Arrived at this park without reservation on a Thursday at 11 am. As I was pulling in, another rig was pulling out and I grabbed site 7..front row on a low bluff, with full on view of Strait of Juan de Fuca..with all the boat traffic and ambiance. While many sites are reserved well in advance, there are a dozen or so sites left for first come first served. The entire waterfront row is non-reserved. Weekends were packed. Most weekdays filled by mid-afternoon. Saw several 'locals' who know the system pull a car into an open site, put their paid tag on dash then get picked up and come a day or two later with their rig. Locking up an otherwise available spot. Many families, yet quiet at night. Park gate closes at 10 pm. 14 day max stay. A nice separation of tent sites from RV sites. A large park, with mostly open RV and wooded tent sites. Concrete pad with grass strip between sites. Picnic table and fire ring. 50 amp and water. Dump station with lots of blue boys being hauled around, Playground, Hiking, and Tide pools. In my opinion, sites are snug for big rigs, as our fiver and truck barely fit without hanging into road. Width gets friendly if your neighbor is big and you both have slides. Fire ring ended up about 3' from back corner of our rig. RV sites are set in three rows, each higher than the one in front. AT&T OK about 1/2 mile from park entrance, then bounces over to Canada tower, both voice and data. Verizon Mi-Fi internet was also on Canadian towers so all were OFF in park. Satellite TV OK from most RV sites. OTA antenna was Canadian. Heavy fog some days..fog horns sounding from passing ships..you swore they were going to hit you! Great location for day trips into National Park, Cape Flattery, Port Angeles, Sol Duc hot springs, and Hurricane Ridge. Would definitely come back.

Welcoming, friendly and accommodating hostess. Escort to site. Had pull through, no unhooking needed. FHU 50 amp. Our site (31) had a clear shot for DirectTV. Most sites are permanents/seasonals but appear kept. Freeway traffic across river melted away as the night progressed. Didn't really notice it. Would visit again if passing through.

Stopped here as it is a Passport America park. Great rate. A bit off of I-5 by several miles so no freeway noise. A warm, friendly welcome. Escort to sight. Had large pull through. Gravel. Minor front/back leveling needed. Good 50 amp, water/sewer. Tengonet internet Wi-Fi, so basically useless but 200 mb allowed per unit, per day so we didn't bother. No big deal as we use Millenicom-4 bars. Direct TV satellite from our site. ATT cell strong. Mostly year round residents here. Several apparently work various shifts as I heard vehicles coming and going throughout the night. While it did wake me up now and then. It wasn't obnoxious. Nicely kept groundsand ponds with fish. Fronts river. Tiny 6 hole, chip/putt golf course meanders inside the park. Didn't get around to using it, but could be a fun way to spend an hour. Would definitely recommend a stop here if you're running up or down I-5 and want an inexpensive and comfortable stay.

Behind the casino....one long row of mostly pull throughs on asphalt. Just an extension of the parking lot, really. 30 amp, water and sewer pipe at each site. Top of our sewer pipe was about 20" straight up out of ground..making for a creative hook up. Electric box was on it's last leg..plugs/breakers were loose...needed some screws and maintenance. We arrived on a Monday around 2 pm and there were only two sites open and the park seemed to consist of many long term residents...some were hard piped to sewer opening....some looked like they had been there a while. Surprisingly quiet after dark, even though there are workers from both the rv park and casino hotel rooms coming and going all the time. Check in is inside casino at hotel registration. Bathroom/laundry also inside building by registration. We were in a 40' fiver with 3 large slides...we needed to unhook so our truck wasn't blocking the travel lane of the parking lot in front of us. We had about 10' on each side to the next rig. Some leveling could be needed if you're big. No shade. Would be HOT in summer with only 30 amp. Hey...22 bucks, hookups, safe..then move on....fair enough. We might come back if passing through.

Saguaro RV Park is on South Side of Cactus Pete's Casino. Easy access on East side of US93. Fair price. Rows on North side of RV park do have some shade...all else is basically out in the open. Grass between sites...descent room separating sites. Sewer hook up at site says "gray water only", use dump station for 'black'..hmmm. No problem for me, but others? Thirty amp only. I couldn't find any provided Wi-Fi signal. AT&T phone strong. Verizon air card strong. Park filled by dark when we were there in mid-September...in morning saw several RVs parked overnight in main parking lot, next to semis. No highway noise to speak of. Several casinos within 1/4 mile, food and other services in Jackpot, walk to Cactus Pete's. Swimming available at hotel pool. Fine spot for overnight or maybe a bit longer. Would stop again if passing through.

