Cape Blanco State Park, Port Orford, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an incredible park that feels quiet and secluded even when full or close to being full. This is one of the few state parks on the coast that does not take reservations. We arrived at 2pm on a Monday in the middle of August. They had some sites. When we left on Wednesday for touring we noticed the campground full sign was out. It was not out when we left on Friday. The setting is wooded. Some of the western sites might get a glimpse of the ocean through the pines. There is plenty of space between sites. Most have thick vegetation between them. There are many hiking opportunities: to the lighthouse, to the Sixes river, to a historic house, and to the beach. The beach access is on a steep one way road not suitable for RVs. The shower building has individual tiled stalls with a shower area and a drying area. You had to push a button for several minutes of water. Water was lukewarm. The drying area had a small round wooden stool which you can either use to sit on or to set your items on but not both. This park does not have a functioning dump station. It does not look like it will for the foreseeable future. You can use the other state park dump stations. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, Winchester Bay, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice little park in a heavily wooded area. It's about a quarter mile off US-101. There's an upper set of sites on either side of the loop road. Except for one, they were full hookups. Further down the hill is a bigger loop with a mixture of yurts, full hookup (1), W&E, and non-hookup sites. The length of sites range from 38' to 56'. These sites were decent for privacy even though this park has close sites: 2, 5, 7, 9, 40, 45, 48, 54. #2 where we stayed was across from the registration both. We arrived without reservations on a Sunday at 2pm in the middle of August. They had several sites available but were full by 5pm. The registration person/host was especially friendly and came out to greet us when we stopped at the registration area. She told us exactly what sites were available. There is an easy trail around Lake Marie. It's scenic and only a mile walk. You can either walk up or drive up a quarter mile to the lighthouse. There you get a view of the ocean and can visit the museum and gift shop. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

South Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This isn't our top Oregon coast state park, but it's fairly high on our list. It's a big park set a quarter mile or so back from the beach. It's in a setting of shore pines. They are attractive trees but don't offer visual privacy at ground level. If you enjoy privacy G15 where we stayed was nice. G14, A37, C11, E22, and G12 are some other nice ones. In summer every day felt like a weekend. It's crowded with people walking and biking through the loop roads. The trails felt much less crowded. There are 3 main trails to the beach. They start out paved. You will have to walk through some dry sand and over dunes to reach the beach. A walk to the south jetty and to the bridge/marina area is all paved which took us about 45 minutes. From this park you will hear a foghorn (we like). Garbage/recycling is all the way toward the front of the loops. Pet waste drop offs are throughout the loops at at trail entrances. We camped at South Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park, Buxton, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a newer park in a wooded area (mostly conifers) on a hill. It's scenic and not too far NW of the Portland, Oregon, metro area. There are plenty of trails to hike on. We stayed in the Dairy Creek Camp West loop. There are tall trees behind the sites. These are our favorites providing privacy: 2, 4, 12, 14, and 17. Sites in the 35 to 53 row are more open to each other though they are spaced well. They have some smaller trees and shrubs that in time will help separate the sites. These 5 sites we wouldn't recommend: 7, 9, 31, 32, 54. In general all the sites seemed level. The front part is asphalt. The rear part of the sites and picnic areas are gravel. We enjoyed this park and will be back. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Silver Falls State Park, Sublimity, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice state park east of Salem, Oregon. There are plenty of big conifers, water falls, historic buildings, and a lot of space to explore. The B loop is where most of the hookup sites are. The western side of this loop has the taller trees. The eastern side of loop B your site will be open above, many surrounded by thick shrubs for privacy. Spacing and privacy are decent in loop B. The A loop is mostly dry camping. This loop has tall conifers, but it's more open at the ground level. Sites are much closer. A72 is a nice hookup site set off by itself. B25, B37, and B39 are some good sites for privacy. Those are not the only ones. The campground was crowded in June as would be expected. Out on some of the trails it felt like we had the place to ourselves. We camped at Silver Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

The Trail of Ten Falls does not allow dogs. You can go to an overview and see South Falls. Look on the map for Old Ranch. It's a nice place to hike to. It's a meadow-like clearing in the conifers.

Cape Lookout State Park, Tillamook, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is next to the ocean, but no sites have an actual ocean view. Most of the hookup sites in the C loop are in tall trees. The spacing is adequate. You will see other sites through the trees. Most of the hookup sites in the D loop are very close to each other. The A and B loops (almost all dry) are closest to the ocean. The A and B sites south of the shower building are open and grassy with a few shrubs. North of the shower building there are taller trees. If you like privacy these dry sites have thick shrubs around them and are open above: C4, C6, C8, D38, D40, D55. Beach access is over a small dune. Then you have to walk over some rocks. The beach seems narrow, and at high tide the water covers all the sand in some places. Showers, which we didn't use, are private with a shower area and drying area with a bench. We'll visit here again. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The service road by site A52 makes for a nice stroll. It's a bit meadow like with views of the bay and one access point to climb a dune and see the ocean. The north trail has views of the ocean through trees. Consider it moderate due to incline and switchbacks. After 20 or 25 minutes you reach an extreme difficult point where you would have to climb up a steep rock incline to continue.

