Stayed here for 4 days through the weekend. Park was quiet except for the cows in the auction barn on the next street over. Local park pool with hours of operation and Amish stores in the area. Showers were better than most for a park location.
The wifi is $12 a week and is only for one computer. If you use 2 computers at the same time it is $24 a week. The wifi is very very slow most of the time and not worth the money. The restrooms are not very clean with soap left in the showers for days at a time and cobwebs in many places. Will try another park if we visit here again.
The view is great and the park was quiet enough for the week we stayed here. The sites are not real close together but close enough that your neighbors and their dogs can irritate you if they stay outside and talk for half the night. The not so great part is the size of the roads, as we had to shimmy our little 33 foot Winnebago into our back-in spot. We watched some people give up trying to back their 35 foot 5th wheels into a tight spot with very little turning space to do so. Some just gave up. And there were pull-thrus available, but apparently not given out for some reason. The pull-thru are really just back to back sites in the center of the park so if one side of all the pull-thrus (about 20) is full then there are really no pull-thru sites available. The park has a leash law as does the town of Homer but as we all know, dog owners think these leash laws apply to everyone but them. So I had to tell a few people to leash their dogs while here, as I know the park owners can’t police the park 24/7. The Wi-Fi is ok depending on how many people are on it. I would stay here again if in this area.
The park has great views and a mountain hike just up the road from the park. There was a moose calf kill by a bear on the trail when we were here. It was removed but grizzlies always come back to their kills so we stayed off this trail. The showers are ok but you get a lot of hot and cold water if others are using the facilities also. There are 7 separate rooms with a toilet and shower in each, which is a nice touch. The owners smoke a lot so the smoke drifts from their garage attached to the showers which isn't good if you do not like to breathe others smoke. The sites are too close together as are all the campgrounds in Alaska and Canada that we have been to. The washers and dryers are a little old with $2 wash and $1.25 to dry. If you do not over fill the dryer it will dry with one cycle. We would stay here again if in the area.
The sites here are way too close together. The sites are back to back and side to side, not really pull-thru's unless the site behind you has no one in it. You have to unhook your toad before going to any site. Quiet time starts at ten PM but because the sites are so close together if someone is setting outside and just talking normally it sounds like they are in your rig! There was someone with a quad that was very noisy and did not really care if it was midnight. One of our neighbors had their outdoor rug and chairs and awning hanging things on our side of the site boundaries. I had to walk on their rug to get to my services. I reported this to the office but nothing was done. The neighbors had two dogs that barked all the time also. The Wi-Fi was very slow most of the time probably due to the number of people using it. We would stay at another park if visiting Valdez again.
This park has very narrow roads and some pretty sharp turns. We have a 32 foot class C and had to unhook our toad before going into the parking area and still just made it into our pull-through site. We barely had enough room to park our toad at the site. If you are towing anything you will have to unhook it before going to your site. We also had to wear mosquito shirts or hats to do anything outside. The quiet here is great though, as we were the only ones in the pull-through area and had a great night sleep with no dogs barking or noisy RVers. The Wi-Fi is spotty and there is only one shower in each of the two restrooms which are located in the Ranch building. The surrounding area is mountainous and beautiful but bring a lot of bug repellent!
These were the dirtiest showers and restrooms I have seen in my 4 years of full time RVing! When we arrived at the park there was no one there at all, just a sign stating "will return at 3". There was absolutely no one in the park. If you do not need to use the shower or restroom this would be OK for a night, but find someplace else if possible. We will not stay here ever again.
This is the best park in the best location in the Escapees (SKP) system of parks. There is an Olympic pool, a well stocked gym, and both pickle ball and tennis courts available. There is a Cyber Center with a computer and printer available and also three DSL connections are available for your personal computer. There is also Wi-Fi available in the Friendship Hall and Library. There is a billiards (pool) room with three pool tables available. There is a sewing room with 19 tables available, and a fully stocked kitchen in the Friendship Hall and another available in the Ranch House. There are two big screen TVs available in the Library and Ranch House. There is also hiking right outside the park. A great shopping town is only 15 miles away. We spend 2-3 months a year here as we travel around the southwest in the winter months. All i can say is that you need to see this park and all it offers.
This park is good for a nights stay but has 15 amp service only as it still runs on a generator system, power lines to this area are being constructed. Mosquitoes are abundant and hungry. We went to the cafe to eat and were greeted by two mangy looking dogs in the food service area! I like animals but they do not belong in the cafe where i am eating, period. All animals carry germs and diseases that can be harmful to humans. So this is a good place to stay for a night but not to eat unless you like dog hair etc. in your food. We would stay here again but never eat in the lodge or cafe.
