This RV park has been greatly improved. We stayed here a couple of years ago and there were ants everywhere! Now they are ant free and it's beautiful. The grass is lush and the grounds are beautiful. The back to back spots need some privacy hedges or fences; it is uncomfortable to be so close to one's neighbors. There is construction noise in the early morning and train noise throughout the night, so it's not very quiet. The front office staff are very nice and helpful. However, some of the grounds crew and escorts are surly and act like they don't want to be approached. The trees need some serious trimming as our satellite was extremely difficult to pick up. Trimming would do the trick without losing the beauty of the trees. But it's still an improvement from the last time we were here!
The park has very limited hours. They close at 5:30 - right when everyone is arriving. There are no internal lights to guide you in the dark. I had reserved a pull thru. I was shocked to get to our space and find it was a back in. Only being there one night we didn't want to unhook the car. I called the closed office and they said that they didn't have a record of my reservation being for a pull thru but it had been reserved as a back in. I have reserved 3 months ahead and somehow my reservation had been changed without my knowledge. They said that all the pull thrus we're full. The next morning as we were getting ready to go the trash cart man came by and yelled at us telling us that we only had 30 minutes to leave as check out time was 10. While the park was nice the staff was rude and unhelpful. They don't seem interested in short term reservations nor the need to get them correct.
We stay here often as it is one of our favorite parks. It is beautifully kept and very relaxing. The only thing that I have consistently not been happy with is the excessive lawn watering. They water 5 of 7 nights and the water pressure is so high that it waters RVs, cars, and patios, as well as the lawn. The sprinklers aren't aimed properly to only water the grass. So every night, except Fri and Sat., everything gets soaked! It takes hours in the morning sun for it to dry out, only to be re-soaked again the next night. Nothing can be left on the patio that can't tolerate a drenching. I complained about this and was told it was the best they could do with the system they have. I appreciate a green lawn, but the sprinklers should only sprinkle the grass, not the patio, not the RV and not as a deluge of water. The perimeter spots are nice and big with a fenced yard. They are very wide and worth the extra cost if you like room on your sides. The regular full hookup sites have 6 - 8 feet in between the sites. The perimeter spots come with a fire pit and BBQ grill at no extra charge. They do get drenched every night and are rusty. There is a nice large fenced in dog area. The pool area is very nice, but the pool water is kept on the chilly side. The showers are clean. They have interesting activities on the weekends; BBQ on Fridays and ice creme and movie on Sat. nights. They are consistently upgrading the park and things keep improving. It's a very pleasant park like atmosphere.
When we arrived we were handed a list of 36 rules! Within 2 hours of being there I saw 6 of the rules being violated without any enforcement. After that it got worse. There are many long term residents in this park - app 85%. They don't respect the space of the short term pull-throughs. We had people letting their dog poop on the small gravel patch that was our spot. Between the hours of 3:30 - 7 on weekdays and well beyond those times on the weekends, we were in the middle of an unsupervised skate park with 7-10 children of all ages running, skateboarding and biking through the streets and unoccupied sites. The long term people used the empty short term spots to park their extra cars and weren't happy about someone being in the spot. The office personnel was not friendly nor helpful. The showers were clean but spartan; only one hook and nothing else. The short term spots are all cement with a little bit of gravel separating some of the spots; not all. While each pull-through is long, there is only 7 feet between the spots so slides and awnings just miss each other. There is insufficient space to park one's car; so much so that doors are bashed into each other. This is not my definition of a "resort". The Good Sam rating of 9/9/8 is way too high for this park! Everything is a little insufficient in the park, but nothing is really awful.
The best thing about this park is the ocean view. It's spectacular. Otherwise, it's a giant parking lot. There's only about 4 feet in between the RV's; not even the width of a walkway, let alone anyplace to set out a chair to enjoy the view. Many spaces are too short to park a car and rv together. Getting to the park from the north side of S.F. is a real pain; 4 freeway interchanges and a toll bridge make it a harrowing adventure. Getting here from the south on Highway 1 is a lot easier. There are many long term residents here with junky rv's; some are on blocks with parts all over the ground. There are some end spaces with grass that are nicer then the all blacktop spaces, but one has to request them. The grass on the end spaces is the "dog walk" areas. So dogs visit your spot all day long. Most of the spaces are all blacktop with only the hookup pedestal in between. It looks like a mall parking lot.
