We stayed here in the "A Circle" and enjoyed our stay. Early in the morning you can hear the owls going crazy. Our site was level, clean, and semi-private. They sell Ice and Firewood in the"B Circle". There are several walking paths that do not allow bicycles and a short walk to the Willamette River. Our rate reflects that our site had water and electricity, but no sewer. Some sites do have sewer, but none were available during our short stay. There is a dump site on the property. We will return here.

Our rate reflects our "Membership" price, so the $3 was for Cable TV. Lots of friendly bunnies here for the Grand Kids to feed, and the park is very Pet Friendly. Our cable reception and internet in #14 was not very good. Most of the time we could get no WiFi signal at all. The pool area need a considerable amount of work and housekeeping. Our site was not level and left us walking up an incline to exit our Travel Trailer. The firewood we bought here for $7 a bundle was not seasoned and nearly boiled when we finally managed to set it on fire. We will return here, but are considering dropping our $300/ year membership to this park.

This is probably one of The Best RV Parks in Oregon. That being said I could only rate it an 8 for three reasons. 1. The TV reception (cable) was terrible, my neighbors had the same issue. 2. The Hot Tub was not working for the entire stay. 3. The WiFi was very poor. Our rate reflects a casino and AAA discount. The last time I stayed here, I felt a 9 was low, but things have changed, maybe they want us to spend more time in the Casino? This is still a very nice park, but it needs improvements to get above an 8 for me. We will camp here again.

This park is way overpriced for what you get, except there is no extra charge for sandblasting your RV from the blowing nearby sand banks. I can't understand how anyone could rate this place a 9 or better unless they never left their RV. The view is nice, but the spots are tight and there is no shade or privacy of any kind.

Our rate reflects our access pass. What a find, this place was a gem! I give it an 8 because of no hook-ups but you could not find a nicer primitive campground than this place. We were tempted to stay in a nearby park where you see your neighbor all day and are glad we came here! Fantastic hiking trails among trees that are over 600 years old. We counted over 300 rings on a nearby downed tree. The spots are large and very private. Many spots back up to the Cispus river. The restrooms are primitive but kept very clean and fresh. Firewood is sold at the park, but you get more for your money buying it at the Randle store on the way in. We will definitely be back. Our RV is 25' long.

We returned to this park after a couple of years and what a difference the site makes! This time we were placed on the side hill backing up to a fence with a home on the other side. The hill was so tight I went into 4WD to back it up the gravel hill. Our rate reflects our Coast to Coast pass. We will likely not give this place a third try. Our RV is 25' long.

We returned to this park after a couple of years and it's still very nice. The hosts were helpful and firewood is sold on-site. Did not see as much wildlife here as we have in the past. 48 hours of our stay the temperature stayed at 40 degrees and rain, which translated to a fresh foot of snow on Mt Howard. We will be back again even though this place stays booked solid. Our RV is 25' long.

We were here over a holiday weekend. There are very few full hook up sites here, and three quarters of the park was closed for the season. Park staff was nowhere to be found over the holiday. The site we had was a pull thru site so we parked backwards and stretched extra sewer line, etc. We parked backwards to have some privacy in this very open site. Overall, the campground was very swampy. I've not seen this much swamp land and canals west of Florida. The showers are pay showers. The beach here is quite a hike from the sites, and serves as some weird roadway so beware of traffic! We will not be returning to this park or recommend it to friends.

The rate reflects our C2C membership. This campground has two communal fire pits near the middle of the park. The restrooms and showers were at the entrance of the park and way too far to walk to from our site near the end. The site was not level and the one next to us had HUGE sink holes in the pad. We backed up to a house as far west as we could be, still the walk to the beach was about a half mile or more. We would not return here or recommend it to friends.

This campground has waterfront sites, but charges a hefty premium for them. We backed into the north sand bank and things went down hill from there. The wind picked up for three days and everyone on the grounds got sand blasted non-stop. Some friends were going to meet us to show us local attractions and the campground would charge them $5.00 every time they entered the park. We suggested they park on the public space to the north and slide down the sand bank, which they did. This fee is exorbitant and they do not budge. We would not return here or recommend it to friends.

The rate reflects my National Park access pass. This is a dry campsite that sits on the Yakima River. The park only had 5 campers in it including the host. We packed into a huge site next to the river and were very pleased. We would definitely stay here again!

