Santa Clara County Fairgrounds RV Park, San Jose, California

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

Actually we did not stay here but I went to this location to check it out and see about a reservation.

The website says "Upgraded and Reopened!

Guidelines RV must be no more than 20 years old or newer. After 30 days guest must vacate the grounds for a minimum of 24 hours before reapplying to return. Spaces rented on a first come, first served bases."

In addition, there is a telephone number, email address and a button you can click for a RESERVATION REQUEST.

I arrived at the RV Park and was I disappointed to see it. First of all, it has not been "Upgraded" as the website said in what I saw. It looks like it has been the same for many, many years. It is dusty. Next, the RV's that were there looked like most of them had been there for more than 30 days, several months or longer. I knocked on the door of the manager who is in a Foretravel that must be 30+ years or older but no answer. Went to the assistant manager, his motorhome looked as old or older, he said they do not take reservations, it is a first come basis and in the past year they may have had 10 vacancies. They don't try to make people leave after 30 days as that is to much trouble for them and the people in the rv's. They could if they wanted to. To much paperwork on their part.

So, don't count on what the website says in this case, it is not true at all. We camped at Santa Clara County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve, Morgan Hill, California

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

I would change the name to Thousand Trails of DIRT & DUST. When called the resv. no. was told all sites had full hookups. I almost bought a membership but they could not find available membership site for the dates I wanted, but didn't. We did a non-membership. When we arrived, I confirmed we would have full hookups & was told all sites were W&E only. She said "This is a problem they have with the reservations people saying there are full hookups when we don't have them." There are 2 sewer dumps, but at the time 1 was closed to be pumped out but not sure when it would be. She said all sites are 1st come 1st serve & we could drive around & find the one we wanted. So, we unhooked, drove around. Main road is asphalt for a little ways & all roads are DIRT & I mean DIRT. All RV pads are DIRT. It is a dusty park. It looks old, run down, not kept up. From what we observed the 8 days we were there it is more of a place for locals to spend their vacations. 90%+ sites are treed, those in the very back that were $5 more per day because they have more grass, pull-thru & are open enough to use satellite. They are the same size as the cheaper sites. In California, grass is green maybe 1-2 mos. in the early spring then brown the rest of the year due to the lack of rain. Unless you are desperate & need a RV park to stay in the bay area & are not able to find space any place else, then stay here. Site G272 in back at end doesn't share parking space with another rv & less traffic. For this park being in a nationwide chain we were so disappointed in the quality of the park. As many parks as we have stayed in all over the US & Canada, including Alaska, this is the worst of all of them.

Thousand Trails is now on the bottom of our list of parks. No wi-fi, cable & cell coverage 1-2 bars & slow. Price per day - wkly rate $50 + $4 / day resort fee, 8th day $59 per day, + $4 / day resort fee Total for 8 days with tax $476.28 (doesn't include $5 per day extra for back site). We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

Casa De Fruta RV Orchard Resort, Hollister, California

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We were disappointed in this place. it is just a tourist ripoff on the side of the road. We were put in the very back in a back-in space. We had to drive around the park in order to get to the location since the turn to the space was a tight turn to the right. We stayed one night and we were glad that was all we stayed. They had plenty of pull thru spots which were not occupied and we were not offered one. Our motorhome is 40 ft and sometimes it is not easy to move in tight spaces but my husband seems to be able to get it done even tho he is not happy doing it. The spaces were fairly close together but we were able to park our jeep next to our coach as the parking area was next to the playground and a kid had thrown a bottle at our car already. Most people parked next to the playground. The place looked old, dusty and unkept. There is asphalt on most of the area from what I could see. Playground equipment is old. Looked like lots of people were spending the weekend there. We camped at Casa De Fruta RV Orchard Resort in a Motorhome.

There are shops there but they are geared for selling mostly candy. They have a fruit stand but it is expensive. Go down the road and the prices are cheaper. The wine shop is nice but expensive also. Did not try the restaurant. The ice cream bakery looked dinky. Not much in the bakery and the ice cream was about 15 flavors. Again all expensive.

