This is a funky, clean campground. Sites are long and plenty of room as a pull-through. The width of the sites are not very roomy but you can pick your site and there is plenty of empty sites between. You drive and park on nice green grass which is level and hookups are easy. Very peaceful and QUIET area out in the middle of nowhere. Convenient to drive to Lava Beds. No TV, great Wi-Fi (instant connect), lots of deer and rabbits to watch. Only1 shared bath/shower room and it's up a small hill, not a great looking area (funky but clean). No laundry but web site says it's under construction and owners will do a load for you. We were here mid-summer, lots of flies around the grass, couldn't sit outside too long even with fly spray. The "play" area doesn't look finished either and a porta potty is nearby. The owner and manager are very nice, willing to please; they just need to finish what they started. We would stay here again and if you want to get away from typical campgrounds for some peace and quiet this is the place to come. Bring what you need as there is no store in Tionesta, looks like the other campground nearby might have one, but didn't check it out. We would have given a higher score but for the flies. There are 2 goats in a pen which didn't help the fly situation with the heat.

This is a nice place for a quick overnight stop. There are long pull-through sites and you don't have to unhook your tow. The place was only occupied by us and one other. It's gravel and level, easy hookups, some trees, large plants on the sides. Laundry was older but nice, plenty of washers, bath was old but clean, shower stalls were small. Manager nice guy only been there 2 months. All the stores in front are closed. Gas across the highway, easy access and good prices. There is also a store. You can stop here and save a few $ instead of doing Beatty. Free good Wi-Fi, no TV.

Decent and pretty clean, sites are close together. A bit of grass on the side with a table on concrete pad. Room for pull through, easy hookups. Used the laundry, could be cleaned and swept more frequently. Baths were fairly clean, small shower areas. Wi-Fi was free and worked, at the time we were there TV service was out. This is not a large park and there are some full timers in the back in sites, not an issue. If you take an end unit close to the street there will be traffic noise from Main Street. Good street tacos at a hole in the wall place a few blocks down on Main St.-order window/no restaurant inside: Jehova es mi Pastor e Taco.

Nice park, clean sites and they were scattered so you aren't on top of each other. Grass area, table and fire pit at each site. Trash cans conveniently located around the park. Other reviews are right on. There is 1 shower for men, 1 for women, they are clean and roomy. As one reviewer stated this is a "rustic" park, it is "decorated" this way in that the buildings and grounds have that look. There are quite a few full time residents, some in trailers or mobile homes....not an issue but if you look closely there are areas that could use a clean-up. Used the laundry; it was clean and convenient. Would stay here again, owners very nice and accommodating.

Price does not reflect $3 charge for making the reservation online. Hookups inconvenient, water spigot it situated so you can't put a splitter on it. We had a pull thru, had to unhitch the tow first to get the motor home in line for connections. The trees on sites don't really provide shade, grass is not green, they did mow while we were there which made it more presentable. Lots of kids during the weekend using pool, etc. Did not use baths, showers or laundry. We had moved here from a 10 park in McMinnville because we wanted to stay another 3 nights visiting friends. Had also read on a review that the management required notice when leaving or would charge another night....this wasn't verbalized at check in, however, we did drop a note in the mailbox the am of leaving just to be safe (ridiculous little rule).

Very clean, quiet park, showers, laundry, baths very clean also! Called ahead about 2 large dogs, instant approval-so not an issue. No charge for one dog, 50 cents a day for the second one. As previous reviewer said, nice concrete pads, tables, grass. Plenty of room for tow on the side or in front (we had a back-in). It was nice for dogs as big grassy field for them to walk. Seems to be the best for the area and would recommend.

Lovely campground with river sites & views, make your reservation early! If you take a pull through you will have a great view of the river. We made a late reservation & only had space #28 back-in available. It was on a corner so had lots of room with grass & flowers, and dogs loved it! So the issue with the trains. Yes close & loud, the farther into the park you go the louder it is (end). It didn't really bother us & we were closer to the front. If you don't like the noise don't stay here, enough said! The flowers & veggies the owners have planted in the park are great, well maintained & lots of grass, totally dog friendly. Read the other good reviews, we concur.

The reviewer from May pretty much says it all. Owner was very nice, lovely flowers, grass. Free Wi-Fi which was great. TV was via park's antenna connection, with 6 channels. Took a pull-through in the center--no shade trees, grass between sites with a table, good hookups. The back-in spaces that had shade had a mix of available sites and some had permanents (not an issue at all). This is a small, quiet campground, the dog fenced area was large but again no shade. Dogs were able to be off leash which was nice. There is a Shell station across the street; gas prices were high! We chose this park over going to Susanville because of the comments by a reviewer rating one of the parks a 1.