The rate reflects the Coast to Coast rate with add-ons for Cable TV, WiFi and electricity! This is a nice member only park that has an interesting put-put course (free) and pools. The park is quiet, clean and well maintained. You may want to use your GPS to find it. We would return here.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. The sites are definitely tight, and a sprinkler comes on every morning to soak anything you left out. The airport, especially fighter jets are very loud since this place is directly under the flight path. The sites have no tables of any kind and the pet area is across the street from the park, under a neighbors tree (glad we have no pets). The bathrooms were clean but musty and hot with no air or windows. The laundry was a high point and was clean. We were here 6 nights, and would likely return as choices in this area are very limited.

The Pros: Clean restrooms and showers, Good cable TV, Decent WiFi and a nice Friday evening (byob) Happy Hour. The Cons: TIGHT sites, Limited, to no views and challenging beach access (across a busy Hwy. and down 77 stairs. When we pulled our 24' truck camper in and backed in our site to a 23' tall concrete block wall. Three dumpsters were about 12' off our right side. Each site is equipped with HALF of a picnic table (they could do better). The large staff was friendly with only one exception. We stayed here for the proximity of friends that were in a nearby hotel, and we would again if in the same situation. But for this price, we could, and would, normally try some other options in this area.

This rate reflects a tent site. They have much more privacy than the old style RV sites. This is always a favorite and the maintenance is top notch. New gravel has been spread, but they may have gone a little overboard with the trimming, allowing more outside light and less privacy. The showers cost .50 for four minutes.

The rates here are $30 Pull Through and $25 Back in with full hook-ups. We actually chose to pay $20 for a dry camping site with lots of privacy (unlike the RV spots). There are only three sites that I would consider "ocean front", they are "Y1-Y3" next to the coast guard tower. The restrooms near that location are not fit to use. This park does accept year round reservations and depending who is at the front gate, they may give you a list of available sites or simply assign you one that can be changed based on availability. I have stayed at this park off and on for thirty years and there have been a lot of changes, not all for the best. It remains one of our favorite destinations, but regarding my rating of 7, there is no way considering all of the parks we have stayed in that I could ever give a higher rate here. We will definitely return.

This place was level and had electricity, so they get a 5. The people are not friendly, the bathrooms are smokin' hot, and the laundry is worse. There is a nice looking pool, but it seems someone forgot to ad water to it. They tried to talk us into an electric only site and to use their sewer dump but we declined in lieu of full hook-ups. This place is definitely overpriced. We saw one fellow pull in a pull through site with his 35' fifth wheel and was hanging out several feet on both ends. There is nothing within walking distance, we would not stay here again.

This was a very nice little park. The sites were level, the bathrooms new, a stream at our back door, and a nice little brewpub restaurant a few steps away. The only weak spots were that the sites are pretty close together and the Internet is very weak (not usable for us). The people were friendly, the town was kind of cool and it seemed like the 4-wheelers really like this site. I cant figure out why this site says its 5 or 6 miles from Wallace, as it's right in the town. Although it officially has no "shade" this place is so deep in the canyon that the direct sunlight isn't a problem for long. We would definitely return to this one.

A "7" is the best I could give for dry camp boondocking. This place has a great location next to Jackson Lake. There is a restaurant, store, boat rentals and a hotel within easy walking distance. We rented a boat and loved it for the different perspective photos of the Tetons. The restaurant was good and reasonable. Their nacho appetizer ($8) would feed four! In three of four the loops here you can run a generator from 8-8. As stated in earlier reviews this place can be full by 11 AM easy. The place is tight for anyone pulling anything larger than a tent trailer. Even though the rate is $22 we paid $11 with our access pass. We would stay here again!

This was a good park with a perfectly level (gravel) site. It could use some serious grounds work but the bathrooms were some of the nicest I've seen, with private showers which would have earned an "8" except for the fact that they are pay showers. We thought we left the pay showers behind in Canada but here you will pay .50 cents for 5 minutes, so have some quarters with you. What a shame considering each shower has a private room with changing area, some of the best and nicest I've seen. The last park I stayed in that had these earned a "10" but they were not pay and the grounds equaled the showers, which is not the case here. The staff is kind of strange but hey, welcome to Wyoming. Beats the heck out of the WalMart lot!

