Haystack Reservoir Campground (East Shore) USFS, Culver, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $7.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed during the eclipse and it was very busy! The hosts we're excellent and worked hard not only to get as many campers into the campground but keep it clean and orderly. The lake is lovely to look at but was a quite green with algae and we worried for our dog. The campground is on a hill so some of the sites are not level but sites 14, 17, 18 and 22 were quite level and plenty long enough for our 40' MH and car. The only water is in a pull through area and easy for big rigs to get into. The bathrooms are vualts and are kept clean and we'll supplied but still smell like vualts. We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back. We camped at Haystack Reservoir Campground (East Shore) USFS in a Motorhome.

Sportsman's Club Campground, Joshua Tree, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Very close to Joshua Tree NP so if you are too big or the park is full it is a good place to try. Only 30 amp sites so double AC is out if it gets hot, and it can get HOT in the summer. Weekly rate is $30 per night. Restrooms were old but clean. Almost no antenna reception. Good Verizon. WIFI was OK. All sand. No tables but a few portable firepits avaiable.Finding someone to check you in is a problem so you should call first. It is mostly for group camping but they do take drive-ins. We camped at Sportsman's Club Campground in a Motorhome.

Villanueva State Park, Villanueva, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Previous reviews are right about this CG being a lovely little spot for peace and quiet with the only sound is the Pecos River running though it. The restroom were clean and well taken care of. The roads in the park are paved but the sites are not. This CG is on their reservation system and I would recommend reserving and paying the extra fee because in the off season there is no one around to take care of the on site system and all the electric sites, whether reserved or not say they are reserved, so all that you can camp at are the non electric site, and there is no cell service to call anyone either. We came in from Hwy 40 and "what a ride" for the last few miles, down a narrow switchback cliff and then back up thru the little town with narrow sharp turns. I would recommend you come in from the north to avoid the cliff, but it is still a narrow and windy road. The dump station was easy to get into but make sure you are disconnected because the turnaround at the end in very tight. The upper loop which was closed when we were there but it is on such a steep road going up and down 1 way that I would not want to take our big rig up there, but the sites, once you get there are big and fairly level with a spectacular view of the valley. Make sure you bring all the supplies you need because the closest town is an hour and half on those windy roads and hwy 25 all the way to Santa Fe. We camped at Villanueva State Park in a Motorhome.

Fall Creek Falls State Park, Spencer, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Very highly used park. The roads to the park from the north is very narrow and windy as are the interior roads but if you come in from Hwy 111 (which is the way we went out) it is a lot easier. What ever you do do not try to enter from Pikeville because of a very steep switchback road. The sites are in very tight loops and most are not level with lots of trees and not very accommodating for large rigs like our 40' MH. The restrooms were very clean and modern. Cell service was good and we were able to get a few "over the air" tv stations. They have two dump stations. One was not accessible at all by rigs our size and the other one was only one way and there was no easy turn around. There was a NO BURN in effect while we were there and multiple forest fires in the area. The closest grocery store (except for gas station) was a good 30 miles on very windy roads. It is a lovely park but knowing how hard it is to access I don't know if we would come back. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Greenbelt Park, Greenbelt, Maryland

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

This is of course a NP campground. It is a little bit of heaven in a very large city. Like most NP campgrounds it is in need of a lot of repairs and updates, but if it were not a NP it probably won't even be here. I'm sure the property values in the area would make such a large section of land out of the range of most RV parks. In fact the only other RV park in the area charges $70 a night and that would have been way over our heads to stay at. There are trees everywhere and except for the faint noise of the busy highways on all sides you would think you were way out in the country. Those busy highways are what you have to take to get here but with patience and careful driving it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The roads inside the CG are a little rough and in need of repair. The sites could be a little larger and a little more level but we found one that would fit our 40' MH. There were picnic tables at every site but the fire rings were old and falling apart if they were even there at all. You are only 1 1/2 miles from the train station that takes you to downtown DC but we drove our car and after finding a hens teeth parking space we spent a wonderful day walking the DC Mall area. There were very few people the so it was easy to use the one shower in our loop but it would be difficult when it is busy. Most sites are back in but there are a few pull-through. The reservation system is fairly accurate in describing the size and levelness so if it says slightly unlevel you should believe them. Water was available close by and there is a dump station. The small visitors center was staffed by very helpful Park Service and volunteer people who directed us on ways to get around the city. Of course being in the city the cell and internet signal were very good. I would highly recommend this great CG for anyone with a desire to visit the Capital of the US. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Top-A-Rise Campground, Falconer, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

The new owners are now in their 3rd summer. The intent is to get as many perm people as possible and they are succeeding. Everything is nice and neat and even their WIFI is OK. The sites are grass and with a large rig it is sometimes hard to keep from sinking but we did OK. The shower house is clean as are the restrooms in the upper half but they are nothing but an outhouse that has had plumbing put in them. No sinks just 2 stalls. The owners are very nice but some of the perms seem to have taken charge of the CG and yell at you if you go over the 5 MH speed limit by even a mile per hr. You certainly don't get much for your money here especially with no sewer hook-up but that seems common in the east. The dump station is indeed right along the road and you block traffic when using it. It is very quiet and peaceful there though. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

