Selected park due to proximity to Dallas National Cemetery where I was to attend my brother's military burial. Being a Lifetime member of Passport America I asked for but wasn't able to get it for some reason. Happened to mention my disappointment to a friend & learned of a new?, not advertised, military discount. Not until after the funeral did I check in with the Front Office. There another guest saw me in uniform, shook my hand, and thanked me for my service. And, surprise, the Manager said a 50% military discount was applied to my account. For that, I am most appreciative to the Carefree RV Resorts organization, and I encourage other service members to give them your business when in the area. The price shown reflects the normal rate with the usual discount - not the military rate.
We've stayed here before and were happy to come back. Called ahead and was advised which available site would serve our needs best (site #6, 50 amp end-site, pull-through). We arrived after hours but found the Reserved cone saving our site. We were not too late to enjoy watching the sunset from our picnic table overlooking the marina with a stunning view of the Columbia River. The park hosts came around later in the evening to register late arrivals. Ours was only an overnight but it was such an easy in and out experience for the price, we highly recommend it.
Just wrapped up a 3-night, Camp-out "Rally" with several others in an RV Club. This Park was so friendly and accommodating. We were given a large meeting room in the Club House and used the covered patio. The kitchen facilities inside and the grill equipment outside were super. The 50-amp sites were all taken but we used a 30-amp and it worked fine. This was our first visit but we would definitely return.
Ditto what at least one other reviewer reported. Easy off & on the freeway; Flying J Travel/Truck stop at same intersection. Office was closed when we arrived, but we read notes pointing out available sites that were in working order. We chose a FHU 50A pull-thru, registered the next day, picked out a free movie to borrow, got directions to town, and accepted recommendations for dining (do NOT miss "The Machine Shed" restaurant). Spouse got satellite signal, & I used our Verizon Broadband for Internet access. Park Wi-Fi was free (get User ID & password from Front Desk). Not a bad RV Park - would probably return if in the area.
This wasn't our first stay and not likely our last. Things seem to get better and this time the Park offered free Wi-Fi that I was able to access with a good signal strength. I preferred using our own Verizon Broadband, however. Because of scheduled rally reservations for the pull-thru sites up front, we accepted a back-in site toward the rear of the park and were fully satisfied. Our site was gravel, FHU 50A, and fairly easy to get in and out of. The park's location is out in the country but convenient for visiting in the area. We took Hwy 69, got off at the 335th exit, drove the short distance where 335th meets Metcalf, turned right and then an immediate left into the RV park entrance. Price reflects a Good Sam discount. Front Office staff was friendly and efficient. We'd return again if in the area.
It is true this is an RV park that has the potential for being a gem! However, when we called for directions they said to come to the office first to register. Bad first impression - we had to pull our rig & tow into the owners farming operation (dirt driveways after rains = mud); check-in, then leave and continue on down the road to the real RV park. Frankly - a real turn-off. That said, the RV Park itself is VERY nice (and projects in progress promise even more improvements). The sites are wide, long, FHU, landscaped & not crowded. Clubhouse is new, clean and modern. Had problems locating the water spigot (friendly neighbor joined the hunt and eventually discovered it hidden below beauty bark rock and broken). A call to the owners brought someone to repair the water hook-up within the hour. Nice, friendly park would really benefit from a couple of on-site/on-duty Camp Hosts to meet & greet RVers. We would definitely return if in the area and if we could drive directly to the campground for check-in and registration (eliminating the detour through the working farm operation).
Not bad; an older KOA trying to upgrade to accommodate bigger rigs. Construction projects were noticeably apparent. Being early in the season, park was not crowded. We requested one of the 4 newer FHU sites on higher ground, a longer gravel pull-thru; patio had wrought-iron picnic table, BBQ grill on stand, & portable fire pit. Sparse trees did not block satellite signal, & Verizon Broadband accessed Wi-Fi. Good for a couple of days. Price reflects 10% KOA discount.
