Grand Teton, Yellowstone, T Roosevelt, Mt Rushmore,Glenwood Springs, CO

We returned home yesterday from a two week trip up north (from us).
Our first night was in Thayne, WY at the Flat Creek RV park $27.50. It was not busy and probably needs some paving, but really pretty country. We went on to Grand Teton NP and stayed at Gros Ventre CG, no hookups $10.00, 300+ sites rarely fills up. We toured the park in out Suzuki. When we got to Yellowstone it took nearly three hours to get to Old Faithful. We had no reservations and every thing in the Park was full. We went to Rainbow Point CG 5 miles N,3 miles W. We got a site in the one loop that had electric, no water or sewer $14.00. It was near a nice lake and was a great place to stay. After touring the park in the car we Drove To Livingston, MT and stopped at Rock Canyon RV Park on The Yellowstone River. We neglected to bring Repellant, and the mosquitoes were bad, as I discovered when hooked up at their wi-fi hot spot. We went on to Billings, MT, went to Walmart and Costco and left. It was over 100 degrees, too hot! Our next stop was Big Sky RV Park in Miles City, MT. $23.00 with hookups and cable. Not a pretty place, but fine for us. We w3ent on to Medora, ND and the T Roosevelt NP. we stayed at Red trail RV Park and toured in the car. Next stop was Keystone, SD and Miner's RV Park. It was not a very nice place to stay, but the location let us see Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park and come back to the RV for lunch. Our next stop was Kemo Sabay RV park in Hot Springs, SD It was sort of a quaint place, with a few pieces of antique farm machines scattered about. Next we drove to Alliance, NE., parked in the street and visited friends. Went to see "Carhenge" their version of Stonehenge, but made from partly buried, stacked cars. Then on to Denver to visit friends. It was in Engle wood, CO where we stayed at the Flying Saucer RV Park, which is an RV park in name only. It really is an old trailer park with deferred maintenance. Our sewer drain was an old bent, rusty pipe under the RV. $69.00 for two nights. We went on to Glenwood Springs, CO and stopped at Ami's acres RV park. $35.00 It is on a hillside, with terraced sites that are really level. We had planned to go swimming in the world's largest, naturally heated pool, but $18.50 to take a dip in a hot pool on a hot day didn't seem like fun, anyway, we've been there many times.
And then we went home.

Seems you had some good, some bad and some ugly cg's. It may help future iRV2 campers if you could post your cg reviews in the campground review section.

You didn't say but I hope your trip was enjoyable.

Yes, I should have posted in the CG review section. I was thinking more about "who went camping", but it really was not a camping trip. We did enjoy visiting all those places, some for the first time, some the second time and some that we have visited many times.
