Not sure how this got a "top 10" designation, but it's definitely not one now. Overgrowing landscaping looks like it hasn't been cultivated in years. Too-narrow sites with ankle-breaking river rock you need to walk on to hook up. Marginal bathroom poorly maintained (broken shower door locks, no soap in dispensers, overflowing trash cans. missing benches). At least the water was hot and the light worked. One bathroom for 100+ sites is a long walk away from a lot of them. Charmless man checked us in. No picnic tables or other site amenities except overgrown "patio" the size of a pickup truck bed. Lots of signs posted about what you can't do. WI-Fi worked, that's about all I can say good about this place. If this is "Spokane's Premiere Resort" as it says in their ad, I can't imagine what it's compared against.
Large concrete parking lot with level sites and good utilities, plenty of room between sites. Park has an enormous store/cafe/office with adjoining store-front style spaces for group meetings and its own laundromat. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Security is high because of the flea market that takes place next door on a regular basis. Open sky was good for our satellite TV. Friendly office staff. A small airport is also next door and small planes take off and land regularly.
Good location right off the freeway. Clean and neat little park for an overnight stay. Level sites were adequate as were the hookups. Clean bathrooms and shower and laundry. Front office sports a stuffed alligator caught in their pond, so watch the little doggies! Very pleasant front office staff. Downside #1: there is a paper mill over the hill and the stench never ends. Downside #2: there is a stray animal shelter next door behind the fence, so the homeless dogs in an outdoor kennel enclosure bark their heads off all day until they are put in at night. Very sad sounds.
This is a rundown trailer park with lots of permanent residents. NOT a good park for motorhomes of a certain size: narrow roads, sharp turns and uneven grass sites. Bathrooms were clean, though, as was the laundry, although they were all curiously thrown together and looked long in the tooth. Manager is friendly enough although you literally go into his house, meet his pregnant daughter, grandson, etc. to get your documentation. Tall trees make satellite reception iffy. Very strange place.
Fine park for a few nights stay in Roswell. Concrete parking lots with full hookups, pull throughs, very clean restrooms, showers and laundry. Not much tree cover but that was fine with us as we got our satellite TV working fine. Front office was a little funky smelling as the woman or someone there smokes and it's not a place you want to stay in for long. But she was helpful and nice enough. Not within walking distance of the downtown, but a short drive.
Stayed overnight here and worked fine for our needs. Near a very busy street, so traffic was noisy, but that is because we needed an easy pull-in for one night. They may have more slots in the interior of the park. Looked like a lot of snowbirds there already. Clean bathrooms and shower. Level grass sites. Didn't use pool. Satellite TV worked fine where we were, not sure of the other parts of the camp as the palm trees are very tall!
Stayed here a couple of nights. Great location with spectacular views of the city, with twinkly lights below. Really could be a nice place with a little work. Sites are flat and utilities work fine. Walking distance to downtown. Downside: there is one bathroom for women and one for men for all 70+ sites and they have no locks on the doors. The single toilet in each has a shower curtain around it instead of a door, so forget about privacy. Anyone interested in taking a shower must pass through the "toilet room" even if someone is using the toilet behind a shower curtain, to get into the shower stalls. Very awkward. Worst bathroom arrangement I have seen. Clubhouse was dated and uninviting. Very little traffic passed through while we were there. Just a few long-term RVs parked there. The lady at the front desk was unfriendly although another man who helped us to our site was great as was a handyman of some sort who worked there.
The best thing about this park is the location. A short bike ride or drive to the Croton on Hudson train station is all it takes to put you on a train that goes right to Grand Central Station in 30 minutes. It's also about 2/3 the price of the Jersey City park. It's a beautiful peninsula that juts out into the Hudson River with a nice beach, trails and partially wooded sites. We had a full hookup site that was level on grass. We were able to get satellite TV from our site with a little positioning. The park staff are not at all friendly or welcoming, and on more than one occasion the bathrooms looked as if they hadn't been cleaned in days. The showers are hideous with filthy walls and cobwebs and one of three stalls had a ripped shower curtain basically nonfunctional. One weekend there was no hot water and I had to inform the staff myself as nobody had otherwise known. Despite those problems we would stay here again just for the proximity to NYC.
