Gouge, gouge, gouge. Camped in the dry can dead grass field because the regular campground was full. Told I couldn't use the dump station, that our fee only covered the dead grass field. In many years of RV'ing, I've never been denied use of the dump station after paying to use the RV park -- even in an overflow area. Then they had the gall to ask if I wanted a regular site the following day in the regular RV park. What a money grab. What did my $20 get me? Well, at least they didn't get me for a second night. Felt like they were trying to grab all the money they could during the busy summer season. No business that treats customers this opportunistically every really survives in the end. Usually they make a lot of money for a while, but their reputation usually catches up with them eventually and they end up on everyone's NO list. I'd never stay here again with all the other nicer campgrounds and RV parks up and down this beautiful Oregon Coast.

Take it or leave it: that's their attitude here. Not many RV parks in the vicinity, so they pretty much do whatever they want. They don't care a thing about your feedback. TRUCK CAMPERS beware: you are not wanted here. You are NOT allowed to remove your camper from the truck (if you stay for a week or more) as they assume you are going to foul their precious park with your belongings. Apparently the same logic does not apply to people who drop a trailer or fifth wheel, just to truck campers. Tight and tiny spaces. Boy are they raking in the money here! Unfortunately the next closest place does not allow pets, so if you want to be close to Vancouver, BC, you're stuck with this place.

Pulled in here on a short visit to the area. Nice little RV park: clean restrooms and laundry rooms, well maintained sites: there are electric and water, electric only, and dry sites. No sewer; you have to use the dump station. Staff were warm and welcoming. Nice views of the Columbia River; the dry camp sites have the best views as they are right on the river. Also nice ambiance with the proximity to the marina. Easy walk into town for shopping (groceries, etc.). Small town environment. Camped here in a truck camper this time, but I could easily have brought in my 45' Country Coach motor home as the pull through electric and water sites were deep and easily accessible. Electric / water sites are modern, newish with easy connections. The Wi-Fi worked GREAT! Nice little spot. I'd return.

This is an OK place, very close to inner harbor and downtown Victoria. We didn't use them, but we did notice that the park actually CHARGES for showers. At $35/night, we think that charging for showers seems a bit much. The best and better RV parks do not generally stoop to this money-grubbing practice. The park was clean, but not "sparkling clean" as advertised. The sites are gravel with paved driveway. The presence of permanent-type rigs detracted from the experience. Only thing to justify the $35 price is the very close proximity to town. If you like dry camping and don't need hook-ups, there are actually two downtown 24-hour lots that charge $12 and $5 for overnight parking, and there is no "no camping" prohibition.

Maybe this place was "well maintained" and "a little gem" in 2006, but now its just another run down, has-been snowbird campground. The restrooms/showers were pathetic. The place is in the middle of absolutely nowhere, so unless you like sitting at your weed/dirt/sand site and doing absolutely nothing, you are out of luck here. An AOR affiliate; we were told that we had to pay more than our AOR contract stipulated (we'll be complaining to them), and then they tacked on an electrical surcharge equal to 50% of the nightly rate! Amenities were negligible, maybe a pool, but only open from 8AM to 6PM; pot luck dinners (who cares); and a bunch of other nonsense not worth mentioning. Laundry facilities OK, but restrooms / showers were ridiculous 3rd World-style facilities.

Date of Stay:

Pristine national parks campground. Fully paved road and sites. Lush grass between wide sites, small pond (with gators). Volunteer-maintained campground, and very nicely maintained by the friendly volunteer hosts. Electricity-only at sites. Water and dump are located at park entrance/exit. Would return if ever on Tamiani Trail (I75 / US 85) going from Miami to Naples again.

WARNING -- This is the same resort as TROPICAL PALMS FUN RESORT below. The difference in the names is due to the fact that ENCORE owns Tropical Palms Fun Resort. Someone should (but this is impossible) contact the web site and ask them to merge the reviews on these "two" facilities as they are one in the same.

