It's OK ...just OK. It's called "Bandon By The Sea" but it's 2 or 3 miles away from the coast. Not really anywhere near the "Sea", "ocean", or water of any kind. The Wi-Fi was TengoInternet, so you already know how bad that is. The cable was good and the sites were of decent size. Laundry nice and the staff very friendly. We really like the area a lot but we'd prefer to stay "by the sea".
The rate was for the weekly rate. The utilities, cable, and Wi-Fi are all excellent. The restrooms, showers and laundry were all modern and clean, $1 for wash and dry. The sites are very nice and pretty good size, The all are asphalt with shrubs and small trees in between. Very good layout and a great view of the water and the beautiful bridge. Busy here during the summer so make reservations far in advance for that time. Other than that doesn't seem very busy. It's our second time here in the last 4 years. We really like the town of Newport and the surrounding area is beautiful.
Very nice, well manicured park. Wi-Fi was so-so. They have a hot tub. No kiddy playground or anything that would make it family friendly. They only have a few pull-throughs; the rest are all back-ins. The sites are only big enough for a motorhome and toad. Not big enough for a trailer or 5er and tow rig. You end up parking under your awning; they don't really have extra parking. And you can park on your grass strip. And they are pretty pricey for what you actually get. The ocean and beach are across a very busy Highway 101 and down a 100 ft embankment. You end up having to cross this very busy highway then walk about 2 blocks then go down 100 steps to get to the beach area. We probably will not stay in this park again.
This is a really great RV park. I wish we could have stayed longer. Really nice pull-throughs, all paved with grass in between each unit and some room too. VERY reasonably priced. The casino is nice too with a 6 movie theater and really good buffet. They have a shuttle service to bring you to and from the casino back and forth to the RV park. It's all of about a half mile away. We would love to go back here and stay a month. great views of Cabbage mountain.
I'm pretty tired of these KOA parks, You think they'll be OK. Some of them are, but a lot of them really suck. You make a reservation and then your stuck. They charge you if you cancel and if you get there and don't like the set up they charge you for the night anyways. This KOA has back to back and front to front pull-through sites. So when you walk out of your rig your looking right at some other campers about 8' away and when you put your slides out then your only about a foot away from the rig on the other side of you.
This park is only average at best. It's an old KOA with a pool and such but no hot tub, and the Internet only works if your right next to the office. The rate for overnight is way too high for what you are getting. Yes, they have showers and laundry. Just not very impressed for a park that thinks they should get $43 for parking overnight. Also the old lady at the counter talked on and on with the folks in front of me for over 20 minutes while I waited about where they're going next and when they're next doctors appointment would be, all while I stand there waiting. Next time I'll boondock at the Wal-Mart; it's only a mile away.
A very nice and clean park, clean pool and restrooms, and laundry area. All pull-through sites. The long term sites are a bit larger than the week-or-less site, but all are very nice. Very friendly and helpful crew and close to just about everything in the area. We stayed there for a week and will come back anytime in the area again.
This is a truly nice campground. We stay in many and we will come back to this one when we travel through the area again. We live full-time in our 5th wheel, so we really appreciate a nice spot when we find it. Very friendly staff, clean park, pool, and restrooms. Very nice little store as well.
This place is pretty run down, however the people are friendly. We laughed so hard my wife nearly peed her pants when we saw " THE LAKE ". They have paddle boats and stuff to rent. There is not a drop of water in the lake, NOT A DROP...
The lake they mention is merely a dug pond, not that it's bad or anything. The camp is nice and very accommodating for a over night stop, or longer. We only stayed 1 night here on our way to Florida. They will make you a pizza and deliver it to your rig. This is a typical KOA, a little hilly but not a problem for our 37' 5er.
