This was the worst place we have ever stayed! The facilities are run-down and mediocre. The wi-fi only works if you are right under the tower, and does not work all over the campground. (false advertising) I tried to use the washing machine, carefully following the directions, and it wouldn't start. I went to the office and the woman there was furious because I didn't know there was some goofy trick to jiggling the door. She became even more upset when I pointed to the directions on the machine, which did not mention the trick door. The restroom toilets and sinks were okay, but the shower floors looked cruddy. Worst of all, the entire campground is littered with broken pieces of concrete tire stops, which are used to separate the campsites. I tripped and fell over one of them in the dark and dislocated and fractured three bones in my ankle, which eventually required surgery with plates and screws, and months to recover. Immediately after falling, I went to the emergency room, then we came back to camp to pack up and leave. I phoned the office and told the obnoxious woman who answered the phone what had happened. I suggested they remove the trip and fall hazards, and she rudely refused to consider the suggestion. I told her we now have to leave a day early and asked if they could at least do the decent thing and refund the money for the unused day, and she said no; there are no refunds. Even if a guest is seriously injured. This place is DANGEROUS and the management has a callous disregard for guests safety. I will NEVER go to Quartzsite again, unless it is to sue B10 Campground.

We stayed here at their busiest time and so we didn't have the best spot, but it was fine for our 4 days there. I couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work, but it is possible that the problem may have been with my computer, and we were really too busy to bother with it. The facilities were all fine and well maintained, especially the clubhouse and jacuzzi. Laundry was not expensive, but many machines were out of order. We thought that for the low price, we got a lot of bang for our bucks.

If this park was $35, I would have given it an 8. We thought it was overpriced. We only needed a place to sleep for one night, and did not look at the washrooms or laundry, or try to log on to the Wi-Fi, so we cannot comment about the amenities. Water, sewer, electric, and cable TV were fine. The sites are quite some distance from the beach, and are weedy grass and gravel, with a few trees. Staff was very nice.

This is a beautiful park! We were only there for one night, and decided not to stay longer because we had to be on our way and also because it was so hot. The sites are huge, spread out, very grassy, with a lot of big shade trees, and the Lewis and Clark center was fascinating. The rangers were pleasant and friendly and obviously enjoyed their jobs.

You get a terrific amount of bang for your bucks here. If it weren’t for the lousy Wi-Fi, we would have given it a 10. The laundry room is the best-equipped RV park laundry I have ever seen! It only cost $2 to wash and dry a large load. There is a cute little creek with a wide spot for a swimming hole, a very nice playground if you bring kids, lots of trees, and hookups worked fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and was apologetic and frustrated with the Wi-Fi problem.

When we were there, they were only allowing hard sided rigs, vans, etc., because of a bear problem. We never saw any bears or other interesting wildlife; just chipmunks and birds. The sites cannot accommodate large rigs. We have a 30’ motorhome, and it was a tight squeeze. There was a nice dump station and good quality potable water, but no hookups. We drove our small dinghy car across Logan Pass; vehicles over about 24 feet are not allowed there, and for good reasons.

Parts of this park are beautifully landscaped and maintained, and parts are a just a tad shabby. The laundry and washrooms were fine, and the staff was great. We thought it wasn’t worth the high fees, especially since the Wi-Fi didn’t work. The people are wonderful in Canada. But, I guess, as Californians, we were a bit shocked by the high prices. Canmore itself is a very charming town, and a good “jumping off” point for visiting the magnificent Canadian Rockies.

This would be a great forested campground if you could go outdoors without being eaten alive by the vicious mosquitoes. If we had known the mosquitoes were so unbearable, we would not have gone there. Otherwise, for a dry campsite, the facilities were okay. We would have rated it a 7 or 8 if it weren’t for the awful bugs. And we thought it was terribly expensive. In addition to the campsite fee, there is a $9.80 fee per person, per day to enter Canadian National Parks. There were 2 of us, so we paid $48 per day to stay there. Ouch! But seeing Lake Louise for the first time was worth it.

We enjoyed a lakeside spot with Wi-Fi, water, sewer, and electric hookups which all worked fine. We did not use the washrooms and showers, so we can’t say anything about that. No cable TV or laundry, either. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The place would be great for water sports; boating, fishing, swimming, jet and water ski, etc. The area is all grassy with no paved sites and very little gravel, but for only $30, we were fine with that. And we quickly learned that the Canadian people are so very, very friendly, polite, cordial, and helpful!

We just needed a place to park overnight and for only $20 we couldn’t be too fussy. And a dry parking place was what we got. The restrooms were awful; fortunately we are self-contained. We were lucky to find anything; it was our first time in Canada, and we didn’t realize that it was the beginning of a major 3 day weekend. Our spot was by a by a beautiful river, and walking distance to the little town. Wi-Fi worked great. And the staff was really nice, eh?

Like the others, I would have given this a 10 if it weren’t for the lousy Wi-Fi. Also, there are very tall pipes above some of the sites for ventilating sewer gas and when one of the neighbors dumped their tank, the smell was really nasty. I had to get someone to use a ladder and dump some pine sol in the pipe to stop the disgusting odor. But the park is beautifully landscaped and well maintained. The 2 pond/lakes are very attractive. We had a beautiful lakeside spot and we were not bothered by bugs. Laundry was only $1 to wash and $1 to dry. Very nice restrooms. It was a great base for visiting the Seattle attractions. We recommend driving a dinghy 3.3 miles to the Kenmore Park and Ride, then taking the bus to downtown Seattle and the monorail to the Space Needle.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days there. The staff was friendly and efficient. The Wi-Fi, hookups, cell all worked fine. The beautiful landscape, flowers, pond, clean rest rooms, and inexpensive laundry were great. And the manager even babysat our dog from 7:00am until 10:00pm (for a small fee) while we took the ferry to Victoria. There is a fantastic doggie playground, complete with toys and a small wading pool. The location is a great base for visiting the many local attractions. Sequim is a beautiful place.

This park was absolutely delightful! The staff was so friendly and helpful; they even treated us to delicious homemade cookies! They provide community firepits and firewood; which keeps the smoke out of the campsites. The buildings were attractive and well-maintained. The riverfront is very beautiful. We just needed a place to spend one night and never expected to find something so nice.

We thought that this park was one of the worst we have ever visited because it is so over priced. This dumpy, shabby place was not worth the $53.99 for only one night. The Wi-Fi only works near the office. They wouldn't let me bring my computer into the office, but suggested I use a nearby picnic table outdoors in the drizzle and cold! The sites are in deplorable condition: weedy, half dead grass, a "patio" smaller than the picnic table, ugly laundry room and rest rooms. It would have been okay for about $20-$30 but $53.99 is ridiculous. The staff was very busy patrolling with binoculars and walkies-talkies to make sure that no one was trespassing on to the property. Anyone who sets foot on their precious private beach must pay $6 and they were far more focused on that than on the paying guests already there. We would absolutely NOT recommend this park to anyone.

This is one of our favorite parks. It is clean and well maintained; especially, the swimming pool and hot tub. A great place to spend the summer. At the back (north) end of the park, we could hear the long trains coming through day and night, so next time we will ask for a site closer to the south end. The noise was muffled by the thick and dense row of trees between the park and the tracks. They should think about up-grading the rest rooms and showers in a couple years, but they are clean and okay, just showing some wear. There are some social activities offered, as well. We think this park offers a lot of "bang for the bucks".
