This is a Thousand Trails/KOA Park and we do not pay to stay here under TT. It is a clean park and very quiet. The water and sewer hookups are kind of strange but worked well. We had a back-in full hookup site. They have a nice clubhouse with a hot tub. They also served breakfast one of the days we were there. It is about 15 miles to the town of Newport. They have an excellent local museum that is worth a stop. We will stay here again and recommend it to others. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First of all, I didn't know what to put for the nightly rate. Part of the park is for KOA members, and the other part is for Thousand Trail members (that's us, and it's $3 a night). Anyway, despite the fact that there was no sewer hookups and no 50 amp service in the more downscale Thousand Trails section of the park, we really enjoyed our stay there. A severe storm passed through a few weeks prior, knocking over scores of huge trees throughout the resort. Many campsites were unusable because huge trees had fallen into them! A few trees even fell onto the roof of the lodge, but it was still standing and in use (we were told that the roof was leaking, however). It is a very peaceful setting, with lots of critters to keep you company. A mama deer and her babies, prairie dogs, squirrels, and chipmunks were constant companions. The nearby lake had a trail all around it (although the fallen tree damage extended to that as well, making it challenging in a few areas). Wi-Fi was very poor, even sitting right outside the place where it emanated from. The laundry room had several machines that were out of order, although they were fixing some of them when we were leaving. We enjoyed hiking through the huge campground. It is bigger than the active space count would lead you to believe, because huge swaths are inactive. You hike on the boundary road and feel that you are out in the middle of nowhere when you suddenly see old inactive power boxes sticking out of the ground. This campground either was huge at one time, or they overbuilt and never brought the whole thing up, but you can pretty much hike around until your feet fall off! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great campground. Sites were large and spread out. Water pressure was terrific. First campground we stayed in with an adult-only hot tub...yeah! Good public pool. Very friendly staff. One only Wi-Fi hotspot at the office, which is being upgraded to Digital Hi Speed with several locations in the next month. Lake access for boats and limited swimming. Most sites are water and electric only. We had a full service site. We stayed over the July 4th weekend, KOA had lots of events scheduled. One of the best we've stayed in. Definitely would stay here again for multiple days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great camping experience! Spent 4 nights. Close to the lake, we visited Spokane, Mount Spokane, and Kettle falls from here. Biked with our dog, walked all around the campground. Super friendly staff, they helped with restaurants and local sights. We had to leave early because of incoming weather and since we left before 11, they offered us a refund for that night. Super spot, would definitely recommend! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed in the Thousand Trails side of the park. Good Hot tub and Pool. Price reflects Thousand Trails member price. 4G Verizon data. Good Verizon voice. Fair air TV. Large park with very little usage. Gravel sites. No sewer in the park, but two dump stations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a site that was pretty large. We were able to put an 7 man tent on the top and a 3 man tent lower, the only complaint I have is that my ready camp go thru encore camping did not give me my discount and we had to camp thru KOA and they quoted me a price then when i got there i was charged 5 dollars extra for every person per night over 2 people. The campground itself was nice. Newport was close by so we used the Safeway there for anything extra we needed. I would camp there again but would try to rent a cabin next time. Tent camping is a lot of planning and work. But overall a nice place. The price per night is because of the amount of people we had in our party which was 5 and we had 2 cars. We camped here in a Tent.
We did not encounter any of the problems mentioned in other reviews. Staff was very friendly. We asked for and received a site with satellite access. Good AT&T. Wi-Fi was $1/day, which is very reasonable. Wash rigs for $4, which is very helpful. There could be more space between sites. I agree there is not too much going on in town but that is fine with us. We would come here again. Rate reflects Coast to Coast. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Electricity went off at 6:45 am. Reset the breaker at pedestal but still did not work. Called the office and got a recording. Drove to the office at 9:00 am, and found they don't open until 10:00 am. At 10:00, called office, still got the recording. Finally, at 10:20, called office and they said they would send someone. 30 minutes later, a lady showed up. I watched her trip the breaker on the main panel, it wobbled and was obviously worn out. Reset the panel breaker myself 3 times. Will not be coming back to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came here for the review we read and the pics we saw, very disappointed, the town has really nothing other then a Safeway and McDonalds, the river is a view from up top. We were told we would have one space and they put us in another with wasps catchers. Did not see this until we had backed in. The hot tub was broke and still broke two weeks later, we ended up staying here because, with km, you have to be out one week before going to another. No planned activities other the ice cream on Friday. No one overly friendly here. It'd for a night using anything other then km I would stay but don't waste your time for a week We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. 50 amp is available but only at backin sites, not pull-throughs. Sites were rutted and hard to level. Cable TV worked well. Older park, OK for a night on the road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Mixed feelings. Old park so sites are narrow. Some slideouts touch neighbors' awnings. River view was nice, but arm's length to next rig not so much. Dog walk is drive to river, which is chained. Was not about to drag kayak back and forth to river. Management very nice. Stayed as ROD. Will not stay again simply because the sites are too close for our comfort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a membership park, and, as members of the system, we were not charged a nightly fee. Wi-Fi is available, but not at all sites. I had to carry my laptop to the picnic table at the end of the road to get service. We have stayed here before and have always enjoyed this park. The staff is very friendly and the grounds clean and well maintained. Rest rooms are clean, though not very large. This park is at the edge of the city of Newport, so some stores and restaurants are within walking distance. We will stay there again this year and recommend it to anyone else who has access to it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great little park hidden along the Pend O'Reille River. The managers were very helpful, kind and friendly. The best spots are down