Pelican Point, Jamestown, North Dakota

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

The last review for this park was posted in 2010 and I think a lot must have changed since then although we stayed here once before in 2009. For us, this campground is wonderful! There is a lovely balance between trees and open areas. It is right on a reservoir (and a very large one at that). They have flooded here from time to time as flood waters here prevent flooding in Jamestown itself. The park is very well kept up - lawns mowed carefully, sites clean and we thought quite level, though we didn't try them all and my husband says some are not as level as others. We camped in site 26, which is right on the lake. There are several docks for fishing or swimming. Our lab loves running off the dock after a toy in the water. There are small cabins to rent and two playground areas for the kids. There is great walking around the park and there are some cement pads, I'm thinking for tents, also. We have a Golden Age card and we paid only $12.50 for water and electric site, right on the lake. There is also a dump station (if there had been sewer hook ups I would have given it a 10). My one and only complaint about the campground, other than the sewer issue, is the mosquito population if HUGE. I think we are here at a time of year when they are plentiful most places but we did not go out without spray. I would highly recommend this park for your camping enjoyment. We camped at Pelican Point in a Travel Trailer.

Dash Point State Park, Federal Way, Washington

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second stay at Dash Point. We visit our daughter in Seattle and camp here because it is close to her. There are lovely shade trees here and the sites aren't too close together. The turns are quite tight in some of the campsites which is the only reason we gave it an 8. If you have a bigger RV, the B loop might be really tight for you. However, it is lovely and shaded and most pleasant. We camped at Dash Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pine Near RV Park, Winthrop, Washington

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We just loved this park. Of course, we were the only people camping here, and we can't attest to how close together the campsites are. But the hosts were very friendly, helpful, and responsive to our need. The restrooms, laundry, and showers were spotless, though we didn't use them. This is such a short walk from town. There were deer everywhere on the property, and our dog was on very high alert the whole time. The cabins are on a hill with great little lights all the way to guide someone up there. We hear in the summer this campground is a nursery for baby deer. We just might be back in June. We had a terrific time here attending the Balloon Festival. We camped at Pine Near RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina, Needles, California

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great spot for the family and dogs to be on the river. The "pods" accommodate 3-4 campers, but the location is great if not completely private. These peninsula locations cost more than the other RV sites that are closer to the office. The people are very friendly and there is a lot to do. We gave it a 7 only because of the cost. $50 per night is pretty steep and if you reserve online, it is another $10. At $60, we think this is overpriced. There are no discounts available. Would we stay here again? Probably because it is interesting and a terrific site on the river, but we sure wouldn't stay here for a long time. Two weeks is $700! I think they could at least provider some kind of discounts: AAA, Good Sam, Passport or senior discounts, or perhaps seasonal rates. Its a fun spot, though. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Hidden Valley Ranch, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

It is a fairly long drive on country roads into the campground, but after questioning our decision to go that far off the main road, we arrived and realized it was a good decision after all. We recommend just taking it easy on the road instead of kicking up a lot of rocks, and it's a little dusty but fine. The people there are amazingly friendly and helpful. The owner even came out to see if he could help with any hooking up issues that might occur. The sites are not completely level, but we were able to use levelers to get things level. I expect this summer they will work on these sites to level them out a bit. They only took over the campground in September, but it looks like they are working now to optimize things. The sites are nicely spaced out and you can get a site right on the desert and have a lovely view. The have a nice laundry, too. And a tennis court that is fenced and they allowed the dogs to run in there, chasing a ball. Everything here is tidy, clean and welcoming. It is really a great spot. My only reservation, and it is a small one. There is a large cross on the hill as you come in and signs announcing bible study classes. Everyone has a right to display their religious preferences as they wish, of course. But for those who have religious preferences other than Christianity or who have no religious preferences, it might be a bit of a put-off for some. Overall, this place is great and the people who staff it are extremely friendly and helpful. We camped at Hidden Valley Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

