As others have written, very nice but basic BLM campground. Site #1 was perfect for our 35' motorhome - we drove the "wrong way" in order to pull into site so we could see the water. As the area is very dry (sagebrush), having paved road and sites is very helpful. Reservations needed for sites with view but there are 4 sites for 1st come, 1st served. Most are level, all with picnic table and fire pits. No water is available; come with water tank full and waste empty. We did cross the road, near the tent camping area and hike up the hill. We did not see any, but this area could have rattlesnakes - just a word of caution. Big Pine is largest campground along Yakima River, but Umtanum BLM has a few sites for RVs that are gravel, not paved. Umtanum is a few miles towards Ellensburg and has a bridge across the river with a nice trail along the creek. Overall, excellent value and most scenic of Yakima or Ellensburg parks. - BandD

A nice overnight or in our case, almost a week. Immediately off the highway, sites and roads are paved. Only the first few sites have a view of the river and shade and one side of the campground is next to the highway but traffic is minimal at night. To make us fulltime rv'ers feel at home there is a train across the river but no horns. Several sites for big rigs and swing room should not be an issue. We did have to dodge some curbs backing into our site but that was self inflicted because we wanted a river view. There are no utilities and no water, only pit toilets. As another reviewer mentioned, nothing to do in the immediate are but fish or read a good book. No Verizon. - PBuds

This BLM campground is located right on the Yakima River, sandwiched between the highway and the river and a railroad on the other side. Traffic died down at night and there was only one train rumbling through about every two hours.
The sites are all paved and very level. Some are very large. Most are in the open sun, only a few are somewhat shaded. Reasonable space between the sites which offers some privacy. We were surprised to find this campground well booked (most sites are reservable) for the upcoming weekend. Well, it was fishing season and there is a boat launch right from the campground.
Pit toilets are available but we couldn't locate a water tap.
Overall excellent value for money and we will stay again. - TheSchweitzers

We really enjoyed this park. We travel in a 40' motorcoach towing a jeep. Suntides has WIDE streets so getting in and out is a breeze. The pad was paved and had grass and trees (no overhangs to mess with slides). Sites are arranged so our driver's side was close to the neighbor but the door side was big with plenty of room for our chairs, mat, grill and the park-provided picnic table. Hook-ups were good (50 amp) and WiFi was adequate. Didn't use restrooms. There are plenty of long-term residents but the sites and RV's were impeccable. Jeff, who checked us in, was working on upkeep all the time, and it showed very positively. In spite of the semi-arid climate, it was green. Fairly close to the freeway but tall pines blocked most of the noise. We had a nice view of the golf course which is not officially associated with the park. My husband played the course twice and liked it. We'd come back here again! - Traveling Gnomes

"not accepting Good Sam cards at this time" although referred by Good Sam, no discount ! This is a modern RV park which has mostly long term residents. You can tell how long by the "stuff" around the RVs. The few spaces that are available for short term use are at the entrance among longer term campers. That being said the grounds were clean and the wifi was strong. There is no cable but OTA tv stations abound. All the services and shops of a large city are nearby in Yakima. - Jake the plumber

Very small park with lots of permanent residents. While we were there the water pump went out so no water for about 12 hours. No enclosed dog walk. only 1 Shower and bathroom not very clean and it was really hot in there. level sites with grass in-between. - Yepwearedoingit

Very old park with lots of long term campers. Many transients in area. Didn't feel very safe but didn't have any problems. Had a hard time getting a 45ft MH to the site and even a harder time getting into the site. No room for my toad. No satellite because of the trees. Won't stay here next time thru. - Roamer on wheels

Very bad part of town. Just down the street from Union Gospel Mission lots of transients and hookers and pimps. Drug shops and adult sex shops if you are into that kind of things. Don't feel safe staying here. Won't stay again and the price is outrageous on the other note internet was good. Had to unhook tow vehicle no pull through for 40 ft towing. - loral

Drove down to see my family nearby. I noticed bad reviews online but decided to take a chance. It is in a rundown area of town, surrounded by an abandoned hotel? Apartments? Not sure but there are transients all around, wouldn't recommend. Next time I'm driving through I'll just keep going. - Raymond60

I did not find this park as bad as previous comments claimed. I got a pull through space that was easy in-out. The back-in spaces in the lower portion of the park could cause some grief to the untalented RVer. Yes, there are lots of full timers here, but looks like they are mostly quiet older folks. And yes, the angled speed bumps do seem a little unnecessary and are way too high. I got over it. Stayed here three days because we have some old friends living here. Big rigs will have a tough time navigating due to the narrow interior roads and the abundance of parked cars. - A Wedding

This park is focused on long term stays. There were no open sites, so we were put in a gravelled area in front of the restaurant. It was tight but did have water and electric hookups. The streets were tight with cars parked on both sides. The area designated for walking the dog smelled like a farmyard and hadn't been cleaned up. The host tried her best to accommodate us, but this is one place to which we will not return. - frmOregon

This is the worst RV park we've made the mistake of staying in since New Mexico. Tight sites, only one way in and out, angled speed bumps, RVs on top of each other, open your door and you're staring at the next door neighbor's sewer connection. Surrounded by razor wire on top of the fence between this overpriced "park" and the RV dealer next door. Long term residents with messy sites. Couldn't have been a worse unless we had a break in. Do NOT stay here unless it's an emergency, and then think twice. - TJL

