Waterwheel RV Park, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Easy check-in in this quaint little RV park right off OR 97 on the Williamson River. We were directed to our pull through spot 24 with water and electric. We had to disconnect and park in the little field across from our trailer, which was not a big deal. The spot we had was 30 AMP, but there were 50 AMP spots in the middle and on the river rows. We had to adjust our rig to clear trees so we could get our slides out. There was not a lot of spacing between sites. Although we had a fire ring, we didn't use it for fear of catching the Class A in the next spot on fire - they were pretty close. There was plenty of areas to walk the dogs, to include a large grass area on one side of the campground and a little island area on the river side of the campground. There was also a nice grass area out front of the office with a small playground. Verizon cell, cable, and the WIFI all worked well. Waterwheel is a well kept campground with 32 RV sites plus a private island connected by a small walking bridge across the river for tent campers. If we were tent campers this would definitely be a great place to camp. We would stay here again, but would definitely book in advance to get a river row site with 50 AMPs. We camped at Waterwheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bordertown Casino RV Resort, Reno, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Prior to arrival, we experienced great communication with the this park to let us know they wanted us to park outside the park so we could make a sharp right turn into the park to get to site 46. There was a large parking area behind the casino and gas station so parking right outside the park was very easy. The site was a pull though on the back row with FHUs with well placed utilities. We were here for one night and the cable and WIFI worked great. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Bordertown Casino RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

You receive coupons for the casino adjacent to the park. The carry out counter and sit down restaurant seemed popular though we did not try either. However, we did receive coupons that included a free drink at the bar. The ice-cold draft beer was worth checking out the casino.

Tonopah RV, Tonopah, Nevada

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

Easy check in at this RV park right off NV 95. We stayed one night as we moved back north after a family emergency in Las Vegas. Surprisingly quiet at night considering how close the park is to the highway. We had pull through 16 with FHUs and cable. For your first night stay there was no discount. For your first night stay there was no discount. It was interesting on how they do their discounts as other reviews have stated, but we did not have a problem with the price for what we received. Though there weren't any shade trees (but we were in the desert and the evening was nice and cool) as this park was basically a parking lot. The amenities include cable and WIFI (both worked great) were easily assessable. They had five WIFI repeaters with separate stations for this small park that also has small hotel units as this park was originally set up for transient workers. We used their laundry facility that had 6 washers and 8 dryers (about half the dryers were out of order) that cost $1.75 to wash and $1.50 to dry. Great overnight stop and we would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Tonopah RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

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

There are several parking slots as you come through a security gate into this resort, so that you can go check-in at the front desk similar to a hotel. Check in was a long involved process; although there were four ladies, they kept walking away from the counter as soon as they finished with a customer making the wait time even longer. Once we got checked in, we headed unescorted (which was fine) to our premium pull through with FHUs site 436. Due to the discounts (booking on line, monthly promotions, etc.) we received several receipts and did an average to come up with the displayed price per night. But, be sure to watch your charges - we were called twice during our 11 night stay to be told they didn't charge us for one of the nights. Up front, we had diverted off our northern route for a family emergency and they did work with us when we had to extend our stay. We would not recommend coming here in Jul/Aug due to the heat. We had our dogs with us and due to the excessive heat, we could only walk our dogs early in the morning and later in the evening. They did have conveniently located dog areas with one having fenced dog runs where you go let your pet off leash to do their business. There are several RV washing services listed in their brochure so we had our 39' fifth wheel washed for $117. There were two pools, one for the adults and another for kids. In addition, there's an 18 hole putting course that we found fun. When you go to the office/restaurant/store area expect to be approached by a Good Sam rep to watch their RV membership presentation and receive three free nights. Due to our family emergency, the presentation happened to work out well as we needed three more nights. This RV travel club through Four Seasons might appeal to some with RPI memberships but for how we travel it did not appeal to us. We would definitely stay here again, if we visit Las Vegas when its cooler.
 Unless you like it hot - don't come here in July/August. We have three air conditioners and they could not keep our fifth wheel cool during the day. Temps in the shade were around 110 and in our fifth wheel it was around 85. We camped at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Orange Grove was a very nice fairgrounds RV park. We had called ahead since we were now heading for Las Vegas due to a family emergency, but were told no reservations needed. This fact held true as when we got there this large RV park did not have very many campers. After an easy check in, we were assigned pull through site 170 with no neighbors. Hook ups were convenient and there was some shade as this park was essentially in an orange grove. FHUs plus the cable worked well for this quick overnighter. We would definitely come back if in the area. We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Coyote Valley RV Resort, Morgan Hill, California

