Bolsa Chica State Beach, Huntington Beach, California

Date of Stay: January, 2012 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Camped here in a beach fronting site over the weekend in a motorhome. Very convenient, well laid out and clean campground. Power and water hookups at all sites. Dumping station available in the parking lot just north of campsite. Very friendly camp hosts. Not a place for solitude or privacy as you are sandwiched between the PCH and a bikeway, but at least you don't have trains to deal with. No shade and lacks rustic charm of say San Clemente SB. Some shared picnic tables available but none at your actual site, so you might want to bring your own table. But there are many attractions here. Extensive bikeway from Seal Beach to Huntington Beach is great for cycling, jogging or walking. Nice beach is right at your door step (across the bikeway) and is wide and not crowded. You probably want to wear footwear on the beach as there are quite a few broken shells around. Sunsets are nice here. And the BC Ecological Reserve opposite the beach is definitely worth a visit and walk. Oh yes and there are tons of broadcast TV channels available off-air. My wife and I (and our dog) enjoyed our stay here. Will be back! We camped at Bolsa Chica State Beach in a Motorhome.

Highlands RV Park, Bishop, California

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Location is very good even though it's not in the middle of Bishop (1 mile west). Spaces are slightly close to each other but it didn't feel too crowded. All hookups worked very well and are well laid out. Wi-Fi internet also worked well and consistently (a nice change from a lot of other RV parks). There is a fair bit of shade throughout the campground. Very nice dog walk area. Did not notice any traffic noise even though the park is conveniently located next to 395. Check-in was very easy and smooth but no discounts whatsoever. Owners were very friendly. We camped at Highlands RV Park in a Motorhome.

San Elijo State Beach, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California

Date of Stay: April, 2011 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Sites here are very difficult to book. I was lucky enough to secure a beach facing site #21 and we all have a great time at this camp site. This site is right next to the stairs leading down to the beach (the campsites are located on a bluff overlooking the beach) so it's convenient, but you do lose a bit of privacy and the beach/sea view is slightly obstructed by the stairs. The full hookups at this site was a pleasant change to the primitive sites at a lot of the state beaches. The toilets were reasonably clean, but don't expect too much. Sites were spacious and quite well separated with some level of privacy for most. The beach itself affords a very pleasant walk. We were very excited to see wave after wave of pelicans flying in formation right next to the campsites. It was a sight to behold. My guess is that this is a seasonal phenomenon. We will certainly be back. We camped at San Elijo State Beach in a Motorhome.

Silver Strand State Beach, Coronado, California

Date of Stay: January, 2011 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We were in a beach front site #123. We were a little disappointed when we arrived as we expected an unimpeded view of the beach and ocean from our site. However, in Winter, a Sand Berm piled high just between the RVs and the beach to protect against any storm surges, blocks your view of the beach and ocean. Bummer. But we still enjoyed the location tremendously. It's still great to be right at the beach front and it's a nice beach. Too bad our dog didn't have a chance to view the ocean since they are not allowed on the beach. Also, there is practically no greenery around for your dog to wander on. The parking lot style no-hookup campsites weren't great, especially when your neighbors may have their generators on the whole day from 10am-8pm - but it's not too bad. I have to say that I found the campground hosts to be exceptionally friendly and helpful. I know that a number of reviewers took exception to their strict enforcement of rules. But we all obeyed the rules and didn't have any problems. We will certainly be back again. We camped at Silver Strand State Beach in a Motorhome.

San Clemente State Beach, San Clemente, California

Date of Stay: January, 2011 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

It's great to have full hookups close to the beach. Sites were clean, well maintained and decent size. I enjoyed my site #66 on the outer loop, which provided a nice view of the ocean, though not the beach. It is a few minutes walk down a relatively steep path (one steeper than the other) to the beach. I took the less steep one and it wasn't that difficult at all. The beach is OK but not spectacular. Waves were good enough to attract a large number of surfers. I saw a few sites in the non-hookup section with excellent view of the beach. I enjoyed camping here and plan to return in the Summer. Oh, and the ranger at the entrance station was very friendly and helpful. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Motorhome.

Sac West RV Park and Campground, West Sacramento, California

Date of Stay: December, 2010 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here on a very wet weekend. Apparently some of the sites were a bit flooded, so that host was kind enough to assign us a very nice dry site close to the office. Could not find a cable connection in my site #7. Reported it and someone came over promptly to provide a cable connection from the next site. Toilets and showers were clean and functional. It was nice of the hosts to keep a heater on in the washrooms next to the office. This made a lot of difference as it was rather chilly. Convenient location close to the freeway and a few places for food and coffee. Nice campground and hosts. Would stay here again. We camped at Sac West RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park, Gilroy, California