We stayed here on July 4th and were not prepared for the amazing fireworks display we witnessed! I would HIGHLY recommend this place on any July 4th, You won't believe it! OK, now for the park. The site was level and the spacing was normal. The restrooms were clean but the showers were inexcusably ridiculous. If you take a shower here, you will disrobe, etc. in the main part of the restroom since there is just a small stall with no private outer area. The Wi-Fi was not reliable. We tried three different signals but no reliable signal, and we were close to the office with what appeared to be a strong signal. We would return here for any July 4th but never for a shower.

This was an old KOA that is better than the KOAs I've been in. They are stepping it up. The Wi-Fi works great, the sites were spaced well and level. The staff was VERY nice! We read the review here and thought we had to try this place. The pizza was great and cheap ($9.95) with 4 toppings. There is also a storm shelter here. The restrooms are very clean but the showers are not private. You can get 2 TV channels here. My "8" is probably better than the 10s some people here give from what I've experienced, but I try to be consistent on my ratings.

This is a very nice and secure park. The site we were in was close to level, we used 2 (1") blocks in the rear to make it right. There is no Wi-Fi and the bathrooms were hot, tiny and not clean. The staff was very friendly and there are code activated gates to keep the curious out. We were here 3 nights. We would probably return here for a short stay and would not use the bathrooms

The staff was not too helpful. I filled my propane here and the fellow told me not to tell the woman we did 2 bottles to waive an extra charge (it took a pound). He said tell her, "You took the minimum." The minimum charge is $18. The spots here were very tight and small. My little 24 ft truck camper filled our site. The bathrooms were clean but too small and limited for the number of sites. Located next to the pool, they seem to be used as changing rooms in addition to restrooms, only 2 stalls. We probably would not return here.

This is a nice RV Park with a big pool and activity area. The hosts were knowledgeable. The sites were easy to maneuver and level. There is NO Wi-Fi here. The showers and bathrooms were clean but very dated and VERY HOT. It was 100 degrees here and there was not even a fan in the restrooms. The showers were tiny and lacked privacy. When we left, we could not find a host to inform them that one of the toilets was leaking through the bottom seal. We would return here, if it was a cool day. I feel my 7 may be high due to no Wi-Fi and the restrooms, but this is a nice park.

To start, you pull into a non-level dirt site. You figure out that you have to turn the vehicle around because you are sharing the hook-up post with FOUR sites. You get hooked up, sewage on wrong side since you pulled in forward. Now you try the internet. Great strong signal, then after 10 minutes of just checking e-mail the speed goes from 52 mbps to 11 and everything stops. Don't even think about Facebook, let alone a YouTube video. This happened every day we were here! So you say lets try the putt -putt golf. you shell out the $4 for 9 holes and the course is great with a fountain in show room condition, and you can't help but wonder, where was the person who did this when it came to the sites and the lame hook-ups. The next morning you go to take a shower in the huge bathroom (5 urinals, 9 stalls, 5 showers, 10 sinks and no towel dispenser with ONE 20 yr old dryer). You've noticed the bathrooms are clean and the people spend at least an hour a day cleaning them, so you are surprised by the hair on the floor and windowsill and the spiders and bugs in the shower. You decide that as much as you don't care for the chain parks, next time you may stay down the street at one of the other 2 parks, especially for this price.

The bathrooms were so far away, we would never use them. The sites were the ones where there is one pole that feeds sites on both sides, so you need a long cord and hose to hook up on the wrong side. What this park has going for it is the proximity to downtown Toronto. Beware, we thought the bus route went right by here, but we learned that the bus doesn't stop here. We were told to go to the nearest GO station for the train, and since we only have a truck camper (24" Long) we could do that. Otherwise, it's so much for the location. We will try elsewhere next time.

A lot has changed since the review I read before coming here. Number one: they had a flood last year that covered the entire park with ten feet of water. That being said, they are rebuilding. We paid $35 cash for a spot with no septic, just water and 30 amp power. Even though this park sits right on the banks of the river, all of those spots are taken by full-timers parked every which way. Bottom line, the park was overpriced and we will not be returning! The showers aren't completed yet and they plan to charge when they are.

We paid $40.50 here with a 10% AAA discount. The people at check in were nice and the sites were level. Filled my propane while I was here on site. The bathrooms were tiny and cramped, but they were private. There was maybe 10 inches from the door to the shower and the toilet was crammed in there: very tight. This place was converting to KOA which means they probably no longer give a discount. We stayed here for the location close to I-95 for a one nighter. Not sure if we would return here due to the high price for what you get.

