One of the best places we have ever stayed. All sites are leased and are put into a rental pool when the leaseholder is out of the park. We were given site 660, which is roughly 55'x70', just down the road from the clubhouse. It has a large heated pool, two spas kept at different temps and a really nice library. Other highlights include two dog parks and 70 acres of desert trails, two work shops, three laundries and showers, 4 pickleball courts, 400 scheduled activities a month and the nicest folks you could meet. Jojoba doesn't take reservations, so if there is no leased sites available when you arrive, you can use the boondock area, which is also the nicest we have seen, with it's own laundry and restrooms. The new craft center is located in the boondock area, too. Any guest has free use of all the facilities. All of this was built and is maintained by volunteers who live here. Very impressive.

A good place to spend a night, but that's it. We called ahead to be sure they could accommodate a 43' coach, and despite the sign at the entrance claiming a 36' limit we were able to fit into site #1 with the assistance of the very able manager. I think we could have also fit into site 2, but that's it. As it was, our slides hit the bushes between sites. Sites are all dirt, so I wouldn't go here in the rain, it would be a quagmire. The park is far enough off of I-15 to be quiet. There is no good place to walk dogs. Cable TV worked.

The rate is based on staying a week. UT has a hefty hotel/RV tax. If you need or want to be in downtown St. George, this is the park. Two thirds of it are park models for permanent residents crammed in pretty close together. The transient spaces are all gravel. There are some pull-throughs, but the majority are back-in. The facilities are immaculate. The pool (in Novemeber) was covered with a large inflated dome (the night time temps fell below freezing) that made swimming feasible. Nice laundry, good showers. No dog park. We walked our dogs in the field between the RV park and the main road, and in the large storage area. It worked for a week, but the place really needs a good pet area. We will stay here again.

Cost is based on weekly rate. One of the cleanest places we've stayed. All sites are level concrete pull throughs. Full hookups, good cable, good WIFI. Inexpensive laundry and good showers. Ok dog walking within the park. Nice looking pool and spa but too cold to use them in November. Highway and train noise is pretty intrusive when outside.

Really nice park with great views from most sites, especially sites 16-24. Site 21 or 22 would be my choice if available. Full hookups, nice showers and restrooms. But, most sites appear to have leveling issues. We had to move from #5 to #23 because we couldn't get level, and even then had problems. Good AT&T data, no OTA reception. The rest of the campgrounds in the park close Nov. 1, so it was really quiet and great dog walking when we were there.

Great small park. I'd give it a 10 if it had cable TV. The WiFi even works most of the time, until someone starts downloading video. We had a back-in site that must be over 60' long and 30' wide. We can park the car in front of, or beside the coach. The driveways are very wide, so access is outstanding. Very nice restroom/showers. The laundry is small and dated but works fine. Two large fields to walk the dogs, but no fenced off-leash area. Most of the sites are long term or permanent residents. A few of the sites were a little cluttered but none are junky. I met the owner, and he is on site every day keeping an eye on things. A train goes by a couple of times a day about 1/4 mile away. There was no noise at night. Call ahead. They don't have many open sites, even during the off season.

We stayed three nights in site 8, a premium pull-through. The sites are huge, even the back-ins. Our 43' coach, minivan, and dolly didn't come close to using the full length. The park is actually in Coburg, not Eugene proper. Access is great, right off Coburg road, about 1.5 miles from I-5. The park is about 4 miles from complete shopping and services in Eugene. The park is located on the McKenzie River. There is a large, separate day-use section with a boat ramp. There is a large dog park, but it was fairly muddy due to heavy rains. There are also walking trails along the river. Heated bathroom/shower suites were outstanding. The laundry is spacious and reasonably priced, with full sized commercial equipment. Excellent cable, no WiFi, strong AT&T data and voice service. Campfires are allowed and wood is available in the park.

I want to clear up the confusion about what is happening at one of the best state parks in Oregon, because ORPD isn't explaining it very well on their website. Loops A, D and E are reservable online or via phone. That does NOT mean you have to have a reservation. It DOES mean that you have to contact the rangers or the camp hosts before setting up on a particular site, especially on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights. If you just grab a site you will likely have to unhook and relocate when the folks with the prepaid reservation arrive at 10 pm to set up next to their friends. Loops B and C closed and under construction to install 50 amp power and new water connections. These loops will reopen roughly next spring. Loop F is first come, first served. If the site isn't occupied when you arrive, you can move in. If you don't have a reservation, go there first. That's where the new showers are, so Loop F may be the best loop anyway.

Price reflects weekly rate. We stayed 2 weeks. Small, clean, well maintained park. Excellent onsite manager. Easy in-out even for big rigs. Sites are a little tight but better than many places. Picnic tables. Good utilities including usable WIFI and cable TV. Cable required decoder box box installation, not a problem, just a hassle if staying just one or two nights. No dog park, but Kilchis Point Nature Reserve across 101 has excellent trails to walk to bay. Showers cost $.25 for three minutes, which I thought a little odd, but they are clean and really hot.

Oldest campground in Lake Cascade State Park, and really not suitable for large rigs. We worked hard to get 43' coach into site 8, but the view of the lake was worth it. Low water in the lake exposed lots of beach to walk on and there is a 5 mile trail starting just behind the park.

The RV sites are quite tight for large rigs. We could not make the turn into the "pull through" site without unhooking. It took some jockeying to get tree branch clearance for the slides. I was surprised that we were able to get level because the site certainly didn't look it. Over watering created muddy places on the roads. Sites are quite close together, luckily no one came in on our curb side. Many families with small kids, lots of hubbub. Several family groups, especially in the tent area. Good dog walking, but no fenced area. Great showers in the newer building. The hot springs complex is great. It is not included in the camping rate but isn't too expensive.

Typical small NFS campground. Great camp host. Very quiet except for the occasional train. Some pull though sites. Lots of space between sites. We would have been able to get into half of them at 43'. The trees could use trimming. Pit toilets. Good dog walking in the surrounding woods. Nice stream in the meadow next to the camp sites to play in or just enjoy. Drought made sites and roads quite dusty. Good water available, but no threads on spigots to attach a hose so fill up before arriving.

I guess we didn't see the same park. Frankly, we thought it was fairly dumpy and in need of significant maintenance. The weeds around our utility hookups were literally knee high. WiFi at the site was non-existent. There was no grass whatsoever, anywhere in any site, just around the pond. The road to our site was overgrown with weeds, making it tough to maneuver, especially a large coach. No shade of any kind. The same water that is so nice to lounge in is piped to the sites and is undrinkable due to the high sulfur content. We paid for two night and left after one. Yes, the hot pool was nice for an hour or two in the evening.

Date of Stay:

This is the first state park we have been to that had dirty showers and restrooms. The showers were especially bad. Beyond that, the place is great. Many of the sites have terrific lake views. No shade. Good AT&T service for phone and data.

Price reflects Senior Pass discount. This is a small NFS campground about 4 miles north of Sun Valley. No dump station, no water tank fill, have to go several miles into Hailey to fill up or dump. Lovely setting right on miles of hiking trails. 3 of 11 sites would fit 40+ foot RVs. Some sites are shaded. No firewood sold in campground, but all sites have fire rings. Excellent camp hosts. Same hosts for 16 years, so they really know the area.
