What a wonderful national park! We came on Sunday and the visitors center said there were about a dozen sites available at Jumbo rocks. We went directly to the campground to claim a site and found many more were available. It is in the heart of the park with a ton of beautiful trails and scenery a short distance away. Just the campground itself is great, with the large bolders all around the sites. We found a spot to fit our 25' trailer and parked the truck beside it. These spots have 2 together so anything much longer would not fit. Spots generally are small as they cater to tent camping but there were many rv's staying there. Next time though we would pay for 2 spots so that we are guaranteed the room to hook up when we leave. No problems this time as the guy who took the spot next to use just needed to park his truck there so we had room. I would love to stay there again as it is a jewel of a park.
FIrst off, I called for a reservation and message said to email. So, I emailed, but never got a reply or confirmation. Then I called to make sure we had a spot but never got a call back. Other reviews said they were late in calling back so we took a chance and went anyway. When we arrived no one was in the office but a lady ran out and met us at the car. She had us on the list but said "most people don't show up, so we don't open the office". Gee, if you don't send a confirmation its no wonder! She took us to the so-called premium sites, behind the gate. It's a mile or so down a dirt road in an all dirt section with run down sites. Uneven, bumpy sites with stumps sticking up for electric and water. Broken down picnic tables and shacks that I have no idea why they were there. Never set foot in the bathrooms so don't know if they were working or not. We were the only ones back there. These sites are more expensive and advertised as beside the "lake". The lake turns out to be 2 dried up algae covered holes in the ground. Needless to say the bugs were around. The only reason I give this 1 star is the park is on a ranch that is on very beautiful land. It's quiet in the back area and you can hear / see coyotes at night. I think the owners have no money to keep this place up, which is unfortunate. They should charge a lot less money!
First, my reservation was lost, so I should have taken that as a sign to find a new park. They said they were changing their system but managed to find us a new spot. I give this the lowest rating because despite calling it a "resort" it is anything but. Large parking lot with gravel, no grass anywhere except next to the pool. Dogs are allowed but there is not a stitch of grass to walk them on, and they ask you take them outside the park onto the main road. Why allow them at all then? The spots are all back in, and extremely tight where we were. Only saving grace was it backed up to the wall with some shade from the park next door, otherwise we would be baking in the Palm Springs hot sun all day. The spots are so tight we could not open our awnings. Thank goodness we did not have any slide outs or we would not fit. Pool is small and no shade. Overpriced for what you get, even with the Passport discount. Will not be returning to the park.
We stayed at Rincon East in Tucson. Beautiful park with lovely landscaping all around. Most of the park is for snowbirds and permanent residents living in park models, but several people came over to talk with us and tell us about the park. The office was welcoming. Despite what a previous review said, they are fine with dogs. Just pick up after them and walk them outside the gate. Just like any other park. We stayed in the row next to the gate so it was not an issue and even if we were farther away, its a short walk. The sites are even concrete and easy to navigate assuming you can back up your rig. I would like to come back and stay for a longer time to take advantage of the numerous activities they offer.
Stayed one night while traveling. Management was friendly and welcoming. Had a spot right in first row next to clubhouse and laundry, so it was convenient to everything. Pool looked nice but too cold to test out in January. Most of the park is full of snow birds and permanent residents some of whom were not very friendly, but for one night it was OK. Very clean and safe, but no grass to speak of. Dog park was all rocks as was the landscaping all around. I prefer more grass than desert landscape and would stay at another park next time.
Host was very nice and welcoming. Stayed in January so there were not many others here, just 1 or 2 permanent residents who were quiet. Stayed on the grass section with full hookups that worked well, cable TV was good. Didn't hear much noise from the main road just above the park. Would stay here again if coming through this area again, as there are not many other places around here.
Nicely landscaped, very clean sites and park, lots of trees and privacy between sites. Only stayed 1 night so did not use the clubhouse or other amenities, but this is a higher end park that would be great to stay in for a month or season. Close to 1-10 but did not hear much highway noise at night. Nice dog park with grass and a nice lily pond and fountain. Would stay again for a longer time period. Lot of snowbirds here during the winter months.
We stayed overnight while traveling west so it was fine for one night only but I would not stay longer. No sewer access and no TV reception even with an antenna was a negative. It is a very quiet campground (in January) being on the river, and five miles from the highway. We had a spot on grass backing up to the river, but very close to other RVs. So close you could hear the people in the next motorhome. Not much room to park your car either. Most of the RVs there were permanent summer residents that were not being used, just parked. The Passport America discount does not apply on weekends, so arriving on Friday was full price, and not worth it. I imagine the summer months would be really busy and noisy with permanent residents.
Friendly owners welcomed us and showed us the site. Roads are not paved but not a problem unless it rains, which made it very messy. Sites are fairly spaced out and park was empty when we camped so it was nice and quiet. Brick patio by our site and lots of room around. Good stopping point if you are traveling on 1-10 and would stay here again.
