This is a very large and busy camping park. The park staff were very helpful in helping us extend our stay. Check in was fast and friendly. The park and restrooms were clean and well maintained. There were trails for biking and trails to the beach. The sites were roomy but privacy between sites was lacking, there are a lot of trees but not much low brush to provide privacy. The park is very close to the Oregon Coast aquarium and handy to the town of Newport. The park staff and campground hosts were great.

This is a great state park. Our site had full hook ups. The privacy is good for most sites. The park and restrooms was clean and well maintained. There were programs each night we were there, and the hosts went around the park and invited everyone. There were trails for hiking and biking and trails to the beach. The park staff and campground hosts were friendly and helpful.

Not your typical KOA ,but for us that was a good thing. Most sites had good privacy and are located in a heavily wooded area. Many sites are long and work for big rigs. If you have slides on both sides it may be a tight fit with trees but plenty of space between the next RV. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were clean. The pool and hot tub were nice. There were free nightly mini train rides and a morning pancake and sausage breakfast for a fee. There is a large fenced dog run. The store is well stocked. Check in was fast and friendly. Our site was level but some may need a few blocks. The WIFI did not work well at our site, but there was a good Verizon signal for our MIFI. Some sites had basic cable TV. The setting is like a state park but with more amenities.

This park is not fancy but was a pleasant surprise in a dry high desert area. The grass was green and nicely kept and the lake views and access were nice. There is a boat landing and piers for fishing and the people who were fishing had very good luck. We were allowed to pick the site of our choice. The lady at check in came across as gruff but was not unpleasant. There are no discounts available and I thought the price was a little high but there are not many choices in this area. The bathrooms were clean but older. All in all we had a pleasant stay here and would stay again.

Probably the nicest park we have ever stayed at. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were well kept with green grass, many flowers and nice landscaping. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were deluxe and clean. There were too many amenities to remember including a game room, club house, hot tub, exercise room, nightly community campfire, Friday night happy hours with free goodies (BYOB) escorted parking, free newspaper delivered to your RV daily and more. The beach access is several blocks away through a tunnel and on the other side of the highway and down 77 steps. The only possible negative would be that some sites are a bit short and you may have to park your tow diagonally in front of your rig or in the parking area. I have to repeat that that the staff were friendly and welcoming.

This is the nicest park in the area. You will likely need reservations during the peak season as it was full including the overflow during our visit in August. Check in was fast and staff were very pleasant and helpful. The park has many amenities including an indoor swimming pool, game room, camp store with fair prices, 1st class laundry, gas and diesel fuel and more. Everything was clean and well kept and staff couldn't be nicer. The sites were of a reasonable size and modern utilities worked well. Most sites are well wooded. A great park, but expect it to be busy with kids and dogs every where. Haystack Rock and Ecola Beach State Park are both stunning and should not be missed. Go to Haystack Rock at low tide and you will see incredible sea life in the tide pools. This is a great park and we would stay again.

This is a pretty basic park but it had direct access to the ocean and a long sandy beach via about a 2 block long trail through the dunes. You cannot see the ocean due to the height of the dunes but you can hear the waves crashing. Check in was easy and the lady at check in was very pleasant. The hookups all worked. The shower, bathroom and laundry were older but clean. The cost was reasonable for an ocean access park in this area. The sites are larger than the parks in town and it is in a very quiet area. The WIFI worked well. Our cable TV was usable but snowy. Good Sam and veterans discounts are available. This park is not fancy but is quiet and peaceful and we would stay here again.

This is a pretty basic park, there many full hookup pull thru sites that are suitable for big rigs. There are back in water & electric sites and several tent sites. Check in was easy and pleasant and the lady that checked us in gave us a map of the area and suggested several local attractions. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were clean. The WIFI worked well. You have to use quarters for the showers. The park was well kept with many flowers planted. The park is close to highway 101 but the noise is not too bad. We were happy with our stay and would come back. Good Sam and veterans discounts are available.

This is a smaller state park on a small river in the mountains. The camp hosts were friendly. There are campfire rings and picnic tables. There is a short hiking trail and several river accesses. There are about 6 sites that are suitable for big rigs. All sites have electric but no water or sewer. There are no showers, so I had to swim in the river. There are several first come first serve sites, and the rest can be reserved. You self register if you don't have reservations. We saw deer in the park.

Very good for the price. Check in was easy, and owners friendly and helpful. Sites were narrow, but long enough for the biggest rigs. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were very clean. The park was pretty basic but did have a nice swimming pool. It was far enough from the freeway so traffic noise was not an issue. Cash or check only, no credit cards are accepted.

Quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. The sites are roomy, the grounds are well kept, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The restrooms and laundry were very clean. Trout fishing and watching on site. Some big rig sites. A basic camp store with fair prices. We will be back.

This park is part of the city park system of the city of Oak Harbor. The actual rv parking area is not fancy but there are full hookups in good condition. There are also picnic tables for each site. The park is first come, first serve with self registration. You must pay by cash or check the very reasonable rate of $20.00 a day. The RV park adjoins a very well maintained city park on the bay. The grass is watered, green and well groomed. There is beach access and a boat ramp. There are also extensive paved walking trails along the harbor with many benches and picnic tables. There are several playgrounds as well as a swimming lagoon and many other amenities. The park is located near 2 large grocery stores and many shopping and dining opportunities. You can walk downtown and to the marina. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we wrote a thank you email to the mayor and park department.

This is a beautiful heavily wooded state park. There are beautiful ocean & sunset views along the bluff trail that starts at the campground. While the views are beautiful very little of beach is accessible due to the high bluffs. Some but not all sites are suitable for big rigs due to a lot of very large trees. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The office was seldom open but staff were seen frequently checking and maintaining the campground. If you have to self check in be sure to check the board at the check in station for available campsites. The showers take tokens that can be purchased from a vending machine at the check in station. All the campsites had a picnic table and fire ring and the campground host kept the sites clean. We enjoyed our time at this park and would stay again.

