Good paved park roads although a bit narrow for two way traffic. Our level gravel site (#144) was an ocean view back-in that also had a table and fire ring. It was big enough for a big rig and a toad parked next to it. There were shrubs and trees between the adjacent sites giving some privacy. This is a large park and has just about any kind of site you may want from basic tent site in the trees to ocean view RV sites. Cable TV was clear on most channels (about 30) and internet was Tengo which cost $3 a day. It was good enough for Skype phone calls. There are a few walking trails down to the river estuary. Friendly efficient service from the office at check-in. This is one of my favourite RV parks and would definitely go again.

Paved park roads and site pads on east side. Other sites grass. Our site (#7) was a paved fairly level back-in surrounded by grass and dirt,a few hedges and mature trees for privacy. Some of the paved pads were heaved and bumpy and had gravel crush added to help with the leveling. Utilities all together at the back corner and worked fine. Cable TV had around 30 clear video channels plus many digital audio channels. Internet connection was solid and good enough for Skype. A few grass sites will take bigger rigs, but it is a tight fit for most. It took one fifth wheel 1/2 hour to back into one spot. The paved back-ins will take at most up to a 30 foot rig. Handy to the beach and lagoon. I would come here again if in the area.

Rate shown with Good Sam discount. Our site was a gravel pull-through with patchy grass either side and included a table. No cable TV, but 6 or 7 channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi worked fine most of the time, but slowed down later in the evening. A few trees have been planted, but no shade yet. The park has a 360 view of the surrounding mountains. We would stay here again if in the area.

Rate shown with Good Sam discount. Our site was a not level gravel back-in that included a table. There is some grass and a few trees around the back-in sites. This time the trees had no leaves as the tent caterpillars ate them all. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV fairly basic with about 25 video channels (crystal clear) plus around 40 audio channels. The Wi-Fi was strong and good enough for Skype phone calls, but on occasion slow due to traffic. Laundry clean, but the dryer I was using needed attention as it squeaked intermittently. It now costs $2.75 for a wash and $1.50 for 30 min. of drying. We will be back.

Our site was a gravel back-in that had quite a slope down that was difficult to level with my boards. The sites are quite private with many trees and bushes in between. A table and fire ring are included. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV or local TV off the antenna. Wi-Fi worked fine from our site (#1), but manager said there was no guarantee it would work from all sites. Laundry has three washers and two dryers and it was clean and efficient. As this is the only campground with hookups in Grande Cache I would probably use it again if in the area.

Limited hours when office was open and self registration was in effect at time of visit. When I tried to register in person during evening business hours no one showed up. List of reserved sites on bulletin board and first come first serve for the rest. Our site was a fairly level gravel back-in. Electric was only 15 amp and I had to use a long extension cord and adapter to use it. Sewer connection was a home made affair with a corrugated pipe inside a wooden box that had a hole in the side where my sewer connector got pushed into the pipe. With my sewer support I was able to get a sold fit, but I have never seen such a wonky set up. No cable TV, but a couple of weak analog channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi was available near the office only. I don't think I would bother coming back here again.

I was able to select a site first before registering. Water available from a tap near site 3. First site chosen (#3) was very unlevel so chose another one (#1). The electrical pedestal cover plate was off exposing the connection to the elements. The campground manager was friendly enough, but he could have shown more sense when burning a pile of wood in his fire ring and smoking us out. There was noise from both the Trans Canada highway and the trains nearby. There is no dump station at this campground. Go to the Travel Alberta Info Centre next door. I would not go back to this campground if in the area again.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Good gravel park roads. Most of the pull-through sites have narrow, but long gravel parking pads. There is a concrete patio with table on the grass strip between the sites. No privacy between sites. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but 6 or 7 channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi was good enough for e-mail or browsing, but weak for Skype calls. Laundry was clean and efficient. Washers were $2 and dryers needed about $1.50. I would stay here again if in the area.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Access road to the park is more like a private driveway as it is fairly narrow. Our site was a fairly level (after some maneuvering) gravel pull-through. There were grass strips between the pull-through sites. All utilities worked fine. Good cable TV. Wi-Fi worked for awhile and then quit due to lack of bandwidth. Owners warned me this might happen. They are in the process of getting increased bandwidth to solve this problem. The pet walk area was a good size, fenced, and grass. I would consider staying again if in the area.

Our site was a gravel pull-through right next to the loop road. It was so unlevel that I didn’t have enough boards to get it level. On our loop many of the sites seemed crowded, but our site (L246) had plenty of privacy on the curb side. There was a table and a rock fireplace included. No utilities, but two dump stations on the way out and another on the way in that was more convenient for freshwater fill up. I noticed some sites on J Loop now have electric. These may be the ADA accessible sites mentioned on the website. It was walking distance to the village shops and visitor center. If I could get a more level site I would consider staying again, otherwise I wouldn’t bother.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Our site was a level gravel pull-through (it appears to be a pull-in, but RVs are allowed to pull out over a grass patch while exiting the park). A table is supplied, but no fire rings. All sites share a gravel parking area so not much privacy. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but plenty of off the air channels. Wi-Fi worked fine, but was slow at times. Office had a book exchange which looked extensive. Situated in a field next to a golf course I heard the sound of meadow larks more than any noise from the highway. I would come here again if in the area.

Access off highway 34 is a bridge span across the Big Thompson river so be prepared for a tight turn if coming from the west. Rate shown is with Passport America discount for a site along the river. We had an escort to the site. Our site was a level gravel back-in. A table, fire ring, and a big shade tree were on the site as well. Some cable TV channels were a bit fuzzy. Wi-Fi provided by Tengo. It costs $1 for the first night. It was very slow at first, but got better later in the evening. The park roads were dusty upon our arrival, but staff watered them down well later on in the day. I would return to this campground if in the area.

Fairly good gravel park road. Our site was an almost level gravel back-in. A table and fire ring were supplied as well. Some of the sites like ours are big and private. The view from our site (#50)was panoramic. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV and I didn't bother finding out if any off the air channels were available. The Wi-Fi signal was good from our site even though the owner didn't think we would be able to connect. I would come back here again if in the area.

Access road to campground fairly rough. Our site was a fairly level gravel pull-through. There was a table and fire ring provided as well. There was a serious problem with the electrical supply. Even with only 6 RVs in the campground the voltage was 102 volts. We elected to switch the fridge to propane and have our fantastic fans on to spare our A/C from burning out. Unfortunately it was hot and so was our motorhome. There is a rec room with old furniture (which smelled pretty bad). Other than the view of the dunes this place has absolutely no other redeeming value.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Our site (#124) was a fairly level gravel back-in with a table and a big shade tree. We had a great view of the fishing pond and the river. All utilities worked fine. Good cable TV and strong Wi-Fi signal. Great landscaping throughout the park. Little touches here and there that make this an exceptional park. I would definitely come back here again.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Our site was a gravel back-in and not very level. A table was on the site as well. All utilities worked fine. Good cable TV. Wi-Fi would not connect no matter what I tried. Annoying traffic noise from the street due to breaks in pavement making a horse shoe clopping sound. I was disappointed in our site as it was not shaded as promised. Shaded pull-through sites in the center of the park would be rated higher. I doubt if I would ever be back as most of the good sites have big rigs on them and ours is not.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Paved park roads and gravel sites. Our site was a level, good gravel back-in with a picnic table and a large shade tree. Most of the shade trees are located in the back-in sites. Most of the pull-throughs looked open. All utilities worked fine. Excellent cable TV. Wi-Fi good enough for e-mail and browsing (occasionally slow) as internet via satellite from Tengo. We were given a free 7 day subscription for an overnight stay. I would stay here again if a shady site was available as it does get hot in this part of Colorado.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Our site was a good gravel almost level pull-through and included a table. Our utilities were shared with another site. There was grass on the table side. Many mature shade trees. We didn't have a fire ring, but the row of tent sites did. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi signal was strong. For a view of the lake go next door to the state park.

This is an older park that looks like it was a KOA at one time. Most sites are occupied by permanent residents. Many of the RVs are old, but most sites appeared clean. There may be 5 or 6 sites for RVs and another 10 for tents set aside for overnighters. The RV sites are gravel pull-throughs and the tent sites are on grass on one side of a small pond. Our site had a table and grass between adjacent sites. All utilities worked fine. Good cable TV. The Wi-Fi was useless as it wouldn't stay connected for very long. There are fish in the pond and no licence required. Friendly staff in the office (ice cream and candy sold there as well). Some noise from the interstate, but it didn't bother us. This is no resort, but for an overnight stay I can see coming back if in the area.

