Very clean park, great welcome at desk, informative host. Lawns are quite nice, weeds that last reviewer talked about were cleaned up. Showers cost 25 cents for 5 minutes and they are beautiful, everything in one room for each user. We would drive out of the way to stay here again, instead of in Yakima or at the tribal park in Toppenish which is the same price.

We have stayed here before. This time we received a poor reception from the manager, long lecture and rules about the dog. You can't leave your dog in the RV and of course must poop scoop. Any infraction at all and you will be asked to leave the park. I was disappointed in the poor welcome when we were just arriving. I think people are sick of dogs and bad owners who won't clean up after them and leave them to bark. Our dog was quiet the entire time, but a drunk man in a van pulled in, passed out and left his radio on loud until I finally had to get the manager to reach in and turn off the engine as I wanted to get some sleep. There are droppings from trees that stick to your shoes and come into your rig. We will return but I frankly wish we had had a better reception.

We have stayed here before and this time the office was open late so we could obtain the WiFi code. The Cable had 15+ channels, not all the local channels come in. The sites are wide, separated and distant from the road noise. Only certain sites have cable and you must pay extra. Long 8/10 mile walk around RV park that many people are using, I doubt they all are staying here in the RV park...but good to see so much exercise. Each site has a trash can and there is recycling at the office which is nice (we are from Oregon). I recommend this campground over anything in Yakima proper...the next good town for camping is Ellensburg or on the Columbia River outside of Goldendale. We will return.

This RV park is a long strip of spaces with utilities that is part of the parking lot behind the motel. Part of the motel/hotel has been turned into various offices and people using those offices and the grocery store use the parking lot and the driveways to race through in their cars. It was noisy until night time. It is the only place in town so you get what you pay for. The place filled up by night time. I did notice a person dry camping in the front parking lot and I noticed a free camp behind the BLM office on the south end of town if one gets stuck.

A very clean park with lovely landscaping and neat, long pull thru sites. Some people look like they are here permanently but the park is very neat, not a lot of trash or belonging outside of units. The check in was efficient and rapid.

The price is much less if you stay for a month or more. We are here for 6 months. We love it, the folks are friendly and the grounds are beautiful. The park is complicated until you have been here awhile and the spaces are difficult to get into but there is an assistant. We love the dozens of activities, cards, pools, closeness to everything, dog areas, people, etc. We will return for the beautiful winters here in Arizona.

Very old park, we had a pull thru across the city street from the rest of the park, I think that is where the overniters stay: tight, long pull thru. Bathrooms are very old and funky and the shower costs a dollar. The manager is quite friendly. Worth the money. No internet or TV but we were able to receive a few channels on our antenna.

Cute little park with many full timers. We had some troubles with the fees. We were charged $5.00 per day for electricity and there was no hot water in the shower, which is why we stopped instead of boondocking. Made us pretty mad; they were having a temporary problem; would have appreciated knowing that beforehand. No TV. The manager is the nicest person to deal with thru email, etc., and was kind enough to send us a $6.00 refund for the electricity charge and the lack of hot water in the showers. She is a doll.

We think this is an average park and a little over priced...Wifi is dicey, no place to put your clothes in the shower area, "resort" is a stretch...management was nice. It was quiet, lanes were muddy after recent rain, full time areas mostly looked neat and well kept.

This campground is very small and we were told at the park entrance we would not be able to get our rig into it. We did find a spot for our 29 foot 5th wheel but we had to unhook. The asphalt is breaking down on the spurs, probably the entire campground needs to be revamped for larger RVs. There is an RV park nearby which is more expensive than this campground which gives us 1/2 price for out National Park senior pass. The area is beautiful, the bike trails are wonderful (and in wonderful shape) and the old hotels and gift shops are great. Can't beat Grand Canyon.

This park is half way fixed up and revamped and we didn't notice that so our site was unlevel and old, be sure to stay to the right when driving in and you will rate it a 10...they have reworked everything: level concrete sites, long enough for any rig. The bathrooms are still old. The lake is maybe a mile away now, it is sad.

park is closed, hotel was sold.

We have stayed at or visited the other regional parks in the Phoenix area and we like McDowell Mountain Regional park better than this. This is a long drive into the campground past the entrance. The entire park is on the side of a hill, which makes biking down to the nature center/library a problem. Good hikes around the place, with some strenuous hikes and bike trails included. I understand they recently added electricity and water at individual sites which is wonderful. Bathrooms are old, probably original and clean.

I will repeat what a previous review from a long time ago says: very cute and kitschy and wonderful owners who give each and everyone a great amount of attention. You are greeted warmly and taken to your site and then you return and pay. You can have satellite and the gentleman will bring the dish and set it up for you if needed (we needed it as the cord was damaged). I would highly recommend staying one night in this RV park just for the experience, and reservations are recommended.

As has been stated before, this is a large parking lot type of RV park. It is not near the river nor do you have much of a view unless you walk around the park. The permanent residents leave out tools, stuffed furniture, trash. That part of the park is a real eyesore. The manager was quite friendly and helpful to us. The pool and hot tub, although small, is very clean. We will be looking at other parks in the area. It is okay for the price and for an overnight stay.
