There have been some recent changes here. Rates have increased to $28/night and a $1/head pet fee is been added but it remains the lowest cost beach camping available in Southern California. As others have reported this is a one-of-a-kind experience. RVs are parallel parked on the shoulder of a highway that was a primary route along the coast until it was replaced by a larger and more modern freeway. The highway is still in use and there is an adjacent rail line that carries heavy freight and passenger trains but much of the noise they create is drowned out by sounds of the waves breaking just steps away. Access to the dog-friendly beach is good at the south half but difficult north because the parking sites are atop a high seawall of boulders. Sites are 45’ long. There are no amenities other than informal fire pits among the rocks at most sites. No fires are permitted on the sand but I confirmed with a Ranger that they are OK in the rocks. We have camped here many times over the past 15 years and have never had a bad experience. We will definitely go there again.
This is a very nice park located about one mile south of Seaside. Most of the sites are in a large grassy area, some with shade. Most are back-ins but there are some pull-throughs that can accommodate long rigs. Our site was level and the others appear to be also. There is a large tent and dry-camp area with no trees. The grounds are well-maintained and clean. It is quiet, especially in the sites on the side farthest from the highway. We will stay there again.
This small rustic campground is a decent spot for an over-night stop or a base for exploring the Redwoods, with long pull-through spaces providing a lot of shade for relief from the sometimes high summer temperatures. It is immediately adjacent to the highway with easy in and out. It gets some road noise but traffic is light during the night. We were not disturbed by it. Trees block satellite TV but we were able to get it from one of the sites closest to the highway using a portable dish and a long cable. Verizon MiFi worked but was slow. We will stay there again.
The Sou’Wester Resort is a historic lodge and vintage RV park on the Long Beach Peninsula about 15 miles North of the Columbia River. The history of the property dates back to 1892 when the first vacation cabins were built. It is now a collection of rustic cabins, vintage travel trailers and RV sites. The location is a block off the highway and quiet. RV sites are on and around a grass area surrounded by mature trees, and have full hookups. Sites vary in size, the larger ones being approximately 50 feet long and 20 feet wide. All are back-ins but some can be configured as pull-throughs when the park is not full. Most sites do not have fire pits or tables but there a large community recreation building and fire ring. There is no cable TV but most sites have satellite TV access. There is free Wi-Fi, but it is slow to the point of being almost unusable at times. Our Verizon MiFi worked but was also slow. The beach is less than a mile down a paved road, and there are two good restaurants within easy walking distance. A small fleet of loaner bicycles is available. We enjoyed our stay and will go back.
This is a very pleasant RV park; clean, well maintained and quiet with friendly managers. Pets are welcome. The WiFi is free and fast. A little bonus is the seasonal Farmer's Market held on a field next door on Sunday, featuring local produce and home made goodies. The park would rate a 10 except for the fact that there are no views. You would not know that you were on the coast other than for the sound of the fog horn, but it is just a short drive or hike to scenic views of the harbor and the Pacific Ocean.
This is a small property with a rental cabins at the front and RV pads at the rear. It is quiet and clean. Some RV pads can accommodate rigs up to 40 feet but all are back-ins and access is difficult because of the narrow driveway and trees. In 2012 the park ownership changed and the name was changed to Safe Haven.
We have stayed at this park several times in past years but it has been through a lot of changes, none for the better. The small lake that used to be at the back is gone, as is the water park. Although clean it looks like nothing has been done to improve it. What is left is a crowded shabby-looking place with a lot of long-term residents. We will not come here again.
A old park with a lot of older trailers and long-term residents, but it was quiet and we felt secure. The sites are along interior roads that runs perpendicular to the shoreline. There are no lake views. Some sites are under large trees that provide welcome shade in the summer but may block satellite TV signals. There is no cable TV. Our Verizon MiFi and cellular phone worked good.
This park is in a beautiful setting on the South bank of the Klamuth River. There are several other parks along the river to choose from. We chose this one for the view, which is unobstructed from the premium sites. As others have pointed out the sites are close together but we were willing to accept that. The staff was polite and helpful. Wi-Fi is available for an extra charge but we used our Verizon Air Card which worked acceptably well. There is a beautiful beach at the mouth of the river just a couple of miles away and a casino up on the highway if that is your preferred form of entertainment. We paid the rack rate including a $5 premium site charge because we are not discount club members. It was a bit spend y but we plan to stay again.