This is a good park for overnight. It's quiet, with level sites. The spaces are back to back, so it's close on the back side of the RV. However, each space has a patio, picnic table and a grass area, so the front side of the space is nice. There are a lot of long term RVs around, some are junky others are well kept. There aren't many RV parks on this part of Interstate 5, so this is a good overnight park. It's an easy on and off from the freeway.
This is a nice park. Gravel pull through spaces are wide and long. They are easy to fit into. The showers are clean and convenient with all the necessary amenities. They have a lot of space and need to put in a pool and dog run. They also need to put more trash dumpsters around the park. It's right off the freeway and very easy to get to. The freeway noise is minimal.
This is a really nice resort. The pond and privacy spaces in the back of the park have a lot of room; length and width. The view is very nice. The interior spaces are smaller and closer together. There seems to be lot of long term RV's in the interior, cheaper spaces. However it is neat and tidy looking. We were at the far end of the park - away from the freeway. The freeway noise did not bother us. My main issue with this park is that for a 300 space park the laundry and showers are insufficient. There are 2 laundry areas, each with only 3 washers and 4 dryers. They are busy constantly except for the 2 hours in the middle of the day when they are cleaned. 3 washers is not enough for one person to do all of their clothes! I suspect these laundry areas were designed by a man who wore shrunken, faded clothing from not knowing how to separate his hot/cold, & light/dark loads. It takes forever to do the separate loads with only 3 machines, which causes other people to wait longer. Additionally each of the 2 restrooms only had 2 showers in them. The regular shower is very nice, with a shelf, bench, separate drying area & hooks. The other shower is a handicap shower. It was a large room with nothing in it except the shower head. No rails, no shelf, no bench, no drying area. It is a giant wet room. There was no way the handicapped person could dress without getting their clothes wet. Not all handicap people are in a wheelchair; other room furniture is still needed. Lacking these necessities is why I only gave them 8 out of 10 stars.
This is a very nice campground. The spaces are wide and you have plenty of room for a patio and to park the car, plus slides and awnings. There's about 20 feet between the RV's in the pull through sites. There is less space between the RVs in the back in spaces. The restrooms/laundry/clubhouse/pool area is for a park 1/4 the size. I would guess the park expanded at some point and they didn't put in anymore facilities. The laundry/restrooms pool area is very small without enough car parking around it. The showers 'drying area' isn't separated by a step therefore it's like getting dressed in the shower! Even the shower curtain doesn't touch the ground and is useless at stopping the water from running into the drying area. The showers are dark and need more light fixtures. The trash/recycle area is clustered in the middle of the park. So if you're at the front of the park or the 3rd section of the park, you have to climb a hill to dump the trash. Since the park is so large, every section of the park needs they're own dumpster! The cable TV at our site only half worked. I told the office and they told me it was my equipment (which worked at the last campground). The park is very large with lots of extra space. It would be easy to put in a fenced dog run & a playground for kids. Right now, there is only a dog path on the upper level and a duck pond on a lower level. There are some spots that are not satellite friendly, so ask for a satellite friendly spot when you reserve.
The best thing about this park is it's location. It's right off the 5 freeway about 20 minutes from Seattle. It is very kid and pet friendly. That being said, it has some major problems. The spaces are too close together. The "Deluxe Patio sites" don't have a patio. It is a blacktop pad that connects in the back of the space to the space next to you, which makes a little BBQ area. There is about 10 feet between the RV's in the deluxe sites. The water hookup is in the middle of the next persons outdoor area. The electric and sewer are where they're suppose to be, but the water is all the way over to the next person's area, so much so that you step on it when you come out your door. We seriously questioned whether the utilities installer was drunk when they installed them. No two sights have the utilities in the exact same position; some are worse. The place is way overpriced for what you get. Charging $1.50 per pet, per day is ridiculous. The interior roads are too small. There were 3 accidents that we know of, while we were here. There is no room to park a car, if it does not fit on the space. The office car spaces are always full. People's cars hang over into the narrow streets as the sites are too short and placed too closely together. With the cars hanging into the narrow streets and RV's trying to get by, accidents happen easily.
