Jamestown Campground, Jamestown, North Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Our last night of a long road trip finds us at a very nice Good Sam RV Park on I-94 just west of Jamestown. The sites are cleverly laid out back-to-back so the two sets of hookups face each other and front sides face each other. No more eating next to your neighbor's sewer line! Mostly pull-thru with a few back-ins. Some Electric, some Electric/Water and some FHU. Some highway noise of course but not as bad as you might expect a few rows back from the highway direction. Reasonably priced and very friendly owners. There's a great walking and pet exercise trail that goes completely around the park about 3/4 mi. We'll definitely be back here! Ask for a site on the south away from the interstate. Be sure to specify if you want to be in the "pets allowed" or "no pets allowed" portion of the park. We camped at Jamestown Campground in a Motorhome.

Liberty Lake Regional Park Campground, Liberty Lake, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights at the Liberty Lake Campground at the regional park of the same name in Liberty Lake, WA, just over the border from Idaho. It's a nice place especially when mostly empty. When full it would be a little tight because the sites are long (some VERY long), but with only thin strips of grass in between. There are water and electric hookups and a dump station, fire rings and picnic tables. The biggest problem is the sites all face downhill. It took all 30 of our blocks to get the front end up (6 high on one side, 5 on the other) and it still wasn't enough. It has a much higher grade than appears in the photo.) One Class A had its front wheels well off the ground to get level. But the park has great hiking trails, a picnic area and a swim beach. Boating and fishing are allowed on the large lake. There are horse trails, ORV areas and golf courses nearby. It's a 20 min. run over to Coure d'Alene and all it has to offer. We spent the first day hiking at the park and the second day hiking the Mineral Ridge National Recreation Trail to an overlook of Lake Coeur d'Alene. The roads in and out of the campground are quite challenge due to narrow width and steep hills - you will need to use 1st gear for several hills, and watch out for oncoming traffic that needs to share the narrow roads. Reserve your camp site online. Hiking trail can be used as a very easy in-out portion all the way to challenging hills and quite strenuous portions. We camped at Liberty Lake Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Seattle / Tacoma KOA, Kent, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

This KOA has nothing going for it except the location. OK, it has a heated pool the kids love and a good size dog park, and the people were friendly and helpful. But the RVs are packed in like fresh Cooper River salmon filets packed in ice (found at Pike Place Market). You look right on your neighbor's back side and sewer and electric hookup. A great many RV units are much too big for this older CG, adding to the crowded feel. Overall the CG has a very sad or somber feel to it as it is a combination of upscale up to $350K or more travelers' units with the run-down and inexpensive units of a residential trailer park. There's absolutely nothing wrong with working class folks living inexpensively and earning their daily living, but the juxtaposition next to the affluence of luxurious Class A and huge fifth wheel units is jarring and sad. The CG is right across the street from Amazon's giant fulfillment center and there is constant truck traffic night and day. The suburban sounding 212th St. is actually a local highway with heavy and fast traffic nearly 24/7. It's only quiet between about 2-4 a.m. Some sites are located directly along the highway while others are 1-4 rows back from that. Also the KOA is only about 7 mi. from SEATAC and the roaring jets taking off and landing is also pretty much 24/7. (Write-ups on the nearby Saltwater State Park say it is directly on the takeoff and landing path.) That said, it's about a 20 min. freeway run to the downtown waterfront area. There is also a bus and train connection you can take. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want doggie day care in the area, make an advance reservation. We had good luck with Hillrose Pet Resort but they only let your dog out once unless you pay for additional "play" times. They don't run the pack together. Recommended Soos Creek and Paws N Pals were booked over the holiday weekend. Many people board their dogs in this area when headed out of town at SeaTac.

