We planned on spending two days in Port Renfrew to do some hiking and sightseeing. We stopped to check into the park. We were given an option of two sites so decided to walk in to check them out. We were informed that they were both serviced by power and water, but no sewer. Upon inspection we discovered that “water” was a shared tap nowhere near a particular site and that “power” was a shared 15 amp service. None of the sites were well delineated. Just a very un-level, dirt spots that you could park at. There was not a specific fire pit but remnants of fires that had been laid here, there and everywhere. No tables anywhere. This is the worst excuse for an RV park we have ever come across. We did not stay here even though this is the only game in town. Plan your trip accordingly in order to miss this place. We were very sad that we could not explore the Port Renfrew area. There is a lot to see and do around here.

This is a typical un-serviced “Campground”. What is not typical is the location. You park right on the water. Most sites have amazing views of the Straight of Juan de Fuca with the Washington State Olympic Peninsula on the other side. There are no amenities other than pit toilets and communal water. If you have a coach you can nose in. The sites are gravel and level. There are a couple of pull-throughs in the northern section. You will see amazing sun sets from that side. There is a picnic table and fire ring at every site. Bring your own fire wood. The closest groceries, gas, etc. are located about 30 Km south in Sooke. We stayed here mid-September (mid-week) and were lucky to get a spot. The only “activities” here are surfing, sailing and other like water sports. The shore is rocky but walking is easy. It is very quiet and serene. It cost $15.00 night “Cash Only” slipped into a lock box and collected daily. The entrance gate is locked at 10:00 PM and opens again at 6:00 AM. There is no on-site management but everyone followed the limited rules very well. There is no cell service, thus no Internet of any kind. As long as you are not expecting any thing except a clean quiet "basic" service,you should be happy here. We will be back.

The lower section is an older park that has been updated to accommodate todays RVs (but not anything longer than 30 feet). The upper “View” section is new thus can accommodate all sizes. We stayed in the lower section right on the water. The views are spectacular. The ocean water is warm and there is a large tidal pool (not swimming pool) right out front where kids were playing. There is a sandy strip of beach but anything the water touches is rock. Many of the lower level sites have been rented out to “permanent” seasonals. The park closes at the end of September and re-opens in May so they are not full time but there are shelters built over the RVs with rooms, decks and patios added on. It is obvious some have been here a long time. We found the seasonal users to be very friendly and accommodating. Check in was easy. The atmosphere is very laid back. If the office is not open you find a spot and check in later. The owner/operator is on-site. Rules are simple and enforced. We did not use the Wi-Fi and Cable is basic. There is a communal BBQ available as well as Fridge and Freezer if needed as well as a fish cleaning station. There is no “Dog Walk” as such but plenty of space to walk your pet. We saw no messes left behind but plenty of dogs. This is not a resort but a place to rest and reflect as well as fishing and other water sports. There is a grocery store and liquor outlet in nearby Bowser but not within walking distance. There is a restaurant nearby that is walkable. We paid $40.85 per night and feel we received good value. We will stay here again.

This is an okay park. We were a little disappointed as we believed the park was right next to the ocean. It is across a busy street and many of the sites have a view of a very large industrial storage building. We were fortunate and had a good view of Discovery Passage. Check in was easy and efficient. The staff were friendly and professional. The sites are arranged so that a Coach can nose in and next to it a Trailer can back in. They were gravel and level. The services are in the middle (and well placed) so that everyone has a view (if available). There are no privacy breaks between units and they were typical urban spacing, fairly tight. There is a grass strip in front that has a fire ring and then a chain link fence. The dog walk is a long wide strip of grass next to the busy road so there is not an opportunity for any off leash time. P,W,S and Cable are included. Wi-Fi is planned very well in my opinion. None is free but there is an opportunity to purchase the amount of service you need. Basic being quite reasonably priced and for those that need to stream movies, more expensive. We don’t know how well the service worked as we have our own mobile internet service. Cable is basic. There is a large shopping center within walking distance complete with restaurants if you need them and a Burger Joint right next door. The park is in the city therefore expect typical urban noise. Traffic seemed to die down in the evenings but during the day we heard Helicopters and Sea Planes taking off and landing as well as traffic. We discovered that there are a number of permanent units in the park. It was pretty much impossible to tell which ones. Wow. Every one looked like it was transient. Rules are basic and enforced. While we were there, we were able to spot a number of Killer Whales as well as view Cruise Ships on their way to and from Alaska. This is not a resort so don’t expect to be entertained. We paid $34.65 including taxes and feel we received good value. We would return.

