Ok, this is one strange place. We made a reservation 2 days ahead, we were told the husband would be in the office all day, but when we arrived after a long day's drive, the office was closed (early afternoon). We wandered around, and a Rottweiler ran out snarling and growling at the end of his leash. 2 humans followed, and we said we'd made a reservation, and they said they were asst. mgrs., and they'd check us in, but they hadn't been told anyone was arriving. So, we got a spot for overnite, which was fine. Several campers had spent several weeks here, and they were friendly and informative. Nobody ever showed up in the office. There is a nice mini-golf course here, and two picnic/horseshoes/dog walking grassy spots at each end. Near the mini-golf was the snarling Rottie again, which was really scary, since we have a gentle dog on a leash. It really bothered me, because leashes can't be guaranteed. The campground itself was ok, but the lack of keeping track of reservations, and the dangerous dog made me feel like I wouldn't want to camp here again. Nice views, fairly good spots, other amenities, but IMO dangerous, threatening dogs should not be allowed in campgrounds, even when they belong to helpful asst. managers. And reservations should always be followed--that too is dangerous if you drive to the limit of your abilities, and then don't have a place to camp.

Lovely campground with nice views of what is left of Lake Powell. Sites are level, paved, roomy, with nice picnic table and fire ring. Some shade, vegetation. You can walk from the campground into Utah and back into AZ, which is kinda fun. Lots of amenities at Lake Powell Resort, within walking distance. No showers at campground--you have to go to the check-in/store. I've stayed in another place in Page, and this is so much nicer and quieter (off season), and roomier. Here, you can relax and see roadrunners and other birds. Don't plan on having Internet here. Don't know about TV. Lots of sidewalks to walk on, places to see. The dam is interesting. Definitely on my place-to-stay list for next year's snow-bird trek to AZ from OR.

The best part of this place is the paved pads and the hookups. Totally flat, totally workable. there are sidewalks here to walk on. All this and no overhead lites at nite, so it is like real camping. Beautiful views of the lake. Wifi is not so wonderful, but can get lucky. It is a bit expensive. Senior pass helps. The restrooms were not that clean, but were okay. Best thing of all was the view. And the quiet. And the peace. I'd stay here again in a minute.

This is a place that is either on the way up or on the way down, who knows? The sites are mostly not level. The price is right. Depending on season, there is plenty of room. We had no complaints in late October. Mostly empty, everything worked. No problem. Good rate. We'd stay here again.

Really nice campground with lots of room to walk and explore. Only one problem is that the sites are side by side with hookups in the middle, so all the slides are next to each other and very close. Bad planning, for sure. Otherwise, it is a great place. WiFi soso.

Everything you might need, you will find here. When you arrive, you are escorted to your spot. Then, you can walk along the river, or explore the park, or enjoy the campground. Lots of room to explore. If you are hungry, you can order from the restaurant, and they will deliver food to your campsite. The pizza is not bad! If you come at Halloween, you will be treated to an amazing array of scary decorations. Lots of trees, sites are roomy. This is a fine place to camp! WiFi was spotty.

Second time we've stayed here. Mostly permanent residents. A few pull-throughs, some back to back. Residents and staff are friendly. Park is clean, as are restrooms. WiFi was okay. Room to walk along the railroad track, which borders the park, and there were no trains that came thru when we were there. We'd stay here again--easy to get to from 84 and 95.

This is a very basic RV park. Pay your fee into an envelope. No host on site. Restrooms across a field, which might have been open or not. Sites are gravel, hookups work, roomy lengthwise. Place was nearly empty when we were there, so no feeling of being crowded. Lots of room to walk the dog. Fine for an overnight stay. Seems like the price could have been lower, given the amenities, i.e., none.

This is a serviceable RV park next to a Fairgrounds just outside Prineville, OR. Neat and clean, well-maintained. Hookups are good, you can choose between 50 amp or 30 amp, just a few dollars difference. Office staff was very helpful and friendly. Great for dogs, as there are pick-up bags at two locations, and gates into the fairgrounds for walking or running dogs. Spacing was okay, with grass between, and a good picnic table at each spot. No complaints at all. Not beautiful, but a good value. Quiet. I plan to stay here again, as we travel back and forth.

