We were assigned a spot one site away from the beautiful dunes with trail access to the huge beach. Park is just a bit outside of town which was fine with us. Drove into Ilwaco for fresh fish off the boats one morning. Small rest room / shower and laundry areas but clean, fairly priced and fully operational. WiFi weak, as we have found nearly everywhere we have stopped. Deer behind the RV in the tall grass one morning. Second day there, managers came by and asked what we were doing in that particular spot. Seems the site managers from the day before had escorted us to the wrong spot but they took full responsibility and got all the paperwork corrected, and all RVs situated. Would definitely stay here again.

Although the check in folks were friendly and informative, and the pool was cool, refreshing water; I can't say much more in the way of good assets for this park. Hookups are difficult to get everything connected due to location way at the back of gravel site; everything on the property is dated and appears to be original from when Route 66 was the major thoroughfare; trash is one big dumpster near the exit. I could go on but the simple advice is for you to go on your way as well. We would not stay here again unless it was an emergency.

Assigned a nice spot, away from the main motor home area and near the cabins. You must rent a box to use their cable but you can get all sorts of music channels without it. WiFi inoperative 4 out of 5 days unless you were right in the registration office or café (which was a nice spot). Laundry clean and fairly priced with industrial sized machines. Easy access via multi-use paths to Whistler Village and its multitude of shops, restaurants, attractions as well as the many bike paths and trails. Bear warnings the entire time we were there; tent area even evacuated once. Nothing that even resembles food can be left outside. There's only one other choice for RVs and it is a ways south of town, certainly not as convenient if you want to be in the midst of things. We would stay again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We had stayed in another park just down the road last year and were inundated with bugs. Not so at this lovely park full of mature shade trees and operated by respectful and helpful proprietors. Were assigned a pull-through site which was fairly level and not so near our neighbors that we could put our slides and awning out as well as enjoy the picnic table during happy hour without feeling cramped in the least. Wi-Fi was a bit strained, no doubt due to the nearly full park. Pool was clean and enjoyable. Very cute ice cream/gelato trailer right on property. Lots of families but everyone got along and the ruckus that sometimes goes with children running amuck was not to be seen. Our next morning was started by observing a mini cattle drive by ATV cowboys going right down the street outside the park. Didn't think much about it until stopping for gas in Ogden and noticing the "leavings" on the motor home splash guards and the front of the toad. A good bit of water did the trick. It was only an overnight for us but we would definitely return for one or multiple nights.

We decided to try this out after being shut out of the various state parks in the Anacortes area. We were not disappointed. Although only 30 amp service, even that was not needed as the temps were mild being so close to the water. There is one section pretty much on a parking lot and another, the one we stayed in, just off the entry road where the camp host resides - these are diagonal, back in spots and have much more room than the parking lot folks. Site was very level. Wi-Fi was weak but usable. Rest room/showers were in the city park area but we did not use them. No laundry. It rained off and on the 2 days we resided there and the roads remained clear and no severe puddling was evident. Although they do not have a pool per se, the Oak Harbor city beach is right next to the park, as are kayak/SUP/wake board rentals and excursions. Safeway, Walmart, Albertsons are within one block, as is a wonderful little donut shop. The city park also has lots of play equipment for kids. Be patient driving south from Anacortes if you have a big rig, especially across the Deception Pass bridges.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Concrete sites, with concrete pad for toad with very little grass, but there is tidy, low profile landscaping between sites. Both sites we stayed in (two different visits within two weeks) were somewhat less than level but we manually adjusted levelers to accommodate. This place is busy so be sure to have a reservation during the vacation season. Rest room/shower closest to us was closed for repairs 3 out of the 4 days we were on site. Other one was by the office on the other side of park so we did not use. Did not use laundry either. Great, central location in Portland; was able to easily to visit daughter in NE section as well as enjoy meals at local restaurants and do some grocery shopping as well. Wi-Fi was weak unless you woke up early and got online. Cable channels what you would expect in a big city. Interesting long termers with vegetable/flower gardens. We would stay here again, mostly because of location.

