WOW !!!!!! I have always wanted to stay either here or at the resort next door and we finally got to. I'm really glad that we picked this one. Absolutely awesome set-up with wide roads and great side by side hookups. I don't normally like them, but these are well thought out. It cost $5 more for the river front, but after the discounts, it came to less than the $5 extra. Fresh cut, lush grass all the way to the river, fire pits, and BBQs in central areas, and they supply the firewood. We will definitely be staying here again.
Been here before and will stay here again. Great place. Check-in was easy even though they were backing up, but the folks at the desk have a system and it works as long as you follow the lead. You pull up and they take your license number and then when you pull up to the door, there are just two of you that go in and when you are finished and your guide takes you to your site, the next two rigs pull up. Great sites and level. There is a shuttle on call for the casino and you get a discount if you have a players card. The only thing I didn't appreciate was the rifle range just up the canyon from the campground and I don't want to have to listen to that as I also have it at home.
Rated a nine as there are no kids facilities here, but it is a really nice place. ALL back in sites, but easy access. Good places to eat in walking distance as well as a great produce stand and deli there. It is close to a large marina complete with saws and sea lions, as well as a couple of fishing and whale watching charters. It is an easy run down to Monterey and Caramel to the south or to Santa Cruz to the north.
I am rating this a nine because of the side by side setup here. Everything else was great. We got there right after the office closed, but the lady came out and chose a site for us and said to pay in the AM and then opened the gate for us. It's a code gate and she has a remote. We got hooked up and walked the dog and got a look at where they are totally redoing the other side of the campground. We stayed here a number of years ago in a travel trailer and they had us backed up all the way to the fence and then complained about our 'Burb sticking kinda out in the road.That ain't gonna happen there anymore with the long sites they have put in now. They are still side by side, but nice setups.
Nothing wrong with this place. We've stayed here before for several days at a time and did it again this year. Check-in was great and friendly. Security is good and unobtrusive. The little store was good and so was the food in the little cafe. Didn't get to use the pool or the golf, but it looked as if others were enjoying it. The man at the concierge desk was unobtrusive about asking me if I wanted tickets when he saw me looking at the calendar of events in town.
Nothing wrong with this KOA. Yes, it was windy and yes, it was all gravel and yes, it is in the middle of nowhere, but this is desert country and it was a great place. Nice long pull-throughs and good placement on the utilities. There are nice tables and great fire pits. The check-in is great and easy. I guess it is hard to get a site here in the summer as the fishing is great and there are hundreds of miles of ATV trails that can be accessed from the park. It does have a pool and small playground and corrals for horses and the lady said they have weekend movies for the kids in the summer.
I'm giving this KOA a 10 even though the roads are a bit tight. If you can't maneuver through it, you shouldn't be driving a big rig. The park was clean and well trimmed, and the desk person was great. The only downside was that the water pressure was very HIGH and I thought my 12 y/o built in regulator could handle it... Wrong...Blew the hose fitting loose. Oh well, I was planning on replacing it anyway and did. They also have a car wash next door and it has the same high water pressure and was great for getting the green stuff off of the toad after a winter in WA. We will stay here again when in the area.
We have stayed here a couple of times and the only thing different is that they are either upgrading some old sites or are adding some new ones. Check-in is easy and fun, the desk lady is funny, and they take you to your site and help you park. (Don't flirt with the lady at the desk too much as the old guy that takes you to your site is her husband and also funny.) It was quite cold and he recommended that we put water in our tanks and then pull the hose, which we did, as it had frozen solid the night before in Prosser and I had to put it away unrolled.
We stayed here last year at this time and only the weather was better. That's not to say that the park wasn't better as I give this park a 10 even without sewer hookups. The staff is great and the sites are always clean and the security is top notch. The best sites, IMHO, are the ones on the lower loop which would be 20-30 something. After staying at this park for two years in a row, I'd really like to see what some of the county's other camping parks are like.
We have stayed here before and have had good experiences, BUT this time was different. We got there and asked for one of the several sites we had stayed in before and was told they weren't available and she put us in one next to them. Well,no-one showed in them for two days. The site she gave us had a tight entrance between a concrete power box on one side and a tree and pole on the other. I checked the tree and watched the box to make sure the toad cleared it,which it did barely, but missed the three inch limb stub on the tree and got the mirror, oops. Got in and hooked up and the power box took several attempts to get 50 amp power and I finally turned on ALL the circuit breakers and Voila, I had power. Tried the internet and that was a no-go uh-uh, no-way anytime. The neighbors all said the same thing and that it's been that way for AT LEAST three months. The office said that they'd check the box, but that didn't work.. Oh and guess who was parked RIGHT UNDER the wi-fi box. Told the office about the tree and there wasn't really any response, except they'd look into it. The guy in the next site said that one trailer had caught it already, two months ago and there had been two MHs that had taken their mirrors off too. The limb is very hard to see as it blends in with the tree. I do like the place, but the management was not very forthcoming and I may stay here again, but in a different site.
Well, we're back here again and got our bag of free oranges. In fact as we stayed here twice on our trip this time, we got a bag both times. The sites are great. The office folks are great and check-in is easy, especially if you've been here before. We'll be back. The nutshop around the corner is great, the trees were in bloom and it smelled awesome.
Rate is Passport America. We stayed here to visit relatives and it was a very handy location. Easy on and off the freeways. There is a shopping center within walking distance. It seemed that the overnight sites are very new. We enjoyed our stay and will be back when visiting.
I stayed here previously in 2003. (See first review.) Have to say that I was disappointed in the condition of this park. The sites are still grass and gravel. The trees are still in all their glory. The roads are kind of rough. We never did see the manager. Self registered and found our own site. There are a lot of full-timers. Some of the sites are run down, but it was quiet. I'll probably stay here again because it is handy to town.
