The lady at the desk was very friendly. For a stop along I10 it's perfect. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed on Mondays (day we arrived) and they do not serve breakfast. There is no cable TV as indicated. The sites are somewhat level and fairly wide. Access to the park and back to the freeway is very easy. I would recommend it for an overnight stop when going east or west.

Date of Stay:

We arrived at the park after a very heavy storm dropped several inches of rain over the area. The owner assured us that the sites were usable and they were. Our main reason for visiting the area was to take a boat ride into the Okefenokee Swamp and the entrance to the Refuge was directly opposite to the park entrance. We found the owners to be both friendly and helpful and would recommend the park to anyone wishing to visit the area. The sites are pretty level and the restrooms and showers are clean and modern.

This place was so bad we drove out after we saw the sites we were assigned. We were told there were pullthrough sites available and didn't find out otherwise until after we paid and reached our sites. The site assigned our coach had loose dirt that would have turned into a quagmire if it rained (showers predicted). When we asked for a refund the very surly woman at the counter refused. We left and found a another campground just outside of town. This campground has a long way to go to reach an acceptable level. The buildings are shabby, the facilities unkempt, and everything needs maintenance. I do not recommend a stay here until the attitudes and the park are fixed.

Love to stop here and go to the Mexican restaurant in the shopping center next door. The sites on the creek are the nicest - shady in the afternoon and with nice benches to enjoy the view. Sites are spacious and easily accommodated our motorhome. The location is right off Interstate 5 and easy to get to. Great stop just before the Siskiyou Mountains.

The campground is easily accessed from Interstate 5 and is close to town. There are trees for shade and the campsites are very large. A levee next to the campground has a walking and bicycling trail that the locals seem to favor. We were very pleased with the quiet and the cleanliness.

While this is not the most beautiful RV park we have stayed at it certainly was clean and convenient. The office folks were accommodating and we would stay here again if coming back to Spokane. There are a number of "permanent" folks, but they were not a problem. There are a number of trees to shade the rigs.

Date of Stay:

Nicely laid out park - level sites not too close together and at varying heights. Staff is super friendly and very helpful. Continental breakfast in the morning at the office makes it easy to pack up and go when it's time to leave. Lots of activities in the surrounding area make it a great place to stay with kids. Recommend the park if you are headed north along Highway 5 and need to stop either for a night or for a couple of days.

If you golf the park has great rates and it would be a perfect spot to stay and play for several days. The pro shop is a quick walk from the park and be sure to visit the snack shop there - they have great food (breakfast and sandwiches). We had a site facing the golf course and would have been out golfing if the weather had been nicer. Had to take off because of the potential of snow in the passes in southern Oregon and northern California. Nice level sites made it easy to park and set up.

We stayed at the KOA and went to the Crab Festival. The park was full and we were lucky to get a site even for one night. The location is beautiful - wish we had more time to visit the surrounding area. If you have a chance to do so, visit Astoria and go the festival. You can catch a shuttle bus at the park that goes right to the festival site (for the huge sum of $2). Will come back and stay at the park in the future. It is very well appointed and is very family oriented.

We stayed one night at Turtle Rock and really enjoyed it. Our site was on the "bay" and because it was off-season we got a great rate. The managers are very friendly and super helpful. The showers are huge (two spigots in each) and very clean. We're very thankful that the handyman at the park had a good knowledge of RVs as our front slide failed to work when we got ready to leave in the morning. Our manuals said little to nothing about how to retract it and the dealer and manufacturer's help line were even less helpful. The handyman figured it out and in about an hour or so we were on the road. THANKS to all. We will certainly stay at Turtle Rock again as we travel up the Oregon Coast.

This was our second stay at the park and we enjoyed both times. The sites along the stream are very nice and the extra grass gives you a place to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Be sure to stop and eat at Si Casa Flores in the shopping center next to the park. The food is great and the portions large. We made a special point of driving further than we normally would just to stay here and will stay here again in the future as we travel up and down I-5.

We stayed here during the historic heat storm - the temperature reached 105. The previous review was correct - the Creek side sites are the best. By early evening the coach had cooled off because of the shade from the trees on the west side of the park. The pool was a VERY welcome relief as was the nearby restaurant that we decided to eat at rather than trying to cook. The managers were very friendly.

If you want a fully provisioned RV park, this is not your place. This is a campground, pure and simple. The availability of electric and water hookups make it usable for RVs and nearly all the sites had motor homes, trailers, camping trailers or 5th wheels while stayed there. It is well-maintained. There are no showers and the single restroom is not close to the campsites although several porta-potties are available at the other end of the camping area. The price is low and the location close to Auburn. The area is quiet and perfect for family camping. There are several large picnic shelters available for groups and families can combine RV and tent camping easily.

Date of Stay:

As of October 3, 2008, this campground is closed and up for sale.

We had planned to stay in Auburn but the Auburn RV Park is closed. This was easy to reach and fairly close to shopping. Staff was friendly. The only drawback was the railroad crossing less than a quarter mile away -- the trains had to blow their horns several times, but only early in the morning (we never heard them in the middle of the night).
