Beautiful spot and views of Lake Powell, we were in Loop C and had full hookups and great views out the front window of RV (back-in). Couple reasons we are not giving a 10; first the showers are only located in the main office area and they charge for them. There are no showers in the loops, there are bathrooms which are conveniently located in each loop. We used our RV for showers for the 8 nights we stayed here, this means dumping the rig more frequently. Loop C is a long walk to the laundry, showers, and office/ store but the advantage was being up high in order to take in the views. The sites in this loop were huge and pretty private. If you are into views you don't want a pull-through that is facing the wrong way for putting your chairs out. The second issue is no TV (unless you bring your own satellite). Not a big deal but you'd think this park would have cable. The only thing we missed was news and although we could look on the computer the Wi-Fi was sketchy most of the time (third issue). Fourth issue is not being assigned a site when you make the reservation. On the last 3 nights we were here a huge group of teens came for the group camp which ends up being just above Loop C. Noise wasn't too bad but did get a bit irritated when they took short cuts through the camp sites to get to the showers & store. Laundry was fairly clean and reasonable cost for use. You can use the facilities (pool, etc) at the hotel. You do have to pay a park entrance fee coming into the park (each trip)...so suggest you buy a $10 senior pass for life. As previously stated there are lots of places to see around the area and we would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice park w/very wide spaces, 2 rows of drive on grass sites, the end rows had back in w/concrete pad & backs up to other RV campgrounds on either side. We were in site A27 which is a bit more costly because it is at the very end & has a great river view with lots of grass & privacy. Very nice managers, laundry room was clean & pretty inexpensive. The reason it didn't get a 10 is because of lousy WiFi at our site and they charge for it ($1 day, but discounted to .50 appreciated). They also charge for electric based on meter reading for this site, some of the others are $7 a day. They have free cable TV; however it's via a box which you have to connect inside. If you don't have satellite or easy access to the back of your TV be prepared & have lots of length of cable to run from the pole to your RV ($60 deposit for box). My husband said the men's bath was clean, the women's not so great, 2 shower stalls, the curtains need to be replaced & one of the floors is in sorry shape, I give the bathrooms a 4. The park is Very dog friendly so that's a 10 for us. Looked like the best place compared to the others we saw.

This is a nice place for a quick overnight stop. There are long pull-through sites and you don't have to unhook your tow. The place was only occupied by us and one other. It's gravel and level, easy hookups, some trees, large plants on the sides. Laundry was older but nice, plenty of washers, bath was old but clean, shower stalls were small. Manager nice guy only been there 2 months. All the stores in front are closed. Gas across the highway, easy access and good prices. There is also a store. You can stop here and save a few $ instead of doing Beatty. Free good Wi-Fi, no TV.

Decent and pretty clean, sites are close together. A bit of grass on the side with a table on concrete pad. Room for pull through, easy hookups. Used the laundry, could be cleaned and swept more frequently. Baths were fairly clean, small shower areas. Wi-Fi was free and worked, at the time we were there TV service was out. This is not a large park and there are some full timers in the back in sites, not an issue. If you take an end unit close to the street there will be traffic noise from Main Street. Good street tacos at a hole in the wall place a few blocks down on Main St.-order window/no restaurant inside: Jehova es mi Pastor e Taco.

This is a funky, clean campground. Sites are long and plenty of room as a pull-through. The width of the sites are not very roomy but you can pick your site and there is plenty of empty sites between. You drive and park on nice green grass which is level and hookups are easy. Very peaceful and QUIET area out in the middle of nowhere. Convenient to drive to Lava Beds. No TV, great Wi-Fi (instant connect), lots of deer and rabbits to watch. Only1 shared bath/shower room and it's up a small hill, not a great looking area (funky but clean). No laundry but web site says it's under construction and owners will do a load for you. We were here mid-summer, lots of flies around the grass, couldn't sit outside too long even with fly spray. The "play" area doesn't look finished either and a porta potty is nearby. The owner and manager are very nice, willing to please; they just need to finish what they started. We would stay here again and if you want to get away from typical campgrounds for some peace and quiet this is the place to come. Bring what you need as there is no store in Tionesta, looks like the other campground nearby might have one, but didn't check it out. We would have given a higher score but for the flies. There are 2 goats in a pen which didn't help the fly situation with the heat.

Nice park, clean sites and they were scattered so you aren't on top of each other. Grass area, table and fire pit at each site. Trash cans conveniently located around the park. Other reviews are right on. There is 1 shower for men, 1 for women, they are clean and roomy. As one reviewer stated this is a "rustic" park, it is "decorated" this way in that the buildings and grounds have that look. There are quite a few full time residents, some in trailers or mobile homes....not an issue but if you look closely there are areas that could use a clean-up. Used the laundry; it was clean and convenient. Would stay here again, owners very nice and accommodating.

