After a revision of plans, we found our first choice, a WA State Park was filled to capacity, so we had to continue on. It was dusk when we arrived at this RV Park: having observed signs on the highway. It is located a couple of miles outside the town of Sprague on a small lake. A busy rail line runs along the far side of the lake (but we weren't bothered by the passing trains). The RV site itself was lovely: we parked on lush grass in a space close to the lake under lovely trees. It was a very lovely, pastoral scene. The primary reason for the relatively low score is that on the basis of value compared to cost, this park falls well short. The price (including state and local tax) was for electric and water only. If we wanted WiFi that would be $3 extra. If we wanted a sewer hook-up, that would be another $2. Showers are 75 cents "for water conservation." We thought the high charge might have been due to our late arrival (but no, reviews here showed it was the "normal rate"). The manager was somewhat brusque, but direct and to the point (ok by me). She did not say where the dump station was (I forgot to ask) and we did not find it when we left early the next morning. Finally: I marked "not clean" on the restrooms not so much that they were dirty but rather they were very old and unappealing. My wife described the facilities as "creepy" and I have to agree with her. I elected to skip my morning shower. I would not stay here again!

This was a delightful RV Park. Situated on a mountain slope, the individual camping spots are mostly cut into the forest of trees. "Pull through" sites appeared to be 'spots' along the cross roads that connect the uphill/downhill roads. These appear to have little privacy (though the picnic table, etc., is blocked by the RV) and water and electrical hookups are on the "wrong side" requiring longer than normal hoses/cords. Some of the "regular" sites are "Siamese" so one is back in, and the other is "front in." Water and power is placed on the dividing line between these paired sites. Our assigned site was sideways to the mountain slope: and did not have any part that was comfortably level (our small Roadtrek RV does not have leveling jacks). This was a minor inconvenience and (if warned) I'd have brought some boards to raise up the low side. The dump station was located near the office and was convenient to stop by on our in-out trips (we do not have a toad). This park, located near the entrance to Glacier National Park has a "stop" for the "red bus" tours (but you must reserve a tour in advance and arrange for them to stop for you.) We stayed 4 days and were very pleased with this park for its ambience and proximity to the national park. We did not use their WiFi, but our tablet got good connections to Verizon wireless (2 or 3 bars).

Typical of Washington State Parks, this one is reasonably up to date with a new-ish shower/toilet facility. Price reflects add-on for online reservation. Site was level and trees provided shade (but might cause problems for those wanting to use satellite dishes). Overall, we had a pleasant overnight stay. While this park is on the edge of Spokane, it is located in a lovely area along the Spokane River. It's some distance from Interstate 90 along a narrow 2-lane road that passes a sewage treatment plant (but there were no odors or noise). There was no ranger on duty at the gate when we arrived, but we were able to follow the procedure to register. It was a simple process as we had printed our online receipt and had the necessary number to fill in on the payment envelope to show we'd already paid. Also, as typical of WA State Parks, tokens were required for the shower, adding a couple of dollars cost. There was a token vending machine by the entry to the park.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. We spent two nights here. Unfortunately, the first night was extremely hot (even for the Sacramento Valley), and to make matters worse, an accident at the freeway offramp destroyed the power pole carrying the high voltage feed that served the area. The park lost power at 5:30 PM and it was not restored until about 4:00 AM the next morning. (This also affected its competitor down the street.) This is hardly the fault of the park management. Since temps were 112 degrees, those with generators were allowed to operate them all night long. Our second night was uneventful! We shifted from a "premium" site to an alternate closer to the showers. Staff was helpful and pleasant about making the change. Though the site was no longer a "premium" site, we were not offered a reduced charge (there was no cable TV at this site). Roads are wide and easy to maneuver on. Some are paved, but most are gravel as are the campsites. There was a nice "patio" of square concrete "stepping stones" at most of the sites and included a picnic table. Trees were plentiful, but oddly did not offer much shade. Showers/restrooms were clean. If we need to come to this area in the future, we'd stay at this park, though the value received for the amount paid was a bit unsatisfactory.

Oregon has some fabulous state parks -- and this is one of them. We arrived mid-week with no reservation and were able to get an electric-water (no sewer) site with no problem. As requested, we were given a site relatively near to the showers. Sites vary in size (larger RVs will have more limited choices), and many are screened from neighbors by strategic plantings of bushes. The park is far enough from the main highway that road noise is non-existant. Showers and restrooms were clean (aside from the usual sand seen in coastal locations). The showers are operated by pressing a button for a measured bit of water. My wife got 2 or 3 minutes, but I guess I had a defective timer, as I had to press the button about every 30 seconds -- a minor annoyance. Dump station was conveniently located and was clean and easy to maneuver into position. I will stay here again.