Park roads fair to good gravel. Our site was a level gravel back-in with a nice concrete picnic table fire ring and shade tree. Perimeter sites are mainly pull-through and interior sites are back-in. There are six Columbia River view sites, but reserve well in advance for these spots. Office manager was friendly and efficient. All utilities worked fine. Water pressure 86 PSI, so use a regulator. No cable TV, but plenty of network stations off the antenna. Wi-Fi very strong and enough bandwidth for Skype (although there were only 10-15 occupied sites at the time). Nice view of the river and bridge. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here if in the area again.

Access to the park is via a 3 km fair paved road off highway 97. Good paved park roads. Water is available from a tap situated across from the campground hosts. Restrooms and showers are nearby. A few electric sites located in the parking lot. Our site was a fairly level gravel back-in. Good view of Kalamalka Lake as campground sites are on several terraced loops. No Wi-Fi available. I didn’t check TV, although there should be a couple of channels available off the air. I couldn’t get any Telus cell phone coverage. Some noise is noticeable from the highway above the park. Even so I would still return to this campground.

Fairly narrow access road leads to well landscaped pull-through terraced sites. Park road compact gravel, but sites were more compact dirt and gravel. Our site (#2) was very large and could accommodate a large rig and toad. There was lots of space between sites. All utilities worked fine. Good cable TV. Wi-Fi was good enough for e-mail and browsing. Friendly owners who gave a good background on the park. I would definitely come back here if in the area.

Fair paved park roads. Some sites had crumbling pavement, although some others had been repaved. Our site was a good paved back-in, but not very level. All utilities worked, but power pedestal was low to the ground. Good cable TV. Wi-Fi had a strong signal, but very little bandwidth for anything other than e-mail and browsing. Friendly office staff. I would return to this park as it is in a good location for visiting our relatives and has good value.

Good paved access road. Site was a fairly level paved pull-through. All utilities worked, but sewer connection was a steel elbow that made for an awkward fitting. Our site (#43) had a good view of the Columbia River. Self registration in effect and registration slips located near the restrooms. There were recycle drops for cans and plastic bottles near the restrooms, but regular garbage had to go in a couple of dumpsters on the way out. A few walking paths connect some of the campground loops and the day use area. The campsites here are well off the highway which makes it very quiet and enjoyable. One of our favourite campgrounds in Washington state.

Rate shown was winter rate which was cheaper than the Good Sam discount. Site was a fairly level gravel back-in. Our site had a shade tree and table. There was a grass strip between each site. Good cable TV. I didn't try the Wi-Fi as I didn't know the password for it (wasn't offered at time of registration). New management that was getting the RV park and golf course in shape. They were going to have several golf tournaments this spring and summer. Propane available for bottle fill ups. Garbage container at the exit. I would come here again if in the area.

Rate shown Good Sam discount for an ocean view site in Winter season. Site was a fairly level gravel back-in. All utilities worked fine. Good cable TV and excellent Wi-Fi. Great views of the ocean from the terraced campsites. Short trail to the beach. Big rig friendly, but not that many sites available for them (4). Next time we are in the area we will stay here longer.

Rate shown available if you call ahead to make a reservation and ask for the Good Sam special rate. Site was a level gravel back-in. The manager escorted us to our site. I had to change sites as first one showed an open ground on the power. Excellent cable TV and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi good enough for Skype calls. No privacy between sites. Road noise from highway was very noticeable. Good value, but I would not spend more than one night again if in the area.

Rate shown includes cable TV charge. Site was an unlevel gravel back-in. It had a concret patio and table. Nice landscaping throughout the park. Most sites occupied by permanent residents it seems as I never did run into any other transients. Good cable TV. The Wi-Fi only available up at the restaurant. It is okay to sit at a table and use the Wi-Fi without ordering a meal. I was somewhat disappointed that the beach trail from the park was impassable due to high water. Our park info map did say boots were required to use it, but you would need hip waders.

Rate shown Good Sam discount. Site was a level gravel back-in. There were shrubs and trees surounding the site making it very private. Nice landscaping throughout the park. Excellent cable TV and Wi-Fi. For Wi-Fi staff give you a coupon code for the Tengo internet supplier. This Tengo connection was strong enough for Skype phone calls. Small, but good laundry (three washers and four dryers). This is by far the best park in the Fort Bragg area.

We got the only site available for overnight so best to call ahead. Most sites occupied by seasonal or permanent residents. Site was a well gravelled almost level back-in. Electric, water, and cable TV were shared from another site, but no problem connecting. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV selection fairly basic, but did have most major cable channels. Wi-Fi worked most of the time, but got bumped due to limited bandwidth. The laundry is old, but clean and efficient. Most sites have a table, but there are nicer tables and BBQs on some grass strips set aside down the middle of the park.

Rate is for winter season. Higher rates in summer. Site was a fairly level paved back-in situated in the Chumash loop. A table and fire grill at most of the sites in the loop. Good privacy between most of the sites. It was fairly quiet in the loop as most of the campers were in the adjacent Rumaldo loop. All utilities worked, but the sewer outlet was about six inches above ground which made drainage a challenge. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. There were plenty of off the air TV channels and our site (C13) was satellite friendly. The Bridge trail was nearby and several other trails were beyond the botanical gardens.

Site was a fairly level paved pull-through. A picnic table and fire grill were included. Most sites had shrubs and trees for privacy. Ground squirrels seem to be a problem as they burrow just about anywhere they feel like. After feeling a bit claustrophobic at another nearby campground we stayed at earlier, it felt good to have some space. Good trails to the butterfly grove, beach, and dunes. Good dump station on the way out. Other than flush toilets and pay showers there are no other amenities available. Still it was worth a couple days stay.

Rate shown weekly rate for a large pull-through site divided by 7. Our site was a long gravel pull-through which sloped a lot on half of the pad. I had to use 6 inches of leveling boards on one front wheel alone. There is no privacy between the sites. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but I was able to use my satellite dish. The Wi-Fi that is available is through a third party and has nothing to do with the park. When I asked staff about reliability of this Wi-Fi the answer was not very complementary. One has to ask why this park would keep this Wi-Fi connection then. I did not use it so can't attest to its reliability. There is a DVD lending library as well as a book exchange in the office. To use the restrooms, showers, and laundry a $10 deposit for a key is required. The laundry is a long walk into the adjacent mobile home park. However, this park has excellent access to the beach, dunes, restaurants, and the butterfly grove. For those reasons I would stay here again.

Rate shown Good Sam discount. Site was a paved pull-through. I drove towards the back of the pad to get level which stretched out my water and sewer lines. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but around 3 or 4 off the air channels. No Wi-Fi, but there is an internet shelter with some telephone line connections for dial up. The surrounding park has trails, farm and mining machinery exhibits, and a couple of museums. It was very quiet during our visit and we would definitely stay here again.

Rate shown for 1 week stay divided by 7. Access road poor to fair pavement. Narrow park roads. I had to back up the exit route in order to get to my assigned site. Park sites are short and most will not accommodate RV lengths longer than 26-34 feet. The manager advised that only 7 of the sites are for transients. Our site was an unlevel paved back-in. More of a parking lot with lines there is no privacy between sites. All utilities worked. The cable TV selection was extensive and worked well. The Wi-Fi was intermittent and would cut out at times. Our site was close to the road and it got quite noisy at times. The laundry had 2 washers and 2 dryers. The wife said she was happy with their efficiency. Friendly accommodating manager. Still, we probably won't return due to the noise levels.

Rate shown for AAA discount. First site assigned (24) was very unlevel and needed 25 feet of sewer line for hookup. I managed to get a better site (25) that was more level and no problems with hookup of the sewer line. No cable TV, but plenty of channels over the air. Wi-Fi weak, but usuable most of the time. The surrounding wilderness park has plenty of trails to explore and the native garden near the campground was interesting as well.

Site was a dirt and grass almost level drive-through with picnic table, BBQ grill, and fire ring. Not all sites had tables or grills. One row had some cement pads for patios. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi. Laundry had 4 washers and 4 dryers. It cost $1.25 for the washer and $1.00 for the dryer. This park has a mini store and pools, but they were closed for the season. It also has a boat gas pump. Resort may be in its name, but it is not. We probably will not stay here again.

