This is a nice park where site selection makes it average or well above. We'd been here before, so selected a long pull thru site (21) across from the office. This gave us an unobstructed view of the river, large area with landscaping, and a table. The host is a sweet lady who stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed. No train noise while we were there, and not much interior traffic. WiFi and cable were good, and Verizon cell/4G worked well. No obstructions to the TV satellites. Access requires driving through the hardware store parking lot and across uneven railroad tracks with a short dusty section, but take it slow and it's no problem. We'll stay here again. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

Don't be put off by entry. You cross a seldom used RR siding track that is a little rough and then enter a park that appears to be almost brand new. Most spaces backup to and overlook the Clearwater River. Sites are blacktop, new and level. Water pressure is excellent. WiFi very good. The manager very nice and helpful, (likes to talk). $5.00 to wash your rig and toad. In short a very nice park. Good phone reception on Verizon. One of the nicer stopover parks going west from Missoula on Highway 12. Water pressure rated at 80 lbs so use a reducer. Note: Never heard a train over the two days we were here. A pleasant two day rest stop. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

The site was clean and close to the river. The sites are located pretty close together. Marge (camp host) was really nice, but was never in the office. We finally went to her camper and asked for what we needed. The bathrooms were really nice as well as the showers. The women's bathroom had a strong mildew odor. According to the men in my family, the men's bathroom didn't smell at all. It was a beautiful view, and the train behind only comes a couple of times a week and so we never heard it. If you are staying for the night and going somewhere else, it was very nice. If you want to camp go somewhere else. Biggest disappointment was that there were no fire pits. Even though, on their page it claims to. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

All sites are on the river. ( site 16) There are several "residents" that are on both ends of the park; was told they work at the lumber mill. At times you also feel like you are on a Main Street since there is a business at the end of the park. Several utility vehicles and front loaders going thru, but surprisingly the park was very quiet. We had a reservation for a week and at check in we're told there was a $1.50 daily fee for cable- didn't argue it. Came in handy on the two rainy days. Park host is great and lives on site. Showers were clean, handicap accessible and had a door that locked for privacy. Very nice. Laundry- washer $1.50/dryer $1.00. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were here several years ago and stayed here one weeknight at the end of July on this trip. We had one of the horizontal, FHU, pull-through sites 20' from the river. Our site was level, gravel, and had 50 channel cable TV. The 802.11 network was fine in the RV - possibly because the park was less than half full. Some of the 20 or so customers may have been extended stay. It is an easy walk into the center of town but a little less so on the day of our visit - it was over 100F. I was tempted to wade in the river and probably would have if I were 20 years younger and more sure footed. Orofino is a small town on the Clearwater River situated between sloping tree covered sloped hills - very scenic. The bathrooms and laundry are OK. I saw no sign of any recycling. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

A great find. Excellent riverfront spots right on the water's edge. Nicely spaced spot, paved with patios. Very clean and well maintained. Walk to restaurants and shops. Friendly and accommodating management. We'll definitely be back! We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsites are mostly along the river, some with trees. Level and good utilities. Wi-Fi worked but slow. Would stay here again. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

Seems OK, until you spend a few nights. My preferred place in Clarkston, WA was full, so I stopped here. Facility situated along river shoreline next to railroad & industrial area near town. (No RR traffic- just a siding.) Facilities are recently developed - modern & tidy. A week here (even with highway traffic reduced by constant rain) exposed downsides- US Hwy 12 plenty non-stop local/regional and commercial traffic, just across the river; local airport straight-away from RV park, with landing/takeoff pattern over the property. Then, there are the helicopters. Plenty spaces open for rent, and a fews days' visit explain why cosmetics don't cover everything. Manager is very nice; intermittent maintenance on restrooms/laundry; all in/out traffic goes single-file past RV spaces, varying by locals' work & family schedule; reasonable rates.

