This is our second favorite park on the coast. We camped for three days in two different spaces. Both were paved and level. One had 50 amps and sewer, which we did not use. The other was 30 amp and water. No problems with water or power. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. Showers were clean and the water was hot. Great location --- walk to beach, or a 5 mile drive into Westport. Would have been perfect if half the parks campers didn't burn wet wood.... I would have rated it higher, but there are no amenities or Wi-Fi. Showers cost extra.

This park is in a beautiful setting and I would really like to give it a good rating, but can't. I stayed here since I was fishing the local lakes and didn't want to waste 30 minutes driving back to Soap Lake were there is a real nice private campground. My site was a lot out of level. And, although the showers were clean, the water was cold. Thirty bucks a night for cold showers and no WiFi? No. Any of the private campgrounds in the area is a better bet (and I've stayed in them all).

I've reviewed over a 100 parks. This park was very difficult to rate. The good: excellent location easy walking distance to downtown Winthrop. The park has new owners who did a complete make over. Everything is new: bathrooms, showers, laundry, utility hookups, etc. Except for a gravel access road, the entire park is grass and has a pleasant park like ambiance. The bad: not much is the way of amenities, no pool or hot tub. Tengo internet was dependable but very very slow. The absolute worst thing was the showers: $3 for 4-1/2 minutes. The owner flipped me $3 for a shower when I checked in. Unfortunately, I was in final rinse mode when the time ran out on my shower. It cost me $3 out of my pocket to restart the water (I added $3 to the cost reported in this review). If I want to take another shower in the morning, it will be another $3. Good grief. This is a very nice park that would normally rate an 8 or 9. The shower situation is just plain bad. If you are self contained and don't need showers, this is the park for you.

This is a newer, small park in a semi industrial area easy walking distance from downtown. In fact, the area is better than most RV parks, and pleasantly quiet. Pads and interior roads are paved asphalt. I noticed that everybody in the park used more than one leveling block. The park looks flat but actually has a fair amount of slope. The guy across from us moved to a different spot since he was unable to level his 30 foot class C. We used two lego style blocks on our truck camper. The parks is big rig friendly. Hookups are solid and well located. Although we didn't care for the fresh water hookups. We found the knobs hard to turn, and too close to the pipe to get a grip. The pads are back to back, and "pull-thru" when the park is mostly empty. If the park is full, then your spot is a back in --- not a problem since the roads are wide and unobstructed. The bathrooms and showers were near new and very, very clean --- plenty of hot water. There is a laundry room and rec room that we didn't use. There are no fire pits, a plus for us. With more amenities (pool, hot tub, etc.), this park would be an easy 9 or 10.

Campground is right on the river. Roads and pads are paved. Our rig leveled easy enough with 4 Lego style blocks. Park allows fires and our neighbors kindly shared some of their smoke with us. There is an excellent Nature Center located at the entrance. Walking down to it, we saw an amazing assortment of wildlife: a beaver, muskrat, raccoon, ducks, geese, and osprey. There is a paved bike path that parallels the river right into town. The showers work on push buttons rather than knobs. Since we camped on a cold wet day, we skipped the showers since we couldn't tell if the showers were hot or not. We would camp here again, and did.

This is our second time here. Rated an 8 both times. Last time we had a 38 foot diesel pusher; this time we camped in a small truck camper. The park is right on the Spokane River directly across from Coeur d'Alene. They had comfortable chairs right on the beach for your use and enjoyment. There are no fire pits. I don't think they allow fires. It is an easy 2 mile walk to downtown if you don't mind crossing the Highway 95 bridge. The park's roads are mostly paved. The parking pads are gravel and near level. Each has a little grass and a picnic table. The hookups were reliable and well-situated. We used 4 Lego style leveling blocks to level our rig. The bathrooms and showers are individual units that are near new, and very clean, and in excellent condition --- one the the best bath and showers we have seen in a while. There is a new, fenced, gravel, dog area. WiFi was solid and surprisingly fast. Although the park was next to a highway, traffic noise was more of a rumble than a roar. We would camp here again, and have.

