Staff was friendly to us. Our second day there we were notified the local cable company was requiring each TV to have its own digital receiver/converter. The park would let you have one with payment of a REFUNDABLE deposit. We opted out. Antenna reception was adequate. As has been noted, some of the sites can be tough for bigger rigs to back into, especially if someone is parked in front of their rig. The rig across from us was on an unleveled pad. By time they leveled their rig, the front end was 6 to 12 inches off the ground. Looked like the thing was taking off. Would stay here again.
Stopped here one night en route to Virginia. It is away from the Interstate and far enough off a country road where road noise was not an issue. This is not a fancy RV park, but it is full of charm and character. On-site manager is really friendly. Manager keeps a chicken pen and sells fresh eggs! Would stay here again.
This is aa KM--RPI affiliated "Resort" than is open to overnighters. Although the staff is friendly, the description of Resort hardly applies to this park. No need for us to entertain joining either KM or RPI based on our visit here. There are no pull-thru sites. All sites are back-in and not angled. Sites are grassy, so leveling is a real possibility. Lots of grass for pets. Cable TV reception for us was poor and manager screwed up our Wi-Fi password and user name (Wi-Fi cost $1.00 more per night). The $40 per night for non-members is excessive. If we had to do it over again, we would have stopped at a Washington State Park on the Hood Canal.
This is the first RV Park you encounter when driving North on HWY 101 and upon entering Crescent City. We stopped here only because it was getting late and we were concerned about not finding an open campground. Manger is friendly, but this is a very old, poorly maintained park. The sites are very close and cluttered. Although there were other overnighters staying there, most rigs seem to be full timers or long term. Many rigs are very old. The best thing going for this park is its location (right in the harbor). I would pass on staying here again.
One of the best State parks we have stayed in! Pull throughs will accommodate big rigs (we have a 37 foot 5'er and my brother a 40 foot Class A). Plenty of grass for pets. Lots of things to do and see in the area. No cable TV or Wi-Fi is why this park doesn't get a 10.
Great Park, friendly staff, clean sites, good WiFi, indoor pool, sauna, hot tub (great for wrapping up a wet, cold day). We chose this Park rather than one in Vancouver based on reviews, and as an operating base to visit Vancouver and then proceed East on Canadian 1 (saves backtracking with a rig). We have 4 slides and had no problem extending them or our awning. Take left at first stop light after truck Port of Entry and left again at the stop sign (turn onto the road West of the tall sound wall. Fuel up and buy wine and smokes before entering Canada.
Park is centrally located for a visit to the Napa Valley. WiFi is available at your site, you need to get directions from the office on how to access it. Ample grass for pets. Very easy check-in. If the park isn't busy, the manager will let you select your own site. At first we opted for a pull-through and then got the OK to move to a back-in (Site 61), spacious and shaded. One of the best deals around is the 9 hole golf course next door, $18.00 for all day (play as much as you want). Although I didn't use it, I inspected the bathhouse. No locks on the doors, but clean inside. The mens room only had one shower.
Park is centrally located for area attractions, and staff is friendly. Pull throughs can be a problem to to get into and out of, especially if the park is full. I would consider back-in site in lower part of park. Very little grass for pets. Has poor cable TV reception, and no WiFi at site are reasons I didn't rate higher. WiFi is available at the office. We became friendly with other RV'ers who have spent a lot of time in the Columbia/Sonora area and they rate this RV Park the highest.
Nice park with easy access to all sites. Wi-Fi is free and can be picked up at all sites. Pads are dirt and gravel leaving the potential for leveling. Some “grassy” areas for pets. At least 1 hour 20 minutes from RV park to Yosemite Village. Would have rated park higher if it had better grassy areas. Any rain here and you’ll have a big mess.
Clean RV park with very wide sites. No pull through sites available. I did not observe any bath house. WiFi is available for a fee. Park is located near Coronado. There is a do-it-yourself dog wash across the street. Park is gated.
