We had hoped to stay at this RV Park, and reserved a site the previous day. However, when we arrived and hooked up at our 30 Amp site, our voltage meter displayed 104 volts with NO appliances or anything on. We tested the system by briefly turning on our electric hot water heater, which dropped the voltage to 98. We tried plugging in to the adjacent vacant site. The same problem occurred. Although the camp host was very pleasant, he acknowledged that campers who "use a meter" have said that before (i.e. that the voltage is too low). Kindly, we explained we could not stay and risk our electrical appliances and we relocated to another campground in the area. - RDR

Hate to give a bad review but it's about the facts. That said, it's not a good park. The people who run it are very nice and helpful but we weren't happy at all. We were booked for several nights but only stayed one. The 30 AMP power wasn't strong enough to run the AC and the TV. Forget about a microwave or hair dryer. The WiFi was non-existent. There are maybe 12 sites in the place with 9 or 10 being old full timers. The laundry was being worked on and didn't go into the restroom. - 2VetsRVing

Office/owner was very accommodating when we asked to upgrade to a pull in site, looking at river. Sights were close together, but thankfully we didn't have anyone on our 'living' side and you can sit in front of your MH and enjoy the river. Nice doggie paths to walk near the river, our elderly dog couldn't make it to the dog park-too far away. Pet Fee. They charge you fully for your stay when you reserve. - Ramblin-Roll

Great stay at Riverbend, close to the river, close to lots of activities and things to do, quiet site, lots of RVs stay here. We had the lucky spot of having a drive through, easy parking for sure. - ASW

Beautiful well run campground. Great sites on and off river. Definitely would stay again...preferably for several days. - wjslam

This campground is all about boat access, because that's your only way to get in the water. There is a tiny swimming area that is really only good for small kids, but unless you have a boat there's no other water access here. The people were super nice and the facilities were clean. The campground is also pretty far away from Chelan, but there is a nice store in the campground for ice and firewood, etc. I thought the sites were too crowded, and there were a lot of tents on each campsite. - amandaHoops

This park, refurbished after a recent fire, is a great place to stay. The area is scenic and quiet. The lake provides a place to swim or fish. The facilities are in decent shape. - Dan C

We were camp hosts for this park. Three years ago the park was caught in the Carlton Complex fire, the largest in Washington's history (over 250,000 acres burned) and was nearly destroyed. Hundreds of ponderosa pine and shade trees were reduced to ashes. Since then, the park has been in recovery. New trees have been planted and the native sumac has returned. You can obviously still see the devastation but it now lends the park a very rustic atmosphere enhanced by the predominately tent camping site arrangements. With a few exceptions sites are gravel and mostly dry camp with nearby water. There are water/power sites as well and depending on location a choice of 50 or 30 amp. Very few FHU but there is a dump station. The main attraction is the namesake - Alta Lake with trout, kokonee salmon, and bass. There is a large marked swim area and a concessionaire stand for food, ice, and firewood. Personally, I feel the state mandated pricing is high as the park is still recovering from being wiped out. - DennisK

The rating reflects value for money. At 30$ for a dry site we feel this place to be way overpriced. We stayed after Labor Day, so one loop was already closed. Like one of the previous reviewers experienced, we got confused by the signage and drove past the camping loops into a residential area. Luckily we only have a Truck Camper. Good luck if you pull a trailer back there.
The sites turned out to be small and unlevel, offering no privacy. The Wifi was barely usable. The best thing was the quietness at night.
Water taps are around and a dump station is on the way out.
We will not come back. - TheSchweitzers

As many have stated, this is a family park.... We were looking for a one night stop and sort of found it... Noisy... $47 for a site with out dump is not a good rate... They pretty much have the only deal in town... Drove in the next morning for breakfast and found one more rv park, much better, but no advert on the road into town... Will not stay here again.... - Bob Nelson

As other reviewers have reported, the park itself is very good. It's a family oriented destination park and a nice one at that. My only complaint is with the person at the front desk. I reserved a site with satellite access but was placed in a site with a huge tree. When I asked to be moved two spaces down to a vacant spot with satellite access she said "we don't have satellite here." I tried to explain that I had a satellite dish on the roof of my rv and wanted a spot without a tree blocking and she looked at me like I was from another planet. So I asked again to move to the vacant space and she said it wasn't possible because of reservations. That space sat vacant for our entire three-day stay. - Astilbe46

We stay here over the Memorial Day weekend and the park was packed. The driveways are easy to navigate gravel and well maintained. The sites are mostly level, gravel and grass with a picnic table and fire pit. Some sites are shaded some are sunny. The WiFi was weak when the park was full but worked well on Monday night when most people had departed. The utilities are well placed and worked well. We will stay here again. - 2WArvers

This is our third stay here. We will use this park as our Northern Cascades base as long as we can get a satellite friendly site. Our site was a FHU and everything worked fine. The Wi-Fi was good enough for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. The bathroom and laundry facilities are clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only things this park lacks is recreational amenities. - Jerry S

Big rig friendly. We were there Labor Day weekend when the park was full, yet found it clean, safe, quiet and friendly. Great to be able to walk to town as well as the pioneer museum across the street. Good base for the east side of N Cascades NP. - barbielab

Really nice place to stay. The staff was excellent and friendly. When I arrived the site reserved was supposed to be satellite friendly but I just could not get reception due to trees. The staff worked and reworked the reservation sheet until they had arranged a different site for me that was great. Can't say enough about how helpful they were. The restrooms are private and kept very clean. The wifi was strong and consistent so all good. Sites are all on grass but seemed to be fine, with lots of space between sites. We will most definitely stay here again. - Phoenixaway
