There are multiple areas in this park, some in the trees, some in the open. We were in the trees area and liked it; it's further back from the highway, shaded, but the sites are narrower, some are short. But we parked our 27' RV without major issues. Our neighbors had a 34' 5th wheel and we both were able to park our trucks behind our rigs. The utility hook-ups (side by side) were a bit awkward and that was a minor issue with setting up. A longer water hose would have helped. The workers there are very friendly and helpful. Super nice facilities, ultra clean and pleasant; laundry on site. It's a nice places to gather, sit and talk with tables and chairs in a courtyard. Didn't try their breakfast. I enjoyed the pool which was very clean and even warm. Too bad they don't have a hot tub. They are a bit pricey but a better deal than other parks nearby. Paid $39 and change with tax and discount. Would be happy to stay here again.

Old park but still good. We backed into a "water view" site but the view was barely visible through the dense trees. Although we could hear the seals barking during the night! We paid cash and got a "discount" of $5 off the credit card rate. Quiet park worked just fine for us for overnight. No amenities to speak of and $30 seemed a bit steep. Overpriced, but if we had to, I'd stay here again. There's not much else to choose from in the area.

Interesting park with lots of train decor and real train cars to sleep in. There was no pool available in November. The sites are gravel and not very level but good access. Has Wi-Fi and cable TV. The bathrooms are in a building labeled Laundry which was confusing, and the 5 digit code didn't work on one side of the building which was confusing. But once inside everything was very clean and nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful; they have an interesting store here too, with souvenirs, snacks, small selections of groceries and lots of train stuff: cute. There are trains within hearing distance but not obtrusive. I'd be happy to stay here next time.

Great park, good price, bad location. We were in their "Exclusive Overnight Area" with only one site and a few feet of road (around the end of the row of sites) between us and the railroad tracks and highway. The trains ran all night long and felt like they were right next to us, which they practically were! They had a very nice park, lots of monthly guests, lovely hot tub and pool. The women's bathroom had showers with no bench or even dressing area, just the shower pad. I'd gladly pay more for peace and quiet.

This is an old park. All sites are concrete pads perpendicular to the road. The pads are double so you park your trailer on one side and your truck on the other side, if that is your set up. There is not much room between the rows of sites so that backing in at 90 degrees is very difficult. We have a 27' 5th wheel and barely made it work. The park attendant came to the site with us to make sure we didn't use the empty site ahead of us to line up better! The price is high but there is little around, so no competition. We could barely see the ocean in the distance over the dunes and golf course, but we could hear the waves during the night which was pleasant. I doubt that we'll ever be in the area again, but if so I'd really plan to stay elsewhere just because of the difficult parking. Better for class B or even smaller class C rigs.

So glad we found this place. Very good location for visiting many parts of Seattle and reasonable prices. We paid just under $30/night on a weekly rate including taxes and extended at the daily rate of $30 plus taxes. Indoor pool and nice tiled hot tub. Propane available on the grounds at regular prices, not super inflated. Location is just off of I-90 one exit east of the I-405 interchange. We had a site that was the first in the row at the end by the office and facilities building, so we were farthest from the road noise and had only slight noise and couldn't hear it over the heater running. But sites on the end of the rows nearest the highway would get much more impact from the road noise. We asked for a site with a good Wi-Fi signal and that happened to also get us away from the road noise. Free Wi-Fi was busy but workable. Cable TV was basic plus some movies that were not available while we were there. The pool and hot tub were a nice plus. Well run establishment with security codes and lots of rules posted, a few long-term guests but not really permanent residents. Nice clean laundry, restrooms and showers. There is no grass inside the fence, but there is grass outside the entrance to use for dog walking. It is true that it is all pavement but no mud! The sites are lined on the pavement and no room between sites, to maximize occupancy. But they gave us a site that we pulled through from an empty site into our site and had no access issues with our truck and 28' 5th wheel; parked the truck next to the trailer and had shrubs on one side, a plus with the end site! Will gladly stay here again for good price, good access, location and facilities even though the sites are tight and the ambiance is urban. Otherwise we're paying 50% more without free Wi-Fi, no cable, no hot tub. I'll deal with the road noise and the pavement just fine.

