Ward Mountain BLM Recreation Area, Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $4.00
Overall Rating:

We've travelled extensively throughout the nation and full-timed it for two years, and this is probably the nicest BLM campground we've ever been to. It looks brand new. The sites vary, but most are spacious, and there is an "RV" section as well, although smaller units can easily fit in lots of the other sites. There are hiking trails all over and a bunch of group sites as well as a huge extra parking lot. Site had a picnic table, tent pad, barbecue, and even a side table next to the bbq! It's about 6 miles SW of Ely and set far enough back off Route 6 that it was super quiet. The camp fee is $8/night, $4 with the Senior Pass. Can't beat it! I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the area unless I HAD to have hookups. We camped at Ward Mountain BLM Recreation Area in a Truck Camper.

White Tank Regional Park, Waddell, Arizona

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

This is a beautiful park and a lovely campground. E & W only, but there is a dump station at the exit of the campground. We were here in August and it was hellaciously hot and we were the only campers there but I can imagine that it fills up in more temperate times of the year. It is on the small side so I would make reservations as soon as possible. Most sites seem to require some leveling, but everything is very clean. The view of the lights of Phoenix in the distance at night was awesome! Didn't use the restrooms, but I looked in and they appeared to be bright, clean and modern. Expect we will be back.

Valley of Fire State Park, Overton, Nevada

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

Price reflects $10 entrance fee, and $20 RV E&W site. This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to and we've traveled widely for several years. In August, it was easy to get a spot because it was hellaciously hot, but they do not take reservations and I hear you have to be there when it opens to get a site most of the time in the more temperate times of the year. Not surprised. You will have to look long and hard to find a more scenic place to camp. Didn't use the restrooms, but checked them out and they were clean, bright, and modern. Sites are very generously sized and spaced far enough apart for some privacy. Just passing through this time, but hope to be back again when the weather is mild enough to spend some time outside exploring. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Truck Camper.

This is a nice park and convenient overnight stop. Didn't use the restrooms so can't comment, but the rest of the place was clean. Good service, Verizon worked, nothing bad to stay. Nice scenery too. We camped at Coral Sands RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Skip Monument Valley which is crowded and overpriced IMHO with a HORRIBLY rough road to drive. Instead, drive the Valley of the Gods road just north of there in UT. Much easier drive and just as beautiful for free. Lots of places for primitive camping too if you do not need hookups with spectacular scenery for free.

Homolovi Ruins State Park, Winslow, Arizona

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

One of our favorite places to stay when passing through the area. The sites are generous, widely spaced, and clean. There is a variety of No Hook Up, 30 amp, and 50 amp spots. Nice ruins to visit within the park. Easy access to the freeway, but far enough away that traffic noise (and the trains) aren't a problem. Verizon service was good. Nothing bad to say, and we'll be back. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Truck Camper.

South Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Been here many times over the years and it's a favorite. Love the easy access to the beach. Only 1/4 mile walk from Loop A. Longer further back in the campground, or you can drive to the day area. E & W only, clean restrooms. Verizon was ok. Agree with prior poster about trying not to get a spot on the main road in/out since it is a huge camp with lots of in/out traffic. Didn't use the dump, but for the 5 days we were there there was ALWAYS at least 3-4 rigs waiting. Better to dump elsewhere before or after. Great place to stay to access the central coast, but make reservations EARLY. It is almost always full in summer. We camped at South Beach State Park in a Truck Camper.

The Narrows RV Park, Princeton, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We've stayed here about a half dozen times over the last 15 years or so and it just keeps getting nicer. Didn't use the restrooms or laundry so can't comment, but the rest of the campground is very clean and well cared for. Sites vary. Most pull thru, but there are back-ins around the outside. First site we tried wasn't very level but the one next to it was fine. There is a nice café where we had the best breakfast we've had in a long time. Service was slow, but it was worth waiting for. Unfortunately, the place is up for sale. I sure hope someone buys it and continues it because there are very few choices in the area and we rely on The Narrows as a nice place to stay when we travel through the area. Only negative is that there were tons of mosquitoes when we were there at the end of July. Bring plenty of bug spray! We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Elko RV Park At Ryndon, Elko, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Good overnight stop. Very easy access on/off freeway, but campground was quiet despite being close to the road. There are many full-timers but the overnighters have an area close to the entrance and facilities. I did not visit the restrooms. Husband said they were dirty and would not use the showers though. Other than that, nothing bad to say. Service was quick and friendly. Would stay again. We camped at Elko RV Park At Ryndon in a Truck Camper.

Kaibab Paiute Band Tribal Campground, Kaibab, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Office closed early. Had to drive back down to Chevron to register and deal with a very rude & surly young lady. Mumbled something like "RV or (unintelligible). I said we have a truck camper. She sighed loudly, rolled her eyes, and in a VERY loud voice said "RV OR TENT". I answered in an even louder voice "RV" with a glare. She seemed to get the message and was slightly less surly, but I was already soured on the place. No excuse for that sort of so-called "customer service"! Many sites were marked "closed" for no apparent reason. Sites close, but I've seen worse. Reasonably level. Electricity working well despite it being in the high 90s. Didn't bother with water hookup but all looks ok. Main bldg looks nice but too hot and windy to bother going over to check it out. No picnic tables and no shade. Good wifi though, and grounds are clean. Not nearly as impressed as many of the prior posters, but at $25 FHU it's still a good value. Would probably stay again despite some drawbacks.