Price does not reflect $3 charge for making the reservation online. Hookups inconvenient, water spigot it situated so you can't put a splitter on it. We had a pull thru, had to unhitch the tow first to get the motor home in line for connections. The trees on sites don't really provide shade, grass is not green, they did mow while we were there which made it more presentable. Lots of kids during the weekend using pool, etc. Did not use baths, showers or laundry. We had moved here from a 10 park in McMinnville because we wanted to stay another 3 nights visiting friends. Had also read on a review that the management required notice when leaving or would charge another night....this wasn't verbalized at check in, however, we did drop a note in the mailbox the am of leaving just to be safe (ridiculous little rule).

Very clean, quiet park, showers, laundry, baths very clean also! Called ahead about 2 large dogs, instant approval-so not an issue. No charge for one dog, 50 cents a day for the second one. As previous reviewer said, nice concrete pads, tables, grass. Plenty of room for tow on the side or in front (we had a back-in). It was nice for dogs as big grassy field for them to walk. Seems to be the best for the area and would recommend.

Lovely campground with river sites & views, make your reservation early! If you take a pull through you will have a great view of the river. We made a late reservation & only had space #28 back-in available. It was on a corner so had lots of room with grass & flowers, and dogs loved it! So the issue with the trains. Yes close & loud, the farther into the park you go the louder it is (end). It didn't really bother us & we were closer to the front. If you don't like the noise don't stay here, enough said! The flowers & veggies the owners have planted in the park are great, well maintained & lots of grass, totally dog friendly. Read the other good reviews, we concur.

Price does not include $8 registration fee. We reserved on ReserveAmerica site in advance - easy. When you look at the ReserveAmerica map for sites (loop B) for RVs etc., we got the impression the sites on the outside (back ins) have a view of the river, they don't. Also, the pull-throughs were easier to maneuver and show on the map that they are on the inside. Not an issue because the road is narrow for both the back-ins and pull-throughs and neither have a view. You have to walk on a dirt path to the river. Nice but wear mosquito spray. Laundry consists of 1 washer and 1 dryer for whole park. There is 1 shower in Loop A and one in Loop B, separate from toilets. We stayed in B08 it was nice facing in with lots of room. Also, don't gas up in Klamath if traveling north on 97, wait and get gas at Travel Center/Casino, good prices and easy in/out. About 7 miles from turnoff. Nice drive to Crater Lake (35 miles or so). P.S. Weird set up for dump, it doesn't face up, it's side ways, so you may have a time putting in your hose. :)

The reviewer from May pretty much says it all. Owner was very nice, lovely flowers, grass. Free Wi-Fi which was great. TV was via park's antenna connection, with 6 channels. Took a pull-through in the center--no shade trees, grass between sites with a table, good hookups. The back-in spaces that had shade had a mix of available sites and some had permanents (not an issue at all). This is a small, quiet campground, the dog fenced area was large but again no shade. Dogs were able to be off leash which was nice. There is a Shell station across the street; gas prices were high! We chose this park over going to Susanville because of the comments by a reviewer rating one of the parks a 1.

Good spot for an overnight stay. As mentioned before it is on 95 but quiet at night. Free Wi-Fi, no TV, 2 bath/shower combo's - clean. Owner very nice and helpful. Nothing special here; no shade or trees,it was hot so stayed in motor home. It is about 3 miles north of town. In June 2013 we stayed in town at another RV park; this was a good one also with pool access, trees have grown. We just did this place because it was less $ and we were passing through to Oregon.

Second stay here on our way north (see June 2013 review) Very clean, free wifi, TV. Concrete pad was about $2 more than regular gravel site - we went for the extras. Just as nice as it was the first time last year. Will stay here again, especially since there is nothing else.

Nice park for overnight/passing thru. Restrooms & showers clean & excellent water pressure. Wifi was free & excellent. Did not use cable TV. Management/owner was very nice & helpful. We stayed in space 85, near restrooms....there is room for car or tow next to motor home but we didn't need to unhitch tow, there was just enough length for both (32 + tow). Park is in an industrial area, quiet at night, not much to see...long terms were parked around the sides (back ins), clean quiet. It was very hot, hardly any shade but fine for an overnight.

Rate includes tax, and no charge for our 2 dogs. Free Wi-Fi, no cable TV. They take checks or cash, no credit cards. Excellent park, we've stayed here about 3 or 4 times on our way to and from home in Prescott. Large wide spaces, clean. Ask for site #12, which has a covered gazebo over the table for some shade. Laundry, baths very clean, management very nice. Park is right off 60 but very little traffic noise at night as it is not a busy highway. It's located about 6 miles from Salome, blink & you are by it! Easy in and out, nice friendly seasonals (snowbirds). Only suggestion would be to put up a fenced area for dogs, plenty of room to do this. Think it would be nice for seasonals to have this.
