Rate reflects PA discount. As others have said, full hook-ups including cable & free, decent Wi-Fi. Park is well-maintained and most sites for short-termers are pull-thru. We were there a week. Road noise was not a problem for us. The only strange thing is that we never saw anyone work there, nor do they return phone calls, and check-in is a bit confusing. There are hand-written signs that sort-of tell you what to do (how to pick a site, where to pick a site, how much to pay, how to pay, etc...) but each and every person, including us, when arrived was confused at first and asked RV'ers around them what to do. That being said, for the price and location, we'd stay there again.
Rate does not reflect $5 additional charge for park usage - you pay this one time a visit unless you have a Georgia State Parks pass. Fabulous campground! Each site can site 50' MH (although some are difficult to maneuver into with a FW) and have 30-amp electric, water and cable. Verizon 3G is pretty good here. Washrooms have free, hot showers with good water pressure and there is a washer & dryer available as well. Lots of trees, yet fairly open campground. Nice, nice, nice staff. There is a dump before you get to the campground, however needs be be accessed when leaving the campground. We love it here and will definitely stay again. If there were sewer hook-ups, we'd give it a 10.
Rate reflects PA rate. Full hook-ups (50 amp) and cable, good Wi-Fi, intermittent Verizon 4G. Very nice employees. This county park seems to be divided into two sections - one area does not have paved roads and seems to have long term residents; the other (where we stayed) had paved roads and nicer sites. On the ocean with views of Kennedy Space Center. If coming through the area, we'd stay here again, but there really isn't much in Titusville.
Great campground! This is the second time we've stayed here and will always come back to this park when in the Palm Beach area. Sites along lake are large, all sites grassy, dog area (although it would be nice if fenced in), lots of places to walk & bike. Easy on/off to I-95 and good Verizon 4G coverage.
Rate reflects PA discount, really $44 w/tax. Just north of Marathon on Grassy Key. Nice location on water (bay) and all sites have cable included. There are new sites (no shade trees) that we actually would have preferred - our 38' FW had a bit of trouble getting around the corners as we exited. Wonderfully nice front desk people. Strange dog policy - you have to leave $30 (cash) as a deposit and if you get any warnings (i.e. dog off leash, don't pick up, etc...), then you lose your $30 (or so they say). We got our $30 back, and it's probably just a rule to keep people more aware, but was strange. We would stay here again.
Open to Elk members only. Small campground in back of lodge on water - beautiful views, for sure. State there are 10 sites, but really only 8. Best place, price-wise, to stay if eligible. Would give a 10, however the hosts force us to lower the rating - they've been there too long - difficult to describe: nice enough people, but they keep photos & records of every visitor (a bit creepy), other examples not worth mentioning. Other guests great & friendly group. Good Verizon 4G coverage. We will stay here again if in the area.
Very nice park - a loop around a lake. Each site has electric, but no water and no sewer (although there is a dump). The price is $19/night, cash only. There are restrooms, but no showers. We were able to get Verizon 3G and a booster helped with the signal. Oasis Visitor's Center just a couple miles away.
This is a fabulous park! Many large sites (yes, a few interior sites are cramped, but we were on the water) with lots of places to walk. Green, maintained grass between sites. Site had full hookups. Verizon 4G works great. Quiet at night but local airport (small planes) noise during the day. Lots to do in the park (boat, fish, walk, bike). There's a dog walking area with cute agility course pieces, but it's not fenced in. If it was fenced in completely, we'd give this place a 10. Definitely will be back when in the area.
We were surprised at the number of high ratings for this park - it was just okay - the grounds and facilities are tired and in need of updating, the staff in the office were not friendly, although the work campers and residents/other campers were very friendly. Sites were not well organized - easy to get into and big, but the sewer connections were practically in your neighbor's site, thus their connection in your site. Verizon 3G worked well; they offer TengoNet ($5/day) for WiFi, but we didn't use it.
Passport America Rate. Great park, fabulous staff! Lots of trees, but all trimmed high enough so as not to interfere with big rigs. Some huge (110') pull-through sites. Verizon 4G works great. Free cable and WiFi. (Not sure how well WiFi worked, since we used our V4G.) Decent laundry room. Lots of activities. Swimming pool with pool-side dining area. Would rate a 10 if had large, enclosed dog park (with grass). Friendly fellow campers (some long term). Would definitely camp here again.
Great campground! Just a walk away from beautiful, white sandy beaches. Sites have 50amp & water, no sewer. Verizon 4G coverage pretty good. Sites are on the larger size. Okay staff - never saw a volunteer. Will definitely be back!