Great place to stay. Senior Pass rate of $8 per night dry is a bargain...add $6 for 50 amp electric, which we did. Electric sites are spread through the park. Not all sites have electric. Potable water spigots located about every 10 sites or so...bring a LONG hose and water thief if you will need to add water. There are about 10 sites with river view, the rest are nicely tucked into the forest. Trees are trimmed for big rigs. A bit of road noise from nearby Hwy 191 during day...quiet after dark. About a 5 minute drive back into West Yellowstone. Easy day trips into Yellowstone. Bear country here. Didn't see any, but signs are everywhere re: food, trash etc. which is great. Clean, quiet, great price! A wonderful experience and I would definitely come back.

This is a large and very busy state park. Day beach plus many separate types of camp sites all within the title Bear Lake State Park. A) Willow..which is a group only camp with a mix of RVs/tents--located on the Western end of the camp park units..by the day beach. B) Birch..which is designed for RVs with pull throughs and back ins...full hook ups, canopy over table at each site, fire ring, limited shade. C) Cottonwood..which is designed for tents, but has a mixture of RVs parked in the lot and tents on the sites. No hookups. D) Big Creek, the original campground at the park, designed for RVs with full hookups, back in and pull throughs. More shade, slightly smaller sites and a bit more congested than Birch. Small group area here also. Fire rings. On the Eastern end. There also are several no hookup campsites on Eastern side of Bear Lake, also associated with the state park..about 5 miles from Rendezvous end of lake. Vault toilets. No dump here...dump at Rendezvous. Rumor is prices go up in 2014. Boat rentals/ice/firewood sales on site at day beach. The problem with this park, in my opinion (IMO), is it can be terribly overloaded during weekends and prime summer weeks. Locals by the carload pour out of the Cache Valley (Salt Lake City, etc) and load up all sites with extra tents, relatives, sunshades, RVs, boats, kids, bikes, etc and it can look like a fairgrounds instead of a campground. Controlled chaos is the rule here. Bathrooms/showers get overloaded, trash dumpsters overflow...yet the cleaning crews/staff somehow keep up with it! A beautiful location, but needs better enforcement of the stated park rules regarding number of units and people per site. We would come back if passing through, but would avoid busy July/August season and weekends.

On Conception Bay. Dry camping on the water. Huge sand/beach front area for unlimited number of RV's. Just off the main highway 8 miles South of Mulege. Many other RV beach camp spots tucked in along this bay, but the road into Santispac Beach is the best for large RV's. Dark, quiet, ocean sounds. Small restaurant nearby. Lovely stop.

Date of Stay:

If the tide is in, I guess you could call it waterfront. The rest of the time the bay becomes a mud flat. Great for birding. Some of the sites are very difficult to back a fifth wheel into due to narrow street and trees on the front corners of each space. 30 amp at our site, water and sewer on site. WiFi free. Nice pool and hot spa. Utilities in some sites are located in strange places. Guard gated. Secure, quiet. Not our favorite stop, but acceptable.

Date of Stay:

Free overnight stop. Pretty area. No marked sites, but huge area for any size and amount of rv's. We found one water spigot that flowed to top off with. Fair sand/gravel road access. No other services. Quiet.

Date of Stay:

This park is no longer open to rv'ers.

Nice location. Quiet. Ocean view from all sites. Road into park from main highway, like most RV parks in Baja is in rough shape. Dirt/Sand pot-holed, sink holes, rutted...low branches along side of road. Go slow. Once in park, plenty of room for any size rig. Half dozen or so 15 amp electric plugs located along North back in sites only. All other areas are no hook ups. Water spigots here and there. Owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome...still slow business in Baja. No sewer that I could find. Showers/toilets OK.

Date of Stay:

Welcoming park as you enter La Paz. Nightly spaces have shade, well laid out. Caravan area is in large field, newly opened, with hookups. Wi-Fi free. Busy when we were there. Wal Mart/Sam's Club a couple miles away to restock. Plenty to do in La Paz area. Easy access.

Mixed feelings on this park. You have to drive all the way through town to get to it..making for slow going. We stayed here twice..once going down then coming back. Enjoyed our second visit more for some reason. 30 amp, water and sewer. Sites are packed in with residences on one side (which are on the water) and storage units on the other. Makes it very claustrophobic. Lots of neighborhood dogs and roosters made it quite noisy all the time. Free Wi-Fi. Good Telcell. Nice pool and common areas. Lots of services in Loreto.

Date of Stay:

Dry camping at it's best. North of town. Back in sites front the Sea. No hookups, but rumor has it future electrical is in the plans. Dump station on site. Several RV parks in area, but we liked this best. Big rigs no problem. Tents allowed. No cell service but Wi-Fii can be found here and there back in town. Drive in on fair sand/gravel road past a few residences, past the RV storage area right to the end of the road at the water. Quiet, dark and one a few RV parks still actually on the water.
