Hoh Rain Forest, Forks, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Fall camping at the Hoh is awesome. The road in is 18 miles of twists and turns and one place has a washout, so drive safely and don't be in a hurry. Loop A is where you will find the most sun and Loop B, lots of shade and trees. (Loop A bathroom was closed due to needing repairs) Didn't check out Loop C. This is an older campground so sites are not built for long RVs and while we saw folks trying to squeeze into them, would suggest if your rig is over 34' that you come in and spend the day and then camp elsewhere. There is RV parking at the visitors center. BTW, if it sounds like someone is throwing rocks at your rig, its just the wind knocking the pine cones off the trees. I went looking for a fight after about the 3rd "rock" had hit us, and when I saw it was nothing more than pine cones, I had to laugh at myself. The little squirrels will quickly clean them up for you after giving you the what for. Very quiet otherwise. We camped at Hoh Rain Forest in a Motorhome.

Make sure you hike one of the two trails. The area gets 12 feet of rain a year so bring a rain coat as your odds are really good you'll see some rain.

Salt Creek Recreation Area, Port Angeles, Washington

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

Salt Creek is a popular campground and the utility sites are wide, sunny and have great views of the Sound. Check with the ranger or host before choosing a site as the water wasn't working in a couple of them while we were there. The dry area is beautiful, with a couple deer meandering around. but the sites are short and some are not close to level. We camped at Salt Creek Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Scenic Beach State Park, Seabeck, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Folks tethered to electricity and full utility sites are really missing some great camp sites. Scenic Beach offers private, shaded sites that you just can't find other places. Each site is surrounded by tall trees, and an understory of bushes, so you can hardly see or hear your neighbors. It is above Hood Canal, with an equal number of back in and pull thru sites, but as it's in the hills, not all the sites are level. There is a dump site. Also, if you don't have reservations, you need to pay at the entrance which is quite a hike. Even though its an extra $8. I would recommend reservations just for that reason alone. There are a few trails and a small beach within walking distance. I want to go back in May when the rhododendron are in bloom. It must be spectacular. We camped at Scenic Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Dungeness Recreation Area Campground, Sequim, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

While dry camping, it is a great place to spend a few days. The sites are mostly level, private and shady. The second loop is for folks with reservations, but sites are just as nice at the first come, first serve loop. Lots of the sites are long enough for the longest of rigs, but some have some low slung branches. Space 8 would be my choice, as its sunny and right on the rim trail. We camped at Dungeness Recreation Area Campground in a Motorhome.

La Wis Wis Campground USFS, Packwood, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Spent the first weekend of June here and it was maybe half full. This is an old, dry campground and spaces in A thru G are short, tight and close together, with tall trees and little room for anything longer than a van. Saying that, there are exceptions and did see some trailers and RVs under 30 foot squeezed in, but nothing for longer RVs.

Loop H is where we were, and it has more room for the longer RVs and where you would want to be if you need solar. The spaces are not pull thru, but wide spots in the road where you can park and the tables are tucked back into the woods.

Sites 12 -15 are sort of together so would be good for large groups, and 13 is actually a multi family site with 2 tables but not a lot of room for tents. (Ground is rocky so bring pads to sleep on.)

Toilets are pit and the water was shut off when we were here, but available in loop A. Fee station is on Loop A, so pick your site and then go an pay. Reserved sites are well marked. We camped at La Wis Wis Campground USFS in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Packwood has a small museum, and a couple of restaurants. (Understand the Italian one is the best.)

You can dump at the private RV park for a fee, and get gas but like all towns high in the mountains, its not cheap. Also a small grocery store has most supplies you might have forgotten. The nearest free dump is on I-5 North before you get to Olympia. It looks like it also has potable water.

Deschutes River State Recreation Area, Wasco, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

In November they close the bathrooms and turn off the water so all that is available is the electricity and dump and a porta potty But its a nice park, nice walking trails along the river. The trains always whistle as they go by, which is odd as didn't see any crossings, but its a nice sound and doesn't bother us at all. We camped at Deschutes River State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

If you are heading south on Hwy 97 through Oregon, go to Biggs (5 miles to the east) and top off your gas tank. There is no gas until Madras Oregon which is 94 miles away. Its a long worrisome drive if your getting close to empty.

La Pine State Park, La Pine, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The only section that was open (Nov 2, 3) was the south section and I found the sites to be nicely spaced. We were greeted by an angry chipmunk who let us know that we were parking in his space and he wasn't happy about it. Shower could have been hotter and bathroom could have been warmer. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.

Klamath Falls KOA, Klamath Falls, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Seems to be a great half way point to Reno so lots of snowbird travelers By evening the place was fairly full. Showers space was tight and with a little rickety stool there wasn't much room to dry off and dress. I like hot showers and the water wasn't hot enough for me. But saying that, the staff was friendly, there were plenty of washers and dryers, you could get propane there and the well stocked store was nice. We camped at Klamath Falls KOA in a Motorhome.

