Fort Stockton RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Formerly a KOA, this medium size park is now privately run with a mix of pull through and back in rv spaces and tent camping area. All sites are FHU with cable and picnic table. Sites themselves are comprised of gravel/dirt but are narrow and not exactly level. Large, grassy sitting area next to each site was a nice touch, although it was mostly weeds. We stayed in site 2, a 65' pull through site. Interior roads are also gravel but not very wide. Park has nice amenities such as a swimming pool (seasonal), onsite restaurant, large fenced dog park and playground. Propane is also available onsite. Laundry area consisted of 8 washers and 8 dryers which worked great. Women's bathroom had two private toilet/shower combinations and one private toilet. Men's bathroom was much nicer and updated. Utilities worked well and Verizon signal was very good. Free wifi but we didn't use. Park is located near the highway so there is road noise, which is more noticeable in sites at the rear of the park. This is a very popular stopover park and was at or near capacity during our stay, so reservations are advised. We enjoyed our stay and would return. We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Smaller park with 30 amp and 50 amp rv spaces, tent camping spaces and camping cabins. This used to be a KOA but is now privately owned. We stayed in site G6, a very long pull through (110') which was nicely level. The entire park is comprised of hard packed dirt/gravel and is open with limited shade. It gets windy here, and the dust can really kick up. All sites are FHU with cable and a few sites have a picnic table (ours didn't). Park is easy to get in/out of and is close to the highway but with minimal traffic noise. There is a nearby train, but the horns were nominal. They have decent amenities on site such as a pool (open May through September), laundry area, horseshoes, playground, fishing pond, dog park, propane service and even a café that serves breakfast and dinner. Office has decent selection of snacks, drinks and rv supplies. Bathrooms consisted of three showers and three toilets per gender and were cleaned daily. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was very good. Free wifi but we didn't use. Park is a good choice for a convenient overnight stop and we would stay again. We camped at Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Little Vineyard RV Park & Resort, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Medium size park with 30 and 50 amp rv sites and a dozen or so mobile homes. Entire park is comprised of hard packed gravel. Sites are FHU with cable and picnic table, mostly pull throughs which are quite level and easy to get in/out of. Interior roads are wide and easy to navigate. Park has nice amenities which include an indoor pool and hot tub, billiard room, clubhouse, library, and clean bathrooms. Laundry area is large with 6 washers and 6 dryers. Propane available on site. Park has a few trees but is mostly open with no shade or landscaping. Office has decent selection of snacks, drinks and rv supplies. Park is quiet and easy to access from I-10. Freeway noise was minimal. They also have planned activities. Utilities worked well and were conveniently placed. Verizon signal was fair to good. Friendly staff. They have free wifi but we didn't use. It was very windy during our stay, but that's common in New Mexico. Overall, a good place to stay and a very convenient stopover. We camped at Little Vineyard RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mission View RV Park (55+ park), Tucson, Arizona

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

This is a large 55+ mobile home park with a separate rv section comprised of roughly 100 FHU back-in spaces. The park is older, and the photos on the website must have been taken years ago, as the facilities appear tired and in need of maintenance. Sites are gravel with concrete sitting area and asphalt parking space but are at 90 degree angles to the road. Interior roads are paved, wide and easy to maneuver. We stayed in site 322 and had to park the rig as close to the street as possible in order to get level (site has a large dip at the rear). They have a large indoor pool and hot tub, clubhouse, craft room, shuffleboard and fitness equipment (oddly placed next to the pool). Park has many planned activities such as water aerobics, weekly dinners, crafts and get togethers. Utilities worked well and Verizon signal was good. Free Wifi but we didn't use. No cable, but we were able to get plenty of OTA channels. On-site propane delivery available. There are two private unisex bathroom/shower combinations that can be accessed 24/7 with a code. There are two additional men/women's toilets near the office and two more inside the clubhouse, however, these are locked at night. They were cleaned daily but all are very small and dated. Laundry room consisted of two washers and two dryers. Another building with bathrooms and second laundry area located in the rv section. The park is not in the best part of town and is not gated, but there is a security guard at the entrance at night and police make regular patrols through the park. We never had any problems during our stay. Noise from the fighter jets taking off from the nearby military base is formidable and begins at dawn. Be aware there are no refunds given and they accept cash or checks only. Daily rate is for monthly stay plus electricity. Overall, we had a good stay but would not return due to the noise. We camped at Mission View RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Large, gated park with roughly 400 pull through and back-in RV sites, 8 deluxe casita style cabins and 4 deluxe tent spaces. Sites are gravel, FHU including cable, with concrete patio and table/chairs, and asphalt parking space. There are sites with a small grass area, covered sites under solar structures, sites with fireplaces and pet friendly sites (see photos). Sites are 45 degree angles but narrow, and backing in can be tricky to avoid the power post. Decent site separation but zero privacy between neighbors. Wide, paved roads in the park that were easy to maneuver. The park has lemon, orange and grapefruit trees, and you can pick as many as you want. We stayed in site 1610, a back-in space which was mostly level. Lots of amenities here including two heated pools, 2 small hot tubs, 2 laundry areas, pickleball courts, putting greens, horseshoes, playground, several dog parks, dog wash stations, pond and a BBQ restaurant. Store on site sells gifts, snacks, ice cream and rv supplies. Bathroom/shower area near us had three toilets and three showers per gender, and although dated were clean. Daily curbside trash pickup and you can check out a bin for recycling. Utilities worked well, and Verizon signal was very good. Cable was snowy and maintenance looked at it and said it wasn't a problem on their end however, all our neighbors had the same issue. Be aware this park has near constant noise from planes, trains, automobiles and barking dogs. On two occasions we had to call about excessive noise after quiet hours. No age limit on RV's and no restrictions on number of dogs or breeds here. Rate is based on monthly stay including electric. Be sure to ask for and look at a full receipt at checkout, because my receipt showed an additional charge to my credit card that I did not authorize (they did reimburse my card though). Overall, we had a good stay but not sure we would return. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

