Lake Pleasant RV Park, Bothell, Washington

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Don't think I agree with previous reviewer that you can walk to shops. Lots and lots of road construction going on so the roadside is not safe for walking. Clean, very close together sites. Fairly quiet (road noise, not camper noise). We had a pull thru with a view of the lake. It was safe and we would stay here again. When in the "zoo" ,known as Seattle, this is a fairly nice quiet place to stay. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Premier RV Resort of Salem Oregon, Salem, Oregon

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

Very clean and well kept. Close to hwy 22 so you get road noise (so, an 8 and not a 10). Best sites are anywhere from # 163 to 180. Those back up to a big field so there is plenty of room for you to walk the dog and the views are peaceful. We camped at Premier RV Resort of Salem Oregon in a Fifth Wheel.

Portland-Woodburn RV Park, Woodburn, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice park. Surprisingly quiet given its close locale to I-5. It is an older park, so it was made in the days of smaller RV's. Tight but doable. Best spots are along the west row. They back up to a nice shaded park. Laundry and showers were exceptionally clean. Staff very friendly. We camped at Portland-Woodburn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Castle Crags State Park, Castella, California

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

VERY loud campground - right next to I-5. Campground is rustic, treed, and pretty. But the overpowering road noise obliterates ANY sense of peace or tranquility of being in the forest. If the road noise was less, the rating would be higher. Interior road are very narrow. Spaces are very short, tight, and narrow. They say they take trailers 21-27 ft and they aren't kidding ! We struggled to get our 26 ft 5er in a spot. No hook ups, water spigots dispersed. Do have flush toilets and showers. If not for the pounding road noise this would be awfully close to a 10 . We will never return here. We were the only RV. Everyone else was in a tent. The host was in a 17 ft class B. Do not recommend bringing a bigger rig in here than about 25 ft. We camped at Castle Crags State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Yuba Sutter County Fairgrounds, Yuba City, California

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

Awesome fairgrounds with shady, large, and ample sites. Dump station on grounds at no extra cost for campers. $10/dump if not camping here. Gets a 9 because it is QUIET (that's very important to us.) Whole fairgrounds is fenced and has a night watchman so felt very safe. Gate is locked at night and they give you a code to re enter. Wonderful, clean showers and bathrooms. Would TOTALLY recommend this Yuba camp over the Good Sam one in town. There was one other camper here so we had acres and acres of campground all to ourselves. Definitely will return. We camped at Yuba Sutter County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

El Dorado County Fairgrounds, Placerville, California

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Note: phone number above good for Mon-Fri 9-4. Per earlier review, it is dispersed camping in the county fairgrounds. There are many nice spots where you can be placed. Lots of grass and open fields. We had a sweet spot near the maintenance building --sounds crummy but it was great. They had an event so we couldn't stay in this other spot nestled in a grape arbor. Maintenance guy met us at gate and was extremely helpful and accommodating. Water and electric hook ups, but no dump. Have flush toilets on site. They are trying to get a dump station in, but they are "fighting city hall". We had the whole, entire fairgrounds to ourselves. Sweet! He even gave us the key to the showers, so we had showers only we could use. Gets an 8 because the road noise is VERY noticeable. Pretty easy place to stay and easy to get to Tahoe for the day. We would return. We camped at El Dorado County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

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

This park is going to be open all year. It is now managed by American Land and Leisure a private concessionaire. Lovely park with clean, spacious sites. Very clean restrooms and showers; 50 cents gets you 5 minutes. Flush toilets. No hook ups of any kind. Gets an 8 because the road noise is very, very noticeable. Hosts are very friendly and gracious. Glad this park is open. It is very nice. $25/night, no credit cards--cash or checks only. We camped at Woodson Bridge State Rec. Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Joseph H. Stewart State Recreation Area, Prospect, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

The only reason we give this a 7 and not a 10 is the road noise. The road noise is rather noticeable. Other than that this is a beautiful, well maintained park. Clean restrooms and showers. Ample space between sites. Park-like setting with mowed grass and trees. Normal rate is $20 but we stayed during discovery season so it was $16. In terms of "loudness" , D loop is the quietest and furthest from the road but it is tents only. Next is B loop, then A loop, with C loop being the closest to the road and the loudest. Gets a lot of use during summer so reserve. We would return again. We camped at Joseph H. Stewart State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Fishermen's Bend, Mill City, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

