I can't give this one a ten as I didn't see the restrooms. Reservations were great, check-in was easy and VERY friendly, sites were clean and since they were pretty empty, he said to pick the one I liked and they'd see which one it was. The sites were gravel, level, clean and weed free, (the weed guy has a weed torch and he was fun to watch) and well separated by old growth hedges. Kind of like the hedge rows in France, you just aren't going to get through them. Wi-Fi was strong, full bars, but a bit slow and the cable was weird but the sky was clear for satellite. We really enjoyed our stay.

I really have to comment unfavorably about this park.I stayed here twice this week and the first one was $38 with Good Sam for a regular site. I made two reservations at the same time. Had to unhook the toad at the office and then park the rig, a 40' motorhome, and walk back to the toad and drive it to the site. The young redhead at check-in was very nice and very efficient. Had to pull out VERY carefully in the AM as it was very quite tight and then go back and get the toad and hook up. When I came back for my second stay, they told me that it was going to be $42 with Good Sam. Oh,all they had left was a premium site and I'd be able to pull in without unhooking. I didn't ask for a premium site and you have to unhook anyway. The young lady, not the nice redhead,asked if they had guaranteed the rate and I said no. The manager did OK another two dollars off. Unhooked and drove to the site and where you enter the row, the guy on the left had his toad sticking out in the lane and the motorhome on the right was ALL the way back in his site and so there was some back and forth to get into the lane. Got into the site OK and it needed a bit of front to back leveling if you were going to put your jacks down. I didn't as I was leaving early and was solo. I went and got the toad and hooked it up and in the AM swung as wide as I could getting out and still curbed the toad because it was so tight. Oh,and that was a premium site. Oh well, back to another park next time.

WOW !!!!!! I have always wanted to stay either here or at the resort next door and we finally got to. I'm really glad that we picked this one. Absolutely awesome set-up with wide roads and great side by side hookups. I don't normally like them, but these are well thought out. It cost $5 more for the river front, but after the discounts, it came to less than the $5 extra. Fresh cut, lush grass all the way to the river, fire pits, and BBQs in central areas, and they supply the firewood. We will definitely be staying here again.

Been here before and will stay here again. Great place. Check-in was easy even though they were backing up, but the folks at the desk have a system and it works as long as you follow the lead. You pull up and they take your license number and then when you pull up to the door, there are just two of you that go in and when you are finished and your guide takes you to your site, the next two rigs pull up. Great sites and level. There is a shuttle on call for the casino and you get a discount if you have a players card. The only thing I didn't appreciate was the rifle range just up the canyon from the campground and I don't want to have to listen to that as I also have it at home.

Rated a nine as there are no kids facilities here, but it is a really nice place. ALL back in sites, but easy access. Good places to eat in walking distance as well as a great produce stand and deli there. It is close to a large marina complete with saws and sea lions, as well as a couple of fishing and whale watching charters. It is an easy run down to Monterey and Caramel to the south or to Santa Cruz to the north.

Date of Stay:

I am rating this a nine because of the side by side setup here. Everything else was great. We got there right after the office closed, but the lady came out and chose a site for us and said to pay in the AM and then opened the gate for us. It's a code gate and she has a remote. We got hooked up and walked the dog and got a look at where they are totally redoing the other side of the campground. We stayed here a number of years ago in a travel trailer and they had us backed up all the way to the fence and then complained about our 'Burb sticking kinda out in the road.That ain't gonna happen there anymore with the long sites they have put in now. They are still side by side, but nice setups.

We stayed here last year at this time and only the weather was better. That's not to say that the park wasn't better as I give this park a 10 even without sewer hookups. The staff is great and the sites are always clean and the security is top notch. The best sites, IMHO, are the ones on the lower loop which would be 20-30 something. After staying at this park for two years in a row, I'd really like to see what some of the county's other camping parks are like.

