Archie Knowles Park, Mapleton, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very small Lane County park long Rt 126. It is right on 126, the main route between Eugene and Florence, so it is noisy during the day. That's why I gave it an 8 and not a 9. It is also right on Knowles Creek, a great place for kids and dogs to play in the water. Sites are paved, pretty level and partially shaded. We stayed in site 9, the longest in the park and barely fit by overhanging our 43' coach over the rear curb. Three fresh water spigots. Ok AT&T service. We camped at Archie Knowles Park in a Motorhome.

Florence on the coast is about 17 miles away. It's a great place to spend the day shopping, eating and sightseeing. It is also the closest real grocery shopping.

Cape Blanco State Park, Port Orford, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed two months while volunteering at Cape Blanco Lighthouse. Camping rate is $24. Like someone said, I hesitate to review this place because it will become popular. The only reason it isn't a 10 is lack of dump station. Many sites are long enough for big rigs and getting into and out of them isn't hard. Miles of beach and trails thru the woods and surrounding pastures (cows and sheep) are easily accessed. Typical Oregon Parks and Rec facilities, which is to say, very good. Most of the sites are quite large with effective privacy buffers between them. All have table and fire rings. Good water and 50 strong amp at all sites. AT&T reception is spotty and seems to vary within the park. We had good data but erratic voice service. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

Port Orford has more to offer than you think: South Coast Gourmet for soup, quiche and cheese Golden Harvest for excellent meals, breads and pastry Griff's for chowder and fish Ray's market bbg's ribs and tri-tip every weekend Red Fish for special occasion dinners The Spoon in Langlois for great food, especially breakfast. Pass on the "world famous" Langlois Market hotdog, but the ice cream is worth the stop. Must see the Lighthouse and Lifeboat Museum.

Park of the Sierras - Escapees Park (members only), Coarsegold, California

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

One of our favorite parks. This time we dry camped for two nights ($5/night, first night free; $26 for full hookups) on our way to Oregon. Our 43' coach is a challenge here, but they work hard to accommodate us. The park is laid out for a 40' max so maneuvering can be tight. The people here are simply wonderful. Everyone waves, many stop to talk, and all are genuinely happy to see you. The laundry is good, the showers are fine, but a little tight. The dog park is just big enough and there are many trails around the park perimeter to walk the dogs or just hike. Like all Escapees parks, it is immaculate. It's worth joining Escapees to get access to all of the affiliated parks. We camped at Park of the Sierras - Escapees Park (members only) in a Motorhome.

Some of the dry camp sites will be a challenge to level. The casino 1 mile away has the lowest priced diesel fuel and gas in the area and very easy in-out. Raley's market in Oakhurst has an excellent deli, great produce and good wine selection and prices.

Heyburn Riverside RV Park, Heyburn, Idaho

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

What a gem. I hesitated to review it because it will become popular. This is a town operated RV park right on the Snake River. Wide roads, easy in-out, no obstructions and only four other campers in mid-November. The park closes for the winter Dec. 1 - roughly March 15 depending on the weather. No park host on duty at this time of year. Payment also seems to be on the honor system. Cash or checks only. $26 for seniors, less 10% Good Sam discount is a real bargain. The back in sites are easily large enough for big rigs, but the pull-thru sites are not. We had to disconnect and park the car next to the coach, but we are close to 65' hooked up. Watch the curbs, but otherwise no issues. The RV park is part of an extensive riverside complex that is a pleasure to walk and a great place for the dogs, too. The only downside is the odor from some large industrial plant not far away. When the wind is wrong the smell is a little .... strong. We camped at Heyburn Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tumalo State Park, Bend, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

After Nov. 1, just B loop is open. Site B26 is the longest site in the loop. It claims to be 47' but our 43' coach did not fit until we slid the end curb back about 4'. We still had to park our toad in the overflow area near the entrance. Getting into many of these sites is a challenge for large rigs because boulders and trees have been placed right on the entrances severely restricting access. Many trees have not been trimmed properly, so watch your overhead clearances, too. The showers in B loop are terrific, with unlimited hot water and really good heaters. The day use section across the road is very pleasant and a great place to walk dogs. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Motorhome.

Sportsman's River Retreat, Chiloquin, Oregon

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

Site 3, a back-in, partially shaded. FHU with cable, but the cable didn't work. Utilities are at the back of the site. The sewer hookup was elevated making dumping harder than necessary. We had to park the car across the road in a very dusty area; they really need to gravel that. This is not a destination park. The park is 90% residential. There is no view. The shower (one) was clean but really small. Good ATT data. Three PBS channels OTA but nothing else watchable. Despite the state park website claims, there are no sites here for big rigs. I'm glad they were full, causing us to go to Sportsman's Retreat. We camped at Sportsman's River Retreat in a Motorhome.

Burns RV Park, Burns, Oregon

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

Site "59" an overflow site not on the map. $32, 30 amp and water. No reservation. Didn't realize that this park is full every night year round because they are essentially the only game in town for many miles in either direction. Make a reservation! Great park, immaculately kept by very genial hands-on owners. All sites (except 59) are fresh gravel with ample separation. Most are partially shaded, some are not. Cable picture was poor but probably just our connection, didn't try Wifi or use the showers or laundry. Good ATT data. Easy in/out, bargain propane. Decent dog walking. More to Burns than we realized, but this isn't a destination park; most sites turn over every day. We camped at Burns RV Park in a Motorhome.

