Shoreline RV Park & Campground, Crescent City, California

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

We stayed 2 nights to visit nearby NPS sites. The park is a short drive off US101 along paved city streets that were in poor condition. The park is located in town close to services. It's on the beach but the seawall is an obstacle to reaching the beach. The interior roads are gravel with turns sufficient to maneuver larger RV's without much problem. The sites are a mixture of pull-ins, back-ins & P/T's. The site parking pads are gravel. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as most of the sites were level and flat but some had a slope. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the middle of the sites. The sewer connection was above ground so it was difficult to establish a downhill flow depending on discharge point. There was a wooden outside table. No fire pits. Distance established privacy between the sites. There appeared to be some extended stay sites throughout the park. No obstacles to satellite reception. The park information showed 24 cable channels but made no mention of broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any OTA channels. The park provided WiFi was password protect with adequate reception. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception. No designated fenced pet area. No bag dispensers and waste collection stations for waste in the park but there were several dumpsters in the center of the park. However, the dumpsters were full making it difficult to throw anything away. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads & the nearby walking path. But there were some homeless camps along the path. The park selectively enforced their own rules. There was an unposted 5 MPH speed limit (sign was knocked down by the wind) that was enforced by video surveillance based upon the amount of dust generated regardless of the wind speed. We camped at Shoreline RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Suntides Golf Course RV Park, Yakima, Washington

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

We wanted to stay 3 nights to visit the nearby national park so we made reservations 3 weeks ahead of our arrival by phone. No confirmation number was given for the reservation but confirmed the dates multiple times before ending the conversation. When we arrived as scheduled, we were not on the arrivals list. All of the sites were full. The clerk asked for the name of the person who took the reservation. Don't know what good that would do as it wouldn't resolve the error in the reservation. The same for a confirmation number. Our reservation was entered for the following month. Only an apology was offered for the mistake. Had to call around to find another park.

Even though we didn't stay here, we did get to see the park as we had to drive through it to get out. The roads were sufficient to maneuver our 41' MH with a towed. The sites appeared fairly level but there didn't seem to be much room between them. And from the collection of items at several sites, there seemed to be a lot of long term residents. There were some trees that could create an obstacle to satellite reception.

The park is a short distance from town requiring a drive rather than a walk. The park is off a 4 lane divided highway at a light controlled intersection so it isn't that difficult to get out.

Probably did better staying at another location over this one. We camped at Suntides Golf Course RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you choose to go here, make reservations as the park is small. No way to confirm your reservation is accurately entered and there is nothing if the reservation is fouled up. The only safeguard to ensure your reservation is the park calls you a day before to confirm your arrival. But by then you may still not have a site. But at least you won't drive there to find out your reservation was fouled up!

Life Northwest RV & Lodging (formerly River Life Resort), Harrisburg, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 4 nights for RV appointments in the area. It appears a church purchased a closed RV park & removed most of the park to install the church facilities, parking lot & a motel. What remains is an older aging basic park that needs some updating to the infrastructure. The park is a short drive from US 99E along a city street. It is located in town but Harrisburg is small with only limited services. The interior roads are paved. They wind through a church parking lot to reach the office then back through the parking lot to reach your site. Some of the turns are tight making maneuvering larger RV's a little challenging. Most of the sites are back-ins with only 4 P/T's. The P/T sites looked long enough to say connected to a toad. The staff described use of the P/T's requires shuffling around until one opens up. The RV sites are narrow & there isn't much distance between the sites but there was sufficient room to open slides. The parking pads are concrete some of which are breaking up. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were generally level and flat but some had a slight slope. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the middle of the sites. The sewer connection was at ground level making it easy to establish a downhill flow depending on discharge point. Sites offer no amenities & little outdoor space. Fires are prohibited but there is a common fire pit on the SW side of the grounds. Distance establishes privacy between the sites. Site orientation of some sites allows RV's to cast shade onto the patio side. The landscaping is new but there is an existing line of trees on the South side of the grounds which could interfere with satellite reception depending on site assignment & dish configuration. No cable. The park brochure made no mention of broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any OTA channels. We camped at Life Northwest RV & Lodging (formerly River Life Resort) in a Motorhome.

Seven Feathers RV Park, Canyonville, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $50.00

We stayed 2 nights to see an attraction in the area. This was our second stay. The park is short a drive from I-5 (Exit 99) along secondary road. The interior roads are paved. The interior roads and turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's. There is an escort to your site. There is a mixture of back-ins & P/T sites.

