Olde Stone Village RV Park, McMinnville, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

This is a highly rated park in Oregon's wine country area. It's unique in that one half of the park is park model's and permanent residents, and the other is all rent-able RV sites. The sites are all paved and have concrete patio areas. The only problem I had at the site was that while the site was long enough for the rig, the patio was towards the back. There was a nice lush grass area at each site as well, but I have learned that it usually means that the park does frequent watering to maintain that lush grass. I tried jockeying the rig back and forth trying to reach a happy medium between getting the entry door of the rig to be on cement, and still be able to access the bay doors on the drivers side. The RV pads are a bit close with no real barrier between you and your neighbor, but sites are well taken care of. There are good size shade trees on most sites that we really appreciated on sunny afternoons, as the sun was on our patio side. But the trees tend to be planted at the ends of each RV site instead of the middle. I did choose to back out of the site when leaving though to avoid any possibility of scraping tree branches down the side of the rig. The sites across road angled opposite from ours and would have had afternoon shade. They had a pool and a small workout room. Right next to the park is the "Evergreen Museum" which is a Aviation and Space Museum, and is the current home of Howard Hughes' plane the Spruce Goose. Included in one of the museum buildings is an indoor water park that has a full size airplane on the roof. The plane is an actual functional part of the water park, and two of the water slides are started by climbing to the top and entering through the hull of the plane. Pretty amazing. The restrooms are new and handicapped accessible, but you do have to enter them going through the laundry room facility. All are kept in excellent condition. They do offer free wifi, but our T mobile air card worked great here. We camped at Olde Stone Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Premier RV Resort of Lincoln City Oregon, Lincoln City, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $67.00
Overall Rating:

The park is kind of "shoe horned" in along highway 101, and right across the road from the ocean. It is built in two levels, so many of the lower sites have no direct ocean view, and the back sites on the upper level have restricted views. We lucked into probably the best site in the park, #64. It is at the front end of the upper loop, and your patio side looks out on the water. However, the lower loop is not that low so you may also be looking right into the back of someones RV in front of you. The sites are concrete and have small patio's towards the rear of the site. There was one more rig to our right, and then their patio was adjacent to a community fire pit and mini bandstand where musicians play on the weekends. The park put out some free happy hour food, but the beverages were BYOB. The little event was cool, unless you happened to be in that site next door and weren't really into the music or the party because it was right at your front door. We had a FHU site, but the water pressure was on the low side. The sites are close together, but the park still sold out every night. We paid $67 a night. A bit on the pricey side for what you get, but this park is all about the location. There is a small gym on site, but it was tiny, and consisted of a few aerobic machines. Free Wifi was offered, but our on board router worked well. The restrooms were small but in good condition. There are 2 small dog areas in the park with small gravel surfaces. This is kind of "in town" so you are fairly close to most shopping and restaurants. The park is a good stop by kind of location, but may not have enough of an interest to spend a week or more.

Sea Perch RV Resort, Yachats, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

