South Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

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

This wasn't one of our favorite state parks. It's in a great location and that was the part we did like, but what we didn't like is how crowded and noisy it is and how close the sites are together. We are used to having some sort of privacy at state parks, with trees and space, but this park was not like that. The sites are really close together and there was constant noise and activity all day long. Our site (B13) was right on the main road which may have contributed to the noise level, there were vehicles, bikes, and people constantly going by the campsite. I imagine it may not be like that during the off season, but summer was not the best time to be there for us since we prefer a lot more space and privacy. The paved trails that lead to the beach are very nice, and the paved South Jetty trail was also great for biking. We rode our bikes down to the Rogue Brewery for a tour and dinner one evening which was really fun. This park really is in a great location if you can overlook the constant noise and activity around the campground. Also, Verizon worked very well there. We camped at South Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails - Bend/Sunriver, Bend, Oregon

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

We are not always fans of Thousand Trails campgrounds, but this one is great! We typically like state parks with large and private sites. This TT park is more like a state park than an RV park and we had a great site that was large and private like we normally get at a state park. The park has nice amenities like tubing down the Little Deschutes river. It's also in a great location for visiting Sunriver and Bend. There is so much to do in this area, I wish we could have stayed longer. Verizon and AT&T both worked very well at this campground. The only downside is no sewer hookups at the campsites. We camped at Thousand Trails - Bend/Sunriver in a Fifth Wheel.

Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is kind of out of the way, there is not much to do very close by and not many stores nearby either. But it is a wonderful place to get away from busier areas. The sites are large and wooded. We have a 41 foot 5th wheel and had plenty of room at our site (B3). Our site backed up to a river and we were able to launch a kayak right from there. There was also a trail behind our site that went along the river to the Visitor Center and Logging Museum which is worth a visit. We went to the Klamath & Western Railroad for the free train rides on Saturday which our kids loved. We also visited Crater Lake from here which was about 45 minutes away. Verizon 4G was a little slow at first, but we put up our booster and then had a decent signal. AT&T was very weak and not usable most of the time. Our site had full hookups which was great. The only downside were the mosquitoes. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely be back if we are ever in the area again. We camped at Collier Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bullards Beach State Park, Bandon, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

After staying at several over-crowded RV parks in CA this was a refreshing change of pace. We love state parks and the privacy we get at the sites compared to RV parks. We were in site B37 at Bullards Beach and it was very woodsy and private. Of course woodsy means mosquitoes, but I still appreciated the seclusion. We were close to the path to the beach which is a 3/4 mile hike. This park is in a beautiful location and even has a lighthouse! We also loved visiting the town of Bandon. The roads around the campground are tight and can be tricky with a big rig, but we were able to do it with a 41 ft 5th wheel. Verizon and AT&T both worked well. We camped at Bullards Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Klamath River RV Park, Klamath, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great location for visiting Redwoods National Park and Klamath. It's also only about a 30 minute drive to Crescent City. The river sites have beautiful views. The sites are very close together if the park is full, but thankfully they space out the RVs if they're not full. So the sites on either side of us were empty giving us a little bit of breathing room. The check-in process was easy and the hosts are very friendly. I didn't expect to have any cell coverage there, but Verizon actually worked with 3G and with a booster we had 1 or 2 bars of 4G. The only reason I don't give this place 5 stars is because of the "kid tax". That is what our community of fulltime RV families call it when a park charges extra for kids. This park charges $4 per day per child. We have 2 kids so we had to pay $8 extra per day. For a family that has more than 2 kids this could get very expensive. It seems unfair to charge extra for our kids that stay in our RV. There are certain parks that we don't mind paying extra for kids if the park has kid-friendly amenities like a bounce pad, playground, mini-golf, etc. However, this park has no amenities for kids so I don't think they should be charging extra for kids. We camped at Klamath River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Napa Valley Expo RV Park, Napa, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice and clean park and the camp host is very friendly. We usually like to stay at state parks and campgrounds where we have some privacy between sites, but this is more of a typical RV park with no privacy between sites. It was pretty much the only option though for visiting the Napa area. The location was great! Walking distance to Oxbow Market, close to the Napa wineries and not far from Sonoma. Close to Six Flags in Vallejo and Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield. Verizon and AT&T worked very well. We camped at Napa Valley Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails - San Benito Preserve, Paicines, California

