Day 2 - Canyonville, OR at 7 Feathers RV Resort

Yesterday was an easy drive from Salem to Canyonville.  I planned it that way to have time to explore this lovely resort.  I understand the owners interviewed RVers to see what they wanted in a resort.  This park is off the freeway, about 1/4 - 1/2 mile and is very, very quiet.  We had a warm and friendly welcome, and there is a valet that drives you to your site, and guides you in. 

The sites are large, with grassy areas in between, and nice picnic tables.  We arrived about noon yesterday and it was warm enough to eat outside in the sunshine (I'd guess in the upper 60s).   Our spot, #61, was great.

We walked the perimeter of the park. Lots of nice trees and a walkway along the creek.  Watch out for poison oak, though.

There was one area behind the fitness center that had a strong sewer smell. Could have been that someone just dumped their tank, but I read a similar complaint on rvparkreviews.com early.

One thing I have to mention is the restrooms and showers.  They were individualized - meaning each restroom was a private room with a shower and lockable door.  Very nice.  Large laundry with tables for folding clothes.  $1.25 to wash, $1 to dry.  We swam in the indoor pool and enjoyed the hot tub.  Next time we come back, we will try out the fitness room which included treadmills, stairsteppers, a recumbant bicycle, universal gym and other equipment I couldn't identify.  There was a TV to watch while exercising as well.  There is a gift shop in the office, and a meeting area in the clubhouse.

We took the shuttle over to the 7 Feathers Casino for dinner and a little game time.  There was a fairly good sized non-smoking gaming area (behind glass doors) but no live gaming tables.  We played a little video keno for a bit.  Contributed $5 over the 2 hours we played.  If you visit, you are welcome to retrieve it and enjoy.  We enjoyed an $8 dinner special of rib eye steaks, baked potatoes and fresh mixed vegetables.  You could order a side salad for 99 cents, which we did.  Be sure to ask about the specials.  The waitresses don't always share that information.  (That tip came from the shuttle driver!) The live keno game moved very slowly.  I guess I should be thankful because our numbers were not coming up anyway.  Only got 2 games in over dinner.

The parking valet called the shuttle for us, and it arrived quickly.  He took us right to our rig.   We took a few moments to really enjoy the brilliant and beautiful full moon and a sky full of twinkling stars before hitting the rack.  Slept like a log!

We didn't set up the Direct TV dish, and can't comment on the cable TV because we are having cable issues on our end.  The resort does offer a good variety of channels and free wifi.  I used my Verizon wireless card and had good reception.

We used the Good Sam discount plus the Players Club discount from the casino, and our overnight came to $32.  We will definitely stay here again.

Thanks to Kim's Aunt Maria for telling us about the resort.

Next stop, Red Bluff, California.