We reserved a beach front site which means that your site either faces (or backs up to) the ocean waves. Even though we were here in August, the weather can still be quite chilly if it overcast and the wind comes up strong. We had not been here in about 5 years, and some things had changed. One interesting one is that they have taken down several park model type cabins that they had for rent. They are in the process of converting the spaces back to RV spots, and we got one of them that was still in process of being converted. What that meant was that some of the utilities, like the electrical hook ups were still on the wrong side for a head in site. Fortunately I had enough cord on the reel to reach under the rig to the opposite side pedestal. The sewer was also way in the front of the site by the beach, so we needed about 30+ foot of sewer hose to reach the hook up. The park is rather small, 29 sites and the pads are cement and roads asphalt. The on site amenities are a club house, social area, and work out room. A grass area next to the rear sites has horseshoes and corn hole games. No pool or spa, but the beach is very close. The beach is dog friendly, and we took our dog on many walks on the sand when the wind would die down. The biggest negative for this park is a total lack of cell signal. I was able to get an occasional weak Verizon signal with the antenna and booster, but it never lasted long. The park offered Wifi, but it was sketchy and usually overloaded. The other issue here is that nothing is close. The town of Yachats is about 6 miles north on Highway 101, but most of it is twisty with sharp corners, so count on 20-30 minutes one way to get to town depending on traffic. And the town is not very big, so if you need anything special you will be going even farther. We camped at Sea Perch RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Seaquest State Park, Castle Rock, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was a FHU spot in "T" loop, site T13. It was an end site at the back of the loop, so it cut down on the passerby traffic which we like. Some of the comments we had read from other campers were accurate. Our dirt gravel pull through site was pretty unlevel and sloped backwards towards the entry point. Our first challenge was pulling into the campground. While our site was plenty long for us to put the MH and Jeep in, the interior roads and turns are extremely tight with hair pin turns and trees. To make one of the turns when pulling down a row, a nice guy in a fiver had to move his truck parked well within his site so I could complete my turn. Later when leaving exiting was just a tight, and I was glad that 3 of the sites were empty on a tight turn or I never would have made it out. And our rig is a 40', so a tag axle would really have problems here. A few other site issues was the sewer is all the way at the back of the site, so bring at least 30' of sewer hose to reach it. There was a small concrete patio at the back of the site as well but it was in full sun. Fortunately we had afternoon shade on the patio side rig. Some perfectly planted trees about 100' tall prevented any possibility of satellite reception from about anywhere in the loop. I was able to get 4 OTA channels that were digital quality and very clear. However, one was Japanese, one French, one Washington State political monitor (state senate hearings, etc.) and the other was a PBS channel that had some really odd programming. We had weak Verizon signal that dropped out and just flat failed often, but we may have been the only ones in the campground able to get any at all (due to our booster and mast antenna). The restrooms are clean and handicapped accessible. They are in good condition and have token operated showers. One token costs 50 cents and can be purchased from a machine, or a small campground store, when open. The token will give you 3 minutes of shower time. We camped at Seaquest State Park in a Motorhome.

Bakersfield River Run RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This RV park is a bit of a surprise as you drive towards it, winding through an industrial area. Then making a turn, the road dead ends into the park. The park itself is nice and well maintained. The roads are paved and the sites have a concrete patio, but the sites themselves are packed DG (decomposed granite) and dirt. The grass is nice and green but in Bakersfield that means a lot of watering, almost every night. Since the sites are DG, some of them can get a bit muddy from the constant watering. There is a nice pool and spa area, a small exercise room had a few aerobic machines but it didn't get much use. It looked like there was a fair amount of longer term residents there, but their sites were mostly clean. The "River Run" name of the park is because it backs up to the Kern river. Unfortunately it is just a dry river bed right now, and looks like it has been that way for quite a while. We did use a walking trail out the back gate of the park that stretches along the river bank and goes for a few miles. If you wanted to you could cross the river bed to a city park on the other side. Probably the biggest issue I had with the park was it's proximity to highway 99 which was always busy day or night. It seemed particularly loud and night, and could be a bit intrusive if you are a light sleeper. We made sure to get a back in site, as the pull throughs are "Jack-n-Jill" style that we really don't care for. The park restrooms were nice and handicapped accessible. The park offered Wifi, but our on board Wifi worked OK but not great. We paid $44 a night and stayed 5 nights. The weather was pretty pleasant during our stay, but it can get scorching hot come July. One nice feature was that they didn't mind if you washed your RV, which I took advantage of. We camped at Bakersfield River Run RV Park in a Motorhome.

Jackson Rancheria RV Park, Jackson, California

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

We have stayed at Jackson Rancheria several times, and it's one of our favorite campgrounds. It is very well maintained and the spaces are all cement with lush grass at each site. This time was to attend an RV rally with about 20 other rigs. We did note that all funds for the rally had to be collected by one person and paid for in advance with no refunds for no shows. Jackson Rancheria has a nicely appointed RV pool and spa area, a good size putting green with about 10 different holes. There is a walking path that surrounds the campground that is 2/3 mile in length. The restrooms are modern, clean and handicapped accessible. Wifi is offered at the park, but our on board Wifi worked well. I have to admit though, after staying at the campground several times we have yet to visit the casino. Those that have visited the casino have indicated that it too is well appointed and maintained. The casino is about a half mile from the RV park, but a free shuttle makes regular trips between the two. We paid $45 a night for our stay, but this may have been reduced somewhat due to the 20+ rigs that were part of the rally. The only minor issue that we had there was that someone crashed on a nearby road, and took out a power pole that supplied the RV park. We were without power for about 12 hours. It didn't affect us with our generator, but some folks were skimping to get by with battery power. I can highly recommend Jackson Rancheria if you are in the area. We camped at Jackson Rancheria RV Park in a Motorhome.

