We stayed here for one night on our way south and found the RV park to be very nice. Sites were gravel and level and electric good. They have only a few big rig sites, especially if you want to stay hooked up during your stay. The park is clean and the hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Can't say there is much to Wells except for fuel stops at Hwy 93 & I-80. The park is an easy off & on to I-80 and although close to the freeway the traffic noise was negligible.

We've stayed here on prior occasions and found the park to be adequate for a couple of days stay. Good electric and water; however, one BIG drawback in my opinion is their sewer hookups. Each site has a shared utility pedestal with only one sewer opening for two sites. Basically you open a sliding door and place your sewer hose inside and your neighbor does the same. The sewer waste whether gray or black goes into the same drainage area which is not sealed to help prevent sewage odor. Also nothing prevents waste from you neighbor getting onto your sewer hose and vice versa. Obviously whoever came up with this gem didn't do any RVing. Other than the above the sites are gravel, but level and adequate to allow most coaches to stay hooked up if desired.

Nice RV park which is easily accessible off Boulder Highway. We had a level pull-through which was adequate without unhooking our motorhome and tow vehicle. It was an overnight stay so only hooked up to electricity. It wasn't hot so can't comment if the electrical was adequate in that type of weather. Overall would definitely stay here again.

Nice RV Park with level, pull-through site. Other sites I noticed are pretty sloped so may be difficult to level your rig. The site is barely adequate for a big rig towing if you don't want to unhook. One drawback is only 30amp electric at our site. However, there are 50amp sites but not available on our arrival. Fortunately the weather was nice during our stay so no need for A/C. The casino and restaurants are a bit of a hike from the RV park, but they do offer free shuttles back and forth.

Good things first. The park is easily accessible off Hwy 93 and the sites are adequate and level for big rigs without having to unhook. Apparently it is a first come, first serve basis and payment is made with an envelope at the entrance into the park. Not so good things. There is only 30amp electric which was good, but then again it wasn't hot. A sign posted at the entrance states they only want "grey" water dumped at the site and you are supposed to use the dump site for sewer. Don't know what would have happened if the black tank was dumped, but we only stayed overnight so didn't have to find out. All in all the park is adequate for an overnight stay but I wouldn't make it a destination park. FYI another RV park is located on the east side of the casino which supposedly has trees for shade, etc. I didn't check it out however. If dry camping is your thing there is an "event" parking lot on the north side of the casino which is free, close to the casino and pool and quiet.

This site is strictly an overnighter, if that. Dirt/gravel roads and sites. The sites are relatively level. Lots of trees so if you want satellite access your choices are limited. The only site they say will get satellite reception is site 26 which only has 30amp service. We stayed in that site and no problem with reception or electricity. Not sure if there are any others. This park will do in a pinch but I will probably look elsewhere in the future.

This park is so nice that we purchased a lot and will stay on it during the summer months. The park is as described by the previous posts. If looking to rent for a month or more the current monthly rent is $690 which includes Wi-Fi, cable TV and trash pickup at your site. A newspaper can also be delivered to your site. The utilities are excellent as far as electrical, water, and sewer. The adjacent golf course and RV park are maintained in pristine condition. All in all a great destination park.

Great little park for a night or a few days stay. Interior roads and sites are all asphalt in good shape and sites are relatively level. Lots of grass between sites which are spaced far enough apart to be comfortable. We have a 43' MH and were able to leave our tow car attached with plenty of room. There is very good electrical. We didn't use sewer or water so can't comment. It does appear that there are several permanent residents but the park was very clean. The park is adjacent to I-84 on Hwy 395 and adjacent to a Pilot station. When you exit I-84 you will see a sign directing you to turn to access the RV park. That is okay for small rigs but larger rigs should continue on Hwy 395 to the access road leading to the truck diesel islands for the Pilot station, drive thru the truck lot to the RV park entrance. The same holds true when exiting the park. The one drawback is the lack of restaurants in the immediate area within walking distance. Only thing available is a Subway and McDonald's at the Pilot Station. The price reflects the Good Sam discount. We would definitely stay here again.

The park is located east of the downtown area and is an okay park but not sure why the high ratings by Trailer Life. A bit pricey for what you get. WI-FI was weak. Sites are level, and park is clean. It appears that there are lots of permanent residents.

Still a very nice and clean park with level sites. Some are dirt/gravel and most have cement slabs to park on. It's a great park for a stop over heading north or south on Hwy 95. Other than a downtown casino and Walker Lake not sure what activities there are in the area. We would stay again when passing through. Only one negative is the dust that accumulates on the RV & toad.

