Nice ocean side state park, meets the high standards of the OR state parks. Asphalt sites are reasonably level. No sewer and just two lanes at the dump station at the entrance. Walk to small town Manzanita for basic services, or back to highway 101 to reach more. Watch out for low hanging scrub pines at sites. I did not see sites for big rigs, considering the narrow loop roads and trees all about. Very busy in the summer: reservations are a must.

Rate includes local tax. Stayed four nights in backin site to golf course. Green grounds, green trees, nice view, creek. Good utilities, with pole between two sites for trailer or motorhome. Very clean. Reasonably quiet, good location to Astoria and Warrenton. Very clean grounds. Gravel sites acceptable and mostly level. Wide street makes easy backin.

This is dry camping at its finest. There were only a dozen people there at any one time during our five days. It is quiet, and beautiful. It is a short walk to the beach. It is two miles to the Castle, which is worth the trip by itself. There is a good dump station, though it has only two lanes for that large facility. There are water spigots at every few sites.

It features nice sites, clean with lots of greenery. There are turkeys roaming through the sites. The larger sites are in the last loop at the end of the road. We found the old style sewer connection too far back to use it. I drove into a pull through upon departure for the sewer, and almost scraped my 35' trailer on the electric post. It is a good location between SLO and Morro Bay.

Beautiful wooded provincial park overlooking the Fraser Canyon. Long sites, tho not so level as it sits on a mountainside. Dry camping, tho water taps in the park. Sanitary dump listed, tho we didn't try it and don't really know if they have one.

Nice setting next to a lake, though it was too cold in August to swim. Pull through sites have small trees between them, with average width. Narrow driveway for exit. Power pole is kind of strange though. 50amp service with a 30 amp dogbone secured to it by a chain. Can't use direct 50amp power. Only through the 30 amp dogbone. Good WiFi and water pressure. Was VERY CLOSE to the highway.

Decent sites, though the central utilities means paying attention to the side you pull into. Plus it has excellent WiFi service. The septic station near the center of the park, smelled up the area, including our site. Smelled even when people were not dumping. Worse when they were. We didn't spend any time outside. We will probably return to the park in a few weeks, but will certainly stay away from that area.

Nice dry quiet campground 15 miles into the park. We preferred this to Riley, due to the noise from the park entrance. Moose and grizzly bears and other wildlife passed through the CG. Has a good view of Mt. Denali when it occasionally emerges. Be careful of the large pull through sites. The curve of the site and the 4x4 timbers along the edges can fool you. I should have backed into mine, rather than pulling in. Wound up moving the 4x4 just to park. (Shhh!) Rate based on Golden Age pass.

Wooded sites with lots of room between them. Varying lengths on sites. Divided into A sites for long rigs, and B sites for shorter ones. Good water and septic dump. Only negative was the noise from road construction and helicopters one and two miles away at the entrance. So we moved to Savage CG afterward. Then there is Denali: fabulous. Get there early with a big rig, or maybe you suffer!

Short, very narrow sites. Unattractive. I heard that the WiFi didn't work well. $40.50/night ain't worth it, but in keeping with AK prices. Sadly other parks in Anchorage looked worse. "Port in a storm." We stayed one night, filled our larder at Freds and Costco, then moved on. Try Eagle River SRA 13 miles north, tho dry camping. Or dry camp at Fred Meyers, a few miles east of this park.

Small park one block from the bay. Owners on site are very friendly and helpful. They even have an espresso stand on site! Plus the Burger Bus one block over for great hamburgers. We chose this park after reading mediocre reviews of nearby Beluga Park. Too true. (Those spaces are much too close together. If you don't rent a higher price view lot, you are closed in). Rate here is based on $200/week, then add $12 tax.

Same as others' experience. We dry camped for five nights at the Itiderod park at the southern end of the town, with an unrestricted view of the bay and mountains. The most fabulous view in our three years of FTing. $15/night, max two weeks. $5 to dump plus good city water. Wide backin spaces, long enough for our 35' trailer. Very nice town. Lots of wildlife activities. Would have been a 10 with utilities. But we wouldn't trade the view, and our little 10 space park was quieter than the larger ones further north.

We stayed in the upper part of the park without sewer, because the lower part is too crowded and near the road. Nice sites up here, mostly back in's. Some of the hookups were on wrong side of the RV, but with no sewer, this doesn't really matter. Free Wi-Fi was OK during the day, but slow in the evening. Owner very nice. Great free showers. They sell the cheapest diesel I could find in Whitehorse. Even a mechanic available to change your oil, or you can use the pad to change your own for $5. RV wash for $1 for 3 minutes (I think). Coin operated dog wash too, with commercial tub. We will come back on our return from AK.

Beautiful setting, with favored sites backing up to the lake. No services at the site. Water spigots on the road. Despite the description on the park web page, NO SANI-DUMP (Dump station). They closed it two years ago, but have not updated the description. Closest dump north is in MacKenzie at the municipal park, where you can stay at a dry site free for up to three days.

Nothing special except you have finally reached the Alaska Highway. We stayed two nights. People coming and going. Sites not level, access roads a bit narrow so people challenged to back in. Not much road noise. I agree that they need more than 4 washers and 4 dryers for a park this size, particularly since they open at 8.30am and close at 9pm. Would stay there again for a break.

Nice country setting, long pull through space, though not very wide. Former KOA. Quiet, entrance on the road, but back a little ways.

