This is a wonderful quiet park. The area surrounding the park is amazing. You are close to many things to do. The manager lives on site and it's easy to get information or problems fixed right away. This is a very friendly place to stay. The Wifi was just newly installed and has a very strong signal. There is a very inexpensive laundry facility onsite as well as showers and bathrooms. - Laura58will

Yes majority were permanent residents. Their sites clean and well maintained. It is an older park but clean and well maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights and would stay again. We have a 31 ft motorhome with 2 slideouts. Site was fairly level and full hook-ups good. - Foucek

Very friendly staff and large pull-thru sites with full hookups. Office wasn't open when we first arrived, but instructions were clear and had no trouble finding an open site. Some permanent residents which was not a problem. Hookups worked well and were well placed. Will probably come again. - frmOregon

We found this park in a snow storm at night. It's a short distance from 97 but noise is no problem. Unfortunately the problem arose when we turned in and soon realized there was no way we could turn around due to the deep knee high snow. We pushed on into the RV park itself where maybe 10-12 fairly permanent RV's are. We couldn't stop so continued and thought we'd turned back onto the exit road but got stuck.
Luckily we could back up enough to connect to a power outlet and as it was a Saturday we had to stay put till Monday when the office opened before we could get help to get out.
After dealing with more snow and freezing rain over the next day I was able to connect with a man who kindly sent out a plow to dig us a path. Several tries and we were free. Thank you!
I'm sure it'd be a nice place during the summer but it would be nice if the they sent a plow through more often during snow events or also had an emergency number during weekends. - Grums

Rate reflects 30-amp weekly rate. Nearly level, well-gravelled, wide lanes, fenced-in and relatively quiet. Each site has a pedestal grill and small Juniper tree. Largest pet area I've ever seen. Excellent for overnight or base camp. Six pull-through sites, all 50 amp with maybe a dozen more 50-amp back-ins. Scores of 30-amp back-in sites that are "end to end" meaning that if the other end is vacant, you have a pull-through, at least until someone wants the other end. - Old Mountain Man

Price reflects the Good Sam discount and the 30 amp service. The sites were gravel and level. Each site had a raised hibachi and small trees. There were mostly pull-throughs and some back-ins. We had lots of room to move around our 43’ rig. This park is a good value for the price. We would come back again. - Lollyp

This park caters to monthly & seasonal guests. Its a shame they occupy the prime spots in the park. Many sites are very tight, and grouped very close to each other.
A big rig was parked next to me, and was 10 ft over into my site.
They also had my picnic table.
Advertises free Wi-Fi...but only for 30 minutess, then you pay.
They must not have a leash rule, as dogs were running off leash 24/7.
They have golf carts that guests can use, which is a nice touch, but good luck, as every time I went to use it, it was gone.
I will not be returning. - Mystang

Found this gem quite by accident, and we're so glad we did. Peaceful, clean, and well kept. Owners friendly and staff were welcoming. Cannot say enough about this park. Still an A +. - Kevin Schitoskey

Bring your boat as there is a boat launching site and docking facilities. One of the more picturesque RV camps we have been to on this trip and we had the whole place to ourselves. Office people were very accommodating and let us go down to pick our own site. They also offer free golf carts to be used to travel up and down the park's steep roads. Most sites are shaded, with full hookups although not sure about 'big rigs' with some of the tight turns to get down to the lower level on the Simtustus lake/reservoir. Talked to a couple fisherman and they were catching trout and other fish pretty regularly. Upper level sites have great views of the water and mountains if you just want to relax in a lounge chair. Bathrooms/showers were modern and clean. They have a floating dock for swimming in the very clear water. No tenting allowed. We will be sure to include visiting this camp in our next trip to Oregon. - Drgnfli

We stayed here during the recent eclipse and had a great time. The park was clean and well cared for despite a hard scrabble high desert vibe. Our site had electric only but amazing lake front access. Sites are level-ish and the entire campground is a bit rugged but the remote location and beautiful canyon make this a worthwhile destination. The access road is winding and large rigs may have some challenges. Park staff was accommodating and polite. The small marina that is adjacent to the park has boat and pontoon rentals as well as ice and a few staples for sale. There is no cell service here or wifi. - Janet H

I am revising my previous review on this campground. We have stayed at this campgorund for years, never having any problems until our last visit. Reason~ The Hosts! They were rude, and lacked people skills. We had hooked up to a water stand pipe, as we have always done in the past. They told us we couldnt do that, *its not a full hook up site*. I tried to nicely explain, we had been using the park for years & no one complained, then I asked if this was a new rule. No he screamed, its always been that way. The rest of our stay was untolerable. We wont be returning until these hosts have left, as I understand they are still with the park. - Mystang

