The setting of this park is unbelievable. You are right on the Clearwater River in Orofino. Forty- three of the forty-nine sites are right on the river. The back in spaces are rock and our's was perfectly level. They have five pull-throughs that are on blacktop. Interior roads are blacktop. Marge in the office is a sweetheart, even changed our site for us to make it better for us, and I didn't even ask. The showers were a "10" as was the laundry room. No pool or other ammenties, other wise this would be "9+". I don't give many "10"'s. To me, the surroundings of a park are not really that important. Yes, there are some railcars near the park, but so what. On the opposite side you have a beautiful river and evergreen trees. The noise on Highway 12 is kind of loud during the day, but at night it really quites down. When we were here there WAS river traffic. Fishermen running their boats both directions at high rates of speed. It is kind of rough getting into the park, but if you go slowly, so what. I don't care what I have to go through to get into the park, it is what it is like when I am there that counts. The rate shown is river-front back-in with Good Sam. The trains go by about 2-3 times a MONTH, so I guess we lucked out in our three days here, none came by. We would come back here in a heart beat.
The previous reviews have pretty much hit this park on the head. We enjoyed the above mentioned horse ranch, the deck by the Yakima river, the very nice managers. Very peaceful place. There is some traffic noise from the freeway, and the occasional train (no horns, however), but we did just fine, noise-wise. One thing I want to mention are the restrooms. They are great. cleaned every day, sometimes twice. Have separate shower/toilet area for each shower, secured by a locked door, with basins and mirrors in the "common area". Good laundry area. Trees is some spots, grass in all with picnic tables. Yes, there are many "permanent" residents, and some of the RV's aren't the best looking, and old, but most of those are kept in one part of the park. Also, don't judge the people by their RV's. In the month we have been here, we have met many of them, and they all seem very nice. We stayed here because were too late to get into the park we originally wanted, but when we come back this way, we will definitely stay here. Give the owners a chance to show you how a park should be run. Rate is for a month including electricity.
Rate reflects GS discount plus taxes. This is an older park. As has been mentioned, the park is on a hill, and the spots are terraced. People are nice, restrooms and showers are good. The roads a narrow, and we got in OK with our 34' Motor home, but it could be really tight with a 40-45 footer. It seems to be a little over priced, but you pay for the location, which is great. Very near Camping World, Les Schwab (tires) and America's Tires, and restaurants of many different kinds. They have "Premium Sites", which mean that they have good WiFi reception, for four dollars more. We stayed two nights, and decided that we could get by for two nights with "spotty" wifi and pocket the extra eight dollars. The site she gave us (which was only five up the row from the "Premium Site" had great WiFi. Glad I saved the eight dollars. (number 102). We would probably stay here again if we needed to be near the southern part of Portland.
This is our first time in a mobile home park setting with our motorhome. If this is typical, it will not be our last. The gal in the office was very nice and helpful. The spot she gave us was great, near everything. The park was very neat and clean with nice people. It was near a street that was busy during the day, but between less traffic in the evening, the park being set back from the road, and the blocking of noise by the mobile homes, the traffic was not a problem at all. We stayed here 3 nights and would stay here again.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This place is a gravel parking lot with full hookups. The "camp hosts" are all very nice. The hookups are well placed, spots fairly level, trees small, but give some shade, plenty of room to park you car beside your coach even with a slideout out. WiFi very good if you are in the right spot. Try for #51. Restrooms are old, and the paint is flaking, but they are cleaned every day by the city, and there is plenty of free hot water. We planned on staying two, maybe three days, but ended up staying eight, and we still didn't do everything we wanted, but had to move on. A good base of Bodega Bay and other places on the coast, as well as the Napa Valley, and Santa Rosa itself, home to Charles Shulz and Luther Burbank. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a great little park in Watsonville. It is a city park that has a few RV sites. It sits right on Pinto Lake. There is fishing, boat rentals (in season), a great play area for the kids, and a Little League Baseball diamond within the park. The spaces were grass and fairly level. The views of the lake were great. The gal in charge was great (more later). The place was only about half full when we were there. It is a convenient place to use as a base for visiting Santa Cruz and Monterey. You are able to pick out which spot you want, so we looked around and picked one that was right next to the lake. We originally planned to stay for two nights, so paid the $70 dollars due, in cash, to the gal and proceeded to park our motorhome in that spot. Just after getting it backed in, my wife, who had gone up to the office to tell the lady which spot we had chosen, came running down from the office and said that the gal had forgotten to tell us that #15, buy edict of the the city, could only have small units in there. No problem, we just moved over to #14. A few minutes later she came down to us and handed us back $10 of the $70 because of the inconvenience to us. We said "No, that isn't necessary, it wasn't any big thing to move", but she insisted. We ended up staying three nights and loved the entire stay, and will be back.
