First to correct a couple of things. This park tells me they don't have pull throughs - I asked. Secondly, the local cable company requires each site to have a converter box so unless you have very good access to the back of you TV and a power outlet handy - no cable. Also this park has a very high percentage of full timers or full season rigs. So the transients are generally parked on the parameter many of which sites are slopped from to back so bring some leveling blocks. If you are on the south end of the park you will get early morning truck noise from the rigs lining up to go over the border. Other than that this is an exceptional park with a super friendly staff.

When I review a park I focus pretty heavily on the pad site. I not there for the amenities which this park has a lot of. I stayed at site #3 pull through. Pretty much a disaster. While the drive did have some rock it was sloped front to back and side to side almost like it was twisted. On top of that they had replaced the the electrical box and moved it too close to the ground with about a three foot crater around it that had about an 8 inch drop right by your coach. Why? It had a 6 inch tree growing in it so this wasn't a recent event. They had a limited number of back ins that look pretty decent. The staff was very accommodating but bottom line this seems to be a park for small rigs and families with a lot of kids. BTW the rigs are so close that it makes using the picnic tables very awkward. If the guy next to you uses his fire pit- you will get smoke.

This RV "park" is simply two gravel and dirt parking lots with hookups. As noted in other reviews, what makes the place worthwhile is that you are literally on the banks of Port Townsend Bay. Access to the park is atrocious because of narrow streets and poor signage. When you come into the area you will probably be on Jefferson street. The registration office address is on Hudson which you cross twice since it is a U shaped road. In the park, Jefferson is an old, very narrow street hardly big enough for two cars let alone a big rig and car. It pays to know in advance your site number in advance because half of them are on the left or west of Jefferson and half are on the right or east side. You can "expand" the map on the park website by touching it and widening it to see where your site is. If your site number is 300 thru 335 you are on the east side and turn right were Jefferson dead ends into the second Hudson intersection. If you site is 336 or higher you're on the west side so take a left at the Jefferson/Hudson intersection. After you turn on Hudson if you're on the east side you'll see a sign for registration so park on the road or go to your site if you know the number and walk back through the buildings to get to the registration office. The sites with the best views are 338 through 347. For the most part they are for smaller rigs and a reserved very early in the season. Otherwise you get a partial view of the Bay. Spacing between rigs is minimal, with 30 amp service. Since there is minimal spacing between rigs there are no picnic tables between them but there are some scattered on the parameter of the park. They have cable and pay as you go Wi-Fi .

This park is very clean and well maintained. However, be advised that interior signage about where to check in for RVs is non-existent. Take the second entrance into the facility and look for the sign that says lobby/registration. The first turn is for the casino. Basically you pull your rig under the walk away as if you were registering at the hotel. Check in is at the hotel desk. The clerks at the desk are pleasant but can't answer many RV type questions. If you have a towed the best thing to do is to pull forward about 20-30 yards after you register and un-hook there. The roads in the RV park are tight and the drives for your space vary in length but are generally pretty tight. You may have to park cross ways in back or in front of your rig. The pads are concrete and with convenient hook ups. However, the pad widths are just big enough for your rig so you're stepping into wet grass every morning. Some of the smaller pads slope front to back so may need levelers under the front wheels. I was in #37 and that space is nice & level There is a very good amount of space between rigs but no picnic tables. They want you to eat in the casino - dah. Decent cable but highly erratic Wi-Fi to the point of almost being useless at times. My wife tells me the laundry room is small but very good. The restrooms & showers are also clean. Across on the east side of the 101 from the casino is a mini truck stop with diesel that can readily accommodate a big class A. The casino has its own gas station with diesel but the pumps are gas\diesel and you have to battle the cars to get to a space.

This park has many great features. The pads are level & solid with loads of rock, and the hookups are very convenient. I was in 11A which is front in - back out with a view of the 9 hole golf course that is part of the facility. There is a lot of maneuvering room with great space between rigs if you get one of the premium sites with a view of the course. There are little bench type picnic tables if needed. The Wi-Fi is OK and although the place is wired for it there is no cable. Although they do say there is cable in the club house. Over the air TV is weak. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the grounds are very well maintained and clean. We didn't use the restrooms\showers or the laundry. You are about 3 miles from Astoria city center and the nearest grocery shopping is about 5 miles away. Overall a great park in kind of a country setting. If you are coming the summer of 2015, the Lewis & Clark Bridge to the south is closed for repairs and your GPS may try to take you over the bridge. If you're coming from the south on 101 take the detour into the roundabout on the west side of town and the take the first exit to Marine Ave this will lead you to the park.

This is a very clean, very well maintained park with a lot of amenities, a great club house, friendly staff and social activities. However, it is a very tight park. I was in pull through #18 with a 40' class A and had to have my neighbor move his pickup to be able to get out. In most of the sites you have to park cross ways in front of your rig. Also I needed an extension to get to the sewer, which I think was just that particular pad. Wi-Fi and cable were mediocre. Also their picnic table are the "halfies" model that only seat two people.

This is a great park with some of the best WIFI I've had at any park. Can't get the cable to work well but strong over the air stations. Pads are concrete with easy hook ups. Super friendly staff. No picnic table at the pad but I think you can ask for one.

This is a good basic park. Not many amenities but level rock pads on the pull throughs with easy hook ups. A lot of full season occupants but park is very quite and very clean. No cable as advertised but you can pick up some over the air stuff. I would return.