Twin Falls County Fair, Filer, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Site 41, 30 amp and water. $21/ night. Grass, some shade. Quite long, but would be really, really narrow if the adjoining site was occupied. Lots of grass, some dust, lots of flies and strong odor (horses, cows, etc.). Many fields to walk dogs in but lots of dung for them to eat, too. Great showers and bathrooms in the "new" building. Ok for overnight. Definitely avoid if an event is scheduled. Good for a night or two.

Did I mention the flies? We camped at Twin Falls County Fair in a Motorhome.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Site 814, a FHU, pull thru. Fairly shady, close to neighbors. Had to disconnect dolly and angle it to fit everything in the site. Small but clean showers. Very good dog walking through back gate which gave access to the city park. We didn't use the pool or spa (many kids) or the laundromat. It is in the city not far from the airport so the traffic, plane and train noise is to be expected. If you want/need to visit the city it's closer than anywhere else. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Stock up on wine, beer and liquor before coming to Utah. The state has a monopoly through its stores and costs and choice suffer. Salt Lake City has everything you can possibly need, including good sushi, Costco, WinCo and Trader Joe's. The Whole Foods has a good prepared food section. The small Mexican restaurant adjacent to the KOA is quite good; try the lamb tacos. The city dog park a short walk behind the KOA is 5 acres and always has dogs to play with.

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

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

Site A18, a long shaded pull through. $63 w/ FHU. NOT LEVEL at all. Used every block I had, but still not level. Most sites looked a little better, but lots of leveling blocks in use. Odd sewer connection location, but made it work, sewer connection was up hill! Very tight roads. No Wifi, OTA, or any cell. Marginal Wifi at store/laundromat. Good laundromat. Showers much too expensive, didn't use. Store/deli surprisingly good and no outrageously expensive, even had drinkable wine available. Spectacular scenery everywhere. Also, lots of traffic, despite being mid-September. Tried to get into the Gros Ventre campground, but no space at all on a weekday in mid-Sept! Don't believe the website! Rangers said they are sold out every night for 30+ foot sites all year. Colter Bay Campground sites looked really tight; didn't see any big rigs in there at all. It was also packed. A couple of rangers commented about rapidly growing demand due to huge increase in RV sales over the last couple of years. Make reservations, especially if you are over 35'. Avoid A-loop sites if you can, the maneuvering is a challenge. We camped at Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Buffalo Bill State Park, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Site NF34, very large pull thru on asphalt in lower section. FCFS, no utilities, some shade, table, fire ring. Limited/no shade in upper section. We really liked this park. Spectacular setting, lots of grass, good dog walking. Very good pay showers. Water readily available, good dump station. No Wifi. PBS on OTA, good ATT data. Firewood is on the "pay what you think its worth" system. We had reserved site NSH04 with electric in the North Shore Campground, but site would not fit us, a 43' motorhome. The ranger sent us 5 miles west to the North Fork campground because sites are all large. North Fork is a much better campground, in my opinion. We camped at Buffalo Bill State Park in a Motorhome.

15 miles west of Cody in Wapiti. NOT the way to visit Yellowstone. It is 100 miles each way to Old Faithful, at least 2.5 hours, and there are significant construction delays. Stay in Jackson or near the West entrance for better access to Yellowstone. Cody itself is worth the visit. Lots to do and see. Great vet if your pet has problems: Cody Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Stephanie White.

Overall Rating:

Tough Creek Campground, Site 34. Very large backin on gravel, lots of shade, no utilities in the park. Water is readily available, good dump station, no showers. $17 a night, cash or check only. Lots of bugs, most not biting but swarmed lights when the wind stopped, very annoying. Long way to any service so bring in everything you need. Right on the lake. Virtually deserted after Labor Day; some reservable sites, most fcfs. Great dog walking on the shore of the lake. Sweeping vistas. Rt 20 through Wind River Canyon is quite photogenic. Trains across the lake but no whistles. Got PBS OTA, good ATT data, no Wifi. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Motorhome.

Site A38, a pull thru with full hookups, on gravel, with some shade, some grass. 43' motorhome. Immaculate RV park, limited but ok dog walking. Ok showers. No dump station, not sure how folks on W&E sites dumped. Useless OTA, good ATT data, useless Wifi. Didn't use the laundry. Escorted to the site. There is a very busy train line across the valley that means constant horns. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Motorhome.

~65 miles to Billings: Costco, Walmart, etc. Didn't see much in the city that would cause me to return. 5 miles from Little Bighorn Battlefield Nat. Monument. Very interesting, took guided tour by Crow Indians, a very different perspective; worthwhile. Very limited local shopping, come stocked up. The cafe at the Trading Post is not very good. Lack of competition keeps it in business.

Site 11, a back-in on gravel surrounded by lush grass that is lovely tended by the owner of the campground. Our door faced her vegetable gardens. We had the run of several acres of grass and field, and the George Mickelson Trail is through a gate at the back of the property. The only issues are some road noise and no showers. Passport America rate only good for first night. The location is terrific for all of the Black Hills sights. Rita is very hands-on and helpful. We'd come back for sure.

Rt 87 between Keystone and Pringle has great vistas and lots of buffalo on the road. Railroad Museum and CCC Museum in Hill City are worthwhile. Black Hills Tent and Awning in RC can fix any canvas problem. Mineral museum at South Dakota School of Mines was fascinating.