The good news is the proximity of this park to downtown Cape May, which we rode to on bikes from our site. The laundry and rest rooms were clean and the showers too with lots of hot water. We managed to get satellite TV reception also from our site. The downside is the proximity of other rigs; one feels very sandwiched into the sites cheek by jowl with neighbors. The other downside is the sites are mostly dirt, meaning after it rains, and it did, our site was a mud hole. The staff does not get kudos for politeness either. The person who checked us in never cracked a smile or even a hello. The only other person we came in contact with screamed at us to slow down as we drove in at 10 mph (the speed limit is 5 mph). What a shriek! Scared the living daylights out of me. They do run a tight ship otherwise with lots of rules and regulations. A final note: Late August-September also brought more mosquitoes than I have ever experienced, aggressive and everywhere! It was impossible to even sit outside at all during morning or dusk, as well although to a lesser extent, daytime.
The woman on duty said "cash only" for our 3 night stay, which surprised me. But we ponied up the cash. Finding this place is something of a challenge since it's partially down a dirt road and no signs to lead you to it. Our site was near the regulars because we wanted a SW exposure for our satellite antenna, so we were spared the overnight area, but trees still blocked us, so no TV. Also the sites are very close together and the trailers there look as if they haven't moved in years. Site was level but very sandy and without a rug we were dragging it through the trailer. Bathrooms were clean but rustic. The bottom of the doors on the lady's room stalls were very high and consequently not very private. Showers very well used but clean.
Nice campground, but wasn't aware of a Passport America discount, as we were there on Saturday and Sundays. Too bad for us! Very quiet town and parklike environs. Wild turkeys roamed through the park! The hookups worked fine, and cable TV has the largest selection of channels we have ever seen at a campground. Wi-Fi available. Clean restrooms and showers and laundry. The town of Pipestone has little in the way of "night out" dining or entertainment, but it was a good park to chill out in.
Well situated location for exploring the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore. Campground is spacious, with level sites, some with little shelters for the picnic table. The restrooms are clean as are the showers and the laundry. It was very quiet at our location near the back of the park. The owners live at the park, and they were very friendly. Before we left a helper came by to make sure we were happy with the experience. Those little things really make a big difference. We would stay there again.
Stunning location at the foot of Devil's Tower; it doesn't get any more scenic than this. Apparently helicopter scene in Close Encounters was filmed here. Nice park, well equipped office and store, sites are roomy with full hookups. They were putting in more sites so some of the turf was dug up and still unplanted as it was early in the season. Showers and bathrooms were old and worn but functional. Strange that a lot of the shower doors were constantly locked, so you could only access two while we were there. Spacious grounds are great for wandering.
This is a very spartan, rustic park next to a bull pasture. There is no attendant to help you, just an unstaffed outdoor table so you have to serve yourself. The honor system applies and you put your money into a pipe near the entrance. There are no restrooms or showers, just a porta-potty. There is no cable or Wi-Fi. We had full hookups on our site. Very strange, never saw such a deserted spot. Our rate was half price due to our Passport America membership. Frankly, it was in no way worth twice what we paid, so I would not recommend this to anyone without a PA membership.
This is a very neat, well-run park with the best after-hours check-in system I have ever seen. The camp host was waiting for us, showed us to our site, supervised our parking and made sure we had everything we needed. The restrooms and showers are immaculate, the sites are level and have well maintained grass and mature trees. Free cable includes HBO. Easy access to downtown Portland, nearby Camping World. Will definitely stay here again when we are in Portland.
My review on this is mixed. First the good news. This park is very convenient to downtown Seattle, as it's right off a main highway and an express bus to downtown is a 10 minute walk away. The restrooms are clean as are the showers. There is a combination lock on the restrooms after hours and before the office opens, and they change the combination on the first of the month, so make sure to get the new one if you don't want to get stuck without a bathroom on the first of the month. Our host never gave us the new combo and we were without restroom access until they opened at 9. The hookups work fine. That said, this park is a sad sight, with lots of old, apparently empty trailers occupying many sites, and while we were there, one man and his senile mother were evicted by the police. This park is clearly not working too hard to keep up appearances. The sites are squeezed so close together you look into your neighbor's windows. Management has posted signs everywhere about everything telling you what you can and mostly cannot do, so my guess is that all this is necessary because of the kind of clientele they rent sites to. A very rude gal checked us in, without a smile or kindness, but another young woman who worked there was actually very pleasant so I guess they balance each other out. I will try harder to find a different place to stay next time I am in Seattle but the area has very slim pickings when it comes to convenient access to the city and this may be one's best bet.
