Toutle River RV Resort is a very nice park which is relatively wide open; therefore, big rig and satellite dish friendly. The people that work in the park are super nice and friendly and have always been accommodating. The store located at the check in area has just about everything you might need with a huge variety of snacks and movies to rent. The laundry facilities are first rate and the swimming pool is real nice and is open from May – September and heated to just the right temp. There is even a dog shower and grooming area and in the same area there is a place where the dogs can socialize while the owners do their own relaxing and socializing. This park is very centrally located for visits to the Mount Saint Helen’s Visitor Center, Silver Lake, and the August Grand National Championship Flat Track Motorcycle Race at the famous Castle Rock TT track. There is also great fishing on the Toutle and Cowlitz River and just East of Castle Rock the fishing and boat rental at Silver Lake is really hard to beat! A quick 10 mile drive south gets you to Longview, WA which is a larger city and you can even cross the bridge there into Oregon and visit many small towns along the southern shore of the Columbia River. The RV Park is situated between railroad tracks and the I5 freeway so there certainly is not total peace and quiet; however, if you like the sound of trains then this is your place. I have stayed here a few times and the occasional train for me is fun to hear and watch and the freeway is just light background noise. All things considered I heartily recommend this park and if you like an evening fire make sure to ask for a site with a fire pit. I stayed 1 week which is reflected in my nightly rate.
Out of respect for the owners I will review this park; however, I am hesitant because I want to keep it all for myself! After 50 years of RVing/camping I have to say this park is in my top 5 and right now I can’t remember the other 4! The owners are as nice as can be, and the visitors in the park are nice, quiet, and friendly. We could only stay one night since we were headed home after 3 months on the road. Luckily I only live an hour and a half away so I just found my summer getaway spot! Our site was number 50, I believe, which was near the end of the pull-through row. We were facing two forks of the Willamette River coming together with nice rapids, and I suspect there are fish galore but didn’t have time to explore. Water pressure was perfect; sewage, electricity and Wi-Fi is exactly as you would expect . There is a nice store, and at the end of the day, anything you could want or need is found in the park.
Merrill Mobile Manor & RV Park is a nice little find when traveling on 39 north of the California border and south of Klamath Falls, Oregon. There aren’t a lot of choices once you are north of Tulelake, CA, and South of Klamath Falls. This park is predominately full time folks, yet has a few open spaces and 4 pull-throughs. It is gravel and level and has 50 amp power, sewage, and water with plenty of pressure. It is located in a very nice little town but is clearly a no frills park. If I only rated the owner and full time residents it would get an easy 10; however, overall I have to give it a 7 but would stay here again when passing through if for no other reason than the really nice people in the park. I left my tow car running for 2 hours since I forgot to turn it off and one of the residents knocked on my door and reminded me the car was still running. Another young lady resident talked to me about my work with the Patriot Guard Riders since I had some identifiers on my motorcycle. I have a 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. We were able to pull right on through without having to disconnect the car. The coach with the Motorcycle is equal to a 45 foot coach so plenty of room for everything. Basically easy in and easy out and right in the middle of town for a nice walk to small quaint shops. Again, really nice friendly people, no frills but meets our needs.
Fort Beale RV Park is a great place to spend a few days as we did as we were traveling between Tucson and Las Vegas. The park has very easy access right off I-40. The office staff was quite delightful. Our spot was quite wide and long enough for our 45 feet of RV, motorcycle, and tow. There were some nice evergreen trees on the sites but easy access for satellite with nothing in the way. Everything considered this is a great park and a welcome site after driving 300 miles north from Tucson. I highly recommend and would like to stay here longer next time.
Bordertown Casino and RV Park is 15 miles north of Reno on Hwy 395. They have just about everything you need for a few day stop. There is a store, gas station, casino, restaurant, etc. The Park Host is very friendly and engaging and makes sure you have all the coupons you’ll need for a nice dinner and a little gaming. Our spot was very wide, level, paved and long enough for 45' of RV plus tows. Satellite worked perfect with no obstructions. This is a beautiful RV park in a beautiful area of the country. The casino and restaurant are right next door to the RV Park. I will stay here again in a heartbeat and hopefully for more than one night.
