Spring and fall

It’s best in the spring and fall. It’s nice and quiet and the spots are not too close to each other. Staff is nice and grounds are clean.

I didn't stay. Can't believe it has 5 stars!

I guess if you stayed on the water it might be nice but the campground itself was pretty bad. 1st they have blocked any phone signal so even with my WeBoost I could not work from here. 2nd the flies were horrible. 3rd my site was across from overflowing trash can. 4th the hookups are on the wrong…

Very windy

I don’t know how often it happens but the night was very windy. We might have been unlucky but I saw so many trees lean the same angle, meaning the valley could be the path of wind and tend to blow strong. If you plan to camp, not RV, watch out!

Awesome primitive camping

This is a primitive campground, no showers only vault toilets and restroom near visitor center ( 2 min walk from campground) both decently clean. Water for washing dishes is available. Spots are not close to each other so there is privacy. It is small, quiet, surrounded with beautiful views. Good…

Convenient, shady respite

Easy on/off from Hwy. 99. Nice management. Spaces large and lots of shade coverage. Close to hwy but far enough that road noise isn't onerous. Train passes through once at night time, bring earplugs. Clean, tidy, well kept campground.

Little bit of green along the river

Probably COVID related but this park is under utilized and under attended. The shower is of if you throw in quarters and close your eyes. It could use some TLC but was a quite place to stop for the night.

Not all spots have shade.

Everything you could want!

We visited on a Tuesday in late April and there was only one other couple on the opposite end of the campground. There's also a very nice attendant who lives on site who wen saw the next morning and recommended a hike that is accessible from the camp that hike is very nice but not very shaded. I…

Immaculate, Interesting, Noisy

This happened to be the closest place to stop when I needed to rest one night on a coastal trip; as a 60-something wildlife specialist, I'm not into motocross/ATVs, and would otherwise not have stopped here. It was very convenient, however, cheap, and surprisingly interesting, so this will probably…

O’Neil Forebay Waterfront

We stayed in site 6 which was right on the water. Beautiful views and plenty of space between sites. Pretty busy on weekends but that’s typical this time of year. Water/Electric hook ups. No showers (we are self contained so it was perfectly fine for our 7 night stay) camp host was very nice and…

Beautiful, Magnificent ... But No Camping

YOU CANNOT CAMP HERE. However, this gorgeous state park has dozens of beautiful trails winding through cattle country and down along streams and ponds in the Dinosaur Point area.

NO WATER. Note that there is no safe potable water at the park, so if you're hiking, bring plenty to drink.

Campground

Nice little campground. Best is 12, then 1, then 3. 2 and 11 are small and uneven ground...the rest are ok. Best time is off season and week days. Can use dump station at Basalt campground.

Campground early March

There are two campsites and upper and lower. During off-season only the first campsite is open. Very quiet and very spacious. Lots of elk in the area. Clean with flush toilets and paid showers. RV dump station. This area is also one of the very few you will see the yellow billed magpie.

Campground

All sites lay along the lake. This place is very popular with fishermen. Campground is rustic and could use some TLC. $20/night. Seniors save an extra $2.

Nice view and perfect for fishing

We were able to set our poles and walk back to our campsite. Great place to let the kids run around.
