Located about 20 km west of Sooke on highway 14. Typical provincial park layout. Table and fire ring provided at each site. This is located in a rain forest so don't expect to see much of the sun. Some sites would fit a 35 footer but not many. It gets very busy in the summer months so reservations are a must. There is very little to do at this park. This is a very good place to relax and enjoy the quiet. A number walking trails will lead you to a rock and pebbly beach where you can watch for seals, sea lions etc (including whales in season). The water is cold so don't expect to go swimming. A few km west is Jordan River if you are into surfing or kayaking.
This park is all about fishing although it can be used as a base to explore the west coast of Vancouver Island. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The sites are on grass and have a fire pit and table. They appear to be well spaced, but there was only one other unit in the park while we were there. No kids were around at this time of year, but we did see a playground, mini golf, and a pool. It is right on the ocean but there isn't a sandy beach. We used this park as a base and will be back.
We have spent the last 6 months here. This park is very convenient to pretty much everywhere in Victoria. It is a very quiet place considering the close proximity to the city. The harbor views are spectacular. The walkway to downtown is almost at your doorstep. The water taxi service is a treat (available only during the summer). A propane delivery service is available upon request. Kayak Rentals, Fishing Charters etc. are available at the Marina which is only steps away. There is no playground and a steep, rocky, embankment to the ocean. Not a good place for kids. We found that, after the transient guests disappeared, the cleanliness of the park improved a lot. Long term guests pick up after their pets and looked after trash a lot better. Long term guests usually just stay for the winter as the climate is very mild. We noted only five units that were year round residents. Some were skirted but none were tacky. There were only a few “winter” guests that let their spaces and units degrade. The park is very safe. These are the good things. What we didn’t like was that services are shared by two sites. This configuration works as long as a motor home and a Trailer share so there was a little more room. Motor homes nosed into their site and trailers backed in. If you are unlucky, then your cables and hoses have to run under your unit. Sites are very close together. This is an older park not designed for today’s units with slides. They can accommodate 45 footers though. The roads are paved but tired. The sites are gravel which is well suited to accommodate the winter rains. Not so nice in the warm weather though. There is no Wi-Fi but internet is available in the Laundry Room and at the on-site restaurant. Cable TV is available but for most channels you will need a box. If you need to depend on the parks bathroom facilities they are limited but clean. Our monthly rate was about $20.00 per night including taxes. We would stay again.
This park is hard for me to rate. I did not see it during the daylight. I discovered this park because I ended up taking an alternative route to my destination. A raging snow storm was covering a high mountain pass which was my intended route. I fully expected to spend the night in a pull off beside the road and I was looking for one when I saw their sign. I arrived just before 9:00 PM and was surprised to find they were open. Check in was pleasant and efficient. I was directed to a pull through so I would not have to disconnect the toad. I was worried the site would be too narrow to use our slides but we had plenty of room. We were snuggled between trees that, during regular season, would allow privacy. The roads were gravel as was the site. It was quite level and easy to maneuver into. Water had not been turned on yet as it was still below freezing outside. 30 amp power was good. It powered two electric heaters as well as all of our other utilities just fine. I took a quick walk around the park and found the layout to be a bit of a hodge podge but most sites seemed to be a descent size. I did not use any of the facilities so cannot comment on their condition. Cable and Wi-Fi were not offered so I expect do not exist. I did hear trains during the night but after having been on the road for almost 14 hours, not much mattered except my pillow. I am giving this park a higher rating than it may deserve but it served my purpose well. I am planning to return during warmer weather to explore the surroundings and perhaps do some panning for gold. Price of $33.00 includes all taxes.
Easy on and off of the freeway. Check in was quick and efficient. The rules and regs are easy to handle. The sites are small but well planned. The pad is asphalt with a stamped patio area. The rest is grass and you are boxed in with a hedge. It is clean and well maintained. The in-door pool and hot tub area were nice. Laundry was expensive but washers and driers worked well. It has a dedicated area to wash your rig. Great path/dog walk area that is heavily forested and follows a brook and it’s about a mile long one way. There is some train and traffic noise but that is to be expected. It is located in the middle of a city. On-site store appeared to be well stocked. Shopping not within walking distance but a short drive away. Wi-Fi is free for the first ½ hour then $5.00/day. The signal was strong and fast. Cable TV worked well with a good variety of channels. This park is just a little overpriced for what you get but, since there are no other parks in the area, we would return.
