This is the most difficult to review RV Park I have run across in over six years of travel. It is by no means a "resort" but staying here has some unique benefits. First the good...yes their are elk present either actually in the park itself or very nearby. There is a pasture full of trail horses adjacent to the park. This provided great entertainment for the grandkids. Roads within the park are mostly gravel and easy to navigate with any size rig. Sites are large and the amount of space between them provides a degree of privacy. Now the not so good...on the one day I visited them, the bathrooms were filthy. Sites are old gravel that needs to be renewed. This made leveling more of a challenge than it needed to be. Many long term residents who seemed to be friendly but some of the rigs were dilapidated at best. Price was high compared to similar parks but this may be the norm for this high cost area. I believe the park has a new owner. With a lot of hard work this park can become a destination but right now it has a way to go. Unless improvements are made I would probably look for a different park in the area.

Park access was a bit difficult due to road construction but if you pay attention to the signage you will find your way. Park is very good for an overnight stop or for visiting the outlet mall. Pool was nice and clean, office staff was friendly and professional. Beyond that there is not much to say. I would stay here again if I need something on the south side of Portland

Stayed here at the start to a holiday weekend, and the campground was very crowded but everyone enjoyed themselves in a quiet and responsible manner. Many trees were recently removed which cuts down on the shade available at some sites. Utilities worked fine although it seemed the dump at my particular site was nearly full and needed to be pumped. All sites are level, and access from the interstate is easy. You can hear some road noise from big rigs crossing the Columbia River bridge but after a few minutes it is not a problem. Will continue to stop here whenever I am in the area.

After five years of RVing this is our very favorite campground. Sites are large and shady and the scenery is great. Utilities all function properly. Campground is divided into an upper and a lower section. All sites appear large enough. The ones in the lower section may be a bit larger, but do not offer the long range view. Plenty of campground staff to look out after things and keep the grounds tidy. Campground host sells wood and ice. Very nice Oregon Trail interpretive center is on the park grounds and you can still see the wagon wheel ruts that define the trail. It often gets windy in the afternoons even after a calm start to the day, so be careful to take in your awnings. We will definitely stay here again.

This was an okay stop for a couple nights, but it seems like budget cuts may have taken their toll on this park. Trash dumpster was left to overflow for two days. Ranger presence was very limited. Mosquitos were a problem which is to be expected this close to a shallow lake. Not everything was negative. All sites were well spaced with plenty of privacy and all utilities worked well. No cable or Wi-Fi was available but we had plenty of on air TV channels. We may or may not stay here again on future visits. It depends on the season and what other options are available.

Although it can be difficult to get a site everyone should try to get a spot at Fruita if visiting the Capitol Reef park. Sites are all non-reservation so one must arrive early in the morning to get a recently vacated site. We stayed in loop C and got our site at 9:30 AM. All sites in all loops were filled before 11:00 AM. We spent a couple nights in town and then came out to Fruita early in the morning to lock up a site. Completely dry camping but we only stayed two nights so not a problem. Many tents were present and because of this the rather short generator hours (two hours morning and evening) are strictly enforced. Fruita is the most centrally located campground if you want to see the sites of Capitol Reef park. We will definitely try to stay here on future visits.

Definitely the best commercial RV park in the Torrey area. Sites are gravel and most are well shaded and some have awesome views of the surrounding red stone cliffs. Park is a bit farther from Capitol Reef park than I had thought (about 13 miles to Fruita) but it is a scenic drive. Office staff is helpful and small store is well stocked. Would stay here again when in the area.

Third time staying at Zion River and once again they met all expectations. Had a premium site on the river and was surprised to see that they now have set up a number of beach chairs and fire pits so we could go out and enjoy the river in the evening. Pool was large, clean, and had adequate shade to avoid the direct sun if desired. Gift shop is very well stocked. Many activities are scheduled throughout each week. We will stay here again on future visits rather than fight the hassle and crowds trying to stay inside of Zion Park.

Rate reflects Passport America. This RV park recently changed hands and the new management has made many improvements. Lots of workers out making the place look neat and seeing to it that everyone is happy. Desk help was very friendly although the two times I visited the office the lone worker seemed overworked being the only one on duty at a very busy time. One past complaint was the near lack of Wi-Fi. This has been corrected and the signal is now strong and fast. They still do not have cable but we could get plenty of channels off of our antenna. The pool is a big draw and it seems that not everyone using the pool were staying at the park. On the weekend the pool was very crowded to the point we got out because it appeared the water may have been getting "stressed" with the large number of people especially young children. The lake seemed cleaner than in years past and we saw plenty of fairly large fish close to shore. All sites are large with adequate space to accommodate large rigs. Shade trees are abundant which is a big plus in this part of Nevada. I had been considering a different RV park in Pahrump for this trip but I am very happy I decided to stay at the "new" Lakeside.

Washoe Lake is our favorite campground in the Reno-Carson City area. Strictly dry camping but there is a dump/fill station at the entrance. Smell of sage is everywhere (nice). Each site has a ramada to provide shelter from the afternoon sun. Most sites are plenty long enough to accommodate large rigs. About half hour drive into Reno if you are into the casino scene. Went to Virginia City and spent a full day visiting the various shops and exploring the wild west grave yard (very interesting epitaphs). Will always stay at Washoe Lake when visiting this area.

Collier is a very nice state park that can provide access to Crater Lake as well as the really neat pioneer museum adjacent to the campground. Only downside is that the interior roads, although neatly paved, are somewhat narrow which makes backing into some sites difficult if vehicles are parked directly across. All sites provide full hookups and are plenty large enough to accommodate large rigs. When we were there this time the park had just opened for the season so it was still quiet with few spaces occupied. We always enjoy staying at Collier and will continue to stay here in the future.

Stayed here two nights at the beginning of a three week trip. Campground is situated about 7 miles from I-5. Some low hanging trees (about 12.5 foot) in the area but nothing that we could not go around. Stayed in loop B where there is minimal shade. If you are after a shady spot loop A is the place to go. Very few spots have sewer hookups so plan to use RV dump at the entrance to the campground. Very nice bicycle path close by. Beyond that, not a lot of things to do in the immediate vicinity but plenty to do within 30 mile radius.

Stayed here two nights on a weekend. Seems like the management has made a number of upgrades including repairing worn asphalt and trimming trees and shrubs. Informal pancake breakfast was provided one morning. Sites are just wide enough to open slides and awning but not much more. Desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely the best option in the Seattle area. Will stay here on future visits to Seattle.

This RV park is okay for an overnight stop. Sites are gravel but reasonably level. Nice mix of shaded and sunny spots. Hot Springs resort is 300 yards away so that is the main draw and since we arrived early in the afternoon we made use of these facilities. Admission to the hot springs pools was $19 for two persons (a bit higher than what was posted at the RV park but worth the money. Very quiet at night and surrounded by ranch land made for a peaceful visit. Will definitely stop here on future trips through the area.

This is my third time staying here and I have never been disappointed. Very quiet especially at night. Starry skies are awesome. Sites were available even on holiday weekend though not all can handle longer rigs. Lots of wildlife nearby. Two bull moose came through campground on second morning. True dry camping with dump and fresh water fill at campground entrance. Generators are allowed during the day on A-C loops. If your visit calls for trips to Jackson this is much more convenient than other park campgrounds. Excellent hiking and bike trails are also nearby. New bike path is currently under construction from town of Jackson to Moose Jct so bicycles will never have to be on the main road. Will definitely stay here on future visits.