We stayed here as our favorite RV park in the area is now closed. I was kind of worried about traffic as we wanted to go to L&C college area and the Terwilliger area, but it really turned out ok. Just don't try to get in and out of town during rush hour, but we did find a couple of alternates. The park is very nice and easy to get to and around in. The lady in the office was very nice and helpful. We stayed here in the spot across the street on our very first trip in a travel trailer 10-12 years ago, and I don't think the place has changed at all. Very nice then and still nice now.
The only reason I knock this down is for the traffic noise. We stayed here for one night on the way home from California and it's a great place as it's an easy in and out and well laid out for just pulling in and setting up. The owner/manager is a really great guy and we met several interesting folks out walking their dogs. We've stayed here before and will again.
This is a really nice place, but as previous folks have said some of the sites are kind of narrow and a bit awkward to get into. We got there after the office closed and had to self-register which was OK. We did see the manager the next day and he was really nice. I would stay here again as it's quiet, outside of town, and actually well kept.
I am rating this park a 10 even without sewer. The staff is out of sight and the security is great. The sites are kept clean. The only downside was that it rained twice while we were there and the dirt turns into a real sticky mess. We stayed there for ten days while taking care of the grand kids who lived about 10 minutes away. The $25 reflects $24 for the site and $1 for the dog. It is really handy to a LOT of different shopping centers in the area. We will return.
Price reflects CCUSA price. We stayed here for three nites as a base camp for shopping, outlet mall. many antique shops, and wine tasting. Heyman's wine and beer tasting. Dick's Beer and deli. Sites are long and level, but the hook-ups are in the rear, so you need to unhook in a MH unless you have a long hose and power cord. There are several sites that need trimming for sat, but that's no big deal. There were a number of perms here, but were, on the whole pretty clean. I don't rate a place down for having perms unless it's run-down. Easy off the freeway and pretty straight forward to get there. We have stayed here several times before and will be back again.
I have stayed at the highly rated CG to the south of this one,but decided to stay here again. The place is a bit tight in places,but you shouldn't have any problems and the rule about driving on the grass is because several folks have parked their toads and ATVs on the grass and not on the pavement. They don't really say anything about the dogs going where ever they want, but I never saw any poo anywhere in the park and that's a change. I asked for a satellite TV site and the reception was great,as was the Wi-Fi. The restrooms were clean and warm. I will be using this CG again whenever I visit Portland.
Once again we were here for the annual RV.net summer mini rally and a good time was had by all. We were very happy with the help and the facilities. What more could you want with being able to sit out in the hot sun and look out over Puget sound and the Cascade mountains from Mt Baker to Mt Rainier. We were only 50' from the water. The restrooms, laundry and showers are kept up quite well. There are three restaurants on site from the small Sunset Cafe to the Shanghai rest to T's which is the nicest. It is within walking distance of downtown Port Townsend with all of its little shops and a number of very good eating places. There is also a farmer's market two days a week uptown. This is a great place to stay for either a nite or for an extended stay.
Reservations were easy, as was check-in when we got here. They even had somehow accessed my GS# and the discount was all figured in already. Yes the strips are funny, but if you line up correctly, you shouldn't have problems with your jacks. The utility configuration is basically normal. The Wi-Fi is great and they even have fire pits available for people who want fires. They also have a good supply of excellent Washington wines in the office for sale. And yes, you are in walking distance to a really great wine tasting place. There are also a couple of micro breweries in town and several really good restaurants. I'm looking forward to coming back next spring for our NW RV.net rally being held here.
Wow, this is about as good as it gets for a state park. Well maintained areas, level paved large sites, great camp hosts. We got the last spot available on-line for this at the last minute as the parks we tried for were filled. We were very happy with it. No cable TV, Verizon was spotty at times, and no Wi-Fi. Didn't need or want it anyway. But the satellite came in well.
We were welcomed by a very friendly staff and check-in was quick and easy. The site was as told: level, etc. The grounds were well maintained. They were still repairing some damage caused by earlier high water which came through some of the cg. We will maybe be going back later in the summer to raft the Yakima river as they have a launch area and shuttle service for rafters. By the way, some of the work-kampers were a hoot.
Rate reflects regular price, then we stayed two more nights at CC rates of $18 each. We arrived at 3 PM on a Sunday and the office had closed at 11AM. Took one of the suggested sites and check-in the next day was ok. Staff is really very helpful. Sites are just ok in length at the $36 level, and longer ones are $4 more. It is a tad bit tight. I saw two 40' rigs backing out of their sites as they couldn't leave going forward as there are stakes right at the right front corner of your sites. I will probably have to do the same. You also have to unhook your toad at the office before you go to your site. Be careful pulling into the cg as the driveway entrance is a bit steep.They say they are pet friendly, but have a no pet area. And you have to keep your pet on a 6' leash. Still and all it's a good place to stop.
We had to wait till 4:30 PM till they finally let us in to the park. This was after we had to leave Grayland Beach at 6:30 AM because of the tsunami and reflects the care they take for their guests. The staff was very upbeat and the campground was very well kept up for this time of the year. Weather was not too bad and we met some really neat folks and that's one reason that I love state parks.
This is a great park. We were finally able to get one of the great LOOONGGGG pull-throughs right against the dunes. The other sites are really nice back-ins in the trees. Been here before and will return. Had to pull the slides and drop the satellite dish the first night as the wind was blowing up to 60-65 MPH. So we changed sites to the bit more sheltered site behind us. Friday morning we were told to leave at 6:30 AM because of the Tsunami warning. The staff is great here. $6 reflects the olde guy pass.
