  • REVIEW – This is a very well cared for property. Restrooms are clean with a capital C.  Pull through sites are seventy feet long. Our site #19 was very level and we only had to tighten the jacks against the driveway to be level. The entire campground is bordered by the Hoquam River and the owners have built several decks on the rivers edge for campers to use. Firewood is also provided free and all that is asked is that you use designated fire pits (not on every site) for your fires.  Cable was a new one on me. You hook up your cable as you always would but you need to place an Ifinity cable box (very tiny) between your TV input and the coax that lead to the TV from your coach.  One thing to note is you will very likely require 20′ of sewer hose depending on whether you leave your toad hooked up or not.

  • REVIEW – This is a fairgrounds RV park. There are no trees or protection of any kind from the sun.  You are basically on a large flat spot. There is plenty of room here so if you need a spot for the night it is very convenient for that and most likely available unless the county fair is going on.  Most people stopping there are parking for one or two nights.  The downtown of Cashmere is within 2 miles and has grocery shopping and quite a few restaurants. The camp hosts are jovial and very helpful. Nice folks.  Check in between 12 and 6 pm. Check out was 11 am but flexible. The sites are quite big and you have room for a 40′ coach and toad or even a stacker.  Reservations online are available but when you check in the hosts will let you pick your site. Sites are mostly level though I did have to put blocks under the driver side wheels because the site I picked was rutted.  Grass is sparse but keeps the field from being a dust bowl.  Wanatchee, Washington is 6 miles away and is a larger city with everything you need.

  • REVIEW – This park is a true gem. It is clean, clean, clean. Restrooms and showers sparkle, sites are very long 60.’  We fit our 40′ coach, dolly and toad on it with the toad head in.  They sprinkle the lawns nightly so move your lawn furniture to a dry location in the evening. Grass is green, mowed and well cared for.  You are about a 100 yds from the Wenatchee River from just about any site in the park. The Wenatchee is free flowing and quite beautiful. This is a great place to camp with your family.  Each site has an aluminum picnic table and a fire ring. As of this writing there is a burn ban. The park is gated and you are given an access pass to scan at the gate and gain entrance. The staff is very helpful albeit a little firm.  Our neighbor was given a warning that he had a door mat on the lawn at the entrance to his fiver. There is plenty of shade here but make sure you vet the site you choose by calling as ours had a tree three days prior to arrival. When we got here they had cut it down.
