Spanish Trail RV Park & Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

This park is located on Highway 191 several miles outside of Moab. It has some trees, a small pool and spa. We overnighted here on our way east to Durango. It gets crazy hot in Moab, so power to run our AC was important. It was clear that work has been put into upgrading campground facilities, and we had a pleasant stay. The sites are on a bit of a slope, so some leveling was needed. Given the prices of everything in the Moab area, this was a good value. We would be happy to visit again. We camped at Spanish Trail RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Durango KOA, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This KOA is partly treed, with campsites scattered around in a somewhat random fashion. We were guided to our site. It has a small pool that closes a bit early in the evening. It has quite a few fun programs and activities for kids. I was there for a weaving conference at Fort Lewis College, so the KOA was quite convenient. It allowed me to drive to the school without having to go through downtown Durango. We camped at Durango KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ride the Silverton Train - one way trip with bus the other way.We enjoyed Serious Texas Barbecue, especially eating outside with a view of the Animas River. We also had a great meal at the Irish Embassy Pub in downtown Durango.

Utah Lake State Park, Provo, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We overnighted here with no reservation on a weeknight in July. The campground has a mix of pull through and back-in sites with water and electric. The lake was closed to swimming due to bacterial overgrowth at that time. I believe it has something to do with too many carp in the lake, and it being very shallow. Utah Lake is a remnant of the ancient Lake Bonneville, and so is saline. The salt marsh next to the lake smells marshy, which is noticeable from the campground, but not too strong. We saw quail and killdeers around the perimeter of the campground. It was nice walking out on one of the breakwaters until a strong wind blew up. There was a lot of trash along the public roads, although not in the campground area itself. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

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

This is a beautifully maintained full service campground. There are trees, a pool and hot tub, and excellent individual shower rooms. We pulled in and had time to enjoy the pool before having to get out due to a lightning storm heading that way. We showered in the individual shower rooms, which had bath mats provided. The storm became intense later that night, with strong winds and a power outage. The next morning the campground staff were picking up leaves and small branches that had blown down. I didn't see any large limbs that had broken - just a lot of little stuff. We enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend stopping at Mountain Home RV Park if you are in the area.

Mazama Village (NPS Campground), Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled in after dark due to spending time exploring caves at Lava Beds National Monument. There is a large building complex for Registration, but it was unattended when we got in. Instructions directed us to call on a special phone, but there was no answer. After another 10 minutes looking around for anyone or a sign we might have missed, we saw lights and figures moving in the building. This time the phone was answered, and we were given a code to the little locker containing our campground site number and map. The sites are in a heavily treed area, and can require a bit of maneuvering to ensure room for the slides. There were quite a few mosquitoes, so bring bug spray. The park was clean and well maintained. I recommend the boat tour for anyone who can climb the Cleetwood Cove trail 700 feet down, then back up again. Visiting Crater Lake is a unique and beautiful experience. Aside from the check-in issue, we had no trouble. Our neighbors in the next campsite gave us part of a watermelon after they had eaten what they wanted. We ate some, and passed it on to the folks on the other side of us. This is why we like camping. We would stay there again. We camped at Mazama Village (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Manzanita Lake (NPS Campground), Lassen Volcanic National Park, California

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 2 nights at Manzanita Lake in Lassen Volcanic National Park. This pretty campground is in a forested area, with bear boxes, picnic tables and fire rings for each site. Our site was spacious and required minimal leveling. As with many National Park campgrounds, the pull through sites have a sharp bend, so will likely be challenging for larger rigs. The unlabeled fork in the road for A Loop is a short cut to the higher numbered sites - stay right for the full circuit, left for the higher site numbers. Our site (A48) was a bit close to the access road, so there were a number of people walking by, as well as some vehicle traffic. The dump station had an $8 fee ($4 for seniors), but was one of the nicer ones, with the screw threads not cut off the hoses so we could use our black water flush connection and refill fresh water. We enjoyed our stay, and would be happy to visit again. We camped at Manzanita Lake (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Burney Falls was lovely, but the lot fills early on summer weekends. Subway Cave is fun; bring a sweater and flashlight. Parking a trailer there could be an issue as there are no dedicated spots for RVs. The alternative trail to Bumpass Hell (during the renovation of the original trail) is challenging, with over 1000 foot elevation gain and a lot of hard packed snow covering parts of the trail, even in mid July.

