This is a good wayside campground for a night or two. It is quiet and clean and good Internet connections, for certain. Yes, there are some long-termers but we didn't find that distracting. There are lost of nice trees and shade. The campsites are a little compressed together but not bad, actually. Though it is near the freeway, we did not hear any freeway noise during the night. The people were friendly and courteous. This is not a destination campground like a state park might be, but it is pleasant and not too far from the main Baker City. One thing I will note: our dog got into some foxtail the day before and was having a very rough time. We took her to the Baker City Animal clinic and the vet and staff were AMAZING. We got right in, got excellent care and would highly recommend if you need animal care to go there. Very impressive.
We were the first overnight stayers at this park. The park is still very much under construction at the time that we stayed in June. That fact certainly influences our opinion about the camp. While we were there, they were dumping huge loads of gravel, starting at 7:30 in the morning and then grading the gravel all day long. The sites we stayed in were close together but would be OK with some plantings in between. The sites back up to another camping place that is not as nice and the addition of a big wall of trees would be so helpful in terms of separating this very nice park with the one behind it, which is not so nice at all. There are cabins that are amazingly pretty - so well done, nice taste, complete and new and sparkling. When we were there, the restrooms and laundry and showers were not done. It said on the web site that there were showers and laundry, but that will come down the road, I'm sure. The best thing about the park is an amazing huge dock that is great for boats and fishing and swimming. Our dogs jumped off the dock over and over swimming after toys. The owners let the dogs go free since were were pretty much the only ones there and that was great fun for them and we appreciated it. We expressed some disappointment over all the construction and lack of a laundry and they gave us a free night which was very generous. In the future, they are going to have RV sites up on a hill over the resort which will be just gorgeous. With full hookups, I could see paying $50 for those. But $50 for the sites they have now seems really steep compared to the prices we pay all over the US. The north woods is exceptional in its own way, but if I owned this place, I would charge $30 or $35 for the lower sites and maybe $45 or $50 for the upper sites that are still coming. The reservation lady (wife of the owner and likely half owner) was very friendly and funny and made us feel welcome in advance. The man who owns the resort also got us all set up for fishing and even picked us up a batch of minnows. Currently, they have a 4 PM check in time and a 9 AM check out time. That is so far out of touch with what other parks do, I can't imagine that they will keep that schedule. We were able to stay later but only because there was no one else there. This must certainly change. This place just needs time to grow into itself. I believe it will be fantastic. Right now, they might want to wait a bit to open officially until a few more things have been completed.
As we approached this place once we got off Highway 40, it was one wow after another. I felt like we were in Bryce Canyon with all the amazing rock formations. They are positively stunning. This place is not easy to find - look for the Red Creek and Strawberry Pinnacles sign to turn off. It is easy to miss and we did miss it and had to go back. Part of the road is dirt (not much) and the roads are very narrow but completely doable. The lodge and cabins and camping are on two different little roads, and the river is in between with two bridges to connect the locations. As the other reviewer commented, the campsites are in kind of a bowl area with these amazing huge rocks surrounding it. Lots of hiking possibilities. I would have given it a 10 but it needs some upkeep. But we would definitely come again and stay for longer. I felt like I was kind of in a different world there.
This is a great little find of a park. it is just off Highway 40 and I would have given it a 10 except you can hear a little bit, just a little bit, of road noise. The showers and restrooms are clean, though we did not use them There is a nice little laundry, two washers and two dryers. The reception people are friendly. There's a lovely walk on a gravel pathway near the river that goes a ways into the woods. The sites are well spaced and have small trees planted between them, though they are not tall yet. Lots of open space and many sites have these wind shelters around the picnic tables that look like they would be needed on many days, though when we were there, it was not windy. There were just a few mosquitoes around. We would most definitely stay again in this nice little park.
This park is accessed through a very windy road and almost a residential area - a new exit off the main road would be easy and convenient. However, having said that, this park is a very nice place to stay. It is not a heavily treed park, more parking lot features, especially near the main office where we were parked. You could hear trailers and cars coming and going, even into the night. There are lots of casinos nearby and a shuttle to them from the campground, so I suspect lots of campers are there for the gambling. Try not to get a site right near the office to avoid the gravel crunching into the night. The sites up on the hill are the nicest, I think. It is windier up there, but more trees on the periphery. There are full hookups, a fabulous big clean laundry, a nice store with appropriate groceries and tourist stuff. On weekends, they serve all you can eat pancakes for $3 in a nice eating area. We did it and the pancakes were good if simple. It is very tidy and well maintained overall. I would stay there again if in the area, for sure, but not near the office if possible not to. The operators are also very friendly and helpful here.
