Decent little park in a beautiful setting on the Siletz River. The scenery is nice, but the owner shutting off the internet at 10pm is inexcusable and is doubly insulting when they tell you it's because everyone does video and games. Then they totally shut it off one day and told us they had used up all their data allowance! So, NO more Internet until next month! The rest of the utilities were ok. Verizon was very weak here. Also, the park required very careful maneuvering for our 40' rig. There were quite a few OLD rigs in the park, right up front, but everyone we talked with was very nice. There were a lot of tent campers and kids, and there's a boat ramp and marina here, too. The wind blows like crazy in Oregon, but the trees give you a little break here. The owners were polite, but the Internet thing is unbelievable. We won't be back.

Very nice park. It is very quiet, with spacious sites and good utilities. Verizon was kind of spotty and you have to specifically ask for their Wi-Fi code, but it is mediocre at best. This is a great location for exploring Crater Lake, which is itself magnificent. Diamond Lake is really nice too, although the mosquitoes were very active. Also, beware of all the squirrels and chipmunks as they WILL get into your coach! We got some repellent and that seemed to keep them out. They are very strict about pets being on the leash, which is a good thing. A lot of nice friendly folks made our stay here very nice. The only negative was the "skeeters" so stay sprayed up!

I should've paid more attention to the reviews that mentioned the pub and the run-down RVs here. First, the pub was 100 yards away and yet we had sleepless nights with the extremely loud music, people and motorcycles until after 2 and 3 a.m. Ironically, their first rule states their quiet hours begin at 10 p.m., like most parks. When we asked to speak to the owner about it he refused. Second, the dilapidated RVs here are worse than we've seen in years of travel. Long-term residents and work campers are fine with us, but a lot of these have junk yards out front and frankly, they look like they should be condemned. One lady told us she had had some things stolen and that there was a gang of kids running around who were not being dealt with. Also notable, there were NO trash cans anywhere except a large garbage truck at the side of the long entrance road. No surprise, there was a good deal of trash blowing around the grounds. We will not be back here due to the horrendous management by the owner, which is a shame because the park has so much potential.

Rate reflects the weekly amount. Very nice park, under the shade trees and beside a beautiful river. All our utilities were fine but probably too many trees for satellite. WiFi is typically slow in the p.m. All staff were professional and very friendly/helpful. Sites are paved and level, with some fairly tight maneuvering, but not too bad. The host expertly directs most rigs coming and going. There is slight road noise in the front of the park and dogs barking, that is typical of any populated area. We enjoyed our stay in the area and this park in particular. We'd definitely come back again. Check out the excellent restaurants: Pomidori's in Medford and Si Casa Flores in Grants Pass. Quail Point is a very nice, challenging golf course. We also enjoyed the wine tour through Applegate Valley.

Rate reflects the monthly amount. This is a top-notch first rate park. Friendly staff run this place well and are very accommodating. The utilities are very good, the sites are level and the river is beautiful. It's a five minute drive into town and the harbor, and they are both charming. The complaint about the driveway is nitpicking. Sure, it is one lane and it is steep, but it is far from being a problem. The only thing that might approach being an annoyance is the road across the river is a little noisy. It is about 150 yards away and occasionally you hear a logging truck jake-braking down the slight grade. Road noise has not been a problem for me, I just thought it may be noteworthy to some. Golfers, you'll love Salmon Run. Get the discount card if you're here for long. The migratory fish were not running yet, but the trout were biting.

Thirty minutes from the south gate of Yosemite, but it's a nice drive. Maneuvering is tight here, as are the sites. Utilities are OK, except cable is unwatchable and satellite is inoperable due to trees and high surrounding terrain, although that is what makes it a pretty park. The people are friendly but complain a lot. Next time we'd try to stay closer to the park, or in it.

