Gilgal Oasis RV Park, Sequim, Washington

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

Beautifully landscaped small park. Spaces are hard to get into for big rigs but the staff helps guide you and it is doable without scratching your coach. Cars park in front of the RVs parallel to the road and sometimes you may have to get people to move their car to get in our out of your space but the staff helps with that. Good WiFi, satellite and Verizon cell phone and good cable. Nicely manicured lawn between sites. Sewer connections are a bit farther away than normal (more than 20 feet) and you may need an extension. We camped at Gilgal Oasis RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sea Perch RV Resort, Yachats, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $98.00
Overall Rating:      

A great park right on the ocean. The beach is just 15 feet from the Ocean front sites (4--9). There are other sites back from the ocean. For the ocean front sites you pull in and the ocean is right in front of your front window. The sound of the surf and the view can't be beat, though those sites are a bit expensive. The sites and interior roads are paved. Each site has a picnic table and patio. Good separation from neighbors. Good satellite reception. Basic cable. Can't remember if we had cell service but good wi-fi. There are a number of scenic sites close by and the little village of Yachats (7 miles away) has restaurants and small grocery stores. The bigger city of Newport is about 30 miles north. This is our second visit. On our first, we saw whales swimming north just offshore. We camped at Sea Perch RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Monroe Creek Campground & RV Park, Weiser, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Long pull-through but needed to disconnect the car to get into the narrow gravel site because of sharp turn and trees on access road. Low branches on trees on the access to the site. Not a lot of transient traffic. Some long term rentals. Stayed here because we were taking a boat trip through Hell's Canyon and this was the closest park that looked like it was accessible for a big rig (though the trip departure point at the Hells Canyon Dam was 90 miles away). Other reviewers noted that the water was high in sulfur content so it was advisable to bring a full tank of water. WiFi was OK. Satellite reception was fine. We did have Verizon data service. Cable had the basic channels. Park had nice grass between sites but they were close together. We camped at Monroe Creek Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hells Canyon Adventures at the Hells Canyon Dam offers 6 hour and 2 hour jet boat rides through the deepest parts of the canyon. Very enjoyable trip. They also do raft trips and fishing excursions. Book in advance. And leave plenty of time to negotiate twisting narrow mountain roads to get there and remember they are on Pacific time while the park is on Mountain time.

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Conveniently located about a mile from I-84. No noise from the highway. Very quiet. Immaculately kept grounds. Smooth, level concrete pad with adjoining concrete patio and picnic table and benches (fiberglass). Groomed grass between lots. Some small trees on each lot but they do not hinder parking the coach or putting out slides or awnings. Good satellite reception. Good cable. Spotty over the air TV but if you've got the other two, you don't need it. Good free WiFi. Good Verizon service. Helpful staff. Guided to our lot. The restrooms and showers are the cleanest I've ever seen (they even provide bath mats). They're so clean, you're almost afraid to use them! Nice salt water pool. Nice dog run and children's play area. One of the top RV parks in the country for an overnight or longer stay. We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Motorhome.

At the Route 66 casino about 15 miles west of Albuqurque. Paved roads and pads. Big Rig friendly. Shuttle to the casino and back though we were just there overnight and didn't go. Pool.

Wahweap RV and Campground, Page, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Big Campground and nice location. Views of a small portion of Lake Powell. Paved roads and sites. Big Rig friendly. Satellite access. No over the air TV and no cable. WIFI is very slow. Verizon phone service is ok, but wifi is spotty depending on where you are. Opposing sites, in other words, coaches are right next to each other and basically share a site with the front of one parked next to the rear of the other. Not the best arrangement for privacy. And depending on the site, awnings may not be able to be extended all the way. Full service hookups. We camped at Wahweap RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tour the antelope slot canyons with a Navajo guide (several tour companies available.) Fantastic beauty. You can two do two separate tours, the upper and lower canyons. They are similar. If you do just one, I would do the upper canyon. Also, the Lake Powell Boat tours are worth it. The Wahweap Lodge company offers several tours. The 2 1/2 hour Canyon Tour goes into bothgNavajo and Antelope Canyon (not the same canyon at the above walking tours).

Mustang Run RV Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

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

An excellent park. The negatives I will list are not negatives to me but some readers might find them to be. Small trees only (park is only 3 years old), slow wi-fi, and right next to I-40 (but not that much road noise). Positives include paved pads and roads (very level), very good water pressure, and open skies for satellite. Most of the sites are long pull thrus. This is also the only RV park that I have been to that has underground storm shelters (in case there are tornado warnings which are prevalent in the spring in Oklahoma). They are just feet from the RV pads and if you are worried about such things, you can go there when the sirens sound. We camped at Mustang Run RV Park in a Motorhome.

