Shady Lane RV Camp, Barstow CA

Stay Date:  Nov 2018

Our Rating:  GOOD – 6

Entry to the park is narrow and there's not much room to pull up and clear the road if someone is ahead of you. Be prepared to pull off the road to the right prior to the entrance if you see another rig in line. Tight but doable for big rigs; some of the long-term workers park their pickup trucks near the access roads. Gravel, level sites long enough to leave the tow attached to the motorhome. WiFi worked well until the residents returned in the evening, but Verizon cell/data was strong. Cable TV, a few OTA channels in English, and not much to block TV satellites. Fairly easy access off I-5 in a less than picturesque area. An acceptable overnight in a pinch.  Overpriced at $38/Night  Shady Lane RV Camp

Shady Haven RV Park, Bakersfield CA

Our Rating:  GOOD – 6

Shady Haven1Friendly owners at check in and escort to site. Paved interior roads and level concrete pad with patio and table. Good Verizon cell/data and park WiFi. No obstructions to TV satellites Shady Haven2and plenty of OTA channels. Very secure with key-card gate and tall walls with razor wire. We really liked this park and it's owners, but the constant rumble of nearby trains Shady Haven3is a deterrent to a return.  still, a value at the Passport America rate of $24/Night.  Shady Haven RV Park

Stay Date:  Nov 2018

Our Rating:  GOOD –7

Kit Fox1Easy access from the interstate and professional check in. Paved interior roads, level and long pull-thrus with convenient hookups. Cable TV was limited, adequate OTA channels, and Kit Fox2no obstructions to satellites. Sites are close together, no table or grass. Verizon cell and Wi-Fi was strong, park Wi-Fi spotty. Significant noise from trucks due to Kit Fox3the huge terminal in back of the park. OK for an overnight at the PA rate; wouldn't stay here at the full rate.  Passport America rate $24/night.  Kit Fox RV Park

RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino, Corning CA

Stay Date:  Nov 2018

Our Rating:  GOOD –8

Corning Rolling Hills1Located behind a casino, check in is to the left of the entry at the "welcome center". Check in was efficient and friendly, and we were fortunate to have a reservation since the parkCorning Rolling Hills2 was full due to nearby wildfire evacuations. Paved interior roads are in need of repair, sites are all gravel pull-thrus, fairly level and very close although Corning Rolling Hills3separated by shrubs. Hookups were conveniently placed. No working Wi-Fi but Verizon cell/data were strong. No cable TV, some OTA channels, and no obstructions to satellites. Quiet at night with occasional truck noise from the nearby station. Nice casino with average food. A good overnight choice with easy access to I-5.  The location makes the $35/night acceptable.  RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino

Hi-Way Haven RV Park, Sutherlin OR

Stay Date:  Nov 2018

Our Rating:  GOOD – 9

Hi-Way Haven2This is a large, well-maintained and professionally staffed park that is a bargain at the Passport America rate. Access from I-5 is easy, and interior roads are Hi-Way Haven3wide and paved. Sites are long, level gravel, fairly close, but each has a small fenced patio area complete with table and chairs. Check in was quick and friendly. The drive-in movie screen wasn't being used during our stay, but would beHi-Way Haven1 an attractive feature. Park WiFi was spotty, but Verizon Cell/Data was strong. The cable TV was adequate and there were a few OTA channels. Most sites have no obstructions to the TV satellites. The propane price was reasonable and access was easy. Lots of long term residents, but sites were well kept.  Another great Passport America park, $23/night.  Hi-Way Haven RV Park

Blue Ox RV Park, Albany OR

Stay Date: Sep 2018

Our Rating:  GOOD – 9

An interesting park - more of a mobile home park populated by RVs. Many permanent residents, but with nicely landscaped lots. Short term guests have paved, level pull-thrus with grass and trees. Sites are close together, and interior roads have to be navigated slowly. Nice indoor pool, spotless laundry(s), and friendly residents. Good WiFi, OTA TV, and clear shot at satellites. Verizon cell/data were good. Close to I-5 and shopping/dining. A very nice park.  $37/Night  Blue Ox RV Park
