Spruce Park on the River, Kalispell, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park right on the river. There is access to the river and the mountains in the distance are beautiful. We were originally a bit turned off by the "NO" signs everywhere - especially "the no dogs on the grass" signs. But they have a big field out front that is dog friendly and we enjoyed playing with our dog out there. There was a warning in the paperwork about a $100 fine if your dog went to the bathroom in the grass. Other dog owners obviously didn't read this paperwork because two different RVs had loose dogs several times a day and those dogs peed and pooped in our yard! At one point I had a damp sweater hanging out to dry and a little dog ran over to pee on it! We yelled and chased him off before he marked the sweater thankfully. We saw other dog owners with leashes walking their dogs in the "no dogs on grass" area, too. I can see why they have the rules but it sucks being the only one that seems to follow them. The bathrooms were clean. The laundry room was clean. The staff was nice. We couldn't get the internet to work at all and we tried several times. We just used our ATT and Verizon phones to hotspot. We drove to Glacier and it was an easy drive. We also drove to Whitefish. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Travel Trailer.

Kahnderosa River Campground, Cataldo, Idaho

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

This is a simple little campground on the creek. The staff is very nice. There is no Wifi. Our AT&T and Verizon signals were weak but we could check maps and plan our travel. There is a little bit of highway noise but it isn't bad. You are right by the bike trail. I loved the big open field for walking our dog. We didn't realize when we pulled in that not many sites were full hookups. We were just there for one night so we dumped as we left the next morning. As others have mentioned, the power is low. I didn't realize it because we didn't need to run our AC. But when I microwaved my breakfast I set it for 30 seconds like I do every morning. It was ice cold. Then I added another 30 seconds and it was ice cold. Normally one round of 30 seconds is super hot! So I don't think there was enough power to run the microwave. The bathrooms were in a permanent trailer and they were nice and clean. The only odd thing - I went to go to the bathroom for the first time and the door was locked. I stood outside for about 8 minutes thinking someone was probably taking a shower. Finally, the door opened and was left open about a foot but no one came out. I hesitated to open it more and see if I could go inside, too, or if the person was airing it out or what. I looked inside and there were two toilets, two sinks and two showers! So why this other camper locked me out I have no idea!!! If they add wifi and work on the electric situation I would definitely stay here again for a longer vacation - we just overnighted on our way to Glacier. We camped at Kahnderosa River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Pleasant RV Park, Bothell, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We had a cruise booked during the time we would be RVing in the Pacific Northwest. We happened to meet another RVer in Idaho that had just come back from a cruise and I asked where they parked their RV. They told us about Lake Pleasant and we are so thankful! I thought we would have to pay for a campsite somewhere. Instead, Lake Pleasant has cruise storage for just $10 a day and they let you plug in to 20A power to keep your fridge running on power. We booked about 45 days out and added a camping night on each end of the storage figuring we could add more dates when we got closer to Seattle. You have been warned: All of the RV parks in Seattle are full of people that live there. Giant 5th wheels with tiny cars and Lake Pleasant has a lot of this. But they at least have plenty of tourist spaces, too. And another warning: Lake Pleasant fills up. By the time we called to add more dates to our stay, they were completely booked on both ends. The campground is quiet. The bathrooms are clean. The Wifi works. The staff is very nice. The laundry room is clean and affordable. Now that we know better, we will stay here again and make our reservation WAY in advance! We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you have a dog, make the drive to Warren G. Magnuson Park. Their off leash area is the best in the US with long and wide fenced walking paths and another fenced in swimming area. And go during weekday lunch hour when the NOAA gate is unlocked and go sit in the beautiful sound garden!

Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort, Suquamish, Washington

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

This is a small RV area at the far end of the parking lot behind the parking garage. The sites seem like they were an afterthought since they are not level but we just used our leveling blocks on one side and put the tongue on our travel trailer very low. Some of the big motorhomes had wheels off the ground in the back and they looked funny but they were level. We saw a lot of rabbits on the other side of the fence and we also saw a mama raccoon with two babies. The internet was really fast. There isn't a bathhouse or a laundry room. Be sure and walk down along the back of the property past the ballrooms. There is a beautiful resort area down past the spa with comfortable chairs, loungers, beautiful landscaping and shade umbrellas and it is dog friendly. There is a small dog park. There is an indoor pool and outdoor hot tub for a $5 fee per person. The bridge to Bainbridge is being painted and the construction noise at night was quite loud. We loved the 80s concert inside the Casino bar Saturday night and we really enjoyed the Tina Turner and Rod Stewart impersonator duo concert on the lawn. Bring a chair for these free weekly outdoor concerts and they sell drinks and great food there, too! We camped at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Little Creek Casino and Resort, Shelton, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice campground for a casino parking lot. There is grass between all of the sites. The outside loop sites are all back-in and three sides of that are all small back-in sites. We have a 23' travel trailer and we didn't have enough room to keep our car parked in front. One side of back-in sites were long with large motorhomes. Then the middle is all pull throughs. They are big enough for motorhomes and 5th wheels but not big enough for toads and trucks. We witnessed a lot of really bad drivers trying to pull into their spots and they were just crushing the beautiful grass and sprinkler heads. I can see why people complain that they can't maneuver around this park - when people insist on keeping their toads and tow vehicles near their sites they stick out into the road and make things very difficult. Security is constantly walking around and asking you to move your trucks/toads to the parking lot. The internet was really fast. The bathrooms were really nice and clean. The laundry was clean and had great prices - 75 cents to wash and 75 cents to dry. The park is very quiet at night - you might hear an occasional train in the distance or a logging truck but it didn't wake us up. Yes, you have to check in at the hotel and then go drive to your site. We parked right in front of the hotel's side door near the check in desk and then moved once we checked in. It was simple. There appears to be a boondock gravel lot on the far end of the property just past the RV sites. It was pretty crowded, too. We camped at Little Creek Casino and Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rendezvous Beach Bear Lake State Park, Garden City, Utah

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

We pulled up without a reservation and we were able to get a spot right next to the waterfront sites. We could still clearly see the lake with its beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The beach is just a few steps from most campsites. There is a large public use area not far from the campground at the far end of the beach with paddleboards, kayaks and other water toys for rent. If you have a dog, drive up the west side of the lake and you will see beach pull off spots. Those are dog friendly! Be sure to drive up to Garden City and get a raspberry shake at one of the many snack bar style restaurants. We camped at Rendezvous Beach Bear Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Outlaw Trail RV Park, Jensen, Utah

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

We picked this park because we wanted to visit Dinosaur National Monument. The front of the park is a large green lawn for tent camping and there is a playground and room to run your dog. The woman running the park is working hard to make everything look nice and it shows - the grass is lush and green, the bathrooms are clean and the laundry room is clean. The RV parking area is all gravel and our site was level. If the park gets full, I imagine it would feel tight. But we had a space between us and our neighbor and it was comfortable. The Wifi was hit or miss. I was able to pick up some data during the day but after 6pm is slowed to a stop and I couldn't get on at all (probably too many connections). Be sure to drive the road to the east in Dinosaur, Colorado - it is a beautiful drive with many overlooks. We drove it at sunrise and it was beautiful! We camped at Outlaw Trail RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cape Kiwanda RV Resort, Pacific City, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is in a great location - you walk right across the street to the beach. You watch the Dory boats come and go, find starfish in the tide pools and you can drive your car on the beach. This beach has really soft sand and a tow truck was hanging around waiting. Just north of town, there is a more private beach to drive onto and we enjoyed going there and playing with our dog. The sites are close but you don't feel squished. The sites are asphalt and there is grass between each site. You will see lots of rabbits running around on the grass and under RVs. We had a problem with our cable hookup and the guy that worked there was quick to check it out and make an adaptor for us (turns out our cable was cheap and had poor threading). The laundry room and bathrooms are clean. I took one shower and didn't have hot water - it was barely warm. I'm not sure if I just missed a crowd that used it all up but I didn't want to take a chance on a cool shower again. There is no Verizon at all and very little AT&T cell service. The internet was VERY spotty so don't count on it. I wish they had dog stations or at least a small garbage can every now and then around the park for dog waste. The coffee shop out front has pretty good internet and great coffee and pastries! We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tillamook Coast RV Park (formerly Tillamook River RV Park), Tillamook, Oregon

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

This campground is under new ownership. They were able to put us next to our friends for our 5 day stay. Our site was in the back of the loop and our friends had a nice big pie-shaped site which was perfect since they have a large motorhome and slides. All of the sites back up to a nice big grassy area where you can walk behind the RVs. The sites are all gravel and each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Sites only have 30amp. The bathrooms are clean. We didn't use the shower but noticed there was a quarter machine for it. There is Wifi at the office. We couldn't pick it up since we were in the back of the loop so I'm not sure how fast it was. There is a large tent camping area in the front of the park. It was packed during our stay (4th of July). Everyone got quiet at night and we didn't hear any noise at all. There are lots of wildflowers planted around the bathroom. The whole park is surrounded by really tall grass along the water's edge so you can't see the water but the grass is really pretty. We wish the sites had sewer hookups but it is in a flood-prone area so we just borrowed the honey wagon once for our gray tank and dumped both the grey and black at the end of our stay. The check-in paperwork said there was a fee for someone to dump for you (assuming with the wagon) and it said you needed to sign up for a dump time and pay to use the dump station. We have a tiny trailer with tiny tanks and we knew we would need to dump by the end of our stay. But when I checked up front, they said we could use it because we were there for a longer stay. So you might need to pay to use the dump station if you are only there for one night. We camped at Tillamook Coast RV Park (formerly Tillamook River RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Sea and Sand RV Park, Depoe Bay, Oregon

