This is a fishing camp, and if that is what you want, then it is Great. Since it is Columbia Shores resort we were expecting better. Has water and 50 amp. Really tight spaces. If you need to dump, they only allow black water dumping even though their brochure says gray. Internet is $1 per day per device. (We have 7 devices.) Cable TV is $1 per day, but you are better off using your antenna as cable does not have ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox. Dusty, dirty streets. Club house is clean and welcoming. - DigMyPast

Nice location if fishing out of Ilwaco, and close to Long Beach if you want to utilize your KM park access. Office staff was helpful and professional. Tight spots that were mostly back-in, but deep enough to accommodate big rigs. Wi-Fi and cable worked well. Right on HWY 101 so the road noise during the day was always in the background and as mentioned in previous reviews, no sewer dump at campsites. Plane Jane park with no KM amenities that you would expect with the price of membership and yearly dues. With that said, location is great for playing on the WA and OR coast. KM nightly price for minimal for cable and Internet. - 737geek

The K/M web-site calls this a "fish camp" and it really is. If you are a fisherman, great. Not so good otherwise. At the time of our visit both the TV and Internet were down due to the bankruptcy of the provider. Large sites, quiet. - wetterwashington

We can't say enough about this campground, the bathrooms are so clean you could eat off the floors. Grounds are immaculate, the owners very helpful and friendly. This is the nicest campground in the area and there is also a great view! We stayed 5 nights. - lwabend

Park is in the trees right on the bay. You can watch the ocean going ships entering the Columbia River.
Sites are all grass, a combination of pull thrus and back ins.
Camp hosts are super - they offered to help set up our rig, even helped me back into chosen site. Park is open for another 2-3 weeks so we got in just in time.
Washrooms (2 showers) and laundry (2 washers, 2 dryers) were clean. Our only comment would be that there are no locks on any of the washroom cubicles. I don't know why this is.
We would definitely stay here again - park was lovely and quiet for a weekend stay. - DCM/JMB

This is an older park that is a gem. Very nice, large spaces among the trees. We had electrical and water and a grey water drain. There is a dump site to use. Located across the bay from Cape Disappointment. We would return. - Thirdtime

This older park was recently updated. Paved road. Gravel back-in site with a picnic table. Updated restroom building. Office is being modeled. Close to the Columbia River boat dock. - bradydane2009

Wallicut River R.V. Resort used to be a KOA RV park that we had never stayed at before but we were looking for a new RV park in this area as we have been very unhappy with previous parks in the area because of major dog problems in some we have stayed in. Here, there were actually two dogs in the office so we did business through the door crack. My wife is extremely allergic to dogs and other animals so I did not want to track any dog stuff back to our rig. The grass pull-through we got and were told was flat was so bad with dips and groves that I had to pull my motorhome back onto the gravel road to unhook my towed vehicle. The big problem was that they want $50 a night for no WiFi, no cable, and a not so flat grass only parking space. The electric box cover at our site fell off when I tried to open it and there are no circuit breakers at all in the electric box. The park I had left just an hour earlier with no WiFi and no cable but with a flat graveled surface and circuit breakers in the electric box was just $15 a night. Much closer to what is a normal price for no amenities. We would never go back here. - Roger W

This is another area park we probably stayed at last century but has no real recollection of being here. We had a fairly level, gravel, FHU, pull-through site. There are only 17 FHU sites. There are also 20 W&E sites, about 40 tents sites, half a dozen cabins, and some large group camping areas. The FHU sites have 60 channel cable TV and most of them are satellite friendly. Their 802.11 network was fine until early evening when everybody Started to get on it - you now have single sites that are using 3, 4, or more electronic devices at the same time. The park was fairly full with lots of groups camping together. With all the tent sites, the bath and shower facilities were inadequate. The laundry room was OK and cheap. There is no pool but there is a nice playground area. I saw no recycling. There is nothing within walking distance of the park. This park is fine for a one night stay while traveling through the area. - Jerry S

Sites are grass and not very level. Not a very well kept KOA. Staff was nice, but no real amenities. Ok for an overnight. - EJK