We stayed in this park overnight only. The sites are huge and very separate from each other. The night we stayed, the mosquitoes were so big and plentiful they could carry you away. Setting up was a real challenge with all the bugs. The first site we chose had no electric active, so after getting all set up, we had to unset up and move. The campground itself is very nice in terms of its natural settings being preserved. I think this might be used for long summer stayers as well as campers who just stay a night or two. Kind of like having your own north cottage. The people are friendly and accommodating. We walked over to the restaurant and had dinner which was fun. There is no path really between the campground and restaurant yet. The road worked. I think a standard price of $40 is a little high actually; the price does go down with longer stays, however. We were given a discount for confusion over directions and the terrible mosquitoes. That was so nice. We might stay again but the bugs were so disruptive. I guess sometimes you have to pick either stay in a parking lot with fewer bugs or woods with more bugs. We never know quite what is best. These people are trying hard, are kind and responsive and the spaces are lovely.
We camped here on the first day of the Memorial Day weekend. My husband, who can be old and cranky about kids, was worried about the number of children that would be in the park for the holiday weekend. There were certainly children there, but they were extraordinarily well behaved. They can ride their bikes forever in a circular paths of the park. There are three loops, the first two dedicated to RVs and the third set up for tenting. We actually camped in the third loop because the other two were full, but we had a very nice pull through site and there were lots of other RVs in this loop as well as tents, just no hook ups. Our site had a nice view of the river. The sites are spaced perfectly from one another. Lots of trees and a gorgeous walking/biking path along the edge of the river. There is also a great swim beach and for us, a place to throw the toy in the water for our lab. The park is spotless and well groomed. The setting is spectacular. It was really hot the day we went, but the canopy of trees made is cool and welcoming. My only complaint is the front desk is quite up tight. We arrived at 1 PM and official check in time is 2 PM. Our site was empty but they would not let us go down there without signing a waiver about sprinklers damaging our trailer. I wondered, what about the trailers of the people that are already in there? And I mean they were strict about it! We waited in the parking lot with lots of other people whose sites were also empty. It just seemed a little ridiculous to me. Maybe they've had trouble in the past but it seemed overly cautious and regulatory to me. But would I stay here again? OMG, in a heartbeat!
I have mixed feelings about this campground. It is close to the freeway though not really noisy but is basically a parking lot with some trees around the edges. If you aren't into trees and separation between sites then this might be great for you. The best part, however, are the owners. They are friendly and accommodating and do everything to be helpful. What lovely people. If you need a spot for the night and aren't looking for the classic state park camping kind of experience, this place might be just fine for you.
We had heard great things about this park from a friend who stayed there previously. We heard especially about the lovely flowers. We were too early for flowers. This campground has nice mature trees, which we love. The sites are a little close together for my taste with no foliage separating them. The host was pleasant. Drawbacks: close sites, trains several times a day, including during the night. Pros: easy freeway access, pleasant host, nice mature trees.
We found this little campground after checking out a larger campground in the area and not loving it. It is on highway 85 as you head north. We had decided to head north to the Roosevelt National Park, but were tired from a long day and really wanted to stop but had decided to keep going. My husband saw the little sign out of the corner of his eye and we drove over to check it out. There was no one else there so we pulled in. The sites are arranged around the edges of the campground. We found one that had lovely shade, near a big tree. There are picnic tables as well. This is not a fancy campground but it was cozy and friendly and just what we needed for the night.