Price reflects a Good Sam discount; still a little high in my opinion, but the hospitality was first-rate. I was greeted warmly at the door and check-in was friendly & efficient. Even though the park was well-occupied when we arrived we were still offered a choice of the remaining available sites. Since this is a newer, nicer RV Park it has long concrete pads w/patio & picnic table, FHU, and free-fast WiFi. Mostly small trees at the sites (some towering pines along the park's perimeter) so satellite signal was not blocked. Laundry & Restrooms close, clean & convenient - never saw any showers (presumably in a separate area?). Following rains, the ground around the pond (lake?) was marshy. That might account for the air sometimes smelling unpleasant as well as affecting the taste of the tap water.
This wasn't our first stay in the Park and won't be our last. We keep returning because, for the money, it's still one of the best values & locations convenient to visiting in the Ft. Worth area. The price reflects the weekly rate of $225; we were able to take our pick of available sites and selected a long pull-thru in the newer 109 - 120 row near the newer Club House, pool, and bath/laundry facilities. Trees are scattered throughout the park but didn't block our satellite signal. WiFi was free but we used our Verizon Broadband access. Since we checked in on a weekend we missed our favorite friendly greeter Dorothy but enjoyed her welcoming us back when we saw her on duty during the week. This park has one of the largest choices of books and movies for the use of its guests. Pet lovers may enjoy the designated Dog Walk & Trail along the freeway. The traffic noise is inevitable so try for a site as far away from it as you can. There's propane if you need to fill-up and there's lots of shops, service stations, and restaurants up the road at Exits 38 & 39. We recommend it and would return.
This is one of our favorite seasonal RV Parks; the price reflects the 2007 winter season monthly rate of $395. Next winter season the price will be higher; we've already got our reservation on the books. It's been a quiet, restful place to stay. The scheduled "activities" include informal potlucks most Sundays. Don't miss Wednesday morning breakfasts (FREE - you may put in a donation & everybody does). The already-clean restrooms were upgraded during our last visit and plans are in the mill for a whole new row of shore-line sites available on extended lease. Spouse was happy with the good DISH satellite signal (no CATV available). I would assign a higher score if the Park's free WiFi had a consistently stronger and more reliable signal throughout the Park or if they provided some sites with instant-on phones. To ensure I had 24/7 internet access I eventually got Verizon Broadband and our cell phones worked fine as well.
We were lucky enough to preview this facility beforehand, toured the entire park, and had our choice of sites. Staff helped us to stick to areas known to get the best WiFi reception. Spouse had no problems getting Sat signal. Prices vary, and there's discounts available. We enjoyed the convenience of the shuttle to/from the Casino, where we treated ourselves to casual meals, fine dining, and the best ice cream I've had in a long time. We even made use of the Truck Stop facilities for diesel fuel, propane and even a tire repair (on Toad). Will return!
This wasn't our first stay (or our last). We keep coming back for all the good reasons: cool climate, great biking paths, super choice of sites, fabulous fresh seafood. clean campground, free WiFi (yes, we got the signal occasionally but preferred to use our Verizson Broadband Access). No problem for spouse to get Sat signal. There were lots of families towing their ATVs to adjacent sand dunes. Park rules kept the noise to a minimum. Weekly rate was $220.
This is a very decent RV Park and a good value. We had a moon-shaped pull-thru full hook-up site with the river view on our passenger side. Outside our door we could place lawn chairs on a grassy knoll overlooking the Marina & watch the sunset. We were able to get on the Internet with a good signal from our Verizon Broadband Access. We had to jockey the motorhome between the tall trees at our site but was successful in getting a strong satellite aignal for DISH. A short drive away we found the USA Today available at nearby stores and a Shell Truck Stop at the corner of Brownell & Hwy 730 for fuel. Visit the Marlette Manufactured Homes Center or tour the Marlette Factory in nearby Hermiston. Only improvement we'd recommend for Campground management would be to post a schedule of office hours - such as, "Sorry we missed you! Our Office Hours are: 9 - 10 AM, 1-2 PM, and 5-6PM. Please Come Back!"
