Seneca Timber Inns and RV Park, John Day, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The previous review is accurate about the park. Excellent 2 day stop to rest and catch up. Across HWY 395 to the west is a quiet dirt road for long walks with the dog. To the north are the Strawberry Mtns. If you are looking for no frills, inexpensive place to relax for a couple of days, this is an excellent choice. Owner was very friendly. There is a lumber operation to the east, but the noise was not an issue. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Seneca Timber Inns and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Go 25 miles north to John Day and tour the Kam Wah Chung National Historic Site. It is the Chinese equivalent of the Hubble Trading Post in AZ, a remarkable story of 2 entrepreneurial Chinese immigrants who changed a community.

Base Camp RV Park (formerly Hunter RV Park), Lakeview, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Convenient, quiet stop-over spot. Owners putting some effort into improving an old park. We had wet weather and the dog's feet had to be wiped down every time she returned because of the mud coming through the gravel surface. Lots of waterfowl near by, because of the refuge. One note is that you should come with your fresh water tank full as the water in the community has been certified as safe, but can be discolored. The town is trying to address the issue as water can range from almost clear to peanut butter in color. We camped at Base Camp RV Park (formerly Hunter RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Just north of the park is an area of thermal activity and you can see "Old Perpetual" from the RV park. I drove over for a quick closeup. (see image). On cooler days, you can see the steam rising from many points on the landscape.

Carlsbad RV Park and Campground, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Because of the booming local oil industry business, the local parks are able to stay mostly full with long time residents while maintaining a limited number of spots for visitors at an elevated nightly rate. I doubt this park will have space in the summer - book ahead. We shared a pull thru space which meant we backed out when we left. Location was quiet. Reasonable place to take the dog, good power and close enough to Carlsbad Caverns. If only staying for the Caverns, might consider staying in Whites City instead. It would save you a drive if visiting later in the year when the bats are flying. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A long term resident cautioned me to stay off US 285 south of Carlsbad due to the number of accidents. We had approached via SR 128 and were surprised by the number of heavy vehicles we encountered supporting the drilling work. While many people see the bats leaving the Caverns, you should get up early to watch the bats re-enter the caverns - you will never forget the sounds of their wings vibrating as they dive into the opening.

Space Station RV Park, Beatty, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Basic no frills park with some spaces for transit visitors and some for long term residents. There are a couple of other parks nearby that may have more amenities as they look a bit newer, but we are comfortable as long as the services work and the place is safe, which they did. Friendly service, quiet even though close to the road. Acceptable stop. We camped at Space Station RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive towards Death Valley and look for the signs to Rhyolite, a national historic site for a town that sprung up in 1905 and was bust shortly afterwards. Plenty of photographic opportunities of the remaining structures, including a train depot, bank and house built from empty bottles. And of course - go through Death Valley.

Thousand Trails Nevada, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $3.00
Overall Rating:

The reviews had us wondering if we should stay, but it's an acceptable RV park. Yes, it's tight at times for the interior roads but the sites are mostly level with enough space between rigs. With the $3 upcharge for 50A, we had no issues with power. Some days you are in the flight path and will have non-stop flyovers. Went into one bathroom but would not use it as it had been cleaned but just didn't have that clean feeling due to the age and appearance. The pool was "closed indefinitely" with no other explanation according to a sign posted in the laundry rooms. The staff was always extremely helpful and courteous. All in all, it was an acceptable stopover, but it is yet another 1000 trails park that needs an investment. We camped at Thousand Trails Nevada in a Motorhome.

Walker Lake - Sportsman's Beach Recreation Site, Hawthorne, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $3.00
Overall Rating:

A dry camp high above Walker Lake far from the road noise and a VERY relaxing, refreshing stop after spending time in Las Vegas. You might have to look a bit for a level site but it's worth it. Many of the campers were experienced dry campers with solar panels - we only stayed 2 nights and the weather didn't require heavy battery usage. This stop was intended to be a short transit stop with walks. Do go down to the lower level to camp and watch for the signs that show how much the lake level has dropped (almost 200 feet) due to agricultural use up stream. We did have excellent Verizon signal and the sky was reasonably dark enough to make out a faint Milky Way. We camped at Walker Lake - Sportsman's Beach Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

Good park with sloping sites. I almost had to use blocks as the side to side slant was just about near the end of my stabilizing jacks. Power was good and the road noise was ok. We camped at Comstock Country RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Days End RV Park, Standish, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Very well maintained park ... just had a quality feel about it in all areas that we experienced. Easy to access for an overnight stay or longer, although you are about 15 minutes to Susanville where you can shop. The only area that might impact you is the closeness to each rig. Could have used a few more feet of spacing. However, we would definitely stay here again. You have two water spigots at your site. We camped at Days End RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lassen Volcanic National Park could be explored on a 200+ mile day but note that it is not totally opened until late May- June so check their website for the latest information. This year the snow depth was 11 feet on the road at the beginning of April and we could not drive the park road at the end of April as snow clearing had not finished. Definitely worth a visit.

Lyman Lake State Park, Saint Johns, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Originally booked site 14 and it had a steep slope. Pulled into site 13 and the ranger kindly changed the reservation. This was a nice site for power / water for a couple of nights. It is close to the dirt road leading to the petroglyphs trails. We had a great sunset when we were coming back from the hike (will post). The rate shown is our total cost for 2 adults.

Double T Homestead, Glenwood, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very laid back park with self registration for a few RV spots and a few cabins. We were not looking for much more than a place to stay for a couple of nights to explore the area and the cost was ideal for 50A, full hookups. It did take us a few minutes to position the rig since the 3 slots with a small patio are VERY tight, so slide out management is important - we ended up not extending a slide - just wasn't enough room. VERY VERY quiet area and we saw deer, horses, burros, javelinas. I would definitely stay here again. You will need to wipe your feet carefully and watch your dog's feet as the stickers are abundant - we were pulling them out of her paws and our shoes. The campground pooch is named "Cutie" and she would sleep under our RV, quickly popping out whenever our door opened for ear scratches and milk bones. We camped at Double T Homestead in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed the 5 mile drive to The Catwalk - a steel walkway suspended above the creek through Whitewater Canyon. The drive over to Mogollon, a "ghost" town was beautiful but we were camping too early for the town's attractions to be open.

Woody Mountain Campground & RV Park, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

An older park with a confusing tight layout before modern RV's. The staff graciously guided us to our site. The first site was so far out of level (a minimum tire lift of 9") that I asked for another option and he showed me a couple. The one I selected was level, but when I positioned the coach for slide out clearance, one side dropped off the level section and I had to use blocks to raise the wheels 4". I think the biggest surprise was the cost after seeing the prices paid in 2017. I always list the actual cost because taxes might include occupancy taxes from the community. The net - the cost at $48 is far above what the park stay is worth. The $37 rate in Oct 2017 would be high but acceptable. Given the rate surprise and the challenging sites, it's hard to rate this park other than average except for the very friendly service. Call and get a quote before staying. We camped at Woody Mountain Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Highbury Gardens RV Park, Kentville, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

A nice shaded campground, a good place to stay, although it is the second most expensive campground of the past 42 stops. Would be a reasonable value at about $7 less per night. We had good power and excellent cellular signal. During the weekend, the smoke was a bit heavy so we just closed up the windows and ran our air conditioner.

Nimrod's Campground, Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is run by a non-profit. They were between managers, so the hostess was a very nice volunteer. She let us choose a lake front site, perhaps 10 feet from the water. They are trying to upgrade and put improvements in annually. I was concerned based on some earlier reviews but we liked the park. Arriving mid week, the park was VERY quiet. We would stay here again.