I almost deducted more stars for the noise. This is a great location for exploring the area, but there must have been some nearby construction or something. There were large trucks driving by early in the morning. Otherwise, this park was very good, except they mounted the water spigot so close to the power pylons that it was hard to attach our hose. There was no over the air TV, only satellite, and that depends on where you park, as there are a lot of trees. Overall, great park. Just watch the trees coming in via city streets. We are 12'7" and our CB antenna whacked a few limbs, but the access was OK otherwise.

I wanted to rate it higher because of the easy access and pull through sites, but the noise from the highway was deafening. If you don't mind that then this is a great overnight park. I'd be hesitant about anything bigger than 40' because as you exit the pull through site the ground drops off right away and puts the middle of the coach dangerously close to bottoming out. We are 40' and so were our neighbors, who I watched them pull out, and seeing how close they came really got my "pucker-factor" up. Double check it with the owners, they are very nice people. Overall, this is a nice park. I just couldn't reconcile the noise with the price charged.

This is the kind of park that looks really good to a tired driver at the end of a long day on the road. The highway is about one half mile away-so the noise just seems like faint white-noise to me. The staff is friendly and does a nice job with this place. My only beef is some of the "long-termers" drive too fast and have very loud vehicles. Otherwise, perfect, unless you've got to have a picnic table. This was our second visit and we'll stay again anytime we're on I-40. We'll probably even plan our trip to make this a stop.

Excellent park, with super easy access and great utilities. My only complaint was about the air traffic from the nearby small mini airport, but it was a minor nuisance. One night we heard a couple of flights take off in the early early a.m. Very nice staff. Good location near the interstate and town. We'll be back.

Another beautiful COE Campground! If this were privately owned it'd be more than $60/night I'm sure. Everything but sewer, satellite depends on the trees at your site, easy access and great roads. Ozark is a nice little town with friendly folks. I didn't consider the train on the other side of the river to be a factor. It was cold and rainy but we still loved it. Not bad at all to/from I-40.

Very good facilities, utilities, roads and access, but plan your entry if you're in a big rig. You can only make a right turn into the park heading south on Gilbert. Don't trust your gps to bring you in the right way. They advertise WiFi but it was down the 12 days we were here. This is a typical 55+ park in this area but this one allowed pets, so here we are and I guess I'm just not crazy about these types of 55+ residential parks. They allow transient RV's and can easily accommodate them, but there are mostly very old mobile homes and some are very dilapidated. I have to say though, that most of the residents do a very nice job with landscaping, gardens and decorations. The area is very nice, however, and we always felt very safe. We would stay here again but would make sure and ask about what they're parking us next to. The trailer next to us looked like it should've been condemned.

Outstanding CG, with huge level sites, many right on the water or with great views, and lots of space between them. Some sites have better view of water than others. Good roads for easy maneuvering. The shade was great, but not for satellite reception. Very nice staff and the CG is very well-run. I reluctantly entered this review as I thought I'd like to keep it a secret! Can't wait to come back.

GOOD: easy access off I-40, huge wide/long/flat sites, utilities, TV/Sat reception, great dog run area, price, location to Amarillo attractions. BAD: there are a LOT of work-campers who leave early in the a.m. in loud trucks, really bad fly problem (but we were near the dumpsters), several long-terms who have extremely loud motorcycles and like to ride them around the park (?!), some highway noise, especially when the wind is out of the north. We stayed for 10 days and would stay again. BTW, the other area RV parks are even closer to the freeway. This is a great overnight park.

Nice little CG but the sites are very tight for a big rig. It is borderline to even call it "big-rig friendly" as the tow-vehicle parking is limited. They have overflow parking which is good but this is just a very small CG. However, the owners do a very good job and the place is clean as a whistle. The location is good, only 1 mile from town and maybe two to the cog RxR. TV, satellite, Wi-Fi, cell service are all good. Be careful with the water pressure, it was 70-80psi the whole time. The city park next door was nice for walking the dog, though there was a drunk sleeping on a bench one morning. There are lots of "those" types in and around Manitou Springs. Though there were lots of really nice folks too. If you like Middle Eastern food check out Sahara Cafe. We loved the falafel.
