We aren't RV resort people. We want level sites in a safe, quiet park at a fair price and The Dunes more than met that. Are there RV's here that are the poster children for the corrosive effects of ocean front living? You betcha! Driving around and looking at many of the other RV parks in the area, most of them also had a few rough RV's in them. There is a small, tight knit little community that lives here at The Dunes year round. From what we could see, they were a combination of working poor and disabled but they were all pleasant and friendly. They all seem to look after each other and ride share to shop, dine and for doctors. We should all be so lucky to have people we can count on when the chips are down. The manager was friendly and went out her way to make sure we were happy here. Anyway, what we got for our $15 a night (Passport America rate) was an RV site with 66 cable channels that was off the road and quiet, with gorgeous sunsets out our front door. The bath house had older showers but they were quite clean with plenty of hot water. We also slept like babies with our windows open and the wonderful sound of the surf. There are also some tent sites that I would have enjoyed back in my tent-camping youth. I've paid a lot more for a lot worse. I'll happily come back to The Dunes again next time we visit Ocean Shores.

This is an OK RV park. During the week it's really quiet. On the weekends it fills up and is a very different place. Kids riding their bikes thru your site and groups sitting around talking loudly late into the night. All the sites have old washing machine tubs for fire pits. A couple of our neighbors burned a lot of trash and plastic which made for stinky fires, driving us into our RV with the windows closed. There's also a lot of deferred maintenance -- broken concrete patios, tree stumps, huge potholes and uneven sites. Leveling our RV was a challenge. We are trying to figure out the best way to drive out when we leave with the RV so we don't bottom out on the huge potholes. Also use care when walking around so you don't twist an ankle. The showers and restrooms are fairly clean. After wiping the floor outside the shower up with paper towels, I was glad I wore flip flops. The showers are coin operated so plan on spending a buck or so. The men's shower has a knob you have to turn just right or it won't work. Annoying but if you fiddle with it enough, you'll probably figure it out. Also recommend running hot water in the sink beforehand or your first quarter will likely go for getting hot water. They advertise a heated pool and rec room on their sign but both were closed during our stay. The laundry room was clean and the cost reasonable. You can tell this was a nice park but time and ocean elements have taken a toll. All in all, not the best RV park we've ever stayed in and not the worst.

If you're looking for a nice, clean RV park run by two of the nicest, most responsive on-site owners we've ever met, this is the place! These two owners are friendly and helpful. A fellow camper just let his two big dogs wander and do their business in our site. (We heard other campers yelling at this guy so we weren't the only ones). We asked the owner gentleman if he happened to have a picnic table so our stuff wouldn't get peed on. (I tend to get a little cranky when someone lets their dog pee on my BBQ.) Anyway, he had a table to us within 5 minutes. He also came by to make sure we got the cable box up and going. Not intrusive: just attentive. The showers are spotless. Ditto with the restrooms. This is a nice quiet park close to a major vehicle access for beach driving. Even when they were busy, it didn't feel cramped here. Also close to shopping with two of the area grocery stores just down the street. We really enjoyed our time here and will be back next time we're in the area.

The marina was a pleasant surprise. Everyone who worked there was pleasant and extremely helpful. The sites are all on asphalt which is good at the coast. A lot of the campers are here for the season so it's not unusual to have a motorhome, boat, canopy/carport, and car crammed into a site: but it's a marina so it's what it's built for. The showers/restrooms are older but spotless. While we were here, our neighbor caught two youngsters on bicycles around his truck and called police. The park increased nighttime patrols in response. Overall, a good value and we'll be back!

Poche's was a pleasant surprise - a very pleasant surprise. We ended up here only because it was a Passport America park and we needed an overnight stop. It was frankly hard to leave the next day. Poche's is on our short list of parks we will definitely go back to when we are in that part of the world again. The park is designed around three large lakes and all but 11 of the sites are right on the water (they are just across the road). The folks at the office were extremely friendly and helpful. Fishing is a huge draw here and since these are privately owned manmade lakes, no fishing licenses are needed. There are also several cabins for rent here. It was nice walking around the lakes and seeing all the folks sitting out in lawn chairs with lines in the water. They have a large clubhouse on one of the lakes and there are fish cleaning stations all over. It's a really well thought out and constructed park. The only warning I would give is to follow the directions to the park carefully. All the turns were well-signed so no problem there. These are rural roads and if you miss your turns, there aren't many places to safely turn an RV around. It's a few miles off the highway on some narrow Louisiana rural roads but Poche's is well worth the drive.

