This windy park is a good value if you want to be adjacent to a casino. There is Hwy 101 noise in the spots near the front so go bay side if you can. We found the adjacent Casino restaurants very average. Was told on check in that the park W-IFI is not really useable so we used our 3G cards. Adjacent gravel lots are dusty so middle section is better. Casino is typically smoky so we ran through on our way to dining. Fuel up in nearby Roseburg as fuel here was 15 to 20 cents a gallon higher for diesel (check your GasBuddy app on your smart phone).
Turtle Rock RV has likely seen better days, as has most of Gold Beach. Previous reviewer is correct in that they have stopped maintaining the grass areas including between rigs. Park has dirt and gravel roads and RV pads. The park looks to be replacing RV sites with park models that they are selling and renting. Tent sites adjacent to RV sites don’t work (barking dogs and campfires). Summary: Overpriced and under-maintained. We drove through a nearby place which would be our choice (by a hair) if we returned to Gold Beach. Don’t miss ‘Rolling In Dough’ Café on the other side of town for breakfast, lunch, or baked goods (limited hours).
After looking around the area, and if we had a generator we would likely chose the lakeside state park at Diamond Lake next visit just to be on the lake. The RV Park is across the highway and has no real lake views. The staff was friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers are about one or two decades overdue for a remodel. Our site #1 was inches from the next rig with slides. Sites in the back of the park look better than the pull through sites near the front. No AT&T 3G and very limited Verizon phone service. Better reception at the Diamond Lake Lodge where we took our beach chairs and sat by the water driving to Crater Lake. Yes, bring your mosquito spray!
This was our forth visit of several weeks to Crown Villa over the last three years. The park would rate a 10 in our book but for two issues on both of our visits. 1. Continued Wi-Fi problems. We work via the Web while we travel and the Wi-Fi connection has been from fair to zero. If the park is full it is very slow or worse. When the park Wi-Fi is bad our Verizon 4G card was also very slow as people in the park tended to use their 3G and 4G cards to bypass the slow park Wi-Fi. I'm told management is addressing the situation in the future so time will tell. 2. The park takes four days to cut their grass. They have one guy on a small mower that's doing his best but needs a bigger or second mower. Since it takes four days to mow the park can be noisy Monday to Thursday. Add all the leaf blowers on those days and don't want to wash your rigs except on the weekends. I must add that the staff is very good. They are here their to help you. Crown Villa is still the only place to stay in Bend!
Deerwood is more quite but unlike the Deerwood website advertises you can indeed hear road noise. The premium spaces in the back are away from the road noise. Not all spaces are good for big rigs. We had to pick and choose our spot for our 40FT fifth wheel as the road around the park is quite narrow. Some spaces now have new, wider concrete pads. We noted that the few pull through spaces were very narrow, close together and also near the highway at the front of the park. Overall a nice spot to spend a night or two in Eugene if you pick your space carefully.
We found this park to be a good stop for a night or two. While the sites are very basic gravel/grass with some sprinkler issues (read mud), the bay view and the adjacent good food and service at the casino kind of made up for it. Our clubhouse sandwiches came in at about five pounds and lasted four days for $9.95! Dinner was great as well, with reasonable wine prices. The adjacent fuel stop is also Indian owned and we found fuel to be 20 cents less than other stations. Other guests here said this was the lowest priced diesel within 100 miles! Boats go by the nearby grassy beach area. Don’t worry about the train tracks as only one local freight train goes by each day. We planned on taking the drive south down highway 20 and the ferry to Port Townsend but had to turn around. We did not have a reservation and the wait time at 11AM was stretched until 9:30 PM! Book ferries ahead of time!
A great stop for the night. Well off I-5 for peace and quiet. Nice walking along the adjacent river dike from the park all the way to two shopping centers that straddle I-5. We booked a pull through site but were told we’d have to back in our 31 ft Airstream trailer in a smaller site as they wanted the pull through’s for the big rigs. Next morning there were half a dozen pull through sites unused! Nice big Safeway in the main shopping center with good diesel prices. Don’t miss the friendly service and fun bar tender in the cantina at the nearby Azteca Mexican Restaurant. Well worth the five-minute drive (behind Safeway).
We choose Harrison Hot Springs to meet friends from Vancouver that like to stay at the lodge. The Springs RV Resort seemed to be the best choice after looking online. Pulling into the gravel driveway I said to my wife: "Oh-No!" Most sites have a trailer parked for the season with the rest of the sites were overbuilt with decks, tents, gazebos, fences grills and more. Some people combined two or more sites for a really big family and/or friends compound. Heavy smokers abound. Our site was all plain gravel with one tree and an old wood picnic table. Getting backed in was not easy but the local residents were friendly and helpful. The music and TV was constant from nearby sites from 8AM to the 11PM quiet time. That said, at 11PM it did get very quiet. This seems to be a park the long-term family and friends return to decade after decade. On the plus side, the new owners have invested in a nice new pool and clubhouse area (children filled). If the rest of the park were this nice, The Springs would be a worthy stop when visiting BC. That said the other local parks did not look much better from the outside either.
Nice location across the highway from the lake. Price seems to be based on being the only game in town. Spaces are very tight in the lower section. The upper section while having more room has a lot of tent camping around the area with lots of activity. Since RV's can also have a tent on site this park tends to pack them in so to speak. Good for location, not so good if you're looking for peace and quiet.
