5 Star Reviews – October 2015

By Campendium

Eighty seven campgrounds received 5 star reviews in October! Check out some of the highlights below:

Fritch Fortress CampgroundFritch, TX

This spot has been one of our favorites over our years on the road. It hits the technomad trifecta: free, scenic & excellent cellular signal. – Technomadia

Difficult CampgroundAspen, CO

We stayed here for two nights in Sept 2015. Very pleasant campground. Had a table and a fire ring. Our site #46 was more isolated then others with bushes all around. – Greg – Sock Monkey Trekker

Guadalupe River RV ResortKerrville, TX

We were pleasantly surprised with the resort. It is in Kerrville right on the Guadelupe river. Our site had a water view. There are 3 pools, 2 for adults only and one of them is indoors. We also enjoyed the live music on Friday night at their onsite saloon. – Tentless Texans

Cattail Cove State ParkLake Havasu City, AZ

They have both a beach for people and a designated beach for dogs! There is also a boat launch and fishing from shore, very quiet and restful location. – Gayle & Louie

Canyon Point CampgroundForest Lakes, AZ

We were in Loop A (the RV loop), and the sites are mostly very spacious and private. Lots of trees and shade. All in all, it’s a nice campground in Rim Country. – 4airstreamers

Singletree CampgroundTorrey, UT

We picked out a private spot on the far side of the looped road and went to check in. Then we realized it had closed for the season, so there was no fee! The water hydrants were still on, the bathrooms perfectly clean and well-stocked and there were even flush toilets. Even when it’s open, the nightly fee is only $10. – CM

Paradise Shores RV ParkBridgeport, CA

The young owners are delightful and keep this park very clean and well maintained. Dog friendly with plenty of space below the park for running free. – Jodee Gravel

Lakeshore RV ParkChelan, WA

We spent a lovely fall weekend here. The park is right at the edge of Lake Chelan, next to town. We appreciated the long sandy beach, the playground area, and just the generally large park. – Vacay Wheels

Cove Palisades State ParkCulver, OR

The campgrounds are like an oasis in the desert with green grass and many trees. The sites are near level with the nicest hookup pedestals that I have seen. – Mike and Holly

Plymouth Park CampgroundPlymouth, WA

The River sparkles at about 200 ft from my RV. Sites 1-16 are on the Columbia River side and have a view of trees and some river. The other sites 17-32 have a view of grass, field, gentle hills, road and a distant train. – Andrea E.

Lahontan Reservoir State Rec Area 2Fallon, NV

No one else seemed to be camping in the entire park. It was incredibly serene, and peaceful, save the occasional fighter jet breaking wind in the distance. – Nathan @ Wand’rly

DunewoodChesterton, IN

Campground sites are well spaced with many different options on site length. Lots of trees for hammocks (and shade in the summer!). Hiking close by, beaches, Dunes, history and plenty to see in the National Lakeshore. – Currently Wandering

Forked Pine CampgroundFlagstaff, AZ

At 7100′ elevation, on the Anderson Mesa south of Flagstaff, Ashurst Lake is a hidden gem of Arizona camping…and the camp host is a great guy! – 2DogNyte

Forest Road 688Grand Canyon, AZ

Lots of dispersed flat sites, widely separated. We saw 3-4 other campers driving in and out, but couldn’t’ see or hear any from the site we picked. Road is extremely well maintained and easy to drive on. Lots of signs of elk, although we didn’t actually see any. – Marie G

Grindstone CampgroundTroutdale, VA

Virginia seems to have high standards for campgrounds, not just their state ones. So, this is a national forest campground with both water and electric hookups, plenty of space and trees between sites and spotless bath houses. – Tin Can Annie

Leeds CanyonHurricane, UT

I hesitate the write this review, because it would give away our favorite boondocking spot yet. But we’re gonna be generous and share the wealth. – Ardent Camper


Abbot Bay Boat LaunchMartin City, MT

Abbot Bay boat launch offers individual spaces for tents and truck campers up a dirt road. For the lucky one (or several if you bring friends) you can park right by the lake! – LibbysOnTheLoose

Gifford Pinchot State ParkWellsville, PA

Convenient to the Harrisburg/Hershey area. Beautiful, wooded campground. Great biking paths, hiking paths, lake for canoeing or kayaking.- vandyvagabonds

One Mile CampgroundGunnison, CO

I was back for my second stay and had the grounds to myself, except for the hosts. The hosts are fantastic and the facilities great. – JennGrover

Warren Dunes State ParkSawyer, MI

The dunes are an experience unto themselves. Deceptively exhausting to climb but well worth the effort upon reaching the peak. Panoramic views of the dunes and Lake Michigan are beautiful. – Brian Hetzer

Crosslake CampgroundCrosslake, MN

This is a great destination for lake access and water activities but not really a destination in itself unless you want to just chill out for a while! – WanderWasi

Tiger Run RV ResortBreckenridge, CO

Just like at Blue Water Key, most of these lots are privately owned and you rent from the owners. It’s a very beautiful park with lots of amenities and close to Breckenridge. – Nosh Bus

Challis Hot SpringsChallis, ID

Our nightly rate included unlimited access to the pools. The hot springs were by far the coolest ones I have ever been in. We played for hours without getting to hot or to cold. – backroadbennetts

Stone Mountain Park CampgroundStone Mountain, GA

We were there to visit the park, and of course it’s the perfect base for that. Overall we had a great experience and will likely be back. – BoxyColonial

Glimmerglass State ParkCooperstown, NY

If you can survive without hook-ups this is the place to be! We stayed in site number 40 with an incredible view of the hills beyond. Every evening a herd of deer came and grazed in the next door meadow, and the night sky here was amazing. – WatsonsWander

Ken’s Lake CampgroundMoab, UT

We’ve been in Moab for two weeks now and have stayed at five different BLM campgrounds on all four sides of town. This is the best— no road noise, plenty of room, lots of sunshine. – CM
