First time staying here and it was a good experience. Sites are nice as there are plenty of trees of varying heights around and between sites. However, maneuvering around the park is easy as the roads and sites are asphalt. One of just a few parks we have been to which turn out to look like their website - which is always great. The hosts are very nice, friendly, and the office has brochures and maps to make the stay and touring the area easy. No Verizon cell service available within the Park except on the porch of the office. However, the Park has free WiFi available. All in all a most enjoyable stay.
Have been here before and remains our favorite when in the Bend Oregon area. Although only an overnight stay this time, it always has been for us a quiet area, close to shopping, gasoline, etc., which is always a bonus for us. Everything is clean and well managed, and the hosts are friendly, hospitable, and create an enjoyable stay. This is on our "Definitely Return" List.
Small RV Park on West side of Wilbur, and is a nice place to stay for a few days. The park is gravel sites with lawn areas separating sites. Well kept and maintained, and the owner/managers are very nice and most friendly. We were with a group so didn't do any touring in the area. This park also had a small café and gazebo available for eating on-side with a very nice menu which includes breakfast and supper. No trains but there is a highway along one side. But, virtually no traffic or noise within the RV park.
We have stayed at one other RV park in Bend, but decided to give this place a try, and glad we did. Checking in was very easy, gracious and helpful staff, and easy to negotiate within RV park. The other posters are correct in that the sites are close together, yet there is plenty of room for picnic tables, and chairs. For us it is a good location for fast foods and grocery shopping, shade trees, cable, and lots of room to walk the dog plus a good grassy dog walk area. We stayed in Site 312, small grass patio with good table. Clean restrooms. We would definitely return.
This US Army Corps of Engineers campground is upriver from Ice Harbor Dam near Burbank. This is our second summer being here. It is a well-maintained, well-staffed, and quiet campground. There are several sites which border the Snake River for an evening spent eating supper while watching the sun set over the river and foothills. For those looking for a campground away from railroad tracks & trains, then this may not be for you. However the noise created by 8 trains a day, is minimized by a fair amount of landscaping between campground and RR tracks. The large spaces between RV sites, large number of full-hookup sites plus plenty of space between sites to extend slides and still have plenty of space between units and fire pits/picnic tables area makes this our kind of campground. Many sites have lots of shade which is a premium in the sage brush terrain of eastern Washington. If watching tug boats, recreational water craft, and people having lots of fun is your kind of place, then this is for you also. A big plus is the large marina which provides an opportunity to launch water craft for a trip to Portland, Oregon or Lewiston, Idaho.
We had to be in Pismo Beach for a family event, and this RV park was recommended to us and glad we took their advice. It is located close to Avila Beach which is a great place to see. The washers/dryers were clean, moderately priced, and the restroom/showers were also very clean. Being so close to the beach and having a minimum of asphalt creates areas where sand is tracked in. We chose to be in a small site, but will definitely choose to park in a larger site next time, just for the room to put out more chairs. We enjoyed watching the children play as we walked around the park, and when taking our small dog to the dog area for exercise. This is a convenient, clean, friendly staffed, easily accessible, and dog-friendly park. We did not go the local market nearby, but will next time in the area.
We have stayed before when going to Southern California and like before, this was just a stop-over. Clean, friendly staff, check-in is easy, nice supplies in the office, and all in all a very nice, well maintained RV park.
We arrived after the office closed for the day, so was hard to find, but worth it! It is located by going past the Subway Shop. We enjoyed the cleanliness, quietness, and friendly staff here. If we go through this area again, will stop here for the night or two we are in the area.
This is a clean, easily negotiated into/out of RV park, with owners who take pride in their park. The setting is very nice, and the clean, spacious showers are a very nice addition to an excellent, quiet, clean park which is set off the road. Agree with another reviewer in that: "Big Pines is truly a gem well hidden from passing traffic as the park sits back from the road and is easily passed by without ever knowing its location.” It was a great night’s stay on a non-vacation trip going into California. This RV park is on our “Definite Return and Stay Awhile” list of places.
Rate reflects monthly rate. This is a Franklin County RV Park with friendly and helpful manager on-site, office open morning hours M-F, sites are concrete pads with asphalt interior roads, pull-thru sites are back-to-back sites (as seen on web-site), self-registration when office is closed, and does look like web-site. We have an air card, so can't speak of WiFi,located near stores (Wal-mart,local grocery, as well Lowe's), medical clinics, vet clinics,banking, sports events, etc. Across the street is a playground for children. Campers are friendly and yes, there appears to be several long-term RV'rs here. This is a Franklin County operated RV park with Park host on site. TRAC stands for Trade, Recreation, Agriculture, Convention Center - which means this is a Convention Center surrounded with local softball team's baseball field, as well as local sports fields such as soccer and baseball. Just a note that this area is growing very fast, so quite nights are not as quiet as 3 years ago. This is our 'home base' when we return each year for family events, yearly medical, etc...
