Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA , Arco, Idaho

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

Price is average of $10 difference between Labor Day holiday rates and normal rates. This is an older, somewhat small KOA campground, with gravel roads and sites that are almost but not quite level, with some ruts and depressions that could use some filling. However, there are some nice mature willows to provide much needed shade at this time of year when it can be very hot. Some of the willows could use some trimming though. Sites are a little close together, but have seen much worse. The bathroom, shower, and laundry facilities were dated but serviceable and were kept clean. They had a little camp store with basic necessities, and were able to fill propane tanks. Their WiFi was decent (especially after Labor Day crowds left), and Verizon coverage was good. They also had good basic cable TV. Up until Labor Day, they had a few other nice perks, like free waffles made in morning, evening ice cream socials, and weekend $10 per person wine "tasting" from a couple Idaho vineyards, which was a bit of a hoot - less of a wine tasting experience than a way to drink a bunch of mediocre wine and socialize with your fellow campers, but hey, it was fun. Park staff were very friendly. They also had a small enclosed dog park, a nice little pool that was very popular over holiday weekend, and a small playground. All in all, a pleasant stop for a few nights and we would stay again if in area. We camped at Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Only two real attractions in area, both worth stops. Experimental Breeder Reactor #1 (EBR-1) in one direction, and of course Craters of the Moon National Monument in other. To do all the hikes and stops in the Monument justice, plan on a day and a half- and get an early start in summer before it gets hot!

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

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

What a nice oasis for a 3-day stop through the high desert sage steppes of Idaho. Easy access from Interstate, but far enough away that there is no significant noise. Only a handful of year-round or seasonals, but they are all well-kept. Paved, very wide roads in park and fairly spacious and well manicured, well maintained sites. If you can, try to get site in the older section of park, especially in summer, as it has large mature trees that provide much needed shade. New expansion area very nice too, but no shade at all. Nice private bathroom/shower rooms, nice laundry, great staff that were very responsive. Nice pool too, with 8-10 pm adult only hours, a nice touch. Very good cable TV, as well as OTA TV. Wifi was adequate, Verizon service very good. They do accept mail for guests. Would definitely stay here again if in area. We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hood Park - COE, Pasco, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park with spacious sites on the Snake River where it enters the Columbia River. Paved roads and sites; pull throughs are arcs off the main park loop. Levelness of sites varies. Can fill with water upon entry, but uses same lanes as dump station, so could get backed up. Gates are locked between 10:00 pm and 6:00 am, and absolutely no early arrivals before their 2:00pm check in time. Saw Sheriff patrolling on occasion, a plus. Nice clean bathrooms and showers, but showers have no hooks or private changing area, pretty much forced to change in common area. No WiFi or cable of course, but OTA TV and Verizon coverage were good. Pretty quiet, except when barges and tankers across river are being loaded or unloaded. There is "puncture weed" (aka Goathead vine) on trails around lagoon area, so don't take your dogs down there or they will get spiked. The park has a day use roped off swimming area on river, but water did not look too inviting despite the 95F days. Would stay again if in area for short while. We camped at Hood Park - COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Pleasant RV Park, Bothell, Washington

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

A surprisingly nice and quiet campground tucked into a hollow in surrounding hills in this Seattle suburb, with fairly easy access from I-405 (make sure you use exit 26 though.) As others have noted, campground is densely populated, but the use of tall arborvitaes between sites gives a sense of separation from your neighbors. There are good number of apparent long-term guests. The surrounding hills helped to create the small lake the campground is arranged around, and you will listen to ducks and bullfrogs at night, and hardly any traffic noise. Unfortunately, there are also geese and their poop aplenty too. Paved roads and sites, but many not level, especially those right at lake edge- be prepared to use blocks. Backing into some sites with a medium to large fifth wheel can be a real challenge due to narrow road widths, and parked vehicles or barricades across from your site, a drawback. Another drawback is lack of any security or entry control, and day after we arrived, park staff came around warning people with bikes that there had been some recent thefts of high-end bicycles, with cables cut, etc. Have to give them credit for the warning though. Nice bathrooms and showers and laundry, although latter has limited capacity relative to them number of sites. Basic cable TV was very snowy and poor, but you can pay for upgraded service. OTA TV reception was great. Verizon coverage very good. Did not use the park WiFi. Park has a small storage lot that they charge $10/day to put your RV in, with some electrical service, if your plans include flying or taking a ferry to spend some days away. Overall, would stay again if in Seattle area. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Toutle River RV Resort, Castle Rock, Washington

