best campgrounds

Looking for suggestions....New to getting on the road and exploring somewhere I have not been. Thinking on leaving southern California in a month or so to head up toward Yellowstone area. Will be going 15 but not fixed on any set plans. Any campgrounds in New Mexico, Idaho or Wyoming you found are "must see"? Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums. I always use RV Park Reviews - Trusted Reviews of Campgrounds & RV Parks to find places to camp. The reviews on there tend to be pretty accurate.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. That is a very broad question are you a full hookup camper at established four star campgrounds or a unimproved off the grid boondocker?

Idaho is a great p!ace to boondock. Nearly every town has an RV dump, so you can easily stay in dispersed USFS or BLM dry campsites and still find water and a dump in the next town. The dump locations are generally well marked on the main highways, so are easy to find.

Thanks for all your responses. Great help and will check out that web site. Also good to know we will have no problems finding dump stations in Idaho. Looking forward to finding nice campsites near rivers, lakes and forests. No need for organized entertainment or having our meals cooked by someone else. Enjoy your travels...

Depending on how far you drive each day, a great place to stop for the night after leaving SoCal is at the point where I-15 goes through a tiny corner of Arizona. On a hill right above I-15 is the BLM's Virgin River Canyon Rec. Area campground. It has 75 first-come/first-served, no hookup sites, but has potable water, flush toilets in the restroom, picnic shelters, and fire pits. It is pretty remote, but some sites back up to the river. And the best part is the cost--$4/night. Hard to beat when you just want a quick, on-and-off campsite for one night.

X2 With this website. I never leave home without it and I usually read though several reviews get a broader perspective of what I might be heading in to. Where possible I'll search out reviews for the same months as I'm planning on going. That way it gives me an idea about such things as flooding, bugs or the likelihood I'll need to reserve in advance.

When you have found somewhere, then take a quick look at google maps to check for things like railroads.

When you've stayed, try and leave a review to assist others in making an informed decision about staying there.

Have fun camping and stay safe.

I am doing some traveling in Iowa and I found a truly nice campground. Union Grove State Park. It is about 35 minutes from I80 but very much worth the little jog. Located between Marshaltown & Gladbrook. My 1st attempt to load a picture below. It is on my page I made a 360 for viewing.
