This is a BLM campground located on the McKay Reservoir near McKay, Idaho. The place appears recently renovated or redesigned. Quiet, away from any major towns; the nearest was tiny McKay a few miles south. Plenty of stars at night. A beautiful reservoir for swimming, fishing, boating, etc. On Highway 93 in the plateau of southern Idaho. Craters of the Moon is less than an hour away. Beautiful peaks to the east. Pit toilets and no showers, but electricity and water are available, as well as a dump station.

An okay place to stay for a night or for visiting the casino, the place is clean, the help friendly, an access is easy to get in and out of the sites. The nearest bathrooms, for those without internal facilities, are a hike across the parking lot to the Hotel. No showers are available. We wouldn't stay here again unless we specifically were going to the casino.

A beautiful beach front campground near Cape Flattery on the Makah Indian Reservation. We were treated to a beautiful sunset followed by a pass over of the International Space Station from horizon to horizon. The place is a great place for beach combing, playing with the kids, and fun on a mild surf beach. You can rent cabins or stay in your rig or tent here. The ocean is a few steps away and visible from the campsite. The men's room was out of order, and the ladies' room door lock was broken, but a chair was provided to block the door. There's plenty to do around the area, and this place is not really a resort, just a nice, pretty campground with full hookups in the RV area.

This was a good place to stop for a few days to work. It doesn't appear this is an advertised place for camping, since we had the entire place to ourselves. And we had to leave by 9/3 to make room for the fair/expo attendees. We only saw the management when we paid, otherwise, we only saw caretakers. I do wish Spokane had more and better choices for RVs though.

What a great little campground. Other than our site being next to busy US 12, this was a great place to stop for the night. We'd stay longer if we were going to explore the area. Next time, for sure. Clean, quiet, plenty of service from the hosts to the amenities. They even have scales in the bathrooms, which you might or might not appreciate. The setting is pretty, surrounded by the pines. The jays wake you in the morning; I even heard a chicken cackle. No bear activity while we were here, but in bear country we always store our food inside the rig. Easy access to Lolo (only 2 miles away) and Missoula.

Nice, quiet park with easy access to the sites of SE Oregon. It was still pretty cool in May, and most of the migratory birds had already flown the coop. The park was clean, the food at the restaurant was good, the management friendly and helpful. It's a good place to stop for sightseeing. There's fuel here, and it's not too pricey, considering it's an hour to Burns and a couple hours to Fields. We plan on staying here again.

I've repeatedly stayed here over the last two years. Spent the winter of 08/09 here, which was the worst Portland had seen in 40 years. This is by far the nicest park in the Portland/suburban area with easy access for big rigs. Mine is 70 feet bumper to bumper. Roads are wide and paved. Management is more than helpful and always friendly. Neighbors are friendly and fun. If you don't like noisy jets, this isn't the place for you. It's under the westerly approach and take off of the international airport. Commercial aircraft run most hours and military jets take off and land a few times each day. Occasionally you get to see one stand on its tail and shoot straight up. Easy access to the city. Great access for bicycling; Portland is a friendly biking city. It's across the street from the Columbia River and within a mile from a beach. Great restaurants nearby. Close to the commuter rail service. The place is well groomed and kept that way. There's a dedicated spot for dogs to do their business. A fenced dog park is a mile away and an arboretum is about a 1/2 mile away.

I dropped into this park at 11:30 pm planning on a quick night sleep in my tent and on to my destination. What a mistake. Admittedly, the park looked very nice as I drove around looking for the tent spots. There were no late arrival instructions or way to pay. Of course, the office was closed. The RV spaces weren't real crowded but they were pretty close. I doubt I could get my 70 ft of RV in the place. It looked very clean for a good sized park. The bathroom was clean. I pitched the tent and hit the sack. But not for long. The tent sites are backed up against I-90. Every 30 seconds I woke with a rush of adrenalin wondering if the semi barreling down the freeway was coming through my tent site. I couldn't have been more than a couple hundred feet from the freeway. On the other side of the campground is a railroad, that ran every hour or so. I barely slept for 4 hours, got up at 4:00 am, packed up, and left.

For an overnighter on the way to visit the slot machine store - you can't call the 'casino' anything else but that - it's a good stop. Easy in and out. Clean. Quiet. Easy access for satellite set up.

