Spokane RV Resort, Deer Park, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We originally reserved for seven nights but later phoned to come in four nights prior to our initial reservation. As this was extending over the Labor Day weekend I was a little apprehensive but the staff managed to find us a site for the duration of our planned stay. Arriving on a Saturday evening after 4pm we found the office closed but our site package had been left out and available for us. Initially, we had back in site #81 that lies along the western edge of section A and also borders the fairway. This was an asphalt site that has a slope from back to front for drainage, a concrete patio, picnic table and seat. The utilities are located towards the rear of the pad that meant I had to go deep in order to reach the control panel for my rig. By doing this, the rear 8' of our RV was beyond the asphalt. Not a big problem until the sprinklers came on during the night and raked across the back cap, waking us with a bit of a start. After three nights we were able to move to site #145 in section B. This was a long (80'+) and wide (25'+) back-in concrete pad on the northern side of the resort. There is a slight front to rear slope for drainage but otherwise perfectly level and equipped with a picnic table. The neighbours were seasonal occupants and very pleasant to chat with although we didn't have too much interaction. For both sites the 50amp power, water, sewer and cable TV connection worked perfectly. I was advised the water pressure was high but we didn't find it to be too high for the plumbing on the RV. For a busy holiday period the pool was very quiet and we enjoyed it to ourselves for most of the time. The staff/hosts were very pleasant on the odd occasion that we interacted. The bathrooms are spotlessly clean and the whole resort is very well maintained. The laundry has eight washing machines and eight driers all at $2 a load with change and detergent available. Wi-Fi is included in the price but sometimes extremely slow. We camped at Spokane RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

From the West, stay on Crawford Ave until passing the 76 gas station then turn LEFT. From the East (hwy2) turn RIGHT about 150m prior to the gas station. Good grocery store (Yokes) in Deer Park. New Costco in north Spokane has 30 pumps - all with diesel.

Campland RV Resort, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ and exclude the tax. A very large (approximately 150 sites), structured CG with all RV parked in rows. Mainly pull through sites although some back-in sites were available along the perimeter. The sites are level, gravel about 65' long and wide enough for a big rig with opposing slides. Convenient from Hwy 16 but along a short, washboard gravel road that in dry weather is extremely dusty and I imagine in wetter conditions is very muddy - not the CG fault or responsibility. The interior roads of the campground are dirt and gravel. Power and water services located towards the rear of the site in a site numbered utility post. Water pressure is apparently very high and they recommend using a regulator when bringing this to your attention at registration. The sewer drop was located more to the centre of the length of the site. A fire pit & new picnic bench table are also provided but only wood purchased at their campground may be burned. Pay for showers are available at $2 (Cdn) for four minutes and there is a small pool that we did not use. This is available between 11am - 8pm but had a price tag of $8 per adult. I believe there was a daily family tag for about $14. Both charges seem a little steep when paying to stay here in the first place. Wi-Fi is included in the price and you are given an access code valid for the duration of your stay. It did work pretty well for checking emails or browsing. The grass is very neatly manicured but to our surprise at about 2pm in the afternoon we were asked to move in order to allow the irrigation system 30 minutes watering the grass. I noticed a little later that several families where huddled under the overhang of their 5er or between the hitch and tow-ball of their TT. Apparently, there is a $250 fine applied directly to your CC if found to have driven on their grass. We camped at Campland RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Bry-Mar RV Park & Campground, Brandon, Manitoba

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $. Once on property the office can be found at the back of a large shop building. There are steps and also a wheelchair ramp providing access. Parking outside the office is plentiful but the check-in process was quick and easy. We had no reservation however, I had emailed ahead to check they had space. We were given what is a back in site but told to drive in from the opposite end and through a vacant site slightly offset at the back of us. The lady in the office was pleasant as she processed my details. Sites are grass and dirt. Ours needed some slight leveling from side to side. The site was long enough for our 40' 5er and truck with plenty of room both front and rear. We didn't connect to the sewer but the drop was located about midway along the correct side and not too far from the water supply. This had a good pressure. I was advised this was a 40 amp site (never come across that before). There was a 30 amp connection but with both AC's running and the EMS showing 32 amps drawn we didn't trip the breaker. Sites are near to one another but between units there is a short strip of privacy fencing. All internal roads are gravel and dust. There is a large childrens play area with swings and other equipment. There is also an amphitheatre with stage area that I noticed as I walked around. I'm not sure about other areas but there is a 3D map that appears to depict some sort of theme park setting - perhaps something for the future? I didn't use the showers or toilets but the were clean and newer looking. The disabled toilet area is behind a separate door at the back of the office building. The laundry has three washing machines and three driers. $2.50 for washing , $3 for drying. Although this is only a 150m from the TCH, traffic noise didn't bother us. Definitely worth considering an overnight stay if traversing Canada and I did notice several signs indicating visitor attractions not too far from the CG. We camped at Bry-Mar RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Located along the east bound side of the TCH about 6km east from the town of Brandon this is not particularly well sign posted, save for a sign about 1km before the turn directly off the four lane highway and another set back and parallel to the highway. If travelling west, there is a short track across the meridian directly opposite the entrance. Good grocery shopping, gas and diesel in Brandon

