I made our reservation in March for our August one-night stay. While our assigned site was a pull-through with full hookups, from their website, I was expecting shade -- there are VERY FEW here so don't be disillusioned as we were. The restrooms were wonderful(six individual rooms, complete with door lock, sink, stool, and shower stall -- loved this) and the laundry was great (even though there were only two washers and two dryers, they were inexpensive and effective; the room had a sink and a folding table, too). The owner was pleasant and helpful; we felt the price was high (even with our Good Sam Discount), no playground or pool here, so there's not much for kids and there aren't any fire pits for a campfire. The campground is close to town for shopping and supplies. The train, which rolls through Livingston, wasn't an issue -- no horns at night, and it was quiet while we were here. We might consider staying here again.

A nice, well-managed facility. The mature pine trees and quietness were welcomed, even if only for one night. We aren't dancers, but it doesn't matter to stay here. The sites were fairly well placed, and we were offered an available full hookup site that opened up just prior to our arrival. It's close to Lolo (2 miles) and Missoula (8 miles) for shopping and supplies, yet far enough away for some seclusion. Love the fact that it's not a parking lot-type of campground. There were pull-through sites for large rigs too, although not a place that kids would enjoy (not much for them here, no playground, etc.). We would definitely stay here again.

Ideal spot to stay while visiting the Glacier National Park. Not only is it convenient and close to the west entrance, the staff is friendly, the sites are wooded and private, the price is very reasonable, and we were delighted to be able have a campfire in the evening. More showers would be nice, as there are no sewer hookups at the sites (however, there is an on-site dump station). We were in site F5, which backed up to some woods and we were spaced out from adjoining sites. We were here for four days and we would definitely stay here again.

We liked this park mainly because the full-hookup sites were well-spaced and it's close proximity to the town and lakes area. More trees would have been nice but, the staff was very friendly, responsive and helpful. One thing to note, is that the sewer drain is located directly in the middle of your site thus, you either have to drive far enough forward and then attach and back up, or you will need to park nearly on top of the site cement patio area in order not to have to crawl under your unit. There was only one shower stall in the bathroom building near our site, which was intended for a large section of the campground. We would definitely stay here again.

This just isn't our type of 'camping!' We didn't like the parking lot arrangements for the sites and we didn't like that there were so few sites with fire rings. You essentially are lined up along both sides of the street, the electrical post is located on the opposite side from the cord outlet on your RV or travel trailer, there is very little room available for parking your vehicle or for driving to your site down the middle if the road between them. The dump station is located very near the entrance to this extremely busy campground and the potable water is right next to the sewer drains. Unfortunately, there is very limited camping facilities within or near Banff that offer hookups so, you pretty have to take it or leave it (the full-hookup campground is adjacent to this one, but you also have strange sites there as well). Yes, the Canadian Rockies are magnificent and we very much enjoyed our three-day visit to Jasper and our four-day stay in Banff but, you MUST make your reservations very early. Not sure that we would stay here again.

On our two-month RV trip so far (throughout the western U.S. -- Nevada, Utah, California, Oregon, and Washington, this is my favorite park (we still have another three weeks to go). We were here for three nights. It is well-run and the sites are spacious and spread out with lots of mature trees and grass surrounding them. The campground is quiet too. We had a full hook-up site (#58H) with a fire ring, and it was a pull through. I was disappointed that there was only ONE shower facility for such a large park and it was very far away from our site. I also was surprised to find out that we had to pay an additional $8.80 per night for a fire permit to burn in our fire ring at our site (this included as much wood as you wanted, which was very nice). The area is breathtaking with lots to do. We would definitely stay here again.

The nights are fairly quiet. The days in this park are filled with the noise from the constant trains running on the tracks close by and from the road which runs next to the park. We made our reservation for two nights in January (our stay was at the end of July), and we were not encouraged by the less than cordial welcome by the owners. We were then assigned to a site that did not have a fire pit and this was disheartening when I was with the understanding that all of the sites had a picnic table AND a fire ring (we definitely enjoy a relaxing fire in the evening). For the price paid, I did not feel that it was worth the money (although we did have cable TV and Wi-Fi). The sites are close to each other and do not have screening between them. After visiting the area, I would recommend that you research Canada's provincial parks instead.

