Castle View RV Park, Almo, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here, in a totally empty park, as a base for exploring City of Rocks National Preserve. One pays at the self-pay station at the entrance. There are rock fire rings & bbq units but no other amenities except for: total quiet at night, very dark skies, views of the valley and hills in all directions. Did I mention how quiet it was? It is located on a dirt road used by the local farmers, about 1/4 mile from the 90 degree turn of the paved road (that heads on into the Preserve from Almo). The sites are spaced apart from each other on a loop so if we'd had neighbors it still would have felt spacious. We camped at Castle View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Caspar Campground, Casper, Wyoming

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

We generally don't use RV parks of this type, and so were shocked by how crowded it is, (see picture) and how noisy with engines/generators plus stinky diesel fumes. We only used electric. IDing your power post is confusing so be careful. It does make a good home base for visiting Casper itself, plus the historic fort, historic trails center, geology/dinosaur museum, and the college. And the folks in the office could not have been nicer. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Larson Park Trail Ruts Golf Course and Campground, Guernsey, Wyoming

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

This CG could not be located in a better spot for Oregon Trail enthusiasts. The pictures show that it is basically a gravel parking lot. Nevertheless, being next to a golf course on one side, and the Platte River on the other made for a very rural feeling, and it is small enough that we did not feel crowded. The management were very friendly and helpful, and Guernsey itself is a charming small town. One must plan to dump elsewhere. We camped at Larson Park Trail Ruts Golf Course and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

North Bingham County Recreation Area, Shelley, Idaho

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

This park is large and the 12 RV sites are one small part of it. Though we never saw anyone at the check-in building, our reservations by phone (no extra charge for reservations) and then checking-in was very easy and smooth. The park was quiet, and the green grass and shady trees made for an oasis during a hot July. The space between sites was narrow (see the picture; we're used to boondocking) but felt spacious. We will definitely return here again. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Stoddard Creek Campground, Dubois, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

We had been in hot weather and much appreciated the coolth from the altitude and the trees. We reserved thru recreation.gov and the fee for that exceeded our per night fee :-( but it was still cheap at a total of $13 for our one night. The CG had not yet filled up (a Thursday in early July) by bedtime. The spaces were wide apart, level, and private. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful. Nearby Spencer ID has eateries and opal shops. If going from the CG to Spencer, use the access road instead of the freeway until the hwy work is done as there is no southbound exit right now to the town. We camped at Stoddard Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pinyon Flats (NPS Campground), Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: April, 2019 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Loop 1 is being remodeled, Loop 2 where we stayed is not big rig friendly; every site is slightly different so cruise the entire loop to see what fits you best. Be careful when backing in as most sites are angled slightly wrong for the one way road. Nevertheless this is a gorgeous CG, with views of the Dunes, lots of trees/bushes giving privacy between sites, bear-proof boxes for food, some sites have a water spigot and a general use water spigot is at the bathroom. No electricity; no showers in bathroom; there is a dump (though we were too early in season as it was closed). We camped at Pinyon Flats (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Cranes Mill Park COE, Canyon Lake, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

The RV camping area is smallish, so reservations are a must. The layout is spacious with the bathroom/showers in the middle. Each site has a slightly different length to the driveway and some are tilted (some quite a bit) and some are flat so bring plenty of leveling blocks. Every site has a separate parking pad for tow vehicles/towed cars. We were in site 11, which backs onto a woody/bushy area and a path to an open spot useful for dog walkies (bring your own poo bags). There is a dump site just inside the CG entrance. The sewer pipe is sorta high, but the driveway slopes so careful positioning helps with gravity dumping. Bring your own rinsing hose. This CG made an excellent spot from which to explore San Antonio and environs. We camped at Cranes Mill Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Yucaipa Regional Park, Yucaipa, California

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

We needed to arrive a day early due to our plan change and the county park service was very helpful getting us a space with full hookups. The views out our windows are lovely and peaceful, the space between sites is ample and we felt quite private -- the park is uncrowded this time of year but even full it would feel private. Use 34.0486878, -117.0471204 coordinates rather than the street address -- we used a Garmin Navigator and the address told us to turn off Oak Glen Rd too early. We camped at Yucaipa Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tehachapi Mountain County Park, Tehachapi, California