This is a very clean & well maintained park. They water the grass so it was lush and green. The sites were roomy and long with the utilities in good condition and well located. There are no sewer hookups. Our site was level and paved. The bathrooms and showers were clean with everything in good working order. You have to self check in, be sure to check the board to see what sites are available and for how long. Verizon had a good signal but there were no TV channels available off our antenna. This park is located along a clear scenic mountain river that is a very pleasant place to relax and watch the water go by. They also have several well groomed hiking trails and a nice playground for the kids. There are fire rings and new picnic tables. The price I listed is for a premium river site. Sites off the river are less. They also have 2 brand new cabins for rent, tent sites and a group site with shelters. We enjoyed and extended our stay here and would come back.

The bathrooms, showers and laundry were clean with everything in good working order. Check in was fast and friendly and we were escorted to our site and were guided in.

This park is located along a clear scenic mountain river that is a very pleasant place to relax and watch the water go by. They give a Good Sam discount if you are a member. We enjoyed and extended our stay here and would come back.

We didn't care for this park. It was very busy. The lakefront sites are very close together and not deep enough to park your tow. The roads are very dusty and the speed bumps are excessive. The water quality of the lake was dirty and murky. Kids were yelling and screaming and running everywhere. There are many seasonal sites. On the more positive side check in was easy and office staff were friendly. The utilities on our site were well located and in good condition. The bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean for the heavy use they recieve. There are some quieter and larger sites at the far end on the hill and near the club house. Be sure to request these if you want to be away from the heavy activity lakeside. Many people seem to like it here but it was just to big and busy for our taste.

This is a nice park but the sites were a little close for us. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The utility hookups were well located and in good condition. The swimming pool was large, clean and warm. There were quite a few seasonal sites, some were a little cluttered.

This is a clean & quiet park. It's nothing fancy but the sites are roomy and the utilities are well located and in good condition. There are mountain views in the distance. The owners are pleasant and helpful. There is easy access for big rigs in most sites. They have both tent & RV sites. We had a pleasant stay here and would return.

Large heavily wooded sites with close access to a hiking trail along a beautiful mountain river. Most sites are suitable for big rigs. The bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean for the heavy use they get. This is a busy park, and there are likely to be lines at check in and at the dump station. You can walk to the Lake Louise Townsite. There are hiking trails along the river that start from the campgrounds but some were closed due to bear activity. If at all possible it would be a good idea to have reservations if visiting in July or August. They do keep a few sites available for 1st come, 1st serve. The campground was completely full every night we were there. We really enjoyed this area and campground and stayed 7 days.

We had a great mountain view site. Our site was large. We are 54 feet long and had room to spare front and back. Parking is basically along the side of the road with an electric hookup. The bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean for the heavy use they get. This is a busy park, and there are likely to be lines at check in and at the dump station. You can walk to Banff or there is a bus that comes by the campground about every hour. There are hiking trails that start from the campgrounds. We were lucky to get a site without reservations in August, but if at all possible it would be a good idea to have reservations if visiting in July or August. They do keep a few sites available for 1st come, 1st serve. The campground was completely full every night we were there. Not all sites are created equal, ask for a site on the outer perimeter if available.

Very clean & well run. The rules are strictly enforced. 1 hour free WI-FI; after that you have to pay Tengo. The attendant guided us to our site and helped us back in. The bathrooms were very clean. The sites were well kept, watered and had lush green grass. The utilities were well located and in good condition. The park had key card security with a gate. There is a public park and river across the street with a walking trail along the river. A very nice RV park but not a place to party.

We stayed here 3 days when our truck broke down. It was a friendly park with a friendly and helpful part time attendant. The park is pretty basic, a parking spot with full hookups and showers and a bathroom. It is operated by the city park department. Sites were quite close together but the park was no way near full during peak season. There is a small store a block away with a good selection of food, ice and supplies. Our Verizon phones and MiFi worked well. This would be a good low cost stopover. We will stay here again. Some of the sites are suitable for big rigs. A few of the sites are shaded but most are open. All sites are back In's. Tents are permitted.

This park is improved from last year. There is new crushed rock on the parking pads so the mud and dirt is not as bad as in the past. The bathrooms were clean, they were not last year. Office staff were friendly and competent. The best thing about this park is that it is just a few blocks from the entrance from Teddy Roosevelt National Park. Be sure you get a site long enough for your rig, some are very short and it is difficult to park your tow. Wi-Fi worked sometimes but not during peak hours. There is a park for kids nearby with a pool and other attractions but it does cost extra to use. It is also very close to the attractions in the town of Medora. We drove the National Park Loop in the evening and saw a huge amount of wildlife close up.

This is a great stop for a night or two. The sites are deep and back up to large Cottonwood trees. It is next door to a rest area and a city park and there is a walking trail along the river. There are 30 & 50 amp full hookups that are newer and are in good condition. Plenty of room for big rigs if you can back in. We did not see any rest rooms, you may have to be self contained. The park was clean and quiet, a few trains in the distance. The Wi-Fi worked well. Check in was fast and friendly and we were able to pick our site. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Office staff were very pleasant, and after we registered we were escorted to our site by following a golf cart. The park was clean & well maintained. The bathrooms in the rally building were especially nice. The bathrooms, showers, & laundry were clean. The swimming pool was good sized and clean, but the water was a bit cold. There are sites for most any rig from tents to 40 footers or more. There are some very private tent sites. There are walking trails through the woods. Our site was level and the utilities worked as they should. The WI-FI worked but was slow. They have a small camp store with reasonable prices.

This is another beautiful Oregon State Park. The sites are large with many trees and shrubs. The parking pads are asphalt, large and level and the electric and water hookups well located. The bathrooms and showers are very clean. There is a hiking trail along a small river. This park is 1st come, 1st serve for campsites but they have a couple of Tee Pees that can be reserved. You pick a campsite then self register. This park was being cared for by a hard working camp host couple as the rangers were spending most of their time opening a new state park nearby. The camp hosts were friendly and were doing a great job. The only negative we found is that the park is located near the road and there is traffic noise.

This park is an oasis on an island in the high desert area of Washington. It is located on a large island accessed by a bridge. It has many trees and grass when the surrounding area is quite barren. It is a COE park but management is contracted out so there are no discounts for the Golden Age pass, but $28.00 is still a good deal for a full hook up, drive through site. Sites were large, on asphalt and near level. Hookups were in good condition and well located. Bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean. There are fishing docks and a boat launch. There are also a couple of new camper cabins. The lady at the office was pleasant and accommodated our request for a shady site. There is no cable TV or Wi-Fi but our Verizon Mi-Fi worked great. We enjoyed our short stay and would come back.