I'm giving this place a eight for the quality of the whole place. I would give it a 10 except for the difficulty of getting through the gate, hard turn through a narrow gate and then another hard left after that. The fact that we got 30 amps instead of 50, that we hung over at each end even though there were many longer sites available and I told the YOUNG lady how long we were. The park is really nice and well kept up. There is a nice dog run and it seemed as if the full timers I met while I was walking the dog were really nice. There are lots of things for kids here, pool, petting farm and play areas. There are even Peacocks running around. I thought the price was a tad bit high, especially for it being off-season, but I guess that goes along with it's being a KOA. Would stay again though.
Price reflects Camp Club USA and has to be cash/check. Nice place and we've stayed here before. Sites are mostly level and are long enough not to have to unhook. It's quiet and easy in and out. Needs to have the trees grow faster so that you can have shade in the summer. Wi-Fi was REALLY good.
I still rate this as a ten, even though some of the sites are a tad small and there are no pull-throughs. There also aren't any sewer hook-ups, but it's easy to dump and re-park. This was the first time with the MH, we've had a TT before, and pulling forward into your site with the W/S facing the river and the sunset is just plain awesome. Found out that they are going to make some REALLY nice sites on the point where there used to be a cafe and I'll be trying for one of those on the next trip to see the MIL.
The price reflects being there over the Thanksgiving weekend and includes the tourist tax of 10% per night. Yes, the Wi-Fi could be free, but it was very good. Our reason for staying here was that it was the closest to the relatives we were visiting. We enjoyed our stay there and on check-in when I asked to have a site near the dog run, there was no problem with changing my res. We ate several meals there and the food was more than adequate. Didn't swim as it was windy and 40 some degrees. My sister was impressed with the little putting course and said that he had never seen one with grass. Security was pleasant and good and on a whole the whole experience was a good one. It is interesting that you have three people staying at the same park at the same time and two are positive and one completely neg.
We were gonna stay across the street at the NP CG, but the DW wanted h/us as we were gonna be here for several days. The check-in process was slow as they register for the resort here too and there was a snooty German couple that was asking all kinds of questions and pretending they didn't know anything. Then there was a guy checking in for a whole group with all their different cards,etc. When the clerk got to me, he apologized and I was out of there in no-time. Security took us to our site in the back and we set up. Cable didn't work, but I traced it down the next day and fixed it, for which I got a couple of free beers in the saloon. It is sandy and windy and we were backed up to the fence, but hey, this is Death Valley. The General Store is great, the Saloon is also great and the restaurant, while a bit pricey, was world class. We really enjoyed our stay there. However, the last night the wind did blow over 60 mph and we rocked, but not as bad as at the NP CG across the street.
This is also a ten park even w/o paved sites. The roads are all paved and the sites are level gravel and in between mature orange trees and the Oranges are really good. The check-in is easy and the sites are plenty large enough for any rig. The full-timers are neat and have pretty much their own area. Small store on-site and coffee and goodies for breakfast. We chose this one as it was closer to our route to Death Valley. Make sure to go around the corner, they should have a gate in the back fence, and check out the fruit and nut place. Good stuff and the lady there gave me a bag to pick Satsumas from their orchard and were they good. Would stay here again.
Now this is a ten. Nice easy check-in, friendly help, level sites and the Firestone Winery out the gate and up the hill. We were here for one night and weren't disappointed. Good warm weather and REALLY good wine. There are two levels and we were on the main one with there being one up the hill with some smaller sites and some large ones with views. There are 75 wineries in the area and the Firestone-Walker brewery, so there is plenty of liquid refreshment. We'll be back when we can stay more than one night.
The price reflects the Camp Club USA discount. This is an interesting park and is kind of hard to figure how to get to your space. We self registered, then the owner showed up and we got 'er done. There was no shade as the trees are new. It is a really quiet place to stay. It is well located to use as a base camp for traveling around Eureka, which is a really neat place. Make sure to eat at the Samoa Cookhouse as it's a real treat.
The price reflects the Camp Club USA discount. This is a nice little park and is well laid out with poured pads and gravel interior roads. The full timers that I met walking the dog were a friendly bunch and fun to talk with. There is no shade as the trees are too small as yet. The owner/managers were a hoot and there is a small store in the office. We would stay here again.
We stayed here twice on this trip and this price reflects the Camp club price. When we came in on the 1st of Dec they charged us full price of $43 as we didn't make res 24 hrs in advance and I couldn't find that in the book. If I had known that I would have stayed at another RV Park just up the road which was nicer. Sites are tight here and you have to pay extra for a long site if you don't want to unhook. There are lots of rules. I got yelled at because my dog did his business on someone's site, even though they weren't here and it was picked up. I will say that the ladies in the office were really nice. We will be staying at the other place next time to Portland.
Have stayed here before when visiting Portland and will probably stay here again. Of all the CGs we've stayed at here, this seems to be the handiest, friendliest, etc. Yes, some of the roads can be a tad bit tight, but if you're careful, you're OK. It is quiet, green, has a shopping center within easy distance on both sides of the freeway and is easy on and off OK.
Rate is for Camp Club USA. Moved here for a night before heading for the beach. Have stayed here before,but it was in the winter and 10 degrees, so it was a bit friendlier weather wise. Sites are back to back,but large enough for almost all but the longest rigs and are gravel and level. It seems that they check them quite often and keep them that way. There are a number of permanents here, but they are all well kept and the people I met while walking the dog were friendly. Stayed here before and will stay here again.
