Ashley Inn, Tillamook, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

It cost $28 to stay. $24.95 plus tax. The park is nice enough. Nice concrete pads to park on. Spaces are a little tight. The poor rating is the full sheet of rules they require you to initial and sign that state you will be required to leave if you violate the rules. The most irritating rule is about the trash receptacle. RVers must not use the large dumpster behind the concrete block enclosure. We must use the small residential trash container. Not sure how all the RVs are supposed to have room for even the small amount of trash we have. The bin was full. I went to the office, and they said to just toss the trash in the big dumpster. Go figure! We only came here because of the 97 degree heat for today. I think this is a record high temp for June if not most all of the summer for Tillamook. We had been parked at the City operated park with dry camping but opted to come here rather than run our generator in the heat. We camped at Ashley Inn in a Motorhome.

Port of Tillamook RV Park, Tillamook, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

We stay here every time we come to Tillamook, which is just about every year and sometimes twice a year.

This is a nice quiet CG. No facilities except for 2-3 water spigots. Good level gravel parking pads. Most have picnic tables and a fire pit. In mid to late August there are lot of ripe wild blackberries to pick. We camped at Port of Tillamook RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you like oysters, drive about 10 miles north of the camp to Bay City to the Pacific Seafood company and restaurant. Look for the building sticking out in the bay in Bay City. Reasonable prices. On Wednesdays they have an all you want to eat oyster special for $14. You can observe the workers shucking the oysters behind glass walls.

Bully Creek Reservoir, Vale, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

The terrible rating for this review is the lack of warnings about the dangerous levels of arsenic in the drinking water. The only warnings are letters posted on the bathroom doors. No warnings on any water faucets or the fresh water fill station at the dump. As we were leaving in the morning I was topping off my fresh water tank and another camper told me about the high arsenic levels. On the way out I did stop and suggested to park manager they should hand out a small slip of paper with a brief notice about the water, but she did not seem to feel that was necessary. Other than the drinking water problem I would give the park an 8 or 9. Very nice, clean and neat campground. We camped at Bully Creek Reservoir in a Motorhome.

Lewisville Lake Park Campground, Lewisville, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The earlier review shows the park is close and possibly could be open in early summer. From the lack of construction progress I see in the campground I would expect the date to be more like mid to late summer. The reservations phone number has a recording stating they will update the recording when they have an opening date. Note: The campground website does not show the CG is closed. We camped at Lewisville Lake Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Washington County Fair Complex, Hillsboro, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

The only thing which has changed since my last report in 2012 is they had a 50% price increase to $30. The "value" is just not there at the $30 rate. Having said that, if you have reason to be in Hillsboro your other choices entail 35-45 minute drive one way to get here. They don't allow non-event RV parking in July & August because of the number of fairground events scheduled. If you plan on staying, call 503-648-1416, Ext. 200 to be sure they will allow non-event RV parking. We camped at Washington County Fair Complex in a Motorhome.

Osoyoos Lake Veteran's Memorial Park, Oroville, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Camping fees are now $26 for dry camping, no water, elect or sewer. $33 for W & E sites. Dump station is $5 if you don't pay for a camping site. Nice grass. Mostly back-in sites. There are a few pull-thrus. We didn't actually stay, but I did walk through the park to update this report, since there has not been an update since 2014. We parked in the gravel lot at Prince's Grocery since we just wanted a place to park overnight. We camped at Osoyoos Lake Veteran's Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

Prince's RV Park, Oroville, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Price is $10.97. You must go to Prince's Grocery store across the street to purchase a registration receipt to put in the window. The dump is free if you stay, $3 of you just want to dump. No sewer or water hookups. A fresh water spigot is available to fill your water tank. The water tastes good. About the location of the electric post. The posts are all the way at the rear of the gravel parking spots and if you park so your hookup is on the wrong side you may need an extension cord. However unless the place is really, really busy, you shouldn't need to park on the "wrong" side. If 2 RV's are parked side by side in the adjacent sites you won't be able to open an awning and your slide outs will be very close to the other RV. As others stated this is just a gravel parking lot along the hwy. OK for overnight. There is a very nice city CG almost across the road for $26 if you prefer more than a gravel parking lot. We camped at Prince's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rivermount Motel & Campground, Little Fort, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very basic RV Park right on the banks of the North Thompson River about 10 miles south of Clearwater (2 miles north of Little Fort) On PH-5. There is no sewer or dump station available. If your Motorhome or Trailer is longer than about 30-34 feet you will have a hard time maneuvering in the parking area. The main draw here is you are camped right on the water with a great view of the river and an open field across the river, where wildlife sometimes comes down to the river. We camped at Rivermount Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

RV Off Road Park, Dawson, Yukon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Look for a small sign labeled "OFF ROAD PARKING" on the south side of the Klondike Hwy between KM 710 and KM 711. This is an heavy equipment storage area that the owner lets you park in an open gravel area. Nothing fancy, but it is quiet and compared to the RV Parks in the area at $40-$50 a night this place is great. No hookups but there is fresh water and a dump station. We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Dawson City. Best value in town. We camped at RV Off Road Park in a Motorhome.