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

Park is squeezed in between Interstate 5 and a very active railroad main line, so expect the noise. Credit to the park folks for reminding us of this when we made reservations for just a couple nights. So yes, we expected the noise- but what I didn't expect was how the passing freight trains caused ground and RV to shake, and our site was situated in middle of park, an equal distance from highway and railroad. Oh well. Super easy access from I-5, of course. They have paved roads that can be pinched in places depending on where guests park their vehicles, but for most part were easy to navigate. Grassy/gravel sites not always level, so be prepared. We were given a very nice shaded spot in pines, but tree branches needed trimming as they pressed against slides on both sides and were low over roof. Another credit to park, they sent maintenance crew over immediately to trim them when I called office about it. Other sites were mix of full shade to full sun. Nice clean bathrooms and showers, but placed at ends of this elongated park, making it a long walk to them from middle of park. They also had the best dog washing station we ever saw, a raised platform with step up and little social picnic area adjoining, although it was a bit weird that it abutted a rental cabin with guests - would not have wanted to be in that cabin (or the one that shared the far end bathroom/shower facility- strange setup.) Limited OTA TV reception, and no cable, and Verizon signal was only moderately strong. WiFi was slow. Nice walking trail to river from one end. Laundry had sign indicating closed indefinitely, but office staff said it was open but use at own risk due to recurring problem with iron/rust staining people's light-colored clothes. Another surprising drawback was a $20/day fee for a guest vehicle!?! Did not affect us, but was most outrageously expensive fee for that we've ever encountered. Overall, would stay again if needed when passing through. We camped at Toutle River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sandy Riverfront RV Resort, Troutdale, Oregon

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

Very nice campground well situated along the Sandy River just a mile or so upstream of where it joins the Columbia. Well landscaped and maintained. There are an estimated 50-60 percent seasonals here, but all are well kept, quiet, and friendly folks as far as we could tell in a 16 day stay. Wide paved roads, very easy to maneuver big rigs. Pads are concrete, but many need repairs with cracks and sags, so may need wood under tires to level depending on how you place your rig. Nice clean bathroom, shower, and laundry facilities and small clubhouse. Wifi worked well most times. They have digital-only cable TV that requires you to borrow a box from office and make connection direct to TV, but we did not use as OTA TV reception was excellent. Verizon coverage also excellent. They do have recycling containers for all materials, a plus. The row of back-in sites along riverfront where we were are very nice but do expect heavy recreation use in river during summer, especially on opposite shore. Staff were very good about accommodating a few changes to our plans that emerged during our stay. Would definitely stay again when visiting Portland area. Beware, check calendar for local events in downtown Troutdale- one Sunday they closed road all day for car show, created nightmare situation for any RVs wanting to exit or enter park. Be sure to look at driving directions on park website; highly recommend using I-84 exit to Lewis and Clark Park due to busy very narrow bridge you would have to cross to reach the CG. Use Troutdale exit instead, and drive slowly through nice little downtown area 3-4 blocks long. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Beverly Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Paved roads and sites, for the most part level. Very busy place in summer in this large park. That, coupled with lots of low hanging tree branches, and a lack of consistent enforcement of keeping people's 2nd and 3rd vehicles out of roadway, can make maneuvering a midsize to large RV very difficult. Only trash and recycling collection point is at entrance, a long way from the further loops of park, so plan to drive it out there. No cable, no Wifi, and absolutely no Verizon coverage in the loops of park further from Route 101, but OTA TV was surprisingly good. They seem to have chronic sewer problems in loops furthest from road, with periodic bathroom/shower facility closures. To their credit, they did bring in port-a-pottys during a long outage, but still not exactly what one would like in a camping experience. Jays and crows sometimes like pecking on RV roof, be aware. Overall, would not stay again in busy summer season. We camped at Beverly Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park, Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This very large park has paved roads and sites, fairly level. Roads are a bit narrow and driving them can be tough if extra cars and ATV trailers encroach from other's sites...and there are a lot of ATV's, as riding the adjacent Oregon Dunes is a big attraction of this park. Sites a bit closer together than one might expect from a State Park, but still not as bad as some commercial parks that pack you in. Great majority of sites are densely shaded. No cable or WiFi, and Verizon signal is very weak, typical of Oregon coast, and a signal booster is recommended (it worked well for us.) OTA TV reception also spotty. Only trash and recycling collection point is at entrance, a long way from the further loops of park, so plan to drive it out there. With such crowds in summer, tough to keep the somewhat dated bathroom/shower facilities clean, but they try. Park itself has nice trails, and renting kayaks to paddle Cleawox Lake is highly recommended. Overall, would not stay here again during crowded summer season. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort, Sisters, Oregon

