This is a great spot for the family and dogs to be on the river. The "pods" accommodate 3-4 campers, but the location is great if not completely private. These peninsula locations cost more than the other RV sites that are closer to the office. The people are very friendly and there is a lot to do. We gave it a 7 only because of the cost. $50 per night is pretty steep and if you reserve online, it is another $10. At $60, we think this is overpriced. There are no discounts available. Would we stay here again? Probably because it is interesting and a terrific site on the river, but we sure wouldn't stay here for a long time. Two weeks is $700! I think they could at least provider some kind of discounts: AAA, Good Sam, Passport or senior discounts, or perhaps seasonal rates. Its a fun spot, though.
It is a fairly long drive on country roads into the campground, but after questioning our decision to go that far off the main road, we arrived and realized it was a good decision after all. We recommend just taking it easy on the road instead of kicking up a lot of rocks, and it's a little dusty but fine. The people there are amazingly friendly and helpful. The owner even came out to see if he could help with any hooking up issues that might occur. The sites are not completely level, but we were able to use levelers to get things level. I expect this summer they will work on these sites to level them out a bit. They only took over the campground in September, but it looks like they are working now to optimize things. The sites are nicely spaced out and you can get a site right on the desert and have a lovely view. The have a nice laundry, too. And a tennis court that is fenced and they allowed the dogs to run in there, chasing a ball. Everything here is tidy, clean and welcoming. It is really a great spot. My only reservation, and it is a small one. There is a large cross on the hill as you come in and signs announcing bible study classes. Everyone has a right to display their religious preferences as they wish, of course. But for those who have religious preferences other than Christianity or who have no religious preferences, it might be a bit of a put-off for some. Overall, this place is great and the people who staff it are extremely friendly and helpful.
This delightful park is just on the outskirts of Austin. The sites are very nicely spaced with water and electric hook ups and an easy to use dump site. There are lots of trees, and some sites have lovely shade. With the drought, the trees aren't as green, they tell us. Hopefully this year, they will get some rain. If you have dogs, hold on TIGHT. There are herds of deer in the woods. Our lab almost tore my arm off in the dark last night when she smelled or saw them. I would definitely stay here again.
This is a great little surprise park (although not completely a surprise because we read about it on RV Park Reviews). It is right on the Colorado River. There are non-hook up sites right to the river, or hook up sites above the river or full hook up sites in a different area of the park. There is a great place for the dogs to run near the river and swim safely in a little lagoon. I would would given it a 10 except the people at the office weren't all that friendly. Also, they weren't available for ice at the times they said they would be open. The sites are a little bit close together on the hill portion of the park. The ones by the river would be great if you didn't want hookups of any kind. Next time we would do those and boondock.
This is a terrific state park just south of Portland. If you are visiting in Portland, it would take you about 30 minutes to get to most of the city from here. The sites are very nicely spaced, tons of trees and a nice group area which we have used many times. Loop A is older, closer together but great trees. Loop B is newer, farther apart sites, but fewer trees. Both are great. We love camping here every year with our Airstream rally group.
This is a lovely state park, not too far off Highway 10, and well worth the extra miles that it took to get there (not long). It has lots of nice trees (which of course I love) and nicely spaced campsites. We are camping with a friend, and we were able to park right next to each other. Not too many people out and about at this time of year. There is vegetation growing between the sites for more privacy. The people who checked us in were very friendly and welcoming. My only complaint about that was the strong unpleasant smell of cigarette smoke. Yuck. Seems to me people should not be allowed to smoke in that kind of public building. That's the only reason I gave it a 9 vs. a 10. There are great hiking trails, a ton to do. Beware, however, there are ticks galore for the dogs! Make certain you check your pet over and treat with tick stuff before arriving, and then check all your own cracks and crevices. They love to be between your toes.
Great location, friendly people, nice laundry room, clean and tidy. It is right on the river with great views of the barges. We would have given it a 10, but they don't have cable TV, and the super bowl was on! There is limited TV with an antenna in only one area of the park. We would have given it a 10 if there had been cable TV. We liked sites 109 and 108. We would definitely stay here again. They took Passport America or the rate would have been double.
This is a nice little park outside of St. Martinville and Breaux Bridge. I actually think it is quite a bit closer to Breaux Bridge. It has fishing (though not when we were there), a playground, a pool and nice grounds. We would have given this a higher score, but the bathrooms were not very clean, but the worst thing was the laundry room. The washers and dryers were fine, but the smoking in there was awful. When you want clean clothes, the last thing you want is for them to smell like you spent the night in a smoking night club. There are big no smoking signs up, but someone smokes in the ladies room that is attached and it stinks up the whole place. I think it is someone in residence there because as I was doing my laundry, there were three different times that I could smell fresh smoke, really really bad. Someone needs to manage this. We would stay again because the park is nice, but I would never use the laundry room again. The rate of 15$ is with a Passport card.
This is a terrific campground. Don't be dissuaded by the location. You go through kind of an industrial area with some chemical tanks to get there. You might think it is a long ways from Memphis activities, but it really is only about 10 minutes, max. This campground is on the other side of the Mississippi. And right ON the river. We secured a camp site directly on the riverfront. The park is very well kept up, clean, tidy and cheerful. The short stay campground area has a free laundry room with two washers and dryers. So easy! The hosts are friendly. They even come by the campsite to pick up the garbage. Being able to see the river move by with its barges is amazing. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We highly recommend it.
