Ocean Mesa Campground at El Capitan, Santa Barbara, California

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $115.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground seems slightly tired to us. Very tight turns for a big rig. Sadly a very, very bad ant problem. Good location, easy access from the Highway. Pathetic picnic tables We camped at Ocean Mesa Campground at El Capitan in a Motorhome.

Wine Country RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

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

We've stayed here multiple times. However, we feel this park is becoming slightly tired. On the upper tier the lovely concrete sites are surrounded by dirt and/or dust. Additionally, if one has a 45' motorhome there is very little parking for ones towed vehicle. Sadly one member of the staff showed us the wrong way to come into our site and we had to circle around very tight corners to get where we belonged. We camped at Wine Country RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Pocatello KOA (Formerly Pocatello Creek Campground and RV Park), Pocatello, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

Poorly designed and quite dirty here. I'm not sure we would stay here again? Largely a dirt campground with a ton of dust and low overhanging trees that need to be pruned.....badly. We camped at Pocatello KOA (Formerly Pocatello Creek Campground and RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Blackwell Island RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

We would not say this is a rv resort, however the location is very nice and quite near Coeur d'alene. Tight spaces and a somewhat confusing parking arrangement. We came here for a pickleball tournament and loved the town of Coeur d'alene. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Take the boat tour (about $25) downtown. Also try dining at Tony's on the Lake restaurant, or the Floating restaurant within walking distance. If coming to play pickleball there are other choices north of town where one can practice at another rv resort in Blanchard.

Crown Villa RV Resort, Bend, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

We came here to participate in a Pickleball Tournament. We've stayed here 6 or 8 times over the last several years. To us it seems the service has slipped a little bit here and the park caters to more residents than RVers. Having said that still one of the best in this area. Good steady power and clean, neat and well done sewer connection. Pay particular attention when approaching this facility. Don't use your GPS but follow the parks instructions when coming the first time! A low bridge is not the way to approach this park. Follow their instructions! We camped at Crown Villa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Blackwell Island RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This 'park' is exactly that it's a parking lot near town. Wi fi weak, few good sites to be had for our 45 footer. For my money I'd go up the road to Blanchard. Golf course and pickleball up there at their community. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beaver KOA, Beaver, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent convenience for overnight stay as very close to the interstate. We continue to believe however that KOA's are overpriced. Bigger rigs like ours need to be choosy when selecting a site. We have a 45 footer plus a tow vehicle. Only 2 or 3 sites here would accommodate us. We camped at Beaver KOA in a Motorhome.

Indian Waters RV Resort & Cottages, Indio, California

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

Probably the best "overall " deal in this area. The convenience of this resort is the name of the tune. It is gated, which is a plus, and they have excellent pickleball courts (which we really love). Also personal trainers which are a different touch for an RV facility. We camped at Indian Waters RV Resort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

Terrific restaurants in this area. Best deal in town at the Cliff House. Early birds get terrific food for under $20 ! Also try Shields Date garden (outside patio).......reasonably priced for this area. Take the tram up to the top of the mountains. Golf everywhere, Polo fields too !

Canyon Farms RV Park, Kelowna, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

What a lovely little find this jewel was. Only 8 or 9 sites, but neat as a pin and very well managed. Very hands on by the owner.

This is not a RESORT, this is an actual farm and we loved it. A little ways out of town but we would highly recommend this spot.

We stayed in a 45' motor home and it was a little snug but very do-able. We camped at Canyon Farms RV Park in a Motorhome.

City of Bridgeport - Marina Park, Bridgeport, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Small campground with boat launch right on the Columbia River. Decent sized pull throughs, however not big enough for 45' plus tow.

Clean, obviously well managed, decent view.

Needs better 'close-in' directions to campground. If you miss the correct street it's not fun.

We'd recommend it to others. We camped at City of Bridgeport - Marina Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this facility many times. Over the years the foliage has grown in nicely and it's become an even nicer park. The addition of Pickleball is a nice touch as well.

Excellent resort style restrooms at all remote pools.

The on-site (at the entrance) diner (restaurant) is very good; however the portions are a little on the big side.

Very easy access to local casinos and hundreds of good restaurants.

Ambassador RV Resort, Caldwell, Idaho

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed at the Ambassador before when traveling through this area. I'm a little concerned that it's turning a little bit trashy. Boats, older cars, extra vehicle on sites etc.

On the plus side the entry roads and in-between roads are extremely wide and easily to navigate, even for the biggest rigs.

Underground sprinklers are also a nice plus so your coach does not get water stained. We camped at Ambassador RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A Flying j truck stop is just down the road.

Instead of going to Boise down the Interstate, when looking for a restaurant or sightseeing, go out the resort and turn left at the traffic light. The road has lots of restaurants and places to stop and explore. Plus the drive is very pretty in a semi rural kind of way.

Stunning star-filled nights really illuminate this campground. Is it a resort? No. Is it basic camping at it's best? Yes.

Easy driving distance to the Grand Canyon and beautiful Route 89 and 89A.

Big enough even for our 45' motorhome.

Ruidoso Motorcoach Ranch (Class A Motorhomes Only), Alto, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

A brand new, wonderful RV resort with all the amenities. We stayed here in our 45' motorhome. Each spacious, concrete pad site has it's own gas firepit and a private patio.

Terrific location close by to the resort town of Ruidoso.

The resort has a mutual relationship with nearby Rainmaker Resort (about 2 miles away) that has a full service restaurant, 18 hole championship golf course, spa etc.

Brand new resort. Book this one early in Spring of 2016 as it surely will book up early. Awesome !

We'd highly recommend it to others. We camped at Ruidoso Motorcoach Ranch (Class A Motorhomes Only) in a Motorhome.