Very nice Oregon State campground, easy to maneuver in, and options are great, tenting, RV sites, or yurts. The $20 RV site cost is an off-season price. Clean RV sites, yurts, tenting area,horse camp, as well as showers and restrooms is something the Bullards Beach staff pride themselves on. It is nice to have several volunteers who are knowledgeable about the area as well. The volunteers work hard to keep the campground clean and tidy. Definitely a "must return to" vacation spot.
Easy drive from Bend to Eugene, but even at that we always appreciate an RV park where it is easy to register and the folks are friendly and helpful even to the point of printing out a local map for us to go shopping, and sight seeing. Everything was clean, picked up, and the restrooms were spotless as well as the laundry facilities were clean. We had a pull-through which made it easy for us as we only stayed two nights. As always it is nice to go to a new RV park and find that the place is like its website. The only noises were slight traffic noise plus once or twice heard a train in the far distance. We do not give out 10 Rating generously, but this RV park could have gotten a 12 from us.
This was a very nice, clean, easy to find RV park/resort Quiet surroundings and space between RV sites was awesome. Dog run was very nice and clean. This was a stop for us on our way to Eugene from Idaho and was very easy to check in. Staff even checked TripCheck for us for road conditions along our route. Definitely a place to put on our agenda for next early Fall, only for a longer stay next time. Nice to find a place which looks like their website.
True there are places in this campground which could use some sprucing, including watering the grassy areas, but overall for the price this is a good stopping place. This is our first time in Baker City, so for us this place works. And it is so quiet at night that one cannot help but get a good night's sleep. A plus for us is the fuel station plus the selection of food items in the office.
Clean, quiet, wide interior roads for easy maneuvering, friendly, helpful office staff, clean park, large cement spaces with grassy areas in between, nice landscaping within and surrounding this park. Laundry, workout room & bathrooms are clean with code key entry system. New owners and ongoing upgrades are in process. Good location on Highway 18 and single track railroad crossing a mile north of park so minimum amount of noise. Location is close to Evergreen Air Museum and many wineries. This park goes on our “come back” list. Nightly rate is based on monthly rate.
Good points : Clean, small RV park with a lot going for it. Nice location as is across river from Hood River which is a great little town with lots to see and do to keep busy for a weekend or more. Clean restrooms, entire park is pristine, and nice to hear birds. Very little highway noise. Bad point: Rumble of trains can keep one awake if located in back row which is only about 50 yards from railroad tracks.
Rate shown includes sales & hotel taxes. Nice park on Soap Lake, large trees, fairly level smallish gravel sites, and sufficiently wide, picnic tables, and some grass. We camped with a group who voted to return next year. Clean and tidy thru-out, good signage, and friendly staff. Two clubhouses, plus game room. Definitely a family RV parks although with the Adult Clubhouse there is a kiddos-free area. We would stay here again.
Were in town due to a family member in hospital, staff worked with us as we were on our way to another place. They understood and extended the welcome mat out and were good hostesses in welcoming us, ensuring we had TV cable, etc. Despite the cold freeze the RV park was clean and has two roads into and out of this RV park which is great, looking forward to coming back in warmer weather as the town of Troutdale and surrounding area looks interesting.
We were with a group and don't know if the above rate (including taxes) is a group rate or not. Anyway staff makes everyone feel special and welcomed. There is a group meeting room and the restrooms are kept locked with key available for the asking, also a laundromat in same building as restroom. Although this is not a resort, it was very quiet area with a mini mart and gas station as well as a cafe across Highway 31 from the RV park. Staff lives on the property and are available to answer questions regarding area, fishing, etc. Although campground is a grassy field with assigned sites circled with a gravel road, we had no problems siting our 20 ft. travel trailer and those with motorhomes or 5th wheels had no problems either. There are some side by side sites also. This is a don't miss campground for those wanting a relaxing weekend with fishing, hiking, etc. there for the doing.
Rate reflects monthly rate. This is a Franklin County operated RV park therefore hard to evaluate after only two days. Park host on site, easy late arrival with reservations made by phone several weeks ago with a credit card, pull thrus are really back to back with two rows of back ins, concrete sites, and looks like web-site. We have an air card, so can't speak of Wi-Fi, office open M-F, located near stores, medical, banks, and sports events. Haven't seen any playground, therefore, can't say if it is children friendly although there are families here. For being next to busy sports arenas and fields, so far have experienced quietness which didn't expect - weekend is coming. Campers are friendly and yes, there appears to be several long-term RV'rs here.