This is a gem of a desert campground. We just spent our first night but it will definitely not be the last. We were greeted by a very pleasant couple that signed us in and then escorted us to the site. The escort service was not a bid for a tip - the man left without even a hint of that. The sites are enormous - the largest I have ever seen anywhere - about 115 feet deep and 40 feet wide. The park was not full so they were leaving a vacant space between rigs, making it seem even more spacious. The sites are smooth and level, and each has a nice table. The ground cover is gravel. There are very few trees but this is the desert. The park has no street lights and that is a plus for us. We can sleep without light coming in and when we go out we can see the stars. It is also quiet. We heard no highway or train noise at night. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.
We liked this park. It is small but nicely laid out with good spacing between sites. The interior road and the sites are paved with asphalt. Each site has a tile-roofed shelter with a concrete pad and table. Everything including the heated restrooms and showers looks modern and clean. The park's attractions consist of a very large warm-spring-fed pool and a reconstructed marsh that attracts a lot of birds. We would stay here again.
This is a nice quiet place in a wooded rural setting a few miles South of Rockport. It is simple and rustic. Access is off of Hwy 35 Bypass just past an abandoned weigh station. The interior roads are gravel / crushed rock. It is thickly wooded with scrub oak but we had no problems with overhanging branches. Sites are well spaced. Most have concrete pads with a table but they are surrounded by bare clay soil that looks as if it might be sticky when wet. Some older sites are on a small rain-fed lake that fills in the winter and dries in the summer. Newer sites are at the back of the property farther from the highway. We had one of those and heard no traffic noise at night. There is no cable TV. Wi-Fi is available and our Verizon wide-band service worked good. The owners are very nice and helpful. We will stay there again.
This is a nice place to stop for a while but you will have a hard time finding it if you are looking for "Nueces County Park", which is the park name this listing was under at the time of writing. The name has been changed to I. B. Magee and all of the directional signs reflect that. It is located on the beach just outside Port Aransas. Drive all the way into town and watch for the sign. Interior roads are rough gravel. The improved sites, separated from the beach by sand dunes, offer water and 30-amp electric hookups. Most are on a mix of gravel and sand. Ours was smooth and level. Sites are large and fairly well spaced but the layout is random so that varies. Beach sites with no hookups are available, and there is a dump station. Payment by cash is preferred. There is a surcharge if you use checks or plastic.
This is an ownership park that caters to Winter Texans. It is eight or ten years old but still under development and expansion. Site owners have the option of renting. Temporary guests are assigned spaces from the rental pool. The grounds are very attractive, especially in the older sections that have mature landscaping. There are several ponds that provide water views to some sites. Sites are generous in size and spacing. It is separated from the beach by sand dunes and has an elevated boardwalk for access. The park deserves a rating of 10 for all features other than cost. I was prepared to pay a charge similar to other recent guests, but we were charged more, for a site that had no view or other special attributes other than being in the older part with better landscaping. I would not have accepted it but for the fact we were tired from driving in a winter storm.
This is a beautiful park in the foothills above Mesa. The sites are spacious and widely separated. The natural vegetation is abundant and provides good privacy. Some sites have views of the city that are exceptional at night. Sites are level, well maintained and clean. Although it looks and feels remote it is only a few miles to urban shopping area. We have absolutely no complaints and are looking forward to camping here again.
We stayed here a few years ago when it was a State Park. Under the current City management we think it is better. It seems better organized and the grounds are very clean. The location is beautiful. The sites are on bare earth, each with a picnic table on a concrete slab. There are a lot of trees. We could hear the trains in the distance but there was no road or aircraft noise. Sites are fairly tightly packed so might not be so nice if full but there were only a few campers on this visit. We thought the site arrangement and layout was confusing, partly because picnic tables and utility hookups are on the same side. We liked it and recommend it.