Dave’s RV Park is in a lovely quiet setting east of Vanderhoff, BC. They have had the park for 20 years, and it is clear how much love and care they have put into the park. There is a putting greens area, a huge checker board outside for the kids and pretty flowers. The sites are close together, but not too close. Some of the sites are up against the woods, and others have trees. The restrooms and showers are absolutely spotless, some of the best we have seen on the whole trip. Some of the sites have cable TV and other don’t. The Wi-Fi is great! We caught up on all the old emails with ease. Owner and his wife welcomed us with grace and a warm attitude, something you don’t see all the time at RV parks. I’m sure, over the years, they have made many people feel welcome in Vanderhoff. They sure did us.
We arrived early in the day, about 2 pm, and found a campsite #6 by the water. I think it is one of the best sites at the campground. It is right down by the lake (take the loop to the right) and is on the very end, so there was a lot of privacy. Our friends camped next door. Our site also has a square tent pad that is grassy, and we were able to pitch a screen house on it, a nice way to avoid those mosquitoes. The lake is just gorgeous. Flat and so blue, so very blue. There is a boat launch very close to the site and also the beginning of walking trail. The trail is 4 km round trip. It has some hills, but nothing too stressful to hiking. There is also another hiking trail that departs from the other end of the campground. It is 1.5 km long. The camp host was very friendly, and she brought us wood in a wheelbarrow. By evening, there were very few spaces available, so we were glad we got in early. The cost was $17 per night US. Well worth it. As with all provincial parks, there were no hookups, but there is a place to load with water. There are also recycling and garbage containers. This is a truly lovely park, we would definitely stay here again, but this time, for a week!
This pretty park, just beyond McBride, was a good overnight stop. The lawns are very nicely manicured and there are a variety of site types to chose from. There are some heavily treed, well separated sites at the very back which back up to the river below (fenced), but they don’t get good Wi-Fi reception. There are sites around the edges that back up to the woods but are open on the sides, and then totally open sites on the grass in the middle. The Wi-Fi is one of the best we’ve had on the trip. As with some other RV parks, there are lots of strict rules. I’m not a big rule person myself, but I wasn’t too put off by theirs. The garbage is only at the exit, which was mildly inconvenient. This place has obviously been cared for carefully, and is very tidy and clean. We enjoyed the Giggling Grizzly Pub which is right off to the right as you enter town. The building is just terrific, new, spacious, good selection of foods of all kinds. Also, the people at the visitor’s center were very pleasant. We would definitely stay at this park again.
We stayed here because of the review in the Alaska Camping book. I would have to say it is overrated in that book, in my opinion. It is right on the highway. The really pretty sites in the woods are all tent sites, which is too bad for us, nice for tent campers. The RV sites are mostly all in a big gravel parking lot, but there are a few that back up to the highway, but are in the trees. We chose one of those and because we have a front bedroom, we were not bothered by highway noise at all. The gentleman who runs the place was somewhat gruff with us. We asked for help with the Wi-Fi and he seemed annoyed. Some sites have TV hookups and many do not. It has a wash station for RVs but it wasn’t working when we were there. We did enjoy a meal at the Wolf Den attached to the park. I guess we were expecting more from the park, given the great review. We were somewhat disappointed, and the next day, moved. We had planned a two night stay but only stayed one night.
This was the only park open at the time of year in this location. It is a parking lot and absolutely no more. The man at the desk is friendly (Archie) and it is close to a grocery store and a nice path for walking around the lake. It has hookups, but absolutely no camping feeling for those of us who like trees. If you need a place to stop and park, this is fine. If you want an experience, forget it.
We arrived here after driving through a lot of snow. We had called ahead, thankfully, because they only had five sites open for the season (May). These sites were pretty close together, but they had some really good sites, not open yet, on the lake with hook ups. There is a restaurant there, too. Lots of locals seem to congregate here, it has a warm feel. It looks like they are doing quite a bit of work there on something, not quite sure what, maybe some cabins? We would stay here again. However, it should be noted that it is not close to anything. Muncho Lake is not too far away, maybe an hour.
This is a very nice park about 2 miles from downtown Whitehorse. It is an easy downhill walk to town, but a rough return! Unlike so many RV parks in Canada and Alaska, this place actually is a campground vs. a gravel parking lot. True, in the middle, there are several sites that are side to side in the gravel, but there are plenty of sites, with full hookups, that are nestled into the woods with nice separation between sites. The laundry is spotless, with a large separate area for folding laundry. The gift shop that is part of this park has many locally made products with reasonable prices. The woman at the counter was very helpful and friendly for our entire stay. There is a nice area adjacent to the park where you can take your dog off leash and climb into some hills with lots of trees. We highly recommend this lovely park
This park isn't the greatest, frankly, but the view is absolutely amazing. We parked in spot 12 and awoke each morning to the site of incredible mountains and water and eagles. There is a laundry, and it is clean, but the appliances need replacement. They have some rust and are very expensive.
This is an amazing campground. All sites are on a rushing river and there are tons of trees, but space enough for big rigs (at least we see some here now). There is so much to see - hiking trails, antiques, bubbling small volcanoes. The laundry and showers and toilets are absolutely spotless. The hostess just makes this place. She smiles a lot, is not uptight in any way, and makes you feel so welcome. There is a dump station centrally, and water and electric at each site. We had planned to stay here on night and ended up staying five (with some travel in between). The whole place is beautifully kept up. Each time we have come here, there are few people staying I think it has yet to be discovered. Or perhaps the distance between here and other places, like Anchorage, is only about 170 miles. But for whatever reason, this place is way underutilized. It is a totally amazing magical place. This is very much like a state park or provincial park rather than a commercial campground. We will definitely be back.