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

We were in back in site number 93, which was a Deluxe Site. Check in was easy then we were guided to our site, but tough back in with almost 90 degrees combined with the parking right in front of the site near the pool. They have a staff member backing you in and he finally got us in with quite a bit of maneuvering, but not lined up exactly, so we had to park across from our site. Utilities were at the back of the site. Sites were close but with shrubs and trees that provided some spacing between sites. The site was too narrow for a picnic table. Good Verizon cell reception with the campground WIFI and cable worked well. We came down to San Jose to visit friends and this RV park was the best option because it wasn't right in the city. The park was designed more for long term visitors than overnighters as we were fit into an empty space next to long termers. They had a small fenced off-leash dog area. There was also access to city hiking trails though a back gate. We experienced some road noise during the night but it was not intolerable. We were only there for two days and were overall satisfied with this very clean and well run park. We camped at Coyote Valley RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Golden Rule RV Park, Willits, California

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

Older but very nice RV park. Due to the construction on CA 101 South, missed the sign and the right turn to the RV park so had to go down to the next major exit. The road to the park was down hill and curvy but we had no issues getting our 39' fifth wheel to the park. Check in was quick and we proceeded down from the office to the RV portion of the park to pull through site 33. The upper office area was a regular mobile home park that seemed to be mostly retired folks with that part of the park well kept. The RV portion down the hill reminded us of a state park type setting in the trees. The pull throughs were mainly for overnighters where the back ins had more room and backed up to the woods. We had to maneuver some to get spacing from the trees to get our slides out. There was also a swimming pool in the RV section where we stayed. Due to being in a valley, we had to use our weBoost, which allowed us to be able to text using Verizon. Near the upper park office there was a very nice laundry room with internet access. We had FHUs with good water pressure but they only had 30 amp in this park, which was a weak 30 amp. We could only run one air conditioner (or major appliance) as we were warned by the office. Previously, we had been able to run 2 of our 3 air conditioners on 30 amp. Due to popping the breaker, we found that the circuit beaker was not in the post but in a large bunch of circuit breaker boxes located across from the pool and near the first pull through. We did not know this prior to arrival, but the park was part of the Ridgewood Ranch where the famous 1940s racehorse, Seabiscuit, retired and was later buried. You can walk to the national historic site if you take a left down the gravel road about a mile as you exit the park. Or you can drive following the sign as you enter the road from Hwy 101 that goes to the RV park. Overall, Golden Rule was a perfect two-day stop for us as we made our way south to Napa Valley. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sounds of the Sea RV Park, Trinidad, California

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

Check-in was easy and quick. We went to back-in spot 6 with FHUs where we backed in with a little difficulty due to the tight roads. Site 6 has a nice grass spread between it and site 7, which our friends stayed in. The yard area was very small and pretty much unusable for site 7, as they had a small trailer parked right outside their door. We did not have a fire pit but many of the larger spots such as 19-25 did have a fire pit. We were provided a TV cable box that was easy to connect and worked well. Our Verizon service was also adequate along with the WIFI being satisfactory. We were surprised how restricted CA was on walking dogs on state trails. The campground office had a pamphlet that outlined which beaches you could take your dog to and included leash restrictions. Dogs cannot be on the hiking trails but can go on any road a car can travel on. The other reviews on this park are pretty much accurate to include that we didn't hear any seals. Though a bit on the pricey side for what you get, this park was fine for our three nights stay to see the Redwoods. We camped at Sounds of the Sea RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We found that Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park on Cal-Barrel RD 1/4 mile past visitors center to the right had a decent area to walk dogs. This road was gravel and we had some but not a lot of car traffic go up the hill to the turn around. Beautiful three mile walk through the giant redwoods.

Robbins Nest RV Park, Bandon, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