This is a very attractive park, with lawns, bushes, and a small lake. Many of the sites feature a wooden deck with a "camp fire" stove overlooking the lake. The deck also had a picnic table. Sites are screened and separated by a trellis with bushes and vines growing on them. There is a play area for kids on a large lawn in the center area of the park. I didn't notice exactly what play amenities were provided, though I did notice a horseshoe pit (and some kids playing). In the morning, there was a line for the shower (1 each, for men and women)... and when my turn came, the water was luke warm, but just adequate to do the task at hand. (I did not encounter this problem on a previous stay). Sand was ubiquitous in the restrooms and showers, due to the proximity of nearby beaches. I would stay here again.

I've stayed here previously, though it was several years ago. On the positive side, this is possibly the best RV park in the Ft. Bragg, CA area (I've tried a couple others). Most of the sites are screened with plantings, giving a high degree of privacy. We arrived without reservations, but were quickly accommodated with a site that was sized reasonably for our smallish class B. Minor frustration with the access road being a bit narrow, making a "clean" back in somewhat difficult. The primary annoyance is the use of a coin operated timer on the showers -- I understand that water is often expensive and subject to shortages in coastal areas, but it's inconvenient to have to stop mid-shower to feed in more coins. Add a couple dollars to the nightly rate to cover the showers! The showers and restrooms were clean, though sand tracked in from the beaches, etc., was present. We are likely to stay here again.

This park is located in a somewhat congested location along the waterfront of Bodega Bay. An adjacent "mobile home" community (not owned or managed by the park) gives a slightly tacky impression as you enter. Landscaping is minimal to non-existant. This is essentially a large mostly gravel lot with RV sites. Most sites have a nice brick raised fire ring and spacing isn't overly tight. The restroom and shower was relatively new and reasonably clean, though sand was tracked throughout (hard to avoid with beach/waterfront locations). Showers, were somewhat small. No serious complaint, but the "going rates" for the area seem high relative to the amenities provided. I would stay here again.

I've lost count of the number of times we've stayed here. It's a convenient middle of trip spot for a frequent route we take. The park is clean, with nice paved roads, concrete pads, lawns and attractive landscaping, picnic tables at most sites. The downside is that it is right next to I-5. Too bad that there's no sound wall or solid fence to moderate the noise. However, for summer-time the noise of the AC covers the traffic noise sufficiently that we get a good night's sleep. Restroom and showers are kept clean. The staff is pleasant and will offer helpful suggestions for dining within walking distance. (Office hours are a bit short, but late check in is handled with notes on the door for those with reservations and a list of vacant spots for non-reserved arrivals.) I expect to stay here again in the future.

This park has "full hook up" sites and another loop with water/electricity only sites. We stayed in a "premium" full hookup site, mostly because it was simply a nicer site. We did not have a reservation, but they're recommended after mid-May. The restrooms were somewhat worn, but typical of other state parks we've been in. They were clean. Showers require tokens (3 min fifty cents). However, they're a long walk from many of the sites and access is via meandering trails in the center of the camping loop. Sites on the inside of the loop connect to the trails, but sites on the outside must either cross an inside campsite (many were vacant during our stay) or walk even further along the access road. This park was very shady with lots of trees. Power boats in the lake were sometimes annoyingly loud. Otherwise, the ambiance was very pleasant. We would stay here again.

Staff was very pleasant and gave us a spot near the showers, as requested. Price reflects AAA/GS discount. The park features a small children's play area and has a laundry (which we didn't use). It is very close to I-90, so there is freeway noise, but a sound barrier seemed to help. Wi-Fi worked and was reasonably fast. Cable TV had about 30 channels. The spaces were smallish/close together and the general ambiance was OK, but I rated it a bit lower due to the impression of value received considering the cost. I'd stay here again, if necessary.

