Armitage Park , Eugene, Oregon

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

We have camped here several times when visiting relatives in Eugene or on our way home. It's a very nice county park with a lovely rural feel even though you're not too far off I-5. The sites are roomy, level, and well-spaced. The restrooms are older but pretty well maintained. My only complaint would be that when I had to change days, Lane County charged me a $5 fee on top of the $30 rate and the original $10 reservation fee. That brought the total cost to $45 for one night, which is pretty high for a park like this. Still, we will probably camp here again. We camped at Armitage Park in a Truck Camper.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

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

This a is a very nice RV park. Wide, paved interior roads and very spacious sites for a commercial park. You park among the orange trees and are encouraged to pick the fruit. There are several classes of sites: full hook-up pull-through with and without cable TV, monthly full hook-up, and pull-in sites with just water and electric. We choose the later to save a few bucks. The restrooms were very clean. The office staff was helpful enough but seemed more interested in talking among themselves. There were free coffee and doughnuts in the morning and three fenced off-leash dog parks. Although I guess it's technically in Bakersfield, it feels like you're out on the country. We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Picacho Peak State Park, Picacho, Arizona

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

If you've ever driven up I-10 from Tucson to Phoenix, you've probably noticed Picacho Peak. The state park has a very nice campground. It's just a few miles off the highway, which you can see in the distance, but there's no noise. Sites are level, roomy, and well spaced. We stopped here for one night after touring Saguaro National Park. We could almost have skipped the national park because are lots of Saguaro cacti here. We had several right next to our site. The facility is well-maintained, everything is clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The only odd thing is that there is no water at the hook-up sites, so make sure your tank is full. We only spent one night here, so we didn't explore the park much. It has several hiking trails and the site of the Battle of Picacho Pass, said to be the most significant Civil War battle in the west. We would stay here again, with more time to explore. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Truck Camper.

Salton Sea SRA / Headquarters Camp, Mecca, California

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

I would call this park serviceable. We had a reservation in the Mecca campground, but it was closed due to a water problem, so we were moved to this facility. It's more like a commercial RV park than a state park. It's basically a row of sites along the edge of a big parking lot. The sites are level but pretty close to each other. You do have a nice view of the Salton Sea, and it's just a short walk across the parking lot to the beach. (Beware: dogs are not allowed on the beach.) There are two sets of restrooms. One set appears to be for day users and is buggy and not very well kept. The other set is newer and quite well maintained. We didn't see any evidence of showers. We used this as a base to explore Joshua Tree National Park because the campgrounds there were all full. It worked well for that, although the shortest route, Box Canyon Road, was closed, so we had to drive around, which took about an hour. As state parks go, this campground is kind of disappointed, but, as I said, serviceable. We camped at Salton Sea SRA / Headquarters Camp in a Truck Camper.

Palmetto Island State Park, Abbeville, Louisiana

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

This is a fairly new park (open since 2010) and it shows. Everything is clean and new. Sites are all back-in, but they are roomy, widely spaced, and well shaded. There is free laundry and wifi, which is unusual for a state park. Unfortunately, the wifi is pretty slow, but cellular connectivity is fine, even though the park is pretty remote. We liked being away from the highway and took advantage of it by taking Route 82 along the gulf when we left. Highly recommended. We camped at Palmetto Island State Park in a Truck Camper.

Stephen F. Austin State Park, San Felipe, Texas

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

This is a very nice state park with spacious, level pull-through sites. We only stayed one night, so didn't have time to explore the hiking trails and other activities. There is one loop with 40 full hook-up sites and three other loops for tent campers or people who don't need hook-ups. Our site was quite roomy with a large open, mowed area next to it. Everything was clean and worked. Definitely recommended. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Truck Camper.

Mountain Gate RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice RV park, conveniently located just off I-5 north of Redding. It's close to the highway, but we didn't notice any road noise. Sites are level and reasonably spacious for a commercial park, with quite a few trees and other foliage. Staff is friendly and helpful. Everything is clean and well maintained. Our dog and I especially liked the fenced dog park, which had plenty of room for him to romp and chairs for me to sit in. We have camped here twice and had a good experience both times.

