This is a City of Auburn owned park with only 18 sites having 30 amp power and water only. Sewer Dump available near park exit. Park is about 3 miles off the freeway, so its very quiet overall. It is in the Residential part of the City. Spaces are VERY wide with fire rings and a full time on site manager that will do anything to make your stay enjoyable! Excellent location for seeing Seattle and the surrounding area. Other parks are very expensive IF you can get in at all. Many walking trails nearby for walking along the river or biking. Most sites are shaded some in the sun, but all are shaded during the day at some point, as trees are close by around the park, and very TALL! We would stay here again!

Older park in need of updating, however, it worked well for us. Far enough off I-5 so you don't hear freeway roar. We had power and water, but had to use a sewer dump on the way out. MANY long term residents, probably 50 - 75%, but everyone was friendly, including the staff. Pretty good for a few nights or overnighting while travelling I-5. Camping World 1/2 mile away. Marathon Coach manufacturing 1/2 mile away. Truck stop across the street with a pretty good restaurant. We would stay here again.

Spent 2 weeks here in Florence. Park is very nice, wide concrete roads and pads. Rhododendrons and pines between sites. Large rigs, no problem at all. Excellent cable TV. Wi Fi worked well. Small rec room but nice, has free coffee in the morning. Just 1 block off 101, but noise not a problem, very little at all at nightime. Staff is wonderful. Maintenance man is always busy cleaning, raking, working to keep the park in ship shape. He will wash your gigantic rig for $$$. (Reasonable...) park is VERY DARK at night, no area lighting at all. Nice fenced in dog run with poo bags supplied. Great location just North of Florence. Fred Meyer 1/2 mile north. Bi Mart 1 block away. Subway 1/2 block away. If you like to bike or take walks, not the best for that, but there are several parks etc. close by.

No sense in reiterating what others have said. We agree with all of the wonderful 2015 ratings given. This is a very nice park with sincere caring owners and maintenance workers. We stayed 3 weeks and would certainly return.

Date of Stay:

OK, the good: Very friendly staff, nice small store, nice indoor pool, nice outdoor breakfast/dinner cafe and a very nice playground and fenced in dog run area. The bad: First, our site was hopelessly out of level as many, many other sites were. I used every available blocking mechanism I had with me to get our fifth wheel level. Most parks built on a sloping site have sites stair stepped so they're level. Not here. Second: No cable TV. For a campground this size? Really? Third: Upon check in, you are given, and told to wear fluorescent orange wristbands while you stay here, so the staff can easily identify campers. Fourth: Noise! If you want a park that is reasonably quiet, this is not it! We were in the rear of the park, but the park is located adjacent to Interstate 40, (Old Highway Route 66) which has a monumental amount of loud traffic and roaring big rigs 24/7. If you can handle that OK, the East/West main railroad corridor is just across the freeway. Huge trains pass by about every 15 -30 minutes, again...24/7. The campground is located just east of Williams, so ALL westbound trains blow their horns next to the campground before they enter Williams. There are NO other facilities within walking distance. This campground is just east of Williams with its own Exit (167) off the freeway. There are several good campgrounds in Williams, as well as along the 54 mile access road to the Grand Canyon I am sure that are quieter, have level sites, and don't require identifying wrist bands. We will never return here primarily due to the incessant nonstop noise.

Veterans take note! If you're going to the Wisconsin Dells, or just staying a night or two, this park is very nice. Staff is very nice and you are escorted to your site. This park gives a $10.00 per night veterans discount to ALL Veterans, not only those retired or disabled. They only ask you for proof that you served in the Military, and my DD Form 214 was perfectly acceptable, so we had a 50 amp electric only site for $16 per night. Great bargain. Additionally, the roads are paved, and graveled sites are spacious, and... Ready for this?... Are actually built correctly and angled so in and out is very easy! (New concept...) The park is very open with very few trees. You also receive an access card to use all of the hotel facilities. No cable, but we picked up 42 stations with our digital antenna. They have a beautiful indoor heated spa that has a capacity of 58 people. It's huge and wonderful! All of the casino facilities are very nice as well. Great buffet. All in all, a very nice facility and well worth the price, especially for veterans! We would definitely return.

This is an old park that the current owners have had for 11 years or so. Several improvements have been made, but theres a long way to go. When you check in the "office" you feel like you're actually standing at the entry of the managers house, no office to speak of. Managers are very cordial. Sites are gravel and fairly large, but they allow tents on the RV sites, so we got to look at a nice cabin tent from our rear picture window on the site behind us. Restrooms are fairly new, but the showers are in a separate building, old and in need of replacement. Lots of equipment and "stuff" lying around. This is right on route 12, so a little noisy. Excellent location while visiting the 1000 islands, 2 miles from the bridge to Canada, and next door to a great State Park. (That's ALWAYS full) no cable TV but we were able to pick up several stations with the digital antenna. Last but not least, there is a small store directly in front of the RV park that has excellent gourmet ice cream cones! There was a continuous line every evening waiting! We would stay here again but would hope the owners would clean the place up a bit and get rid of all the old stuff lying around.