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

This park has beautiful grounds that are very well maintained- which includes a frequent watering schedule, so be on your toes when walking around. The week we arrived, they even had a paving company in to redo several spots in the roads that were bumpy due to tree roots. The paved roads and sites are easy to maneuver and mostly level. An escort is sent with you to your site upon check-in, and provided expert help in guiding back-ins. Good cable TV, and Verizon coverage. The Wifi was good when not during peak times. Nice pool and spa, and modest camp store. Trash pickup daily from your site, but oddly for Oregon, no meaningful recycling efforts. There is a full spectrum recycling center just up road in Sisters. They will also pick up empty propane bottles curbside and fill and return them, although I did not use this service. They do accept incoming mail for guests. Nice dog walking trail, with some exercise stations, and a few fenced dog runs scattered around grounds. Sites are large with generous spacing, very refreshing. Very nice bathroom/shower facilities, although showers are not totally private. The laundry facility is really insufficient capacity for size of park. The great downfall of this park is the constant road noise on busy Route 20 right in front. I made our reservation over 6 months in advance and asked to be placed away from road, yet still was given site close to it. We camped at Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground with easy access off Route 97. Yes, the paved entry road has uneven cracks that are pretty bumpy, just need to take it slow. The camp loop roads are paved, as are the RV sites. Most were level, except for some of the pull-throughs along the camp loop road. Almost all sites are fully shaded by mature pines. Driving a big rig around the loop is manageable, but as others have noted, backing in to certain sites can be a real challenge based on somewhat narrow roads and some unfortunately located big rocks and trees across from some sites, so use the park map and site images to carefully select your site if you are able. Was not able to park truck in my site (38-ft site), but it was not too far away. Many use lights under RV, open truck hoods at night to prevent wood rat/chipmunk damage to under hood insulation, etc. They have no WiFi, no cable, and for us, no OTA TV reception, but Verizon signal was decent. The bathrooms are dated State Park standard, but at least this year, the good team of park hosts and staff maintain them very well. Hot water in bathrooms takes a while but is good. I would stay again if in area. Mosquitoes in region are awful in June, so be prepared. We camped at Collier Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Seven Feathers RV Resort, Canyonville, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects Good Sam discount plus added 10% discount for getting their casino Players Card. This is easily the nicest campground we have stayed at in over 50 that we have visited so far. Upon check-in you are escorted to your paved and level site through the beautiful and well-maintained grounds, on nice wide, paved, and easily maneuvered roads. Good site spacing, with nice trees, grass, and shrubs, and a small creek winds through the grounds. Great utility hook up stands, stable power for the 12 days we stayed here as a part of a rally that filled the entire park. Lots of private room bathroom and shower facilities in buildings dispersed around park. Wifi was overloaded when we where here, so did not use. Verizon service was good. Good cable TV selection, not snowy. Two sewer hook ups to accommodate rigs of varying lengths. Group pavilions, horseshoes, and indoor pool (which we did not use), a lending library, and courteous and helpful staff. Good recycling facilities. There is even a 24-hour shuttle bus provided by the associated casino that will take you back and forth to anywhere in the small town, not just the casino. Only drawback, which was minor, is that despite distance from interstate, you can still hear traffic even at far end of park...which is also where you will hear shots from nearby shooting range pretty much all day. We camped at Seven Feathers RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

For more wineries, pick up an Umpqua Valley wine trail map and head up to Roseburg, about 20-25 minutes away. The south Oregon coast is stunning, and for us was worth the 2 hour drive to get there.

Mountain Gate RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Cost reflects weekly rate; we stayed here for 2 weeks. They have a $1/day extra charge for a dog. This is a nice little campground with very easy access to and from I-5. While it is close to the interstate, at mid-campground area where we were, the noise was not bad at all. The CG is on a bit of a hillside, so the sites are arranged in a terrace fashion, which worked well, and they have a reasonable amount of spacing. Most of the sites had a tree or 2 to provide shade. The CG is clean and well-maintained, with a number of what appear to be seasonal folks (or perhaps those who lost homes in recent wildfires, sadly) in sites around the edges. We had plenty of room to maneuver on the paved roads, and the concrete site pad was level. Space for parking your truck at site is limited. Their cable TV worked well, and Verizon signal was good. Only used their Wifi a couple times, but we were able to good and it was serviceable, but not fast. Nice laundry facility. While they have a fenced dog park and a bocce court, both looked pretty awful and not very usable...the dog park is basically all gravel and crushed stone. We camped at Mountain Gate RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Shasta-Trinity-Whiskeytown National Recreation Areas nearby, but be advised that Whiskeytown was 97% burned in the huge 2018 Carr wildfire and will be years to recover. Nice hiking trails in Shasta Lake area, but poison oak is *everywhere* so learn what it looks like. Check out the architecturally famous Sundial Bridge in Redding, a short way south on I-5. Sacramento River Trail is great paved bike trail between Shasta Dam and town of Redding.

