About Denise and Glenn

Full-timers since September with no sticks-and-bricks as of December 2016. Originally from Washington and Hawaii, we've lived in Arizona, Washington, Colorado, and now South Dakota together. We bought our first RV in August 2016, a 45' toy hauler, and we pull it with a Freightliner HDT.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This is our first stay in this park in March, which is historically the snowiest month in Denver. We've stayed here several other times at different times of the year, and have enjoyed each stay for different reasons. This time we hunkered down for the Bomb Cyclone storm and managed quite well. The staff was plowing the Abilene loop multiple times as the snow was falling, and after getting rid of the pile they dumped in front of our driveway it was easy to get out and around. We saw owls, a bald eagle, and deer - including an albino deer, never seen one of those before! The Abilene loop is the only one open in the winter, but it has water bibs that allow it whereas the other loops don't. Since it's full 100% of the time the parks system should consider opening/modifying at least one other loop. With the new reservation system they don't charge a reservation fee any longer, which is nice since the whole campground is now reservation only. If you show up you have to either get online or call the phone number to GET a reservation before you can stay. However, they also raised the daily camping rate to $41 per night. That's up from $30 per night (in person) in Sept/Oct 2016. That seems a bit excessive, over 30% in 3 years. The rangers were great, patrolling frequently. They even woke us up at 8 in the morning to tell us the storm was coming (sorry guys, but as full-timers the weather is our #1 concern at ALL times!). Thoughtful, though, as their warning was the wind might cause power outages. And if there's no power, there might be no water. Like good scouts, we're always prepared, and while the power flickered several times during the storm event it never went out long enough to confuse the appliances. Winter is an experience, another notch on our belt. We'll be back because it used to be our home and we have friends and family in the area. We truly like this park. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Get an annual pass if you're planning on 8 or more nights. Not only is it worth it (as in saving you money), but you're helping fund a great park system. Read our other reviews for area tips. It's Denver, Google it! :-)

Lake Pueblo State Park, Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This was a one-night stop on our way north. We stayed here to avoid higher winds further south, and it wasn't too bad here. We were the only ones in the campground besides the hosts. Pulled in just before dark, found a pull-thru that was long enough for us after noticing that the restrooms in all but the first loop are closed for the season, and got settled in. Walked over to the office with our check and envelope filled out and deposited it into the iron ranger. Kind of a lot to pay for an overnight stop with only electric, but we felt safe and secure and it was worth it. There are water spigots located about the park. The showers are in individual family-style rooms. We have the annual pass for Colorado state parks so we don't have to pay entrance fees. Totally worth it for us - and if you stay more than 10 nights it's a good deal. Kind of disappointed they've raised the rates on all the parks, but amenities cost money to keep up, and they do a good job. We disconnected so we could level the trailer, there was a bit too much slope to be comfortable otherwise. The picnic tables have wind shelters. We camped at Lake Pueblo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sky City RV Park, Acoma, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Just an overnight stop on our way through on I-40. We parked and walked over to the hotel registration desk, where the girl was friendly and helpful. She gave us the veteran's discount from seeing my husband's hat - we didn't ask for one. Great price for FHU. We signed up for the player's card and got some swag, played for a while after dinner - which wasn't bad - came away from the slots 50 cents ahead, and got a good night's sleep. Can't ask for much more. We would stay here again. We camped at Sky City RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Homolovi Ruins State Park, Winslow, Arizona

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

Stopped here for two nights this time so we could see the ruins and stand on the corner in Winslow. I booked our site online and there was an extra $5 fee for that, but it's worth it to know we have a spot we'll fit into. Our pull-thru had the electric post on the opposite side, but it was easy enough to get the cord under the trailer and hook up. The bathrooms are very clean, the showers that were working didn't look too bad, but we didn't use them. They're individual rooms. One of them looked like it had been vandalized, the other one was closed. Only two of the four appeared to be usable. The park is clean, and the visitor center is nice. The ranger on duty was an archaeologist and was very informative. We visited the old Sunset cemetery and the larger ruins. It was a nice outing on a cool sunny day. Homolovi is a great stop along I-40. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

In Winslow the La Posada hotel is worth a visit. Just up the road from Homolovi SP is a county park with views of part of the painted desert - it looks a lot like the SD badlands - but the park itself is trashed and the bathrooms are locked and vandalized.

