Newton KOA , Newton, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is probably one of the nicest KOAs we have stayed at. Easy access from I-80 and your hosts are very nice people. The sites are typical of a KOA close but the grounds are very nice grass cut and everything around looks very nice and taken care of. Sites are level and have some shade. The restrooms and showers are very clean and modern, the shower head is the best I've ever used at a shower in any campground. The services are excellent, WiFi very good, they have cable but we choose to do OTA channels and got 36 of them. Cell ATT very good. Sorry to say we were just over night guess leaving in the morning. We will return..... We camped at Newton KOA in a Motorhome.

Cabela's RV Park & Campground, Sidney, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great overnight stopping spot. Our site was level and full hookup with easy access to I80. The showers, restrooms and laundry were clean and the laundry was $1 for wash and $1 dry. Cell service ATT was great along with their WiFi which was excellent. Cable tv has numerous channels. This is a first come first serve campground so get here early to get a spot. You can't beat the price. There is a Walmart close by as well as a lot of restaurants. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Cabela's RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Get your site setup and then go to the main store to pay or use cash or check to pay at the self service at the campground. A lot of campgrounds ought to look at how Cabela's doesn't overcharge the customer for the services they offer.

Volcano Country Camping and RV, Mineral, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Our back-in site was level and shady, all sites that I saw are back-in but we had no problems with our 36' MH. Check-in is at the country store just before the park if going East on rt 36. Full hookup with 30 amp and all services worked OK. We had a decent ATT cell signal and used our hotspots. There is no WiFi, no cable or OTA TV channels. The park sits back off the main road so there is no road noise. We didn't need to use our A/C, but if you do, the campground wants to charge $2 a day extra. Not a good idea in my opinion since I have already paid the site fee. The shower and toilet, yes just one each for each gender for 35 sites, could get to be a long line if this park is busy. Lucky for us we were the only campers besides one other gentlemen. They were clean but could use some updating. The shower walls show a lot of rust stain from the hard water but I have seen worse and there was plenty of hot water. Very close to Lassen Volcanic NP. Their store has everything you need and their restaurant has some great food with generous portions, but a little pricey. We would stay here again if nothing else was available in the National Park. For the price it was OK for our 2 day stay....the park just needs some TLC. Make sure your MH and/or vehicles are full of gas before arriving. The closet gas station is 25 miles in Chester.

Elk Country RV Resort & Campground, Trinidad, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We changed our mind once getting here and took a meadow site instead of a wooded site...all of these sites are level and have full hookups.....checkin was very good...our services worked great, they do have well water so you may want to bring your own bottles of water for drinking although we didn't have any problems with the water....the campground was nearly empty so the spaces between sites were nice but with a full campground you will be somewhat close but tolerable....cell service ATT was ok and their WiFi was good also...they have WiFi plans that will cost you if you like to stream movies etc....we did not get any ota channels but that was ok with us....the restrooms and showers were clean with plenty of hot water, we did not use the laundry...we saw the elk in the field but they did not come into the campground the 2 days we were here, but watch your step they have been here at one time or another....this is a quiet place just off hwy 101 it's a great location to visit Redwood NP and other sites in the area....we would stay here again if in the area.....

Osprey Point RV Resort, Lakeside, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Our pull thru site was very level as where all sites, not a lot of shade...there are what seems to be a lot of permanent or seasonal campers here but I must admit that as full as the park was it was one of the quietest parks we have ever been to.....our services worked great, good cell ATT signal and their WiFi was very good considering the large number of campers here....the sites are pretty close and not a lot of privacy but they have everything you need right there in the campground including a restaurant....the restrooms and showers were clean and a lot of hot water....checkin was very smooth with nice people at the desk...when the park is full like it was a big rig could have a problem with a back in site but I have seen worse so it is doable....this is a nice stop for a day or two but not as a destination site in my opinion....we would stay here again if in the area.....

Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park with level sites that are somewhat close, some have shade and others are full sun, full hookups, cable or ota channels, very good WiFi, good ATT cell signal and a nice pool...Check in was very nice and the showers are very clean as well as the park itself...the laundry is excellent as u can use your debit card to pay for the $2 washer or $2 45 min dryer no hassle with quarters and have your cell phone text you when the washer or dryer is done...this is a very large RV Park that is big rig friendly and has 3 different levels...you can also wash your RV for $5, a nice thing if your take the time like we did....a lot of shopping, restaurants near by, close to I84 and a nice drive to the Falls or Mt Hood...sometimes a park like this is nice relief from the dirt and grass of a state park with no cable or WiFi....we would stay here again if in the area....

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00

First off the park is big rig friendly and all the sites are large and level with NO shade with easy access off hwy 97....good cell signal, used our hotspots, did not get their cable tv box for a $50 deposit since we were there one night, did get 1 ota channel though....did not use the $5 a hour laundry with a $20 deposit, wasn't sure what that was all about, nor did I take a $2(toonie) 4 minute shower either, this place was not getting any more of my money other than my site charge.....started in site 10 but the electric had such a voltage drop that nothing would run correctly in the mh....talked to fella in office and he said that I was running too many things, mind you it was 30 amps but I know when I'm running too much amperage versus a voltage drop....the fella let me change to spot 3, the voltage was better but it still was having a drop now and then.....we made it thru the night and I will never return to this campground nor would I recommend it to anyone, stay somewhere else.

Our pull thru full hookup site was level and long enough for our 36' mh with toad...if you want peace and quiet with no cell, WiFi or tv this is the place for you....you can go to the boat launch down the road and pick up a Canadian cell signal for calls, emails etc...no ota tv channels but open space for satellite dish.....showers, restrooms were clean with a lot of hot water but they do charge 3 loonies for 8 minute shower....used laundry, machines showing their age but they get the job done, $2 wash $2 for 45 min dry...The host is great and is always busy with his many jobs....saw one bear at the garbage dump, also a lot of spawning salmon at the creek and some otters and beavers and a lot of eagles....make sure you have your supplies or whatever before you get here, there isn't much in Hyder but Stewart does have some small restaurants and a decent grocery store with anything you may need, there is a gas station also in Stewart but you have to go thru customs each time u go into Stewart...make sure you eat at the Bus in Hyder she has the freshest halibut you could ever eat, but don't be in a hurry she does it all and it takes time....we would stay again if in the area...very interesting town to say the least, a lot of glaciers to see and it's just the peace and quiet that is all around you that is nice.....ohhh it looked like they supplied the firewood all the campsites had firewood at the fire rings which was a nice thing.....
