Terrific place. Not able to add much to the other reviews except to say that this is a really good campground for those who want to get away from an RV Park. There are so many really good sites both with and w/out electricity. It's no wonder that this place sells out early during the vacation season. If you are a senior and have the Golden Age Pass you will pay $15 per night for an elec site and $8 for non-electric. Without the pass the prices are $22 and $16 respectively. The camp hosts were what we would hope that all camp hosts should be like: friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. 5 stars for them. One other kudo. This campground and several others nearby are run by the Hobgen District of the Custer Gallatin Natl Forest. This group is managed by a person, who prior to my trip, helped me a lot by both phone and email. Great, helpful service. Google the district for the email info should you need some advance info. Will definitely stay here again.

What a terrific state park. Beautiful sites with utilities and some with views of the Snake River. Awesome. We stayed at site 42 and while there are many sites to suit the needs/wants of campers, I liked this one because of the views and that the site needed very little levelling. Beautiful sunrises. We will be coming back through this way in 12-14 days and will stay at this or any other site. One other thing. The camp host is very diligent in making the rounds. Does her job well. I give this only a 7 rating because it has only 30 amp connection instead of 50amp and it has no sewer connection at the site. But what the heck, it's a campground not an RV park.

This is a very classy RV Park with really nice sites in a nice environment. Easy in and out for all pull throughs and though some really long 5th wheels might have difficulty in a few back in sites most sites are right for just about everybody. They do have a 72-hour cancellation policy but if you don't cancel and only delay your arrival, there is no fee. That's reasonable for a 5-star rv park. There is a train some distance away but, heck, that's to be expected in rural areas. No big deal. We were only here one night but were happy we stayed here. I give it a high rating and would definitely return here.

Nice RV park with reasonable spacing between sites and grass in between. In my view this may possibly be the best RV Park in the Reno/Sparks area unless you are looking for full scale casinos which Gold Ranch doesn't offer. It is clean and attractive and secure at a reasonable price. We had a pull through that was plenty long for our motor home and toad without needing to disconnect. Only suggestion that I have for this park (and others) is that the hookups be better placed for motor homes and not cater to only the 5th wheelers. The butt of my toad was practically off of the pad so that my electric cord could reach the post in the center-rear. This also put my sewer, water & elec cabin even with my neighbor's door. In other words, a more forward post would be better (and no, I am not buying a 50amp extension cord to fix this.) Despite this I am still giving this place a 9 and it is great for a night or two and a stopover.

I have been visited this park 5 times in about 8 years. With new management it has never l0oked better. The owner/manager (Paula) is a delight to do business with. The park is set in an olive grove and the trees are trimmed to allow plenty of room for slide outs. The shade provided by the olive trees is welcomed in the hot summer months.The pull throughs are long and level. No problem with water pressure and we had 50amp service. I stayed here 3 weeks ago on the way north on I-5 and am now here again on the way south. I will stay here again, for sure.

I have been to 35 National Park campgrounds and this ranks in the bottom half. While the sites are "woodsy" and spacious most are not level and slideouts barely make it. There is no electric and water at the sites. Worse yet, there are no showers in an area where water is not a problem. I will not return here.

This is the best RV Park in Vancouver. While it is mostly permanents, the residents have nice rigs and their individual sites are well kept. The park is spotless and is easy in and out with whatever size you have. It is a fine RV park for visiting Vancouver and Portland. It is within a quarter mile of both I-5 and I-205. They don't offer many sites for overnighters like me who stayed here for 3 nights so next time I will make reservations well ahead of time to be assured a site. I will return.

The sites are a little closer than I would prefer and leveling is a must in most of them. However, there are so few campgrounds in the National Park system that provides full hookups, it was nice to have them here. AT&t cell service is poor to non-existent but the proximity to the various canyon overlooks is easy by either the shuttle, your toad or your pickup. I would stay here again.

This is my third stay at this RV Park. The owners really know what they are doing and manage it well. It has nice level sites, good spacing, security, great utilities and friendly and welcoming owner/managers. Whether headed East or West on I-40 I would drive an extra hour to stay here again.

Very disappointing park given its name and the golf resort. The sites are plenty big enough for rigs of all sizes, but it seems that maintenance is way behind schedule. The weeds are abundant and the cobwebs suggest that not too many folks stay here. The 9-hole golf course has not had any irrigation for a long time and it is not playable. The I-5 is visible but not a significant noise problem. The location of this park closer to Sacramento than Redding and south of Corning should make it desireable for many heading south from Oregon, or from SoCal folks going north who made it through Sac and need a resting place. However, new management, money and/or some promoting of this park may be needed to make it work in the long run. I hope that this place gets turned around. I want to return.

This National Park has so many sites that there's bound to be something for everyone. I was told that reservations are a must for the best 50% of the sites and they fill up fast. About 25% are not so good, either being really unlevel or not enough vegetation buffer between the sites. I saw quite a few 32 to 38 foot motor homes in the sites so most rigs will fit. Agree with previous poster about signage. I missed the sign and travelled 15 miles up hwy 10 before I could unhook and turn around. The problem is the sign to the campground is so busy with other things that a newbie to this park can easily miss the turn. Nice little town to stroll around, stop in the visitor center and or have an ice cream. The biggest improvement I think is needed, is another dump station. The lines were quite long on Sunday morning with people checking out. Also, I think quiet hours should be after 10pm, not 11 pm. It was quite noisy from 9-11pm on Friday and Saturday nights and nobody doing anything about it. Even so, this is another of Canada's nice national parks.

The check in procedure was uncomfortable for due to the unfriendliness of the staff. The Wi-Fi was awful despite the assurances to the contrary. Next door is a theme Park with lots of loud speaker noise and music that travels into the RV Park. The sites have reasonable spacing and the utilities work well. However, I didn't experience enough positives here to warrant a return visit.

No problems to report about this RV Park, except it was too pricey for what we received. The site was fine, the power was consistent and the water pressure good. I agree mostly with the comments below. Would consider an alternative RV park or campground next time due to price/value.

Pleasant park with caring owners. Flowers are everywhere making it very pleasant. The few big rig pull throughs aren't as nice as the other sites, as they are close together. I will stay here again but will unhook and back into a better site.

Very nice National Park on Lake Superior. The campsites are spaced well and are mostly woodsy with good privacy. Wi-Fi is available at the visitor center. Really helpful ranger/warden with lots of good ideas, suggestions and answers. There are trails to walk and explore including a boardwalk on the way to the cove. Both of my GPS units failed to get me on the right road here so for routing purposes take hwy 627 south from Hwy 17 near Marathon and it will lead you to the park. No store, so bring provisions. I would return here.
