This is an almost perfect little park, well maintained and managed. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There are only about 25 sites, and they are on the small side, but all are paved and the utilities are good. The park is very nicely landscaped. Restrooms/showers are a bit small, but are immaculate. The wifi system was fairly good most of the time. It was a pleasure to stay here and we would certainly return. It is best to have reservations; the park was full both times we stayed here. Sequim has some very good restaurants. Try Blondie’s and the Alderwood Bistro.

When reviewing this park one really needs to consider the location, Forks, WA. This is truly a “middle of nowhere” location and there are few RV parks to choose from. But, with that in mind, here are my thoughts. On the positive side, the staff was friendly and helpful, but the park is fairly primitive and bit rundown. There is a road that runs down the center of the park for several blocks. The back-in sites are near the front while the pull-throughs are near the back. Back-in sites are on coarse gravel, while the pull-throughs are on grass. Near the end of the road, and across from the pull-through sites, are some old double-wide trailers, some of which have seen better days. There is also a nearby shooting range, which is much louder toward the back of the park, but then road noise from highway 101 is more noticeable in the front. So you have a choice! Gun shots or logging trucks. But this is only during the day. The place is very quiet at night. The bathrooms are separate from the showers. Both are primitive (bare concrete floors and unfinished plywood walls), but appeared to be reasonably clean. However, you have to pay $0.25 per 5 minutes to take a shower! There are only 2 showers and two toilets. I would classify the latter as “semi private.” The wifi is horrible… on and off connectivity. It sort of sucks you in and then just as your favorite site or email is loading, it drops. But we found that if you sat at the picnic bench in front of the office the wifi was fairly good. And then there is the pet policy. They charge extra for pets. Given the condition of the park, it is hard to imagine why. There seems to be a fair number of loose dogs in the area. We were told that the owners are new and are trying to improve the park and it is apparent that some work is being done, but the place has a long way to go. We would probably not return. Next time we’ll try some of the national park camping sites in the area.

This is a nice park with paved roads and well kept spaces. Most of the sites are back-in, but they do have some pull-throughs also. All the sites have concrete pads, and there is also a concrete pad for your vehicle. You can have a choice between grass and gravel sites and both are nice. Park guides take you to your site and help you park. Some are more adept than others, but overall the park staff was friendly and helpful. Garbage is picked up at the curb daily. No cable, but over the air reception is good. Most of the networks are available including PBS. The Wi-Fi is fairly good, but varies in throughput depending on the time of day. The park is walled and there is a security gate, but a friend's bike was stolen while we were there. It was not locked. Be sure to secure everything. Overall though, the park felt safe and it is located in a fairly nice neighborhood. It is also close to downtown Indio and the fairgrounds. The only negative is the length of time it takes for an escort to come and lead you to your space. For us it was about 20 minutes. The park's roads are relatively narrow, and can be blocked for an extended period, depending on how long it takes someone to back in their RV. They should adopt the FMCA/LazyDays method for backing in; it would be a lot easier. It was hard to determine if the delay may also be a function of the number of escorts, since it appeared that much of the delay was due to blocking of the roads while backing in.

This is a beautiful park with all paved roads and sites. It is definitely upscale and is truly a resort. The park is very clean and well maintained with helpful staff. It is a very nice to walk around. The only problem was the Wi-Fi, which was unusable. This was made worse by the fact that our Verizon aircard would not work in this area due to poor reception. We would stay here again.

This is a relatively new park which is close to I-40. However, when we were there, construction on I-40 forced a less convenient detour to reach the town. You enter the park through a dirt road adjacent to the parking lot of a local restaurant. When we were there, it had just rained and there was a fair amount of standing water. We could not get the shore power to "take" in our coach. The transfer switch would not accept it for some reason. We tested the power at the pedestal and it seemed OK. We tried several pedestals, but none would work for our coach. So we drove on to another park in Texarkana, TX. At that park we had no problem with the shore power, nor at any of the 6 subsequent parks we stayed at since then. The owner of the park was very helpful during our brief stay. We're not sure the power problem was with the park, since there were other rigs there. In addition to the power issue, the place has a lot of fire ants. All in all, it was not a pleasant experience. We would not stay here again.

This is one of nicest RV parks we have experienced. The roads are gravel, but unlike most RV parks, they have used a lot of gravel. The park is very clean and well maintained. The small lake really makes it a pretty place to walk around. The only thing we don't like is the narrow, but paved road that one has to use to get to the park from I-40. We have stayed here previously and will certainly return.

