This is a pretty nice park in the middle of a very harsh desert environment. We only stayed two nights, but were assigned a level gravel pad with shade trees and an adjacent asphalt pad with a picnic table and plenty of room for our lawn chairs. Amenities at the park included an indoor pool, tennis courts, and shuffleboard (which we did not use), a nice "put and take" library in the laundry room and a hot tub (both of which we did use). The office staff were quite helpful when we had a minor equipment problem upon departure. This facility is very convenient to Joshua Tree National Park. Internet service was acceptable. We were able to pick up a good selection of broadcast TV channels. Verizon worked well at this location. We would be happy to stay here again.

We had a great time at this unique RV park and would be happy to visit again. We were granted a Good Sam discount and our 40' RV was assigned a fairly level gravel site which backed onto a lovely creek. There was plenty of space for our tow car and outdoor chairs. A picnic table was provided. Pull-thru sites are available, but are not as nice as the creek-side spots. A short walk up the hill from the RV park is the Merry Widow health mine. Gold, silver, zinc and uranium were previously mined at this location, but now it (along with several other mines in the area) is known as a "health mine" where folks come to take a series of hour-long treatments. There seems to be a rather dedicated clientele, with many yearly repeat customers camping and taking treatments. We were allowed a free walk-through of the mine, and noted a monthly state check of the mine water quality was in progress. A highlight of our visit here was the weekly Wednesday night potluck, where we shared in a delicious feast and met some of the fascinating people drawn to this area. A nearby gravel road which passed through some national forest service land proved great for jogging. A piano and other amenities were provided in the large recreation hall (where the potluck dinner was held). Guests are also reportedly welcome to use the cooking facilities here. Internet service was included with our site rental, and worked quite well in conjunction with an external antenna.

This park features a wonderful view of the Cut Bank River canyon, with hoodoos (interesting rock formations) and a view of a former Lewis and Clark Expedition campsite. Park owner is very friendly and helpful. Cable TV worked well, with many channels available. Internet service was better than average (however, we used an external antenna for best connection). Sewer connections are not available at individual RV sites, although there is a dump station near the park entrance. The gravel sites with grassy areas for the picnic tables are fairly narrow and not particularly level. Most seemed to be pull-through sites with plenty of room for tow vehicles. The entrance of the park is located in an industrial-looking area where municipal maintenance equipment seems to be stored. We enjoyed exploring around the park and along the riverbank. We would happily visit this park again during its mid-April to mid-October season.

Good for an overnight. However, there were two problem black bears in the park because trash was not secured in a bear-proof dumpster. The Internet only worked in a small area next to the office, but picnic tables under a tent were provided for tech users. This park featured a duck pond.

This is a very low-key park with mostly long-term residents in parked travel trailors. Manager was quite helpful in getting us set up with full hookups and 50 amp service, and we loved the middle of the forest feel with 100 foot pines all around. An area-wide power outage just before our arrival may have caused some problems with the park WiFi. However, this was fixed and we had a strong signal after that. Our favorite feature of this location was a nearby Rails to Trails gravel path which could be accessed directly across the road from Timberline Park and went for miles in each direction. We stayed one week and would happily return.

We made this reservation by accident, thinking we were talking by phone with another campground with similar name. If we had seen it first, we probably wouldn't have tried to stay there, but we would have missed out on a good experience. Most of the long-term residents in quite elderly trailers seem to be working class folks. All were friendly, and camp hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were assigned a nice level grass site with full hookups, a picnic table and plenty of room for our tow vehicle. The park has limited amenities, and the trash cans were filled to overflowing several times during our week-long stay. However, there is a 9 hole golf course affiliated with the park where guests can rent a cart and golf all day for just $10. Salt Creek RV Park is a very casually run operation (cash or check only with no deposit down and an equally casual reservation system). However, it is very convenient to the Olympic National Park, and met all our needs. WiFi was included with our $105 plus electric weekly rate -- and it worked pretty well in the early morning hours.

This was a nice park with a lovely woodsy atmosphere. Staff kept the grounds immaculate (even to the extent of stamping "KOA" in the sand for a cigarette disposal receptacle). We were granted permission to have mail delivered during our stay, and even successfully received a needed part for our RV. We were only able to reserve a site with full hookups for part of our stay, so were forced to move to another site with no sewer partway through the week. The move was not difficult and both gravel sites were fairly level. We enjoyed the pool and can report that the bathroom and shower facilities were convenient and clean. This park does offer recycling. WiFi was pretty good, but our Verizon phones hardly worked at all from this location. We found the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. We would be happy to stay here again.

