Didn't stay thanks to previous review about low branches. Went back to check it out. Branches much too low. We would not be able at enter or exit with a 34 ft. 5th wheel. Small, muddy circle of sites not inviting even if we could get in. Most sites occupied by what looked like longer term campers. Don't know cost, really. - Darleen

As others wrote, 1st come, 1st served and because utilities for adjoining sites are together, 1/2 the sites either have to "drive in" or pull utilities under the RV. Most sites reasonably level but some need some work. Yes, there were large rocks at what must have originally been sites, but the 19 spaces clearly have numbers. However, if you pulled in late, I could see that might be confusing (however after reading this, now you know). The staff was very friendly at the hotel where you check in and go to use the nice lounge chairs and/or tables for WiFi. We did get several TV stations by air. Some noise from highway, but cooler so did not open windows. Very convenient for Lewis & Clark things in Spalding and Lewiston. Only a few sites had picnic tables. - BandD

This is a very nice park. You definately want the pull-in sites along the river. We weren't able to get one but they have a terrific view. The park is neat and clean and the people are super friendly. Even though it is directly behind a Costco you do not hear the truck. The only two cons are the minimal cable stations - should have at least twice as many - and the unsecured wifi. We really liked this park and would recommend it. - Ruffella

This park is part of the small Premier Resorts chain. Our "pull in" site was right on the river with a pretty good view. All interior roads and sites are paved, and some have a concrete parking area for tow/toad vehicles. Interior roads are relatively narrow and involve tight turns and, on our visit, there were several areas of low hanging branches that will scratch your rig if you don't swing wide to avoid them (this seemed off because the park is generally well-maintained). Our angled site was very tight for a big bus to get into because of the close tree and utilities, and rigs/tow vehicles right across the narrow street. We were parked right up against a tree with our slide in the branches. They love their grass here, and over-watering caused it to be a soggy mess when we were there, so we couldn't really enjoy it. There was a large, wet, muddy area right near our door where a prior occupant had driven off the pavement while trying to maneuver; somebody just pulled the broken picnic table over the mess. Office staff was friendly, even when we went in to mention the muddy mess (and point out that it wasn't us). In spite of the trees, we had good DirecTV access. VZW was strong, Park Wi-Fi was very weak and slow, and Sprint was poor. We had some distant noise from trains that wasn't troubling. The Jet Boats doing tours on the river were much louder but limited to daytime hours. Power was good, as we had two A/Cs running 24/7 due to the heat (over 100 degrees). I would have rated this park higher is it wasn't for the over-watering and lack of tree maintenance. Tight I can work with, but not branches in the middle of my windshield on the interior roads. - RvTravelerNTechie

A really good place. We where here during the 4th holiday. So the place was filled and well used. Management did a great job of keeping everything thing clean and organized. You definitely want a water side site. - BillD-KimD

Park is occupied by mostly permanent residents so there are not a lot of overnight parking sites. We were given space #28, the last one available. Long pull-through on gravel with good power and water pressure. Very poor WiFi when I could connect which was only for a short time. They shouldn't even advertise that they have internet. Used our own MiFi device with a strong Verizon 4g signal. - StarlifterFE

We had a great stay here. Our trailer brakes needed work and the helpful hosts here recommended a repair shop just down the road. It was a terrific idea, The RV park has clean washrooms and showers, gravel sites separated by wooden rail fences. Our site had a neat green square of grass with room for the picnic table and some chairs. A cable box provided by the office is needed to hook to cable tv. We found basic channels on antenna. Access and check and were easy. I would stop here again. Phone ahead as maybe there are limited sites for transients. - Darleen

Since I last reviewed this park I'm gonna just give the pros and cons. We stayed a week.
Pros, very clean park, very convenient park to surrounding areas, very quiet park, laundry room very clean, rates are right in line I think is a good rate. The people staying here are either permanents or seasonal no problems.
Cons, I really can only think of one and it's not the fault of this park, but it seems to be the whole area. There is a distinct smell that when the wind changes that comes from the paper plant, that either is a propane gas or a methane gas or sewage all combined, but it is enough to make you stand at attention. This is my biggest complaint. You have no indication of when it's going to happen or what time, but it is definitely a stench you want forget and it could last up to hours. - monaco cruiser

