The only reason I did not give this park a 10 is that the sites are small and close together which could cause a lack of privacy when the park is full. We had no problems in the early spring. The view of the mountains from our site was spectacular. The park is very convenient, across from a Safeway grocery and within walking/ biking distance of downtown. The bath house is clean, warm, well-lite, with plenty of HOT water. The women's showers have both a regular and rain shower water nozzle. Wonderful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I didn't think it possible, but this park actually got worse than it was last year. For some reason, this park has always been the last stop on the Fall Colors Rally. The bathrooms are in a permanent state of "remodel" and are the biggest mess I've ever seen, the men in particular, I have no clue what the women's restroom looks like. To top it off, their sewer system started backing up out of a broke off vent pipe that no one had bothered to fix. There was a literal trail of sewage deposit running down the parking lot. Throw in the highway noise and rather high prices for the conditions of the park and I would never stay here by choice if it wasn't the last stop for the rally. Leavenworth seriously needs a better RV Park, the KOA and Alpine View are both poor quality parks. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We decided to stay at this park for a one-night stopover on a trip to Lake Chelan. I read some of the reviews complaining about the noise, but it seemed fine to me. Then again, we got one of the spaces at the opposite end of the park from the highway. The grounds were clean and tidy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The park was just a short walk to town and very convenient to the highway. The only negative I can think of was that it was a little dusty, especially when somebody would drive through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very noisy park. Showers are ok but someone kept turning off the light while I was showering. A lot of people walking through the park. Man with loud truck coming in and out of the park with a diesel truck. I think he was an employee. Last time we heard him going through was 2:00 AM. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park's website imagery leads one to believe that this park is set in a tranquil wood where small woodland creatures roam and all is clean and quiet and peaceful. Not quite the reality, as while the park is in a wooded glen, said wooded glen is backed right up to Highway 2, directly across from the Safeway. Highway noise is high and heavy throughout most of the day, it doesn't usually quiet down till later in the evening, say around 10pm. Park does have Wi-Fi, however, the coverage of the park is poor. If you do not have a larger external Wi-Fi antenna, you will not be able to access the Wi-Fi system in this park. Park roads are dirt, with some gravel mixed in. Sewer hookups are spaced oddly and are not easily located. Bathrooms were filthy and in decrepit condition. While cable TV is not available, you can get about 3-4 stations on Broadcast TV if you have a good signal booster on your antenna. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Wow! What a great stay in Leavenworth! This campground is a little rustic but we walked to the Bavarian Village daily and did not mind the location which is close to busy highway. The Wi-Fi was strong. One night their (old) fuse blew but we called and they came right out and fixed it. This was self check-in but no problems if you need to use credit cards. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Last review was pretty accurate except it was check yourself in. Someone comes in the afternoons and there is a caretaker, but is not here all the time. We did not see the reservation assignment list and went ahead and picked a spot and then had to move. Very noisy HWY during the day but is ok at night. You can get some TV on antenna, cell (Verizon) worked. WiFi was slow when everyone was trying to get on. We have XM radio and it was good in our location that we had to move to! The park is good location for the sites to see as you can walk or even bike to Leavenworth. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Love this park! I'd give it a 10 but highway noise is bad. In Leavenworth, Bavarian town, lots of cool shopping and things to see, base of mountain, Oktoberfest and Winterfest are great. Friendly, lovely caretakers, great people. Good base to see Wenatchee and Cashmere (Aplets and Cotlets made there, go for the factory tour). Apple country, lots of farms with fruit, and cider. Will always stay here while in area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, helpful and friendly staff. It was very full for the Octoberfest time but the day after that was done (October 21) the place cleared out and we had it all to ourselves. If you stay 6 nights the 7th night is free - at least in October. We did get some snow while we were there but it ended and every other day was bright blue skies. The sites are level and power and water were fine. The rec room was marginal and Wi-Fi only good in some areas. But it was nice and quiet - even though there is a major highway near by. It is close to Leavenworth and not that far from Wenatchee. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Have camped here 2-3 times a year for the past 10 years. Never seen a tick. June 09 (camper) must have brought them with him. Hope he took them all away with him. This campground is awesome. Very family friendly. Clean restrooms, pool and club house. Easy commute to Leavenworth and Cashmere. The whole family continues to enjoy our time there and will hopefully for many years to come. We camped here in a Tent.

This park is not very well suited to motorhomes over 30'. The spaces are all on top of each other. There is kind of a center patch of grass which everyone was backed up to, a group camp kind of feel: very crowded. The sites along the river are all booked way in advance! The river is very nice. You can grab a chair and just put your feet in and sit. The swimming pool closes early due to all the kids and not enough chemicals. The electrical hookups were old and our plug wiggled around in the connection. Our air conditioners would not turn on: in 100 degree heat! Luckily there was another hookup right beside the one that did not work, and that one worked fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has good river front sites, some with grass and some with dirt. Nice game room, clean pool, and large grass area for games. The big draw back was the ticks. Three dogs got them. I feel this is a major problem not only for the dogs but for the people staying in tents. Not sure if we would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall this is a fairly average RV park. The perks are the staff is nice, the river front slots are fairly long and there is a nice play area for kids, including a pool, game room and playground. The price includes cable TV. I also appreciated the owners keeping the full-timers grouped together so there were some decent sites for weekenders. Unfortunately, there are many drawbacks. Many of the sites are not level (some requiring significant leveling), too narrow and/or angled the wrong way for the direction of travel on the roads. The roads are worn out and create a lot of dust. There is also a fair amount of road noise from the hwy. Finally, the bathrooms in the office/game room were not maintained. We'll be happy to stay here again if no other options are available, otherwise we'll explore other locations in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is also listed under Leavenworth, WA, but it's actually about 5 mi east and 7 miles south of there, so I've included the more proper town also (but it's also 7 miles south of Peshastin.) Check the other location for more ratings. There are many styles of sites - in the trees, back up against the river, open for my satellites to work, short ones and long ones, all but one are back-ins. The roads are okay but not paved nor very wide. The sites are mostly level - all have a picnic table and fire pit. Many have nice grass. The manager was very nice & helpful, which helped the rating. We arrived on a sunny day, which made everything nice after being in Seattle in the rain for a week. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has an ideal location, nearby to delightful Leavenworth and Wenatchee. It has wonderful views, many large grassy recreation areas,excellent cable tv, and other highly attractive features. But, it does not have wi-fi nor does it have a modem connection. The roads are atrocious, and the gravel sites need tons of gravel to make them useful. This park, with some investment, could be a top 10 park for Washington. As it is, the terrible the lack of wi-fi or modem connections, the poor gravelling of sites, and other factors that could be fixed, bring a 10 rating down to a 6. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have stayed here dozens of times over 20 years. Our favorite anywhere. New management took over about 5 years ago & tremendous improvement. Sunny or shady sites, whichever you prefer. Seasonal types keep to themselves & never cause any problems for campers. Quiet time & dog rules enforced. Great for group (15-30) I take there year after year. Not posh, but a great place for a fun weekend or longer. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed at Blu-Shastin RV Park for 2 nights in the fall of 2002. This park is located on the Blewett Pass Highway-HWY 97 about 12 miles from Leavenworth. The site we had was along the river and was spacious. Staff was friendly and helpful. We are planning to stay 3 nights again this fall. There were seasonal sites that at first made me concerned, but don't let them put you off. The overnight camping spots
are very nice. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Sites on the river have shade, the only other shade is in the seasonal (permanent) area. When you first enter the park, you see the seasonal sites in front of you. Seasonal sites had some trailers that looked permanent, and the trailers were old and unkept. The overnighter area looked fine. Sites were unlevel on the riverfront (didn't check the interior). Could use another layer of gravel on the roads and sites. Management let you pick your own site if they aren't booked up. Sites were all fairly decent sized. Picnic tables and fire rings at all the sites. This place is about 10 miles from Leavenworth. If you want to go there, you are better off at Icicle River or the KOA. A little fix-up would definitely improve the place. We camped here in a camper.
