Tonopah RV, Tonopah, Nevada

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

Agree with other comments, not alot of options is this area,other than boondocking. All pull thru sites, with lanscape element between. Very easy access from highway, drawback would be all the highway noise. Staff was great, we would definitely stay again, as we travel thru area. Not really a destination location. Bathroom area a little tight but shower space generous with dry off area including bench. Laundry had sofa for seating and T.V. We camped at Tonopah RV in a Motorhome.

Whispering Elms Campground, Baker, Nevada

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

Due to weather, opted for this location in lieu of forest service campgrounds...not sure i would return. Staff was pleasant, but this place needs some clean up. Buildings definitely patched together, restrooms were relatively clean, but old. Older equipment, building materials, cars randomly parked on perimeter. All sites pretty close, no distinguishing separation other than utility pedestal at back of site. We checked into the site at the bar which is on site. We camped at Whispering Elms Campground in a Motorhome.

Bear Lake / Garden City KOA, Garden City, Utah

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

We thought this was a nice, quiet park; but we were here mid week, and off season, so there were very few other campers. As noted by others, mature trees are nice, gravel sites with grass between. Sites are close, but with very few guests during our stay, we were all spread out for more privacy. With the amount of playground amenities, this is probably a very busy family park in the season. Love having grocery store and hardware store right next door. Staff was pleasant and efficient. Showers nice! Due to lack of space, they only had small dry off area with wall hooks. Laundry facility okay, little cramped. We paid extra to have Wi-fi, but was slow, even with only a few of us there. We camped at Bear Lake / Garden City KOA in a Motorhome.

Iron Horse RV Resort, Elko, Nevada

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

Similar to most comments, clean, quiet park. Pads are gravel, we did have to level our unit when we pulled in. We had a back in slot and did not think the spaces were too tight...They have large concrete pads for the picnic tables. The pool is pretty small, but they do have nicely cared for green spaces, and semi (?) mature trees. Bath and showers clean, but shower and dry off area pretty small. Not far from some restaurants and shopping. Nice stop over location... We camped at Iron Horse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed having full hookups in a state Park setting. Hosts are very present and helpful. Loved how the park has used shrubs and trees to create quite a bit of privacy at each site! We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Riverpark RV Resort, Grants Pass, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful, well maintained, small park on the river's edge. We had a 31' class C motor home and we moved in comfortably around mature cottonwood trees. The only reason we rated a 9 is because a number of the sites are tight. But love being close to the Rouge river, and this location has a shared sandy beach for all guests to enjoy. Even if you have an interior space, you can bring your chair over and enjoy the water. (Pretty cold and it is moving at a good clip!)
Concrete pad, full hook up, on the river for $40 is a good deal! We were only passing thru, but like this spot so much, hope to come back and stay a couple of days! We camped at Riverpark RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Glenyan RV Park & Campground , Ashland, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have noted, this is a very tight, dense little park. We have a 31' Class C, and saw one or two larger rigs, but we are all pretty much on top of each other. Bonus, lots of nice mature trees and a creek nearby. Also kids might enjoy the pool. Mostly needed a park close to Ashland and this met the need. We camped at Glenyan RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

McCloud RV Resort, McCloud, California

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

The setting is terrific, lots of towering pines, hanging flower pots, small creek, and lots of grass. We found the staff helpful, they moved us to a site we preferred over the one assigned. This is not always possible with lots of weekend guests booked in. Sites very in size, some better then others in terms of size. Wi-Fi seemed weak, but we did not try too hard, pulled out our on hot spot for service. Great view of Mt. Shasta, and walk to town is pretty easy. Hwy. 89 is right next to the park, so road traffic can be a problem. But I love sitting under the trees so we keep coming back. We camped at McCloud RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Seacliff State Beach, Aptos, California

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a relatively expensive park to stay at, but what a location! I have only managed to secure the overflow section, but the side by side slots are wide enough for slideouts, and your table, chairs and fire ring. Meanwhile, you are sitting right at the ocean, kids are on the beach playing, and there is great people watching as lots of walkers and joggers use the board walk in front of your RV. Nice little museum on site, restrooms are heavily used, but at least available, and as clean as you might find at a sandy beach....and the sunsets are beautiful! If you are looking for a secluded beach spot, this is not the place. But I love visiting here, I just adjust my expectations accordingly! We camped at Seacliff State Beach in a Motorhome.

