Gilgal Oasis RV Park, Sequim, Washington

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

As stated, this is a small park, with every space available used. Sites are very nicely kept, if small. When we open up our Toy hauler, we are 50' long, and we then have to park 2 motorcycles and a truck. We parked our truck on the street across from our rig, and then we fit fine in a pull through site. We could have maneuvered the truck in front of the rig, but having the street available worked for us. The sites are very well manicured, and each site had a picnic table and enough room to enjoy being outside. The staff was so very helpful, parking, finding things in town, and suggesting tours. There is a social time every Tuesday night, which is a nice thing to socialize, if you like. The proximity to Olympic Park was great, as well as Port Townsend, Port Angeles, and other sites close by. The town itself is the regular shops you find anywhere, but in June and July, they have a lavender festival, and everything is done up in lavender colors - it is really pretty. We camped at Gilgal Oasis RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved Olympic NP, and Hurricane Ridge was one of the most amazing views we have had in any park.ness Spit, but not the whole length. Take the Whale tour out of Port Townsend - wonderful! There are many quiet beaches to be found, if you want a relaxing day If you need to head East from this area, it was worth it to take the Ferry out of Port Townsend. Saved us driving down around Seattle and back up

Eastcreek Campground, Mineral, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a small, family owned park. Very well planned out and run. The owners and the camp hosts were among the nicest we have encountered. They were willing to help with anything we needed, and stopped by to chat a few times. They gave us lots of information on things to see and do around the area. There are not a huge amount of sites in this campground, and the majority are smaller, made for tents or small campers, but there are a few that will accommodate larger rigs. We have a 43' toy hauler and fit great in site #3 - their largest, and best site, situated right on the creekside. There was sketchy cell service, but if we were outside it worked ok. We could get online here and there, t00. No satellite, no tv. But we enjoyed watching some of our old movies at night after our campfires.

The only real drawback for us (besides being offline and no TV...) was having to dump instead of sewer hookups. There is a dump station, and if you stay more than 2 nights, there is no charge, but we could not get to it without a lot of maneuvering, so chose to carry our "load" to the next campground. We could have done it, but decided we were ok to travel that day.

Mt Rainier Park is just about 20 miles away, and easy to get to. But we also went into Seattle for a baseball game, drove to Mt St Helens ( 2 hours away, but worth it!), and then down to Portland to Multnomah Falls, because we were told they "were not to be missed!" They were awesome, but maybe not a day's worth of driving. The park is peaceful, and relaxing. No amenities, except horseshoes and tether ball. And kids and adult both loved playing in the creek, as it was hot the first couple of days here. We would return to this park. Sad to hear it is for sale, hope someone who loves it as much as they do, buy it. We camped at Eastcreek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Do your laundry and stock up on groceries before you arrive, as the nearest real grocery is about 15 miles away.

Good hamburger bar only a couple of miles away, though, and a gas station. Great wi fi right outside the park, about 1/2 mile down the road.

Mt St Helens is just about 2 hours away, and worth the drive. We went to the Johnston Ridge Observatory, and were not disappointed at all.

Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park), Prospect, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

As stated, this park is not huge, but so nice! Nestled in the trees, and the sites are big rig friendly. We called months in advance, and got a very large back-in site that fit our toy hauler, which, when the gate is opened up, is 50' long. It fit nicely, even with the truck up front. The staff is very helpful. They trips they give you to take on your own are wonderful - just wish they had told us one was snowed in before we tried to go up the mountain. There was no TV or satellite connection for us, but they have DirecTV boxes they will rent you for about $4 a day that you connect right to your TV, and there you go. They also have a huge library of movies you can borrow, which we used. Cell and WiFi were sketchy, but we have found that most everywhere in N California and Oregon. We are making do. Verizon will be hearing from us, though :) If you want to have a fire, just ask for a fire pit, and it will be delivered to your site. Wood isn't any more expensive than other parks, but is good wood. We were pleased with our choice of campgrounds here. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Stock up on groceries and do your laundry before coming. Small store in town, and laundry is in town. Do sightseeing outside of Crater Lake NP. So much more to see! We loved the waterfalls and Avenue of the Big Boulders.

