This is basically a fishing camp. Fisher (wo)men (fisherpeople?) will like it here but it wasn't my sort of park. The maintenance guys at this park were among the friendliest and most helpful I've encountered. RV park maintenance isn't known to attract friendly, helpful employees so these guys really stood out. The older couple at the front desk were also very friendly and helpful. The restroom/shower facilities were old and not cleaned more than once a week (same cigarette ashes on floor for days.) Fortunately, most of the residents didn't trash the facilities. The utility posts were covered in cobwebs, a personal "ick" factor for me. The biggest downside is the narrow sites. Fortunately, we didn't have anyone on one side for most of our stay but when a 5th wheel pulled in for 2 nights, I felt like a sardine. The wifi is sketchy at best. The signal is strong but they throttle it so it's near impossible to do more that check e-mail and weather forecast. VZN MiFi sort of worked and T-Mo was MIA. Advertised cable channels didn't match what we were able to receive.

This Oregon State Park has real possibilities but also has issues. First, the positives. It's right off the I-5 freeway so access is easy. The park runs alongside the Rogue River so the scenery is beautiful. Many critters and birds abound in the park. The hosts and rangers are helpful and pleasant. On the negative side, being a state park, it has to serve everyone. The homeless have figured out how to game the system and practically live there full time. Some seem to have figured out ways to sneak in late and leave early to evade park fees. No one caused a problem but their makeshift tents are unsightly. The freeway noise can be annoying if you're a light sleeper. At some sites, the ground squirrels have torn up the ground to the point where one could break an ankle. $26 per night for electric and water with no discount for weekly rates seems steep. The rules seem to be guidelines and no one seems too concerned about enforcing them. People brazenly cut through others' sites and the restrooms/showers can look like a frat house bathroom.

Not a whole lot to add. It's boondocking in a casino parking lot. On a positive note, the lot was free, level, clean and randomly patrolled. On the negative side, it may be free but you pay for it by putting up with people who don't particularly "play well with others." Others parked haphazardly, resulting in unsafe conditions, inconvenience and annoyance. For example, in one section most were parked in an east/west orientation when two large Class A motorhomes decided to park north/south, blocking a driveway and limiting access. We lucked out and grabbed a space along the west edge where we could look out over sand dunes and sawgrass.

We stayed here in 2014 when we needed work done on our towed. The RV park has improved since then and appears to be better maintained. We didn't use the restrooms because they're now locked but that's a plus since it keeps the homeless away. The night attendant is a nice young guy who offered to unlock it for us but we declined since we were only staying a few days. Power, water and sewer are all in good shape. A water pressure regulator is a good idea. There's no wifi but cell service is full 4G LTE with VZN or TMo.

There are NO stores or services within 14 miles. There are water spigots in the campground but, during our stay, had signs warning not to drink the water due to some contamination issue. The normal rate is $12/night but we used our America the Beautiful pass and paid $6 at the iron ranger. This is a great place for an overnight if you're on your way north to Klamath Falls or south to Carson City in a motorhome and want a break from the narrow, 2-lane CA Hwy 139. There are 8 well maintained sites, all back-in, that can accommodate motorhomes up to 32 ft. Bigger rigs will probably scrape the roof on the pine branches and find the turn-around at the end a bit tight. The CG is "first come, first served" but not well known so it's not crowded. After the Hwy 139 traffic abates in the evening, it's so dark and quiet that it can be spooky if you're the only ones there. Dogs are allowed on a leash and "deposits" must be picked up, a rule that seems to be regularly flouted by all dog owners.

The Gold Dust Casino's tag line says it all, "In the middle of everywhere!" This is a great casino park. There's nothing fancy but it has everything one needs for a few days or weeks in the Carson City area. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were immaculate. Also, the casino hotel spa and pool is available to RVers although we didn't use them. Rigs longer than 35' may find it tight but the biggest tip is to unhook and hookup outside the park. There's a huge casino parking lot just outside the park but we still watched a number of clueless people block the interior drive to unhook/hookup and then struggle to make the corners. As always my biggest gripe was inconsiderate dog walkers who ignore the provided dog run and let their dogs do their business anywhere but that's not the casino's fault. The casino seems to clean up any messes very quickly.

This is a great RV park but just not our style. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful, the grounds are in immaculate shape and the showers & laundry facilities are super clean. Two trees at our site had branches that needed trimming back. After guiding us to our site, the host immediately came back with loppers and trimmed the branches. One day, the shower hot water was out. The host immediately went over and found the wind had blown out the water heater pilot light. Hot water was restored within 15 minutes. The only downsides for us is that the sites are very close and tight. We could almost "pass the Grey Poupon" between the rigs next to us. Also, about 80% of the park is permanents or semi-permanents. All the rigs are in good condition and there aren't any eyesores but we're not fans of such parks.