River loop you must reserve. Camp loop (also call overnight loop) is 1st come (but you can reserve some of those as well). River loop is $28/night. Camp loop - odd numbered sites are $22/night. Camp loop - even numbered sites are $16/night. Camp loop odd numbered sites are pull thru so you have lots of room. Some are double sites so you camp camp with your buddies. Camp loop even numbered sites are all back in. They are very short. 12 to 18 feet in depth, so you need a small trailer to get into site. Lots of trails, facilities are clean, very private wooded sites with lots of space between them. The ONLY reason this gets a 7 is because the road noise at all the Camp loop pull thru is very noticeable. River loop is quieter because the N. Santiam river flows by very swiftly. Sites at River loop though are very small. Will not take a rig much bigger than 25 feet. Most of the tent sites are along the river. $5 to dump at the station even if you're a camper. A beautiful place and we would return again. It is open May to late Oct. We camped at Fishermen's Bend in a Fifth Wheel.

Life Northwest RV & Lodging (formerly River Life Resort), Harrisburg, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is in receivership and is now bank owned. The sites are not level as the concrete on most all the sites has broken up and is caving badly. Due to financial problems, it doesn't appear to have any maintenance going on. The sites are painfully close to one another and there is not a lick of shade. There is a beautiful section of the Williamette river here but there is no access at all. Train noise is also very noticeable. Yes, Wi-Fi is good. If you want privacy and a little breathing space, then this is not the place. There is very little to do in Harrisburg but I hear the fishing is nice. The clubhouse is in good shape, but the campground is way too tight. No shade, no privacy, squeeze tight so it gets a 3 overall. We were here for an RV rally, otherwise we would have only stayed one night. We camped at Life Northwest RV & Lodging (formerly River Life Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

La Pine State Park, La Pine, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites very tight and close together. Branches scraped RV. Access roads narrow. Can only stay one night unless reserved in advance. Reservation requirement not stated in 2012-2013 official state park guide. Must have Internet access to make reservations or can call mon-fri from 8-5pm. Very inconvenient. Will not return. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cottonwood Meadows Lake, Lakeview, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $6.00
Overall Rating:      

Name: Cottonwood recreation are / cottonwood meadow lake Forest: Fremont - Winema Closest town: Lakeview, Oregon Directions to campground: from Lakeview drive west about 21 miles to fs road 3870. Turn right and drive ~ 10 miles to campground. Cost: $6/night No reservations 21 sites for tents /RV's up to ~ 30 ft Vault toilets (in good condition) and water spigots situated around (no water directly at each site) Garbage must be packed out. Open early June to mid October (weather permitting) Road is paved to campground. Narrow but with turnouts. Cottonwood meadow lake is a no motor lake (electric OK) so it is very peaceful and quiet. Camp host - however, host is far removed from campsite so we didn't feel very safe there. There are a few sites for horses also. Elevation : 6130 ft Do not confuse cottonwood reservoir with cottonwood meadow lake. The lake is spring fed and nicer than the reservoir (subject to algae blooms). Campground is also mentioned in "Oregon's Quiet Waters" by Cheryl McLean and Clint Brown. We camped at Cottonwood Meadows Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Williamson River Campground, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Road to campground is very flat, wide and gravel. But it is very washboard-y. It's only 1 1/2 miles of gravel road so just take your time. Quiet, private. Vault toilets and a few central water spigots. Would easily hold 35 ft RV. There are 2 pull through sites that are huge, but they are for handicapped. Of the 2 pull throughs: #9 is the prettiest. No reservations needed. We like quiet, private, shaded sites. You'll find some here. We camped at Williamson River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Goose Lake State Park, Lakeview, Oregon

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

Although the restrooms are very, very run down (indicative of almost nonexistent state funding), this park is extremely serene and quiet. About 1/2 mile before park entrance is a private home /garden oasis on the south side of the road. The lady there sells fresh veggies and eggs. Yummy: we bought beans, tomatoes, cukes and eggs. Stock up there rather than the Safeway in town. Farm fresh! Camp sites are shaded. It was after Labor Day when we camped, so the park was relatively empty. If is was full, it might be a bit too crowded. Avoid the vault toilet behind site 22. It is a mess!!! Use the shower/flush toilets by the camp hosts. We camped at Goose Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here after Labor day so it was very quiet. Even tho it is off the Hwy, you can still hear road noise, but it is not overwhelming. Stayed in A22-very nice. Spacious sites, treed, shaded. Please note change - only A loop is 1st come. B loop is by reservation . Williamson river very pretty. Logging museum is cool. Camp hosts on site so we felt safe. Restrooms /showers clean but very very old. We camped at Collier Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
