Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails, Menifee, California

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We had stayed in this park a couple of years ago in a smaller motorhome (32') and wondered about whether we would find a site for our current 43' motorhome. We easily found a 50A FHU site (arriving on a Monday) and in a couple of days backed up into a recently vacated "lake front" 50A FHU site. I was wondering whether we would have duck and goose poop but it was not a problem. It was interesting to watch the water fowl and their interactions with each other. In walking around the park, it appears the 30A FHU sites that are away from the lakes are much larger. Next to the lake, the 50A sites are pretty close, but still enough room to park our tow vehicle next to our motorhome. The people next to us had two vehicles between their 5th wheel and our rig - so the sites are plenty wide. The roads are in good shape. The sites are in good shape and quite level. When we arrived, the ranger recommended that we just drive the RV around to find a site. With the car attached, we can't back up, so once we found a site where we would fit, we parked the rig and drove around with the Jeep - much easier for us. Rate reflects free stay as Thousand Trails Courtesy Card holders. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Menifee has really grown since we were here two years ago. Lots of shopping on the west side of I-215 (just before Christmas the traffic backs up in trying to make the left on Hahn Road). Stater Brothers and strip mall right at the turn off from Newport Road. We found the drive to Hemet to be reasonable for Walmart Supercenter and thrift stores (Salvation Army and Goodwill - like getting bargains!).

Soledad Canyon Park / Thousand Trails, Acton, California

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second stay at this campground. We like staying "up the hill" in section N. We don't mind being far from the pool and other activities of the campground as we do not make use of them. We get good internet service from our Verizon MiFi (with Wilson signal booster) from the sites in section N. We didn't notice train noise at all unless we were outside the rig. The "bridge" across the Santa Clara River was washed out in the local flooding in August, so the access to the N sites is off the Arrastre Canyon Road. This actually made access to section N easier than we had experienced previously - no 5-10MPH speed limit while driving through most of the rest of the campground. The map provided by the campground indicates that the only full hookup 50A sites are in the lower section (a few in A and more in B) but some of the sites in N have 50A hookups. The sites are "side-to-side" pullthrus - you share the utility area with your neighbor, and there is, at most, one 50A and then a 30A (or two 30A in many sites). We like this campground - there are many areas to walk, and we are ok with the drive to Palmdale or Lancaster for more shopping - though we found that the small grocery store next to the Post Office in Acton has a great variety of items in a very small area! Rate reflects free stay because we are Family Courtesy Card holders. We camped at Soledad Canyon Park / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Ponderosa RV Resort, Lotus, California

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

As Thousand Trails courtesy card holders, we were attempting to stay at as many of their campgrounds along the west coast as we could in the fall. This was the last of the campgrounds that we stayed in that was new to us - we skipped some others because the weather was getting chillier and we wanted to get further south. It was rainy when we arrived, and the campground does not show itself well in the rain. There was really no parking area to unhook, so we were directed to the parking area for some of the Getaway cabins. The roads are in rough shape and quite hilly and curvy. We elected to take a water/electric site in section A just so we did not have to navigate the trip down the hill. There was construction going on at the bridge right near the turn in to the campground, so any signs identifying the campground as Thousand Trails were missing (so we were not initially sure we had arrived at the correct place). Getting out onto the highway heading south from the dump station area was also a challenge due to the road construction - hopefully that will be a temporary issue. On a positive note: we had ordered some items to have sent to this campground with the anticipation that we would arrive in October. Due to a loss of a wheel (!) in Oregon, our arrival was delayed by a few weeks. We kept them informed of our progress and they kept our boxes and we were able to get them when we finally arrived. The staff members with whom we dealt were all great! We camped at Ponderosa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rogue Valley Overniters RV, Grants Pass, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We did not plan to stop in Grants Pass, but had a breakdown on I-5 (lost a wheel/tire from tag axle) just 20 miles north so 'limped' into town. We initially stayed just one night and then moved to a service facility (Henderson's Line-Up - OUTSTANDING!) for diagnosis. While waiting for parts (we have a 17 year old bus), we returned to Rogue Valley Overniters. The first night we really did not experience the campground... now we've been here a week and really appreciate all that it has going for it. The campground is located on the north side of town and there are many things to see and do around Grants Pass. Much of the campground appears to be occupied by permanent residents, but they keep their sites in good shape. The sites that are used by those who are just staying short-term are all near the office and are all very well kept up by the management and staff. We camped at Rogue Valley Overniters RV in a Motorhome.

Henderson's Line-Up is great if you want to get your RV to drive more comfortably. They have a "Road Performance Assessment" during which you go with one of their technicians on a test drive, and then you can look at the underneath of your rig with them. They make recommendations on what you might want to do to improve any driving deficiencies of your rig. We also enjoyed a Saturday tour (11am spring thru fall) at Rogue Creamery, west of town. Robotic organic dairy farm. Fascinating!

Schroeder Park, Grants Pass, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed just for a weekend to have full hookups and dump our tanks. The park is right along the Rogue River and there is a boat launch available. The sites are not on the river, but it is an easy walk to the river. The staff were doing a great job while we were there keeping the sites free of leaves (a continuous task!). There are a few places where the road is very unlevel due to tree roots (think speed-bump made by roots). We particularly appreciated the friendliness and help of the staff at the park. We camped at Schroeder Park in a Motorhome.

