Date of stay: October 12 and 13, 2014
We had planned to stop in Springville, Utah on the 12th. We departed from Evanston,Wy. around 2pm that afternoon as it was only around 100 miles to Springville. We were going to stay at East Bay RV Park that was listed in our “Escapees’ Travel Guide 2014”. Well when we found the place it had KOA signs up. So David went in to see what the rates were and stuff. He came back to the RV and told me that the park had been sold, taken over by KOA, and no longer accepted Escapees Member discounts. The overnight rate for our rig with no KOA membership would be 50 bucks. That was a little steep for us. So being that it was still early in the afternoon, we decided just to continue on to Ephraim, Utah. Well we missed that exit, so just kept on going to see where this drive would finally end.
It is early evening now. There are no parks listed in our guide for this area. So I set the Tom Tom GPS device to look for campgrounds along our current route. Well Tom Tom came up with this little gem.
We had to check ourselves in as it was nearly 8pm. So that meant filling out the registration card, place money in envelope, and drop it in the after hours box.
We picked a pull thru site, they are so much easier to get in and out of.
It was quiet had no troubles going to sleep.
The next morning we made use of the showers. They were clean and hot.
We also did the laundry. The washers were top loaders. The dryers were the big commercial type found in laundry mats. The washers were a dollar and the dryers were 25 cents for 7 minutes. They were good dryers got very hot so only cost 50 cents a load to dry.
The outdoor pool was drained for the winter, but it looked nice.
There was also wild life as we had some turkeys not 6 feet from the bedroom window in the morning.
All in all it was a nice little park. I would stay again if we ever go through that way again.
