Best RV Resorts

By Campendium

For our September Best Campgrounds Series, we asked Allison from Retired Bicycle and David L. from Santa Barbara, and John & Pam from Oh The Places They Go to share with us their favorite RV resorts.

Seven Feathers RV Resort – Canyonville, OR

Although it seems that every RV park in the US with a swimming pool calls itself a “resort,” Seven Feathers in Cayonville, OR can legitimately make the claim. It’s a gorgeous place to stay. One drives in under the porte cochere, registers, and the friendly people driving the golf carts take you to your site. Pull through sites are long enough for a Class A towing a pickup truck to not unhook. They are concrete, and level. Interior roads are paved. Water pressure is good, power is good, and there are no pesky over hanging trees to interfere with your satellite antenna.

In the main building is a heated indoor pool, hot tub, and fitness room. Restrooms, showers and the laundry facilities are spotless. There are things for the kids to do, places to sit and congregate; it’s a nice place to just be.
If you are so inclined, there is a shuttle circulating through the RV park which will take you across the street to the casino. In addition to gaming, there are five restaurants available for your dining pleasure.

We love this place. Visually, it’s very appealing due to the extensive landscaping. Walking along the creek is very pleasant. Staff is friendly and welcoming. It’s easy to get to from the freeway, but is quiet at night. – Allison, Retired Bicycle

Wine Country RV Resort – Paso Robles, CA

While we have a number of RV resorts we like, our favorite has to be the Wine Country RV Resort in Paso Robles, two miles east of the town on Hwy 46 (there’s another place owned by Sun RV Resort as well, north of town on Hwy 101–called Vines RV Resort but we like this one the most.) What appeals to us is not only the resort itself, but its location–Paso Robles has become quite the “tony” resort town with many, many fine wineries (, one of which (Eos Estate Winery) is adjacent to the resort . . . how cool is that? Wine taste to your heart’s delight and then walk back through the vineyard to your RV! There’s a wine tasting tour that picks up at the office, too. Also across the street is the Ravine Water Park for tubing and splash fun, although the resort’s large pool and jacuzzi, plus adult spa grotto are really nice in themselves. Our local Airstream unit of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International makes annual use of the resort with its meeting rooms (2) and outdoor bbq areas. There’s also a small outdoor amphitheater amidst the oaks.

There’s two major sections of the resort: upper and lower–the quieter of the two. Most of the pads are concrete. There’s also a row of back-in sites which look out on the adjacent vineyard. Mention should be made of the three dog-parks, partially shaded with park benches. And I couldn’t forget one of my favorite aspects of the Paso Robles area: it is a cyclist’s dream! The Memorial Day weekend Great Western Bike Rally offers over two dozen routes through lightly traveled gently rolling hills and flat valley sections. There’s also the late April Wildflower Century ride in nearby Creston.

OK, there are a few drawbacks to the resort: it’s relatively expensive. Also, summer daily high temperatures can be quite hot. That said, we LOVE it! – David L.

Portal RV Resort & Campground – Moab, UT

Portal RV Resort is located right outside Moab’s downtown section and an easy bike ride away. The park has two sections. The north campground is open to anyone with gravel pull thu sites. Most have full hook ups but there is a row without sewer. The south side of the park is the Resort half where many of the sites are privately owned. There are also several Casita homes. All of these sites are 40’x 70′ and paved. There are specific requirements to which vehicles are accepted in this section. We stay in the resort side and so enjoy the over sized concrete sites with lots of room to spread out and a good distance from our neighbor. There is a beautiful pool that has rotating colored lights in the evening, as well as a hot tub. The park is located between town and Arches NP. It is very close to many hiking and Jeeping Trails. One is never at a lose for outdoor activities. The Resort is surrounded by beautiful views on all sides and is far enough from the road for quiet. The deer come right up to the fence in the evening. We have stayed in the Resort twice and are returning next year for a month. There is very good Verizon signal in the area. – John & Pam, Oh The Places They Go