Very nice RV park, They even have nightly entertainment. A couple different country acts. A little high priced. This is the weekly rate. Very good location - 2 miles from Opryland. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a nice campground, friendly staff, very accommodating. They have a little grill/restaurant on the property. They want you to make reservations and pay for your entire stay upfront.....We payed the monthly rate and stayed 1 month. They have a laundry with 2 washers and 2 dryers. They have some nice sites here, however they have some sites on the water that are only about 15 feet wide. If we came back here we would ask for site 46. It's not on the water, but is much larger with some shade trees. The little town is a very quaint little fishing village with several decent restaurants, and it's only 1.3 miles away. You can ride your bikes or even walk if you'd care to. They have a liquor store and market, however, to do bigger shopping you have to go 25 miles into Chiefton. The place isn't actually on the ocean or Gulf of Mexico, it's on a bay so there's not a beach or any waves. There is a beautiful sunset view.
This is a very nice park, very friendly staff and helpers. A lot of nice people here for the winter. Dog parks (they do have a couple) are very nice. The pool is nice and large and 90 degrees. The two large hot tubes are 97 degrees and 104 degrees. the entire grounds are always nice, clean, tidy and spotless. They have many activities to participate in if you chose to. Sites all have nice tall hedges between them and are about 50' long x 35' wide gravel site with concrete parking spot for truck or toad. Streets are blacktop. Beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The Wi-Fi works good from anywhere in the park and they have cable included that has about 75 channels. The rate is based on monthly stay as we will be here for 2 months, many of the people here stay 5 or 6 months. WE WILL BE BACK.
THIS IS THE WORST PARK WE HAVE EVER BEEN IN, EVER. We do this Full-time so we're in a lot of parks. The so called Wi-Fi is non-existent. The rest rooms are terrible. The so called stream is just some stagnant water in a drainage ditch. This park is surrounded by a terrible, run down old mobile home park full off junky places and obnoxious people, playing their loud music at all hours. This is a very run down area. DO NOT GO TO THE PARK. YOU WILL REGRET IT.
One of the nicest RV parks we've stayed in. The restrooms are very modern and clean. Pool was clean and nice, they have a beautiful rec. room, very nice staff. A kind of different experience, your actually in a real orange grove. it's pretty cool. The Wi-Fi really works great everywhere in the park, they have Wi-Fi boosters all over the park so no matter which site your in you get a good signal. Cable TV was very nice as well. We will stay here as often as we are through this area and will recommend to all our friends.
Thee rate is based on a week's stay. As other reviews have stated, the only thing this park has going for it is the fact that it's only 5 miles from Yosemite. You can get no phone or Wi-Fi while there; the high mountains around you is why. They do have TV hook up for a few limited channels. The restrooms and showers are the worst. They do not have any real place to walk your dogs or for kids to play. We would never stay here again.
Our rate was based on staying a week. We were escorted to a beautiful site on the side away from the highway, there is almost no traffic noise and you can hear none from inside your rig. THIS IS A TRUE RESORT. Beautiful grounds, blacktop roads, concrete pads nice grass areas in between and well spaced. Very well laid out park, easy to get in and out of in the largest of rigs. The Recreation area includes a basketball court, putting green, the biggest swimming pool we have seen in ANY RV park, an in ground hot tube at least 15' across, the pool area also has a gas outside fire-pit which is on every evening. The rec room which is very large, has 3 big screen TV's and a gas fireplace which also opens to the pool area. Park has very nice and clean restrooms, showers and laundry room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Also got about 70 TV channels and great working Wi-Fi. YES: we will recommend this park and stay here again.
This is really an excellent park, right next to the river, very beautiful. Park hosts are great, very helpful. Wi-Fi and cable are outstanding. restrooms and laundry are very nice, clean, and updated. The nightly rate is based on our weekly rate as we stayed for 2 weeks. We would definitely highly recommend this park. And we will be back again. This is one of the nicest parks we've stayed in all year. We full-time.