We did not have a reservation, but early in the season there were a few vacant spaces. This park's (RV) camping is arranged in two separate campgrounds. The "west" campground appeared rather dusty, with loose sand spread over most of the sites which were all close together. We found it rather unappealing. The "east" campground is about a mile further along the access road and was an amazing contrast, as it was beautiful, nicely landscaped with plenty of shade trees (but not so many to make satellite reception difficult). The restroom/shower building appeared to be no more than a couple of years old. This was the cleanest (and newest) of all Washington state park restrooms we've encountered. Showers were 50 cents for 3 minutes (instead of the tokens required at other state parks, this one used quarters). Sites were all paved and relatively level. Site length varied, so longer rigs might have trouble finding a usable spot. Reservations are recommended after mid-May. We would stay here again.

Rate does not include online reservation fee. We had not been to this park before, and we selected a site that had a drainage problem -- causing the parking spot to be partly wet and muddy as well as the steps to the picnic table and fire pit. This was a random chance situation -- none of the other sites had the problem. Restrooms and showers were clean, but old/worn. Washington parks require use of tokens (3 min each) for showers, adding 50 cents for each token to the cost of staying. It was a lovely park, the nearby naval air base was not too noisy, though a few aircraft loudly passed overhead during the day. We would stay again.

Price reflects local taxes and is for a water/electric (no sewer) site. It does not reflect any discount for a KOA membership. The check in staff was pleasant, professional, and helpful. We asked for and were located reasonably close to the showers. The showers (closest to us) were in a separate building from the rest rooms, which we did not visit. The showers were each accessed through individual doors to the outside. The vent in one shower did not adequately remove the build up of steam, but the shower I used was fine. Overall, this was a decent, but not great, RV park. For what was provided, the price was high -- but that also reflects its location on the perimeter of the S.F. Bay Area.

This is a very nice, organized RV park with paved roads and sites. Access was easy and appeared to allow sufficient room to maneuver big rigs. The showers and restrooms are separated, with a "unisex" set of showers (each within its own small room). The showers were clean and in good repair. Since the showers were separate from the rest room, we did not view those facilities. The staff was pleasant and located us near to the showers (as we requested) -- but this was facilitated by our relatively small RV. I would happily stay here again.

Price given reflects local taxes. This is an attractive park, located about 10 miles north of Redding just off I-5. It has a Redding address, but is actually located closer to Shasta City (near the Shasta dam). The registration clerk was inexperienced, but pleasant and quite helpful and put us in a site near the showers as requested. The particular evening we stayed had a tremendous storm and during the early morning hours the campground lost power, for about an hour -- but power was restored long before daybreak. (The refrigerator alarm informed us of the power loss.) The restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. The campground is nicely paved and even though on a hillside, the sites are reasonably level. Due to the unusually wet storm, there was some minor flooding, in part due to leaves knocked out of the trees by the wind, clogging storm drains. This required some careful walking to avoid large puddles near the shower building. We did not use their Wi-Fi. We would stay here again (but would look for fuel in Redding, as the close-by stations had exorbitant prices).

Quiet RV park well off the main highway across the road from Patrick Point State Park. There is a trail access to the park, and it's a moderate distance but a fairly level walk to the shore through the park, where there are some outstanding views. The RV sites are located adjacent to a large pond in the middle of the facility. We stayed in one with a wood "patio" overlooking the pond. Staff was friendly and helpful, giving us several maps of the area and suggesting the walk across to the state park and other activities. Restroom and shower were older, but well maintained and clean. We would stay here again.

We stated here in offseason, so half the 'loops' were closed. We stayed in a full hookup site in the Look "C" section. Camp sites were nicely separated with large trees that also shaded each site. (Satellite TV might be problematical -- but Cable TV was supplied.) The restroom/shower closest to our site was older and was worn, but was reasonably clean. It was NOT HEATED nor was the building well insulated, so it was very brisk in 40 degree weather to take a shower. (I would have rated this lovely park higher, had the shower been nicer.) Cable TV worked well and the staff we spoke with were very nice and helpful, especially a volunteer in the Welcome Center. We would stay here again ... in warmer weather.

Stayed during "off season" over Thanksgiving Holiday. Loop "A" and Loop "B" were closed, so all visitors were in Loop "C." The sites were fairly roomy, but neighboring sites are readily visible, and some noise from other tenants was heard during the day. Roads were asphalt with asphalt parking pads, but they were quite narrow, making it difficult to keep from tracking leaves/pine needles from the damp ground into the RV. Restrooms were clean as was the separate shower room. There was minimal heat in the shower room, but it was well insulated, so was not too bad. We would stay here again.

