Fairchild AFB Famcamp, WA

Stay Date:  April 2018

Our Rating:  GOOD – 7

Fairchild AFB1Our usual stop when passing through the area. As usual, we were asked to step out of the coach on arrival for inspection, a minor distraction.  Each time we arrive at the Famcamp there’s something different.  This time Fairchild AFB2the host site has moved, but it didn’t matter since it was pick your own site and pay at the Outdoor Rec office – the host isn’t allowed to accept money.  The sites run from OK to scary close if you park in the old section.  The new Fairchild AFB3section is standardized, but there are no trees and they’re fairly close to one another.  Hookups are good, restrooms/showers were clean, and the gravel sites were fairly level.  Some restrictions to the TV satellites in the old area, so pick your site carefully.  Lots of OTA channels, good Verizon cell/data, and the park WiFi worked well.  No more weekly rate, but at $20/night it’s tough to complain.  Fairchild AFB Famcamp 

Coyote Run RV Park, Connell WA

Stay Date:  April 2018

Our Rating:  Good – 7

Coyote Run1Not a destination park; there’s not much here, just a convenient stop that’s comfortable, easy to access, and relatively quiet.  Although close to the highway, the terrain masks most of the noise.  Interior roads are Coyote Run2paved and sites are long, level gravel, with room to leave the tow vehicle attached.  Friendly hosts, quick check in, and convenient hookups.  Good Verizon cell/data, adequate cable, and fair WiFi.  Mostly long-term Coyote Run3residents, but not a lot of outside stuff, and only a bit of noise as residents left in the morning.  Convenience makes the $38/night acceptable.  Coyote Run RV Park

Crook Country RV Park, Prineville OR

Stay Date:  April 2018

Our Rating:  GOOD – 8

Prineville Fairgrounds RV ParkUnlike most fairgrounds, the park is separated from the fair area and has ample grass and trees. Access and signage is very good, just a short distance from the downtown area. Interior roads are Prineville Fairgrounds RV Park2paved and surprisingly wide, while sites are also paved, are long and fairly level, but are just wide enough for your vehicle. Sewer is at the far rear, so if you leave a tow vehicle attached you'll need a long sewer hose. Stepping out means stepping on grass, and if the adjacent site is occupied by an RV with slides, you'll be very close together. Prineville Fairgrounds RV Park3Park WiFi was not working during our visit, but Verizon cell/data were very good. No cable TV, but OTA had a few channels and there were no obstructions to satellites. Check in was with a friendly lady who will share local information and provide maps. Quiet and dark at night, although there is some noise from early morning residents going to work. A convenient, clean park - we'll stay here again.  A bit overpriced at $38/night.  Crook County RV Park
