Crossroads RV Park (formerly Blackstone RV Park), Mohave Valley, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of the quietest commercial RV parks we have experienced. Little traffic runs along Boundary Cone Road at night, and there's no noise from the Highway 95 north-south route several miles away. Its location is surrounded by sparsely occupied open desert. Quail run through the park, and we often heard coyotes serenading at night. The sites are park-beside with a narrow concrete patio between the rig and the tow vehicle, and reasonably generous in size. We did find that to reach the utilities at the back of our site that our rear-door Airstream had to be parked with the steps beyond the rear end of the concrete patio. The park's water was quite palatable - not always the case with desert locations. It's a bit of a drive to town for food and gas, but we liked the trade-off in peace and quiet. We camped at Crossroads RV Park (formerly Blackstone RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The north wind is frequently very strong in the Mohave Valley, and the park's dense perimeter hedges don't run along their north boundary; so if wind bothers you, ask for a spot away from that side. There is some decent rockhounding in the Black Mountains to the east, including fire agate at a commercial you-dig operation east of Oatman.

Base Camp RV Park (formerly Hunter RV Park), Lakeview, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Very convenient to town, and reasonably quiet though located close to Hwy 395; which makes it a good overnight stop. Friendly service. Park is located on the edge of a huge pasture on one side, hills across the highway on the other. Very rural feel, nothin' fancy, not a resort, but well-run. We camped at Base Camp RV Park (formerly Hunter RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Hunter Hot Springs is located right next door. Built in 1925, it is run-down but recently taken over by new owners who are working to fix it up. Friendly and eccentric place to take a soak. Good hardware store, NAPA auto parts, and Safeway grocery in Lakeview, two miles away. From camp, look across the pasture to the northwest and you will see the only active geyser in the Pacific Northwest spouting off every few minutes.

Columbia Sun RV Resort, Kennewick, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This was our third short (2-day) stay at this park over the last several years and each time it has been consistently excellent. Clean, friendly, efficient, and just generally squared away. It is convenient to the Interstate and easy to access after a long, tiring drive, but traffic noise is minimal. Spaces are level, large, and easy to get into. Being located on the eastern Washington desert, not surprisingly it is rather wide-open and can get windy. Watch those lawn chairs! We camped at Columbia Sun RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Consider your exit carefully if you are towing and want to refuel at the nearest gas station, located at the traffic circle on Badger road. Can be a bit tight.

Maple Pool Campground & RV Park, Courtenay, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This place has a very sketchy feel, due to many campers who appear to otherwise be homeless. Locals in nearby Courtenay indicated it has been the subject of ongoing political struggles with the owners and homeless advocates over its location on a flood plain, crime, and sanitation; though cleanup is supposed to be ongoing. Would be very cautious about camping here, though its location is quite convenient to Courtenay. We camped at Maple Pool Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

MacMillen RV Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of those places where the beauty lies in the service, price, and location, rather than in how it looks, which is fairly basic. The casual atmosphere is very friendly. When we called ahead we were told to just come on down and find a spot we liked, set up, and someone will come by after a while. We did, and he did. We are in a 30-amp rig and the site only had 50-amp service, but the host gladly loaned us an adapter. Our site was level, showers and bathrooms clean. The location is convenient to town, but quiet, bordering on pastureland. As you drive south of town, look for the giant tin chicken that marks the entrance to camp. On the downside, the grass around camp seriously needed mowing to keep down the sandspurs, which were a nuisance; and some of the sewage inlets had only flat rocks balanced on them instead of actual caps. Note that payment here is cash or check only. Overall, though, we would stay here again. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Fort Davis national historic park, Davis Mountains State Park, and McDonald Observatory are all convenient to this campground (in Texas driving terms, of course.) Sol Ross University's Big Bend Museum in Alpine, about 30 minutes away, is worth the drive to see how a very small museum can do a good job of storytelling in a limited space. For a picnic and a swim in a big clear spring go to Balmorhea State Park, about 45 minutes away down Route 17; and enjoy some spectacular scenery on the way.

J & H RV Park (55 + Park), Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This is a squared-away place to camp. Sensible rules, scrupulously clean, and a pleasant environment. Price is a little steep, but value is decent in terms of overall environment. Our site was dead-level. Nice trees in the park. Note that the entrance has a somewhat short deceleration area to get off the highway, especially if other rigs are waiting in line at the office, so mind your speed on approach. We camped at J & H RV Park (55 + Park) in a Travel Trailer.
