I arrived a day early and was put in Section D after asking if there was availability in Section C where my reservations for the next day started. I was to find out the next day that the very site I reserved for the next night was empty on the night I was placed in "D". In speaking to other campers, it's not unusual for reservations not to know which sites become vacant. It might be because of the late check out time. Unlike other campgrounds I've camped in, you don't put your name/date of departure on the pole, you keep it in your vehicle. Section D was very family oriented. There were kids riding bikes everywhere and every which way without helmets, which surprised me. I might have enjoyed it had I had little kids with me, but they would have been wearing helmets and limitations as to where they rode. I moved to Section C the following day--much nicer sites and beautiful views of the lake. My site was long and difficult to get into as many of them are, but level once I got settled. I enjoyed the rest of my stay. I could not get cell service in Section D, but it was very clear in Section C. One employee (volunteer?) was a very nice gentleman in the camp store where I purchased wood. He was a lovely man. I would only camp here, again, in order to join friends if they chose to camp here.

We were visiting friends so this RV park was convenient. We had beautiful weather, but had we had rain I would have been happy to have the cement pads. We stayed for a week. Checking in, one lady was a little reluctant to give me the long, big rig pull through (I have a small trailer) but another lady in the office said it was okay. I could have put another truck and trailer on the site with room to spare. The park is convenient to everything. For a unique dining experience try Lamberts Cafe'-Home of the Throwed Rolls. There's a nice Coleman discount place nearby and we also passed a Camping World on the way in. The state park is great for biking. Bathrooms were self contained and clean as a whistle. We liked the ones over near the dog walk. There are other bath houses, and they clean them at different times so there are showers always available. For an "urban" RV park, this was just the ticket we needed. Would stay here again.

What a difference a day makes. This park would have gotten a 10 if it weren't for the highway noise. Actually, I don't think you'd hear it toward the back of the park. This park is immaculate. The owners were very friendly, and the showers were as immaculate as any I've ever seen. The water pressure is strong and a welcomed relief after the dive I stayed in last night for a higher rate. The grounds are kept very nicely, there's a dog run and the owner said I could walk my dog anywhere as long as I cleaned up after him. I have Verizon Broadband so I have internet, and antenna TV is clear as a bell. This is a great location for me as I have a friend in St. Louis who will be visiting, tomorrow. The owner said they could park in any empty space. I paid with a personal check; no identification required. He would have accepted cash-there's an ATM nearby. I prefer to pay with a credit card, but I think he probably keeps his rates down by not using them so I didn't mind writing the check.

I would drive three hours to avoid this park. I would have left after checking in had I known it was going to be so bad and if I didn't mind driving at night. I tried three times to take a shower and each time there were people waiting to get in. When it was finally free, I took one look and couldn't bring myself to shower. Filthy. The owner was cordial and showed me to my site. I was fortunate that it didn't rain because right outside my door was deep mud--I would have sunk above my ankles. I had asked for a pull through when I called, but he said they reserved those for big rigs that pull in over night. I can understand his reasoning; however, I don't expect an inferior, dirty, unlevel site because I have a small trailer. The park (if you want to call it that) is on a busy street. The only good thing for me was that there is a KFC right across the 5 lane highway, and I was able to get something to eat without unhooking.

Even with older bathrooms and no cable TV, I give this park a 10 because of the friendly people and the view. I've never had a better view in any campground. Food in the restaurant right on premise was delicious. I ate dinner, lunch, and breakfast and everything was wonderful. I've never had better sausage and eggs in my life. And, don't miss the pie. I ran into a problem with my propane hose and three of the gentleman who either work or own the place didn't hesitate a second to fix it for me. My back up skills are less than acceptable. They didn't hesitate when I told them. The owner, I think, came and backed it right in for me. Great place, great people, and it spread to the guests. I met several who were exceptionally nice. Happiness is contagious, I guess.

First, don't rely on your GPS to get you here. I came from Stanley, went through town and got lost. Don't pay any attention to Riverfront or Riverside. Just remember as soon as you go through town, they'll be a small bridge, make an immediate right onto 93 and the campground will be a little ways down on your right. After I convinced the owner I was a responsible dog owner, I enjoyed my stay. The bathrooms are small and old, but they are immaculate as is the park. Look for the rabbits. While here, if you want to do an afternoon drive, go up to Wisdom, MT. Lovely drive. I used a water regulator so had no problem with pressure. I loved the deck over the river.

This park is no longer a KOA. People in the office were very friendly and helpful. Garbage pick up at site. Signage is in the process of being changed. I paid a weekly rate, but I could reduce that because the laundry was free AND clean. I saved $20. by doing my laundry here. Very close to town and Payette Lake. Beautiful scenery in the area. I took the ride to Warren which was a very nice ride: moose country. Very family friendly: kids enjoying the indoor pool, but the park was not over run by kids. Nice trail for the pups behind the lodge. Private and immaculate baths. Lodge is beautiful with a very nice patio. I was close to the lodge so had excellent WiFi. The early morning engine noise of fire watcher plane might bother some, but it didn't bother me at all. I only happened to hear it because I'm an early riser.