Very nice park. Our site was $45 per night with one time $8 reservation and $5 out of state visitor fees. The back in sites are more spacious than the pull through sites; certainly better for larger RVs. Pull through sites are closer to the bath house. Lots of options without full hookups as well. Paved roads and sites; no issues with level or satellite access at our site (#25). There are multiple hiking and biking trails throughout the park, Yakima river runs adjacent to the park. After driving through nearby RV parks, this is probably the best in the area (and a good one). - LeslieGary

I stayed here 3 nights in site 35 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. I really liked this park. The price reflects payment for a premium site - one of the ones that are spaced around two circular drives. It was definitely worth the extra money. The sites are spacious and you have a large area behind and to the side of your camper that is all yours. The pad is paved and level. The non-premium sites are lined up in a row quite close together. Site 35 was particularly nice because it backed up to a wooded area and had shade much of the day. This is an urban park which is an oasis of green grass and large shade trees located in the flood plain of the Yakima River. It has a very large day use area with a few nature trails. Great for walking the dog. There were mosquitos but not hordes of them. There are also some nature trails in a wilderness area between the dike and the river. The park was very quiet and very well maintained. Lots of ranger presence. Verizon service was excellent. The price does not reflect the $8 reservation fee and an additional one-time $5 non-resident fee. But they don't charge extra for a tow vehicle. Water and electricity all worked well. I did not use the restrooms. - SoloRed

We wanted to stay 3 nights to visit the nearby national park so we tried to make reservations on line but the website wasn't working correctly. We emailed the park directly but never received a reply. Because our reservation at another park was fouled up, we had to find a site when we arrived in the area. Fortunately, there was a site available for the 3 nights we needed as there aren't many options in the area. The park is located in town. It is a short drive from I-82 (Exit 33 or 34) along secondary streets. The park was undergoing some road work so there were some rough obstacles to overcome but the project was being finished on the day we departed. The interior roads & back in parking pads are paved. The interior roads and turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and P/T's. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad as most of the them were level but some required blocking. The camp loops (sites 17 - 36) have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the center of the sites. The sewer connection fitting was at ground level making it easy to establish a downhill flow depending on the discharge point. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. All sites have an outside table & fire pits. Orientation of the sites caused some not to have any shade on passenger side. The camp loop sites had a few trees that could interfere with satellite reception depending on site assignment and dish configuration. The P/T's were under an extensive tree canopy making satellite reception difficult at best. No cable. The park information didn't mention anything about broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. No park provided WiFi. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone. - bsb814

A convenient location for travelers. Easy on and off the highway. Services all worked well, including the free WiFi. Clean and tidy overall. Attractive. Pleasant and helpful front desk. Landscaped and watered lots. Level pad. - carliewired

Quick check in. Pay for 6 nights and the 7th night is free. Paved roads and pad sites. Easy hook ups. They have both concrete pull thru sites which is more like a parking lot situation with just a planter in between sites or you can ask for a back in which is nice an grassy with plenty of space in between sites. Good grassy areas to walk pets. Wi Fi was a bit iffy but was great when it worked. Local channels came in fine on the tv. Would stay here again. - EggerMar

Good Verizon 4G signal. This is a large park. When we were there it was not very full. Maybe 30%. The sites are spacious, grassy, and the utilities are all good. There is a mix here of regular RV people and funky people. So some rigs were nice class A clean ones and some converted school buses with "MafiaMotorcycles" and skull and cross bones painted on them. They also rent TP's for the night here. There is a walking-jogging track that goes the perimeter of this park. It gets lots of use from people not staying in the RV park. I assume they are from the Indian "village" that is close by.
There is a very large casino being built close by. We went there for Thursday night seafood night. It was very good. It was packed. We had to wait 30 minutes to get in. This casino is mostly unfinished. The parking lot is full. I think not much else to do in town. - RFCN2

We found this RV park to be very nice, clean and quiet (a train once in a while). There is a ton of space between each site, which is SO nice to have because most parks cram you in like sardines. The sites are gravel with patches of (green) grass in between. I say 'green' because it has been so dry everywhere we've been in Washington that 'green' was a pleasant surprise. Utilities were placed well and worked fine. We were parked on the back row next to a pasture of horses and cows. It was very pleasant and relaxing. Wifi even worked pretty good. Although this was a delightful park we felt we were handed pages of rules. All, or most, of these rules are standard and common courtesy, but to have them all written out so that when you look at the page you wonder if you're allowed to sit outside or put your awning out. Of course you are, but the you get the drift. The other thing that was cumbersome was the entry gate. It's one of those gates that you put in a code and sit there for a few minutes while it opens sideways. There are quite a few speed bumps at the entrance where that gate is so don't get caught in it while easing over the speed bumps. The park is out in the country and near a relatively small town. I don't understand the need for this mega security gate that is in the way. - jomark

This is now a gated RV park which has drawbacks when you have visitors. Check in time is 1:00 which means you may have to wait somewhere like we did as our last park was only 1 hour away and we had to be checked out of there by 11. However, it is a clean, well maintained park and close to Ellensburg. We would stay here again as we have family here. The spaces are wider than in years past which is very nice. Great camp hosts. - rolling homeless

Newer park with limited sewer hookups and small trees. Nice pull through sites with 50 amp service, level gravel pads, and grass between each site. Located next to the Yakima River in a scenic valley. Two nice sized grassy dog parks and a field. Expect lots of wind in the afternoons in Ellensburg. There is a dump site down the road. 5.00 for second dog. I would stay here again. - Traveler Anne