With the exception of a great river view, this park fails to measure up to the description of it on it’s website. We reserved a super sized, 50 amp, river front site and ended up with a very tight, back-in, 30 amp site on the river. At the time we checked in, we were told some of the site descriptions on the website are not accurate. We were told the park is under new ownership and that the new owners are doing their best to upgrade infrastructure and evict homesteaders from the RV Park. The park’s cable TV system has been strung from tree to tree in a jerry-rigged fashion and reception inside the rig is very poor. Sites are dirt, very tight and require leveling. Staff is friendly and park is close to Sequoia National Park. Wi-Fi hot spot is at office and not available at your site. Bath house is located some distance from RV portion of the park.
We found this to be a very nice park. We had a corner site with plenty of room and grass for the dogs. The park has a great dog run. Long and Short term residents were friendly. The only reason I did not rate this park a 10 is that you have to pay a fee for WiFi and at $45 per night it should be included.
We don’t know why this park claims to be the best in the USA?!? We found it to be not much more than a giant parking lot with way too many full or long timers concerned about short termers following the rules. It was not so much the rules, but how employees and residents told you about them. For the money charged to stay, WiFi should be available at your site. Although we did get permission for our 14 year old grandson to overnight one night with us ($2.00 extra), children are not welcome at this park. The park does have a good dog run and does permit you to wash your rig and TV. We plan on relocating to Tucson and will not stay here while the house is being built.
One of the few listed RV Parks in the SLC area. Reservations highly recommended. Tight, un-angled sites, nice grassy area for walking dog, some problem with dog owners failing to cleanup after their pets.
Good park. Gravel pad (level), easy pull thru (37 foot fifth wheel), plenty of grass for dogs. Centrally located to area attractions; far enough off the highway so you don't hear the traffic. Would stay here again.
We did not camp here we only stopped at this camp ground to see if it would accommodate our rig (36' FW). Per the Park staff, your rig must be 30 foot or less. The camp ground is part of a Florida State Park that consists of a beach and river. The camp ground is located adjacent to the river and separated from the beach by State Hwy 9A. The Park and Beach are beautiful. This is a great park for kayaking. Camp sites have power and water. All but 3 or 4 are cut into stands of trees. A very narrow dirt road weaves thru the camp ground. Large rigs with a high profile will have difficulty navigating this road. Vegetation between sites provides an excellent privacy screen. Sites are dirt and could get muddy following a rain storm.
We had learned from other forums this was a good, if not the best, RV Park from which to watch a shuttle launch. I had also read reviews reflecting low overhead clearance of low hanging tree limbs had caused damage to the roofs of several RVs. On Sat., Dec 1st I read in the paper that a shuttle launch had been scheduled for Thurs, Dec 6th. I called the park and asked if there were any available sites. I gave the weekend manager the size and height of my rig and was told spaces were going fast and that there might not be one available large enough for our rig. She told me she would call me back before then end of the afternoon with any answer. That afternoon I received a call and was informed a site large enough for my rig had been found. This park has a heavy canopy of palms, oaks, “water” oaks, pines, elms, and other trees. After checking in, I walked in front of the rig to ensure we weren’t going to hit any low hanging limbs. The exterior height of my rig is 12’ 09” and there were NO limbs on the main roads that would cause us any concern. I walked the park many times (dogs will do that to you) and observed no sites large enough to fit us (36’ 5er) with any threatening limbs. Seems as if the management has favorably responded to earlier complaints and trimmed accordingly. We expected the park to be full, but discovered it at between 70% and 80% RV capacity. All extension requests were granted (launch kept getting postponed). We found this to be an exceptional park. Sites were spacious and occupants friendly and helpful. The location is unbeatable, as is the $24 nightly tariff (Jetty Park almost 17 miles south is $40 per night..not sure if they charge extra for daily parking). The sites are not paved, but it isn’t difficult to level your rig. You will need “patio” rugs to cut down on the leaves and dirt entering your rig. Although I’m sure rain water percolates quickly, it is probable that a rain storm will make things messy for at least a short period of time. I only observed one poison ivy vine, something I’m allergic to and am constantly on the look-out for. This suggests to me the management has gone out of their way to eradicate. There are a bazillion squirrels that will drive your dog nuts, but what the hey!?! The pool was in use daily. We didn’t use of visit the bathhouse so no review on that. Had no problem connecting to WiFi. Were able to pull in ABC, CBS, and NBC with our rig’s antenna. This is a great park!
