Great waterfront site at a great rate. Easy walk to beautiful lake. Sites are good size. Antenna TV worked well. Some road noise due to construction at dam. Bathrooms and showers were fine, just a tad old, dark and somewhat dusty. I saw zero spiders but there were some cobwebs on the ceiling. We stayed 2 nights and at that price with that view, I'd stay again. We camped at North Overlook Campground, Lake Red Rock in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby Pella is fun. Dutch Bakery. Meat store. Chocolate shop. Avoid site 38 if you have a big rig. It is at an awkward angle, requiring multiple attempts to get in and out of site.

On entering the Park, we were greeted enthusiastically by volunteers and loaded up with materials about local events and other things we could use. Very nicely done! Rated bathrooms very low because of large amounts of cob webs at the ceilings and floors. Toilets were clean, but showers had lots of soap scum built up. Grounds were relatively clean, but did notice scraps of paper everywhere. Looks like papers and other refuse was just mowed over with no effort made to pick it up before mowing. We camped at North Overlook Campground, Lake Red Rock in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Access to bike trails was great. Access to beach was great. Volunteer staff was very good about answering questions and helping out with local information. Try to get a site away from a moderately heavily traveled road that goes over the dam. Traffic noise was noticeable but not much traffic late at night.

Overall Rating:

Bits of litter about, roads are narrow but doable. Some sites need a bit of leveling. Some sites have lots of shade, all sites have shade at some time during the day. Helpful hosts and rangers. Had an electrical issue and they had an electrician at our site with 10 minutes, very impressed! Decent spacing, not as much as some COE campgrounds but enough that you didn't feel as you were intruding on your neighbor. We would definitely stay again if in the area. It was quiet and dark for good sleeping. We camped at North Overlook Campground, Lake Red Rock in a Fifth Wheel.

Pella has some nice shops, a great bakery and a few good restaurants plus some chain restaurants. I enjoyed the quilt shop, The Quilted Windmill.