Price does not include $8 registration fee. We reserved on ReserveAmerica site in advance - easy. When you look at the ReserveAmerica map for sites (loop B) for RVs etc., we got the impression the sites on the outside (back ins) have a view of the river, they don't. Also, the pull-throughs were easier to maneuver and show on the map that they are on the inside. Not an issue because the road is narrow for both the back-ins and pull-throughs and neither have a view. You have to walk on a dirt path to the river. Nice but wear mosquito spray. Laundry consists of 1 washer and 1 dryer for whole park. There is 1 shower in Loop A and one in Loop B, separate from toilets. We stayed in B08 it was nice facing in with lots of room. Also, don't gas up in Klamath if traveling north on 97, wait and get gas at Travel Center/Casino, good prices and easy in/out. About 7 miles from turnoff. Nice drive to Crater Lake (35 miles or so). P.S. Weird set up for dump, it doesn't face up, it's side ways, so you may have a time putting in your hose. :)

Good spot for an overnight stay. As mentioned before it is on 95 but quiet at night. Free Wi-Fi, no TV, 2 bath/shower combo's - clean. Owner very nice and helpful. Nothing special here; no shade or trees,it was hot so stayed in motor home. It is about 3 miles north of town. In June 2013 we stayed in town at another RV park; this was a good one also with pool access, trees have grown. We just did this place because it was less $ and we were passing through to Oregon.

Second stay here on our way north (see June 2013 review) Very clean, free wifi, TV. Concrete pad was about $2 more than regular gravel site - we went for the extras. Just as nice as it was the first time last year. Will stay here again, especially since there is nothing else.

Nice park for overnight/passing thru. Restrooms & showers clean & excellent water pressure. Wifi was free & excellent. Did not use cable TV. Management/owner was very nice & helpful. We stayed in space 85, near restrooms....there is room for car or tow next to motor home but we didn't need to unhitch tow, there was just enough length for both (32 + tow). Park is in an industrial area, quiet at night, not much to see...long terms were parked around the sides (back ins), clean quiet. It was very hot, hardly any shade but fine for an overnight.

Rate includes tax, and no charge for our 2 dogs. Free Wi-Fi, no cable TV. They take checks or cash, no credit cards. Excellent park, we've stayed here about 3 or 4 times on our way to and from home in Prescott. Large wide spaces, clean. Ask for site #12, which has a covered gazebo over the table for some shade. Laundry, baths very clean, management very nice. Park is right off 60 but very little traffic noise at night as it is not a busy highway. It's located about 6 miles from Salome, blink & you are by it! Easy in and out, nice friendly seasonals (snowbirds). Only suggestion would be to put up a fenced area for dogs, plenty of room to do this. Think it would be nice for seasonals to have this.

First know that wifi is not free, $6 per day with better rates for longer stays. We are staying for 2 nights on the way from Prescott AZ to San Diego for Xmas. This is a mostly permanent trailer park (huge) with snowbirds...overnight spots are in a large parking lot area with gravel, not near the freeway which is good. Clean park, very nice people, employees. There is a fenced area for dogs to use which is near the overnight spots & great for our 2 dogs. Hookups are old but work ok & there were only 2 other over night visitors, so we had our pick of spaces (pull through)and lots of room. Some have tables some don't but you can move them if needed. Office closes early and we just drove in & security checked us in at the spot we picked-very helpful. This place is really not typical for short stays but it seemed to have the best reviews so we picked it, quieter than other parks which we saw with over night sites very close to freeway. No trees/shade, didn't use facilities, looked like a nice pool area.

Clean park; sites are on pavement with lava rock & some weeds growing in the rock in between sites with table. The reviewer from September that says sites are on gravel is not correct. The problem is there is no place for dogs. They have a walkwa, but it is gravel & hard on dogs' feet. Our space was an end one which was good because dogs could use the corner, and we had no one on one side. Suggest when you make a reservation you request an end site, this gives you more room also as sites are close together. Baths/showers were clean as was laundry. You can use hotel facilities also (pool, etc). Train noise when they come by at night is close and loud--no rhyme or reason to times. One night we had none, the next night it was 1am & 4am. Wifi & cable worked fine. You can walk to town/Safeway, & they have a shuttle service.

Really nice park, clean, clean, clean. Two fenced areas for dogs big! Sites are a bit close together, but it's the only game in town & it fits a picnic table. This park is not in Winslow-about 20 miles from it, near meteor crater, off the freeway exit-no freeway noise. Gated & fenced. Check in at Mobile station, they will give you coupons for MC. Wi-Fi not the best, but sufficient, no cable TV & not too many channels available. If you don't have satellite, figure on only getting one or two channels. Lots of RV's coming & going used for overnight stops only. Also the hookups are kind of strange, water, electric & sewer spread out so if you get a pull through with full hookups (call for a reservation) you may have to unhook your toad to line up-either that or have long electric/hoses. We would definitely stay here again.

Park is older & showing some wear, however restrooms/showers were spotless and seemed up to date. The spots are decent size, not a lot of room side to side, but it wasn't crowded when we were there so had empty spaces between sites (GC was closed). We took an outer one so we could walk our dogs in the field, unfortunately it was full of stickers & burrs, the dog area in front is very small & fence is too low for big dogs. Sites need some TLC as weeds coming through the gravel. Train tracks next door, freeway is close but not much noise from that, if you want quiet choose one of the KOA's otherwise you will hear train noise whichever park in town you choose. We would stay here again, but we are going to try another one, just to see. Wi-FI and cable excellent, management very nice, brought us a table when requested as most sites don't have them.