Crystal Lake Campground, Vermilion Bay, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ before tax. This is our second year visiting Crystal Lake, a large but low volume campground. Large because it is in a parcel of land about 40 acres in size. Low volume because there are only a handful of spaces. The wife and co-owner is very helpful and was able to find us a 100'+ level, asphalt, site with 50/30 & 20 amp, water and sewer. We also scored what I would suggest is their best pull-through site, #2. This has a couple of large conifer trees that afford some shade and screening between site #1 & 2 in addition to the strip of grass about 30' wide. All sites appear to have a fire pit and picnic bench table. This husband and wife team are constantly busy, even on a Sunday, mowing the grass, collecting garbage from waste bins placed between sites and generally maintaining the campground. Their high work ethic really shows and this CG is very well presented. The utilities worked perfectly during our stay and are well placed (for my rig) along the site. Wi-Fi is included in the cost of the site and worked well enough to open emails and browse web sites. Water is provided from the spring fed lake adjacent to the CG. The owners are confident that it is safe to drink but government regulations mean they have to show a "Boil Water" advisory. We drank the water and suffered no ill effects. The washrooms are clean and tidy. Since my first visit the owners have clearly indicated which showers are male and female but I didn't use them showers because we used our onboard facilities. There is a small laundry for a $2 charge, payable at the office. This really is a great little campground and most definitely the best we have stayed at both years while passing through Ontario. Whenever we are back out this way I would most certainly look to stay here again. The opportunity to relax is stunning and after several days of driving this is a wonderful place to rest for a few days. We camped at Crystal Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Behind the office is a soft, sandy beach area providing access to a safe swimming space. A variety of canoes and kayaks are available to rent. The lake is really beautiful and has a short trail the heads from the CG. If there is one word of caution, it is within earshot of a railroad line and the trains, although not frequent, do announce their presence. Small grocery store in Vermilion Bay (10 minutes away) that has most essential food items.

Wild Goose Lake Campground, Greenstone, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