South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails), Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

There are limited full hookup (30A, no 50A FHU) at this campground, we got one of the last available ones and it was barely wide enough for us to walk on each side of the motorhome once we got parked. On the positive side, there were trees/bushes/ground right beside us so it was very private from the sites next to us! We were camping after "prime" season so the dump station was out of service as they were doing maintenance/repairs. There was a temporary dump station allocated that was deep in the campground - we didn't want to have to drive through to it so were happy to get a site that had sewer, even if it was narrow. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails - Whalers Rest RV Park, South Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We only stayed two nights and the one day we had here we drove in to Albany, OR to visit Silverleaf Electronics (great trip for that!). The ranger gave us a list of all the site lengths and whether they had a firepit and satellite availability (rooftop or tripod) - very handy - AND they recommended a site that they knew was open that we would fit into. We parked in the part that is north of the road which meant we had to traverse through the whole south side (or we could have tried to unhook and back up, but that probably would have been challenging). The site we were directed to just barely fit our 43' rig, and though it was classified as a pullthru, we elected not to pull out of it when leaving as there was a bit of a ditch pulling onto the road in front and we were concerned we would drag front or back. We camped at Thousand Trails - Whalers Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails-Long Beach/NACO, Seaview, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Long Beach Thousand Trails after prime season, so it was about half full. This was advantageous because the sites are set up so 4 rigs use the same utility area. With only half of the sites occupied, 2 rigs were sharing the same utility area. We have a 43' long rig, and because the site behind us was not occupied, we were able to back in a couple of feet into the site behind so there was room in front of our motorhome to park the toad. If the campground was full, every other RV would need to either park "backwards" or their public door would be right up at the side of the rig next to them, and their "yard" would be on the off side of their rig (and their hoses, power cord, etc. would need to run under their rig to the utility location). Our rate was $0 as Family Courtesy Card holders. The best part about this campground is that the beach is just a short walk away and you can hear the waves. We camped at Thousand Trails-Long Beach/NACO in a Motorhome.

Chehalis RV & Camping Resort, Thousand Trails , Chehalis, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We were at this campground after it had gone into "limited" service for the winter, meaning that there were some loops that were closed and not many activities going on. We were lucky to find a full hookup site (30A) - there are limited sewer sites, so we were glad to be able to get one. Because the sewer sites are almost all in one section, that area of the campground is pretty much 100% occupied. The campground is nicely wooded and nice to walk around in. At this time of year, it was very quiet. Because we are Thousand Trails Courtesy Card holders, our nightly rate was $0. A general suggestion for staying at Thousand Trails - since you get to pick from whatever sites are available when you arrive, arriving the day that most others are leaving is advantageous. We have found that the worst days to arrive are Friday or Saturday. For us, the best days to arrive are Mondays and Thursdays. We camped at Chehalis RV & Camping Resort, Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails, Bow, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is right along I-5, so although you cannot see it, you can hear traffic pretty continuously. Friends had cautioned us to have the windows down in the Jeep when we were selecting a site so we would hear whether the traffic noise was disturbing. We knew that the site had traffic noise, but thought that with the windows closed on the bus, we wouldn't hear it... it wasn't so loud as to be disruptive, but it was constant. The campground is very wooded and very long - if you select a site in the back, just driving in and out of the campground can take a while (at 5 MPH). Our nightly rate was $0 as Thousand Trails Family Courtesy Card holders. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails - Birch Bay, Blaine, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Friends had recommended that we stay in Phase 2, which we did - sites in phase 1 have 4 rigs sharing one utility area, but there are trees in phase 1 which would probably be desirable if it was warmer. The pull-throughs in phase 2 have the utilities between two rigs so if it was full and if you both have slide-outs, you could probably easily share conversation and maybe coffee between rigs. Verizon service was good. Phase 2 was going to be closing on October 1 when they enter limited services for the winter. Our nightly rate was $0 with Thousand Trails Family Courtesy card. We camped at Thousand Trails - Birch Bay in a Motorhome.

Cultus Lake RV Resort (Thousand Trails), Cultus Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We just stayed 3 nights. It was honestly a bit inconvenient to ensure that we used up all our produce before crossing the border (just in case the border officer asked about or required us to dispose of it), and then get Canadian funds to use at the local farmers markets, for such a short stay. We also found that our Verizon service only allowed us 0.5G of data/day on "international roaming" before it slowed us down to unacceptable speeds. Nightly rate was $0 due to holding family courtesy card. Friends had advised us to unhook before going into the campground as there was really no place to detach toad after entering the campground. We found that there was a large parking lot right outside the ranger station, but during the few days we were there, part of it was bulldozed away, leaving a smaller space... I don't know whether that was temporary or a permanent change. We camped at Cultus Lake RV Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is a combined Thousand Trails and KOA campground. Certain sites are available for Thousand Trails. We were not able to get a full hookup site, but had a nice electric/water site in the trees. The campground is nice, and there seem to be a lot of activities during summertime (we were there in September after those were completed). We did find that some areas (specifically the road in front of the family center) which we tried to use to exit the campground after dumping at the dump station had very low trees, so we had to back up and turn around.

The town of Leavenworth is cute - hard to find parking on the street and there is a charge for parking in the lots - $10 on the weekend - high price if you just want lunch! We stopped at the visitor center and a lady there recommended that we park on the street behind the visitor center - that was great - just a couple of blocks to walk and we were able to find a restaurant and get lunch. We also enjoyed the walk down along the river - we were able to find parking for it that had no charge.
