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.

Tips for other Campers:

Camp Verde itself has an archaeology center, historical society, and Fort Verde to explore. Nearby are Montezuma's Castle, Tutzigoot, Palatki, and Honanki. Oldtown Cottonwood is also quite charming. All of this and no need to enter the zoo that is Sedona.

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
Overall Rating:

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. Site surface was asphalt and featured a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Kalaloch Campground (NPS Campground), Olympic National Park, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

We checked in on a Thursday. Happily, the best site in the CG is on a loop dedicated to drop-in/no reservation campers, F-6, and we snagged it. It is secluded from the neighbors and has a view of the beach below. Other good ocean-view sites are on the beach side of the D loop (not secluded, though). The surf is so loud that beach-side sites can't hear the traffic on Hwy 101. Potable water to fill up your tank is available at the dump site (the dump site itself has a fee/use of $5 with the Senior Pass & $10 for others, payable at the registration board). If you need to add water after setting up, there are spigots outside the bathrooms, (we used a gallon jug & a couple-three trips). Several trails lead down to the beach, which was fabulous, even in the rain. The hosts keep the grounds spotless and were ready to answer all questions. A ranger station is just 1/2 mile south filled with info on what to do and see. AT&T did not work in the CG, but there was a reasonable signal at the ranger station. We camped at Kalaloch Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Camping, Fort Langley, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed two nights mid-week and practically had our loop to ourselves. The spacing between sites is good with lovely flowering bushes and trees everywhere. The RV park is part of Brae Island Regional Park, (a bridge connects to Fort Langley), and is one short walk to the Fraser River, and a modest walk to the adorable village of Fort Langley with restaurants, 3 museums, and the best hat shop (for men & women) in greater Vancouver. We were too early in the season to take advantage of the swimming pool, the weekend programs, or the store. But the trails along the river and exploring the village kept us busy enough. Given how close this park is to the attractions of the greater Vancouver urban region, the price felt reasonable. Because one pays 1/2 the fee at the time of reserving and the balance on arrival, it was explained that the site you choose when making your reservation is considered a "suggestion/request" not a firm deal. This was not a problem for us. Note: Light sleepers should insert ear plugs, as quite a few trains rumble along the river's edge, and they blare their horns. We camped at Fort Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Bruneau Dunes State Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

I could grouse about the price (which includes a fee for reserving online). Apart from that, though, this park is excellent. We stayed at the Broken Horseshoe CG. Getting backed into our site was a bit tight (a longer rig might have trouble; ours is a 17' trailer) but everything else was really nice. Between the sites are mature trees, and brand-new trees have recently been planted. We camped at Bruneau Dunes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

John Martin Reservoir State Park, Hasty, Colorado

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $31.00

There is no water at the sites. Instead one must find one of the spigots placed around the park; not what I expected given the price. The Lake-side sites are nice and the lake is very peaceful (in March). We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beaver Dunes Park, Beaver, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We picked this park because -- Dunes. Were there any signs showing how to get from the RV spaces to the Dunes? Did we find a way without getting wet crossing the creek? No. There was no explanation to educate re: this geological feature anywhere we could find. After I managed to reach the ranger on his cell phone to discover if reservations were available (no, 1st come/1st served); I saw a sign indicating reservations could be accomplished on this park's facebook page. I don't do facebook so how could I do that? Also, there are only six rv spaces. Perhaps elsewhere along the dunes there's another campground but we didn't see any sign. The water coming out of the hose is yellow-brown. So we used a hose filter plus a pitcher filter inside the trailer. We camped at Beaver Dunes Park in a Travel Trailer.
