I've never given a 10 rating before, but I can' think of anything they could do better. This park is clearly designed and operated by full time RV'ers who really love it. The sites are very spacious and the terrain adds great views and additional privacy to most of them. The facilities are impeccably maintained. The grounds are immaculate. Volunteers are everywhere working on keeping everything up. We had a cable TV issue and 15 minutes after I mentioned it to the park manager three knowledgable, "experienced" guys showed up to fix it. Problem solved. The park only uses about half of their 140 acre site. The rest is reserved for trails and open space. We had no lack of exercise and the dogs loved it. Even the WIFI works. AT&T data and phone signals are strong. With cable we never tried OTA TV. Our site was very spacious, private and quiet. We could barely see the neighbors. The roads can be tight, but we had no problems in a 43' motorhome, especially with the escort service provided.

Dislaimer: I'm biased because we were camp hosts at Nehalem Bay State Park in October 2016. We have hosted there for three years and plan to return in 2017. The long awaited upgrade to 50A service on the ABC loops has been completed. DEF loops are still 30A. We have no trouble getting good AT&T cell phone and data service. We also had some OTA TV reception including two PBS channels. All sites are backin. Sites on the inside of loops are more suited to rigs under 30'. Sites on the outside of the loops are longer and angled for easier bigger rig access. Trees need trimming in many sites and on a few of the loop roads. The rangers have that on their winter work plan. We ran into the elk herd a couple of times walking the bay trail. Deer are everywhere. Raccons are a problem: do not leave trash outside. Dogs can be off leash on the beach and they love it. Showers are good everywhere and the new ones in F loop are especially nice.

We wanted to stay here but could not get into any site with our 43' motorhome. The sites are very tight and the roads are lined with trees. Overhead clearance has not been maintained, either. It was impossible to make the turn onto sites that are clearly marked 45+ feet. As far as I am concerned, this park is not big rig accessible, and I have the scratches on the coach to prove it.

Site 71 in the East Campground. Nice park, good power and water, no sewer. Many spacious, long back in sites. None are shaded. Several shaded pull throughs but most looked tight for big rigs. Adequate showers with button you had to push every 30 seconds for water, lack of safety hand rails a significant issue. OK dog walking. All sites are paved, with fire pits and tables. West Campground has shorter grass and gravel sites. Smaller rigs might find it prettier there, but big rigs would have tree problems; doable but not easy. The park is in the Portland airport flight path depending on wind direction.

Outstanding. Smaller park with 50A and water. Lots of space between sites, almost park-like. Traffic noise on US26 dies almost completely by 10pm but can be intrusive during the day. Great walking areas. Good showers, firewood is a bargain. One pull thru. Several sites are very long. First come/first served, so arrive early or plan on dry camping in the parking lot. The park was full by 4pm on Wednesday night in late September. Good ATT, two PBS OTA TV stations. Heavily treed, so folks were having sat issues in some sites.

Small county park nestled along river near downtown Twin Falls. 30A and water; no dump station in the campground. "Large" pull-thrus were barely long enough for the coach alone. Pull thru sites are narrow, but shorter backin sites are quite spacious. No tables. No showers. Lots of walking area, lots of grass for dogs. NOTE: Do not enter Rock Creek Park. Entrance to RV park is street adjacent to Westwind Homes. No signs for the park except the street sign itself says Rock Creek RV Park Road. If you miss it turn around in the hospital about 1/4 mile east on the left. Good ATT service.

Lovely place, very peaceful, lots of good walking areas. Very clean. Almost deserted in mid-week in mid-September. We dry camped in middle of three paved parking areas, the one below the dam. We paid the fee, but I'm not sure I should have. Do not try to get into Lake View Campground in anything longer than 30'! Much too tight and there are major tree problems throughout. I did not try the Elk Flat Campground because dirt road was too rough for our coach.

We stayed one night in a 43' motorhome pulling a dolly. The roads are paved but narrow, and not well marked, they really need new painted arrows and better signs. Our coach will not make a couple of the turns without backing up, so we had to disconnect to get into a pull-through. The park has only 4-5 spaces for big rigs despite what the web site claims. I think all of the sites are now 50 amp, but did not try to verify that. All the sites we looked at were 50 amp. All have water, none have sewer. The showers closest to the entrance office are much nicer than the others. We stayed one night on July 4th and the park was maybe 20% occupied. We would stay again as it is well placed between Denver and St. George.

