Default Heading West from East

I am planning a trip to Tipp City, OH this week and then west to the Denver, Colorado Springs area for business.

I am planning on taking I70 west from Dayton. There is a campground east of Denver called Denver East / Strasburg KOA.

Due my the hectic schedule, I will not be hanging around the park. Just using it as a "base camp"

I am seeking advise on route I70 west/east and info on the KOA.

I have read here, there are some "sketchy" KOA's. The reviews look ok. but.....

Dennis

"I have stayed at Strasbug KOA many times. it is ok, a little tight"

thanks ernie, ok is all I am looking for.

I have read the rv park reviews and others. Consistent message. traffic and train noise.

I do not care if the planes I am working on are flying over all night. a little noise will not be a problem.

Anything to worry about on I70 east/west from OH to CO?

thanks,

dennis

Pretty much the same view exit after exit, one Pilot, Flying J or Loves after another, in a little while they all look alike. I've been across it a few times and there are a few nice state parks you can spend the night cheaply in Kansas & Missouri, also Kansas offers free dump stations in their rest stops. If you're into dry camping Columbia Missouri has a Cabelas that offers overnight stays for free, better than Walmart, quieter, they close for the evening. I can't say too much about OH to MO because we pick up I-70 in Saint Louis. West of SL is Graham Cave State Park near Aberdeen nice and quiet, 12 bucks but only 30 amp and a dump facility but no drive through sites. But if nature, quiet nights with the sound of owls in the woods is your thing Graham is the park. In Kansas at Fossil Creek, the Fossil Creek RV is a no go because it is a royal dump. We just recently came from Denver and I have several sites logged in the books on the bird, call me tomorrow if you like more info.

While traveling I use the Goodsams camping app....there are different ones...... It will show most of the campgrounds with information in the area I'm searching.
