Fort Bridger RV Camp, Fort Bridger, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Agree with others that this is a hidden gem; lots of grass - a really nice change for Wyoming, very friendly and helpful management, large sites - especially for a private park and reasonable price. Nice to have WiFi although it only worked in the front of our RV, not in the rear. The park is far enough off highway to be quiet, but very convenient, walking distance to the excellent historic Fort Bridger especially the 1 hour guided tour. We camped at Fort Bridger RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Three Island Crossing State Park, Glenns Ferry, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have said, this is a lovely state park with green lawns and lots of shade trees. While only a few have privacy bushes between sites, overall the sites are spacious. Sites 7 - 19 on Wagon loop have at least a partial view of the Snake river. Almost all sites accommodated our 35' motor home. The $ listed by others are correct - except they don't include the fees - $10 for reservation (necessary on weekends), and if you have a tow vehicle an extra $5/night which is not charged to trailers! A little expensive for only 30 amp and no sewer (dump available). Also as mentioned, some of the trees need pruning although I don't recall seeing any more dead trees, we did have a dead branch that scraped our rig on site 22, but they came the next day and removed it so we didn't have a problem leaving. Sites were level in general. Even on the weekend with the camp full, it was quiet and camp host very friendly. Mostly back ins, very few pull thrus. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

Visit the interpretative center and drive (without RV) the short the Oregon Trail byway (ID 84) to the overlook of the 3 islands. Fantastic and an opportunity to walk the sagebrush, etc that the pioneers experienced, including the heat of the summer.

Faria Beach Campground, Ventura, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Arrived mid week, selected dry site, and pulled our motor home in; paid fee and deposited it. Then noticed a rule requiring back in only, no pull in. This is fine for 5ths and trailers but what is the point of being on the ocean if you cannot see it. Since we already in a site near the end without utilities and our neighbors were fine with it, we decided to stay. No problem all afternoon and overnight. Next morning we decided to stay another night, even though new neighbors came in about 7 am, and immediately pulled out a generous supply of beer and hard liquor plus chain smoking about 5' from our rig. Then a ranger more interested in bureaucracy than sense, came and told us that we could not stay there because we had stayed at another Ventura campground about 50 miles away (to see the Reagan Library) and you can't stay at 2 campgrounds without a 7 day absence, even though the total would only be 4 nights. Additionally we would be required to turn around and back in - for ease of leaving in emergencies. The fact that a motor home can leave much quicker than hooking up a trailer, made no difference. Oh, and having neighbors getting drunk and blowing their smoke into your space was OK, no rules against that. We decided to take our business elsewhere. The silver lining is that we found a park on the ocean in a different county that is much nicer, less expensive and where we will definitely return. Normally, we try to follow the rules and be "good, flexible campers" but Ventura's rules made no sense. We have never pulled out like this before. We camped at Faria Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Tapo Canyon Park, Simi Valley, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

As others wrote, very nice little county park at the end of a canyon, so, in general very quiet. Recommend the outer sites for privacy because sites on opposite sides of the "circle" are very close to each other. Camp host couple are very nice and not afraid to tell people to quiet down if necessary. Was disappointed that the park grounds are very small so there are no trails, etc. There is one strenuous 4 mile hike that starts about 2 miles down. Driving to Ronald Reagan Library took about 15 minutes. Paved sites long enough for our 35' motor home but had to park towed car on dirt beside motor home. We camped at Tapo Canyon Park in a Motorhome.

Sky Valley Resort , Desert Hot Springs, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

What a find! Will definitely return. People very friendly with about 1/2 Canadians and 1/2 Americans. Very oriented to park models, but as others said RV sites scattered throughout park. Chapel was excellent and even have a 3 day "Refresh" conference in February that started while we were there. The only negatives: restaurant closed (and park about 12 miles from others and shopping), sites not very level and WiFi very poor. We camped at Sky Valley Resort in a Motorhome.

Enjoy the mineral springs with 1 set for adults only, many activities such as water aerobics through park and other activities through the chapel organization. Enjoyed visiting Cabots museum in Desert Hot Springs and the museum and trail at 1000 Palms. The Palm Springs Canyon near Palm Springs is really awesome.

Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA (formerly Desert Pools RV Resort), Desert Hot Springs, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our 2nd time to stay here, this time for 2 weeks with one week being PassPt Am. Nice park, clean - even rake the sites between occupants, handles big rigs easily, Several times a week lunches or dinners are offered that we enjoyed a couple times, also ice cream sundaes twice a week all for a modest price. Would pass next time on the cinnamon rolls as they were obviously from a "pop em open" carton. The activities director not only plans the activities but she also leads them, 3 - 4 activities a day; we enjoyed the water aerobics. The hot tubs and mineral water are the draw. Don't let appearance deceive you; the mini golf is very difficult. Bathrooms with showers and laundry in back of park very clean. Showers at pools very hard to regulate temperature. Probably won't stay here again because it is official that it will become a KOA, with some minor improvements but mostly price increases. We camped at Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA (formerly Desert Pools RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Buena Vista Aquatic Recreation Area, Taft, California

