This park is relatively highly rated by Woodalls. They are mistaken and did not stay here. The site we were in was not really a site it was a wide spot on the left of a gravel road. And we had a tense moment due to the removal of our property while we were getting our RV repaired. I would not recommend staying here.

Pretty good KOA with a bit too much dust. Could use some more gravel and less dirt. But good utilities and friendly people. Nice little store and good pool. Close to town. In and out room for only one in one direction at a time.

As every other review has stated, this place is about the location and view. The park itself is a 4-5. Maybe less. But it has one of the best locations of any RV park we have ever stayed in. It is right on the Puget Sound. There is a constantly changing panorama of sea birds, ferries, and sailboats. Three close walking distance restaurants. And a couple dozen more close by within walking distance or bike. This park is close to but separated from one of the nicest restored towns you can find. The location, view, proximity to a wonderful town is a 10. Bonus points go for the ease of biking here, and it is a dog friendly town. So the paws have it and I put this down as an 8. If the sites were just a bit nicer instead of looking completely neglected I would rate higher. Likely a 9. It one of the very few places I have ever parked the RV that I could see us staying a month or two. The guy next to us has a house in AZ and stays in this park all summer.

We have not stayed here for four summers. This time we stayed on the river side. No sewers, but way, way nicer spots than on the other side of the street. We saw tubers and fishermen from inside our coach. Plus 50 amps. I think the no sewers part is due to closeness to the river. Friendly staff. No sewer on river side. The gate makes you wait two minutes if you miss the first try and you do not enter the gate code exactly right. The staff person was not exactly welcoming to my criticism. The access road sucks. Very narrow and curvy for 3-4 miles no matter if you come in from Sultan or Monroe. I also like the cost, zero for me.

This is a beautiful lake view park. It was packed over the weekend and almost empty during the week. Close to Mt Rainier national park. It is real close to the backside of Mt St. Helens national park. This park is mostly for smaller rigs and tents. Only a few sites will fit a 40'. We have a 42' and we barely fit into our site. The only sites with sewer that fit a bigger rig are in the group area. We asked if we could move there when it was completely empty. No was the answer. Against the rules. The nicer spaces by far are in the group area. The second nicest spots are for small RVs. Very nice if you have kids and a smaller rig. Lots of very nice playground equipment. We were the only larger RV in the park not in the group area. Showers very scarce if you don't bring your own. 30 amp only in the area that will fit bigger rigs.

We have stayed at this park several times over the last four years. Four years ago it was a very nice new park on a river. Now it is a mess. The park has been bought by a church and they have construction going on covering most of the pull-through sites. Maybe 40% of the area total of the campground. When they built this park about five years ago the cement for the slabs were not done correctly and now they are nearly all severely cracked. The water here tastes terrible. I drained the tank at the next place we stayed. Plus do not hook up to the water here without a good working pressure reducer. I have an almost new pressure reducer that is the most common brand from Camping World and other suppliers and even using it the water pressure here burst 4 holes in our pipes. Fortunately the factory that built our motorhome is five miles from this place so we were able to get the breaks fixed the next day. We have never had a problem at 100 other RV parks we have stayed at in this coach. I have a high end adjustable Watts regulator on order. The park is fairly quiet and is on a nice river. Most of the people staying here are workers that have local jobs. When we were here for three nights there were maybe 6 regular campers.

This is a really excellent county park. It is by far the best campground we have found in the area. No wifi. Spaces are close together. Lovely view. We had a pull through and our 42' motorhome fit well. Some of the back in spaces would not be so friendly. We parked here on a weekend in June. Keep in mind that parks like this are very full in the summer. So if you want solitude and no noise from other campers this might not be the place for you. On the other hand there is no road noise at all. Short drive to a lovely small town.

Very centrally located to Sacramento's museums and other attractions. Good fenced in dog park with grass and poo bags + hose and water bowl. Wi-Fi works about as well as you can expect these days. Meaning, it works, but so slow you use your own. Spaces are either gravel-dirt or asphalt. Utilities are good, with 50 amps. Quite a bit of freeway noise. If you don't mind noise then the rating for this park is an 8.

As many others, I am rating this a 10. Very well designed spaces with plenty of room, grass, good utilities. Very nice clubhouse with small store, good restaurant, pool, hot tub, and so on. Free DVDs for guests. We ate dinner at restaurant and it was good. Not fantastic, but very good. On the level of one of the chains like Claim Jumper or Outback. We had a very friendly server. Front desk person friendly. I think they have a massage person here too. Fenced in small dog park. Poop bags available in at least one location in park. Any dings? Not really. This park is a couple blocks off the freeway. There is still background freeway noise, but not loud. This is a city RV Park so you have ambulance and police noise. Large Camping World right down the street. This is by far!! the best park I have stayed at in this area. Worth going out of your way to stay here. We would have been happy to stay here longer.