Staff was friendly at check in, sites are fairly level, mature shade trees, well maintained grounds, nice landscaping, however spaces are narrow with small grassy areas between sites, our slide is narrow, therefore we didn’t overlap onto our neighbors grass. Utilities are good, there are individual shower/sink/toilet rooms and they were spotless. The laundry was clean and machines are new and worked great. WiFi was OK. If you come from the South, you will need to go to the next intersection North of the office and make a legal u-turn, thus you will be in the correct lane for turning into the Park. We sited, then drove back up the hill to the office to register. Some people complain that the entrance is too steep, which depends on what you are driving or towing. Shopping, restaurants, etc. are within a short drive from the RV park.
Registration was easy, site escort, which again we waited until they left and sited it to our liking, gated entryway only keeps car/trucks out, thought that meant it was secure, but isn't. And Wi-Fi is not consistently good. Other than those items this is a good RV park. Note that county park next door is not dog friendly from May through October, as in no dogs allowed. Sites are shady, our site a bit too shady, and be aware that there are no site park lites at night. So for those who like pitch black plus quietness, this is ideal. Sites are easy to level RV on. And staff is helpful.
We needed a place with no train, plane or traffic noise and that is exactly what we found. Didn't even hear a coyote or any wildlife. Easy to find following their website instructions. The general store/office is well stocked, and staff and owners helpful and friendly. We had reservations, were escorted to our site, help given in setting up, and he even cut branches from a tree so we could pull out our slide. The site was level even though park is set on sloping land in forest with natural waterfalls as well as a private section of Jumpoff Joe Creek. While we only stayed 2 nights, the WiFi signal strength was excellent, and free. There are quarters needed showers, laundry facilities, and doggies are welcome. Give this place a try if you need some peace and quiet. Gave it an 8 due to no TV signal, but not owners fault. If you want a forest setting, then one has to give up some things.
Don't usually review park after one night, but we just have to post our thoughts. After 22 months traveling to East Coast and back to West Coast, this is one of those "will definitely return to" places; no trains, planes, or road construction noises ! One could get used to this in a very short while; just a really nice, clean RV park. Site 34 has at least a 5 ft. wide section of grass between concrete sites There are flower beds, maple & sycamore trees for shade, concrete picnic tables, dog run, continental breakfast in rec room, solar heated pool, and did I say rules for quiet nights are enforced. Staff is friendly and helpful and keeps park clean Located only one exit from Lake Shasta; what else does one need ?
Friendly check in and a nice quiet RV park. We used it for a layover between Pismo Beach and Redding. Overall this park was nice and clean throughout. The WiFi was consistently good. We were not dissapointed in the park after reading the reviews. The kids can keep busy with rental bikes. Has nice restrooms and clean. Easy to find and looks like no problems with exiting as with some parks.
We stayed here for a few days while visiting with friends in the area. We found registration easy, everywhere you look it is clean, staff is nice, and are helpful in helping you find places in the area. Free WiFi. Also due to Central CA Fair, there will be higher rates in the next few days, but it's well worth a very nice site overlooking a winery, and enjoying the marvelous sunsets. We love staying here and look forward to coming here again. Not the first place to charge a fee for dogs. There is a $3 per dog/per day fee, but believe that is the wave of the future as we paid that type of fee on the East Coast this past year. Much nicer than majority of RV parks we have stayed in these past months.
Registration and campground staff are friendly and helpful. The sites are packed gravel, kind of level, and there is grass between them. There are some trees for shade. This is a clean campground. Has a nice fenced pet area, and free TV cable. The fast reliable Wi-Fi is Linksy and can hook up for a fee. Yes, there is construction of a school addition/bldg. We were on opposite side of campground from construction, and not a problem. Long-term camping area is clean, as well as park models, etc. I don't give 10s, but this came as near to a 10 as I have seen for a campground. We were given weekly rate.
Security gate at entrance, then a parking area for while registrating, which was easy due to reservations. Was no escort to our site, but easy to follow the Park Map. Pull-through concrete site was level, hookups easy and atmosphere quiet with lots of palm trees. There is lots to do in this RV park: no real reason to leave if one wants to just use the pool, restaurant, play miniature golf or just relax. 24-hr Security patrol through-out the park and staff is most helpful. First time to Las Vegas and found this RV resort as pictured on the Web, which is not always the case.
Quiet, shady, clean and nice place. The owners are courteous, helpful and have a sense of humor as seen in rules and signs about this RV park, yet serious about rules. Very nice area for pet walk also there are stations with pick-up bags throughout the RV park. We stayed a week, used this as a base to see sights South and North of here. Good experience for first time in Flagstaff area. Definitely will come again for a relaxing vacation if we find ourselves in the area.
In West Gallup, was easy to find as it's on Historic 66. Has a friendly registration clerk, store looks well stocked with souveniers, groceries, and rv supplies. Nice aspect is the BBQ dinner plus ice cream social nightly for those not wanting to cook. Has level, gravel sites, and except for lack of trees, it's a nice place to stay for a few nights.
