We’ve been to a great many and generally love ‘em.  Some have 50 amp and full services; some less.  Many are fully reserve-able for those who like / need that.  The price vs. the facilities is usually very to extremely good.  Many will have lots of trees and might require some small effort for big rigs, but we have never been to one we couldn’t get in.  But we research before pulling in.

 

For the most part we believe they are a great place to stay.

We love the ACOE parks - usually very spacious sites, good hiking and near water.

The COE parks are certainly a great value with the Senior Pass and we've loved the ones we've stayed at.  My only beef is that a lot of them close early for the year - in September.  We wanted to stay at a COE park in GA on our way south a couple of weeks ago and most were already closed for the year.  The couple that were still open were obviously booked solid.

They have been some of our favorite parks and with the senior pass discount (we haven't reached that age yet) they are a bargain. When my DH hits 62 will stay even more often in these parks. :)

See my just posted post on the JFK COE in AR. We have stayed at a few since we aren't full timing yet and they are always great! Have stayed at three in IA, one in IL, one in KS and now this one in AR. Sites are almost always roomy, campgrounds are well maintained and the amenities in the area are always water related. They closed reservable sites, you can still use them, just not reservable on Oct 15. Dave is 62 so we are staying for seven nights for $70.00. A good price in my opinion.

We spent two weeks at one near Tulsa, OK on Keystone Lake. I not sure but I think it was Salt Creek North. If you have a big rig you want to be in the campground to the left heading north away from Tulsa. Large sites with some shade.

We also spent two weeks at Riana Campground on Abiquiu Lake near Abiquiu, New Mexico. This is one of our, and other RV-Dreamers favorite places to go. The Ghost Ranch where many movies were filmed and where Georgia O'Keeffee lived and painted in beautiful area. You want to go to the Christ In The Desert Mission also. Great area to kayak. Sante Fe and Taos are great spots also.

You can see Abiquiu on our blog:  www.puppypaths.blogspot.com. There is one post in July, "New Mexico photos of Georgia O'Keeffee country." In July there are also two posts on Chaco Canyon and one of on the way to Mesa Verde. I noticed that you plan to do a lot of National Parks. Mesa Verde is one of our favorites. There are bunch of post on it in August I think. There are 5 or 6 on the Abiquiu area starting with "Abiquiu Lake and Cerro Pedernal is Georgia O'Keeffee country" on September 19. In September there are also several on Yellowstone. If you like O'Keeffee don't miss her museum in Sante Fe and her home in Abiquiu. In Abiquiu also go into the little town part behind the post office and see the adobe St. Thomas Church. There are photos of it on the blog also.

In Taos don't miss the west rim of the Rio Grande Gorge, the bridge and the Earthships Biotecture Houses  north west of the bridge. Drive up the west canyon rim. There are several campgrounds along the Rio Grande. Lots of post of us kayak and taking the Enchanted Circle drive north east of Taos. There is a great Viet Nam VeteransMemorial in Eagle Fire on the drive. Best place to eat in Taos is "The Gorge" on the Plaza. There is music there on Thursday evenings I think. Best place to eat in Sante Fe is the Blue Corn Cafe on Rodeo, not downtown.

Back to COE, we have enjoyed them the most of any of the federal campgrounds and find that they have the largest sites. Site and rig size is a big issue in Yellowstone.

Out West, time of the year is important. We were there in the summer and during a week in Moab it was at least 104 degrees everyday. Altitude was also an issue for us. Drink lots. LOTS of water. WATER, not soda.

Have a great time on your adventure!!!
