A pleasant discovery. And Carmela Vineyard is just across the street with a good restaurant. Planned to stay 1 night and stayed 2. Very relaxing and restful if you ignore the freight trains. Nice and shady. Would stay here again.
Pleasant people. Park is nicely kept. The only problem is getting into it if you are coming from Port Angeles with a long rig. You are better off going to the next overpass and using it to reverse directions. Otherwise you have a relatively tight U-turn to get on the north side of the 4-lane where the park is. This information is to alert you, not to discourage you. We liked the park and would stay here again.
Facilitywise this may not be the most luxurious of campgrounds. But, DO keep in mind that this is the Rockies: level ground is at a premium so expecting wide spaces is foolish. The staff here was more than helpful. We planned to stay 3 nights and ended up staying 5. The reason to stay here is to visit Yellowstone National Park, not to lounge around the campground expecting something like a Florida gated community. We really liked this campground and expect to stay here again.
We tried to stay here and have the following comments, all of which boil down to: avoid this place if you can. 1. Do NOT attempt this campground if your RV is more than 34 ft long or 11 fit high at highest point (and do not forget your air conditioner)! Unless they have trimmed trees, you run risks. 2. They only have (maybe) 30 amp electricity. On Sept 9th, many of the sites had electrical boxes taped closed. Also, water was leaking from the valves of the spigots. 3. It is possible that no one will be here to direct you, even if it is before 5 pm when the office "officially" closes. The person who answered our phone call earlier in the day, was no where around, even though she'd said there would be someone in the office. Just after we pulled in from the extremely dusty, washboardy Craven Road, several more RVs pulled in behind us. It was a grab-bag as to where people went. The only place that would possibly have taken our Itasca Ellipse 40 had it's electricity taped closed. And the tree branches in several other spots would have damaged the Coach. One of the people who was here before us, reported that there had been a sign on the door saying "back in 15" when they arrived, so they chose a spot. Going back to the office 40 minutes later the sign had been removed but no person was in the office. We selected this campground because of the "promised" boating on the lake. Didn't see a lake. We regret having to give a bad report as we try to support small businesses. Upshot of problems: Left this campground and went up the road to the KOA. (Yes, we paid 2.5 times this rate, but got 50 amp, water, sewer, electricity, nice people in the office and a guide to our site).