Nice campground, woody and on the water. Free showers, warm water and good pressure. Some low-hanging branches and tight spots, so big-rig access can be tough. Verizon 4G data coverage. Good location to explore the Mississippi Gulf coast. Staff and campground host very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
One comes here for Betty, the other RV'ers, and the surrounding area, not the park specifically. Betty is lovely, friendly, and welcoming, as are most of the RV'ers in the park, regardless of whether they're short-timers or long-timers. Many repeat customers. A community feel throughout the park. FHU sites with free, working Wi-FI. Verizon 3G works well here. Nightly happy hours at 4:30 and frequent potluck dinners. We will definitely be back!
Rate is a combination of Passport America & AARP. I am surprised there were so many previous 9 ratings - don't think previous visitors walked around the entire park. The first few spaces, reserved for short-timers, are nice - no doubt. Pull-through, fully paved and level, cable -- nice flowers, green grass, trash picked-up at your site. But walk to another row, where the permanents and long-timers are parked, and it's a whole, different story - a bit junky. On the positive side, there is a pool & hot tub, large book exchange, 4G Verizon, and an area to grill and eat. On the "could use improvement" side, clean-up the park and learn some customer service skills; a welcoming smile and pleasant disposition is always nice. Also, a bit noisy at night -- road noise and park noise. Not sure if we'd stay here again.
We stayed in the electric/water section (full hookups are $5 more per night) - very nice, large sites with water views. Bathrooms needed renovation. Park staff very nice. Nice places to walk and Lake Brownwood is huge - great for water activities. No Verizon coverage at all. No Wi-Fi in park. Nightly rate does not include the $4 per person per day additional charge. No fishing license needed in Texas State Parks, so that's nice to know as well. We would stay here again.
Great campground - sites had electric and water. We showered in their facilities and there was great water pressure! Every staff member and volunteer we spoke with was friendly & helpful. No cell service at all. Large sites. Be sure to get fuel and provisions before entering the park. Note - additional $5 per person per day not reflected in camping rate. We would definitely stay here again.
Nice campground with FHU and close to store (that being said, if you do not want to walk and/or unhitch your tow vehicle, they will pick you up and drop you back home after shopping). However, we did not stay at the RV park, but boon docked (dry camped)in their parking lot for free, which they did not mind. Just wanted to post this review to pass the word along about free, dry camping in the Cabela's parking lot.
Rate reflect Passport America rate. Located on the edge of a multi-tiered hill overlooking downtown Colorado Springs. The resort’s roads are paved with large gravel sites. There's a small laundry facility, enclosed just okay dog park. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. We were welcomed as we drove into the park. This park is conveniently located to stores, area attractions and access to Interstate 25. It is in the city with the typical city noises and lights. There are many year round residents at this park, so at first glance one might question staying here, but everyone has been very friendly and welcoming. There really aren’t any amenities here that would support the word "resort" – it’s just a name. We felt safe and comfortable here, and would stay here again.
A nice park overall, large sites, many pull-thrus, a bit expensive ($40/night back-in; $43 pull-through) situated just south of the Santa Fe tourist attractions, about 10 miles. The people in the office are nice, there is free WiFi, and a fully-enclosed off-leash dog area (although dirt, nor grass or rock). Verizon 3G worked well.
In general this is a nice park close to Caballo Lake (about half mile to the lake through BLM land). It’s very basic, full hook-ups, all pull-through sites, free Wi-Fi (which works) and it is clean and well-maintained. There are no facilities at all. No restrooms, etc. The owner is lovely and has a happy hour every night. You pay for electric, even the daily rate, which will run about $1-$2, depending on use.
The campground is quite spacious with a decent amount of privacy between the sites, in part due to the privacy “walls” built, which also help to keep the wind down – always nice! There are restrooms and laundry, a small exercise room and a decent book exchange. The staff is friendly, the place is clean, there is a recycling center for almost everything and Verizon 3G works very well here. We would definitely stay here again.
Rate reflects PA. Very low-key park – in fact, no one in the office and payment is on the honor system. Honestly, based on prior reviews, we’re disappointed – loud area – all day we heard a neighbor’s dogs barking, kids screaming, adult man screaming at wife & kids, roosters crowing, etc…. Can hear the shooting range down the street (2 miles). Not sure where the level sites are I read about on previous reviews – we’ve got a lot of blocks under our tires. Park is clean, for most part – no trash. On phone, owner very friendly. Fine for one night while passing through, but next time we’re in Tucson, we’ll look for a different campground.