We have stayed here a number of times and I have rated this park once before. It is a very nice park. Again we were in a spot overlooking a small lake. There are fish in the lake and someone was swimming in it. Sites are gravel and medium sized. The space were were in this time was a bit tighter than when we last stayed here and our 42' motorhome and Jeep would both not fit into the spot. This place has lots of facilities. Rec room, exercise facilities, golf, restaurant, and so on. My big problem with this park is the military jet noise. It is very prevalent. If not for the noise I would still rate the park a 9. Sites a bit cramped to rate a 10. If you are a light sleeper the noise from the jets and freeway may give you some problems. But there are lots of people who have permanent park units here that seem to like it a lot.

This is a very nice RV Park. The only ding is there is moderate road noise. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being lots of noise, to me this was a 4. The Wi-Fi here as we have come to expect on this most recent trip is pretty useless. We did get a pretty good Verizon 4G signal so used that instead. This park is all paved, medium sized spaces, friendly staff, very nice dog run area, pool, hot tub, and some additional facilities. It is close to the freeway, but as already stated, not too bad noise. You are close to both Cottonwood-Jerome and Sedona. But not right next to Sedona. So expect a 45 minute drive there.

Good park off the busy road so quiet. Nice helpful owners/managers. Good utilities. One big ding is that they say they have WiFi. It only works at snail speed. Plus Verizon is very limited here with slow service. I do not have a cell phone antenna though so that would help if you have something like a Wilson. This park is about 5 miles south of Moab. But very convenient to fuel, markets, and restaurants. Even with good WiFi this park is not developed enough to rate a ten. When we were here in April it was packed to overflowing. This is a hopping area in April.

Expensive, but a great park in the middle of monument valley. Only reason I did not give it a 10 is spaces are tight. One of the few times we unhooked on the way in and out. And promised wifi did not operate at all any time we were there. You could see that the signal was there, but it just did not work. If a park that charges a lot advertises wifi I expect it to work.

This is a beautiful setting with wonderful sunsets, red rocks, and attractive desert vegetation. Very quiet. Nearly a perfect park. I would give this a 10 except no sewers or wifi. There is a clean and easy to use dump site.

I reviewed this park in 2010 and gave it a 3. We enjoyed it more this time and have upped the rating to a 5. Some people will rate this park much higher. Some lower. It is a very quiet park with lots of mature Oak trees. There are nice white ranch type fences. There is a very good view to the west with good sunsets over the mountains. The utilities are very good. But this is also basically a sandy dirt area that is not level. There are also cows and bulls roaming free. Some of the animals have learned to turn the water on. When they do this water can run for a long time as there is nearly no one in this campground. Therefore, there are gullies downhill from the water outlets. And lots of other gullies from natural runoff. The spaces are huge. We stayed here in a group of 10 coaches. We were in the "new" section. It was almost empty. In the "old" section right next to us were about 100 semi permanent RVs. The day that we left one of the semi permanent residents got into an argument with another and then shot gunned the guy he was arguing with. We were not affected by this incident but it was close to where we were. We missed this activity by a couple of hours. It happened in mid day. Right down the street is a HUGE casino. Very modern and very well visited. Good food.

For the most part a good park that is maintained a bit funky. It is noisy though. There is an all night plant close by and there is a fork lift back up "bell" noise all night long every night. So if you cannot stand noise do not go here. People are nice enough. Stuff in the park is there, but not necessarily in good condition. The hot tub is only warm and the jets don't work. Knobs broken. The dog fenced in area has BARBED wire on one side and a dog could easily get out. On the other hand it is centrally located and fairly low priced. Full hookups work well. Lots of restaurants close by.

Nice park. Mostly long term residents. This park is maintained quite well. We stayed here two nights. The first night the management did not enforce their policy of quiet after 9pm and we had very loud party noises past midnight. Then our "neighbors" to the other side packed up before 6am. So no sleep first night. But in fairness, these were issues on that night and not the park as a whole. Pretty close to Zion Park. This is a beautiful area, but Hurricane is only an OK town.

This is a very nice facility. Very nice. The one big caveat is that it is extremely noisy. There is a wall "blocking" the I 15 freeway noise, but still lots of noise. Very nice hot tub and pool. Children's play area. Grass all over the place. Big spaces. Tent spaces. If you are OK with the noise, then this park is a 10 at a good price.

We stayed here for a week. We love this park except for the poor Verizon cell phone reception and basically no Internet. Too many trees to use our Internet satellite. This is a full hookup park in one of the most beautiful spots in the USA. If you have not stayed here - book now. You are inside the Grand Teton National Park. Colter Bay is a "compound" with ranger station, cabins (also lovely to stay in) a museum, place to book things to do like raft trips, restaurant, gas station, and so on. About 20 miles south of Yellowstone. We have a 42' and it easily fits. This is a great RV park for bikes. Lots of places to ride them. Wonderful picnic area by lake with view of mountains. Close to 4WD roads. We have been here before and stayed in the cabins. They are log and modestly priced. Twice we have had family reunions here. So if not all your family has an RV they can book into cabins. Might be my favorite RV park.