Our third stay at this RV Resort. We enjoy stopping here on our way to/from Palm Springs. Great owners/staff. Nice gravel pads with concrete patios. Nice pool, wonderful fitness center and massage room. A decent on-site restaurant/bar. Easy access from the highway and yet its pretty quite here. Will be even nicer when the newer trees provide shade in future years.
Kit Fox is an OK choice for an overnight stop. An older RV park with a new office. No pool or amenities. Gravel pads with some ruts. Major compliant is no AC in the restrooms, which on a 100º day made the hot and humid with the showers in the same room. Good restaurants walking distance from the park. A good point is the park is just far enough from I-5 to be pretty quiet.
This is our second visit here. We choose to stay here both times after picking up new Airstream trailers at Sutton RV in Eugene. Just wanted to make sure we didn’t have any new trailer bugs that needed attention. We will go elsewhere next visit to Eugene. The I-5 noise is really bad as the park sits right up against the highway. When the big triple trailers go by our rig actually vibrated at night. I can’t imagine how much exhaust fumes people breath in by staying here. Location, location, location. That said the park is also run down. The AC in the laundry room does not work, the ‘fitness center’ is a closet and the restrooms need a remodel. Three seems to be a lot of long term residents which is OK, but the two small laundry rooms were very busy and we had to watch a wait for machines. Got to be a better choice in Eugene.
This is the future of RV Parks. The Indian Casino’s have the funds to do it right and they did! Every prospective park owner/developer should check this out. From the pads and patios to the best picnic tables we’ve seen (they even accept your umbrella), this park is a very welcome stop for RV’ers. We reserved two days and added a third as we enjoyed our stay so much. The only negative was no outdoor pool and a small fitness center, which I understand most RV’ers don’t use anyway. My thinking is that we’ll see more parks like this at Indian Casino’s throughout the country as they see an almost full park daily that brings extra business to their casino, restaurants and spa. Well done Seven Feathers!
This very nice park would get a 10 if it were not for the almost constant noise factor. We stayed here for a month. After a few days we became tired of the almost constant noise. Most days it starts at 7AM with the trash trucks pickups and the back up alarms (maybe schedule them later) and staff collecting pinecones. At 8AM the lawn mowers start, followed by leaf blowers that seam to go on about six to eight hours a day on and off. Every time someone checks out, the leaf blowers are back. The good news is the sites are cleaned of pinecones, but the bad news is this goes on almost all day long. Sitting here working on my computer, I’ve seen some sites cleaned three times by three different leaf blowers apparently looking for something to do. The combination of noise and exhaust make us have to close/open all our windows and doors about a half dozen time each day. Park management: How about planning and swat teaming most of these actions at once instead of spreading the noise all day long! Note: This summer a big messy construction project is tearing up the streets on two sides of the park. Noise and dust from 7AM to 6PM most days. The approach road for large RV’s is pretty bad with big dirt potholes. This of course is not the parks fault, but it looks like this is a summer long project. If your rig is under 12FT-10, come in the back way via Knott/Baker Road to avoid the bad road.
Any port in a storm! I'd only stop here again if I had to. Freeway noise for starters. Older and typical KOA. Sites are dirt and some have new gravel. My site #30 had so much gravel I got stuck half way through and switched to low 4-wheel drive. Without my big Super duty F250 diesel I would not have made it through the 6-inch tire ruts. The site next to mine was hard pack dirt. The sewer hook up is so far foreword that I'll have to move in the AM to empty the tank before I could leave.
Rated 10 just for our riverfront space. Park is a bit run down and the front of the park needs a bulldozer. Get down to the river-front spaces though and the view and sounds are awesome. No highway noise and friendly folks running the place. Try the skillet for breakfast / lunch. Dinner at nearby Holiday Farms Resort was not great. Will return!
A nice spot to rest up for two nights after a tough trip through Hells Canyon in our coach. Although surrounded by industry and retail, the lakeside location is nice. A 16-mile bike/walking path runs in front of the park and continues along the riverfront. Costco and markets are walking distance. Sites are a bit tight but the concrete pads and grass areas are good. If all RV parks were of this caliber more coaches would be "on the road."
Most riverfront sites have so many trees the view is hidden. The view from the beach is of an ugly old timber mill that you hear 24/7. Not noisy enough to keep you awake at night, but it takes away from enjoying the riverbank or beach. RV gravel sites need an update. On the upside the park is near town and you can swim in the river. The beach was mostly enjoyed by dogs playing fetch all day long with their owners.
Good overnight spot on Hwy 84. Yes there is 24/7 road noise in the background and some trains-mostly whistles from the fright yard. Don't miss dinning at Foley's in downtown La Grande which is about 5 minutes by car. Lot's of fuel, Wal-Mart, Starbucks and an RV service business nearby. Good rest stop for visiting Hell's Canyon. Friendly staff leads you to your space and helps you line up your hook ups.
Newer park that's good for one nighters. In the heart of BC's so-so wine country. Most of the nearby vineyards fire off "boomers" from sun up to sundown to keep the birds away. Two days there about put us over the edge. Pretty sterile park with close pads, little shade or landscape. 2-lane highway in front, small airport in the back. If you are heading towards Penticton, BC, watch out for all the elderly drivers who should not be driving. One guy turned left directly in our path and did $91,000 damage to our new coach. The police told us it happens on a regular basis there.
