This is by far the lowest rating I have ever given an RV park. The only positive things I can think of is that my site was reasonably level and the Wifi was pretty good. The negatives include a terribly junky atmosphere, sewer treatment pond right next to park, interior roads full of huge potholes, only one small, overfilled dumpster. Mostly permanent RVs and while I have no issue with this per se, this place is a repository of badly abused campers with young families living in them. I would never stay here again. The $25 fee reflects an Escapee discount, otherwise it's $30.
Very well-maintained park. Level sites, good Wi-Fi, fair CATV, helpful owner. Yes, there are a lot of permanent residents there but their sites are tidy and clean and I don't consider it an issue. If there is one negative, it is the traffic noise but it's good for an overnight in a convenient location. I would stay here again.
Hard to rate this campground. Pros: Peaceful and well maintained; very nice staff; lots of fishing spots; excellent laundry room; very handy for Mt. St. Helens. Cons: Sites close together; park is carpeted with dung from the huge flocks of Canada geese that reside there so one must walk circumspectly; no longer has CATV. WiFi is inconsistent but they are in the process of upgrading the WiFi system. I would visit this park again if in the area.
Price reflects limited income senior pass. An old CCC park but still nice. As the weather was gloomy and cold, I chose to stay in the hookup area, which is like a parking lot, with paved, level sites with water and electric but no privacy. There is grass between the sites and picnic tables. The woodsy sites were more attractive-looking but perhaps not very level. Great trail system affording a nice, long, but easy hike. Didn't use the restrooms. Would return but would choose to stay in the no-hookup area with more seclusion and scenery.
The camping area is very tight and very gloomy with few level sites suitable for RVs. Sites are quite close together. There was no campground host nor any sign of staff. Self check-in. The park as a whole is quite pretty but very old, and the camping area is not its best feature. On a hot day in summer it would be a good place to escape the heat, as all the sites are thoroughly shaded. While I may choose to visit the day-use area again, I would probably not choose to camp here.
One of the best state parks I've ever visited. Great level, paved sites, plenty of privacy, beautifully maintained. The high-numbered sites are close to the beach, with trails. Will definitely stay here again and again.
Been here many times for good reason. A very well maintained park with good Wi-Fi (depending on the time of day) and an excellent adjoining long walking trail that follows the river (not part of the park but follows the perimeter). Easy to access from I-5 and yet away from freeway noise.
Beautiful state park with excellent hiking trails and lush, shady sites. Not for big rigs. There were a few 30' or larger RVs but most of the parking pads [lined with logs] are narrow but the sites are roomy and quite private. Gorgeous, well kept grounds and the lake is for non-motorized watercraft only, so quiet prevails. Excellent Verizon signal. Will definitely visit again.
This is a beautiful park! I had a nice, private no-hookup campsite facing the lake, very woodsy, mossy, green and very quiet [stayed Sunday to Wednesday--the weekend crowd had gone]. I did not use the public restrooms. Nice hiking trails along the lake. The $11/night rate reflects my WA state limited-income senior pass. Will definitely revisit this park.
Only spent one night and it was enjoyable, although the check-in process was confusing. The sites are mostly quite small and not level but many have a nice ocean view. There is considerable highway traffic from Hwy 101. Price reflects Senior Pass rates.
Great sites that back up right to the beach. These had been mostly reserved [even in October on a weekday!] so I settled for a non-beachfront site. Electric only sites. No trees, sites rather close together for a state park but a small park with easy access to the ocean and views from almost every site. A very popular park, especially during razor clam season. Price reflects senior off-season pass.
Very nice, well-kept park with friendly staff. Pretty surroundings, very rural but with nicely landscaped grounds. Most of the summer residents had flown south so there were plenty of available full hookup sites. As an SKP member, I plan to return for a longer stay.
Beautiful park, well-maintained with spacious sites with mature trees and grass. Good trails to both the Dosewallips River and to Hood Canal. Lots of bald eagles and some ospreys. Will definitely come again and stay longer. Price reflects senior off-season pass rates.
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.
This was a very pleasant overnight stay in a shady loop which I had all to myself. Since it is very close to US 12, there is traffic noise but the sound of the rushing Tieton River cancels it out. The rate reflects the America the Beautiful senior pass rate. Will definitely visit here again.
This is the second visit to this campground and it doesn't disappoint. Older but well-maintained, it has a pleasant rural feel on a small golf course. The Wi-Fi was great. Lots of old trees surround the sites which can require care in backing in but the resulting shade is welcome.
Gorgeous trails and overall nicely maintained. Beach access is not handy from most sites but getting there on the trails is part of the fun. Some are bike trails, paved. Verizon cellular service available, at least in H-loop. Would visit again and stay longer to further explore the park.
Some very cramped sites and I witnessed some bigger rigs having a lot of difficulty getting into their sites with the tree branches hanging low. Beach access was good and the park seemed well maintained, otherwise. Verizon cellular service seemed available throughout the park.
Did not have reservations so had to take a 'dry' site, which was fine. Convenient beach access and good Verizon service in the A-loop. Not as scenic as some other Oregon State Parks and off the beaten path so may be not worth the drive for just one night.
This place seems to get better and better. Peaceful, well-groomed, large, full hookup sites, gorgeous view of the Columbia River. Yes, it gets windy--sometimes very windy--but mornings are usually calm. I didn't take a waterfront pull-through for $31 but they are well worth it. Since I wasn't towing my toad, I picked a back-in site and left the pull-throughs for those who needed them. I still had a nice view of the river. Certainly will stay here again.
We've stayed at this park often over the years and it seems to be deteriorating somewhat. Still a nice park with large sites, but not as meticulously maintained as in the past. The free Wi-fi wasn't working [they were supposed have it up and running] and the cable TV was very limited. We would stay here again.