The owner is friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The utilities worked and were properly located. The parking was on gravel with some grass. There were some nice back in sites on the river with water and electric. There were several sites that would work for big rigs. While we were here, the owner was working on improvements and painting the main building. The park is old and not in a pretty part of town but it is a good, friendly and clean place to stop near Yellowstone Park. We would not hesitate to return.

This rate was for 2 people in a water and electric site. The owners were super friendly and helpful, they even escorted us to our site and made sure we could reach the hookups. The owners brought a free local newspaper to our site. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were very clean and nicely decorated and were checked often for supplies and cleanliness. Sites were gravel and level with some grass between sites, our site was roomy. There are many sites that would accommodate big rigs. The cable TV worked well with many channels and the Wi-Fi was strong. There were quite a few large trees in the park. The swimming pool was closed as it was the off season. The only negative was that there was a gravel stock piling business close by and a lot of dump trucks were going by, maybe our timing was bad and this isn't an every day thing? This is the nicest park we found in this area and we would not hesitate to return.

Basic RV parking at a low price, we paid $20.00 for full hookups & 30 amp power. There are long pull through sites plenty large for big rigs. Easy hookups well located. Not much for trees, it's mostly open at the top of a hill with a nice view but windy today. Check in is at the motel. No showers or bathrooms but you may be able to use those at the motel, we didn't ask. They let us pick out site then check in. Sites are gravel and close to level, good amount of space between sites. No fire rings, most sites have picnic tables. It is about 4 blocks off of interstate 94 so there is some traffic noise. 4 bars on our Verizon MiFi. This is not fancy but a great bargain for a few nights. We would stop again.

Another Great Oregon State Park. The restrooms and showers were clean and in good condition. The sites were shaded and spacious. Our site was clean and raked when we arrived. We had a level asphalt parking pad. Many of the sites are suitable for big rigs. There were many sites with water and electric but no sewer hookups. There is a dump station. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful and took pride in helping keep the park looking nice. The lake is not great when the water is low. The boat landing, picnic area and beach is a few miles away at the day use area. There were quite a few hiking trails that started on site. We have liked every Oregon State Park we stayed at and this one is no exception.

The setting is beautiful. It is in a forest of huge Redwoods. Check in was fast and friendly. She even provided maps and info for local attractions. The bathrooms and showers were clean and heated and there was a nice clean laundry area. The cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well. Our site was all dirt but level and freshly raked when we arrived. There are many sites that will accommodate big rigs. The utilities looked old but worked fine. Most sites are large and about 1/2 had good privacy. Ask for a site away from the road although even near the road noise is not bad. There is a nice play ground area for kids. They give a Good Sam discount. Ice and firewood is expensive. Their sign is difficult to read coming from north to south. It is after the bridge and before the KOA.

This park is clean, quiet, friendly & well kept. The cable TV and WI-FI worked perfectly. The full hookups were well placed and in good condition. The showers, laundry and restrooms were very clean. There is a large grassy area with flowers and herbs by the river for all to enjoy. There are benches and patio furniture by the river also. The park is well lit and only about 1/2 mile to town and the harbor. The on site owners are very friendly and helpful. This park is small so you may need reservations. The sites are small but not tight, there is room for slides and awnings. A great quiet and friendly place, we extended our stay.

This is a very nice Oregon State park. There are many deep sites for big rigs, all have water and electric. Most sites have good privacy and many trees and vegetation. This park is 1st come, 1st serve with no reservations taken. We could not see our neighbors from our site, #53. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Our site was clean and level, it had a paved driveway and parking pad. The trail to the beach was steep but very pretty, you could walk or drive to the beach. Nearby there are tours of the Cape Blanco Lighthouse and another of a historic home. Both were good tours with an outstanding job by the hosts. Note: The dump station is out of service so there is no dump station here.

This is a very nice Oregon State park. There are many deep sites for big rigs, all have water and electric and some have full hookups. There are 3 loops, A & B loops generally have more trees and privacy. We could not see our neighbors from our site, B-1. C loop is nice too but there is less vegetation between sites for privacy. The park put on programs nearly every day. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Our site was freshly raked and spotless when we arrived. The trail to the beach was 3/4 mile and difficult due to soft beach sand on the whole trail but there are easy beach accesses that you can drive to close by. The town of Bandon has a great waterfront park and docks and very good crabbing. The park hosts did a wonderful job here.

Not fancy but a very pleasant and quiet place to park for a few days or longer. The sites are large and most are quite private with trees or bushes between the sites. The full hookups all worked well and the cable TV and Wi-Fi worked very good. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were clean. You check in at store at the entrance. The staff were friendly and helpful. The store is well stocked. There is a beach access about 3 blocks away. The beach is large and sandy. They are also near the north jetty and old town Florence. The rate we paid reflects a Good Sam discount. We really enjoyed our time here.

This park is nicely maintained. The full utility hookups were well located and were in good condition. The cable TV and Wi-Fi both worked very well. The bathrooms and laundry were very clean. There was a book and magazine exchange in the office. The store was well stocked. The sites were not real large but there was plenty of room for slides. Some of the larger rigs had to park their toad or tow vehicle by the bathrooms or office because the sites were not very long but there are many sites that will fit a 40 footer in this manner. There are no tents permitted. The park has ocean front, ocean view and forest sites available. We were disappointed at first that we could not get on the ocean as we did not have advance reservations but the forest sites were much warmer and less windy and also cost much less than an ocean front sites. It was about a 2 block walk to the beach from the forest sites. The beach was wide, sandy and clean. We would stay here again if we are ever back in this area. The price listed is for a full hookup site in the forest area with a Good Sam discount.