The good: close to the 9th wonder of the world, The Steens Mtn.; the managers and owner are knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and all around good folk; very long spaces; clean campground; really nice bathrooms and showers; sites are pretty level and all gravel, rock and dirt; nothing luxurious about this place (resort is an overstatement); a good place to be if you're main interest is leaving and exploring the area - which you should do. The bad: be sure to check your site first. There are some really nice, long pull-thrus along the west side and some long and not so great pull-thrus on the south side. Some of the south side spaces have 'humps', level gravel spots that are followed by a significant drop to the driveway out of the site. Some of these drop a good foot on a very short grade. Some sites have trees close on both sides, possibly making your positioning difficult to easily reach both the sewer and water/power connections. The ugly: the road over the mountain usually doesn't open until early to mid-July, just in time for the mosquitoes. In this campground they are annoying, but in other campgrounds on the mountain they are down right nasty. Bring plenty of DEET. Later in the season the mosquitoes drop off and bees pick up. But, hey, you're in the wilderness. Make sure you gas up in Burns. It's 60 miles to Burns and 60 miles to Fields. As of this report, the store at French Glen down the hill has unleaded and diesel, and it's expensive. (But so is Fields.)

I suppose you can say this park has big rig access, but it's not designed for big rigs. It has very few long sites and the 8? foot site we got took some maneuvering to get through and into with our 5er and semi. The pull-thru was curved and trees were close enough that careful consideration was paid to not damage the rig or the trees. The rangers said they'd never seen our combination in the park before. Since this is a state park, to say it's BUSY is an understatement. It's a great family park, like most of Oregon's state parks. It's in a beautiful setting, like most of Oregon's parks. It offers easy access to a whole lot of what Oregon has to offer outdoors. It's affordable. Downsides are 20 Amp electricity only. Very few sites with sewer, and the sewer connections are nearly nonfunctional. They are side-feed pipes, meaning drainage goes in from the side, not the top, and at ground level. We couldn't screw the sealing ring into it, so we just set the hose into the pipe and placed something over it to hold it in place. This means you don't drain your black tank, because there's back drainage out of the pipe onto the ground. The good thing is that the rangers said they're closing the park this winter for 7 months and refitting all the sites with 50 amp and new sewer systems. It'd be great if they widened the sites a little and added some more big ones.

If you like easy access to and from the freeway (I-5) and in and out of your space, while being in the country, this is a pretty okay place. It's located right off I-5 about 20 miles north of Eugene. It's 6 miles to Harrisburg, a very small town; 15 miles to Junction City (Country Coach factory is here), a little bigger town with the nearest grocery store, and 10 miles to Coburg (where Monaco and Marathon factories are). It's located on the edge of a massive grain field that is harvested in July. So, there's a real country feel here. It's pretty quiet. The freeway noise is noticeable, but not annoying. Geese fly over constantly and swallows nest nearby. Ducks frequent the place. Country roads are all around. There's a lot of history in the area. The price is very reasonable. The park is older, but well kept. There are a lot of monthly residents, but the park is clean, orderly, and quiet. The managers are friendly and helpful. Tenting is allowed, but the rate is the same for RVs. Many of the spaces are positioned end to end, so your back window looks into someone else's front window. The managers put you into a space that will work for you whether you have a 5th or a motorhome. The downside of this place is the cottonwoods shed in June and July, so it's constantly "snowing" cottonwood seeds for a couple weeks. For those with grass allergies, this isn't the place for your. The field is harvested in mid summer, creating a lot of dust and grass debris. If that doesn't bother you, it's great, cheap entertainment watching the fields being cut and combined. I don't consider this a downside, but there is a trucking terminal next to the park, where trucks flow through mostly during the day with a few nightly arrivals. I heard them occasionally. If all you need is a place to pull off for the night and sleep, you have two nearby options: a state rest area 2 miles south of the park (on both northbound and southbound sides) and a large dirt parking lot just outside the park used by truckers. Of course, neither have RV facilities. We'd stay here again.

This is a very nice park. It's clean, the help is very friendly and always available. We've been here several times. The best things about it are (1) it's incredibly spacious. It's really designed for monster rigs. It's the only park in the Eugene area that is. 45 foot bus + a large car is easy to get in and out. You can't say that about ANY of the other local parks (Harrisburg, 10 miles north isn't local in my mind). I've been to all of them. (2) Help is incredibly friendly and service is excellent. (3) Clean with lots of nice areas around it. Individual shower rooms. Large baths. (4) Access to Eugene is very easy. Down side of this place is that it's incredibly noisy, with the constant freeway traffic just a few hundred feet away. And the price.