Great stay at this park. Sites are big and almost all sites are right next to the water. 50 amp full hook ups are very good, Wi-Fi and cell service very good, satelite works good. Not a lot of places to walk pets but there are some small grassy areas. Restrooms, showers and laundry rooms are spotless and brand new looking. Entrance to the park is a little tricky, you have to turn into the parking lot of a hardware store, drive over some railroad tracks and then a hard right into the park. Manager was a very nice lady and eager to make our stay perfect. We will stay here again. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

Almost all the spaces lie right along the river and make the most of the view. It is well kept and very clean. The manager is extremely friendly and helpful. It is a little hard to find and one must cross a railroad track to enter. Just take the first left on Riverfront Rd. (through the Orofino Builders Supply parking lot) and follow the signs. One train at 2 pm on one day during our 3 day stay. There are rail cars parked along the siding, but they are above the park and not really bothersome. Very close to town. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The setting of this park is unbelievable. You are right on the Clearwater River in Orofino. Forty- three of the forty-nine sites are right on the river. The back in spaces are rock and our's was perfectly level. They have five pull-throughs that are on blacktop. Interior roads are blacktop. Marge in the office is a sweetheart, even changed our site for us to make it better for us, and I didn't even ask. The showers were a "10" as was the laundry room. No pool or other ammenties, other wise this would be "9+". I don't give many "10"'s. To me, the surroundings of a park are not really that important. Yes, there are some railcars near the park, but so what. On the opposite side you have a beautiful river and evergreen trees. The noise on Highway 12 is kind of loud during the day, but at night it really quites down. When we were here there WAS river traffic. Fishermen running their boats both directions at high rates of speed. It is kind of rough getting into the park, but if you go slowly, so what. I don't care what I have to go through to get into the park, it is what it is like when I am there that counts. The rate shown is river-front back-in with Good Sam. The trains go by about 2-3 times a MONTH, so I guess we lucked out in our three days here, none came by. We would come back here in a heart beat.

Nice new park. Asphalt roads, level gravel sites with nice picnic tables. The bathrooms and showers were about the nicest I have ever seen and we were full-timers. Most sites line up right on the Clearwater river. The sound of the river all night was a plus. The sound of highway traffic across the river wasn't. Hookups were solid. Wi-Fi was good -- solid but slow which is typical of most RV parks. The park itself is a 10. Unfortunately, there are no amenities and the entrance to it is over rough railroad tracks and thru a seedy industrial area. Unless you are a steelhead fisherman, there isn't much to do in Orofino either. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Truck Camper.

The owners took a narrow wedge of land between the railroad track and the river, and converted it to an RV park in 2006. The RV park is only 100 feet wide and 200 yards long. The PRO's are the road inside the park is new, the showers/laundry are spotless, the river view is great. The manageress,is a sweetheart. The Con's are, the site is built on the entrance road to the City Works Dept, and the access road for all that traffic runs through the park, within feet of the RVs, commencing at 7 AM SEVEN DAYS A WEEK! There is considerable road noise from highway 12 which runs on the other side of the river. The rail cars are an eyesore, and are only 50+ feet from your RV, and on the days that the train comes in, which is not too often, it arrives at 6 AM blasting it's horn yards from your RV. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a relatively new park. Roads are asphalt in very good condition. Sites have concrete pads and tables in very good condition. The view of the river (almost all sites are waterfront) is great but was surprised that there was no river traffic. Electricity, Wi-Fi, and water pressure were strong and consistent. The only thing that keeps this from being a 10 is the location. You are between the river and some railroad tracks (with numerous RR cars parked there) and the road across the river that has heavy truck traffic. The noise from the road is rather loud at times. The other issue is the entrance to the park. You have to go over some very rough RR tracks and through an industrial type area. But the minuses are far outweighed by the positives. This is a very, very good stop over or place to spend a few days. There are other campgrounds in the area, but from from our viewpoint this is clearly the best. We would definitely stay here again. Did I mention that the manager was super and went out of her way to help us and made several very good suggestions as to where to go and what to see? We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good WiFi and cable TV. Has a great location right on the river, I mean, right on the river. Be careful backing up. This park is good for an overnight stop. We would come back again. We camped at Clearwater Crossing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
