Or, were we?
We both longed to see the beauty of Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Teton mountains. Little did we know we would end up staying in 9 different RV parks in 16 days. We came home exhausted, having stood in awe at the beauty provided by God in the states of Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado, but also having experienced some of the worst and best RV sites available in that part of the country.
We prefer parks with full hook-ups. I'm a city girl, bred and born in Dallas, Texas. I don't do camping unless it's the easy way. Still, we love to be out with nature and sit near our trailer soaking in the closeness of God while amongst His wonders.
In case you're planning a trip with an RV to that part of the country this summer or fall, or even next summer, I thought it might be helpful to post my list, to give recognition where it's due and to warn future RVers of difficulties in some places.
I divided the list into 1)good 2)Great 3)Necessity only and claimed one park as 4) the worst. Here's my list:
Summerlan RV Park in Raton, New Mexico
Our GPS got us lost by sending us in the wrong direction for this park, but the lady there
guided us safely over the phone to the right spot. She was friendly and kind.
Not fancy, but it had wide lots where you could sit outside, and it had nice showers. We got in
only 3 TV stations and we did have WiFi.
An unexpected bonus - on the back of the receipt was the salvation message. I thought that
was unique and sweet.
Loveland RV Park, Loveland, Colorado
Very nice park, new club house, grassy area for tents, big trees
They were surrounded by many nice restaurant choices which was helpful at that time.
Cable TV, WiFi
The biggest problem was the RVs were jammed in there. We did sit outside but the lot
was small; only had a view of roadway with many people passing
Okay, drum roll please, my choices for the GREAT ones
Sleeping Bear RV Park, Landers, Wyoming
