Twin Lakes Resort, La Pine, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This was the first time we stayed at this park. It was a pleasant experience set in pines by the Deschutes Channel. There's even a decent aroma of pines. Sites are nearby but not on top of each other. They are spacious. Some even have a substantial buffer of trees between them. Everyone at the resort was friendly. The sites on the water side get a partial view through trees. The showers (we did not use) are $2 for 5 minutes. The bathrooms are rustic and rusty but clean and functional. The loop and sites are dirt. It is dusty in the summer. The RV sites are by reservation only. When you arrive, park in your site then walk across the road to the resort store to check in. The resort is across the road in an easy walk. There you have a store, restaurant, boat rentals, and a 1-mile trail that goes around South Twin Lake. We camped at Twin Lakes Resort in a Motorhome.

Their restaurant has cold and hot sandwiches and some dinner options. They have a large selection of beer and wine. There is a view of South Twin Lake from either inside or on the patio. The patio does allow dogs. We made a reservation for one night at the patio.

Kalaloch Campground (NPS Campground), Olympic National Park, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

This is a non-hookup, forested campground between US-101 and the Ocean. It is right on US-101. You will get some of the traffic noise. Some sights are on the ocean on a bluff above the beach. The views from some sites are spectacular. Many sites are short. Most sites are incredibly uneven. We made reservations for site #D33. It slanted sharply down from front to back. The view was outstanding. Many sites are well spaced. Others are a little closer to each other. You access the beach from the D loop, from the center parking area, and from the A loop. There's the beach to walk on. There is also a small trail that leads to Kalaloch Lodge where there is a restaurant and convenience store. You will be walking on the side of the road for part of this walk. It's about half a mile. Dogs are fine on the beach and the trail to the lodge. The reservation window is about mid June to late September. Loops E and F remain on a first come availability even during this time. D33 had a perfect view but is too slanted for us to consider again. D31 is a pull through with a fantastic view. You will be right on the loop road and will need to level a bit on the passenger side. D24 is by itself right on the ocean. It slants a bit but is a top contender. Other view sites we liked: A13, A16, A25, A27, D36. A couple non-view sites we liked are B12 and B19. We camped at Kalaloch Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Fort Worden State Park (Beach campground), Port Townsend, Washington

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

This is a fantastic campground and fort grounds. We'll want to make this a regular place to visit. Our rate does not include a one time $8 reservation fee or one time $5 non-resident fee. You will want to make reservations. They are not set up for you to find an empty site and pay then. This campground is near the beach/water. You check in at building 210 (Commons) in the middle of the fort grounds. There is RV parking there. After you check in then you drive to the campground. Directional signs are limited. It will be best if you go to their web site and print maps before you arrive so you are familiar with the layout. From site #9 where we stayed you can see the water. Most don't have any water view. You'll only be a few minutes walk to it. You'll see the Port Townsend to Whidbey Island ferry, the Victoria Clipper, cruise ships, and cargo ships. Sites are level, spacious, and laid out well. Though many are visually open to each other. You can walk along the beach. You can walk out to the lighthouse but can't go inside. There are many trails throughout the battery remains of the fort. This fort has many existing buildings that have restaurants, museums, and even accommodations. We enjoyed site #9. Site #18 is private. The pull out sites on the outer perimeter from 34 through 46 will offer privacy. We camped at Fort Worden State Park (Beach campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is plenty to see all within walking distance. There is a marine science center, coast artillery museum, and commanding officer's quarters museum. There are kayak rentals (weekends). Next to the campground is a convenience store with a basic restaurant for fish and chips, hamburgers, and hot dogs. In the fort grounds there is a restaurant (Reveille) that serves 3 meals and another restaurant (Taps at the Guardhouse) that opens after lunch and into the evening.

Peach Beach Campark (Sunset Orchards), Goldendale, Washington

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

On a Sunday in late May we tried to get into the next door State Park without reservations. Their RV sites were all full. So we went to Peach Beach Campark right next door. They had open spaces including some W&E spots on the water. Sites are close but expected for a commercial park. It's still a nice place. The loop and sites are gravel. There's some grass between sites. There are plenty of large shade trees. The W&E sites on the water face a small lagoon then the Columbia river. Views of Oregon are worth staying in these sites. The host was friendly and helped us determine which ones were open. They do not have an office. When you drive down their main entry way you'll be driving down the middle of where they have two dump stations on either side. At the end is a pay station with additional information about sites reserved for that day. On the west side of the park is a small gate you can use to walk into the day use area of the state park. We camped at Peach Beach Campark (Sunset Orchards) in a Motorhome.

