Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Arrived in the early afternoon with a reservation and was assigned to #50, a large pull-through with an asphalt drive and a very level cement pad. Very close to the facilities. We very visiting friends in the area and they asked us to spend the night at their house so, anticipating some nasty weather forecasted to come through that night we pulled the slides in and secured the rig. Well, nasty weather was what this area had to say the least. A lot of rain, high winds and quarter size hail. The next morning I drove out to the park early to check on the rig and fortunately, all was well. The weather was forecasted to be bad later in the day so I went to the office to inquire about staying an extra day so the lady in the office blocked an extra day just in case. Several other folks we doing the same thing and she did everything she could to help people, even to the point of not taking any reservations until all the folks that were there already were taken care of. Amazing service! One thing that is a little problem is there are several large pot holes in the roads so be careful drive in the park. Good Verizon LTE service at 3-bars and 95% are satellite TV friendly. We will return. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Elks Lodge #2390 (Members Only), Dalhart, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects a donation as they don't have a set or recommended amount. When we called ahead to just take a spot. Parking is on gravel with no shade of any kind but sites are relatively level. Electrical is 30 amp with good water pressure. No sewer. Lodge opened at 4PM where we paid the bartender. Very friendly folks. One negative that we find significant is that they allow smoking in the lodge and there are no exhaust fans. Because of that issue we didn't stay very long. We would return. We camped at Elks Lodge #2390 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Sundance High Plains RV Park, Lamar, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects military discount. After a quick and easy check-in we pulled into site #21. The parking is very easy and we were able to leave our towed hooked up. Electric service was good but the water spigot was close to the ground and right next to a large rock. I'm glad we had a splitter so I didn't have to hook directly to the faucet. Very friendly folks in the office who I think are the owners. Excellent WiFi and our Verizon was at 2-bars of 4g. No problem getting a DTV signal with our onboard dish. Their laundry has three washers/dryers and a book exchange. We thought have a different prices on the machines was a bit odd. We would stay here again. We camped at Sundance High Plains RV Park in a Motorhome.

Colorado Springs Elks Lodge #309 (Members Only), Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Arrived in the early afternoon and took one of the last two sites available. Got backed in and discovered we had a flat. There is a Goodyear Commercial Tire Center very close so got a new tire installed. Good water pressure and 30 amp power. You are very, very close to your neighbor's here so make sure you are in the confines of the white lines. One of our neighbor's had their window shades deployed and they were actually in our site so we had to move over a foot or so. We will be back. We camped at Colorado Springs Elks Lodge #309 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Terry Bison Ranch Resort, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects Passport America discount plus tax. Arrived in the early afternoon and checked in which was very easy. Watch for the potholes at the entrance. They provided a brochure with a restaurant menu and a 10% discount coupon. Our site #81 was very tight but adequate for us for one night. All sites are tight and very close to your neighbors. There are a lot of full-time residents here and some of them have a junk/tools/ etc. around their rig. Most of the sites also need weed whacking and/or mowing. The whole park needs some attention. Good solid 50 amp power and fairly good water pressure. Verizon cell service was 4 bars of 4g LTE and we were able to get a good DirecTv satellite signal with our on-board antenna. We would not have stayed here if they didn't take Passport America. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Fort Caspar Campground, Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Price includes taxes and a Good Sam discount. Our third time to Fort Casper but only because it is close to family members. Solid 50 amp electric and good water pressure. A lot of full-time residents in fact, I think the majority of the park are folks here long term. Most people obey the 5 MPH speed limit but there are those who do not and they kick up a fair amount of dust. Very close side-by-side parking with nothing between sites. WiFi is free but the reception is off and on depending on the time of day. Good Verizon LTE service and you wouldn't have a problem getting a satellite signal here. All that being said, I think we will check out another park in the area, especially given the price they are charging for basic RV parking. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

Given the amount of full-timer's here (and they are adding more all the time) I would call way in advance for a reservation. Highly recommend you visit Independence Rock and the Hand Cart Museum that is about 5 miles or so to the west of the Rock.

