"Free dump station on 99"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
Easy off, easy on from 99 southbound. The free dump station was still available as of 10/27/2021. Non-potable water. We had no wait on a Wednesday afternoon. It was clean and usable. We didn't stay here other than to use the dump station. I did see some semis using the rest area (it was daytime) but did see signs stating no overnight parking.

"Very spacious, easy maneuvering"

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
I am sitting in our camp spot as I write, and the GPS coordinates are: LAT 37.2736, LONG -97.1723. I don’t know why Campendium doesn’t list the coordinates with the street address... sometimes it’s the only way to find a place! We found the park adequate. Sites are relatively level, and quite spacious. The ground is pretty saturated...

"Pretty good"

Benny, the host, was very thoughtful and nice to chat with. He offers weekly and monthly rates, if needed. Utilities are great (elec & water), and it’s one of the...

"Empty in the off-season"

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
I visited during the week on late October. Winter was arriving with cool (not cold) temps and a little rain. The campground was empty - perhaps myself and one other site was occupied. The site was level for parking my Sprinter van. Nice large site with a table and fire ring. I made a campfire each night with found wood nearby. AT&T cell...

"Not bad for a quick stop off of I5"

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
Yes, there are a fair amount of flies here, it was nice to be forewarned! Mid week during this season there are plenty of open sites. I took a walk and preferred the view of the lake along campsite numbers 20’s through 40’s. There is also someone running a generator at this end, and since those camp sites at the other end have hookups it’s...
