 Many of you have asked us about some of the campgrounds and campsites we have encountered in our travels. With this in mind, I thought I would include some photos of some of the sites where we stayed and some facts about each one. Hope you find this information interesting and useful.

Red Rock State Park  - Gallup, New Mexico
Lots of room, windy and dusty, full hookups. Quiet campground.

Bayfield Riverside RV Park - Durango, Colorado

Very nice park with several streams and ponds throughout. Very little amenities, but full hookups, a friendly staff and lots to do in the area. We went up to Silverton on the narrow gauge railway which was interesting, informative and lots of fun.

Portal RV Resort - Moab, Utah.                    

Upscale RV resort but broken up into two sections.  Front section is a campground, rear section is a resort. We stayed in the resort. Pool, spa, very clean restrooms and we enjoyed the use of the adjacent cabana in our site. There is an extra charge to use the garage which we declined. We were able to use the rest of the facility. Close to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.

Rifle Gap State Park - Rifle Gap, Colorado.

Nice facility overlooking the reservoir. Spacious site with full hookups on only two sites. Rest have water and electric, 50 amp but no sewers. There is a dump station. Rifle Falls is a short drive away as is Glenwood Springs. We also toured the fish hatchery and a 2 1/2 mile walk around and above the falls. Very quiet and peaceful campground.

Chatfield State Park - Denver, Colorado

This is a "must stay" park close to everything in the Denver area. The sites are full hookup, spacious, level and many activities. We enjoyed this park and would stay here again. There is a 70 acre leash free dog park on site with two separate lakes for the dogs to frolic and enjoy. Jasmine went swimming until she was totally tuckered out. 

Lakeside RV Park - Glendo, Wyoming

Only park in the area with full hookups. A short distance to the Glendo Reservoir, home to some of the best fishing in Wyoming. Friendly staff with spotless facilities. Some Proghorn Antelope wandered nearby while we were there. Good stop for a night or two but very little to do in the area. We enjoyed the rest and relaxation.

Wind River RV Park - Riverton, Wyoming.

First thought was this park was affiliated with the Wind River Resort and Casino. Not so. Originally called the Riverton RV Park, they changed the name when the Casino opened. Basically a no frills RV park with full hookups. 50 amp service and a small store on site. We explored the area and went to the casino which was a lot of fun. The casino had many slots and everyone seemed to be having a good time.

Buffalo Bill State Park - Cody, Wyoming

We enjoyed this park so much we stayed a full week and I've included two pictures of our site. Only negative was that the site was water and electric only. Dump station on site. Solid 50 amp service though. Site had several acres of greenbelt on both sides and overlooked the reservoir. The river ran alongside the campground. Very quiet and the stars overhead at night was absolutely inspiring. We toured Cody and the Buffalo Bill Dam.
