Priest Gulch Campground & RV Park, Dolores, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Priest Gulch is a beautiful, peaceful campground set among tall spruce and aspen trees along the Dolores River. Sites are spacious with green grass, a fire ring and free wood available for campfires! The restrooms and laundry room are cleaned daily, even the windows. It is one of the nicest campgrounds we've been to. We made reservations for next year. The only minuses are that the wifi was terrible and the office did not have any information on local hiking (like maps with distances, difficulty level, etc.) even though several trails are accessible from the campground. We were roaming with Sprint service. We camped at Priest Gulch Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mesa Verde NP, The Canyon of the Ancients NM, Four Corners Monument and Telluride are all between a 1 and 2 hour drive. Mesa Verde now requires tour tickets to visit their main cliff dwellings so check their website to find purchase locations. Purchase early to get the time/day you want. Cortez has the nearest Walmart.

Silver Summit RV Park and Campground, Silverton, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are very close together. Our slide-out almost touched the awning of the RV behind us. No mats are allowed on grass which made for a mess in the RV. Another RV Park is beside this one is all gravel and sites were more spacious. Scenery was gorgeous from this park and was only a few blocks from downtown Silverton. Lots of noise from UTVs as the public staging area adjoins the campground. Very convenient if you are there to 4-wheel. This park rents Jeeps but be advised that 5 out of 7 had expired tags. When we questioned the office, we were told that the county had made a mistake and that we would not be ticketed for it, which we did not believe. The Jeeps appeared to be in disrepair. One was up on jack stands being repaired by employees. Needless to say, we rented elsewhere. We camped at Silver Summit RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rock Pirates rents late model Polaris 4-wheelers. Vehicles are in good condition and come with a GPS and emergency locator directly tied to Rock Pirates. They're more expensive than renting a jeep but the peace of mind was worth it.

Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA , Montrose, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

I gave this RV park a low rating based on our personal experience which was as follows: We were given a site at the far end of the park bordering a trailer park among other permanent trailers in this KOA. Our site had a view of a wrecked car body and old, run-down trailers next to us and around us. We spent 6 nights here, to the tune of well over $300 and should have had a nicer site because there certainly were much nicer sites available. The nice sites are closer to the office. When I complained to the office, the employee behind the counter stated that we were, in fact, in a "crappy site" and would have the owner call me. That never happened. Unfortunately, The3HappyCampers are not very happy. :-( If you choose to stay at this KOA, my advice to you is: Do not make your reservation online as the "computer" assigns sites. Rather, call and specifically ask for a site close to the office. This may increase your chances of not being stuck among a salvage yard. Those site numbers which we would have been happy with are #s 1-49. Stay away from sites 51-71. Having said all that, this park is laid out nicely, is easy to navigate in any RV, has all gravel roads and long, level, gravel pull-thru sites. Each site has a nice, concrete curb defining the site. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you're a John Wayne/True Grit fan, go to the Ouray Visitor's center. They have a brochure called "True Grit Then and Now" with detailed information, including GPS coordinates, about local sites where the movie was filmed or go to www.coloradovibes.com for more information. The Ironton Mine ghost town is also interesting to explore.

Coyote Keeth's RV Park, Clayton, New Mexico

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

Perfect for an overnight stay with very easy off/on Hwy. 87 in Clayton. Gravel roads and sites with well-maintained grass area in between. There are 15 sites here, all pull-thru and very level. Picnic table at each site. Do call ahead and reserve as these quickly filled up by late afternoon. Reserved sites are marked with an orange cone and we were told to choose any one upon arrival. Maybe a little overpriced for what you get but very convenient. We camped at Coyote Keeth's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Marais RV Park & Campground, Grand Marais, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was very short and narrow on a steep incline. We had a very nice view of Lake Superior. Most campers were seasonal and not particularly welcoming to short-term vacationers like us. This is a city-owned campground. We camped at Grand Marais RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Grand Marais is a very quaint town with lots of shops and restaurants as mentioned by others in previous reviews. Temps were only in the 60's when we were there, so have a jacket handy. Temps are 10 degrees warmer when you get away from the lake (such as traveling the Gunflint Trail). Hate to be negative, but we felt the locals there were not very friendly or welcoming.