This is a beautiful park nestled in the trees along the river. The park is about 3 miles from Leavenworth but is easily accessible by even larger MHs. Sites are well kept but only a few are along the river. Staff is friendly and helpful, cable TV is OK. Wi-Fi was weak and Verizon was usable but not strong. The park has mostly level sites and is beautifully kept. We would stay here again and is by FAR the best RV park in the area. Sites are spaced well and a staff member helped us navigate into our site. A gem nestled in the trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. But CALL AHEAD. It is often full due to high tourism in the town of Leavenworth. Its quiet setting among the pines and with river access makes it a destination park, also. We are a 38 ft. 5th wheel and would not fit in most sites. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Everything was very nice. It is somewhat expensive, but worth it to not have to stay at "the worst campground we have ever stayed at" here in Leavenworth. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent RV Park, beautiful landscape with flowers and a lot of trees for shade. We could only stay for 2 nights because they were booked, so make reservation early. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, a staff member even helped us into our site. Most of the sites have cement slab and most of them have grass with trees. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked great and the laundry room was clean, only $1.25 to wash and $1 to dry. We had a great time visiting Leavenworth, would like to return and stay longer. We would recommend this beautiful RV park to everyone. The sound of the rushing river was relaxing, enjoy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Site 24 $40 for one night [because we called this am and the site we’d reserved two days ago was not available today], then site 33 for the other three nights, +10 This is the best park so far: on the Icicle River, heavily treed, well-kept, level, quiet: the only sound is the river ++ We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pleasant scenic place to relax. Cement or dirt sites, decent Wi-Fi. Great hiking trail through some other resorts. Just a great place to camp for a night or week. Plenty of sight seeing in town and many activities available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice quiet place a few miles out of town, excepting the noise of a rushing river. Helpful staff, guides to site and reasonably well maintained (a busy place in summer). Get one of the sites with a concrete pad as the other sections are so-so in quality. Sites were close but not too close. Marginal cell reception. A lot less expensive than the KOA and we will stay there again when in Leavenworth. Have a reservation. Final note, parking for RVs in Leavenworth is iffy. The town's signed RV parking is a dust bowl. We found a quiet non-residential street. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is beautiful, with lots of river sounds. The only draw back would be the 3 miles from the cute town of Leavenworth. The bathrooms are old but clean, they could use an update. We will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here over the July 4th holiday. Very quite RV resort. The river roars 24 hours a day. We love the sound of the rushing water, others may not. The park is clean. Restrooms and laundry are very, very clean. Two nice areas for pets (on leash only). We will be back as we already have made reservations for next 4th of July. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though our on-the-river site needed staff assistance for our 32 foot Class C to park, the view under tall trees and next to rushing waters was fantastic. Grounds were immaculately groomed and landscaped. A private shuttle into the town of Leavenworth was available for those who did not tow. Bath and shower rooms were clean and close to the sites. The staff was friendly from check-in to check-out. Would return for another visit without hesitation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park right on the river. There's a few river front sites available for smaller rigs. Sites are very close to each other, so close in fact that my sewer connection was right next to my neighbor's picnic table. Just a bit awkward. Friendly staff and well maintained facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful setting on river, lovely grass & flowers- park is in much better condition outside than inside the buildings. Only a few showers which were well-used and messy. The spa was closed. Several miles from town. Pricey at $40, especially being parked inches away from next site (shared utilities). Great cable TV, but Wi-Fi and Verizon air card painfully slow. Owner did fantastic job backing us in to the narrow but level site. Wife a bit brusque, but this is basically a nice place. Enjoyed Leavenworth. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Neat well-maintained and clean park with a lot of shade. Interior roads paved, sites are a mix of gravel and concrete and ours was very close to level side to side. All sites are back in or pull in back out. Staff was very pleasant and gave us an escort to our site and helped me back in. Some sites are very close on the utility side but all have a nice well-maintained grass area with picnic table on the other side. The river is just below the campground and from our site was nice to listen to. Other than noise from the river very quiet at night. Wi-Fi connectivity a bit intermittent of an evening but had a good strong signal. Did not rate this as a 10 due to closeness of the sites. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Icicle is a great place to stay. Ask for the sites next to the river. It is possible to walk a few steps and fish (river really has trout in it). The sites are a little close but acceptable. Wi-Fi works and 50 amp works. Recommend going into Leavenworth; a great "Swiss" village. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice location, close to river, quiet, a little something for everyone. Some very nice sites with river view - pull in orientation, but if you want a view well worth it. The upper spots on the hill are somewhat remote but offer a good view as well. Some sites are a little tighter and cramped together than others but overall a nice park. Not much in the way of pull thrus, everything I saw was pull-in/back out or back in. Far enough off the beaten path to make it quiet but close enough to town. Walking distance to Sleeping Lady resort which allows guests to walk with dogs on their grounds. Very nice facilities and surrounding area for dogs. Never had a problem with rules or management like others noted. Plenty of camp hosts to help and staff did a great job of helping guests coming and going. We'd come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had wonderful river front site. Park is immaculate. Well managed. Manager is in cleaning up and cutting grass etc. as soon as someone leaves a site. No check in before 1 pm rule strictly adhered to. Even the off the river sites were quite nice, shaded and you can hear the river. It is a keeper. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WOW!! Very nice stay. River was running high because of the snow melt and was quite loud but as I can't hear well anyways, didn't bother me. Hosts were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. Was a wonderful stay. I was in site 60 which was crowded for me w/ a full size king cab Ford to park. Had to move once to let a large motor home out. Everyone friendly. No screaming kids. You want that, go to the KOA in town. Very beautiful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I was concerned about this park based on previous reviews but was very pleased with our stay. The owner has put in some new spaces near the entrance that are concrete and are big rig friendly. They are near the road but the noise was never an issue. The campground host was extremely helpful in guiding me to back my rig into the spot. The space we had allowed us to use our satellite, although they do have cable TV with extensive channels. The spaces towards the back of the park can be a little tight for big rigs, but it appears they are beginning to upgrade sites in the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at one of the campground cabins with another party who had an RV spot. The sleeper cabin was clean and comfortable. The restrooms were also clean. We hiked up the Enchantments (Snow Lake). Icicle River RV is the closest full service resort for access to hiking, mountain biking and kayaking etc. It is also great for visits to the town of Leavenworth. A very reasonable and safe campground for cabin campers. We made reservations for next year. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We stayed to participate in the Leavenworth Marathon. This was also the first week of Oktoberfest. The RV park was full, but we had no issues with noise. The park is relatively quiet and serene. This is a nice park with good amenities and a great location... Clean bathrooms, WiFI, Cable TV, group pavilions and a hot tub. The staff assisted us into our back-in site which was nice. The river spots are beautiful. One needs to make reservations far in advance, especially for the river sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed for a week and had a great time. There were excellent accommodations and a friendly and helpful staff. We were parked on top of a hill with a great view of the river. It is one of the most scenic parks, and we enjoyed the stay. We will return next year We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, we had a stream spot (pulled in head first and had the hookup on the correct side and that was nice.) The only problem we had was the manager who was a little rough. We came in with a five rig caravan and got the third degree for coming in all together and not dropping off our tow cars in town. That kind of started the visit off on the wrong foot. If the manager was nicer I would of rated it higher. I would come back even if I thought the rates were a little high. