We stayed here one night while passing through. The scenery was great and we spotted two bald eagles across from our site. Lots of trails in the area and potable water is available. Great star gazing opportunities.

Date of Stay:

We really liked this park. We parked next to the Colorado River, and unlike earlier reviews we heard NO traffic noise and witnessed no annoying military exercises of any kind. We marked bad on cleanliness because there was quite a bit of dog feces at our site. This is a county run park, our site had no BBQ but did have a fire ring of sorts. We stayed on the primitive side so we could be closest to the river and had no regrets. We would definitely stay here again.

This was a very nice park but did fall short in a couple of areas. To get a 10 from me a private shower is a must, this place has shower stalls in the bathroom that were clean, but not private like some of the best parks we've rated. Secondly, the brochure shows ping pong as an amenity. We were able to get a new un-cracked ball at the counter but the paddles were torn up and should be thrown in the trash. The table could also use some attention. For the money spent here, they should strive for excellence. The internet was excellent; the sites have hookups on either side to enable you to pull or back in. Curbside trash service and propane pickup and filling is available. Fires are lit until 10pm and are cozy. They advertised coffee available until 10pm in the rec area but when we went back later in the evening (7pm) the coffee was all put away. The park sits on the Sacramento River but is fenced with a locked gate in back. To access the river you have to walk around the outside of the park. Because of the proximity to I-5 I suggest getting a site on the west side of the park. There was some train whistles now and then but not bad. This park is conveniently located next to a Sharis restaurant and a grocery store as well as other places within easy walking distance. We would return here and hope they pay a little more attention to detail so we could give a 9. No discounts are available if you reside in a riverside site.

The staff here went out of there way to do everything right. What they lack in facilities is made up in service. There were two new sewer hook-ups at every site. We stayed here one night in a 60' pull through site. We would return for short stays.

Date of Stay:

This is basically a gravel parking lot with paved roadways. The sewer hook ups are disgusting unlike anything I've ever seen anywhere. You lay your hose in a hole and your neighbors line goes in on top or below yours. These is some grass and several pull through sites, but we found the staff to be unresponsive at best. We asked for a pull through and the answer was "they are hard to come by" We asked for grass and they said "This is Las Vegas" we ended up in the middle of the gravel lot. We walked through the park and found several sites with grass and several empty pull through sites. We will never return to this place and could not recommend it in good conscience.

Our rate reflects the monthly rate of $679 divided by 30 and does not include cable or electricity. This is a great park with lots to do. I give an 8 because 10 would be near perfect and this place has some deficiencies. The worst thing here is the internet! Most long-term and park model folks use something besides the "free" tengo net which is slow and undependable at best. The 2nd problem seems to be security. During the month we visited several expensive bicycles were stolen several weeks in a row, with thieves cutting the lock cables. With this, the park seems more worried about people hanging a towel from their awning than addressing serious night security flaws. All that said, you will not find a park with more activities than this place. Poker 6 days a week, ping pong, ham radio, shuffle board, pickle ball, lapidary and jewelry making shop, wood working shop, knitting, needlework, quilting a library, weekly entertainment, weekly bingo, hot tubs, pottery, swimming, water polo and aerobics and the list is endless. We will definitely be back and plan to stay longer and take more advantage of the things offered here.

We were here for 3 nights, wish it had been less. This is basically a mobile home park with spots for a few RV's as an afterthought in a very tight corner of the park right next to a very busy road with lots of buses and a 24 hr. Circle K right behind us. We have stayed in nearly 100 RV parks and campgrounds and this was one of the worst we have ever tried to pull in or hook up to. Our electricity was shared on a 30amp circuit with a gigantic lighted 2-sided billboard over our head, so that if we used more than 2 appliances at the same time in our trailer, the circuit would break. Turn the breaker off and out goes the billboard! The sewer hookup was actually underneath the RV, so you hook up and back over your sewer. Road noise was inconceivable. The office's answer for everything was "that's the way it's always been". We had a hedge of bushes between us and the bus stop and music playing 24 hours a day at the Circle K. The pool/rec room was nice. We would NEVER return here. This park would be better served to eliminate the RV spots.

Date of Stay:

This was a one night stay. A lot of "seasonal" friendly snowbirds here. Park is out in the middle of nowhere. Gravel road and gravel sites with a cement pad next to it. Wifi was adequate. If in the area we might stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This was a one night stay. The park is divided into two halves and at first we were assigned to a back-in space in the front half of the park. Sites were short, electric was shared and too far away, so we moved to a pull through site. The pull-through site was much better, more level and in the back half of the park which was much nicer. This park sits between a very busy street and Hwy 41. Traffic noise was tolerable. Don't think we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This was an overnight stop, conveniently located near I-5. The negative was that after we set up and leveled, we found that the 30 amp power in the site did not work and had to move to a different site. The same thing happened to another couple traveling with us. If it had not been for the positive experience with the camp host, this would have earned a lower rating. He was very friendly and helpful. WiFi was so-so. Not sure if we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here in the "A Circle" and enjoyed our stay. Early in the morning you can hear the owls going crazy. Our site was level, clean, and semi-private. They sell Ice and Firewood in the"B Circle". There are several walking paths that do not allow bicycles and a short walk to the Willamette River. Our rate reflects that our site had water and electricity, but no sewer. Some sites do have sewer, but none were available during our short stay. There is a dump site on the property. We will return here.

Our rate reflects our "Membership" price, so the $3 was for Cable TV. Lots of friendly bunnies here for the Grand Kids to feed, and the park is very Pet Friendly. Our cable reception and internet in #14 was not very good. Most of the time we could get no WiFi signal at all. The pool area need a considerable amount of work and housekeeping. Our site was not level and left us walking up an incline to exit our Travel Trailer. The firewood we bought here for $7 a bundle was not seasoned and nearly boiled when we finally managed to set it on fire. We will return here, but are considering dropping our $300/ year membership to this park.

Date of Stay:

This is probably one of The Best RV Parks in Oregon. That being said I could only rate it an 8 for three reasons. 1. The TV reception (cable) was terrible, my neighbors had the same issue. 2. The Hot Tub was not working for the entire stay. 3. The WiFi was very poor. Our rate reflects a casino and AAA discount. The last time I stayed here, I felt a 9 was low, but things have changed, maybe they want us to spend more time in the Casino? This is still a very nice park, but it needs improvements to get above an 8 for me. We will camp here again.

Our rate reflects our access pass. What a find, this place was a gem! I give it an 8 because of no hook-ups but you could not find a nicer primitive campground than this place. We were tempted to stay in a nearby park where you see your neighbor all day and are glad we came here! Fantastic hiking trails among trees that are over 600 years old. We counted over 300 rings on a nearby downed tree. The spots are large and very private. Many spots back up to the Cispus river. The restrooms are primitive but kept very clean and fresh. Firewood is sold at the park, but you get more for your money buying it at the Randle store on the way in. We will definitely be back. Our RV is 25' long.

Date of Stay:

We returned to this park after a couple of years and what a difference the site makes! This time we were placed on the side hill backing up to a fence with a home on the other side. The hill was so tight I went into 4WD to back it up the gravel hill. Our rate reflects our Coast to Coast pass. We will likely not give this place a third try. Our RV is 25' long.
