In my opinion this is a great "little" park. Only 15 sites here and I imagine it may be a little cozy during their peak season, but right now it's Great! The sites are right on the Little Salmon River and our door is only twenty feet from it! Can't wait to go to sleep tonight while we listen to the music of the river. We were greeted warmly and was helped with parking the rig. Only 25 bucks for a full hook up site and great customer service makes this place a great value. Driveway entrance is somewhat steep and narrow, but we easily managed it. We'll be back!
Nothing fancy about this place, but it's about your only choice for the area. It has full hook ups that are located behind the casino in the parking lot which means it's pretty noisy all night, but the price is fair for what you get. Nice lady at the registration desk.
This place gets a 10 not only for what it is now, but for what it will become. This is a former membership only park that is now under new ownership. This was a great place before, but they are now renovating everything. All sites have been upgraded to 50 amp service, each is level and has a cement patio. They are building a new pool (in addition to the existing one) and adding a fitness center along with a brand new bathroom and laundry facility. Now for the best part, the staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming, it is extremely quiet here because it is just far enough away from the center of town to be away from the city noise, incredible views of Charleston Peak and the Spring Mountains from every site, an on-site RV wash, and unbelievably low prices! There is also a winery and an incredible tasting room along with a first class restaurant here too. In my opinion, this is the best RV Park in Pahrump offering the best value I seen in a long time
This is a nice BLM park. Very scenic and it is very quiet at night. Dry camping only but potable water is available and there is a dump station, too. The campground is down in a canyon along Burro Creek with lots of hiking and exploring opportunities in the area. The roads are a little tight for big rigs, but doable, and some sites may be a little too narrow for slides. We parked and walked the campground first and found a great site for a 36' RV. No cell service at the campground!
This place is nice, and it does have level cement pads, a nice clubhouse, and a pool, but to me, it sure isn’t worth $48. After checking in I didn’t even get out the front door before I was solicited by a man wanting to offer me a ‘great’ deal on show tickets. The 18 hole putting green course is mostly dead grass and weeds and it was quite evident that there was a sewage spill at my site that had not been cleaned up properly. This is a huge park and it appears that long term renters and workers are a big part of their business. I walked the park and was surprised at the total lack of rules enforcement. The staff is very friendly here but with the constant highway noise and continual air traffic overhead providing a restless night’s sleep, I won’t be back. I’m sure there are other places just as nice in this town that are more reasonably priced
This park is getting better every time we stay here. We use this park as a base camp every year, and we have watched it improve with every visit. The county has now placed an on-site caretaker here, and they continue to make improvements. It is very quiet here during January and we noticed that the locals are not abusing the facilities any more. If you are in a big rig, be aware of overhanging tree limbs and a few tight turns though. We navigated it with a 36' fifth wheel with some minor difficulty. Slim to none opportunity to find a satellite with a roof mounted unit, portable units will work better at finding a hole through the many Sycamore trees. Bathrooms have been upgraded with tile and new fixtures, but they still are not kept very clean.
Nice enough park for only $20. Easy check in and friendly staff at the store. Only the upper park is open during the winter and the lower park appears to be a tad bit nicer. Very little maintenance being done in the park. Lots of dog waste and cigarette butts everywhere. This is a casino operated RV Park so don't expect a "resort" even though the word is used in it's name. Great view of the lake though.
This is probably one of the nicer parks in the area but it is nowhere near as nice as it used to be. I'm not sure if I was bothering the lady when I checked in and handed her my cash but a smile and a 'welcome' would have been nice, also, a 'thank you', would have been nicer. It looks like about 50% permanent residents now which seems to be a trend in most western parks now. It's January so the golf course is very soggy right now but it is the nicest feature of this park. I would not recommend paying extra for a "premium" site. They are nothing more than a site on the end of a row with cheap, dirty, plastic yard furniture as the added amenity.
We really enjoy staying at this park. The staff is friendly and it is very quiet here. I'm not sure what the Oct. 2011 reviewer was complaining about. Our Verizon cell phone and air card work flawlessly here. (perhaps they should pay for a better service provider) We fished the Chetco River right here in the park and the owners offer a private boat launch and fishing beach to all guests. Just because you can't catch fish doesn't mean you should give the park a bad rating, sheesh!. The driveway into the park is steep, but it is easily navigable if you are a competent driver. There is ample room, although snug, for two rigs to pass if necessary. There is also a pullout area for any outgoing RV to give way to the incoming RV. All it takes is common sense and courtesy. Perhaps the October reviewer should buy a park model in Arizona. Brookings is a great town to visit during the winter months and we have looked at all the parks in the area. We like this one the best because it is out of town a ways and it's quiet here.
