15 Parks near Leavenworth, Washington
Aug 2016 - $44.00
Park is on the small side (~30 sites) and seems a bit dated, however there are a few sites for large rigs with 50amp service. Plenty of shade for inner sites due to tall Ponderosa Pine trees. Sites are mostly level and well maintained. Office staff were friendly and helpful. Located ~3/4 mile to downtown Leavenworth, and grocery store nearby just across highway. Park has free WiFi (2.4 & 5GHz), with strong signal and sufficient bandwidth for smooth streaming.
Unfortunately, park is right against HWY2 which is a busy road with noticeable traffic noise but easy to get into. Single bath house was clean but in need of refurbishment.
Park location was driving factor for selection, but there are other parks in area which might be better fit next time. - Spun69

This is a small, old, tired RV park. They don't offer anything but free WiFi; no TV, no hot tub, no pool, no food/snacks, no RV emergency supplies, etc. Everything is dirt and the spaces are small. The sewer connections are old style where you just insert your hose, no screw in connection, so the fumes can get bad. Dust is kicked up constantly by any car or bike that goes by. And, you're right next to the main highway so you hear semi-trucks all day and night. This place is old and tired and it is obvious that the owners don't invest a dime more than they have to in order to run the park. Avoid this place unless you just need a quick stay for the night and you don't want or need anything else, including peace and quiet. - Bruce of Port Ludlow

This is a small park - I would consider it to be more of a campground than an RV park, since the amenities are few. Close enough to the highway that you do get road noise. Most of the sites are back-in. Heavily wooded, so no chance to get satellite TV; on the powered antenna, we were able to get 3 channels... all PBS. The nearby alpine village of Leavenworth is why we stopped here - lots of restaurants and shops (you will need to drive to town). Friendly lady at the office. Our site was one of the longer ones in the park, but needed blocks under the front wheels to get level, even with jacks. - DreamCaptn

The owners are really friendly. It does have full time residence. It is by far the best value of all the parks around there. It is perfect if you are going to visit Leavenworth and do not expect activities here. Nice pool. Yes, wifi not great unless by check in building. Spots are small and some not level. We have a 35 ft motorhome and tow car. Cable not working when we were there not a big deal for us. We couldn't build a fire as not just there but parts of Washington were on a no fire restriction. We drove to check out other 3 camping places near there, we did not like them and wouldn't have fit our RV in those. We would for sure go back there. - Gracies condo

Very pretty park for an overnight stay. Clean and well kept. We would stay there again. Pay showers were very clean. WiFi only in clubhouse, it is slow and difficult to use.
When we were outside, the river covered the road noise, and as it became dark, there was very little noise at all. The long term resident area is closest to the road, and although some of the rigs are old, seems to be well kept.
The pool looked nice, but it was too cold to swim. We imagine it is very popular in the summer. - Impkitti

No discounts offered at this park. We stayed two nights on our way to Mt Rainier. Our site was a full hookup site with 30 amp. Our sewer connection was right next to our neighbors picnic table. Our other neighbor had to park his truck partially on our site because the sites are so narrow. WiFi was poor. We had good satellite and good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. The park was full, but very quiet at night. We probably would not stay here again. - Dave51

We stayed at many Koa's travelling across the northern USA in July.
Besides being incredibly overpriced, this was the worst one we stayed in.
Site was small and not level. No help from staff.
Site even had a broken BBQ. - Rygar
Jul 2016 - $70.00
I thought $70 per night was a little high for this park. Spaces were really close together and a little hard to get into. We did like that they have a shuttle that takes you to the Bavarian Village, which is a must see - lots of cute shops. - travel44

Not a fan of KOAs in the first place but this one was really bad. It is an old campground with narrow roads and really tight turns with big rocks on the inside of most turns. Maneuvering was a chore so pay attention. Staff was rude, bathrooms were disgusting, sites are really close together and most had no grass! I would not stay here except as a last resort! - Axman

Excellent campground to camp in during August. Any earlier and you will be camping with lots of mosquitoes. We camped at the north side of the park, which is where the RV utility sites are. This side is also much quieter than the south side which we checked out earlier. We stayed in site 126, which is adjacent to a trail that leads down to the lake. Because of the fires though, no campfires or barbecuing with charcoal briquettes was allowed, however you are allowed to use those disposable propane campfire canisters, since they do not emit any embers. All a great place to camp. - GNman

We were only able to book a standard back-in campsite with no hookups, so access was a bit tight. For us, the ideal campsite would have been in the South loop where the main beach and play areas were. Park was clean and every site was full, which is typical for a WA state park on a summer weekend. We'll go back, but we'll do a better job of picking a site which will make a huge impact on my family's fun. - pokeyt

