Great spot. We have stayed in a lot of KOAs and other campgrounds around the country and this is one of the best. We stayed in a deluxe site. Very well-kept, lots of trees make it a little tight in a 40 ft motorhome but manageable. Only concern in the place was fuzzy cable reception. The unpaved sites down the hill are a very different story--dusty and wide open. We have used most of the facilities--bouncy pillow great fun but can be crowded with kids. The pool is indoor and OK but it was a stuffy place to be on a warm afternoon. The proximity to the Ft Stevens State Park is great. Bike trails are easily accessible right across the road from the entrance. We had made reservations for 4 nights and tried to extend by 2...place is very busy and we could only get one extra day. Make your plans in advance. This place is worth a return visit.

Good place to stop on the way to or from Portland with good access, quiet, nice landscaping and 50 amp service to run the AC on a very hot day. Not many other reasons to be there. It is right next door to a good breakfast place. We were there in a 40 ft motorhome and there was plenty of room to maneuver--we were able to get around easily. The downside to the place was that the hookups laid out were for motorhomes with all the utility access toward the back. For our RV with side access to the key hookups we couldn't use the sewer connection without sticking way out into the road. Other than that...OK place to stay between point A and point B.

This was a great spot for our two kids and their friends--flat and lots of room to ride their bikes. The playground was OK but not great. The pool was relatively small but a great place to hang out in the 100 deg heat. We were able to watch the fireworks from the campground and the 4th of July parade in the center of town was a lot of fun. Prosser is not a destination town except for the proximity of a number of wineries and tasting rooms. The park is relatively new, easy access from the freeway and lots of room to maneuver inside in our 40 ft motorhome. Except for the heat (and the lack of shade--too new to have big enough trees) it was a great long weekend. We definitely recommend the park if you are in the area for the wine tasting.

We were going to dry camp but it was so hot we decided at last minute to stay where we could get 50 amps to power the roof AC. This turned out to be a basic but very nice park. Lots of mature trees kept the temps down. Maneuvering was tight but quite doable in our 40 ft motorhome. There are a lot of permanent residents. The surrounding area is not great and there were a couple of trains blasting their horns in the middle of the night but it was a lot better than the parking lot at WalMart in the 100 deg temps. We would definitely stay here again if necessary when passing through.

A lot of concrete, very few trees and the sites are too close together. BUT it is 2 blocks from Disneyland, the hookups are in great shape and work, the pool looks very nice (although it was too cool to swim), the kids playground was just fine for our 4 year old after a full day with Mickey and there is a Starbucks right across the street and several fast food places close by. We stayed at another campground the last time and liked this a lot better. It is perfect for doing Disneyland, although we wouldn't come here if we intended to spend many waking hours in the campground. It just isn't very picturesque. As others mentioned, you can watch the fireworks from the campground but they are quite noisy every night which was a concern with two young children already asleep. The only complaint about functionality is the Wi-Fi. It seems to be highly variable and occasionally is gone altogether. All in all, it is a great spot for Disneyland.

Brand new park in beautiful location with good views. But the rate is very high for any park and this one doesn't justify it, and they don't give any discounts. The facilities are very nice, looks like a great pool and spa, clean laundry, etc., but the place isn't finished yet. (e.g. The kid's playground structure is installed, but roped off because the space around it isn't completed yet.) The hookups and pads are concrete and brand new and the internet works great. Backing in our 40 ft motorhome was a challenge. The roads aren't quite wide enough and the 5th wheel across the street was in just the wrong place. I had to use the landscaped area to make the turn to back in. Given all the space they have to work with, the spaces are tighter than they need to be (and they should be much bigger for the price). This was a convenient stopping place on the way back north from Southern CA, but it is too expensive and not close enough to Santa Barbara (about 20 miles south), or Solvang (30+ miles north), to make this a destination site.

We stayed here for 6 nights to do Disneyland. An important clue to the nature of the place was the monument sign that said "Overnighters Welcome". The place is predominantly filled with full-time residents and some of the RVs definitely show their age and hard lives. It was OK as a base for seeing Disneyland--about 10 mins away but it didn't have the sort of ambiance we hoped when we read the reviews, reviewed the campground website and looked at Woodall's.. All the hookups worked, the staff was very helpful and the park was kept very clean. The amenities were OK--the kids playground was all right but the pool was empty being repaired. But you couldn't get away from the feeling that everyone there knew each other and looked at us as odd and driving too nice a motorhome. Fortunately we were gone all day and weren't there during daylight hours or it probably would have felt even more uncomfortable. There is a new park much closer to Disneyland and that is where we will stay next time.