Beautiful state park, love giving State and Fed my money for a nice place. Clean restrooms, Electric and H2O, fire ring. Right on the water, ever site is nice, wooded lots with grass. Travel in converted Sprinter van. - skihikefish

This is a beautiful campground on the Snake River near the confluence with the Clearwater River. The campsites are shaded and spacious. - Nothing But Blue Skies

Excellent campground and park! Miles and miles of hiking/walking/biking trails ranging from easy to difficult. Sites are huge, with lots of greenspace and trees. Fire ring and picnic table at each site. Day-use area has large beach area. Our site was slightly sloped toward the river, requiring us to use two leveling blocks under our front wheels to prevent them from dangling. No big deal. Sites are a mix of back-in and pull-through, with only a handful W/E/S sites. "Riverfront" sites are, in fact, closer to the river, but the views are largely blocked by foliage. No satellite coverage at our site, or most others, due to mature trees. All roads easy to navigate in a big rig. Jet boat tours of Hells Canyon leave directly from the adjoining marina - very convenient. An added bonus is the availability of free wifi and the neat little visitor center/museum. We would absolutely, positively return here. Beautiful park. - aircraftace

Very nice park with large grassy sites and concrete pads. But location is a problem. Between 2 busy highways so lots of road noise. Also some long term rentals have noisy dogs. - mikesylvia

This is a nice park and marina. The park is immaculate and the folks running it are as nice as you'll come across. Very nice indoor pool with clearly marked hours. Large lending library. We were in site #1 which is probably the best in the park for view. Absolutely no problems with this park. Not much for dog walking and would love to see them add some recycling. We did suffer sprinkler overspray on the grassy side of the coach every morning. Hard water and tough spots. Outside of their control are the busy streets encircling the park. I don't think there are any restrictions on the trucks using engine breaks as you hear them as the come off the bridge. Parking on the edges would no doubt be quite noisy. Without the noise I'd of rated this park even higher. - SHIPM8

This was one of our favorite places to visit on a trip through Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Utah. We really loved this park! I don't know why the other reviewer gave it 6/10, it's absolutely beautiful. I didn't see any algae in the lake, and there is a shortcut from the hook-ups campground to the lake. It's a short walk, cutting between the B & C loops (about a 200 foot walk). The fishing was amazing, with lots of bluegill and perch for the kids. I caught a 5 pound catfish, which was some work to bring in. We backed our 29' travel trailer and crew cab F-250 into our space without any problems, and it was fairly level.
There is a campground host in each of the three loops, and they sell firewood on site for $5/bundle. The store at the front entrance was nice also, with some apparel and some snacks for the kids. There are no sewer connections in the park, but the dump station is right outside the park, next to a convenience store (very easy to access and free). The store was very nice with lots of fishing gear, bait, snacks, drinks, etc.
The park sits at 3,900 feet, so it was very cool and comfortable in June. My wife says that Winchester Lake is her favorite park anywhere - and we've traveled about 9000 miles in our RV! I can't speak for maneuvering around in a 40' rig, as I've never owned one. However, we're about 40' long (truck and trailer) and had no problems getting into and out of the "B" loop. - Loki 1968

We barely fit into Site #1 with our 40' motorhome because of trees and large boulders at the edge. We would not recommend this park for RVs bigger than 35'. The roads are narrow and curvy to maneuver. We had a site with no hookups and that loop was at the lake. The upper loop had electric but was not lakeside. Unfortunately, the lake was full of algae but fish were being caught. Gas motors on boats are not allowed but ATVs riding throughout the campground are allowed which made for a very noisy Labor Day weekend. There are hiking trails and the lake setting is pretty. There is a free dump station approximately 1/2 mile from the park. The electric loop had clean flush toilets and showers but the dry camp area had vault toilets. There are a lot of day visitors fishing here. Because of the site situation for big rigs we would not return. - nbi600

