Emerald Valley RV park, Jefferson, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We were disappointed in this park. While the park facility itself was satisfactory, many of the long-term rigs and their sites were trashy, rusty, and very dirty, torn tarps and accumulated junk. They need to clear some of their residents out. Add to that the extreme noise from the busy Interstate 5, and we couldn't wait to leave. We had been very happy to get a full week here because we were late making reservations and the surrounding area parks were fully booked, but we would never stay here again. Staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Sites were very tight, and a bit awkward because the park is terraced on a hill, and the space between sites is steeply inclined. Even though our site was a pull-through, disconnecting the toad was necessary because the site was barely long enough to park the car sideways behind the motor home. Even at that, we had to squeeze the car in to keep it off the road. We camped at Emerald Valley RV park in a Motorhome.

Willamette Valley Vineyards Tasting Room on Enchanted Way is well worth the visit, and it has a beautiful view of the mid Willamette Valley looking toward the coast range.

Thousand Trails - Bend/Sunriver, Bend, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is one of TT's better campgrounds, in my opinion. Spacious sites, most near level, abundant amenities in satisfactory condition. We were there before high season, the pool wasn't open yet and was pretty nasty looking. The spa could have used a cleaning, too. Staff was very polite and helpful. Much of the campground had flooded in the hard winter, and was still muddy and puddling; therefore closed. We have learned to call ahead and discover conditions prior to going to TT parks to avoid bad surprises. We picked a site near the brand new restroom in E loop, and it had only one toilet and one shower...hmm...in season it will be very crowded. A portable electric heater provided warmth in the very small building. We were able to use our satellite, but it is very site-dependent because most of the sites are heavily wooded. We camped at Thousand Trails - Bend/Sunriver in a Motorhome.

Likely Place RV & Golf Resort, Likely, California

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here on recommendation of friends. The golf course makes it worth a trip. Course was good design, excellent fairways and decent greens. Great views. The sites were mostly long pull-throughs, with some back-ins, all gravel, mostly level, good well-located utility hookups. One wonderful feature is the several group sites, with a covered kitchen, tables, and 4 sites surrounding the common area. Convenient short-order grill in the clubhouse with reasonable prices. Enjoyed our stay, and would return if on route. We camped at Likely Place RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Sparks Marina RV Park, Sparks, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Wowie! Beautiful, well designed, well located, neat and clean. While sites are a little close together, there is plenty of room for slides. Just enough room for the TOAD, and TOADS at some sites stuck out in the road just a bit, but didn't pose a problem. Interior roads are asphalt, parking pads are concrete, and outdoor space is beautiful, sturdy fake grass. Looks and feels wonderful. Clean grated picnic tables at each site, and room for lawn chairs, etc. Restrooms/showers could not be better appointed, including some of the best handicap facilities I've seen in an RV park. Pool and spa weren't open while we were here, but looked great, as did the communal fire pit and barbecue/picnic area. Well located to I-80, easy in and out. Good utilities. Wi-Fi worked perfectly, and strong. We were very happy here and extended our stay. We'll be back for sure. We camped at Sparks Marina RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beatty RV Park, Beatty, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed 3 nights in a 38' motor home while we visited Death Valley NP and rested from long trip. As other reviewers note, this is a very basic graveled park, and has a somewhat awkward parking arrangement, with two rows. The front row has pull thru sites (must drive thru back row to get to them.) Back row noses in very close to the back of the front row, and must back out to leave unless the spot in the front row is vacant. Some permanent residents with relatively neat and clean sites. Staff friendly. Restroom/shower combos were clean. Small laundry room (didn't use) open 24 hours. Game room included library, tv (didn't use), and older pool table. Although traffic moves on the highway, the noise is not too disturbing. Quiet, pleasant stay. Nothing to do in Beatty. Town looks like it is quickly closing down. We camped at Beatty RV Park in a Motorhome.

Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort), Sun City, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here six months from October thru March. This was our second time here, and we were even more happy with our stay this time than last. While this is an older park, it has full amenities and activities for the active adult, and RV'ers are welcomed by the permanent residents. It is one of the friendliest parks we've ever been in. The sites are quite spacious. We love it here and have already reserved next winter's stay. It is great for a shorter stopover as well. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.