As has been noted in earlier posts this campground is on a 30,000-acre spread owned and operated by the NRA, but open to the public. Some previous reviews have been critical of the entrance road but we had no issue with it. It is unpaved but well maintained, with no ruts or washboard and minimal dust. Pronghorn antelope grazed on the roadside as we drove in. There are two RV campgrounds, East and West. Both have full hookups. The smaller East campground has a bathhouse and laundry but we liked West better. It has 72 full hookup pull-through sites on a hill with grass and 20-foot trees: rustic and beautiful. Sites are graded and graveled. The first one we tried was not level but the second one was great. It had trees on both sides but plenty of room for slides and awnings. Views of the surrounding countryside were awesome. Water pressure was around 80 psi so bring a regulator. There are several firing ranges on the property, some distance from the campground. There is some noise during the day but it is very quiet and peaceful at night. The public is welcome to observe shooting events but hearing protection may be required. Our Verizon cell phone and Air Card both worked but Internet access was slow. They advertise a free Wi-Fi hotspot but we did not try it. This place was much more enjoyable to us than the standard KOA-style RV park. We enjoyed our stay and will return.
We liked this park but feel that it would be even nicer if it was not so dry and the reservoir not so low. The waterline was a long way from where it normally is and some of the boat ramps were unusable. We stayed in Elks Campground which has about 50 sites. Most are pull-throughs are parallel with the road but there are several back-ins with good water views. All sites have electric hookup. There are water hydrants scattered throughout where you can fill your tanks. There is a dump station but no sewer hookups. There are lots of ants but they did not get in. Our Verizon wireless worked well.
City owned and operated Robidoux RV Park is about as nice as they come - on par with some high end resorts other than for lack of a pool - at a bargain price. Sites are large and spaced widely apart, surrounded by green grass and young trees. It is adjacent to Scotts Bluff National Monument and close to shopping in Gering and Scotts Bluff which has a Walmart, Home Depot, and other good stores. There is a little train noise but it is otherwise quiet. Check the schedule of performances at the adjacent Five Rocks Amphitheater. We liked the park a lot and will be back.
If you are the adventuresome type you will probably love this place. The campground is about 6.3 miles off Highway 92, near Chimney Rock. The last 3 miles are unpaved but the road is good. We found the main house by following the directions on the ranch web site but found nobody there. On a hunch we followed the road another 1/2 mile and found a turnoff signed for the campground. Another mile and we passed through a gate into the campground. It is small but clean, with awesome views all around. We were the only ones there. The night was beautiful - very quiet with a beautiful starry sky. We thought the feeling might be a little like that of the early pioneers that passed this way, but without the hardships. We loved it. We never saw a soul but left money in the mailbox on the way out.
This is by far the nicer of the the two parks in the town. Alliance is a major rail center with constant freight train traffic. The yards are on the East side of town. This park is on the West edge of town. There is still some train noise but not bad. It is a clean and well-maintained place. The pads are side-by-side sharing a common utility pedestal so you might have a close neighbor. You might have to back in if the ground is wet/soft but otherwise you can pull through over the grass. The owners are as nice as can be. Some travelers come through Alliance to see the famous Carhenge site which replicates Stonehenge using buried automobile and truck bodies. The site is just a couple of miles out of town on the East side. There is also a nice park in town with a pretty fountain and a museum.
We had trouble finding this place because of confusing directional signs on the highways. Lake Ogallala is a small lake on the East side of much larger Lake McConaughty, just below the dam. Most of the highway signs pointed to McConaughty and did not mention Ogallala. Once found however it is a gem. It is heavily wooded with lots of lush green grass. The trees provide shade and help buffer the high winds that the area often has. They also block the TV satellites from most of the sites. Some sites are directly on the lake. All are spacious and level. Some have electric hookups; 30 amps at the North end and 15 amps elsewhere. There are no water hookups but water is available from spigots scattered throughout the campground. There is no dump station. It is very quiet except for some train horns. The grass hides some nasty stickers so watch your dog's feet. Our Verizon Air Card worked good with an external antenna. It is a beautiful campground and we will camp here again.
The name of this lovely park is Lafayette Park Campground. It is on the outskirts of the town, adjacent to a large public park with lots of open space and man-made ponds. The RV park is grassy and shaded. Most sites have grass pads but some are gravel. Our site was level and most of the others looked level as well. Each has water and electric hookups. Water spigots may be shared with an adjacent site. Overall we liked it very much and will be back.
