One of the nicest USFS campgrounds we have seen in a while. Very tall shady pines, nice level sites. The sites nearest the lake don't have hookups, the next loop has power and water, and the loop furthest from the lake has full hookups. Firewood is available from the camp host. Eagle Lake is a 14 mile drive off the main highway, but the road is paved and mostly in good condition. Good cell reception for our Verizon phones and data card. There is a marina and store nearby but we didn't visit. Very mellow this time of year and we decided to stay an extra day. I would imagine during the summer, this campground would be full and a lot less mellow. We would camp here again, but only in the off season.

Nice little wayside park right on 395. All dirt, no grass. There are concrete pads for the picnic tables. Water and power, but no dump station. Dump station nearby for $5. A little noisy being next to the highway, but then most parks along this section are too, being so close to the highway. Lots of mature shade trees. Good location for exploring the area. It's just a little north of Big Pine so all your shopping and fuel needs are close.

Beautiful park with paved sites, great views, quiet, and friendly staff. Verizon cell signal strong and with wifi card service was good. TV channels good over the air. Picnic tables are very nice and covered. BBQ on a stand in very good condition. Park is well maintained. Not all sites have water. Dump stations are available. We would stay here again and for more than one day.

Love this place. This is our kind of favorite RV park/campground. Low profile, off the beaten path. Sites are spread out with lawns and trees. Cell service was good and our Verizon WIFI card worked well. Great level gravel sites many with nice views of the reservoir. Unfortunately a drought is occurring now and the reservoir is down to 1% of capacity and they had to stop watering the lawns. Some sites can have water hookups if you hose is long enough. Large open areas to let the dogs run. Staff was friendly and helpful. This place goes on our list of favorites.

Very nice KOA. The place is well maintained and immaculate. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great views of the mountains. Very good WiFi. Small store for basic needs. All gravel but maintained and in very good condition. Very little dust for a gravel and a small ways off the main highway made it pretty quite. A public 3 acre dog park is easy walk with dedicated path from the RV park.

Fairly new campground on the banks of Prineville Lake. All paved with water and power at sites. Dual dump station at the exit. A few sites are right on the water but all are close to the shoreline. Some sites can be a little challenge to level. Many mature trees around but no lawns. This is high desert territory. It has 27 first come, first served sites but some can be reserved on reserveamerica.com. Decent spacing between most sites. We would camp there again.

Nice new small park. Not a destination, but a good wayside to take a break for a day or more. The campground is next to a nice day use area with a large structure for groups. Campground and day use area is adjacent to a small earth dam and reservoir. Sites are level and gravel. New trees and shrubs planted and will provide privacy and shade as they grow. We would camp here again.

Third time at this park. Great wayside if you have to spend a lot of time on I84. Two levels, sometimes the upper level is more windy but has better views of the Snake River. Nice lawns and lots of shade. Elec and water at site. Sites level and paved. Tables and fire pits at all sites and the park is well maintained. Two dump stations in park. Cell phone reception is good and a park wifi is available at a reasonable cost. Some sites close together but most have decent spacing. Quite a few double sites with water and power, but you may need extensions for at least on of the RV's. We will stay here again.

Not usually a fan of KOA's but this one is nice and unique. At 9000' probably the highest RV park in the US. Fairly new and well equipped. Pretty much a gravel parking lot with few trees and no lawns. There is a pet area but it's mostly a poop zone with no exercise area. None the less, very good amenities with a very nice laundry room, hot tubs, store (minimal with no produce), full hook ups, cable, propane, and friendly and helpful service.

I read the other review that said it was the most beautiful park they had visited. Didn't quite say why though. It has spectacular scenery. We were amazed and really didn't have any expectation. You drive in of Hiway 40 through low rolling hills. All of sudden after about 6 miles on paved road, it narrows down to a very narrow canyon with beautiful rock formations and pinnacles. After another 1 1/2 miles on dirt/gravel road in pretty good condition, you make a turn in to Camelot and drive thru pinnacle rock formations to either the lodge or campground. It's like being at the bottom of a mini version of the Grand or Bryce Canyon. Huge cliffs and pinnacle so close you feel like you could reach out and touch them. The campgrounds have power and water with a dump station near the exit. Big open area with lawns. All sites back up to a small river with Cutthroat and Brown trout on the Strawberry river. The spacing would be a little tight if was full, but it's under the radar so I doubt it would ever be full. Only one other camper. Website pics don't do this place justice. I have a full size truck towing a 27' Airstream and could easily access the campground. The map directions on the website could be improved. The mileage is correct but the "Red Creek exit" is a little confusing. There is no "exit" in the traditional sense. You come to a depression of Hiway 40 and when you cross Red Creek, you turn on Road 41950 W. Cell phone reception was spotty, but at time we could access the internet with our Verizon data card and a Wilson cradle amplifier.

Well maintained and manicured park with full hookups at site. Three different loops. The RV loop had decent spacing but not great. Some shady spots. Very good shopping and dining nearby, everything you could want. The other two loops are heavily wooded and well spaced but only have power. Some sites could take a large trailer or motorhome. Mosquitoes not too bad considering the ponds nearby. Some wild turkeys and very large snapping turtles wandering around. Pets must be on 6' leash at all times. Cell reception was good.

Beautiful park with lawns, swim beach, electric at site, and only $16. We were here 6/10-12 and virtually no mosquitoes. Great after being eaten alive in MN. Nice fire pits with grills in good condition. Looks like all the sites are large and level. Verizon reception pretty good and 5 bars using a Wilson cradle amplifier. Mid-week seems OK to get sites but it looks like the weekends are booked. Nice shade trees and decent spacing between sites. Appears to be very well maintained.

Nice small wayside park in a typical mid west charming small town. This includes a rodeo arena and small park. We are here on Memorial Day 2014 and no one here. Nice level spaces with lawns. We tried to find info about rates but based on information on a billboard it appears to be free.

Nice small state park within 20 miles of the southern part of Seattle. I agree with the comments about the walk ins and the site board not being very helpful. Two sides to it by crossing the road separating the park. West side, camping and the shore front day use area. Winter use is great. Hard to find all years campsites sometimes. Looks like major upgrades to the utilities. Not our first time here and will stay again as a wayside.

We came for the hot air balloon festival. It's open all year and even though they have been pounded by recent storms, they carved out a space in the snow for us. New owners and many upgrades have been made in the restroom: showers, laundromat, electrical, plumbing, and more. I would give it a 10 except it looks like it can get a little tight if the park was full. Can't say much about the grounds since it's under 2-3 feet of snow, but the area they cleared for us is grass and is solid even with the melting snow. Fastest internet I have ever experienced in any park from Homer, Alaska to New Orleans. Staff is great and very friendly. So easy to walk to the historic, rustic small downtown. Cell phone (Verizon) signal was stronger than I get in some metropolitan areas. Deer consider this a safe nursery area and they walk right next to our RV like we not even here. Also, eagles are a common site. It's hard to find winter camping with full hookups in "real" winter. This place is a gem.