No cable TV or off the air. Our site looked satellite friendly. Wi-Fi would not connect. This park has propane which made it handy to fill up the tank prior to taking a campsite. Still, after hearing an unexplained loud explosion that night and lack of Wi-Fi we probably will not be staying here again.

Rate was for an ocean view pull-though site. There was a sign notifying customers that 50 amp power was not available at the time. Paved park roads with a few potholes. Site was gravel (not level side to side) with a concrete patio and table. Each site divided by a short wooden fence and a hedge bush. Hookups all worked, but the hedge bush got in the way when hooking up the sewer. There were new sewer hookups placed half way towards the front. Excellent cable TV. The Wi-Fi had a strong signal and was usable for Skype calls most of the time. The laundry had plenty of machines, but some were either broken or not enough heat from the dryers. The laundry was attached to a cafe and both could have used some paint and cleanup. The best part of this park is the view of the beach and ocean. This place is so popular that a never ending procession of vehicles drive by and park across the road from the ocean view sites.

The nightly rate based on a small interior site paid for a week stay. Situated on the west side of Salmon Harbor Marina this park has good paved roads and campsites. Some settling of the pavement has caused some puddling in places. Our site was a paved and almost level pull-through. Each site has a table on a concrete pad as well as a fire grill. Only a few trees landscape the park with short hedges between the sites. Thus not much privacy, but good for satellite TV access. The park cable TV was good, but the Wi-Fi had a few issues. It worked most of the time, but would slow down or cut out at times. The laundry and restrooms were very clean. I noticed that the change machine has been reinstalled. Easy walk to several restaurants and stores in town. This is another park that we will return to again and again.

The county road leading to the park has definitely deteriorated since our last visit here two years ago. The state park roads appear to have been repaved for some of the loops. Our site in D loop was a paved back-in and needed some boards for levelling. All utilities worked fine. No cable or local TV, but satellite TV from our site (D9) worked fine. Some maintenance around the park has not been done due to government cuts. Due to the fantastic beach and superlative natural areas this is one park we will always want to return.

Good access off 2nd St. Campground streets paved. Most sites occupied by permanent residents. Sites 43 to 46 set aside for transients. There was a friendly and helpful manager in the office. Our site was a paved almost level pull-through (long enough for most big rigs and their toads) with a picnic table on the grass. Utilities all worked fine. Water was from a tap inside a below ground casing which made it bit more challenging to hook up my filter and pressure regulator (I keep a short one foot hose connector for that purpose). Good cable TV selection, both analog and digital. Wi-Fi was good enough for e-mail and browsing, but not for Skype calls. On the way out I had to drive over a gravel bank off 2nd St. to exit as the campground street was blocked by a resident’s truck. Rate was Passport America. Good value for the facilities and amenities offered. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Rate was for a back-in full hookup site. Pull-throughs available for a few dollars more. No discounts available at this campground. The site was a grass back-in that was fairly level, but had many tree roots exposed over the first half. No privacy between sites. Hookups worked fine. Excellent cable TV. Wi-Fi had good coverage, but when there was traffic I got bumped many times. Some train noise, but not too bothersome.

Upon arrival we had to pick a site as caretaker was not home (even though a sign said to see her first). Most of the sites are grass back-ins with little privacy in between. The campground has a view of the lake, but is at least 100 ft away from the shoreline. Power and water worked fine. No sewer, but sani dump available nearby for an extra $5 and caretaker has to unlock it. No cable TV, but satellite TV worked fine from our site (#21). Wi-Fi signal was good. Within walking distance of the village and the SS Moyie.

As this campground has only 4 full hookups (not the 7 the city claims on their website) I should have made a reservation for one. Since I did not, I had to settle for an electric only site. The access road into the campground still has as many potholes as it did when we were here last May. The campground is now operated by a youth activities centre who are trying to rectify just how many campsites there actually are (no more than 30 and not the 43 the city claims). Although the City of Nelson owns the land it has not operated the campground for over 25 years. The utilities need a serious updating. The electrical site we had required a long extension cord (provided by the campground) for connection from a breaker box to the site. We were able to get a full hookup site the second night (rate $30), but the site was extremely unlevel and our sewer drain on the RV was downhill as well. Power is only 15 amp, although the operator said it was being upgraded to 30 amp by next year. The shower lacked a sitting stool and a mat. Also a button had to be pushed every 30 seconds for hot water. Lack of mirrors and counter space at the restroom sinks as well. The only reason for coming here is the excellent location so close to the downtown.

The park road is narrow in one place so would not recommend for larger trailers or motorhomes. Our site (the letter I) was a narrow and not level gravel back-in. There was not enough room for slide-outs. Power and water were shared with adjacent site. I had to use extra cord and hose to reach them. Power was 30 amp, but some other sites were only 15 amp. All utilities at our site worked fine. Sites J, K, L, and R were 15 amp sharing power from a twin 15 amp breaker box. Two of these sites had hoses and extension cords for connections. Most sites also had tables and fire barrels. Restrooms and showers were on the other side of the park from us. There was only one of each for each gender. Showers were $.25 for 2 minutes. The X sites are the newest, but it can be difficult backing into some of them as there are fences between sites. No TV unless you have satellite. Internet access is available in the office for $1 which gives you 10 minutes access on their computer. There were some swings and other playground equipment for the kids. I would check out the other RV park in town if ever in this area again.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Access road off the highway has a bit of a bump where the pavement meets the gravel. Site was a fairly level gravel back-in. Power was 30 amp; water and power worked fine. The sewer connection was a real pain as the intake pipe was almost a foot off the ground. It took a bit of work to get my sewer hose flowing in the right direction. A new addition is an insulated box with a heat lamp to keep the water line warm in the winter as this park is now open all year round. Excellent cable TV and Wi-Fi signal strong, although slow at times due to traffic. Noise from highway is noticeable at times, but not annoying. Garbage dumpsters are located some distance from the RV sites. We would return here as this park has consistently been our favourite one in the Prince George area for many years.

Having been here before we knew the only sites available would be the electric and water ones, the full hookup sites being reserved months ago. The campground is divided into three sections. In the center are the full hookups, north side are long pull-throughs for bigger rigs, and south side where smaller units have back-ins. Our site was a not very level paved back-in with 30 amp power. Something new from the last time we were here is the addition of extension cords at some of the sites. Unfortunately our site extension cord had a problem and had to be removed. We had our own extension cord, so we were still able to hook up okay. No cable TV, but 3 channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi had a strong signal. Good enough for Skype phone calls. The campground is situated in a large park that has walking paths to the tourist information centre and down along the creek. We would stay here again as it is conveniently located close to the town and has a playground where our grand kids can play while visiting us.

Rate shown includes tax and is for a full hookup 20 amp site. Our site was a good, fairly level gravel back-in. Not much space between the full hookup sites, but lucky for us this section was not full. Most of the sites with a river view had more space, but had power only. The mosquitoes and other biting insects were not that bad in the open areas. No TV unless you had a satellite dish. Park had Wi-Fi, but it was usable only near the store. The store offers ice cream treats and cheap phone cards. I would come here again as it is more peaceful than some of the campgrounds in the larger communities on the Alaska highway.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount and tax. Our site (#21)was a level gravel back-in with a full hookup (30 amp). All utilities worked fine. It had a great view of the small lake behind the park. At first we were given an EW site as staff told us all sites were full hookups. The pull-through sites are not. Some of the back-in sites (19-21) have a cable TV connection. There were 8 or 9 channels and most were spotty. Wi-Fi signal was fair to good and good enough for e-mail or browsing. There is a small restaurant and store on site.

Rate shown includes tax. Site was a level gravel pull-through. Entire park is a gravel parking lot behind the store. All utilities worked fine. Restrooms have 2 washers and 2 dryers for each gender. There is also another laundry attached to the store. Cable TV has only 8 channels and they are mostly spotty. Wi-Fi did not work both times I tried it as there were problems with the router and store staff didn’t have a clue how to reboot the system. Sign Post Forest is just across the street. Good enough for overnight after a long day on the road.

