Aurora RV Park and Marina, Nice, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

I found this place out on the Good Sam search and it got some recent good reviews saying the couple that bought the resort were actively working to renovate the whole place. We chose a site that backs up to the lake with a gorgeous view. The weirdness starts here. There was only one other site occupied. As I looked around, more and more stuff did not add up. There were a multitude of partially started projects that abruptly ended, like flood debris was raked into many little piles with the rakes leaning against a tree. A very green fish tank was sitting in the communal picnic area by the lake outside with barely visible large, fancy fish inside. Sites were not swept clean and the recycling bins were full. The office was a mess and full of construction materials, but no sign of recent work. We found a dumpster in the other section of the resort and it was piled several feet above the top. The wifi didn't work, nor the cable. The weirdest, most unsettling, issue for me about this place, was in spite of several "private property" signs, there was a man fishing directly in front of our site until at least 1:45 - 3:30 AM(I was checking regularly). I was scarred and wanted to leave! We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Yakima Sportsman State Park, Yakima, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at this park many times over the last 15 years and it is a favorite lunch stop when traveling through the area.

I recommend the circular, full hookup, backin sites. They are paved, fairly level and much more space between the sites than the pull through sites. These sites back up to a wild life area featuring a mountain bike trail and miles of level foot trails through trees and brush. The campground also features a pretty pond with a short trail going around it, lots of birds and pond turtles. Within a mile of the SP entrance, you can access miles of paved bike trails that go in each direction stretching from Union Gap to Fruitvale or Selah depending on your route.

I find the staff very nice and accommodating. The bathrooms are typical of a state park and cleaned daily. My only complaint is the last 2 years of visiting this park we've encountered several homeless people here. One actually parked a really old van next to us in a vacant site around 11:00 at night then left early the next day, I expect to avoid paying. We've never had any issues and they have a right to use the park too, but Yakima is known to be a bit rough so I've been more wary about leaving personal stuff out and locking the trailer door even for a short walk. We camped at Yakima Sportsman State Park in a Travel Trailer.