We paid $20 here with our PA discount. The restrooms were very far about 6 blocks from our site (#1) and the restroom is perched on a steep little hill with a inadequate walkway. The front desk folks were nice and did not squabble about the PA discount as I've read. They don't mind if you wash your rig, so we washed ours. I agree that there are 5 good sites here in front. The Wi-Fi was good and the site was level. There are many more full-time residents here than travelers, and it shows in many ways. There was another waterfront RV park down the road that I would try before I'd come back here.

We paid $49 here for a first row premium spot. The restrooms were to far up the hill to try to use from our site. and the Wi-Fi barely made the distance. For $49 we basically got a really nice view in a wide open camping area where there is no privacy, shade etc. The drive up and over the hill here was memorable, luckily my diesel has power to spare and good brakes for the down side. We would probably not stay here again.

If there was sewer, water or wi-fi this would have gotten an "8". The restrooms (in addition to a few out houses) were clean and the showers were modern with wheelchair accessibility. The walk across the street to the beach is nice, but we were in spot #2; it would have been a different story if we were in one of the many far away spots. There is a nice restaurant at the beach open until 7pm each day. The site was nice and private and mostly level. The power was 30amp. I would not want to attempt to pull a big rig through here. We would return here.

With the discount we paid $29.61 for a spot about a mile from the restrooms with lots of kids running around. We don't mind the kids, it looked like it must be a local thing here for families to pair up with their friends, neighbors and all the kids and go hang out for the weekend. Since everyone is up late, morning until 11 or so are quiet. There is NO Wi-Fi here and the swimming was next to their only restroom. In no way was this adequate. We would probably not return here. I can not imagine how this place ever got a 10?

This place COULD be so nice: but it is not! The bathrooms have a card that is signed each day by someone that allegedly cleans them, this is a hoax. One shower did not even have a curtain, and one toilet had the same grunge (bad stuff) in the bowl all three days we were here. If you consider taking a shower, wear shoes, the floor is disgusting! The check in was nice, and the site was great and very private. This is also one of the first places I have been that does NOT have a water hose at the dump station. It is a shame to see such a beautiful park with so much potential in this condition. Not sure who dropped the ball.

This was a nice campground. The sites were a little close but no real issues. It is the location here being close to Philadelphia that brought us here. The restrooms were large but not private which is a personal thing for me to consider a ten. The site was easy to access and level. The swimming pool was closed, if it had been open I would have awarded this place with an "8". The Wi-Fi was working well, and after all of those toll roads, we did not think $40.50 was unreasonable considering the location. PS. They also have powered batting cages that looked cool, no sure if they worked.

It was a stretch to give this one a "5" and here's why. The sites are anything but level, and there is virtually no privacy. It was scary to see how some of the travel trailers were leveled and blocked up. I can't understand why someone doesn't rent a bobcat to fix this. Other than that the sites were gravel and wide open. There is nothing close here and not much available in the office. The office people were young and friendly. We will not be back to this one.

This is a very nice place! First of all the staff is very nice and helpful. They have a shuttle that takes you into historic Charleston (for $10) and a little store that sells everything from firewood to ice cream. The site we were in needed to have the fire ring moved or the tree cut back, and hopefully they will address that before the tree burns down. On the negatives, the sites were grass and the restrooms are nice and clean but not private. Watch your top getting to this place (low trees everywhere).

This is a very open large park. The site I had was on the grass and not level, for $49 I expect better. They have propane, and pick up the trash at your site. I would stay here again only if I was in a pinch.

The road into the sites needs to be filled or plowed due to the deep potholes. There are many low hanging trees to watch out for. The staff is knowledgeable but was not particularly helpful. The beach access is across the street and it was very nice with boardwalks, trails, bicycle paths and restrooms.

The rate reflects a Good Sam Discount. I have only given two parks a 10 and they both had private restrooms and showers. This place has nice clean showers and bathrooms. The sites were level and the internet was strong. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the park has a serene setting next to a river. The pool does not open until May. We would stay here again.

I gave this a 7 due to the fact that there are no sewer hook ups and the bathrooms are clean but old and typical of state campgrounds and parks. The sites were level and private. Each site has a nice patio and fire ring. We had no issues with low hanging trees and we are 14 feet high. The people that run the place are nice. This is about a 15 to 20 minute drive from the University area of Tuscaloosa. We would stay here again.

