Seawall Campground (NPS Campground), Southwest Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

The RV loop of Seawall Campground is very similar to the pull-through section of Blackwoods (also in Acadia NP) and among the best national park campgrounds. The setting is the woods is not quite as nice, but it is a bit better for solar with less shade. The sites are generally long and wide but can be a bit tricky to level. Not obvious from the Recreation.gov site, the first row of sites (C-1 to C-12) are back-to back double sites--basically double wide sites with a white line down the middle separating them. These sites are not as private as the others, but they do offer more solar exposure. Seawall is on the western, quieter side of Mt. Desert Island, but very close to Southwest Harbor, which is a lovely town with many of the amenities of Bar Harbor without the crazy crowds and parking limitations. There is a free shuttle to Bar Harbor, which takes an hour each way. Surprisingly, the Verizon signal here was pretty good, even though it was poor in most of the surrounding area and non-existent at Blackwoods. The mosquitoes are a bit more of a problem here than at Blackwoods, likely because the area is more swampy with standing water, even in July. Overall, this campground is excellent for peace and quiet and as a base to explore Acadia and all the towns on the west side of the island. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The Bass Harbor lighthouse is nearby and worth a visit. When we were there they offered free firewood for campers every day, so check it out before buying firewood bundles on the road in.

Moose River Campground, St Johnsbury, Vermont

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

We normally are not big fans of commercial campgrounds, preferring national forests or state parks, but this one is a real gem. We had a riverside site and it felt like living in a cabin on a river. The owners keep the park immaculate and quiet and the feeling is like being in a small neighborhood. They have a big bonfire every Saturday night and occasionally have musical entertainment, a barbecue or ice cream. The area is lovely and great for riding bikes. The only real limitation is that the riverside sites have limited sewer capacity--holding tanks that must be pumped out twice a week. This limits things like washing clothes or taking many long showers, but we did not find it a problem at all. I do not often rate campgrounds a "10" but this one deserves it. We camped at Moose River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Dog mountain is about a mile away and a must for dog owners/lovers. St. Johnsbury is wonderful and has a great farmers market on Saturday mornings. All the secondary roads behind the park are wonderful for bike riding, as is the rail trail that begins in St. Johnsbury.

Blackwoods Campground (NPS Campground), Acadia National Park, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of the nicest national park campgrounds we've visited. We were in the RV section of Loop A with all pull throughs. The woods are gorgeous and there is a lot of space between sites. It was a bit tight turning into our site, but once there we never wanted to leave! It was a short walk on a well-defined trail to the ocean cliffs. There was some generator noise during the 5 hours it was allowed but otherwise very quiet and peaceful. It feels like the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor and the busy parts of Acadia are very far away. There is a shuttle bus to and from Bar Harbor every half hour or so, but it was only about a 15 minute drive by car. So much to do in the park and the quaint towns of the island. We camped at Blackwoods Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Unlike most national parks, dogs are allowed on most trails in Acadia. There is a wonderful lake where dogs can swim about a 10-minute drive from the campground--Little Long Pond. The hike from the campground to Gorham Mountain is fairly easy (4 miles RT and 800 feet of gain) and has magnificent views.

Cumberland Bay State Park, Plattsburgh, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

The listing for this campground is confusing because there are no hookups at most of the sites, with one loop of electric and water. We stayed in a dry site and really loved the park. The showers are free and convenient and there are many water spigots near the sites. There is no view of the lake from most of the sites due to a large hill, but the lake is close. We thought it was a great location for exploring the Plattsville area and we took day trips to the Adirondacks and Montreal. The roads were great and the sites easy to get into. We highly recommend this campground. We camped at Cumberland Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fish Creek Pond Campground, Saranac Lake, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

In most respects, Fish Creek Pond is an excellent campground and quite popular in the high season. The majority of sites are on the water with gorgeous views. We listened to the loons calling and the lapping of the water at night. Many sites are quite large, though not very level. The loop road winds around the lake and is about three miles long, so it can be a bit of a drive from the site to the highway. There is a tiny store nearby and an RV park with propane available. Restrooms are located about every dozen sites so it can be a long walk in the morning to the head. Overall this would have been one of our favorite campgrounds except for the bugs. We were there in early June and the campground was not very busy, we suspect because of the mosquitoes. They were numerous and aggressive. We were careful not to let them in our trailer but we still killed about 50 every night. They buzzed us all night and we were covered with bites. We finally gave up and left early. I'd advise waiting until the bugs are gone (mid-July?) to come to this campground. We camped at Fish Creek Pond Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clearwater Travel Resort, Clearwater, Florida

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

We are staying at the park for the winter and are very happy we decided to come here. The sites are generally pretty spacious with grass and a concrete patio. Some sites have concrete driveways, most do not and tow vehicles are parked on the grass. It is a very friendly community with a nice assortment of activities if that's your thing. It is in a great location with easy access to Tampa and St. Pete and all the services and shopping one could want. There are excellent bike paths nearby and the Phillies spring training fields are a 10 minute drive. It is generally quiet but there is a bit of traffic noise from nearby Gulf to Bay Blvd, especially on weekend nights. I highly recommend this park for a winter stay, but reservations must be made early (starting April 1 for the following winter) for a multi-month stay. We camped at Clearwater Travel Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Ole RV Resort, Goodlettsville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is a difficult review to write because one bad experience colors my recommendation for this park. This park is one of the best options to park an RV around Nashville because it is away from the busy Opry area (a plus for us, but maybe not for others), a 20-minute drive from downtown and reasonably-priced. The sites are decent sized and the office staff is helpful. There is some road and train noise but we didn't find it to be very noticeable. The reason I can't recommend this park is due to the danger of flooding. A violent rainstorm came up around ten PM last week. We were riding it out when we started seeing water sheeting across the ground. The water rose fairly quickly and we started seeing RVs pulling out of their spaces and leaving. No one had informed us that the park is in a dangerous flash flood zone and no one from park management came around to warn us the creek behind the park was overflowing its banks. We weren't sure what to do, but eventually realized that the water was going to keep rising. Luckily we were able to get out before the water caused any damage to our trailer, but our truck sustained water damage that will be a major insurance claim. We have since learned that several vehicles and RVs were destroyed by a major flood here in 2017. Unless the flood risk is addressed, I can't recommend this park. We camped at Grand Ole RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