Many others have made the same point--but I will make it too: $80!!! No way that is appropriate. Having said that, we stayed there for 3 nights, enjoyed it completely and our 4 year old had a great time. That is what the campground is all about--lots of things for kids to do. We were there Monday to Thursday so all the activities were "free". On weekends they charge $10 per head to ride the train, bounce on the jumping pillow and ride the bull. That is appalling on top of the per day charge. A few things are included in the regular per day campsite fee--including a very large, like-new play structure and the swimming pool (we didn't use the latter but it was large and looked very nice). The investments made by the owners seem to have been primarily in the fun stuff--the campground itself and the hookups, sites etc are tired and are not at all consistent with the fee they charge--and they need to bring in cable TV. There is virtually nothing available over the air (2 stations plus 2 very fuzzy). Wifi is "free" and worked very well. We stayed in a large pull-through and there was plenty of room for dinghy, the slideouts, awnings etc. The campground is not very close to anything (no restaurants or services nearby) but is well-located between Santa Cruz and its boardwalk/amusement park and Monterey and the fabulous aquarium. Getting to the campground from 101 is via some very narrow roads with overhanging trees or a longer way bouncing across the strawberry fields--scenic but you wonder where the campground is. It is tough to make an overall rating--OK location and access, tons for kids to do, antiquated hookups and ridiculous price--but it was fun, is one of the few games in town and we will probably stay there again. Other campers will need to consider what is important to them and make their choice about staying here.

After reading other reviews we were worried about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They must have read the same reviews and decided to do something about it because they were friendly and helpful in each encounter we had with them. As others have written, the park is very nicely done--lots of trees and flowers and grass between the sites. The sites themselves are large with parking for a dinghy and plenty of room for chairs and the picnic table provided at each site. The park is on two levels and it appears that most of the long-term residents--and there are a lot of them-- are on the lower level (further away from the entrance) so you don't feel like you are staying in a trailer park. The location is good for visiting Portland or the Columbia Gorge. There are not many services in the immediate vicinity of the park but a number of large service stations and a couple of truck stops as well as Camping World are two exits east and are easily accessible. A couple of downsides--the pool is very small and located right at the entrance to the park and the playground is terrible. It only has an old slide and a beat-up swingset and we did not feel it was safe for our 4 year old to use. Notwithstanding that, overall the facility is very nice, clearly well-maintained and we would stay there again when we are in the area.

Brand new park right off I-5. Very convenient access although the sign is not very visible coming from the north until it is too late to get off at the nearest exit. Had to take the next exit and circle around through town. Access roads are paved and the hookups are brand new. There is nice lawn between sites and small, recently-planted trees. There is nothing to do at the park, it is a 10 if you only need a place to hook up and sleep, but it was great for an overnight while traveling between Oregon and California. Although this is right next to I-5 it is up the hill above the freeway and was very quiet. The people were very friendly. The park is the first business to open in what looks like will be a comprehensive travel plaza, a hotel is under construction on the property. We wouldn't make this a destination by any means, but would definitely stay there again if the timing is right while passing by.

We were at this campground for a week while visiting Seattle and we really enjoyed staying there. It is very pretty - the campground is nestled within woods and a small pond. The sites are well screened from each other, paved, hook-ups were modern and the park is spotless. The only draw back was that the internet was very expensive ($25/week via Linkspot) and worked sporadically at best.

We wondered why there were no reviews of this campground given its size. When we pulled in, the answer was obvious -- this campground is mostly occupied by long-term residents with very old RVs. The campground is right next to a major highway and the noise is substantial. The sites are not paved and there are weeds growing everywhere. Overall, the campground has a very depressing feel to it. The upsides is that there was sufficient space between sites and the staff was nice. Also, it has easy access to Victoria. If one decides to stay there despite this review, please do not follow the directions in Woodall -- Woodall uses highway numbers but the streets are not labeled that way. We had a real difficult time finding this place.

