Check-in went smoothly, staff was friendly. CG in in the flight path of light aircraft from nearby airport and across the highway from railroad, neither is irritating, just be aware. Sites are gravel with pavers for patio with a picnic table. Two sites share a stanchion for power and water. Most are pull-thru although there are some back-ins. CG Wi-Fi is terrible and local HDTV draws 8 or 9 stations, 3 major networks and Fox. We have stayed here before and there are several National Parks, Monuments, Historic Sites and Ruins within easy driving distance. We would stay here again when in the area.

Date of Stay:

We spent most of the winter at Thousand Trails, in two different sites in H section. The CG was extremely busy this year and late comers had difficulty finding a site most days. There are member generated activities nearly every day, every week. The Home Style Restaurant offers an okay menu and an attitude. Verde Valley offers several locations to get out and hike, or shop, bike, quad, and several National Park Monuments and State Parks. Staff is friendly and helpful, propane is available on site five days a week, a little pricey but saves having to drive into Cottonwood or Camp Verde to refill tanks. There are several changes being made in the park, adding four more "get-away" cabins in H section this spring. Many folks spend the winter here in Verde Valley, in long term sites and several reside in the park year round. Sites are kept neat and clean, no eye sores. Two of the H section sites have been covered with rock and cleaned up for handicap access. We enjoy the time we spend here and will return again this next fall.

We visited here twice this winter, our time out from Thousand Trails, and the owners are super. The office has moved to near the entrance and the former building is now a private residence of owner and family. WiFi is okay, not great. HDTV draws about 15 local stations. The sites are gravel with patios and landscape around the stanchions, plenty of room in the pull throughs and back-ins are easy to access. The long term residents in the park are all cordial and friendly. There are some organized activities but space is limited. We find this a very pleasant place to stay during our time out from Verde Valley and will return.

Management has changed and the staff is cordial and helpful. We were assigned a "long term" site due to the length of our stay this time. As ELS/TTN members during peak season the schedule changes, but we were able to remain in the site rather than move to another after the first week. Snake Hole Golf Course is fun as every. Member Services talked to us several times during our stay for our opinion on the changes in the facility and sites. We believe the park has changed significantly and recommend it to others. Member generated activities provide a ton of different things to do here, including organized QUAD excursions in the area. The park is close to everything, lots of trails, points of interest and good shopping. We will definitely stay here again next winter.

Staff here is friendly and helpful. Pull through sites are mostly for short stay campers, the remainder are long term residents. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Interior roads are paved. Water and Sewer can be a long reach with hookups uphill and at the rear of each site. Some sites have paved patios with picnic tables and benches. HDTV brings in several decent channels and our WiFi had a 4G signal as did the phones. CG is between I-40 and railroad; however, the noise isn't all that bad, didn't keep us awake. We find this a nice place to relax for a day or two and would return.

We were welcomed by the helpful and very courteous staff and escorted to our site. Overall condition of the camp hasn't changed much, maybe a little drier than our last stay. Utilities are an easy reach. Chose between 50 or 30 amp. 50 amp costs $3 per night. HDTV works well here but the channel selection is limited. Camp offers a satellite box to connect to their system which requires a direct connection, through a window or vent, free of charge. Restrooms are dated but kept very clean as are the laundry facilities. The camp is dirt and gravel with concrete patios for the pull-through sites. Utilities are conveniently located. The staff is great, very helpful and make one feel right at home. We have stayed here in the past and would do so again when in the area.

This is a mobile home community but with RV sites mixed in. Each site is level, concrete with adequate parking. We were placed in Space #1, next to the street, with a thick hedge separating the grounds from the street. When we started hookup the 50A outlet/breaker wasn't working and before I finished with setup and connecting utilities the staff had replaced the breaker. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Amenities are clean and well maintained. Shopping and restaurants are minutes away. We based here for access to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The noise from the surrounding neighborhood brought the rating down a bit but this is a nice place to stay and everyone is friendly. This CG is a pleasant surprise and we would return when in the area again.

This is the "off" season for this CG and we were given a premium drive-through site. WSE & CTV, daily garbage pick up and two complimentary rounds of golf per site on a quality golf course. Staff was terrific. This is an adult park well managed and quality in every way. Hedges separate sites and each site is concrete with patio area and ample parking for toad or tow vehicle. The pool and sauna is open and clean. We have enjoyed each stay here and will return.