The Stonehenge replica is worth a vist. They have a large open parking lot. If you enjoy wineries, the Maryhill Winery is the most enjoyable wineries we've been to in years. They are dog friendly including inside.

Unity Lake State Recreation Site, Unity, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed this immensely scenic park right on the lake. If we could add anything to the experience, it would be having more trails than the one nature trail to the day use area. In late May before Memorial Day weekend, there were plenty of spaces to choose from. This area is high desert. The day area and much of the campground area has trees and grass (watered heavily). The trees in the day use area are big. The trees in the campground (especially B loop) were smaller. The A loop sites are close together. The ones right on the lake (11 through 16) are very close. These six sites are separated by gravel instead of grass. The B loop sites are more widely spaced. We stayed in site 28 in the B loop. It's our favorite site because the patio area is partially secluded. We had a lake view to the rear, the hookup side and from the table. The passenger side straight out looks to desert landscaping and a partially hidden open pit. We camped at Unity Lake State Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

Ukiah-Dale State Park, Ukiah, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pleasant park on Camas Creek. It's a long, narrow park between US-395 and the creek. This is a primitive park so there are no hookups. The loop and sites are all paved. Site 4 were we stayed was under 30' but nice. The patio area was private, and it's right on the creek. There are several sites that are much longer. It's in a mature forest fairly open at the surface. This is right on US-395 so there is some noise, but it did not bother us. There are no trails. This is one state park that does not allow payment with a credit card. It has to be either cash or a check. Generator hours are 8am - 6pm. We camped at Ukiah-Dale State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Selmac - Josephine County Park, Selma, Oregon

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

There are several loops around different parts of the lake that are all part of the Josephine County park system. We stayed at the Osprey loop. We arrived without a reservation on a weekend in late April. There were plenty of spaces. Osprey and Mallard are the two loops that have hookups. Osprey is on the west side of the lake in a mature evergreen forest wide open at the ground level. The loop is paved. The sites are dirt (forest surface). There is plenty of space between most of the sites. The lake is a 5 minute walk. You will get a glimpse of it through the trees. Sites 17, 18, and 19 are closest to the lake.

Wild turkeys were walking around the campground and calling out. It's a nice place to be out in the woods. The Mallard loop is around the SE shore of the lake. We could not find it. We either missed a secondary turn off sign, or it wasn't signed. It looks like there are trails closer to the Mallard loop. We camped at Lake Selmac - Josephine County Park in a Motorhome.

Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park, Florence, Oregon

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

This was an enjoyable state park. It's in a deep shade evergreen forest next to dunes. We arrived without reservations. There were hookup sites available in April in the middle of the week. Loops E, F, G were closed. Loop H was full of ATV people. The ATV activity was not obtrusive when we were there. Our site was narrow on the patio side. If we wanted to put out the awning, we wouldn't have been able to. On the patio side we were close to the next site. There was thick vegetation for privacy. The table and fire ring were actually on the hookup side. It was a large area offering privacy. Loops and sites are paved. There are short trails to the dunes. It's unclear if you could walk to the ocean two miles away. Without defined trails, we did not attempt it. There is a pleasant trail that goes through woods part way around the lake to the day use area. We would stay in site 256 again. These sites looked good as well: 199, 236, 259, 270, 320. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Driftwood RV Park, Brookings, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

As commercial parks go this is a decent place for a couple of nights. We would have stayed at the state park. They were under construction, and we decided to skip them this trip. We stayed in late April in the middle of the week. There were not many people staying. We had a section all to ourselves. Sites are extremely close. They are really on top of each other. If they were full, it wouldn't be as enjoyable. The whole park is on a slant from entrance to the back of the park. Our site was level. The loop is paved. The sites are gravel. There are long term residents at this park. Their sites were clean (immaculate really). Restaurants including an ice cream shop are within walking distance. The public beachfront area is only a 5 minute walk away. The check in person was friendly. They are putting in a small store for basic supplies. It is probably open now. We camped at Driftwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bullards Beach State Park, Bandon, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This is an outstanding state park. We arrived in April without reservations. They had plenty of space. The overall look of the park reminds me of a city park with tall evergreens and smaller shrubs neatly trimmed. There are several trails including two that lead to the beach. The trail from the B loop to the beach had some water obstacles we had to get around. The lighthouse is 3 miles away, and we drove to that. The A loop has tall evergreens (not deep shade inducing) and shrubs between many sites for privacy. The B loop is similar to A but doesn't offer as much privacy. The C loop also has tall trees, but is open at the ground level. C doesn't offer visual privacy, but it is a scenic loop. Our favorite sites are: A20, A32, A36, A40, A42, A43, A47, A48. We camped at Bullards Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Devil's Lake State Park, Lincoln City, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We didn't find this state park appealing. There are no trails. It might be of interest to people who do water activities. In April we couldn't even walk to the lake because the path was flooded. Many sites were flooded and close to each other. We came without reservations to stay 1 night. We picked one in loop A. The restroom building in this loop was closed. Both the entry and exit for the loop were flooded. It was fine driving in and out, but not for walking through. The following hookup sites look decent for space and privacy: A4, A6, A14, A20, B16, B18, B30. We camped at Devil's Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Furnace Creek (NPS Campground), Death Valley National Park, California

