Camping World RV Dump Station

"Easy Dump Station on I-10"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
The dump station is in the parking lot at the far left of the RV parking spaces in front of the store. It has a rinse water hose, but I didn't see any potable water (didn't ask.) Easy on/off I-10 (Google Maps is wrong.) Go underneath the overpass, and take the first right on the frontage road; it dead ends at Camping World. If you are a Good...

"Avoid this one"

I came here (September 2021) to stay overnight and to see the Navajo Shadehouse Museum next door. Overall the parking lot itself was fine, mostly level, all gravel and out of the way of customers. Trucks came and went the entire time I was there. The reason I gave it such a bad ratings is because when twilight hit there were about a...

"Just Call Manager"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
You are free to camp here even though the signs say no overnight parking. Just call the store and speak to the manager. They just ask for you to stay out of the way on either side of the parking lot and be gone in the morning. Nice area! Nice manager! Parked along side a cute little lake.

Brookings RV Park

"Nice people (staff and residents), quiet"

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
I stayed 2 nights (June 2021) and got a "pull-through" that was actually 2 spots, I just drove over the center grass part under the owners instructions. The space was tight (see the photo) on the passenger's side and I could barely set out my mat without encroaching on my neighbor. No table or fire ring. Most people here are full-time...

"Bad shower experience"

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
The park appears to be better than the previous reviews. I walked our dog through at least the first half of the park and all of the roads were paved and all of the rvs/trailers that I saw were newer and nice looking. The sites are large with grass and trees. Everything was clean and kept up. The park was quiet and the woman in the office was...