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You aren't the only one who had a bad experience at Icicle River RV Park. The park was as nice as the hosts were horrible. This is one park you need to steer away from. Here is our experience. We tried to call and make a reservation at 5:30PM but the office was closed. We showed up around 9:30PM and no one was at the office so we were forced to drive into the campground to get turned around and leave. Just then a lady called to us and was very upset that we drove around the circle without talking to her first. I wanted to leave but she said there was no other place to stay. She didn't bother to tell us about the KOA 5 minutes away with plenty of vacancy. We were lectured to like we were criminals about everything she could think of while she set us up for the night. Then her old man came in and when he found out we had 2 children he said sarcastically, "That's just what we need." When I was hooking up my trailer to leave, the old man was mowing the lawns on either side of us and spraying me with rocks as I covered my eyes. Due to his timing it's hard to believe that he wasn't doing it on purpose. He turned the mower off a couple of times and stared at me as if he wanted me to hurry up and leave so he could mow under my trailer. Finally, they over-charged us $12.65 more than my receipt. Shame on these two people, they are NOT making happy campers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park with nice sites, clean and neat. Ours was gravel but most are paved. Park was well kept and not far from town. The staff was friendly except for one, who acted like a boot camp staff sargent. We plan to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If we weren't traveling with our dogs I would have given this park a 10 rating. After informing the staff that we have three dogs, they assigned us to site 29-30, with the warning that we have to make sure our dogs wouldn't disturb others. Once we got all set up we realized that they put us on a very busy corner in the park. Sitting outside was a challenge because every time our dogs saw another pooch walk by, which happens frequently, our dogs would bark. The park was fairly empty so I have no idea why the staff thought that spot would work for us, except that perhaps they don't travel with dogs. This park is maintained beautifully and kept very clean, and the bathrooms are clean and they have a nice laundry facility. We wouldn't stay here again unless we made sure we had a VERY private site so we could just relax without worry about someone walking by every five to ten minutes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very well kept park. Clean and well run. The 2 managers are somewhat regimental but I had no problems with them. I will stay here again for sure. The WiFi was very fast. The river site was wonderful and you can listen to the river flow til you go sleep. Loved it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We absolutely LOVE it here! We have been here a few times and this is the first time I have actually reviewed it. I was sorry to hear that other guests had a bad experience. We have NEVER had a bad experience with the staff. We have always been met by cheerful, helpful, employees as we enter which is appreciated as the driveway is very small, especially for big rigs. (They are checking to see if you have reservations.) We live just a few hours away from this campground, so when we head out later in the day for a trip and are headed this way, we stop here. The town, of Leavenworth is VERY charming and shopping and walking are very pleasant. There are a lot of activities always going on in Leavenworth, a short drive away. HIking and outdoor activities abound!! Don't miss out! But make reservations! It books up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The setting by the Icicle River is beautiful, and overall the park is well maintained although the restrooms could have been a bit cleaner. However, we have camped here 3 times, and each of those stays was ruined by the surly attitude of the park staff. By gum, don't step out of line or do ANYTHING wrong here or you will get a lecture as if you're 10 years old again and about to visit the woodshed. As someone else noted, I think this park is happy with their long-term guests and wish nothing to do with us overnighters. We were going to stay a second night but the rude, condescending attitude of the lady at the front desk chased us out (I think that was her intent!) Beware. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They really run a tight ship here. The park is beautiful with flowers, grass mowed daily, trees but the whole time we felt like we were being watched just waiting to be jumped on some infraction and sure enough we were. The people that run the place are rude and it seems to rub off on the rest of the RV'rs. A pretty unfriendly place. We stayed on the river, minded our own business and decided to stay longer but needed to move to another site. By the time time Friday night rolled around they had people so packed into spots that you wouldn't think could actually fit a car. We would probably only stay on the river if we stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is without question one of the most beautiful RV Resorts in Eastern Washington. The setting on the banks the Icicle River is spectacular and the location is convenient for hiking, biking, golfing and touring the town of Leavenworth. The park is well maintained with beautiful landscaping. Wi-Fi coverage was good, as well as an upgraded cable T.V. available at all sites. It is one of the only parks that offer assistance by the staff when entering the park and maneuvering into the site. The park is peaceful and very secure in a serene setting surrounded by wildlife,natural beauty and the calming sound of the Icicle River. We highly recommend this park!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park in a lovely treed setting - satellite was not feasible but they have cable at all sights. Had to ask for the bathroom to be cleaned once (it had not been cleaned for 24 hours and was getting pretty disgraceful). Nice park, but pricier than it should be for what's available. We were in our 45 foot Class A motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though we made our reservations two months in advance, we were still put in a horrid little spot that would have had our dining room window some 18 inches from that of our neighbors. (The set-up where they had us, is such that one RV backs in, while the neighbor pulls in front-forward). When I check into a hotel, I don't want a window to my neighbor's room! When we told them the space was unacceptable, they gave us very few options for change. When we did get settled in, we found that we had no Wi-Fi; the office told us we were probably "too far away" to use it. All in all, the feeling was that the park strongly favors their yearly visitors, and that those of us who are here for two or three nights really don't matter much. By the way, if you're trying to call them for a reservation, I was amazed to hear the woman in the office tell at least six callers they'd have to call back while I was checking in. The phone wouldn't stop ringing, and only one person was there to check people in and answer the phones! It took us six weeks of calling to finally make a reservation, now I know why. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here before. This park is located on the Icicle River which was really flowing fast when we stayed here. The park is very clean and well maintained, with big generous sites. The park is located close to Leavenworth and the Leavenworth Golf Club. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall nice park. Lots of trees and grass, but tight sites. Nice restrooms. Staff over-zealous about where you drive on entry roads. Upper loop is right on the highway, rough road to get there, and some sites near impossible to back into. Insist on sites down near the river. Sewer pipe above my admittedly-low discharge, I had to pull out, park in the roadway, and re-hook water to dump tanks (that may have been unique to my assigned spot.) Park is well situated on road to many hiking trails further up Icicle River. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A clean, well kept and friendly park. It is located next to the music school which has paved walking paths for delightful strolls. The river was a trickle when we were here. It is a short drive to the town of Leavenworth which is a quaint Bavarian-style tourist town. The laundry facilities were clean and we enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice park, well maintained with mostly adults. Tight spaces on some sites. Good location for visiting Leavenworth (a small Bavairan-like town). Good Wi-Fi. Excellent work campers: friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Downside is it's not quite large enough for our 45' coach. Better for 40' and shorter. My suggestion would be if you are 40 feet or shorter: this is a very nice, tidy campground. If you are 40 feet or longer: unhook first and look around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Somewhat easy access to park. The road in the park is narrow and has some tight spots. They have all back in sites. There are some spots that are hard to get into. You can fish right on the creek from the park. Staff was friendly. WI-FI and cable were available. No bars for Verizon and the trees obstructed the use of our DISH. This area has allot of activities for the whole family. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful well maintained RV park in Leavenworth, WA which is a really fun place to visit. The sites are nicely situated and some are on the river. The Camp host was helpful in assisting us getting parked and the office help was courteous and pleasant to talk to. This park is nestled between mountains and the scenery is beautiful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park with level and mostly shaded sites. Our site required an extension from the 50 amp hookup to the rear of our trailer. Hookups are near the front of the sites. They advertise WiFi but say they don't guarantee it as ours dropped out from time to time. Also, the laundry only had a few washers and dryers. But it is a beautiful setting by the river. Cell phone service didn't work for our Verizon service either. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great park! Very impressed! Yes, some of the sites are close together, but to be right on the river is well worth it!! Would not recommend the "bluff" sites as you have to back your rig down a steep hill to get out! The scenery is spectacular!!! We were in site 22 with a very nice lawn area in front of the river, we could really stretch out - I have booked it for a week next year! Not much for smaller kids to do, but my teenagers really enjoyed the park. Surprising, but as they could explore along the river, watch bald eagles and surf the internet with ease! Great WiFi access in the lower sites. Absolutely the cleanest bathroom and showers I have seen yet...tiled and spotless!! Hosts were exceptional...never seen someone work so hard to keep the grounds perfectly manicured! Very quiet and peaceful... can you tell I had a great time here?? Although it has many big rig sites, it is an older park with quite a few smaller sites, no tents are allowed, however. Not one of the "luxury concrete rv resorts", which I do like too! But quite a gem!! Will make this a yearly event! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We lucked into a site (#111) which is a little bit of a climb but sits on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Icicle River. The sites are close as previous reviewers have noted. But, it is a very nice park and ideally located. It's probably the nicest one in the area. I don't believe I felt "packed in like a sardine". They were full but we didn't feel all that uncomfortable. Their WIFI is a little lacking but it is free. No pool but a nice spa that my husband used and liked. Office staff very nice. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Some of the sites are right on the river, but you can hear the river throughout the park. The sites on the river are back-in, not pull-through, and they tend to be narrower than the sites set back slightly from the river. There is not a whole lot of privacy. Some of the riverside sites were dusty; others were gravel. Wifi was weak and spotty, and the same is true of the cell coverage. Great location -- lots of hiking nearby, throughout the Icicle Creek area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have read the past reviews and have found this park to be the best in the area. It is well maintained and cared for. Both the manager couples were very friendly and helpful to all the people we saw them with. They even would stop by if they saw you outside, to see how everything is going and to offer insight of events that are currently going on in the area. The showers are pay, and some of the river front sites are close together for units with slides. We were off the river and had plenty of room to stretch out, and could hear the river running all the time. We had a great time here and we stayed for 5 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great views, great location close to Leavenworth. Managers were very nice and helpful. Very clean laundry facility though only two washers and dryers. Showers were clean. Had several common eating shelters for family gatherings etc. We were in site 17 backing onto the river, great location. Will definitely set up a future trip based on staying at this park. Nicest Rv park we've ever stayed in given the park, scenery and proximity to things to do (Leavenworth, Wenatchee). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in a river front site. Very nice, however there was no grass at our site. We were in a 31 foot motorhome and it takes some maneuvering to back out of the site. Check in is very organized, the managers are out on the road to greet you and have walkie talkies on to communicate with the desk personnel. They have very strict leash rules on pets. Would recommend calling 3 months in advance if you plan to stay in the summertime. We will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We usually make it to Leavenworth about once a year and Stay at the KOA in town. This year we decided to try Icicle River and were severely dissapointed. First, there must be new campground managers since the previous reviews because these people were not one bit friendly as we expected. Also, the sites are packed in like sardines. Our particular site shared a drive with our next door neighbors. One good thing about the place is that if you can get past the packed in feeling, the scenery is gorgeous. The sites right on the river are just that - right on the river! I'm talking a few feet from this raging force! I wouldn't recommend staying at these sites with small kids when the river is rushing that fast. The restrooms and showers were clean. Unfortunately we won't be staying here again as long as the same managers are running the place. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

The park is nicely decorated and several miles from town, many sites are right against the river. Not a large park for the number of rigs squeezed in there. We drove through it and stayed elsewhere because it was so cramped. Seemed more appealing to adults. However, continue on about 10 miles further into the canyon and find the well-maintained Icicle Gorge Loop Trail (3 miles). It was stunning in October! Much of it runs along the river and our dogs loved it too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Agree with early post--good but not a top 100 campground. Clean and good repair. We were in an upper space (90) that backed to the road--some road noise in early am and early evening. While the park had wifi, it did not reach the upper locations--had to take the puter to office area. Their brochure advertises shuttle to town (4 miles) but when asked the office to use, they did not offer. Lots of kids in campground but not really much for them--in fact number of "rules" baring under 14 from spa and putting green. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean well maintained park. It appears to be an older park with sites scattered here and there. A lot of the sites have side by side hookups. Our site was one of those and we had to pull in facing a hill (no view). The neighbors slide and our slide were only one foot apart. We could look into each others living rooms. Some streets are paved and some are gravel. We were in a 39 foot motorhome and didn't have any more problems navigating this park than others we have stayed at. Sites were concrete, gravel or grass. Most were reasonably level. They only have 30 amp. We could have used 50 amp since the temperature was approaching 100 degrees. WiFi was free and worked good at our site close to the office, don't know how well it worked at the other sites. The park is surrounded by mountains, but it looked like a lot of the trees have been burned in a forest fire. It is a nice park, but I don't think it is "one of the 100 best campgrounds by Good Sam" or "one of the Top 2 Washington State Resorts" that their advertising says. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I read earlier comments about the tightness of this park and the difficulty in getting in and out, and they are correct. Nevertheless, we just completed a week here, and would come back again and again, even if we had to slather the sides of the RV with vaseline. This beautiful park is surrounded on all sides by soaring, majestic mountains,and has a bold river, the Icicle River, running right through it. No matter where you are in the park, you can hear the river bubbling and gurgling over the rocks. Also, I cannot adequately describe the people who run this park but I can say they are the kindest, most helpful people I have ever encountered in an RV park. The staff is constantly roaming around the park, helping people park, making sure everything is okay, bringing anything you might need, and doing all they can to make your stay better. We have stayed at parks that cost millions to build, but have never stayed at a warmer, more cozy, more comfortable one than this one. Despite the "tightness" of the park, it is well worth your visit. And, speaking of visiting, you must plan on spending time in the city of Leavenworth. The town is totally and completely a Bavarian village with wonderful shops and outstanding German restaurants. You will love this place! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have never bee crammed in so tight in 2 and half years of fulltiming. The site we were in and most of the river front site are side by side. We could not open our blinds because of the other rv's were 3 ft away. The river sites require a year advance reservation. I had to rake up the pine needles up in my site they were so thick after two nights of wind. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Would get a 10, but nothing for the kids to do. Management says that's what the KOA down the street is for. Rated one of the 100 best campgrounds by Good Sam, and for good reasons. Very clean, employees always walking around to make sure everything is clean and running. The site I had was very well shaded which is nice for a pop-up. It was a very warm weekend for June. Fire rings not available at all sites. Firewood sold at camp store. Fair amount of basic supplies if you forget something. I'll go here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Nice park, quiet, not as much for children todo but does have a river, putting green and a nice clean atmosphere. Some spaces were a bit on the short side. We could hardly park our tow vehicle out of the road at our site. Stayed there a week while touring the area. Would go back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We recently spent 5 days here and overall, liked it very much. The RV Park is situated along the banks of the Icicle River and some sites back to the river. There is a small swimming and wading beach on the river which delights young children. There is a laundry facility, hot tub, putting green and pavillion on the premises. Many large rigs camping here are renting spaces for a month or longer. The overnight spots are
limited and all in the same area. Reservations are a good idea as the park is very crowded during the dry summer months. The management is helpful and friendly. The park was very well maintained and facilities were clean. You get a 10% discount with your Good Sam or AAA card. Our only complaint is the overnight spots are too close together - so much so that a slideout was just inches from our trailer window. Some of the sites are short so that it is difficult to park your car without sticking out into the main road. There were traffic jams in the morning as big rigs were preparing to check out. We camped here in a camper.

