This is an RV park affiliated with a manufactured home community. Everything is well maintained, the RV portion has gravel roads and spaces with full hookups and up to 50 amp power available. Easy to maneuver in our 41' motorhome. Quiet even though adjacent to Highway 97 on south edge of Prince George. Wifi works well.

Date of Stay:

Back-in sites behind the motel. Check in was at a motel a block away, kind of a nuisance. Sewer hookup and fresh water connection were adjacent to one another. I bleached and did my best to sanitize the fresh water connection before connecting. This is a very poor situation.

Date of Stay:

This community is on hard times and the park reflects the economic reality of the area. What brings people to this community is the bear viewing platform provided by the U.S. Forest Service nearby. The park is basically a large gravel lot with standing water when it rains, which it did in abundance during our 3 day stay. The 30amp power was weak and our built-in surge protector kept kicking the off to our motorhome. Unfortunately, we had to use propane for heat and water heating to compensate. Mentioned the problem to the manager who didn't seem to want to deal with the problem.

Date of Stay:

We were initially planning to stay just overnight, but stayed for 3 nights because the park was so nice and well maintained. Owners live on site and are on task all day. The only downside was 30amp power only, some large potholes upon entering the park and little highway noise. Not objectionable at all. We felt this was an outstanding deal.

This is the most beautiful Provincial Park we have ever stayed in Canada. The setting is wonderful and the current park operators have manicured, cleaned and set out flowers that make this a destination. Our site was on gravel on the edge of the lake and we had 30amp power. Not all sites have power, but some are available. We had no problems maneuvering our 41 foot motorhome. A tremendous value.

Date of Stay:

It's great to find a National Forest Campground with full hookups, and 50amp at that! On the shores of Mendenhall Lake which is fed by the Mendenhall Glacier. Within 5 miles of the Alaska Ferry and about 10 miles from Juneau. The problem was the site layout, many were not level and the hookups worked very well with the exception of the sewer connection. Most of the sites we saw, the connection was uphill from the RV. We have a 41' motorhome and had to drive our front wheels up on blocks to get level, even with our leveling system. A great value nonetheless.

Previous reviews indicated this park may not handle big rigs over 38'. We have a 41' motorhome and access roads were very accessible, some spaces will not handle long length, but several will. Some spaces may be difficult to to get into, but we found several that handled us easily. This park is in a rain forest full of native Sitka Spruce and only a mile or so from the Alaska Ferry terminal. About 8-10 miles to town, but worth the drive. Dumping facility and fresh water near the boat launch facility in town. We enjoyed the setting and the trails.

We were pleasantly surprised. The other 2 parks we had checked online in the area were in the $40 range and we felt with this one being priced so low, it may be risky. Not so! Paved interior roads that we could handle with our 41' motorhome. Sites were a bit sloped and the length was very tight, but we easily made it work for us. All hookups were easily accessible, but a bit untidy. Overall, for the price, this was a remarkable deal. Situated between I-80 and a train yard, but we heard no objectionable noise from either. We will look forward to returning to this hidden gem.

We stayed here under Passport America and felt the rate to be very reasonable. The park is definitely dated, interior roads are a bit rough in spots and spaces are close together. What was outstanding for us and the reason for the higher score is the management and staff. They were most helpful and efficient at check-in, including the person who directed us to our site. Both of us were ill while here and they quickly and efficiently accommodated extending our time in our site even though the site had been reserved for the next day. Management is new and seems to be doing all the right things to achieve customer satisfaction. We will definitely return if in the area.

We are staying at the discounted rate through Passport America. What a great little park! Excellent first impression when driving into the registration area. Very nice on-site owners. The park is immaculate and well maintained. We will extend our stay just because it so nice. The owner gave us lots of local information about everything from historical sights to where to get local crawfish. Very large gassy sights - just a wonderful little park. They even have a pond stocked with fish that you may catch and release.

Date of Stay:

We were here under Resorts of Distinction and thoroughly enjoyed the park and the area. Many sites have wooden decks with great views of the Pend Oreille River. Staff very friendly and helpful. We wanted to stay longer, but the holiday weekend prevented us doing so. We will stay here again when in this area.

Date of Stay:

We stumbled on this park when we saw the exit sign with their information. A beautiful surprise, the sites were spacious and the park could have easily opted for more sites with all of the space so generously allowed for the customer. A great spot for an extended stay or just overnight. Some road noise, not disruptive though.

Date of Stay:

The pot holes in the road coming to the park are treacherous. They seem to be permanent and nothing being done to fix them. Park is quiet and a good distance from freeway. Beautiful setting with mountains all around. All the hookups and large level sites. The wi-fi is slow and intermittent, even though there were only 5 or 6 rvs in the park. Camp Club discount of $18 was a good deal.

Date of Stay:

This is a public park maintained by the city. The sites are spacious and layer out much like a commercial RV park, but with more space. Interior roads are gravel, but sites are level concrete pads with water, sewer 30/50 amp power at all sites. In the middle of a city park with a stream running through it.

Date of Stay:

Great for a short stay. All of the necessities plus close to Wichita. Mostly long term residents. Good WiFi and a nice neighborhood location. Level, gravel sites are close together.
