It just about doesn't get any better than this RV park. We've always stopped here on our drives up & down the west coast. Good thing we called in advance for reservations, because they are almost always full. They have a full service café, store, pool, etc. Some sites seem a little tight getting backed into, but if you take your time, it works out okay. Mostly hard-packed dirt sites with fire rings. the end sites have some grass areas that are nice. We'll be back here for sure.

Date of Stay:

Rate is for a nice grassy end site with some outdoor furniture near a fire ring. That said, our only complaint about paying (about double) for a nice grassy site is, a lot of dog owners in the complex brought their pets over to the grassy site to take care of their business....even though we're sitting in our lawn chairs about 10-feet away from them. We complained to the staff about this when we were here last year, so we thought maybe they had placed some signs on the grass sites reminding the dog owners to please use the designated pet areas. So, since they haven't we decided we're not coming back here anymore.

Date of Stay:

The sites are fine with grass between. Seems like tight corners though if there was a full park. We were about the only ones there, so it felt a little spooky. You have no cell coverage if you have any security issues. The owner told us (before he left for the night) he has a Verizon booster at the office, for better coverage. That's okay for daytime coverage, but it won't do you any good if there's a problem during the night. We heard a few vehicles drive through the park in the middle of the night, but all seemed okay when we got up the next morning. You are literally in the middle of the redwoods, except for this opening, so I believe it's a great park for the summer or when more campers are staying here.

Date of Stay:

If you like trees, you'll love this campground. It does make it a little interesting when backing into your site, but we think it's worth it. Not very busy in the early winter, so it seems like they put everyone on one or two loops and leave the other one pretty much empty. I'm guessing if you ask them, you could camp there if you like camping alone. A nice long walk to the beach, or an easy drive and you're on the sand checking out plenty of driftwood. Rained while we were there, so we did not use the fire rings (bummer). The rain also prevented us from playing golf, so we shopped, and drove the beach loop drive checking out the gorgeous coastline.

We've stayed at this park a few times before. The pull-thru sites on the side of the park that are like an arc are great. Easy to get in and out. We always have a fire in the fire pits and their tables are nice for sitting & eating. It's a pleasant walk a few hundred yards through the day use park to a river. The park seems bordered and covered with trees, yet open enough for satellite usage. Right in the middle of two major cities (Eugene/Springfield), with major stores and many RV parts/service businesses. We'll be back.

Campground has reduced hours in winter, so when we called at noon from the freeway, they reminded me they close at 3pm, but they would have our site info and map at the check-in area. They did, and as we drove around the sites, we chose another open site they showed available on the map. Very friendly staff. Only glitch in their site descriptions to me is, they state "lakeside" sites, but they are at least 100-200 yards from the lake, and there are many trees between your site and the lake, so I would call these sites something other than lakeside. That said, the sites are nice, since they are in the woods. Most we saw had fire rings. We stay here and play golf at the very nice course about 2 miles away. Also in winter, nothing is open, no grocery store, no fire wood, no services of any kind, which they told me up front. If you don't like to hook-up, then un-hook to buy groceries, fire wood, etc., then stop at stores in Mt. Shasta town before driving here. We've stayed here many times and we would definitely stay here again.

Very nice staff greet you, but it's a little older & rustic looking. Most grass has died, but sites okay for overnight stay. We had 34-ft 5th wheel, so they had us pull into two pull-thru sites at a slight angle. Worked out okay after we disconnected our pickup. Just driving north and stopped for overnight stay.

Date of Stay:

Park is clean (for dirt sites), but I don't know how anyone can rate it a 10, with dirt for roads and sites.....maybe because it's in the desert? I would definitely stay here again because of it's location (right on Hwy 395) and is it a clean place to stay. Sure you can't beat the coffee & muffins in the morning, but I would say it "looks" more like a 7 or 8. If they just had a little grass somewhere it might be rated higher. I get it though....it is in the desert. Very nice friendly staff as well.

This campground (city owned) does not look as good as the website shows, but it is okay to stay in. What does this site have going for it?...location, location, location. This is right in the middle of South Lake Tahoe (about 100 yards from the lake) and a great place to use as your traveling point to go in any direction. Most of the sites do NOT have hookups, but a few have water & electric. There's a dump station on site. There are paved roads to dirt sites and lots of trees. No cable TV, but we somehow got our DISH satellite to work through a small opening in the trees. Rustic and basic, but due to the location, I might stay here again.

Another great location RV resort when traveling on Hwy 5 in northern California. We used to stay at various parks in Redding, but we will stay here from now on. Excellent resort with wide paved roads, concrete sites (somewhat level) and nice grassy areas for the table. We backed right up to the river in a beautiful site. Great helpful staff. Huge clean outdoor pool with a Jacuzzi. Kind of expensive for an overnight stay, but we chose a river site.

Date of Stay:

What a find to stay here while traveling through southern Oregon on Hwy 5. Excellent RV resort with nice wide paved roads throughout and nice grass areas between the sites. Very nice indoor pool. They also have a small creek running through the middle of the park (no water this time of year). If you like a little nightlife fun, they will shuttle you to/from the casino about a 1/2 mile away. Very clean, very good location.

This is a nice place to stay when traveling through Washington on Hwy 5. We stayed in late September, so a sign on the office door says the office is closed for the winter season, and you do a self check-in. They also have a sister campground about a mile away, so they do make visits to this site. Paved roads with dirt sites and "lots" of trees. You can easily be totally hidden from the sun if you pick the right site.

Date of Stay:

Great resort, great staff, great location. Can't beat being this close to both the towns of Bend & Sisters. Nice wide paved roads to beautiful level sites with lush green grass. A nice pond in the middle for kids to fish in. A very clean pool & jacuzzi. They delivered fire wood right to our site for a nice campfire. Can't beat this RV resort. (FYI - this used to be a KOA a few years ago and is still listed that way on some GPS systems).

     

Burns RV Park

Burns, Oregon

Date of Stay:

This RV park is okay for an overnight stay. Gravel throughout. Sites are somewhat level, but right next to the main highway. Staff was very nice. Their location is probably the reason everyone stops here (right in the middle of travel from Idaho through Oregon). As a matter of fact, don't forget to call ahead for a reservation, there are so many travelers stopping here for overnight, they fill up quickly.

Date of Stay:

This is a top notch RV park. Very nice spaces with plenty of room in between. They have some neat group sites that have 4 large pads in a square formation with a grass space in the middle of them. Great for families. Excellent staff that bend over backwards to help with anything they can. Nice office and the indoor/outdoor pool with Jacuzzi is a plus. They have about 10 sites overlooking the river. The local town of McCall (1/2 mile away) has almost anything you need, plus lots of restaurants, hardware store, boat marina, etc. We would definitely stay here again.