This is somewhat typical of long-established RV Parks along the Oregon coast. It had mostly asphalt paved roads and spaces, though there was no pavement for a "patio" area. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Fairly wide spacing, though trees potentially could interfere with slide-outs at some sites. Rest rooms and showers were clean and well maintained, though showing their age. A "newly installed" WiFi system was generally speedy and reliable: one of the best I've encountered in an RV park. There was a brief outage when my wife couldn't connect, but when I checked 15 or 20 minutes later, it was working again. Staff was friendly and helpful. Roads were easy to navigate with our smaller RV, though they might be slightly more of a challenge in a big rig (roads are narrow, but there are no truly sharp curves). I would stay here again. My assessment of value is "so-so," but about as expected in a coastal tourist area. Price quoted includes local taxes and Good Sam discount.

This was a last minute choice for us; we did not take the time to check out various choices. We were pushing to cover ground, returning toward home, so we picked this off the "GS" park finder app. The facilities are nice, with mostly asphalt-paved sites, though some are concrete. Hillside location overlooks the freeway in the distance, but it's not too noisy. As a late arrival, the office was closed, but we were directed to "take any vacant space" and selected a small back-in site suitable for our rig. (Prices vary by length, so don't take something bigger than what you really need.) The restroom/showers were old, but well maintained and clean. (Better than some newer facilities I've seen.) I'd have rated the park higher, but there was dog waste within a few feet of the water faucet. I guess some guests are not very fastidious. I would stay here again. (When I mentioned the dog waste, the owner gave me a 10% off next visit note on a business card.)

Although lacking a bit in charm, this park is well located near I-205 in the north-central part of town. Mostly paved, there is little grass with most spaces separated with rock-filled strips. Wooden board fences also divide the spaces. About 85% of the spaces are long term. The current manager has been on the job a few months, and was quite pleasant and helpful (directing us to restaurants, etc.) Not much within walking distance, but several restaurants are a short drive. "Snooty" attitude remarked on in other comments did not seem present, though when we called for a reservation, we were asked the year of our RV. (This occurred with several other RV parks on this trip -- a more frequent experience than in the past.) We can't really call this "kid friendly" -- kids are welcome, but there's no real facilities for them -- no pool or playground. We would stay here again.

Very clean and well maintained restrooms and showers. Very clean park with concrete pads, asphalt roads, and grass between spaces. Easy access for big rigs (used to have one) and the back in spaces for smaller RVs were easy to get into. Walking distance to a couple of decent restaurants and several fast food joints. Freeway noise can be annoying, especially if you have open windows and vents. Some spaces "back up" to the freeway fence. Pleasant and helpful staff. Rate reflects discount. We'd stay here again as we've stayed here many times when passing trough.

Price reflects Passport American discount. (Regular rate is $30.) We picked this park due to the good reviews posted by others... and we were not disappointed. Indeed, when asked what discount cards they accept, we were very pleased when they offered their affiliation with P.A. (An unexpected bonus.) The restroom/showers are actually individual private bathrooms, so this is one of the best facilities I've encountered. Wi-Fi signal is passable (but we also had 4 out of 5 bars on Verizon on our iPad). It's close to a freeway, so there's some noise, but it's not a major-high traffic route. As described, there is little charm to the paved parking lot design, but the spaces are plenty wide and easy to get into. There are mostly pull through sites, but some back-in sites as well. For an overnight stop, this is a decent place. The Slaton Bakery, on the town square downtown is excellent, and worth the side trip. We would stay here again.

Like a lot of desert area parks, this one was dusty, but it did have some patches of weedy grass between spaces. When we arrived at 4:15 PM, the office was closed, even though a sign indicated that it would be open from 4 to 6 PM. (Also from 9 AM to 1 PM.) However, there were instructions to select a vacant site with park maps as a guide. We drove through the park, stopped in one site ... then walked around to see if we could find one closer to the showers ... and moved to another spot, more to our liking. The gravel sites were relatively level and the hook-ups were in good condition. Walking back to the office, I stopped in the restroom, and discovered that it was out of paper towels -- and the hand-blower didn't work. (I was told it was switched from the office to keep "kids from playing with it." There was an apology for the paper towels being out -- and the dispenser was full the next morning when I took a shower.) Otherwise, the restroom/shower was reasonably clean, but was obviously used (dusty foot prints, etc.). In the end, I'd rate this as a "C" grade facility. There is a garden with beautiful rose bushes (some were still in bloom even late in the season). The pool was obviously closed for the season as it was about half-full with murky water -- and the hot tub was empty and pool cleaning equipment was stacked inside the enclosure. Nice playground next to the pool for young kids. While I wasn't terribly impressed with this RV park, I'd consider staying here again, since the alternatives in the area don't look to be any more inviting.

