5 Star Reviews – September 2016

By Campendium

One hundred sixty campgrounds received 5 star reviews in September. Check out the highlights below:

Camping Municipal de Carleton – Carleton-sur-Mer, QC, Canada

We always wanted to try this campground. Finally realized our dream. We were not disappointed. The view is amazing, it is quiet and reasonably priced. – Grenoulou

Tangle Lakes Campground – Delta Junction, AK

This is our favorite place to camp in the fall. This campground is in a prime location for lake/river fishing, berry picking, off roading, hunting, kayaking, photography, wildlife viewing, hiking. – His and Hers Alaska

Meat Cove Campground – Cape Breton, NS, Canada

With a name like Meat Cove… This private park sits almost at the northernmost tip of Cape Breton Island. You’ll need to head out about 8km of washboard gravel to reach it, but it’s worth it when you get there. – Adventures of Dave and Ann

Flat Rock Creek Campground – Wagoner, OK

Quiet and serene, the campground is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the lake and its natural settings. Great place for birding or fishing. – Cisco

Scaroon Manor Campground – Pottersville, NY

This unique state park is the former site of the Scaroon Manor resort, a place for the big city rich & famous to come recreate. The campground is well laid out with lots of space between the sites. Even full, it’s peaceful. – Technomadia

Box Canyon – Mecca, CA

The location was just fantastic and as long as you visit during the week, you are sure to have peace and serenity most of the time. – Luv2travel

Starlite Classic Campground – Canon City, CO

Located within sight of the Royal Gorge Bridge, this unique campground is filled with retro campers that can be rented for the night. Friendly folks, beautiful setting, and obviously treated with TLC. Highly recommend this place! – Travels with Ollie

Forest Road 318 – Centennial, WY

There is plenty of boondocking in the snowy range area, and the views can’t be beat. This site is the best in the area, although a little difficult to reach if you have a big rig. – David Kingham

Whistler RV Park and Campground – Whistler, BC, Canada

When you have 180 degree panoramic views of the Pacific mountain range from your camp chairs there isn’t much you can complain about. – LivingDriven

Legion Lake Campground – Custer, SD

We camped here at the Legion Lake Campground and it was awesome. We saw bison walking through our campsite every day. The sites are very spacious and not too close to neighbors. – ketah777

Forest Road 281 – Van-Tramp

Instead of staying on the large, crowded, reservoir, we enjoyed our very own river-side camping spot, huge trees, and lots of privacy. – Van-Tramp

Jim & Mary’s RV Park – Missoula, MT

We really enjoyed the feel of this park. We want to return to explore the area longer and would stay here. – Story is our way home

Jackson Mountain Road – Pagosa Springs, CO

The GPS coordinates listed are the first clearing/spot you will come to on the left, about 1/2 mile in. It seems to be well kept and even mowed…We found it perfect for our needs and it is free! – TinCanPlan

Dead Horse Point State Park – Moab, UT

Dead Horse Point is an International Dark Skies Park so stay up late to see the Milky Way then wake up early to see the sun rise over the Point- you won’t regret it! – michelle

Tall Texan Campground – Gunnison, CO

This place is great! Located just far enough away from the small town to not have a lot of noise, but it’s located close enough to Crested Butte to for a short drive. – Joe Hendricks

Squaw Flat Campground – Monticello, UT

We lucked into getting the last campsite available (#22 in the B section), and it’s possibly our favorite campsite of all time. – Travels with Ollie

Campus Park & Ride – Philadelphia, PA

Let’s get this out of the way up front: this park doesn’t have great “curb appeal”. It gets 5 stars based solely on its location. – Jeneric Ramblings

Prophetstown State Park – West Lafayette, IN

This was our first visit to this state park and we were pleasantly surprised how beautiful the landscape was throughout the park! – Tumbleweed

Nairn Falls Provincial Park – Pemberton, BC, Canada

We absolutely LOVED Pemberton and this provincial park. Really large spaces with a few on the river. You can hike straight to Nairn Falls really easily from the campsite. – madelinelemon

Gulf State Park – Orange Beach, AL

Lovely campground with lots to do. Beach pavilion, pool, tennis, nature center. Level asphalt sites with full hookups. – LandCruisingLife
