Caveats about our visit: only the upper loop was open (winter season), the whole park was undergoing electricity upgrades (up to 50-amp service on several sites!), and the water wasn't turned on--we had to dry camp, which explains the discounted rate. That being said, what a wonderful spot, with great views of (and boat access to) the Snake River. The campsites are interestingly designed along the contours of the terrain, which also means that only a few are suitable for big rigs (especially in the upper loop). That also applies to the interior roads, which require careful driving. Nice walking/biking trails (unpaved). Dump station available when exiting (could be challenging for bigger rigs). Definitely recommended, but take your time if in a big rig.

Date of Stay:

Older, smaller KOA, although well maintained and modernized; not overly attractive. Check-in a little curt but efficient (although the entrance gets pretty cramped if two or more rigs are present at the same time--careful manoeuvring necessary). FHU functional, no complaints there. Larger and smaller pull-through sites (big rigs no problem), and several large back-ins at the back of the park. Grass between pull-through sites, typical width for such parks, about 7 feet. In a rather industrial neighbourhood but not too noisy at night. Leaving the park can be challenging, especially if turning left (northbound), as the park is on a pretty busy four-wide main road. Overall, the price was reasonable but I wouldn't want to pay much more.

What an enjoyable park! Lots of grass, right by the Columbia River, and a 3-mile walking/biking paved trail runs right through it. FHU showing their age a bit, but perfectly serviceable. Most sites are paved with an adjacent gravel (tent?) pad; leveling can be a little difficult, especially on the pull-through sites. Several sites can accomodate big rigs, but not all. Gets quite busy, I think reservations are a necessity during the peak season (we were there in early April and the park was essentially full). Great overall, we'll definitely come back when in the area.

'Standard' modern RV park, with pull-through sites in the middle (mostly overnighters) and back-ins along the periphery (mostly perms or semi-perms--nice rigs, no clutter). Extremely clean and well managed (aside from the office hours being quite limited). FHU perfectly functional (for the pull-through sites, electric and water at the back, sewer in the middle); nice grassy strip between the sites (not overly wide, but acceptable in such a park). Train tracks are very close to the park, but for the most part, it looks as though they don't blow their horn very often, so we didn't mind the rumble when they (frequently) go by.

Date of Stay:

Great little state park. Extremely reasonable price for water and electric, but be aware there is a $10/night surcharge for a second vehicle if that's your case. The campground is well laid out and very suitable for big rigs (most sites). Accommodations vary from 50-amp FHU to dry camping. All sites are well spaced, level and just a short distance from Lea Lake's beach, the largest of the bottomless lakes. Nice visitor centre, complete with explicative displays about the origin and nature of the lakes. Nice wetlands trail at the south end of the park and a 3-mile hiking/mountain-biking trail at the north end.

Very nice RV park. All sites are large pull-throughs on desert gravel. Full hook-ups at each site (some 30 amps, some 50 amps); the only drawback is very low water pressure (35 PSI)--but the water is very soft, an amazing and pleasant surprise in Arizona. Electricity is metered (even for overnight stays) and billed upon checkout. Despite their website's claim, the views are just OK. At least, no industry or junkyard in sight. In my opinion, the best RV park near Tombstone, which is about a 10-minute drive away.

Date of Stay:

Rate is with KOA discount. Decent, smaller park. Like most KOAs, a little over-priced. All hook-ups worked fine but only a few sites are suitable for bigger rigs, and even then some tight manoeuvring is required. Our site was adequate but far from spacious. Small petting zoo on site (goats, etc.). Dog friendly.

Date of Stay:

Being there during the low season, the park was mostly empty and very quiet. Nice sites, easy enough to maneuver, and FHU all up to par. Very helpful and friendly owners (office is at the gift shop when you first pull in). We would definitely come back when in the area.

