Indian Waters RV Resort & Cottages, Indio, California

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Large, well-maintained park with 252 FHU RV spaces and 8 cottages. Most RV sites are back-ins, but there are 15 pull throughs. Sites are grass or gravel with side by side concrete pads for your rig and tow vehicle and a sitting area in between (pull through sites don't have a separate tow vehicle pad). Perimeter sites back up to a residential neighborhood and can be noisy (i.e. loud music, barking dogs, etc). We stayed in site 251, an interior premium gravel site with a level concrete pad. Several types of sites are available at this park (see photos), which vary in pricing. Interior roads are paved, wide and easy to navigate. No picnic tables or fire rings provided. Gated entrance/exit, and check-in packet was waiting for us outside the gate when we arrived at noon. The office was only open from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and closed on Sunday, but I believe they have expanded hours during peak season. No store, but the office sells hats, t-shirts, ice, drinks and ice cream. There is a large building on one side of the park with showers, restrooms and laundry (8 washers and 6 dryers) which was cleaned daily. The park also has 8 newly remodeled private shower/toilet combinations near the office as well as another laundry area. There are small trees on the property, but the park is mostly open with no shade. Park has great amenities including two large pools, two large hot tubs (one not working, staff said someone stole the heater), several dog parks, clubhouse, billiard room, fitness center, horseshoes, pickleball courts and large outdoor seating area with fire pits. The park is next to an ambulance/fire/police station next door, so there are sirens going off intermittently. Expect occasional noise from a nearby train. Daily trash pick-up at your site. Utilities worked well but were placed at the rear of the site. No cable provided, but plenty of OTA channels. Verizon service was very good. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would return. We camped at Indian Waters RV Resort & Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

Rancho Jurupa Park, Riverside, California

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Large park with two separate camping loops. Lakeside loop is older (and slightly cheaper), with sites very close together on a dirt/gravel surface with tight, bumpy gravel interior roads. This loop is a mix of back-in and pull through (all "buddy" type) RV sites and tent camping sites. Cottonwood loop is for RVs only and spacious with FHU concrete sites and wide, paved interior roads that are easy to navigate (and is the best loop for big rigs). Sites here are a mix of back-in, pull through and pull ins. We stayed in site 216, a back-in which was VERY long and level. Park entrance is gated with code provided for after-hours access. Different code given for restrooms and laundry area. Newer bathhouse had two private handicapped bathrooms with toilet and shower (one out of order), a separate toilet area for each gender, and a separate shower area for each gender. All were cleaned daily. Laundry area had 5 washers and dryers ($1.00 per wash/dry) but required non-refundable tokens to use due to prior vandalism (and the park advises to keep everything locked up due to theft in the area). Park has a small splash pad (open Easter through Labor Day), 2 playgrounds, mini golf ($5 per person and the nicest we've ever seen), plus two stocked fishing lakes. Verizon service was good. No cable provided and only a handful of over the air channels. Park has a well-stocked store with gifts, snacks, ice, RV supplies and beer. They allow you to wash your RV at your site. Park does not allow mail/packages to be delivered. There are LOTS of ants here, so come prepared with spray and keep an eye on your jacks. Some noise from the nearby local airport and a train, but not bad. Free wifi offered but we didn't use. No restrictions on age of RVs here. No propane sold on site. Staff were friendly and made regular patrols through the campground. We loved this park and wouldn't hesitate to stay again! We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Several grocery stores and Walmart within a few miles. Traffic around the area is terrible! Campgroundviews.com shows every campsite which we used to book our site. We purchased propane at a U-Haul dealer about 4 miles away, but the price was $3.42 per gallon. We also spent an afternoon at the San Manuel casino (which is HUGE!), about 30 minutes away.

