Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $3.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have said, this is a fabulous campground. The views are breathtaking and the hiking trails are great. It does have some issues for big rigs. The driveway lengths listed on reservation.gov can be very misleading. Many of the sites slope so steeply that only a portion is usable for the RV itself. Most of the sites also have large boulders at the end of the pavement that prevents overhanging the pad, further limiting usable length. We stayed in sites 1 and 11 in our 43' coach with a dolly and a car and had no problem. Site 21 is also long enough for us, but I have my doubts about others. There is no overflow parking for cars or trailers and the rangers will not permit parking off pavement., so everything must fit in the driveway. The power posts are on the wrong side of the pull-through sites. I had to run an extension cable under the coach. There is NO water, so bring all you will need. The new sites mentioned in another review are now scheduled to open after January 1, 2018. The new back-in sites appear to be about 70' long and the pull-thrus are easily 100'. The sites are the largest I can recall ever seeing. The best views are in the old campground, especially sites 9-20. All sites, old and new, have covered patios with tables and fire pits. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The chorizo and fish tacos at Giliberto's are surprisingly good. Also check out their salsa bar. Don't miss Moab Backyard Theater, a funky outdoor venue with fun shows and local live music Mar-Oct. Take chairs or get there early to get a hay bale seat. Wednesday night bluegrass is my favorite. BYOB, too.

Wapiti RV Park, Lincoln City, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Kinda of a funky park, but not in a bad way. No full timers. Roughly 36 sites with water and 30 amp that all back up to large grassy fields. Our 43' motorhome was by far the largest in the park. The sites are gravel, fairly short and narrow, but you can hang out the back, even drive onto the grass if you wish. The surrounding fields are for camping and on the 4th of July there were many large groups scattered under the trees, but park is so large that everyone had lots of space. Lots of area to walk the dogs, even off leash. The park is a former farm located about 4 miles from Lincoln City on a rural road. It is very quiet. We had a sporadic AT&T data connection but no phone service. No OTA TV signal. We camped at Wapiti RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mazatlan Mexican restaurant in Depoe Bay is excellent. If here on holiday be prepared for major traffic on US 101 through Lincoln City. We food shopped in Newport rather than deal with it. We found some great buys at the Outlets in Lincoln City. The Drift Creek Falls hike is well worth it.

Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, Winchester Bay, Oregon

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

A very nice, older park with a mix of full hookup; water & power; and no services sites. All driveways are paved. Leveling can be an issue in some of the smaller sites. Most larger sites are heavily shaded. Bathrooms and showers are older but very clean. The park is popular with tent campers and smaller RV's. Sites for 40' RV's are limited and some have tight access due to mature trees. Good AT&T service; spotty Verizon service. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

Reedsport about 4 miles away, has a small Safeway, hardware store, and limited services. North Bend is major shopping area, about 20 miles south.

Double D's, Kitties and Bedrocks do reliable food in their respective genres. Fresh oysters and fish are readily available.

Umpqua Lighthouse and Museum, Heceta Light, Sealion Caves and Coos Bay Museum are all worth seeing.

Winchester Bay RV Resort, Winchester Bay, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

I can't think of a thing to improve here. It has WIFI that streams Netflix! And then it also has full cable service included. The sites are level, spacious and have great views of the marina or the bay. The facilities look brand new and are spotless. The whole park is manicured by the county staff and the hosts. There are two service buildings which each have laundries and showers. The meeting hall can be used by campers if not rented for a function, and it has lounge, big screen, etc. There are two playgrounds for kids and a 1 mile paved walkway to walk the dogs. One caution: the wind seems to blow constantly and we had no clear days in a week in April. Pack foul weather gear. We camped at Winchester Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Double D's for seafood and chowder Bedrock's has great pizza Kathies for pie: oh my! Be sure to visit the Umpqua Lighthouse Museum and take the tour of the light. The Safeway market about 6 miles north in Reedsport. Coos Bay has a good Wlamart and big Safeway. The used book store in the pink building on the south end of Reedsport is worth an hour or two.