Directions were right on. Easy registration, escorted to site with lots of pines and juniper trees which gave privacy between campsites, and sites are level and hookups are easy. People were great; first time in Santa Fe and they were willing to help us find things to do, including Rodeo. Stayed a week and wish we could stay longer, as we used it as a base to go to Los Alamos and Pecos. Quiet nights, and yet serviceswere within a reasonable drive away. Will stay again if ever in the area again.
A nice mountainside campground for a stopover on the way to the next stop. Nice layout of park, level sites, quiet with marvelous view of sunsets. Store is well stocked for travelers with gifts, postcards, etc. They had a cookout dinner for campers at a reasonable price, but we did not partake. Although the road between highway and the entrance to park is rough with lots of potholes, so had to slow way down when turning off highway. This is just a "heads up" to others, not the RV park's detractor.
We are new to traveling in Colorado and this is Day 2 at a great little "no frills" RV Park. Nice place with blacktop drive, gravel and concrete sites, hookups are easy, sites a bit close, but the quietest night's sleep we have had during travels. This park has an excellent escort, who is courteous without being overly helpful. The biggest surprise is that one is made to feel like special guests. We had what felt like our own personal concierge, giving out maps and print-outs with information needed to decide what to see and do in the area. A plus for hubby was the free daily newspaper, haven't had that before. Felt like that small town feeling. We were here to visit relatives and if ever in the area again will most definitely stay here again. We never give out 10s.
Enjoyable week-long stay: it was clean, friendly, quiet, and an enjoyable place out in the country. The park owners and staff were very friendly. Very easy park to negotiate both in entering and also in sitting. New cable TV system which is great for those days when we wanted to sit back, watch TV and relax. We were here before, in Dec 2008: enjoyed grass and flowers this time around. Staff is very friendly and the Kafe is great for suppers. Has a very nice, enclosed dog run which our dog enjoyed. If in the area again, definitely will stay here again.
Great park, directions were good, easy check-in, and friendly staff. Even though terraced, sites are level, most are concrete pads, a few gravel sites, and finishing new sites. Utilities easy to hook up to and worked well. Laundry facilities was very nice. Nice base for seeing Oklahoma City tourist attractions. Relatively quiet even though easy on and off highways.
Very nice gated RV park - concrete sites, all hookups at same spot, real nice layout and landscaping, sufficient room between sites for non-crowded feeling, quiet and well-kept. Only downside is both lack of picnic table at each site and speed bumps. Not sure I would like to return in July & August because of lack of trees for shade at sites.
Registration was friendly, rules pointed out, given map to site with directions, level sites, easy to get into, notebook in office with local restaurant menus, friendly park workers, back row sites were nice for dog walking, spacious view of sky, TV cable worked great, nice variety of stations, relatively quiet, and all in all a nice campground for several days. Nightly rates is Escapees discount.
Park was easy to find, on Highway 65 North and has easy access. Had reservations, simply registered and led to site, he helped us get sited, said he was available if there were any problems. Thought their TV cable wasn't good, but the problem was at our end: fixed it and had great reception. We are in the last row next to the tree-filled hill, so have plenty of shade. Can see the traffic above the front row of RV sites, but noise isn't that bad. RV park is dark and quiet at night: there may be an occasional dog barking, but otherwise very quiet. Has on-site laundry, store, and recreational hall. Has on-site management and security, Wi-Fi, level sites are gravel, adequately wide paved roads, nice landscaping including a small man-made waterfall with pond decorated with bear statues, etc. and pretty raised concrete flower beds between sites. Off to the side of the property is an RV repair facility.
Very nice place to stay: previous to this we had been volunteering and were staying in a forested area. Opening the door to a wide spacious meadow and able to see the sun rise was a treat. Friendly staff, showed us where our site was, and asked if we needed any help. He gave us the history to the park and that helped us to see why the park was laid out the way it was. He was out and about for a couple hours and visible outside the following day. I can see it could be a problem if it rained very much, however, was very, very nice, and for me a 9 is almost impossible to achieve, so I rated it very high.
Easy to find, good roads, easy "pre-registration". Late arrival information was there, power, cable with lots of channels, level site. Didn't need to unhook. Metal tables and chairs, and friendly staff in office in the morning when we asked questions. One of few reviews which was right on about how great this park is for an overnight stop. We were sorry we could not stay longer as quiet at night made for a great sleep ! Most definitely will stay here again.
We had a premium sites which was nice as we had rain while here. Clean throughout the park and very clean restrooms which really individual bathrooms (shower, sink & toilets). Laundry is other end of bldg., therefore some variance in volume of shower. Plenty of room to walk around including open fields in tent area. Dog run was good with minimum agility practice jumps, twists, etc. Overall atmosphere of park is friendly, wide roads, good spacing between sites in the premium sites with concrete pads, site lights, table, and propane bar-b-que provided. Plane noise due to Pensacola Naval Base, but otherwise quiet.
