Registration was done at the golf shop and was quick since I had reserved. Our site was a grass back-in that had a low spot that made leveling tricky. If I backed up more to stay level then my hookups were too far away. They were more to the middle and front of the site. All utilities worked fine. There was just enough room to extend the slideout and awning. No table, but I probably could have asked for one since there were a few at nearby empty sites. There was no cable TV, but received 6 channels from OTA TV. Site was open enough for satellite. Wi-Fi was open and worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. The garbage dumpsters were a good walk away from most of the campsires. Next time in the area, I will try another park that has more site space. We camped at Smithers Par 3 and RV Park (formerly Riverside Golf Course & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Easy check-in, most sites lots of room and level. Good WiFi, over air TV. On a golf course, course was a little rough but could be because of the late winter. Close to town, quiet, popular. Would definitly stay there again. We camped at Smithers Par 3 and RV Park (formerly Riverside Golf Course & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campsite, excellent service at the front desk, below average par 3 golf course but for, $10.00 excellent value for your money, some highway noise. We stayed 2 nights. Lots of room for Big Rigs as the Fantasy Tour was here when we pulled in. We camped at Smithers Par 3 and RV Park (formerly Riverside Golf Course & RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

The campground was ok, good space for our unit and full hook ups. The views were great and it was very close to town. The golf course was fun and was greatly discounted for campers. The only two negatives were, there was a lot of junk lying around which looked ugly and was unsafe for children or pets. The other was that it was difficult to turn left out of the campground to go north. The campground staff were friendly and helpful and we would stay there again.

Registration is at the clubhouse. Our site was a grass back-in that took a bit of maneuvering to get level without the use of boards. I found it a bit strange that the pull-throughs were roomier, but only had electric and water. No cable TV, but found 3 different channels off the air. Wi-Fi worked fairly well, but was stretched at times to allow Skype calls. Fairly reasonable rates for the par 3 golf as RVers got a discount on the regular rate. Park is close to town so we would stay here again. We camped at Smithers Par 3 and RV Park (formerly Riverside Golf Course & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Take in the beautiful scenery surrounding the valley by driving some of the back roads. Twin Falls and Driftwood Canyon fossil beds are a couple of must see places.

Nice location in the trees by the river. They have both pull-through and back-in sites. They have common utilities for 2 sites which make it very difficult for every other back-in site. The roads are mainly dirt which was dusty while we were there. The Wi-Fi was very strong and fast. The PAR 3 golf was a quite challenging 18 hole course with the river adjacent to several holes. They also have a driving range. We would stay again. We camped at Smithers Par 3 and RV Park (formerly Riverside Golf Course & RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

I'd probably give this park an 8 or 9 if the bathrooms were better. The grounds are well maintained and attractive, but the bathrooms are a mess. They don't appear to be cleaned regularly, and when they are, they are cleaned half-heartedly. Even if they were clean, they are still pretty tired, so maybe the staff thinks it's not worth the effort. It amazes me what some RV parks will cobble together for a bathroom. Wi-Fi was fast, they charged an extra dollar at check-in to use it, although there is nothing stopping you from using it without paying the dollar, there is no key.

There could be a big problem with this park if there are many staying here, because the pull-through sites are designed for 2 RVs. Our site with the stairs out and no slide on that side, only had about 10 feet for the other site. There was good free Wi-Fi which reached much further than the previous review. As mentioned there is no sewer for the pull-through sites. The park has some nice big trees and grass but the inside roads had lots of pot holes. There is plenty of room for big rigs.

This is a nice park, with some reservations. There are a limited number of pull-throughs available and none with sewer connections. The sewer connections are all back-in sites. But the views are nice, the people are great to work with and most of the sites are easy to access. The Wi-Fi reaches only about 4 sites. When we stayed there they had a couple of parties of fishermen staying in tents and they tended to keep late hours around the campfire, resulting a certain amount of noise. But basically we like this park. We camped at Smithers Par 3 and RV Park (formerly Riverside Golf Course & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Not sure of rate, we were part of a caravan. Site number is approximate. Nice little muni campground with a par 3 golf course around it. Only big drawback is the side by side sites are very tight with 2 motorhomes parked at the same time. If you had one by yourself then you're in business.
