INDIAN WATER RV RESORT, Indio, CA 

Now for a bad experience we checked into a Western Horizon park located in Indio to find out about the park and its available memberships which they sell. We had a 3 day free pass so we could stay there free for 3 nights if we promised to take in a tour at the sales office which we had to wait 2 days for as the salesman was out of town.
 
Anyway it was 12:30PM and we went for our meeting! The first thing we got from the office was for us to sign a form .We said we would listen to what he had to say, but we were not signing our name on anything, for anything, unless we knew what it was about. Well the salesman came out and was extremely rude to us, with verbal insults and inuendos, but we held fast. No signiture on any paper unless we were going to buy. To make a long story shor,t if you can believe this, we were told to get out of the park. I said, if that’s what he wanted fine, we would go. We just couldn’t believe the rudeness of it all. So my wife packed the motorhome inside and I did the outside chores .As I was unhooking the water and sewer hose the park manager came to see me, very rude and demanded $90 for our 2 days. I said no way was I going to pay that. She rudely said we wasted her time! I replied on the contrary..you wasted our time by not telling us beforehand when we checked in what was expected of us. I said look at our Rig, it’s a 43 foot tag axle Dutch Star four slides with a brand new Harley ultra Classic in tow. Does that look like we are crooks and cant afford this. No I said ..you were rude to us and I wont pay this!! So she gave my wife and I  -   1/2 hour to vacate or she would call the cops!! I am 60years old I don’t need this.

SPRINGHILL RV PARK

This park is in Cochrane, Alberta and we stayed here because we found it online. We discovered that there is a difference when you look at pictures on a website and the reality. This park has full hookup with 30 AMP electric, water, sewer and WiFi. No cable, but you can get four Calgary stations with the antenna. The sites were gravel, but there was no weed control and there were a lot of weeds growing through the gravel. They also had a log type fence at the exit of every site and they did not leave a lot of room to leave your site through this fence.

CANADA WEST RV PARK 

This park is just on the west side of Revelstoke, BC. They have full hookups, with 30 amp service, water, sewer and cable. There is a swimming pool on site, washrooms and a laundry. The maintenance is pretty good and the staff friendly. It makes a good overnight stop if traveling the Trans Canada Highway. Revelstoke is known for the railroad museum and you can hear the trains in the park. There is also a bit of highway noise that you have to deal with.

THUNDERBIRD RV PARK 

Hi Karen & Ron , I was reading your website about campground reviews. I thought I would let you know about this one. We just got back from Campbell river. We stayed at Thunderbird Campground for 7 days. What a beautiful place to stay. If you guy’s are ever going to Campbell River try it out. It's a real nice place to stay. It's got full hook up 30/ 50 Amp service, water, sewer, wireless internet, plus cable. The bathrooms are spotless. The people are real friendly, the campground is real clean. Yes.. dog & cats are welcome. We have a 5th wheel, 24 feet no problems parking, with a ocean view. They have summer and winter rates also. It's real close to a big shopping center. OK, thanks Fred

 LAKE OKANAGAN PROVINCIAL PARK

Lake Okanagan Provincial Park, between Peachland and Summerland is right on Okanagan Lake. They have two campgrounds here, the South Campground and the North Campground. The most popular for RV'ers is probably the South Campground. They do have big enough sites for most sizes of RV's. The sites have no hookups which is normal for a Provincial Park in British Columbia, but they are quite large even though in this particular park, they try and get as many in as possible. All the sites are gravel with tables and the maintenance is okay. There were some weeds growing through the gravel in the sites  and we did notice on this trip that they seem to have stopped trimming trees. We had to do a bit of a haircut on one in our site so they would not scratch the motor home. There are very nice washrooms with free showers and they were quite clean when we were there. All in all if you enjoy a bit of rustic camping once in awhile then the Provincial Campgrounds are a good way to go.

KELOWNA RV PARK & CABINS

This is another new park.

Only been open since March this is a small park with just six sites, built in an Orchard, in Kelowna, BC.

Rob and Karen Hatch are doing an excellent job getting this little park to be an intimate, homey place to stay. The park has full hookups with 30 AMP power, water, sewer and cable TV. There is a great swimming pool with a nice gazebo with very comfortable couches to rest on, tables and chairs next to the huge BBQ that is available to the guests, and lots of pool chairs and lounges to make spending the day at the pool very inviting.

