Mount Washington Alpine Lodge, Courtenay, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

I haven't counted how many times we have stayed up here. But coming back this year wasn't the last time for sure. Everything we stated in previous reviews is still true. Camp for free up to three nights and enjoy the views and hiking options Strathcona PP has to offer in this area. We camped at Mount Washington Alpine Lodge in a Truck Camper.

Elk Falls Provincial Park, Campbell River, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the perfect base for a fly fishing trip on Vancouver Island. Expect all campgrounds to be full when the salmons are in. Lots of large sites in this campground. All pretty level and with good privacy. Water sources all over the place. Lots of tent campers here but bigger rigs will find a place as well (we stayed her before with a 51' rig). Except for a few sites on the river the sites are forested but not too dark. Traffic noise from the highway dies down at night. Overall a well laid out and maintained Provincial Park Campground offering good value for money (except 11$ for a second vehicle is outrageous). Dump station in the park, 5$ (coins needed). We'll be back in September (going after some Coho ...) We camped at Elk Falls Provincial Park in a Truck Camper.

Lakeview Park Campsite, Lake Cowichan, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed again and most of the statements of our previous review are still true. Except the washroom are renovated now and the forest trail is closed for unknown reasons. During shoulder season this campground is a hidden gem. During summer holidays the picture might be different. We camped at Lakeview Park Campsite in a Truck Camper.

Pacific Rim National Park, Green Point Campground, Tofino, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is in CAD without NP-fee (free in 2017). This is an extremely popular campground in the Tofino area. We stayed just a few days after the campground opened for the season and it was already packed to the last site. Don't try to come here without a reservation in June to September! Sites are easy to level (if needed at all) but most are pretty dark, right in the woods. If you book an oceanfront site that doesn't mean "view". Only a handful sites actually offer some view. However, the easy access to Long Beach is the treat here. Also the washrooms got an update and are very modern and sparkling clean now. Sites are well spaced and offer very good to excellent privacy. For bigger rigs it's a challenge. This campground is meant for units up to 30'. I saw one 30' trailer parked and I think the driver of the rig is a real artist in backing in! The wood we purchased for a campfire wasn't worth the money. Wet to the point of being useless. This will probably change during the summer season. Dump station on the way out. Expect lineups. We will come back but only in shoulder season. We camped at Pacific Rim National Park, Green Point Campground in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Enjoy the endless stroll on Long Beach. If you head left from Green Point you will need to cross some shallow water after a mile even when the tide is low. Take off your shoes and feel nature even closer. Head right and you can walk for miles even past Incinerator Rock to Schooner Cove (which is beautiful and has it's own access by a one kilometer forest trail from a parking lot on the highway).

Kalaloch Campground (NPS Campground), Olympic National Park, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is after 50% discount for Interagency pass. Campground is right on the bluff with beach access. But the sites are mostly hidden under trees. Rather small sites. And unlevel despite being paved. Shrubbery between sites makes for good privacy. Constant background noise from the ocean surf. But that's natural, so it's not noise.

Probably very busy during the summer season but we will come back for an overnighter when travelling in the area. We camped at Kalaloch Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Fort Stevens State Park, Hammond, Oregon

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

Even in late September this campground was almost booked out. All sites are paved with water/electric, some have even sewer. Dump on the way in/out. Very quiet place but little privacy since the sites are close together. The park stretches a few miles and riding a bike or driving to the different points of interest takes some time. The beach is veeery long. This time it was just an overnighter, but we'll be back to enjoy all the park has to offer. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Truck Camper.

Nehalem Bay State Park, Nehalem, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

A big state park with lots of sites. All sites have water and electric hookups. Dump station on the way in/out. Sites are paved and level. The downside is the lack of privacy since the sites are close together and nothing between them. Our hunt for a beach site turned out to be pointless because all sites are behind the dunes. A short walk through brings you to the beautiful and seemingly endless beach. It was very quiet at night. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Truck Camper.

