Suncrest RV Resort, Moses Lake, Washington

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Easy to access with GPS; and easy on off to highway/free way(?) l am just passing thru so its' pull through sites are ideal. WiFi was great when l was there. lt's my 3 rd time staying here and l like the park for its large grassy area(s) where l can get in some chuck-ball with dogs, don't recommend walking pooches in the surrounding fields tho...too many nasty thorns etc. This park is well lit up too so is easy to walk at night, and if you are arriving late you can still see well enough to get parked by yourself. One thing l have noticed is they have some of the best staff - lots of interesting info and laughs. We camped at Suncrest RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Valley View RV Park, Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Cannot give 5 stars as there was really no "view" - this is a quaint adequate well staffed easy access decent priced Rv park. l stayed overnight as traveling thru, but as their rates are so reasonable l will be back to unhook and explore some of Ely's truly awesome views. Not the best WiFi but adequate for my time there. Close to the highway, so expect some road noise in their pull-thru sites, yet it does not have trucks turning or slowing down traffic - so still allowed for a decent sleep. l prefer this Rv park over the hi priced KOA that l use to stay at. Also avoid the Loves for fuel - does Not take Canadian cards at pumps, and access in and out is a messy mixed up maze. No savings for the aggravation. More interesting store too at the Chevron Ely a little further down the road...and much cheaper fuel. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park), Baker City, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Note there is a name change [new owners] "A-Frame Rv Park." WiFi still problematic and mostly useless. Sadly the 15 acre 'dog-run' field has become a landmine of dog feces as irresponsible pet guardians are too lax about cleaning up after their fido. It would behoove the new owners to set up the necessary tools to encourage for better clean up there. l have stayed here last 3 years - it is not a resort nor claims to be. Their price is a bit high for what you get as absolutely nothing new has been done to it in upgrades. The sites are still mostly unlevel and minimally maintained - l've stayed in every row now and its never changed. Bathrooms were painted(?) but putting makeup on a pig...its still a pig!

Still a decent small & quaint park which is conveniently located with easy off/on to l-84. That makes it still fine for an overnight respite. We camped at A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This is still my most favorite RV park heading down south and going home. I love that they have trees on many sights, and many other sights with small football-size-fields of lawn! Credit and Kudos belong to the original owners & designers for achieving an almost perfect RV park. Great layout, easy in &out, helpful courteous staff, really clean, quiet and peaceful. Travelling solo means l prefer to go where 'technology' has been embraced [ie: GPS; excellent WiFi; ALL & updated amenities] especially since the dog refuses to drive or read a map! l need all this to make "my" experience a planned luxurious layover - and the price is still bang for your buck. Health dictates my travel itinerary so l do not make reservations and l have always been welcomed the last 4 years. The WiFi has become streamlined and has been infallible the last 3 times l've stayed - possibly G7 made that happen(?) Heavy emphasis that there are 2 RV parks in area with Mountain Home in the name - make sure you are at the right one. We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Smokiam RV Resort (formerly Soap Lake RV Resort), Soap Lake, Washington

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

At $42/night US = $56/CND with current exchange, and with taxes that is over $60/night. We arrived after 5PM and parked [no help] choosing the older section where we usually parked before and nothing new has been done to these sites - still basic 70's style sites. We have been staying here the last 4 years both arriving & exiting the US. With the Sam club card it has always been under $30 w/ taxes. They are not answering the office phone as we began calling a week in advance to attempt to make a reservation - and would never have stayed knowing all this before hand. We will not be staying here again, but it really was just a preferred stop for the fur-family. Cannot speak of 'ammenities' as we never use - just a preferred overnight stop with electric only.

