Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park), Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This park offers a breathtaking view of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet. The gravel sites are spacious, and graded horizontally into the slope down to the bluff. Ours was absolutely "dead nuts" level with no adjustment required, side to side or fore and aft. The water pressure was great and the electrical service was strong and steady. WiFi worked well at times, but I suspect some folks were being less than considerate and streaming video in the evening. Cable TV was all movie channels, but I received a good strong over the air broadcast on NBC and CBS out of Anchorage. Verizon was a bit on the weak side. The staff was friendly and courteous. The gravel beach at the foot of the bluff was excellent for walks. We will definitely stay here again should we find ourselves in Homer again. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit the famous Homer Spit. As the locals say, "Spit Happens". If you are in Homer on a Saturday or a Wednesday, there is an excellent Farmers Market in town on the main drag. Also be sure to save room one evening for the Bar-B-Q conveniently located in the little trailer next to the camp office. The owner is a very personable guy, and his food is outstanding. Order early! He runs out.

Seward Waterfront Park, Seward, Alaska

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

This is somewhat of a unique park. Not many towns I've visited dedicate practically the entire waterfront to a public RV park. Consequently the park is very convenient to downtown and the harbor area. Our gravel site was level and water and electric were good. WiFi worked exceptionally well. There are no sewer hookups in the utility sites, but there is a dump station near the north entrance to the park. The fee for dumping is $5 regardless of whether or not you are staying here. Be ready for the madness, particularly on weekends. This place gets to rockin'. We unfortunately were next to a very loud group of individuals, and quiet time doesn't begin until 2300 (11 pm). We very much enjoyed the town of Seward. Great place to visit. We would return here again, although next time I think we'll dry camp - Better value. We camped at Seward Waterfront Park in a Travel Trailer.

While in Seward be sure to avail yourself of one of the marine glacier tours available in town. I highly recommend Major Marine Tours. We took a six hour cruise with them, and it was wonderful. Great boat, great crew, great day!

Mountain View RV Park, Palmer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park off the beaten path. Being outside of "downtown" Palmer, it is very peaceful and quiet. The owner was very helpful and it is clear he takes pride in his facility. Our grass site was quite level. Utilities were good overall. WiFi was very slow, but usable early in the morning. We were in a back-in site which was fairly close. Our view was totally blocked by the camper next door, but we had plenty of room to deploy our awning. Power water and sewer were at the back end of the site, but I'm in the habit of carrying additional hose and cord for just these kinds of situations. All in all this is a nice park. We would stay here again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground), Denali National Park, Alaska

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

First the ugly: As mentioned in another review, the access roads in the campground loops are in deplorable shape. Numerous, DEEP, water-filled potholes abound on all roads just begging for a few scoops of gravel. Next the bad: The camp sites are very tight. Thankfully when we arrived there was nobody in the site across from us so I was able to maneuver the Airstream into the site. Some sites were more spacious than others. Our site was barely adequate to accommodate the trailer, and I had to park the truck perpendicular on the side of the road. I've spent summers working in other National Parks with far better campgrounds. Next, be advised, there is a train station in the park. As a rule, I'm not one to be bothered by train noise, but the station is practically next door. Very loud the few times a day the train comes through. And lastly, of the parks we've visited over the years, I felt Denali was the least "visitor friendly". Perhaps this is because without riding one of the many park buses (for a fee), one really can't see much, and believe me, this is a very big park. Now at last, The Good: Denali is a beautiful area. Lot's of good hiking. The sled dog kennels are worth visiting. Honestly, overall I was somewhat disappointed. I doubt I'll be back in my lifetime anyway.

Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park, Liard River, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice provincial park with the added bonus of the wonderful hot springs. We made reservations several days in advance so we were able to get a spot. Without reservations one might not be so lucky especially on the weekend. Our gravel site was spacious and absolutely level. As stated in earlier reviews, the walk to the spring was reasonably short and not strenuous in the least. I was slightly disappointed in the traffic noise. Perhaps in a different part of the campground it wouldn't have been quite so noticeable. We would stay here again. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cottonwood RV Park, Destruction Bay, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice campground in an absolutely beautiful spot along the shore of Destruction Bay. The owners are clearly proud of their park as the grounds are spotless. We had an electric only site and only 15 amp service but since the weather was cool we really didn't require AC at all other than to make coffee in the morning. (easier than the percolator) There was WiFi available but it was quite slow even with my booster, but considering where we were... All in all a great place to stay. We would have stayed longer had we not been anxious to get on to Alaska. We will stay here again. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Northern Lights RV Park, Dawson Creek, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This park is OK for an overnight. Actually we stayed for two. Staff was friendly. Our site was reasonably level. Utilities worked well. Good stable power. Water pressure was fine. Sewer port clean and accessible. WiFi worked quite well. Not much of a view. There were a lot of campers packed into a small area. At least one big rig caravan was there while we were. Our space was at the west end of the park where access to the side road was easy. We would overnight here again. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Carson-Pegasus Provincial Park, Whitecourt, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Carson-Pegasus is a lovely provincial park. Site vary in size and can be difficult to come by on the weekend. The campground is above Lake McLeod. We were fortunate enough to find a site that had a view of the lake, albeit through the trees. We arrived on a Thurs. night and stayed two nights. We were pretty much alone the first night and most of Friday before the park began to fill. We were in a rustic site. No power or water, but potable water was close by if needed. Our gravel site was perfectly level and long enough that we could remain hooked up. Nice trails abound for walks. Max, our dog loved the place. We will definitely return here if we come this way again. We camped at Carson-Pegasus Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Roughrider Campground, Minot, North Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This was a good camp ground in my opinion, albeit pretty pricey. All of the utilities worked very well. Water pressure was good. Voltage was strong and steady. Sewer port was clean and accessible. As another reviewer mentioned, the sites are "back to back" which makes everything feel more cramped, but honestly we had plenty of room for our 25' Airstream and tow vehicle. Contrary to another review I read, I found the WiFi to be quite robust. I use a Ubiquity Bullet booster, but that boosts the signal strength more so than the throughput. I never once had an issue for the three days we stayed. My biggest compliment goes to the management. They were two of the most genuine and friendly folks we've met in our travels. Their efforts really made our stay very enjoyable. We will return to this campground should we find ourselves by this way again. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Wylie Park & Storybook Land, Aberdeen, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

If you don't like kids, this is not the park for you! We happen to enjoy a family atmosphere, so we had a very nice stay. The campground is very clean and neat. Asphalt sites are level, spacious and angled so you aren't right on top of you neighbor. We stayed in a water/electric site. Water pressure was fine. Electric was strong and stable. WiFi was probably the best I've seen during our travels. There is a dump station close by. The park enjoys a beautiful setting. Lots of trees and a nice lake. Foot paths abound. There is an amusement park located within the park boundaries for the kids, young and old alike. All in all a great place to stay. We only stayed one night on our way north, but wished we had stayed longer. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Wylie Park & Storybook Land in a Travel Trailer.

On-Ur-Wa RV Park, Onawa, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Great little campground. Owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful. You can tell they're "people people". Our gravel site was perfectly level, wide and plenty long enough for me to stay hooked up as we were moving on first thing in the morning. Water pressure was good. Electrical voltage was strong and steady even though everyone in the park was running their AC since it was quite hot out. Sewer port was clean and accessible. My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that the WiFi didn't seem to work well at all. Although the signal strength was good, I kept getting dropped by the system. My computer would then have a difficult time re-acquiring an IP address. No big problem as Verizon worked quite well. The campground is conveniently located about a block off of I-29. Traffic noise was minimal. We will definitely return when we come through this was again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Whittington Woods Campground, Whittington, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

As stated in other reviews, this is a very well kept park. Clean and neat. The staff is very friendly and courteous. Reservations were easy and accurate. Our gravel site was spacious and level. Electrical pedestal was at the forward end of the site, and our electrical inlet is at the rear of our trailer. Our 25' cord reached with only inches to spare. I always carry a 50 footer just in case. Voltage was good and stable. Water pressure excellent, and sewer port was clean and accessible. Traffic noise on nearby county road was negligible. All in all a lovely spot. We will stay here again. By the way, they do have WiFi contrary to the listed park statistics. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.
