Cove Palisades State Park (Crooked River Campground), Culver, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice state park, easy access for large RV's.
Really enjoyed our stay here, weekends were busy but during the week I think we were one of 8-10 rigs in this campground that probably had 70 or so sites, and 4 of those were occupied by the work campers. Very quiet during the week, we had a row of 15 empty sites to ourselves.

Good Verizon connectivity, AT&T was okay with a booster.

Beautiful views of the Cascade Range and the rivers in the area.

thankful for 50 AMP W/E hookup as we had a few days in the high 90's.

Had to do a bit tree trimming to be able to open our slides.

We've stayed at OR state parks before and find them to be much more big rig friendly than either WA or CA and much more affordable than their neighboring states. We camped at Cove Palisades State Park (Crooked River Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Not a lot of shopping nearby, Redmond had several options and was about a half an hour away.
Local post office accepts General Delivery.
We took a day trip to Bend and had a great time visiting the local breweries and participating in a tour.
AIS decals are required for any boats over 10 feet which meant we did not take our Sea Eagle out, we were only going to be in the state for a week, didn't seem to be a good value to have to pay $22 for a decal.

Lake Siskiyou Beach and Camp, Mount Shasta, California

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We had stayed here 2 years ago for just a couple of nights and wanted to come back again. My initial impression this time was a bit negative, rates increased as of May 23rd from $29/night to $35/night and that wasn't communicated until you checked in. Given that we arrived on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, we didn't have much of a choice but to pay the difference, not exactly an easy time to find anywhere new to stay. Our site was a bit tricky to get into due to a very narrow road, but we were able to back in, backing in on a road going the wrong direction. No one seemed to mind or object. Our site was also the closest to the store / restaurant and could be a bit noisy at times, but during the week was very pleasant.
I think the other loop for RV's that is closer to the boat ramp would be much easier to get a large rig into, the loop closest to the store and restaurant offers FHU but is very tight to get into and out of. We have a 38 ft 5th wheel.
Not sure if we'll stay here again, the 20% rate increase a week before our stay with no warning was a bit aggravating. Yes, they say rates can change at any time but we felt like it was a bait and switch, wait until 6 days before we arrive, right before a holiday weekend and then raise the rates even though we had only made our reservation 5 weeks ahead of time. I'm sure they knew by then they would be raising rates. We camped at Lake Siskiyou Beach and Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lake Siskiyou and the views of Mount Shasta are why we returned and we had a wonderful time using our Sea Eagle on the lake a couple of times, renting paddleboards one time. While at first we didn't like the location of site right across from the restaurant, it became very convenient one evening when we ordered a pizza to go.
Good Verizon coverage without our booster, AT&T improved greatly with the booster.
The employees we interacted with were all very enthusiastic about the park.

Lake Mead RV Village, Boulder City, Nevada

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

Love the lakeside view and felt it was worth the extra $$ over the standard sites which were very close together. the Lakeside sites are much larger than the sites that are only $10 less. Overall it's a fairly expensive park but you are paying for the location. Good Verizon coverage for data and cell. We camped at Lake Mead RV Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

FHU sites within the National Park. Reasonably well spaced sites, loved sharing the campground with the elk in the area! Reasonable Verizon data / cell connections. Prices have increased since we originally reserved our spot, but it's still worth it to be right in the park and minimize driving back and forth.

We have stayed here before and really enjoyed this park. This time we had a "pull thru" site which is really a "pull off" site, nothing to separate you from the road once you are parked. Prefer the back in sites for longer stays.

Kartchner Caverns State Park, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Another nice AZ state park with plenty of room for the big rigs. Good connectivity with Verizon, using a booster. Marginal without the booster.
Great place to stay to explore the Caverns, nearby Tombstone and other points of interest in the area. Preferred the outside, back in sites to the pull thrus, more privacy, larger sites. We camped at Kartchner Caverns State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Scottsdale, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is beautiful, well kept, large sites, no close neighbors, beautiful views. We've stayed here before and I'm sure we'll be back.

Sites easily can hold the big rigs, the ones that are at a 90 degree entrance from the road are a little tricky to back a large 5th wheel into due to where the park has some concrete barriers, narrow road and a ditch on one side of the road. Unfortunately we arrived in the dark so it was a little more time consuming than usual. We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Patagonia Lake State Park, Patagonia, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful park, great location for bird watching. The $5/person fee for the park ranger boat tour is well worth the fee, lots of knowledge shared, etc.
Compared to other AZ state parks that we have stayed in, this one is a LOT more heavily treed which is a little more difficult for big rigs.
The east campground loop is more spacious and sites more spread out than the west campground, but also somewhat smaller site. We camped at Patagonia Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Apache Palms RV Park, Tempe, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We ended up having to cancel our reservation at the last minute due to illness. We've stayed at this park before and while their website states no refunds unless cancelled 14 days in advance, we were given a full refund which was a HUGE relief.

We have stayed here before and will stay again when we're in town for business. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Snowbird RV Park, Fort Mohave, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Park itself is a bit dated, but well kept. A lot of long term or seasonal residents. All the sites around the outside are back in, all interior sites are pull thrus. Sites were very long, plenty of room to park the truck in front or behind the 5th wheel. Spacing within the site was a little tricky due to placement of power pedastal, palm tree and picnic table. Had to be positioned very carefully so we could open all our slides and outside compartments. We had not planned to spend 5 weeks here, but a breakdown enroute and a long wait on parts for the repair resulted in a long stopover. Rate reflects one month and one week, averaged out over 37 nights. Manager was very accommodating due to our circumstances. We camped at Snowbird RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oatmas is a fun town to visit nearby and the Lake Mead NRA is just to the north.

Sites were nicely spaced with plenty of room for parking our truck between our RV and the next site over. Park location was excellent for what we needed for the 2 weeks we were here, loved being right on the Greenbelt trail for bike rides or evening walks.

Tall Chief RV Resort - Thousand Trails, Fall City, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice park with spacious sites. 30 AMP / Water hookups, felt it was very pricey for the accomodations you received, plus the $4/person/day resort fee. For Thousand Trails members, this is a great option right outside of Seattle, but if you're not a member it's very expensive. I'd rate this much higher if the price were more reasonable for just W/E hookups. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

Dungeness Recreation Area Campground, Sequim, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Loved the location and the ranger was very helpful when we checked in. The site we had reserved was one we could have fit into, had the road been wider and no tree in the way to allow access. As it was, it was a very difficult site to get into, while we were taking on water he thought there might be an issue and set aside the last non-reservable site that he thought we could get into. Much easier site to get into. We camped at Dungeness Recreation Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Love staying here and walking on the Dungeness Spit and along the bluff is a "must do" activity. No hookups, solar didn't help much due to heavy forest, but still a lovely location. Reasonable Verizon / AT&T connectivity.