I had never been here before and was surprised by the number of sites there were. Our group had 2 sites right next to each other according to number but wasn't as the map had shown. I thought they would have been more spaced out than actually were but it worked out just fine. The restrooms were clean for the number of people who were there and the ones down by the beach were even cleaner. The host were great! I even took a stroll on their cart delivering fire wood to the other campers. Good time but off weather. Will return! - PatAnd

Dusty Dusty Dusty. Maybe it's the time of year, but this could be a pretty park, but at every corner and three times in between it has a little green guy out there saying slowdown and people do drive slow but man is it Dusty; this place makes Quartzsite Arizona look like a clean room. I try to make things positive and still look at all the obstacles, but this park has definitely been used. The electrical poles are all broken, so the electrical boxes are just being held up by the plastic conduit. Utilities can make for an interesting hook up; some are at the very back so be prepared for that, but overall the park has a pretty atmosphere about it. It's just that it's got a run down infrastructure. I will choose not to camp here; next time would much rather stay in the forest campground right up the road even though it has no utilities, all paved, very nice, no DUST . I might add that we used Passport America to get this rate. At one time, we had thought that we might like to be Thousand Trails members. In fact, we even had people that were going to give us their membership. All we had to do was transfer names and pay the yearly fees. We chose not to - good decision.
I tried to be honest in my review and overall this is a pretty campground, but drive slow through the park. There are constant signs for a reminder and make the best out of it; we still had a good time. - monaco cruiser

Stayed here for 21 days as a TV member. Got in on a Friday afternoon and found a narrow non sewer site. During the first week, we moved 3 times to get to a larger sewer site. Had to go into town to get a 30 amp extention cord. Most of the sites have the services in the front of the sites, so bring extentions for electric, water and sewer. Stayed in Meadow View loop and most of the larger sites are taken by annual site holders. Restrooms are clean but outdated. Only one shower in the men's side. During busy season and plan to arrive on Friday, get here on Thursday. - mdmnkcm

I arrived today with a reservation for 50 amp and full hookup. I was told to drive around and find a site. Fortunately, we were able to find one, but this is absolutely no way to run a campground!! We mainly found a site because we got here early enough. The sites are not level and there are stumps all over that should be ground up. We almost hit one. It is also 20 miles out of Leavenworth. Not being a Thousand Trails member and having to pay full price, I would think the least the park could do, would be to assist people to their sites. After being here for a day, most people in the park are Thousand Trail members, so they are used to finding their own sites but even they agreed it was very difficult the way the park is set up. - Junia

This is a Forest Service campground, which means, it's meant for the "outdoors experience" not for "comfort." The sites are a mixture of gravel and asphalt, may or may not be level. Mostly back in, with some pull-through. The sites are just where ever, no special arrangement, and each site has a fire pit and picnic table. The picnic tables have a special pad for you to place your camp stoves. Sites are rather close together at the entrance, a little more spacing (but not much) down near the river. No sewer dump, but you can dump for free at the rest stop six miles to the west on US Highway 2, or pay $5 and dump at the nearby state park. Camp Host said big rigs could get in here, but I am skeptical. I have a 32 foot and it was barely enough for me. Lots of trees with squirrels running around, my cat was entertained for hours. Good shade. The restrooms, which contained a plumbed toilet and sink (wow!), were fairly clean. Verizon Air Card worked very well. My "8" rating is for the "outdoor experience" and is not meant to imply the comforts of a fancy RV park. - DXSMac

To get here go N 1 mile on US-2 from city center (there is a sign that says city center) and go S on Icicle Road. Keep going. This is a narrow, twisty road. When you get to the 3 mile marker look to your left for the entrance. Entrance is quite narrow and not well marked. Interior roads are mostly paved but really twisty and narrow. Scraped our coach on a tree. Most sites are back or pull in. If you have a 38' coach or longer they will put you in the "new" area (110-114). Note that to get to your site you must go up a gravel 30 degree slope and stop short of the boulders which stop you from going over a cliff to the river below. Really hard to unhook a towed from that position, but you can't do it elsewhere. To get out you have to call the office and have someone come and assist you in backing out! And its back thru the trees. Water outlet was within 5 inches of the sewer (look for the one for irrigation). Electric was very bad. 50 amp had a little as 71 volts on one leg and kept tripping. "Guide" showed up with a multi meter and checked it and said 113 is good the best they ever get is 113 volts. Had to go to a 30 amp plug and even then would not run 2 AC's. They have a significant electrical issue. The office staff told us that the site was fairly level and facing some trees along the river - it was but from 150 ft up! Even upon check in the office staff was rude and the camp "guides" were no better. Since we travel with dogs and could not rely on the electricity we bolted the next day. No refund. Despite the dust you can't wash your coach. No areas to walk the dogs since the new sites were the dog walking areas and other areas are actually marked "off limits areas". Sites are really tiny. Could not put out awnings without hitting next coach. Leavenworth is just not worth staying at this place. Higher rating must be from family members. - okdiver