Like its Eugene sister park, this one is also very nice and clean and pricey. It's certainly top of quality in appearance. Unlike its sister park, however, it's way too tight for large rigs. We had to pull a slide in part way because a wood post was too close on one side and a tree on the other. We'd stay here again for a nighter. Way too expensive IMP.

Nice park for dry camping in the off season. Quiet and empty. Staff is polite and helpful. Plenty to do in the area and at the lake during the summer. This is pure dry camping. The water available from water faucets is not drinkable - a general condition around the entire valley (I lived in the valley for 5 years prior to camping here). But during our stay here, there was a boil water notice because of bacteria found in the water, which seemed to be particular to the park water system. There are two showers and two toilets/sinks for each loop of 20 to 30 sites each. While the bathroom was clean, the shower (I used once) never got beyond just warm, is in a large non-heated room without a shower curtain, and had a mature female black widow nesting in a corner above the seat and clothes hanger. A must is to very carefully check clothes before putting them on. The lake is large (about 4 x 2 miles) and when full offers cat -fishing, great kayaking, boating, wind surfing, and more. It's a very shallow lake (no more than about 12 feet). Best time to visit here is in the late spring after a wet winter. The north end of the lake has wet marshes with lots of water fowl and is usually stocked with catfish then.

Overall, this is a nice park, especially for a quick in and out with access to grocery, casinos, freeway, and local attractions. Sites are very close. No cable, only a few local channels. BUT, and it's a big BUT, the sites not very big rig friendly, at least in the definition of my big rig. Maybe we need a new definition of what a big rig is. For motor homes up to 40 feet, there's easy access in and out of the sites after you unhook your tow vehicle. But, if you're a 40 ft 5er being pulled by a large pickup or medium-duty truck, it's a pain. Forget about getting out if your neighbor's car/truck is parked in front of or next to their motorhome or trailer. Especially if you're in the row next to the main building. Everybody with anything bigger than a Ford Explorer has to park sideways across the front of the trailer because the side parking spaces for the site are for a compact-size car. Other than this one issue, it's a real nice little park.

This place rates an 8 or 9 in cleanliness, nice layout, roomy, easy access from the freeway, fairly quiet (street noise). It rates a 10 on the staff. They're wonderful, friendly folk. It's a little overpriced for what if offers. At $35/night off season, I'd expect 50A and cable TV. It rained the day we pulled in - poured is really what it did. My tires carved 4-inch mud troughs through the grass so I could get into the site, which was a wee bit narrow for our 60 feet of rig. Sites are pretty level though. What killed the rating above is the water is brown every time it comes on. I thought it was just at my site, but it's the same in the park's showers and toilets. Once the water runs a few seconds, it clears up, but there's definitely a water problem. I didn't drink it without a filter and ended up buying water from the nearby Wal-Mart. I'd stay here again, but after confirming the water is clean.

Decent campground. Site was level side to side and front to back. Sites are gravel, but solid and not muddy when it rained (and it poured the night we pulled in). Sites are too narrow and bordered on the sides by a wooden curb. We couldn't easily position the rig with the steps out without having to carefully navigate around the curb to avoid a twisted ankle. The pull-through sites are side-by-side. Overall, it's a nice, clean campground with a picnic table and a fire ring. We couldn't pick up the Wi-Fi signal at our site. No 50A. Pricey considering it lacks 50A, TV, and decent Wi-Fi.

There is another KOA in Niagara Falls. This is the one on the north end of Grand Island, just off the I-190. Overall, this seems like a nice park for a family. There's an amusement park next door and many things for the kids to do on-site. The grounds were clean the night we stayed there. Easy access to the falls. Our site and the ones around us were not level and they were muddy. It looked like they carved a spot out of the grass and spread gravel on it. We were put in a spot that backed up to the freeway, so it was noisy. Way too expensive. All the parks around the falls are expensive, but $75/night is exploitation. In the 6 weeks of traveling coast to coast, this is the most expensive park I've been in. It doesn't offer that much value - least for me. I spent less in New Jersey with easy, cheap, walking access to Manhattan.

Can you say MUD? The campground is well maintained and clean - until it rains. Then it's mud everywhere because all the roads and sites are covered with road base, which is a combination of dirt and gravel. If they used just gravel, that would reduce the amount of mud that comes up. This is a very large park and well laid out. The gravel/dirt pads were pretty level side to side, but ours was carved out of a slope, so the exit was an upslope, which made it awkward to unhook and hook the 5th-wheel. The staff was helpful and polite. Overall, it's a nice and expensive park, but when it rains, there's no keeping the rig clean inside.

