So very mixed feelings on this place. On the one hand the park is gorgeous. Lovely beaches, pretty lake, tons of hiking trails. On the other hand the sites are mostly terrible. Many are small, very (very) unlevel, several butt up right against one another. Interior roads are also treed and very tight. We had to walk our 40-footer through the lower loop to get into our site, squeezing through trees and turns...and in the end we probably had one of only a handful of sites large and level enough to take us. The rest are really much better suited to tenters or small trailers. Lastly it's super-crowded and you hear jet planes from the nearby base shooting over the area all day long. We enjoyed hiking the area, but won't camp here again due to the poor site quality. 4 bars of Verizon 4G LTE in camp.

Really nice County Park on the bluff overlooking Dungeness Spit. Sites are mostly heavily treed (a select few are sunny), and mostly nicely spacious (a few exceptions) but with good separation and privacy all-around. Road in Loop 1 (non-reservation) is tighter than Loop 2 (mostly reservation), but both are do-able by big rigs. We camped here in 40-foot MH. Views from the bluff trail are outstanding and you can walk directly to the Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse. Easy access to everything in Sequim. No hookups. 2 bars Verizon 4G LTE. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the dry-camping are which was nice and relaxed. It's basically a big field with many places to park and only a short walk from the beach (right over the dune). Several "sites" have picnic table and fire pit, but you can park anywhere you wish. Road is bumpy and parts of the field are soft so big rigs need to scope out ahead and use pads under their jacks. The park does not take reservations, but I do recommend calling ahead to ask if there are any big conferences or meetings happening during your stay. They had a big conference where the entire place was completely booked out right before we came. We knew this since we checked beforehand, but others didn't and told us they'd been turned away. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would certainly come back.

What a gorgeous location this is! Miles of beach, nature trail, sunsets....all steps from your campsite. The park is older, heavily treed. Beach-facing sites are more open/sunny and several have direct water views. Sites are well-spaced, but small and uneven. We camped here in a 40-foot MH, which was not easy, but do-able if you are careful and book well ahead to snag one of only 9 sites rated over 40-foot in length. However be prepared to brush trees and do some back/forth to get into your site. In general this campground is much better-suited for smaller rigs. Interestingly enough we got 2 bars of 4G LTE on our Verizon MiFi and also had good reception on our Straight Talk (Verizon-based) phone so look like towers have been upgraded in this area. Loved this area. Would definitely come back!

What a fabulous surprise this place was! Large (very long & spacious) pull-through sites with water-facing views at the front. Two sewer dumps (one on each side) allowing both Class A & 5th wheels to park facing the view. The entire campground is impeccably clean & well-kept. First beach is literally steps from your RV. Full strength Verizon LTE. Overall can't think of a single thing to "ding". Not sure what happened with the folks who rated this place poorly last year, but perhaps it's changed management? We loved this spot and would most definitely stay again!!

This is probably the nicest RV park in Westport, but it's still quite tight. When not full it's a relaxing spot with grassy sites and a big, green area in the back near the tents (great for doggie), but when full you can almost hand your morning coffee to your neighbor. Good, clean restrooms, laundry, and friendly hosts. Wi-Fi was OK (mostly good, but does get overloaded with campers). Lots of mosquitoes in the tenting area, but that's just the season. Easy drive to the marina. Lots of good sightseeing in the area.

Nice park, manicured sites and great location walking distance to the Air Museum. The only reason it didn't get a 10/10 from me was because of restrictive dog rules. If you have more than one dog the *combined* weight of both must be under 50 lbs. Also the park prohibits "attack" breeds which is pretty standard, but this includes Blue Heelers...the first time I've ever seen that breed lumped in that category. I haven't seen these rules mentioned in other reviews and thought it important to point out for dog owners. Otherwise no complaints at all. It's a lovely park. Very busy turnover so book ahead if you plan to stay here. Our rate reflects Good Sam's 10% discount.

This is a pretty, dispersed camping location. Several sites of various sizes around either the paved road or dirt roads. Be very careful of soft sand down by the shoreline. Although this is listed almost everywhere on the Internet as a free campground there is actually an official fee of $4/night ($22/week) to stay here (50% off with senior pass). No indication (at all) of this at 20-Mile, but if you drive back to Sportsman's Beach you'll see the pay station & fee info listed there. Good Verizon signal & very pretty lake views. On site trash & pit toilet. Some highway noise from 95 depending on where you park.