This is an absolutely beautiful campground. The Dolores River runs through the middle, with spaces on both sides of the river. Bridge was under repair during our visit, so the far shore was vacant. Although we arrived with no reservation, we were given a space on the river front (late season). The park was only about 1/2 full for this mid-October visit. The showers and rest rooms were clean and there was plenty of hot water. Laundromat was also clean and roomy with a folding table and a rolling basket to move laundry around. Note that the Dolores address is a little misleading, since the park is 25 miles (past Stoner) up the highway. I would definitely stay here again -- though I'll come a little earlier in the year, as it was freezing overnight (catching us by surprise) leaving me with a frozen water hose (that defrosted in our RV shower).

For the price, this was a great RV park. Sites are fairly level. Overall, the place is rustic, but patches of grass separate the gravel sites and roadways. Restrooms and showers were good (a solid "B"), though the carpenter set up the toilets with almost no room between the door and the commode! There are trees on the property, but the sites where not particularly shaded. Spacing is closer than some, but not horrible. Very quiet at night. Charming land-lady: very friendly. Great restaurant across the street in easy walking distance (but expensive). We would stay here again

I selected this park due to the positive reviews. I was sorely disappointed. We are now traveling in a Class B (Roadtrek) RV, and due to the small shower, we prefer to use park showers, if possible. The restroom/showers were deplorable. There was a 2" deep puddle in a sunken portion of the floor just in front of the men shower. The water was nearly black from stuff growing within. I would have been afraid to put any weight on that part of the floor in case it collapsed. All the faucets in the bathroom (shower, sink, etc.) were dripping. Attempting to wash my hands at the sink, the whole faucet twisted when I tried to turn it on. As for the rest of the park, it was "rustic" but the 30 amp electric tested OK and the water pressure was good and there were no problems with the sewer hook-up. It looks as if this park has fallen into a state of neglect. There were only two other campers on the night of our visit.

Located a few miles from Bryce Canyon National Park entrance, this is a nice place to stay. A rustic park (gravel/dirt roads/sites), it has a pleasant pine forest surrounding all the spaces. Hookups were in good condition. Some spaces are not particularly level -- a problem for us since our Class B (Roadtrek) does not have any leveling jacks, but by careful positioning in the space, we were able to be close enough to level. Rest rooms were clean, showers were smallish. They were in need of "temperature compensating valves" as a flush in either gender's rest room would cause wild water temperature variations. All sites had wooden picnic tables and fire rings (bring your own wood). Do not confuse this with the similar-named motel and restaurant across the street a few hundred yards to the east. I would consider staying here again.

This is a lovely, mature RV park with lots of large shade trees. It seems to have a large number of long-term residents, mostly "snow birders." Rest rooms were clean and showers were fully acceptable (I'd give 'em a "B"). We previously stayed here in a big rig. But backing into the space with our Roadtrek (23') was much easier. This is a good place to access Zion NP. Not as close as some, but not as much traffic to contend with either. A new Wal-Mart has opened on the outskirts of town. We would definitely stay here again.

About what you'd expect for an RV park on the Las Vegas strip -- big parking lot, little charm. All hook-ups worked with no problems. Due to security the park was brightly lighted all night long. Restroom/Shower nearest our space was closed for exterior painting, but was open the next morning. I'd rate the shower as a "B" -- fully acceptable, but not great. Due to age, the facilities are showing signs of wear and tear. We would use this park again.

This is a very clean, neat park. Concrete pads next to the compressed gravel parking spots, and nice green lawns between sites. The park is about 5 years old, and the trees are still fairly small. It is close to a freeway, so some sites are exposed to a bit more noise. Access was easy, and we were able to back in to our space with no trouble. The showers were "A" quality -- roomy, plenty of hot water, clean, and in good condition. We would stay here again.

A very clean, attractive, well maintained, mature RV park. Did not seem to have excessive number of long term tenants. Large trees provide shade in the oppressive heat of the Sacramento Valley (100 degree summer temperatures are common in this area). The first impression was that the park would be difficult to maneuver in -- but the roadways are adequately wide and we had no trouble with our 42' rig. Free WIFi worked great. Located off the main highways, the park is very quiet. The "famous" Green Barn restaurant is an easy walk for a steak dinner. Washing RVs and vehicles is permitted! We would stay here again.