Great campground! Nicely laid-out. Each pad has a very level, long spot for your rig. Surprisingly lots of cacti vegetation between spots. Clean bathrooms and showers. The showers on solar power, so when we showered in April – HOT! Staff & volunteers very nice. Well-kept park. Verizon 3G coverage very good. Gas/Diesel can be found 5 miles south in Lukeville, just before the border crossing, or 22 miles north in Why.
Pros: Park amenities are wonderful – activities of all kinds, two large pools, two medium sized pools, two hot tubs, exercise room, library, happy hours every night at the main pool, hair/nail services on-site. Nice, updated facilities, well maintained. When staying at one Cal-Am property, you may use facilities at other Cal-Am properties. Cons: Tight fits to get into spots, but once in, there’s enough room. Strangest dog rules we’ve ever encountered in 10+ years of RV’ing. Although they have two okay-sized dog areas, they’re not grass. There are only certain streets which dogs may be walked, which creates a very “for” & “against” dog feeling all over – created a lot of tension among residents & visitors. Neutral: Many park models, which we do not mind, but some people do mind. Large (2005 sites) – again, not an issue for us, but some may feels it’s too large of a park for them.
Rate reflects 10% Good Sam discount plus tax. Park is quite nice with large pull-through sites: we didn’t even have to unhook our 38’ FW. There is free Wi-Fi (Tengonet). We didn’t use it as the Verizon 4G in the area worked great. Has a great laundry room, very nice bathrooms with good showers, a lounge area, book exchange, store, heated pool (to 90-degrees), basketball courts and shuffleboard courts. They have recycling, propane, a car/RV wash and couple off-least pet areas that are decent in size. There appears to be many long-term residents, and they seem to have one area where us “overnighters” stay, which is centrally located to everything. The park is clean, the roads paved, and the sites small gravel. The staff was all very nice and friendly as well.
The rate reflect RPI plus $7 for 50-amp. Nice park with great spring-fed hot tubs and pools, yet is becoming quite dated and could use some major overhauls of buildings. Lots of activities, decent fenced dog area, Wi-Fi at a cost. (We didn’t use it as Verizon 3G worked well.) Overall nice staff.
Rate reflect RPI. This is a very nice park - clean, sites are long, graveled, and each site has a concrete pad to use as a patio. There are activities, the staff is extremely friendly, there’s a swimming pool & hot tub, clubhouse with the typical book exchange, games & puzzles, horseshoes, RV wash, small dog area, the usual. There’s also a winery and restaurant. Used to be Western Horizons, but went bankrupt and now bank-owned & looking for a buyer. Tengo net for Wi-Fi ($2/day.) Verizon coverage (phone & data) is very good.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. This is a nice park – most sites are pull-through with full hook-ups, cable TV and free, pretty good Wi-Fi throughout the park. The sites are narrow, but most sites have a nice shade tree and some grass. There is a small clubhouse with laundry, showers, a couple couches and puzzles. Staff was efficient, not exceptionally friendly. Verizon phone/data both worked well (4G area). $1/day charge for pets. We would stay here again.
The rate reflects a 10% AAA/Good Sam discount. Each site has full hook-ups with cable. There are two playgrounds, a small of-leash dog area, tent sites, some very nice permanent sites, horseshoe pits, boat dock, restaurant, lounge and a store. Verizon (phone and data) is pretty good. There is very friendly staff. We would definitely come here again.
Rate reflected RPI price ($10) plus tax (10%). This is a pretty nice park. The sites are fairly level, FHU, with enough space between to have some area to claim as your own. There’s a large, clean swimming pool with a kids pool and separate hot tub. There are two clubhouses, both with great book exchanges, common areas, volleyball court and tennis/pickleball courts. There’s a large clean laundry room and a pretty nice exercise room with six cardio machines. The park is separated into two sides: both are open with large sites. Staff is very nice. We would stay here again.
Stub Stewart has two campgrounds. 78 full hook-up sites (50 amp, 50 ft sites), all ADA compliant with picnic tables and fire rings. There 78 sites are separated into two areas: Dairy Creek Camp West has 43 sites and is a bit more treed, and Dairy Creek Camp East has 35 sites and is much more open (you can practically see every site from any site). Each camping area has flush toilets and free hot showers. Verizon coverage good. Hosts not very friendly and park rangers were difficult to find.
Rate reflects RPI plus 10% tax. The location is great, just south of Newport and ¼ mile from the beach, which thee is a trail. All sites have 50-amp, full hook-ups, although non-Thousand Trail members cannot stay at the north side with more open. There are a couple club houses, some activities (mostly revolving around food), a decent store that rents DVDs for $1, large, well maintained pool & hot tub, and the staff if very friendly. Verizon coverage is terrible, but there is free (very good Wi-Fi) in the north club house.
