An excellent park handy to the interstate. Kept very clean with plenty of room between sites. Sites are level, concrete and have a picnic pad and tables with each site. Plenty of water pressure, Tengo internet (very fast and free), has everything a traveller needs.

Very good RV park kept in excellent condition. Front desk staff friendly and efficient. Everything works plus this is a family oriented park (in other words, pool etc). I didn't need or use any of the amenities. Park appears to be relatively new.

If you are looking for luxury, this isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a nice place to stay with GREAT service and many amenities, definitely stay here. The lady at the desk is an example of how people should be when greeting guests. She is outgoing and friendly and very helpful. The sites, while not spectacular, were everything I needed. Remember, this is far west Texas, there isn't much around. It also has an excellent small cafe with daily specials. I would not hesitate to stay there every time I'm in the area.

Don't get excited about my numerical rating until you read what follows. This is NOT an RV park per se. Rather it is on a private ranch which is well known among rock-hounds as being one of the best places in the country to look for agates, jasper and other rocks. The fact that it has some spaces for RV's is secondary to the primary purpose of being there. As to the sites themselves, they are on dirt (no rain for the past two years, side to side is pretty level but the front is higher than the rear. There are NO amenities other than the ranch owner who is a delightfully helpful woman. There are no showers or bathroom, nothing of that nature at all. If you need water, bring your own although there is water at the sites. It's just not "approved" for drinking. Buddy the dog is a fixture at the ranch and is a very friendly cow dog. Hunting for rocks is great either for families or individuals. There's a lot to be found on the ranch which spreads over miles and miles. Just to be able to rock hunt here is an 11. Add in the being able to bring your RV directly to the ranch is - priceless.

I rated this park based on the location. If it was located in a popular area I would've rated it lower. However, it has everything you NEED. The Wi-Fi is excellent, I'm able to get satellite without a problem, it has the best off-lead dog park I've ever seen anywhere. When you register you will get a coupon for Blimpie's, gas and other stuff. They have a wide selection of cable channels but I didn't use it. The sites were narrow but adequate - barely. There are several gas stations in town that any size MH or 5ver can enter and depart easily. The area is very dusty, not the park's fault, just the way it is in this area. The only negative I have is that, like so many other small towns, the people who serve you at the gas station, store, wherever are totally uninterested in you as if you are imposing on them. Again, this is not a knock on this park, just an advisory for anyone expecting to have a rip roaring good time in Green River. I will always stay here when passing through Green River and recommend it to others.

I almost never rate a CG a "10" but it is hard not to on this one. It has EVERYTHING you might want. Immaculate grounds, a restaurant that will deliver to your site, good Internet, 200 yards from the Snake River, you name it, it has it. Also a service station as the registration area. My only "complaint" is that there can be noise from the nearby interstate. But for that I'd rate it an "11".

When there is only one RV park in a town in the middle of nowhere, one wouldn't expect much. However, this one is a jewel. Lots of trees, everything works as it should and easy in, easy out of Highway 20. My only complaint is that the sites near 20 are somewhat noisy although it gets better at night. I highly recommend this park.

Date of Stay:

Solid concrete with shrubs between sites, pull throughs and back-ins, all level, easy in and out. Great staff and owner, all very helpful. Dog friendly as long as rules are observed, dog run was just increased in size about 2-3 times as large as previously. Wi-Fi is excellent, five bars all the time. Location is just off Hwy 101 but with almost no road noise. Close to Fred Meyer, BiMart, Safeway, about five miles from casino. Very windy this summer but temps generally around low 60s during the day, very comfortable. Many accesses to beach available. The sole reason for not giving a "10" is there is no grass, but that's almost nit-picking. Will accommodate any size rig with no problem. I highly recommend staying here.

Date of Stay:

If I was in a different site, I could easily rate this much higher. What I DIDN'T like about it was that the site is too narrow for a big rig and too close to my neighbors. To park my toad, I have to almost be touching the MH on a perpendicular. Water pressure is very low, but usable. There ARE a few sites that will accommodate a big rig, but I wasn't able to get any of them, although I tried before arriving. It seems that the sites will accommodate a large 5ver better than a large MH. WiFi is free and fast and all hookups are in the right place, easy to access. There are two dog runs available, both in good shape. Staff is professional and helpful. I can see the ocean (barely) from the window of my MH, although I'm not parked at a site where the view is much better. The location of the Park is good as it can easily be used as a base for sightseeing along the coast. The local police are constantly giving out speeding tickets on Hwy 101 (25/35 mph) so you need to be careful when out and about. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from plus a casino. There is a Safeway and several smaller chain groceries, Bank of America, Papa Murphey's and Wal-Mart 22 miles away in Newport, not to mention numerous junque (tourists traps) stores. I really like this place but I wish I had a slightly bigger site for my 40' MH. There are a couple of sites that would allow me to rate this as high as 9 in that case.

Date of Stay:

Rate is based on Oregon's vet-free for five days (this web site apparently doesn't accept "$0"). My rating may be higher than others because I had everything I wanted and they aren't available at all sites. My site was a long, level pull through that afforded me the smallest sliver of open sky which allowed my satellite to work for the TV. Cell service was outstanding but there is no longer any Wi-Fi as there used to be several years ago. The staff and volunteers were excellent (as usual) and kept the campground neat, clean and orderly. There was a healthy mix of RVers and tents (especially over Memorial Day weekend) with none of the noise frequently noted in state/local parks. The kids seemed to be well behaved and having fun. This is my favorite state park in the country and it lived up to my expectation - again.

Date of Stay:

Very nice, well maintained park. Far enough away from I-5 so noise not a problem. Difficult (impossible for me) to get satellite because of the beautiful trees but cable TV is available free. Nice dog "walk" area on perimeter of park. Sites are gravel but level. I'd definitely stay here again.

It's hard for me to give this park a fair rating because, IMO, it's WAY OVERPRICED. Location, location, location. $50 per day for a "premium" site (non-holiday, $75 three day minimum for holidays), I expect a great deal more. My site is unlevel (rear wheels off the ground by three inches. Yeah I know.) Many sites the same and have trees encroaching on them. All sites need TLC, unless the park wants to be considered rustic. For families, this is a great park with a petting zoo and other family friendly amenities, none of which I need. I was able to get satellite at my site but many won't. The WiFi (free Tengo!) is blazingly fast. As a warning to travellers from Merced: Highway 120, with its switchbacks and SEVERE grades is as scary for a large gasser like mine, as is Red Mountain Pass, maybe worse. I would not consider returning here, but if you don't mind being robbed or have kids, this might be for you. Sorry if this rating is contradictory in spots, but I don't know how else to rate it and be accurate.

It takes a little effort to find this place but we did. It has FHU, WiFi (Tengo with coupon at office), a pool, and extra friendly check in. Primarily a long term/full time place, it takes in RVers as well in a neat, tidy park. Sites are concrete and level with small grass plots adjoining.

Date of Stay:

This has everything you HAVE to have for an overnight stay. Friendly professional check-in and escort to site. Sites are level and on dirt/sand. "Extras" such as 50 amp and cable TV cost extra. I would recommend this park for overnight only.

Date of Stay:

Other than today's wind - over which they obviously have no control - I can't see how anyone could find fault with this place. The front desk is the best and most friendly I've seen and anticipated all my questions before I asked them. The site is perfect for us although the sewer hookup requires an extra long length. Wifi and our satellite reception exceptional. I wish we were staying here for more than two days.
