Calistoga RV and Campground, Calistoga, California

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is our 4th time here. A note on getting there. Roads that come in to Calistoga from N, E, and W are all twisty, narrow, and can be steep. I have found that coming in from the North on CA 128 is worth the extra time it may take vs your other options. The CG is a large open fenced gravel lot with 20,30, and 50 amp electric and water with sewer HU at 50 amp sites Most sites are drive thru but they also have back ins. The rates they have for the 30 amp sites are $42 on Fri. and Sat. and $40 the rest of the week, see their site for 50 amp rates. They take Passport America Sun. thru Thurs. We had a 30 amp drive thru site that was nice and level. The bathrooms and showers are in an updated cinder block building. They needed cleaning but had great hot water and pressure. The park has wifi that is pretty fast and Verizon phone and Mifi work fine. The park is next to a golf course and surrounded by vinyards and wineries. You are only about 3/4 of mile from down town. This is the only place in the area that can handle big rigs. Be sure and check for special events going on in town as the RV park will fill up and reservations are recommended. They have a stock car race track at the Fairground and I imagine that it could get noisy when they are racing. We will stay here again when in the area. This is a no frills park but is a great place to stay and check out the area. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

If you hit all the wineries in the area you are going to be there a few weeks and probably end up in rehab. excellent restaurants in town and there's even a brewery with great food. Go to the petrified forsest of Redwoods and there's a restored grist mill down the road.

Parker's Resort, Guerneville, California

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We got here following a long rainy period. They only have 1 or 2 sites that would support the coach and not sink into the lawn. The roads are gravel as was the site we had we had, we had to add 3" of lift to get level in addition to the on board system. It has some low hanging wires so we had to pull in facing forward and stop short of the wires. This put the 30 amp plug at the front of the coach and our cord was too short. The park had a 3o amp extension cord and we made the hook up fine. They have no sewer or dump station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones there. The bathroom and showers were clean and the showers had great hot water and pressure. They have wifi that was pretty fast, I'm not sure how fast it would be when the place is full during the summer. Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine too. The site we had was mostly shaded by some Redwood trees. It's less than a mile (maybe .5 mi) into town and all the usual services. There's a brew pub down the street that has pretty good beer and ok food. This is a great place to base out of to explore the Redwood preserves in the area and access to the coast and Bodega Bay. Notes: The $49 was a winter rate and did not include the 12% tax. If you come in from the East be sure and take "River Road" from 101. It's a straight shot and easy drive. Your GPS will probably try and route you on 116. I would strongly suggest that you avoid this route. When pulling out of the park use caution, the traffic from the right is coming downhill at a good clip and you can't see up the road very far. If we're in the area we will probably stay here again. My research showed it to be the least expensive place in the area and easiest to get to. We camped at Parker's Resort in a Motorhome.

Armstrong Redwood preserve. Park at the visitor center and walk into the park at no charge for a nice 1.5 + mile hike/stroll through the redwoods. Stumptown brewery is just up the road and has pretty good beer and so so food. Great place to stage out to explore the coast. Jenner and Bodega Bay are pretty close.

Redwood Empire Fairgrounds, Ukiah, California

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Roads paved, sites gravel and level, easy to get around on. Bath room and showers were utilitarian but clean, with good hot water and pressure. Verizon and Mifi work great, the park wifi is pretty fast most of the time but slows down at times. Not much in the way of shade. This is a good place to stay a couple of days and go check out the area. Note if you show up during buisness hours and want to use a credit card go to the office. The rest of the time go check in with the host. They only take checks or cash. We'll stay here again if in the area. The 50 amp site we were at only had 20 and 50 amp hook up on the pedestal. The 30 amps are probably the back in sites. We camped at Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park), Garberville, California

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This park seems to have more room between sites than most KOA's I've stayed at. The CG is old but the the up keep has been good. Roads: paved and narrow so it's easy to trail your rear wheels over the grass or into somebodys rig on the corner sites. Sites gravel and not all that level and very narrow. Hook ups are at the rear of the sites so be sure and take that into consideration when setting up so your hoses and cords can reach the hook ups. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. Showers have great hot water and good pressure. The only issue I had with the showers is that the shower heads are low and might be an issue for folks who are taller than me. (about 90 % of the population) Verizion phone and Mifi worked well and they have their own wifi. The amount of free access is somewhat limited but enough to take care of most buisness and if you run over the limit you can buy more time at very reasonabl rates. Security seemed pretty good and we had no problems. The only discounts they give is for the KOA card and military. We've stayed at a numbe of parks in the area at this time of year and have found that this is the nicest one that's open. We will probably stay here again when we're in the area. We camped at Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Mad River Rapids RV Park, Arcata, California