The office staff was rude. The cable tv was terrible. Our site was next to a slight incline so when the slides were open we couldn't walk along the side to get to our car and could barely open the front door. We were in an area of total trees which made everything so dark and final it was depressing. First thought it was like a state campground. NOT. the upper level was treeless but sites very close to each other. If you have the right site it could be an ok place. Buildings were old. Pool building rusted. Wouldn't go back. - NancyKurimay

Stayed over Memorial Day weekend. Always like being in the trees. The facility is a bit outdated but sits in a beautiful location above Ilwaco. - Pnw0411

The phase 2 section is heavily wooded and very much like a state park. The sites appear to be reasonably level and spaced out. Section 1 is just a grass field without picnic tables or fire pits. The cable TV only has one channel that comes in clear enough to be able to watch. We are not happy about their lack of honesty in telling us about their cable problems in advance when they knew that was our main interest when we called to make reservations. This is an older park but has some charm in section 2. - Windshift

We are full time travelers and have stayed at too many parks to count. We were worried as a result of the negative reviews online, but were happily surprised. The sites have lush green grass between them which was a welcome coolness to bare feet. We had an end site by the tents so it was more spacious than most sites. The site location makes a big difference. The only trees are on the outside perimeter on 2 sides. WiFi was usually good and had a recent upgrade. The restrooms were immaculate and had a large ante-room in the shower stalls and they have spotless laundry facilities and which even included a laundry basket for use! We do not have a TV but understand they do not have cable. Office closes early (4pm). - Patron

This an older park but in good condition. Wi-Fi worked but slow at times. All back-in sites, some gravel and some asphalt. Only 30 amp service and no cable but there about 5 channels with a portable antenna. - Windshift

We spent 2 days here. This is an older park that is showing signs of wear. Some spots have picnic tables, some do not. Hookups are shared with other site; only 30 amp service. Tried to take a shower but big sign said no hot water, when I asked about it the guy in the office thought I was out of line for asking about it. He said the other building has a shower; the water went out last week. Wi-Fi was not working; very low signal. For what they charge everything should work not worth the money they charge. Good for overnight but not long term. Only back-in sites, gravel but covered with moss. The grass needs to be mowed, too. Might stay overnight again just to see if things are fixed. - Terry Buholm

We stayed here as it was one of few parks which had space available without a reservation. Our site was dirt/gravel with quite a bit of slope and weedy grass surrounding the site. Utilities worked fine, placement acceptable. There was adequate space between sites EXCEPT for the neighboring fire rings which were within a foot or two of slide outs. Those that insisted on having a fire (and there were many) choked the rest of us out. Spent most of the time closed up with the AC running.
Being a "family friendly" park there were many activities/play areas for children. This does lead to quite a bit of noise, had 2 nights of kids running around the park throwing poppers until midnight.
All in all a nice place to let the kids run and have fun, not so much if you are looking for a quiet, smoke free park. - Dogs and Cats

Off season this park could be a 9. In season it is swarming with kids and dogs. We were here Labor Day weekend. The site 313 was very long, level & the width was acceptable. Good 50 amps and satellite service. No grass but that could be due to a long season of kids and no rain. Lots of activities for kids. Great location to visit the beach (you can drive on the beach here and take your dog) and lots of historical spots near by. Personnel is extremely efficient and friendly. A very well run campground. - Freedom Bus

Was able to get a back-in site on short notice. Unable to specify a specific spot unless you pay an additional 10 dollars during online booking? Plus 10 dollars a night "resort" fee. $$$ Was given a spot in the "400" loop. Do not stay there! Site to our left, fire pit 6 feet from slide window, unable to open any windows due to smoke. Sites are too close and recently added tv cable posts at rear of site impede parking units with two slides. Gravel access road was loud and dusty with speeding cars at all times of the day. - F250Jack

Very nice state park in a great area of Oregon. Good sites with separation between. Convenient hook ups, clean restrooms and showers. Sites have picnic tables and firepits with grates. Would recommend. We stayed here in Travel Trailer. - JABMPM