We were on our way west and stopped for fuel at the Morongo Travel Center. We then decided to boondock in their parking lot. The lot is asphalt and relatively level and located at the far back of the casino/hotel. Park perpendicular to the marked parking spaces for an easier level. The experience was much nicer than our previous stays at the casinos in the Indio area, and about 15 degrees cooler for this time of the year. We would have no problem staying here again. The price reflected is actually zero, but of course you don't factor in what's spent at the casino. They also have casino shuttles that occasionally come through the parking lot, but it's not a long walk from the parking lot to the casino and restaurants.

We stayed in the new Cottonwood section and will ditto the observations of the previous post reference the unfinished sites. Lots of dirt tracked into your coach and if it rains that changes to mud. Also, having stayed here on previous occasions I have commented about the low voltage during hot weather. Well, that hasn't changed. The first day here voltage was down to a critical stage for running A/Cs and possibly burning up other appliances. Recently a rally at the park during hot weather had to resort to running their generators to keep cool. Complaints to the County of Riverside about these problems are referred to the park management who act surprised about the electrical problems. I can assure you they are aware but electric to ignore it. Cool or moderate weather the park is great but if A/C weather is in the forecast, be aware.

We have stayed her on three other occasions and have had problems finding an adequate site for a big rig on each occasion. The sites are narrow gravel/dirt with cement patios. The electrical hookup boxes are older and taller than most which can cause a problem with slide-outs hitting them if not careful. They also have tall vent pipes about every other site which makes it difficult to extend slide outs. There are several trees which need trimming to prevent rubbing on the RV's. The utilities are fine with good electrical. All in all the staff was very friendly and allowed us to pick a site since the park was pretty empty. The park has good Interstate access and is close to shopping and restaurants. One highlight is their Saturday morning breakfast served in the club house. It is an all you can eat for $2/per person and very good.

This basically a large gravel/dirt parking lot with hookups. Pretty tight maneuvering for big rigs. It does have a nice pool and Wi-Fi which worked fine. Shopping close by. The park is okay for a short visit to St George but definitely overpriced.

This an okay park for a night or two stopover. Good electrical and the sites are level gravel. The pull through sites are adequate for big rigs to keep your tow hooked up if just staying the night. It's an older park and a bit tight maneuvering for big rigs. There is a small Flying J adjacent to the park with dedicated diesel/gas pumps for RV's. Lots of shopping within walking distance.

We stayed here for one night while passing through and found the park to be very convenient to the Interstate. The sites are level, gravel/dirt with good electrical. The staff was very friendly and the Wi-Fi connection good. We would stay here again.

The park is an ownership park and site rentals are by contacting an owner. The park is very nice with asphalt interior roads and level gravel sites. The park is next to the Pend Oreille River near the community of Usk, WA. Be careful with the directions to the park as your GPS will have you turn on Snow Berry Ln which is NOT correct. There is a large sign directing you where to turn. The park is rather remote and about 50 miles from Spokane, WA and Coeur d'Alene, ID. There are several sites for sale by owners.

The park is clean and sites are level asphalt. Also the interior roads are asphalt. The only reason it isn't rated higher is due to the electrical voltage. When the temperature is hot and A/C's are running the electrical drops pretty low to around 106 volts on 50 amp. The park is adjacent to the Suntides Golf Course both owned by the same people. Golf course is a nice layout. The park is located on a frontage road easily accessible from Hwy 12 and close to downtown Yakima.

We are Thousand Trails/NACO members and the price reflects our extended stay for a month after our initial two week stay using our membership. There are Phase I and Phase II sections. Phase I is the older area of the park with several trees. Phase II is an open area surrounded on the perimeter by large trees. Both sections have large sites with combination of pull-throughs and back-ins. The sites are either grass or gravel with the interior roads a combination of dirt/gravel. No Wi-Fi at the sites but satellite reception is good in Phase II. Not sure in Phase I due to the trees. The vast majority of sites have good 30amp electric and there is at least one 50amp site with a charge of $5 per day, whether your a member or not. The park closes Phase II for the season in October but Phase I is open year round. There are no frills except for a nice pool. We elected to extend our stay mainly due to the mild summer weather and would return.

Good park for a one or two day layover. Electrical and water pressure good and sites are level, dirt/gravel. The interior roads are asphalt paved in good repair. Easy access to and from I-5 and only minimal freeway noise.

