Seven Feathers RV Park, Canyonville, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Driving I-5 through Oregon? I've done the drive multiple times a year for the past 10 years with our RV. I had other top pick parks, until I found this one last year. Since, then, I've stayed here four times and have not been disappointed. Spaces are sufficiently separated, giving us room. They are concrete and level. I've stayed in both the back-in and pull thru sites. The back-in spaces are preferred, as they generally back you into a hill side, or a creek... making one feel more out in the wilderness. Only "complaint" is that sewer connections have been long runs. Make reservations early during summer months. We camped at Seven Feathers RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A Truck Stop is next door to the RV Park, with special RV lanes for fuel. The store in the Truck Stop is well equipped. A casino is on the other side of the freeway, which has both an all you can eat buffet, and a formal Steakhouse (K-Bar). Both are good choices. The buffet provides discounts if you get a casino "Player's Card". The only thing negative I can say about the casino is that if you dislike secondhand smoke, the smoke free section isn't going to be smoke free enough for you. Luckily, the smoke doesn't carry into either eating facility (nor the gift shop). Using a CB channel, or a phone number, the shuttle will come right to your RV site to pick you up and take you to places in town (though most go to the Casino or Truck Stop). Multiple shuttles run, so wait times are not long. Discounts are provided if you have a "Player's Card" which you can get at the casino. There is no charge for the card. And, by signing up, you get $5.00 credit for gambling.

Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park, Gilroy, California

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

Awww... the smell of Garlic! It was present, but didn't bother us at all. This park is paved, with sufficiently level concrete pads. There are a lot of full time residents. As a two day visitor, I felt welcome. The location was good, with lots of stores nearby. The office closes at 5:30 PM, which was before we arrived the first night. Late check-in procedure was no issue. Sites are long enough, but tight (in that neighbors are right there!). I could not extend my awning due to a tree (I could have moved the RV further forward to account for the tree, but then it would have hit my neighbors RV who parked in his site crooked to fit his attached trailer). We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA, Visalia, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has received DRINKING WATER WARNING notices. Tests show 3 times the max guidelines for Nitrate Levels. Sampling also indicates presence of total coliform bacteria in the water system. The front desk states that all sites but one are now safe to drink. They gave us a one gallon jug of named brand drinking water to use instead.

The staff is nice. The store is good. The sites are gravel and fairly level. It can be difficult to get to the park as there is much road construction in the area.

If you're here to visit Visalia, the location is ideal. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Blackwell Island RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the fifth time I've stayed here. Other times, I rated it fairly high and now I would question that decision. At check-in, the office staff provided paperwork to sign regarding children. My "child" would be 18 in two weeks, but they insisted they could not be left alone in the park. And, that they could not be out on their own after the sun went down. They actually had a sheet of paper with a list of maybe a dozen rules for "children" of which they had us sign. I came out of there feeling like children were not welcome.

The sites are gravel. And, they aren't long enough for the rigs they are putting in them. Guests park their vehicles sideways in the spots with their tails sticking into the lane. This made maneuvering the Motor home onto the lane needed for our site access difficult (i.e. had to back-up and re-position even though planned for the intruding vehicles presence). In observation, I was not the only challenged motor home.

The WiFi is useless. I tried both Apple and Microsoft products. It will connect, but it won't hold the connection. And, you will burn battery life quickly to allow your device to keep retrying to connect. I found the best option to work (e.g. via VPN) was to create a cell phone hot-spot and then connect to my own personal LAN.

The awesome is location. You're very close to downtown. Lots to do in the area. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Columbia Sun RV Resort, Kennewick, Washington

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Friendly staff... goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. Beautiful, well maintained park. Super easy to navigate with a large rig. Lots of space between the sites. I got in after hours and found my information clipped to the board. One of the staff suddenly shows up in the golf cart and offers to lead me to my spot. Staff member helped get me aligned with my utilities. First shot into the site, and it was completely aligned and totally level. This is just one example of staff going above and beyond expectations.

The sites are long. I have a 36 foot fifth-wheel, and I could park my crew cab long bed pickup both in front or behind the trailer and still had room. And, my site was not an exception to the rule. I did select a deluxe, pull-through, paved site. But, in observation, the other sites were equally as big. Utilities are top notch. 50 Amp and 30 Amp available; water pressure is 80 PSI (so staff warns you to use your water pressure regulator). Sewer elbow screwed in place without need of rocks to hold the thing in.

