If RVing over the Duffy Lake road en route to Pemberton and Whistler, Lilloet is a good strategic overnight to gather your wits about you before tackling the winding, switch-backed challenging road with some awesome hills. The owners of Retasket Lodge have attempted to make this small RV park attached to the motel appealing. The complex is surrounded by a chain link fence for good reason. The motel is located adjacent to marginal dwellings. While we were there, a group of rowdy young males were engaged in a booze/drug fest. It was unsettling to know they were so close. Efforts have been made to make a communal outdoor patio with a view. However, the entire place looks to be in a sad state of disrepair. Due mainly to the restlessness of the youth in this depressed community, we will select other options in future.

Astounds me this park receives high ratings. Roads are not paved. No cable. Mostly semi-permanent residents. Pluses: nice mini golf, good hookups. Not a park I would spend more than 1 night, although reserved for 2 because of inflated ratings.

Date of Stay:

Back after several years. Park has expanded with upgraded washrooms. Small and compact with friendly hosts. Very nice municipal park close to downtown Armstrong. It has always been a pleasure to visit this park and it has just gotten better.

We have not used this park for several yrs and it seems to have list its pristine look. Still very handy to visit Kelowna and hook ups in good shape. Park had just opened when last we visited and perhaps the owners have lost their initial enthusiasm. Still in all, fine park to use.

Iooking for something different? Black Diamond ranch is unlike your run of the mill RV park. If you like quaint and charming, hoses, pigs, chickens and llamas, you have come to the right place. You will not be expected to keep your dog tethered, but if he harasses the livestock he will be taken to task by the resident border collies. You are greeted by the charming owner. Coldwater creek runs by your window. Numerous trails abound. You are invited to tour the ranch and befriend the residents. Good 30 amp power and water, but come in with empty tanks. We loved it and will be back. Don't be put off by the "rustic" entrance.

Avoid this park. No staff available most of the time. They shut the water off while we were there with no warning. Off for about two hours at a time when showers and cooking are needed. Cable TV is Comcast, which involves a plastic bag full of electronic gear you must adapt to your rig. It takes forever and in the end does not work. Pay phone is broken. Internet is TengoInternet; need we say more? The most inefficient complex system known to man. Spent most of the 3 days trying to hook up TV and get Internet. The park is in a nice setting, but it has been allowed to deteriorate. We will never stay here again.

This park is a 10 for dog owners and a 9 for non dog owners, probably because of the number of dogs in the RV park. Why? Because adjacent to the RV facilities is one of the nicest, best equipped enclosed dog park we have encountered. It is at least an acre in size with doggy toys and a perimeter walking path. RV spaces are all large with lots of green space between sites. Hookups are some of the best with great WiFi and cable TV. Never mind the dog park, if someone was designing the perfect RV facility, this could be a model. Thank you Lane County.

Perfect stop for the Florence area. Excellent security with gated entrance, great hookups, compentent staff and nice landscaping. We would return here.

One of our favorite stops on the way down the Oregon coast. Park is well set up with excellent hookups, sites are large and park is easy to manipulate a rig through. It is always clean and staff are competent. Handy to everything in Newport, and of course the Rogue River brewery and pub is within walking distance and worth a visit. Great view of the Newport bridge from every site.

Very orderly, extremely neat with great hookups. Enclosed dog walk with lots of room right in the park. Management is capable and friendly. My only advice would be make sure your trailer is parked so your door and awning is leeward, or away from the ocean. Wind off the water is constant. We could not sit in front of our unit or have our awning out as we faced the ocean. Others parked away from the ocean were much more sheltered. We would definitely come back to this park.

Nice neat quiet park located just out of the original port of Westport. Community generally reflects the downturn in the economy with closed businesses. Park sites are easily accessed and flat with good hookups. WiFi is marginal and impossible to use during peak hours. TV stations are limited, but there is cable. Probably the best place to book in Westport. There are other RV parks, but they are marginal.

This park is under new ownership and it shows! Sites are cleaner and more level, hookups have been updated and landscaping improved. It has always been a good stop and the new owners have enhanced the park. This is reflected by a higher score than I have given in the past.

Recent evaluations of this park are too high, in my opinion. First off, sites range from AA (absolutely awful) to A (acceptable). Always ask to pick out your site before being assigned one. Much of the park taken is up by permanent residents, as is the case in so many American parks, probably due to the depressed economy. Traffic on the road entering the park is so intense it is literally impossible to make the left turn necessary to get to the Bainbridge Ferry to Seattle. They advertise cable, but when you register you receive a complicated package of electronic equipment including a modem. My TV connections were difficult to access so forewent cable and used our antenna which was limited. While we were there, four police cars roared into the park to arrest a subject in a site next to us. Lots of sadness seen in trailers permanently located there. Management were accommodating, but do not think we will be back.

We love this rv park! It is a true resort being next to Perrigrine Lake. When we called for reservations, they only had an overflow site, but assured us they would upgrade us if possible. Upon our arrival we discovered we had been placed in a full hookup site, one of the nicest in the park. In the evening, you can stroll down to the lake and at dusk you can watch tiny bats darting through the fading light, gobbling up mosquitoes. At one point there was a barking dog tied up to a trailer. We registered a complaint after an hour. Management responded immediately and the problem was resolved. Most occupants are here for extended vacations, but brief stays are also welcome. Great hookups, wifi, no tv, very clean.

Park is located adjacent to the Colville City Fairgrounds. Sites are basic, but have the basic amenities. Located right in town, so shops and conveniences within walking distance. We arrived just prior to the Colville Fair and the local junior riding club were in the outdoor menage doing their routines. Great to see young people demonstrating their riding prowess and their beautiful horses. Apparently they are there most nites. We were fortunate to arrive before the fair the following week when every available rv site is taken. Recommend as an overnight stop.
