Immaculate park and very well managed. Rules are enforced but nicely and this makes for a very pleasant and convenient base camp. Extensive free cable TV [with box] and excellent wifi. Nice grassy pet area. Great park for big rigs with level concrete pull-throughs. Price reflects weekly rate. Will always use this park when in the area. None better.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects weekly rate. Have stayed here several times before and it is still one of the best parks in the Pacific NW. Well managed, well maintained, great walking trail, good laundry facilities. Did not use showers/restrooms but they were probably immaculate. Cable TV was pretty good but the Wifi was unreliable. Had to use my own mobile Wifi if doing anything important, as the park Wifi would cut off suddenly. Will stay here again.

This is a diamond in the rough on the Columbia River. Sites are very private and mine [a no-hookup site] was right on the river with beach access. It was fun seeing all the huge ships go by and so very close! Some of the roads are very bumpy and the WiFi didn't work in my site but the Verizon signal was good enough to use my mobile WiFi and for voice with an antenna. Would definitely come here again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed five days. Pleasant, quite busy. The ticks were particularly bad, due to a mild winter, and my dog was covered with them. This was possibly from the trails which we walked several times a day. The sewer drains are a little touchy and can back up if you open the valve all the way. Good Verizon signal. Nice park and I will likely return.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects a coupon discount of three nights for the price of two. This is a pleasant setting and the park seems well managed. Contrary to their advertisement, they no longer have cable TV and I was unable to access their Wifi. The Verizon signal was very weak at my site and an antenna was necessary.

Date of Stay:

Very unusual park with staggered sites inserted into shady nooks with nice, woodsy views. Electric is included in the fee and Wifi is good as well as Verizon coverage. Cable TV included, also. Yes, the roads are very twisty and some fairly steep but it's worth the navigation. The office staff are volunteers and some seem a bit confused at times but all are extremely nice as are the residents. Many bird species abound and there are lovely walking trails within the huge park. I stayed a little over two weeks and would return. One caveat: Watch out for kamikaze golf carts.

Date of Stay:

This campground is a mixed bag. First of all, it's quite pretty, even in a drought. It is probably beautiful when the lake is full and the grass is green. The sites are very well spaced with views and it was amazingly quiet during the week while I was there. There are some electric sites but I chose a standard one. Now, for the negative. There is no pay box for campers and I had to ask three different rangers where I could pay my fee before someone finally came around on my second day there and took my check. He said he'd bring back a pass/receipt but never did. Also, when I left I swung by the dump station and found the drains both locked! I had counted on using the dump station so that was very inconvenient. Nevertheless, I would return here because the good points outweigh the bad.

Date of Stay:

Small, very tight park. There is a wall around it but the traffic & train noise are still a big issue. Mostly permanent residents but reasonably clean except for the laundry room which could use a good scrubbing. The pool and hot tub looked clean. OK for a night [I stayed two] and a good price with PA. Would certainly not pay the $37 regular rate.

This has always been a great park--maybe even better than it used to be. Clean-as-a-whistle facilities, pool, citrus trees at every site and very friendly staff. Great Wifi; CATV in some sites, although OTA channels are available, too. I chose a water & electric site which was an excellent value. The only fly in the ointment here is the traffic noise---highway and train. Other than that it's just about perfect.

Date of Stay:

The traffic noise is loud and constant here. This is a small, cramped park with back-in sites. The laundry 'room' [two washers, two dryers] is right in the office, literally. The owner/manager is very nice but I can't see paying $40 for a place that has really nothing to offer. Oh, there are a massage parlor, tattoo parlor and a pawn shop right across the street.

Date of Stay:

Picturesque campground in a canyon with a nice 2-mile canyon trail to enjoy. Had the place almost to myself except on the weekend when there were quite a few day-use hikers and picnickers. There are several water faucets but there was no water while I was there. No dump but there were garbage cans placed near every site. Each site has a picnic table with a ramada and a fire grill. Was able to get Verizon voice/data signal only with my antenna booster. The dirt roads in are washboard-y but don't demand high clearance. IMHO, this campground is a real gem, with widely-spaced sites and great scenery.

Date of Stay:

Very pretty scenery and well tended. The sites are very small and surrounded by rocks and many RVs had a great deal of difficulty trying to fit in. While my small motorhome fit comfortably into a back-in site, I would not recommend the park for rigs that are long, wide, or have slideouts. There is a dump station with fresh water but it's outside the campground.

Date of Stay:

Had hoped to use the laundry but all but two machines were 'out of order' and those two always in use, so I had to drive into Yuma to use a laundromat. This was a rather noisy park in unpleasant surroundings and I would only stay here again if I had no other choice.

Date of Stay:

Friendly staff but the sites were so close I literally had to crawl under my neighbor's slide to hook up my sewer hose. The laundry was clean and adequate. I only stayed one night and wouldn't want to stay any longer.

Date of Stay:

Just stayed one night. The laundry was ample and very clean. The shower, there was only one for each gender, was very old but seemed clean enough. The location was convenient from I-8 and yet rural enough to be pleasant. Staff very friendly. The WiFi was often slow. Good Verizon signal.