New York City North / Newburgh KOA, Plattekill, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

Some sites are satellite accessible. Good electric. Adequate water pressure. Internet speed varied between very good and fair. They charge an extra resort fee per night whether you use the facilities here or not. Fairly convenient to all the sites along the Hudson (West Point, Hyde Park, etc.) as well as to the train to Manhattan. There is lots to see in the area and being a KOA, the park itself tries to be a destination in itself with a pool and lots of activities for kids. They also provide a tour to New York once a week. It gets smoky at night because almost everyone builds a fire, even if its 85 degrees outside. Its about 11 miles from all the interstates. Sites are dirt with dirt roads but are wide. We have stayed here twice and would stay again. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Lake George Escape Camping Resort, Lake George, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $62.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is not big rig friendly. It appears trees are not trimmed above 10 feet. Interior roads are twisty, dirt, and full of potholes . Difficult to get a big rig in and out of the camping sites. They said our site was satellite accessible. It was not. I doubt if any are. The place is heavily treed. There was cable. No internet except at the main office area (though they say they are building connections to serve the camping spots) Convenient to Lake Place and Ft. Ticonderoga (both about 60 miles away) and to the village of Lake George (which isn't worth visiting unless you want to go the beach or the amusement park). We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow. A great campground on the quiet side of Acadia National Park. Opened in September 2015, the campground is in great shape. The asphalt interior roads are without a blemish or pothole...there are sites for everyone, even big rigs like ours. Many sites exceed 60 feet in length. You actually have 100 amps of power (good for rigs that have only 30 amp service..you can plug in an extension cord and get another 20 amps if you need it) Many sites have good satellite reception though some are blocked by trees...Local tv from Bangor gives you a couple of stations and the local news. There are no showers in this campground..and no sewers...but there is a dump station. We camped at Schoodic Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the ferry from Winter Harbor to Bar Harbor (passenger and bike only) and then ride the free park service bus systems to avoid driving in overcrowded Bar Harbor. And, have lunch at the Jordan Pond restaurant and gorge yourself on popovers, and take a carriage ride through the dense forest on the quiet carriage roads either before or after lunch.

Rockwood Park, Saint John, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Rockwood Park itself is a very pretty park, however, the campground is a gravel parking lot. It is conveniently located close to downtown St. John. Getting into the park is challenging with several tight turns onto very narrow roadways once you leave Trans Canada Highway 1. There are also branches from a weeping willow that extend out into the lane where coaches must park when checking in. Only 30 amp power is available. Back in sites are very wide, but short so you must park your car next to your coach. Not all sites have sewer and you may have to wait until you arrive to find out if you will have a sewer connection. The sewers are located at the very rear of the site and you will need at least 25 feet or more of sewer hose to connect. A travel companion did not have enough hose to reach his connection. We needed two sections. Water pressure varies but tends to be low most of the time. Internet service is excellent and Verizon works fine if you have the International Plan. Satellite reception (Direct TV) is excellent (no trees in the gravel parking lot), and two local TV channels can be picked up (no cable.) We did not use the restrooms and showers but I did check them out and they were clean but not fancy. Plastic shower curtains. Despite the negatives, the park is adequate and if you are here to sightsee you won't be spending much time in the park anyway. We would stay here again because of its convenient location. We camped at Rockwood Park in a Motorhome.

Be sure to see the reversing falls at low tide and high tide. The contrast is amazing. And if you take a day trip to St. Andrews (one hour) be sure to see Minister's Island where Canadian National Railway president William Van Horne built a 50 room "summer" home in 1890 which is open to the public. You can only reach the island for a few hours either side of low tide because you drive on the ocean floor to get there.

Ponderosa Pines Family Campground, Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Only a mile from Hopewell Rocks. Some sites have a view of the Bay of Fundy (we had one) as well as a view of the pond with Canadian Geese. Good voltage on 50 amp service. Water pressure varied from low to good. Dusty gravel interior roads. They have a swimming pool but we didn't use it. Make reservations in advance if you want 50 amp and have a big rig. They are hard to come by when the caravans come in but when there are no caravans, there appears to be plenty of space. Open for Direct TV. Most channels come in in high def. Two local stations available. No cable. Siote was not very level and had to move the coach twice to find a spot where I could put the jacks down without lifting the wheels on the passenger side off the ground, but we eventually were able to level the coach. Very acceptable for a few nights. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Marco Polo Land Campground, Cavendish, Prince Edward Island

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

A huge campground with many Canadians and caravans. Make reservations early, particularly if you want 50 amp service. Centrally located on the island. Paved interior roads and grass sites (very thick and not worn). Site we had was very wide and was a back in. Open skies for Direct TV but because of the northerly location some channels are only available in standard definition. A couple of location channels out of Charlottetown. Verizon with international plan worked well. 30 minutes from Charlottetown and Summerside. If you are driving a big motorhome, put down blocks under your jacks because the ground can be soft after rains (but not muddy) and you will sink in. Great water pressure. Good 50 amp service. Even though there are many sites, you don't feel crowded because of the layout. Lots of kids here on summer vacation so drive slowly through the park. We would stay here again. We camped at Marco Polo Land Campground in a Motorhome.

Bras D'Or Lakes Campground, Baddeck, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Gravel interior roads, grass sites. Water pressure was fine. Low voltage meant you had to monitor and manage your power use. (You don't want to run air conditioners if the voltage is much below 110 volts and there were times that one leg was low but the other was adequate.) Good central location on Cape Breton from which to visit the sites on day trips. No cable. A couple of location stations. DirecTV accessible though because the park is so far north, some channels only came in with standard definition. We would stay again. We camped at Bras D'Or Lakes Campground in a Motorhome.