Devil's Lake RV Park, Lincoln City, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Great park, easy to find, right in town. The problem is that as it has rained just about every day we were on the road, the drainage in this park was pretty bad and many of the sites were flooded. If you have reservations, you don't know if your site will be one of them. I suspect that in the summer they might have a big mosquito problem. We camped at Devil's Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Valley of the Rogue State Park, Gold Hill, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

In October there are a lot of snowbirds stopping at the Valley of the Rogue for an overnight, but even on the weekend, it never completely filled up. If you want a pull through site, you might want to get there by at least late afternoon as some of the sites are not level and will not accommodate long loads and they do fill up. Walking trails were paved and nice. Views of the mountains were wonderful. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Taidnapam Park, Glenoma, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Hovering between and 8 and a 9. Our site was perfect, open above for our solar panel, pull-through, and level. There are also sites that were so shaded, you could barely see the rigs parked there and those would have been great also. BUT it was during the week and after Labor Day. I'm sure summer weekends are crowded and I would certainly get reservations for those times. The signage to find the park is great, the road in is narrow but doable. We had no cell phone service but we knew that going in and didn't care in the least. We were in the loop sections, Sites 1-50. The other section, by the lake. is more parking lot like, not particularly private. Bathrooms were clean and inspected often. Nice playground for the kids. I would also get reservations if you have a larger rig as some of the sites wouldn't fit a 45'. We camped at Taidnapam Park in a Motorhome.

Jim Creek Wilderness Recreation Area (Military FamCamp), Arlington, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

I would give Jim Creek a 10+ if the WiFi had worked, but we were here for a week and it never worked even at the office. They said the weather had something to do with it, which must mean "a cloud" since we had 3 glorious days. Also, we were not able to get TMobile/AT&T cell to give us more than Emergency Service only, but I understand that Verizon does work. Saying that, Jim Creek is a must do. Sites are wide and deep and level, with electricity and water. (Dump is available on the way out.) Bathrooms are handicapped, but the toilet is metal and will take your breath away in cold weather. Each room has a hot and free shower. Also there is a laundry available for a buck. Staff is wonderful, helpful and lots of fun. Small museum tells the story of the base. Kids have lots to do: playgrounds, games, fields, bike rentals. Pets also have runs. Don't have an RV, lots of wonderful tent sites and cabins with wood burning stoves and porch swings are all over the base. Trails to hike. The lake is about 5 miles away, by trail or road. (RVs and Motorcycles are not allowed on the road as it is narrow.) Once your at the lake, kayaks and paddle boats are available. Make sure you know where you are going as there are no signs pointing the way. After the Dead End sign, you will come to the gate which is manned 24 hours a day. It is open all year long. We camped at Jim Creek Wilderness Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Pacific Beach Resort and Conference Center (Military FamCamp), Pacific Beach, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Our first time. Sites are wide and well laid out. Cable TV worked well and the office also loans out DVDs so we had lots of entertainment. On the north side of the campground there is a gate to go down to the beach, its really steep going. If you walk out the south entrance and into town, the way is longer but not as steep. Beach is really clean because tons of folks are going down picking up the trash that might have come from Japan. What they are going to do with it, I have no idea, but its nice they are cleaning the beaches up so well. LOL Nice restaurant in the office, serves breakfast, lunch or brunch and dinner. Town has a grocery store that is really expensive so if you can shop in Aberdeen before you come, do so. We camped at Pacific Beach Resort and Conference Center (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Crescent Beach & RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Staff is wonderful, friendly, and helpful, but this park needs some rethinking. The pads are not well laid out, and someone needs to go out with you and show you where to park. Dump is old and antiquated, and WI-FI is slow. I really believe they cater to daily surfers, not RVs, and the full page list of rules and regulations and the need to wear a wristband while on the beach attest to that. Cell phones pick up Canada, so if you use it, you will be charged international rates. (We were told if you go to the east end of the park, you can pick up US. Open all year. Forewarning. If you are coming from the west side of the Peninsula and your GPS tells you to take Beach Road, just east of Lake Crescent, Beach Road is only one lane wide and 25 MPH. We were lucky; we only met one car that managed to get around us because we wouldn't have been able to back up. Trucks are not allowed, but we didn't see any warning signs and no place to turn around. We would probably return. We camped at Crescent Beach & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quileute Oceanside Resort, La Push, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

The best thing going for this "resort" is that you can watch the waves from your front window. But it is downhill after that. The sites are dirt, rock, and mud. Electricity and dump were okay, but the water leaked. No WI-FI and no cable, and your cell phones won't work. They do have a small store and propane, but for any shopping you would probably have to go to Forks, about 15 miles from La Push. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Does have a nice beach, mostly rocky and lots of driftwood. Saw both surfers and folks surf fishing. We camped at Quileute Oceanside Resort in a Motorhome.