Angels Camp RV & Camping Resort, Angels Camp, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

This is a rustic sort of park with about 80 sites of both pull throughs and back in's. The pull through sites are longer. We were escorted to our site, and it's a good thing because we had to reject it upon seeing it. The site was long enough, but the trees between the sites really needed some trimming. I managed to pull into the site, but there was no way to open the slides without pushing them into the overhanging tree branches. Our guide was pretty understanding and called the office on his radio to get us a different site. After a bit of arm twisting by our guide, he led us to a different site that was much more open. The only drawback to the new site was that it was a group of sites that were cut into a terraced hill. The site was wide enough for the rig, but the ground naturally sloped up towards the next site. This made the outside space next to the rig too uneven to put chairs on, so we put the Jeep in back of the rig and sat in front. All the sites are gravel/dirt so there is a bit of dust. We were able to get satellite from this site, and it was FHU with 50 amp power. There were handicapped accessible restrooms available. Wifi was offered, but our on board Wifi worked acceptably. There are some cow grazing nearby, so there was the occasional "farm" smell drift by at times, as well as some fly's and mosquito's to watch out for. One thing I wasn't crazy about was the layout of the pull through sites. Even though the sites were terraced, they set them up "Jack & Jill" style. So that made our up hill neighbors patio face our patio. Even though there were light bushes on the hill separating the sites, we felt like they were in our conversations while sitting outside. This is a decent park. We camped at Angels Camp RV & Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort , Felton, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This is not a big park, about 100 sites total and that includes about a dozen tent sites. The park does live up to it's name though, massive redwood trees, some 300' tall and thousands of years old are throughout the park. We had 5 in our site alone. We picked this park not only because it has full hook ups, but also because it has a variety of sites that can fit a rig 45' in some of the sites. The park is a bit short on amenities, no pool or spa, no workout room, and the playground is a basketball hoop, and a tether ball pole. There is a clubhouse with a pool table and an up-rite piano, and river access on the back of the park to the San Lorenzo River. The park is pet friendly, but there is no dedicated dog area. Many of the sites are pretty close together as they did their best to make as many spots as possible in a small park. Made reservation 4 months ago and was able to get us one of the nicest sites in the park. Our site, #62 would easily fit a 45' rig. The curb side of the site has the redwoods and a large buffer area to boot. Due to the giant redwoods satellite reception was impossible. There is cable TV here, 25 channels to be exact. Picture quality ranged from good to fair. WiFi was also free, but the ability of it to keep up with the demand was sketchy. There are two sets of restrooms, one set is handicapped accessible, the other is not due to small doors and a 6" step into the shower area. In spite of all this, I liked the park because of the ambiance provided by the giant trees and river flowing in the back. There is a steep slope to get down to the river that can be tricky. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wine Country RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