We stopped here only because we were tired of fighting high winds on the Interstate and did not want to go any further. The access road is awful. It has a series of very aggressive speed bumps that must be crossed at crawl speed. The office staff was cordial and we had no problem getting into our assigned spot next to a decrepit old travel trailer that looked permanent. The spaces are narrow but adequate. The grounds are well maintained, with green grass and small trees. The park is smack on the Interstate and very noisy, but it did quiet down enough to let us get some sleep. We will not return except in desperation.
As other reviews have noted, this place is a ways of the Interstate but the roads are paved and in good condition. It is a beautiful location and a great place to just enjoy the peace and quiet, or to do some fishing and hiking. All of the sites are back-ins and have covered ramadas with tables. Some are double except as signed you pay only a single fee for them. There are no hookups but water is available and there is a dump station. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. We will camp here again when in the area. The rate reflects our Golden Age discount.
This park is not fancy, probably best suited for those that like a quiet place "away from it all." It is an older, rustic park adjacent to, but separated from a community of park models and manufactured homes. It is reached by a winding paved road through the tress off of Highway 101. There are seven pull-through sites and 26 back-ins. There is a pool but we did check to see if it was open. Because of the remote location there is no cell phone service and no cable TV. Satellite TV reception is spotty because of trees but we got it to work using a portable dish. We enjoyed it and will go back.
I have reviewed this campground in the past but there have been some changes since then. The sites used to be variable in size and some were too short for larger camping rigs. They have now been remarked and are a uniform 45 feet (approximately) long. Our 35 foot MH and toad fit nicely with a foot or two to spare. There are signs saying no fires on the beach but I think that means on the sand. We have always had fires in the rocks that form the sea wall. The rangers seem to have no problem with that. The sand is cleaner than most public beaches we have used even though all of the cleanup is done by the campers, who seem to us to be generally well-mannered and considerate.
This is one of the nicest state parks we have visited. The location on the Colorado River is scenic and provides good recreational opportunities. The sites are large and level. Numerous mature trees provide good shade from the summer sun. The entire park including the showers and restrooms are clean and well maintained. Staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I do not fault them for the reservation system. The rules are made by the park service administration, not the local rangers. Penalties for canceling or changing reservations are usually imposed for good reasons, among them being to discourage reservation hording and opportunism. It is unfortunate when they bite people with good intentions but it sometime happens. Most of the sites in this park are available on a first-come basis so you do not have to use the reservation system.
This campground is on the Colorado River between the bridge and the dam and across the river from the big casinos. It has "beach" sites that are directly on the river bank with great views but no hookups and regular RV sites with hookups. The sites are fairly large and each has a metal shelter alongside. Some are deep enough for 40' and longer RVs. They are subject to noise from power boats on the river and from adjacent party sites. Most of the hookup sites are some distance back from the river and have no river views but are large and level. Many are occupied by long term residents but seemed to be clean and well maintained. We saw a few unleashed dogs in both areas. Our overall impression was that the place is nothing fancy but a good value.
This facility, operated by the National Park Service, is located in northeast Arizona at the end of State Highway 564 off of US Highway 160 at an elevation of 7,200 feet. There is no entry fee or camping fee. There are two campgrounds. Sunset View is the one best suited for RVs and is open year around. The interior road is paved, The pads are paved and reasonable level. Sites are widely spaced and surrounded by trees. There are no hookups but water is available. The web site and a sign on the highway indicate that the maximum RV length is 28 feet but there are a few sites that can accommodate larger units including our 35-foot motorhome. The Visitor Center offers exhibits, Native American art and craft demonstrations, movies and Ranger talks. A short self-guided trail leads to an overlook that provides a good view of the Betataken ruin on the opposite wall of a canyon. A Ranger-guided hike into the canyon and the ruin is available. It is a beautiful place and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only reason I am not giving it a higher rating is that there are no hookups. We will go there again.