This small RV park is located on a marina and has one of the best views anywhere as it has a panoramic view of Atlin Lake and the surrounding mountains. It is within walking distance of the historic gold rush town of Atlin. Site was a level gravel pull up or back-in with power (15 amp) and water only. There are a few sites with 30 amp power. No dump station on site. The only place with an RV dump is on the Discovery road 3 miles from town. No showers and a portable toilet only. Showers are available at Caribou Laundry. Only TV was local CBC channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi available for $5 a day which I didn’t use so can’t comment on its status. Overall rating for park a 6 due to lack of facilities, but the view was a definite 10.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount and tax. Site was a fairly level gravel pull-through. Our site number was 73 and due to shared utility posts I was unable to hook up due to the long distance away. I had to turn around and have the connections cross under our rig. Most sites have some trees or rocks between them. Some big rigs may have some difficulty maneuvering some turns. This is a busy campground so it would be best to reserve in July and August. Good cable TV (on one day some channels went blank due to cable company). Wi-Fi was strong due to repeater next to our site. Closest RV park to Whitehorse. Out front near the dog walk are some old WWII trucks and jeeps that are getting closed in by the trees. I would come here again as it is the best of 3 parks we have used in Whitehorse.

Rate shown Good Sam discount and includes tax. Site was a fairly level gravel pull-through with 30 amp power and water. There are no full hookups as advertised. All utilities worked fine. Nice view of the bay. Only TV was a poor signal from a CBC local channel. Wi-Fi was available only in the vicinity of the motel. The signal worked intermittently. The restaurant makes a good Teslin burger. Clean laundry with 6 washers and 4 dryers. Wash is $2.50 and dry is $.25 for 8 min. Received a 4 cents a litre discount card (3% off). Propane fill next to dump station (enough said).

Rate shown includes all taxes. Site was a fairly level pull-through. All utilities worked. Fairly remote place with no TV or radio (unless you have satellite) and Wi-FI was available for an extra $20. Although the campground itself was fairly plain and open (some shade in the dry sites) the surrounding country had some fantastic views. We were lucky enough to safely view from our motorhome a bear sow and its cub grazing on the edge of the campground. Plenty of mosquitoes and black flies here, but they aren’t a problem if you cover up or use bug dope.

Site was a 15 amp long gravel/grass back-in. It is possible to pull through on sites in the middle, but only through an another empty site. The campground is located on a grass field. The only river sites are small and appear to be for tents. Most of the original gravel pads have grass growing in. The sewer outlet was a below ground connection which made it awkward to get a tight fit with our elbow connector. Our electric post was controlled by a breaker on another site post and the attendant had to turn it on for us. I noticed there were only a couple more sewer sites so if you want full hookups better reserve. Most electric sites were 15 amp, but there was a row of 30 amp sites. Each site had a table and fire grill. The tables needed to be refinished and painted. The shower house is now finished. There was one flush toilet and two showers on the men’s side and they were not clean. As well there were some pit toilets around the campground perimeter. Previous mention was made of getting to the campground via Main Street. If driving into Smithers from the east one can turn off at King Street to access Main Street as well. No cable TV, but received four different channels off the air. Wi-Fi worked well when it was on. Attendant advised he had to continually reboot the system. There are some good trails in the park that access another park up the hill and residential areas of town. Cookhouse available for campers if not already reserved.

Upon arriving here we found out that our reservation for a full hookup was not going to be honoured as the park was full. We were offered a temporary site which was water and electric. The water tap was broken and after informing the owner he managed to get us a full hookup site after all. Our site was a 30 amp back-in that was in need of more gravel for the parking pad. It was sloped down towards the back and was not level. There was a concrete patio with a table and fire ring as well. Most of the tables appeared either warped or in need of a paint job. Most of the back-in sites around the campground perimeter were very short (30 feet) and the space between these sites were grass. No privacy at all and barely enough room for awnings. No cable TV at our site, but it was available at some of the pull-through sites near the office. I could only get one TV channel off the antenna due to interference from a power line that was overhead our site. Wi-Fi was too weak at our site to connect to the internet so I had to hike up to near the office where I could sit down at a table and connect up. There is a hiking trail next to the park that extends 15 miles north and connects up with other trails in the city. We would not return here as this park is not as good as another park we usually stay at in the area.

Campground is less than a mile off highway 97. Campground roads mainly gravel, but more grass around the campground sites. Our site was a grass/gravel pull-through and not level. The pull-through sites had 30 amp power, but down near the lake the sites were all 15 amp back-ins. Most sites could use some more gravel as the grass has grown in. Even so, after a heavy rain there was no pooling as the sites are sloped. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV and I didn't find any Wi-Fi. The campground looked clean, but it had some rotting fences. There was a good tent area amongst the fir trees and some cabins near the office. There is a playground. We wouldn’t return here as it had nothing to offer us other than a walk around the campground.

Situated on Kalamalka Lake this campground is located about 2 miles off highway 97. Access road is old and crumbling pavement at first – watch for potholes. Park roads are good pavement. Sites are all gravel back-ins located on three road loops. There are 3 electrical “sites”, but they are located in the southwest corner of the parking lot. Our site was fairly level. Like the rest of the regular sites on the loops there are no utilities, cable TV, or Wi-Fi. It had a typical BC Parks cedar table along with a fire ring. There is no shade as the trees are still fairly young. The view of the lake was spectacular as most of the sites are on terraces. Wildflowers on the terraces and around the sites make this an attractive park. Water is available from a tap across from the campground host. There is a restroom/shower house near site 20, but I did not inspect it. A bird nest set up nearby had an osprey family. This is a good park for just getting out in your chair to relax or take a hike on one of the trails. There is also a playground for the kids and a boat ramp (have to cross train tracks) for those who want to fish or ski. Even with train tracks nearby I never heard any go by. We would return to this park. Out of 72 sites there are 50 reservable and 22 first come first served. This park fills up very quickly in the summer. The 3 electric “sites” aren’t on the reservation system yet.

Rate shown is for 30 amp full hookup in the F section. The wife wanted a more private site, and we had the entire F section to ourselves. Rates are higher for lakefront sites. Site was a gravel back-in. It was not level. Utilities worked okay. Office staff need a lesson in communications. Only section that has cable TV is in C section, so I asked what channels were available off the antenna. They gave me a cable TV lineup but nothing about Wi-Fi or even an information sheet on the campground. The Wi-Fi is Tengo, and the first hour is free and $5 for the day. Signal was strong, but slow at times on Skype phone calls. I found 2 TV channels off the antenna. Campground is within walking distance from the Nk'mip Winery and Heritage Centre.

Rate shown is for a full hookup site. Tent site is $20 and an electric one is $25. Our site was a back-in that was mostly pavement with some gravel. There are some electric sites that are more private with grass and trees. Access road was in poor shape due to breaks and pot holes. Even though campground website says there are 4 sites for 40 footers I would not recommend it due to the road. Electric is only 15 amp. Both electric and water connections were on the retaining wall behind our rig. This made it awkward to connect as it was a three foot drop below the wall to the ground. Sewer was beside our rig and slightly uphill so I had to use sewer support. No one was in the office when I arrived, but there is a campground host. A city employee showed up after 6pm to register us. The Wi-Fi signal was fairly strong and I was able to use it for Skype phone calls. No cable TV, but there are 2 channels off the antenna. Inside the facilties building are some dining tables, microwave, toaster, and laundry. The washrooms have a code that you get when registered. The campground is a 5 minute walk from downtown Nelson. There is a steep trail that takes you up to Gyro Park where you can get a good view of the city and surrounding mountains. I would come back and stay here due to its proximity to the downtown.

Rate shown Good Sam discount. Site was an unlevel paved pull-through. Entire campground is paved with some trees. My site had a problem with the sewer outlet as it was higher than the drain on my rig. Office gave me the choice of choosing another site or using another sewer outlet at an unoccupied site in the morning. Excellent cable TV with an extensive selection. When I asked the office about Wi-Fi, I was given a username and password. When I logged in it showed it to be a pay for use, but I wasn't charged anything. However there was a time limit of 12 hours and once I logged out my free session was finished. In any case the Wi-Fi worked fine.

New clubhouse looks great as it has a kitchen, big screen TVs, and an outside patio. Clean and modern laundries, although I noticed the money changer has been removed. I get the same site each time to view the sunsets. This place is hard to beat.

There are many trails leading to the beaches, buttes, and forest. A fine example of what a state park should be.

Call first to make a reservation before arriving. Access through fairgrounds gate 6. Site paved back-in and very unlevel. The campground is no more than a paved parking lot with a few trees. Utilities are shared between two sites. With only one power pedestal one RV gets 50 amp and the other 30 amp. One of the water taps leaked. Sewer drains recessed which worked well. No cable TV, but plenty of channels from antenna. Wi-Fi weak and useless half of the time. Adjacent airport meant a certain amount of noise beginning at 5:30 AM. One redeeming feature was its proximity to Monterey downtown; just a quick bus ride.