Cute Oregon Trail theme throughout. Wonderful indoor spa took the aches of our "trail" away. Good neighbors came forward to tell us of a great, informal dog run across the street even though the one provided by the park seemed adequate. Other neighbors simply stopped by to ask how our day was going, where we were from, etc. Very friendly residents. Wi-Fi was fair. Cable channels about normal for what you'd expect. Fair priced laundry, and dryer actually dried in one loading. Huge, clean pool with basketball hoop and play equipment. Decent sized store, supply shop. Site fairly level and a good bit of room between you and neighbor. Family run operation with "mom" berating the teenage boys to get the chores done (weed trimming, flower pot watering, etc.). We would definitely stay here again.

It was July so we had our choice of spots which the security guard on bicycle was patient with the time we took to choose (we arrived after hours). Guard also returned after we were settled with pool/rest room/shower key cards and, we also observed him cycling around the property throughout the evening. Concrete sites; nearly level; Wi-Fi worked well - a rarity these days - perhaps due to the low occupancy rate? 50 amp power nice and steady, especially with 2 A/C units on full blast. Did not explore the pool/spa area as we were meeting family for a late dinner and simply crashed to bed after that. Enough cable channels to keep you busy, although all we are usually interested in is the local weather for our next day of driving. Did not use the casino, showers, rest rooms so cannot comment on them. We were required to check out in the office and the gal there started to go through the entire rigmarole (pet rules, pool location, quiet hours, etc.) and wouldn't be interrupted. When she finally finished, I reminded her that we were simply checking out to which she replied that everyone gets the same information run down. Hmmmmm! It was a great location for us - near the family residence; would use it for an overnight or more if we somehow become casino lizards.

A return trip to this campground for us, but this time in a class A. We were given site #56 which had plenty of room, tons of shade, very level gravel (we deployed our levelers but they hardly engaged). Cable worked great and we watched on the outdoor & indoor TVs. Did not try the wifi except to set our phones to it for data. Inspected but did not use the rest rooms/showers and they were clean and well maintained. Oak Creek access is via the property. We rode out to the Bell Rock area for one day of mountain biking and up the road from the campground to Huckaby trial for another excursion. Visited an Irish bar near the "Y" and took in one of the Indian Rug art stores (Garlands?). All within walking distance of the campground. We will definitely stay here again, and again.....

Odd traffic pattern to the park with a greater than 45 degree angle turn necessary to exit most sites. First assigned site was next to and out front of an adjacent site and I was not comfortable with the position in case my neighbor needed to get out (which he did the following morning). However, front desk staff was flabbergasted that I wanted to try another location even though the park was essentially 25% of capacity. Also, park gate closes at 6:00 pm, period! You can get a car or truck around an adjacent driveway but don't bother coming in off the highway with your RV as there is no turn around. There is, on the brighter side, a good, worthwhile RV wash just outside the park. This makes two strikes for us in the Wilcox area so we'll probably look for another community next time through.

Rate reflects KOA membership discount. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff (owners). It was late winter so I shouldn't comment too much on the bare grounds, but it looked like it would definitely be more appealing with foliage, and the pool would be open as well! Rest Room / Showers were dated but clean. Would stay here again.

Stayed here again while participating in Texas Hell Week and it did not disappoint, again. Clean park that is well and regularly maintained with a varied schedule of activities on site each day. Free ice! Washers and dryers work great for a reasonable price, major hospital nearby, and VFW hall and Carls restaurant have gates to their property via the park. Will most definitely stay here whenever in the area.

We've stayed at this park in the past and it has definitely seen better days. The friendly and helpful enough front desk staff mentioned that one of the owners passed away this past year and perhaps that has led to its demise. The restaurant was closed. The gift/supply shop is now non-existent except for some local wine and an ice freezer. Landscaping could use more attention and the entire park seems to need some general maintenance. We will probably look elsewhere next time and remember the good old days of this place.

Date of Stay:

As other reviewers have pointed out, this is a very clean park. The showers even had hair dryers - first time I'd seen that! Partial fencing / shrubbery between every two sites did a lot to enhance the privacy feeling. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful and even clarified some restaurant recommendations we received at a New Mexico tourist information stop. Had stayed just down the street but that park is just average compared to this one for just a few more dollars.

Another New Years visit to this park to get away from the crazies in town during this holiday. Took a pull thru for ease of parking our new class A but will probably get a back in next time as all sites are very spacious. Impeccably well maintained park with friendly gate keepers and camp hosts. In the midst of many trails for hiking and mountain biking. Will definitely stay here again.