Western Hills Campground, Rawlins, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects military discount. Side-by-side parking on hard packed gravel. No shade what so ever. Good water pressure with solid 50 amp electric. Cable TV but is very poor picture quality. Internet was very good and we had good 4g Verizon cell service. The park sits on top of a hill so, if it's windy (as it was when were were there), you will be rocked a little. If it's blowing, next time we will stay down the hill at the other park. We would stay here again. We camped at Western Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds), Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects military discount. Easy check in with the caretaker. We were told what sections still had water turned on and just go find a site. All sites have a fence around them and parking to be out of the road can be a challenge. In fact, we were backed in at an angle and still we sticking out in the road a tad. Good water pressure and 50 amp power. Some sites have both 30 and 50 amp, some site only 30, some sites have only 50 and others have both. The site we selected had only 50 amp. Not a bad place and the price is right. We camped at Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

Buffalo Meadows RV Park (Fort Hall Casino Campground), Fort Hall, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The wife was able to trade a free hotel room for an RV site so parking was free. The RV parking for checking in is to the west of the main casino entrance. They want you to check in before pulling into the RV park. The roads in the park are very tight as are the sites, hence my low rating. Also, they need to do some tree trimming. Our site, 14A, has a tree at the front of the parking pad that might rub your RV when you exit. But you can't beat the price in our case. Might pass this place up unless we have another freebie. We camped at Buffalo Meadows RV Park (Fort Hall Casino Campground) in a Motorhome.

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

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Very friendly staff and checking in was a breeze. Watch for the small sign at the entrance to the park from the highway. Very small and hard to see. They charged us $3 to use a credit card which I am seeing more and more these days. Sites are huge with very good power and water pressure. Recommend you use a water pressure regulator. We used this park as a base for exploring the area. We will return again. We camped at Round Valley RV Park (formerly Challis Valley RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Bear Den RV Resort , Grangeville, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects military discount. Thank you for giving us that. Very easy check in with the very friendly attendant. Our site (#2) was gravel and fairly fairly level. All utilities are in a great location near the rear of the side. Very solid 50 amp power and great water pressure. I used a pressure reducer due to high water pressure. The office has some standards RV stuff just in case you forgot something. Very good Verizon 4g cell signal and in our site we were able to get a DTV satellite signal. If you are a beer drinker (and are not easily offended) we highly recommend the Triangle Bar. Ask about the cigar box guitar hanging from the ceiling. We would stay here again. We camped at Bear Den RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Hillview RV Park, Clarkston, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Park is occupied by mostly permanent residents so there are not a lot of overnight parking sites. We were given space #28, the last one available. Long pull-through on gravel with good power and water pressure. Very poor WiFi when I could connect which was only for a short time. They shouldn't even advertise that they have internet. Used our own MiFi device with a strong Verizon 4g signal. We camped at Hillview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pioneer RV Park, Hermiston, Oregon

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

Price reflects Passport America discount then we paid $3 "lodging tax". We have stayed here several times in the past. Our side was adequate for our 39' coach and towd parked in front. There is a strip of grass between each site giving you a tad more space. There a re a lot of long term residents but every takes care of their areas. No problem getting a DTV satellite signal and the WiFi was fairly good. We will return. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Motorhome.

Memaloose State Park, Hood River, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $4.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is based on Disabled Veteran Discount ($8 to make a reservation). The park is down the hill from the Memaloose Rest Area right on the Columbia River. We checked in online and printed the parking pass and the receipt to put in the collection box. Our site (A4) backs up to I-84 so we got some highway noise but we didn't find it intrusive. The site is plenty long enough for our 39' motor coach but we had to park our car across the pad in front of us. I wouldn't call this a destination park unless you take advantage of the fishing on the river. The park has been here awhile so you only have 30 amp electric service. Not a problem with the breezes coming into the park from the river.

For the holiday weekend this place was full all three nights. They did have some overflow parking for $10 a night. Like all Oregon State Park's reservations must be made well in advance on holiday weekends and this one during fishing seasons. We camped at Memaloose State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Things have not changed much since our last visit. Still very low water pressure and barky dogs during the dog show. We were in site #16 and were able to get a DTV satellite signal but that might be a problem when the trees have all their leaves. Good Verizon 4g service. Super friendly and helpful folks in the office. We camped at Dixon May Fair Campground in a Motorhome.