Wine Country RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful, well maintained park with about two dozen very nice park models for rent, and roughly 175 RV sites (all FHU with cable) with back-in, pull through and pull in sites. Sites vary widely, so look at the park map before booking. Economy sites back up to Highway 46, so expect road noise. Most of the pull throughs have a "buddy" site configuration with rigs parked end to end. Sites 58 through 91 back up to the wine vineyard next door, but they are on a fairly steep hill. Sites 151-156 and 10-11 are on a cliff. Standard and economy sites are dirt, while premium and deluxe sites are concrete. All sites are very close together, so there isn't much privacy and slides impede on your neighbor's sitting area. We stayed in site 23, a deluxe back-in site that was level but short, leaving us little room to park our tow dually. Interior roads are paved but narrow, so you may encounter difficulty getting in/out of your space trying to dodge parked vehicles (we had to move our truck several times). The amenities are fabulous...a pool, two hot tubs (one adult only), outdoor bar with free wine tasting on Fridays, stage area with live music, two clubhouses, dog run, playground and nice arcade area for the kids. Weekends are busy, but the park quiets down during the week. Utilities worked well but are placed in the back of the sites. Two large bathhouses with 4 toilets and 3 showers each, which were kept reasonably clean. Verizon service was very good. Free wifi but we didn't use. The park is next to an airport so there is intermittent airplane noise. Staff were friendly and helpful. Also, the park is conveniently located across the street (and within walking distance) to a water park. We enjoyed our stay and would return. Daily rate reflects 20% off for first time guests. We camped at Wine Country RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Hearst Castle is an hour's drive from the park. If you buy tickets online, they charge $8 extra per person, per tour. We opted to buy tickets at the Castle instead and had no issues getting the tours/times we wanted, but we also went mid-morning on a Monday. There are many, many wineries in the area with either free or 2 for 1 tastings. The park also has a shuttle for $50 per person that stops at 3-4 different wineries.

Lemon Cove Village RV Park, Lemon Cove, California

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

Small, rustic park with a mix of 30/50 amp FHU back-in/pull through sites and 5 RV sites with no hookups on one side of the park and tent camping sites on the other. Interior roads are gravel and easy to navigate, although trees could use a good trimming. Sites have decent separation, are gravel and wide but vary in levelness, so you may need leveling blocks. The park is very dusty and dry, and the only areas with green grass are the dog park and office area. Nice pool on opposite side of the park. Bathrooms were older and reasonably clean, with 3 toilets and 3 showers per gender. Laundry area on site with 3 washers and dryers (1 out of order during our stay). Office area is decent with small selection of gifts, snacks, ice and RV supplies. The office, laundry and bathrooms are located on a hill which may pose a problem for those that cannot navigate stairs or an incline. There is a port-a-potty in the RV section however. I agree with previous reviewer's posts regarding electrical issues, as six sites including our own (we were in site 10) lost power on Sunday. Maintenance reset the main breaker within 30 minutes, but voltage was low (113 volts in our rig). However, we had no issues before or after this incident and we were there a whole week. Staff were friendly and helpful. Park was very quiet during our stay even over Labor Day weekend and the park was nearly full. No cable available and we were only able to pull in 8 OTA channels. Good Verizon service. Free wifi provided but we didn't use. Park does not enforce their rule about dogs being on a leash. Daily rate is with Good Sam discount, but still expensive for what you get. Overall, a good park to use as a base for exploring Sequoia National Park. We camped at Lemon Cove Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is about 30 minutes from the Ash Mountain entrance of Sequoia National Park and is also a designated pick up location for the Sequoia Shuttle if you prefer not to drive. The shuttle only runs from late May to early September and costs $15 per person, which includes the national park entrance fee.

