This park has been upgraded since 2009 and now is a very pleasant stay. They have dividers between sites and full service hookups. No TV but there is free Wi-Fi from the Rotary Club. The only down side for our week stay was the weather was extremely hot, arrived in 42 C and stayed about 38 C all week. Across the park one can cool off by plunging into the Kettle River. One down side is the numerous deer that are aggressive since its fawning season. Walking our dog, the deer actually were stalking us, thus we gave them a wide berth. Grand Forks downtown is one block away, people were very friendly, easy to shop and they had a farmers market on Tuesday and Friday. This is a nice clean town. If you want a little more beach, you can drive up the road to Christina Lake for swimming if you have kiddies.
This park has been let go. The resort is comprised of cabins and an RV park on a hill overlooking a nice valley. The RV section needs major work. Many of the electrical boxes are missing, the sites are not maintained, and pretty rough shape. We were assigned site 34 but it was too short for our 35 foot RV so we ended up in site 32. There are no sewer hookups. Sign in was lengthy and we were over charged. The front end clerk didn't know how to refund our visa so she did it with cash. Its a pity they don't upgrade the park, because the location is wonderful. Some money into infrastructure could make this RV park a real gem.
Stayed here in November 2013 on the way to Arizona and on the way back March 2014 (for one week each way). We love this park. It's not too big,but clean and folks are real friendly. The hedge between sites makes you feel like you have your own privacy. Dog area is not adequate. However we walked our Weimaraner across the road in the desert. Needles is expensive, so gas up in Bull Head City. It's about 70 cents cheaper per gallon. Needles rips you off on gas. Monthly rate here works out to about $13 a day so if you want to long term it here, it would be a great place to stay.
Good stop over park, good dog area, but poor Wi-Fi. Sites closer to I-5 could be noisy. Pull through sites were good for out 35 foot RV. This park loses marks due to high cost. We paid 48 with the Good Sam discount.
This is the best park in the Vernon area; however, as previous reviews suggest, it is very expensive. There is an additional charge of $5.35 per night for WiFi. They have a large area to walk your pets but they must be on a leach. An off leach area would be great. We ended up driving to Marshall Road off leash dog area by Vernon creek which this was fabulous for dogs. People are friendly here and would return again.
This is a diamond in the rough. Its currently being upgraded. Dirt roads, 25 full hookup spots, tenting spots available. Some full timers. Very pet friendly. Could be bad if it rained; they need to improve the roads. Hopefully this upgrading will be ongoing. This is rustic but has good potential. If not raining would stay here again.
This is the best private RV Park in Long Beach. We received a discounted rate for staying 10 days. This park is very well run. The folks are very friendly and helpful. We were close to the beach and my dog loved being let off her leash to run. Caution for wide people. If you have to use the men's restroom, the stalls are made for little people. I will definitely return to this park.
Stayed here 3 nights, was a little disappointed, expected more based on previous reviews. This is a good overnight spot. Its close to highway so lots of road noise. The owners appear to be upgrading the park, but it has a ways to go. We backed on to a good spot overlooking the Bulkley River so that was nice. They advertise their trail into Telkwa, but their part is overgrown and needs a good weedwacker to clear it to make it safe.
After traveling to Northern BC for 3 weeks, this is one of the best campgrounds we came across. The owners were friendly and take great pride in their park. We had a nice pull through. The grounds are well kept up. We definitely recommend travellers staying at this park and would stay here again.
Was told this is the best park in Prince George. If this is the best , I would hate to see the worst. This park needs work, for example the picnic tables need repair and paint. On arriving, there was no one to check us in. Found the host cleaning washrooms and was very rude, accused us of arriving too early. Then finally checking us in and had the reservation wrong for the couple we are traveling with. Accused them of being a day early. On observation, this elderly host couple seems too be over worked, maybe this is why she is so cranky. Won`t be back to this park.
I use this park as the bar for rating all other RV Parks. It exceeds all my expectations and have used this park now several times. It must be noted that this is not a destination spot for families with kids, although they have an indoor pool etc. We used this park as a 2 -3 day stop over. Some folks may not like not having a campfire but the resort folks are quick to set up a fire at the communal fire pits, including the wood free. Will always come back here when passing through Oregon.
Unfortunately we hit this park in real bad weather so it was hard to get a great feel for the park. They advertise being Pet friendly, yet they have no official dog area and are very strict about dogs being on leash. Saw the caretakers several times giving a bad time for dogs being off leash. I have no problems with strict dog rules however you must provide adequate dog run areas, their camp layout shows you a dog run at the lower lever, however full timers are parked and back on to this so called run area.
This park is big, beautiful and immaculate, however as previous folks suggest, there are flaws. First it is expensive. Second, dog owners need not apply, as earlier reviewers suggest, they are pretty (strict) about dogs. They charged me an extra $1 per day and only have a match stick for a dog run on the opposite side of the park. They have a sheet with many doggie rules: in other words don't bring your dog. We had to take our Weimaraner off site to a vacant lot across the road. Judging from the amount of doggie poo, lots of other folks are doing the same. Thirdly, they do not have free Wi-Fi. You sign up with a company: $4 per day. We and our friends found out their web site collects the money, but good luck surfing or doing your email. Phoned their support line and got a voice recording to take a message. Needless to say I left a harsh message about a refund. Finally got their tech support: they blamed management for not allowing proper infrastructure. Finally, our friends wanted to do their laundry, they had to purchase a laundry card for $20, it has a chip on it that tracks your usage. Plus there is a $3 charge for the card itself. Our friend used $6 worth and expected to get a refund for the difference. After a huge argument with management she got a partial refund. Just a few comments about Palm Springs. Being our first time here, as a tourist mecca, I expected it to be immaculate. I did not expect to see the amount of litter on the sides of the road and the poor condition of the roads.
