If you need WiFi, don't stay here. The WiFi did not work at all for the entire week we were there. I went to the office and they said it only works in the office. I tried it there and while it worked, it took 5 minutes to load one page. They said it's really slow. Also, geese poop covers the entire grass area. They want all pet owners to pick up after their pets (which they should) but they don't pick up after the geese so your pets end up stepping all over the geese poop. I wanted to point these two things out but here are the positive: Gorgeous RV Park with Amazing River and Great office staff. Very close spacing with concrete pad. - San Yun

Beautiful setting, right on the Rogue River. Good size sites with large patio pad & picnic table. Park is very clean and well kept, but with no privacy between sites. There are many permanent residents, but without the usual clutter. Staff was friendly, but all business.
We stayed two nights and spent most of our time away from the park, but we did see several people fishing. Great place for a short stop. - Nanabanana

This park in a treed setting on the banks of the Rogue River. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-through with an unobstructed view of the river right through the windshield. Our site was one of the few that was, as requested, satellite friendly. That was good because the cable TV was only 12 channels. Their 802.11 network was adequate for our minimal needs (e-mail and surfing). The park has a lot of extended stay customers. It appears to be about 50/50 between pull-through and back-in sites. For recreation, there are horseshoe pits and you can fish right from the river bank. There is a boat launch ramp, Also along the river are sever wooden decks with a picnic table, a BBQ pavilion, and a boardwalk that goes west under the bridge. The bathrooms/showers and laundry are in the center of the park and barely adequate for this size park. They are older, but clean. I liked the park because of the great site we had (river view and satellite friendly), but most people won't get that. The cost is also way out of line at over $50 a night. - Jerry S

They said big rigs OK' however unless you want to tear the roof off your RV, I recommend you stay clear of this park. They told us it was a RV park; however, I think we were the only transient RV in the park and judging from the leaf accumulation and low hanging tree branches on all the roads, there hasn't been an overnighter in some time. The staff was friendly, but that is the only nice thing I can say. We damaged our ladder from trees and both entrances are bad, but the south entrance is almost impossible with a RV. The front is accessible, but you will drag branches on the roof. I promise, we will NEVER return. - flyturbo60

Nice little Jackson County Park where the Elk Creek flows into the Rogue River. Paved roads and spaces with many trees. A little tight maneuvering in the park with our 40' RV but made it ever so nicely around to our site. Nice wide and level spaces with water, elec, table and fire ring (dump station at exit). Wonderful view of the Rogue River right out our front window. We had 4 bars ATT cell and 4G data for WiFi. No roof top satellite or over the air antenna. Some traffic noise from Hwy 62 during the day, but quiet at night. Very nice Host. We will return to this wonderful park on the river. - Lu Larson

Nice quiet place to stay. We only stayed 1 night but there was no trouble and we were placed far enough back that the road didn't bother us at all. - CarlaF

Very nice wide open spaces, not overcrowded. No sewer at the site but a nice dump station. Our site did not offer a lot of shade until late, late afternoon but that is when you need it most. We did not take advantage of the other end of the park near the lake since we arrived late. Great paths to walk and nice dog areas. Wonderful for the price, I would recommend to anyone for a nice break from your typical RV park. Very relaxing. - Peggy G

This is a beautiful campground, grass, and trees, paved level, spacious sites with water & electric hookups, no sewer, but there is a dump station. The bathrooms/showers were very clean and up to date and well taken care of, as is the entire campground. There is a nice fenced pet area.
There is firewood for sale in the campground.
We were in B loop and din't notice any of the road noise mentioned by others.
There is a nice trail down by the lake.
The only problem we had, was though no fault of the campground, there was a large fire that covered the entire area with heavy smoke at times, but never really threatened the CG.
If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly stay here. - bukhrn

Very much enjoyed our 4 night stay. Our spot was spacious and shady and we had a bit of a lake view. Bathrooms clean, albeit we were there during fires and the park was not full. Would be a 9.5 if they had sewer and a 10 if they had a Verizon signal. Can't really complain when the Oregon State Parks are a third of the price of overpriced CA State Parks. - MrsWeller

What a wonderful find at the end of a long drive from Seattle! A pool and shade on a hot day, just minutes from I-5. We are on a path to California, but what a treat to spend a a night in a park-like setting. Quiet, with manicured acreage to just hang out and wind down. Wonderful amenities , including a pool, family friendly, but managed to be quiet and slow-paced. Turn off your tv and roam. Oh, yes, the turns might be a LITTLE tight, but you get trees! We are not expert drivers, but we were fine here. Feels like one of the private parks. - Coloradorver
Sep 2013 - $30.00
Quiet campground in a park-like setting. The staff (which appears to be one person) is friendly. capable, and accommodating. The baths, showers and laundry are very clean. I'm only giving this a lower score because there is no cable, the WiFi is extremely slow, and there are PAY showers. I haven't run into pay showers in a campground in years. - cactuslady