We had the chance to preview this facility & made reservations to arrive a day earlier than planned. Due to a mix-up, the site we wanted was not vacated. Park Staff bent over backwards to resolve the conflict but, when several hours had passed & the occupants couldn't be reached, we were offered our choice of available sites temporarily & comp' a nite While killing time, we enjoyed lunch at Divots Grill & Sports Bar at the Golf & Country Club. It also had a nice Golf gear shop. Our site was too far from the WiFi antenna atop the Pool House but I was able to get on the Internet with my Verizon Broadband Access. Spouse had no problems getting a strong satellite signal because there were few trees blocking reception. First RV Resort that encouraged RV washing. Luckily we had a long hose required to reach the sewer connection. We were glad to be given an alternate route for coming to & from the Park; local residents know just how to avoid some of the worst traffic congestion. I've kept their makeshift map for future return trips. Park Management could correct our one negative comment: install some lighting around the security key pad post. Approaching the entry gate at night it was difficult to see properly and tires scraped against the cement curb trying to get close enough to reach it.
Neat State Park. Our choice was a moon-shaped pull through sites with water & 50A electric hook ups on the passenger side. No overgrown trees to block satellite or cell phone signals. Lots of small wildlife like jackrabbits. Campground fee included park admission and was well worth it. Really enjoyed our two night stay and visits to the ruins. Flying J located conveniently close just a couple miles west on I-40 @ exit 255. We would definitely return.
Made arrangements on-line but didn't read any definition of "standard" as meaning "no sewer". When I checked site #39 against an old site map I had kept from a previous visit, I contacted the Parks Information System to try for a different site. I had such a negative experience (complete with "change" fees and threatened cancellation fees If I didn't keep the assigned site). For the poor customer service attitude I'm almost upset enough to rate it a 1. However, once I got a call-back from a very polite Park Ranger things started to improve. He was actually on site (not at a call center) & he was able to assure us he'd had a cancellation of a full hook-up site that could accommodate us for the same time-frame & encouraged us to come in, get settled, and come see him at a specific time. I did, he & another Ranger made all the necessary changes on the computer system, I paid the difference for the better site, and went away a much happier camper. This was our second visit to this Park because of family residing in the area but I will consider other alternatives next time.
Price reflects a weekly rate discount. We visited last year at this same time and we were happy to return this year and stay longer. Got our preferred site with the Manager's pre-approval and appreciated staff's hospitality. EZ-in registrations lanes to right of entrance reduce blocking & crowding - an efficient method for checking in. Greatest appeal - easy access to outlet mall shopping, chain restaurants, fast food, coffee, and motel (for your guests who don't have RVs). If you're here for a short stay and a pet owner, you'll love one of the park-like Pet Areas across the street from the first row of pull-throughs numbered 1 through 6 - very convenient for walking the dogs. If you'd prefer not to watch the dogs doing their business, ask for a site away from the pet areas or be prepared to close your curtains, put up your windshield privacy shades, or avert your eyes. WiFi is through RV Access @ $4.95/day or $19.95/wk; the signal was fine once I bypassed the security warning on my computer (RV Access says they do not have a "security certificate" but provides the usual & customary security - that is, you take your chances.). I was able to use my Verizon Broadband to access the Internet. Once we expected guests over the holidays, we rented a picnic table - Park staff delivered and picked it back up promptly. We would return again for relatively short stays
Price reflects 10% discount. A welcomed alternative coming from Las Vegas. Concrete pads narrow for getting large rigs aligned well; pads somewhat high as well. Spouse almost took a fall and could have twisted an ankle stepping off wrong. Water faucet connections annoying - angle of faucet is poor design & jerry-rigged hole in the side is awkward - it was probably the best "fix" one could conceive following a cold snap but there needs to be a better solution. Tested the Wi-Fi & it's OK but used my own Verizon Broadband Access. Weather was windy in the afternoons, cool in the evenings, but a relief from the Las Vegas heat. The Host was the "most". We'd return for another short stay if our route was ever the same.
