This is the third time we have stayed here this year, and have to say that it seems the place may be sliding just a bit. Not the maintenance and general upkeep, which still seem good, but the general condition of the units ( more than one per site in some cases ) that now seem to occupy a good portion of the park, and the fact that a very high percentage of people here are full time working folks. Nothing wrong with that, if they called it an "RV Park" or "Trailer Park", however they are billing this as an "RV Resort". I personally think of a resort as a place where I can go to relax, and get away from the work-a-day life for some R&R, and not have to listen to all the vehicles starting up and idling at 0600 to head off to work, or worry about off leash dogs wandering around by themselves in the evenings. There really don't seem to be any rules here! The park itself is still being well maintained at this time, and we may well give it one more go, but if there is no improvement on these issues, we will not likely keep trying. Just think there should be some truth in advertising here...if it is being billed as a "Resort"...there should be some checks and balances in place to keep it that way.

Very nice campsite right on the South Thompson River. Well kept by friendly and helpful camp hosts. The gravel sites were mostly level, and all had power and water. The utility posts were shared between two sites, so driving in may work out better for some. Trains were noisy, but we did get used to them after a few days. Cell service at the sites is spotty at best, but if you walk up to the day use area, reception is much better. It can be a bit noisy in the evenings, with the fishermen telling tall tales, but things do quiet down after ten. We will stay here again.

This is a difficult RV Park to rate. As the name says.."Rustic" is the key word here. There was only one bathroom (outhouse) and one shower that we saw, and only two sites had "full hookups". The sewer hookups on the full service sites have a long neck on them, so that the hose has to do a small uphill run to drain completely, and the water and power lines basically just lay on the ground. That being said, the owner is very pleasant, and the sites do give you plenty of elbow room, and should stay reasonably clean when rainy, due to the grass cover on most of them. Aside from the train traffic, it was a very quiet spot, well away from the highway. Very steep (10%) unpaved hill coming into this park, so be cautious coming down the hill, particularly when raining. We would camp here again.

Not a lot of options for RV parks in this area, but having said that, this is the best one around. The sites are well spaced and have some shrubs between them for a bit of privacy. I did find the location of the power and sewer hookups a little inconvenient for our motorhome, as the sewer was toward the back of the site and the power was near the center ( this was a pull through ). Everything was well kept and clean, roads were paved, but the sites were gravel and pretty much level. Lots to do here with Sidney and Central Saanich near by....bring your bikes, as you are minutes from the Lochside trail which will take you to Sidney or Victoria. Would have rated this park a bit higher except for the poor condition of the roads and neighborhood you have to go through to get here. Some of the sites toward the bottom of the hill (11 - 15) have a water view. I would stay here again if in the area.

What a nice surprise to find such a great facility so close to town, but not too close! At first glance we thought the place may be a bit far from things, ( shopping, groceries, etc. ), but it was not an issue at all...about 10-12 minutes to the nearest store, and about 15 to the shops in Kelowna. You will want to take your bike with you, as the Kettle Valley trail is just minutes up the road. The sites were level, well spaced, and well kept. The owner ( Leslie ) couldn't be more helpful, and has (delicious) fresh eggs for sale daily. The park is very quiet and peaceful at night. We highly recommend making reservations early, even in the shoulder season...they fill up fast. We would have rated this a 10, however, be aware that you will be charged full rate for the "overflow" sites, which only have a 15a extension cord to them, and have no water or sewer. Other than that we were very pleased with our stay, and will go back again.

This is one of the nicest RV Parks we have been in. We were recommended by friends, and were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and efficient, even backing us into our site. We chose the upper sites as the river can be a bit loud in the spring. The grounds were well kept, the buildings, while not new, were very well kept, and clean. We had plenty of room to get around with our motorhome, but some of the sites may be a challenge to large fifth wheels. There are several seasonal campers here, which added a nice homey feel to the place. The campground is about 3 miles off of Highway 20, but well worth the drive. We look forward to coming back.

This a great alternative to Mary Hill state park, even if the state park is not full. The rate reflects a site with out sewer hookup. Friendly campsite hosts, level sites, good Wi-Fi, picnic tables, and lots of nicely kept lawn made this a very nice overnight stay. The washrooms, while clean enough, are throwbacks to decades past, and long overdue for a remodel. Train noise may be an issue if you were staying for more than a night or two. We would overnight here again.

Nice surprise. We were there Friday of a long weekend, and expected most campgrounds to be busy and noisy, but not so here. Very quiet. New owners were very friendly and helped us into our site. Laundry and washrooms were very clean. Wi-Fi was excellent, and there was a nice walking path down to the river. The road was somewhat busy through the day, but was quiet at night. We will be sure to stay here again when travlling the coast.

Campground appears to be under new management since we were last here two years ago. Still seems nice, and well run. We were in a back-in spot near the rear of the property, and the sites were well spaced and quite private. The staff was friendly and helpful. Cannon Beach is just a short walk under the highway (about 10 minutes). Would have rated it higher if the washrooms were updated and the pavement in the sites were fixed up a bit. We will stay here again.

Very well kept RV Park. Sites were a bit short, but not really an issue. Level concrete pads, and a nice well kept grassy area and paved roads make for a clean site when it's raining. Road was a bit noisy, but did quiet down at night. All in all a great place for a stopover, even if you don't use the casino.

I agree with the other posters who love this campground. It is a great spot with plenty of good riding trails for your mountain bike. I would say that McDowell Mountain Park would have an edge on the mountain biking aspect; however, the sites at Usery Park have much more plant life and greenery. Great shopping nearby, very friendly volunteers. The only somewhat negative thing we can say would be to keep your bicycles locked up while you are here, as there have been a few problems this winter.

A very convenient and friendly place to stay; staff very good. Close to town and groceries, etc. This is our fourth year here, and while we do like it, they have really let the washrooms and showers go downhill, and the worst thing we found was the lack of cleaning in the laundry room. The floor and the machines were very dirty. I told the office staff about this, hopefully by our visit next year, they will have it cleaned up.

Very nice campground, close to town, but far enough away to feel more remote. Tommy Thompson trail runs through the campsite and is about a two mile walk to the Safeway store in town. Friendly staff, nice washrooms, and a fun games room made our stay enjoyable. Sites were gravel and well kept. There were picnic tables, but did not see any fire-rings. The road out front was under construction (minor delays), but is supposed to be finished the week of May 16th. The highway noise is noticeable at most sites, but the traffic drops to just about nothing at night, making for a good sleep. With so much to do in Anacortes, we will be staying here again.

This is a nice, clean, well run park that is away from the freeway noise yet close to good shopping and just across the Highway from Camping World if you are in need of anything for the RV. We have stayed here several times and have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The only reason we give it lower marks are the narrow sites, while they are concrete pads, they are just a bit narrow, so that when you are doing your connections you are standing in the flower beds, or, if you leave yourself room on that side, the steps go on to the grass. That being said, it is a nice place and we will stay here again for sure.

This was just an OK park as far as we were concerned. Mainly because of the Freeway noise. I-5 just never quiets down so it was quite noisy anywhere in the complex. That being said, the managers were very nice, the washrooms were roomy and very clean, and there there was a pleasant view overlooking a farmer's field. It was also a nice touch to get a newspaper delivered in the morning.
