Positives: Uncrowded, low cost, clean bathroom, friendly staff. Negatives: No grass, many sheepshead stickers, scrubby trees. Too far off the freeway which I didn't realize until after driving several miles to get there. Didn't see a TV connection at my spot. Would be a good park as a home base if visiting the area.

Mix of good and bad here. Liked the spacious sites, clean bathroom, nearby market where you can do after-hours check-in, dog parks with pea gravel. Didn't like lack of grass, unattractive trees, sticker plants sticking the dog paws, few good TV channels. Good place to do an overnight stay, but I feel the park is overpriced.

This is an older park but in a nice setting with trees, adjacent to a small stream, and next to a big playing field. After-hours check-in went smoothly. Bathroom was old with plywood walls but was clean and roomy. A few TV channels available by antenna. Several free Wi-Fi connections available but it was somewhat difficult to connect to. Park was too small for good dog walk so we used the adjacent playing field. Swimming pool was being worked on. All in all, a pleasant little oasis in an urban mess so I would stay again if in the area.

Ditto what the previous review said except there are more bathrooms than had been stated, maybe 8 or 10, because half are on one side and the other half are back-to-back behind the first half. The trees are now big enough to provide a fair amount of shade. Although there is no dog park, there is ample room to walk your dogs since the property is large and well landscaped. Staff were friendly. At a price of $34 (Good Sam rate) it is well worth it. This is a very comfortable place to stay.

Lands End RV Park, though uninspiring (like all the other parks we saw in Long Beach), offers a lot for the price and has all the basic amenities. We were given a site for $20 because of several vacancies in the short RV section. The roads and sites are unpaved so be prepared to deal with sand and some dust. The bathrooms are small and older but clean. There is a small laundry room. There is also a portable toilet near site 30 at the far end of the park. The clubhouse was locked for some reason. It was a somewhat uninviting metal building with concrete floor. Sites 42 through 52 look to be tent sites. The Wi-Fi worked for me the second day but not the first day. The cable TV is fine with 70 channels. One of the features that led me to this park is its path to the beach. The path through soft sand was too far for my wife but my dog had a good time. So you might say there is a huge pet area here! The manager was friendly and helpful.

This park could easily rate a 10 for me if they would only do two things: 1. create one large pet area from all the land they have at the rear of the property, and 2. expand wireless internet service to be available not just at the clubhouse but also at the RV sites. This park is indeed a "resort". The clubhouse and detached bathhouse are stylish, the landscaping is upscale, and there are many recreational features such as enclosed pool, picnic area with gazebo, volleyball, horseshoes, tennis court, and playground. All this for only $37 a night in lovely Coeur d'Alene. For shoppers, there is a Walmart only a couple of blocks away that includes a Mirastar gas station.

This RV Park has the looks and feel of a campground with its simple RV sites laid out to conform to the hillside it is on. The sites themselves are not deluxe, but the park's location is captivating, with its views of the Yellowstone River and snow-touched alpine peak. This park is well-managed, with an golf-cart escort to your site, clean albeit older bathroom, and amenities such as wireless internet and cable TV. My biggest criticism is the steep price of $42 plus 7% lodging tax, only offset by Good Sam discount. The pet walk is also nothing to write home about, but par for the course for a park of this size.

My first impression was the friendliness and cleanliness of the office. My next impression was the boring straight-line layout and minimal landscaping. The trees are too small to provide any shade. The pet area was nothing special, just a grassy area near the freeway, but worked fine as it was much larger than most pet areas. The bathroom was a little old but clean and functional. The wireless internet was of medium strength and worked okay. Yes, there is some freeway noise but it did not keep me awake. In conclusion, this is a boring place to stay but offers all the facilities needed for a good night's stay.

This park was almost full because a group had arrived. I do not understand why this park attracts so many people. It is likely because of the cheap price, proximity to freeway, and ample shade from the July heat. The bathrooms are quite old and there are only 2 toilets, one of which was clogged. The electricity went out in our row but fortunately the maintenance man came right out and restored the power. I was able to watch TV using my rooftop antenna. The wireless internet was not strong but did work. The pet area is a joke but the adjacent shopping mall has a large grassy area that can be used. The people staying here were friendly and that made my stay seem much more comfortable than it otherwise would have been. The office staff was also friendly and you are made to feel welcome there. Would I stay here again? I would probably look for a newer park with cleaner bathrooms.

This campground caught my heart. The person in the office was very friendly and offered me my choice of any of the 3 available sites. I really enjoyed walking my little dog with the barnyard rabbits and chickens scurrying around. He had never seen so much game all at one time. The bigger birds (turkeys?) put out there calls even until 9 pm at night. I am writing this review using the free wireless connection. The signal is weak so try to get a space near the office. Don't miss the picnic area below the office. The shade trees and green lawn were most welcome on this hot July day. Biggest disappointment was not having cable TV. My roof-top antenna can pick up the sound track from 3 stations but the picture is snowy and not in color. This campground is old but it has character. Well worth the $20.67 price.

