This park deserves a 10, but it does not have amenities like a pool and spa, which is important to many. This is a family owned park, the owners are on site and are "friendly" and helpful. The rest rooms and showers are clean, the pull through sites are "stacked" which means you may have to park behind another RV and back out if the RV in front of you does not leave before you. There are sites with grass, most have nice trees that give you shade. Great view of MT. Shasta. We have stopped here before and will in the future.
Nightly rate was $7.50 (senior discount). There a few sites with electric available for a higher cost. We did not have reservations and were told to get there "early" and we should not have a problem. The Park Service failed to tell us that arriving early did not mean a darn thing. Xanterra Park Resorts runs the campground (as well as everything else) and you can not register for a camp site until 1pm. The girls at the kiosk wouldn't even talk to you, except to say "check in is 1pm". When asked are there sites available, they replied "at 1pm. If the Park Service would have told us that, we could have stopped and enjoyed the scenic views and such, instead of heading straight to the campground. I have been camping for a long time and have never been turned away when there are camp sites available. Instead everyone is forced to wait until 1pm, then line up and wait to talk to this person, not knowing if there is a site available and you just wasted 3 hours waiting to hear that. It is not like the Xanterra employes were cleaning the sites, raking them and picking up trash, because they did not do that. Many sites had trash in them that was obvious to anyone who looked at the site, so why have such a tight policy. Otherwise this is a nice campground, the loops are one way, so if you are in an RV you may have your door facing the road, rather then the camp site (unless you drive the wrong way). The pull throughs can be tricky, some of them have trees that really prevent you putting a trailer or motorhome in them, and they are curved, which makes for some creative parking.
This is a very large campground with asphalt access roads and sites, some of them are "double" which means you pay more, but most of them are deep enough to back up anything you are driving. Some pull through sites near the entrance. There are about 10 loops, I would avoid J loop if you are driving a motor home or pulling a trailer as the sites are more suited for tents. We basically had this campground to ourselves, it is not on the water but there is a ramp close by. This campground is about 4 miles south of Diamond Lake Campground ( both USFS) and is way better for RVs. There is a paved bike/hiking path that goes to the Resort area.
Our rate reflects the Senior Passport. Located 5 miles from Sisters City on Hwy 242, it is a short, straight drive into town. This is a campground, pit toilets (which were clean), no showers, with a dirt access road and sites. Most sites were pull through, sort of a loop along side of the access road. We have a 28' TT, easy to get in most sites, but there are trees and branches to watch out for. Full price still makes this a better location to the Sisters if you don't mind dry camping. We would return here.
While this park is close to town, bike trails, and is a very pretty area, I would not return. The park road was dusty, people traveled at a pretty fast speed, which was unsafe for the campers and created a lot of dust. The site cost was based on 50 amp, 30 amp, water, sewer, tent site and senior discount. Pick a site based on amps, or location? Most sites close, some to close. The sites have a table and fire ring. The sites were dusty, the type of loose dirt that creates a dust at each step. No cable, no Wi-Fi, in total not worth the money, except for the location. We found a USFS campground (Cold Springs) 5 miles from town that was a gem, of course no hookups and pit toilets. Fill up your potable water prior as the campground has a water pump, not faucets.
Rated a 10 as a campground, it is not a RV Park. The sites have electric and water, sewer is at the dump station, none the less this is a beautiful spot. Lots of grass, long back in sites (asphalt) with table and fire ring. Older facilities, but the toilets and showers were clean and well maintained. It is nice to have grass instead of dirt at a campground. There is a nice path with a couple of different loops along the river. A great place to stay and see the area.
This is a campground, the sites are between the road and the creek. Pretty much used by locals as it is off the beaten path, which could be a good thing or a bad thing. We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed the stay, except for a couple of unrelated incidents by locals, but the camp host quieted things down. Nice sites, not level, beautiful area, nice hiking trails. Will return if in the area. Clean toilets, no showers.
When we checked in, no one seemed to know what sites were available. The site we were given was a back in, no problem but I did not want to unhook and that was not option. We called and requested a pull through site which was no issue and we moved to a fairly level site where we did not have to unhook the trailer. The sites are asphalt, grass all around with shade. We had electric and water, a dump station is available. The restrooms were clean as were the showers, just well used as most state parks are. We would stay at the park again.