This national forest campground is set on a bluff above the coastline and has a fantastic view of this section of the Big Sur. Even though others has said this place is big rig friendly I would use caution. Most sites won't accommodate a big rig. My site was a gravel back-in and not level. A table and firepit at each site. Sites 15,17,19 and 21 have great ocean views. There are no utilities at the sites. No TV, Wi-Fi, or phone service available. Two buildings have restrooms and pay showers. There are water taps, but no potable water. Several trails: one to the beach and three climb through the hills on the other side of the highway. Normally I wouldn't rate this campground so high due to lack of utilities and services, but the location and views represent what is best of the Big Sur, and should not be missed.

Rate shown Passport America discount. Regular rate $25. Narrow park roads and short sites make this place limited to motorhomes less than 30 ft and even less if hauling a trailer. It took my neighbor a half hour to maneuver his fifth wheel into place. This park started back in 1941, so maybe that's the reason for the small sites. Most of the sites occupied by long term residents. Only a few sites have 50 amp. My site was a level gravel back-in with a concrete patio. Water and electric worked fine. I was unable to get a tight connection on the sewer drain, but no problem with smell. The cable TV is useless. I got three distorted channels off it. There were plenty of TV channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi had a strong signal most of the time, but cut out occasionally (usually at night). There is a clubhouse with a library. Office hours are limited. It took me three days to register.

Access and park roads paved. This is a park model community with 31 RV spaces for transients. There are some spaces available between the trailers, but these are for long term. Short term sites are in the southeast corner of the resort. Most facilities are in the center which means a good walk to them. My site was gravel and slightly unlevel. Utilities worked fine. Cable TV had a extensive selection, but some of the digital channels were too weak. Wi-Fi had a strong signal due to repeater tower nearby. There are dog walking areas nearby. As a short term resident I had to wear an ID tag if I was using any of the faculties. I don't have a toad, so I was relying on there being transit services. You can forget about that here. Phoenix doesn't have very good bus service. I probably would not stay here again as this resort is more suitable for long term residents.

Our site was gravel and level. Only 1 full hookup site with stream view; the rest were tent sites. The swimming pool was closed for the season. Cable TV had good channel selection and clear picture. Okay for an overnight stay, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer.

Park roads were paved. Most sites had gravel pads. Our site (#61) was a back-in and not level. The beach sites had a great ocean view, but were electric and water only. Electric pedestals (15 amp and 30 amp) were shared between two sites and a power cord extension may be needed to hook up. No cable TV at our site, but 3 channels off the antenna. The day use area next to the campground had a playground, pavilion, beach, dock, and an excellent walking trail.

Watch out for the chickens on the park road. Roads and sites are gravel. Our site was level and surrounded by mature trees and an attractive landscape. Water connection a hassle due to anti-siphon valves on taps. My pressure reducer has a filter screen which gets pushed in by these devices. Office open after 3pm, but had to make several trips (no one in office) before I could register. Cable TV has extensive selection and most channels were clear. Wi-Fi (costs extra)signal was strong. Adjacent to Seal Bay Regional Park which has walking trails. Nice walk around the RV park pond. The owners are currently building a clubhouse. It should be a nice addition to an attractive park.

Park roads are paved and most sites are gravel with a brick patio and table. Our site (#7) did not have a brick patio and it was not level. Privacy shrubs separated the sites. Mature evergreens and rock wall borders for the terraced sites. Friendly and informative staff in the office helped us get around Victoria. Transit bus stop is an 8 minute walk away. Cable TV channels extensive and most were clear. Wi-Fi signal strong. Fairly quiet as no trains use the track (that runs through the park) anymore.

Access road is a fairly steep gravel road. Long or big rigs might have some concerns. RV sites with full hookup are in sunny locations while the electric & water only sites are in the forest shade. Many sites on a loop for tents or small RVs that do no need hookups. Attractive landscape with split cedar fence surrounding many sites. Our site (#45) was a level gravel space at least twice the size of most typical private ones. It contained a table and fire ring. No cable TV, but plenty of digital channels from antenna. Wi-Fi signal was strong. Friendly owners who had the time to chat with us about their park. I would definitely return here again as it is the best campground on Salt Spring Island.

Older park with fair gravel roads and some fairly poor gravel and grass sites. It was difficult to see the boundaries of our site. The utilities were in poor shape. Rusted electrical posts (only 15 amp in the back-in sites). The office had a store with empty shelves. The pool outside was green and there were plastic bags and weeds floating in the water. Half of the park occupied by long term residents. I would not recommend this park to anyone. Only reason I used it was to be close to the ferry terminal.

The park roads were gravel with some pot holes. Our site had a level concrete pad and 30 amp electric. Other sites were grass, concrete, or gravel. Most of the sites occupied by long term residents. This is an old park that has seen better days, but it was quiet and the staff were friendly. Our rate was reduced due to a reservation mix up and we were given a site that was used by a long term resident who was away at the time. Regular rate is around $28-30. I would return due to location and price, but only for short term stays.

The park roads and our site were paved. Most of the sites occupied by long term residents. Our site was not level due to sharp slope at front. Many of the back-in sites are short and can't accommodate rigs longer than 30 feet. There was a table at our site, but no more room for anything else. The water connection at our site was about 18 inches below the surface for frost protection. I had to lift a concrete lid off to connect up my hose. There are privacy shrubs between sites. The cable TV had good selection and strong signal. I did not use the free Wi-Fi connection. A laundry is available. I found the staff friendly and willing to help. For a big rig unit I would call first for availability as there didn't appear to be many sites. For our size rig, I would return to this park if in the area.

Rate for 30 amp site with Good Sam discount. Large area to park when registering in office. Our site was a gravel pull through and not level. Steady rain caused some standing water in some sites. Our neighbor's table was up against our utilities post which seemed kind of strange. All the pull throughs were full hookup with the perimeter back-ins having power and water. Cable TV had about a dozen channels. Wi-Fi available through subscription; which I was unable to get a connection.

Site an unlevel paved back-in. Power and water only as all the full hookups reserved months in advance by seasonals. Our section had short sites compared to the pull through section, but it was quieter. Also tow vehicles had to park on the driveway loop which made maneuvering into some sites a challenge. The campground is next to a reservoir and a trail leads to a large park and the visitor center. We managed to get 3 TV channels off our antenna. Wi-Fi was strong. Campground provides a code for access.

Campground at north end of town beside highway 43. Our site was a level gravel back-in with 30 amp electric. There is a water fill and sewer dump near the entrance. Only a few sites will take big rigs. The full hookup sites are on the inside of the park loop. Perimeter sites are power only. There are some power only sites on a grass area closer to the highway. These open sites will take any size rig. A short walk to groceries, restaurant, and pharmacy. TV reception off our antenna was fairly poor. Campground host will come around to site for registration.

Some sites closest to the office have some privacy. No cable TV and nothing viewable from our antenna. Wi-Fi signal strong, but kept getting bumped for some unknown reason. There is a small laundry with 1 washer and 2 dryers.

This campground is situated at the south end of town near the papal site grounds. Our site was an almost level gravel pull through with 30 amp electric. There is a water fill near the exit, but it was locked so I was able to get water from the visitor center. The dump station is also located near the exit. There are modern washrooms and showers, but ask attendant if they are open. A water shortage kept them locked while we were there. There are some pit toilets available in any case. Some playground equipment near the washrooms. The horse flies and mosquitoes were the worst at this park of any we stayed at in the northwest territories. Bring lots of bug spray!

Site was a level gravel back-in with 30 amp electric. It offered privacy as it was at the end of a string of campsites and surrounded by plenty of trees. A table and fire grate were at each site. Water fill and dump station were at the exit of the campground behind the office. One of the restroom/shower buildings had handicap access. Playground equipment and a beach at Long Lake close by. For hikers there is a 4 KM trail.

Situated 1 mile north of the junction for highway 3 and road to Fort Providence. Our site was a spacious and level gravel pull through with 30 amp electric and big enough for 2 RVs. Actually 2 RVs are allowed in these sites. Water fill is from a locked (attendant has to be around to unlock it) gravity fed tank that takes 20 minutes at least to fill our 30 gallon tank. We had a great view of the Mackenzie River. Each site has a table and fire grate. Playground in day use area next to campground. As in most territorial parks lots of horse flies which was driving the campground operator to exasperation.

