This is a park operated by Tacoma Power, so it's not exactly like the Washington State Parks. Price does not include $8 "reservation fee" extracted for the Online Reservation service. (But the $8 can cover multiple reservations made at the same time.) Our site was asphalt paved and was an easy back-in. While there was a downhill portion at the entry, the pad leveled out nicely once we where parked conveniently positioned for the utilities connections. We selected a site that was a short walk from the clean restroom/shower. Shower required 50 cents (in quarters) for 4 minutes. Additional 2 minutes for each additional quarter, if you put them in before the timer stops. The campsite was pleasant, and we had reasonable shade (on a hot day). (Some sites are less shady.) The park is adjacent to a reservoir that allows power boats. Our weekday, early season visit was very quiet -- but it is pretty clear that at peak times boat motor noise could be considerable. Site was shorter (length is listed in online descriptions) but quite reasonable for my Sprinter Class B (Van-type) RV. (Note: I do not tow a vehicle.) I would stay here again.

Price does not include online "$8 reservation fee." I have stayed in many WA State Parks, and this one is similar to most of the others. Rasar SP is heavily wooded, so the sites offer more privacy than some other State Parks. The W&E site was easy to get into and was reasonably level. We selected a site in easy walking distance to the restroom/shower building. The showers were attractive and clean and even had an adjustable shower head. Sadly someone had partially clogged the drain, so it slowly filled with water during the shower (50 cents (quarters) for 3 minutes). I had to step into the ADA shower to dry off and get dressed to keep my feet out of the flood. But by the time I left, the water had receded. I was unable to find anyone to report the problem to... (due to the nature of the slow fill and eventual draining, it was likely not immediately obvious to the service staff). Otherwise, this was an attractive and very pleasant Washington State park.

This park is quite close to the center of town with it's "old west" ambiance. Operations are a little casual, we reserved ahead, but had not been assigned a space, though a perfectly satisfactory space was assigned upon arrival. The big disappointment was that showers were $2.00 for 4 minutes --- and special $1 tokens are required to operate the timer. The explanation (for the charge) was that the facilities are open 24/7 and it's the only way to control for "outsiders" using them. (Towels were provided for the showers.) I did not realize that tokens were required, until I discovered that my pocket full of quarters didn't work. Of course, the token machine required paper money -- and that was back in the RV. (I used the tiny wet bath shower in our Van-type class B RV-- and discovered that the Truma tankless water heater I installed this spring worked like a charm.) Were it not for the shower situation I'd have rated this park higher. It was pleasant and had attractive lush lawns. Next time I'm in the area, I'll probably stay at the State Park a few miles out of town.

This RV park exceeded my expectations. I'm always a little leery when "& Trailer Park" is in the mix... but the permanent/long term residents were around the perimeter of the property and their sites were very clean and tidy. The main camp sites are in the center of the property, and can be treated as pull-through or back-in, depending on how busy the campground might be. Big rigs should have no trouble as the sites are fairly long. Management was very pleasant and helpful, providing many tips about things to see in the area, and in helping us into our site (which was quite easy). Shower/rest rooms had been refurbished in the past couple of years. The "home made" stalls were a tad small, but the shower was first rate. (Bathrooms had a bath-rug by the sinks.) It appeared that the bathrooms had been freshly painted for the season. Gravel roadways and sites, with lawn in between. It was hard to get a sense of the site size, since we were the only RV in the part in this pre-season time. (It rained the whole 2 days of our stay.) The ambience was quite nice. We would definitely stay here again.

