Unfortunately, we're members of the Sunrise Resorts. As full timers for over 10 years, we find this park to be one of the most undesirable parks we have ever spent time. Our kids live in the area, and we are stuck because of the number of suitable parks in the area. As members. we should get the premium sites, but we only have poor 30 amp service, no sewer, low water pressure, stinky sites, low branches, tight turns, noise, and can't put our awning or BBQ outside because we are too close to our neighbors. All sites are poorly leveled gravel, and by looking, you can tell campers are dumping their tanks (I hope just grey) on the ground because of the lack of sewer connections. Absolutely everything costs extra, so be prepared. There are many tall trees to the Southeast, so getting a satellite signal is almost impossible. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were in space 1. No trees, picnic table or fire pit. We felt like we were in a driveway!

Power went out. One of the other guests had to trip the fuse box as power went off and no one was in office. They left before 6pm.

Only one sewer dump. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Yikes, what happened to this place? We have stayed here several times in the past, this time it is quite different. The park is full, but many appear to be seasonals. Packed in like sardines. Sewer no longer functional, all sealed up. 30 amp is poor 106 volts. water pressure is ok, AT&T ok, park wifif non existent. we stayed here in a 40 ft MH, we will be looking for an alternative the next time we come up here. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Staff was extremely unhelpful. Just making a reservation was difficult for them. No sewer sites and it is not even high season yet. Dirty. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Dirty stinky restrooms and showers. Sites are in semi gravel mud with weeds, no trees on the site we were issued as represented. Attempted to get another site with trees and better grading but was denied. Once they have your money upon reservation there is no going back for a change. My wife and I left early because the park was so muddy and filthy. This is a membership park (we aren't members), the members we spoke with were not at all happy with this place and vowed not to return. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Large park with pull thru and back in sites. All sites level gravel. The big rigs pull thru sites are very narrow, not enough room for awning if rig in next site. 75% of the sites do not have sewer and all only have 30 amp. Tall pine trees so 90% of sites have no satellite signal. Next to with direct access to Lake Sawyer. No pool, spa or exercise room. Wi-fi extra thru outside service. Very good Verizon cell and 4G signal. Nice kid's areas but no activities such as breakfasts etc. Staff great. We would stay there again. Private membership park, Sunrise Resorts. Cost listed is for Sunrise member and also accept RPI, C 2 C not ROD. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The only redeeming quality of this park is the setting. The entire facility is desperately in need of maintenance and/or replacement. Judging from the photos online it looked really nice, but don't let those photos fool you. We requested a full hook up spot when we reserved our space months ago, but apon arrival we only were able to get water and electricity even though there are multiple empty spaces in the full hookup areas. The space we are in is ridiculously small, the smallest we've ever had anywhere. The grass is dead. The driveways and pads are half gravel, half dirt, and very uneven. The dump station takes a half hour because the septic system is so old it's caving in. The management has a "like it or lump it" attitude. What a shame because the setting truly is very lovely. We are cutting our stay short and will never be back. We stayed in a 32' travel trailer. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is old and shows it. The bathrooms have not been updated since they were built. Although there are sewer hookups, most sites are not allowed to use them. There used to be cable hookups, but since cable went digital, cable is no longer available. A satellite signal is not possible at least 50% of the sites. The power supply is iffy, at best. The first day we were there, the power went off and on due to the load of a warm summer day. Internet access is provided through a fee-based company.
On the positive side - the staff are friendly and the park is on Lake Sawyer. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here in a 40 footer. Spots were a little tight and unlevel. No sewer in our section. The place was quiet. No satellite reception. AT&T was good. Park Wi-Fi was good too; cost $5 for 3 days. Cost reflects Coast to Coast rate. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This has gone so far downhill it is now down right dangerous. It is the only park close to relatives. They had 8 coaches on one - 100 amp circuit. 96 degree heat meant NO ONE had power. Owners could care less, they were trying to put more rigs into the same area! Sewer system is a joke. Town of Black Diamond won't approve any upgrades as they are trying to force them out.

We used to really enjoy this park and as a Sunrise Resorts member looked forward to returning to it but that is not the case any longer. First of all the full time residents are given preference and occupy all of the larger sites. They then proceed to trash them with their junk strewn all over and they do not keep their units clean. They are covered with tree debris, mold and mildew. Were given a narrow back in site. Due to trees and a narrow road we had a very difficult time getting our 33' fifth wheel into the site. We actually had to unhook, maneuver the truck and reconnect in order to get fairly straight on the site. Since the park has sewer available on only some of their sites and the full timers are all on sewer sites, that leaves only a small number of sewer sites for the rest of the campers. We wanted to extend our stay but are denied because of lack of a sewer site. Another problem is the electrical service. They advertise that they are a 30 amp park but it is rarely 30 amp into the unit. They need to update their service but are not putting any money into utility upkeep. There is also a problem with their sewer service. They are having to pump out on a weekly basis. Evidently there is a problem with their leach field. The rate is based on our Sunrise resort membership. We will not return to this park. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is Coast to Coast. There is an additional $3 per day "resort fee." It is on a lake, one site may have a water view, they rent boats, but otherwise there are no resort amenities. The sites, as previously posted, are very tight, no room even for awnings. The roads are narrow, making most of the sites hard to get into if there are rigs on either side, even the "pull in sites." We were put in the water and electric only sites even though there were sites available with sewer connections. As a previous poster noted, not all of them work. The electricity on our site was so low, it was awful. There was only one other coach on our row and it was stored for the weekend while the owner was away. It is good we did not need the A/C, we would have been out of luck. If we had not had an EMS system, we would probably have burned up at least a small appliance from the low voltage. Only a small portion of the sites can get satellite reception. The cable system is basic, but is does work. The park is clean, in a nice location, quiet and the office staff are friendly enough, although they refused to admit the the problems with the electrical system. Too bad there has not been any upgrades in many, many years. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

As noted in other reviews, the electric is poor, many of the sites do not have sewer. There is no cable TV at the sites, you have to go to the Adult Lounge to watch the cable TV. They charge for internet service. Roads and sites are narrow. We were charged a $15 fee to dump, even though we did not need to dump (received a lecture on the fact that everyone should dump before they travel). We are full timers and only dump when necessary. Site fee is $13 for RPI, which included the activity fee. No activities while we were there. Laundry was inexpensive at $1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry, but only 2 washers and 2 dryers. The drive into the park is long and narrow from I-5 (16 miles), coming from the north. A better route is Hwy.18 from the south. We will not return to this park.

We stayed here for 7 nights. The accommodations are OK. The rate cited is the RPI member rate, but RPI members also pay an additional $3/day resort fee. The resort buildings are clean but rundown. The sites are very close together and have no room for your tow vehicle except in a separate parking area. Many of the sites no longer have sewer hookup, ours included. Wi-Fi is available - for a fee. Most sites don't have a line of site for a satellite signal. Electric heaters are forbidden. The staff are very nice and helpful.

We generally stay in one of the six water front cabins. Very nice view from all of them. They recently remodeled them and they are quite, nice. 2 bdrm., good sized living room and kitchen, small bathrooms. Always VERY clean. The office and maintenance staff are very friendly and accommodating. I no longer use the RV park because electrical is too low and the spaces in the middle are not good for a 40 ft. rig. If you can get a back-in along the fence sites; they are much wider. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Campground Cabin.
