Challis Hot Springs, Inc., Challis, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Interior road are gravel, sites are gravel or hard packed dirt. They do a great job of keeping everything watered and green. The hot springs are in great shape, absolutely crystal clear water and the warmer of the 2 is big enough to swim laps if wanted. Hot pool is smaller and too hot for me. There is no additional charge for campers, but its $10 for others. The Salmon river is just a few feet away, but the view is blocked by vegetation. There is a ramp for kayaks. Mountain goats visable just outside the park. We camped at Challis Hot Springs, Inc. in a Fifth Wheel.

Sportsman Lodging and RV Park, Melrose, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

All of the others in the park were there for the fishing, it was just a convenient place for us to stay overnight. Wide open with plenty of room, all grass, all hookups are well located and function properly. It is close enough to I-15 for a quick overnight, but far enough that there is no road noise. Big hole river for fishing. Washer and dryer available for $1 on the honor system. We camped at Sportsman Lodging and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Valley Creek Motel and RV Park, Stanley, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

As others have described, this is for self contained travelers only, no public restrooms or showers. The limited spaces filled up each of the 3 nights we were here. If given the opportunity to choose your site, I would pick #1. They are all the same size, this is closest to the motel and has a great view out the back. The other sites have pine trees at the back to block the view of a construction storage area. The patio area behind the motel has a nice sitting area with a terrific view of a nature preserve, awesome in the evening. We camped at Valley Creek Motel and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Extremely beautiful mountain drives to Stanley no matter how you get there. The Redfish Outlet NFS campground (about 5 miles) has a nice sandy beach with great views across the lake of mountains with small glaciers.

Bear Den RV Resort , Grangeville, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Spent just one night here, it was a convenient place to stop. Consider making a reservation because it filled up by evening, and not to many other decent places in the area. If you do make a reservation, use the telephone, it avoids the "booking fee", and you can take advantage of any discounts that they offer. Check out the posted photos, they are very representative of the park. We camped at Bear Den RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, Buckboard Crossing Campground, Green River, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This is Wyoming high desert. No view of water from campground, but wide open in all directions. We were in A-26, electric only. Level side to side, but not quite front to back, not bad. The bathrooms in the A loop are older and no showers, in the B loop they are newer, have hot water and showers. Most of the electric sites were occupied on week days, and many of the rest of the no hookup sites filled on weekend. This portion of the "Flaming Gorge" is just a big lake, popular for fishing and other water activities. Further south is the high country and area of the more picturesque gorge. The dump site has added a terminal to pay with credit card. We camped at Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, Buckboard Crossing Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Steamboat Lake State Park, Clark, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We were here the first week of June. This is a park that has absolutely beautiful vista views of the mountains and lake. The drive up from town was gorgeous. After that, the park was just average for me. The marina and store were open, but not ready for summer. The shelves were almost empty and some of the rental water craft still shrink wrapped. The "camper services" building near the marina has the only flush toilets, laundry etc. Not close to camping areas. We were in the Yarrow loop site and the back 10' of site was covered with mud and water, the rest of pad was dry gravel and fairly level. The roads within the campground are narrow, but good paved asphalt. If you wish to fill with fresh water, it means a stop on this narrow road while you do it. Be advised that when we were there, the water pressure and flow rate were VERY low. It took 25 seconds to fill a single 1 gallon container. That converts for about 25 minutes for a 50 gallon fresh water tank (while blocking the road). We camped at Steamboat Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dolores River Campground, Dolores, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Third week of May, and unusually cold, with light snow one night. We stayed in a Premium back in sight overlooking a pond. Level gravel with nice grass. Lovely view out of the back window. Cable TV, WIFI, and all utilities worked well. One detraction was that the water coming from the hook-up had a slightly brown color to it, filter should take care of it. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

In peak summer season you may need two trips to Mesa Verde if you want to take one of the ranger guided tours. On the first trip to the park all of the tours were sold out for that day by 10:30, bought for the next day.