Even though this camping spot is down at the beach, you can walk up to Aptos easily for groceries, coffee, ice cream, shopping and restaurants. So this is a great location for all other amenities. Also there is a kids park just up the road.

Riviera RV Park, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow, this is a tired little park. Situated right next to a mobile home park, and this must be the option for semi-permanent residents in RVs as opposed to mobile homes. I would guess at least half of the site is dedicated to these semi-permanent residents. So you can parked next to oddly defined "yards", or canopied work and storage areas that serve these residents. I can't remember if the park had trees any where other than at the perimeter. BUT I must say this park was quiet. Not too far from the strip, and near public transportation. The host was very pleasant, and although the restrooms (concrete block) were old, they were very clean. Same for the shower, very clean. Just not a great part of town. We camped at Riviera RV Park in a Motorhome.

Brite Lake, Tehachapi, California

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

Not a bad option for Tehachapi with an RV. Small little county recreation park built adjacent to a reservoir. We were here in the winter, so pretty quiet, not sure how busy the day use areas are during the warmer months. Sites not very private, and not very level, but each had a table and fire ring. Restrooms had flush toilets, but pretty tired, a little dirty (not bad), in a concrete block building. Shower looked a little nasty, but does have running water, and I don't think you had to pay for it. Enjoyed the walk around the reservoir, and this park does give you lots of room to walk around and enjoy the foothills. Wished we had brought our dog; he would have enjoyed. Cost was nominal, and we got a senior rate. We camped at Brite Lake in a Motorhome.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is immaculate. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is while Hwy. 58 is not visible, oddly enough you can hear the highway traffic noise from the park. Also as nice as the orange trees are, they are, by nature, not a canopy tree, so they don't add much shade. However, sites, restrooms, showers were so clean, and park was quiet with lots of retired folks, snow birds passing through. Only amenities nearby are the ones offered by the park. This is out in the orchards, but not far from town. We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Deer Creek Campground - Sierra National Forest, Huntington Lake, California

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This small campground is right on the lake and is just a walk away from the boat ramp. Great place to stay if you are bringing a boat. Sites aren't particularly private, but lots of tall Lodgepole pines give it shade. Short walk to Lakeshore restaurant, bar and market. Campground near lakeside road for great bike riding. Good departure point for day trips to Florence, Edison and Mono Hot Springs. Mostly tent campers, but we brought our 5th wheel and got a double site, and selected a premium site which took our rate up to $48 per night. (A little high for a site without utilities: but still nice.) Roads a little tight for the bigger units. We camped at Deer Creek Campground - Sierra National Forest in a Fifth Wheel.

Millers Landing, Seward, Alaska

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

Wow, this place has so much potential, great location with a stunning drive along Resurrection Bay. At the end of the road you hit this sort of ragged, community of homes? cabins? and the campground. There are a lot of sites on the water, and a knot of sites in the woods, no rational in layout, just found spots between trees and labeled them. Looks like new restrooms and shower building, but plumbing did not work, and they were poorly kept up. But frankly, staff seem to be young guys who just want a summer in Alaska, so not sure they really care about cleanliness. We were here in the rain, so the mud compounded the problem. Husband could not use restrooms in the a.m. Just plugged up fixtures. I think this site works for people who just want time on the bay with lots of recreation options. Not lots of private RV options in Seward, and we wanted reservations since we were here over the fourth of July. Have to pay hourly for Wi-Fi access. We camped at Millers Landing in a Motorhome.

Oceanview RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This RV park is similar to all the parks I saw in Homer, simply a parking lot with utilities. But it did not seem as dense, and the terraced slots helps to minimize that aspect. We were fortunate and ended up up towards the bottom with just a fabulous view of the bay. So much better than the wind and bedlam on the spit. Ferry works out well, however it is $10 per day per person, so can be a little expensive. Location is great for walking town, shopping, museums and down to beach! Staff was terrific and the place was really very clean. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Motorhome.
