About DiplomatTraveler

We travel in a 2006 Monaco Diplomat 40PDQ with four slides and tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee; overall length about 60'. It is important to have a safe place to spend the night; it's okay if the park is old and a bit worn out. We're more concerned about trees overgrowing the site. We're not looking for frills and we don't need someone planning every hour of our day. Our rig is our home; we use our own bathroom and laundry.

Monte Square RV Park, Montesano, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a month, thus the $17 cost. Price for a month was $480, includes electricity. The park is all gravel, and about 75% full of seasonal and long-term residents. Residents in the park are required to keep their sites clean. You can wash your car and RV here without a fee. Pull through and back in sites with room to park your second vehicle along side or in front, depending on length of RV. Sewer hookups are located at the extreme rear of the site and may require multiple lengths of hose to reach the inlet. Currently, you check in at the motel office; though that could change as there's talk of a new office building to be located within the park itself. There's a gas station, restaurant, and coffee kiosk in front. Yes, the trains go through, about 3-4 times a day, no set schedule, and the tracks are very close. We camped at Monte Square RV Park in a Motorhome.

Definitely check out Savory Faire (315 W. Pioneer) for breakfast, lunch, and drinks. Dennis Company Hardware and General Store (413 W. Pioneer) has RV supplies (including sewer hose!). The local library has an ongoing book sale if you are in need of a good read. The Organics 101 Market Juice and Smoothie Bar (315 S. Main) is an easy walk.

Sandy Riverfront RV Resort, Troutdale, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great park located along the Sandy River. Prices will vary by type of site ($48-55) - pull through, back in along the river, and back in along the creek. All sites and roadways are paved. The park is kept very clean; you can wash your car and RV here without a fee. There are several long-term residents here; the wait list for 30 day sites is over 100 persons. Stays are currently limited to 21 days. Make your reservations way in advance during the summer months. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cummins Northwest Coach Care, Coburg, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

As others have noted, this is not a public campground. It is for those who are in for service at Cummins. There's 6 sites, all paved, and room to park your tow in front or off to the side in front of the office. This parking is first come, first served. If there are chairs, cones, or hoses left in the site, be polite and do not take it - that coach is in for service. Check in with the receptionist at the office, prior to parking in any site. Restrooms in the office area are clean. The gates lock at night, so be sure to get the access code if needed. We camped at Cummins Northwest Coach Care in a Motorhome.

Armitage Park , Eugene, Oregon

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

This park is part of the Lane County park system. It appears to be well maintained and clean. Roadways and sites are paved. Most sites are back in with a few parallel-to-the-road, pull through sites. It appears all sites are full hookups with 30/50 amps. If reserving online, add $10 transaction fee. Office hours are as noted by other reviewers. Check-in is noted at 2pm, but the office closes at 2pm. We checked into the office, but really didn't need to as we had our reservation and knew the site number we had reserved. You'll need to see the camphost to get code numbers for bathrooms and laundry if you plan to use them. We didn't have any problems with non-campers as mentioned in previous reviews. This was our second stay and we will stay here again. We camped at Armitage Park in a Motorhome.

Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort, Sisters, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park located on a super busy road between Bend and Sisters, next to the Sisters Rodeo grounds. Park is well maintained, clean, and except for some road noise, fairly quiet. A staff member will provide guidance to your site. All roads and sites are paved. Most sites are pull through with a few back ins. The pull in sites are around the lake. We were told the price is the same for any site. We appreciate the staff's help in relocating us from a site with a very narrow footprint, to one with much more space on all sides. RV supplies, food, snacks, gifts, clothing items, wines, etc. are all available in the office building. The book exchange is located in the laundry room. Pool and hot tub looked clean and inviting. The lake provides opportunities for fishing for registered guests only - daily and seasonal rates apply. We camped at Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Burns RV Park, Burns, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely park on the East end of Burns. There's a mix of pull through and back in sites. The back row pull through sites will hold the longest of rigs with tows without unhooking. There's a concrete patio with picnic table, a nice green space between rigs, and a large shade tree between most sites. Roadways and sites are gravel. There's a small store in the office that carries Oregon wines, and during the season, has espresso drinks and pastries. Owners are very friendly and have lots of information on the area. Many travelers use this as there base for exploring Malheur Refuge and the surrounding area. Make reservations! The park filled up most every night during our three day stay.

There's so much to see and do here. Take the time to drive out to Malheur Wildlife Refuge; the museum is very informative. Gourmet and Gadgets is a great kitchen shop - one of the best we've seen in all our travels (340 N. Broadway). Bella Java, 314 N. Broadway, works great for a coffee/tea/lunch break. El Toreo, 239 N. Broadway, for a good Mexican restaurant. There are many geocaches in the area, including a night caching one in the cemetery.

A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park), Baker City, Oregon

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

This is an older park with many full size trees so lots of shade throughout. There's a mix of back in and pull through sites, with most of the back in sites occupied by permanent residents. There's a mix of full hookup, electric only, and water and electric only (prices vary). The roads are paved; sites are gravel with a green space between rigs. We had to re-position the MH for the electric pedestal as it is placed toward the front of the site. Verizon cell and MiFi were okay. We'd stay here again.