This is an exceptionally nice park. We have stayed here in the past. It has excellent utilities, and the Wi-Fi is much better than it has been in the past (very good, actually!). All the streets are paved with gravel sites, but they usually rake the gravel after a tenant has left. The sites are generous in size. It is close to I-10, but noise is not an issue. Try Nellie's Café in Las Cruces (open only for breakfast and lunch) for the best Mexican food in town and perhaps elsewhere too! We would stay here again.

There are dirt roads through the park, but concrete pads. The pads were the nicest part of this park. We would give it a higher rating, but the voltage was very high, 130 volts overnight. It's better than voltage which is too low, but still it should be lower. The Wi-Fi was poor. We stayed here overnight only, but would not stay here again due to the high voltage. We also had a very poor meal at nearby Tuck's BBQ, which was recommended by the park.

This is a very nice park. All the streets and sites are paved. It is well maintained and very clean with decent Wi-Fi, with very helpful and friendly staff. We would stay here again.

We have stayed the night here several times on our trips across Texas. It's quiet with good utilities (including good Wi-Fi), and friendly and helpful staff. They appear to have only about 10 transient sites. Most of the times we have stayed here, they have been close to full so it is best to call ahead. The only thing we don't like is the dirt surface of the roads and sites. It is clean, but not fancy by any means. It is a decent place for an overnight stay when passing through the area, with beautiful sunset views. We would stay here again.

This is a fairly small park with 22 back-in sites on the shore of the Portage River. The river is quite wide here; probably about 1/3 mile across. The sites have a nice view of Hancock, MI across the river. Each site has a picnic table on a covered deck looking out at the river. Sites are fairly small and blacktopped. They are not as level as we'd like, but by positioning the coach carefully we were able to make it work. Utilities were some of the best we have seen. Wi-Fi was good. The entrance road is very narrow, but not a significant issue. The adjacent city park is nice, but small and no dogs allowed (in the city park), but one can walk along the river for a mile or so past the park. The RV park was full while we were there, and even to get three days we had to move once. Make reservations well in advance! The park staff was very nice and most helpful.

This is a huge park with over 600 camping sites. From where we were parked, it was too far to walk to the dumpsters and the office. On the positive side, the park is managed well. There are lots of campers of all sorts including tents, trailers, etc. Given the number of campers, it was surprisingly quiet at night. Overall it is well maintained, but it is showing its age in some areas. The 50-amp site we had was large and the utilities were good. Sites are mowed weeds for the most part. Water pressure was about 30psi. This is a popular place to stay when visiting Mackinac Island for the day. The Star Line ferry company provides shuttle transportation from the park to the ferry and back, including a trailer to take bicycles to the Island. Mackinac Island is certainly worth a visit. Wi-Fi service in the park was poor, most likely volume related as network signal strength was fine.

This park is near the interstate with easy access via a mile or so of paved, but narrow, road that parallels the freeway. Considering its proximity to the highway, there is not a lot of noise. The first thing we noticed was all the green space, acres of grass, great place to run the dog. They only have a few pull-through transient sites, but when we were there during midweek, there was only one other coach. The sites are very large with a gravel/grass parking area. They were close to being level. There are a lot of seasonal campers here, but almost all the RVs were in good condition and they didn't detract from the park. The park is old and this was shown in the utilities. The site we were assigned had a circuit breaker box that was just hanging from the end of plastic conduit for lack of a screw to affix it to the backing post. The threads on both water faucets were defective and we had to connect to water in an adjacent site. The ownership of the park changed recently and hopefully these problems will be repaired soon. The park has a lot of potential for one-night stays. There is no Wi-Fi and marginal service with Verizon.

This was a very nice park south of Superior, WI. The sites are really meant for smaller rigs like tents and trailers. We did rent an electric/water site, but didn't stay in it because it was too confining. The park allowed us to park on an open grassy parking area adjacent to site 1. We boondocked there. The parking area has a beautiful view of the lake and is an easy walk to the nearby falls. It is a very quiet park. Roads are paved, but narrow. Sites are grass. It is a nice place, but we would not return as it is not meant for anything larger than about 30 feet.

Nothing fancy, but the park was very well maintained and managed. No lake views from the sites, but they are large (grass) and the utilities were good. Roads are gravel. They do have cable, but we didn't use it. There is lake access and lots of grass around the park. It was a great place to walk the dog. We would definitely stay here again. The owners were very nice.
