Here now on a special no cost Casino Royalty promotion(12 nights free). Lots of construction taking place which is why, I think, this offer is going on. While the park is always in pretty good shape, some of the up keep has fallen off. Also on Friday and Saturday nights, the security patrol needs to get out of their cars and speak with the late night party goers. Letting employees park in empty sites is not real attractive either. But no real complaint....still a beautiful park.

Date of Stay:

The campground itself is fairly nice. Some sites can be a challenge both parking and leveling wise. Power/ water/sewer all good but watch your voltage on those warm day's. The River, because of the drought, was well below normal and the suggestion was not to go in the water due to algae issues. There area couple of Casino's in the area but nothing special. We were disappointed about the River but can't blame the CG for that. As I recall, Verizon worked well and the Lodge had good Wi-Fi. I think I'd give this place another shot when the River is flowing again(hopefully soon).

We spent 8 nights here while visiting the Oregon coast. You do have to search a tad if you want a 50 amp full hook up site but we managed to find one that was heavily wooded and even though the adjoining site is close by, you feel totally secluded. Sat reception is very much an issue here...I worked for about an hour with a portable dish to get a signal. Pick your site carefully. The Lodge is very nice with an excellent view of the Ocean across the highway. Wi-Fi worked well at the lodge too. Verizon was weak but usuable with a booster. Good power, water and waste. Behind Whaler's Rest, this would be our second choice. I will return when in the area again.

We had heard so much about this place. We stayed on the North side of the CG and it was more like a parking lot than anything else. Yes, you are within walking distance to town and power(50amp) water and sewer are good. Cell phone was good(Verizon), Wi-Fi in the Lodge worked well also. Once again, they have an indoor pool and spa that were very nice along with the Clubhouse itself. The manager of the park on the other hand...maybe he was having a bad day but we travel with 4 small doggies and always set up x-pens outside our rig(we are very responsible Pet owners). The X-pens we normally(always cover with a roll of material so that the Kids don't bark at everything that walks by. Long story short, the manager didn't like out covering even though we've used the same thing for year's....he demanded we take it down. We cut our stay here short(schedule for 2 weeks, stayed 1) because of his attitude. Other than that, a very nice Park but one I won't go back to! we stayed here in a MH.

We stayed here for a week and had a site on the back row with a large grassy area behind us that backed up to the wilderness. All utilities were good and the pool and spa were in excellent shape. Casino about 10 miles down the road and beach access not far away either. Beautiful Clear skies here at night(very dark) great for star watching. Nice fire rings to gather around and stay toasty. Very quiet here at night. The lodge, although small, was just right for the number of quests who utilized it. We were having Doggie problems while here so it distracted from some of our enjoyment(an aging and sick lil doggie). My only disappointment here was the RPI price...it is suppose to be 10 a night but by the time they add this and that, your at 18 a night..still good but!!!

OK...so we made the trip to Oregon and Whaler's Rest was our first and our 4th stop for a total of close to 4 weeks. Very busy CG but sites seem to be fairly private. Good power(mostly 50 amp here), water pressure good, sewer in working order and most sites have cable TV hook up($$). Satellite Views can be a problem with all the tree's...get a site map when entering and it will let you know whether Sat connection is possible. The indoor pool is large and nice, the spa relaxing but pretty small. The lounge is a good place to hang out and excellent Wi-Fi here at the Lodge. Beach access is across the hiway but an easy walk. Just a recommendation, if you need a Vet, Dr. Brown in Newport was Great(can't say enough good things about them), we have a doggie emergency. All in all, loved this park and will return when we make it up this way again. We stayed here in a MH.

We stay at this park via RPI for 10 bucks a night whenever we're in the area. All utilities function as they should, mostly 30 amp sites, cable TV and Wi-Fi available with modem rental. The pools, the spas, the river are great. The on site bar is very friendly and happy hour prices make it a bargain. We happen to love site #78....it's close to everything and easy to stumble back to after a day/night at the bar. Yes, the sites are relatively close to one another but we have never had any noise issues. We will return!

Have stayed here several times using our TT membership and always enjoy ourselves. Park was busy this time around with most every site be taken. We used this Park as a staging area for attending the "Vinter's Wine Festival" in Buellton and had a wonderful time. Very friendly staff and always quiet here. We will stay here again and again.

Date of Stay:

First time in this Park. Sites are very close together, some hook ups are at the rear of the site so be prepared. Close to plenty of Vegas action within a short drive. My overall perception is that it's crowded. Everything is close together and some have sites that are just plain ugly with all their junk on them which also given it that crowded look. Probably won't return but since it's a no cost Park for us, you never know. We don't spend that much time in the RV when in town anyway. All utilities worked good and we had an older 50 amp site which they do charge 3-5.00 for.

Our second time here, we had site #78 and we loved it! This place is big and you are packed in fairly close but everyone is so friendly. I know it's been said before but the bar/snack bar has such great deals and Yes, that includes their daily Happy 3 hours when prices of beer are unbelievable. Regular prices aren't bad either. Anyways, good water pressure, mostly 30 amp electrical and sewer. If you want River front here, you'll have to join CRA but as noted. Our site was great. We had good Verizon coverage and since we were close to the Club house, we got free WiFi too, other wise they have cable which requires a rental of adapter(modem). We will return!

We choose this Park because it was the right price and it's proximity to Quartzsite(about 30 miles). Level gravel site, good 30 amp power, water pressure OK, not great. No problem with Sat reception, No OTA channels, Verizon good and free WiFi at site. We enjoyed our stay here although we had a issue with the Resort Fee of 4.00 a night. Not a big deal but No One at Thousand Trail's, or this Park which is a KOA, will address. We still liked the Park, its quiet, never had a problem with loud ATV's leaving and Great star gazing! A train does go past the camp ground a few times each night but it wasn't a problem..it's across the highway.

We stayed here through New Year's and had blizzard on New Year's day...it was Fun!!! We had a hill top site with View of the River/Casino's down below. The bluff location can be very windy so watch those awning's if you dare open it. Good utilities all around. Gravel pads. This is a large CG and it does have some long term residents but we found everyone to be friendly. The small snack bar on site has daily specials.

Date of Stay:

Nice wooded park. We were up top near the pool in a nice 50 amp site. Park was fairly empty because it was starting to get cooler. Many things to do in the area and casino's aren't too far away. We enjoyed our week long stay.

Date of Stay:

Great park, great location. Lots to do in the area. Very nice casino and good casino food. This park shows pride in ownership....I was impressed and with PA discount, super deal.

Date of Stay:

Very well kept park. Roads are paved, concrete pads and nice grass area's. All utilities are top notch. Cable TV and great satellite TV views. Pool area and restrooms are spotless. Casino a short shuttle ride away with good food at a number of places. We had a lot fun here. Will return.
