I would have rated this facility much higher if it wasn't for the bad wireless phone reception (verizon) and internet reception (tengo). I don't know if there is interference from the Marine Air Station directly to the north or what but both were very spotty our entire monthly stay. We really like the rustic feel so close to the city and beaches and the staff is very friendly and attentive. I don't know if we would camp here again because of the poor phone and internet reception. We are full-timers and need those connections.

We stayed at this highly overpriced KOA park for one week. Everything looks run down. The hot tub is only turned on for the weekend and then not cleaned daily and had no jets operating well. The pool is cleaned and refilled for the weekend. It is unheated. The Wifi is terrible.

Nice RV park along the river. They have a deck set up at the river's edge. Wifi occasionally slow. Shower situation is weird. You have 5 minutes and if you're not done, you have to wait another 5 minutes before it resets.

We stayed a week at this nice RV park. The wifi was great, staff friendly, and grounds well-maintained. There is some road noise from the nearby highway to Coos Bay and the coast. Although we have a shower in our motorhome my grandson has to use the ones at the parks due to his height (6'7) and unfortunately the ones here have very low showerheads. It's a quick and inexpensive fix with those flexible hose shower heads that can be positioned up higher, so I would recommend that. That would have pushed my rating higher.

This is a nice campground with full facilities. Sites are located on a hill, but each site is level. We did not use the showers or laundry so cannot comment. We did have one problem due to the road layout. If you are towing on a dolly, you may need to take your car off in order to make the downhill turn to leave the park as it is very sharp. We realized this too late and ended up with a dent in the car, a broken light on the dolly and the car out of alignment on the dolly.

I agree with all the accolades the other reviewers have given this rv park with one exception - the Wi-Fi. They hand you coupons with codes for two hours of use every 10 hours but it doesn't matter. You can never get on. The park is so big that there are too many people on at the same time unless it's two o'clock in the morning. And it helps if you are in a site near the office so reception is good. You can go in the main building and use their conference center, but again if it is a prime time that won't help. We had our own hotspot as backup so that worked. Park is right next to a new zipline adventure park which kids love. The Mexican food at the park is great and reasonably priced. You can eat here even if you're not using the park.

This campground is halfway between Essex and East Glacier Park in an open meadow, although there are wooded sites available for smaller RVs. They advertise free Wi-Fi but what they mean is free limited Wi-Fi (checking email only) and you may have to access it by going to the open air pavilion (lots of bugs). Same goes for cell phone service. You need to put your phone directly on the booster in the pavilion. No sewer connection and if you need your tanks dumped you can notify them one day in advance of their Mon, Wed, and Fri schedule. Showers were clean but postage stamp size. Two washers and two dryers. We would not camp here again.

The only site available was one of the newer, unlandscaped ones up on a bluff and very hard to get to. But it overlooked the river and the staff was very helpful getting us into the site. The utilities were fine, including the Wi-Fi. We're self-sufficient so didn't try the laundry or showers. We would definitely stay here again.
