Vines RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $78.00
Overall Rating:      

My wife and I selected The Vines as the inaugural destination for a newly purchased 5th wheel, and it turned out to be an outstanding choice. Our pull-thru site was well landscaped with discrete hedges and fragrant smelling trees. The site's surface reminded us of textured slate and was superbly level. The inherent road noise from adjoining Highway 101 was noticeable but not so loud as to disturb our sleep. Sites are also quite wide and long enough to accommodate the largest motorhomes and trailers. Interior roads are wide enough to make backing in very convenient. Two dog areas are provided and are very well maintained.

The Vines has two swimming pools, one for adults and the other for families. Even though the weather was in the mid-nineties during our late September stay, the pools and were lightly used, even though they were pristinely maintained. The hot tub was popular with the more longterm guests.

On the recreational side, winery visits are highly promoted as well jaunts to local breweries, especially the immensely popular Firestone-Walker brewery in Paso Robles. In addition, picturesque cities like Pismo Beach, Cayucos, Morro Bay and Cambria are no more than 30-40 minutes away.

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Vines and plan on making a return trip in the near future. We camped at Vines RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Bridgeview RV Resort, Grants Pass, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We spent four leisurely days at Bridgeview RV in Rogue River. We were greeted effusively by the very knowledgeable managers, Georgia and Al who provided us with a ton of very useful southern Oregon literature. In making the phone reservation, Georgia had asked what we were interested in doing during our stay, and the brochures she provided were tailored to those interests (fly fishing, Shakespearean plays in Ashland, and notable wineries).

During the check-in process, I could see that I may have made a mistake in pulling my 5th wheel up to the office. When departing the office area, we barely fit between a motorhome and fifth wheel that seemed to belong to permanent residents residing within 25 feet of the office. Close...very close quarters. Even being guided to our pull-thru spot (#29), we dodged numerous parked vehicles adjacent to their RVs. The helpful guide maneuvered us into our spot with relatively little difficulty. Bridgeview seems to have very few sites for short term RVers, but those sites parallel to the Rogue River are gorgeous! Even with the ever present road noise from Interstate 5, we very much enjoyed our stay.

With a little jockeying we got a good satellite TV signal. Water pressure was very good, but the wifi was very sketchy along the river sites. A lush pet area with beautiful flowers and shrubbery rounds out Bridgeview RV. All in all, we would return to Bridgeview when traveling through southern Oregon. We camped at Bridgeview RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Apache Palms RV Park, Tempe, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Our fourth spring stay at Apache Palms has remained remarkably consistent. The RV park is well maintained and the management is very friendly and accommodating. The park has revamped its WiFi with several transmission locations. When the WiFi worked, it was excellent; however, during our stay the company that actually provides the Internet service was constantly attempting to get the system to work reliably. On another note, more security seems to be in place at Apache Palms and that is much appreciated.

The laundry and shower areas are well maintained. The same can be said for the pool and spa areas. Even though the pool is relatively small, the water temperature is perfect for just about any external temperature.

What my wife and I look forward to is camaraderie among the people staying here. In the spring, many are visiting the area for spring training baseball, so you see banners supporting the Giants, Angels, Cubs, etc. Unlike other venues we've been to recently, the short term and long term occupants are very congenial.

Hopefully we'll be back again next year! We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

JGW RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

JGW has an absolutely pristine clean appearance as one enters the RV park. Pull-thru spots, however, are a bit funky to get through. We had to pull through one site to get our to our alleged pull-thru. One spot backs up another site, so if the one spot were occupied, our pull-thru would have become a back in. The office computer apparently keeps track of the possibilities at JGW. Since no one was in the thru-slot, we were able to move right into our site.

A small distance from our location was the gorgeous Sacramento River, moving leisurely past JGW. Otters could be seen frolicking in the shallows.

I think almost all sites have full hookups. Highway noise is very minimal so a good night's sleep was assured. Our only complaint might have been that the WiFi was very weak to nonexistent at our camp spot. Our neighbors had an outdoor television connected to the park's cable system and the picture appeared to be very good. We opted for a satellite connection with our Dish Tailgater.

JGW was the last stop on our return trip from British Columbia and would definitely be worth another visit when a longer stay could be arranged. We camped at JGW RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Premier RV Resorts of Eugene Oregon, Coburg, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Premier RV Resort in Eugene caters to high end RVs. We were bookended by a large motorhome and a forty foot 5th wheel. Enough space existed between the other RVs by a large portion of perfectly manicured grass so the two vehicles were unobtrusive. The wi-fi in the park was very good and we had no trouble getting online. Also, the spaces are wide-open enough to allow portable satellite dishes to be easily set up.

After registration we were guided to our site by Bob, an employee, on a golf cart. He was full of helpful information about the RV park and surrounding area and this was much appreciated.

