Arrived without reservations early in the day and had no problem getting a spot. Great park. Full hook-ups. 50 amp did not lose voltage when all RV's were running air conditioning. Clean facilities. Nice folks running office. Had no problems putting out slides. Pool was small but very clean and nice. Convenient to just about everything. There is a Flying-J station just up the street. The sites are somewhat close together but it wasn't a problem. Price quoted ($38) included all taxes less Good Sam discount. We would stay here again.

I concur with the previous reviews. This is a nice little campground across a parking lot from the Salton Sea. No playground. No pool. I don't know if they had showers as we used the one in our motorhome. You park on asphalt between small trees but, although they provide nice shade, they are not tall enough to block satellite reception. Heavily used RR track across the street - one train every 20 or 30 minutes. The lake smell referred to in other posts was not bad during our stay - reminded me of the smell at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Great bird watching. This is a nice park if you don't need anything other than a parking pad, hook ups and a great view of the lake. One other thing: They do take reservations if you do it more than 2 days in advance. Otherwise spots are on a space available basis and you have to renew every day. By the way - about 4 miles south on Hwy 111 is another State Park where you can dry camp right on the edge of the lake for $8 a night. No trees, no shade, no services - nothing. It's perfect. We would have stayed there had we known about it before we got settled in. We would stay here again or maybe dry camp. Either way is pleasant.

A beautiful spacious park with great camping facilities. The camping spots have lots of room around them so you aren't stacked in like so much cord wood. Friendly camp hosts. No sewer hookup but they do have a dump station. If spots aren't available you dry camp in overflow and await your turn. Max stay in the park is 14 days so spots turn over every day. It is up on a hill with a view of the lights of Phoenix. TV reception is excellent. We will definitely come back here again.

Campground is about a mile from tourist central, which makes those facilities convenient, but not right on top of you. CG is dirt and gravel so there are small puddles when it rains. Electricity is from a relatively quiet generator which runs 24/7. Showers cost 75 cents for 5 minutes. No sewer - only a dump station. Work campers run the office - very friendly and nice. You can park on a bluff overlooking the river (which has rafts of tourists floating by)and the Alaska RR on other side of canyon (3 or 4 trains per day). Very scenic and convenient to Denali NP. About TV - they have a satellite dish and they rebroadcast about 6 channels over the air on cable frequencies. Hook your TV to your antenna but configure it as if you were watching cable and you can receive the channels. This is a good place to stay to visit the park. It has the basics you need for comfortable camping. If you are the kind that needs to be entertained while camping you won't like it.

A nice, basic campground. Level gravel sites and roads with small concrete patios for each site. Small trees scattered around the campground but too small to be considered "shade." Cable TV was not working on our visit but we were able to pick up one analog TV channel from Tucson. Satellite TV would work well here. The web site says they have Wi-Fi but during our visit they had antenna problems and Wi-Fi was only available at the laundry and baths. We were able to connect to the Internet via our Verizon cell phone without problem. Very soft and good tasting water which they make themselves using reverse osmosis. Clean park, rest rooms and showers. Not much to do here for kids - no swings, no pool, no kid toys - if they need those things they will be bored. Open on east to the Sonoran desert which provided a great place to walk the dog; but, it also allows things to wander in the other way. We had wild burros wander through - they were fun to watch and were not a problem. We saw wild horses and heard coyotes. Great place to stay when going to visit Organ Pipe Cactus National Park. We were going to stay in Ajo as this park was hard to find on the web and we weren't certain what we would find when we got here. Glad we didn't stay in Ajo as this was much more convenient to the Park. This park is great if you just want a nice, clean place to park. If you must be entertained you won't like it. But for the lack of things for the kids to do, I would have given this park a 9 even with the broken Wi-Fi and non-working cable TV system.

This campground is primarily for families who are on vacation and using the lake. It is a destination resort. Can't add much to previous comments except the staff told me this year (2008) is the last year for the park. They had survey stakes with flags all over the place. Apparently they are taking out the park and going to subdivide into condos. So check before heading to this campground to make sure they are still open.

