This is tough. Generally nice park but expensive. Newer section gravel spaces with concrete patio are nice for size, but street side back-ins are noisy with traffic some ten feet away. Water pressure was ok, but weak in morning & evenings when others home. WiFi same. Not sure what will happen when the new additional sites come into service. Staff were nice; full timers cordial; seemed to be activities for those who wanted to participate. Doubtful we will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

When checking in we were advised the fee had just gone up for all state parks. Nice setting, took a little work to get level, clean area and nice staff. Water access, dump station, power and water. no over air TV or WiFi, cell service was good but on CA time.

Date of Stay:

We checked in for 2 nites, but after talking to the managers we stayed 4. Sites and grounds very clean and level gravel with concrete patios and paved roads. Conscientious staff. Comfortable spacing, some shade. No cable or standard over air TV, but a good radio station. Water and pressure were good enough. We'll be back.

Rate reflects power only hook up. I got to Ely after a 12" snowfall. A full row of spaces had been plowed out as well as all access lanes. Manager went above and beyond making sure I had all that I needed for the cold weather, including propane. The wind added to the cold, but she was right there making sure all was right, and checked highway conditions before I left in the morning. I've had great service when RV'ing the past four years but none better than at this park.

We enjoyed this park the first time we stayed here and were just as satisfied this time. The site we had only needed a little front to back leveling; the shade, grass, tables and centered hookup 'island' are well thought out and organized. The large grass field invited the dogs to run and play and the pool had the same effect on their owners. This is a great place to relax.

Date of Stay:

We spent three nights here; roads are paved, sites are gravel, most using a block or two on lower side but pretty liveable without them, great water pressure. Well maintained, very clean public areas; excellent showers. Great hosts start the stay off right. Good washers and dryers; WiFi is weak at the lower end of the park. We'll be back.

This price reflects GS discount. We gave this property rating because of the new managers as much as the amenities. Great service, no grass, a few picnic tables, level gravel sites, some weeds, dated fixtures, some shade, good water, tv, and wi-fi. Clean restrooms and showers, clean laundry facilities; not a resort, but a comfortable, safe place to stay. Can't over state the conscientious, friendly, helpful service.

Rate reflects Internet discount. Great service from staff; shaded sites, relatively level at our gravel site. Clean bathroom and good shower - that could have used another couple hooks, but similar to most parks we've been in. Dog walk area looked a little snaky, but didn't see any day or night. We'll stop here first next time in the area.

Big park, nicely laid out, lots of grass. Long ways to the bath/shower area. Sites were level and well laid out for our trailer set up. The new dog run was a highlight for our dog. She hadn't been able to just run for over a week, so wanted to go there often. Ladies in the office were great. Can see why it was/is rated one of the best in the country.

We pulled in late in the day and found plenty of spaces available. This is a high, open valley so expect cool winds. The dog picked up goat's heads (stickers) along the exterior road. The kill deers were nesting all around the exterior so the dog had lots of interesting distractions. The driving range was in great shape, but the wind kept folks off it (other than dog walkers). We'll stay in this nicely maintained, comfortable park again, with a longer fresh water hose.

This park was a pleasure to stay at. The people were very friendly and the park was well maintained. We will definitely be back. We've been to many parks, but this is one of the best because we felt so at home.

Date of Stay:

We camped on the far end in B loop and would do it again. Weak to nonexistent Verizon cell service, which wasn't all bad. The restrooms and showers were cleaned daily. Friendly staff. Lots of Oregon history to review. Short walk to the Willamette River and a great river walk. If you want FHU reserve early or plan a week day stay.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here several times. Check in usually a snap w/ friendly folks. Some are learning the process, but no issues. The sites are wide enough for slide outs and canopy, but wind limits the canopy. Easy to hook up to sewer, water, and power. Sites level and paved. Antenna good for local TV. Casino bus comes often, but it's close enough to walk to a very good meal. We will stayed here again.

Date of Stay:

Stunning setting. Last time we stayed here the sewer had backed up and was running into our site. The night crew responded @ 8PM and the morning crew @ 8AM when the problem couldn't be fixed. No offer to refund our fee, but could change to site by busy road. We'll come back, but not near the lower end of the sewer system.
