Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park, Coulee City, Washington

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

We stayed in the upper section, lower loop #76. The arrangement of the sites gives you lots of space between your neighbors. Get this spot or another adjacent to one reserved for disabled visitors; it's likely to remain unoccupied. Our site was pretty level; we didn't need to do anything special in that regard. There isn't any shade to speak of in the upper loops. Stay in three main area if that's important to you. We were there the weekend after Memorial Day, Thurs-Sunday nights, so it wasn't as hectic as it could be. Our loop was nearly full on Saturday night, but it didn't feel crowded at all. The bathrooms were clean, as was the shower, and the shower worked fine with plenty of hot water. We were most impressed with the camp host volunteers. They arrived at a newly vacated spot within minutes of the people leaving. They scrubbed the picnic table and benches and made sure the site was tidy and utilities were operational. There were regular drive - throughs by park rangers. We had no issues with the site or services. Downsides: 1. No wi-fi and marginal cell service. We have an external booster antenna which kept us at 3G, sometimes 4G. As mentioned by another reviewer, the site rate is a little high for not having wi-fi. 2. Mosquitos were present in abundance. I don't know if that's usual or not. This was our first time there. We camped at Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Fair Park RV - Alameda County Fairgrounds, Pleasanton, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Very small spaces and narrow lanes. It was extremely difficult to park the 5th wheel, and then there was hardly any space for the truck. We were so close, we couldn't open the awning all the way. Sites were gravel and poorly marked with chalk lines. If you choose 50 amp, you may be on the grassy pad in the first row that looks nicer. Utility poles are not well put together and poorly maintained. There are not a lot of options in the North Bay Area. We were here a week while visiting relatives. We camped at The Fair Park RV - Alameda County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Belle Campground (NPS Campground), Twentynine Palms, California

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

As others have mentioned, Belle is a small campground. Our 35' fifth wheel fit well into space #4. #3 is also good for a larger rig. There are maybe 6 sites for larger rigs. It's first-come, first-served, no reservations there, so you might want to have a back-up plan if you're there on a weekend.

We didn't use the vault toilet that is in the campground, but in the 5 days we were there, we saw the Park service people attend to it twice. There is a dumpster and recycling bins in the campground.

We entered from the north, and it's a quick 10-15 minute drive to Belle.

There was a surprising amount of traffic driving through the campground, especially on Saturday night, very late/early morning. Not enough experience there to know if that's normal.

We really loved this place and the Park, and would like to come here again. There is a lot to see within the Park, a real natural treasure. We camped at Belle Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Park does an awesome job of marking points of interest along the roads through the park. I highly recommend making the drive (no RVs) to the top of Key's Viewpoint, especially if it's sunny and warm! To actually see the San Andreas Fault from altitude!

29 Palms at the north end of the park has adequate grocery, fuel, restaurant outlets.

Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Besides the natural beauty of the place, we were especially impressed with the staff and volunteers. The approach to the park is clearly marked and ready to find and get into. Upon driving up to the Park office to check in, the staff comes out to your rig to get you checked in and oriented. It was quick and effortless. When a nearby camper left, the volunteers were there within minutes to check the site and rake the gravel. There are individual trash bins at each site and recycle bins are nearby and at many locations.

The restrooms were very clean and warm! They are conveniently located; There were two within yards from our spot. It was down to the 20's F overnight. The air-dry blowers seemed to take air directly from outside without warming, so that was chilly. The showers were roomy enough, warm and good water pressure, but felt dark and not up to the standards of the rest of the park as we experienced it. That's the -1 star on cleanliness.

As stated in another review, some of the sites are tight for larger rigs, and can be unlevel. We drove through the campground a week or so earlier when we were nearby and we were able to scout out the site we wanted (64) We did have to prop up one side of the 5th wheel for side-to-side level. We were dry camping.

The site is gravel with a bbq, picnic table and fire pit. There are lots of trails from novice to expert ability. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The ghost town nearby was disappointing. To me, it felt like a western-style strip mall, designed to separate you from your money. It may be of value to families with yung'uns if you have the $ to spend on rides and attractions (train ride, zip line, mine tour, "mystery shack", which were all about $7 each). There was a cute gun-fight staged in the center of town. There was no entry fee and parking was free, so it was a nice stroll on a beautiful day. Otherwise, meh.

Wenatchee Confluence State Park, Wenatchee, Washington

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in the summer to practice in our new rig. We moved the fifth wheel from our high altitude home, worried about cold temps and snowfall arriving before we left for the winter.

Only one of the two loops is open at this time of year. There were only about 5 parties there. Gorgeous fall colors, deer and raccoon came to visit.

With the Senior Pass for Washington State residents ($75 for October 1 to May 1) electric sites are $10/night. Dry camping is free!

Showers are adequate and clean. No WiFi here. The water was shut off for the winter for the last couple of days we were there.

Close to all services in Wenatchee. Highly recommend! We camped at Wenatchee Confluence State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lakeland RV Park, Bayview, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a simple RV park property - nothing fancy, but just what you need in Bayview. Locally owned and operated for many many years. There are maybe 25-30 spots here, all with full hook-ups, it seems. There is a central covered patio area with microwave, fridge, etc. that can be used for small group gatherings. I went into the ladies' restroom shower but didn't use it. It seemed to be well-kept, but it is old.

We were in the center section of pull-through spots, #20. Just perfect for our needs.

It's about a mile walk to downtown Bayview. They open in March or April, weather depending, and close for the season in mid-October. We were there in mid-September. There were maybe 6 other RVers there.

We were treated to some wildlife-viewing there - Deer, wild turkeys, squirrels - and heard an owl or two. We camped at Lakeland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Columbia Sun RV Resort, Kennewick, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

All the good things that are said in other reviews, ditto. I marked Value at only 3 stars because we didn't take advantage of so many of the amenities - pool, laundry, showers, etc. We did go to the $1 pancake breakfast - very nice in the event room. Good way to meet others, can't beat that value! Impressed with property up-keep. We noticed that one of the slats in the patio bench was loose, flagged down one of the guys and showed him. Within an hour, he came back with tools and fixed it. I was also very impressed by the fact that they have devices at the pool to assist disabled people - sort of a seat on a crane that rotates and lowers. Never saw that before. Very good looking off-leash dog area.

We had our choice of spots and chose 007 - paved back-in near the pool. We weren't oriented to optimize awning shade with our back end pointing to the office. Next time we'll choose one facing the opposite direction. We camped at Columbia Sun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Budd's Broiler in Richland - moderately high-end but fantastic steakhouse. Casual attire just fine. What a splurge! We were there early enough, I chose the Prix Fixe (sp?) menu - full dinner with appetizer, entree and side, and dessert for $26.

Wenatchee Confluence State Park, Wenatchee, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park with lots of room in camping spaces and in general. We experienced excellent customer service when the spot we were supposed to move to after the first night was still occupied after check-out time. We had contact with the State Park employee at registration, the Park Ranger and the Park Volunteer Host, and everyone did a great job helping us. We observed grounds workers working hard to keep the park looking great. We camped at Wenatchee Confluence State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
