+ 8 Paved pull through; quiet, which is surprising considering how close the park is to Hwy 101. Toured the mission which was well worth the time. -2 Downside: electricity low; needed leveling blocks in front.
+ 7 asphalt pull through; sites are wide with lots of grass between sites and on play areas, making for a nice walking area. -3 Downside: We stayed here twice on this trip, to and from home. The first pull through was level side-to-side, but front noticeably low, so that leveling blocks were needed. Plus on that weekend, noise from dragsters was loud but fortunately only for about 3 seconds per drag. On the second weekend, a different pull through was so unlevel side-to-side, three layers of leveling blocks were needed.
+7 Gravel pull through on the upper level; electric was good. Usual wind, but no problem. Nice walk on the dunes, which extend to the ocean. -3 Downside: needed levelers in front, the price included a $3 “resort” fee, and the laundry is unacceptable.
+9 Smooth, dirt back-in; tamarisk trees on both sides provide good privacy. The camp hosts are friendly and helpful, and the park is very well kept, especially the restrooms. The current owners have owned the park for 16 years, and their pride of ownership shows. Very pleasant walk “out back” on desert property almost to the dirt airstrip which the owner uses to land his plane! -1 Downside: needed leveling blocks in front, and some may object to having to walk a short distance to the office for cell phone service.
+7 Concrete pull through; level with an orange tree on one side. The manager is the best camp host of all: friendly, helpful, and a great sense of humor, plus she bakes goodies every morning. She introduced us to a park employee who is followed by a roadrunner whenever he runs the tractor. So we got up early enough the following morning to watch it happen. It took a while for the runner to show, but show he did and indeed followed the employee wherever he drove the tractor. There is a social hour and campfire every day at 4 pm. Rangers from Anza Borrego State Park lead 4wd trips in Anza Borrego for those who like that great fun. -3 Downside: the very noticeable noise from Hwy 86
+8 concrete back-in; level [front sloped slightly, but no need for leveling blocks]; quiet; site wide enough to pull the Jeep along side the motorhome; far enough away from I-10 to be rather quiet -2 Downside: no pull throughs, a little pricey.
+ 7 Asphalt pull through; shrubs in between sites, level [front sloped slightly, but no need for leveling blocks]. A small park with very accommodating managers. -3 Downside: sites are narrow, electric outlets are old; shrubs not high enough for good privacy
+8 Concrete pull through, level [front sloped slightly, but no need for leveling blocks], quiet, some trees, electricity good. -2 Downside: far too many crows, there is no pleasant place to walk; a little pricey
+8 San Lorenzo is self-serve, but nice: asphalt pull through, $30 [and Visa is accepted]; level [front sloped slightly, but no need for leveling blocks], well treed; quiet. Walked the park and really enjoyed the antique farm and irrigation equipment displays, including a meal wagon, plus a caboose and an 1880 schoolhouse, with signs explaining it all. -2 The downside: The utilities are at the far back of the site, so the Jeep, in this pull through, extended slightly into the road. The other downside was the unceasing shotgun blasts that could be heard until maybe 7:30 pm and again starting at 7am.
Site A8b, $35 +7 A gravel, level, with grass that is edged, overlooking a well-kept 9-hole golf course ++ -3 No shade, and the signs and directions to Young’s River Road and through to the park are easy to miss. We would stay here again.
Site 38, $35. +6 The park is a narrow, single line of all grass sites perpendicular to the hwy, so it was quiet. -4 It is situated across a gravel road from a narrow strip of mobile homes in various states of disrepair, old cars, and occupancy, except for one nicer home in the middle of the strip -- Plus, sewer connections toward the back of the park are not threaded, and are too narrow for a “donut.” We had to use a cement block to keep the hose-end from jumping out of the sewer. We would try to find a better place.
Site 24 $40 for one night [because we called this am and the site we’d reserved two days ago was not available today], then site 33 for the other three nights, +10 This is the best park so far: on the Icicle River, heavily treed, well-kept, level, quiet: the only sound is the river ++ We would definitely stay here again.
Site 136, $35. +5 The park is big, has concrete pads, wide, with some grass, -5 it is located between Mullan Ave and I-90, both very noisy, and the Wi-Fi is accessible only in the office. We left a day early, forfeiting a days rent. We would not stay here again.
Site D2, c.$33 +7 We like Blue Lake: its small [32 sites]; heavily treed, gravel, with forest floor type terrain in between sites; level [but uphill to get onto the site]; eclectic, so the sites are not all in a row; very near a small, very deep pond [Blue Lake]; far enough away from the highway so that the noise is not a problem; very near a railroad track, but the trains ran infrequently, and not at all at night; -3 most sites do not have a sewer hookup, but a vacant site is used as a dump. The entrance is not clearly marked, so one needs to look closely for the gravel road to the park. We would stay here again.
Site B-6, $35. +7 The park is average: sites are level, well-spaced, with great views and a very friendly staff. Entrance to Glacier is about four miles. -3 grass grows in the gravel, and has no margins. We would stay here again.
Site 25, $40. +6 Lincoln Road RV is very average: gravel, with minimal noise from the highway. -4 Sites are not particularly wide, nor particularly well-maintained -- and the wi-fi is iffy. The park is not worth the price. We would try to find another place to stay.
Site 8; $33; +7 clean, wide concrete pads, manicured grass; -3 little shade, and windy, plus the sprinklers are so close to the pads that they had to be turned off so the inside of the basement storage compartments did not get soaked when opened.
Site 10, $33 +8 Burns RV is good park: level, treed, well-kept, and although on highway 20, the noise is not a problem. -2 no real negatives, it just doesn’t rate a 10. We would definitely stay here again.
Site 317, $44 +7 Scandia is OK: sites are paved, level, some grass, but close to each other; the park is in the middle of town. -3 Traffic is noisy, but not freeway volume, the pedestals, though are at the back of the sites, which can make for long hookups -- We would stay here again.
Another great little campground. The campground itself fronts on the Chetco River, and even has a concrete launch for small boats. A sizable grass area and meandering sidewalk with chairs overlooks the river. The owners are super friendly and accommodating. This was our second visit we and will always stop here on our way down hwy 101.
The sewer pipe is flexible, accordion type pipe; we could not use a screw-in type connector nor a "donut" type; I had to have my wife hold down the sewer end of the hose to keep it from jumping out. In addition, the electricity was not sufficient to run the AC on a hot day and night. Obviously we will not stay there again. This is a Good Sam park, and I have written Trailer Life Directory stating that this park should not be a Good Sam.
This is a great campground. We have stayed here four or five times over the past 10 years and find that it is better each time. Most sites back up to Fort Creek, a small, meandering stream perfect for canoes; you can't go far due to blockage, which is a plus. The couple who own the campground have been there 13 years, are very friendly and very knowledgeable. The town is quite small with few amenities, but that only adds to the joy. We will always make this a stop when we are in central Oregon.