Davis Creek Campground, Washoe Valley, Nevada

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

This park is located between Reno and Lake Tahoe in an open pine forest on the side of a hill. The park was clean, although both the showers and bathrooms were a bit grungy (not bad, but could have been better). The sites are pretty much all unlevel, but especially avoid site 23 with a longer trailer or RV. We were unable to level our 24' trailer in that site and moved to adjacent site 25 with permission of the rangers. The campground roads are narrow, and might be hard for big rigs to navigate. We did enjoy our stay, and would stay there again. We camped at Davis Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Jordanelle State Park, Heber City, Utah

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

Jordanelle Hailstone section is a series of camping loops on terraces above the lake. The sites are paved, with an adjacent fire pit, barbecue grill, and picnic table. Site spacing is pretty generous, with good space between rigs. Some leveling will be required, but we had no trouble. Water and electric are available. Access to the reservoir and boat ramp is quite nearby. The restrooms were clean and well stocked. The camp hosts were very nice, and greeted us several times during our stay. We had trouble with the water spigot spraying around the connection to our filter, our pressure reducer, and our fresh water hose. Even putting plumber's tape on the connector did not stop the spray. We used our fresh water, and refilled our tank with their spigot, rather than connecting to our city water input and spraying water everywhere. The other issue we had was the smell of the dump station reached us at our campsite on the Wasatch loop, despite choosing a site farther away from it. The smell was not strong, but it was unpleasant. It caused us to close our windows and roof vents and run the AC at night. We would stay at Jordanelle again, but not in Wasatch loop. We camped at Jordanelle State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Visit Utah Olympic Park, we saw ski jumpers practicing while we were there. Get online early to reserve, the good spots go very fast. Avoid Wasatch loop, at least in the summer, due to the breeze carrying the sewer scent of the nearby dump station.

Routt National Forest-Dumont Lake, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This lovely campground is spread out in a lightly forested meadow along Rabbit Ears pass, above Steamboat Springs. Many of the sites are a bit sloped, although we only needed a bit of side to side leveling on ours. The spaces have good separation from the neighbors. It gets quite cold at night, even in summer, so be prepared. We would be happy to stay there again. We camped at Routt National Forest-Dumont Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Louise Trailer Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Check in was a bit of a wait, but quick once we reached the front of the line with our advance reservation in hand. Perhaps some of the people in line ahead of us were trying to get campsites despite the "full" signs; several of them turned and left. The staff were polite. The trains were not loud enough to disturb our sleep, but they do go through many times day and night. The double site was mostly level, plenty long enough, and wide enough for us and our neighbor to extend our slide outs. The park was clean, and centrally located for exploring Lake Louise, Yoho, and Icefields Parkway. We would be happy to camp here again. Make reservations early, the sites furthest from the train tracks go quickly. We camped at Lake Louise Trailer Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Summit Campground, East Glacier Park, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We spent a night here in a long back-in site. The sites are double wide, and surfaced with gravel. Many were sloped a little, but we needed only minor leveling. This is a forested area along Highway 2, west of East Glacier. It is near the highway, and a bit further from a train track. Road noise was minimal, and the train was not loud from the campground. There were bear warning signs posted, but we saw no bears. This made a nice place to overnight near the east side of Glacier, when all the National Park campgrounds were full due to fire closures in the western half of Glacier National Park. About 10 miles from the town of East Glacier. We camped at Summit Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Connor Battlefield State Historic Site, Ranchester, Wyoming

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

This small state park tucked into an oxbow curve of the Tongue River makes an excellent overnight stop. It is well maintained, with several pull through sites. A small light near the payment drop box would have been helpful since we arrived after dark. The sites were gravel, and mostly level. Would be happy to stay here again.

Green River Campground, Jensen, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

A lovely desert campground located next to the Green River. Cottonwood trees provide partial shade for some sites, but most are sunny. Only one loop of the three can be reserved in advance, but we had a large choice of sites when pulling in around 2:30 on a weekday. We selected a pull-alongside site adjacent to the river. The evening winds can sometimes be strong, so stake down any tents. We camped at Green River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Difficult Campground, Aspen, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Difficult Campground is a Forest Service campground located a few miles outside of Aspen along Independence Pass. It is well below the 35' vehicle length restriction portion of the pass so long as you approach it from the Aspen side. Don't let your GPS try to route you over the pass when driving to Aspen! The campground is situated in a steep valley filled with aspen trees. Most sites are somewhat sloped and have partial shade. We had to use about 4 lynx levelers to level side to side, but some sites were better about that. The pit toilets were clean and well maintained. The campground host was considerate when he stopped by. Do use the provided bear boxes at each site to store coolers and food. We stayed 2 nights, and would be happy to stay there again.