We camped here last year just because it was on the way. It seemed like a big parking lot to me at that time, and my review reflected that. This year, after staying in places where you could pass plates back and forth from your windows to the rig next door, I have to appreciate how they've set this up. There is actually quite a lot of room between sites, thanks to how they've staggered the sites. Yes, it is mostly cement, but it serves the purpose, and it means there is quite a lot of space between sites. A few of the sites have grass, mostly cement and gravel. Many are pull-thru with some back-ins, but all have space. This could be a destination place for people who are wanting to explore the area, and there is a lot to see and do here. I take it back from last year's not so happy review--this is a really good RV park, esp. for folks who have big rigs. And for anyone who wants to spend a lot of time exploring the area.

This is a beautiful RV park on the Icicle River. Some of the sites have views of the river. All are back-in. Most of the sites do not have views of the river. There are many people here who are ready and able to make this a great camping experience for you. Your site is assigned before you arrive. When you arrive, men help you back into the site you've been assigned. If you ever have a question, there is someone there to help, day or nite, it seems. Everything here is pristine. It is like a bee colony where all the drones are taking care of things 24/7! Of course the town is interesting and full of things to do. The RV park has a trail to the Sleeping Lady Resort that is well worth taking, as it goes by the music/art center on the way. The only downside to this place is how close some of the sites are. We had a site where it felt like we could pass food back and forth from our windows. It doesn't help that they are all back-in since 5th wheels and trailers have slides on the same sides as Class A's do when Class A's pull in front ways, as they have to do here. Shades come in handy here. Lovely place, good people, clean, spic and span, attentive hosts. I'd come here again, hoping for more room.

This is a serviceable campground, pretty much DIY. You put money in an envelope and choose your own site. If you want WiFi (free), you call the park host and he comes down to the office and gives you WiFi passwords for as many devices as you'd like to use. WiFi works well. The sites are fairly level, have full hookups, and some have some shade. The picnic tables are good. The views are quite nice--you can see the river and the surrounding hills, and it is quite pretty. Nice rather small trees. Grass at all the sites. This is a place where overnighters come, and there are also temporary people, and up the hill are people who live there. No complaints at all. The overnight fee is fair. The showers/restroom is okay. The showers are not very private. Cleanliness is so-so. This is a place where the restrooms are open for showers at $3, and there are locks on the TP dispensers. You can figure it out. No complaints here. I'd stay here again for an overnight or even for a few days. Peaceful overall.

We stay here every year with a group. The park is very nice to our group, and donates items for our raffles, and tries to accommodate our needs. One problem is that one or two people in the office don't seem to know their jobs very well, so we end up trying to correct their mistakes, which they stand firmly by, usually, so that can be a bit of a hassle. Sites are adequate for our needs, clubhouse does the job just fine, and we always have a good time here.

This is a beautiful park, with great views of the river. Not as much shipping traffic as I'd hoped, because of a work slowdown by longshoremen while we were here--no fault of the park, of course. The sites are decently-sized with a picnic table and a strip of (dry) grass. Sites are gravel, and level. All around are flowers and there is a huge, green lawn along the river, and other lawns as well. Benches are arranged all along the river, and there are fire pits there also. Great place to fly a kite, as it is often quite windy on the Columbia. Nice beach, too, and quite a few people fish here. There is propane available, a little store, and a swimming pool. Carefully maintained. My only complaints were that the lawns are watered all day, every day, so you need to watch out if you've brought chairs to sit on the lawn, as the sprinklers come on without notice. One afternoon, we had to move 3 times, and were just lucky we didn't get soaked. The other thing was the night lighting, which is very bright. Black-out curtains would be helpful. Big rig access.

This is an ok place to camp. There is a hotel also. This is a good place for people who like to crab, as there are boilers, plus BBQs provided by the park. Most of the RV places are pretty close together, but they are level and have hookups. Nice view of the Hood Canal if nobody is camping right next to you. I'd come here again.