The price is in Cdn $ before tax. We arrived here after driving all day from Iroquois Falls, ON which is about 550km away. We had no reservation and decided to give it a try based on the reviews we'd read. Leaving the main highway you drive a short way along a dirt/gravel road following the signs. Be careful though as there is another, similar named resort, a few hundred meters before you arrive at this place. Once through the entrance drive up the short hill, following the signs to the office that overlooks the lake. The owner greeted me and offered me a pull-through site for the night. This was sandy soil but fairly level, nestled in amongst some shrubs and trees and between some seasonal residents. Most of the sites here do appear to be seasonal but they also look to be expanding the CG with newer, grass or sandy soil sites. Our site had 30 amp power, sewer and water that was not sanctioned for drinking (according to the notice on the supply connection). My guess would be that it is drawn directly from the lake. It wasn't possible for me to fire up the AC because my PI EMS repeatedly shut down the power due to low voltage - showing 106 or less. Also, there wasn't a breaker re-set on the power post. The laundry had two washers and two dryers, although one dryer was defective. Washing appears to be $2 per load. The laundry was untidy but this may be down to the people using it and not clearing up after themselves. The washrooms were functional but we didn't use those or the showers that are $1 for ten minutes according to the note I read. This is far enough from the highway that traffic noise is not a problem. There is a kids play area as well as the lake to occupy them. We camped at Wild Goose Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cameron's Beach Trailer Park, Iroquois Falls, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ excluding tax. Entry to the park is controlled by a barrier remotely operated from the office some distance away. Once through there I located the office down near the lake and requested a space for a couple of nights. Having a 40' 5er, the owner suggested that she took me to look at what they had available in order to see if we could fit. Having seen the sites and being advised that some were only available for one night, I took that option and booked for just the one night. If paying by credit card (Visa or MC) there is a $2 per night fee (not per booking). The site was a fairly level sand/dirt pull-through with 30 amp power, water and sewer. The utilities were located fairly central along the site and on the correct side. There was no breaker on the power post and water pressure was pretty low. As soon as I switched on the power we had a low voltage warning with less than 104 volts. For that reason we decided not to engage the AC despite the 29oC evening temperatures. The site had been raked prior to us coming in but my wife found several small piles of dog excrement in between the trees separating us from the vacant neighbouring site. We had a picnic bench and fire pit but due to the flies (not the fault of the CG) we remained indoors for the evening. I did take a walk out to the bathrooms and found them to be pretty clean despite the heavy use they get. Showers are pay showers ($1 Cdn in 25c coins for 8 minutes). Most of the sites here are seasonal. Some very well cared for, some not so and in need of some TLC. Landscaping is very marginal once through the entrance with many sites having either very long, wispy grass or a variety of mats covering the floor. The owner (or manager) was very helpful, trying to accommodate us but I doubt we'd stay We camped at Cameron's Beach Trailer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Waterways Campground, Cheboygan, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We made a late reservation and got a site large enough for a 40' fifth wheel with 50 amp power, water and sewer connections that all worked as expected. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner who checked us in and later, during our stay, I was pleasantly surprised when, without any further interaction, he remembered my name. Our site was grass but wasn't level from side to side and it took several layers of the orange blocks to bring the passenger side up. Interior roads are gravel and there is a 5mph speed limit. There are plenty of trees within the campground, many of those are fruit trees which may attract wasps later in the year. Being close to the M-27 and M-33 roads, I did notice quite a lot of traffic noise, especially trucks using their jake brakes. There is a boat launch and mooring at the campground which is accessible for campground residents. Some of the sites appear to be taken by seasonal guests but from my experience there are lots of good sites available for transient RVers such as myself. The washroom were always clean and had a smell of fresh paint. There was a notice to indicate the washrooms closed at 10pm but I didn't find that to be the case. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Port Huron Township RV Park, Port Huron, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We called in here late in the afternoon on a very hot day after having driven down from Mackinaw. The CG is easy to find, located just off the interstate prior to crossing the bridge in to Canada (travelling east). Fortunately, the reception lady was able to give us a space on a (Canadian) holiday weekend, that we could shoe-horn our 40' 5er in to. Although it did take the help of a couple of other guest who uprooted some marker posts, enabling us to squeeze in. On the site we had the utility posts are shared which meant that for us, power and water was on our door side and the cable and hose ran across the site and under the rig. With that said, the power was a stable 120v 50amp supply and the water came at a good pressure. We didn't bother hooking up to sewer, although it was there if we needed it. This appears to be a very sociable CG with several organized activities (pot luck, coffee mornings, etc.). Nearby we found diesel at a very good price when compared to what we'd been paying elsewhere in MI and certainly what I expect we'll be shelling out for in ON. Despite being so close to a major interstate, traffic noise wasn't really noticeable while the AC was running. We found this to be a good stopping point if travelling too or from Canada at the Port Huron/Sarnia crossing point. One thing to consider. If using a credit card, there is a separate charge - in our case $4. We camped at Port Huron Township RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Green Acre Park, Waterloo, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

