Fairly new campground on the banks of Prineville Lake. All paved with water and power at sites. Dual dump station at the exit. A few sites are right on the water but all are close to the shoreline. Some sites can be a little challenge to level. Many mature trees around but no lawns. This is high desert territory. It has 27 first come, first served sites but some can be reserved on reserveamerica.com. Decent spacing between most sites. We would camp there again.

Nice new small park. Not a destination, but a good wayside to take a break for a day or more. The campground is next to a nice day use area with a large structure for groups. Campground and day use area is adjacent to a small earth dam and reservoir. Sites are level and gravel. New trees and shrubs planted and will provide privacy and shade as they grow. We would camp here again.

Third time at this park. Great wayside if you have to spend a lot of time on I84. Two levels, sometimes the upper level is more windy but has better views of the Snake River. Nice lawns and lots of shade. Elec and water at site. Sites level and paved. Tables and fire pits at all sites and the park is well maintained. Two dump stations in park. Cell phone reception is good and a park wifi is available at a reasonable cost. Some sites close together but most have decent spacing. Quite a few double sites with water and power, but you may need extensions for at least on of the RV's. We will stay here again.

Not usually a fan of KOA's but this one is nice and unique. At 9000' probably the highest RV park in the US. Fairly new and well equipped. Pretty much a gravel parking lot with few trees and no lawns. There is a pet area but it's mostly a poop zone with no exercise area. None the less, very good amenities with a very nice laundry room, hot tubs, store (minimal with no produce), full hook ups, cable, propane, and friendly and helpful service.

I read the other review that said it was the most beautiful park they had visited. Didn't quite say why though. It has spectacular scenery. We were amazed and really didn't have any expectation. You drive in of Hiway 40 through low rolling hills. All of sudden after about 6 miles on paved road, it narrows down to a very narrow canyon with beautiful rock formations and pinnacles. After another 1 1/2 miles on dirt/gravel road in pretty good condition, you make a turn in to Camelot and drive thru pinnacle rock formations to either the lodge or campground. It's like being at the bottom of a mini version of the Grand or Bryce Canyon. Huge cliffs and pinnacle so close you feel like you could reach out and touch them. The campgrounds have power and water with a dump station near the exit. Big open area with lawns. All sites back up to a small river with Cutthroat and Brown trout on the Strawberry river. The spacing would be a little tight if was full, but it's under the radar so I doubt it would ever be full. Only one other camper. Website pics don't do this place justice. I have a full size truck towing a 27' Airstream and could easily access the campground. The map directions on the website could be improved. The mileage is correct but the "Red Creek exit" is a little confusing. There is no "exit" in the traditional sense. You come to a depression of Hiway 40 and when you cross Red Creek, you turn on Road 41950 W. Cell phone reception was spotty, but at time we could access the internet with our Verizon data card and a Wilson cradle amplifier.

Well maintained and manicured park with full hookups at site. Three different loops. The RV loop had decent spacing but not great. Some shady spots. Very good shopping and dining nearby, everything you could want. The other two loops are heavily wooded and well spaced but only have power. Some sites could take a large trailer or motorhome. Mosquitoes not too bad considering the ponds nearby. Some wild turkeys and very large snapping turtles wandering around. Pets must be on 6' leash at all times. Cell reception was good.

Beautiful park with lawns, swim beach, electric at site, and only $16. We were here 6/10-12 and virtually no mosquitoes. Great after being eaten alive in MN. Nice fire pits with grills in good condition. Looks like all the sites are large and level. Verizon reception pretty good and 5 bars using a Wilson cradle amplifier. Mid-week seems OK to get sites but it looks like the weekends are booked. Nice shade trees and decent spacing between sites. Appears to be very well maintained.

Nice small wayside park in a typical mid west charming small town. This includes a rodeo arena and small park. We are here on Memorial Day 2014 and no one here. Nice level spaces with lawns. We tried to find info about rates but based on information on a billboard it appears to be free.

Nice small state park within 20 miles of the southern part of Seattle. I agree with the comments about the walk ins and the site board not being very helpful. Two sides to it by crossing the road separating the park. West side, camping and the shore front day use area. Winter use is great. Hard to find all years campsites sometimes. Looks like major upgrades to the utilities. Not our first time here and will stay again as a wayside.