Very nice park. Entrance/exit road somewhat narrow and would make 2-way traffic kozy. Many sites appear to be only 25-30 feet long, but some are larger. This could mean parking your vehicle sideways in front of your coach hanging out into the road, making it interesting for others to get by. This caused minor traffic jam when leaving on Sunday when trucks would be hooking up to trailers, they stuck out into the road blocking traffic. Not much else you could do, though. May need to back your rig down the road to your site. Most
interior roads are paved. Some sites have concrete pads, while others are gravel. My site (#82) was gravel, a bit downhill to the rear and an inch off from being level side-to-side. Needed to use several blocks for rear stabilizers. All have grass area, picnic table and fire ring. No pool, but nearby river is nice and cold. Exactly 3 miles from Highway 2, so watch your odometer because sign might be hard to see (kind of small and down low). Nice place to stay for a few days. We camped here in a camper.

Very clean park. Employees were always out walking around making sure everything looked good. Only 3 miles from town, real convienant location. We camped here in a camper.
Johnny Creek is a beautiful National Forest Service campground located about 12 miles from the Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth. This campground is situated at the confluence of Johnny and Icicle Creeks and is split into two areas, Lower Johnny and Upper Johnny. Both areas are nice, but Lower Johnny is the best because many of the sites give you views and direct access to Icicle Creek. The sites are spacious, quite private, peaceful and beautiful. There are no fancy amenities here, just vault toilets, a picnic table, a fire ring and the great outdoors. This campground appeals mostly to tents and those with camper vans, truck campers, pop-up trailers, small travel trailers or small motorhomes, although motorhomes in the 30' range should have no problem fitting into some sites. Access roads and sites are paved. Drinking water is available but there are no hook-ups or dump station. Come prepared to be self contained and laid back! All of the NFS campgrounds along Icicle River Road are popular in the summer. Get there early to nab a spot on the weekends. Our rate reflects the fact that we have a Federal Senior Pass and get 50% off the regular rate. Fees for Lower Johnny are two dollars more than for Upper Johnny. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful park, and the fact that it was very quiet during the July 4th weekend was really appreciated. The one thing that knocks the score down is the mosquitoes. They are thicker than flies at a garbage pit; we burned through 4 big citronella candles and two bottles of Deep-Woods bug repellent over a 4 day weekend. The beach has two parts, the lake side which was warm but rocky, and the river side which was sandier but frigid from the snow melt. The bugs were still thick, even resting 20 feet offshore. TV reception was non-existent with the antenna, since there are several mountain peaks between nearby Leavenworth and the park. We don't have a dish, but the trees kept interrupting our Sirius/XM reception. My wife & daughter used the parks showers and reported them clean, but outdated. My daughter didn't put her jeans on the stall doors hook, and they got pretty wet from the overspray. There was plenty of hot water and the structure was clean and bug free. Water pressure in the RV was fine, as was the 50A service the few hours we needed the A/C on. That night, we ran the electric heaters and they performed fine, even with both TV's and laptops running. Word of warning: The park still has part of the south campground closed due to diseased trees, so if you have a long motorhome you will not be able to maneuver around that loop. Make sure you reserve, and enter, the North campground. Finally, the park is about 30 road miles from the city of Leavenworth, and there are lots of deer and elk in the area, along with some bears. Drive at (or under) the speed limit in the area; the does like to walk down the middle of US2 at dusk, fortunately a beep of the horn drives them back into the brush. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This state park is very nice. All the outside pull-thrus in the North campground loops have water and 50 amp electricity. A nice job has been done trimming almost all trees to prevent scratches. Loop 2 in the North campground was closed for some tree removal and all of the South campground was closed for the same reason. Access to boat launching and beaches for swimming in the summer were excellent. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was packed for a fall weekend! We arrived about 10A on a Saturday and only found 3 pull thru full service sites. The area was experiencing a cold front so the water was turned off at the sites. I have a 40ft American Coach and had troubles with the pull thru. We ended up at site 101, tight fit but we managed. So peaceful and quiet. A lot of trees so OTA TV or satellite was not possible, that's OK we have a large selection of DVD's. Close enough to Wenatchee we did get the local radio stations for news. My Verizon Wireless service was solid 4 bars, blackberry worked very well. Just watch your corners as its tight for a bigger coach, but so beautiful and worth it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located 20 miles west of Leavenworth, this is a good campground if you want to get back to nature. Nice walking trails located near the lake. Larger RV's and fifth wheels should use the north campground as the south campground has tighter turns and smaller sites. Limited sites available for larger RV's. It is a very popular park - we arrived at 4pm on the Friday of Columbus Day weekend, and we were lucky to get a site, let alone one that would accommodate our 40' RV. The sites on the outside of the loop have electric and water, and the sites on the inside of the loop are for dry camping. The electric / water sites are semi-circular pull-throughs and the turns on many of them are too tight for long RV's. The dump station located at the entrance is well designed and accommodates two RVs. We would give the park a higher rating if some of the low branches were cut back, and the pull-through sites were designed better for larger RVs. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very popular park in the summer. It's so popular that "reserved" signs don't always get posted at the camping sites. At the park entrance, there is a sign specifying that if you don't have a reservation, you can pull into an "unmarked" site, but you are still required to check the "posted list" at the pay station. This applies both to the utility and regular sites. I didn't have a reservation and I had to move twice because an unmarked site ended up being on the "posted" list as "reserved." The camping sites are not very level but heck, it's a forest! Site #120 is the worst for not being level. Although this is a utility site, I recommend that you use this one for tent camping only. The entire area of Site 120 is a very steep "dip" and I don't see how any type of RV or trailer can get level on that one. I had pulled into this slot, and ended up moving a third time after deciding I couldn't deal with the "dip" in that site. I eventually found a site I could stay in. I have stayed in this park before when I didn't have electric leveling jacks and it was a pain to get level. However, this time, I had the electric jacks, and no problem (except for Site120)! The "community waste dump" at the entrance of the park is set up so that two RV's can dump at the same time, and it doesn't matter which way they come in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like serenity and being in the woods, this is the campground for you! We stayed here in off season and during the week, and there was hardly anyone there. The lake is just minutes away along well-maintained hiking trails, though in the northern park (where w/e hookups are) there isn't a beach for swimming. The south area has a nice day area with a beach. A dump station is conveniently located at the entrance to the northern campground. We were able to negotiate the northern area with a 40-foot rig and toad. Don't try it in the south, however. Roads are tight, rough, with very sharp curves. The restrooms were very clean, hot showers 50 cents for 3 minutes. The only problem we had was one leg of our 50amp circuit was not hot and they didn't seem to know how to fix it. There is a small convenience store, cafe and bar nearby, but not much else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The north entrance to Lake Wenatchee State Park contains the RV spots, both utility and non-utility. The south entrance appears to be only for tents. The "utility" spots are located on the outer edge of Loop 1 and Loop 2 of the north entrance. The utility sites contain a "half circle" RV parking spot, on dirt, where you "bend" your RV around the half circle in order to connect to the post (more difficult with the larger rigs!). The "half circle" was very uneven, but it's a forest, what can you expect? I use Lynx blocks and I gave up trying to get level. But, on the good side, along with your RV parking spot, you get a very spacious picnic area and a tent pad. TV reception via antenna was sufficient, not perfect, but sufficient. You can get the networks and PBS. A popular lake and boat ramp are within walking distance, and there is a store for some supplies. If you choose to dry camp, the non-utility sites in the north entrance have good back-in slots with the same spacious picnic area and tent pad. There are sufficient trees for adequate shade, but spaced far enough apart that privacy is compromised. You can see all your neighbors and they can see you! The reason for the trees being spaced apart is the result of a posted forest management plan which actually made sense to me, even though I'm not a botanist or vegetation expert. I enjoyed my stay despite sleeping very unlevel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The north camp sites are better suited for RV's as they have power and water. I believe all the sites have been upgraded to 50 amp service (our site was anyway). Awesome privacy. Wonderful hiking. Great swimming. Lots of play areas for the kids! Only improvement we'd like is sewer hookup - but it is a State Park. We left this campground to stay at Thousand Trails with some friends. Funny, we kept driving back to this park to swim and play! We would absolutely stay here again. It's wonderful! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place right on the river with easy access and is located a couple of miles from Leavenworth, WA. Just wish you could fish in the river next to the resort. Be careful of the coaxial hook-up. Mine was hot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground. Helpful staff. We camp here every year for the Autumn Leaf Festival weekend. This year, because of all the wildfires, we weren't allowed to have fires. We still congregated with our large group around the fire pit. One friend brought his propane fire pit. Visiting with friends around the fire in the grassy area is the best part of the weekend! We don't use most of the amenities: pool, rental bikes, pedal cars, etc. I feel it's very expensive to camp here but the campground is in the trees with nice improved campsites and lots of amenities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is absolutely not, repeat not, big rig friendly. Very narrow interior roads. Tight entrance and exit. Older style KOA. The road leading to our pull through ( note that the park escort suggested I disconnect my TOAD as the road was too tight of a turn!) was so tight that I hit tree limbs and leaves and then hit and bent my OASIS exhaust on a rock that was in the road! This should stand as a warning to anyone over 38'. Other than our issues it's just a typical smallish KOA. We won't return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For me this was the worst camping experience of any campground I've every stayed. They stack you on top of each other virtually. The park was overly full. We were next some friendly people but with very little room between us. Another camper came in next to us and a staff member told me that I'd have to move my picnic table as it was on his site. I promptly told him I didn't place it there in the first place. We were in a tent camper and already cramped to start off with. It was more like a huge party of sorts for people here, and the restrooms were so inaccessible due to having to walk between camping cabins from the road. The other access was to drive around to the other side, and then there was no where to park much less turn around. There were so many people milling around that I had to be very careful as to not hit someone. A very unpleasant camping experience for me. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I do not appreciate making an online reservation for $64, and find out when I arrive: the fee is actual $84 plus another $4.50 per night for a child. I did get a refund after I complained. Also, I am not pleased to hear about the internal management problems. It does not make me want to come back with an uncertain future of what to expect. All in all, this is a decent park for families, with lots to do. But I would not recommend if you want to relax and be quiet. I am not sure yet, if I will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is probably a great campground if you're here with a young family. We asked for a level site as the last time we were here we were up on the hill in site #25. We have a 42 foot motorhome and tow a car, it was impossible to get through the narrow dirt, hilly road and into our site. This time we got one of their "Super Full Hook Up Sites" #46 which did get us on the level but we paid a price. All the site gets you is a gas grill on site and a fire ring, neither of which we used. We were beside the staff trailer and they were so close our side awning touched their permanent porch roof. The picnic table is a plastic round one with attached benches and was filthy when we arrived with peanut butter and jelly from the last campers. There is an umbrella on the table so you can't put a cloth down which I like to do. This site was way overpriced for what it got us and the staff beside us were noisy at night until 11pm. There is a whole other section to the park called The Meadow that isn't shown on their map. They have a large grassy field but I don't think there are hook-ups at all up there, maybe water. This park has tons of KOA's little cabins and I'm sure it's the money they get from the Super Full Hookup sites that pays for these. There were also lots of loud motorcycles in the park and because we were on the main road all of them and the delivery trucks and everyone who was checking in drove right by our RV and sometimes the traffic would back up right in front of our RV. All in all this was not a good experience and despite the rave reviews on this park I would have to disagree and will not go, we feel it is way overpriced even for the regular RV sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Amazing. Beautiful and clean. I am retired and although we had no kids along, this is the place for a family vacation. Staff were excellent. One of the best KOA's I've seen. Truly something for everyone and the location is great. 10 stars. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 6 nights and loved it! The park was fairly empty, which I believe is what made our stay as enjoyable. I do believe the sites are close together, and I do not think I would enjoy being sandwiched in so much, but again, the park was empty, so it was lovely! We were able to take our three dogs to the fenced in dog run, and that was nice for the dogs. But: and this is NOT a complaint about the park as much as it is about other dog owners. I picked up ODP (other dog's p-waste) every single time I took my dogs there. And I do mean every time. The park provides doggy bags and a trash can right by the dog park, so I cannot fathom why someone won't pick up after their dog. I do NOT want my dog tracking ODP into my travel trailer! Really people: pick up after your dog. If you cannot, then please do not bring them with you. The Wenatchee River runs by the camp. We walked our dogs down there and they were able to play in the river, too! All in all, a very nice place to camp. If you have a family and want to come here in the summer I would recommend it, as I understand there are many activities for families. One item that prevents us from giving this park a 10 is that the fire "pits" they provide are WAY too small to have a camp fire. They provide free firewood if you cut it yourself, which we did, but you have to make a fire in the grills. Just doesn't work well. The more expensive sites come with a fire ring. The park staff is getting ready for the summer season, which includes providing a paved patio for almost every space. Nice, but I'm not sure it is totally necessary. Because of the space we were in (#17), and the length of our TT, the door to our trailer wasn't even on the paved section, so that was kind of inconvenient. Again, I'd recommend this park to families in the summer, and to those without children BEFORE school lets out! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a nice campground and very close to downtown Leavenworth, which was the whole point of our trip. They had some fun activities planned for the kids for the weekend because it was their 30th Anniversary. I don't know if they have activities like that planned regularly. The playground and pool were very nice and well kept. The water front access to the River was very limited and Rocky. The sites are extremely close together and tight. We were able to put our slide out and awning out, but their is no privacy and not much space to spread out. The restrooms were clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were put in a very small site right next to 4 large dumpsters which banged all night long as people did not take care in closing the lids. The washrooms and showers were in short supply for the number of sites, and were not very clean. Spa was for "over 18" but saw many young teenagers in there unattended. Pool was "parents to supervise children under 12" but this was not followed at any time while we were here. Sites were extremely close together. Would never recommend this KOA to anyone!!! We had better RV parks for $20/night and here we paid $60. for water/sewer only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice location but very crowded. I belive that they need to restrict size of units. Interior roads are small and limited. Spaces are set up bad and hard to access. Sewer dump under some tables,(our site) and a class A dumping right at dinner time. Great for smaller trailers or tent camping We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park. Lots of trees, and quiet. It was a bit cramped, but we could maneuver our 29' OK. Cable and Wi-Fi were fine. Shuttle to town 1 mile away. 1/2 mile to Safeway. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very congested campground, it felt like we were camping in a parking lot. We have a 30' travel trailer and were placed in the "meadow" section of the park where only power was available. Every vehicle and extra persons including visitors have to pay $5/day. The only reason why I gave this park a '2' rating is because of their clean bathrooms and showers. My recommendation, stay here only if you're in a pinch. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you are out camping with kids, Pine Village should probably be on your list. There are lots of activities for youngsters and young friendships are quickly made at the pool or pool table (or the more than a dozen other activities designed to keep kids occupied. If, however, you are passing through in a large RV and want to stop for a day or two in the touristy but fun town of Leavenworth, this KOA may not be your best choice. Most of their regular sites seem designed for “campers,” not coaches. The only place they could fit our 45 footer was in the “Meadow,” an open field where they had no sewer and no marked spaces (water and electric are available). Luckily we arrived early and had time to move our coach after our parking guide placed us too close to a tree to be able to open a necessary slide. By the time evening came, we had rigs surrounding us so closely that no one could fully extend most awnings. We have stayed in fields before, but not to pay $46/night (with discount) for a site without full hookups. Perhaps they thought we should pay a premium since we could pass the salt and pepper back and forth with our neighbors without having to leave our coaches. Thank goodness that all of our newly found neighbors/friends were wonderful. As a positive, the campground is just at the edge of town and a shuttle will carry guests back and forth to the center of Leavenworth without need of private transportation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a busy park with a lot going on. There is river access for swimming, tube rental for floating down river, lots of stuff for kids to do. Some of the spots are tight and they really pack you in here. We stayed in the main park but the meadow looked a little quieter out there. There are some tight spots maneuvering as well but had no problems with a 33 foot motorhome. Overall, facilities are decent considering the volume of people and kids here. We would go back but if its just the wife and I, we would rather find somewhere quieter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is beautifully situated on the banks of the Wenatchee River, has great amenities and the Wi-Fi works really well! Extremely friendly and helpful staff here. Enjoyed one of the large, deluxe sites as it was all that was available for the night. We loved this campground and will definitely stay here again; even thought it's a little pricey. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed our stay here. They allow late check out, if your spot is not reserved for that day. This was a great as our sons were on a rafting trip with their scout group on check out day. They allowed us to stay until their return, so we did not have to go and park in town and wait. The staff was friendly and helpful. The escort to the site was great and quick and even helped direct us in. Our kids loved the pool, playground and the carts. They offer a shuttle service into town. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

After witnessing an exchange with the rudest owner I have ever seen would never stay here again. The owner came to a family movie after it had already started sqeezed into a spot directly in front of two families and when politely asked to move she dismissed them, did not move and stated " I am the owner". As if her being the owner allowed her to block the view of children and dismiss her customers. Couldn't believe what I heard. Never will I stay there again and I hope those of you who read these reviews and care about the quality of your dollar, and customer service will consider this before making a reservation there. Thanks We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

I did not enjoy my stay here at all. When we checked in we had to be escorted to our site. It took 25 minutes for someone to escort us. The first site was so cramped, I asked to leave. I felt the slide out would strike something. This was a pull through site too. We ended up moving to a deluxe site that had no sewer hookup and was on grass. I was unable to level the RV so we left in the morning. The scenery was beautiful but not worth being packed in like sardines. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was very full. There were only 3 sites available, one with deluxe hook-ups, one with water and electric near front entrance and a LOT of large families and one in the "meadow". After I paid my $45 I found out this was in the back across a small meadow from the back of the Safeway store. I was told it would be quiet, but you could hear the truck traffic clearly. The ground was very wet, but fairly firm. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This KOA was horrid! We were packed in so tightly you could barely breathe! The place was a mud hole and some of the workers swore so much it would make a sailor blush. It was too expensive and very noisy. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

It was very nice. It had a great location with a very nice river area to swim at. The staff is very pleasant also. Enjoyed stay very much. Don't know what anybody else on this page is talking about. They even have free firewood as long as you chop it yourself. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very good for a KOA. The property is very large with a great variety of site size and layout. We are here early in their season and find them still busy getting everything cleaned up and ready for the Maifest that happens in Leavenworth. Within walking distance of down town Leavenworth and "Worth" the price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our stay at The Pine village KOA in Leavenworth WA was a very dissapointing experience. The sewer leachfield was overflowing when we got there and smelled awfull throughout the campground. The site we were assigned was not level and was just a muddy hole in a crowded field. We could have accepted these minor problems, but the owner and his sister were the most unpleasant part of the whole trip. They were rude and uncaring, and seemed more intent on screaming at each other, and their harried staff, than on helping solve issues. We have stayed at several KOA's in the past with varied opinions, but this one is about the worst we have come accross. If you are seeking an overcrowded and noisy environment with no organization then this may just be the place you are looking for. For ourselves, this stay ruined our entire KOA camping experience and we will Never return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is pretty good, but we were in a meadow site this trip and I won't do that again. There are a lot of activities for the kids, but it gets a little bit crowded and the meadow sites aren't big. The playground is fantastic and the hay ride was really fun for our son. We would go back, but we would book earlier so as to not have to stay in a meadow site again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
As a retired couple we did not find this to be the over-crowded, kids gone wild KOA others have described. The park was full and kids were being kids, but we have seen a lot worse. We were able to get quality pool time both days we were there and enjoyed walking to and from town. There is a scheduled shuttle for those of you not up to walking 4-5 miles round trip. Not for those seeking peace and quiet during the summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the second time we have stayed at this KOA. Spots are tight, found cigarette butts in our site and it is a little over priced. We made reservations and when we showed up I asked to look at the spot first and happy that I took the time to do so. They did offer us another spot to look at too, which was a lot better than the one they had chosen at the time of our reservation. The restrooms have been clean both times we have stayed and this is one thing I am very picky about. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Park has many amenities, pool, espresso-ice cream stand, store, many activities and the river has a nice sandy beach. The problem is the tightness of the sites. There is no privacy at all and all you see from your windows is other rigs or tents. It is also the noisiest park we have stayed in. The quite time is 11 and there is yelling and screaming right up to 11. If you like no privacy or natural setting and don't mind the noise it is a great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was like camping in a parking lot. It was so crowded - I will never camp here again. The sewer dump at the site next to ours backed up and they finally came to fix it, then sprayed down our entire site with a hose creating giant stinky mudpuddles that were there the entire 3 days we stayed. The kids enjoyed the pool but it was so crowded that they really couldn't play. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is close to downtown area. We even walked it once and large grocery nearby. They provide shuttle service if you don't want to drive. A large park, lots of sites, but not an overly cramped feel and in the woods. Family owned/family oriented amenities. Great Saturday morning pancake breakfast. We enjoyed chopping our own campfire wood from the provided log pile. We especially liked the numerous little trails around the park for walking our dogs. Several led down to the scenic river. Camp store offers camp items and gifts. We have a motorhome and will likely stay again because it's both scenic and close to town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely the worst KOA or RV resort We have ever camped at. We were so tightly packed in - the only view was of other RV's. The owners have a house across from the camp ground where they come and go at all hours - racing as fast as they can, raising dust, making noise, not to mention the danger to all the kids in the park. I have to admit the facilities we're clean, and staff were presentable, but not overly friendly. When we arrived, landed in the middle of a heated arguement between our new neighbors and one of the staff, who tried to draw us in on the dispute. They parked us in a mud hole, that would not dry up all week(we all know how much fun this is). They have a great site along the river for swimming, unfortunately they don't enforce the "NO FISHING" rule - So you have to take your chances swimming around ignorant anglers submersed hooks. They kept packing people in until the wee hours of the morning, everyone in the RV area was disgruntled and grumpy cause of the lack of sleep. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the worse KOA campground that we have ever stayed at. Campers were packed in like sardines. It was dusty with children riding on go-carts in and among the campers, and people trying to get to their sites. We had already paid for one night, and planned to stay for 3, but did ask for our money back after we saw what it was like and when they tried to put us in a campsite that our 22ft truck/camper would not even fit in. They did not give us our money back and had stated there were no other campsites available, but did give us another one, finally. There were approximately 8 children's bikes in the first site right next to ours. When they finally changed our site, there were 4 bikes leaning on the post for our water, electric, etc. Campers and many tents were at almost each camp site, along with dogs who used the common grassy area for their "business." It was awful and I would never recommend anyone stay at this KOA. They brought bus loads of people to the campground for tubing on the Wenatchee River. Evidently a popular place if you like very unruly children and dogs and packed in like rats or sardines. One motorhome camper leaving yelled to us "KOA is (terrible), so don't spend your money here." Wish we had just turned around right then. This, as I stated, is the worse KOA campground we have ever stayed at. The local people at the Safeway and Gas Station called it the rat hole. We agree! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