Beachside State Park, Waldport, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is appropriately named. It is right on the beach on a sliver of land between the ocean and US-101. Not all the sites are great but there are some wonderful spots. Avoid the dry sites closest to US-101. It seems like traffic noise would be too much for those. Some of the sites that back to other sites are very close. The campground map gives an indication. The first row closest to the ocean is nice. Due to vegetation they don't all have an ocean view. The beach is steps away. There are 4 access points to the beach from this park. We arrived the first Monday of May without reservations. Several sites in the first row were available for 1 night. We stayed in #78 that had no view, but we could hear the ocean. In the future, we'd like to reserve #63, #64, or #66 for their views. We camped at Beachside State Park in a Motorhome.

Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park, Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely park. It's on the east side of US-101 so it is not on the ocean directly. There is a half mile trail to the beach that goes under US-101. The park is thick with evergreen trees. The no reservation park was a nice change and good for an impromptu trip. We arrived on the last Thursday of April. There were plenty of spaces. Even through the weekend this early in the season some spaces remained available. There's a decent amount of space between sites. Some offer more visual privacy than others. Each shower stall has a shower area and a drying area. There is only a small round wooden stool to sit on. This is now one of our favorite Oregon coast state parks. We camped at Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Salton Sea SRA / Headquarters Camp, Mecca, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here a couple nights during the week in early February. We enjoyed this campground and the Salton Sea. We plan on visiting again and staying longer. There were plenty of open spaces. At the same fee entry point, and within walking distance, are two campgrounds: Headquarters and New Camp. We stayed at Headquarters. There is a large parking lot. On the east side of this lot are 15 pull through full hookup sites. Your front will face the sea. These sites are very close, separated by tall palm trees. They are closest to CA-111 and train tracks. The highway noise was minimal. The trains were frequent and loud. They use their horn. If you don't like train noise, you will not like this campground. There are an additional 3 dry spots at a the NW corner of the parking lot. The visitor center and restrooms (no showers) are at the south end of the lot. New Camp is close to CA-111. There are 25 parallel sites around a loop. Most are dry but a few are water and electric. These are much more spacious than the ones at Headquarters. Except for 47, 48, and 50, there are no sea views at New Camp. The showers, which require tokens, are at this campground. We camped at Salton Sea SRA / Headquarters Camp in a Motorhome.

Barstow / Calico KOA, Yermo, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

There's some highway noise from I-15 and the rates are high, but for a 1 night stay it's convenient. We'd stay here again. The loops and sites are gravel. It's an attractive park. Our site #3 had short shrubs between it and the next site. There are other sites under very tall trees. The views of mountains from the park were scenic. The showers were clean and had modern tile. The drying area was a bit narrow, and there was no bench. This is a good park to stay at if you need easy access on and off I-15. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We fell in love with this park. Earlier in the day we called and made a reservation for the night. After we arrived and noticed how nice it was, we decided to stay for 2 nights before continuing on our trip. There are orange groves around the park. There are orange trees everywhere in the park. Being on the east side of Bakersfield, the access from CA-58 was easy. Sites are level. You see your neighbors, but there is plenty of room to set out your chairs, etc. We had a pull-in water/electric site not a pull-through or back-in site. You drive in and your hookups are on the correct side. Then you back-out to leave. The restrooms/showers were modern and clean. The staff was friendly. We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

They allow you to pick oranges from the trees. Take advantage of this. In early February they were tasty. The California Fruit Depot is walking distance around the corner. We highly recommend it for dried fruit, nuts, and rich date milkshakes.

We stayed here one night on a trip heading south on I-5. The park is convenient, and we'll stay here again for another one night stay. Sites are level on the top of a hill and are close together. The restrooms and showers were fine. We made a reservation and checked in after hours. We did visit the office the next morning to pay. The office staff were very friendly.

The Lakes RV & Golf Resort, Chowchilla, California

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

The Good Sam discount basically made up for the tax, so we paid $40 instead of $44. It's one of the rare parks we've stayed at where resort is used correctly. It's a gated, landscaped, and very attractive place. When we made the reservation they did ask us how old our rig is. It's new, but they probably wouldn't have let us stay if we still had our old class B. This park is convenient to CA-99. Sites are close though there are short privacy hedges between sites. We had to level our front tires just a bit. The restrooms/showers are attractive and modern. There are 3 showers in the restroom area. They did not have a place to sit but only a towel bench. There was even a sign indicating the bench was for towels not sitting. We did not use the golf or restaurant facilities. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night because it was only 4 miles from a truck service center we needed to be at the following morning. We would not stay here again. Train horns felt like they were on top of us. We couldn't get the men's restroom unlocked. The women's restroom had water backed up in the sinks. This is a permanent park, but we didn't have any issues with that. People we encountered in the office and elsewhere were friendly. Our site was a pull-thru at an end. It worked for us for one night. We camped at Loomis RV Park in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here one night in February when we took the coastal route back to Oregon. We'd stay here again over the KOA just for the scenery. It is right off US-101 then you drive down a 1-mile winding road into a small valley. Once you reach the office, you still have to drive down just a little farther. The people at the office were exceptionally friendly. The hookups and restroom/showers were old but functional. There is one common drying area for two showers. Water was hot. The loop is paved. The sites are gravel with grass growing through. Right next to the campground was a fenced pasture where cattle were grazing. We saw wild turkeys, rabbits, and deer making for a pleasant overnight stay. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Motorhome.
