RE: Campground websites

In my experience, no one website or app includes all campgrounds. I use the following general websites: RV Park Reviews, Passport America, Allstays, RV Parky, and Woodalls. Free Campgrounds, Free Campsites and the Escapees Days End Directory have a mix of low cost and free campgrounds, dry camping and boondocking locations. U.S. Campgrounds, National Forest Campground Guide, the Ultimate Public Campground Project, and Corps of Engineers Campgrounds are good resources for local, state and federal campgrounds. Boondockers Welcome and Harvest Host are groups that support low cost overnight stops. Some of these websites allow you to download the data so that it can be displayed as POIs on a GPS or mapping program which I find extremely valuable when looking for a one night stop enroute.

RE: US Route 36 across Kansas & US Route 34 Colorado

We enjoyed our trip on US-36 from Hannibal West. There is a considerable amount of four lane and the only one lane each way limited access highway I have ever encountered. A number of the towns have parks that allow camping. some have hookups. This website may help you plan your adventure on US-36.

RE: First Time Across Country to Grand Canyon

As others have said, two weeks is not a lot of time for a trip ofso many miles. West of Memphis, there is a lot to see along I-40. In Amarillo, there is Palo Duro Canyon State Park and the Big Texan on Old Route 66. In New Mexico, Tucumcari still has dinners along Historic Route 66 and numerous murals painted on buildings plus other attractions like the foundary and dinosaur museum at the college. Santa Rosa is another Route 66 town and has the The Blue Hole and Santa Rosa Lake State Park which has a nice campground. In Albuquerque, the Pueblo Cultural Center and Petroglyph National Monument are worth visiting in my opinion. In Grants, there is the Mining Museum. Just South of I-40 going West from Grants are El Malpais National Monument, El Moro National Monument and the Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano. Acoma Sky City is said to be the longest occuppied location in the U.S. They give tours of the pueblo and there is an RV park next to the casino. Homolovi Ruins State Park is near Winslow where you can stand on the corner. Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest National Park are not far from the Arizona/New Mexico border. In the Flagstaff area are Sunset Crater National Monument, Wupatki National Monument, and Walnut Canyon National Monument. Sedona/Camp Verde/Cottonwood are about an hour South of Flagstaff with Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well National Monuments, Tuzigoot National Monument, Palatki and Honaki Ruins, V-Bar-V Heritage Site, Verde Canyon Railroad, Fort Verde State Park, Cathedral Rock, Gold King Mine, Jerome State Historic Park in the area. All this before you even get to the Grand Canyon.

RE: Savannah GA and Charleston SC campground and turs

Check with Old Town Trolley. When we visited Savanah, they had shuttles that stopped at some of the RV Parks.

RE: Things to do in Crystal River, Bushnell etc

There is a fair amount to do in the Bushnell area. There are two large Flea Markets in nearby Webster that are open on Mondays. Mount Dora has a number of festivals and events throughout the winter including a Pow Wow. There are shops, restaurants and a microbrewery. There is an antique boat festival in Tavares. Fisherman's Cove RV and Golf Resort is on Lake Harris and has a boat ramp and docks in addition to the golf course. There is the Strawberry Festival in Plant City (a fair distance away). There are reenactments at Dade Battlefield and Fort Cooper. Lots of lakes and parks. Lake Rouseau RV Resort in Crystal River and Homosassa River (Turtle Creek) RV Resort in Homosassa are popular snowbird parks.

RE: WY, UT, AZ - Teton to Grand Canyon scenic route advice

...SITE will not let me cut and paste off Word...It must depend on what version of Word you are using. I copy and paste from Word 2007 all the time. In fact, the links in my last post and most of the links I post are copied and pasted from a Word document. This is from a word document: Near the Valley of the Gods are: Goosenecks State Park, UT-261 (the Moki Dugway)Scenic Backway, Hovenweep National Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument, Bluff Fort, South Fork of Mule Canyon and House on Fire, Edge of the Cedars State Park, and The Dinosaur Museum if you have not seen them and are interested in visiting the area. There are several scenic byways and backways in the Fishlake area. There are several others not to far away: Scenic Backways off UT-12, Hells Backbone, and the Burr Trail.

RE: WY, UT, AZ - Teton to Grand Canyon scenic route advice

Dinosaur National Monument has a nice campground along the Green River not far from the Visitor Center/Quarry. If you can not get into the Fruita Campground at Capitol Reef, in the Torrey area, there are campgrounds and dispersed camping opportunities in the Dixie and Fish Lake National Forests. In the Moab area, there are a number of BLM campgrounds along UT-128 and other routes. There are also dispersed camping opportunities in the Moab area, but the link I have no longer works Contact BLM for the areas where dispersed camping is allowed). In the Monument Valley area, there is dry camping at Goosenecks State Park and boondocking on BLM land in The Valley of The Gods. There is also a BLM campground in the Sand Island Recreation Area.

RE: Rt. 301 in MD & VA

We prefer to take US-113/13 through the Delmarva area to the Bay Bridge Tunnel and then US-17 to I-95 near the Georgia border. There are many sections of four lane and bypasses of most congested high population areas.

RE: Grants NM campgrounds

We have stayed at both Dancing Eagle and Sky City a number of times. Both are convenient to I-40 an have fuel stations close by.

