Escalante Cabins and RV Park, Escalante, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The rv park is still under construction but the core infrastructure is in - i.e., everything we use. A family in our group used their cabin and were happy with it. The clubhouse is under construction so not open yet (April 2017). They're doing a lot of work. ATT Wireless is spotty at this location -- I called ATT and they said the tower is 30 miles away! Wifi was functional. My 5th wheel is 37' and my truck fit in front of it, so the sites are large. We camped at Escalante Cabins and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Small health food store in town for those with dietary needs (surprising for how rural this is). Regular grocery store is basic. Great base camp for doing things in the area. It is in the middle of the national forest, national monument, state parks, etc. Visit the hole-in-the-rock information center.

Camelot Resort RV Park, Fruitland, Utah

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

The thing going for this place is the rock cliffs wrapping around it. It is beautiful. The Strawberry River goes right through it and a family caught a large brown trout (fyi, no live bait allowed). This type of RV park fits into a different category than typical. It is really rural, very few options in the area, it has a natural geographical draw with the cliffs, it's inexpensive, it kind of reminds you more of boondocking but with water and power. For example, there aren't any site numbers: just pick one I guess.

The RV park itself could use some upkeep. It's clear that at one time someone put some money into it and it has aged. If the park were full, the spots would be tight (two sites share one water spigot). When we were here we only saw 4 trailers total (Sunday and Monday nights). I wonder if weekends get busier. The dump station is pretty nice.

The lodge you can rent and rental cabins look ok. It's dead silent at night and the stars are amazing. Again, think rural and off the beaten path. Don't think KOA. We camped at Camelot Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Joe's Valley Reservoir Campground (USFS), Orangeville, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Forest service campground. Pit toilets, a few water spigots. Sites are not always level. Campground is used by a lot of OHV accessing the Arapeen trail system. Reservoir is pretty, mountains are pretty, great star gazing, lots of trails around the area. Forest service website mentions Joe's Valley Resort having grocery items, renting equipment, etc, BUT IT IS CLOSED when we were there in summer 2016 and looks like it has been closed for awhile. There are no services in Joe's Valley. We camped at Joe's Valley Reservoir Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Southside RV Park, Dillon, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a small park and what makes it really pretty cool is that none of the sites have people directly in front or behind you. There are people to the sides (but plenty of space between) but not really across from you so it feels super comfy and you have a view. This was our first park of our 2 week trip and we ended up spoiled right off the bat.

We stayed two nights. I wish we could have taken time in the old downtown area. There are some really cool looking buildings. The museum on the property is neat. My boys liked the military trucks. I didn't notice any trains really (it seems every town in Montana has train tracks). We camped at Southside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wallace RV Park , Wallace, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The perks of this park are really the town itself. We ended up there on a weekend and the campground really has more of "parking lot" feel than a campground. There really isn't enough room for the tow vehicles so the place gets cramped and getting out was tight. Luckily the people around were respectful which is necessary when you're that close together. There are a few pull-through sites that have a bit more room at the far end. There aren't any trees, but the campground location is in a narrow valley so you don't get sun that long during the day. The grass at our pull-through site was dead. No picnic tables at sites. No wi-fi except at the restaurant. The park charges per person and I can see why -- some sites had tents in addition to RVs. Very close together.

The town is fun. Do the mine tour that meets in town. They take you to a mine with functioning equipment and show you a drill running, muck rakers, etc. The ghost town bus tour was good too. The railroad depot museum is nice (right by the park). Everything is walking distance. A lot of the people staying at the park are there for the bicycle trails, so there are lots of bicycles. ATVs are common too and street legal in town. There is a nice bicycle trail right from the park. There are many festivals during the year -- see what is going on in advance. They had an accordion festival when we were there and it was fun that accordion players were practicing down at the restaurant patio. We camped at Wallace RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Emerald Creek Campground (USFS), Saint Maries, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $6.00
Overall Rating:

Very dense forest of pine trees and cedar trees. This little campground has 18 sites, 3 pit toilets, and one water pump for drinking water. The campground has one site that is a pull-through. All others are back in sites. The trees in the campground are right to the edge of the pavement so many of the sites may look long enough for a trailer but are a challenge to actually get into because of the trees. I have a 37' RV and there were probably 4-5 sites I could get in. Lucky for me I got the only pull-through site. I watched one fifth wheel about my size try to get into a site but couldn't because of the trees (site was plenty long for him). He ended up finding plenty of room in site 1. Most trailers there were under 30'.

Very remote, very quiet, very dark at night. Beautiful area. We camped at Emerald Creek Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

US National Forest Service has an emerald rockhounding site nearby (pay-to-dig, only open a few days a week). There are 6 miles of dirt road to get to it but it is a well maintained road. The washboard road makes going slow in a couple of areas. The NFS rangers from the pay-to-dig site come through in the morning and evening on the days they are open (not sure what happens on the other days).

