I got a late start on the Friday before the Labor Day weekend and knew I would not be able to make it to my son's house before dark. I also knew all of the area state parks and even commercial campgrounds would be packed. This service plaza parking area was a perfect quick solution - right on my way and easy to access. Admittedly, spaces were just large back-in areas marked with paint stripes on pavement, but there was electric for each site and water and a dump station were available. Some of the power posts looked pretty old and in need of replacement, but the one I had worked OK. One problem is that although spaces are wide enough to park a vehicle next to an RV, they were not very long. I had maybe 6' in front of my 32' Class C. Anything over 36' would not fit in, nor would toads or tow vehicles unless unhooked. Also, machines accepting payment take exact amount in cash only and you need to look carefully for the sign at the entrance to the service plaza that says "RV Parking." If you miss it, you cannot easily circle back. The sign is confusing and several RVs drove through looking for actual parking, were surprised to see hookups, and then drove through to the regular truck lot. Good Verizon service. Lots of road noise, as you would expect, although the RV sites are in the far back area and backup against some trees and a grassy area.

Beautiful location on the Mississippi and very pleasant campground with electric hookups. Only problem is that water spigots to fill your tanks are located in the middle of several sites, so you do need a long hose. Very nice paved roads and paved camping pads, withy clean gravel patios. And COE senior price is a very good bargain. Negatives are the piles of dog poop along the grassy area near the river!! And, of course, the trains. If you are a light sleeper, you might want to choose a site as close to the river as possible, as that will be farther from the trains. Trains really usually do not bother me, but I did hear them at night. went right back to sleep, however, so I will come here again. Two bars of Verizon data service and OK voice service. Also, I was able to get a site where I could get a satellite signal, but there are a lot of trees, so I was lucky.

Typical KOA, set up for families with kids who come there to use the pool. Roads dusty and dirt/gravel pads made my rig even dirtier than it already was. Roads are fairly easy to navigate with a big rig. One big problem is that many of the sites have shared water and electric pedestals--meaning that some sites have the sewer on one side and the water on the other, which makes it hard to hook up water and almost impossible to rinse your dump hose after dumping unless you have a very, very long water hose. I found it easier to fill my tanks because the fill is on that side. I have enough electric cord to run it under my motorhome. A lot of trees, so nice for shade, but hard to get satellite signal. Good Verizon access, however.

Very pretty place right on the Missouri River at Beaver Creek. I was here midweek in August, but almost had the whole place to myself. Sites are asphalt and very nicely spread apart so even when full, it would not have felt cramped. I had site 31 which was right on the river, so had a great view and very close to the boat ramp if I had had a boat. In between sites, there is well-kept grass and roads and camp sites are in good condition. I will definitely come back to this COE campground for the low senior rates and pretty view. Only negative was only 1-2 bars of Verizon service, if I was lucky. Kept dropping at times.

This is a better than average national park without hookups. It was very hot when I arrived, which worried me because I hate to bother people with my noisy generator, and I do not do well in hot weather. Luckily, generator hours were from 8-8 pm, which is very generous, so I was able to stay cool the first night. In addition, sites are fairly spread out and the side of my rig where the generator was located was facing away from other campers, so I felt comfortable that I was not bothering anyone. My site was a very long pull-through with room for another RV or even two! There were a few trees for shade, but I was still able to get satellite by moving back and forth to find the right spot. Very quiet area.

I had an emergency and spent several hours in the local emergency room. I knew it would be after dark when I got released, so I called this campground about a reservation that night. I do not usually drive or back up into a spot after dark, and the office would be closed, so the owner very kindly told me to call again and he would meet me at the office and check me in, as well as help me park, which I really appreciated. I ended up with a very long gravel space near the office which was fine. Luckily I had a 50 amp converter, but he would have loaned me one. I was very relieved to be able to find this place and get so much help getting in and hooked up, especially since I was still shaky and having effects from pain meds. I would stay here again.

Where else can you get a paved, clean full-hookup site for only $13 for us seniors? Agree with all others, but want to add that it is in a very quiet place, away from major roads and freeways, which is nice. No view of the Columbia River because of brush, unfortunately. Also, I had site 18 and was able to get Dish satellite signal and good Verizon service. It was very hot the days I was here, so I appreciated the shade from trees. I will be sure to come back here whenever I am passing through.