We chose this park because it appeared to have many good reviews. Just off of I-5 with easy access. It looked good on arrival. I’ll list the good things first. It is clean, well landscaped, and mostly quiet. Close to shopping, great laundry facilities and they list a pool and exercise equipment. The negatives: The first thing I saw when stopping to check in was a large sign saying no dogs over 40 pounds. A little odd but I shrugged it off. Our dog is less than 10 pounds. Check in was quick and easy…then we were given directions to our site. I had asked for a pull through because this was just going to be an over-night. I was told I had to unhook the toad as the site was configured with hook-ups at the rear. I had paid a premium for the pull through but I guess if the Jeep had to go in first it was not that big of a deal. Then I was told how to get to the site. I had to go all the way back to the entrance (office is near the back of the park) to take a perimeter road because my rig was too big to make some turns! I’m only a 27 footer. The roads are very narrow. Got to our site only to discover it is just barely wide enough for my rig with the slides out. You cannot walk on the concrete pad from front to rear of your rig without stepping on the grass. That wouldn’t have been too bad except the grass is on a fairly steep slope. The slope cannot be used to sit and relax on. Obviously no table ‘cause it would slide away. I guess it’s pretty to look at but I would have settled for flat dirt with a table and a place to sit and relax. That leaves you with what is left of your pad for your grill and a couple of chairs if you want to sit outside. Don’t worry about having room for the awning out. You couldn’t use the shade anyway. The rules state that no rug or carpet can be on the grass. No worries. It's too steep to use for any reason. Do not park your toad with the bumper anywhere near the road and do not get anywhere near the grass with the wheels of any vehicle. It’s in the rules. To make sure you don’t get a wheel in the grass they have planted steel posts at the site exits. If you have a bigger rig and aren’t careful, the park owner will make sure that your rig is damaged rather than have the grass touched. This place is “don’t “crazy. The roads have “No Parking” painted on them everywhere. No Dogs signs are everywhere. The map we were given at check-in showed a Pet area just south of the office…..except when you get there, signs saying no pets allowed are everywhere? I questioned the staff and was told the best place for your pet is outside of the park…across a four lane road in the Shopping Center Parking lot. This is not a pet friendly park. This is not a kid friendly park. I’m glad we didn’t bring our Grandchildren. They would like them to be leashed at all times too. This is plainly just not a friendly park. It reminds me of an Aunt’s house where the furniture was covered in plastic. You are welcome to visit if you just sit and don’t move. Wi-Fi is included in the price and they have 4 hot spots. None had a signal strong enough to be effective. Cable too, was included. The selection was a number of local with a bit of religious and Spanish. I could have done just as good using our antenna. I can’t believe that his place has received so many high ratings. Before relying on just numbers like I did, READ all of the reviews. All of the negatives have been listed by users before me. Look at their photos. The first one shows the size of the sites. This Class A didn’t even have any slides. I have a hard time giving this place a two for the price they charge. We paid $38.00 per night and will never be back.
Easy access to park. Friendly check in. Pull-through was long and wide enough to accommodate us without disconnecting our tow. Site was level and all services were well placed and working fine. It was clean and quiet. There are some long term residents but their areas were not terribly cluttered. The dog walk is very small. It's not really a walk just a small pen. There was only one thing that really bothered me about this park. The toilet stalls did not have doors. There was instead a shower curtain for privacy. The shower stalls had doors. Still, all in all a good overnighter. We paid $30.25 including tax and Good Sam discount. We will return.
Great park. We loved it here. Check in was easy and fast. The host met us while we were entering the park. He guided us into the site even though it was not necessary. The sites are long, level concrete with all services correctly placed and properly working. Nice wide grassy strip separating the pads. Grass was well manicured. The only downside was the lack of mature trees. It was very warm in Napa and some shade would have been nice. Rules were not overbearing. Internet and cell service was 100%. We paid $38.00 per night including the Good Sam discount. We will return.
Check in was quick and friendly. We were in the overflow section which is just a parking lot but we knew that going in. Spaces were wide and long enough for us. We did not feel cramped. The camp host was friendly and helpful. The location is what attracted us and brought us back. We were here about 4 years ago. We were disappointed in the level of service though. There are no sinks in the bathrooms and half of them have been closed due to budget cuts. Garbage pick up must be limited too as the bins were full. The place no longer has the atmosphere that we found before. The dump station is closed (we had to drive a couple of miles to the next State Park to dump). I doubt if we will be back. We paid $55.00 to stay in a bare parking lot with limited service. The Parks Department needs to shake their heads.
Check in was efficient and professional. Rules for dogs were spelled out clearly. None were unreasonable. Sites are all gravel. No grass or patio. You get your services, a table and a fire pit. I think it would have been nice to have some type of patio just to keep your rig a little less filled with sand. Assess to the great beach was easy. Other guests were friendly and well behaved. All of the services worked well including the Wi-Fi that is part of the package. Cell service was excellent. The only big down side was our site(132). It has to have been the only one in the park that wasn't level. I added 4" the both front levelers. It made the first step to get into the rig a little big. All in all, minor issues. We will return. $41.00 included the additional for the dog.