This park is pretty basic but it serves its purpose well. Sites are back in only. P W & S are located conveniently at the left rear. You get a table on a concrete patio but no fire ring. There are a couple of communal fire rings near what appears to be the beginning of a rec center (still under construction). No cable, over the air TV or free internet, but a pay internet service is available. We had good quality cell service and our own Internet so did not test the pay service. There are no trees or shrubbery anywhere in the park but the distance between sites isn’t too bad. It is easy walking distance to the very small village of Telegraph Cove where you will find basic services. There is a Store, Pub, Restaurant and Burger joint. It looks like all of the buildings are on pilings. It is a very pretty setting. Fishing, Whale Watching and a number of other activities are available for a fee. While we were there we were able to catch sight of a Bull Killer Whale that surfaced and blew at least a half dozen times just outside of the harbour (about 50 yards from the RV Park) and while walking down to the shore behind the park a Black Bear climbed into the brush in front of us. You are definitely in the wild here. We paid $36.75 including tax and feel we received good value for our dollar. We will be back if in the area again.

The short drive on the un-paved road to this RV Park was worth it. The road was in pretty good condition when we were there and our “Pavement Princess” and towed survived in and out unscathed. We were assigned a site on the upper level. It has superior views but, when walking, if you are not into a small hill climb, you might want to reserve a lower level site. Both levels had good views of Johnson Straight (part of the main channel used by the Cruise Ships to and from Alaska). We noticed that a lot of the services are geared for Class A units nosed in but folks with trailers did not appear to have any difficulty hooking up to the shore services. The lots are gravelled and level. Gravel is preferable in this part of the world as it is a “Rain Forest” and proper drainage is a must. (I should add that during the summer months there is usually very little rain.) We did notice what appeared to be seasonal units but there was no “junk” and all lots were in great condition. There is a small playground for kids but this park is really geared for fishing and folks like us that just wanted the view and to relax. All services worked as expected. Wi-Fi was free and fair. The down side of our stay was that the Hot Tub (right beside the ocean) was closed for servicing minus one point and there is no cell service here so if you are into heavy usage of the internet you will be disappointed minus another point. We had lunch on the floating restaurant and found the portions small and overpriced. We paid $42.00 per night including taxes and will be back. Be sure to reserve. There is not much else around here for quite a ways.

We reserved a spot for two nights as there was nothing else available in the area. Reserving is a two part process. We filled out the on-line form and then had to telephone during business hours to confirm and pass along our credit card info. The on line form was a waste as we re-did everything via telephone. The road to the park is a very narrow two way road that is also shared by bicyclists and equestrian users. The horse traffic was not an issue but the bicyclists, I’m sure, wished the internal combustion engine and all of us users were dead. That’s not the RV park's fault, just part of the process of getting there. The last lap is a steep curvy descent with amazing views of the ocean. When you reach the RV park you will notice that the office/owner’s residence is a dump. As well, you will see about four port-a-potties across the road. That is the wash room. No showers or laundry. No store, no facilities what so ever. There is a single rope swing for kids to play on. Check-in was easy. She took our money and gave us a site number and a point in that direction. Sites are not numbered. There were three vacant sites where she pointed. I asked a camper what number they were in and counted back from them to find my designated number. We had a “Nature Setting” as opposed to Oceanside. Our site was long but very narrow. It is pretty much slide to awning all the way along. Oceanside is just as cramped. There is one fifteen amp service shared by two sites. I tried to microwave 6 oz of liquid and discovered it took two minutes. Normally it takes 20 seconds. We used the power for lighting only after that. There is no sewer service but you can borrow a portable honey wagon if you want. The dump station is on a hill so it is a waste of time trying to empty your tanks there. There no cable, no Wi-Fi, no nothing except the gorgeous view of the ocean. The “miles of beach” as listed on their web site are all rocks. Very hard to walk on. The pictures with sand on their web site do exist. They are just very small isolated pockets. In a nut shell, if the fee was $25.00 I would have a hard time considering returning but at $44.10 including taxes, not a chance. This is one place that is just pillaging and plundering ‘cause there is such a shortage of RV parks in the area. We will never return.

