Collier Memorial State Park is just north of Crater Lake. There is a logging museum across the highway from the campground. We didn't have reservations here, but the staff was very nice and we picked out a good spot - there was a lot of room. Like most state parks, it is affordable and there is a good deal of space between sites. Our 29' travel trailer and truck backed into a nice spot with lots of trees and shade. There is a small circular trail network to walk the dogs (or just exercise) and the campground was very quiet. The bathrooms and showers were nice and kept clean. We didn't go to the logging museum, but I hear that's it's a nice spot. We only stayed one night, but would have liked to stay another, if we didn't have reservations in Idaho to get to! Our site was very level. Worth a visit and we would return.
I had a bit of sticker shock at $67/night. This KOA is right next to Main Street and we pulled in to get out of the wind, which was coming in with a storm. There is a pool but this is essentially a parking lot with gravel sites. It's OK but nothing much to brag about. Few trees and small store, but the price brought my rating down several stars. it will be easy to get in and out, in any size rig.
We've stayed at Jordanelle twice in the past three years (when in Park City to visit family). As others have noted, it's fairly treeless, but right on the lake. It's fairly quiet, with very little road noise, and about 15 minutes from Park City. I don't understand the comments about sites not being level. We've stayed in the Hailstone Campground both times, and the sites are very level. We pull a 29' with our crew cab F250 and there is plenty of room. They have a number of pull through sites and we never had any problems getting in or out. There is quite a bit of wind in this area, as it's in a pass between the mountains. It actually snowed on June 17th this year, one day after we left! The weather changes quickly. But it is a nice location and we will return. I wouldn't recommend the fishing in June, though, nothing seemed to even warrant a bite.
The owner is a very nice and helpful person. Not only did he check us in, he then came out to our site to make sure we pulled in without a problem. We were going to originally stay at Yellowstone Grizzly (which despite its high ratings is just another large, commercial type, private park), but they were full. We were directed to Wagon Wheel, and glad for it! This is a very small campground, but it's been in the owner's family for 30 years and he runs it like he really cares. The bathrooms and showers are very clean and well maintained.
You are only about three blocks from town, and could walk to most of the stores if you wanted to. You're less than a mile from Yellowstone and the drive to Old Faithful was about 45 minutes (and well worth the visit). I usually avoid the Yellowstone type attractions in favor of the off the beaten path, lesser known parks, but go see it - it's amazingly beautiful. Wagon Wheel is a nice little campground, close to the conveniences of town. There are several gas stations within a mile, lots of places to eat (we got Chinese take-out for some reason), and very close proximity to Yellowstone National Park. The owner is such a nice guy that you would be hard pressed to find anyone that is more friendly and helpful - and we've stayed at many, many parks and campgrounds.
I gave this KOA an 8, which is about as high a rating as I can give a KOA type campground. Our family really prefers state parks - more trees and nature and less concrete and fewer amenities. For a KOA, this is an excellent campground. Not a lot of trees, but a great store, laundry facility, large bathrooms and showers, nice pool, etc.
The best thing about the park is its proximity to town - many restaurants, stores, theaters, etc. nearby. Missoula just opened a Cabela's, which is about a mile south of this KOA. There is a lot to see nearby and the campground is laid out very well. The sites are easy to enter and exit for any size RV.
This was one of our favorite places to visit on a trip through Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Utah. We really loved this park! I don't know why the other reviewer gave it 6/10, it's absolutely beautiful. I didn't see any algae in the lake, and there is a shortcut from the hook-ups campground to the lake. It's a short walk, cutting between the B & C loops (about a 200 foot walk). The fishing was amazing, with lots of bluegill and perch for the kids. I caught a 5 pound catfish, which was some work to bring in. We backed our 29' travel trailer and crew cab F-250 into our space without any problems, and it was fairly level.
There is a campground host in each of the three loops, and they sell firewood on site for $5/bundle. The store at the front entrance was nice also, with some apparel and some snacks for the kids. There are no sewer connections in the park, but the dump station is right outside the park, next to a convenience store (very easy to access and free). The store was very nice with lots of fishing gear, bait, snacks, drinks, etc.
The park sits at 3,900 feet, so it was very cool and comfortable in June. My wife says that Winchester Lake is her favorite park anywhere - and we've traveled about 9000 miles in our RV! I can't speak for maneuvering around in a 40' rig, as I've never owned one. However, we're about 40' long (truck and trailer) and had no problems getting into and out of the "B" loop.
Nice park right next to the Columbia River. There isn't much to do, but the campsites are nice, with a good deal of shade in the northern part of the park. The campground is set up as a circle, with the back in sites on the inside of the circle and the pull through sites on the outside. It's very windy here, as the Columbia River gorge is famous for. There is a small swimming area cordoned off in the Columbia River, but it was too cold to swim in mid-June. There is a train that rolls through all night, every couple of hours. It sounds it's horn, but it wasn't too bothersome for me. I tend to be a pretty generous reviewer, and this is a simple campground, but it's a nice setting and was a nice stop after a long night of driving. They have a very large day use area next to the campground for large parties. You could host a pretty large gathering if you had several RVs traveling together. What I remember most about the site is how green everything was and the beautiful trees. Lots of room to walk the dogs and even take them through the largely unoccupied group/day use area. I wouldn't stay more than two nights (one night was perfect), but it's a nice place to rest in pretty open country.
The staff was extremely friendly and the park is close to South Lake Tahoe. The campground is heavily wooded and it's a little tight to maneuver. The camp store is very nice and has a lot of items, including snacks and drinks. The only real negative is the proximity to the highway, which is right next to the campground (Highway 50).