Wahweap RV and Campground, Page, Arizona

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We were surprised at how NICE this park was for a park in a National Recreation Area. We have been to many National Parks and NRA's across the US and have never been to one as nice as this one. Full hook-ups, concrete pads, pull-thrus. We could not believe what we saw. They also have spots for rv's and tents together of which are hard to find. There is a special area just for tents away from the rv's. We camped at Wahweap RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $34.00

Very, Very nice park. Extra large sites, you could fit 2 motorhomes in one site. Nice people in the office, helpful. Half the park sites are owned and owners can landscape as they want other half is for rent. Fishing pond, you keep fish you catch, rainbow trout. $4.50 per fish. Good sized fish. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Desert View RV Resort, Needles, California

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a very nice park. The hosts were super friendly. Even though we arrived late they came out and greeted up and took us to our spot. The sites are gravel and there are plants tall enough between each site to allow plenty of privacy. It is an exceptionally clean park and very well maintained. We will remember this park and plan on staying here when we travel to and from California visiting family members. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Port of Siuslaw Campground and Marina, Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Parts of this park were nice and other parts were OK. We parked in the OK area, gravel in open spaces. There were some on the river and others in the treed area. Where we were was a little dusty. Lady running the office was nice and friendly. This is right by the marina and walking distance to town. The park was full and luckily we made reservations earlier in the day. It is an OK place to stay for overnight. We camped at Port of Siuslaw Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

Sunset Harbor RV Park, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an older park, but very clean. You can tell there are full time residents here but they do not have all the "junk" laying around you would normally see at other parks. Their areas are nice and picked up. Sites are OK for width, very quiet. Because there was not a big sign on the main highway, we missed the turnoff to the park. It is down a short street between two strip malls. They do have a small sign saying rv park with an arrow but it was missed with all the other signage in the area. Also, the cable tv did not work but we had satellite so we did not complain. Price was well within reason for full hook-ups. Shade trees, gravel pads, asphalt street. We camped at Sunset Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park just south of Bandon across from the airport. Couple running the office is very friendly. Quiet place. Very spacious not like other park in town where you feel like you are in a parking lot. Cell tower in back of park, so cell service very good. Wi-fi ok.

Ancient Redwoods RV Park, Redcrest, California

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great park along Avenue of the Giants. This is the second time we have stayed here. It is right along the route among the giants and easy to get to anywhere in this area. You are just walking distance from these fabulous trees. Two nice fruit/veggie stands in Pepperwood helped make the stay great. Sites are asphalt with grass in between. Well maintained. Owner is very nice and helpful. Has wi-fi but cell service only works in the office area as the owner had to buy a repeater from Verizon to get a signal for us to pick up. There are not any cell towers near. IF you are in this area, you need to stop and stay a night or two here. Plenty of room and you will enjoy the wonderful redwoods. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Horn Rapids RV Resort, Richland, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this park in the past 5 years or so and we were so disappointed in how much we feel this park has gone downhill. There are so many full time residents living here it is appalling. You can tell by all the "junk" that is laying around all the various rv's, mostly trailers. We were surprised there was one cab-over camper which had been removed from the truck and was on the pad and we never could figure out how many people were actually staying there. There were usually at least 3 - 4 vehicles there every night with two of them being old trucks filled with landscape remnants, grass clippings, limbs, etc. Many of the 5th wheels have insulation built around them which was very tacky looking. We just could not believe Horn Rapids would let their park look more like a transient place than the upscale park they used to be. The next time we come back to this area, we will be looking for a new place to camp. We camped at Horn Rapids RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We did not camp here but tried to get a spot as we were tired. They had plenty of vacancies but they were all 15amp. From what the lady told me they have very few 30 amps. When I had asked for 30 amp, she looked at me like I was weird. The place looks OK and has a nice view over a lake but BEWARE 30 amp service is a rarity. We camped at Piper's Glen Campground in a Motorhome.

Dave's RV Park and Campground, Vanderhoof, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Owners live in house on premise, very nice when checked in. As other reviewer said, some sites are a little narrow, but for overnighter, is just fine. Park is very nice. has a nice garden area with a large checkerboard to play. Nice flowers and seating area. Did not see until we were leaving. Wish had seen last night and would have sat out there and enjoyed the evening. The only thing I really did not care for but did use was the wifi. We had to pay $3.00 per device to use wifi. So that was $6.00 more to our nightly rate. In addition, $2.00 for 50amp service. I don't feel we got $6.00 worth for the wifi for one night but that was the only way we could get it for each of our devices. You could not move the code from your laptop to your iPad either. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
