Nice, small park with friendly staff. Reasonably level concrete pads, but ours had a sharp 3 inch lip from the gravel lead-in to the pad. Quite a bump getting in. Once in, the utilities are strong and base amenities are available nearby.

This is a great score for what you get. This is not a destination park but an on-the-way park. The sites are a little close and there is no patio or picnic table. The sites are long and level, the water pressure is strong and the Wi-Fi is great. We definitely enjoyed the casino and will certainly stay here again when passing through.

The sites were spacious with plenty distance between neighbors. Wi-Fi was only available at the clubhouses, a negative for me. Most interior roads and sites were gravel, but there really wasn't much dust. Sites were level and utilities good. Park was well away from roads - so very quiet. Rate reflects RPI membership.

Very nice park, well kept and nicely landscaped. Front desk was manager knowledgeable and friendly. Lots of amenities. Visiting grandkids loved the pool & hot tub, and game room with pool, foosball, and ping pong. Wifi worked fairly well but sometimes hard to get on and then slow. Sites are level but pretty close to each other. Rate was for a "super-site" which is actually 1 1/2 sites giving parking for your toad. My motorhome with dolly is about 40 feet and took nearly the whole spot so the extra parking was welcome.

How many different ways can you say wonderful? Manicured park with gorgeous flowers and trees. Level, paved sites. Friendly staff. Associated with casino. Rate is weekly rate with military discount. We rate all other parks compared to this one. I only gave a 9 because of weak wifi. When you could connect it was slow. If they added antennas, there would be no possible downgrades. We've been here before and will come again.

This is a wonderful state park. Friendly staff, well maintained, sites level, and bathrooms clean. We had a FHU site which we prefer, but there are just a few of them. If that's what you want, use the online reservation system, but do it early. We were here two weeks and have no complaints. Grandkids visited and enjoyed Ranger talks. We will come here again.

This is a well done park designed to be convenient to the casino. We were told at the park's front desk that the hotel's amenities such as hot tub, work out room, etc. are available to RV customers if interested. The interior roads are wide, the sites are level, the utilities work well and the Wi-Fi is strong. The sites are a little close but they did a good job getting the most possible sites within the total property. This is not a destination resort of itself but a nice part of the casino package.

This place is a jewel. It's a little off the main drag so unless you researched ahead you might not find it. Sites are gravel but level, roads are asphalt paved and smooth. Small park manicured to perfection, it is beautiful. WiFi was strong, electricity stable, and water pressure good. Owner stopped by to introduce himself and promote good will. Rate reflects AARP, AAA discount. We were here for 3 nights and will stay here again.

Stunning park. Sites are in among the redwoods, I found myself just staring at the trees. Some noise from Hwy 101, but not bad. Park manager was very friendly and helpful. Good utilities, strong Wi-Fi. Close to seaside sightseeing. Slight downgrade for tight entry road. Been here before, will come again.

Nice little plain vanilla park. Level, gravel sites, lots of shade trees, well kept pool. Very nice folks in the office. Strong Wi-Fi. Easy access. Rate is Good Sam. Would stay here again.

This park was recently acquired by Colorado River Adventures membership club and the rate reflects that. The last two miles of road prior to the entrance are indeed tight but have obviously been trimmed since the earlier reviews. Go slow, it is do-able. The interior roads are very tight and the pavement occasionally drops off to ruts along the edges. If you have a toad, disconnect inside the entrance, as some of the turns further in are very tight. Virtually none of the sites are level. They range from a gentle slope to "I wouldn't put a tent there!" The pool and its yard are lovely. The staff is very friendly and the new owners are trying very hard to upgrade the place, for example new picnic tables at the sites. Once parked the experience was nice. My score is mainly for the interior park roads.

Very nice state park. We stayed in B loop which was near the amphitheater for the ranger talks. Our grandkids enjoyed that. We were in a water and electric only site, but FHU is available. The rate was $24, but making a reservation online charged an $8 fee. Lots of trees in the park but mostly small ones on B loop. As they grow and get more shady it will get better and better. Site was fairly level once we backed far enough in, and there was lots of room between sites. Park staff were friendly and helpful. We will stay there again.

The park has a lot of potential but the sites looked messy to me. Just needed some landscaping care, weedwacking, trimming, etc. I had to wade through knee high weeds to get to my utility stand. The sites seemed to be a little close together but it they were trimmed they would look a lot bigger. Lots of nice shade trees and the roads were very good for grandkids riding bikes. The playground also needed some maintenance. Office staff were friendly. Daily rate was high for what we got.

This is a very attractive, well maintained park. The main entrance turn in is a short radius if you are a MH with toad. The interior roads are a little tight with some pretty serious speed bumps, so go slow. Not many trees but our site was level. The huge pool is fed by a hot spring so is quite warm but our grandkids loved it. Our trip highlight was the outdoor salmon bake dinner put on by the Native American group followed by a beautiful dance demonstration in full costume at the lodge. We would stay here again but hopefully in cooler weather.