Date of Stay:

Rate is for extra-long pull-through (other side of the road). Plenty of room for truck, 40-ft fifth wheel and small car. Could get muddy on rainy days, but nice enough. FHU worked well. Nice and quiet, especially at night. The Campground is in two parts: one on the lake with the office and one across a minor road. No issues there. A note: it looks as though they can accommodate biggish rigs on the lakeside part (we were there during the low season and a forty-five footer managed to cram in there), but certainly not the case during busy times. It's more for smaller C-Class and B-Class rigs. Would come back.

Date of Stay:

Rate based on weekly. Overall a nice park located in an old olive grove. All sites have gnarly olive trees, which provides for a nice setting. FHU worked well. Layout is standard rows of pull-throughs, but spacious enough compared to other parks we have visited. Lots of permanent residents, overall well kept but a few minor surprises (dogs occasionally noisy, etc.). Caretaker very attentive and hard-working, and it shows--we thought everything was well maintained and good-looking. Lots of road noise because of proximity to I-5 (but that also means access is very easy). Overall we enjoyed our stay and would come back.

We visited during the low season and almost had the park to ourselves; only a few other rigs. It was very quiet and in a nice setting. Power was adequate. Staff seldom on site; the main office was closed during our entire stay (three weeknights). A fair number of fishermen but at the other end of the park. We enjoyed kayaking on the lake, lots of waterfowl at this time of year. A bit of road noise but not bad at all. Overall, we'd certainly come back.

Date of Stay:

Very clean and quiet campground (despite proximity to highway). Easy in and easy out, big rigs no problem. Many monthlies/permanents at the back and around the perimeter, for the most part clean and uncluttered. Transients are given sites at the front. Concrete pad with grass 'yard' for each site; very clean and well maintained. All utilities OK including cable with lots of channels. Fairly large grass area near the office where dogs may be off leash; there is also a fenced dog run in the back. Not in the best of neighbourhoods (campground is fenced with gate closing at 7 PM) but we felt safe at all times. All services are only a few minutes away in Bakersfield. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice little park in a somewhat unexpected location. Our site (#14) was on the lake and well spaced from our neighbours (equally true for the vast majority of the sites in the park). The lake itself is not very large but will afford a nice, quick paddle. It is also stocked and fishermen are welcome. There is good hiking within and without the park, mostly desert floor and mesas. All utilities worked well and we had a strong Verizon signal; staff were very friendly and the ranger patrolled regularly. We would definitely stay here again.

Wow, we loved it here. The campground itself is well laid out, with sites spaced far enough away from each other to afford good privacy. The park is beautiful, including great views of Superstition Mountain from just about anywhere. Lots of hiking trails ranging from short walks to arduous, multi-hour climbs in adjacent Tonto National Forest (which includes Superstition Mountain). Moreover, the park's staff were exceedingly helpful when I discovered it was physically impossible for me to get into the site I had reserved online because of the size of our rig (see tips). The park manager himself came over and assessed the situation; he agreed and graciously offered that we stay the night in the (dry-camping) overflow while he tried to find a solution for the remainder of our stay. The next morning at 8:00, a park staff knocked on our door and explained that they had found us a suitable, non-reservable spot and were holding it for us for the remainder of the week. We moved and had a wonderful time during the following days. They even refunded us the rate difference between our reserved site and the overflow site for the first night despite the whole thing being pretty much my mistake. Not only will we make it a point to stay here again, I also wish to highlight the park staff's outstanding level of professionalism and helpfulness.

We stayed a couple of nights to avoid towing during a snowstorm (!); turns out we enjoyed the campground more than we expected. Very clean and well organized. No cable was a definite drawback as there wasn't much over the air. The whole campground is desert dirt, which is fine, but it does track inside a lot when snowy/wet... as expected. The sites themselves are nice and most are separated from their neighbours by tastefully arranged shrubs. They are on the short side, though, but they are wide enough that we could park both our little car and our pickup truck beside the fifth-wheel. That left no room at all. It's also good to know that the closest (complete) grocery store is almost 30 minutes away. All in all, though, we would certainly stay here again when in the area.