This KOA park is very nice, had reservations and registration was quick and pleasant, we called while on the road (Baton Rouge) to see how late office was open and told 7 pm, so no problem coming in at 6 pm. Layout is interesting with large trees, paved interior roads, we had concrete site close to showers, and except for freeway road noise if parked on the perimeter in front, this is a good place to overnight or for a couple of nights. The rate we had included cable TV ($3/night) plus KOA member discount.
Called ahead as we were not sure if we would arrive before the office closed, and were told that is not a problem as staff lives on site and to just call them and they would come over. Good instructions on web-site, arrived before office closed, given information hand-outs, escorted to site, concrete pad, nice layout of hook-ups, 3 miles East to Winn-Dixie (grocery), all in all a good location. Site 88 is on rough interior road, but otherwise interior roads are good. Staff is helpful, and looking forward to a few days of seeing New Orleans using their shuttle and tour reservation system.
Good location for us to visit Tuskegee and far enough off the Interstate to avoid road noise. It was rainy weather when we arrived, and were told to chose an RV site, either one of three. By the next morning it was still wet, but the gravel was easy to walk on. Office staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and easy RV park to get into and out of. All in all a good few-nights' stay RV park.
Helpful staff when we called to let them know we would be coming in late - night registration easy to find and also easy to find our reservations. An orange cone had been put in our site - easier to locate that way. Traffic noise not as bad as had been led to believe even being in front two rows. Park in good condition and good location for us. We only give exceptional parks an 8 or 9 - so an 8 for us is good. No problems with utilities overnight. Friendly staff. Will definitely consider staying here again.
Overnight stop for us: easy in and out from I-75. Friendly and helpful staff. Next morning we needed directions to Jimmy Carter NHS, and staff was very helpful with directions and type of roads which we would be driving on. Hubby said bathroom was not as warm in the early a.m. as he would have liked, but water was hot for shaving. All in all, would definitely return for a longer stay.
Ease of registration was nice after a long drive down 301. Directing to site along with help in deciding which site was best for us was excellent. Even when we decided to extend our visit, the staff was most accommodating and nice. Cement patio is nice as that is not always available at KOAs down the coastline. Some would object to train noise, but for us it was not as bad as some diesel rigs at 5 a.m. as has happened in other places. Satellite dish set up was easy due to open skies available. For us from the West coast areas, we are delighted to see the sandy areas along with historical sites. Would definitely stay here again as the sites are nice and wide. There are activities available such as bingo and waffle breakfasts for all to enjoy.
Very easy registration, wi-fi, easy to maneuver in and out of campground. 35 acre lake made for relaxing on park bench while watching various birds including ducks and egrets along the shore, and quietness was also appreciated. Easy to get on and off I-95 to Savannah, and staff gave very good directions on the free map in the office. Some trees were being taken out while we were there, so ease of getting big rigs into sites, etc. should be easier once that project is completed. Clean facilities, and store was stocked with campers in mind.
Easy access to Kampground, although speed bumps on entry road made for slow driving - knowledgeable staff, easy Registration with reservations, and good set of written directions to points of interest, shopping, etc. Shopping center close by as well as Wal-Mart. Easy to maneuver within the park, site given was large, and level. Showers are separate from restrooms. And 24 hour quietness is a real bonus, staff is available for questions, help, etc. Laundry room has 4 washers & dryers.
Reservations were as we had made with site near restrooms/showers ; staff in office very courteous and knowledgeable ; packet included directions to nearby state parks, beaches, etc. Site was dirt/gravel and wide enough to not feel crowded. Good location from where to go to places we wanted to see. There are trees but not too many, and general condition of the park was very well groomed and kept clean. Garbage cans available throughout the Kampground.
Easy registration with Reservations, and were allowed to change sites and picked out an open area space. Easy to maneuver into site, and hookups were convenient as well as the area being a quiet area although may get noisy this weekend. Lots of handouts including information sheet about the area around here including directions to Yorktown, Jamestown, and the other historic sites in the area as well as restaurants, medical help, etc. Never having been in this area before, this information was invaluable. All in all one of the nicer KOAs we have stayed in this past year. Quiet nights which gives us a good night's sleep. Would definitely stay here again.
Easy registration with reservations. Nice layout for a campground, staff most helpful, and our site was easy to maneuver into, hookups easily accessible, great walking areas, quiet without golf carts going up and down all day. Central area for Lancaster County, Harrisburg, and Hershey Chocolate tours. Quaint little town of Elizabeth was visited and enjoyed. We would definitely return to this campground if in the East Coast area again.