Rate reflects weekly rate of $249/week. The RV park is very nice and very well maintained. Every site has green grass, a nice large shade tree, a clean picnic table, full hook-ups, free basic cable and free Wi-Fi. The staff has been very friendly and welcoming as well. They allow dogs, but there are plenty of signs stating, “no wetting, no waste” in a variety of areas. The Tualatin River borders the back-end of the park, and there is a two-mile nature trail adjacent to the RV Park. We would stay here again.
Rate of $14 included $10 RPI, $3 “resort” fee and tax. This campground definitely has it’s good points and not so good points. Good ~ well forested with lots of mature trees – gives a feel of a state park; sites are large and private; very quiet; clean, but rundown; staff (the one guy we spoke to) was nice; sites have picnic tables and fire pits. Not so Good ~ the “clubhouse” is an old, musty single-wide trailer that just gives off an “icky” feel; the dump station (not all sites are full-hook ups) is nearly impossible to get to – a narrow road outside of the main campground that has huge potholes and standing water.
Rate reflects RPI membership rate ($10) plus tax. It’s a pretty nice park, albeit simple. The sites are a bit close together, but clean and with a picnic table. The park is very well maintained and the employees very friendly. There are a few activities in the clubhouse, a book exchange, free DVD rentals, community firepit (bring your own wood), the typical puzzle, games, etc… in the clubhouse. It’s a very quiet campground with resident deer that meander in the early evenings. As previous posters mentioned – no laundry and no 50amp. Verizon cell coverage works well (for phone) and okay (seems to struggle late afternoon) for 3G internet coverage. Cable TV is $3 extra per night; don’t know about Wi-Fi cost – only available in clubhouse. We would stay here again.
Great campground! Easy access to lake, lovely camp hosts, clean and free hot showers and restrooms. There are a couple washer and dryers also. The only negative - some of the sites were right on top of each other - careful when selecting your site if you want a bit more privacy. Would definitely stay here again.
Let’s start with the pros: All sites are full hook-ups, including cable (which works just okay). They offer WiFi, and it works! There is a nice activity center with some activities. Their laundry room is okay, a fairly large book exchange, and they have the typical resort amenities -- horseshoes, playground, shuffleboard, mini-golf, swimming pool & spa. The staff is exceptionally nice! Now the cons, of which there is only one, but it’s a big one: The sites are incredibly close together. With slides out, no joke, there is maybe a foot between rigs! Also - note that Western Horizons is now charging RPI, AOR, C2C, and other clubs $5/night on top of the $10 rate.
Located just inside the Lake Mead National Recreation Area on the edge of Boulder City is the Lake Mead RV Village. Lake Mead RV Village is a concessionaire of the National Parks Service. This campground offers 115 full-hookup (including cable TV) sites which includes; pull-thrus, group camping and, for a few extra dollars, sites that offer unobstructed views of the lake. Even if you don't spend the extra few dollars for the lake view, most of the sites offer at least small views of the beautiful deep blue waters of Lake Mead and the surrounding red rock mountains. This campground has a general store where you can purchase a few basic supplies or a snack, laundry and showers, as well as horseshoe pits and a bocce ball court. Lake Mead RV Village is an easy walk from the waters edge. The park is clean and all the sites are of average size, level and gravel with a concrete patio slab. On the perimeter of this park there are many mobile homes for the permanent residents, which honestly takes a little away from this beautiful setting.
Ridgeview RV Resort is a Sunrise Resort in Bullhead City, Arizona, just over the border from Laughlin, Nevada, near the Colorado River. We stayed here under RPI and enjoyed the park. The roads are paved, and each site is desert dirt/gravel, and all are back-in; there are no pull-throughs. There is free, very good WiFI available at the Activity Center, lots of activities planned each day, a decent-sized book exchange, and a pool, yet it’s not in working order these days. The one staff member with whom we spoke was very nice.
Trailer Village is only ½ mile from the rim of the Grand Canyon, is on the shuttle route (the National Park Service has free shuttles to get form place to place). All sites are full hook-ups (including cable) pull-though, and there is recycling in the park. There is no WiFi. There are a few trees, and the staff seems nice.
Rancho Sedona RV Park is a nice RV park, with trees, shrubs, and flowers in bloom. There are full hook-up sites as well as electric/water only sites, bathrooms, showers, laundry, a book exchange, and large fire pits centrally located to share with neighbors. There is free, working WiFi, an enclosed dog park, recycling, and river access. The staff, however, was just okay. The rate reflects the weekly rate, plus tax.
