"Scenic campground with fun camping atmosphere. "

We just stayed for one night while passing through, but still managed a visit to the fun Lehman Caves as well as a morning hike at 10,000 feet under Wheeler Peak. The Lower Lehman Campground would have been a easier in and out for us, with level... Read more

"Amazing views just a few minutes from a recreation paradise"

This is a truly awesome campground. I am not always generous with 5 star reviews but this place truly deserved it. The space, the views, the peace and the world-class hiking just a few miles away. It is a Corps of Engineers Campground and... Read more

"Beautiful and Peaceful Campground"

Although this is just a few miles off the US50, you feel like you are really in the wilderness. We stopped here for just one night while making our way across Utah from Nevada to Colorado. It was such a pleasant surprise to find such a scenic spot... Read more

"Great little overnight stop on Highway 50"

When you are driving along Highway 50 The Loneliest Road in America this is a great stop to rest your weary head. This campground isn't free - it's actually $10 per night. But it has water, trash collection, and pit toilets. Each site has a... Read more

"Free Casino Parking - Not bad spot for a night's sleep."

We needed a place to rest for the night on a relocation along highway 99. This casino was a great little spot, with almost level parking lot. We parked near the edge of the lot, we didn't experience any noise as the other visitor said, but we are... Read more

"It's a fairground RV park!"

Fairgrounds don't tend to be the most atmospheric places and this is no exception. It's a gravel lot that packs 'em in, so be prepared to know your neighbors. Fortunately it is not too crowded when there isn't an event on, so you tend not to be... Read more

El Chorro Regional Park San Luis Obispo, CA
1213 days ago

"Great location, spacious sites"

Half way between two of my favorite places, San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay, this is a fantastic spot to find yourself for a few days. This is one park where the full hook up sites are better than the dry sites. The dry sites have no trees, and are... Read more

Sherwood Harbor Marina & RV Park West Sacramento, CA
1470 days ago

"Pretty riverside location in a simple park"

Sacramento does not have a great selection of camping options. Many were expensive and looked pretty uninspiring. We decided to give this place a go as at least it seemed to be in a scenic location. We were pleased we did. There are... Read more

Columbia River RV Park Portland, OR
1470 days ago

"Convenient location, well maintained park"

We wanted to explore Portland and this is one of the closest park to downtown, just 8 miles away. In fact the light rail stops just 2 miles from here at the Expo Center so if you don't want to deal with parking in the city, it's a great... Read more

"Great spot for an overnight stop"

This is a beautiful area, but we didn't have time to explore this time as we were on a tight schedule from Portland to Southern California. So for us we were looking for an overnight, preferably pull through, and big enough that we didn't need to... Read more