The mosquitoes are worse in the morning and evening.

This park is situated 2 miles south of High Level on the east side of the highway. If you believe this campground's advertising it is the most northern campground in Alberta to offer full hookups. Try getting one. When we arrived all the full hookups (30 amp) were already occupied by seasonals. Only 15 amp electric hookups were available. We had to fill up our water tank by driving completely around the park and then back to our site. No dump station except for the full hookup sites which of course were occupied. The manager said there was a free dump station in High Level just north of the Shell gas station. Our site was a gravel back-in and not level. Most of the sites will only accommodate smaller units 30 feet and smaller. When hooking up to the electric I had to use an extra cord. There is a small laundry in the "club house" (it also has the bathrooms and showers). When I peaked inside the place it smelled musty. Unfortunately there is not much to choose for camping in this part of the province. There is a provincial recreation area north of High Level with only basic campsites.

This is a new campground (situated at the junction of Hwy 2 and 688) and some of the roads and landscaping are not finished. The access road I used was terrible as it was dirt and had potholes in it. Manager said a new access road should be finished by next month. The electric (30 amp) connection is awkward as there is a small tab that interferes with the electric cord plug head. I had to bend back the tab to connect the cord. Our site was a long gravel pull through and level. It was long enough for a big rig and toad. The pull through sites are in the middle of the park with the back-ins around the perimeter. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. My TV antenna picked up several channels. There is a small laundry with two washers and two dryers which take $2 (loonies) each.

Dupont RV Park is located on Fredette Ave. which is close to the center of the village. The campground was about half occupied by contractors and workers, but it was still very quiet. Our site was a gravel back-in surrounded by grass and beautiful landscaping. The utility post shares the water, electrical, and cable TV connections. The electrical connection is sideways which can put a strain on the cable. Cable TV has around 40 channels and a few are distorted and spotty. The Wi-Fi connection is low strength, but does work as I am using it right now for this review. The campground was expanded and rebuilt about four years ago. Plenty of trees have been planted, but it will be years before they provide any shade. There is only one bathroom/shower facility for each sex, but they are immaculate. The laundry has two washers and one dryer. The owners charge $5 per load for washing and drying (self serve). Other than the campsites and amenities mentioned there is no recreation or other facilities available. That is why I believe it is not family friendly even though one could still camp here with kids. There is just nothing here for them. Toads won't fit in the campsites with a long rig. Sites are at most 40 feet long. The owners said that there is a place to park toads next to the office. Also one needs to get a key from the owner to access the washroom/showers and the laundry.

This campground is situated on the east side of the Fraser River (across from Lillooet) with a beautiful view of the river and the surrounding mountains. The access road is fairly steep and gravel making it not suitable for big rigs. The sites are on two terraces and none can fit anything larger than 30 feet. There are a few tent sites available down near the river. Our site was a gravel back-in on the top terrace. It was in the row of full hookup sites. The lower terrace had the majority of sites and only had electric and water. Two sites at the south end were waterfront. There was only one combined washroom and shower. There were also some pit toilets. It was self registration when I registered. I paid the Passport America rate. Someone showed up to open up the office (a converted truck camper) later in the afternoon. No cable TV and the one channel on the antenna was too distorted to watch. The Wi-Fi was too weak to be usable.

Site was a gravel pull-through. It was not level. This site (22) had a great view of the lake. The weeping willow trees on the park drive needed trimming as the branches were dragging over the top of our motorhome. The electrical connection was low to the ground. The sewer outlet was too close to the utility post. I wasn't able to get a secure fit with my sewer pipe. Good selection of channels on the cable TV, but some of them were distorted or spotty. I was unable to connect up with the Wi-Fi even with the help of the owner. Friendly owners who try to help out when asked.

Rate shown is for partial hookup as the water had not been turned on yet. There was a water hydrant near site 34 that we used to fill up our freshwater tank. Site taken was a pull through and level. The site faced south as it gave some shelter from the north wind over the river. As the park had just opened recently there were only two other campers on site. TV available off the antenna. No Wi-Fi signal found. This park has many recreational facilities including a boat launch.

Campground has self registration. Sites were grass back-ins. Side by side hookups. Well off the Interstate so was fairly quiet. Would have rated higher if campground had been cleaner. Had doggie doo in our campsite, an overloaded dumpster, and filthy bathrooms.

Campground host allowed me to sit in my air conditioned RV to register and her husband escorted us to our site. Site was a gravel pull through and level. Hookups were side by side with neighboring site, but it wasn't a problem. WiFi had good signal. There is no cable TV, but had 4-5 local channels off the air.

Rate given Passport America discount. Office warned us about wet sites due to recent storm, but ours was fairly dry. Extra long sites that will fit just about anything. Fairly open area with small trees. WiFi was good strong signal due to a campground that knows how to set up a good antenna system. Laundry was small (only four washers), but clean. Coolest room on site as well, due to welcome air conditioning.

Site was a gravel back-in. Washrooms and laundry under repair and not sure when they will re-open. A flood last month caused some damage, but most of it has been cleaned up. WiFi was useless. No usable signal even within 100 feet of the so called antenna attached to washroom building.

Rate given Good Sam discount. This campground is not what I would call a resort. What it looks like is a former classy place that has been run down over the years. The campground road has holes in the concrete that will damage your tires. The laundry is filthy and half the washing machines don't work. Three pay phones on site looked like they haven't been used in years. Wifi was not strong enough for a usable signal at our site. The only positive, our site was nearly level and had a big shade tree.

Some of the sites in the back near the stream looked attractive. Campground looks like it caters more to seasonals. Some shared hookups. Our neighbor had to use a 50 foot water hose to hook up.

We have been here before and not much has changed except for the W-Fi. The site we got was a 15 amp in the middle of the field. No privacy at all. Our site was fairly level, but very wet. Not sure if it was a heavy rain from earlier or maybe no drainage. Lots of kids around making lots of noise. Camp fires within 10 feet of our site. That's how close the spaces are. Hayrides and games catering to the young set. If you want privacy and quiet this place is not for you.

Cable TV service is not major as shown in Trailer Life directory. It has around a dozen channels and some of them are snowy. WI-FI shows strong signal, but my Skype phone signals were poor. I suspect the Internet Service Provider uses a satellite connection. Private phone no longer in office. It has been removed. I have to question how a fairly expensive campground that does have some nice surroundings ignores something like not having a phone available. Not everyone has a cell phone yet! Also the laundry is far removed from the campsites. For a large campground, three washers and three dryers doesn't seem enough.

Manager was busy at time of registration and gave me a site already occupied. He forgot to give me the code for the washrooms as well. Heavy rain made the gravel sites wet and muddy as there is too much dirt in the gravel. Electricity was only 50 amp, so make sure you have an adapter if you need 30 amp. Campground host told me that WiFi antenna tower is eventually being installed. Off the air TV had around 6 English language channels. For the price (my rate is a Good Sam discount) it definitely could be better. Unfortunately most RV parks around Edmonton are some distance from the city and this was the closest one that had full hookups.

Our campsite was only 30 amp and had no cable TV, but that is what we requested and the spot reserved for us was excellent. Lots of privacy with hedges all around, although I had to position my portable satellite dish on top the motorhome.

From November through to March this park has limited winter facilities meaning the water at the sites is shut off and one must fill up their freshwater tank at the dump station. One of washroom/shower facilities was closed as well. Even so Washington state charges almost full fare for the privilege of using this campground during the winter. Self registration was in effect and make sure you have the right change as one still cannot charge to a credit card at the site like in Oregon state parks. I wish Washington state parks would upgrade their sewer outlets to allow a more secure fit. Still, for the night it was adequate.

Overall, this park served its purpose which was just an overnight stay.

Oleander bushes and a few trees are used as privacy hedges. The water taps have their own pressure regulators which read just over 60 pounds pressure on my gauge. Wi-Fi is still through a satellite internet service provider, so limited to email, website access and no downloading or Skype phone use allowed. Clubhouse used by card players several times a week. There is a library where one can exchange paperback books. Pool tables and some exercise equipment are available. Outside there is shuffleboard and horseshoes. A desert garden with trails is on park property. Two pet donkeys next to the garden are always looking for handouts. Ask at the office what they can eat. There is one improvement. No early morning garbage pickup anymore!

