Municipal park. The site configuration is somewhat awkward with the first four sites along a narrow paved strip. If someone was in sites #1 and #3, you would have to parallel park your RV to get into site #2. When I camped there it was empty so easy to get in and out. Sites #5 - #8 are along the creek and right beside the park loop road so you will have traffic noise and they aren't very level. But it was a pleasant stop with a cow pasture for neighbors. And if you don't like this spot the 8th and Bridge RV park is right up the hill. To get there from US84 take 7th Street south which becomes the park entry road. You have to maneuver around the county courthouse at 7th and US84. No manned or self-pay station at the park. You pay at the Police Station on North 8th Avenue, a block north of US 84. Sign at park says $20.00 but they only charged me $15.00.

Wonderful park as described by others. Nice laundry facility and the free Wi-Fi is a nice feature. You can tell that it can be buggy and hot here. The campground is some distance south of the lake, so no lake views from the sites. There are four huge pull-through sites, the others are back-ins and there is very generous spacing between the sites. Electric and water hook-ups are poorly placed in some sites. I am giving the park a less than stellar rating because the posted rate was $18.00 for my site. As a walk-in, without a reservation, they charged me the $6.00 Reserve America Fee despite not having a reservation. I have volunteered in several parks that use Reserve America and have never imposed a national reservation fee on a walk-up camper.

Rate reflects Good Sam Discount. Stayed here one night after picking up my new motorhome at a nearby RV dealership. Lots of permanent residents but the park appears clean, neat and had no noise problems. Dealing with a new rig and tow vehicle, I got outstanding assistance from the couple that manage the park. Very friendly and helpful people. Not a resort, but a good overnight stop if you are in the area. I'd strongly suggest calling ahead as they filled up on a Wednesday night.

It was a bit difficult to find the campsites in this park. Follow the signs for the Arena and you'll get there. The park also offers primitive camping for $10.00 per night. I saw what appeared to be these sites near the day use park and none looked capable of handling even a pop-up camper. There are seven total sites with full hook-ups, one occupied by the campground host. These are gravel, perpendicular back-ins and a bit tough to get in. But once in you'll find a beautiful smooth concrete patio with picnic tables and a great view. Despite what is noted in earlier reviews, each of these sites has 20, 30 and 50amp electric service, water and sewer. The sites are adjacent to a rodeo arena and the host said he could hook up "one or two" units at the arena with 20amp service and water. I examined this and you would need very long utility cords and hoses and the sites would be unlevel. There are no restrooms at the campground but while I was there the arena restrooms were open and clean. No showers. The host said that the hook-up sites fill up with park volunteers for the winter season from October until around May. I arrived to find only two sites available. Also note that the park is very close to Phoenix International Raceway.

We spent four days here and really enjoyed our stay. Very remote feeling but you are less than 3 miles from the University and town. The shower, bath and laundry facilities are clean and functioning but old and worn. Utilities at the sites we saw were installed and working properly. Most of the sites require some leveling of your rig. Wi-Fi is free at the store/office along with very good and very cheap coffee! The staff were very friendly and helpful and escort you to your site. I would like to get in a "plug" for the Flagstaff RV Service Center near the mall north of town. We had a water line problem and these folks helped us out, not even charging for some small parts we needed.

It is tough to give a low score to such a beautiful location but, as mentioned before, the hook-up sites, #'s 1-14 are incredibly tight and the middle ones are also very uneven. Try to get sites 1-3 or 12-14 as the ones on the ends seemed to be more level. If you are willing to dry camp, there are outstanding non-hook-up sites in this park.

This is not much more than a gravel lot with hook-ups. Spaces are pull through but tight and would be extremely difficult to maneuver if it filled up. All that being said the couple that manage the place were wonderful, helped us get in our space after a long, tiring day. As an overnight stop this was a perfect, no-thrills place to be. The manager did tell us that they expect to be very busy with longer term residents in the future as construction workers for a pipeline will be coming into the area soon.

We found this campground the same as described by others and have no complaints. It is a short walk to the hotel and casino. Took our computer to the hotel and used the free Wi-Fi there. Received discount coupons that got us a nice full breakfast for $5.00 each. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Park as described in other reviews, well maintained, lush grass, level sites. Nice nine hole golf course nearby and a lengthy paved bike trail all the way to the Chief Joseph Dam. If you bring your bikes be sure to have tire liners and/or slime tubes as goatheads are plentiful even on the pavement and they will flatten a tire. This is a popular campground for people fishing. Many of the sites have no utilities. My lower rating is because Washington State Parks desperately needs to put in a reservation system here. I arrived on a Monday morning in May and claimed the next to last site with electric and water. The entire stay I was constantly asked by people "are you leaving?" and was dogged the morning I began to break camp with a motorhome blocking the campground road in order to claim my site. Not the park's fault, but the waiting people were almost hostile when they didn't think I was getting out fast enough. It was 10 AM and checkout is at 1 PM! If this place is full the campground at the boat ramps in Bridgeport is very nice but not much shade.

Most of the good sites in this park have no utilities at all. There is a newer loop with very modern hookups but no shade. We camped in a small row of utility sites in the older, shady section. Utility sites here were all gravel, uneven and our site (the only one left to reserve) was downhill from the sewer hook up. It was number 36, try to avoid that one. Beautiful area, great, inexpensive nine hole golf course adjacent. We will return but would opt for the resort campground next door, Sun Lakes Resort.
