Older facility that they are trying to keep up. We camped on the road side and another good weed whipping would not hurt. Sites are narrow especially with the slope from the next site. The flies were terrible during our stay so I deployed the screen room tent. It would not sit level due to the slope and this thing covers a picnic table plus a chair. Sites are not level. I used 4 of those yellow blocks on one side to get it close to level. All the remaining hookups were good. A fire ring is at each site with a picnic table. The road side of the campground is terraced and can get steep when you exit with a rig. Road noise did not really bother us. Quieted down at night. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The back of the campground looked the best. Tenters have it nice. Horseshoes and playset were always busy. A nice community cooking area also available. Restrooms were clean during out stay as well as the showers. The pool was cold even though staff said it was heated. Wi-Fi was unreliable and slow to the point people asked around if anyone could get on. The only answer staff gave was use the outdoor signal (which we were). I loved the view on the back side of the campground of the port-a-pottie storage area. Nothing the owners can do anything about. Angels camp looked like a nice little town. We visited Big Trees and Moaning Cave easily from the campground. We had a little trouble finding the place so if you do and you come from HWY 4, it is a couple hundred yards on the left side of the road just past the Texaco station on the right side of HWY 49. A little confusing, but you will get it. I would stay here again if needed. I would like to see the campground kept up a little better on the road side.

We stayed here two nights. This is another very kid friendly KOA. The staff is friendly, but our check in person had no clue the correct angle needed to get us in our space. She sent us the wrong way down the road to back in to our space. Oh well, I can deal with that. The closer you are to the front of the campground, the noisier it is. I suggest you stay at least ten sites from the spray park and petting zoo. The spray park turns on at noon and goes till almost dusk. All you can hear is water hitting cement. The petting zoo can be a little odorific. The pool was nice, a little cold, but that was probably due to the weather. The spa water was brown during our stay, and I had the family stay out of that mess. The ice cream social leading the way into the family program each night was nice. The movie each night is outdoors, so bring a chair and a blanket. The roads in the campground are dirt with some gravel. Can get a little dusty with vehicle and bike traffic. Sites do not have sewer (they do offer a honey wagon to come to your site). Sites are good size with a small cement patio that was nice to have since most of the site was rather large crushed granite (hard on the feet). A fire ring is also included. The road to the coast was next to the campground along with train tracks. While we were there only the Skunk Train came through. Truck traffic on the road was a little noisy during the day. We did not use the Frisbee golf, mini golf, and playsets, but they looked good and were very well used. This campground gets busy especially with kids. I am glad they have lots of stuff for them to do. Willits is about five minutes away with a small town atmosphere. We really enjoyed this used bookstore in town. I would stay here again if I were in the area. I would be picky about the site they put me in. Happy travels and be safe out there.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were lucky and were placed in the biggest/nicest spot they had. So many redwoods in our space we could not tell what time it was (not good if you are trying to leave early). We stayed here three nights and would have stayed longer if we could. Other spaces are more open to no trees but grass. Ask owner for what experience you are looking for. The owners are extremely nice and full of local info (they will show you what to do in the area 20 miles north and south). Restrooms/Shower area very clean and they have lots of hooks in the showers. Laundry room nice, but a little priced a little higher than some campgrounds. Nice little mini golf under renovation now. Nice little rec room with games to play. We walked their little trail behind the campground and it was nice. Some rigs here looked full time, but not dirty. Tent area covered by redwoods for the most part. Nice little store with food and gifts. Wi-Fi worked well, but you must ask for code and get a lecture on use. Only main beef is the price of extra people over the standard two. A little steep ($4 a day) with the only excuse of extra water usage for the site. My girls do not use that much water. I would stay here again especially looking at other campgrounds in the area. The campgrounds along the 101 were wide open and the others along the Klamath looked nice, but a tight road to get to them. Even though this is along the 101, the traffic noise did not really bother us and it died off at night. Trees of Mystery, Prairie Creek, Crescent City all within reasonable drive. Give this place a chance if you are in the area. Happy travels and be safe.

This place is small and so are the sites. My wife almost hit her head on the neighbors slide getting out of our trailer. Lots of full timers here that fill this park up. We got the last site here when we checked in. Sites are gravel with full hookups. Owner lives on-site and is extremely nice and helpful. Everything is clean here and even though I did not use the restrooms, I suspect they are also clean. The owners daughter delivered a nice little basket of goodies to the trailer. Nice touch. This is a lazy little town with the southern section on the water. We visited the lighthouse named after this town. Not much else to do here. If I needed to, I would stay here again. Just not a lot of room and things for the kids to do. Happy travels and be safe out there.

If you need a place to stay in the area, do not pass this place up. It is not much, but it is clean and quiet. Some road noise from 101, but it slows at night. Host/Staff very nice and informative. Sites are a good size, with grass, table, fire ring, and I was able to choose mine. I walked the place in 5 minutes and found a space that was good for our needs. We had full hookups and an easy exit. Some full timers here, clean and quiet. Looked like some small cabins in the back of the campground. Restrooms/Shower looked clean, in need of some updating. Looked like you could have some view of the ocean, but too foggy during our stay. We went to the beach and walked around. Did have to cross the 101 with the family (we looked like the immigration sign down by San Diego) to get to the beach. Looked like great tide pooling in the morning. We enjoyed our one night here and would stay again if we were in the area. Just remember not too many things to do here except for the beach and activities you would have to travel to. Almost forgot, no credit cards taken here.