A very nice adult campground. Quiet, shady, plenty of room in the sites. Easy access in and out. Too many mosquitoes - it's located on a swamp/marsh. It would get higher marks, but it's way too expensive, even in the off season. $10/per person per night extra for more than 2 adults is just plain silly. Otherwise, the other reviews pretty much say it all.

What a wonderful place to go if you like the water, especially estuaries. It's located right on the Chesapeake with plenty of waterfowl right in the park. We were scolded by a Great Blue Heron. Clean with plenty of room around the site. Lots of interesting people who stay there seasonally. We didn't camp during peak season, but it looks like it gets very busy in the summer with many kids and families. It's definitely a destination place, from the looks of it, and folks who stay there seasonally say it gets busy with lots of fun things to do. The only thing negative is that everything about it is pricey. Kayak/boat rentals are expensive, but if you bring your own, there are miles of paddling to be had. We will return.

This is a great, simple campground with lots of shade and wide open spaces. 31 sites are W/E sites for RVs and 21 without W/E. It's located in Old Bethpage on Long Island, about 30 miles from Brooklyn just off the Long Island Expressway (I495). Access to the city is through the LI Railroad (LIRR). The whole island is easily accessible by car, and there are plenty of car rental services around. Getting to the park from Jersey over the Verazzano Narrow's Bridge is not the recommended way to go if you have a big rig. The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Brooklyn has a 12 foot height restriction, and all truck and big rig traffic over 12 ft is routed through Brooklyn and not well marked. It's a nightmare drive. Best way to get to the park is to go way around the city, avoiding New York altogether and take the I295 over the Throgs Neck Bridge to the Long Island Expressway. Tent sites are available for less than the W/E spaces. A very nice park for visitors to LI and the city. We definitely plan on returning.

Nice park. Very large. Lots of amenities. Nice pools. The staff is very helpful for touring the capitol, and you can get to it without driving into the city. Overall, it gets high marks. But I was expecting a whole lot more for $75 a night for 6 people, including $5/night for each extra person. Our site was gravel. The only way the trailer would fit was to back it right into the bank of the land behind the site. The back of the trailer hung out a good 12 feet beyond the parking area. And the site backed up against the I95 freeway, which is constantly way noisy. The truck had to go in sideways in front of the trailer and hang out in the road. I'm still in sticker shock for these places on the east coast compared to the same thing anywhere else. I wouldn't come back here except to tour the capitol again. It's price doesn't justify the value compared to other places I've been.

If you want to visit Manhattan and the other boroughs, this is the place to stop. This place is spendid, but you get what you pay for - location, location, location. As described, it's a large parking lot, but the sites are wide enough and long enough for big rigs, plus there's overflow parking that they don't charge for. Nor do they charge extra for more than two people. This industry is a racket, charging up to $5 or more per "extra" person, even when dry camping. We even found a park who charges differently for immediately family, versus friends and extended family in your party. We were pleasantly surprised to find this park didn't charge extra. Restrooms were fairly clean considering the park also shares bathrooms with the marina, and folks working in the boatyard. The men's room wasn't well monitored, though, with paper often out and soap being out for several days. If you say something to the management, they usually take care of it right away. The place is quiet except on weekends when a tent turns into a club on Friday and Saturday. It's noisy until 3 am, but there's plenty of police at the club, and there's a security guard at the park. We walked to and from Manhattan using the PATH train till wee hours of the morning several times and never felt unsafe. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the neighbors were also friendly. We'll definitely stay here again, because it's so convenient.

I'm constantly amazed at what RV parks charge per night and that they charge $5 and up for extra people so you can hook up, run some water, use some electricity, dump your tanks and move on. When parks have amenities, like game rooms and miniature golf courses, they charge. This park would rate higher, but at 45 and up a night, plus extra person charges, I can't give it a higher rating. The park is very nice, with a pond, nice clean spaces, and very clean restrooms and showers; a game room and a lot to do for the kids. It really is a nice park. The pull through we were put in, though was pretty close to the neighbors. With the awning out, it was about a foot from the neighbors slide out, and there wasn't much room to walk between the rigs. We'd camp here again.

