Best little RV park in the Okanagan. The drive to the park takes you into Kelowna up a single lane winding mountain road overlooking the city; the road is easily manageable for any size RV. This small park has only 8 full service sites but each site has a lot of individual space for you to hang out in. There is also plenty of room to maneuver any size trailer so that won't be a worry. We had 50 amp service, very good water pressure, and an awesome setting nestled in a very quiet part of Kelowna right beside a golf course. The site offered a gravel pad, solid picnic table, and a good amount of grass space to relax on. We needed a bit of leveling but not much. No cable service but do you really want cable in such a setting? We were able to pick up a couple of local HD channels over the air to keep up with the news. There was one washroom and a separate shower room - both were immaculately clean. Most people just used their own facilities. This is a working farm so we had fresh eggs for breakfast. It was too early in the season for vegetables or fresh chicken. The park is very close to Myra Canyon trails that offer outstanding views of the whole Canyon and beyond. It about an 8 km drive up a logging road to the Myra Canyon trestles but well worth it. The owner/operator is a true delight and is the epitome of what all RV park operators should strive to become. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

This was a stop-over 1 night stay. Check-in was quick. The owner was friendly and pleasant to deal with. The park was not busy at all. There were only about 6 trailers in all, 1 of which was probably a long term resident. Very easy highway access. Maneuvering within the park is very easy. The sites are gravel, very level, has same grass, and full hook-up. Your basic, clean campsite. It was very windy the time we stayed there. The men's washroom has a toilet and urinal and probably single person use room. The showers are in a separate room. There were 3 stalls each. Apparently, the women's toilet facilities has 3 toilets separated by only a curtain.... did not go in to verify. The owner told us it wouldn't freeze over night but it did resulting in a busted water regulator. Can't blame anyone other than myself for not taking proper precautions. No dog-run area. Would stay here again if in the area.

We had a beautiful site right along the Icicle River in this small park. It was a back-in spot with only 30 amps which was fine since we didn't need the air-con. There was only one 50 amp spot along the river but it was a pull-in spot. The sites along the river are alternating pull-in back-in so you will be facing your neighbours no matter which site you get. It was fine since there was plenty of room. These sites have loose gravel pads with small gravel patio. The rest of the area was grass. The owners help guide you into your site. There is plenty of room for any size RV. There are no garbage containers anywhere except by the front entrance. You have to haul your garbage there on your own. There was no dog run/area even though there was a sign indicating so - it was probably under construction. Firewood could be purchased at the office for $5/bundle. The wifi was not reliable.

Heard about this RV Park from a fellow traveler the day before we left the previous place and boy are we glad we did. It was about a 6 hour drive from Vegas but that was because of the awful traffic through Salt Lake City. This is a very nice smaller RV park with ample space to fit any size trailer. Our Premium Deluxe site had a large grassy area with a large concrete pad to park your trailer. We needed no leveling blocks. Because we were only 1 night we only hooked up water and power but if we had to hook the sewer we might have had to pull out the extension. The washrooms and showers are single occupancy rooms and very clean. There is no designated enclosed dog run area but they provide pick-up bags at all the grass areas. This is a very clean park with lots of space between sites. The owners did mess up our gate entry code so when we got back after dinner we couldn't get back in. Fortunately, there was a worker still there and he let us in. But all in all, we would definitely stay here again.

We had a deluxe pull through site (165) which had just enough space to fit our 35 ft fifth wheel and truck. This site had a nice level concrete pad to park your trailer and a smaller adjacent pad with a picnic table. The rest of the area was your regular red rock gravel. This is a huge park and although there is no trouble maneuvering your rig around we did feel a bit cramped as the sites could have been a bit bigger given the price you pay. They have a very nice pool, washrooms were clean, general store well stocked, and several small dog areas. The large dog park is located just outside the main gate. Their free wifi worked very well as did their cable. They are about a 10 minute drive to the main strip which you can find free parking just behind the Flamingo hotel. All the interior roads are nicely paved. All the staff is very friendly as are most of the people we met staying there. No noise problems even though you see jets flying overhead almost all the time. I would stay here again if in the Vegas area again.

One of the nicer trailer parks we've stayed at and definitely the best one in south Tucson. All the sites are nicely laid out with plenty of room to park the largest rig (saw many semis with plenty of room to spare). The deluxe sites with grass are definitely worth the extra bucks. There are plenty of fruit trees throughout the park. We had a grape fruit tree on our site. Had a sweet grape fruit almost everyday. Th pool area was very nice but can get crowded because this is a huge park with only 2 pools. The staff was extremely friendly. Garbage is picked up at your site all day until 4:00. They have a large off leash park for your 4-legged family members - one of the nicer ones we've seen. This park is not in the nicest part of town but we felt safe, the park is clean and everyone is friendly. The biggest negative about this place is the poor wifi. It is almost unusable. They do let you use their computer in the game room or you can plug in your own laptop. Overall, excellent park. Very highly recommended if you're in the Tucson area.

