One of our favorite campgrounds yet! Huge campground, yet stays pretty quiet. No road noise, no trains nearby. Hookups are electric and water, no sewer, but dump station is on your way out right by the entrance station; so is trash and recycle. Showers were clean but lukewarm. Beach access is 1/3 mile walk on paved foot/bike path from campground. Beach is large, clean, soft sand, just very windy. We fell in LOVE with nearby Newport. What a great small town! Antenna service picks up all major networks and AT&T signal is strong and reliable. We loved this park and you may see us camp hosting in the near future.

Beautiful campground, well laid out, with electric and water, no sewer. Dump station is 2 miles down the road by group camping, which doesn't make sense because no one was down there but the campground was full so the dump station should be in the campground. There are 10 waterfalls, all of which can be seen on a 8.7 mile hike called the Trail of Ten Falls. Three of the largest falls are a short hike from parking areas, you can even walk behind them. There is a nice day-use area and historical buildings in the park. There is no road noise and no trains nearby. Antenna service is minimal, we have an HD antenna and only picked up Fox. AT&T signal had 5 bars. I have no idea where this strong of a signal was coming from but it was reliable and consistent for hotspot and streaming use. Nearest towns are Silverton at 15 miles, Sublimity at about 15 miles, and Salem at 25 miles, which is a very nice, clean, charming Capitol city.

Nice looking, large campground conveniently located between Portland and Vancouver, WA. Sites are very narrow. We have slides on both sides and had to fit our 40' 5th wheel in just right to have space for both sides, which left very little personal outside space. The laundry room is disgusting with dog hair in almost every washer and dryer. There is no coin machine and the front office claimed they had no quarters. We ended up raiding the Pepsi machine, putting $1s in and hitting the cancel button so it would release 4 quarters. The playground is small and didn't keep my boys' attention for more than a minute. The fitness room and pool/ping pong rooms are closed to RV park guests, as there is a trailer park also on property. There are three "heated" pools that didn't feel heated to me and the rules are insane - no flotation devices, not even the ones built into baby's swimsuit, no pool toys whatsoever. I witnessed the pool attendant, who made it clear she is NOT a lifeguard, hand a ponytail holder to a lady and tell her to pull up her hair. The weekly rate I was quoted when I made my reservations (keep in mind they knew my dates, hence I was making reservations) was $20 more when I checked-in. They claimed they raised their rates earlier that month. Wi-Fi was down the entire week, and cable was worthless. We used our antenna and picked up the major networks that way. We will not stay here again nor refer anyone here.

Previous reviews are right, the trains sound like they're going to plow right into your RV. And they run all night long. The highway is noisy, too but we tuned it out after two days. Despite what phone reservation reps tell you, there is no RV dump station here. They have electric and water hookups but no dump station anywhere except the camp host site, which they will not let you use. The closest dump station is 6 miles one way in Hood River at the Water Treatment Plant on the north side of exit 64. The showers are hot. We had great AT&T coverage. TV antenna only picks up two PBS stations. No laundry facilities. The Columbia River is accessible from the campground.

Pretty State Park in the woods, quiet, not near train tracks or highway. The river is nearby. There is NO AT&T service unless you're right next to the entry gate shack. No wifi, and only antenna TV is three PBS stations. We left early to boondock in the surrounding forest where, oddly enough, my AT&T signal is strong and can pull the hotspot.

This is one of those places where we almost turned around and left. The grounds had dozens of geese and 100 bunnies (like, pet bunnies) running around. Cute, we thought! Until we saw the geese poop EVERYWHERE. I asked to borrow a rake so I could at least try to rake some of the poop away from our site so we weren't stepping in it and tracking it inside. I was given NO information upon check-in, just took my money and told me which site to go to. We had NO AT&T 4G, only E, service. Weird because less than a mile away, I had 4 bars of 4G. Just a dead spot I guess. I asked about wifi and was given the password, but the wifi is not reliable at all. It'll connect, partially open a page, then completely lose connection. No cable and no antenna TV. The log cabin on the property looks really nice but isn't maintained (doors don't lock, lights don't work), but only houses the restrooms, showers, and laundry room ($1 wash/$1 dry). The pool is above ground and looked disgusting when we were here, I guess because it wasn't peak season.

Nice campground right on Hwy 101 about 3 miles north of Klamath and 17 miles south of Crescent City. We got NO AT&T cell service here, but the campground does have decent WiFi and 12 channels of cable TV. There is a decent laundry room, no change machine, but you can get change in the gift shop, which has some nice local souvenirs. The owner has tons of information on things to do in the area. Rate is weekly.