Very nice clean park near shopping and the interstate. Roomy sites and good hookups. Tall mature trees for shade, level sites, clean restrooms and showers. Laundry was clean and reasonably priced. I would have rated it higher if one of the restroom buildings had been open, but as the main one by the office was open and virtually unused most of the time, it was adequate for the time of year before the summer rush.
This was one of my favorite places to stay. Located on the Columbia River, amid bucolic farms and horse pastures. It's a serene, well-run park with tidy gravel sites that are well spaced, good hookups, excellent cable TV selection, and good Wi-Fi reception. The owner comes around at various times of day to see how we were doing, and even helped us trim a bit off our sewer hose drain connector to make sure the threads met with their standard threads. Gorgeous green grass leads up to the riverfront, which has a small beach. We had a view site, so we watched all the ship traffic sail by outside our windows. Bathrooms were clean but one shower stall in both of the 2-shower ladies and mens rooms was being renovated. It wasn't a problem since I never saw anyone else in the bathrooms. Laundry room was functional but very old washers and dryers. $2 for a wash and dry, so the prices very reasonable. Small office with basic groceries, and a charming staff lady who was more than accommodating on our requests. We were very impressed and will return.
This is a park that is a bit worn around the edges but functioned well for us for one night. It is located on a river. For those who like that kind of thing It also has a fish pond and a small golf course. Our site was a bit muddy, as it had just rained, but the hookups worked fine. The cable TV and WI-Fi also worked. It was a pull-through site. Bathrooms were basic and relatively clean. The showers are pay showers at 25 cents for 4 minutes. The low rate was due to Passport America discount. We only stayed one night. Very nice host lady. Farther from the highway than we would have liked, but worked as a quick stopover.
The rate reflects a Passport America discount. This was a nice, older park with relatively level sites that were terraced on a hillside. All the sites had a nice planting with a tree or flowers. The bathrooms and showers were clean, the Wi-Fi worked pretty well, the cable TV had a huge selection of channels, the laundry was inexpensive, and there was a great view of Mount Shasta in the distance. A very pleasant experience.
This is a tidy park with well-spaced level sites, some under nice mature trees, each with picnic table, grassy dividers, great Wi-Fi reception, good cable TV, and a quiet park like location. The park has very clean bathrooms and showers. We were visiting a friend in Paradise, CA. and Chico, being a major city so close, was a great launching point. There were lots of grocery and other stores nearby. The hosts are pleasant and clearly care a great deal about making sure the park is at its finest.
Great location near the Larkspur Ferry, but buy a Clipper card if you plan to take it often, as it's $36 round trip for 2 to the SF Ferry building! The park is basically a big parking lot, with clean restrooms, laundry and showers. But its proximity across the bay to SF makes it a great deal at $42 a night. Looked like a lot of the folks were monthlies, but an upscale bunch generally. Right off the highway 101, so it was easy for people to find us to visit. Trader Joes is right up the street. Not much to look at, but put together well and a great staff to keep the place clean and orderly. We will return for a month next time.
Small park with mostly long-time residents. They are parking spaces, really. But it's got clean restrooms, showers, laundry, reliable Wi-Fi and cable, and great location near, but not on, the beach. Very nice manager, and quiet, friendly park. Nearby restaurants and stores.
The views from this spartan site are spectacular. You drive along Route 1 on a vertigo-inducing ride and frequent road closures, but if you get there, it's heaven on earth. There are no hookups. We parked in a fairly level gravel site. There is no potable water, no cellphone service, no cable TV, no Wi-Fi. The good news is that it lets you chill big time. The bad news is if you run out of electricity, water, or need a dump you are out of luck. The ranger who manages this site was helpful, but by accident we discovered the highway was to be closed the next day at 8-am because major bridge construction was underway. That forced us to get up at 5:45 am a day early in order to make it out of there by 7am. Not sure how often that happens but it pretty much put the kibosh on staying there any longer. We were told that to go south to get out, and resume going north again past the construction site, the trip would have taken us all the way to Salinas and back. It's remote in a very Big Big Sur way.