I was here for Camp Frieghtliner in August with 90 degree temps and there were tons of rigs with multi A/C and the power never wavered. This place was built several years ago with the idea that people getting their rigs worked on at CC, Monaco, etc could stay here, but then most of those shut down and they haven't finished parts of it. It still is an Awesome place to stay. The sites are wide enuff, long enough and the help is knowledgeable about the local area and very friendly. I really hope that they can keep it open and I will be staying there again next time I'm in the area. It's great being able to sit out in the front and watch the river run by. It is also a Camp Club USA site, but I forgot when I checked in.
The rate reflects Camp Club USA, but this is a membership CG so member rates are lower. Not too many people here so I got a front row site which was close to the beach route. The site was ample, pull in and level. The beach was an easy 1/4 mile and then miles each way to walk. It is also one of the prime Razor Clam beaches on the coast so when we left,the sites were starting to really fill up as it was a clam tide weekend. The people working there were VERY friendly. Had to pay for cable as the wind was blowing so hard the first day that I didn't want to put up my sat dish. Will go there again.
Went here with some friends for an RV.net mini rally. It is a membership CG and the rates reflect my non-member rate. I somehow managed to pick a site that was grass and a bit unlevel and was behind several trees so my dish didn't work. Had to pay extra for cable.The saving grace to the CG was that it was the close of season BBQ and they cooked a whole pig and it was wonderful. Everyone that we met were very friendly.
Very great first impression as check-in was quick, informative and the young lady was very friendly. Our site was large enough so we didn't have to unhook and easy to get into as the streets are wide. The store is well stocked and they have rugs a lot cheaper than the same ones at CW. Clean laundry room, arcade and a small grill. They also have rental bikes and surreys. The Wi-Fi was great and free. Great experience. Would stay here again.
Like no KOA we've ever stayed at. No add on and the registrar was great about rates and sites. The restaurant and bar were top notch and the food was awesome, but then so was the lodge. The rate reflected the winter rate and discounts. This park has a large number of cabin style tent units, and lodge type cabins. There is a section of view sites, a section of back-ins with wooden patios under shade trees. The pull-throughs had plants and flowers between each site and were long enough for almost any rig. The ocean is across the Hwy about 1/2 mile or so, and there are several state beaches close, as is Pigeon Point light. There are trips to Ano Nuevo bay to see the Elephant Seals. This place is so nice that I would rank it with the best Washington and Oregon state parks: WOW. I could definitely make an attempt to stay here again, even if I have to go out of my way.
I have seen it several times as we drove by and this trip it worked out. It was after hours, 5:30, when we pulled in and dark. Did the late register thing and got to our site. Ops, it's a bit tight and was exactly 55' long and the slab is about 9' wide.. Wound up with the rear end hanging over the grass. Stepped out of the "EX" and, squish into mud over my sandals. Seems they water every day, whether it needs it or not and it's really wet. That said, it is a really nice park and the golf course looks nice, even tho I don't golf. Didn't get a chance to get to the hotel tho.
Great place with friendly employees. Most of the office people are family and treat you as such also. Sites are a tad bit tight, but serviceable. Facilities are well kept up and some of the rules are strict, but they seem to be easy on them. You are only an easy block from the ocean and the trail is level and safe. The CG is well fenced and the trail runs under the train tracks and the owners are paying to have a mural painted there. The dog run is a joke, but you can take your dog to the little park on the way to the ocean and if your careful, you can let them run. DON"T TAKE THEM ON THE BEACH. the people who live there will call the police in a second and it's a $150 fine. Wi-Fi is excellent. The rate reflects a combination of a weekly rate, two holiday periods and the dog.
Great place. What more could you want in a small place. There is a small store, friendly employees, level sand sites, nice pool and hot tub. The showers and restrooms are immaculate and there is a masseuse on site. The Crest Bar and Grill in the main building is great and even has music most nights. You can also have meals delivered to your site and they have Happy Camper wines for sale. Will definitely be back here.
Ran out of options as we came down I-5 and saw the big red sign and pulled in here. They don't need speed bumps as the potholes take care of that problem. Had to wait for the attendant, but she was very nice. Got to our spot and really wondered what we had gotten into, but it turned out to be a quiet place with a bunch of permanents. The restrooms and laundry room were very clean, but well used and could use some TLC. Oh well,what can you expect for $20?
Wow, this really does rate their 10/10/10 rating. We were met by an attendant and escorted to the check-in,met by a very friendly person there and after signing in we were taken to our site and aided in parking. All the facilities are excellent and in a few years there will be some nice shady sites. Will be staying here again.
We had stayed here before and wanted to try it in the summer and wouldn't you know it, but the weather changed and was worse than when we were here before. Still was a good time and we love the fact that both the river and the ocean are so close. The sites are gravel and the grass is dry, but the Wi-Fi was the best I saw on our whole 4 week trip. Will probably stay here again this winter when we come back thru.
We have stayed here several times before on the way to CA and really have never seen the problems that the last few people have. We stayed here three nights this time and will be here again. I have a dog and walk him 2 or 3 times a day around the park and have found some very friendly full timers there. It is a very neatly kept park and has rules for a reason. Yes, some of the sites are a little small, but they are manageable with a bit of care. We saw a guy cut the corner short into his site with his 40'+ MH with the toad attached and he took out the power box and was yelling and screaming about how tight the place was. Turned out he'd only been driving an "A" for two months and had never even had an RV before, plus no driving lessons.
It's all that the other reviewers have said it is, except that I wouldn't know about the office people. I rolled in at 5:02 and the office closed at 5 and there was no-one in sight. The system for self-registration was simple and the open sites were marked. Nice level sites, but short and I had to unhook as my TV was 5 feet in the street. I'm 55 feet overall. As I was leaving early, this was an inconvenience. The only sites long enough were the $50 premium sites. Full of full-timers as there is a lot of construction in the area, but all were neat and clean. I would stay there again if it were necessary.
