Great find! Grounds as neat as a pin and wonderful shade trees. Connections were up-to-date and sites were very level. Cement patio and picnic table at each site as well as beautifully manicured grass. Office staff very helpful and friendly. Easy access off of I-5 or Highway 36, but no traffic noise. Many conveniences nearby within walking distance if necessary. Would give a 10 if park had been paved but we did not mind the gravel sites at all. Would definitely stay here again for any length of time.

Needed an overnight stop on I-10 and this was a perfect location. No frills park in countryside but newer full hook-up sites which are very long pull-thrus. Easy access for all sized rigs but some sites are uneven. Grass and/or gravel sites which owner lets you choose for yourself. Small, rustic bathrooms and showers but clean. Pretty little pond with areas for walking. We would stay here again when driving through the area.

I don't understand the 5 star rating that Woodall's gives this property as it is not a resort. It is a very nice place to stay for any length of time. Very well kept sites with fresh green grass and well located shade trees. Paved, level, parking pads with picnic tables and full hook-ups. Mostly permanent residents, but well kept sites and quiet friendly people. The I-10 noise could really be a problem for lots of people. I used a big fan to drown it out so I could sleep. Bathrooms and showers were spotless and the pool would be nice in warmer weather. We had no complaints about our stay except the highway noise, and might stay here again if needing an overnight site.

We have never been treated so wonderfully by a park's staff before. We came in for an overnight and were having electrical problems. A man on the technical staff spent an hour checking our electric circuits and changing out a GFI outlet. After that, he and his wife went out to get pizza for us as we had no means of transportation. The location of this park is perfect for an I-10 stopover and it is very clean with cement sites and roads. Lots of permanent residents but spotless sites throughout. Beautiful lake views and fresh green grass throughout. At first we felt that the price was a little high but, after the great service we got, we have not a single complaint. Would definitely stop here again and stay longer.

Part of Gulf Islands National Seashore Park. Indicates the lack of funding that National Park Service has for their park up-keep. I gave it a 7 because of the beautiful location which overrides the non-descript sites and worn out bathhouses. If you love natural surroundings with access to both a gorgeous bay and fabulous, white sand beach, then this is your spot. Firepits, picnic tables, electric and water all work well but are old. Sites are paved and well spaced. Wonderful hiking trails, fishing, swimming, beach combing, wildlife and historic Ft. Pickens to explore. We got 50% off of the regular $20 rate due to being seniors. This park is definitely worthy of a nice vacation, and we would definitely return.

If there had been water and sewer hookups, I would rate this CG a 10. Great reception in office. Back-ins and large pull-throughs to choose from and all very level gravel. Lots of space between sites. Great hiking trails along the Yampa River. Clean laundry and restrooms. Showers cost a quarter but worth it. Trees are not large enough to make great shade yet, but will be wonderful someday. We stayed here to tour Steamboat Springs area and did not mind the 25 mile drive as some people would. Conveniently located right on US 40 but the noise was not bothersome at all.

Fantastic location right next to the Rocky Mountain National Park with the Colorado River running right through the resort. A real ranch experience with horse stables and great rides. We chose the large sites in the forested section for the space between sites, 50 amp service, and the gorgeous wild flowers everywhere. There are some full hookup sites for long term stays at the back of the resort, but we were fine without sewer hookups for a week. Large elk meadow 1/2 mile away with herds daily. Great access to National Forest for off-roading or hiking. Had an adolescent moose walk right beside the motorhome one day but the best sight was the huge bull moose which calmly walked through the campground. You can call the sites: rustic. No paving or fancy patios, but picnic tables and fire pits and water faucets. This is our favorite type of camping. It is very much like a COE campground. Service was friendly, great breakfasts and ice cream.

The first word that comes to mind is "interesting". The 5 rating by Woodalls must be a mistake. The surrounding scenery is gorgeous: the Bayou and the trees. Nice docks and boating access. The sites are spacious and easily accessible (we have a 45 foot class A rig) but there are lots of older RV's here and the sites are not well kept. Overnight spots had good hook-ups and some had concrete pads. The facilities are all showing their age and wear. Looks more like an old fashioned camping resort than an RV Resort. Has two nice pools and a good cafe. For an overnight stay, this was acceptable, but I would not spend any length of time here. Wrong ambiance for me: just didn't feel comfortable.

Our second visit to Tier Drop Park which has become our favorite stopover place on I-8. People in the office are top-notch and very friendly. We were warmly welcomed even though staying only one night. Our price was based on a special promotional rate for overnights. Lots of very neat and clean long-term spots (some with park models) with flowers and palm trees. A very large transient parking area with excellent, modern utilities. This is desert so expect a gravel parking area but it is very level and offers huge campsites. We drive a 45 foot motor home and tow a Jeep so we were very pleased. Would have been great for a longer stay and sightseeing. Wellton is close enough to Yuma and other attractions and desert recreation and has all the conveniences you will need. This park would make a great rally site for groups. Our only complaint was that it had already gotten too hot for April and we had to use the AC. A little shade would have been nice but never necessary until summertime. Great sunrise and sunset views. We will always come back going either East or West.