If you have a dog with you this is the park you should stay in. Very nice central dog area where all the pooches play frequently. This park is off the freeway, but still pretty close to road noise. Well run, fairly close to Boise. Friendly people, good sites, very good park. Lots of long term people. Solid 50 amp connection. Meaning, it does not breaker off the second you go over 50.

Cash and checks only. This park met our standards in what we want in a park and is a solid ten. It is not a fancy resort, however, it is in a beautiful area with good views out the front of our motorhome. Spacious areas in front of us for me to throw the ball to the dog. Quiet. Very nice owners. Immaculately clean and good working facilities. Grass at every site. Gravel pads. About 15-20 miles from Joseph and Wallowa lake area. Much more low key here than in the RV Parks at Wallowa Lake. Not much of a town. Wallowa town could use some help, but close driving distance to Joseph which is a lovely dog friendly kind of place with very nice art displayed all over the sidewalk areas. We have never been to this area before. It is a find. We intend to go back.

Very nice staff. Convenient to the freeway, but far enough away so noise not bad. A large casino in front of this park. We found food in the casino quite good. However, the site we had was gravel, uneven, and 30 amps. Since the temp peaked at 103 yesterday 30 amps does not cut it. We had to run our generator for a couple of hours to cool our 3 air conditioners bus down. As mentioned by other posters, the sewer location is terrible. I did not use it as it was so far in the back. Very nice native American museum on the grounds. Truck stop next door. If I was only rating our site it was more like a 2. But other considerations bring it up.

I like this park a lot. Good location, although some freeway and train noise. Spacious long sites with lots of room for a big rig and tow without unhooking. So great for an overnight stop. We stayed here several nights and went to a couple of State Parks to see some of the local sites. Hot tub and pool. Hot tub had way too much chlorine in it. Even after washing my swimsuit still smelled of it.

Great park pretty close to Portland. When no traffic or low traffic about 20 minute drive. Sites are very nice. Great dog walking areas. Lots of flowers. Fairly quiet. This is on the landing side of the airport and not the takeoff side. Sites are a bit tightly packed for my taste. Very good utilities. Wi-Fi pretty good. Medium strength Verizon 4G signal. Roses planted around the grounds. With just a tiny bit more elbow room, this would be a ten.

My high ranking is because this is a very nice spot to be and everything works. Power, water and sewer, all good. Spot big enough for our 42' plus tow. Park is located in a pine forest. People operating the park are friendly and helpful. Rate is reasonable. This is not a big fancy deluxe park, but a nicely situated comfortable one. Quiet too.

This park is a strong 10. Friendly staff, great sites, excellent security, good location, lots of amenities. WiFi was slow, but a good 4G signal here and I used my phone. Dog areas could use some grass. One of the best parks we have stayed in.

We have stayed here twice. Our RV club likes to stay here. Here are the reasons why am I not going with the other higher reviews. . 1. Small entrance road that two motor homes could not pass in. And backing up there is not safe or easy. 2. Wi-Fi poor to not working. Did not work better at club house. 3. Fine dirt throughout the park. My wife and I repeatedly had to clean all surfaces in coach. 4. No cell signal. I have Verizon. Don't know if others work. 5. A lot of sites including ours only 30 amps. This was not enough to cool our coach down in 98 degree weather. 6. Big trees blocked our satellite internet. 7. It is not close to things like groceries. 20 minute drive for groceries. 8. Dirt sites. This place needs pavement or grass to cut down on the fine dust everywhere for it's sites. If you like to camp at places with issues such as the ones above then you will like this place. I would have to say that there are amenities on site which are quite nice. A pond with fish in it. Kids like that. Nice big Oaks. Very good jeep roads close by. Good hikes close in. A little zoo. Nice people for check in and working in the park. So if they fixed the dust by paving the sites or grassing, fixed the Wi-Fi, and ungraded the 30 amp to 50 amp, . I would rate this park about an 8. They should also ask you if you are going to use satellite when you check in.

Very rude person yelling profanities at one of the campers in our group. The person in our group just stopped to unhook. This guy who I think was the owner comes out screaming get that f#$%^&& out of the way. He was about 250 lbs and big 45 years old, screaming at a mild 81 year old. I would not stay here again if I was paid to do so. We stayed in the front row. My 50 amp service was a 30 amp. WiFi was almost totally non working. Spaces in the upper half of the park very unlevel. The staff besides the owner were fine. However, he was way way way out of line. If we had another RV park to stay in in the area we would have left.

We faced the lake. Wide and long sites. WiFi weak and slow. Went out when the wind came up. Noisy ducks and geese at 4am. Office closed Sunday. But if no resident ducks and strong WiFi I would rate this park a 10.

