Oh my gosh! I almost don't want to tell anyone about this park, yet I want to make sure it gets the kudos it deserves. We spent the prior week in and around Yellowstone. This was a stop for us on the way back home to WA. The staff were wonderful, the sites were amazing (yet we saw some which would be icky locations, so choose your site wisely), and the park is so much fun! While there's no sewer hookup - there's a dump station in the park. The showers were complimentary (amazing for a state park) and VERY clean. You don't realize how big this park is until you get there. We only stayed a couple nights, but are already planning our return next summer - except we're going to stay a week next time! There is so much to do!!
Came here after a couple nights at Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone. We called this the "Posh" RV resort at the average rigs pulling in were the $250K motorhomes pulling Hummers as toads. There were many tents, 5th wheels and trailers as well, but it was more "upscale." The staff was very friendly, facilities were very clean, and the fresh coffee in the main building was a nice touch. We backed up to the National Forest and had some great mountain bike rides. Cable worked well, and the WiFi worked well. We paid the $4 for a days' worth of access. I didn't really feel like the kids could go out and play - maybe that was just my impression. The staff is constantly patrolling the area, so we were always afraid we were doing something wrong. It's a lovely RV Park, and based on what we saw of the RV parks in West Yellowstone, this one is the ONLY one we would stay at.
All previous reviews are accurate. The location is excellent. The sites are close together, but not as bad as they could be. While we had trailers on either side of us, we weren't looking into their windows or anything. Backing in was tricky, but with some patience we got in there. It was nice that they had space next to the trailer at our site designated for our truck. We had a tree outside our door, so we couldn't put out the awning, but we did see others who could put theirs out. We had full hookups, we rode bikes with the kids, went to ranger presentations, and just plain had fun. To be right there in the park was nice - and we preferred the east side of the park to the west. The staff was friendly, and we didn't use the showers as with full hookups we used ours. Hubby says they were OK. When we go back to Yellowstone, we'd definitely consider staying here again.
We were here in February last year and had a great time. We still had a great time this year, but downgraded the rating for a couple reasons. First, the pool has been made available to the public, so even on a day when the campground isn't busy, the pool may be (it was for us). This was VERY disappointing as Astoria has a public pool already. If we wanted busy we'd go there. Second, there were some other campers up partying late at night, and nothing was done to quiet them down. The bathrooms, while still clean, weren't as sparkley clean as last year. I see this KOA didn't get the president's award this past year, and these couple of details may have made the difference. Despite these couple of things, the WiFi worked great, and it's a great location. I don't think we'll be back next year as we didn't LOVE it like we did last time.
A very nice park with great people. We were headed up 101 with no place to go, and this park was an oasis! This is different camping than we were used to - no fire pits, few picnic tables, and very close together. The spaces are tight - you won't get your awning out, and you might not be able to back in. This was a little disappointing considering you're on 85 acres. It's a fisherman's paradise. Docks, boat trailer parking, cleaning stations, bait, you name it. They had an ice cream social going on, and a movie in the big barn. I can't say enough for the great staff! The cable was out - they were working on it when we were there. It's obvious the new owners are doing A LOT to improve this park. I would be interested in seeing it next year! Quiet location, nice people, lots to do, VERY family friendly. We only stayed one night, but it was a great place.
If you have a smaller rig - book a site in the trees! Even though they only had electrical/water hookups it was completely worth it for the location. We left a little early, and in hindsight we should have stayed. The staff was friendly, there were lots of kids, and there is lots to do. The bathrooms were recently remodeled and they're well-cleaned daily. WiFi worked great as long as you were in range of the antenna. Unfortunately it wasn't available in the trees, but it didn't matter. We'd absolutely stay here again.
This is an incredible park! Close to Crater Lake, very "campground"-ish, and a wonderful staff. There's great biking in the area, and diamond lake is beautiful. I'd have given it a 10 if the WiFi were more consistent, but it was difficult to logon and stay on (and you had to be in designated areas). BUT, you're in a very remote area, and any internet access is better than none. We left a night early, a big mistake on our part. We should have stayed! Bring your bug spray - we had monster bugs that left monster bites! I'd highly recommend this park. It's wonderful!
Wow. This is a great park in the off-season! I can see where it would be crowded and a bit much in the busy times, but it's phenomenal now. The good: Friendly staff, clean and neat grounds, free internet, very clean bathrooms/showers, great indoor pool/spa (also clean), well stocked store, and lots to do at the campground and in the area (bring your bikes!). The "other": The spaces are narrow, and depending on the landscaping, can hinder the awning and/or slides, so park carefully to allow for slides. The deluxe sites are paved, and the others are gravel. But the gravel sites seem pretty level. Overall, this is a great campground with lots to do. Definitely family friendly! We may make this one an annual stop (in the offseason).
The north camp sites are better suited for RV's as they have power and water. I believe all the sites have been upgraded to 50 amp service (our site was anyway). Awesome privacy. Wonderful hiking. Great swimming. Lots of play areas for the kids! Only improvement we'd like is sewer hookup - but it is a State Park. We left this campground to stay at Thousand Trails with some friends. Funny, we kept driving back to this park to swim and play! We would absolutely stay here again. It's wonderful!
Staff was very friendly and easy to work with. Overall very quiet and clean. Don't use the directions from their web site, we were quite lost! However once we got there, it has good access to I-90. Campground desperately needs updating. The office, while clean, was dated. We didn't use/check out the restrooms or laundry area. It's not a fancy place. Not much to look at. Right next to the freeway so prepare for freeway noise. You are in an urban area, so don't expect much for atmosphere. There is a play structure for the kids. We didn't ever go to the club house to see what's there. There were a lot of long-term rigs there. You have to pull through them on the way to the office. Cable was OK. Some stations worked, many didn't or had bad signals. Many of the long-term rigs used satellite. Wireless internet is available for $7/day. Speeds were OK, signal was good. Access was OK. If it was a full campground, it would be very tight maneuvering. We'd stay here again, but will probably try some others in Spokane.
