Winnemucca / I-80 KOA (formerly I-80 Winnemucca), Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We only stopped overnight. The park seemed spacious and well-kept. Asphalt and gravel. We arrived late in the evening and left first thing the following morning but it was a great park for a quick stop-over. We camped at Winnemucca / I-80 KOA (formerly I-80 Winnemucca) in a Motorhome.

Twin Falls / Jerome KOA, Twin Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a rather small park that directly off the highway which means you will get some highway noise but it wasn't bad. We did get a pull-through site. The park has lots of trees so we weren't able to use our Dish TV . We were able to access local HD channels. The pool was nice and fairly clean. The park is all gravel and some asphalt and the sites are long enough for a big rig and a car, but just barely. Good for a few night's stopover. There are some fun things to do around Twin Falls for a day or so. We camped at Twin Falls / Jerome KOA in a Motorhome.

The Virginian Lodge RV Resort, Jackson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $100.00
Overall Rating:      

We booked a month of July, 2017 at this park. We knew the price when we booked it and decided to go anyway. As the other reviewers say, it just is not worth the money, but they are really the only park in a decent location near Teton National Park. The good news is that you can connect from the RV park to miles of really nice bike trails, walk across the street to the free bus shuttle to town or just simply walk to and back to the town of Jackson, so the location is ideal. You do have access to the hotel's swimming pool, but it is not heated and there are swarms of children and families in there that you compete with to get in an afternoon swim. The RV park was full to capacity the entire time we stayed there. One of the washers and four dryers were out of order for at least two weeks of our stay in the laundry room. I finally used the laundry room up by the hotel. Also, one of the RV Park's employees parks his large truck and utility trailer just to the left of the exit, creating a terrible traffic hazard and zero visibility. I spoke to him about it but he didn't move it. A week is plenty of time at this park. I would try one of the parks in Dubois if I ever go back. We camped at The Virginian Lodge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town is absolutely jammed every day with traffic, noise, crowds, and overpriced shops and galleries. Did someone else say expensive? Everything in Jackson is expensive. And bring your stamina, because the traffic, pedestrians, bike riders, buses, trucks and trailers will all be coming at you from all four directions every time you try and drive anywhere. The only wildlife I saw all month were some buffalo that are at the north end of Teton National Park. There was one family of swans in the Elk Refuge. Nothing else but some ducks. The Tetons were ok, as the crowds tend to stay more in the town of Jackson and off and on their tour buses on Hwy. 89. The mountains are spectacular.

Mountain Valley RV Resort, Heber City, Utah

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

We booked a pull-through site which was wide, all concrete and level. Every pull-through site is that way. This is the nicest RV Park I have ever stayed at. There are many private restrooms with showers, a clubhouse and two pools. There is a new over-55 section that has its own pool and no one is allowed in there that is under 21 so the pool is clean and quiet. The entrance and exit are gate-controlled. You are close to so many parks, stores and amenities that you would never run out of things to do. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a 38' motorhome. Sites are uneven and gravel/dirt. Wind comes up every afternoon so the area gets very dusty. We camped at Panguitch KOA in a Motorhome.

LVM Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $95.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived and were escorted to our site with great service. However, the park is confusing and the location of items like pools, etc. is vague. The pools are scattered around the resort and we found one near our site. Since it was June and very hot, we opted for the pool as soon as we could. The first day was fine, but the second day it was full of "regulars" who were staging a "flotilla" in the pool with their pool floats and party items. We opted to go back to the coach rather than deal with people who live there year-round. The only other problem we dealt with was trash. We were told just "put it out front" and someone would come by. After 24 hours, the same trash was out front of our rig and we had to call the office to ask for a pick-up. They finally came by about 2 hours later. Then we were told that we had to put the trash in a ceramic pot and our trash bags were in the wrong place. ??? There was also a gas grill on our site and I called the office to see if I could use it and I was told no, that it was the property of the owner only. I was told to use the grills up by the clubhouse and main pool. I went up there with my items and found that not one of the three grills was working. I was upset enough to tell security about it. A security guard came by my site about 30 minutes later to tell me I was right, the grills were inoperable. I think for the amount of money we were spending, ($90 night in June), that we could get a few things right. We camped at LVM Resort in a Motorhome.

Ventura Beach RV Resort, Ventura, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $95.00
Overall Rating:      

Booked a two-night stay starting on September 8, 2016. We reserved in advance and asked for premium site #44. They charge $25 extra to confirm a site. They asked what type of motorhome and we told them a Class A 36'. Arrived at 11:00am and were told check in was not until 1pm. Our site was visible from the check-in office so I pointed out that our site was vacant. She then checked us in. All the staff we dealt with at the park were actually very polite..

Our rate was $95 a night, plus 10% "Hotel Tax" and another $2.85 "Business Improvement Tax". All total, the nightly rate was $119.91. I think this park is outrageously expensive for what you get.

We were not able to hook up at site 44. The park has been improved and one of the changes is at some sites the hook-up post and sewer drain have been elevated on an approximate 1 1/2 foot concrete pad. Our Class A's sewer drain attaches underneath the RV and the hose cannot "go uphill" to an elevated pad to work effectively. We asked to move to a site that could accommodate our RV. We were told that the manager was out. After about 30 minutes this same young woman called my husband and said we could move to site 125. Please note this was a pull-through site but not a premium site nor in the better location but we agreed and moved.

This park is immediately adjacent to the US101 and extremely noisy. Motorcycles seem to be the worst. We had full-timers on either side. A large 42' Class A had to back in on the row behind us and had a difficult time maneuvering around our RV. This site was just large enough to accommodate our RV and tow vehicle. The park is surrounded by chain link fencing. I would not return to this park. We camped at Ventura Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The city of Ventura has a terrible homeless problem and they are everywhere. Walking, on bicycles, pushing grocery carts, loitering, sleeping. The city beach is not good and there is no where to park your car. The beach is full of seaweed.

Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA, Cascade Locks, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We were assigned site 47 upon checking in. We drove to site with park host. Site was long and wide-good for pull through site. Then we discovered it was only a 30 amp site even though our confirmation said 50. I had to walk back to office and after an hour of waiting in the office they moved us to 46. Due to amount of pine trees there was no way to connect to our Dish tv service. Trees were nice though for the shade. It kept the RV cool.

This site is about as close as you can get to the railroad tracks. The trains blow their horn at precisely the KOA location. They run through starting at 5am, 5:30am, 6am then start up around 5pm, 5:30 pm, 6pm. Then again around 2am and 2:30am. I don't know about the rest of the day because we were out.

The trash situation is the worst I've ever experienced. They only have one trash area for the entire park which is right at the park office-entrance. Smelly, full of gnats and bugs, unorganized, regular old smelly trash cans for the recycle, which people were dumping their regular trash because the landfill bins were spilling over. It is a total mess and they should be written up by the health department.

We staid 3 nights. It's a shame this place is so bad because the area is absolutely stunning with natural beauty and endless activities. Sites and roads in park are mostly dirt. There seem to be quite a few full-timers there too. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for 7 nights in Feb. 2014. Park changed ownership in Dec. 2013 so has many more amenities and is more attractive than the typical KOA. Sites are large and pull-throughs are plentiful. Access in and out of park is good; although, they need more signage. There's an outdoor heated pool, fitness center, laundry, and good restaurant on property. Wi-Fi is free but does not work very well. Since we stayed here in February there were very few children. Each site has a metal table and four chairs-very nice touch! You can even get an upgraded site that includes grass. Our site had it. You need at least 7-14 days in Tucson because there are so many things to do. Don't bother with Tombstone. It's very commercial and not much left that's authentic. Try Bisbee. I hear that's more fun. Also look up Tubac which is an area with lots of shops and restaurants. San Xavier Mission is nearby and Tubac has an old presidio to explore. I would definitely come back here. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Motorhome.

Pueblo El Mirage RV Resort (55+ park), El Mirage, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

As I am writing this the noise from the F-17's flying overhead (time-8:00pm) is so loud that I have to wait until they pass to speak to my husband. El Mirage is located directly under the flight path of Luke Air Force base. While I do enjoy the sounds of freedom I don't like paying $54 base rate/night plus 12.27 tax to listen to it. The air base practices maneuvers Mon-Fri - 8:00am - 8:00pm. It is deafening. They do not warn you about this when you register. The park is nice, very large. Great pool, spa, fitness and laundry area. Combination of manufactured homes and RV park sites. You are not close to very many amenities or any sightseeing in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Maximum speed limit on the roads is 35 MPH. Look out for the speed screens! No cable, Wi-Fi or table included with rate. Back ins only, no pull-throughs. Not close to interstate roads either. Lots of surface street driving. There is a golf course here but you will be deaf by the time you finish. We camped at Pueblo El Mirage RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Las Quintas Oasis RV Resort (55+ park), Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Clean park, easy to find, pull-through site a big advantage. Pool area small but nice. Bathroom and showers well-maintained. Park is combination mobile sites for owners and RV sites. We were in central area so away from Interstate. Try not to book too close to that area as it can get noisy. Yuma is an interesting and friendly city. Lots to see and do. Wi-Fi didn't work very well and there were no tables at sites which would have been nice. While spaces are wide there is a funny cement fixture in the center which forces the rig to park to one side. I would return. We camped at Las Quintas Oasis RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

High Sierra RV & Campground, Oakhurst, California

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Signage is not very good so finding the park off SIR 41 was not easy. I just happened to see the small sign and directed my husband to make the right turn before we passed it. You then have to go down a very steep narrow road to get to it. The park looks nothing like their website. The stream is practically non-existent so swimming or fishing is impossible. The view from the full hookups is of the utility company across the Fresno River. The sites were so narrow we could barely get our slides out and have enough room to sit outside. Our neighbors hookup including their sewer outlet was right next to where we sat. The picnic table was warped and about to fall apart. This is actually an old trailer park and these residents don't do enough to keep up the appearance of their lots. Old patio furniture, tires, appliances form their landscape designs outside. There is one bathroom and shower facility that everyone shares and the tent campers don't do much to keep it clean. The trash areas were clean and trash was removed daily so that helped. Sites are all gravel and dirt. Only concrete was the little road in and out. This park has the location going for it as it's the best one to use if you are going to do South Yosemite activities and Bass Lake for boating and swimming. I liked being in the town of Oakhurst as there was a Starbuck's and a great Railey's Grocery store. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Bakersfield RV Resort, Bakersfield, California

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

The clubhouse area includes a full-service restaurant called The Crest Bar & Grill. They were offering a Father's Day special of steak and scallops that smelled delicious. Check in was great and we were escorted to our site which was all-concrete and spacious enough for all our slide-outs. They honor the Good Sam discount here. The pool area was clean and very nice. It was a warm afternoon so we enjoyed a swim and some down time. The restrooms were spacious and very clean. There were over five shower stalls with plenty of room. There is a putting green also and the park is close to Camping World and Walmart if you need to pick anything up. We only stayed one night as we were on our way to Oakhurst. Full timers do occupy spaces at the perimeter of the park but they didn't bother me. I didn't see any loose pets either. WFfi and cable TV all worked fine. I would definitely stay at this park again. We camped at Bakersfield RV Resort in a Motorhome.