River Bend County Park, Foster, Oregon

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Absolute jem of a park. The camp hosts and rangers do a great job to maintain a spotlees facility and make everyone welcome. All sites are paved and all appear to be level. F15 certainly was. The site was easy to back in our 43' coach. Roads are wide and overhead branches trimmed appropriately. Some sites are open enough for satellite dishes, but most are pretty shaded. Great play areas for kids, large fields for dogs and good trails to walk. Great heated showers. It was way too cold in March and the river was almost at flood stage, so no swimming or even wading was attempted, but during the summer I'll bet the river is the main draw for this park. We camped at River Bend County Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping and fuel about 12 miles west in Sweet Home. Sisters is about 65 miles east and worth the trip for the day. It's a very scenic drive, but expect traffic. No firewood sales in the park so plan accordingly. No ATT&T service and I was told most other cell services didn't work at all or poorly. We had to drive almost to Sweet Hime to get a usable signal.

Park of the Sierras - Escapees Park (members only), Coarsegold, California

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

I've never given a 10 rating before, but I can' think of anything they could do better. This park is clearly designed and operated by full time RV'ers who really love it. The sites are very spacious and the terrain adds great views and additional privacy to most of them.

The facilities are impeccably maintained. The grounds are immaculate. Volunteers are everywhere working on keeping everything up. We had a cable TV issue and 15 minutes after I mentioned it to the park manager three knowledgable, "experienced" guys showed up to fix it. Problem solved.

The park only uses about half of their 140 acre site. The rest is reserved for trails and open space. We had no lack of exercise and the dogs loved it.

Even the WIFI works. AT&T data and phone signals are strong. With cable we never tried OTA TV.

Our site was very spacious, private and quiet. We could barely see the neighbors. The roads can be tight, but we had no problems in a 43' motorhome, especially with the escort service provided. We camped at Park of the Sierras - Escapees Park (members only) in a Motorhome.

Good grocery shopping and most other services in Oakhurst, ~10 miles away.

Crab Cakes Restaurant food was average at best and expensive.

The casino was unglamorous and dull.

Lots of great back roads to explore.

Reimer's Ice Cream in Oakhurst is worth the drive.

Nehalem Bay State Park, Nehalem, Oregon

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

Dislaimer: I'm biased because we were camp hosts at Nehalem Bay State Park in October 2016. We have hosted there for three years and plan to return in 2017.

The long awaited upgrade to 50A service on the ABC loops has been completed. DEF loops are still 30A.

We have no trouble getting good AT&T cell phone and data service. We also had some OTA TV reception including two PBS channels.

All sites are backin. Sites on the inside of loops are more suited to rigs under 30'. Sites on the outside of the loops are longer and angled for easier bigger rig access.

Trees need trimming in many sites and on a few of the loop roads. The rangers have that on their winter work plan.

We ran into the elk herd a couple of times walking the bay trail. Deer are everywhere. Raccons are a problem: do not leave trash outside. Dogs can be off leash on the beach and they love it. Showers are good everywhere and the new ones in F loop are especially nice. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Seafood at the Fish Peddler on the wharf in Bay City. Seniors get 20% discount on Tuesday. Great chowder.

New: Handy Creek Bakery and Cafe in Wheeler for breakfast.

Neumann's 988 in Cannon Beach for dinner. (expensive)

Maritime Museum in Astoria is easily worth 3-4 hours

Museum in Garibaldi surprisingly interesting

Seaside; shops and Lewis & Clark sites

Nehalem hardware has decent RV section and good people

Nehalem Animal Healing Center is outstanding

Devil's Lake RV Park, Lincoln City, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We wanted to stay here but could not get into any site with our 43' motorhome. The sites are very tight and the roads are lined with trees. Overhead clearance has not been maintained, either. It was impossible to make the turn onto sites that are clearly marked 45+ feet. As far as I am concerned, this park is not big rig accessible, and I have the scratches on the coach to prove it. We camped at Devil's Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Barton Park, Boring, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Site 71 in the East Campground. Nice park, good power and water, no sewer. Many spacious, long back in sites. None are shaded. Several shaded pull throughs but most looked tight for big rigs. Adequate showers with button you had to push every 30 seconds for water, lack of safety hand rails a significant issue. OK dog walking. All sites are paved, with fire pits and tables. West Campground has shorter grass and gravel sites. Smaller rigs might find it prettier there, but big rigs would have tree problems; doable but not easy. The park is in the Portland airport flight path depending on wind direction. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.

