Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park, Ashland, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a quick, inexpensive place to stop in the general area that was not right on I-5. We're self-contained in our 25 foot MH and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on a weeknight in early October. Emigrant Lake Rec Area actually has 2 CGs. Oak Slope includes primitive sites while The Point includes full hookups. We stayed at Oak Slope. The campsites are nicely arrayed on 3 loops and tiered so that most have nice views and privacy. The sites are generously sized although the paved parking pads tend to be long and narrow so good for tents and smaller RVs. There are trees throughout providing shade and privacy. The rest rooms are clean with flush toilets and hot showers. There're good ATT and Verizon cell signals. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pacific Rim National Park, Green Point Campground, Tofino, British Columbia

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

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient to explore Pacific Rim National Park. We're self-contained in our 8 meter (25 foot) MH and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We arrived late on a Monday evening in late September and the CG was full. We returned the next day and got a site for 2 nights. This is a very nice NP CG. The sites are arrayed on one large loop. All the sites are relatively near the trails to the beach. Sites ~37-47 are closest to Hwy 4 with some road noise. Sites ~67-94 are closest to the beach, some with water views through the trees. The sites are generously sized, flat, gravel, clean and tucked into the trees for shade and privacy. There are relatively new, modern washrooms, 2 with push button showers with ample hot water and pressure. There's a dump station near the entrance and potable water at different locations in the CG. There's a usable ATT/Rogers and Verizon/Telus cell signal, strongest near Hwy 4. We camped at Pacific Rim National Park, Green Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Cluxewe Resort, Port McNeill, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The locals suggested Cluxewe Waterfront Bistro at Cluxewe Resort Campground and we opted to stay at the campground. We're self-contained in our 8 meter (25 foot) MH and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on a Friday night in late September. We arrived early afternoon and were able to get a site and restaurant reservation. This is a large (~100 sites), clean, very nice CG right on the water. There a wide variety of sites, serviced, partially serviced and fully serviced. Some of the sites are short and wide, others are long and narrow, some are tucked into the trees while others are in the open. There are a few 'clumps' of sites where 3-8 sites are close together, otherwise there're in the trees for shade and privacy. There are many sites right on the water, most are within sight of the water, with great views. Most sites are a mix of grass, gravel, dirt, mostly level, some might require some leveling. The coin-op ($1 for 6 minutes) showers were clean with ample hot water and water pressure. There's good (roaming) ATT and Verizon cell coverage. We camped at Cluxewe Resort in a Motorhome.

Klahanie Campground, Squamish, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a full service CG in the general to refresh after a week of boondocking. We're self-contained in our 8 meter (25 foot) MH and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on a weekend in late September. We arrived late on a Saturday and took one of the 2 remaining non-premium (view), water and electric RV sites, site 101. This is a funky campground and we liked it. The dirt sites are essentially carved tightly into a bluff overlooking the bay. Although relatively close together, most (not all) are generously-sized, at different levels and surrounded by trees and bushes providing quite a bit of privacy and shade. Some sites were level and some needed leveling. After 2 days of solid rain, the sites were just a bit muddy. Agree with other reviewers that small RVs are ok, anything larger needs maneuvering into the site. Premium sites had nice views of the bay. The 15 amp service at our site worked. The water pressure at the site was low, so we filled our tank and used our water pump. There's a dump station with rinse water. The coin-op showers were dated yet clean, with ample pressure and hot water - $3.50 CDN for 6 minutes. There's good ATT/Rogers and Verizon cell service. There's a laundry on site which we did not use, Wifi which we didn't use and a cafe which we did not visit. We camped at Klahanie Campground in a Motorhome.

We're self-contained in our 8 m (25 foot) RV and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on weeknights in early September. The CG was nearly full each night.

Seward Waterfront Park, Seward, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient for exploring Seward. We're self-contained in our 25 foot MH and don't use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in mid-August. We arrived late in the afternoon and were able to find a site on the beach. The City of Seward operates a series of CGs along the east edge of town, on Resurrection Bay. They are all large, dirt parking lots with chalk lines delineating the spaces. Some have electric for $40/night. Dry sites are $20/night. Those furthest north along the beach are nearest the small boat harbor and cruise ships. Those furthest south on the beach are along a multi-use path which renders this area rather social - locals and RVers are walking past the line of RVs throughout the day/evening. The areas are relatively quiet at night. The views are beautiful. The sites are dirt and level. Most are in the open sun, while a few sites away from the beach can get partial shade. There are restrooms and pay showers which we didn't use. There are dumpsters in the camping areas. There's a dump station with potable water on Ballaine Blvd with a $5 fee. There's good Verizon and ATT cell service. Not everyone will like the parking lot feel. We enjoyed the views and social nature of the space that was convenient to visit Seward. We camped at Seward Waterfront Park in a Motorhome.

Fishing Hole Campground, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient to activities in Homer and on the Homer Spit. We're self-contained in our 25 foot RV and don't use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in early August. The City of Homer operates the CG in 4 sections - 1 in Homer (Hornaday) and 3 on the Spit. One section on the Spit is for tents only (Tents). The RV sites are on the Inlet side, near end of the Spit (Mariner) or on the harbor side, middle of the Spit (Fishing Hole). The sites are level gravel in full sun. They are either sites that line up the RVs (as in a gravel parking lot) or separate them with driftwood logs into distinct spaces. All sites are primitive (no hookups). There's potable water near the restrooms. There's a dump station in the Fishing Hole section for a $15 fee above the $20 camping fee. There's good ATT and usable Verizon cell service. Some might find the spaces unpleasant. We stayed in the Fishing Hole section and found the sites pleasant with other campers respectful of space, cooperating, sharing tables, fire pits, etc. and enjoying the informality of the sites and the views. Fishing Hole is walking distance from many of the services and shops on the Spit and biking distance from others on the Spit and in town. There are grocery stores in Homer. We camped at Fishing Hole Campground in a Motorhome.
