TTN rate. We spent July 4th here and the local fireworks displays were interesting. The park was packed, both sides of the road. The only real issue is the section we were able to locate a site. The utilities are so far out toward the road that two lengths of hose are required and a 30 AMP extension cord is required to reach 45 feet. One stanchion serves two sites, located in the middle and at the road but with several feet of brush and woods between sites. The 5 MPH limit doesn't mean much to most campers, and dust this time of the year is pretty bad. In this section only a few sites had anything that resembled a fire ring. No cell phone, Wi-Fi, no sewers (dump station) but all the resort buildings and activities were well done. This is a fairly remote location but a Safeway store is located in Newport. We will return when in the Spokane area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate for TTN. This CG could rate higher but lacks sewer and free Wi-Fi is terrible. Cell phones were near full strength but the Wi-Fi just didn't connect very well and oh so slow. The CG amenities were in excellent condition. This time of the year one can't avoid dusty conditions in CG's with gravel/dirt roads, but if all would observe the 5MPH limit it minimizes the dusty impact. Laundry, restrooms/showers, pool and lodges are clean, the staff friendly and helpful. There are fire rings in nearly every site. The staff pickup daily makes the rounds and collects garbage from the trash cans throughout the CG. Having to dump holding tanks on the way out of camp, or paying the pumper $25 each time, is not very convenient. This is a nice CG. Except for Newport about 8 miles, it is a very long way from most everything, but beautiful surroundings and peace and quiet are a huge plus. We have been here several times and will return when back through the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
TTN Platinum Plus member. Park divided into TTN and KOA sections. KOA sites are wider & cleaner and (as usual) TTN sites need maintenance (widening & weed control). Found a nice site (113) up on hill and could even get DISH TV through an opening in the trees. Amenities are good but far from camping. Played bingo, billiards, and used the pool/jacuzzi. Need an extra mid day "adult only" hour at pools. Lake and beach is disgusting and nothing more than a fishing hole. Yuk! Next time, we would try to check into public swimming at Diamond Lake just a few miles up the road. Took a day trip (about 45 miles) to San Point and enjoyed Lake Pend Orielle very much. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an odd park. Half of the park is a KOA and half is Thousand Trails. The entire park has no sewer. The TT portion has 30 amp and water but everything is old. The KOA portion has new electric boxes and water spigots. Typical of TT that they are not putting the money into the TT portion of the park. There is a nice lake and swimming pool. The staff were nice, but the store was not open the entire time we were there. We might stay there again, only due to the fact that we do not have to pay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a rather strange park. It has a public road running through it and it seems that it was much larger at some time in the past. Many of the old sites have been abandoned and are now unusable. Further, Thousand Trails franchised about half the remaining sites to KOA so the rangers are working for both, but they are all quite friendly and helpful. Most of the roads and many sites have been recently graveled and are in good condition. However, there are only water and 30amp electricity available in the TTN sites, no sewers. The Verizon cell phone and air card service is quite good and while there are many trees there are a number of sites that are satellite friendly. Little Diamond Lake is some 32 acres and has paddle boats available but we did not try them. There are many ball fields available and a very nice pool and spa. A real plus here is the quiet and solitude, there are no freeways, airports or trains to disturb you: makes for a relaxed stay. Since this is a TTN Preserve there is no charge for members, the KOA sites have their own set of charges. We camped here in a Motorhome.