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived mid-day March 20. The website said the CG was open year round though if there was snow the roads might be closed. There was no snow. Even so, the gates to the loops were padlocked shut. Twice a pick-up truck drove past us coming and going to what was signed as the headquarters, w/o stopping. We were lucky to find a place to turn around, as the loop road -- taking us beyond the registration place -- allowed us in before we discovered the sites were locked shut. We were very disappointed. We camped at Tehachapi Mountain County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clear Creek Campground, Camp Verde, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived the Monday of Thanksgiving week and were very happy to see a nearly empty campground. Even in late November it was shady amongst the large Arizona Sycamore trees. The restrooms are composting toilet affairs and they were clean and odor free. The sites are well spaced out. There is a lovely quiet trail along the irrigation ditch and then the creek itself to help settle dinner. We camped at Clear Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Battle Ground Lake State Park, Battle Ground, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for 3 nights, at a site with both electricity and water, and already have a state parks pass hence the price. The layout of the campsites is quite nice as it's possible to orient your trailer or tent or rig so that you don't see a neighbor from your primary window or door. The road winding around to the sites is very narrow and tight. Our 17' trailer + tow car had no trouble but big rigs will. We chose a back-in site. The road is paved and the sites are gravel. The lake is small and cozy and lovely. There are canoes & paddle boards for rent in the warmer months. The park is very quiet with tons of trees overhead and interesting walking trails throughout the park. The single dump site has both potable and non-potable water and was very clean -- potholes going in and out, though, so beware. We camped at Battle Ground Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Stevens State Park, Hammond, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We did not reserve in advance for our early September Sunday afternoon (1-ish) arrival but had no trouble getting a full hook-up site. As you can see by the photo, it was well vegetated. The park is great, with its old fort, river beach and ocean beach access, even an old wreck. There are plenty of well-laid out hiking/walking trails. Astoria is a great town to explore, and the high bridge across the Columbia River gives access to interesting day-trips on the Washington side. This campground is a great headquarters for Lewis & Clark buffs, with lots of L&C locations just a day-trip away. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fremont Indian State Park / Sam Stowe Campground, Sevier, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We spent two nights here (and arrived in the early afternoon) in order to see as much as two slightly feeble oldsters can. The layout of the Sam Stowe Campground is great, with a small central oval planted with trees and native vegetation. A local gardening club has also planted native bushes between each site so although sites are sort of close to each other, it felt very private. Plus each site has only a canyon wall behind it so when looking out the back window of our trailer we only saw lovely nature.

Fremont Indian State Park has two campgrounds, this one and a tent/primitive one, but one checks in at the Visitor Center/Museum for both. The entire park is alongside I-70, but even so was very quiet, mostly. I used RV Trip Wizard to find this campground and was a bit confused since their database did not make it clear that this is a single state park with two campgrounds, each with their own level of amenities & separate campground names, but both are within "Fremont Indian State Park" and reservations at Sam Stowe are made using ReserveAmerica.

After resolving our initial confusion, we loved the Sam Stowe campground. One can walk to the museum or drive there from the campground. The park has numerous well-marked hikes to see some of the hundreds of petroglyphs on the canyon walls, each carefully labelled as to length and difficulty. The museum has plastic sheets with info for each hike and item to be seen along the hike. Pick them up before setting out, and return them afterwards. The museum itself provides a good overview and background for what is to be seen outside on the hikes. We camped at Fremont Indian State Park / Sam Stowe Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Antelope Island State Park - Bridger Bay Campground, Syracuse, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed at Bridger Bay Campground, one of several on the island. Be careful when selecting a site, as the road through the loop is one way and many of the sites will place the table opposite your door if you pull through in the required direction. We cheated & pulled through backwards to get the view and the table on our trailer's door side. (If you do this plan out not only how you'll pull in, but how you'll pull out if the empty site you used to get in is taken when you try to leave.)

The website for this campground says, "Bridger Bay Beach. Restrooms and showers are available" which is misleading. The restrooms in the campground are vaults, and the showers are a long walk/shortish drive away from the campground much further along the beach. Take quarters if you want a hot shower; otherwise another shower is outside the building and the same temp as the lake. You need one or the other though, to wash off the salt after swimming.

The website also neglects to alert RVers to the desirability to fill up fresh water tanks with good tasting water before coming across the causeway & onto the island, as the only potable water from a spigot is found at the dump site (and it is highly mineralized in flavor).

The water quibble & campsite layout aside, this campground is very dark at night, (great star-viewing), and quiet. The sites are widely spaced apart and due to the hillside, every site potentially looks out over the lake.

Fill your water tank (or jugs of water) before leaving the mainland. Have a plan to deal with the hot sun and total lack of shade. Bring appropriate foot coverings to walk through heavy sand to the water's edge. We camped at Antelope Island State Park - Bridger Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Three Island Crossing State Park, Glenns Ferry, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00

We were cheered by the sight of the many trees shading both loops of the park. Though others have opined that the space between sites is spacious, we felt a tad too close to the neighbors.
