Furnace Creek (NPS Campground), Death Valley National Park, California

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

The NPS recently renovated this park, so the roads, campsites, and bathrooms are new. The best part? They added full hookup sites that are very long. Any sized motorhome and tow will effortlessly fit. Some sites have Tamarisk trees or bushes but the full hookup sites have none. But that's not a problem because you'll have A/C and your awning will open on the north side of the RV (you'll have plenty of shade). Visitor center is a very short walk. About a quarter mile walk to the store. Great desert views. Far enough from the road that it's quiet. You get a very nice, aluminum, picnic table and a fire pit. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

LVM Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $81.00
Overall Rating:      

Absolutely first class RV resort. Beautiful grounds. Perfect sites. Clean bathrooms. Great laundry with new machines. Great location with shopping, gas, RV and car washes nearby. Quiet and safe. Lush, tropical landscaping. Easy to get on the freeway to see the strip. Only quibble is that they charge a $10 a day electrical fee, which is odd, since you must pay it, therefore it should be part of the base price. (my cost includes this fee) NOTE - they only allow Class A RV's to camp here. Seems a bit snooty. We camped at LVM Resort in a Motorhome.

I used to live in Las Vegas. My best tip: the entire city is full of fantastic restaurants that are equivalent to or even better than the ones on the strip. But they are MUCH cheaper. So don't eat on the strip and don't freak out if Yelp sends you to a high rated restaurant in a strip mall in some remote suburb. For example, there's a great Hawaiian "plate lunch" restaurant about a block from the park. High quality, generous portions, at an affordable price.

Calico Ghost Town & Campground, Yermo, California

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

The main campground is nestled inside two canyons within walking distance of Calico Ghost town. Good views of the beautiful mountains. Quiet and peaceful; campground was mostly empty when we were there. Hookups/utilities worked fine, bathrooms very clean. So all of these bumped up my rating. But... this campground does have some problems. Mainly, the campsites are uneven and not level. If the camp is full, there may be privacy problems as the sites are crammed in. Most of the non-hookup sites are on dusty dirt and accessed by dirt roads. Almost no trees, so it's all dirt, dust, and rock. For a county park campground, I expect paved, level sites. So, to sum up, I would have given this camp a 4, but considering the wilderness feel, the quiet (mainly because the campground was mostly empty), and the scenery, it bumped up my rating. And, considering the other camping options in Barstow, which are in town or next to the interstate, this place is pretty nice. NOTE - This campground has a second section for the OHV crowd. That campground, while recently upgraded, is all gravel and is out on the alluvial fan. You can see the town and freeway so it doesn't have the "nature feel" We camped at Calico Ghost Town & Campground in a Motorhome.

Horn Rapids RV Resort, Richland, Washington

Beautiful, well maintained park Clean, modern, great convenience store, quiet, and great wi-fi. There seems to be lots of long term campers, but I think they are contractors working at Hanford (they have clean, well-maintained RV's) We camped at Horn Rapids RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Sunnyside County Park, Foster, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow! What a pleasant surprise. We had a huge campsite with plenty of grass, under the trees, and close to the lake. It's quiet and beautiful. I rarely rate a place a 10 but this deserves it. Only negatives are that it's only 30 amps and no sewer connection, but the place is so nice, who cares! We camped at Sunnyside County Park in a Motorhome.

Redwood Meadows RV Resort (formerly Hiouchi RV Resort), Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice spacious campground and only a few minutes walk from Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. It's a sunny, open campground, which is nice because this area tends to be dark and foggy (the state park campground, while wonderful, is really dank and dark). What's bizarre about this park is that you parallel park your rigs instead of backing them in (not difficult, even with a big rig). What's nice about that is that everyone's door faces a central green space and you have plenty of room for your tow. The Wi-Fi is amazingly fast with strong signals. They do use a bizarre type of sewer connection (a tube sticks out of the ground and it has threads on the outside of the tube). I had to jury-rig my sewer connection. We camped at Redwood Meadows RV Resort (formerly Hiouchi RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Secret Camp RV Park, Gold Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

I want to say I really like this park. It's incredibly beautiful with a central park-like area. And it's quiet. The roads are gravel but not dusty. We had a 40 foot big rig and even though the roads are cramped and narrow, we didn't have any problems. And, it's reasonably close to town. But something was off. We didn't have 50 amp power (not sure about other sites), the sewer was way in the back of our site so I had to use an extension hose, and there is no laundry. But the worst part is that the sites are very close together. Many sites are V-shaped; one entrance for two campsites. We were in a W-shaped site, so one entrance for three campsites. There was no place to park our tow, so we just parked it next to the neighbor's car in the next site over. We camped at Secret Camp RV Park in a Motorhome.

Novato RV Park, Novato, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $71.00
Overall Rating:      

It's hard to rate this campground. The staff is wonderful and they seem to have a passion for providing service and a clean campground. But the sites are crammed together and most of the RV's are full-time residents. The positives: Great location, close to the freeway exit (you don't hear traffic), beautiful scenery if you look up at the hills, close to shopping and town, quiet, clean, level sites, good utilities, decent internet (not good, just decent), a deli onsite, picnic tables, concrete picnic pad, great staff, LOTS of information about local area. The negatives: This is a mobile home park with RV sites at the front end. Most of the RV "campers" are full time residents (but they are nice, pleasant people, not rowdy roughnecks). The sites are crammed together. But considering there are incredibly few camping options in the Bay Area, it's a decent place to stay. I would give it a 9. But if it's in a place like Redding, with multiple campgrounds that have lawns, trees, large camping spots, etc. this would rank a 3 in comparison. We camped at Novato RV Park in a Motorhome.

