Spacious and level, gravel sites. Lots of shade trees, carefully limbed up so no problem maneuvering into your space and around the park. Wi-Fi works great, and there is a new pool. Everything is very well maintained and spotless. Great location for visiting Springfield, or as an overnight since it is so convenient to many interstates. We will definitely return.

An absolute gem of a park run by Hamilton County. RV sites are generous in size and are all level, back-ins with mature trees providing abundant shading. At least 25 of these sites back directly on to the White River, offering a picturesque and tranquil site that exceeds expectations and offers lovely canoe or kayak access as well. The campground and facilities are spotless and well-maintained. It is gated with a security code at night, and the campground hosts and staff constantly are checking to ensure everything is in order. We stayed for 10 days, and during the week the campground was half-full while it completely fills on the week-ends. Although there are many families with lots of children on the weekends, everyone seemed to be incredibly respectful of quiet hours, and the park never lost its quiet and tranquil character. Free Wi-Fi was available, but only on the office porch. Lack of cable TV and Wi-Fi throughout the park is the only thing that kept this from being rated an 11 out of 10! We will definitely return.

Large, very well maintained facility with level, paved sites even though it is built on a hill. The pull through sites have awkward utilities placement with electric all the way in the front and water all the way in the rear, which were impossible to hook up to without an extension to either the electric or water. The park did provide me a 50 amp extension cord to use while there at no charge, so they are accommodating to this arrangement at minimal inconvenience. There is a large swimming pool, and the park was completely full with families and children. Caution is mandatory, as there are loads of small kids everywhere on bikes and trikes! This made for a good choice for an overnight for us while traveling due to its location, and would be great for families with kids who need lots of things to do to keep busy. But it's not a spot for a scenic or tranquil destination camping experience.

What more can I say... this is the best RV resort we have ever visited. Outstanding landscaping and a brand new activities center that boasts a post office, business center, café, movie theatre and a concierge service. The proprietors are on-site and take a full hands-on interest in their resort and the enjoyment of their owners and guests -- which is evident in the quality of this facility. You won't find better anywhere in the country!

Campground is clean and well-maintained. Has very easy access directly from US 2, which results in some road noise during the day, but it is not a problem because at night traffic on the main road is almost non-existent. Wi-Fi is strong and fast, and cable TV is strong with more than 70 channels. Pull through sites (6 or 7 of them) are level with good gravel and at least 70 ft long so they enable you to stay hooked up if towing. Certainly the best choice in the area if you are looking for a campground that has full hookups.

Very nice campground with good utilities and friendly staff. One of the better KOA's for sure. Although the roads were a little tight in some places, we were able to navigate in and out without too much difficulty with our 40 ft motorhome and tow vehicle. We had a pull-through, though we only saw two real pull-though sites in the campground with the remainder being back-ins. A 45 ft MH with a tow vehicle might have some challenges in navigating between some of the mature trees that provide thorough shade if going to the pull-through sites. We would stay here again.

An older type campground with mostly permanent residents in rigs of various levels of maintenance and care. The sewer location is at the extreme rear of the pull through sites, making setup difficult. There were numerous sites that were sufficiently sloped as to make leveling a big rig challenging, although our site and the one next to us were flat enough. This is ok for a stopover, but we would not camp here for an extended stay.

Absolutely beautiful and immaculately maintained park and campground. The sites are wooded, level, and the surrounding green space is immaculately maintained. We have never seen such a beautifully landscaped and maintained state park. There are miles and miles of level, paved bike trails both along the lake and in the woods. The park "rangers" were all friendly and helpful, as was every other park service person. The park is very heavily used on the weekends, as when we arrived on Sunday afternoon there was a constant stream of campers and boaters exiting the park. But during our stay during the week, we felt we had almost the whole park to ourselves. Be aware though that the waterfront sites are absolutely covered with huge bugs at this time of year. Screened canopies for sitting outside of your camper are an absolute must at a site near the water unless you don't mind being eaten up. We camped at an interior loop away from the water, and had no problems with insects. We will definitely camp here again.

