We visited Wanderlust Crossings RV Park in late October 2020 in the aftermath of a major ice storm that swept across Oklahoma. When we arrived we learned that they had just suffered a power outage from the ice storm and they asked us if we wanted to stay or if we wanted them to cancel our reservation. Just from seeing the cleanliness of the main office / store, it was a no-brainer that we would stay. Honestly, this RV park is the absolute nicest one I've seen, especially considering that there really isn't an attraction or naturally beautiful landscape to make up for shortcomings that you may find elsewhere. This park made me want to be an investor with the owners because they've definitely figured out how to run a tight ship. The sites are huge and well spaced out. The landscaping is freshly maintained. All of the buildings are new and have a modern industrial decor. I wish we had the opportunity to stay longer than two nights. Everything about our experience was pleasant - even in the absence of electricity for much of our stay!
We stayed in Palo Duro Canyon in late October 2020. The canyon is beautiful, with numerous hiking trails and places to take in the natural beauty. The sites are huge and generally level with power & water but no sewer. It's worth mentioning that the campground itself is at the end of a dead-end road IN the canyon, with the only access being the aforementioned dead-end road. The road descends into the canyon from the rim and has a number of steep sections and very tight turns. Unfortunately for us our stay coincided with a major winter storm that resulted in a LOT of ice overnight. The road out of the canyon was so bad that the park rangers had to close it to prevent someone from having a catastrophic accident. We were fortunate to climb out of the canyon at 3PM on the afternoon of our check-out day after the sun had a chance to melt some of the ice and make the road passable. I would not recommend descending into the canyon if there's any chance of winter precipitation after our experience.
We stayed at this KOA for two nights during a cross country trip as we passed through Albuquerque in October 2020. The only reason I give 4 out of 5 stars and not 5 out of 5 stars is the urban location is not much to look at. The campground itself is very well-maintained and the staff are extraordinarily friendly. It was incredibly convenient that there were a number of large RV dealerships in the immediate vicinity, so we were able to pick up some supplies that are not easily found at Walmart locations. We stayed in a large pull thru site that actually had a dedicated "pet suite" with astroturf for our dog. That's the first time we had seen that on a trip and we were pleased with the amenity having come from so many places that don't have grass anywhere.
Redhead Loop Site 14 may have been the most perfect campsite we had on a month long cross country trip from North Carolina to the Grand Canyon and back. We were blown away by how beautiful Fool Hollow Lake was, and the sites were all spread out so much you'd think you're the only people there. It was quiet, family-friendly, and spacious. I really can't say enough good things about this place. We wish we were there for more than just one night.
We were at the Grand Canyon Trailer Village for four nights in October 2020. We had everything we need in a pull thru site that was generally level. The cell service at this location was pretty bad, but there were areas that we could drive to a few minutes away that gave us perfect Verizon service when we needed to do some work. That said, if you have the option to bring a cell phone booster, we had some neighbors mention how effective that was for them. The most amazing thing about this park was that elk would wander through all day and night and they wouldn't hesitate to get close to the RVs. If you want a full hookup site to explore the Grand Canyon, there's really no better option. Highly recommend it.
This RV resort is very clean and well maintained. We stayed here for two nights in October 2020 and we were very happy with our stay. It is close to Zion National Park and not too far from "civilization" if you need to pick up supplies that aren't offered onsite. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to others. One important thing to note: if your GPS tells you to take Sheep Bridge Road to get to Zion River Resort, DO NOT TAKE SHEEP BRIDGE ROAD. Sheep Bridge Road is a poorly maintained dirt road with washboard sections, tight turns, inclines, and other obstacles that make it very difficult to navigate if you're pulling a travel trailer. It was a learning experience, to say the least.
This campground was truly a blessing to our family as we were on a cross country trip in October 2020. The owners went out of their way to help us when we found ourselves in the area without a place to stay. We were at this campground for five nights and we couldn't have been happier. It was formerly a KOA campground, but is now privately owned. There are several pull thru sites with full hookups available. The location is perfect for exploring Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, and Grand Staircase Escalante. We would absolutely stay here again.
