Shooting Star Drive-In, Escalante, UT

IMG_0198

Shooting Star Drive-In is a hard one to review as an RV Park. But I’ll start by talking about just that.  Were it just an RV park, I’d’ve probably driven right by it.  When we arrived, the RV “field” (that’s pretty much what it is) was vacant. That sort of thing is usually a sign to me to keep on driving, but I knew what else this place had to offer. Check-in was easy. Mark, the owner, was ready for us, gave us the run-down of the place and lead us to our spot (basically, our choice of any of …read more »

Riverside Oasis Campground, Moab, UT

Tall rocks, and hidden below that, loud construction workers

Something was going on at this park the entire time we were there that was not at all the campground’s fault, so I’m trying to not let it taint my perception of the campground itself.  There was some serious road construction — reenforcement and resurfacing — happening on the highway this campground borders the entire time we were there. Not only was it loud, but it was amplified by the huge, flat, vertical concave rock wall on the other side of the highway.  And these darn construction workers didn’t stop working until somewhere between 10 and 11 o’clock every night. …read more »

I wish we could have stayed here longer.  I’m writing this review long after we stayed, and I can’t remember if we only stayed one night because we were in a rush to get somewhere else, or because it was all booked up — I think it it was Full (in Fall!).   And for a reason— it’s a really beautiful park.  The claim to fame, Silver Falls, a very tall but thin waterful that you can hike behind is a real treat.

Sutton Campground, Suislaw National Forest, Florence, OR

A fire on a cold day

We met up with my parents on one of their camping trips up the coast at this National Forest Campground. It was a wonderful place to stay.  Private, wooded sites.  Ours backed up to a meadow with no one across from us, and trees all around.  The sites were paved and level, and it’s important to note that, though the website says “electric hookups are for small appliances only”, it’s standard 30amp hookups. Lots of trails and some lovely short hikes through the woods, and over the dunes to the ocean. We would definitely stay here again.