We stayed in the upper section, the bathrooms and laundry were like new and clean. The washers and dryers only cost $1.00. You have to sign up for a time slot to use them. The utility hookups worked well. If you have slides on both sides some sites will be a tight fit. The lower section has many nice bay view sites. Crabbing was very good while we were there with many people bringing in their limits. The park will steam them for you for $7.00 a dozen. The park was well taken care of and the grass nicely trimmed. The only negatives were that some sites were small and a bit difficult to get into if there are cars parked at nearby sites. There were a couple of 40 footers here but they had to park their toads near the restrooms. Also the office hours were limited, but there were good instructions for late check-ins and you could just pick an unreserved spot and check in the next morning. Be sure to go to the beach at Oceanside and walk through the cave in the huge cliff to the most beautiful secluded beach we have ever seen. We would stay here again.

This park is well groomed, the grass is trimmed and it is nicely landscaped with shrubs and flowers. The bathrooms, showers and laundry was very clean. The hookups were well located and in good condition. The cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well. There are tent sites and full hookup RV sites. Some of the RV sites may be a little hard to back into but ours was fine. The park is located behind a general and grocery store that is well stocked and has reasonable prices. The store and office staff were friendly and helpful. The owner was on site and often was working on the grounds. The only negative was that it was located on busy highway 101 and there was quite a bit of highway noise. As far as I know they do not have a web site.

This is the nicest park we have found in this area. It is also very busy, and we were only able to get in for one night as we did not have advance reservations. The laundry was clean, and everything worked well. The bathrooms were reasonably clean but not spotless, but then they were very busy. The sites are roomy and well designed to get into easily. Most sites were nicely wooded and had a fire ring and picnic table. The full hookups were well located for easy access. There was an indoor pool and hot tub. The WI-FI worked well at our site. There was a nice camp store, and the office people were friendly. This was one of the nicer parks we have encountered on our 7 week tour of the northwest.

This park is owned and managed by a very friendly and energetic young couple. They keep the bathrooms and showers clean and the grounds well groomed. We were guided to our site and offered help backing in. There is a short trail to the bay where you can wade, swim, dig for clams or just relax and watch the tide go in and out. There is a playground, go kart bikes and more. There are ice cream socials and other planned activities for kids on the weekends. The camp store is well stocked and has fair prices. Most sites are wooded. There were some sites for big rigs and many tent sites as well. The Kamper Kabins looked nice and most were occupied. This park is also pet friendly & has a large grassy pet walk area. Our site was level. The water and electric worked fine. The park Wi-Fi worked sometimes and sometimes it did not.

This is a very basic park, there are 30 amp hookups and water, nothing more. The bathrooms and showers were old but reasonably clean. You have to put quarters in the showers. Campfires are not allowed. Some of the sites are close together. It is in a quiet peaceful area. The lake and setting is beautiful and there are some beautiful small waterfalls in the area. Our site was about 100 feet from the worlds largest Spruce tree. This is a good spot to explore this scenic rain forest area. There is a very nice and clean laundry by the office and store. I don't think they take reservations, just 1st come 1st serve.

The beach here is a 10. The sites were roomy and most were suitable for big rigs. The power and hookups were good. The bathrooms and showers were OK, not super clean. There is only 1 washer and dryer but they are free to paid campers. You need to get a separate key card for the laundry. The park does not have much if anything for rules. Dogs from the town run free here and dogs are allowed on the beach and can run free there too. You can have fires on the beach but the sign says a permit is required. Tent campers are allowed to set up on the beach too. This is a remote area and there is not much in town. Second, Third and Rialto beaches are also nearby. Rialto beach is great and a hike to Hole in the Wall is worth it. Cell service is poor to none at all. Our Verizon MiFi worked when it was cloudy and in the mornings. Not fancy but if you like beaches it is a great place.

This is a great park if you have kids, there is so much for them to do. There is a swimming pool, a playground, mini golf, go kart bikes and more. They also have hay rides, ice cream socials and many more planned activities for kids. The camp store is well stocked and has fair prices. The bath rooms & showers were OK. They were heavily used as we were there over a busy weekend. Most sites were wooded. There were some sites for big rigs and many tent sites as well. The Kamper Kabins looked nice and most were occupied. This park is also pet friendly & even has a pet coral to put your pet in while you go in the store or bathrooms. This is a good close location to base when exploring the Hurricane Ridge area of Olympic National Park and the many other attractions in the area. Our site required some blocks for leveling. The water and electric worked fine. The staff were friendly and helpful. The park showed a bit of wear & tear from heavy use but was overall very nice. If you are a senior camper looking for quiet and relaxing you may not want to come here on a summer weekend but then we had a great time just watching all the kids have so much fun.

Very clean and well kept. Good power and cable TV. Nice clean crushed rock sites with patios. The bathrooms, laundry and showers were very clean. If you can use a back in site ask for a creek side site and you will be lulled to sleep by a babbling mountain stream. Site 13 is the best, then site number 5. Sites 1 - 4 are close to the road and may have more road noise. Ocean, beach and dock access is across the road. There is also a great spa and clubhouse and a place to BBQ with gas grills provided. Office staff were friendly and helpful. This is a very well run place.

This is a very nice, quiet, family run RV Park. The sites are large and grassy. There are many large fir trees. Some sites have mountain views. There are picnic tables & fire rings. Most sites are 30 amp with water. They only have a few full hookup sites but there is a dump station. They sell fire wood and ice but not much else. The owners and manager are very nice and take time to visit with you. It is located near the entrance roads to both MT Rainier National Park and MT Saint Helens National Monument. The bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean and there is a washer and dryer. This is not a fancy resort type park but is a very relaxing place to stay while exploring the area. There is no web site that I could find but the address is 107 Young Rd. just off highway 12 about 2 miles east of Randle WA. Watch carefully for the signs as they are a little difficult to see from highway 12. They share a driveway with their horse blanket shop and that is where you turn in. They are also a Passport America Park. The regular rate for RV's is $25.00. They do not take credit cards, we paid by cash. We stayed a little longer than we planned and would return in the future.

This is a very nice campground right on the Yakima River. There are quite a few river front sites so just ask if you like to relax and watch the river flow by. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were clean. Washers cost $1.75 and dryers $1.25. There is a nice pool and also a shallow kiddie pool. There is also a play ground, a volley ball net, a game room and a TV room. There were lots of families with kids here. There is good cable TV at the RV sites, our power and Wi-Fi was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are a limited number of full hookup sites. There was moderate traffic noise. We enjoyed our short time here and would come back.

