Life Northwest RV & Lodging (formerly River Life Resort), Harrisburg, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have said, the parking pads are cracked (probably due to lack of rebar). Being built on ex-farm land, it's not too surprising. Virtually all the pads have cracks in them, but very few are unusable because of it. I only saw three that I wouldn't be willing to park in, if my rig fit. Some did have gravel filling in the depressions in the concrete. Otherwise, the area was well kept and the lawns between sites were mowed weekly. There are zero trees, fire pits or picnic tables. On site propane sales were the cheapest I found anywhere ($2.25/gal). There was construction going on that eliminated the use of many of the pull-through sites. Most will be permanently eliminated since the church being built is going on them. Still, the park was never full while we were there for a week and there were always pull through sites available during that time. Staff was friendly. We would stay again, if we were in the area. The reason it went into bankruptcy earlier is probably due to being so far out of the way from freeway access. We camped at Life Northwest RV & Lodging (formerly River Life Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Albany / Corvallis KOA, Albany, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a typical, reasonably well kept KOA, but the roads and parking sites were relatively narrow. We had to jockey around to get squared up and set in our site. As with all KOA's, in my opinion, the price was high compared to comparable amenities at other commercial parks. Being near a river, this park has had flooding problems at times and they have installed drainage ditches at the exits of the site rows. They filled them with rather large (2") stone, which prevents them from compacting and plugging the ditches, but they also move out from under your tires as you pull through them, forcing you to pull through a ditch when leaving. We camped at Albany / Corvallis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The pool is closed for the winter, but the price remains high. It costs $2 to play miniature golf on their course.

Puyallup Fair Grounds, Puyallup, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 4 weeks. As others have said, this is a grass field with gravel roads and full hook-ups. It does get wet and soft during the potential incessant rains that can occur in the Seattle area. We were able to find a site that had more gravel than any of the others, so we had no problem pulling out when we had too, but we did see one rig that had to be pulled out by a tow truck. The office personnel admitted that tow-outs are not uncommon during the rainy season. We could hear the trains that run about 6 blocks away, but it was tolerable. Only one parking area has heat tape on the water spigots, so they turn the water off to all other sites when the temperature is expected to drop below freezing. The location was convenient for us and we would stay again. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Maryhill State Park, Goldendale, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

A well kept state park. Not very large but with full hook-ups. The rates are dependent on the particular site ("popular" sites are more expensive) and the day of the week ($3/day cheaper for mid week stays). Yes there is a watering schedule and it clearly states when each site will be watered and to clear your stuff off the watered area. The trains go by a couple of times an hour, on average. Only once did we hear one blow their whistle. Less well-insulated RV's may find it annoying. Highway noise was no worse than other parks situated near US Highways. The commercial campground next to the park has much closer-together sites. We camped at Maryhill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Farewell Bend State Recreation Area, Huntington, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

A beautiful park that is well maintained. Open all year, though only one loop remains open during the winter (starting November). We stayed for two nights on our way to Seattle. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Village of Trees RV Resort, Declo, Idaho

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

The park was clean and well maintained. Check-in was efficient and a guide lead us to our site. There is considerable road noise due to the park being next to I-84. It was tolerable but annoying. They apparently try to put you in sites farther from the freeway, when they are available. Though "Pet Friendly" they exclude Pit Bull, Rottweiler, and Doberman breeds. The park is no longer a Passport America member. We stayed for only 1 night. If we had to stop in this area, we would probably stay here again, based on the looks of the RV parks in the adjacent towns. We camped at Village of Trees RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Caspar Campground, Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the few parks in Casper that I could contact by phone and was actually open at this time of year. Pleasant owners/operators. Helpful in finding the park (it's tucked behind the Fort Caspar Museum and you have to take the museum entrance to get there. We spent a VERY quite night here. Lots of long term workers in the back-in sites around the edges, but many large pull-thrus in the center. Roads and traffic forced careful driving with a 40 foot fifth wheel. Would stay again. Trees around the edges of park. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Triple J RV Park, Russell, Kansas

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the Passport America rate, including tax and 50 amp fee. Stayed one night. Friendly, helpful host. The first site we were going to be in had partially blocked access to a rig our length, by a neighboring site's car. Host immediately led us to a different site that we easily fit into. Gravel roads and pads. Grass between pads. They are expanding and building additional pads to the north of the existing sites. Some long term tenants. Good place for an overnight stay. We camped at Triple J RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