Assigned site had a view of a dairy farm instead of the nearby lake. Site was huge; a pull through with lots of space between other sites. The utility posts in some of the sites are not located very well. In many cases you open your door to the street side with the picnic table on the opposite side. The campsites are at the end of a mile long road from the entrance. When registering you have to supply vehicle registration, insurance, and your drivers license. This is the second county park I have encountered this requirement. Hope it is not a trend. There is no cable TV, but lots of off the air channels anyways. There were no Wi-Fi internet connection that I could find. There are a couple of great aviation museums nearby at the Chino airport.

Had a full hookup site in the Santa Rosa loop. Great sunset right from our spot (site 108) even though we were not right on the beach. Had to move to another site as original site was reserved for the weekend.

There are three sections to the campground. The Bishop loop (primitive section) has the most pull throughs. The utility section has an older Chumash loop with sites that have uneven pavement, and the newer Rumaldo loop which has a few pull throughs, but mostly back in sites. Our site was in the Rumaldo loop, and we had a privacy hedge of oleander on both sides. Nearby are a picnic area, botanical garden and a golf course. In winter it is self registration. The signboard says a charge for animals, but on the deposit post it specifies dogs.

We had a grass back in site near the playground. Cable TV pictures were blurry and we were forced to rely on antenna. There is a washroom in the day use section, but no showers in the park at all. Everyone has to pay a $5 key deposit even if you aren't leaving the park. In the morning I was left looking for the assistant manager to get a refund. The lake itself is a water supply reservoir, so no swimming. We spotted white pelicans near the shoreline. If you intend to use the park keep a close watch out for the park sign. From either direction there is only a small sign.

Without a doubt this is one of the best California state parks. Our water and electric back-in site had enough room for a long fifth wheel and a tow vehicle beside it, although many other sites were much smaller. There were four dump stations, so no waiting for us. The premium sites were basic with no utilities, but what a view. There are great sunsets from the back end of these sites. The beach extends all the way down to Sea Cliff State Park where one can view the wreck of the cement ship Palo Alto.

Our site B3 was a full hookup and located in the back nearest the highway. Cable TV sites which are water and electric (no sewer) are near the entrance in A loop. We picked up a low strength Wi-Fi signal from the info center across the highway. There is a charge for it, except for highway and weather info. There was construction down at the day use area to provide a new access path. Lots of vantage points to get those great sunset pictures.

Location close to Old Town Florence. Shared hookups. My electric was 20 amps, but adjacent site sharing electric box had 30 amps. Manager said it was okay to use the 30 amps if no one occupied that site. WI-FI must be new as manager said it was a secure site and a code was needed to use it. I found it unsecured and there were three park WI-FI sites. I kept getting bumped off and I never did find out why. Sites are gravel with grass between sites. Some sites have a few trees for privacy.

During the winter A & B loops are closed. C loop sites can be reserved, but D loop is first come first serve. Personally I prefer D loop as some of the sites are more open. Noticed a couple of permanently fixed satellite dishes in site D13? so that may be the cable TV shown in the park info? There is no off the air TV available. Pay phone is now close to the ranger station. There are no dumpsters in the loops. You have to take your garbage to the recycle center near the registration booth. The scenery and isolation here make this park one of the best in the state park system.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Rate quoted is a Good Sam discount for a pull thru site with no cable. Our site is number 88 which is in a row of pull thrus just to the side of the office. This row is all pavement and no grass whatsoever. There are some sites which have better landscaping, but for an overnight stay ours is okay. TV reception okay for a few local channels and WI-FI has one of the strongest signals ever received by my WI-FI dish. There must be 5 or 6 newspaper boxes in front of the office and I noticed a bottled drink dispenser inside. I would have rated this park an 8 if in one of campsites that had grass and offered cable TV.

Rate given is with Good Sam discount. The older sites are 30 amps with shade trees. The new sites have 50 amps, but the trees aren't big enough yet to give any shade. There is a convenience store within walking distance. Other than that, most everything else is in town several miles away. The park Wi-Fi costs extra, but there were a couple of other wifi open sites available.

The campground is located in a park along the Sheep River just south of downtown Okotoks. The campground lost 18 campsites in a Spring flood, but the Lions Club hope to have them all fixed up for next year. There are walkways along both sides of Sheep River with a pedestrian bridge connection. Very pleasant staff. Note there are gate barriers which are closed at 11:00 p.m. until 7:30 a.m.

Rate given is with Good Sam discount for a back-in 30 amp site. Pull throughs and 50 amp sites higher. Website pictures looked better compared to being there as campground had an auto junkyard on one side. Cable TV did not work. WiFi available for $2 a day. Campsite has a gravel pad for the RV with grass between the sites. About half the sites appeared to be long term residents.

Had a drive through site with mature shade trees. Cable TV and WIFI worked okay. Quite windy during our visit, but trees help shelter us a bit. Satellite TV near impossible at most sites due to trees. Nearby lake only allows electric motors. The beach is actually a grassy shoreline with a boat dock.

Upon arrival the office couldn't find my reservation. My phone call record was found finally and I was able to get a campsite. Our backin site was on grass and not too level. A few shrubs on either side of our site did make it feel more private. There is some noise from freight trains nearby. Cable TV had a few blurry channels. WIFI works well(using it now for this review) All sites here are 30 or 50 amp and as it's a hot night the air conditioner comes in handy. I would come here again.

Our site was on the waterfront. Nice view of the lake and the town. Site mostly sand and some grass. Power 30 amp only along the lake. The wind off the lake was so strong it rocked our RV.

Electric power was through a light switch. Power off during the night and only came back on at 7am. Back in site fairly level. Wi-Fi advertised was off and typically no one knew when it would be back on. Good restaurant on site.

Water and Sewer not available during our stay. Bathrooms closed as well. Full hookup not available until around beginning of April. Self registration in effect. Paid and dropped money in deposit slot, but someone still came around during the night and left another envelope for me to fill in. This also happened a couple of summers ago. Don't know why whoever does this doesn't check the deposit slot first. Roads around rv park falling apart due to hard winter. Guess I was lucky; park was even open as nothing else was available except Walmart parking lot.

Nicely landscaped park with spacious sites. It was ironic that we were assigned a site that was covered in tree pruning debris, even though the park was at best 10% full. Park could use some more maintenance, as some tables need refinishing and tv cable box covers missing. WIFI signal strong although park office warned that we might not get any signal at all. Even in winter a shuttle bus stops at the park and takes you down to the beach. If you feel like walking its only about 4-5 blocks.

Had some difficulty registering at the Air Museum. Found out from the campground host that the procedure is to phone her to reserve a spot. We were lucky to get one as we had not reserved. This RV park is generally for those visiting the museum or volunteers. Stay is limited to 4 days. The 50 amp connections require a 50 to 30 amp pigtail for those rigs with a 30 amp cord. Sites were pavement with lines for boundaries. For self contained rigs only as there are no restrooms.

Park has many mature eucalyptus, cypress, and pine trees. Our site 20 had a big eucalyptus that kept dropping seed cones on our rig. Easy walk to Windy Cove, Natural History Museum, and Heron Rookery. Campsites needed the accumulated bark,seeds, and sand cleaned off. My experience with California state parks is that this is one job not done enough. There were no butterflies in the grove. Most of them are down in Pismo Beach.

There is a water slide park close by, but it was closed for the winter.

Like an earlier reviewer we tried to get into Catalina State Park, but it was full.

I would stay only for overnight, but there were long term residents there.

Rate reflects monthly rate of $300 plus electricity. Park has 2 laundries which are very clean. Office staff are friendly and helpful. Clubhouse has an outside phone which can be used to call toll free or local numbers (no charge). We have been coming here past three years and are generally happy with this park. One "fly in the ointment" is the local garbage pickup being done at 5 or 6am. Not a great wakeup call!

Lot of long term residences. Cash or check only. Cable TV sites limited. Wi-Fi worked well. Only 2 pull through sites. Sites are fairly narrow. Trailer Life directory says no side by side hookups.

This park is more suitable for snow birds or long term stays. Cable TV has to be applied for through the cable company, so only worth it for monthly stays. Laundry has only 2 washers and 2 dryers. Gets crowded in there! No clubhouse or rec room, but has horseshoes and a group campfire ring. Friendly manager who was very helpful, but if you fill your propane tank here, keep an eye on the gauge. My tank got overfilled by four gallons! Propane price was $2.48 a gallon which was over a dollar cheaper than I paid on the California coast. Open desert behind each site made it easy to hike over to village stores or up in the hills to the south. Nightly rate is weekly rate of $125 divided by 7. The actual daily rate is $30 and monthly $300. Cash or check only.