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful find, close enough to I-5 to be convenient for over night stop, but enough to be very quiet (3-4 miles). Off season and only about 6 other campers. Rate includes $2 senior discount - great price for full hookups. County park so no WiFi or cable. Fun to watch the raccoons but be careful about food outside. Because of the rain, the grass was green. Sites are the semicircle style pull through which was fine for our 35' motor home and toad (didn't unhook), but would take careful selection for a 40' unit. Understand summer weekends are a madhouse and very noisy, with lots of jet skiis and 20 - 30 to a campsite not uncommon. Would definitely come here again in off season or maybe midweek in summer. We camped at Buena Vista Aquatic Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails-Long Beach/NACO, Seaview, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our last stay of an 8 month trip and we thought a 1000 Trail park on the beach would be lovely. Wrong! Potholes everywhere = really rough drive through + had to drive at an angle through a 1 direction barrier strip to leave. The sites are level and some grass, but really close with no privacy between. Technically all are back-in but if you get there 1st, you can pull through the site behind you. Electric is fun - 2 sites share a post so one site has to drag it under (or drive into the site if motor home) and there is only a 30 amp and a 50 amp on each pole. The 1st person gets their pick, not sure what the 2nd unit does if they can only use 30 amp and it is taken! There is only 1 huge dumpster (no recycling), with a lid most people cannot lift and a hand crank to open it that I had to ask a man to help me crank while standing in the mud. Would not go back there and very glad I didn't take them up on the "preferred membership" when we purchased our 35' Motor home. Don't know how previous review said you can see the ocean, it is a good 10 minute walk and even end sites cannot see it. We camped at Thousand Trails-Long Beach/NACO in a Motorhome.

Lewis and Clark RV Park, Stevenson, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Not a lot has changed from previous reviews. An older park, some RVs are obviously long term (not well kept around them) while others are well kept. The short term sites all seem to be pull through w/ water and electric only. I think the sites are very narrow but do have wild shrubs, trees, etc separating the sites for privacy; however, we had trouble putting slide out without hitting a tree and it is very difficult to put chairs, grill , etc out. However, it had been raining when we arrived and we had lots of water on our site. The roads have recent new gravel, but we joked that our door mat might float away. Managers now seem to have regular hours and were friendly and helpful. We camped at Lewis and Clark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Columbia Hills State Park -- Horse Thief Lake, Dallesport, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice little State Park, fairly level sites, #8 is the largest, but most can handle large RVs w/ a little careful parking; everyone used their slides, but were warned not to leave awnings out when away due to wind. Water was cloudy but cleared up fine. Camp host was great. Very glad that other reviewers warned to go to the Horse Thief Lake entrance as there are several park entrances. Lewis and Clark camped here. Guided tours of Petrographs are only on weekends. We camped at Columbia Hills State Park -- Horse Thief Lake in a Motorhome.

LePage Park COE, Rufus, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Another nice COE park. Price w/ NPS Sr Pass, but even $22 would be good price for w/el (dump available). All sites have view of John Day River, great for fishing, summer swimming in protected cove or just enjoying the scenery. Set back enough from highway/RR to mute the worse noise and the hill behind blunts the Columbia River Gorge wind. Spaces were available when here for 1 night in October, but it is small park and only 1 - 2 left by evening. Handles Big Rigs. Would love to stay here again.

Plymouth Park COE, Plymouth, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Yes, this is a very clean COE park with very friendly hosts.. All pull thru sites are level. Good Verizon, no T-mobile. Only 2 cons: 1) cannot see the River from any site and no path to the beach (can see a bit when you walk to the edge; 2) they were having a water emergency which is understandable but should have told us before we selected a full hookup site, luckily we always travel with full tank of water as we would not want bad water into our "system." Very glad they keep some sites for 1st come, 1st served for travelers. We camped at Plymouth Park COE in a Motorhome.

Clearwater River Casino , Lewiston, Idaho

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

As others wrote, 1st come, 1st served and because utilities for adjoining sites are together, 1/2 the sites either have to "drive in" or pull utilities under the RV. Most sites reasonably level but some need some work. Yes, there were large rocks at what must have originally been sites, but the 19 spaces clearly have numbers. However, if you pulled in late, I could see that might be confusing (however after reading this, now you know). The staff was very friendly at the hotel where you check in and go to use the nice lounge chairs and/or tables for WiFi. We did get several TV stations by air. Some noise from highway, but cooler so did not open windows. Very convenient for Lewis & Clark things in Spalding and Lewiston. Only a few sites had picnic tables. We camped at Clearwater River Casino in a Motorhome.

Powell Campground, Powell, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

As others wrote, this is one of the nicest Nat'l Forest parks. The word was out among other campers that the park closed at the end of Sept (in a few days) but a ranger at Lolo Visitor Center said closure would be October 15. There was no sign indicating when it would close (and most other NFS camps were already closed), the camp host had already left and they had even pulled the dumpsters so you had to take your trash with you! However, it was a wonderful stay for a couple of nights and would have enjoyed longer. As reported asphalt pads and roads, 50 amp electric in largest loop, nicely wooded and spaced. Many sites suitable for our Class A 35' and saw larger RVs. We camped at Powell Campground in a Motorhome.

Century II Campground & RV Park, Salmon, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the nicest if not the nicest RV Parks in Salmon. The owner is very friendly, although he admitted that during the summer he is often so busy, mowing, etc, that he has little time for "chatting". We chose a 30 amp site at the far end and backed into it with our 35' motorhome so we could see the river (ran electric & water under). If you must have 50 amp, they are only available near the front and have no river view. There is some noise from the Hwy, but that is true of the other parks as well. We camped at Century II Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.
