17 Parks near Cheney, Washington
Jul 2012 - $31.00
This park is really not set up well for tent trailers or tent camping. There is no place to dispose of waste water. So we, like our only neighbors just threw our grey water on the ground. We did not feel this was very safe or hygienic, but saw no alternative. We were led to our site by a man on a small electric cart. He gave us no information as to where the bathrooms or showers were located and we had to hunt around to find them. The bathrooms were reasonably clean but the shower room we used was dirty. We also were not happy to find that after walking over to the showers that you had to pay to use them. They take quarters, so we then had to hike over to the store and get change and then back to the showers. There was no mention of showers being coin operated when we checked in or on their website, and it felt insulting to us to be asked to pay for this service that is free at the other campgrounds we have stayed at. The bathrooms and showers are a ways from the camping area and not what I was consider conveniently placed. The lake was refreshing and seemed clean to enter off the boat dock. We used this park as a resting spot for the night on our trip from Glacier Nat. Park and Portland, OR. It was not as conveniently located as maps had suggested for a layover on this route. I could not recommend this for anyone using it for a similar trip. It looked like the RV's parked here had much nicer arrangement. - Maplestreet12

The other reviews from past are still right on. I have a big rig (40') and was told there was "plenty of room." The site was a back in, told there was a table and fire pit. Not there. One was "taken" from a rental house saying they weren't supposed to have one, and drug over to site. Rear of my RV was within one foot of the unit behind me. Driving in was an experience I will NEVER forget: inches between my new RV getting damaged. Had to wait to have several cars moved from semi permanent residences to get TO the site. My awning when extended, was a foot from the neighbors rig. I had to wait until 5 different tent/pickup campers to pack up and leave from the grassy area across from my RV, before I could carefully navigate out of the park. I did have an escort to guide me in, but no help out. Took me 15 minutes to get about 50 yards out. (After waiting over 2 hours for others to leave, so I could leave.) If you are tenting, or have a small pickup camper, this is an OK park. If you have a trailer or motorhome, look somewhere else. Great park they just pack way too much into: to make more $$$. - kaptainkirk

This park was s big disappointment. I had asked to reserve a pull through site, and apparently they don't know what a pull through site is. Also, the spot they put us in was barely long enough and so close to neighbors. There are a number of full-time manufactured units nearly, and vehicles that are parked there are a serious hindrance to safely backing into one's campsite. Really the only positive comment I have is that the restaurant is nice but the service was very slow. - Susan B

This is a small campground, with lots of full timers. Nice thing is lots of shade and centrally located for Cheney activities. Bad thing is bathrooms are old and unappealing. I would try to find another campground in the area. - G&S Smith

We enjoyed our week stay at Peaceful Pines. We stayed at site 14 which had water and electric only. We had good satellite reception. They have good water pressure and the 50 amp service was good. The park has some full service and the rest are water and electric only. We love trains. Our site had a good view of BNSF and UP lines. At least 1 train per hour. Lots of trains. We will come back. Would have given a 10 rating if our site had a sewer hookup. - jo dee

Lots of train noise. Small older park with large pines. Lots of signs warning dogs to stay off the grass. Dog area is dirt and weeds. Bathrooms old but very clean. Sites are small and close together. - 2blondes

We stayed here through Coast to Coast at $10 a night and were not charged any up charges. The park is on the edge of a residential area but was nice and quiet. Our site R13 was very narrow, we could not extend our awning all the way. The hookups were good and worked well. The park is neat and well kept. Convent place to stay to visit Spokane. - houseonwheels

Our second stay here and we were just as impressed as the first time around. Great location with easy access to I-90, shopping and restaurants. Super friendly staff, easy to get around camp and the sites are very nice. Great water pressure too. - Dedra C

Fantastic little membership park convenient to Spokane right off freeway. Full hookup pull-throughs with great Verizon cell, free WiFi (we got it in rig even!), and inexpensive laundry. Did not use pool/spa but looked clean and well kept. Small but full fitness room with weights/cardio. Did not avail ourselves of activities/meals. Cost is $0 for ROD members. Will definitely stay here again. - brauneyz

We stayed here overnight, twice. The facilities were clean. The RV sites are paved and level. - L Langman