Bruneau Dunes State Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This state park has two campgrounds, both with 30/50 amp service and water; no sewer. There is a dump site located near both campgrounds. We camped in Eagle Cove, a pull through end-of-the-road site, with a nice green belt & tree next to patio. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. There's a nice sized, gravel patio area with picnic table and fire ring. We did not use the restrooms, but a walk through showed them to be clean. There are volunteer camp hosts and work campers keeping the park clean. When reserving online, add $10 for transaction fee. There's a $5/per day fee for the tow vehicle. Monday through Thursday, seniors get 50% off of camping fee. The visitor center has a nice display with information on the area and wildlife. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely city RV park with a mix of back in and pull through sites. Sites are long and wide with plenty of room between neighbors. Road ways are paved; sites are gravel. There's a concrete patio area with picnic table and BBQ grill and plenty of room to park an unhitched tow. Restrooms are located in the City Park area to the front of the RV park. There's a children's play area located there as well. A walking trail takes you along the river and into the local arboretum. The camp host will provide the WiFi password and code for the bathroom/shower. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Heyburn Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Visit Gossner's Magic Valley Chalet, the local cheese factory located across the street from the park. It is within walking distance.

Greys River Cove RV Park, Alpine, Wyoming

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

A very basic RV park, with a mix of pull through and back in sites. All roads and sites are a mix of gravel & dirt. Most of the back in sites are taken by full-timers. The showers and bathrooms were closed during our stay, thus the lower price. We checked in through the tavern; no host on duty. The park is quiet and clean. Sites are very narrow, about 20' wide. Some big rigs could have trouble turning into the site. We had snow and rain during our two day stay; the roads and sites were very muddy. The cafe across the street was good, and yes, it closes at 3pm. There are a couple of other restaurants just down the road from the park. Grand Teton NP and Jackson are about 35 minutes away. Alpine can serve as a base for visiting as the prices are lower. Traffic in and around Jackson and the park has increased tremendously; so being further away can make a difference. We camped at Greys River Cove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds), Rock Springs, Wyoming

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

There are 1,000+ sites in this fairgrounds campground; only about half of them are open at this time (late April). Sites are $25, add $3 for tax. Check with the caretaker upon arriving at park. If he isn't available, we found you can take a site and check back later to pay. All roadways and sites are gravel and some sites are more level than others. There are only about 7 RVs in the park tonight even with an event ongoing in the center. Be sure to call the office for reservations or check online as there can be very large events here. All sites are back in and spacing is for two rigs per fenced section (some sections have 4 sites). Be prepared for a long reach for power, water, and sewer. We stretched 30'; it will be different for other rigs. Being self contained (and using it) is a must, as there is only one restroom/shower building for all these sites. Not a problem on days like today, but if the park is full, it seems there would be lines. We've stayed here before and we'll stay here again. One last note, the winds can be very strong in this part of Wyoming. Be cautious of your awning. Most all services are available in Rock Springs. We enjoyed exploring the Historic Downtown section of the city. We camped at Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is a good park for one night or several. There's easy access off I-80 and plenty of room to maneuver big rigs. Most all sites are pull through and long enough so you don't have to unhitch. We chose a non-cable site; cable sites cost a bit more. The park is all gravel and utilities are good. Verizon cell and MiFi had a strong signal. We weren't bothered by road noise and, fortunately, there was no wind. There is a picnic table at each site. Book exchange is located in the office. We will stay here again.

St. Vrain State Park, Longmont, Colorado

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This review is for the full hookup, 30/50 amp sites. The roads are all gravel. Sites, which are mostly parallel-to-the-road pull throughs, have a concrete slab for the RV and a gravel patio area with covered picnic table and fire pit. These sites are very spacious. If you make your reservations online, add $10 for the transaction fee. Add an additional $7 per day for the park entrance fee payable when you arrive. Highway noise may be an issue for some. Firewood was $5 bundle; about one night's fire. We would stay here again. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Pueblo State Park, Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This State Park has electricity only. There is a covered picnic table and fire ring at each site. Sites are paved and some definitely more level than others. Pull through sites are long enough for our 40' RV with tow, though the driveway was almost too narrow. In planning your trip, if you make reservations online, add in $10 for the transaction fee and another $7 for the daily park fee when you check in. We paid a total of $41 for this electric only site; not a good value in our minds. Fresh water is available at the dump site. There is a water spigot in front of site 24, so I'm guessing there's others throughout the park. We would not stay here again. We camped at Lake Pueblo State Park in a Motorhome.

Raton KOA, Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older park that is great for one or several nights to explore the region. The park is all gravel with pull through and back in sites. The pull through sites will accommodate the longest RVs and their tow vehicles without unhitching. Most sites are back to back, so they can become tight if multiple slides are out. There's a small camper store with snacks, a few RV supplies, and fishing tackle. The book exchange is located in the main building's laundry area. A second laundry area is closed for the season. Those with pets will appreciate the enclosed pet area. We will stay here again the next time we pass through the area. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.
