north or south, all the way into Denver and beyond if you want, or you can just stay inside the park. There are lots of trails to ride. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We were scheduled to stay here for two weeks, but when we arrived in the area we came over to check out our future site ahead of time. It would have been a tight fit for us, our back end would have hung over a huge drop-off, and there was no place to park the truck. There wasn't even good parking at the bath house. We felt only one site in the park would be doable for our 68' combo, and of course it was not available. The one-way road was also only one lane wide, and that makes for difficult if not impossible backing into tight spaces. The campground itself is nicely laid out, with space between sites. It's forested so there's lots of shade, and the lake is nearby. Wish we could have stayed, if you're smaller you'll probably love it. Electric only. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Custer's Gulch RV Park, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We booked two stays here with friends who were celebrating an anniversary. Our plan was to stay two weeks inside Custer State Park a couple miles away in between, but when that site turned out to be too small, the owners found us a place to stay for those two weeks. We moved to an electric-only pull-thru site for a few days, then back up to a FHU for the remainder of our stay. We really enjoyed our 25-day stay here. The park is immaculate, showers are squeaky-clean, grass is green and mowed. There are some sites without any hookups (less $$), and a few tent sites scattered around along with the FHU sites and cabins. It's dark and quiet at night, just the way we like it. You can see SO many stars, and of course there are deer if you're quiet and observant. Our rate is the average we paid, which includes the less-expensive site. Rates range from $34 - $57 for the nights we were there. The owners were delightful, and we hope to return again. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Only four miles from Custer, and even closer to the entrance to Custer State Park. The lunch buffet at the State Game Lodge is good. Drive the loop and see the buffalo (from a distance, please!!!). Don't miss the annual buffalo roundup at the end of September, it's a bucket-list kind of event. In Custer, Mt. Rushmore Brewing Co had good food and good beer, and Baker's Bakery & Cafe was a delicious breakfast or lunch option, even at the end of the season when things were winding down.

Angostura SRA, Hot Springs, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is a huge recreation area on the east side of the reservoir. There are four campgrounds on this side, and Sheps Canyon SRA on the west side has another campground and an equestrian campground. We stayed in Cascade campground, which had large spaces and lots of grass and trees. The bathrooms were clean, and the one near us had individual shower rooms. There are some ranger-led programs that would be worth attending. Campsites are electric-only, with water spigots scattered around for jug-filling. There are two dump stations located on this side. There's a paved bike path that runs along most of this shore between the campgrounds. Huge lake, lots of boats that create waves, and very windy. In fact, there was a strong windstorm the first night, and the rangers and park hosts were there the next morning evaluating all the trees and cleaning up the branches. Very nice, well-kept park, we would return in a heartbeat. We camped at Angostura SRA in a Fifth Wheel.

Left Tailrace Campground COE, Fort Thompson, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

We had booked a spot here and had it completely cancelled due to the spring flooding. Fortunately it opened up again and we were able to stay for 4 nights anyway. We're so glad we got the chance - this campground is beautiful! There are large trees for shade if you pick the right site, and the campground was easy to maneuver even in the dark! Our pull-thru had plenty of space for our large rig (68' connected). The picnic table at our site was on a concrete slab and had a wind/shade shield. The dump station is well outside the camping area and very easy to approach and navigate. There are water spigots scattered around for filling jugs and washing dishes - you're supposed to fill your tanks at the dump station. There's even a separate area for tenters with trees and grass. Overall a very nice park, we would definitely stay here again when passing through South Dakota. We camped at Left Tailrace Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Potato Creek State Park, North Liberty, Indiana

Overall Rating:

We stayed at Potato Creek State Park while waiting for some trailer mods to be made. The sites are large and spacious, and even when the park filled on the weekend we didn't feel crowded. Everything was clean, the grass was mowed, and people were very friendly. With all the green grass and trees for shade, it wound up being one of our favorite parks of the whole summer. The paved bike trail is fun to ride, and shady most of the way. That's a bonus on a warm, muggy day! We would choose to stay here again when in the area of the RV capital of the world.

