Massive RV site in a very remote area. Restaurants, stores, etc. are 10-20 miles away. Sites are cement but have severe side slopes. With auto jacks my passenger side wheels were off the ground. Cable channels very limited and reception was poo; over half the channels were too poor to watch. Zero AT&T reception in this park, and zero to one bar reception for the last 17 miles after we turned off I-64. At $80+ per night this site is WAY, WAY overpriced. They have some cheaper $50+ gravel sites for units up to 30 feet, in a heavy wooded area, but they looked tight, unattractive, and some sites looked difficult to put slides out. No pop- ups, B-class or tents allowed. We only stayed here because it was University of Virginia graduation weekend and all RV camps close to Charlottesville were fully booked. Would not stay here again.
View from half a dozen prime sites(P#s) is phenomenal. Other sites have limited or no view. AT&T reception is weak to non existent. Very peaceful. As others have mentioned, this park is at the top of a very steep, narrow dirt road about 1/2-3/4 mile long. If you meet another large RV coming in the opposite direction, it is almost impossible to pass on most of this road. If both are towing a toad, someone is going to have to unhook and back down the hill. If two big fifth wheels meet, good luck with that one.
This park is a mix of long term/permanent RVs and one night stops. Not a lot to do locally, and only fast food outlets available. If you want to eat out you need to drive 10 miles for Ruby Tuesdays and Applebee's, not many other options. Our cable TV picture was mediocre quality. Staff were friendly.
This park is without fault. Sites are 60' by 20', level concrete pads. We had a riverfront site, which you drive into, so you face the water. Nice grass area between the front of the coach and the river, where we were able to set up table and chairs. The view is incredible, tons of wild birds, and we saw eagles every day. Staff are great and very friendly. Small activity centre for kids, plus swimming pool. Good location, close to everything, yet far enough off the highway to be quiet and peaceful. Would definitely recommend, and will stay here next time. Our rate reflects a 7 night stay (seventh night free) on a riverfront site inc all taxes, with Good Sam discount.
There appears to be about 12 riverfront sites and twelve non riverfront sites. When we visited the riverfront sites were full. So we camped in a non riverfront site. These all appear to severely slope down from back to front. Despite using jacks at maximum extension at the front, our RV was still sloping forward. Our water pressure was very low. Cable did not work on our site, and I noticed several sites did not even have cable hook ups. Lots of permanent campers, some of which are shabby and let this park down. Concrete slabs range from 30-48 feet. Which means that most 40+ rigs leave no room for parking a tow. Most people park across the front of their rig, half on the slab and half on the grass. It had been raining before we arrived, and noticed this practice makes deep muddy ruts in the grass here. If you are a light sleeper, this park is on the side of a major interstate, extremely noisy all night long.
The campground is like an open field, and has 100 yards of main road frontage without a perimeter fence, and with no landscaping acting as a visual barrier. The first site we were offered was only 10 yards away from the busy road, very unappealing! We were moved a few spots, but we were so disillusioned that we had no desire to get out our chairs, tables, grill etc. Most of the campers in the back of the park appear to be permanent, or long term rentals, and there seems to be some reluctance by the hosts to allow short term renters to camp back there, despite asking. Wouldn't recommend or go back there. Cash only.
This is a great RV park, with some reservations. There is nothing to fault the excellent 60' pull through sites, with one pull through at almost 100'. In a beautiful, scenic location this park would rate a 10. However, the park sits on busy, noisy highway 101, in a busy industrial town. For me the park lacks character, and the atmosphere is cold. The Casino was likewise, lacking atmosphere, as was North Bend and Coos Bay.
Nice park, with friendly enthusiastic staff. Good 50' pull through sites, with good landscaping. The downside is that it's positioned between two noisy roads, with enough permanent working RVers, that noise is a big issue. Great location for the Avenue of Giants, and the beautiful Victorian Ferndale.
