About Rollin Ollens

As of December 02,2017 we are now retired. We are now spending as much time as we can to see the country but not through glass. We will be taking our time moving from one destination to the next meeting as many people as possible and enjoying the sights to be seen.

Bow Valley Provincial Park, Bow River Campground, Canmore, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is excellent via an overpass. The road through the park is paved and in good condition. There are a few spots that look tight but while were were there we saw a 45 footer towing a car hauler and a 47 foot triple axle pass through easily. Sites from the low 60s look to be the longest and widest. Check in was quick and easy as it was a self check-in. Payment is either cash stuffed into a provided envelope or by Credit Card info printed in the appropriate boxes. This park has been newly renovated. We were here last in 2011 and it was rough compared to now. The sites are all back in, hard packed gravel with a picnic table, fire pit and a power and water pedestal. Power is 15 and 30 Amp. The water had not been connected during our stay. It is scheduled to be turned on late September or early October so it should be all active for next season. The nearest potable water source is at the Canmore Information Center about 10 minutes west where there is a free dump station as well. Our site (26) had a beautiful view of the river and mountains. Let it be known that the riverside sites are the most desirable. We had people waiting in line for us to leave. Sites in the 30s and 40s were closest to the highway. Traffic noise can be heard at all sites though. Most of the forest undergrowth has been removed so the sites are not as private as they used to be but there is still a good bit of distance between neighbors. The camp hosts do a really good job maintaining the sites and making sure rules are followed. They also sold firewood, delivered to your site. We paid $33.00 per night and we feel that we received good value. W.e would return. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park, Bow River Campground in a Motorhome.

This is probably the best place to use as a base for visiting Calgary as well as Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance but the good sized town of Canmore is a few minutes away.Lots of bicycling nearby. Pedal the Legacy trail to Banff. Amazing!! Rafting trips available in Canmore. Hiking etc. So much to do nearby.

Bow Valley Provincial Park - Three Sisters Campground, Canmore, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is easy from the Trans Canada using the Dead Mans Flats exit. Check in is quick and easy (Self Check in). This is one of the few campgrounds in the area that is "first come first served". There is a maximum stay of 16 days. Parameter roads are paved but in tough shape in places. Very big rigs might have a problem maneuvering. We were lucky and got a site by the river. It was quiet and peaceful except for the highway noise. Having spent a good deal of time in the Bow Valley we were used to this noise. It didn't bother us. Each site comes with a picnic table and fire pit. Ours was hard packed gravel and a reasonable distance from our neighbors. We checked out the Vault Toilets and were glad we didn't need to use them. Although we know they were cleaned daily the fact that they are old and dilapidated made them pretty undesirable. Water and a Sani Station are about 15 minutes down the road at the Canmore Info Center. Fire wood is delivered to your site at $10.00 per bundle. We though it was a bit expensive. There are restaurants and a small store within walking distance. All services are available in Canmore just a short drive down the road. There are no hiking trails close to the park but plenty a short drive away. There is very little to do at this park except rest and relax and use it as a base for Banff, Lake Louise or even Calgary. We paid $26.00 Cdn and feel we received fair value. We would return if in the area. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Three Sisters Campground in a Motorhome.

Bow Valley Provincial Park, Lac Des Arcs Campground, Canmore, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is easy from the Trans Canada each direction via highway overpass. Parameter roads are wide and paved. There is no check in required as until mid August this park is reserve only. There is an off site host that periodically checks on the park, sells firewood and cleans/services the sites. I suspect that you could arrive and wait for the host to stop by to pay for your site as the park was never full while we were there. You will hear road noise as the park is next to the highway. You will hear train noise as the valley is narrow and the track is a main east west line. We got used to the noise after a day or two. Our site consisted of a hard packed gravel base with a table and fire pit. Very basic. There are shelters with wood stoves in the park that would be handy during inclement weather. There are no flush toilets just vaults that were quite clean (we didn't use them). The only reason we stayed at this park is because we spent the summer in the Bow Valley and the Provincial Parks have a max stay of 16 days. There are no amenities near by. Dead Man's Flat has gasoline and a small store about 5 miles west. About ten miles west is the good sized town of Canmore that has full services and good restaurants. There are nicer parks in the valley but this one did work for us. We would return. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park, Lac Des Arcs Campground in a Motorhome.

