Colossal Cave Mountain Park, Vail, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $7.00
Overall Rating:

This is a tricky park if you are over 20' long. We arrived in a 37' 5th wheel after other parks in the area were full or washed out by rains. The man on the phone said to park at the bottom of the the hill and unhook and walk/or drive to the office at the top. It is a good hike, pull over by the entrance with the flags and walk up, or drive all the way to the end of the road by the one lane entrance to the right where the the hill is to the Posta Quemada ranch picnic and overflow parking, do not go into where the campground signs are unless you are under 20' (we barely made it in and out new girl sent us there!!!! Yikes!!!). After you are at the Posta Quemada parking lot, unhitch and drive back up to the office to pay. This is the only spot for larger rigs. The road is pretty bad condition, and we are used to bad Baja roads, slalom around the potholes :). Large flat parking lot for picnics and some campers before the dude ranch. Look for the cowboy statue and you know that is where you can park. There is a water spigot and bathrooms. Do not go up the hill in anything larger than 24' or you will have trouble getting out as the the one way road up is fine, the road down has a severe left turn that most rigs can't make. The park "Campground" is dry camping suited to very small trailers and vans it is quite wild and lovely but the overflow parking area is fine for big rigs if you don't mind slowly driving and avoiding potholes:) For $7 a night you don't get much but it is quiet and nice hikes on the Arizona trail. You can rent horses as well for riding at Posta Quemada as well. We'd come back again :) We camped at Colossal Cave Mountain Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cibola National Wildlife Refuge, Ehrenberg, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This is BLM land across from the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge. Turn left and go over a cattle guard and up a small hill. There were 4 others camped there when we arrived. There are maybe 6-8 spots before a bit of a dip we didn't want to chance with our 37' 5th wheel but lots of room to turn around and several different choices with fire rings. Beautiful view of the mountains, stark desert beauty and the sounds of birds across the way. Very very quiet! Loved it! We took the road South from the #78 to Neighbors road. It gets a bit bumpy/pot holes for half a mile just before the AZ border then is fine. Narrow bridge to cross but no problem. 18 wheelers loaded with cotton bales and hay bales use it, continue right to the Cibola Wildlife Refuge office and turn left over the cattle guard in front. We only stayed the night to check it out but will be back when we head North and will stay to wander around the refuge! We camped at Cibola National Wildlife Refuge in a Fifth Wheel.

Salton Sea SRA / Mecca Beach, Mecca, California

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

Only about 8 sites with full hookups, 4 face the beach (139-142) They are an odd size 20'x40' we managed to back out 37' 5th wheel in sideways. Fabulous view of the Salton Sea sunsets and sunrises! Great campground hosts. Sea is interesting. Doesn't smell good close up but didn't notice any smell at the site. Train and highway close by but no whistles here. Campground to the North is quite noisy I'm told. Stark beauty here. Enjoyed it. We camped at Salton Sea SRA / Mecca Beach in a Fifth Wheel.

Beaver Dam Campground / Caney Lakes Recreation Area, Minden, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful forest campground-huge paved sites. Wide with tables, fire rings. Access to the lake is limited due to shoreline brush but what an amazing value for such a beautiful spot. Verizon signal was quite weak, no streaming here. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground / Caney Lakes Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Minden is about 10 miles away. Both gps's took us in the back way. Off the 20-take the 371 North through Minden, then the 79 to the 159. Follow the park signs, turn left on Caney Lake Road and you will arrive at the campground. Minden has stores for shopping but is a dry county. You have to go across the parish libe to the next town for alcohol sales.