The "new" large pull throughs have completely misplaced utilities. The water and sewer are located at the very back of the site, with the sewer connection located more than 25 ft behind the bumper of my rig after pulling forward only enough to barely keep my towed vehicle out of the road behind me. When I asked to be located to another site, they informed me they had no others available, but that they would gladly sell me another sewer hose to connect with my own hose so it would reach. The person who led me to my site only shook their head and quietly told me that the owners who built the campground "weren't RV'ers" and wouldn't listen to those who were, when the built the sites. I believe it. This is a premium price to pay, and that should be reflected in the design and amenities of the campground. Unfortunately, it is not. We would most likely not camp here again.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The owners are on site every day, work hard to provide quality and immaculate facilities, and take obvious pride in welcoming every guest. The made us feel like family from the time I called for a reservation, then when they greeted us, and throughout our stay. The restrooms, showers, and laundry are the cleanest ever. Don't know how they do it. The sinks and fixtures were not only perfectly clean, they were dry each time we went in! Of course, looking out on the Yellowstone River with the mountains as a backdrop and deer along the shore is the icing on the cake. The owner and his wife (along with all their other staff) have put together the total package, and other campground proprieters should take a lesson from them. Nightly rate reflects the discount for a weeks rental. We will be back to camp here again as soon as possible.

Campground has a very odd entrance where you have to pull completely around the campground store during check in. All sites are back in and there is no place where you can disconnect/reconnect your toad without totally blocking the road. Not ideal for big rigs, but it is workable with some attention. You have to pay for Wi-Fi and although there is no cable TV, we had pretty good reception of a handful of stations from the antenna. This place was jammed on Saturday when we arrived, and dozens of children were absolutely everywhere (frighteningly, they were largely unsupervissed), on bikes and skateboards and people driving ATVs and golf carts constantly through the campground. But at night it was quiet and peaceful and by Sunday night the park had about half emptied out. Design is odd with double concentric loops. Try to get one of the outer loops on its outside, and you will have a nice woodsy view behind you and a quiet site. Strange not to have sewer in a relatively new park, but they do have two dump stations on the way out. We would stay here again.

On the positive side, there is good Wi-Fi and cable TV, the restrooms and laundry are quite clean, and there is a large green space for playing frisbee, etc. On the down side, about 20-25 percent of the sites are permanent residents (although with generally adequately maintained trailers) who park their vehicles obstructing the roadways and who seem to be indifferent about picking up after their pets. The "green spaces" between sites are weeds with spotty gravel in the parking spots and with many bare dirt areas. We would stay here again, but only for a day or two.

Very well maintained KOA. Everything looks and operates like new. Level paved sites with plenty of room between them for slideouts and awnings. All utilities worked great. A little quirky to get in and out, since it is smack in the middle of town, but that also makes it an extremely convenient location to everything in the Meridien and Boise area. The rate listed includes the KOA Value Kard discount, and it's a bargain for all that is provided. We would stay here again.

Good location for the Tri Cities and wine country. Unfortunately this campground is predominately permanent residents with a fair share of poorly maintained campers and the overall park is in need of a significant update and improved maintenance. Sites are extremely close together and I had to drive over a berm to exit when we left, due to insufficient turning radius with residents trucks parked almost directly in front of my camping location. The campground office is a 1960 vintage trailer that looks as if it has been parked there without attention since it was new. This could be a decent park, but it needs a lot of attention to attain a reasonable standard of cleanliness and amenities. We would not stay here again.

A lovely state park campground, that is very well maintained. It is also heavily used and quite busy, but that is because it is so accessible to Seattle and a worthwile destination. The only downside is that pull through sites for larger rigs are narrow and sharply curved among the large trees, making pulling through any site in a rig longer than about 35' a real chore. I had the very most accessible site in the park, and I had to back into the pull-through to situate in my 40' MH. But the beauty and features of the park make this worthwhile. We would stay here again.