This would clearly be a 10 if it were not for the freeway noise. Ask for a site away from the freeway, it's not bad at all at the opposite end of the park. The bathrooms, laundry and showers were clean and spacious. The indoor pool and spa very nice. The gathering room with fireplace was fabulous. Wi-Fi was only available in and near the clubhouse. Sites were crushed rock with cement patios. Hookups were in good shape and well located. Staff were busy but friendly. We were very happy and would return, but be sure to ask for a site away from the freeway. You may need reservations during peak summer months as the park was nearly full when we were here.

This is a very nice park with very nice & helpful staff. Our site was level and shaded. Our Wi-Fi worked well. The pool was clean and warm, the bathroom, showers and laundry were very clean. The prices in the small camp store were very reasonable. The park was nicely landscaped with flowers, vines and trees. There was a bird feeding station with many birds in the park. There was no traffic noise. This was a nice green oasis in a somewhat barren part of Montana. We really enjoyed this park and will stop again on our way back from the west coast.

Great location right by the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and near the attractions of downtown Medora. Office staff were friendly and helpful. About 3/4 of the sites were shaded. There were nice views of the bluffs and badlands. The power was good. Wi-Fi was slow to not at all, but Mi-Fi signal was very fast here. The bathrooms and showers were OK, not great. The sites were muddy and full of pot holes. The roads were rough with many mud holes. The grass was tall and unkept. The store was OK. There were piles of junk near the back of the park. Other than a great location this park was nothing special. We liked the other park in town better.

The sites are nice and large, each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The park is mostly heavily wooded. There is a nice clear stream and there are canoes and inner tubes available. The roads and pads are all gravel, watch out for the speed bumps. There is a clean heated swimming pool. There also is a camp store with reasonable prices, a game and recreation room. There is a nice patio with a fire ring overlooking the stream. The bathrooms and laundry were very clean. The Wi-Fi worked well at our site. The staff were friendly and made coffee for our group. The park was about 75% seasonal campers but that was not a problem. This park is located far enough away from the highway so that it was very quiet and peaceful. It was a very pleasant stay and we would return.

This is a new RV park/resort. All sites have full hookups, 30 and 50 amp power, cable TV and Strong Wi-Fi. The sites are very large and suitable for big rigs. The roads are wide and paved and the sites have fire rings and cement patios. There is a very large clubhouse with wide screen televisions, a full kitchen for guest use, game tables and comfy furniture and an incredible fitness center. There is also a large outside patio overlooking a nice pond. The grounds and clubhouse are clean and well kept. Pets are welcome if picked up after. The managers are friendly and helpful. The area has many lakes, dining and shopping choices. This is an ideal spot for snowbirds spending the summer months up north. We were here with our RV Club and were treated like royalty. This being a new park it is not yet 100% completed but the pool and hot tub are under construction and expected to be done soon, some landscaping is also still in progress. The $30.00 dollar rate was the off season group rate but the regular rates are reasonable. This is without question the nicest park in the area and will be even better when completed. Lots are available to rent or purchase. There are no tents permitted and rigs over 10 years old must be in good condition.

The view and setting here was a 10. The park is nearly surrounded by water with great views and many open areas to watch the harbor & the sunset. The bathrooms & showers were clean & modern. The office staff were friendly & helpful. Many of the sites are suitable for big rigs. There were some very large & private tent sites. We were able to get a fair WIFI signal but it may have come from outside of the park. My only complaint is that the pull through sites are very narrow, so narrow that there was no room to put out our awning. This was offset by the fact that there is open area in the front so even with a narrow site there is still a great view to the front. We enjoyed our time here and would come back.

The setting and the view is a 10. There is a great ocean view and easy access to the beach for swimming, beach walking and just relaxing and listening to the waves. The bathrooms and showers are clean and modern. There is only 1 shower which can result in a wait to use the shower. The office staff and work campers were friendly and helpful. The laundry room was adequate. The grounds were well kept. The access roads and parking pads were gravel and reasonably level. The speed bumps were excessive. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well. There are no sewer hookups but free pump out service is offered if you stay a week or more. Many sites are suitable for big rigs. The negatives are that 2 activities that were offered and advertised were canceled with short notice and no explanation. Only 1 shower for men and 1 for women for the entire campground. I thought it was rude that they decided to mow the campground on a Saturday afternoon on the busy Labor Day weekend when campers were visiting and relaxing and couldn't hear each other over the roar of the lawn mower. The prices are high considering the limited amenities and canceled activities. If you have a dog be sure it can read as there are signs posted that, "Dogs can't go here." The great view and ocean front setting made it a very pleasant stay but if the owner was more considerate it would have been even better.

This is a small quiet campground. The lawns and trails are meticulously groomed. The sites are good sized. There are great views of an ocean bay. There are several benches and a swing at the water front to view the water, sunrises and sunsets. The owners are friendly and helpful. The owner will even cook a lobster for you and bring it to your site at the time you specify. Ice and wood are reasonably priced. There is a free book exchange at the office. The owners even put out their surplus garden produce free to whoever could use it. Bathrooms and showers older but clean. 1 washer and dryer in laundry. Some very nice private tent sites. There is also room for big rigs. Very relaxing and low key. We stayed 3 days and would come back again if in this area.

Nicest city park campground we have stayed at, Thanks to the great hosts that are helpful & friendly and keep the grass groomed like a golf course. Large deep sites with level asphalt parking pads. Plenty of room for big rigs. The park adjoins a paved hiking and biking trail along the river. You can walk to downtown & McDonalds. There is also an ATV trail nearby. The picnic tables could use a coat of paint but other than that everything was great.