This RV park appears to be less than 1 year old. The facilities are well designed and in excellent condition. Oddly, we did not feel particularly welcome. It seems as if the owners/management does not realize that they are in the "hospitality" business. We had an advance reservation for 1 night. Upon arrival, the desk clerk presented me with 3 pages of contract with fine print that required multiple signatures and multiple initializations. This was extremely off-putting and annoying since I did not have time to carefully read the contract. (Note: I've had experience as an apartment house manager -- but even those rental agreements were not as crazy as this one.) The site we were assigned was (as requested) reasonably close to the shower rooms. (We travel in a Class B van camper so showers are important to us.) A positive was that the shower rooms were actually individual bathrooms with commode, counter/sink, and a 30 x 60 inch shower with curtain. The "design" of the room was "prison chic" stainless counter/sink, fixed shower head with zero adjustments, concrete floor, and subway tile walls (floor to ceiling). The ambience was simply unattractive, though everything was clean. The swirl-brush concrete floor was slip-resistant, but over time, I expect it would prove difficult to sanitize. The roads were asphalt with concrete pads at the sites. I probably would stay here again, but I wouldn't feel good about it. (This park could be a "10" if management treated patrons as reasonable humans.)

This is an older KOA with gravel roads and sites. Rain kept the dust down during our visit, but in dry weather would expect it to be a bit dusty. The restroom/shower building appears to have been renovated in the last couple of years, and was clean and attractive. (We travel in a class B (van) type RV so showers are important to us.) The site was reasonably sized, with grassy area and a table. Since our van is only 23', we were assigned a W&E site along the perimeter. WiFi was adequate, cell reception good. Sites were "siamese" and neighbor parked the "wrong way" (they backed in when they should have gone nose in). This was a little weird with them getting in and out of their rig right by our hookups. Rain kept most folks inside, in any event. We would stay here again.

Located a few miles west of Wenatchee on US-97, the setting is a beautiful grass and tree filled park. Upon arrival, the staff was helpful and got us checked in with little effort. The site was asphalt paved and level. Trees provided some shade (depends on the site). As requested, we were located just a short distance from the showers/restroom. Road noise is a problem at the park, as it "fronts" on US 97, which is a 4 lane divided road with heavy traffic, though we weren't too bothered by road noise, since the weather required use of our AC that drowned out the road noise. This was a lovely park and I'll likely use it again. Showers did require feeding in some quarters, but that's common in WA State parks, so it came as no surprise in a County park.

The campsites are spread across a hillside, so there are retaining walls, etc. Each site is paved (pavers) or gravel with a patch of grass and some little trees that separate each site. (The online photos are a few years old -- the separator trees are all 8 to 10 feet tall now.) The park is attractive, well maintained, with a pleasant staff. It is located well off the main road. My one real complaint is that the person who checked me in did not warn me that the showers required putting (Canadian!!) quarters into a meter to get water. This lack of warning is particularly annoying as we discussed locating our campsite near the showers and I even commented that the shower in our tiny van-camper was not very satisfactory. Folks, this is a border town and we were spending our last night in Canada. I had gotten rid of almost all the Canadian coins I'd had. (Only 2 dimes left.) It was a shock to discover that an additional payment was required - downgrade from "good" to "average" for this. (Such fees/meters are common in areas with tight water supplies and otherwise don't bother me.)

This is a quirky little RV park. The owners have spent 20 years working on it ... and there is much left to accomplish. But it still was a pleasant night after our visits to Jasper and Banff. The restrooms were clean and the showers were the best we encountered on our trip (7 campgrounds visited). There was just a bit of road noise, but the highway traffic really drops off after dark. The RV park is actually about 18 miles west of the Town of Revelstoke. Site was grass-covered and reasonably level. We were well satisfied with our stay here.

Additional "daily use" fee required (pricing depends on several circumstances). The fee ran about $10 per day (US$) for two seniors. This awkwardly named campground is actually a very efficient set up for RV campers. Sites are level, with gravel. All sites are connected with nicely paved roads. Rigs of all sizes should be able to use this campground without difficulty. The layout does make for a less 'country' more 'city' type ambiance. We chose a site that was relatively close to a rest room/shower facility that was near spotless. Our site was sunny, but some much needed shade would have been available had we selected a "odd numbered" site, due to the general direction of the sun -- a factor I hadn't considered when making reservations online. The campground is on a ridge above the city (Banff) but trees tend to block views of the surrounding scenery.