Gallagher Lake Resort (formerly Gallagher Lake KOA), Oliver, British Columbia

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects US funds [to date] and for one month. Intended to stay only couple weeks before crossing, but was really impressed with the location of this park and my site. I usually stay at another rural park, but as a new penitentiary has recently opened in that neighbourhood - that park has filled with permanents. l could not give a perfect score, as the sites are very unlevel [front end of my fiver is almost on the ground to be level]; sites are a bit too close for my taste [with the cool not able to sit outside as much]. Very strange plan layout of park, so backing into my site was definitely challenging [no one comes with you to guide you in tho l asked - l lucked out with a helpful neighbor]. Office hours went minimal so could only access laundry on their 2/3 days a week last couple of weeks; no off leash/dog area [l have been coming to Oliver last 4 years so l know where to go for the good dog walking/parks]. Tho close to a fairly busy highway, l was pleasantly surprised not to hear much traffic [trailer was mostly closed for cool weather]. Weekly, l was treated to a small herd of big horn sheep sauntering thru park as there is an impressive cliff on one side of the park. l got a site with trees so l was entertained daily by birds and many quail. The weather stayed reasonable so it allowed me to postpone heading south. l will definitely come back. We camped at Gallagher Lake Resort (formerly Gallagher Lake KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a nice park and even with the obvious flaws those can be overlooked with the ideal location - that allows one to easily venture into Penticton; visit Tickleberry's and walk on the rail trail in Okanogan Falls; enjoy the best pizza l've had in BC at Amore's Pizza Factory; and to discover all the wonderful wineries around Oliver.

Noisy Creek Rec Site, Kingfisher, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

It is definitely off the beaten path...and there in lies the rub - getting to this place is more of a challenge. For us in the truck it was 2hrs of dilapidated logging roads, some sections fine - tho mostly dicey and curvy, and NOT wide enough for 2 vehicles to pass comfortably. I would not recommend bringing anything larger than a simple standard size pull type [which "i" still would not do!] but its a beautiful fairly pristine spot. Less people during the week but it fills with party-ers especially on holiday weekends. We only camped for a day - plan was weekend but the revelers were way too noisy. We had stayed before any management staff had yet been assigned for the season - so it was sort of anarchistic. We still enjoyed the practically private beach [for tent-ers] and there were some really interesting paths through out the park. Great area for BIG dogs - why I felt safe for one night. We camped at Noisy Creek Rec Site in a Tent.

Smokiam RV Resort, Soap Lake, Washington

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

I really like this park and I can easily say it is my most favorite park Washington. New owner, so it's currently undergoing major construction with lots of aggressive remodeling of the park. The original sites were mostly pull-throughs and a bit challenging entering & exiting, but they are ever ready to offer you help of any kind, and the new sites are being made more big rig friendly.

This spot in Washington is truly beautiful and unique, I want to come back unhook and really explore the area more. We were even allowed to use a 'football' size lawn for chuck ball for the big dogs, as currently there is no "dog run". I did walk in (and carefully backed out) of the public washroom and showers - duly note they are on the list to update and remodel. Really good Wi-Fi (but there were very few of us there at the time, maybe 12-20 others). We walked the beach and all around the park; we thoroughly enjoy the area. Lots of different parts to park with different things to do - this place must rock the locals' summer. I for one am excited to return and experience the changes this fall. Kudos to a new owner that is truly improving by polishing up such a gem in Washington. We camped at Smokiam RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park), Baker City, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

I love the 15 acre dog run here! Great area to play chuck-ball with dogs. I stumbled upon this gem of a park on our way south in the fall, we would have extended the stay then but it was raining...and we are from BC so trying to avoid that "winter weather." Its a nice unpretentious little park; very good value for your dollar; really easy to find with road signs [and GPS was spot on for the return trip] surprisingly quiet even tho located near I-84. I really appreciate the big old trees - that just makes the experience feel more like true camping. The sites are gravel/dirt and all different lengths - but they know their stuff here and some honest to gawd 'star-size' bus with a trailer managed to be fit in for tonight.

The check in was swift and very accommodating - even has a gas bar [tho NO deisel] and its quite a nice little souvenir and local nick knacks store - all around it is great bang for your buck here. We did note that washrooms/showers were being freshly painted. Next fall planning longer layover and definitely going to check out the area more. We camped at A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Ely KOA, Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Koa's are proving disappointing on so many levels. This by far was the 'best' koa we ever stayed in. Impossible to find with GPS; far enough out of town and off hiway to make it decently quiet; small but clean dog run; pull thru sites are adequate typical gravel sites and suitable for a night; some sites even have the odd tree. Unfortunately this Koa is tired and very dated - their bathroom/showers are archaic and in desperate need of fixing up and updating. When we arrived I was chilled and wanting a nice hot shower so I risked it - the lights went out while i was toweling off and it is cramped and pitch black in there not a pleasant experience at all. The park hosts/managers were great and very accommodating, yet they cannot make up for the sad and shoddy conditions. For what we were/are charged at Koa's we rip up our card, and from now on will use campgroundreviews.com to plan layovers. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This park was easy to find - i found them with GPS. This is a "model RV park" that ALL other parks should take note of and learn from. Beautiful spacious grassy and treed sites - with proper "ample spacing between" them. I appreciate the bonus white picket fence protecting/hiding sewer connections. I am tired of stepping out of my rig to end up basically on top of a neighbors sewer line. I came for a night...stayed for a week! I met the owner/operators while i was signing in and they are quite gems. This park even has a new LARGE [and a LITERAL] Dog run. I have a large dog and she is able to run around and expel some of that 'stupid' energy acquired while we're driving.

