Tonopah RV, Tonopah, Nevada

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

This is about the best RV park on this stretch of Highway 95 between Reno and Las Vegas. It's really nothing more than a gravel/dirt parking lot with hook ups. There is plenty of room between sites and each has a picnic table. There is certainly road noise as the park is right on the highway - but it didn't bother us at all. An adequate place for an overnight on your way through town. We camped at Tonopah RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Bordertown Casino RV Resort, Reno, Nevada

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We liked this park on the far outskirts of Reno (approx. 20 miles from downtown). It is surrounded by desert mountains and terrain and has lots of small trees in the park. It is tidy with lots of grass and gravel, asphalt sites and roadways. The sites are pretty narrow but adequately spaced. Most sites have a small stationery picnic table but I noticed some of the seats have broken off. Our site did not have a picnic table but we were fine with that as we preferred the small concrete patio empty. Our site was too short for our tow but there were nearby parking spaces. Lots of places to walk your dog and an enclosed gravel dog run. A gas station / convenience store is within walking distance and has diesel and propane. If you need propane, be sure to note the special hours they are available to fill tanks. The casino is also just across the parking lot. Small and dingy but with a full-service restaurant and deli. We would stay again. We camped at Bordertown Casino RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Redding RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

It rained for the three nights that we stayed here and my overall impression of the park is one big mud pit. The narrow strips between the sites are dirt, thus mud when it rains. The sites are also narrow with not enough room between for awnings. Our sewer hook up was an arm's length from our neighbor's barbecue grill. The sites are concrete with paved interior roads that are pretty tight. The entire park is on a slope, we were at the top which was level. Not sure if the rest of the park would be affected by the slope as it appears they have terraced the sites to get them as level as possible. Friendly office staff. We would stay again in a pinch, but there are lots of other choices in the area that we will try next time. We camped at Redding RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rising River RV Park, Roseburg, Oregon

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

We will definitely return to this friendly park along the Umpqua River near I-5. The people in the office are some of the nicest we've met. The sites are gravel and quite short but there are ample parking spots nearby for your tow. The inside roadways are paved and easy to maneuver. We loved their fenced, grassy dog run in the center of the park. There is also a nice grassy walking area along the river. The wifi was not bad and the cable tv channels were excellent. You check out a remote control device from the office and tune your tv to channel 4 to access the cable. Propane delivered to your site. Very pleasant. We camped at Rising River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Columbia River RV, Portland, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This rate is based on a month-long stay with a Good Sam discount. We stayed a month this year and also a month last year: not because we love it so much but because it is the easiest to book. Portland RV Parks are cumbersome in the way they charge "monthly" rates. They only have X number of sites eligible for a monthly rate and they are all full. So you must get on a waiting list and hope your name comes up. You also must fill out an application and some require a background check. This is a big, fat hassle for us as we need to get booked due to our big-rig size and can't afford to wait too long. Columbia River does allow you to pay weekly for your monthly stay, which is kind, as they will give NO refunds for any reason whatsoever.

The park is nice and tidy with concrete pads and paved interior roads. The sites are short and tight with a strip of green grass. Patio but no picnic tables. No pool or playground. There are two fenced dog runs at the extreme opposite ends of this largish park, so if you are in the middle (like we were) your dog will never make it to the run to do his business. Which appears to be a big problem in this park as there are many signs throughout the park scolding dog owners about letting their dogs relieve themselves on people's sites. (Which I TOTALLY agree with, but is geographically challenging in this park.) One dog park is dirt (which in Portland usually means "mud") and the other one is mostly grass.

Every morning about 8 a.m. military jets scream overhead and while not a big deal for us, it is good to be aware of when booking. The park is pleasantly located near the Columbia River with an excellent walk / jog / bike path. Also convenient to diesel / propane / restaurants and shopping. While I hope we don't stay here again next year (sigh), we probably will. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Wildhorse Resort and Casino RV Park, Pendleton, Oregon

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

Neat and tidy park at Wildhorse Casino. Surrounded by trees, lots of grassy areas for walking dogs and paved interior roads that are somewhat tight for big rigs. Sites are nice width but on the short side. The south side of the park are asphalt pads while the north side is gravel. Heated pool at RV park and walking distance to casino. The casino is nice size with a movie theater. Wifi is not great. Easy on and off I-84 but far enough to not hear traffic. Would definitely stay again.