Loops A and C include almost entirely full hookup sites, which is a bargain for the price. The best and worst things about this campground is the drive in. It is 4 miles down the canyon on a road with no guard rails and over a bridge, however, the view as you go down into the canyon and view the reservoir is incredible! However, the distance and steep drive means you cannot run out to a store if you forget something. Campground roads are good, and sites are paved, but when it is crowded, you might have trouble with a very large rig, especially with a toad. Also, the camping pads are too narrow to the point where you step out onto dirt instead of asphalt--another two feet in width would have kept you out of the dirt. Another negative is that the campground is nowhere near the reservoir, so you really need to drive and have a boat or something for swimming. I did not see a beach, although they may have one I did not find. Also, no cell service or data through Verizon available and few spots will allow satellite signals. Price includes $8 reservation fee split between two nights. - judy_online

This is one of our favorite places to come. We've stayed in both A and C loop and had a terrific time! The staff is super friendly and the spaces are perfect for our size travel trailer. We do not have a boat but we rented at Cove Palisades Resort & Marina - Very affordable and perfect for getting out into deeper water for fishing. Everyone is super awesome and friendly showing how to use the boat features, goes over safety, provides life jackets, etc... The facilities are really clean and we love the little mini 'store' at the entrance gate. We've often forgot something - and they have had ice cream which is awesome on the hot summer days! - WereGoingCamping

Beautiful park in the middle of the desert. The C loop has terraced RV spaces. The bathrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen at an Oregon State campground. (And they are all very good!)
The Deschutes campground has full hookups (some others do not), which was nice for a 3-day stay. If you're into fishing, a fish-cleaning house is available on site. Very nice campground, I'd visit again! - NotSoPro

Even though we weren't boating as many people do here, we really enjoyed this campground during our first ever two-night stay. We found the the sites to be fairly spacious and the grounds well maintained. The bathrooms and private showers are some of the best we've ever seen. As the Crooked River campground is on a plateau, lake access is via several day use areas 1/2 mile away. We also visited the Deschutes Campground which was also nice - a little more undulating with boulders and trees everywhere but perhaps the sites were smaller overall. Another camper told us that the Deschutes campground (a couple of miles away) can get hotter in the summer evenings as you get less of an evening breeze. There is also a very nice private marina/store near the day use area for boat rental, provisions and ice cream, etc. My only minor gripe is that the dumpsters aren't really within walking distance. - the5reeds

The campground is in an oasis of tall trees and green grass on a flat area of otherwise high desert. It is high above Lake Billy Chinook. You can't see the lake from the campground. It's easy to walk to the campground entrance and go down Jordan Road a very short distance to see views of the lake and a small waterfall. If you get out of the trees on the western side of the campground you'll have great views of Three Fingered Jack and Mount Jefferson. There isn't much of a trail system which would have been nice. There is grand scenery all around you. The park has plenty of space between sites more than we've seen at other Oregon State Parks. There is a lot of open space at ground level so visual privacy screening is minimal. Sites 12, 41, and 47 are some we'd recommend. - Neil and JoAnn

A nice state park, easy access for large RV's.
Really enjoyed our stay here, weekends were busy but during the week I think we were one of 8-10 rigs in this campground that probably had 70 or so sites, and 4 of those were occupied by the work campers. Very quiet during the week, we had a row of 15 empty sites to ourselves.
Good Verizon connectivity, AT&T was okay with a booster.
Beautiful views of the Cascade Range and the rivers in the area.
thankful for 50 AMP W/E hookup as we had a few days in the high 90's.
Had to do a bit tree trimming to be able to open our slides.
We've stayed at OR state parks before and find them to be much more big rig friendly than either WA or CA and much more affordable than their neighboring states. - DRFink