Ok for one night. We stopped at 4 pm and there was one pull through left. Dog leash rule not enforced. Local dogs visit the park often. Sites have no space between them. No fire pits - thank goodness! Wi-Fi is ok, if you are not blocked by another rig between you and the office - which is the case for a lot of the park. The town itself looks a little worn out. The visitor center was helpful. Would stay again if in the area and needed a spot to stop.
Ok for a night. Lots of mosquitoes. Ok showers - $1 for 7 minutes. Wi-Fi is very very slow. Park is for sale. One restaurant in town is ok - next to grocery and gas. A lot of parking space. We would stay here again.
Sites are a little awkward and close together in some areas. Showers are tight but usable. $2.50 to wash, same to dry. There were 2 tents while we were here even with signs saying 'no tents' and not being outside at night because of the bears. We drove to "Salmon Glacier" on a dirt and bumpy 15 mile road, and it was well worth it. We stopped at the 'bear viewing' platform on the way to the glacier. Very nice but no bear because the salmon were not running yet. wWe ate at "The Bus" in Hyder, AK about 5 miles away, both days we were here! Go there, it's the best! We will stay here again.
Nice for $20 but a little tight at some sites. The owner does everything from cooking your salmon to parking your rig. Meal for 2 was ok, but became pricey ($24 became $50) when we had pop and one desert added to meal. Owner is a little outlandish but helpful if needed. We would stay here again but skip the meal at the park.
This is a nice and quiet place to stay. Restrooms and showers were great. Laundry was $2 to wash and $2 to dry. Showers are $2 for 4 minutes but worth it. Lots of goose droppings around the shore but the dock has benches for relaxing. Farmers market on Saturdays in town is nice and the walking bridge across the river was fun. Eat at the coffee house downtown for some good food!
This is a very nice and quiet park. Laundry is $4.50 to wash and dry a load. Huge laundry and shower facility and very nicely kept. Restrooms and showers are each private and separate from each other. Would definitely stay here again.
Nice and quiet. Very few vehicles and trains at night. Showers are very clean and and water pressure is good. The WiFi needs help as we were right next to the office and even with only a few people in the park, we had difficulties with connection speed, really slow at times. We would stay here again.
The entrance to this koa is basically one way as the street is very narrow. We got in ok but this could be a big problem for some on a busy day. A place to unhook or hook up your toad may be difficult at times. Lots of dogs and of course what goes along with them (the dog owners who do not pick up, leash up or control their dogs and they are always at every park). The park is well taken care of and has many permanent residents that are mostly from Canada. The Canadians come across the border in droves every day to shop at Costco and Walmart in Bellingham.
Pretty muddy in the site we had. Cable was bad. Neighbor had sewer line open and laying on ground. Reported this to office and nothing was done. Sewer gas will kill you if you breath enough of it! Showers were really not taken care of at all while we were there. Will not stay again.
The noise at this park gets worse each time we stay here. The local neighbors partied very loudly until about 1am on Friday. This park only has one (1) shower for 152 sites so plan on a wait and maybe cold water! Barking dogs can be an annoyance also. The smokers seem to not care where they smoke or who has to breath their smoke. Some of the old park models here are rumored to have mold problems but are being sold without any warnings attached. Buyer beware!
We like this park because it is off the beaten path, and we can hike and bicycle without worry about traffic. The people here are not as friendly as most Escapees parks, but such is life. We visit here almost every year when in Yuma, AZ.
This SKP (Escapees) park is one of my favorite RV parks, as it is away from all the noise and hustle of the city, but close enough for an easy 2-3 hour shopping trip. There is an Olympic pool, a well stocked gym, pickle ball and tennis, and hiking and biking galore! Many of the people here are very friendly, and of course some are not, but SKP'ers are very much more friendly than any non-SKP park I have ever been in! Of all the parks we visit, we stay here the longest as the winter weather is so awesome here.
We have stayed here three times in the last 4 years . It is sad that this is the only campground closest to Bryce Canyon. There are ATV's running all over the place now with no control or security at all even though they said there was. Dogs are all over the place with no control of the leash and barking rules that are in effect in the park. If you walk out in the fields around the park you will probably step in dog waste. You definitely can smell the waste, which is becoming very apparent in many RV parks now because few people clean up their dogs mess if they can get away with it. We only stay here because we love Bryce Canyon, but have found another spot so will not stay here again.
This is one of my favorite campgrounds because the owners are there almost all the time and they make the smokers and pet owners strictly adhere to the rules. We camp here because we love the fresh air and the quiet times in this park. These attributes are actually becoming hard to find in most RV parks but not this one.
We have stayed here a couple of times in our travels and enjoy the location for visiting the area. The owners are great and helpful if you need help with anything. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest we have ever seen. The laundry is reasonable and the dryers dry with the first deposit. You can get to just about any attraction from here. Bicycling around here is safe also as the roads do not have a lot of traffic.