This place is a dump: good only for a one nighter on the way somewhere else. It was quiet and the utilities did work well. The entry gate was over a cattle guard made of wood that looked like it was ready to collapse. I was concerned if it would hold my MH. It did, but it was rough and the gravel entry was rough. The sites were long enough so I didn't have to take off my toad. They are trying to sell their hot spring bath (which we did not see) but they apparently spent very little on any other maintenance. It is located on a small highway and was convenient for our trip planning, so we would probably stay here again if that's the way the plan worked out.

How many times can you say fabulous? This park is at the top of our favorites list. For things to do other than the casino there are about 20 wineries in the Umpqua valley region and we are sampling most of them in the week we are staying. We've been here before and will stay again.

The front office staff was very helpful and personable. We got a site across the road (#24) from the riverfront sites which I think was a better deal. Our site was nearly 2 sites big compared to the others which looked awful close to me. The entrance to the park was quite steeply down hill with a sharp turn to the right, almost too sharp for my toad on a dolly. The park Wi-Fi was very slow and iffy, I did much better with my Verizon hot spot. The are many nice shade trees and the utilities worked well. The view on the river was lovely and being a ways out of town made it very quiet. Our rate was Passport America.

Very nice older park with huge trees. Great shade if it's hot out. Long, level gravel site with plenty grassy space in between. Nice office staff. Utilities worked fine. Some train noise if you are a light sleeper, I am not. Didn't bother me. I would stay here again.

Very nice, well maintained park. Our rate was with AAA discount. Our experience was excellent compared to some of the previous reviewers. Our Verizon internet connection was excellent. Our DirectTV connection worked well so we were not dependent on park cable TV or Wi-Fi. There were a lot of mosquitoes but I don't think that's the fault of the park. We drove through several of the campgrounds inside Yellowstone and I would not pick any of them over this one. This is a great park with excellent access to Yellowstone.

This is a very nice park with long pull throughs (75 feet) widely spaced and shaded with nice trees. My GPS wasn't sure where it was, but the map on their web site was accurate and easy to follow. The roads and sites are dirt/gravel which could be exciting if it were raining but ours was very level and well cared for. We only stayed one night on the way elsewhere, but I would definitely stay again. The front office staff was very pleasant and helpful.

Wonderful park. Clean, well maintained, trees, big sites, etc, etc. Very nice, helpful staff. Lead you to your spot and help you park. High pressure water. Fast Wi-Fi. No complaints. On base gas station very close and it has enough space for motorhomes. Will come again.

This is a magnificent park. I agree with the previous reviewers about beauty, cleanliness, and well maintained, with one exception. The sites are flat but not necessarily level. Be prepared to use blocks or have your jacks go to nearly full extension on one end. I would have given the park a 10 but our 30 amp site did not have steady voltage. It varied from 100 to 120 volts and tripped our GFI breaker at least twice. Maybe the 50 amp sites are stronger. We have been there twice and will definitely stay there again. We prefer the Redhead loop since the sites are further apart and we like the many trees. We especially like the new, online reservation system. We used it on the first day it was available and got wonderful next door sites for us and our daughter's family.

Very clean, well maintained park with friendly office staff. We were well spaced with the next RVs but if the buddy sites were used it would be really tight. There were lots of sewer access ports, several on each site, but they were not threaded for the standard elbow fitting. You have to use one of the rubber donut wedges to get a tight fit. They sell them in the store if you don't have one. It was very windy so we stayed an extra day to ride out the storm. Very nice park, we would stay here again.

This is indeed a basic park, thus the average rating. There really isn't much to inspire the "wow" factor. I was able to maneuver my 35' MH with dolly (toad removed) easily enough but a true big rig might be a little tight. It is quiet and the office staff is very friendly. There are several Native American casinos within about 10 miles. This is really not a place where I'd sit outside in my camp chair to read and enjoy the sights.

This place defines remote which can be okay. I got tired of the dirt and dust, though. My toad on a dolly got filthy on the 7 miles of gravel road and we had dust inside the MH also. I got a very unlevel pull through site that was too narrow to use my awning once I parked to avoid the Joshua tree. The office staff is very friendly which was a good thing because the Wi-Fi is very iffy, off more than on. I had to get help from the staff which included getting access to their private network. I don't think I'll be back here again, too remote, too dusty, poor Wi-Fi, no table, no fire pit, narrow slot.

Yes, this park is remote but that can be an attraction. The sites are huge. My daughter and family joined us with their trailer and I've been in parks where there would have been another RV between us. The pool was great for my grandsons and there was plenty room for them to ride their bikes, fly their kites, and walk their dog. There was no playground per se but there was a grassy area for them to fly their rubber band powered planes. The huge sites are very level and the utilities worked well. I had trouble with the Wi-Fi in the clubhouse but probably my fault. The office staff was great and there were planned activities every night. We will stay at this park again.

