Park Lake Provincial Park, Lethbridge, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice little park, complete with sandy beach and a pleasant trail that goes around part of the lake. Situated in the middle of farmed fields; very quiet at night but can be quite windy at times. The campground is in two parts. Loop A is older and is not really suited to bigger rigs, but it does offer many sites that are just about on the water. Loop B is much more recent and offers long pull-throughs as well as several back-ins. There is a central dump station (fee) and several water spigots throughout the campground. Power remained solid during our stay despite high occupancy. The park tends to be booked solid for the nice summertime weekends; advance reservations recommended. We camped at Park Lake Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Massacre Rocks State Park, American Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Caveats about our visit: only the upper loop was open (winter season), the whole park was undergoing electricity upgrades (up to 50-amp service on several sites!), and the water wasn't turned on--we had to dry camp, which explains the discounted rate. That being said, what a wonderful spot, with great views of (and boat access to) the Snake River. The campsites are interestingly designed along the contours of the terrain, which also means that only a few are suitable for big rigs (especially in the upper loop). That also applies to the interior roads, which require careful driving. Nice walking/biking trails (unpaved). Dump station available when exiting (could be challenging for bigger rigs). Definitely recommended, but take your time if in a big rig. We camped at Massacre Rocks State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar City KOA, Cedar City, Utah

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

Older, smaller KOA, although well maintained and modernized; not overly attractive. Check-in a little curt but efficient (although the entrance gets pretty cramped if two or more rigs are present at the same time--careful manoeuvring necessary). FHU functional, no complaints there. Larger and smaller pull-through sites (big rigs no problem), and several large back-ins at the back of the park. Grass between pull-through sites, typical width for such parks, about 7 feet. In a rather industrial neighbourhood but not too noisy at night. Leaving the park can be challenging, especially if turning left (northbound), as the park is on a pretty busy four-wide main road. Overall, the price was reasonable but I wouldn't want to pay much more. We camped at Cedar City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Boardman Marina Park, Boardman, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

What an enjoyable park! Lots of grass, right by the Columbia River, and a 3-mile walking/biking paved trail runs right through it. FHU showing their age a bit, but perfectly serviceable. Most sites are paved with an adjacent gravel (tent?) pad; leveling can be a little difficult, especially on the pull-through sites. Several sites can accomodate big rigs, but not all. Gets quite busy, I think reservations are a necessity during the peak season (we were there in early April and the park was essentially full). Great overall, we'll definitely come back when in the area. We camped at Boardman Marina Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sandy Riverfront RV Resort, Troutdale, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

'Standard' modern RV park, with pull-through sites in the middle (mostly overnighters) and back-ins along the periphery (mostly perms or semi-perms--nice rigs, no clutter). Extremely clean and well managed (aside from the office hours being quite limited). FHU perfectly functional (for the pull-through sites, electric and water at the back, sewer in the middle); nice grassy strip between the sites (not overly wide, but acceptable in such a park). Train tracks are very close to the park, but for the most part, it looks as though they don't blow their horn very often, so we didn't mind the rumble when they (frequently) go by. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Great little state park. Extremely reasonable price for water and electric, but be aware there is a $10/night surcharge for a second vehicle if that's your case. The campground is well laid out and very suitable for big rigs (most sites). Accommodations vary from 50-amp FHU to dry camping. All sites are well spaced, level and just a short distance from Lea Lake's beach, the largest of the bottomless lakes. Nice visitor centre, complete with explicative displays about the origin and nature of the lakes. Nice wetlands trail at the south end of the park and a 3-mile hiking/mountain-biking trail at the north end. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tombstone Territories RV Resort, Huachuca City, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice RV park. All sites are large pull-throughs on desert gravel. Full hook-ups at each site (some 30 amps, some 50 amps); the only drawback is very low water pressure (35 PSI)--but the water is very soft, an amazing and pleasant surprise in Arizona. Electricity is metered (even for overnight stays) and billed upon checkout. Despite their website's claim, the views are just OK. At least, no industry or junkyard in sight. In my opinion, the best RV park near Tombstone, which is about a 10-minute drive away. We camped at Tombstone Territories RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Crescent City / Redwoods KOA, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is with KOA discount. Decent, smaller park. Like most KOAs, a little over-priced. All hook-ups worked fine but only a few sites are suitable for bigger rigs, and even then some tight manoeuvring is required. Our site was adequate but far from spacious. Small petting zoo on site (goats, etc.). Dog friendly. We camped at Crescent City / Redwoods KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Ancient Redwoods RV Park, Redcrest, California

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

Being there during the low season, the park was mostly empty and very quiet. Nice sites, easy enough to maneuver, and FHU all up to par. Very helpful and friendly owners (office is at the gift shop when you first pull in). We would definitely come back when in the area. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Located near most Redwoods attractions and parks, but rather far from most services (nearest diesel is in Rio Dell, about 10 minutes to the north). If in a bigger rig, I'd recommend using Exit 667 off Hwy 101, that way the Avenue of Giants is much easier to negotiate than if using Exit 671.