This park is the only thing available near the Monument other than extremely primitive camping in the tribal RV park so take it or leave it. It is in a pretty location at the top of a red rock draw with views of the valley. The access road is narrow and steep in places but is in good condition. Interior roads are paved. The sites are terraced into the hillside and some have views. Sites adjacent to the office/store building are subject to equipment noise and bright lights. The sites are large but the one we had was badly bent, requiring a combination of blocks and hydraulics to get level. They are not paved and the red dirt seems to cling to everything so leave your shoes at the door. Wi-Fi is available but was practically useless even though we were parked near one of the antennas. Our Verizon Air Card worked but was very slow. I would have rated this place higher if it was not over priced. As an aside there is a 15 miles public loop road through the Monument. It is drivable in a standard passenger vehicle but is extremely rough. Group and private guided tours that include roads not open to the public are available.
I have reviewed this park before but am doing it again because significant changes have been made. We really like this place. We have always stayed in the A Loop at the top of the hill which has large spaces, some with water and electric and some with electric only. The placement of the utilities at some sites is some distance from where they should be so you might need extra hose or electric cords. The good news is that the COE has added a new RV and tent campground down the hill and closer to the lake. I do not know the number of sites but there are a lot of them and they look very nice. The RV sites have large concrete pads, tables with copper-colored metal shelters, water and electric. The bad news is that the new sites are not open yet. The park attendant did not have a date, but it should be soon.
The RV parking area has 21 spaces along the back edge of a large parking lot used by long-haul truckers. The spaces offer back-in parking with water and 30/50 amp electric hookups. They are close but large enough for big rigs and slideouts. It is clean but subject to noise from the trucks and is brightly lighted all night. We were not bothered enough by either to spoil our sleep. To stay you must get a Player's Card and an RV Pass from the casino. There have been some changes in the pricing policy because the spaces are not unconditionally free as reported by others. It is a "play or pay" deal that is a bit confusing to us. We were told that the parking was free if we played at least $25; otherwise we would have to pay $25 for the space. The first $10 of play was to be out of pocket but that was to be credited back to us after we played that much. I started with $20 in credits, played the slots for a short time until I hit a minor jackpot, then quit with over $25 in credit on my card. When I checked out the next morning I paid nothing. It was an OK stop and the price was right. We will do it again if the opportunity arises.
I don't understand why anyone would pay double the price to stay in town instead of this park. The sites are spacious and beautiful, and many have lake views. It farther from the strip but well worth the 15 minute drive. The nicest RV sites are electric only (30 amps) but water is available to fill your tank at spigots throughout the campground and at the dump station. The restrooms and showers are nice and there is even a laundry. The park has a mix of reservation and first come sites.
We liked this park. It is next to the highway but our site in the back was very quiet. We had a lot of grassy space between us and our neighbors and even a little bit of shade. The site had a paved patio with a concrete table and benches, but no fire ring. There is a good supermarket and a Flying J with a restaurant nearby, and a more shopping including a Super Walmart in Harrisonville, about 9 miles. The owners were very nice.
As others have noted this is an older park in a semi-rural setting on the edge of town. The location is away from the Interstate and quiet. Interior roads and driveways are covered with crushed rock. Sites are separated by struggling grass. After staying there I understand the uneven reviews. There are some very spacious sites in what appears to be the older section, but also some that are way too narrow. The newer section at the rear has a large group of more conventionally arranged sites that have adequate space between them for awning and tables. The impression one gets therefore varies with the site you get. If you want space try to get a site in the "G" row. One reviewer alluded to some electrical problems but I saw none. The pedestals looked fairly new and in good condition and the 50 amp service at our site worked perfectly. There is a BBQ cookery on the property that offers a standard selection of meats and fixings in the evening. It looked good but we did not try it. We enjoyed our stay.
Outstanding! If you are looking for a luxury resort this isn't it but it is near perfect otherwise. The grounds are grassy with a lot of trees and the hard-top sites are widely spaced in a random pattern. Some have shade. There is a river running behind the park but the banks are covered by dense vegetation and are not visible from the sites. It is adjacent to Highway 101 but we had no problem with traffic noise at our site at the back. The office staff was courteous and helpful.
This is a pleasant place. It is on the bank of the Rogue River and there is good access, but only a few sites that are truly "waterfront". You can't see the namesake bridge either but that is a minor issue. Our biggest complaint was the noise from Interstate 5 which is very close by. Although we prefer the sister Riverpark location a few miles down-stream (it was full), we would stay at Bridgeview again.