This park is a hidden gem; right on the river with beautiful views. We were going to only stay one night; ended up staying a week. 50amp/water/sewer. No cable TV but we found plenty of local stations (both analog and digital). Lots of shade trees - well maintained park. You can swim in the river or walk on the path. A major railroad track runs nearby, but the noise didn't bother us. Park host was very nice. Wi-Fi was great; they have several transmitters throughout the park so coverage is solid everywhere. No pool but you have the river. There are some swings for the kids. Be sure to bring all your supplies as this is out in the middle of nowhere, and local services are limited. We stopped here based on previous reviews, and they were right. This is a fantastic park. Staff told us that they recommend reservations on week-ends. During the week there are usually plenty of sites available. Our observation confirms this. We would not only stay here again, we would go out of our way to visit this park again.

I second the previous comments. Excellent park; nothing fancy but all the necessities. Great staff. They gave us zucchini bread on check in and free access to their garden (great tomatoes). Newspaper on doorstep in the morning. Not much for kids to do but great for adults who want to relax and spend the night. Apparently the price went up; we had to pay $23.76. Still a good deal for what we got. We would definitely stay here again.

We second all the previous comments. Wonderful campground. Sites are close to level - one block under front wheel took care of it. Not all sites had 50 amp. The office was closed for a "siesta" when we arrived so we had to walk around and find one. Cleanest and nicest bath facilities I have ever seen in a RV park. Free breakfast (except on Sunday). The cafe at the front serves incredible home cooked meals. I had chicken (inc. salad, baked/smoked Idaho potato and corn) for $10. My wife's steak cost the same. It was delicious. If I'm ever in this area again I would stay here.

We found this campground to be very nice. Yes - the sites are gravel but, if not perfectly level, are pretty close to level. We had no problems getting level. Staff was friendly and helpful. Laundry had industrial sized machines to accommodate sleeping bags of people who camp here in tents. Lounge is very nice. WiFi worked great with surprisingly high speeds. TV reception was poor but if you have satellite you will have no problems. Beautiful views of the Tetons. Sorry - no cable TV, no pool, no spa, no golf course. Just a very nice place to stay. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a wonderful little park just outside the main entrance to Glacier National Park. Heavily wooded. Sites are paved and level. 20/30/50, water, sewer. No cable TV although we were able to pick up a few local stations with our bat wing antenna. Campground hosts are wonderful. They have a campfire every evening. They have a small restaurant where you can purchase home made pies all day and breakfast in the morning. Only drawback is the campground's proximity to Hwy 2 which has heavy traffic during the day which creates some noise; but, as another reviewer commented, the traffic reduces substantially at night. We didn’t notice the noise. Restrooms were clean with plenty of hot water in the small telephone booth sized shower. Recently improved their wifi. It worked great at our spot but we were in one of the spots closest to the office. The further back you go the more difficult will be reception. Good laundry facilities. They even had pet sitting services for our dogs. The Google earth coordinates are: Latitude: 48̊27'46.42"N Longitude: 114̊ 0'10.97"W. We arrived here intending to stay just a couple of days. Ended up staying over a week. Beautiful national park and great place to stay. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice park. Yes, spots are somewhat close but there is plenty of room for slideouts plus the picnic table they provide for each spot. Clean restrooms with good water pressure. Wifi worked excellent and was free. We had a pull through spot and it was long enough for motorhome and toad. Cable tv worked super. Pendleton is an interesting town if you go into town and look around. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice clean park with wonderful hosts. Small park with some long term residents. Spaces were nicely shaded and adequate for big rigs. No bathrooms, no pool, no game room, no laundry, no Wi-Fi. Just a nice, quiet place with full hook-ups to spend a night or two. If you need more - go someplace else. Cost was $20 per night when we were there. Payment by cash or check only. About 12 miles south of The Dalles, Oregon on SR 197. Coordinates: 45d 27'04.66" N and 121d 07' 44.85" W Address: 10 NE Aiken St., Dufur, OR

We second the previous review about this being a basic campground. We had a nice, shaded, level, gravel spot, which we backed into, with 50 amp, water and sewer. That's all. Other than a laundry and card room there isn't much here. The campground was full. Manger tells me that people from "the valley", meaning Phoenix, park their RV's here all summer and commute up to get out of the heat as the elevation here is almost 7000 feet. The sign in front says it is an "adult oriented" park - meaning no kids. If you just want a place to hook up for the night, this park is just fine. The park is not well marked so look closely - it is just south of a Shell station. GPS Info: 7101 N. Hwy 89, Flagstaff. Lat/Lon N 35d 14.479m, W 111d 34.225m. Google Earth shows N 35d 14m 28.48s, W 111d 34m 10.90s

Nice clean campground. Gravel roads. We were parked in the east side of the park and could see some of the arches at Arches NP on the horizon. It was beautiful. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. If you are going to Arches and Canyonlands NP or Dead Horse Point SP, this is the campground to stay in - very convenient to both. My only criticism is that the WiFi was terrible - very slow (when it worked) and the latency was measured in thousands of ms. It was 9 miles to drive in to Moab but since we were going to the national parks, we found this campground to be excellent for our needs. Would stay here again if in this area.

