Not for VanLifers. It’s one of those membership campgrounds, it’s in the woods, but on top of each other. If big rv’s and never coming out of your rig is your gig, then you might like it. Lots of full timers. Super clean and well maintained, pretty expensive for a 1 night stay. My $.02! We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park, located in a residential neighborhood with tall pine trees all around. The roads were gravel passable for 45 MH w/tow. Sites are gravel and a bit unlovely, but jacks too care of that. Onsite staff was friendly, this is a membership park and they are not happy to have return travelers, this was our 2 night in a year and Corporate says we can't come back without buying a membership. Otherwise we would use this campground for our annual trip east. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Easy to get in/out. Interior roads are very dusty gravel and sites are a mix of gravel and dirt. Utilities are well placed and worked fine. Pay WiFi for one dollar per day was OK most of the time. Strong Verizon signal. The facilities are nice but most of the sites are extremely close together. Laundry, restroom and showers were fine. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

This is NO resort. Another example of owners misrepresenting their facility with the word "resort." Quite frankly we have stayed in KOA Journeys there were nicer. The sites are not level, the sites are dirt, the roadways are dirty and very dusty, the picnic table was a sagging plastic. To think, we bypassed the Spokane KOA where we had stayed in past to go to this "resort" and were packed in just as tightly. For this price we won't be back even if passing through.

Although many of the sites are spacious, ours was not. If we were staying longer, I would have asked for a different site. Our door opened onto the neighboring site's utility hook-ups! We barely had room for our stairs to open and no space for our rug or chairs. Very disappointed. That being said, the club house, pool and spa are all nicely maintained. Will I stay again? If I am passing through and need a place for a night or two, maybe. If you are staying in this park, avoid B-7. I do believe it is the worst spot in the entire park. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

If you're looking to visit Spokane, this is a great place to stay. However, I found it very average, and only stayed here because of the Coast to Coast rate. It was tricky to navigate, the sites aren't level and required several blocks. The sites are very close together, the park is looking a bit run down, but it was clean.

If you're going to Spokane, spend some time downtown at the riverfront park. The waterfalls are nice and the grounds are well maintained (even though they are doing some construction for a while to upgrade the grounds)

Very nice RV park friendly staff, Trees were trimmed maintenance didn't appear to be neglected. Google Fi signal was ok T-mobile was marginal and we needed to boost it for our hotspot. Park did not provide wifi you can purchase wifi but apparently it is weak. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a membership campground that allows outsiders in when space is available. At first I thought the price was high. For the amenities, it is worth it if you use them, and I did. They have a pool, whirlpool spa, and sauna. Laundry is nice. They also offer free coffee and popcorn. It's a nice setting with lots of trees, and sites spaced out.

Not exactly sure on the price as we reserved through Coast To Coast and didn't do the math! Nice park. This is a membership park and we stayed via Coast to Coast 26-29Jul. Our spot was a pull through but I didn't think I'd be able to turn out without dragging the side of my coach (45') through some trees inside the turn. So I backed out which was no problem. Good level site with room on both sides. Satellite hookup wasn't a problem and Verizon signal was adequate. Wifi available in the office. Good facilities. Pool looks beautiful. We would stop again when passing through Cheney. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a membership RV resort with a lot of amenities and very kid friendly. It is older and showing it's age, but is well kept, clean, and quiet. Roads are a combination of asphalt and gravel. Sites are packed dirt, with a little grass. Picnic table at each site. All hookups worked well and are convenient. A lot of trees for shade. Sites are close together with not much privacy. All the utilities worked well and are convenient. ATT and Verizon worked well. Showers and rest rooms are clean and well maintained, however 2 or the 3 men's showers were closed. . Pool, hot tub, weight room and sauna are clean and inviting. The kids are ever present. Laundry open 24 hrs, there are 8 each washers and dryers - $1.25 to wash, $ .25 for 5 min to dry. Employees are courteous and friendly. Pricey if not a member. Would stay again. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Favorite place near Spokane, WA. We've stayed here each time we come to Cheney and the Spokane area. It's a great "rest stop" after leaving Seattle, when heading east. The park has lots of well-trimmed trees, allowing for clearance for high motor-homes and 5th-wheel trailers. The trees are trimmed high also to accommodate satellite receivers. The park has many pull-through sites with full hook-ups. Park is well-maintained, with a pool, recreation areas, miniature golf, playgrounds, etc. and the staff plans many weekend activities to keep campers busy. All that aside, it is also a very quiet place to just hang out. Many sites have nice lawns, shady trees and picnic tables. The roads are gravel, as are the sites, and driving through with any size rig rates from easy to manageable, depending on the length of your RV. It has good access to shopping in Cheney, and nearby Eastern Washington University, and to Spokane, or even Coeur d'Alene in nearby Idaho. WiFi is average for most parks, but doesn't reach all the sites. They charge for WiFi and for cable (Dish Network satellite) TV. T-Mobile service was marginal at the campground. As you head up Thomas Mallen Road, the entrance is the SECOND DRIVEWAY you come to (with the big rock). The first with a gate, is the exit. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We haven't been here for a couple of years. I had forgot how nice this RV Resort is. Site was out in the open, no trees, which we prefer, so we were very happy. but they do have sites with shade. The full hookups worked very well. Sites are clean. Ladies in the office are very nice and all smiles even when things are a tad messed up. We stayed here on a ROD Membership. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were given two lists for TV channels. One on the flyer for the campsite and one on a sheet in the flyer. Neither one was correct for the channels, and some channels didn't come in at all. The people were friendly, the site level on gravel. We stayed here before with free wifi, but now they charge $1.00 for the wifi. We didn't take it because it wasn't good when we had it before. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We purchased a full membership a few years back and paid thousands of dollars for this membership. This is because we loved it! They cooked meals, (for a fee), had karaoke, kids face painting, activities, dancing, duck races, you name it. It was a FUN resort. Now, this resort is going downhill. No internet unless you go to office, hot tub was broken last night, mud encompassing drive throughs when it rains, very few activities, no meals being cooked, asking members to bring their own and have a pot luck. How many people go to a resort to "cook" to serve others? The main gate with lock was hit and is now removed. They are finally mowing, but the golf course green has splits, tears and is ugly. Different fees are being charged to others with same membership. Yes, they refund, but this happened twice on two different occasions. Last year there were teens after 10pm hitting lights on the golf course area. This is a safety issue as they were not staying with anyone, they skipped through the gate. They were in the pool bullying little kids. I told them to leave the pool and leave the kids alone, and I filed a complaint, not sure of the results. My sons will not bring grand kids here. They in the past looked forward to the pancake breakfast, now it is cereal and muffins, all cold stuff. Is there no one here to cook or do the activities? We have been to other KM resorts and they have been updated and are great, but this one needs a lot of work. They hired someone to come in and fix things, and they were being done, now that person is no longer here, why I do not know. He was the only one fixing things and making the positive changes. But we found that the prior manager was put back in place, so we do not see any positive changes for the future which makes us not want to be at the resort. Even some of the picnic benches have splits and if you sit on them you will break them. We had to get one from the other site that was vacant as we did not have one. They need replaced. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Although a little more than a mile off I-90, it is easy to access. This campground has many amenities for kids [and adults]. However, if passing through for a one or two night stay, it is a bit pricey unless taking advantage of the facilities. Our site was tight and almost too short for our 35' motorhome and still attached tow vehicle. The picnic table was not clean. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.