They sell propane on site for $3.89 per gallon. We went to Arizona Propane (close by) and paid $2.14 per gallon. The BBQ restaurant was decent but a tad pricey. There are several casinos in the area. Walmart grocery is 2 miles away and Walmart Supercenter is about 6 miles from the park.

The Palms RV Resort, Yuma, Arizona

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

A very large 55+ gated park in a great location to explore Yuma. There are 453 lots, which are a mix of small, very attractive casita style homes and back-in rv spaces (no pull throughs). Sites are FHU with cable, gravel and spacious with a large concrete sitting area but no picnic table. Check-in was a breeze, with information packet provided (complete with key cards for gate/common areas and mailbox key) and escort to your site. We stayed in site 313, a corner site which had open space on one side and behind us, making it feel more private. Our site was positioned so that the rig gave us shade all afternoon (sites across from us had full sun), so keep that in mind and refer to the park map when booking. Some sites have obstacles such as power posts and/or light posts at the front making backing in a challenge. Nice desert landscaping with a few trees, but the park is mostly open with no shade. Wonderful amenities including two pools, two hot tubs, putting green, shuffleboard area, pickleball courts, library, fitness room, large billiard room, several dog parks, outdoor bar and even a small restaurant that delivers to your site! Tons of planned activities, including live bands/concerts, pool parties, chef prepared dinners, etc. Eight private unisex toilet/shower suites which were large and cleaned daily, with additional bathrooms/showers next to the main building (but all might require a bike ride to get to depending on where your site is located). Trash pickup at site twice per week. Internet provided but we didn't use. Utilities worked well, and Verizon signal was very strong. Intermittent noise from the nearby military base, a train (but no horns), and construction noise. Friendly staff and regular patrols by security. Price reflects buy one month get one free deal for new guests, plus electricity. This was the nicest resort we have stayed at and can't wait to return! We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Indian Waters RV Resort & Cottages, Indio, California

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Large, well-maintained park with 252 FHU RV spaces and 8 cottages. Most RV sites are back-ins, but there are 15 pull throughs. Sites are grass or gravel with side by side concrete pads for your rig and tow vehicle and a sitting area in between (pull through sites don't have a separate tow vehicle pad). Perimeter sites back up to a residential neighborhood and can be noisy (i.e. loud music, barking dogs, etc). We stayed in site 251, an interior premium gravel site with a level concrete pad. Several types of sites are available at this park (see photos), which vary in pricing. Interior roads are paved, wide and easy to navigate. No picnic tables or fire rings provided. Gated entrance/exit, and check-in packet was waiting for us outside the gate when we arrived at noon. The office was only open from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and closed on Sunday, but I believe they have expanded hours during peak season. No store, but the office sells hats, t-shirts, ice, drinks and ice cream. There is a large building on one side of the park with showers, restrooms and laundry (8 washers and 6 dryers) which was cleaned daily. The park also has 8 newly remodeled private shower/toilet combinations near the office as well as another laundry area. There are small trees on the property, but the park is mostly open with no shade. Park has great amenities including two large pools, two large hot tubs (one not working, staff said someone stole the heater), several dog parks, clubhouse, billiard room, fitness center, horseshoes, pickleball courts and large outdoor seating area with fire pits. The park is next to an ambulance/fire/police station next door, so there are sirens going off intermittently. Expect occasional noise from a nearby train. Daily trash pick-up at your site. Utilities worked well but were placed at the rear of the site. No cable provided, but plenty of OTA channels. Verizon service was very good. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would return. We camped at Indian Waters RV Resort & Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

