This is an OK park. But I will not be staying here again. Why? Trains and smoke. The train noise is loud but the main thing that annoyed me was that as the trains passed by the ground shook. Not a lot but it was like being on a boat in slightly choppy water. The park has fire pits, which create smoke. Even when there were no fires going we could smell the smoke. The park can't do anything about the trains but they could remove the fire pits. On the positive side there was good 50 amp electric, adequate water, and a good tight sewer connection. Were it not for the trains and the smoke I would give the park a 9.
Improvements: Wi-Fi that is very good. New online reservations that leave something to be desired. New gravel throughout - no more pot holes. But the same and needs help: the electricity is only 30 amp but voltage is as low as 102 in the morning. That is unsafe - appliances groan. And there was a outage one morning which lasted only seconds but the DirecTV system reset in my coach. And I lost the work I was doing on my computer. It could be a great park if they improved the electric service. Can't beat the location, location, location - right on the harbor.
This jewel is getting to be known. The park was almost full. Reservations recommended. I had a pull-through which was very nice. The park is mostly concrete with shrubs/trees between the spaces. And if you need to store your rig there is an onsite storage area that can hold a rig up to 50 feet long. This was my first time at this park but will not be my last.
I have stayed at this resort a number of times before and it is now better than ever. Flowers everywhere. They just added a stairway from/to the upper level - makes it easy to get to the clubhouse. Close to the Siletz Bay and crabbing which I plan to do. Staff is very helpful.
I have stayed at this park a number of times in the past. New, younger managers are making a big difference. Landscaping is being well maintained. The pond has been cleaned up. The new storage area is almost full. I will stay here again when in the area.
I read the prior reviews and they are accurate. This is one of the best parks on the Oregon coast: bar none. I'm here over Labor Day weekend. The park is full but it does not seem overcrowded. The Wi-Fi is good. I'm using it to write this review. The park looks better than the last time I was here. Even the nice, green grass between the pads is trimmed with an edger. I will stay here again when in the area.
This is an older park that has been nicely maintained. Gravel roads and wide grassy pads. Good staging area when you pull in. Good Wi-Fi. I'm using it now to write this review. Very good, extended cable TV. About 60 channels. Close to the Pacific Ocean and Willapa Bay. Very quite. Has a visitor's lounge. Full service kitchen with barbeque. Fish and oyster cleaning building. Very large tent area. Very pet friendly. Some permanent residents but quiet and neat. A couple grocery stores a short distance from the park. I will stay here again when in the area.
Until recently this park was for AirStream owners only. They have opened it to all RV'ers. You can stay for 2 weeks and a max of a month during any year. Great clubhouse, close to Olympia's attractions, not too pricey. It is one huge gravel parking lot with hook-ups, no landscaping, no pull-throughs, poor 30 amp - my electricity went out once. No online reservations but can phone or email. There is space for 160 rigs but there were at most 25 in the park while I was there. The park is located in Lacey but their address is 9101 Steilacoom Road SE, Olympia, WA 98513. I wish there was a better park in the area. I may stay here again.
I have stayed at this park a number of times before and can only say it has not improved at all. In fact it is going downhill. Pads are gravel which are now mostly dirt. My pad had a number of potholes which filled with an overnight rain. I had to walk thru them to get to my car. Electricity is 30 amp, but very weak. I had only 103 volts most mornings causing my microwave to groan. The city spends no money on maintenance. Does not spend any of the revenue on the park, but it goes into the cities general Parks and Rec fund. And they are generating about $10,000 per month from the park. I sure wish there was a better park in the area. They say there are plans to add Wi-Fi and reservations next year. A work camper host is useless. I never saw him interacting with the guests. There were no handouts telling about the many amenities in Oak Harbor. A typical publicly run facility. There is no person or persons who have a vested interest it making the park what it could be - a jewel on Oak Harbor.
What used to be a pretty nice RV park is not any more. In order to get into the park you need to take a dusty road behind the casino. Then go into the hotel lobby to register. I had reserved a pull through but was assigned a back in. The problem is that the back ins only have 30 amp service. After some arm twisting I was given a pull through. You no longer pay up front for the space but have to check-out upon leaving. They don't have a clue as to how to assign spaces. There were camper shells occupying the pull throughs and big rigs in the back ins. If only they knew how to manage an RV Park. And at $38 it is hardly worth it.
I have stayed here a number of times while visiting my kids/grandkids who live in the area. There is not much to say about the park except it is probably the best in the north SF area. Spaces are narrow and not very long. Can't put an awning out the whole way. It is difficult to get level on many of the places. Sewer connection run up hill. I sure wish someone would build something nicer.
