Good Stopover

Came through with a lucky grab over the holiday weekend when someone didn't arrive for their reservation. It's not a bad spot if you're in the back of the park. There is some road and train noise. We we're unfortunately right up front which shares a driveway with a gas station. That meant car noise all night. Plus it was very exposed. While we didn't have any issues, we we're very aware of the direct access to anyone who stopped at the gas station. Generally the facilities we're nice, clean, and the front desk staff were friendly.

Open Lot by the River

Open lot that backs up right to the river. There are no "spots" or amenities. There is a bathroom facility though. No tree cover and it's right next to a popular wind surf area so it's often quite windy. There are also a lot of fishing right off the bank. Good spot to just pull off and stay for a night. Not close to much else.

Good stopover spot

Very clean park. They were about half full when we were there and the noise level was very low. Not much of a long term spot, lots of movement in and out.

Showers and bathrooms were very clean and the sites we're very big. Lots of pull through spots. Good Verizon signal.

Convenient to town

This is a great campground spot. Just a few minutes outside of Bend. The spots are clean and nestled in a wooded area. The showers are clean and super warm. The campground is quiet. 2/3 Verizon bars with LTE.

Close to Crater Lake

Free camping after April 30th. Permits are required otherwise. It's a big open parking lot with two fire pit areas and the snow hut with a wood stove in there. You can also go down to the lower lot area, which is a pretty steep and bumpy road maybe 100 yards long. Below there are a few other camp sites close to the river. Wouldn't take an RV down there even though there is space to turn around.

This is as close to the NP as you can get without being in a formal campground, which aren't open until summer season.

Our first night there were 4 other groups camping and our second night we were the only ones.

Rough Going

Tiny spots all stacked up to one another. There seems to be a lot of permanent visitors. Passed through and kept on going…

Basic but Convenient

The camp host wasn't very polite when we pulled in. The camp sites we're pretty open and there wasn't much privacy. The campground was clean and although it didn't have much above and beyond the basics, it served as a decent spot to get to the hiking trails and into the town.


Nice spot down the road from the national parks. Spots line the river. Spots aren't super spaced out but they have the basics.

Outside Arches NP

Only about 20 minutes outside Arches and 45 min outside Canyonlands. The camp sites back up to the river. No cell service. Not far outside of town.

Middle of Yosemite Valley

Beautiful campground within walking distance to multiple waterfall hiking trails. Close to the village. Right in the middle of the valley. Be aware of the time of year if you stay here, traffic in the valley can be nasty. And it may not be fun after a day of hiking to have to drive back into the valley

Up against the rocks

The scenery at the campground is super cool with big rocks right next to some of the sites. The spots are small, really small, and they're stacked up next to one another. I can imagine during a busy time this would be a loud spot.

Perfect campground

This spot is incredible. It backs up to some beautiful rocks and the sunrise was to die for. The spots are spread out and nestled between rocks and brush. Quiet, but small campground.

Good spot, not riverfront

For the price ($29 EW/$31 Full) it's a great spot. We stayed in F loop, partial hookups, and there's a Riverside walking trail to get you down by the river. Looks like some other spots in the area have spots right on the river but they're pricier. The state park is quiet and the spots are spaced out pretty well.

Great spot in the Redwoods

The campground is right in the middle of the trees and backs up to the river. Spots are spacious. 1x Verizon and no big RVs.

Hot Springs and People Watching

This is more of a run down spot and the RV sites are more of parking spots. Although it does come with E/W. The hot springs we're very fun and although the place does smell like sulphur, you get used to it and appreciate the unique spot in the middle of wine country.

Big Campground

This is really the only campground in the NP. It's within a few miles to the major trails and caves. The spots are more private and you will see lots of wildlife in there too!

Right in the Middle

Excellent location right in the middle of the park. You're an easy drive to most of the park. The campground backs up to big rocks you can climb on. The spots are well spaced and they were very clean.


This is such a cool camp spot. The road is unpaved and has potholes but go slow and you'll be fine. The sites are right next to the beach and the view is to die for. There are many surrounding trails you can hike up the redwoods to. There's a 21 foot limit on the road and campground.

Not the Worst

The park is a bit run down. There are definitely a lot of long term residents. It is right across the (busy) street from the harbor and less than a mile into town. 4 Verizon bars and decent WiFi. Showers weren't bad either. The spots are clean and they have full hook ups.


This has been a favorite site for us. It's nestled right in the redwoods and there is a ton to explore around it. There are trails right across the road and you're right next to the visitor center. VC has WiFi and the campground had great Verizon service.
