This is one of the most consistently high-rated RV resorts in Washington State.

It features over 100 sites, many pull-through and spacious to accommodate big rigs (up to 70 feet) and pop-outs.

Toppenish boasts at least 290 days of sunshine every year, makes this the ideal spot for an incredible outdoor vacation and Yakama Nation RV Park is regarded by many as the ideal place to enjoy it. They offer 125 camp sites with full hookups and free WiFi. Only 30 sites have cable RV TV access, so be sure to specify it if it is a real concern.

Portland Fairview RV ParkPortland Fairview RV Park – Fairview, Oregon

No trip through Oregon would be complete without at least a stop in Portland, and what would make it even better would be a STAY at a great RV park just outside town. Portland is one of America’s most eclectic and beautiful cities and it also rests in the middle of an incredible natural landscape making it easy to enjoy the call of nature one day and experience the energy of this amazing city the next. Just a warning about Portland, if you’re like me and happened to visit on one of their gorgeous summer days and you get an overwhelming urge to move there, make sure you come back and visit during the rainy season — which happens to be the other 10 months of the year.

Fairview has everything you would expect of an RV resort located so close to a major tourist hub. The grounds are well manicured and landscaped, the sites are comfortable and spacious and every imaginable amenity is available here including swimming pool, hot tub, fitness center, and clubhouse and group event facilities. Even better, they have reduced rates in effect right now so now is the time to call and book a site here!

You won’t find activities directors organizing Bocce tournaments here but you will find good old-fashioned peace and quiet and a host of camping-related activities both onsite and off. The fishing in this area is so abundant they even provide an area for fish cleaning and preparation. Amenities are very rustic and include coin-operated showers and laundry, a sports field, horseshoe pits, and group meeting facilities. It’s the perfect place to stay for a fun and rugged outdoor vacation.

The Californian RV ResortThe Californian RV Resort – Acton, CA

Located just 30 minutes outside Los Angeles, the Californian is situated amidst a vibrant equestrian community. The amenities here are simple but the atmosphere is the polar opposite of the big city. Still, the property has a particular Southern California look and feel to it and it is the perfect spot to relax after a day of sightseeing or outdoor adventures. All sites have full hookups, wireless Internet and cable TV. There is an outdoor pool and spa as well as both indoor and outdoor cooking facilities. They offer daily, weekly and monthly rates and are conveniently located just off the freeway for easy access to the city.
