Rate reflects Passport America discount. This is a mobile home park with the ability and desire to rent to RVers. In fact, there is a large sign on the road, "RV Park". It is off the road a ways down a rough dirt/gravel driveway. It is an old mobile home park that has many empty spaces. Paved road, gravel spots. Some, like ours, have covered parking for your car/truck. At first glance, I didn't like it much, but after staying there a couple of nights while we saw the dam, it really wasn't so bad. The manager is very nice and helpful. Not pool or any of those amenities, not even cable or Wi-Fi, but for us that didn't really matter for a couple of nights while sightseeing. The location is great. We probably would stay here again if in the area. The rate is right and it is for unlimited stay. P.S., don't miss the laser show at the dam. It is amazing. - Kalama Traveler

This CG is NOT Big Rig friendly. We have a 36' long, wide body motor home and we got tree scratches driving thru this CG. A couple of sites might work for a 40' clunker you don't care about. But this CG is on a side hill and sites are far from level. The upper loop is good for up to 25' RV's or so, but we did see one MH that backed in until his rear tires hit the curb. They were 38' long or so. But no tag axle. The bottom loop, has the larger sites, it may say 40' on the reservation system, forget about it if you have a nice rig. Large boulders are used to define the sites. This makes opening compartment doors impossible. Trees overhang the interior road and on most sites, good for shade in small units, but not good for big rigs. Good cell and broadband coverage, no OTA TV reception. There were host's on duty, but we never saw them do anything. Our site had the expired camping permit from the previous campers making it appear occupied, plus trash in the fire ring and debris here and there on the site. Not the best NPS CG we have been to. Usually NPS hosts are right on top of things. - Bob and Inga

Federal NRA campground with so-so camp hosts; more interested in ensuring I filled out the response card than assisting with site selection. Most sites require some leveling and some even more so. Paved roads but gravel and/or dirt sites. Although they do not list pull thrus, we were able to utilize one that was evidently designed to park a car or truck for tenters. Not many sites occupied, perhaps a combination of Sunday, school restarting and a good deal of fire smoke (so much that I left the next morning and headed south!). Rest rooms basic but clean; also a pit toilet on the opposite side of the campground. A room with a utility sink is also available, most likely for cleaning fish, cooking utensils, etc. No official showers but I found you can go down to the beach area and use the outdoor rinse off shower for a quick clean. No hook ups but water spigots spaced throughout. Interestingly, there are still pay phones in a few locations, and they work! Lots of yellow jackets flying around and other, not so lucky ones, stuck in those hanging traps. Quail and deer traipsed through the campground in the early evening and morning. Ok if you're using the marine recreational opportunities of the lake or if you are a good dry camper. The full hook up sites are closer to the Grand Coulee dam. - pyrthkr

This is definitely a one-nighter. Mostly permanents with 1 or 2 spots for overnights. The office is across the street. The park is a strip of land next to the road and some houses behind it. There is the town's only laundromat in the park. Spots are pretty tight, especially with our 33 ft. fifth wheel. The park does offer a free ride to and from to see the light show at the dam after dark. They did have all utilities and cable. The staff was friendly. - Dr. Hemlock

This is fine for an overnight stay. The site was fine but short. We have a very small travel trailer (16 ft including tongue) and when we unhooked and drove a foot ahead, we were nosing into the driveway. Picnic table was clean, grass was mowed. A very nice man came and knocked on our door to invite us to take the shuttle to the laser show. Some of the full time residents' RVs are old and ramshackle. It is right beside Hwy 174. But on the whole it was fine. - Magpie

This is a strange small park near the Grand Coolee dam. The park is a small strip of land between the road and housing with two lines of short back-in spaces (either backed towards the road or the houses). Check-in is across the street at a motel (there is parking on the street for check-in). We booked a pull-thru spot - the manager walked across the street and took down a plastic fence so that we could pull over the curb and into a back-in space. Most of the park is filled with permanent residents with a few short term spaces. We were a little concerned about security but had no problems. Everybody very friendly.
We chose this park because of its proximity to the Grand Coolee dam. The town seemed very depressed and run down but the dam is still very cool.
The park offered a shuttle to the light show at the dam and the park has the only laundromat in town (typical laundromat customers coming and going).
We would probably choose a nicer park on our next trip through the area. - lyzzards

50 amp, FHU site, good WIFI, no cable anymore, no OTA TV signals available. Owner very helpful and knowledgeable about area. Guidance to site. If you are up in the highest sites on the hill,l the only dumpster is down near the office. - Bob & Stephanie

We stayed for a week and got a little discount. The owner was very helpful. It's just a large gravel parking lot without any shade and a lot of gravel was tracked in to the RV. Nice view from the park. We'd probably stay here again. - Trackman