Clyde Holliday State Recreation Site, Mt Vernon, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Outstanding. Smaller park with 50A and water. Lots of space between sites, almost park-like. Traffic noise on US26 dies almost completely by 10pm but can be intrusive during the day.

Great walking areas. Good showers, firewood is a bargain. One pull thru. Several sites are very long.

First come/first served, so arrive early or plan on dry camping in the parking lot. The park was full by 4pm on Wednesday night in late September.

Good ATT, two PBS OTA TV stations. Heavily treed, so folks were having sat issues in some sites. We camped at Clyde Holliday State Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

Rock Creek RV Park, Twin Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Small county park nestled along river near downtown Twin Falls. 30A and water; no dump station in the campground. "Large" pull-thrus were barely long enough for the coach alone. Pull thru sites are narrow, but shorter backin sites are quite spacious. No tables. No showers. Lots of walking area, lots of grass for dogs.

NOTE: Do not enter Rock Creek Park. Entrance to RV park is street adjacent to Westwind Homes. No signs for the park except the street sign itself says Rock Creek RV Park Road. If you miss it turn around in the hospital about 1/4 mile east on the left.

Good ATT service. We camped at Rock Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

Lovely place, very peaceful, lots of good walking areas. Very clean. Almost deserted in mid-week in mid-September. We dry camped in middle of three paved parking areas, the one below the dam. We paid the fee, but I'm not sure I should have.

Do not try to get into Lake View Campground in anything longer than 30'! Much too tight and there are major tree problems throughout.

I did not try the Elk Flat Campground because dirt road was too rough for our coach. We camped at Cave Lake State Park (Elk Flat Campground) in a Motorhome.

Green River State Park, Green River, Utah

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

We stayed one night in a 43' motorhome pulling a dolly. The roads are paved but narrow, and not well marked, they really need new painted arrows and better signs. Our coach will not make a couple of the turns without backing up, so we had to disconnect to get into a pull-through. The park has only 4-5 spaces for big rigs despite what the web site claims. I think all of the sites are now 50 amp, but did not try to verify that. All the sites we looked at were 50 amp. All have water, none have sewer.

The showers closest to the entrance office are much nicer than the others.

We stayed one night on July 4th and the park was maybe 20% occupied. We would stay again as it is well placed between Denver and St. George. We camped at Green River State Park in a Motorhome.

Griff's Valley View RV Park & Campground, Altoona, Iowa

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

One of the best laid out, cleanest parks we have ever stayed in. It is actually a reason to go back to Iowa. $30 is the best deal we've ever seen for a park of this quality.

Huge sites, vast grassy areas to walk dogs, wide paved streets, etc.

I'd give it a 10 if the WIFI was free (it is very strong) and if the utilities were positioned for motorhomes instead of 5th wheels.

We stayed in site C5, a pull through easily long enough for our 43' coach plus dolly plus minivan, but the utilities were in the back corner, so by the time I was fully in the site I had to run ~30' of cable and 25' of sewer hose. The site slope was such that the sewer would not drain by itself, either. Next time, we'll unload the dolly and put it and the car in front of the coach and the services will play much better.

There is no office. You have to call ahead for a reservation secured by a credit card. When you get there, you call the owner and she gives you very clear directions on how to reach your site. She charges the card and you leave whenever you are ready. We camped at Griff's Valley View RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very pretty smaller campground about 3 miles from Rt 7, about 8 miles from Bennington. Very quiet and clean, FHU include cable (just 13 channels) and very decent WIFI. Good ATT cell, too.

Sites are arranged around small pond with a lighted fountain that is a nice swimming hole in warmer weather. All gravel roads and sites, level, table and fire ring. Shade varies by site. No laundry. Quiet dogs are more important than leashed dogs, a refreshing attitude. We'd come back anytime. We camped at Pine Hollow Camprgound in a Motorhome.