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

It seems to be hit or miss with Thousand Trails properties; you never know what it will be like. A lot of the experience depends on the site you get. Towing our 41 ft. house around a property we are not familiar with while trying to find a suitable site can be stressful. We were thankful for the employee that gave us some suggestions and ended up recommending just the right site for us. This is a large resort and there are many sites to choose from, but most are out in the open with no shade and very close to neighbors. We prefer a site with some shade and a decent amount of separation from our neighbor so we don't feel crowded. That can be hard to find, but thankfully we found a site like that here. The site we had was a 30 amp full hookup. With the shade we got along just fine with only 30 amp. They charge $5 extra per night for 50 amp. Verizon 4G worked well, but AT&T does not work at all. There was a section way in the back of the park that Verizon didn't work at all. This park is out in the middle of nowhere; there is not much to do in the area, but it's a nice place to relax if that's what you're looking for. The park will allow you to receive UPS and FedEx packages there; USPS does not deliver to the park. The employees were nice and friendly; we enjoyed our stay and would come back to this TT park if we're in the area again. We camped at Thousand Trails - San Benito Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

The town of Hollister is only about 20-30 minutes away. Since I travel fulltime it can be hard to find a place to get my hair cut and colored on the road. I went to Attitudes and Images Salon in Hollister and saw Sandra who did a great job on my hair. We also visited Pinnacles National Park which was only about 30 minutes away.

Santa Cruz Monterey Bay KOA, Watsonville, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $125.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was very expensive and not what we would normally pay for an RV park. But it was in the area we wanted to visit and we decided to splurge on a nice place. Other than the outrageous cost, the park is awesome! We had a site with a private deck in the back which was a really nice place to sit outside and relax. This campground has so many wonderful amenities for children including a very nice playground, a bounce pad that was my kids' favorite, a climbing wall, mini golf and numerous activities scheduled for kids each day. The campground is immaculate! Every site and area of the park is so clean and well kept. The pool was under construction while we were there, but it was too cold to swim at that time anyway. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The park was jammed full of people on the weekend, but during the week we had almost the whole place to ourselves. We are full time RVers and I appreciated that they let me have mail and packages delivered there. Verizon and AT&T 4G worked very well which we need since we work remotely. The location is perfect for visiting Santa Cruz and Monterey. We would love to stay there again, just wish it wasn't quite so expensive. We camped at Santa Cruz Monterey Bay KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails, Groveland, California

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

We have a Thousand Trails zone pass and stayed here for free. The reason we have a zone pass and not one of the more expensive memberships is because we're not particularly impressed with the quality of Thousand Trails campgrounds. Most are pretty run down and don't appear to be well kept. We also find it stressful after a long drive to have to find a first-come first-served site that will work for us. The zone pass helps spread out the costs of other campgrounds so we can stay some place nicer for half the month and stay free or cheap at a TT park for the rest of the month. Anyway, with that said, each TT park is different and some are nicer than others. The main thing that this park has going for it is it's close proximity to Yosemite. It's only 5 miles from the entrance and made it a very convenient place to stay while visiting Yosemite. The park itself is okay. Many sites were unavailable due to recent flooding and electric not working. The playground was falling apart and not open. Mini golf was very worn out. The lodge is pretty nice and WiFi worked well in the lodge. There is zero cellular coverage at this campground. You can drive about 5 miles down the road towards Groveland and get a usable Verizon signal, and inside Yosemite Valley there is a great Verizon 4G signal, but don't expect to be able to use Verizon at all inside the campground, even with a booster, it does not work. The staff is very friendly and we enjoyed our stay, we would stay here again to visit Yosemite. We camped at Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