We stayed at the Archview RV Resort & Campground in October 2020. It was extraordinarily busy when we stayed, but the staff were friendly and the park was nice. We selected one of their "Extra Large Premium Pull Thru" sites and it was very easy to get into and nicely spaced from other sites. If you've never been to Moab, Utah, you should know that there's very little grass to speak off and if you have pets that can be an issue when they're searching for a place to go to the bathroom (speaking from experience). This resort is incredibly convenient to Arches National Park and all of the area's outdoor activities. There's an onsite gas station with diesel fuel, which we found to be a great resource on our trip. We would definitely stay here again if/when we're in Moab in the future.
We stayed at the Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in October 2020 for one night as we passed through the area. We were really pleased with this KOA, it was clean, quiet, well-maintained, and located in a nice area (not always the case with KOA's we've learned). The staff were friendly and the sites were all level and nicely spaced out. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
We visited Golden Gate Canyon in October 2020 and we were blown away with the natural beauty of this park. We stayed in Reverends Ridge Loop E Site 49. It was a pull through site, mostly level, and it easily accommodated our 20' truck still attached to our 30' travel trailer. The sites we saw were spaced apart generously. The park was quiet and family friendly. We only stayed for one night as we were passing through the area, but we would absolutely go back again and highly recommend it to others. One important note is that RVs can not enter through the entrance on HWY 46 at Mountain Base Road (we learned the hard way). The good news is the entrance is not far from there, but you may want to plan to enter off HWY 119 from the outset.
We had reservations to stay at this RV Park for five days during a cross country trip in October 2020. We were excited to explore Zion National Park and couldn't wait to arrive at this location. When we pulled into the park it became clear that this was primarily a trailer park with people living there full time. We drove through and were not comfortable with it, so we drove to the nearby Walmart parking lot and made countless desperate phone calls trying to find a place that could accommodate us. When we found a place the owner told us that Zions Gate RV Park is known to have problems with homeless people and drugs. We were relieved to have dodged the bullet.
Wilson State Park is truly a hidden gem. It is surrounded by miles of rolling farmland, so it is like an oasis when you see this beautiful lake as you enter the park. We stayed in Foxtail Loop in Site 61. It couldn't have been more perfect. We pulled-in at sunset and discovered that our site had a completely unobstructed view of the sunset over the lake. We stayed for two nights and couldn't have been happier with it. There are several hiking trails throughout the park to explore. We were surprised by the warm weather when we got there in early October 2020, it was 94 degrees! That said, we would absolutely go back and definitely recommend it.
We visited Basswood Country RV Resort in October 2020. All in all our experience was a positive one, but prospective visitors should know that there is a large section of long term renters that you must drive through to get to the short term sites. This gave the impression that this was less a vacation park and more of a trailer park. The facilities were clean, but older. The site we stayed in was large and level.
The access road off the Interstate initially had us second-guessing our decision to stay at this campground. However, we were quickly put at ease when we got onto the state park property (only a short drive down the access road). The park itself is very well maintained. It is heavily wooded with lots of shade at most of the campsites. We stayed in Site 48, which was a back-in site that backed-up to a large green area that our kids truly enjoyed playing in. The weather in early October 2020 was perfect for a camp fire and the stars really stood out at night. There are several trails to hike, including the one to the cave. We would definitely stay here again.
This RV park was clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and directed us to our site via golf cart. The sites were large and level.
We had a great time at Fall Creek Falls when we visited in October 2020. The park is very well maintained and the campsites are nicely spaced. We were supposed to stay in campsite A26, but had a really hard time locating it when we arrived after dark. We ended up staying in A25, which was a little difficult to get our 30' travel trailer into due to trees surrounding the site and the access road. We ultimately learned from a park ranger that A26 had its own service road, which we would never have found without the direction from the ranger. The time of year was beautiful to visit and the hike down to the base of the falls was short enough to do prior to our check-out time and long enough to help get our kids' energy out before the next leg of our trip. It was a truly beautiful waterfall. We would definitely go back.
