Five Star RV Resorts That Excel

A key factor in planning an RV road trip is selecting RV parks and resorts.

If you’re looking for a five-star RV resort with all the amenities including 50-amp electric, water, sewer, cable TV, and Wi-Fi, there are several things to consider before making your decision.

An earlier post on Vogel Talks RVing detailed the nine characteristics of a five-star RV resort: quality customer service, adequate space between sites, pull-through sites that are spacious and well maintained, utilities are centrally located and up to date, quality Internet at all sites, convenient way to dispose of trash, clean and well-maintained laundry facilities, picnic tables, and pet area.

During the past several years we’ve had the pleasure of staying at numerous 5-star RV resorts. In an earlier post we detail five such parks. In today’s post we offer five more memorable RV resorts.

The RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino, Corning, California

The RV Park at Rolling Hills Casino is easy-on, easy-off (I-5 at Exit 628); a 5-star park with long pull-through sites (up to 75 feet in length) with 30/50 amp-electric service, water, and sewer conveniently located; no tall trees to interfere with obtaining satellite. Security patrols the park on a regular basis.

Known as the Olive Capital, Corning is home to the largest olive processing plant in the U.S. Nearby, Lucero Olive Oil is an informative, tasty stop.

New in 2006, Hee Hee Illahee RV Resort is situated about a mile east of I-5 (Exit 258). The name literally means “A Fun Place to Be”. Big rig friendly with fairly wide paved streets, long pull-through paved sites in the 75-foot range, and conveniently located 30/50-amp electric service, water, two sewer connections, and cable TV (69 channels). Wi-Fi signal worked well from our site (#56). We would return to this 5-star resort in a heartbeat.

If your passion in quality artisan cheeses, check out Willamette Valley Cheese, 13 miles from the resort on SR-221.

Toutle River RV Resort, Castle Rock, Washington

Toutle River RV Resort is a 5-star resort built in 2009. The utility hookups are centrally located with 80-90 foot sites and adequate Wi-Fi. No large trees to obstruct satellite. The only negative is the park is located near train tracks and trains run all day and night. However, we would return in a heart-beat.

Conveniently located near Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, Toutle River RV Resort is located off I-5 at Exit 52, easy-on, easy-off.

We would return in a heartbeat. Reservations over a weekend are required well in advance. Jackson Rancheria is conveniently located in the heart of Gold Country.
