RV Parks/Reviews


Our Winter Parks…

This winter we explored our Colorado River Parks in Cali and Arizona which are our free parks.  This is the first time we visited this chain of parks so we weren’t sure what to expect. We used Resort Parks International and Coast to Coast for our weeks out.   As with Thousand Trails…some were great others left much to be desired.  But I suppose that’s the theme […]


Silver Spur and Cascade Meadows RV Resorts….

We were so looking forward to visiting Bend again…we really enjoyed it on our way up and thought it would be fun to visit it on our way down and see some falls and do some hikes.  On our way down from Washington we had to take a night in Salem…so not to drive too much at one time…so we decided to do a two night […]


Oceana RV Resorts…

This was the last of our Washington Resorts…I was really looking forward to getting back to the coast…I missed the ocean.  This was a small resort with no internet service…neither AT&T or Verizon worked here.  So, Doug had to drive a few miles over and park on the Beach…yep the beach to get service so he could work.  I guess there’s a first for everything. It […]


Thunderbird and Travel Inn Resorts…

Thunderbird Resort, another Thousand Trails Resort on our journey through Washington.  This resort was split in two on either side of the road.  The river side did not have full hookups but it sure was spacious.  So we choose to stay on the river side…which was away from the amenities but it was just a short walk across the road to them.  They had a large […]


Birch Bay RV Resort…

The view from the bay at Birch Bay RV park, looks like a watercolor sunset.  Our visit to this park was interesting to say the least…they had a Phase 1 and 11 in their park, Phase 11 was obviously built to accomodate the larger rigs that are available these days.  But…because of TT’s policy that we are free to choose any site that’s available (they do […]


Grandy Creek RV Resort…

For a Thousand Trails resort…Grandy Creek really surprised us…it was very well kept, the staff was very attentive to everyone’s needs.  This was also a KOA…somehow they both shared the same park, maybe this is what made it so different.  Although, I soon found out that KOA members had to pay extra for all the amenities…I don’t know much about the KOA membership but now I […]


Seaside RV and Tall Chief RV Resorts

This is the furthest in North Oregon we’ve ever been…and I was sooo surprised at how busy the beaches were.  Not indicative of what I know to be Oregon Beaches…the coast here was full of people and dogs.  We enjoyed some beach time in between the cloudy gloomy days that still fell upon us.  Where is Summer? that was our biggest question but Doug kept reminding […]


Cascade Meadows, Bend-Sunriver and Hee Hee Illahee…

We spent most of May on the East side of Oregon.  We arrived at Cascade Meadows May 7th and spent two weeks there.  First thing we noticed is that there are no trees…meaning no shade.  The first few days were cold and snowy, yep our first snow in Luna Bella.  But when it hit the mid 80’s we noted that the fridge hummed as it struggled […]