We stayed for only one night while visiting a friend in the area but enjoyed this park because it is attractive and quiet, and we had a nicely shaded pull-through site. It had 50-amp service which we needed for the A/C because it was hot. As the name implies it is in a former rock quarry: relics of which in the form of large blocks of stone are scattered throughout. This is an older park but seems to be well maintained, although we did not examine or use any of the facilities. There is supposed to be Wi-Fi available but it was unusable from our site, as was our Verizon Air Card. Overall it was a pleasant stay. We will go there again.
We love this park, which true to the name is right on the south bank of the Columbia river. We are in the park as I write this review and are watching a large barge passing by just 100 yards outside the windshield of our motorhome. The park is a couple of miles from Interstate 5 and on a lightly used road so is very quiet. The owners have made a lot of improvements since our last visit a few years ago. The sites are gravel with ample grass areas, but no shade. There is a large grass lawn between the sites and the river that includes community fire rings and a play-set. We will definitely be back.
I don't think there is another "RV park" like this on the west coast. It is a Ventura County facility. It is not an RV park in the usual sense of the term. Rigs are parallel parked along a stretch of what was the coast highway many years ago. The Pacific Ocean is on one side with only a boulder seawall between the RVs and the sand. On the other side is the old highway, which is still used by local traffic, and a fairly busy railroad track. As others have posted there is some traffic and train noise, somewhat masked by the sound of the surf. It is pretty awesome. Most of the marked spaces are about 45 feet. Access to the beach from most sites entails climbing down over the boulders, which requires some agility. There are no hookups and there is no water available. If you can deal with those things you will have a beach camping experience that is hard to beat. We camp there often and love it. Stay limits are 7 days in the summer (April through October) and 14 days in the winter.
This is a very basic no-frills campground that is OK for an overnight stop or as a base for visiting the nearby bird sanctuary. The average-size side-by-side sites are on gravel with only a few small trees, no grass and no views. Trains on the adjacent rail line are loud but not too frequent. The owner is friendly and the price seems very reasonable.
This is pleasing campground located on a large COE reservoir between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The RV sites are in "A Loop" on high ground overlooking the lake and the surrounding area but only a few sites have good lake views. Most are back-ins but there are some pull-throughs parallel with the road. Sites on the inside of the loop have water and electric hookups. Sites on the outside have electric only. There is a central dump station and a cinder block restroom/shower building. The restrooms and showers looked clean but were marred by peeling paint. Some of the sites are on a reservation system and others are first come, first served. Nearby recreation includes two pueblos and the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. We enjoyed our stay and will go there again.
To call this place rustic is probably being too kind but it does have its charms. It is located on a pretty treed hill a little south of the Air Force Academy near Colorado Springs. It is well off any major roads so is very quiet. That is the good part. The interior roads are dirt - uneven and rutted - as are the sites themselves. The utility layouts are haphazard. At our site, billed as a full-hookup pull-through, the sewer connection was in the usual place but nothing else was. The electrical box was way up front on the right and the water was way up front on the left. The electric box was shared with the adjacent site and had only one 30-amp and one 50-amp outlet. That was not a problem because the other site was vacant but if both sites needed the same service it couldn't be done.
This park is in a pretty bucolic setting only a few miles from the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. It is well-maintained and the owners are very nice. We liked it and would rate it higher except for a couple of things. Other reviewers have commented positively about their sites being level but ours was not. Our pull-thru site was on a hillside and had quite a lot of side-to-side slope; so much that our hydraulic levelers were not able to get us as level as we would have liked. Our other negative is the noise from the trains. They are not too frequent but do a lot of horn blowing when the pass through.
Sasquatch Provincial Park is located a little NE of Harrison Hot Springs BC. There are three campgrounds - Lakeside, Hicks Lake and Bench. The first two are on small lakes and have a limited number of lakeside sites. All are heavily wooded. with large and well-separated sites. Most of the sites are on a reservation system but there are some first-come sites in each campground. The campgrounds are about seven miles from town, the last three of which are on a fairly good unpaved road. There is a dump station a mile or so before the first campground turnoff but there is no water there. Potable water is available from central spigots in each campground but filling a large tank from them is awkward, so going in with a full tank is recommended. Firewood is available for purchase from the rangers. We enjoyed this park and will go there again.