Rancho Jurupa Park, Riverside, California

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Large park with two separate camping loops. Lakeside loop is older (and slightly cheaper), with sites very close together on a dirt/gravel surface with tight, bumpy gravel interior roads. This loop is a mix of back-in and pull through (all "buddy" type) RV sites and tent camping sites. Cottonwood loop is for RVs only and spacious with FHU concrete sites and wide, paved interior roads that are easy to navigate (and is the best loop for big rigs). Sites here are a mix of back-in, pull through and pull ins. We stayed in site 216, a back-in which was VERY long and level. Park entrance is gated with code provided for after-hours access. Different code given for restrooms and laundry area. Newer bathhouse had two private handicapped bathrooms with toilet and shower (one out of order), a separate toilet area for each gender, and a separate shower area for each gender. All were cleaned daily. Laundry area had 5 washers and dryers ($1.00 per wash/dry) but required non-refundable tokens to use due to prior vandalism (and the park advises to keep everything locked up due to theft in the area). Park has a small splash pad (open Easter through Labor Day), 2 playgrounds, mini golf ($5 per person and the nicest we've ever seen), plus two stocked fishing lakes. Verizon service was good. No cable provided and only a handful of over the air channels. Park has a well-stocked store with gifts, snacks, ice, RV supplies and beer. They allow you to wash your RV at your site. Park does not allow mail/packages to be delivered. There are LOTS of ants here, so come prepared with spray and keep an eye on your jacks. Some noise from the nearby local airport and a train, but not bad. Free wifi offered but we didn't use. No restrictions on age of RVs here. No propane sold on site. Staff were friendly and made regular patrols through the campground. We loved this park and wouldn't hesitate to stay again! We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We purchased propane at a U-Haul dealer about 4 miles away, but the price was $3.42 per gallon. We also spent an afternoon at the San Manuel casino (which is HUGE!), about 30 minutes away.

Wine Country RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful, well maintained park with about two dozen very nice park models for rent, and roughly 175 RV sites (all FHU with cable) with back-in, pull through and pull in sites. Sites vary widely, so look at the park map before booking. Economy sites back up to Highway 46, so expect road noise. Most of the pull throughs have a "buddy" site configuration with rigs parked end to end. Sites 58 through 91 back up to the wine vineyard next door, but they are on a fairly steep hill. Sites 151-156 and 10-11 are on a cliff. Standard and economy sites are dirt, while premium and deluxe sites are concrete. All sites are very close together, so there isn't much privacy and slides impede on your neighbor's sitting area. We stayed in site 23, a deluxe back-in site that was level but short, leaving us little room to park our tow dually. Interior roads are paved but narrow, so you may encounter difficulty getting in/out of your space trying to dodge parked vehicles (we had to move our truck several times). The amenities are fabulous...a pool, two hot tubs (one adult only), outdoor bar with free wine tasting on Fridays, stage area with live music, two clubhouses, dog run, playground and nice arcade area for the kids. Weekends are busy, but the park quiets down during the week. Utilities worked well but are placed in the back of the sites. Two large bathhouses with 4 toilets and 3 showers each, which were kept reasonably clean. Verizon service was very good. Free wifi but we didn't use. The park is next to an airport so there is intermittent airplane noise. Staff were friendly and helpful. Also, the park is conveniently located across the street (and within walking distance) to a water park. We enjoyed our stay and would return. Daily rate reflects 20% off for first time guests. We camped at Wine Country RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Hearst Castle is an hour's drive from the park. If you buy tickets online, they charge $8 extra per person, per tour. We opted to buy tickets at the Castle instead and had no issues getting the tours/times we wanted, but we also went mid-morning on a Monday. There are many, many wineries in the area with either free or 2 for 1 tastings. The park also has a shuttle for $50 per person that stops at 3-4 different wineries.