I have stayed at this resort a number of times. And each time it gets better. Management is doing a magnificent job of keeping the place looking great. The new section's landscaping is starting to mature. Would not it be wonderful if all RV parks were this well maintained? I will surely stay here again when driving through the area. Note: I changed the total number of sites to 108. There are 103 RV pads, 2 Yurts, 1 Cabin, and 2 tent sites.
This is a parking lot with hookups. Maintenance is going down hill. I had to use a pair of pliers to turn on the water. I told the manager and she did not seem very concerned. I paid by credit card which meant that I had to go into her mobile home. I sure wish there was something better in the area.
The park is about 1/2 mile west of the East Valley RV Specialists repair facility on Apache Trail. I had some repair work done there. Address of Western Acres is 10020 E Apache Trail. They have about 10 pull-throughs. There are about 100 spaces in the park. Most spaces are used by full-timers living in lower cost rigs. Lady who runs it is nice. $30 per night was pricey for what you get. She quoted me $395 per month. I don't know if it is more during peak season. I will stay here again if necessary.
This is a good stop when heading south to Indio and avoids going over the Grapevine and through the north part of Los Angeles. I have stayed here a number of times before. The park is part of the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds. If you want to pay using a credit card then register with the camp host after she gets back from her teaching job.
I agree with most other reviews. The only thing I added is that at $38 the park is way over priced for what you get. Narrow gravel sites. Close to your neighbor. Maintenance is poor. Grass is mostly dead. I called on the 16th to make a reservation. They called my back today - the 19th. And I stayed there on the 17th and 18th. It is 11 miles to the nearest town [Coalinga]. I will not stay here again at $38 per night - ouch.
This is just an OK park. The office is a mess. Big rigs are given two spaces and park sideways so as to fit on what used to be side-by-side spaces. Landscaping is overgrown. Needs someone to do a lot of trimming. It was convenient being about 100 miles south of San Francisco. I will stay here again if desperate.
I have stayed at this park a number of times. It is an OK park for a couple days. The park was recently sold to a new owner. Improvements are planned. Spaces are long but somewhat un-level. I was able to use my automatic levelers and the coach did level automatically. I will stay here again when in the area. I wish there was something nicer - but...
About Pear Tree - It is a small park associated with the America's Best Motel. Check in at the motel office. Good hook-ups. Reasonably wide spaces. Lots of long term residents. On my paved site a prior renter lost most of his transmission fluid and it was still on the pad. The park owner did not seem concerned about the spill. There must have been 10 gallons of transmission fluid on the pad which I had to work around. I did not want to track it into my coach. The park is very close to I-5 and the noise is loud and incessant. I may stay here again when in the area.
A very nice park, conveniently located off I-5. It is about a mile from the freeway so there is no noise. They recently added an off leash dog run, a fenced RV storage area, and discounted propane (to guests). The landscaping is starting to mature. Tents are allowed, but there is no specific tent area. I will stay here again when in the area.
Thank you ODOT. Why? Because you repaved I-5, and the noise level is dramatically reduced. You used smooth asphalt. Thanks. I have stayed at this great resort before, and the only complaint was the noise from I-5. It is so much better now. The weekly, Friday night, happy hour is new and was enjoyable - BYOB. Nice hors d'oeuvres provided by the resort. I will return.
I have stayed at this park a number of times. I have noticed an improvement in the landscaping: especially the grass between the pads. And there is now a young enthusiastic couple managing the park. Be sure to make a reservation: the park is often booked solid many nights especially the weekends. Great location. Great sunsets. Note: Tents are allowed if they are overflow for the camper. There are no separate tent sites. There is an indoor spa, but no swimming pool.
The main reason for writing this review is to refute the comment about the tight entrance. I have a 40 foot motor coach pulling a car and I had no trouble parking in the entrance staging area then driving to my pad with car attached. I have stayed here a number of times in the past and I will stay here again when in the area. I especially like to use the free 600 movie DVD lending library.
I agree with other comments. Warning: Don't take exit 18 off I-84. Take exit 17 and come through Troutdale. They have changed the entrance to the park. And if you take exit 18 you come into a very narrow road with a one lane bridge. After you cross the bridge you will not see the sign for the entrance. The old entrance is now marked as the exit. So I had to go into the town to find a place to turnaround. They should put an entrance sign that can be seen if you do take exit 18. Lots of permanent residents who spend the summer here. Sites are well maintained though. I may stay again when in the area.