Jack Pine Lodge Campground, Manistique, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Rustic, camping feel in a well-kept park with full hook-ups. Sites were well-graveled and elevated above the surrounding forest floor. Lots of trees for shade, and cut back to be out of the way of the roads. They have several pull-thrus - about 7 - and the back-ins are good-sized. We fit in ours well enough. The camp hosts are really nice and helpful, and put on a margarita happy hour, a pancake breakfast, and a build-your-own-doughnut morning. The food at the lodge is better than some, I wouldn't call it fantastic but it's as good as anything else around, and it's close. Food prices are ok, drink prices are good. Campground had free wi-fi, it worked about as well as our AT&T data, which was off-and-on. We got one TV channel out of Escanaba, but it only worked during the day, not at night. Verizon was nil. This is a nice place, quiet except for the ATV/UTVs coming and going. There are lots of trails in the area, and several other campers had their toys and used them every day. We hear it's also popular in the winter for that reason. It's about halfway between Manistique and Munising, and we took advantage of that to explore both directions. Super-reasonable price for full hookups, and everything worked fine. Bathrooms were as clean as can be expected with folks tracking dirt in from outside. We camped at Jack Pine Lodge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The big spring, Kitch-Iti-Kipi at Palms Book State Park (free). The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore (free). The water - oh my! Lake Superior is so clean, it's worth a dip! Jack's Market in Manistique has really good pasties, ready to eat or buy them frozen and reheat yourself. Yum! Dunes Saloon in Grand Marais for good food and beer, and the ride up there on H-58 is beautiful. Take the Pictured Rocks cruise, it's worth it. Sunset is best if you're into photography.

Interlochen State Park, Interlochen, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is another nice Michigan state park. Rate reflects nightly charge only. Extra for booking online, and for daily pass/entry. We had the annual pass, which is a bargain. We stayed in the south loop, which is a bit tighter for large rigs. Our site was a pie-shaped one on the corner, which everyone cut! A lot of people didn't seem to know how to swing wide, and several times they got out and moved the cones we had placed INSIDE our site to mark the corner and prevent our rig from being hit. There are larger pull-through sites in the north loop, but both loops have some tight turns for big rigs. There are sites with 30 and/or 50-amp, clearly stated online. Park was crowded on the weekend, and pretty well-used during the week. Didn't have bugs, and the weather was perfect. The south loop has an older bathhouse, and the showers came out hard with no way to control the temp, which was too warm. I felt sorry for kids, because it would have been painful and too hot for them. There are new bath houses in the north loop, with the individual shower rooms like most of the other MI state parks we stayed in this summer. Fairly close to town, so we got decent Verizon and AT&T, and the OTA TV channels from Traverse City. We camped at Interlochen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Straits State Park, Saint Ignace, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is per night, add $8 for the online reservation and $9 per day for vehicle pass unless you purchase the $33 annual pass, which is a bargain compared to some other states. We stayed in the upper loop, which has a few pull-thrus long enough for big rigs - although the curves at the end of each row can be difficult to maneuver, especially if the park is full. People tend to park their vehicles right at the edge of the pavement, which makes things very tight with our 68' combination. We followed the signs and they led us into our site facing the wrong direction, so we had to reorient ourselves. It might be worth a recon trip if you book one of those pull-thrus, they face both directions. The park does pack 'em in pretty close, but it's a great location for the activities in the area. Lots of campfire smoke in the evenings, as is typical in state parks. This one has some trails with Mackinac bridge lookouts, and you can ride your bike on the roads but be aware the lower campground is quite a bit lower and has a steep hill to climb back out. We checked the lower loops for size and didn't think we'd fit in any of those spots. There are some right at the water's edge with NO hookups, and NO generators allowed. The upper campground seemed more spacious and had less trees. If you're in a tent or small trailer keep that in mind, the lower campground is very cozy. There's a trail from the campground to the rest area/visitor center that's off the freeway, so you can get brochures and information about the area if you missed it on your way in. Nice campground, we'd stay here again. We camped at Straits State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mackinac Island. It's less than a mile to dock #1, you can ride your bike there and take it on the ferry. They'll also pick you up and take you back to the campground. Crossing the Mackinac bridge is $4 each way for cars or motorcycles and $5 per axle for us big guys, so plan on spending some time on each side to reduce the need to cross multiple times.

North Higgins Lake State Park, Roscommon, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects nightly site fee, there's an $8 online reservation fee in addition. Once you get to the park there's a daily entrance fee of $9, or you can get the annual pass. For only $33 it's a good deal. We were scheduled for four nights here, and when we arrived we found our site was not going to work for us. There were trees very close to the road where the truck would need to go in order for us to back in. We were able to find a site for a couple nights, and the site next to that for the third night (both on a corner with extra maneuvering room), but for the 4th night there was nothing available so we went elsewhere. The park itself is nice, and there are good bike trails around. Just be aware that sites in the west campground are pretty snug, the east isn't much better, and when the campground is full there are vehicles everywhere - right up at the edge of the road. Not much available for larger rigs, but there are a few spots. Plan ahead! We've heard the lake is beautiful, but swimmer's itch is present. We spent so much time moving that we didn't have time to get out our paddle boards, so we didn't see much of the lake. Verizon and AT&T worked ok, 3 bars. No OTA TV. Site #13 was listed as 51' long and 50' wide, but with narrow roads and trees right up to the edge there's no way it would have worked. If you're big, try to find a spot across from another road or intersection so you've got extra space. Otherwise, find another campground. Michigan has lots of state parks to choose from, this one was the worst of the ones we chose for us just because of our size and the inaccuracy of the website descriptions. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