Nice, clean campground. Kind of spartan in that there aren't many amenities; however, we were there to visit Capitol Reef not recreate at the campground. Nice, helpful staff. WiFi was very slow. For you technophiles the latency was terrible with ping times in the thousands of ms. That being said, for a convenient place to stay when visiting Capitol Reef, this can't be beat. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Given some previous negative reviews we weren't too sure what to expect. Turns out this is a delightful place to stay. Extremely friendly and capable staff (I believe they may have new owners since some of the previous reviews were written). Clean showers and restrooms. Very good WiFi. Nice cable TV. The campground is gravel and the pool was closed for the season but that wasn't a problem. Nice shade trees. If I have to find some fault it would be that the dog run area was very small. We would stay here again without hesitation.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds: no cell phone coverage, no tv reception, no radio reception, lots of vegetation and quiet. The other review of this site is accurate but we love it anyway. Beach access is by either walking across highway 101 at the campground entrance OR by using the trail located at the far end of the campground that follows a creek under the highway to a secluded spot on the beach. Camp host was great. Neighbors have always been great. We love this place. We have a 27 foot fifth wheel and had no trouble parking in any site we've used. I can see how bigger rigs would be more of a challenge. My wife joked that we should say that this campground is terrible so people won't come and we can have it to ourselves. But we can't do that. There are no reservations at this campground - so come early, pick a spot you can get into, and enjoy.

Concur with other posters. Location adjacent to I-5 is convenient for travelers but noisy. However, noise of freeway was drowned out by the noise of our air conditioner running in the 101 degree heat. Clean, has friendly owners and free and fast Wi-Fi. For an overnight stay on our way somewhere else, it was perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice campground - quiet. Owners are great. The wifi has great access but the throughput is really slow. Since they are so far from town apparently their only internet access is via satellite. So there is quite a lag between hitting the key and seeing a response. But if you have patience, it works fine. Spots are a bit narrow. Multiple slide outs will fit but it will be tight. There is no cable TV. Use your outside antenna but expect to pick up only a few Canadian stations. We wanted a quiet location with nice amenities close to, but not in, Port Angeles. This was perfect. Would stay there again.

I concur with other recent reviews. A delightful park with great management. We were in spot 30 which is quite a ways back towards the back of the park. Wifi worked most of the time (even when it did not, the signal was strong but I couldn't get any thruput) - when it didn't I could hook up to the motel next door. Road in front was not an issue. Real nice to have a market across the street. Would definitely stay here again.

A very clean park. Manager was quite friendly and helpful. Sites are not fancy but are adequate with sufficient room for slides. Approx. one block walk to beach. Wifi worked great - manager very proud of his wifi system. Wifi cost $2.00 per day - cable TV was another $1.50. Good Sam discount. If you have kids who need a pool or playground to stay entertained and don't want to walk to the beach - don't stay there. It was a great location for the things we wanted to do and see. We would definitely stay there again.

This is basically a flat spot at the fairgrounds on which to park your RV. The sites have 20 amp electrical and water - nothing else. There are no restrooms, showers, dump stations or any other facilities. Some of the sites are shaded by trees. Not withstanding these shortcomings the site is perfect if visiting friends in Hillsboro, Oregon and you need a convenient place to camp. The site is directly across the street from the Hillsboro airport. Not withstanding the location, it was surprisingly quiet. Fair staff is friendly and considerate. I would stay there again if in Hillsboro. On Google Earth you can find the RV park at latitude 45°31'52.35"N and longitude 122°56'58.99"W.

What a delightful park. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Clean park with mostly gravel roads. Many trees so satellite reception might be difficult. But who cares - each site comes with free cable TV and free wireless Internet (which worked fast and without problem in our trailer). We would definitely stay there again should we find ourselves in the area.