I had to try the showers, though I usually use my own, but they were amazing with private rooms, spotless, and enough of them to allow good chance of finding fresh clean unused one. Great laundry facilities as well - never had to wait for a machine.

Just wish this park were further south and i would stay the entire winter - 6 months. We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There are no Dog Parks in Mountain Home, yet i was told i could take my dog for long off leash walks around the reservoir - which is really close and easy to drive to/find. It gives dogs a chance to really work off energy, and is a decent walk for yourself being easy and flattish, the roads into/around the reservoir are used for 'mud-bogging' by locals so watch your step around some of the ruts left behind.

Walmart Super Center close by - your one stop shopping.

Twin Falls / Jerome KOA, Jerome, Idaho

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

GPS did not find so had to stop and phone for directions - twice. A definite poorly laid out Rv park - lots of short lanes and turns making it challenging to get into our pull thru site with just a 30'fiver. The sites are uneven gravel or sand or dirt [you pick...its all there] Too close to your neighbors - you can always watch their TV...you can hear it from your trailer. Super small dog run probably meant for small dogs only. Too close to hiway to be great for sleeping. As per usual @koa's nice people managing the park yet they cannot hide/make up for the tired outdated crappy park conditions. It was just a layover and i for one was happy to get it in the rear view mirror. Will not be back. We camped at Twin Falls / Jerome KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Apple Beach RV Park (formerly Sunny Beach RV Park), Oliver, British Columbia

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a sweet little park (30 sites) quiet and quaint. Really good TV and Wifi while I was here [2 week lay over before traveling south]. I really like the big weeping willow trees, and thoroughly enjoyed the owls and other birds. Its great if you can get one of the few (6?) sites that allow you to actually view the lake from your back window. There are picnic tables at each site but the sites are still a bit too close to your neighbors to allow for sitting outside in solitude [tho with the docks and benches set up around - there are places to go to experience it] My friend visiting us used the showers and claimed they are worth the few dollars. I prefer to wash sheets/towels in HOT water, tho for most clothes the cold water is acceptable. The park owner and operators are great and were full of useful info on the area esp where to find walks/hikes for the big dogs, places to eat, shop etc. This is the kind of campground that reminds me of when I was young - not fussy or over developed, just good clean decent small quiet and enjoyable. We camped at Apple Beach RV Park (formerly Sunny Beach RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

There are great walking/hiking paths running parallel to the river in Oliver, and even just down the road you can find parts of that path that can take you right into town. So I found it easy to keep big dogs happy and exercised around here.

Cedar City KOA, Cedar City, Utah

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Fairly easy to find park - tho GPS only gets you close [with in blocks of]. Located in town on outskirts, but not on/near over busy street. Typical gravel sites [level] no grass no trees on most pull thru sites. Fairly easy in and out. Internet restricts any video streaming [so no movies/Netflix]. It's public laundry, so hours are restricted, tho big with enough machines but it is not cheap. Fair size dog run - all sand. We came for the exciting State Parks only to learn that most State parks do NOT allow dogs - so that shortened our stay in Utah. Lovely [native] young lady at check in proved a fountain of useful info on other areas to walk the dogs [long and even some off leash] No dog parks yet, tho there are attempts to add one in future.

We were here for a week as Cedar City is centrally located, and there are some beautiful places/spots to check out in surrounding areas. Decent shopping as well. We camped at Cedar City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Pasco / Tri-Cities KOA, Pasco, Washington

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The sites are extremely uneven (we tried 2), and the freeway noise is horrendous and does not let up around the clock - you cannot hardly converse outside trailer. It was raining when we were here so the trailer stayed closed up or we would not have been able to sleep at all. KOAs are proving too pricey for what you get. Amazingly KOAs seem to be staffed by wonderful people - yet that does not change the shoddy tired outdated facilities being offered at most KOAs. We were card members for a year but have been unimpressed and unsatisfied with every KOA we have stayed at - this is the last one we will ever stay in. We camped at Pasco / Tri-Cities KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
