Bodega Bay RV Park, Bodega Bay, California

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second time we stayed in this park. Our site was a pull through, with gravel parking. There was a small lawn with a picnic table at each site. I needed a one inch board to level side to side. It poured rain the four days we were at this camp ground. Since the camp ground is on a sloped hill, the drainage was excellent. Even though we had over two inches of rain, none of the sites we saw flooded up due to the rock and drainage. Due to the weather, the owners opened up the club house a day early so we had a place to meet and eat on Thursday. This time the Wi-Fi worked great all four days. I would definitely return to this park. We camped at Bodega Bay RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Los Banos West / I-5 KOA , Santa Nella, California

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

I spent one night here while traveling down Highway 5. All the sites are pull through. I was able to park my 30 foot travel trailer and 20 foot truck in the site with out having to unhook my truck. The sites are dirt, bordered by grass on both sides. I needed a 1 inch board to level my trailer side to side. Each site has a picnic table. There appeared to be 10 – 15 full time residents in the park. The bathrooms, showers and club house facilities were clean. There was minimal noise from the highway. The Wi-Fi was free but I kept getting timed out on my connection. The night and morning I was there, it was extremely windy. Wind gusts rocked my trailer even though I had the tongue jack and four stabilizers down. I would stay here again if I needed a place to stop over night. We camped at Los Banos West / I-5 KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tuttle Creek Campground, Lone Pine, California

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This is a Bureau of Land Management Campground. There is no potable water. Lone Pine, the closest town, is approximately 5 ½ miles away. There were clean vault toilets through out the camp ground loops. Each site had well defined dirt parking pad, a picnic table and a fire pit. We camped in a 30 foot travel trailer. I stayed in site 72. The dirt parking area was about 60 feet long and about 14 feet wide. I need four boards to raise the down hill wheels of my trailer, six inches, so I could level my 30 foot travel trailer. Tuttle Creek was about 15 yards behind my site. There were cattle that came into the campground. The access off Horse Shoe Meadow Road is a narrow windy asphalt road with 4 speed bumps. You have to look ahead since the road is so narrow, two RV’s would be unable to pass unless one of them uses one of the pull offs along the road. The campground roads are dirt and you have to pick spots to let on coming traffic pass. The dirt roads were so soft I had to use 4X4 to stop spinning my tires when I started towing my trailer from a dead stop. The views from this park are phenomenal. The stars at night were unbelievably clear. This is great camp ground to use as a base to see other attractions in the area. We camped at Tuttle Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Acton / Los Angeles North KOA, Acton, California

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

I camped here for one night en-route up to Alabama Hills by Lone Pine. My site, space 55, was a dirt pull through site. The site was long enough that I was able to keep my truck hooked up (total length 51 feet) and still easily be off the roads to the front and rear of my site. I had to use one ½ inch board to level side to side. There was a huge, neat tree just east of my site. The site had a picnic table. AT&T cell does not work in the campground. Verizon users were able to text but not make voice calls. The free Wi-Fi worked very well. There was a creek about 10 yards from my site. The water was rushing, probably due to recent rain and snow. There was a train track 75 – 100 past the creek. Four trains came by during my stay. Trains were loud but I didn’t feel any shaking. A unique sound was that two or three times we heard lion’s roar. The office staff told us there was a game preserve called Shimbala just up the road so don’t be afraid if you hear a lion’s roar. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. I would estimate that over one half of the sites are occupied by full time residents. Unlike some campgrounds I have been in, most of the rigs were well maintained and the residents were friendly. I read about the staff in prior reviews and wasn’t sure what to expect. When I checked in, I asked the girl at the front desk if AT&T worked any where in the park. She told me no, but let me use the KOA hard line to call home and let my wife know I had arrived safely. A friend was going to meet me at the KOA, later that night. She waived the extra vehicle fee and gave me a pass to put on his car when he arrived. When I was leaving the next morning, she asked if there was anything the KOA could do to make my stay more pleasant. When I was walking around the campground, one of the KOA staff drove up, asked if he could help with anything. We talked about 10 minutes and as he left he said be sure to let the staff know if anything could be done to make my stay more enjoyable. There are not enough activities in the area to draw me back to this campground. How ever if I was passing through, I would not hesitate to stop for a night. We camped at Acton / Los Angeles North KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Durango RV Resort, Red Bluff, California

