Kingsland Slab RV Camp, Kingsland, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is situated on 750 feet of the Llano River on the "slab" The slab is a granite outcropping over which the river flows. It has many interesting features and is very popular with the locals. On a summer day there can be hundreds of people parking and wading/swimming the river just steps from the campsite. The campsite is a beautiful piece of property and is well laid out; however, in dire need of some TLC. The roads are essentially dirt and compacted granite. There is a good bit of erosion on many sites due to recent rains and a number of sites are in bad shape and in need of leveling and weed clearing. There appear to be a number of full timers with loads of junk outside their campers despite the park rules stating the sites must be kept clear of trash and clutter. There is also a junk storage lot in the park with every type of broken or otherwise useless machinery scattered about. As you enter the park you are greeted by a broken down auto with a broken windshield and tow straps still attached. Not the welcome we were anticipating. For the price, $40 per night, the park is bare bones with the exception of water, electric and sewer. There are no restrooms, showers, cable or wifi. Given the rate structure, this park appears more appealing to full timers, $40 per night versus $440 for the month. The park is pet friendly; however, many of the full timers allow their dogs to run loose, despite the rules stating all dogs must be on leash. This made it difficult for us with our leashed dogs having the loose dogs running about. Also, doubt there is any dog droppings being picked up from all these loose dogs, so watch your step. We camped at Kingsland Slab RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

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

As others have mentioned this is a converted KOA park complete with the small KOA type cabins. The park is next to the Snake River; however, there is no access from the park to the river, in fact you can not even see it from the park. We got a pull-through site on the end of the row and it had a nice grassy area. However, many of the sites, particularly the back-ins, are extremely close together; many have no picnic table or other amenities. It is a bit unusual but the park's website does not have a park layout map or at least I could not find one. I am attaching a photo of the map. To avoid extreme congestion I would pay the extra $7 per night and get a pull-through with a little extra space. The park personnel are extremely helpful and the maintenance staff is constantly working on irrigating the grassy areas which is a real task with no in-ground irrigation system and the heat that Idaho Falls gets in the summer. Given the circumstances I think they do a great job. Located in Idaho Falls, the park is typically not a destination stay so the daily turnover is large. One potential issue is the park has over 30 tent sites that are packed tight as sardines. Although there were not a ton of tenters while we were there it could be an issue. Would not want to be staying in the park August 21 for the total eclipse. Facilities are well kept and they have a nice little store in the office. Wi-Fi worked in the morning after everyone cleared out, totally useless when park is full, which is typical to every park I have stayed at lately. Good AT&T and Verizon service for both voice and data. One pet peeve, the dog area is full of dog poop. I see many people not picking up after their dogs, which is disgusting. Must be something about the area because there is a very large, fenced dog park about a mile away that is also full of dog poop. Some pet owners are really jerks. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Idaho Falls in the downtown area. Super Walmart for supplies, also a Camping World nearby. Not really a destination.

Orchard Hill RV Park, Kelowna, British Columbia

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

What a hidden gem. Just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Kelowna, this small park is actually a working farm. There are both back-in and pull-throughs. The sites are long and wide and have good plant screening between the sites. The owners are super nice people and a wealth of information about the area. With the rain and cooler temps, we were a couple of weeks early for fruit and veggie harvests. The park typically has a great list of farm grown stuff available. Will have to come back just for that. The park has great views of the surrounding valley and minutes from the lake. Would definitely revisit. We camped at Orchard Hill RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spring Creek RV Campground, Canmore, Alberta

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

First the good, the park is located next to a flowing creek and surrounded by majestic peaks on all sides. It is only minutes from the town of Canmore. We arrived for a five night stay with a full service pull through site reserved. The site we were assigned was at the end of a row that butted up against a falling down fence that separated us from a row of mobile homes, most in some state of disrepair. We were at the back end of the mobile homes so got to view their trash heaps and broken down trampolines and other junk. There was also an extreme slope towards the fence. We went back to the office and asked for an alternate site and were assigned a back-in that was next to the creek. The sites are extremely narrow and not at all adequate for a motorhome. The sites are so short in most cases that tow vehicles are parked parallel to the street blocking part of the road. The end of my patio shade was inches from the slide out of my neighbor. The park is also very low in spots and floods with any rain shower creating a very deep mess that stretches completely across the road. The narrow area between our rig and the neighbors is under water at the moment. There are many, many mobile homes sprinkled all through the park. Many of the permanent residents drive at very high speeds through the park creating a dangerous situation for children and pets on a leash. Wifi consists of a hotspot in the office and is useless. There is no cable available. All in all the incredible views are offset by the numerous mobile homes and extremely crowded park. Will look elsewhere in the future. Would not return. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Elwha Dam RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice RV park located very close to the Hurricane Ridge entrance to Olympic National Park. The park has a very eclectic layout with something for every type of traveler. We stayed in a long pull through with our rig that accommodated the 40' RV and our auto. Utilities are well laid out and worked without issue. The wi-fi was a bit hit or miss depending on the number of others accessing it. Owner's are super helpful and a wealth of information about the area. Great access to everything that is Olympic National Park and the Elwha River area. Port Angeles is just a few miles away and has excellent restaurants and shops if you want a diversion. We camped at Elwha Dam RV Park in a Motorhome.
