****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
Sunset over the lake

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.
Mirror Lake Wasatch-Cache
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
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

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)
****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.
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