Stayed here for one night on the way to Portland and it was just what I needed for a run into and out of Portland in the morning. The sites are a tad bit short for you to remain hooked up, but then I'm 55 feet overall. It is a tad bit tight and there are a lot of full timers here, but they were friendly. Lot's of fast food places nearby and it's easy on and off the freeway. Would stay here again if needed.
When we camped here, we were one of three rigs in the whole campground and it was heaven. The rate is for the Washington State Park off-season Senior pass. The water was shut-off as was the sewer, but that didn't matter. Really nice place on the river and the rangers didn't mind that the dog was off-leash some of the time. The whole area is great and we went to Stonehenge, Maryhill Museum and the Maryhill Winery too. Will try to get a reservation there for next summer, if possible as it is a VERY POPULAR spot.
When we got there it was VERY CHILLY and we took a waterfront site. Got all setup and discovered the water to that loop was shutoff (no signage about it). Had to unset and move to another loop where they had water. Oh well, that's winter camping. LOT'S of deer roaming through the CG. This is another of the Wash State Parks gems. There is another cg section, west, and that's not as nice.Try to get a res in the east cg. Oh,and we had about two inches of snow the second night, but that's not the cg's fault.
The rate reflects the Wash state old guys off season pass. Can't say much more about this park than has already been said. We there on a chilly day and the place was about 1/2 full when we rolled in at 12:30 and by the time we were set up, it was full except for the tent sites. We'll be going back there again.
Awesome cg. Large sites with real lots of green grass in between. I would imagine that you need res way in advance for summer, BUT no dogs allowed from Memorial Day until Labor Day, not even in your rig. Wi-Fi basically at gate house or close sites. A bunch of wineries in the area and they are all very good with 5 of them having excellent restaurants.
Really nice park. Some airport noise and no freeway noise,even though it's close. Didn't have a bit of problem getting in or out and I'm over 55' total. And yes the MH was still parked in the same place. Management was very friendly and helpful.The price, $66 total, was for two nights and the third free. NICE. Will stay there again when visiting grandson at school.
This is a rundown park with about two or three sites large enough for larger rigs. There are mostly permanents here in some trailers and single-wide mobiles, but they are quiet. It's very tight and really no place for a larger rig to turn around in. You pull in and then back into your site and then, if you are short enough and no one is on your right, you can turn and pull out. I had to really cramp the wheel and almost jack-knifed pulling out that way, but I didn't hit anything. Most sites are best suited for rigs under 25'. It is however, relatively inexpensive, right in the middle of downtown and easy access to the Victoria ferry.
I would have rated this a 10, but the sites are so close together that you can barely get your awnings and slides out. I could have rated it an 8, but the neighbors were so great that it was one of the best weeks we've had camping.The bay is right over the little breakwater from your campsite with a nice beach for kites, sand castles, kayaks and clamming.They are planning on doing a bit of re-habbing over the winter as far as taking four sites waterfront on one end and making them three and then in another year or two, they're going to work on the other end. We WILL be going back over the winter and next year.
This is the 3rd or 4th time we've stayed here and it's been a good experience every time, well, we did get chased out last January by a severe weather warning for ice and snow storm, but that's to be expected. It's a great location for visiting the area of the coast from Tillamook up to Astoria and there is a great little winery up the river from Wheeler.The only problem that I had was that there were single tents in some of the longer sites and that cuts them out for the bigger rigs.
We stayed here for only one night, but wouldn't have any problems staying longer. The help was great and the facilities were neat and clean. There is a putt-putt, batting cage, gym and a couple of other nice amenities like that. The only problem we had was that they put us into a spot that had a middle dump and utilities instead of a rear one and the dump pipe was higher off the ground than my dump tube, but their dump station was very handy.
We love staying here when we're here to see the in-laws.Even tho it doesn't have cable and sewer connections I still rate it a 10.Called at the last minute and they had a river front site for us and we stayed three nights and the third was 1/2 price. Will stay there any time we're in town because it's much more central than any of the others in the area. Easy on and off the freeway and right straight down the street.
MOSQUITOES,MOSQUITOES,mosquitoes. Horrible trying to unhook, set-up and then re-hook and leave. The park is nice and I hate to downgrade it because of the mosquitoes, BUT it sure isn't nice having to stay in your rig unless you're out sightseeing. Tried to have a fire and roast hot dogs and have s'mores, no-way. The site we were in was tight, but we got in with the great help of the person who showed us to it. Because of the angle of the approach, my Equal-i-zer hitch jammed and I had to pull back out into the road and unhook the hitch and then back the trailer back in with the person behind me yelling at me to hurry up. (He got in a hurry and backed his MH into a tree). The pizzas at the pizza place down the hill were great though and the scenery at both lakes was unsurpassed.
Stayed here before about 4 years ago and if anything, it's gone downhill. They do have a new bath/laundry room that is quite nice.The roads are dusty and weirdly laid out. In other words follow the map and take the right corners.It is not really big rig friendly,but you can get them in if you are careful. In some sites you have to watch the top of your rig as the trees bend over the sites and you can take out your gutters or poke holes in your A/C. Oh,and you've got to be watch real carefully if you're coming from the south as the left hand entrance sneaks up on you. The pluses are Confusion Hill is right across the highway and the Eel river is just down the hill.
