Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park & Cabins, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

We checked in to the very friendly and efficient office staff during a power outage caused by a tree fall on National Forest Land (the power came on in a few hours and stayed on consistently the rest of our stay). We were able to complete our sign-in the next day. We were given a map and easy directions to our level back-in FHU site, with towed vehicle parking right beside us. There are level asphalt roads throughout the park. Our site was very beautiful, and the whole park is lushly landscaped, with thick green grass (watered nightly). The whole park is very nice, clean, and safe. Our side of the park had nothing but tiny trees, but the more mature part of the park has lots of large trees. I think this is the closest park to the western gate to the Yellowstone National Park, and it's an easy and pleasant walk to town, just a few blocks. You'll have to walk a bit to dump your trash in the bearproof containers, but these were always promptly emptied and never overflowing. WiFi access for up to seven devices free. Wifi did slow greatly in the evening. Verizon service was good. No propane refills available here in the park. Lots of areas to walk your dog, including next door national forest/snowmobile trails. Poop bags supplied. The one thing I did not enjoy was the sprinkler hitting my rear of my motorhome nightly in the middle of the night. This is a beautiful park and was worth the extra expense in my opinion for the vacation of a lifetime. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Very close (I believe the closest RV park) to the West entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Just a few blocks to walk to the town, grocery, and various attractions and stores. There is no propane available at the campground and we couldn't find a place in town that seemed at all accessible for our motorhome with towed vehicle to refill the propane, so come full to run your refrigerator on the road.

Central Wyoming Fairgrounds, Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in a full hookup back-in site in the trees. Power and water were consistent and adequate. You'll need a splitter to share water with the neighbor. Sites were very narrow, and they were not long - ours was just long enough for our 30' motorhome, no room for our towed vehicle. If the adjacent RV site had been occupied, we would not have been able to put out our canopy - each site was 16' exactly wide. There was also an awkward orientation to the treed sites - the odd numbered sites would have required the sewer and hookups to be on the driver's side, or run the lines under the RV, or you'd have to nose into the site. We occupied an even numbered site, so we could back in (keeping super close to water and electric towers) and use our normal hookups. The hard dirt sites were fairly uneven, and required several blocks and strategic maneuvering to get level. There was a lot of leftover horse poo in some sites from the preceding annual fair, and therefore there were a lot of flies. The large trees take up a large part of some of the sites, but offer some desirable shade for at least the morning and midday. Most of the RV sites have no trees or shelter, including all the pull-through sites. It's dry, dusty, and hot here. We stayed here for 3 nights for the Casper Kennel Club Dog Shows, so dogs were allowed - the fairgrounds website states normally dogs not allowed. This is not a pretty site, but location is everything for dog shows, and we were close to the event building. Our camping was coordinated through the very helpful kennel club. We camped at Central Wyoming Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Wind River RV Park, Riverton, Wyoming

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

We were very happy to get a pull through full-hookup site on short notice when we left Dubois (about 1.25 hours west) due to a fire pre-evacuation notice. Call for full directions when getting close, it's a little off the main drag. The accommodating owner/manager stayed late for our arrival and gave us a full orientation. There were many welcome shade trees (it was hot!) and very close to our site, but not a problem for our motorhome with no slide-outs. We would not have been able to put out our canopy, though. The gravel/dirt site was level and required no blocks. The electric power was strong and consistent and the modern electric tower was nicely high enough to allow the surge guard use. The water was of good pressure, clean, and decent tasting. Sewer hookups were easily accessible. WiFi signal seemed strong, but the amount of traffic seemed to overwhelm the system in the evening. Verizon cell service was good. There were two nice grassy areas for dogs, which were clean due to the many reminder signs to pick up after your dog. The park has made an effort also in this desert area to brighten the landscape with pretty watered flowers at each pull-through site and other areas near the entrance. The bathrooms were very clean, spacious, well-lit. Showers also very clean, $1 for 10 minutes with water-flow reducing shower heads. The laundry was wonderful, 13 regular washing machines, 2 oversize commercial washing machines, 8 big dryers, lots of folding space, modern vending drink machine, all in a spacious, swamp-cooled room. Lots of other nice RVs here, and the park seemed safe and quiet. A mosquito spraying truck rolled through in the evening. The RV sites are next to the same-owner storage facility. Not a fancy park, but totally more than adequate as a stopover. The owners have obviously made a lot of effort, focusing on important functional and hygienic improvements. Remember this is a desert area when wishing for lush landscaping. We camped at Wind River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rock Springs / Green River KOA, Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here for an overnight between Colorado and Yellowstone N.P. It was an easy and well marked route off I-80. We were guided to our pull through, 30 amp W/E site, which was very level. Office staff very friendly, efficient, gave us two fresh baked cookies on check-in, and offered helpful information about a fire that would be closing our planned route the next day. We needed their recommended alternative route, since the WiFi seemed so busy there was no way we would have been able to access the internet to scope out our route change online (reason we keep our old printed atlases in the RV....). Verizon service was OK. Our pull through site was just barely, barely, barely long enough for our motorhome and toad. Adjoining sites would have had rig doors facing each other, but since the park wasn't full, those sites immediately beside were not used. The park intelligently spread us campers out enough that we didn't have to share our front yard. I'm not sure we would have enjoyed sitting outside anyway. It was very hot, very dusty, and the non-resident campground lies between the resident area (well separated and tidy enough looking) backed up against desiccated hills, and I-80 plus giant oil holding tanks, so not scenic at all. There was a lot of gravel, and my dogs managed to find stickers in the sparse grass that had them holding up paws. The fenced and more grassy dog park was deemed off leash and held captive by another family's aggressive and barking dogs, so we never could try to use it with our friendly and gentle dogs. This was a convenient although not scenic overnight stay with friendly staff. We camped at Rock Springs / Green River KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is off I-80 Exit 99, 5 miles west of the Flying J at Exit 104 for fairly easy access. I wouldn't expect to see any wild horses in the dry looking hills close by this rather industrial-seeming area.

