Very nice park - everything was clean and worked well. Maybe a bit pricey (our rate reflects Good Sam discount). Unlike the previous reviewer, I think it's perfectly reasonable to pay extra for the waterpark, zip lines, jet skis, kayaks, etc. (it's not like they charge for wifi, sewer or 50A service like some campgrounds).
Giving this an extra point for being so affordable. One set of restrooms was locked and leaking water under the door. The other wasn't very clean and the trash hadn't been emptied in awhile. Not much to do, BUT it's quiet (if there are no events), pleasant, spacious and HUs work well. Only 1/2 mile to Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield National Park and as convenient to Atlanta as anything else we could find. Enter through Gate 1. Stayed several days and will definitely be back. .
Mostly level, shaded, quiet sites with electric HU only - water and dump station available. Several are long enough for a 35' fifth wheel and tow vehicle. Nice showers/restrooms. There are tent sites on the river, but RV sites are further back. Good cell reception and a few OTA TV channels. Couldn't enjoy the picnic table, fire ring or hiking trail because the mosquitoes were so bad, but that has been typical elsewhere too.
Newly refurbished and very nice for a fairgrounds. Portable toilet, no showers. The 9 RV sites were spacious and level, also 4 tent sites. First 24 hrs are free. Good cell reception, CBS is the only OTA station. Next to the river, so mosquitoes were bad, but we found that pretty much everywhere this year. Quiet except for an occasional train whistle. There's a Pioneer Village with a church, school, post office, store, blacksmith, log cabin and antique machine shed. Nice walking/biking trail and within walking distance of downtown.
Rate includes $5 daily vehicle fee. Nice campground. Most of the sites are pull-through, although length, levelness and tree clearance can vary, and many of the hookups are oddly placed. For $6 you can take a guided tour of Custer's house, barracks, commissary, granary, stables, infantry fort (all replicas of 1870s buildings), and Mandan earth lodges. I'd give it a higher rating, but partiers often blare obnoxious music on the nearby sandbars in the river until the wee hours and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
Riverside has two CGs - this review is for Bowl & Pitcher. It's a beautiful, quiet, peaceful CG with spacious sites. Price reflects out-of-state residency and reservation fee. You need to buy tokens for the shower: a quarter for 3 minutes and at least 30 seconds of that is waiting for the water to warm up.
Really nice for a fairgrounds CG - quiet, shady, level, very nice host. WARNING: If you are taller than 13' 4" do NOT follow the website directions "From the South on 99W" (turning onto SW 53rd from Philomath Blvd.) There's a low train trestle overpass.
No, it's not near a rifle range...it's near Shooter's Bar & Grill. Well, it's not really near anything, so it's quiet and peaceful except for the occasional train horn. Just outside town. No pull-throughs, but the sites must be 100' long, spacious and treeless, so even my grandmother could back in with no trouble :) Level, grassy sites and the nicest owner. Mosquitoes can be bad. Price reflects weekly rate.
Nice, quiet municipal campground with 28 RV sites (all full hookup, some 30 and some 50 amp). The other 50 sites are supposedly for tents. At first we thought there were 14 sites, each with a pedestal labeled E and W for electric and water. But each pedestal serves two sites (East and West). We got all set up, then discovered the power didn't work at our first site. They'd had a lot of rain, so the ground was a little soft and the RV sunk to one side after we put out our slide. Lots of mosquitoes. But I would camp here again, especially as there are not a lot of options in the area.
Liked this pretty, grassy, clean campground because we were in a quiet spot with lots of shade and no nearby neighbors. Hate to give it a low rating, but there were swarms of mosquitoes and no cable or 50A service to justify the price. Somewhat level sites; some are near a noisy road. Website says they have 65 63' long sites, but most are shorter. Despite being fairly empty, they put our 35' fifth wheel + 22' truck in a 45' spot. But they let us park the truck in the next (even shorter) site, so it wasn't a problem. Would definitely stay again. Check out the nearby bakery - yum!
Unlike most of the other nearby CGs (which are between the highway and the train tracks), this is quiet and peaceful. It can get very windy, though. Sites 6-8 good for big rigs. Price reflects out-of-state residency and reservation fee. Be sure to check out the pictographs.
Nice campground - quiet, level. They were just completing what looked like a new shower/restroom facility. We especially appreciated their help allowing us to stay extra days, despite being full, when I was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital.
Nice, clean, level, affordable, close to Safeway, very nice staff, and low-cost laundry. Our only complaint was a rather loud generator that ran for several hours in the middle of the night once(probably a Safeway delivery truck).
Perfection! Gorgeous views, walk to the beach, privacy, fairly spacious, nice bathrooms and showers, even a laundry. All for only $30/night (including reservation fee). Great AT&T phone and Verizon hotspot reception. Some people might not give a 10 rating to a CG without TV or WiFi, but it's a state park, not a KOA.
Lovely location, as are nearly all the CGs along this coast. But whoever indicated it is big-rig accessible was too generous. It took us 20 minutes to get to our site, and there were a few places I didn't think our 35' RV and pickup would clear. Although the web site and CG signage say the price for a non-riverfront site is $42, but we were charged $59. They didn't send a confirmation email or tell us this when we made our reservation, so it came as an unpleasant surprise. The mosquitoes were terrible, and some of the staff had quite the attitude.
