This campground was more like a trailer park with old, run down permanent site campers scattered all about. The campground felt dirty and disorganized, and when our camper is the nicest one in the park I know something is wrong! Our site was not level and it took us some time to actually get set up since the site sloped uphill. There was only one set of bathrooms and showers and they were nowhere near where they put us so I did not use them as I normally would in any other campground (they were probably about 1/4 mile away down a steep hill from our site). They have free wireless internet, which worked well the first night but after another camper moved in next to us it did not (my guess is the camper was blocking our line of sight to the wireless box). We would not stay here again.
When we called this campground for a reservation they asked us whether we wanted to be in the field or by trees. We chose the field. The field has very wide sites but you are literally out in a field with no privacy between sites. The sites were not level at all and, although the sites were wide, once we had people on either side of us and right in back of us, the sites started to feel very small. The sites near the trees looked a little smaller but with a bit more privacy. The pool was nice, but there were a ton of kids and it was loud and crowded all the time, so it is not a place to hang out and relax. There are also no chairs by the pool, so bring your own or prepare to sit on the ground. The showers were coin operated - $0.25 for 7 minutes. The water pressure was great, the temperature was hot, and they were pretty clean. The only problem was that the number of showers was not adequate based on the number of people staying at the campground. There was always a wait anytime I went to shower - it did not matter if it was 3 pm, 6 pm or morning. You also learn quickly to ignore the "men" and "women" signs as showers are unisex - I am not sure why they bothered to label them. The staff was very helpful and nice, although we did get admonished for going over the 5 mph speed limit. Wireless was only available near the office, but it was free (you just have to ask for an access code) and it was a very strong signal near the office. The campground is in a great location - 4 miles away from Acadia National Park and another few miles past that is the city of Bar Harbor. The buses came regularly and are free.
The park itself is wonderful - beautiful, quiet, clean and great rails to trail bike paths. The campsite was nice as well - very large and flat, lots of privacy from surrounding foliage. We were right by the fresh water, so we were able to fill up our tanks before settling into our site. There is a dump station in the park as well. The only down side of this park, and hence the 6 rating, was the bathroom. They were not clean and I feel pretty certain that they were never cleaned the entire time we stayed (about 5 nights). One of the showers had hardly any water pressure, the other shower was clogged up, and the middle shower was the best that they had. My husband said the men's showers were just as awful. So, if you are not using the showers this is a great park. The city of Hingham is very cute, you are within 4 miles of a great grocery store and the cleanest laundromat I have ever done clothes at in my life in downtown Hingham.
The only reason you would want to stay here is to be close to Salem or the area surrounding Salem, which is exactly why we stayed here. We were given a back-in site in the parking lot, although there were other grassy sites in the park. However, those grassy sites did not look very level, so we were actually happy to have a parking lot site (this is a very small campground and they pretty much squeeze people in wherever they can). There is no privacy here as the sites are close together and you are literally in a parking spot. But the place quiets down by 10 pm and there are no lights to disturb the night. However, people are up and about early in the morning, especially since the parking lot sites are next to the boat ramps. We stayed here on what is most likely their busiest summer weekend - 4th of July. So I was pleasantly surprised to find very little wait for the showers. Overall, the showers were as clean as you could expect given how busy the campground was with tent campers. The only thing I did not like about the showers is that there is no privacy when you are taking off your clothes to get into the shower. You have to leave your clothes and towels outside the shower itself and this is open for everyone to see you. There is no dump station at the campground itself, but just a few seconds down the street there is a dump station at the local sewage facility.
This was the worst campground that we have stayed in during the last 10 months. There are potholes everywhere leading into the campground, and it is not paved. The sites are a good size, but the campground is run down and it looks like it is occupied primarily by full time residents. The water smelled very sulphury (I believe the campground is on a well), and the shed where the bathrooms were housed looked too scary and rundown to even want to check them out. But the worst part of the campground is that it sits directly next to a railroad and the Ohio turnpike. Trains run all the time and the traffic noise from the turnpike is non-stop. We were unable to get a decent night sleep either night we were there. There is absolutely no way that we would stay here again.