Pedder Bay is quite a distance from Victoria. Its main attraction is the Marina and Fishing. Upon arrival you are asked to announce yourself by telephone at the entrance kiosk. You will then be asked to proceed to your site and, once you have set up camp, come to the office to pay and complete the registration. We found this a little unusual but it worked. Perimeter roads are paved. The inner sites are wide, level, gravel with a picnic table and fire ring. Service facilities are to the left rear and all worked well. You are separated from your neighbor by a cedar hedge. Outer spaces are back in and a few "view" sites overlook the harbour complete with decks (additional cost). Free Wi-Fi was strong the whole time we were there and there was good selection of cable channels. There was NO CELL SERVICE though. We did not notice any full timers probably because Pedder Bay is quite a distance from anywhere. There were no loud parties and staff patrolled regularly. This is a great place to go if you are into fishing, boating or just want to come and relax. There are hiking and biking trails, boat, canoe and kayak rentals and I’m sure you would not have any problem going for a charter fishing day. We did not see a playground but did see lots of kids. We paid $37.60 per night and felt we got good value. We like this place and will be back. We would have given it a ten if there was cell service.

This park is situated right on the ocean. There is a very nice natural beach with plenty of very fine soft sand. It would be better if the jetsam and flotsam were removed. This area is prone to sea lettuce washing ashore so at certain times can be a bit smelly. We had an ocean front site (number 6) which was plenty wide with our opposing slides. Water, sewer, and electric were well placed and worked as expected. Free Internet was terribly slow. Not worth the effort as we used our own. Cell service was excellent. Limited channels available over the air and there is no cable. This is a very pet friendly park. Dogs are allowed on the beach! (We did not notice any dog poop anywhere.) There is no playground as such but the beach and a very large grassed play area were well used by children. We paid $52.50 for the Premium Ocean View with a Good Sam discount. We would have given this place a 10 if the sea lettuce had been cleaned up and the Internet was better.

This park is location location location. The views from the 18 RV sites are amazing. If you are looking for full services on a concrete pad you will be disappointed. Sites are packed gravel and fairly wide. There is a community fire pit (wood supplied) and every site has a table. If you like being right on the ocean with a pretty good sandy beach then this is for you. No reservations so if you want to be here for the weekend I suggest you get here on Wednesday to set up camp. The Capitol Regional District maintains the park and does a very good job. It's clean and quiet. Dogs are not supposed to be allowed on the beach between June and September but we noticed a number of people who didn't seem to care. We are looking forward to our next stay here.

This is a very nice, clean, pleasant park. The owners are friendly and eager to please. All services worked as expected. The free WiFi was strong. The owners have planted a huge garden and allow guests to help themselves. Fresh cucumbers and tomatoes were wonderful. The dog run is large but not totally fenced. We did not notice any droppings anywhere. There is a sign posted that a ten dollar fine will be charged if you don’t pick up (should be standard at all parks). It is back from the highway so noise was not a problem. We chose this park after looking at some in and closer to Spokane that didn't appeal to us. The drive back into the city is short and pleasant. There are a few permanents but none were trashy. Rate was with GS discount. I would have rated it a 10 if there was cable. We would return.

This park works well for the short time it takes to visit the dam and see the laser show. It is also the only propane and laundry in town. The services are well situated and everything worked as expected. The water faucet is located inside in an insulated box (for cold weather use). Cable (a good selection of channels) and free Wi-Fi worked well. Although the park is situated right on the main highway, it wasn't that noisy. We were on the back row. Pull throughs on the first row might be different. There are a good number of permanents there but none looked too trashy. We would stay again.

This is a very nice, well run park. It was a pleasure to park on grass although I was worried we would leave ruts - We didn't. The check in staff was friendly and efficient and we were escorted to our site. Wi-Fi was strong and fast. All amenities worked well, but we were a little disappointed that there was no Cable TV. We were able to pick up news and weather on the antenna so it wasn't a big deal. We did not see a playground and noticed there were no children there. The park was not that busy during our stay so guests were spaced nicely. If there was a full house, I would be concerned as sites are close together. Main Street Winthrop is a short, pleasant walk through a museum and along a board walk. Both the museum and the shops are worth a visit. Thirty dollars includes taxes. We will be back.

Very convenient when getting off of the Sidney to Anacortes Ferry late in the evening. We reserved because we knew we would arrive after hours. We were assigned a site when the reservation was confirmed so our arrival was simple. We viewed the on-line map and knew just how to get to our site. Their sites are squeezed very close together but are level and all amenities are correctly placed and worked just fine. We heard quite a bit of road noise but other than that, our stay was good. Forty-two includes all taxes. We will be back.

