Lake Pleasant RV Park, Bothell, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

When looking for a park in or around Seattle that is even close to affordable, this was the only choice. It turned out to be a very nice park. Very clean and tidy. All sites are centered around the lake and the landscaping is good so that you feel like you have a little privacy even though the sites are pretty close together. The park is convenient to the highway and shopping. The utilites are all the way to the back of the RV. You'll need plenty of sewer hose. Our site was a little short, but not too bad. There was parking across the street which eased the parking situation. Roads and sites are asphalt with grass and trees between each site. Verizon cell signal was good - we didn't use the wifi. All in all a pretty nice place. We'd stay there again. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cliffside RV Park, Oak Harbor, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This park is awesome! We are in site 34 and have a more than 180 degree view of the water, Olympic National Park, the San Juan Islands, and Vancouver Island. The sunsets are amazing. There is a huge amount of room in between the RVs due to the great layout and the angle of the sites. The laundry room and bathrooms are spotless clean and the whole park is neat and tidy. The camp host/gardener has done a splendid job landscaping and planting flower beds that are so nice. We have traveled the country from end to end and this is our #1 park. The wifi is good - they use the Navy's Gowifi and it is fast enough and very little to no interruptions. The Verizon cell signal is 2 bars with LTE. There is one annoyance, but it isn't the fault of the park. This is a Naval Air Station and they do flight ops every week day. The touch and go's can last until 10:30 at night. Make no mistake about it - they are loud, very loud. Some days are not so bad and some days..... The noise would not keep us away from this park. We will be back hopefully sooner than later. This has been a wonderful month at a spectacular park. We camped at Cliffside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Joint Base Lewis McChord - Northwest Adventure Center, Tacoma, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park. JBLM is a huge military base and has just about everything you would need. The RV Park is great with lots of privacy and space between each site with nature in between. It is clean, quiet, and just plain appealing. There is I-5 road noise but it is a like a constant hum from tires on the road that you don't hear after a while. The utilities are well placed and worked just fine. The roads and sites are asphalt and they are each tucked into their own little space. There is no Wifi. I always take a point off for lack of Wifi. I believe in todays world Wifi should be available - period. You can book at this RV park with complete confidence. We camped at Joint Base Lewis McChord - Northwest Adventure Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Yakima River RV Park, Ellensburg, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We found this RV park to be very nice, clean and quiet (a train once in a while). There is a ton of space between each site, which is SO nice to have because most parks cram you in like sardines. The sites are gravel with patches of (green) grass in between. I say 'green' because it has been so dry everywhere we've been in Washington that 'green' was a pleasant surprise. Utilities were placed well and worked fine. We were parked on the back row next to a pasture of horses and cows. It was very pleasant and relaxing. Wifi even worked pretty good. Although this was a delightful park we felt we were handed pages of rules. All, or most, of these rules are standard and common courtesy, but to have them all written out so that when you look at the page you wonder if you're allowed to sit outside or put your awning out. Of course you are, but the you get the drift. The other thing that was cumbersome was the entry gate. It's one of those gates that you put in a code and sit there for a few minutes while it opens sideways. There are quite a few speed bumps at the entrance where that gate is so don't get caught in it while easing over the speed bumps. The park is out in the country and near a relatively small town. I don't understand the need for this mega security gate that is in the way. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) , Fairchild AFB, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

As mentioned in another post, be ready to have your rig looked at inside and out. They have good security on this base and don't allow large rigs on base that have not been searched. If you don't have anything to hide, this shouldn't be a bother. This is not a resort by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a great place to hang your hat while visiting Spokane and/or passing through the area. It is quiet (near the AFB tarmac, but not bothersome) and clean. The visual isn't great because it has been so painfully dry in the area that there is no grass left. What was there is dead and makes it look really bad. Weather conditions are not the fault of the park or the hosts so I didn't take any points off for that. The Wifi was slow but usable. As a whole the sites are very close together. There are a few that have a little more space and we were lucky enough to get a wider site, which was very comfortable. We would stay there again. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Wallace RV Park , Wallace, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Wallace, ID is a wonderful little town. Wallace RV Park is a great little park. It is small but clean, neat, quaint and friendly (with a GREAT restaurant on the property). We were on site 14 (30 on the site map) and, because of its angle, we had plenty of room on our social side and backed up to a really pretty babbling brook. The utilities were good, but no wifi. Our only complaint about the park was that parking your RV can be a challenge. If the park is full or close to full you don't have room to swing and negotiate the elements of backing in. One day in particular we had to move our truck 4 times to give others enough room to park. We didn't mind the moving, but you should know you might have to knock on a door and ask someone to move their vehicle. The park is within walking distance to town and the town is SO worth seeing. We camped at Wallace RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rocky Mountain Hi RV Park & Campground, Kalispell, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Nice RV park. We were parked on the back row so we had a great view of the pasture behind the park with the backdrop of the mountains leading to Glacier National Park. The park is neat and clean but a little crowded. There is a section for the smaller RVs, and then the larger ones. There appears to be some seasonal campers, but it wasn't junky at all. The roads and sites are gravel with grass in between - dusty. It was extremely dry while we were there so everything was brownish. Our sewer hookup was up out of the ground about 5 or 6 inches so we had to jack up our 5th wheel so we had drainage. Otherwise the utilities were fine. They offer wifi and there was a repeater right next to our site. However, the choice of the park's wifi never came up in my computer. Kalispell is nice city and has just about anything you might need. It's a thriving town and the gateway to a beautiful national park. We camped at Rocky Mountain Hi RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Harrison RV Park (Military FamCamp), Fort William Henry Harrison, MT, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Although the sites were terribly close together, and they installed 50 amp in the small sites and 30 amp in the larger sites, and there is an island built up with curbs in between each site that houses the sewer hookup (making the sewer hookup higher than the RV's connection) I have to say the park is comfortable. The park host is immaculate in his upkeep. As soon as an RV pulls out, he checks the site for any grass or weeds that might have come up through the gravel then he rakes the island and the gravel the where the RV parks. There is no trash, no junk, nothing unsightly at all. There is no wifi. The utilities are fine (power went out once and they had to change out the big 200 amp breaker, but they took care of it within a few hours). A word about the utilities: The park was originally set up to park social side to social side making the utilities on wrong sides, etc. However, when you go there to park, the host has you park in a normal fashion so you have to run electric under your rig (or other utilities). Even though there are quite a few negatives, the park host does an outstanding job keeping it neat, clean and comfortable. We would go back. We camped at Fort Harrison RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Valley View RV Park, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

