Loved this place....one of the nicest we've ever been. Would give it a 10 except for how expensive it is. Staff is very nice, grounds are spotless, spacious sites with beautiful grass. Great trails for walking dogs behind campground. Easy walk to town. Close to west entrance to YNP. We were there after Labor Day and it was still full. We decided to stay here at this price because it was a very special trip. Would love to stay again but will check out less expensive places next time.

One of the best places we've ever stayed. As other reviewers have noted, sites are huge, level, very easy in-and-out. Lots of space between sites. Gorgeous views of the Wind River Range. Utilities all worked well including wifi. Antenna TV reception was good for a few stations which was surprising considering the distance from the source. Owners are very nice. We will definitely stay again if we return to the area.

As others have mentioned, park needs updating but it's adequate. Opinion will depend on the site and size of door-side neighbor's rig. We were in the outside row next to the running track and had a very small towable next to us so it was more open. Only about 6 feet between pads so if 2 long rigs are next to each other you'll have no side view and it will feel very cramped. Concrete with gravel between sites. Sites are set up alternating door-to-door which gives zero privacy. Very nice office staff. Site was easy to get in and out. Laundry was inexpensive and clean, 4 each washers and dryers. (Dryers were very hot.) Convenient to I-15. Best diesel price in area. Antenna-TV was excellent, did not use their wifi. We would definitely stay again. See my comments about directions.

Like the previous reviewer, our rating is 9 because this campground is great for what it's supposed to be which is an overnight stop. It's just off I-80 on the south side of Exit 314. (GPS can't find it but you can see it from the highway.) Road noise wasn't loud, never heard the train other reviewers mentioned. Site was easy in and out with lots of gravel. Did not have to unhook. Good wifi and TV. Very nice staff. Plenty of room to walk dog. Would definitely stay again.

Nicest park we've ever been in. Wide roads, paved sites, everything clean and neat. Good wifi and TV. Very nice staff. Parking for our dually was very tight. Those with smaller tow vehicles had no trouble. The astro-turf between sites makes everything look perfect but it's a bit difficult for dog owners because dogs are allowed to go potty only in the pet areas. We were 18 sites away from the nearest pet area which was tough on our dog (and us) because we can't walk fast. We would definitely stay again but would ask for a site close to a pet area next time.

Resort? What a joke. Everything the previous two reviewers said was accurate except for the utilities. Our 30-amp power was erratic and so low we had to turn off the AC to run anything else. Our pull-thru was a pull-in/back-out because of the trees. Roads and sites are in desperate need of something to keep the dust down. (Days later our sinuses still haven't recovered.) No place to walk dog that wasn't covered in dust so she tracked it onto the furniture and our feet and shoes were filthy. Wifi didn't work anywhere, even at office. Verizon hotspot didn't work. No cell service but enough to text with. Satellite TV didn't work and park employee couldn't fix it. Sewer hook-up was awful....a 2-foot tube sticking up in air which had to be dismantled in order to dump, then reassembled to leave as it was. Campfires all over the place while Forest Service fire hazard rating was EXTREME. Made us very nervous, especially with no phone. We had to pay for all 3 days months ago when making reservations, probably because they're afraid of cancellations if more accurate reviews are read later. Would NEVER stay here again!

Very nice KOA. Getting in from the road is tight but once on the property it's easy to maneuver a big rig. Our pull-through site was tight to access with a long 5th wheel but we did okay. The rear pet walk area is pitiful, but the front area is okay. Pretty stream and grassy tent areas. Everything is clean and neat. Great wifi and cable TV. Very nice staff. We really appreciated being able to buy diesel right there and not have to look for a fuel station elsewhere. Would definitely stay again.

Easy entry and exit for big rigs. Level gravel sites. Great wifi and TV. Right on the bay with view of the water and lighthouse (over a berm). Very convenient for visiting Redwoods National Park and the many state parks devoted to redwoods. Yes, there's a fog horn but it would only be a problem to those who are super-sensitive to such things. Would definitely stay again.

Great little park. No activities so maybe not good for families but it was exactly what we wanted. Very nice staff. Easy access with big rig. Good place to walk dogs. Wifi and cable worked great. Convenient to town and area state parks. Site was gravel and level. Tip to those with 5th wheels or travel trailers....you need to park at the rear of your camper so pull up far enough to leave parking space. Would definitely stay again.

Park is easy to find with good entry and exit for big rigs. Very nice office staff. Roads are asphalt with paved sites. Sites are tight but with adequate room for awnings if wind ever permits using them. Some sites are better than others. Ours had untrimmed shrubs growing into an already very narrow site, which pushed into our slide but we couldn't move further to the right or we wouldn't have had room to park our truck. No picnic tables. Bring your own table if you need one. WiFi mediocre. Laundry was clean with a lot of machines but the dryers are expensive and don't work well enough to dry anything. We weren't the only people this happened to so it wasn't just us. Would go to a laundromat next time. Good areas to walk dogs. Great to be on the water. Constant barking of sea lions across the water was fun...not loud enough to bother anyone. Would definitely stay again.