This a relatively new RV park with level cement slabs for the RV. It is located south of I-5 about a mile away with good access roads. Trailer Life directory says to exit at Exit 79 but the best way is to exit at Exit 77 and follow the signs to the park. Good 50 amp electrical. Water pressure is high so a regulator is needed. The RV park is all back in adjacent to their golf course. If your a golfer they have a stay and play package which gives a reduced rate on golf and RV park. We stayed two nights and two rounds of golf for $133 which includes a golf cart to use during your stay and rounds of golf. They accept Good Sam. The staff are very friendly and helpful and gave the impression other amenities will be included in the future. There is a nice restaurant and roof top bar at the clubhouse. We would definitely stay here again.

This is pretty much a no frills park, small but still plenty of room for big rigs and room to park your tow at the site. Space between sites is not great but okay if you want to sit outside. It has good 50 amp electrical at each site but water pressure is only about 40 psi. As previously stated your in the middle of the fairgrounds but no activity while we were there over the 4th of July weekend. Wi-Fi was strong and you can hook up to cable TV at no extra charge. If you don't want to chance the 13'6" RR overpass on 53rd the park will route you to take Harrison Blvd. That route will take you right thru downtown and through an approx three block stretch with overhanging trees. Going W/B there is barely adequate height clearance with my radio antennas ticking some of the tree branches. However, going E/B the branches sag lower from their weight which could cause some issues with the limbs. A much better route is to take Walnut St. off Hwy 99 to the park. It's two lanes each direction with no obstructions. Walnut will end where Harrison crosses. Continue straight across Harrison onto 53rd and the park is a short distance ahead on the right.

As the previous reviewer stated the park is old and even though it says it's "big rig" friendly it really isn't. We have a 42' motorhome and maneuvering in the park is tight. The interior roadways and sites are all asphalt and mostly in disrepair and rough with some potholes. The sites will hold a big rig but parking a tow vehicle is difficult without blocking a portion of the roadway. If you want (need) 50amp service you need to tell them when checking in or making reservations otherwise most of the sites only have 30amp. The 50amp sites are referred to as "premium" sites. There are lots of trees so some sites make satellite reception iffy. We only stayed one night so can't comment on water pressure, etc. I really doubt if we would stay here again as a destination stop although overnight would work in a pinch.

This a small RV park on the south side of Bandon adjacent to Hwy 101. The sites are basically gravel and are level. Good 50amp electrical but the water pressure is too low (35psi). If you use a GPS and plug in the address you may find it will take you to the north side of Bandon about 6 miles away. Your best bet is to use Hwy 101 and the intersection of Beach Loop Rd as your way point. If going north on the 101 turn left on Beach Loop Rd with entrance to the park on the left about 1/2 blk west. It's not advisable (or legal for that matter) to turn into the entrance off Hwy 101 south of Beach Loop Rd unless your going southbound. The park really has no amenities but is a nice stopover for a day or two. We would definitely stay here again.

This is an adequate park for short stays to visit the area. Keep in mind it's the only RV park in Santa Rosa. The park is a large, gravel parking lot with 50amp electricity along the back row and the rest 30amp. Good voltage but water pressure is low (40 psi). The sites are long and level with large gravel. The sites aren't real wide so your neighbors are pretty close. Now the bad part. During the Sonoma County fair you will share one site with another RV which probably wouldn't allow for slide outs on at least one side and maybe both much less awnings. So, unless you don't mind being real cozy I would suggest checking before coming in to see if this is the case. The Trailer Life directions are good but the roads leading to the park are fairly narrow and big rigs will have to use the opposing lane when making sharp turns. I would suggest calling the RV park for possible alternate routes from Hwy 12 or Hwy 101. The park accepts Good Sam and Passport America and the price reflects Passport America rates.

It is an "okay" park and I will ditto the March 2011 entry regarding the sites. From what I can tell the park is pretty much in the middle of nowhere and not sure what there is to do in the immediate area. It's convenient to I-5 but definitely overpriced. We paid the Good Sam price with a $5 off coupon. The regular price without any discount is $54 per night.

I'll ditto the previous post in April 2011 although we didn't use the pool or spa, but it did look clean. The rest of the grounds were clean also. The park has numerous park models along with the RV sites. Since it is their off-season the park was relatively empty but can imagine it is pretty busy during the high season in Jan and Feb. The golf course looked interesting and appeared to be in good shape. Lots of water around so irrigation isn't a problem. Many sites will accommodate big rigs and we were in a pull-through with good electrical and water pressure. The sites are gravel/dirt so it can get a bit dusty in windy conditions. The park is in an isolated location away from El Centro and the Interstate so noise is not a problem. The price listed reflected Passport America. The directions listed in the Passport America book are incorrect. Trailer Life has the correct directions to the park.