Could be a great place to go for the weekend! But the government employees do little to keep up the resort except mow and water. The buildings playgrounds and docks are nice, but the milfoil has infested this section of the lake and they do nothing to control it like the rest of the lake residents. And there are geese droppings everywhere you walk! The spots are okay...but could be wider. If your neighbor has slides be prepared to keep your awning in! - W. Bates

We stayed here for a month for $380.00. We were looking for a safe place to leave our RV for a few days while we did an Alaskan cruise and in that respect it worked out well.
It's a nice quiet, secure, friendly park.
The local commander apparently does not have the fam camp on his priority list. There is lots of dead grass and stickers surrounding the park our dogs had to tread lightly.
The spaces are tight and the sewer hook ups are right outside your door. The sewers have no threaded connections and require a rock or board to stay in. We had to open the valves only part way to prevent the sewer from backing up, so draining the tanks took a while. Only part of the machines worked in the laundry and when the coin boxes are full it takes a day or two for accounting to come empty them if you can find the camp host to notify them. The camp host was friendly and accommodating but difficult to contact most of the time. If in the area again I would opt for a commercial campground. - pheasantplucker57

We arrived in early afternoon on a Monday and had several spaces to choose from. By Wednesday there were RVs in the overflow area. The camp host is very nice and informative. Did not go into the restrooms or laundry. Camp host said the laundromat machines are not working well. Wifi is so bad they might as well not have it. Verizon cell and hotspot worked fine. Antenna-TV was good. Place is very quiet with not much airplane traffic. See tips for how to find Rambo Gate to get in. We missed the gate and had to go in the main gate where the guards were very nice and accommodating, just warning us to come in Rambo next time. We would definitely stay again. - all4pets

We arrived after hours and were told to go through the Rambo Gate. Took security about 10 - 15 mins. for them to open the gate. Pulled in and they open all the bays and then they went through our rig before we could go any further. You will need to turn in any weapons while you're on base. The camp host was friendly and met us as we drove in. He advised us we would need to go into overflow until a space opened up. The overflow area was full of weeds and holes, which made walking a bit of a challenge. There were numerous vehicles also parked in the overflow area. The camp host came by the following morning and advised there was a space opening up and we could move as soon as they left. The laundry room was clean. Watering was being done via hoses moved around by the camp host. We were a few sites away from the laundry room in the trees and our satellite worked fine. - MAFLAF

We needed a place to stay for one night only and this was located just outside of Spokane near the airport. The location was convenient, however for the price, it was really not a great place to stay. It's actually a motel with 2 small RV parks behind it. The motel has a cabin-like look to them on the exterior and looked clean and homey from the road. One of the RV areas is for older RV's. It looked like there were several long term residents parked there. We stayed in the area which was reserved for newer RV's. They said there was a pull-through lot, but we didn't see one. It only had maybe 7 spots or so, but you would be crammed in tight together if it was full. We happened to be in there with only one other RV, so it was relatively private that particular night. A plus about the park is it is in amongst the trees, so it has the feel of not being right in or around a city, but there is absolutely no privacy from space to space. The mosquitoes were horrible while we were there and we couldn't eat outside at all. They said they had Wi-Fi, which was part of why we were willing to pay the higher price, however it was very spotty and didn't come in much at all, a big disapointment. I am not sure we would stay there again. The spaces were also pretty uneven, I can't imagine parking a really large RV there. We were in a 28 foot travel trailer and it was difficult to even it up. - User804

This review is for the Bowl and Pitcher campground. The rate and review are for the non-hookup, dry camping section of the park. The rate does not include the $8 reservation fee or the $5 non-resident fee to bring the cost to over $33 per night (four nights camping) for a parking spot in a dirt field - far too expensive. The hook-up sites are much nicer, but book up early. The non-hookup sites are located next to the entry road with lots of traffic. The sites are laid out in a haphazard order and really are nothing but vaguely defined spaces in the dirt, spaces fairly close together and with nothing for visual separation. There is nothing remotely pleasant about it. As vehicles idle while waiting in line for the entry booth the campground has the feel of a freeway toll booth. To add injury to insult, there was a very, very bright light on the side of the restrooms that bathed the campground in a harsh bright light all night long. It had both train and plane sounds. We were able to get satellite with our portable dish and Verizon data and voice were strong. It is a bit of a trip through city traffic to get here from Interstate. Check the park web site or reservation e-mail for the best route as there are closed roads on the route that your GPS will take you. We will not be returning to this campground. - TheJim

