Very nice park, especially for an overnight. Rate was PPA. It's on a small lake, nice long pull throughs, some highway noise, but not too much. We would stay here again.

Don't let the "bar" part of the name discourage you. the campground is well behind the combination bar/convenience store/gas station office on the front. It is a great overnight, very quiet. We chose a pull through on the back row, very long, and plenty wide enough. They are dirt and grass sites, but hard packed and our 40' motor home had no issues pulling out even though it rained while we were there. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved this park. The park hosts were friendly and helpful and let us choose our site. The pull throughs in the center of the park are huge, very wide, and very long. We were early in the season and the park was not crowded, so it was very quiet. The park has golf, mini golf, and a huge maze associated with it within walking distance, but far enough away so their is absolutely no noise. The only reason I didn't give the park a 10 was that they need to improve the drainage from SOME of the sites, and all the sites could benefit from adding a gravel parking pad. They are currently on dirt or grass (newly planted) and when it rains, you tend to rack in dirt and grass. But that is a minor deduction. Overall, a wonderful park.

Wonderful, friendly park. We were greeted by the young couple running the park, checked in, and guided to our site. The young lady even provided boards to go under our jacks, since it had been raining, and even placed the boards under our jacks for us!!! Very friendly, wonderful huge cottonwood trees for shade, and a very well kept park. The only reason I didn't rate it a ten was for a very minor drainage issue, BUT, the area has had a LOT of rain for the last few days. We will definitely use the park again when in the area.

We arrived and were checked in at the motel desk by a pleasant lady who assigned our site and gave us a map to follow. We drove into the rv area, and our motorhome promptly buried up to the axle in a soft spot in the road where they apparently had been doing construction work and just filled in the hole with soft, uncompacted dirt. The rig leaned so far to the right that the electric steps wouldn't open. I had to crawl out, disconnect the toad, and fortunately was able to back out of the hole. We managed to get to our pull through, only to find out that one of the permanent residents had hooked his rig up to our electric pedestal. We were able to maneuver and hook up to another pedestal for the night. Needless to say, we won't be back.

We received a first time visitor rate of $62.50 for the first week, then paid $125 for the second week, and a total of $31 for electric, making our nightly average $15.60. This is an excellent park, very quiet, with very nice amenities. We did not use the restrooms, but the laundry room was spotless, and the pool was cleaned daily. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only reason this park did not deserve a 9 or 10 from us is that the site had very little gravel at all, and no under base, so our jacks sank in the mud, and I had to get large blocks to support them. There was almost no grass, but the weed clumps were mowed regularly. With just a little care, this could be a perfect park.

This is a nice park with friendly hosts. It could be a great park with just a little more care. There were weeds around our patio, but there has been a lot of rain lately. The pool was not open, but was covered and screened, and would be a big draw for some people. The only real negative was the loud barking dogs belonging to a work camper who left them outside in a chain link enclosure. Anytime we tried to walk by, they went berserk. That said, we would use this park again for overnight or even longer.

Clean, nicely kept, and the sites are ample size. Each has a concrete patio. Previous comments about limited office hours are correct, and it was closed when we arrived on a Sunday. We parked where we were told when we called for reservations. The only negative is that our site was so far from level that both back wheels of the motorhome came off the ground when we tried to level. I placed 4" blocks under both back wheels, leveled again and the outside dual on the right side still was not making contact with the block. This could be a great park if they would level the gravel sites.

Rate is Escapees 15% discount. Great park with the novelty of it's own drive in theater where you can watch a movie from your rig. Plenty of room for our 40' motor home, 4 slides in our pull through site. Sites are level, gravel, and have concrete patios with a privacy fence, and real patio furniture, not just a picnic table. Lots of trees and landscaping, free Wi-Fi, Verizon cell and air card work great. We did not use the bath or clubhouse. Very nice fenced dog run.

Beautiful location very near the entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park, with huge trees surrounding every site. Although the sites would normally be difficult to get into, the owner is an expert at assisting you in backing in. Spotless bathrooms and showers. Many walking paths, creeks, bridges on the property. We enjoyed this park as much as any we have stayed in. Verizon cell and air card don't work, but a short 5 mile drive into town gets you to the general store which has a cell phone repeater, and the park has Wi-Fi for internet. This could be a 10 except that the sites need paving or gravel to cut down on the dust or mud, depending on weather.

Beautiful park and buildings, with lots of amenities. I didn't notice the roads being as bad as other reviews. There was a worker re striping the parking lots and stop signs painted at intersections the day we arrived, so perhaps they have repaired some of them. Our site was moderately easy to get into, but in dire need of more gravel. It was muddy!! The utility box lid fell off, and the cable was so snowy as to be nearly unusable. The park needs maintenance but is acceptable.

Wonderful setting, incredibly helpful staff, impeccably maintained. This would have been a 10 except that 50 amp, full hookup sites are limited, and the electrical service is old and weak. We had to change to a different site when the voltage dropped so low that our rig kept shutting itself off. The staff moved mountains to accommodate us though. Also tent sites surround the rv sites on all sides. Would have been better to have rv's in one area, tents in another.

Good park for overnight stay. The only problem we had was that the sign out front says, "Riverton RV Park", not "Wind River", so we passed it thinking maybe Wind River was farther down the road. Nope, they just don't think it is important to change the sign. Very nice office staff, and a pleasant overnight stay.

The good: tennis courts, dog run, swimming pool, golf across the street. The bad: the clubhouse was deserted, being used for storage, with rat droppings on the floor. They have nice pool tables, but no lights over them. There is a fairly nice library in the clubhouse. We attempted to attend a scheduled pot luck dinner, and were one of only 3 couples to attend, all visitors, out of some 600 sites. We all just went back to our rigs. This is a very cliquish park, which is turning into for sale sites for summer residents. Ok for a few days stay.

