Pechanga RV Resort & Casino, Temecula, California

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

This is a very nice RV resort. The rate reflects our Passport America discount, but we also paid $65 for one night on the weekend. There is construction on one end of the park where they are undergoing a huge expansion - will be nice to see when it is done. We overheard the office staff saying the RV resort guests will have access to all the hotel resort pools as well. Our site was concrete, very clean, nice grass and trees - very nice setting. The pool area was very nice with two spas. We were here during the heat advisory so it was 107 degrees but still enjoyed morning walks, going to the pool and catching the free shuttle over to the casino during the evenings. We stayed in site D24 which was huge with a lot of grass. Because it was so hot, we weren't outside during the daytime so the construction didn't bother us, but you could hear it if you went outside. Many good wineries in the area too. Loved this resort and especially because they are affiliated with PA we make this a destination again. Can't beat it! We camped at Pechanga RV Resort & Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Many good wineries in the area but go to Costco to buy your wine. We were members at a winery and bought some wine at their discounted prices - then later that day saw the same wine at Costco for several $ less per bottle.

Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground, Buellton, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $93.00
Overall Rating:      

We loved this park! It was quite expensive on the summer weekends but only $65 during the week. Our site was nice with good spacing, grass and each site had a large tree. Some of the other reviews seemed to recommend the new section but after driving through, there was no shade, the grass was a little burnt out and didn't seem as nice but the pads were all concrete there and clean. We ended up in site 330 which was fantastic even though it was gravel. Very close to both pools. There is so much to do at this park. Friday night had a BBQ and live music with one man playing guitar - quite good. We sat in the large patio area that had comfortable cushioned patio furniture and a large circular gas firepit. Saturday night was a band. Both pools are fantastic. There are areas for games such as bocce ball, volleyball, etc, but we didn't even get to these as we were so busy having fun in the other areas. There is a nice off-leash dog park, one of the best I've seen at an RV park. There are some full-timers here too but they seem to be on one side of the park and didn't detract from the rest of the park. One of the pools had fountains, a playground and is very good for the kids. The other one seemed to be geared more toward the adults with (free) cabanas and both an outdoor and adult-only indoor gazebo hot tub spa. They provide a large selection of free dvd's - 2 at a time, have a large store and cafe with espresso and ice cream on site. We will definitely plan another vacation here again! We camped at Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

So much to do at this resort, but if you venture out there is Solvang which is fantastic for breakfast. Just 5 or 6 miles down the road to Solvang and just a short drive to Santa Barbara and the beaches. We went to Paula's Pancake House and had the danish pancakes which were excellent. The Solvang Restaurant has ebelskivers which are fun to try. Santa Barbara is approx 45 minutes away and has several dog beaches. Our favorite was Arroyo Burro Beach County Park. It even has a dog wash for $10 to clean your dog after swimming.

Vines RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $87.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice resort. We stayed here 4 nights and our friends from the San Jose area also rented one of the cottages just down from us. This was the perfect set-up and we all had a great time exploring the area. Everything was excellent - the hookups, the aesthetics with clean concrete pads, beautifully landscaped sites, the clubhouse and pool/spa. We stayed in the back row away from the highway so it was quite peaceful. The service was fantastic! Both of the ladies in the office were a great help with our reservations. They had free wine tasting on Friday night with some local vendors selling some unique trendy things. My only knock is that we never got to experience the bar area with the games etc. in the clubhouse because it was never open when we wanted to go. It would have been nice if they could partition the bar off and keep the rest of the clubhouse open as there didn't seem to be much to do onsite other the hang out by the beautiful pool area. Overall a great stay and we would definitely come again. We camped at Vines RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Justin Winery was fantastic and worth the very scenic drive to get there. We drove to the coast about 1/2 away on the beautiful 46 highway. Stopped at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve which is a beautiful park with a large natural grassy area overlooking the ocean with long trails where we walked the dogs. Main Street Grill was the only dog-friendly place around and was an excellent find with FANTASTIC food and a very nice patio. Went to Hearst Castle and Elephant Seal Beach too.