It is a very clean and neat campground. It is extremely well maintained. The sites are all paved and are very long for any size RV and tow vehicle. It is easy to get in and out. There are beautiful surroundings of forests and hills but no trees in the park. There is great Wi-fi access. Beautiful Devil's Lake is across the street but there is no access from the park. There is a small city park with dock and ramp right up the street. It is close to casino and plenty of restaurants. The utilities are top notch. I would give this park a higher rating except for the closeness of the sites. It would have made for a lot more pleasant stay if they had just added a few feet between rigs. Our neighbor's awning almost touches our coach. There is not much room for sitting outside of your coach. The end sites are very roomy with fire pits but good luck getting one of those. We stayed here for a week and would stay here again but not for such a long time. This is an excellent park for short stays or over night although some of the back-ins are roomier.

This campground was a very pleasant surprise. The sites were long enough for our 45 footer and a tow car. Connections were all excellent. Space was wide enough for our four slides plus a nice sitting area. Beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees separate each site for privacy and beauty. Hummingbirds and butterflies were on the flowers. The access to the dunes is right there so you can walk up anytime. The off road vehicles that were using the dunes do not disturb the campers at all. You can hear vehicles on the dunes during the day, but it is not unpleasant or annoying. The management was some of the best we have encountered. The office staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. Woahink Lake is extremely clear and beautiful and we were able to put our kayak in right off the campground's dock which is across the street. We spent only one week here, but could have spent all summer very happily. It was peaceful and quiet, and only a short drive into Florence which is also wonderful. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it highly to anyone...especially big rigs who need the space.

Stayed 7 nights on a weekly rate. Great view of the river from the windows of our rig...parked 3 feet from the edge and could watch the birds, otters, and deer from there. Oregon is experiencing a water shortage and campgrounds are not allowed to water their grass, therefore all of the campsite areas were brown...this prevented me from giving this one a 10. Great river access for boating, fishing or swimming. Long, paved, back-in site. The pull-throughs are not too close together so are very comfortable. Peaceful and quiet. Great fire ring at our site on the river. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful flowers everywhere and wild berries for picking. I'm glad we chose to stay here instead of the campgrounds near the harbor that we checked out. It was just a short, beautiful drive to town (1 and 1/2 miles). We had no problem driving our 45' motor home with tow vehicle on this road and the driveway down to the campground was very easy. A few of the "seasonal sites" were a little messy which was a distraction but we just sat next to the river and had a ball. Children would probably be bored here if they don't fish or have a boat.

I'm sure you all know how sometimes in life the people you deal with are the most important factor in a transaction. Well Jeff and his family are beyond compare when it comes to perfect hosts. I wish we could have stayed at Camp Blanco all summer just to be with them and the other nice people we met there. Loved our pull-through site. Had 30 amp but never needed the 50 amp we had requested. Great shade, clean, clean, clean...nice flowers...small and intimate. Port Orford Beach, just south of town, was gorgeous and long. Cape Blanco State Park was an all day visit. Battle Rock Harbor and the Coast Guard Museum were very interesting. Lots of good hiking at the museum. The harbor was fascinating with it's boat hoist system..only 6 like it in the world. Our 3 days were filled with things to do and some good food. Some of the sites are a little close together but others offer lots of privacy. Tell Jeff what you need and he will see what he can do. Great little boat restored with a bedroom for overflow guests. You are going to like it here unless you are looking for a pristine, paved and landscaped site out of a magazine. Loved the little welcome basket delivered by Jeff's children. These owners go above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay wonderful.

I agree with other reviewers that this is a great place to stay in the Eureka area. Location is convenient and park has been recompletely renovated so that it looks new. Sites are paved and very long and spacious. Utilities are top notch, but, yes, you do need a long sewer hose at some sites. Noise from 101 might bother some people but it was not unpleasant to us. Close to Redwoods and all area attractions as well as great restaurants. Owner and office manager are extremely accommodating. Big Rigs will love this place and everything is very neat and clean with a pretty view of the estuary and bridge. Would return here anytime.

What a transformation! This campground used to look like a parking lot and it has been completely re-done with double-wide sites and very long parking pads. Paved roads and pads with nice grass between sites. Easy access for the largest rigs and a great place to park and visit all of wine country for a few days. No recreation features, but most people aren't here for that. Clean, neat, great electric, water and sewer and a nice quiet location. Would return to this campground over and over again.
