This camprground is a great base for exploring Seattle. Check-in was quick and friendly, with an escort to the site. I had no problems with our 42' big rig, and had plenty of room for the slide outs. Part of the park has shade trees, but we chose a site without to ensure our satellite worked. It's a pet friendly park with a pet walk area. As other have stated, it's all about location; this is the place to be if you want a quick commute to the sites to see in Seattle. We will stay here on our next visit.

The park was adequate for an overnight. We stopped here to get a circuit board to protect our refrigerator from fires. The mfg of the ARPRV.com board is in Butte. The park had a good WiFi signal, and their code was accepted without issue, but that was it, I don't think they even had the WIFI connected to the internet. I was never able to get any web pages up. Water pressure was ok, but not great. The roads were gravel as well as the sites with nice grass in between. I think the park recently changed hands, and you could see improvements in progress. It's in a great location with the visitors center next door, and a paved city walking/biking path along a river on the back side. Good grassy areas for the dogs. An on-site take-out food place was an added bonus. We would stay here next time we visit Butte, if they get that WiFi working right.

This park is in a great location to visit downtown SLC. There is a gate out the back to a park path along the river that leads to several other parks as well as an off-leash dog park. They have a two car/rv wash's one with 13.5' bays for big rvs. The laundry was big and worked well. It was very clean too, the staff were doing a great job at keeping everything clean, event the washers and dryers. The WiFi worked well 90% of the time, which is more than I can say for most parks we have visited on this trip. The trolly stops just up the street, so you could make it without a toad. We would stay here next time we visit Salt Lake City.

This park is 10 miles from Old Town situated on the Swanee River. They have a mix of sites with live oaks all over. The roads are hard packed sand as are the sites. We arrived early afternoon to visit Manatee Springs State Park across the river. The campground rents pontoon boats in case you don't want to drive all the way around to the state park via Old Town. We rented a pontoon, headed up river to the park, docked at the state park and swam in the 72 degree springs. The cable tv was decent with about 20 channels, the hosts were friendly, and didn't hear about any of the rules the previous reviewer mentioned. I also didn't see but a few cabins, so I'm not sure what the reviewer was referring to about all the park models and long-term residents. Very nice showers and restrooms, all tile. The laundry was big and airy I think there were about 7 each of washers and dryers. A nice park, that served its purpose for us. A nice stop on the way home from Orlando. We would definitely come back!

This is a great place to stay when you are in the area. Easy access from the 101. This is a well kept mature park with lots of trees and grass. Nice people running the place. Nice laundry. Camping area had what looked like a place to do dishes, etc. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice enough place to stay in the Healdsburg area. There are water and 50 amp hook ups but no sewer. They do have a dump station. The people running the place are a bit disorganized at times. They do allow tent camping, sleeping in the car and whatever in a separate area. The park is located right next to the river, and you can climb down to it. Spaces are large and have nice grass area for your chairs, etc. This is right in the heart of the wine area, and there is plenty of places for wine tasting. Healdsburg is a very nice small town with a number of great restaurants. Gets crowded on the weekend. Would stay here again for 2-3 days.

This is a very nice place to stay when traveling on the 101 Hwy. It is located just outside Morgan Hill which is a pleasant little town to visit. The park is newer, and the facilities are quite nice. Trees are not very old, so they are small. Pay close attention to the directions on the web site. There is a concrete divider on the road in front, and if you exit going the wrong way it is difficult to get turned around. Very nice people working there. Will stay again when in the area.

The main reason to camp here is the location. It is about 10 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge right on the 101 Hwy (I mean right on the 101). The ferry to San Francisco is a 10 minute walk away. (Don't even think of driving to the Ferry. Commuters fill up the lot early.) There are very few RV parks in the area so your choices are quite limited. Your RV is parked cheek to jowl with the other RV's (space was 17' wide) on rock. A number of RV's appeared to rent two spaces to have some room. The place is neat and clean the the employees are friendly. This is not a resort park. It is a place to park so you can visit the area. It is noisy from the 101 traffic. I would stay there again when in the area.

This is a very nice park for the most part. The office, laundry and some other buildings appear quite new. Facing the office, the area to the right is mostly very old and mostly pretty shabby park models and very old trailers. To the left is the RV area, and it is quite nice. We had space 38 which is right on the bay. We drove in and ran the hoses under the RV so we could face out to the bay. Great view. Try to get spaces 35 to 39. Will try to stay here again if in the area. Very nice people running the park.

We have stayed in this park for about the past 5 years staying from a few days to two weeks at a time. It is one of the best in this area. We got a pull through site for about $35.00 a night which was very reasonable. Clean, concrete pads, wifi sometimes, friendly staff. We refer Rvers to this RV resort because it is well worth the price you pay. We will continue to use this RV park when in this area. Very pleased.

Date of Stay:

We got site 38 right by a dirt road and a lot of satellites,boards,brick and trash right beside us. There were 5th wheelers to the front and another side that looked like homesteaders. On top of that there were tractors with fork lift working on the side where all the trash was, so there was no way you could sleep and enjoy your vacation. They were going in and out of the dirt road, which made it very dusty. They did have other sites so why put our beautiful Phaeton in this spot? We will NOT be back here. This park was over price for what we got. Be sure to look at the site before you pay as they do not refund anything. We will find somewhere else to stay next time we visit Panama City, FL. We did not enjoy our stay here at all, after 3 days we just left.

We have stayed at this campground several times and do enjoy it because everyone is so friendly. The have a nice place to set under the pavilion and there is a huge fireplace on campgrounds that they light every night. It doesn't have concrete pads and some spot are pretty sandy. Over all its a pretty good place to stay but wished the had concrete pads and more cable channels.

Date of Stay:

The view of the lake is lovely. The sites are very tight and difficult to enter and exit. The bathrooms are very nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The cable is limited with no ESPN in NASCAR country: Wi-Fi is spotty. There is no playground, but plenty of room for dogs. For a park that bills itself as a "Resort", it was full of day workers in small, older units. Parking is very limited. We found it overpriced for the space and amenities.

Date of Stay:

We had to back down a rather steep slope to get to our site, but the site was reasonably level once we accomplished that. We were next to some cabins and it was a little loud and crowded on the weekend but nothing too terrible. They have pay showers, which is an unwelcome annoyance, all too common in some parts of the country.

Date of Stay:

Nothing terribly wrong with our one-night stay, but we felt it was overpriced and the service at check-in seemed unprofessional and unfriendly. Our campground guidebook had a nice discount coupon, but they quickly grabbed most of it back with extra charges for using a credit card, as well as a few extra dollars for tax. The bathhouse was so-so, and some of the sites were not at all level. And the nearby trains were loud and near-constant.