I chose this park over several others because it seemed cheaper and nicer looking, but I was wrong. We arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm and after checking in they told us where our site was and no-one helped us park.The site was either a back-in or pull-through and after driving to it decided to go around the park and pull-in. This place has a WHOLE bunch of tight corners and several LARGE boulders to get past. I believe this is the tightest place I've ever been in. Finally got parked and the slides out. The front slide cleared the utilities by 6" and the rear cleared a two foot tree by 2". The tongue is 4" off the ground and the rear jacks are on 12" blocks and all the way down. It is dirty, dusty, the cable doesn't work properly (you have to plug in each TV separately. So we have cables running through the windows, and it was still snowy). Paid $71 basic fee per day, plus $5 per day for one extra person, plus $5 per day for our cockier puppy, plus $5 per day for cable, plus $10 for three days of Wi-Fi. I will say that most of the staff was friendly and the CG was full for the holiday weekend and was basically quiet, even with lots of kids. Also when we got back from the day, there was a note on the door that we were late check-out and to come to the office to take care of the extra day. Did that and discovered that they had only charged me three days DEPOSIT and not the whole four day stay and they weren't very nice about it.
Stayed here last fall and decided to try it again and we weren't disappointed. The park was almost full,but they finished cleaning a site a long termer had used all winter so we could use it.Yes,some of the turns are tight,but a good driver shouldn't have any trouble. All the full timers are very neat and the place is quiet..Will probably be here later this summer with a group.
The only thing I didn't like about this park was the road noise. If it weren't for this I would have rated it a 10. The manager was very helpful and let us know where the nearest store was and made sure that we got a long enough pull-thru site.Sites are level and yes,they do require a pad under the jacks,but big deal. They also have entertainment and BBQ's in the summer. We were impressed by the fact they not only have a dog area,but also a dog wash site. Will stay here aghain.
I've wanted to stay here for several years. It looked nice when driving by on the freeway. We finally did and it's easy on and off the freeway. The noise follows you in. We were assigned to a site and when we got there, someone was in it, so we took another one and hung out at both ends even tho we were told it was 60'. We almost didn't have enough room for the slides. It is essentially paved and had small grass patches.
I rate this place a 10 even without sewer hookups. We have stayed here before and will again. It is a bit off the freeway, but in a straight line and a lot of services available. There are riverfront sites where you can sit and watch the boats go by or fish right from the back of your rig. It's a quiet place, even on the weekends when the marina kicks in. There are some awesome boats there especially some of the old Stephens yachts that were actually built right here.
We've stayed here a couple of times before and it's a nice place for an overnight. The management is very likeable and a kick. There are a lot of permanents, but are very quiet. There are a lot of shade trees and the sites are long enough for most rigs to pull in and not unhook.
Don't always depend on the TL ratings. We drove 3 1/2 miles each way from the freeway and when we got there at 3:30PM the office was closed and it said register and then find a site. We drove through and weren't impressed with any of it. Narrow roads with overhanging trees, messy spaces, and a lot of junky permanents. I have stayed in places with worse ratings and were nicer places.
We stayed here for 5 nites and it was one of the most restful places I've stayed.It is shady with wide green sites and quiet.Yes,the roads are a bit tite,but if you're any good,you shouldn't have any trouble.Yes,the wifi is spotty,but who cares,I don't rate a park on wifi.It is one of the best parks in the area and handiest to everything and we have stayed in all the major ones.Yes,they have rules,but they were made by the people who work here,workcampers and the dog rules are stringent,but for a reason.
This is the site of the annual NW RV.net Mini rally and we love it here. There is no one in our group that says anything bad about this place and we will be coming back here again next year. Yes, it's a bit rough, but it's heavily used and is much better than it was several years ago. The sites are gravel, but basically level and the grass could use some water, but it's still better than some of the "RESORTS" I stayed in this summer for more money. The restrooms, showers and laundry room are all new and there is a nice meeting room. There are two quite good restaurants on site as well as the newly refurbished marina. We like it and use it several times a year.Oh, yes the view is an eleven and it's within easy walking to downtown. And it's Coast Guard, not Navy.
The only reason for a nine rating was that the sites are a tad bit small. Otherwise everything was great, except for the fact that there are two streets named almost the same, so you gotta read the directions very well and watch for the small signs.. The help is beyond helpful and are some of the best , funniest, people I've met on many a trip. Everything was neat and clean and we were far enuff from the freeway so there was no noise, but close enuff to get on and off easily. One of the other posters said there wasn't too much to do in the immediate areabut I disagree, you just have to go look for it.. There actually are a lot of good rests to eat at in town and a lot of other things.
Marked this down 'cuz the wind never stopped blowing,never,never..Otherwise it would be a ten. A lot of my friends have camped there and they say that it doesn't always blow all the time. Really nice cg away from the freeway and right on the bank of the mighty Columbia River where you can just sit and watch all the boats go by.. The management was very friendly and very helpful.
We had a great stay here. I have ridden or driven by this place since I was a kid and never stopped. I have seen the cabins replaced with RV sites and never stayed here till now and it was a very pleasant experience all around. It is a bit old-fashioned as RV parks go as the sites run from short to stretched and some of them are kind of weird as to the hook-ups location. The front, beach, are kind of close, but since there weren't too many sites taken, they were more than adequate.. We have decided that since it's only 45 miles from home, we'll be doing some weekend trips this winter and we'll use the front sites. The restrooms are clean, nice laundry and a very nice meeting room. Oh, and it has a sling type boat launch and TONS of Oysters which you can either pick yourself or buy in the office.
Once again this was the site of the RV.net spring rally. We had our first one here in 2003 and decided to do it again here. Once again the facilities were great as was the help that helped us to set it up. The sites were all great, and the seasonals were very neat. The only down side was that the pool was still closed and the temps were in the really high 90's. It is a great to visit the Willamette Valley wine country. Just down the road is the town of McMinnville and also the Evergreen Aviation Museum, home of the Spruce Goose.