Rate reflects one night at PA rate. This is a hard one to rate. It is great for what it is, a good spot for an overnighter. It has many full-timers in the front of the park, and the spaces are very tight. We were just passing though, so asked for a pull-though. They are in the rear in what appears to be a newer part of the park. They are in sand/dirt/gravel. Lots and lots of room to pull in. Nice owner/manager. However, in the pull-through area there is no sewer. Fine with us. Didn't use any of the facilities. Good spot for an overnighter. Looked like there might be some interesting things in the area, but no time. We would stay here again.
This campground remains a TEN. This is our second year here and we are coming back next year. As all of the other previous reviews have stated, the amenities are first rate. One other thing is that as opposed to some reviews of other parks that have many "full timers", and the "short timers" are ignored or even worse, in this park there is no difference in acceptance between owners of lots and those of us who just rent. Everyone is as friendly as they can be. We are staying in the same spot next year as this, and the neighbor on one side said that he won't be in that space next year and said that he is sorry that we won't be neighbors next year. The price is based on a monthly rate. Hope some of you come to join us.
What a find! We were on our way south and needed to find a place near Redlands for a night. We went on line and found this place. It is a beauty. A lot of grass, much room between sites, good water pressure, a great place to walk, and when we were there in January, almost no one there. They have a great natural "water park" there that I am sure would be great for kids and adults alike (not open in the winter). Good bird watching for being in the city. No road noise at all. Picnic tables at each site. Great people at the gate. The gate closes at 5pm, but they give you a card to be able to get back in after hours. We would go back there in a heart beat if we are in the area again.
We stayed here two years ago, so when passing through this year, we decided to stay here again. It is very simple, plain, but clean with nice people in the office. It is on a road that handles a lot of heavy truck traffic during the day starting about 7 in the morning. Can be annoying if you want to sleep in. We will definitely stay here again if we are passing through and need a spot to stay. Rate is PA.
This is our third time staying here in the past three years. The rate includes one night PA and one night Good Sam. One surprise from last year is the $5.00 "electric surcharge". Still, not too bad a deal. Like has been said, terraced spots on a hill. It was level so we didn't even need to extend our jacks. Long, plenty of room for our 34 foot RV and our car. Very nice people in the office. The gal who helped us had only been in town for a couple of months, but still tried to be helpful about things around town She didn't try to "bluff" her way through, so she didn't get us into any trouble. Restrooms nice. Haven't used the laundry. We will probably stay here again, even though the $5.00 seems a little petty.
This is a nice little park. This was our second time here, the other two years ago, and returned because we liked it so much last time. This is a simple little park. No "extra" stuff, just nice, level, clean places to park your RV. Very nice people in the office. About a mile off of I-5 so there was no freeway noise. A very small pool, but didn't use it in January. A great place to spend a night going north or south. Quite a few "permanents", but they keep their places nice. The park has six spots near the front reserved for "overnighters". Many pull-throughs. Previous reviewer mentioned "no picnic tables". Today each spot had two! A wooden rectangular one, and a round plastic one. We would, and will, definitely stay here again. Rate is Passport America.
Price reflects PA. This is the second time we have stayed here, and stayed here again because of our experience last time. Hermiston is a small town just off of I-84 in eastern Oregon. It is a great place to stop on the way home to Southwestern Washington. Paved roads and spots. Not very level as they slope to the back. The sewer connections are at the very rear of the 70' spot. As we didn't unhook for the one night there, we had to drive around and stop the MH at the rear of a spot to dump. Very nice people in the office, very clean park, restrooms were immaculate. That is one of the things that we remembered from two years ago. Newer park, so the trees are still growing. Could be a little warm in the summer. Great place for passing through. Will definitely stay here again.
