"Great overnight stop just outside of Fernley, NV."

We’ve stayed at the Churchill Co. Fairgrounds in Fallon, but we were shut out this trip by an equestrian event. A quick search (thank you Campendium) landed us at Desert Rose in nearby Fernley. We called first and made a quick reservation, which I... Read more

Huge spaces spread out around a small fishing pond, awesome views, covered picnic tables, firepits, vault toilets, and trash service – and it’s all FREE. Wow. We were super impressed with Sacramento Pass BLM campground. There are only 6 sites in... Read more

We were impressed with the array of amenities offered at the Sleeping Ute RV Park. There is a nice lounge area off of the reservation desk, a pool and hot tub, bathhouse/showers, and coin laundry. There is a small fenced off-leash pet area and... Read more

"It’s all about the waters… but the campground isn’t bad either. "

While the mineral springs have been used by native peoples for thousands of years, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa first opened its doors in 1868. They offer a variety of accommodations, including RV spaces. It’s a surprisingly nice... Read more

"Lots of options for smaller campers, a few for larger rigs – but what a MESS!"

We love boondocking, but after seeing the mess at Taos Junction I can’t say I’m very fond of humans. We found a lovely site not far from the entrance (turn left before the big dip in the road). Unfortunately, it had been used as a dump site too.... Read more

"Spacious sites under the trees with lake access – lovely campground but a bit pricey for dry camping."

We opted to stay at Sunset Point while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. While it added about 20 minutes of drive time to the west entrance gate, it gave us a much more pup-friendly spot. The sites were spacious and a mix of shady and more... Read more

We loved Steamboat Springs and the KOA has several amenities that make it a worthwhile choice. Sites are typical of most KOA/private RV parks with a mix of FHU, W/E only and primitive. We were in a water/30 amp electric site which put us a little... Read more
