About Narwika

Partially retired (Independent Contractor now speaking on Information Governance/Security) - waiting for better half to catch up... Fair amount of summer camping but best trips are Snowbirding to Phoenix and trips from there around the southwest.

Pheasant Ridge RV Resort, Wilsonville, Oregon

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

We've stayed at Pheasant Ridge several times and although some rate this clean and orderly place highly, please be aware of a few things. First - this is an old campground but newer center house, offices etc. a number of years ago. The "pull through" sites are VERY narrow and VERY short. Our 40'+ Jeep had to be pulled apart just to get to the largest sites they offer. Secondly, getting into the slots are trying (and I've driven for many years) - and getting out is absolutely horrible. You will scratch your paint and pull things off your RV unless you jockey back and forth several times. If the place is full, you may have real issues not hitting RV's across the road from you. Thirdly - there's many signs and notices about everything everywhere. Comical is not the word. Fourthly - what's disturbing is we couldn't walk our two small Yorkies down several of the roads to get to an exercise area. So we used the grass next to our rig and faithfully picked up appropriately. Fifthly - about that grass - it's tiny and mostly sloped down to next rig. What's so great is its location across from Costco and other shopping. Camping world is a few miles south off freeway. Portland proper is relatively near by. Eastern Portland suburbia is readily accessible via I-205 whose interchange with I-5 is just a mile north. Our suggestion is to expand with an updated area for pull throughs and leave the current sites for small trailers or such. The staff were "there" but not necessarily happy to be there. But gosh - all those signs and regulations and laws and rules! We no longer use this campsite, heading down south a few miles to Aurora which is NOT as nice by any means - but all we need is a night-over anyway. We're marking site as two stars because it's very difficult to get in or out. We camped at Pheasant Ridge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Costco, Target and other shopping across a very busy street. Take the car! Fry's Electronics is south by an exit or two and Camping World is south on frontage road on west side of I-5.

Premier RV Resorts of Redding , Redding, California

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here several times. Large interesting place to stay. Our 40' + Jeep had no problem with their pull throughs with utility island right next to our basement doors. Concrete pads are tad lower at back of RV but level otherwise. A few pull throughs have a bit of a ramp up from access road to the pad. Other trailers and small RV's can park elsewhere. Nicely landscaped, very quiet, almost village atmosphere with small creek going through their campground. We're not Premier members and were welcomed by staff. VERY popular place and recommend reservations throughout the year. No walk-to shipping or eating - need a vehicle. We will stay again. We camped at Premier RV Resorts of Redding in a Motorhome.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We've stayed here several times over the years. Good (long) stop over from or to Phoenix. All gravel sites mostly level BUT sloped down at front or back of rig that's hard to see via eye balling it. Minor issue - utility islands are located deceivingly "open" but as you pull in pull in tight from a wide entry. Strongly suggest walking the site before getting to it. Very large campground and it DOES become full. Very popular, so make reservations. (A distant second-rated campground is one exit west, but on north side of freeway.) In season oranges can be picked from trees throughout the campground. Plenty of room to walk dogs, even amongst the orange trees along the property perimeter. Because the curbside dip is very noticeable - enter and exit onto the street on an angle if possible. Water is normally okay except for drought 2015 when it was a smelly brown. Only suggestion we have is for more pull-through sites during their two peak seasons. We will continue to use Orange Grove as one of our primary lay-over sites between Phoenix and Seattle. We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Heritage RV Park, Corning, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We've stayed at Heritage 5-6 times. VERY easy to access from freeway which is a few blocks away. We've NEVER noticed freeway noise. Finding Heritage is challenging because their primary sign is high on a billboard post and small one on ground. SIMPLY look for a tiny shopping center with a pizza place and Subway - you must enter THROUGH the shopping mall! New owners in 2014 that really spruced things up very nicely. ALL sites are level gravel. Spacing is adequate with grass and trees. A few long term campers reside mostly along outer perimeter. Over nighters and short term use pull throughs running down center. 40' + Jeep no problem. HOWEVER their originally installed utility islands are oddly placed and require lengthy extensions, especially sewer. Dog friendly. Fast food, food store, diesel near by. Friendly folks. We will continue stopping by. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

The tiny shopping center you must enter through has a great little pizza place.