Webb County Campground, Pacific City, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is for a dry site. Pretty steep for a gravel on grass site without any privacy. But it is just a short walk across the street to the beautiful beach and it's quiet at night. The water from the tap was awful. Plenty of chlorine. Lots of rabbits around.

Next time we'll find some less expensive place to stay in the area. We camped at Webb County Campground in a Truck Camper.

Beverly Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

Large campground nestled in the forest. Right off Highway 101 but very quiet. Paved and level sites with water and electric hookups. Dump station across the check in office. Sites are not too far from each other but the greenery makes for some privacy. The road through the campground is a little narrow especially when you drive through the loops left and right from the main road. We have towed our 34' fifth wheel through and managed. Now with a truck camper it's a breeze. Just take it slow and steady. This was our second stay at Beverly Beach SP but not our last one. We camped at Beverly Beach State Park in a Truck Camper.

Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, Winchester Bay, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Quiet campground, tucked away in the woods just between Highway 101 and the Umpqua River Lighthouse. Rate is for a dry site (paved). Ours was not level and all others looked sloped as well. Enough space between sites and some greenery made for good privacy. Water taps along the road through. Quite a few generators were running outside permitted hours including one on the camphost site. Once those were all shut down it was very quiet. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Truck Camper.

Cape Blanco State Park, Port Orford, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Our second stay here and it won't be the the last one. This park is hard to beat. $22 for a paved and level site with water and power. And hot showers if you don't mind the short walk to the bathhouse. Cape Blanco is five miles off the highway just a stroll away from the ocean shore and the lighthouse. Don't expect any ocean views though, the sites are all under trees, only a few are somewhat open. However, all sites offer excellent privacy and it's so quiet out here. Hiking trails and beach walks wait for you. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Truck Camper.

Mazama Village (NPS Campground), Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We were surprised to find such a nice State like park at a hot spot like Crater Lake. Rate is for a dry site. We found the sites to be well spaced, thus offering good privacy. Some are sunny but most are at least partially shaded. Some are paved, ours was dirt but level. Water taps everywhere. Very quiet location. Perfect spot to go on the circle drive around magnificent Crater Lake. We will stay here again on our next visit. We camped at Mazama Village (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

La Pine State Park, La Pine, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is for a level paved site with water and electric hookup. Dump station on the way out. We stayed in the north loop which has a very bumpy road through. Take it slow. We were lucky to grab the second last available site. Mid-September and the park was full! The sites are a little to close together for our liking - privacy is limited. It would be very quiet but inconsiderate neighbors and their yappy lap dogs can ruin your camping experience. We will not come back. Just tired of those crowded places where every dog owner believes to own the place. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Truck Camper.

Oxbow Regional Park, Gresham, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is tucked away in the woods. Quite a drive to get here with the last mile being very steep downhill. Then it is another three miles from the entrance to the camping area. Rate is actually 22$ but the mandatory 5$ entry fee makes it 27$ for dry camping. The sites are on the small side on dirt and pea gravel. Mostly unlevel too. Privacy is ok with reasonable spacing between sites. Very quiet location. Be aware of the "No pets" and "No alcohol" rules. They mean it.
We liked it for the quietness and if the weather was nicer we would have made good use of all the trails in the forest or maybe tried a few casts on the river. We camped at Oxbow Regional Park in a Truck Camper.

Silver Lake Motel & Resort, Silverlake, Washington

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

By all means, this is not a resort! A small RV Park right off the road to Mt. St. Helens. Not suitable for big rigs. Very narrow road inside. The rate is for a water/electric site which was just big enough to get the Truck Camper in. Leveling was difficult. Some sites are paved, some are gravel. All crammed together under some trees. No privacy. The complimentary WiFi was really poor in the evening but worked ok in the morning. Some road noise as of early morning, otherwise quiet.
We will not come back. We camped at Silver Lake Motel & Resort in a Truck Camper.
