This is a delightful green, grassy park along the banks of the Columbia river just below the Chief Joseph dam. It is not busy when other parks are often full (unless the fishing is good, then it might be full). City park, with a host on site who is very nice and friendly. Quiet at night, except the fishermen might get up pretty early (like 3:00 am). The town doesn't have much to recommend it but the small grocery store is adequate and there are several Mexican stores that could be helpful with Mexican food you may be making. We will be sure to stop again on our way to Canada.

This park is a bit crowded to get into, everyone is lined up side by side perpendicular in close quarters. It is a small park that holds about 35 rigs and allows Passport America at all times. When we arrived there were about 5 sites left and it appeared that most folks were there for a long time, although I would not call them permanents, just staying for the season maybe. There is a good price on a monthly rate. There is a lot of extra room on the south side of RV park for cars to park and a big outdoor area with picnic tables, etc. There is a large building that is the "office" but it appears to be an old bowling alley, night club or something. Very curious. We felt safe here, everyone was friendly and helpful, I think we will return.

Older bathhouse/clean, and older office, wonderful greeting and welcome from hostess, with loads of additional information. The campground is a desert campground at the end of a long road into Crooked River Ranch. The campground is surrounded by a very good golf course. We found the campground to be a bit crowded with our back in right next to the next fellow. Crooked River Ranch is a very large desert community with 5+ acre lots so homes are few and far between and come in all styles, from large mini mansions and mobile homes to motor homes. No services to speak of on the Ranch so you should load up on groceries and fuel in Terrebonne. There is a small corner store about 1/2 mile from the campground but it is just like a gas station store. Large Walmart and Gas and other stores. Do not get this RV park mixed up with the more permanent RV park, River Rim RV park which is a passport America park and not as nice. The views are tremendous...

Park is a mixture of full timers who are clean and neat and people here for the summertime. All kinds of rigs but it is neat. The bathrooms are in an older building but are remodeled on the inside and beautiful. The big complaint is the Wifi which they admit is very crummy, unfortunately our Verizon did not work well either, perhaps because of the nearby small airport. I do not know if i would return, perhaps I would try another park down the road to see if my internet connection would be improved. There is a Walmart close by and a large park with walking and biking trails. The freeway is close but we did not hear it.

Not the greatest Oregon State Park, and there are some beauties but serviceable. Surprised to see all services out here in the middle of nowhere. There are two cabins and the park is in nice shape, especially the day use and the lush grass. Phones and internet do not work out here. Not much to do, a short walk/trail and swimming or fishing.

Date of Stay:

same as everyone else, excellent park with all you could want. They even use Tengo Internet and it works!! We will come back again as it is worth the drive past Boise to be here. Roses in front entryway are beautiful, lay out is excellent, wide streets, level spots. just love it.

Date of Stay:

Excellent, some beach areas near (southwest) the campground, however no beach or shore access in this campground, blocked off due to past erosion. Nice wide sites, some for two families. Quiet, some other campgrounds are a little noisier, especially as you get close to the lodge which is a zoo. The only criticism I have is that the speed bumps are onerous. Could be gentler.

Date of Stay:

Park looks like it is being remodeled. Looks like they lost most of their trees in the past and now the RV park has new, small trees. The sites are far apart and out in the open. The owners have been here for 2 years. The wifi ($2.00 extra) is very good, plenty of room for satellite.

Date of Stay:

As stated previously, owner is very kind and helpful; she guides you on foot to your site as you follow along behind her. We could not get too close to the river, it was running pretty fast, but maybe in the summer time it is slower and shallower. There is no WiFi as stated by previous reviewer. There is no TV but satellite works well. $1.00 extra for electricity and sewer....but what the heck!

Date of Stay:

Not all the sites are level but it is a cute, friendly part with lots of things for the children: mini golf, pool, etc. Only problem for me was the long wait for hot water. Would return for sure. Easy to use satellite TV.

Date of Stay:

Very nice people as all previous reviews remarked about. We visited the geothermal hot springs pool at the motel, worth the money: $7.00 for the soak time. This RV park is old but very clean and cute. We would return. See previous reviews for more information.

Date of Stay:

Oddly set up campground, rigs every which way, some on gravel, some on grass. Being on the grass with a pull thru is the prettiest. There are two toilets/showers for the entire park. They are new but get heavily used. I would advise calling ahead of time to clarify how long you can stay on Passport America; the owners are new and it is confusing. Nice people, some long term renters who seem to have families and are working in the area. The town has a lot of historical information, visitor centers to recommend it and a nice walking path along the river.

RV park is behind the Best Western, staff are friendly and helpful, WIFI is the best we have ever had in an RV park. Showers and restrooms are spectacular, also has laundry. No scenery except rolling hills and freeway, little traffic or train noise. golf course is good, walking trail north of town is an added bonus. Man o man can the wind blow! the dog loves watching the black birds attack the prairie dogs, it is like TV.

Date of Stay:

Clean but old. nice people in the office, very friendly staff and very helpful with travel ideas into the park. Beautiful views, a bit of a leveling challenge. the only problem I had was that the restrooms and laundry are down the hill from the RV park. Perhaps I would get electric and water only on the level grass right near the office. Wifi was dicey, but our Verizon worked very well. Fills up early and no refunds on reservations. This park is about $15.00 cheaper than KOA.

Date of Stay:

Pull thru site uneven so had to re-park several times. Laundry and showers clean and nice. Game room open all nite, playground, and walking/hiking up behind park. nice proprietor and good value for dollar. Wifi available on and off. would go back.