This is probably one of the nicest parks in the Rio Grande Valley. The lots are all privately owned but many people own more than one lot and rent them out or rent out their lot while they are away. The office maintains a list of lots available for rent and it is also on the website. You have to contact the lot owner directly to rent a lot. The daily rate I listed is for a monthly stay and most owners prefer to rent for long term stays. The park is nicely landscaped with many Palm Trees, Citrus Trees, shrubs and flowers. The lots are large with plenty of room for big rigs. The park is a mix of RV sites, park models, mobile homes and homes. The park is fenced and gated with a key card required for entry. There is security on duty at night. The swimming pool and hot tub is kept clean and warm. The recreation hall has numerous activities 7 days a week during the winter months. The office and maintenance staff are friendly and helpful and everything is well kept. All lots have full hookups and cement patios. The park is located far enough from the expressway so that there is no road noise. This is an over 55 park so one person must be over 55, children are not permitted except to visit for not more than 30 days a year. This park is only 3 miles from the World Birding Center. There is easy access to many miles of paved biking trails and is close to many shopping, dining & entertainment opportunities. There are also numerous medical facilities close by. This is a great park with very friendly people, we will definitely be back.

The price reflects the Good Sam discount and is for a full hookup, pull through site. The person who checked us in was friendly and helpful and guided us to our site. The hookups were well located and in good condition. The bathrooms and showers were exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. Our site was level and very roomy with grass and shade. There was a picnic table but no fire ring. There is a community fire ring by a small pond. The access roads were gravel but in good condition. There are several sites suitable for big rigs. This park is near the freeway but was reasonably quiet. The outdoor area could be a little neater, it was slightly unkempt but not bad. This is a pretty small basic park but we were very happy here and would stay here again. Call for directions because your GPS will not bring you here. My Air Card worked well here.

The price reflects the Good Sam discount and is for a full hookup, pull-through, deluxe site. The office staff were friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site and guided in. The hookups were well located and in good condition. The store was well stocked with camping supplies, gifts and basic food items. The bathrooms and showers were older but clean. The laundry had plenty of machines and was clean but the washers cost $3.00 per load. Our site was level but very narrow. There was not enough room to extend our awning. There was a picnic table but no fire ring. Only the premium sites had fire rings. The access roods were gravel but in good condition. There are quite a few sites suitable for big rigs, they are long enough but very narrow. The miniature golf course was in rough shape. This park is only a few blocks to the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park and it is an easy walk to town for shopping and dining. This park is great for it’s convenient location, but as a RV park is nothing special.

This park is centrally located in Yellowstone National Park and has full hookups. It is the only park with full hookups in this area. Only hard sided rigs are allowed here, no tent trailers or hybrids. This is due to the large number of bears in this area. The access roads are tarred but have a few pot holes. The sites are small and short, we had difficulty getting into our site but after some maneuvering were able to get situated 16 inches from the large motorhome behind us, I measured. There was no room to extend our awning due to a very close tree. We have 2 slides on the same side and there was plenty of room for the slides. We did have a nice view of a very thick forest and plenty of room for our 2 lawn chairs and a small table. The bathrooms were clean. The showers were a long walk to the office area and cost $3.25 so you are better off to shower in your rig. There is a well stocked store, gift shop, and snack bar about 6 blocks away. There is also a gas station with diesel fuel and propane. There are no picnic tables. Campfires are not allowed. The park had a sewer smell in the mornings. The water pressure can get very high, up to 100 PSI so bring a pressure reducer for your water hookup. This park is very busy due to the great location and you will likely need reservations to get in. We arrived by noon on September 8th and the park was completely full. There were a few 40-foot rigs here, they fit but it was a tight fit. Our stay here was pleasant, we were aware of the shortcomings of the park but were happy to get a site in this great location.

We stayed at this park for 5 days: it is perfectly located between Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Tetons National Park. The access road is paved but watch out for the huge speed bumps. The person at check-in was friendly and helpful and explained the rules of camping in bear country and that the rules were strictly enforced. Our site was very roomy with many trees. It had full hookups but be aware that the electric is only 20 amps and you will need a 20 amp adapter. Most sewer hookups are 8 to 10 inches above the ground so you will need support or a ramp for your sewer hose. Sites have a picnic table and a fire ring. The interior roads are dirt with a few pot holes and can be dusty. There are quite a few sites that could handle big rigs. The bathrooms and showers were old but reasonably clean. There was a laundry with 6 washers and 8 dryers. The washers and dryers each cost $2.00 a load. The store was well stocked and there was gasoline and diesel fuel available. The lodge and restaurant looked very nice but we did not eat there. There are paths to the Snake River; it is about 3 blocks away. There is reportedly good fishing in the river and it looked swimable when the water is low. We very much enjoyed out stay at this park, it is not fancy and it can be dusty when dry, but the great location makes up for it. I am not aware of any other camping in this area with hookups. If you don’t need hookups there are several free national forest campgrounds nearby on Grassy Lake Road. The big negative here is the cost of $50.00 per night plus tax payable in full, in advance. I think the tent sites are $26.00. We would stay here again mostly for the great location. Be sure to visit the Jenny Lake area in the Grand Tetons, drive the one way road and stop at the Jenny Lake overlook: the most scenic area of the Grand Tetons in my opinion.

This is a first class RV Park located a few blocks from the heart of the town of West Yellowstone and the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The price listed reflects a 10% Good Sam Discount and is for a full hookup, back-in site. The staff at check-in was friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable of the area. The utilities were well laid out and in new condition. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were all very clean, in good condition and more than adequate in number. We had a cement patio with a nearly new picnic table and a crushed rock parking pad. The sites are not overly large but there is room for your slides and awning and room to park on site. The streets are fairly wide and paved. There are plenty of big rig sites in this park. The park is pet friendly with designated dog walk areas. There is free coffee and hot drinks at the office every morning. The store is clean and well stocked with food, RV supplies and gift items. Be aware there are no campfires allowed in the town of West Yellowstone and if you wish to BBQ on the vinyl picnic table you will have to borrow a protective pad from the office. The town is very nice and clean with many dining and shopping choices and 2 small grocery stores. I rate this park a 10 without hesitation.

The office person here was friendly and helpful. He even led us to our site and guided us in. We had a large wooded pull through with lots of trees and grass. Our site was level. The bathrooms and showers were old but clean. There was a nice walking trail to the creek. They have a large dance hall on site and have nightly square dances, but you are welcome to stay here even if you are not a square dancer. We were invited to come watch the dancers. The cost is very low and this is a great place to stay while you explore the area. We had electric and water hookups but no sewer as they were all taken. There is a good dump station. This park is not fancy but is very pleasant and friendly. We would stay here again.

