Stayed on night in W/E site across from the office. Gravel pull thru site that was fine for one night. Utilities in this area of the park are between the sites, so your rig faces one direction, your neighbor faces the opposite - "forced" friendship! The check-in staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Wifi was good. I would definitely request another site if we were staying for more than a night or 2. Having said that, we would stay here again.

Decided to bypass Spokane and stay here for one night on the way to BC and the Okanagan Valley. Sure wish we'd picked another park. It's in a lovely location on the lake, but the BNSF trains are frequent day and night. Price included wifi access ($3) but was for W/E only. Sewer was extra. Well, we didn't need sewer for one night cause we could dump in the morning. Uh, no...there is NO dump station and if you want to dump, it's an extra $6, essentially a W/E/S site. Sewer system for the few FHU sites in the park is connected to the owner's house system. Wifi was good. Owner turned it on after I paid our 3 bucks. Site was grassy and nice - close to the lake, but no numbers on sites in the area we were assigned. Owner complained about the high cost of "her" Internet, sewer system, getting mtce people to come out. I think that's why the price was high (and the fact that this park is the only show in town). We would not stay here again.

Ditto what others have said in 2016. Additionally, some pull thru sites have utilities in between the sites, so "your" outside area is shared with your neighbor's. Fortunately we did not have neighbors during our 2-day stay. Park appears old and a bit tired. Didn't really use the bathrooms/showers but what I saw, they could do with a bit of maintenance and updating. Park is heavily treed which is nice but layout of sites in some areas is a bit confusing as to what is a site and what is a road. Highway 1 (4-lane) is at the back of the park, CN rail line is in front. Trains really didn't keep us up, but they are noisy when they pass by. This is our second visit to Hope area. I don't think we would stay here again. There are other, nicer parks nearby.

We called a day ahead to ensure they had a site for us. When we arrived we were assigned a W/E site in the open "field" in the center of the park. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Certainly the price was right, but I had hoped we'd have had a full service site (for the same price). The sites in the "field" are a bit up and down, but it wasn't difficult to level our TT. Dump "station" is a small site on the perimeter road, not a proper dump station with water and an area to wash down any spills from dumping. It was okay but a larger rig might have trouble getting to the site.

Stayed one night on trip west. Showed up w/o a reservation but no problem. Assigned site was long enough for out van/20' TT without having to unhook. Wifi was marginal as tower was in center of park and we were at the front. Might have been annoying had we stayed longer than 1 night.

Large park with 350 sites. We stayed for 3 days and were put in an "open" row with no vegetation between the sites. For $48Cdn the first night and $35 the other two nights (rates changed Sep 9), we expected more - perhaps we've been spoiled at other parks. Sites on the upper part of the park have conifers between the sites, so maybe we were just unlucky (or not big enough - our TT is 20'). The "premium" sites on the lake were not something we would want. Sites are tight and with more than one vehicle at some sites, area looked like a used car parking lot. Overall park is quiet at night but during the day between barking, yappy dogs, pre-school kiddies, and large groups of people chatting incessantly, it is quite noisy. I know, a good time to go sightseeing. Wifi is now included in rate and has been quite good at all times of the day. Our site has a cable outlet but I didn't try it so I don't know whether park still offers cable or not. We didn't use the washrooms or the laundry so cannot comment on those. Park has posted 10 kmh speed limit but it is not enforced. Some people speed even tho there are speed bumps. An accident waiting to happen! We'd probably stay here again but be more selective in the site we were assigned.

Park is on the Big Thompson River about 4 miles out of metropolitan area so it was nice and quiet. Landscape of park is basically all gravel. I wouldn't call it a parking lot because sites are laid out through the trees, etc. Some FHU sites back onto the river. We booked online on their site and had to pay up front for both nights - not ideal. Most times when we have booked a park online, we've been charged for one(1) night as deposit. When I checked in, I was assigned a site in the trees. I said that I had specifically picked the on-line option for a river site. The check-in clerk said he had no control over who got put where. I said I had selected the river site option, so what's the deal!? After a little effort, I was given a site backing onto the river. The check-in person seemed to "turn-off" after I asked for a river site and he had to scramble to find me one. Not unfriendly, but not apologetic either. I would have appreciated a bit more customer service. Wifi was typical of most parks when it's busy. I don't think I would stay here again.

Other reviewers have already commented on this park and I agree with their comments. We stayed 2 days (second day was forecast to be rain and it was). Noise from I-84 was not a problem. Only negative: we were ready to do laundry, but it is in the basement of the main building at the rear. No place close by to park and I didn't fancy lugging out clean clothes in the rain, so didn't use the facility. All sites are pull thru, no back-in sites. Wifi was okay: lots of strength but not enough bandwidth at times. We would stay here again.

Park is on the left heading into Cascade, just a mile south of the centre of town. Didn't have a reservation, but no problem, a lot of seasonal people had already left. We were given site on Payette River. Site are a bit close together but with no neighbours this was not a problem. Didn't use washroom/showers but did use the laundry - a real bargain: $1 to wash/$0.50 for 40 minutes of drying. Sites were easy to navigate inside park - gravel roads. Wifi was great - not a lot of people in the park so watched Netflix movie uninterrupted. I imagine, in the heat of summer with a full park, this wouldn't be possible. Staff was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.

Ditto what other campers have stated. We stayed for a week to visit Halifax. Our site was "downhill" at the front - had to block the tongue jack with a couple of 2x6s so I could level trailer! Trees on either side of site gave some measure of privacy, but we have no slides. Might be a bit tight for those with slides on both sides of their rig. Wifi was okay most of the time - typical of most c/gs/. Pool was open but we didn't use it. We've stayed here before and would stay again if we are ever in the area.

Unlike ToniB's comments, this park is exactly what we try to avoid (but it had been a long day). There's nothing wrong with this park and its facilities - concrete pads, proper hookups, grass, etc., but NO trees, no vegetation of any sort, so on goes the A/C while the rig sits in the blazing sunshine. This park was fine for us for one night. But it is not our idea of camping, or even RVing - too sterile, sanitized. Probably really great if you have a motorhome and only venture outside to hookup. Sorry not my idea of a great place to stay for more than a night.

First time ever in a KOA and we were impressed. Owner checked us in. Very friendly and helpful. A very nice gentleman. Mixture of pull thru and back-in sites. Big rig friendly - saw one monster Dutch Star in the back portion of the park. Most everyone we've met on our trip, especially westerners, tell us Kansas should be avoided. We drove across I-84 from the east so we couldn't. This is a nice park for a rest. We would definitely stay here again.

Campground is on the banks of the St. John River. Free 5-minute ferry ride takes you across the river to the campground. Ferry handles all sizes of rigs and runs 24/7. Campground is large and is situated on a hillside. Getting up the gravel roads could be a problem for larger motorhomes - in our area not a problem. Many sites are heavily treed and some are very open. Some sites are close together, but we didn't have neighbours for the 3 days we were there so not a problem. We would stay here again.

Park is behind eclectic antique store. Office is in store. Sites closer to the office (and Hwy 1) are full service. We opted for PW site closer to the water. No road noise. We booked in for 2 nights so we could visit Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. Both were very busy but we're glad we made the trip. Owner gave us short cut instructions to Bar Harbor which bypassed Ellsworth. We would stay here again.

Large park with very nice sites with bushes and trees around. Staff was pleasant and efficient. We would stay here again. Highly recommend this park.