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in a 30 foot travel trailer. We stayed 3 nights and 4 days. Most of the sites were long wide, pull through concrete sites. Our site was level and approximately 75 feet long. There was well maintained grass on both sides of the concrete pad. All the interior roads were composed of asphalt and easy to travel for big rigs. The cable TV had numerous analog and digital channels. The WI-FI was excellent. The swimming pool, spa, club house and outdoor gas fire place were all exceptionally clean and first rate. There was a nice path that led down to the Sacramento River. The path provided access to hiking trails and provided nice places to walk our dog. The staff was very friendly upon check in. They gave us a cookie for our dog. They made an excellent recommendation for restaurant that could accommodate our trailer club. Every staff member we contacted was friendly and offered to provide any assistance we needed. I would definitely stay here again We camped at Durango RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Bordertown Casino RV Resort, Reno, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Our spot was a flat level concrete slab that required no leveling. There was grass and gravel on both sides of the site. There were multiple, cable TV channels available. There was free Wi-Fi and the speed of the Wi-Fi was good. There was a concrete table with benches in each site. The sites are long and relatively narrow. I was easily able to park my 30 foot trailer and my 22 foot truck in my spot. There was only one small area where my step would come down over concrete instead of on the lawn. Due to the utility stanchion, bushes and tree, I had to maneuver so I could open my 40 inch slide out. Because of a tree, I was unable to open my awning. The sprinklers came on every night and soaked the site. I was warned of this by the staff so I put my chairs away every night to keep them dry. The dog run is enclosed, and has a gravel base for the dogs to run on. The food at the Border Town Casino next door was good and reasonably priced. The RV Park supplied coupons for a free drink, $1 off a meal, a raffle ticket for a jacket and two other items. Even though the Park has a Reno address, the Park is 20 minutes from down town Reno. I would stay here again. We camped at Bordertown Casino RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Smithwoods RV Park, Felton, California

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was a long gravel site, approximately 65 feet long. I needed 2 one inch boards and 3 half inch boards to level the low side of the trailer side to side. I was unable to hook up to Wi-Fi in my site. The site had a good mix of sun and shade. I especially liked the fire pits that were made from washing machine drums. Staff was very friendly and helpful in locating local attractions. Swimming pool and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The laundry had three washers and three dryers but was only open from 1000 to 2100 hours. There are no discounts on weekends and holidays. The park has a great location to Santa Cruz, Roaring Camp Railroad, Mystery Spot, and Henry Cowell State Park. There are improvements to the park since last year but for the price charged, I expect the sites to be level and WI-Fi to work throughout the park. We camped at Smithwoods RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Chula Vista RV Resort, Chula Vista, California