Rating is for what we expected. This is a gravel parking lot. You get an aluminum picnic table and a fire ring. The sites are large and pretty level. The surrounding desert scenery is beautiful. The night skies are amazing but is still just a parking lot. If you are expecting anything else you will be disappointed. Generators are allowed right now because many of the other campgrounds are closed. We would return.
Check in was quick, friendly, and professional. The sites are paved and accommodated our rig, tow, and slides very well. No patio but well maintained grass with reasonable space from our neighbors. All amenities worked as expected. The noise from the freeway was not too bad. We were in site 75 near the back. I have not deducted for the noise because we were forewarned by previous posts. Management warned us about leaving anything out at night because of their sprinklers coming on and because there appear to be a number of homeless people living in the bush near by. I noticed that they have erected fencing to help eliminate the free-loaders. We have no complaints. We requested maintenance rake the long pine needles from our site because our dog dragged then in. They were at our site within minutes. The pool and hot tub looked clean as did the social room, but we didn't use them. Bathroom use requires a 5 digit code. This is not very user friendly, but it does keep the bums out (no pun intended). We paid $70.00 per night and this included $4.00 for the dog. We would return.
Warm professional greeting on arrival. Escort to site. Site is wide enough for slides and long enough so that we did not have to disconnect the toad. Site is level with a small concrete patio. Nice landscaping. No fire ring. Washrooms are very dated but clean. Wi-Fi is PAY! $5.00/day or $20.00/ week. Points lost for pay Wi-Fi and dated facility. No fuel of groceries within walking distance. Pick up your supplies before you park. Price reflects $1.00 for cable TV and Good Sam discount. We would stay again.
Check-in was efficient, friendly and helpful. We were asked how we chose the park and when we told them it was because of the reviews from rvparkreview they were pleased. This park is clean, well laid out and very nicely landscaped. We had a pull through (site 33) and there was plenty of room for both of our slides, awning, and to park our toad. Most sites are able to accommodate even the largest of big rigs. The pad was level concrete. The site was grass and washed pea gravel. It had a fire pit and an aluminum picnic table. The washroom/showers were clean and updated. We were given tokens at check-in so the showers were free. The small store/gift shop appeared to be well stocked. The managers had planned an event for every evening but we chose not to attend any. The pool and hot tub were clean. There was no cable TV but we knew that going in. Wi-Fi was included in the price and it worked very well. The park has a shuttle service that will take you to Zion (we did not use it). There are two fenced dog runs but are quite small. Neither are grassed which is too bad because our dog will not do her business unless she is on grass. (I won’t deduct points just because our dog is fussy). We had only one problem. The 30 amp service was only delivering 15 amps. One of the dual breakers was faulty. I’m not deducting points because, until we told them, how could they know? I think more RVers should carry and use Surge Protectors. Ours picked up the problem immediately. We used the circuit until it was repaired simply because it worked the same as using a 15 amp adapter. This is a good base to use for visiting Zion. We will be back.
Good overnighter. Site was long enough that we didn't have to disconnect the toad. Our site had a level gravel pad just wide enough for the coach. The rest of the site was unlevel dirt and rocks. There was a very small picnic table (unlevel) and no fire pit. No pet area. The owner said to walk our dog beside the highway. Free Wi-Fi worked well. No cable TV. Shade trees were nice. Rest rooms and laundry were clean (free shower). Owner was friendly. We would not likely stay here again.
An obvious ex-KOA. We asked for, and were given, full hook-ups. We were in the E section and it has a lot of permanents. Their units were skirted and had large propane tanks sitting on their sites. That being said, there was not a lot of junk visible. They were fairly neat and tidy. Our site was gravel and dirt. We were able to extend our slides but not the awning. The water,sewer and power were positioned mid stall so they were convenient. We had table and firepit "shared" with our neighbor. The stalls work so that the services for two units are in the center. Too cosy for us. The pet area was not fenced but was clean (bags provided). The non-pet areas had lots of doggie do around so some people were obviously too lazy to take their pooches for a walk. Overall, we were not impressed. If we are back in this area, we will keep going. Price paid was with Good Sam and included the extra for the dog.
This is so much better than Lewis & Clark down the road in Shelby. There is NO WIND. The sites are conventional as apposed to "circle the wagons". The operator is very friendly and accommodating. The park is older but everything is neat, clean & tidy. We were given a pull through and didn't need to disconnect our toad. Longer units would have to. As others have observed, there is a very nice park across the street. Lots of stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. Easy off, easy on to I 15. This was just an over nighter for us but we will return. We spent many nights at Lewis & Clark because we did not know this place existed. We will never go back there. Cell access was good, Internet worked fine, No camp fires, no bugs or mosses. Site was pretty level and wide enough for both of our slides and awning to fully extend. It appears that there are a few long termed, but their sites were tidy.
