We found this RV park to be very nice, clean and quiet (a train once in a while). There is a ton of space between each site, which is SO nice to have because most parks cram you in like sardines. The sites are gravel with patches of (green) grass in between. I say 'green' because it has been so dry everywhere we've been in Washington that 'green' was a pleasant surprise. Utilities were placed well and worked fine. We were parked on the back row next to a pasture of horses and cows. It was very pleasant and relaxing. Wifi even worked pretty good. Although this was a delightful park we felt we were handed pages of rules. All, or most, of these rules are standard and common courtesy, but to have them all written out so that when you look at the page you wonder if you're allowed to sit outside or put your awning out. Of course you are, but the you get the drift. The other thing that was cumbersome was the entry gate. It's one of those gates that you put in a code and sit there for a few minutes while it opens sideways. There are quite a few speed bumps at the entrance where that gate is so don't get caught in it while easing over the speed bumps. The park is out in the country and near a relatively small town. I don't understand the need for this mega security gate that is in the way. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is now a gated RV park which has drawbacks when you have visitors. Check in time is 1:00 which means you may have to wait somewhere like we did as our last park was only 1 hour away and we had to be checked out of there by 11. However, it is a clean, well maintained park and close to Ellensburg. We would stay here again as we have family here. The spaces are wider than in years past which is very nice. Great camp hosts.

Newer park with limited sewer hookups and small trees. Nice pull through sites with 50 amp service, level gravel pads, and grass between each site. Located next to the Yakima River in a scenic valley. Two nice sized grassy dog parks and a field. Expect lots of wind in the afternoons in Ellensburg. There is a dump site down the road. 5.00 for second dog. I would stay here again. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The RV park is in a flood plain, so it is not permitted for dump site or showers/rest rooms, but is serviced by porta-toilets that are cleaned regularly. There is a city dump site two miles north of the park that has a large turnaround and water available. The sites are 36'x70' in the partial service area and have picnic tables and fire pits. There are rodeo bulls in the field, and a wonderful view of the Stuart Mountains to the north, and a very short walk to the river. The park has been expanded so all sites are large and roomy. Prices were at or below other parks in the area, and is well maintained. Camp workers are very friendly and show you to your site. The roads are gravel, but wide enough to navigate with the largest of RVs. Train crossing is about a half mile away, but noise is not obtrusive. Will definitely stay here whenever we travel the I-90. Make reservation, as park tends to get busy in the summer, especially on weekends. An office just opened, so stop at the office to register/check in. Gate closes at 9:00 PM to prevent late arrivals from waking you up in the night-time hours. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed one night on our way out of the Seattle area. The camp host met us at entrance and pre-paid check-in took about a minute using a smart phone. He was friendly and guided us to our P/E only site. Gravel roads and site. Level and very wide with a wide grass separation. WiFi was slow. Only noticed the trains once. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 3 nights. I think it is the best park in the area. It is a very clean park with grass and trees around you. We chose a site with the full hookups. It was $3 a night more but well worth it. We originally were only going to stay two nights but could not find another decent park near where we were going. I would highly recommend this park if you are anywhere near this area. There is a train track but never were bothered by loud noise. Whistle seemed to stop at night. Sites are fairly close but the way they are situated works well. Would definitely pick this park if in the area again. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed a quick overnight on our way to Seattle based on the previous reviews. Ditto to previous reviews. Camp host met us at entrance, very friendly and helpful, and indicated that credit card was okay even though we offered cash. However only one person was allowed to do the credit cards and that is apparently the owner. We were told she would come by our trailer as soon as she returned from a day of swimming. Didn't show up until after 8 p.m. and then preferred cash due to the cc paperwork and also that we had already gotten half off. Other than that it is a pleasant, clean, handy place to stay even without the sewern bathrooms, or showers. The trains did not present a problem to us. Only heard one horn all night. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

CG manager was very congenial and helpful; can't say enough positive things about her. However, a commercial campground that does not have restrooms and showers should not be charging the same amount as those that do. They do have 3 port-o-johns instead of bathrooms. Ugh!

How she can tell a 0.5 mph she must have special powers. Owner was friendly as with the rest of the crew No sewer in the newer part who knows why??

You never know what you're going to get with Passport America but this was probably the nicest PA park we've visited. Very very level. I would have given it a 10 but they advertise FHU but the guy told us no sewer when he brought us to our lot. This was the new section so they might not have sewer hooked up yet. And no cable. Beautiful park. Easy to find. You will hear trains though. Also, we were told they would not be PA next year. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground frequently does not receive the high ratings that it deserves- because there are no showers or bathrooms. Typically, the rigs and campers are large enough to be self-contained. In the event there are people who would like to tent camp, there are very clean port-a-potties. The grounds are well-maintained and the sites are very large with a picnic table and fire ring. The Yakima River is close by and it is a very peaceful setting. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ellensburg is is cute college town. Many shops and restaurants. We attended a 3-day jazz and blues festival and the music was amazing! It is always the last weekend in July. This was the 20th year for this festival and it is extremely well-run. Fishing on the Yakima River is prefect for fly fishing. Our favorite restaurant is The Porch.

This is a very pretty, well thought out rv park. We stayed in an area that had just been finished last week. 50 amp, decent water pressure, no sewer or dump station and I never saw a dumpster for our garbage on the way out either. As others have said, you do a self checkin, but when we arrived the owner was at the kiosk and assisted us. She is very nice, and the only thing we didn't like was when she said we were early (12:11 instead of 1 pm) and they were going to have to start charging for early arrivals. (Lots of vacancies and the telephone recording said there were plenty of spaces and to come on in, so we did....plus we left shortly after 9 instead of the 11 am checkout time.). Anyhow, we liked the way the sites were laid out so we had afternoon shade. LOTS of noisy trains day and night blowing their horns like crazy were the only thing we didn't like about this park. The pads were dirt and level and interior roads were gravel. We also got lots of channels on our antenna. Wifi showed up, but unable to be connected to. The owner said there are more improvements to come and he was constantly working in the park. Lots of new trees, so I imagine that will be nice as they mature. We camped at Yakima River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Go into Ellensburg, a pretty, little, very neat looking town. Avoid the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant though...we went The and the service was so bad we left after we couldn't get service at our table. Others were waiting also. DO go to The Palace Cafe just a few blocks up the street. Very nice restaurant, good service and good food. When we left the park, our GPS took us down a road to the next interstate and the entrance was closed...had to backtrack 5 miles to get onto I-82eastbound.
