Sportsman's Club Campground, Joshua Tree, California

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great find mere minutes from josha tree national park entrance. It isnt a typical rv park, and it is a well kept secret for quiet rv and tent camping near hwy 62 and joshua tree at $25 a nite. Spaces are quite large, with full hook ups and 30amp service. There is a clean shower house recently renovated w strongest water pressure Ive had in 10 years and on demand hot water. A couple nites a week the bar opens for bingo nite and a large closed sheltered pavillion w lights and fans makes for an unusual rv park perk. The pavillion has bbq grill and would be a perfect place to take refuge from winds and rain while camping. Some sites have fire rings and picnic tables. This is a clean, quiet, safe budget friendly place that people haven't discovered yet. Call to reserve as there isnt an on duty camp host. We camped at Sportsman's Club Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park, Ashland, Oregon

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

This is a state park and was such an excellent value for $30 a nite full hookup. I didn't have a reservation, but there were many cancellations and open spots (likely due to the wildfires and excessive heat). The views of the lake were wonderful, even with only mile visibility from the distant wildfire smoke. My dogs and I could walk a long asphalt loop several times a day for good exercise. We tried a trail leading from the end of the campground, but the sticker-laden ground cover made it miserable for the smaller dogs. The "beach" near the campground had a kind of 1" burr everywhere resulting in carrying the dogs out of the plant zone back to the rocks--so not good for dogs. But kayakers and canoers seemed very happy. The bathroom shower were great. Spacious, private, copious hotwater, well-lit. If only other (private) parks could model these. The power was good, no surging even with everyone using AC because of heat (100+) The camp hosts were friendly as was the gate guard. I'm a californian who is so impressed with my first taste of OR state parks! Can't wait to come back when the smoke dies down and one can see the surrounding hills. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Selmac Resort, Selma, Oregon

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

If you keyword "Oregon RV park" and "pot" more than 10 articles will pop on this being (the first?) pot-friendly RV park. If I'd have seen this, I would have looked elsewhere. But the RV parks in Southern Oregon have been full up. In this particular RV park, a local pot cultivator bought up much of the occupancy for his field workers. So, other than one nice 5th-wheel, all the RVs have long since expired shelf-lives, held together by duct tape and prayer, with a lot of clutter that would do an Appalachian hillbilly proud. Clothing piles, tire rims, random kids bikes and other litter on the camp site. Some RV sites are a crowded mash of RVs and smaller tents around it. The trash can left out in front of one of the cabins had 20-30 flies circling, overflowing with pizza boxes, boxes of beer cans and other detritus on the ground. When I got to my site, a very old pedestal hinted at what lay beneath. In 18 months on the road its the only time I had to take a broom to the thickly encrusted cobwebs inside before plugging in. If it werent for the very long trip to get here on tight turning roads and a long detour, I'd have left. I came because of their wkly rate (187.) and low day rate which was quoted at 24.50, but the new manager apologized that it was 35 nightly for a full hook up, 30.54 for a partial (water/elect). The rate quoted on the phone was for tents . This is also a family friendly park and there were lots of small kids playing. Across the main road--yards really--is the lake which is stocked for Bass fishing, but kids and families were happily playing in the water. If you r looking for a "secluded" small RV park that you can smoke pot in, then you may like this. But if not, I'd steer clear. I was too uncomfortable leaving my modest rig in a place with such evident poverty to go exploring the area. The CG has a dump, but they need your plate number. Apparently, the area has a problem with meth cookers dumping toxic chemical waste at RV places so they monitor this activity. We camped at Lake Selmac Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is construction of a new bridge and road outside the park, hence the detour. But you can walk along the shore which is nice. I spotted a doe and two fawns drinking at the lake.

Esmeralda RV Park and Campground, Dyer, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

If you are looking for quiet, and a view to die for-of the 2nd tallest range in the U.S., the little known, hidden White Mountain Range-then this is the place. But you have to like and appreciate remote too. For it is 56 miles to Big Pine, and 72 miles major shopping in Bishop CA and you have to go over the Whites to get there. What this park has that no other park in the region has is thick cottonwood trees providing complete canopy of half the sites and half canopy over the others-imperative in the heat of summer. This canopy really cools the interior of RVs by as much as 15 degrees. They have great cute cabins and large travel trailers for rent too which the scientists love apparently. The park is modern, newish (12 years old or so), and is kept pristine as the White range that dominates the scenery. The shower house has two nice showers and 2 bathrooms and that are aging relatively well and kept immaculate. Spaces are spacious; no shoehorning into a cramped space, & come with picnic tables. Lots of places to walk the dogs and no fees or limitations on dogs (other than the usual...leashes etc). Wifi is good unless park gets busy, and then it slows. Laundry facilities are the only major ding. A facility across street, one creaky dryer, 3 aging washers. Surrounding are velvet green fields of alfalfa as this is a primarily a ranching community. So you have the snow caps of the Whites (yes, even in late June this year), the blue skies, no pollution, and a darkness at nite that would make astronomers weep. Mustangs dot the hills and in spring, wildflowers! Off roaders are periodic visitors since the off-roading out here is little known but fabulous, so everyone here has a quad or side-by-side. Scientists are frequent visitors to study this fascinating area. The RV park is owned by same owners of the Minimart/gas station next door, so check in there with the friendly ladies. Also check out the adjacent little historical display of old west. We camped at Esmeralda RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are several old historic mining sites that arn't on the tourist maps (and thank god) but require 4WD or at least high clearance vehicles to check out (see Red Rock Mine and the B&B mine about 20 miles north near Trail Canyon off Chaitovich Cyn). The Sump is also really fun visit (high clearance vehicle) about 25 miles north. The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Nat'l Forest is at the top of the White Mountains. Many of these trees were ancient when the pyramids of Egypt were being built.

Sunrise RV Park, Kingman, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Great customer service over phone and in-person. Check in was easy after a long drive and arriving after dark. What you should know: its maybe 20 feet from the interstate, so really loud. AC and a fan dampened it slightly, but I eventually had to take a sleeping pill--trucks were engine braking and it felt like I was underneath them. I was in spot 2 which is the row closest to the highway. Maybe other rows were quieter--ask for those instead. There are 4 showers/bathrooms, unisex. 2 are being remodeled. They look great and are secure. A nice overnite stop, but I wouldn't stay here long term for the noise. We camped at Sunrise RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
