L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park, Buxton, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

It was our fist visit to this park and we were there for the bike trail. The park is very nice and has wide, open sites on gravel. The roads and driveways are paved, the sites are on very fine gravel. Hookups are there, well working. You have plenty of room on your site and between sites is plenty of grass. The restrooms are what you can expect at a State Park, they were clean but could be cleaner. What I missed was a ventilation in the restrooms and the individual showers, the moisture can't get out and therefore you see mildew grow in the upper corners. Our satellite worked fine but we didn't have a phone or internet signal from Virgin mobile, both were working fine down in Banks. We will definitely return, we liked it very much. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Roamer's Rest RV Park, Tualatin, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

There are turn off lanes from both sides off Hwy 99, therefore, access to the park is easy. However, the park's driveway immediately goes into a steep downgrade right where the office is. No problem for me, some might be afraid to stop there. Staff was friendly and helpful. It was my fist visit and we could check out the park before we committed to staying. Well, staff directed us to a pull through site and we loved it. We payed for 7 nights, including taxes = $ 231.00. Full hookup with 17 cable TV channels, some of them are a bit snowy. After 3 nights I put up my satellite and got a good signal. Wi-Fi is there and it worked at the office and in the laundry room, but absolutely not at our site. The signal was there, but no data was going through. Bring your own Wi-Fi solution to this park, as some longtimers told me too. The sites are level, narrow and paved. At our site we were able to push out our slideout and our awning was just about at neighbours slideout. Grass between the sites. Throughout the week you are woken up by longtimer's diesel engines as they are going to work. The washrooms are 4 individual bathrooms with basin, toilet and shower each. Nice and clean but not superclean. There are washers and dryers too. Portland bus stops are right at the parks driveway and make it easy to go into downtown. We will return when again in the Portland area. We camped at Roamer's Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Olympia Campground, Tumwater, Washington

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

It was our 3rd stay at this park (4 nights), always in winter. The roads are paved, sites are on gravel and you might need a board or two to level, nothing major though. The sites are left-right interchanged and pretty narrow. I didn't have a problem with my slideout but no chance for the awning, the trees were too close. The hookups are dated but still working, 30 amps only and no cable TV. The WiFi worked o.k. but we were on site #3 pretty close to the office. I setup my satellite dish and got a very good signal, but my sat tripod was on the picnic table. Any site further away from the office is way more in the trees and therefore no sat signal. The restrooms were clean and had very nice tile floors. The shower is a fiberglass one-piece unit (perfect) but the changing room is a little bit small and should have more than 1 hook. As the whole park is under tall trees (very nice), there are millions and millions of pine, fir and other needles covering the ground and you will get them anywhere! It was raining heavily on our last 2 days and there were plenty of water puddles, some deeper than others and we tracked dirt everywhere. That is what you get when you want to be as close to nature as possible. The noise from the distant highway was slightly heard, but almost nothing from the close by airport. We will return. We camped at Olympia Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Seattle / Tacoma KOA, Kent, Washington

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This is pretty much the only RV Park in the southern area of Seattle. The park itself is fine, a little bit tight though for 35' and longer RV's. The road noise wasn't too bad if you are used to a little bit of noise. The sites are level, paved and depending what site you are on wide enough for slideout and awning. If you get a site with a tree right there, you are out of luck regarding slideout or awning. I have chosen one without cable TV and did setup my satellite, which was working fine. The WiFi is with Tengointernet, it's free and it kicked me out every once in a while. The signal could have been stronger too. The washrooms have a real nice tile floor but unfortunately the shower bases are heavily scratched and the paint is peeling off. That really doesn't fit the remaining picture of the washrooms. The shower curtains should have been washed long ago or simply changed, they just didn't look good anymore. My impression is that they charge too much for what you get, but then again, it is the only RV Park in that area. We might stay again. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Camping, Fort Langley, British Columbia