No cable TV or Wi-Fi, if that is important. Very clean park, not much shade, gravel site--had to level. Really neat park, they have made trails that leave from the park and all return back to the park. You can walk, run, or ride your bike on the trails. Sparkling clean restrooms and showers. We did not use the pool, but it looked very clean.
Our nightly rate reflects the Senior Pass. The sites are mostly pull through, the problem is the road in the loops are one way and the "inside" camp sites of the loop puts an RVs door away from the camp site. To rectify this, people go the wrong way so they can have the door of their RV facing the camp site. Not much of an issue I guess, since the Rangers did not seem to mind. This is a camp ground with flush toilets and a really nice place to stay while in Glacier.
The name means overpriced for us. It was the only place in the area with space. At $38.50 for a gravel ( not close to being level pad in all directions) plus the septic was higher then the pad, not good. The woman if the office was great, gave us a site and off we went. The problem was I could not level my trailer, unless I unhooked and did some serious blocking. The septic was not reachable and uphill. I was given another site, happy with that. Planned on spending a couple of days in the area, but it was hot, the price too much for what we use so we moved on. The price was close to the other park we went to and we would stay here again if we had to. The facility was clean and staff helpful.
Called the park, the owner guided us in and was waiting at the door when we arrived. The owners were super nice and helpful. The park is clean and the stream running through it was just a plus. We would definitely return to this park.
A great place to camp and enjoy the area. The rest rooms and showers are inadequate for the number of campers and lack of staff does not help. The nightly rate reflects the senior discount. We really do like this park, and will return, unless the price continues to go up.
We stayed 3 nights here in our travel trailer (28') and enjoyed the spacious (though a little too open) area between the campsites. There were clean facilities, and clean sites, what Oregon State Parks are noted for. At $21.00 for full hook ups, it is a bargain. Spring Creek, Williamson River, and the Museum gives you plenty of things to see and do. Mosquitoes are near the Williamson River, so the camp sites closest to the river will feel them more then those sites farther away. We stayed in site A-18 which was near the river; had shade and no one behind you.
We spent two nights. The park is well located to see the Bend area. We had site 304 which was asphalt and we had to level the trailer. There was grass on both sides, and a picnic table at every site. We were fortunate not to have our next door neighbors dump at our door step as some of the sites did. I was a clean park and facilities. Down side was the price which included "guaranteed wifi" and cable TV. The wifi was fast, but we could not bring in most the channels the park advertised as having. We will pass this park simply for the cost per night.
This is a campground, not an RV park, my rating is based on what I think of what is a excellent campground. I gave it a 7 simply because it is between a working railroad (with trains going e/b and w/b at all different times of the day) and it being so close to I-84 with all the traffic noise. The trains blow their horns as they approach the river access crossing, it is deafening, but one seems to get use to it if you stay long enough, the same for the highway noise. It is a beautiful, well maintained state park right next to the Columbia River. There are lots of things to do in the Gorge.
We tried to reach this park of I-5, poor signage (like none) caused us to miss the park. We called and received good directions. We were assigned space #176, which was a short space so we were to park in the space next to us (which was even shorter), but someone else was parked there. I parked a space over, not much of an inconvenience since the spaces were not much larger then a regular parking space. The concrete pad was clean and level. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The park was clean, packs the RVs in close and has a lot of monthly residents, which were friendly and their units well kept. We spent one night and would return because the facilities were clean and well kept clean.
The only complaint I had with this park was the sites are way too small. Had we not needed laundry and WiFi we would have passed on this park. However all the RV parks were full and all had small sites. We (a 28 footer) were in site 5, which put us within 3 feet of the rig to next to us. Upon exiting our rig, we had to be carefull not to step on the sewer hookups, about 3 feet from our step. The plus of this park is the cleanliness of the facilities, the restroom and showers were always very clean. The park hosts mentioned by a previous poster were friendly and helpful. We would not stay here again because of the the sites are poorly layed out and extremely close. Having to park your tow vehicle out of sight and away from your site is a negative as well. We would stay at the Clallam County Park in the Dungeness Wild Life Refuge Area, which was very clean and spacious.
We stayed in the upper loop, pit toilets and no showers. The toilets were clean, but they are what they are. Very pretty area, had a view of the ocean if we walked up the embankment. No wind, sites well spaced, but open.