This is an upscale gated RV community with individual lots for sale. Some lots have very nice Arizona Rooms. The sites are primarily level, gravel with cement patios which will accommodate any size rig. Very good electric and water pressure. Some lots also have cement slabs for parking your rig. Very nice spa and pool area with other nice amenities. During the season they have shows headlining well known celebrities. Since we were here during the "off" season the park was basically empty except for a few hangers on. The price per night reflects the off-season rate. We would definitely stay again.

This a clean, no frills park with dirt/gravel pull-throughs which are level. Electric and water are good, and the park is great for a couple of days stay. We find this park nicer than the other parks next to it. The price reflects the Good Sam rate. Easy access to I-10 whichever direction you're traveling. Not much to Deming although they have a great Winery nearby (St. Clairs) and is only about 30 miles to Palomas, Mexico. Don't forget your passports if you decide to go there. We will definitely stay again when passing through the area.

Just an O.K. park with long pull-through dirt sites. It's fine for a day or two but really overpriced for what you get. Electric and water are good, but the sites are close together. If the park is full you'll be pretty intimate with your neighbor, and it is doubtful if you can put your patio awning out. The park is several miles east of downtown El Paso, but there are lots of shopping and restaurants in the area. If you like Mexican food try Julio's Cafe which is recommended by the park and has great food and is reasonably priced. Also if westbound on I-10 and using a GPS it will direct you to exit at Exit 34. You are better served to exit at Exit 35 and use the Frontage road to RV Drive which leads to the park entrance.

Another park where I just don't understand the high ratings from the Trailer Life directory. The park has paved interior roads but the sites are dirt and pretty tight for big rigs. I had to ask our neighbor to move his dually truck so I could leave without a problem. The park is in an industrial area with the closest restaurant being at a truck stop about 2 miles away. As previously stated the majority of the park tenants are permanent residents, but I didn't notice any derelict RVs, and the park was clean. Not a whole lot of parks to choose from in this part of TX, but I think I will look around a little before returning.

The park is convenient to I-20 but be sure and follow the directions in Trailer Life or call the park, don't rely on your GPS. You have to exit on Exit 418 not 420 as our GPS advised, because the South Frontage road where the park is located is one-way eastbound. The price stated is with Good Sam discount. The staff at the park are very friendly and the park is OK. Has long level, pull-through sites with adequate electrical and good water pressure. They have sites that have cement slabs and other with gravel. I don't know how the cement slab sites are assigned as we had the gravel sites toward the back of the park. Could be for long term residents. Be sure and use a regulator as the water pressure is pretty high. Satellite and Verizon reception very good. There is freeway noise but we had no problem sleeping. Freeway close to Ft. Worth or Dallas. Good park for a day or two and we would return.

This a great RV Park and wished we could have stayed longer. All sites are pull-through with great electrical. Be aware that the water pressure is over 100psi. The rate is for Good Sam. Very friendly and helpful staff. Close to tourist sites and lots of golf courses in the area. We'll definitely stay here again and longer next time.

We stayed here for a week getting some work done on the motorhome. We had an appointment but if you don't you may be looking at a month or more of sitting around before they get to you. Not much going on in Red Bay but the golf course is a pretty good test of your skills. Only negative was the water pressure which was terrible, only about 35psi.

I'll ditto the other recent remarks and is a nice park for a few days layover. The price reflects a Good Sam discount. The sites are pretty close and not much of a use able patio area. Electricity was good but the water pressure was low. As previously stated it is a kids oriented park so if you don't want little ones running around this park may not be for you. Wi-Fi was adequate but spotty at times. We'd stay here again.

Stayed here for a couple of days to visit the tourist attractions in nearby Memphis, TN. The entrance into the park is pretty narrow which might make it interesting when two big rigs meet from opposite directions. Fortunately that never happened with us. The park itself is nice for watching the tug boats pushing huge barges up and down the Mississippi. The park is divided into at least two sections one of which has several trees which may or may not cause satellite reception problems. The other section is treeless and I think the nicer section of the park. No mosquitoes this time of the year and we didn't see any of the other critters they warn you about. Poison Ivy is apparently a hazard in the park but wouldn't know what it looks like if I saw it. Great electrical and water pressure good. The park would have gotten a higher rating if they controlled dust better. The interior roads are dirt/gravel, and most of dust ends up on your coach and tow vehicle. The sites are concrete and level. We'd definitely come back again.