Although we did not have a prior reservation, the owners were very accommodating to our last-minute stay of only one night. The grounds are well-maintained and the park sets next to the Okanogan River close to downtown Oroville. This a quiet park and we chose a "premium site", which affords you a little extra grassy space. All of the sites are full hookup. We very much enjoyed the park and would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling in this part of Washington.

A well-kept park with friendly staff. Our visit to the area was for only two nights. The park is a short drive to the Anacortes Ferry Terminal (20 minutes) for experiencing the San Juan Islands. Despite the busy weekend and the park being full, we were pleased that people were respectful of the quiet hours, and we enjoyed the privacy vegetation between the sites. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the bathrooms/showers (coins are needed). We would stay here again.

To our surprise, the park had added sewer hook ups this last Spring (there was only water and electric sites) so it was nice to find that we would enjoy the added convenience without any added cost. We stayed here for three nights and had to deal with barking dogs, crying kids in the middle of the night, and loud talking/laughing way past the time for 'quiet hours'. No one is at the park to monitor after 8:00 p.m. The beach is across the road and quite a distance from the campground itself. The roads throughout the CG are narrow and sites are small. We were in Site #32 and there was minimal screening between us and the adjoining sites. It's located fairly close to shopping (within 5 miles). Perhaps we would consider staying here again.

Date of Stay:

A very large park with lots of campers and hosts. There's plenty to see and do in the area. Vegetation and trees abound in amongst the sites, which are somewhat close together but not bad. We enjoyed the historical aspects of the old military fort located here (there was a wonderful event being held here this weekend too, with WW II displays and persons dressed in American and German costumes available for answering questions -- it was a terrific addition to our stay in this State Park). While we didn't have our bikes along, there are many paved trails for riding. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved it here! The only reason we didn't give it a 10 is because there is NO cell phone service here. The park is run very well by a friendly staff (we especially liked a particular host)! We recommend this park and liked the full hook-up site we were assigned (there's plenty of vegetation between sites for privacy) and would definitely stay here again!

This is a lovely, though small, RV park. The beautiful flowers, garden areas, and pond make for a quaint and pretty stay. Our check-in was quick and informative with lots of area information provided by one of the park managers. Although the park is located close to nearby Highway 101, the traffic noise was not noticeable at night. The sites are somewhat tight, but certainly manageable (we were assigned a grassy, pull-through site #36) and were quite comfortable and pleased with the location. There are some full-time, permanent sites; however, they are very well maintained and the regulations here are enforced. The park is centrally located, which makes for easy sightseeing while in the area. The bathrooms and laundry areas were exceptionally clean (complete with fresh-cut flowers adorning the counter for a nice touch). We stayed for three nights, and would definitely visit again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at this clean, quiet, well-managed park. The check-in was quick and thorough. We were very pleased with our assigned, full hook-up, back-in site (#58), which was nice because it had vegetation (trees and bushes) for privacy between the sites. We would definitely stay here again if we were the area.

First of all, DO NOT camp here over the 4th of July! Secondly, expect hordes of people and noise after quiet hours. This facility mixes tent sites with RV sites, which really made for a bad experience for us. We stayed there four nights -- mainly because no refunds are issued, despite the reason. We made a reservation in January for a specific site; however, upon check-in our site was given to someone else. There were many complaints from others that were overheard in the office. No security in the resort after midnight. Their 'rules' aren't enforced, i.e., number of persons allowed in one site (up to twenty-five were counted on two separate adjoining sites next to the first one we were assigned). After much frustration and lack of two nights sleep, we were reluctantly assigned another site that was way on the other side of the park and it was much quieter there. My advice is to make your reservations for the Lake Tahoe area very early, and certainly not here!
