A.C.T. Campground

By |July 19th, 2015|

Moab, UT Website: http://actcampground.com/ Overview: This is a brand new RV park in Moab. It opened just 3 weeks prior to our arrival. We were very thankful though, as all other RV parks in the area were fully booked due to the annual Moab Car Show. Due to its newness we did have some trouble because the gravel pads were not compacted enough. Therefore our jack pads were buried into the earth. There are also no mature trees. The workers are very friendly and trying very hard to fix the issues. We also give them kudos for using eco-friendly building practices! Campsites: Gravel pads that are fairly level with 30/50 amp, sewer, water, and cable. The sites are somewhat small, but due to the roads within the park huge rigs (40+ feet with huge trailers) did fit, they just jutted out into the road. Most sites are very closely spaced with no privacy. We lucked out and got one of the two somewhat ‘spacious’ sites. Amenities: Beautiful ecofriendly bathhouses, community kitchen (including a Weber outdoor grill), and laundry room. A community fire pit is also available. Tent sites and cabin style room rentals are also available. Pet friendly: Yes. However, the park is small and pets must remain on a leash. Internet:  Free Wi-Fi and great cell signals!! Price:  $39-44/night Rating: 2/5

Jordanelle State Park

By |July 14th, 2014|

Herber City, UT Website: http://stateparks.utah.gov/park/jordanelle-state-park Overview: This is a nice Utah State Park just outside of Park City.  It is located along the shores of Jordanelle Reservoir. It is about a 45-minute drive to downtown Salt Lake City. Wade stayed here for 10 days while I visited my family in New York.   He enjoyed his stay and Wizard loved lying in the tall grass.  The lake is nice but at the time of our visit it was somewhat low and the water was not swim quality for us.  It enables easy access to all the Park City amenities and activities.  The park is very busy on the weekends but quiet during the week. Campsites: Fairly level pull through or back in sites that are paved with partial hook-ups (50 amp, water) or full hookups (limited number). Each site has a nice paved patio area with picnic table and elevated fire pit.  Most sites have lake views. Amenities: Bathhouses, cabin rental, lake access, camp store, rental lake equipment, beach pavilions, playground, and laundry facility. Pet friendly:  Yes Internet:  Free park Wi-Fi and great cellular signals Price:  $28/night full hookups, $25/night partial hookups (electric/water) Rating:  3.5/5 Jordanelle Lake

Bryce, UT Website:  http://www.brycecanyonmotel.com/bryce-campgrounds.html Overview: This was a nice, wooded, privately owned RV campground 6 miles outside of Bryce Canyon National Park.  They provided nice fire pits and were very friendly.  The RV spots were somewhat close, but we requested privacy and received an end site with more space and thus privacy. Campsites: Gravel, level sites with full hook-ups (30 amp, water, sewer).  Picnic table and fire pit at each site.  It is a wooded property with plenty of trees but the sites are fairly close.  We had a end site, so it was more private.
