Boise, Bend recommendations

We will be in Boise tomorrow and are heading into Oregon. I am thinking of staying a few days in/around Boise before heading to Bend, then on to Junction City for a service appointment after July 4.

I've read the available RV Park reviews for stuff in Boise and in Bend but would appreciate recommendations for folks who have been in these areas.

We stayed in Caldwell (20 miles from Boise) at Ambassador | Grapevine 7 A very nice park with long pull thrus.

The only place we have stayed in Bend is the Crown Villa, pricy but beautiful.

My son goes to boise state university we go several times a year to football games (bronco nation!!!)mountain view is about as good as boise gets close to interstate easy on and off BUT there is highway noise good $ great staff just some noise (you can't have it all). For a large town boise is great! Take time to go to the Oregon trail info center (east of town at kuna exit)

X2. We have stayed in Caldwell at Ambassador RV. It's a top-notch park. Everything is spotless. There's a clubhouse, pool, spa, library, grass at the sites, long pull-throughs, individual spotless bathrooms. Highly recommended.

X3 on Ambassador and Bend/Sisters Garden RV is just west of Bend and maybe the most beautiful campground we have ever stayed at.

X2 on Bend/Sisters Garden (Bend/Sisters Garden RV Resort | Bend, OR). We stayed there for just less than a week and enjoyed it very much. I don't remember exactly which site we had (somewhere between 79 - 84) head in, overlooking the lake. Very quiet and pretty.

Take care,