Our favorite thing about this park was the paved hike/bike path around Diamond Lake (across the road). We were assigned a gravel pull-thru site with full hookups. There were lots of trees, but no problems with maneuvering. Mosquitoes were quite active during our June visit. Groceries were rather limited in the area, but Crater Lake was quite close.

This is one of the most attractive and well-maintained RV parks we have stayed in during our travels. However, it is also one of the most expensive, and very rule oriented. For example: even though the RV spaces are huge, no tow vehicles are allowed to park there. "Approved" parking areas are limited and available only on a "first come-first served" basis. Our reservation was apparently not processed at first, but luckily there was still space when I called to question why I had not received an email confirmation. The park Internet worked great and a local newspaper was delivered to our door each day.

We really enjoyed this park! All sites are nicely landscaped with plantings and partial fencing for privacy, and common areas feature ponds with waterfalls, fish and statuary. Our site overlooked a multi-level "friendship garden." We were easily able to carry our kayak from our site to the park dock at the base of the garden, and thoroughly enjoyed paddling both directions on the lake/river. Harmony Lakeside Park offers moorings for guests with motor boats, and also rents small boats as well. The bathrooms have been recently revamped with new tile. They look fantastic! Internet is offered through Tengo, and for the first time in our experience it worked well. Plans are underway for a major park expansion across the road. In additional to 44 new sites, the expansion should feature a pool, playground, several bocce courts and a dog run. The owners and their daughter run this park in tip-top fashion. We would happily stay here again.

This park is located down a rather tricky looking hill along the banks of the Yellowstone River. We did not have any trouble getting our 40 foot RV down the hill and into our space. The park seems to be well managed (in fact we were notified by phone when our mail arrived before we did). We were assigned a level, gravel, pull-through space with full hookups and a picnic table. We did have to park our towed vehicle sideways to fit it in the space. This park does not recycle. Verizon service was OK in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

This park is located in a lovely, wooded setting in the Grand Teton National Park. We were assigned a generous pull-through space with a picnic table. Internet service is almost non-existent in the national park, and our Verizon service could barely pull a 3G signal. This park does recycle. This park is rather expensive, but choice is quite limited in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

We were a bit disappointed with this park. We had reserved a 50 amp pull-through site, and were anticipating services as listed on their web page (which states "60' pull through sites, back-in sites, 30 & 50 amp service, cable TV and free WiFi" plus more). Apparently there are only a few 60 foot pull-throughs, and the park has among the tightest spacing we have ever seen. It took a lot of jockeying to get our 40 foot motor home into the first space we were assigned (it was a pull-through), but we felt exposed in the roadway at both the front and rear (without our tow car attached). When we attempted to hook up services we discovered that the 50 amp receptacle was out of service (and labeled that way inside the cover). The site was level and paved, but also sticky with tar and what appeared to be melted chocolate ice cream. We were offered the option to move and allowed to pick a new space from about 4 they had available with 50 amp service. After a long day of travel we opted to stay where we were for the first night and move our rig the following day (since we had to take it in for service anyway). It turns out there is an extra charge for cable TV, we were unable to connect to the park Wi-Fi, and the 30 amp receptacle was installed upside down. The next day our new site was much nicer -- still level, no tar and a functioning electrical box -- but our motorhome still hung out into the road at both ends. On the plus side, the young lady at the desk was quite friendly and they keep fresh-baked cookies in the office for guests. We would explore other options before staying here again.

This is a big park with wide grassy, level spaces with gravel pads and picnic tables. There are many amenities, including a nice-looking mini golf course, and puzzles and books available for loan. It is convenient to lots of tourist attractions. This park recycles aluminum cans only. We stayed using Coast to Coast points plus an extra $3 per day for 50 amp service. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice wooded park next to creek and very close to tourist activities in Hot Springs. We visited during the slow early spring season, so got a pleasant spot right on the creek. (We should note there is some road noise from a nearby bridge, but it did not bother us.). Very friendly owner. Fast Internet connection. We would definitely stop here again.

Really nice and well-kept park. Great for overnight stays. Level sites with picnic tables and plenty of grass and trees. Friendly check-in. This park does recycle. Rate reflects GS discount. We would definitely stay here again.