South Llano River State Park, Junction, Texas

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

Very nice campground. Sites are big, well-spaced, and level. The staff and park hosts are friendly and helpful. Restrooms are clean and well-maintained. There's lots of hiking. We took a lovely walk along the river. There's a big roosting area for wild turkeys, but we didn't see any. The park also has blinds for bird-watching. We did see several armadillos. Note: locals pronounce the name "lano," not the Spanish "yano." We would camp here again. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Truck Camper.

Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn), Terlingua, Texas

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

We stayed here because all the campgrounds in Big Bend National Park were full. It's a convenient base for visiting the park and exploring the Big Bend area, but it's an average campground at best. The staff are friendly and helpful enough, but the owners don't seem to be putting much of an effort into keeping the park up. Example: the laundry room is only open from 9 to 5, which is pretty inconvenient if you're trying to see the area. Furthermore, many of the dryers don't dry. The restrooms are also not well kept. Only one shower was working, and one day one toilet in the men's room was backed up and the other one was running. The sites are reasonably level and a decent size, but nothing special. You're in the desert, so there's no shade. If you spend most of your time in the national park and just sleep here, you'll be okay. We camped at Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn) in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want some good Texas barbecue, drive up the road toward the Terlingua ghost town and stop at DB's Rustic Iron BBQ. It's not much more than glorified food truck, but the food is terrific. I has the brisket and my wife had the turkey and both were excellent.

Blakeley State Park, Spanish Fort, Alabama

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

Blakeley is run by the state but it is administered and financed separately from the state park system. There's a lot to like about this park, and a couple of problems. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Sites are large, well-equipped, and fairly private. You are camping in the woods here. The park itself is also quite interesting. It's the site of a 19th century town that was briefly a rival port to Mobile and the site of a Civil War battle said to be the largest fought in Alabama. It's generally a pleasant place with lots of interesting flora. However, the park proper is a bit far from the RV campground, so you need to drive or be up for a long walk. The problems: Our site wasn't even close to level. Looking around, it appeared that some sites were level and some weren't. And the bathrooms in the RV campground are vault toilets. There is a very nice bathroom, with showers, at the tent campground, but that's a least a mile away. If those two things don't bother you, then this is a fine place to camp. If they do, then I agree with another reviewer that the state park near Spanish Fort is a better choice. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

There's a boardwalk along the river that makes for a nice walk, and the park has a boat that takes people out for excursions in the area. If you're a Civil War buff, there's a cell phone tour of the battlefield.

Victoria Bryant State Park, Royston, Georgia

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice place to camp. We have stopped here three times on our way east from North Carolina and will probably do so again. The staff is very friendly and helpful and gave us a partial refund on the camp fee because we were seniors. The park is lovely. The sites are large and level. Everything is clean and well-maintained. Highly recommended. We camped at Victoria Bryant State Park in a Truck Camper.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Palo Duro Canyon is supposed to be the second largest canyon in the United States. The park and campgrounds are on the floor of the canyon, so it's quite a different experience from visiting the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed our stay very much. Our campground (Hackberry) was very nice, with level gravel sites in the woods, pretty well separated from others. Most sites are back in, but there are some pull through. We saw some big rigs.There's lots to do in the park, from hiking to horseback riding. Bathrooms and showers were okay, typical for a state park. Definitely worth a visit.

Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

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

Very nice commercial RV park if a bit pricey. It's back from the highway, so little road noise. Sites are roomy. It's divided into two parts, the resort side and the campground side, where we stayed. Most of the people camped here were in big motor homes and fifth wheels. It's very convenient to get to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Oddly they are separate, which is kind of inconvenient. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Truck Camper.

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We've stayed here twice while in transit. It's a very nice commercial park, spacious with lots of trees, as the name implies. It's right on the Snake River. Sites are gravel, level, and room. Service is excellent. They guide you to your site and make sure everything is to your liking. In addition to all the usual campground services, there's a gas station and a grill, which will deliver to your site. It's nice for a break from cooking in the camper.

Emigrant Springs, La Grande, Oregon

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

This is a very nice state park campground. It has hookups, well-spaced sites, and interesting stuff to explore. It's also convenient to both Pendleton and LaGrande. The only downside is that it's right next to I 84, do you get truck noise all night. It didn't bother us much, but it might be hard for light sleepers. We chose a site in the B loop as far away from the road as we could, but I'm not sure it made any difference. The one other problem is that water at the sites is oddly placed, not next to the electric. You'll need a long hose to reach it. We camped at Emigrant Springs in a Truck Camper.