Great location in Boise, very convenient. Nice park has been updated from old-style side-by-side hook-ups, so you now get both sides of the utilities. We parked our 27' 5th wheel in one side and our truck in the other side which worked great as we were here to visit family. The park has no cable TV so had to rig up antenna etc., to get local channels. Good Wi-Fi signal. Very clean park, excellent bath house with showers and huge laundry area, lots of machines. Well run establishment and relatively quiet with pretty views of the greenbelt along the river. Access was easy off of a main avenue but you do have to go through a few miles of city streets from the interstate. We used a Garmin to navigate to the coordinates listed in the Trailer Life Directory. We will gladly choose this park over the one near the airport which had heavy road noise last time we were in Boise. Our cost was $28.42 with GS discount.

Great overnight stop for us. This park is in deep trees so no possible way to get satellite reception; no cable at sites; no Wi-Fi. We used site A2, one of the first sites we encountered, a pull-through that was a bit difficult to level but we managed to get our 27' 5th wheel level with 4 boards (2 under each wheel on one side). We had some distant train and road noise but not too intrusive and it wouldn't keep us from staying here again. Next time we might try some pull-through sites that are more on the way out than on the way in and hope they are easier to level. At $16 a night this we think this was a very good deal.

Arrived here today; campground is as expected from their website, not large but not too busy this time of year. This is a great location on the waterfront and within walking distant to shops and restaurants. Sites are gravel and grass, level, more spacious than they look on the website map; plenty of room for our 27' 5th wheel and our truck either in front or beside. Our site has no picnic table but there are tables along the waterfront if we wanted to go over there another 150 feet. By phone reservation (extra $7) gave us a reserved site number which is not one of the premium sites but has a nice view of the waterfront in two directions, site #327. Paid off-season rate, no discounts, no weekly rate but monthly is available. Showers, restrooms and laundry have a combination secure entry; Wi-Fi is workable but not a strong signal at our site; cable TV works ok. For the price this is good for a well-run park, great location in a busy, pricey town.

Great location! The campground is inside the National Park boundary and on the bus route, with the Blue Bus stopping at the park's check-in hut. There are benches and shade at the bus stop. Buses run about every 10-15 minutes most of the day and evening, less often very early and very late. The reservation system is remote from the site, centralized and combined with the system to reserve lodge rooms. The reservationist admitted that he did not know much about RVs. We called 2 weeks in advance and availability was limited; he got us reservations for 3 nights but not all in the same site and 2 nights were in a short site, barely long enough for our trailer, park the truck elsewhere. But upon arrival, the check-in staff said that they had reviewed our reservation and got us in a long site for all 3 nights, much better! I had called the on-site phone number (no reservations accepted there) to alert them about our split reservation and it really paid off for us. The park is sparsely vegetated and has little shade but the sites are good, level and all pull-through! Directions to the campground were poor and signage is also poor. The only saving grace was the park map which they gave us at the entrance gate, and by the time I got to the right page and got oriented we had missed the first turn-off, but we found our way round-about and had no issues. The restrooms were adequate but no showers; for those you have to walk over to Mather campground (which doesn't have hook-ups), about a 10 minute walk, plus the showers there take coins, so we used our own. The sewer hook-up is not convenient to keep hooked up to because there is a curb that the hose has to go over, but we usually use our holding tank so it didn't matter to us. I hope we can go back soon. This was so much better than some National Parks for travelers with a 5th wheel trailer and truck. I did not give it a 10 because of no showers and no electronic services of Wi-Fi nor cell phone, of course no cable TV either but a fabulous location to visit the Grand Canyon.

We camped here with 3 grandkids, paid $1 extra for each. We called ahead because we were to arrive somewhat late but the check-in was very thorough and friendly. The park is close to I-40 but surprisingly quiet. We could hear train whistles in the far distance but they were not disturbing. We did buy some milk at the store at very elevated prices for a quart size only but at least it was fresh. We used our $2 off per adult coupon the next day at the Meteor Crater. The park was nice, roomy, quiet and friendly. The security gate was an added plus, as were the exceptionally clean and roomy restroom units, each with it's own shower.
