This campground has the cleanest campgrounds that I have stayed at. Very nice river sites and very clean park. The new owners are so nice! - Cindy44

The park has been enlarged since we were here before and there is a nice long RV spot now. the hosts are still the friendliest people who guide you to your site. I never met the owners. The only draw back is the lack of restrooms which I believe may be impossible to build so close to the river. We would certainly go back for the price and friendliness and now the longer spaces. It is a little bit of a challenge to get out pulling our toad. - saturn7

We stayed there a couple months due to work and would have moved if it were not such a pain and lack of parks. The only way this parks gets tenants is due to the lack of parks in the area. First, the owners have zero personality and are horrible dealing with the public. They yell at people, they are generally not friendly people. The park has zero amenities, no office, no club, no pool, no bathrooms, yet they charge an arm and a leg. A month stay here with electricity is about $750 a month, I think they make a bit of money on the electricity. They also charge you $25 a month if you have a second vehicle to park. There are only a few full hookup sites, the one we were in was so tight that my awnings actually went all the way over to the next rig, I had to not fully extend them as it would hit the other rig. You are not allowed to park in your space, they make you park in an area away from your rig, you have to drive between trees to get in and out, it is dirt and very tight for pickup truck type vehicles. The place is quiet, the wifi is horrible, you get on and it kicks you off, then try to get on and there is no Internet. Half the time it is not working at all, it is super slow and only good for email if you can get on. The water, well they have small areas of grass that they water, when they water, you have no water pressure. They water nearly every day and if you need a shower or something, you are out of luck until the evening when they stop watering. There is also a foul odor in the water that makes you stick to bottled water. The sites are gravel, the road in had small pipes running across it and the owner decided to put gravel speed bumps in. He has no idea what he is doing and the bumps were so high that the car bottomed out when you went over them and scraped along the bottom. When you complain, it goes in one ear and out the other, they do not care, they care about money and seem to hate people in general. Never Again will we stay here. - Randy Campbell

The recent reviews are true! Only passing through 1 night, but would not leave our 43' 2016 motorhome to venture anywhere in the area. Creepy people (mentioned below) is right. We didn't even put the jacks down and hitched up and left by 8:30 the next morning. Glad to see this place in the rear view mirror! Staff was friendly in the hotel, but the whole place needs a major upgrade, removal of the run down trailers, and lots of general maintenance. Trash cans overflowing, lots of long term trailers with junk in and around campsite. Next door to a large truck stop and highway entrance. Noisy, and a train track is somewhere close by too. Would NOT stay here again. Any RVer looking for a nice place to stop, short term or long, should avoid this place. - 2SimsNanRV

This park is located on I90 East and behind a truck stop so it can be noisy. The good parts include 50 amp service, long pull through sites, free wifi, use of the pool and hot tub and free continental breakfast. The downside is that there are at least a dozen vehicles that cannot be moved due to flat tires, blue tarps, or other conditions. The police were here several times. Many of the people do not keep their sites clean and there are moldy straw bales probably used during the winter around the rigs. The free continental breakfast is marginal. There are 3 parks in Ellensburg and we would rate this as our 3rd choice. We will not stay here again unless it is cleaned up. - rolling homeless

Rate based on monthly stay. We were here for 3 months and if not such a hassle, we would have left for another park. A lot of full time residents and broken down trailers. A lot of very creepy tenants and people even sleeping in cars. How is it this is rated at 9.5 at GoodSam? This is why it is hard to determine a good park when they are rated like this.
A whole lot of freeway noise and worst of all, the wifi is absolutely horrible. If you need wifi, even for a brief time, forget it here.
Lots of overflowing trash cans. They have a single dumpster when they need three. So as trash pickup day approaches, you have a mound of stinky trash around the dumpster.
Many parks around here with much better facilities, go there.

We only stayed one night at the Ellensburg KOA, but were very impressed. The grounds were beautiful and clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. Loves, Fred Meyer, Safeway and several good restaurants were all just a few minutes away yet we felt removed from the town and the park was quiet. There were no real amenities at the park itself (it's a Journey.) We would definitely stay here again - and longer! - WanderingGants

Super clean and very well maintained, especially for the end of the season. Very close to I-90, so that's a good thing, but if staying in a tent, I'm sure you would hear it, but for us in a trailer, it didn't matter one bit. Store is open until 8pm, but that will be closing sooner I'm sure, so call ahead if much after my review. - S Prescott

The staff is friendly and helpful. The park is clean and neat. The roads and sites are on the tight side. All the services worked well and the WiFi is superior. - 2WArvers

As others have written, very nice but basic BLM campground. Site #1 was perfect for our 35' motorhome - we drove the "wrong way" in order to pull into site so we could see the water. As the area is very dry (sagebrush), having paved road and sites is very helpful. Reservations needed for sites with view but there are 4 sites for 1st come, 1st served. Most are level, all with picnic table and fire pits. No water is available; come with water tank full and waste empty. We did cross the road, near the tent camping area and hike up the hill. We did not see any, but this area could have rattlesnakes - just a word of caution. Big Pine is largest campground along Yakima River, but Umtanum BLM has a few sites for RVs that are gravel, not paved. Umtanum is a few miles towards Ellensburg and has a bridge across the river with a nice trail along the creek. Overall, excellent value and most scenic of Yakima or Ellensburg parks. - BandD