Just don't even bother to stay anywhere else, & when you look at the other park reviews you won't even consider the others. Very nice, clean park. Restrooms were spotless; laundry spotless also. They do not allow dogs on the grass, which is why it stays looking so nice. We walked our dogs in the empty lot next door. There are some full timers; everyone seems very nice including management. Safeway is within walking distance. The town has nothing, & don't bother to eat at the Mexican Restaurant, ridiculous prices and bad food. All other reviews on this park are just what we would say.

Stopped for overnight, The manager is very nice. The 2 "ponds" are the strangest colors with algae on the sides...didn't see any fish and wouldn't have fished due to the colors, there were 4-5 ducks. Pool looked very clean, didn't get in it. We had a 32ft motor home plus toad, we had to unhook and pull car to side, the pull through sites are not really long enough as you are instructed to leave enough room behind you for another motor home to get by. There are no picnic tables at the site, site is very wide, just not real long. Traffic noise from 40 is loud, but to be expected as it's a spot for just an overnight stay.

Stayed here for a week, right in the middle of town across from lake. This is run by the city; nice staff & check in gate for security but closes at 6pm for on site staff. Traffic is loud, and sites are close together. We had lots of tenters around us. Nothing against tents, but after a few days you get tired of looking at towels hanging on makeshift clotheslines. Also, each site has a fire pit, can get a little smoky with them all going at once. Our site had electric only and a community water faucet which was OK, but some people just hook up their hose and leave it like it's their own. There is a "honey wagon" that will dump your tank for $10; make a reservation for that at the front gate. They do have a dump station you can use on your way in or out. This park is old and could use a remodel on the facilities. Would not stay here again unless we could get a space with full hookups which appeared to have more privacy. We were able to get our space at the last minute so we couldn't get too choosy.

We stayed here for a week. Checked "not clean" on baths and showers as they are old and need to be redone. Don't look up in the light fixtures as the bugs are plentiful! Did use the showers a couple of times; not much privacy and don't know how often they were cleaned. Trash bin outside was overflowing and didn't see much in the way of maintenance over the week. Here's the thing: make sure you check out your site before you set up. They stuck us right in the middle of a motorhome and 5th wheel with NO privacy. The park is huge, and we would have changed sites but hubby was tired, and we didn't realize how close we were to our neighbors until after we set up. There were plenty of more private spots available; it was our fault for not requesting a change. Noticed as the week went by, they continually did this with each unit coming in. Guess they thought everyone wanted a close neighbor! The pool was closed, area was dirty and not well kept. Management was friendly enough; laundry was OK; park was quiet overall & not near enough to main 89 for traffic noise.

There are 3 different sites/prices available. We chose the pull through which sits up and has a view of the lake. We checked out the site (most expensive) which is the "closest" to the lake. It has a better view but is not close to the lake & is back in. The park is fairly clean. Bathrooms/laundry are older but clean. Price is too much for the sites, but they have a monopoly going as you can see Lake Meade. Management is nice/friendly. I would try another park in the town of Boulder City (which is nice), as this was nothing special.

Very clean, including laundry & baths. Manager is a clean freak & very nice. Not much shade as trees are young. After driving around Beatty we are so glad we chose this park, the others did not look too great. You can use the pool at the motel next door, which is a nice option. Right in the center of town, walking distance for some places. There is a nice park behind the motel which was nice for our dogs.

Nice campground, very friendly owner/manager. Our site was a pull through, not real wide but had a nice picnic table & shade tree. Unfortunately once you are in the motorhome the view out the front is mostly the gas station rear yard...but not that bad. There are not too many pull through sites so call ahead if you need one. The back-in sites are not very large. Good location in town, good dog walking area, nice store. We wanted to stay 2 nights but they were booked so could only stay one. Checked out the showers which were clean & private. However, they only give you one "token" for 5 minutes of hot water, then you have to buy more time if you want it. This we found tacky, but we think hikers/tenters were coming in to use them also as it states "public showers," so can somewhat understand, but they should let the people staying at the park use them without the token issue. I used the laundry, very clean. Free, good WiFi.

Nice, clean park. Stayed 2 nights. Good long sites for our motorhome with toad. Didn't use showers or bathrooms. Main rec area had coffee & muffins in the morning. Nice store with good supplies. 2+ miles south of town (Lone Pine). Would stay again & would request a site which is on the end toward the dry lake bed for a nice view.

Lovely park, very clean sites and wide/long, picnic table at each site. Great fenced dog area, which was a real blessing for our dogs who were tied up during a month long trip. This was our last stop on the way home, did one night, didn't use showers or bathrooms. Although it is behind a truck stop which is just off the 40 it is not noisy at all. Wi-Fi was excellent and free.