Tombstone Park Campground (Yukon Government), Dawson City, Yukon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

If you have a sense of adventure and want some fantastic scenery, don't miss this place. This park rivals Denali NP in Alaska in some respects. While it doesn't have the huge Denali mountain, it does have the tundra covered countryside and panoramic views. If you like to hike there are a couple of good well maintained trails. However, you can hike and backpack to your hearts content and you don't have to ride the shuttle bus to get there like Denali. Just drive your vehicle to where you want to hike and take off across the tundra. There are several boondocking spots along the hwy within the 20 miles north of the CG. Park in one of them for fantastic views of the country side, mountains and sun rise and sunsets.

One word of caution, it is 45 miles of gravel road to get to the CG. In Aug 2016, the last 15 miles had lots of potholes. None of the potholes were very deep, but they sure rattled our motorhome on the way in and out. Plan on a 2 hour drive from the paved highway to the CG. I would have given this CG a 10 except for the potholes in the road inside the CG. The campsites are large and well separated from your neighbors. Most sites are open to the sky so your solar panels work well. Don't miss the visitor center, great displays and info about the park. We stayed in the CG for 2 nights and spent one night boondocking at KM 80.5, fantastic view of mountains. We camped at Tombstone Park Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Cabelas parking lot, Anchorage, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The parking lot is large, mostly level and clean. There is a sign stating customers must not stay more than 48 hours. The dump station is out of order. If/when it works it is $5 each dump. A electronic station unlocks the drain if CC or money is inserted in the machine. No potable water available. Easy access from major highways. We camped at Cabelas parking lot in a Motorhome.

Mariner Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice place to stay. We spent 2 weeks here in our motorhome. Our solar panels kept our batteries full. The parking sites are marked with numbered posts. You pull in your motorhome or back in your trailer for a great view of the gravel beach, water and the mountains across the bay or on clear days the mountains across Cook Inlet. When you pull in to park, align your rig so your slides don't extend beyond the numbered post and intrude into the parking site next to you. There is room to sit outside (weather permitting) on the beach side of your RV. If you have a rig less than about 30' long, there is one site #34 on the north side where you can park almost parallel to the beach/water for great views out your side windows. If it is occupied, check to see when they are leaving and grab it the first thing in the morning. We grabbed it the 2nd day we were here and stayed in it for 13 of our 14 days here. The beach front sites are far enough from the road to the spit that road noise is not noticeable. If you are set up for dry camping this is the best place to stay. The amenities are about the same as the $70/night full hookup CG farther out on the spit. So, if you must, you get to pay $55/night more for water, elect & sewer. Lots to do in Homer. The all day boat tour to Soldovia was great. We took it on one of the sunny days we had. The tour goes by a bird rookery island and then slowly cruises along the coast line to Soldovia. We saw whales on the way back to Homer. Be sure to visit the Pratt Museum, the Alaska Ocean & Island Visitor Center, and drive the various roads near Homer for great views of the mountains, bays and water. We camped at Mariner Park in a Motorhome.

Teklanika Campground (NPS Campground), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

We made our reservations online and there was no reservation fee. I assume the reports about the fee was for phone reservations.

Great CG. Great to be able to pick up the shuttle bus at the CG and save 2.5 hours on the round trip. Also with the "Tek Pass" you get one reserved day on the shuttle and you can take as many space available trips on the shuttle bus as you have days at the CG.

You must stay 3 nights minimum. You may not leave the CG in your vehicle. If you do, you may not return past the checkpoint at MM15. We camped at Teklanika Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Savage River Campground (NPS Campground), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

We visited Savage River CG while staying at Riley Creek CG and wanted to give an update since the last review was in 2010. We didn't see anything to change from earlier reviews. This is a much nicer and quieter CG than Riley Creek. Great hiking trails within 1/4 mile of CG. The main down side is, no cell phone signal (Verizon), so no internet from our MiFi device. Many of the campsites have a view of the mountains. CG fees are $22 & $28 with 50% off for senior pass. "A" campsites are for RV's over 30' & "B" sites are for under 30'. Not all "B" sites will take a 29" RV and not all "A" sites will take a 40' RV. Arrive by noon for best selection of campsites. Fill your water tank and dump at Riley Creek CG before coming to Savage River. Signs at water spigots request that you not fill your RV water tank. You MUST get your camping pass at the Wilderness Access Center (WAC) or Riley Creek Mercantile before going to Savage Creek CG. We camped at Savage River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
