The Wildlife Safari in Winston Oregon is one of the few places you can get really up close and personal with animals and see critters from all over the world from right outside your car window! They include a zoo style walking area with many great features and interactive activities as well as a drive through experience that takes you from continent to continent showing you animals from all around the world! Our family has been going to the Wildlife Safari since we moved to Oregon! From the bear pins to the Ostriches pecking at your windows, there's never a dull moment. We've made many great memories at The Wildlife Safari, and so can you and your family! 

The Wildlife Safari  has an RV park! Their park features 15 sites and is only a 1/4 mile from the safari it's self! They also offer close encounters with Lions and bears! Oh my! The Wild Life Safari is a great, exciting and fun experience for the whole family and there's something for everyone in the Park. If You're taking your RV out for a camping adventure this is definitely a must go spot!

Camping Tip: Winter Camping in Oregon

by John Clarke on 02/12/14

Do not miss out on all the beauty that Oregon has to offer even in winter. Camping in winter can be just as fun as any other time of year. Many campgrounds are very peaceful this time of year, and offer great off season discounts. Our family's favorite spot for winter visits is on the McKenzie River. The evergreen forests are beautiful in winter, and the hiking is phenomenal. Definitely prioritize a stop at beautiful Sahalie Falls. There is a beautiful well kept trail there that leads you down to Sahalie Falls and further down to Koosah Falls. Also when you are staying on the McKenzie, snow is a short drive away. So you can have a snow day, and then come home to the warm camper. Though there are many beautiful places to stay, we would recommend camping at Belknap Hotsprings Lodge and Gardens. They have full service sites and partial service sites. Many of their RV sites back onto the river with a breathtaking view. However the best part of Belknap is the large pool of water that is from the natural hot springs on the property. The springs have a long history of providing visitors with rest and relaxation. The pool is located right next to the river. However there are many places to stay in the area, and if you chose to camp elsewhere Belknap Hotsprings Lodge offers day passes to the pool. So you can stop in and walk the beautiful gardens, they are serene even in winter (do not miss searching for the secret garden). Another great campground in the area is Holiday Farm RV Resort. It is a beautiful campground with many private wooded RV sites. There is so much to do and explore along the McKenzie river. In the Summer there is great fishing, boating, hiking, rafting.................... however don't miss out on all it has to offer in the winter months as well. Below are links to the places mentioned above and more. Simply copy the website address and paste it into your browser to view these webpages.

RV TIP: Check Your Roof Seals Before and After

by John Clarke on 03/27/13

We know many of our local RV-ers are busting out their RV's from winter hibernation. Here is a quick tip to help you along with your preventative roof maintenance. Before and after your first trip out for the sunny weather season, make sure to check all the seals on your roof, and around the whole exterior. The reason why you check after your first trip out is because, when your motor home or trailer sits all winter long then goes out for its first trip of the season, that is one of the most likely times for seals to crack and show their age. The reason is because the seal may not be as malleable as it once was, so when you drive your RV down the road, as it goes through all the bumps and shakes during the trip, the weak spots in your seals will start to show.  You will see small cracks beginning to form on your seals on your roof, and that is the sign that you simply need to coat over the cracks. Make sure to use a self-leveling caulking on your roof DO NOT USE REGULAR SILICONE CAULKING on your roof. Regular silicone caulking is not designed to withstand the stresses that an RV roof is built to go through. We recommend Dicor self-leveling silicone based caulking or another product like that. Apply your caulking cleanly and relatively generously. Do not use self-leveling caulking on the sides of the trailer, or else it will do just that, self-level and slide down the sides. Make sure you chose a dry day to do this; otherwise all your hard work will wash away. The dryer and warmer the day the better the products will set. If you would like to have your trailer resealed by a professional our mobile service department can make a house call, or you can bring it in, and we will take care of it in our shop which provides cover from the elements. Give our service department a call if you have any questions about how to seal your RV properly, or if you require seasonal maintenance. Our service number is 541-895-4321.