on the river bank overlooking the Pend O'Reille. The morning sunrise is absolutely wonderful. Other sites in the park are on a hillside which gives everyone a different view of the surrounding area. This park is rather old and has gravel but with such a good crew working there you don't mind the dust. We will definitely stay again, hopefully for longer next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were here under Resorts of Distinction and thoroughly enjoyed the park and the area. Many sites have wooden decks with great views of the Pend Oreille River. Staff very friendly and helpful. We wanted to stay longer, but the holiday weekend prevented us doing so. We will stay here again when in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our stay here was on an ROD reservation. The only extra cost was for cable TV ($1 per day). This is a very nice park in a great setting. It is VERY convenient to both Newport, WA and Oldtown, ID. In fact, we think the state line ran through the center of our 5th wheel. McDonalds and a Safeway (with diesel fuel) were within walking distance from the park (only a few hundred feet). We were assigned site 4 about 30 feet above and overlooking the Pend Oreille (pronounced "ponderay") River with tall pine trees between our unit and the river. The campground has river front access with a boat launch and docks. We used an inflatable kayak in the river and had little trouble paddling up stream. The host was very nice and accommodating. Newport is centrally located for day trips to some very scenic areas in northeast Washington, northern Idaho and British Columbia, Canada. Don't miss Priest Lake and Coeur d'Alene Lake both in Idaho about 30 to 40 miles away. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park. Our space was up at the top in a bare "pie-shaped" area. With no other rigs near us it was great, but when full, the "pie-shaped" area had all the rig front ends almost touching and barely enough room to put down the awning. There are a lot of trees and access to a large river. We had some business in Spokane which is about an hour away. This park is OK for a short stay. We might stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An older, but nice campground. There is a River view from some sites. K&M, C2C, RPI, ROD etc park. The Wifi was weak at site, but we had good Verizon cell and air card reception. We had a 50 amp full hook up for $10 Resorts Park International rate. Sites are mostly back in, and a little tight. There is very nice staff in park. There is no noise from highway or town, and it is walking distance into town. It is a nice little town to check out. They have a hot tub, pot lucks and weekend breakfasts. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from RT 2 at the ID/WA border. The host was very helpful about the park and the area. The spots are narrow and most are back-in spots. Nice quiet park along river with no noise from highway or town. Some spots are on a hill away from river. WI-FI was poor. Our Dish and Verizon worked very well. They had a hot tub , pot lucks and weekend breakfasts. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
TTN rate. We spent July 4th here and the local fireworks displays were interesting. The park was packed, both sides of the road. The only real issue is the section we were able to locate a site. The utilities are so far out toward the road that two lengths of hose are required and a 30 AMP extension cord is required to reach 45 feet. One stanchion serves two sites, located in the middle and at the road but with several feet of brush and woods between sites. The 5 MPH limit doesn't mean much to most campers, and dust this time of the year is pretty bad. In this section only a few sites had anything that resembled a fire ring. No cell phone, Wi-Fi, no sewers (dump station) but all the resort buildings and activities were well done. This is a fairly remote location but a Safeway store is located in Newport. We will return when in the Spokane area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate for TTN. This CG could rate higher but lacks sewer and free Wi-Fi is terrible. Cell phones were near full strength but the Wi-Fi just didn't connect very well and oh so slow. The CG amenities were in excellent condition. This time of the year one can't avoid dusty conditions in CG's with gravel/dirt roads, but if all would observe the 5MPH limit it minimizes the dusty impact. Laundry, restrooms/showers, pool and lodges are clean, the staff friendly and helpful. There are fire rings in nearly every site. The staff pickup daily makes the rounds and collects garbage from the trash cans throughout the CG. Having to dump holding tanks on the way out of camp, or paying the pumper $25 each time, is not very convenient. This is a nice CG. Except for Newport about 8 miles, it is a very long way from most everything, but beautiful surroundings and peace and quiet are a huge plus. We have been here several times and will return when back through the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
TTN Platinum Plus member. Park divided into TTN and KOA sections. KOA sites are wider & cleaner and (as usual) TTN sites need maintenance (widening & weed control). Found a nice site (113) up on hill and could even get DISH TV through an opening in the trees. Amenities are good but far from camping. Played bingo, billiards, and used the pool/jacuzzi. Need an extra mid day "adult only" hour at pools. Lake and beach is disgusting and nothing more than a fishing hole. Yuk! Next time, we would try to check into public swimming at Diamond Lake just a few miles up the road. Took a day trip (about 45 miles) to San Point and enjoyed Lake Pend Orielle very much. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an odd park. Half of the park is a KOA and half is Thousand Trails. The entire park has no sewer. The TT portion has 30 amp and water but everything is old. The KOA portion has new electric boxes and water spigots. Typical of TT that they are not putting the money into the TT portion of the park. There is a nice lake and swimming pool. The staff were nice, but the store was not open the entire time we were there. We might stay there again, only due to the fact that we do not have to pay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a rather strange park. It has a public road running through it and it seems that it was much larger at some time in the past. Many of the old sites have been abandoned and are now unusable. Further, Thousand Trails franchised about half the remaining sites to KOA so the rangers are working for both, but they are all quite friendly and helpful. Most of the roads and many sites have been recently graveled and are in good condition. However, there are only water and 30amp electricity available in the TTN sites, no sewers. The Verizon cell phone and air card service is quite good and while there are many trees there are a number of sites that are satellite friendly. Little Diamond Lake is some 32 acres and has paddle boats available but we did not try them. There are many ball fields available and a very nice pool and spa. A real plus here is the quiet and solitude, there are no freeways, airports or trains to disturb you: makes for a relaxed stay. Since this is a TTN Preserve there is no charge for members, the KOA sites have their own set of charges. We camped here in a Motorhome.