We love this place and always make it a point to stay here. Right now they offer a 'buy two nights, stay for three' promotion. Restrooms and laundry facilities are first class and always clean. This place would be perfect for clubs to meet because they now have a fantastic clubhouse that is available to all guests. This park was designed with big rigs in mind and it is easy to navigate offering spacious waterfront sites. Highly recommend this park.
This is a great Oregon State Park that is located right next to the beach. The volunteers do a great job in keeping the facilities spotless clean. I did not see one bit of litter anywhere. The bathrooms are older, but as I stated, spotless clean. BEWARE!!! This campground is extremely overgrown with trees and if you have a larger rig, you "WILL" come into contact with overhanging branches. I suggest walking the loops first to asses your access if you are fussy about your rig.
We like this park and stay here when passing through. Great place if you have dogs or just like to take walks or ride bikes. There are plenty of paved trails along the river accessed right from the park. It's an older park, so the roads are narrow and some sites may be difficult for bigger rigs. Trains pass through often, but there are no crossings in the area so there are no train horns blowing. I drove up to the other park in town and it looks nice too. It's farther out of town so it must be quieter due to no trains.
Great park. Don't miss the great short hikes available in the park. Very quiet here, and the sites are very clean. Big rigs: Watch the tree branches going in and out. I had to stop and get on the roof of my fifth wheel with my loppers to get clearance as I left. Eastern Nevada State Parks are sure nice though!
Great place to park for a night, only 15 bucks. 50 amp service at all sites. Water is shut off at this time. They also say that cable is not available, but we tuned in many digital stations on our antenna. The "RV Park" is just a gravel parking lot right next to the highway; it's pretty noisy, and the whole place has a run down appearance. No attention is given to upkeep in the RV parking area including picking up litter and dog waste left by inconsiderate RV'ers. For a memorable dining experience don't miss the Jail House Steak House and casino in town. Awesome!
This is a fantastic Nevada State Park! Eastern Nevada is unique and full of surprises, this park is one of them. This is probably the nicest and most meticulously maintained State Park we have ever found. The facilities are incredible and the campground is kept absolutely spotless clean by one of the most dedicated and friendly hosts we have ever met. The bathrooms and sites are probably the best you will ever find. The host shared his local knowledge with us and guided us to the Delamar ghost town, without a doubt, one of the high points of our trip. (you do need four wheel drive for that trip though) The town of Caliente is also a neat and clean little mining town with lots of history. Don't miss the incredible hiking trails and the really neat park just a short distance above the campground. Incredible scenery and magnificent high desert ambiance. We can't wait to return to this area next winter. There are three other really nice State Parks in this area too. Kershaw-Ryan and Cathedral Gorge can easily handle big rigs. Spring Valley and Echo Canyon Parks are a little more snug and may present a challenge for a rig more than 32 feet in length, but well worth a day trip to see them.
Probably the best place in town to park a rig. Typical casino type RV park, nothing fancy, but very reasonably priced. Pull through sites are a little cozy but several sites on the outer ends of the park are huge. Check in and register at the hotel reservations desk with the friendly staff first. As the previous reviewer mentioned, sites 42, 43, 44 are huge back-in sites.
This place is great! We found it on this web-site and decided to give it a try. Came in for one night and stayed a week. We were sorry to leave. It's close enough to Joshua Tree National Park to make it a great base camp for day trips out into the desert to explore. The second we pulled up to the office we were greeted warmly by the managers and escorted to our site quickly. This is a small snowbird community that happily welcomes all of their guests and makes them feel at home right away. Spotless clean facilities and a very nice pool and spa. Also, a fun and challenging golf course that is also very reasonably priced. Highly recommend this place, we'll be coming back for a longer visit next winter!
