Nice rugged campground in Lava Beds NM. Dry camping. They don’t take reservations, but I was told on the phone that the campground was not busy, except for holidays - when we arrived in the late afternoon, on a Tuesday, we were lucky to find a spot for our RV! The campground was already ¾ full, and more people were arriving. Most sites are geared towards tents, but many people had trailers, pop-ups, and few other motorhomes, too. The south entrance road to the park is in poor condition, but passable. The lava caves are fun to explore, and the park people were very helpful. If you don’t have flashlights, the park service will lend them to you. Some of the caves are quite cold inside. We would stay here again.
Beautiful, well maintained campground with lots of big trees. Very friendly staff. All utilities worked. Most sites are a bit tight for a big rig, but not bad. Wi-Fi available for a fee. I was told it was not very good though. Verizon was very weak. Didn’t use it, but the pool was popular. Great launching off point for local hiking and exploring. Don’t miss Burney Falls (about 45 mins away). Would stay here again.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Park is very clean and modern, with paved level sites. Owners are very friendly and helpful. This park is big rig friendly. Located right on the Avenue of the Giants. Great gift shop on site. The giant redwoods edge one side of the park and you can walk out and wonder around the trees right from the park. The park itself has lots of grass, but no bushes or trees to screen sites - it was not crowded while we were there, but if it had been, there would be no privacy between sites. All utilities work fine. Wi-Fi was a bit weak in our area, but our Wi-Fi booster saved the day. The Avenue of the Giants is a beautiful drive, it’s a bit tight for a big rig, but don’t let that stop you. We would stay here again.
Price is for a “standard” site (July 4th weekend). I think this is the most expensive park we’ve ever stayed in! This place was very popular and full. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The park was in excellent shape; all utilities worked well including Wi-Fi, roads were a bit narrow. The pool was a hit, lots of young kids having a good time. When we were there they had fresh pizza, made on site, and live music. The interior sites, where we stayed, were a “pull through” design, but two rigs were parked in each, so if you’re the second one in, you drive-in and back out. Also, if you’re the second one in, you get to look at the back of another RV out your front window. What I didn’t like was that each row alternated, so your “curb-side” faced the next row’s curb side. This would be great for groups, but otherwise, you’re sharing the grass strip, picnic tables and raised BBQ with three other families!? However, it got very quiet in the evening, and road noise was almost non-existent. We would not stay here again, because of the price and the weird parking arrangement.
Very popular park for families. The weather was hot when we were there and everyone was in the pool or at the on-site water park. Lots for kids to do. Staff was friendly. Park was clean with gravel roads, some dust. We had a water and electric only site. Wi-Fi was weak but OK, our Wi-Fi booster saved the day again. The dump station is right in the driveway, so you block the driveway when using it. We’d stay here again, for a one night stop.
Nice busy campground just above the beach. There are many huge rocks and tide pools to explore. Friendly camp rangers, with camp activities almost every night. The campground is nicely wooded and nearly every site has some privacy. Some sites have full hook-ups, many are water and electric only, with some dry sites (mainly for tents). Sites A18, A20, A21, A22, A23, A24, A 25 and C01 have an ocean view! The sites on the east side have some highway noise. Camp hosts keep the place very clean. No Wi-Fi and Verizon was weak. We would stay here again. Watch out for $8.00 online registration fee, if you need to make a change, it’s another $8.00!
Nice busy campground near the Oregon Dunes. There is a big lake at the end of the camping area with big pines right down to the shore. Saw people fishing and boating. There is not really any dune access from the campground (you can get to the dunes, but it’s a hike!). The campground is nicely wooded and nearly every site has some privacy. No Wi-Fi. Lots of mosquitoes in mid-summer! Several camp hosts are there, and they keep the place under control. We rented RVs and had fun riding around the dunes. We would stay here again. Watch out for $8.00 online registration fee, if you need to make a change, it’s another $8.00!
Typical older KOA. Staff was fine, not a very excitable group. The park was clean and quiet. All utilities worked fine, including the Wi-Fi. We stayed on the east side, next to a large meadow. Ever though we were not far from the highway, road noise was minimal. Long term campers were in a separate area in the back, short stay people in the middle, and tent campers closer to the highway. Campground is about 10 minutes west of Medford. We would stay here again as an overnight stop.
The lower area (near the pool) is dominated by families with kids; lots of kids running around having fun in the pool and on the big bouncy thing, adults drinking lots of beer. The area closer to the water (older section) has nice big trees, shade, and a much quieter vibe. The pull through sites are basic, with minimal landscaping. Wi-Fi was weak where we stayed (in the older section). This place is geared toward the power boating set.
