About Rollin Ollens

As of December 02,2017 we are now retired. We are now spending as much time as we can to see the country but not through glass. We will be taking our time moving from one destination to the next meeting as many people as possible and enjoying the sights to be seen.

Dick's RV Park, Great Falls, Montana

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

Signage is good. Easy access to the park. Check in was quick, easy and informative. The parameter roads are paved and in reasonably good condition. There were some big pot holes at the entrance but easily avoided. We were assigned a back in but since the rear site was not in use the clerk recommended we pull in the back and just drive forward so we would not have to disconnect the towed. Since we were only over-nighting this was a nice touch. Our site, 111 nosed out to the main road so leaving early in the morning was easy. The site was paved with a table on the grass. All amenities worked even this early in the season. There are a number or permanents here but we did not see a lot of clutter that is usually associated. The pet area is outside of the park near the entrance. There was no sign of dog waste so it appears pet owners are doing a good job. We paid $28. and change with our GS discount and feel we received good value. We would return if in the area. We camped at Dick's RV Park in a Motorhome.

2 Bar Lazy H RV Park & Campground, Butte, Montana

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

Having discovered that there are not that many RV Parks open this time of year we called ahead to make sure the park was open. Their answering machine stated that over-nighters were welcome. We had a long drive in crappy weather and just wanted a place to rest up for the next days journey. Access to the park from I-15 is good. So good that it is very close to the highway and we heard traffic even with the windows closed. Check in was quick. He told us that a 30 amp service was available but nothing else. Price $35.00. He prepared a hand written receipt and I covered the cost. He pointed out the window and said park in site 4. He explained that site 1 had not been plowed, site 2 was too mushy, site 3 had been plowed poorly. We were just over-nighting so not being too picky so off we go. The parameter roads were a muddy mess. Digging some ditches and laying a few pipes for culverts would go along way here. The roads have only a sprinkling of gravel the same with the site pads. I was worried that we might get stuck. Our site, 4, was a narrow dirt pull through. Stepping out of the coach was a challenge. The door opened to eight inches of snow! The pad was not at all level which was a problem. I would not attempt to use the levelers because they would have just sunk into the mud. Without being level we can not use our big slide. At this point we should have demanded our money back and gone elsewhere but we were tired and believed it could not get any worse. We only needed to leave the coach to walk the dog. I tramped down the snow so we could get in and out without getting a shoe full. Off for a walk with the dog. Two rows over there is a unit with 2 dogs bounding towards us. Ours is very timid so back inside. We did get her to do her business finally. It got worse still but we are at our max characters. This place is the worst we have ever encountered. Go away fast go away far! We camped at 2 Bar Lazy H RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

McCammon RV Park, Mccammon, Idaho

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

We visited this park first in 2008 and were not very impressed. We did not think we would return as we were not that pleased the last go round. This trip we stopped here for fuel and had planned on going the extra 20 to Pocatello but we were tired and the weather was poor. We decided that for just another overnighter we would give it a shot. The park was not officially open. We asked if they could open the park or if we could just park on the lot with the Semis. The clerk made a telephone call to the owner and they agreed to let us stay using power only as the water, sewer and other services were not set up yet. A pre-season price of $20.00 was agreed upon. There was snow pretty much everywhere. We had to disconnect the towed part way down the driveway as we got stuck in the snow. Had I not been driving so very, very slowly I know we would not have got stuck. We entered the first site that had less of a snow cover than the others. We did make a full loop through it just so that we knew we could get out in the morning. The access road was paved as are the parameter roads. Our site, 3, was a graveled pull through. It was level, long enough for the coach and towed and wide enough for our opposing slides. We did not drop the levelers as we did not want to discover that they were frozen to the ground in the morning. Since there was no one else in the park we found it quiet and very peaceful. Our dog, having not seen snow for a long time went crazy. she just loved running free. We can not comment on the condition of the park as it was snow covered. The Washrooms and Laundry were locked. The long list of rules that were posted everywhere were no longer. Again, we did not hear any road noise nor did we hear any trains. Perhaps we are rating the park more than it deserves. things may be different during the normal season but it served us very well. We are willing to give it another chance if we are in the area again. We camped at McCammon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wagons West RV Park, Fillmore, Utah

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Easy access to the park from I 15. Check in was quick and easy. Parameter roads are wide but they are rutted dirt. Our site, 50, was a long narrow pull through. It may have had a bit of gravel at one time but it does not show now. There is also a strip of grass that could use raking and a clean up. We had power, water, sewer and an old truck tire wheel for a fire ring. No table. This is obviously just an over-nighter but there is no attention to detail. We paid $32.00 and probably will not return. We camped at Wagons West RV Park in a Motorhome.

