Very pretty campground with lots of green space. Some large shade trees, others growing. GPS is wrong so go by the large sign that is obvious for the campground. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

Super friendly staff. We have stayed here numerous times while on our way out west. Nice dog area. I think there had been a lot of rain recently because it was pretty wet. Bathrooms are individual, which is always nice. You should explore the downtown area. They are revitalizing the town and it is very cute. Nice restaurants and a river walk with murals depicting the town's history. Will be back for sure. Probably should call ahead in the summer. They are getting more year-round people and we were lucky to get a site at 5 PM without calling ahead.

So many pluses to this park. Close to highway but not too close to hear all the noise. Level sites. Individual bathrooms and showers. Beautifully landscaped, plenty of area to walk the dog. Streetlights so if coming in late it is doable. They even have 3 sites that have blue lights for late arrivals so it is even easier to find. Great place. Wish every campground could be so nice. Only needed it for one night, while passing through. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

Would give it a 10 but there is a train that runs in the back that goes by regularly. We had a back-in at site 15, which was so nice. You could see the Columbia River. There are nice shade trees and lots of grass. Nice dog area. The owner will tell you to not go over the Hood River Bridge....it is quite intimidating. We went over Garden of the Gods Bridge and went the 20 more miles on Rt. 14. Actually wished we had been on 14 the whole time because the views are really nice of the Gorge. If you come from the east, go over the bridge at Dallesport. It's free and plenty wide enough. Wished we had stayed longer but it is a small campground so reservations are important, especially on weekends.

This park has to be one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed in. It was originally to be used as a resort to have individual owners and only Class A RV's. Because the economy went bad, the park was sold and is now available for everyone. Bend is an incredible town and has so much to offer. This campground is pretty central to the surrounding areas. The sites are huge with trees everywhere. Large area behind the campground to let your dog off leash. Still plenty of areas on site to walk the dog on leash. Super friendly staff. The rate was for weekly. It goes up depending on how far in you want to be from the road. Even the road noise was minimal. Will come back for sure!! Major plus, the laundry room takes credit cards so no scrambling for quarters!

This park is very convenient to the train that takes you to the Grand Canyon. Sites are level, walking distance to train depot and if you don't want to walk, they offer a shuttle. Use AARP instead of Good Sam because there is more discount. Train was nice although the scenery not all that impressive along the way. First Class is the right way to go. Luxury isn't necessary as the dome just shows the sky. Pullman looks a little uncomfortable with bench seating and there are a lot of kids. Would definitely stay again. Eat at the Pine Country Inn in town, decent prices and great pies!!

I loved the size and intimacy of the park. Sites were nice size, lots of trees. Internet was bad but I guess that is to be expected out in the country. The directions to the campground was my biggest issue. Definitely DON"T use GPS which the website tells you but it also says to use route J 59. Unless you have a detailed California map, J 59 is not directly off the highway. 99 north is and then connects up with J 59 and the rest of the route would be great. Because we didn't know that, we ended up going up very steep 49 and an extra 2 hours to get there. Bathrooms aren't heated that I could see. Gas is reasonable and there is a restaurant that is very convenient.

We stay here because it is reasonably close to our son in Gilbert. It is mostly long term residents. It is a 55+ community so kids aren't here. Actually not sure what the price is because we arrived after the office was closed and it isn't open on weekends. We were here last year for 5 days and were put in an area for short term. They were too close together so this time having a bigger RV I requested a larger site. Had site #30 which was right by rest rooms and laundry and was perfect. Large patio, plenty of room to park. Will stay again.

This park is family owned and very friendly. The sites are level. There is a 3/4 mile trail around the park making walking the dog easy. Huge, clean bathrooms, large kitchen for people who would stay long term and have a party, lots of brochures available. Easy access from highway, beautiful mountain views. Internet so so, that is the only reason I wouldn't give it a 10. Would definitely stay again. No pool but that doesn't matter to us, might be an issue for children.

There are fairly new owners here that are trying to make improvements to the campground. Spaces are large but there are no shade trees which would be an issue in the summer. There really isn't much around this area to make one spend more than a night that I could see but we were just passing thru. Restaurant on the premises but we were there Easter so it was closed but there was another one not affiliated with the campground that was open. Pretty cool huge statue of Wild Bill Cody and a buffalo closer to the town of Oakley.

This is a family run campground for over 35 years so they have many return campers. I loved the access to the huge park adjacent to the campground. Laundry facilities very reasonable. Nice to have individual bathrooms. We only stayed two nights because we needed to have better internet which this park definitely did not have. They didn't even ask for money upfront since we were unsure how long we were going to stay. Very gracious about why we needed to leave. Sites are a little small but it is an older park. They do have a weekly rate which is nice. If the internet had been better we absolutely would have stayed.

Date of Stay:

Although pricier then some in the area, the campground has a lot of level sites, great areas to hike right behind the campground. We had to move from another campground because we needed better internet and this campground was far superior. Staff friendly. Would stay here again. We were here for a week.

Beautiful campground approx. 25 miles west of Zion National Park making it an easy place to stay as long as you have a car. (we did) Ask for a shady site if there in the summer...it was 100 degrees when we were there. Most of the sites have shade but they have expanded so some trees are quite small. Another thing to be aware of, is if you come from the east thru Zion, most RV's have to have their car removed and pay a $15 dollar fee to get thru the tunnel. They were built in the 1930's, so height is only 11 1/2 on the sides. They make the tunnel one way to accommodate RV's and buses. The roads are pretty windy too, so it makes for a somewhat stressful drive to get thru Zion. I suggest an alternate route if heading to Hurricane. We, or should I say my husband, drove our 33 ft RV but he said he would not want to do it again.

This is the closest campground to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon but it is still quite a drive. Sites not very level, no internet other than the phone. Lots of trees and wonderful areas to walk the dog. Only port a potties but they use chemicals so it isn't too bad. They charge for showers and laundry is kind of expensive but water is a premium up there. I would not want to show up at night here...very challenging backing into a lot of the sites. Pull thrus are used for the biggest RV's and fifth wheels. The staff is very helpful though assisting the process. Only one store/restaurant/gas station in the "town.

Easy access from I-70. Level lots, tons of shade trees, great areas to walk the dog. Not sure about the internet because I access it through my husband's phone via Verizon. Wish more parks had the types of sites that this one does. We had just come from Colorado in Estes Park and the sites there were terrible. They could use some tips from here.