Date of Stay: November, 2010 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We were in Gilroy for the Black Friday sales and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights. The location is exceptionally convenient, in close proximity to major stores and restaurants and 1 freeway exit from the Gilroy Premium outlets. The sites were a little close to each other and did not have picnic tables provided, but hookups and Wi-Fi worked well. Not much grass around, but the deciduous trees in the campground looked wonderful in their fall colors. The park manager, Edie was very friendly and helpful and we are grateful to her for recommending a short trip to the nearby Casa de Fruta Orchard Resort, which we enjoyed very much. We will certainly return in the future. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Vineyard RV Park, Vacaville, California

Date of Stay: November, 2010 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here for 1 night on a stopover to UC Davis. Had a pleasant stay. Location was a bit of a distance from downtown but offered a quiet and peaceful retreat. My site near the office was rather small and dated. The hookups worked well with the exception of the tap which leaked. There is no cable TV available but they are apparently working on this as an upgrade. Seems like a lot of long term residents here, but their sites were generally well kept. Restrooms/showers had rather small cubicles but were kept clean. The campground caretaker was very friendly and helped us settle in to our site even though their office had closed. I could also see him riding around the campsite often. The swimming pool, children's playground and dog run looked nice, although we didn't try them out. With a bit of upgrading, this place could be outstanding. We camped at Vineyard RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ouray RV Park & Cabins, Ouray, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in a back-in river site. It was very nice and the river walk was very enjoyable. However, it was a long walk to the restroom/showers and hard to find in the dark of the night. Otherwise, everything worked well including the Wi-Fi. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Our GPS indicated that this address was 1 mile away in the downtown Ouray area (which is incorrect) - so do look out for the Ouray RV park sign about 1 mile north of downtown Ouray. We will probably stay here again. We camped at Ouray RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Canyon Gateway RV Park, Williams, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Very easy access to/fro freeway. Sites are basic but hookups worked (including the basic cable). We had very usable Wi-Fi (I'm doing the review right now through their Wi-Fi), but I'm at the closest site to the office. Check-in was quick. Bathrooms were quite clean and serviceable. I didn't have any problems with the lava rock ground as I wear footwear. In fact, I'm happy with this flooring especially now when it's so wet during a thunderstorm. There were however some run down RVs in this campground. They appear to be there for storage. If you are looking for a no frills full hookup site, you might want to consider this. We camped at Canyon Gateway RV Park in a Motorhome.

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Location, Location, Location. First time attending the Balloon Fiesta and my wife and I agree that we will definitely stay here again in the future. It's just so convenient. Shuttles running every 10-15 minutes ferry guests to and from the Fiesta grounds and it is within walking distance if you prefer to walk. The additional bonus is that the RV park is on the flight path of the balloons. Just this morning many of the balloons floated just above our RV and some even landed close by. That was really cool! The folks staying here are also very friendly and chatty. We stayed in a Premier site which included a 20 amp hookup and water delivered to your RV when you place a 'Water' card on your windscreen by fresh water trucks that pass around every hour or two. This place can be pricey though. We had to pay the 3 night minimum (at $65 per night for the premium site) even though we only stayed 2 nights. I think it costs $20 for the sewage truck to come by (we didn't use this service). This is basically a large parking lot and sites are really close to each other. We camped at Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park in a Motorhome.

Gunnison KOA, Gunnison, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

I agree with the previous reviewer that this is one of the better KOA campgrounds. The fishing and boating ponds and other decorative structures provided a wonderful ambiance to the park. And the fall colors around the ponds were just amazing. All hookups worked as advertised. Restrooms/showers were clean. We will return here again even though we noticed quite a few other RV campgrounds as were driving in and out of Gunnison. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

Aspen-Basalt Campground, Basalt, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I booked this campground because I wanted a full hookup site near the Maroon Bells for fall colors photography. Had some problem finding the campground and got the voice mail all four times that I tried calling. However, after settling in to our site, all hookups worked and the restrooms/showers were sufficient and quite clean. The owners were very helpful (once you get to talk to them) and friendly. We will stay here again. We camped at Aspen-Basalt Campground in a Motorhome.

Moraine Campground (NPS Campground), Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 2 nights in the Moraine Park Campground. Very convenient location. We visited at end of September and the elk rut in Moraine Park was within walking distance. Driving to Bear Lake and other attractions was a breeze. No hookups but the water supply and sewage dumps at the entrance worked well. Our site A140 was close to a clean restroom (no showers). Sites were reasonably spaced and we enjoyed our stay at this campground. Will return. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The 24 hours/day check-in was really convenient. Very nice park with 2 wonderful swimming pools and a jacuzzi. Friendly staff and all hookups worked as advertised. Easy access to the I-15 although you would have to be a bit creative getting on to it as you cannot turn left as you exit the park. The restrooms/showers could do with some renovation. You have to pay extra for Wi-Fi access and the signal apparently only reaches those in close proximity to the main office. We suggested to the very receptive GM about restoring their shuttle buses to the strip which were terminated some time back. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort in a Motorhome.