Lemon Cove Village RV Park, Lemon Cove, California

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

Small, rustic park with a mix of 30/50 amp FHU back-in/pull through sites and 5 RV sites with no hookups on one side of the park and tent camping sites on the other. Interior roads are gravel and easy to navigate, although trees could use a good trimming. Sites have decent separation, are gravel and wide but vary in levelness, so you may need leveling blocks. The park is very dusty and dry, and the only areas with green grass are the dog park and office area. Nice pool on opposite side of the park. Bathrooms were older and reasonably clean, with 3 toilets and 3 showers per gender. Laundry area on site with 3 washers and dryers (1 out of order during our stay). Office area is decent with small selection of gifts, snacks, ice and RV supplies. The office, laundry and bathrooms are located on a hill which may pose a problem for those that cannot navigate stairs or an incline. There is a port-a-potty in the RV section however. I agree with previous reviewer's posts regarding electrical issues, as six sites including our own (we were in site 10) lost power on Sunday. Maintenance reset the main breaker within 30 minutes, but voltage was low (113 volts in our rig). However, we had no issues before or after this incident and we were there a whole week. Staff were friendly and helpful. Park was very quiet during our stay even over Labor Day weekend and the park was nearly full. No cable available and we were only able to pull in 8 OTA channels. Good Verizon service. Free wifi provided but we didn't use. Park does not enforce their rule about dogs being on a leash. Daily rate is with Good Sam discount, but still expensive for what you get. Overall, a good park to use as a base for exploring Sequoia National Park. We camped at Lemon Cove Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Lakes RV & Golf Resort, Chowchilla, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Medium size park with 87 FHU sites (cable included) which are a mix of back-ins and pull throughs as well as a storage area for rv's. Interior roads are paved and easy to navigate. Sites are all concrete but quite narrow, with a small concrete patio. There are some sites with broken/uneven concrete especially in the pull through sites. Most sites do not have a picnic table. Sites 1 through 10 and 51 through 56 back up to Robertson road, so there is significant road noise. The remainder of the sites on the perimeter backup to a residential neighborhood. We stayed in site 6, a back-in site which was mostly level, but short so we had to strategically park our tow dually sideways to fit (see photos). The park has nice landscaping, but around the sites what's left of the grass is brown and dead. There are sprinkler heads all around, but some are broken and/or not functioning (the site next to us had standing water from some sort of leak). Water pressure was on the low side at 40 psi. We were told at check-in to fill our fresh water tank because the park loses water pressure during peak times (we had no issues, but the park wasn't full). Small but maintained pool and spa, and they have set hours for adults only which we appreciate. There is a nice lake next to the pool area where you can fish although it is catch and release only. The park is gated, and they give you a remote to operate it. The park also gives a key card to access the bathrooms and laundry area. Bathroom/shower area was clean and well appointed. Laundry area consisted of three washers and dryers. Utilities worked well but are placed toward the rear of the sites (sewer took 3 hoses to reach). Good Verizon signal. Daily garbage pickup at your site. The park offers two free rounds of golf daily in the price, but for those that don't golf, you can get a 10% Good Sam discount instead. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Durango RV Resort, Red Bluff, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park consisting of 172 FHU RV spaces with cable and picnic table. Sites are a mix of back-in and pull throughs, nicely situated with pretty landscaping all around. Interior roads are asphalt and easy to navigate. Sites are all concrete and wide, with grass in between. Some sites have a view of the Sacramento river, but there is no direct river access. We stayed in site 141, a long, mostly level pull through site which was spacious enough for our 40' fifth wheel and tow dually. This park has a large pool, hot tub, several outdoor gas firepits, horseshoes, basketball court, putting greens, exercise room and they even have massage services! Nice office with small selection of gifts, snacks, ice and rv supplies. Restrooms were well kept and cleaned daily. Two laundry areas on site. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was good. Daily garbage pick-up at your site. The park is located close to I-5 so there is quite a bit of road noise. You will also hear the horns from a nearby train during the night which can be very loud! There is a walking trail that leads out of the park (the only area not gated), but there is a homeless encampment there so be aware. However, the park is patrolled regularly. We enjoyed our stay and would most definitely return. We camped at Durango RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of smoke from the nearby Carr fire and our vehicle/trailer was covered in ash. Go to the Sugar Shack café on Main street. Their breakfast plates are HUGE and delicious!