If your traveling east or west on I-40 and need a place for the night then this is a good spot. The park is clean with long level gravel sites, most of which are pull-through. Great 50amp electric. Didn't hook up to water or sewer so can't comment. We didn't visit the area so don't know what activities they have other than probably water related since a huge lake, Lake Dardanell, is nearby. The listed rate is for Good Sam and might be a bit overpriced. If you visit their website and use the listed address to plug into your GPS you'll end up about a mile south of I-40 instead of about a mile north of I-40 where you need to be. The correct address for this park is 10 Outdoor Ct., Russellville, AR not the Lakefront Dr address. All in all we would stay here again when passing through.

We stayed here for three nights and the park is convenient to local attractions as well as Interstate 44 and 35. The park would have gotten a higher rating except for the fact it borders I-35 which, if your a light sleeper, could present problems. Also lots of grass which gets watered at least twice daily along with your RV. 50amp electrical was great as was the water pressure. Staff in the store were friendly and the store was well stocked with essentials and some RV supplies. If this is your first time through this part of the country be aware of Spring storms. They don't call it tornado alley for nothing. The lady in the office said last May a big storm came thru with large hail that caused considerable damage to RV's in the park.

This is a stopover park, not a destination park, and is located about 2 miles off the Interstate. Check out their website, it says it all. The price reflects a Passport America discount. The sites are level and gravel and 50 amp electrical was good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. A restaurant is within easy walking distance. Although there are RV parks closer to the Interstate the price is worth the 2 mile drive with no traffic noise.

Stayed here for one night on our way east. Pretty marginal park but fine for one night. Price reflects Passport America rate. Good electrical and didn't use water or sewer and site was level gravel. Very easy access to the Interstate. The sites are pretty close together, at least the three with 50amp sites, which makes it cozy with your neighbor next to you when your slides are out. We'd stay here again for the price and convenience. One other thing, we noticed a For Sale sign out front so it might be worth a call to see if their still in business.

We stayed here for 3 days in 105 to 110 degrees heat wave. Ran all three A/C's pretty much 24/7 and had no problems with the park voltage. In fact for the size of the park the voltage was consistently better than I've seen before, as was the water pressure. I'm not sure if you call the sites pull thrus or back ins. The office directs you to pull thru a site behind the one you will be occupying but if it's occupied, I assume backing in would be in order although that might be a little tricky due to the short ramp leading up to the site. The price reflects a special rate of staying two days and getting one free.

Stayed here again for two weeks and the price reflects Passport America on Monday through Thursday. To get the Passport America price you have to call the reservation line as they will not honor it if you reserve on line at their website. The new section of the park is in excellent condition and would have gotten a 10 if it wasn't for the same old nemesis: Low Voltage. At one point the park was probably 3/4 full and the voltage was barely minimal, if that, for operating A/C, refrig, etc. The temperature exceeded 100 plus on several days and I saw folks popping their breakers when trying to run their air on the low voltage. Since we spend a lot of time here I bit the bullet and bought a Hughes Autoformer which performed well in keeping the voltage where it should be. They are making a lot of improvements such as a water park and frisbee golf which is great but too bad they don't spend a little money on upgrading the electricity. The park employees are very nice and helpful with any problems they can solve.

Stayed here for a week and we don't have anything negative to say about this park. The staff and all other support personnel are extremely friendly and helpful. On arrival our site had a tree with branches hanging over the satellite dome not allowing a signal for the TV. We mentioned it to one of the staff and within minutes the landscaping crew was here to trim the offending branches. We travel in a 42 footer and had no problem with maneuvering within the park or into our space.

We have stayed here on several occasions and this time we stayed in the new Cottonwood section. Lots of green grass, level cement pads and all the amenities making it a first rate park. I will ditto the previous remarks from March. There is a large common area in the middle of the section providing kids with a place to play without intruding on the individual sites. The new section would have gotten a 10 except for the electrical voltage supply. When the park was not close to full, the electrical voltage was lower than expected for 50amp service. Over the Memorial Day weekend the park was near capacity and an electrical transformer blew leaving the park without electricity overnight. Edison company hopefully replaced the transformer with a larger capacity one which will handle the requirements of a full park. Time and the summer heat will tell. I would inquire about the electrical issue prior to making reservations during the hot summer months. The park still accepts Passport America in the older section but not in the new Cottonwood section. Overall, except for the electrical issue, a very pleasant stay.

