Another great Washington state park! Spacious and well laid out sites that offer full hook-ups at 60 sites. Other sites closer to the water are dry camping only, but there is a dump station in the park. They even have small sleeping cabins to rent. Park appears to be well kept even during the middle of the winter when we are the only ones here. Probably gets crowded during the summer. Still, looks like the best place to stay in the area. We camped at Potholes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is an oasis of green in the desert of eastern WA. As you drive on the approach road through the harsh landscape you have no clue that this park will be lush and green with shade trees. The full hookup sites are large and are arranged as spokes around large, open central circles so backing into them is quite easy. The roads and sites are packed crush gravel and are reasonably level. The grass is green and thick because it is watered several days a week. The grounds were well kept and the grass had been freshly mowed when we arrived. Contrary to what was stated in the previous review, the utilities location was standard and easy to connect to. Verizon cell phone and internet service was acceptable but not as strong as one would like. Despite the trees, it was easy to get a satellite signal. All-in-all this was a fine example of a WA State park; they may not be inexpensive, but they are nice. We camped at Potholes State Park in a Motorhome.

Frankly, this park was a disappointment. My 'full hookup site' had the sewer placed in an inconvenient location so I had to move the RV in the morning to dump the tanks. The water spigot dripped constantly so I just disconnected the hose and used the water from my fresh water tank. The park grounds were nice and seemed well maintained and it was a popular destination for boating in the reservoir. For the price, I would not stay there again. We camped at Potholes State Park in a Motorhome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The park is very clean, sites are spaced out well with large grassy areas. It was very quiet. The only down side is that there is not much to do in the area if you don't have a boat with you. But it was a nice, quiet get-away, and we would definitely visit here again. We camped at Potholes State Park in a Motorhome.

The Good Stuff: - RV sites are very big and are arranged in “pods” with about 10 slots per pod. Each “pod” has a nice buffer of tall trees surrounding them to provide a small wind break and some privacy. - The sites are clean, level (but gravel) and have a nice fire pit and picnic bench. The grounds are well irrigated and manicured. - The campground is very big with huge open areas and a big play structure for young kids. - There are four boat launches and a lot of trailer parking. The lake is bigger than I expected, has great fishing (so I’m told) and was already warm enough to swim in. - Restrooms and showers are typical Washington State Park…very clean, but tired and worn. The Bad Stuff: - Mosquitoes! Luckily the winds kept up while we were there, so they were not too bad. But when the winds died down they were pretty thick. - No pull-through sites, but the “pods” were pretty big and I saw a number of large motor homes parked, so there is enough room to turn around. - Only dock at the boat launch is for loading/unloading. There isn’t any overnight moorage. We camped at Potholes State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Very clean spacious sights. Some with shade but many without. Very well cared for lawn area, watch out for sprinklers, wherever you are parked or tented something will get wet. We camped at Potholes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this park in January 2003 for our first trip in our new fifth wheel. While the park welcomes winter camping, the water to the sites is turned off in the wintertime. There was a winter water supply available at the park entrance to fill our holding tank. Park has a dump station. The park is located on the shores of O'Sullivan Reservoir. There is at least one boat ramp in the park. The sites are not right next to the reservoir, rather the reservoir is next to the day use area, a short walk from the camping section. The sites are pleasant enough. Half the sites are tent only, some are RV only, quite a few have RV parking with a sand-filled tent space adjacent. Half have utilities. There are at least a couple of nice play areas for children, with decent log playground fixtures. This is apparently a heavily used park in season, when we were there, virtually all the other campers (maybe 12) were hunters or
fisherpeople. There were quite a few day-use people coming into the park to use the boat ramp. Tall windbreak trees provide privacy amongst the seperate cul-de-sacs where 8-10 campsites are. We would like to go back to this park in the early spring. We camped at Potholes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