Crescent City / Redwoods KOA, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

As stated, the RV sites are open. We chose a premium site, as we are very long, and it was great. A concrete patio next to the rig with a fire pit, swing, and table and chairs. The other RV sites were closer together. The tent sites and cabins in the woods were amazing - right in the redwoods. But - no sunlight in there! The laundry was very clean, and reasonably priced. The staff was the most helpful group of people we have encountered in a campground in a long time. They have information on self guided tours, hikes, the parks, and so much more. When we went to the information center in town, and they found out where we were staying, they said they could not tell us much more, and if we had any questions, ask the owners here. They were also helpful in finding things in town, and even delivered our Amazon packages right to our site when they arrived. It's not a huge park, so not too noisy or crowded. We met some nice people here, too. The park is close to the Oregon coast, and the Redwoods, so it's in a perfect place to see both. And with the town only 5 miles away, it is convenient to get groceries and supplies. We camped at Crescent City / Redwoods KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA, Petaluma, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $74.00
Overall Rating:

As said in many reviews, this is a huge park - I was told it is the largest KOA in the country. Perhaps it is. Extremely busy. There are children everywhere, and people milling about everywhere. However, we did notice that at quite time, it was. Our site ( #173) was right across from the rec center, where entertainment was held almost nightly. Not an ideal quiet site. No satellite in this site, either. As stated before, the sites are not level. We were not paying attention to this as much as we should have, and we ended up dropping our 5th wheel on the truck as we unhooked, because our rig rolled back, and we had not chalked the rig wheels. Our fault, but a level site would have helped - they run slightly uphill.... There is a brand new part of the park that we wish we had known about, with large pull through sites with patios, in a very quiet part of the park. If we ever stay here again, we will pay the extra $$ and stay there. The laundry facilities have the best looking machines I have seen in any park for a long time. The tour of San Francisco that is offered through the park is excellent! Well worth the $$. So informative and entertaining! And the people at the front desk are very helpful answering questions about getting into the city, and things to do. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Proximity to San Francisco is the draw of this park. An hour gets you to the bay, if traffic is not bad. We took a ferry right to a Giants game, and the public bus that picked up about a mile from the park and took us right down to Pier 33 for an Alcatraz tour (book these way in advance!) . Pick your site from their website map, and pay the fee to reserve it for yourself - away from the cabins and the rec tent, if you want some quiet.

Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails, Groveland, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

The park is located very close to the Big Oak Entrance to the park, which is convienient. Roads are scary getting to this town, when you are pulling a large camper! 5 mile road with a tough, winding, steep grade. The death of many trucks and campers, I think. Make sure your brakes and transmission are in good shape.

Anyway, the campground is in need of some TLC... there was a flood this spring, we but did not see anyone working to do any repairs while we were there. I do not like the " first come, first get" sites, either. I stressed all day that I would not find a spot. We did find a large pull through, in a large, grassy, dusty meadow. No shade for the pull through sites. Members only in the shady spots, which were all back in spots.

There is NO Verizon at all... we were given directions to drive to a forestry road about 4 miles away to make calls. They have wifi. So weak- and you had to be at the lodge to get any at all. For the price, you'd think they could invest in better equipment.... I'd pay more for that. The small store was convenient, but way expensive! We paid $8.00 for a gallon of milk! I did not think that the people at the desk were very helpful in answering questions about Yosemite Park - which is why most of us were there, I would think! We camped at Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

The park! But be there early in the day during Summer season! Get into the park early, park your vehicle, and use the shuttle system. Or take a tour bus - we took one to Glacier Point, and it was great! Don't ask questions at desk about the park- they were not very helpful

We did discover a small beach on the river on our 3rd day - the water was extremely cold, and at the beach small, but it was a nice place to relax.

Canyon Gateway RV Park, Williams, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 2 nights, and took this park based on these reviews and the website. We were disappointed. As said in other reviews, the park has many, many old, dilapidated campers. That alone shouldn't be a problem, but so many of them had so much stuff around them... junk! And the red dust was bad.. it rained while we were there, and red dirt was everywhere. When we arrived, I jokingly said that I was not happy with the weather, as we had left sunny Mesa a few hours prior, and it was sleeting there! She said - without missing a beat..." no refunds"! Our satellite worked, and the truck stop and train noises did not bother us. We camped at Canyon Gateway RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Williams is a typical tourist town, with some different shops, due to its Route 66 fame. Kind of pricey, but what tourist area isn't? Dairy Queen was great, and the Safeway store was not outrageous.
