RV Park Review: Moab Valley RV Resort and Campground

Friday, August 17, 2018
 It's FRIDAY and we've decided it's time for a short series on our blog called "RV Park Review" (for lack of a wittier title. haha).

We've had Penny for almost two years and have visited quite a bit of campgrounds, we thought it would be nice to share our experiences with you.

Park name: Moab Valley RV Resort and Campground
Location: Moab, UT
Dates we visited: end of June 2017

I found this RV park using Google Maps when I was trying to find a good location to camp while visiting Moab.

(picture of our RV set up on the left and our friends across from us on the right.)

After doing some research for our Utah trip, I knew we wanted to visit Arches National Park and needed a campground closeby.

Moab Valley RV Resort was perfect.

I mean, come on. Check out the backdrop.

The ladies in the office were super nice. They even had warm chocolate chip cookies waiting for everyone checking in! The check-in process was easy and fast.

The site was a perfect size for our RV + the CR-V. The site provided a picnic bench and plenty of room to sit.

The RV park had a pool that our kids enjoyed - we went at the end of June so it was extremely HOT. The pool water left much to be desired in terms of cleanliness, but I suspect that a lot of it was because of the dust from the red rocks surrounding the area.

Another con? MOSQUITOES. Seriously. Bring insect repellant. Citronella candles. Holy water. ANYTHING. I literally got bit on the first night (granted, I was the one BBQing outside at night) over 30 times! That made for an almost miserable beginning to our trip. Because Moab is right next to the Colorado River, which is pretty much standing water in the summer, mosquitoes are ALL OVER THE PLACE.

All in all, our experience was very good. Ten minutes to Arches National Park. 30 Minutes to Canyonlands National Park. 10 minutes to Downtown Moab. Definitely one of our favorite RV parks.

2017 in review.

What a year we had!

I say this all the time - we need to be better bloggers! Here's a quick collage of 2017!

What a fabulous year we had!

Yes, I know it's August, but it's time to get this blog active again. :)

RV Park Review: Fall Camping at Casini Ranch (Duncans Mills, CA)

Friday, March 23, 2018
Where: Casini Ranch, Duncans Mills, CA
When: October 2016

It's been a little over a year since we've had our RV and I just realized we haven't used this blog the way it was intended! *facepalm*

So, from here on out, I'm going to make every effort to post regularly (even though people really don't read blogs anymore, do they? haha).

This post is going to be the first of a short series of posts reviewing RV parks we've been to. We'll show you a few pictures and tell you about our stay. Hopefully this will help someone in their decision making when staying at certain RV parks because, as we all know, it's not easy to try and figure out if a park will suit your needs based on a Google or Yelp review.

Since it's been quite some time since we'd been on our trip, I can't remember what site number we were at (sorry, I know that's no help!). I do remember that we were right across the boat dock at the Russian River.

The site was large enough for our RV and even though we didn't tow a vehicle, it would have still had plenty of room to park it and also set up camp. We had friends who reserved the spot next to ours and they had a truck and a pop up trailer and had plenty of room to spare.

The site we chose was partial hookup. The sites on the riverfront are all partial hookup, whereas the sites toward the center of the park are full hookup.

This was our third time camping at Casini Ranch and our first official time taking the RV on a trip as a family. We even brought my parents along. The first two times at Casini were tent camping trips. The tent sites are pretty spacious and provide a lot of privacy between sites. There are plenty of trees that provide a lot of shade, too.

So much fun.

And let's not forget this awesome guy who's responsible for getting us all to safety! This calls for an official celebratory Filipino BBQ skewer! This meal is seriously a MUST for ALL of our camping trips!

So tell us: Have you been to Casini Ranch? What did you think? Let us know! And what do you think of this new series on our blog! Let us know what you want to hear about!

Til next time...