Camp Verde RV Resort is a Western Horizon Resort and we’re staying here under RPI. It is a small RV resort with an activity center, pool and hot tub, laundry, book exchange, pickleball courts, shuffleboard, and activities scheduled daily. The staff (well, the one woman with whom we spoke) was nice, and as typical with Western Horizon Resorts, their WiFi is not reliable.
Gilbert Ray is a Pima County Park and is located south and adjacent to the western Saguaro National Park in the Tucson Mountains. This campground puts you in the middle of beautiful Sonora Desert full of saguaro cacti, mesquite trees, Gila woodpeckers (the ones that nest in the Saguaros), hummingbirds and great views of the Tucson Mountains looking east. It’s a great campground and locale for exploring this fabulous area. The campground has electricity only (no water or sewer at the sites). However, each loop has several water spigots and restrooms (no showers on the premises), and there are dump stations as well. The campground roads are all paved and each site being gravel, so dust is not a problem. The cost is $20 for RVs and $10 for tents.
The Fairgrounds are quite large - they have some full hook-up sites, some with water & electric only, and of course, some dry camping. The fee is $20/night for full hook-ups, and a weekly rate of $100, so if you’re staying for 5 days, you might as well stay for a week. Overall the place is typical of fairgrounds – not the cleanest, but reasonably priced and easy access to area attractions. They do have free wifi, which works on-and-off.
Valley Vista RV Resort is a Sunbelt property (owned by Western Horizons) and we stayed here under Resort Parks International. The park is okay - the sites are rather on top of each other and clean, but not graveled - sort of a mixture of gravel and dirt/sand. There is a club house with a pool table, card tables, large book exchange and TV. The laundry room has about 5 washers & 5 dryers and is spacious and clean. There is a nice pool, a bit smallish but warm, and a hot tub in the same area. The activities are plentiful, with various card games, shuffleboard, pot lucks, and a variety of other games. Two very good things about this park ~ the staff is very nice and the WiFI works and works well!
The park is pretty typical of the desert RV parks we've stayed - open sites with gravel in which to park your rig. Each site is quite large and offers a large concrete pad. There is a swimming pool, hot tub, and patio area, a large and well-stocked library, an equally large laundry room with more than a dozen washers and dyers, a large card room with about 6 round tables, a billiards room with four tables, a decent sized exercise room with some cardio equipment and weight machines (in okay shape). The one issue- like most Western Horizon Resorts - the wi-fi - you cannot use the wi-fi between 7:00am-5:30pm, as it is used only by the employees during that time.
We paid just under $30 with the weekly rate. This is a private, age 55+ RV resort. The resort is very well maintained - all the roads are paved with each site having a concrete patio and groomed pea-gravel for the rigs, a d complete club house, well stocked library, a computer room with four guest computers, a large laundry room (12 washers and 12 dryers), billiards room, card room, general purpose room, and a beautiful pool and hot tub area that has views of the nearby mountain tops. There is also a complete exercise room with various machines and free weights. The water pressure is great! The downside to this park is that their free Wi-Fi is not reliable. The more people who use it, the slower it gets - very early in the morning it is fast, but quickly becomes unusable, which is frustrating. We will definitely stay here again.
We are here for a week or so under RPI, yet is it’s also a KOA campground (for $50/night). All sites are full-service, all rather open with a few trees in some areas. There is a central activity center, a billiard room, small book exchange, free Wi-Fi, and laundry. Behind the Activity Center is the pool and hot tub. There are also horseshoe pits, shuffleboard courts, and mini golf. Here’s the low-down: it’s a decent location to explore Yuma and the surrounding area (we like that it’s a bit north of town – less noise), but it’s not a great park –the bathrooms and buildings need a renovation, the “campground” is basically a gravel parking lot, and although pretty, the surrounding area is agriculture, which means crop-dusting planes flying overhead and farm machinery working at all hours.
We stayer here under RPI. The park lies on the banks of the Colorado River and provides a large paved boat ramp for launching watercraft. There is also a well maintained heated pool and two hot tubs. There is a centrally located nice large club house used for meals, games and the occasional presentation. There is also an adjoining laundry room (one washer is a front-loader) that includes a small sitting area where you can watch TV or work on a puzzle while you wait. The park also has a separate Activities Center that includes a library (not an exchange) with a great selection of books, a pool table and a separate room where crafts are offered. The park offers a pretty full schedule of activities each week and is an easy drive to the towns of Blythe, California and Quartzsite, Arizona.
