We spent one night in a deluxe pull-through site. I wish we'd planned a longer stay. This is the original KOA and it's one of the nicest we've seen. Our site was very generous and had a large patio with a swing, park bench and very nice picnic table. We didn't have time to use them, but the pool and the miniature golf looked excellent. Pistol Pete's, the on-site restaurant, was very good--I loved the BBQ ribs! Overall, we liked this KOA very much and definitely want to stay there again. Our nightly rate reflects an additional $5 discount we got because we also stayed at the KOA in West Yellowstone (West Entrance). We got caught in some high winds on I-94 and had an issue with our motorhome. The KOA office was very helpful and recommended an excellent mobile RV service technician.

We spent one night and the experience wasn't a good one. We made reservations for a pull-through site, but the office got the date wrong and tried to give us a back-in. Then, they sent us to a site much too short. They told us none of the long pull-throughs on the front row were available and put us in another short, muddy site in the weeds. We fit, but it was very tight. It was rainy and the park drainage is poor: there were many large puddles. The sites are dirt, no gravel, so it was also very muddy. However, our site was reasonably level. The free WiFi didn't work until just before we left in the morning. We also noticed the spots the office told us weren't available, never did fill up. Overall, next time we will look for somewhere else to stay.

We spent five weeks at Vista Park; our rate reflects the monthly stay. We loved it and we will definitely stay there again. We especially enjoyed the spectacular mountain views across the river into Oregon and watching ocean-going vessels of all sorts sail by on the Columbia River. In our experience, the pros are: (1) You can choose private, shaded full-hookup RV sites or rental yurts; Columbia River beachfront, water-and-electric-only sites; tent sites; or sunny, full-hookup sites in front of the mountain. All sites are are back-in. (2) Vista Park can accommodate big rigs. (3) There are two areas with playground equipment, and large open play areas. (4) There is river access and a beach area. However, it is not a guarded, swimming beach and the water is very cold. (5) Most sites have picnic tables and fire rings. (6) The Park Manager, Guest Host and staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. They couldn't be nicer! (6) Free WiFi. Most of the time it worked pretty well. (7) During summer, there is a small coffee bar, Ship Channel Espresso, in the park. They serve delicious coffee, espresso drinks, ice cream and an assortment of other goodies. Even the locals stop by for coffee! The cons--and these wouldn't be negatives for everyone--are: (1) No cable TV. We chose a narrower and less private, but sunny and open site so that we could use our satellite. Some of the shadier sites can get satellite, depending on the type of dish setup. (2) No pool. However, there is an indoor pool in Cathlamet where you can swim for a fee. (3) Skamokawa is somewhat remote. There is a very small general store within walking distance and two small markets about six miles away in Cathlamet. However, the nearest large supermarket is 30 miles away in Longview. There are a few restaurants in Skamokawa and Cathlamet.

This is a quiet, very pleasant park with mini-golf and other amusements for children, and views of the mountains. Although the park is close to I-90, there was very little road noise and it wasn't a problem. Our site was mostly level and wide enough, but sites aren't quite long enough for a large RV (44 ft.) with a car in tow. We would have preferred not to unhitch the car for a one-night stay, but we couldn't fit into our site without doing so. After we unhitched, though, there was room to park the car. There are evergreen trees around the park, but they didn't block our satellite. The park WiFi was too slow for anything but receiving email. However, we got a good Verizon signal and were able to use our own network. The office also contains a small souvenir shop. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed our stay.

We spent one night and found this KOA very pleasant and conveniently located off I-90. Our pull-through site was level but not quite long enough for the coach with the car in tow--we unhitched the car to be sure we didn't block anyone. We had no trouble parking the car in our spot after we unhitched. Our site was also easy in/easy out. The office staff was friendly and helpful, as were other campground staff we met. There was some road noise, understandable since the campground is right off the interstate, but it wasn't a problem.

Signage is extremely poor and the office, which closes at 3:00 PM, is very hard to find. We tried to spend the night, but the site we were assigned was too short for our RV--even if we had unhooked our car--we couldn't fit. We also discovered the electricity at our assigned site didn't work. Although there were many open sites, we couldn't find another site with 50 amp. The office was closed, no one answered the phone and there was no one to provide assistance, so we finally gave up and left to spend the night elsewhere. The pull-through sites in the front rows aren't paved and don't appear to be very level. This campground appears to be very poorly maintained.

We spent one night in a 44-footer with slide-outs and a tow. Richards RV is a small, quiet family-owned RV park a few miles northwest of Lubbock. Most of the residents are long term, but there are two pull-through sites in the front of the park for overnight stays. Both sites are level, partially shaded, easy in/easy out, very spacious and can accommodate any size RV. There is no cable or WiFi, but the rate is reasonable and the location is very convenient if you are traveling along US-84.

