Elks Lodge #2670 (Members Only), Minden, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

I very seldom get to post back to back reviews specially when they're 9 to 11 months apart . But let me just say this, coming from Reno area where I had to pay at the Grand Sierra what I had to pay and resort fees it completely takes the fun out of what you're therefore, this lodge is a short term stay for anybody passing through yet it has 50 amp power it does have water if you need to fill your tank there is no dump, but remember it's just here for short term stay. For some reason the traffic wasn't as bad this time as the last time we visited not sure if the gravel/road repair yard across the street was not in full swing but it was more quiet , but I will say this you better have your nights sleep in by 7 o'clock in the morning because the traffic does get cranked up and it does get noisy. Another thing I noticed this time is there was more people here, the lodge said that the campground's five spots have been pretty much booked all summer . I will say this when you are backing into the spots make sure you have a good spotter the spots are kind of pie shaped and it is possible to get closer to your neighbor than you should be when backing in be careful. We definitely would stay here again . We camped at Elks Lodge #2670 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Grand Sierra Resort RV Park, Reno, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $83.00
Overall Rating:

Don't really know where to start but I'll give it my best shot. From a business standpoint I get it when there's a special event in town Hot August nights etc. get every penny you can and believe me they do. From a camping standpoint this campground has run its course. The nightly cost with the good Sam discount and we spent eight days there we were at $83 a night(ridiculous) but they also add a resort fee which for eight days cost us $135 this is part of that $83 a night. I have made up my mind that unless I am here for a special event I will bypass Reno they do not need my money they got enough. The campground is in dire need of some TLC. They keep saying they're going to upgrade but the manager says don't count on it, the money gets spent before it ever dwindles down to the RV campground. We had a 30 amp pull-through. It was on a gravel rock base, somewhat dusty, but pulling a car trailer and being as long as we were it worked out fine. Here's a good one every spot out in the back lot. By the water and sewer dump around each site had a 4 x 8 patch of goat-head puncture vines. This is ridiculous; these are aggressive nuisance plants that get spread everywhere and your pets can't walk. it was a mess. I couldn't believe it. They should've been sprayed with some sort of weed spray and completely eliminated. There is just absolutely zero maintenance unless something breaks in the park. The only good things I can say is during Hot August Nights this campground is convenient to all the concerts going on and also a good place to be if you have a car, other than that go somewhere else. We camped at Grand Sierra Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Comstock Country RV Resort, Carson City, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

I might have rated this campground a little too high according to some of my fellow RV'ers, but ratings are based on experience and I had a very good experience . First of all we're 65 foot long with the car trailer, the lady at the front desk was very very efficient got us in and out of there in no time we parked up the hill on an outside spot and are turning radius for getting out was probably the best you could expect in a park that is in some areas very tight. As far as cleanliness in this park has a lot of what I call work campers people that are staying here extended time not permanent but you're working in the area and leave early come in late and do their thing and the park is maintained very well you wouldn't know it and less you were aware that this was going on. Truthfully I had not been back to this park in over 25 years it has made some drastic improvements . Did not use the laundry room or the bathrooms but everything appeared from the outside very tidy and neat looking the asphalt was very clean it just had a well-kept appearance . I would stay here again if in the area I always used the gold dust when in the area but I would stay here instead. We camped at Comstock Country RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stay at this park on occasions, mostly in the fall when the weather is cooler this time it was in the middle of July. Have no complaints the power was very good the site we got in was an end sight, One of the only problems was there was a lot of fires going on in California and the smoke was terrible you could barely see the mountains surrounding this campground, this was no fault of the campground but it's what you had to deal with while you were here. The help they have here is very very nice very accommodating. We look forward to our return visits to this park .

Casino restaurant attached to RV park was very reasonable food was better than average. The only thing I might add as a cautionary is when you are leaving the park heading to Reno the first on ramp to go to Reno has very little run out distance in other words if there's a lot of traffic let it go because there is no good merging space or roadway.

Far Horizons 49er Village RV Resort, Plymouth, California

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

This is basically a weekend warrior campground with permanent residents scattered about after the weekend warriors are all gone. My understanding is this is now owned corporate instead of by locals, which kind of makes sense because a lot of times when that happens they come in they raise the prices, but make minimal upgrades and that is definitely the case here. We stayed here a lot back in the early 90s, mid 90s and early 2000's, and I can tell you this other than the grass getting mowed, none of electrical boxes have been upgraded, sewer still the same, pretty much minimal TLC which is too bad. Roads are still the same, in fact worse, because nothing's been done to basically asphalt patched potholes. Another thing I have a big problem with is they took full payment from me for a week - three weeks in advance, with no refund within 14 days of my arrival date. This is wrong, totally wrong. In fact I don't even know if it's legal, They really don't divulge this 'til after they've taken all your information, your payment, and then they still don't tell you until you ask. Had this not been a week that we just needed to get away, I would've told them to cancel . As far as the area, beautiful area, lots of wineries. It is a nice place to come visit. It's just too bad the park has not gotten a good maintenance upgrade schedule intact, because they have tripled ,their prices but nothing has been fixed or taken care of - too bad. Also, we only had 30 amp which is what I requested, but for a weekly price this was ridiculous. Can't tell you if I will come back, but if convenience is the factor then I probably will come back.