Park is located about 5 miles off US 97 on the rim of the Crooked River Canyon -- a dramatic chasm. Hiking trails run along the rim and down into the canyon to those so inclined. Roads and sites are gravel. Patches of lawn and nice trees, but generally dry landscape. Very quiet. WIFI worked well. Would stay here again.

Park was quite new-looking and very clean and quiet. Pull-through sites are 'siamese' so if you're early, you can pull through, but if you're late, you'll probably have to back in. Roads and sites are asphalt. Nice lawns between sites. Located in a somewhat industrial area, the entrance has somewhat more security than most RV parks we've used (but we saw no issues with security). Located next door to a golf course. WiFi worked very well. We would stay here again.

Very clean RV park in a beautiful setting. One of our all time favorite RV parks. Clean, warm pool. Lovely hiking trail. While close to the freeway, a hill blocks the noise, so it's very quiet. I'd rate it a 10 if it had cable TV. Roads and sites were gravel. New owners are maintaining the park at a high level. While the park has big rig access, we were in an end-row site that required exiting by driving around through the park as it would have been impossible for us to make the 270 degree exit turn--the interior roads were wide and easy to maneuver in. We would stay here again.

As a base for a visit to Yellowstone NP, this is about as good as any RV park in the area. Rates are competitive, but hardly a bargain. Park was clean with many trees. Sites and roads were gravel and level. Pull through site was at the back of the park and easy to get in and out of with our 42' rig. WIFI is a paid service, and not very reliable for the price -- we were very disappointed with the service. Takes checks or cash only, no credit cards.

Generally clean, but has a lot of long-term tenants. Facilities are pleasant. Sites are somewhat narrow. "Pull-through" site we were assigned was not truly pull through with our 42' rig, as the exit road was quite narrow -- we had to exit by backing out of the site. WIFI was very unreliable due to high-demand. (It worked great at 4 AM when hardly anyone was online.) We were able to use a computer in the office/rec room to check our email. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

This was an overnight stop for us. The park was clean and well laid out. It was rather less dusty than most desert-type RV parks. Gravel, wood chips, and small patches of lawn made pleasant surroundings. Sites are cordoned off with small logs, so spaces are clearly indicated. Roads and spaces are gravel. A flood (from a nearby drainage channel) had occurred a couple days before we arrived, but the owners were well into cleaning up the mess. Staff was very pleasant. Rate was based on Passport America. We were unable to get a reliable wifi signal at our site.

Park was clean and typically dusty as are most dry-area parks. Our stay on Thanksgiving Day included a free turkey, with all the trimmings, dinner in a very small restaurant next to the office. Expectations were low, but the meal was actually very good. The assigned space was adequate for our 43' rig, but the exit route from our "pull-through" site included some impossible turns. We elected to back out from the space, thereby avoiding the difficult maneuvers. Proximity to the freeway was sufficiently distant that noise was not an issue, even though we had windows open most of the evening. We would stay here again -- even if we didn't get a free dinner.

The rate is for full hookup site. Water & Electric sites are less. In addition, $2 per person is charged. If a couple spends more than 15 days, in Texas parks, you should get an annual pass ($60) that's good for the daily per-person entry fee for all people in a single vehicle. (See the Texas State Park web site for details.) You can buy the pass when you check-in. Lockhart State Park is a small and very quiet park that features a 9-hole golf course, hiking trails, and a swimming pool (seasonal). A lovely creek runs through the park. The 10 full hook-up, back-in sites are easy for a big rig to get into we had no trouble with our 43' rig. The sites are located near the golf course fairway, with about half offering a view of the course. These sites offer 50 Amps. The 10 Water & Electric (20 or 30 Amp only) sites running along the creek can accommodate smaller rigs, but only one or two of them could take a rig over 30-35 feet. Verizon cell service is very spotty. Other cell phones worked OK. This is the third time we've stayed here and we'll likely visit again.

Pull through site was adequate. Park was quite dusty. Big rigs must drive around the perimeter of the whole park to get into the pull-through spaces toward the front of the campground. Lots of long-term residents. Nice playground. Rate was with Passport America discount. Park is far enough from the freeway to minimize noise. I'd stay here again for an overnight.

