Starbuck / Lyons Ferry Marina KOA Reviews

Campground Reviews

This place was great! We used it as a stopping point on a big road trip so it was empty and quiet. The woman who I spoke with on the phone for the reservation was very nice, helpful and accommodating for our late check in.

Perfect 2 day getaway only 75 miles from home with great amenities but for boating/fishing enthusiasts it would be perfect if they can afford it for boatslip plus camp spot. I assume these rates are set by KOA so do not blame it on current owners/operators as they were very nice and welcoming. Diana Flinn not LInn!

The managers are very nice and the location is beautiful. The campground is well cared for, but the spaces are cramped and we had to drop our toad in the boat launch parking lot before backing into our site. It is well suited to the fishing crowds. Power went out in middle of night and there was no one policing noise after quiet hours.

It was good, other than the power went out for 5 hours during the night and we got real cold. I'd recommend warning visitors that that is a potential. I would have brought or bought more propane for my small portable indoor heater... Food at the restaurant is good but expensive. Only game in town so prices are high. Showers were nice but needed a little maintenance.


We are sorry about the unexpected power outage. Not something that happens frequently. Always wise to come prepared for such emergencies.

Cute KOA with beautiful scenery. Site was long enough. Dog run area is quite small.

Great helpful, friendly staff. Campground was beautiful, grassy, clean, quiet, relaxing. Great location, dramatic canyon and river views. Close to Palouse Falls.Very enjoyable, highly recommended!

We had a good experience at KOA in Starbuck/Lyons Ferry. The early morning fishing neighbors were also late night people. The noise was a bit much from that large group.

Perfect weather, fishing, and spotless bathrooms and brand new laundry facilities!

Nice place but there seems to be more interest in the marina and restaurant than the Kia side of things

Had a great time. The camp was in great shape. Thanks

I probably wouldn't recommend this site to friends or family because no one I know is planning to head out that way!However, I have to say that our tent site was delightful, with plenty of shade, a nice table, and a privacy fence. The grass was well tended and a welcome substrate.My only suggestion would be to fill in the depression where the fire ring had been removed-- it was a tripping hazard.

We had a very nice stay. We stayed just the one night to see the Palouse Falls which is a short drive away. We observed the staff making improvements to the campground in an effort to make it even more enjoyable.

Noting to do other than fish. If you are not a fisherman, you sit because there is no T.V. Connections and the wifi is so slow that you could send a letter and get the information quicker. No fire pits, store closed at 6:00. No a great experience. I though KOA would be special. I will no return nor will I try another one anytime soon. All around, disappointing.

Our stay was okay, but the spaces are close together and hard to back into with a large trailer. There is virtually nothing to do at this park and not much for sightseeing in the area. The road into the park (Hwy 261) is very steep and windy. The people running the park were very helpful and the restrooms were clean and nice. The restaurant was closed on the 2 days we stayed so can’t rate that

Neighbors on both sides were together and kept walking through our campsite and screaming. They were up until hours past quiet hours and we're cussing up a storm. It was a nightmare and anything but quiet and relaxing. I will never come back here again. This has been my experience with tent camping at every Koa and just seems to be places for disrespectful, rude and inconsiderate people.


We are very sorry that this happened during your stay. This is not typical of our KOA. We would love to have you back for a weekend on us. Please call if you would like. 509-399-8020

nice relaxing place to stay,marina was kept in nice condition as was the camp grounds

Probably great if you have a boat & are into fishing. In the middle of nowhere, no unspectacular views to/from Spokane (w/ the exception of the Palouse Falls). Didn't help that the restaurant was closed on the 2 days we were there. Decent enough spot but definately not KOA quality.

We have always enjoyed Lyons Ferry Marina and RV Park whether arriving by boat or land.

It's just a great place to camp, everything is at a your convenience, no leaving the site for any provisions you run out of... Its beautiful & well kept! And enjoy seeing our friends Joanne & Wally! �

great time, excellent campground , thank you !

An enjoyable stay. Fairly quiet except for the loud music on the first night from a boat in the marina. It would be nice to have less maintenance and employee car and vehicle traffic on the dirt road through the camping area, it kicks up a lot of dust. Nice staff, good facilities, store is great.

The workers at the campground were very friendly and helpful.

Everything was great except the wifi. We couldn't find a network to log into from our campsite and wifi was the main reason we stayed there. Other than that, the camp site was great - clean and soft grass for our tent.
Sep 05, 2018
We absolutely love this place, it's remote yet only an hour away from WW or even Tri Cities. The managers Joanne and Wally are top notch and so is their staff. They will do everything possible to make your stay the best possible. Super clean water, quiet, nice store, bathrooms and green green grass. Oh and the restaurant offers fantastic burgers and beer and wine!!!

our stay at the campgrounds was very enjoyable, facility was very accommodating, service personnel was very friendly and knowledgeable, area and landscape was awesome, sunsets on the Snake river were a kodak moment, thank you. Will be back next year

Amazing stay! Amazing staff! Great campgrounds, I swear every time I went to throw something away I was the first. Garbage cans always empty and area clean. Staff went above and beyond to help us because we are still learning about being an RV owner. What a blast! Thoroughly enjoyed star gazing with the family! Thanks KOA for a memorable family trip!

The grass was green, even in sept, a nice surprise , all the facilities were operational , staff was friendly and courteous ! The only item I could make a suggestion on , would be a greater frequency of bath , shower cleaning ! There was nothing to bad , but obviously they had not been deep cleaned in a while as demonstrated by the cob webs etc ! But all in all a great KOA !
