We stumbled upon this little gem of a park by accident after a long day of driving. The sites are very long and level and the utilities are placed well. There are large grassy lawns for each site. the park is very well tended and clean. Satellite worked great here but there is no Verizon cell phone signal. There is free wifi in the park so we were able to communicate as needed. Our rate of $12.50 was with Passport America and for the first night only. This is not a resort and I don't see any children's play areas. There seem to be quite a few long term campers here but everything is very well kept at those sites. We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice fairly new park. We went up for a weekend to get away from the Tri-Cities. The campground hosts were extremely nice and helpful. The sites were pull-through with full hookups. The sites were gravel but level and extra large (big rigs with lots of slides will fit nicely). The campground is out in the boonies and great for a getaway. It was very quiet and we appreciated it. My wife and I will definitely return when we want to escape from town again. We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Travel Trailer.
NICE park, well maintained, interior roads are gravel as are sites. Long sites but narrow. No matter because there is lots of cut lawn on both sides. Good wifi, NO AT&T. Satellite fine. We stayed here in a 40 footer for one night and would return. We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Motorhome.
I gave this a 10 due to the peace and quite or the very well maintained park and the wonderful host couple. This is not a resort, but it is a very good campground with wide, long and level sites. We stayed here for five days while visiting this part of the state including a day trip to Walla Walla. We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a clean, quiet park. Sites are long, wide, near-level gravel, separated by wide strips of grass with trees. Sewer connections are 4 inch; some are slightly below ground level. Roads are wide gravel, in good condition. Hosts are friendly and helpful. WiFi is strong, fast, and reliable, at least near the office. The shower is 4 quarters for 7 minutes. I couldn't get any of the following: Verizon data service, Sprint, T-Mobile, terrestrial broadcast television, or VHF weather radio. When the weather turned hot and windy, lots of small gray non-biting flying insects arrived. They fit through the vent screens. We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Motorhome.

Update from an earlier review: Trees have grown well, offering some shade, grounds are immaculate and restrooms are kept clean and tidy (showers are pay showers). Wi-Fi works well, but a bit slow (which didn't bother us: we have satellite at home). We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Motorhome.
We camped here during their annual campground jam this year. Well organized. Friendly staff! We have camped here in the past with various clubs. These folks are extremely accommodating. Have set up shelters for us to use as clubhouse. They go above and beyond! We will be back many more times. Has a wonderful owner and a great hostess! We had 4 grandkids with us.

Update from our 2005 review -- Wi-Fi is now available. Shade trees are nearly there. New hosts who are as friendly and helpful as the former hosts. strongly advice a stop as you're traveling along US 12 in Eastern Washington. You won't be disappointed! By the way, not only are the sites big rig accessible, they're HUGE rig access able, with room to spare. We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Motorhome.
This park is 4 miles off the highway on a paved and well maintained road. The park is surrounded by hills and mountains in the distance. The peaceful atmosphere with well tended grass between gravel sites is welcome. Hookups are easy, sites are level and pull throughs, the hosts are wonderfully kind and helpful - what more could you want? The Internet is very close to happening. They offer Passport America. Well worth the short drive off highway 12. We camped at Tucannon River RV Park (formerly Tucannon River Retreat) in a Fifth Wheel.