Orange County Fair & Events Center, Costa Mesa, California

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

We stayed here because we had been evacuated from a nearby campground due to flooding rains. It's first-come first-served, but once there you can pay for as many nights as you want, 14-day limit. Or you pay by the day. They accept credit cards now. There are a few full-hookup sites on pavement, and many more around the edges of that area on dirt. ALL of the dirt ones were closed when we were there, and for good reason with all the rain they had been having. The electrical hookup is 20-amp unless you pay $70 for the duration of your stay for them to turn on the 30 or 50-amp. Not bad if you're staying the 14 days, but we weren't sure so we didn't opt for that. We were able to run the generator until 10 pm at night, and plugged in a heavy extension cord so we could run a space heater. It also ran the TV, coffee pot, and computer, and allowed us to recharge our devices. Not bad! The price is a good deal compared to other RV parks in the area, where you can expect to pay $55 - $255 per night. There are a few state parks in the area, but you have to be small to fit in those. The fee is lower, but the $15 daily entrance fee puts it right up there equal to or higher, without full hookups at most of them. Check the website for major events that might cause the RV area to be closed to the public. Enter at gate 5 off of Arlington - the security entrance. Phone number is posted if gate is closed. We camped at Orange County Fair & Events Center in a Fifth Wheel.

O'Neill Regional Park, Trabuco Canyon, California

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We chose this park because it was closest to relatives, and we really weren't disappointed. It's hard to beat the rate - $15 per night for seniors, $20 for others. Our site had a water spigot. No electricity anywhere in the park, including the bathrooms, which are open to the outside air and VERY cold in the winter - but the water is hot, push-button style showers. You can run the generator from 8 am to 8 pm. Several sites are designated for RVs only, which is nice when you're big like we are. There were only six spots we would fit in, and even though they're all pull-thrus, a few of them we would have had to back out of (or into) because the opposite road was too narrow to make the turn. The spot I chose online wound up being perfect for us. Roads getting in are tight, especially at the ranger station gates and that first turn, but we managed. One thing to note - the entire park is in the Holy fire debris flow area, and could be evacuated if heavy rains are predicted. We were grateful that they were on top of this, and were evacuated after our second night. Our money was refunded, and they rescheduled us for a few extra nights on the other end, which was nice. We found another place to stay for the nine nights the campground wound up being closed, but that extended our total stay in the area by five days, which we put to good use. If it were drier we could have taken advantage of the many hiking paths in the area, but it was so wet that most of them were closed while we were there. There is a dump station, and we were able to back into it from the main road to use it on the way out - the loop configuration was just too tight and small for us to get around it. We would definitely come back here again! We camped at O'Neill Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Trabuco General store is within walking distance via paths inside the park. Their Taco Tuesday is advertised as being excellent (go early or be disappointed), but the truck was out of service, so no tacos for us. :-( There's a steakhouse next door that gets really good reviews that we didn't get to try this time. In Aliso Viejo, try Opah Seafood Grill. Amazing! Truly the best seafood meal in a long, long time. The Trabuco Canyon Post Office is right across the street from the campground.

Picacho Peak State Park, Picacho, Arizona

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

We stayed here for three nights. This park is nicely laid out and very clean. Electric hookup only, but it was 50 amp and worked great. We knew coming in and had full fresh tanks. We are 68' long with our Freightliner and 45' fifth wheel, and we had no issues manuevering in the campground or getting into our spot. Later we walked the whole campground taking notes, and found quite a few spots we could fit in. The trails in the park are great - they really challenge you, but reward you with great views and a sense of accomplishment! It was quiet, and although we could hear the train rumbling a little it wasn't a bother - obviously not too many intersections nearby that would force them to blow the whistle. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely return again. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is between Phoenix and Tucson. There's not a lot of shopping nearby, so come prepared to CAMP. The camp office can give you some information on the history of the area, but you have to ask. Enjoy the amazing hiking opportunities, including spots where steel cables are anchored into rock and you're climbing the face like a ladder. So much fun!

