Beautiful state park just outside of Cottonwood, good hiking trails, spacious sites. This is the second time we've stayed here and probably won't be the last. Verizon and AT&T worked well.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects monthly stay, excluding the additional $77 utility charge at the end of the month. This was a mega RV park with 2000 sites, our site wasn't bad to get into except for the grapefruit tree. Bad placement of the trees on each site. Friendly people, clean facilities, huge park with tons of things to do. Had HUGE issues with Verizon data here, just too many people trying to access the same cell tower, was very difficult to actually get much work accomplished. Hated looking out our back window to the back of a park model home, felt very claustrophobic in this park, not our kind of place to stay.

Date of Stay:

Relatively small campground, sites varied in size, our site backed up to a wall with an apartment complex on the other side. Good location if you have to be in Tempe, very small laundry facilities. Friendly staff, our site was very easy to get into, long term resident next to us was not very friendly about moving his car so we could put our slides out. He obviously felt he was entitled to more room than his site gave him so it didn't give us a good feeling to start out. Small patio next to the RV with barely enough room to park our truck.

Date of Stay:

Friendly people, we only stayed here because we were flying out for the family Christmas visit and needed somewhere to park our rig and have our pet sitter come in. It's clean, but one of those mega RV parks with 1000's of RVs, sites were close together, way closer than we like. Clean laundry facilities, but needed a card to operate that you can only get from an office.

Beautiful, natural setting with lots of hiking trails. Convenient to Mesa without being in the city. Verizon and AT&T worked well. Stayed here a year ago, restrooms do not seem to be as well maintained. Also feel it's a bit pricey for just W/E hookups compared to most county / state parks we stay in, but it's a beautiful location and a nice place to hang out for a couple of weeks.

Date of Stay:

Loved this park, lots of hiking trails, spacious sites, good Verizon and AT&T coverage, close to town for groceries / supplies but very quiet and feeling that you are a long way away from civilization in the campground. Loved it, will return, already have a stay planned here next spring.

Date of Stay:

Was happy to have a place to stop for the night that was a pull thru, with the high temps we really wanted AC. Their temporary sites are 30 AMP only so could only run one AC unit at a time. It was convenient for visiting friends in the area, but not a place I'd want to spend a long period of time.

Date of Stay:

Probably not somewhere we'll stay again. Sites are reasonably spaced, some have a little shade but when it's a hot summer day, even with trees in the sites, shade had a marginal impact. The 30 amp electric was a bit "finicky", losing power a couple of times during the night. Verizon MiFi was relatively slow out here. Our spot had a significant slope at the back of it so we parked the 5th wheel close to the front of the site which left very limited room for parking our truck. Gate closes at 6 PM at which time you have to call to be let into the park; felt very secure here. Just a long way from anywhere and with the 30 amp hookups acting up when it was very hot outside, it was just an okay stay.

Date of Stay:

We were only passing through for a couple of nights. The sites were relatively close together and due to the position of the power pedestal we could not leave the truck connected to the 5th wheel, even in a pull-through spot. This would not be convenient for a one night stopover. Park has a lot of long term residents. Sites are kept nice. They tend to put all the transients together in the pull-through spots. Located in a quiet neighborhood, further away from the freeway than other Boise RV parks. Worked out okay for us and would consider staying here again if we had to be in Boise.

Beautiful state park with good sites for large RVs. Our Verizon MiFi worked well, even without a booster antenna. Great walking trails in the park and the lake is absolutely beautiful. Spacious sites, a beautiful lake, a town close by that had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay here again when passing through this area.

Camping is in a large grassy field near the arena. Weekends and evenings you share the area with the horses / riders and their rigs as they come for practice or riding events. Other than that, it's a very quiet campground, probably the cheapest on Whidbey Island. Has suited our purposes well for a place to hang out before and after their annual art show. Nothing special about the campground itself, space between rigs is very dependent on how people choose to park. We had a nice large site for 7 out of our 10 days and for 3 days had a motorhome that pulled in 5 feet behind us and blocked our limited view of Useless Bay. The fairgrounds are populated by bunnies, a past 4H program that went awry. Great entertainment for pets that travel with you as they watch all the bunny antics.

Easy to access, parking is a grassy field, nothing special but inexpensive place to stay in the Seattle area. One nice feature was a Cenex truck that came through every Wednesday. Nice to have propane filled on site instead of taking the tanks somewhere. Camp host is a very personable woman who runs a tight ship. Verizon coverage was OK for both data and cell was weak, worked better with boosters, but was not real strong.

The only plus to this state park is the location close to Seattle. Beware - it is difficult for a big rig. We have a 38 ft 5th wheel and the road into the park was very windy, lots of tall trees, I would advise people to not try to navigate this in the dark or at dusk when towing. Park really needs to trim some trees if they want to make this big rig friendly. Our site was B49, right next to the ampitheather. Supposedly a pull-through site, but no way could we make the turn around the tree in the curved part of the site. We ended up backing in from the other side of our site. Verizon coverage was awful in this park, Sprint and AT&T was okay, but only with boosters, no coverage without boosting equipment. Park is a bit run down due to lack of funding. Not sure we'll ever stay here again even though we have friends to visit within 5 miles of this location. Way too expensive for the hassle. Day use fees are collected at this park and you can end up with a very long back up to get into the park. They do not have a separate lane in the entry area for those that are already checked in and paid. Waited in line 20 minutes one time, just to get into the park.

I rated this low. For $25/night it had to be the worst WA state park we have ever stayed in. Sites 1-4 are the ones where supposedly the large RVs should be. They are as close together as any commercial campground, so no privacy, noise from your neighbor's generator, etc. There were other pull through sites that would have worked. The website just didn't show they were available for larger rigs, but we saw a RV larger than ours on one of them, That would have been a much more pleasant spot with a little more privacy. $25/night for no hooks and no working dump station felt like it was priced too high. You also get charged extra if you are not a WA state resident and want to make a reservation. Unlike most Western WA state parks, there is little or no vegetation between any of the RV sites in this park. Only sites with any privacy are in the tent or very small class B RV area. You are in the flight path of SeaTac so you do get that noise. On the plus side, nice hiking trail in the park and easy walk to the beach area. Probably not a park we'll stay in again.

Nice state park with awesome hiking opportunities. We enjoyed a weekend here, the sites are well spaced. We had absolutely no Verizon or Sprint coverage here, AT&T was our only working phone. Getting to this park takes patience, Hwy 214 going into and out of the park is a windy, twisty road for a large rig so patience is needed.
