We stayed there over the July 4th weekend and were very happy with the resort. They are still not quite done with everything but it is scheduled to be fully operational in November. All of the roads and campsites are gravel right now but paving was set to begin the week after the holiday. We have a 40' class A with toad and had no problem at all with the roads or turns. This is a resort that has gone out of its way to provide for amenities you don't generally see. A movie pavilion showed recent films on a large screen HDTV, they had Karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights, several covered picnic areas with BBQ and large fire pits and they even have a dog shower/tub if you want to clean off Fido. A clubhouse with library/reading room, swimming pool, jacuzzi and saunas is under construction and a large campground store is also under construction. The resort is between the freeway and a railroad track. We found that the freeway noise posed no issues and sounded more like wind in the trees, the trains sounded like trains. Didn't bother us at all but it might bother some. A private trail takes you down to the river - about a 1/2 mile walk, and there is a large enclosed play area for kids along with a "bigfoot croquet" field and a soaker squirt gun field - squirt guns provided - so there are lots of things to keep the kids occupied. We enjoyed the resort and will return there in the future. Our rating of "8" will go up once all of the amenities are complete.
This was a very nice park located in Washington's wine country. Large sites on concrete pads with lots of trees and grass. Very well maintained and very nice staff. If you are spending some time in this area, we would highly recommend this campground. Easy on and off the freeway and definitely big rig friendly.
A very nice park. Well maintained and friendly staff. Very wide sites and when the park has a low occupancy, the staff will separate the rigs that check in as much as possible to give you more privacy. Most of the sites are on gravel with a few on the grass itself so there is some possibility of mud during the rainy season.
Very nice park, very well maintained and very friendly staff. They are "big rig friendly" though you will need to disconnect your toad for parking. Their check-in area has long parking for several rigs to park while checking in without blocking the entire driveway - something I really appreciate. Lots of shade trees and well maintained grass areas between sites made this a very nice experience for a week. We would definitely recommend this campground and will be staying there again next time we are in Grand Junction.
This park is located at the rear of a mobile home park and many of the camping sites are taken up by semi-permanent units as well. While the staff was friendly the "campground" itself was lacking in any style at all and to our mind, was not worth the nightly rate charged.
The rating we have given is not a reflection on the campground itself but rather on the management of the campground. We found the facilities to be clean and reasonably well maintained. They indicate that they are "big rig friendly" however they have few sites that will accommodate a 40' motorhome only one of which could you leave the toad attached and still be able to maneuver in and out. Our stay was only one night on our way to Colorado for a 50th anniversary and we liked the campground enough to make a reservation for 1 night on our return trip. We elected to stay in Colorado 1 additional day to spend with family and called Lakeside more than 24 hours ahead to reschedule or cancel our reservation. They were unable to reschedule us and unwilling to cancel the reservation stating that they would charge us for the night anyway. Nothing on their web site or in their written literature indicates a no-cancellation policy in fact their web site indicates that 24 hour notice of cancellation will avoid penalties. We found that they did indeed charge us for the night on our credit card. We consider this a deceptive business practice and will never stay there again.
Information on this park indicated that it was "big rig friendly" which was not exactly the case. There are some "pull through" spots for larger motorhomes but most are taken by longer term tenants. We were traveling with friends and both of us have 40' coaches with toads. The campground is an older area and is located in an area of mature shade trees, very pretty but a nightmare for maneuvering a larger coach. We were placed in an area that required dropping the toads first just to make the road turns, and then back and forth jostling just to get into the site. The campground has a small pool, well populated with largely unsupervised children who also enjoyed riding bicycles through occupied sites. The campground also states that is has a "dog run area". This turned out to be a fenced 4' x 8' area in the far reaches of the campground. The trains were just icing on the cake. I don't believe that we will be returning though the area is beautiful with much to see.
