Yosemite Westlake Campground & RV Park, Coulterville, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a campground, not an RV park. Interior roads used to be paved, many years ago. Now rough potholed broken pavement, dirt, and some gravel. Campground is on a hillside with nothing really level. Some sites are ok, some hard to get level. All RV sites have full hookups. It has its charm, lots of trees, grassy area for tents and picnics, a large community fire pit with provided fire on Saturday nights. Sadly, many of the pine trees in the campground are dead from the whatever it is that is killing pines in California. The manager told us they have cut down about 100 so far and have another 30 to cut down this year. While there are some big rigs in here, the place overall is old style, smallish sites with tight clearances. Most of the RVs are smallish to fit in well. This campground clearly caters to the "extended stay" folk. Many of the rigs look like they have not moved in a very long time. The bathrooms are small (just one fixture per gender) and old, but, everything works and is satisfactorily clean. Overall, this is an ok place to stay if your RV is mid size or under and you are not looking for a sparkling RV park with lots of amenities. I would not pay their listed price of $50 per night. I would speculate that this is actually a marketing fiction to allow their real price of $25 per night with advertised 50% off (Escapees and Passport America). There is no cell service in this area. The campground has WiFi that is slow, but, functional for light use. The campground has no services. I would stay here again if I had a reason to be in this area, or, needed an inexpensive place to hang out for a short time. We camped at Yosemite Westlake Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Laundry, pizza place, market, cafe, hardware store, gasoline, and post office are just 1/2 to 3/4 miles down the road. The Escapees directory says that there is a restaurant next door and a mini market across the road. Not anymore, both gone.

49er RV Ranch, Columbia, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This place left us with very mixed feelings. Our site was VERY small and the other rigs around us were withing touching distance. There were larger sites, but, those were overstuffed with giant rigs, all packed in tight together. The access to the sites was very cramped with very tight turns and, in some cases, steep grades to climb. Watching the big rigs trying to maneuver into their site was a spectator sport like watching a demolition derby, you are just waiting for the crunch. Fortunately, there were no crunches because the ranch staff were amazingly good. They guided everyone safely into their space with clear experience and expertise. In at least one case of a very tricky spot up a steep grade, the 5th wheel was unhitched and the staff parked it for the customer using the ranch's small maneuverable flat bed truck (which just happens to be equipped with a fifth wheel hitch and two different size tow ball hitches. This is a nice place to stay with free coffee and chatter in the mornings and a provided BBQ hot dog dinner (donations accepted) and campfire with Smores Friday night. The place has a definite Ranch feel with none of the plushness of an RV park, yet, still has the needed facilities. The location is super, less than a mile from downtown Columbia. The street leading to the Ranch is in pretty sad shape, but, that is outside the control of the Ranch. We would like to have a little more space in the sites, but, the staff more than make up for it. They are helpful and friendly. We enjoyed staying here and probably will be back. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

Gold Country Campground Resort, Pine Grove, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our third stay here. We like this campground quite a bit. It has many amenities for families during the summer (water park, mini golf, swimming pool, arcade). These things are closed during the off season when we come (rates are lower then as well) so I cannot comment on them. This is a campground with many tent sites, and two RV loops. The resort in the name comes from the amenities, a motel building, and some cabins. When we have been here (May and Sept) the place is quiet with maybe one or two tents and a dozen RVs (not counting the "extended stay" folk in the lower RV loop). As with most RV places with "extended stay" residents the WiFi bogs down to just about useless in late afternoon and into the evening. The sites in the upper (transients) loop are arranged in a long line across the top of a low hill, a mixture of pull throughs and back ins on both sides of the road. Access is pretty good with a few very large sites that will fit just about anything down to smallish backins with ok clearances. I would not call this campground "big rig friendly", but, I have seen some pretty big units squeeze into the long sites. There are lots of trees with most sites having shade at least part of the day, some pretty much all day. Bathrooms are not plush, but, functional, well maintained, and kept clean. There are plenty of restaurants, small town shops, and an nice market in the town of Pine Grove all within a couple of miles. We will be staying here again. We camped at Gold Country Campground Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lakeside RV Park, Everett, Washington

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

This is a very nice park for being in an urban setting. Each site has hedges between it and your neighbor. That and the lake (ok, really a small pond) help remove the feeling of being right on a busy main street with shopping malls and businesses everywhere. The park is set behind other businesses and slightly down hill. It is remarkably quiet back there. Typical of urban parks there are plenty of long term residents, but, everything was neat and well maintained. The location is convenient to local attractions. We would stay here again.

River Walk RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a small park in an urban setting. The spaces and drives are tight. We did not have any problems as we have a small trailer. We did observe some folks in big rigs struggling to get in and parked without hitting anything. The location is great and the price reasonable. There is a view of the Spokane river from the park and a short walk takes you to the hike/bike/run/walk trail along the river front. You can easily walk to the downtown area and lakeside beaches and parks in Coeur d'Alene. We enjoyed our stay and will go back again. We camped at River Walk RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Boise Riverside RV Park, Boise, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Our favorite thing about this park is its' location. The greenbelt along the river runs alongside the park. Easy access to the hike/bike/run/walk path along the river. Another location plus is the baseball stadium right next door. The park itself does have some permanent residents and some older rigs, but, the facilities are clean and in good condition. This is not a pretty upscale resort. It is a good solid park in a great location. We plan on staying here again next year. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sparks Marina RV Park, Sparks, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice park. We liked the short walk to and around the Marina area. The rest rooms and showers were immaculate. We were just staying overnight, so, we did not make much use of the facilities. Everything looked excellent. We would stay here again. We camped at Sparks Marina RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