The Lakes RV & Golf Resort, Chowchilla, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Medium size park with 87 FHU sites (cable included) which are a mix of back-ins and pull throughs as well as a storage area for rv's. Interior roads are paved and easy to navigate. Sites are all concrete but quite narrow, with a small concrete patio. There are some sites with broken/uneven concrete especially in the pull through sites. Most sites do not have a picnic table. Sites 1 through 10 and 51 through 56 back up to Robertson road, so there is significant road noise. The remainder of the sites on the perimeter backup to a residential neighborhood. We stayed in site 6, a back-in site which was mostly level, but short so we had to strategically park our tow dually sideways to fit (see photos). The park has nice landscaping, but around the sites what's left of the grass is brown and dead. There are sprinkler heads all around, but some are broken and/or not functioning (the site next to us had standing water from some sort of leak). Water pressure was on the low side at 40 psi. We were told at check-in to fill our fresh water tank because the park loses water pressure during peak times (we had no issues, but the park wasn't full). Small but maintained pool and spa, and they have set hours for adults only which we appreciate. There is a nice lake next to the pool area where you can fish although it is catch and release only. The park is gated, and they give you a remote to operate it. The park also gives a key card to access the bathrooms and laundry area. Bathroom/shower area was clean and well appointed. Laundry area consisted of three washers and dryers. Utilities worked well but are placed toward the rear of the sites (sewer took 3 hoses to reach). Good Verizon signal. Daily garbage pickup at your site. The park offers two free rounds of golf daily in the price, but for those that don't golf, you can get a 10% Good Sam discount instead. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Durango RV Resort, Red Bluff, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park consisting of 172 FHU RV spaces with cable and picnic table. Sites are a mix of back-in and pull throughs, nicely situated with pretty landscaping all around. Interior roads are asphalt and easy to navigate. Sites are all concrete and wide, with grass in between. Some sites have a view of the Sacramento river, but there is no direct river access. We stayed in site 141, a long, mostly level pull through site which was spacious enough for our 40' fifth wheel and tow dually. This park has a large pool, hot tub, several outdoor gas firepits, horseshoes, basketball court, putting greens, exercise room and they even have massage services! Nice office with small selection of gifts, snacks, ice and rv supplies. Restrooms were well kept and cleaned daily. Two laundry areas on site. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was good. Daily garbage pick-up at your site. The park is located close to I-5 so there is quite a bit of road noise. You will also hear the horns from a nearby train during the night which can be very loud! There is a walking trail that leads out of the park (the only area not gated), but there is a homeless encampment there so be aware. However, the park is patrolled regularly. We enjoyed our stay and would most definitely return. We camped at Durango RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a grocery store within walking distance from the park. Walmart is just a few miles away. We spent an afternoon at Rolling Hills casino which was 15 minutes south of the park. Lots of smoke from the nearby Carr fire and our vehicle/trailer was covered in ash. Go to the Sugar Shack café on Main street. Their breakfast plates are HUGE and delicious!