Chief Sleep Easy RV Park, Beaver Dam, Arizona

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

Easy access from I 15. It is paved all the way. The park is far enough way from the highway that there is no noise. Check in was quick, easy and informative. We had asked to stay a week because of weather conditions heading north. We were given an option of having to move part way through our stay in sites that were more spacious or we could park in a tight spot and not have to move. We chose the no move plan. We were tight but we have experienced worse. Parameter roads are graveled and in good condition. Our site, 74, was a back in, graveled site with power, water, sewer and a concrete patio. The patio appeared to be new but was broken away to allow for the installation of a new power pedestal. The site was set back so that even though our pad was very near our neighbor, we had ample outdoor space. The park has many permanents and lots of Winter Arizonians but all sites were neat, tidy and well kept. Dog rules are strictly enforced so there was no doggy doo anywhere. We found the park to be very quiet. There is a club house and activities planned. We chose not to partake but we met many nice people that just stopped by to say hello. There is a small store and deli near by but not an easy walk away. We paid a weekly rate of $150 and feel we received good value for our dollar. We would return. We camped at Chief Sleep Easy RV Park in a Motorhome.

McArthur's Temple View RV Resort, St George, Utah

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

Access to the park is good. It is far enough away from I 15 that one does not hear much traffic. It is an urban park so some city noise is present. Check in was quick easy and informative. Our site, 50, was a gravelled back in. It came with a concrete patio and table. The table was awkwardly placed at the rear so we didn't use it. It also came with the usual power, water and sewer well placed to the left rear. Cable was available but one needed a box. We were only over-nighting so didn't bother. OTA channels worked great. This park caters to Snowbirds thus there were planned activities as well as other amenities one would expect to entertain longer staying users. We did not partake. There is a well grassed and clean pet area near the office. This park is very clean and well card for. Restaurants are located withing a reasonable walking distance. Shopping and other services are nearby. We paid $42.26 with a GS discount and feel we received good value for our dollar. We would return. We camped at McArthur's Temple View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lake Mead RV Village, Boulder City, Nevada

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

Access to the park is good. It is paved all the way. One must access Lake Mead Recreation Area so a pass must be purchased. $25.00 per week. A short trip down the road brings you to the park. Check in was quick, easy and informative. We were guided to our site. Parameter roads are paved but are showing their age. There were a few rough areas. Upon arrival at our site we discovered that a neighbor had parked their vehicle at the entrance blocking our access. We waited about 10 minutes before it was moved. Our site 1106 was a very long, very narrow, graveled spot. It came with a very narrow concrete patio, a table and the usual power, water and sewer well placed to the left rear. Once we had completed our set up it became apparent why our neighbor had blocked our path. The site set up is totally wrong. These should be made "Back In sites with towed parking beside your unit". The sites are so narrow it is almost impossible to have slides and awnings in use. We noticed most users used the back in configuration and it worked very well. The Campground owners should take note. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. All serviced are available a short drive away in Boulder City. We paid $42.79 with a GS discount and feel we received only fair value for our dollar. The park is too run down. It needs a big face lift. We would probably not return. We camped at Lake Mead RV Village in a Motorhome.

Burro Creek (BLM), Wikieup, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is on a well maintained paved road. Check is was quick and easy. Self check in. Parameter roads are gravel and in fair condition. Not all sites are pull through but most are. Our site 10 was a fairly level pull through but it had some ruts. A few shovel of gravel could have been nice. Ours came with a covered table and a fire ring. The park was nice and quiet. There are some trails to the creek (which was running very heavy during our stay). We were hoping to see some Burros. The Park Host mentioned that there are herds in the area. We took a drive down Seventeen Mile Road but did not spot any. This was a nice over-nighter but thought $12.00 was a bit high for what you got. We would return if in the area again. There are NO SERVICES near by. Bring what you need with you. We camped at Burro Creek (BLM) in a Motorhome.

Tonto National Forest, Tortilla Flat, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

The park is located along the Apache Trail which is a very well maintained paved winding road that has two single lane bridges to cross. (That is if your starting point is Apache Junction. From Lake Roosevelt the road is not so nice. It is a poorly maintained dirt track in places.) Check in is quick and easy (self check in) The parameter roads are paved and in good shape and are Big Rig friendly. Our site, 73 was on the lower loop. It was flat, level and came with water, a table and a fire pit. There is no electricity at any of the sites and there is a clean dump station available. The desert scenery is beautiful. The park is quiet during the week but on week ends you will hear plenty of loud motorcycles. The road seems to be a favorite for Harley riders. There is not much to do at this park. There are some very short trails in the park. There is plenty of hiking in the area though. If you have a high clearance vehicle the drive the rest of the way to Lake Roosevelt is worth it. FYI we did see a number of people drive it with their sedans but its not a thing I would do. There is a small store, restaurant etc within easy walking distance at Tortilla Flat. We enjoyed our stay at Tortilla Flat and would return in a heart beat. We camped at Tonto National Forest in a Motorhome.

