This is one of the nicest KOAs we’ve ever been too. Sites are spacious and level and you don’t feel packed in like sardines. They have all the amenities expected. The only negative to the location is the proximity to the oil fields and the smell that rolls in from the methane burnoffs. Obviously, the owners of the KOA can’t do anything about that, but if you’re sensitive to overwhelming sulphur smell, I’d recommend giving it a pass. It’s doesnt smell all the time, but we woke up both nights to the smell and being from a non-oil state, had no idea what was happening the first night.
Rockhound is one of the best State Parks we’ve ever stayed at. The sites are spacious and really well-kept. The bathroom is spotless. Showers were closed when we were there, due to Covid, but where in the same building as the bathroom and seemed very nice. This park has lovely little walking paths throughout and hiking trails for rock gathering. There are rattlesnakes in the area, though we didn’t see any and were told they don’t show up much in the campground. The park hosts were lovely, and the group campsite looked awesome! We would love to camp here again!
Wonderful little pull-off spot! Vault toilet, picnic tables, trash and recycling bins. Parking is a large gravel lot-limit is one night. Only one other vehicle when we were there. Little to no Verizon service depending on where you stand. 🤣
Dispersed camping on National Forest Land. There’s a mile of gravel and then another half mile of dirt road, but if you go slow, most vehicles should be fine. We towed a 30ft travel trailer with no issue. The dirt road dead ends at a large spot with easy turn around. There are off shoots of the main road to other camp spots, but we didn’t venture down to any of those. No facilities, so make sure you have enough water and power to get you through. Gorgeous night sky for stargazing! 36.7550, -118.2540
Gorgeous primitive campground nestled among the tall pines. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings, but no electric, water or sewer onsite. There’s no potable water so make sure you bring what you need. There are two vault toilets. Campsites will fit a variety of needs, including longer campers, though only a couple of sites would fit the “big guys”. Sites are first come, first served. Note we had zero cell service on both Verizon and AT&T. Very pretty, clear river runs through the campground and is a popular spot for kayakers/paddle larders and fishing.
Hidden just off the main road, this lovely park and RV campground is completely unexpected. Don’t let the industrial feel of the initial area scare you off, down the hill you’ll find a park in the gorge! The Rock Creek winds through the park past picnic tables and covered gathering areas. There are two playgrounds, multiple shelters, a handicapped accessible fishing pier, and biking/walking path. The RV park is open April 1-Nov 1 for campers only, no tents. Sites are gravel but level and there’s water and electric at each site. There is no dump onsite, but Twin Falls has a free one a mile away, so as long as you plan accordingly, you should be fine! Cost in 2020 was $20 per night, cash or check only. We had exceptional service for both Verizon and AT&T. Be sure to check out the waterfalls just outside of town when you visit! Both Shoshone Falls and Perrine Coulee falls are less than 15 minutes from the park!
Such a great state park! We stayed for four nights and had a lovely spot off the main loop with a huge grassy center “island” ringed with campsites. Our spot backed up to beautiful trees and was nicely situated to not feel crowded. Short walk down to the beach, close drive to the much larger (and more crowded) Deception Pass State Park, and to the Anacortes ferry terminal with service to the San Juan Islands.
