10 Parks near Lewiston, Idaho
Oct 2016 - $25.00
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

Small Casino park...almost an afterthought for the casino, I thought. Spots were level, gravel and spaced acceptably. Went into Casino/hotel to register and told to come back after picking spot and setting up. Price reasonable for full hookup. Enough highway noise to bother me some but not enough to prevent sleep. - ebaldy

Great spaces in the A Loop. Lots of space and restrooms were conveniently located. Older foliage provides lots of shade in most sites.
Snake River is adjacent to this park and provides recreation opportunities. - grandflic

Rate shown includes both tax and $5/day car admittance fee, as it is a state park. For Idaho residents, you can deduct this cost if you have an annual pass to your parks. We should always show/share all taxes and fees to get an accurate picture of costs for visitors. We track the actual cost per night of each stay. As such, this park jumped into the top 15% costliest stay. The park is nice, great power, very well shaded, and reasonably quiet. Deer roamed the park Site was reasonably level although I did raise my front wheels on blocks and the jack logs, treated wood, were filled with earwigs when we prepared to leave. The trails are nice, a visitor center for the Lewis and Clark expedition is nearby, and you have convenient access to major stores in either Lewiston or Clarkston. The Verizon data signal was excellent - had some phone issues (on both phones) on one day only. We would stay here again. Be sure to look at the actual campground map as the Reserve America map site angles are not exactly representative - we try to get an east west site to reduce solar gain, and the actual park map is more representative. - cherib

This is a lovely park with large mature shade trees next to the Snake River. Sites were well separated with lots of grass. The grass needs lots of irrigation so be careful of what you leave outside. The staff was polite and asked us if it was ok to run the sprinklers next to the trailer. The temperatures were near 100 when we were there, but it was ok sitting under the trees, something I found amazing. - UTTransplant

The first thing you notice is GLRV is located next to a heavy-duty commercial park area with a Costco, Walmart,etc. Besides shopping, there's also numerous restaurants within walking distance, Roosters Waterfront, Smoke Shak BBQ, Subway; plus a brewery and a winery. (The office handed out a coupon for free wine tasting).
We had a pull-in (there's also back-in) W/E/S waterfront site with a concrete picnic-table pad and level, asphalt RV/car parking. High- season rate was $55 but GLRV gives 10% Good Sam, AAA, AARP etc discount. Although the sites are very close together, there was a narrow band with trees and well-watered grass between each one. We did not hear much street noise at night, except for an occasional barge going upriver. GLRV's landscaping, roadways, building facilities were all very well kept. The key-code locked restroom/shower and laundry rooms were sparkling clean. Note - the key-code doesn't work on the back (waterside) entrance's older lock, you need to go to the front entry where the newer locks work. WiFi and cable were free. Every morning the local newspaper was on our doorstep. No swimming pool or hot tub. A 16 mile asphalt walking/riding path is located between the waterfront sites and shoreline.
GLRV is at the junction of the Snake and Clearwater rivers, which being upstream from a dam makes the waterway very wide. We noticed numerous lights on water at night? In the morning we saw dozens of fishing boats hooking chinook salmon and flathead trout. Location is also close to Hell's Canyon jet-boat tour companies. Snake Dancer Tours will pick you up at the pier next to GLRV. - OTR-again

Had a water view pull in site with view of Snake River. Park is very well kept and maintained. Staff were all friendly and accommodating. Streets and sites are paved with space to park toad. All utilities worked well and properly located. Had a very relaxing stay, thank you for your hospitality. Would stay here again and highly recommend if in the area. - LarryB

Stayed in a waterfront site. Best site of the trip, right on the greenbelt. Pull-in site, tight roads, but maneuverable. Super Walmart and Costco convenient. Quiet at night because it is off the main road, unlike other parks in area. - TcaandK

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

Stay here each year for a month or so. We are in a bigger site that requires more $$. It is a well kept park with a good manager that has been here for over 11 years. Electric is great as is the water pressure. Most have good sites for satellite signals. Their free WiFi is ok most times but kicks you off if you stay on to long. We also have Verizon and it is 4 bars when needed.
Will stay here again next year also. - Bluebird Bob

My wife and I suggest that the person in the office who placed us needs to be more congenial as a host. RV travelers get the first sense of the park from that individual. The park was well kept with very good sites and likewise level concrete. There is a small dog area and fenced to allow off leash, but many of the longer tenants seemed to avoid the area. Our site was near a busy intersection and quite noisy since it had no foliage or barrier reducers. Additionally, the wifi was poor most of the time even though there was a tower close. The poor wifi was probably due to many units using it and not well boosted from the main office. Overall, it was a nice park but has a few concerns noted that will keep us from returning. - mrbob4370

The park is all paved with cement sites. The sites are wide and long. There are mostly pull troughs. The park is easy to move around with any size rig. The sites have hook-ups on both sides of the sites so you can choose which way you want to come into the site. The pool is indoor. The workers are nice and helpful. Highly recommend this park if you are in the area. - JDR

This is a great little park on the river. Concrete pads. Hook ups on both sides of the pad. Multiple sewer connections for different configurations. Nice picnic table. Great Verizon and satellite access. Friendly staff. Indoor pool and hot tub. Nice laundry facilities. Planned on an over night stay and add a day to enjoy the area and the facilities. - BobWW

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

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

Well, about the best things I can say about this park is that the folks at the other end of the phone at Parks and Recreation tried their utmost to make things work; and , there is a beautiful park with ball fields just across a small street that has a measured jogging path around it. Arrived and found someone parked in my spot but couldn't find owner so called the number on the welcome board (no attendant, self-service). Was offered another spot which proved an amenable solution, and actually spoke with my reserved site residents later who did not seem to concerned. Gravel/stone sites, nearly level; 30a power spot on at 120v; you definitely need a pressure reducer on the water spigot! Lots of antenna TV channels and Verizon worked pretty well. Property itself is in need of major tree trimming and weed/plant removal. Looks like it is an afterthought to the Parks and Rec maintenance building which forms the front of the property. Most issues would probably go away if there was a camp host on site. Would stay here again, if I had to, but would look for another option first. - pyrthkr

We enjoy this park. Next to WSU and downtown Pullman. Recently remodeled to accommodate our three slides. Basic gravel sites, level, utilities near the rear. Great for overnight or when visiting your WSU student. Playfields next to park. No amenities (other than hookups?) - SandyBBB

Very basic park: level gravel lot. It is the only choice with full hookups in the Moscow/Pullman area. I wouldn't return. There was trash on the ground beside our site. Not bad, just basic. - r1burden
