This is a hard campground to review because it is so big and the sites so different depending upon where you are located. Most sites are forested and shady, although they have some tent sites on the beach or on a bluff which would get more sun. The same goes for privacy - some sites have very little and some have more where you can't see your neighbors. They charge extra for showers, which I find annoying in a private campground where you are already paying more for than a public campground. The staff in the front office was always helpful and friendly despite being non-stop busy, as you can imaging in a 200 plus site campground. This is a very family oriented place with lots of kids, especially in the summer there were big groups around. Quiet time isn't until 11PM, which is a bit later than I prefer, especially when the sites are so close together and voices/noise carry easily. Interior roads were narrow and should be one-way or better delineated for traffic flow as there is a lot of speeding, despite the signs warning of "kids everywhere - slow down." Sites mostly level. WiFi OK, but don't expect to download or stream, they will bounce you to dial up speed, even though you are paying extra for WiFi in the first place.

This was our first time at an Escapees Park and we were totally impressed - what a well-run place. From the super-clean restrooms, the beautiful landscaping, the sign-up procedures to use the laundry (and "solar dryers"), the clubhouse, etc., it showed a lot of pride of ownership. We stayed in the Guest hook-up spots which were level, with plenty of spacing between the rigs for chairs, awnings, without being right on top of your neighbor. The only park WiFi is at the Clubhouse, so bring your own hot spot if you want to get on the internet from your rig.

This is a nice RV park, located in an open meadow setting south of town. The Elks Lodge itself is located in the town of Tillamook. There is nice spacing between sites and they were fairly level. The hosts have local info & provide you with drink tickets for the Lodge, which is a nice touch. The place was pretty busy on a Sunday night, so be sure to call ahead, esp. if you want one of the 11 pull-though sites. My only complaint was the bathroom building - it is pretty basic, like something you find in a state park (cinder block walls and concrete floors) and there were no showers. With all the open space around this park, it needs an equally nice and inviting restroom with shower. Quiet at night with little/no road noise.

There are 10 water/electric sites available in the parking lot of the lodge, just a block or so off the main drag. The sites were REALLY close together, as in all you can see is the side of your neighbor's rig when you are parked. A little too close for me, but for a night it was OK. The lot is gravel and nothing special - no plants or trees for shade/privacy. Also, it backs up to a HUGE electric substation-type place, so if you worry about that sort of thing, that's a factor to consider. Quiet at night, no road noise from the highway.

Wow - this is a really spectacular location right at the confluence of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. It is a very popular place and when we arrived without reservations around 10:30AM on a Monday, we were lucky to get 1 of 2 spaces left. No walk-ins apparently. The CG is arranged in loops of 10 sites each, which is very nice and intimate instead of the long rows of sites that is usual in most state parks. The sites were nice and long, no problem backing in with our 30ft MH and room for a tow in front. There is lots of privacy in the back and not so much between sites. Bathrooms were clean and showers were coin operated.

We were in a pull-out that was very tight and right next to the road. All of the sites in the hook-up section felt very crowded and I was worried someone would clip our tow car making the turn around the loop. I would have preferred to get a non-hook up site which seemed spaced a little further apart, but the trees at the entrances to each site were really close together and those sites weren't angled. Bottom line, for a 30ft MH with tow car, we were a little limited. The place was packed mid-week in July as they had a big group of 33 taking up most of the hook up spots. Perhaps a group site would be nice for them, not sure if they have them. Otherwise, the park was nice, clean and had very friendly hosts.

This is one of the nicest Elks Lodge RV facilities we have seen. Unlike most Elks, where you stay in a parking spot behind a lodge in town, this is actually an RV park for Elks members only, about 5 miles north of the Town of Florence. It has back-in and pull-through sites, plenty of shade and room between sites. There are plantings between sites to provide privacy. The showers & restroom are spotless and the grounds are well maintained. The staff is helpful and pleasant. The sites have only water & electric hookups, but there are 2 convenient dump stations on the grounds.