No pay phone, but private phone in clubhouse OK to use for local or calling card numbers. The free internet is a DSL connection on a clubhouse computer.

Having read a review for another Oceanside rv park that mentioned in passing that Catalina was "an armpit" I went there with caution. Maybe not enough. The park is small and hard to maneuver around in. Half the sites are occupied by old mobile homes. Recent rains made some of the sites soft. I got stuck in one and had to get a tow truck to pull me out. After all that I managed to get a site and got hooked up. Utilities were at shared posts. I had to go over a fence to plug in for electricity. There are no restrooms or showers. The laundromat was clean. Most of the neighbors were friendly enough, although the wife heard a lot of screaming from an adjacent condo complex. Only good reason for staying was due to weather and the price. Other RV parks in Oceanside were over $40. Our rate was for Passport America. I would never have paid full rate for this park. If you have a small rig and don't mind the trailer villa atmosphere then give it a try. Just watch out for the wet spots.

WiFi available in vicinity of gatehouse. We could only stay in our campsite for one night as the registration person did not know if anyone had reserved that site for any future nights. Next morning found out it indeed was reserved and had to move to another site. California state park system needs to change this! Sites are pull throughs in the RV section. Lot of dogs not on leashes during our stay. Train tracks between park and beach, but did not hear much noise. However, campsites close to gatehouse did get some noise from the freeway.

Park is divided up into groves. Pine has sewer hookups, but for monthly stays only. Alder and Birch are for nightly and weekly stays. Cedar is for monthlies, but no sewer connections. It does have honey wagon service. Mature trees throughout the park make for a beautiful setting. WIFI is available in all the park except for Alder.

When we arrived in the afternoon no one was in the office for registration. The office sign said someone would come around, or you could pay at the house in front of the campground, or pay at the fairgrounds office. Big warning about not paying, so I looked around to see who to pay. Finally someone showed up at the office the following morning when we were ready to depart.

Other than lack of a lounge or game room this place is just about perfect.

Cable TV and WIFI reception excellent. On line reservation rates are $3 cheaper than just coming off the road and getting a site. Considering that most other Oregon coast campgrounds have much lower rates in the winter, I think this KOA is overpriced. The office manager told me they still fill up weekends this time of year so I guess they can charge it. Weekdays must be different as there were only four occupied sites when we were there. The office open only limited hours in the winter. Good view of Alsea Bay and the bridge.

Great location along the Columbia River. Large day use area has picnic shelters, tennis, and boat dock facilities. Some construction at time of amphitheater and cabins. Our spacious pull through site was not level. Self registration in effect and Washington State does not accept credit cards like Oregon. They need to install change machines or have someone on duty to register campers. 67 RV sites and 27 tent sites.

Nice location. Pull through site was not level. Cable TV was terrible. Had to use antenna and get off air channels for better reception. WIFI was a fee for service connection and it did not work. Hard to find a good park in Seattle area that is not expensive.

Good access from the interstate. Sites along the river are straight in and back out. WIFI was not working at time. Public phone at nearby gas station. Clean laundry room.

Our site 15 had a great view of the beach and ocean. Access to the beach is by crossing highway 101 and there is a lot of traffic so be careful. No public phone. Nearest one is at a store 1/4 mile north.

Beautiful setting especially the ocean view sites. Nice sized level campsites. Restrooms and laundry were clean and modern. WIFI connection took some time to connect. Our rate was for a waterfront site during the winter season.

One of the most scenic campground locations in Oregon. Self registration in effect during the winter months. Our full hookup site was not level. The best sites were at the front. They had cable TV, but no sewer connection. Good trails to the beaches. The WIFI connection was at the visitor center across the highway from the park. Wood available from the campground hosts. There are yurt rentals available as well.

Fairly old park in the process of being upgraded with a new meeting hall. Newest section close to the highway. Older sections in the back had trees and were quiet. The WIFI connection is fee for service and worked okay. Park has an on-site store and nearby are a gas station, bakery, and souvenir shops. Our nightly rate is Passport America rate in the winter season. The park is good value for the money and I would stay again for overnight. 39 RV sites and 60 tent sites.

This park is hard to find unless you make a hard right from the southbound exit off the freeway onto the service road. Sites fairly close together. Lot of freeway noise. Public phone has been taken out of laundry room. Nearest one half mile away at bowling alley. WIFI did not work and modem in library available only when office was open.

Due to access over a bridge this campground not recommended for big rigs. Our site had electric and water and concrete pad, but most of the other sites (around 5 or 6) were dirt. There is a dump station only; no sewer sites as far as I know. Very scenic with tall redwoods throughout the park. Recent rains the week before made some park roads muddy. Friendly and informative staff. Read the park map carefully to access the sani dump.

Nice location with access to the beach. Lots of space at some sites. Pay phone at gate house did not work. I would stay here again just for the scenery and the sunsets.

Very attractive sites in some sections. There was lots of space between sites. All the sewer connection were in Pine Grove and are for campers staying one month or longer. Our first site was not level, but the second one was. The resort is located in Steckel County Park, 4 miles north of Santa Paula. There are fruit orchards and vineyards in the area. WIFI can be received throughout the park, but difficult at times to connect or stay connected. Best place to connect was at the laundry. About 25 peacocks roam around the park and can be quite noisy at times. Overall I would stay here again just for the scenery.

First time registrants take 15-20 minutes at least for office staff to enter information on computer. Security escorted us to the site. Our site was gravel and easy to back in (for our 24 foot Class C), but some sites were fairly narrow. RV campsites surrounded by resort workers campsites. Surrounding trees helped shelter us a bit from the wind unlike the national park campground across the highway which is wide open. Our sewer outlet was hard to access as it was located on another site behind us with a fence in between sites. The resort has several restaurants, souvenir shop, and the Borax museum. With it being the only full hookup campground in Furnace Creek. I would stay there again.

Friendly office staff, but unfortunately mishandled my registration and it took almost 30 minutes to sort it out. I paid the Passport America rate. Hookups all worked. Back In site was not level. WIFI did not work.

We reserved a site and were given one that was extremely unlevel and a sewer drain on the wrong side of the RV which proved very awkward. The park looked to be in the midst of upgrading some of their sites. Good thing too as on our street a lot of sites were real shabby looking. The newest sites across from some mobile homes have the best view of the lake. Office has a computer that can be used to check email.

Most expensive rv park in Kingman, but it also has the most amenities and it looked to be the cleanest as well. Well off the freeway so it was quiet. Good graveled level sites. WIFI connection was excellent. Park in the middle of a residential area. Some permanent residents in one part of the park away from the overnighters. Nightly rate is with the KOA discount.

We had a water/electric site, but the sani dump worked out okay. Beautiful setting on the river. The cabana sites are next to the water, but only have 15 amp electricity. Only a few sewer hookups and if you want one better reserve it. Handy store on site, but adjacent restaurant appeared closed during our stay. Interpretive center was interesting and good view of the area short distance up a medium difficulty trail.

Good location in Ajo with most town facilities within walking distance. Some of the sites in the back are not level, but ours in front was okay. The park has graveled many of the sites which keeps the dust down. A few sites have small shade trees. Shrubs are used as dividers between many sites. Clean laundry rooms. Cable TV had a program guide channel which helps. WIFI connected to a satellite internet provider which usually worked okay except in the evening when too many campers on the web would slow down the connection. Most nights there were cards or pool in the clubhouse. We were there for a month and expect to go back again.

Back-in site not level. Hookups all worked. Sites are more sand than advertised grass. Overnighters in front get all the traffic noise from the highway. Sites in back near the irrigation canal are fairly quiet. WIFI is a fee service and usually works. After a years absence the internet provider still had my old user name, but wouldn't let me connect due to problems with billing address.

Office staff took a long time to register us as he had to figure out our rate. Stayed two days and second day was actually $10. Pets, including cats, are charged $1 a day extra. The sani dump had a slow drain causing lineups. Construction near some sites with a lot of dust at times. Back In site was not level. Quiet at night with good views of reservoir and hills. White pelicans feeding on lake at the time.

Good access from I-82. On arrival I had to self register. Passport America rate was $14.50, but had to pay $20 due no change. Site was fairly level. Hookups all worked, but sewer location was towards the front of the RV. WIFI connection was intermittent.
