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

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Even though we weren't boating as many people do here, we really enjoyed this campground during our first ever two-night stay. We found the the sites to be fairly spacious and the grounds well maintained. The bathrooms and private showers are some of the best we've ever seen. As the Crooked River campground is on a plateau, lake access is via several day use areas 1/2 mile away. We also visited the Deschutes Campground which was also nice - a little more undulating with boulders and trees everywhere but perhaps the sites were smaller overall. Another camper told us that the Deschutes campground (a couple of miles away) can get hotter in the summer evenings as you get less of an evening breeze. There is also a very nice private marina/store near the day use area for boat rental, provisions and ice cream, etc. My only minor gripe is that the dumpsters aren't really within walking distance. We camped at Cove Palisades State Park (Crooked River Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We were in an inside loop site, which was fine, but we thought the best sites were those on the long sides for more space and better views, like E3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 18 and 19 or 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59 although those sites could get a bit breezy. E27-35 outside sites are adjacent to a field that has been plowed, so blowing dust could be an issue.

Nehalem Bay State Park, Nehalem, Oregon

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

While we enjoyed our 5-night stay in Nehalem Bay state Park, we were a bit underwhelmed overall with the campground. We found the sites to be a bit close together (compared to other Oregon State Parks) and the bathrooms weren't updated and very inconvenient for those in the C and D loops, as you have to walk to an adjacent loop. Mostly, we found that beach access was difficult for our special needs son who could never navigate the "path" that goes over a large deep sand berm (hill). We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is very nice campground in Kennewick, WA. Very nice spacing and good facilities. Sites have power only, so fill before you go to your site. Bathrooms are adequate but need updating. We camped at Hood Park - COE in a Travel Trailer.

Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park, Gilroy, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice clean RV park in cental Gilroy adjacent to a large shopping area. Despite being near the highway, it was rather quiet. The sites, however are really crammed together and as with many RV parks these days, filled with permanent residents. Two really disappointing things we noticed was (a) they cleaned the bathrooms for an hour during the prime morning hours, so we could not do our business nor take showers, and (b) had a sign in the bathrooms that said no children under the age of 16 in the bathrooms without a parent.... really, 16? We don't have young children at home, but still felt this policy was bad. No picnic table and no morning sun due to the crammed sites. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Furnace Creek (NPS Campground), Death Valley National Park, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

So Death Valley National Park is over 5,000 square miles in size, yet at this primary campground, sites are crammed together in a generally rather ugly campground. Unfortunately it's probably the best campground for RVs so it is really too bad that the camping experience for us was not favorable. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Valley of Fire State Park, Overton, Nevada

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

I am hesitant about giving this campground a good review because I want it all to myself. It is one of the most beautiful and amazing campgrounds we have ever stayed in, rivaling some incredible national parks... but with hookups. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Almond Tree RV Park, Chico, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed just one night in this clean RV park in Chico. For an RV park, the sites were pretty large with gravel pads and a small section of grass and a picnic table. While not on a freeway, the Esplanade can be somewhat noisy since it is a major street. The one disappointment is the cost. $45 with a Good Sam discount is WAY more than the RV park should be in a smallish town, specially comparing it to really fabulous parks like Seven Feathers in Canyonville, OR. Because of the overly high price, we probably would look for something else in the area next time. We camped at Almond Tree RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Salt Creek Recreation Area, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful camping in the dry camping bluff area, sites in the 50's and 60's. The hookup area sites were rather close together and not very appealing to us, but those on the bluff were secluded and nestled in the trees overlooking the Straits of Juan deFuca. We liked most of the sites in the 50's and some in the 60's which were more protected from the winds. Bring your generator as there isn't adequate sun for solar. We camped at Salt Creek Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Basic for a WA state park. Conveniently off the highway and quiet. Down side is crackling high tension power lines running across the back. OK for a night or two. We camped at Brooks Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Eagle Lake Recreation Area, Merrill Lake Campground, Susanville, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice campground on Eagle Lake. We stayed in a non-hookup site nearer the water, but it looked as though most had power/water. The sites are huge. What really was bizarre is that the restrooms did not have showers - bizarre. The beach was nice, but no formal trails to the beach. The water is very shallow so fishing without a boat isn't really feasible. The dump is across the street. We camped at Eagle Lake Recreation Area, Merrill Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Peninsula Campground & Boating Resort, Grass Valley, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is very quiet ...that's because it's a zillion miles down a squirrelly road. The pluses is that the sites are huge and wooded, and there is a nice lake nearby. Despite expectations, most of the sites are not lake front...you pretty much have to drive. No hookups. The good news is that we paid just $17 with PPA. But since this was an overnight for us, next time we'll pick something closer to the road. We camped at Peninsula Campground & Boating Resort in a Travel Trailer.

49er RV Ranch, Columbia, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a very nice campground run by very nice people. Although there weren't very many camp sites for travelers, most of the permanents were up in another place, so they weren't an issue. It is a great campground for visiting Columbia and Jamestown. The bathrooms/showers were adequate, but needing an upgrade. We paid using our PPA membership...their standard rate of $49 is way too much. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

The Viking RV Park, Kingsburg, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an acceptable stopover campground if you pay the club rate of $20. Their $40 standard rate is too much. While near Hwy 99, is turns into white noise, so that's not a problem...the trains on the other side blowing their horn are. One unisex bathroom/pay shower was a disappointment, although spotless. The sites are nice green grass which was nice. We camped at The Viking RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Brown's Millpond Campground, Bishop, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Hmmmm. I don't really believe in grading campgrounds "on a curve". This is an acceptable place to stopover but not an 8 or 10. There are only around 12 hookup site and they are pretty close together. The stream is about 2' wide. There is a millpond down the road. I really wouldn't bother to stay here next time we're traveling down 395. We camped at Brown's Millpond Campground in a Travel Trailer.