We arrived after hours (had a reservation) and were directed by a park ranger to our site. We were specifically advised not to use a generator during non-generator hours. I appreciated the concern for quiet time, only wish the ranger would come by during those hours to enforce it. Camp host site was the most uninviting camp site I have ever seen. We were here 7 days and not sure what he did. Our refrigerator stopped working, I went to the SP entrance for information, she gave me phone book, not helpfull at all. Called Morro Dunes RV and a gentleman came out and repaired the refrigerator. He was honest and fixed the problem for a very fair price. If you need RV repairs while in the area, call them.
This is a nice campground, it deserves a 10 but it does not have the RV amenities. We chose a electric/water site, there are full hookup sites available. All the sites are pull thrus with covered tables and fire rings. The roads and sites are asphalt. There is a little lake which you can take a non power boat on and the Colorado River is next to the campground. Restrooms were clean, showers are a dollar for 4 minutes. We would stay here again.
This park is not what it is advertised to be. It is on a busy street with no view. That said, the staff was very friendly and we were escorted into our site. The restroom/showers were clean and air conditioned. The park was clean and well maintained. We were in site A1 which was a back in site (they charge more for a pull thru) which was next to the street. We enjoyed the live band from the biker bar across the street and especially enjoyed the noise of the loud pipes as the bikers roared off into the sunset (or night). The music did stop at a reasonable hour, but the traffic noise did not. If you want to pay $40.00 a night for a tight space in a clean park this is the place for you. We will not return to this park.
The only reason this park is not getting a 10 is it did not have cable. Friendly staff, clean park, wide sites. The restroom/showers were clean and had air conditioning. It was off the highway, easy on and off. My site was on the grass, it was level. We would stay there again.
We called the park and the woman (owner) who answered the phone was very nice, she gave us directions to the park and her friendly demeanor was the reason we continued to the park. The park is located behind a Super 8 motel and some other businesses. Behind the Park is an Air Force Base, which was quiet on the day we were there. The on site manager was friendly and escorted us to our site. The park was nearly full of "monthly s", those that follow their work and live in RVs. The trailers were all kept up as well as the sites. The owner came by to ask if we needed anything. Something you do not find often, air conditioned restrooms, which were very clean. It was obvious the rest rooms were not to be used by the "monthly s". No picnic table and the price was high, but we would stay there again.
We paid $19.00 the first night and were discounted to $14.00 a night after that for being over 62, and we were from out of state. A very nice state park with shade sites. We had site 26 which was in the shade and on loop A. We were on the river and had plenty of room. The only draw back to the site was it was muddy from recent rains. The grassy sites are closer together on loop B. Free Wi-Fi is available at the visitor center. We prefer this type of camping, having electric and water hookups in a state park is something we do not have in Ca. The only negative comment is the restrooms needed more attention.
Our daily camp fee was for out of state, which was still a bargin. This was a great place to stop and rest after being on I -80 and listening to the traffic at the RV parks next to the highway. This is a no frills campground which is what we like. Very few sites have water and electric, and they are out in the sun and wind. No showers, pit toilets, and you have to fill up with water before you find your site. The sites are dirt, some are in the shade, some are right on the lake. You do have to be careful about driving into some of the camping areas, turning around can become difficult.
We were referred to this campground by another campground which was full. We pulled into this place and should have pulled out, but we were tired. The campground is old and not taken care of, the bathrooms and showers were bad. Our septic line backed up and we had we had to dump at another site. The park caters to monthly, but most the rigs were clean. This park is still a pretty park, grassy and shady, just run down and dirty. Due to recent flooding (which had not reached the park) the water was not fit to drink, luckily it did not leave a stain. This place was way over priced, don't bother stopping.
There are no restroom or shower facilities here for the guests. They do no encourage families to stay here, per the individual checking us in. The park is clean and has shady sites, the staff was helpful and friendly. We would have moved on as we were looking for shower facilities, but it was a quiet park and the price was good. The only reason not to return is the lack of restrooms and showers.
We chose electric and water hookup only. We were in the rear of the park, the sites were spaced well apart and most had shade. The roads were level and so were the spaces. The restrooms and showers were very clean. We would return to this campground because it was so neat and clean. There is no cable, which is not that big of a deal to us.
