Harris Beach State Park, Brookings, Oregon

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

One of our favorite state parks on the Oregon Coast. Since our last stay here, they have done major tree trimming and brush removal which allows for more views of the ocean. This is a tremendous improvement for the overall character of the park. I would have given a 10 rating if there were sewer hook ups. We camped at Harris Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Lakeshore RV Park, Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here with the Passport America rate. Mostly long term residents but sites are very well maintained. Short term sites are very long on gravel but quite close together with only room to walk between your adjacent neighbor. Full hookups with only 30amp power. A very good deal when traveling the Oregon Coast during the summer months when most parks are difficult to find a spot. The person who checked us in was very helpful and informative. We camped at Lakeshore RV Park in a Motorhome.

Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park, Florence, Oregon

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

This is an Oregon State Park and we visited during the busy summer months when getting a spot to camp without a reservation is nearly impossible on the Oregon Coast. This park is first come-first serve. Since we planned our trip to the beach at the last minute, we selected this park as our best opportunity to get a spot and we found a gem, site A-29. With our 41 foot MH, the site was more than long enough and all of the utilities were easily accessible and in excellent condition. The campground is heavily canopied with trees so no satellite and the Verizon signal was not available. You can get cell service across the highway in the day use area. We will probably return to this park frequently due to the no reservation system at this location. We camped at Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Neskowin Creek RV Resort, Neskowin, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $2.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a member park and has affiliation with other discount programs, therefore the rate we paid reflects our 50amp fee. Spaces are larger with the utilities reasonably located and a fire pit. Sites are gravel with grass between spaces. Interior roads are gravel and dusty. 7mph speed limit which seems to be honored by guests but not by the large lawn mower which seems to hit 20-25mph down the roads creating a real dust situation. So our MH needed to be washed after leaving this park. We camped at Neskowin Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Timber Valley - Escapees Park, Sutherlin, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

The rate reflects the discounted weekly rate. One of the friendliest Escapee Parks we have encountered, everyone waves and greets you as you pass on the streets. Very large oversized spaces with a concrete pad next to your RV. Any activities in the club house are open to all visitors with a warm welcome. We camped at Timber Valley - Escapees Park in a Motorhome.

Buckhorn Lake Resort, Kerrville, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

The rate reflects the monthly rate. We had made reservations for the month of December and before we finished setting up, we added a second month. This is probably one of the nicest and finest RV resorts we have found in our 5 years of fulltiming. Sites are large and well laid out for easy hookups. The facility is extremely well maintained and clean. Roads are paved and parking pads are level concrete with a generous patio space for the provided picnic table. Water pressure is high, so use a regulator. All of the utilities are easily accessible and in excellent condition. We have no negative comments about Buckhorn Lake. We camped at Buckhorn Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

4 Aces RV Park, Kinsley, Kansas

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects Passport America. The manager was delightful and informative, he didn't ask for any paperwork, just pay and go to your site. Never had that happen before, but it makes good sense. Large pull through sites concrete and level. 50 amps, water and sewer. Don't know about cable as we use our satellite dish. Lots of permanent residents but very well maintained. Great little park. We camped at 4 Aces RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park has good hookups but the sites are overgrown with weeds with stickers and burrs. There are tables at each site on imitation turf which is a nice touch. Very level and would definitely use again for an overnighter. We camped at Elks Lodge 969 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Quiet Creek RV Resort, Fredericksburg, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This park just opened about 3 months ago according to the person at check in. Sites closer to the highway have more road noise, we were at the far end away from the road so it was no issue to us. Layout was obviously done by someone who doesn't use an RV. In some sites, we saw RVs with 3 extensions on the sewer hose in order to reach the sewer connection. Many sites had a drainage ditch at both ends of the site for water runoff, in many instances so severe it made the worst speed bumps look tame in comparison. Our site did not have them and was easy in and out with a 41' motorhome with car in tow. There was a very small concrete pad oddly placed. Our entry door is at the front of our coach and the concrete pad was at the rear of the RV and directly adjacent to the neighbors sewer connection. We were here for the week of Thanksgiving and most sites were open. Felt the price was definitely on the high side. We camped at Quiet Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Sintich RV & Trailer Park, Prince George, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $36.00

This is an RV park affiliated with a manufactured home community. Everything is well maintained, the RV portion has gravel roads and spaces with full hookups and up to 50 amp power available. Easy to maneuver in our 41' motorhome. Quiet even though adjacent to Highway 97 on south edge of Prince George. Wifi works well. We camped at Sintich RV & Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

Reel In Motel and RV Park, Terrace, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Back-in sites behind the motel. Check in was at a motel a block away, kind of a nuisance. Sewer hookup and fresh water connection were adjacent to one another. I bleached and did my best to sanitize the fresh water connection before connecting. This is a very poor situation. We camped at Reel In Motel and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Camp Run A Muck, Hyder, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This community is on hard times and the park reflects the economic reality of the area. What brings people to this community is the bear viewing platform provided by the U.S. Forest Service nearby. The park is basically a large gravel lot with standing water when it rains, which it did in abundance during our 3 day stay. The 30amp power was weak and our built-in surge protector kept kicking the off to our motorhome. Unfortunately, we had to use propane for heat and water heating to compensate. Mentioned the problem to the manager who didn't seem to want to deal with the problem. We camped at Camp Run A Muck in a Motorhome.

Glacier View RV Park, Smithers, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We were initially planning to stay just overnight, but stayed for 3 nights because the park was so nice and well maintained. Owners live on site and are on task all day. The only downside was 30amp power only, some large potholes upon entering the park and little highway noise. Not objectionable at all. We felt this was an outstanding deal. We camped at Glacier View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Meziadin Provincial Park, Meziadin Junction, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the most beautiful Provincial Park we have ever stayed in Canada. The setting is wonderful and the current park operators have manicured, cleaned and set out flowers that make this a destination. Our site was on gravel on the edge of the lake and we had 30amp power. Not all sites have power, but some are available. We had no problems maneuvering our 41 foot motorhome. A tremendous value. We camped at Meziadin Provincial Park in a Motorhome.