Based upon reviews that others have submitted, I almost passed on this park. I would have give this park a 10 except that they way I pulled onto the my space, my coach would not automatically level. Otherwise it was a nice experience. I will stay here again when in the area.
I agree with all prior comments. I gave the park a 7 for the following negative reason: the 1/2 mile entry road is not paved. My coach and car were covered with dust. And it is only one lane. Only a few spaces have a sewer connection. There is a dump station at the exit. I was never able to connect to the park's Wi-Fi. Had to use a Verizon card which worked OK even though the signal was not very strong. Big Timber is a tired town. Store fronts not attractive. Streets not well maintained. On the positive side, the location is beautiful. Had a good breakfast at the Timber Bar.
I don't know how anyone could rate this park higher than a 5. The park does not look anything like their web site. There is nothing green in the park. The office is a cluttered mess. And at $37 with a discount, it is surely over priced. I will never stay here again. They need to do some 'truth in advertising.'
There are two different areas at this park. The older portion is in the lower level. It is a shaded area with gravel roads and pads. Water and electric and 30 amp in the older area. There are 9 concrete pull through sites in the upper level with water, 50 amp electric and sewer connections. There are some back-ins in the upper level mostly occupied by monthly renters. There are 4 camping cabins. Good space for tents. The park is affiliated with the American Inn motel which is just north of the park. Check in at the motel. Good, long term friendly management who also own 1880 Town. I will stay here again when in the area. Not too far to the Badlands and Mount Rushmore.
This is a basic RV Park with good hook-ups. Close to the Missouri River for boating and fishing. Open year round and it's undergoing upgrades. It was operated by a mom but is now being managed by her three sons. Tents not allowed. Self contained rigs only because there are no restrooms or showers. There is no clubhouse. New web site to be online shortly. Be sure to call to make a reservation. I will stay here again when in the area.
This is a nice, small city owned park. There are about 15 concrete pads some with 50 amp service. First come first served. I nosed-in and had a view of the small lake just to the north. Very scenic. Wi-Fi is free and good. It is supplied by the city. I'm using it to submit this review. Wi-Fi perhaps throughout the city. The park was a pleasant surprise. I will stay here again.
I agree with others comments. I add: The entry is on a one lane paved road with overhanging tree limbs. It looks like you are entering a forest but alas the pads are on the north end of the park. I was told that there are plans to remove some of the trees and overhanging limbs. I arrived on a Sunday morning and the place was almost full. By later Sunday the park was almost empty. Lots of weekend campers. I will stay again when in the area.
This park opened in July 2011. Only 39 RV sites. It fills up almost every night. I have seen the No Vacancy sign up the entire time I've been here. Be sure to make a reservation. They just got a new web site: www.kearneyrvpark.com. Good 50 amp, good water and sewer. Someone is not in the office all the time, but the contact number is a cell phone.
Shade. It was 100+ while I stayed here and the shade trees were nice. I stayed in a space that was shaded but still was able to get satellite TV. Pads are loose, sandy gravel and roads are the same. Would be nice if there was some pavement. Tracked sand and loose gravel into the coach. Mostly kids at the front desk. Would be better if they had mature workcampers. Lots of Western Theme things to see and do. Another plus: about 2 miles to a Super Wal-Mart.
This is an older park undergoing renovation. Easy access from I-76. Convenience store on site. 20 spaces and 4 with 50 amp. No shower or restroom but they are planned. Gravel roads, grass pads. Cable TV connection available but need to call local cable company to activate. Friendly lady is the manager/owner. I will stay here again when in the area.
I'm sitting here sweltering in the 90+ heat. 30 amp only and very low voltage; right now 99 volts. I may have to turn on my generator. Gravel road. Parallel parking. Not much going for it. I'm out of here tomorrow and will not return.
I don't know how anyone could rate this park a 9. I am being generous giving it a 7. The park is very tired. Roads are tired - lots of pot holes. Pads are tired - lots of broken concrete. Pedestals are tired - most are leaning. Street signs and mail boxes are tired - rusted, leaning. The only thing going for it is the trees - nice shade. And it is close to a Super Target and Costco. I will not stay here again.
I agree with earlier reviewers. I just wanted to mention the Verizon service. I was told, when I made the reservation that the Verizon signal would not be good, but I had no trouble getting a voice or air card to work. So maybe Verizon has improved their signal quality recently. An OK overnight stop. Great views. Great spring water. Great staff. I will stay here again when in the area.
This is a very tired KOA. Sites are gravel. Some roads are paved but need to be replaced badly. Lots of workcampers run the place. They were friendly. I was told there are new owners who are trying to fix up the place. DO NOT stay in the first couple of rows. Noise from I-25 is constant and loud. If I ever stay here again I will get a space as far away from I-25 as possible.