McCloud RV Resort, McCloud, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Pretty park with a mix of back-in, pull through, cabins and tent sites. RV sites are 50 amp and 30 amp with FHU and cable, and some 30 amp sites with water/electric only. All sites are extremely close together. Most sites are on grass without markings making site perimeter unclear. Some of the smaller sites have concrete pads. Site 79 is the only gravel site. There are a few sites that can be challenging to back into due to trees. Ask to see your site before paying, as there are no refunds given. Also, the park charges $5 for early check-in, so be aware of that. Interior roads are paved. Grass sites are watered as soon as someone leaves which makes for a wet, muddy mess for the next camper that arrives (and no mats or rugs are allowed on the grass). We stayed in site 78, a long, grassy, semi-level back-in site close to the office. Trees at the back of our site gave us plenty of shade all afternoon. Our neighbor's awning was inches from our slide outs, which was too close for comfort for us. Lots of tall trees and greenery, but no amenities here. No store on site, but they do sell ice. Dump station, garbage area, laundry area and bathrooms are all located in a central building. Bathrooms were rustic (and could use an update) with two toilets and two showers per gender. Husband said one of the toilets leaked water all over the floor. Laundry area had 4 washers and 6 dryers (1 out of order), with change machine and soap/softener vending machine. The ponds in the park were overgrown with weeds and stagnant. A narrow babbling brook runs through the property. This park has a dog curfew (they must be inside your camper from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.). Highway 89 runs next to the park, so there is quite a bit of road noise. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was good. Free wifi offered but we didn't use. Rate includes Good Sam discount, taxes and fees. Overall, a decent park but I doubt we would stay again. We camped at McCloud RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Upper, middle and lower falls are a 10 minute drive from the park. Burney Falls is 40 miles away which is quite spectacular. Small grocery store and Chevron station just outside of the park. Pizza and local brews sold at the big red barn at the front of the park. Get the Mount Shasta pizza which has everything on it....best pizza we have ever eaten!

Waterwheel RV Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Small campground with 33 rv spaces, which are a mix of pull throughs and back-ins. The majority of the sites are 30 amps, but there are 9 sites with 50 amp service. There are only 10 sites that are FHU. We stayed in site 1, a 50 amp water/electric site (no sewer) that faced the river. Our site wasn't very level, but doable. Interior roads are gravel and a bit tight for big rigs. Sites are also gravel, but very narrow and very close together. Quite a few trees which really need a good trimming. The campground has a strange configuration which is not the most user friendly. Be careful when following the "enter" sign around the curve to the office, as you will have to swing wide enough to turn in FRONT of the office to get into the campground. Look at the map on their website before arriving. Nice log cabin office with very little necessities (ice cream, dish soap, toothpaste, etc. but most of the shelves were empty). Bathrooms are newer and beautifully done, consisting of two toilets and two showers per gender. Laundry area also very nice with 2 washers and 2 dryers which worked well ($1.50 per wash and $1.00 per dry). Utilities worked well but water pressure was low at 35 psi. Zero OTA channels and no cable available. Verizon signal was excellent. Free wifi provided, but we didn't use. Some highway noise, but we didn't find it objectionable. The park is next to the Williamson river and they have their own boat launch. The river is quite shallow however, with lots of rocks so not ideal for swimming. Overall, we liked this park and would return. We camped at Waterwheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kla-mo-ya casino is ½ mile north of the park. We wanted to visit Crater Lake, but the smoke from the nearby fires made viewing impossible. Check out the webcam on the NPS website before going to check visibility.

Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Smaller campground with 60+ campsites which are a mix of FHU RV sites and tent sites tucked into two loops. We reserved site B10 and, although it was long enough, we could not maneuver into the site with our 40' fifth wheel and tow dually. Several trees at the front of our site and avoiding the connections of the pull through site across from us (connections were near the road) made backing into the site impossible. The trees also had low hanging branches which would have scratched our rig. This site is better suited for smaller rigs. We were unable to get a different site as the park was full, but the park ranger tried very hard to accommodate us. In the end, we were able to get a full refund which was much appreciated! The roads and sites are paved but very narrow so take care if you are in a big rig. Also, the road entering the park is quite jarring, so go slow. Sites are very close together. Dump station on site. As others mentioned, our site had a sewer connection bent at a 90 degree angle, so not sure how that would have worked since we never hooked up. LOTS of chipmunks/ground squirrels everywhere, and most campers had the hoods raised on their vehicles (I guess to deter them from getting in there?). This appears to be a nice park, but we won't book here again as it is just too challenging for a rig our size. We camped at Collier Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Kla-mo-ya casino is less than 8 miles south of the park (and they allow dry camping there for up to 7 days). We were able to get a spot at Waterwheel RV park which was another ½ mile down 97 from the casino.