You won't find a nicer state campground anywhere. I'll ditto the other reviewers regarding spaciousness. The only drawback is no sewer but if there was you would probably never have space available. There are nice accessible dump sites if needed and the 50 amp electrical is great. There are two separate campgrounds, Section A & Section B. "A" has a combination of electric and non-electric sites, whereas "B" has all electric sites. Lots of areas for hiking and bike riding just watch out for those slithery critters who also inhabit the area.

This park has gravel/dirt interior roads and RV sites. The sites are level with grass between sites which are nicely separated from your neighbor. It is located close to I-25 and near a Indian casino. There is also a 27-hole championship golf course nearby which is reasonably priced. The park does not accept reservations and it is on a first come, first serve basis. If you call ahead while enroute the office will let you know if there are available sites but won't guarantee anything. The park is close to Albuquerque and everything it has to offer. All in all a nice park for a short stay. Only real drawback is the close proximity of railroad tracks but it did not present a real problem with sleeping, etc.

Of the three RV parks in the Farmington area this is by far the best. It's a relatively small park but has adequate space between sites. It will handle big rigs with no problem. The only drawback is there is only 30 amp available which during the cooler weather is really not a problem. The park is kept in a clean condition and the sites are asphalt and level. We would definitely return for a one or two day stay while traveling through.

We stayed here in May 2009 and they still have many of the same problems as stated back then. The biggest problem this time was extremely low electrical voltage to the sites: dropped below 104 volts on several occasions and the park was nowhere near full. Had to run generator for A/C due to triple digit temperatures for almost a week. The new (Cottonwood) section of the park is "still" not open supposedly due to a sewer problem. This new section is really nice when (if) it finally does open. The rates for the new section will be higher but will still offer Passport America except for weekends.

We've camped here several times mainly because of its proximity to the City of Riverside. This time I was very disappointed. The park was a dust bowl and the "rules" were arbitrarily enforced by the park rangers. Examples are the number of people allowed on a site and the lack of speed enforcement of vehicles entering the campground area. They currently have additional RV sites under construction and they were supposed to be available in May. Since it's a Riverside County Park who knows when the completion date will be. Dust was the major issue which could be somewhat controlled by watering the roadways a couple of times a day. This is the first time we have been uncomfortable in this park.

The park is easy access from I-15 or Hwy 395. It is kept clean but the sites are close together on the hookup side and narrow. The sites are gravel and level with the patio area cement. Ok for overnight or short stay although there appear to be several permanent residents. Wi-Fi was adequate if you are close to the office, otherwise marginal. We've stayed here before, mainly because of the convenience to the major highways.

Nice park for overnight or extended stay. Dirt/gravel sites but level and can easily accommodate most rigs without unhooking toads. Each site has orange trees which certain times of the year are loaded with oranges. Easy access to Hwy 58.

As other reviewers have said the park is clean and well maintained. Whoever designed it probably didn't do much RVing. The pull through won't accommodate leaving your tow vehicle hooked up if you plan on hooking up to sewer. Also the patio is situated in an odd location near the back of the coach which is also across from your neighboring site's sewer hookup. The sites are concrete but just wide enough to accommodate the width of a motorhome. This requires that you walk through their planter area to access the storage bays or patio area. Otherwise a good overnight park.

I will ditto the other observations about the parks cleanliness and friendly staff. The park is very nice overall and the only complaint I can voice is the sewer hookup location on the site. If you are just there for the night and don't particularly want to unhook your tow you have a problem unless you have a 30' long sewer hose. The sewer is located at the very back of each site and the electric and water about midway.

The park is conveniently located close to I-5. The sites are cement and level with pull throughs and back-ins. If you hook up to sewer in a pull through you may have to unhook your tow unless you have a pretty long sewer hose. The hookups are near the back of the site. If they have WIFI it's not very strong as I couldn't connect to anything. There are small trees between most sites which are more an inconvenience than anything else. They either rub your slideouts or prevent opening your patio awning. It was fairly warm on the day we stayed, low 90s, and found that the electrical was lower than it should be for the temperature. Overall it is a nice RV Park and could be used for long term stays.

Very nice and clean park and the only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because there is no patio area or table next to the site. There are grass areas on either side but not really designed to sit outside. The sites are level cement with paved interior roads. The park is big rig friendly and is easy to maneuver. Very good electricity and water pressure. The park WIFI is excellent. There is easy access to I-5 with shopping nearby. It is reasonably priced for what it offers and we would definitely stay here again.