The sewer connection was above ground making it difficult to establish a downhill flow depending on discharge point. Sites have an outside table but no fire pits as open fires are prohibited. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. Site orientation of most sites doesn't allow RV's to cast shade onto the patio side. The landscape vegetation has matured from our last visit so satellite reception would be dependent upon your site & dish configuration. The park brochure listed 24 cable channels but didn't mention anything about broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any OTA channels. The park provided WiFi was acceptable even with the park being full. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was one designated fenced pet area with a bark surface located on one side of the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area & around the park. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads. We camped at Seven Feathers RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 3 nights for to see some attractions in the area. The park is a short drive from US 101 (42nd St) along a city street. It is located in town close to services. The interior roads are concrete. They are narrow with parked vehicle encroachment & tight turns making maneuvering larger RV's a little challenging. There is a mixture of back-ins & P/T's sites.

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

We stayed 2 nights to see nearby NPS sites. The park has a 3 night maximum stay limit. The park is located in town close to services. The best access is off of Crest St when the gates are unlocked. The interior roads are a mixture of pavement & gravel. They are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's. The sites have P/T access contingent on other site usage. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad. The parking pads are gravel. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were generally level and flat but there was shallow swale near the utility connections. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The sites were large enough to select the utility connection placement. The sewer connection was above ground making it difficult to establish a downhill flow depending on discharge point. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. Distance established privacy between the sites. Sites didn't have an outside table or fire pits as open fires are prohibited. Site orientation didn't allow RV's to cast shade onto the patio side. Very few trees so there was nothing to interfere with satellite reception. No cable. The park brochure made no mention of broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any OTA channels. No park provided WiFi. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. No designated fenced pet area. There was 1 bag dispenser and collection station for waste at the self registration station. There were garbage cans around the RV area for waste & trash. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads & grounds. Preferred arrival time is during office hours: Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

We stayed 3 nights for RV appointments in the area over the 4th of July holiday. The park is a short drive from US 95 (Airport Way Exit) along city streets. It is located in town close to services. The interior roads are paved. They are narrow with parked vehicle encroachment & tight turns making maneuvering larger RV's a little challenging. There is a mixture of back-ins, P/T's and tent sites. A few of P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad. The RV sites are narrow & there isn't much distance between the sites but there was sufficient room to open slides. The parking pads are concrete. The site layout puts extra vehicle parking space on the driver's side. This configuration puts your towed vehicle directly in the way of the neighbor's table & outside area. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were generally level and flat. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the middle of the sites. The sewer connection was above ground making it difficult to establish a downhill flow depending on discharge point. Sites have an outside table & BBQ grill but no fire pits as open fires are prohibited. Site orientation doesn't allow RV's to cast shade onto the patio side. The landscaping is new so there is nothing to interfere with satellite reception yet. No cable. The park brochure made no mention of broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any OTA channels. No park provided WiFi. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. No designated fenced pet area.