We just love this park. It is our second visit in 3 years. It is located on a beautiful stretch of river, with most sites having a riverfront view. Most are pull-throughs, with some back in sites. The showers/restrooms are spotless. There is a nice pavilion with tables for anyone to use. They also have a soft-serve ice cream machine for guests - very nice touch. It is quiet and located away from the highway. The only negative is the extremely slow WiFi - it was either so slow or someone was using up all the broadband - we simply couldn't stay connected and just gave up. Otherwise, no complaints at all. Registration was easy & Host was great. landscaping and site maintenance impeccable.

This is a great little park with easy access off of Hwy 395. It was quiet, small, adult-oriented and the restrooms were spotless. The sites were well-maintained and nicely spaced. No leveling required. We were only passing through and just stayed the night, but if there was something to see in the area, I would not hesitate to use the RV park as a base for exploring for a couple of days. I would not hesitate to come back again and will probably stay here on our return trip.

This is a pretty basic park that is overpriced for what you get - $30 for a site on dirt and $2.00 extra for showers in bathrooms that need serious updating. It's basically one step up from boon docking with W/E (no sewer or dump that we could see). It is quiet as it is a little way off of Hwy 395 and it does have lots of shade trees, which can really make a difference in this part of the Sierras in the summer. Sites are all back-ins and needed just a little leveling. Overall, it is a satisfactory place for an overnight stop that is quiet & shady. I understand it is full of families on the weekend as it is located in a regional park area, but we had no problem getting a spot during the week without reservations in July.

This is a very nice and quiet senior/adult RV park. It is family run and there is great pride of ownership. The sites and facilities are spotless. The only negative is that it is TOO popular. We stayed here twice in June on our way east and west and both times tried to extend our stay, but no luck. It is sold out almost every night (with good reason) so you should have reservations it seems, so plan ahead. There is some road noise, so try to get a spot in the back if you want more quiet.

This is an older park and some sites are pretty close together. It is in a great location by the Conejos River and most campers were there for the fishing, to relax and for family get-togethers. Everyone was very friendly and it was really quiet at night. In early June the mosquitos were vicious, however, so beware when sitting outside, especially in the evenings. The showers and bathrooms were clean and had lots of hot water. There is a nice store in the office with ice cream and fishing gear. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We had a very bad experience at Monte Bello. This park is pretty basic and we were prepared for that from the previous reviews. It is located on top of a mesa with no trees, no shade, lots of dust and VERY windy. Most afternoons our RV was rocking back and forth like being on a boat. There is also road noise as it is located right next to a highway with lots of truck traffic. The sites are close and have no privacy. Unfortunately for us, the on-site host did nothing about the site occupant next to us who got up at 6:00AM and decided to do repair work on his truck engine along with lots of slamming doors, revving engines, driving in and out to test his repair work, etc. This noise and repair job continued for over 3 hours. When we complained to the on-site host, whose site is situated directly behind the offending repairman, he was rude asked why we didn't complain to him at 6:00AM and used language that is not fit to print. Needless to say, we will not be returning here - ever. The positives are the clean restrooms and laundry.

This is a good spot for an overnight stop off of I-40 or as a base to visit Acoma Pueblo. The spots were all nice level pull-throughs. The showers were very clean. There was nice spacing between the sites, but no privacy because it is a desert campground with small bushes & no trees for shade. Our only problem/complaint is that there is no one staying on-site overnight or a closed gate to prevent people from sneaking in late at night and making lots of noise. We had this happen to us our first night and hoped that security would come by and take care of it, but they didn't and we had to ask the people to keep it down around midnight. There is a great package deal for RVers who want to visit the Acoma Pueblo. The food at the Cultural Center was great, but the breakfast buffet at the Casino was disappointing. Both are included in the package.

We were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful location of this park. It is surrounded by hills with a great view of the valley. We don't golf but stayed an extra night to enjoy the peace and quiet - no road noise as it is a mile off the highway. The sites are spacious with grass strips dividing them. The bathrooms are cleam with lots of hot water. We would stay here again.