This is a nicely located site near downtown Grover Beach on Route 1. The beach itself is a short walk down a park road and is gorgeous, with dunes and a curved vista looking north toward the mountains that lead to Big Sur. The campground itself is tidy but tightly stacked, and it was also packed as it was spring break week. The restrooms were somewhat clean, although one always had water on the floor. Showers were behind separate doors. The laundry is a 10 minute walk from the park about 5 blocks into an adjacent mobile home park, which was not convenient. Plus on the day I was doing laundry, someone was monopolizing all of the washers, then all of the dryers, forcing everyone else to wait. There was train noise once or twice from a track that runs along Route 1, but it was infrequent enough that it didn't bother us.
This is a county campground right on the beach, but be forewarned. There is a perilously long (15 miles) winding road that must be travelled to get there, which is not for the faint of heart. We are talking sheer cliffs, hairpin turns, a recipe for disaster. It's 15 miles in and 15 miles out on the same road. Had I known this I would not have tried to get there. There are no turnarounds if you have a change of heart either. That said, we arrived to find one of the "first come first served" sites ourselves. The ranger apparently had no idea what was taken and what wasn't, just telling us that there were electrical sites (no sewer, no water) on the top and lower levels. I couldn't believe how blah-zay that ranger was. So we went up to the top level, with our trailer in tow, trusting him to have given us good information. The third level turned out to be a dead end, plus all the sites were taken. We laughed until we cried as another 20 minutes later (after we painstakingly managed to turn around our rig and trailer on a crowded vacancy-free level) we drove to a site on a lower level, which was a tight squeeze with all the other rigs parked close by and sticking out into the drive. We found a site there without a view, sandwiched between two other rigs. At 4 PM we were finally parked and went down to pay the ranger, who had left the building for the day. It was just a perfect end to the nerve-wracking ride in. There is a bathroom on the lower level, which was pretty rough and weathered - a glorified outhouse with flush toilet. There were pay showers on the beach level, which were clean. There is a store with hot food and sundries open until 5:30 or 6:00 pm. There was no Wi-Fi, no cable TV, no cellphone service. On a positive note, the beach is nice and was full of windsurfers. This site is for those who want to get away, and I mean away from everything. Just make sure to watch yourself on the way out on Jalama road.
We had a top of the line ocean view site with full hookups. Weekday was $55 and weekends $60. This was hands down the most beautiful location we have ever experienced. The 180-degree view of the Malibu coast below, perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean, was stupendous. The site was level and there was plenty of space between sites. Our electricity, water, cable TV and sewer outlets worked beautifully. The bathrooms and showers were clean, the water hot. The front office was friendly and accommodating. There were only a couple of drawbacks, which is why I will give it a 9 and not a 10. First, Wi-Fi was cutting in and out for the first week we were there, but it improved somehow for the last few days. No idea why. Secondly, ATT cellphone service is poor to nonexistent - but that is not the campground's problem, it's ATT's. We will definitely return in the off-season, as peak season rates are, well, priced like you would expect in Malibu.
