Good location, but no toilets or showers. Dried plants and dirt are easily tracked into rig. We felt it was not worth the savings! Next time we'll stop elsewhere.

Rate reflects monthly rate; there were very few vacancies during our month stay here: reservations recommended. Pros: well maintained RV park; attentive management (they adjusted sprinklers to reduce the impact on our coach); large pull through sites; monthly rate is very good, daily rate is about average. Cons: for monthly residents, the back-in sites are wide enough, but barely long enough for a 42' coach; hookups on some sites are on the passenger side, so bring plenty of hose; cats allowed to roam free in park; lots of children with permanent residents, sometimes unsupervised; we were very disappointed that the WiFi signal was never strong enough for us to connect. The manager suggested we purchase an antenna to boost the signal. We suggested he place additional antennas around the park to allow us to use the "free" WiFi. We activated a broadband card in order to have internet access. Agreed with previous reviewer: we'll look elsewhere next time too. The permanent residents barely have enough room on their sites for all their "toys," and the park felt very crowded near our site. While in the area, take a tour of Hanford Reach, use the many walking paths along the rivers, and enjoy the many restaurants in this beautiful place.

Pros: Park is truly Big Rig friendly. Has level sites, large paved streets, some shade, but not enough to interfere with satellite reception. Has a strong WiFi signal; reliable utilities; 2 showers, 2 toilets in each restroom, and a clean laundry with a small book exchange. RV Park had very few vacancies during our 17 day stay. Cons: There are no amenities for kids, and several permanent residents, but their sites were very clean and neat. We had to go up Hwy 12 a few miles to access the Yakima Greenway, a lovely 10 mile walking/biking trail. This is a small park, so reservations are generally needed. There is highway noise at night, but we got used to it! We will return here again.

Pros: friendly staff; big rig sites; quiet; they allow mobile RV service techs (Country Boys RV is great!) and cleaners (Mobile Mike's is great!) on site, Wi-Fi works great, Cons: Slow to clean restrooms, no privacy in showers. Because this park met our needs so well, we will return. Price indicated is monthly rate.

Spacious pull through's, although the utilities are at the back of the space. Satellite friendly, good VZW signal, and the best thing about this park is that it's somehow sheltered from freeway and railroad noise, yet fairly close to Portland. We'll stay here again.

$32 per night reflects weekly rate. We loved the location, right next to the Snake River, and 16 miles of walking/biking trail. The management gave us a list of fantastic drives to take in this area. The continental breakfast in the office was consistent and it's nice to get coffee! It was also great to have a morning paper delivered to our door, every day except Sunday. The only area we could criticize would be that some parking areas are awfully tight for big rigs, especially when other customers park outside their own spaces

Very friendly staff. Very pretty park, and the scenery on I-90 is fantastic. We were escorted to a long, pull through site, which was level in the middle. We were assured our site was "satellite friendly", but it was not. There are lots of shade trees all over the park. Local TV channels are generally not available. There was quite a lot of freeway noise. Still, the location is great, and it is family friendly.

The owners have done their best to provide everything we look for in an RV Park: spacious sites, clean restrooms, level sites, clean well placed utilities, lovely office and gift shop, discounts for PA and Good Sam, and a friendly attitude. We'll plan on a longer stay next time because this is an excellent base location for visits to many interesting places: the Space Museum, Cloudcroft, the Very Large Array, the winery in Deming, to name a few. Great Park!

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Restrooms and showers were not available - owner locks them effective May 1, but the laundry is still available. Sites were OK - we noticed freeway and train noise. We saved a few bucks here, but promptly spent the savings at the 24 hour Wal-Mart!

This park is easily accessed from I-10. The sites are long, and fairly level. The bathrooms were locked, but the manager gave us the key. This was fine with us because everything stays really clean that way. Our price is with Passport America, which seemed about right since the sites and access roads are not paved. We would stay here again. We are in a big rig motorhome, with a tow, and did not have to unhook.

We appreciated the quiet of this park for one night. The bathrooms were clean, but were toilets only, no showers. Also, cash or checks only, no credit cards. We would stay here again.

Although the roads are all paved, RV sites are covered with several inches of light weight lava rock, which is a very poor base for a heavy RV. The sites are all back in, and very tight, and leveling is difficult in a few of the sites. Does anyone else get tired of RV parks claiming "Big Rig Sites" when they're really not? On the plus side, staff and other residents were all real friendly, and the park is very clean. Lots of activities also!

This is a very well managed RV Park. The sites are long, wide, and level, and all utilities worked. There are 6 individual shower rooms, which are complete bathrooms, and they're kept very clean, and in working order. The store is well stocked, and the staff are helpful and friendly. The cellular signal is good, but not Verizon, so we could not use our broadband card on high speed. The park contracts with a WIFI service at $3.95 daily, (much less for longer stays.) We will stay here longer next trip through.