Sea Ranch RV Park & Stables, Cannon Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We've been coming to this campground for years because of its location walking distance from both downtown Cannon Beach and the beach itself. It also has a lovely setting on a creek and horses in the pasture next to the creek and bunnies all over the place. It has had its ups and downs and has had some decent upgrades in recent years including all new electrical hookups, but it is still a very old campground with mostly tent sites. There are a fair number of hook up sites that'll accommodate small to medium size rigs but only a handful suitable for big rigs. The toilet/showers are clean and functional but old and not very appealing. For a price of $50 now for a E & W site, I feel it is a ripoff. But everything in Cannon Beach is expensive so I guess they are charging what the market can bear. It's too bad, because I love coming here, but that is just too high of a price for what you get despite the convenient location. Verizon and T-Mobile work fine but there is no wi-fi. Also I have NEVER been there when the so-called "General Store" has been open. We camped at Sea Ranch RV Park & Stables in a Truck Camper.

Webb County Campground, Pacific City, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

The only real reason to go here is the location. It is right across the road from the beach at Cape Kiwanda and the Pelican Brewpub. The camp is OK but overpriced in my estimation with the "gotcha" $11 registration fee (even for one night) and the $5/day fee per dog. Didn't use the facilities. There are showers but they use quarters. The grounds are kept clean and there is decent Verizon and T-Mobile service. There are only about 6 "RV" spots with hookups although many of the other "tent" sites would accommodate small to medium size rigs. There is a market next door at the fancy RV park that has a decent selection of stuff but prices are very high. You're better off bringing your supplies with you. The Pizza restaurant next door has pretty good pizza. Cars are allowed to drive on and park on the beach and it was an absolute zoo when we were there on Father's Day weekend. Dozens upon dozens of cars taking up all the beach space in front of the pub and a zillion people all over the place. Not what I've come to expect from most Oregon beaches. If you are looking for quiet and nature this is NOT the place to camp. We camped at Webb County Campground in a Truck Camper.

Beverly Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large park with a combo of Full hook-up, Electric & Water, and no hook-up sites. There is direct, easy access to the beach from the campground via walking paths that lead under Hwy 101 with no dunes to climb. However, the campground runs from East to West and it is a pretty long walk to get to the beach from the most Easterly section of the park which is the newer section. The restroom/shower room in that section is brighter and more modern than the ones in the older section. We were near the front of the camp and used the shower room in D Loop. It is older, but adequate. The stalls are small but the water was hot and pressure was good. Most of the sites are heavily wooded so solar power would be sketchy and satellite probably wouldn't work either. If TV is important to you, though, some sites offer cable. Didn't try it so can't comment. Little to no data service and only spotty cellphone service was available on either Verizon or T-Mobile. There is also a nice nature trail through the woods around the campground. We've been to Beverly many times over the years and will probably come again primarily for the access to the beach. We camped at Beverly Beach State Park in a Truck Camper.

Tillicum Beach Campground, Yachats, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

This is a VERY popular park. There are both reservable and first-come-first-served sites but every single reservable site was reserved for at least a week when we were there in early June. Make your reservations well in advance if you want to camp here or get there early in the day to snag a non-reservable. The camp is on a hill that slopes down from Rt 101 to a cliff overlooking the ocean. Many of the sites have extreme slants to them either front to back, side to side, or both and most are not what I would consider big rig friendly. If you need to be level for your slides to operate properly you better be prepared with an assortment of blocks and jacks. No dump and no showers although there are flush toilets in bright clean buildings and big trash bins throughout the park which I appreciate. The outside sites on the loop closest to 101 get lots of road noise. Also, except for the "ocean front" section, the sites are heavily wooded so if you rely on solar you could be in trouble. As for the ocean front sites, don't count on getting a full ocean view from your rig unless you sit up high like we do in our truck camper or in a motorhome. The edge along the cliff has thick vegetation that cuts down on the view in most spots. Also, you cannot access the beach from your site. There are three stairways though that do provide good access to the sand. Little to no data service and only spotty cellphone service was available on either Verizon or T-Mobile. We camped at Tillicum Beach Campground in a Truck Camper.

Lagoon Campground - USFS, Dunes City, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

This is a really lovely NFS campground. No hookups but there are flush toilets. Sites are a combo of back in and pull through. Some are small, but there are plenty that will accommodate normal size campers. Some spots would fit big rigs, but they are limited. It is very quiet with no road noise, but you can hear the ocean in the background. There is also a nice walking trail along the lagoon that encircles the camping area. Most of the sites are open enough that your solar panels will work well but most also have some shady area to set up your chairs. At $11 with the senior pass, it's a good value.

Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park, Florence, Oregon

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

This state park has a combo of Full hook-up, Electric & Water, and No hook-up sites. It is first come, first served only. It is on the East side of Rt 101. The day use area and dump station is on the west side. There is a beautiful walking path of about 1/2 mile from the campground to the beach through the coastal rain forest. It is all level except for a short part that goes under and up the other side of the highway. It is a rather long walk, but an easy, beautiful one and provides handy access to the beach. The shower room was bright and clean. There are separate tiled shower stalls with only a tiny stool and some hooks inside. There is a long bench in the outer area though. The biggest annoyance is that it runs on a push button and the water only runs for about 17 seconds before you need to push the button again. It took me 18 button pushes for a normal shower! I don't mind having to push the button but at least run it for a minute or so! Also, I hung my dry clothes on the hook on the door of the stall and my pants got splashed with water from the shower, so I suggest you leave your dry clothes on the hooks or bench outside the stall. Plenty of hot water and good pressure, though. The sites tend to be on the small side. If you travel with a big rig your choices might be quite limited. Most of the sites seem to be in the high 30 ft to low 40 ft range. Also, almost all the sites have a lot of shade so forget using the solar panels or satellite in most cases. Nice enough park, but for the money you can do better in the area IMHO. Also there is almost no service at all from either Verizon or T-Mobile. If you can forgo the hookups, the forest service campgrounds in the area are a much better value especially since most of them honor the Senior Pass for 50% off the camping fee. We camped at Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park in a Truck Camper.
