Hard to rate a parking lot. No rating for service, no idea where the people collecting money are located. No rating for cleanliness, it's a gravel and asphalt lot with a plug, a faucet and a hole. Front row seats to the weekend flea market across the street. No campsite numbers, just power poles in the ground at the back of back-in spaces. It is completely surrounded, on every side, by train tracks so if you are a light sleeper, it might be a problem.

Great stay with other motorhome friends. Not a new place but clean and neat. Laundry machines and restrooms with showers but we didn't use either. Packed dirt, fairly level pull-through sites long enough for our 45' motorhome and towed. Came for the 29th Annual World's Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cook-Off and weekend music at the Barn. Quiet when we arrived but it filled to capacity by Friday night. The Beach was not yet water filled but it looked as if it would be enjoyable. Loved the music in the Barn, free for those camping at the Park. The Barn is non-smoking which is a big plus for me. Wish the owners would make a smoking area further away from the front door as dozens gathered inches from the front door making it hard to get in without breathing the clouds of smoke. Lots of things for kids to do. Lake fishing, playgrounds and the beach, when open. Mostly families. We were at the back of the park by the lake and it was quiet even on the night of the Barn music. Everyone was very considerate about keeping quiet after "quiet time" and we didn't hear the Barn music from our motorhome. A bit dusty up front but not dusty where we were staying. Had fun so we will return and probably bring friends and family.

This is a beautiful clean well maintained Resort. Most of the staff are friendly. Tight turns on the ends of the rows but roomy elsewhere. There are lawns between each cement pad and mowers come each Wednesday to keep them trimmed. Lots of rules so read through the information when you arrive so as not to end up with a warning taped to your door. The Resort has a swimming pool, bar-b-q pavilion, game room, exercise room, event room, laundry, restrooms and showers, a dog area and a playground. Take a first or second row if you have elder pups as the dog walk is along the fence on the first row and it is not acceptable to walk them through other sites. The owners believe in strong scented plug-ins everywhere so if you have asthma or COPD, enter buildings carefully as they can quickly become overpowering. We have stayed here often but of late, have had problems that are quickly becoming a reason to look elsewhere. Not one, but two 45 foot rigs, one was ours, were damaged within a two week period by the contract mowers. Neither the owners nor the mower company are accepting responsibility and the estimate for ours is almost $4 thousand. Considering a large part of this resorts appeal was the claim of on-site camera's for our safety and protection, damage by the owners contractors was an unpleasant surprise. Another customer service unpleasant surprise was when we signed up weeks prior to inviting 3 couples over for card games, last minute we were switched from the room I can tolerate, to a room that smells so strong of air fresheners that I am unable to enter. When we explained why we didn't want to change, even though no one was using the room until the next night, we were still refused so I stayed in our rig alone and hubby visited with our friends. Yes, it is a beautiful resort and has lots of amenities, but customer service and the safety of repeat clients with high dollar rigs should be of concern to the owners and it is not. When paying top dollar for a site, it really should. Go, enjoy, but watch when they mow.

Nice clean park and facilities, friendly staff, snug fit but comfortable, gravel patio with picnic table, asphalt pad and drive ways, easy in and out, some highway noise but located in town so you are close to everything. We had to have our towed fixed and the front desk was very helpful with rental cars and grocery stores for our stay. I did hear some overhead planes but not often. Trash pick up at your site, free WiFi and everything worked great. Loved the dog parks. Nice stay, no complaints.

This was a great overnight if you can sleep though anything. No one commented on the train whistles that go off every 15 minutes (I timed it) until way past my bedtime (10:00pm) and we were only staying for one night after a long day of driving. We left early the next morning for another long day of driving. The sites are long, level and gravel with a cement pad and a picnic table. No road noise but the trains were determined to let everyone within miles know that they were coming through. The staff is very friendly, older restrooms/showers but very clean, nice washer/dryer facility, free coffee and muffin in the morning. Reasonable rates, places to walk your dog, easy access to shopping. Lots of permanents but fairly well kept, 50amp worked great as did our WiFi and cable. I realize that they can’t do anything about the train noise but a “heads up” from others would have been appreciated for us lite sleepers.

We have stayed here the last two years while we volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We love the peaceful star studded nights and beautiful canyon views during the day. You have full hook-ups, 50 amp, water, sewer and a cement pad with a small patio and picnic table next to your space. There are some Juniper trees, bushes and cacti in-between the sites but the pads are staggered so it gives you a little more privacy. Both sites are back in but easy to maneuver. Close to the highway but no street noise and nothing but peace and quiet after the sun goes down. Pet friendly but there are burrs and stickers so fur baby feet beware. Some deer pass through the sites and turkeys are nearby. We reserve site 2 as the pad is a little longer so our 45’ fits with the jacks on cement. A 15 minute ride to the town of Kanab with grocery shopping, restaurants, hardware store and post office among other things. An hour away from Zion and a bit longer to Bryce, both worth visiting. Great Verizon reception, WiFi and TV through our satellite. These sites stay full so book early. We book a year in advance.

