Railroad Park RV Resort, Dunsmuir, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed in this RV park before. It's a nice place with friendly staff. Most of the sites are pull through. Some can be pretty tight. There's a nearby stream that you can hike down to. Mosquitos are prevalent, so factor that into your plans. We camped at Railroad Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Dunsmuir is a nice town nearby. The site has a number of cabooses on the grounds that have been converted into rooms; they can be rented for the night. Also have a restaurant. We didn't eat there but were told it was expensive.

Prineville Reservoir Resort, Prineville, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 4 nights during the eclipse of the sun. Our site was on dirt, near the rest room and with some shade. Our site was also on a mild slope, but we were able to level our rig. Some other sites looked like they were a bit more steep and leveling your rig could be a challenge. It was pretty dusty while we were there. The The beach is very close to most of the sites; great if you bring a boat, jet ski, like to swim, etc. There is a store and a restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch; we didn't eat there. The bathrooms were clean; the showers require tokens; they sell them at the store ($1.00 for 6 minutes). There is a $5.00 dump fee. The campground is 18 miles from Prineville and it takes about 30 minutes to get to the town. Don't confuse this site with the Prineville Reservoir State Park Campground. That site has plenty of full hookups, paved sites, etc. However access to the reservoir is not as convenient, if boating is your thing. We camped at Prineville Reservoir Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park, Ashland, Oregon

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

Very nice RV park. Most sites overlook Immigrant Lake with beautiful views. All sites are asphalt paved and fairly level. Most are an easy back in although a few are pull through. The RV park is adjacent to a water park with water slides, a pool and a beach. The water slides were supposed to be open while we were there, but no one was around and so I can't comment on them. There are trees and some shade, but not much yet; in a few years there should be plenty of shade. It was hot while we were there but in the evening there was a very nice cooling breeze. At times it was almost too breezy and we took our awning down. There is another area in the campground where you can park your RV as well as tent camp, but they have no hookups. On weekends it can be noisy on the Lake during the day with various powerboats, but it was very quiet in the evening and on weekdays it was always very quiet. One drawback of this RV park: they have one very well kept and clean bathroom and shower facility. It is a fair walk if you're in one of the sites located near the entrance. The showers were free, at least while we were there. We would recommend this site if you're planning to be in the Ashland area. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are numerous things to do in Ashland. Of course, there is the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. They do plays throughout the year and a number are not Shakespeare. There are other venues in town that do theatre. Check out the Oregon Cabaret; they do musicals and other plays as well as having a dinner set up. Take a walk in Lithia Park; very beautiful.

Wrights Lake Campground USFS, Pollock Pines, California

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

This is a beautiful campground way off the beaten path. The road to the campground has numerous pot holes and and at points is nearly single lane; be forewarned. Also watch for the signs going in, because they are easy to miss. The sites are fairly level, asphalt and surrounded by tall pines. There is a fair amount of room between campsites and large meadows behind most of the campsites. It was very quiet while we were there. There are no showers; all the bathrooms are fairly clean with pit toilets. There is water from spigots around the campground; we were told that filling your fresh water tank directly from a spigot is forbidden (and if a ranger sees you doing it you can be fined); this may be related to the current California drought. If you arrive with an empty fresh water tank, you can fill up a water container and pour it into your tank but depending on the size of your container, this could take a number of trips and be pretty exhausting (remember a gallon of water weighs 8.3 lbs so a 6 gallon container will weigh nearly 50 lbs.) The lake is very close by and you can launch non-powered water craft at the beach. We didn't do any fishing, but I would assume it is good. There is a trail that goes around the lake; you can hike it in about an hour; if you're adventurous, you could do it on a mountain bike. There were no mosquitoes while we were there but some yellow jacket wasps. One thing that was a surprise: we were camped under some very tall pines and squirrels would drop pine cones on the top of our trailer, often from a considerable height. This was something we had never experienced before; made a loud noise but no damage. There is a visitor information center, but no one was there and there is no camp host. They have a map of the site when you drive in, but no maps that you can take with you (you can download one from the USDA site: http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fsbdev7_018799.pdf) We camped at Wrights Lake Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Olema Campground, Olema, California

