The front terraces are to die for. In a motorhome, the windshield became our big-screen, as the ocean is literally a stone's throw in front of you. The beach access is good; not something for a person with walking limitations worse than using a walking stick as I sometimes do. Nice store, limited but good (had a shower hose failure, and they had a replacement in stock). Sites are level and big enough to park your dinghy beside your rig. But- it's all about the view! We've been here before, and we'll be back.
Basically a parking lot with landscaping, and as with so many of this type of park a very good place to spend the night. Clean, staff was helpful, all hook-ups worked well, dog area small but clean, and level paved sites. With a dinghy (which we don't use) this would be a wonderful base camp.
We were told that they offered "Antenna TV". This means use your own antenna, which I don't have (haven't needed an antenna at full hook-up parks for years). For 38 bucks a night after KOA discount, I expect full hook-ups; this includes TV. The sites are gravel, the hook-ups require some long power/water/sewer leads, and there is no TV. This is a very pretty setting, well maintained, but overpriced compared to what we are accustomed to seeing. FYI: the dog park (our kids favorite feature) is very small. Altogether, not quite worth the price.
Signs all over the park to keep pets off the grass area. Lots of signs referring to "per park rules". Other than that, park is clean, fairly well-maintained, and quiet, considering it's beside a busy highway.
There is a strange feel here; at first I thought it was just our 10 year old Itasca, filthy from coming over Donner Summit in the snow. Then a camper in a 3 axle 42' bus said he felt snubbed as well. The setting is adequate, some park staff were friendly (others not so much) and value for the dollar just wasn't really there. Ocean view is borderline, not a surf view. Barely dog friendly; you can only be in limited areas without being kicked out.
This very old park re-opened in May 2009 as a KOA. It is a work in progress with a long way to go. The private beach is great, but the drive in is evil and the facilities don't justify the high rate at this time. The managers were very nice, and obviously working very hard to whip the park into shape. I have a desire to see what they've done with it in a year or so.
The setting- awesome. The staff was very friendly. The park, on the other hand, is not really a good place for a big rig. First try was so off level my bottom step was 30" off the ground. Second try my front end stuck out into the road (the spot was rated for my length). Third try we went in nose first at an angle, but had no level place to set up the chairs. For $35 a night it wasn't worth it.
Older park set in some really nice-sized pines. Very little noise from Highway 70 at night, and no train noise. The site we were in was a little snug for our over sized rig, but as much my fault as the sites layout (I got in a little sideways since it was nearly dark when I parked). We saw sites both larger and smaller, some level, some not as much. We didn't use the restroom facilities, but the owners were obviously very serious about their maintenance. Nice folks, nice park, and a good setting.
This park is fabulous. We stayed in a pull-through site that was perfectly level, and easily large enough for our rig. Each site has a sand area for a tent (a BIG sand area), a concrete slab with picnic table, and lots of space between sites. The park staff is very friendly, and the degree of maintenance has to be seen to be believed. The only sour note (and one of the rangers warned us) is that the water is VERY hard, and the sprinklers are very enthusiastic. Our site was scheduled to water at noon, so we just went to lunch. There was a brand new unit next to us, though, and the next day you could see the water spots pretty clearly. If you stay here, there is an 11 acre natural area across a foot bridge over the Wenatchee River; it's a fair walk. All in all a very nice park.
This is an older campground, with back-to-back hookups. We've stayed here twice now, both times water/electric only. They have a small but clean store, level sites, and a nice play area for the kids. A word of caution; the Yakima River is deceptively powerful and quite dangerous, so be careful when the water is high.
Hard to find gated community, but a great beach. Mostly long term units, a lot of which are park model units, but there were spaces for over nighties like us. Excellent hook-ups, nice level spot, well maintained park.
We love this place. A short hop to Cannon Beach, walking distance to an awesome seafood restaurant, an all the amenities. Very nice staff, also, very concerned after an issue with some newbies that had an aggressive dog on too long of a lead. They even brought our poor pooch a treat and checked up on us the next day. There was a very nice free Memorial Day barbecue, and just a very pleasant atmosphere on a weekend that was jam packed.
This is an update to a prior review. They are no longer Good Sam or AAA, and their rates have jumped, for some sites nearly double. Still a great park, but on the high side now for pricing. Also, reservations are now done over the internet primarily.