Tamarack is the crumbled remains of an old campground. It has ~20 semi-paved sites of various sizes (and levelness) both back-in and pull-throughs. Most would be suitable for 30', but a a few can fit big rigs (we camped in 40'). There is a clean on-site pit toilet and trash, but no dump or water. Most sites list this campground as free, but it is in fact a pay site. There is no pay info or pay station at the Tamarack proper, but if you drive to Sportsman's Beach you will see a self-pay and fee info that clearly indicates Tamarack (and 20-mile) cost $4/night or $22/week. The area does accept Senior Pass for 50% off. There is honestly no way to know this without driving to Sportsman's and reading the sign there. Great views of the lake, but you are close to Hwy 95 so you will have road noise. You can also camp closer to the shoreline, but be aware the ground gets VERY soft very fast. Excellent Verizon signal.

Well this is just a gorgeous spot. Remote, natural, lots of wildlife, birds, hiking trails, water/beach. Excellent visitor center, historic ranch and herds of free-roaming bison. Sites are huge (enormous), paved, flat with gorgeous views of the beach/water and nice paved "sitting areas" with picnic table, shelter and fire-pit. Only big ding? The gnats!!! We were here in late-April and the gnats had just hatched. They are terrible and last until temps top 90. LOVE this spot, but ask about the gnat-situation before you come!! Sites are $10, but there is a $3 one-time fee to enter the island.

Another lovely OR State Park. Nice paved sites (Electric/water only) with decent separation & privacy. Many sites big enough for big rigs. Right next to very nice lake with large grassy day-use area, swim area and hiking trail (around the lake). Short drive to Umpqua Lighthouse/Winchester and hiking on the dunes (the fabulous John Dellenback trail is only ~1 mile down 101). Only real ding is some road noise on West side of park.

Our rate reflects monthly winter rate. I would sum this up as a so-so RV park in an AWESOME location. Yes, it's pretty much a parking lot and yes there's not a lot of amenities, but the location is perfect. You've got space to walk around De Anza Cove, access to the beach, direct walking access to Mission Bay Park and Mission Bay Golf Course and you're close to all of San Diego. If you've got a doggie there are some Bay restrictions (you can walk in Mission Bay and the beach after 4PM (in winter) or before 9AM), but you're only 5 mins drive from all-day off-leash pooch heaven Fiesta Island plus maybe 10 mins from off-leash Ocean Beach. There's no other RV park in San Diego that I know where you can get that close to a dog-friendly beach. Sites are asphalt but big enough for any size rig. I'm not clear I'd be happy paying the full $$ rate and I definitely wouldn't bother paying the premium for a bay or beach view, but if you come mid-week, stay in the regular sites and use Passport America or take the monthly rate this place is a great all-round deal.

Really loved this campground. As others have said the road getting up here (Hwy 35) can be windy, narrow and bumpy but the campground itself is very spacious and big-rig friendly (we're 40-foot and had plenty of room to spare). There are actually 2 campgrounds within 1 mile of each other around Lake Roberts: the lower one is called Upper End and is on level w/ the lake, but no views of it. The upper one is Mesa and is overlooking the lake (and some sites have views of the lake). Sites are large, flat paved with lots of space and separation, picnic table, grill and fire-pit. There's a selection of electric and non-hookup. No showers, but flush toilets are on-site. DUMP station available at Mesa Campground. Lots of nearby hiking and a good base to explore Gila Forest and the Cliff Dwellings. It's almost totally empty during the week, but fills up on the week-end. Overall we loved the place and would definitely come back. (NOTE: NO Verizon coverage here, nor further up at Gila Cliff Dwellings)

Have to admit we loved this park. Yes, the bathrooms are a little outdated and yes the roads are tight, but oh man. The beach was just gorgeous!! The water-pressure and temp was good (in the showers) and by taking our time we were fine getting our 40-footer around the roads (the roads are definitely not for the faint of heart if you have a big-rig however). Sites are decent although they can vary a bit in how firm they are (we bought planks w/ us to put under the motorhome wheels and make sure we didn't sink any). The beach is sublime and so very peaceful and the very reason we'd come back and stay. Also, extremely dog-friendly area (included on the beach).

When we arrived at this campground we immediately decided to stay longer than planned. Hillman Ferry is one of the most developed National Forest campground I’ve ever seen. The sites are nice, level, large hard gravel pads and there’s a complete selection from full hook-up to primitive, heavily wooded to fully open lake-view. By far the prettiest (in our opinion) sites are the water-front ones in Section C1 and C2, although all the sites are decent. A portion of the sites are auctioned off for the season each year (and occupied by long-term campers) but the prime sites are kept open and reservable. The area is fairly quiet during the week, but does tend to fill-up on the weekend so book ahead if you want a lake view. We parked here in a 40-footer and had no problem navigating the roads or sites along the C loops. We spent some lovely days here watching the sunset over the lake, hiking and playing in the water with our doggie.
