OK RV Park, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We were surprised at the size of this park. The FHU utilities worked well, including the cable TV. Very quiet, very roomy all pull-throughs. Nothing pretty here, but very convenient! We camped at OK RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ruins Road RV Park & Campground, Aztec, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $28.00

Very level gravel sites. Water pressure was good, 50 amp electricity was good, and the sewer worked perfectly. Ruins are close by, shopping is close by. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The price is just right for this place. If you use a Garmin GPS....it won't get you to the park. Just go to the Ruins Road and head toward the NPS Ruins Monument....The RV park is on the right.

Happy Camper RV Park, Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Very helpful staff, who worked with us to figure out how to use the discounts. We paid so many different rates, we really don't know how much we paid for the 8 nights we stayed. They do have nightly/discount/weekly and monthly rates. During peak times, the water pressure was pretty low, but we used the on-board water pump to supplement and it worked fine and had a good on-board shower. We typically filtered our water 3x and never had any unsatisfactory water.....with a Zero water filter, we got the TDS levels down to 0. 50 /30/ 20 amp offered and it was right at 120+ volts. Over nighters are put on the front row near the road, and yes, there is quite a bit of road noise, but not a lot of traffic at night. We had to move to a different site because we couldn't get level in our motorhome. After checking all of the RV parks in the Pagosa area, this one is the best deal $$ by a long shot! There are quite a few long-term residents, but they seem to be peaceful. There is nothing special about this park to write home about except the kind managers and the price for FHU in the area. This park is about 8 miles form Pagosa Springs. We camped at Happy Camper RV Park in a Motorhome.

Centennial RV Park and Campground, Montrose, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Very detailed explanation about the park and amenities of the area at check-in. We were escorted to our site and told that we should only plug into the receptacle when the breakers are off. Was shown where to hook up our water, and the sewer hole was pointed out too. After 12 years as full-timers, it is always nice to get obvious information. Sites are very wide and spacious pull-thrus and nicely spaced. Water pressure was about 45 psi, 50/30/15 amp electric available. They only honor PA for one night. Checkout is at 11:00 am. At 10:35 am, one of the managers came by and asked if we were leaving soon, and said that he hadn't seen any activity and that he needed this site at 11:00. We were running a bit late, but in all of our time full timing, we've never been hounded to get out. We left at 11:09.....had some jack issues. During the day, there is quite a bit of traffic noise, but at night it is pretty quiet. We camped at Centennial RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Lake Sawyer RV Resort, Black Diamond, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The lady in the office who allowed us to look at what we thought would be the best site for our needs; she was wonderful, but nothing else was wonderful about our stay there. The voltage was so low (98v) that we couldn't use our air conditioner, our microwave or any other appliances at certain times of the day. The water pressure was so low (about 20 psi) that the only way to take a decent shower was to also use our onboard pump. If you need satellite TV, this place has tons of trees so beware. Many of the tree limbs are very low and brushed against our motorhome. Also the trees shed and had to sweep all of the slide toppers etc. On the way out of the park, the road has been made extremely bumpy by protruding tree roots under the blacktop; we tried to proceed at an idle, but the dishes inside took a beating. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Finding RV spots in the Seattle/Black Diamond/Covington area are tough to find, and that is one of the many reasons this OLD park doesn't do any improvements....Obviously, they have a huge piece of land in a very ideal location near many expensive houses.

Sunrise Resorts-Pier Four, Moses Lake, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

New management that decided to treat members as second class citizens because we only paid $1/night as Platinum members. (BTW, we pay over $350/year dues to Sunrise Resorts). She said they didn't have a pull-through site. She lied, there were 6 sites in the two rows in front of us for several days and did not have anyone occupying them, and this was during the 4th of July week. We were put in a site where the traffic was loud, no security from the park across the freeway walkway. Water pressure dropped dramatically during peak times, I measured 25 psi. Site in the 300's are very narrow, we woke in the morning to an RV that parked during the night and was only 6 inches from hitting our rig. Lots of long termers who do not follow the rules of keeping a clean camp site. Twice a week, they water down your RV with the sprinkler system, but won't let you wash your own vehicle....make no logical sense. Oh forgot, the trash dumpsters were way full all the time....laundry was dirty. The swimming pool is disgusting, my PH test strip showed the water to be way out of balance, I wouldn't dare get in that water. Had power voltage fluctuations. This place has lost our business until there is new management, and we will not ever recommend it to any of our friends. The best tip I can give anyone is to find another RV park in the area. This place does not deserve your money. We camped at Sunrise Resorts-Pier Four in a Motorhome.