The pull thrus in the front are very close together and small. Pay the extra for the "super premium site". They are wide, long and worth it. There is no satellite access here. The trees are large and the foliage is heavy. They could have sat. access if they'd trim the trees, but that doesn't seem likely. The man on the phone lied to me and said most of the sites were sat. accessible - the residents told me otherwise when we arrived. They do have good cable TV but that doesn't help if one is missing their prime satellite channels which they pay extra for. There isn't a pet area. They say there's a pet walk but it's out the gate on the street. A street parkway is not a pet walk no matter how many signs say it is; it's the public street! It's very quiet here and the manager is helpful. The 2nd access door to the showers and laundry needs to be opened; it is currently sealed. Dragging all one's clothes through the office is annoying and intrusive. The pool is indoors and heated which is very nice. However there are no windows; it's like swimming in the dark dungeon. There are a lot of junky permanent trailers around but no one bothered us. Because of the junky trailers we chose not to leave any valuable RV items sitting outside unattended (grills, surge suppressors, etc). It is primarily a residential park with a small number of RV's going in and out.
This RV park is clean and quiet, but it has the ambience of sleeping in an RV storage yard. The park is long and narrow and the sites are close together. It has no pool, a very small pet area and a very small playground. It has 3 very nice private "unisex" bathrooms complete with showers. The laundry area only has 6 washers. The back in spaces are extremely small, however they are on a cement pad. Most of the short term back in spaces are back to back. The pull thru spaces have more room, but are on gravel with grass as a patio. Some pull thru gravel spaces are not level. Some have a raised sewer connection (which is very difficult to use since water doesn't run up hill). It's a nice park for a short stay.
Very nice RV park. Our only complaint was that the pool and clubhouse/laundry was too small for such a large park. The pool is very narrow and 6 kids filled it up. There are only 6 restrooms and 6 machines in the laundry (6 washers/6 dryers). The restrooms are like private bathrooms and very nice - there just needs to be more of them. The line in the laundry room was quite long; a 45 minute wait for the washers. The park itself was great - clean and beautiful. There needs to be more dumpsters around as they only had 2, and they were always full with trash overflowing. We would definitely stay here again the next time we're in the area. It's 29 miles away from Boise, but it's nicer than any of the parks closer into town.
The spaces here are a little too close together. We had to juggle a little to get our slides between the electric post and not be in the next person's yard! The spaces are very long, & all our equipment fits on the space. There are a lot of trees, but we managed to find a satellite friendly spot with our yard mounted satellite stand. It's a very nice ambiance. The old rustic "Oregon Trail" decor is very nice. The people in the office are super nice. They were having a city water problem when we were there, and the lady in the office called us before we left our other campground and told me about the water problem (so we could fill our water tank from where we were before we left).. They also gave out free bottled water until the city water problem was fixed.
This is a friendly and clean park. The only problem is the back to front spaces. Who wants to share their grass area with total strangers? When two rigs pull in so they are door to door, there is no privacy. If you're traveling with friends or family and want to do that, it's great. But most of us travel alone and appreciate a little privacy. Shared grass means that you could be parking next to noisy kids or dogs and there's no escape. A few of the spots had private yards, but you still share the electric post, so you were back to back. It was as close as an Interstate rest stop. It made it difficult to open slides and window awnings. Forced intimacy is not what I want when camping.