This is a great park but they advertise they have cable which they don't. I was looking forward to watching the lady's world cup which you can't get over the air here. Also I was placed at the far end of the park which is not big deal so it being a 106 degree day I decide to use the pool and walked the 300 yards or so only to find out it had been treated and won't be open until later that night. Something that could have been mentioned while checking in on such a hot day but wasn't. Also there appears to be a limited number of pure pull throughs the majority are back to back sites that you can pull through if the other guy isn't already there.

This is a very good basic KOA. The pads are paved, level, and the hook-ups are well placed. The room in between rigs especially the pulls throughs for the bigger rigs is close, but not unreasonable. The cable TV is very good, the WI-FI is mediocre to poor. Since the park is in a hilly area, the sites for smaller rigs and back-ins for bigger rigs ascends a hill. As you go up the hill the pads are still level but you get further away from the rest room/shower facility. Towards the end of the park you’re probably 175 yards away from those facilities and you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to them. The pool and laundry room are also up the hill. This park is a good base to explore the Monterrey area, Pinnacles National Park (both east and west side) and the Missions in the area. The park is very clean and well maintained. We stayed here in a 36' fifth wheel and there was a 40' class us next to us. Room to maneuver was adequate. You do get a lot of road noise from the 101 since your about 1/2 from it.

We stayed at what I guess is called the upper loop of Antlers. This is very much and in-the-woods type park. As noted in a previous review, there was no one to check us in when we got here. Apparently, off season staffing (mid September) is very light and if you show up at lunch time, you have to wait. Fortunately, we found some maintenance personnel that directed us to our site. The sites in the upper loop all appear to be very spacious, level with a good rock base, and have a cement patio with at least one picnic table. Many sites have two tables. The hooks ups at our site are all kind of clumped together and the sewer connection is one of those right angle hook ups so you need to look around for a rock to brace your pipe. Most – but not all – sites have 50 amp. We are staying in a very large pull through that only has 30 amp for some reason. When you make a reservation I would ask for site number and if it has 30 or 50. The sites all appear to have a good amount of shade from large Ponderosa pines so satellite users may have some problems. The cable TV provided is very basic and poor quality. Same for the WI-FI. The restrooms and showers appear to be kept very clean, but are at the back end of the loop. The lake does not appear to within easy walking distance and I have yet to locate the convenience store noted in the parks web site. It may be because the lake is exceptional low at this time and the closest boat ramp is closed. There is a very basic grocery store back by the I5 turn off. Signage into and around the park is not great - so go slow.

I would rate the main park as excellent with level asphalt pads, convenient hook ups, cable, and Wi-Fi. There is plenty of room to maneuver for larger rigs. The shower, rest rooms and laundry are all very good and well maintained. Since it’s a large park you might have a long walk to those facilities and it might have an impact on the Wi-Fi in the outer reaches of the park. There are dumpsters situated at the end of each row. I wish all parks were this nice. The annex is a different story so make reservations in advance if you want to stay in the main area. which speaks to the quality of the park. The only drawback I see is that no table is provided so bring one if you need it.

This is a very nice little basic park. Pads are long and level and with a nice rock base. Hook ups are conveniently placed. Good amount of room to maneuver. The park has a large number of cable channels and WI-FI. The shower, restroom, laundry facility is small, but kept clean. The park is well maintained and landscaped. It’s on the city limits between Tillamook and Bay City so you’re about 5 miles from the city center of either town.

This is a very nice small park just south of Olympia. Its supper clean, well maintained, nicely landscaped and set amongst some old growth pines. It’s also in close proximity to a Walmart, Costco, grocery stores etc. However, the main drawback is that it’s a former KOA and like older KOAs it’s VERY tight and a lot of the pull-throughs are very close together. You park in opposite directions and the slides on the rig next to me are about 2 foot from mine. There is no cable and for some reason you can’t pick up the major TV stations over the air. The office also serves as a Texaco gas station and convenience store. The 30 amp is a light 30 amp. The back end of the park is heavy forested and is pretty much for tenters and really small rigs. Not a lot can be done about how the park was laid out, but they need to rock the pads. When it rains you end up with mud and pine needles in you rig. Putting in 50 amp would also help to make it a great park.

This is a rustic park set amongst some great old growth trees. Packwood is between Mt. Rainer NP and Mt. St. Helens NM so it makes a good base for visiting both parks. I couldn’t get the address to register on my GPS but the park is right in the middle of Packwood on the north side of highway 12 directly behind the local library. The sign for the park is about a block west of the actual office which is a home trailer that has seen better days. The grounds themselves are flat but because of the huge trees in the park and the natural terrain the ground is kind of undulating in areas so bring some leveling blocks. The hookups are OK (30 AMP only) except if you want cable. Not all sites have cable. If you want cable make sure you mention that as you check in and have an extra-long coax because I had to extend mine to the next pad. One of the neat features of the park is its proximity to the library which has a small city park along side of it with some magnificent old growth pines. There are some benches there were you can sit and pick up the library Wi-Fi. However, the park now has its own Wi-Fi. There is a small elk herd that roams the park occasionally. If you’re coming in with a tall class A like an Essex or Marathon you may want to look around first because some of the roads in the parks have some low hanging utility wires. We did not use the restrooms/showers or laundry so I can’t comment on their condition. There’s only 3-4 picnic tables in the park so bring your own. A very limited number of the pads actually have a small asphalt patio but for the most part it’s camping in the woods.