I don't normally like to say bad things about a park, but, THIS PLACE IS A DUMP! The park "manager" could barely stick her head out the door to tell me to "park it wherever". We could not locate a sewer hook-up site (which we paid for) so, without the assistance of any staff, we found an electric/water site. The place is over-run with long term, run down trailers. This is not an RV Park as advertised on their website. Walking the fairgrounds this morning and looking at the "trailer park" again, trying to form a better opinion of this place only confirmed that this is the most poorly run and managed public facility I have ever seen. There is not much to choose from in this area as far as RV Parks go so be careful if you choose to stay in Ridgecrest!
This park was a pleasant discovery for us. There is not much to choose from in Bishop during the winter but we found 42 brand new full hook-up sites, all with 50 amp service and very reasonably priced at the Tri-County Fairgrounds. There is no current advertising for this park but I recommend it highly over the other parks in this town. Best of all it's quiet here, far different from the other places that are all located right on busy Highway 395. Soon to be opening will be some incredibly nice, brand new restroom and shower facilities along with a 2700 sq ft meeting room and kitchen facility that will be perfect for groups, RV clubs or family reunions. The fair manager and his staff are very accommodating and working very hard to establish this facility as a 'first choice' for RV'ers. If you don't require a swimming pool or other fancy amenities, this place offers great value.
Probably the nicest RV park in Bishop but way overpriced in my opinion. No discounts of any kind are offered by the staff that seems to have a "take it or leave it" attitude. Lots of long term folks but the park seems to accommodate overnighters, too. Very noisy from the constant traffic on Hwy 395 which runs right next to this park. We were happy to leave after one night and relocate to the to another place.
This park is now owned and operated by Yuba County. They have cleaned the place up, paved the roads and sites and removed all permanent residents which has greatly improved the appearance of this park. It is now a decent over-nite or short stay park. No on-site host and there appears to be little to no security here. Bathrooms are still dirty and many non guests from the area use them extensively. It is still very tight navigating the roads with a big rig due to the overhanging tree branches.
Nothing fancy here but a good place for an over night stay. Friendly and efficient staff, quick check in. No railroads in the area so I expect a good nights sleep! We are staying here during the winter so it's hard to tell how well the park is maintained during the busier months. There are some long term residents here but there is plenty of room for over-nighters, too. Best diesel fuel prices in the area so be sure to conveniently fill up while you are here.
This is a very nice county owned and operated park located right on the Columbia River. The roads are a bit tight but I had no problem navigating my 36' fifth wheel in and around the park. There is a great paved walking path along the river and the park has exceptionally clean but slightly dated restrooms and showers. Lots of room between rigs. A GREAT value for only 20 bucks.
If you like 'remote', this is the place. We love it here! 20 miles north of Hawthorne, NV., just off Hwy. 95, about 1/4 mile. The gravel road is a little washboarded, but the reward is a lakeview site with no crowding. We were the only ones here in March. No problem getting any size rig in here with plenty of room to turn around. Naturally for $0 there are no hook-ups but there is a pit toilet and dumpsters are provided. Turn left at the T going in for the best spots. This is a free site!
This is a nice park. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly. It is completely paved and the sites are side by side for hook-ups. With a players club card, it costs only $15 a night. A very good value in my opinion. It is right on the main drag through town so there is a little bit of street noise but not enough to be a problem for us.
After ten days in the desert we came to Pahrump to look for a park with nice amenities to spend Superbowl weekend at. Pahrump is a snowbird refuge so there are all kinds of parks to choose from in this town. We like this one the best because it is out of town a few miles and it is quiet, clean, and very secure. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Nicely maintained park with lots of grass and very clean restroom and laundry facilities spread out around the park. A small casino and well priced restaurant is located right at the front entrance. No cable hook ups here but we had no problem with the TV antenna and satellite reception. Good Verizon reception too. We'll be coming back for more next winter!
Nice dry camping campground above Furnace Creek Resort and Texas Spring. Tables and fire pits at each site. Nice tent camping area too. No generators allowed so it is a nice place to enjoy the quiet and view the stars. Recommend Texas Spring if you need to use the generator. Easy access for big rigs. We would have stayed a few more days there but, there was a group camp at the north end of the park that was being utilized by a busload of kids whose diet probably consisted of Twinkies and Pepsi. They were pretty wound up by the end of the day so we were unable to enjoy a quiet evening, but, the kids had fun and we enjoyed watching them bounce around.
