We stayed here over the long July 4th weekend (when we couldn't get into the State Parks.) Sites are narrow and just barely long enough for our 37' MH. The park was full and crowded with lots of big families, kids, pets., etc. but just what you'd expect on a big weekend. The owners/managers were very hands on and were constantly cruising through the park. We had a space on the river and the view was great. Don't miss the Kernville restaurant just west of the park on Siletz Road. Great food, service and view. We would stay here again but hopefully in the off season when it's quiet and Passport America rates are accepted.

This is a ROD, AOR park. Very clean and comfortable; many pull thru spaces and all sites are good size. No pool but there's a nice playground, horseshoes, volleyball and min golf. Friendly helpful staff. Great location for visiting Port Townsend, Port Angeles, Sequim, Olympic National Forest, etc., plus very close to the bay. We enjoyed a visit each day from a mama deer and her 2 youngsters. Would definitely stay there again.

Typical state park set up with fire ring and table. Only 28 sites have water and electric and these are the most popular. All the remaining sites are dry. Bathrooms were clean but old and very basic. Reservations are available (at a cost) and recommended if staying during the summer or holidays. We raked our own site to get rid of cigarette butts and nut shells. Great location to visit Tacoma...don't miss the glass museum! Free parking and free, fast tram service to downtown.

This park is tired. Wi-Fi was down, pool and spa were empty (and looked like they'd been that way for quite a while), no cable TV, uneven sites, etc. The fountain near the entrance was dry and dirty and all the buildings need repair and paint. There are signs for everything: parking on the "grass", speeding, dog waste, extra guests, etc. All with the threat of being, "Asked to leave the park and not return." The store didn't even have the most basic of supplies. Just a few miles from LaPine which is a nice little town and 20 miles from Bend. Don't miss Newberry Volcanic Park: it was awesome!

We stayed here a couple years ago and it's even better than it was before. Helpful, friendly owners were always available. Landscaping has been improved, sites are clean and the WiFi worked and was free! Plus, the laundry room is large and inexpensive. We had a site on the river and were able to enjoy 2 families of baby ducks that were adorable. We will definitely stay here again

This is basically a park for long term residents, with many older units in need of major maintenance. One trailer had 4 or 5 old refrigerators piled next to it. Fire rings are actually old rusty wheels without tires. There are about 10 spaces for travelers but the whole place needs a lot of work. The pool was open and looked clean; however, the WiFi was down and the "store" was inadequately stocked. We would not stay there again.

We love Oregon State Parks, but this one isn't one of our favorites. Lots of dry weeds and it lacked that lush forested feeling. Spaces were wide enough but most lacked much privacy. Great area for sight seeing: beautiful coast line, light house nearby, hiking trails. Good seafood in the little town of Bandon.

This park was a real disappointment! We went in on a ROD reservation and were put in space so narrow we could barely get our slides out. No way could we get the awning out. The wood on the picnic table top was completely rotted through and thus unusable. When we asked for another space, the office staff said that wasn't possible, even thought there were other spaces available. Their attitude stunk! The pictures on the web site were taken a loooooong time ago; no real landscaping in the park, just rocks and tired looking bushes. Sign at the entrance says it's a 5 star park. That too must have been a long time ago. This place needs a lot of TLC, some updating and a polite and caring staff.

Some, but not much, has changed since last review. Still lots of heavy equipment in use and daily bonfires to burn debri. The worst thing is finding the entrance; you have to pull into the driveway of a lumber yard, go around to one side and then you'll see the campground. We missed it the first time and had to go way out of our way to come back. There's nothing in the KOA campground guide directions that give you a clue about this problem. On the positive side, it appears they are making an effort to improve the place - new sod is being laid, outside workers busy the 2 days we were there, and the staff was pleasant and helpful.

We loved this place but keep in mind it's a campground, not a RV resort. The grounds were lovely with flowers, lots of trees, birds, bunnies, putting green, horseshoe pit, even a koi pond. We arrived about 5 pm, chose our own site and paid by the honor system. Although the club house, bathrooms, etc. were older, everything was well maintained and very clean. As an aside, there's an old train depot, museum and antique farm equipment on the property which is owned by the County. After a long day on the road, we were willing to settle for anything that had a pull through for our 37' motorhome with toad and really got lucky when we found this place.

This is a beautiful campground with spacious sites, tables and firepits, lots of trees and flowers (in April anyway). Some sites with water and electric only, some with FHU's. Very nice staff, always available. No cell phone(Verizon) or TV reception at our site. We came by way of River Road from Santa Rosa in a 37 ft MH and had no problems but evidently the trip up Hwy 1 from San Francisco can be a bit hairy. We stayed free as members of Resorts of Distinction.

Clean, well maintained park with lots of grass and trees and pull through sites. We stayed 2 nights and there was alot to see in the area including the new park and bridge in town. We'd planned to see Lassen National Park but they won't be opening this year till July due to ice and snowy roads, so check on access if you plan to visit. Friendly, helpful, available staff. Easy access to I-5 but no traffic noise.

Clean, well landscaped park. Friendly helpful staff. Some long term tenants but spaces were well maintained and clean. Good access to Hwy 5 but minimal noise from freeway was not a problem for us. Best thing about this park are the bathrooms. Instead of just a shower stall, you get a big bathroom with huge shower, sink, toilet, heater, seat, hooks for clothing, etc., all to yourself, and they were immaculate. Only reason I'm not giving it a 10 is the lack of spa or pool.

Not much as changed since last review. Still a lot of permanent folks and still a lack of landscaping and general maintenance (most of the picnic tables were falling apart). However, laundry area was great: clean, large and cheap! Plus, there's lots of things to do and see in the area.

Really enjoyed our stay. Immaculate grounds, well landscaped, extra long spacious sites. Staff helpful and friendly. The town of Ramona is about 5 minutes away and has everything you need. Easy jaunt to San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park, Julian, etc. We were on one of the upper tiers and the road noise was minimal however those on the lower road might get more. Very quiet day and night. Families will enjoy the playground and miniature golf.