A very easy hike up Heart Creek was very nice. A more energetic scramble up Heart Mountain is well worth it for the views. There are areas where you can get into more serious climbing very near by. Plenty of day hiking in the area.

Bow Valley Provincial Park, Bow Valley Campground, Canmore, Alberta

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

My only complaint is that it is almost impossible to stay at this park over a weekend. It is usually fully reserved. Access is easy from highway one. Follow a 6 km paved access road. Check in at a well stocked store was quick and easy. Our attendant was knowledgeable and helpful. You are not allowed to cruise the park to choose your site. It is chosen for you depending on your requirements. We could not get a serviced site (all taken) but were assigned a very nice site right beside the river. The site was level hard packed gravel with a fire ring and table a good distance away from our neighbors in a forest setting. The scenery was amazing. We did hear some traffic noise from the other side of the valley and, of course, some train noise, but it was not loud. Rules are minimal but strictly enforced. If you are not self contained, the nearest toilets are Vaults. The "Comfort Station" as named by Albert Parks is a good distance away. We peeked in and found them to be very clean. Showers required tokens available at the nearby store. There are many hiking trails nearby. If you are into quiet and nature, this is a good place to be. There are no restaurants withing walking distance. Major services and stores are in Canmore about 15 miles west. There is a maximum stay of 16 days so there are no long term users. The dump station is located near the entrance to the park so it was a 6 Km drive to dump and another 6 back - a little inconvenient. We paid $26.00 inc tax per night and feel we received good value. We would return if in the area. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park, Bow Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Bow Valley Provincial Park, Willow Rock Campground, Canmore, Alberta

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is easy from Highway 1. Parameter roads are gravel, wide and Big Rig Friendly. Check in was easy (self registration). We arrived very early in the season. Water in the park had not been turned on as the ground was still frozen. The Dump Station was open but again no water. A spigot at the main washroom was live so one could fill their tank. The section of the park that was service with power was wide open. The sites were close together, level, with only a table and a small patch of grass but the surrounding scenery was breathtaking. We noticed that it can get windy and you will hear road noise. The park is quite spread out. The lower loop is forested and the sites are spaced nicely but they are un-serviced. We would have preferred to have stayed there but it was cold and we needed the electricity. We had a herd of elk wander through and lots of deer as well. There is a 16 day maximum stay so there are no long term users. There are no services within walking distance. Weekends get busy with Calgarians visiting the mountains and this is a first come first served park. We felt the cost was a little high given that we were there off season but I'm sure the use of our electric heater balance the cost. We would return. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park, Willow Rock Campground in a Motorhome.

Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Arizona

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

I gave this park a higher rating that I should have but the downfall was our fault. We did not reserve a site!! Access to the park is paved all the way. Our GPS tried to take us down a dirt road. Don't follow the GPS. Stay on highway 88. Check in was quick, efficient and informative. We were placed in the Overflow section for one night (site 118) with no services (same price as everyone else). I could not walk on the left side of my unit with slide out because their was a steep bank that dropped down about four feet. The site was a paved island with a gravel patio area with a metal table and a fire pit. No shade as it is located in the desert. It was very basic but we were happy to get the spot. The second night we were asked to move over to the Group Camp site. This, in our opinion, is much nicer than the overflow (still no services). We had a double wide site, level, with a covered picnic shelter to use and the washroom/shower traffic was pretty much just us. The view was nicer as well. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. We paid $30.00 per night and feel we received good value. We would return but with a reservation. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Orchard Valley RV Park, Kelowna, British Columbia