We stayed a week here, and our rate reflects the weekly rate. There are a lot of good things about the park, and those include the proximity to the beach (through a gate, down a path, across a street) and the cleanliness of their bathrooms and showers. The staff is also very helpful and accommodating. The staff member escorted us to our site, which was appallingly small and tight, so I asked to see what else was available, and he took me around in his golf cart and let me pick the one I liked. The other good thing is that we brought our own bikes, so it was great just riding to the nearby train (the Coaster) that goes down to San Diego (you can bring your bike onto the train). It's about a 10-minute bike ride to the train station. We also biked along the beach (there is a great bike trail that leads to the amazing long Oceanside pier). The beach is clean and beautiful, and it was a pleasure to be so close. Restrooms and bathrooms were modest but clean. Ok, sounds perfect so far. Here is the downside part, one however is more related to your feeling about trains. The worst thing about this park is how close together you are to your neighbor. This is the closest cheek by jowl park I have ever been in. We literally look into each others' windows and the proximity to the next RV is so slim you have to duck to get under the RV behind you, in order to get into your back compartment. The ones next door have a picnic table between you and maybe a few more feet. Our sewer hookup opening had no cover, and the smell of sewage was rather pervasive. I had to put a plastic bin over the top in order to cut down on the smell from our own sewer outlet, but you do smell other peoples' sewer outlets when there isn't a good breeze. It smelled like a sewage plant on a regular basis there, which may or may not be the park's fault. The ducks in the nearby outlet from the ocean appeared healthy and the water clean, so who knows. Second, this is not a great part of town, it's the worst part. It's a bike ride away from the better side of town. Third, the passing trains are only a few yards away from the fence of the RV park, making their regular passage quite noticeable. But I like trains, and there are no loud whistles, just the sound of trains on tracks every few hours. Because the trains are so close, the trailer would rock when they go by. I personally like this, so it wasn't a problem for me, but I can see how that can be annoying to others. All in all, I am not sure I would return, because of the proximity of the other trailers. If they took out half the sites and charged twice as much I actually would consider it! But since you feel like a sardine, it's really a disappointment, given that beautiful and convenient location.
This is the best park we have ever seen. On arrival, a workcamper led us to our pull-through site and answered all our questions, then we went back to the office to register and pay. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, with lots of suggestions on what to see, where to park, etc. in Austin. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly, as did the cable TV channels, with reception getting better after dark. We had our rig serviced at the local Buda Camper Clinic II, only 7 miles away, but ended up staying longer here because we liked it so much. The front office even accepted some packages for us from UPS. There is a fitness room off the main office where my husband enjoyed their workout equipment and weights. There are probably a dozen or so full private baths, including showers in each one, which means no waiting even in the morning "rush hour" and the bathrooms were always clean. The sites are nicely separated with mature trees and hedges, so you aren't looking into your neighbor's windows. The only downside is beyond the campgrounds' control - the noise from the I-35 freeway - but by the end of our stay, we got used to it. I rate this an A+ resort.
This is a brand new park, rebuilt over the grounds of a motel/resort. Everything is spotless and working well, with a couple of exceptions. First, it's a great location on the north side of the island right where the town begins, and located on the oceanfront. You can walk to stores and restaurants, but still feel secluded on the huge, expansive beach. The sites were level, the hookups new. The bathrooms were clean with nice multiple private shower stalls, so they can be used by several people at a time. The laundry area is clean and tidy. The staff is friendly. Downsides: there is no consistent place to put trash. There was a dumpster there for the first day we were there, but then it was taken away, and we had to put our trash in random cans. The price fluctuated. As it was Mardi Gras season (we personally couldn't care less about that, but had to pay the Mardi Gras price) the fee was $50 per night. I was told by the day manager that it would change to $37 a night on Sunday and Monday. However, when I came in to pay Sunday morning, the new clerk told me that the rate was $40 a night for the weekend, and that the other person was mistaken to say it was $37. On top of that, they would not take any of my membership cards, including Good Sam, "because it was Mardi Gras season." So we were charged $40 a night. It would be nice if people could get their rates straight. Also they were building a swimming pool, and the grounds had constant traffic and noise from trucks and workmen on the way to the bathrooms. It will be a nice place to stay when they finish the pool, figure out what their rates are, and solve the garbage problem. Warning: Don't try to stay in Galveston during Mardi Gras season like we did. All the RV parks fill up. I checked around to find different places and none had vacancies.