Good park. We have stayed here a couple of times. This time three nights. Gravel sites. Near freeway but road is tilted away and noise level low. Evening cookouts for moderate cost. They also have breakfast. All utilities worked well. There are lots of parks and attractions in this area. We also visited the old La Posada Hotel in Winslow which served us the best lunch. Beautiful small hotel. Also, nice Indian ruins north of Winslow. If you go to Petrified Forest be sure to walk down some of the trails. Really a beautiful place. This KOA features some of the clearest sky you can imagine. Lots of stars.

We went to this park because Woodall gave it 5 W's on both their categories. We have a 42' motor home and we tow a car. For the first time in 2 months I had to unhook to get in the site. Our site was very tight for our rig. And getting out of the park was very difficult as well. The interior roads are more suitable for a 34' rig. This is mostly a trailer park for long term people. They do have lots of amenities and some activities for long term residents. I have rated this park low because of the bad problems getting in and out, the fact that trees blocked our satellite even though I was told they were trimmed when checking in, and the horrendous noise from cicada noise. The bugs would start up as soon as the sun hit them with a very very loud din until well after the sun went down. This was not a minor noise. This was like Led Zeppelin practicing all day near you. So we just left all day and explored. If I was a long term resident and not deaf I would move. Noise is unbearable. They need to spray the trees.

This is a pretty RV Park. Trees, lakes, quiet. However no sewer hookups. I missed the now sewer when I picked the park out. This park was only rated three out of five by one of the big books. No sewer likely the issue. Another serious issue is the road to the sites. It is narrow and you have to be careful if you have a big rig, which we do. The problem will come up if you are going one way and you meet someone going the other. You will not be able to see them before it is too late and that will require unhooking the car and a very difficult back up. If you are not an expert backer I do not recommend you stay here. WiFi is intermittent but free. Nice beach and swimming lake. Another really annoying problem with this park is that if you have a friend, or in our case, family members coming to visit you, it is $6 bucks each to get in. Not joking. $6 bucks each. I paid $30 bucks for some family member to come by and sit in our motor home. So if you plan visitors be prepared to fork over some money. The paying to get in is a Cleveland "thing". We are at another park in this area east of town and it costs $8 per guest here. I sweet talked the office person today though and we got a few family members in at no charge. Since we did not use any of the facilities I see no reason to pay. Did I mention no sewer. Without taking into consideration the nice ambiance this park would rate maybe a 2 on facilities alone.

Pluses and minuses in this park. It is grassy and the utilities work fine. Tall trees blocked our internet sat dish even after I told the check in I wanted to be clear of the trees. Nice pool. The interior roads are tight and very dusty. We have a 42 foot rig. People with 45s should be skilled drivers or don't come here. Wifi was intermittent. And I did get the vibe that you were "under watch" during our stay. This was reinforced by the policy of charging a friend of mine to stay and visit for a few hours. Sort of a strange policy. I did not find the staff rude, but they did seem to be "watching" us. This park is a long drive from the city of Chicago. So if you plan to visit the city a lot be prepared to spend some time driving. Steak house next door is good.

This is an exceptionally nice park. Big pull through spaces with two sewer connections, strong electric supply, strong water connection. The people checking us in an helping us could not have been nicer. Very nice view from site. I did not give a 10 because the Wi-Fi was intermittent. And access to this park was difficult. You have to go around problem turns and grades to get here. You can see it from the main road but you cannot get here without going through steep narrow curvy streets downtown.

This is a very hard park to rate. In this case the book ratings with 3 categories would make more sense. I would rate my site in this park a 2. I might be being generous. I did not use the restrooms so cannot comment. Ambiance is around a 9 or 10. So I ended up giving this park a 5. However, if you have a smaller RV and can fit into one of their riverside spaces you may give this park a 10. There are quite a few riverside or river view spaces. We were not lucky enough to get one of those. About one third of the spaces, the ones that fit bigger rigs, are; uneven, the picnic table has big river rock just waiting to twist your ankle, and terrible location for sewer connection. These are bad spaces. BAD!!!! Maybe the worst I have had in a couple of years. But keep in mind you might get a riverside spot, and you will be happy. We did take a raft ride from the resort. This is a very nice amenity. The wi-fi never worked. You could see it, but it did not work.

Great RV park. Expensive. We even belong to their club and still got this rate. But this park is a gateway to Bryce and Zion parks, and this is high season. So I am telling you in my experience this is a 10. If you choose to pay this rate you will get a good place to stay. Lobby is very nice. Same for all facilities. We did have a problem with the inexperienced check in girl. She put us in a space with a tree tilted into it, and it was very hard to fit our 42' in it. But I went to complain, and she obviously had not done it on purpose. This is off the freeway and quiet. Cedar City is a very nice small town. Up high enough so the heat is moderate and not the furnace St George is this time of year. This park has lots of stuff for kids. Very cool small bikes and carts and all sorts of entertainment. We do not have any kids or grand kids with us but like people so the activity around us was welcome and not an issue.

