The recent reviews are true! Only passing through 1 night, but would not leave our 43' 2016 motorhome to venture anywhere in the area. Creepy people (mentioned below) is right. We didn't even put the jacks down and hitched up and left by 8:30 the next morning. Glad to see this place in the rear view mirror! Staff was friendly in the hotel, but the whole place needs a major upgrade, removal of the run down trailers, and lots of general maintenance. Trash cans overflowing, lots of long term trailers with junk in and around campsite. Next door to a large truck stop and highway entrance. Noisy, and a train track is somewhere close by too. Would NOT stay here again. Any RVer looking for a nice place to stop, short term or long, should avoid this place. - 2SimsNanRV

This park is located on I90 East and behind a truck stop so it can be noisy. The good parts include 50 amp service, long pull through sites, free wifi, use of the pool and hot tub and free continental breakfast. The downside is that there are at least a dozen vehicles that cannot be moved due to flat tires, blue tarps, or other conditions. The police were here several times. Many of the people do not keep their sites clean and there are moldy straw bales probably used during the winter around the rigs. The free continental breakfast is marginal. There are 3 parks in Ellensburg and we would rate this as our 3rd choice. We will not stay here again unless it is cleaned up. - rolling homeless

Rate based on monthly stay. We were here for 3 months and if not such a hassle, we would have left for another park. A lot of full time residents and broken down trailers. A lot of very creepy tenants and people even sleeping in cars. How is it this is rated at 9.5 at GoodSam? This is why it is hard to determine a good park when they are rated like this.
A whole lot of freeway noise and worst of all, the wifi is absolutely horrible. If you need wifi, even for a brief time, forget it here.
Lots of overflowing trash cans. They have a single dumpster when they need three. So as trash pickup day approaches, you have a mound of stinky trash around the dumpster.
Many parks around here with much better facilities, go there.

This is a very clean well maintained RV park. The spaces are spacious with some shade. The park is very quiet with a country setting. The town of Ellensburg is only a couple miles away. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this park to anyone planning to stop in this area. - Holbnch

We found this RV park to be very nice, clean and quiet (a train once in a while). There is a ton of space between each site, which is SO nice to have because most parks cram you in like sardines. The sites are gravel with patches of (green) grass in between. I say 'green' because it has been so dry everywhere we've been in Washington that 'green' was a pleasant surprise. Utilities were placed well and worked fine. We were parked on the back row next to a pasture of horses and cows. It was very pleasant and relaxing. Wifi even worked pretty good. Although this was a delightful park we felt we were handed pages of rules. All, or most, of these rules are standard and common courtesy, but to have them all written out so that when you look at the page you wonder if you're allowed to sit outside or put your awning out. Of course you are, but the you get the drift. The other thing that was cumbersome was the entry gate. It's one of those gates that you put in a code and sit there for a few minutes while it opens sideways. There are quite a few speed bumps at the entrance where that gate is so don't get caught in it while easing over the speed bumps. The park is out in the country and near a relatively small town. I don't understand the need for this mega security gate that is in the way. - jomark

This is now a gated RV park which has drawbacks when you have visitors. Check in time is 1:00 which means you may have to wait somewhere like we did as our last park was only 1 hour away and we had to be checked out of there by 11. However, it is a clean, well maintained park and close to Ellensburg. We would stay here again as we have family here. The spaces are wider than in years past which is very nice. Great camp hosts. - rolling homeless

This older park is in the process of improving its facilities as most sites don’t have 50 amp service nor sewer hookups. However it is a pleasant woodsy setting next to the Yakima River. This is a small KOA which families can enjoy. Staff is friendly and very helpful. This is a good stop for travelers or those who want to enjoy nature with a river setting. Lots of tent sites. We enjoyed our stay here. - Roger H.

This is now our favorite RV park in the state. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the lot was wide, TV reception and selection choice with the cable was excellent. The park resides next to the Yakima River and even has a fly fishing business located on the premises (with a very personable young fishing guide). While located close to the freeway, we found the car noise minimal. A little on the pricey side, I noticed many of the other quality parks have raised their prices as well. It was mentioned that the park has a new owner and they plan on adding improvements in the off-season for next year; which I will be interested to see how they could possibly improve. - Scraig7001

We were here 3 years ago. My 8/15 review gives a more detailed, still accurate description of the park. As noted in that review, this KOA had a lot of the expected recreational amenities (pool, playground, etc.) for families. For me, the biggest change is the $10+ increase in rates. We again had a level, pull through, FHU site that had cable TV and, as requested, was satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi was good enough for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. The bathrooms and laundry facilities were clean. The bathrooms might be inadequate if all the tent site are occupied. The staff was friendly and helpful. I still see just aluminum can recycling. - Jerry S

