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.

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.

Golden Age Passport rate. The Forest Service maintains this CG 19 miles west of Baker City on RT 7. The CG is divided into 3 or 4 separate sections and A is the only with full hook-ups. Some sites are paved, most are not but plenty of room and privacy site to site. Restrooms are clean but no showers and no other amenities. Camp Hosts in each section are friendly, courteous, and helpful. The Phillips Lake is down to 20% of capacity for irrigation in the valley below. Boat launch is possible only at the dam, the ramp from the CG is high and dry. This CG is a pleasant surprise and is remote. Baker City is closest for services, 19 miles away. Shoreline Hiking Trail isn't any where close to the shoreline as the water is so low but it is a pleasant hike or bike ride. Lots of Pine Trees make satellite reception near impossible but cell phones are intermittent. This was a pleasant stop and we would return.

Good Same discount. Right next to the Boise Hawks stadium and fairgrounds. Gravel throughout. Pull-through sites with dividers (some with grass). The park puts you in a divided site, RV on the left of the divider and the toad or tow vehicle on the right. That means the next site parks their RV next to your vehicle. The park has changed the parking arrangement recently and it does work...puts a patio between your RV and your toad or tow vehicle. Other than laundry, showers and restroom there are no amenities or activities in the park. The hiking/biking trail along the river can be accessed from the park property. The park is kept in nice condition but there just aren't any extras. Wi-Fi is spotty. Our cellular devices pulled in a full 4G signal and HDTV reception is great. Cell phones worked here. There are a number of stores and other shopping nearby. Heavy traffic during week days, AM & PM. This isn't a terrible place to stay but the lack of on-site activities options isn't good. This is Garden City, too, not Boise. We probably would return if in the area.

Lots of issues. First, the sign indicating the entrance to the RV Park is missing. When approaching the park look for the gravel pit and turn there, first road, before the mobile home dealership. Two, the upper road has a gaping hole as the result of a mud slide which went down into the RV Park below and buried 7 of the sites 4 weeks ago. Clean-up still has a way to go. Three, the exit road, at the time of the main slide, had a series of slides which totally closed/blocked the exit. After cleanup the condition is still pretty bad as each time it rains more debris, rock and mud comes down onto the road and makes it really difficult to pull up the hill. Four, sites flood each time it rains...up to 6 inches of water in the west sites. Pets are allowed to run although the park says "no" and feces on the grass near the picnic shelters is gross. Quiet, yes; secure, no; the slides are a real bother. Pit toilets and no showers. City dump station about a mile away on Washington. I don't think we will return here. Pretty park, yes, and lots of walking and biking trails, on Rock Creek. Well maintained and quiet, most of the time. Just doesn't feel good, looking up at the very unstable hill side above your RV and wondering when the next slide will take place. No, we won't return.

Fee includes daily park access fee. Smoky Mountain CG is remote from actual Castle Rocks Idaho State Park and is at the entrance to the City of Rocks National Reserve. The park is jointly operated by NPS and Idaho Parks. This CG is paved and mostly level with gravel 24X16 patios and fire pits with metal picnic tables, all in good shape. The water comes from park wells, the power stanchions and water are near the middle of the site. Site 15 was equipped with 50 & 30 amp. I didn't check the others in this CG. There is plenty of privacy and other comments about sites 14-15-16 are petty. These sites are better separated than those in many CG we have visited, and nicer overall. The showers/restrooms are spotless and cleaned frequently. The dump station is down the road from the CG but well located. This is one of the most used rock climbing destinations in the USA and there are primitive campsites throughout the Reserve, all with picnic tables, and there is a deep water well/hand pump at Emery Pass picnic area. This CG is on the old California Trail portion of the Oregon Trail, dating back to 1830. CG is well maintained and clean, rangers are always around if needed, throughout the park, and we would return if in the area.