The last review for this park was posted in 2010 and I think a lot must have changed since then although we stayed here once before in 2009. For us, this campground is wonderful! There is a lovely balance between trees and open areas. It is right on a reservoir (and a very large one at that). They have flooded here from time to time as flood waters here prevent flooding in Jamestown itself. The park is very well kept up - lawns mowed carefully, sites clean and we thought quite level, though we didn't try them all and my husband says some are not as level as others. We camped in site 26, which is right on the lake. There are several docks for fishing or swimming. Our lab loves running off the dock after a toy in the water. There are small cabins to rent and two playground areas for the kids. There is great walking around the park and there are some cement pads, I'm thinking for tents, also. We have a Golden Age card and we paid only $12.50 for water and electric site, right on the lake. There is also a dump station (if there had been sewer hook ups I would have given it a 10). My one and only complaint about the campground, other than the sewer issue, is the mosquito population if HUGE. I think we are here at a time of year when they are plentiful most places but we did not go out without spray. I would highly recommend this park for your camping enjoyment.
This is our second stay at Dash Point. We visit our daughter in Seattle and camp here because it is close to her. There are lovely shade trees here and the sites aren't too close together. The turns are quite tight in some of the campsites which is the only reason we gave it an 8. If you have a bigger RV, the B loop might be really tight for you. However, it is lovely and shaded and most pleasant.
We just loved this park. Of course, we were the only people camping here, and we can't attest to how close together the campsites are. But the hosts were very friendly, helpful, and responsive to our need. The restrooms, laundry, and showers were spotless, though we didn't use them. This is such a short walk from town. There were deer everywhere on the property, and our dog was on very high alert the whole time. The cabins are on a hill with great little lights all the way to guide someone up there. We hear in the summer this campground is a nursery for baby deer. We just might be back in June. We had a terrific time here attending the Balloon Festival.
This is a great spot for the family and dogs to be on the river. The "pods" accommodate 3-4 campers, but the location is great if not completely private. These peninsula locations cost more than the other RV sites that are closer to the office. The people are very friendly and there is a lot to do. We gave it a 7 only because of the cost. $50 per night is pretty steep and if you reserve online, it is another $10. At $60, we think this is overpriced. There are no discounts available. Would we stay here again? Probably because it is interesting and a terrific site on the river, but we sure wouldn't stay here for a long time. Two weeks is $700! I think they could at least provider some kind of discounts: AAA, Good Sam, Passport or senior discounts, or perhaps seasonal rates. Its a fun spot, though.
It is a fairly long drive on country roads into the campground, but after questioning our decision to go that far off the main road, we arrived and realized it was a good decision after all. We recommend just taking it easy on the road instead of kicking up a lot of rocks, and it's a little dusty but fine. The people there are amazingly friendly and helpful. The owner even came out to see if he could help with any hooking up issues that might occur. The sites are not completely level, but we were able to use levelers to get things level. I expect this summer they will work on these sites to level them out a bit. They only took over the campground in September, but it looks like they are working now to optimize things. The sites are nicely spaced out and you can get a site right on the desert and have a lovely view. The have a nice laundry, too. And a tennis court that is fenced and they allowed the dogs to run in there, chasing a ball. Everything here is tidy, clean and welcoming. It is really a great spot. My only reservation, and it is a small one. There is a large cross on the hill as you come in and signs announcing bible study classes. Everyone has a right to display their religious preferences as they wish, of course. But for those who have religious preferences other than Christianity or who have no religious preferences, it might be a bit of a put-off for some. Overall, this place is great and the people who staff it are extremely friendly and helpful.
This delightful park is just on the outskirts of Austin. The sites are very nicely spaced with water and electric hook ups and an easy to use dump site. There are lots of trees, and some sites have lovely shade. With the drought, the trees aren't as green, they tell us. Hopefully this year, they will get some rain. If you have dogs, hold on TIGHT. There are herds of deer in the woods. Our lab almost tore my arm off in the dark last night when she smelled or saw them. I would definitely stay here again.
This is a great little surprise park (although not completely a surprise because we read about it on RV Park Reviews). It is right on the Colorado River. There are non-hook up sites right to the river, or hook up sites above the river or full hook up sites in a different area of the park. There is a great place for the dogs to run near the river and swim safely in a little lagoon. I would would given it a 10 except the people at the office weren't all that friendly. Also, they weren't available for ice at the times they said they would be open. The sites are a little bit close together on the hill portion of the park. The ones by the river would be great if you didn't want hookups of any kind. Next time we would do those and boondock.