McCloud RV Resort, McCloud, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Pretty park with a mix of back-in, pull through, cabins and tent sites. RV sites are 50 amp and 30 amp with FHU and cable, and some 30 amp sites with water/electric only. All sites are extremely close together. Most sites are on grass without markings making site perimeter unclear. Some of the smaller sites have concrete pads. Site 79 is the only gravel site. There are a few sites that can be challenging to back into due to trees. Ask to see your site before paying, as there are no refunds given. Also, the park charges $5 for early check-in, so be aware of that. Interior roads are paved. Grass sites are watered as soon as someone leaves which makes for a wet, muddy mess for the next camper that arrives (and no mats or rugs are allowed on the grass). We stayed in site 78, a long, grassy, semi-level back-in site close to the office. Trees at the back of our site gave us plenty of shade all afternoon. Our neighbor's awning was inches from our slide outs, which was too close for comfort for us. Lots of tall trees and greenery, but no amenities here. No store on site, but they do sell ice. Dump station, garbage area, laundry area and bathrooms are all located in a central building. Bathrooms were rustic (and could use an update) with two toilets and two showers per gender. Husband said one of the toilets leaked water all over the floor. Laundry area had 4 washers and 6 dryers (1 out of order), with change machine and soap/softener vending machine. The ponds in the park were overgrown with weeds and stagnant. A narrow babbling brook runs through the property. This park has a dog curfew (they must be inside your camper from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.). Highway 89 runs next to the park, so there is quite a bit of road noise. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was good. Free wifi offered but we didn't use. Rate includes Good Sam discount, taxes and fees. Overall, a decent park but I doubt we would stay again. We camped at McCloud RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Waterwheel RV Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Small campground with 33 rv spaces, which are a mix of pull throughs and back-ins. The majority of the sites are 30 amps, but there are 9 sites with 50 amp service. There are only 10 sites that are FHU. We stayed in site 1, a 50 amp water/electric site (no sewer) that faced the river. Our site wasn't very level, but doable. Interior roads are gravel and a bit tight for big rigs. Sites are also gravel, but very narrow and very close together. Quite a few trees which really need a good trimming. The campground has a strange configuration which is not the most user friendly. Be careful when following the "enter" sign around the curve to the office, as you will have to swing wide enough to turn in FRONT of the office to get into the campground. Look at the map on their website before arriving. Nice log cabin office with very little necessities (ice cream, dish soap, toothpaste, etc. but most of the shelves were empty). Bathrooms are newer and beautifully done, consisting of two toilets and two showers per gender. Laundry area also very nice with 2 washers and 2 dryers which worked well ($1.50 per wash and $1.00 per dry). Utilities worked well but water pressure was low at 35 psi. Zero OTA channels and no cable available. Verizon signal was excellent. Free wifi provided, but we didn't use. Some highway noise, but we didn't find it objectionable. The park is next to the Williamson river and they have their own boat launch. The river is quite shallow however, with lots of rocks so not ideal for swimming. Overall, we liked this park and would return. We camped at Waterwheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Smaller campground with 60+ campsites which are a mix of FHU RV sites and tent sites tucked into two loops. We reserved site B10 and, although it was long enough, we could not maneuver into the site with our 40' fifth wheel and tow dually. Several trees at the front of our site and avoiding the connections of the pull through site across from us (connections were near the road) made backing into the site impossible. The trees also had low hanging branches which would have scratched our rig. This site is better suited for smaller rigs. We were unable to get a different site as the park was full, but the park ranger tried very hard to accommodate us. In the end, we were able to get a full refund which was much appreciated! The roads and sites are paved but very narrow so take care if you are in a big rig. Also, the road entering the park is quite jarring, so go slow. Sites are very close together. Dump station on site. As others mentioned, our site had a sewer connection bent at a 90 degree angle, so not sure how that would have worked since we never hooked up. LOTS of chipmunks/ground squirrels everywhere, and most campers had the hoods raised on their vehicles (I guess to deter them from getting in there?). This appears to be a nice park, but we won't book here again as it is just too challenging for a rig our size. We camped at Collier Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Armitage Park , Eugene, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Small campground consisting of 32 FHU RV sites with cable, 2 group camping and 8 tent sites. RV sites are a mix of back-in and pull throughs, nicely paved and spacious with a picnic table and fire ring. Interior roads are paved and easy to navigate, although a bit narrow. All of the sites are accessed by a one-way loop, and we had no issues backing into our site (#32) with our 40' fifth wheel and tow dually. The entrance to the park diverts you through a parking area before arriving at the camp office. As others have mentioned, the office has strange hours, especially since they are closed 2-4 p.m. but check-in is 2 p.m. or later. We arrived at 1:30 and had no issues checking in, but we also had reservations. No information (i.e. map, cable channel list, etc.) was provided at check-in except the bathroom/laundry area code, which we were told not to disclose to anyone who asked. Presumably to prevent homeless people from accessing the facilities. The park has a day use area and our site was the closest to the parking area. We noticed one guy parked there every single day and stayed in his vehicle (in 100 degree temperatures!) until they closed the gate at dusk and he left. Some sketchy people rode bikes and skateboards through the campground, which put us on alert to lock our bay doors and not leave anything out (read previous reviewer's posts). First park we have stayed at that gave us an uneasy feeling, which is sad because this is a nice park. There is also has a boat launch and you can easily access the McKenzie river to fish, float or swim. Lots of blackberry bushes and you can pick as many as you want. Bathroom/laundry area is newer, with 4 private unisex toilet/shower combinations and 3 washers and dryers. All were kept clean. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was fair to good. Free wifi provided was slow. Ice and firewood sold at the campground office. Although this is a great park, we would probably not stay here again. We camped at Armitage Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Columbia Riverfront RV Park, Woodland, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park consisting of 76 sites with gorgeous views of the Columbia River. Sites are all gravel and a mix of back-in, pull-in and pull throughs with a picnic table. All sites are FHU with 30 and 50 amp service on a shared pedestal, but this can be problematic when you back-in and your neighbor pulls in. If they are already using the plug you need, then you will have to get an extension from the office to reach the pedestal on the other side. However, the office is mindful about this when you reserve, just let them know what you need. We stayed in site 11, a level riverfront site with great views and a large tree at the back of the site which gave us wonderful shade all afternoon (most sites are in the open with no shade). Interior roads are paved and easy to navigate. Bathrooms were clean and consisted of 3 toilets and 2 showers. Laundry area had 6 washers and 8 dryers (we didn't use). The grounds are large, well-manicured and watered every day. Good beach access for swimming, fishing or kayaking. Office area was nice with a small selection of necessities such as milk, eggs, snacks, beer/wine, etc. They also have DVD's you can check out for free. Propane sold on site. Pool area was nice (open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) but is locked so you have to request to use it. Ditto for the upper viewing deck. As others have stated, there are a lot of rules so make sure to read them on their website before booking. We didn't have any issues during our stay as previous reviewers mentioned, but we also travel without children or pets. We found staff to be nice and informative. They even asked upon check-in if we had Good Sam before asking for payment. Good utilities and they were well-placed. Verizon signal was fair to good. Free secured wifi worked well but slowed considerably when the park was full. 48 cable channels included in price. We really enjoyed our stay in this park and would most definitely return! We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mounthaven Resort, Ashford, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Small, rustic park located just outside the Nisqually entrance to Mount Rainier. There are 17 rv sites, several cabins and a few tent sites. The park is nestled in the trees giving it a tranquil, woodsy feel. RV sites are all back-in, full hookup, and a mix of 20 and 30 amp sites. Interior roads are gravel and tight, with no place to turn around once you're in. All sites are packed dirt/gravel, with a picnic table and rock fire pit in the ground. We stayed in site 12, a long, double wide site (although not exactly level) which is the best site if you are in a big rig. We had no issues backing into our site with a 40' fifth wheel and tow dually. Sites vary in levelness, so you may need leveling blocks. The park is easy to miss, so keep a watchful eye out for it (read previous reviewer's post), and it's situated on a curve (this also makes it harder to pull out when leaving). The entrance is extremely narrow coming into the park, so keep that in mind when turning in off the road. The park is very quiet, but there is some noise from the neighboring road (it didn't bother us). Utilities worked well, and Verizon signal was poor. Zero OTA channels. We used the free wifi which was good but slowed when the park was full. The term "resort" is a misnomer, as there are no amenities here. There's a small building with a seating area, one private unisex bathroom, one private unisex shower, and one washer and dryer. All were functional and reasonably clean, but there is a strong musty odor that permeates the entire building. Having only one bathroom was the biggest issue here in my opinion, as there was almost always a wait to use it. Playground consisted of two baby swings and a teeter-totter. No store, ice or propane on site. Staff were helpful and informative. Daily rate includes taxes and fees, no discounts offered. We enjoyed this park and would return. We camped at Mounthaven Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Check the live webcams on the NPS website before you go to see if Mount Rainier is visible (there's usually cloud cover) and to check the visitor's center parking lot (it fills up quickly). It's best to go early in the morning on a weekday and avoid on the weekend (bumper to bumper traffic past the rv park entrance on Saturday). There's a small convenience store about 5 miles away which has ice, snacks, etc. and sells gas, diesel and propane.