Very nice campground. The spaces were very wide, so there was a lot of room for slides, awnings and privacy. The restrooms were clean but the floors of the showers were peeling and needed to be re-done. We had full use of the hotel amenities like the very large pool and casino. The pool was in the full sun and the only way to get shade was to rent a cabana, which wasn't cheap. They needed some tables with umbrellas, for no charge. They need to put in cable TV - everything else was so nice, it was strange not to have it. We stayed for 11 days and it was very enjoyable.
The sites are so close together it looks like a used RV sales lot. Our slides almost hit the neighbors awning. The sites aren't level. They say they're pet friendly but they'll only allow dogs on a gravel path and demand they stay off the grass areas. Walking my dog in a parking lot of stones isn't a pet path!
BUGS EVERYWHERE!!!! Don't go to this park unless you like ants. Swarms of ants were everywhere and the park didn't seem to care much about it. They were doing major landscaping and everyone was complaining about the ants. No one seemed to be listening. The office needed to have a major pest control company come in the park and spray. With the landscaping work, it would have been the perfect opportunity to bug spray as well. Instead they sent one of the handymen down with a garden sprayer. After they used the garden sprayer, they turned on all of the sprinklers so it washed away the insecticide that had just been sprayed! When I complained, they told me it was scheduled lawn watering time! This park doesn't really care about their customers if it interferes with the scheduled maintenance. Don't go here unless you want bugs in your coach - lots of bugs! Also, there is no golf course. There's 2 holes- one is a "driving range' and the other a 'chip and putt' . The driving range has no balls to offer and you have to collect your own balls after you hit them. The chip and putt is OK but none of the putting greens have holes. The golf portion of this park is a bad joke.
The spaces are too close together. I asked for a wide space in the office and was told that I was being given one. There was only about 12 feet between my RV and my neighbor in my space. When my neighbor put out their awning, it was one inch away from my slide out.
While the park advertises that it has cable TV hookups, it does not have them in every site. The "premium" river view sites do not have cable TV hookups. The antenna reception is very poor because of the trees. The WiFi connection is very weak and is only available in the center of the park, in the tent area which is very close to the router. It is not available from your space. The park has a beautiful view, but it's spaces are too close together and it is over priced for what it offers.
Nice park; no pet area. Very little grass. The landscaping is mostly large clumps of hard dirt rocks, which are hard to walk on. Upon our check in a man in the office who identified himself as the manager, said he had ‘nothing to do, so he’d help us” get settled in. He went out to our RV, which was parked in the registration area and immediately started yanking on my tow bar. I was behind him and had to yell to him not to touch the tow bar handles as the unit was not straight and they would not release on a curve. When I finally caught up to him, he was waiting patiently for us to straighten up. After we straightened he started “helping” us undo the tow. I was very specific and told him not to undo any cords from the RV but to disconnect ONLY from the car end. He said OK. Less than 2 minutes later he handed me my electrical cord’s adapter - disconnected from the RV. Seeing that the cord had a pin adapter plus my verbal instructions should have given him a clue that this cord has a delicate connection and should not be yanked. I said nothing and we proceeded to our spot. When we arrived at our spot he came over in his truck. He insisted that we park in such a way that our slide trunks wouldn’t open. I informed him of the trunk problems and also the unusual location of our sewer connections and his response was “I know”. It is impossible for him to know the particulars of every make/model of RV, so I found his comment ridiculous. When I told him again that his parking position wouldn’t work for our configuration he got very nasty and insisted saying “I am the manager and it’s my park and I know how to park RV’s”! I told him that we have a similar problem when we stay at a resort in San Diego and we just angle the coach a little and it works well. He answered saying “This isn’t San Diego, and I’m the manager, and you can’t do that!”. I then asked him why we couldn’t angle a little and he said that our car wouldn’t fit on our space. I told him that it was a small car and it would fit. He insisted that it would not, so I moved the car into the space while he watched. It easily fit. At that point he got in his truck and sped away (exceeding his own 5 mph speed limit). We then had to figure out how to park the RV from the unusual position that he had us parked us in, which took us quite a while. He pulled around to the other street and sat there and watched us the entire time. While we had an enjoyable stay, this was not an enjoyable start to our vacation.
