The park is a mobile home park with an RV park in front of it. The RV part is mostly comprised of long term residents with many units being junky. However they do have a number of sites for travelers. All are long pull thrus with a cement slab for a patio. The sites are very long so the biggest of rigs will fit along with your tow vehicle. The stagger the sites so that one is towards the back of the site and the next is toward the front. So when you walk out of your rig your neighbors car will be parked, not their rig. Makes it nice so you do not see into your neighbors trailer. Sites are gravel but have a cement pad for the rig. Roads are paved. They say they have Wi-Fi but we did not use so not sure if there is a charge and how well it works. Some trees so you can have a shaded spot. We chose a more open spot to get satellite reception. Right off Boulder Highway near Boulder Station Casino. No issues with road noise or any security issues in the park during our weekend stay. Fantastic value at $18 per night for full hookups, 50 amp.

Not much to say about this park. It offers a dozen or so 100 foot pull thrus with 50amps and full hookups. Small park and looks very dated. It is overpriced at $40 per site except that they accept PA for two nights and Good Sam for all nights. So for $20 it was a good value. Space is dirt with grass in between. Our site was very level. No trees in the pull thru area. It is a great overnight park as it right off I-15 and with the PA rate it is a good value.

A dated KOA but adequate for a stop over. The pull thru sites are very long. You can park your big rig and at least two cars in the space. The downside is the spaces are alternating so you share connections with your neighbor, meaning that neighbor is very close and your other neighbor is your buddy, within 15 feet. I do not like this type of arrangement as you have no privacy with your buddy. Most of the property is grass with worn spots for some spaces and the road being dirt. Some trees on property but mostly the sites are open allowing for satellite use. Wi-Fi was free and worked great. For the area it is probably over priced but this is typical for KOA.

Park appears to be fairly new. It has a all dirt/gravel (roads and sites). Each site is very large with ample spacing between each which includes a patch of astro turf and a small tree. Our site did require a little leveling as spots had sunk, probably due to rain. I could see this place being very dusty with wind and possible muddy if it rains. We used it for an overnight stop so it was just perfect. Wi-Fi was free and worked well.

Park is fairly large with lots of shade trees yet does have some open sites for satellite users. Sites seem to be of varying sizes but they do have a number of large sites (pull through and back-in) that will handle big rigs and tow vehicle. Roads are paved, sites are gravel or grass with grass in between each. I felt the big rig sites were too close together. Our site was level. Wi-Fi was free and worked well during our stay. They have two nice size pools. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were here to renew our South Dakota licenses so the owners were very helpful in preparing the necessary document for us to submit and giving us advice on the local DMV (Wednesday only). Nice place to stay to visit Spearfish, Sturgis and Deadwood.

What a gem of a park. Immaculately maintained, great views, long level spaces and good Wi-Fi that is free. This is a great overnight park where you can also do some sightseeing, as the Little Bighorn Battlefield is just 4 miles away. Park is all rock with grass and a tree between each site. The parks is terraced on a hill so the views of the prairie are just fantastic. Staff is very friendly and helpful, including a free ice cream treat at check-in. I would have given the park a 10 except I believe they are a little over priced for the area. There is some train horn noise but it is in the distance and, for us, not really bothersome.

Park is fairly large, located not far from the highway and the shopping area. It appears that most of the sites are occupied by long term tenants. We only stayed for an overnight and the park appeared nice. Roads are dirt/gravel as are the sites with grass between each. It appears there is a newer section as the trees are small, which is where we stayed for satellite access. Sites are level and long enough to handle big rigs and tow vehicles. WiFi was free and was OK for basics. It did keep kicking us off in the evening when use is heavy. They warn you about this when checking in. It was a good overnight stay.

This is a no frills park. The sites are hodge podge of services. Some have full service (30 amp only), others only have water/electric and some are dry camping. We stayed in the pull-through section and the site was not long enough to handle our 40 foot fifth wheel and truck. The truck had to be parked sideways and hang over into the roadway. The biggest issue with this park is how they laid out the connections. The water and electric are shared with two spaces. So one space has to have a lot of hose and cord and it has to go under or around their rig to get to the connection. Each has a sewer connection in the back on the side you need it, but it is at the back of the space and, for us, was going uphill. Roads are dirt/gravel as are the spaces. They are fairly close together with grass in between. With all the land they have they could have done a much better job with spacing and layout of connections. It worked well for our visit during the Stampede, especially since they have a shuttle ($10) directly to the park. You are bit away from the city. The Calaway Amusement park is part of the property so I assume the park is mainly occupied during the Stampede and on weekends during the summer for those going to the amusement park. Otherwise not much reason to stay here.