Very nice park with lots of trees and grass to enjoy and easy access from I-84. It is right next to the Columbia River with easy access if you have a boat or other water toys. The park has paved interior roads which are quite narrow but no problem for big rigs to maneuver. The sites are ample sized with easy back-in spots. The pull-thrus are the parallel parking type but again will handle most any size rig without difficulty. Great electricity and water pressure. We would definitely stay here again. Reservations are suggested as it gets pretty busy with families during the summer.

The park is very clean and well maintained with lots of trees. Paved interior roads with gravel sites. The sites have considerable slope back to front and the utility hookups are located at the very back of the site. If you are towing and don't want to unhook you probably won't be able to connect to anything but electricity. Also if you stay hooked up leveling is tricky because of the slope. Otherwise a nice park for a day or possibly a weeks stay.

Over priced for what you get but the park is adequate for a one or two day stay. The sites will accommodate any length vehicle and tow and are spaced far enough apart to be comfortable. The sites are gravel and level. Good electric and water pressure and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We were there on the 4th of July and they were helpful in pointing out activities going on in town. The entry to the park is accessible via a one lane roadway which is actually a two way street. Makes it real interesting when someone is coming the opposite direction.

Nice enough park but questionable as to whether it rates Trailer Life's generous rating. It sets on the side of a hill that overlooks the surrounding terrain with pretty views. The sites are long but require some maneuvering to get level due to the slope of the terrain. The employees are very courteous and helpful and the site has good electric & water pressure. If you stay here don't, I repeat, don't bother to wash your rig or tow vehicle before arriving because both will be filthy before you get to the office to check in. The gravel/dirt drive to the park has some washboard but not too rough, just dusty. It's not the most convenient access from I-90 either, but is close to tourist activities in the area.

This is a membership park in a beautiful setting in a valley between Hwy 16 & Hwy 79. The park is close to all the tourist attractions and plenty of things to do in the park if you elect not to travel once there. The park is divided into different sections, one for pet lovers and non-pet lovers. The only drawback this time of the year is the afternoon thunderstorms which can be quite exciting. We stayed here for a week under our RPI membership.

I ditto the statements of the previous rater in May '08. No puddles in the driveway but the potholes were still there. Nothing has changed since May and the park is in really run down condition. When I tried to level with my jacks one of them sunk into the dirt. We packed up and went into Lusk to BJ's Campground which is nothing to write home about but was paradise compared to Prairie View. All the parks we have stayed at in Wyoming are very over priced for what you get.

There are not a lot of parks to choose from in Southern Wyoming along I80. This one is a big, flat, dirt/gravel parking lot with FHU and picnic tables at each site. It is actually good for a one or two night stopover park but not a destination park. When we arrived the office was closed and we picked our site. We planned on some outside activities but out of nowhere popped up a thunder storm and stiff wind, which is probably typical for this country at this time of the year. Easy access to I-80 and fuel stops close by.

This is definitely a one nighter type park. Has parallel parking type cement sites and FHU with good 50 amp. The particular site we got had the water turned off from a "main water leak" which apparently was only limited to my site and the one next to me. It's close to the Interstate with easy access. The entrance to the park is a bit tricky and you register at the store next to the gas islands. Overall the employees were very friendly. Also has a nice creek running next to the park.

The park is relatively small, but has everything you need for a nice stay. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and the small store at the park is well stocked with items you may need, including some RV supplies. There are shaded sites and long pull thru sites that are out in the open allowing unobstructed satellite reception. They also have cable TV for a fee, and their Wi-Fi is only barely adequate. This area hosts an annual quad-runner rally so if you plan on being here this time of the year make a reservation early. We were fortunate to get the only site left for one night. They also accept most all discounts, i.e. Good Sam, etc.

Large park with ample space between sites. Due to the close proximity to a dairy farm, flies can be a problem during certain times of the year, but we did not have a problem during this stay. The canals running through the park are home to some nice sized catfish. They also permit washing of RV's and autos on your site. Nice place to stay, although limited to Thousand Trail members or RPI members.

Nice park with lots of cement. They offer Passport America discounts which makes it worthwhile for a day or two stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

What a great place to spend a couple of weeks. I ditto what the other camper said in May 2008 about the park. There are two campgrounds A & B. "A" seems to be a little smaller with non-electricity sites and "B" has larger sites and all have 50 amp electric and water. Dump stations are convenient and overall the park is kept up very nicely.

As stated by other reviewers the park is readily accessible from I-40 and capable of handling any big rig. The management is trying to keep the grass green but having problems due to the drought in this area. The Wifi is weak and hard to access. This is a nice park for an overnight or couple of day visit. They honor Passport America but only with cash or check payment.