Aurora RV Park and Marina, Nice, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is for extra-long pull-through (other side of the road). Plenty of room for truck, 40-ft fifth wheel and small car. Could get muddy on rainy days, but nice enough. FHU worked well. Nice and quiet, especially at night. The Campground is in two parts: one on the lake with the office and one across a minor road. No issues there. A note: it looks as though they can accommodate biggish rigs on the lakeside part (we were there during the low season and a forty-five footer managed to cram in there), but certainly not the case during busy times. It's more for smaller C-Class and B-Class rigs. Would come back. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Corning RV Park, Corning, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate based on weekly. Overall a nice park located in an old olive grove. All sites have gnarly olive trees, which provides for a nice setting. FHU worked well. Layout is standard rows of pull-throughs, but spacious enough compared to other parks we have visited. Lots of permanent residents, overall well kept but a few minor surprises (dogs occasionally noisy, etc.). Caretaker very attentive and hard-working, and it shows--we thought everything was well maintained and good-looking. Lots of road noise because of proximity to I-5 (but that also means access is very easy). Overall we enjoyed our stay and would come back. We camped at Corning RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We very much enjoyed visiting the Lucero Olive Company, in Corning. The tour was pretty quick (it's not that large nor complex) but interesting. Their products are outstanding (if a bit pricey). Also, Black Butte Lake Recreational Area is a 30-minute drive away, with lots of hiking trails and a nice lake (swimming, fishing, boating).

Tule COE, Porterville, California

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

We visited during the low season and almost had the park to ourselves; only a few other rigs. It was very quiet and in a nice setting. Power was adequate. Staff seldom on site; the main office was closed during our entire stay (three weeknights). A fair number of fishermen but at the other end of the park. We enjoyed kayaking on the lake, lots of waterfowl at this time of year. A bit of road noise but not bad at all. Overall, we'd certainly come back. We camped at Tule COE in a Fifth Wheel.

A Country RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Very clean and quiet campground (despite proximity to highway). Easy in and easy out, big rigs no problem. Many monthlies/permanents at the back and around the perimeter, for the most part clean and uncluttered. Transients are given sites at the front. Concrete pad with grass 'yard' for each site; very clean and well maintained. All utilities OK including cable with lots of channels. Fairly large grass area near the office where dogs may be off leash; there is also a fenced dog run in the back. Not in the best of neighbourhoods (campground is fenced with gate closing at 7 PM) but we felt safe at all times. All services are only a few minutes away in Bakersfield. Would definitely stay again. We camped at A Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Roper Lake State Park, Safford, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice little park in a somewhat unexpected location. Our site (#14) was on the lake and well spaced from our neighbours (equally true for the vast majority of the sites in the park). The lake itself is not very large but will afford a nice, quick paddle. It is also stocked and fishermen are welcome. There is good hiking within and without the park, mostly desert floor and mesas. All utilities worked well and we had a strong Verizon signal; staff were very friendly and the ranger patrolled regularly. We would definitely stay here again.

Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow, we loved it here. The campground itself is well laid out, with sites spaced far enough away from each other to afford good privacy. The park is beautiful, including great views of Superstition Mountain from just about anywhere. Lots of hiking trails ranging from short walks to arduous, multi-hour climbs in adjacent Tonto National Forest (which includes Superstition Mountain). Moreover, the park's staff were exceedingly helpful when I discovered it was physically impossible for me to get into the site I had reserved online because of the size of our rig (see tips). The park manager himself came over and assessed the situation; he agreed and graciously offered that we stay the night in the (dry-camping) overflow while he tried to find a solution for the remainder of our stay. The next morning at 8:00, a park staff knocked on our door and explained that they had found us a suitable, non-reservable spot and were holding it for us for the remainder of the week. We moved and had a wonderful time during the following days. They even refunded us the rate difference between our reserved site and the overflow site for the first night despite the whole thing being pretty much my mistake. Not only will we make it a point to stay here again, I also wish to highlight the park staff's outstanding level of professionalism and helpfulness. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be wary of the new loop (sites 75-104) if you're in a bigger rig. Many are not suitable despite being described as very long on the reservation website; they may be very acute U-type pull-throughs, or be at such a sharp angle to the (quite narrow) road as to be impossible to back into. Site #93 was such a case for our 40' fifth-wheel with long-bed dually combination..
