As mentioned in another post, be ready to have your rig looked at inside and out. They have good security on this base and don't allow large rigs on base that have not been searched. If you don't have anything to hide, this shouldn't be a bother. This is not a resort by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a great place to hang your hat while visiting Spokane and/or passing through the area. It is quiet (near the AFB tarmac, but not bothersome) and clean. The visual isn't great because it has been so painfully dry in the area that there is no grass left. What was there is dead and makes it look really bad. Weather conditions are not the fault of the park or the hosts so I didn't take any points off for that. The Wifi was slow but usable. As a whole the sites are very close together. There are a few that have a little more space and we were lucky enough to get a wider site, which was very comfortable. We would stay there again. - jomark

A convenient stop along I-90 and close to shopping and casinos. On entering through the commercial gate, expect to be told to open all bays, doors, hood, trunk, and wait in a separate area while your RV and vehicle are searched. No exceptions, so if this bothers you, go somewhere else. A friendly and helpful host greeted us, but the only thing attractive about the Famcamp itself is the price. Gravel interior and sites that are mostly level and just long enough for our motor home and tow, closely spaced and with a sewer hookup in the far rear of the site. WiFi was slow, but it was windy during our stay, and Verizon Cell/Data was good. Lots of OTA TV and no few obstructions to the TV satellites. Train noise can be very loud at night, something that seems to be worse than in past visits. Overall a great value due to the location, but not a destination park. - Meanderman

This is my second year as camphost at Fairchild, and we absolutely love the grounds. The weather is beautiful, it is very quiet, and access to Spokane is easy. Fairchild has been a work in progress, but we are pleased at the updates! Please remember when camping at an RV park, many hosts are not paid 24/7, so utilizing the phone to ask questions is great if they are not on site (new phone!). - Camphost16

Not exactly sure on the price as we reserved through Coast To Coast and didn't do the math! Nice park. This is a membership park and we stayed via Coast to Coast 26-29Jul. Our spot was a pull through but I didn't think I'd be able to turn out without dragging the side of my coach (45') through some trees inside the turn. So I backed out which was no problem. Good level site with room on both sides. Satellite hookup wasn't a problem and Verizon signal was adequate. Wifi available in the office. Good facilities. Pool looks beautiful. We would stop again when passing through Cheney. - SHIPM8

This is a membership RV resort with a lot of amenities and very kid friendly. It is older and showing it's age, but is well kept, clean, and quiet. Roads are a combination of asphalt and gravel. Sites are packed dirt, with a little grass. Picnic table at each site. All hookups worked well and are convenient. A lot of trees for shade. Sites are close together with not much privacy. All the utilities worked well and are convenient. ATT and Verizon worked well. Showers and rest rooms are clean and well maintained, however 2 or the 3 men's showers were closed. . Pool, hot tub, weight room and sauna are clean and inviting. The kids are ever present. Laundry open 24 hrs, there are 8 each washers and dryers - $1.25 to wash, $ .25 for 5 min to dry. Employees are courteous and friendly. Pricey if not a member. Would stay again. - Pacatrader

Favorite place near Spokane, WA. We've stayed here each time we come to Cheney and the Spokane area. It's a great "rest stop" after leaving Seattle, when heading east. The park has lots of well-trimmed trees, allowing for clearance for high motor-homes and 5th-wheel trailers. The trees are trimmed high also to accommodate satellite receivers. The park has many pull-through sites with full hook-ups. Park is well-maintained, with a pool, recreation areas, miniature golf, playgrounds, etc. and the staff plans many weekend activities to keep campers busy. All that aside, it is also a very quiet place to just hang out. Many sites have nice lawns, shady trees and picnic tables. The roads are gravel, as are the sites, and driving through with any size rig rates from easy to manageable, depending on the length of your RV. It has good access to shopping in Cheney, and nearby Eastern Washington University, and to Spokane, or even Coeur d'Alene in nearby Idaho. WiFi is average for most parks, but doesn't reach all the sites. They charge for WiFi and for cable (Dish Network satellite) TV. T-Mobile service was marginal at the campground. As you head up Thomas Mallen Road, the entrance is the SECOND DRIVEWAY you come to (with the big rock). The first with a gate, is the exit. - Richbald

