We didn't stay here. Just a trip into the office to ask about their rates was enough to convince me this would be a bad experience. The staff was unfriendly, rude and unhelpful. The campground was mostly dirt. We camped at Old American Kampground in a Travel Trailer.
This is another K/M park. Maintenance is just as bad as the others. Zero amenities here. Office staff tries hard but don't expect much. Lots of nice dirt and dust. More evidence that I wasted my money on a K/M membership. We camped at Old American Kampground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Newport is fairly short on just about everything. Even fishing was bad when we were here. My advice: keep going down the highway.
We came here for the review we read and the pics we saw, very disappointed, the town has really nothing other then a Safeway and McDonalds, the river is a view from up top. We were told we would have one space and they put us in another with wasps catchers. Did not see this until we had backed in. The hot tub was broke and still broke two weeks later, we ended up staying here because, with km, you have to be out one week before going to another. No planned activities other the ice cream on Friday. No one overly friendly here. It'd for a night using anything other then km I would stay but don't waste your time for a week We camped at Old American Kampground in a Motorhome.
Electricity went off at 6:45 am. Reset the breaker at pedestal but still did not work. Called the office and got a recording. Drove to the office at 9:00 am, and found they don't open until 10:00 am. At 10:00, called office, still got the recording. Finally, at 10:20, called office and they said they would send someone. 30 minutes later, a lady showed up. I watched her trip the breaker on the main panel, it wobbled and was obviously worn out. Reset the panel breaker myself 3 times. Will not be coming back to this park.

We did not encounter any of the problems mentioned in other reviews. Staff was very friendly. We asked for and received a site with satellite access. Good AT&T. Wi-Fi was $1/day, which is very reasonable. Wash rigs for $4, which is very helpful. There could be more space between sites. I agree there is not too much going on in town but that is fine with us. We would come here again. Rate reflects Coast to Coast. We camped at Old American Kampground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. 50 amp is available but only at backin sites, not pull-throughs. Sites were rutted and hard to level. Cable TV worked well. Older park, OK for a night on the road. We camped at Old American Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.
Mixed feelings. Old park so sites are narrow. Some slideouts touch neighbors' awnings. River view was nice, but arm's length to next rig not so much. Dog walk is drive to river, which is chained. Was not about to drag kayak back and forth to river. Management very nice. Stayed as ROD. Will not stay again simply because the sites are too close for our comfort.

This is a membership park, and, as members of the system, we were not charged a nightly fee. Wi-Fi is available, but not at all sites. I had to carry my laptop to the picnic table at the end of the road to get service. We have stayed here before and have always enjoyed this park. The staff is very friendly and the grounds clean and well maintained. Rest rooms are clean, though not very large. This park is at the edge of the city of Newport, so some stores and restaurants are within walking distance. We will stay there again this year and recommend it to anyone else who has access to it.

This is a great little park hidden along the Pend O'Reille River. The managers were very helpful, kind and friendly. The best spots are down on the river bank overlooking the Pend O'Reille. The morning sunrise is absolutely wonderful. Other sites in the park are on a hillside which gives everyone a different view of the surrounding area. This park is rather old and has gravel but with such a good crew working there you don't mind the dust. We will definitely stay again, hopefully for longer next time.

Very nice park. Friendly staff, clean washrooms, within walking distance of downtown Newport, free Wi-Fi. We stayed under ROD and will stay again when in the area. We camped at Old American Kampground in a Motorhome.
We were here under Resorts of Distinction and thoroughly enjoyed the park and the area. Many sites have wooden decks with great views of the Pend Oreille River. Staff very friendly and helpful. We wanted to stay longer, but the holiday weekend prevented us doing so. We will stay here again when in this area. We camped at Old American Kampground in a Motorhome.

Our stay here was on an ROD reservation. The only extra cost was for cable TV ($1 per day). This is a very nice park in a great setting. It is VERY convenient to both Newport, WA and Oldtown, ID. In fact, we think the state line ran through the center of our 5th wheel. McDonalds and a Safeway (with diesel fuel) were within walking distance from the park (only a few hundred feet). We were assigned site 4 about 30 feet above and overlooking the Pend Oreille (pronounced "ponderay") River with tall pine trees between our unit and the river. The campground has river front access with a boat launch and docks. We used an inflatable kayak in the river and had little trouble paddling up stream. The host was very nice and accommodating. Newport is centrally located for day trips to some very scenic areas in northeast Washington, northern Idaho and British Columbia, Canada. Don't miss Priest Lake and Coeur d'Alene Lake both in Idaho about 30 to 40 miles away. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Old American Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park. Our space was up at the top in a bare "pie-shaped" area. With no other rigs near us it was great, but when full, the "pie-shaped" area had all the rig front ends almost touching and barely enough room to put down the awning. There are a lot of trees and access to a large river. We had some business in Spokane which is about an hour away. This park is OK for a short stay. We might stay here again.