Nice park--we've stayed here before just overnight and found it satisfactory. Quiet [at least, until the thunderstorm rolled in!] and well-maintained. The laundry facilities are pretty limited: Four washers and one was out of order. We would stay here again.
Very pleasant park, well maintained and well managed, with level, terraced sites. Some of the directional arrows are somewhat confusing. You might want to walk your exit route before pulling out in your rig. We would definitely stay here again.
This park has all you need, but the sites are not very level, are very close together, the WiFi is barely there, and, as others have pointed out, there are a lot of permanent residents with some pretty rundown rigs. Not too bad an overnight spot but wouldn't do for a destination park. One of the pluses includes proximity to Starbucks and some other eateries within [it looked like] walking distance. Another plus is the friendly proprietor. I might stay here again, but it's not likely.
Mixed bag. The high points: Clean, attractive, secure and well-maintained park; level sites, friendly staff. The low points: You need to pay a deposit for a key to the restrooms/showers. I declined, but didn't realize [and wasn't told] that a key was required to use the exit gate to the dog walk! If you want your deposit back, you can't leave very early in the morning, which is why I didn't get one. The only dumpsters are out by the exit. Quirky: The speed limit is 7 mph. Not 5, not 10, but 7. I might stay here again, but only if necessary.
It is certainly not a scenic place, but a good basic park with what you need for an overnight stay. WiFi was fine and Cable TV was good, too. The park host very helpful and nice. I would stay here again if passing through the area.
This is a beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained park. Check-in was pleasant, and the staff was helpful. The only negative is the lack of a pet area. They want you to walk your pets outside of the park, according to their rule sheet, and there are 'no pet' signs just about everywhere. Since 'outside the park' puts you onto a busy street, it's a little frustrating for pet owners. We would stay here again, though.
This is a nicely managed park, and, with rhododendrons and lobelias between the sites, a very attractive one, too. There was a pleasant receptionist, easy check-in, nice, level sites, good Wi-Fi. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a ten is the poorly marked and quite confusing entrance. You actually enter the 'RV Storage' area and just proceed forward. And the sign is very hard to read, too. But this is a great park, and we will return.
Hard park to rate. On one hand, it's typically KOA, being both old and expensive, with a rather steep entry, a confusing layout and unlevel sites. On the other hand, it's very well maintained and with trees and grass at every site. It's in a very pretty setting. They also have an elaborate 'doggy playground'. I did not use any of the restroom or laundry facilities. The 'cable' TV was very limited but the Wi-Fi was good.
Hadn't planned to stay here, but blew in about 2pm to get out of the wind. The office person was efficient, if a bit curt. I was a little disappointed that there was no laundry, as the Trailer Life Directory indicated,, because I'd hoped to use the extra time by washing a load. I didn't use the restroom facilities. The spaces are big [you actually use two wide] and there is free Wifi. A pretty good value for an overnight stop.
This park might be fine for a winter destination park but as a stopover late in the season it is lacking. I arrived at 3PM and, though the sign said the office was open until 4PM, it apparently closed at 2. I had wanted Wifi--even at their $5/day fee--but couldn't get it, as the office was closed. A security person took my camping fee. Did not use any of the facilities but the park looked clean and tidy.
A very nice surprise! Beautifully landscaped smaller park with level sites, each enclosed by oleander hedges and the entry road lined with tall palms which are illuminated at night. Gorgeous flowers and desert shrubs placed with care. Spotless restrooms, small but nicely maintained pool. Hosts are very helpful. We found TV reception virtually nonexistent, but it was no big deal for one night. This park is well planned and meticulously cared for. Yes, we would definitely stay here again.
Overall, a nice park but the roads [entry and interior] are very rough and sites are not level. They have a lot of customers, so it would seem they could afford to fix the roads. Also, typical for KOA, everything is extra $: Cable TV, sewer, Wi-Fi. We would probably stay here again.
I love this park! The beauty of the setting just filled me with peace and contentment. The new section has huge sites, easy to use water and electric hookups and clean, well-designed restrooms [the showers were out of order the day we were there due to a line break]. The dump station is also well laid out. The campsites are staggered in such a way as to provide a lovely and private view from each space. We will probably come back and stay longer. I would like to enjoy some of the hiking trails--it was too hot while we were there.
The pros: Nicely appointed and spotlessly clean restrooms and showers; owners extremely nice and helpful; Wi-Fi outstanding. The cons: Basically, a gravel parking lot with a lot of permanent residents [not that I have anything against a park renting to long-term residents--I don't! But it does affect the overall appearance and ambiance of a park]. We would stay here again.
A bit seedy and not particularly well maintained. Mostly permanent residents. The restrooms were very old and the showers had barely any water pressure. The WiFi was only accessible in the laundry room. We probably will not return.
We always stay here as a 'base camp' for visiting our Western Washington family. To approach it from the freeway, you pass through a kind of industrial area and you might think 'Oh no!', but it's a very nice park, well maintained, nice and helpful staff. CATV & WiFi excellent. Restaurant on site, but we've never tried it.
We were quite surprised to find the cost increase! However, the park is still lovely and we enjoyed our visit. Sites are roomy and reasonably level, nice view of the river, and beautiful trees, many in bloom. We have stayed here often and will stay here again, although not as often, with the price hike.
We had found this park satisfactory on a prior visit. However, when we arrived, the office was in chaos and we had to wait for at least half an hour to check in. Our site was very unlevel and the CATV did not work. The free WiFi was very good, though, and the landscaping was beautiful, with rhododendrons and azaleas blooming all around. Due to the high price and unlevel sites, we would not stay here again.