The price indicated is in Cdn $. This is a very large campground occupied by mainly seasonal guests. There are, however, approximately 80 assorted sites for short-term guests. 
On arrival the check-in was easy and we were given an escort to our site. This was about the only interaction we had with staff during our week-long stay. We had a site that was just long enough for our truck and 40' fifth wheel trailer. The site was a mix of gravel and dirt with a narrow patch of grass separating us from our neighbours on both sides. On our door side we had a very uneven brick patio area with weeds growing through and a picnic bench. Towards the front end of the site we had a fire pit. The sewer, 50 amp power and water utilities were conveniently located for where the layout of our RV has them located. The utilities also worked very well despite the huge draw on power caused by the excessive heat and people having to use their AC most of the time. The site itself had quite a slope from front to rear and a slight slope from side to side which I was able to handle thanks to the orange blocks and the hydraulic levelling system on my rig. Other than the bathrooms and laundry ($3 to wash) we did not use other guest facilities such as the pool. The bathrooms were always clean during our visit despite never seeing them closed for service. Wi-fi is included in the price and varied in ability. One thing to note here; every time you either log off or shut down the computer for a few minutes you then had to log back in using the user id and code provided. Despite the number of people and it also being over the Canadian and US major holiday dates this campground was very quiet. This is a long drive from Toronto and not an ideal location if you're using that as a base to see the city or visit family and friends living there. With that said, it is one of the better RV campgrounds in the area and I would consider staying here again. We camped at Green Acre Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Glen Rouge Campground, Toronto, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is on the very eastern edge of Toronto and the price per night is in Cdn $ without the $10 reservation fee or tax (13%). Having travelled from Waterloo, ON this place was pretty easy to find, located a short distance from the 401 at the bottom of a slight dip in the Kingston Road. Signage from the street isn't great but out GPS took us straight in. Check-in was simple but I didn't get any map of the CG and drove in using memory from when I'd made a reservation. Despite the proximity to the highway, noise is buffered by the trees and barely noticeable. The interior road signs could do with improvement because shortly after entering the park the single lane in/out road splits in to three separate roads without any indication about what sites are on which road. The interior roads are paved and do go around in a series of loops. The site was very long and big enough for our 40' 5er and truck. It also appeared to be quite wide but that may be because we had nothing parked next to us in the adjacent two sites for the duration of our stay. The site was grass and dirt (where someone had previously had a carpet for an extended time killing the grass). We had a picnic table and fire pit. Water pressure was good as was the 30 amp power we had. There are no sewer sites here which is a let down and meant I had to go out and buy a waste water tote to empty the grey tanks on the rig. There is only one set of CG washrooms that are cleaned but due to the volume of people using them, soon began to look untidy. What you don't see from their map is these are located atop of a hill about 30' above the CG level. There is a steep path or set of stairs to access these but for those in a wheelchair or other medical condition it could be very challenging to reach. Wi-Fi was good and is included in the price. There are lots of trees that provide good shade and a habitat for wildlife. Raccoons are prevalent so ensure everything is secured overnight. We camped at Glen Rouge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Jack Pine Lodge Campground, Manistique, Michigan

Overall Rating:

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon having made an on-line reservation only the evening before and to my surprise the campground was almost empty. Check-in was very easy at the bar/restaurant just off the M-94. The staff member here was very friendly and provided us with good directions to our site. Once we got in to our site, the host took the time to come over and introduce himself which I thought was a nice, friendly gesture. We had site #19 as it is located on the end of a row with no neighbours on our door side - just ferns and trees. The site was long enough for our 40' 5er plus truck. The pad was made of gravel but sloped towards the back and required some leveling on the door side to bring us straight. The utilities are located at the back of the site which required us to use an extension hose for water as our intake is towards the front of the rig. Our 35' 50 amp cable was long enough to reach. We had a fire pit available but didn't use it. We also had a large picnic bench that we did use. There is no cable and we couldn't find any OTA tv signals but their wi-fi was flawless. The washrooms are clean with good access for the disabled. We didn't use the showers but they looked ok. The TP is extremely thin, single ply paper. Perhaps something to do with the septic system. There is a laundry with two washers and two dryers. $2 for a wash, $1 for the dryer. The grounds are well maintained and I did see the staff raking the sites when the opportunity arose. For children there is a play area close to the restaurant. Food at the bar/restaurant is excellent and I would recommend the burger or the beef sandwich. Traffic noise from the M-94 is minimal and didn't bother us at all. The flies and other bugs are ferocious but manageable. We really enjoyed our three nights here, feeling very safe and would certainly stop here again when next in the area. We camped at Jack Pine Lodge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Top O' The Morn Resort & Campground, Iron River, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

In May we tried to reserve a weekend here for late June but found the CG was already pretty booked up. The owners were very responsive and placed us on a wait list for any last minute cancellations but ultimately we could only have one night there on an electric/water site. Our location actually placed us right in amongst a seasonal family and we felt as though we would be encroaching on their space if we sat outside. Not the fault of anyone, just our feeling. The site we did have was an old but fairly level concrete pad that we squeezed our 40' 5er on to. It was nicely shaded and had a large grassy space but like I mentioned, merged in to our neighbours fire pit and green space. The hosts/owners or managers (not sure) were very responsive and tried hard to find us a serviced space but due to the popularity of this location we could only have the one night. Power and water was very good and their wi-fi was excellent. There are some really nice locations within the CG which also has access to a lake in which you can swim, water-ski, kayak or canoe. The CG is far enough from Hwy 2 that you cannot hear it and no trains! We didn't try for any tv stations and don't have satellite. There is an on-site bar and laundry that we didn't make use of. The washrooms were older but clean, located behind the office/bar area and accessible 24/7. This is very much a family orientated CG but still quiet enough for a couple in their mid 50's with no kids or pets and we would definitely stay here again.