This was a very nice campground, and without a doubt the best we have stayed in until then. It's apparently on reclaimed ground since Katrina, and they have done a nice job landscaping each site with a divider of palms and foliage and rocks, with nice gravel level sites. The high rate we paid was due to Mardi Gras season, so they feel justified in charging. A shuttle bus leaves for the French Quarter three times a day for $5 per person per day. A nice marina is off one side, giving the place a water feature. Downsides: the cable TV was basically worthless. Most of the channels had heavy snow, and the channels advertised as HBO were not HBO but some were the HBO minor channels, like HBO2 and HBO familly, but not the real HBO. I called to request help after hours for a couple of reasons and each time someone answered and actually helped. So that was great! Including getting the real HBO to appear one night. I tried again a few nights later and it was not HBO again, it had been switched. I know this because I was able to get online with my iphone and check the HBO schedule. Also, for all their bathroom gorgeousness, there are only 2 bath houses for the entire park. The one in the back of the campground, which service at least three dozen campers, have only a one stall bathroom for men and one stall for women, each with a toilet and shower in one room. That means anyone taking a shower monopolizes the room, making it impossible for anyone else to use a toilet unless they walk clear back to the main lodge building. The campground needs more showers/toilets built, or they should have separated them when the building was constructed. The Wi-FI signal is very unreliable. We tried it during different times of the day and it cut in and out, but the last day we were there it didn't even show up on our network connection. But despite these issues, we still enjoyed our stay there and hope that they can work out these kinks.
We chose this park because previous reviews below said it was good, and because all the other parks in the Lake Charles area were terrifying. However, that was a mistake. Positives: a nice girl in the office, who seemed to welcome us despite the fact that she had only a couple of spots available, and the cable signal with hookup was strong with nice reception; there is also a nice pond behind the office. Negatives: we were sent to a site with only half the length needed for our rig, forcing us to either block traffic on the road, or unhitch our truck, even though we planned to only stay the night. Plus the grassy bit on one side was littered with dog waste and I had to find wood and pieces of concrete to cover up the mess so we wouldn't step in it in the dark. The restrooms and showers were HIDEOUS: the worst I have ever seen. They were filthy, with used toilet paper on the floors, filthy and falling apart, with full garbage cans, odd wires strung across the walls to supply power to a heater and a light over the sink, but no light switch on the wall and no way to turn it on; showers and tubs stained with gigantic yellow patches that looks like human waste; knobs to turn on the shower were, unbelievably, missing (so I assume you were supposed to bring your own wrench to the shower to turn on the water). The walls of the door frame to the bathrooms were so bowed and warped, that they let in light between the door and the frame: that was all the light you could get. The laundry area had a strong smell of gas, indicating a gas leak, making me think an explosion would be imminent should someone light up outside the laundry. The whole place just smells of raw sewage. I have no idea if the bathrooms are serviced more than once a month, or if anyone maintains this property, but the reviews that follow are totally inaccurate today.
This is the best campground we have ever seen. Gorgeous, spacious sites, quite a distance from neighboring rigs, with clean restrooms and showers, friendly staff, easy access to downtown Savannah, wildlife, nature trails, a great paved bike route, and more... We stayed 5 days and hated to leave. No Wi-Fi in campsites, but it's available at the park office, a short bike ride from the campsite. Idyllic. Everything I imagined in an RV campsite.
This is a gorgeous location literally on the beach. Get an oceanfront site if you can. There is a nice dock that extends into the ocean, with a beautiful view, as well as places to set up chairs on the beach. The sites are a little too close together, but the clean restrooms and showers and laundry offset that. Friendly staff, tall palm trees dot the parking lot. We should have stayed longer than one night.
The camp was impressive -- well kept up, super clean bathrooms and showers, recycling offered for aluminum to benefit an animal shelter, a friendly and knowledgeable host, wifi worked beautifully, general store with just about anything you might need in a pinch (other than food) even refills for propane. The only downside is the closeness of the sites - you are right next to your neighbor and practically look in their windows. Upside: ducks wander the grounds freely.
Basically a big parking lot with hookups near the casino. Lot was pretty full but quiet. Laundry worked well. Hookups were fine. Near the highway 84 so the casino was easy to see but locating this RV park was a little harder. Complimentary breakfast was advertised as part of the deal but to get it you had to take a shuttle bus and go to the front desk of the casino to get a coupon. No place to park your trailer at the casino so we skipped it.
Easy in and out, friendly lady greets you as you roll in. Quiet park with trees, however there were a couple of things to be aware of. First there is an odor of a feedlot a mile down the road which really stinks up the air. Smelled like manure all the time while we were here. Also the showers were locked when we went to use them around 8:30 pm and our handout on entry did not post the hours or any info on how to get into them, so we were disappointed there and never got one. The dump station is on the property but not a hookup.