This park has gotten some bad reviews in the past, but seems to have improved a lot. There are a large number of permanent or seasonal residents, some who own their sites, but everything is neat and tidy. The sites graveled with some mature trees and the entire property is surrounded by trees. There is a miniature golf course and they are adding a hot tub. Free wifi is available but the signal was weak and performance was spotty. The managers were very helpful in solving a couple of small problem.
This campground is in a scenic and quiet location on the Eel River in the heart of the California Redwoods. It is an older facility with limited accommodations for larger RVs but we had no trouble with our 35' motor home. Our site was "on the river" but it was some distance away and not visible, partly at least because this was mid-summer and the water level was very low. Our biggest complaint was that the park's power grid was inadequate to support the load in the summer heat. We had only 105 volts at our site and could not run our A/C on it. We did get permission to run our generator for a few hours until after dark when the outside temperature cooled down.
This park is centrally located in California Redwood country. It is an older facility as other reviewers have noted but has been well-maintained. It has been a favorite of ours for many years. Sadly however rates have been increased aggressively over the past two years to the point that it is way over-priced. We will not be going back.
This used to be a park we liked a lot but it has changed. The riverfront sites we enjoyed in the past are gone. Replaced by boxy little pre-fab "cabins" that block the river views for everyone else. Recently the park became a KOA. The new owners have cleaned the place up a bit but have imposed a big increase in fees. The rate on our pull-through site was $55, by far the highest in the area. We will not be back.
This is a somewhat remote park in a pretty mountain setting. It is about 15 miles south of Colorado Springs and any shopping so pick up your groceries before you go. The remote location make is a very tranquil place. There is no highway, train, or other noise to disturb the peace. There are lots of trees. The sites are spacious and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only thing that some might consider a negative is the distance from attractions and shopping but that is what makes such a pleasant place.
I don't understand complaints about this park being "dated". Other than not having 50-amp hookups it has all of the amenities a good park should have including a WiFi system that actually works. It is pretty with lots of trees, and very clean. It is easily the best between Eureka and Santa Rosa and a good base for visiting the Redwoods. My only (minor) gripe is a new front office system that requires guests to return to the registration desk on the day of departure to settle the bill, rather than doing it at check-in.
This a pleasant, quiet little park located in the town of Chama and on the banks of the Chama River. We had a large site on the river's edge with nice views. Our only complaint is that the rate seemed way too high for off-season. The scenic train ride had shut down for the winter and park was nearly empty.
It is all about location. This park is on some of the most expensive real estate in the country, which must be the reason for the astronomical rates. The Premium Sites that face the bay are very nice if you can stand the price but the rest of park is disappointing. The sites are closely spaced in standard side-by-side configuration with bare earth pads, sparse landscaping and no views. Some are adjacent to or across the road from factory-built housing modules that are used as rental “cottages”. If you simply must have an RV site in Newport Beach this is the only choice and you will probably enjoy it if you can afford a premium site. Otherwise I cannot recommend it.
We have stayed at Rancho Sedona numerous times over the past several years and have always enjoyed it. The park is conveniently located near Sedona's major shops, art gallerys, restaurants and other attractions. It is clean, quiet and well-maintained and the staff has always been polite and helpful. There are a group of sites located along the bank of the creek that are especially nice. Certain ones of those are designated "Executive Sites" that are larger and offer added amenities. The prices at Rancho Sedona are on the high side but are not out of line given the location. I read the cluster of negative reviews of this park including one that accused the park owners of posting reviews of their own site. There is a suspicion that more than one of those may have been by the same person.
Located anyplace else this park would get a poor rating but the location is outstanding. We are there now, parked in a spot just 50 yards from the surf on a beautiful flat sandy beach. It is spectacular. The grounds and facilities are clean. On the down side the park is suffering through a transition that has diminished its appeal to those seeking full services. The owners are trying to sell it but possibly because of cash flow problems have closed attractions like the trout pond and deferred some maintenance. Biggest problem: the sewer system is temporarily (?) unusable because it does not meet state environmental requirements. I fear the property is ripe for redevelopment and may not exist as an RV park much longer. Enjoy it while you can but come with empty holding tanks.
