Very busy campground, of the 59 sites in the loop we were in, all but 4 were occupied, on week-day nights. The way the all sites are laid out, you might want to park "backwards" to the site. This puts the power on the wrong side, but the table on the right. All sites are in pairs, and can be narrow if large rigs with slides are assigned to the same pair. When we were there the majority of users were rental RVs, one night 34 of the 45 occupied sites in our loop were rentals.

Date of Stay:

There are 52 unserviced (no power) sites and 30 with power. They advertise 15 amp, but all outlets are 30 amp. There is one serviced site (#1), with power, water and sewer. But it is marked "host", but unoccupied. There is a notice that the water spigots (three?) may be out due to construction, and they were at the time we were there. A number of the serviced sites a marked "reserved" and are supposed to be occupied only by reservation. At the time we were there, none were. This campground is very quiet, even with the near-by bridge rebuilding. Due to the bridge work the "up the hill" Old Man Recreation site is not easily available, so the dump-site, shower, etc are not easily accessible (a long drive around is required). The "bathhouses" on site are all pit-toilets (with electric lights). We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Note, over and above the campground fee, there is a daily vehicle fee, although 3-day, 7-day, etc. passes are available. There is one (full service) bathhouse for the entire park,. They clean it twice a day, and they need to. Showers are only available here, and are included in the campground fee. There are also several pit-toilet "washhouses". Some have running water, some do not. The published site lengths appear to be conservative, as we easily fit in a "45 ft" site, even though we are 48 ft long (connected) and more like 55 ft disconnected. All sites have power, a fire-pit and a table. Sites vary from full sun to mostly shaded. Firewood is provided. Given the "wetlands", even inside the campground, bugs can be a problem. Many of the frequent visitors have screen rooms or houses. We would stay here again.

This is a busy campground. There is basically three areas, the tree area which has everything from tent sites with no services to 30amp/water/sewer sites. The other two are quality gravel parking lots with 30/50-amp/water/sewer and are in full sun. There is a lot here for the family. Although they appear to make some effort to keep the families with small kids apart from the Seniors. There is free wifi at the office area. The entire park wifi is Tengo. Which we never try any more after many bad experiences with Tengo. The parks free wifi is reasonably good. Because of holiday scheduling, members coming in (it's a public and membership park) we had to stay both in the treed area and open area.

Date of Stay:

Reasonable, clean and easy to find, all things considered a reasonable stop in town. The west side spots have some afternoon shade. As noted, half the spots have utilities that might be on the "wrong" side (unless you "head-in"). The Wi-Fi is only provided when the park is "mostly" empty. It does not have the bandwidth to support more than a handful of users. We'd stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The reason they get away with the small sites and high prices is they are the only game in town. They are the only place that has a chance to fit large rigs. The services campground in the park fills up early and they can "only" handle combo's to 50ft. Showers cost extra ($2). Wifi is OK (they get their feed via Sat). But if you are visiting the park, it's better then driving 90+ miles a day to stay someplace else.

This is what a KOA should be, and all too often are not. Clean, quiet, good wifi, good cable (60+ channels plus digital music), dog walk area, etc. The mini-golf has been sold and will be converted into a 2nd dog walk area.

The "No Power" is temporary, on about 1 Oct the transformer that feeds the RV-park, bathrooms and laundry failed. NAVFAC is considering this a "non-critical repair" and repairs may not be done until early 2015. This power-failure means the facility is only charging half-price until power is restored. But they are taking advantage of this and are also replacing all rusted/faulty/broken power pools in the RV section. The RV area bathrooms and laundry have been repaired. The tent area bathrooms are functioning normally. The recreation buildings have seen some work and are now in good shape (these are shared with the tent camp, rental cottages and hotel). Since my last review (2 years ago) this park has seen improvements, and I would expect power to be restored by spring.

