Campground Review: San Francisco RV Resort

“Parking Lot with Awesome Ocean Views!” San Francisco RV Resort This was our first visit to the San Francisco area and the San Francisco RV Resort was appealing because we only had to pay $20 a night with our Thousand Trails (Affiliate Link) membership. While checking in I heard the clerk on the phone quote […]


Campground Review: Elk Country RV Resort

“Open Spacious Sites Close to Redwoods” Elk Country Our desire to stay at Elk Country RV Resort was for the elk. Thought it would be really cool to see them up close and traveling through the campground. Unfortunately, zero elk the four days we stayed here. We stayed middle of August so it may have […]


Campground Review: Bullards Beach State Park

“Just Another Beautiful Oregon State Park.” Bullard’s Beach State Park There is definitely a common theme with Oregon State Parks; friendly helpful staff, clean and very well kept, beautiful settings and ease of access. We’ve been to many private campgrounds that could learn a lot from how Oregon State Parks are managed and maintained. Bullard’s […]


Campground Review: South Jetty Thousand Trails

“Quiet, secluded, easy drive to area shoreline attractions.” Amenities We enjoyed our stay at South Jetty Thousand Trails. We scored a full hookup site near the dog park.

Campground Review: Nehalem Bay State Park, OR

“Beautiful State Park!! AMAZING Staff!” Oregon State Park We stayed at Nehalem Bay State Park the middle of July 2018. First off I want to say the staff at this park is AMAZING.

Campground Review: Newhalem Creek Campground

“Beautiful National Park Campground; Nestled in the Forest!” Newhalem Creek Campground We stayed at Newhalem Creek Campground the end of June 2018 🙂 This National Park campground is nestled in the forest and feels very remote even though it isn’t. Walking distance to the visitors center and a short drive into the small town of Newhalem. North […]


Campground Review: La Conner RV Resort, Thousand Trails

“Rustic and Secluded Campground!” La Conner RV Resort We enjoyed our stay at La Conner RV Resort, Thousand Trails the last week of June 2018.

Campground Review: Vasa Park Resort, Washington

“Camping in the middle of suburbia next to a beautiful lake!” Vasa Park Resort We really enjoyed our stay at Vasa Park Resort and the park managers were super friendly and helpful.

Campground Review: Bend/Sunriver Thousand Trails

Campground Review: Collier Memorial State Park, OR

Campground Review: Park of the Sierras Escapees Members Park

“Beautiful Escapees Park!!” Park of the Sierras Escapees Members Park This is a beautiful park we stayed here as a launching point for Bass Lake and Yosemite National Park; the location is great.

Campground Review: Thousand Trails RV Park, Palm Springs

“Large Thousand Trails RV Park!” Palms Springs Thousand Trails We visited Palm Springs Thousand Trails RV Park the first week of May and it was quite empty.

Boondocking Review: Holloman Lake – New Mexico

“Beautiful camping just outside of White Sands National Monument thanks to the USAF!!” Lake Holloman We loved this spot just down the street from White Sands National Monument.

Boondocking Review: Mile 10 Dispersed Camping, Whites City, NM

“Perfect Boondocking for Carlsbad Caverns. Can be very windy!” Mile 10 Dispersed Camping We stayed only a couple of miles down the road from White’s City and the National Park entrance.

Campground Review: Sea Bee Park, Abilene Texas

“Quiet and peaceful stop near Abilene, TX. ” SeaBee Park This park has a small lake, RC Airplane Airport, fishing, bird watching and more. The park was nice and so quiet you could hear the birds sing. We love to sit and watch birds, it is relaxing after a long day of driving from Oklahoma. […]
