Elks Lodges


Apache Junction – Dry camp only but an amazing view of Superstition Mtns.


Woodbridge –   Lodi, CA area.  Very nice camping area.  30 amps and water.  They ask you to please drain your grey water onto the lawn!  Beautiful lawn area that the sites overlook with lots of shade trees.  The town of Woodbridge is right there with several restaurants.  The Lodi lake and nature area are less than a mile walk away with lots of trails.

Santa Clara –  Much quieter than SJ.  9 dirt sites,  Camp host very nice.  Water and Electric with a really long hose to use to dump grey water.  If you pull forward you can dump your black water.  They say only 2 weeks but not enforced unless someone is waiting in the parking area to come in!  Lodge is small and the food isn’t really great.

San Jose – Water & electric.  Close to everything.  Lodge is friendly and they have a swimming pool.

Eureka – Water & electric.  Easy to get into

Simi Valley – Beautiful, small sites, FHU and only a couple sites.  Great Burget night and breakfast on the weekend.

Indio –  Crowded but good location on 10.


Grand Junction



Ft. Walton – Right across from a very nice beach.  The sites are in the parking lot, backed up to the highway so it is very noisy.  There is a small county park right next to the lodge on the bay side and a walk over to cross the highway to get to a very nice, long beach!  Loved this place for the beach.  The camping site was awefull.  We had water and electric.  We did not go into the lodge.

Ft. Meyers – Not much of a camping spot.  They had one spot in the grass right next to the pavilion.  Quiet area off the main road about 1/2 mile.  Dinner was very nice.

Nokomis – 2 sites right next to the building in the parking lot but off to the side.  Water and Electric.   Very quiet area, very close to the freeway.

St. Augustine –  Nice sites, close together in a dirt area.  They were full every night.  About 1 mile from the beach and from the town.  Perfect site for visiting the area.


Slidell –  Very nice location, quiet with water and electric right on a small pond.  Lots of place for Duke to play fetch.  The lodge is not very active so we didn’t even go inside.  There is a caretaker that lives in a mobile home right on property.


Billings – No sites,  we stayed just in their parking lot.  Very quiet area,  Lodge was not open

New York

Henrieta – Very friendly lodge, big slope to try to level.  Quiet,  water and electric.  The bar is really friendly.

New Mexico

Albuquerque –  Very nice location.  Water and Electric.  Quiet.  Just in a paved lot.  We didn’t go in the lodge and nothing was going on

Ruidoso – Good cheap place to stay in the area.  Not really RV parking but it was ok.  Dry camp only and we were the only ones.

Carlsbad – Very nice.  2 sites only water & electric.  Beautiful Lodge but it was closed when we were there and we were the only ones so kind of remote


Bend – Very quiet, Water & Electric

Medford –  Looks good but very remote.  We didn’t end up staying.  It isn’t at the lodge but would be cool for a group

Portland –  Actually in Sherwood.  Small, mostly permanent/Seasonal but great location.  Really quiet and near farmlands and the city


Erie –  Water, Electricity.  Right near Presque Isle.  Very nice lodge.  The bar is beautiful.

South Dakota

Rapid City –  Really nice RV area with a picnic table at each site,  dirt.  full hook ups.  A golf course right there for the the lodge.


San Antonio  –  Right off the 1604 northwest of downtown.  Only 2 designated spots on pavement.  They have lots of gravel for dry camping.  Water and 50amps is available as well as a really long hose for grey water.  The sewer spot is in the drycamp gravel area and is just a sewer but it works.  Pretty quiet even though I can see the freeway.  Great location for day trips.


Vancouver – Nice park.  Right on the freeway so kind of noisy.  Stayed here again in July 2015 – Still noisy, good place for walking in neighborhoods and Trader Joes only 1/4 mile away!  Friday night they served a perfect prime rib for $15!  Along with great music and dancing in the bar.

Yakima  –  July 2015.  A beautiful RV area.  Lots of grass and shade trees on a very nice 18 hole golf course.  A good walking path within 1/2 mile.  They require you to wear a collared shirt anywhere in the lodge.