We stayed here overnight, twice. The facilities were clean. The RV sites are paved and level. - L Langman

Could be a great place to go for the weekend! But the government employees do little to keep up the resort except mow and water. The buildings playgrounds and docks are nice, but the milfoil has infested this section of the lake and they do nothing to control it like the rest of the lake residents. And there are geese droppings everywhere you walk! The spots are okay...but could be wider. If your neighbor has slides be prepared to keep your awning in! - W. Bates

We needed a place to stay for one night only and this was located just outside of Spokane near the airport. The location was convenient, however for the price, it was really not a great place to stay. It's actually a motel with 2 small RV parks behind it. The motel has a cabin-like look to them on the exterior and looked clean and homey from the road. One of the RV areas is for older RV's. It looked like there were several long term residents parked there. We stayed in the area which was reserved for newer RV's. They said there was a pull-through lot, but we didn't see one. It only had maybe 7 spots or so, but you would be crammed in tight together if it was full. We happened to be in there with only one other RV, so it was relatively private that particular night. A plus about the park is it is in amongst the trees, so it has the feel of not being right in or around a city, but there is absolutely no privacy from space to space. The mosquitoes were horrible while we were there and we couldn't eat outside at all. They said they had Wi-Fi, which was part of why we were willing to pay the higher price, however it was very spotty and didn't come in much at all, a big disapointment. I am not sure we would stay there again. The spaces were also pretty uneven, I can't imagine parking a really large RV there. We were in a 28 foot travel trailer and it was difficult to even it up. - User804

Riverside State Park apparently has different sites; we stayed at Bowl and Pitcher campground in our 36' Class A, with water and electric. Along with the camp fee, there is an $8 reservation and $5 out of state fee. While we enjoyed our site, right on the river, and extremely spacious in the pines, the fee seemed a tad high. We won't be back though because there is a very narrow road with drop offs to the river, Downriver Drive, that you have to take to get to the park. At one point another coach came at us and I had to pull over, almost touching the cliff face, and his wheels were right on the edge. Plan your approach if coming from I-90. Exit 181 will take you through town and a neighborhood. Exit 180 is a bit better. Exit 277 is the best bet to avoid congestion. - Vegas Trippers

Review for Riverside State Park - 9 Mile Recreation Area. Cost includes all fees. Unusual little park off the beaten path. Small sign right at the entrance road, so watch for it! This park is popular with fishermen and locals, so a lot of day usage. They have a few FHU sites but most are W&E. The on way road in is gravel and passes thru the pine trees. Great views of the river! Very few campers mid week. - jnateg

This was a nice little park for an overnight stay, although a little off the beaten path from I-90. But $58.00 is too steep which includes $5.00 non resident deposit and $8.00 for entrance fee. $39.00 a night would have been more in line for the quality provided. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, the scenery was nice, and the restrooms were adequate. - Colorado Vagabond

At the outset we have to say this is one of the nicest parks we've ever stayed at. It's in a beautiful setting in a nice little town. The management is beyond superb and worked some crazy magic to find accommodation for us during a peak time and for a much longer period than we first booked for. So appreciated! All facilities and utilities were wonderful and the wifi excellent. Now for the unusual event that took place... this park is next to some wilderness areas and one evening a wildfire blew up very close and very quickly. We were evacuated on short notice. The staff sprang into action immediately and orchestrated a park-wide evacuation that was calm and organized. They followed up several times by phone and in person and even drove around the town of Cheney to find us all and direct everyone to a central location (the rodeo grounds had opened to accommodate displaced RVs. Everyone in the town rallied to assist including Safeway management). We can't adequately express our thanks to the staff. They are first class people and outstanding managers. Our entire stay was wonderful and we look forward to returning again at some point. - roadtripper4ever