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Roads and sites paved and the roads are easy to get around on. Check in was a breeze however after he charged my card I was informed that the cable was out. We got to our site, a back in, with easy access and right next to the bathroom. As it's prone to do in this area it rained, not much by local standards but we are now somewhere between a rv and a boat. We are sitting large puddle that is a pain to deal with. Showers were clean and had great hot water and prett good pressure but it appears their plumber put in the faucets backwards. So if you want hot turn it to cold and vice a versa. Verizon phone and Mifi worked well and their Wifi was ok but a bit slow for everyday use. We will probably stay here again for a night so we can resupply from Costco and Safeway but not any longe than a day. Road noise wasn't too bad and the park is extremly well lit. We camped at Mad River Rapids RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kamp Klamath RV Park, Klamath, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Roads are paved and easy to get around on, sites are gravel, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers were clean with ok pressure and plenty of hot water. This is pleasant CG at the end of a not very busy road right on the Klamath river. They have wifi which we couldn't get to work and cable which we couldn't get to work but I'm pretty sure that was operator failure on my end. Verizion cell and Mifi worked fine. They have a little camp store with last minute stuff you might need. This is an excellent place to go check out the Redwoods. The camping rate is actually < $20 with Passport America. Come with your food well stocked as the closest shopping is in Crescent City. We have stayed at other CG's in the area for about the same price at about this time of year, we'll be staying here on our next visit to the the area.

Cove Palisades State Park (Crooked River Campground), Culver, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Basics: Water and electric at all sites that were open, dump station on the way out. Roads easy to get around on and paved as are the sites. Verizon phone and mifi work but the mifi was slow and the phone iffy. If you go up on the rim you have all the phone and mifi service you can handle. Showers had good hot water, pressure, and were clean. Nice park with shade trees but plenty of clear sky for solar or TV. They have a pet area. There are two C.G.s in Cove Palisades Park. Crooked River CG is up near the East entrance to the park and is close to the rim. The Deschutes C.G. is farther down from the rim. If you come into the park from the West side be aware that the grade doing down into the canyon is probably 10% or more and has some legit 10 mph hair pin turns. If you are uncomfortable on roads like this come in from the East side. Nice hikes to the view looking down into the canyon. If we're in the area we'll stay here again. We camped at Cove Palisades State Park (Crooked River Campground) in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Paved roads and sites easy to get around in. Plenty of sites for large rigs, 1st come so some of the large sites may have been taken. Power 20, 30, 50 amp with water at site. Dump station on the way out. The showers were clean by the pressure was so-so and hot water falls into the almost warm but not cold category. Some nice trails that wander around the park. Your about 7 miles from John Day with has a nice little micro brewery with some pretty good food. We'd stay here again if we're in the area.

Fish House Inn and RV Park, Dayville, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice small RV CG. We stayed in an overflow site and only had 30 amp power hook up and it wasn't that level we had to add 3" of boards to level out. Roads are gravel as are the sites and it's a snap to get around in. Showers and bathroom were spotless, The showers had good pressure and hot water. You're located right in the heart of Dayville and it's any easy stroll to all of downtown and the suburbs. This is a great location to go explore the John Day Fossil Beds. Do yourself a favor and go to the Dayville Cafe and have some pie. They have a list of 35 pies that that make and about 10 of those are served daily and they rotate. We will stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Fish House Inn and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Basics roads paved and easy to maneuver. Showers were clean with ok pressure and lukewarm water. Loops B and C have power all of loop C is 30 amp with water, loop be has 20/30/50 with water. Loop C had the largest sites that can handle any size rig. Loop B has smaller sites but a few large sites that can handle big rigs. We had minimal luck with Verizon and Mifi. We did not have a booster. The site was gravel and level. We had a nice view of the river and the spacing on our site was great. We stay here again if we're in the area.

Craters of the Moon National Monument/Lava Flow Campground, Arco, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

The park has several loops. The two upper loops are great for small to medium class B,C and maybe some small class A's. In other words if you have a 36+ foot rig don't bother. The main loop has several pull thru's and back ins that will fit the largest rigs on the road. There are also 2 large pull thru's on the East side of the road by the entry station. Roads are paved and pretty easy to maneuver around in the lower loop, it gets a bit tight in the upper loops but can be done with care. NOTE: If you cut a corner you will stand an excellent chance of trashing a tire. The lava is very sharp. There was minimal Verizon phone and Mifi in the campground. However I found that if you drive a mile east of the entrance to the overlook you can get great Verizon phone and Mifi. I also found that you had phone reception in various areas of the park. Come to the park fully supplied with full water tank, empty waste tanks, food and beverages. It's 25 miles to the closest town, Arco. The park is quiet with minimal road noise and dark. Excellent place to watch the stars. This park is 1st come and it's not unusual to see a small SUV towing a teardrop in a nice huge pull thru. Some sites can be a major challenge to get level. The spacing is nice and the sites are set up for privacy near the picnic tables. We drive a 36' class A with a Subaru toad. Note you must pay by credit card and you can only buy 1 day at a time. If you want to get a spot I would suggest getting there early, early. It was full every night of the 5 we were there in the middle of September. There is 1 handicapped site with 20 amp power available by the bathroom. There are no hosts this year, maybe next year. No dump station and no water fill stations, but potable water hydrants are scattered around the park. We'd stay here again. We camped at Craters of the Moon National Monument/Lava Flow Campground in a Motorhome.