This is one of the nicest, well maintained RV parks I have seen. It is immaculate. 70' pull-thoughs, 80' drive-ins facing the small river/quiet golf course, and large back-ins. Quiet spot in farmland location, but only a few minutes drive to the town center. The owner is enthusiastic about explaining all the things to see and do, and it will take several fun packed days to see and do them all. We came for two nights and will need to stay several more to see everything we want to see. Cash only, no credit cards. They have a great fall/winter program. $89 per month, full hook up storage in one of the regular RV spots, plus $10 per night if you want to use your RV for a few days during that time.
The management are a 10, really helpful. The RV site is OK for an overnight stop. Be aware that most of the pull-throughs appear to be permanents, as are most of those staying throughout the park. I called ahead earlier in the day and reserved the last one. You will need extra long sewer connections, 3 sections, to hook up here. Hoquiam appears to be a small, quiet town, with nothing to make you want st stay longer.
Elwha Dam RV Park is listed on RV Park Reviews as 6 miles SE of Port Angeles, it is 6 miles NW. Likewise Salt Water RV parks are 9 miles NW, not 6 miles SE. Both parks are very nice. Elwha has full hook ups, including 12 new 70' pull throughs, which are very wide, level and perfect. Wi-Fi but no cable. Saltwater is a beautiful state park, with several large pull throughs, 12 deluxe back ins with direct ocean views, and a separate section of shaded private back ins with no view. Water and electric hook ups only. Plenty of space and ideal for kids. No access after 8 PM.
The danger here is that you rate the town and not the RV park. Gig Harbor is a beautiful, peaceful town with Mt Rainier as a backdrop. The town rates a10+. The RV park rates a 6? The park is small, cut into a hillside, half a mile from town, with very tight interior access and exit roads. RV Park Reviews lists it as 22 miles from Seattle, but it is 50 miles. Some of the pull through sites are reasonably wide, while some (13,13c) are really close. Some have sewer hook ups 35 feet away! Back ins likewise can vary from reasonably wide to your awning touching the next camper. Verizon is spotty, AT&T average, RV park Wi-Fi spotty to no reception. Staff is pleasant, but be warned, it appears to be under new Korean ownership, who although trying to be helpful, have very limited English language skills. Add this to the new management, who are super nice, but have zero knowledge of the area. Expect little in the way of directions to the park, or to tourist hot spots. Other than that, it appears to be the only show in town!
The owners took a narrow wedge of land between the railroad track and the river, and converted it to an RV park in 2006. The RV park is only 100 feet wide and 200 yards long. The PRO's are the road inside the park is new, the showers/laundry are spotless, the river view is great. The manageress,is a sweetheart. The Con's are, the site is built on the entrance road to the City Works Dept, and the access road for all that traffic runs through the park, within feet of the RVs, commencing at 7 AM SEVEN DAYS A WEEK! There is considerable road noise from highway 12 which runs on the other side of the river. The rail cars are an eyesore, and are only 50+ feet from your RV, and on the days that the train comes in, which is not too often, it arrives at 6 AM blasting it's horn yards from your RV.
This RV park is crazy overpriced at $68, for a mediocre park. But the location 2 miles outside Jackson makes you a captive audience. You can use the hotel pool. Sites are gravel, some pull throughs are on the short side. Two different teams of staff, Happy and Grumpy, you decide which one you got.
Best campground we have ever stayed in! Wide sites, wide roads, grass plots between sites. Hot jacuzzi, nice pool, gym, lounge, library. Faultless. 20-30 easy drive into Boise. We loved it. How we wish all sites were like this.
Not very impressed. As previous reviewers have stated, most of the small sites are full time families/workers with many in construction. It is 50 yards from I-29 in a business area. Very dusty site, hardly any grass, and after it rains there are huge puddles and muddy conditions. The few pull throughs are tight with hardly any space between sites. The couple who run it are friendly. But without a discount for Passport America, the $36 fee seems way too high. But what do I know, they were nearly full!
20 minutes from down town St Louis. Immaculate site, big wide concrete pull throughs. The couple who run it are real friendly, but they are leaving the end of September 2012. Would give it a higher rating, but it's close to the active and busy rail line, and the price without a Good Sam discount is $56. They have a bar/restaurant on site with an extensive menu, but the Saturday night we were there it was almost empty and the dull canned parlor music meant zero atmosphere.