Super close to the dam, would definitely stay here again. Arrived on a Sunday without a reservation and was easily accommodated. It appears to be an older park that has had some new expansions. As another reviewer mentioned, there are three levels with the permanents and overnighters separated which I really like. Staff was super attentive and very knowledgeable about the dam/area. We were escorted to our site and provided assistance in aligning in the site which I appreciate traveling just myself and my kiddos. There is a slight hill up to the overnight loop but any large 5th wheel or motorhome should easily fit. 2 different sewer hookups to choose depending on where your cleanout is located, 30 and 50amp service, cable, and excellent wifi. Sites are level for the most part, diagonally orientated, though close (but that's just the territory with an RV park) on crushed granite (sandy gravel). Utilities are on the correct side and though there is no shade, there is a picnic table on the awning/entrance side of the trailer which provided shade and was comfortable for sitting out in the evening. Great place for day-tripping, would stay again. - Jenrenee

This place is right next to a very busy highway. It's dirty, the campsites are very poorly maintained, and it's definitely not a 'resort' by any description. There is some shade, the site surface is dirt and it has a picnic table.
Thank goodness we were only here for one night! - Tech5709

We were given a dirt pull through site. There was no picnic table or shade. The electric & water connections were one one side of the trailer, the sewer connection was on the other side of the trailer. I had to run either the electric and water lines under the trailer or the sewer line under the trailer. It took a 1 inch board to level my trailer side to side. AT&T worked well, I was unable to hook up to WI-FI. Even though the site was a pull through, I had to back & maneuver to get my trailer in the site. Dust flew everywhere when ever a vehicle drove into the lot. I will never return. - travelcouple

Much too expensive for what you get. No discounts of any kind, even weekly. Park is geared toward local fishing activities. Sites are small & mostly dirt. What concrete pads there are are broken & uneven. Workers are friendly & helpful, but they don't have much to work with. Much too pricey. Will not return. - Gerry H

Where to start? This park wants to be so much and offer a lot but falls short so badly when it comes to RVers. It is not what I would consider to be a good RV park. They seem to be catering to the "under 35, wake board boat driving, jetski ridin', cheep beer drinkin' and only enough money after boat payments to afford a tent" crowd. RV sites as the last reviewer noted were laid out terribly. Only a handful of sites actually have "full" hookups the others are water and electricity only. Of those sites they only had 30 amp service. Most sites are grassy but unlevel or very hard to access, There are only about 10 good sites out of the 200? or so that they say they have that are acceptable to large RVs (over 33'). The shade is nice but also means you will have zero satellite availability. Oh yeah, and your cell phone won't work here either (I know that isn't the park's fault). Wi-Fi was very iffy and we were right across the street from the lodge. The dock was in fairly good shape but slip #3 which they put us in was broken in half, had exposed bolts sticking out from the patch job and the fenders put on the poles that keep the dock in place had slid down under water. For the $13/night (winter rate, $26 in the summer) rate for the dock slips this is inexcusable! Staff was friendly and the did move us to another slip right away. The on-site restaurant was fairly priced and the food was general "bar" fare, which was fine. My advice, if you have a large RV then keep on driving past this park. Oh, and one last thing. On weekends the "quiet hours" are from 12 midnight to 6 AM. Give me a break! I wouldn't even come here for a "guy's fishing" trip, way toooo expensive for that. - NwJeeper

This part is hard to rate. There are many likes and dislikes about it. We like the location and the fact that the park was pretty empty (after Labor Day). The boat launch and docks are in great shape. The restrooms are clean and the showers are fairly large. However, we have quite a few dislikes as well. The staff seemed more interested in relaxing after a busy season than helping. The campsites are not well laid out and most are not level. Some you can only access via other campsites and many RV sites have water on one side and power on the other. We've heard from multiple people this campground is a party zone during the busy season and the bar onsight supports that theory. Park rules are not enforced. There is only one bathroom for the entire campground, but plenty of outhouses. The new rental homes built look interesting, so if we return we'll rent one of those instead. - Stu

Have stayed here several times in the past and found the price increased this year to $18 [$9 with geezer pass]. Fairly busy on weekends but not full. Hardly anyone there during the week. There are three loops, some sites on the lake. Some are reservable and some are first-come-first-served. The Verizon signal there is great and there is a good walking trail several miles long. The hosts here are very nice and helpful. Lots of smoke due to area wildfires [no campfires permitted] and the campground closed while I was there because of fire danger and we had to evacuate, including the hosts. I will return next year. - mockturtle

Nice park, well managed. Although there are sites adequate for big rigs, the thick trees make it a little challenging for some, as I observed. My 24' Class C was fine, however. Dry camping, good cellular signal. Nearby forest fires caused a heavy blanket of smoke during my stay but it did not hinder my enjoyment of the experience. The price reflects my America the Beautiful senior pass. Will definitely visit here again. - mockturtle

Dry camping, reservations available but if you don't care where you camp probably not necessary as many spaces are available even on the weekends. This campground is mostly used by boaters who bring their RV for the evening and Canadians who like the cheap price. Bathrooms were old but clean, no showers. Most sites are pull-through but like another reviewer said, lots of trees make the spaces tight. Most are slightly off-level but not by much. If you like privacy the 50 series sites are tucked far in the back. Water sites are really nice but there is about a 6 foot drop to the water and no beaches. There was a sign that warned of "swimmer's itch" a parasite that borrows under the skin and causes allergic reactions in some, so if you do go into the water, rinse off!! Also bring mosquito repellent as they were hungry. A nice trail runs south of the campground from the dump station and also a small store/cafe is at the boat dock. Dump site also has a fresh potable water spigot. - Desertthorn