Little Sand Bay Recreation Area, Bayfield, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Lovely and quiet CG run by the town but right in the middle of the Apostle Island NP. We were able to get Verizon service with our antenna. The campground is a favorite for locals so it can get busy at times. The showers were questionable but the restrooms were fair and provided by NPS although the visitor center was closed after Labor Day and we had to go over to the town of Bayfield to the wonderful visitor center which was in and old, but beautiful school. We camped at Little Sand Bay Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Fall Lake Campground USFS, Ely, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very busy NF CG. The sites are typical NF so they are mostly not level and pretty tight for our 40' MH. Lots of trees and low branches. But for all the negatives it is a wonderful place to spend some time. The CG is right on Fall Lake with more than abundant kayaking and trails. If you don't have a kayak there are hundreds for rent in town. Nice boat launch. We were amazed to get really good Verizon 4G service. The only draw back for any 14 day stay was no dump (all the way back in the town of Ely for $5) and only one water faucet for fill ups at the registration office. We would go back there in a minute. But reservations are a must during the busy season unless you are small and can fit into the few first-come-first-serve sites. We camped at Fall Lake Campground USFS in a Motorhome.

Colman City Park, Colman, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a small city park, mostly grass sites some with 30amp and one or two with 50amp. The registration office is the golf course clubhouse. Not the nicest place we have stayed but it was OK for a couple of nights and a lot less expensive than even the State Parks near Madison. Verizon signal was good. I didn't visit the restrooms but if they were anything like the dump station I wouldn't want to use them either. Not really made for big rigs like ours, mostly golfers with families who want to combine camping and golf. We camped at Colman City Park in a Motorhome.

Lazy JD RV Park, Piedmont, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We met friends there or we may not have stayed. Quite expensive for what it offered. Clean restrooms and laundry. Good Verizon service. Easy access to Mt. Rushmore. Large pull thru. Way out in the country but easy to get to. Farms all around and peaceful and quiet. Their monthly rate isn't bad but you can not make reservations and with the limited sites you take a chance of driving all the way out there and finding it full in the high season. We camped at Lazy JD RV Park in a Motorhome.

Plymouth Park COE, Plymouth, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Lovely COE CG near the Columbia but not on it. Large newly paved sites. Some 30 amp and some 5 amp. Good Verizon signal. Very friendly hosts. Very clean. One of the best COE we have stayed in. Not a lot of site and quite busy so reservations during the busy season would be advised. As with all Fed CG the need for tree trimming is apparent. And as most COE CGs the dump station was large and easily accessed. We camped at Plymouth Park COE in a Motorhome.

County Line Park, Cathlamet, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Quaint small fishing CG. Very tight! Just a paved parking lot. Hardly enough room to put slides out and had to back over the bumper log. No table, no place to put one! But the manager and residents (local fisherman) were very friendly and helpful. The view of the Columbia River and the barges that went by was spectacular! Everything was clean and neat. The only water was a faucet way over by the restroom at the end of the CG and the locals said not to drink from it but we did and didn't think it was bad. The dump was at an awkward position in a loop around the restrooms that was a little tight for our big rig. Phone and Verizon MIFI had a decent signal. We camped at County Line Park in a Motorhome.

What a little gem! Sites are gravel and well spaced and level. Some looked like they hadn't been used for a long time. This is a bear bones campground but if you are just looking for a cheap place to camp for a while it is perfect. Good Verizon cell service. There are restroom near the gate to the airport where you pay for your site and 2 water faucets in the campground. We camped at Port of Tillamook RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sandbeach Campground (USFS), Cloverdale, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

What a great park. Big rig friendly. Mostly back in but lots of room with a parking spot for cars alongside. Trees, but trimmed back. Paved sites with table and fire ring. The hosts were exceptional! Used to have a dump station, but it is closed permanently. The only drawback was the noise. This is an ATV friendly CG and believe me there are a lot of ATVs and they are very noisy. There are 2 first-come-first serve Forest Service staging area campgrounds across the street and it is even noisier over there because they are in the sand dune areas. There are rules for decibel loudness and hours of ATV operations but very few FS employees to enforce them so campers just go wild until all hours of the night. The hosts have no authority to make people obey the rules. Fireworks are prohibited but that rule isn't enforced either. If you have an RV and ATV it is the place for you! But if you are looking for a quiet camping experience forget it. There is no cell phone service and no internet. The closest place to dump is at Campers Cove 8 miles away for $12 or in Pacific City. We camped at Sandbeach Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

Panther Flat, Gasquet, California

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a FS campground and can be reserved but has some walk-in sites. It is located near the town of Gasquet, CA and is the largest of the 3 FS campgrounds in that location along 199. The restrooms and showers were clean. The showers were pay 6 min. for $1. The first loop was derivable with our 40' MH but the last loop was very tight with low overhanging branches. The sites were spaces nicely but lots of branches sticking into it, and the last loop was not very level. Had to tie the limbs back to get the slides out. With antenna and amplifier we were able to sometimes get a Verizon signal for MIFI but not the phone and not reliably. After a week there we were ready to get out to a sunnier place. We camped at Panther Flat in a Motorhome.