We spent four nights in a 44-footer with slideouts. We've stayed at Cowtown before, and have been satisfied with the park because the location is very convenient to Fort Worth, but this was an extremely disappointing stay--mainly because it was the first time we were in one of the unpaved sites in the back when it rained. The park slopes a bit towards the pack, it rained heavily, the drainage is very poor, there isn't enough gravel in the unpaved areas and the entire back of the park was a wet, muddy mess! The park definitely needs maintenance. There are concrete sites in the front of the park that can accommodate any size RV. Insist on one of them and avoid the unpaved sites if there is any chance of rain!

We spent three nights in a 44 ft. motorhome with slide-outs and a tow. The location is very convenient to Georgetown, Texas 130 (toll road) and I-35. Although it's only minutes from downtown Georgetown, East View feels quiet and rural. The amenities are limited--no pool or cable TV--but our pull-through site was easy in/easy out and overlooked a lush green pasture with rolling hills and valley in the distance. Our timing was perfect for the bluebonnets in the pasture and we a lovely view of them out our front window. Our site wasn't long enough to park the car behind the coach, but it was wide enough to open the slide-outs and still have room to park the car next to our RV. Sites are level, crushed granite so there is no mud or dust. The free WiFi worked well; our Verizon phones got an excellent signal and there was nothing to obstruct our satellite signal. The owners live on-site and are friendly, considerate and conscientious. Although there seem to be a number of long term/seasonal residents, their sites appeared reasonably neat and well-maintained. We would definitely stay there again.

We spent a week in a 44 ft. motorhome with slide-outs and a tow. Our off-season, weekly rate was $112 plus electric ($23 for the week). This is a very friendly, well-run park. We were there after most of the Winter Texans had already left and there were lots of open spaces. Our site was spacious and we had plenty of room. Our site was grass, but level, and we had a very nice concrete patio. Park management couldn't have been nicer or more friendly. We didn't have time to use it, but the salt-water pool and spa looked very well-maintained. The location is convenient to shopping and all the Valley attractions. We liked it very much and would definitely stay there again.

We spent one night in a 44 ft. motorhome with slide-outs and a tow. Overall, Braunig Lake is OK--we've stayed there before--but spots are gravel and not as level as we might have liked. While our site was long enough to leave the car attached, it was narrow. We got the slide-outs opened, but we were very close to our neighbors. Also, the drainage wasn't wonderful. It had rained heavily and there were still large puddles around us; it was a bit muddy, too. The park is very convenient to the interstates and very easy in/easy out; that's a definite plus for an overnight stay and the main reason we stay there. The people in the office are friendly and considerate--there was a large rally coming in and they were nice enough not to put us nearby.

We spent one night in a 44 ft. motorhome with slide-outs and a tow. Overall, we like Frog City very much for a convenient place to spend the night when traveling on I-10. Sites are gravel, but level and it's easy in/easy out! We've stayed there in the past and would definitely stay there again. The WiFi worked; our site was long enough that we didn't have to disconnect the car; we could open the slide-outs with no problems and the place is surprisingly quiet for a location so close to the interstate. The trees are small, but there was a little shade next to the coach. The hosts couldn't be friendlier or more helpful! There is a Love's Travel Stop just down the road and a casino next door if you're looking for entertainment.

We spent one night in a 44 ft. RV with slideouts and a tow. All sites are pull-through with concrete pads, but they are close together and short for big rigs. We didn't have to disconnect the car, but there wasn't an inch to spare. It had rained before we got there and, despite the paved sites, there were huge puddles throughout the park. The overall drainage is very poor and the entire park was a muddy mess. We had no problem getting a DirecTV satellite signal, but the guest host didn't have the WiFi password--and never managed to get it from the owner--so we weren't able to see if the park WiFi worked or not. Fortunately, Verizon cell coverage was excellent and we could use own Verizon Jetpack for WiFi. Overall, despite the excellent Passport America price per night, we didn't like this park very much and wouldn't stay there again. With a shorter RV and dry weather it might be OK.

We spent one night in a 44 ft. motorhome with slide-outs and a tow. We chose this park for an overnight stay because of the convenient location and the easy in/easy out big rig-friendly, level grassy sites. We asked for a sunny spot so we could use our satellite, but there are lots of shady sites for those who like them. For anyone traveling with children, this would be a great place for a short or long stay. The waterslide and other kid-friendly facilities looked excellent. The WiFi worked well enough. We didn't use the showers or laundry facilities. It was a little pricey, even with the Passport America discount, but big rig-friendly parks are fairly limited along this area of I-10 and, overall, we liked this park very much. We would definitely stay there again.

This campground is excellent if what you need is a really convenient location to park your RV near the speedway, the University area of Charlotte, Huntersville, Mooresville, Concord or Kannapolis. There is easy access from I-85 and I-485. The pull-through sites are big-rig friendly--they are long enough for the longest RVs and wide enough for slide-outs. The term "resort" implies amenities and that's a stretch here. There is no pool and the play area is tiny. We haven't used the laundry facilities recently, but on previous stays, we found the laundry facilities to be average. Water pressure is always good. There is no cable, but there is nothing to block satellite reception. Rates are extremely reasonable when it's not Race Week. During Race Week, rates are high, but the location is perfect for getting to and from the speedway.