Cape Disappointment State Park, Ilwaco, Washington

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

Proximity to the beach is the star attraction. Unfortunately for us it was so windy it was not great. My wife would take the 5 minute walk over, but wouldn't stay because of the wind. I understand that weather is variable and have not downgraded the park because of this, just reporting our experience. The site we had was very nice, long asphalt pad with conveniently located hook ups that worked fine. There were some raised portions due to roots, but overall level. I mentioned the wind earlier, but the trees in the camping area we were in cut that to a gently breeze, so no mosquitos. We camped at Cape Disappointment State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The hiking trails are nice but do not originate in the camping area. Trailheads are only 1/2 to a mile away but you must walk along the road that has no shoulder to get to them.

Joseph H. Stewart State Recreation Area, Prospect, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Oregon State park now. The setting is very serene with scattered mature trees and a lot of open grassy space. Week days it was about 1/3 full, on the weekend mostly full, but not completely. There were large fires some distance away that caused a lot of smoke 3 of 4 days we were there. In fact there was a fire fighters base camp adjacent to but not in the park. When we were there the lake had been drawn down to a very low level. The banks were so steep that actually reaching the water was not possible except at the marina and beach area, a short drive away. We camped at Joseph H. Stewart State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive up to Crater lake is very scenic, There are view points of the Rouge river at several points. Take the marked side road (about a 1/4 mile) to the Disappearing river point. The river, not running too rapidly in August goes underground into a lava tunnel and then re-emerges about 50 feet away.

Nehalem Bay State Park, Nehalem, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Oregon beach park in August, so if the crowds and kids bother you, you may not enjoy. It was completely full every night. We personally enjoy seeing the kids enjoying the family camping experience, reminds us of fun times earlier in life. There is a good variety of camp spots, some with no shade some with a lot. in general, the spots on the outside of the loops are longer and shadier than those on the inside of loops. We were in a mostly shady spot on the outside of loop A. Had to be very careful backing in because of low branches extending over the pad. The trees are all "sea pines" that don't get very high, but tend to spread their branches. Pads are 90 degrees to the relatively narrow roadway. Beautiful long wide beach. The walk over the dunes is on soft sand. Must add a note on the dumpsters. They are the type that incorporates a compactor to reduce volume. I understand the reasoning, but it leads to quite a strong smell that is quite evident in nearby camp spots. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Tilamonk cheese factory can be a fun experience. We have been in years past and enjoyed it. It has greatly increased in visitations and now has extremely long lines. Would not return in peak summer periods.

Glendo Lakeside RV Park, Glendo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Previous reviews are accurate. However the description as a large parking lot may mislead. The gravel appears to be washed river gravel so there is no dust. That is an advantage in this windy country. Even though we only stayed only one night, we enjoyed this park. Great views of wide open Wyoming. All utilities worked well. We camped at Glendo Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dam West Recreation Area COE, Carlyle, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice COE park with lots of shady spots that are VERY long. We stayed across from the main campground for only one night. It is listed in Recreation .gov as a back in, but is in fact a pull-thru. This may be an older section that is very small, about 10 sites. The pad was asphalt, had some ridges from underlying roots, but was level. We camped at Dam West Recreation Area COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Henrys Lake State Park, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Great state park. The area is a huge ice age cirque with mountains all around, beautiful lake in the center. Fantastic views in every direction. We were in the Blue Dun section which is the older, but prettier section. One caution, the bathrooms in this section were completely closed for renovation. Porta pottys located around campground. Staff said they were supposed to be complete a month ago. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) , Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

The only reason to go here is that it is in the middle of the Teton National Park, and that makes it one of my favorites. Yes the sites are not level, it is always completely full, the bathrooms are old and not cleaned regularly, no cell coverage, no satellite reception, and I think overpriced. We were lucky to get a site near the bottom of the hill with a good view of Jackson lake with the Teton mountains looming just on the other side. The have a very thorough briefing when you check in about bear precautions, and then the dumpster nearest me did not close completely.