Date of Stay:

Stayed at Ocean Breeze again. Some updates. KM continues to clean up and restore the park, including the previously mentioned dump-station, pool, sauna and club-house kitchen upgrades, they are working on brush clearing and road graveling (I'm told nearing $500,000 spent). They appear to have dropped the plans for "premium" spot upgrades that would have included sewer, I'm guessing permit issues with Gray's Harbor Co. I understand that originally the on-site lake had recreational facilities. But when Beavers raised the level of the lake these were drowned, and the then owners took no actions. The DNR considers the wet-lands to be natural (it's been nearly 20 years) and it does not appear that KM will be allowed to return the lake and area to recreational use. There are a handful of sites that are near enough to the lake to be considered "water-front". But these are certainly more "wet-lands" views then "recreational" views. Maybe good for bird watching...(or mosquito dodging). Contrary to the claim of "no satellite reception", I saw several rigs with dishes deployed. However there is probably no more then 6 sites where a roof mounted antenna would work. There are many more where portable antennas work. However there are certainly 100 sites where there is no possibility of satellite reception. Wi-Fi has been updated and now costs $1/day/device, but still only works at or near the Office/Club-House. Wi-Fi has been "bandwidth blocked" to keep people from trying to stream movies/videos. Over-night rate depends on membership type, ours is $0/day.

This is a county park, including playgrounds, play fields, ballfields, soccer, etc. There are only about 2 sites there are "big rig" friendly. In fact there is one entire loop that is tents/micro-trailers only. This is a very popular campground with the locals. While it was nearly full, only two of the guests were from out-of-town. There are many children's activities possible, between the playgrounds and ball-fields. We stayed there while attending a nearby meeting. If we were in the area, we would stay here again, and so would our friends that "camped" in a parking lot to attend the meeting.

Date of Stay:

The bath houses have been recently refurbished and are in excellent condition. Several children's activities have also been added. The (lower, older) Maple Grove campsites' roads have recently been re-graveled and some of the sites refurbished. If children's activities, golf, and an in-door pool are important to you, this could be an excellent choice. We prefer staying in the "grove" as it's more a camping experience. In the week we've been here this year there have been been more then 5 campers, with spots for over 100. The lower area offers only water or water/power(30 amp) spots only (due to winter flooding issues). Some of the upper area sites have water/power/sewer/TV. We have stayed here before and would again. Due to our membership class, our actual cost is $0.

There are basically two RV loops. Half of one side is semi shaded (#11 thru 15), the other is mostly sunny(#1-10). The other loop (#16 thru 23) are mostly sunny, but have better lawn. All of the "northern" most sites, that is 15, 16 to 18 and 8 to 10 are under the high-tension power lines and some people find the hum objectionable. We were in 22 and could not hear the hum inside the rig. No broadcast TV reception and cell-phone is spotty

Date of Stay:

Changes since our last stay. Wi-Fi now covers the entire park, rather then just the area around the club-house and costs $1/day/machine. But appears solid throughout the park. The hot-tub has been shutdown as the county wants it upgraded to a commercial type install. The clubhouse is currently undergoing a minor remodel and due to reopen by Thanksgiving. The drain-field near the clubhouse and all spots nearby is being redone.

Date of Stay:

Overpriced is probably the best word to describe this park. It is not bad, it is actually reasonably clean and maintained. It is certainly better then many parks that are majority "long term" tenants. But for the price I would expect more. TV was by OTA only, the Wi-Fi was bad to marginal. The office (and main building) was only open from 8 to 5 (bathrooms 24/7). When I compare it to the park in Nevada where we spent the previous night it really comes off bad at 2.5-times the cost. The cheap park had an office/store that was open 24-7, on-site 24-7 security, a bar, a restaurant, cable with 50 channels (about half a dozen premium ones, HBO, etc), multiple Wi-Fi hot-spots, etc, etc. I can't see ever staying there again and could not suggest it to others.

Date of Stay:

Nice. Right on the river, a couple miles from I-5 and the railroads, reasonably quiet. Did hear ships going by and could hear then train whistles, but not too bad. The pull-through slots are all designed to allow you to park the rig in either direction, to maximizes your view (of the river) from your rig. The only down-side is they were remodeling the bathrooms and about half the facilities were torn apart. We certainly would stay here again.
