Price based on year round lot rent. Park changed owners October first of 2011. Many changes are being made to upgrade appearance, electric, etc. Will be nice when completed: 1-2 years. Prices will change for next season. Other changes are uncertain at this time. Rumors are many, facts are few. Check it out: don't rely on hearsay. This park is definitely worth checking out and is still one of the best values in the valley.
Rate is Passport America. Park is well kept, facilities clean, personnel friendly. Fish dinner on Friday night. Fishing and swimming pond, as well as pool. Both only open 11-6 and the pond only on weekends. Also has small practice golf course. Be careful to follow posted directions when coming and going with anything over 10 feet tall. Lots of VERY low bridges in area.
Mostly permanent units, well kept. Transitory lots are near the front of the park. P.A. rates Sunday -Thursday. Lots of kids, activities. Has river docks. We found it a bit noisy, since our lot was near the playground. A dance on Saturday night resulted in a visit by a drunk. By far the most reasonably priced park in the area. Gets VERY busy on the weekends.
Family owned, friendly park with trout pond, winding brook, recreation hall, store, picnic area, lots of Canada geese, & permanent RVs. Very small playground for the kids, but nothing else for them to do. Older summer residents take wonderful care of their lots. Daily lots are in the back under the trees. Couldn't get out with our satellite, but got 6+ local stations (analog - NOT digital!) Wi-fi is free & reception & bandwidth is good. Price includes HST (taxes). Actual posted rate is $30.00 per night. So-so rating is for lack of facilities for a 'destination' park, which it seems most of the campers are looking for. We found it a wonderfully quiet, relaxing park.
Park has fairly level, gravel sites. Big rigs use site 7 or 8 for easy backing. Self pay at the kiosk in the campground. Has beautiful views of the mountains and river/lake. It's close to City of the Dalles, Oregon. There's no shower facilities and a port-a-potty for bathrooms.
When we got in, all of the 50 amp sites were full, so the price is for a 30 amp, no cable, with discount. It is a pretty little park by I-90 and after our recent experiences, we just loved it. Not a destination in itself, but plenty to do in Deer Lodge. The people are friendly and the noise is minimal, even though we parked closest to the highway. Note that most of the trees are young and do not provide a lot of shade.
We did not feel comfortable in this park. Our 35' coach barely fit in the site they swore would be plenty big enough. Even then, we had to park on an angle to avoid hitting the coach behind us and the tree when the door opened. The 'patio' was on the wrong side of the coach - away from the door, and when the neighbor put out his 10x10 canopy, we could barely get our HHR in to park it. The roads are so narrow that you can barely back into your site. The first site assigned to us had a 2 ft high post, a fire hydrant, and a small light right in front of the site, so you couldn't turn the coach to get it into the site without hitting another post at the corner of the pad! The sewer connection is 6" high and placed inside a cement barricade (so you can't run over it). Unfortunately, it makes it very difficult to dump without spilling. All in all, we will never return - we'll boon dock in Yellowstone before going back to this park - even if it is the only one that has hookups. Oh - no cell service either, though there is service at all of the lodging facilities in the park.
We reserved a site for 4 nights a week ahead and were told we were the only ones reserved for that night. When we arrived, the person checking us in rudely told us that "not everyone could have a riverfront site" and assigned us to a 2nd row pull through. You couldn't see the river or even get to the bank to see it, as there are no access points provided if you don't have one of the riverfront sites. Most of them are occupied by Yellowstone workers. The place is extremely dusty and the road is not watered, although the grass is. If we had not been meeting friends there, we would have left immediately. There was Wi-Fi, but our friends used my network, as the one from the park was unreliable.
On board Camp LeJeune USMC base, this park is restricted to active duty and retired military and their guests/family. Reservations must be made by the eligible person and paid for within 2 weeks of the time the reservation is made. Time limit of 2 weeks during summer season. The park is level, on a barrier island between Onslow Beach and the Intercoastal. Very nice and quiet - except for the military aircraft!!! Great beach, biking and walking area. Also fishing, crabbing, and yacht watching. We loved it!!!
One of our favorite parks. Be careful where you park if you expect rain - some of the sites flood. The city has just contracted for new gravel this fall, and will re-do the sites and roads. There is a very nice park across the road, right on the river. This was the last year for the Wizards baseball team, so the evenings will be a lot quieter with no games. An office building has been added this year, and the hosts this year were just wonderful! We paid by the week for 50 amp service.
Our rate was Escapees with metered electric. Electric cost us about $2.00 per day. We were there during peak blueberry season, and the entire park is one big blueberry patch! The artwork around the park by the owner is beautiful - carved rocks painted and nicely displayed. The owner is adding improvements and seems concerned that his guests have a good stay. It is across the road from Lake Superior, and close to the Ojibaway Casino. I wouldn't care to stay in the back-in sites by the main gate due to noise, but the gate is closed at night (you can use a back gate), so your sleep isn't disturbed. Overall, we loved it and stayed 2 weeks.