Lots of nature walks, which were nice. Very shallow RV spaces if you have a larger (longer) rig. A bit overpriced for the actual spaces offered. Stayed for a day, but wouldn't have stayed longer. Why have 50 amp hookups if the site can't accommodate the kind of motorhome that needs 50 amps? Even in our rig, we had to move back and forth to use electricity, water, dump. Very strange. Even in a smaller rig, you would have to figure out your priorities: hook up electricity and water or dump hose, because you can't do all three.

Pure crap. STAY AWAY. And, don't bother with a membership in this ridiculous Western Horizons rip off. Filthy, falling-apart restrooms, potholes in the roads so bad that they are almost impassable (filled in with crushed oyster shells), take-it-or-leave-it staff, and the list goes on.

Date of Stay:

I guess you could describe this place as "take-it-or-leave-it". Staff didn't seem particularly interested in our business. The park has resort amenities, but the actual sites were not well maintained; at least not well enough to justify the price. Cable TV was a joke; our antenna brought in more stations, and clearer stations than the park's alleged cable. Pool (and kiddie pool) was clean and well-maintained, but then kids took it over most of the time so that adults were sidelined; and at night teens were engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior in the pool, so that killed it for us. The park is close to Disney World and does has full hook-ups (not all sites). Noticed that there were a variety of hokum activities for the snowbirds; lots of out of control children running wild (bicycles mostly) throughout the property, crossing campsites (no one teaches RV park etiquette apparently), riding over grass; and plenty of idiot adults parking vehicles on the grass between sites (privileged folks apparently). I guess we'd return if we had to, but it wouldn't be my first choice, still it was better than some parks promoting themselves as resorts.

Beautiful, well maintained campground run by National Park Service. All paved and semi-level sites. Bathrooms, but no hook-ups, showers, or amenities -- just nice dry camping. On the Natchez Trace Parkway about 25 miles south of Jackson and 30 miles north of Natchez, MS. Best of all -- it is pristine and FREE! I only entered $1 above because the website won't let you enter zero. We probably would not have brought our 43' motorcoach here (although there were some nice long pull-throughs), just because of the twists and turns, and because we couldn't explore the trace as well in a larger coach; but in our truck camper, it was just perfect.

Date of Stay:

Great little city park with a very nice RV set up. Sites were clean (each had cabana along the water). Waterfowl viewing along the water and a boardwalk-style walking path along the marshes. Nice volunteers; friendly. Great find for an overnight while passing through. Better maintained than some so-called RV resorts.

Date of Stay:

Park is OK and they have made some cosmetic improvements, (although the sewer connections are still broken and leaking) but the real issue here is the casino's utter lack of regard for the safety of the park's visitors. The casino shuttles speed through the park at excessive speed and then cut across the empty rv spaces rather than using the driveways. I brought these practices to the attention of Ameristar management last February when we visited here, and again today. They could not care less. All they seem intersted in is casino revenue, no matter how they get it. WE WILL DEFINITELY NOT RETURN.

Nice clean, well maintained park. Paved sites. Immaculate grounds. Management takes obvious pride in the place. No frills (no laundry, restrooms, showers), but there is a small pool. Everything worked and was spotless. Perfect place to stay when visiting the Bush Presidential Library. Wish there were one of these in every city we visit.

Date of Stay:

Exceptionally hospitable staff -- welcomed immediately on arrival -- escorted to our gravel site. Staff polite and welcoming. Site clean, thin grass surround, level, water and power worked fine (high water pressure noted). Clean, well-maintained restrooms, laundry and showers. Lots of trees, although trimmed well enough to access sites. Good place to overnight for a day or two when visiting Austin area. Propane available on site. Pool too close to highway to use or enjoy. Reasonable value for the area. RV PARK might be a better descriptor than RV RESORT. [PASSPORT AMERICA rate $19/nite]