Park was remote, far enough out of town that it was very quiet and dark. The sites were almost all back-in but big enough for easy maneuvering. Roads paved, sites gravel/dirt but very level. Office lady very nice, informative. No pool, no picnic table, no fire pit but near to casino if that's your thing. It is ours and it was a very nice, new, Native American establishment. We will stay at this park again.

This is probably the top of our all time list of RV parks. Great people, wide - paved sites, lovely landscaping, indoor pool, associated casino, etc, etc. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is that I couldn't make the Wi-Fi work. We have stayed there before and we will stay there again.

A pretty nice park with level gravel sites, paved drives and lush, well developed shade trees. I marked it as not family friendly because the manager warned me several times to keep close track of my 8 and 10 year old granddaughters because kids have caused damage in the park. The Wi-Fi would not allow my email to operate. Basic Internet was slow but OK. We would stay there again as a one-nighter on the way somewhere else.

Like all KOAs we have stayed in, this is an older park with very tight sites. It is very well kept but they advertise no extra space for cars. If you tow and your car won't fit in your site with you, you are stuck. There are no parking spaces or parking lot. The whole campground is built on the side of a fairly steep hill so every square foot is at a premium. Very nice pool and it is a good location on the west side of Yosemite if you're visiting the park.

Nice park with friendly people. Very nice swimming pool. Unfortunate lack of shade. Trees are there but very small. Within a mile of a Camping World. Would camp there again.

It is all asphalt but very well kept. The all-back in spots are perpendicular to the drives which made the effort a little harder but do-able if you take your time. The trees are nice and the proximity to the bay is very nice. The primary draw for the park is location to Sea World and other attractions. We would stay there again.

We found this to be a rather shabby, old park. All the hookups worked okay and the Wi-Fi was usable, so it was suitable for one night. But the roads were tight and the sites narrow. We were parked right next to a permanent resident who was doing his best imitation of a junk yard. Not very pleasant to see out my window.

This is about as good as it gets: lake view, shade trees, friendly staff, very good Wi-Fi, quiet. Like the name implies there are numerous wineries nearby to sample and the old town Grapevine main street is loaded with nice restaurants and shops. The only possible downgrade is no swimming pool. Would definitely stay here again. The published rate is $42 for premium site but there are many discounts. Ours was for seniors (62 or more).

This is a tight, little, older park with mostly permanent residents. The owners are friendly and helpful. Big rig capable depends on how big. Our motorhome plus toad on a dolly is 60 feet and we took up the whole slot with almost none left over. Trees, when they get leaves, will be attractive but very close to the sites so watch closely when pulling in. It was okay for a one nighter and the only other park I saw in Sweetwater looked like a parking lot, so you don't have many choices. A billboard said a new one is opening next year.

This is a great stop on the way somewhere else, which is what we did for one night. The sites are reasonably level and the pull throughs are plenty long enough for my 35 foot MH with toad on a dolly. The Wi-Fi is especially strong and fast and the manager is very knowledgeable and friendly. I only gave it a 6 because it is not fancy and the roads & sites are dirt/gravel but take it for what it is, a one nighter on the way down the road.

Good area to park and register. Office staff friendly and efficient. Access roads paved and well maintained. Could have been a little wider. All pull-through sites have concrete pads and grass and a well placed tree for shade. Very nice central building with store and recreation facilities. Our MH is 35 feet and I felt if I was any bigger it might have been a challenge to navigate some of those sites. They are close and the decorative boulders do limit maneuverability. Gorgeous park, nearly perfect.

Agree with the "rustic" comment. Nice little park for one night on the way somewhere else. Sites were a bit narrow and close but it was far enough from the freeway to be quiet. The manager was very friendly. Our automatic satellite tracker could not pick up any TV signal.

This was probably a great park when RVs were smaller. The sites were very close and narrow. There was trees and shade and an ice cream social in the evening: lots of good things and friendly people. But the sites were small and that puts a damper on the rest of the park, I'm afraid.

This is an excellent park. All hookups and wifi worked very well. The indoor heated pool was very nice. The only complaint is that sites are narrow and close together. The driveways are tight. It is in a great location across the the street from the beach.

We were very impressed with this as a state park. The sites were very large and level. As the other reviews say, the trees on the park are new and just growing. But the whole park is located in heavy forest with many hiking trails. It was very quiet and there was a playground for the grand kids. We will definitely visit again. The only disappointment was the wifi did not work at all.

It is an older park. There are lots of trees and nice shade, but dirt spots. It would be a mess if were raining. Sites are wide. The Asphalt drive is VERY bumpy. You must go very slow or you will damage something or shake something loose. Good for one night but I wouldn't stay for a long period.

Very tight park. Driveways and roads are just big enough. Spots are very tight. Roads paved, sites gravel. Well maintained. Picnic tables at every site. Very good WiFi. Good trees and shade. Pretty expensive.