The folks at check-in were very friendly & accommodating. We were assigned a back in site, which worked out fine. There are not very many pull throughs. The grounds are very well kept - most days we saw and heard mowers, blowers, and trimmers. Most sites do not have their own table, but we could have used one nearby. The lake was lovely, but dirty from all the geese and ducks. Although the rules clearly state dogs must be on a leash no longer then 6', this rule was not enforced. We enjoyed Saddle West in town for the buffet - Terrible's was mediocre. We would come again, at least for the 3 days allowed on our Passport card. (888) 558-5253

Owners on site were very friendly and helpful. Cash or check only - no credit cards accepted. Most sites have too many trees to allow use of Dome Satellite TV. Some spaces may be tight, and there are some very big rocks to avoid. This was OK for an overnight, but next time we'll stay in Yreka because big rig access within the park was easier, and we can use a credit card. The restrooms were very clean, but could be updated.

Price for "interior" site reflects weekly rate. We appreciated the free newspaper and coffee (or tea) every morning, plus there's a great book exchange as well. We also wish there were more showers and stools for this many RV sites. The staff were friendly, and they kept busy cleaning up after the many trees in the park. Most sites are unable to receive satellite via a dome on top, but you can request a more open site, and they'll accommodate you if one's available. Cable is available at every site. Wi-Fi was not reliable at our site, and a sign at check-in states that it's not guaranteed.

Excellent "big rig" park. We used the well organized library, and appreciated the coffee in the rec room. Picnic tables at the campsite would have been a plus, but overall this is one of the nicest parks we've used. We'd also recommend "Mobile Solutions" to wash your rig - these folks came on a Sunday, were very considerate of the neighbors, and did a thorough washing on both our motorhome and our tow vehicle, for a reasonable price. We'll definitely plan our next I84 trip with this nice RV Park in mind.

Our rate reflects the weekly rate of $110. We really appreciated this park. The sites were long and level, and most were shaded, but the owners made sure we had a space allowing a clear view of the southern sky for our TV Dome. This place was really quiet, and we were able to walk daily, either into Billingly Creek State Park, or within the town of Hagerman. All facilities were very well maintained. We'll return!

This is a "new" RV Park at 1270 W A Street - it's actually accessed off US Highway 85 on the south end of town, just west of Interstate futures. We stayed here a month ($350) because we have lots of friends in the area. It's very inexpensive but with no amenities. You need to call ahead and the manager will meet you at the site, and turn on power to your site. They're not yet set up for credit cards. There are no listings for RV Parks in Torrington, but you could also stay at Goshen Country Fairgrounds, in addition to this RV Park. All hookups worked fine. Be warned there are train tracks 3 blocks away, with heavy coal train traffic. We will stay here again because the sites were large, and the managers were very responsive when we needed anything. The RV park is very close to two nice grocery stores, and it's a wonderful town to walk around and shop. Friendly folks!

We reserved our big rig pull through site several months in advance for the maximum allowable time of 14 days. We can return again after 30 days, space permitting. As the rangers explained to us, this prevents people from "moving in" to the state park. We loved the park, the spacious sites, full utilities which all worked, and the clean restrooms and laundry room. Although they have Wifi, our signal was too weak, and we ended up taking the plunge and buying a Verizon broadband card. It worked great. This park is full every weekend all summer, but Sunday through Thursdays we saw lots of vacancies. We will be sure to book early again next year - access to E470 made it easy for us to get around the city with minimal hassles. We especially appreciated paved roads and paved RV spaces because it kept us much cleaner than in a gravel RV park. We were in loop D, and enjoyed watching the remote control airplanes flying nearby.

This is a lovely, small campground, with plenty of room for a big rig. We enjoyed the quiet nights, and the consistent wifi. It was very windy during our stay. We gave a less than perfect rating because there is little to do in the area, and we drove to either Limon or Burlington for fresh meat and produce. Still, this campground has a lot to offer for the price.

Long level pull thru sites, and the Wifi was excellent. Ample facilities in the restrooms, and they were spotless. The store is very well stocked, and the prices are reasonable. It was surprisingly quiet, even though I-70 is very close. The nearby Colonial Steakhouse was very good. We will definitely come back here.

We had a back in site with shared utilities on grass. Other sites on gravel were shorter and not as level, though more spacious. We were very pleased with the quiet park, and our space was protected from seasonal strong winds by lots of trees. The Wi-Fi signal was very good. We enjoyed the book exchange in the office, and saw several others fishing the various ponds in the resort. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. We would return here again while visiting family in Hutchinson and Wichita. It was great to be away from highway noise.