Fort Stevens is a favorite. Normally we come here in the shoulder season, or off season to avoid the crowds. It was still nice, noisy, but nice. Only 4 loops have sewer. 3 lane dump station at the entrance/exit. - Bob Nelson

For a state park this is a very nice campground. We had full hookups and had no problems with them. We did get OTA channels with only slight breakups while watching. As others have said some of the sites are difficult to get into because of parked cars and trees that are not well placed. We had one of those sites and it took some time to get backed in on the very narrow pad. We did have one night of noisy neighbors but we lived through it.
The campground is great for trails, both bike and walking, and the beach was only a 3/4 mile walk away.
We would stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

A really, really pretty Washington state park with easy access to a very gorgeous beach with some cool, old, very large driftwood. We loved the layout of this large park! The small, separate loops make it seem like a much smaller park than it really is. All sites are back in, but if you snag an end spot, you have no neighbors on the patio side. Our site, #50 (full hookups) was very wide with great privacy, although a bit on the short side for our 43' RV with a tow ( we hung over the road a bit, but no problems ). Very dog friendly with plenty of poop bag stations and no problems with dogs running on the beach off leash. The posted tide charts are really helpful to newbies to the area. Zero problems with big rig access depending on loop. The park does fill up, so plan ahead, especially on the weekends. Very high on our "must visit again" list. Downsides....no Verizon coverage in the park, but signal is available near the park entrance and on the beach toward the jetty; no satellite tv available due to tree coverage; no OTA tv available; and the dumpsters STINK! - Jerry and Betsy

This is a beautiful Washington State Park, set on the long beach north of the Columbia River jetty. The site we were camped in didn't have any services, but there were other sites in the park that did. There is a dump station on the way in/out.
Our site was literally steps away from the beach, quiet, spacious and clean. There are many trails in the area and two lighthouses to visit. The Lewis and Clark interpretive center is an excellent attraction. - sail2blue

One of nicest state parks we've ever been in. Price based on amount of services. We had full hookups for 45.00/nite. Personnel great. Bathrooms plentiful and clean. Beach wonderful. Sites 1-180 arranged in spokes of 10 sites per spoke which made this campground feel more private than it was. No cell service with Verizon. Interesting towns nearby. Few of sites had partial ocean views. If I had one of those, this campground definitely a 10. - smitty12

Potentially an 8 or 9, very friendly, helpful staff. 1892 Lodge w/four suites in converted upstairs Ballroom area unique as are all the various trailers for rent on daily/weekly basis, all items for sale in Lodge fairly priced on honor system. Rules posted for pets on leash and pickup poorly enforced and not adequate for 'responsible' pet owners. Shrubs and trees are in dire need of pruning and thinning to assist w/new growth and protection of RV campsite areas. Mostly paved access roadways and mostly grassy areas for campsites w/nice central fireplace area for nighttime fire and central kitchen for both RVers use and guests staying in unique vintage trailers. A must-see if passing through the area. Electrical service in RV area in dire need of updating as power surges and fluctuates with outages experienced. We had to pick up likely 3 dozen cigarette butts plus discarded peanut hulls in/around our campsite immediately upon check-in; some TLC would yield huge attractiveness; within walking distance of beaches and fine dining next door; excellent meals @ The Depot. - westieRVer

Stayed here over Labor Day, it was crowded but a pleasant crowded, not crammed in crowded. Owner and staff are friendly, out and about working everyday. Wi-Fi was slow in early evening but strong in am. Beach is within walking distance. An Izuzu Right hand drive mini parked next to us. The door faced our door. I couldn't figure out why door was on the left side of the unit then I realized it was right-hand drive and imported from Japan. The Canadian owners were friendly. Best spot is #42. Lots of vintage trailers to rent here, resident artists, music in the lodge. A neat place. - Jim Lee

Short drive to the beach. Quaint combination of vintage lodge, cottages, trailers, and RV park. If you love vintage trailers, you will appreciate the assortment. Interesting old resort town with lots of lovely homes and right next to Long Beach. Grass sites. Not too reliable electricity for big rig. Good we have surge protector. Very casual type of place. We spent 4 days here. Enjoyed driving 4wheel on the beach and letting dog run on beach. - Newbet
