First, we’ll start off with the positives of the RV park. The actual park itself is very nice with flat, level pull through sites. All amenities worked well, with the exception of the Wifi, which, while free, was non-existent. Verizon mifi also didn’t get a signal, so note that you will be without connection, depending on where you are located in the park and your carrier. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. I really wanted to like this place, although as far as the “resort” goes, they use that term very generously. It’s located geographically far removed from downtown Laughlin. If you want to get downtown, the 10 mile or so drive can seem very daunting. The casino itself hasn’t been updated since it’s inception, and it shows (and smells). If you’re a smoker, this won’t bother you, although if you’re a fan of clean air, stay outside. Only ate once at the casino (Italian restaurant) and it was awful. We spent two days at Avi, then decided the drive wasn’t worth the hook-ups and opted to dry camp right in town behind one of the hotels along Casino Drive. I’m not a lover of dry camping, but convenience trumped my need for hook-ups. While the Avi KOA provided the basic needs, we won’t return, as it is too remote. Better options abound. Side note - if you are looking for something to do other than gambling and gaining weight at the buffets, take a trip out to Oatman, AZ - old mining town turned touristy ghost town, but well worth the drive.
We pulled in late when the office was closed and had a bit of an issue finding the correct pull-through spots that offered all hook-ups, but we made it after reviewing their map outside. The site was rather level and spacious. Not too many people on that side of the RV park in November, so it was just us and a few other campers. Staff was friendly. Quiet for the most part, which we like. If you have dogs, beware of the leaves on the ground from the trees, as something in the leaves appear to have an adverse effect on their stomachs (our dog is a ball fetcher and whatever it was got on his ball and into his stomach, causing issues). Permanent residents do abound but they are friendly. There is an indoor pool and spa that we did not use but it looked well maintained. Close proximity to Upper/Lower Antelope Canyons and downtown. If you stop here take the drive up 89 to Horseshoe Bend. We'd stay here again.
This is a park in transition, having recently been taken over by the KOA system. Sites were level and gravel - and as some have stated, very close together. We had a pull through which fit our 40' motor home, and it was a bit tight with people next door. Inviting pool area with shuffleboard, mini golf in the front of the park, and extremely friendly staff. Walking distance to Red Rock Recreation area and trails. Little noise from freeway. We only stayed one night due to the fact that they had no working Wi-Fi and no cellular service for our Verizon Mifi. AT&T phone worked well. This has the potential to be a very nice park if they put a little elbow grease into fixing up the RV sites to make them more quality oriented - rather than quantity oriented.
Oh the stories this place could tell. Cactus RV park is situated right on Route 66 in the midst of town. Rate reflects Passport America. We pulled in later in the evening and checking in was simple. We were immediately led to our spot by the very gracious owner/hostess by pulling through the ruins of an old stone motor lodge that was once probably booked to capacity many, many years ago, and now stands in total disrepair. The sites are pull through and level, with full hook ups. Wi-Fi worked great - did not try out the cable. Most of town has gone out of business and buildings stand as a reminder of once was a bustling route, but a few restaurants and touristy type of places remain. This wouldn't be my idea of a 'destination' RV park - but if you're going through the area and like a bit history and/or nostalgia, this is a great place for a couple of nights to check things out. We'd definitely stay here again.
After reading other reviews, I was a bit skeptical about staying here, but our options were limited in this area at this time of the year. After staying here, however, I think this park has gotten a bit of undue bad press. First, I should point out that we stayed here in April and had one side of the park basically to ourselves. The sites are gravel and relatively level - did have to use boards under the stabilizers mostly for the soft ground this time of the year. There is ample space between sites on the north side of the park. The maintenance crews have been working overtime getting ready for the upcoming camping season, and appear to take very good care of the park and facilities. The host was more than gracious, friendly and helpful upon arrival. Laundry clean and reasonable. Fire ring and picnic tables at each site, as well. When the trees bloom, there will also be ample shade. For the kids there's a pool (not open yet but they were getting it prepared), play structures and a catch and release fishing pond. Very pet friendly. No sewer at site, but a mobile unit comes around Mondays and Thursdays to take care of the dirty work. In addition, a dump station is located on site which we used upon arrival without incident. Small store with groceries, supplies and Packers paraphernalia for sale in office area. There is also a golf course within walking distance, so bring your clubs. Only downside - and it was a big one for us - is that it is right off of the freeway and the noise from the traffic is basically non-stop all hours of the day and night. Other than proximity to the busy road, it's a nicely set up and extremely well maintained park. We would stay here again.
We pulled into this RV park late and only stayed one night passing through North Platte. Rate reflects Passport America. Office was closed by the time we got there, but they have an easy after-hour check in system in a booth next to the door. Given the time of the year, there were many open spaces which were long and wide enough to accommodate our 40' MH and tow car. Cable worked well, WiFi did not. This is a nice RV park for an over-niter - but know that it is facing the I-80 and very, very noisy at all times of the day and night.