Stopped here for a one-nighter. Easy access to/from the turnpike. Sites weren't exactly level, but we were able to roll the trailer up on a block. The sites were nice with gravel floors. Help was friendly and helpful. Everything looked clean and was in working order. Glad I wasn't any bigger though. I'm about 60 ft front to back with truck and trailer, and just barely made it out without taking down posts or scraping trees. I'd stay here again and would consider a longer stay if I wanted to visit the area.

This is a very nice place if you like camping in the 'city' with hundreds of other people. It's a great family/kids park and one with a sense of 'community.' There's so much to do here, the kids will never get bored. And it seems very well guarded and safe. We were put in the overflow area because it was completely full. Overflow was a much better place, because we had a huge field away from the crowds and almost to ourselves. The pricing, though, is beyond ridiculous. $32/night, plus $8/night per extra person, $5 for any one who comes up for the day; and that's for tent/dry camping; and you pay for all three nights (holiday weekend) regardless if you're staying one or 3. But, if you're a family, you get a lot for the fee. They had older showers that only ran when you hold the valve on. A newer shower building was nice and clean, but pretty small. I rate it high because, while it's high-priced, it really is a very nice family park if you like camping in the 'city.'

Nice clean park with easy access from the freeway (I-90) without the freeway noise. Sites are pretty close, but not uncomfortable. It's okay for a short stay. Staff was helpful. Sites (gravel) were easy to get into and out of.

The place was very big. Lots of sites all on grass, which meant mud where there was dirt. Access roads are paved, everything else is grass. It rained hard just before we arrived, so there was some standing water and mud. The facilities were filthy. It's right under the flight path of the airport and a train track runs right behind the park. It's priced too high for what they offer, but was okay for a night, and they didn't want more for extra people. Best thing is it's quick access to the freeway. I'd go back if I couldn't find something else reasonably priced.

Better than average place. Very quiet, but it's very remote. The owners are friendly and helpful. Facilities aren't modern, but everything works and is kept very clean, from the bathrooms/showers to the laundry and the grounds. Inside all sites are easy to access. Plenty of room between sites, too. Only thing that needs to be highlighted with bright lights is the road to the park: The one that got picked by our GPS navigation had 12 ft high and 12 ft wide tunnels. Pretty drive, but no way will any big rig go that route. Plus, the switchbacks are 270 to 360 degree turns. The big rig road goes through Hermosa. Best to call the camp and verify your route and rig size.

This was an average park. Pretty good for an overnighter. Restrooms and showers were clean. Inside roads and parking areas were gravel and pretty level. Sites are close, but not uncomfortable for a short stay. I wouldn't stay here for more than a couple nights because the sites are so close. Staff was courteous and helpful. The place is very easy to access from the Freeway (I-90). Not sure if the # of sites is 30. I didn't count, but there a couple rows of pull-thrus and some tent sites.

What a great place. Can't wait to go back and stay longer. The owners are real people, not just managers. It's extremely quiet, spots are fairly wide, but there's plenty of parking available. It's all on grass, and we were there during dry weather. Not sure how it would be in the rain, if it ever rains there. There's much to do around the area with the Lava Beds NM only 10 miles away along a pot-holed road (not so good for our big toter, but easy enough for a car or truck). It would be easy enough to spend a week there and not take it all in. Medicine Lake and the volcanic area is only 25 miles away. Close enough to Tulelake and Merril to get things you absolutely need. We'll go there again, and stay much longer, just to relax.

For a place to get away from the crowds, yet have plenty of things to do, this is perfect. If you like flat water kayaking and/or fishing, the Siuslaw River is a wonderful, slow, quiet waterway near the park and downstream. Upriver there are plenty of places to enjoy swimming or floating the rapids. While the main highway outside the park is busy most of the day with large vehicles, it quiets down at night. The main road turns toward Eugene 40 miles away, but a spur road goes on and is quiet and comfortable for a long bike ride. (In fact, there are a couple more roads like that.) The spur road makes a nice drive all the way to Triangle Lake where there's a natural water slide. Other roads take off into the forest. A very short walk from the park takes you to a nicely stocked market, hardware store, couple eateries, bar, and Saturday Market. Florence and the coast is only 14 miles away with a choice of sand dunes to the south or ocean beaches to the north. Several large lakes south of Florence offer fishing and boating. The spaces were level gravel and wide enough to put out slides and awnings without being in the neighbor's space. Some spots are under trees. Laundry was free. There were some full-time residents, but they were all friendly, as were the owners and the management. I was pleasantly surprised by an offer from the manager to loan a 30 amp extension cord and tools to fix a problem on my toter. If you're looking for high-end and expensive, this isn't it, but if you want not crowded and convenient, it's worth a visit. We'd return. We rented for a month, so the daily rate was very low, but we also paid electricity, which wasn't much.

