There are two rates, $15 for almost every site and $20 for a few extra long sites at the end of section marked in red. Dump is an extra $10! If you need to dump, go South 7 miles to a Eel Lake park for free. Quaint little town with several seafood options. You're basically dry camping at a marina. There is a pier dedicated for crabbing. It appears you can crab at your site without any issues. There is a dump station (extra fee), water fill, boat ramp, showers, bathrooms and playground nearby.

Current reviews are accurate. We experienced significant construction. Cable was basic, not HD. Wi-Fi was average. There is very limited access to the river. Hot tub was available. The sites were paved and level. Good rate for an overnight. Utilities were good. This would be a nice economical spot to visit Eugene or Corvallis.

Upon arrival, I actually drove around the block because I wasn't sure I wanted to stay here. Even though I had anticipated a 50% discount with Passport America, the neighborhood and trailer park scene was almost unbearable. My wife told me the price was too good to just drive by and not stop. The host was very friendly and helpful. Eager to show me my site, I couldn't help to notice how narrow each site would be to my neighbor. I was an early arrival. By nights end, the nearest neighbor was right on top of my slide out. As I review, trains are rumbling and blowing their call. Tracks are close and horns are loud. Be aware of sirens. The good can be found in the WiFi. 30mbs are standard. Enough bandwidth to stream your movies or Skype your family. Overall, come here with our PA discount but don't expect the Oregon wilderness you may be used to. Appreciate being close to all the city has to offer and the good WiFi. You're going to be distraught by the tight turns and close neighbors. But we are not in the pristine forest! Expect city dwelling with a trailer park feel.

The rate is from the Passport America discount from Sunday to Thursday night. We were given a spacious and wooded site. Cable and utilities were very good. Pool, jacuzzi and weight room were in great condition. Restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. Wi-Fi throughout the park is NOT free but available for a fee. It's in a great location for visiting Mt. Hood and all the local flavors.

The best sites are along the river. 2nd row is pretty good, too. All sites are a little close to the next. Good rate makes up for it, plus you're in the city. Road noise is moderate. Easy to access off the main road. I was able to pull in over 100 TV channels. I think the other review had issues with his TV. It's a great spot to drop in your kayak or do some river fishing.

In addition to the previous review, this campground was spacious, great views, clean, etc. There is a nice clean canal running through the park with a boat ramp, too. The fishing was outstanding in the canal, just a few yards from our site. WiFi was excellent, laundry was great, and free movie rentals. It's an easy 10 minute drive to restaurants and fuel off of I-5. Bigger city south on I-5 for 20 minutes more.

Make sure you set your GPS for Game Farm Wilderness Park because Game Farm Park is where the soccer & softball fields are. If you see a tennis court then you're at the wrong place! Go across the river bridge and take a left. I rated the park based on what was expected. The host is there year round. Make sure to stop at the host before setting up for a multiple days. Reservations can be made online. Reserved sites are posted on the site markers. Clean, blacktopped and cared for by a good park maintenance crew. Close enough to shopping and dinning. Seattle Sounder station in Auburn can take you to Tacoma or Seattle for cheap! 7 day limit on stays. It may be possible to move to a different site after the 7 day limit is up. Check with the host or do it online. Good luck!

We used our Good Sam 10% discount. We liked the layout of the sites, terraced on the pull-throughs with back-ins around the perimeter. Wi-Fi was not as good as hoped from previous reviews. Other utilities were fine. Laundry was expensive at $2.50 for a wash and 2.50 for a dry. Nice common area for BBQ and brand new bathrooms & showers (pay per shower) I don't think there is a better location to visit Port Angeles, WA and the NP at Hurricane Ridge. There are lots of local culture here too besides the NP. It's only 5 quick miles to downtown. This park is clean, safe and scenic. We will return if in the area.

I am a Passport America member. If you are too, make sure you make your reservation online or call it in. They will not accept PA at the entrance for walk-ups. The rate does not reflect the PA discount for Sunday-Thursday nights. The drive in from Monroe has a steep grade about 1 mile from the park. I am guessing it is a 7+ grade for about 1/4 mile. The park is 5 miles East of Monroe on a narrow road (paved and lined). The park has a nice laundry facility, multiple swimming pools, game room, shuffleboard, and mini-golf. The mini-golf is getting worn but still is fun for the kids. Many sites are occupied by "1000 Trails" members. You get to pick your site as "first come-first served" but you can't take an unoccupied member site. There are sites near the river with W & E but no sewer HU's. There is a honey wagon service for $25. Full hook-ups are located in the main campground area. The sites are level but a bit tight. There seems to be a few long-term set ups scattered around. The resort fee of $3 per night that Encore charges makes me upset. It's an extra charge after they take your discount! Overall, it's a decent park with some issues with tenants and aging facilities. It took me 45 minutes to get to Seattle Center on a weekday noon trip. I'm not a fan of Thousand Trails campgrounds, but this one ranks as one of the better ones. It's still not a great campground, just alright.

Rate is discounted per the "end of the season" rate, 2 Adults and one dog. We got here on Sept. 8th. Call ahead for availability and current rates or discounts. Green grass, level sites, friendly staff. Conveniently located near downtown and Glacier NP. Previous reviews are still accurate. Very good WiFi and cable TV. There is a large RV dealership down the road for repairs and supplies, too.

Price is half of the full price per night with an Intra-Agency NP pass. Other discounts available. Rated a 10 based on accuracy of services. Very clean, very wide sites. Fire pits at every site and lake front views almost everywhere. Beach is clean and available in season for swimming. Fishing seems to be the big draw! Boat ramp right at the campground. No utilities, WiFi, cell coverage or TV reception. Bring your generator but only use between 7am-10pm.

I'm in agreement with the last reviews of the park for 2014. We were pleased to find many sites available the week after Labor Day. Many sites had water hookup with electric. No sewer, cable or Wi-Fi but Verizon gave a strong signal. There is a fishing lake adjacent to the park. Go to the back of the park where there is a sign and a trail leading to the top of the dam. There are other campground options in Shelby. But this is by far the best for space, price and cleanliness. Other campgrounds are either too close to the Interstate or the rail yards. This park is quiet and peaceful. We will stay here again.

Agree with the previous comments from 2014. Nice & friendly staff. Pool was clean and almost warm. Sites were FHU, large enough and shade. Great little walking trail. If fact I saw deer. WiFi worked pretty good. Laundry room had good machines at a fair price. Camp store was well stocked. Lots of options to eat, drink, and shop in town. Worth the price.

First... there are two campgrounds at BBSP. The East end is has exceptional views of the mountains and is lake front. The West campground is green grass, river view with mountains all around. Both are wonderful! Second... the reservable sites are the only sites with electric. The first-come-first-served sites have NO services. Water is available at the entrances and located around the camp. Dump stations are at the entrance of both campgrounds. We stayed on the East campground for two nights then moved to the West camp. Both have something different to experience. We will return!

We stayed one night as a stop over on the way to Cody. WiFi was good, laundry was very good, and the hosts were helpful and friendly. I've got nothing bad to report except it might be a little cramped if it fills up. Other than that, it's a nice spot to rest on the way to see the area attractions.