Silver Cove Resort, Silverlake, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Large, well maintained park consisting of 159 sites which are a mix of back-in, pull through and cottages. Sites are double wide and comprised of gravel, but the gravel is very thick (not packed down) and a mix of small and huge rocks, making the sites unlevel and difficult to walk on. We stayed in site 48, a pull through site with a picnic table. Utilities worked well but were placed at the rear of the site (sewer took 3 hoses to reach). Most if not all sites are in the open with no shade, and temperatures were in the 90's while we were there so it was very hot! 60+ cable channels included in price. Verizon service was poor. We used the free wifi, which worked well only when the park wasn't full. Interior roads are paved, and the loops are narrow but doable. There are multiple curbs in the park that will need care to navigate around (one roundabout, one at the main road entrance and one at the entrance/exit gate). Signage to the park was good. The park has small canals running through it and you can rent boats (no motor), kayaks and pedalboats to use. You can fish in them as well, but it might be tricky with the lily pads growing in the canals. There's plenty of green space near the canals but watch your step as there is a LOT of poop from the geese that graze there. The park has a very nice pavilion and lodge which appeared to be brand new. There is also a boat launch on site. Office has a small selection of snacks, drinks and fishing gear. Staff were the friendliest we have seen anywhere! Very welcoming and informative. The park hosted a "s'mores party" on Saturday, complete with two campfires and games. Several bathroom areas within the park. The one closest to us had two private bathrooms (1 per gender) which consisted of two toilets and a shower, so at times there was a short wait to use them. They were kept clean and were well appointed. We enjoyed our stay and would return. We camped at Silver Cove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The closest grocery store is Cascade Market (small but functional) 9 miles away in Castle Rock. The nearest Walmart is 23 miles south in Longview. Mount St. Helens is less than an hour from the park which is a must see.

