Desert Eagle RV Park (Military FamCamp), Nellis AFB, Nevada

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We've stayed here many times over the years, and the service and facilities have been consistently outstanding. Professional, friendly check in with welcome package and escort to site, which this time was the "legacy" or older section which we prefer. Sites here are in a circle and provide great separation between the level, concrete sites. Nice landscaping with trees and shrubs, but no real obstructions to the TV satellites. No cable but plenty of OTA channels. We couldn't get the park WiFi to connect during our week long stay, but Verizon cell/data were good. Plenty of the "sound of freedom" during the week beginning early in the morning, but quiet at night and on the weekends. One of the best Famcamps in the system. We'll stay here again. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

We use exit 54 off I-15 for access to and from the Famcamp. There's a Petro station near the entrance with both fuel and propane.

Shady Lane RV Camp, Barstow, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Entry to the park is narrow and there's not much room to pull up and clear the road if someone is ahead of you. Be prepared to pull off the road to the right prior to the entrance if you see another rig in line. Tight but doable for big rigs; some of the long-term workers park their pickup trucks near the access roads. Gravel, level sites long enough to leave the tow attached to the motorhome. WiFi worked well until the residents returned in the evening, but Verizon cell/data was strong. Cable TV, a few OTA channels in English, and not much to block TV satellites. Fairly easy access off I-5 in a less than picturesque area. An acceptable overnight in a pinch. We camped at Shady Lane RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Shady Haven RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Friendly owners at check in and escort to site. Paved interior roads and level concrete pad with patio and table. Good Verizon cell/data and park WiFi. No obstructions to TV satellites and plenty of OTA channels. Very secure with key-card gate and tall walls with razor wire. We really liked this park and it's owners, but the constant rumble of nearby trains is a deterrent to a return. We camped at Shady Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kit Fox RV Park, Patterson, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Easy access from the interstate and professional check in. Paved interior roads, level and long pull-thrus with convenient hookups. Cable TV was limited, adequate OTA channels, and no obstructions to satellites. Sites are close together, no table or grass. Verizon cell and Wi-Fi was strong, park Wi-Fi spotty. Significant noise from trucks due to the huge terminal in back of the park. OK for an overnight at the PA rate; wouldn't stay here at the full rate. We camped at Kit Fox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Valley of the Rogue State Park, Gold Hill, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Oregon State Parks are consistently above average and this heavily used park is no exception. We made reservations for the Labor Day weekend and are glad we did since the full hookup loop was full. Our paved pull-thru site was long and fairly level and had a table and fire ring. A fair amount of OTA TV channels and a few holes in the trees for portable satellite. Verizon cell/data were strong. Easy access to I-5 but there was little road noise. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino, Corning, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Located behind a casino, check in is to the left of the entry at the "welcome center". Check in was efficient and friendly, and we were fortunate to have a reservation since the park was full due to nearby wildfire evacuations. Paved interior roads are in need of repair, sites are all gravel pull-thrus, fairly level and very close although separated by shrubs. Hookups were conveniently placed. No working Wi-Fi but Verizon cell/data were strong. No cable TV, some OTA channels, and no obstructions to satellites. Quiet at night with occasional truck noise from the nearby station. Nice casino with average food. A good overnight choice with easy access to I-5. We camped at RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino in a Motorhome.

Hi-Way Haven RV Park, Sutherlin, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large, well-maintained and professionally staffed park that is a bargain at the Passport America rate. Access from I-5 is easy, and interior roads are wide and paved. Sites are long, level gravel, fairly close, but each has a small fenced patio area complete with table and chairs. Check in was quick and friendly. The drive-in movie screen wasn't being used during our stay, but would be an attractive feature. Park WiFi was spotty, but Verizon Cell/Data was strong. The cable TV was adequate and there were a few OTA channels. Most sites have no obstructions to the TV satellites. The propane price was reasonable and access was easy. Lots of long term residents, but sites were well kept. We'll stay here again. We camped at Hi-Way Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.

Robbin's Nest RV Park, Bandon, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is based on month's stay. Our preferred place to stay when visiting the Bandon Area. Easy access to Highway 101 and close to Bandon and seaside parks. Level gravel sites are extra long; although sites are fairly close, the length allows rigs to be staggered for extra room. Without doubt the best park internet we've ever experienced. No obstructions to TV satellites, little OTA, and digital cable kits available on request. Verizon cell/data were strong. Some long-term residents, but their sites are well maintained. This isn't a resort, just a safe, reasonable, and comfortable place to stay. The owners are attentive and helpful; as one other Rver said "it's like camping in a friend's back yard". We'll stay here again. We camped at Robbin's Nest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Blue Ox RV Park, Albany, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

An interesting park - more of a mobile home park populated by RVs. Many permanent residents, but with nicely landscaped lots. Short term guests have paved, level pull-thrus with grass and trees. Sites are close together, and interior roads have to be navigated slowly. Nice indoor pool, spotless laundry(s), and friendly residents. Good WiFi, OTA TV, and clear shot at satellites. Verizon cell/data were good. Close to I-5 and shopping/dining. A very nice park. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Indian Creek Campground, Deer Lodge, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00

A comfortable but pricey overnight stay. Easy access from I-90, with good interior gravel roads and long pull-thru gravel sites. Convenient hookups and good WiFi. OK cable TV, no OTA, and no obstructions to the satellites. Verizon cell/data were strong. Close to the interstate with the expected noise. We camped at Indian Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Days End Campground, Sturgis, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We wouldn't recommend this park unless using the PA rate. Check in at the old, cigarette-smoke filled office was thankfully quick, and we parked in a long, gravel pull-thru with neighbors so close that our slides almost touched. Road noise was expected but not all that bad. Cable was fuzzy analog, no OTA TV, and no obstructions to the satellites. WiFi wouldn't connect, but Verizon Cell/Data were strong. OK this time of year because there were few others camped, but wouldn't want to be here when crowded. We camped at Days End Campground in a Motorhome.

Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground, Welcome, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

A comfortable park with friendly staff, level pull-thrus, and plenty of shade. We wish more campgrounds were like this - easy in and out, good facilities, and a very reasonable price. The WiFi worked well, OTA TV was adequate, and Verizon cell/data was strong. Quiet and peaceful, our preferred park when traveling in the area.

3 Fingers Campground, Forest City, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A short drive west of town, this seasonal park has a number of long, level pull-thru sites for short term guests. The host was friendly and helpful, and access into the site was easy. Hookups were conveniently placed, some OTA TV channels, and fair WiFi. Verizon cell/data were strong. The preferred park when waiting for service in Forest City.

Little Bear Campground , West Liberty, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Like others, we stayed here to make an early A.M. appointment at HWH. On arrival, we were met by the very friendly owner, who suggested the best site for shade and easy egress. Our site was level gravel, well shaded, and long enough to leave our tow attached. There was some noise from the adjacent truck stop but overall the park was quiet at night. Just a couple of OTA TV channels, no cable, but some sites had a view to the satellite. Good WiFi until evening when everyone got on line. Verizon cell/data was strong. Overall a pleasant and the best place to stay for an early HWH appointment. We camped at Little Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

On-Ur-Wa RV Park, Onawa, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Tidy park with good access to the interstate. Dusty interior roads and long, pull thru sites with some shade. Friendly hosts provided an escort to site, which was level and with convenient hookups. Park WiFi worked well, and Verizon cell/data was very good. No cable, little OTA, but the pull thru sites had a clear shot to the TV Satellites. Not much in the area, just a clean, quiet place to overnight. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.