CG is easily accessible from SR-99. Camp Host met us and cleared our site of leaves before we backed in and set up. Owner and Host are friendly and helpful. Cable TV is free and available but the provider has changed and a converter box is now required, available from the office, for access. There are no restrooms in the CG. Laundry is $1 wash and $.50 dry and very clean. Other CG amenities are available and clean. We enjoy this CG and will stop again when through the area.

Date of Stay:

Drive through sites are closed for the winter so there are only 7 sites open for camping. The sewer system empties into the city system and there are restrictions posted at the kiosk. The camp host was helpful and friendly. This campground is on the Rogue River with boat launch. The park has yurts for camping. There is parking for the park play area and a turn around for RV's to use when leaving the park. This is a peaceful place to rest and its fairly close to services and amenities. One dealer on the Redwoods Highway is selling propane at $2.09. We enjoy this park and stay here whenever we are in the area with the RV.

There is easy access via OR-213 to interior roads that are gravel/crushed rock. Sites are mostly level with plenty of parking space. CATV is free at each site. The lakes are for fishing only. There is playground equipment for kids. The office/Recreation building is neat and clean and a nice lounge with a roaring fire place. Staff is friendly and efficient. Exchange library is a little meager. Propane is available on site at $2.79. Services are minutes from your site and fuel prices are excellent. There are places to see and wineries to visit if interested. We have stayed here before and will return when through the area in the future.

Based on monthly rate. Electric at 9cents per KWH. Park is very clean and well maintained. Streets and sites are paved and utilities are well positioned. Lake is for fishing only, no swimming. Easy access and no problem towing through the park. Cedar shrubs between sites. Staff is friendly and helpful. Office is open for service 7 days a week. A quiet park and a nice location. The rating reflects the lack of activities available in the park. There is a nice hiking trail around the park and a nice playground for kids. We would return when in the area.

TTN rate. This park could rate higher if there was satisfactory TV and Wi-Fi reception. Our cell phones worked fine but the Wi-Fi hotspot at the lodge was stone cold, for nearly two weeks, and our cards were intermittent. Weekend breakfast OK. The staff was receptive but noncommital. Since the CG is treed and dark its a little dreary this time of year. This is our home park but we still have issues with condition of some of the amenities and facilities. Some sites do have full 50 amp water/sewer/electric upper sites. Most of the remainder don't have sewer. There are 3 dump stations on the way out. Fuel prices at service stations on the reservation are lower than those in surrounding towns. If you are looking for seclusion and peace and quiet (except for being in the flight path for Navy fighters in and out of Whidbey Island NAS) this is the place. We will return when the need to come back home overcomes us.

TTN Rate. The CG IS in transition and with new management has come a long way. One issue is the maintenance person who has a bad attitude and doesn't do as management instructs. There was a day when water was turned to the CG and Maintenance was supposed to notify each camper prior to the shut-off...did not happen! Manager is hampered by politics. The manager is doing a great job and is very friendly and helpful AND the CG is being brought up to standard, albeit slowly. Work is progressing on Wanapum dam, down river, and the crack should be repaired and water level coming back to normal around the first of the year. There are river views from many of the middle and lower sites and the Grand Coulee is fantastic. Laundry is really cramped and there is a major leak at one of the machines. Restrooms are dated but clean. Pool is clean and warm. Water pressure still isn't great at the sites and doing dishes or taking a shower requires patience. We enjoyed our stay here and would return.

Group rate for a week. Beautiful RV resort, ideal for group gatherings. Some sites are paved, some are gravel, but all roads are paved. The pool is equipped with handicap assist lifts, the restrooms and showers are spotless, the grounds are deep, lush grass. Picnic tables and benches in all sites, excellent playground area for kids. Facilities and Event Room can accommodate a large group. We had over 80 folks and there was plenty of room for many more. Utilities and hook-ups are conveniently located at each site and there is plenty of room for tow vehicle or toad in each site, as well. Laundry facility is sparkling and reasonable with 4 sets of machines. Owners and staff are fantastic, have a long range plan AND have shade trees (100+) ordered to be arriving soon. Even at standard rates this is a must stop. Our group has laid out reservations for each year, 10 years out, and we definitely will be coming back here.