This is a very nice campground, however they had said big rig were not a problem so we picked a site that was one of the largest. The park layout is OK, however the sites are a straight back in, not on a slant, so yes it was difficult to get the 40' 5er into the spot, but we did it. The cell phone reception is very poor. We had to go down to the beach in able to make a call, so our cellular data card didn't work to well either. We couldn't pick up any TV and there would be no way to get your dish sighted in. The trees here are very tall and a lot of them. There are no sites that are not always shaded. The other thing that really bothered me is they only a few sites with sewer, but they don't have a dump station for the camp, AT ALL..? Other than those things it's a beautiful camp about 1000' from the beach, nice paved walking/biking trails, up the road is a beautiful botanical garden that is part of the state parks so your entrance fee is your campground parking tag. All in all not a bad spot.
This is a really excellent park, we really enjoyed all the paved bike paths to the beach and harbor area. sites are very well laid out with allot of room between and allot of trees. We really enjoyed having all the extra room between site. All roads are paved and plenty wide to get through with a big rig. We're here in a 40' 5th wheel and 1 ton truck. had no problems getting through or backing into spot.
This is a fairly nice park, however I wouldn't call it a "RESORT." Yes the hook ups worked great. and Yes the bathrooms, showers, and laundry were nice, new, and clean. And we thought the people working here were friendly enough. However all the roads and sites are gravel, OK no problem. BUT THEN you all have grass next to your rig that's parked on the gravel. These sites are sooooo small you can not turn the picnic table sideways in them. They are not even close to being decent sized. If you were to put your awning all the way out it WILL touch your neighbor's rig. If your neighbors are talking in normal voices inside there rig, you can hear them from your rig. This is NOT a joke, of all the places we've been these are the smallest sites, BY FAR. Also twice a day when the tide is out the SMELL from the bay is truly disgusting. The best thing about this park is the fact that have a really nice biking/walking blacktop path coming right through it. It goes across the bay one direction and into the town of Anacortes the other. Speaking of which the town is very nice, with a lot of nice places to eat and visit. If and when we come here again we would never stay in this over price campground. There are other places in the area to stay.
Nice place, a lot of kids due to the pool, to worst part is the spaces are very close together, too close. Nice paved roads and sites, good utilities, and all that. Other than that it is nice. We stayed for 2 nights, probably would come back.
Very nice RV park, only complaints were the water pressure was not good and the WiFi wasn't good. That said the park was beautiful and clean and very nice. Laundry was nice and clean: but $2. for wash and the same for dry. Another thing though, is they are a year round park and we would have loved to stay for at least a month. However they don't give monthly rates during the summer? Whatever. Because of this we probably won't be back. Not because the place wasn't very nice.
This was our first time in this RV park. The staff here is excellent, with many people coming back summer after summer. They escort you to your site when you arrive. They have good Wi-Fi, and our Verizon cells and MiFi worked very good here as well. They do have a rec room and they do crafts for the ladies on Tuesdays and bunco and other games on Thursdays. They don't have a playground but do have a dog area. Very nice park with gravel and grass sites, gravel roads and very easy to get around. plenty of room for big rigs to maneuver. They also have a very nice, clean, big laundry room. There is a lot to do in the area. Yellowstone is only 14 miles away, and then there is the Tetons, Quake lake, Henry's lake, and the Yellowstone river. We really enjoyed the people here and our stay for a month and we will be back. Our price was for monthly rate of $400 with electric INCLUDED.
First off we really liked this park, the owners and helpers are all VERY nice folks, very helpful. The location of the park is perfect, not to far from Rapid City, but close to all the area attractions. This area has so much to see it takes a good month just to see it all. The rates are very reasonable, some of the best in the area, $350 per month including electric, this was for a spot without sewer. I do prefer to hook up to sewer, however they only have 10 sites with sewer and they are much closer together. I do have a 35 gal sweet wagon that I use for this purpose. That worked out great. The laundry and restrooms are clean and there are some shade trees, some people might like more trees and some people might like fewer. Probably the only reason for only an 8 rating is there is no pool or playground for the kids. That's great for us, we're retired and are full-time. They have good gravel roads. You can get about 5 or 6 channels on you regular antenna we also had no problem getting our Dish service to work great. The Wi-Fi is spotty like in most campgrounds which is why we have a MiFi Verizon Internet wireless modem for our laptops. We got great Verizon reception while here. The water and pressure are good and the 30 amp electric is good and steady. We WILL be back.