Joe's Valley Reservoir Campground (USFS), Orangeville, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

The $5 rate reflects a half-price from using our senior pass. Most sites are level, but a single site was a bit narrow for our motorhome. Beware of a few branches that need a bit of pruning, but no problem for paying attention type driving....Many double sites for ATV/OHV machines as this is great access for the Arapeen Trail system. The campground has a very pleasing manner in the way it is laid out, the deer love it too. There are a few water spigots around. Very quiet during the middle of the week at night. We camped at Joe's Valley Reservoir Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

Elks Lodge #1053 (Members Only), Montrose, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Welcome to the Good-Ol'-Boys Club. 6 electric-only sites. Un-level, very wide gravel sites. Good 50/30 amp power. Trees block any overhead satellite signal. In the bar they talked about the big plans to renovate these gravel sites......Pretty obvious they aren't RVers by listening to their plans. Their main issue was that the lodge was aging and they needed to generate more money and an improved RV Park would be their cash cow. This place at $15 is a rip-off. No fire ring, table or pad and no sewer available. We camped at Elks Lodge #1053 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Hidden Valley RV Resort, Tijeras, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

As stated before, this is NOT a resort, but be prepared to pay the resort fee. The website shows a beautiful office building with fence and hand rails; we'll they're not there now. Very misleading photographs. If you like dust, this is the place for you!! Even though the speed limit is 5 mph, residents and employees drive at excessive speeds throwing up dirt and dust on the terrible rough roads.....a real challenge getting a large motorhome in and out. The entrance to the park.....well, we missed it and had to turn around and even then, the sign showing the way was small and on the ground. Laundry facilities, all four washers worked, and only 2 of the 4 dryers worked. The signage to get to your site was terrible. Actually had to go to the top site, and figure out which side of the road the sign belonged on so as to not park in the wrong spot. The water here is terrible. Our TDS tester showed TDS to be around 400, it should be at 006. Water pressure was low, 50 amp power had the correct voltage. Figuring out where to plug in, and where to dump in a full hookup site...well, you have to use your own best judgement. Close to Albuquerque shopping. We camped at Hidden Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Mikesell Potts Recreation Area, Buffalo, Wyoming

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

Great stop-over during some real rainy weather. 50 amp power, no water, now sewer. Great views of the lake. 7 electric sites. Parking was a bit difficult as the electric sites are not level. Red gravel has been used in site for leveling, but not well done. Many non-hookup sites that are very nice. The bonus is that this is real close to the action in Buffalo which is very close bye. We camped at Mikesell Potts Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Lake Sawyer RV Resort, Black Diamond, Washington

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

Pretty obvious what is going on in this park. The owners are turning the member's sites into and long-term sites rented by the month with FHU, leaving the members with non sewer sites. Heard the county will not allow them to upgrade the sewer sites, so owners are getting by waiting for the value of the land to skyrocket. 30 amp power was low voltage. Water pressure was at a meager 30 psi. We were stacked close on both sides, couldn't use awnings. Satellite coverage is very tough to acquire. The picnic table was in such poor shape it fell apart while trying to move it a few feet. Many tight turns with low tree branches, even at the dump station. Dump station was full when we got there. Lots of full time dwellers with lots of junk. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tall Chief RV & Camping Resort - Thousand Trails, Fall City, Washington

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

This campground is all trees. Tree limbs on sites are a real problem and staff doesn't really make any effort to control them. If you want to use a satellite dish, you have to know before you park where those sites that offer a clear sky are located. We fought dust the whole time there even though there are signs everywhere posting the speed limit of 5 mph for all campers! We had no problem with the 30 amp power, but we were lucky and were there when we didn't need a heater or an air conditioner. What we really like best about this park is the quiet.....until someone left their dog tied up two rows away and went to work leaving the dog barking most of the day.

The hosts are wonderful, unfortunately, the sites are very small. For some reason, they feel the need to water the lawn by your site on Tuesday morning. This of course put water spots all over my RV, so beware. The 50 amp power was good with proper voltage, water pressure was adequate and sewer on each site.
