MamaYeh RV Park, Prince George, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This RV Park is owned by one of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Over the last 10 years he has been building this RV park by himself. It is very well thought out but there is still work to be done. The roads are not paved and when we were there it was very muddy from the spring rains. The owner was out there with his back hoe, trying to grade the surfaces, but it was a bit of a hopeless cause. There is no office, but you will be greeted by the small RV at the entrance with instructions for drive ups. If you call ahead, he will text you all kinds of information. Hookups were good and well located on the long pull-thru site we stayed in, but the mud was an issue. It was fine for an overnight stop. We camped at MamaYeh RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Historic Hat Creek Ranch, Cache Creek, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

There is 30 amp electric but no water or sewer at the site. We arrived after the office closed and though there is a self pay option, there were no instructions as to where we could fill our water tanks. Sites are grass and were very long and wide. They backed up to the horse pasture and the horses came up to our back window to say hello. There is also a large dry camping area in the adjacent field which costs less. The property has a restaurant that is open for breakfast and lunch and a large gift shop. Many tour groups stop here because they offer educational historic programs with staff in period costumes. The horses pull a stagecoach that takes guests on a ride around the grounds. The programs are NOT included in the price of camping. We would stay here again, but would check for where water filling area is. We camped at Historic Hat Creek Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Sunrise RV Park, Santa Barbara, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

Don't let the low rating for this park turn you away! They've been under new ownership for the last couple years, and the old reviews don't reflect its current state. If you want to be in the heart of Santa Barbara, this is the place to do it. LOCATION: It's definitely an urban park, located right next to Highway 101. Noise from the highway was my biggest concern, but it turned out not to be a big issue. There is a 12' high noise barrier wall, which helps. You do still hear the traffic during the day, but the traffic dies down markedly after about 8 pm. I'm a light sleeper, but with my usual earplugs in I heard nothing and slept fine. The tradeoff is that you're just a few minutes from nearly everything in Santa Barbara, including downtown and the beaches. BIG RIG ACCESS: Only a few sites are readily accessible to big rigs, but the owners (who were full-time RVers themselves) know which ones they are. Be sure to let them know if you have a big rig and they'll tell you if they have a site you can fit in. We were in site #2, which had plenty of width and length for our 41' 5er, and it's right near the entrance for easy access. SITES: Vary greatly in width and length, but the owners will try to put you in one that fits. They are gravel and level. There are some nearby palm trees, but not much shade. Hookups are at the back of the site, so come with plenty of hose and power cord. CONNECTIVITY: Screaming wifi (10 Mbps+ up and down) with solid and stable connections. Some of the best I've seen. Verizon and AT&T both have good but not great coverage (2-3 bars). MANAGEMENT: Outstanding. Owner-managed, and they live on site. Super friendly and will do everything they can to make your stay great. They can also provide great sightseeing tips. VALUE: I do think it's overpriced considering the proximity to 101 and the park's limited amenities. But it's southern California, and you're paying to be in SB and close to the beach. There aren't many other options. We camped at Sunrise RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There are two entrances--the main one, and a "restricted" one just for the larger sites near the sound barrier wall. The owners will tell you which one to use. If you're using the "restricted" one and coming north on 101, be aware that it's an immediate left directly off the exit ramp at Salinas Rd. It's easy to pass by it.

The Californian RV Resort, Acton, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

LOCATION: on a hillside above CA-14. Some freeway noise if you're outside, but not bothersome, and barely audible if you're in your rig. Nice views of surrounding mountains. Generally quiet park with mostly higher-end RVs. You're out of the big city, but it's still accessible - although it will take about 45-60 minutes to get into central LA or Pasadena, or more if traffic is bad. Not much in the way of shopping or restaurants in Acton, but there are many choices in Palmdale, about 8 miles away. BIG RIG ACCESS: very good through the park itself. Most sites are pull-thrus. Turns getting into and out of sites can be tight, especially with overhanging branches, but management will trim them if needed. SITES: average width; you're not right up against your neighbors, but you are close enough that their rigs mostly block your view. Long enough (just barely) to park our truck in front of rig. Very level, even though park is on a hillside. Some sites are all concrete, some have concrete pads with adjacent grass strip, and some are gravel, so ask when you make your reservation. Many sites have trees at one end or the other or both. CONNECTIVITY: strong wifi signal throughout the park, but their connection to internet seemed poor. Wifi frequently disconnected. We had to rely on our Verizon hotspot most of the time. Verizon and AT&T signals weak but usable. MANAGEMENT: Excellent. Some of the friendliest and most responsive folks you'll ever meet. Any concerns we had were addressed promptly. VALUE: at $775 per month (electricity included), it's a good value considering the area. We stayed one month + four days, three of them at Passport America rate ($23) and the last with a Good Sam discount ($40). OVERALL: This is an excellent park, and we would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. The main disadvantage is the distance from LA if you want to do in-city activities. We camped at The Californian RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Ms. G's RV Park LLC, Loraine, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Not a destination park, but great value for an overnight stopover at the Passport America rate. However, it would be overpriced at the regular rate of $30 for a 30 amp full hookup site and $40 for 50 amp. Many pull-thrus, easy access from I-20 but far enough away that you don't hear traffic noise. There is an active rail line nearby, but we heard no trains after about 10 pm. Sites felt spacious, but we were one of only 4 rigs in the park. Water pressure was good and power was reliable (although the pedestals in our site and others weren't active, so the owner ran a long extension cord to our site, but it worked fine). Sewer connections are slightly higher than the sites, so rigs with low-mounted outlets may have a bit of trouble draining their tanks. AT&T voice coverage is weak (2 bars) but usable. Verizon data coverage was fine.

