Holiday Farms RV Resort, Rainbow OR

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy ~ Kathy Matthews

This Labor Day Weekend, we went up the McKenzie and stayed at the Holiday Farms RV Resort.  We have stayed at the Holiday Farms cabins and neighboring campgrounds several times over the past 8 years, but this was our first time in the R.V. park.  The park was built around 4 years ago, and it is very beautiful.  They left so many old trees, and have created a true park-like setting.

We were not planning on staying there this time either, but on our way to the campground, we decided to see if there was an opening.  We got the last one with full hookups, which also included cable t.v.  We were glad about that part, and were able to watch the TCU/Auburn on Friday night, and then the Oregon game on Saturday night.  Both of our teams lost, but TCU played great, at least.  The price to stay $35.00 per night, plus tax.

The office and the bathroom/shower facilities were very nice, but there is only one shower for the whole park.  I guess that people with their own R.V.'s can use their own because you are provided with water and sewer hook ups.

Our trailer is the the third one on the right.  Nobody was across the street from us, nor on our right side.  The neighbors were very polite and quiet.  Even their dogs were quiet.  Well, we did have these wild people show up with four dogs and four kids (one who was a screamer) and we cringed, but they were only using the dump station.  I was thinking, oh, my, there goes our peace and quite ... but it turns out it was only for 20 minutes or so.

We moved our picnic table behind our trailer and made it look pretty.  I like bringing flowers from home.  It makes me feel better.

As I mentioned, the grounds were absolutely gorgeous.

 Creeks and ponds were just right there for all to enjoy.

There was a park with horse shoe pits, and a place for the kids to run around.  Though, I don't remember any play structures.

If you wanted, you could reserve the fire-pit for $15.00, and have a great big bonfire in the evenings.  I guess that helps the camp to pay for the firewood.  There were no fire pits at the RV sites, but some brought their own freestanding ones and that was okay.

Amazingly, there were no mosquitoes.  I didn't ask, but I think they might spray for them.

Across the drive from the park and the big fire pit there was the Beaver Trail that will take you on a gentle hike around another huge shallow lake.  There is also a small fire-pit and viewing area.

It was so pretty!  I felt right at home.  This is my original neck of the woods ... the valley, not the high desert where we live now.

God's Country.

The faries liked it there too.

And then, if you wanted to walk to the Holiday Farms Restaurant/Bar and the cabins, they were only 1,000 feet down the driveway.  Too cool!  The first night though, we had to use our cell phone lights on the way home to be able to kind of see our way home.  I wish that there were solar lights or something along the road.

All in all, we enjoyed our visit very much, along with our "new to us" trailer from Cary's Mom.  We will certainly be back to stay in the future.

Oh my goodness I don't mind living in this trailer. One question, do we still have to pay property tax if we live in a trailer. For example, next month I like to live in a month in Illinois, then the next month Nevada...can you imagine 50 states for 4 years?? Geez I can do that makes me smile here and as long as there is an internet connection I don't mind not watching tv, as long as I have my books and food I am fine, lol!!

Hi Kim ... we are enjoying it very much. It has a slide out and that gives us lots of room. No, I don't think you would have to pay property taxes unless you own the land where the trailer is. If you are renting an RV from somebody, they'll have you pay a lodging tax and forward that on.

We don't expect to watch t.v. -- but it was a good bonus for last weekend.

Take care and thanks for writing!
