Extended stay @ 7 Feathers RV Resort - Southern Oregon

Parked to sign in to 7 Feathers RV Resort and Casino
We arrived yesterday at about 4:00 pm following a day of very heavy rains through Vancouver, Wa., Portland, Oregon, and on through Salem, Oregon.  Finally the rains abated somewhat and the last two hours of driving were fairly good.
Heavy rains......Yuk!
Much improved driving conditions.
If this isn't a 5 start resort, what is?
See the golf cart?  Each RV gets directed to their site.  Great service.
The guide leads you into your site.

Now to unhitch and get set up.
This has got to be one of the best RV resorts we have been too.  Owned and operated by the southern Oregon first nations, this is a great example of how these entrepreneurial bands can actually create a wonderful business.  

This native band that built and operate the RV resort, truck stop, casino and hotel.

Beautiful creek that runs parallel to the resort.
Following our set up, Jeanette and I took the shuttle service to the Casino for dinner and some free gambling.  As a registered guest in the RV resort, each person get a free play card for $7.50.  We're not gamblers (in casinos that is - but in business, YES!) but after a nice dinner, Jeanette hit a jackpot - well, a small jackpot - and she wanted to cash out and buy us each a glass or wine while we enjoyed a fantastic 60's music performance by a very gifted singer and his band, Hal Bruce. 

When we returned to our RV the thought occurred that it might not be such a bad idea to hang in for an extra day/night, get ourselves better organized and have a breather from a really hectic couple weeks prior to our snow birding adventure.  When we woke up this morning, the decision was quickly made to stay
Following an early morning walk, I chose to remove the motorcycle from the swivel wheel and re tie it better.  Although the previous tie downs worked well, I found a better method.  I then chose to err on the side of caution and check all tire pressures.  Never can be too safe. 
Jeanette enjoys her morning coffee and I get to work on the swivel wheel and motorcycle. We ended our day with a swim, jacuzzi soak, shower, another long walk and now we're preparing for our drive over the southern Oregon and northern California passes.  


  1. I love it when you are escorted to your site. I don't know why more campgrounds don't that. It's a lovely touch and it's not a huge effort. Makes a huge difference after driving all day to have someone direct you to your site instead of trying to figure out one of those stupid maps.

  2. glad you landed safely!..hope the weather improves soon!!

  3. Glad you decided to take an extra day for rest and relaxation - it makes a huge difference.

    Seven Feathers is the nicest RV Resort we've ever stayed at and we look forward to returning to it each year.

    Good luck with your drive over the Siskiyou tomorrow - if the weather's good, it's a very nice and easy drive.

  4. Good idea to retie & check, I am really impressed with that park,we hope someday to visit that end of our country. Won't be long and you will be into warmer climes. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna...
