17 RV 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

Lady in the office was very pleasant. Park was clean. My only concern was the pet walk area. There were paths, but too much over growth for me to feel safe about our dogs. My fear was snakes in the growth or around the rocks. - Skipp

Quite park with tall pines. great feel with some hiking trails behind park. Quite day and night. The only distraction is trains but not honking just track noise. Trains 500 yards away. - Jim dejarnett

Friendly check in. Was told when I booked reservation I would need to unhook. Worked out I didn't need to. Great Wi-fi. Rate represents PPA for overnight stay. Nice clean, quiet, shady park. Would stay here again. Never used the shower or toilets so really not fair to rate. - Clockdoctor

A nice, well-maintained RV park with long enough pull thru graveled sites for my 40' Class A towing an 18' car hauler trailer still attached. Many back in sites are available too. My site, B4, was not very level. I needed some ramps under my front wheels to keep them from hanging in the air but I suspect that may have been because I was located all the way to the front of the site to keep my trailer from protruding into the roadway at the rear of the site. Tall, 80' to 90' pines that may affect satellite reception. OTA signals available and cable is offered for a $2.00/day fee. An enclosed pool and hot tub with a steam sauna available too in the pool house. I didn't use the bathroom/shower facilities but did look in on them, very nice, clean and well-lighted. A laundry room is also available. A small workout room with a cable-weight machine and some treadmills available with a TV in the room. A large community/activity room with TV and kitchen where meals are offered on selected days. Sign up sheets are in the main office. Office and park staff are super friendly and explain all features of the park. FHU and 30A/50A service pedestal is close by. This is a full service, RV resort with cabins and some full time residents. Easy access to I-90 for 10 minute trips into Spokane. A Walmart is close by as well as other shopping needs. Close to the airport but no noise reaches the park. I would certainly camp here again if in the area. This park is affiliated with Coast to Coast. - kihei7

Camped here for 3 nights in a 40' fifth wheel. Pull through site large enough for rig and truck. Good satellite coverage from this site although not all sites due to trees. This site is probably for shorter term visitors and is not very wide although some of the sites up the hill are very large. Seem to be plenty of amenities for families. They told us Wifi wasn't very good although we didn't need it. 4G coverage was fine. - KiwiRVer

They have back in and pull through sites; full time residents on the upper level. They offer 30 and 50amp; electric was good and water quality was good; had picnic table. They offer FHU; wifi and cable TV in rec area. Offers playground, mini golf, horseshoes, pickle ball, volleyball, billiard table, foos ball, ping pong. Very family friendly. Rec area says 21 and over, but they allow kids in there to play the games (they can get pretty rowdy). Sites very close together; roads OK. - Kerch Family

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

This is my second year as camphost at Fairchild, and we absolutely love the grounds. The weather is beautiful, it is very quiet, and access to Spokane is easy. Fairchild has been a work in progress, but we are pleased at the updates! Please remember when camping at an RV park, many hosts are not paid 24/7, so utilizing the phone to ask questions is great if they are not on site (new phone!). - Camphost16

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 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 was a nice little park for an overnight stay, although a little off the beaten path from I-90. But $58.00 is too steep which includes $5.00 non resident deposit and $8.00 for entrance fee. $39.00 a night would have been more in line for the quality provided. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, the scenery was nice, and the restrooms were adequate. - Colorado Vagabond

The spaces are small and poorly defined. The majority of spaces are on a single level of grass, with no visible division between spaces. They are not level from front to back. The park's common area is immediately adjacent. Most spaces don't have a fire ring - though some do. I couldn't figure out why some places had one but my site didn't. I found the campground staff to be a little less than competent. When I checked in, they didn't know whether or not the space was still occupied. I checked in after the appointed time, and they don't know if the space is open? It was Memorial Day weekend. Strangely, some spaces were never filled. The park is right on the Spokane River. Most of my fellow campers were very nice and helpful. Some were drunk or stoned. Despite the holiday weekend, there was no enforcement of park rules. I had to personally confront three campers who were playing a lawn bowling game through my campsite. That's just not acceptable. I would never stay here again. Most Washington State Parks are good to great. Nine Mile Falls is a bad exception to the rule. - SeaTeacher

Really cool park, and close to town, and plus & minus with that. What we like was close to airport for conference, and wanted to camp close by. Our site was on the river, and all are on lower loop. Bring a bike, or hiking boots. Also close by in a golf, and discus golf. Sites are level, good cell, clean restrooms. Early season, so not a lot of staff. This place must be full all season in the summer. The river run through here fast, but very cool. Would visit again. - NXTSTOP

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

Too close together, too many permanents and hard to maneuver. Won't see me again! - Dennis H

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

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
