Port of Newport RV Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is very clean, and all staff are friendly and attentive. The year-round host is frequently driving around in his golf cart ready to answer questions. He's very knowledgeable and helpful. The entire park is black-topped with small strips of ground cover, dirt and woodchips between sites, which are level, generous and spacious being both very long and wide. This is definitely a big-rig friendly park. Perimeter sites are back in, but all interior sites are pull-thru. The laundry room is very large and clean but $4 to do one load of laundry is pricey. This park was packed the entire week we were here. There is some noise from the fishermen launching their boats from their diesel trucks then hosing their boats down. Also, many diesel pickup trucks are moving about often but it quiets down at night. I'd say the hike to beach is about a half mile away. I'll definitely return. We camped at Port of Newport RV Park in a Motorhome.

Willow Bay RV Resort & Marina, Nine Mile Falls, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

First of all, this is a beautiful park right on the lake, and it's very peaceful when it's empty. HOWEVER, on the weekends it's extremely noisy with boats racing by, jet skis, screaming babies and barking dogs until 10:00 p.m. When you call for a reservation, you're connected to a center which doesn't communicate with the park. Even though you receive an email confirmation assigning a site number, the park is FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, which brings me to the next big issue: All electric and water are on double pedestals and the electric has only ONE 30 amp plug; the other is 20 amp so if your neighbor is using the 30 amp plug, too bad. There is no cell service, no WiFi service, and no TV service. When we arrived and our site was taken, the woman checking us in was very apologetic, and we discovered there were no 30 amp sites available until the next day when most campers were leaving. The next big issue is the address, which is not valid. GPS will tell you that you have arrived 6 to 10 miles before you actually get to the park. The website does not list GPS coordinates and no one tells you that the address doesn't work. We tried calling the phone number several times, but no one answered. The city and street are the same: Nine Mile Falls, but that doesn't matter. Here's how we found it: My sister typed the park name into Google, when it came up there's a tab that says "directions." She tapped that tab and we were successfully directed to the campground. If you're coming from Spokane down Nine Mile Falls road it's on the left. All sites are grass with a picnic table, which is about the distance that separates you from your neighbor...no fires. We loved the park once we found it and when it was empty. It's very family oriented with a volleyball net, sandbox and roped off swimming area. Many people had an RV and one or more tents in their space. There is no sewer and no dump station. We camped at Willow Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Crescent Beach & RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Yes, the hosts are very vigilant about patrolling the beach, but they also pick up trash while they're there, and they're all very friendly. The roads in and out are gravel, but they are watered to keep dust down. Our site was on grass, was semi-level, and was very deep, but narrow. We had a large motor home next to us for the first night and they were very close and noisy. The only trees were behind us. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and Victoria Island from inside our RV. There are lots of shells and tide pools to discover on the beach. High tide can take up the entire beach, so look at the tide schedule in the office. We had a spot near the office, so Wi-Fi worked perfectly, but we turned our phones off due to constant roaming and to avoid international charges from a Canadian tower. I was disappointed that no cable was available at these rates. We were also charged $8 per night for our little Chihuahua, which I thought was excessive and not very pet friendly. Our site was next to the small graveyard, but it didn't bother me. I did pick up lots of burrs or goat heads in the soles of my shoes walking in and around the park, and the sand fleas on the beach are numerous, but they don't bite, they're just annoying. We saw a pair of Bald Eagles nearly every day. There were no 30 amp spots available, so we paid for a 50 amp spot. Fortunately, my sister had purchased an adapter from the last campground when we ran into the same problem. The laundry room was spacious and clean but only had 2 washers and 3 dryers. We didn't have any issues with the sewer system. There's a blacktop patio about 6'x3' near the picnic table and fire ring. If you want a spot on the water, you will pay for it. We camped at Crescent Beach & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Crescent Lake, about 10 miles inland, has a lodge with restaurant and gift shop, and they rent paddle boats, kayaks, and fishing boats. It's beautiful, but don't feed the ducks or the duck police will scold you.

Salt Creek RV Park & Golf, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is difficult to rate. Many spots are full-timers who live in really run down travel trailers, and a couple have junk piled around them. There are several park model-type homes as well, some new, some old. There are also several full-timers who take very good care of their space by mowing their lawns and planting flowers and vegetables. The camp host works day and night. He and his wife are very friendly and offered to take us into town with them when they went grocery shopping since we didn't have a tow vehicle. There's only one washer and dryer, but the room is kept tidy. Our spacious spot was on grass and not level at all made worse when someone drove through it while the ground was wet and left deep ruts. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. The electric must have been updated as there was a nest of wires covered with a bucket next to the circuit breaker. This park has a very casual policy regarding dogs being off leash and not being picked up after, but most people lived by the rules. Most of the residents were very friendly, but there were a few that had some heavy traffic in and out which could be suspect. Also, being near the highway could be noisy at times. There were several large mature trees, but not at our site. There is a large, beautiful grassy area for the tent campers separate from the RV area. There's also a 9-hole golf course behind the RV park that's decent and golf carts and clubs are available. Everyone obeyed the 5 mile-an-hour rule up and down the rock and dirt road so no dust was really ever kick up. We would come back if we were on a tight budget or no other parks in the area were available. GPS and signage got us right to the park. We camped at Salt Creek RV Park & Golf in a Motorhome.

The general store in Joyce is 3 miles away and the prices aren't too high. The store also has a post office and gasoline. Crescent Beach is 4 miles away, but be careful, a large section of the beach is private, characterized with poles and flags. There are tide pools for exploring and shells for collectors. Crescent Lake was about 8 miles away. The area is very beautiful, but be careful not to feed the ducks or the duck police will scold you.

Archview RV Resort & Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

A mature tree for afternoon shade is at every site. This park is clean, very well maintained, and there are cute cabins that run along the back. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We had no problem navigating our 37' RV to the site. We arrived after check-in closed but there was security driving around, and they were very helpful. The general store is well stocked and reasonably priced, charcoal grills are at every site, and there is a play area for kids and a small pool. The dog walk area could use a little sprucing up, but they provide bags and trash cans for clean up. The park notes that GPS is inaccurate and that they are located off U.S. Highway 191 just past Highway 313 if you're coming from the south or just before if you're coming from the north. You can easily see the signs for the park from the highway. We camped at Archview RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Trail Break RV Park, Glenns Ferry, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We were greeted by one of the owners as we pulled in, and he knew who we were! He helped guide us into our site and offered to assist us with hooking up. Check-in was quick and easy. This park is a gem. It's clean and beautiful with many large trees and a large, manicured lawn area. There is grass and mature trees between each of the level sites with plenty of room for slide outs for each RV. There's plenty of space to walk the dog. The owner stopped by later to advise us that fresh coffee is available at 6:00 a.m. Next to us were 2 sets of RVer's that are regular campers who come here several times per year. Everyone was welcoming, friendly and inviting. We loved, loved, loved this place. We will stop here every time we come through Idaho. If we didn't have reservations elsewhere, we would have stayed longer. GPS directions worked perfectly, and the park was easy to locate. We camped at Trail Break RV Park in a Motorhome.