Gilbert Ray Campground / Tucson Mountain Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is paved all the way. Interior roads are paved, Both are in good condition. We have been to this park before. This is a very popular park. Check in was quick and efficient (once the office opened at 9:00 AM). The line up to get into the park started at 7:30AM. We arrived at 8:00AM and were the fifth in line outside of the office door. A Camp Host came to visit at about 8:45AM. We were able to add our name, type and length of rig to the number 5 spot then we could return to our vehicle to wait until the park opened. We did not have to wait long as our rig is not very long. Others with longer rigs waited still. We were assigned site 54, (One does not have the option of choosing a site. The size of your rig determines what site you are given.) Our site was quite unlevel front to back. Front wheels were about 6 inches off of the ground. The entrance to our coach is at the front which made for a large first step. Still, the park is very nice. Even though your neighbor is somewhat close there is a vegetation separation. The park is clean and quiet. There are good hiking/biking trails nearby. Plenty of things to do in nearby Tucson. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance but groceries etc just a short drive away. Verizon and ATT cell and OTA TV were good. We paid $20.00 per night and feel we received good value. We would return if in the area. We camped at Gilbert Ray Campground / Tucson Mountain Park in a Motorhome.

Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park), Las Cruces, New Mexico

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

Access was good. Even with the construction on the street. Signage was adequate. Check in was quick, easy and informative. Parameter roads are gravel and in good condition. Our site, 32 was a gravelled back in. It was wide for an urban park. It came with a table, 30/50 power, water, sewer, cable and Wifi. Wifi was only fair. It did slow down on occasion. The park nlso has in addition to washrooms, a coin laundry, pickle ball court, and a fenced dog run. There are a number of permanents but we did not notice any sites that were trashy. This is an urban park so expect the normal sirens etc. The north end of the park appears to back onto a commercial lot. We noted some industrial noise while walking our dog but not much at our site. There are restaurants and groceries available within easy walking distance. All services are available in Las Cruces. We received a "construction discount" that was a little better than the GS that we expected. We paid $30.00 per night including tax and feel we received fair value for our dollar. We would return.

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Access was good. Easy on off of I-10. Signage was adequate. Check in was quick, efficient and informative. Our site 7, was a hard packed gravel pull through. Services were to the left rear and all worked well. We did not have a table but 30/50 power, water and cable plus Wifi that worked quite well. Our rig is short so had we wanted to keep our towed connected we could have. A longer rig would have required a disconnect. The park is only an over-nighter. There is not much to keep a person in Van Horn. There are no restaurants or serviced within easy walking distance. We paid $23.50 per night including a GS discount and feel we received fair value for our dollar. We would return if in the area. We camped at Wild West RV Park in a Motorhome.

Caverns of Sonora RV Park, Sonora, Texas

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

First off. This is NOT an RV Park. The spaces allowed for camping are secondary. The only reason you want to be here for is to tour the Cavern. Our high rating is a because the park delivered just what was advertised. They give you a place to park your rig close to the caverns. Access to the park is good. Pavement all the way although the road is somewhat narrow. Signage was adequate. Check in was quick, informative and efficient. We were first in that day so we had the best choice of spots. That being said, non were spectacular. We have opposing slides. We were lucky and were able able to use both. Power and water are the only amenities and they worked well. The site was hard packed gravel and was very level. We had a little shade. The pull thru section of the park fills every night. I did hear some guests grumble a bit about the size of the sites but those folks were not here for the cave experience. Earlier posts mentioned low hanging branches. We did not see any. If you are not here to do the cave, this park will probably be a disappointment. We paid $25.00 including tax and feel we received good value for our dollar. Had we not been here for the cave we would have been not very happy. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Galveston Island State Park, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park and signage are good. There is pavement all the way but there are a few potholes that need to be attended to. Check in was not as good as it could have been. I requested 6 nights and was told that I could only have 1. Then the clerk said no, I can give you 4 and if you come back early tomorrow morning we may get you the last 2. I go back the next AM and a different clerk said it would have been no problem at the beginning to get all 6. Neither side of the park was ever full while we were there. We stayed on the Bay side as we wanted the view. We visited the Ocean side to walk the beach and are glad we did not stay there. We drove the 2 minutes to the beach instead. Our site, 59, was a paved back in (but we nosed in). It came with 30/50 power, water and a tired table. Fire pits were available in the center of the park along with shelters. There are no washrooms in the RV section. Dump station available near exit. Tenting next door had them. We used this park as a base to visit Galveston. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. Galveston, a few miles down the road had all services. We paid $20.00 night and feel we received fair value for our dollar. We would return if in the area. We camped at Galveston Island State Park in a Motorhome.