This is an exceptionally fine RV park, where the sites are very well laid out with more than generous areas for yourself. We prefer the back-in sites over the pull-throughs because they offer more area and privacy. There is a mixture of shaded and sunny sites; we got one of the sunnier sites, which is our preference. The washrooms are very clean. The showers are pay per use (but we didn't use them). The interior roads are nicely paved and can accommodate any size RV. The sites are mostly gravel with a fire-ring and usable picnic table. The road leading into the park off of US 12 is long (3.9 miles) and narrow but not really an issue. There is a sign posted just off the highway stating use this road at your own risk - don't worry about it. It is manageable. The result is worth it. The only knock on this park is the mosquitoes. If you don't have repellent or a fan or, better, both you will be eaten alive (at least during this part of the year - September).

Overall, a very nice RV park and better beach. The rating depends very much on the site you stay at. We stayed in site 31, which was somewhat overgrown with trees and shrubs that very much limited the amount of sunlight that gets through resulting in a constantly damp and muddy area. The overgrown trees offered great privacy but a made it difficult to position your rig in just right to get your slides out. It took a bit of maneuvering but we managed with one side sitting partially on the grass. There are other much more open sites and had we stayed in one of those then the rating would have been 10/10. The washrooms are older, dated, but relatively clean for a state park. The beach is the thing we will definitely come back for (at a different site). We had full power, water, and sewer. The sites closer to the water and beach do not have sewer.

The park is very well laid out, accommodating for the largest rigs. We stayed at one of the premium sites which backed into the Skagit River. There is no direct river access, as there is a border or trees and shrubs in between. These premium sites are only 30 amps. No sites have sewer but there is a dump station which even registered guests must pay $5 to use. There is ample grass space between sites for your party to spread out and enjoy. The roads are on the narrow side - we had to drive over grass to park our 5th wheel - but not a problem to be concerned about for getting around the park itself. The dump station is near the entrance but poorly laid out because there is no way to make a U-turn back to your site if there are any vehicles in the day-use parking area. The dump station was probably an afterthought. The lack of sewer and poor dump station layout was the reason for only a 9 out of 10 otherwise very nice park. Highly recommended.

Sites vary in size but the largest ones can easily accommodate the large rigs and boats. The sites are hard packed gravel, fairly level, with excellent quality picnic tables and fire rings. There are no RV facilities at the sites (power, water, sewer) but they do have a number of potable water taps throughout the park and 1 sani station that you can use for $5 (free Sani-station at the Canadian Tire in town about 10 minutes away). There are no shower facilities so for the tenters take note. The washrooms are typical park washrooms. It does get very dusty which gets into everything. The wind really picks up at night so bring those awnings in. All in all, a very good provincial park with spacious RV sites. Easy access to a sandy beach and large playing field. Would come back again if in the area.

Sites are spacious, fairly level, and lots of shade (maybe too much in some sites). We stayed at one of the pull-throughs. We had plenty of room for our fifth wheel and tow truck. The sites are hard packed dirt and gravel mix with plenty of grass. No Wi-Fi at the sites, no cable, and no TV reception. Only Wi-Fi available at the store for free. Very pet friendly. We stayed by a large open grass area where they said we can run the dogs unleashed because it wasn't too busy yet. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If you have kids, great play area for them. Highly recommended whether or not you have kids or dogs.

There are two campsites North and South. We stayed at the North park and glad we did. It has bigger sites with a lot more green space between them. We stayed in a large site with more than enough room for our large RV. All sites are gravel and somewhat level (bring some boards). There are only 2 showers for the whole park so we used our own. There was a boil water advisory when we there. Our site was close to the highway so there was some noise during the day but was very quiet at night. Would stay here again.

Camped here on the way down and on the way back to/from Palm Springs. The rate down was $40, the rate back was $50. At that price point, unless you take advantage of 'complimentary' golf, staying here may be questionable. The park itself is very nice, clean washrooms and showers, large private sites, and decent WiFi. They have a nice dog run at one end of the park but there is also ample green space just outside the park for Fido. Easy access to the highway, gas stations, and the small town of Chowchilla. This is definitely the better park in the area. Take advantage of their golf special if possible.

Clean, well maintained, big-rig friendly, and super friendly staff sums it all up. This place has everything you want for a short or long stay. The WiFi was sometimes slow but works well enough if you need to Google something. This park is located beside their casino (actually on the other side of the freeway) and they offer free shuttle service if you want to leave behind some cash. The park itself is quiet, the grounds are immaculate, and the sites offer enough green space between each other so you're not on top of one another. You definitely get good value for your money. We did eat at the casino one night but I would not rave about the food.

Nice level gravel sites with plenty of green space. This park is very big rig friendly. It has no official dog run but dog friendly as long as you clean up after them. The washrooms are older but clean when we visited them. Mind you there were very few campers when we were there. Easy access to the highway. The one issue with this park is the train tracks right beside the park. It seems like the trains like to whistle just as they go by the park even though the tracks are fenced off and no road crossings nearby. Try to pick a site closer to the highway (I-5) to avoid excessive train noise.