Grande Hot Springs Resort (formerly Eagles Hot Lake RV Park), La Grande, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We enjoyed staying at this park which is surrounded by hills and open space - quite nice. The sites were a little close together considering the room they had to work with though. The pool is heated by the nearby hot springs which is nice. The sweet couple that own the property are in the process of installing yurts with nice wooden front porches and private patios with their own hot tubs. One is complete, another is nearly complete and more yurts and cabins with their own bathrooms are in the works for a total of ten once completed. The wifi was EXCELLENT and is divided by area of the park - a different password depending on where you are located. A word of caution upon accessing the park: Our GPS had us exit the first La Grande exit to the east of town and we had to drive a little over two miles on a very pot-holed gravel road. If you exit Highway 203 and drive north, you can turn right on Hot Lake Lane and drive about a half mile instead - and the road is much less rough. Definitely the best way to go. We would stay here again. We camped at Grande Hot Springs Resort (formerly Eagles Hot Lake RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Ambassador RV Resort, Caldwell, Idaho

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

Our nightly rate is based on a monthly rate of $375. This is an excellent park with spacious, well manicured sites/grounds, tidy gravel pads and wide roads throughout the park. We had to fly to Dallas for a couple weeks during our stay and the staff was outstanding about keeping an eye on our rig for us in our absence. The pool is super clean and heated and they kept it open through the end of September, which was nice. The fenced dog park is the nicest we've seen. The park is an easy exit off I-84 but far enough away to have no noise at all. The cable was not great and we actually picked up more and clearer channels using our antenna. Only negative was that there are no picnic tables in the sites they use as monthly sites but there is a concrete patio. We get through this area every year and look forward to spending a month again next fall. We camped at Ambassador RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain View RV Park, Arco, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

