Spacious and level, gravel sites. Lots of shade trees, carefully limbed up so no problem maneuvering into your space and around the park. Wi-Fi works great, and there is a new pool. Everything is very well maintained and spotless. Great location for visiting Springfield, or as an overnight since it is so convenient to many interstates. We will definitely return.

Large, very well maintained facility with level, paved sites even though it is built on a hill. The pull through sites have awkward utilities placement with electric all the way in the front and water all the way in the rear, which were impossible to hook up to without an extension to either the electric or water. The park did provide me a 50 amp extension cord to use while there at no charge, so they are accommodating to this arrangement at minimal inconvenience. There is a large swimming pool, and the park was completely full with families and children. Caution is mandatory, as there are loads of small kids everywhere on bikes and trikes! This made for a good choice for an overnight for us while traveling due to its location, and would be great for families with kids who need lots of things to do to keep busy. But it's not a spot for a scenic or tranquil destination camping experience.

Very nice campground with good utilities and friendly staff. One of the better KOA's for sure. Although the roads were a little tight in some places, we were able to navigate in and out without too much difficulty with our 40 ft motorhome and tow vehicle. We had a pull-through, though we only saw two real pull-though sites in the campground with the remainder being back-ins. A 45 ft MH with a tow vehicle might have some challenges in navigating between some of the mature trees that provide thorough shade if going to the pull-through sites. We would stay here again.

An absolute gem of a park run by Hamilton County. RV sites are generous in size and are all level, back-ins with mature trees providing abundant shading. At least 25 of these sites back directly on to the White River, offering a picturesque and tranquil site that exceeds expectations and offers lovely canoe or kayak access as well. The campground and facilities are spotless and well-maintained. It is gated with a security code at night, and the campground hosts and staff constantly are checking to ensure everything is in order. We stayed for 10 days, and during the week the campground was half-full while it completely fills on the week-ends. Although there are many families with lots of children on the weekends, everyone seemed to be incredibly respectful of quiet hours, and the park never lost its quiet and tranquil character. Free Wi-Fi was available, but only on the office porch. Lack of cable TV and Wi-Fi throughout the park is the only thing that kept this from being rated an 11 out of 10! We will definitely return.

What more can I say... this is the best RV resort we have ever visited. Outstanding landscaping and a brand new activities center that boasts a post office, business center, café, movie theatre and a concierge service. The proprietors are on-site and take a full hands-on interest in their resort and the enjoyment of their owners and guests -- which is evident in the quality of this facility. You won't find better anywhere in the country!

Campground is clean and well-maintained. Has very easy access directly from US 2, which results in some road noise during the day, but it is not a problem because at night traffic on the main road is almost non-existent. Wi-Fi is strong and fast, and cable TV is strong with more than 70 channels. Pull through sites (6 or 7 of them) are level with good gravel and at least 70 ft long so they enable you to stay hooked up if towing. Certainly the best choice in the area if you are looking for a campground that has full hookups.

Located in a county day use park, it is very well maintained and rather picturesque. We were here mid week and it was quiet and practically empty, but the resident manager (who is a lovely person and ensures the park rules are followed appropriately) told us it is packed on the weekends and can be a bit raucous. There are only 2 sites that will accommodate a 40 ft MH, and one has low hanging branches that would make that problematic. The site we had was marginal with branches and I had to leave one slide in about 3 inches to avoid the wind from causing branches to rub my rig. If it weren't for that inconvenience, this would have been rated a 9. We would stay here again, and hope they trim the trees in the fall.

An older type campground with mostly permanent residents in rigs of various levels of maintenance and care. The sewer location is at the extreme rear of the pull through sites, making setup difficult. There were numerous sites that were sufficiently sloped as to make leveling a big rig challenging, although our site and the one next to us were flat enough. This is ok for a stopover, but we would not camp here for an extended stay.

