This was one of two parks in Rawlins. I had a 50-50 chance of picking the best one. I picked the wrong one. First impressions were bad - junkie, sign in disrepair, cluttered office and just plain dirty. No WiFi working. The desk clerk stated they were "working on it." So I called the provider for a status. It had been out for weeks, with no resolution in sight. Sites were so close together you couldn't even put your awning out and it was HOT. Lots of working folks living there and many of the sites look like a junkyard. Obviously no one is encouraging residents to keep their sites looking tidy. Very noisy park, too. Traffic, parties, kids, music, just not a good park. STAY AWAY!
This park was a good stop for me between Southern California and Ogden, UT. Close enough to visit Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. But...... I was parked in site #7 and the road noise was almost unbearable. My water hookup was literally underneath the next site's picnic table. The sites are very close together, but they are nice and long to pull thru, and very level. Panguitch is a cute little town, but I spent my time hiking in the National Parks. Bryce Canyon is 30 minutes away; Zion is an hour.
Old, run down, and in the middle of nowhere. But in a pinch, this park is okay for an overnight. The "mature" owner is behind the times. Cash or check only. Does give a Good Sam & military discount. If you need WiFi, you need to pay $5/day on-line to the local service. He also charges extra for 50 amp. This park is too expensive for what you get. (But then again, it is California!) The best thing about this park is that it is dead silent. I did get a great night's sleep.
Very disappointed , and it wasn't worth the cost. Great location, close to Redwoods, Smith River, Crescent City, etc. But the park is in shambles. All the dumpsters were overflowing with garbage, the laundry room is filthy, some RV sites (occupied) were very unsightly with lots of junk, bikes, motorcycles, kids toys, etc., scattered everywhere. There were 3 RVs in our party, and when we made the reservations, we had asked for sites close together. We even called the night prior to our arrival to confirm, and we were reassured that our sites were next to one another. When we arrived, this was not the case, and we were given all kinds of excuses. Not a big deal, but another example of poor management. Apparently it is for sale again, after just one year of current ownership. Hope someone with some sense buys it!!
Spent July 4th weekend at Honey Bear, and had a great time. No real view of the ocean, but an easy walk right to the beach. Enjoyed a great dinner at the on-site German restaurant and bought some of the homemade knackwurst, sausage and brauts. The place needs a little TLC (landscaping, site spruce-up, painting, etc) but it was fine. The entire staff and all the campers were really friendly! Gold Beach is really close and has a brewery and other things to do.
Ratings were high for this place, but I don't think I'll come back here! It's really a trailer park with a few RV sites. Check-in staff was all business - not very friendly. Site was nice and shady, but that was the best part of this park. I didn't dare leave anything out at night - lots of "transients" walking thru. The park repaved the road while I was here and didn't even have the courtesy of giving me a head's up. (Roads in and around park were blocked most of one day) The park is north of Portland, so getting anywhere south is an absolute nightmare. The 5, the 205, and the 84 are parking lots almost every time of day. Good grief. Airport, train, traffic, and screaming kids in pool make this park too loud for me.
I had read the earlier reviews, so I stopped here on my way to Bend, OR. Reviews and website are very deceiving. I had reserved a pull thru - it wasn't a pull thru unless they wanted me to pull thru a maintenance building on my way out! Dirt and very sloped sites, no WiFi (but advertised!), and unkempt. Old cars parked around the park makes it look like a junkyard. There was no breaker box at my site's power pole, and woman that checked me in did not know where it was. I finally found it on a pole centrally located between multiple sites. Not very handy, and someone could flip my power off if they didn't pay attention to the numbers assigned to each switch. I only stayed one night and never left my coach. Every time I stepped out of my coach, I saw a snake! Couldn't wait to leave. Terrible.
Only 4 stars because of the non-pull thru sites. Pull thru sites are $5 more per day and I don't mind backing my 33' Class A in. But.... trees too close to the pad prevent awning use, and shrubbery on driver's side are so close to the pad that they impede opening the basement doors. Looks nice, but not convenient for RV's :-( Nice park, minutes from Reno. Sparks Marina is really nice for running, walking, kayaking, swimming, etc. Great park, but very pricey - even for back in sites. $450 for 2 weeks ($32/day) was the 14 day discount! I'll probably look around for something else next time.
Stayed here enroute to Reno. Nice RV park. All the amenities (FHU/50 Amp/Laundry/WiFi/Cable) and nice concrete pads. Looked like a few are long term folks - workers at the mines, and the Army Ammo Depot. One guy got hauled off in a police cruiser while I was there :-( Kind of concerning, but it looked like this guy had been in the police department's cross-hairs for awhile. I was glad to see him go!
Golf course nearby, a couple of nice museums, and good hiking. Didn't eat out, but there were a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. There is a Safeway Grocery and Family Dollar withing walking distance too. Price was right. I would stay there again.
Stayed two nights here and enjoyed the area attractions (Death Valley, Rhyolite, Beatty Museum, etc) Nice simple park. Nothing fancy, but has level gravel sites, laundry and bath, and decent wifi. Easy pull-thrus, quiet park, and very friendly staff. I liked being lulled to sleep by the passing burros each night :-)