Big, noisy (view of I-80), dusty, no landscaping to speak of, and overpriced. I've stayed a few miles down the road in Green River on other trips through WY, but that park was full... Adequate for an overnight, nothing else to recommend it. I'd try to stay elsewhere in the future.

We were given a nice end-spot, pull through site for our 3 night stay. Park has some grass, but has a lot of gravel and is a bit dusty. Staff was pleasant. While it has easy access to I-81 from the Ft. Chiswell exit (Wytheville is the mailing address, but the park is about a dozen miles north), the park is quiet. A Flying J truck stop is not far (but no noise from them, either). We'd stay here again.

We stayed here two weeks (lower rate) and found it quite good as a base point to visit Amish country and other parts of south-central PA. The park was clean and we were given a site close to the office. While the back-in site was relatively close to other nearby RVs, we felt comfortable with it. It wasn't particularly difficult to get our 43' coach into the space. The first night, we did not have a full 50 amps, but the park owner provided a 'cheater box' and extension cord to use dual 30 amp circuits, so we weren't seriously inconvenienced. (The next day, after another RV left, we were able to move our power cord to the 50 Amp circuit.) The park has facilities for kids -- but we didn't see too many during our stay. There are quite a few seasonal residents but most were not occupied during our late season visit. We would stay here again.

If you're looking for a slick, resort-type park, this isn't it! This is a very rustic park in an out of the way place. While children are welcome, I doubt that there's much for them to do -- I'd suggest that the park is suitable for an overnight only with kids. Adults, seeking quiet countryside living, might enjoy a few day-stay (we wish we could have stayed several days, but we already had subsequent prepaid reservations). Due to a problem on the road, we arrived just after dark. It was difficult to see/find the park. However, the park owner appeared with flashlight and assisted as we disconnected our tow'd and backed our motorhome so we could enter the park. The owner also helped guide us into our assigned space (park lighting is minimal). The space itself was quite roomy. The park has a number of long-term tenants and a few stored RVs. The owner explained the large number of vehicles parked -- apparently they also restore 'classic' cars that they export to Europe -- there were a half-dozen Ford Mustangs in various states of restoration and a fully restored 1928 Buick (very nice) parked in view. Previously this RV park was shown to have pull through spots, but that does not seem to be the case at this time. There was plenty of room to maneuver our 43' rig. We would stay there again.

The counter person was pleasant, but the pull through space we were directed to was filled. After walking back to the office, we were told "I guess the other girl rented it" and we were directed to another space that was an unusual front-in space. Neighboring travel trailer's awning nearly touched the side of our coach (we don't have slide outs). Spaces are oddly shaped. Roadways are poorly marked and zigzag somewhat and many trees present a challenge to avoid. Low hanging branches scrapped the top and upper sides of our coach. Sign stating "private road" was actually the back side road through the park. It was very stressful getting our 43' rig parked after threading through all the trees. The web site for the park gives an impression that is not matched to the reality. There appear to be many long-term tenants in rather ramshackle trailer. I would not stay here again.

This is a very clean, neat park. Facilities were well thought out and were in excellent condition. This is a Passport America park, so we actually paid $13.25 per night including tax. The park is a little over 1 year old. Owner has plans to extend the park into an adjacent wooded area (for shady camp sites). The spaces are reasonably wide and there's no trouble with slide outs. No picnic tables or fire rings (but it was rather cool and windy during our three-day stay, so outside activities weren't a priority.) There are two covered pavilions for group activities. If I'm in the area again, I'll stay here again.

This is a small RV park in a lovely setting by a creek. Our 42' rig was accommodated with little difficulty, but if the park had been more filled when we arrived, it might have been more challenging to get parked. The owner (or son, I don't know which) was most helpful in directing me into the back-in space by the creek. I was also given directions to local attractions. I didn't use the wi-fi, but was able to see the signal on my laptop. I would stay here again.

This RV Park is tucked in behind a small motel. For our 43' rig, it was a struggle to get into the assigned space. The site was attractive and the park was well maintained. Overall, I was pleased with the site, but I'm not sure that I'd want to stay here again with a big rig. (I had less trouble getting out, when we left.) Owners were pleasant and helpful. Beach was a few blocks away, walkable to those who like the exercise, and certainly easy to get to in a car. The location is a few blocks north of the center of town -- again, walkable to those who don't mind a few blocks and easy to get to by car.