Canyon Motel & RV Park, Williams, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We made this Saturday night reservation during busy season on the same day, and snagged one of the very few remaining spots on a busy Grand Canyon weekend. About 1/2 of the sites are pull through, 1/2 backin, many plenty long enough for our big rig and toad. This is a great PA price for FHU, and it is very close to downtown Williams, making shopping and dining really easy. It's also located close to Bearizona. The staff are quite friendly and very efficient. At the same time there are a lot of "No" signs posted around the property. No parking, no stopping, do not drive here, etc. which always adds a bit of an edge to a stay. Because we had plans to do something on the morning of our departure that required us to leave our motorhome somewhere until noon, with a checkout time of 11:00 a.m., we asked if we could park our rig in their spacious and virtually empty car parking lot, or in their virtually empty storage lot for that one hour. We could, for $8. That irritated me. It wasn't like we were asking to leave it for a full day of sight seeing. WIFI was very strong and reliable. We would stay here again at the PA rate. We camped at Canyon Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

OK RV Park, Holbrook, Arizona

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

This was a second stay at this RV park, the last being 2 years ago. If consistency counted, this park would score a perfect 100. Roads are wide and well marked (better than almost any other park we've been in.) Spaces are all pull through, alternating direction, and quite long (approx 70 feet) so, while spaces are narrow, you have the feeling of additional space because of the empty 15 feet or so of your neighbors' spaces on either side of you. Many have a concrete patio, although ours did not for some reason. Interior roads are a mix of pavement and gravel, and sites are all gravel and almost perfectly level. The park is clean, the facilities a bit dated, but clean, well stocked and functional. WIFI worked great for us. Verizon coverage was okay. Dumpsters are placed around the park, bathrooms, showers and laundry within an easy walk. At the back of the park is a trailer park/manufactured home community. Residents seemed pleasant, kept to themselves, and most properties were well maintained. This property is easy on/off I-40 E or W, with all services an easy, short drive. Well located for Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Several chain restaurants nearby, as well as gas, repair, etc. We enjoyed this stay as much as we did our first stay and would definitely stop here again. We camped at OK RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sundance RV Park, Cortez, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very well run park with 3 park hosts that rotate schedules. They are out and about the property all day every day, cleaning, raking, monitoring. Called every day to let us know we had mail or packages arriving. Very efficient, very helpful staff. Library exchange, meeting room, group gathering area and cute little dog park. Laundry area clean and neat, as were the bathrooms. Quiet at night. We would definitely return here any time in the area. Strict 5 mph speed limit enforced.

Tips for other Campers:

Located just blocks from core of downtown, all necessary services and restaurants are very close by. Easy drive to Mesa Verde NP, Durango, Hovenweep, etc.

Casita Cortez serves up some of the best, freshest Mexican. Their house Margarita was excellent, and salsa was almost to die for. The Colorado Visitor Center is 1/2 block away, just across the road. Go there to get your tickets for tours at Mesa Verde--you beat the crowds, and get better selection of times, etc. vs. waiting til you arrive at the park with the rest of the crowds.

Ken's Lake - BLM, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed nine nights in the first (lower) section while visiting national parks and Moab. It is about 8 miles south of Moab on Hwy 191, then 3 miles off the road. there are 18 sites in the lower section and maybe 20 or so sites in the upper section. To get from one section to the other, you must drive down a moderately steep slope, immediately changing to an upslope at the bottom. Long fivers and trailers may bottom out making this transition. Bigger motor homes may want to disconnect any towed vehicle before proceeding. Most sites are long and wide, and very well spaced and have iron tables and fire rings (burn ban while we were there, although it seems some people didn't think this rule applied to them. There were pit toilets in each section, and at the lake. Even this late in the year Ken's Lake still had plenty of water for boating/fishing/swimming. DH caught one small Bass one day. Decent swimming beach, although mostly gravel vs. sand. We found the location to be just fine, even though 8 miles out of town, because the drive was easy and fast. Campground was very quiet at night. We saw the ranger every day mid morning as fees were picked up, and sometimes they drove through the park. There were spaces available every night except weekends, when the place filled up on Thursday night. The group sites had 2 corrals. Trash had to be driven from the campground to the Lake because there were no dumpsters in the campground proper. No problem. The trail from the campground to the lake was a pleasant, easy walk, although not handicap accessible. We camped at Ken's Lake - BLM in a Motorhome.