A nice overnight or in our case, almost a week. Immediately off the highway, sites and roads are paved. Only the first few sites have a view of the river and shade and one side of the campground is next to the highway but traffic is minimal at night. To make us fulltime rv'ers feel at home there is a train across the river but no horns. Several sites for big rigs and swing room should not be an issue. We did have to dodge some curbs backing into our site but that was self inflicted because we wanted a river view. There are no utilities and no water, only pit toilets. As another reviewer mentioned, nothing to do in the immediate are but fish or read a good book. No Verizon. - PBuds

This BLM campground is located right on the Yakima River, sandwiched between the highway and the river and a railroad on the other side. Traffic died down at night and there was only one train rumbling through about every two hours.
The sites are all paved and very level. Some are very large. Most are in the open sun, only a few are somewhat shaded. Reasonable space between the sites which offers some privacy. We were surprised to find this campground well booked (most sites are reservable) for the upcoming weekend. Well, it was fishing season and there is a boat launch right from the campground.
Pit toilets are available but we couldn't locate a water tap.
Overall excellent value for money and we will stay again. - TheSchweitzers

Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Invited to a potluck and movie night when we arrived. Gated park which is always nice. Sites are dirt/grass but our site was very level. Did not have to disconnect. - CindyK

This beautiful park has new owners as of April 2017. The new owner and managers really cleaned up this park and added a dog park, a secure RV storage lot and remodeled the RV essentials store on site. They cleaned up the campsites, made the sites level, added WiFi, created a secure gated entrance, created dry camping areas around the pond and have plans to expand. It's a popular park with RV travel clubs who can use the clubhouse for potlucks and gatherings. It's a family friendly park with outdoor movies on weekends in the summer. We loved the trail along the river & fly fishing right there in camp. It was a great stay! - Jean Rankin

Pull thru, roomy in trees. Good location to activities. - Retired Rvers2

The 3 weeks we were there the men's bathroom garbage was overflowing the entire time since it was never emptied, and 1 toilet was leaking and instead of fixing it they taped it off. There is nothing special about this place. There seems to be junk every where. Welcome sign says manager cabin 6 when it actually a trailer. (very confusing). WiFi was horrible at best, and the basic TV only 4 channels came in clear. No bulletin board with local activities. - RVLifer1962

Stayed here for an overnight when all 3 travel stops we planned to go to were full. Called at 6pm and they had space available.
Check-in process a bit confusing, if arriving after hours (?) you drive into the campground and go to cabin #6 (the owner's cabin) and they'll set you up from there. $22 gets you water and electric, no fuss no muss. Laundry and shower house are available, but we never used them. Hookups were easy and site was level. There is minimal road noise from State Rd 10, but we did hear a train a few times at night (nothing after we went to bed). Owner has said that there are a few sites saying that this campground has closed, but it's definitely open for business.
Campground appears to be mostly permanent residents, but never felt uneasy while walking around. This is a great option given the average cost in the area for a site ($35+) and the popularity (read: zero available spots) of truck stops in the area. We would stay here again for sure. - LanderWust

This campground is approx. 10 miles north of Virden on the 97. We stayed in a double site ($26.00 without Golden Age Pass)just so we could be on the creek. We stayed in 2-3 which is a beautiful lush green camp site with wildflowers everywhere. This area is located to the right of the pay station but be careful, there is no room to turn around if you are towing a car. I would walk it first to make sure that you will be able to get out ok. There is water and garbage service. This campground would be heaven if it wasn't so close to the highway but we did find that the road noise calmed down around 9pm. You can take on water near the picnic area which is on the right when you first come into the campground. You will need a water thief since the spigot is not threaded. A single site runs $13.00 a night. We would use it as a stop over again. - jannie5

I read the last review and it sounds like the park is going downhill. There was still no sod and mostly dirt. No cable TV or Internet and the staff was less than helpful.(Friends called to tell us they were having problems and while the staff knew we were worried as we had gone up to ask a number of times, when the call came they couldn't walk down the 100 yards to tell us. They remembered the next day.) Price was a bit steep for the limited service. River sites have no sewer so you have to use the dump, which is OK. The pull-through sites were right by the dump and the smell was a bad so I don't recommend that you stay in any of them or insist that you stay on the west side. It's about 20 miles from town and about the only place in the area. West are some National Parks and east are some small dry campgrounds. - Desertthorn

Not a bad campground. Lots of sites right on Naches river. It is under new ownership and there have obviously been some improvements. The gassy areas were sodded and very green and lush. In between the sites was dirt, however I spoke to the owner and he said that they were in the process of sodding those areas. The campground was clean and the grounds were well maintained. The showers were a little run down but clean and free. There was 1 trash can for about every three sites and they were emptied daily. The pool was very nice, heated, and well landscaped. All campsites had fire pits and tables. Propane and fuel available, including diesel. There is a restaurant on site. We did not eat there but there is outside seating with a view of the pool. Little store was remarkably well stocked with essentials. We would camp here again. - Mike and Ronda