The campground is a bit difficult to locate since it sits behind the K-Mart. You actually have to drive through the parking lot of the K-Mart to get to the park itself. They do not accept credit cards so be sure to have cash or a check with you. The sites are flat, very nice, with lots of trees. Each site is paved with a nice picnic table. There were a lot of mosquitoes this time of year. The downside of the park is that there are train tracks very close by and you could hear the very loud whistles of the trains into the late evening hours. Traffic noise was pretty loud as were the barges in the water (or something that sounded like barges). So between the trains and traffic, it is not a very quiet park at night. The showers are all private and they are HUGE! Water pressure was decent enough and water was hot. The showers were very clean. This is a good park to stay at if you are passing through and we would stay here again if it was for a short stay.
This is an old KOA campground that has been taken over by a private owner. I would not recommend this campground at all. If you do stop here be sure to request a pull through site. The back in sites are in a less well maintained part of the park, and the electrical/water hookups for these sites are at the back of the sites instead of on the side as you would normally find in any other campground. We originally had asked for a water and electric only site (hence we were given a back in site), but once we saw how the hookups were set up we went back and had them move us to a pull through. The campground sits behind a mobile home park which makes the campground feel very low class and the campground itself is not very well maintained. The showers are all private and very big. But the water would go from scalding hot to cool and back to scalding hot (and I mean scalding) for no rhyme or reason. They were clean enough and the water pressure was good. Campground was quiet and dark at night as it does not sit near any major roads.
We loved this campground!!! It was beautiful, quiet, and was as close to feeling like you are in the park as you can get. The campground has wonderful trees throughout and feels very secluded. There were not that many people staying at the park when we were there so we had our choice of spots (the area is deserted in early June). Although the campground sits right off of US Highway 2, there is no road noise at night once the traffic dies down. It was the quietest and darkest campground we have ever stayed in - I loved it! The bathrooms were sparkling clean. There is one private bathroom that even has a bathtub in it. The water was hot, and the pressure was wonderful. The laundry room was good as well. It has four or five washers and two huge dryers. Prices are typical - $2.25 for the washer and $0.25 for fifteen minutes for the dryer. We were too early in the season for the nightly campfires, but we did try the owner's homemade cinnamon rolls and rhubarb pie which were excellent! We would definitely stay here again.
We loved this RV Park. It was absolutely beautiful and clean with spacious sites that had grass and trees on both sides (and a picnic table). Although it was right off of Highway 93 the traffic noise at night was very minimal, and there was zero light pollution. The laundry room had four washers and four dryers with extremely reasonable prices ($1.25 for a washer and $1.00 for dryers). The laundry room was a good size and had a nice table in between the washers and dryers for folding laundry. The bathrooms were sparkling clean, and the large showers had wonderful hot water and excellent water pressure. We would definitely stay here again!
This park is completely non-frills. We did not even receive a welcome packet upon arrival - the one with the map of the park, cable channels, and advertising that you get at every other campground. But, I guess that is why they are able to charge only $25/night. We had to track down the manager when we arrived (as did other people when they arrived). She lives on site, but does not seem to really pay too much attention to people coming and going. The showers are coin operated - $0.25 for 3 minutes. The showers were a bit smelly (my guess is that they did not get much use), but clean enough to be able to get through a shower. The water was hot and the water pressure was just okay. The sites are level and a good size. We were able to get a pull through site since they were not very busy the weekend we were there. The park is close to I-5, but far enough away that the traffic noise was minimal. This park is adequate for the price you pay. If you are looking for a reasonably priced park with no amenities (there is cable tv, but no wireless access; I believe that there are laundry facilities but I did not use them) then this is the park for you.
I really enjoyed this park! It is a tiny park, but very well maintained. Although they definitely had some people living there, the RVs were all very nice and neat. The park is near the road, but the road is not a busy one at night, so the road noise is minimal. We did receive an escort to our site, but we were so close to the office it was more like they pointed at it and said, "over there". The spaces are close together and I was glad we were in a small travel trailer. But there were several pull through sites for big rigs. The bathrooms were very clean, the showers were hot, and the water pressure was adequate. The laundry room was small - two washers and two dryers. But they were very clean and very affordable. The washer was $1.25 and the dryer was $1.00. I never had to wait very long to get access to available washers and dryers. Cable was great and wireless was awesome - free and a great signal, so rare at parks these days. I would definitely stay here again if we traveled through this area another time.