We reserved the last available site for the upcoming weekend. As such, our expectations were low. We were assigned site 55. A pull through. We arrived late in the evening. Check in was pleasant and efficient. Directions to our site were easy to follow. Perimeter roads are paved. When we drove up to the site, I was concerned that we would never get level as it was up a short hill and appeared very uneven. I was wrong. Once positioned, we found we were dead on. Utilities were properly located to the left rear. The site was graveled (no grass) but quite large and a good distance from the neighbors. I was surprised to see that it had been freshly raked. There was a table and fire pit well placed. As the name suggests, you are in a forest; thus do not expect any satellite TV signal. Cable was available, but we did not hook up. A walkabout revealed that sites get smaller as the view gets better. Some of the ocean view sites looked to be quite cramped. We noted some permanents, but for the most part they were segregated and not all that junky. They looked more like locals parked for the season. We only encountered one problem and that was the 30 amp service plug. It had been installed upside down. I could not plug in. 55 was the only site out of about ten others nearby that was wrongly installed. I had to resort to using the 15 amp plug in. When I explained the problem to the office the little girl just said, "I'll make a note," but I strongly suspect that she already knew of the problem (‘cause she didn’t make the note nor was she surprised). She could not tell me when/if it would be repaired. We didn't need A/C, and the 15 amp shore power was enough for the rest of our needs, so it wasn't that big of a deal. If 55 is the worst site that Living Forest has to offer, it's pretty darn good. My rating could have been an 8 or a 9 if the office staff gave a hoot.

This is a great resort geared for young families. It has a pool, fishing pond, arcade, a small par 3 course, basket ball nets, road hockey nets and a pretty good play ground for tots. The sites are fairly large, but not much for privacy. The roads are gravel and because it has been so hot and dry lately, it was a bit dusty. I would have given this one a 10 if the roads had been paved and a patio provided to keep the rig a little cleaner. There were a lot of dogs around during our stay and we were surprised to find not a single mess even though they do not have a specific pet area. Rules of the park are pretty much common sense and appear to be enforced. Our stay was very pleasant. We will not be back unless we have the grand kids with us.

Access from Victoria is via very pretty little winding country road. It is paved and follows the coast for about 26 Km through the little community of Metchosin. The drive is worth it. Just don’t be in a rush. The park is laid out in three sections. Garden, Lagoon and Ocean. We were in Garden, but would have rather been in Ocean or Lagoon. Ocean, of course, faces the Strait of Juan de Fuca with views of ocean going vessels in the distance. Check in was efficient and when complete we were handed an info package that included a list of rules that were not out of line. We were escorted to our site and guided in. (We did not ask for this service and would have rather looked after ourselves.) Sites are on the small side, but we did have room for both slides and awning. Every site has a small brick patio, picnic table and some have a fire pit (not ours). P W & S are located at the rear almost out of sight. It is big rig friendly, but there are no pull throughs. There is a nice sandy beach with shallow water even during high tide. We saw lots of children playing in the water but we felt it was too cold for us to go in. There are some sites that have obviously been taken over for the season, but none are junky and it doesn’t look like there are any permanents. The park is clean, has a club house with book exchange, TV, etc. We noted that the washrooms were clean, as were the laundry facilities. Everyone we encountered was friendly and for the most part it was a quiet stay. If you are not a dog person, perhaps you may want to give this park a pass. Dogs are allowed on the beach off leash. Our dog loved the freedom to run in the sand (but she too didn’t want to go into the water). There are a lot of dogs here, but we did not see a single pile of crap! Wi-Fi worked well (your usage is monitored). Abuse the service and you lose it). Cable (without a box) worked well. For those that need to be closer to the city of Victoria this may not be for you. This park would have been rated a 10 except the sites are on the small side, the interior roads were gravel not paved and there was an odor of rotting Sea Lettuce noticeable during low tide. All in all a very attractive park. We would happily return.

Located about 20 km west of Sooke on highway 14. Typical provincial park layout. Table and fire ring provided at each site. This is located in a rain forest so don't expect to see much of the sun. Some sites would fit a 35 footer but not many. It gets very busy in the summer months so reservations are a must. There is very little to do at this park. This is a very good place to relax and enjoy the quiet. A number walking trails will lead you to a rock and pebbly beach where you can watch for seals, sea lions etc (including whales in season). The water is cold so don't expect to go swimming. A few km west is Jordan River if you are into surfing or kayaking.

This park is all about fishing although it can be used as a base to explore the west coast of Vancouver Island. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The sites are on grass and have a fire pit and table. They appear to be well spaced, but there was only one other unit in the park while we were there. No kids were around at this time of year, but we did see a playground, mini golf, and a pool. It is right on the ocean but there isn't a sandy beach. We used this park as a base and will be back.