Park is rustic. All the spaces are set in the woods, with some backing up to the river below. Sites are well spaced, with lots of trees and are generally long enough to handle any kind of rig. Most of the roads are paved and the sites are gravel. The roads are narrow and you do have to be very mindful of the trees both when turning and getting into and out of the space. We needed to cut some branches as they would impact our roof, and some bushes that hit our slide when opened. Our site did not require much leveling and amazingly was able to receive a satellite signal due to the positioning of the space. Very nice park, but they do need to keep up with the trees and bushes. Wi-Fi is free but does not make it to the sites so you have to go to the restrooms, where the access points are, to access the Internet.

Nicely maintained park right on the edge of Soap Lake. Appears park is fairly old but is undergoing renovations. Roads are paved with sites being gravel or dirt. Fairly dusty in the non renovated spaces as they are dirt. Turns are tight and roadways can be a little narrower. Many trees throughout the park but they are nicely trimmed to not impact rigs except for placement near turns. Our site was level but the park does slope towards the back so for motorhomes there is going to be significant front to back leveling. Decent spacing between site. Long lake front beach and a nice pool. None of the sites are on the lake so the "lake view" is from a distance. At full price I think it is over priced, but they do take Passport America and Good Sam, which makes it a much better value. Wi-Fi is free and worked good during our stay. Even with the trees we were able to use our roof mounted satellite dish. Not many campers during our stay so it was quiet and relaxing.

Park is very nicely maintained. It is completely surrounded by very large trees. The spaces are situated around a series of ponds in the park so that most sites are back-in to the ponds. Many trees throughout the park along with hedge rows at most spaces used as a privacy curtain. All are nicely trimmed with no impact on rigs. Roads are paved and sites are pavement or concrete. Sites vary in length and width with some being a little tight. Grass between spaces. It appears the majority of sites are occupied by permanents but are very nicely kept up, however most of them have two vehicles so the park can feel cramped in the evenings and weekends. Wi-Fi is free but we had difficulty connecting. Verizon service is weak, so data was slow. The offer cable but we were able to use satellite. Most sites are satellite friendly, but make sure to request it when reserving. Very near everything in the town of Bothell and close to a Park and Ride for the express bus to downtown Seattle. Very nice place to stay when in the Seattle area.

Beautifully maintained park. Roads are paved and sites are concrete. Spaces designed to handle big rigs with a spot to park your tow vehicle. Good spacing between sites comprised of grass. Lots of trees and bushes throughout the park but neatly trimmed so they do not impact the rigs. Park is on three levels so if you want to use your satellite dish you need to mention it when making reservation as they do have spaces that are satellite friendly. Some road noise if you are on the top level and there is some airplane noise as the park is near the take off route from a nearby municipal airport and in the landing pattern for Portland International. We noticed the noise but it was not constant and was not noticeable in the rig. Wi-Fi is free and worked OK during our stay. It is Tengo so it is a little slow and your data usage is monitored to throttle you if you use to much. Easy access to the interstate and close to downtown Portland. They offer monthly rates but no weekly rates. Excellent park to stay when in the Portland area.

Interesting park to review. It is carved out of a hill next to US 101 just across from the ocean. Some of the spaces are actually surrounded by the hillside. The plus is that many of the spaces have great views of the ocean. The minus is the road noise from US 101. It appears to be a fairly old park but is well maintained. Many of the spaces have been upgraded to 50 amp service. Most sites are long enough for big rigs and tow vehicle and most are very wide, allowing for good spacing between neighbors. There are many trees and bushes but appear to be well trimmed so as not to impact rigs. Roads are dirt/gravel and sites are dirt/gravel/grass. Ours was very level and allowed for satellite use. They have cable and free Wi-Fi (very slow). Staff was very friendly. Verizon service was very weak. Walkway to beach, but you do have to cross US-101. Views are just fantastic. Great value.

Basic park right next to the river. An open grass field with paved spaces and paved roads. Nice views of the river with back-in spaces available for river views. Spaces could be a little longer to hold big rigs and tow vehicle. Paved pad could be a little wider as it just held our rig allowing our jacks and tires to be on pavement. No WiFi. The downside of the park is the road noise from US-101 as it is only 100 feet from the first row of spaces. During our stay it was not distracting. All the parks in town seem about the same and are also close to 101. This park took the PA rate for our 3 night stay so a very good value for a full hook-up pull thru site. Nice stop over to see the redwood parks.

Park is mainly for permanents and they are located in two different areas of the park. Up front there are a handful of spaces available for travelers. There is one pull thru (space 17). Half the sites are concrete, the rest gravel. Spaces have great views of the mountains and valley and there are lots of trees. Interior roads are paved. Road into park is steep with a couple of sharp turns but was not a problem if you take it slow. Trees were not a factor, nor were they in the park. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is free and worked great during our stay. Highly recommend getting space 17, pull through, for the great view and the ability to use satellite TV. Very close to a great wine tasting region. This is a nice little park that I would recommend.