Newhalem Creek (NPS Campground), North Cascades National Park, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights last week at the Newhalem Campground at North Cascades National Park near Newhalem, WA. It was a beautiful campground, a classic National Park primitive setup but smaller and nicer than others. It had two loops with about 20 sites each. Most were back-in but a few were pull-thru (pull-along). Sites are paved and mostly level, reasonably well spaced out. The CG is near the Visitor Center and gives you direct access to all the "Newhalem Area Trails." You are a short drive from many gorgeous overlooks and trailheads along WA-20. The Newhalem Area Trails and many along WA-20 are within the Ross Lake National Recreation Area, with the surprising result that leashed dogs are allowed on trail. The trails, waterfalls and lake overlooks are a photographer's heaven! We camped at Newhalem Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Old Dorm RV Park, Jordan, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We spent one night at the Old Dorm RV Park in Jordan, MT not listed in Good Sam that I found searching local areas with Google Maps. They have 8 back-in sites and two pull-along. It's $30/night for FHU. High, but there's nothing else in the area. Unfortunately, the gravel surface is heavily rutted due to prior mud conditions (the surface wasn't set up right obviously) making parts of it impassable for RVs. But we were able to pull alongside a back-in site since no one else was there. It's a good concept but the owner must be an absentee owner or they would see the problem which I did report to them via their email address. Do NOT take MT-200 from Lewiston to Glendive! Conditions from about 45 mi. W of Jordan to Brockway are really atrocious, some with real RV punishment even at 40 mph, the rest at no more than 50 mph with many shots at ripping off your hitch on deep and unexpected depressions in the roadway. We camped at Old Dorm RV Park in a Motorhome.

Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 3 nights at this KOA near Port Angeles, WA, which is the gateway to the northern part of Olympic National Park. Part of the KOA with the smaller 30A sites was full so we reserved a larger 50A FHU pull-thru site. These are newer and terraced into a hill. They are well spaced, gravel, almost level. There is a large dog park but it is quite a walk from the sites. The staff is friendly and helpful and the laundry is clean and a good size. They give hay rides for the kids. The CG is about a 15 min. drive from Port A. and another 5 to the Olympic NP Visitor Center which is also on the road up to Hurricane Ridge. A bit further drive down the coast but still in the NP are Crescent Lake and some good hiking trails. You can also ferry over to Vancouver, BC. We camped at Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA in a Motorhome.

Fort Stevens State Park, Hammond, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very large campground with 476 sites, 174 are FHU and 302 are water/electric. The sites are decently spaced, but it is a very busy and full campground (it was full when we were there). It is small and medium child heaven with bike riders everywhere so watch it when driving! It has a well developed bike trail system. Hiking trails are not as good and in many cases you walk on the paved bike trails. There is a lot to do here including seeing large ships come down the Columbia River and hit the ocean waves, historic Ft. Stevens sites, wildlife viewing, and an actual shipwreck on the beach, plus of course the beach. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

South Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice state park right near the beach (1/4 to 1/3 mi. walk from the campground, or you can drive to an accessible beach access point). It's a very large campground with 225 sites all with electric and water. A single dump station is really not adequate for that many sites, but on a weekday we did not have to wait. The sites are very well spaced out. The best thing here is not to get a site "on the main road" since there is so much in-and-out traffic especially closer to the entrance. The inside loop sites back up towards the sidewalks to the bathrooms so go for those if you want to use the facilities. The outside loop sites are for those who use their own facilities or don't mind a short walk to the bath house. We camped at South Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are some good walking trails within the park and of course along the beach too. There is a jetty you can walk out a ways on and two lighthouses in the area - the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, and the Yaquina Head Lighthouse which is a BLM site requiring an entrance fee or a federal access pass. At the Y. Head at low tide, you can walk down to the tide pools and see some amazing sea life and seals too - whale watching in this area when in season.