I did not have high expectations for this site, it was to get us through a busy weekend. First site assigned was too short for my 35' RV. The manager agreed to give us a pull through at normally a back to back site. Found the folks very friendly. Surprisingly, very quiet at night.
Not a bad park, however, we were located in a narrow site on all asphalt area. Very close to other trailers, while there were other sites available with wide, concrete with hedge in between. A good park for using as a point to do day trips to Monterary, Carmel and Gilroy. Again a big beef, not much of a dog run for us folks with larger dogs. We need off leash areas for them to run. Wi-Fi was very slow.
As earlier folks reviewed, this is a large park and very busy. Yes, we ended up close to the main road and its busy in the day, but surprisingly it is quiet at night. This park looses points to me since its advertised as dog friendly yet there is no where to walk a large dog. California is strict on dogs off leash $145 fine, so most of us with large dogs are sneaking around in the dark on the beach. There is a dog park Elm street Park not too far away via car. The site we were on #104, was far from level, I had to get all my boards out etc., to get me close to level. Sites are narrow and not impressed by the next sites firepit under my window. The night he used it, my RV filled up with his smoke. Some sites on the other side are very nice and more spacious. You are paying for convenience of being on the beach side and close to town. If you can dry camp, the state park next door is real nice, we went for nice walks through this park and they have better beach access.
This is a new park in development. It looks nothing like the pictures on the Web site. It has significant work to be done to be completed. RV sites are being sold from 100,000 - 200,000 on the water. We stayed at a site but the electricity was via long extension cords. We did back on to the water which was nice. Whomever designed the RV sites needs a lesson on RV's. The sewers are too far forward and not in the middle. Better have an extension for your electrical cord too. Some sites have low hanging trees to catch your roof on. This will be a nice park someday if someone gets serious and puts money into it. The location is very good on Shuswap lake.
This is a small but nice campsite. It is a Municipal campground with walking distance to downtown. Lady checking us in was very friendly. Across the road from the campground is a nice walking trail that eventually leads to a dog park. One thing is that very close a 7X24 lumber mill is operational. You do get a wee bit of noise from this mill. We stayed 3 nights and had a good time in Merritt. Easy place to ride your bicycle in.
We stayed at this park just prior to its official opening on Memorial Day. The pool area, etc. was not open at this point. Overall a nice park, but still needs some work. We stayed during the week thus the park was not busy. Some previous folks are correct about the train; the park is close to the tracks and at times the train can be loud. We did get used to it so it didn't bug us much. Our site was very large and accommodated our 35 ' 5th wheel with no problem. According to the head office there is some problem with the local cable company thus no cable at this time. The campground is prewired for it. We were able to pull in 5 channels with our antenna. I can see this park being busy once it is open officially. I only gave a 7 rating, since there is still some work to be done. Not all sites had picnic tables or firepits, etc.. Grass still needs to be seeded properly, etc.
This was a one night stop-over and was a very nice surprise. Clean, friendly and a very beautiful park. We stopped here just before a major thunder storm. Once finished, the sun was out and it was a very nice campground. Would definitely recommend this campground.
This was an unexpected surprise. Up to now, our stays at the KOA's have been less than perfect. This KOA was different: clean, good pads, spacious and friendly staff. We had a very nice pull-through for our 5th wheel on a cement pad. Wow: no mud to tend with! Also had a supper at their small restaurant, the buffalo burger was excellent. This was a quick stop over for us, and I would recommend it.
This is a great campsite if you have children, however, for older folks with less tolerance for many kids... it's a zoo. We are moving to another campsite because of the noise and close campsites jammed together. As stated by another review, having to renew the wifi access every 24 hours seems customer unfriendly. The campsite is close to many activities.
If your staying close to Barrie , Ontario this campsite is a good overnight stay. Its well out on Highway 11. Sites needed some care, long grass etc. Check-in was interesting, one person was handling the pool, telephone calls, laundry room cleaning etc. Another counter person was needed. This is a gated park. Long stay campers pay $25 for card access, overnighters like us have to honk and hopefully the busy person hears you to open the gate. We were told no access after 7 PM. This trapped our travel companions outside with their groceries. They phoned the emergency number to be told to park outside the gate. This park served its purpose as an overnight stay for us.
This is a typical KOA with pool, kiddies area etc. Of the three campgrounds in the area, this is the best one, however for the money, I would expect the grounds to be better kept. Our site was adequate for our 5th wheel, but the picnic table was blocking the drive through, dog doo was in the unmowed grass. Site cleanup is not a priority here. Washrooms and laundry facility were clean. Check-in was quick and friendly. The write up for this site claims a shuttle to the Falls, this is not accurate, its actually local transit across from the KOA and you can buy a pass for $6.00. Again, this is the best campsite in the area, but for the money it should be 5 star not 3 star.
