What a messed up RV park! We were told to register in the casino at the players club. Stood in line only to be told to go to the casino cashier. Assigned space B11 only to find the person in B10 had hook up to B11 utilities as their space wasn't working. Back to the casino and got B10. One hour later I had to remove a sign from the ground to get our slide out in B10 and the dump drain was so far away we couldn't hook up until we moved back the next morning. Casino is the darkest, smokey casino we have ever seen. Park needs a bulldozer and their is no management of the RV park that we could see. Was told we could not bring our chase car into the park and had to leave in the casino parking lot overnight even though half the park was empty (wonder why?).

Really nice people at check in and a very clean park. Problem is the park needs a bulldozer and re-do. Our pull through site was so un-level that we could not empty our tanks without leveling our rig. Nice and quiet at night,for one night. We liked Cedar City. Very overpriced for the sites. Good news is our site was 90FT long!

The best park in Bend is also the most expensive, but in this case you mostly get what you pay for. WI-FI is better this year than it was in '12 and management has made other improvements. Park would rate a 10, if it had a pool.

Location is key here. Sites are not great and not level - gravel get very wet in the rain, but hey you are near the river and can walk to the lake. Bring you boat and tie up at the park's dock or rent one of their boats. Lots of kiddies having fun during the day, but we found the park nice and quiet at night. We would return for a day or two.

A lack of shade combined with most sites facing the wrong way (patios face west) make this park hot in the summer. Mobile homes around the outside block most views. Fireworks were allowed in the park on July 4th and went till 12:30AM. Big fireworks show right next door at the airport was up close and personal. Most animals in the park were terrified including our two cats. Strong and fast WI-FI a plus, whereas the small laundry room a minus. For class A's go to the nearby motor coach resort.

This park would rate much higher, but there is pretty much zero Internet access. Verizon coverage was weak in Lakeside with no 3G or 4G, so the lack of Internet caused us to cut our stay short as we could not communicate with our business. Manager said they only had one Internet line for the whole park and that they would not add more as RV'er's are too cheap to pay for it. WI-FI in the restaurant across the street was not good either. Too bad, as this is a good location for Flathead Lake. We had to drive to nearby Kalispell to login with our iPads twice a day.

Both times we've stayed here we've scratched the side of our 40FT 5ver and a motor home with the close in tree branches. Sites are too close together for larger rigs and not level. We could only get 30 amps at our site. WI-FI worked well and the location adjacent to Whitefish is good. Would not go back unless park is improved. This park could be a gem, but not today.

This windy park is a good value if you want to be adjacent to a casino. There is Hwy 101 noise in the spots near the front so go bay side if you can. We found the adjacent Casino restaurants very average. Was told on check in that the park W-IFI is not really useable so we used our 3G cards. Adjacent gravel lots are dusty so middle section is better. Casino is typically smoky so we ran through on our way to dining. Fuel up in nearby Roseburg as fuel here was 15 to 20 cents a gallon higher for diesel (check your GasBuddy app on your smart phone).

Turtle Rock RV has likely seen better days, as has most of Gold Beach. Previous reviewer is correct in that they have stopped maintaining the grass areas including between rigs. Park has dirt and gravel roads and RV pads. The park looks to be replacing RV sites with park models that they are selling and renting. Tent sites adjacent to RV sites don’t work (barking dogs and campfires). Summary: Overpriced and under-maintained. We drove through a nearby place which would be our choice (by a hair) if we returned to Gold Beach. Don’t miss ‘Rolling In Dough’ Café on the other side of town for breakfast, lunch, or baked goods (limited hours).

After looking around the area, and if we had a generator we would likely chose the lakeside state park at Diamond Lake next visit just to be on the lake. The RV Park is across the highway and has no real lake views. The staff was friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers are about one or two decades overdue for a remodel. Our site #1 was inches from the next rig with slides. Sites in the back of the park look better than the pull through sites near the front. No AT&T 3G and very limited Verizon phone service. Better reception at the Diamond Lake Lodge where we took our beach chairs and sat by the water driving to Crater Lake. Yes, bring your mosquito spray!

This was our forth visit of several weeks to Crown Villa over the last three years. The park would rate a 10 in our book but for two issues on both of our visits. 1. Continued Wi-Fi problems. We work via the Web while we travel and the Wi-Fi connection has been from fair to zero. If the park is full it is very slow or worse. When the park Wi-Fi is bad our Verizon 4G card was also very slow as people in the park tended to use their 3G and 4G cards to bypass the slow park Wi-Fi. I'm told management is addressing the situation in the future so time will tell. 2. The park takes four days to cut their grass. They have one guy on a small mower that's doing his best but needs a bigger or second mower. Since it takes four days to mow the park can be noisy Monday to Thursday. Add all the leaf blowers on those days and don't want to wash your rigs except on the weekends. I must add that the staff is very good. They are here their to help you. Crown Villa is still the only place to stay in Bend!

Deerwood is more quite but unlike the Deerwood website advertises you can indeed hear road noise. The premium spaces in the back are away from the road noise. Not all spaces are good for big rigs. We had to pick and choose our spot for our 40FT fifth wheel as the road around the park is quite narrow. Some spaces now have new, wider concrete pads. We noted that the few pull through spaces were very narrow, close together and also near the highway at the front of the park. Overall a nice spot to spend a night or two in Eugene if you pick your space carefully.

We found this park to be a good stop for a night or two. While the sites are very basic gravel/grass with some sprinkler issues (read mud), the bay view and the adjacent good food and service at the casino kind of made up for it. Our clubhouse sandwiches came in at about five pounds and lasted four days for $9.95! Dinner was great as well, with reasonable wine prices. The adjacent fuel stop is also Indian owned and we found fuel to be 20 cents less than other stations. Other guests here said this was the lowest priced diesel within 100 miles! Boats go by the nearby grassy beach area. Don’t worry about the train tracks as only one local freight train goes by each day. We planned on taking the drive south down highway 20 and the ferry to Port Townsend but had to turn around. We did not have a reservation and the wait time at 11AM was stretched until 9:30 PM! Book ferries ahead of time!

A great stop for the night. Well off I-5 for peace and quiet. Nice walking along the adjacent river dike from the park all the way to two shopping centers that straddle I-5. We booked a pull through site but were told we’d have to back in our 31 ft Airstream trailer in a smaller site as they wanted the pull through’s for the big rigs. Next morning there were half a dozen pull through sites unused! Nice big Safeway in the main shopping center with good diesel prices. Don’t miss the friendly service and fun bar tender in the cantina at the nearby Azteca Mexican Restaurant. Well worth the five-minute drive (behind Safeway).

We choose Harrison Hot Springs to meet friends from Vancouver that like to stay at the lodge. The Springs RV Resort seemed to be the best choice after looking online. Pulling into the gravel driveway I said to my wife: "Oh-No!" Most sites have a trailer parked for the season with the rest of the sites were overbuilt with decks, tents, gazebos, fences grills and more. Some people combined two or more sites for a really big family and/or friends compound. Heavy smokers abound. Our site was all plain gravel with one tree and an old wood picnic table. Getting backed in was not easy but the local residents were friendly and helpful. The music and TV was constant from nearby sites from 8AM to the 11PM quiet time. That said, at 11PM it did get very quiet. This seems to be a park the long-term family and friends return to decade after decade. On the plus side, the new owners have invested in a nice new pool and clubhouse area (children filled). If the rest of the park were this nice, The Springs would be a worthy stop when visiting BC. That said the other local parks did not look much better from the outside either.