We've stayed at this park several times. For us, it's one of the better parks in the Golden/front range area. The park is clean with nice lawns and a creek running through it. The RV area surrounds the owner's home. There are rental houses and a mobile home park adjacent to where the RVs park. We were able to get Verizon cell service and "air card" service at broadband speeds -- until a recent thunder storm appears to have wiped out the tower. The WiFi offered by the park is sporadic. Our rig is 43', and the owner did a great job directing to get me into our assigned space. On an earlier trip, we were able to be on the main road backed up to the creek -- a lovely site. (Not much traffic on the road.) This time, we're behind the owner's house where 6 or 7 spaces are laid out on gravel -- they're a little close together, but the park hasn't been full this season (fuel prices?) so the RVs have been relatively well spaced out. There's no facilities for kids or outdoor activities (picnic tables, etc), so it's not really for the RVer who is looking for outside living. The owners have been friendly and accommodating. Cash only is accepted -- check by mail to confirm advance reservation. Cable TV is by Comcast (you can get the channel lineup online). We are likely to stay here again.

This park is very clean. Plenty of room to get my 43' coach in and out of a pull through. Sites have a near-level concrete pad for the RV with asphalt road ways. I did not experience any trouble with long-term resident's vehicles as mentioned in another review. I've stayed here several times as an overnight stop and will do so again if I pass by this way. One thing to note is that the office is open rather short hours but allows payment in an envelope through a slot. My after hours arrival was handled by having my name and space number posted on the door -- I was also given the space number when I made a reservation. Got 10% off with Good Sam.

Has a mix of pull through and back-in sites. Roadways are gravel, but most camping spots have a level concrete pad. Pull through sites are doubled front/back and alternate facing direction (apparently to facilitate efficient hookups). I stayed 2 nights on my most recent visit and previously stayed 1 night several months before. The park is quiet and sufficiently far from the Interstate so that traffic noise isn't a serious consideration. Plenty of room to maneuver my 42' rig. Laundry room was small (6 washers/6 dryers) but sufficient -- and clean. "Exercise room" was a joke. It was next to the laundry room with an unpowered treadmill and a stationary bicycle -- next to a hot water boiler. I would stay here again, if I pass through the area.

This park was very easy for my big rig to enter and leave. The park has both back-in and pull through sites. I stayed in a pull through for 5 nights as I was having work done in town on my motorhome. I entered and left daily. The park was very clean and well maintained. Attractive grass and tree plantings. The only detraction was the proximity to Interstate 5, so there was some highway noise. I'd stay there again.

We stayed in this park while taking a class with the RV driving school. As a result, we left the park each morning and returned each evening. Access was good for our 42' coach using a back-in space. The campground was attractive with many trees. The park requests that no carpets be placed on the lawns adjacent to each parking pad. SIgns indicated that sprinklers would run in the early morning hours (but during our winter visit, this did not occur). Spaces seemed close together. Park didn't have much charm. I doubt that I'd stay here again.

This is an attractive park with many trees. We especially liked the "executive" site we were assigned. With our 42' rig, access was somewhat of a challenge due to a tight turn around the park office. We had to take a longer route through the park and turn around to reach our assigned site. The park was located within easy walking distance to Columbia State Park in the heart of the California Gold Country. I would stay at this campground again, should the opportunity arise.

Campground is located on a hillside with individual spaces terraced along the access roads. Our November, off season, visit found the park quite empty. Rainy weather provided rather muddy conditions. The parking spots are graveled and supported our coach properly, but keeping muddy footprints out of the coach was a problem. (A little more generous width to the gravel parking pads would have been nice.) Wi-Fi service was spotty -- the signal would be lost from time to time, then, when resumed, I'd often have to log in again. I was disappointed that this campground had dropped out of Passport America, as we found them through the Passport catalog.

This is an attractive campground with many large trees. Our visit, in January, was during a very quiet time and the park was nearly empty. We especially liked that many sites were screened from the neighbors by bushes and trees. Wi-Fi worked quite well. We could get no signal on our cell phone (may depend on your carrier). We were charged $3 per day extra for a 50 Amp service (included in the quoted rate above). A 10% Good Sam or FMCA member discount was available (also reflected in the above price). I don't have a satellite TV service (yet) but I expect that the many large trees at this park might present a problem for those who do. The cable TV service was quite basic, but adequate, with only 10 channels available. We would use this park again. While it's expensive, the price is in line with other parks in the area considering the facilities and location. Back in access for our 42' motorhome was adequate, but might not be suitable for a beginner. There are a couple of pull through sites available for larger units.