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

About year ago we already stayed at this park and we stayed again because it is very convenient for us and our visit. Nothing has changed, the washrooms could be cleaner and could definitely be nicer. The roads are a very good collection of different pot holes of all sizes. This time we had a level site. I have chosen a site without WiFi and had to go to the office. There, the signal was good and strong. Cable TV worked and we could enjoy about 20 channels. We had 30 amps and I didn't hookup to the water. The site is wide enough for a slide out and long enough for a 35' 5er with truck up front. For what we got I believe the price is a little bit high but we might return as it is very convenient for us. We camped at Fort Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Halcyon Hot Springs, Nakusp, British Columbia

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

The RV park of this hot spring is more or less a gravel pit with some hookups. The sites are all on dirt, backup in and only about 3 pull through sites. The sites are level but short and narrow. The hookups are front left and depending where your power cord is, you can't even backup to the end of the site. Small bushes provide some sort of privacy between the sites. The washrooms are far away in the main building and could have been nicer done and cleaner too. Cable TV worked fine but only a few channels are available. WIFI worked past 10.00 p.m. only after everybody else was in bed and from about 07.00 a.m. on no signal anymore, very week signal at the RV Park. If you visit the hot pools it is o.k. to park here for the night, but don't come with an RV longer than 35' and if you come with a 5er of this length, you have a problem to park your truck. The hot spring pools are kind of o.k., however, I expected something nicer and better maintained after all the hype I have heard and read. Maybe it has something to do with the not so busy winter time? We camped at Halcyon Hot Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground), Castlegar, British Columbia

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Only RV park in Castlegar open in winter. Plenty of seasonal guests but not really old RV's. Sites are gravel and level. Our hookups were front left and our power cord just made it to the pedestal. Cable TV was fine and Wi-Fi too, free and good. Office and washroom building is dated and could need a good update. Washrooms and showers are older style and about as clean as possible, but still looked dated. Grounds were OK and will probably be pretty nice in summer. Setup along river is very nice and I can imagine in summer time it is a very nice park with plenty of flowers and tall trees. We will return on our next trip to this area. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Fifth Wheel.

NK'MIP RV Park, Osoyoos, British Columbia

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

In winter time, this park has plenty of seasonal guests. However, it didn't look too bad as there were almost no very old RV's visible. The sites are level, mostly backup in, long enough for a 5er and truck up front. Sites are gravel with a concrete pad for the picnic table and bushes between the sites for privacy. Hookups are good but almost at ground level. Washrooms and showers are not at the same level as the sites or the park in general. Showers are coin op and as the building is new, it could have been done more nicely. Cable TV worked, WiFi too but had to pay an add. $ 5.00 per day and register with Tengo internet. Good Sam doesn't give you a discount. We will return but after reading the comments and ads I was little bit disappointed. We camped at NK'MIP RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Camping, Fort Langley, British Columbia

Date of Stay: December, 2011 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived on a Sunday in December, the gate was closed and we had to call for somebody to open the gate and checking us in. There were plenty of sites available and the office person insisted on giving us one of the most expensive sites even though I didn't really want one of them. The sites are on gravel and the pull throughs are pretty much sloping forward, not too bad left-right. The hookups worked but Wi-Fi kicked me out every once in a while. The sites were wide enough for slide out and awnings. The restrooms weren't that clean on Sunday but were cleaner the next day even though not super clean. I have heard lots of good comments about this park before and honestly, I was little bit disappointed but maybe I was simply expecting more after what I have heard before. I might return but could as well try another park in the area. We camped at Fort Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Bellingham RV Park, Bellingham, Washington

Date of Stay: December, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We only stayed 1 night while driving through. However, I would stay longer if needed. The park is close to everything, grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc. There is little noise from the airport, next to nothing from I-5. Roads are paved, sites are gravel, a little bit sloping forward and long enough for big rigs and tow vehicle. Hookups are all fine and worked well. Sites are close together with a little bit of grass in between. Just wide enough for slideouts and awnings. No trees, no privacy. Restrooms were really clean and the individual shower rooms were big. The office closes at 05:00 p.m. in winter, therefore, get here before or you won't get the code for the restrooms and the WI-FI which, by the way, worked great. I will return if again in the area. We camped at Bellingham RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

South Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: December, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights and loved it. The sites are paved, level enough and wide enough for slideouts and awnings. However, plenty of sites are not suitable for big rigs as the angle to backup into the site is not favorable and/or the trees and branches are too close. We couldn't park our 35' 5th-wheel in the preferred spot with plenty of sun (winter time!), had to chose a more treed one. Not too bad, but way less sunshine. The hookups are fine and worked well. Central dump station at entrance. My Virgin mobile worked pretty fast too. The restrooms are all tiled and very clean. However, the separating wall between the "dressing room" and the actual shower is not wide enough and after the shower the whole floor area and the wall is wet. The beach is just a short walk and there are plenty of walking trails. No noise from Hwy 101 but the odd airplane flying over as the airport is not too far. We will definitely be back! We camped at South Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park, Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: December, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 4 nights from Friday to Tuesday morning in a full hookup site. Almost all full hookup sites are in the H loop and that is where all the ATV people are! Be prepared for some noise, especially on Friday & Saturday evenings. It was much better on Sunday & Monday but I will not return for a weekend as we are not ATV'ers. Even the quiet hours weren't observed which pulled a bit on my nerves on Friday evening. The washrooms were what you can expect from a State Park and they were about as clean as you can expect when a big crowd is present. As the H loop was pretty full, the 30 amps at our site were cutting in and out. Virgin mobile did just work in that park but was slow. As almost all full hookup sites were reserved, we didn't had much of a choice upon arriving but found a site long enough for our 35' 5th-wheel. The sites are paved and wide enough for slideouts and awning. All sites are level, pretty shaded and in winter I would appreciate less trees and way more sun. The access to the dunes and the different lakes is nice, but a bicycle will definitely help to get around. There are enough trails to walk around but looking for the sun you only can get into the dunes, everything else is in the forest. We will return, but not on a weekend. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort, Coos Bay, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

The sites are on gravel, more or less level. You might need a board under the wheels. The gravel sites are somewhat narrow but there is enough green space between the sites for your slideouts and awnings. The hookups are OK and worked fine. The Wi-Fi was excellent. It is with Tengo internet; it's fast and reliable. The restrooms were clean, but a little dated. The proximity to the beach is world class - if you like the sound of the surf. The downside of this park is the picture it gives from the road when driving by. Unfortunately, that is where the older style RV's with the longtimers are parked. Once you are past them, you are in a perfect location. We will definitely come back. We camped at Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Shoreline RV Park & Campground, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 2 nights but after the first I wanted to move but as all the really better parks were closed, we stayed again. The other open parks in town were not that much better. Wi-Fi is promised and the connection to the office works well, but from there on nothing is going through. A simple reboot could probably solve the problem but the office person refused to touch it! I was told the restrooms are locked from 6 pm to 8 am. However, at 05.30 pm they were locked already and upon leaving on the last morning I finally had the possibility to check them out. Well, you better lock them! The upside of this park is its location right in downtown and the proximity to more or less everything. The longtimers in the park didn't really help to improve the picture and the yelling around midnight made another RVer stepping out and yelling back and asking for a quiet time. I won't return and if again in this area at the same time of year would probably not even stay in this town again as the good parks are all closed. We camped at Shoreline RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mad River Rapids RV Park, Arcata, California

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 3 nights and will do that again. The sites are all paved, pull through and backup in, longer and shorter ones with enough grass between the sites for awnings and slideouts. Big rigs don't have a problem. However, the pavement is about as wide as the RV and when walking around it you are walking on the grass. No problem with that, but on rainy days that grass gets really soft and then you change from slippers to boots. Additionally, the pavement is uneven and provides plenty of spots where water accumulates on rainy days, watch out. The hookups are OK and worked fine even thought the Wi-Fi kicked me out every once in a while but came back on again. The washrooms were clean not super clean and maybe already a bit dated and could use some updates or renovation. The noise from Hwy 101 is minimal and actually, you could only hear the ambulance or police using their sirens. Staff was friendly and helpful and I really can recommend this place. We camped at Mad River Rapids RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
