RV Park Recommendations on I5

We are picking up our new 5.0 TA on Dec. 30 and returning home via I5 from Washington to California at Bakersfield. Does anyone have recommendations for RV parks along this route?

This web site might help you:

When I last checked the California portion was being updated and wasn't available. We stayed at the RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino in Corning for one quick night in November. Fairly plain, but only $28 for the night with full hook-ups.

You started this same topic the first of the month: From Chilliwack to Southern California

You must be really, really excited!

Donna, I believe on that thread my main concern was weather at this time of year. I don't recall inquiring about specific RV parks at that time. However, you're correct on the excited point!

Good idea to check out RV parks close to the Siskiyous if you're coming down in late December!! You may need to scamper to shelter in a hurry.

When we start out going south we like to stop at Seven Feathers Resort, Canyonville, OR, as part of our shake down first of the year trip. It's very clean, friendly, private bathrooms and has a warm swimming pool. If you enjoy gambling they have a free shuttle to the casino so they can take more of your money or to go out to dinner. It is a resort, however, with all that entails. They do try to separate us little guys from the humongous class As and fivers.

Another place near the freeway is Valley of the Rogue State Park south of Grant's Pass. We've only driven through but it looks like a typical Oregon state park…pleasant, clean, good for a day or two.

I'll be staying at one near Weed CA on Monday for an overnight stop. New to me, $27, has a cafe. Website looks like something from the 50s.

I was the one who started the From Chilliwack to Southern California thread, with the (selfish) primary goal of proudly showing our new 19'. The thread turned into a lengthy discussion about routes

I highly recommend the Allstays Camp and RV | RV Parks Campgrounds App. It was great in a pinch and provides all the information you need - not just for RV parks, but campgrounds, state parks, fuel options, rest areas, etc. You can more-or-less filter it any way you please depending on what information you need. When we traveled up and back, we were surprised at the number of RV parks right along I5 the whole way. There will not be a shortage, and at the time of year you are going, they will not be crowded. You should be able to roll in wherever you need to whenever you want. Most have after hours instructions posted around their offices if you roll in late.

Good luck and congrats!

Looks like you'll be right on the heels of the storm:

I would appreciate your review. When I go to Bandon, OR, I stop at the Yreka RV Park: Home
It isn't cheap, I think it was $39.00, but it is very clean and they provide coffee and the local paper in the morning. It also is relatively new. Almost all the spaces are pull-throughs. It is about the half-way mark to Eugene from Sacramento.
