A green oasis in the middle of the brown of eastern Oregon. Very accommodating lady in the office, beautiful mowed lawns, nice view of the Columbia River. Easy to get in pull through sites and lots of back in sites with shade. Now for the con: lots of freeway and railroad noise. The park looks out over the Columbia River bridge and the traffic is noisy and endless. A very busy railroad track is across the river in Washington and we were awakened frequently in the night by whistles. We would probably not stay here again due to the noise.

Price paid reflects use of Senior Pass. A primitive, very large (238 sites), no hookups (water is available but the faucets have no threads) USFS campground on the shore of Diamond Lake. Be careful when making a reservation through Recreation.gov for this park if you have a big rig. Many of the sites are small, most are ridiculously sloped front to back, un-level side to side and hard to get into. With that said, we had no problems getting our 40 foot, no slide motorhome into a double site in the "H" loop, we also had no problems on the roads leading to our site. ALL sites have a "reserved" sign stapled to the site number post, even the site we were assigned for the night--strange! Sites are $21 for a double, $16 for a single. The park is dirty, trash in many of the sites, trash on the roads, and our fire pit had not been cleaned in what looked like forever. The newer bath/shower house near our "H" loop site was dirty, hair in the sinks, no soap to wash your hands--no dispensers, nothing. No towels to dry your hands and the air dryer did not work. Hundreds of trees have been cut in this park and just left laying, giving the park a very unkempt look. Could those trees not have been cut into firewood and the firewood sold to make money?? When we pulled into the entrance the female ranger on duty in the new gate house stuck her head out the window and said, "That thing will never fit in here, try Broken Arrow campground." As we have friends with a 40 foot, 4 slide rig who stayed in this park in September, 2012, we knew this wasn't true and persevered. The shower houses and the dump station have signs which read, "donations accepted, please help us keep this service." I take exception to this when the fees are so high for a site with no hookups.

Right in Coos Bay on a canal of the bay, the owner was very obliging, parking us in a prime spot with our front windshield looking out over the water. In spite of being in a busy area of Coos Bay, our spot was very quiet. There is a major train track right outside the gates of the RV, but it is seldom used--in the four days we were there a set of train cars was moved once. Out the back gate of the RV park is a paved walking path which leads to downtown Coos Bay, the marina, plus great fish and chips. The owner was nice enough to let me keep a key to the gate for the entire time we stayed. The only "con" for this park--the lack of anywhere to walk the dog. The entire city of Coos Bay must be having issues with the Water Department--there is very little green grass anywhere, even the nicer homes have let their lawns go brown. There was one very small patch of brown grass with a sign, "Dog Walk Area." The rest of the larger brown areas of grass in the RV park had signs which read, "NO DOGS in this area."

Nicest, newest, cleanest RV park in Aransas Pass, TX. Rate reflected is monthly and includes electricity. The older sites are much more spacious, although not as long as the newer sites. Owner built the new sites with NO space between each site, only a strip of grass and two palm trees. Management prefers long term guests and the park is probably more than half full of oil field workers. Lots of traffic coming and going all the time in and out of the park, lots of diesel pickups firing up at 5am heading out to work. The park has two gates and for same strange reason they lock the "front" gate at 8pm forcing all traffic to come and go past the "newer" sites--it was like a freeway going past our site at times! The RV park sits on a very busy 4 lane avenue plus is just off Texas Highway 35--the noise from both roads is very noticeable. There are very few activities at this park other than karaoke.

Grubby, dusty, crowded campground for $36 a night! The owner is pleasant and accommodating but this place could use some sprucing up!

Easy access from I-29 but far enough from freeway for park to be quiet. There is no obtrusive lighting, Verizon phone and air-card both worked well. There are hiking trails but we did not use them. The streets and sites are paved. There are only two pull through sites in whole park. It was a nice spot!

We had a beautiful, quiet spot on a lake. There is no obtrusive lighting. Verizon phone and air-card both worked. We have a 40 foot motorhome and had no problems pulling into one of the pull through sites. This park has hiking trails and is a great spot for one night with easy access.

Rate posted reflects monthly rate. We stayed here 2 months in early 2012. Great RV park, paved streets and concrete sites. Fast, free Wi-Fi. Managers are awesome people, making everyone feel welcome. Some activities. Cedar Key is only 7 miles away with lots of things to do, places to eat. Hiking was good at Cedar Key Scrub Reserve only one mile from RV park. We loved it here.

If quiet is important, this park is not for you. It is a gorgeous, extremely well maintained park. The absolute nicest Escapee's park we have ever stayed in. The staff is so pleasant, the grounds are immaculate, the facilities first rate. The dry camp spots where you are located if arriving after 5pm, could use a little work as it's very unlevel! The Wi-Fi is in the clubhouse only. With all that said, the noise of the continuously running train located about a mile away was terrible. You can clearly hear the train whistle and rumble. But if you are not bothered by noise, this park can't be beat!

Sites are very tight, you better like your neighbor! You can hear the freeway and train noise. The park grounds are lovely, well maintained but the $43 price should include Wi-Fi that works at every site (it did not work at our original site), a pool and spa that have water in them (they were drained) and a whole lot of other amenities! Billings RV parks are a rip-off to say the least.

Rate reflects Passport America rate. Quiet, lots of stars, large sites, out in the country. Owners are very accommodating and helpful. So much to do in the area. Lots of hiking trails right out the back of the park. Great place to stay for a few days.

When we arrived at this park, we were very impressed with its setting, the golf course adds so much beauty and green to the desert setting. There are blooming cactus, the grounds are immaculate, the sites are large and the residents friendly. There are many trees with some providing shade to the RV sites. Our excitement lasted long enough to read the pet policy. If you have a pet, you are restricted to sites in the most undesirable section of the park, away from the clubhouse/pool complex, and away from the pitch and putt and the golf course, and backing up to the noisy streets. We won't return.

The park is located in a beautiful desert setting with views all around. All the huge sites are angled, giving every site a view. There is great desert hiking and around the perimeter of the park is good dog walking, also. The laundry has too few washers/dryers for a park its size. We stayed here a month at a rate of $425 plus electric. Staff at this park could use some lessons in customer service, too. Our only real complaint while staying there was that the wind BLEW incessantly, no fault of the park's.

This park just opened and is in a beautiful desert setting in far west Tucson. Some sites back to BLM land with spectacular desert and mountain views. It is very quiet at night and the night sky is awesome. Sites are large, gravel with some pull throughs and some back-ins. Streets are paved. There are no restrooms or showers. There is a small laundromat with new machines very reasonably priced. We loved this park and our only complaint was the huge gravel the owner put on all the sites: it is a hazard to walk on. Activities are planned for the next winter season. The owner is trying to sell park models for set up in this park, something we hate to see happen.

This park is an Escapees Rainbow Park but you do not have to be an Escapees member to stay. The rate listed in this review reflects membership. It is a predominately park model/permanent RV site park with people owning their lots but has a large number of RV sites for rent. Although this park is located in a beautiful area with wonderful opportunities for hiking and ATV use, we gave it a poor rating due to the people working there and those living in all the park models. We felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome in this park. It is also located on an extremely busy two lane highway, making it noisy at times.
