Angel Nest Retreat, Eagle Nest, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Right off highway, plenty of room to navigate and get into space for big rigs. Just a large parking area but with nice, open view of surrounding area. Short walk to eagles nest state park and lake. Limited cell service but had internet access thru our mi-fi. (Verizon). We camped at Angel Nest Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Arroyo Hondo, Orilla Verde Rec Area - BLM, Pilar, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Small campground, 8 or 9 sites overall. Possibly 3 to fit rigs over 35' or so. these 3 sites were all pull thrus. Quiet park. Absolutely no cell service. Near road but little traffic. Didn't use showers but are pay, $1 for 4 minutes. About 1/2 mile away is the Pilar campground which has sites more suited to bigger rigs but no shade. We camped at Arroyo Hondo, Orilla Verde Rec Area - BLM in a Fifth Wheel.

Taos is about 18 miles away. Very nice visitor center when you come into town. Used seating there for internet access. Trail across highway which connects the several campgrounds along the highway. Nice. Easy although a short climb up hill to access.

Tailrace Left Campground COE, Fort Thompson, South Dakota

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

Large, level pull thru sites, adequate, grassy space between sites. Below dam, very pleasant. Remote. There is a small grocery in Fort Thompson which is part of an Indian Reservation, also a casino if that suits you. Gotta love the COE. We camped at Tailrace Left Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty remote area. About 18 miles to Chamberlain which has a nice visitors center with a Lewis & Clark informational display. It's located near a spot Lewis and Clark camped. Nearer to the campground is a location called the "narrows", I think we found it but were unable to access due to cultural rules in place on reservation. The big bend of the river created a short distance which Lewis walked as the boats traveled 30 miles on the river.

Cedar Pass Campground (NPS Campground), Interior, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Open and sunny, sites are wide spots in road to pull over and alongside the paved road. Ok but a feeling of being in the street. Park ran by a concessionaire and was given a discount for federal pass but not 50 % like typical. Can be windy. Views of Badland peaks. We camped at Cedar Pass Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Our 5th wheel is 35 feet and for the space we were in there wasn't room for truck. No designated overflow parking sites so put truck near dumpster at restroom, no big deal. Left one of our slides in as felt it was sticking unnecessarily into road.

Shell Campground, Shell, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Shell is barely a wide spot in the road so it is nice and quiet even with being right off the highway. Was an OK spot for an overnight. Just feel not a lot for the price (maybe that's just me). We camped at Shell Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rainbow Point Campground (USFS), West Yellowstone, Montana

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

We selected a site with no hook ups. Loop B was closed, that left 3 other loops. Some sites have electric available and there is a water faucet to fill up with as you pull in. Off the highway 3 mi pavement plus 2 mile gravel road, no problem. Total 10 mi to west entrance of Yellowstone. Camp hosts were efficient and pleasant. Cell service spotty but near the lake shore got a decent signal. We camped at Rainbow Point Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Yellowstone park was disappointing to me. Unique sights to see but so massive and crowded. We drove the south loop first day (Old Faithful) and north loop the second day. Total of approximately 150 mi each day. Scrambling from one parking spot to next and hoping to find a space, became tiring. Good to see Yellowstone but once is enough for me.

Jim & Mary's RV Park, Missoula, Montana

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

OK park, rating it as average because nothing stands out to me. Spaces not to tight but close to each other, sites were level and ez to get to. Large truck stop at exits to fuel up. (not so close to create noise) Would stay here again but probably as a one night stay. We camped at Jim & Mary's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sahara Creek DNR Horse Camp, Ashford, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

If you're ok with no hookups, this is an excellent choice. Pit toilets. We were there midweek and only two other campers, guess total number of sites 20 to 25. Maybe different on week ends. Washington parks pass fee area but didn't see a pay slot otherwise. Large pull through sites, level, we were able to get satellite but probably not at most sites, cell service unavailable. Had some concerns prior to arriving about road if there was rain but no problem, compacted gravel roads and sites. 2 miles from Ashford and pretty near Rainier NP. We camped at Sahara Creek DNR Horse Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Rainier National Park. We did Longmire one day and Paradise the next. To see other areas of park from this location would be a lot of driving. Mt. Rainier is impressive. Grove of the Patriarchs worth visiting. Nice area.