Easy registration with no escort to site, however the staff is friendly and will help if you need help, just ask. Excellent service of a dog walker while we took bus tour of NY City which we boarded at the Park. We were put in a shady spot, but if you want a sunny, satellite friendly site: best ask when making reservations. We enjoyed ourselves in this friendly, quiet (no railroads or airports or busy highway noise to interrupt sleep), easy to pull in or pull out of sites park. Plenty of trails or inner roads to walk. Large dog park surrounded by an open field. Clean showers are separate from restrooms which is nice. Also each site has a separate garbage can, so no trekking across the campground for a dumpster. And I do not give 10s to any park.
Easy registration, security gate is nice with key card - although site given was not level - possibly overnight or few nights sites - otherwise a very nice RV park. Staff is most helpful and friendly, good cable, water pressure good, and traffic noise is minimal or non-existent.
Appreciated being in a country setting where the quietness allowed us to rest and relax, and staff was helpful in answering questions about tourist areas. Registration was easy, the staff friendly, facilities were clean, and we would definitely return if in the area again.
Nice campground in southern Maine with friendly staff, efficient and knowlegable registration staff, shaded sites, free newspaper, plenty of activities for children. Plus the Merry Moose, from where pizzas, breakfast waffles, pancakes, and desserts can be ordered and either eaten at the canopied area or delivered to your site. Location of campground is convenient to all the places one would like to see in and about the area. Quiet in the back area, front area gets traffic noise, but nights are quiet and peaceful. Will definitely stay here if in the area again.
Nice clean little campground. Easy access to and from the highway, yet far enough away to be quiet. Watch out for that large "speed bump" at the entry way which is otherwise long and smooth. Cable TV needs some work to improve picture quality. Wi-Fi is 'Hotspots' and we enjoyed a good connection. Didn't check out the pool or playground...next time!
Toss up between an 8 or 9 - it is grassy area sites, nice areas to walk down to the river, fishing appears to be good (if number of people out fly fishing is indicative of fish), workers are helpful, quiet and safe atmosphere, pool is nice for families, it is just us two seniors and we love it here amongst friendly neighbors. First time in New Hampshire so spending more time touring than actually in park.
Front office staff is not as informative as I would like to see when coming in with reservations. I asked about Wi-Fi and was told simply that only 15 minutes each hour was available. After siting and logging onto Wi-Fi, we discovered that we could pay a weekly fee for additional time. Which meant another trip to the front office. We were sited at the rear due to the 7-lb dog (non-negotiable). To review a campground for their grounds is not fair with as much rain as there has been in the area, suffice to say that the sites are grass/gravel. Need a mat outside door to defray mud from coming into units. We prefer to be near the front of parks for laundry, etc.
Great place. Very cheerful and helpful office staff, plus assistance to site, all make for a most welcome feeling upon registering. Interior roads are smooth, sites are long, and see several big rigs sited here. Honey wagon available upon request, so no sewer hookup is not a negative to staying several days in campground. Gate closure is 11 pm to 7 am although there is parking area for toad or tow vehicle outside gates which is still inside park perimeter. We liked the quiet time 11 pm until 8 am rule, made for no loud noises either caused by kiddos or loud vehicle noise waking us up at 6 am or before. Atmosphere in campground made for a friendly neighborhood atmosphere. Nice pool, water play area, and playground areas, plus very nice picnic tables, all make for a great campground.
Initially stayed here due to having family nearby; however we would recommend this campground for those who wish to get out in the country for peace and quiet. Staff was courteous and helpful while we were there. Yes, there are friendly long-term campers, both friendly and helpful - we returned to camp one night to see our awning taken down as the neighbors were concerned about the wind blowing too hard while we were gone. Interior roads are a bit rough in back of the pool area. Mini-golf, large areas to play games, nice pool, playground make for a great family campground. Not sure I would take a motorhome into this campground.
We came in the middle of June and the park wasn't really geared up for weekends and vacations until a week later. Brand new picnic tables, more wifi tower locations, great staff, and a great park, coupled with a key entry rv sites area. Sparkling clean restrooms, showers, and general facilities. The down side is the card key has a deposit charge and the WiFi charge is a little high, however, connection was good. This was one of the only non-membership rv parks we have used on this trip across the U.S., so may be a little biased on the additional charges. Overall we would definitely return to this rv park the next time we come this way.
Very nice park - Great place, staff, cafe had excellent food and service, WiFi excellent in the Cafe computer desk area, albeit we experienced spotty reception at our site. Would stay longer next time we have an opportunity to travel through this area.
Very nice KOA park - well-kept sites, several cabins, easy in and out of park and sites, clean, helpful staff, nice gift shop. Only stayed two days, wish we could have stayed longer here. Will recommend this park and if opportunity arises, will stay again.