Noise from Interstate 5 was minimal. We were tired after having to wade through Seattle area traffic's stops and starts because of the president of China's visit to the Northwest. I guess taking a helicopter was out of the question; Interstate 5 was stopped for 17 miles in both directions so one person and his retinue could get securely into Seattle.

Enough grousing. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend Premier to fellow travelers who would appreciate a superior RV park and beautiful surroundings. We camped at Premier RV Resorts of Eugene Oregon in a Fifth Wheel.

Whistler RV Park and Campground, Whistler, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

First impressions are important but not necessarily final. Upon arrival at 1:00 pm, we found the Whistler RV Park locked up with a local phone number to call. Thank heavens for OnStar since our Verizon cell phones had no service. After a 5 minute wait, a stoic attendant opened the office and confirmed our reservation.

Our pull-thru spot at the far end of the RV park was gravelly but fairly level. Water pressure was somewhat low but useable. Electricity was steady and wi-fi was very good for a wide open facility. Satellite users had no trouble in gaining a signal. Also, the numerous RVs had an acceptable 25 feet of separation between units. Each site had a crude fire ring, with many users opting to create their own fire area or to use a rented fire bowl.

If you like get-away-from-it-all forested camping, Whistler RV Park is a fabulous location. A late September reservation, of course, runs the risk of inclement weather; it rained every day of our stay. Interestingly, the rainy weather did not deter the numerous off-road quad users as they sped through the park to their various (wet) destinations.

All things considered, we enjoyed our stay and the park's close proximity to both Whistler and Squamish. If we visit the area again, we'll chose a drier season. We camped at Whistler RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedars RV Park, Ferndale, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We used Cedars RV Park as our final stop before crossing the border into British Columbia. The young lady who checked us in provided helpful local information and in arranging for us to get our propane tanks filled. Seemingly, the price to stay is a bit spendy when you add in a fee for wi-fi and cable television, neither of which we needed to use.

The actual RV sites are spacious whether in a pull-thru or back-in and are well separated by well kept foliage. Spaciousness is usually a great quality, but in our case we had reverse course a few feet when it came to leave since our sewer hose was not long enough to reach sewer connection...certainly not a big deal. Highway noise was minimal from Interstate 5. In addition, Cedars RV has a beautiful pool and exceptionally clean laundry facility.

We found Cedars so convenient to the highway that we will stay here again on our trip back from Canada. We camped at Cedars RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Olde Stone Village RV Park, McMinnville, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Olde Stone Village is one of the nicest RV facilities my wife and I have stayed in in many years of RVing travels. The RV spaces are very ample in width and length. Most of the sites are pull-thrus and are super easy to enter and exit. The pool and restroom areas are spotlessly clean. Service personnel work busily throughout the day to maintain the pristine quality of the facility. Grassy areas surround the RV park and a huge dog run area is available at the park's south end. Cable television works well with many channels to choose from; satellite users have plenty of open sky to point their antennae.

Without doubt, one of the highlights of the area is the Evergreen Air Museum, home to the famous Spruce Goose, is a must visit for young and old alike. Where else can you find elements of the U.S. space programs along with World War II classic aircraft?

When checking in to Olde Stone Village, make sure and peruse the available area brochures if interested in wine tasting, golfing, and other recreational activities. The receptionists are a treasure trove of information as well and can suggest excellent restaurants in the area as well as any RV services that might be needed. We camped at Olde Stone Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bandon By The Sea RV Park, Bandon, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

I might have rated Bandon by the Sea RV Park another mark higher, but the original site I reserved was given to another RV, and so I had to take a site squeezed between an old bus-type RV and a very spiffy looking Big Sky 5th wheel. Both gentlemen RV owners were garrulous very thoughtful in offering to make minor adjustments for an less stressful egress. Most sites in this RV park are occupied by full time occupants who do keep their rigs up very well and were quite friendly. Restrooms are adequately spaced and the water pressure situation was very good. My satellite dish was obstructed by trees (nor surprise in Oregon), but the cable tv hookup was very good. Check-in went fairly smoothly, but from the tone and actions of the lady doing the registration, shifting of customer reservations seems like a common occurrence. All things considered, I would return if a site reservation were assured. We camped at Bandon By The Sea RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ancient Redwoods RV Park, Redcrest, California

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

What a friendly, genuine greeting upon arrival at Ancient Redwoods RV Park. We got a thorough introduction to the surrounding area attractions as well as a fabulous guide book. Our pull-thru site had water with excellent pressure, electricity, cable television, and an RV dump receptacle. The site length(s) in all the spots we saw could accommodate the largest of motorhomes and 5th wheel trailers. Site width is excellent as well. The motorhome parked next to us was about 25 feet away, allowing for decent privacy. Satellite TV reception was no problem in the pull-thru sites. In the 2015 drought months, one might wish for a cooling swimming pool, but, alas, there wasn't one. Other than that, Ancient Redwoods RV Park comes highly recommended! We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Casini Ranch Family Campground, Duncans Mills, California

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

We booked a stay for one night at Casini Ranch Family Campground. The appeal of this campground is the beauty of the surrounding area--the Russian River with its various activities, the solitude not found in less rural settings, and the quaintness of nearby towns Jenner and Monte Rio.