This is a terrific state park just south of Portland. If you are visiting in Portland, it would take you about 30 minutes to get to most of the city from here. The sites are very nicely spaced, tons of trees and a nice group area which we have used many times. Loop A is older, closer together but great trees. Loop B is newer, farther apart sites, but fewer trees. Both are great. We love camping here every year with our Airstream rally group.
This is a lovely state park, not too far off Highway 10, and well worth the extra miles that it took to get there (not long). It has lots of nice trees (which of course I love) and nicely spaced campsites. We are camping with a friend, and we were able to park right next to each other. Not too many people out and about at this time of year. There is vegetation growing between the sites for more privacy. The people who checked us in were very friendly and welcoming. My only complaint about that was the strong unpleasant smell of cigarette smoke. Yuck. Seems to me people should not be allowed to smoke in that kind of public building. That's the only reason I gave it a 9 vs. a 10. There are great hiking trails, a ton to do. Beware, however, there are ticks galore for the dogs! Make certain you check your pet over and treat with tick stuff before arriving, and then check all your own cracks and crevices. They love to be between your toes.
Great location, friendly people, nice laundry room, clean and tidy. It is right on the river with great views of the barges. We would have given it a 10, but they don't have cable TV, and the super bowl was on! There is limited TV with an antenna in only one area of the park. We would have given it a 10 if there had been cable TV. We liked sites 109 and 108. We would definitely stay here again. They took Passport America or the rate would have been double.
This is a nice little park outside of St. Martinville and Breaux Bridge. I actually think it is quite a bit closer to Breaux Bridge. It has fishing (though not when we were there), a playground, a pool and nice grounds. We would have given this a higher score, but the bathrooms were not very clean, but the worst thing was the laundry room. The washers and dryers were fine, but the smoking in there was awful. When you want clean clothes, the last thing you want is for them to smell like you spent the night in a smoking night club. There are big no smoking signs up, but someone smokes in the ladies room that is attached and it stinks up the whole place. I think it is someone in residence there because as I was doing my laundry, there were three different times that I could smell fresh smoke, really really bad. Someone needs to manage this. We would stay again because the park is nice, but I would never use the laundry room again. The rate of 15$ is with a Passport card.
This is a terrific campground. Don't be dissuaded by the location. You go through kind of an industrial area with some chemical tanks to get there. You might think it is a long ways from Memphis activities, but it really is only about 10 minutes, max. This campground is on the other side of the Mississippi. And right ON the river. We secured a camp site directly on the riverfront. The park is very well kept up, clean, tidy and cheerful. The short stay campground area has a free laundry room with two washers and dryers. So easy! The hosts are friendly. They even come by the campsite to pick up the garbage. Being able to see the river move by with its barges is amazing. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We highly recommend it.
Dave’s RV Park is in a lovely quiet setting east of Vanderhoff, BC. They have had the park for 20 years, and it is clear how much love and care they have put into the park. There is a putting greens area, a huge checker board outside for the kids and pretty flowers. The sites are close together, but not too close. Some of the sites are up against the woods, and others have trees. The restrooms and showers are absolutely spotless, some of the best we have seen on the whole trip. Some of the sites have cable TV and other don’t. The Wi-Fi is great! We caught up on all the old emails with ease. Owner and his wife welcomed us with grace and a warm attitude, something you don’t see all the time at RV parks. I’m sure, over the years, they have made many people feel welcome in Vanderhoff. They sure did us.
We arrived early in the day, about 2 pm, and found a campsite #6 by the water. I think it is one of the best sites at the campground. It is right down by the lake (take the loop to the right) and is on the very end, so there was a lot of privacy. Our friends camped next door. Our site also has a square tent pad that is grassy, and we were able to pitch a screen house on it, a nice way to avoid those mosquitoes. The lake is just gorgeous. Flat and so blue, so very blue. There is a boat launch very close to the site and also the beginning of walking trail. The trail is 4 km round trip. It has some hills, but nothing too stressful to hiking. There is also another hiking trail that departs from the other end of the campground. It is 1.5 km long. The camp host was very friendly, and she brought us wood in a wheelbarrow. By evening, there were very few spaces available, so we were glad we got in early. The cost was $17 per night US. Well worth it. As with all provincial parks, there were no hookups, but there is a place to load with water. There are also recycling and garbage containers. This is a truly lovely park, we would definitely stay here again, but this time, for a week!