Not sure what the actual rate was - with KOA discount. We stayed a week, we were put back in the back row under a row of trees which when it rained was muddy. Obviously one has to asked specifically for a site near the lake and not off the round-about under the trees if one has satellite or datastorm. If we stay again, will definitely ask not to be put there again! I think they put us where those staying a week or more are sited. Not good! Other than that - the staff was nice.
Pulled in after negotiating instructions to get here - will be more careful next time as to how far off the Interstate we get. Although I will have to add that the staff called our cell phone when we were about an hour away to ask if we were able to follow the instructions or if we needed help. That was great for a couple from the West Coast. Not sure how long we will be here due to some mechanical problems. Staff was most pleasant and did escort us to our site as well as helped us get set up.
Full hookup/pull-through site is $46 plus $1.50 for a daily rate. We have a KOA Value Kard membership, so with discount plus tax = 45.42. We have a lovely pull-through site near the showers, pavilion, and office which we asked for when making the reservations. Looking back though it would have been nice to have had a little privacy with a back-in site. If we come back, we will know what the park layout is and can ask for that. The staff did an excellent job in giving us a site per our requests. Pancake breakfast is nice; you can add sausages, and coffee to rate for pancakes and have a nice breakfast. Despite the rain, the grounds are nice today. Some sites are wider than others, and ours was a nice size for the two of us. We are staying 5 nights.
We had a deluxe full hookup - came with a wooden-lawn swing as well as the fire pit and lovely nice metal(mesh) picnic table. Lovely, staff is helpful, and the dog park is great. Laundry facilities were clean and real nice. Shuttle into town for the bus tour with guide was good and gave us a chance to sit back and let them do the driving. We stayed 3 nights, and wish we could have stayed longer. I would give it a 9.5 as I don't give out 10s.
Nice WIDE sites, pleanty of room for slides .. Friendly staff in Registration/Camp Store. Park has no sewer hookups, but landscaping, asphalt sites, asphalt roads, and the ease of getting in and out makes one glad to be here. We arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm, and so the grassy area around our site was wet. Mature trees, and lots of places for walks. We are in the non-premium sites section which are very nice. We have 30 amp plus water and water pressure is good.
Rate was Club rate. Overal a Nice Campground - nice to walk around park, lots of gravel for rain water run-off even with all the thunderstorms. Very friendly, helpful owner/manager. We liked the wider spacing between the sites than we had had at other campgrounds previous to coming in here. Close to the Mammoth Cave NPS where we were going. Will definitely return should we come to the area again.
Friendly staff and most helpful. We went to assigned site, but due to recent rains it was muddy, found a site we liked and were told we could move into that one. Grass and gravel sites were fairly level, but since this was an overnighter, we just pulled in, and hooked up. Friendly neighbors and good asphalt inner roads.
Spent three nights ($101 KOA membership), and loved every hour we were there. The weather was rainy, but with the frogs and hoot owls at night and the birds and ducks daytime it was very relaxing. The children in the park were courteous and friendly. Definitely will return.
Great place - hard to believe we are in a city with the oak trees all around and the wide, wide sites in comparison to where we have sited before. And the staff is very friendly and patiently works with rv'ers in answering questions. This park is large enough to get a long walk in and not even leave the park. The laundry is only open during office hours which is both good and bad. The laundry and all facilities are very clean, and the Christmas decorations are cheerful for those away from home for Christmas.
This place was nicer than we had heard from other campers. The freeway noise wasn't all that bad. Clean, and easy to negotiate the roads around the park. There was a friendly staff. We spent a lot of time touring Albuquerqueand did not spend that much time in the park itself.
Fairly easy negotiating this park both in entry and in siting. Not all the sewer hookups are at the same height, so have to be mindful of this when siting. Electricity, water, etc. were working just fine. Because of construction on I-20 the exit to this park is not well-defined by the detour signs, and the road into the park is a one-way street. Might be a good idea to call park first to find the correct exit number to this park. The park is quiet and there is no RR noise at all. A good place to spend a few days.
Enjoyable stay - rate included tax and was for a weekly rate of $203 - enjoyable place out in the country. We enjoyed watching the helicopters flying in and out of the airport across the way. The park owners were very friendly and the park was quiet. A very nice enclosed dog run which our dog enjoyed very much. The dog had not seen jack rabbits before so all 8 lbs of her wasn't sure about them, so enjoyed the fence between her and them in the dog run. Very easy park to negotiate both in entering and also in siting.
A very enjoyable 12-day stay, and they were very friendly and helpful to us as we had not been in this area previously and so needed some help in finding services such as dry cleaners, etc. The good part was that we were able to receive pkgs and mail thru the office. Will stay again when we are in the area. The access road to the sites plus the sites were very easy to negotiate with towing a travel trailer. Comparing here from previous places we have stayed this park was quiet and location of park was good.