We stayed at Furnace Creek and Panamint Springs but we did drive in to see this campground. It's a great place to dry camp in Death Valley, especially with all the great places to visit in the north end of the park. It is pretty limited for access, but I think with proper precautions, we could squeeze our 36 ft fifth wheel into a nice spot. The entry has overhanging trees that 'could' scratch your rig if you aren't careful. What a great place to enjoy the less crowded (and quiet) end of the park!
This is a nice centrally located campground in Death Valley. It's the best campground in the area for a large RV. It's just a gravel, self service campground but it was a great base camp for our day trips out into the desert. There are no hook ups, this is dry camping only. Generators are allowed between the hours of 7 a.m and 9 p.m. Except for the one knucklehead from Canada, everyone seems to abide by these hours. The volunteer staff in the campground was less than friendly so if you have questions, go across the street to the visitors center where they at least try to tolerate a 'tourist'.
After making the long winding steep decent into the valley from the west side we made our first stop at Panamint Springs. We talked to the owners son who greeted us warmly and gave us more information about the area than we could ever remember. We decided to stay one night and check the area out and we are still here three days later and we are considering staying for at least another week. There is simply too much to see and do. This park is very quiet and comfortable for us. People need to remember that this is the desert and the desert has a different culture and lifestyle. If you want paved sites and all of the amenities of a 'resort', you need to stay in Pahrump or Las Vegas. The park now has Wi-Fi and its free, but somewhat slow. Good power that is supplied by a diesel generator. That's right, no power company, no cell phone reception and no local TV or cable. That's life in the desert! Enjoy it. We looked at all of the other campgrounds in the area and we are most comfortable here. Furnace Creek does have good Verizon reception. Come stocked up. Food an fuel is very expensive in Death Valley due to the remote location.
Not much to brag about here. This is a run down county operated park that could be much, much nicer. We stopped here hoping to make this a base camp while we explore Death Valley. We'll head out in the morning to look for something nicer. There is no power available to any site and "NOTHING" is level. Most pit toilet bathrooms are locked, but those that are open are pretty nasty. (like most pit toilets) No water available either. I would not recommend this park for big rigs due to the overhanging tree branches.
Wow, considering all of the great reviews for this park, I think the previous reviewer is not giving us the "whole" story. We stay at the Nugget several times a year. We come to fish, relax at the pool, and play golf at Trestle Creek Golf Course which is located right across the road. We have always found the owners and the staff to be extremely friendly and accommodating. They will all bend over backwards to make you feel welcome and at home. The park is clean and meticulously maintained. It is quiet, and the surrounding mountains and trees make this a perfect place for us to come and unwind. They have great hiking trails in the park and a wonderful dog park where the dogs can run and play off leash. All sites have full hook ups and are easy pull throughs. No problem for big rigs. Excellent Wi-Fi too, and, it's free. Bathrooms and showers are spotless as well as the nice pool area. We wouldn't stay anywhere else and recommend the Nugget to all of our friends. Our club will be meeting there for four days in June. Sounds to me like the previous reviewer got his panties twisted up over something.
A very nice park that is a nice stop off point on the way to the coast. New owners are doing a great job improving an already great park. Great hiking trails and a Frisbee golf course at the back of the property. Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. It was a little tight parking our 36' fifth wheel in our site but we did not have a reservation and did not expect a VIP site to be waiting for us. Will stay here again.
A great overnight stop for us as we head south. Great hiking trails down to the river. The water is turned off to the sites in October but the restrooms are open. Easy access from the highway and quiet at night. Plenty of room for big rigs.
This is the nicest state park on the north coast for RV's. It's a little tight for the mega monster RV's but some sites will accommodate any sized rig. (Just watch the tree branches in some sites.) Great hiking and biking trails everywhere with incredible coastal access. Nice hosts and (most) of the rangers are friendly and helpful. Budget cuts are affecting all state parks with some areas of MacKerricher being closed to the public. Hopefully things will improve. $35 a night is a little steep for a site with no hook ups but it's sure nice to be so close to the ocean. Will stay here again!
Nicest park in town. Not too crowded and nice clubhouse. Nice staff and quiet atmosphere. Easy access in and out of park. We really enjoyed the town of Westport while we were there. Will stay here again.
We have stayed at both campgrounds at Rye Patch. We favor the lower campground that is down on the river. There are more trees and it is a little more private there although there was nobody else there when we were. I imagine the place fills up during the peak season. It's just a few miles off I-80 on a good paved road. Easy access for a big rig.
