You MUST be an Elk member to stay here. Campground is 6 miles south of Tillamook on Hiway 101. BEAUTIFUL setting near many trees, fresh water stream, and lush grass area--sites are fairly open. Good Wi-Fi. Overflow dry camping available for lower cost. Peaceful sitting. There are 9 - 50 amp spaces and 21 - 30 amp spaces. Spaces are gravel and some need leveling boards under tires. Staff is very helpful and friendly. GPS setting: 45/23/20 N, 123/47/57W. Lodge 1437 is located in the town of Tillamook NOT at the RV campground. Campground was new in 2010.

Good wi-fi. The office personnel is GREAT and helpful. If you have AT&T phone or data you will NOT get service here. They will loan you the office phone if you need to make a call. No real close place for a good restaurant, but just down the road in Klamath is a bar called Country Palace that serves a darn good burger--'old bar charm'. Close to Trees of Mystery which is worth a trip AND has a good restaurant called the Forest across the street. This RV park is mainly for fisherman, but can be used as a nice spot to explore the area. All sites are full grass, no gravel, or asphalt. Would stay here again for a few nights but not a full week.

Location is great. Can walk to town if you want. Enjoyed the fact this park is within the Napa Valley Expo fairgrounds so walking a dog and just walking among the trees in the fairgrounds was a pleasure. Nice wide, long sites will accommodate the largest of rigs. Great Wi-Fi and free. Oxbow area is just a few blocks away and provides many places to eat and shop for food. Good point to use as a 'jump off' point to visit the hundreds of wineries in the area. WATCH the entrance to the park as it is narrow and lane restricted.

1. Site #96 may be one of the longest, most beautifully landscaped, pull through sites we've ever stayed in. 2. Park is immaculately groomed with beautiful shade trees, grass, and great amenities. 3. Powerful wi-fi, but is tightly locked down so don't expect to use YouTube, Google groups etc. Can use Facebook, and most emails, etc. Just be sure you have something like Verizon Jetpack, or AT&T hotspots if you have to do any business work. But Betabel's wi-fi will help save your 'minutes'. We had good Verizon and AT&T data while here as well as good AT&T cell service. 4. Is located in a 'country' sitting so you need a toad to get to San Juan Bautista and other locales. San Juan Bautista is a must visit--kind of a hippy artistic community but do not miss taking the Tour of the Mission that dates back to 1777. Fantastic restoration. Also the short drive to Hollister is worth the time as is a visit to the Pinnacles State Park (about 40 minutes away from RV Park)--Pinnacles has awesome rock formations and neat hiking trails. You have to hike if you want to see the park as driving won't cut it. 5. Staff is friendly, and the pool looked nice, but we didn't use it. 6. Just minutes from Gilroy another must visit for stores, food, and activities---it is the garlic capital of the world. Ever have Garlic wine? 7. Would stay at this RV park again. Rate for California is very reasonable.

One of the best Elks RV campgrounds we've ever stayed in. Great food on 'special nights', had a car show while we were there, friendly bar. Level sites, great place to 'walk the dog'. Close to all amenities in town (toad driving close) and close to LOTS of wine tasting places throughout the area. Would DEFINITELY stay here again and again.

$30 rate included tax. This is what I call a 'specialty' RV facility, meaning you pretty much would stay here if you were using the shooting facility. GREAT shooting facility, look them up at their website. There are actually two RV campgrounds and this is the west one and only the west one currently has 50 amp service and only one that really has trees: lots of them. Spaces are carved out of the pinion and pine trees so if you want satellite TV be sure to tell them when you make reservations, or trees might block your line of sight. NO good AT&T service (E instead of 3g), and no WiFi unless you go to the Shotgun center. Verizon service was much better than AT&T. RV sites are a few miles back into the property on gravel/dirt roads so if you have a diesel pusher, be aware of dust situation. Since there are no street lights, evenings were 'dark skys' and very peaceful. Close proximity to Raton for places to eat, get groceries, etc. Staff was EXTREMELY nice. Would stay here again as they have plans to expand and offer other than shooting: like hiking and mountain biking.