This park has almost no shade trees and lots of mosquito's. When you park your camper be sure to hang to the passenger side to avoid the stones on the driver side. These stones make it difficult to get around your camper to hookup your utilities. With the lake right there it offers great boating for everybody. I was surprised to find most of the people camping not very friendly. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. - illini777

Really nice for a state park. Big sites and full hookups. No wifi, cable or, OTA channels. Very quiet campground, but as others have said bring the bug spray. Even though they have a program to control the insects you are right by a lake and we had plenty of bites from the bugs.
About 10 miles from the nearest town so stock up before you get here.
We would stay again but would look for a site further from the lake. - John Borajkiewicz

Steamboat Rock is a really beautiful park. We enjoyed having wild turkeys crossing through our campsite. We also enjoyed the beach/swimming and the kids' play area. All the utilities are fine, and we did have a weak Verizon cell signal. Grand Coulee dam is very close by. Our neighbors were all quiet and the staff was friendly and attentive. - SeaTeacher

This RV park is just above Roosevelt Lake and the Columbia River at the Keller Ferry crossing. Charming park, with pretty trees and well kept lawns. Nice folks who run it. They even have a little cafe. If you like to get away from it all, and camp on the edge of the world, this is the place. They have Wi-Fi, and I have no idea how they get it - it runs about as fast as dial-up. No Verizon, no AT&T cell service, no TV (broadcast or cable), no radio stations, no newspaper. The road down and up is interesting if you are a big rig. Our F-250 and fifth wheel total 60 feet in length, and it got exciting. The road is steep, narrow and uses switchbacks with hairpin turns to navigate the 1200 feet change in elevation. In spots, we were in first or second gear to keep the speed down. The nearest town is Wilbur, 15 slow and hard miles away. - Ray Waugh

My definition of Big Rig access is different than others. The spot given to me was just long enough for my 5th wheel. Because of trees on both sides of the site I could not open the storage door. It was suppose to be a pull through but it turned out easier to back it in. Had to park the truck in the storage area as the site was too small for both. The park was clean and nice. It was quiet. They did strongly warn that if you use their WiFi to not be a "heavy" user. There is no OTA TV and too many trees for sat. TV. No Verizon service at all. - scubadave

Great spot for travelers or extended stays, they also offer sites for permanent, year-round maintained sites that are minutes from the boat launch, also great views of Lake Roosevelt. - Art a

This used to be a National Recreation Area campground like many along the shores of Lake Roosevelt. It USED to be a beautiful park that like the others was very inexpensive and a gem of a park for families that want a nice place to camp but don't have a lot of money. On our latest visit we were shocked and infuriated that this park, built and paid for by tax dollars has been handed over to the local indian tribe corporation "Dakota America". They instantly raised the price per night to $21; keep in mind there are no hookups. Also, the restrooms were closed and the water there wasn't turned on. Despite watching the "manager" come and go from the restroom building 4 times one day when asked why they weren't open and what was our $21/night paying for he acted as if he was surprised that they weren't open and working. The biggest issue we had is that reservations can be made online but no one is putting tags on the posts to tell you if a site is reserved. So our friends arrive, pick a spot and are moved out of it 30 minutes later when someone with a reservation arrived. Inexcusable. We were told it was OUR responsibility to go online before picking a spot to be sure it wasn't reserved, something easier said than done when there isn't any cell service or internet available down there. Long and short the taxpayers have been screwed out of another one of the beautiful gems we paid for in favor of big money and big corporations who get to take over these campground for free and then jack up the rates. We will never return to Keller Ferry to camp. Sad. - NwJeeper

We arrived there just after dark so we couldn't see much. There were a lot of large rigs there, and the sites were at least 7ft apart. We found a decent number of sites open, so we picked one and started to park. The asphalt pad was level. A friendly fella greeted us and let us know the site (#30) was available for the night, told us about the amenities, and advised us of the pet-friendly camp standards. The camp was totally quiet at 10p, but our neighbors had some noisy camp gear so that sucked all night long. In the morning we woke up to an amazing view and to our surprise we were on the beach front. We had to leave in a hurry the next morning, but we wished we could have spent more hot summer at this cool refreshing water frontage. - wundurgrrl

Very nice grassy and well shaded campground on the shores of Lake Roosevelt right at Keller Ferry. Nearby boat launch and marina with small store, moorage available at the marina for extra charge. Marine fuel dock also available. Boat launch area makes it easy to launch a boat even with a large RV, and you can store your trailer in the parking area on the far side. We noticed that only a few of the sites (perhaps only about 25%) were close to being level; the others were not anywhere close. Picnic tables were provided and in nice shape. Shade trees do a nice job of keeping the RV cooler even on 80+ degree days but use of a satellite dish is about out of the question. We will camp here again, though. - NwJeeper
