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.

Date of Stay:

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.

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.

Date of Stay:

Not the place we had planned to stay, but we would stay here again. The only down-side is that the showers are coin operated, well, that and no cable TV. The facility is generally clean and well maintained, the dog-park is top notch. The store and office is open about 12 hours a day. It is far enough off I-5 to be very quite, but still close for good easy access.

Date of Stay:

It's not what I would call a "Resort". It's a gravel parking lot, the only offering beyond the RV connections is the Casino/Bar/etc. But it's not a bad stopping place. The $20 rate reflects no extra discounts. Plus they gave booklets with discounts at the Casino (discount of food, free drink, etc.). The Wi-Fi is great and the cable TV offers many, many channels. It's not a resort, but it's not a bad stop, we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A good stopping place to the west of Death Valley. Yes, it's mostly gravel, but they have excellent facilities and are great people. The gravel (that they use everywhere) is extra fine and tracks into the rig way too easy. But it's a fine facility and we would consider them again.

Date of Stay:

Possibly the finest "Gravel Lot RV Parking Lot" we have ever visited. Yup, there is not a speck of grass anywhere, well, except for some that accidentally is growing around some of their trees. Really this is a fine facility run by nice people, it's just that everything is gravel and the gravel is so fine it's almost sand, which tracks in terribly. If we were in the Owen Valley we would stay there again.

Date of Stay:

This park has great access to Dead Horse SP, Arches, and Canyonlands NP, along with the general Moab area. It is used heavily by the off-road crowd, which the Park does not allow to "ride around" in the park. The "view" sites offer more of a peek-a-boo binocular view of Spectacles Arches and Arches NP in general. It may be the best place to stay in the area. Rate includes discounts