Nothing wrong with this place. We've stayed here before for several days at a time and did it again this year. Check-in was great and friendly. Security is good and unobtrusive. The little store was good and so was the food in the little cafe. Didn't get to use the pool or the golf, but it looked as if others were enjoying it. The man at the concierge desk was unobtrusive about asking me if I wanted tickets when he saw me looking at the calendar of events in town.

     

Beaver KOA

Nothing wrong with this KOA. Yes, it was windy and yes, it was all gravel and yes, it is in the middle of nowhere, but this is desert country and it was a great place. Nice long pull-throughs and good placement on the utilities. There are nice tables and great fire pits. The check-in is great and easy. I guess it is hard to get a site here in the summer as the fishing is great and there are hundreds of miles of ATV trails that can be accessed from the park. It does have a pool and small playground and corrals for horses and the lady said they have weekend movies for the kids in the summer.

Date of Stay:

I'm giving this KOA a 10 even though the roads are a bit tight. If you can't maneuver through it, you shouldn't be driving a big rig. The park was clean and well trimmed, and the desk person was great. The only downside was that the water pressure was very HIGH and I thought my 12 y/o built in regulator could handle it... Wrong...Blew the hose fitting loose. Oh well, I was planning on replacing it anyway and did. They also have a car wash next door and it has the same high water pressure and was great for getting the green stuff off of the toad after a winter in WA. We will stay here again when in the area.

Date of Stay:

We have stayed here a couple of times and the only thing different is that they are either upgrading some old sites or are adding some new ones. Check-in is easy and fun, the desk lady is funny, and they take you to your site and help you park. (Don't flirt with the lady at the desk too much as the old guy that takes you to your site is her husband and also funny.) It was quite cold and he recommended that we put water in our tanks and then pull the hose, which we did, as it had frozen solid the night before in Prosser and I had to put it away unrolled.

We have stayed here before and have had good experiences, BUT this time was different. We got there and asked for one of the several sites we had stayed in before and was told they weren't available and she put us in one next to them. Well,no-one showed in them for two days. The site she gave us had a tight entrance between a concrete power box on one side and a tree and pole on the other. I checked the tree and watched the box to make sure the toad cleared it,which it did barely, but missed the three inch limb stub on the tree and got the mirror, oops. Got in and hooked up and the power box took several attempts to get 50 amp power and I finally turned on ALL the circuit breakers and Voila, I had power. Tried the internet and that was a no-go uh-uh, no-way anytime. The neighbors all said the same thing and that it's been that way for AT LEAST three months. The office said that they'd check the box, but that didn't work.. Oh and guess who was parked RIGHT UNDER the wi-fi box. Told the office about the tree and there wasn't really any response, except they'd look into it. The guy in the next site said that one trailer had caught it already, two months ago and there had been two MHs that had taken their mirrors off too. The limb is very hard to see as it blends in with the tree. I do like the place, but the management was not very forthcoming and I may stay here again, but in a different site.

We stayed here as our favorite RV park in the area is now closed. I was kind of worried about traffic as we wanted to go to L&C college area and the Terwilliger area, but it really turned out ok. Just don't try to get in and out of town during rush hour, but we did find a couple of alternates. The park is very nice and easy to get to and around in. The lady in the office was very nice and helpful. We stayed here in the spot across the street on our very first trip in a travel trailer 10-12 years ago, and I don't think the place has changed at all. Very nice then and still nice now.

Date of Stay:

The only reason I knock this down is for the traffic noise. We stayed here for one night on the way home from California and it's a great place as it's an easy in and out and well laid out for just pulling in and setting up. The owner/manager is a really great guy and we met several interesting folks out walking their dogs. We've stayed here before and will again.

Well, we're back here again and got our bag of free oranges. In fact as we stayed here twice on our trip this time, we got a bag both times. The sites are great. The office folks are great and check-in is easy, especially if you've been here before. We'll be back. The nutshop around the corner is great, the trees were in bloom and it smelled awesome.
