Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground, Banff National Park, Alberta

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

We have just completed a tour of BC and Alberta, staying in 7 campgrounds over 11 nights. Our longest stay was in Banff, in the Trailer Court campground in our 10 metre RV. It was our favourite campground of the 7, with a lovely situation amongst the mountains, far enough above the town to feel as if you were in the wild but close enough to visit it very easily, even in a big camper. The pitches were large and well spaced and the facilities excellent. The lack of wi-fi was the only real downside. We camped at Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground in a Motorhome.

Golden Eco-Adventure Ranch & Campground, Golden, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We had mixed feelings about this site, the good being far enough out of town to feel as if it was almost wilderness, surrounded by mountain peaks and in amongst the trees yet close enough to easily pop in for provisions. But the mosquitos were the worst we experienced in 10 days and 7 different campgrounds. Not their fault but a real downer. The facilities were ok with hot showers which were free but the lack of wi-fi was a pain. We camped at Golden Eco-Adventure Ranch & Campground in a Motorhome.

Lamplighter Campground, Revelstoke, British Columbia

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

We stayed for one night in our 10 metre RV in this neatly laid out 'parkland' site. The pitch was big and on grass with some shade. The proprietor was extremely helpful and we basically had an uneventful and pleasant stay. There is some train noise but not enough to disturb sleep where we were. The WiFi was very good which is of course a big plus these days! We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Motorhome.

Big Bear Shores RV Resort, Fawnskin, California

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $122.00
Overall Rating:

Expensive and exclusive site with entirely privately owned pitches, some of which are rented out by their owners. Very smart and well maintained with concrete pitches. Being privately owned the pitches were generally very well cared for, many with manicured gardens. Not proper camping really but very comfortable and a lovely pool. Felt like we had to be on our best behaviour! Stunning location next to the lake. Only irritation was lack of Wi-Fi. We camped at Big Bear Shores RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Kyle Canyon Campground, Toiyabe National Forest, Mount Charleston, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Basic site but wonderful to find somewhere cool so close to Vegas. Perfect for a night's stopover. Bit tight for our 33' RV but not impossible and the pitch was a good size and not close to another. We camped at Kyle Canyon Campground, Toiyabe National Forest in a Motorhome.

The Canyon Motel & RV Park, Williams, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

A very organized and well appointed campground about an hour's drive from the south rim. The pitches were a little bland but plenty of space. Excellent shower rooms and a good indoor swimming pool. Very friendly staff. However, a lot of freeway and train noise so earplugs needed. We camped at The Canyon Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails, Groveland, California

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

This was the second campground of 6 which I had booked in advance for our 2 week marathon and was the one I had most concerns about before we got there given some of the reviews. However, all told it was fine and a great base from which to explore Yosemite. It would have been nice to stay in the valley but I wasn't quick enough to get a site there. On the plus side, we had full hook-ups for the 3 nights we spent there which we wouldn't have had in the valley. The facilities were fine with clean and hot showers and sizeable pitches. It is true that the public part of the site is across the road from the main body and there are no pull-throughs but it was quiet and really not a problem. Main issues were that the Wi-Fi was only available down in a 'lodge' by the reception and the reception staff could have been a little friendlier although they were helpful when asked about things. The river was nice, but not for swimming. We camped at Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Tahoe Valley Campground, South Lake Tahoe, California

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

We were RV 'virgins', this being our first excursion in a 33' foot motorhome. So we approached our first campground with trepidation wondering if it would be as advertised and whether we could master these mysterious rituals called 'hook-ups'. To cut a lengthy story short, it was easy and we loved the site. Maybe there was an element of rose tinting in our spectacles, given that anything other than outright disaster was going to seem like a triumph, but having subsequently visited another 5 campgrounds over the next 2 weeks/2000 miles, we are confident in declaring it one of the better ones. Big pitches, lots of shade, full hook-ups with excellent Wi-Fi, a good pool and friendly staff. Yes the shower blocks could do with some updating but they were clean and the water was hot so it didn't bother us. One slight gripe was that it wasn't very busy when we were there and yet a new arrival (with baby and dog) was wedged in next to us. Couldn't understand that, but fortunately they were very pleasant and conscious of not making too much noise. We camped at Tahoe Valley Campground in a Motorhome.