This place is huge. There is so much stuff for the family to do here. Our kids did not want to leave. We did crafts, jumping pillow, movie, made slugs on the fire: and we did not come close to doing everything. We were lucky and were upgraded to a deluxe site (I think it was because I requested on-line a back-in , full hook site). Our site was on a corner and big. It was a back in with full hook-ups and fit a tent easily. I would suggest these sites to anyone. The pull through sites were good, but the closer you were to the activity area, the noisier it was. The staff was nice enough and there were lots of them. While checking in, I had to pay an extra $5 for some unknown reason (even after registering on-line), but I guess they need the money. The only gripe I have about the site is that the employees do not pick up after the last person leaves. In fact, I do not think I saw a single employee pick up a piece of trash on the ground. They come by the sites to pick up trash bags, but do not pick trash. A definite down grade for this campground. The pool is very crowded and indoors. I think they sell time to outsiders to the pool. The smell of chlorine (or chlorimines) smacks you in the face at the door. I only used the restroom once while here and it was so dirty, I almost turned around, but I had to go. No toilet paper and paper on the ground (back to my earlier comment). The showers were getting hammered due to the number of people staying the weekend. We rode our bikes to Fort Stevens and there is an easy drive to Astoria and Fort Cladsop. Make sure if you go to the movie at night you bring a comfy chair to sit in. They only provide picnic benches. The daily free pancake breakfast was good. There are some sides to purchase to make a complete breakfast. Besides my housekeeping issues with them, I would return here to camp. We enjoyed our shaded, upgraded site and all of the activities. Just remember, this place is for the kids and there are lots of kids staying here. Happy travels and be safe out there.

Overall, not a bad place to stay. The potential here for a great campground is here, but the owners just do not have the ability to make it great. As stated on the site, the campground check-in is at the gas station in the front and the campground is around back. I think the same owners run the American Heritage Campground. The RV sites at this campground are buddy sites for the most part. They are close and you better be friendly due to your neighbor being so close. Some back in sites are single and I would prefer them to the buddy. The campground was quiet except for a few planes flying so some small airport(?). Hookups were easy and the sites are tree covered for the most part. The sites are also fairly level, dirt or grass covered. The lady at check-in was very nice and helpful. She walked us to the site which is the reason they can be difficult to get ahold of on the phone. The pool was still closed at this time due to lack of money to heat it. It was a little cold when we stayed, so that would have been needed. The lady at the front desk almost seemed to offer the American Heritage pool to me when we checked in, but did not really push the offer. The tent camping on the back loop looked awsome. I think they had it best when it came to sites (their restrooms were closed, inserted were a couple of port a potties). We rode bikes a lot here around the campground and my kids played on the playset. It was easy access from and to I-5 and far enough away that you could not hear it. It was however a little strange going through the farm areas to get there. Just up the freeway is a major box food store, a regular grocery store, and a new Walmart going in. I would stay here again if needed, but would pick my site before driving around to the actual campground. Some corners could be a little tight for really big rigs. I think next time I would choose a back in site or the buddy site I had with the big dirt pile in the buddy portion of the site. Be safe out there and enjoy.

This place is an old KOA and not much has changed. Updates are needed badly. The best thing about this place was the playground and field area for the kids, and that was not much. Some of the wood play structures looked unsafe (rated by my kids). The basketball area was a bent rim in the middle of a dirt area. Not much freeway noise even though it is close to I-5. The sites are cramped, but long. I did not have to unhook. Your neighbors sewer line is close to your door. There are a lot of full timers here, some are good and others need to go. I especially liked the trailer with all of the cats. The restrooms were okay to use, but the showers were not the greatest. If you need a place to stay for the night so you can hook and book the next morning, this place will do. The RV resort on the same offramp would probably be a better place to stay, but the Interstate traffic noise would be much worse. I normally do not rate Wi-Fi, but it was slow. If you can get away with water and power for your stay, I would secure one of those sites so you are not packed in to one area like we were. If I had to, I would stay here again, but I would research the area better for a nicer campground. Be safe and happy travels.

This was our second stay here. We will keep returning here as long as we are passing through the area. Sites are big, lots of activities for the kids, access to the river, and store within walking distance. We used this campground as a base to Lassen NP as well. You have access to a computer if needed in, and the best part for this hot area, a big room with AC. The pool was refreshing this time due to cooler weather, but when it gets hot, the pool is also hot. The only beef I have with this place, is that they charge to use one of their BBQ's and there is no place to make smores. They do not allow food at their fire pits. Oh well, I have my own BBQ and it is usually too hot to enjoy a fire. The walk along the river was nice. We also biked the same area. We will return again when traveling I-5 through California. I hope they keep the prices reasonable since they have gone up from last year. It was nice to see more people using this resort. However, more full timers also, but they are clean full timers. Happy and safe travels to all of you out there.