The owner lives about 8 miles away; he'll meet you at the park if you call the park number about an hour before you arrive. There is a camp host but otherwise no on-site office or management, but really no need for one either since there are very few amenities. This park is only 2 years old, and was originally developed for monthly use by oilfield workers before the energy bust. It is still a work in progress, and I'd expect its facilities to be improved over time when the oil and gas market improves, but right now it's best for self-contained rigs. We camped at Ms. G's RV Park LLC in a Fifth Wheel.

Sierra Hermosa RV Park, Questa, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Great new park, opened in 2014. Owner lives nearby and is on-site frequently. He's one of the most friendly and helpful park owner/managers you've ever met. Park infrastructure (electric, water, sewer) is excellent. 23 of the sites have 50 amp service. Campground wifi coverage is excellent; you can get a strong signal pretty much anywhere in the park. Wifi throughput varies depending on how many other people are using it, but it's usually much better than average. Level sites with enough space to maneuver a big rig easily. There is a small pond in one corner of the property, with a couple of large communal fire rings nearby. Although the park was probably 75% full when we stayed there, it was VERY quiet. Many of the RVs are occupied by folks who are working temporarily in the area, so we didn't see them much.

Sites 1-14 are the most desirable, as they are furthest from the highway and back up to scenic open space. We loved Site 8 - with the pond out our door-side windows and the mountains and open space out the back window, we hardly knew there were other RVs here.

At $28/night (regular rate) it's a good value, but the park will also accept Passport America for up to 6 nights. At $14/night it's a steal. They also have very reasonable weekly and monthly rates available. We camped at Sierra Hermosa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There isn't much to do in Questa, other than the Enchanted Circle and convenient access to the northern section of the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument, which does have some spectacular views and lots of hiking trails. But, you're only 30 minutes from Taos and 20 minutes from Red River.

Pleasant Valley Cabins & Campground, Cimarron, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

The best thing about Pleasant Valley is the location. Each site backs up to the Little Cimarron River, which is just a few feet away, with a grassy area including picnic table and a grill between your rig and the water. The sites themselves are mostly shaded also.

Unfortunately, the park is relatively old, and the owners don't have much of a customer service orientation. Although we had full hookups, the electrical service was only 30 amps, not 50, and this was not mentioned anywhere on their website or during the phone reservation process. In addition, our coach's electrical management system showed we were getting only 102-104 volts at the pedestal, so it kept shutting off our power due to low voltage. When we asked one of the owners about this, she said, "well, I'm not the electric company, so there's nothing I can do about it." True, but not very nice. Although we had paid for a week, we left after one night (and the owner willingly refunded our money for the unused nights) and went to a different park.

Also note that there is NO COVERAGE from either AT&T or Verizon (voice or data) available in the campsite. The store does have free wifi for customers, but it's usable only inside and in the immediate area outside the store. I was able to get AT&T coverage by driving east about 1/2 mile on US 50. For Verizon, I had to drive several miles west to Cerro Summit. We camped at Pleasant Valley Cabins & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Galveston Island RV Resort, Galveston, Texas

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

This park is at the far west end of Galveston Island, and as a result it doesn't stay as full as Jamaica Beach and other parks closer to the city. It's very new, with large concrete pads with patios, back in and pull-thru sites, all with full hookups including cable TV. Well maintained. Large pool and hot tub. Noise from the road can be a little bothersome at times, so recommend a site away from the road. Other than that, it was very quiet, though we were here in the wintertime; I'd guess it's much busier in the high season. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Resort is across the street from the beach, although you do need to walk a few hundred feet to a beach access road. Beach is just OK--typical for the Gulf. Closest groceries and gas are in Galveston, about 18 miles away.

Matagorda Bay Nature Park, Matagorda, Texas

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

Lovely, low key, very well maintained park, located where the Colorado River meets the Gulf of Mexico. There are two RV loops; the south loop is closest to the Gulf and the Nature Center, while the north loop is closest to the office and the boat launch. Both loops have back-in sites on the outside of the loop and pull-throughs on the inside. All the sites are large enough to accommodate big rigs (ours is 41' plus tow vehicle) and have 30/50 amp service, water and sewer.

We had a back-in site on the north loop that backed right up to the river, about 25 feet behind our rig, with a beautiful view out our windows of the river looking down towards the Gulf. We saw lots of waterfowl and other animals out our window. There are very few trees and nothing to break the wind coming in off the Gulf, so it can be quite blustery at times.

The park offers free Internet, but we couldn't pick it up on the north loop; we heard it was better on the south loop, especially close to the Nature Center. We camped at Matagorda Bay Nature Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Major activity is fishing; there are four fishing piers including one over the Gulf. They rent fishing tackle and kayaks. There is a self-guided kayak trail through the wetlands in the park. Birding is also popular. Nature Center is small and aimed at young children. Closest real shopping (including grocery and gas) is in Bay City, about a 40 minute drive to the north.