We overnighted here based on previous reviews. This is an outstanding park, well run, well maintained and very quiet. The entry is a treed, landscaped divided road that reminds me of the entry to some of the grand Southern Plantations. They do have playground equipment, but thank goodness it was at the end of the park, and was not in use. All paved streets, level concrete sites, large metal picnic tables, and some of the most lush grass I've ever seen in an RV park between the extra wide sites. They are adding more sites and have planted more trees in the newer sites. One of the best parks we have been in lately.

This is a fairly new park, with all paved sites and new hookup pedestals. The facilities are all modern and very clean. It has the river on one side, and unfortunately, a railroad siding on the other. The siding is not used, but is ugly as can be. The park's website shows a large fish mural behind the office building. The mural does not exist, it is added in to the website. Instead, you see abandoned rail cars. The other unfortunate thing is that the park is new, and although the owners have planted many small trees, they are still small and offer no shade yet. It is very, very hot with no grass anywhere. Where there is not paving, there is crushed rock. The owners are super, and have planted flowers in beds everywhere they can, and eventurally, the trees will provide some shade. We would stay here again, but not in the summer months, it is just too hot.

This is a very pretty, well maintained park with a very helpful, accommodating staff. The grounds, restrooms, showers and laundry room were immacultate. The staff is working hard to make the park even better. The lake itself, really a river, is not attractive, with murkey brown looking water and a railroad track across the lake. But if you must stay in the Clarkston, WA/ Lewiston, ID (twin cities) area, this is a good place.

This park is NOT big rig friendly. The roads are very narrow with trees limbs hanging over the roads. It was impossible to get into the park entrance, even going the wrong way, without scraping the tops and sides of our 40' motor home. In addition, weeds were 3 feet high around the water and electric hookups, and the supposed sewer hookup was a cast iron pipe that came out of the ground and turned back down toward the ground. It was so old that our sewer connection would not screw in, and had we tried to dump, the effluent would have run backwards out on the ground. The park was extremely noisy with screaming kids (yes, I know kids scream, but not like this) and barking dogs. Staff did nothing to control either one, and in fact, when I tried to talk to 3 camp hosts sitting near their rigs, they practically ignored me. I had heard Oregon State Parks were among the best in the country, but our first visit to one certainly didn't bear that out. The park has a pretty setting, but needs management. We won't be back.

The only reason this campground did not get a 10 is because there are no hookups. This is a beautiful National Forest Service Campground located about 4 miles northeast of Stanley and is right on the beautiful Salmon River, the "River of No Return" which was the setting for the movie starring Marilyn Monroe. The sites are all very long, paved, and many are right on the banks of the river. This is one of the few National Forest Campgrounds in this Sawtooth Wilderness area where the roads and sites are fully paved and can handle a big rig. We pulled our 40' motorhome (with ease) head into the site so we could see the river from the windshield. The river was about 30 feet in front of us, with lots of white water boiling over the rocks. The camp manager was gracious and welcomed us like family. We boon docked here for only two nights due to our schedule, but we will definitely return for a longer stay.

This is a perfect example of supply and demand. There is very little in the way of campgrounds available along this stretch of I-84, and the prices for this KOA certainly reflect it. The campground is neat, clean, and offers some amenities, but the price is way out of line for a dusty overnight stopping place along a freeway. We may have to stay here again, but will try to avoid it.

The actual pad sites here are some of the best we have encountered. They are concrete, with a picnic table and shade shelter and are level. Unfortunately, you leave the nearby freeway and drive about 2 miles in a big loop on dirt roads that takes you right back beside Interstate 25 with all the truck and traffic noise audible all the time. The park is mostly barren, but does have some shade sites on the north side of the park. The fees charged by the Colorado State Park system are exorbitant. Our campsite cost $25 per night,but we had to pay a seperate vehicle fee for the motorhome and our towed vehicle of $6 each, which made the total per night $37. We will not stay there again.

This is a very clean, neat, tidy small park right on the highway and is great for an overnight stop. The owner/manager was very nice and helpful. All the sites are clean, well kept and paved with crushed rock. We will stay here again.

This rv park has a very pretty setting with a lot of potential, but, unfortunately, it is run down. The interior road is very very narrow and occasionaly overhung with tree branches, forcing us to drive on the grass. The spring fed hot pool was concrete, clean and had a gravel bottom, but the building had parts of the roof missing, and was badly in need of painting and upkeep. It was very dusty near a parking area, but the staff was trying to keep the grass watered on most of the sites. Unfortunately, the staff did not enforce their rules against dogs running off leash, and the barking was very annoying. It is a family type place, so there were children running, and yelling throughout the place. The hot springs themselves were clear and very enjoyable. We will not go back to this campground.

First of all, the people who run this park and associated restaurant are wonderful, friendly people. The food in the restaurant, which includes smoked prime rib, is outstanding. There is free laundry and wifi, and the restrooms and showers, located in the same building as the restaurant, were clean and servicable. That all said, unfortunately, the campground and sites themselves are not in very good shape. The sites are all dirt, and very dusty, and most are not too level. The roads are all dusty dirt. The electrical hookups were in terrible shape, and actually looked downright dangerous. The weekend we were there, unfortunately, coincided with an annual marathon type race, and the campground filled up with tent campers and noisy dogs and kids on every available space, including the common areas which were really not campsites. We ended up leaving a day early. The owner apologized and refunded the money willingly and stated that the race was an unusual event and normally the campground was not that over run. He also stated they were improving the infrastructure. We believe he was sincere and will probably give them another try in the future. Again, we really liked the management, and hope they improve the campground and do well.