Camped here for 1 nite. very nice and clean, great owners and staff. Nice pull through sites with plenty of room. We saw many other BIG RIGS as well. No freeway noise at all as it's about 1.5 miles off the freeway. Good interior gravel roads. Very clean restrooms, laundry, and pool. The Wi-Fi from our camp site was excellent. We will definitely stay here again.
Beautiful Park, We were escorted to a perfect pull thru site, beautiful fir trees all around. Excellent WiFi. Very friendly and helpful hosts. They stopped by later to bring us warm cookies and make sure everything was good. All the typical KOA Amenities. Very little road noise. Restrooms and laundry very clean. We will definitely stay here again, when passing through this way.
We stayed here 6 weeks while visiting friends in this area where we used to live in a stick house prior to full-timing. So the rate was monthly. They include ALL your electric usage plus water and 2 honey wagon pump outs per week, Monday and Friday. They do have seven pull-through sites with sewer hook-ups, however that area is in the busier area close to the restroom/showers. They also have a nice laundry room. The place is on Green lake, it's very pretty and the fishing is good, However none of the sites are directly on the lake. The park staff is very nice and friendly. The restrooms and showers are clean however we never used them as we prefer to use the ones in our own place. The roads are narrow and gravel, however I had no problem negotiating them with the 1 ton truck and 37' trailer. There are quit a few seasonal trailers parked in various places through the park and they do allow older units to stay so when you first come in you may think it looks junky. we parked all the way towards the west of the park away from the lake and it was very nice , and very very quiet. Lots of nice shade trees but I was still able to set up my dish and get a strong signal the whole time we were here. The sites are very big 40' x 60'. They only open from mid April to late October, as many parks do in this area. Overall we did really enjoy our stay here and will be back next year when we return to the area.
We stayed here for over a month, so the rate reflects a monthly rate of $275. plus .14 per kw on the electric. They don't take credit cards, but they do accept out of state checks. Very nice staff; very nice park, with a lot of trees; nice little pay to fish lake too. A great park to take nice walks. Fairly quiet. It is just off state road 62, but depending on where you are in the park, it really isn't that bad. We were in M12, close to the road on the east side of the park, and the road noise never bothered us. Power, water, and sewer all worked great. We didn't use the Wi-Fi as we have a Verizon Mifi and it worked great here, as did our cell phones. We got about 6 TV channels on the antenna, also we were able to get Dish TV even though there are quite a few trees. Laundry, showers, and restrooms are all nice and clean. The dryers on the ends work the best. There's a Wal-Mart and most everything else about 10 miles away in Benton. And Paducah is only about 20 miles away. We had a great stay here. We will definitely come back, probably on a yearly basis.
This is a very clean new RV park that has an RV dealership next door. We paid for the month at $400 including tax plus electric at $.09 cents per kw. Has a nice hot tube as well, enclosed in a gazebo. The staff is very friendly, and you can get your mail forwarded there, including packages and all. There are a few that seem to be living here, but maybe they are just spending the winter. Great stop for full-timers. Spending the winter there Dec.- March would be very doable. As far as the park being in the flight path of the airport, you only hear the planes in certain wind conditions. The rest of the time they take off and land going another direction, and you can't hear them then. The park is fairly close to the freeway, but we never heard any traffic. It's close to shopping and restaurants.
Great park. Not all sites have sewer or are on the water, but all the sites are great with a great view of Lake Superior. There is a lot of things to do in the area, biking, hiking, kayaking, boating. We had planned to just stay there a couple weeks and ended up staying for 5 weeks. However, there are no weekly or monthly rates. The staff is very nice. Very beautiful sunsets, too.