This is a campground that has some problems. The space we had was plenty long (85') for out MH and toad. It was level gravel. The onsite "host" was very pleasant and helpful. Let us choose which space of the three they had. Narrow roads, we had to back out of a pull through with our 35 foot MH. There were many full time residents. I don't mind them on the face of it, but this group had no pride in their "homes" at all. Kind of a rough crowd. The lake is seven and a half acres, and there is free, no license, "catch and release" fishing on it. Good place to bird watch, many species in the park and on the lake. Restrooms were old, but clean and the water was hot. Many shade trees. Nothing around this place as far as places to eat, shop or so forth. We might stay here again for a night because of the price.
This is a very nice park. Most of the sites are level gravel, with a few concrete sites for only a dollar per night more. We stayed in a gravel one. Room for our 35' RV and car. They have "buddy" sites, so on one side you are very close to your neighbor, but on the other side there is a very nice plot of grass with a picnic table for each site. Very nice pool and great, clean bathrooms and showers. Easy on and off from the freeway, but very good sound wall to keep the noise down. Very friendly and helpful office staff. We were planning on staying a week, but extended by four days. Thirty five minute drive to Salt Lake City. We were here two years ago and stayed here this year because of our great experience last time. We will be back.
We enjoyed our stay here. The present owners have owned the park about a year. They are making some major improvements. Rebuilding the "satellite " restroom and shower, re-doing the pool and many other things. This is an older park so some of the roads are tight. Our spot was perfectly level. Gravel sites, paved roads. Showers old but very clean. More than helpful at the front desk. The river is "right there", but it is only about six or seven feet across as they take most of the water to northern Utah and Southern Salt Lake Counties for their use. It is nice little park and it is getting better. We were here for three nights and would have readily stayed longer, but we had to get moving. We would definitely stay here again.
Price reflects PA rate. This place is what it is. There are a lot of "permanent" residents, and as has been said, there are only five "overnighter" sites. It is a small family owned park, with the son seemingly running the "office", which was in a small barn. All the sites are pull through, plenty of room for our 35' MH and toad. The people were more than friendly and helpful. Our site was perfectly level, no jacks needed. Again, has has been said, the restaurant on site is great. The mother of the family, runs the restaurant and the food is great and reasonable. Less that $18 including tax for both of us. Plenty of food. They do not take reservations, but there were only two RV's in the park the night we were there. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a nice little park. Very close to the Dam. Easy in-out. Our spot was perfectly level. Worn, but very clean restrooms and showers. Very nice and helpful people. Off the highway, so it was quite quiet. We only stayed one night, but would stay longer in the future. We would definitely stay here again.
This is our first stay in this park, but it will not be our last. We have been here for six weeks, and have really enjoyed it. Spaces are paved, fairly level, picnic table, and grass at each site. Plenty of room for slideouts. It is amazing to find a treed, grassy spot right in the middle of the city. Clean restrooms and showers, that are checked multiple times a day. Beautiful flowers all over the park. They have an award winning former professional landscaper taking care of the grounds and it shows. Basketball, Ping Pong, rock climbing wall, great kids playgrounds, and a very good dog area. Great place to use as a base for sightseeing the area. People in the office very friendly and helpful. Heard one of them going to great lengths finding transportation for for sightseeing for three young ladies with out a car. Busy on weekends, but not obnoxiously so. The rate shown is the monthly rate including electricity. I have to admit it takes a lot for me to give a 10, that is why the nine.
We planned to say here for six weeks, but loved the place so much we extended our stay for another 11 days. The resort is entirely owner owned, and you rent from the owner through the office. It is exceptionally beautiful. Clean, well kept, with many activities, including bocce ball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, dances, bingo, etc. etc. The people in the office are very friendly as are all the people in the park. There are many park models in the park, but they are very well kept up. Swimming pools, hot tubs, showers, laundry, all spotless. The rate quoted is based on a monthly rate. This is a "55+" park. We are going back next year.
The rate reflects the CampClub USA rate. This is a very simple campground. All pull through sites, but kind of tight due to somewhat narrow driveways. If you have a long RV and a long second vehicle, you may end up sticking out into the road, as the unit next to us is. It has very clean showers and restrooms. The Staff was very friendly. We came in during daylight, and because of the way the park is set up, really no assistance necessary. There are no extra amenities. We would stay here again. We just stayed here one night as we were just passing through.