This is boon docking. There are no facilities other than "out houses" and a hand water pump available. The vistas are spectacular. Very quiet and serene. There are sites situated very close to the river. Also some site that are very close to the Trans-Canada Highway so these will be quite noisy. Not big rig friendly at all. The park road is narrow and winding. Lots of low hanging branches and large trees to maneuver around. Just a few miles to Canmore where there are all amenities and plenty to see and do. The best part of our visit was a Black Bear wandering through our site in broad day light. We would stay here again.
Very kid friendly. Don't expect peace and quiet during the day. Rules are enforced and there are a number. Follow the "common sense" rules and you will have a great stay. Wonderful "kid friendly" beach/lake a short walk across the road. Shade trees are abundant. The RV section is tightly packed. Expect to get to know your neighbor. Reservations are a must. Check the URL for rules and expectations. Plenty of activities for all ages near by. The bathrooms are a bit dated but clean. The roads and pads are NOT paved. Small bit of grass and gravel in the A section. The rest appeared to be all grass. We would stay here again (only when entertaining grand kids).
This place has been a family run operation for about 50 years. The owners have done a great job keeping up with the times. It is always clean and neat. The full timer area is segregated and it is kept tidy as well. Lots to do in the area if you like the outdoors. No shopping near other than groceries and fuel. We love the creek that runs through the park. This place is always quiet and peaceful.
This park is full of noisy Quads. It is geared for ATV users. Trails are accessable right from the camp site. The site we were assigned was level but small. The water and power were poorly located. The roads were dusty and the wash rooms were located far away at the Office/Service Station. For an ATV user, this place may be ideal. For us it was: not so much. We will never be back.
This is the only location within the park boundary with services. The office staff were friendly and helpful. The washrooms were very clean but no showers are available. There is no such thing as a level site in this park. The picnic table was chained and cemented down. Not level nor in a convenient location. Shade trees are sporadic. Your neighbors are very close. I would not stay here again. There are private parks just outside of the park in Tusayan that are service by the park shuttle service.
We are glad that we drove the extra distance to stay inside the park. It made touring and hiking that much easier. Our site was not very level. It took two blocks to do the job but we feel it was a small price to pay for the scenery and location. There are bear warning signs stating not to leave any food about. We weren't lucky enough to see any bears though. The sites are very private which is nice. We would stay here again.
The pull throughs were long and wide. Nice grass, but there were not enough trees. The park was set back from the hiway so there was minimal noise. We felt it was a great base from which to see the area. We felt very at home because we tow a Jeep Wrangler. Moab is serious Jeep country...for good reason. The speed limit is strictly enforced at 5MPH which we didn't mind. There a horse pasture next door and it was nice that the very friendly horses came to visit. We would stay here again.
Easy on, easy off of the Interstate. Not much road noise, but the train traffic was bad. Nice big level pull through sites. You pay at the Service Station Next door before visiting the Camp Host to check in. We found this a little odd. Although we did not have any difficulty with the management, abrupt messages regarding guest behaviour posted in a number of places throughout the park did not make us feel welcome. We will look elsewhere for a better overnighter.
Easy on, easy off of the Interstate. It was far enough from the hiway so that it wasn't too noisy. IMO it is a good overnighter. It would be better if there were some trees to break the wind. We were assigned a site that would at least shelter the right side of our unit from the wind. There are no pull throughs but most sites are "curb-side". We would overnight there again.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The sites are fairly large and level. We found this park to be excellent value as all services were included in the price including cable TV and WiFi. It does not have a pool but does have a hot tub. We would return to this park.
The on site hosts were friendly and helpful. Easy access to highway 101. We were very pleased with this park. The beach was beautiful. The sites were level and well maintained. We will return to this park
Although quite expensive, we felt the price was justified. The park is very well maintained. All services are included in the price including cable TV and WiFi. Our level site included a tiled patio as well as a Mexican style fireplace. A short, well marked, trail leads across some dunes to the beach. We would stay at this park again.
We were pleased with this park. The staff were friendly and helpful. Easy off, easy on I-80. The grassy sites were level and well maintained. Be aware. The sprinkler system comes on early in the morning. It is not noisy but equipment left outside will get wet. The pool is clean, fenced and well maintained. WiFi is not free though. We would return to this park.
As an overnighter we found this park to be excellent. Easy off, easy on and "quiet". The staff were friendly and helpful. WiFi is free as is cable TV. Our site was big and level. We did not have to disconnect our toad. Fast food and restaurants (and a bar) are very close by if you don't feel like cooking. We would return to this park.
We found this park to be poor value for our dollar. It was too far off of the main road. The access road was rough and narrow for about three miles and no way to turn around with our towed. The sites were dirt only. Our site, and others we viewed, were not very level. WiFi was pay. No cable TV. Not a fair value for the services available. We would not return to this park.