Highlight of our trip was the U-drive T-Rex 4x4 guided tour onto the slickrocks. Highly recommend. Quesadilla Mobilla (open 11-5 daily) was fabulous and inexpensive for lunch/dinner. Village Market had good, fresh food,and some of my favorite things I wasn't able to find elsewhere.

Jones High Country RV, Nephi, Utah

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

We called ahead and left a message to get a reservation. No response. We called the day of, and prior to, our arrival and left a message. No response. We arrived to a note on the locked office saying to go ahead and hookup and leave the fee in the drop box. The fee stated on the office door was $5.00 higher than their website for a FHU. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were clean. The women's bathroom had no handsoap. Utilities for a big rig were located so that in the pull through sites, keeping the TOAD connected, the sewer was way too far away to reach, so we had to disconnect. Our site was not wide enough to put the living room slide out, given where we had to park to reach to sewer. All that being said, however, it was a peaceful, easy in-out, close to freeway FHU stay, and we would consider staying here again, but only for one night if just passing through. We camped at Jones High Country RV in a Motorhome.

Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (NPS Campground) , Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

While the rate reflects a senior pass discount, it is still quite expensive. Considering the alternatives, though, we didn't complain. The location is exceptionally convenient to both Teton and Yellowstone Parks, Jackson, and other points. We saw very few sites, all pullthroughs, that were level, and we had to jockey around in our site to get close enough to level to avoid blocking up and rely only on our automatic levelers. There are convenient short trails from the campground to the lake (we were only about 1/2 block from the lake,) the visitor center, stores and laundry facilities. Trash is picked up daily from convenient dumpster sites. We were there during the Berry Fire, and were told if we were bothered by the smoke or fire, we could leave and get a refund of unused nights. We weren't bothered, and stayed for our full 10 nights. We camped at Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Fort Caspar Campground, Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a one-night stopover, and for that it met our needs. I would not stay longer term without a pretty good reason. Most spaces were occupied by long term workers, and it was basically a very large parking area with hookups. There were plenty of amenities, no pool, with several recreational opportunities, although I didn't see anybody using them. The bathrooms and showers were dated, with inferior construction, and flimsy shower curtains instead of doors in the bathroom stalls. Interior roads were gravel, as well as the sites, with a little dust, but not bad. There were lots of parked vehicles that required careful, but not difficult, navigation. We would consider staying here again if we were just passing through. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

Spearfish City Campground, Spearfish, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a last minute reservation for 2 nights in the busy season, and we were told if we wanted to stay longer (which we did) we could park in the "walk in" section (no hookups.) However, they had a cancellation and called us to say we could move to another FHU site for an additional 2 nights. Very nice of them to remember us and let us know. This is a beautiful campground, green grass, lots of trees, paved interior roads, gravel sites. Our first site was level, our second more of a challenge for leveling, but we managed just fine. Sites are of varying sizes. Not all will handle big rigs easily. Some single sites were arranged in a way that they would be great for 2 or 3 friends camping as a group. With beautiful Spearfish Creek running right around the campground, views and fishing are easy. A short walk to the fish hatchery for an interesting tour, and to the large adjacent public park. We really liked it here and would return in a heartbeat.

Don't use your GPS for directions. Ours took us on a route which dead ended at the South end of the park. We had to go back out to main road and go into downtown on Main Street before turning to the entrance of the park. We camped at Spearfish City Campground in a Motorhome.

Creekside Mountain RV Park, Hill City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects one night at PA rate of $20, 5 others at regular rate of $40. Although there are no amenities or facilities, we thoroughly enjoyed this stay. The owner greeted us as soon as we pulled in and gave us time to get settled before she came back with visitor information and to collect. The grounds were very nice, lush green grass at most sites, with an easy, short trail leading to the Mickelson trail. Well located for visiting Custer State Park, Needles Highway, Keystone, Hill City, etc. Signage on the highway is hard to spot, but easy in, easy out, with level sites and good utilities. We would stay here again, even though there are no amenities--who needs them in the Black Hills, anyway? You're gone all day every day. So this is a great value. The owner was kind enough to collect our mail from the post office and deliver it while we were there. We camped at Creekside Mountain RV Park in a Motorhome.