Olde Stone Village RV Park, McMinnville, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Very pretty park comprised of manufactured/park model homes on one side with a 70 space rv park on the other. Sites are concrete, double wide and level, and are a mix of back-in or pull through with FHU. We stayed in site 230, a back-in site with a nice picnic table that converts to two benches. Sites are close together, but are roomy enough to not make it feel cramped. Interior roads are paved and easy to navigate, and sites are easy to get in/out of. The park is nicely landscaped and extremely well maintained. Amenities include a heated pool (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), sports court, playground and dog walk area. Office area is nice, but there is no store or propane available. They have newspapers and vending machines on site. Bathroom and laundry area is centrally located in the park, which has a seating area and place to hookup your laptop. There are four private toilet/shower combinations (two per gender), but oddly, they are accessed from the laundry area. Toilets take several attempts to flush and twice we had to use the plungers as they didn't flush at all. Bathrooms were cleaned daily, but when someone takes a shower it leaves standing water on the floor so take care. Laundry area had 3 washers and 3 dryers (one out of order). Utilities worked well but are placed toward the rear (it took us 3 sewer hoses to reach) and Verizon service was excellent. They allow you to wash your rv here, which we did, but water pressure was on the low side at 35 psi. 60 channels of cable included in the price. The park is adjacent to the Evergreen Aviation Museum and there is a concrete walkway from the park to it. The museum also offers a shuttle service for campers staying at the park. The pool was nice, but sure wish they had a set time for just the adults to enjoy it! During our stay, there was a strong smell of manure from one of the nearby farms. Regardless, we enjoyed our time here and would return. We camped at Olde Stone Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Walmart is about 15 minutes away, as well as a Safeway grocery store. Lots of wineries in the area. We spent an afternoon at the Spirit Mountain Casino which was 30 minutes away.

Sea Perch RV Resort, Yachats, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

Small, but very well maintained RV park located directly on Sea Rose Beach. All sites are concrete, level, double wide, with the option to back-in or pull-in depending on your type of rig. There are 29 sites here, and 2 are camp host sites. Sites 1-9 are oceanfront with unobstructed views and farthest from the highway. Sites 15-29 are in the middle with a limited view of the ocean (RV sites are parallel to each other). Sites 11-14 have a good ocean view but are VERY close to the highway and are tight to get in/out of so keep that in mind when booking.

We stayed in site 14, which we backed into (we have a 5th wheel), but our utility connections were on the wrong side, so we had to run connections underneath the rig. Most sites have a shared pedestal that works for either back-in or pull-in. The view and easy beach access is what makes this park special (and you pay a premium for it!). Utilities worked well but we had no usable cell service. The park does provide secured wifi which worked great! If you need to make a call, they have a private "phone room" where you can make calls (even long distance!) for free.

The park has a very nice clubhouse with sitting areas, pool table, foosball and kitchen, along with two private bathroom/showers (one per gender) and one unisex bathroom. Bathrooms were clean, well-appointed and nicely decorated, but could use better lighting. Staff and campground hosts were nice and helpful. On Saturdays, the owners have a community dinner for their guests in the clubhouse, which was a great way to meet other campers in the park! A dozen cable channels were included in the price, but we found most to be fuzzy/grainy. Office area is nice, and they have a small selection of beer/wine and apparel for sale. We enjoyed our stay and would return if we could get one of the beachfront sites. We camped at Sea Perch RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Devil's Churn and Thor's Well are very close to the park and best seen at high tide. Thor's Well is not clearly marked from the road but is part of Cook's Chasm so park there and take the hike down. Go up to Cape Perpetua, which is the highest point in the area for great views of the ocean.

Yachats is about 6 miles north with a few restaurants, but they have no gas/diesel available there. We drove south to Florence (about 18 miles) to get diesel and bought groceries at Fred Meyer.
