Date of Stay:

Passport America rate for five nights for a spacious site with water and 50 amp electric. The Passport America rate for this park does not include sewer connection. Sites are grass and on level ground. Though the park has many large trees, our site was in an open area that allowed satellite reception. We also had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. This is very nice park for exploring Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens. There is road noise during the day, but mostly quiet at night. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rate is Escapees 50% rate for 4 nights during the week. Site was back-in, grass, FHU, 50 amp, and level. We did have to back up an incline to the level site. Park WiFi was inconsistent, but we did use it. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception. Park was quiet at night; it was nice to sleep with the windows open.

Date of Stay:

This park is good for an overnight stay while touring the Grand Coulee Dam. The owner was quite friendly, but the park is just a gravel parking lot for RVs. There is an okay view of the lake and hill sides, but this view also includes the many power lines coming from the dam. The site was FHU, 50 amp; mostly level. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi and satellite reception.

Date of Stay:

No discounts are offered at Blackwell Island. They did give us a $10 coupon for for $50 purchase at Albertsons grocery. The park is nicely landscaped and tries to maximize its waterfront location on the Spokane River. The sites, however, are lacking considering the $50+ per night cost. Very few trees, very little grass and a lot of gravel - just blah. The sites are FHU, 50 amp with good WiFi. We also had good Verizon reception and satellite reception.

Date of Stay:

Rate is for non-resident and includes a $10 reservation fee and $5/day motor vehicle fee for our car in tow. Site was paved, 50 amp electric, and water. Good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception. There was a forest fire nearby and many of the day use facilities were closed, but the Gilmore campground loop was open. We stayed two nights and would return.

Date of Stay:

This was an overnight stay for us. The park was full for the night, but we had a reservation for the last site. Site was a level, back-in, full hookup site with 30 amp electric. Wi-Fi worked well, though they warn you that service may be limited based on the number of users. Trains do pass nearby and the noise can be disturbing. Nice park with many trees, flowers and landscaping.

Date of Stay:

Nightly rate includes park entrance fee. Site was 50 amp electric, but no water or sewer. Verizon cell/MiFi reception was inconsistent; sometimes fast, sometimes slow. No satellite reception, blocked either by trees or the surrounding mountains. Site was sloped, leveling jacks lifted the front tires 4" off the ground. We enjoyed our stay at this quiet campground.

Date of Stay:

Escapee 15% discount for four nights for a full hookup, 50 amp site. All services, including Wi-Fi, were satisfactory. The sites are on a sloping hillside and though they appear level, they are not. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception. The laundry was clean and the machines worked well, but there are only two washers and two dryers ($2.00 to wash/$2.00 to dry). Free ice cream at the office when you register; we chose huckleberry ice cream sandwich.

We enjoyed our visit to Medora, and Red Trail provided an adequate site for our 33' motorhome during our three night stay The site was a level, full hookup, 50 amp site. The sites are close to one another, but the park was quiet at night. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception; the park Wi-Fi was adequate. Red Trail allows guests to wash their RV and car.

Date of Stay:

This was an overnight stop for us on a Saturday. The park was full but quiet, considering the number of campers. Park was cleaned up from a number of downed trees from a recent storm. Most sites looked level. Water connection was available, but quite a distance from the motorhome; 30 amp electric only. Good Verizon cell/MiFi reception; good satellite reception. Many of the sites are companion sites (two RVs on one pull-through site). There is a $5 per day entry fee in addition to the site fee and on-line registration fee.

Date of Stay:

This is a small and quiet campground with spacious sites. The only service at the site is 30 amp, no water or sewer. Most of the sites are on a slope and challenging to level. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception, but the trees prevented satellite reception. The rate includes the on-line reservation fee; there is an additional $5 per day entry fee for your towed vehicle. We stayed two nights and were charged for three entry days. Therefore we paid $34.50 per night.

Date of Stay:

This is a newer park and we were the only nightly guest. We enjoyed our stay, but the nightly rate should be lower. The site was level, full hookups, with 50 amp. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception. There is no on-site manager. Registration and payment is made at Nelson's Creamery, one block from the campground. There are numerous train horns throughout the night. Keeping the windows closed and the A/C fans running helped to reduce the disturbing noise.

Date of Stay:

Devil's Lake accepts NPS Senior Pass for entry fee because the Ice Age National Scenic Trail is within the park. No water or sewer hookups, but 50 amp is available. We were in the Quartzite Loop and most sites are on a rolling hill and it is difficult to level. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception, but no satellite reception because of trees. Weekends are very busy at this park, but during the week there were a lot less day-use people. We enjoyed our stay and took advantage of hiking several of the trails.

Date of Stay:

We were in the South Bend area visiting family and stayed two nights (Friday and Saturday) because our preferred campground, Potato Creek State Park, did not have a vacancy. Spaulding Lake is an acceptable park. It is about 10 miles from the Indiana Toll Road. It is a quiet park with a mix of new and dated amenities. The electric, water, and sewer services worked well. There was good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. We had a clear view for satellite reception. Our site (102) was a very soft grass site; the site's previous tenant left a 10" deep rut from their tires.

Date of Stay:

Nightly rate does not include the $9 entry fee (one time fee) for out of state residents. Site 75 is spacious, gravel/grass mix and mostly level, but many sites have a slight grade. Good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. Good satellite television reception at our site. Trees may block reception at many sites. We stayed for four nights to visit family in South Bend and will stay again. The campground is popular on summer weekends and a reservation is probably needed.
