2018 UPDATE - There were so many open sites this year and we actually stayed in the same area all by our lonesomes, just like we like it. The weather was so nice in the evenings but they were doing some construction and the trains were louder than we remembered them from before that it was difficult to sleep with the windows opened so we opted for the fan noise.

All of the sites are back in with water, electric and sewer on fairly level gravel. We chose our site mainly so not to disturb others because we would be taking our rig back and forth to work every day. It ended up being a perfect choice, we were not squished in like the rest of the sites because we did not have neighbors except for two nights during some sort of a rally they had going on.

The resort is well maintained and manicured, the staff was wonderful and there were lots of activities that we did not partake in since it was a work trip for us. But the area was peaceful and we enjoyed several nights out on our patio with our fire.

It is an Encore resort which is included in our Thousand Trails membership with an additional Max Pass included in our package. If we are ever in the area again, we would choose this place again.

It’s hard to rate this one since we only were there a few moments. We had a reservation at Harrah’s AK Chin at the hotel but read about all the construction and how they no longer allow parking for RV’s so we opted to find a place to basically store Maggie and then drive May to the hotel.

She let us check in before noon and we paid $30 for the night for a pull through site on gravel that was fairly level. We only plugged into the power so we have no idea about the amenities but it seemed like a nice place that we would return to if we are ever in the area again, but it is in the middle of nowhere so we probably wouldn’t come this far out again.

Come to find out, we could have stayed either in Maggie at the hotel or parked her even with all the construction. We are going to try to stay in hotels at least once a month just so we can stretch out and enjoy so this was our hotel stay for January with many more to come. It was a nice room with all the conveniences like long, hot showers, stretching in bed and not having to crawl over each other to get out especially in the middle of the night. Oh, and did we mention...FREE...our free nights from our hotel stays during our BOA Adventure. Life is pretty terrific and we look forward to a great year with new and exciting adventures.