We stayed at this park twice in 2007, in February and July. In both instances, the 2 different managers were friendly and cordial. I don’t recall there being any trees of any significant size or shade value at the park. As has been observed, there are several full-timers who have homesteaded and a couple of their sites are trashy looking. One site is occupied by an old, unoccupied Class A that is for sale. In February the showers were kept much cleaner than they were in July. Contrary to what the last reviewer said, I did not find the sites too close to one another or otherwise crowded. There was ample room for awnings and lawn furniture. During both stays, the managers were gracious enough to permit our son who lived close by to park his car in adjacent, unoccupied sites. They also permitted our son, his wife, and our granddaughters to use the pool. I did not observe any pull through sites, but there is ample room for large Class A’s to maneuver.
Spent 5 nights here the first week of Sept. Occupancy rate was about 50%. This is the first KOA we have stayed in. We made reservations 6 weeks earlier, yet they had us arriving a day late and departing a day early. Management was cordial to us, but had others complain to me about poor attitude. This park by far has the tightest sites and maneuver room of any park we have ever stayed in. Initially, they tried to assign us a site way too small for our 24’ TT. The first solution was to move us a site over. Same problem. The only way we would have fit into those sites would be unhooking the trailer and using a tug to park us. Thank goodness these sites were too small for us. Our neighbor would have been a family of 5 homesteading in a small PUP, with a dog that never ceased barking, and with storage containers stacked around their site like an ammo box bunker. Finally got a site large enough for us to back into. The tightness of the sites left us concerned about being hit by other rigs maneuvering the park. Restroom and showers were basic and clean. The park is located right next to an active rail line. As many other reviewers state, the only thing this park has going for it is it’s proximity to Louisville.
Spent 2 days here in the second week of Sept. Occupancy rate was pretty high. Very clean park, best shower and restroom facilities we have seen at a park. Was never bothered by nearby road noise. Didn’t find the management problematic, just the opposite very friendly. They do tell you when you register that screen rooms and other stuff is not permitted outside your unit. We travel with 2 dogs and had no problems regarding attitudes about animals. Many others at the park also had pets. Park is very well maintained. There is a large grocery store about 150 yards away from and across the highway from the park.
Spent 2 days here to look around the OBX and just to chill from 2 days on the road. It was off-season so rates were only $53 for a premium site. This was the first week of the off-season, so there were plenty of sites available. Management was cordial, friendly, and professional. We had a reception problem with our cable. A Techie/Security Guard was dispatched within minutes. He brought with him a TV and cable. Great thinking…we found we had a bad cable and were able to procure a new one at the office. Other than being closer to the beach, we didn’t find any benefit in paying extra for a “premium” site. If we were to stay here again, we would choose a non-premium grassed site. As has been mentioned by others, there is no shortage of sandburs, especially at the more sandy sites. This is a real PITA with dogs. The approach to our shower house was less than ideal, very sandy meaning your going to end up with sandy, dirty feet after your shower. Shower and toilet facilities were basic, but clean. We didn’t use the pool so no comment there. This is a gated park. Expect to encounter strong, continuous winds. If you are only going to be in the area for a couple of days and can boondock, consider staying at one of the nearby NPS campsites for $20 per night.
This was our first stay in a COE Campground. What a pleasant surprise. We arrived Labor Day evening and found the campground almost empty. The sites are spacious and the setting beautiful. The mangers were helpful and friendly. We would have loved to have been able to have spent more than one night there and will keep it mind for future use.