The Fair Park RV - Alameda County Fairgrounds, Pleasanton, California

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

The price I paid was left over from a prior cancellation, when you cancel they do not give you your money back rather they keep it as a future deposit for camping. I am getting used to the prices that some of these campgrounds are getting now so what i used to consider highway robbery it's getting to be pretty much the norm .I have reviewed this campground several times over the years but either I'm looking through it with different eyes or excepting the fact that what I considered dirt I'm now looking at it as clean dirt, lol.The campground has raised its prices that you don't see any riff-raff in here anymore they can't afford it. Although didn't use them the restrooms appeared clean . Even on a busy car show weekend the campground was not full which that surprised me but I think it has a lot to do with the price they charge, there is no weekly or monthly rate it's strictly a daily rate per night. The hook ups work fairly good which are all in back of whatever you are camping in. We will probably use this park again due to the fact of its convenience to the fairgrounds.

Interior roads can be tight when this campground is full so be prepared for tight maneuvering. Shopping is nearby restaurants are not far off either there is a café on the fair grounds which serves breakfast and lunch which seems to be pretty good . There is a nine hole golf course in the center of the race track which is on the fairgrounds which is kind of fun to play if you don't get too serious.

Silver City RV Resort, Minden, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

I only use this park when Passport America is excepted which is late in the fall, otherwise I keep driving. This park has basically become a work camp for people in the area: a lot of long-term, six months or longer. The place is completely full: almost impossible to get in there, but we did get in. We camped close to the road: if you've got any other options do it because it's very noisy.

The interior roads are very tight if you are pulling a trailer, which I was with my motorhome. Virtually impossible to navigate out of the spot without asking somebody to move. I don't really use this park for it's amenities. I use it merely as a convenience for doing what I like to do in the area so in that regard it worked out fine.

395 has become so busy you really have to be careful pulling out especially if you're going to be heading south. I don't know what can be done other than maybe a dummy Lane to ease into the traffic: something will have to be done eventually, very dangerous.

The sewer connection is pretty far in the back. We use a hose for gray water and then when we left, backed up made a dump and then left the park. I would have needed 30 foot of sewer hose to make the connection, but I'm set up for long-term camping so a gray water hose is not a problem for a few days.

Silver State RV Park (formerly Winnemucca / I-80 KOA), Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

First of all I'm not a KOA fan, in fact I will avoid a KOA campgrounds just about at any cost. But when I saw the $19.99 a night and have stayed at this park prior to it being a KOA: I said what the heck I'm gonna try it out again.

The park is still in the desert so there's no way of getting around the dust. But there has been some changes: a lot are KOA changes. Their store now has a hotdog area which is very good. Also they are starting to serve ice cream which is another very good. The park has a nice dog wash which we used.

Overall the park looks tidy but you're never going to get away from the dust and dirt as long as you're in this type of environment. The inside store has a excellent RV miscellaneous parts very, very good, probably one of the best I've ever seen. The laundry room was clean, and appealing to use. We had an issue with one of the dryers, but that was it. They will refund your money if there is an issue.

I would stay here again late in the fall at this price. I don't know if I would pay the full blown KOA price, but sometimes convenience has a cost. I've said that before but we will definitely come back. Road noise for us was not an issue as we were probably about in the middle of the park.

North Spokane RV Campground, Spokane, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Convenience has a price and I can vouch for that. I am appalled by the price that they get for people to stay in this park, but you know what I could rant and rave about the price till all my 2000 words are used up and this place still manages to stay full and here we are the 1st of October. Value aside this is a very nice park, it's new, everything is new and nice, but it's about $30 a night overpriced. Here's the deal if you stayed here for a month which I could do it would average out to about $20 a night electricity included but the daily which we are only here for three days is ridiculous it should not be 300% higher than the monthly daley it's way out of whack. Enough of the rant, the park has long pull throughs, all concrete, very level it has good cable TV (is very awkward to hook up). I could care less about the Wi-Fi because I don't use it anyway so I don't know about that, there is some traffic noise but it's minimal so if price has no boundaries then you will love this park. Welcome. We camped at North Spokane RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Round Valley RV Park (formerly Challis Valley RV Resort), Challis, Idaho