We came for the hot air balloon festival. It's open all year and even though they have been pounded by recent storms, they carved out a space in the snow for us. New owners and many upgrades have been made in the restroom: showers, laundromat, electrical, plumbing, and more. I would give it a 10 except it looks like it can get a little tight if the park was full. Can't say much about the grounds since it's under 2-3 feet of snow, but the area they cleared for us is grass and is solid even with the melting snow. Fastest internet I have ever experienced in any park from Homer, Alaska to New Orleans. Staff is great and very friendly. So easy to walk to the historic, rustic small downtown. Cell phone (Verizon) signal was stronger than I get in some metropolitan areas. Deer consider this a safe nursery area and they walk right next to our RV like we not even here. Also, eagles are a common site. It's hard to find winter camping with full hookups in "real" winter. This place is a gem.

Nice park right on Banks Lake at the north end of Electric City. It has two sections and we camped on the north section in site #28 backed right to the lake. The north end is a little higher elevation as it is about 30 feet above the water. The south section seems to be a little tighter between site but it is right at water level and popular with boaters. All spots have shade and it is right on Highway 155 so there is some road noise but not too bad. It appears that back in sites have power and water but not sewer. Most sites have a little grass. I haven't seen the south facilities but the north ones are old but clean. Unfortunately, there is only one shower stall each for men and women at the north end. It's only a couple of miles south of Grand Coulee dam and there is a big Safeway on the way to the dam. Management seems nice and helpful and there is boat rentals and a decent store on site. There is a dump station at both locations. We would stay here again.

The views from here are fantastic. The park is very clean with a full laundry. It's a small park a little walking distance from all the hustle and bustle of the harbor. We have a front bedroom Airstream that has full wrap around windows in the rear dinette area, so the view is a 9-10. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots to do here and the drive in has incredible views during the spring when there is still lots of snow on the mountains. We have 2 days here and tempted to go for 3. We would stay here again.

Nice park though considerably better than most parking lots. It gets an 7 simply because of the view. It also has laundry facilities that seem expensive compared to other parks. It's convenient in that it's close to town and has a small store and restaurant. I see reviews of the spit but it's like a carnival atmosphere there and not a single tree. Actually, I think it's pretty ugly and crowded there especially during the summer.

We loved this place. Very good balance of amenities and true campground surroundings. Well spaced sites all along the Tolsana creek. All have tables and fire rings. Small store and laundry available. Wi-Fi good depending on your site and the number of users. Our first stay was on the way to Homer and we liked it so much we stayed 3 days instead of the 1 planned and stayed again on the way back. Very friendly staff. Office also has some on the most unusual and interesting antiques for sale. Fishing for Graylings right next to your site. Large playground area with a volleyball net. All the roads are compacted gravel and in good condition. Big rigs can easily drive through the park. My truck/trailer combination is a little over 50' and I was able to easily drive throughout the park. Dump station on site at no extra charge.

This one of the most beautiful campgrounds I have ever seen. It is immaculate with paved roads and sites. We were here in early spring and the scenery was nothing short of spectacular. A kayak rental shack is near the lake. A great ATV, bike, or hike trail goes along the lake for about 12 miles. Weekends fill up fast and it's a 10 mile road from the main highway, but worth it if you get a site. Most sites are well spaced and heavily wooded with tables and fire rings.

Very well manicured park with paved roads and campsites. Easy access from Anchorage, good TV and cell phone reception. No showers and clean pit toilets. Very busy on weekends due to being close to Anchorage. Most campsites well spaced. Very close to Eagle River and King Salmon fishing allowed on certain days for 1 month after Memorial day.

This is such a depressing place. It is right on the junction of two major roads. It is flat with two very sad looking pines in the whole place. It is a flat gravel parking lot. The bathrooms are clean, and there is a river nearby, but no sites on the river. The woman at the desk was very friendly and we used our Passport membership, so it was cheap, but never, never again would I camp here. There's nothing really wrong with it if you don't mind gravel parking lots with no trees at a busy intersection, but there are better places to park in Soldatna, for sure.

Park is basically a gravel parking lot, but very convenient because it is in the center of town. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and laundry are very clean. There is a very good grocery store right across the street. The Wi-Fi was poor. We stayed there in mid May and it was nice to have water power and sewer available this early.

Nice little park right on the highway but also next to a small lake. We were there early so only power and TV cable were available. Water and sewer were frozen. Only about 7 sites were available due to frozen water lines. Bathrooms and laundry were under renovation so no comments on those. Decent restaurant and full services with gas, diesel, and propane. Mechanics were there for repairs. Staff was nice. We would stay there again if lake side site was available.