IRRV is about 3 to 4 miles down a windy road from the Bavarian-themed tourist town of Leavenworth. It is a very 'busy' campground and had very thorough check-in processes to efficiently handle the volume. Their valets (retired guys in golf carts) lead you to, and guide you precisely into your site.
It initially looked like a single level rivers edge campground. Walking around I saw there are at least 3 levels with over 100 sites. The 2nd level is just up a small rise but the 3rd level had a steep gravel grade with sites that back-in over a high cliff above the Icicle river. Nice views if you and your rig can handle it. There are also 8 rental cabins spread around the park.
The restroom/shower buildings were clean with plenty of hot water. There was also a laundry, hot tub and enclosed clubhouse. As should be expected being down in a river valley encircled by mountains; cell and antenna TV reception was poor/non-existence. Our W/E/S site #5 was along the road leading to the office and backed up to a cliff, so was quiet. It was paved and level with trees on both sides but still room for slide outs,(barely in some cases). All our utilities worked. While there we had a 45' Newell Entegra, plus his full-sized SUV manage to fit in the site next to us. So where there's a will; there's a way. - OTR-again

We love the river side spots at this RV Park. This is our second time here for a week and the river sites are great.
However, the staff in a number of cases was rude and unhelpful. Our impression was that the park is run for the benefit of the staff and not the customers. We had a poor office experience, and did not find the host staff very helpful. - RPFawcett

Johnny Creek is a beautiful National Forest Service campground located about 12 miles from the Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth. This campground is situated at the confluence of Johnny and Icicle Creeks and is split into two areas, Lower Johnny and Upper Johnny. Both areas are nice, but Lower Johnny is the best because many of the sites give you views and direct access to Icicle Creek. The sites are spacious, quite private, peaceful and beautiful. There are no fancy amenities here, just vault toilets, a picnic table, a fire ring and the great outdoors. This campground appeals mostly to tents and those with camper vans, truck campers, pop-up trailers, small travel trailers or small motorhomes, although motorhomes in the 30' range should have no problem fitting into some sites. Access roads and sites are paved. Drinking water is available but there are no hook-ups or dump station. Come prepared to be self contained and laid back! All of the NFS campgrounds along Icicle River Road are popular in the summer. Get there early to nab a spot on the weekends. Our rate reflects the fact that we have a Federal Senior Pass and get 50% off the regular rate. Fees for Lower Johnny are two dollars more than for Upper Johnny. We would definitely stay here again. - BruceandKathyWA

Nice grassy field with plenty of sites. When occupancy is low, these would be considered pull-throughs. Each site accommodates RV + 2 vehicles. Pets allowed. Bathroom/Showers and full-hookups. Across the street from Chelan County Expo Center/Fairgrounds. A dog fun area is provided to let your pups run, although we didn't look for it. Wi-Fi was good & strong. Clear view of sky for sat dishes. No shade - could be hot in summer. No picnic tables at sites. Quiet, and beautiful surroundings. Train tracks in the distance, but far enough away that it didn't disturb us. Can be a little windy here. - LizzyWA

Side by side sites on dirt/grass. Beautiful area, surrounded by hills. Very quiet. Spotty wifi. Good power, excellent water pressure, no trees, good satellite reception. - norm scherer

This park doesn't look like much but we really enjoyed it because of the beautiful surroundings. It is absolutely gorgeous in this valley. We were camping with friends so we camped with our doors facing each other. Sites are very roomy. Not so happy with the host. Their site was positioned way in the back and if you don't know where they are you could spend a bit of time trying to find them. Also, their site was a pig pen. They really should be brought to task for it. And the trains, so often and so noisy! But it is so beautiful here! We would stay here again. - User2209

Beautiful park. A few trains and some road noise. The park is in two parts. The long time campers that work are seperate so weekday mornings are quiet in the recreational section. We found dog poop on our site. This appears to be an exception. Welcoming host was very friendly. This park is an outstanding value. - Hamilhome

Very nice park. I liked the way the sites were laid out in the loops. They are angled in relation to each other, so you don't feel like it's a parking lot. There is a lot of openness between sites. A little highway and railroad noise, but not bad. We had a great river view out the back window of our trailer. - RnBRV

Tried to book online, but had poor reception at our location. Called and was greeted by a great person who only wanted my name and phone number to hold the space for same day arrival. Check in was a breeze! No Discounts. Back in only parking, but plenty of room for rig and tow. The grounds are beautiful and are located right on the river. We were fortunate we got a spot as the result of a cancellation. - Edwards-JV