Southern Oregon RV Park (Jackson County Park), Central Point, Oregon

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

We stayed 3 different times over several months. This area was in desperate need of a new park, but due to the design layout and development of this park it falls short of filling the need. The park is visible and a short drive from I-5 (Exit 33) along a secondary street. The problems begin upon entering the park. The office is past the entrance & several rows of campsites with registration parking on either side of the office which could result in extra passes thru the park to reach your site and exit. The interior roads & parking pads are paved. The roads & turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's but there are tire tracks in the grassy areas along the sites and signs warning to stay on the pavement. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and P/T's. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad unless you want to connect to utilities & don't have long cords/hoses. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides but there will be some vegetation encroachment. The majority of the parking pads face East so no shade created by RV's on the patio side & possibly extra passes thru the park to reach your site and exit. This park doesn't seem to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad as the majority of the park was built on a slope & there was no effort made to level or tier the parking pads so a lot of the pads have a bi-directional slope. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the rear of the sites. The sewer connection fitting was above ground & in a large majority of the sites on the uphill side making it difficult to establish a downhill flow depending on the discharge point. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. All sites have an outside table & fire pits. Stay limitation of 14 days in a 30 day period. The landscaping is new so there is nothing to interfere with satellite reception. Most of the premium sites are closest to the interstate but surprisingly quiet. Reservation fee: $8/online & $10/phone. Laundry: 2 washers & dryers - cost was $1.50 each. We camped at Southern Oregon RV Park (Jackson County Park) in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our second and third stay. A couple of nights passing through the area and 3 nights to visit nearby attractions. There was a slight improvement from our first visit. The park is a short drive from I-5 (Exit 649: Antelope Rd) along paved roads. The intersection of Antelope & East Ave is pitched making the turn interesting. And East Av is a rather narrow residential road. The sites are a mixture of back-ins along two sides and P/T's in the middle. There was an escort to the site. Extended stay sites seemed to be spread out between the back-ins and P/T's. The interior roads are paved. The site parking pads are concrete with a gentle transition from the road to the pad. The interior roads and turns are wide enough to negotiate without much problem. The P/T sites were long enough for coaches & their toads. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as most of the sites were level and flat. The site orientation allowed RV's to cast shade onto the patio side. Only a handful required blocking to get level. Saw one motorhome with its' wheels off the ground. Curbside garbage pickup. There are a few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. The park brochure showed about 61 cable channels but made no mention of broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi is through TengoInternet so you have to register an account to use it if you don't have one. Reception was good but occupancy was low. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception. The designated fenced pet areas were on either side of the park. They had a decomposed granite surface. There was a bag dispenser and waste collection station in the fenced pet area for waste. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. We camped at Durango RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 4 nights to visit several nearby NPS sites. The park is a short drive from I-82 (Exit 109) along secondary streets. While it is close to town, accessing services require a drive. There are 3 types of sites (Regular, Deluxe & Supreme) which offer different parking options & amenities. The interior roads are paved. The roads and turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's but the only place to connect toads for back in sites is on the main roads which would interfere with traffic. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and P/T's. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides as the landscape vegetation is new. This park didn't seem to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad as part of the park was built on a slope & there was some effort made to level or tier the parking pads but some of the pads require blocking to get level. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the middle of the sites. The sewer connection fitting was above ground making it difficult to establish a downhill flow depending on the discharge point. Privacy between the sites depended on the type of site. Orientation of some sites allowed RV's to create shade on passenger side. The landscape vegetation is new so there is nothing to interfere with satellite reception. The park brochure showed 46 channels but no mention of broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any OTA channels. The park provided WiFi was weak & password protected. Only saw 1 transceiver on the main building. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell reception. There were 2 designated fenced pet areas with a grass surface located on either side of the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet areas & around the park. We camped at Columbia Sun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We wanted to stay 3 nights to visit the nearby national park so we tried to make reservations on line but the website wasn't working correctly. We emailed the park directly but never received a reply. Because our reservation at another park was fouled up, we had to find a site when we arrived in the area. Fortunately, there was a site available for the 3 nights we needed as there aren't many options in the area. The park is located in town. It is a short drive from I-82 (Exit 33 or 34) along secondary streets. The park was undergoing some road work so there were some rough obstacles to overcome but the project was being finished on the day we departed. The interior roads & back in parking pads are paved. The interior roads and turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and P/T's. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad as most of the them were level but some required blocking. The camp loops (sites 17 - 36) have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the center of the sites. The sewer connection fitting was at ground level making it easy to establish a downhill flow depending on the discharge point. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. All sites have an outside table & fire pits. Orientation of the sites caused some not to have any shade on passenger side. The camp loop sites had a few trees that could interfere with satellite reception depending on site assignment and dish configuration. The P/T's were under an extensive tree canopy making satellite reception difficult at best. No cable. The park information didn't mention anything about broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. No park provided WiFi. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone. We camped at Yakima Sportsman State Park in a Motorhome.

Pear Tree RV Resort, Phoenix, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

