Very nice campground in rural Courtenay. The graveled sites are large enough and for the most part are level, with many receiving some shade. There isn't too much privacy between sites, but as the planted trees mature this should provide some screening. Each site has a fire pit. There are clean and modern washroom with a 4 minute shower costing $1. The communal building is nearly complete and usable with a fantastic fire place with a large screen TV. Fly fishing is available for $15. There are stores are a 10 minute drive away. Wi-Fi was excellent and was free. This CG is a very nice, quiet retreat. We will definitely stay here again.

Check-in is easy with parking at the office for only two rigs. The roads are a little narrow which makes for difficult two way traffic. There are a lot of sites which are in the trees and are heavily shaded. Others with a water view and the remainder on the water. There are long-term residents located in the centre of the campground and some of the rigs are looking old/dirty. The area we stayed in had rigs facing the water and the rigs behind would be tiered higher so they also had an unobstructed water view. There are about 10 sites with 50 amp service but none at the lower sites facing the water. There is a new children's park area with camp sites scattered around so parents can watch their kids. Staff runs around the campground on golf carts keeping on eye on things. We will definitely stay here again

This is a beutiful park in a quiet area of rural Courtenay. The gravel sites are level and large with plenty of space in between sites. The existing CG has large shade trees. A new part of the CG has 2 locations with about 12 sites centred around a large fire ring (think wagon wheel). These sites are primarily for groups that camp together. It will take a few years for planted trees to mature in this area. There is excellent WIFI for $2 per day. There is also a stocked trout pond where there is fly fishing for a fee. The owner has nearly finished a large communal building complete with a fireplace where groups can gather in the summer or fall. The doors roll up like a garage allowing the space to be almost outdoor. There is a great area beside the CG for nature walks. And CourtenayComox and the Military Base is close. We will definitely stay here again

The check in was easy and staff was friendly. There is a common room with a pool table and Ping-Pong table. There is a very small room with some exercise equipment. The sites are mostly pull through and are wide, long, level and concrete. They can easily accommodate a bigger rig and tow vehicle. There is plenty of room between sites but no real privacy between sites. There is some noise from trucks working at a warehouse behind the park, and on the opposite end of the park there is an endless stream of homeless males walking/biking along a bush path to an older RV park next to this one. There is a nice outdoor seasonal pool and covered hot tub. The showers and washrooms are used by swimmers and although private they were not in order. The washrooms had been used all day by swimmers. The only thing that struck me as missing was live plants and some shrubbery among the sites. There are a lot of full timers here who are friendly and keep their sites in order. There is noise from the I-5 and a train which runs at night. This is a good park to stay overnight.

Would have given a 10, but the pull thrus aren't long enough to hold our 5th wheel and pick up. The sites, concrete and level are pretty close together as well, but there is full size picnic table and lush green grass with shrubbery. There is a very nice pool and hot tub. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. There was about 30 plus cable TV stations. There is a movie shown each evening in the resorts media room and the laundry is open 24 hrs and at a reasonable price. The washrooms are very clean and have about 6 private and roomy showers. Although there is a little noise from the main road, considering that the park is minutes away from downtown Salem, it is hardly noticeable. There is a path on one side of the park which was full of blackberry's ready for picking. We will definitely stay here again.

This is beautiful park in the Willamette National Forest. The owner met us and actually remembered us from last year. Registration was quick. Our pull thru was plenty big with a concrete level pad complete with a large grassed area with a full size picnic table. The front pull thrus face the Willamette River, which apparently has fish. The washrooms and showers are clean and the WIFI is very strong. There are about 12 cable channels. There is a common covered area complete with fridges and BBQs where families and groups can gather. There is also a soft ice cream machine which the owners have provided on the honor system ($1). There is also a pool. There is plenty of off road mountain biking, hiking and other outdoor activities. The longest covered bridge in Oregon is located minutes away in Westfir. There is a small town close by with access to groceries and other minor services. There is train that rolls thru a couple of times a day, but it didn't bother us. We stayed here in a 5th wheel.

