We were looking forward to this campground because it looked like it was right on the water. We're on a 6-month trip and don't plan too far ahead so we weren't surprised when we didn't get a waterfront spot (we booked that morning), but waterfront wasn't really waterfront anyway. There were a lot of reeds and bushes blocking the water view. The only thing that the proximity to the water really did was guarantee that there were a lot of mosquitoes around. We ended up with site #9 in Area 2, which is the loop that has water and electric but no sewer. Our spot was on an end and fairly level. However, a lot of the spots in this loop were not level. Our neighbors were fairly loud and stayed up late talking outside around the campfire (not the park's fault, but still impacted our experience). There were also a lot of rules that seemed unnecessary. We would probably stay here again if we were in the area and needed an overnight, but otherwise wouldn't seek it out.
This is a random little city park in downtown Hermann. There was only one other RV there and payment is done on the honor system. It was quiet and convenient and we enjoyed our no-frills stay. If you stop here be sure to walk up the street to the Stone Hill Winery. Definitely worth a trip!
We LOVED this campground. We stayed here for an entire week and wish we could have stayed longer. It's clean, the sites are spacious, the staff are friendly and welcoming, there are walking trails nearby and it's convenient to just about everything you could need. We spent one night at another campground in the area and just weren't happy there so we did a little searching and came across this one and ended up moving. We've been on the road for 3 1/2 months and this is one of our favorites!
We overnighted here while heading east on I-90 out of Seattle. It's a nice quiet park with good views of the Columbia River. It was a bit windy at times, but otherwise really great. We had a really nice pull-through site and liked how much space is in between each site. We would stay here again.
This is a really nice state park. We stayed here for three nights while visiting relatives in Scranton. The staff were friendly and helpful. We have a 36' RV with a toad and there were several spots that would have worked for us. We spent two nights in the "Maple Lane" loop, but then had to move to "Fox Run" for the last night because Maple Lane was being closed for the season. We preferred Maple Lane because it was quieter and more remote, but Fox Run was nice too. There are lots of great hiking trails, the lake is beautiful and the park is pretty convenient for getting into Clarks Summit, Dunmore, etc. We would stay here again.
For as large as this campground is, it was really quiet. We had a pull-through on Loop B and when we got there we expected it to be noisy because there were so many other campers in the park. But it was a really peaceful, convenient spot to stay for the night and enjoy the park. We would stay here again.
We rate this park as a 4 in terms of facilities. It seemed like a lot of money to pay $23 for no facilities whatsoever. Camping at this park means boondocking. However, we rate this park as an 8 for its trails and scenery. Hence, our overall rating of '6', we averaged those two numbers. There were some really nice walking trails, the bathrooms were clean, the rivers were pretty. But there were no hook-ups and the pull-through sites were basically part of the road. In most cases there wasn't even a little patch of grass or anything separating the pull-through sites from the road. We lucked out by getting spot number 17 down at the end of the road and ended up staying for a few nights. If we had been in one of the other spots we probably would have only stayed for one. We would stay here again if necessary, but not one of our favorites.
This was our first RV park experience, ever. It was recommended to us by our RV driving instructor and we stayed here at the beginning of a 6-month RV adventure. We knew at the time that it was a really nice park with really nice owners, but now that we have been on the road for a full month we know just how special Columbia Falls RV park is. We are now on our 31st night on the road and our 8th state and haven't found anything that even comes close to Columbia Falls RV park. The grounds are immaculate, the laundry facility is clean, the owners are friendly, it's in a convenient location, it's dog-friendly, etc. The list could go on and on. Bottom line: you should stay here. We wish every park was this nice. Thank you Larry and Karla!