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

There are three stadium-style rows of oceanfront sites and some along the side that also have a view of the ocean. We were in a site leading up to those rows and it was a nice and quiet little nook. The sites are gravel and level. The bathrooms are clean. We loved the path down to the beach and walking along the beach with our dog. We loved that the bathroom up at the top near the oceanfront sites had an outdoor foot rinse area for getting the sand off your feet. The Tengo internet doesn't work at all. We even submitted a support ticket to let Tengo know and they said the park only pays for 7mbps download max. But we couldn't get it to get anything for our entire stay. So we used our ATT and Verizon phones as hot spots for internet. The laundry room was large and clean. The oceanfront sites have tight turns and you do need to park your car over by the bathroom. Most oceanfront sites don't have room for both RVs and cars. We camped at Sea and Sand RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort, Sisters, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is beautiful with green grass, tall trees and wildflowers everywhere. Our asphalt site was level and there is a little patio made of brick pavers and lots of grass between sites. There are signs everywhere saying you can't let your dog walk on the grass so I felt like we were running him to the dog area hoping he wouldn't need to pee on the way there. Even the area you walk across to get to the dog path has signs saying no dogs on the grass so you feel like you can't even get to the path. But there is a nice dog path and dog waste stations around the front of the park. And there is a nice fenced in dog run area. The internet was pretty slow - I could sometimes check email but usually it couldn't even do that so I hot spotted with my ATT phone. The pool area is really nice and the laundry room was clean. My only complaint is campers and children were constantly walking and riding their bikes across our site. The kids would tear through on the little bit of asphalt between our stairs and the patio and it was annoying. And then adults and kids were always walking across the grass on our site instead of walking around and staying on the road. We camped at Bend / Sisters Garden RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

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

This campground is pretty. The sites in the front have large lots with manicured grass between each site and nice tall trees for shade. The sites in the new section in the back have young trees so there isn't any shade and they have gravel between the sites instead of grass. The pool and hot tub are nice. There is a nice big grassy fenced dog park. I loved the rose garden up at the front entrance. The only thing is the internet was awful. It was Tengo, and when we logged in, it says "this location has a fixed data speed of 6Mbps down and 1.5 Mbps up." but we were seeing speeds closer to .22 down and .26 up. It couldn't even get our email so we gave up and used our cell phones as hot spots. It is too bad - if this campground had fast internet I would love to stay here for a while. The campground is pretty and there is a Walmart right across the street. The bathrooms were really big and clean individual rooms with a toilet and shower all in one room. The laundry room was big and clean, too. We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Meadows RV Park, Ketchum, Idaho

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

The thing we loved about this campground was the location. It is close to Sun Valley and right behind the campground is the Wood River Trail. We loved walking our dog on the trail and we rode our bikes all over - down to Hailey, into Ketchum and up to Elkhorn. The campground is simple and the sites are tight. Two RVs share the same utilities so you are back to back with one RV and face to face with another. We ended up in a site where someone was always back to back with us but no one booked the site across from us so we felt like we had plenty of room. If the campground is full, it will feel tight. And if you are traveling with someone, it will be nice to share a buddy site together. Our site had a tree and some shade so that was nice. There is grass between each site. The woman running the park is really nice and she is always running around taking care of things - hanging plants, watering grass, checking people in, etc. She is doing a great job! The bathrooms are super clean and smell great. The showers were good and hot. The laundry room is down the road near the permanent trailer section and it was clean. We were disappointed in the internet - we couldn't get it to work for the most part. We hot spotted with our ATT and Verizon phones. We camped at The Meadows RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a gem of a park! The sites are gravel and surrounded by manicured grass. The nearby park is beautiful with a path that walks through gardens and along the river. We were happily surprised they had Wifi but it was very, very slow. It was enough for email but you couldn't watch a movie using it. There is a cheese store across the street - the cheese curds were delicious and so was the horseradish cheddar. It was a short drive into town for the laundromat. The bathrooms were very clean. The shower section is an additional door locked with a code for RV guests only. The showers were roomy and the water was hot! We camped at Heyburn Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We've stayed here before so we were excited to come back again. We were in a back in site this time and it felt very private and quiet. We love the indoor pool and the hot tubs. We love walking around the property with our dog. We love all of the people we meet at Tiger Run each year. It is an easy trip up to Breckenridge or down to Frisco for shopping. The internet wasn't as fast this year - at times it didn't work at all. That was frustrating. We camped at Tiger Run RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