As KOA's go, this one wasn't bad. You could hear the rumble of the train across the river, but no train whistles in the wee hours of the morning (or at any other time). Swimming pool was decent size. Sites were level (at least ours was). Office/store was cramped, but well stocked with food, soda, camping/RV supplies and souvenirs. Narrow roads and no check-in parking area caused some delays getting in/out. Large speed bumps on access road were a pain! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is the second time we've stayed here and it is convenienent to Leavenworth. It's nice, but a little tight in places and our spot was right next to where you park to register and I got awfully tired of listening to P/s and Cummins diesels. Paid $28 for 1 night and $38 for the second. Not sure about that, but didn't notice it till after we left. The management was REALLY nice, all of it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
TTN Rate. Rating would be higher but staff did not care that folks complained about the power issues during our stay. Previous reviews may reflect the problem has existed for quite a while. Sewer sites are only 30 AMP. Some 50 AMP but no sewer hook-ups. Our Electrical Management System is designed to interrupt power from the stanchion to the RV when the voltage spikes 134 (or higher) then resumes when the voltage returns to normal. We were gone during the day but during the time we were in the RV, the power was interrupted no less than 9 times in 4 days due to high voltage (138-139). The CG is in a good location for recreation and relaxing. Interior roads are narrow and some turns are pretty tight but sites are good size and offer some privacy. We would gladly return when we are back in Washington State. Hopefully, the electrical situation will be taken care of soon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Thousand Trails CG. Rate is free to members. $5 for 50A. Limited sewer sites. No air TV. Poor Verizon data. Fair Verizon voice. Pool out of order. Tennis and pickleball. Frisbee Golf, miniature golf. Restaurant closed. Store has limited hours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We took advantage of our Thousand Trails membership, which meant we camped for free, during the weekend of the Icicle Festival in Leavenworth and are we glad we did! I had no problems making reservations only 48 hours out. The two foot of snow on the ground probably helped LOL but the staff really showed their dedication when 24 hours out they called to confirm our arrival and gave us driving tips i.e. come in on highway 2 then turn north before coming into Leavenworth to avoid having to go over two passes. Even en-route, staff called to make sure we were good to go and let us know our packet would be waiting for us on the board at the Ranger station. When we arrived we got our packet which had a hand written welcome in it and directions to the site. We were assigned site 93 but were told if we wanted we could get any site we could find. Due to the snow and the forecast for more the park was about 90% vacant if not more. Site 93 was a handicap site but based on reservations we were given it. It was located very close to the entrance and right next to the bathrooms in the Timber View area of the camp. The only problem was the placement of the 30 amp box but more in a bit. Getting our Jayco 29 QBH into the site was pretty easy and even for all the snow, it had been recently cleared, the site was pretty level. The water outlet for the site did not work even though it was thoroughly insulated which forced me to fill my fresh water tanks from and adjacent site, luckily my hose reached but still this was not a problem in the end. The park itself is HUGE!. With well over 300 sites dispersed in two or three areas. The winter environment was just spectacular and talking a walk in the mornings with a warm cup of Joe sure was peaceful. The bathrooms were extremely clean as were the showers. The family lodge was very very nice with a huge circular fire place that could have been lit if we wanted. The camp store was located in there but was closed. I was concerned because I saw a 30 amp extension cord which I was ready to buy because hooking up via the 110 outlet on the box was causing the circuit to trip. I located staff in the office above and asked if there was anyway possible for me to buy the cord. He said no problem and actually LENT us the cord! I tried to insist on paying for it but he would not let me. He only asked for me to clean it up and return it when we left. This was an extreme act of RV kindness and solidified our view of the park. Our two year old had a good time in the play room which even though is not a Chucky Cheese had enough to occupy him during our break from the snow. The downstairs of the Family lodge had two ping pong tables, a foosball, and air hockey game. The air hockey game took my .75 without giving up a puck but I think the activity center which was closed would have been the place to get that. Due to the weather I couldn't hook up my sewer line but did take advantage of the dump station without issue when we left. We want to make this an annual camping trip and will definitely come back. The customer service was top notch and the preserve is a good base camp for anything winter related and a good place to go and experience Leavenworth from. LOVED IT! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was understaffed during our stay. The club house had 2 ping pong tables and foosball, but you had to check out the equipment and it closed at 4:30 pm, so you could not use any of the club house games after 4:30 pm. The restrooms had only 1 shower. I found the washer and dryers expensive. We would not stay at this campground again. Compared to others, this campground was a big disappointment. The pool was even closed early and there was no hot tub at this site. We camped here in a Tent.
If all Thousand Trails were like this one, we would have no reason to complain. We felt like we were staying in a National Forest. Like most of the Thousand Trail preserves this one has been around for some time but it appears to have been maintained better than others we've been in. As a previous reviewer noted the name is misleading. The town of Leavenworth is at least 20 miles away but there is much to see and do even if you don't get to town. We would love to come back here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the better parks in the Thousand Trails system. Decent clubhouse, nice grounds, just facilities that need some updating like the rest of them. The pool however looks like it's either new or newly refurbished. It's big and has a nice patio surrounding it with lots of deck chairs and lounges. There are lots of nice sites in the park although some are a bit close together (typical of parks that were built before slideouts), but the park is usually only really busy on summer weekends. During the week it's about half full according to the ranger. Only 60 of 320 sites have sewer and only a few have 50 amp service. There are a couple of wineries in the area if you like wine tasting. Lake Wenatchee State Park is about 6-7 miles and is really pretty, although it is pretty crowded on summer weekends. Leavenworth is actually about 30-40 minutes away, so the park name is a bit deceptive. Leavenworth is a must-see, though. I'd definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Thousand Trails park located near Lake Wenatchee 15 miles from Leavenworth. Check routing in and come from the west side if you are in a RV. 60 full hook-ups, 260 power and water only, 4 day use sites - Rentals: 6 trailers, 4 motel rooms, 4 cottages, 4 cabins, 1 seven-bedroom Log House. Wi-Fi in the lodge only, good Verizon cell and air card signal. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit. Firewood for sale at the entrance. This is a very large park with forested trails and large grassy areas. It is more like camping in a state or national park than a private campground. Non-members can camp here under a introductory deal by calling Thousand Trails or checking their website. We were in a full hookup 30 amp site in Meadow View loop with good power, and nicely screened from neighbors by trees and vegetation. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Forest Service campground, which means, it's meant for the "outdoors experience" not for "comfort." The sites are a mixture of gravel and asphalt, may or may not be level. Mostly back in, with some pull-through. The sites are just where ever, no special arrangement, and each site has a fire pit and picnic table. The picnic tables have a special pad for you to place your camp stoves. Sites are rather close together at the entrance, a little more spacing (but not much) down near the river. No sewer dump, but you can dump for free at the rest stop six miles to the west on US Highway 2, or pay $5 and dump at the nearby state park. Camp Host said big rigs could get in here, but I am skeptical. I have a 32 foot and it was barely enough for me. Lots of trees with squirrels running around, my cat was entertained for hours. Good shade. The restrooms, which contained a plumbed toilet and sink (wow!), were fairly clean. Verizon Air Card worked very well. My "8" rating is for the "outdoor experience" and is not meant to imply the comforts of a fancy RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