We love that this park is central to many of the local wineries in the area, and overall is a nice well appointed park. The roads are paved but the sites vary quite a bit as far as design and amenities. They span the whole spectrum from dirt/DG sites and grass, to concrete pads and patio's. Of course the cost for each level bumps up, so it can really depend on what you are willing to pay for. Many of the sites will have a RV parking area just big enough for your RV, but if your RV has slide outs, the outside space is limited. We were excited to come back this time to check out the "new" section that recently opened up. The new area looks nice, but again some odd design choices were made. We had site # 178 at the back side of the loop. As we pulled into the loop I first noticed that the roads are fairly narrow. There are back in sites all around the outside of the loop with pull throughs in the center. We had a back in site and the narrow roads made backing in a challenge. Our 40' rig was barely able to make the turn. Once in the site, we just fit due to a block wall in the back. Our front end was less than two feet back of the curb line. I don't think a 42 or 45' coach would get in the sites at the end of the loop. Because the site was so short overall, we pulled the Jeep to the back of the site on the patio to give us some space outside to hang out with friends. The other thing you can't miss is the presence of many new park models have been added in many of the existing RV spots. In the older existing area, and the brand new area. But in spite of all of this there are a lot of nice features about the park. There is an outdoor pub area, a place for a live band and picnic area, the regular pool and spa area plus an adult only spa up the hill a bit. A small work out room, laundry and meeting room. There are 3 fenced dog areas, and a game room. All facilities are handicapped accessible. We camped at Wine Country RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Seacliff State Beach, Aptos, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Sea Cliff is a State owned/ran RV camping and day use area. We were in the full hook up area at the far north end of the park, and there are 3 dry camp lots, A,B and C as well. The dry camp spots are pretty much asphalt parking area with lines painted on the ground for your site. They were approximately 27X60'. The full hook up sites are narrow long sites with each one having 6" raised curb planters on each side. Unfortunately the planters were sand, and grassy weeds that were in dire need of cutting. The FHU sites had a heavy duty picnic table and raised fire pit at the front of the site. The sewer hook up was at the back of the sites, so bring lots of sewer hose. They are approximately 39X56'. Each site backs up to a public walkway that is about 8' wide and runs the length of the beach. On the other side of the walkway is the sand and the waves. On the front side of the sites is the road, and a embankment that's about 100+ feet tall. It used to be that there was zero cell signal in the camping area, but there is usable signal now probably from added cell towers in the area. The FHU sites are 30 amp only, but with a little conservation the 30 amp was not an issue. I love the relation of the sites to the beach, but the overall park is in dire need of maintenance. There is much weeding that needs to be done, the entrance road in front of the sites which is up against the embankment is over grown with trees and shrubs, and several large pot holes need filling in the road. The restrooms are typical for a public beach location, block walls and sparse on the inside. They are handicapped accessible, but there are NO hot showers available. Only cold water outdoor showers. Another point to keep in mind, they had me read and sign a small slip of paper upon checking in that advised among other things that there was a theft alert as chained generators and ice chests have been stolen. I very much like RVing at the beach, but as you can see there are trade offs. We camped at Seacliff State Beach in a Motorhome.

Yanks RV Resort, Greenfield, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Yanks is in a curious location, kind of in the middle of nowhere. It's right off highway 101, between King City and Soledad. There is not a whole lot in the area, and much of the agriculture appears to have switched to growing grapes. It's only about ½ mile off of 101, but surprisingly the road noise isn't bad, and was never an issue at night. The surrounding area is all farm land, so not much extra traffic in the area. There is a building project across the street from the park, and word is that it is going to be an Air Museum that will be owned by the park. A large plot of ground has been leveled, and there were stacks of sewer pipes waiting to be installed. However, talking to a park employee, the plot has been in that condition for quite a while, as progress is slow. The park itself is really nicely done. All of the sites are concrete and in varying lengths up to 100' long. There is free wifi and cable, and the landscaping is beautiful. Each site has a cement patio in addition to the parking pad. The patio is 30' long, and in the middle of most sites. However, there are dual sewer connections so you can position the RV in place to be able to best utilize the patio. The landscaping between the sites are a variety of plants and wood chip planters. At the ends of each row are large grass areas that were meticulously cared for. If there was a down side to the sites, I would say that the roads are a bit narrow, so carefully swing wide when entering or leaving a site to avoid crushing the plants. The park has a pool and spa, a nice workout room, and one of the nicest dog parks I have seen, We paid $60 a day (including tax) for a 70' deluxe pull through site. Notably, the taxes were almost $10 a day! Our T-Mobile air card worked well here, about the same as Verizon. The restrooms are handicapped accessible and are beautiful as well. This park definitely rates a "10" in my book. We camped at Yanks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Pala Casino RV Resort, Pala, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