Nightly rate was 38.11 which INCLUDED taxes. Rate was going to be much higher, about 45 but when we got there they had lowered the rate. Nice campground but spaces in western side are fairly tight maneuvering for larger rigs 40 and over. Nice 'wilderness' trails through campground that is surrounded with a nice pole fence. Lots of tent sites in this campground. Propane was expensive compared to local vendor but is available onsite. staff friendly. problems with their WiFi so we were without for three straight days. Once working was OK but pretty slow. ATT service was OK but not fast either. Not far from town activities and close to getting to visitor places. would stay here again or might try place on west end of town on next trip.

Date of Stay:

The 21 rate reflects a monthly rate, not nightly. Sites semi graveled, but each year they put in more gravel and sites are better. Drainage can be a problem in heavy rain. GREAT owners who'll bend over backwards to accommodate you. Close to town and all the Silverton area activities. Would stay here again. WiFi was iffy first week or so then got better and was reasonable although not fast, but cell tower is right next to park so we got good ATT and Verizon service.

Date of Stay:

Excellent WiFi if you get one of the spots closer to the casino itself: 3mbytes, which was fastest we had in three months. Free Continental breakfast was a nice touch, and could 'upgrade' meal for a reasonable amount money. Great access to their indoor pool, showers, laundry. If you get their players card and play a certain amount you get one night free for each night stayed. Will stay here instead of going to Durango in future. Restaurant had good specials almost everyday. Short drive to Durango and area attractions.

Very friendly and helpful manager. Went out of her way to make our visit comfortable. Sites are VERY wide in width. Plenty of room to park a 'toad' and/or trailer beside the motorhome or trailer. Nice 'jump off' point to visit this wonderful and scenic area.

Date of Stay:

Good dog park. Nice sites, BUT for the price, it should at least include a picnic table at the sites. You can get one but you have to 'upgrade' to a premium site. Convenient to a Casino and both the newer part of Temecula AND Old Temecula. Excellent location to visit 58 different wineries. Wish it wasn't so pricy, but this IS California and other than the picnic table problem, it has good amenities. Be prepared to put down a multitude of deposits if you want a bathroom key, etc. Making a reservation is NOT easy as they only take PHONE calls and ONLY certain times of the day. Would be nice if they came into the current century and used the web. Don't miss the EXCELLENT Mexican food at the corner market. Looks like fast food but it is prepared FRESH and is the best ever.

It is a crime to charge a LOT for Wi-Fi in this day and age and it is CRAPPY. Won't stay here again even though it is convenient to strip. Upper lots were noisy and VERY short for our larger rig. Tree branches overhung our site and were NOT trimmed. Is a good dog run but due to no free good Wi-Fi, short sites, and noise we'll stay elsewhere. Really needs some updating.

Date of Stay:

This is a good park--probably one of best 'values' in Las Vegas since the Silverton closed a few years ago. Yes, plane noise from Nellis, but can be tolerated. Good dog run facilities. VERY friendly, helpful staff. Great security in that they are gated. Will stay here again. Don't know why some people indicated in reviews they left as didn't feel safe. DEFINITELY safer than other parks on Boulder Highway that we've stayed in even though some of the sites were shorter than we like for our 41 foot rig and tow.

Date of Stay:

Great stopping off point on way to or from Vegas. Friendly staff, nice long pull throughs, good reliable power. Would stay here again without any hesitation.

Date of Stay:

Durango is a difficult place to find a reasonably priced RV spot. Spots at the Ignacio Casino are more reasonable but it is 30 minutes from Durango. We have stayed at Alpen Rose in the past and it hasn't changed. Nice but not worth what is being charged. Doesn't even have a 'work out' facility for the premium prices. The Wi-Fi has always been a problem and this trip was no different. They keep working on it but wasn't reliable. AT&T air card was EXTREMELY slow so if using a computer is important to you, then beware. I understand that Verizon is much better. The breakfast they serve is still a good value for the price. Older spots are under large trees so if you need satellite service request spots in the front of the park. Park is about 10 minutes from the north edge of town, not walkable distance.