There are new cabins on site as well for rent and that will make this a great place to meet your non RV'er friends for a great getaway. They can stay in the cabins while you have your RV site.

Because of the small nature of this park, it is advisable to make reservations as it does not take long to fill up. But when this park is full it is still intimate and quiet. It is close to all that Kelowna has to offer and would make a great base for touring the Okanagan.

The only down side we found was the trees at the entrance were quite low and becuase the driveway is narrow you have to drive on the dirt of the orchard to avoid the tree branches from doing interesting things to your air conditioners on top of your rig. But having said that, there was room to avoid them. The only other litttle problem was the sites are not clearly marked and there was some confusion on where and how to park. This will probably be rectified once they are totally finished. The sites have no tables so make sure you bring your own.

ROYALWOOD GOLF & RV RESORT

Rack Em and Stack Em

This park between Chilliwack and Abbotsford is definitely set up with the Rack Em and Stack Em philosophy. The sites are close together and they are almost like a gravel parking lot. We did have room to put out our slide and canopy, but our slide was probably infringing on our neighbors site.

 The person who checked us in was more than accomadating, trying to give us the site we wanted and was very friendly.

The park has 30 and 50 AMP service with full cable and excellent wireless internet. They have full hookup with water and sewer.

One thing we did notice was the freeway noise, as the park is very close to the freeway. The advantage to this is the ease to get out to do some touring in the surrounding area.

What we did not like was the mosquitos. They were plenty and hungry and the only time we could sit outside was in the hot afternoon when the wind was blowing. As soon as it started to cool off in the evening it was into the RV to keep from being eaten alive. Not sure what the season is for these insects, but we were in the park July 1st and they were a force to recon with.

Because of the close quarters of the sites, the mosquitos, and the maintenance was lacking with washrooms not clean and weeds growing in the sites.

 SWAN LAKE RECREATION RESORT

This is a first class park on the shores of Swan Lake in Vernon, BC.

They are developing and selling the RV Lots, but they have a rental pool and take overnighters.

The sites are all concrete and very large. They all have grass areas and full hookup with 30 and 50 AMP service, water, sewer, and cable. They do have wireless internet for a fee.

The park has a pool and hot tub and very clean washrooms. There is also a laundry in the main office building.

There is really no negatives for this park as it is easy access regardless of the size of your rig, no trees or sharp turns and the park is built for the larger rigs.

It is an adult oriented park although children are welcome in the park if you are staying short term.

Maintenance is excellent and all facilities and sites are very well kept.

TWIN LAKES GOLF AND RV RESORT

If you are a golfer and you like quiet this is the park for you.

Located on Hwy 3A just out of Penticton on the way to Keremeos this park has gravel sites with grass to put your chairs on and picnic tables.

They have full hookup with 30 AMP service, water, and sewer. There was a cable hookup, but we could not get any channels at all with the cable or with they antenna. There was also no FM radio reception at the park. We could only get 1 AM station on the radio. They told us they have wireless internet in the park, but as we did not have our computers we could not check it out. We were also told we could get two TV stations which we could not.

But this park is on a very nice golf course with a restaurant (greek food and spices)

Maintenance of this park was fair in the sites, but the washrooms were really clean although they just had concrete floors.

BEL AIR CEDAR MOTEL & RV PARK

This park is great if you are meeting other people that do not have an RV.

They have motel units, delightful cabins and a full service RV Park.

The RV Park has pull through sites with 30 & 50 AMP electricial, water, sewer and cable. They also have wireless internet in the park. We were quite a long way from the office where the wireless modem was and although I did connect to the modem I could not get access to the internet from our site. Having said that I use a laptop with Windows Vista and that may have been the problem. Next trip out we will take our other laptop which has Windows XP and we will try both.

There is all kinds of fruit trees on the property that guests are more than welcome to pick to their hearts content when they are in season.

They have a super clean swimming pool and hot tub that was welcome when we were there as it was very hot.

They have a club house with tables for cards or what have you, a pool table and a TV for get togethers with friends.

The management was very friendly and helpful at check in and throughout our stay.

Maintenance was a little lacking in the sites themselves with the grass being a bit long and unkempt, but overall not to bad. The maintenance in the pool area and washrooms was excellent.

The roads are gravel with gravel sites with grass on the side to put your chairs on.

Over all this was a pleasant park to stay at although getting around with a big rig one has to be careful, as most of the large pull through sites had small units in them that maybe should have been put into the smaller sites.