Nice campground with woods about. Large pull through sites. Friendly owner. Good utilities. Quiet considering the highway runs next to it. Restaurant and laundry next door.

Basic campground, old place but has 50 amp service and a nice unobstructed view of the mountains from the back row for overnighters. Just 100 miles from Death Valley NP, so we stayed coming and going. Small but clean, inexpensive laundry. Only one mile from SR 395 and closer to SR14. Also fuel stations nearby with good price on diesel. Nearby town of Ridgecrest, towards Death Valley, has nice Albertson grocery store with RV size parking along side. We paid $12.50 Passport America. Particularly good rate for CA.

Big sites, good utilities and Wi-Fi. This is typical desert camping with easy access to the highway. There's some truck noise from SR85, but hopefully that will die down at night. Worth a stop on the way to or from. Nearby Holt's Truckstop RV Park, which was full. This place is nicer, although it's twice the price.

Similar experience to other two negative reviews. Narrow streets made parking my 35' fifth wheel a real challenge. Park model sewer connection in the back middle meant I did not hook up my sewer. PICK UP YOUR DOG WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THE PARK outside the limited “dog sites.” No dog run in the park, which was not explained properly to us. It’s a park model park renting unoccupied sites to unsuspecting RVers. Staff were friendly though, as well as the residents.

Nice setting on a lake: but with a busy, truck-filled highway on the other side, and sound carrying well across the water, only the hearing impaired will enjoy a drink on the lakeside deck. Has gravel sites with trees overhead, no shrubs between sites. The sites I saw had one utility pole for two sites, which I did not notice until I parked my trailer, then had to snake my water and electric connections under my trailer. Too far for my TV cable, but there were only four network channels anyway. No problem with the septic connection, because you must dump on the way out. Some full hookup sites listed in the prices, but the clerk didn't offer me one so I guess the few people here occupied those sites. Wi-fi: I could connect to the router, but couldn't use it, even with my directional antenna. Slow Verizon aircard network available. One more thing: $2/day for my small dog. Came to $29 + tax. Not worth the price from my point of view.

Poorly maintained. Pads covered with grass. Animal waste everywhere. No one in the office during our 24 hours in the park. Sewer connection was so far back that I waited till we left, then moved the trailer further back to connect and dump. We left money in an envelope in a simple box at the door. Anyone could have reached in the slot to take it. Not our problem. Long time campers said that the park was either in bankruptcy or nearly so. On a positive note, it's a nice setting, with elk roaming around, fog rolling in from the ocean. Dry Lagoon State Park was a one mile walk, starting just across the road. Sites were wide, though no shrubbery or trees separated the sites. Note that earlier reviewers said they take Passport America. But PA does not list them now. $27 was too high for this park. I would pass this one by in the future.

Very nice county park on the west side of Grants Pass. Looked like a municipal park, with big trees and winding roads. Long pull-throughs, back-ins, tent sites. Staff and host very friendly. Well maintained, particularly since they fund fully through fees. Large dog park, split for big and small dogs. Site 1 pull through is pretty small arc, not for large rigs. Watch heaves in the road from tree roots. As well as the last curve around the bathroom near the exit. We will certainly return.

We stayed one night along the river on a Monday. The campground was almost full, but not busy at all. It was quiet, clean with a nice setting of water and hillside. We like getting away from the main highway (101), though we heard a bit of traffic noise from the adjacent road. The Wi-Fi quit at night for some reason I didn't investigate. Fishing, fishing, fishing, that's the key here. We'd stay here again on Passport America when it's not busy like this.

Virtually the entire park is covered in asphalt, with level sites wide enough to accommodate both unit and car/truck. However, they place the shed couple of feet away from the edge of the line in back. Thus I could not open my opposing rear slide, even tho my first slide hung over the other side of the lot. In other words, not wide enough in back for opposing slides. Clean park with a nice club house. Right on highway 101, thus some road noise day and night.

These are simple sites, but right on the ocean, at sea level, which is all that counts for us. Nice staff at the office in the nearby motel. There is good wifi.

Adequate RV park. Friendly staff, always two people there when I visited. Large store on site. Narrow pads and just grass sites. First site had bad power. Second one had buckled pavement.

Reasonable park near amenities. First electrical hookup did not work. Second site had buckled pad. WI-FI good. Highway noise OK. Friendly staff, two people on the desk each time I visited. Nice store on site.

Beautiful, peaceful setting for this well maintained park. The managers were so accommodating. When was the last time the staff helped you set up your utilities? We spent every evening by the river, watching a wide variety of birds. Also heard and saw birds from our site. Sites were narrow, tho we could open our slides on both sides. Might have felt crowded if we had immediate neighbors. The only negative. Very nice laundromat and good price on propane. Marsing is a nice little town of 800 souls.

Beautiful ocean bay setting for this well maintained park. Very nice and accommodating owner. The bay water is very warm in Sept, no so earlier in the year. The Tokeland Hotel is a five minute walk from the park - great dinner and ambiance, billed as the oldest commercial hotel in WA.

Beautiful state park on the Dossewallips River. Lots of salmon spawn in there in September - a sight to see! Nice small restaurants within walking distance north and south. Good beer to the south, good pie to the north. Reserve in advance for weekends thru the state park web site or 800#, for $7 per reservation.

Nice country park. But very noisy with boat traffic on the lake and nearby river. We stayed there on Labor Day weekend. Would not return on a weekend due to boat noise, as loud as camping near a highway!
