$32 rate includes $7 extra vehicle fee. Our site was heavily shaded and did require some tree trimming prior to our back-in. We were in an interior site and they were pretty close together. The pull throughs, while having no shade would have been nicer with our big rig and offered more privacy. The back-ins around the perimeter were of various lengths but offered nice separation between sites. The park is nice and if we were able to reserve one of the pull throughs we would happily stay here again. Our Verizon did not even think about working, not sure if it was the location or the trees. We camped at Richardson Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here several times in the past and have been happy with the park and the staff. During this stay - which is admittedly early in the season - the park didn't seem to be ready. There was a tree down, a couple campsites were closed, porta-potties were set up while restrooms in the day-use area are supposedly undergoing maintenance and the dump station was closed. I would have given an even lower rating but the camp hosts were excellent. The nightly rate did not include the $10 reservation fee. We camped at Richardson Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is big rig friendly. Interior roads are paved, with asphalt sites. Sites have water and electric. There is a dump station. While we loved the park, we work, so needed internet service. We rode through the park and found a site where we could connect to Verizon, but the service was slow and spotty. Cell service was spotty as well. The park is wooded and the sites are nicely spaced. There are both pull-throughs and back-ins, with some being more level than others. Restrooms/showers appeared clean, but we did not use them. There's plenty of space to walk pets. The camp hosts were helpful and friendly upon arrival. We would return if passing through the area on a weekend, but not during the week, unless the Verizon service improves or we select another carrier. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this well kept campground each of the last two years. There is also a day use area and a marina adjacent to the campground. The sites are level and a mix of pull-through and back-in. Staff is friendly and helped us stay an extra night. Would rate it higher but the men's restroom had plumbing problems during the entire four days of our stay. Water and electric are on a single pedestal near the rear of the sites. We will stay here again. The park is closer to Elmira (4 miles away) than Junction City (12 miles away). We camped at Richardson Park in a Travel Trailer.

Paved roads and paved campsites, some back ins and some pull throughs. Reservation website is good, even shows pictures of the sites. Most sites are $25, we had a pull through with view of the lake so considered premium. Water/electric only with dump station. Some sites are sloped, take leveling blocks/boards. Showers are 50 cents for a few minutes. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Richardson Park and Campground. Our site (#77), was nestled in the pines and absolutely gorgeous with a view to the open clearing behind us. The site was level and paved. There are great showers and restrooms. The showers are 50 cents for 5 minutes. There is a marina and a boat launch, an outdoor movie on Friday and Saturdays, and plenty of places for bike rides. Our phones didn’t work there, but our air card worked fine. All of the spaces are very different and wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would certainly return! We camped at Richardson Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here several nights while visiting relatives. Nicely treed park. Huge, clean showers in individual units (have quarters handy). Efficient website for online reservations. We will stay here again. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet park when we were there in late April. The campground hosts were great and made sure we had everything we needed. The RV dump is out of order for an unspecified period of time so they gave us directions to a free dump within 10 miles of the campground. The sites are mostly wooded but some towards the host sites are in a meadow. Out site was a pull-thru on a hill so it took a little leveling. There is a trail to the marina and a nice paved walking trail around the lake to the day use park. Great place to stay if coming from or going to the coast or needing to visit Junction City/Eugene/Corvallis. We camped at Richardson Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very basic, just a bunch of slabs with hook ups. Clean but I wouldn't stay again unless there was no other choice. Stayed while RV was being worked on at Guaranty. Dog friendly. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.

This is a good park for big rigs. Our 40' motorhome could fit in almost all sites. Some of the back in sites were in deep shade. Most of the pull-throughs were in sun or partial. If you don't utilize the lake by having a boat or fishing, there isn't anything to do here. There are no trails. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.

We are used to dry camping in state parks, so it felt like a real luxury to have water and electric. But the real bonus was our site (#12)--eastward view of the lake, so we got to see the sun rise over it. A little path from our campsite led us right to the lake. Sites are well separated by foliage and space, so we felt as if we had the park to ourselves (which we did, camping mid-week in early spring). Park management was pretty disorganized, but we got our reservation squared away eventually. The Park also offers recycling. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.

Rate was $20 per night PLUS $10 reservation fee, making nightly cost for 4 nights $22.50 -- a bit high for just water & electric. Also noted that our "50A" hookup actually had 30A breakers, meaning it was actually a 30A 240v rather than 50a 240v as would be normal. The park was quite nice and peaceful, even with Labor Day Weekend crowd. It is VERY dark here at night!!! We might stay again if in the area. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.

We had a wonderful site (A37), a pull through with a huge area that included a fire pit and picnic table. We were in the open so satellite reception was good. The majority of the sites in this park are in the trees and would have no TV reception. The park website does identify which sites are in the open. Our site was level, but many others were not. It is a short walk to Fern Ridge Lake from the campground. We would come here again. We camped at Richardson Park in a Motorhome.
