Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the Wingate Section. The camp hosts keep the place spotless. This was probably the cleanest campsite I have ever stayed at. The sites are very spacious and well spaced. Most of the week we were the there the campground was very quiet, but it was also raining, so no one was hanging around the campfire. We found the location very convenient for visiting Canyonlands, Arches, and Moab. Dead Horse Point State Park is also gorgeous with some nice trails around the rim. Be aware that there is no water here but there is a very clean dump station on the way out. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fruita Campground (NPS Campground), Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

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

We were in C loop and it was a nice campground. The sites are out of level, but not horribly, and we were easily able to level our trailer. There was no privacy between the sites and I felt we were pretty close together. There are no hookups and the only place to get water was at the bathroom. The bathroom was clean enough, but oh how I wish they had showers. The campground is right in the thick of things at Capitol Reef and it's an easy drive to all the hiking trails and points of interest. There are even a few trails that leave right from the campsite. The trees hadn't started to leaf out yet, so it felt a little bare & wintry. I bet when the huge trees have leaves and provide shade, the campground is beautiful. The apricot trees did have blooms and the deer hung out under the trees each evening. The scenery is stunning in the park and make sure to get a pie from the Gifford house, they are really yummy. We camped at Fruita Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Valley of Fire State Park, Overton, Nevada

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

We arrived around 1:00PM and were able to get an electric/water site in January. This whole park, including the campground, is gorgeous with lots of hikes and things to see. Some of the campsites are Pull-in types for motor homes so if you back a trailer in, the hook-ups will be on the wrong side. Most of the sites are very good sized and they all have great views of the rocks. The bathrooms were clean enough and they had showers. Thankfully we were out and about during the day because two families that looked like they were living full-time in their RVs camped across from us and were awful. The ranger had to come and collect money from them because they didn't pay. The husband was very LOUD and every other word out of his mouth was the "F" word and he talked (yelled) all day. The kids kept running in and out of my campsite and I had to finally get my teacher voice out of retirement and get on them. I really enjoy kids, but not when they are throwing rocks at each other and fighting constantly with no parental supervision. I know this is not the park's fault, but it put a damper on our enjoyment of the place. We hope to go back and have better luck with the neighbors. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cedar Canyon Campground, Cedar City, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in site 4 which seemed to be the only site without shade or trees. It was a large site though and had a nice fire ring and large picnic table. Most of the sites had a lot of room, but short driveways. The campground was full when we were there and the restrooms became almost unbearable. The campground was generally quiet, but it is right off Highway 14 by a huge curve and you could hear the air brakes of the trucks as well as noise from every vehicle that passed by. Besides all that, it was a nice campground and I would probably return. We camped at Cedar Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Jordanelle State Park, Heber City, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, but busy campground right at the lake.

Pros: View of the lake, spacious sites, clean, great showers, nice camp hosts, store and marina nearby.

Cons: Sites VERY unlevel (we broke our landing gear trying to get level)/ No one seemed to have a level site. We saw some people with 12" -14" of blocking under their jacks (I don't think that's too safe). Our dog got sprayed by a skunk and we saw a rattlesnake in the parking lot of the Red Cliff nature reserve - so there are critters. No shade so bring an easy-up. We camped at Jordanelle State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Edison, Shaver Lake, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

We haven't camped here in over 25 years and I don't remember it being so crowded. We had site 160 and it's a good thing we had nice neighbors because we were right on top of the people behind us and beside us. There was absolutely no privacy. We later moved to site 148 which was better because there wasn't anyone behind us, but the picnic table and fire ring were up above the pad for the trailer and it was awkward to get to. One last unfortunate thing is they don't enforce the quiet time as many people were playing loud music late into the night.

I think the whole campground just needs some TLC. The trash cans always seemed to be overflowing and it just felt a little ratty. One thing that really annoyed me was on the day we were leaving the staff decided to clean the rest room at 9:30AM and he closed it. Many people wanted to use it before check out at 11:00AM. There was a couple of little girls who we very uncomfortable and he wouldn't let them in. When we left at 11:00AM, the restrooms were still closed. Why would you close the restrooms when everyone was getting ready to leave and wanted to use them before getting on the road? Also, does it really take an hour and a half to clean 4 stalls?

The lake is beautiful and there were some nice biking and hiking trails. There is a nice marina with a good ramp. We also enjoyed the museum. We met some very nice people (Our campsites were so close, I felt like we were all camping together), but I think next time I'm in the area I'll try camping someplace else. We camped at Camp Edison in a Fifth Wheel.

South Carlsbad State Beach, Carlsbad, California

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in an ocean side site and the view was beautiful. Our site wasn't very level, but I think it was just that site as others looked fine. We were in a site with no hookups, but a water spigot was right across the street. In fact, water spigots and bath houses were plentiful throughout the campground.

The first night we were there, the people in the site next to us sneaked in outside guests and partied and played the radio til 1:00 in the morning. They were pretty loud but fortunately I was in a trailer and it wasn't too bad, but still rude and inconsiderate of other campers. I felt sorry for the people nearby camping in a tents and the people across from us who had little kids. To my surprise, early the next morning the park ranger evicted the party crowd, so beware, they do enforce quiet time rules. Other than that the campground was quiet and peaceful. It was a great place to walk on the beach and ride bikes. The restrooms were plentiful and cleaned often. It was relaxing watching the surfers and we saw dolphins and seals playing in the water.

Unfortunately, the next night it rained heavily and our campsite turned into a duck pond with 3 to 4 inches of water covering at least half of it. It was still raining heavily in the morning so we just packed up and left. So between the party crowd keeping us up and the rain, it wasn't the best of trips. I'd like to go back some day and try it again though. We camped at South Carlsbad State Beach in a Fifth Wheel.

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park - Borrego Palm Canyon Campground, Borrego Springs, California

Date of Stay: January, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in a full hook-up pull through site. I felt these sites were a little too close. The sites were pretty level, had a picnic table and a fire ring but no shade. There is a paved area for the rv and a very small dirt area with the picnic table. Our site was only 20-25 feet wide which was pretty typical of all the sites. The primitive sites were much roomier. However, this was a very quiet campground and in January, the crowd was of the mature set. The area is beautiful and a great hike to an oasis starts at the edge of the campground. There is also a trail to the visitor center from the campground. You are close to the town, but still feel out and away from civilization. We had a great time going on various hikes. The Palm Oasis and the Slot Canyon being our favorites. I think the campground is managed by volunteers and some were friendly and unfortunately, some were not. There was a lot of them driving around in golf carts and trucks and they loved to remind you of the speed limit and other rules. One of the nights we were there the ranger was having a campfire talk. I didn't know where the group camp fire was located (it's way on the other side of the campground by the primitive sites) so I asked one of the staff in the golf carts and he acted like I was really interrupting his day.

Besides all that, we had a very relaxing weekend and the campground is very clean and quiet. I believe we will definitely return. We camped at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park - Borrego Palm Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
