Angels Camp RV & Camping Resort, Angels Camp, California

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Somewhat disappointing. The staff was friendly, but the park needs considerable work. Granted I was there after a large storm hit CA, but even given that, the park is rundown. (It is really a 3.5 star park, not 4. But given that much of the damage to the park was from a recent storm, it did not seem fair to mark them as a 3 even though that is its current condition.) It is NOT a 9.5 or even a 9 as per the Good Sam rating, in my opinion. It is more like an 8 when compared to other parks. Issues this "resort" needs to improve on. #1- They need to hire a Gardner. The grounds are in desperate need of care! ALL of the trees and bushes needed to be trimmed. BE CAREFUL where you drive with your RV or you will hit tree branches. #2- The roads and spaces are horribly damaged from rain. Yet again another park with "dirt and gravel" spaces instead of blacktop or cement. The spaces are very uneven and need fresh gravel! #3- Not BIG RIG friendly. The spaces are extremely narrow. If you have a new RV with huge slide-outs, you will not fit in most spaces. And those that you do, you will NOT be able to have a table alongside your rig. #4- Not dog friendly. No spaces for your canine friend to do his business and no pet bags, like almost every other park, to pickup his business with. #5- No enforcement of trash around full-time RV folks. They have a large number of permanent RV members. Many of those RVs have accumulated considerable "trash" around their RVs which makes the park look "getto" in places. Lastly, there are some positive factors. Friendly staff. Quiet area. They have a horseshoe pit and volleyball net. Also nice small areas for those with tents. (The tent areas seemed to be better kept then the RV spaces... or it could be those areas are just not used much, not sure). Two locations for Sewer connections to accommodate small and larger rigs. In conclusion, it is nice private park for what it is. It is better than many, but also worse then several... therefore I rate it just above average. CAUTION... NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY. Many spaces too narrow for larger newer RVs. Be sure to relate size of your RV width. The spaces are long enough, but far too narrow!!! We camped at Angels Camp RV & Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sac West RV Park and Campground, West Sacramento, California

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

Not the worst, but FAR from the best! The good sam rating is REALLY off... in my opinion anyway. It is NOT a 9 or 9.5 park... not by a longshot! This park is extremely run down and beat up. The "premium" sites are dirt sites. At one time these sites had gravel in them... but that was probably 5 or more years ago! The sites are full of potholes, very uneven, and mostly dirt mixed with gravel. Also do not be fooled by the photos which imply there is a water or river nearby. There is a trash filled, green slim, smelly, stagnant water near the park. The photos on their website must have been taken years ago. This feels like an inner-city park. Many of the RVs are old and have not moved in many years. Most importantly... the freeway is directly next to this park and it is VERY, VERY loud!! You have to shout to be heard when talking with people outside!! It is so loud it is difficult to sleep at night. (Perhaps city folk with not have a problem with this.) It also is extremely overpriced for what it is. I am shocked at how full it is given the quality and price. I hated staying at this park! However, there are some redeeming features... First, the staff was very friendly every time I spoke with them. They were polite, helpful, and seemed happy to work there. Secondly, there is a play area for children and perhaps families would find the park better than I as a business person. Third, there is an on-site food cart which will deliver. (I did not use it, so unable to rate quality.) Lastly, it is located near a large shopping area. So just about anything you need is within a few miles. (Again this was also a downside due to all the noise and traffic congestion.) I suggest you look at the google sat image of this park so you know what you are getting into. If noise, crowded spaces, rundown appearance, along with heavy traffic does not bother you, then you will probably be okay. We camped at Sac West RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Crooked River Ranch RV Park, Crooked River Ranch, Oregon