We have spent the last 6 months here. This park is very convenient to pretty much everywhere in Victoria. It is a very quiet place considering the close proximity to the city. The harbor views are spectacular. The walkway to downtown is almost at your doorstep. The water taxi service is a treat (available only during the summer). A propane delivery service is available upon request. Kayak Rentals, Fishing Charters etc. are available at the Marina which is only steps away. There is no playground and a steep, rocky, embankment to the ocean. Not a good place for kids. We found that, after the transient guests disappeared, the cleanliness of the park improved a lot. Long term guests pick up after their pets and looked after trash a lot better. Long term guests usually just stay for the winter as the climate is very mild. We noted only five units that were year round residents. Some were skirted but none were tacky. There were only a few “winter” guests that let their spaces and units degrade. The park is very safe. These are the good things. What we didn’t like was that services are shared by two sites. This configuration works as long as a motor home and a Trailer share so there was a little more room. Motor homes nosed into their site and trailers backed in. If you are unlucky, then your cables and hoses have to run under your unit. Sites are very close together. This is an older park not designed for today’s units with slides. They can accommodate 45 footers though. The roads are paved but tired. The sites are gravel which is well suited to accommodate the winter rains. Not so nice in the warm weather though. There is no Wi-Fi but internet is available in the Laundry Room and at the on-site restaurant. Cable TV is available but for most channels you will need a box. If you need to depend on the parks bathroom facilities they are limited but clean. Our monthly rate was about $20.00 per night including taxes. We would stay again.

This park is hard for me to rate. I did not see it during the daylight. I discovered this park because I ended up taking an alternative route to my destination. A raging snow storm was covering a high mountain pass which was my intended route. I fully expected to spend the night in a pull off beside the road and I was looking for one when I saw their sign. I arrived just before 9:00 PM and was surprised to find they were open. Check in was pleasant and efficient. I was directed to a pull through so I would not have to disconnect the toad. I was worried the site would be too narrow to use our slides but we had plenty of room. We were snuggled between trees that, during regular season, would allow privacy. The roads were gravel as was the site. It was quite level and easy to maneuver into. Water had not been turned on yet as it was still below freezing outside. 30 amp power was good. It powered two electric heaters as well as all of our other utilities just fine. I took a quick walk around the park and found the layout to be a bit of a hodge podge but most sites seemed to be a descent size. I did not use any of the facilities so cannot comment on their condition. Cable and Wi-Fi were not offered so I expect do not exist. I did hear trains during the night but after having been on the road for almost 14 hours, not much mattered except my pillow. I am giving this park a higher rating than it may deserve but it served my purpose well. I am planning to return during warmer weather to explore the surroundings and perhaps do some panning for gold. Price of $33.00 includes all taxes.

Easy on and off of the freeway. Check in was quick and efficient. The rules and regs are easy to handle. The sites are small but well planned. The pad is asphalt with a stamped patio area. The rest is grass and you are boxed in with a hedge. It is clean and well maintained. The in-door pool and hot tub area were nice. Laundry was expensive but washers and driers worked well. It has a dedicated area to wash your rig. Great path/dog walk area that is heavily forested and follows a brook and it’s about a mile long one way. There is some train and traffic noise but that is to be expected. It is located in the middle of a city. On-site store appeared to be well stocked. Shopping not within walking distance but a short drive away. Wi-Fi is free for the first ½ hour then $5.00/day. The signal was strong and fast. Cable TV worked well with a good variety of channels. This park is just a little overpriced for what you get but, since there are no other parks in the area, we would return.

