The Lowe’s overall rating (based on value for the money,
quality of amenities and utilities, site suitability and what
we believe other RV’ers in our situation would be looking
for) = 5 out of 10 stars

Sharing a faucet with a neighbor AND water sprinkler – not good

A nice view from our site, but folks have to walk their dogs in front of our coach to get to the grassy area at the left

 

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This is not a destination park – it’s noisy and windy, since it sits on
top of a hill on the edge of town.  There’s an airport nearby, but not
much noise from there.  Most of the noise is from traffic passing by
on the highway just down the hill.  The staff was friendly and
helpful when we arrived.

Road and site access?
All gravel interior roads and sites.  Access into our pull-in site was
easy, but some of the others in the middle of the park presented a
challenge for folks trying to park larger 5th wheel rigs.

Condition of sites?
Site spacing was tight, typical of private parks around here.  Our
gravel site was narrow, but long enough for the RV and car.  We
got one of the better sites in the park – pull-in with a view of the
town and surrounding mountains.  There were no shade trees at
our site, but sites in the middle of the park had large trees.  Most
had a small grassy area on each side.  We had to do some leveling,
but did not need our blocks.  Most sites looked fairly level.
Utilities were “back-to-back” at our site, so we had to share
utilities with a 5th wheel next door – don’t like that!

Utilities offered and their quality?
The full hookup 50-amp power was strong, and the water
pressure was surprisingly good considering that two RV’s were
hooked up to one faucet.  We had 5 bars of Verizon, so phone
and internet connectivity were excellent.  There was no cable
service here.  The park’s WiFi was very slow – needs to be
updated!

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Picnic table only.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
This place scored well here.  The individual bathrooms with
showers were in the office building, and they were nice and
clean.  The laundry area (not a separate room) contained 3
washers, 3 dryers and a tiny folding table.

Pet friendly?
Not at all.  A small park in town with no access to trails is not
dog-friendly.  There was one small grassy area, but
unfortunately it was right in front of our site (B9) so folks
were forced to walk through the front of our site to get there.
We love dogs, but not the traffic through the front of our site.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
No trails out of the campground, and since it’s in town there
aren’t really options unless folks want to deal with vehicle
traffic.

Groceries & other services nearby?
We liked the little town here, most restaurants and grocery
outlets were within a few blocks.  There was a Safeway and
another grocery store, and a few restaurants that we did not
check out.  Kind of a quaint place that could supply
everything we needed during our stay.  No large services for
RV’s here that we could find.

Comments:

Minus:
Small campground located in a busy area.  Fairly noisy and
too tight for our liking.  Situation of sites terrible, forcing
folks to walk through other sites to walk dogs or access other
areas.

Plus:
A decent view from our site, good utilities, nice bathrooms
and excellent Verizon coverage.