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this resort for 9 days while touring the San Diego area. We were in a standard inside site. The site was a flat, level concrete slab. There was no need to level side to side. The site had water, electric, sewer, a picnic table and numerous free cable TV channels. The sites were all separated by hedges. Every two or three sites had a garbage can in front. The grounds were immaculate and there seemed to be a large force of gentleman gardening, cleaning and picking up garbage all day long. The pool, hot tub, showers, bathrooms and laundry were clean and very well maintained. A weekly schedule of activities was handed out each week. There were generally three or four activities a day. The resort also had some short comings. The place was alive with ants. I had to kill ants in my trailer. To keep the ants out, I had to spray my levelers, around my tires, my electric cord, cable cord, fresh water hose and sewer hose to slow down the ants. All around me, people were spraying or putting out Ajax to try and control the ants. I talked to two people who told me the have been going to Chula Vista RV Resort for years and that there has always been an ant problem. The other problem was the resorts Wi-Fi program. You could go to the store with your computer and receive 30 free minutes of Wi-Fi usage a day. They also sold a 7 day package for $19.99. The Wi-Fi was so slow and erratic; buying the 7 day package was definitely a waste of money. The resort has a nice store and is part of the Chula Vista Marina. There is a nice park with lawns and picnic facilities. Below the park was a nice and beach just past a rocky breakwater. There are two nice and reasonably priced restaurants at the marina. Even with the ant problem and poor Wi-Fi, I would stay at this resort again. We camped at Chula Vista RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Iron Horse RV Resort, Elko, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this park for one night and I have mixed reactions. The entrance to the park was difficult to find. The other rig I was traveling with, and I, both missed the entrance sign. The park is down an embankment and not visible from the road. The large Iron Horse RV Resort sign is on the far side of the road and confused us regarding the location of the park entrance. When we were checking into the park, there was no place to park without blocking the road into the park. The woman who checked us in, did not seem to have any information about the surrounding area. She did provide us with 20% off meal coupons for the Hilton Garden Hotel (which was just up the road) and was somehow affiliated with the campground. We had breakfast at the Garden Hotel and the food was excellent. As a guest of the RV resort, you get full access to the pool and work out room in the Garden Hotel. The pool and hot tub was so small at the Iron Horse, that if you wanted to swim, it was necessary to use the Hilton Garden. We were also given a phone number to call if we wanted to take a free shuttle to the Red Lion Hotel and Casino. There was a nice recreation room, lounge and large laundry room. The bathrooms were clean. The roads were wide and composed of asphalt. Our site was flat, level gravel with a concrete patio. Grass bordered the area around the patio. The site was long and wide. There was no picnic table on our site. When looking around the park, there were few picnic tables in sight. I would also estimate that one half of the park was occupied by either long term or permanent residents. The RV Resort was clean except that the area around the dumpsters reeked of spoiled garbage. I felt fortunate not to have a site next to the dumpster. I was only in the site for one night since I was traveling through. The resort was adequate for one night and I would not hesitate to return if I was passing through Elko, Nevada. We camped at Iron Horse RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Barstow / Calico KOA, Yermo, California

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at the park for one night. Our site was gravel and separated from the sites on both sides with an Oleander hedge. I had to use one board to level our trailer from side to side. The cable TV and free Wi-Fi worked very well. My trailer and tow rig are 50 feet long and fit in the site end to end. The rest rooms and laundry were clean. There was a game room with ping pong, fooz ball, air hockey and a pool table. The swimming pool was heavily used due to the fact it was 109 degrees when we checked in and it was still 89 degrees at 2200 hours. Even though there were constantly people in the pool, it remained reasonably clean and cool. The staff was friendly and gave good recommendations for a local place to eat. (Peggy Sue’s was a neat 1950’s style dinner.) We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