Great for an overnight spot near Portland. I was worried about noise because I-5, an access road, and a gas station surrounded us but even though I am a lite sleeper, I slept fine. The staff was friendly. The swimming pool, laundry facility, bathrooms, and showers were clean. It was pet friendly and our 45' RV with four slides fit nicely in the pull through; although, we didn't pull out our awning and I don't think it would have fit. Shopping and restaurants are near by, Portland is about 20 minutes away, neighbors were nice and most long term sites were neat and following the rules. We would stay short term again if looking for a place near Portland.

Nice quiet park setting close to the river, plenty of room for our 45' with 4 slides, easy in and out, gravel site, close to shopping and the airport. Only $33 per night, but a one time $10 reservation fee, which bumps up the price if only staying one night. New laundry with big machines, clean restrooms and showers but we didn't use them. Nice dog park at the entrance but mostly for big dogs. Tents, trailers and big rigs all had plenty of room. Never did see the hosts and the office was closed our whole stay but the park was nice and clean.

Loved the park! Clean, level, quiet, not to far from shopping, friendly hosts, no fires which are a plus for someone with COPD. On the minus side, only one shower for the guys and one for the ladies so we had to go when the fishermen were gone. Plenty of room for our 45' rig with 4 slides and a huge parking place for our towed. Fair price for such a great space. They even had a nice picnic table next to each site.

This is a beautiful group campground with 11 campsites that have fire-pits and picnic tables. There is room for additional tents. It is reservation only and you pay $130 for all 11 sites. There is a central fire-pit surrounded by 6 picnic tables, horseshoe pits, volley ball area, covered pavilion with electricity and water, one long counter with a cold water sink, picnic tables and a large grill. There are clean vault toilets on site with flush toilets and sinks across the street. A swimming hole on Rock Creek is also across the street. It is pet friendly but you must keep them on a leash. Friendly hosts and plenty of privacy.

You must be an Elk to stay here. Most of the sites were filled with long term permanent residents or units in storage. A bit disheveled but OK for one night. Close to shopping, nice park in back of the Lodge, fairly level gravel sites, friendly camp host, places to walk your dog, WiFi worked great and hook-ups worked great. Big negative for me was the road noise and, until 11:23 pm, the National Guard airport (across the street) flying their helicopters over our heads. Hard to get used to the noise if you are only staying one or two nights. We usually love our Elks Lodge stays but this one we will pass up next time through.

Quiet, clean, neat and tidy but mostly permanent sites, pull through with plenty of room for our 44.6' rig and four slides plus towed to park and maneuver in and out. A small patch of grass and level sites. TV cable box is free with a deposit that is returned when you return the box. Pet area is at the back of the park. Bathrooms and showers were clean, staff was friendly. Passport America price. Just standard fare, no extras but a great deal for a few nights stay. Will return when in the area.

There are many campgrounds that make up Riverside State Park. The one I am reviewing is Bowl and Pitcher. Beautiful treed campground with two levels, one up by the entrance and one right on the river. There are no full hook-ups by the river except for the host site, but if there isn't a host you can camp in the site. Two pull-through sites and the rest back-in. Several are big rig friendly. The rest of the lower campsites are 30 and 50 amp and water (Winter before April 15 the water is off at the sites but flush toilets and fee showers are on) Vault toilets on either end in the reserve group camping area. Upper campground has several full hook-up sites but not a good fit for a big rig and only back in sites, flush toilets and pay shower in the middle, mostly sites for tents and a dump that is free for campers. There are lots of hiking and biking trails, a swinging suspension bridge, easy walking down by the river and canoe launches in several areas. There is an equestrian center and an off road vehicle area, a rental house at the entrance and a large group camping outdoor kitchen in the center of the bike/motorbike camp ground near the suspension bridge. Great kids and pet friendly campground with friendly hosts and clean restrooms.

Went with middle of the road for this small but clean and level gravel pad park. Accepts Good Sam and Passport America so we paid $17.50 which was what it is worth for a no frills park. We had water and electric hook-up only, port-a-potties near-by, no showers, no place for groups to meet, limited fire pits, tables, and a few trees. Surrounded by cows and horses so it has the scent of a farm. Train could be seen and heard from our site, TV and WiFi worked fine but we do have a booster. It's not really what I would call dog friendly as we were asked to have our pug potty only in the pet area. We requested a site next to the area so she wouldn’t have to hold it until she reached the potty area. Not sure that older dogs could hold it long enough to make it to the “area” if you stayed at the far ends. We would stay here again for an overnight but only if we could stay close to the “area” as our pug is our fur baby.

OK for an overnight. Front desk is friendly and helpful. It's hard to rate an RV park by the noise level but we came here to relax for 4 nights and I got little sleep. To be fair, I am a light sleeper and did ask for a site further back from the road but was not given one because of our large size. 18 wheeler air brakes sounded throughout the night from the rest area for trucks less than 30 feet from our rig and the park is located under the airport's landing pattern. The sites were very narrow, rock with slivers of grass alongside. Had to play with our levelers to achieve balance, a very tight squeeze for a 45' with four slides and a towed. A bit expensive for what you get but as close to the Canadian border as we have found. Very clean and spacious bathrooms and showers but we have that already in our rig. The only other minus was the grumpy grounds person mowing the lawns. Asked where the dog area was and he directed me off the property in the far back of the park. I hobbled all the way back there with the aide of my cane. When I finally found the park map, the dog area is actually along the incoming road. Yes, we will probably stay here again because of the location, but not for more than a night.
