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.

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 camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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.

We stayws here for 4 nights. The accommodations are OK. The rate is Coast to Coast. There is also a $3/day resort fee. This resort needs updating. The sites are very close together and have no room for your tow vehicle except in a separate parking area. The two employees we met were very nice and helpful.

As others say the sites are very tight, they are mostly back to back and very narrow. Only one site for 40+ footer. Nice lake. Poor 30 Amp in warm weather. Lots with no sewer. Nice staff. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for a few days. The sites are very close together. I would say less then 15' wide. They put us in the area with only two way hookup: water and electric. This may have been since we were here through Coast 2 Coast. Office staff seemed very friendly. An older campground which was good before slides were put on rigs.

Stayed here as a member of Sunrise Resorts. The sites are fairly level, but close together. We had a triangle shaped spot in a corner that gave us more room but we noticed other spaces had marginal room with open slides. Office staff was very friendly. There is a lot of night traffic noise if you're parked by the main road. Great lake views with benches and picnic tables. Stayed here for a week and will stay again when in the area.

Low voltage is an issue at this campground. And, as other reviewers have noted, the sites are narrow. Some have picnic tables, Roads and sites are gravel with adequate space to maneuver. The lake is pleasant to look at with a grassy lawn instead of a beach. The campground fills on weekends and is much quieter midweek. There is some shade at most sites. Sewer hookups cost extra. Restrooms were clean enough, but they felt shabby. There were two showers; one was small and cramped whereas the other was designed for handicap use. They shared a spacious dressing area. Rate is for AOR and includes resort fee and tax. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Staff is friendly and helpful. Old park from days of smaller rigs. Sites are barely big enough to put your slides out and we couldn't even park our car near our MH. Only weak 30 amp service. Bathroom and shower was OK. Some sites are satellite friendly. We stayed at member rate because it was convenient location to our activities. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very little room between sites. Don't stay in spaces 48-52 as there are issues with the septic. Yuck! The hosts were very nice though and found us another site as soon as we complained. Pretty lake. Wish there were more of a "beach" for going in the water. Not sure we would stay here again. We camped at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
