About DiplomatTraveler

We are full-timers 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. We're more concerned about trees overgrowing the site. Our RV is our home; we use our own bathroom and laundry.

Desert View RV Resort, Needles, California

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

This is a very nice, desert park with lots of trees. An 8' oleander hedge separates each site from its neighbor providing a nice screen for privacy. Sites have a concrete patio, are gravel, level, and either pull through or back in. All utilities are located about mid-site. One road in the park is paved, the others are gravel. Free Wifi and book/DVD exchange are available in the clubhouse. Our Verizon MiFi worked well. The pool is available year round. Laundry room looked very clean during our walk through; we did not use it. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful with tips on the area. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wine Ridge RV Resort & Cottages, Pahrump, Nevada

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

This is a very nice park with paved roads and gravel sites. All utilities are at the back of the site; be prepared for at least a 30' reach depending on how far back in the site you can park and where the waste outlet is located on your rig. Each row is terraced above the last one, making the back to back sites feel more open. Sites are wide - about 25'. We had a premium back in site that had an extra space next to it called the BBQ area. Two pools, a spa, pickleball court, and horseshoe pit available. The lending library has a nice selection of books and DVDs. There's a coin operated car and RV wash facility. You cannot wash your own rig at your site; must use a pre-approved vendor. This is definitely a snow bird park; make reservations early. We camped at Wine Ridge RV Resort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

Tonopah RV, Tonopah, Nevada

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

As other reviewers have noted, this is a small RV park - 18 sites - located along Highway 6/95 at the west end of town. All sites are gravel, pull through, and long enough that most rigs will not have to unhook. There is some road noise, but not intrusive. This time of year, night temperatures are below freezing and water is shut off to all sites; they will turn it back on for individual sites if you have an insulated water line. Laundry, private showers, and restrooms are available; door code is provided at check-in. Three WiFi stations provide free internet. We used our Verizon MiFi which had a strong signal. A small book exchange is located in the office area. The end site (#18) has a picnic table in the garden area on the left side. We will stay here again when passing through the area. We camped at Tonopah RV in a Motorhome.

Whitney's Bookshelf, 130 S. Main, has a variety of used books in all subjects, including local history and geology. Paperback fiction books are $1.00. This old bookstore is a must stop if you enjoy browsing the shelves. Also, this is a good base for geocachers looking to complete the west end of the ET Highway power trail as well as other power trails in the area.

New Frontier RV Park, Winnemucca, Nevada

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

A good park for one night or several if you're exploring the area. A newer park, you'll find the facilities all in good shape. Roadways are paved as are the long, pull through sites. Back in sites all appear to be gravel. There's a gravel patio area with picnic table between each site. We found the pull through sites to be level and longer than most RVs with tows. It's quite cold these nights in November; unhooking water is a must. The office houses a community center, small store with minimal RV supplies, souvenirs, snacks, and drinks. A walk through the laundry room and bathrooms showed all to be very clean and well maintained. Verizon cell and MiFi had a strong signal. Note: Online reservation/booking fee is $2.00 (added to the bill at check-in). We camped at New Frontier RV Park in a Motorhome.

Burns RV Park, Burns, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second time in this park having traveled through Burns last spring. We really enjoy this privately-owned park for its friendly management, good maintenance, and large pull throughs for big rigs. Any size RV with tow could fit into the long, back row sites without unhooking. The park is closing for the season after tonight (Nov. 11) and will reopen on March 1. The owner told us this afternoon that they will be taking reservations throughout the winter. This area is very popular with travelers visiting SE Oregon and the Malheur Refuge, so definitely call for reservations. Verizon cell and MiFi had a strong signal.

Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort, Sisters, Oregon

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

This is our second time in the park this year. It is still clean, well maintained, and managed. Water is turned off at most sites due to cold weather; permanent residents have been moved into the few rows that still have the water hooked up. We took one of the pull in sites (#77) around the lake at a discounted price ($35) because there was no water hookup. Regular, full hookup price for any site is $50. Good Sam discount brings it to $45. If staying this time of year, make a reservation if you need to have water hookups. Check our review from May 2018 for most information on the park and surrounding area. We camped at Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Port of Newport RV Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a good place to use as a base when exploring Newport and the surrounding area. Park is paved throughout. Sites are level and close together with some grass and shrubs between sites. During our stay in November, there were many empty sites. Laundry facility was very clean ($2.00 wash/$2.00 dry). You'll need the code for access after the office closes. Park is quiet, clean, and well maintained by Port staff; only a few seasonal RVs are in the park at this time. There is a small book exchange and lots of tourism information in the office. Verizon cell and MIFI have strong signals. We camped at Port of Newport RV Park in a Motorhome.

A paved walk path is just outside the park that leads south to the aquarium or go north and explore the estuary area. There is a nice trail along the bay's shoreline that can be accessed from the Hatfield Marine Science Center parking lot. For geocachers, there are several caches located within walking distance.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
