Premier RV Resort of Salem, OR is one of a chain of resorts falling under the “Premier RV Resort” moniker. These RV resorts seemingly offer nicer looking grounds, though from our perspective what makes these parks nicer looking is that they’ve priced the rates higher to attract wealthier campers.
Otherwise, this RV Resort still offers the same amenities as most other resorts, swimming pool, spa, dog park, gym, laundry facilities. The resort’s Wi-Fi was just as spotty as most other RV resorts and parks, while Verizon’s cell signal came in pretty good.
These spaces are tiny!
Each RV space seemed quite narrow, considering the higher price you’re paying. The pull through spaces are short, just enough to get your trailer into, and just barely your pickup truck too. In fat, I was busted one night because my truck was a foot too far into the roadway. One of our neighbors had a slide out that was only a couple feet from touching our awning. On our other side, we had a neighbor with a class A motorhome and four kids, and they were stomping all over our sewer hose. We had to buy a new hose. They would yell and scream all day, and almost into the night.
This park is filled with long termers, and permanent residents. It’s common to see bicycles laying on their sides in front of RVs.
But despite all the kids, and the higher space fees, it’s still largely a restful place to stay. Premier RV Resorts doesn’t seem to have any problem booking up all the spaces in their facility.
One nice amenity that Premier RV Resort offered is a free copy of USA Today at my trailer door step each morning.
While Sash and I won’t stay here again, mostly due to the high price and tiny spaces, obviously there is a demand for RV resorts that can price out the riff-raff. You won’t exactly get a quieter RV resort as a result, you’ll just get one where the guests have Camping World chairs and Big Green Eggs instead of Wal-Mart chairs and Smokey Joe’s.
