Elks Lodge #657, Shawnee, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

This lodge has two campsites with 50A electric. They also have a beautiful 18 hole golf course, a fishing lake, playground, and a swimming pool. The problem we ran into, was that no one in the lodge knew where the RV sites were located. The property is sprawling and massive, so we had to hunt for them, making several wrong turns in the process. Here's how to find them: take the main lodge access road past the lodge. Veer right as it forks onto a gravel road. Follow the gravel road as it passes a grassy park area on your right. Just before the gravel road ends near some storage units, look to your right and you will see two sets of electrical hook-up's on the park grass, right in front of the lake. Park on the grass next to the hook-up's, with your windshield facing the lake. Beautiful view! Be careful as there is a nasty dip as you negotiate onto your turn onto the grass. The site on the right was the best, as the site on the left was harder to get into. It also had several large low-lying tree branches. You will need to unhook if you tow a car behind a motorhome. We found the lodge and it's members to be very friendly. The pool closes at 7pm. The gate at the lodge road entrance is locked around 11pm, and is re-opened around 7am. The place was abuzz with grounds crew at 7:30 am. You must be a B.P.O.E. member to camp here. We camped at Elks Lodge #657 in a Motorhome.

Treasure Lake RV Resort, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a private membership park. I stayed here as a Coast To Coast member, not as an individual park owner. The park imposes an $8 nightly utility surcharge on top of C2C points used to pay for a site. The park is beautiful so I initially had no problem with this fee. Upon check-in, I was told that I must choose a site in sections 2 or 4. These are the oldest sections of the park, but I had no problem with this policy since I was not an owner. The problem is, it was extremely difficult to find a decent site in either section that could accommodate a 40' RV. Many of the sites are shallow and narrow. We eventually found a site but had to settle for 30A service. I am flexible, but I don't think folks should have to pay a utility surcharge for 30A service. A previous reviewer said most sites have concrete pads - this is incorrect. On our entire row, only two sites had concrete pads and both were taken by permanent residents. The sewer system in our section (section 4) was not properly vented. This created a back-pressure in sewer hoses that resulted in a frequent outdoor sewer odor. The park itself is beautiful and has a lot to offer. They have a great little 50's diner, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and a wonderful concierge staff that helped us get great show tickets. It just a shame that the park doesn't invest in it's infrastructure. It could use better site maintenance, 50A upgrades and better sewer venting. We will come back to Branson, but we will stay elsewhere. We camped at Treasure Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Elks Lodge #1267 (Members only), Dalton, Georgia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here one night while traveling through the area. The power pedestals and water spigots are padlocked. You must obtain a key from the lodge bar. The RV parking area was very unkempt - it had 12" weeds throughout the camping area. The very first site on the right as you enter the RV parking area has 50 amp service, the other three have 30 amp. There was an empty motorhome being stored in one of the 30 amp sites when we were there. The lodge has a very nice pool, but we didn't take advantage of it. The campsites were very secluded and quiet, with the exception of a distant train horn every now and then, but we did not find it disturbing. The driveway apron entering/leaving the RV area can be a challenge - take it very slow. We camped at Elks Lodge #1267 (Members only) in a Motorhome.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We found the park to be exceptionally clean. All of the sites are pull-thru's. These sites are some of the longest and widest I've ever seen. Each site has a large level concrete pad. The free wifi worked well. We did not try the free cable TV hookup. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The resort's store is well stocked. I had only one complaint - I looked forward to using the adult spa after a long day of driving in windy weather. The spa water temp was only about 80F degrees. The spa jets don't deliver massaging hot water, they merely bubble cold water to the surface. Definitely not worth my cold walk back to my campsite. Other than that, a great park. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Love's truck stop near the resort, but the fuel prices were high. We found a Sam's Club five minutes east of the resort with RV access. They sell unleaded and diesel considerably less than Love's.

Sunrise RV Park, Kingman, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is conveniently located next to the I-40. We stayed here one

night while traveling through. I recommend reservations as the park was

almost full. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park was clean and

the WiFi worked very well. The pull-thru sites however were not designed

by anyone familiar with RV's. They are unlevel and the hookups are

extremely inconvenient, they are at the tail end of the site. Not a

problem if you pull in without a dingy, but the length of our 39'

motorhome plus dingy prevented us from accessing the sewer hookup. I

don't carry 40' of sewer hose. I had to run extensions for my electrical

and fresh water. The park is adjacent to I-40, so there is highway

noise, especially from passing semi’s. We camped at Sunrise RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rancho Oso RV & Camping Resort, Santa Barbara, California

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in this park as Thousand Trails members. Like most Thousand Trails parks, staffing and funding have been significantly reduced. The Rancho Oso staff have done a fine job however with their limited resources. The park is clean and well maintained for the most part. The pool is inviting and the little store is well stocked. All of the RV sites have an exceptionally clear view of the southern sky, so satellite reception is a breeze. The adult lodge is very clean and has WiFi. The park overall is quiet and relaxing. The access road entering/leaving the park can be tight and hazardous. Meeting another RV will require a great deal of maneuvering. If you tow a car behind your motorhome, I highly suggest that you disconnect it before taking the access road. You can do this on Paradise Road, about 2 miles south of the park. That way you have the option of backing up should you meet another RV. We camped at Rancho Oso RV & Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails, Groveland, California

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $5.00
Overall Rating:      

We last visited this park 8 years ago. Then, the park was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed it so much that we almost didn’t feel the need to drive into Yosemite. Our recent visit was drastically different. The park was unmaintained and understaffed. The grounds are unkempt and dirty looking. The family lodge was nothing like it use to be. Half of it is boarded off, the other half is empty. There are zero activities and no more paddle boats or swimming. Park security is non-existent. The security gate is un-manned and left open 24/7. Anyone can enter the park at their own free will, and roam around unchallenged. This would be an ok place to stay for one night. Personally, we will not return. We camped at Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Oak Glen Retreat, Yucaipa, California

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $6.00
Overall Rating:      

I agree with some of the recent posts. The park is under-going needed improvements. We were excited to find that they have added some 50 amp sites. There are only a couple of them so far, but the staff promises that more will be added in the future. We were disappointed however that there is no more WiFi in the lodge. I was told that this will return with other improvements. Overall, this is a nice place to stay outside of the L.A. area. It’s high enough to escape the heat & the smog. Fall is the best time to visit, as that’s when apple season is in full swing. Apple Annie’s Restaurant nearby serves delicious home cooked meals. Their bakery is irresistible as well. Expect to wait in line during the fall. Everything is within walking distance, we don’t even drag our car along anymore. We camped at Oak Glen Retreat in a Motorhome.