This is far from a resort. Sure, it has a lake all the way in the back and was clean but I would call it a new parking lot with a small patch of grass at each site, sitting next to an RV storage lot. We stayed overnight so they put us up front right by the gate, saying it was the last spot left, but there was a full row of empty sites on the side. The back section was full of permanent residents with a constant flow of loud pick up trucks going in and out all night. The main road is very noisy with a lot of traffic. Would not stay here again.
Great state park on the gulf with small number of RV spots. Stayed in January, off season so it was quiet. I wonder what its like in summer though. We had a huge concrete site right next to the bath house and laundry facilities. Picked up local TV with the antenna. Everything is close by, and you can drive a half mile to the gulf beach. I would like to stay in again if return to the area.
Nice RV park in close proximity to 1-10. Not many choices in this area, as we found out after going to a few others that were dumpy. This is a nice RV park with roomy, pull through spots. The park was clean and easy to navigate through, and had a dog walk area close by our site. Would stay again if in the area.
Old park with terrible roads full of potholes, and a lot of perms in the back section. Stayed in a pull through spot right behind the pool and office, that had a concrete pad and brick patio area. The park is in fair to poor condition and way overpriced. No real grass to walk the dog, mostly broken pavement everywhere. Would not stay here again.
Overall, a nice park. We stayed 10 days in season and it was very quiet. Location is convenient to the interstate and local shopping. Lots of maintenance people always picking up garbage, recycling and watching the activity in the park. Only downside was I thought it was a bit overpriced for not having cable TV. Our antenna did pick up the local channels though.
Small city park just outside Grants Pass. Very narrow road through the park and spaces are very tight. In June, it was very rough looking. Not much grass between spots and mostly weeds and dirt. Picnic tables are old. There are grassy areas around the park but not next to RV spots. Curved spots were a bit tricky to get out of when we left. River access is down the road. Doubt I would stay here again.
Very tightly spaced park. We had a lot of trouble backing into the space due to the amount of large trucks hanging out into the narrow road. Spaces are spaced apart with grass between but overall felt very crowded. Lots of families everywhere with lots of kids running around. There were toys everywhere. Owners were friendly. Good spot near the lake and close to Joseph which is a wonderful town, but we probably not stay here again.
Beautiful county park, part of the Linn County parks. Well maintained grassy park with easy access to the reservoir. Wonderful spaced RV spots, picnic tables and trees for shade. We had a wonderful show from the squirrels living behind our spot. The park is just gorgeous and not crowded at all when we visited. Would stay a week here next time.
Very large park near Astoria. We had booked 2 nights here but only stayed one. The initial drive into the park leads you to believe its a huge grassy campground, but quite different at the loop we were in. It was very crowded and we were sandwiched between loud noisy all-night party groups. Spaces in our section were extremely close, all mud and weeds, and very noisy. Was eaten alive by mosquitos the minute I got out of the car. The area is very marshy and buggy. Would not stay here again.
Another wonderful Oregon State Park. Beautiful green shady park setting with huge spaces between RVs. We love this park. The train runs by but it's not too loud. Easy back in spaces. Could stay here for a week and be very happy.
Very clean and well maintained park next to a casino. We did not go to the casino but stayed one night here while traveling. Very easy back in spaces, but is really a cement parking lot with grassy areas all around. Next to the golf course. Plenty of places to walk the dog on grass. Laundry was clean. Would stay here again if in the area.
Nice older park with pull through spots. Spaces were a little narrow with grass between but it didn't cause a problem to get in. Wi-Fi worked well and there is a good laundry and store on site. There was a row of permanents across from us but they were quiet. Friendly staff and maintenance workers. Good location near Tillamook. Would stay here again for a longer time.
This was one of our favorite parks in all of Oregon. Found it by accident after deciding not to stay at the John Day Fairgrounds which had loud motorcycle gathering. This is a great park. Huge grassy spaces, very far apart with lush green grass and landscape. We felt like we were on someone's private property. Well maintained and spaces were long enough for bigger rigs.Walkway next to the river. We were next to the river and did not have any bug problems to speak of. Really loved this park and if we are in the area again would stay a week.
Nice older campground. Spaces have grass between and picnic tables so its not too close together. Well maintained park with good laundry, pool and store. Some perms across the way from our row but were quiet. Internet cost extra and not worth the money, as it did not work half the time. Pool was clean.
Mostly a cement parking lot with a little bit of shrubs between spaces. Fairly tight spots and no picnic tables. We had to barbecue on the ground. There was a pet run that was a very narrow weedy area off to the side. No grass to speak of for dog walking. Mostly all pavement. Wi-Fi worked well. Owners are nice, but doubt I would stay there again.
Small beautiful state park with access to the ocean. It is very green and park-like with large space between RV's. The park wasn't very crowded when we visited so it felt very private. There is a access path to the ocean, and lots of place to walk in the park.
We loved this park. Right on the river, and our spot was the last one on the isle with a direct river view. Park is small with some permanents but overall a nice clean, well maintained park. Very friendly owners who live on site. They were really nice and helpful, even pointing out the different birds on the river. The walk to the river is lovely, green and lush, and you feel like you are in a different world. Would love to go back for a longer stay next time.
