This is one of the best KOAs that we stay at all summer long. It is very well managed, clean, and the staff is very helpful. It appears to have expanded significantly since the last time we were here which has impacted water pressure and WIFI service. However, we plan to return the next time we're in Glacier. They have premium sites and I would request a site on the north end of the park which east. The south end of the park has a due west exposure in the middle of the summer.

This largely a private class A park that rents lots when the owners are away. It has two things going for it: the lots are quiet and secluded and the proximity to the center of Bigfork. Some of the lots are very well done and some not so much; so it all depends on where you end up. I was assigned lot #1 which is not totally paved nor level nor clean. Also getting to the utility side of your coach in this lot is difficult - very narrow on that side. Plus the landscaping needs some major work on this lot. Resort Park? This park is the closest one to the resort city of Bigfork which is a cool little tourist town. All the lots that I saw are very heavily shaded so roof mounted satellite is very problematic here. If there is any weather in western Montana no analog channels beyond PBS. The lots are all back in lots but the manager does a great job in spotting help. She is off site so you need to call prior to your arrival. The water pressure can be erratic particularly in heavy usage hours. They were working on it while we were here but I didn't see any improvement. BTW the ground crew arrives early Monday morning like at 7:30 to mow the lawn. The best place to hook up the toad is the church parking lot across the street.

     

Butte KOA

Pretty typical KOA. I was in a slot for a larger motorhome which was fairly level and had a very good amount of room (grass) between pads. This KOA has a lot of cabin and tent business which wasn't a problem. Fairly quiet park as far as road noise goes. Like many KOAs they could do a better job of rocking some of the pad sites. The good news about this KOA is that they have a fried chicken place on site that sells great fried chicken and pies. The locals use it as well.

If you're going to Bryce Canyon (which I would recommend) Ruby's is the place to stay. It's basically at the entrance to the park and there is shuttle service into the park. Ruby's has opened a new section since I was here last that has very level, long, and double wide spaces but no shade. The legacy end of the park has more shade but also has some pads that are terribly sloped and tight. Unless you know of a particular spot in the older end I would request something in the new side, especially if you're in a large class A. The pads are gravel and the hook ups are well placed. The Wi-Fi is bad but we have Verizon and it also has terrible service here. I should mention that the new edition takes you a couple hundred yards from the laundry, pool, store and office, etc., which you pass on the way in and out anyway. There is a grocery store, restaurant, gas station with high flow diesel and space for big rigs, and a bus size wash bay but since you are a captive audience you pay out the nose for everything. It's a very well managed facility but is only one of two parks of the probably 60 I've stayed at where the dump station is right square in the middle of the entrance\exit. Since they haven't thought to paint spots where you park when you register this can create a logjam at the entrance.

We stayed here in the south end of the park, which is the paved "upscale" section. The pads were long and level and could hold a 45-footer with trailer. We were in a pull-through and the problem with the pull-throughs is that they face dead red west which means your windshield is going to be blazing in the summer. Some of the pads have pergolas and some don't, so ask when you sign in or make reservations. Since a number of the sites are privately owned you may be in one that has a home next to it. If you are, don't pull forward as much as you ordinarily would because if you remain towards the back you pick up shade a lot quicker in the evening. A very quiet park, well maintained with a great swimming pool. Wi-Fi was better than average. You're on the north edge of town so you don't have to cut through town to get to the parks.

This maybe one of the most scenic parks we've ever stayed in. It's right in the heart of one of the mesas that are part of Monumental Valley. It also has the BEST WIFI network of any park we've ever stayed in. There is a large grocery store close as well as a gas station that has diesel and can accommodate any size motor coach. There is a pool, laundry, convenience store as part of the office. You are about 4 miles from the loop that is the major tourist attraction of the Valley. There is also a good restaurant about a mile from the RV park and the gas station has pizza and fast food. The bad news: the pad sites are not level so bring some leveling blocks or ramps and most of the rigs I saw needed an extension for black water. It is also a very tight park. I was in slot 48 in a 40' motor coach and I needed to wait until the sites directly across left in morning to be able to pull out.

Date of Stay:

The pull throughs at this park are crescent shaped and are very tight for a 40' coach like mine. There are also some other very tight turns in the park for a 40'er. Somebody longer may have troubles. If you have a towed, they advise disconnecting in the day use area and then going to your site. You can hook up in an area by the dump station on the way out. The park is very clean and extremely well maintained including showers & rest rooms. You get water and 30 amp but have to use the dump station for black water. Very quiet park with great stands of second growth trees.

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.