Park was clean. Staff and neighbors were friendly and helpful. It was easy to find and conveniently off the freeway about 1/2 mile. Plenty of shopping around: Walmart, Costco, Home Depot, restaurants within a mile. Tucson Mall is about 5 miles away and easy to reach. Lots of trains and you could hear them clearly night and day. Spots are fairly level, but you should check your rig. Big problem with this park is that, while they say it's big rig compatible. It's not. I saw several 40 footers work at getting into the spots. My 36ft 5er and 24ft truck just barely got in. Just about all the pull throughs and many of the back ins had power service posts, phone posts, and water pipes bent over from being run into. You get a nice little cement pad with a picnic table, but in some spots the corner of the pads were broken from being run over to get into the space. We'd like to stay here again, because of convenience to everything after being in the boonies for a month, but wouldn't with our big rig.

Clean. Very large sites. Propane on site, but expensive. It's lots cheaper down the road a mile. Restaurant on site, but poor food and lousy service. Mail pick up/notice on site, but someone opened a package without my permission before it got to me. The water is supposedly reverse osmosis filtered, but it didn't taste like it. There's a decent grocery store 1/2 mile away. The water at the store is better than the park's. Lots of full-timers/snowbirds here, who pretty much run the park. Our neighbors were _very _ neighborly. Spent several afternoons visiting with them over food and drinks. Plenty of open space around, great for ATVs, hiking, biking, even an RC aircraft field nearby. The park is very quiet, and I get the impression that the full-timers like it that way. There's way too much lighting at night. It's a lot like the suburbs. You can only see the major stars. All else was polluted by street lamps. Close enough to Quartzsite to take in the shopping, but without the January Quartzsite insanity. What I really disliked about this park was that many of the older folks running the park shouldn't be. They're snowbirds or full-timers who have no concept of helpfulness, marketing, or customer service. They seem to be there to get their free space rent and that's it. I would stay here again, but not as long, would not accept mail here or eat at the restaurant, and only buy propane down the road a mile. My general opinion is that it's overpriced for the service quality you get.

For a Forest Service campground, this is a highly desirable place. Most of the sites are not designed for anything over 30 feet. But there are a few that can accommodate large rigs if you're good at parking and don't mind putting your tow car in the extra vehicle lot. If you have a high rig, when you leave, you have to watch the trees overhead. Many sites put you overlooking the beach. Step out the door, down a small hill and you're on the sand. Some sites have electric and water, but most are designed for smaller rigs. None of the ocean front sites have electricity, but several RVs parked in these spots ran generators. This place requires reservations in the summers. I'd go here again.

This place is the jewel of Oregon. Set in the middle of a working cattle ranch ten miles from the small town of Lakeview, with a fishable, kayakable, boatable lake, lots of things/places to explore, and incredible views and clean air. This place is where you go to get away and explore south-central Oregon or just to get away. The owners throw on a great breakfast on the weekends. There's a wonderful guided nature trail, lots of wildlife, including antelope wandering around at all times of the day. The Wi-Fi isn't great, but there's a clear view of the southern sky. I would and will go here again. It'll be a standard stopping place.

This really isn't an RV park. It's a Mobile Home park with a few overnight/short-term RV sites. For the price, you get friendly, decent service, large laundry, easy access to all that the Willamette Valley and Cascades has to offer, nearby shopping, dining, and U of O, and you have a clean area. It's great for a short term stay. The downsides of this place are that a major train track runs right at the back of the RV parking area, with traffic on it 4 or 5 times a day/night. Also, the spaces are pretty tight, yet adequate for large rigs. I wouldn't want to try to get 42 feet plus a car through the site when the place is full. We stayed in an off season. I wouldn't return to this place during a busy season, just because I don't think I could get my 60 feet of equipment into and out of it.

For an overnight stop, this park is very convenient, clean, and spacious. The staff is helpful and full of customer service. The owner lives on site, so he has a vested interest in your satisfaction. For satellite users, there's a clear view of the southern sky. I was there during a hot spell in the summer. The pool is too small for the number of sites/people. It's very pet friendly. The downside of this place is that Interstate 5 is outside your window, so it's incredibly noisy 24 hours a day. But that's why it's so convenient. Other downer is the price. This is the most expensive place I've every stayed. It's too expensive for what you get, unless you're just heading through.