The manager here was friendly and helpful. The park was spotless clean. The bathrooms and showers were comparable to a fine hotel. Most sites were riverside and close to the water. This park is well managed and well kept. I wish they were all this nice. The only reason I did not rate it a 10 is because of the railroad siding across the back of the park. Be sure to check the directions on the web site as it is a little tricky to find the entrance. You have to go through the Orofino Building Supply parking lot to get to the park entrance.

The sites at this park were roomy and many had shade trees. There were many waterfront sites. The tent sites were very nice. The host at the check-in station was friendly and helpful. They had a nice swimming beach. There were several bathrooms that were reasonably clean but not spotless. There was a good boat launch and several docks so you could tie up your boat near your site. Our site was level and the hookups were well located. There were a few negatives. It cost 50 cents to get 3 minutes of hot water for a shower. They over watered the grass and some sites became muddy. Overall we were happy with our stay here and would recommend this campground to others.

This park will give a Good Sam discount if you ask. This RV park is neat and well kept with large sites with green grass and trees between them. The sites are level. The sites are plenty large for big rigs. The hookups are in good condition and well located. Each site has a picnic table and an elevated grill. There are also 4 or 5 tent sites. There is a dog walking area. There is no Wi-Fi but our air card worked well here. There is good TV reception in the area. The park is located behind a Shell gas station and convenience store. Office and check in is at the gas station. The store has a basic stock of soft drinks, groceries, beer and liquor. They have very good popcorn, give it a try with Happy Hour. It was nice to be able to fill up our diesel here. You pay a $5.00 deposit for a key to the showers and rest rooms: OK by me as it keeps non-Rvers out. There is not a lot to do at the park but it is very convenient for exploring nearby towns. The only negative is there is only 1 washer and 1 dryer in the laundry. If possible: request the back row, sites 16~25. It is further from the road and quieter and also has a wooded view of the back of the park. They water the grass at night so put your lawn chairs away at night.

We paid $27.00 a night for full hookups. This was with a Good Sam discount and had to be paid by cash or check for the discount. We really enjoyed this campground. The sites were roomy and the hookups were adequate and well located. Many of the tent sites were very private and roomy. We camped under huge Cedar trees and had plenty of shade. There were many families with children camped here and there is a lot for the children to do. The swimming hole was most popular. There was also playground equipment, mini-golf, fishing and wading and much more. The restrooms and showers were clean but not spotless. There is a small laundry with 3 washers and 3 dryers. Most sites had fire rings and picnic tables. The office staff were friendly and helpful. There is a small camp store and ice and firewood is also available. This park is deep in a valley: so there is no TV reception, your cell phone won't work and our air card did not get a signal. The road in is about 2 miles of well maintained gravel but all down grade with 2 hair-pin turns and single lane with many areas not wide enough to meet another car or RV. The grade is easily doable in low gear. Motor homes over 36 foot are advised to unhook their tow car and drive it down separately. As a flatlander this road made me nervous but it was well worth it when we got to the campground. The name has "Resort" in it. I would not classify this as a resort but just a good old fashioned fun campground. We stayed 5 days and were glad we did. Had a good time and really enjoyed the scenery.

Wow!!! In 40 years of camping & RVing this is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in. Every thing as clean as can be, & everyone as friendly as can be. The swimming pool was clean & heated to a nice warm usable temperature. There were 2 hot tubs. The store is well stocked, and store prices are more reasonable than most. Bags of ice were only $1.50, and a nice bundle of wood was $4.95. There is an ice cream parlor with fair prices, and the owner grills ribs and chicken along with sides every night for fair price. There is a game room and an adult lounge with a TV. The WI-FI at our site worked well. Our site was perfectly level. There are many sites suitable for big rigs. The tent sites are large and have good privacy. The many Kamper Kabins were very nice, too. The park is conveniently located just a few miles to the west entrance of Glacier National Park. The rate we paid was for full hookups and reflects the KOA Value Card discount. I would definitely recommend this park to others.

This park is very convenient to Glacier National Park and only a mile from the east park entrance & Going to the Sun Road. The rate of $50.00 was for full hookups with the KOA Value Card discount. The power, water & sewer hookups were in good condition and conveniently located. The power was strong. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Most of the staff were foreign students. The store was very well stocked, but prices were high. Our site was level and had great mountain views all around. Most sites for RV's are pull throughs. Sites have a fire pit and picnic table and plenty of room for slides on both sides. Sites have a crushed rock parking pad and nice grass. The swimming pool, spa & splash park are clean and well kept. This is great entertainment for the kids if the weather is warm enough. There are many well kept Kamper Kabins. Most of the tent sites are large and shaded with good privacy. Choose your tent site carefully if it looks like rain because some can get wet and muddy. There are small areas to access both the lake and river. The only negatives were that 2 of the washers in the laundry were out of order the whole 9 days that we were here. Also the urinal by the pool was out of order the same length of time. When the campground is full there are not enough toilets for morning use. The laundry was often tied up by employee use. The swimming pool water temp was too cold for us to use but it didn't seem to bother the younger folks. The WI-FI worked at our site maybe 60% of the time. When use was heavy it was very slow or did not work at all. Overall this was a very clean, friendly and pleasant place to stay, & we would recommend it to others.

The office person was friendly and helpful. She gave us info on attractions & dining in town and some discount coupons. The rate we paid was for water & electric, no sewer hookup as they were all taken. It also reflects the Good Sam discount. This is a small quiet park about 5 miles out of town. It is grassy & has a lot of trees. We had a very large shaded site but most of the full hookup sites are smaller & closer together. Our site was level, we are not sure if they all are. Most sites had picnic tables. The road is gravel and grass. It looks as if some of the sites could get muddy after a rain. The bathrooms and showers were older but clean. The laundry had 4 washers and 3 dryers all in good working order. The tent sites were very nice and roomy with grass and trees. The power and hookups were good. Quite a few of the sites are suitable for big rigs. There was free WI FI and it worked very well at our site. This was a quiet and relaxing park but nothing fancy. We were very happy with our 2 day stay here and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

This rate was for full hookups with the Good Sam discount. Cable TV is $2.00 a night extra. This RV Park is in a great location about 1-1/2 blocks to downtown Medora and 5 blocks to Teddy Roosevelt National Park. The hookups & power were good. The site sizes fairly narrow but plenty of space for your awning & more. Bathrooms & showers were reasonably clean but not spotless. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. We received a golf cart escort to our site and guidance in backing in. There are nice views of the buttes and Teddy Roosevelt National Park. The park store is well stocked. There is live music every night in season, mostly Country Western and Old Time music. The WI-FI worked well and the cable TV was very good. This was not a real fancy park but it was very friendly and down home. We were very happy with our 3 day stay here and would come back. Medora as a great old western town with quite a bit to see and do.

