Be advised, if you have a slideout and can't back into a site for a 25' trailer, you are out of luck. The so-called pull through sites are wide spots on the curvy loop roads, and with rocks that prohibit "cheating" by pulling your wheels into the sand, you cannot extend a slide without being in the roadway. We had to leave. Some kind of warning on the NPS website, or when we called them would have saved us an hour.
It has the best fire pits I have ever seen. The owner-operators know what they are doing, and do it well. We were here 2 weeks, loved every minute. The sap from the trees is the only drawback. Great location too.
The pool is rather small, and poorly located. The clubhouse is small, the only shower/restroom is located at one end of the large campground. Clean, quiet, nice. Good Wi-Fi: a big win for us, pushed my rating up a point.
Let's start with the positive. It is not an ill maintained campground. The seasonals and permanents maintianed their sites well and are a social lot. OK, now the not so positive. The road in is poor condition; go slow! The bridge over the creek seems to be able to handle a sizeable load, but is narrow, so be careful. The gate is only half opened, so getting a long rig in requires care. And this is before you get to the uneven, rutted campsites, where the power poles are weirdly located. The lake is an old quarry that is not very inviting. The facilities are so far from where they put overnighters that they may as well not exist. Wi-fi and cell signal- ATT or Verizon-- are not out in the boonies where we were located. And why put a guest who reserves for a couple of days on the worst site available? But mostly, the place is an OK stopover if you are visiting the Auburn Museum. Except the price for this campground is ridiculous.
Very friendly. Good sites, fairly level, easy to get in and out, access to 90 is very good, but noise is minimal. Clean. Great Wi-Fi. Tiny pool. If your heading east, plan to pass the parks long the way, til you get here.
Nice location well off the highway, with great access to Cle Elum. Very friendly, honest folks. Facilities were clean, but not sparkling clean. Sites were very narrow, had to dodge trees to walk around the trailer, but the good news is that there is shade.
Nice people, easy access from 90 and level gravel sites. We were able to leave our 34" TT hooked to the long bed crew cab truck: loooong drive through site. Nice amenities, nice view, kind of quiet except the one train in the night. It could get dusty if the wind comes up though.
If you want a shady place, this is it. Along the Columbia there is no escape from Hwy and train sounds, but they are muted here. Making the best of the topographic challenge of being in the Columbia Gorge, the sites are well laid out, with decent pull throughs. Level, and with full hookups, we had no complaints, though would not stay here again. The notice on the bulletin boards about theft were off-putting.
My only comments are that this park appears in the Passport America directory, but the owner clime they dropped out a year ago. Hence, the PA rate would not apply. So on a Sunday evening, she left a space vacant, along with several others, rather than honor the rate published in PA. (and $15 "on the table"). Oh well, we went a few miles down the road, after all, in late Oct on a Sunday, spaces are always available.
The location on the Deschute River is ideal, but the policy of closing loops to crowd campers together results in a summer holiday weekend effect. Campers to the right, to the left, as close as can be, screaming kids from first light to well after dark, and no escape. I couldn't wait to get back on the road. Too bad. Sites are fairly level, fairly easy to pull through.
The positive reviews do not exaggerate. A very nice park indeed! Great shade, beautiful setting. Level sites, decent cable. Good clubhouse and coffee in the AM. We would return. Tengo is the Internet provider, and I see a pattern- Tengo throttles the pipe to the degree that webpages take full minutes to load. Yes, you can get email, but research is an exercise in frustration. I hope campground owners soon learn how aggravating this is.
The amenities are present, but the cable TV was so bad we couldn't see the picture. The Internet was slower than a 14.4 baud modem, and multiple users can't get online. Get yourself several coupon codes if you ever want to use say an iPad and a laptop. But who would do something like that? Folks like us who work from then trailer. There is no TV signal over the air, but ATT cell reception is strong. The sites are fairly level, pea gravel and kind of wide. Though as pointed out in another review, as soon as an RV pulls in, they want to begin clustering others around it. There is a distant view of Lake Mead. Location to Hoover Dam is great. I would not return: this rate implies there is a reason to be here, but we didn't find a redeeming feature.
On I-40, stopover campgrounds abound. Many are not pleasant. Homolovi is not one of these. It is well off the highway, though one can still hear the song of the tires. This is a great place to enjoy a sunset after a day on the road, and a sunrise before returning to the journey. The ruins and little painted dessert give reason to spend a few hours exploring. Restrooms are spotless, TV signals decent, cell coverage weak.
We spent 3 nights, and were sorry to leave. A beautiful site, in a beautiful park, on a beautiful lake. Electricity the only hookup. Quiet during the week, many long term stayers. Most are serious fishermen filling up freezers. We will return, with a boat.
With our Golden Pass, a bargain at $12. Nice place, with a few minor issues. Runoff puts mud into sites, and the grass is sparse. On the weekend the proximity to the main road and open picnic area made it a bit noisy. As well, the restrooms took a beating, and were pretty gross by evening. Proximity to town is a big plus, as is the trail system. We would return.
Why oh why did we stop here? The site was so narrow we could hold a hot dog on a stick out our window and roast it on the neighbor's smoky "fire". Thankfully, they were friendly and tried to talk quietly til about midnight when they retired. There are a few wide sites at one end, and they get progressively narrower along the road. Turns are tight. For us, this reinforced the need to better read RV Park Reviews.
First, getting here is a challenge. Signage is tiny, directional arrows are hard to decipher when not on foot, and the main sign is about 100 yards left of the right turn only exit ramp. We saw it in the mirror and turned around in the golf course parking lot. Once there, we were almost alone on a Sunday. The sites are easy to back into because it is so flat and open. Unfortunately, our site was the only one with a drainage problem, a little "pond" formed, right at the front of the trailer, making hookup an aquatic exercise. Oh well. Friendly folks, and a location near the TVA made it a good place for a day.
Very nice setting, with wide sites, but the settling grounds made leveling a real challenge. I had to drop the tongue of the trailer onto the ground to get almost level, and this was a site that was better than others! During the time we were there it was quiet and pleasant. The location is convenient for access to this part of the state, once you get there- the directional signage is sparse. Overall, I would go back for a day or two, especially if I had my canoe.
Pleasant location on a knoll above surrounding forest. The clubhouse is very nice, with games and exercise equipment, and a big covered porch. Facilities are spotless, so much so we used them with relish. Sites vary from spacious to narrow, but all are gravel and easy to level on. Quiet, with mature travelers when we were there. The staff was great. We will seek other sites owned by this colorful "tycoon".