Date of Stay:

The price has gone up dramatically from past reviews, and is high for very close sites with hookups on an asphalt parking lot. Sites are all back-in but are easy to get into. Had 50 amp steady power, no problems. Sewer connection worked well. It's open and quiet, convenient to all the things in the area we wanted to see. We'd take this place over crowded commercial campgrounds any day. Would definitely stay again.

Extremely nice park. Lots of permanent residents but everything is beautifully kept. Paved roads, level concrete pads, beautiful grassy strips between sites. East to get in and out with big rigs. Utilities worked well, good wifi. We couldn't make the cable work with our TV but it wasn't necessary because antenna-TV worked so well. Our hot water went out so we had to use their showers which were excellent, clean with plenty of water and heat lamps in every shower stall. Convenient to everything in the area. Explicit instructions about not hanging over the ends of the space were hard to comply with when parking a crewcab dually. There's nothing they can do to fix it without going to a lot of expense and most people don't have super-long trucks. Would have rated it a 10 if the spaces between sites had been wider and the tow vehicle parking situation had been easier. We would definitely stay again.

Disappointed in this park after reading the reviews. Check-in staff was extremely nice, roads were good and easy to navigate, site was level and easy in-and-out. Utilities worked well, but WiFi and antenna-TV were poor. Last 3 or 4 rows on north end had weeds a foot high, looked very unkempt. Very dicey-looking people in tents near showers on our second night would have made us afraid to use the restrooms if we'd needed to. Our hot water went out so we had to use campground's showers, which were appalling. 2 out of 3 didn't work at all and the 3rd was so bad we could hardly get rinsed. Not what one would expect for $40/night. Neighbors left their 2 big aggressive dogs tied outside so we couldn't walk our dog anywhere she could be seen by them or they'd lunge at her (and they broke loose 3 times that we saw). I-5 was noisy on the east, trains were very noisy on the west. Unlike another reviewer who wasn't bothered by the trains, we were. Counted at least 9 in the first few hours we were there. They shook our 5th wheel they were so close and they blew their whistles right when they reached the campground. Lots of permanent rigs so not everyone is bothered by the noise. They can't do anything about the noise but the condition of the showers was inexcusable. We would absolutely not stay here again.

Spaces and roads are tight but we had no trouble with our 38' 5th wheel. Site was very easy to enter and exit. Not much space between sites but the uphill ones are terraced so we were looking over our downhill neighbors instead of right into them. OK place to walk dogs. Antenna TV got only Canadian stations. Saw lots of dishes so satellite must be okay. Owners are struggling with their wifi which is very poor, worked maybe 10% of the time and then so slowly it was nearly useless. Verizon Hotspot worked very well. We would stay again if we could get in same uphill area. Very convenient location for doing the national park. Cape Flattery is a full day trip.

Tough to rate this park. The location on American Lake is beautiful and quiet with shade from huge trees. The view (if you're lucky enough to have one) can be lovely. Nice place to walk dogs (on leash only). The sites are a mix of good to bad. The back row up on the hill has 50 amp, the other sites have 30 amp (although the office person who made our reservation said there was 30 amp only). There were only four 5th wheels in the park which tells us those with 5th wheels probably avoid it. We have a 38' 5th wheel and will not return unless we can get on the back row (C sites) or Site A-1 because the others are just too hard to back into. Most of the other sites are too short for big rigs, but a Class A can just manage to fit if they aren't huge. Our 5th wheel stuck out in the road a little and another 5th wheel toyhauler stuck out at least 5 feet. The A and B row sites are too close together. If you can back your rig close enough to the hook-ups you can either park your car next to your RV or you can use your awning and picnic table. One or the other, not both. We could do neither because our site was so hard to get into we couldn't get right up to the hook-ups. We didn't have enough room on either side to put the picnic table or our truck. Our side view was of an old Class C in poor condition. The sites are a mix of fairly level to very unlevel, all gravel and not kept up well. Rows A and B are like being in a gravel parking lot. If you come in on a weekend you can pay by check or cash and leave it in a dropbox. On weekdays you have to hunt for the office in Bldg 16 which is in the coffee shop/credit union building with no number on it. The laundry is clean with 2 household-size washers and dryers but no coin machine. The primitive campsites are at the opposite end of the campground from the bathrooms, an convenient walk. At $16 per day it was a good deal but not good enough for us to return unless we got a decent site.
