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

Hells Gate State Park and campground is a huge green oasis on the banks of the Snake River, just 4 miles south of downtown Lewiston, ID, and across the river from Clarkston, WA. Campsites have plenty of shade from the often-intense summer sun. Our site was a back-in, 55' deep site, with level, blacktop parking pad. Site at least 60' wide. E/W service provided, but no sewer hook-up. Tall trees for shade. Grassy site with plenty of room for a picnic or for kids to play. Paved bike path runs behind the site. Nice Snake River view to the rear. Campfire ring and picnic table provided. Verizon cell service 2 bars. Tall shade trees in many sites block southern shy views for satellite hook-up. Pros: Scenic location on the banks of the Snake River. Spacious sites. Attentive park staff. Well-maintained restroom and shower facilities. First-class state park visitor center. Access to on-site boat landing. Several nature trails to explore. Paved, 4-mile, bike path runs from CG, along the Snake River levee, to downtown Lewiston. Cons: Crowded CG most weekends from late May thru August. Expect day-long, high-pitched, engine noise from locals racing up and down the Snake River in high-powered watercraft. Recommendation: Great family-oriented state park and campground. Stay overnight or for several days, but, try to avoid weekend crowds. - Kona Boy

The state park is very nice - lots of shade trees and grass. The RV area was very quiet - all sites spaces well apart. All of the employees were very helpful and knowledgeable at the Discovery Center. Bicycle trails weave throughout the park. We would definitely stay here again. Plan at least a few days to see attractions in the area. - Lonestar44

This is a really nice park with lots of trees and plenty of half moon pull through. The sites are far apart and the roads are easy to maneuver for big rigs. Even saw deer walk through the loops two nights. - Gannonrv

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

We had reserved far in advance and had riverside slots. Very pleasant. The slots in the main part of the camp seemed to be very close to each other. If I could not get a river spot, I don't think I would stay here. The showers and restrooms were very clean, but it seemed pretty cheap that our code for the showers would not work on the morning we were checking out--so no shower before departure. That frosted me plenty. All in all, a nice enough place that has a great location, but I have very mixed feelings about returning. - idahoblue

Our third year staying here for a couple of months. Pretty popular park as Costco is right behind it. They keep the grounds very neat. The manager is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Our site (#18) is an end site that requires jacks and lifting the front end as the site slopes down. Quite a few long termers here but they can't rent the riverfront sites for the long term. Clean laundromat on site and reasonable price. Not a "Resort" as such. No pool or hot tub. Seems everybody can call themselves a resort nowadays. Sites fairly close together. Walmart a block away also. Wifi supplied is VERY slow. End up using our MiFi for speed. - Bluebird Bob

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

This is basically a trailer park with a proximally six spots throughout the park that are open for overnighters, three of them are right when you drive-in, one pull thru is by the office and there is a couple of backends somewhere. The park was quiet even though we were right by Highway 12. The price reflects a one-week stay +2 extra nights at Good Sam discount. There is a certain smell that comes through the park in fact the whole area either from the pulp plant or something that has almost a propane smell. We've stayed in the Lewiston Clarkston area and I've always stayed at the state park this time because of our size we had to get a RV park that accommodated our length. In all fairness to this park I would probably stay here again but I really did not feel like a part of this park because of our short-term stay and this happens sometimes when you pull into a more permanent full timers park. The laundry mat was clean and the office was accommodating. - monaco cruiser

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

Long, wide pull-through sites. We were given an end site with unobstructed view of the Snake River. Large concrete pad with hookups on both sides so that the RV can be parked facing either direction. Site was long enough to accommodate our 40' motorhome and toad. - Donny G

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

Beautiful park on an island in the Snake River. Full hook ups and no annoying cell phone coverage or TV signal. If you want a quiet peaceful place to camp this is it. Staff was wonderful and stopped by multiple times just to visit and asked if there was anything they could do for us. Grounds and restrooms were perfectly clean and well groomed. They do water on certain days and the park workers come by to remind you and check to see that nothing will get wet. After dark the bugs do come out, but thats to be expected camping near the water. We can't wait to make it back here to camp again. - User3213

We enjoyed our stay at Chief Timothy. The park was clean, had a very friendly manager, lots of green lawns and adequate privacy between the many pull through spaces. There are lots of trees and shade. The park is not modern or fancy but has full hook ups, paved roads and sites, as well as plenty of room for most rigs. There is no Wi-Fi and we could not get a 3G connection either. The park is located in a canyon like area so when vehicles travel by on the highway the noise can be annoying because it deflects off the canyon wall. When there is no traffic it is a very quiet and peaceful place. But again we were there in the off season and nearly had the place to ourselves. The manager said they get very busy during the peak season times so keep that in mind. We would come back. - ChrisO83

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

This state park, in the southeast corner of Washington, is a lovely spot to get away from it all. There is hiking, wildlife watching, and nearby access to both the Grande Ronde River and the Snake River. The campsites are very private and secluded, but there are also facilities available for rent to large parties. - ravens3

I liked staying here because the location is so convenient. It is very close to town and the Safeway and a few restaurants are right across the street. The park is very busy with kids playing during the day, which was nice. The full hook-up sites are extremely close to each other, but are nice and grassy. There is also the option of just electric over in the parking lot for $15 or you can boondock for free. There were some folks over in the park last night yelling at each other, but that only lasted about 10 minutes. - Rayne

This is not really a RV park, it is just 6 spots on someones property where they stuck some electricity. The spots are right next to the highway among some fruit trees next to a truck company. There is only one spot that can be used by a large or medium rig, one site for a small rig and the others more for a camper truck set up. Trees have grown over into the sites so you have to be real careful. There is no water, sewer, bathroom, or shower. You have 30 amp electricity. They do have a trash barrel. The spot worked for us for the night, it beat Wal-Mart. There isn't much in Pullman and Moscow for a big rig. The owner was very nice. - Chis

The fairgrounds operates this small RV park, which offers full hookups, with 30 amp service. It has level side by side concrete pads surrounded by a tiny patch of grass. It is next to Lions Club Park, which gets heavy day usage. As the camping spots are between the parking lot and city park there will be lots of walking traffic, balls bouncing, moms yelling "don't hit the trailer etc. With a playground, field, and lots of kids around it would be a good camping spot for a family. There is a Safeway supermarket across the street from the campground and a dump station on the property. Restrooms are portal-potties. Between the park, and closeness of sites there is not much privacy for campers. The park seems to be a late night party spot for teenagers. On the first two nights I was here there was lots of shouting and yelling from the teens between midnight and 2am and vehicles driving through the fairgrounds property. I can now appreciate. - Traveling man