This is all about the location -- very easy access to Whistler Village. The hookups were modern, sites were paved, and had great views of the mountains and easy access roads. The downsides were that they charge for internet service. They offer one day, two day and your next option is for a week. Since we were staying here for 4 nights, we paid for a week's worth of service at $27!! They also charge $3/day for cable TV. Our 4 year old son enjoyed the playground but it is really geared towards even younger kids. Overall we had a nice time here and this campground served our needs well.

We don't know what Woodalls was thinking when they gave this place 5 diamonds. First of all, the sites are extremely tight. It took several RV owners (who were very nervous about us possibly hitting their RVs) and 3 tries to get our 40 foot RV into the site. Even for travel trailers and fifth wheels, the sites are so tight that they routinely have to ask the staff to back it in for them. Because the sites are so close, if every RV put out their awnings, then you would have continuous canvas that covers the entire length of the road. However, as others have noted, there are nice hedges that separate the sites. Secondly, they do not offer 50 amp service. This was troublesome given that the weather was 96 degrees when we arrived and we couldn't run our air conditioner fully. They say they offer free internet service but the reception was spotty at best, working only at odd hours. Others have mentioned that the park has a good playground -- but our assessment is that it is very basic and needs updating considering the significant number of kids who stay there. This is a good campsite for visiting Vancouver but not a place you would want to spend a lot of time during the day.

This campground is easy access from I-5, is picturesque and heavily wooded. As others have commented, it is unlike most RV campgrounds. The site are very spacious and isolated from adjacent sites mainly because it is not laid out like a grid. The downsides are, that it does not offer 50 amp service (which was a challenge when the weather outside was in the mid 90s), no wireless internet nor cable TV, and trees blocked satellite reception. It was challenging to park a 40 feet RV but should be easily accessible for smaller RVs. Others have noted that this is a good campground for children -- however, all of the playground equipment were very old and none of it suitable for our 4 year old son. This is a very unique property and with some updates of their hook-up and electrical service, this could be a first-rate campground.

Good location for visiting Portland. The facility is very well kept. The Wi-Fi worked well but as noted by others, we could not get satellite reception. The entrance to the park is hard to see from the road and not easy to get to from I-5. The registration office is on a very steep hill and the sites are very close together. When we opened our bedroom slideout, it ran into our neighbors awning. The other downside of such narrow sites is that your neighbor's sewer hookup is right where you would set up your chairs. But the bottom line, the location, the price and the overall up keep of the place makes this park hard to beat.

Overall a very nice and clean facility -- easy access from I5, paved roads and pads, and nicely landscaped. Unfortunately, the swimming pool is rather small and there is no play structure for kids. We would camp here again.

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this campground was when we pulled in-- access roads are paved, parking pads are concrete, and very nice trees and landscaping between sites. New play structure for kids and a nice pool. Continental breakfast included with price. Wi-fi access is very good and now free. Easy access off Highway 5 but relatively quiet. Located within a walking distance to a very popular water park. We would stay here again.

They recently added a number of sites -- they are far superior to the older sites. (Ask for sites in the low 100s) New hook ups were very nice. But the overall campground is very, very basic -- there are no bathrooms, no showers, and gates are not attended on a full-time basis. This is a very convenient location to SF but there is absolutely no other reason to stay there.

Facilities are great -- showers are clean, hookups are state-of-the-art, several nice play grounds for children and easy access to the beach and downtown shops and restaurants. However, the sites are very narrow and close together, un-paved and quite dusty. It was very nice to see the fire rings at each site but each morning we found our car and motorhome covered with fine ashes. Despite the negatives we would come back -- the beach was beautiful.

Overall a very nice camp site with easy access to the beach and South Lake Tahoe amenities. Campground has lots of trees and updated hookups (some of the best we have seen). However, the downside of all the trees is narrow access roads and very tight turns for a 40' motorhome. First site we were given could not be accessed and they had to assign another. Another downside is that there is no wireless internet. This is a very popular campground (esp during summer) and should be reserved far in advance. We would definitely stay there again.

We camped here thinking that this was close to Sanibel Beach. It turned out we miscalculated -- it was 30+ miles away. There was very little to do on Pine Island - no beach. The campground itself was very basic: paved sites but lots of cracks and we had concerns about leveling legs. Also, we tried to do laundry but found that you had to be completely done by 10pm which wasn't possible after a long day and drive to the beach. In addition, the change machine was broken and no nearby stores to give you change. Not the most family oriented site however, the staff were very friendly.
