Found this park via Passport America website and obtained an excellent price by reserving in advance. In retrospect should have taken a look at the park before making a reservation. The RV sites were at least ½ mile from the office, located on a bend in the river. WiFi is available at the office but not at the sites. The “roads” to and through the campground were dirt; actually they were mud as it rained quite frequently. Lots of area to walk dogs, but the amount of mud acquired during the walks was exasperating to deal with. The showers were coin-operated; nothing like inserting another quarter into a slot in the midst of a shower. There were two washers and one clothes dryer. Left the clothes in the dryer for over an hour with no detectable change in the level of wetness; had to haul the wet clothing back to the 5th wheel and drape them around. Needless to say we will not return.
This little, no frills gem is one of our favorite places to spend a few days. The park itself is older, owned by the same couple for many years. Some of the pluses are direct access to national forest land for hiking and dog walking, lots of trees, and very clean restrooms. It is a mostly quiet location, with the exception of some noise from Highway 70. Nearby the small town of Blairsden has delicious breakfasts and lunches available from the café, bakery, or deli; drive a bit more to play golf or hike in the Lakes District hiking area with its numerous trails and lakes. The downsides are 3 channel cable TV, the lack of 50 amp hookups, no WiFi, and no Sprint cell phone reception.
A fellow traveler commented to me during a chat in the laundry room, “This is the nicest PA (Passport America) park I have ever been to.” Why? Silverton has a cute little downtown area to wander around. The Oregon Gardens is behind the RV park although not directly accessible. We were able to watch fireworks from our 5th wheel that were set off in the Oregon Gardens the evening of July 3rd For serious hiking there was a large state park nearby. There is a Frank Lloyd Wright house in the area that can be toured with prior arrangement. On the practical side: there was a Safeway grocery store in walking distance from the park. We used this trek for dog walking; there is also a dog area in the park. Everything was kept up nicely and the staff was friendly. The restrooms and laundry were clean, the laundry was relatively inexpensive at $1.00 per load for the washer and dryer. We will return to this park the next time we are in Oregon.
As previously noted by other reviewers, several spaces are arranged in tandem formation, which works fine when the park isn’t too busy. Recommend backing into one of the tree-lined spaces as they are more private and cooler. While there is no assigned pet area, there is plenty of room to roam just outside the park. The restrooms have nice tile work in them and are kept pretty clean, although the building is quite old. There were an amazing number of cable TV channels available. The location is handy for an overnight stop while traveling Interstate 5 in Northern California, or as a place to stay a few days to explore the Mount Shasta area.
Very nice park; quite an antidote to the all the desert you drive through to get to Lake Havasu City. Every site at this park seems to have a view of the water. There is small dog park area within the RV park and lots of room to walk your dogs just outside the RV park entrance. Another nice touch is the RV park is near the London Bridge. This was our first visit to this park, but it won't be our last.
This is a very new looking RV park located on the east side of the Sierra, relatively close to the backside of Kirkwood; Yosemite is down the road a bit. The restrooms are individual bathrooms that are nice looking and always clean. The restaurant next door serves a good breakfast. There aren't many places to eat nearby, so be sure to bring food with you if you plan to stay a few days. We've stayed at this RV park twice and plan to return. We paid the Passport America rate.
This is mostly a 55+ community that has a few empty spaces. Temporary RVs must park in empty spaces somewhere in the park. The streets are quite narrow so it was difficult to back our 5th wheel into the assigned space. We were quite far from the restrooms that were set up as locker rooms adjacent to the pool, meaning not very private. We were close to the enclosed dog park area, which was thankfully had a few trees. Nice grocery store located not too far away. Another plus was the Flying Dutchman park is not far away; it is a wonderful place to hike.
We stayed here while wandering through the desert of California. We would stay again. The staff was very friendly at this older, mostly permanent resident RV park. There is a separate section for those of us visiting for just one night. Recommend asking for a pull through site if you have a long trailer. The restrooms were as clean as could be achieved in the old, funky smelling building where they are located. The rate is a Passport American rate. Cable TV was an additional $2.
We have stayed at this park several times because of its convenient location, clean restrooms, and a very large dog run area. During our latest visit the dog run area was mostly under water so not quite as terrific as usual.
This is a nice clean park that advertises itself as being dog friendly. We found this to not be completely true. First there is a charge of $3 per night per dog. Second, dogs are not welcomed in at least half the park. The fee seemed high for a location that is right on the highway and very noisy.