Really a nice layout, with slight terracing of the individual sites that give excellent drainage away from the entry door, but very level in the actual parking area. Everything that we saw was clean and well maintained (didn't use the laundry or restroom/shower facilities). The park is behind a Shell Food-mart (that turned out to be handy-oops), adjacent to the casino and restaurants. The setting is beautiful, surrounded by mountains. Traffic noise at night was minimal, and rather than clumping half a dozen people together in an otherwise empty park, everybody was spaced out. Be aware, though, we had to complete registration at the hotel registration desk as the kiosk was closed. This means either a shuttle ride or a short walk.
A word to those traveling with dogs; there is a $25.00 fine if your pet is seen on the astro-turf or near the plantings other than traveling to/from the door of your RV. So, if you plan on setting up chairs to hang out outside (as we did), or have a meal at the picnic table provided at each site, your pet can't be with you. It has to do with the material under the landscaping and the normal behavior of a dog, we were told. However, the Marina is within easy walking distance, and there is a very nice paved pathway all the way around. All in all, it's a very clean, but sterile, RV park. In a few years when the Legends Mall is open next door it will probably be a little more congested, but for now it was pretty quiet with plenty of open spaces.
Everything worked, but it's a gravel parking lot. We were exhausted, so that helped give it sone appeal, but if you stay when the wind is up, don't leave chairs and such unanchored. The wind can blow quite fiercely.
This was the most expensive place we stayed on this trip, and by far not the nicest. Sites are not level, the 50 amp socket in our power box was broken and had been so for so long that the marker ink off "30 amp only" was almost completely faded out. We were told on the phone, and in the office, that we were getting full hook-ups, but when I asked about TV after we were already in our site, the reply was "Don't you have an antenna?" All in all, not worth the money.
This park is divided into two sides; the north side is much rougher than the south with less or no grass and much smaller, closer spaces. Nice Mini-Mart, but the laundry area is quite tiny, and the bathrooms were not very sanitary at all. It's a short walk to the new casino, or you can call for a shuttle to and from the casino, or to the Metro-Link. A word of caution; they do NOT pick you up at the Metro-Link and bring you back.
Very expensive, no TV channels to speak of. That said- SO green, GREAT shade, very pleasant. Flight path overhead, train tracks and freeway very close, but in spite of that, it's a nice place. Too pricey for what you get, though.
Everything worked, patriotism is flown like a banner, and the store has some cool stuff. No greenery, very little shade. Nice folks in the office. These are back to back buddy sites- not too tight, though.
Atmosphere is very casual. Some areas were communal, obviously multiple families camped as a group so there was a lot of foot traffic and socializing. We popped the breaker at our site 3 times with minimal load, and after the third time I went to the office to report it. The on-site owner was there within 15 minutes to fix the problem; very nice folks. Sites are dirt, some are grass, and a bit on the small side. A HUGE word of caution- save your brakes on the way in, it's about 3-1/2miles of 7% hairpins coming in. But the river was right there, and made for very pleasant music to sleep by.
All in all, a nice park. Very much an "extended family, bring the kids" place, so a little noisy. Sites aren't always very level (I was 5" off the ground with my front tires) but are quite roomy. The operators are polite and helpful, and the store has a few items you might find needful.
Just a flat spot of asphalt with no amenities, but the location made up for it. Jetty Campground was a little noisy because of the boats coming and going, but the beach was awesome for walking. Try for one of the 2 campgrounds further back, especially along the road with an ocean view.
Nice place. The river is accessible for boating and fishing, but the concrete batch plant is just as close. We were there over Thanksgiving weekend, and the plant was quiet. Our neighbors had a parrot that mimicked the backup alarms and other sounds, though, but it was MUCH more entertaining than the real thing. It's obvious that the owners are improving the park facilities, and it is in a convenient location.
Clean, well laid out, with a small store for needed things. The walk to the beach was a stretch for us, and we walk at least two miles a day; you're better off to drive to public parking next to the Tolovana Inn. This is one of the nicest parks we've visited, although not as fancy as some.
Nice park, a little close to Highway 70, but not that noisy. There's a lot of humidity from the nearby sawmill, so most morning are very damp. It's a small park, with very little in the way of recreation, but it's a nice area, and the park is very well maintained. There are some services within walking distance, but most recreation requires travel by vehicle.
Very well maintained park. Owners and staff are pleasant and professional. Paved internal roads, propane fill available, and some sights even have concrete patios. There are freight trains running across the river, but very rarely during the night. Backed up to a meadow on one side with a resident deer herd.
Very nice park, in a very nice location. Public lands access for hiking, and within a 20 minute walk to the store for those of us that are toad-less. The owner/operators are very nice, and park maintenance is kept at a very high level. Sights are limited due to long term campers, but well worth making reservations ahead of time.