Formerly a drive-in (movies), and sitting in our car watching RV was great .. made for a memory. Sutherlin is so small it only has one grocery store (had to ask for directions), has minimum business district, however, Roseburg isn't that far away for a great selection of stores.
We had to pull out early due to an impending snow storm, else we would have stayed a week. We liked the atmosphere (even in November), and would definitely stay here again. We had relatives in the area and also had reservations for the Shasta Sunset Dinner Train. Great small town atmosphere and close to lots to do in the area.
I give this an 8 due to the fact that the WiFi wasn't working when we stayed there until the last day. We stayed 2 nights, and by the second day there was a number of people in the office complaining. That afternoon it was restored. In the meantime we used another available WiFi which was available. Overall it was a good place to stay a coupla days in order to wash clothes, and rest. It was extremely quiet, no road noise or any other disturbing noises.
Many upgrades in the past few months including 5 mph speed signs for safety, road striping, concrete strips repaired/replaced, good security lighting, and clubhouse open until 8 pm daily. The family aspect of this park makes for a "neighborhood" atmosphere whereby people look out for one another. Staff are friendly and helpful, including assisting guests with minor problems. Less than 2 miles from a shopping mall including grocery store, Wal-Mart, restaurants, fast foods, etc. RV sales/service center just up the street. A clean and safe RV park.
We actually stayed a week, therefore received the weekly reate of $165 plus tax. We were visiting relation in Butte and found this place more to our liking. We were afforded all the friendliness and courteousness we expected from reading previous posts. The park was well maintained and clean.
Fantastic weekend. We are in an rv park now, but last weekend was great to get out in the forest and away from the freeways, wow! The camp hosts were great, friendly, helpful, and courteous. What struck me was the size of the sites and the large spacing between sights. We could sit at our site and talk without overhearing the neighbors conversations. We were with a group and there was plenty of space for the more than dozen of us to bring out portable tables and have a potluck supper. Take your mosquito repellent and/or candles to ward off the flying critters. But that is the price of being next to a fantastic river. AND a great playground for the kiddos.
Park has been upgraded and now has asphalt perimeter roads which helps keep the dirt down. Also has been given the distinction of being a FWS Wildlife Backyard Sanctuary. For birdwatchers it is great! There are many, many different birds attracted by the feeders and ponds. In the laundry is a unisex shower room and a unisex bathroom, so one can shower while their laundry is running. Because there is only one shower in each of the main restrooms, it is nice to have an option of using this other shower. Also tents are allowed within the RV parking area when there is an RV to be parked also. The store has VHS tapes and DVDs for rent. Just let the staff know how they can help you and you will be greeted with a smile.
I am giving this park an eight due to change in management . It would get a nine if it wasn't for the traffic noise. We stayed 3+ months due to an off-site job, therefore we were able to "get used" to the vehicle noise both in front from freeway and in rear from housing development. Although a major shopping area less than 2 miles away, there is also the freeway and housing development within that same mileage. The park staff is very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is one of "neighbors" and in the clubhouse are Wednesday evening suppers and Saturday morning breakfasts for a nominal fee which gives everyone a chance to meet everyone in the park. There is plenty of hot water for showers, and the indoor pool is both adult and kid friendly. The hot tub is great for those sore muscles. Just up the street within an easy walk is an RV dealer with a parts/rv supplies store, and they came into the park one afternoon to do the dometic recalls for those who had previously signed up for the recall work. The RV storage area plus the storage facility with large and small units are bonuses. For those of us who call the TriCities home, this gives us a home base plus a storage unit.
When visiting Hood River, Oregon, we always stay here using the toll bridge over the Columbia to take our tow vehicle and tt over, then go back to town for sight seeing. This is a nice park in which to stay as it allows plenty of places to walk near the Columbia River and also has a mini-mart just down the street.
We stayed two nights for $46.16 (with tax), so not sure how much per night. This is the second year we have stayed here in April with a group, and the group will continue coming here as we always have a great time. This year also in the park were the group who does cast iron cooking where we could wander through and see how to cook in cast iron pots/pans. The club house is the draw for the group we come with along with the great husband/wife owners who are so very friendly. Also you never have to worry about whether your site, the clubhouse, or the restrooms are clean, as they are spotless.
The spot we were given on the 3rd tier down was almost impossible to get into or out of due to the narrow roads within the park. The park is on a hill and has tiers of parking, so if one can hike up and down hills, there is no problem walking the dog; and yes, there are way too many permanents there, but that is probably due to the fact that it is an adult only park. On our last day there, I finally found the women's restroom (in the laundry room), but there are no signs on the road indicating where things are. There needs to be research on where shopping can be done before planning to stay here. We used the weekly rate which is nice ($165) in Sept. 2005.