Trailer Villa RV Park, Redwood City, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

With so few RV Parks in the Bay Area, this place isn't bad. We stay here every time we are in the area. On the other hand, I really wish there were more choices. On the positive side, Redwood City is halfway in between SFO and San Jose so you have lots of things to do within a 30 minute drive, so the location is good. The park is by the freeway, but you camp so far away you don't hear a thing. The overnight campers are put in the back of the park, near the bay so you get some views. You park on concrete pads with great utilities and it's very clean. the laundry rooms are great, with newer machines. On the bad side, It's in Redwood city so it's far from everything (yes, it's location is a blessing and a curse). It's in a depressing, industrial location. The campsites are crammed together. The internet is poor. There are a lot of full timers, but they have new RV's and new cars, so it's not like you are surrounded by transients. We camped at Trailer Villa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Marina Dunes RV Park, Marina, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

Overall a nice park and from what I could see from the internet, there aren't many good options in the area. I was worried about this park being so close to the ocean that it would be windy with blowing sand. But the dunes and trees block the wind so it's very nice. You get a cozy, private campsite with vegetation between the sites, so it's private. The laundry is inexpensive and clean which is nice. The beach is a short walk away and it's wonderful. I would have rated this park as an 8 but there were three major problems - our campsite was dirty (garbage, weedy), the park is close to the freeway so there's lots of noise, and the internet is basically useless. We camped at Marina Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park, Grass Valley, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

I would definitely stay here again. Beautiful trees, quiet, close to town. Nice lake nearby with ducks and geese. Great Wi-fi. Incredible value. Now for the negatives (don't let these dissuade you, but are just for you to be aware) - While surrounded by forest, all the campsites are in an open, exposed field with no shade. The roads and campsites are gravel (but not dusty). They are full of depressions and tire tracks that collect muddy water when it rains. There is green lawn between the sites but it's weedy and full of bare patches. And for a bizarre twist, you have to rent picnic tables! This is not a well-manicured resort. But it's still a nice place to stay considering there are no other options in the area. I would come back. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Motorhome.

I visit Redmond often and this is my campground of choice. Clean, quiet, well manicured grounds, beautiful setting, friendly staff, and GREAT wi-fi. Large, level concrete pads to camp on, green grass between the sites, well maintained utilities for your rig. The campground is close to the freeway, a car wash, and shopping. All in all, a great place to stay. We camped at Premier RV Resorts of Redding in a Motorhome.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

I started to worry when I researched campgrounds in West Yellowstone; they all seemed dumpy and expensive. Then I discovered this park. Wow! I would class this as an RV Resort. Yet it's similar in price to other parks in the area. The grounds are immaculate, paved, and well landscaped. Lots of grass and trees. Fantastic internet connection. Spotless bathrooms and laundry facilities. Friendly staff. Quiet and safe. It's about a quarter of a mile from downtown and close to the entrance to Yellowstone. The location is at the edge of town, so there's forest on two sides, and quiet streets on the other two sides. There's an interesting looking adventure park across the street that kids may like. The only negative about this park was our site seemed small and close to the neighbors. I had a hard time squeezing my tow vehicle into its own, dedicated parking area. But don't get me wrong, even if I had more complaints, this park is definitely a 10 and I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Billings KOA, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

I wasn't expecting much from the negative reviews of all the Billings campgrounds. But this is probably one of the nicest KOA's that we've stayed in. Clean, safe, well landscaped, well maintained facilities, mature trees, plenty of room to maneuver a big rig, friendly staff, good laundry rooms...you get the idea. It was almost at the level of a nice RV resort. We had one of the nicer patio sites but even the "normal" sites looked fine. If I had the reason to stay, I could camp a week here and be perfectly comfortable. Another treat is that the Yellowstone River runs right by the park so you can go for pleasant evening walks with stunning scenery. The only negative is the price which is pretty steep. But the park is so nice you can almost pretend it's worth it. We camped at Billings KOA in a Motorhome.

Big Pine Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful campground and I would definitely stay here again. What I liked the most about this place was that it was surrounded by forest (and was in the forest itself) so I felt like we were out in the wilderness. With other local campgrounds, you can see houses, stores, etc. from your campsite. The owners were incredibly friendly and escort you to your site. The campground was clean, quiet, and safe. The restrooms were immaculate and often smelled like they were cleaned a few minutes ago. Laundry room was OK, but it served our needs. Custer is a good, central location to explore the Black Hills. This campground is only about a mile west of town, so you have the wilderness feel but are still close to everything. I have a few criticisms (but don't let them keep you from staying at this great park) - the internet was nonexistent ever though our site was about 15 feet from a wifi hotspot. The laundry and recreation room are a long hike from most of the camping areas. And the roads get sloppy when it rains so you get mud on your vehicles (that said, I think most of the campgrounds in the area have dirt roads, so not like you have a choice.) We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Motorhome.