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first time in Death Valley National Park. We can't wait to visit again. We enjoyed this NPS campground. Trees and mountains make it scenic. Furnace Creek is the populated part of the park and a good place to make your home base. The other RV options (Sunset-NPS, Texas Springs-NPS, Fiddler's-private) for Furnace Creek did not look appealing to us. They looked like parking lots but reviews of those indicate some people like them. We made reservations 6 months ahead for February. The campground full signs were out when we arrived. We stayed in non-hookup site #60. All hookup sites were full even as the reservation window opened. Loops and sites are paved. There are 18 full hookup sites. Half of these are pull through sites and half are back in sites. They are long, angled, and big rig friendly. They are out in the open without any trees. The non-hookup sites range from 24' to 69'. Some are out in the open without trees. Others have trees and shrubs around them. The trees aren't over the top shade trees but can block some of the sun and add to the scenery. The shorter sites are at a right angle to the loop road. The longer sites are angled. Water is available throughout the campground in 3-faucet large trough sinks. Dumpsters and recycling stations (everything) are scattered throughout the campground. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Do go to the visitor center. It's right next to the campground. It's attractive and has some worthwhile merchandise and exhibits. We didn't do it this trip but there are a couple of eating options in Furnace Creek just a little farther beyond the visitor center: Ranch Date Grove Diner, 19th Hole Bar and Grill. Gas and diesel are available for $4 and $5.

Valley of the Rogue State Park, Gold Hill, Oregon

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This is a scenic park with big trees and grass. It's very convenient to I-5. In fact, there's a nice rest stop here. It's also along the Rogue River. We stayed one night in February while traveling north on I-5. Loops and sites are paved. They're reasonably well spaced, but you will see your neighbors. We stayed in the D loop. D12 going up to D22 are on the river side. This is the bottom half of the loop. Some of these will give you a river view. D22 where we stayed didn't have an actual view of the river. We'd stay in D22 again or D24. The upper part of the loop is closer to I-5. The E loop is a circle within the bigger D loop. It's hard to say what the actual I-5 noise would be like in nicer weather. We didn't do it this trip but want to come back in the summer and check out their trails. There's a soft surface river trail and a paved segment of the Rogue River Greenway trail. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Scottsdale, Arizona

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

This park north of Fountain Hills is our favorite Maricopa County park. If you want the feeling of being in the wide open desert but with hookup (W & E) sites, this is the park to go to. There is generous spacing between sites like we've never seen at any other place. We reserved 6 months out for February. It was full during our stay. Loops are paved. Sites are gravel and wide. In #61 the picnic area was behind and had a concrete table, pedestal grill, and fire ring/grill combo. There are many trails at this park easily accessible from the campground. The visitor center is small but has some interesting things for sale. There are ranger programs to attend. There is one dumpster and recycling bin (aluminum cans only) per loop plus one by the dump station. Our top picks for sites are: 6, 46, 48, 50, 61, 69, 70 (view of dumpster). We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Pleasant Regional Park, Morristown, Arizona

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

We've been to 5 of the Maricopa County parks. They are all scenic, clean, and well-managed. This one is no exception. It's desert around a lake. The loops are paved with gravel sites sitting on top of the hills around the lake. We reserved only a couple weeks out for early February and got one of the last two hookup (W & E) sites. Sites can be close but are well laid out. #157 in the Desert Tortoise Campground had the picnic area (concrete table with Ramada) to the rear. From our picnic area we could see a partial view of the lake. The site was tiered on a hill with #158 below us and #156 up the hill from us. It was about a 10 minute walk down the road to the wild burro trail. Driveways to some sites are steep or curve after entering. These are noted on their web site in the site details. This park has 3 types of camping: W & E sites, non-hookup sites, disbursed shore camping. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.