One Mile, Almont, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

On mile is one of the closest national forest campgrounds to Gunnison and Crested Butte and it is generally possible to get a site here. There are 6 first-come sites, the rest are reserved on Recration.gov. The sites are mostly large with much space between them and the road was passable with care by our 34-ft. fifth wheel. The setting near the Taylor River is gorgeous and the river sound helps mask the road noise, which was minor anyway due to the road being pretty far down the hill. The fishing is excellent and there is much to explore in the area. There is a water spigot near the bathroom with threads to fill tanks, but still no nearby dump station. Overall an excellent campground for all types of RVs or tents. We camped at One Mile in a Fifth Wheel.

USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

There are very few options around Gallup and USA RV Park offers security and a clean space to stay while exploring the area. The sites are mostly pull through gravel with full hook ups. Some of the perimeter back in sites (with better rear views) are electric and water only. We paid the weekly rate. Their propane is expensive. We camped at USA RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park), Farmington, New Mexico

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

This is a surprisingly under-appreciated gem in the four corners area. As others have said, it is a collection of parking lots (some paved, some gravel) in the fairgrounds. There are water and electric hook ups around the perimeters and along fences in the center of some lots. We stayed here for five days and for the entire time we were literally the only RV parked in the entire complex. We parked in a "hook up" site but did not use them because we have solar. If we would have run out of water, a spigot was a few feet away. We had a fairly nice river and bluff view, 24-hour security patrols, very quiet nights and reasonable access to stores and other services. All-in-all this was a fabulous bargain and a very nice place to stay for a few nights or longer. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Farmington is one of the closest places to Chaco Canyon. The park is a 1-1/2 hour drive, the last 14 miles of which is gravel road, some quite bad. It is one of the most significant archaeological site in the UW and a beautiful, remote place to visit. Plan on a full, long day.

Boundary Campground and Picnic Area, Sun Valley, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

As others have noted: great location near Ketchum, friendly and camp hosts, bargain price, creek access, some large sites. While officially 9 sites here, two are taken up by camp hosts, so there are really only 7. It has filled up every day by noon the week after Labor Day. Very quiet at night and the fishing appears to be good in the creek. We camped at Boundary Campground and Picnic Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Fishing Bridge gets a bit of a bad rap from reviewers here, but I found it to be pretty nice. Yes, the sites are close together, but our 35-foot fifth wheel with 3 huge slides fit just fine. There is a buffer of trees between each loop, so it doesn't feel like a vast parking lot of RVs. It is similar to many commercial RV parks in terms of space. The location is great for exploring the Canyon area and West Thumb, and not that far from the geyser basins or Lamar Valley. Overall, it is a great option if you want hookups and don't mind paying the fee. The cost is the biggest downside to this park and we opted to stay a week, then move to Mammoth and Madison for the rest of our trip. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Madison Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Madison Campground is managed by Xanterra, the park concessionaire and has all reservation sites that tend to fill up months in advance. There are typically cancellations every day, so even if the sign says "full" it is worth stopping by the office. It is a very large campground with about 10 loops, some of which are tents only. Sites are close together but the setting is nice and the views can be quite good. There are some roadside pull-throughs that can accommodate large RVs, so don't take the web site's limitation to 40-feet combined tow+RV to be strictly applied. The location is great for the geyser basins and the Madison River area. Closest cell service is at least 7 miles away. We camped at Madison Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Baker's Hole Campground - USFS, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Baker's Hole is a great option when visiting Yellowstone. It is a beautiful campground, right on the Madison River (though only a few sites have an actual river view) with a town 10 minutes away, great cell service (Verizon), and electric hookups on some sites. The vault toilets were immaculate and the camp hosts were nice and helpful. It is a 45-60 minute drive to Old Faithful and quite far from the Lamar Valley and Mammoth, but driving for a while is par for the course in Yellowstone. Madison Campground in the park is about 30-minutes closer to everything, but no cell service or food available nearby, and the sites are much less private. Baker's Hole is first come only and it can fill up during Late June through August, but arrive early and you probably can get a site.. We camped at Baker's Hole Campground - USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We were a bit concerned about not having reservations here, but need not have worried. We camped here 2 weeks and it was never even close to full, even on Memorial Day weekend. We stayed in Loop A, which was the most open and one of the only areas of the campground with a view of the Tetons. There were plenty of large sites and they were very widely-spaced. Lots of room to park or pitch a tent. Generator hours were until 10 PM, which was nice. As national park campgrounds go, this was one of our favoirites.

For anyone interested in photography, two of the best sunrise locations in the park are nearby--the Mormon barns and Schwabacher's Landing. The Jackson Whole Grocery is a great local natural food grocer with a selectn excellent selection and decent prices. They also have a cafe with lots of choices. The closest place to buy propane is in town at the Shell station.