Price reflects RPI. This could be an excellent RV park if the owners put in a bit of time and capital to upgrade and modernize the park. Very pet friendly. The sites are all back in. We had no issues with backing in or leveling. Trees separate the sites and we never felt on top of our neighbors. Wi-Fi was intermittent. No cable TV. Campers are all very friendly with quite a diverse crowd. The pool area is immaculate, complete with hot tub. Staff is extremely friendly. Restrooms clean. The laundry room, although small, was adequate. Would have rated this park higher, but felt that we were given the 'bait & switch' treatment on our rate. I booked (direct with Cathedral Palms as instructed by RPI) for two weeks using RPI rate. Upon check in, they informed me that they could only honor the RPI rate for one week - with the second week being almost triple the cost. This was not disclosed when I booked the site. Had I known this at the time of making the reservation, I would have looked elsewhere. They should NOT have accepted a reservation for two weeks, and only honored one.
We were originally going to stay at another park off of Main Street, but after pulling in and realizing we could spend $50 a night there and listen to the traffic on 101 - or come here and listen to the sound of crashing waves for the same price - it was a no-brainer. We turned around and came here instead. Had a premium back in site with 50 amp, water, sewer, and cable. Plenty of room for our 40' motorhome with tow car. We had no problems backing in at night. Level sight (cement pad), fire pit was a bonus. There is a great little cafe on site here and the camp host, who also runs of cafe, makes one great cheeseburger. They also serve breakfast with a rather extensive menu, all things considered. Watched dolphins frolic in the ocean and surfers catch waves. The beach is great for dogs, as they can run forever along the beach at low tide. If you're driving through town, I would highly recommend making a stop here if you can. Better than what we saw in town. First come / first served and I can imagine that this gets packed in summer months. There is also dry camping along the PCH for $27 a night with gorgeous views of the Pacific. Two other state parks in the same area as well.
Rate reflects Passport America. Nicest park host ever -- no exaggeration. He went out of his way to direct us in (we arrived late one night) and made sure we were situated before heading on his way. Site was level and all amenities worked as stated. No issues maneuvering in or out in our 40' coach. Laundry clean and well maintained. We were here in off-season so the park was rather vacant and quiet. This location is far enough off of the road that you hear very little traffic noise. We did hear a pack of coyotes one night. And I should mention the STARS - nothing but stars at night, which is great. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here if you get the chance.
Rate reflects RPI. This is a nice campground in Desert Hot Springs. There are a lot of repeat visitors and we didn't meet a single unhappy person in the park. The sites, all back in, are sand. It's the desert, so sand should be expected. We had no issues with leveling, etc. Hot spring "pools" on site, as well as a menagerie of daily events, including water aerobics, water volleyball and pickle ball. Saw a bocce ball court but didn't use it. Small store that has daily breakfast and lunch specials. They have a few volunteers that also serve as security personnel who really like their 'rules' and drive around continuously to enforce said rules (this is a good and bad thing at times, depending on the silliness of the 'rule'). Felt very secure in this park, but just know (if you are considering staying here) that Desert Hot Springs is not Palm Springs. We found the parks on the other side of the 10 in Palm Springs to be a lot nicer (our fault for not checking into things a little more prior to booking) with a much more expensive daily rate. Having said that, Catalina Spa & RV Park did meet our expectations and we would definitely stay here again. I would have rated this park higher, but the Wi-Fi was tragic at best. We work during the week so I called the office prior to booking to ask, specifically, about the quality of the Wi-Fi, which they said was great. It wasn't. And you pay extra for it, adding insult to injury. We bought a MiFi to compensate.
We pulled into Durango in late November and this park was pretty much the only game in town, as the rest of the parks had closed their doors for the season. Weather was gorgeous so they all shut slightly early if you ask me. In any event, this is really a no-frills park. It did have Wi-Fi which worked well. Park, at this time of the year, was filled with mostly longer-term folks with ample spots for people staying short time. Site was level and long enough for our 40' coach and tow car. Mineral spa across the street which you get a 50% coupon for being a guest at Westerly. We did use it, which was nice. Close to road and train so a bit of road noise but not bad at night. Friendly park host. Neighbors were a bit noisy late at night as well. Market and hardware store right across street (within walking distance), and close to golf course. This is okay for an overnight stay, but we felt the price was too steep for what was received, which was basically a parking slab with a Wi-Fi signal. Charged $1 for the dog as well - and I'm sure he didn't use any of their non-existent amenities.
On the recommendation of a fellow RV'er that we met in Rockaway, we decided to come up and check out the Lewis & Clark RV & Golf resort The hosts of this park were extremely accommodating from the minute we arrived: from giving us maps of the area, as well as pointing us in the right direction on local attractions and also furnishing us with local dining recommendations. Our spot was directly in front of the golf course: what a great view. Spaces were large and level: probably the most level of any we have stayed at to date. Very large dog run in the middle of the property. We also liked the tranquility of the park. They offer free club rentals for those RV folks, like myself, who didn't pack theirs. Casual, laid back and relaxing. We'll definitely return.