We stayed here over the 4th and the park filled up after about 7pm. Had great neighbors and it was late night. The website shows a lot of big trees, but they have had to cut a number of them down because of age and disease. It is a great place to stay to be able to see the dinosaur experience across the street and the various dino quarries. The Coronado National Monument is a great trip as is Montrose. We went into Grand Junction, and spent some time in the shops downtown. There is also a choice of three Brewpubs there, and we went to the Kannen Valley one. We would stay in this park again..
This is a nice little cg, and the third one we tried on the pm of the 3rd of July. The young lady in the office was very helpful about getting us into a good site (new owners and great people). The sites are quite close together, but you can get slides out and in several of the sites, your awning. That really doesn't matter as you aren't here to sit out during the day. There are a lot of things to do here such as ATV, biking, river rafting and gold panning. The man next to us showed us the flakes and chunks of gold he had found that day panning, and there was almost an ounce. Even though it is right next to a major highway, there was minimal noise at night.
Stayed here for two nights as we were going to do Mesa Verde, but it was so nice and cool under the big trees that we just stayed in the park. I'm glad we stayed here instead of the ones closer to the park as they didn't have the shade this one does. The help was a bunch of fun. There was a nice pool, great looking horses for riding, good food(and bar), clean looking pool, and a pitch and putt. There are lots of ATV's, but you didn't notice them. We would really go back there if we're in the area again..
We were very pleased to have a site here in the middle of town. Yes,the sites are a bit short and a bit close together,but the trees are wonderful for their shade. It was 107 one of the days we were there, and w/o the trees we would have roasted.The restrooms were clean, and the people in the front office were very helpful. We went to the brew-pub, and it was great. We also went up-river to the Red Cliffs Lodge for lunch; some excellent wine and the local film museum is a lot more than you'd expect.
We stayed here for two nights as our Excursion blew three injectors and decided not to pull our trailer any farther. The lady at the desk was VERY helpful and found us a site, answered our questions about shops. ( I think we got ******* on the repair bill, though that was not her fault). The next day one of the hosts came around and asked if we needed to go into town, but we had decided to stay at the trailer, and then they asked if we needed anything else. I would definitely suggest staying here. Yes, there is some highway and train noise, but not noticeable. There are a number of permanents, but their sites are really kept up.
We rolled in here late in the afternoon in the middle of a MAJOR thunderstorm w/o a reservation and were surprised to find that there were sites available.This is a gem on the Columbia River. It is a county park and marina with a great boat launch. The lady in the office was a real kick and very helpful. You just pull in, find a spot, and go register..
This was a very interesting park which is far enough off the freeway to be quiet.The sites are well maintained with gravel pads and green grass in between the sites.Back-ins up against a fence have shade,but not the pull-thru's.It is a very casual place as you just write your site number on an envelope with your money and drop it in a slot.Same for ice.The owner is around,but not intrusive.Overnighters get a free bucket of balls to hit in a highly manicured driving range and there are old tractors all around the park. I rated it a bit lower as the showers and bathrooms are clean,but they are a bit quaint and there is the occasional whiff of the dairy 1/2 mile away..We loved the sunset from there.Great spot for an overnight stay.
The only reason I'd rate this down is that it is dangerously close to too much shopping. The other reason is that a number of the sites are a bit short. We wanted to park w/o unhooking but had to anyway as we stuck out on both ends. They were very nice about late arrivals and the staff was friendly.BD. We'll probably stay here on the way back home..
Nice place to stay just off of the highway and easy access.It appears that they are doing some work on the park and it needs it. There are a number of full-timers, but they are all quiet and neat sites.BD. Sites are in some trees and wide enough for slides AND awnings, if needed. There are a couple of good looking places to eat nearby and several large fuel stations.
This is one of the cleanest parks we've stayed in,the sites are all gravel and no grass,easy back ins, but a bit tight.. That's not a problem as you're basically here for one night or using it as a base camp.It is great for that as it's 1/2-3/4 hr into S.F. same to Napa and out to the coast. There is a small deli on site and the bread and sandwiches are awesome. Staff is very friendly and helpful as I had mechanical problems and helped get in touch with techs..BD..We are planning on next spring again and will plan on here.
Really great place to stay when you are in Stockton as it's very central. Right on the river and you can watch the boats go by, big and bigger.. We stayed here two years ago and were also happy then and didn't hesitate to stay here again. Very friendly staff, especially the host who showed us our site and helped us park..
We really had a better stay than last time when we had to stay in the back row in a p/u..We were supposed to have a premium site, but we were too long for them and got the next level site and actually had a better one for less money..The staff is extremely helpful and they tour the cg at all hours, but aren't obnoxious..The food is good and they also had a great concert on the Monday we were there.BD. All in all this KOA is a cut above them all and we will stay here again..I would have rated this a 10, but I am still trying to find a perfect one..
Did not stay there as we had to cancel,but had a bad time with that.. Made res LAST year for the 4th of July week as part of a group with only the phone #.Told the res deposit was $45 which we paid and were not told it was non-refundable..Cancelled in April with message,no reply.. Same again in May,no reply.They called to confirm res in June and I again cancelled and told no refund.. They called again middle of June to confirm and told us that we owed $213 past due for site and they were again told that we had cancelled,so they did again and no res refund..Watch out for this place..
What can you say about this park that isn't good. It is neat and clean,the hosts are great,the scenery is great and the weather was wonderful, even for the first week in April. Some of the sites are a little tight to get into, but I wouldn't want any changes to them as the bushes really are part of the place. The experience is more than be appreciated in less than several days though, so plan on spending that much time there. We were told that there were a million day and overnight users last year,so plan your reservations accordingly. Will be going back ourselves this summer..
