We've stayed here before but downgraded it 1 point due to the owners' display of political views. (I don't care about your politics, don't shove it in my face.) It's still expensive for an overnight stay but the clean bathrooms/showers, convenient laundry, smoking ban and adults only policy make it somewhat acceptable.

This park is located directly across the road from Love's Travel Stop. There are 18-wheelers coming and going until late at night. The noise, combined with the bright lights, gets old. I wouldn't want to be here more than one day. There was a horse trailer parked next to us that seemed to attract flies. Sewer connection plus 20 and 30 amp electricity. Power was stable and the pedestal was clean.

This is CG is dry camping with flush toilets and water spigots, in the middle of northern AZ pines. The whole CG is very clean but the volcanic cinder tracks into the motorhome at every opportunity. There are smaller pull-through sites along the side of the main drive as well as larger back in sites radiating out. Our pull-though was very level and trees were cut back to clear our roof. The only downside is that there's absolutely no cell signal. Driving 2 miles toward Highway 89 will get you usable signals.

Still one of our favorite NF CGs. We don't stay at the Group Area per se, but the individual campsites are in the same area, just a different loop. This year, we found that we get slightly better cell coverage at the northwest end of the CG, near the host.

Great place for an overnight stop. Transient spaces are up front, separated from the long term residents. Easy access from I-40 and interior roads are wide and well maintained. Utility pedestal was cleanest and nicest I've ever seen. The railroad tracks can be pretty noisy when the trains roar by blowing their horns. There's a $50 gate card deposit in case you drive away with their card. We didn't have any problems getting our deposit back.

This is an odd little park that's more of an experiment by San Mateo County Parks & Recreation. There are four (4) sites marked off along the edge of a parking lot with a 20 amp pedestal and a water spigot. The dump station is at the Sheriff's Shooting Range about 1/2 mile away and it could be a hassle to get in close when they're training. First, the positives. It's right on the bay as in, if you fall out of bed, you might drown! It's very well patrolled and transients are gone by 8 PM. There are 3 "pull-in" sites but it would be sketchy if the other sites are occupied. The 4th site is a "back-in." The shower & bathroom facilities are shared with other park users such as wind surfers, kayakers, and paddle boarders. They are closed and locked by about 7 PM and don't open again until 7 AM. There are some negatives for such picturesque "campsites." The spaces are all roughly east-west orientation with the utilities on the south side. However, most people tend to pull in facing east which puts the water and electric cord on the side of the RV away from the pedestals, which, since there aren't any signs, one can park whichever way one desires but it creates some interesting issues. There are "rules" posted at each site but they're more like guidelines. All in all, one should chill and adopt a laissez-faire attitude while staying at Coyote Point. After all, this is San Francisco. SFO is right across the bay but the jet noise wasn't noticeable due to the prevailing off shore winds. Speaking of winds, in July, it was "rockin' & rollin'" the motorhome in the afternoons and evenings.

I'm going to be as fair as I can for a campground the guy in the next site called, "The Campground from Hell." First, the positives: The bathrooms and showers weren't gross, just old and shabby. The staff weren't rude, just not very helpful. On a negative note, just getting into the campground can be a chore due to a narrow, 2 lane driveway that new arrivals park on to register. If you're already registered, you drive on the opposite side of the drive and hope no one is going the other way. The narrow, tight sites had mixed full hookup, partial hookups, and tents in the same area. The guy in a tent site across from us ran his LOUD, ancient generator for most of the day and evening. Dog owners, per usual, let their dogs do their business on others' sites rather than the provided the dog run. The interior roads are narrow, tight and not well marked. Many units were rentals with first time or, at best, once per year campers totally oblivious to common campground etiquette. People regularly cut through our site. This is where grandparents take grandkids and allow them to wreak havoc, load them up with sugar and buy them a puppy before returning them to their parents as revenge. The WiFi was too anemic and throttled to be of any use. There were flies everywhere, probably from the cows next door. The dogs at the house next to the campground barked, howled and were out of control. To be perfectly fair, kids between 6 to 10 love this place because everything is geared toward them. As a retirees with no grandkids, we would never stay here again.

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.