Oak Mountain State Park, Pelham, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park.Rained the two days we were here but we will come back. Some sites are clustered together in odd ways in loop A not allowing for much privacy unless you are with a group. Would avoid them. 11-12-13 are all very close. 12 and 13 were plently large for our 37' 5th wheel but in the future would take spots 24 or 25 if you want full hook ups with more privacy. Loop B is more open with pull throughs but the sites seemed far more crowded. Good Verizon signal here as well. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fabulous park South of the trans Canada 1. Beautiful state beach and great birding, canoeing or kayaking. Large sights, plenty of shade. Spent a week here waiting for a new hydraulic pump, staff were great at helping us get a mobile repair in (biggest in Manitoba, also owns the Resort-4 Seasons) courteous helpful staff, great cafe at the front and store. Really wonderful people! Campground is on your left coming in, GPS will take you to the Golf Course further down so stop! We camped at Oak Island Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Capilano River RV Park, West Vancouver, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We loved this park, yes it is tight and crowded, we're 37' long, but look where you are! Walking distance to so much. The Park Royal Mall and the fabulous Black Forest Deli. You can see the Lions Gate Bridge and walk over it if you'd like! This is West Vancouver, you are close to everything. Laundry was impeccable and the folks at the front desk were lovely, especially after I told them how much we enjoyed it, they were beaming! Beautiful Capilano River behind, go for a walk and watch the Great Blue Herons fishing! We camped at Capilano River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

They put us in spot 111. Must be for overnighters. Half the park was empty and they squeeze us into the smallest spot possible? Really! Not impressed. Goats at the petting zoo were the only perk here. We won't be back at $78 a night. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is our go to park in the San Diego area, when they can fit us in. Weekends are always a problem but during the week it is quiet and lovely. Weekends can be quite loud with lots of children and bicycles. You need to book way ahead if you know you are going to be there over a weekend. Beautiful sites on the lake as well as treed areas. Our 37' size limits us in some places but we have spent time in all the loops. The center loop backing up on the recycled water stream on the West side is our favorite as well as backing right up to the lake in the Lakeshore loop. The staff seems to to constantly go out of their way to help, they have been marvelous finding us spots when there didn't seem to be any. Call if there is nothing available on line. They are sweethearts! You can also have mail and small packages sent to the office. Power and water are fine as well. Great birding and bird photography around the lakes if you are an enthusiast, especially Fall winter, but this Spring we saw ducklings:) awesome:) Great trails to walk on as well. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

The Californian RV Resort, Acton, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Concrete terraced parking lot. Over nighters and short term are sandwiched in, not enough room for our 37' trailer and dually, we are sticking out into the road. Monthly spots look like they have more room, difficult to get around your trailer once your slides are out. Worst problem is spiking 133 volt electricity-I've lost this review once already when the power went out. Our coach shuts down to protect itself. We had no power from 11pm to 7:30 this morning, this is expensive dry camping. Office said it was normal..NOT...my brother and father are electricians. The office said they need to keep it high for when all the AC's kick in...it's not AC weather yet. Some poor fools are damaging their appliances, stove and microwaves, as well as water heaters if their coach does not have high voltage protection, many do not. Our DRV has this protection. They didn't seem to care at the office, said it was within normal limits...sigh... We camped at The Californian RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Wifi not available at the sites and I was told by another camper it was not working. Laundry room has been flooded out so no laundry. Good power and water. Sites can be tight, watch the wires coming in, if you are tall do not go around the circle, we popped our roof vent cap off on the low hung wires, luckily no damage. Stay to the right. Nice walk down to the river, lot's of storm damage here in the last few years and it has been slow coming back but a beautiful area. Great birding here in the RV park as well as walking out to the rivers mouth. We camped at Villa Maria Isabel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ojo de Liebre Campground, Guerrero Negro, Baja California Sur

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

Where can you camp at night and hear the whales spouting all night? Here! This is an amazing campground open during the whale viewing season from Nov. until mid April. This is dry camping. There are no facilities so stock up on water and provisions in Guerrero Negro before coming. It has a wonderful onsite restaurant, very reasonable and fresh as well as very clean showers and toilets near the base area where the restaurant and whale watching tours leave from. There are palapas you can rent or if you continue further on down the road to the West where there are multiple pull through and back in sites. The furthest West sites sit overlooking the bay. There are outhouses spaced between the sites as well. It is quiet, dark and simply an amazing experience. Whale tours go out on small boats at various times of the day. A worthwhile venture to get close to these amazing Gray whales. The drive in is partly paved and then a very well graded dirt road that is well signed. You drive through an area of salt flats to get there. Big rig accessible. We camped at Ojo de Liebre Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