When I arrived there was no one in the office. I was greeted by two barking dogs. There was no indication what site I should use. A man who lives in the park told me where to park. I have been RVing full time since 2004, and this is by far the worst park I've ever stayed in. How someone could have given this park a 10 beats me. DO NOT STAY HERE.
I don't understand why Good Sam and Woodall's give this park such high ratings. Pads are narrow with side-by-side hookups. Streets are very narrow and the pavement is in poor shape. Gravel on pads is very thin. Lots of dust when windy. Lots of permanent residents. I will stay here again only if desperate.
This is a 'cheap' park. Lots of permanent residents because it is so cheap. Nice clubhouse. Not so nice receptionist. There is a charge of $5 per night for Wi-Fi. Unlevel spaces. Water connection is hard to get to. Gravel spaces and very thin. I will not stay here again.
I have stayed at this park a number of times. It is one of the few RV parks in the Phoenix area. Most now cater to park models. The $27 rate is based upon the monthly rate of about $800 - a little pricey. It is owned by the Indian casino. They are not putting any money into the park, and it is starting to look a little run down. Roads and landscaping need help. I wish there was a well run RV Park in the area that would give them some competition.
I stayed here a week after leaving the 100 degree weather in Phoenix. Nice and cool. The park is OK but nothing special. All gravel. Big dog run. Nice lady runs the office. Rate is based upon $150 for the week. Elevation 6500. They are busy in the summer, but it is open year round. No trees in the newer section and good for satellite TV. They charge for wi-fi. Good Verizon signal so I used my 'air card'.
There are not a lot of RV Parks to chose from in the north SF area. This park is clean and run by nice people. The spaces are very tight. The spaces are so narrow that I could not put out my awning. But it is only 10 miles north of my kids/grand kids. And 20 miles to the Golden Gate Bridge. The sewer connection is 'uphill' and it does not flow uphill. I will stay here again when visiting my kids. But I wish there was something better in the area.
I stayed in the new section. The advantage - small trees so a satellite TV signal is possible. The old section has lots of shade trees which make satellite TV reception questionable. Very hospitable staff. Good local shopping. Grocery store nearby. I will stay here again.
It is hard to rate this park. It is 4 years old but poorly designed. The spaces are very short and not very wide. I could not park my car on my space. I have a 40 foot motor coach. From the north I had to go 4 extra miles south on 101 to Cochrane Road because a left turn on Monterey Road is not possible. And a U-turn is not possible at any intersection. There is a train track nearby with an occasional loud train. But the park seemed almost full with lots of big rigs and 5th wheels. I will probably not stay here again - especially at $55 per night.
I have stayed at the park a few times before. Can't beat the location. An easy walk through the tunnel and down the elevator in the Inn at Spanish Head and I was on the beach. Seems to be some management changes going on. Management has gotten the message about the poor cable TV service. I saw a worker installing a new system. 40 plus channels and decent quality. I will stay here again when in the area.
My first stay at this fine resort. Long and wide concrete pull-through site. Almost all sites are pull-thoroughs. Friendly staff. A pet friendly park. Easy access from freeways. I will stay here again.
An OK park. Connected to the casino. Run by very young people who just don't know how to accommodate guests. They would be much better off with courteous older folks: not kids. The fellow who checked me in had been there only 2 weeks. They still lock the sewer connections. Have to wait for someone to show-up to unlock. I was in row G in a pull-through facing south. If I return I will use a back-in in row F so as to face north. It was very hot in the coach because of the south facing direction. I had to run both roof air conditioners full time during the day.
A nice park with a laundromat next door. 30/50 amp on all pedestals. Large spaces. All gravel. Nice clubhouse with a full kitchen, large screen TV and pool table. Space for about 50 people. Be sure to enter off Mesquite. I gave it a 7 rating but for Quartzsite it is a 10. The best in the area.
The $58 price is calculated based upon the $410 I paid for one week. The park was only about 1/3 full. Lot owners can no longer rent to you directly, all rentals must go through the office. They are having financial issues. Each lot owner was just assessed $8,000 to help cover costs. The water feature that runs through the 9 hole putting course was turned off.
I stayed in this resort most of November. The resort is mostly park models. I was told by a friend to contact a local realtor (Sue Greene [firstname.lastname@example.org]). She gave me the names of 4 people who had RV pads for rent. I rented from one of them. A nose-in to a lake. I was pleased with the amenities. I will return. The rate of $23 was based upon a monthly rate of $700. In high season it is more like $1000+ per month.