We stayed here on our way to Branson, from Nashville. The park is a bit deceiving, and appears from the entrance to be tight and small. Actually, it is easy to maneuver a big rig, and they have a limited number of pull thru sites capable of handling any big rig, and keep your tow hooked up if your there just overnight. They only take cash or check as payment, no credit cards. Satellite is available from the pull thru sites, but questionable anywhere else because of the trees. The directions to the park off Hwy 60 are a bit confusing, but once you figure out that what they call an "outer road" is actually a frontage road for Hwy 60, it becomes easy to locate the park entrance. We'd definitely stay here again.

I will have to ditto the reviewer from Dec. 2007. After some bad flooding this Spring where the park was completely under water, it has been restored to great shape and still being fine tuned. The nearby Branson Landing Mall is terrific and within easy walking distance. Great place to stay with easy access off Hwy 65, but make sure you follow the directions from their website.

Very nice and clean RV Park. Most sites are long enough to accommodate big rigs and are gravel/dirt but level. Not all sites have 50 amp but the 30 amp service is good. The prices per night are much more reasonable than the other two parks close by which charge over $20 more per night with no more amenities other than cable TV. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice park for a stop over. They have long pull-thrus so you don't have to unhook. Sites are dirt but level. Right next to Hwy 60, but no problem with road noise. RR tracks nearby, but not an issue for sleeping. Overall quiet park, and would stay again.

Happy Trails is a seniors only RV Resort. Children can stay at the park for a week or two. The park has an abundance of activities to enjoy. Two large swimming pools and four spas. There are tennis courts, pickleball courts, pool tables, championship golf course, quilting and sewing clubs, ceramic and lapidary as well as a wood working shop. Close to shopping and 35 miles N/W of Phoenix. After January the park is very busy with snowbirds and professional baseball spring training in the area. There are RV lots interspersed throughout the park and have individual owners. Many lots are for rent on a daily, weekly, monthly or seasonal basic. The monthly price is approximately $550 to $600/month depending on whether the renter or the owner pays the electricity. If you like lots of sun during the winter and are a physically active individual, this would be an ideal location. Just go to the web site listed and check out the list of lots for rent.

Nice County Park with 11 or 12 full hookup sites and some pull through sites with water & electric. Ample space between full hookup sites but a little tight between sites on pull through. Many shade trees and lots of grass. The interior roads and sites are basically dirt/gravel. The sites are level but the roads are a bit bumpy. There are a couple of fishing lakes next to the RV park with a nice view of the lake from several sites. We found the staff friendly and were maintaining the park in good condition. The park offers Passport America discounts during the week with regular prices on the weekend. Well worth the price. Also the park is close driving distance to the City of Riverside. It is suggested that reservations be made as far in advance as possible up to 7 months as certain dates fill up fast.

Nice RV park with many shaded sites. Pads are asphalt and relatively level. Only drawback is the sites are pretty close together making it cozy with your neighbor. They have pull through and back in sites. The park is located close to town and also a reasonable driving distance to Mammoth Mountain and fishing lakes and streams.

This park would be great if all you wanted to do is fish Eagle Lake. No other activities in the area. The sights are dirt/gravel with pine trees as shade. The sights are relatively level and did not appear to have a lot of "big rig" sites. I thought Trailer Life's rating was a bit generous considering you only have a partial view of the lake. There is a nice restaurant on site and WIFI is available at a fee of around $5.00 per day. Cell phone service is non existent if you have Verizon as it is an Analog only area. The park is located 35 miles north of Susanville at an elevation of 5000 plus feet. Hwy 139 is a good, although somewhat narrow, highway which rises to 5400+ feet with a 6% winding grade before Susanville heading south.

All in all this is a good campground for a short stay to see the area or visit the close by casino. The pull thru sites will barely fit a 40 foot motorhome and have to unhook any tow vehicle to fit. Some back in sites have grass next to the sites. The directions to the park are not the best so pay close attention and turn where the sign indicates the entrance to the Cultural Center. Otherwise, you will make a long detour around the block as there is no room to backup or turn around. The park is located about 25 miles south of the City of Yakima on Hwy 97.

Great RV Park next to a lake. Several pull in spots allowing an unrestricted view of the lake and boating activity on the water. Next door is a nice golf driving range. The RV sites are level and asphalt with lots of grass next to the sites. Very friendly and helpful staff. The park is located directly behind Costco and close to other shopping and downtown area. This is a great stopover or destination park.
