Beaver KOA

Beaver, Utah

Date of Stay:

Agree with previous review. This is a gem in the rough. Beautiful little park. Well maintained. Sites were assigned to give privacy. Some parks assign beside each other even though there are plenty of empty spaces. Host was very friendly and helpful. Nice grassy area to walk our small dog. A large dog run to turn them loose, but no grass there. Still suitable. Saw a lot of activities, i.e. ping pong, snake toss, play ground. Easy in and easy out. Somewhat off of the highway, but then no highway noise. Wifi is excellent! Cable excellent with aprx 60 channels.

This is a very popular park. Suggest making reservation. As mentioned before, sites are somewhat unlevel. Saw some rigs with their front or rear wheels off of the ground depending on which way they were facing. Really think $2 a night for a dog is a little ridiculous. Not sure what this charge is for. The clean up bags at the dog park can't cost that much. Laundry was clean and reasonable. $1.25 to wash, $1.50 for 55 min drying. There are 2 laundry facilities. One by the office with 6 washers and dryers. However, there is no place to park, if you are carrying a large load. The facility near the rear of the park has two 2 washers and dryers. Obviously the 5 1/2 MPH does not apply to the the employees. Observed all of them doing at least 15 MPH on their little carts, even the person guiding people to their sites. Bad example.

OK park. Our site was on on incline, so was not able to get completely level. Previous reviewer had mentioned a hill. We did not encounter any hill entering or leaving. All utilities worked well. Wi-Fi was okay. Convenient access to the highway.

Very nice park, with great hosts. Sites are concrete and well spaced with grass between. Our space was slightly unlevel, but was able to get level. Even though Gateway is not on the base proper, it is very convenient to the commissary and BX. WalMart and Sam's Club are a short distance. Wi-Fi was somewhat iffy, even though we were close to the antenna. Yes, there is some noise from the base, but that is the sound of freedom. My only complaint. They do not accept reservations and there is no contact number to find out if there are spaces available. The number for Outdoor Recreation, you only reach a recording. It would be quite frustrating to drive almost 8 miles off of I-15 to find out the is "no room at the inn". We were in luck and they had space, but did see numerous RVs have to turn around and leave.

Very nice quiet park. Very convenient to Glacier NP. Sites were mostly level, easy to get in and out of. Electric, water and Wifi all worked well. All sites worked well with rooftop satellite. No cable, but were able to get quite a few channels over air.

Very nice campground, with very helpful and friendly host. The row with spaces 25-30, the spaces are somewhat close, but okay. Other rows a bit more space. Laundry was great. 75 cents to wash and 50 cents per 30 min to dry. A little crowded, but tolerable. Wifi tended to be spotty. Worked good at times, slow at others, or just get kicked off.

Agree with previous reviews. This is one of the most beautiful parks we have stayed in. The owners were fantastic. Very friendly and helpful. The sites were level with grass in between. Wifi was excellent. When we made our reservation, owner asked if we had rooftop satellite (we do) and which company. That is the first time we've have been asked and that is very helpful. We were given a space to accommodate. We could only spend one night, but wish it could have been longer. Owner said that 92% of their business is returns. I believe it.

Agree with previous review regarding lady in the office. A real put off. Felt like apologizing for bothering her. Was told to pick a spot. Was NOT told that not all spots were 50 amps, which we require. When called the office regarding this, was told to just go to each space and look to see which are 50 amps. Luckily we have a toad. Discovered only a few spaces are 50 amps. It would appear there isn't anyone to enforce rules, i.e. pets on leashes and pool rules. Wifi only works if you are close to the clubhouse. Our space was close and the Wifi worked well. Spaces close to the clubhouse are not level. Not sure about other carriers, but our Verizon was very spotty. Do not go by GPS coordinates. Thank goodness for maps on our tablet. GPS would have had us in a field. On SmartPhones or tablets, O'Sullivan Sportsman Resort leads you right there. Should mention we picked this campground as it had the best rating for the area and we had reservations for a tour at Hanford Reach National Monument. We will NOT come back.

Sites were very close together. We were given a site next to a trailer and each with our slides out nearly touched. WiFi was excellent. Cable was good on higher channels, but snowy on lower channels. Had very nice clean pool, although didn't get a chance to use it.

Pros: Very nice park. Friendly staff. Sites are somewhat close, however a hedge between them, makes for mostly private. Cons: Our site #50 and ones near us were quite unlevel. We chose not to be completely level as our front wheels would have been completely off of the ground as the rigs near us were. Wi-Fi, although says it is free, is through TengoInternet and only 1 hour per 24 hr period is free.

This is a beautiful park right on the Columbia River. We were lucky enough to have a space in the front row, but think any of the spaces would give you a view of the river. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely come here again.

This park is probably 95% permanent residents. Spaces are adequate. Power worked fine. WIFI was very slow, even with 4 bars. Was told on brochure a water regulator was required because of high water pressure. With the regulator, pressure was very low. Stayed at this park because it had the highest rating for the Vancouver area. As stated, mostly permanent residents with a lot of clutter. Alright for an overnight stay.

We have stayed here previously. Very nice park with very friendly staff. Power, cable and WIFI all worked great. The water pressure seemed to be rather low. Would like to have some grass for our 4-legged friend, but otherwise a great place. Would have given it a 10. Sites are very level with a lot of space in between. Easy in and out.

This is a small park with mostly permanent residents. It was our second choice after consulting RVPARKREVIEWS.com because first choice was full, however passing by the other park were happy we stayed here. Even with permanent residents, park is mostly clean. Very friendly staff. Sites were very level. Hookups convenient. Space 37 had two large trees that blocked our rooftop satellite, but the cable was more than satisfactory. We would have liked to be able to use our DVR, but our stay was only 3 days, so made do. Spaces 36 & 35 would have worked better, but office said they were taken, although they emptied each morning. Wifi worked well. The water pressure was a little low. We had no problem with 50 amp power.

One of the nicest parks we have stayed in on all of our travels. Sites were very level and spacious. Cable and WIFI worked great. Dog park was somewhat small for large dogs, but was just fine for our little guy. Pool and hot tub were immaculate. We will definitely stay here again.