We have stayed here before. It really is a well run park with lots of amenities. Nice pool. Very helpful staff. Clean. Far enough away from the freeway that it is not too noisy. A solid well run KOA park. Good running wifi until the evening came. Then slow.

We stayed here two night. We had no hookups. There were a few sites that had electric, and a few that had water. One of our group of 12 Rv's had electric. The condition of the park was fair. The reason seemed to be lack of anything being done except rangers driving by every ten minutes in brand new trucks. Those trucks were pretty much the only thing in this park in good condition. We have a 42' motor home. It was VERY tight getting into a spot. It took help from my wife and others to get in. And it was very close. There is a very nice lake here with fish in it. This campground is very isolated from noise and traffic. But it really really needs some help in getting it fixed up.

Solid very good RV Park. Very quiet. Nice sunsets. Close to Joshua Tree National Park. Pull through sites and back ins. Very good electric power posts. I glanced at my amp meters and I was pulling 65 amps and still had not blown anything. Shade in the back in sites. This park has snowbirds, transients like us, and some park unit with "contractors" living in them. I think they are military contractors. Unlike one of the other reviews we had no noise at all from the park units or any of the other campers. I recommend this park to anybody. If you have time see the several dozen town murals in 29 Palms.

We just left this park today. We are Thousand Trails members and therefore free for us to stay here. We left anyway and paid somewhere else. I understand that Thousand Trails members can stay here at no cost and that is a good deal, but frankly I was a bit surprised by this park and the high ratings other posters have left. If you are a TT member, have a rig of about 30' or smaller, and can stand a BLAST of noise then this may be the park for you. When I booked I knew it was on the freeway and so I should have known what I was getting into before going here. I just did not anticipate the full effect of I 10 with it's constant din. And there is the trains. LOTS of trains. Many many trains. For me the immense noise ruined the experience. We would never stay here again even if noise were the only problem. It is not. This is Palm Desert and it is very hot here even at the end of April. Like 100. Unless you have a small RV 30 amps is not enough to keep you cool. 98 percent of the pull through sites are 30 amps. There are lots of back in sites with 50 amps. The only problem is that if you have a big RV and do not have the nerves of Evil Knieval you are going to be really really nervous getting into these back in sites. I am a pretty good driver and usually have no problem at all backing into sites. The very big palm trees at the corner of every site had me spooked. I could not find a site I felt comfortable backing into. A good thing about this park is that as usual there are very nice employees here that will help you. They found me the very last pull through site that had 50amps. Naturally it was also the site closest to the freeway and very nearly the closest to the trains. If I were paying to stay here I would have rated it a 1. I will never stay here again. That is until my hearing is poor. And I don't mind 100 degree heat. So likely I will never stay here again.

We were at this park for a convention. The facilities here are hard to fault. The sites were spacious and easy to get into and out. Power, water, sewer all worked. Wi-Fi worked, but is fairly slow to really slow. Likely a few Netflix watchers slow down the Wi-Fi. The only thing I can fault in site area is lack of dirt - grass for dogs. Almost everyone had at least one dog and the dog park is way over towards one end of the park. And this is a big park. Lobby is very nice. They have a restaurant here. Many meeting rooms. Pool and so on. Plus next door is Camping World and the Lazy Days service area. CW very convenient, I was in there twice. I did have a small emergency and tried to get into their service facility. I would have had to wait an extra day and chose not to. But they really tried to fit me in. There is a lot of noise here. This is not the park's fault but it should be noted. The noise is from lots of traffic and fighter jets. This is also a low income area. In sum. Great park and facilities. Some ambiance issues though.

Extremely nice check in people. We have stopped here twice as an overnight. It is very easy to make this an overnight. Very easy big rig park. This is mostly a park model place, but lots of short term spaces too. The short term spaces are rock. There is a pool, hot tub, and other outdoor recreation facilities. This is on the other side of the mountains just east of Yuma. There are large farms in the area so some green. If spaces were paved and Wi-Fi worked well I would have rated higher. My wife got the Wi-Fi code but still did not work.

We were in a group of 8 motor homes. The area we were in was mixed 30 and 50 amps. The site we had was a pull through but it was quite narrow. Fortunately there was no one parked next to us. My rating of this park is colored by the horrible check in we had. An inexperienced person fouled up the check in several times on her computer and it took 8 times as long as it should have. With a normal check in time I would have rated this a 7. If we were lucky enough to get a view space my rating likely would have been an 8 or 9. Some of the river facing spaces really do have an great view of the bright lights and the Casino area. There is a regular shuttle from the RV park spaces to the casino. But it is not so far to walk.

Pretty good RV park on a lake in a crummy area. We were in a group of 11 motor homes. Hookups worked fine. There is a security gate and they do check to make sure you are supposed to be there. This is needed in this neighborhood. Very nice lake front view with mountains around the lake. We used the clubhouse which is a very nice facility. The people in the office were very helpful and friendly. Like Lake Elsinore this RV park looks a bit worn and used to be a better place.

