Campground Review #68 Grand Canyon Trailer Village RV Park, Grand Canyon National Park

On this episode of Campground of the Week, Kerri Cox of TravelswithBirdy.com reviews Grand Canyon Trailer Village RV Park. We are calling this a Campground Smackdown, because Kate Dunbar reviewed the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park back on Episode #28. Listen to both episodes to get a complete picture of your camping options when visiting Grand Canyon National Park.


Kerri Cox was happy that her family decided to stay at the Grand Canyon Trailer Village RV Park, mostly because of the location. The Grand Canyon is notoriously difficult to navigate during peak season because of the crowd congestion, and Kerri felt that camping in the park made it easier to get in and out.

Campground #45 Balmorhea State Park in Toyahvale, Texas

Balmorhea State ParkToyahvale, Texas

On this week’s episode of Campground of the Week, we are so excited to welcome Kate Dunbar with our very first review of a Texas campground. Kate takes us to Balmorhea State Park in Toyahvale, Texas.

This unique state park was first constructed during the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The crew of unemployed young men built the San Solomon Springs pool, which covers over two acres of land and is home to a variety of aquatic species. Over 26 million gallons of pure artesian water flows through the pool every day, and the water is a constant 74 to 76 degrees. This is truly an oasis of a state park during the hot Texas summers.

Listen to Campground of the Week in iTunes

Kate provides all the details you need to know about camping at this State Park, including her pick of sites and how much you can expect to pay. In addition to swimming, expect your activity’s calendar to be scheduled with star gazing, hiking, and photography. Oh, and you could also get scuba certified during your visit!
