Owners told us that the park had been bought by the government and will be closing soon. Park to be dismantled, levee lowered and land returned to the Yakima River. Park had both campers and long term residents. Dusty/gravel roads. OK for short term stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled here in on Friday of the labor day weekend. It appeared to be clean and the owners were friendly. However, when they escorted us to our site, we were on a dirt room (very dusty). They were, however, spraying to keep the dust down. However, when we got to our site it was like parking in a dirt parking lot. Not a sign of grass near our site. There appeared to be many permanent sites. We really did not like the looks or feel of this campground and left immediately. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We would have rated this campground lower, but the staff was friendly so that's what brought it up. That's the only positive thing about this park. We should have read reviews here before camping. The complaints previously listed are accurate. The spaces and roads are incredibly tight. We barely made our turn into our spot. We have a 39' motorhome. I would not recommend trying to bring a rig this big into this campground. Other large rigs had similar problems coming in/out of the park. Roads within campground are way too tight for large rigs. Playground not in good shape and not much for kids to do. This place has potential but needs a lot of work. We definitely will not return unless there are substantial improvements. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very disappointed in this KOA. When we arrived, after the office was closed, they did have a map waiting for us with the directions to our campsite. We couldn't find the campsite due to the fact that it was in a gravel parking area! So, we asked someone who was near by and he was very helpful and explaining to us that he lived at the park in a mobile home. So, he suggested that we just find an open spot and set up for the night and talk with the manager in the morning. When we got up the next day we were shocked to see not only old mobile homes but also old camping trailers with permanent residents. The manager did find us a better spot but it was next to the old camping trailers which also had broken down cars that had garbage filled in them. The bathrooms were clean and we did enjoy the ducks flying in and out of the pond. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park has very narrow sites. Roads are mostly un-paved and very dusty. Too many full time residents with cars coming and going all hours of the day and night. Lakes are nasty with ducks everywhere along with feathers and droppings. Watch out where you step. You have to pick up after your pets but the owners think duck waste is OK. Complain to the owners and they act as if they don't know what you are talking about. Save your money, don't go to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very narrow sites, hazardous to your RV. Hornets nests in electrical boxes. Everything closes down at 8:00PM, nothing for the kids to do after that. Traffic going in and out all night long as is also a trailer park. Kicked everyone out of pool during storm and never reopened pool afterwards till next morning. Wildlife(skunk) roaming park - very smelly. Would not ever go back to this park - don't waste your money!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I reserved way back in January for May and was disappointed that we were put in a site that was actually too small for our rig just because the park was very busy that weekend with kids soccer tournaments. Other than that the park was just ok, sites all grass or dirt, close together. No cable or internet. A little pricey for what you got. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a wonderful place to stay. Every fall (prior to the purchased of our trailer) we would go in with a group of friends and stay in a few of the two room "Kamping Kabins". Then for the next couple of days we would all tour the Yakima Wine Country. The showers located proximal to the "Kamping Kabins" would usually be locked up for the upcoming winter temperatures, but that was fine, we would just use the main restroom/shower area which was clean and tidy. The mornings were so crisp and bright. I would take a warm comfy shower and then scurry back to the "Kamping Kabins" in the crisp morning air as the steam rose from my wet hair to get ready for a wonderful day touring and tasting wine from the nearby Yakima Wineries. In the evening we would always have a fire in the fire pits in front of the "Kamping Kabins" which were located near the shore of the lake. The fire would reflect in the water of the lake and it was absolutely mesmerizing with its contrasting warmth to the cold night air. I was soon nodding off in no time and sleeping in one of the comfy beds in the "Kamping Kabin". The owners always made sure that we had portable electric radiators for heat in the "Kamping Kabins" for the cold fall nights and I can honestly say that we have very fond memories from staying here and would gladly stay here again. The park is clean, and whimsical. Especially with the permanent man fishing in his boat in the lake. I love all the spider webs that fisherman has strung all around him and the sign as you leave that reminds you to check to see if you have everything, including "your wife". :) We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This is a different kind of review because we chose not to stay here once we arrived but because the only other reviewer gave this place a 10 we thought it was necessary to post an opposing view. We called ahead but only got a recording. Upon arrival, Saturday around noon, we found the office and store locked with a note saying check-in was only between 9-11 or 4-6. We looked around the park for available sites, park was mostly empty, and found most of the sites to be unlevel and covered with leaves. The ponds were full of scum and the river access, if there is any, is heavily overgrown. Definitely not a 10 in our book. Try Sportsmans State Park around the corner. Much better choice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean restrooms, very clean! Friendly staff escorted me to my site and helped me back into my site, other sites were pull through, but this one was waterfront so it was not. A great KOA! We camped here in a camper.
