The bad part first, my poor rating is for the horrible road conditions in the campground and the very, very tight RV parking pads in the campsites. We are a 30' long motorhome and a lot of the "B" campsites are much too small for us. Very few of the "A" campsites are large enough for a 40 footer and very tight for 35 foot RVs. "B" sites are for under 30' and "A" sites are for over 30'. About the reservation fee mentioned in the 2015 reviews, I made 3 separate "online" campground reservations in early June and was not charged a reservation fee. Perhaps there is a charge for phone reservations but not for online reservations. There is pretty good separation between campsites for privacy. However, when I compare this campground to staying in one of the RV parks where all I see out my windows is the RV crammed in next to me, this campground is great! I would stay here over an RV park anytime. We spent 7 nights here. The $11 rate is for the 1/2 off senior pass. Regular rates are $22 for "B" sites & $28 for "A" sites. We camped at Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Reservations were challenging. It took the staff 4 times to finally get our reservation correct using all three methods (online, phone, in person). Staff was not friendly and did not provide information. Berry picking options from campsite. Relatively quite. Generator hours: 8-10 am and 4-8 pm. $4 for showers (includes towel). Laundry facilities are available. Small store is located on site. The 1st and 3rd loop contain more large RV sites. Numerous level sites available. Three dumps stations are available. Four potable water hoses are available. Expect un-experienced sani station Class C users. The free shuttle bus stops at the campground. Pit and flush toilets available. We would not stay here again. We camped at Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

It seems the park has raised fees a lot since last year. We paid $28 to stay here, plus $4.00 for showers. The camp provides few services: laundry, Wi-Fi at the store (not at sites), showers for a fee. The camp was nice, but too expensive. We camped at Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