Whiskey flats is a great RV park and clearly a welcome site after driving 315 miles from Las Vegas in 35 MPH winds. We only stayed here one night, but I would like to return and stay a few days in this beautiful area. Our spot was very wide and long enough for our 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. We were able to pull right on through without having to disconnect the car. The coach with the Motorcycle is equal to a 45 foot coach so plenty of room for everything. In the morning we just pulled right out and onto the highway and headed for Reno. Very easy in and out! The park is quiet with very friendly staff and RVers. The sites are flat with concrete pads. Can’t go wrong here!
Las Vegas RV Resort is a very nice park with all the amenities and only a few miles from the strip. It is within walking distance to Sam’s Town which has gaming, great food, etc. So if you would rather avoid the hustle and bustle of the strip I heartily recommend Sam’s Town. The Las Vegas RV Resort has wide enough roads and long enough spaces for our 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. We were able to pull right on through without having to disconnect the car. The coach with the motorcycle is equal to a 45 foot coach so plenty of room for everything. We were escorted to our site which is always nice. Our DirecTV Satellite worked perfectly with no obstructions. The Tengo Internet worked fine and was fairly consistent and quick. Of course if you have an Apple device (iPhone, iPod, iPad) you will have to call Tengo and give them the MAC address of your device which is found under General – About – Wi-Fi Address. This is necessary because Apple devices redirect to www.apple.com instead of www.tengointernet.com. This is a mild inconvenience, but is not a show stopper nor the fault of the park. We stayed here for a week; therefore, our rate of $27 is a weekly rate. Next time I’m in Vegas this is where I am staying!
Rincon Country West RV Resort is a perfect park in Tucson for rigs of all sizes and plenty of room for towed vehicles and other toys. The price of $21 per night is the rate for our one month stay. I extended a few more days and I got the monthly rate for those days too. That is how it should be but many times is not the result. When we arrived I told them I have a 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. I explained I used my motorcycle for my Patriot Guard Riders armed forces veterans' missions. I always tell the office staff about my motorcycle and I’ve never been charged for an extra vehicle which I really appreciate. I stayed in space 1104 and the only thing I would do differently is ask for a North facing site instead of South. My power awning was broken so no awning in 80 plus weather everyday and facing South is not good, but at the end of the day I’ll be returning to Portland golden brown! My fault not their fault and if I had been willing to move I am real sure they would have given me another site. There is a beautiful pool and 2 spas and lots of room at the site, wonderful friendly people and great water pressure so you’ll probably want to have your pressure regulator ready. I was leaving Easter Sunday so I went to pick up a package at the RV Post Office on Good Friday; However, the post office closed early that day, but another person retrieving his mail from his box, spoke into his mail box and asked if anyone was in the post office to help me. As it turns out the post master lady was still there and retrieved my package. This is what you can expect at Rincon Country West…Fellow RVers that are helpful and resort staff of the same helpful mindset. If I didn’t have 6 kids in Portland Oregon I’d live here full time! Finally I want to make sure I mention all the activities for your enjoyment. Trust me this is the tip of the iceberg. One day there’ll be an Indian food truck, next day German, next day Mexican, next day something else. At night there will be concerts, free movies or some other entertainment. All day long there are classes and camaraderie for all people covering virtually every hobby. You can partake in as much as you wish or as little. The office staff and the big rig friendly layout of the RV park make this the perfect place to stay in Tucson and I can’t wait to visit next year!
Kofa Mountain RV Park in Quartzsite, Arizona is one of the few places to stay in Quartzsite and is not a resort by any stretch. However it is nice enough for a couple of days or more and the people that run it are very nice and accommodating. We arrived about 6pm in February 2013 and the office was closed but the maintenance man saw us drive in and immediately opened the office and checked us in. We asked for a pull-through which we received for $25 a night cash only deal. The streets are a bit narrow for a 40 foot coach with toad but clearly are maneuverable with a little care. The front entry gates are quite narrow for larger coaches so be careful coming in. Once you come through the entry gates the office is directly in front of you. Our site was gravel which is typical for this area. We had full hookups and relatively easy in and out. All in all the RV parks are limited in this area but we would stay here again since it met our short term needs.