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This park has potential. Great views and is quiet. However the park roads are gravel and rather dusty; this is Central Oregon. NOT all spaces are equal in size or quality! Some spots have grass and cement blocks for the picnic table, while others have no grass or just artificial grass under the table. Also due to fire hazard you are not allowed to have fires. Some spots have a nice view of the terrain while others do not. Be very careful with kids and pets as there is a huge canyon not far from the park without any fence or warning signs (However you do have to stray away from the road and campsite for several hundred yards.) There is NO security at night or personnel on call. And the response time for EMS or Deputies would be quiet lengthy given the location; so keep this in mind if it is a concern for you. The staff was friendly; but with one office person and only one grounds person, seemed understaffed. No cable tv despite what the website states! They did offer in the past, but not currently. Also crappy Wi-Fi if they even had a working wi-fi. Fortunately we had LTE with ATT so just streamed videos. In short this park, like Crooked River Ranch itself, has great potential, but is sub-par when compared to most private parks. Fortunately this is reflected in the price as well as it is lower than most. However given there are no amenities, it may still feel too high for the summer months. We camped at Crooked River Ranch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Port of Newport RV Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Nice coastal park for being in the city. No beach access, but great place to stay if going to Newport. Not far from state parks and beach access; but you will have to drive. Awesome view of the Newport Bridge (Yaquina Bay Bridge). Stayed there for the Newport Seafood and Wine festival. Outstanding location for traveling with a group for such an activity. The staff was friendly and the sites are well maintained. However they are close together and tight fit for large rigs. For this style of park, it is great. There is a nearby State Park on the beach... but you will not find sewer hookups or 50 amp power there. Plus you can't fit big rigs at that state park. So if you want 50 amp and pull through big rig spots, this is your best choice. No table or fire pits. No room for even your own table. We camped at Port of Newport RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pacific City RV & Camping Resort - Thousand Trails, Cloverdale, Oregon

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is NOT a Big Rig RV friendly place. Do not be suckered in by the wonderful promotional video done by the Owens (Owens are HGTV/Travel Channel personalities who are paid to create travel videos and shows.) This park may have 100s of spots, but only 1 through 46 are Sewer/Full Hook Up RV spots. And most of those will not accommodate Big Rig RVs. You must reserve stay through Thousand Trails. I was told at the time of my reservation that it would accommodate RVs over 40'. However I was NOT told this was a first come, first serve park. In other words... you are NOT guaranteed a specific spot with power or Sewer or of a certain size. Spots are assigned on a first come first serve basis. So the day of my arrival came and no available spot with Sewer or which would fit my RV. They would NOT refund my $40 deposit stating spots were still open. What is the point of even taking reservations if you truly are unable to reserve a spot for you RV. Thus if you don't care what type of spot you get, you will probably enjoy this park. It is not in a bad location. But if you have a big rig and require large spots WITH full-hook ups, this is not the park for you. Also as a side note you are limited to only two dogs per spot!

Don't stay here with a large RV. Or if you want sewer. For the price it is really sucks. Stay at the Oregon State Park for better hook ups and cheaper price.

Seal Rocks RV Cove, Seal Rock, Oregon

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed there for 3 days in February. What makes this park outstanding is the direct views of the ocean from most sites in the park. You can watch the ocean waves breaking on the rocks. Tide pools are present during low tide. Seals (as the name suggests) are also present on the rocks. Short walk to the beach from the park. Well maintained park for a small private RV park. Also check out their webpage. It has detailed information on each of the sites... which is helpful in selecting what space to stay in. We have a new 40' RV, so some spaces would be a bit small and difficult to maneuver in the upper parts of the park. Overall it was very pleasant and the view is what makes this park work. The only downside is the road noise from 101 in the lower sections of the park. Also the beach access area is very small. So no long walks on the beach at this location. Lastly the owners/staff are very friendly! Their positive and friendly attitude was great! We camped at Seal Rocks RV Cove in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverside RV Park, Chehalis, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Pros:

Nice Cement Pads, Great view of Golf Course out back windows,

Cons:

VERY noisy; No Wi-Fi; No public restrooms or showers; No Trash; No Outside tables;

No Fire pits

For the price, it is easy to get to and nice view of course. But you are between small airport, trains, and NOISY gold course. One does not normally expect a Golf Course to be noisy. But this one hosts public events such as weddings and parties. Expect private outdoor events with load music to and past mid-night.

Some spots are longer than others.

Also very weird that only ONE 40 gallon trash can for 20+ RV spaces... So trash piles up quickly.