We stayed her to attend meetings. The slabs are very close together and many are broken and very uneven. Electricity worked, but was tripped when we arrived - had to find the box to reset. We were also told to turn off our AC when we used the microwave so we wouldn't trip the circuit. The bathrooms did not have showers and were not clean and friendly. The floor was always wet and the community area was not lighted at night. There is no extra parking for a vehicle once a trailor is backed into the spot. You just have to pull across your spot - sometimes blocking the area next to you. This could be a much better place if time were taken to improve the sites and make the facilities clean and attractive. There were picnic tables set up in the community site, but things were always wet - instructions were up to wash everything down after use, so it was always wet.

The only reason I could not give this park a 10 was because the bathrooms and showers are old and not private. If this place had the restrooms and showers we have seen in Canyonville, OR or Tucson, AZ they would easily have a ten. The park is located on a bus line which makes travel to Riverwalk or mission San Jose easy for $1.10. There is a Mexican restaurant across the street. The $36 rate included our Good Sam discount. We would definitely return here.

Considering the reviews, we weren't sure what to expect. We found a quaint little park in this dust bowl of a town. The bathrooms were old and dated but clean. The best part of this park was the on-site cafe. Considering there is not much to pick from in Van Horn, this seems like the best. In a similar situation, we would stay here again.

This place was amazing. I swore I would never give a "ten" then I stayed here. The bathrooms are private, tiled and spotless. The laundry rooms are huge efficient, well lit and spotless. The park security has a continuous wall and a secured gate, no one that doesn't belong here will be here. The palm tree lined streets are great and there is a large presence of full-timers and snowbirds. There are activities like bingo that all are invited to. I would definitely return here, if and when I travel through Tucson.

The bathrooms were dated but clean, unfortunately there was no soap and no towels or blower to dry with. We enjoyed the site and it gave us reasonable privacy (for a pull through). The location is great, and we enjoyed some great walks. We would stay here again.

The only positive aspect of this park is the location. I have had more privacy and better sites at Walmart! We parked a Truck Camper and at only 24' we still had a hard time backing in, as the sites are so close to each other. To add injury to insult, when we dumped our tanks we learned that the septic was plugged. The "Camp host" was no where to be found, so we finally flagged someone down in a state truck so they could cordon off the mess and fix the problem. We cleaned to the best of our ability, but since the bathrooms here were awful we used the toilet more than normal, what a mess. We will never return here.

The sites are not level and uneven. The restrooms and showers are cold and need up-dating. The sites are tiny and the amenities are missing, especially for this price. We stopped at Clear Lake State Park next door, and the bathrooms were great, unfortunately the septic sites were closed, so here we are. They gave us one key for the bathroom which makes it difficult for my husband and I to use the facilities at the same time. A little work with a bobcat on the sites and some much needed maintenance could make this a nice park. The people are nice but only there 5 hrs a day.

This is a great park with lots of amenities. They offer 24 hour shuttle to the casino and free cable TV and internet. This is a new park and is the nicest park I have been in. If you sign up for the free casino gambling club you will get an additional discount, unfortunately we had to pull out before the office opened and did not receive ours. The bathrooms and showers are private clean and heated. There is a play area for the kids and lots of things to do here.

The view is nice from about six sites here, but none of the view sites have septic (except the 2 park hosts), so plan on using the dump if you stay for a few days. About one third of the campground was closed during our visit. The bathrooms and showers need heat. Bring your firewood with you as they charge $5.00 for 4 small sticks of wood. They have about 76 cable channels but offer no guide to figure out what they all are. Nice play area for children and the park was quiet and the spots seem to offer some privacy.

We arrived and setup at night, when we woke up we could see the ocean under the picturesque bridge from our truck camper. What a great surprise! very nice campground. The bathrooms could use heat, being March, the restrooms were as frosty as the ground, this is why I gave an 8. I will definitely return.

The bathrooms were terrible, old and outdated. No way I would shower here, just walking in made you feel dirty. The park in general didn't appear to have been up-dated in MANY years. The people were nice, but definitely not worth the money. No Cable TV and they charge you for the internet. There is a gigantic pile of rubbish and a disassembled water park stored on one side of the grounds which would be a great opportunity for children to wander in and hurt themselves. Did i tell you about the disgusting bathrooms? The spots were level, and the park was quiet.