Jacksonville NAS is probably one of the busiest bases we've stayed on. You have to check in at the office adjacent to the auto shop fronting Birmingham Street. They have a large parking spot in front of the Recreation office for parking your RV. Most of the folks who worked in the office were extremely friendly and helpful -- probably some of the best we've encountered at any of the parks. One guy though was more than a little unprofessional, unless you consider frequent cussing and especially dropping the F-bomb in an office setting appropriate. We're not prudes but it was a little surprising. Everyone else though were top-notch. Watch the traffic lights and street directions as they change at different times of the day. As soon as we arrived at the RV park, the host came over to welcome us. We really enjoyed our time here. The restrooms were nice and clean as was the laundry room. The golf course is right across the street from the park. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet here. Site 19 is on the waterfront and on the map, looks wonderful, till you walk by it and see the signs warning that alligators are frequent visitors to this site as well. Yes, you are in Florida. The other Florida issue here is 'sand spurs'. If you have dogs or try walking barefoot in many areas of Florida, you will discover these nasty little things. They really weren't too bad until we tried walking the dogs in the area between Mustin Street and RV sites 31-38. We ended up having to carry both dogs back to the RV and sit down outside for some serious sand spur removal. All in all, a nice park on a nice base.

This is our third or fourth stay here at Cajun RV Park. The owners and employees are really friendly and helpful. It's a nice place to stay. It's located right on Beach Blvd and you can walk across the street or drive a short distance to watch a gorgeous Gulf sunset. Yes, it's right next to a railroad track but for some reason, the train noise isn't intrusive. I guess it goes by so quickly that by the time your sleeping brain realizes a train is going by, it's gone. They have a nice fenced dog park with benches and water. There were a number of dogs there and we really enjoyed letting the hairy kids stretch their legs and play with other dogs. We walked them over once when a woman was over playing with her dog alone. She yelled over as we started to walk in the gate, warning us that her dog didn't like other dogs. It was a little disconcerting to encounter an aggressive dog like that in an RV park. We left and walked the dogs around the park instead. The first time we were there was right after they reopened after Katrina. Biloxi continues to rebuild after that monster hurricane blew them off the face of the earth. Biloxi and the surrounding area remains one of our favorite places in the US. We love it here. The park is mostly grass with gravel roads throughout. Even with all the large shade trees, getting a satellite signal has never been a problem for us. They have a lovely covered patio area in the middle of the park with rocking chairs and a large gas fire pit for relaxing at the end of the day. Yes, this is a nice park.

This is a really clean and tidy RV park and was a nice overnight stop. After getting through Houston traffic (not for the meek), we were so glad to find this place and set up. It is really one of the cleanest RV parks we've seen. The restrooms and showers are next to the swimming pool and were spotless. The laundry room too was well-kept. The wide paved roads are easy to maneuver. There is also a security gate to further help you feel safe. The large lake in the middle of the park really feels refreshing and relaxing. There is a large and semi-fenced dog area adjacent to a creek on the east side of the RV park. We didn't use it because it was just an overnighter but it was an option. The sites are paved and really level. We had no problem getting a strong satellite signal. The grass/landscaping is well-maintained. While not particularly large, the site was plenty big enough for us. This really is a nice park. We made the mistake of turning right when we left the park in the morning. The navigator (me) thought it would be a good way to get back on the interstate. I didn't realize until we got there that the road I'd planned on taking was a toll road so we had to keep going for quite a while. If I had it to do over, we would have turned left out of the park and taken Barker Cypress Road back to the highway. It would have been much faster. All in all, an enjoyable stay with really friendly folks.