Indian Waters RV Park is a Western Horizons park and part of the RPI network. There are two different sections - one for Western Horizon's members, and one for RPI/AOR members. The $12 rate includes $2 for electric (not 50amp). All the sites are large with a concrete pad to park your rig, the area for members is grassy with full hook-ups and the area for non-members is gravel with only electric and water. There is no cable throughout the park, and wifi is free, although it is terrible. Western Horizons knows their wifi is bad because they even give you a disclaimer when you check-in of the reasons they think it's bad. However they just need to spend a bit more money and get some more bandwidth. The positives of Indian Waters - it is clean, has a pool and hot tub, horseshoes, shuffleboard, a dining area and lot of activities. There is a social room with a small book exchange. Quite honestly, we probably would not come back to this park - the segregation just gives the place a negative vibe.
We are staying here via RPI and this is one of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed - the sites are clean, large, have some privacy with flowering shrubs - there are many, many activities, five nice swimming pools - two (the spas) at the adult center and three at the family center. The family center also has a large lodge-type facility with many potlucks planned. The adult center has a large area for games, a book exchange, poker room, pool room, and small restaurant. There is a great off-leash dog are (actually three, so dogs that do not get along can be separated) with shade trees, toys, water bowls - chairs for the parents -the works! There are two laundromats which are both very nice, and it happens to be the least expensive laundry we've found so far. The staff is also incredibly nice - we even had someone stop by and welcome us to the park. If you want cable, it costs $1/day (our antenna works fine), and 50 amps will cost $17 under RPI.
Santa Fe RV Resort is close to all of the tourist places one would want to see in San Diego, such as SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo. This campground has a lot of positives - a nice pool, a very nice clubhouse with pool table, full kitchen, nice exercise area with weights, nice laundry room, clean bathrooms, free WiFI and free cable, as well as full hook-ups at every site. In addition, AAA and Good Sam's members receive 10% off the rates, and Passport America members get 50% off the rates. The biggest negative is it's location - it's very,very close to I-5, a major highway, so it's noisy.
This is a very nice park, about 1/2 mile to Disneyland. They have a variety of RV sites, some pull-through, and all sites are full hook-ups with a small patch of grass. There is an RV wash ($1 per minute) pool, a great laundry room, store, free wifi, small arcade, and playground. What is the nicest thing about this RV park is the staff - every person we have met, either in person, telephone, or email, has been extremely nice and helpful. There is a shuttle to Disneyland ($3 round trip), or you can walk. We highly recommend this place if in the area. Rate reflects a break in the $45/night charge if staying a week.
Camped here as an Resort Parks International member. Rancho Oso is a horse ranch, so the cool thing is that there are a lot of horses around as you drive in. They do offer trail rides and a few other ranch activities. The facilities are very nice - there is a well-maintained adult lodge with free, albeit slow, wifi, a pool table, book exchange, tv, common areas, etc. There is a family lodge for the kids to enjoy, 2 pools (one heated year-round), a hot tub, mini-golf, horseshoes, tennis, basketball, etc. There are a lot of activities and meals, and what's nice, is it's year-round (too many campgrounds stop the fun activities off-season). All this being said, however, we were disappointed that the camping spots weren't nicer - it's dusty here - no grass. The campground is row-upon-row of RV sites, and although decent in size, they're just dirt, not even a concrete slab. You are in the middle of nowhere, so whether this is good or bad is up to you - it's about 30 minutes to Santa Barbara.
It is a nice place and just a short walk to a great beach by the Morro Rock. (In fact, there are views of The Rock from most places in the campground.) The campground is also located within walking distance (about a mile) of the harbor and tourist areas. Morro Dunes offers RV sites with full hookups with or without TV, free WiFi, and many tent sites. There are several shower and laundry facilities conveniently located throughout the park. The only down side is that the park is very compact, meaning sites are close together and the adjacent property to the east is the water treatment plant for the city of Morro Bay. So far there hasn't been an odor problem. We would stay here again.
This "RV park" is the parking lot right between all the horse stables and a golf course. Each site comes with full hookups, free WI-FI and if you are lucky like we are, a direct view of the stables. It is very clean, well maintained, the host is very helpful and there are several large live oaks that provide shade for some of the sites. This location puts you very close to the old downtown area of Monterey and Fisherman's Wharf, and with a little ambition you could even ride bikes to these areas. Although the Fairgrounds is next to the airport, there is not constant air traffic so the noise is minimal. A couple negatives which caused us to rate this a 6, rather than a 7 - every 2 sites share an electrical box with one 50 amp, one 30 amp, and one 20 amp, so if you're not the first one to get the amps you want, then you're stuck. Also, every-other site has sewer on the passenger side of the rig, so if your sewer hook-up to your rig is on the driver side, you need a long 30' sewer hose (and water and electrical cord too). All that being said, we would definitely stay here again.
