This is a smaller older park right in the middle of Bend and right on Hwy 95. It would appear there are quite a few monthly tenants. We were in a pull-through site that was not particularly level. There are some cute Scandinavian touches marking the turn-in and the site numbers and the park is neat and tidy. The owners were friendly and helpful. My biggest complaint is the rate I paid when for $3 more per night I could have stayed at a top-notch park in town. Bottom line - an okay park but overpriced, particularly for winter rates.
We have been staying at this park since its first year, and historically it has been bright, clean, and inviting, but it is showing signs of age and some neglect. There are quite a number of permanent residents and some are allowed to let their sites become cluttered and unattractive. Other sites are in need of new gravel and oil drips cleaned up. The host in the office was friendly and efficient. Hook ups have always been a problem because of the height of the water faucets and the placement of the utilities. Green grass at the sites is nice, although some are very skinny. We will return because it is in the heart of wine country, but it needs some TLC.
This is a lovely location and the park is well-maintained. Nothing fancy. It is difficult to get effusive about the park because I found the owners to be less than friendly or accommodating. They seem to be more focused on efficiency and work than customer relations. I asked to stay an extra night and even though the word "sorry" was used twice, there was no other offer except to say, "We'll have to move you." This may sound petty, but when I visit an establishment such as an RV park or a winery tasting room, I expect to be treated like my business is wanted and desired. The owners need to go outside and move hoses and run the tractor and hire someone with a smile to run the front desk.
This offers FABULOUS oceanfront views; three terraced levels that provide a 180 view (additional sites in the trees). The new manager has made some positive changes since we were last here several years ago including a new office/store and shower/laundry building. Reservation and check-in was very easy and friendly (friendlier than previous visits). A bit on the pricey side, but we always make this a stop when we are on the Oregon coast.
I called to make reservations and was told there was a $30/per person credit application charge for anyone staying one month or longer because they had an felon in the park. Not only do I resent the $60 for the credit checks, but every credit check is a negative reflection on my credit report, and I have excellent credit. This is a warning to anyone who is considering staying at this park for one month or more.
Unfortunately, this KOA is going to have take my general displeasure with KOAs and their ongoing effort to make money. We are in a pull-through site that should not even be a site. We have about 4 inches of clearance between our slide and our neighbors slide. There is not a shade tree to be had; but we have an awesome view of the interstate!!! The office staff was pleasant, but I would never ever stay here again primarily because of this site. Of course the office area greets you with the ubquitous KOA store to relieve you of more of your money. Or I could have paid $2 more to have some special hook up, didn't listen to hear if it was television or internet.
This is just the second season for the owners, but there is lots of potential, and they are working hard. Currently putting in 50 amp service. The owners were friendly and helpful. The park is a lovely wooded setting and quiet. Since there is just a swimming pool and playground equipment, it is not a frantic playland type of park. There are a number of sites that appear to be extended stay, but no one was in most of them, so must just be a vacation location. It is very easy access off the interstate being just one mile up the road and a perfect park for an overnight. We would stay here again and would like to see the improvements over the next few years. Give it a try!! When we looked for this on our mapping program it came up as Homestead RV.
We liked this park because it is adults only, it is a lovely setting, and it is not large. Friendly helpful owners. Well-kept and attractive park in a picturesque setting across the road from an Amish farm. We were backed up (read bumper touching sidehill of road)to a local road with little auto traffic but enjoyed the clip clop of the horses pulling the carriages. Five minute walk into Intercourse. We were parked on the upper level and it is definitely most desirable. The lower level was shoulder to shoulder big rigs crammed in like cord wood. The sites are tight, but doable, and there always seemed to be a fellow camper out to help another get backed in.
We loved loved loved this little campground out in the country. Friendly helpful owner; covered picnic table at every site; cute and well-maintained grounds and quiet and picturesque. I hesitate to sing the praises, because I don't want it to become too well-known. And the crowning touch is that the owner has a 'lobsta' pound on the premises and will deliver lobstas to your door at your specified time - live or cooked. He arrived with a cooked lobsta for each of us on a colorful platter accompanied with crackers. The best lobsta we had on the entire trip and the total cost was $22. We would make this a destination for a week's get-away!!!
Older park with very narrow sites, but very well maintained. Immaculate showers and restrooms. Management a bit slow to address a problem with a fellow resident. Pet friendly with a small designated "pee patch". We were given a reduced rate because we were there for treatment at Loma Linda Medical Center. If we were to ever find ourselves in the area again, we would return to this park. It is the best the area has to offer.
We have spent 3 winter seasons here but will probably not return. This park is owned by Encore, and they choose to call it a resort; which it is not even though there is a $3/day resort fee for anything less than a one-month stay. I don't know what that fee covers!! I like the rural setting of the park and the outside clotheslines. The residents are friendly, and it is a dog-friendly park, although sometimes so dog friendly that no one pays attention to non-stop barking. The park is neat and clean, but there is nothing beyond the ordinary. We experience extreme electrical power fluctuations very frequently, and we are subjected to sewer odors as frequently. We have been bumping through the same potholes in the road for all three seasons we have been here. A shovelful of asphalt thrown into the potholes is as much as is done. It is obvious that only the bare minimum needs are met by Encore, and there is no investment being made in the infrastructure. The manager is an unpredictable personality who has a need to maintain control. Therefore her workcamping staff are less than effective because they have not been given adequate training and "only know half the story". We as guests, even return guests, don't feel our patronage is appreciated. We will take a look next winter to see if there have been any improvements.
