We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting friends in Ellensburg. We liked that it's off the highway and quiet, yet close to everything in Ellensburg. Staff was friendly and helpful. We parked in the section with W/E only, but there's a free dump station just up the road across for the Conoco station operated 24/7 by the city of Ellensburg. Our sites were grass and very spacious. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Have stayed here twice in two years with a group of mature fly fishermen. We rent 2 rv sites and 2 tent sites. The rv sites are extremely close. You share one dump connection with the rv next door (2 hookups). The rv next to mine did not have a connector as required.

The owners and camp hosts are particularly unfriendly. They come by several times a night to see if you are doing anything wrong. We will find some other place next year.

Mosquitos! There is an old manure pit next to the entrance road. I suspect all of the mosquitos are are there. Don't forget your DEET and citronella.

Many trains pass by in the night. Each blows a horn at the crossing ~1/4 mile away.

Bovines in the field next to the site. Some years they are quite obnoxious. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a stop over for us, $31.50 with GS discount. Even # sites are P/W only, odd # sites are P/W/S but must stay a 2 night min. Level gravel sites but you have to un-hook and park your tow vehicle away from your site. A short distance (2 miles) off the main highway so there is no road noise. 2 porta johns, no other shower/restrooms. They offered free Wi-Fi but we didn't use it. Camp hosts that greeted us were friendly. A nice little park, good for an overnight stop. We would stay here again. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice off-the-beaten-path RV park. The campground host and the owners (who both came out to say hello) are cordial and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay here. The full hook-up sites are a bit on the tight side, but doable. If you're planning a shorter stay and don't need sewer, there are three sites at the back of the park by the farmhouse that are very nice.

We were in site 34, which was plenty big for our 40 footer and had great shade in the afternoon.

All sites are 50-amp, and the water pressure was just fine. There are no bathrooms or showers (except porta-potties for the tenters). The WiFi is free and worked well. If you are self-contained and don't want to be right next to the freeway, this is a great option. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was fine for one night. They were very flexible with moving dates due to mechanical issues with RV and parking the RV kind of sticking out so that I didn't have to unhook. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Interesting location on working ranch so you can see horses and cattle. They have two fenced in dog areas and are very fussy about not letting dogs go to bathroom anywhere other than those two areas.

Having seen some of the negative reviews, we approached with trepidation. No need for trepidation, this is a great CG. Greeted immediately by host, coached where to go and what to do. Yes sites are close but we have seen much worse. CG is quiet, pretty, comfortable and most enjoyable. Value is excellent. Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a large 5th wheel.

This is self-contained only campground. There are no restrooms or showers. The only place to "go" are two porta potties. Staff is extremely friendly and grounds are beautiful. Good for a one night stop and they offer a Passport America discount during the week. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The first 3 nights are Passport America at $21 and from then on $42. It is a very clean and well maintained park. Owner is very friendly and hosts do a good job. There are porta potties in the park area. It is convenient for us for meeting with family so that is why we stay there. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Camped in a 37 ft Class A with a toad. Pull through space. good place for an overnight, close to the Yakama River (trout, catch and release). Gets fishermen and river rafters. Had tent space but only 1 portapotty. Don't want to repeat other reviews, site would have been close if anyone else had parked next to us. 30 amp service, Didn't hook up anything but electricity. Very tall trees surround park, no Sat service if you are on the south side. No shade in the center during the day. Would stay there again if passing through,but there are probably nicer places for a longer stay. Check out the public forest service camping on the Yakama.

Tips for other Campers:

Ellensburg has a decorated barn trail to follow, nice way to see the area. Fishing on the Yakama. Rafting too, good pull out spot just downriver from the camp site. Just down the road at I-82 is a good truckstop, food & gas, RV parking.

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.

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.

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.