The onsite store has lots of good stuff. We found unique, hand made, items in there which make great gifts. Also, plenty of RV supplies. The pool looked inviting. The dogs ran unleashed inside fenced dog park areas (2 exist).

The park is a bit outside the main "city" areas. But, not overly far to run into town. The mall is about a 10 minute drive. Lots of restaurants within the same drive time.

If I'm back in the Tri Cities area, I will definitely select this park again. We camped at Columbia Sun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Valencia Travel Village, Castaic, California

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Guard station up front to check-in after hours. Guards use golf carts to patrol park. Park seemed safe. It's very kid friendly with a nice pool and good store. Easy to get a big rig through the park and into the space. Space was completely level. Really good location for visiting the San Fernando Valley while not driving a big rig through LA traffic. I stayed for 11 days. I would give this park a 9 except for two issues. One is Ants. At the end of week 1, no problem. But, then: let's just say there is a reason some campers were pouring bleach around their tires and stabilizers. This park should use a pest control service on a regular basis. The other issue is out of the parks control, and that is the heat. It hit 110 degrees while we were here. The RV air conditioner couldn't keep up. We camped at Valencia Travel Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Durango RV Resort, Red Bluff, California

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a large, deluxe park. The pads are concrete, made for big rigs, and level. Landscaped between pads, cement walk ways, 3 fountains, deluxe pool, access to the river, obviously a very large investment in facilities. Plenty of staff on hand, all willing to give a helping hand. Golf cart leads camper to their spot. Park secured by locked gate (keycode access, which they change periodically); after hours check-in available with squak box or pre-arrangement (enables one to get through the gate). My only wish is that they made parks like this in a destination spot rather than someplace I can't see myself staying for more than 1 night (Interstate 5 stop-over). The parks been open for 2 years. There weren't a lot of campers here. It's a shame. This parks a 10. But, without more campers, I don't see how it can stay in business. We camped at Durango RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Blackwell Island RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here twice, 1 night each, as a stop over to Yellowstone. We like the area and this campground so much that we'll make it a destination site and stay awhile next time around. We found the sites to be level. The connections were in the right places. The size of the sites adequate for the largest rigs. There was plenty of parking available. The cable TV is adequate. The town is near enough to make this your hub. Plenty of activities. Management is friendly. The only two negatives: (1) They didn't have a marked area for dog walking, though they are pet friendly; and (2) the parking for check-in easily backs up traffic onto the access road forcing through traffic to use the exit isle for entry. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Yellowstone Park / West Entrance KOA, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $73.00
Overall Rating:      

Complaints: (1) The place is infested with mosquitoes. Over 5 days, we collected over 50 bites between the 3 of us. (2) You are on a mountain and many of the sites are not level. We used 20 blocks on one side of the Fifth Wheel and could have still used another layer (which would have been 10 blocks) to get up to level. The footing for the stabilizers was also on out of level ground, making for an unsteady trailer. (3) This is bear country and they advise to throw out your trash each night; yet one must take hike nearly back to the entrance to find a trash bin (which was usually full). Compliments: The store is impressive. The number of staff and the courtesy of the staff are impressive. Though I didn't try the meals they serve for breakfast and dinner, the menu looked good. The location is near enough to the West Entrance. The pool was inviting and within it's own building. There were many rentals available. This park has lots to do if you want to just stay in the park. We choose not to, because we came to see Yellowstone and not an RV Park. We camped at Yellowstone Park / West Entrance KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Kit Fox RV Park, Patterson, California

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

I stopped because of reviews posted here and found most of the comments correct. The reception building is kept air-conditioned (considering it was 100 degrees when I visited, that's noticeable); and the Sheriff and Highway Patrol are using the building for their breaks (i.e. they were kicked back watching the TV while I was checking in). I feel pretty comfortable about the security here! The cable is STILL not hooked up; though it's stated as if it'll happen VERY soon. The signal for the RV Antenna was adequate. Sites were on gravel. Back in sites had a small white cement area next to the gravel so that people had solid ground to walk on; and they were also surrounded by grass. The pull through sites were completely gravel. All sites were VERY close together. But, the RV Park was empty enough to leave at least one, if not many, vacant spaces between occupants. I would imagine if the park was ever full, it may be difficult to get into some of the back in spaces. During the day I went, backing in would not have been an issue. Though you could see the highway from the park, the sound from I-5 was not noticeable. Fast food establishments were within easy walking distance. The access to/from the park is easy to negotiate with a large rig onto a street with no traffic. I would rate it higher except that once you get here, there is ABSOLUTELY nothing to do. This is a stop over park: period. No Pool. No playground. Only 2 picnic tables of which you'd be intruding on someone else's campsite to use. You set up camp; you eat; you sleep; you break camp; and you go. That's about it. A 1 night stop over park. We camped at Kit Fox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort, Newport Beach, California

