Very clean and State Park campsite. The RV sites are all pull through, so it's easy in and easy out. Sites are paved and level. Some have shade, but most are without. Electrical and water hook ups are all working and in good order, bathrooms are clean and well kept. Showers are free; water was warm but not hot. No camp store but nearby town is walking distance. Would recommend and we'd go back there again.

We stayed one night at this site. It is located on the shores of Hyatt Lake. It is beautiful, quiet and peaceful. All the sites have a table and fire pit. The bathrooms are clean and have free and hot showers. The camp host is very helpful and friendly. There is a beach area with playground equipment and supposedly great fishing in the lake. The site has a dump station that is convenient. Some sites have a nice view of the Lake, although I guess they don't qualify as "waterfront". One surprise for us: our friends who arranged for us to camp there told us "It's 16 miles off I-5 on Highway 66." What they didn't tell us that it is a steep winding road that ascends about 4000 or more feet; it might be a challenge for big rigs. Be sure you are all fueled up before you start the drive, as there are no gas stations along the way. We were told there is a gas station about 6 miles past the camp site, but the gas is very expensive.

We stayed at Silver Falls July 22-23; we didn't have a reservation and the first night they put us in site B-12, which is their "overflow site". It was very nice and spacious, but gets the afternoon sun. The next day we moved to B-25, which has to be the best site; plenty of shade and lots of privacy. All the sites in the B loop have water and electric hookup; in the A loop most of the sites are for tent camping, but we saw a number of sites with partial hookups. There are large clean bathrooms in the park and the showers are nice and hot and free. There are numerous hiking trails through out the park with spectacular views of waterfalls (there are 10 of them to see if you're up to a long hike). There are a number of places along the trails where you can go swimming. There are Ranger activities, a play area with a jungle Jim, bicycle trails. The have a small souvenir shop in the park (a considerable walk from the camp site), but other than a few bare necessities, no food or anything else. There is a small general store about 7 miles from the camp. The dump station is well marked and about a mile from the camp site; we had no problem finding it. We found the camp site to be very quiet, clean and well maintained; we'd stay there again.

The RV campsite is across the road from the Lewis and Clark State Park, right next to Highway 12. There are 8 sites; some of the sites are slightly back from the road, but it's hard to get away from the constant noise of passing cars and trucks. If most of the sites are taken, backing in a trailer (especially a long one) could be a challenge, as there isn't too much room to maneuver. There's a camp host but they are not very helpful. The camp sites in the main part of the park have no hookups and are much more pleasant and quiet; they cost $19.00/ night. Unless having a sewer hookup is really important, I wouldn't recommend their full hookup site.

We stayed here on Orcas Island July 16-20; we had one of the three sites that have a view of the ocean (with beautiful sunsets). These are large sites with pull through capability, tables and fire pits. They don't have much shade, but you're right on the ocean and there is plenty of cool breeze. The other 8 sites don't have the spectacular view but have some shade and are back in, not pull through. The staff at West Beach resort are very friendly and helpful. There are numerous things to do there: 5 days of the week they have various craft projects for the kids; there is a sand volley ball set up, tether ball, rope swings, and lots of opportunities for the person who wants to fish or go crabbing. They have a nightly campfire at the beach and a hot tub. There are also numerous whale watching companies in the area. Nearby is Friday Harbor on San Juan Island; we went there for the day but found it touristy and commercial but others might enjoy it. Moran State Park is on Orcas Island and we went there for a day; lots of hiking trails and a drive up to the top of Constitution Mountain. From the top of the mountain you can see all the way to Mt. Rainier on a clear day. A few things to be aware of: the toll for the ferry from Anacortes (the port for the ferries that go to the islands) can be expensive. They charge by the overall length of your vehicle and rig as well as number of passengers. We had our SUV and a 16' trailer; it came to nearly $200. Longer rigs could cost even more. Once you're on the island, travel between the other islands is free. You can even make it over to Sydney, BC on Vancouver Island and go from there down to Victoria, but be sure to bring your passport (this ferry ride isn't free). The second thing is there is no dump site at West Beach Resort; they told s the only dump site on the island is at Moran State Park, which is about a 30 minute drive. What they didn't tell us is that there is a free dump site in Anacortes at 4th and T street, so if you can wait to drain your tanks when you leave the island, you can save yourself a lot of time and trouble. We had a great time at this place and would highly recommend it.

We stayed in this park for one night on very short notice. We were fortunate and got a site with electric and water hookup. We found it very quiet, pleasant and enjoyable. It is on the Sacramento delta and the area is known for being windy. Be forewarned; awnings and other external equipment will be put to the test. There is no store on the site, but the town of Rio Vista is just 3 miles to the north and has supermarkets with just about everything you could need. They do have boat launching ramps and the fishing on the delta seems pretty good. We'd camp here again.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Surprised and delighted that they would supply a fire pit and wood for a minimal cost. Breakfast for $4 a person on Saturday that included pancakes (all you could eat), sausage, eggs, juice and coffee. Wow! A very quiet and welcoming place. I'd stay again. Close to Santa Cruz, Roaring Camp Railroad, Henry Cowell State Park. Great for everyone.
