Arrived late after making a phone reservation (and paying over the phone with a credit card). Yet, they did not leave the restroom codes for us. Another camper helped us out: only to find that the showers require $.25 for every 2 1/2 minutes!!! And no change machine! Not to worry though, the water is only half warm!!! This is a very beautiful small park minutes from downtown Hood River, Oregon. My review would have been a 10. But, being stingy on the restroom codes after securing payment over the phone is just not good hospitality. Then, requiring $.25 for each 2 1/2 minutes This is not a state forest campground! And then, to pay with quarters (that you've had to procure from a convenience store) for water that is not hot. The restrooms were the largest and cleanest on our trip but the fact that they didn't want us to use them brings a perfect 10 experience down to an 8 at best. If in the area again I'd absolutely stay again but only pay after getting the restroom codes and I'd stop to get quarters before arriving.
Arrived late without a reservation in a heavy downpour. Office was open late with friendly staff to welcome. The restrooms were clean with absolutely the best shower of our trip! I even checked to see what shower heads they were using so I can buy one for home!
Arrived after the office closed as a late check-in. The entrance road is a little small and dark but findable (the entrance shares the road with a residential development and at night we wondered if we where taking the correct road). Note that late arrivals are not given the rest room codes, you pay the same $ amount but don't get the chance to use them. Luckily another camper fixed that problem. (If we would have been extended restroom privileges my overall rating would have been a 9 or 10.)
This is an excellent park. Excellent staff attitude. But: poor restroom cleaning on a holiday weekend is inexcusable. No restock of toilet paper products and no cleaning of dirty toilets from early Sunday am through Monday mid morning on Memorial Day weekend??? Did they not think this needed to be done when every site is occupied?
We stayed there after a huge rain, the entire camp was a wet mud pit. But somehow they kept the restrooms very clean (even on a busy holiday weekend). The CG is at the bottom of a redwood grove with very tight space between trees, definitely not big rig friendly! We would likely stay here again if in the area.
We spent on night here when traveling through - we thought we wanted to be as near Monterey as possible - recommended for totally self contained units only - the shower house has one toilet and one shower each with no benches, clothing hooks, or privacy - in fact the doors don't even lock and there is no security to the outside neighborhood - paved parking area that is on a slant! bring all of the leveling blocks you can find! PLUS, all hookups will be at the rear of your unit (and maybe even on an adjoining site) so bring extensions! - the campground host was awesome and most accommodating helping everyone as best he could to have an enjoyable stay (and recommended an awesome restaurant close by)
We don't usually chose KOA's after some sketchy experiences in the past but this is BY FAR the nicest KOA we've stayed in. Awesome facilities for families with kids! Get one of the inner sites with concrete pad and gravel surrounding or one of the most expensive sites with patio, fire pit, and chairs. When in the area again we will return. Again, awesome facilities and activities for kids!
Nice park under redwood trees - I hate to write anything "not nice" but I must say that the Yelp reviews of the management of this park are correct - it could be that this park has a troubled past and that new owners or management is trying to keep out a bad element - rules upon more rules and email response requiring agreement to rules when making reservations online is 1) troubling and 2) difficult when traveling - although the park is quaint and nice we'd seek out a more welcoming and customer service oriented park when visiting the area again.
This is a gravel parking lot. There are no restrooms or showers or even a building of any kind. The office is housed in a converted shipping container. However, the Wi-Fi is free and fast. They will also let you wash your RV at your site. We liked the place so much we extended our overnight stop to a second night and made a work day. Simple grocery and fuel and LP nearby. The campground is directly behind a Camping World. We would overnight here anytime.
Price reflects Passport America rate. We over nighted here. Clean restrooms and showers although only one each men & women so there might be a line. (Our RV was winterized due to severe cold weather.) Despite some trees at perimeter of property we were able to get satellite signal. If needing an overnight in this area we would stay here again.
We over nighted here during a bitter cold snap. The restrooms were warm and clean. We were the only people there besides a couple of long term stay units. From what we saw in the middle of winter... long units might have issues with the entrance roads and especially many of the sites. If you are a big rig I would call ahead for info.
We over nighted here. Basically it is a dust patch. We did not check out the pool but used the showers and restroom. They were the fourth cleanest of this trip. We used all of our leveling blocks and had to steer around some obstacles to park at our site. (Other sites were better). We enjoyed the gravel parking lot we stayed in the following night much better. I would probably search out other options in the area before returning here.
