Olive Street RV Resort, Vista, California

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We have found California RV parks, particularly in coastal areas to be a very poor value compared to other western states. But everything in California is more expensive, and you would have to expect to pay more in locations with proximity to beaches and coast. This place is no exception. Way over priced relative to what you get, but if you're going to stay in southern California, you gotta pay up. we paid just more than $850 for a 3-week stay. The Good: Front desk staff was friendly and helpful, main building/club house very clean and bright, small pool/spa (we did not use). We did not use bathroom facilities, so cannot comment on them. The bad: Sites are severely out of level, broken landscape sprinklers in random sites cause mud holes, tight parking for tow vehicles, NO REFUND policy, lot's of rules and many are not uniformly enforced.

It took 3 attempts plus a trip to lumber yard and Camping World to find the appropriate materials to get our coach level and find a way to get in and out the front door. Plus the twisting and stress on coach chassis. We inquired about cutting our stay short and was advised no refunds would be given.

We would not stay here again, nor recommend it to anyone in a motor home. The sites are just too un-level; I'm guessing most have a 6% - 7% slope to them. We camped at Olive Street RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Dockweiler RV Park, Playa del Rey, California

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here while visiting family in Los Angeles. This place is a great value for the location. Close to freeway (105/405) which makes getting to other points of interest easy (notwithstanding LA's horrible traffic). We have family in Santa Monica and getting there on side roads was easy. For the money (all RV parks in California are spendy relative to other states) hard to see how this place could be beat.

The good: Level paved access and parking, gate guarded, night-time security, directly on the beach, beautiful sunsets, bike path. The bad: LAX. RV park is directly under the departure vector and it is NOISY. About only quiet period is 1:30 - 4:40 AM. So bring your ear plugs. Parking for TOAD was not available next to coach, but not bad as we could park it less than 50 yards away. Other reviews mention odor from treatment plant across Playa Vista road. We did not experience anything. Note that the spots for motor homes are pull in as opposed to back in, but parking was easy enough and hook-ups easy. This park does get crowded on weekends. But during weekdays about 2/3 full and pleasant.

Staff was pleasant, and helpful. Office is open 8am - 8pm. Several restaurants deliver to park! Overall, we were very pleased with our stay here. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bakersfield River Run RV Park, Bakersfield, California

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

We stayed here in mid-November 2016. The park is very convenient to the 99 freeway and downtown Bakersfield. Also close to major shopping, i.e., Target, Walmart, grocery stores, etc. Wide, paved interior roads. Well-compacted gravel parking pads with concrete patio (but curiously no picnic table). The sites are sort of close together, but there is sufficient grassy buffer/landscaping. We camped at Bakersfield River Run RV Park in a Motorhome.

Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA, Visalia, California

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in early November and based our visits to Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks from this KOA. Fairly typical KOA, although this one did have quite a few long-term or "permanent" residents. Adequate gravel interior roads, adequate gravel pull-thru parking space. We've stayed in better and stayed in worse, which is why we rated it average. FYI, California RV parks all have higher than average nightly rates.

There maybe RV parks closer to the national parks, but for our size rig this was a better choice. Be aware that this is in the central valley and with all the agricultural operations going on you will have hazy skies and sometimes an odor unique to this big ag/dairy producing region. Bear in mind Fresno, just 30 miles or so north, is one of most air polluted cities in USA. It was obvious to us as we couldn't see the towering Sierra mountain range just 40 miles east of town. Downtown Visalia is charming. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Premier RV Resorts of Redding , Redding, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a few days as we explored near-by Lassen Volcanic National Park, Mount Shasta, Lake Shasta and visiting friends in the area. This is a very nice park, but expensive by our standards (although about par for California). Nice paved interior roads, level paved pads, attentive staff. We camped at Premier RV Resorts of Redding in a Motorhome.

Mad River Rapids RV Park, Arcata, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park on north end of Aracata, California. Looks to us that this park is about 50/50 long-term/full-time residents vs. RVers on shorther-term rentals. The park has nice paved interior roads and sites were paved also. Park was pretty well maintained. We had a back-in spot, no real room to park our TOAD, but there was parking in designated spots very close to our RV, i.e, within 100'. We camped at Mad River Rapids RV Park in a Motorhome.

We used this park as a base camp for day trips into the southern sections of Redwoods National Park, the coast and Eureka, CA. Plenty to do in this area. Would definitely recommend this park if you're visiting this part of northern California.

Crescent City / Redwoods KOA, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Not the best KOA we have stayed in, but not the worst either. Setting is very nice. Overall facilities are average. We are somewhat spoiled I guess, prefer RV parks with paved interior roads and wide, level sites. This place has neither. We camped at Crescent City / Redwoods KOA in a Motorhome.

Armitage Park , Eugene, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a couple of nights in between service appointments on our coach in Eugene, Oregon area. We spent most of October 2016 traveling in Oregon, and must say that their state and county park systems are outstanding. If your rig will fit, I would encourage you to seek out these parks as an alternative to conventional RV parks.

This particular park had fully paved access and individual sites were paved as well. Very spacious, plenty of room between sites. Full hookups. and even wifi and cable, which worked flawlessly...hard to believe that was available in a county park. Grounds were well maintained and clean. We did not use their facilities, so we cannot comment on that, but showers and laundry were available. Park has very large, fenced dog park which our travel companion loved. Nice walking trail along McKenzie River within park boundaries. We camped at Armitage Park in a Motorhome.

Five Peaks RV Park, Joseph, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Joseph Oregon is one of the most beautiful small towns we have ever visited. And being a small town, well off the "beaten track" rv park choices are few and far between.

This place is a gem. Just a block off the main street, which is home to coffee shops, brew pubs, restaurants, galleries, etc, this park also boasts a spectucalur view of the Wallowa mountains which tower over the town.

The park is very small: 6 or 7 spots depending on how they configure overflow. Clean, gravel level back-in sites configured in a "horse-shoe around a pretty flower Garden and the owner's home. No bath facilities are available, so you must be self-contained. Full hookups and cable tv are available at each site. We camped at Five Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nugget RV Park, St. Regis, Montana

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

We stopped for an over night stay here in route to Spokane. Beautiful setting just east of exit 33 from I-90 in St Regis, MT. Very well maintained gravel interior roads; graded perfectly, no ruts or pot holes. Swimming pool and modest gift store. We did not use any of the facilities, but based on my impression of the rest of the park, I would bey that they would be clean and tidy. We camped at Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fairmont RV Park, Anaconda, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We initially planed to stay just a couple of nights to walk over to soak at the pools at Fairmont Hot Springs. We extended our stay to a full week as we found the park readily accessible to Butte, Anaconda and other day trips. (i.e., route 1 loop up thru Phillipsburg.)

It looks like the park is undergoing some renovation, a new outdoor patio area looks new.

We stayed in loop at NE section of park. Sites were close together, but didn't feel overly crowded. Very long back in sites in this section, against seldom used tent sites. Our site must have been 100' long. Sites in other section of park were closer together and more crowded.

Staff was pleasant, facilities were clean and orderly. I would stay here again if I could get a spot in loop on NE side....extra long back ins. We camped at Fairmont RV Park in a Motorhome.
