After leaving Fl and stopping in Northern Fl, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and lastly Colorado and staying at state parks in all but Arkansas Colorado was without a doubt the most expensive and unless a certain campground comes well recommended I would be uneasy. As mentioned above there is a daily park fee of $6.00 on top of $16- 18.00 camping fee with no water but with electric, which in my experience is a bit pricey for a state campground. On top of that most have pay showers which is a challenge in itself. The charge for showers was .75 cents initially with .25 per minute if you ran over. I went over there with 6 quarters and set them on the shelf in the shower, I put my .75 cents in and of course the water was cold so I had to wait till it got warm, the temp came up and I jumped in got wet all over, soaped up, went to rinse off and the water stopped. I get another .25 cents and jamb it home and the water still doesn't come on now I'm getting panicky and I figure another .25 cents, put that in and still nothing. Now what do you do, nobody around, I'm naked as a jay bird, and I'm foaming all over with soap and even some coming out of my mouth. As of now I'm thinking that my wife will not have to put any detergent in the next wash the towel goes into. I will say one thing on this campgrounds behalf, no matter what time you went into the wash room it was immaculate which tells me the hosts were on the ball. Oh yeah, the sinks had push type faucets that timed out after 10 seconds a real tooth brushing experience, on top of that only hot water came out. The one we were in was very crowded and the sites were very very close. I was not impressed.
Mississippi has a really good program going, When I talked with the park ranger he told me they were going to pave all sites in all parks in the very near future. As it was we had full hookups and because of our age we got them for $13.00 bucks a night, clean too

There's hardly anything more frustrating than a poorly operating campground shower.