This is, by far, one of the most relaxing, friendly, laidback small parks we've ever stayed in. Due to circumstances beyond our control we've had to cancel reservations, re-make them, then shorten them, then extend them - all without hassle, much to our relief. The owners & staff make you feel so welcomed, you promise you'll be back - and we promise! Our site was a long, wide paved FHU pad facing the beautiful Klamath River where, sitting out on our patio we could watch the fishermen or just the fish (actually jumping out of the water)! We opted to stay put in the evenings and have our dinner at their on-site restaurant all 3 nights of our stay - it was a treat - no cooking! Wifi (free) was good but we used our own Verizon Broadband Access. If coming from I-5 south & you'd like another scenic option, get Kathy's road directions that have you exiting about 15 mi. north of Weed at Montague/Grenada, keep right and cross the RR tracks, take an immediate left and follow that road until it turns into Ager Road (A-28); when you reach the "T" intersection; turn right and you're only about 3 miles from the park on a narrow, winding country road.
We stayed here because two nights came free with the Train Ticket to the Grand Canyon. We stayed additional nights and got discounts off those nights as well. We'd return because the Park is new, clean, and relatively easy to get in and out of. Confirm your directions because the routing requires a tight right turn into the street that passes the Hotel, then comes to the Store/Registration Office at the end of the block in back. The left-hand entrance into a spacious parking area for new arrivals is fine. Staff was very nice, however, if you've unhooked your tow, it doesn't hurt to take a quick drive across the street to your assigned site. The person who highlighted the route on our site map had us making a tight zig-zag turn that brought us unnecessarily close to protruding garbage dumpsters on a corner we had to negotiate. We assumed she had never personally driven that particular route in a similar rig so couldn't have appreciated how challenging it was and didn't have to be. When we asked a different staff person why we weren't shown a more direct way, he agreed with us he would have suggested the very route we later saw was ideal.
For the price, this RV Park is a bargain. Although its location atop a hill guarantees winds, the interior roads are paved & cuts down on dirt blowing. Sites are gravel, relatively level, long & roomy. They are constructing a new Office, store, & Rec. Rm. Staff were pleasant & efficient. WiFi was available. Propane service was available so we topped off before checking out. The price was $2.18 when we got there and $2.27 when we left - not bad, considering we've paid much higher! All in all, we felt we got a good value & would definitely return.
It's hard to beat the price (Passport America rate) for a one night stay. We wanted an E'S, in/out, pull-through long enough not to have to unhook our tow vehicle. We got all that convenience and more. Staff (front desk and the escort to site) were welcoming and friendly. Wi-Fi was available for free if you used the office facilities. I signed up with their provider (The Wireless Web) right on line in my own coach and they accepted a credit card for the $3/day fee. My Verizon Broadband access was not available and went into ROAMING mode so I was glad to take what the RV Park had to offer since the signal was good. The property has the look of a former mobile home community and there are still some of those permanent residents adjacent. However, it also seems like the owners/mgmt have plans to redesign certain areas and update them to accommodate Big Rig visitors. For the value alone, we would return for an overnight just to watch this Park's progress. It could be one of the better places to stay and we wouldn't mind recommending them if they continue to offer generous discounts to those just passing through.
Not a bad KOA but out in the middle of nowhere. No Wi-Fi, free or otherwise. Cell phone signal was poor, in "roam" mode so I couldn't use it, either, to access the internet. Our site was a pull-through gravel site to accommodate our big rig, was apparently just recently "created" and had a steep dip at entry and exit: an "odd" set-up (but worked fine for one overnight). We had a good view of the Llano River (what there was of it - water very low). Tent camping at riverside seemed to be very popular. It is a decent park, in a nice setting, and the new owners were friendly and accommodating. However, being fulltimers, we wouldn't want to return for any longer stay because we need daily, no hassle, no added cost access to Wi-Fi and cell phones.
This appears to be a newer KOA and "out of the box". This is one of the better KOA's set up with wide, long, level pull-thru sites, in wide-open spaces w/young trees that didn't block our satellite signal. We had friends from another local park visit us and it was so great to have BBQ dinner served right to our site. We'd return again.
A nice park with mostly pull-thru sites; streets and sites a little narrow for some big rigs - we were definitely glad we had unhooked our tow vehicle up front while checking in. To enjoy WiFi on your site there was a fee of $2.95/hr or $5.95/day so I decided not to use it and connected with my cell phone after 9PM. Staff were all friendly, store was well-stocked with gift items, and the continental breakfast was complimentary - thanks! We might consider going back - offering free WiFi and the USA Today newspaper would make a big difference in our decision.