Camping price excludes the daily park fees and online reservations (if used). Similar to U.S. National Parks, advance reservations are usually a wise precaution to get the type of accommodations you may desire. Note that the daily entry fees (on top of the nightly camping fee) (annual passes also available) came to $10 per day for the two of us. Various regular, senior, group, and family rates may apply. The park facilities were good, though the paved roads near the camp sites were rather poor. The other park roads (between camp circles) were just fine. On the basis of "value" the provided facilities were fully acceptable, but were expensive in comparison to privately owned facilities we visited elsewhere. The campgrounds, are actually in a park with considerable natural beauty. The shower building was actually at the opposite end of the park, closer to the tent-camping area. We drove to the showers after fixing breakfast before departing on our day's activities. The power-post appeared to have been recently replaced (or upgraded) but only offered 20 and 30 amp power (No 50 amp). Fire Ring can be rented from the campground with additional fee and permit.

Campground was most attractive (adjacent to a golf course) and we had a W&E only site right next to a rapidly flowing (and rather full) small river. Our spot was in full sun, but many of the other campsites where among large trees that provided nice shade. Our mid-June visit also coincided with arrival of a substantial mosquito population! (Be forewarned.) This park is about 21 miles north of Clearwater from the junction Clearwater Valley Road with the main highway. Both Google Maps and My GPS gave seriously wrong locations based on the street address (but the Lat. and Long. coordinates are correct). Note that this RV Park is just outside the gateway/border("Boundary Road") of Wells Gray Provincial Park. While this location added some travel time off our main route, it was well worth the side trip. The staff was pleasant and gave suggestions about local attractions.

This RV park is a few miles across the border from the Sumas, WA border crossing. This park was relatively easy to find and was a decent park. Facilities were older, but well maintained. The staff was friendly and gave us directions to a desirable restaurant (for breakfast the next morning). Our Sprinter-based van conversion RV had no difficulties getting in or out of the back-in space we were assigned. But there were also pull-through sites where big rigs should have little difficulties. I'd stay here again. After dark there was little road noise. Frequent trains could be heard, but the town appeared to be in a "bowl-shaped" valley, and the trains were in idle as they passed through town (in both directions). So, the trains were not particularly annoying.

This park has a thoughtful layout, with all pull-through sites. There is a reasonable (though not generous) space between sites. While it is adjacent to a US route highway, linking Twin Falls to Wells, NV, the traffic was fairly light after dark and the few trucks passing by weren’t too bothersome. The property is surrounded by farms, and there were odors of the recent harvest that were not overwhelming, but had an “off” note. The “new mowed hay” odor wasn’t so new anymore. Obviously, this will vary by season and type of crops/chemicals used. There were some trees and we welcomed the shade on our RV. But most sites were treeless. Restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. Forgot to check the WiFi signal. Verizon was strong. Between some newish highway realignments and brain-dead GPS, it was tricky to find this park (we got lost, thanks to the GPS). However, it is on the main US 93 heading south just outside the town of Filer, ID.

This smallish park is located at the southern end of the town, some distance from the central area. It adjoins a walk/bicycle trail on an old railroad right-of-way. It is compact with not a lot of space between campsites. A few trees are on the grassy bits between sites, but most are without trees. Trees are generally close to the internal roads, and should not interfere with slide-outs. The roads and sites are all paved with asphalt. The park is organized with “Siamese” services. RVs pull in alternating directions, so a set of hook-ups are shared between each pair of RVs. Two of the spaces have no services, but rent at a discount. Noise from the nearby busy road quieted down significantly after dark. From the general “feel” of the park, the surprise was the absolutely first-rate bathrooms and showers. On my visit, they were spotless! Alsom roomy with a well-thought out layout. WiFi signal was strong, but slow at times. Verizon signal was strong.