This place is fabulous! Winding down the small residential roads to the RV park can be quite deceiving, but at the end it's a great surprise. Pulled in to an ocean front spot with nothing between the front of our motorhome but a few rocks, sandy beaches, and crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. The lot was level (gravel) and pull in (as noted for the fantastic view). Everything worked as it should. Wi-fi was fast and reliable. The hosts were extremely gracious. The only "down side" was our neighbors to the left who owned a small cabin here, who complained about just about everything about our coach (diesel fuel smell - which is just silly since there's a constant ocean breeze -- duh). Gets a bit chilly with the wind in the evenings, so pack a jacket and enjoy the brilliant sunsets. As stated, this is a "not to be missed" RV park. I"d stay another week if I didn't have to get back to reality.
Very nice, secure campground close to Mt. Hood and all of its outdoor recreation spots. Gates and check in and also an access code is needed for going in and out of the park. The park itself is very spacious. We had a gravel pull through site which was rather level. Maneuvering in and out of the space was relatively easy. A few low hanging branches here and there were the only real obstacles. Nice store area for anything you might need. Also close to a nearby market and a lot of fun, rustic mountainy type restaurants within a short driving distance. There's a trailhead that starts in the park (we didn't take it, only walked by) and the park is close to a lot of great hikes in the Mt. Hood and Lolo Pass regions. We opted to hike up to Mirror Lake (about a 15 minute drive) and it was spectacular. Staff here was very friendly and helpful: you can tell they love their job. We have no children and they placed us in a part of the park that was just adults, which was really nice of them. Other areas were swarming with kids, which is great if you have them; not so much if you don't, so our spot was extremely quiet and peaceful. Restroom facilities were clean and well stocked. Did not use laundry but peeked in and they were also well maintained. Basic cable worked for those who want it. The only negative thing I can think of, is that they charge $5.95 per day for internet. Our rate reflects our RPI membership (we were quoted $50): and for that much, kick in the Wi-Fi.
What a pleasant surprise. We pulled into Woahink Lake RV Resort a little later in the day and were still greeted by the hosts, who were super nice getting us settled in. Our pull through site was spacious and even had foliage on both sides which gave the space a bit more feeling of seclusion from neighbors. Best part of all, the park is quiet at night. Wi-Fi/ Cable both worked very well. Restrooms and laundry area were extremely clean. Park is very pet friendly, with dunes to the west where dogs can run off leash, as well as a lake to the east which is perfect for dogs who love to swim. Happy to have stumbled upon this park. Would definitely stay here again.
Fabulous little RV Park. The owners were exceptionally kind and helpful from the time we arrived. Had issues with Wi-Fi and they went out of their way to help get us connected. Cute German themed restaurant and the store is filled with all sort of deli goodies. We picked up smoked trout and a bit of black forest ham. Delish. There's a short walk to the beach. You do have to cross 101 to get there, but that was not an issue. Beautiful beach, so it's worth the brief walk. Pack a picnic and enjoy. Restrooms and laundry both spotless. Did not get a chance to eat at the restaurant (they weren't serving dinner the night we were there), but from what I understand, that is definitely our loss. Check out was at noon but they graciously let us stay a little longer. The only reason I gave it a 9 and not a 10 is the fact that the sites only had 30 amp. We will most definitely stay here again, especially to dine at the restaurant. Don't miss this cute RV park.
We loved this park. Although the office was closed, someone greeted us at the entrance and walked us back to our spot. Spacious pull through. Didn't feel like we were on top of our neighbors. Park like setting right across from the unit. This park is very well maintained with an amply stocked store, pool and hot tub (did not use but peeked in and they both looked tidy), and also an outdoor kitchen area for those who needed or wanted it. Within walking distance to Eel River Brewing Company, which was a bonus. Only downside was a little traffic noise from the 101. Would definitely stay here again.
This is one of those RV parks that you can stay at for a night or two if you're driving through town. The name "Wine Country RV Park" is slightly deceiving, as the actual wine country is further north towards Healdsburg (about 30+ minutes). The host was very friendly and helpful. The park is maintained and there are half wine barrels with flowers at each site which is a nice touch. The bathrooms were clean. Laundry looked clean as well, although we did not use it. Note that the park has a section designated for full time residents, mostly in run down motorhomes. As soon as you pull into the park you're greeted by a few of these units, and the rest are sectioned off in the back. They keep the middle section open for short-term stays. Wi-Fi worked well, cable not so well. Sites rather close together. Getting in and out of the park was quite tricky as the corners are tight, as well as maneuvering around low-lying branches and trees. Short walk to a mini-mart/deli type store. Would only stay here again if we had to.
