This could be a nice park. It isn't. There are lovely palm trees and mature cactus gardens and the location is convenient. Unfortunately, there seems to be an overall lack of care, possibly due to the absentee owner [he lives in Canada]. My first observation was of people checking in at the office. The office staff was shockingly rude to everyone, treating paying guests as problems to be dealt with. She actually asked one woman, 'Well, what do YOU want?!' I did not use the restrooms but did use the laundry. Out of eight dryers, five were 'out of order'. I was told by residents that this has been the case for 'a long time'. I spoke to the owner by telephone because, if it were MY business, I'd want to know how it was being run. The owner spoke as if he was concerned about the park but I had the impression he didn't really care about the rude staff or the general lack of maintenance. The residents are very nice people and they deserve much better.

This is not a 'resort' so I found it perfect for an overnight stay. Great value, convenient location east of Yuma. Cash or checks only. Good cable TV, nice staff. Would definitely return.

Date of Stay:

Very attractive, clean and well-managed park, largely occupied by seasonal residents. Laundry room large and spotlessly clean, all front-loader washers. They use a card rather than quarters so you might have $ left on your card when you leave, as I did. The CATV was good. They have TengoInternet WiFi, which I didn't use. There is an electronic entry gate for which you are issued a card. If you have a pet, it must be walked in the pet area, a separate fenced area which you access with a key. There is a fair amount of noise here, as it is in a high traffic area but it's a very nice park with plenty of amenities.

Date of Stay:

Stayed both here and at Cholla. Cholla is prettier and the sites better maintained but both are great values. Good 4G Verizon in both. Sites well spaced and the campground was quiet even on the weekend. Plenty of showers and they were very clean and well designed.

Date of Stay:

I can't think of any reason not to give this campground a'10'. It's beautifully scenic, very quiet (at least during the week when I was there), roads and sites are paved, each roomy site with a ramada-roofed metal picnic table and fire ring. Many, if not most, sites overlook the lake. There is a well-maintained gravel walking trail around the campground. If there was anything negative about it, it was the awkward way one has to purchase daily passes (one for each day and cannot be purchased onsite). Would definitely return here again and again.

Date of Stay:

Part of the access road is unpaved. Sites are laid out in a circle with parallel parking; therefore, there was little privacy or shade. Very little Verizon signal [text only]. The high point was the paved trail along the Rim, with breathtaking vistas. Would visit this campground again.

Date of Stay:

This is essentially a permanent resident park. Because the managers are very seldom in the office, the rules handed out at registration are not enforced. The sites are OK, the WiFi is mostly usable and the CATV excellent. I used the laundry [three washers, three dryers] but not the restrooms. The PA discount was not as advertised.

Date of Stay:

Really an amazingly pleasant place to camp with sites right on the lake. And it's free! The only negative is the traffic noise from Hwy 93. The previous review has it right. Great birding, great scenery. I'm going back this coming week. There are only 12 sites and only a few are for RVs so arrive early.

Date of Stay:

Very scenic campground. Sites are roomy pull-throughs. Will definitely return.

Date of Stay:

Well-organized and beautifully maintained park. Sites are a bit close but are shaded and level concrete with grass in between. Wi-Fi worked most of the time and the cable TV was excellent. Laundry small but clean. They even have a dog washing facility! Would definitely return if in the area.

This is a beautiful NFS campground in the mountains. Sites are large and well spaced with good views. Access road, interior roads and camp sites are all paved. The access road was fairly steep but in excellent condition. Was able to get some Verizon signal for voice/text but not data. Will definitely come here again.

Date of Stay:

Nice park with good free Wifi, Verizon signal and quite a few OTA HD TV channels. Small dogs only [25 lbs or less]. Have stayed here several times en route and probably will again.

Date of Stay:

This is the second year I have spent Labor Day weekend here because it seems never to be busy. There is a LOT of traffic noise but is otherwise an OK NFS campground with level sites and a nature trail [loop C]. Big rigs can find very long pull-though sites in loop A.

Date of Stay:

This is a well-maintained but very tight little campground. The sites are quite close together and not level. My comments about the Craters Monument area follow.

Date of Stay:

This is a beautiful little park with private, shady sites in the Colville National Forest two miles from Newport on the Pend Oreille River. A pleasant trail and boardwalk is nice for viewing the river and learning about the native heritage and local flora and fauna. This was my second stay here and it won't be my last. Verizon signal was good.
