We were in site #16, which is RIVERFRONT. The view of the river was SPECTACULAR; however we were hemmed in by the rig behind us. The configuration of the park is such that #16 and #17, with the most spectacular views of the McKenzie River, are unhappily intertwined. If the rig in #16 wanted to leave prior to the rig in site #17, the rig in #17 would have to move to let the rig in #16 leave. What a weird circumstance!!! However, we were here with a group, so it worked for us. It would NOT work for individual campers, who were not together. We did not use any of the park's facilities, so could not rate them. The park advertises "WiFi." Do NOT believe it. We were here 5 days and never were able to get out on the internet. Did not need to deal with park employees, so no rating there. Highly recommend for the gorgeous McKenzie River and surrounding natural, heavily forested beauty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rated 10 just for our riverfront space. Park is a bit run down and the front of the park needs a bulldozer. Get down to the river-front spaces though and the view and sounds are awesome. No highway noise and friendly folks running the place. Try the skillet for breakfast / lunch. Dinner at nearby Holiday Farms Resort was not great. Will return! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground itself was small: didn't have alot of grassy or play areas. There were upper and lower sites: the lower ones all located right on the McKenzie River. Heaven! I've been to better campgrounds but the river and the managers of this one made the a place where I would come back too. They were so nice and helpful in every way as we had some problems on our way down from Washington and the host did everything he could to help us with our problems. His wife was also the best, helpful and nice in every way. I've never met nicer people: even hugged both of them upon leaving. I would stay here again if a river spot was open. There are lots of places outside the campground, in the area to explore and hike around. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this park. Even though it is an older park primarily geared towards long term residents, we were surprised to find most of those sites vacant and most monthly/yearly tennants are all together along the west side of the park. The managers, a retired couple staying there in their RV are without a doubt the nicest hosts I have encountered in years. We arrived late and they were very gracious and got us right into a spot even though my reservation had been lost in cyberspace. The next morning they had us right in a premium riverside site as soon as another rig notified them that they were pulling out. They knew it was our anniversary and wanted us to have a great site. And great it was. Right on the river! Needless to say we left them a nice gift and will definitely stay there again. The park's website does nothing to show the beauty there. The park is well kept and the laundry, showers and community areas and facilities although old, are absolutely spotless and in good order. Neat place! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice country park, well away from the highway, beside a rushing river. All sites are well shaded, some on river bank, some with view of river, others bit further back with carports. Nicely kept grounds, a good place to relax. Its off rte 126 East of Blue River. We camped here in a Motorhome.