I called to reserve our spot four months out & the owner scoffed at me for reserving so far ahead and informed me that if I wanted a confirmation I would need to send an email that I understood his cancellation policy (which is no different than any other park's policy). He took my CC for a guarantee and I immediately sent an email per his instructions. I never heard anything back. A week before we were to arrive I called to confirm since he was so kooky with his rules. He indicated that he DID have our reservation but chided me for not acknowledging his cancellation policy to which I responded that I DID, in fact, send an email and have it saved if he would like me to resend it. He then tells me that you can't send an email but you have to go to his website, locate the tab called "rates", hover your mouse over the tab without clicking it until the word "cancellation" lights up and then click on that and fill in the form. ??? WTHeck?? I said, "Okay, but you have us down, right?" He responded, "For now". I asked exactly what that meant and he chided that I STILL hadn't acknowledged the policy through his website. I did so immediately not wanting to lose our reservation. On the way to the park he again emailed me AND called me to make sure we were coming. I confirmed and he went on to say he wanted to be sure because he had people coming in wanting a space and he had us in one of his best sites. It was only 2 o'clock in the afternoon! Weird?? So ... the park is good - the supposed "best" site has no shade and a huge dirt patch right outside our door - & is certainly the worst of his "best" - lol. They also have a restaurant/café which gets rave reviews but at this point, I think I'll pass. We have only smiled and been pleasant, but we will never be back - too weird. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fairmont RV Park, Anaconda, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is no longer affiliated with Good Sam. We booked before they severed ties so we were extended the GS rate - nice. The park is okay - mostly gravel and a lot of dust. Plus the smoke in the air due to the fires made it just an "okay" experience. It is okay for a night or two but not a "destination" park in my opinion. Our neighbor came over and warned us that they had killed seven mice in traps since they had been there and I saw one under their unit when we were leaving. We never saw a hint of one but we also have two very active year-old pups which may have scared them off. We have watched carefully for signs since leaving and have not seen any - perhaps it was where they were parked & nearby bushes (site 62). We would stay again when passing through. We camped at Fairmont RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Billings KOA, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This has tied for my top favorite park I've ever stayed at in the two years we've been living on the road. Beautifully manicured with pots of overflowing flowers everywhere you look. The best 18 hole RV miniature golf park I've ever seen smack in the middle of the park. They charge $5 per round/per person but when we tried to pay for a second round they wouldn't take our money and said it was on the house - nice. Our site was a premium site with a concrete pad and patio, a beautiful iron swing, steel picnic table, and two benches with a beautiful fire pit (couldn't use it though due to fire ban). Our site was so beautiful I wanted to spend every minute outside - and I did! They also rent pedal cars in various sizes and on the weekend you could barely walk through the park for fear of being run over by a kid on a pedal car or a bicycle. Some might not like that but I loved the festive feel and it quieted down during the week. To clarify our nightly rate - our premium site rate was $80 per night with a KOA 10% discount but we had 50,000 KOA points to use which deducted $100 from our total making it $55 per night. They have a dinner shack that serves breakfast and dinner. We tried the ribeye dinner w corn on the cob, beans, potato salad & Texas toast. Our ribeye was not good and I had to throw half of it away due to gristle and fat but a lady at the pool said hers was excellent - so we would try it again. They also have an ice cream stand every evening where you have a choice of about eight flavors of ice cream cones. Without a doubt, we will be back - a true resort-y vacation feel! We camped at Billings KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Bismarck KOA, Bismarck, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice enough park close to shopping, service stations and restaurants. Sites were adequate, easy to maneuver the roads inside the park and the pool was clean. The dog park was worthless as it was all dirt but there is a nice grassy dog walk along the back of the park. There is a busy road that runs next to the park but we didn't notice traffic noise where we were parked in the middle of the park. While in Bismarck, be sure to make time to walk the paved path that follows the Missouri River for several miles while making its way through several parks - quite nice!

Governors' RV Park and Campground, Casselton, North Dakota

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

This RV park is next to the Days Inn and you register inside the hotel. We pulled in our site (a pull thru) and we pulled forward as far as we could but our stairs still opened up directly across from the back door of the 5th wheel backed in next to us (it was one with two doors and they used the back door to enter/exit). If the park only used their gravel sites as pull thrus there would be plenty of room and I would give it a better rating (and stay here again). BUT, they use the pull thrus appropriately and then back in smaller units on the grass right next to you! No way you could use an awning although there is no place to sit anyway. The positive about this park is you have access to a restaurant, a bar, and a really nice indoor "water park". We did not swim, so I can't vouch for the cleanliness of the pool but they had a lot of really nice water park type slides and splash apparatus. We will not stay here again due to the parking situation. We camped at Governors' RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We really loved this KOA. Gated, nice and roomy and our site #24 was one of the premium end sites and one of the biggest we've had in our two years of living on the road. The pool was nice and clean. There are two dog parks, one is nice and big and grassy for the dogs to run. Nice fire pit and picnic table at our site. The service was nice and friendly and when we ordered pizza at the office they told us to head on back to our RV and they would deliver the pizza since it was about to rain. Nice and close to everything you need - we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

While visiting Bemidji, be sure and walk along the lake downtown starting at the Paul Bunyan Visitor's Center. Its paved and lovely.

Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground, Apple Valley, Minnesota

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

This is a very nice regional park that is super clean. Even the dumpsters are cleaned regularly and they have an excellent recycling program for trash, recyclables and compost and supply separate garbage bags to sort your trash. There are only a few pull through sites and they are excellent sites. Ours was site #58 and I reserved it online on March 1 which is the first date you can reserve sites for the upcoming season. It is as close to being in the woods at a park that we've been with our huge 5th wheel and full hook ups. There was nobody around us. They informed us that this site had some leveling issues but we had no problem leveling. My only problem with the site was that the mosquitoes were horrible. Be sure to bring your DEET this time of the year. The park is close to Mall of America but you feel a million miles away. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