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for three nights mid-week; we had partial hookups (water and electric). The site was very spacious, near trees and shade, very quiet. Notably, there were no Mosquitos, a big plus for us. The sites are very easy to back into. The grounds are well kept; the bathrooms clean. There are 2 showers in each bathroom; we didn't use them but they were very clean. Only draw back on the showers: you share the little dressing area; could be an issue for some. Others have commented on the Wi-Fi; we had excellent reception. There are sites near the front of the park with full hook ups; some are fairly spacious, others a bit tight. Also they are closer to the main road(Highway 1) and road noise could be an issue. A few of the sites further in the RV park have full hook ups. There is a lot of area for tent camping. All the sites have a table and fire pit. The park is near the town of Point Reyes Station which has a number of shops, restaurants. Then there is the Point Reyes National Seashore with plenty of hiking trails, the lighthouse, etc. In the past we've stayed at nearby Samuel P. Taylor State Park and while it is a lot less expensive, (a) they have no hook ups(b) it's a bit warmer (c) We were eaten alive by the Mosquitos. I'd definitely stay at Olema Campground, given the choice. We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You could drive down to San Rafael, take the ferry to San Francisco and spend a day in the city. I wouldn't advise driving into San Francisco; it isn't that car friendly. And if you do drive over the Golden Gate Bridge be aware that they no longer have toll booths. If you're from out of state and/or don't have a Fast Trak transponder, they take a picture of your license plate and send you a bill. The toll isn't cheap ($7.25).

Carmel by the River RV Park, Carmel, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 5 nights; overall I'd say it's a good, but not outstanding campground.
Here are the pros:
-about a mile off Carmel Valley Road and close to the towns of Carmel, Monterey, Pacific Grove; takes about 15 minutes to drive into Carmel.
-about 2-3 miles going east on Carmel Valley Road is the Garland Ranch Regional Park with miles of hiking trails and some bike trails; also Carmel Valley Village with a number of wineries, small shops, etc.
-the rv park itself has level, gravel sites with full hook ups
-the wifi service is very good.
-the site was quiet while we were there. (But see below)
-the staff was friendly
-lots of golf courses, including the world famous Pebble Beach ( and the 17 mile drive, which costs $10.00)
-they have a little store as well as a rec room with pool tables, ping pong, fusball, etc.
The cons:
-as others have noted, the sites are on the tight side; some near the Carmel River are a bit wider. Backing in can be a real challenge; the owner helped guide us in and if he's here, he is very helpful. If not, be prepared for some maneuvering.
-the road in is about a mile long and the last 1/2 mile it becomes single lane. They seem to have the situation in control by having the checkout time 12:00 noon and check in after 1:00 PM. If you try to arrive early in the day, conceivably there could be a problem on the one lane road. I'd recommend arriving well after 1:00 PM to avoid this from occurring.
-there is another RV site entrance just as you come in and it can be confusing; this one is to the right and down the hill. If you go left and up the hill, you're on the wrong road.
-this is Carmel, and this is an expensive area. At $80/night ($85 if you use a credit card) this probably the most expensive place we've ever stayed at.
-while we were here most of the people stayed only one night, so there is a steady flow of people coming and going. Some would get going early in the morning , so mornings can be noisy. We camped at Carmel by the River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Scotts Flat Lake Campground, Nevada City, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We camped here twice, the first time in mid-May 2015 and again in mid-July 2015. The first time we stayed in Camp (or gate) 2; the site we stayed in was fairly roomy, level and easy to back into. The second time we stayed in Camp 1 in the "group camp site" ( mainly because we made our reservation late and this was all they had). Many of the sites in this location were not easy to back into and the site we were assigned was very unlevel, so much so I couldn't level the trailer using all the tricks I knew. I went to the office, asked for and got an alternate site which was better. Later we walked around Camp (or gate) 1 and many of the sites were fairly unlevel, so consider this if you decide to stay here. The bathrooms are clean, there is a store in Camp 2 and a lake, which is part of the campsite. We saw lots of people who had brought boats, so if water sports are your thing, consider this site. The site is near the Empire Mines state park, the towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley, so there are plenty of things to do nearby. If you go there, I'd recommend camp 2. We camped at Scotts Flat Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) , Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is located within the Grand Teton National Park and is average. The sites are pull-through, dirt or gravel, and vary from being level to unlevel; there is a fair amount of space between rigs, so you are not on top of one another. All the hookups are conveniently located. The park has many RV sites and while we were there, it was full. Nonetheless it was pretty quiet. You can walk to the store, the restaurant and the Ranger station/visitor center. If you are in one of the high number sites (we were in 100) it can be a fair walk. The bathrooms were OK. The RV park is a short drive to many of the other sights within the Grand Teton NP, so it's good for going on day trips. If you're planning to go to Yellowstone/ Grand Teton with your rig, I'd recommend this over the other RV park within Yellowstone, which is called Fishing Bridge. There the sites are crammed in. And once you are in either Yellowstone or Grand Teton, you can travel between the 2 parks without having to pay a separate entrance fee. We camped at Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Willow Bay Recreation Area, American Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an OK park; we stayed there overnight. In the part we stayed in, the sites were all pull-through, paved, pretty level and surrounded by grass. They also have a picnic table and a fire pit. On some the sewer hookup is not well located. The bathrooms are spartan but clean. The owner of the RV park runs a restaurant and, while we didn't eat there, it looked OK. The park is near the Snake River and there is a hiking/bike path adjacent to the RV park that I think goes along the river. One thing other reviewers may not have mentioned: the park is not too far from a railroad line and trains do run on it at various hours, including at night. If you're a light sleeper, this could be a problem. We camped at Willow Bay Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