After a thorough check in briefing we pulled into an easy straight pull through site (19) with FHUs. This was a small quiet campground right off of OR 101. There seemed to be mostly retired couples staying for the season and passing through. There were 20 sites with sites 1-8 back ins that have full timers or seasonal RVs with the rest of the sites being pull throughs. Since we were there for 2 weeks over 4th of July, the park was full. There are lots of rules for this CG so ensure you read them as the rules are enforced, especially the 5 MPH speed limit. The current owners have been here for four years and have made some upgrades to the park as it is well kept. We found it interesting that they brought us a cable box that fits into the electrical post and give you a remote to access the 84 channels, which worked great during our stay. We did experience some road noise off 101 but that was expected. Water pressure can run a little low but overall satisfactory. They had a small dog park type area. Overall, the Robbins Nest was a great base camp to enjoy all the activities that this part of the Southern Oregon Coast has to offer. We will definitely stay here again when we make it back to the area. We camped at Robbins Nest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Came in with two other campers as this CG seems to be a popular overnight destination. Due to an emergency with another camper, we were placed in a pull through (site 60) with our travel friends. Easy pull through with just water and electric which was fine since we were just spending the night. Nice campground with a lot of permanent party but plenty of temporary sits as well.. We were placed in the upper middle portion of the CG with some shade. We were far enough from the lower camp area that does not have much shade but would be good for satellite reception but there would be road noise from I 49. We did not get much road noise in our location. There was also a large grassy dog area. Above average overnight campground. We camped at Peculiar Park Place RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Crooked River Ranch RV Park, Crooked River Ranch, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $74.00
Overall Rating:

Easily checked in and proceeded to pull-thru site D14 for our 6 night visit. When we got there the people in 13 had pulled in the wrong direction, so if we pulled in the right way we would step out our door into their picnic table. We had friends in 14a, which is probably one of the best spots in the campground so we reversed our pull through direction where we faced their 5th wheel. This set up worked very well as we had a nice yard between us. After talking with others, we found out that a lot of campers pull-in the opposite direction so their back window faces the picturesque mountains. Glad we faced that direction as well. Looking at the campground as a whole, loop D, 5-14 are actually pull throughs but the map does not show that. There was a fire road that runs behind these sites that makes them pull throughs and quite easy to get into. Loop sites throughout this park vary greatly on space between sites, so your neighbors could be nearby to very close, none of the sites were spacious. We walked Matt's Trail that goes around the park. CRR does not provide a map of Matt's trail that includes an observatory over the canyon. This trail is hike at your own risk as it does go near the cliffs plus they state rattle snakes but we did not see any. Nice mile or so trail that works its way around the campground areas and some of the golf course. Be sure to keep your dogs on a leash due to the cliffs and possible critters.
 There were some interesting rules about where to place your picnic table on the very narrow sites i.e. place behind your rig. Our neighbors across the street had a 6:30 AM knock on the door from a staff member (prior to quiet hour expiration) waking them up to tell them to move their picnic table. We found this rude. CRR was a popular park with a lot of amenities to include a golf course. However, doubtful we would stay here again due to those things mentioned above and the price as there are plenty of other options in this area. We camped at Crooked River Ranch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Farewell Bend State Recreation Area, Huntington, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

No formal check in so we went straight to our site for our two nights stay. After readjusting a couple of times (angle was a little tight), backed into spot 104 in the far Catfish loop of the campground with water and electric but only 30 amp. Nice spacious sites in this loop but little shade compared to the other loops. We had great river and mountain views from our camp site. The front area loops were a little tighter site and road wise but have mature trees and shrubs between most of the sits. We used the dump station on the way out of the park with no issues. We utilized our weBoost as the Verizon signal here was very weak. weBoost gave us enough bars to get cell phones and MIFI working. The park staff was very helpful and kept the park clean. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Mtn. View RV (formerly Mtn. View Holiday Trav-L-Park), Baker City, Oregon

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

Well run campground with a neat western theme on its office, corresponding laundry and spa/shower building. Check in was easy to include being given a local paper tour/restaurant type information. We had pull through site 126 with FHUs, which was a little narrow but doable getting our 39' Vilano 5th wheel into place. Great water pressure (about 100 psi) so we needed our regulator. They had a dump station and also sold propane. There was fenced playground and swimming pool available as well. Out the back gate near our site was a large area to walk your dog complete with poop bags. WIFI was so-so/normal for this type of campground. The park is well off the interstate so there was no road noise, but we did notice trains off and on durning the day and night, but the noise was not too bad. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice RV resort/park. Check in was easy. The staff kind enough to move us to back-in site 37 with FHUs where we had a small park like setting that gave us more grass space. We were escorted to our site and escort helped back us in. The park was quiet with very little road noise. There was a good mix of seasonal and transient RVers. Compared to other public parks we have stayed in, the sites were generously large. There were two fenced dog off-leash areas and a large grass field where you can walk the dogs or practice disc golf. We stayed in a basic site for four nights, but there were premium sites with cement patios, larger picnic tables, and benches that we would try to get if we stayed here again. We camped at Columbia Sun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
