We were dismayed to find that many of our favorite backcountry camping spots had been washed away by floods. Not stoked about campgrounds that have the ambience of a WalMart parking lot, we came to the Pads. It was quiet, never more than two...
This is your typical NPS campground, with limited service. That's OK, it's not expensive ($15, 50% off with the geezer pass). It's clean, there are great views of rock formations, and many of the camp sites are tucked into rock formations....
We needed to post up for a couple of weeks so my wife could attend to some family affairs, so we found this campground after a short search. It is 4 or 5 miles from Mesa. The campground is extremely well run. Every site has water and power. The...
We were passing through on our way to the UP of Michigan. I should have looked at Google Earth first. The campground IS clean and well managed. It consists of a series of concentric circular roads with RVs (mostly) parked pointing towards the...
We stumbled across this place a couple of days after Christmas. We were heading west and needed a place to stay for the night. It was dark when we arrived and could make no sense of where we were parking. We woke up in the morning surrounded by...
We've stayed atCanyon View before and liked it a lot. Threat of rain caused us to check out Sunset View. While they have running water, it's just in the (clean) bathrooms, and no faucet is threaded. The bathrooms are lit, but have no receptacles...
What a surprise! Memorial Day weekend and there were only three other cars here. Had a great hike to one of the ruins (a guide is necessary). Clean and great views!

Our plans changed and instead of heading to Utah, we needed to stick around the Front Range so I could catch a flight to California early this week. The idea of duking it out for a campsite on the Front Range was unappealing, but at the last...
We met up with some freinds at the visitor center nearby, and decided to stay a couple of days. We are still working, and require cell service, of which we had plenty. This small campground was very clean and had large sites that were spread out....