We chose this park because it appeared to have many good reviews. Just off of I-5 with easy access. It looked good on arrival. I’ll list the good things first. It is clean, well landscaped, and mostly quiet. Close to shopping, great laundry facilities and they list a pool and exercise equipment. The negatives: The first thing I saw when stopping to check in was a large sign saying no dogs over 40 pounds. A little odd but I shrugged it off. Our dog is less than 10 pounds. Check in was quick and easy…then we were given directions to our site. I had asked for a pull through because this was just going to be an over-night. I was told I had to unhook the toad as the site was configured with hook-ups at the rear. I had paid a premium for the pull through but I guess if the Jeep had to go in first it was not that big of a deal. Then I was told how to get to the site. I had to go all the way back to the entrance (office is near the back of the park) to take a perimeter road because my rig was too big to make some turns! I’m only a 27 footer. The roads are very narrow. Got to our site only to discover it is just barely wide enough for my rig with the slides out. You cannot walk on the concrete pad from front to rear of your rig without stepping on the grass. That wouldn’t have been too bad except the grass is on a fairly steep slope. The slope cannot be used to sit and relax on. Obviously no table ‘cause it would slide away. I guess it’s pretty to look at but I would have settled for flat dirt with a table and a place to sit and relax. That leaves you with what is left of your pad for your grill and a couple of chairs if you want to sit outside. Don’t worry about having room for the awning out. You couldn’t use the shade anyway. The rules state that no rug or carpet can be on the grass. No worries. It's too steep to use for any reason. Do not park your toad with the bumper anywhere near the road and do not get anywhere near the grass with the wheels of any vehicle. It’s in the rules. To make sure you don’t get a wheel in the grass they have planted steel posts at the site exits. If you have a bigger rig and aren’t careful, the park owner will make sure that your rig is damaged rather than have the grass touched. This place is “don’t “crazy. The roads have “No Parking” painted on them everywhere. No Dogs signs are everywhere. The map we were given at check-in showed a Pet area just south of the office…..except when you get there, signs saying no pets allowed are everywhere? I questioned the staff and was told the best place for your pet is outside of the park…across a four lane road in the Shopping Center Parking lot. This is not a pet friendly park. This is not a kid friendly park. I’m glad we didn’t bring our Grandchildren. They would like them to be leashed at all times too. This is plainly just not a friendly park. It reminds me of an Aunt’s house where the furniture was covered in plastic. You are welcome to visit if you just sit and don’t move. Wi-Fi is included in the price and they have 4 hot spots. None had a signal strong enough to be effective. Cable too, was included. The selection was a number of local with a bit of religious and Spanish. I could have done just as good using our antenna. I can’t believe that his place has received so many high ratings. Before relying on just numbers like I did, READ all of the reviews. All of the negatives have been listed by users before me. Look at their photos. The first one shows the size of the sites. This Class A didn’t even have any slides. I have a hard time giving this place a two for the price they charge. We paid $38.00 per night and will never be back.

Easy access to park. Friendly check in. Pull-through was long and wide enough to accommodate us without disconnecting our tow. Site was level and all services were well placed and working fine. It was clean and quiet. There are some long term residents but their areas were not terribly cluttered. The dog walk is very small. It's not really a walk just a small pen. There was only one thing that really bothered me about this park. The toilet stalls did not have doors. There was instead a shower curtain for privacy. The shower stalls had doors. Still, all in all a good overnighter. We paid $30.25 including tax and Good Sam discount. We will return.

Great park. We loved it here. Check in was easy and fast. The host met us while we were entering the park. He guided us into the site even though it was not necessary. The sites are long, level concrete with all services correctly placed and properly working. Nice wide grassy strip separating the pads. Grass was well manicured. The only downside was the lack of mature trees. It was very warm in Napa and some shade would have been nice. Rules were not overbearing. Internet and cell service was 100%. We paid $38.00 per night including the Good Sam discount. We will return.

Check in was quick and friendly. We were in the overflow section which is just a parking lot but we knew that going in. Spaces were wide and long enough for us. We did not feel cramped. The camp host was friendly and helpful. The location is what attracted us and brought us back. We were here about 4 years ago. We were disappointed in the level of service though. There are no sinks in the bathrooms and half of them have been closed due to budget cuts. Garbage pick up must be limited too as the bins were full. The place no longer has the atmosphere that we found before. The dump station is closed (we had to drive a couple of miles to the next State Park to dump). I doubt if we will be back. We paid $55.00 to stay in a bare parking lot with limited service. The Parks Department needs to shake their heads.

Check in was efficient and professional. Rules for dogs were spelled out clearly. None were unreasonable. Sites are all gravel. No grass or patio. You get your services, a table and a fire pit. I think it would have been nice to have some type of patio just to keep your rig a little less filled with sand. Assess to the great beach was easy. Other guests were friendly and well behaved. All of the services worked well including the Wi-Fi that is part of the package. Cell service was excellent. The only big down side was our site(132). It has to have been the only one in the park that wasn't level. I added 4" the both front levelers. It made the first step to get into the rig a little big. All in all, minor issues. We will return. $41.00 included the additional for the dog.

Rating is for what we expected. This is a gravel parking lot. You get an aluminum picnic table and a fire ring. The sites are large and pretty level. The surrounding desert scenery is beautiful. The night skies are amazing but is still just a parking lot. If you are expecting anything else you will be disappointed. Generators are allowed right now because many of the other campgrounds are closed. We would return.

