****Rockport State Park Utah (Link to Utah State Parks)
30 min from Park City Utah you will enjoy Olympic Village this is a must see
 Camp Hosting in Juniper Lake Campground.  It is scenic area with top of mountains have snow right now, the lake is man made reservoir which stocks trout, wide mouth bass and tiger.  When arriving the weather was cool during the night and comfortable during the day but I am sure as the summer starts it will be warmer will let you know.

 

There is only 1 campground with hook ups 30amps,& water. The other campgrounds have water but not directly at each site.  The Camp Host site has full hook ups, I
t is a well maintained park as all who work here take pride in the park. 
The people we have met so far Ranger Joe, Chris and others are fun and caring.

there is great fishing in the lake, you can go into Peoa and get a 1 or 3 day fishing license

This is our buddy he will come up to our shoes and sit on them eating the leather. Always looking for a hand out

We each had our own cart work was not that hard, we really enjoyed the park and the people.

All sites have plenty of privacy between each all with Ramada's, grills and fire pits
Our site has a Ramada behind us along with a barbeque grill and fire pit, we also have our own porch & full hookups 30amps,septic and water. Which makes staying here at this park feel more like having a home.

 We visited several of the state parks in the area today July 08 here are some pictures

Jordanelle State Park is located in a picturesque mountain setting near Heber City (off of I-40 from Park City or Provo). The park offers an array of recreation opportunities near the Wasatch Front. Camping, boating, swimming, fishing, and hiking are some of the activities to do at this very popular park. The park offers two recreation areas, Hailstone and Rock Cliff.

Year-round adventure awaits - golf, hike, bike, camp, horseback ride, snowmobile, cross-country ski, and snowshoe at Wasatch Mountain. During warmer months, reserve a tee time at the popular Lake and Mountain golf courses. In winter, ski or snowmobile through the alpine terrain.

The well known Mountain and Lake courses at Wasatch Mountain State Park (also off of I-40) are consistently ranked among the most popular, affordable and scenic in Utah. Nationally, Golf Digest rated Wasatch Mountain as one of Utah's Best Places to Play, giving the facility 4.5 out of 5 stars. At an elevation of 6,000 feet, golfers enjoy cooler temperatures during summer months, but surprisingly, the course also offers early spring and late fall play.
 

The campsites here at Wasatch have full hook-ups are small and do not have Ramada's but if you like golf you can't beat staying here

Mirror Lake  Wasatch-Cache National Forest

A wonderful drive from Rockport about 1 hour going on the 132 to the 150 you will see lots of floral and large pine as well as the Provo River.  The top of the mountain to Mirror Lake is about 10,000 ft and we found snow still on Bald Mt.
There are plenty of dry camps along the way clean and easy to access, we only took the drive up too get away for the day but it would be a great place to hike, snowmobile, snowshoe etc. We should have stopped to take picture of the campgrounds but it was getting late and had too head back down. Our first stop was at the Duchesne Tunnel which was built in 1949 to allow water to the people below the mountains. 

The water coming from the tunnel is milking,

made me what to see if I could pan for gold. Don't know if there is any but would sure like to give it try.

The next stop was along an old bridge with the Provo River running

 Bridle Veil Falls what a site the water is so clear and you can walk behind the falls.

 
 

The floral is abundant

****Balmorhea State Park Texas

south of I-10 off of 17 towards Toyahvale, TX about 6 miles.  We had stayed here in the summer one year when it was green and not too hot. Large pull-through, 50 amps also water there is a dump station, and nice duck pond as well as rentals cabins, tent areas and swimming pool. Short driving distance to Fort Sutton

Aug 15 2006



We stayed at**Memaloose State Park, OR, a beautiful Park on the Columbia River, about 15 miles from The Dalles, although it was extremely windy we were will enough into the trees for
the wind not to bother us. 

 Cost here was $20 for full hookups, there are no pull-through so if you are towing a car you will need to undo before backing in. The spot we had was long enough to park auto in front of our RV.  (see larger view of maps)

 

 
July 23rd-30th 2006
****Beaver Creek Campground (Federal Park of South Dakota)


 

  Custer, South Dakota 

We are deep in the woods around the cabin area of the Park.  As soon as we sat up the RV a deer walked in front of us and up the wooded area behind. We have full hook ups and the only draw back is the trees preventing us from getting TV.  But I love the idea of no TV, we do have the internet so Mike is a happy camper. Since we are some distance from the actual RV park there are no amenities to use, however if you were to stay in the RV campground (****Beaver Creek Campground) there is a general store, swimming pool and a creek to walk plus you still are very close to Custer (small little town with a lot to do) here you will find Flintstones village, rock shops and lots of restaurants.

 

****Parks we would stay in again, large pull through, full hook ups, well maintained, activities, 50/30 amps
 
***Parks we would stay but do not have activities
 
**Parks that do not have pull-through (back in only),30 amps, traffic noise, railroad noise
    (since Mike retired from the railroad this is the number one thing we do not need to hear )
 *Would absolutely not go back