Cost was actually $28 after Good Sam discount. I reserved by e-mail and found the reservations person to be very helpful. She realized I would be coming in after-hours (the office closes at 7 p.m.) so had my welcome packet on the office door waiting for me when I arrived. I was given an excellent drive-through space right across the street from the office and other facilities. This park looks new and is very clean. Swimming pool is not very large and geared more to use by kids. The wireless internet is strong but free for only one hour. The charge for one day of internet connection is $3. Biggest disappointment is that the recreation room, swim pool, and exercise room officially close at 9 p.m. so with my late arrival didn't have much of a chance to use them. All considered, I feel like I got my money's worth staying here. My inability to fully use all the facilities was not overly important to me because I was just passing through and not staying for an extended period.

This is a nice place for a short outing. Stayed here one night in a waterfront space. The office was friendly and helpful. WiFi Internet signal was very strong. There were many TV channels on the cable connection. Most of the facilities such as the office, clubhouses, laundry, and rest rooms are on the other side of the highway from the waterfront. The waterfront spaces get the best view but one needs to take a short walk across the highway to get to the main facilities. For meals you can go to the Tides Restaurant next door or try the nearby Lucky Dog Casino, which looks like an inviting space.

Can't believe this park has no previous reviews. I heard about it at the Lodi Elks lodge where a woman told me I had to stay there and see the hot springs pools and waterfall. While I did not fall in love with the park, I did leave knowing I had been someplace different and special. See their website for details. It is unusual that they don't take reservations. I arrived and stayed in dry storage for $15. The dry storage area has its own bathroom, shower, and dump facility. It also comes with a view of the distant Salton Sea if you are on the downhill side of dry storage. The office and pools are only 2 blocks from dry storage which is a plus. The little dog park is also nearby as is the back gate where you can walk along the dirt frontage road. The park has 1000 sites but most of them are permanent sites. I did not see any children but can't find any age restrictions in their literature so am calling this resort kid friendly. Everyone I talked to was friendly and talked as if they were in someplace special. The hot springs spas are nice as they vary in temperature with the hottest spa called the "crab pot". This park is remote so don't expect to find any shopping nearby. At the price of $15.30 I paid this place is a deal. Full hookups are $35 at the winter rate, which is also an okay price.

This is a great park for golfers. Unfortunately, I am not a golfer and was irked that I was not able to access the beautiful river front areas. My stay was helped by the fact that I was assigned drive-through space 11, located next to the lake and close to the central facilities. The fitness center was not close, however, as it was on the opposite side of the park. We didn't use the hot tub because it was too small and crowded. One of the showers I had to avoid because it had been urinated in. The motorhome next to us was noisy, be it their dogs, their kids, or the women. In the future I will favor senior citizen parks. The wireless internet I paid $4 for did not have a strong enough signal to allow me to connect. The office is very friendly to deal with.

I found this park to be comfortable because of its nicely landscaped areas, compact layout, and good facilities. Reservations person was snotty, but clerk at the desk was nice. Unlike the huge parks where everything is spread out, here everything is not too far away. Must confess that we stayed at a friend's house instead of at the park so really didn't get a chance to experience the facilities. Did get a chance to walk the dogs at the nearby park. The area is clean and pretty. Biggest complaint is the steep price but that seems to be the price one has to pay for staying in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

Stayed here one night in miserably windy and wet weather so wasn't able to see any of the river front areas. The office was very friendly and helpful. I was assigned a pull-through space which the office had marked with traffic cones for my after-hours check-in. Shower and rest room building was very conveniently located. Yes, not well heated, but no problem once the shower is turned on. The wireless internet was very strong. The cable TV had numerous channels. The space was luxurious, with concrete pad and grass sides. Didn't visit the pool. All in all, a great place for overnight stay at a reasonable price.

Stayed here for 4 days in "pet city" on 11th St in the Northwest corner of the park. This location was convenient for access to the pet area, which was adequate in size to give the dogs a little exercise. The problem with our location in this immense park was the great distance to the central facilities. We did not have a bicycle so were not able to conveniently use the swimming pools, showers, or exercise areas. I've rated the park assuming we did have bicycles. This park's most notable plus are the many facilities and activities offered. It's biggest negative is the distance of the facilities from pet city and the lack of landscaping, which makes it seem like a big parking lot. Also I could not get a wireless signal strong enough to access the internet. Bottom line is that this park offers a lot for what you pay.

We traveled with dogs so were assigned a space along the west edge of the park near the pet gate. The pet area, which was a dirt road alongside the park, was large enough to give the dogs some exercise. What was unusual about this park is that even though we were on the edge of the park we were still only 10 spaces away from the office and swimming pools. The pools and spas were clean, comfortable, and uncrowded. Regarding wireless internet, my recollection is that I could not get a strong enough signal from my space to connect. This park was my favorite of those we stayed in on our recent trip through California and Arizona.

Recommended for an overnight stay. Negatives include no pool, no hot tub, and freeway noise. The positives far exceed the negatives. The park is clean, new, and situated conveniently for easy freeway access and purchasing fast food and gasoline. Office staff was friendly and helpful. I requested over the phone a space near the office and was surprised when I arrived to find space 52, across from the office, reserved for me. Office staff had gone home when I arrived but self check-in procedures are posted on the office door. This site had strong wireless internet access. The cable TV included a wealth of 24 channels. The pet area was outstanding because it led to off-park trails on the adjacent mountainside (publicly owned?). Didn't see any park patrol, which was a relief for me since I had to traverse the whole length of the park to get to the pet area. The mens bathroom and showers (3) were very clean, roomy, and functional (my wife not with me to inspect the women's room).