We stayed here for a couple days while we had business in San Jose. There are many full-time residents, yet the park is well maintained and clean, with some grass between sites. There is free Wi-FI, and the signal is very good. They do have a swimming pool & jacuzzi as well. The staff seems nice. We'd stay here again.
This is 5 miles west of the Yosemite National Park border, however there is still a 30 minute drive to Yosemite Valley, and we are staying under RPI, so the rate is great. However, being it's not the summer season, there is just one area open to RVs, with minimal amenities available (such as the activity center). There are full hook-ups, free wifi at the clubhouse, a great laundry room with front-loading washers and dryers, a clubhouse with adult area, and the usually book exchange. There are only a few staff here this time of year, and everyone has been very nice and accommodating. We would rate this higher if we had the amenities available to us, but it is off-season.
We stayed here through our Resort Parks International membership. The campground is nice - some treed sites as well as some open. They provide a nice map when you arrive and it details which sites are good for roof-top satellites and which work better for tri-pod mounts. No sewer at sites, but there is water & electric. Each loop has bathrooms w/showers and laundry - one front loader washer & dryer. The Clubhouse has book exchange, TV with cable, free Wi-Fi, telephone, puzzles & games. It is a nice place.
The Two Medicine Campground has 99 sites, no hook-ups but can house larger rigs, and has bathrooms and potable water. It’s a fairly remote campground, but we liked it because of that fact. It’s first come-first served.
Many Glacier Campground is our favorite in Glacier National Park, and since it is also first come-first served, and very popular, you have to get there about 9-10 AM to get a site. There are very few sites that accommodate big rigs (>25’), but there are a few. There is great wildlife viewing in the campground
There are two campgrounds in Waterton Lakes: the Townsite Campground and Crandall Campground. The Townsite Campground is right in the town, which is nice because you can walk or bike right to the town. They do take reservations, which we recommend because we couldn’t stay as long as we had wanted. There are some fully-serviced sites as well. One nice thing about the Canadian National Parks is free hot showers!! There are bathrooms of course, and outdoor shelters with wood stoves and picnic tables to use – free to anyone who wants to use. There are deer roaming in the campground as well, and tons and tons of ground squirrels. It’s a very open campground and can be quite windy. We stayed at Crandall Campground when we visited in 2007, and it’s away from the town, but much more treed and cooler since it’s at a higher elevation. There is a lot of opportunity to see wildlife, although no hot showers and space is somewhat limited for larger rigs. It’s good if you want to be more secluded. There are no reservations here; it’s first come-first served.
We stayed here so we could go to the Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump Heritage Centre (it’s the closest campground to the center). It’s a small, family-owned campground. It was quite nice, a Good Sam’s park but not AAA. We stayed in site 1 and had shade most the day. WiFi was for $4 per day. Fire pits at each site. Free showers. Laundry was $4 to wash and dry one load. The owners/operators were friendly and nice. A good place to stop if you want to spend a good part of a day visiting the Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump.
This is just an okay park – the RVs are jammed in, with overflow in on the front lawn without services. The staff wasn’t very nice overall, and their wifi was out the entire time, even though they advertise free wifi. They have weekly rates, but not on the pull-through sites, which were the only ones available for when we wanted to stay. The pull through sites ended up being the nicest, with the most space and a small patch of green grass, but no trees, thus no shade. Get this – there is no sanitation (dump) on site, so if you happen to be next to a vacant pull through site, that’s where they tell people to go dump, so in effect, you’re camping next to the sanitation/dump. (We wonder if that’s legal, but what do we know…..)There is an RV store on the premises, but quite expensive and, not surprising, not the nicest people there either. There is propane, but better prices are found in town. Two positive comments: there is a large nice laundry room, with dryers that actually dry, and, in looking at other RV parks in the area, this may actually be the best one…….
There are two campgrounds in Elk Island NP, both without hook-ups of any kind - one is for tents or trailers. It is the nicer of the two, with trees, fire pits, washrooms with lukewarm showers, and picnic table. It was rather empty when we were there, but it was during the week (we arrived on Monday, left on a Friday); we found good camping without a reservation but were told that they do fill on the weekends. The other campground is for RVs only, and is basically a parking lot with fire pits and picnic tables. It was empty when we were there, and it seems as if it would have a parking lot feel if it were full of RVers.