Ok, first the good. This is an older, well kept mobile home park that has several spots set aside for RV's. Owners and staff are exceptionally friendly, helpful people. We had a 50 amp full hook up for 5 nights. No cable, but point your digital antenna toward Chicago and we were able to pick up a whopping 46 stations! Sites are heavily shaded and wide. There aren't any clubhouses, pools or the like, so if you need a nice spot to locate to visit and tour Chicago, this is the place. The park is only 3 miles from the South Shore commuter train Portage/Ogden Dunes station, and the Senior fare to downtown Chicago is $3.50. Now the bad. The park is located right on Route 20, a little noisy, and on the rear boundary of the park are train tracks that have Many freight trains coming and going 24/7. Noise level is pretty high, but if you can deal with this, its a great place for Chicago access.

This is a nice quiet well run park. It's about 6 miles south of Rock of Ages granite factory. Nice tour. Be sure to take exit 6 off Route 89, and not Exit 5. Its a little bit longer to double back, but the road from Exit 5 is a 2 lane, narrow road with very steep grades over 10%. The park is on a nice quiet lake well away from traffic and noise. We had a 30 amp full hookup with water and sewer, but no cable, and we were unable to pick up any stations using the digital antenna. New owners are wonderful people working very hard to create a great camping experience for you. The campground is on one side of the lake, and forested on the other. I can't begin to imagine how beautiful this view would be when the leaves change in the fall! This park is arranged so that it would be a great place to have a large group gathering, but best to call and plan ahead for this. Overall, a very nice park. We would surely return again!

This is a very large, well run heavily wooded park with many amenities. There are limited 50 amp sites so reserve if you need one. Everything you need is here. Staff is great, park is very secure, and the entrance to Acadia is only a couple miles down the road. If you like to walk, all roads are nicely paved and it's about a 1 mile walk around the perimeter inside the park. Water view sites available, but bring your binoculars, it's far. Like to swim? Beautiful large pool heated to about 80. Laundry has 8 washers and 8 dryers, and is $1 wash and $1 dry, very reasonable. Need propane? It's here and reasonable. No cable, but we picked up many stations with the digital antenna. Only one negative comment. All sites have been graded and graveled, but not leveled, so you need to level your rig. No big deal. All in all, a great place to stay. We would surely return here!

First of all, this seems to be a destination type resort, not geared for over night stops. We were only here for one night. There are MANY park models and seasonals here. (All nice folks by the way) The sites are all grass with a little gravel thrown around and no cable. We've traveled over 8000 miles this year, stayed in many campgrounds, and this park has earned two distinctions. 1. This is the worst park we have stayed at, and ... 2. It's the most expensive park we've stayed at. I could add a number 3 saying the lot was all but inaccessible due to very rigid limbed trees hanging over the access, and also hopelessly out of level, then this park will have earned the Trifecta of worst campgrounds in America. I stopped on the way out to voice my concerns and was told by the lady manager to "take a number, and if I was displeased, to fill out the survey form and mail it in." We have stayed in much nicer places for half the cost. This is not even close to being worth the money. Working staff... Great folks. Management.. Arrogant and rude. We will never stay here again.

Nice woodsy park. Fairly quiet. Most sites are back-in with a little gravel and a lot of grass. Park is on the waterfront, so you can take nice walks on the rocky beach. Roads are all dirt/gravel. No sewer at any of the sites but there is a sewage dump as you exit the park. No cable TV at any of the sites and we weren't able to pick up even one station with the digital TV antenna. Store is pretty well equipped for RV supplies. Nice laundromat on site. Staff is pleasant and helpful. They have several "classifications" of sites. We were far up inside the park for $55 per night. Waterfront sites were $84/night. Overall nice park, but far too expensive for what it is.

This is an old campground that's certainly seen better days. if you want quiet, it certainly is that. We were assigned site 14, so when you leave the office, you must pull your RV up a VERY steep hill (at least a 15% grade) to get to your site. Our site was a back in, and was pretty out of level and also dropped a great deal in the rear, so the front of the RV was nearly on the ground.. No cable connection, and satellite would be impossible with all the trees, so we tried the digital antenna. Picked up a total of 5 stations, no major stations, and of course, 3 shopping stations, clear as a bell! There are many permanent RVs and mobile homes set up, most of which are nicely groomed. It appeared that we were the only overnighters around, which surprised us at this time of year. The location is about 10 miles south of Plymouth, where there is a great Pilgrim Museum and Plymouth Rock, and a nice shopping and restaurant area. Just an OK park for a few nights.

Date of Stay:

Being the closest park to Boston, it's just an OK park, nothing fancy at all. We were only able to get a 30 amp spot for 2 of our 3 days there. Had to move on the third night. Bear in mind that this is an old military facility that has been abandoned and now turned into a public boat launch, and a 50+ vehicle day use parking area. An RV parking facility with RV spots lined around the perimeter of the parking area, as well as having turned an additional empty field into RV parking. Your water supply is an above ground 1 1/4" ABS plastic line strapped to the 8 inch timbers around the perimeter or tied to a cyclone fence. The "store" has basically nothing of any use unless you need a soda or charcoal briquets. Check in Staff was there and emotionless. There are no sewer connections at any of the sites, nor is there any sewage dump on site. They send you offsite about a mile away to the Salem Sewage Treatment Facility to dump. We went there only to find that you have to drive up to the fence, pick up the phone, and call someone to let you in. The entry is a single lane entry angled at a 45 degree angle opposite the way you come from the campground. So if you have a large unit, you have to drive into Salem, turn around, then enter the facility. When you leave, you have to do the opposite, drive through Salem, turn around, then back to the park. Huge hassle. Overall, if we had a choice, we would stay elsewhere.