Riverview RV Park & Storage, Forks, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Friendly service. Newer facility, pull through or back in's available. Sites close but not squished together. My only complaint would be the price, seemed expensive. No hook up sites were available for about half the price but we were unaware of this. Another park right across the road was about half the cost although not as accommodating for larger rigs. We camped at Riverview RV Park & Storage in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Continuing to the ocean to La Push was nice. Nice beach at harbor. Believe we also did Beach #3 (they're numbered with #1 at the bay), very pretty. Also did trip to Cape Flattery, fabulous scenery. Be aware the Macah tribe charges $10 for pass to visit the site. Fair value, I suppose. Pass is good for 1 year I think which makes you feel that they could do a 1 week or 3 day pass for something less.

Thousand Trails - Oceana, Ocean City, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Nothing unique about this park. More than half of it is out of commission due to a bridge being blocked. A short trail to ocean was nice. Very unremarkable for a TT park but no major faults. Concerning the tire spikes for coming in the wrong way: 3/4 of the width the spikes are not sticking up but one section of the device is still working and could get you. The "entrance" driveway brings you to a gate and attendant shack. We camped at Thousand Trails - Oceana in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails - Pacific City, Cloverdale, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Narrow and rough roads, many potholes and blind corners. Confusing road configuration, actually had someone stop and ask me for directions to get back to park entrance. Some spaces are pretty tight and many are occupied full time by members. Had to search for a suitable space for 35' 5th wheel so wouldn't say it was particularly big rig friendly. Nice swimming pool and club house. No WiFi or Verizon signal, and we were unable to get satellite from our site. Probably would not camp here again even though we are 1000 Trails members. We camped at Thousand Trails - Pacific City in a Fifth Wheel.

Scenic area. Had a good pizza in Pacific City, don't recall restaurant name but on east side of hwy across from beach access. Nice trail at Lookout Cape but was foggy and muddy the day we tried it. Went to Air Museum near Tillabrook, was interesting. WW2 blimps housed in this very large hangar, claims to be largest free standing building in world. Would recommend a visit although the plane collection wasn't that extensive or unique the building itself is cool.

Rockaway Beach RV Park, Rockaway Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Not previously listed in rvparkreviews but is listed in Passport America catalog. At the PA rate it is a reasonable stop for a night or two. At full price not a particularly good value. Most of park is occupied by full timers, I estimate maybe 6 to 8 sites available for overnighters. Not really big rig friendly although the site at end of row fit our 35' 5th wheel. Block off Hwy 101, another block to beach. Walking distance to downtown and city is a nice ocean town atmosphere. Can be a challenge to find an opening along coast during summer, its a place to be for a few nights. Would stop here again. We camped at Rockaway Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Within a short drive north several scenic attractions. Short sand beach, Tug Beach and view pullovers. City areas along here can have heavy traffic and wouldn't try pulling RV in some areas. We spent an hour extremely frustrated trying to go the length of Seaside, OR. Awful and that was on 101, downtown was a nightmare. And again as we made our way south, the northbound lanes were backed up miles. Won't go out of our way to visit this area again but it is very pretty.

Three Rivers Casino, Florence, Oregon

Large parking lot at casino. Far enough away to be out of traffic. Room for quite a few RV's, probably 30 or so. Boondocking, sunny spots good for solar. Paved. The sites along outside perimeter could be considered pull thru.

Initially concerned about unhooking truck and being away, was told that was ok, just not away overnight. We camped at Three Rivers Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Gravel roads, a bit meandering and a little tight but not bad. Shady although we were fortunate enough to pick a site where we could get satellite. Pool, clubhouse. Some sites could feel a bit cramped as they are narrow and set in between trees. Nice park though.

One leg of our 50A was missing, used the 30A instead. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice. Tall trees. Our site was in first loop to left as you come in. Spacious sites but were nearest the road and was quite a bit of traffic noise until around 9pm. Even with this it was just a nice site, nice park. To much shade for our Tailgater satellite. We camped at Schwarz Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.