Absolutely beautiful and immaculately maintained park and campground. The sites are wooded, level, and the surrounding green space is immaculately maintained. We have never seen such a beautifully landscaped and maintained state park. There are miles and miles of level, paved bike trails both along the lake and in the woods. The park "rangers" were all friendly and helpful, as was every other park service person. The park is very heavily used on the weekends, as when we arrived on Sunday afternoon there was a constant stream of campers and boaters exiting the park. But during our stay during the week, we felt we had almost the whole park to ourselves. Be aware though that the waterfront sites are absolutely covered with huge bugs at this time of year. Screened canopies for sitting outside of your camper are an absolute must at a site near the water unless you don't mind being eaten up. We camped at an interior loop away from the water, and had no problems with insects. We will definitely camp here again.

The "new" large pull throughs have completely misplaced utilities. The water and sewer are located at the very back of the site, with the sewer connection located more than 25 ft behind the bumper of my rig after pulling forward only enough to barely keep my towed vehicle out of the road behind me. When I asked to be located to another site, they informed me they had no others available, but that they would gladly sell me another sewer hose to connect with my own hose so it would reach. The person who led me to my site only shook their head and quietly told me that the owners who built the campground "weren't RV'ers" and wouldn't listen to those who were, when the built the sites. I believe it. This is a premium price to pay, and that should be reflected in the design and amenities of the campground. Unfortunately, it is not. We would most likely not camp here again.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The owners are on site every day, work hard to provide quality and immaculate facilities, and take obvious pride in welcoming every guest. The made us feel like family from the time I called for a reservation, then when they greeted us, and throughout our stay. The restrooms, showers, and laundry are the cleanest ever. Don't know how they do it. The sinks and fixtures were not only perfectly clean, they were dry each time we went in! Of course, looking out on the Yellowstone River with the mountains as a backdrop and deer along the shore is the icing on the cake. The owner and his wife (along with all their other staff) have put together the total package, and other campground proprieters should take a lesson from them. Nightly rate reflects the discount for a weeks rental. We will be back to camp here again as soon as possible.

Very well maintained KOA. Everything looks and operates like new. Level paved sites with plenty of room between them for slideouts and awnings. All utilities worked great. A little quirky to get in and out, since it is smack in the middle of town, but that also makes it an extremely convenient location to everything in the Meridien and Boise area. The rate listed includes the KOA Value Kard discount, and it's a bargain for all that is provided. We would stay here again.

Good location for the Tri Cities and wine country. Unfortunately this campground is predominately permanent residents with a fair share of poorly maintained campers and the overall park is in need of a significant update and improved maintenance. Sites are extremely close together and I had to drive over a berm to exit when we left, due to insufficient turning radius with residents trucks parked almost directly in front of my camping location. The campground office is a 1960 vintage trailer that looks as if it has been parked there without attention since it was new. This could be a decent park, but it needs a lot of attention to attain a reasonable standard of cleanliness and amenities. We would not stay here again.

A lovely state park campground, that is very well maintained. It is also heavily used and quite busy, but that is because it is so accessible to Seattle and a worthwile destination. The only downside is that pull through sites for larger rigs are narrow and sharply curved among the large trees, making pulling through any site in a rig longer than about 35' a real chore. I had the very most accessible site in the park, and I had to back into the pull-through to situate in my 40' MH. But the beauty and features of the park make this worthwhile. We would stay here again.

Lovely family-oriented park with heavy forest and beautiful views. The sites are very tight for 40' MH, and mine required me to remove a log post to make the pull through turn (which I did replace neatly when I left). Choose your site carefully from the reservation website: the photos provided give a pretty good idea of what they are like. If you have a rig less than about 32', you will have few problems. If you have a rig more than 40', it may not be possible. It is peaceful, beautiful, and very well cared for, so the effort is worth it. We will look forward to camping here again.

This is a gem of a campground! One of the loveliest and most appealing we have ever stayed at. Price includes $10 reservation fee. Beautifully maintained and manicured sites are so far apart you feel like you are the only one here. New lighted utility posts and services provide much more and better utilities than your standard national, municipal, or state park. Convenient to Eugene and the interstate. We will stay here anytime we have the opportunity to do so!