The best hike in the Park can be accessed from the campground. It's about 2.25 miles from the campground to the Splatter Cones. The trail gains about 730' of elevation total. It follows the rims, descends into Cinder Cones and back out. Note all distances and elevations are 1 way.

Baker's Hole Campground - USFS, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

We figured, after Labor Day, getting a camp site in Yellowstone would be no problem. No dice. We arrived at Baker's Hole on a Thursday about 2 pm. There were 2 sites left. We shoehorned our 36' coach in to site 38 with a lot of maneuvering. The site behind us was filled immediately. This site had no utilities but suited our needs nicely. Basics: Roads paved easy to get around on. Sites some sites have power most do not. All sites are 1st come and the host are very specific about the site being physically empty prior to claiming another site with or without power. Water spigots are scattered around the park with one potable water fill site near the entrance. I never found out if there was or where the dump station was located. Verizon phone and Mifi worked well. Generator hrs 6am-10pm. This campground has a lot of great sites with and without power. Some of the ones with power can fit the largest coaches with a big trailer. Others are suitable for a car and tent pad. If you get there early and you are lucky you may snag an electric site. Otherwise grab the 1st site that will work because it might not be there next time around. Noise: You can hear the highway but traffic is way down at night. You are also on the main approach to the airport. They fly Smoke Jumpers and Air Tankers (Jets) out of this airport and air traffic can get a bit much during fire season. If we're in the area again we'd stay here. We camped at Baker's Hole Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

It's a great place to stage out of. We and most other campers kept extending a day or six so we could keep going back to Yellowstone. Close to the geyser basins. Expect critter jams while driving, some times it seems folks will stop in the middle of traffic to take a picture of a chipmunk. Also expect lots of crowds even after Labor Day.

Rim Station RV Park, Pinedale, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Basics: Located about half way between Pinedale and Jackson. They have 12 sites. Roads and sites are gravel with bomb proof hook ups of WES. No washers, washroom, or showers and the roads are easy to get around on. There is a little store there that has some stuff but not a lot. The folks running it are very nice and helpful. There were some longer term folks staying in a couple of sites but everything was neat. I thought this would be closer access to the Winds but you have a lot of driving to do to get up into them or Pinedale (25 + mi. away). There is road noise but the it isn't that busy at night. They had wifi but my Verizon mifi worked faster than they're system. No picnic table, fire ring or patio. This place had available space over the Labor Day week end. The owner told me that they close around 10/8 but if someone wanted to work out staying longer they might be able to accommodate them. This is a pleasant place to stay but you'll end up doing a lot of driving to and from places you might want to see, 50-80 mi./day round trip for a trip up into the Winds or Pinedale. We'd stay here again but just for an overnight on the way to or from Jackson during the season. We camped at Rim Station RV Park in a Motorhome.

Twin Pines RV Park, Lander, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Roads: Gravel and turns are a bit tight and you might have to do a lap or two to get the right angle to get into your site. Site was on the end of the back row away from the office, it was a bit narrow and just long enough for the toad and coach. Road noise is an issue during the day but not so much at night. Showers: Only 1 men and 1 women showers. Lines were an issue. The show was large and handicapped accessible with good hot water and low to medium pressure. Bathroom and showers were spotless. Washer and drier were $7/ load. We stayed here due to a storm that was brewing where we wanted to go. This place doesn't have much to offer except location. We might stay here again but I'd check out the other places in town before we stayed again. We camped at Twin Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

If you look at the map of of Colorado and Western Nebraska/ Kansas you'll see a distinct lack of population centers (towns) and even fewer RV CG's. So we were delighted to find this place. Over all impression: neat, well laid out, quiet, and well cared for. Roads: gravel and easy to get around on. Site: gravel and flat with room for the car but we had to disconnect the toad to park it. Power 20,30,50 amp with sewer. Bathroom and showers were clean. The shower had good pressure, plenty of hot water and was roomy. Their WIFI was fast and free, Verizon phone and Mifi worked well too. The staff was friendly and helpful. They are located close to town and have several restaurants and all that beautiful downtown Wray has to offer. We'd stay here again if we're in the area.
