Champoeg State Heritage Area, Newberg, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Only negative was the amount of continual dog barking. I and others spoke with two of the park host... and much to their frustration as well, they told us their "hands were tied" as the State Park Officials in charge are "concerned" more about hurting the feelings of a few dog owners that cannot control there dogs, than the majority of the campers that are paying to stay and enjoy the State Park as well. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Yreka RV Park, Yreka, California

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Could only manage giving "#7 Good" as the owners are allowing a lot of "long term" folks to bring the park down! No problem with long term but they allow them to build up all kinds of trash around their trailers. Several have put up fences to keep their dogs in. But hey you have to take the good with bad. Out spot was very nice with grass on both sides of our fiver. Would stay here again in a pinch. The office personnel was great. We camped at Yreka RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Parkway RV Resort, Orland, California

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

$48 for nightly rate... we paid $53 for the "Premium" spot! It was worth the 5 bucks, as you are not sandwiched in between others all in a row. The check in was fast and courteous. Did not swim but the pool look clean and inviting. We camped at The Parkway RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Merced River RV Resort, Delhi, California

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

You won't be sending photos home! LoL But hey, it was a place for a one nighter! Lots of trees for shade. Lots of dusty roads with a splash of gravel. All the utilities worked and that to me is the most important. You will be with a lot of folks that live here permanently...probably working at the Foster Farms facility.

May I suggest the Foster Farm Cafe just 3.5 miles or 6 minutes! This was hands down the best fried chicken! It is cooked fresh when you order but only about 20 minute wait!

Boulder Creek RV Resort, Lone Pine, California

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Very much a "camping" feel to the park. Lots of trees...watch for branches as not to scratch yer rig! My only issue, I was given the shortest site on the row we were in, and the row was mostly empty the 3 nights we were there??? We are 57 foot total truck and fiver! I could have asked for another site....but made it work! I had to back out of our site the morning we left. Keeps me sharp I guess. LOL We camped at Boulder Creek RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Hey what do you expect now days for 25 bucks? I have stay in a lot worse and paid a lot more! Everything worked and to me that is important. Just a one night stay to see the Boron Borax mine and visitor center! Oh and the 20 Mule Team Café about 3 blocks away was some on the best food you will throw a lip over!

Las Quintas Oasis RV Resort (55+ park), Yuma, Arizona

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

I say $24. as we did the one-month rate! I gave a "good" rating as we have stayed at much nicer "resorts" for $700. and month. We stayed in the pull-through area which is gravel with a strip of concrete to set out your chairs or bbq. This park was absolutely spotless in every way... laundry room, swimming pool etc. Speaking of swimming, there is a "resident" that brings her own style of music to the pool and plays it very loud, be prepared! I don't understand why she doesn't wear ear buds? The staff was extremely helpful and professional. We camped at Las Quintas Oasis RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park), Picacho, Arizona

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

Just a two-nighter! Stayed here before and would stay again. Hey this is right next to the freeway & train tracks... is it noisy...yes! Call me crazy but after a bit we didn't hear it much. If you are 40' or more be sure and tell them you want the "big rig" area! Really nice swimming pool area, café and more. It is 28 miles to any sort of restaurant or shopping. Dairy Queen is just a mile away! We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Kartchner Caverns State Park, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

You will not find a more quiet peaceful stay! Do they have all the amenities...no! We booked 2 weeks in advance and still did not get a site with sewer or 50amp, just 30amp. If you have a large holding tank you will be fine, or you pull up stakes and use their dump area. The water pressure at our site was 20 pounds, barely enough to get wet in our shower! We stayed 5 nights. We camped at Kartchner Caverns State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are "healthy" there are two hiking trails in the park. The easiest being the Foothills Loop. The more difficult and long Guindani Loop...take food and water is a must on the Guindani Loop.

Overall Rating:

Have stayed here 3 times. It is very clean & tidy. They even rake the gravel at your site! Very nice clubhouse with local southwest art and food products...no groceries or RV products. Very convenient RV Sales & Service one block away, you will pass it as you approach this RV Park. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

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

We have stayed here 3 times. It is a very nice stop for a couple of nights if you have something you want to do in the area. We went to Guadalupe Mountains National Park. This RV Park will not rock your world with grass, fancy lights and things to do...don't come here expecting a "resort". If you want quiet this place will do... as it is far enough from the freeway you will not hear traffic! They do have a café for Breakfast & Dinner.

Hey you can tell this is a fairly newish park and they are trying to make it into a Resort! Extremely easy in and out because of the wide paved roads to a level gravel site. We camped at Whistle Stop RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Midessa Oil Patch RV Park, Odessa, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Don't discount the previous comments about this RV Park. In five years of full timing I have only given one or two "bad" reviews. DO NOT DRINK THE WATER it will be extremely hazardous to your health. Google "Nitrates in water." They tell you only after you arrive not to drink the water. I did not even hook up to their water source. They say it's okay to shower...not me. How do you not get water in your eyes, nose, or mouth??? The office will give you a free case of bottled water.

The staff was very friendly. So the reason for "Bad Service & Bad Value" is you cannot use the services you are paying for! I had to back out of my site because residents are allowed to park in the streets and would not be able to pull out the front of my "Pull-through!" We camped at Midessa Oil Patch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wichita Falls RV Park, Wichita Falls, Texas

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

Hey just a wide open rv park along a river. Super easy in and out. Very wide gravel roads to gravel sites. Lots of grass in between each site. They seem to keep the "residents" to them selves... and the travelers together. We stayed two days and would stay again! We camped at Wichita Falls RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