This is an old park with some redeeming aspects but otherwise not on our list of places to revisit anytime soon. First the positives: The bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities were clean and functional. After reading past reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. On the negative side, the park could do with selective culling of some pine trees. Our 31' RV barely fit between several trees and we couldn't back in far enough to connect the sewer hose without an extension. There wasn't room for our toad so we parked it in the common area next to our space. The spaces are dirt that got tracked in no matter how careful we were. We lost power for about 20 minutes one night. The worst issue was the pine sap everywhere. It was caked onto the bottom of our shoes, tracked into the RV, on our cat's paws and all over the roof including the solar panel. Each space had a (cracked) concrete patio, a (old, rickety) picnic table and a washer tub as a fire pit. Others may find Pine Cliffs fine for their needs but we were underwhelmed. Alcohol doesn't touch the pine tar. You'll need some sort of solvent like Goof Off or the like. Be sure to arrive with a full propane tank because, as of 5/28/16, they were charging $3.89 per gallon.

Great little county park just a few miles from lots of services, restaurants and stores. It's located in a slight depression so we can't see the homes that are slowly encroaching on the park. There is some traffic noise but it abates after all the commuters get home. The asphalt sees are mostly shaded and have a patio, picnic table and fire ring.

This is a great park for a few days while visiting Yuma or Algodones, MX. It's in an older, lower class neighborhood but, if that bothers you, you're too good for this park anyway. The manager is what makes this park our favorite place to stay when we visit Yuma. She's such a friendly, outgoing person that you want to go back just to see her. We've never used the facilities (restrooms, showers, pool, laundry, etc) but that's not why we stay there. It's convenient to Algodones (15 minutes) as well as a variety of services in Yuma. For the first time, we had a minor problem this year when the kids in the trailer park next door hit our rig with a soccer ball. One word with the manager, and that was the end of that. The only issue with the space is the location of the sewer. Our dump bay is amidships. The sewer connection is at the back of the space. We would need a 25' hose to dump. We find it easier to dump on the way out at the common dump station across from the office.

Positives: The two hosts were friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. Power was clean and water pressure was fine. Water was soft unlike my home in AZ where big rocks fall out of the faucet. Airport noise was negligible and the golfers must be improving because no balls came over the tall netting. The washer and dryer were practically brand new and cost was reasonable. BIG Positive: It's close to everything Monterey. Bus stop is right outside and free trolley downtown runs regularly. Negatives: Big dip at entrance is a tail dragger. We disconnected toad before arrival. On departure, didn't connect until outside park and even removed tow bar and drop, but still dragged skid angle irons. The shower hot water takes forever to get hot (5-8 minutes) which is odd since there are signs everywhere reminding people about CA drought. Each shower probably wastes 20-30 gallons. BIG Negative: Sewer connections require 30' - 35' hose AND run uphill on one side of the park. Whoever designed this should be required to dump all guests' tanks for a year to learn why it's a "crappy" layout. Every space angles down about 6" for every 10' so our 16' wheelbase needed about 10", lifting the front wheels off the ground by 4 inches, not an optimal position.

Great place if you're into RV resorts. We were ahead of schedule so we stayed here for 2 days. If you're staying for more than a night, ask for a site in the lower part of the park, it's quieter. They have 4 level fee structure (Economy, Standard, Deluxe, Premium.) We didn't see much difference between Economy and Standard. Sites are a bit narrow and crowded.

I almost hate to review this place because I'd like to keep it for myself. First of all, it's quiet and isolated but still has good 4G LTE on both VZN and TMo. The pull thru site was a bit tight for a 31' motorhome with toad but it was quiet and isolated. BTW, did I mention it's quiet and isolated? Never saw the host, just paid at "Iron Ranger." Rates are a bit confusing. At the main entrance, it mentions a "Senior Discount" but there's no mention at the CG proper.

Duck Creek is on Boulder Highway, very close to Henderson, NV. The entrance is almost hidden approaching from the north and not a whole lot more visible from the south. Summer in Las Vegas sucks no matter how you cut it. Our back-in site was just barely deep enough for our 30' motorhome and not wide enough to deploy the awning. On the positive side, the showers and restrooms were clean and the park itself is well maintained. The electric power was good, clean and stable at ~118v which is good because the ac was on the whole time. The utility connections are clean and well maintained.

We stopped here on our way from South Dakota to northern AZ. The manager was pleasant and the dirt/gravel, pull through, FHU site was level. The power and water connections were in good working order but the sewer connection was odd to say the least. Sometime in the past, sites 44 thru 48 were changed from north-south orientation to south-north (headed north.) This made it necessary to use the utility connections that had previously been for the site on the opposite side. While this was no big deal for water & electric, the sewer is now 10 ft away. That, in itself, isn't a big deal but the neighbor's sewer is directly opposite our side door. We had leveled and extended our slides before discovering this so I put a cardboard box over the sewer connection to hide it. In the future, we'll be sure to ask for one of the sites between 49 thru 55 where the connections are oriented correctly. Also, in hot weather, sites 49 thru 55 are somewhat shaded by a tall, mature tree between site 48 and 49. Some sites have picnic tables and fire rings while others have nothing. This park could be an 8 if not for this odd quirk.
