Hagerman RV Village, Hagerman, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

A really nice park. Most of the lots under mature trees, dirt/gravel pull thru sites level, but a little narrow. Whole park area grassed, so much nicer than the gravel you see so often. No dedicated dog run, but pets (on leashes) allowed throughout the park. Amazing showers, nice, tiled. Solid plexiglass doors! Not the dreaded curtains!! Would be nice if there were hooks on the walls for clothes, towel, etc. Wi-fi OK, 1.5Gb download, probably not good enough for streaming movies, but sufficient for emails, Facebook, etc. Easy access, right on the main drag of Hagerman (Hwy 30) but quiet. Only antenna TV, but was able to get the 4 main networks. All the staff we encountered were really friendly & welcoming; We'd stay there again. We camped at Hagerman RV Village in a Motorhome.

Grande Hot Springs Resort (formerly Eagles Hot Lake RV Park), La Grande, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Nice level pull-thru sites. This is a big, spread out campground, so theres plenty of room between camp sites. There's acres of ground to walk your pets; they ask for leashes but don't seem to enforce it. There's a small heated pool & hot tub behind the office (jets don't work, but nice & hot for soaking). Rest rooms & showers really nice, paneled walls, stone patterned tiles in showers. Great wi-fi, showing 15Gb download, 2Gb upload. A few downs. Only antenna TV, couldn't pull in NBC. More trees would be nice, although each site has a sapling. All staff super friendly & helpful. It was so nice we decided to stay an extra day, so quiet & peaceful here. We camped at Grande Hot Springs Resort (formerly Eagles Hot Lake RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Gold Country Casino RV Park, Elko, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

OK, first off, this isn't a luxury resort, but it doesn't pretend to be. Like most RV parks in Elko, it's about 50% residents, but they're a friendly bunch. We have a rather unusual motor home, a 1988 Wanderlodge, so it drew quite a bit of interest. I had about 5 people all trying to guide me into my slot! Then they said all the residents were getting together for barbecue & beer and we were more than welcome to join them. As I said, a friendly bunch!

Some sites are rather narrow, but there's grass around most of them (a rarity in Elko). They're all back-in, I think they all have full hookups, 30 amp only. All sites are level, some packed dirt, some concrete, all fairly well maintained. There's a dog walk area at the end, "puppy pickup" stations all around. As the name suggests, the park is behind the Gold Country Inn & Casino, but although on the main drag, it's surprisingly quiet. The casino itself is one of the smaller ones, but if you join their "players club" you get $10 of free play, which can be used there or at the (much larger) Red Lion Casino across the street. We spent a pleasant evening at the two casinos and came out a few dollars ahead.

You get access to the hotel seasonal pool. The bathrooms & showers are a bit basic, but clean. Good water pressure and quite roomy showers.

We only stayed the one night, passing through, but I'd stay there again, especially given the negative reviews on this site for other Elko parks. We camped at Gold Country Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you have a big rig, call ahead. They only have one site that our 40-foot motor home would fit in.

Dutch Flat RV Resort, Dutch Flat, California

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

Interesting place, sites carved out of a coniferous forest. 30-amp electric, just stayed overnight. Just off I-80, but surprisingly quiet. Sites were fairly level, although there was a bit of a drop-off to get to some of them. They said there's an age restriction for older vehicles so had to "inspect" our 1988 rig. But honestly, some of the (supposedly) permanent residents are in really broken-down looking rigs. They need cash or cheque, no plastic.

2 combination bathroom/showers. Surprisingly clean and spacious, good hot water pressure. The camp host will tell you all about the town of Dutch Flat given the slightest opportunity, but we didn't have time to see it. Good place for overnight. We camped at Dutch Flat RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Marble Quarry RV Park, Columbia, California

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

Umm...the parking spot was fairly level. There was 30-amp electric hook-up. It was rustic and quiet That's about all the positive things I can think of.