All pads are concrete, as are the roads. There is nice landscaping, green grass, and newer trees throughout the park. The park is surrounded by large rolling hills so you get a "out in the country feeling". It is about 7 miles off of I/S 15, but the roads are a bit twisty to get there. Security was constantly patrolling the park on bikes and golf carts and everyone was friendly. The do offer free WiFi, but our T-mobile router worked well here. There is a nice pool and spa, and a shuttle to take you to the Casino, but walking there is not a problem as it is not that far. The restrooms are fabulous and handicapped accessible. On the down side there were a few issues. There is a construction project going on involving the Casino pool and parking garage. The construction noise wasn't an issue, but to make room for the employee parking, they fenced off a dirt lot next to the RV park. On weekends when it busy and the employees use the lot, 4 separate generator powered light towers run all night long to light the parking area. So if you are on side closest to the street, you hear generator noise all night. Also west of the RV park is a small "ranch" fenced off with chain link fence right next door. They do have about 15 cows grazing in a field, but they were not actually a problem. But the 4 farm dogs would sometimes get barking at night and continue for hours. And then the one surprising issue I learned quite by accident. This is brand new park, and it looks like they really did a nice job of setting it up. But for some reason, every other row of RV sites is only 30 amp service at the box. We had 50 amp service on the far south wall, so I assumed that they all were that way. It wasn't until talking to a neighbor that he commented that if he came back, he wanted to get a 50 amp site. Sure enough checked the pedestals and he was right. I guess that was their solution to save a buck during construction. It's still a very nice park, I will stay here again. We camped at Pala Casino RV Resort in a Motorhome.

East Shore RV Park, San Dimas, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

East Shore is connected to the Raging Waters water park, and is owned by the county. It is one of the closest ones you will find close to LA County Fairgrounds, and LA proper. We have stayed here before, but it has been a few years. We were kind of surprised how much it has turned into a "long term" rental park. A small section of the park is reserved for transient guests, but about 80% is long term. We paid a weekly rate of $329 a week, which breaks down to about $47 a night. It is full hook up, and some of the sites are on a hill overlooking the reservoir at Frank G Bonelli Park. It is also right next door to Bracket Field, a county airport for smaller planes. The sites can be pretty sloped, so if you come, bring blocks to level with. There is a pool and some stuff for the kids, but there isn't much in the way of maintenance, so parts are getting a bit worn out. If fact when we got to our site, it was covered in screws, nails, and various debris. We spent about 10 minutes cleaning it off before we could pull the rig in. The restrooms are handicapped accessible, but could also use some modernizing. We used our own Wifi, but there may have been some offered if you went to the office. In spite of being on a hill, our wifi struggled a bit, both T-mobile and Verizon, but that could have been just positioning. Interestingly, there is a 2 week maximum for staying in a site (if you are not a permanent resident). After 2 weeks you have to move to a different site. It's an OK park if you need to stay, but it didn't feel like a good long term place to stay. We camped at East Shore RV Park in a Motorhome.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Since this was a former KOA park, they still have much the usual amenities as a KOA with out the price. It is a large park with many sites, and decent amount of room between the parking pads. Most sites are easy to navigate into, and the spaces are lined out with wooden ground markers. The park is neat and clean and the staff is friendly. There is a good size dog park, but there is a lot of room to walk the dog around the inside of the park boundary. The office has a small Cafe on site if you don't want to make your own dinner. One negative with our site was that the sewer was at the rear edge along the road. When we pulled through with our tow car attached it put the sewer about 30' away. The electric and water are located in the middle of the site. For fuel there is a Pilot truck stop about 1/2 mile from the park off the interstate. There is also a nice mountain view from the park. A nice change from the flat desert in most of west Texas off of I-10. I would stay here again. We camped at Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA) in a Motorhome.

Whip In RV Park, Big Spring, Texas

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

This would have been a decent stop and value at $15 - $20 a night. But at the $30 a night rate this was terrible. The entire park is dusty gravel, and what little green there is around the park is filled with stickers. The sites are very close together, and we were about 10' from our neighbors RV. There is no outside room unless you stand in front of or in back of the RV. Traffic on the I-20 is very loud as the park is right next to the highway. There was a sewer smell drifting from somewhere when ever you went outside. On the up side, the park is flat and easy to level on. The office staff was pleasant, once she showed up. Much of the park is taken up with workers from the oil fields and various businesses in the area living there, but there were not a problem. Stay here if you must, but there are other choices in the area for a lot less money that won't be much different. There was WiFi offered, but we didn't use it. We stayed here because of the Good Sam rating, but it was a bit gratuitous. I wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Whip In RV Park in a Motorhome.