Check in was quick, friendly, and professional. The sites are paved and accommodated our rig, tow, and slides very well. No patio but well maintained grass with reasonable space from our neighbors. All amenities worked as expected. The noise from the freeway was not too bad. We were in site 75 near the back. I have not deducted for the noise because we were forewarned by previous posts. Management warned us about leaving anything out at night because of their sprinklers coming on and because there appear to be a number of homeless people living in the bush near by. I noticed that they have erected fencing to help eliminate the free-loaders. We have no complaints. We requested maintenance rake the long pine needles from our site because our dog dragged then in. They were at our site within minutes. The pool and hot tub looked clean as did the social room, but we didn't use them. Bathroom use requires a 5 digit code. This is not very user friendly, but it does keep the bums out (no pun intended). We paid $70.00 per night and this included $4.00 for the dog. We would return.

Warm professional greeting on arrival. Escort to site. Site is wide enough for slides and long enough so that we did not have to disconnect the toad. Site is level with a small concrete patio. Nice landscaping. No fire ring. Washrooms are very dated but clean. Wi-Fi is PAY! $5.00/day or $20.00/ week. Points lost for pay Wi-Fi and dated facility. No fuel of groceries within walking distance. Pick up your supplies before you park. Price reflects $1.00 for cable TV and Good Sam discount. We would stay again.

Check-in was efficient, friendly and helpful. We were asked how we chose the park and when we told them it was because of the reviews from rvparkreview they were pleased. This park is clean, well laid out and very nicely landscaped. We had a pull through (site 33) and there was plenty of room for both of our slides, awning, and to park our toad. Most sites are able to accommodate even the largest of big rigs. The pad was level concrete. The site was grass and washed pea gravel. It had a fire pit and an aluminum picnic table. The washroom/showers were clean and updated. We were given tokens at check-in so the showers were free. The small store/gift shop appeared to be well stocked. The managers had planned an event for every evening but we chose not to attend any. The pool and hot tub were clean. There was no cable TV but we knew that going in. Wi-Fi was included in the price and it worked very well. The park has a shuttle service that will take you to Zion (we did not use it). There are two fenced dog runs but are quite small. Neither are grassed which is too bad because our dog will not do her business unless she is on grass. (I won’t deduct points just because our dog is fussy). We had only one problem. The 30 amp service was only delivering 15 amps. One of the dual breakers was faulty. I’m not deducting points because, until we told them, how could they know? I think more RVers should carry and use Surge Protectors. Ours picked up the problem immediately. We used the circuit until it was repaired simply because it worked the same as using a 15 amp adapter. This is a good base to use for visiting Zion. We will be back.

Good overnighter. Site was long enough that we didn't have to disconnect the toad. Our site had a level gravel pad just wide enough for the coach. The rest of the site was unlevel dirt and rocks. There was a very small picnic table (unlevel) and no fire pit. No pet area. The owner said to walk our dog beside the highway. Free Wi-Fi worked well. No cable TV. Shade trees were nice. Rest rooms and laundry were clean (free shower). Owner was friendly. We would not likely stay here again.

An obvious ex-KOA. We asked for, and were given, full hook-ups. We were in the E section and it has a lot of permanents. Their units were skirted and had large propane tanks sitting on their sites. That being said, there was not a lot of junk visible. They were fairly neat and tidy. Our site was gravel and dirt. We were able to extend our slides but not the awning. The water,sewer and power were positioned mid stall so they were convenient. We had table and firepit "shared" with our neighbor. The stalls work so that the services for two units are in the center. Too cosy for us. The pet area was not fenced but was clean (bags provided). The non-pet areas had lots of doggie do around so some people were obviously too lazy to take their pooches for a walk. Overall, we were not impressed. If we are back in this area, we will keep going. Price paid was with Good Sam and included the extra for the dog.

This is so much better than Lewis & Clark down the road in Shelby. There is NO WIND. The sites are conventional as apposed to "circle the wagons". The operator is very friendly and accommodating. The park is older but everything is neat, clean & tidy. We were given a pull through and didn't need to disconnect our toad. Longer units would have to. As others have observed, there is a very nice park across the street. Lots of stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. Easy off, easy on to I 15. This was just an over nighter for us but we will return. We spent many nights at Lewis & Clark because we did not know this place existed. We will never go back there. Cell access was good, Internet worked fine, No camp fires, no bugs or mosses. Site was pretty level and wide enough for both of our slides and awning to fully extend. It appears that there are a few long termed, but their sites were tidy.