Continues to be one of our favorite stop-overs, once in the Spring and again in the Fall going to & from the West Coast. Pricey but we requested one of the "big rig" sites and got exactly what we asked for, including WiFi. However, we always seem to return to the places that make us happy. In fact, we changed our original route back just for the privilege of enjoying two of the best restaurants in town: Ariano's and the Mahogany Grille.
We've been back to this park more than once. It's always best to call ahead because the best sites get taken right away. Nonetheless, on this last visit, we got one of the last phone sites and we were very satisfied. We had done the tourist-bit on previous stays; this was just a couple nights to rest well along the road. The park brochure is one of the best sources for directions to get to and from the major highways. Twice I used their directions to reach I-15 North and South and - lo & behold - their suggested routes were easier than ones I had taken in the past! We'll be back.
This wasn't our first visit and we returned after being unimpressed with two other RV parks in the area. This park is well-organized, maintained, and kept up. Although the current WiFi signal did not reach my RV parked in the last row (next to a vacant lot giving an unobstructed view of the mountains), they have plans to improve that situation. The pull thru sites have side-by-side hook-ups so you may have a very close neighbor if/when slides are out. The Management staff's willingness to enforce park rules can be a good thing if your neighbor has failed to use a rubber doughnut on his sewer. We won't return to one of the other competitors park's because we were next to a camper who threaded his sewer hose down the pipe and blocked up the system. Luckily we were just leaving as the mess was being assessed by the unhappy camphost and camper.
This was not our first stay nor will it be our last. On a previous visit we stayed with one of the competitors and this park is better, in fact, we think it is the best in the area. Prices run somewhat higher than one might expect but Polson is a rapidly-developing "resort" destination. We enjoyed a wonderful corner site and appreciated the free WiFi. Be aware that one perimeter of the park provides RV & boat storage and the rest of the perimeter has permanent manufactured homes, many are new and nice. All residents and guests seemed friendly and compatible. We loved it here!
When we first previewed this new park a couple years ago, it was a Passport America campground. It isn't any longer even though their advertisement via this RVParkReviews web site shows a page from a Passport America Directory. Nevertheless, the park was still worth their full asking price. For $20 we got our choice (just drove around and picked the one we preferred) of FHU gravel sites; ours was a 50A back-in, abutting a nicely manicured and watered green belt. We were towards the back of the park so, it's true, I could not get a strong enough signal to get Wi-Fi. It was EZ off/on the I-90 freeway at Exit 59 outside of town. Handy for just an overnight stay; we'd return again.
This is an above-average RV park, we've been here more than once, and we return whenever it's on our travel route. All of the previous good comments apply as to long, level sites; free WiFi; quiet, clean park away from city noise but convenient to shopping. We were surprised to find their store stocked not only the basics for camping comfort but offered a nice selection of the local wines! Since we were there only a short time we were not able to fit in any tours to the local vineyards and gratefully snatched up three bottles. Also, we appreciated the fast, efficient, and friendly staff and the ability to get our motorhome filled with propane gas as we pulled out of the park. It's a keeper!
This is a good park with overnighters parked on the upper level farthest from the noise of frequent trains. Sites are paved and mostly level but roads are somewhat narrow with tight turns. This wasn't our first stay but on previous trips we didn't hook up the tow vehicle until we were on a straightaway. With our big rig that is the best decision for us and we made the mistake this past trip of not sticking to what worked in the past. Also, WiFi wasn't mentioned at check-in and I forgot to ask. But my signal showed the service is RV Access and past experience required the customer to register with them and pay per 24 hour period at about $5. I opted not to use the WiFi that one night stay because I knew the next Park offered it free!
This is just a great Park! It's our second visit and we had to call on Jan. 2nd to get a reservation to arrive Aug. 21st and even that early we didn't get any of our first four choices of site. However, we liked what we ended up with plus the Park has upgraded services since last year - they now have free WiFi and I was able to get a fairly decent signal at least once daily. They ask for customer feedback and the only things I could think of were personal preferences: a) provide Propane gas service and b) provide a USA Today newspaper stand.