Skyline Wilderness Park, Napa, California

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

Rate reflects lower prices back when I made reservation; it is now $10/night higher. This is a really well run and well-maintained park that is a bargain for Napa area. Road to camping area is paved, road in camp area, and all the sites, are gravel. Lots of maneuvering room. Spaces can be a little off level, up to 3 inches or so, not bad. Space for parking a truck can be tight. We were in 2 different sites over 2 weeks stay. Sites are mix of water/electric (W/E), with a handful of full hook-up (FHU) sites. Odd thing is that it is first come first served for the FHU sites, the reservation only guarantees you a W/E site. We started out in a W/E site, and were allowed to move to a FHU site when it became open, a painless process that staff cheerfully allowed. Bathroom and showers were convenient and cleaned daily; there is no laundry or camp store in this regional park. The park itself, which is on former grounds of nearby state hospital, is huge, and has lots of things you can do, from disc golf, to a variety of mountainside hikes and expert mountain biking trails, to horseback riding, and an archery range. Water quality was good with low hardness. WiFi was spotty when we tried to use it, so we relied on Verizon for hot spots, and the signal was good. Nice dog park area, and as bonus, a large interesting garden by the California Native Plant Society. Would definitely stay here again if in area. We camped at Skyline Wilderness Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wine tastings are expensive, and reservations may be required at many area wineries. Napa Valley Vine Bike trail goes about 12 miles up to Yountville, but is often not that scenic. For trip to San Francisco recommend ferry from Vallejo to avoid traffic. Day trips to Point Reyes National Seashore and scenic Marin Headlands, which offers fantastic views of Golden Gate Bridge, can be made from here. Stone Brewery in town is great, with good food.

Lemon Cove Village RV Park, Lemon Cove, California

Date of Stay: April, 2019 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects 2 week stay and Good Sam. If you arrive in mid-April, one of first things that you will notice is the intoxicatingly wonderful smell of orange blossoms, as park sits among acres and acres of surrounding citrus groves. This is nice park, on the small side, and just far enough off highway that road noise is not bad. All park roads and RV sites are gravel, fairly easy to maneuver, and fairly level. Some spots have shade, others not so much. Grounds are well maintained, although bathroom cleaning and servicing was sometimes uneven. Beautiful pool, which they were nice enough to open a month ahead of schedule to to heat wave we had here one week. Power was stable for two weeks. No cable TV, OTA TV brought in a few channels fairly well, and Verizon signal was good. Only tried the park WiFi a couple times, and it seemed only useful if you walked up hill from sites to the office area. Note that there is no US mail delivery to park, and Lemon Cove post office has irregular hours, but you can have General Delivery mail sent to nearby Exeter, where you will also find best supermarkets and diesel prices. Nice views of surrounding hills, and an overall quiet and relaxing place. would definitely consider staying here again if in area. We camped at Lemon Cove Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Plan on an hour to get into main part of Sequoia National Park, and almost an hour to drive up twisting, narrow roads (CA 245) to swing around to enter Kings Canyon NP. Closer to camp, small Dry Creek Preserve on Dry Creek Road has a nice little trail that you can take dog on and is good for birding. Craft brewery fans can find one in Three Rivers, up road towards Sequoia, and in Visalia.

Price reflects weekly rate. Nice little CG right off US 101, which is both good and bad. Easy access from highway, but if you need to take RV up 101-North next, be very patient waiting for safe gap in speeding traffic to cross over, as there is no light here- can be very dicey! Fortunately, being north of town and most attractions, we rarely had to cross both lanes of 101 at once. Paved interior road, very good maneuvering space, and level gravel site with a nice grass plot on end of row for us. Check in very smooth, and informative, as I got great tips on area wineries and other attractions. Well maintained and quiet within campground...except for the incessant highway noise. Good cable, but with limited channel selection. Good WiFi, and Verizon signal strong. Nice clean bathroom/shower and laundry facilities. Water tested very hard, so water softener is advised. Would stay here again, especially when looking at prices of other highly rated CG's in area. We camped at Paso Robles RV Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Wineries are fabulous, and many have no or low charge for tastings, but some can be very pricey for their tastings and/or require purchase of up to 3 bottles to waive the fee. Highway 1 up Monterey Coast to Big Sur is stunning and visit Hearst Castle to take in over-the-top opulence. Pinnacles National Park east entrance is about 90 minutes away and worth a trip to hike and see condors. Firestone Walker brewery just down road is excellent and has good food.