Crazy Horse RV Campground, Kanab, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We were traveling with 2 RVs in our party and we stayed for 5 nights. On arrival, they said someone had cancelled our reservation. They had given away our site which we had reserved 3 weeks in advance so that we could have our trailers facing each other. After much scrambling they found two sites next to each other but not facing each other that we used. Because my trailer and truck would not fit on the site, they also let me have the site next to it for parking my truck (no charge). So, they made it work but it was frustrating. Their reservation system is a desk calendar with hand written names on it. Ours was crossed out for some reason.

This park is wearing out. The reservation building is old, the pool table inside has torn felt, the chairs looked bad enough I wouldn't sit on them, etc. For example, the roads in the campground are not smooth, there are good sized holes randomly placed. It helps keep the speeds down for sure. The park wasn't cluttered or littered, just terribly worn out.

Electricity and water was fine. WiFi was actually usable (yeah!). A lot of campers were just staying the night and moving on. There are a few full time people there, but I didn't note any big issues there. Road noise was OK. I have dual pane windows. There are some big trees in the RV park. Sites are somewhat level and some people were using a bit of blocks. We camped at Crazy Horse RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lions Club RV Park, Milford, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2014
Overall Rating:

This is a hard review to write, as the purpose of this park is not to be a typical RV park. There are no RV parks in Milford or within 20 miles. There is dispersed boondocking in the area. Approximately 6 sites are available, and the park is meant for overnight or short-term stays. There are two water spigots at the park but it doesn't look like they are intended to be hooked up to permanently -- more for filling your fresh water tank. No power. There is a sewer dump about 100 ft to the north. The park has no hookups or on-site services. A donation is requested when staying -- look for the donation Box. The RV park is next to the rodeo grounds and high school, which has a nice children's playground and park visible from the RV park. There are bathrooms at the playground (probably seasonal). The park is located at 500 North 300 West, Milford, Utah. The town has signs for campers directing you to the park. However, the signs on Center Street direct you down a terrible road for RVs (many gouge marks in the road as trailers have tried to go through the dips on the hilly road). Rather than use that road, go to Main Street and then go up to 600 North and turn West (500 North could be used too; it has one dip but was fine to traverse). Google Maps earth view can show you the area and park. Just up the road on Center street is Penny's Diner attached to the Oak Tree Inn. It is open 24 hours and has good food. The small grocery store in town is visible from the park (Main street and 500 N). The park could use some attention (weeds) and I think if they were getting some donations through stays that they could help it out. If you think of it as boondocking in this small town, it meets a real need. We enjoyed our 2-night stay. There was only one other person in the campground. Even though there are small trees, it wasn't clear where the individual sites were supposed to be, so we parked oriented North/South as the wind blows that direction in the valley (they have windmill power plants outside of town). We camped at Lions Club RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Granite Flat (USFS), American Fork, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is high in the rocky mountains very close to Tibble Fork Reservoir. Amazing pine trees. The campground is spread out and on a slight slope. There is ATV riding in the area, hiking, fishing, etc. This area is the backside of some of the famous Utah ski resorts. It was an old mining area in the late 1800s. The camp sites are smaller but they are spread out from each other. The sites are not very level even though the pads are paved. It looked like most, if not all, were back in sites. I have a 35' 5th wheel and I don't think I would fit in most of the sites. The campground also has some large group sites with paved parking. There are some large grass areas as well. We camped at Granite Flat (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Bear Lake / Marina Side KOA, Garden City, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

The first night we were here was a holiday weekend and they were full so it was crowded. The next day half the park left and it was comfortable! Most of the park is 30 amp and half of the park does not have sewer hookups. There are 50 amp sites and they cement pads where the 30 amp sites are all just grass/dirt which at the height of summer is mostly dry grass/dirt. The sites are fairly level. The area I was in, the sites were quite roomy -- you didn't feel like your neighbor was on top of you. Bonus for the mature trees. They have a lot of cabins and tent sites. They have an overflow storage area that they let us leave our trailers in after checking out so we could go see Minnetonka Cave (you need a reservation if you don't want to wait 4 hours, so we didn't see it). They have miniature golf, a decent playground, an air pillow (think trampoline on steroids), pool, arcade area, ice cream shack, grocery store, ACE hadrware, bike rentals, all on site. Kids seem to really like this place. In the summer there is a local playhouse that does fantastic shows -- check out Pickleville Playhouse which is just down the road (we saw Beauty and the Beast). Most people come here for Bear Lake, but there are other things to do in the area. Paris Ice Caves, the Paris Tabernacle tour, Minnetonka Cave and up in Montpelier there is an Oregon Trail living museum/exhibit that I hear is good. We camped at Bear Lake / Marina Side KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This park has convenient access to downtown Salt Lake City. There is a UTA trax station (light rail) right in front of the park which is a 10 minute ride to Temple Square, Abravanel Hall, the Jazz NBA basketball arena, etc. It is also a couple of blocks away from the county fair grounds (walking distance, or once stop on trax). Mature trees are a bonus. Nice cement/asphalt pads. As another reviewer said, there is not a grocery store nearby (surprising) but there are fast food restaurants to the West. It is urban, but you don't necessarily feel like your as close to downtown as you actually are. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