McKinney Falls State Park, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This delightful park is just on the outskirts of Austin. The sites are very nicely spaced with water and electric hook ups and an easy to use dump site. There are lots of trees, and some sites have lovely shade. With the drought, the trees aren't as green, they tell us. Hopefully this year, they will get some rain. If you have dogs, hold on TIGHT. There are herds of deer in the woods. Our lab almost tore my arm off in the dark last night when she smelled or saw them. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at McKinney Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Village Creek State Park, Lumberton, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely state park, not too far off Highway 10, and well worth the extra miles that it took to get there (not long). It has lots of nice trees (which of course I love) and nicely spaced campsites. We are camping with a friend, and we were able to park right next to each other. Not too many people out and about at this time of year. There is vegetation growing between the sites for more privacy. The people who checked us in were very friendly and welcoming. My only complaint about that was the strong unpleasant smell of cigarette smoke. Yuck. Seems to me people should not be allowed to smoke in that kind of public building. That's the only reason I gave it a 9 vs. a 10. There are great hiking trails, a ton to do. Beware, however, there are ticks galore for the dogs! Make certain you check your pet over and treat with tick stuff before arriving, and then check all your own cracks and crevices. They love to be between your toes. We camped at Village Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Catfish Heaven Campground, Saint Martinville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice little park outside of St. Martinville and Breaux Bridge. I actually think it is quite a bit closer to Breaux Bridge. It has fishing (though not when we were there), a playground, a pool and nice grounds. We would have given this a higher score, but the bathrooms were not very clean, but the worst thing was the laundry room. The washers and dryers were fine, but the smoking in there was awful. When you want clean clothes, the last thing you want is for them to smell like you spent the night in a smoking night club. There are big no smoking signs up, but someone smokes in the ladies room that is attached and it stinks up the whole place. I think it is someone in residence there because as I was doing my laundry, there were three different times that I could smell fresh smoke, really really bad. Someone needs to manage this. We would stay again because the park is nice, but I would never use the laundry room again. The rate of 15$ is with a Passport card. We camped at Catfish Heaven Campground in a Travel Trailer.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Great location, friendly people, nice laundry room, clean and tidy. It is right on the river with great views of the barges. We would have given it a 10, but they don't have cable TV, and the super bowl was on! There is limited TV with an antenna in only one area of the park. We would have given it a 10 if there had been cable TV. We liked sites 109 and 108. We would definitely stay here again. They took Passport America or the rate would have been double.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a terrific campground. Don't be dissuaded by the location. You go through kind of an industrial area with some chemical tanks to get there. You might think it is a long ways from Memphis activities, but it really is only about 10 minutes, max. This campground is on the other side of the Mississippi. And right ON the river. We secured a camp site directly on the riverfront. The park is very well kept up, clean, tidy and cheerful. The short stay campground area has a free laundry room with two washers and dryers. So easy! The hosts are friendly. They even come by the campsite to pick up the garbage. Being able to see the river move by with its barges is amazing. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We highly recommend it. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Travel Trailer.

Davis Camp Park, Bullhead City, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great little surprise park (although not completely a surprise because we read about it on RV Park Reviews). It is right on the Colorado River. There are non-hook up sites right to the river, or hook up sites above the river or full hook up sites in a different area of the park. There is a great place for the dogs to run near the river and swim safely in a little lagoon. I would would given it a 10 except the people at the office weren't all that friendly. Also, they weren't available for ice at the times they said they would be open. The sites are a little bit close together on the hill portion of the park. The ones by the river would be great if you didn't want hookups of any kind. Next time we would do those and boondock. We camped at Davis Camp Park in a Travel Trailer.

Champoeg State Heritage Area, Newberg, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a terrific state park just south of Portland. If you are visiting in Portland, it would take you about 30 minutes to get to most of the city from here. The sites are very nicely spaced, tons of trees and a nice group area which we have used many times. Loop A is older, closer together but great trees. Loop B is newer, farther apart sites, but fewer trees. Both are great. We love camping here every year with our Airstream rally group. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Travel Trailer.

Boya Lake Provincial Park, Good Hope Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived early in the day, about 2 pm, and found a campsite #6 by the water. I think it is one of the best sites at the campground. It is right down by the lake (take the loop to the right) and is on the very end, so there was a lot of privacy. Our friends camped next door. Our site also has a square tent pad that is grassy, and we were able to pitch a screen house on it, a nice way to avoid those mosquitoes. The lake is just gorgeous. Flat and so blue, so very blue. There is a boat launch very close to the site and also the beginning of walking trail. The trail is 4 km round trip. It has some hills, but nothing too stressful to hiking. There is also another hiking trail that departs from the other end of the campground. It is 1.5 km long. The camp host was very friendly, and she brought us wood in a wheelbarrow. By evening, there were very few spaces available, so we were glad we got in early. The cost was $17 per night US. Well worth it. As with all provincial parks, there were no hookups, but there is a place to load with water. There are also recycling and garbage containers. This is a truly lovely park, we would definitely stay here again, but this time, for a week! We camped at Boya Lake Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Dave's RV Park and Campground, Vanderhoof, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Dave’s RV Park is in a lovely quiet setting east of Vanderhoff, BC. They have had the park for 20 years, and it is clear how much love and care they have put into the park. There is a putting greens area, a huge checker board outside for the kids and pretty flowers. The sites are close together, but not too close. Some of the sites are up against the woods, and others have trees. The restrooms and showers are absolutely spotless, some of the best we have seen on the whole trip. Some of the sites have cable TV and other don’t. The Wi-Fi is great! We caught up on all the old emails with ease. Owner and his wife welcomed us with grace and a warm attitude, something you don’t see all the time at RV parks. I’m sure, over the years, they have made many people feel welcome in Vanderhoff. They sure did us. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beaverview RV Park & Campground, McBride, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This pretty park, just beyond McBride, was a good overnight stop. The lawns are very nicely manicured and there are a variety of site types to chose from. There are some heavily treed, well separated sites at the very back which back up to the river below (fenced), but they don’t get good Wi-Fi reception. There are sites around the edges that back up to the woods but are open on the sides, and then totally open sites on the grass in the middle. The Wi-Fi is one of the best we’ve had on the trip. As with some other RV parks, there are lots of strict rules. I’m not a big rule person myself, but I wasn’t too put off by theirs. The garbage is only at the exit, which was mildly inconvenient. This place has obviously been cared for carefully, and is very tidy and clean. We enjoyed the Giggling Grizzly Pub which is right off to the right as you enter town. The building is just terrific, new, spacious, good selection of foods of all kinds. Also, the people at the visitor’s center were very pleasant. We would definitely stay at this park again. We camped at Beaverview RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