We stayed here as a group of eight motor homes and were visiting the Death Valley area. This RV park is in a remote area. All of the hookups worked perfectly including 50 amps. We had beautiful views out the front of our coach. The spaces are rock and dust. But this is in the area of Death Valley so you expect that. The Wi-Fi was free and was a bit weak from our motor home. The Wi-Fi was also a bit slow. We ate a couple times in the restaurant and it was fine. This is likely the best full hook up RV park in the area. If you are coming to this area to see Death Valley you should remember that distances are great here and this is in the valley just to the west of Death Valley. It is about 50-60 miles to the Furnace Creek area of the park from here. I would have rated this park an 8 except the driveways from the main road to your space need some work. And there are a few RV tire killers you have to watch out for. My Verizon service did not work at all here.

This park has had a major upgrade and now has 150 RV and tent sites. Actually they are all RV sites, but some are suitable for tents and there were some tenters here last weekend. I stayed for the first 2 days in the new section during the week and the cost was 30 dollars. That included electric, water, and sewer. Stayed in the old section over the weekend and we only had electric and water. The whole park now does have 50 amp power. I would have given this park a 10 if the Wi-Fi would have worked. I stayed in site 70 the first two nights and it has a distant ocean view. The sunset the first night was spectacular. And that night, when you looked to the east, there was a great moonrise. There are several freeways around this park so it is not silent, but not really loud either. I did have to back out of my pull through site as the exit was too steep and going to hang up the bottom of our coach. The new sites are very large with concrete pads. They have planted trees, but they have not grown yet. The good thing was my satellite dish worked in the new section and not in the old. The old section is like a forest. There are very nice child playground facilities. There are also many sites with small horse stalls. Overall this is a great RV Park. If you have a GPS over a year old, this will be a harder than normal park to find. There are new freeways and only the GPS in my cell phone knew about the changes. This is a County of San Diego park and they have a very good website for making reservations.

We belong to Thousand Trails and of course this makes staying here very inexpensive. I am writing my review if we were paying the going average rate. This is an Oscar Madison park and not a Felix Unger. It is big, friendly, and there is lots of stuff here. The condition is, well, Oscar Madison. And Oscar once described his character as "an unmade bed". I think that is too harsh. This park was built maybe 25 years ago and when it was finished was likely the nicest RV part in San Diego Country. There are pools, buildings, play areas, a store, grass ball field, and so on. But not everything has been kept up. So the space I used this week at one time had 50 amps. Now only 30 amps. The site tested the ability of my leveling system to get the coach level. There is free Wi-Fi. But it is so limited you use the pay Wi-Fi. Works well and not very expensive. I stayed for six days and this year was not in a hurry. The park has grown on me. The people here were uniformly friendly. They rode around in carts trying to get the group of us to go to the group activities, of which there are many. There are lots of people that rent and stay here for extended time. There is almost no cell phone coverage. It is very quiet here. Sort of a country oasis in the huge city of San Diego. There is an automatic gate and the park is secure. They serve breakfast and lunch in the clubhouse. Dinner on weekends. Good food modest cost.

We camped here with a group of about 10 motorhomes. Lots of trees. A lake. Grass areas. Sort of an oasis in a dense residential area. There is a great / worth a detour to visit / part of this large park with a huge collection of old vehicles / steam and gas / motors / buses / AG machines and so on. Worth several hours to go see. I checked off 50 amp available, but in our area only one site had 50 amp. The rest were 30 amp. No sewers, Wi-Fi, and hard to use sat dish. Bring DVD's if you want them. Not close to a freeway, but fairly high road noise. This is an old homestead from Spanish days. A very good weekend place.

This is a wildly expensive cramped RV Park in a shabby town. Wi-Fi did not work for the whole time we were there. Camp host said there were problems, but no fix while we were there. No pull through spaces. Space so jammed in I had a hard time using my slide outs in basement. This RV park is by far the nicest thing in Moss Landing. Other shops and eating places are shabby with the exception of a produce market. We were also nearly totally fogged in the whole time we were here. Overall this was a completely unpleasant stop. Not completely the park's fault.

We have stayed here two years in a row. Very convenient if you are having work done on your RV in this area as Country Coach is here and Monaco used to be. We were in one of the most distant sites and the Wi-Fi worked well. This park is right on a river. The spaces are all cement pads. They have a large laundry facility. There is also a small hotel here. The power, sewer, water all worked well. There is plenty of room for the biggest rigs here.

Pretty darn nice park in the middle of a redwood forest. Right on Ave of the Giants. I would suggest getting here before dark as there are HUGE trees close by on either side of the road going to the park. The Wi-Fi works fine. Which is good as my cell phone did not.