As others have written, very nice but basic BLM campground. Site #1 was perfect for our 35' motorhome - we drove the "wrong way" in order to pull into site so we could see the water. As the area is very dry (sagebrush), having paved road and sites is very helpful. Reservations needed for sites with view but there are 4 sites for 1st come, 1st served. Most are level, all with picnic table and fire pits. No water is available; come with water tank full and waste empty. We did cross the road, near the tent camping area and hike up the hill. We did not see any, but this area could have rattlesnakes - just a word of caution. Big Pine is largest campground along Yakima River, but Umtanum BLM has a few sites for RVs that are gravel, not paved. Umtanum is a few miles towards Ellensburg and has a bridge across the river with a nice trail along the creek. Overall, excellent value and most scenic of Yakima or Ellensburg parks. - BandD

A nice overnight or in our case, almost a week. Immediately off the highway, sites and roads are paved. Only the first few sites have a view of the river and shade and one side of the campground is next to the highway but traffic is minimal at night. To make us fulltime rv'ers feel at home there is a train across the river but no horns. Several sites for big rigs and swing room should not be an issue. We did have to dodge some curbs backing into our site but that was self inflicted because we wanted a river view. There are no utilities and no water, only pit toilets. As another reviewer mentioned, nothing to do in the immediate are but fish or read a good book. No Verizon. - PBuds

This BLM campground is located right on the Yakima River, sandwiched between the highway and the river and a railroad on the other side. Traffic died down at night and there was only one train rumbling through about every two hours.
The sites are all paved and very level. Some are very large. Most are in the open sun, only a few are somewhat shaded. Reasonable space between the sites which offers some privacy. We were surprised to find this campground well booked (most sites are reservable) for the upcoming weekend. Well, it was fishing season and there is a boat launch right from the campground.
Pit toilets are available but we couldn't locate a water tap.
Overall excellent value for money and we will stay again. - TheSchweitzers

Nothing fancy, but nice overnight stay. Accommodating staff. Not much around. We stayed overnight in July 2018. Price reflects Passport America. Pull thru site with 30amp FHU and no wifi. 4 bars Verizon LTE. Easy in and out, and not crowded. Camp store onsite, but nothing much around town. Called in advance to make sure there was room. Called again around 4pm to let them know we would be in around 8pm. Manager was very accommodating. We pulled into the parking area in front of the store and called again as we had been instructed. Manager met us at the store for check in. RV area is a little further past the store, but easily accessible. Site was dirt/grass and slightly unlevel. Only a few other rigs around and we were told to pick a spot, so we had a choice for space, but if the row was full, it would be tight quarters. Good view of the lake, and the bugs, but that's what you get near water! We did not use any of the facilities. Signs nearby for a petrified forest. Would have checked it out if in the area longer. - Unknown_Normal

We had a spacious pull through with full hookups. Registration was in the store which appeared fully stocked. There weren't many overnighters when we were there, but if there were, some sites might seen a little tight. There was a good view of the Columbia river from our site and a number of OTA tv stations. And you're just down the road from the Gingko petrified forest museum. Though quite rustic I would definitely stay here again. - frmOregon

Upon arrival, had no idea where office was. One of ther other guests told me to go to the grocery store, which was closed already by 4 PM, and knock on the door, and they would let me in and register me. There is one not-very-clear sign in front of the grocery store, but behind some trees and not near the road. Very skinny pull through sites with good water/sewer. Only 30A electric available. Our site had two large trees, one on each side, making things very tight. I had a pull-thru but had to back out because I couldn't make the turn onto the road because of the trees. It struck me as one lady who was trying to keep a grocery store and campground running all by herself. For a one night stop while traveling, it sufficed, but no TV and no WiFi.I would probably not stay here again. - Don Gagnon

We stayed in the upper loop and much quieter... Good nights sleep... Clear sky and saw the space station fly over.. Will stay again... - Bob Nelson

The rate was $45 but there was an additional $15 in nonrefundable, one-time fees. You cannot check in a minute before 2:30 p.m. and the "office" doesn't open until 1:00. It is a long walk from the water front sites to the water. It got so windy we had to close our slides for fear the awning would rip off. - Psushu

The park is good for boating and PWC campers. We group camped with friends with a boat and PWC's and the included launch facilities are very good. Close to main loop. The main campground is above the river and has a decent view of the river looking east. View sites are considered Premium, and cost $4 more. The wind is a known factor to us. It can be unpredictable, since some days it will show up for a few hours, half a day, or even not at all. You don't want to leave things out due to the wind if you leave the site alone. This campground is good for early season camping since it is east of the mountains, and warms up early. Almost all sites have full hookups. Summer highs can be in 90's, so AC is used then. Helps to have a "slinky" sewer hose support for dumping at your site, since sewer port is above ground level. Overall we like the place for our watersports. - Tchkan
