Campground Recommendations for Summer 2011

For the past four summers, we have stayed at a CG in SW CO which we absolutely love. It has everything we want (long, wide sites, grass and trees, wifi, great location, no kids, FHUs, dog friendly, super owners, golf course within 10 miles, mountains and lakes close by, etc) and that has enabled us to get away from hot, humid central Texas during the worst time of year.

The past two years, however, havenít been all that great. While everything we want is still here, the weather hasnít cooperated. Itís been pretty hot (in the mid 90s) and very windy, both of which I couldíve had if we stayed in Texas. So weíre looking for a new place for four months starting next mid-May.

We are interested in a nice (thatís relative, I know) RV park that has reasonable monthly rates ($300-600 per month), preferably in the Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon region where the weather is more temperate. While the things we want (listed in the first paragraph) would be perfect, we realize we might have to compromise to get something near what we have here. Iím not interested in anything east of the Mississippi, only in the NW. Iím also not particularly interested in volunteering as CG hosts as we have been there, done that for several years.

If anyone has any suggestions regarding CGs in the region, please let me know so I can do some research on them. Iíll be putting this on several forums in order to get a wider response. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

We are looking for something similar, but with perhaps a greater emphasis on golf,,good courses but cheap, ie 20 or so to walk with perhaps a better deal with a season pass.

Idaho Falls has 3 really nice golf courses, but we havent found a park that we would be excited about. There are a couple of possibles but not quite what we want. Later in the week we are off to Idaho Falls that has two nice courses, but havent seen the park yet, then its on to Caldwell for the same type of hunt. We think Caldwell has the park we would like, just not sure about the golf.

The weather here has been excellant, and since its what I call high desert, it doesnt rain all that much, and lows dip into the high 40's and low 50's with highs around 75 on average. The entire southern Idaho area has plenty of outdoor mountains and etc suitable for either a short day trip or even longer,,

I will repost re Twin Falls after we figure it out.

I'll be looking forward to your discoveries! If you are interested, here in SW CO, there are a number of clubs but none that I'm aware of that you can play for $20. Most are in the $35-60 area unless you do as I did and join one with a seasonal rate. Then it comes out to about $25 or under including cart when you play three times or more a week.