If you like crowds and noise this is the park for you. Much more kid oriented than adult. Lots of permanent trailers - mobile homes - not park models surrounding this RV park. This park has a pool, plus two hot tubs. There is a ice cream social every day. There are a special type of trike for kids to ride. Tents are also allowed in this park and when we were there there were a lot of tent people. Hundreds. We also had some problems with dog noise. We reported the problem to the people in charge of the park and they did not do anything about it. All that said and if you have kids your rating of this park might be higher. This is also in a busy part of town.

We really hated this park and will never stay here again. But not for the reasons stated by the last couple of posters. I hate excessive noise and this park is wildly noisy with freeway noise. It is not the parks fault. They are no closer than many RV parks which have been OK for me. But on this part of I-25 the pavement is particularly noisy and trucks run this route heavily all night. The noise spoiled any enjoyment for me here. If it were not for the excessive noise I would have rated it about 5. The spaces are too close together. But there is grass. The 50 amp works fine and so does water and sewer. The office is cute, plus we had a good dinner in the cowboy restaurant. Good T bone steak and live country music. And there are bison roaming the back 40. So not a bad park except for terrible noise. Not a good park either.

I know others have rating this park way high. I do like this park, but cannot go along with the really high ratings. The people running the park and the very friendly people staying here are the reason I am rating it as high as I do. On the positive side it is 1. Fairly quiet. 2. Friendly people. But 1. No pull throughs. 2. I had 30 amp power and I requested 50 amp well in advance 3. Funky part of town. 4. Wi-Fi did not work at our site at all. This is not a bad place, but there is no way to rate it really high based on our stay.

I know I am rating this park below what several other recent reviewers have. I usually tend to do the opposite. This park was fine, but there were a number of annoying things. 1. The site they gave us when we checked in was lousy. I complained they gave us a relatively good site. 2. Power kicked off when you got to just below 50 amps. And with the extreme hot sun you get in Santa Fe you need all 50 amps. 3. Wi-Fi was variable. There were several park Wi-Fi to connect to and I had results from no park Wi-Fi to pretty good. I was at the end of the row though so maybe distance was the problem. 4. The "gentle breeze" described by a previous poster was more like a hurricane. There were many wind blasts while we spend 4 days there. You did not dare leave out your awnings and you needed them here. 5. Tight entrance. The park was clean. This is a big rig friendly park. I recommend upgrading to the better premium sites. We did not but would do so if we came back. Just as a comment on Santa Fe. I thought it would be a highlight of our six week trip. It is not. The city center where we went on the weekend where all the vendors were there was Rodeo Drive high priced. My wife's comment, "this is no fun everything is too high priced to buy anything". I went into a belt buckle shop and the prices were silly expensive. We did go to the official flea market north of town the next day and had lots more fun. If you want to see things fairly priced go to the flea market on Flea Market St right next to the Opera House.

This park is a solid 10. Perfect, no, but close. Very accommodating staff. Our motor home broke down and we were a day late and it was no issue at all to change our reservation. Plus, when we showed up in our rather long motor home there was someone right out front to guide us to our site. Very clean and neat park. Our site was quite large and extremely easy to pull a big rig into with tow car. Outdoor swimming pool. Great view of Mesa Verde from the park. Wonderful full sky of stars from here. Some trees but did not block our two satellite dishes. Right next to entrance to Mesa Verde National Park.

Good small park with friendly staff, everything works well, rates modest, clear path for my two satellite dishes, likely the best park in town. It would have to have a few more amenities to rate a 10, but this is a solid 9, for me. Even though it was very hot here the park was fairly full most days, so book ahead. Right in the middle of a lot of sights like Monument Valley, Hovenweep, the famous Goosenecks on the Colorado, and way more. Did I mention it is hot here in July?

This is a mostly permanent resident park. However, it is a very nice place to park that is well organized, reasonable, easy to get a big rig in. In fact I found nothing wrong with this park, but nothing to motivate me to score them above an 8. This park is in the city. But it is in a mid range residential area and quiet. If your GPS routes you through relatively narrow residential streets as my new Garmin did don't worry about it. Getting a space is not a problem here in the summer.

There are things to like about this Thousand Trails park, but also quite a few to not. Yes there is Wi-Fi, but it is weak and even at the clubhouse it was not strong. But my Verizon phone worked great with four bars. There are some 50 amp sites (10), however they are always full. A number of the sites do not have sewer. Yes big rigs can get in. I did, but you better be a good driver. I almost cut a sharp corner too fast with my back wheels. If you do not have a sewer in your camp site, the road to get to the dump station is narrow and windy. There is a small lake here, but also 10,000 frogs. And many herds of flies. Many many. This is a country RV park. If you are a hiker there are trails right from the park. Right down the road a very short distance is Cuyamaca State Park. The road getting here is narrow. Big rigs are going to be on both sides. But not a lot of traffic so doable. The people here are quite friendly. There are quite a few outdoor games like horse shoes, boche ball, miniature golf and so on. Also fishing. Grounds are clean, but worn. Clubhouse and store are pretty new, likely built after 2003 fires. There used to be a lovely log and stone clubhouse that is gone because of the fire. I like this area. This park is sort of like a lot of TT parks, passable because the cost is low.

