Matanuska River Park, Palmer, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

I'm the summer park host and just wanted to get this park "in the system." We get a lot of good comments from campers and was surprised nobody had reviewed the park yet. This is a "bare bones" park run by the borough -- if you need a clubhouse, Wi-Fi, etc., you'll have to go elsewhere. But a lot of people use us as a "base station" as they explore other parts of the state and if I wasn't the park host this is the place I'd camp in the Mat-Su Valley, for sure. We camped at Matanuska River Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tombstone Territories RV Resort, Huachuca City, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2009 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

These are some of the largest sites we've seen -- they're all about 40' X 80'. In the desert with good mountain views, and only about a dozen miles to Tombstone. The coolest thing about this place is the clubhouse which is open 24 hours a day. There is a nice pool table, ping pong, indoor shuffleboard, large book lending library, large TV with VHS and DVD, sound system for jam sessions, heated indoor swimming pool, and etc. It has one of the nicest laundry rooms we've seen. The only tiny negative is the only bathrooms with showers are in the clubhouse -- seems like a park this size would have another building on the other side of the grounds. The management is very friendly. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount and we'd stay here again in a heartbeat. We meant to stay two nights, but our first week is up tomorrow and we're going to pay for 2-3 more nights. We camped at Tombstone Territories RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Usery Mountain Regional Park, Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2008 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We're actually still in this campground as I write this--we keep paying for "just a few more days" but we're about to hit the 14-day limit (if they have room and you move sites, word is they will overlook the limit). The park has many ranger-led activities--my son has been on more hikes the past couple weeks than ever before. And the "Brown Bag" lectures at lunchtime are fun and very educational. We've seen many coyotes right in the park--the last one a couple days ago about 25 feet from the trailer. And the views, especially at night, are very cool. Lots of cactus, lots of wildlife, lots of events to participate in. It's now become one of our very favorite campgrounds. Like someone else has mentioned, only the lack of sewer hookup kept this from getting a 10. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Santa Nella RV Park, Santa Nella, California

Date of Stay: November, 2008 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Like someone mentioned, the sites are short, so you park kitty-wampus across two of them, but for us in a 26' trailer it was no big deal. At the time we had a half-ton pickup and a 1-ton van -- there was room to park both of those AND the trailer in the spot. The park has no frills, but the bathrooms and showers were nice and clean. It's also right across the street from a Starbucks (my office on the road). The dog walk area has some *huge* climbing trees the kids loved -- they lived in that area for a couple days. We ended up staying for a week and decided not to stay longer because our teenage son was taking just a little too much notice of a teenage girl who was also there. =:) Time to hit the road! We camped at Santa Nella RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Millerton Lake State Recreaton Area, Fresno, California

Date of Stay: November, 2008 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park in a very nice setting -- except I need wi-fi for my work and the closest was 45 minutes away. 15 minutes of that is getting from the turn-off into the park back to the RV camping area -- it seems to take forever! The coyotes howling at night and the zillions of stars almost make up for the distance. The bathrooms and showers were typical of CA state parks, clean and decent. I thought the $29 off-season fee was a little high, especially comparing it to some of the weekly rates of private campgrounds, but we liked camping there and the hosts were *very* friendly. We camped at Millerton Lake State Recreaton Area in a Travel Trailer.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: November, 2008 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We planned on staying a night, then switched that to a week, and now we're into our second week here. It is SO cool to be right in among the orange trees. Even though we're here a little early for them to be ripe, the manager gave us permission to pick a few and the ones we've picked taste great! How cool is it to step out of your trailer and pick an orange to eat? The bathrooms and showers are the cleanest (and largest) we've seen on our trip so far. The lodge is very cool looking and we've enjoyed watching our DVDs on their large screen TV. The only reason I didn't give them a 10 is because the pool table and exercise room both say nobody under 18 allowed. It would be nice if they said nobody under 18 without parent present, or something like that. Would we stay here again? If we're anywhere near Bakersfield, there's nowhere else we'd stay. We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Boardman Marina Park, Boardman, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2008 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice place to park. We only stayed one night but enjoyed it. Wi-Fi antennas throughout the park made it easy to get a good signal. Nobody in the office when we pulled up but a sign told us what to do, where to go, and how much to pay. It was pretty quick and easy. The only downside was the next morning there seemed to be a "smell" coming off the river. Don't know if that's normal or not, but it wasn't pleasant. Not horrible, just not roses and candy. Kids and parents all liked the park, seeing the boats on the river was cool. We'd love to stay there again. We camped at Boardman Marina Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cannon Beach RV Resort, Cannon Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2008 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Nice-looking park with a lot of trees and grass. Couldn't get a decent Wi-Fi signal until I moved (the second day) to a site closer to the office. The kids loved the indoor pool -- but closing at 8PM during the winter months is bogus. Actual doors on the shower stalls instead of just curtains? Nice! We had a coupon for 2 nights for the price of 1 -- except the fine print says it's based on full-season rates. Sheesh! If the current price for one night is X, don't charge me Y just because I'm using your coupon. Made them seem kind of cheap. However, it was close to the beach, and we'd stay there again in a minute. We camped at Cannon Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Riverside RV Park, Canby, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2008 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

My first thought upon pulling in was that we should go elsewhere, but inertia took over and we decided to stay one night -- this is now our third night, so our first impression wasn't quite right. It does seem like there an awful lot of trailers crammed in here -- this isn't one of those "park-like settings" RV parks. But the management here are very friendly and while the bathrooms/showers are on the old side, they were clean. One disappointment is the Wi-Fi -- our space is *very* close to the office where the internet router is located, but I've had to sit on their deck in order to get a signal. This wouldn't be a "destination park" for us, but if we're traveling through Oregon again we'd stop for the night (or three). We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