Cattail Cove State Park, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

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

We had reserved two nights at Cattail Cove so we would have a free day to check out the area. We wound up having tire trouble on the way and got in after dark. Fortunately our pull-through was at the close end of the row, so we were able to get in easily. Getting out by pulling through was NOT going to happen, however, it was just too tight. We wound up backing out and going through to the overflow/boat parking area, where there was lots of room to turn around. They also allow dry camping in that lot, and have it marked off for RVs. The dump station is very conveniently located and can be accessed going both directions. We would love to come back again, there are several trails we didn't get a chance to try. We did hike to the top of a hill right next to the campground and got some good pictures. Great access to the lake, this would be a nice place to stay in warmer weather to take advantage of the water. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thunderbird RV & Camping Resort, Monroe, Washington

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We were back at our "used-to-be-home" campground to spend Christmas with the family. This time - at the coldest time of the year - the park was nearly full. The gal at the gatehouse suggested we would fit in #30, so we walked over to check it out. It was barely long enough for our rig, but an easy back-in as it was right next to the interior road and almost parallel. We took it, and noticed there was a handicap sign on the site post. We double-checked with the gatehouse, but she said it wasn't marked that way on her paperwork (and not on the map they hand out either), so she said not to worry. We were able to park the truck at the playground so it was just a walk across our "lawn" and the camp road. Not too bad. We had a sewer hookup, but only 30-amp electric. That was its own issue - the power went below what our EMS system allows and shut off multiple times. It always came back on, but was really a nuisance. Perhaps the power should be the next upgrade they work on here. The campground was full the entire two weeks we were there. It seems that if that is happening here, when winter is the absolute worst time of the year to be here - constant rain, just warm enough to not be snowing, mud and wet everywhere - that perhaps corporate should consider that TOO MANY sites have been sold as "personal sites". Just my opinion - about a campground that has been in our membership for over 30 years. We're glad to see some improvements being made, they are long overdue, and I don't see how the greater membership is being served when so few of them can get in because so many sites are not available. We camped at Thunderbird RV & Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Seaside RV Resort, Thousand Trails , Seaside, Oregon