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

Access to the park is good. Easy to find and pavement all the way. Parameter road is dirt with a spattering of gravel and lots of pot holes. Check in was different. We arrived without a reservation but had called ahead to find out if they had a space. Their Web Site specifies $30.00 and up depending on site, date and lenghth of stay. We were appointed a space (11) and were told to go get set up and then we would be checked in. There is no office per say. I was invited into the owner's kitchen and we proceeded to complete the transaction. I was expecting to pay $30.00 night as this is off season and the spot they gave me had "NO" services! It was late in the day and we were already set up otherwise I would have left. I would have been just as comfortable at a Walmart. Our site was level loose pea gravel that was easily tracked in to the coach. We did have cedar trees to give us some privacy. We were the only transients in the park. There was a trashy old school bus with a lot of baggage across from us but the rest of the units didn't look too bad. There were no restaurants or shops withing walking distance. We paid $45.00 night and feel we paid way too much. We did not like being tricked into staying here. We will never return. We camped at Orchard Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Easy access from highway 97. Check was quick and painless (self check in). Parameter roads are paved and easily maneuverable (big rig friendly). Sites are gravel. There are a few pull through but most are back in as well as some with no services. Utilities were to the left rear. There is a table and fire pit but no patio. We were here off season and we had very few neighbors. There is no cable but a good selection of OTA. I can see "Park Wifi" as an option but I could not log on as I did not have a password. Washrooms and showers were clean but dated. Fifty cents (US quarters only) for the shower. There is a beach at the park. It is sandy but some places are more rocky than sandy. There are no restaurants or stores within easy walking distance. We paid $24.00 per night (off season) and feel we received fair value. We would return.

Good access from highway 97. Check in was quick and easy. Mr. Ranger was done for the day but saw us drive up. He waited so we would not have to go through the self check in process and, as a result, we were able to pay via Credit Card instead of Cash. Points for great service. Parameter roads are paved, wide and easy to maneuver. Sites are a mix of Serviced, Unserviced, Pull Through and Back In. As we got there near the end of the day the we could only use a Serviced Back In. There was a Pull Through available but unserviced. Sites are paved, level, come with a table patio and a fire ring. Services were placed to the left rear and all worked well. The fire ring was well placed as well. We had plenty of room and our neighbors were a good distance away. There is no Wifi or Cable but our Jet Pack and OTA worked well. The only complaint (and it's pretty minor) was that there were a lot of dead leaves and Goose droppings everywhere. We did not use the bathrooms but checked on their condition...spotless. The showers require a token. There are no restaurants or stores within walking distance but all services can be found in Wenatchee a very short distance away. We paid $30.00 night and feel we received good value. We would return if in the area. We camped at Wenatchee Confluence State Park in a Motorhome.

Sherman County RV Park, Moro, Oregon

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This park is about 18 miles south of I-30 on highway 97. Access is paved road all the way. Parameter roads are hard packed gravel as are the sites. There are a few back in but most are pull through. Services are to the left rear and all worked well. Very strong Wifi and a good selection of Cable channels (with out the box). Check in was quick and easy (self check in). There is no camp host right now a recruitment is in the works. Cash or check only ($25.00 fee for out of country checks)!! If you are Canadian bring cash. We had a bit of a time getting level (points lost). Depending on the site some are more level at the rear and some at the front. All sites come with a table and raised grill. We chose this park hoping to get out of the wind. it is not a bad as beside the Columbia but still can get a bit breezy. There are two wash houses. The one at the entrance is older and dated but very clean. Laundry Mat is there as well. Two washers and two driers and again very clean. The wash house inside the park is a lot newer. It is very up to date and again spotless. This park was purpose built for the County Fair as the grounds are right next door. There is zero for activities other than to rest and relax. The small town of Moro is a bit of a walk and you will find a store and restaurant there. For the price, this park is an amazing deal. We paid $20.00 and feel that we received a bargain. If in the area again we would return. We camped at Sherman County RV Park in a Motorhome.

A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park), Baker City, Oregon

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

Access from I-84 was very easy. It is close to the freeway but far enough away that one did not hear traffic. Check in was quick, friendly and informative. When asked what brought us to Baker City and we replied the Oregon Trail our clerk was quick to offer lots of info. This is an urban park but on the outskirts so it was quiet. Parameter roads and sites are sparse gravel and easy to maneuver. We had a pull through that was reasonably level but our "green space" was rough and lumpy. It was hard to place our grill in a level spot. Services were to the left rear and all worked correctly. There was no Cable TV but we received strong OTA signals. Wifi worked very well. Our site came with a table but no fire pit or patio. This is an older park. It could use some spiffing up. The landscaping is very blah. Get rid of the crappy, lumpy wanna be grass and put in a patio instead. The dog area was huge and fenced. It appeared that everyone picked up. There were a number of permanents and some units looked a little trashy but all in all the park served us well. There are no restaurants or stores within walking distance. We paid $30.20 with G S discount including taxes. We feel that the cost was fair and would return. We camped at A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Snake River RV Resort, Homedale, Idaho

