We were assigned to the "No Reservations" area to site 63. After setting up it started to rain lightly and shortly thereafter the 30 amp circuit breaker popped and could not be reset. Since we don't need 30 amps I tried the 15 amp ... same thing. I then cabled over to site #62 to the 50 amp and all was well. So after talking to the host, moved to site 62. I suspect the problem is water/resistance related. l asked about AT&T signal there and was told probably not, and Verizon would be spotty. Nevertheless since I had tiny intermittent signal on my Nexus 5 phone I set up a Wilson Amplifier outside, ran a cable inside to an amplifier and small antenna and we had Internet for the rest of our stay. My dollar of course, since it was using my data. However ... this is vacation and this is where I want to stay. The sites are immaculate and water spigots are close by. The walking trail I loved ... around the perimeter of the park, about 2.3 miles and perfect for dog walking.

1st the management .... friendly and easy to talk to. The park is new and spacious but things don't work as advertised. We NEED the Internet to function and the Internet here is non-functional. I see one small antenna on the office building but it's spotty on connection, and we are close to the office. So most of the time we use the data off our limited amount on cell phone. I went over $30 worth on our stay here. My opinion is that if you're going to advertise make sure it works ... it does not. Second ... they advertise cable TV ... there is no cable at site 23. The pigtail is there, but it's wired with a male connector. I had an adapter though, and scanned for channels ... none came up. Tried again the next day, same thing. Raised my antenna and got 5 local .... so that's good enough, but don't advertise cable if it's broken. This is a good location ... you can walk to McDonalds easily, and I walked to the hospital and the community college. This will probably be busy when my grandson graduates.

This is a new site with gravel sites, grassy areas, small trees and concrete tables that can't be stolen. A little high in nightly cost but the bathrooms/laundry room is spacious, new and spotless, and the wifi is probably as fast as your home Internet .... well, 3.7 Mbps as measured with the accurate testmy.net. And the reason is that the wifi comes from the Best Western which is less than 100 yds away, but not obtrusive. The Best Western actually blocks off train noise pretty well. This place is a hidden gem in my opinion .... hidden in more ways than one. Hidden as the best way for access is on the pavement on the west end of the Best Western and weave your way to the back. If you come in by Google GPS as I did it will lead you there by a dirt road which will scare you, but it takes you right there. The second gem is that Best Western offers campers a Continental Breakfast for $6 ... and this is not the standard Continental Breakfast. Scrambled eggs, thick ham, waffles, bisquits and sausage gravy, real orange juice, coffee and much more. It was my turn to cook breakfast ... and this was where went.

There is no better place to stay. Good friendly service, excellent scenery, superb gift shop (which my wife says is in the top 3 of all we've gone to) ... and the best Mexican food you'll find anywhere at Broken Arrow 12 miles north (but check what times they are open) Be sure you ask for Maria's "Huckleberry/Peach" pie when you finish your meal. It's worth shipping home. The park is along the Salmon River ... like 50' if you want and the sites gravel with abundant grass. wifi works well where we were ... #3.

We had reservations for May 19 & 20, 2015 for a center site on the west side. My 1st observation indicated it would be too short unless we unhooked which we did not want to do, so we opted for the end site, 1st row on the west side. We setup, put the slide out and the coffee on and then found out we had no wifi. I reported to the manager and his reply was that, "Yeah, it's not too good on that end", but if you want to move closer to the office it should work there". Not especially thrilled about the word "should" we moved and setup again. In that spot the wifi worked for about 2 hours when the SSID disappears. Thinking it will come back I waited for a couple of hours to see. It did not so I tracked down the manager again and we trotted over to a dish installed and found out that he had unplugged and moved the router. He re-plugged it back in but no go and I left thinking they might have it fixed in a couple of hours. They didn't and no one came back to apologize and say that they were working on. We never had Internet again and we had no contact with management after that. No offer of a reduced rate nor a reduction on a return trip. For the poor service I would not return to this RV Park. The site we were in was labeled as a "Pull Through" but there was no way I could pull through because the trailer in the site directly ahead was too close to make the turn, so I had to back out. And the dog runs listed on the site brochure are not dog runs ... they are tiny strips of grass up against a chain link fence about a foot out and about 15' long. So ... a little misadvertising here. Also, all the black water hookups are in the center of the site which means if you have a trailer you will need to pull into the site ahead to dump. The reason I make a reservation for a pull through is for easy ingress and egress. It wasn't. The park is very well kept, the scenery beautiful and the greenbelt along the highway nice. But I won't be back.