Having stayed here before, we had to stay here 1 night as there weren't many options to choose from in this area. This stay was worst than previous stays. The park is a short drive from I-5 (Exit 24: Fern Valley / North Phoenix Rd) along multi-lane busy roads. There is major interchange construction so access is changing during the project. The park is located behind the motel. Registration is in the motel's office. The majority of the sites appeared to be LONG term. The condition of the long term sites really impacts the overall appearance of the park. One of the term tenants appeared to be park maintenance. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and P/T's. The interior roads and sites are paved. The few P/T's that were available are angled so there are easily accessed. But there are some trees at the exit end of the sites which are growing so they are starting to encroach on the lane of travel. The interior roads and turns are adequate that we didn't need to disconnect the toad until we got into the site but we disconnected to make getting in easier. The P/T sites were long enough for coaches & their toads. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were level and flat. Distance and a short fence around the utility connections establish privacy between the sites but there isn't much privacy as the sites are close to each other. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were easily accessed. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. The sites have a metal table but no campfire ring. There are a few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment, your dish configuration and the time of year. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was adequate. The access point was located in the pool area. We camped at Pear Tree RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed a couple of nights passing through the area. This was our third stay. No changes from our last visit. Still a nice park even with the few weaknesses it has. The park is a short drive from HWY 99 (Exit 170: Roberts Rd/26th Ave) along paved, 2 lane roads. The park has gated access so you're given a remote to open the gate. The sites are a mixture of back-ins along the outer edge or pull-ins around the lake and P/T's. The back-ins and pull-ins seemed to be the extended stay sites. The interior roads are paved. The site parking pads are concrete but there is significant bump to transition from the road to the pad similar to driving over a curb. Several of the parking pads are experiencing broken concrete. The interior roads and turns are wide enough to negotiate without much problem. The parking pads are narrow. The P/T sites were long enough for coaches & their toads. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were level and flat. Distance or hedge rows establishes privacy between the sites. There are manicured grass lawns with the sites and throughout the park. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. There were multiple utility connections hidden in the hedge rows which made accessing them difficult requiring a lot of hose/cord. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Seem to remember there being an outside table. Only a few of the sites had fire pits but there was a common fire pit at the clubhouse. Curbside garbage pickup. There are a few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. The park brochure show 24 channel cable line but made no mention of broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Cachuma Lake Recreation Area, Santa Barbara, California

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $40.00

The park has all types of spaces but this review refers to the full hook up area which use to be a trailer park. It was built on a slope but there was no attempt to tier or level the sites so most if not all have some type of slope requiring some sort of blocking to get level. The interior roads are paved & wide enough to maneuver larger RV's. All of the sites are back-ins. The parking pads are broken concrete in poor condition. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. The full hook ups include water, sewer & electricity. Most all of the sites are 30 AMP. Only a handful have 50 AMP service. Those are difficult to find and use as the park doesn't assign them you have to ask for them. The sewer connections were generally at the ground level so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. It seems most of the sites had an outside table but no fire rings/pits. The park offers extended stay rates. From about November to mid March there was no lawn care so the grass got very high making the sites difficult to use. There were quite a few trees scattered throughout the park and around the perimeter so satellite reception would be dependent upon your site. No cable. Only 5 Broadcast channels received with roof mounted antenna which included only 1 of 4 major networks. The park experienced a 3 day power outage in January when night time temperatures were forecasted to get down below freezing. It was difficult to get much information from the park staff as they were difficult to find and did not go around to the few campers to update or even check on them. The designated fenced pet area but it was in a far corner of the park making it a long walk from the full hook up area. Plus the surface was dry grass making it uninviting to walk a dog. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area but the dispensers were empty. Very poor considering the park charges a $5 fee per pet per night. We camped at Cachuma Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Valencia Travel Village, Castaic, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $45.00

We stayed 2 nights to see some of the sights in the area. The park is right along CA-126 a short distance from I-5. The access is at a controlled intersection. The entrance was changed due to construction so there are some tight turns to reach the registration parking area. The interior roads are paved with some very impressive speed bumps. The interior roads are very narrow and turns are tight with obstacles (metal poles at the end of the sites) making it difficult to maneuver larger RV's. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and pull thrus. The parking pads are compacted dirt/gravel. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were generally level and flat. A lot of the sites appear to be extended stay sites. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites which are on top of each other. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The connections were at the end of the site requiring long runs for hoses/cables and to disconnect a toad to shorten the runs. The sewer connection was slightly elevated so there was a slight obstacle to establishing a downhill flow. Not every site had an outside table and there were no fire pits.

There were quite a few trees scattered throughout the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon your site. The park information showed a 24 channel lineup but didn't mention anything broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was good. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception.

There was one designated fenced pet areas with a grass surface located in the center of the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area and around the park.

We would probably not stay here again if traveling through the area. We camped at Valencia Travel Village in a Motorhome.

While the park is adjacent to a 4 lane divided highway, it was very quiet. We made a day trip into LA.
