Yucaipa Regional Park, Yucaipa, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a county park, campground. There are separate areas for RV', tents, and day use. Very clean well maintained with lawns and many sites have shade This is an urban park but very quiet and does a great job of separating and blocking view of nearby housing while offering great views of wild lands and mountains Park staff are knowledgeable of their facility and friendly. The park is within a few blocks of all kind of businesses, stores and restaurants There is a senior discount during the week. We camped at Yucaipa Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Three day stay and the park was almost at capacity! Very friendly staff and park this trip was spotlessly clean despite very heavy use. Lots of nearby stores ( you will need your toad) two Walmart within minutes plus a number of RV supply stores. Several vendors who will work on site Restaurant within easy walking distance with trolley within three blocks. A very high end resort. We camped at Chula Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Sam's Beachcomber RV Resort, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

The resort is as nice and more reasonably priced than another high end resort in the immediate area. Staff very helpful and friendly. They found us an upgraded site and only charged regular price We found the restrooms & Showers brand new and squeaky clean. Beautiful pool and spa with shade. 24 hour security on premise. Only negative thing was in our particular site, hookups were farther than normal and we had to add an extension for both sewer and water. It appeared that this is a renovated site that probably had a mobile home on it in the past New cement pad but not quite level rest of site is gravel with paved streets Wifi at the clubhouse but good G4 in the area. No cable but the say over the air reception is good. A very nice place to stay but 120 degrees hot during the summer. We camped at Sam's Beachcomber RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Boulder Creek RV Resort, Lone Pine, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a RV campground, not high end resort as some mistake it for. That being said it is a very comfortable, clean, safe place to stay for a night or a week. We have stayed here a number of times in the past and have never had a problem. It is a desert park so can get hot, windy and the sites are dirt; but they have a pool and jacuzzi, good electricity, wifi and have coffee on in the morning for their campers. There is a mini store for groceries and a few RV accessories They have spots for all sizes and kind of rigs and a great dog walk. They could do a bit better with ADA issues but can accommodate. Town with several restaurants and fuel and provisions is just a couple of miles away. We camped at Boulder Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If headed north and enough fuel for another 40 miles. Get diesel/gas at the casino just north of Independence. As of 7/2017 it was about .10-.15 cents per gallon cheaper than other stations.

Chula Vista RV Resort, Chula Vista, California

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $101.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at this bay side park several times and enjoyed each stay. The park is very busy this time of year and since a competing park in the area has closed, has become the only park in the area on the water. It appears they are pushing their rates to an all time high. While they can, one has to wonder if they are pricing themselves out of range of many campers. We discovered later they had not given any of several discounts we would have been eligible for, even through we are in their data base. Make sure you ask for any discount at time of check in and don't assume they will offer them.

The park itself is an older park and spaces are close together but separated by shrubbery so helps with privacy. Facilities are well maintained and staff is friendly and helpful. Summer weather is perfect, which accounts for the park being near capacity much of the time. There is a good restaurant within walking distance and a number of other good restaurants in surrounding areas. RV repair and supply locations are also available in Chula Vista with several vendors who will do work at the resort.

A very nice resort with lots to do, but beware, you pay for it! We did enjoy our stay but will have to consider cost before future visits. We camped at Chula Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Yucaipa Regional Park, Yucaipa, California

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

Our first trip to this park. Green lawns, trees, friendly and helpful park staff. Our reserved site was not ready on arrival so they provided us with list of available sites to see if we could find one we liked more. They put us in a site designed for three rigs as it was not being used. Understand the park was not full during our 3 day stay, but sites are huge, easy access and many are satellite friendly. Within 1 mile of stores, resturants, and fuel. A great place to stay but they often are full so reservations are recommended. We camped at Yucaipa Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Skinner Recreation Area, Winchester, California

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is always a popular place to camp for a few days for us as it is close to where we have our base. This is not an RV park but rather a camp ground. Many spaces are satellite friendly, spaces are quite level but on dirt with only selected sites that have grass nearby.

Good cell phone service and your personal hot spot on either Verizon or AT&T works very well. The campground also has wifi that you can pay for.

This is a very easy park for new RV'ers to practice their skills as there is a lot of room between sites and the dirt forgives mistakes that might be made!

Dog friendly and lots of room to walk fish, or even boat. No body contact with the lake is allowed, but there is a splash park that operates in the summer. There is a small store and gas pumps on the campground property .
Local area provides wine tasting, restaurants of all kinds, food shopping and fuel along with other stores. A very nice park, a bit rustic but a chance to feel you are a long way from the city while just being outside of a good sized city. This campground is well worth a visit!! We camped at Lake Skinner Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Don't often stay at KOA but this campground was a pleasant surprise friendly and helpful staff, level, wide, and long pull thru's Mede for easy parking. The heated swimming pool was a plus. Felt it was a bit pricy but within reason. Saw they had a tent area that was shaded on grass. Most sites satellite friendly. Good fast wifi. We camped at Beaver KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a city park and it appears has a number of extended stay residents park is neat and clean but not new and shows some wear. Maneuvering a big rig can be dicey as streets and sites are narrow ( in all fairness we were a 38' class a with a toad )

Staff is very friendly, pleasant and helpful. We ended up with a tree in front of our dish no no TV for the one night we stayed. Wifi very fast even with a full park. We camped at Golden Spike RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grande Hot Springs Resort (formerly Eagles Hot Lake RV Park), La Grande, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Spotlessly clean rural park about 5 easy miles off the freeway. All sites are large flat gravel and level

What makes this park stand out is the naturally heated water in the soaking pool and spa. While we found the spa a bit too warm four our taste, the pool temp was perfect for a soak, in the high 80's!

Flying J at the freeway for fuel helps with handy fuel befor heading on up the road. Most spaces open and clear so most if not all the park is satellite friendly. We camped at Grande Hot Springs Resort (formerly Eagles Hot Lake RV Park) in a Motorhome.

New spotlessly clean resort. Many amenities staff helpful & friendly. Sites level and easy access even with a toad

Terraced hillside sites, some better than others some easy access, others more difficult. Very little area that is safe to hook or unhook your toad. Once in place however, a very pretty park with lots of trees. Few sites satellite friendly but they have good cable
