Vail Lake Resort, Temecula, California

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

We stayed here over Memorial day weekend 2017. The park was very full. All the premium sites were gone. We stayed in the lower Arryo Seco and it was a nice site partially shaded with sewer and water. Apparently the flooding this spring knocked out the power to the lower and upper Arryo seco area. Because of this we got 50% off our price which was great. The park was packed but still seemed quite spacious. We stayed here years ago and it was quite empty in October. The trail to vail lake is closed so no fishing. The flood knocked out the road to the lake. We went anyway as there is tons of hiking trails and my son went mountain biking here. there was nice pools open, volleyball, pickleball bocce ball. All free! We also went mini golfing twice for Free!. Kid heaven. The water slide is now closed unhappily probabaly not to reopen. We did not use the showers they work but are older. The kids gave this a 10**** I gave a seven as there are some older parts that need some work. Also they had live music at the pools and dancing at night. We camped at Vail Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Zion Canyon Campground & RV Park, Springdale, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Location, Location, Location.... This is the closest RV park to Zion. If you do not have a towed its the best option for visiting Zion. we went in July when it was 97 degrees so if you want AC you need a full hookup so your rig does not melt inside.

The Virgin river is right on the camp ground . Bring some tubing rings and you can tube on the river. They charge $23 to rent them near the park. You start with tubes near the commercial area at the visitor center. You can take to last stop near shuttle stop 8 if you want. There are about 15 sites with 30 amp service right on the river primo spots!!!

You are on shuttle stop 3 close enough to bike or walk to Zion visitors center as well if the shuttles get full in summer time.

We rented shoes and a stick to hike the narrows. You do not need the shoes in the summer when water is warm but you need a good solid hiking stick. You can use a nice pair of sneakers that can get wet. Bring one for the nice beautiful unique hike! Bring a solid waterproof bag for your phone camera and lots of water (97 degrees in summer!)

The Showers and bathrooms were ACed as well. They are newly built and really nice now. Maintained clean.

The other reviews are spot on small sites, laundry, near neighbors, etc. I gave an 8* due to location. If you are looking for a plush resort go further from Zion and drive in. We camped at Zion Canyon Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We ate at the spotted dog cafe with our doggie. Nice! The market is across the street and has most things you need. There is an adventure hiking company as well.

This is a grand family resort with tons of new activities for both adults and kids. We were in site 7 nice site near showers and laundry. We did mini golf and lots of biking nearby as well as the solar heated pool with 2 pools and 2 great slides. We did tennis, volleyball and bouncy trampoline that day. Next day canyoneering, pool again, mini ATV for kids, Zipline, Horseback riding the next day with PAINTBALL! Yeah!

Anaheim RV Village, Anaheim, California

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

Another one bites the dust. Web site says closing for renovations February 2, 2014. Arrived last night and employees are all fired as of that date. Property has been sold to Disney for an employee parking lot. Enjoying our last stay at this great park. Nice pool and hot tub. Has a game room; the kids like the vending machines. Only a few RVs still here. Disney nightly Fireworks are awesome, framed by palm trees. We camped at Anaheim RV Village in a Motorhome.

The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course, Borrego Springs, California

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $85.00
Overall Rating:      

We had an excellent stay here at the springs. Its one of the best in southern California. We camped in a 35 foot motor home near hole #5 beautiful sites, perfectly level and new pads. The electric hookups are new and available from either side. We checked in ok, and got a package for 2 massages for my wife. They have a lot of packages. Nice friendly people. We had 3 kids and 2 dogs with us. Office friendly prices were good for water and snacks. We did tennis. Pools were great and warm, nice mineral baths and Jacuzzi. Ping pong was great for kids. Massage great. We did tennis with kids walking as you need drivers license for carts. WILL return EXCELLENT. We camped at The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course in a Motorhome.

Vail Lake Resort, Temecula, California

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

Huge park with 500 sites, they are relatively large and spacious. There are no picnic tables, bring your own. Wi-Fi only at office. There is mini-golf ($3), waterslides ($10/hr), really nice pools (3 of them), small kids fishing hole, and horseshoes. Vail Lake is available to resort guests for $10 person about 2 miles away from resort. A bike is needed to get around here. The restroom was clean. Dumpsters were overflowing after weekend. We stayed in the oaks area which is more central. Lots of golf carts here. We camped at Vail Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

William Heise County Park, Julian, California

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for a cub scout campout; it was a lot of fun. We stayed in site 45 which was big and very isolated. There is a leaning tree and we came in after dark so it took us 1/2 hour to maneuver on the spot. We have a 35 foot 13 foot high rig. Has shade and sun. The park is real nice with trails, and lots of real nature. This area of park is non-hookups and there is no generator use in the park. Nice county park; there are horseshoes. Restrooms were clean. There are nice cabins to rent. They are new as the old ones burned down a few years ago in the fire. We camped at William Heise County Park in a Motorhome.

Stampede RV Park, Tombstone, Arizona

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

Very close to Tombstone historical, district, about 4 blocks. Great location in town everything walkable. We stayed in a space near the laundry and rest rooms they had a covered picnic table there. Its a large older park. There is a street running between the two sections. One part for the permanent members of the park the other for weekenders. The park is older needs some paint. The owners collect things and leave them about the park a little cluttered. The front office knows all about the town. They have an excellent breakfast restaurant in connection with some cabins they rent across the street . We were here for thanksgiving and had a free turkey dinner at the American Legion post 2 blocks away (donations). Most everything closed for Thanksgiving but the mine tour. Ask for a space away from clutter. We camped at Stampede RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hidden Shores, Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at a waterfront location that was just beautiful with a great view of the river/lakes. They are double wide spaces one for your RV and one for your towed and boat. Gravel lots with concrete pad in between. Mostly full timers here. We were between two sites that had been rented for 20 years to same folks. Everything here is first class. They have some rules. Nice beach, kids fishing dock, volleyball court, playground for kids, golf course. The place is designed for full timers and there are lots of permanent houses trailers. No rental of boats, no volley balls, no shuffleboard equipment, and no golf clubs to borrow. They don't even provide Wi-Fi in the clubhouse. Pool is super well, stocked store, library, and fitness center. Cell, coverage spotty here. They had a rodeo at the stables when we were here with $3 breakfast. It was great. Great park, bring your own stuff including your boat! We camped at Hidden Shores in a Motorhome.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

As other reviewers said this is the only campground with hookups in the park. Half of the park is for residents, mainly employees of the National Park Service. They are segregated in one area. Didn't see much of them. The sites are spacious as we were in a 35 foot plus toad and there was plenty of room. We were near a tree. Hookups were okay. Got down to 20F and no problems with water. We have a basement heater. Elk roaming through the campground. Lots of fun to see. Also saw herd of 25 on way to bright angel trail at 6:30 am. No fires here except contained. Everywhere else seemed okay and they sell firewood at store but not at trailer village. There is a cast iron BBQ grill for charcoal on each site. The picnic table is cemented to the ground. Bathrooms are heated! We had a blast. Convenient shuttle to get you where you want to go. You don't need a toad here to get around. When you check in make sure you don't block the shuttle bus. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight as halfway point to the Grand Canyon from San Diego. Very nice folks in office. Beware of the signs when you turn in it directs you to a dead end if you come at night. We had a towed so that is a problem. The owner helped me back up. Great for overnight. Cheap clean and pull through spot. We have young kids no problem also.