I can't say enough about this park except that I wanted to sign up for another week, but they have a group coming in and they will be full. Someone else knows about this sweet spot. The people in the office couldn't be nicer. The park is immaculate. It's dog friendly with a walk and a big field to let dog's run, though I didn't see any when I took my lab out there. It's minutes to town. You'll never find cleaner bathrooms. They are self-contained rooms with the largest shower I've ever been in, plenty of room to get dressed. Large game room, again, immaculate. I believe they are adding more sites. It's right off 95, but no loud traffic noise. Quiet and pretty. I highly recommend this park, and thank the owners and employees for making my stay so pleasant.

Very small site and not level. The WiFi didn't work. Pass this one by. Wouldn't come back, again.

This is a great little park. Friendly people. Wonderful showers! (I often wonder why some campgrounds don't realize that I will use less water if the water pressure is as strong as this one, was rather than a trickle that takes forever to rinse out shampoo.) They are unisex bathrooms. They were immaculate as was the laundry which had five machines. The grass at the sites was thick and lush, and there were two dog runs. The one I used was huge and a great place for my lab. I didn't spend much time here, as I was doing a lot of sight-seeing, but I really enjoyed the park when I was here. It's obvious that the owners work hard to have a nice park. It's conveniently located, too. I'd stay here, again, in a NY minute.

This was a big disappointment to me. I made reservations in the a.m. I had a CampClub membership which listed it. I stayed here years ago in a motorhome with my husband. It was a parking place, but very enjoyable, and I was looking forward to the stay I got here this time and was told that because of the heat in the valley, they were filling up fast. The woman who checked me in said that CampClub had only approved some of the park? "That's okay, though, because I have room for you in the old section." It was not the "old" section that we camped in 7 years ago, I think that "old" section was the new section with large motorhomes: not full. I finally found my spot across the street in a dirty area. No WiFi but could buy it for 5 dollars. The showers were fairly clean, but the "bathrooms" were the blue construction porta potties. I'm shocked at the other reviews as they are no where near my experience. It may have been because I have a small trailer. It's only two years old, but I got to stay where all the full-time residents are, next to someone in a very old trailer who hung wash.

I was tired after driving north on US-1. We felt the location of this campground was good, and the Good Sam rating was good. Here's my analysis: The park, itself, is pretty.The woman in the office was rude and sarcastic. They don't take credit cards--only cash or check. I had to go back up to ask about the wifi; she really didn't want to give me the information I needed to get online and said try it up here, then you'll know if it's your computer. I managed to get on only after she gave me the flier with the correct information. They charged $1 per night for my dog. (That's a suspicious charge, in my mind.) I was told that the pull through with full hookups was not very private so that was upfront honesty. It's near the bathrooms and is level. We're going to sight see and not planning to spend very much time in the park so that didn't matter. The topper after $43 per night, a rude front office, is the pay shower; 50 cents for 3 minutes, 75 cents for 4 minutes and so on. No change machine available. What a rip off. Find another park. I should have done my homework, so I blame myself, but I didn't expect to be on this route. Plans changed. Maybe it will steer someone away to a better deal.

If you're looking for a quiet, rustic and beautiful park, and are in a tent or a small RV, this place is beautiful and a place to "get away from it all". I would have stayed longer, but had to be somewhere else. It's pricey, but that's because of the river. Troublemaker Rapid is right here and it's fun to watch the rafters and kayakers go down. I think the outfitters are located right in the park. They charge for dogs, but other campgrounds in the area won't even take them. One of my favorite things about the park was the girl who ran the office. I'm not sure if she's an owner, but you'll never find a more personable lady. She loves dogs and is a real people person. Ready, willing, and able to help with anything. I gave it a 10 because it is everything a quiet, natural campground should be.

I'll repeat what the other reviewers said. Convenience is what I'm paying for. Because I have a small trailer, I'm parked with no more than five feet on either side of me in a single space with my truck parked in front, but paying the same $50 plus tax as the larger sites. Fortunately, the people who live here are very nice, and I'm gone most of the time. I don't watch much TV, but whats here is appears to be good, and the WiFi is good for the most part. The woman in the office was very pleasant. Her husband backed my trailer in for me: I could never have done it. Again, a very pleasant gentleman. I have rated the park as a 7 because I expected a parking lot, and the convenient location warrants it. It's a hard place to find: use these coordinates on your GPS. N37.94175 / W122.51439 (it's my site, but I'm right near the street so it might help you locate the place), rather than the address. There's a lot of traffic and short streets to navigate. Aside from the short walk to the Ferry, there's a neat trail called the Bay Trail. Great walk.

I gave this park a good rating because it was everything I needed. It is clean, level, and has cable. Though I haven't used their wi-fi (I have broadband access), they claim to have it. I could stay hooked up for a quick get-away, tomorrow. Friendly lady in the RV office. The only complaint (for the type of park this is--a one nighter), there wasn't a place I felt safe walking my dog. I saw quite a few loose dogs without collars in the town as I drove through and a little dog came after us. Barking dogs from surrounding houses made me nervous--they sounded big and I wasn't sure if they were confined or not. Other than that, I was grateful for this port in the storm.