They advertise cable, but it didn't work. When I asked about it, she said "good days, we can usually get 2 or 3 stations"! I was able to pull in CBS from the antenna, and a fuzzy Fox. The "pull thru" slot we were assigned wasn't, a 25-foot rig may have been able to maneuver in around the table and fire pit, but not our 40-footer. There was a combination store/office/shower/restroom at the entrance. Most spots are partially shaded, and there's plenty of space around some, others are crowded together. There's a walking trail to a disused marble quarry, maybe 5 minutes, but if you take a dog, he'll be covered in "sticky burrs" once you're done - I speak from experience! The park was not designed for big rigs; a couple of sharp bends, with nice big chunks of marble lining the road edges! We camped at Marble Quarry RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pismo Coast Village RV Resort, Pismo Beach, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

A really nice park! Spaces not too close together, all seemed level, we had a wide packed dirt area next to our rig with a picnic table & fire ring. Plenty of restrooms/showers spread through the campsite. There's a clubroom/ store/restaurant complex centrally located, with what looked to be a nice pool.

There are "beach access" gates along the west side of the park, but Pismo Creek opens out into a sort of lagoon between the park & the beach. It's about 10 yards wide & muddy-looking, and although some fellow-campers said they "just sloshed through it" to get to the beach, we didn't care to. There's a sandy path through the sand dunes, & if you go left, it eventually gets to where the creek empties out in the ocean, & you're on the beach, miles of sand, nice surf, very few people. Taking this route to the beach was about 1/2 mile. Unfortunately we booked late so were only able to stay 2 nights; 2nd week in October, ant the park was full. We are definitely coming back next year! We camped at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For beach access, take North walking exit, walk over bridge, take first left. Much quicker than using "beach access" gates. Need bathroom code to get back in thru North gate. Also, there's a 7-11 right across the way from this gate, a bit cheaper than the on-site store.

From the beach, the town of Pismo Beach is steps away. It's not very large, easily walk-able. It's a typical seaside town, good variety of restaurants, souvenir shops, etc. Highly recommend "Hoagies" for fish & chips: a bit of a wait because fish is battered & cooked to order, but well worth it - and come hungry! Portions are HUGE!

San Bernardino Natl Forest/Dogwood Campground, Rimforest, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful location up in the mountains, but not for the faint-hearted or for vehicles prone to overheating. The drive entails 16 miles up a switchback road, precipitous drop-offs on one side. I drive a 40-foot rig, and some of the hairpin turns meant using both lanes!

Once there, the place is isolated, tranquil, beautiful. Our wooded campsite was isolated enough that we didn't see anybody except the park ranger soon after we arrived. Shower house was an easy 1/4 mile walk, nice hot showers, spacious shower stalls, everything clean.

Apart from the drive there, the only 2 negatives were that my GPS tried to take me in the back way, through a footpath (not the park's fault, but ended in a narrow cul-de-sac), then when we left, no exit signs! We were driving round loops not designed for a 40-foot RV for about 15 minutes till we found the camp host who gave us directions out. We camped at San Bernardino Natl Forest/Dogwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Breathtaking scenery for hiking, photographing. If using GPS, you will pass the entrance from the main road. The entrance is about a mile before where the GPS tells you to turn off. Its on your left, and not too visible from the road. If you get to the big DNR building on your left, you've gone too far, but you can get turned around in their driveway/parking lot.

Ventura Beach RV Resort, Ventura, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $94.00
Overall Rating:

OK, first, the bad. I'm a newcomer to California RV campgrounds, but I think $90+ is extortion...the "+" being pretty much everything! $10 per day for extra vehicle or trailer, $25 for dump fee, $5 for water fill-up, $4 per day per pet They advertise a free shuttle downtown, but it only operates Saturday! Prices are $75 to $90, but all they say they have available is the $90. WiFi, but no cable. Road noise from 101 pretty bad all night.

Now the good. Parks well-maintained, grass round all the "Premium" slots, shade trees, pool & hot tub, fairly good WiFi (average 1.4GHz via "speedtest"), showers/bathrooms clean.

Conclusion. will not stay here again! I'd be leaving tonight except I booked online, & one of their many rules is "no refunds, no exceptions" We camped at Ventura Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Ventura is about 1/2 hr away. Beach physically close, but over the 101, 25 minutes walk, or rent bicycle ($6 per 1/2 hr) Santa Barbara about 15 miles up coast. Feria Beach fairly close with beach side parking (not overnight).