This is boon docking. There are no facilities other than "out houses" and a hand water pump available. The vistas are spectacular. Very quiet and serene. There are sites situated very close to the river. Also some site that are very close to the Trans-Canada Highway so these will be quite noisy. Not big rig friendly at all. The park road is narrow and winding. Lots of low hanging branches and large trees to maneuver around. Just a few miles to Canmore where there are all amenities and plenty to see and do. The best part of our visit was a Black Bear wandering through our site in broad day light. We would stay here again.

Very kid friendly. Don't expect peace and quiet during the day. Rules are enforced and there are a number. Follow the "common sense" rules and you will have a great stay. Wonderful "kid friendly" beach/lake a short walk across the road. Shade trees are abundant. The RV section is tightly packed. Expect to get to know your neighbor. Reservations are a must. Check the URL for rules and expectations. Plenty of activities for all ages near by. The bathrooms are a bit dated but clean. The roads and pads are NOT paved. Small bit of grass and gravel in the A section. The rest appeared to be all grass. We would stay here again (only when entertaining grand kids).

This place has been a family run operation for about 50 years. The owners have done a great job keeping up with the times. It is always clean and neat. The full timer area is segregated and it is kept tidy as well. Lots to do in the area if you like the outdoors. No shopping near other than groceries and fuel. We love the creek that runs through the park. This place is always quiet and peaceful.

Great over nighter. Quiet, clean, easy access, level sites. This is a well planned park. Playground and huge field for pets. As a bonus, a herd of deer frequents often in the evening.

This park is full of noisy Quads. It is geared for ATV users. Trails are accessable right from the camp site. The site we were assigned was level but small. The water and power were poorly located. The roads were dusty and the wash rooms were located far away at the Office/Service Station. For an ATV user, this place may be ideal. For us it was: not so much. We will never be back.

This is the only location within the park boundary with services. The office staff were friendly and helpful. The washrooms were very clean but no showers are available. There is no such thing as a level site in this park. The picnic table was chained and cemented down. Not level nor in a convenient location. Shade trees are sporadic. Your neighbors are very close. I would not stay here again. There are private parks just outside of the park in Tusayan that are service by the park shuttle service.

We are glad that we drove the extra distance to stay inside the park. It made touring and hiking that much easier. Our site was not very level. It took two blocks to do the job but we feel it was a small price to pay for the scenery and location. There are bear warning signs stating not to leave any food about. We weren't lucky enough to see any bears though. The sites are very private which is nice. We would stay here again.

The pull throughs were long and wide. Nice grass, but there were not enough trees. The park was set back from the hiway so there was minimal noise. We felt it was a great base from which to see the area. We felt very at home because we tow a Jeep Wrangler. Moab is serious Jeep country...for good reason. The speed limit is strictly enforced at 5MPH which we didn't mind. There a horse pasture next door and it was nice that the very friendly horses came to visit. We would stay here again.

Easy on, easy off of the Interstate. Not much road noise, but the train traffic was bad. Nice big level pull through sites. You pay at the Service Station Next door before visiting the Camp Host to check in. We found this a little odd. Although we did not have any difficulty with the management, abrupt messages regarding guest behaviour posted in a number of places throughout the park did not make us feel welcome. We will look elsewhere for a better overnighter.

Easy on, easy off of the Interstate. It was far enough from the hiway so that it wasn't too noisy. IMO it is a good overnighter. It would be better if there were some trees to break the wind. We were assigned a site that would at least shelter the right side of our unit from the wind. There are no pull throughs but most sites are "curb-side". We would overnight there again.

Although quite expensive, we felt the price was justified. The park is very well maintained. All services are included in the price including cable TV and WiFi. Our level site included a tiled patio as well as a Mexican style fireplace. A short, well marked, trail leads across some dunes to the beach. We would stay at this park again.

We were pleased with this park. The staff were friendly and helpful. Easy off, easy on I-80. The grassy sites were level and well maintained. Be aware. The sprinkler system comes on early in the morning. It is not noisy but equipment left outside will get wet. The pool is clean, fenced and well maintained. WiFi is not free though. We would return to this park.

As an overnighter we found this park to be excellent. Easy off, easy on and "quiet". The staff were friendly and helpful. WiFi is free as is cable TV. Our site was big and level. We did not have to disconnect our toad. Fast food and restaurants (and a bar) are very close by if you don't feel like cooking. We would return to this park.

We found this park to be poor value for our dollar. It was too far off of the main road. The access road was rough and narrow for about three miles and no way to turn around with our towed. The sites were dirt only. Our site, and others we viewed, were not very level. WiFi was pay. No cable TV. Not a fair value for the services available. We would not return to this park.