The best thing about this park, for us, was NO road noise. Sites are plenty wide enough, and many have a small deck with a picnic table, but turns were tight and some branches needed to be cut back. Also, entry/exit lane was long, but too narrow and would require one RV to pull onto grass if there was an entry and an exit at the same time. Shade trees were nice, but at the time of year we were there, the ones at our site were dropping a lot of acorns on the RV, and us. Large flocks of turkeys walking through the site and ducks in the pond were fun to watch, and didn't cause any noticeable mess, but we did not have a dog. Showers use quarters. Mail slots for long term residents were in the laundry room where anyone could have access to it. We enjoyed our 4 day stay, but left with some dents and mild scratches. - Steve & Mary

We chose this park because it offers monthly rates and allows users to have broadband cable hooked up at the site. There is no wifi and occasionally weak cell signal in the park. Pros: site manager is very pro-active, involved and friendly, maintenance crew is great, park is quiet, well-maintained. Cons: stray cats in the park, with their urinating/defecating and fighting were a slight nuisance. There are a lot of long-term residents and some of the rigs are showing age. The area is industrial and there was some noise at night related to industrial activities. The area around the park has a lot of transient / drug user folks passing through, although we did not have any problems with theft and never felt unsafe. Overall, though, it was a fairly convenient location for visiting attractions in Southern Oregon, such as Crater Lake, while still being close to Medford. It is in a semi-rural area with a beautiful view of Mt McLoughlin and quaint ranches with mini-horses and goats, etc. Even though we weren't sure what to think when we first arrived, and this place is not a "resort" type park, we would stay here again. Our three months here were pleasant and fit our needs well. - ErikaN

Much as other reviewers said. Nice little park, we got in after dark, and some one was there to help us find our spot and led us to it. Left at first light. A little steep for what you get, but it is right where we want it as we head south. Wish they were PA. Quiet and near stores. We will stay here again. - Kalama Traveler

This park is about 5 miles from I-5 which helps it not be so loud. They have full hookups with cable, 50 amp, pull through, no wifi. The street is paved and site is gravel and needs a little leveling on your part. The showers are good size (group dressing area). The ladies area is decently clean, but the men's could use cleaning more often. There is a reasonably priced laundry room with two of each. The grass is kept mowed. There is a little patch of grass between some sites. There is no store in this park. This exit off the interstate has good shopping like Walmart, Target, Lowe's, many places to eat, Costco. To find the park it's easier to turn on Merry Lane instead of Gramercy Dr (which your GPS may tell you) (both get you there). And a tip to leave: Turn right out of the park and follow it around then turn left at the stop sign and it takes you to a traffic light at hwy 62 which gets you to I-5. - Jjtrips

This is a convenient (to I-5) well maintained park. Wi-fi was good and facilities kept up. Rate is for water & electric site. - Vista Queen

KOA discount for a FHU, 50 amp, pull-thru, level, dirt site with surrounding grass area under trees. Basic cable TV. No satellite reception because of trees. WiFi work okay. Good Verizon cell and MiFi reception. There was not much noise from I-5. We stayed for three nights to visit Crater Lake National Park and Oregon Cave National Monument. - Dave51

First KOA visit in a long time. A bit disappointing only had water and 30 amp at our site but was able to pull forward in the gravel site and get a signal
Campsite had discarded trash and a dead bird on arrival. Campground in general was somewhat run down. Surprised that a KOA was this worn. Site was level. Staff was friendly and when site problems were brought to their attention the problems were addressed quickly
Requires driving for restaurants and supplies as facility is rural. - Old Detective

Highly overpriced. The campground is probably at least 95% permanent residents and there are many mobile homes with various older RVs mixed in. Quite messy and dirty - clearly no rules regarding the appearance or maintenance of the residents outside areas. The sites are narrow and packed in - neighbors are very close, cats are running around.
The river is below the park, and the highway is very close by. Quite a bit of road noise.
WiFi is open and quite slow.
The whole park needs maintenance. The restrooms could be cleaner.
One of the residents helped our kids unhook a small fish by the river, and was very nice to them - and came by our RV after to say hello. Very positive ex-service person with a great attitude. That person saved our day :-)
Would not come again, though. - International tourist

Beautiful, older park with views of mountains and river. Each space is huge providing the occupant with their own "yard", giving plenty of space for privacy. Owners are very friendly and knowledgeable of area interests. Rates are very reasonable and park is kept clean. Would definitely stay there again. - txtransplants