A big parking lot. No trees or character at all, but does offer level sites with good utilities, as well as new and clean rest room and laundry facilities. It is fine for a stopover. By the way, there is no travel plaza here, contrary to what their web site says. It looks like they ran out of money to build it, so the ony thing here are the RV spaces.

How cool is it to camp in an orange grove! Smell was lovely, the facilities were well maintained, and the overall park was a joy to be in. Too bad we were just passing through for one night and that the oranges weren't ripe yet! It's a very nice park with friendly, efficient check in. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

This is really a snowbird owners destination, but they rent owner sites when not used, for transient use. Signage is very confusing as the name of the resort community out front is not Boulder Oaks. There is a small Boulder Oaks RV sign but you have to look for it. The sites identified as premium waterfront view (for which you pay extra) are a bit misleading. The view is only out the back (not helpful for a MH since there are essentially no view windows out the back), you look over and between other RV's, and the lake is about 10 miles away. The office closes at 5 PM so if you need something after that you are out of luck. However, the place is very clean, residential in nature, and the utilities were fine. Pool is nice, and laundry and restroom, though not convenient, were very clean. A bit pricey for what you get, but there is not much else in the area to choose from, for a big rig and the facility is well kept. We would stay here again.

Campground is well maintained and the owners/staff helpful and accommodating. Laundry and restrooms were clean. The sites close to the road are level, but experience significant road noise (even inside our MH due to truck exhaust brakes on the downgrade road). The sites away from the road are much less level. I saw several motorhomes with wheels entirely off the ground so be prepared for levelng issues. We would stay here again.

Excellent campground. Newly built/renovated and everything is constructed and maintained first class. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Laundry and baths are spotless, and the pool was sparkling clean and obviously new. There are great views of Mesa Verde, and the location is super convenient to the park entrance. We would certainly stay here again.

Easy on-off. Sites are a bit narrow, but generally level, and the overall park shows evidence of good maintenance. Even so, our cable TV connection didn't work properly, so we had to use the next door camp site connection (which was ok since it wasn't occupied). The neighborhood is a bit transitional, and the police came through the campground several times one night apparently on a call or looking for someone, which was a bit unsettling. Nevertheless, the overall park was more than adequate. Free pancake breakfast was a nice touch. We would probably stay here again.

Park-like setting with large mature trees. Makes for a pretty environment and some relatively tight maneuvering of a big rig, but we got our 41' MH in without too much difficulty. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Easy on and off I-40. Sites are level and the entire place is very well maintained. Nice little cafe in the office with the very best homemade pie! We would definitely return here.

A relatively new facility with easy on-off from I-40. Didn't visit the restrooms but from the immaculate condition of everything else I would guess them to match. Helpful, friendly staff with good Wi-Fi, proper hookup locations, and very flat and level sites. Not really a destination campground because there is not much of significant interest nearby but it is an excellent stopover location. Would definitely stay here again.

Campground has a very odd entrance where you have to pull completely around the campground store during check in. All sites are back in and there is no place where you can disconnect/reconnect your toad without totally blocking the road. Not ideal for big rigs, but it is workable with some attention. You have to pay for Wi-Fi and although there is no cable TV, we had pretty good reception of a handful of stations from the antenna. This place was jammed on Saturday when we arrived, and dozens of children were absolutely everywhere (frighteningly, they were largely unsupervissed), on bikes and skateboards and people driving ATVs and golf carts constantly through the campground. But at night it was quiet and peaceful and by Sunday night the park had about half emptied out. Design is odd with double concentric loops. Try to get one of the outer loops on its outside, and you will have a nice woodsy view behind you and a quiet site. Strange not to have sewer in a relatively new park, but they do have two dump stations on the way out. We would stay here again.

On the positive side, there is good Wi-Fi and cable TV, the restrooms and laundry are quite clean, and there is a large green space for playing frisbee, etc. On the down side, about 20-25 percent of the sites are permanent residents (although with generally adequately maintained trailers) who park their vehicles obstructing the roadways and who seem to be indifferent about picking up after their pets. The "green spaces" between sites are weeds with spotty gravel in the parking spots and with many bare dirt areas. We would stay here again, but only for a day or two.
