Review: Camperland in Beaver, Utah

Camperland 1

The sites and overhanging trees were a little tighter than we like, but doable. There was a little road noise, but we were near the front. The power pedestals were older. Overall, it was a good overnight park, but nothing to write home about.

This Colorado Riverside park is about a half-mile off Interstate 10, right at the Arizona/California border. Some of the sites overlook the river, and are spacious. We had an inter-site pull-through that was tight, but had its own orange trees.

This small casino RV park is clean, but more off-route and tight than we would have thought. It is advertised as being on I-5, but is about 5 miles off the highway and though town. The entry area and driving in front of the casino are very narrow, with confusing signs and large speed bumps.