This pretty park, just beyond McBride, was a good overnight stop. The lawns are very nicely manicured and there are a variety of site types to chose from. There are some heavily treed, well separated sites at the very back which back up to the river below (fenced), but they don’t get good Wi-Fi reception. There are sites around the edges that back up to the woods but are open on the sides, and then totally open sites on the grass in the middle. The Wi-Fi is one of the best we’ve had on the trip. As with some other RV parks, there are lots of strict rules. I’m not a big rule person myself, but I wasn’t too put off by theirs. The garbage is only at the exit, which was mildly inconvenient. This place has obviously been cared for carefully, and is very tidy and clean. We enjoyed the Giggling Grizzly Pub which is right off to the right as you enter town. The building is just terrific, new, spacious, good selection of foods of all kinds. Also, the people at the visitor’s center were very pleasant. We would definitely stay at this park again.
We stayed here because of the review in the Alaska Camping book. I would have to say it is overrated in that book, in my opinion. It is right on the highway. The really pretty sites in the woods are all tent sites, which is too bad for us, nice for tent campers. The RV sites are mostly all in a big gravel parking lot, but there are a few that back up to the highway, but are in the trees. We chose one of those and because we have a front bedroom, we were not bothered by highway noise at all. The gentleman who runs the place was somewhat gruff with us. We asked for help with the Wi-Fi and he seemed annoyed. Some sites have TV hookups and many do not. It has a wash station for RVs but it wasn’t working when we were there. We did enjoy a meal at the Wolf Den attached to the park. I guess we were expecting more from the park, given the great review. We were somewhat disappointed, and the next day, moved. We had planned a two night stay but only stayed one night.
This was the only park open at the time of year in this location. It is a parking lot and absolutely no more. The man at the desk is friendly (Archie) and it is close to a grocery store and a nice path for walking around the lake. It has hookups, but absolutely no camping feeling for those of us who like trees. If you need a place to stop and park, this is fine. If you want an experience, forget it.
We arrived here after driving through a lot of snow. We had called ahead, thankfully, because they only had five sites open for the season (May). These sites were pretty close together, but they had some really good sites, not open yet, on the lake with hook ups. There is a restaurant there, too. Lots of locals seem to congregate here, it has a warm feel. It looks like they are doing quite a bit of work there on something, not quite sure what, maybe some cabins? We would stay here again. However, it should be noted that it is not close to anything. Muncho Lake is not too far away, maybe an hour.
This is a very nice park about 2 miles from downtown Whitehorse. It is an easy downhill walk to town, but a rough return! Unlike so many RV parks in Canada and Alaska, this place actually is a campground vs. a gravel parking lot. True, in the middle, there are several sites that are side to side in the gravel, but there are plenty of sites, with full hookups, that are nestled into the woods with nice separation between sites. The laundry is spotless, with a large separate area for folding laundry. The gift shop that is part of this park has many locally made products with reasonable prices. The woman at the counter was very helpful and friendly for our entire stay. There is a nice area adjacent to the park where you can take your dog off leash and climb into some hills with lots of trees. We highly recommend this lovely park
This park isn't the greatest, frankly, but the view is absolutely amazing. We parked in spot 12 and awoke each morning to the site of incredible mountains and water and eagles. There is a laundry, and it is clean, but the appliances need replacement. They have some rust and are very expensive.
This is an amazing campground. All sites are on a rushing river and there are tons of trees, but space enough for big rigs (at least we see some here now). There is so much to see - hiking trails, antiques, bubbling small volcanoes. The laundry and showers and toilets are absolutely spotless. The hostess just makes this place. She smiles a lot, is not uptight in any way, and makes you feel so welcome. There is a dump station centrally, and water and electric at each site. We had planned to stay here on night and ended up staying five (with some travel in between). The whole place is beautifully kept up. Each time we have come here, there are few people staying I think it has yet to be discovered. Or perhaps the distance between here and other places, like Anchorage, is only about 170 miles. But for whatever reason, this place is way underutilized. It is a totally amazing magical place. This is very much like a state park or provincial park rather than a commercial campground. We will definitely be back.