This park started out being our 3rd choice (couldn't get what we needed at the first, didn't care for the 2nd) but ended up being our best choice. We liked it so much after just one nite, we went into the Front Office the next day and converted from a 3-wk stay to a monthly - and saved money, despite having to pay our electric usage! We liked our wide "premium" site with its glimpse of a water view and managed to eke out a strong enough WiFi signal at least once each day because we were close to the Front Office where the antenna was. The staff was friendly and helpful and bathroom and laundry facilities were kept clean. We had already decided we'd return next summer if we could get our same site back, however, they are converting several more sites to Park Models. One of the permanent guests across from us has been scheduled to move to our site after us due to his row of spaces being converted.
This is a neat park with a wonderful choice of paved, landscaped sites. The Mgr worked well with us to assign a site he felt would likely get us a satellite signal for my spouse (and we did). However, I really hoped to get a WiFi signal at my site and was never able to. There are "hot spots" nearest the Office but I eventually just toted my laptop to the laundry room and got on the Internet by phone. Unfortunately the local weather was suffering under record highs we couldn't cope with so we asked for and got 3 days cancelled - with no hassle. For the good customer service attitudes shown by the Staff, it deserves high marks and we would return again another time.
This park is a great value at a weekly rate of $125 for a paved pull-thru site with instant phone. It has no-frills landscaping but some residents were watering their own little patch of grass. The weather was pleasant the whole week and a short drive to the Henry Estate Winery in nearby Umpqua was a treat. The reservation system is not computerized and manually-kept entries made for some confusion upon arrival (someone already in our reserved site). However, the nice gentleman who checked us in ("Fred") calmly found us an even better site and made us feel right at home. We'd definitely come back again - they plan to add WiFi soon.
A first class RV Park w/choice of newer, long pull-through sites, paved patios, nice low-growth landscaping & no trees to block SAT signal; Wi-Fi $5 fee but good for 1 year at any of the Premier parks; useful coupon in brochure for discount on gas at nearby Fuel-n-Go Station. We'd return but would try to get site farthest away from freeway noise; water pressure can be low late nights probably due to lawn sprinkler schedule. Park has small pond surrounded by sites where you can opt to park facing in or out but: be aware, goose dropping abounds!
Spacious, roomy, longer sites than usual, a very nice place to stay. Stayed 1 wk & was placed in Row C of pull-thrus convenient to Office, Club House, Pool, bathrooms, etc. Problem: lots of foot traffic thru any vacant site near us because most direct route to facilities. We'd return but would ask for a row farther away. They're expanding the back of the Park so it'll eventually have even more space. WiFi have some problems but park gives a week's free coupon.
Not a bad park for a short stay. The "G" row pull-thru sites gave a view of the mountains & a hint of the Arches (Arches Natl Park is a Must-See). When we checked in no one told us they now have (free) WiFi - I discovered the signal was strong when I turned on my computer. Called the Office for the "code" but, for security reasons, had to go back into the Office and have them give me the access code. The Park does not seem to have the usual requirement to use a boot/coupler on the sewer hose so clueless campers next to us must have threaded about three feet of their sewer hose down. The next morning they reported their sewer backed up & didn't seem to believe the camp host when he pointed out the proper way to avoid problems when campers uphill empty their black tanks prior to departure. We probably wouldn't stay here again.
Decent, friendly, well-managed park. Experienced Workampers keep returning season after season so must like the owners/mgrs. Asked for & got ned site of Big Rig row but WiFi (free) signal seemed to be weaker when more RVs were in spaces between our site and the Office. Sudden wind gusts kept awnings in most times. Winds from a certain direction reminded us of the pastoral setting with horses in the fields surrounding us. Still, we stayed 2 wks and enjoyed the park's hospitality and complimentary popcorn!
My husband & I wanted to preview this park for future; made the mistake of driving thru with our tow vehicle (without first stopping at the Front Office) & found 2 people blocking our exit; got a stern lecture on trespassing on private property; I had flashbacks of Deliverance but chatted to try to bring down the tension; left with her offer to come back for their "Special" and they're looking for Workampers, too! Sorry, Dear - not even. If we missed out on any other great things about this park, we'll never know because I was scared witless by the welcoming committee! We won't be back with our RV. Stayed with KOA!