Coyote Valley RV Resort, Morgan Hill, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice RV resort. We stayed here one night and would definitely stay again as there are not a lot of parks near the SF/Sunnyvale area near where our friends live. This resort has very nice clean concrete pads, nice landscaping, good utilities, wi-fi, great service and lots of amenities in the clubhouse/pool area. Near a golf course and right next to a very nice bike trail system that goes for miles and miles along the creek and beyond. Close to Los Gatos which has great restaurants. Wish they would/could purchase the property between the resort and the river in order to gain better access to the trails and riverfront area as right now it is very dry scratchy primitive trails, but at least you can get back there through the gates. Would also be nice if they added some cottages for our friends who do not have an RV to stay close by when we visit the area. We camped at Coyote Valley RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Devil's Lake RV Park, Lincoln City, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Pull-through site with asphalt, beautiful grass and landscaped nicely. The turn to get in was a little tight with a 39' fifth wheel, we ran over some of the large landscaped rock on entry. All of the sites are on a hillside slope so they are not level from side to side or from front to rear. All RV's seemed to be using large wood leveling blocks. There are full-timers and cabins in the campground too but everyone seemed to keep their areas very nice. We stayed here one night. Would stay again.

Sunrise Resorts-Copalis Beach Park, Copalis Beach, Washington

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

Basically like camping in a gravel parking lot with very little aesthetics. There is a clubhouse which is a converted worn-out house with several different rooms to do puzzles, etc. There is a long trail that goes down to the beach. The sand here is darker and the day was gloomy so it was a typical pacific northwest day. Every park in the area was full so this was the only RV park that had space for us after calling about 15 of them. Probably wouldn't stay again. The casino has RV parking / dry camping for $5/night with good beach access. Might check that out if passing through again. We camped at Sunrise Resorts-Copalis Beach Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Shadow Mountain Campground RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

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

We stopped for one night and wanted to be close to Port Angeles to take the ferry to Victoria. Since all the parks in the area were full we stayed here because they had a cancellation. It was OK for a nights stay and the site itself was very nice. Staff were friendly and there was a large store on the property where we checked in which was fun to walk through. Probably wouldn't stay again because there didn't seem to be much for us to do here or in the immediate area. Hookups worked well. There was a large area with some dry grass surrounded by woods with sand volleyball courts but we didn't use any of that really. We camped at Shadow Mountain Campground RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Whistler RV Park and Campground, Whistler, British Columbia

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

The view at this park was amazing! Hookups were good too. There is a shortage of RV parks in the area so very few options. This park was about 15km out of town and you have to drive up a very steep road with 3 switchbacks to get to it. Staff seemed minimal and office always seemed to be closed so only available in case of emergency really. We got a kick out of the frisbee golf course they claimed to have but it was literally like bush-wacking through a mountainous woods area while getting bit by mosquitos. Couldn't wait to get out of the course. There are a few road/trails on either end of the park if you like to get out and explore a bit or walk the dog(s). Hookups were at the very back of the site, so it was quite a stretch on the sewer hoses for a big rig. Would stay here again only because it's the only campground in the area that seems to be able to accomodate big rigs. The other one in town would be VERY tight for a 39' fifth wheel and we would not even try that after driving through it. We camped at Whistler RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Whistler Village is a fantastic area to explore in the summer with lots of shops, pubs, restaurants and areas to walk around with the creek going right through it. Mountain biking on the mountain in the summer with brewpubs overlooking the base jumps and such. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler hotel is worth the walk-through. There are many trails in the Upper Village area near the river that are pleasant to walk/bike. Lakeside Park at Alta Lake was also very nice with kayak/canoe rentals.

Golden Golf Club RV Park, Golden, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was the best deal in the area right next to a golf course. You can't see the golf course from the area you camp in, but we took the short walk over to the clubhouse and had dinner and a beer out on the nice patio. We stayed here two nights in order to raft the Kicking Horse River. This was a nice stay and everything was relaxed and low-key. We were given our site number when we called to make the reservation, so we parked the rig and then walked down to the clubhouse to check in. Otherwise, we never really saw the management, but there were no issues whatsoever. We will warn you though that there is a long narrow one-lane bridge over the river that you have to cross in order to get to the park that we did not expect. This bridge is not for the faint of heart if you have a big rig! (but very do-able) This campground is on the other side of the river so it isn't as close-in as it first appeared, but we would stay here again. We camped at Golden Golf Club RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverhouse Tavern was excellent!!! Outdoor patio, live music in the adjacent park/ampitheater on summer weekends. Great food! They allowed our dogs out on the patio with us. Went up to the Golden ski area - somewhat like a ghost town in the summer months, but there seems to be a nice restaurant (limited hours so call ahead) and a separate pub to have a beer on the patio - but the view isn't quite what you'd expect at a ski hill.

Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada), Jasper National Park, Alberta

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

Campground was sufficient for the stay in Jasper but nothing exciting about it. There is a lack of campgrounds in Jasper and not very many have hookups. The parks could definitely improve in this area. We dry- camped which was fine. Generators were allowed during certain times. No trails nearby and we couldn't really find anything to do at the campground itself so the only reason we would stay here again is to visit the area. Try to book in advance if possible to get a better site/campground if anything better is available? No wi-fi. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Louise Trailer Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

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

Campground was nice with plenty of room in the site for the big rig. Sites have two sites side by side which shared one pad and faced opposite directions. There are patches of woods in between the next two sites. Excellent hiking trails out to the Bow River toward the south end of the campground. No wi-fi but we didn't expect it anyway. Since we didn't book in advance we were only able to stay 2 nights since they were basically full all summer. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Fairmont Lake Louise, of course! Whitehorn Bistro at the top of the gondola. Play the yard chess game at the base of the gondola (free). The gift shops at the Lake Louise gondola base were MUCH cheaper than anywhere else in Banff or Lake Louise with the same merchandise costing approx 30% less across the board. Hiking trails along the Bow River were very nice but be cautious for bears.

Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

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

We loved this park for it's proximity to Banff and ability to accomodate our 39' fifth wheel with full hookups. The turnoff is not very well marked. There is a big in the middle of a fork in the road but no arrow telling you which way to go. So, turn up-hill at the sign when you sign it. There are 3 large square sections A, B and C in this park and the rows start 1 -8 with the 100's being closer to the front and the higher the number toward the back. Section A is closer to town. There is no wi-fi and I don't remember there being any access to laundry, but the park is close to town with many walking trails nearby. All sites were pull-thru's. Make sure to book in advance. We booked last minute because we were sure of our arrival dates and could only stay in 2-day segments and had to move sites once. We would definitely come back and stay longer next time. We camped at Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't miss the Hoodoo View Point trail which looks across the valley back toward the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. This hotel is also a must see. Have a beer on the patio of the German restaurant behind the hotel or sit in one of their cozy library rooms. Banff Hot Springs - go after 9 or 10pm when most of the kids are gone and it's less crowded. They are open until 11pm in the summer. Grizzly House - fondue restaurant was my favorite dinner in over 2 months of camping.

Raven's Nest RV, West Kelowna, British Columbia

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

This is a newer but very barebones RV park which basically feels like you are staying in a gravel parking lot right next to your neigbhors. No grass, no trees and it was hot and smoky from the forest fires. BUT, the rates were good, the hookups worked great, service was good, wi-fi worked well and we were very close to the best wineries in town. Not sure if we would stay here again as we like places with some grass and trees (everything else was full), so hopefully they will add some aesthetics soon! There are adding more sites and a small two-story office was just starting to be built but still under construction. We camped at Raven's Nest RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Quails Gate and Mission Hill wineries were our favorite. There is a very nice, very large (long) grassy beach park just to the SE just a couple miles away, with an adjacent dog beach. Nice place to bring some floating rafts and enjoy the water and cool off a bit in the summer. The downtown area is nice with a very nice, very large park area, lots of restaurants with a large (members only) yacht club but probably has some boat rentals and such. Nice place to walk around.

Whispering Spruce Campground, Golden, British Columbia

Overall Rating:      

We stopped in here to see if they had a site because we wanted to stay in Golden for one night in order to do the white-water rafting nearby. The campground was very run down and is recovering from some storm damage. There was no privacy and the sites were very close. It definitely wasn't as nice as it appeared in the pictures and we did not stay even though they were able to find a very rough and extremely uneven site that would accommodate us. The guy running the park was friendly and was trying to accommodate us. Would recommend other parks in the area instead. We camped at Whispering Spruce Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Calaway Park, Calgary, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Had a difficult time choosing an RV park close to downtown Calgary as they all seemed expensive and the reviews were not that great. This ended up being a decent park with smaller spaces and very close to your neighbors. They did have large grassy areas to play in. The park is attached to a large amusement park so it would be very convenient if you are planning to go there. It was about a 30 minute drive into downtown Calgary and the Winsport Olympic complex was just a few kilometers down the road. We passed the entrance to the RV park as there were no signs and it looked like it was only the entrance to the amusement park. It was very difficult to turn the big rig around and there were no entrances coming from the other direction which required another turn around in the RV dealer's parking lot cross the street, so make sure you turn into the amusement park to access the RV park. There was an extra charge for the highly restricted (basically e-mail usage only) Wi-Fi and the office did not guarantee its speed or coverage at the site. We would stay again if stopping through but would also consider another park. We camped at Calaway Park in a Fifth Wheel.
