Finally! Really nice sites. Well laid out. Beautiful view of mountains. Walk to West Yellowstone: the best entrance to Yellowstone Park. Great staff. Very busy, and it should be! Grizzly is not an RV Resort; which we are searching for and filming, but it is a wonderful camp for those looking for campgrounds. We were here for six days.
There are a number of permanent residents here. While one can walk to the lake - and pay the park entrance fee - Lakeside is not BESIDE a lake. The "river walk" is on top of a berm built by the Corps of Engineers to hold back the lake during a past flood. The river is dirty and slow moving. I would think mosquitoes reign in the summer. For walkers and joggers, there is a nice walk along side to the left just before you enter the park. The best thing about Provo is Kneaders and The Chocolate. I'd keep on going to Salt Lake City otherwise.
This is a ranch, not a resort - especially an RV resort. I didn't even take the trouble to film the activities that would make this desirable for those families who rent houses or cabins. I did take photos of the unlevel dirt they call sites. Beautiful mountains in the distance but trash all around and mud on the picnic table. Offering massages doesn't make you a resort - at least not the quality of RV Resort we are searching for across the country. On the up side, Zion is amazing. You can stay there for weeks. Should we return next year on our way across the U.S., we plan on staying elsewhere. Also, eat at Oscar's. Amazing!
Because we are searching for true RV Resorts, my views and reviews are different from those looking for clean bathrooms. Speaking of...the bathrooms at Oasis are utilized by both men and women. Toilet seats are often up and muddy footprints march from shower to front door. Grass areas are scraggly. She must have been very nice when the Rat Pack was alive, but Oasis needs some heavy Botox and a face lift. I didn't film this "resort" for my blog but did take a photo of old, greasy chairs chained to the wall and floor in the laundry rooms. Would love to know the story behind that! The Oasis is close to a Whole Foods Market and a really cool Disneyland-like shopping "town". Go see Beatles Love at the Mirage.
Why do so many camp grounds call themselves a resort? Distant Drums is clean. It has private, clean, contained bathrooms. It's on the freeway. It's near Sedona. Distant Drums is not a resort. I didn't film it.
Oh man! So close and yet so far. Beautifully landscaped around the club house and pool area. A real library. Amazing activities "in season". But when we first drove in and saw these little, white "park homes" that look like prisoner of war camp housing surrounding the golf course, my heart sank. Then, when we drove out to the fields of gravel, I became depressed. I now understand that Arizona and Nevada can't do grass, but. If you're going to have park homes, why can't you create aesthetically pleasing plastic ones? Why can't you do something with the acres of gravel for those of us visiting? Sorry. We can't call you an RV Resort.
We are searching for true RV Resorts. This is not one. Pechanga is clean, has wide, paved sites. Clean restrooms. Key coded bathrooms. Need to push a button every few seconds for water in the shower. How tacky! We wonder if the hotel is the same. Couldn't experience any dining in casino because of all the smoke. If you stay here, be sure to visit downtown Temecula.
This comes close to our expectation of a true RV Resort and we're looking forward to returning. It's beautifully landscaped. Has tennis courts, golf, swimming pools, a restaurant. We had a huge paved site with tables, chairs plus a large grass lawn with lemon and orange trees. Perfectly located between Palm Springs and Palm Desert. Wish it had a better exchange library. Needs more laundry facilities for its size.
A well designed, new park with an area for groups and an area for individuals. Has nice sized level sites. Some back into view of next door vineyard. While this is not a true Resort by our classification, the upper level adult spa is the best I've seen yet. We are on a quest to discover the best RV Resorts, best restaurants/coffee roasters/cafes, best artisans, best theatre, best of nature in the U.S. Our rate reflects monthly plus electricity. We stayed two months and will be going back for a month in November as the Central Coast is our "home".