RE: Best Route from FL to the GC

...Hello. We are new to RVing. We have a 26' travel trailer and are looking to make a 4 week trip from FL to the Grand Canyon. We are wondering who can offer the best route there and back with some places to camp on the way and back....I-10 to Mobile. US-98 to US-49 to I-20. Get around/thru Dallas and take US-287 to I-40. Four weeks may seem like a long time, but you will have to pick and choose what you want to see and how much you want to drive. There is a lot to see just along I-40. In Amarillo, there is Palo Duro Canyon State Park which has a nice campground and the Big Texan on Old Route 66. In New Mexico, Tucumcari still has dinners along Historic Route 66 and numerous murals painted on buildings plus other attractions such as the foundry and dinosaur museum at the community college. Santa Rosa is another Route 66 town and has the The Blue Hole and Santa Rosa Lake State Park which has a nice campground. In Albuquerque, the Pueblo Cultural Center and Petroglyph National Monument are worth visiting in my opinion. In Grants, there is the Mining Museum. Just South of I-40 going West from Grants are El Malpais National Monument, El Moro National Monument and the Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano. Acoma Sky City is said to be the longest occuppied location in the U.S. They give tours of the pueblo and there is an RV park next to the casino. Homolovi Ruins State Park is near Winslow where you can stand on the corner. Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest National Park are not far from the Arizona/New Mexico border. In the Flagstaff area are Sunset Crater National Monument, Wupatki National Monument, and Walnut Canyon National Monument. Sedona/Camp Verde/Cottonwood are about an hour South of Flagstaff with Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well National Monuments, Tuzigoot National Monument, Palatki and Honaki Ruins, V-Bar-V Heritage Site, Verde Canyon Railroad, Fort Verde State Park, Cathedral Rock, Gold King Mine, Jerome State Historic Park in the area. All this before you even get to the Grand Canyon. Between the Grand Canyon and Arches potential attractions are: Monument Valley UT-261 the Moki Dugway Goosenecks State Park Hovenweep National Monument Natural Bridges National Monument Bluff Fort South Fork of Mule Canyon and House on Fire The Valley of The Gods Sand Island Petroglyphs Edge of the Cedars State Park Dinosaur Museum In the Moab area in addition to Arches are: Kane Creek Road Potash Lower Colorado Byway Upper Colorado River UT-128 Scenic Byway Sago Canyon Dead Horse Point State Park Canyonlands National Park Needles District Newspaper Rock

RE: Alternate Route from Oklahoma to New Mexico

...FYI there are no good places for the night between Tucumcari and Albuquerque...I disagree, Santa Rosa State Park located on a Corps of Engineers Lake has a nice campground.

RE: CG near Benson AZ

...We are Escapees, but they told us they had no spots where we would not have to unhook...Looking at the Google Maps Satellite Image, it appears that all of the sites including the transient sites at the far West side of the park are back-ins which is what I remember.

RE: CG near Benson AZ

The Escapees park in Benson has nice facilities. Be aware that you may be placed in a site owned by one of the community members who is not occupying their site at the present time. We were placed in such a site and the adjacent neighbors were definitely not happy that the site was being rented out and transients were coming and going and they let their feelings be known. It seemed to be a close nit community and many were not very welcoming or just completely ignored strangers(transient newcomers). We never got the infamous SKP hugs. If my memory is correct, there were a number of transient sites all located together in a row on one side of the park. I would try to get one of those. Those other folks should know how it works. I'm an Escapee and have stayed at several of their CGs. If you decide to 'buy-in' and get a permanent site, you then have the option of allowing management to place a transient at your site when you are traveling. This a good thing as the collected fees go into the community kitty which can decrease any yearly surcharge the community members pay. I'm very surprised they acted that way.We have stayed at other parks (not affiliated with Escapees) where the rentals are sites owned or long term leased and rerented when vacant. We have encountered similar attitudes by the adjacent owners. For that reason we now prefer to stay away from parks of that type if at all possible.

RE: CG near Benson AZ

...I am heading west on I10 and will be near the town of Benson Az just for the night...If you are not already an Escapees member, and will not use any of the other benefits, you may not want to pay the $39.99 annual membership fee to stay in their park for one night. That said, the Escapees park in Benson has nice facilities. Be aware that you may be placed in a site owned by one of the community members who is not occupying their site at the present time. We were placed in such a site and the adjacent neighbors were definitely not happy that the site was being rented out and transients were coming and going and they let their feelings be known.

RE: NFS campgrounds

...I like the no reservation USGS CGs....Do you really mean USFS (United States Forest Service)? USGS is the United States Geological Survey. I have never heard of them having campgrounds. Two other federal agencies that have campgrounds are the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Bureau of Reclamation. BLM has lots of small campgrounds without hosts. Have only pasted by Bureau of Reclamation sites so not sure what their situation is.

RE: Advice needed-Western US summer trip

Ok I'm doing the KOA for Carlsbad. I'm between Allpen Rose or United for Durango. Any thoughts??We stayed at United Campground, fun to watch and photograph the steam engine passing by twice a day. ..Did you ever consider going to Dinosaur National Monument instead of so much time in Durango? About 3-4 hrs north of Moab. That place looks exceptional and may just rock his world... Dinosaur National Monument and the Utah Field House (both in Vernal, UT) are definitely worth a visit, but may be too far out of your way for this trip.