Nice clean park, full of Ponderosa Pines. Plenty of room between sites. Friendly staff. Water is still off for winter...power though and a winter water faucet at entrance to fill tanks.
Get there via Gun Club road to avoid so much crowded residential traveling. You would take Maple to Francis then out to Gun Club road and enter the park from the north. - Trekking

I must not be a typical RVr because I don't go to a state park with high expectations for services. If your top 5 must haves are about hookups, WIFI etc then you should go to an RV park next to the freeway. This a beautiful state park along the river that oh by the way has some hookups. Most hookup sites were taken so we dry camped in nice spot away from the crowded utility sites. Nice trails across the river for hiking and biking. Very quiet place for sleeping unlike a freeway RV park! - Fishmon

Tight entrance; ok for our 30', don't know if I would try a 40'...friendly staff; freeway noise but no problem inside coach; full h/up and good WiFi included, great location if you want to be near the city, decent value for your $$, would stay again. - Buck44

The owners of this place have put some money in and made some improvements! The "perms" are either gone or were made less obvious somehow. The RV park is behind a vintage bungalow motel. The grass and flowers in the center of the "RV circle" were very pretty. I must give one "heads up" for one major driving issue. If the motel is full, and there are lots of cars, you have to play "thread the needle" to weasel your RV through the cars to get to the RV section. I held my breath and I'm in a Class C! I'd hate to watch Class A's do this, although there were some Class A's here during my stay. Also, the sites are rather close together. So, if you stay here, just hope your neighbors are decent. The owners are very nice and will help you get in your space, as it's a bit tight weaseling around the RV section. I didn't use the WiFi or cable, so can't comment. The $39 I paid is with taxes and Good Sam discount. Yes, a bit pricey for what you get. But the location is good if you are attending an event at the Fairgrounds, or if you want access to mass transit. There are other RV parks in Spokane area along Sprague Avenue, but. Let's just say this is your best option if you want to be in Spokane and not in the outlying areas. - DXSMac

What a dump. Not a good park for a 37' motorhome. It seemed we were the only non-permanent residents here. The permanent trailers were quite old and showed their age. Our site had 20 LONG sharp screws and many more all over the gravel. I collected many and presented them to management. They dispatched 3 people to clean our site of screws. We were in a corner spot, patio side overlooked a very dumpy building with picnic benches and wood poles stacked within 10 feet of our site. Dog owners do not pickup after their pets in general. Very friendly and accommodating but well below what I'd picture as Good Sams standards. - Jag

We were there only one night. This is not a destination park; however, it is close to downtown, in our case the hospitals. We were in site#90, it was very level, but difficult to back due to the narrow access road. Since the site was wide enough for both the tow car and the motorhome it was achievable. Would we stay again? Yes it close to town and it was quiet. - Tod7

Very nice people. Tidy park. Shade trees, grass between sights. Playground! Next to interstate but we did NOT hear road noise. Only a couple 50amp @ $45. Most are 30amp and we were darn lucky it wasn't in the 90s like the week before! Claim pull thrus are 55' but everything is so narrow and tight and parking in streets that they should not accept anything over 38 and it's still tight to get your truck or toad in with you! Lousy wifi. Nice people but we won't be back with our 43' mh. - sawdustsal

Parking lot with very close spaces. Dirty. Pet area is outside the park in the parkway on the street. - oldcarfun

I reviewed this park almost a year ago to the day, and a few changes that I need to talk about that were on the positive side.
The dust wasn't nearly as bad in the camping area because they had watered it and the grass/weeds were actually green and mowed. This made for a more dust controlled environment.
The maintenance workers and so forth for the fairgrounds, still raced through the gravel area and they could've slowed down a little bit more for a more dust controlled environment.
But overall our stay was pleasant. The 50 amp power worked great. The water pressure you definitely need a regulator, runs at about 95 psi. The dump area was clean overall.
I'll come back if need be.
Just drive in slow, and exit slow for the enjoyment of others. - monaco cruiser

Stayed 5 nights. No one else there. Just a cheap place to stay near downtown. Easy off ramp off I-90. - Dan Md

Don't expect much, but it's dry, semi dusty, because people don't slow down place to park. The park is on the backside of the fairgrounds and has hookups but no sewer. Does have a dump station. The price is right and they gave us the fourth night free(they have our vote). - monaco cruiser
