Crooked River Ranch RV Park – 1475 SW Hays Rd, Terrebonne, Oregon 97760

Just 30 miles north of Bend, Oregon, just off the US-97, and maybe halfway down the canyon, lies an RV and Golf resort that is a real find! 18 classic holes of golf, and an RV destination worth checking out!

Crooked River sports a lot more than golf and RV. Suffice it to say you really need to check out their website:

Carlie and I joined a very special group of RV friends/co-owners here for several days this summer, and I must tell you we will be back! All you need do is look around at the beauty in this canyon to get why I’m so enthused. Do this one, friends!

OUR RATING: 9.0 ($$)

Overall views….. consistently stunning…

Mallard Creek RV Resort

Mallard Creek RV Resort – 31966 Bellinger Scale Rd., Lebanon, OR. 97355

About 45 miles North of Eugene, in central Oregon, (maybe 8 miles East of I-5 on highway 34) lies the small community of Lebanon, home to Mallard Creek Golf Course & RV Resort. It’s of interest if you golf, or RV, but if you are into both, it’s just not to be missed!

Mallard Creek (the RV side) isn’t real long on amenities (no pool, no spa, no Pickleball, etc.) but for a quiet, spacious, & friendly RV resort with it’s own challenging 18-hole par-71 golf course, this is your spot!

We recently spent a month there this summer (August, 2019) and you may be sure we committed to return in 2020! To give you an example of the golfing/glamping lifestyle they offer, your stay here includes unlimited golf! And the price can’t be beat: Monthly rate (all sites – 2019 numbers) just $1250 (1 golfer – 2nd golfer +$150/month)! Guys & Gals, that’s like $42/day, full hook ups! Did I mention they deliver your cart to your site, and pick it up when you are through. Damn!

Have I piqued your interest? If you are into really high-end coaches, while there you should check out the Marathon Motorcoach factory, just a short hop back to the I-5, and south to Coburg, OR. It’s a really neat tour!

Winchester Bay RV Resort

Winchester Bay RV Resort, 120 Marina Way, Winchester Bay, OR 97647

Along Oregon’s Pacific shoreline, about 90 miles SW of Eugene, lies Winchester Bay RV Resort.  This park is a real find for fisherman, but it’s not lacking in appeal for the RVer just looking for an oasis along the coast.  With 138 well-landscaped sites, they are big-rig friendly, offer most amenities (no pool or spa, but most else) and have a really great atmosphere.  The location is A-1, and easily accessible from either the North (US-101 along the Ocean) or from the East (OR-38 from I-5).  Both are very scenic.  I think I’m partial to OR-38, even though it’s undergoing quite a bit of roadwork right now, (Sept 2018) with some potential delays, but it’s really got a lot of charm.  Although there is no shortage of RV parks around Winchester Bay, overall, this park is several cuts above the others in the area. 

One caveat:  This place can be really hard to book during crabbing season, unless you allow enough time.  Even a year out may not be enough, depending on rig-size, etc.

Bend/Sisters Garden RV Resort

Bend/Sisters Garden RV Resort, 67667 Highway 20, Bend, OR  97703

Just 18 miles northwest of Bend, Oregon, on Highway 20, you can find Bend/Sisters Garden RV Resort.  105 level asphalt full-hookup sites, both pull-through and back-in.  (Big-Rig friendly)  No shortage of amenities, pool, spa, lake (with a cool fountain), etc.  Bend is a really neat city in central Oregon, and a location I seem to find myself passing through on my way everywhere.  The park is super-comfortable!  Oh, Yeah…when driving highway 20 to Bend, stop by the Bendistillery.  Its a great little spot where you can taste (free) and/or buy hand-crafted spirits and remarkable cocktails.  (AKA Crater Lake Spirits)

Deerwood RV Park

Deerwood RV Park, 35059 Seavey Loop Rd., Eugene, OR  97405

Deerwood is a quiet, comfortable, squeaky-clean small to mid-sized park, south of Eugene, just off the I-5.   I counted 75 nicely-paved roadways and pads with full hook-ups, (no pool or spa, at least when we were there in 2017) and a very good overall feel.  Pull-thru sites are limited (I think there are eight) but the back-ins were plenty long enough for our 45′ coach.  This is one of the most relaxing parks we have visited!

Seven Feathers RV Resort

Seven Feathers RV Resort, 325 Quintioosa Blvd., Canyonville, OR  97417

Located about 70 miles north of Medford Oregon on I-5, Canyonville is home to Seven Feathers Casino and Resort (and not much else)   This resort is a true luxury resort, accepting the full scope of motorhomes, trailers and fifth wheels.  The RV resort is tucked into the hills across the highway from the Casino, far enough to avoid freeway noise.  All the amenities, plus all level concrete pads, (191 sites, 104 pull-thru)  To say that the park is ‘manicured’ doesn’t really say enough.  This park is immaculate, staff is professional and friendly, and rates are within reason.  Please spend some time reviewing their website, and if traveling thru southern Oregon on the I-5, make the stop.  It’s well worth it.

Pacific Shores RV Resort

pacific shores

Pacific Shores RV Resort, 6225 North Coast Hwy, Newport, Oregon 97365

Pacific Shores lies right on the coast in Newport, Oregon.  (on the ocean, northwest of Eugene)  This is a Luxury Motorcoach resort, limited to Class ‘A’ or ‘C’ coaches, 25′ and longer.  All sites are full hookup, some ‘Oceanside’, some ‘ocean-view’, some ‘clubhouse’ area, and the rest ‘premium’.  None appear to be pull-thru.  The sites are level, concrete, well maintained and beautifully landscaped.  Note that the Oceanfront sites are ‘pull-in’, offering a windshield full of the Pacific Ocean!  If you are looking for things to do, there is a beach access trail and walking trails in the woods above the beach.  The Clubhouse offers a pool, spa, and sauna.  Basketball and/or Pickleball court.  I urge you to check out their website.

While a really neat oceanfront experience, don’t forget that California’s Pacific coast suggests some weather considerations.  The ocean sites, which we opted for on our visit, can be cool and breezy, even in the summer.  Morning fog is common, but in our case, burned off in the early afternoon.  All in all, we felt this park to be a lot of bang for the buck.  We will go back!

UPDATE: (June 2017)  We are back again, this time doing a full week.  Did an oceanfront site again, and really glad we did!  From our coach windshield, we have discovered what Whale watching is really like!  No joke, we’ve had about 15 sightings an hour!  What fun!   Weather?  This trip has thus far been better than our last.  Yes, there is a bit of fog in the mornings, maybe some in late afternoon, but for the most part, just really comfortable.  Highs about 70.  I am bumping my rating up on what is already very good, to about Good As It Gets!  Come check this one out.  You’ll thank me, I think!

Crown Villa RV Resort

crown villaCrown Villa RV Resort, 60801 Brosterhous Road, Bend, Oregon 97702

Located in the middle of Oregon, this resort is a perfect example of how upscale and unique Bend can be.  This park is top notch in all regards.  Want a really big site?  How about 130′ of paver-brick, with a special parking place for your tow or towed vehicle?  Several levels of sites are available, plus all the amenities you could ask for.  Absolutely one of our very favorite stops!  Oh yeah, very quiet as well!