Check-in went smoothly albeit somewhat slowly. When we did make it to our camp spot, service personnel were working feverishly to restore electricity to the campground that had apparently been out for some time after the Labor Day holiday. Within 30 minutes of our arrival, the electrical issue was solved.

The premium full hookup sites are long enough for most motorhomes and trailers, but the width could be improved. With three slide-outs, our 5th wheel leveling legs were partially on gravel and partially on the cement pad. A nice fire pit accompanies each campsite. We did not use the cable television hookup, opting for satellite dish use. The campground's wi-fi, while a bit slow, is free for one day's use; after that you'll have to pay. Verizon cell signal is very good. Also, as others have noted this campground can be quite dusty.

Casini Ranch Campground is probably much better for a multiple day stay since getting to it off Highway 101 is definitely off the beaten path. The River Road route to the campground is scenic as is the occasional glimpses of the Russian River. This campground might be worth another visit if we plan on staying more than one day. We camped at Casini Ranch Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sam's Family Spa, Desert Hot Springs, California

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at Sam's on several occasions over the last 10 years. Winter guests might call it a destination RV facility, and no doubt many do if one looks at the numerous northerly license plates on RVs. For us, however, Sam's is just an overnight or two-day stay, usually traveling to or from Arizona.

On a positive note, the pool and spa area are superbly maintained. The landscaping in the pool area shows a lot of creativity and desert ambiance. The water is pleasantly warm in the cool months. The four spas have varying temperatures--all quite conducive to relaxation.

The RV spots vary in desirability, however. Some sites are reasonably level for a dirt and gravel park. On our latest stay, the automatic leveling system in my fifth wheel had to go through many iterations to get the job done! Another issue has to do with the declining water pressure at Sam's. Perhaps the overall water table has declined as a result of the California drought. Nevertheless, our Girard tankless water heater had some difficulty just producing hot water within the RV due to low water pressure.

For the most part the staff at Sam's is very welcoming and quite pleasant to deal with, the only exception being a woman who makes it seem like she's doing a major favor to accept your business.

We like the desert area but would recommend Sam's consider upgrading their RV sites as other parks/resorts in the area have done. We camped at Sam's Family Spa in a Fifth Wheel.

Eagle View RV Resort, Fort Mcdowell, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Except for the intense summer heat, we very much enjoyed staying at Eagle View RV Resort. Entry into the park was quite easy with ample parking space for check-in. The one-person office staff was very friendly and helpful in pointing out the RV resort's amenities--pool, spa, computer room, continental breakfast, and exercise room. Our camp spot was along the fenced river border. Because of the time of year (late June) the whole RV park area was eerily quiet with only about 25 RVs in the 150 space facility. Our only "visitor" was a roadrunner wandering aimlessly. All spaces are back-in, but the amount of room to do so makes the task very easy. The distance between campsites is about 25 feet. The friendly, professional security force patrols frequently during the evening hours. Outside Eagle's Nest, a short drive can lead to many interesting recreational activities--Phoenix, Fountain Hills, the Goldfield ghost town, and the touristy Tortilla Flat. In the spring months, reservations are very hard to obtain and must be obtained months in advance. We camped at Eagle View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

San Francisco RV Resort, Pacifica, California

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the third year I have been coming (periodically) to SF RV Resort primarily because its proximity to San Francisco’s numerous activities. That said, the “resort” (it’s not really a resort in any sense of the word) has shown clear signs of deterioration over the last two years. Ongoing plumbing issues have wreaked havoc within the RV park, disrupting the water supply and the quality of cable television service. I complained about the cable tv service and got an “oh...well” shoulder shrug from a groundsman and an affable young man at the front desk. Internet service is strong sometimes and nonexistent on other occasions. Mother Nature plays a part in this review. Erosion has wiped out the prime ocean view sites. While the management cannot control this situation, the price for a night’s stay has not been adjusted. And, for what it’s worth, the weather here is windy and overcast about 95% of the time. The groundskeepers do a very good job in keeping SF RV Resort reasonably clean and attractive; however, numerous full time RVs with their rusting exteriors and junky sites detract from the RV park’s esthetic. These units are on the southeast side. The other two area RV alternatives do not merit consideration because of their abysmal reviews, so that means to get close to San Francisco in an RV you’re probably going to be staying at San Francisco RV Resort. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