Albany County Fairgrounds, Laramie, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

I stayed here for the Laramie Kennel Club Dog Shows. Kind kennel club and fairgrounds staff escorted me to my site and aided in back in. I had a level concrete pad for back in with water and electric hook-up. There were only a limited amount of concrete pad space for 6-8 RVs, depending on how closely you park. It was first come first serve, without the option to reserve specific sites, so I had to arrive as early as possible to obtain the concrete pad. The rest of the back in spaces are gravel with water and electric. I was told some sewer was available, but it was not available on my concrete pad and I did not witness it. There also were multiple parallel dry camping spots on paved parking lots, in addition to the (I believe) 26 W/E spots. Location is the name of the game for the dog show, so I was not seeking the other amenities I would expect and want in a normal RV camping site. The RV spots were within fairly easy walking distance to the buildings where the dog show was held. There was a decent amount of grassy mowed spaces for exercising your dog on leash. Bring everything you need to be self-sufficient, unless you want to drive out for it - there is no store on site. Your site will not have a picnic table or fire ring. I would not have had room for my toad if I had brought it, and the concrete pad was just long enough for my 30' Class C. You will hear trains frequently day and night, but they are not overwhelming There was not a lot of trash pick up during the busy weekend. Verizon access on my cell phone was adequate. It is eternally windy here, so plan accordingly - you'll want to keep an eye out for your awning and not leave it out unattended for a long period of time. We camped at Albany County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Arrowhead Point Campground and Cabins , Buena Vista, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

As always, a wonderful place to stay. We disconnect our toad in front of the office, and were led easily to our back in, gravel, level FHU site. Nice rocks and some plantings provide some separation between sites. Cathy and Joe, the owners and managers, are friendly, efficient, and ever pleasant. You will always observe them and the clean cut workkampers busily taking care of the campground. Nice views of the mountains, lots of hummingbirds, easy access to Highway 24 about 5 miles north of Buena Vista. It's an easy bike ride to town. There's also a beautiful and easily accessed ride/drive/walk just behind (west of) the campground by the Heckendorf Elk Reserve. Grounds are kept immaculately, and the landscaping has been improved again this year with more plantings. WiFi, which has been upgraded also since last year (no Tengo!), was strong but could slow during the weekend high use. I had trouble with Verizon cell phone service. Water and electric were strong and steady. Unthreaded sewer hookup. Cable TV was included in our site price. Not much over the air TV to be found now that Chaffee County TV translator went off the air in 2014 after not being able to make the Federally mandated digital transition without Federal funds. Lots of jeep fans here. We had a weekly rate then plus Good Sam. We will stay again. We camped here in a motorhome for 9 nights. We camped at Arrowhead Point Campground and Cabins in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. Back in W/E site. Bring blocks, but not too hard to level. Had to carefully situate RV so canopy did not extend over fire ring. Much vegetation around affords privacy. Never got to see the moose in the campground but plenty seen around Grand Lake. WiFi decent. Store was closed by the time we went to purchase firewood, but friendly neighbor campers gave us some.

We returned to a beautiful FHU back-in riverside site with private deck overhanging the pleasant river, and private campfire and “front yard”. Pleasant and very helpful office staff. Gracious owner authorized this repeat customer a discount due to a past inconvenience. A quiet and well run park. Bathrooms clean and cute little office store. Utilities all good. Verizon service very poor here due to the hills, but we don’t come here to be on the phone all day. Good recycling options provided. Tengo WiFi $1/day and not the speediest at times, but we were given a complimentary 24 hours by office. Bathrooms clean and cute little office store. An easy trip up the canyon to visit Estes Park. We didn’t bring our dogs this time but they are very pet friendly. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome. We camped at Riverview RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

West Omaha / NE Lincoln KOA, Gretna, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We were led to our 30 amp W/E pull-through site. On this return visit, the site was really low in front and extremely minimal in length for our toad. We would have needed about 8 blocks in front to level (4 didn’t do it). I was dismayed that our very small picnic area was combined with the next door’s too close site, and the neighbor had a dog-aggressive husky. We were very crowded with 2 picnic tables and 2 fire rings in one space, and I was afraid to bring my dogs out. Clean bathrooms. Free Tengo WiFi. Trash pick up at site. We would return.

We were led and assisted into our level, back-in, FHU site. Very friendly and efficient office staff. They even helped us print out a boarding pass in the office during our stay. They are very open about the fees on the site, so you pay for what you use. Discount for 3 or more day stay. $2/day WiFi access per device or you can pay a weekly rate. Nice pool, bathrooms, and store. Beautiful trees and grounds. This is an extremely well run and cared-for campground. They do their own excellent mosquito control. We enjoyed the access to the lake across the road. The water was off one afternoon for a few hours and that delayed our predeparture tank flushing to the next morning. We would return.

We were led to our FHU pull-through site. It’s a beautiful little CG with a nice view and super clean air at the top of Raton Pass. Many lovely hummingbirds. The water is superb. We needed a couple blocks to level in front. You need a code for each device needing WiFi, available at the office, but it’s free and had good speed. Verizon signal was a bit weak. Be careful to put your grill in at night and put your trash in the bear-safe container. We would return. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.
