This is the most expensive KOA we have stayed at in all the years we have been camping. Everything on the Monterrey Bay is expensive so I guess this is par. Since we are KOA members we got the 10% discount and still paid over $60. The park is very compact and spaces are as close together as they could get them. There is a little grass here and there and all the site are paved. Surprising though even with the paved sites they are no where near level. Most sites need lots of leveling. There are only two uni-sex bath shower combos so be prepared to wait to use the bathroom or shower. The best thing about this park is the nearby marina and a few good local restaurant. Phil's Fish Market which was featured on the Food Network's, Bobby Flay Throw-down is a local favorite and well worth the time to stop here for lunch or dinner. The Cippino is their featured dish.

Nice park overall. Paved sites, with patio and table, clean bathrooms, showers, and a very nice pool. Lots of grass but beware of the sprinklers over night that might spray your rig while you sleep. A bit on the pricey side but considering the location and easy access to US 101 and the remote location in Northern California it's a good stop. Bring lots of quarters as the wash is $2 and the dryer is also $2 but washers are normal size (not Barbie size) and there are lots of washers and dryers, no waiting. Interesting situation at the pool--after dark there seems to be bathing suits were optional with a number of guest that seem to know each other. Since the management at the front desk was gone home for the evening we thought this might not be approved by the local park management.

As with most of the Oregon State Parks Harris Beach is nice and a very enjoyable park for camping. The bathrooms/showers are clean and distributed through the park. There is no WiFi but good Verizon connection with Brooking only about 2 miles away. The camp sites nearest the ocean have a nice view but are in high demand. This is a busy campground that remains full throughout the camping season and even now late in Sept is still almost full every night. The campsites in the back of the park are near the highway have some road noise and there is a plant of some sort on the main highway that operates heavy equipment that can be heard in a distance M-F. All in all this is a nice State Park. Would stay here again.

This is the cleanest park that we have ever stayed in as it is all concrete with no lawn, and no dirt or gravel. All level pull troughs or back in and all have full hookups. Sites are close to each other but there is enough room to open slides and walk around one's unit. The laundry room is $1.75 for wash and $1.25 for dry. There are only three "barbie" washing machines and three dryers for this rather large park. We had to wait in line to use the machines which took a number of hours to do our wash. This is a nice park for what it is, a large parking lot with a little tree bushes between the sites. Good for a one night stop that is close to town. Not a destination place for sure.

Cape Disappointment State park is a very nice Washington State Park. All the roads and sites are paved and are all level. Most sites are lined with trees or bushes which offer some a little privacy on many sites. The sites are spaced about 25-30 feet apart so that they are not right on top of each other. The showers are $.50 for 3 minutes so bring lots of quarters for that long hot shower. Showers were okay but you will want to wear your showers shoes as the shower floor is just concrete. There is no Verizon 3G service or phone service at all so do your email and make your phone calls before arrive at the park. There is a pay phone if one needs to make a call. There is no cable TV but I was able to get three very fuzzy TV stations from Portland on my batwing antenna. Many sites are not satellite friendly so the TV might have to stay off while at this park. The camping sites are over a mile from the gate where you check in and miles from the nearest town. We noticed a number of good hiking trails in the park and the beach is nearby for exploring. There is a hiking trail that goes to the nearby town of Itwaco that is a few miles away and a trail also goes out to the famous lighthouse. We stayed at this park 25 years ago and they have made many improvements since our last stay. The Coast Guard rough water rescue training unit is nearby. The Park Ranger that checked us in was very nice but when we extended a day the second Park Ranger had an attitude and was only there for the paycheck.

This is an interesting park to review. The RV park is next to the marina and shares the showers and bathrooms facilities with it. The spaces are close together and are very basic dirty gravel spots with dead grass here and there. We stayed in one of the 'premium' spots that face the sound which gave us a gorgeous water view and the ferry going in and out of Port Townsend. So considering our view I would rate our spot 10/10 but the average sites throughout the park I would only rate a 6/10. This park is easy walking distance to the town of Port Townsend which is a neat little town with lots to see and do. Good restaurants, bars, and shops. One note if you stay here when the weather blows in the park is very exposed to the sound and the wind howls big time all day and all night. Verizon is good here.

Nice park, with lots and lots of lawn. All sites are paved as well as all roads. Very clean park to stay. Lost of green grass between each site and all facilities are as they should be. Easy place to park and setup. Showers are clean but the push button to run shower for like 30 seconds then push the button again and again seemed to be too much. This park was far enough off I-90 that the traffic noise was in a distance and not too bad. Found the group shower to be a bit interesting. There were three showers with a group drying/dressing area. There was a younger couple that was using the shower as a uni-sex shower and found the arrangement to be a bit interesting. Can't be too modest here. Everyone drying off and dressing seemed a bit European.

A well used very large KOA. All park roads are paved and the sites are all level and gravel with a little grass. Had a well stocked store and laundry was large. Everything was good overall and we would stay here again. The staff was very nice and keep things moving as many were checking in due to the size of the park.

This was a very nice place to camp for the night. All gravel drives, and sites with very little grass. There were only a few bushes and no trees or shade at all anywhere in the park. All site are fully exposed. Verizon worked good as did the park Wi-Fi. Had a very nice boat launch, and docks with rental boats. Showers/bathrooms were very modern and clean. Park is a very old park that was completely rebuilt in the last ten years so all facilities are very modern on the shore of the lake. Would stay here again.

This is a nice KOA with an excellent staff, grass and gravel campsites that are level. Beautiful views of Paradise Valley mountains. They have a well stocked gift shop and an enclosed heated swimming pool. This KOA is located way off the highway and is very quite. It's just a bit pricy but it's Yellowstone and a KOA so I guess it's par. Would stay here again.

This KOA is okay for a few days. Bathrooms/showers are average older KOA but clean and are fine. Lots of trees and shade and grass between the gravel sites. Camp hosts are great and very nice. Train tracks are not far away and heard a couple of trains overnight. Not a big deal since we like trains. The park is located near enough to the old rustic downtown area that one can walk to town. Campground is on the Yellowstone river and a nice setting overall. Some older in town neighborhoods are nearby by which makes for an interesting drive to the park. Also there is some dump truck traffic behind the park within view of the main camping area with stays busy M-F during the day. Not a big deal though. We would stay here again.

Nice campground overall. Sites are simple grass covered sites with some dirt, not bad though. Nice laundry, and very nice, and new, bathrooms and showers. Hosts were a very nice retired couple, and full of life and joked with us. 60 and older gets the senior discount as we did.

Not a bad place to stay for the night. It's convenient to the Interstate, casino, and has full hookups. Security is good and sites are level. Not a big deal place but great for an overnight. Would stay here again. Bathrooms in casino, no showers.

This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed at in some time. Some of the sites have a million dollar view of the lake and all sites are pretty level with gravel. The road through the park is paved. There is lots and lots of well kept lawn throughout the park. Bathrooms/shower are extremely clean and very well kept. Camp hosts are the most friendly we have encountered in years and couldn't do enough to help us find the perfect site with probably the best view of the lake (#10). Other reviews of this park made us think there were full hook ups at every site, but there are only full hookups at only two sites. The rest of the sites have only electrical and our site had only 30amp service. There is a nice dump station and water for filling your tanks. Very highly recommend staying at this park.

Overall a nice KOA as compared to the KOA's we have stayed at in our travels. Had a well stocked store, very friendly and helpful staff. Site was the normal crushed rock site and roads. Our site was level and most sites looked level or very close to level. A few sites has trees. The pool looked like it was closed for the season and was somewhat green.