We rented an RV spot from Madras/Culver KOA. We have a toy hauler with our quads and dirt bikes parked in front and our Raptor parked in front of that. We set up a wire fence around our campground on posts to keep our two Australia Sheppard off-leash but constrained. We are regularly complimented on this tactic and were complimented at this campground also. 24 hours into our stay ...the manager/hostess came by telling us to take the fence down. First stating that "people complained", then changed to "people might complain", then stated that "if it was a fence purchased at petco it would be ok but this looks ....", and finally said that "any bad reviews would kill her and we need to take it down" Also the campground is like a parking lot, no seclusion at all. One whole lane of trailer spots are residence of which is not the most comforting appearance of safety. The pool is rather dirty, upon my kids first usage they found a dyeing bird in the water and had to get the staff to come and rescue it. The bathrooms were closed for cleaning for about 2 hours and were still not very clean. One of the mens showers was not working. The store/office staff gentleman was great with the kids and checking us in. Although we were asked not to put any tents on the grass as it has been hard to keep it green this year but there are tents all over the grass and it is not at all green. - Tas0823

We stayed in a small travel trailer and a tent. The restrooms were very dirty and appeared to not be cleaned the 2 days we camped here. In the men's restroom, only 1 of 3 toilets were working. The women's restroom had slime in the showers and very dirty floors. - Yepp

This is a smallish KOA as KOA's go and as such, suited us better than a lot of the larger, busier ones we've visited. We visited for 5 nights over the eclipse. When I first called for a reservation a full 12 months out, was told we could have a site for our first several days, but on the day of the eclipse (Aug 21) had to move to an overflow area since they were booked. Then just before Oregon was going to open up sites at Cove Palisades, she called me with a cancellation and that we could have a site for our full 5 days without moving. I thought that she went above and beyond to make it work. Beyond the excellent customer service, we found the sites ample, shaded for the most part, and level. We would definitely come back again. - GilesScott

We stayed during the eclipse and it was very busy! The hosts we're excellent and worked hard not only to get as many campers into the campground but keep it clean and orderly. The lake is lovely to look at but was a quite green with algae and we worried for our dog. The campground is on a hill so some of the sites are not level but sites 14, 17, 18 and 22 were quite level and plenty long enough for our 40' MH and car. The only water is in a pull through area and easy for big rigs to get into. The bathrooms are vualts and are kept clean and we'll supplied but still smell like vualts. We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back. - rhianna

East campground known as "Haystack" is very nice, but only one water spigot. Dump station in town of Culver. 2.5 miles away. Group campgrounds had no water but otherwise were adequately equipped and clean with exception of broken glass everywhere. - Doug Toye

Rest rooms clean, but it was hot and the humidity was high so showered in RV, long walk from RV. Wasn't able to get WiFi connection. I think comment Pool with RV park is apt decription. Would recommend for family who want resort activities. Out of the way and overpriced IMO for an overnight stay. Registration, not given accurate info on check in and check out. Played at golf course, would recommend. - Retired Rvers2

This has to one of the worst RV Parks we have ever visited! Shame on you for not reporting that the park was nearly 25 miles off a highway down narrow, steep, winding roadways. In no way is this park worth $70.00 per night. Maybe the tee-pees would have been fun, but the RV park was terrible. Most of the workers were very unfriendly, except for the girls that checked us in, who were pretty much without a clue. STAY AWAY!!

Pulled into the RV park area....following the signs. There was a sign saying registration booth closed, register at the lodge. No indication of where the "lodge" is. Had to pound on the door of the spa to get someone to help us. She said since it is off season, Sept 28, nothing was open in the RV area, no water slides, no gift shop, nothing but the spa. Luckily the shuttle driver came thru and we were able to unhook our car and follow her to the lodge, 1/4 mile away. The registration gal knew nothing about the Rv park, and encouraged us to choose a site with a river view.....problem is the "view" is blocked by a
15ft high berm. She asked for our credit card for the rest of the charges...when I asked what charges because I had paid in advance, she stated that was just for the first night and the fee was $70 a night. I was not informed of that on the phone and had assumed the 69.88 chg was for 2 night since it was "off season". We decided to stay one night only and will not return. They are so unorganized it is ridiculous. The park itself is very nice, well groomed. - Traveling2Some

Very nice camp and camp hosts. Very clean, park was full. Good water, good electricity, good sewer hookups. Very good WiFi. Gravel, hot water in showers which are clean. Sites are close to Crooked River bluffs. About half residents seemed to be seasonal. - Jim Lee

We stayed in our fifth-wheel for 4 days. We made a mistake with our reservations and they still accommodated us. Apparently lots of the customers come and stay for 3 or 4 months during the summer, but the park owners are on site at all times and so the sites are clean and the park is extremely quiet. Not a place that caters to children, as no play areas, but we prefer the quiet. Bathrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen at an RV park. Wi-Fi is fine for basic use and they tell you it is not designed to watch Netflix, etc. TV reception is great. Would definitely come again. - mrs-c
