Hot tub gone permanently. Kitchen remains a work in progress. Very Slow progress, but a nice assortment of 'reasons' why there isn't any- progress that is. Held a graduation party for my grand-daughter & all the kids had a blast with no problem from the hosts. Thank you! WiFi is much better now. Pool table not level. Still our favorite KM park.

Date of Stay:

Have stayed here several times while going somewhere on I-90. Park seems to be in better shape that previous visits, but I would definitely disagree with the previous review that says "this is KM's nicest park". Eastbound we had a tiny pull through that was angled backwards to all the others in the row. Westbound 3 of us in a row were in sites that were so short we had to move to let the neighbor into his site. Will certainly stay here again, but it's not among my favorites.

So glad to see all the poor reviews...maybe next time we go it won't be so crowded. We were there over Memorial Day & the place was jammed despite buckets of rain every day. Sites puddled up, but drained quickly when it finally let up. Gorgeous place, very cool old trees, wild rhodys in bloom, some squirrels, but no deer. Don't know what others saw, but bathroom/showers (in H loop) were kept clean & stocked. Typical Oregon SP push-button showers worked fine & were plenty hot. Site was a little tight to back into (first shot both times), but plenty big enough for slide & awning once we were in ). Elec & Water only in this section so had to go to dump station in the middle of the week. Well placed & worked fine.

2nd review (see 7/10) after 5 visits. Beautifully kept, shower spotless. Hookups well place & work perfectly. WiFi not so much. Site a little narrow & funny angle to back in, but do-able. Only saw 1 deer while there. Lavender Festival weekend to place was packed, but still quiet & kept clean. Discovered "Fat Smitty's" on highway 101 south of town. Looks like a dive outside, but very cool inside & one of the best burgers you'll ever eat ANYWHERE. Try it! You'll be glad you did.

Our 2nd stay here, previous was 15 years ago. Typical Ore SP- very nice & much better kept than Washington or Calif SP's. Long, correctly angled back-in site that would have been a breeze to get into if the knucklehead across the road hadn't left his mini-van parked in the road instead of his site. Weather was lousy, but that's not the park's fault. Water flow button in the shower didn't work. First time I've ever had a problem in an Ore SP. Only real issue was the trash- 1 drop site for a huge park, but it was the same @ South Beach earlier in the week, so it seems to be a budget thing that affects all the parks. Not fatal, just a hassle if you're there more than a couple days- we weren't.

Typical Ore SP, which is to say "Excellent". Road in wa plenty wide, but the speed bumps are brutal! Out site was correctly angled for EZ back-in, but I saw some that weren't. Bath/shower rooms very nice, tho shower lacked hooks. Place was packed, even mid-week, but there were plenty of mosquitoes for all present. Lots of bikes on the roads. Nice trails to beach. Lots of pine trees, but still a very open feel to the place. EZ access to/from US 101 & only a short drive to Newport which has everything you could want. Try Flashback's for 50's diner ambiance & great food.

Very Nice! Turn into the park is acute, but not tight if you use all the road to swing wide. Very nice grounds & facilities. Trail not maintained and this is tick country. Nice breeze off the river most of the day. River access, but no swimming.

Date of Stay:

Our second stay here, and better than the first time. Roads in better shape. Some shade provided by trees in the main hook-up area. Sites ARE very close together, but no problem in or out with 25' trailer on Labor Day weekend & full park. No issues with water or power, but the run to sewer was very long & uphill. Shower/rest rooms were very nice. Golf course in better shape than last time too. Wi-Fi was fast & strong, but erratic & didn't function as was explained at check-in. Labor Day sale up the road at Packwood was a ZOO! Will NOT go up there again, but park was quiet & pleasant despite full load for Holiday weekend. Will definitely go back.

Date of Stay:

3rd and 4th nights spent here, again a week apart. First good look at facilities. Appears they're continuing to repair/upgrade. Mini-golf looked to be re-covered. Laundry/showers/pool etc spotless. Sites where we were ARE close together, but nearly level, utilities well positioned and worked well. Easy in-out pull through's. What more could you ask for in an over-nighter?

Date of Stay:

Absolutely the best USFS campground I've ever seen. Vault toilets only, but clean as a whistle. All pull through sites. Plenty wide in and out at the sites we saw. Nice trees, but not too many. Bears, wolves and elk rumored in the area but all we saw was a wild turkey and some squirrels. Would be an 11 with sewer hook-ups, but hey, it's a national forest CG. $5 to dump at Angler's Roost RV on the way north on US 93.

Date of Stay:

Overnight here (both ways) for the gazillion time on our way from Olympia to Calif & back. First time in "E" loop as most of the park still closed for the winter. Nice, level pull thru close to the bath/shower. Maybe too level, when we got up in the morning our site was a lake 3-6" deep. Aberration? It's been a La Nina winter everywhere! Best state park shower I've ever been in. We'll definitely stop here again, and again...Rate is disabled-Vet discount, standard is $20.

Spent a week here right after they'd been closed for 3 months for 'renovations'. Was pleasantly surprised at the overall condition of the park after reading previous reviews. Everything worked (although I found the sewer connections strange). Bath/shower rooms were very nice. Pool wasn't open yet and many of the sites were closed off because of all the rain. All sites are grass, or would be if it hadn't been underwater all winter. Mud was a problem but probably wouldn't be later in the year. Absolutely the nicest, friendliest, most helpful (WITHOUT sounding phony/smarmy about it) check in person we've ever encountered at a campground. We'd go back here just because of her, but we'll wait 'til a bit later in the year. They do breakfast/lunch almost every day instead of just weekends like most parks. Cant remember about dinner. Try Rogelio's Mexican/Chinese/Italian/American restaurant in Isleton. You'll be pleasantly surprised too. Closest supermarket is in Lodi about 12 mi, but easy drive. There's a Wal-Mart there too if you really need one.

Date of Stay:

K/M membership park with RPI etc access. A little off the beaten path but very quiet and well run. Bath and shower rooms spotless. Nice clubhouse and honor system ice. Utilities well located and worked! Mini-golf well taken care of. Resident deer. Sequim has everything from roadside Lavender shops (and wandering elk herd) to Wal-Mart/Costco. Try "The Islander" for pizza/pasta!!

Date of Stay:

Very nice (typical) Oregon State Park. High desert country, but set in thick pines, so is much cooler than surrounding area. Easy back-in, level, full hook-up site. Excellent restroom/shower rooms (compare to Washington or California State Parks- yuck). Convenient to Bend, Crater Lake NP, Newberry Volcanic NM etc. A long drive, but we will definitely go back.

Date of Stay:

One of our favorite Parks anywhere. Have stayed here dozens of times over 20 years. Nice respite from Gorge heat. Restroom/Shower conditions put both Washington and California State Parks to shame, not to mention costs. Lots to do in area at any time of year. Get the "Fruit Loop" map and follow it. Don't miss "Packers" or the Alpaca Farm. Say "Hi" to Charlie the Pyrenese @ the Alpaca place. He's one very cool dude. Some noise issues between the freeway and the trains, but the train horn noise seemed less than usual the last time we were here.