You probably won't find better hi-speed wifi anyplace. The park was clean and the parking spacious. They were doing some remodeling on the office when we were there. We would go again.

This park is so nice that we came back at the end of the first week and stayed again. It could not be any more well-kept. Everything is trimmed and painted to perfection and it could not be a better bargain for what it costs you. For treats and fast food there is a Chevron station right next door. We will stay here again for sure.

This is a beautiful park and everything was immaculate and beautifully groomed. it is adjacent to a lumber yard that runs 24 hours a day but we could scarcely hear it. Part of the campground is a country kitchen which has the best breakfast and lunch you will probably find. If we come by this way again we will definitely want to stay here. Make reservations, you won't be sorry.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here four 4 nights in Sept to visit friends in the area. The sites are packed and in ours (close to the office) you parked parallel to your rig. You probably won't put up your awning. The management was tidy and kept things orderly and timely. I would give him a 10. I can't fault a park for being old but this park needs some TLC. The main sign is falling apart and there are areas that need attention. Still, I would stay here again. The biggest surprise was how quiet our site (77) was, since the park was adjacent to the freeway. But it's location near Bellevue makes it very attractive. If you're not real fussy this is a good place to make camp.

We stayed in site #7. Grassy level sites, long pull-throughs, quiet location, good Wi-Fi, and just a walk from town. Great food at the Council Cafe at a bargain price. Park appears well kept but is in the process of being acquired by a new owner. Hopefully it does not close down, because at the price of $30 for full hookups it is a good deal. We would stay again for sure.

Beautiful location, squeaky clean, and as friendly and helpful as you will ever find. Call ahead to make sure a site is available. You won't be sorry if you need a couple of nights rest. I didn't see motorhomes, but I'm sure they have the sites available.

We stayed here 3 nights in early May while we visited the colonies. Grassy sites, very long and good spacing between rigs. Quiet at night and close to town and the price was right. Not much more that you could ask for. No cable but antenna TV came in strong and clear. Full hook-ups and all sites are pull through. Come here before or after the tourist season and you will love it because the waiting lines in the colonies will be shorter. Quaint shops with reasonable prices. Take home some local beer (Millstream Brewing) or German brauts and a bottle of raspberry wine. Check out the seconds at the Woolen Mill too. Restaurant meals cost less then most places. All of the above are good reasons to stay at the Amana RV Park.

I cannot fault the KOA staff as they were helpful and friendly but they did not seem to be very knowledgeable about what I was requesting. We wanted one of the quieter sites since my wife has difficulty in sleeping by noisy freeways but they assigned us a site in about the center of the facilities. Even then I had to ask if I could reverse our entry so that our bedroom would be away from the freeway. The following morning when I walked the grounds I noticed that all of the back rows were empty ... and even though this is a smaller RV Park, this would have been much better for us. To add insult to injury this is one of the more expensive parks ($48.14) even though it is not yet the tourist season in early May. Other more elaborate KOAs are about $10 less (like the KOA in Rapid City, SD. So my rating would be a 9 for the staff and a 3 for the value received.

If you like peace and quiet this is the place to stay. Only 6 miles from downtown Havre, this is a smaller grassy campground and surprisingly, has excellent and consistent wifi. We've been on the road RVing for the past 4 weeks and none of the previous RV sites we stayed at (all were Sam Parks) surpassed this RV park in wifi. All sites are grassy and many have shaded areas. Bathrooms were clean but could use a hook or two, but that's a minor detail. Lawn areas were well trimmed. We would definitely stay here again.
