Park attendants were an older couple from the east coast, very friendly. Met the new owners, and they were nice. Park is in good condition, well kept, green cut grass and level gravel sites. Big spaces, well shaded. Children's playground could use an update, but kids enjoyed it. Pool is in good condition, owners very concerned about safety. There is a trailer park at the beginning of this park, but don't let that throw you, this is a nice park, great for an overnight.
If Wahweap is full, this is the only game in town, and they know it. The park itself is actually OK, it's in the desert in Arizona, so no grass and very sparse trees. The sites are wide and all gravel. The attendant must be related to the owners, as he is a 'dude' who is more concerned with his social life than pleasing the guests. There are a lot of foreign guests here, and he runs out of patience rather quickly and is a bit short with them if they don't immediately understand. The first night we got there he closed the pool several hours early so he could go out on the lake with his friends, leaving the whole camp sweltering in 110 degree heat with no way to cool down. The bathrooms are locked at strange hours with no explanation as to why. All in all, you're on your own at this park, as the staff can't be counted on for anything. Page needs another park desperately, as even a halfway decent one with caring management would put this one out of business rather quickly.
The good: Nice park, right next to the ocean. Beautiful views, great to hear the waves lull you to sleep. Kids loved the tide pools, collected all kinds of shells and starfish. Wi-fi (if you're close to the office) available, no charge. Owners are pleasant and try to help. Bathrooms and showers are clean, fun little group building with great ocean views. The bad: Sites are fairly narrow, no shade, nothing to break the constant, cold wind. We were there for 3 days in late June early July, and it was COLD. Too cold to stay outside for extended periods, so you would spend a lot of time in your rig in close quarters. More expensive oceanfront sites have no sewer. The ugly: Kind of cheezy to charge for showers. The wind destroyed our awning. Pulled out early because we couldn't stand the wind any longer, were only given a partial refund. Summary: We would try this again, but not until the hottest part of the Summer, in August perhaps. Too cold any other time.
Fun park off of Highway 101 near Gold Beach, Oregon. The owners are very nice, and care about what they do. The German atmosphere, complete with dinners and polka, are fun, and would be especially appreciated by the 'Golden Age' crowd. Sites are large with cement pads, grass, shade. Bathrooms, laundry and showers are clean and well maintained. Playground needs an upgrade, and grassy areas need some TLC. Overall, though, a very nice park. Would stay again, and recommend to fellow travelers.
What a great little park, just a few miles from the South entrance to Crater Lake. The owners are friendly and helpful, and you get the sense that they do this because they love it, not for just the money. Playgrounds are nice and well-maintained, bathrooms and showers are spotless, beautiful setting, game room is nice, kids absolutely loved the *FREE* canoeing on Fort Creek. While it might be cold at Crater Lake, this is in the valley below and the temps are warm. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to fellow travelers.
Were it not for the location, this would be one of the absolute worst parks we have ever stayed in. When we pulled in, we were greeted by a nervous old lady who was frustrated at children coming in and complaining the volleyball rope had broken. We were then charged $6 extra per kid per night, making extra charges at $24 per night, definitely not worth it. I'll explain more later. Our site was NARROW, so NARROW that we couldn't use our awning. The sites are arranged so that just outside your front door, you are treated to a great view of your neighbor's sewer hookup, literally 4 feet away. And of course, when our neighbor pulled in and hooked up, he forgot to open the valve of his drain at the sewer connection, flooding our area. Luckily it was grey water from his washer, but still we were denied the use of our tiny area. The arrangement of the sites has got to be against health code regulations. The sites are hard packed dirt and rock, no grass, and no privacy between them at all. The staff. If you have 'Dueling Banjos' on mp3, I suggest you play it while reading this part of the review. The staff had not a clue on what customer service or basic manners were. We were treated right off to hearing a female staffer swearing loudly that someone had 'sh_t' all over the bathrooms, with more colorful adjectives thrown in for good measure. During our two day stay, we were astounded to see other staffers driving slowly around the park in 70's vintage automobiles, cigars hanging out of their mouths, music playing loudly. They were dirty, unshaven, and uncouth. But this is much like the clientele at this park. The atmoshpere reminded me of the keggers we had in High School. Great for young adults, but not so great if you have small children. There were so many tenters and the park was so crowded that there was no room at the playground at all for the kids, and the bathrooms, showers and laundry room were absolutely filthy. We did not use any of the facilites, hence there was no reason at all to pay extra for the kids. And don't even get me started about the 'ice cream social' at $1.50 per scoop. The owners of this park are using it as a cash cow, doing only basic maintenance, if that, and it's easy to see that their hearts are not in it. How this place earned a AAA rating is one of the world's great mysteries. The location is this park's only saving grace. There are much nicer parks in the area, though, and we will use those if we ever return.
