Camp host was there to assist in check in.. That was good. They offer discounts for some, but do not put that info up front.. Took the Good Sam at 10% but found out later I could have had a disabled vet discount at 20%. Not a problem, because I didn't expect any discount. As noted before, RV's are 6-8' apart and street side to street side. Small picnic table in between, but really not usable if slides are out. Restroom was one porta pot. Full service with a dump not available. Overall, park was clean and seemed friendly. However, value for the dollar spent with very tight spaces, it got an overall poor rating.. If passing through again, will probably look for a different park. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Truck Camper.
Reserved by email requesting one night with FHU. Not noted anywhere (website or Passport America notes) and we did not find out till we were almost there but FHU requires two day stay minimum. On arrival greeted by personable workcamper who had no notice of our reservations. Park anywhere except space 24 she says. No park map. Spaces really weird, with street side to street side parking, many with tables, fire pits and in one case a fence blocking entry. Our first choice shared water with existing 5th wheel but no double tap for our water. Finally settled for spot on the end. No way for our 38' to enter spot for correct location of utilities so we ran water and power under coach. All set up and ready to relax when owner shows up. Hey you can't park there. We had to disconnect everything and move. And Oh by the way don't park car in the space, park your car in the new car parking area on the far side of the park. We have been here before and felt like we got our monies worth. Not this time. Note: The train still is running. Otherwise a quiet place for an overnight stop. Did not comment on restrooms as the only thing available is a port-a-potty. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
River rafting, kayaking and maybe fishing about the only thing to do nearby. Park does offer shuttle service for kayaking which we did use on a previous visit.
We really like the country setting 3 miles off interstate and town. It was quiet and peaceful, neat and clean. We stayed here 2 nights with full hookups, which worked out good for us. There is no restroom and shower facility but we always use our own as most RVers do, so no problem there. The management was friendly and helpful. They located the RVs on every other space to give us more room and privacy. Tow or towed vehicles park in spaces away from sites. This is our second time here and we will return if we pass this way again. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Wind farm tours nearby. Quilt pattern on barns map in area. We attended the dachshund parade and races last time we were here in June which was a hoot.

Good park for an overnight with easy access from I-90. Park is clean and Wi-Fi works very well. If you have a large rig with slides, take care not to hit tall water spigot. Rate is Passport America plus $5 for second dog. Park is very concerned about dogs relieving themselves anywhere but in the fenced dog area. So much so that we felt uncomfortable and carried our dogs to the fenced area. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.
If not for the PA rate of $22, we would not have even stayed the night. We were told we "didn't need" sewer as we were only staying one night even tho sites with sewer were available. Pull thrus but so tight we had to ask neighbor to pull in their awning in order for us to park. Our slides pretty much touched theirs. Door side was very close to other neighbor who luckily wasn't there. No sewer but also NO bathhouses for showers, only a single portapotty! Would not even consider stopping here again We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a quiet well maintained park. The setting is alongside a cattle ranch in the farm country side about Ellensburg, WA. While the park does not have the amenities such as a swimming pool, it offers a location for a quiet stay. It is a location where families meet. The tenting areas are separate from the RV sites, and this gives the tent campers shade and more remote location. The park is also in a close location to access of the Yakima River. The graphic interface for the review mandates I put a rate in, but that is a one night rate. Weekly rates and membership discounts are available. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty park out in the country with cows, bulls, and horses in the fields next to the park. Roads inside the park are gravel and the sites are gravel and grass. It was a very quiet park during our stay. However, we have an RV so we can travel comfortably with our furbaby. We are very responsible pet owners that keep our dog on a leash when outside, pick up after our dog, and keep him as quiet as possible. We did not feel free to even sit outside or walk with our dog here because we were afraid he would relieve himself somewhere other than the potty pen. (There are several posters on trees and it even states in their rules that dogs are to relieve themselves in the potty pens). This is the first time we have ever felt uncomfortable in a RV park and for that reason we would not ever return to this park. It is also the reason for the low score. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.
Rate cited is based on Passport America for 3 days and if you stay a 4th day or longer the rate increased to $42. This is a well maintained and quiet park located south of Ellensburg. There are fields with bulls and horses. The sites are gravel and we have a pull-through with 50 amp. There are no bathrooms or showers but there is a portable outhouse in the park. We have stayed here before and will stay here again as it is convenient to family. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport America rate. Very nice little park away from interstate and any noise. Clean sites, and surrounded by cattle and beautiful horses. Owners were very nice and came by to talk with us for a while about their travels. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Went with middle of the road for this small but clean and level gravel pad park. Accepts Good Sam and Passport America so we paid $17.50 which was what it is worth for a no frills park. We had water and electric hook-up only, port-a-potties near-by, no showers, no place for groups to meet, limited fire pits, tables, and a few trees. Surrounded by cows and horses so it has the scent of a farm. Train could be seen and heard from our site, TV and WiFi worked fine but we do have a booster. It's not really what I would call dog friendly as we were asked to have our pug potty only in the pet area. We requested a site next to the area so she wouldn’t have to hold it until she reached the potty area. Not sure that older dogs could hold it long enough to make it to the “area” if you stayed at the far ends. We would stay here again for an overnight but only if we could stay close to the “area” as our pug is our fur baby. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice place to stay. It is well maintained and the host and owners are friendly. They have a sani for use by the people and no showers that I know of. We will stay here again. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here three nights at the Passport America rate of $17.50 for the non-sewer rate. We enjoyed our stay. The Free Wi-Fi worked very well. There are campground hosts here now. Payment is self pay at entrance. There is a reservation board at entrance showing the reserved sites. No restrooms or showers. One row of parking sites are sewer, electric and water. The other row is without sewer. Normal rates are $35-non-sewer and $42 with sewer. If you have a very large--over 40'-- maneuvering and parking will take some care. There is a free dump at the city sewer facility about 2 miles N of the RV Park, 0.2 miles S of I-90. Would stay again. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was just an overnight stop. The bad rating is heavily weighed upon their restrictive dog walk policy. Priced at $35 for a water/electric site, and $42 for a FHU site. This is way too much money for this bare bones park. Accepts Good Sam and Passport America, so we only paid $17.50 which is all it was worth. A friendly atmosphere, but sites are close together and piggy back, although they did try to put rigs in every other site. Only a port-a-potty. Free WiFi which worked well. Lots of rafting on the nearby Yakima River. Dogs allowed, but only allowed to do their business in the enclosed 75' x 35' dog area. There are signs all over this small park stating this is not a dog area. It's a nice area with fields surrounding the park with cattle and very friendly horses. But noooo, your dog can't do its business anywhere but the designated area. Ridiculous. That is the reason for the only low rating. Would be a nice cozy social park to stay at if they would lighten up about the dogs. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for an overnighter between destinations. The owners were very helpful to point out interesting sights to see that we're close by. The sites are okay. I would not call it a pet friendly campground, better described as pet tolerant. You can't walk your dog inside the campground and we were asked to prevent our dog from using the grass for ANY business, which is fine, but it is difficult to explain to your dog that he has to wait until you walk across the park to the dog walk, before he can lift his leg. Quiet campground, close to the canyon. OK for one night. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.