Earlier this year, I left a review of this park that was critical of the service and our placement within the park. About a month later, we were called back to Cheney as our daughter was seriously ill and we needed to stay there for an unknown amount of time. I called the owners of Peaceful Pines and explained the situation to them. They could not have been more accommodating to us. They worked with us to get us the best nightly rate and we only had to move locations once, even though we were there almost a month. This experience was much better than the last. We would now recommend this park to anyone wanting to stay in Cheney, or to be near Spokane. - Essiegirl

To be fair, I was made aware that there were RR tracks about 200 yds behind the camp. However, trains pass virtually every 30-60 minutes, all day and night. Peaceful Pines it is not!! The park, minus the trains, is a bit over priced. We only stayed for one night and will not return. - Brian D

Tight entrance; ok for our 30', don't know if I would try a 40'...friendly staff; freeway noise but no problem inside coach; full h/up and good WiFi included, great location if you want to be near the city, decent value for your $$, would stay again. - Buck44

The owners of this place have put some money in and made some improvements! The "perms" are either gone or were made less obvious somehow. The RV park is behind a vintage bungalow motel. The grass and flowers in the center of the "RV circle" were very pretty. I must give one "heads up" for one major driving issue. If the motel is full, and there are lots of cars, you have to play "thread the needle" to weasel your RV through the cars to get to the RV section. I held my breath and I'm in a Class C! I'd hate to watch Class A's do this, although there were some Class A's here during my stay. Also, the sites are rather close together. So, if you stay here, just hope your neighbors are decent. The owners are very nice and will help you get in your space, as it's a bit tight weaseling around the RV section. I didn't use the WiFi or cable, so can't comment. The $39 I paid is with taxes and Good Sam discount. Yes, a bit pricey for what you get. But the location is good if you are attending an event at the Fairgrounds, or if you want access to mass transit. There are other RV parks in Spokane area along Sprague Avenue, but. Let's just say this is your best option if you want to be in Spokane and not in the outlying areas. - DXSMac

One night, just passing through on a Monday in late June. Called 509 477-2770 to ask if the campground was open. The person I spoke with was very helpful. To my knowledge, there was no special event in progress. As others have observed: this is a large grassy area with water and electric pedestals marking camping spots. There are only eight official pull through sites. Since there were only three other campers we made our own pull through. - Jim1924

I reviewed this park almost a year ago to the day, and a few changes that I need to talk about that were on the positive side.
The dust wasn't nearly as bad in the camping area because they had watered it and the grass/weeds were actually green and mowed. This made for a more dust controlled environment.
The maintenance workers and so forth for the fairgrounds, still raced through the gravel area and they could've slowed down a little bit more for a more dust controlled environment.
But overall our stay was pleasant. The 50 amp power worked great. The water pressure you definitely need a regulator, runs at about 95 psi. The dump area was clean overall.
I'll come back if need be.
Just drive in slow, and exit slow for the enjoyment of others. - monaco cruiser

Stayed 5 nights. No one else there. Just a cheap place to stay near downtown. Easy off ramp off I-90. - Dan Md
Oct 2018 - $60.00
Yes, it's new, paved, and spotless, just like a Walmart parking lot. The token patches of grass do nothing to soften the effect. The sites are close together. The opposing pull-thrus that share middle utilities are especially close. The back-ins are a joke. Unless you have a truck camper or short motor home or van, you won't fit. There is no accommodation for late check-ins. If you come after hours your water is locked off and the baths and showers are locked and you have no WiFi. Also, this park is on a noisy, busy highway. My wife found the traffic deafening. - whizbang

Well equipped relatively new park. Sites are close together, but concrete pads make setup easy. Traffic noise. Not close to freeway. Seemed pricey. - Wayne B41

We live in Mesquite NV. We have visited so many RV parks. From Georgia to Washington State. This is easily the cleanest location we have stayed. And all of the staff we have met are very nice. The dog walk is fenced, grass and very clean. Lots of games available. Horseshoes, Bocce Ball, etc. Very clean private showers, each with sink, toilet and oversized shower stall. Laundry room and activity room. If you like clean and extremely well cared for, you will love this park. This is our 2nd visit here and will definitely be staying here when we pass through again. This park is amazing. - Bondo Bob