Very nice park even though though some sites are kind of close together and they don't seem to take into consideration the type of equipment you have..Restrooms and pool areas seemed to be well maintained and the grounds were pretty neat..Was not at all happy with the attitude of some of the help however as they were more interested in their own business in the office than answering questions.It also appeared as if they should be trimming some of the trees and widening some of the access roads to make it easier to get to your site and then into it.. Even that said it was a pleasant place to camp...
They have finished the upgrades in the full h/u area and it is really first class.. We have camped here before and it's still a great place to go.. There is so much to do in the area and a lot of great places to eat.. For a great eating experience,I would suggest either the ARK or the Shoalwater, especially the latter..
Nice park with pull-throughs in the front area (big rig) and back-ins in the back part..Does need a bit of upgrading and does have some full-timers,but neat..The big trees make it like a state or NP cg. NO road noise from the freeway, near the airport tho and it is pretty easy to get too..It is the best park for traveling around the Olympia area.. All employees were very helpful and the owner loaned me a bucket of hot water to thaw out the faucets so I could fill my onboard tank because the temp never got above 28...BD. Have stayed there several times and will again.
This park is close to the freeway,but no noise. There is a Pacific Pride as you go into the park and you are only 1 mile from several fun restaurants and fuel stops. There are a number of permanents, but are neat and they are in the process of re-graveling and leveling the sites..The management is very helpful and pleasant. Being at the intersection of hwy 12 and 410, it is quite handy as a home base for trips in the local area..BD. There is also the race track at Elma that has some good racing in season..
There are 39 newly upgraded w/e sites in a meadow with a great view.There are 51 non-utility in a treed section. The rates are actually $20 for county res and $22 for non. The tent sites are $14 and $16..This a great place place with nothing to do but scuba dive,fish off the rocks,tide pool at low tide, some hiking and a lot of sitting and looking at the water. No res as yet.
Once again this cg came thru with beautiful weather.. The views are magnificent. We had 8 rigs and they were very helpful with the arrangements. Waterfront sites are $35, the others are $30 and they will be going to a non-refundable $7 res. fee next year. There are res. available for small groups and they encourage you to make them in Jan.
I thought that this was a very clean cg and would probably stay here again .Huge shade trees,nice clean pool and spas,game room,nice smaller meeting room and quiet library.Showers and laundry exceptionally clean. About 1/2 of the sites are seasonal,but are very neat..I agree about the way that the sites are set up as I had a car parked across from the back of my long pull-thru and a tree on the left as I came in and it did make it a little hard.. There are some small pull-thrus and long ones also..
We stayed in the old rv park annex as they are in the process of finishing up a brand new section close to the water. This is slated to open the end of May and will have full h/ups, wi-fi, satellite cable and nice large paved sites with landscaping. There will also be a dry-camp overflow area. It is right next to the Oregon Aquarium and the Rogue Brewery and an easy trip over the bridge to Newport. I gave it the rating I did because the place will be awesome after they finish and then rehab the annex part also.
This CG is on the beachfront from Gold Beach right next to the small local airport. It is about a 100 yd walk to the river and the beach from here and about three blocks to food and the Rogue River mailboats and four to town... The sites are gravel and relatively level and it is aimed at the fisherpersons that come here. We enjoyed our stay and understand that it can be difficult to get reservations for the summer season. The management was EXTREMELY helpful with local info and even came over and helped us with the hook-up.
This is an attractive park located about 200 yards from highway 101, so needless to say there was a bit of noise ALL night long. We were told that we had a 61 foot pull-through, but the nose of the tow vehicle, and the tail of the TT barely fit. My total length is 54'. There is a small tree in some sites that made it difficult when you pulled out. Also had to pay $5 for each of the kids, and we didn't even unhook the TT or leave the campsite. My total cost was $50. And some of us wonder why Wal-Mart is so attractive?
This is a great park close in to Stockton, just off of I-5 and is right on the banks of the San Joaquin River where you can actually see ocean going ships go by. Some of the sites are a bit tight, but are seperated by a hedge and a tree in each site so are nice. Restrooms were always clean and the management is very nice, with a caretaker that brought us cookies. It has a security gate, actually one to get into the marina and a card gate to get into the park.
Even though some of the park was closed for tree removal and rehab ,there were still enough sites to go around. The park is always maintained in excellent condition. Never have I had a problem fitting my rig is a site.
This is the first time of probably many stays here. They were really nice about my checking in early and out late as they weren't really busy. The owners are very pleasant, as was the camp host. The sites are level gravel, the hook-ups were handy, there was plenty of room on the interior roads for any size rig and were long enuff for my TT and TV. It is right on the edge of the river and has fishing, kayaking, and rafting possibilities. BD.
Very nicely kept up state park on the Columbia River. Would have been a much nicer stay if the wind hadn't have been gusting up to 50 mph the nite we were there. There are a number of recreational things to do there and most of them have to do with the river: swimming, boating, wind-surfing, etc... There are several restaurants in Vantage, two miles north on the freeway. This is also part of the Ginko Petrified Forest preserve, which is a wonderful historic site.
This is a great Washington State campground and is located in a popular area on Hood Canal. There is bike riding,hiking,clam and Oyster digging in season and just an all-round sense of relaxation. There are a couple of good restaurants located in walking distance. The camp sites are set in circles and large enuff to afford some privacy,but close enuff together so that if you are in a group you can feel together. There is one LARGE group site and a smaller one, but these fill up early. The campground also has several large platform tents for rent at $35 a nite.. Wonderful family experience,but get your reservations in early.
Once again I have to say that this is still one of the nicest CGs I have stayed in. They are continually upgrading the facilities. Don't look for concrete pads as this is beachfront and the surfaces have to be pervious. The restrooms and showers have been upgraded and along with the two restaurants on site, there is now a kayak rental facility, a B&B, and the home of the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Society, as well as a first class marina. All this and the view, this is a definite 10.