Very clean park near Zion National Park. The park abuts the Virgin river. Friendly staff and lots of staff. Organized activities. Activities like wine and cheese, smores, etc. Cell service next to non-existent. Wifi weak to non-existent. Meaning we were close to the club house and the reception varied between OK to none. Trees blocked both our TV and Internet dishes. They tried to trim the TV blocker, but failed. No cable TV. Our site was long and paved, but very narrow. No room at all to put out awnings or even a sitting area. So there are some things I really like about this park and some I really don't. No excuse for a park this expensive to not have working wifi. I would guess there just is not much in the way of broadband in this small city. If we were to go here again we would have to be in a spot with clear site to satellites. I also found pay showers to be a bit odd. I really want to rate this park higher but cannot. My expectations were high from their ads touting "best rated park in Utah". So some of the flaws become glaring when you have high expectations.

If you want a well organized park in a pine forest this is your place. Circular layout with fairly large sites. The roads and sites are rock-gravel. The park is about 3 miles from the Route 66 town of Williams. This is a place with about 5 restaurants and 10 route 66 kitchen shops. But also a newish Safeway and where the railroad goes to the Grand Canyon. Very nice inside pool. Doggy doo bags in appropriate areas. Slow service at reception. This park is noisy. Truck and train noise. But if you want the park with the prettiest site in the area this is the one. Bearizona a nice little animal park within five minutes of RV park.

Great place to stay. We pulled in here tired without reservations and everything was good. Friendly reception. Guided to spot. Big big grassy spots. Both of our satellite dishes had clear shots. 50 amps. The park is on the Colorado river. It is also close to the freeway too. Our one negative: it's not cheap. But a great spot to stay a night or many nights. Spot we were put on was all grass. A big plus.

We camped here right on the ocean. You have to be active military or retired military to camp here. Beautiful crescent beach. We could see the ocean, dolphins, surfers from inside our coach. We had great weather in March. If you can get in I recommend staying at this park. Sites are back in. I had no problems with our 42' motor home here. A bit of noise with some parting on Sat night. Not bad. Very nice children play area.

Well laid out park with plenty of room to drive in with a big rig. Maybe about 50% of this park is park units and not RVs. Lots of activities, music, large gym, pool, and so on. The freeway is close by so there is traffic noise. Also, a military air base. When we were here the Blue Angels started practicing at about 8am on Saturday. The duck hunters started shooting around 6am. But the weather was great for January. It is about a 15 minute drive to El Centro where you can find some good places to eat. I also drove to the Borrego State Park to hike. That was maybe a 30 minute drive.

We went here with our local RV club. This is an older private RV park that has been bought by the casino down the street. You have to camp here in a group. The park is funky. By that I mean in a state of disrepair. The trash is picked up. The clubhouse was clean. But unless you really want to stay in this area or like going to casinos this is not the best choice for a park. Don't forget this is a group only place. You need to call ahead and you need to be a group.

The warm welcome and free tip buffet more than made up for the Spartan site. However, we did have 50 amp, sewer, got the 42' in (with lots of help, but tight fit), both Satellites worked. This is a mostly permanent resident park but the really wonderful welcome and low rates deserve mention. Just a side note. We went to Sequoia park with our tow car from here. I do NOT recommend trying to drive a motor home over 24' into the park from the south entrance. Go the north entrance.

It rained for six days straight in August when we stayed here. This park is close to my sister and we belong to TT, is how we picked it. When this place was built they laid out a good RV park. It is in a somewhat state of disrepair. But that said our stay was fine. My biggest complaints would be that we could not get our TV or internet Sat to work because of trees. But the other side of it was that we were camping in a forest, so that is not so bad. For Wi-Fi you walk to the clubhouse. The four miles to get here off the main road is narrow and hilly. We have a 42' motor home and made it, but a log truck going the other way is a tight fit.

We have now stayed here twice. Four years ago and just now. My impressions are the same. IMHO this was a very deluxe place originally and let go a bit downhill. For example, our picnic table had pealing paint. The site at one time had 50 amp and now only the 30 amp works. BUT this is still a very nice place. Friendly staff, well organized, trash is all picked up, and so on. We were in a group of about 12 motor homes and they had us all in the same area. We were also provided with a meeting area. We have a 42' motor home and there was plenty of room to drive around and park. This place is quite close to San Diego and yet you are really in the boon docks. Very quiet and low surrounding light levels so lots of stars. This is a few miles from a highway so very low level of noise. There are a couple of pools. Several club house places. Yesterday a young couple got married there. So, pretty nice. Plus we belong to TT and our rate was zero. Very limited cell phone coverage. My Verizon worked OK. There is pay Wi-Fi, but only 5 bucks and it works well. Trees blocked me putting up my internet sat. That was just our site though and most of the sites have the ability to get sat coverage.