Park is a mixture of long-term residents and short-term visitors. Kids enjoyed the heated pool and laundry was clean with multiple machines. Sites are gravel and paved with grass in between. Reasonably sized for a commercial campground. Landscaping was well taken care of. One benefit is that this is walkable distance to a shopping center with Target and several other chains, but unfortunately not a big grocery store. A bit noisy, like all urban campground, but if you are visiting the city, a good place to stay at a reasonable rate. Got 3 bars of Verizon cell and data service.

This is an older state park and like nearly all California state parks, is expensive considering it has no hookups, and showers are quite a walk from some campsites. We stayed in Agate Campground, which has fewer overhead trees, but very thick vegetation between sites, resulting in a lot of privacy. Sites are dirt and mine was very difficult to squeeze into because the entrance had trees and branches to avoid, making it narrow. Picnic table and grill were in a more open space in the back. This campground is not too far from the beach, but because it is on a high bluff, there is quite a hike down to the beach and would take substantial effort for me. Very nice views, however. There are several other scenic hikes in this area which are not so strenuous, however. Got 2 bars of Verizon cell and data.

This is one of the very few west coast state parks that is really and truly on the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean, so it is a great value for the price. There are electric hookups on some sites, but no water or sewer hookups, but the dump and fill station is very close. Sites and roads are paved with grass between sites and in fairly good condition. It is a fairly small state park compared to a lot of others and is minimally manned, but the location and ocean view makes up for all of that. (There was a camp host but he had a sign out the entire three days that we were here that he was not on duty.) This is one of the deepest and flattest beaches I have seen on either coast--you could get worn out just getting to the surf! There is a small river that many of the sites overlook as well. But the best part of the constant wind makes for fantastic kite and windsock flying, which my grandkids really enjoyed. Decent Verizon service, but no AT&T.

The location gets a 10, but the facilities get a 2, which is generous, so I averaged it as a 6. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, but there should be an easier way to get to it, such as a boardwalk. Getting to the beach requires a climb up and down several hills on soft, very hot sand. Also, I can deal with dry camping, but for this price, they should have real restrooms instead of porta-potties. The one real restroom, toilets only, no showers, is locked for some reason. Also, water hookups are few and far between. I have not used the dump station yet, so no comment on that. Sites are close together and on dirt and sand, and very uneven. Ours had several small hills and depressions from old fire pits. I also found trash in the dunes area immediately next to our site, which is really a turn-off. One positive was generous generator hours and excellent Verizon service. Ocean breeze also slightly makes up for lack of facilities.

I really made a mistake in scheduling this campground. I meant to reserve in one of the campgrounds on the mesa, but I ended up in this campground below the dam along the river. The worst part was that I had not noticed that this campground is two miles down a very dusty and bumpy dirt road. In addition, it is a dead end and none of the rest of the state part is accessible unless you go back, cross the river, and drive another few dozen miles. There is no view of the lake at all and you have to fight your way through brush to even get to the river. I assume people who like to fish would be happier than I was. Roads and sites were asphalt, but the whole place looked unkempt. I also was only able to get 3G Verizon service. I may come back to this state park again, but absolutely not to this specific campground.

Yes, it is windy here, and the road coming in is narrow and on the levee, but it is passable, and the campground is more than worth the drive from Route 12. Sites are very large, not crowded together, and very clean and well-taken care of. It is also very quiet because it is away from traffic and main roads. It is nice to have plenty of room to park a vehicle next to your RV and still have room to sit outside with chairs and a picnic table. Verizon data signal was 3-4 bars of 4G service.

This is a relatively new campground, convenient to SLC airport. I stayed here for one night before and after I had to fly out, leaving my motorhome at the airport for five days in between. Sites are clean and paved, with grass and young trees in between. Very well maintained, but negatives are heavy freeway noise and what sounded like some sort of nearby race track one morning. Another irritation was the call center where I made a reservation. The first time, they put me into a very large space, which was corrected by the lady when I checked in and she noticed that I was in only a 32' vehicle with no tow. She put me in a smaller space and gave me a refund of $15. When I made the second reservation, I again was going to be charged $56 and put in a 40' space. Told the lady on the phone that I had been charged much less just 6 days before. So first she gave me the Good Sam discount and then when I argued some more, grudgingly put me in a 35' space for $37. I don't like those sorts of upselling games. but on the other hand, the office staff could not have been nicer, so I suspect someone in the call center is making these decisions. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a very pretty state park nestled in a small valley surrounded by hills and facing a lake. Roads are paved, as are sites, and many sites are double-wide. Sites are also spread fairly nicely apart. My only warning is that there is no cell service here, and I was only occasionally able to pick up a tiny bit of Verizon data, in spite of the fact that the Verizon coverage maps show 4G coverage here!
