Very few campers were in the park when we were there, so it felt as though we were parked in the middle of a big grass pasture with a few trees dotted around. Terrific staff. Easy highway access. Laid back group of permanent residents. Clean. Right on the river, which was at its lowest, drought ebb at the time. Probably a great place for a family spring break when it has more water. Good place for an overnight otherwise.

No way can you see or hear the river from here. Access is very difficult, off a residential street. Half the residents are permanent with yard decor exceptions made for them. Change for laundry not is provided anywhere on site and no one has suggestions where to find change except to canvass neighbors! No convenience store nearby. Ice was not available. They do let you leave your rental car with them for pickup. No dog walk area provided; must leave the park. Otherwise very clean. Just expect clean showers and park, flat sites and no amenities or helpfulness.

Beautiful park, a little hard to find. Spotless, well-landscaped grounds. Quiet. Very nice staff. Restrooms and showers were spotless, even though half were out of order. I can't imagine how they manage in the summer since the facilities are so small for this large a park. Laundry is not handicapped accessible. I think I remember that the men's bathroom was not ADA. Owner was planning to close laundry and restrooms the day after we arrived even though we had a 3-night reservation and several campers were in the park. I asked her to reconsider and she stayed open. We decided to leave early because of the various inconveniences and, even though the park was less than one-third full, she refused to refund the last night's fee. The most convenient dog walk is very small and the larger one is some distance away. This park came highly recommended and it's beautiful and clean, but it doesn't work for handicapped people and is difficult for those who can't walk very far with their dogs.

We were there one night on our way from the Northwest back to Texas. It's conveniently located for that trip, but a bit hard to find in Visalia. Staff was pleasant, there's a nice store and it had shade (a very big deal in drought-ridden California). Didn't use restrooms or showers, but the park itself is well-kept. A bit pricey, but they have a monopoly out there in the middle of nowhere.

We stayed here during the terrible windstorms last year. This park seemed to be out of the worst of the wind. It's very clean, but the sites are fairly narrow. The helpers are great (I think they might be snowbirds and just like to help). It's in a convenient location with easy access to the interstate.

They don't take credit cards, only personal checks. Office is well landscaped. Nearly all sites are back in and are very narrow with tall bushes on the left side. Thanks to a wonderful employee we were finally able to get settled. He repaired the cable connection for us, helped us back in and hooked us up. The hookups are low to the ground and are very difficult for disabled people to use. Sites are not level. Campground is apparently quite old. I never did find the showers. Dog walk is next to huge dumpsters that smell bad and also adjacent to parked heavy equipment and large piles of dirt. Strange place.

We stayed here on a weekend, major mistake for retired people trying to avoid children. They're about 50 miles from a huge population center and taking advantage of it. This park is designed with kids in mind -- petting zoo, swimming pools, tent meeting rooms, etc. City kids on the lose, and who can blame them for being excited? For the rest of us, the dumpsters weren't emptied nearly often enough and there was no place to put garbage; the dog walk area was too far away from most of the park. I would try this park again during the week, but this area probably doesn't have an off season. I had a black water accident and the staff couldn't have been nicer and wouldn't accept a gratuity. Well stocked convenience store.

I don't know where they got the name since we didn't see a river, but this is an excellent park. It's a little hard to find and its entrance sign is small, but it's worth the search. It has large, clean sites and the most helpful staff we encountered. Many amenities, including an indoor pool. There's a restaurant on site.

This basic campground is right on the ocean and we camped here during a huge storm. No amenities provided except location, location, location. Fairly close to downtown. Right on an inlet and the ocean itself. Everything is graveled and I doubt would get muddy. The manager is a crusty old fisherman -- worth the stay.

Stayed there during a freezing rainstorm. The shower rooms were not heated! So much for a shower. Our campsite had garbage in its fire ring. The sites are so narrow it's difficult to hook up your rig without getting scratched by the bushes -- which are everywhere. They're creepy. Nice convenience store on site. If there is a staff, we didn't see anyone. Ocean is "7-minute walk" away. We didn't see Heceta Beach.

This funky, quiet, out-of-the-way little campground is an acquired taste for most RVers. No luxuries except a fabulous view, crabbing and crab boiling from the office, which is on the water, and a ramp for your own boat or a rental. They have a happy helpful staff who live on site in their own rigs. I'd like to come back and stay a whole summer, but we live too far away.

Reservations are a must. They have the monopoly if you want to stay in town. Great location. Walking distance to drug and liquor store, restaurants. WiFi is $2 a day extra! No pavement. Grass strips next to each site. Barely enough room to park toad or rental car. Staff is helpful. Everything is very clean. Very limited dog walk, strictly enforced. At the foot of Snow King Mountain. Bring a jacket.

These people are doing the very best with what they have to work with. Rock Springs is very windy with blowing dirt and dust. They have built a fence to block most of this and it works pretty well. This is not a destination park -- just a stopover to somewhere else. The staff is great. Only one set of restrooms, which can be quite a distance from some sites. About half of residents are permanent. Rules apparently strictly enforced since park is very tidy and clean.

This older park has a fabulous view, but the sites are very narrow and short. They were almost impossible for the fifth-wheelers next to us to park their towing vehicles and not block the roads, which are paved. Your picnic table is right over your neighbors' hookups. No ice at the office. Would stay again.

This park is in a very welcome place out in the high nowhere between Texas and Colorado. The staff is very nice. They found the last bag of ice for us, which was much appreciated.

This is a lovely park with a hot buffet breakfast. The landscaping is beautiful. It has a very country setting next to a corn field at the edge of a Texas village. It's worth taking 287 to your destination just to stop at this park.

Very old park. Office and pool were not handicapped accessible. No pull-through sites. Sites were narrow. Most residents are permanent and apparently rules do not apply to them. Next to I-90.

This is a very old park and directly abuts I-90 making it quite noisy. The staff is extremely helpful. Park has LP gas, which some of the more modern parks do not. It has nice flowers and the grounds are clean. The sites were laid out before modern rigs with slides came along and are quite narrow. The water source is in a cistern-type opening below the ground, making it very difficult to access.