New Frontier RV Park, Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This a brand new RV park. The store in the greeting center was not finished when we there. The bathrooms were very clean. There were plenty of pull through sites and back in sites. They've planted trees but it will be years before there will be any shade. One caution: the main building with the bathrooms and showers is quite a distance from some of the sites in the far corner of the RV park. If you camp here , try to get a site near the main building; otherwise you will have a long walk. Of note, the pull through sites don't have picnic tables, whereas the backin sites do. You can drag one over , bit they are heavy. There are no fire pits. The staff was very friendly. It was very windy when we there and cooking and eating outside can be a challenge. We noted that they didn't have garbage cans where we could put our trash when we left, something they need to fix. Also no recycle bins. We camped at New Frontier RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Coachland RV Park, Truckee, California

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice RV park near to Truckee and Lake Tahoe. Not far off Interstate 80, but we didn't hear any excessive road noise. All the sites are pull-through but they are what I'd call "North-South", with 2 rigs per site with one pulled in going north and the other south. This means that there is about 6 to 7 feet (or less)between you and your neighbor, with all the hookups in the area between your rigs. We had no problem but if each rig had big pop outs on the left side, it could be interesting. Sites were all paved and level; on the right side of each site was usually a grassy area with picnic tables. There were plenty of trees and shade. While we were there it was very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. They just added a trailer/bathroom unit parked in the camping area that has 2 toilets and 2 showers. (This in addition to the men's and women's single toilet and shower facility in the main building of the RV park.) This is a little more convenient to use than walking all the way to the main building. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very big RV park. Our site was pretty level. Most are gravel and most are pull through. Spaces a bit tight. WiFi OK. Park is right on the shuttle bus line that goes into Bryce Canyon National Park and would advise using it instead of driving into the Park. Also at RV site is small office for Bryce National Park where you can get tickets for tours, maps, etc. About a quarter of a mile or less from the RV park is a large store with food and a State authorized store where you can buy wine and other spirits Tuesday through Saturday.

Small but decent RV park. Spaces a little close to your neighbor; all sites we're pull through. Friendly owner who runs a little store where she sells her handmade jewelry.

OK campground. Most sites level with gravel and a few with small areas of grass between sites. Lots of trees with variable amounts of shade. Water pressure was low. WiFi was adequate but if a lot of people are using it, it could bog down. About 3 mile drive into town. Should note that they don't have a swimming pool, so don't plan on taking a cool dip on a hot summer day. There is nearby Cave Lake State Park which is beautiful and a nice place to visit and swim. Campground was quiet while we were there. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:      

Good for an overnight stay but not much else. The RV park is a large open, flat gravel area; a few trees and little shade. There are full hook ups and the adjoining restaurant is OK. The bathrooms are strange: there is only one toilet per men's and women's and neither have a door on it. You basically have to lock the entire bathroom, which includes the showers, for privacy. While we were there it was very windy. The staff was helpful and friendly. We were traveling west from the Town of Delta, NV and this the first and only place to get gas for 83 miles. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