In short... seen much worse private parks... but this is just a place to park your RV and stay a night or two. Great if you want to Golf... otherwise nothing to do here. This is NOT a spot for "camping". We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Casey's Riverside RV Park, Westfir, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

First let me state that I am probably more critical of RV parks than most.

Pros: Quiet park (except for nearby train tracks). Directly on the river. Super friendly staff. Long paved spaces.

Cons: Not much to do other than fishing. Park not maintained in areas Extremely poor Wi-Fi service.

Details: This is a highly rated park by Good Sam so I expected the best of the best. Unfortunately, while it is a nice park, I found it lacking in a few areas.

The two staff people I spoke to were extremely friendly and were genuinely concerned about providing a good experience. That said, I was disappointed to see that parts of the park were in need of maintenance. Some spots were clearly better maintained than others. Most had grass and plants separating the spaces. However some had dead grass or dirt and dead plants, as if the sprinklers stopped working and they never bothered or cared to fix it.

Secondly they list having a dog exercise area. Unfortunately, that area had obviously not been maintained for years. (The wire fence was rusted through with huge open spots that any small or medium size dog could fit through. The fence was only held by one working hinge and could not be closed.)

Third major complaint is that the wireless Internet service is so poor, I felt that AOL dial-up service from the 90s would have performed better. Each device must be registered separately, so one would assume that no one guest could "hog" all of the bandwidth. Yet it was so slow, regardless of time of day or night, that even text based emails would take many seconds to send. And forget trying to load any webpage, that would take many minutes if it would load at all. A standard HTML page would take like 5 minutes to load! And we were parked directly next to one of their servers, so we had full signal strength. Just unacceptable.

Lastly, not all spaces are created equal here. Some spaces are definitely premium with nice view of river and surrounded by grass. We camped at Casey's Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Monument RV park, Monument, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Monument is located on the North Fork of the John Day River, approximately 120 miles southwest of Pendleton, 60 miles northwest of John Day, 142 miles northeast of Bend, and 190 miles southeast from the Portland airport.

This is a combination Motel and RV park. The park is very quiet and peaceful. Located directly next to a large open field where wildlife such as deer, Mountain Goats and wild turkey can be spotted.

It is a very simple park with a friendly family owned staff. It could stand some improvements, but considering the very small town size, it is amazing it exists at all. We camped at Monument RV park in a Fifth Wheel.

Must see the John day fossil beds. The "town" of Monument is very small... about 125 people. This is the ONLY place in town to stay if you wish to visit here. And this is great place to visit if you wish to explore the John Day fossil Beds.

Hidden Pines RV Park, La Pine, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

First this park has a website which contains a map and photos. The park is NOT like the on-line photos. The grass is all dead and the park is not maintained at all. Do not be fooled! Specific problems are:

No staff at park. When you arrive you must call number posted and eventually a "manager" will arrive. No staff on duty to address issues.

Trashy appearance.

Spaces so narrow that they will not fit large double slide outs.

Very unfriendly staff and owner who refuses to resolve problems (read below for details.)

Unsecured credit card information! Your credit card number is written on post-it style note with your information and arrival date, paper-clipped and at desk for anyone to take or possibly see. (Office is locked as no one is there, but when you do enter with staff it is there.)

Park is mostly full-time "greatly discounted" monthly guests. This park is NOT geared to weekend travelers.

SHARED space outside your RV door. Yes that is correct. You must share your table space with your neighbor.

No room to walk dog or grass area for dogs to do their "business" in. Again see photo. If you want dead grass area, you must walk your dog directly next to someone else RV.

Park is in LOW INCOME trashy residential area. As in run down single wide mobile home and cars which do not run on other side of RV park fence.

Also rather weird is only one phone number is posted by the telephone... The Deschutes Sheriff's Department. (Not like in case of emergency, but like trouble is expected it seems... wow!)

I had to leave. My RV would not fit in the spot I had left. Park refused to refund. Feels like you are in the ghetto.

I strongly recommend holiday travelers to avoid this park. The State Park is just a few miles up the road. But if you want a "budget minded" property with no supervision, then this is your place. We camped at Hidden Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