Everything about this RV park is first class. The registering was quick and although there were a number of large rigs registering there is plenty of parking. The staff escorts you to your site. The sites are large, level concrete and most are shaded. The indoor pool is clean and the equipment in the exercise room is very good and modern. The washrooms are very clean and and each washroom contains its own toilet, sink and large tiled shower. The laundry is located at either end of the park and are very clean and inexpensive. We didn't use the WIFI. There is a shuttle that picks folks up and drives them to the nearby casino/hotel.

This is a first rate resort surrounded by water on 3 sides. The staff were friendly and helpful getting us registered and to our site. The sites are large, concrete and level with both good sized pull throughs through the center of the resort and back ins on the perimeter. The washrooms/washer/dryers are located in one of two large and bright buildings located strategically to serve the resort. The cost of washing/drying is a little on the high side of average. There are no noisy ATV's permitted to drive through the resort. The WIFI is good. There are some great things to do around the resort to keep busy.

We made our reservations in January and arrived at the Campground to learn that our reservations had been cancelled at some point. We had requested a specific spot which was now gone. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and found a spot for us, but it was near the road. The resort roads are tight but manageable for big rigs. The pull thru we were placed was short and near the Coastal Highway, so there was some noise. Wi-Fi was very good. The washrooms were clean, but the shower floors were stained and in need of a scrubbing. The Friday afternoon appetizers at the fire ring were a nice touch. We stayed here for three nights. We would overnight here again.

This a beautiful RV park next to a world class air museum in wine country. There a large number of pull thrus which are level concrete pads. The park is exceptionally clean and organized, and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a pool, but we didn't use it. The surrounding towns have good shopping and are just nice to walk around in. This is our second visit to this park and we will definitely return.

Great camp ground and friendly staff. The office has a minor amount of groceries for emergencies. We stayed in a pull through overnight. Site was concrete and level. Park is very nicely treed and clean. We didn't use the washroom. There is no pool. Very close to shopping at Anacortes, the WA state ferry terminal, and LaConner.

This is a great park located near the I-5, but very quiet. The pads are mostly pull-throughs and are long, large and level. The area is surrounded by a berm with a path on the top which runs next to a river. We stay here every year before beginning our annual August trip. We didn't use the washrooms or other services. We will stay here again.

There are a lot of permanents/seasonal rigs in the park. The permanents appear to occupy the back in spots around the perimeter of the park and the rigs that show up for a day or two get assigned the pull thrus. We were given a pull thru with all the services at the rear, well away from our sewer opening. The sites are about 60 foot long concrete pull thrus but ours was way out of level front to rear. There are bushes and mature trees that provide some screening. There are no picnic benches but there is some grass to sit out at night. The washrooms are clean but in need of updating. There are only two showers which are not very wide. There was a common room but it was locked. The WIFI is strong and cable is good. This is good park for spending a night while travelling thru. We would stay again.

This is first class park with courteous staff and wide, level concrete pads. The WIFI is excellent. There is a large outdoor pool and the washroom/showers are private and very clean. Laundry is $1.25 for both and the machines look newer. You can walk (5 minutes) to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum and literally spend a day checking out the exhibits. There is a huge indoor waterpark which is part of the museum which is a must see for kids. The area around McMinnville has lots to see and do. This is a first rate CG. We stayed here in a 5th wheel.

When we went into register the blonde older lady taking our registration was not the friendliest. The Campground is surrounded by water on 3 sides and we were facing the water. The water front sites provide an amazing view of the ocean. The sites are concrete and level. The Wi-Fi is spotty with 2 bars at best. The bathroom vents in the ceiling need a cleaning but other than that, the washrooms were clean. The showers are odd, in that you have to press a button every 45 seconds to continue your shower with no control of hot/cold water. The camp hosts keep the sites immaculate, cleaning each site after the camper has left. This is one of the few CG that do not allow ATV's in the area.