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

I reviewed this park in 2014 before it had new owners, A rundown neglected park struggling to stay in business at that time . What I see now is a park that is trying to improve things and make a comeback under different ownership . The sites are very large for pull through's can accommodate any length and the power, water, sewer work just fine for our particular needs we are right at 65 for long . We were pretty much the only ones there this time a year so the views were wide open and it was super quiet in the park. The owners seem to have daytime jobs so you don't even see them till late in the evening. The park is still a passport America Park,you can stay here for four days doesn't matter what day it is before the regular amount kicks in. There is the main road which runs through the middle of the park,this is also access for other areas not sure where but there is some light traffic that comes and goes more in the evening then any other time I noticed . We did actually go over to the golf course and look at that park. We chose this park over that one due to the fact it had longer sites and much more level . Hope this park continues to improve and also remain a PA park. We camped at Round Valley RV Park (formerly Challis Valley RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Saguaro RV Park, Jackpot, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This park has always been our stop off point before hitting the desert are heading north usually we are in a summer time stop so it is a relief from the heat . This year we stopped at the end of September always like to golf at the golf course pretty good restaurants around there so it's about a two day stop and then we move on . Unbeknown to us and nobody brought it to our attention they decided to turn the water off a week early in the front RV park so when I came back from golfing and was looking for a shower there was none the water was turned off. I had not filled my holding tanks up so I had no water in them long story short my wife proceeded to the front office and demanded they charge us half of the 22 after a lengthy discussion they said they would but it wasn't without a exhausting debate. This incident probably would have made somebody give this place a 2 but I try to look at the overall picture the park is a great place they goofed they made it right for us can't tell you if they did anything for anybody else probably not but it's always been a great place to stop and I will continue to stop here . When the water is on they over water so I can guarantee you your coach your tow behind will definitely get wet no way around it unless you go and turn each sprinkler head off.

Grand Sierra Resort RV Park, Reno, Nevada

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

I got kind of tricked on this deal, thought I had a comp night for staying here which I have used in the past only to get there and find out that it had expired, so rather than leave we stayed, their prices are pricey for this time of year. This campground we use for Hot August nights and we expect to pay high prices and we do and we usually don't stay here other than that time. But passing through I had to check some things out and anyway after pulling in and receiving my bill I was quite shocked . I have said it before and I'll say it again they basically just Band-Aid problems in the park till they become real issues and then they have to fix them. The park is pretty rundown, at least for the price that you are paying, but you do have access to all the casino pool, spa etc. All utilities work fine, no complaints there. Spots are long enough for a motorhome and tow vehicle attached, but they are getting a little out of alignment on the prices I think, especially for this late in the year.

I like this park, very pretty setting. You're far enough out of Reno to feel like you're not in the mix of all the hustle and bustle. This park is used as a summer retreat; you see a lot of not permanents, but a lot of long term campers. You don't hear a lot of the I-80 freeway noise, so the campground is very quiet. The price per night reflects taxes, Good Sam discount. I think their prices are a little bit on the high side for fall rates but it's still a nice place to camp. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice place to stay for elks members only . I agree with previous post the traffic on Kemmerling is getting more used during the daytime very very busy there seems to be a gravel yard across the street that trucks are continuously running from seven in the morning till 3 o'clock this goes on six days a week at least this was my observation how long this goes on through the year can't tell you . The RV parking is set up very nice we actually backed in with a 22 foot enclosed trailer the only thing the sprinklers washed the trailer early in the morning but that was OK we did not have to unhook. Electrical hook up was nice 50 amp was a plus specially if you were there in the summer time were you needed to run air believe me it would be hot, there is no trees to shade. We attended a breakfast at the lodge on Sunday was excellent very very good I would stay here again but definitely bring earplugs there is still some traffic noise at night if you can park away from the street as far as possible is a plus, motorhomes or trailers between you and the street might create a little bit of a buffer on noise.

Elks Lodge #2091 (Members only), South San Francisco, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

There is also some dry camping spots I believe four of them and if it's full you can park around the perimeter. This was a very receptive lodge we took advantage of several things going on at the lodge due to the fact we were staying here because of our son having medical issues in the UCSF medical clinic. We were here seven days because we are self sufficient with electricity and water so we just dry camped for $10 a night . They do have a Gym here so there is showers available if need be. The secretary here, we got to know personally, very very nice lady; will do anything to help you out. We were here for a Sunday breakfast which was excellent - it was their purple pig fundraiser. There is 30 amp electrical which you will need a long cord; there is also water available at least have a 50 foot and possibly even longer water hose for water hook up. There is no sewer but there is a dump service that comes around weekly if need be for I want to say $65 . You cannot find any campground for less than $85-$100 a night around this area, trust me this is quiet nice and worked great for us coming and going.