The only reason to stay at this RV park is to be close to Seattle, or the surrounding areas if that is your goal for your trip to Bellevue. One review said that this park was like a Wal Mart parking lot with electricity, and I would say that was being slightly generous. The RV park is cramped, the spaces are small, most people seem to be living there, the other campers are old, they actually reserve parking spaces in front of the office for those that drive their conversion vans to and from work, and at one time we were actually parked next to four trucks (so it really felt like a parking lot). There are no trees and no picnic tables. The RV park sits right next to I-90 so it is quite loud during the day and evening. Simply said, it was awful. The only items of note was that the wireless connection was free and very strong, the cable worked great and the showers were clean. The water was mostly luke warm, however, and the water pressure was just okay - it was more like a lot of air blowing water down on you. They have a laundry room but I did not use it. And there is a heated indoor pool, but we did not use that either. My recommendation would be to find some place else to stay unless you really need to be close in to Seattle.
This was a great place to stay. It was very convenient to Eugene with easy access on and off I-5. The nearest grocery store, however, was about 5 miles away. The park is beautiful with trees and a large open grassy area in the middle of the park. We were given a site that was far from the road and we felt like we were camping in the woods. It was very quiet and dark at night. However, some of their sites do sit right next to the road, so try to request one away from the main road. You are given a plastic table with two chairs instead of a picnic table. The plastic table was very dirty and unusable. The downside of being away from the road is that we were a bit of a walk from the bathrooms and laundry. But, it is manageable as it is not that big of a park. Thankfully it never rained while we were there. The bathrooms are very clean and are the type where you get the entire bathroom to yourself. The first bathroom I tried, however, I could not get any hot water. But the second bathroom had hot water, the water pressure was strong and it was very clean. The laundry rooms were very clean as well. There are four washers and four dryers. The prices were very inexpensive compared to what we had been paying. The washer was $1.25 and the dryer was $1.00 for 40 minutes (note, no change machine in the laundry room). The owner provided us free wireless access for the first 24 hours. But after that we had to pay for it (which we chose not to do). The signal, while we had it, was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.
Great park! Although it is about 10 miles outside the city of Portland, access to and from downtown is easy on I-5. The RV park is very clean, well maintained with beautiful trees. The restrooms were clean, showers were hot and water pressure was quite good. The park is far enough from the interstate so that you get no road noise. There is a great hiking path that goes right by the park and winds back through the neighborhoods. The surrounding area is nice, feels safe, and you are close to grocery stores, malls, Whole Foods, movie cinema, and restaurants. The owners of the park watch you carefully and will correct you if you are not following the rules (for instance, we had put our mat out on the grass, which is not allowed. When we returned they had moved the mat to underneath our camper). But we are happy to comply and they were not snippy about it at all. They obviously take very good care of their park, so following the rules is worth it. We would definitely camp here again!
We enjoyed our stay at this RV park. The spaces are a good size, flat, and we were able to get a pull thru space that was close to the river. The traffic noise is hardly noticeable, although it is right off I-5. We woke to the sounds of birds singing which was wonderful. It is very convenient to Ashland and Medford with easy access to I-5. And it was convenient to the bike path that goes from Ashland to Central Point (it was rainy while we were there so we did not get to use it, but the entrance to the path was right outside and around the corner from the park). The bathrooms are sparkling clean. You have to pay $0.25 for your shower - but it is worth every penny. The water is hot (the entire time) and water pressure is wonderful. Twenty-five cents gets you about 15 minutes which is plenty of time to take a good shower. And, they even have music playing in the bathrooms, which I thought was a great touch. The people at the campground were very friendly and they even gave us free cookies and candy when we checked in. They have free wireless and although the signal strength was not really strong, it was strong enough to get around to most sites on the internet (our Verizon wireless card did not get very good reception, but I think this is an Oregon thing). We would definitely stay here again.