We were in a deluxe site which included free Wi-Fi, and a pull thru site. We had a flat, level, gravel site. Our site had a new plastic picnic table and a nice concrete patio. There was grass between our sites and there was lots of room for slide outs. The Wi-Fi was reasonably fast and easy to access. There was a nice, clean laundry room close to our site. It cost $2.00 to wash and $.25 for each 10 minutes to dry. It took about 40 minutes to dry a load of clothes. Every morning, there was free coffee and hot chocolate available. The park is within four easy walking blocks of most of the attractions of the town of West Yellowstone. The check in staff was very accommodating. They provided maps, coupons and advice for things to see in and around West Yellowstone. I thought the price was high, but location to Yellowstone Park and the cleanliness of the park along with the amenities made the price OK. I would definitely stay at this park again. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rocky Mountain RV Park, Gardiner, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for three nights on a premium spot on the upper level of the campground. The site was gravel with lawn on both sides. We had a fire pit and a new plastic picnic table. We stayed with another couple next to our site. There was a large tree between our sites that provided ample shade and was a great place to sit and admire the view of the surrounding mountains. The view was spectacular in all directions. The Wi-Fi connection was fast and easy to hook up to. The staff that led me to my site was great. He made backing into the site extremely easy. While we were off exploring Yellowstone, my fresh water hose burst. The staff turned the hose off and told me about the problem so I could replace the hose. There is free miniature golf at the park. We enjoyed it so much, we played two rounds. We were given discount tickets for purchases in the parks store. The prices in the store were less than the same items offered in Yellowstone or stores in the town of Gardiner. The check in staff was very helpful. I was traveling with another couple who had made the reservations and put the deposit on their credit card. The check in staff credited the entire deposit to my friend’s site and allowed me to pay for the second site with my Good Sam Discount. This has been one of the few campgrounds on this trip that have been so accommodating. I enjoyed everything about my stay in this campground and would definitely return to this place. We camped at Rocky Mountain RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch (formerly Flagg Ranch Resort), Moran, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for three nights. We had a large dirt space that needed two, two inch boards to level our 30 foot trailer side to side. The site was dirt and very large. We had a picnic table and a fire pit about 25 feet from our trailer. The sewer connection was a bit odd. The connection was about 8 inches above ground level. I had to build a ramp with wood to run my sewer hose into the drain. There was only 20 amp service but this did not cause a problem. When using water at the camp site, the pressure would sometimes drop to zero and then a few seconds later, resume full pressure again. This happened every time my wife or I were showering in our trailer. There were lots of mosquitoes but repellent took care of that problem. There was no cell service for AT&T or Verizon in the park. The campground was full, but by 2300 hours, all was quiet and we had no problems with noise. Camp fire programs were offered by the US Forest Service. People driving way too fast in the campground were a large source of blowing dirt. This campground is an excellent base to explore Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. All the pull through spots were large and roomy. These are some of the largest sites I have seen in a private camp ground. I would return to this campground if I was in the area of Yellowstone again. We camped at Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch (formerly Flagg Ranch Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

The Virginian Lodge RV Resort, Jackson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

The entrance was difficult to find since it is poorly marked. When exiting the park, you have to set up carefully to avoid striking any cars parked on the street. We were in a pull through site, but due to a tree, the electrical box, and my slide out, I was unable to park my truck in front of my 30 foot trailer. I had to park behind my trailer at an angle and attempt to keep my vehicle off the grass. Our spot was gravel and we needed one board to level the trailer side to side. Our picnic table had one bench that was split in half and was unusable as a seat. There was no free Wi-Fi at the park but there was free Wi-Fi across the street at the local library. The park was extremely windy so no one had awnings or chairs out. That being said, the location of the park was excellent. The park was a great base for exploring Grand Teton National Park and the town of Jackson. I don’t consider this park a resort. For this price, the up keep of the park and the condition of the sites should be much better. Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not consider the walk to the pool at the Virginian Hotel excessive. I would return to the park for its location, not it amenities. We camped at The Virginian Lodge RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Our space was a pull through, asphalt site with grass and a tree on each side. The asphalt was so uneven; it took two boards to level my 30 foot trailer side to side. There was a gravel parking spot in each site since the spots were not long enough to accommodate my trailer and truck. The pool and bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. I had trouble logging on to the internet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I realized that I had not been given my KOA discount when I checked in. I went back to the office and was rapidly taken care of and the problem was corrected. The staff was also very friendly and provided maps and suggestions for what to see in and around Salt Lake City. For the price, $50.00, I felt the sites should have been level, and the inter-net should work well. I liked the campground and had no concerns about the neighborhood. The staff wanted our stay to be a pleasant one. I would return if passing through Salt Lake City since the KOA is close and convenient to most of the local attractions. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Travel Trailer.