Anaheim Resort RV Park is a perfect park for rigs of all sizes and plenty of room for towed vehicles and other toys. The price of $44 per night is the rate for our two week stay including taxes. When we arrived I told them I have a 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. . I always tell the office staff about my motorcycle and I’ve never been charged for an extra vehicle which I really appreciate. I asked for a site with very few trees and access to the Southern sky for our satellite and a site large enough for our coach, car and motorcycle. They gave me site 326 which was just perfect! There is a beautiful pool and spa and lots of room at the site, wonderful friendly people and great water pressure so you’ll probably want to have your pressure regulator ready. The Disneyland shuttle stops by every 25 minutes and there is a kiosk at the shuttle stop for purchasing shuttle tickets. The office staff and the big rig friendly layout of the RV Park make this the perfect place to stay in Orange County. Over the past 15 years I’ve stayed at many parks in Orange County and none can hold a candle to Anaheim Resort RV Park. Have fun and enjoy all there is to do in Orange County.
Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground is a great place to stay with plenty of large sites for big rigs and all the amenities I need including propane. The $63 per day rate reflects the weekly rate including Tax. They gave me a certificate for a free night which we immediately used so instead of 7 days we stayed 8 which brought the rate down to $55 per night taxes included. When we arrived I told them I have a 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. The front desk gave us a choice of 3 sites that would meet our needs of room for our big rig and clear view of the southern sky for our satellite TV. A very friendly park host drove us around in a golf cart to see the 3 sites. Talk about service and genuinely caring that your stay is as perfect as can be. We selected our perfect site. They didn’t charge me extra for my motorcycle even though it is an additional vehicle. There is a beautiful pool and spa. Tons of room at the site, wonderful friendly people and great water pressure so you’ll probably want to have your pressure regulator ready. As an aside we needed some roof repair and headlight switch repair and Bob’s RV Repair provided mobile service to the RV Park. They did a great job reasonably priced and convenient. Can’t wait until next year when we’ll stay here again.
Wine Country RV Resort in Paso Robles is a ten if I’ve ever seen one. The $60 per day rate reflects the weekly rate including 10% Transient Occupancy Tax with a 10% discount for Good Sam. When we arrived I told them I have a 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. I explained I used my motorcycle for my Patriot Guard mission where we honor veterans including parades, funeral services, escorting the deceased, welcome home and send off missions. The front desk was very interested in the Patriot Guard Riders and put us in the best site; a 92 foot site at the top of the RV Park where the view was spectacular. They didn’t charge me extra for my motorcycle even though it is an additional vehicle. There are beautiful pools and spas and one spa dedicated to adults. At the end of our stay we were able to fill up our propane at the park which is a real nice amenity. Normally we stay in Pismo Beach about 45 minutes south but I wanted warmer drier weather and sure glad I did and this is where I’ll stay from now on when visiting the central coast. Tons of room at the site, wonderful friendly people and great water pressure so you’ll probably want to have your pressure regulator ready. Have fun and enjoy the wineries and old town Paso Robles!
The I-5 RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino is a great place to stay for a few days. RV Camping in this area of California is a bit limited so having this park right off I5 is great. The sites are level on gravel with some nice landscaping between the sites. After registration we were told to pick our own site and have fun. I like this approach because I want to make sure we get satellite reception and it allows you to decide which way you want to face. We faced south west so we got plenty of nice sunshine and beautiful sunsets. In addition to a nice campsite you can also get a discount on golf and even utilize the air conditioned pet day care for free! All in all this is a nice park with easy in and out for our 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. The staff is very friendly and helpful too. The water pressure is very good so you’ll probably want to have your pressure regulator ready.
The 7 Feathers RV Park is on the west side of I5 and is nice as can be. The park has virtually every amenity needed, as well as, a shuttle to the casino on the east side of the freeway and a gas station with gas and diesel competitively priced. When you arrive and finish registration you are escorted to your site by a very friendly person in a golf cart. The sites are very wide and long and easily handled our 38 foot Monaco with a motorcycle lift holding my Triumph and our CR-V tow car. If you only want to dry camp you can stay at the original RV area on the east side of I5 on the north end of the casino. Also you can stay in the parking lot at the south end of the casino. The dry camping area is first come first served. Plenty of security guards roving the areas so very safe. The staff is warm and welcoming and always nice and helpful as can be.