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $89.00
Overall Rating:      

Out of all the RV parks across the USA and Canada, this park exceeds them all. The price is just right for the area. Next to the Hyatt and across from Fashion Island (an extremely high end shopping mall). This area is littered with Ferrari's, Austin Martins, and other 6 figure cars. $250/night at a local hotel is the minimum. So getting away with this cheap fare in this location (although extremely high for RV parks) is understandable. I came here on business, and to stay in another RV park would be at least an hour of traffic each way to get into the area. The giant motorhomes (i.e. 250K +) can be found in the beach front spots paying premium prices. The RV park itself surrounds a swimming lagoon protected by a long over water pedestrian bridge. The water opens to a Boat Launching ramp and Marina for Newport Beach. The Marina opens to the ocean. Toy Haulers can be found bringing their own golf carts. The park is big enough to want them. And they'll rent you one if you don't bring your own. They'll also rent pedal boats and canoes. Plenty of beach area overlooking the lagoon. And lots of water toys set up in the water to play on. Trails for bike riding, rollerblading, or walking around the lagoon. Pool & spa are heavily used. Well supplied store. Large laundry room. Very large staff to maintain the resort including lots of security to help the guests and enforce the rules. Although the sites didn't look big enough, it all fit and was actually very easy to get into (e.g. mine is a 36' Fifth Wheel). The turf, sandy dirt, is fitting for the environment you'll notice when you reach the gate. You're at the beach (e.g. bathing suit attire is typical). We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sommerville Almond Tree RV Park, Coalinga, California

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

There are not very many, if any, other RV park selections along this section of I-5. As you would guess by the name, you park under Almond Trees. The owners were very nice. They led us to the site and helped get us situated straight so that their trees were not hit and that we were level. They have a BBQ every Saturday night of which we were fortunate enough to join. Unfortunately, the flies love this park. Keeping them off your food at a BBQ is not possible. Keeping them out of your RV is a challenge we lost several times. We will probably go back because of this parks location, but it's not a place we really want to see again. We camped at Sommerville Almond Tree RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Gate RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is not a destination RV Park. However, it's I-5 close with easy pull through sites making it perfect for a one night stop over. The sewer connection can be confusing as they have two. The obvious one is sealed closed. Forget the wrench, it still won't open. The manager helped me locate the other one covered by three rocks. Manager stays in an RV, of which they provide the site number upon check-in. They sell propane. If you don't get full hook ups, a dumping station is available for use during hours posted for $10. This park was rather empty. We noticed a lot nicer parks, which appeared heavily populated, upon departing this park heading southbound. We'd like to try some of those next time. Nothing was wrong with this RV park. It just didn't have anything special that makes you want to return; especially if others nearby have more inviting activities (e.g. River). We camped at Mountain Gate RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park with easy access from I-5. Long driveway adjacent to cows. Beautiful fountain at entry. Check-in via a nice hotel style registration desk, with an attached souvenir store, and adjoining area for a continental breakfast. "Follow Me" Golf cart led us to spot. Our site was level. Freeway noise was low (although present). Quite! Lots of very large, new model, RVs were in the park during our stay. Newspaper left on our steps in morning. Breakfast was simple, but good. Hosts were friendly. We'll stay here again. We camped at Premier RV Resorts of Eugene Oregon in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverside Resort, Whistler, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2008 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

The highway between Vancouver and Whistler is under construction to make it safer for the 2010 Olympics. This made getting here in a Motorhome a very challenging drive. However, once at the park, we found it to be fantastic. Sites were well separated by trees. Facility was top notch with a convenience store, a little restaurant, a rental counter for toys (e.g. bikes), and a shuttle service to town. Volleyball courts on sand, and horseshoes too. You can also walk to Whistler Village. We took the shuttle to the village and walked back when we were done. This is a destination park. You can stay here a week or more and still find new things to do in the area. The campground has winter sites available so that you can leave your RV here and visit it on your days off from work to escape to the winter sport of your choice. We camped at Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.