We had a great stay as normal. I feel sorry for the August reviewer that did not have a good stay. I have never experienced that type of behavior here from the staff. Check in was good except for the computer crashing. Sites were in good order and clean as usual. Lots of campers for the Labor Day weekend. Crowded, but everyone behaved and had a good time. The owners and staff put on several family oriented games and events. Paper delivery was a nice touch. I could not tell you about Wi-Fi due to the fact we camp and not surf the internet. The do have computers for camper use if needed. Pool was good, but heavy use made it difficult to keep crystal clear. Restrooms and showers were clean. We will return to camp here again.

This place has the potential to be great. GPS may take you through the Food Maxx parking lot, but you can still get here from any street that goes around the shopping center. Check-in was no problem and the staff friendly. Everything was clean and well maintained. Sites big and long. Did not have to unhook in the pull-through site. The only thing that keeps this place from being full of campers, is the heat. Boy is it hot in Red Bluff in the summer. The place was about a quarter full by the close of the gates (yes they do close the front gate at night 8PM). Pool was nice but was a little hammered from the heat and use. Clubhouse was nice with a TV and computer to use in the cool air conditioning. Restroom and conference building by the river was clean and cool. Gas fire pits next to this building and the pool, but not appealing at 106. I could not really suggest the riverfront sites or the fountain sites. Not really worth the extra money. Lots of stuff for the kids to do here, just too hot. Store was stocked with what you needed, or a short walk to the Food Maxx and restaurants. The shopping area was not doing that well, but had the essentials. We would stay here again if in the area. I would like to try the resort when it is cooler.

Nice place to stay on the Rogue. Lady at check-in was nice, but I think I disrupted her TV time or something. This place is small and tight to get around. Most sites you had to be directed into by a competent employee (which they had). We saw every size make it into their site. The river front site was worth the extra money. Resort was clean, but the parking pads need work. They were still fairly level, but cracked. Sites were long, a little close together with grass. Trees provided shade. All hook-ups working. Laundry was in good shape. The river was fun for the kids (and adults) with river goers thru out the day. It was nice and cool next to the river as opposed to Grants Pass. We had a good time here and even though it was full, it was fairly quiet. The same owners have this resort and Bridgeview down the road. Close to shopping areas in Grants Pass. We visited Oregon Caves and did the jet boat tour(Both recommended). Carlos restaurant in Cave Junction was good and the food on the jet boat tour was good. We would stay here again.

Your GPS may get you in some trouble with this resort. Once again, follow the signs and get off at exit 17. Exit 18 is closer to the resort, but will take you over a very narrow bridge about a lane and a half wide. The resort is clean and the employee was very friendly at check-in. The new entrance station is small. It is easy to maneuver in the park and the sites are level and fairly long with a parking space. Sites were nice with picnic table and grass. A fair amount of space between sites, but still looking at septic hoses. Resort was fairly full by the end of the day. Restrooms were at the old entrance and were clean. If you want a river site, forget about it. These are taken be permanents in the park (quite a few). Their sites are for the most part well kept, but a few are getting cluttered. There is access to the river from the resort with a small beach to recreate on. When we were there, the river was busy. Quiet for the most part with a few planes flying over. The resort is close to the Columbia River Gorge scenic road which is a nice drive to the water falls. We would stay here again if in the area. Troutdale looked like a nice little town.

What a place to stay. Our family enjoyed this campground. The owners are the nicest you will come across. You are walked to your site and helped with the back-in. Some sites are a little tricky, but staff knows how to get you in. Our site was tree covered and fairly level. Full hook-ups with 30 amp service only. Fire ring at each site and a picnic table. Staff work hard at keeping this place clean and their facilities nice. Our friends stayed in a cabin that was spotless. There is only one shower and restroom at this campground. Games and puzzles available from registration. Wildlife sometimes visits the campground. Trails lead from the property for a nice hike. Very close to the entrance of Mt. Rainier. Just ask staff for things to do on the Mountain. Make reservations at this campground as it gets full (and I can see why). If you came here for internet, TV, cell phone coverage, you booked at the wrong place. Get out and enjoy nature. If you do not stay at this campground, you are doing yourself a misfortune. I cannot say enough about this place.

This is a typical KOA Kampground. We stayed here due to location to friends. The staff was friendly. The sites are very narrow, but long. You can jump out of your rig and touch the side of your neighbors rig especially if they have slides. Roads around park were a little narrow, but not too bad. Your neighbors hookups are right outside your door. Pool and play area are nice. Store was well stocked. There is a bird viewing area that borders the south side of the park. The road noise can be a little loud if you have the front sites. This campground is close to the sites of Seattle without being in the city. I would return here if I needed to, but will research other places to stay in the area before departing on a trip. Value for what you got was not equal. My main beef with this place is communication (and site size). I requested a late checkout and was granted the request. Nobody placed this request in the computer and I had the next occupant of the site at my door before I was finished packing up. Talk to each other people, and do your job, it does not hurt. Not a bad place if it is your only option.
