This is a nice small park next to the Pilot truck stop travel center. It is a little tight for bigger rigs, especially those pulling a trailer like we do. The park is well maintained, the staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. The site we got is 80' long and at least 30' wide. Hookups were well placed, only one sewer hose for this park. If in this area again we would stay here, but request a further in site.

This is one of the best parks I have been in, the staff is beyond reproach being very helpful, friendly, and professional. The park is limited access, there is a welcome hut at the entrance. The laundry facilities are clean with 3 washers and 3 dryers. We got a site that was 95' long, exactly what we need with our trailer. The sites were spaced far enough apart to be very comfortable. Although we didn't use the pool or hot tub they appeared clean. Yes, there is train noise but it's muffled by a berm, and I like trains so the noise didn't bother me, the noise from I-5 was minimal. This park is close to Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainer, Portland, and not that far from Seattle and Joint Base Lewis-McCord for those of us with a military need. The town of Castle Rock is only 2 miles away with a grocery store, post office, and restaurants. This park is on my list for the next time we are in the area.

We pulled in without a reservation, the staff gave us a nice spot. This is an easy to get to park off US12 with nice wide sites and well thought out utilities. All sites are nose to tail, a layout I really like. The streets are nice and wide for easy turns, the sites are long enough that I didn't have to unhook the trailer, 80'. This is a campground I would return to if in the area again.

This is a military only facility! This is a small very nice campground laid out in a horseshoe with six spots. The spots are so big that two 40' RVs could park in each one, plenty of parking for all those extra vehicles people like to bring along. The lake area the campground is in is very nice with a walking path around the lake. In the morning the ducks and geese fly in and in the evening they fly back out, an impressive site to see. There is only 30amp service and no sewer at the sites, there is a dump station available. For those military folks I'm sorry there is no commissary on base, but there is a new exchange that is fairly stocked with the necessities, kind of a super stocked convenience store. There is a gas station close to the campground but no diesel. This was the second time we stayed here and will stay here again when we visit the San Francisco area being only 38 miles to the city. This is not the easiest place to get to which in my opinion is one of the recommendations.

This campground is right next to I-5 but I hardly hear any road noise. This campground is on the side of a hill and they make it work. I got a 75' spot so I could park my motorhome and the trailer I tow. There is ample room to park the car next to the motorhome. I did look into the bathroom and laundry and found both to be clean and functional. This location is convenient to Crater Lake National Park, with a lovey drive getting there along the Rogue River, and the Oregon Caves National Monument. There are numerous stores close by as well as easy on and off to I-5 and US 199. If in this area again I will stay here.

This was the fourth time we stayed here and found this campground meets all our needs. The spaces are are long enough for my rig at 65'. I tow a trailer with my car and motorcycle on board. We used the bathrooms and laundry and found both to be clean and functional. The only issues I have are parking for cars and noise at the Harley Davidson dealer. There just isn't enough parking, and the bikes seemed to come in to get their pictures taken at all hours. The park has added another six spots behind the office. Yes, there are some long term residents here but there aren't any permanent residents with all the junk that entails. Next time we are in Eureka we will stay here again.

This campground really needs updating. We did have an electric issue that was addressed within an hour and fixed. There is very poor cell and Verizon internet signal. The roads are dirt as are the spots. As for the long termers most of them are off to the side of the campground and most don't have lots of junk laying around. This campground could be a very nice place with some major improvements. The couple that own it were very nice and friendly. This campground is convenient to Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park and a moderate drive to Yosemite National Park. This park is quiet which is very important to us. We would stay here again if in this area.

This is the second time we have stayed here. This is a very nice campground, unless you are looking for programs for the kids or other such things. Each site has two pedestals, one for 30amp and the other for 50amp. Each pedestal has water and sewer along with electric. In essence each site is a pull through of 90' length but will accommodate 2 40' RVs nose to tail with one having 30 amp and the other having 50amp. It would be tight but doable. The view of the mountains from the campground is fantastic. The office people are very friendly and helpful. State highway 64 goes to the south rim of the Grand Canyon 58 miles north. We used this location for our visit to the Grand Canyon NP, Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater, and Wupatki National Monuments. The town of Williams has many attraction for tourists and a gun fight on Friday nights. Will be staying here again in the future.

We arrived without a reservation, but they got us in anyway. This was the perfect spot for our visit to Carlsbad Caverns and the Guadalupe Mountains National Parks. The park is a little tight but manageable; we are 65' total length. They have two dog walking areas where your dog can run some. The park is easy in/out next to US 62/180. The people in the office were very friendly and helpful. The sites are level gravel with shade trees that didn't interfere with satellite reception. We didn't partake of any of the facilities but they do have a nice pool there. On our next visit to Carlsbad we will stay here.

We only stayed one night, but this place was perfect for our needs. The sites were level gravel, didn't need to deploy the leveling jacks. The folks here were very helpful and friendly. We didn't use the shower or bathroom facilities or the laundry. The sites were very easy to get into and out of. If we were driving through this area and need somewhere to spend a night or two, this would be at the top of our list.

This review is to be considered an update to my previous review since improvements have been completed. This campground is so much better than what they had, the spaces have a 60' concrete pad and the entire spot is approximately 80' with gravel at each end. Each spot has a picnic table and fire ring. There is a playground for the kids, laundry and bathroom/shower facilities. In a conversation with one of the outdoor rec folks, I was told that there are plans for 10 more spots, all the same size as the current ones. The plan also includes the closing of the older camp. The two ponds have fish, catch and release only, and no license required. Check in is at the Air Capital Inn - not outdoor recreation. Access to the laundry is obtained at outdoor recreation where you get an access card for the reader on the laundry door. There are two washers and two dryers, all free. The Famcamp is big rig friendly. We had good satellite and Verizon WiFi reception. I will stay here again when I'm in this area. This Famcamp is one of the better campgrounds in my experience. The only negative for me was the lack of a dog run area and the height of the sewer hookup, I had to get some rain gutter to make a bridge from the RV hookup and the sewer dump. The folks at outdoor recreation stated that this will be fixed as soon as possible.

We stayed here in 2010 and liked the park. This time we are staying two weeks. The staff is very friendly and worked with me on some power issues I was having with the electrical systems. There are 50'-65' pull throughs and some back ins. I didn't have any problems getting into any site except one, #48. #48 is right next to the office and has a curb that most big rigs wouldn't be able to get in to. This park is right off US101 next to the Harley Davidson dealership. There's a Target right across US101. If I come to this area again I will be sure to stay here. The rate reflects the weekly with the Good Sam price.

Had to unhook trailer but they had a good place for me to park it for the night. Nice park right off US101. Level back in sites, easy hook ups. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Nice park off US101. Sites level and long. Staff very friendly. A bit tight not cramped, I got in and out with our 40'er and 24' trailer. Will stay here again when we go north in the Pacific Northwest.

This is not your typical fairgrounds campground,not a parking lot, this is a campground. Easy access to US97 to Bend and Redmond. We spent four days here and loved it. Will stay here again if in the area.