Coyote Run has a lot of issues that all come together to make this a less than great RV park. This was just an overnight stop for us so we wanted something we could just pull into and not disconnect. When we arrived, the office was closed so we waited for someone to come. The host's wife came over and when we asked if there were any sites available, she said no, that all their open sites were pull thru and for big rigs only. I have to admit, we're still scratching our heads over that one. Luckily, the host arrived and checked us in while his wife talked to another woman who came in looking for a long term site to rent. Hopefully she fared better with the wife than we did. The park is close to the highway so there is lots of road noise. Also, the railroad runs close by so you will get lots of that noise as well. It's sometimes pretty breezy in eastern Washington so blowing dust is an on-going problem here. Road noise, trains, and less than helpful wives aside, the worst thing about this park was the smell. It wasn't just a little bothersome. It was downright noxious. I'm not sure what it's from but it was bad. On days when the wind is right, it's probably not a problem. When we were there, it was a major problem and kept us indoors with the doors and windows closed and scented candles burning. Luckily we were had no problem getting a strong satellite signal so stayed inside and watched lots of TV.

This is a modern 'resort-type' RV park in an urban area. We just stayed a couple of nights on our way through but will come back next time we're in the area. There was a large tournament of some kind in the area so there were lots of kids and teenagers in the park. Our site was right next to the basketball courts. The first night, we had a large group of kids out playing basketball until well-after midnight. Trust me, you don't sleep well with a bouncing basketball that close to your bedroom. The next day, we stopped by the office to confirm 'quiet times'. We told them what had happened the night before and they made sure we had their nighttime number. They stressed that if it happened again to please call so they could take care of it immediately. It didn't but it was good to know they cared enough about their guests to want to take care of any problems quickly. Our site was right on the end so nice and roomy with plenty of green grass. We had no problems getting a satellite signal and all our utilities worked great. All in all, a nice park with great managers and staff.

This is a really nice RV park located just over the hill from the Little Big Horn. The park is located on a hill but the sites are nicely terraced so we had no problem leveling our RV. The folks are really friendly and the restrooms/showers are some of the cleanest we've ever seen. The people who were in our site before us didn't clean up after their dogs but that's on them, not the RV park. This is a really nicely done park with a large area set aside for tent users. We would happily come back to the '7th' again next time we're in the area.

This is a tidy little RV park not too far off I-15. There is a busy road at the south end of the park and it's close to the highway but traffic noise didn't bother our sleep at all. The sites are gravel and grass but nicely level with quality picnic tables. There's lots of grass around for the dogs and park seemed spotless. There's an open grassy area in front of the park that you can let your dogs off-leash to play in. It's not fenced and traffic is pretty heavy in the area so we just walked our dogs on leashes but it was still nice to let them sniff around a grassy area. This is a nice park that we'd be more than happy to visit again.

This is a very small RV park at the north side of West Yellowstone. It's really just a large, gravel parking area on a corner lot in a mostly residential area but we enjoyed our stay here. The restrooms/showers are small and tight to maneuver in but the hosts keep them spotless. You can almost set your watch by their cleaning schedule. Really, the only issue we had was the locals driving way too fast down the gravel alley next to the park and kicking up dust. You really can't fault the RV park for that. The hosts were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We really liked it here, especially after our experience at another RV park across town. We will be back next time we visit Yellowstone.

This was our second stay at Jim and Mary's and hopefully won't be our last. We really like this park. They do a great job keeping it clean and the restrooms/showers/laundry rooms are always spotless. Everyone that works there says 'hello' or waves as you walk around. The landscaping and flowers are out of the this world and make this place special. We usually leave our dogs in the RV if it's too warm to safely take them with us when we're sightseeing or running errands. We've asked those camping around us if the dogs were a problem while we were gone and have always gotten the same answer...."we thought you'd taken them with you" or "we didn't even know you had dogs in there" -- coast to coast, it's always been the same answer. It's something we've always been aware of it because we've camped around people who have noisy dogs that bark non-stop. Needless to say, it was a surprise when we got a call from the office staff here asking us to come and get our dogs. Apparently someone had complained to the office that they were barking. The work was done on our truck when the call came in and we were already headed back so it wasn't a problem for us to get there quickly. They were friendly about it too and didn't make us feel like problem guests. I'm not sure what set them off or what was going on as they really aren't 'yippers'. We also talked to a guy who works there who had been doing work much of the day right by our RV who hadn't heard a thing out of them -- so it's a mystery. The important thing was that we got back quickly to address the problem and the lady who called us was friendly and professional. Jim & Mary's remains one of our favorite RV parks. Walking around the park in the morning and evenings is always a pleasure here.