Crater Lake Resort, Fort Klamath, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This place is gorgeous! All the sites are back-in and some back up to a beautiful creek. (The other sites back up to the local road which does have quite a bit of traffic.) There are two bridges and a nice walking trail, free canoes to go up or downstream a short distance, horseshoes, and more. About 9 mi. from the Crater Lake National Park south Entrance and visitor center (north is still closed, as is the rim drive but the road to the rim is open). The NPS campgrounds are closed until around June 15. It was 78 here in mid-May, but bring warm clothes and winter boots or hiking shoes for the park which still has snow, especially if you want to get beyond the parking lot! We camped at Crater Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Oasis Cafe, Motel, and RV Park, Juntura, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

"Trailer Park, Overniters Welcome." It's really a hole in the wall, and a lot of people would take one look and keep driving. But I have to say the grass pull-thru sites were level with FHU and the sketchy electric setup tested out fine with my EMS. Oh, and there is nothing else around for 100 miles either direction. $28 was high for what's there but it worked for us for a stopover between Craters of the Moon and Crater Lake. Residents were quiet in the evening and morning too. There are no amenities to speak of. We camped at Oasis Cafe, Motel, and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA , Arco, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older, established, rural KOA that is very adequate for a short visit (we stayed two nights). I want to give it 3-1/2 * for having sites that are more generously spaced and because each site has a mature shade tree, and also for its location within 20 minutes of Craters of the Moon National Monument. However it is very basic and a little worn. The small fenced dog area is OK but the dog play equipment is worn out and desperate needs paint. It’s out in the open with fields on all sides so the wind can be fierce at times. Gravel sites are mostly level. There are no concrete pads or “luxury sites” with patios etc. We camped at Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA in a Motorhome.

Red Trail Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

It just opened a few days ago but it’s still off-season and we are the only RV here. It’s a little hard to rate since it’s empty and indoor facilities are not open. This section of the park has water on. The spaces do seem close together. Most are open with no trees or shrubs but some have a scattering of trees among them. Our site (D) is quite level and the others seem level too. It’s a two block walk to town (where very little is open too) and just across I-94 from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. No highway noise but frequent freight trains make you feel at home on the Great Plains. The $25 off-season rate for FHU pull-thru with limited amenities is fair. There’s a cable connection at the box, but I think the guy said ‘no cable’ so it’s probably not on yet. No OTA channels at all. WiFi is a nice 47 Mbps but of course no one else is using it. Each site has a picnic table and portable charcoal grill. I assume they do not allow campfires but I’m not sure of that. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Rocky Mountain RV Park, Gardiner, Montana

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

Gateway to the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. A very nice spot terraced into the hillside overlooking the Yellowstone River so many of the sites have great views, but not all do. We had a back-in site near the entrance with a nice view out the back bedroom window. The spaces are pretty close but most people are gone to Yellowstone for the day and just return in the evening. Very clean indoor facilities, and very friendly and helpful staff. Small but nice fenced dog park. All site are FHU I believe. We camped at Rocky Mountain RV Park in a Motorhome.

Governors' RV Park and Campground, Casselton, North Dakota

Date of Stay: April, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Quoting an online review I read, it’s a 3 star RV park with [some] 5 star amenities. The park is just gravel slots both pull thru and back-in, quite densely packed. (Fortunately, only 3 other RVs here now.) Hookups are fine. Picnic tables, no fire rings. A very small kiddie park that’s fenced so can be used as a doggie run park when not in use. It’s adjacent to a Days Inn that has a restaurant, a pub with late night pizza, and most importantly an indoor water park with a large hot tub. I plan to check that out! We camped at Governors' RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Waterloo / Lost Island Waterpark KOA, Waterloo, Iowa

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second visit although last time it was warm and full of activity and this time it was cold and nearly empty in the back areas (the front was full of hearty winter campers). It's a large and well laid-out park with many amenities as well as propane, gas and diesel on site. Water was off but fortunately you could fill up by hose at the office building. All sites are FHU so there is no dump station (when water if off you can flush out with whatever water you pick up when entering). Our site was mostly level but we needed one block front and back on the left. There is a nice large fenced dog park. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a well-stocked camp store with good coffee, donuts and a variety of other food both hot and packaged. We camped at Waterloo / Lost Island Waterpark KOA in a Motorhome.