Grand Forks Campground, Grand Forks, North Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This former KOA is located alongside the busy I-29 and suffers from a lot of traffic noise but with that said, we did know this prior to arriving. Access to the CG is via the Hwy 81 intersection and after passing a Flying J travel centre, continue down the road until it becomes a washboard gravel/dirt track. The CG is then in a copse of Cottonwood trees on the right. Check in was easy even though we arrived without a reservation. The first site I was given was a little too short for my 40' 5er but was quickly changed when I asked for a longer site that would allow me to stay connected and not hang out in to the drive lanes. Water pressure was good and the 50 amp power was steady during our stay. The sewer connection was simply a small diameter pipe going straight down with a chunk of paving covering the hole. Sites are gravel/dirt and ours appeared to be fairly level. As others have mentioned, the trees could do with a trim to enable large MH's and full profile 5ers to maneuver without risking injury to roofs. Between sites there is a small strip of grass for separation and a few scattered shrubs. I'm not 100% sure where the railroad tracks were located but the trains running along them were loud enough to be very noticeable during the night. The bathrooms were old but clean and there is a laundry but we didn't venture inside. I did notice several warnings about rinsing either your rig or tow vehicle which is actively discouraged with a $25 charge for doing either one. This was Ok for a night's stopover while driving towards our final destination but not for anything else - for us anyway. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Indian Head Campground (formerly Indian Head KOA), Indian Head, Saskatchewan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ and include tax. We arrived here during the midweek, without an advanced booking, after a 900km drive along the TCH. The registration was quick and easy, facilitated by helpful staff that also escorted us to the site. My GS card had expired but if I chose to re-subscribe prior to departure the following morning they offered to honour the discount. This former KOA is located on the eastern end of the small-town and literally yards from the TCH and a railroad line. The highway isn't really a noise problem but the three trains that pulled through the town during the night did announce their arrival with long blasts of the horn because of un-gated crossing points. The site we had was level gravel and about 100' long. Lined with trees, it afforded some degree of privacy and still allowed our opposing slides to fully extend. Some sites are also very open and would allow good satellite reception. Each site appears to have a small patio equipped with a picnic bench and a fire pit (made from a washing machine drum). Internal roads are dusty in warm weather but would easily turn to mud & dirt when it rains as evidenced by the wheel ruts at the site. The services were centrally located along the length of the site and all worked as expected, although wi-fi was painfully slow. There is a pool, laundry and other amenities we didn't use because we only stayed overnight. The bathrooms are dated but clean and we used our on-board shower, not the CG's. This is a good CG for 2 - 3 nights max but I'm not sure what else there is to see and do in the area. When passing along we would stop here again. We camped at Indian Head Campground (formerly Indian Head KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Gas station close to the campground sold gas and diesel. Separate diesel pump that allows big rig to come and go by driving around the back of the gas station building.

Coyote Creek Golf & RV Resort, Sundre, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We have been to Coyote Creek several times throughout the spring, summer and now fall. The current daily fee remains $45 Cdn. For this you have a large (75'x25') level, gravel pad with 20, 30 & 50 amp power that has always remained steady, even when the park was full. Water and sewer are also provided at each of the 40 rental sites and again have always been consistently good. The shower house is clean and well supplied with paper daily. The showers have a good flow of hot water and do not require additional payment. The laundry has two washers ($2) and dryers ($?). There is a book/games exchange, bottle and can recycling. Wi-Fi works well but can get a little slow when the park is full. No cable and only 3 OTA stations but pretty open for satellite reception. Wood for fires can be purchased or you can bring your own. Even when full, this park was very quiet. There is no childrens play park immediately nearby although I think there is one at the seasonal section of sites. No dog walk but plenty of places nearby. The staff are always friendly. There is an advertised on-site wash available by phoning a mobile wash company. Equally, a local RV dealer has a mobile repair service available 7 days per week June, July & August. If there is one site I would not select that would be # 40 - purely for the fact it is alongside the shower house. Other than that, all sites are very good. 2-7, 8 - 15 back on to trees. 36 - 40 back on to the golf course and 16 - 25 back up to the season sites, separated by a tall, white fence. 26 - 35 are pull-through. Dumpster adjacent to the showers Ice and ice-cream sold in the office but nothing else. There is decent shopping in town, only ten minutes drive away. We will continue to visit Coyote Creek as our weekend away venue each season. We camped at Coyote Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