A very nice RV Park with just over 100 sites. Good Sam Discounts & Rally discounts are available. Most sites are suitable for big rigs with many pull through sites. The office staff were very friendly & helpful, we were escorted to our site. Sites were good sized and very close to level. There is good solid power & hookups. The park was clean & well kept with lots of flowers & trees. The bathrooms, showers & laundry were clean & everything worked. The few tent sites were very large & private. We did not use the pool but it was clean. The wireless internet worked well. I am using it to post this. The park is only a mile from a larger city with fine dining, shopping & good medical care. This is the nicest best cared for park we have stayed at this year & we would come back again.

This is a small RV Park located 3/4 of a mile North of Long Prairie MN on US Highway # 71. The sites are large and mostly shaded. There are some 50 amp full hookup sites, some 30 amp and some tent sites. There are many fruit trees and they advertise that campers are welcome to pick fruit in season for no extra charge. The campground was attractively landscaped with many trees, shrubs, and flowers. There is a large building that can be used for pot lucks or playing cards and games. The restrooms and showers were reasonably clean but not spotless. There would not be much for kids to do here but it is a great place for a stop over or for retired folks. They have a couple of community fire pits with free firewood. They have monthly and seasonal rates too but there was only one permanent RV. They do take credit cards. They have good discounts on monthly rates but no other discounts. The nearby town has a very good and low cost café called Mickeys in the old downtown area. We stayed here 4 days with our RV Club and were very happy with the campground. Big rigs will easily fit in most of the sites.

This is a snowbird park & many residents stay from 3 to 5 months. The monthly rate is reasonable, as little as $10.00 a day. Do not believe what it says on the web site. Much of what is advertised is only available on a few sites or not at all. The pool heater don't work properly & the pool is often too cold or too hot to use. The building & grounds maintenance is poor. The manager does not live on site and promises much that she does not deliver. Many of the electric hookups do not provide adequate power. The Wi-Fi does not work well. On the plus side the winter residents are very friendly & helpful & there are many organized activities all run by volunteers in the park. The RV and mobile homes that the park rents are dirty & in poor condition. The sites on 1st & 2nd streets are roomy but the sites in the pool area and Caliche Street are tiny with no place to park your RV or toad. There have been quite a few security problems & some thefts. We will not be back.

The name says it all. Fun Valley is truly a fun place for young & old. Trout fishing, trolley rides, horseback riding, bike rental, paddle boat rental. Hiking, tubing, mini golf, shuttle to regular golf, live music & entertainment. They also have a well stocked store, gift shop, gas station, snack bar, restaurant, game and activity buildings & much more. The food is very good and reasonably priced. WI-FI is available only near the office. The location is very scenic and is on the south fork of the Rio Grande River. There are also 18 well stocked trout ponds on the property. We came planning to stay 3 days and ended up staying 12 days. The nightly rate listed reflects a discount on stays of 5 days or more. The many older work campers were the friendliest & most helpful we have encountered anywhere. There are a few negatives, some electric sites are only 20 amp. & many of the sites get very muddy after rain.

This campground was a welcome find. There are very few campgrounds on this stretch of road. This is basically an overnight stop but there were a few long term RV's here, I think they were working in the area. There is no attendant on duty, you just pick a site and self register. Most, if not all the sites were drive through. Here's the best part, you only pay for what you use. Dry camping is only $8.00, electric only $10.00, electric and water $12.00, electric, water and sewer $14.00. The bath and shower house was old but clean and usable. There is a small swing set for kids but not much else. Sites were level and we did not have to unhook for an overnight stay. You will need to pay by cash or check. No credit cards and no one available to give change.

This is a large city park campground. There were about 100 sites with a separate area for tents. Most sites were shaded with very large trees. There were water & 30 amp electric hookups at all the RV sites and a dump station. There are a couple of large ponds in the park & quite a few people were fishing with good luck catching pan fish. Some of the sites were suitable for big rigs and most would handle at least 34 footers. The cost per night was only $13.50 for RV's, less for tents. There were areas to walk and there appeared to be a paved bike/walking trail across the road. We were very happy to find this pretty & low cost park. The only negative was that there were many geese in & near the ponds and you have to be careful where you walk near the ponds. The geese did not come in the campground. The park is located on US Highway Business 63 on the south side of town. This was a great park at a great price & we would stay here again.

This on site owner takes great pride in his campground. This campground has the cleanest bathrooms & showers we have ever seen. Sites are large & grassy & most are drive through. Plenty of room for big rigs here. There is a small lake with 2 paddle boats for free use. Since we camp here in the early season we really appreciate the heated activity room. We have camped here 3 years in a row with our local RV club & never noticed the voltage problem mentioned by a previous poster. The free Wi-Fi worked well. We will be back & recommend this park to others.

We really enjoyed this park located at the north side of Durango. We stayed here for a week in August. The restrooms, showers & laundry were very clean. The pool was heated & warm. The camp store was well stocked and open long hours. Most of the sites were shaded with large trees. Most sites were fairly short but we all fit, barely for the 40 footers. The tent sites were well kept, grassy & have a great view. The work camper staff were friendly & helpful. One even stopped by our site to visit awhile one afternoon. This park was conveniently located to explore Durango & the nearby mountains. We would stay here again.

We really enjoyed this park. It was clean & well kept. The work campers were very friendly and helpful, they even escorted us to our site. There is a swimming pool and an indoor and an outdoor hot tub. Free popcorn and coffee. The sites are nicely laid out and mostly crushed rock. The back in premium sites are very large and private. The location could not be better if you are visiting Mesa Verde National Park as the entrance is only about 1/2 mile away. We stayed here 3 days and were 100% happy.