Hidden View Campground, Raymond, California

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

We stayed here for a few nights before heading to Yosemite. We had a site by the water which was beautiful. We only had electric at our site, but there was a water spigot close by that we were able to use to refill our fresh water tank by connecting two hoses to reach the spigot. Verizon 4G worked well at our site, but it was only 3G in some sections of the park. It seemed like the sites by the water had the best signal. The staff was very friendly. When we checked in we could not fit in the site I had selected online so they let us pick any other available site. Since we were there on weekdays there were plenty of open sites to choose from. Very beautiful and peaceful location to relax for a few days. We camped at Hidden View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lemon Cove Village RV Park, Lemon Cove, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here to visit Sequoia National Park. It's about 30 minutes to the entrance, and this park was in a great location. It is very easy to get to for a big rig. We work remotely from the road and need internet to work during the week, and Verizon coverage worked well here. The lady that works at the office was very friendly. The campground is very pretty and well kept and has a nice pool. My only complaint and the reason I can't give it a perfect rating is because of the "kid tax". That's what our community of Fulltime Families call the extra charge for kids. This campground charges $3/day per child! We stayed 8 nights and we have 2 kids so that added up to an extra $48 for our stay. Sometimes I can understand the kid tax at a campground that has lots of amenities specifically for children, but this campground has nothing for children, not even a playground. In fact, it is more dog-friendly than kid-friendly. They have a very nice dog park and they don't even charge extra for dogs! So all of you traveling with dogs and not kids you are in luck. But for those of us traveling with kids, this place is overpriced for what you get. I really don't understand what the extra charge for kids was even for considering there are no extra amenities for kids. And our kids sleep in our RV that we bring with us in our bedding that we bring with us. Our 2 kids did not add any extra work for the campground like we would at a hotel, but even a hotel doesn't charge extra to bring them with us. It seems pretty senseless to me. We camped at Lemon Cove Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

This is probably one of the nicest RV parks in the Vegas area. The park is very clean and pretty. They have a family-friendly pool and an adult only pool. It's very close and convenient to everything in Vegas. What I didn't like is that the sites are SO close together. It's a typical RV park that likes to squash everyone in like sardines. You have zero privacy at this park, and it's also a noisy area day and night. We use our A/C fan overnight so the noise didn't bother us. Verizon coverage worked very well here, but the park wifi did not. We camped at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground, Bryce Canyon, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second time staying here. It was a lot cheaper this time as it was the off season and they had a good discount, but normally it's pretty expensive. We have a 41 ft 5th wheel and stay in the large RV lot in the back. The sites are very generously sized, and we loved the changes they made since last time. The sites now have a raised grassy area with fire pit and picnic table. It's wide open like a parking lot, but still nice because the sites are so large. Verizon 4G works pretty well and the park wifi is also not bad. In our opinion this is the best place to stay while visiting Bryce Canyon because it's as close as you can get to the entrance and even has a shuttle bus stop right on site. The shuttle bus wasn't running yet when we were there in April, but it was when we stayed there 2 years ago in the summer. It was very convenient to be able to ride the shuttle into Bryce right from the campground. I would recommend buying all your groceries before you get here. There is no place nearby to shop at. Ruby's has a grocery store where you can pick up items you may have forgotten but everything at Ruby's is overpriced so it's better to bring what you need before you get there. We camped at Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wahweap RV and Campground, Page, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This is such a beautiful campground! The views of Lake Powell are stunning. Our first time here was in the summer of 2015 and it was about 105 degrees. We cut our time short to find cooler temperatures because it's just too hard to keep the RV cool enough in that kind of heat. The resort was kind enough to refund the remainder of our stay. We knew we would want to come back again at a cooler time of year and March turned out to be a great time. It was definitely cooler and also much less crowded because it's still the off season. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our site A3 was a large pull-through with beautiful views of the lake. We work remotely and need internet access where ever we are. Our Verizon 4G worked okay; it was pretty slow but still usable. We camped at Wahweap RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