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Access from US 95 is easy following the signs. We got a little nervous at first. The park appeared to be in an industrial area but we did not have any issues with noise or anything. Check in was quick, easy and informative. The owner gave us a choice: The back row was pretty vacant if we wanted privacy or the front row (water front) as long as we were okay with neighbors. We chose the front row and we were glad. The parameter roads were gravel and easy to access. The sites are all on grass which has its merits and draw backs. Our site looked at first to be unlevel but when we applied our levelers we discovered that it was pretty even. There is plenty of room between rigs. The services are to the left rear and all worked well. The front of the park is on the banks of the Snake River. The landscaping is beautiful and well manicured. You can tell the owner cares about the grounds. Rules are pretty basic and easy to follow. We did not notice any dogs off leash and did not find any doggy do. Folks here seem to abide by the rules. This park should get a ten but for one picky point. We like to have a mat at our door. Understandably, they are not allowed as the grass beneath would die. We love the grass but would rather have a concrete pad with a small patio. We paid $32.00 per night with G S discount and feel we received good value for our dollar. We would return. We camped at Snake River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow! Having read the previous reviews were were going to use this park as a stop over. The signage is a joke. The "For sale" sign confirmed that we were at the correct place. Access is easy right off of Main Street. Parameter roads are......weed covered gravel. Sites are.......weed covered gravel. We arrived to a closed office that had a note taped to the door with some envelopes. The note said put your $20.00 in the lock box. We had a look a the available sites. Three were taken. We only saw four or five other sites open. I don't know where the 20 count comes from. One had NO working services. Two had damaged electrical boxes and the others had no water. Further, they backed onto the local skateboard hangout. Seriously, I would rather stay at a busy truck stop than this place. There is not much in the area. We ended up driving another hour to find a decent place. Do yourself a favour. Ignore this place!! We camped at Sunny Ridge RV/MH Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Easy access from US 95. It is located at the north end of Hawthorne. The signage is very good. Access and parameter roads are hard packed gravel and very big rig friendly. Check in was quick and informative. There is a small store on site. All sites are concrete pull thorough with washed pea gravel in between. Services were to the left rear and worked very well. Every site has a tree that in time will provide nice shade. Right now they are a little on the small side. Landscaping is nice but, like the trees, a little immature. Cable TV "without the box" worked well. There was a good assortment of channels. Included Wifi was strong until someone decided to stream some video. We did not notice any road noise. We were very impressed with Whiskey Flats. They delivered everything that was promised and did it well. There are no restaurants within walking distance but Safeway is an easy walk. We paid $28.71 inc tax per night and feel we received good value for our dollar. We will return. We camped at Whiskey Flats RV Park in a Motorhome.

Access is reasonably easy from I-80. Good paved road all the way. There is a traffic circle that is odd...two lanes leading to it but you must be in the left lane to enter the circle. Check in was quick, easy and informative. Informative in that Wifi did not work. It was being worked on. The clerk insisted that we be escorted to our site. It was a pull through and easy to find. There was no need for the escort. Parameter roads are gravel and dusty. The pad was concrete. The site was just wide enough for both of our opposing slides. Services were to the left and well placed. I did not like the water spigot. It was less than one inch from the ground. We discovered our Cable did not work. Spoke with clerk and was informed her husband would be by momentarily to fix. He never showed up. I had an extra length of cable so I tapped into our neighbors. It was snowy so we used OTA. All of the dumpsters we saw were overflowing. The only thing that we found adequate was the laundry room. It was clean and reasonably priced. ninty percent permanents and it shows. Lots of junk outside. We had planned to stay three or four nights but left after one. We paid $37.30 inc tax with G S discount and feel we were over charged. We will not return.