The park was perfect for an overnight stay. We appreciated not having to unhook the tow vehicle. A code is needed to access the restrooms and Wifi. You have to pay the fee before you get the codes on the receipt, so if you arrive before 5 pm, these services are not available until later. Also, we were unable to access the internet the next morning. While we were there the wind was so blustery we had to take great care with doors and awning over slides.

Very nice park for our large motorhome. Wifi reception was very good ($3.95/day extra). Although the prices seemed a bit high, we decided access to Ruidoso, and Ruidoso Downs justified the higher prices. The sites were spacious.

Very nice RV Park, and we agree with other reviews of indifference among the staff. The wifi cost us $32/month, with 94% reliability. We discovered our one month rental for August (which increased from $900 to $1450 in 6 months) was only for 30 days, even though August has 31 days. After much argument, management agreed to make an exception for us, and allow us to remain all 31 nights, without further payment, and this was appreciated. We were unable to find the definition of a month equal to 30 days in the literature. This is the policy of the home owners association, as is the policy of charging for wifi. We got really spoiled with coffee every morning, and a newspaper delivered to our door. The grounds are very well kept, and the staff did pick up after those few dog owners who manage to sneak away without cleaning up after Rover! Our motorhome fit fine, but we had to be cautious when parking the tow vehicle - the space was tight. We were in the upper part of the park, and noticed those in the cheaper spaces, closes to Hwy 101, endured lots more highway noise, and the spaces were also shorter. Also, although the resort claims a 35' length minimum, there were several days we noticed units under this limit. During our stay there were typically lots of vacant spaces. Great places in Newport to eat include Kam Meng, a nearby Chinese Restaurant, and the Lighthouse restaurant South of the bridge for excellent fresh fish and crab.

Although pull through sites are available, they' re not as level as the paved, back in sites. However, the back in sites are not "big rig" sites if your motor home is over 40', towing a 20' vehicle. Also, the paved area is about 10' wide,and with all the rain, it was real hard to keep from tracking wet grass into the rig. The owners and staff were friendly, and willing to reset the WiFi several times daily. It was routinely unavailable when the office was closed, i.e., after 9pm and before 9am, we had no Internet hookup. The large grassy areas are well maintained. Each site also has a picnic table, and a fire ring. The RV park is ideal for spending time outdoors, weather permitting. Access to 101 is excellent, but the RV Park is far enough south of Seaside to reduce traffic. We would stay here again, knowing that eventually the WiFi situation will improve.

The nightly rate we paid was based on staying a week. This is a very well cared for RV Park. Close to Highway 101. Surprisingly, it was quiet. We appreciated the lovely landscaping, all the local travel information provided by the office, and enforcement of rules pertaining to pets in the RV park. The Wifi was fast, and reliable. We would highly recommend this park, and will stay here again.

We can't understand how this RV park got such a good TL rating - 7.5/7/7.5. All spaces are very tight, and certainly not for Big Rigs. The WiFi is not reliable. The restrooms, showers, and laundry are poorly maintained. When phone inquiries are made, the park is misrepresented. There are enough other good RV parks in the area that it's hard to understand why anyone would select this even for an overnight stop.

This was a very well kept RV Park. Hookups are at the back end of the pull through sites, so our motorhome had to be parked at the very back of the site. However, in this position, trees blocked the satellite dome on the roof, so we ended up buying more sewer hose (we used 30') and pulling as far forward as the site would allow. It would have been better for our newer motor home to have hookups in the middle of the site. Also, sometimes the WiFi worked fine, and other times it didn't work at all. We stayed for a week, and this is reflected in the lower nightly rate. We also appreciated the free newspaper, most mornings.

Restrooms were large, and very clean. Staff was helpful and friendly, and Wifi was OK, most of the time. This park had the largest sites we could find near the South-Southeast Portland area, and these sights are still really tight. Most of the parks we checked out were older, and just not made for our 42' motorhome, and tow vehicle. Still, the park was quiet, and access to I5 is very good.

RV Park is as represented - staff were very friendly and helpful. Quite a bit of road noise from I5, which is the trade off for easy access. Lots of big rigs here because it's so close to Monaco, Country Coach, and Marathon. Cummins Care Center is close also - and they managed to work us in without an appointment, providing excellent service. We would stay here again while in this area.

Brand new park with easy access (and some noise) from I-5. The owners are working hard to make this an excellent RV Park. This was our base for a visit to the coast, as well as visits through the coastal range and east to the Lava beds. A fine place to call home for a few days. Wifi worked great, and the RV Park overlooks the valley on the West - lovely. So nice to have true "big rig" access, and level sights!

This park was accurately represented. The staff were friendly and helpful - especially since we left our surge protector on the electric post! They packaged it and shipped it to us right away, and that was much appreciated. Also, it was lovely to step outside and gaze at magnificent Mt Whitney.