If you are looking for an inexpensive campground, with no amenities, that is conveniently located to wine country - this is it! If you are looking for anything else, then skip this campground. Skyline Wilderness Park is a very basic campground. The spots were a comfortable size, however, although we had called about 30 amp service, when we arrived and went to our site we found that we were sharing an electrical box with our neighbor and he had already taken the 30 amp service. So, we were stuck with 20 amp service until he left a week later, but that worked for us okay since we did not need our AC. The other occupants in the campground were a combination of people passing through, some that looked like they lived there full time in some very run down campers, and a group of Hispanic men that lived in their camper during the week while they were working in Napa. They were extremely loud in the evening as they always sat outside with their case of beer and bottle of Jaeger. But, they did not bother anybody beyond that. The showers were just okay - not extremely clean, but not awfully dirty either. They water pressure was strong but the you could only depend on having hot water if you were the first person in the showers in the morning. There was only hot water for one shower and if you were not it (which I generally was NOT), you were left with lukewarm to cool water. The best part of the park was how quiet it was (no traffic noise at all), how dark it was (no lights at night to glare into your windows), and how convenient it was to the Silverado Trail, downtown Napa and Sonoma. And for $25/night for full hookups, you can't beat the price to be in the heart of wine country! There is a laundromat right down the street from the park and a grocery store very close by as well.
We would definitely stay at this campground again. The spaces were very large (especially for California), and the space we were in had a backyard area (not all spaces had this additional green space in the back). There are picnic benches and fireplaces provided for each space and it is clean, clean, clean. The campground is close to the highway, but the traffic noise was very minimal. It is also a nice, quick hike over to the sand dunes and beach area. The location is great as it is only 10 miles from Carmel and Monterey. There is a grocery store within a mile of the campsite and a great bagel shop as well. The bathrooms were very clean, the water was hot, and the water pressure was strong. We had the electricity go out in the campground one morning while we were showering, but it came back on about 10 minutes later. There is also a large rec room, a small playground for the little ones, and propane sold on site. Of course, for $65/night, we would expect to have a high quality campground and we were not disappointed at all.
We loved this RV park. The location and views from the campground are both fantastic as you are on a bluff, above the PCH, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The spaces are good size (especially for California where spaces can tend to be very close together) and have a picnic table. However, the spaces are not flat. We had to spend a considerable amount of time leveling our trailer and even then it was not perfect. The bathrooms were very clean, never crowded, had hot water (except one morning where I could only get lukewarm water), and the shower pressure was very strong. The laundry room was small but adequate. The washers were small and cost $2.00, while the dryers were large and cost $1.00. The laundry room was a bit crowded, but I was still able to get my laundry done over a several hour period of time. The WiFi was very weak and unusable so do not plan on using that at your sight. The people in the office were very friendly and helpful. I had read some reviews of this campground that said they were "Nazi" like in their enforcement of the rules, but we did not find this to be true at all. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!
We stayed here for five weeks (hence the lower price as we got the monthly rate, which at this time of the year is a bargain for anywhere in California) and absolutely loved this RV park. The location is spectacular - so close to Dana Point, Crystal Cove, Laguna, Newport Beach and Huntington. There is a wonderful bike route running right through the resort that leads to a wildlife refuge. The bike route along the PCH is a close car ride away. The resort is wonderful! The pool area is gorgeous with a heated pool and jacuzzi. The pool is generally deserted - so on the weekdays you will have it to yourself. The laundry room is clean and very large - you can always get a washer and dryer. And there is a coin machine in it as well (although I twice had it short change me - but if you run over to the office they will make you whole). The bathrooms are very clean (and you will notice the enormous maintenance staff always cleaning them - they are usually on site by 8 am), generally have hot water (sometimes it was lukewarm) with great water pressure. The park is very clean, the sites are small but wide enough to fit your camper with slide outs. Although they say you cannot park your car so that it is hanging out on the gutter of the road, everyone does it and the park does not seem to enforce this rule. WiFi is spotty the further away from the office that you get (we were one of the furthest spots from the office and it was not useful enough for much). The park is very quiet although it is in the flight path of the airport and the planes start flying at 7 am. But I would rather have planes then traffic noise personally. There is a workout facility that you can use at the marina next door - we didn't use it but it has the basic equipment you could need to get a decent workout (it was small, though). You can rent kayaks on site at the harbor, although we never did this. Overall, this is one of the best RV parks we have ever stayed in and it was easy to see why so many of the long term residents actually use this as their permanent home.