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first stay at this campground in over 20 years. We stayed on the north side where the pool is located, and were fortunate to get the spot we did. It was along the outside of the loop that goes around the bathhouse, which was as far from the entrance as you could get. It looked like it might have recently been a "personal site". It was wide, and we had some concrete for a patio, so that was nice with the wet weather. Most other transient sites did not have any concrete, and only a handful were long enough for us. There is a storage section where you could park extra vehicles, but it would have been a long walk so we're glad we fit. The campground looked like it's been kept up pretty well. The best thing about it is the location - proximity to the beach and lots of history in the area to explore. We didn't use any of the facilities except the bathhouse, but we did find some holly bushes near the resort entrance and made a wreath for our truck! Nothing like a little holiday cheer to help make the most of the dreary northwest December. We camped at Seaside RV Resort, Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails - Whalers Rest RV Park, South Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This park is part of our Thousand Trails-used-to-be-Leisure-Time membership that we've had for 30 years. Since we had never visited this one before we thought we'd give it a try on our way north to Washington for the holidays. We were apprehensive about our size, and it was a bit tight but do-able. I can imagine it would be worse in the summer when the park is full of rigs and too many cars/trucks. The gal in the office gave us some suggestions about where we would fit, and after driving around the south loop and the north loop, we selected the spot we thought was best. Since TT campgrounds are usually first-come first served it makes us a bit nervous because we are so long. Our site was perfect for us, plenty long enough for the trailer and the truck. It wouldn't have worked if we'd wanted to get the motorcycles out, but since it was rainy and cold December we knew they were staying in the garage. We really liked the easy access to the beach park across the street. Cable was offered, but only worked briefly at our site so we weren't charged for it. Since it is a campground there was a bit of mud, but that's what boots are for. Because our site was sloped at the front where the truck sat, we decided to time our exit after a few dry days so we wouldn't slip pulling out. We had watched others have serious issues with that when it was raining, and we know they didn't weigh half what we weigh. We were flexible, so that worked for us. It's all about knowing your limitations when you're full-timing, right? Overall we liked it here, and even though it was winter we enjoyed the proximity to the ocean. We saw whales spouting and caught some amazing sunsets, and all we had to do was walk down a short path and across the highway. We camped at Thousand Trails - Whalers Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Seven Feathers RV Resort, Canyonville, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We've stayed here before, it's a place we'll go out of our way to get to when traveling through on I-5. This time we drove in the dark to get there, something we rarely do. But we're familiar with the layout and they had room for us, so we went for it. We got into our pull-thru with no issues - they lead you in, so you don't have to guess in the dark. The shuttle picks you up, just give them a call, and they'll drop you off at the front door of the casino. The buffet has pretty good food, and the price is right. Mid-week we paid $10-11 each for dinner. Get the player's card, it's worth it. You get a discount on meals and on the RV park rates, and they'll also give you a AAA or Good Sam's discount. It's a bit on the pricey side for us, but it's so clean and convenient and safe that we don't mind for the few times we stay here. The casino is fun and the food is good, we consider it an entertainment stop. We camped at Seven Feathers RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Voyager RV Resort & Hotel, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed five nights at Voyager on our way through to California and north for the holidays. We've been here before and loved it. This time we used our Thousand Trails "Trails Collection" to get the $20 rate. This park is super-clean, and has every activity you could imagine. Everyone is welcomed and has full use of the facilities. I was able to check out a key for the sewing room and take advantage of the large tables to get some projects started. We were able to rest a bit, get some things done, and check out the spot we would have when we come back in January. There's a restaurant on-site that has decent food, nothing fancy - but great when you don't feel like cooking. Their tortilla soup is really good, I'd eat that every day if they had it! The park was pretty empty, the "season" hasn't started yet for most of the snowbirds. The premium site we had this time is larger than the regular sites, most of the premiums are pull-thrus and they are fairly spacious side-to-side. They have cable, but ours was fuzzy, and you can get great reception OTA from the local Tucson stations. The gals in the office and the mailroom are friendly and helpful. All-in-all a great place, we'll be back! We camped at Voyager RV Resort & Hotel in a Fifth Wheel.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first stay at Orange Grove, and it pretty much sets the bar. The sites are 60' or 90' long, and almost all are pull-thrus except some in the long-term area, which is separate from the transient side. The bathrooms and showers were spotless, the grounds are tidy and clean, and there are orange trees everywhere! It wasn't quite picking season yet in November, but it was still neat to see all the oranges on the trees. While the roads inside the park are fairly easy to navigate, the amount of orange trees does mean larger rigs will need to swing really wide to make some of the turns.

We stayed at this little park for two nights so we could tour the pistachio farm up the road. The owner met us at the entrance and showed us to our spot in the back, a nice pull-through. We don't mind a gravel lot when we're traveling, we just need a safe place to spend the night. This little park has been taken back by its former owner and his pride in the place really shows. The next morning we got a personal tour of the park and even got some free pecans to taste (they were really good). Good OTA reception from El Paso. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the world's largest pistachio and take an informative tour. The $2 ticket gets you a free cookie, and they have free tastings of their different flavored pistachios, pecans, and brittles. Lots of yumminess in that store, along with some pretty decent wines! Don't forget to see White Sands NM. The sunset ranger walk was really good.