We enjoyed the quiet here at night and the close location to Duluth and the North Shore of Lake Superior. There is a nice pool to cool down in and the owners are very nice and helpful with any questions. The biggest problem we have found in this and other parks in our two years of "full-timing" is RVers not cleaning up after and not controlling their dogs. The only negative thing at this park are the fire rings as the sites are close together and your neighbors fire is only about 5 feet from your RV which creates smoke problems. We will stay here again if in the area.
It is hard to describe this RV park except that it is probably the nicest RV park we have stayed at. Olympic pool, tennis court, pickle ball, gym, library, cd rentals ($0.50), and the most beautiful views you can imagine. Lots of hiking right out your back door also.
After traveling for three days from Cape Hatteras NC, we stopped paid for two nights of full hook ups here and were told by some very young and seemingly very inexperienced staff how to proceed to our assigned site. When we got to our site there was someone on it and so we tiredly returned to the office where the staff did not really seem to know what to do. They finally sent us to another site where we scrapped some trees on our roof (31C Winnebago) and then found out there was no sewer connection at this new site. We then went back to the office and requested a refund which we finally did receive and left there forever. Very inexperienced young people running this park.
Red Rock RV advertises itself as peaceful and quiet with big signs as you drive in advertising just that, which is why we picked this spot in the first place. The park has a lot of ATV’s and motorcycles so quiet does not happen all the time! There are fire rings here which are not a welcomed site at any RV park as the smoke always finds its way into your RV! I was told they allow any type of dog in this park as long as it is controlled. Park has too many dogs! This was the first RV park since we have been full timing for over a year now that seemed a little unfriendly to both my wife and me. That doesn’t really bother us but it is the first time in an RV park where no one seemed very friendly. We were kept up until 3am in the morning one night by our neighbors drinking and partying all night! I was charged $34 a day or about $900 a month, which seems very high compared to other parks about 10 miles away that charges half that rate for the same hook-ups for a month.
This RV park is probably one of the best we have stayed in and have been here many times. The owners are very nice but have strict rules that they make everyone adhere to, and they live right in the park. We will always stay here when we visit Glacier National Park, which is usually once a year.
This is a one shower, one bathroom RV park. The sewers are open with no screw fittings to attach to. The dogs run all over the place and little clean up by the dog people! The RV dog people amaze me in my 1-year of full timing. Very few clean up after their dogs, and they always seem to let them do their business in someone else's space! How inconsiderate can you get? We were actually chased into our RV by the neighbors dog right after we started setting up. We had to yell many times to get them to call their dog off! The owners do not make anyone adhere to the leash law policy. If you have PassPort America you can stay for $15, but if it is raining or wet you will need 4x4 to get out! Will not stay here again.
There are some really nice sites here but you need to know where they are or you will get stuck in a bad one! This is as close to Bryce Canyon as you can get with full hook-ups. The sewers need some work but have, I guess, for some time! We would stay again only because it is the only campground close to Bryce.
We have been full timing for over a year now and this park is so far the highest priced and the worst park we have stayed at! There are pit bulls and other types of large dogs in the park. The path to the bike trail is littered with dog excrement and no one cleans up after their dogs. There are many permanent residents who pay little attention to park speed limits etc. A local clerk in a grocery store nearby said this whole area has drug and vagrant problems. Even the park advises locking everything up at night. We will never stay here again.
We stayed a week and hiked around the Grand Canyon. Everyone was very nice and we slept very well at night. We had one neighbor that had his dog off leash but the owner quickly handled that problem. There will always be someone who wants to break the rules, and always someone who will help them learn why there are rules. Anyway, we will definitely stay here again.
This is probably the only place to stay if you have a 40 foot 5th wheel and are visiting Great Basin National Park. Sad, as it is also an overnight parking spot for road equipment and trucks that leave their trucks running all night, and as any RVer knows is not conducive to a good nights sleep! I asked about the truck noise and was basically given a shoulder shrug as an answer! We did not even use the restaurant as the cigarette smoke from the casino permeates the whole building! The casino has some really strange people and noise at times and no one seems to care about any inconvenience it causes for the RV patrons right out back! Great Basin is an awesome place to visit, but bring a smaller rig and get in to the Basin park to camp! There is absolutely nothing in this area for many many miles! This place is also a place where everyone just stops to let their dogs do their business anyplace and no clean-up policy is enforced.
We stayed here for a while and were mostly happy with our stay. The only problem was that smokers would walk around the park and you got their smoke fumes in your RV also. The pool was labeled with no smoking signs, but some of the smokers paid little attention to the signs and smoked in the pool area anyway. Board members seem to turn their heads to some of the problems that exist in this park.