Nice new park. Asphalt roads, level gravel sites with nice picnic tables. The bathrooms and showers were about the nicest I have ever seen and we were full-timers. Most sites line up right on the Clearwater river. The sound of the river all night was a plus. The sound of highway traffic across the river wasn't. Hookups were solid. Wi-Fi was good -- solid but slow which is typical of most RV parks. The park itself is a 10. Unfortunately, there are no amenities and the entrance to it is over rough railroad tracks and thru a seedy industrial area. Unless you are a steelhead fisherman, there isn't much to do in Orofino either.

Hands down, this is the nicest park in the greater Seattle area. Interior roads and sites are paved. Not all the sites are level. It is immaculately maintained. Although the spaces are a little close, trees and shrubs are well located for privacy. Our 50 amp hookups worked flawlessly. There are no real amenities. Free Tengo Internet was limited to an hour a day unless you wanted to buy more time. There is a small fenced dog park on site.

We have camped in every campground in the I-90 corridor from Easton to Ellensburg. This is our favorite. It has paved roads with level gravel sites surrounded by towering pines. It backs up to the Yakima River. Downtown is an easy stroll. 50 amp hookups were flawless. There are no amenities or Wi-Fi, but the bathrooms and showers were spotless. Traffic noise from the interstate is steady 24 hours a day. Also, their are one or two trains a day.

We came here because it got better reviews than most NE Washington campgrounds. It's OK. Has level gravel sites and gravel roads with a few shade trees. It sort of feels like a parking lot though. Other than the golf course, no amenities. The bathrooms were clean, the hookups solid, the WiFi average speed and better than average reliability. It's very quiet. No noise. It's not really a family park. Nothing for kids to do, unless they golf.

Nice park. Interior roads are mostly paved. Some are gravel. Pads are gravel and vary in length quite a bit. Our was dead level. The shade trees are too small to offer much shade. 50A hookups were solid. Wi-Fi was fast, free, and reliable, even with the park full. There is kayaking right at the park. The centennial bike trail is just across the bridge. Downtown Coeur d'Alene is minutes a way. Great location. Not much in the way of amenities.

Nice park. Interior roads are paved. Sites are level gravel with shade trees and grass islands. 50A full hookups were flawless. Wi-Fi was faster and more 100% reliable over 8 days. Pool, hot tub, showers and bathrooms were spotless. I generally don't care for KOA's and tend to avoid them. But this one is nice. The location is great. All the shopping you want is across the street. There are plenty of places to walk on sidewalks or ride your bike. It even has 3 fenced dog parks right in the KOA.

This park was nicer than I expected based on the other reviews. It is a very quiet, in town location that backs up to the Clark Fork River. Downtown is 3 blocks away. The sites are level and partially shaded. Sites away from the river are full hookups and 30A. Sites on the river are water and 50A, but no sewer. The railroad tracks are close but we heard only one train in 3 days. The Wi-Fi worked better than average. The only thing we didn't care for was the insecticide spraying. Four times a day a truck would drive through the park and fog for mosquitoes. We would rather have the bug than the poison. Overall, this is a nice spot from which to fish or visit Butte or Helena.

We checked out all 3 Bozeman RV parks. We thought this one is the nicest. There is highway noise and some train noise. We weren't bothered by either. Sites and roads are gravel with limited grass and shade trees. Views are good. The pads are all out of level. We used leveling blocks. The 50A hookups were solid. Wi-fi was strong, reliable, and very slow. Showers were spotless and very hot. Downtown Bozeman (and a fenced dog park) are 4 miles west at the next interstate off ramp.

This small park is in a grassy area behind the motel. We rank it high for it had quiet downtown location and mountain views. Lion's park, shops, and restaurants are an easy stroll away. Pads are level gravel with some shade trees. The spaces tend to be short and fairly close together. Only 3 of the 10 could accommodate a big rig. The hookups were solid. The wifi was average speed and below average reliability (due to the distance from the transmitter?). This is an adult park since there are no amenities and nothing for kids to do.