There are tons of campgrounds in Jasper and Banff, and Whistler Campground in Jasper is the largest by far, with over 600 sites. In fact, it seemed too big for the staff, as many rules (such as bare camping) were not enforced. As with the other Canadian National Park campgrounds, there were washrooms and hot showers provided, as well as fire pits and firewood. The very cool thing about Whistler Campground is the herd of elk that frequent the campground – in fact, they often came into our site to eat and would walk within 4 feet of us when we would be enjoying the evening outside or they slept under the low spruce branches near our trailer.
The Lake Louise area of Banff National Park has a small town (not really much of one) and two campgrounds – one for tents that’s in an electric fence and one for trailers. Some trailer sites are shared sites, which is two trailers park side-by-side, but each “site” still has its own area with a picnic table and electric. There were free good hot showers and washrooms. They also offer nightly ranger talks in the tent area of the campground. You can hear the train – day and night, but it isn’t too loud.
We stayed at Radium Valley Vacation Resort for 4 nights, and chose it because it was an RPI Park. It was a very nice park. Each site had a grassy area, a pavilion with a picnic table and barbecue (you pay an additional $1/day, minimum $5, for propane). There was a recreation center with 2 pools (one indoor, one outdoor), a hot tub, showers, washrooms, book exchange, library, game rooms with table games, family room with TV, adult lounge with TV, etc. They also had laundry and washrooms with free hot showers. There is cable TV at each site as well. It was a clean, spacious park, and well maintained.
The campground is very clean and well-treed, and the husband/wife couple who own the place are exceptionally nice. They have laundry, washrooms with free hot showers, free WiFi, book exchange, etc. It is a small, compact 44-site campground, but quaint and quiet. As far as we are concerned, this is the place to stay in Creston. On another note - the US border is only 8 miles away and there is much less expensive gas there, rather than paying in Canada.
Cascade Cove is about 1 mile past the town area right off highway 3. This is a small family run campground located on the Kettle River and very close to the the world famous Kettle Valley Railway and Trans Canada Trail. Cascade Cove has 50 sites with Wi-Fi access and provides 8 minute showers for $1. There are also a very nice laundry facility and a playground for the kids. All sites have plenty of grass and come with a fire pit. A short walk down to Kettle River and you will find a nice swimming cove that is private to registered guess. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a very nice, well treed, clean private park. It's just south of Fort Bragg - there is a decent laundry facility, wifi (although not every site gets a great signal, which is why we rate it a 7), full hook-ups including cable, and a nice staff. The do not take AAA, but do take Good Sam's, which saves 10% off the published rate of $40. NO weekly rates, either.
This is a good park to stay if you are in the Eureka area and want a place to satisfy your basic RVing needs - full hook-ups and free WI-FI. The rate is normally $25/night, but with AAA or Good Sam's, it's $20/night.
We stayed here through RPI and loved it! The staff was extremely friendly and the sites well-maintained and large. There were 3 pools – one for adults only, and two hot tubs – again, one for adults only. They had a great exercise room – fully equipped and clean. There are three restaurants on-site, two of which we tried and were 100% pleased. There is free WIFI in the Community Center, which also has puzzles, a large book exchange, games, activities, pool table, and more. The security was excellent – we felt safe and had no concerns leaving our bikes outside anywhere and not locked. They had a full recycling center, a par two golf course, and lake where you could boat or swim.
We stayed here through RPI Preferred and were very disappointed. The Pros: close access to the town of La Conner and the marina. The Cons: small sites, in fact, everyone needs to park their tow vehicle or toad off-site on public streets; the staff was not friendly; security was not 24 hours; the “grass” was brown, dried weeds; poorly maintained grounds & facilities. They have a pool which we did not use, the same goes for the weight room and community area.
We stayed here through RPI Preferred – it would rate a 10 if the sites had sewer. There is a nice community/activity center with free WIFI, puzzles, a book exchange, TV and games. They serve meals here as well, and we enjoyed very good Belgium Waffles one morning. The (outdoor) pool area is very nice and clean, with an equally clean indoor hot tub. Near the pool area is a family center with TV, games & puzzles, a couple exercise machines, and showers. There are two shower areas, both of which were clean. The laundry facilities were nice as well. The sites range from trees with some privacy to open with a bit more “on top of each other” feel. The staff was very nice, as well as the volunteers.
We stayed here through RPI Preferred, and it was clean, well-maintained, had newer showers, nice laundry facilities, and a community room with a book exchange/travel information. WIFI is provided at a cost, there is a required $3/day electricity charge and an optional $2/day for cable (about 6 channels). Sites are grassy, but on-top of each other, which was okay during the off-season, but may be too much in-season. Nice river views. Also has a boat dock.