The views of the surrounding mountains is breathtaking! Even though it is about 15 miles from the entrance to Yellowstone, it really isn't inconvenient. The utilities worked fine. All that being said, the ambiance of this park is sorely lacking. As we were being led in to our site on the back row, the fellow in the golf cart took us behind the building and in front of the front row of RVs. There was all sorts of yard equipment and what-not scattered behind the building that made it look very junky. As we got to the road at the very rear of the park, there was property behind the park (not hidden in any way) that was junked up and very unsightly. In consideration of the surrounding beauty the unkempt atmosphere was an unpleasant surprise. The sites are all pull through but, in our section, they were straight on instead of slanted. Hard to get in to because they aren't very long and almost impossible to get out of. The internal roads are too small to allow for the wide swing to avoid posts, trees, other RVs, etc. We had to back our RV on to the road behind us at a 90 degree angle to get out. $60 is a ridiculous amount to charge for this park, but they can get it because of their proximity to Yellowstone. We won't be back. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Grandview Campground & RV Park, Hardin, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We are grateful to this campground as we had some truck trouble and traveling with another couple and their rig. Grandview was kind enough to squeeze us in for a couple of nights while we got the truck fixed. The sites are roomy and utilities were good and well located. The park was clean and the staff were very nice and helpful. We have no complaints and would recommend this park on your way through Montana. We camped at Grandview Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch, Big Timber, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This park was a pleasant surprise. Very clean, neat, well laid out park. Not to mention beautiful. There are several trout ponds that have wonderfully clean, clear water and trout that are at least 14 to 18 inches long. It also sits on a river that is very picturesque. There are big trees throughout and the park, as a whole, is comfortable and roomy. All the utilities were fine - we didn't even try the wifi so we can't comment. I think our only negative is the road approaching the park. When you turn off of the main road you enter a single lane (smaller than single lane) dirt/gravel road for about a quarter mile. The problem is if you were to meet up with another RV coming the other way there would be big problems. Otherwise, this is a great park and highly recommended. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Whoever laid out this park knew what they were doing. All sites are pull throughs and and angled in such a way that each RV is able to take advantage of the beautiful vista. The park is tiered up a hill yet the sites are are level and long. There is adequate space between each RV so it does not feel crowded at all. Roads and sites are gravel with grassy areas in between. Very nice park. Wifi was good and strong (the repeater was right next to our site). All utilities worked just fine and they are also laid out well so you don't need an abundance of hose or pipe, etc. Our only complaint about this park was that it is miles from anything; 5 miles from Little Big Horn and a gas station, had to go further for diesel. 20 miles from the nearest grocery store, and 7 miles from the nearest restaurant. There is a gravel road getting to the park that had some wash boarding. Not too bad, but be aware. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Sky Camp and RV Park, Miles City, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a clean, well kept park. The sites are very long so there is plenty of room for rig and other vehicle. The sites are gravel and grass and in good shape. WiFi was okay, utilities were okay (only 30 amp). Our complaint is the parking in the sites is social side to social side and close together (awnings touching). It feels like your space is being invaded and you're invading someone else's space. I hated it! I can see it if you've come with some friends and want to spend as much time together as possible - but not with strangers. We camped at Big Sky Camp and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ellsworth AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp), Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park. The park is in a wagon wheel layout which gives each RV plenty of room. There is sun and shade, very clean restrooms and laundry rooms, and the grounds are kept up and mowed regularly. The roads are paved and the pads are concrete. All utilities worked fine. The park is set near 2 of the base gates - convenient; and the base isn't so far out of town that it is inconvenient. Our only complaint was the wifi was too slow - we used our hotspot. Otherwise, very nice! We camped at Ellsworth AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Just a quaint little RV Park on 385 N in Chadron, NE. It was clean, neat, quiet and a great place to hang our hat for the night while passing through. The roads and sites are gravel with grass between. Looked like all sites were pull-through with a post in the center. We would stay there again. Chadron appeared to be a pretty little town in a very scenic part of western Nebraska. We camped at Eagle's Rest RV Park & Camping in a Fifth Wheel.