One of the best laid out, cleanest parks we have ever stayed in. It is actually a reason to go back to Iowa. $30 is the best deal we've ever seen for a park of this quality. Huge sites, vast grassy areas to walk dogs, wide paved streets, etc. I'd give it a 10 if the WIFI was free (it is very strong) and if the utilities were positioned for motorhomes instead of 5th wheels. We stayed in site C5, a pull through easily long enough for our 43' coach plus dolly plus minivan, but the utilities were in the back corner, so by the time I was fully in the site I had to run ~30' of cable and 25' of sewer hose. The site slope was such that the sewer would not drain by itself, either. Next time, we'll unload the dolly and put it and the car in front of the coach and the services will play much better. There is no office. You have to call ahead for a reservation secured by a credit card. When you get there, you call the owner and she gives you very clear directions on how to reach your site. She charges the card and you leave whenever you are ready.

Very pretty smaller campground about 3 miles from Rt 7, about 8 miles from Bennington. Very quiet and clean, FHU include cable (just 13 channels) and very decent WIFI. Good ATT cell, too. Sites are arranged around small pond with a lighted fountain that is a nice swimming hole in warmer weather. All gravel roads and sites, level, table and fire ring. Shade varies by site. No laundry. Quiet dogs are more important than leashed dogs, a refreshing attitude. We'd come back anytime.

Very nice park. Site Beechwood PT4 was one of four sites in this section that was big enough for us (43'). Most of other sites too small. Started out with a reservation for site 103 in Pickerel Point campground but it was very tight, maybe not doable, and the host suggested we try to move. We were lucky to be able to get a pull thru site because they are popular and reserved long in advance. 50 amp electric only, water at the park office or at a few spigots in the campground that need long hoses. Great dump station. Paved roads, pull thrus are gravel, all others in Beechwood are paved. Pickerel Point is all gravel. Note that part of Beechwood is no-pets. Lovely lake, great hiking. Good ATT cell data and surprisingly good OTA TV.

Lovely small park. Some reservable sites, some first-come. Very heavily treed. Ranger on duty at the small store. Site 15 is a pull through, but had to back out because we couldn't make the turn. Could not get completely level. Several sites are angled backwards, requiring going the wrong way on a one-way road; carefully check the campground map before arriving if you have a reservation. A few sites will fit big rigs but most won't. Great hiking. Electric only. Get water at dump station at entrance before entering campground. Good showers. Good AT&T cell data, some OTA TV. Road from I-68 is really narrow without shoulders. Use care when towing a trailer or a dolly.

Date of Stay:

Small campground with no amenities except a dump station that is not accessible by big rigs. Note: NO water except a hand pump, so come with full tank. A shallow river runs directly behind sites. Supposed to be good fishing, kids love to play in it. Site 2 was all grass, no shade, huge, and level. It would be a problem for big rigs if the ground was wet. Sites 1-9 work for big rigs, site 9 has best shade but is across from the only pit toilet. No smell, just high traffic. Most sites might be a challenge to level. Absolutely beautiful area. Green, green and more green. Pretty intense driving, narrow roads, no shoulders, logging trucks. No AT&T or Verizon at all.

Funky mix of RV sites, tent sites and cabins. None of the spaces are numbered. The (owner, builder, camp host) escorts you to the campsite he picks for you. A little pricey @ $40. We (43') only fit in one campsite and it turned out to be pretty great: completely shaded, private and very spacious. Good WIFI and great cable, but only 30 amp. The sewer connection actually ran a little up hill, so dumping took a little work but turned out ok. Very good water, I refilled our tank. Great showers, no laundry. Needs more gravel everywhere, but he knows that. The owner is fascinating to talk to. We'd gladly return.

Absolutely gorgeous country. Heavily forested. Verdant green, rolling hills, picturesque farms and valleys wherever you look. Silent: no road noise, no trains. Colder than we realized in May: thunder, hail and rain showers. Typical older NPS campground. Only A loop has sites big enough for RVs, only two were close to our size, 43'. (B and C loops were closed and might not open this year according to the host). No hookups, no showers. Water is available and there is a dump station. The sites are narrow but not close together, narrow roads are paved. No AT&T or OTA TV, told Verizon works fine. Lots of ticks in the woods, so inspect dogs and people constantly.