Very densely wooded campground with narrow roads. Our 40' 5th wheel had no business being up in there but they have sites for big rigs. We got lucky and slid into site A4, right by the entrance and the road was barely wide enough to back into our site. There is absolutely NO AT&T cell service or TV antenna here. So, no TV, no cell, no internet, none.at.all. It was very muddy and soggy and judging by the greenery and new growth on hedges, it must be pretty wet all the time. You'd never know you were ½ mile from the ocean but you're very close to Sunset Bay Beach, Cape Arago, and the botanical gardens.

Very nice FamCamp with a nice laundry room, clean restrooms and showers, and thoughtful layout. There is a pet area and a non-pet area, so if you don't want to camp near anyone with a pet, you have that option as pets are not allowed in part of the FamCamp. We never saw anyone in the camp office. They are only open for a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon. They close for lunch in the middle of the day, which is when we arrived, so we self-registered, which was an easy process. No WiFi, no cable. Our AT&T hotspot worked fine and antenna picked up all major networks.

The RV Park is at the back end of the casino parking lot. It has full hookups. No wifi, no cable. Our AT&T hotspot worked fine and antenna picked up the major networks. As previous reviews stated, the lot is lit up like a baseball park. At midnight, our roof vents looked like sunlight was coming through. Redding is so beautiful, an outdoor paradise, with so much potential, but crime is rampant - drugs, theft, vandalism, violence, etc. We experienced it first-hand. Our son's bike was stolen, despite the lit up lot and security cameras everywhere. Casino security reviewed their tapes and confirmed the theft, caught the guy, and turned him over to police. Despite this, we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at Brandy Creek Campground during the off-season, so we were able to park our 40' 5th wheel sideways taking two sites, which we paid for. It was nice, shaded, near the marina, near the beach, and we completed the Waterfall Challenge while there. There are no hookups. There is a dump station with potable water. No wifi or cable. Our AT&T hotspot worked fine and antenna picked up the major networks. No facilities.

There in NOTHING is Tionesta, so fill up on fuel before you get there. The nearest gas is 30 miles away. Nearest diesel and propane is in Klamath Falls, 60 miles away. There are two RV Parks right next to each other. You have to drive through Hawk's Nest RV Park to get to Eagle's Nest RV Park. It is very quiet, not near any highways or train tracks. Wifi is excellent. No cable, but antenna picks up all major networks. Owners and their helper are very hands on and some of the nicest people you'll meet. When our son's bike was stolen at a campground in Redding, the owner pulled a bike out of her storage shed, fixed a flat tire, adjusted the seat, and brought it over for him to ride around while we were there. There is a little playground and a couple of very friendly goats. This is a great place to visit Lava Beds National Monument (14 miles away), or explore the volcanic mountains surrounding the area.

This is a beautiful small state park with a paved bike trail that connects to provide over 30 miles of riding through the beautiful Rogue Valley alongside the river. Previous reviews are correct in that I-5 is literally across the street. There are also train tracks on the other side of I-5, and even though we did hear the train occasionally, we never heard horns blow. Our HD antenna did not pick up any channels, which surprised me because we've been in way more remote areas and picked up channels. Our AT&T cell service worked fine and we were able to use our hotspot and stream Netflix. A/B loop has a small laundry room for $1.25 washer, .50 dryer. We did not use the bathrooms/showers as there were thousands of earwigs having a family reunion in there.

Pinto Lake is decent. The whole area is expensive and this one is about average. The campground is small, no road noise, no trains. The sites are the narrowest I've ever seen, our awning hangs 1/2 way into the next site and the camp host keeps telling us to put it away. The laundry room is one washer & dryer in the owner's private residence, $5 per load, and good luck getting someone to open the locked gate so you can go to/from the laundry room - we're holding off on laundry until our next campground. They lock the gate to the park at 7pm, which seems really early. We're almost always out until later than that, so we have a key, but it's a pain to deal with the gate. Overall, decent place to stay short-term. I'd probably look elsewhere if we ever came back to this area.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. There are only six sites with electric, water, picnic tables, and fire pits as well as a playground, volleyball court, horseshoes, and a gorgeous lake surrounded by weeping willow trees. There is tons of wildlife including geese, turkey, hawks, vultures, and raccoons. The dining facility allows everyone to eat there and serves really good food, especially the seafood buffet on Fridays at lunch. The only thing missing is a dump, but there is a dump station down the road. We will definitely stay here again.