Friendly staff! Lots of pine trees throughout the camp. Very clean restrooms and shower facility. Great fishing! Planning a another trip before the end of the season. Money well spent. - ZaZa

Very clean site and restrooms/showers. Site had grass and concrete slab with picnic table. Road noise from the highway can be loud at times which is why I gave a rating of 9. A short drive to Clarkston and Lewiston for shopping, restaurants. No issue with spiders as stated in other reviews. Friendly and helpful park staff. - Cascade4x4

In spite of previous hype about a spider invasion we opted to camp here for several days. Upon arrival we talked with the camp host and other campers present about the spiders. The camp host said there had been spiders along the waterfront during the extremely hot weather and that spray applications had been done. We saw a couple of very small spiders during our stay but certainly not a plethora of them as voiced in park reviews on other sites. We had a pleasant stay with no problems. - grandflic

Spent one night on return home from 2 weeks in the woods of Montana. We live about 125 miles from this park, felt it convenient for overnight after long drive.
Clean, great shade, water/elec/sewer all good. What we didn't like was paying a $3.50 reservation fee when we were "walk ups"!!!! Second night would be less, what a way to get more cash for a site. Also, not Corps of Engineers any longer!! No Senior discount!!! COE may own the property, but they have nothing to do with the operations.
Lots of day users on weekends, boating, fishing, swimming and sunning. Not a big problem except when they block the single lane entrance!!! - GLB

Easy to get in/out of US 12. Paved roads. Sites are spacious and some are pretty long. Not a lot of sites but they have full hook up but with only 30 amp. Utilities worked well including the 30 amp being a solid, consistent 30. Clean restroom, no showers. First-come-first-served site availability. Strong Verizon signal but slow. Host is very friendly and helpful. It was around 100 degrees during the day but as soon as the sun dropped down it cooled off very quickly. - cwier

Great place to stay. Hosts are the best we've witnessed in 8 years of traveling. The park has 30 amp only with water and sewer at each site. ATT did not work at all. There are just a few sites that will fit a 40' motorhome and toad. How anyone can find fault with this park is beyond me. If you need 50 amp service go elsewhere. It's wrong to mark down a park for something they say doesn't exist at the park. - illini777

This BLM run campground has 14 sites of which three are elevated tent sites. Only two pull thrus are available near the river side of the park. However, the back-in sites would easily accomodate our 28 ft fifth wheel trailer and pickup. The site hosts deserve a ten star for the park appearance and their welcoming and helpful manner. The full service facilities (sewer, water, and 30 AMP0 worked well and were well placed. If I placed my verizon mifi puck outside the trailer, verizon internet service was mostly satisfactory except during busy periods in the evening. My 3g Verizon based Tracfone showed no service. One boundary of the park is the Clearwater river which you can access via several foot paths. During our three night stay here, the park was never full. Even one of the pull thrus was available. The park is first come, first served so I would guess it is full to over flowing later in the summer. We will definitely return again. - Larry J

Very nice elks lodge RV place to park. You have six back ends that basically back up to the golf course but you're far enough away that I don't even think a terrible hacker golfer could hit your RV, so please don't let that be a deterrent for not visiting this lodge. Shared water, 30 amp plug-in and you are parked on grass . I only have one complaint and it seems to be my complaint on all these smaller parks that have multi use meaning not all our RVers, it's dust control you have a long driveway coming in and it amazes me the speed people can get up to knowing that all they have to do at the end of the driveway is parked their car, REALLY. I would say my recommendation to this would be get the site furthest away from the driveway which would be number one and that would help a little bit but overall this is a very very nice place to visit and I would definitely stay here again . - monaco cruiser

An Elk Member only site. Six back in sites on the edge of the golf course. A little unlevel and a swale to back over. When you look at it you'll wonder if your rig can back in and get out again. My 43' rig did fine. Caretaker advised he was "turning off utilities" at end of week for the winter. Lodge and golf clubhouse is up the hill from the RV parking area. DO NOT DRIVE UP THE HILL! Friendly check in. Quiet and peaceful at night. - Bucky Beaver
