Lovely and quiet CG run by the town but right in the middle of the Apostle Island NP. We were able to get Verizon service with our antenna. The campground is a favorite for locals so it can get busy at times. The showers were questionable but the restrooms were fair and provided by NPS although the visitor center was closed after Labor Day and we had to go over to the town of Bayfield to the wonderful visitor center which was in and old, but beautiful school.

We met friends there or we may not have stayed. Quite expensive for what it offered. Clean restrooms and laundry. Good Verizon service. Easy access to Mt. Rushmore. Large pull thru. Way out in the country but easy to get to. Farms all around and peaceful and quiet. Their monthly rate isn't bad but you can not make reservations and with the limited sites you take a chance of driving all the way out there and finding it full in the high season.

Lovely COE CG near the Columbia but not on it. Large newly paved sites. Some 30 amp and some 5 amp. Good Verizon signal. Very friendly hosts. Very clean. One of the best COE we have stayed in. Not a lot of site and quite busy so reservations during the busy season would be advised. As with all Fed CG the need for tree trimming is apparent. And as most COE CGs the dump station was large and easily accessed.

What a little gem! Sites are gravel and well spaced and level. Some looked like they hadn't been used for a long time. This is a bear bones campground but if you are just looking for a cheap place to camp for a while it is perfect. Good Verizon cell service. There are restroom near the gate to the airport where you pay for your site and 2 water faucets in the campground.

What a great park. Big rig friendly. Mostly back in but lots of room with a parking spot for cars alongside. Trees, but trimmed back. Paved sites with table and fire ring. The hosts were exceptional! Used to have a dump station, but it is closed permanently. The only drawback was the noise. This is an ATV friendly CG and believe me there are a lot of ATVs and they are very noisy. There are 2 first-come-first serve Forest Service staging area campgrounds across the street and it is even noisier over there because they are in the sand dune areas. There are rules for decibel loudness and hours of ATV operations but very few FS employees to enforce them so campers just go wild until all hours of the night. The hosts have no authority to make people obey the rules. Fireworks are prohibited but that rule isn't enforced either. If you have an RV and ATV it is the place for you! But if you are looking for a quiet camping experience forget it. There is no cell phone service and no internet. The closest place to dump is at Campers Cove 8 miles away for $12 or in Pacific City.

This is a FS campground and can be reserved but has some walk-in sites. It is located near the town of Gasquet, CA and is the largest of the 3 FS campgrounds in that location along 199. The restrooms and showers were clean. The showers were pay 6 min. for $1. The first loop was derivable with our 40' MH but the last loop was very tight with low overhanging branches. The sites were spaces nicely but lots of branches sticking into it, and the last loop was not very level. Had to tie the limbs back to get the slides out. With antenna and amplifier we were able to sometimes get a Verizon signal for MIFI but not the phone and not reliably. After a week there we were ready to get out to a sunnier place.

For a BLM campground it is a little run down, in need of a face lift but for the money it was a real bargain. The views are spectacular from all sites. The steep hill coming down was a little unnerving at first and the gravel road through the campground was disappointing but again the price is right. Great Verizon signal, long pull-through sites that were quite level for our 40' rig, nice Safeway in Hawthorne and a free dump station at the Shell station. No water or dump so come prepared.

We stay at a lot of government campgrounds and love them. This one may be the exception. First, there are two kinds of camping here: RV park and Campgrounds (no hookups). 3/4 of all the Campground sites are blocked off and in the two loops that are open the sites are very small. Our 40' MH had trouble squeezing into the larger ones. There is a lot of road construction going on which is a good thing to see but there is only one road in and out and there are 30 min waits going in each direction. The oleander bushes really need some trimming. Verizon service is OK 4G for data but only 1X for my 3G phone.

We were the only camper there for a 2 night stay. A few more signs would be helpful to find the campground but the GPS got us there OK. This would be a nice place if it were taken care of. The water leaked, some of the electric didn't work, the roads were falling apart. But it was quiet and easy to get to from I-10. Looks like it is used mostly for off-road vehicles a lot in the summer. No host but did run into a FS employee who told us where the dump station was because the sign was only for people leaving and it was partly fallen down.

We had no problem finding a site that fit our 40' MH, although they could do a little tree trimming. It did get quite busy though because some of the reserve-able sites where having the electric repaired and those reservations had to be moved to the non reserve-able area. Great views of the lake, quite and dark for star watching. Good Verizon phone and internet and strong 50 amp electric. There were no fire rings but lovely covered picnic tables and bq grills.

We love COE campgrounds. Large level sites with cabanas over the tables. Beautiful view of the Arkansas River and the barges going and coming from the locks. Except for the loud humming (mentioned by others) it is a very good place to stay for a few days. Good Verizon service.

We stayed there because of the Golden Age pass but like almost all COE campgrounds you get a lot for your money no matter what you pay. Verizon was weak but with the amp and antenna we got by. Very clean and level and large sites. Busier than I would have thought for Nov. still lots of empty sites. The sites have been improved and sit a little high with steep drop to the picnic table. Would definitely stay there again and again.

What a lovely little park. Glad I read about it on Review. Sites are long a level. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Verizon is good. It is a little tight driving around the outside of this little Chautauqua like community but we did OK in our big rig. There is no sewer but they come around twice a week for free with a honey wagon. The dump station is a little awkward. The trees between the sites are a little low and need trimmed but we did OK with 4 slides.

Just an overnight stay but it was easy to get it and out. Level at site directly behind the repair shop. Good Verizon.

Lovely COE park. Obvious improvements with larger gravel sites. We were in site #6 in the first loop and it was very level and very large. There was good Verizon service and good 50 amp electricity. You MUST be CAREFUL of the turn-around loop at the end of each loop. Even after we disconnected it was hard to get turned around.
