Well taken care of, grounds clean and comfortable

This is a fabulous oasis in the midst of Western Washington Wheat Country and about 9 miles from the stunning Palouse Falls. Highly recommend this KOA. The management folks are very nice and helpful and keep the campground very clean.

Great service although the campground is not up to Koa quality relative to site layout. No division between spots. Great location.

The staff at Lyons Ferry were very friendly and accommodating. At the last minute we had to change our spots and they managed it very well. I used the upper restrooms and they were very well maintained for amount of the use they get. Being able to moor our boat was an extra bonus. We are definitely coming back.

The hosts here will treat you as their friend and they will ensure you are well taken care of. The grounds are well kept, clean and neat. This place requires lots of maintenance and they are right on top of it all. The office, store and café are all nice, clean and professional. Great Place with most excellent managers on site. Its one of our top sites in the country to visit.

Friendly staff. Quiet time was quiet. Breakfast was good, but the burritos should be larger for the price. Overall was a nice stay :)

Non existent WiFi unless your right on top of the office. No laundry! Remote! Desolate! The only positive we’re the friendly girls working there!

A Very nice place and excellent customer service. We really enjoyed camping there and definitely will come back. We wished we have more time to extend our staying. We also particularly thanks to Joanne and Wally for being very friendly and helpful. Please don't just take my words for it, I recommend people to be there to believe it!

Very hot , no shade, no place to dump. Was sent to Lyons Ferry Park to dump. Dump was out of order !!! Had metal plate and looks like it was out of order for awhile. Fellow camper told me you can come to me and dump tanks. But for some reason you refused to do mine. Will not be coming back !!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

i'M SORRY ABOUT THE INCONVIENCE YOU WENT THROUGH WITH TRYING TO DUMP. WE DID NOT KNOW THAT LYONS FERRY STATE PARK'S DUMP WAS OUT OF COMMISSION. WE WOULD LOVE TO GIVE YOU A NIGHT ON US IN A FULL HOOK UP SITE DUE TO THIS.
Jul 25, 2018
We have been coming to Lyons Ferry for years. It just gets better and better. Absolutely adore your new managers. They are the best! We'll see you again next year!!!!

family had a good stay and park was clean. only drawback is there is no dump station for those who didnt have full hookups.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do allow our park guest to use an empty Full hook-up site to dump when they leave at no cost. There is also a dump station at the state park across the bridge, which there is a cost. This is something we are looking into putting in our park in the future.

Staff were driving extremely fast through campgrounds endangering the children in the campground. Broken sewer line may have been cause. No sewer for 2 days because of the damaged line.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, you are correct we had a sewer line issue and to prevent any problems to our guest, we got it repaired as fast as possible. It was contained and repaired within 2 hours and everyone was notified. I'm sorry if you missed being notified, but we weren't down for 2 days.

Very friendly people. There is nothing fancy about this campground, but the people running it will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay

People that are in charge of running and taking care of the campground are GREAT !

First I must say that the staff on site was very nice and did everything within their means to help. You have a great staff. Now for the bad part, we had intermittent electricity, there was very limited shade and no dump site for campers who had only water and electric hookups. To compound the the uncomfortable part it was 105 degrees every day while we were there. We will not return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately for the park, you got here the day after the electric company did some work on electricity in the area. Being full, we noticed that we weren't getting full power to the park and notified the electric company. We are hoping to put in a dump station in the future and unfortunately Mother Nature doesn't response to my request for cooler weather. Wish I could have helped there.

Need more garbage cans.. pet area needs to be cleaned up and new grass! Weeds need to be cut down in all areas to give a more heat look!
Jul 11, 2018
If you have a boat to put on the river, or a fishing pole, you will be very happy here. We had neither, so found we had nothing to do. It was very hot so we wished that the park had a pool or swimming area. They have neither, and suggested that we go swim at the state park on the other side of the bridge. The state park charges $10 per car per day. This is a good place to watch trains.

We had a great time, The people at Lyons Ferry are great, all of them. We will be back.

Staff was very friendly and the park was very clean!

Love the place, love the setting. The office gal that makes the lattes is particularly stellar, love the whimsical socks too.

2nd time there, and again, fantastic place. This time it was noisy only because a group of tenters with 4K-5k kids running around with total disregard to rules or common courtesy, but it was still relaxing for sure will be back! Staff is fantastic!

We didn’t have much lick with the WIFI and the code to the men’s bathroom up on the hill didn’t work in the morning. Other than that the stay was nice. Staff and other campers were friendly and helpful.

This was our very first trip with our very first travel trailer. The staff was amazing. Chris helped my husband guide in our trailer and came back later to check on us. Very quite (not what i expected at all). The bathrooms were dated, but cleaner than I expected. We will be back.

Very disappointed. We were not notified of a burn ban therefore we were unable to cook any of the food we brought.

We always enjoy our time spent at Starbuck/Lyons Ferry Marina.Service,Great.This is a annual vacation for us & our friends. Would like to have a access to a better parking space. How can we apply for a certain spot next visit? Please advise Thank you,Jack. The Pettibones, Weippe ID. 208 435 4740.

Wi FI was nonexistent at our location. You could see it but impossible to connect. When leaving from our partial hookup (no sewer), we discovered there was no dump site....we would have to back into a vacant site to dump. These drawbacks certainly didn't lower the cost of the site and we weren't told in advance. This KOA is in a beautiful location.
Jun 26, 2018
The sites were well cared for, the hosts were friendly and helpful, and the restaurant food was good. Excellent!
Jun 26, 2018
Very well maintained resort, convenient for seeing the local sights, and the staff was exceptional! Each one wanted to make sure our stay was the best, and their extra efforts were appreciated! My only suggestion for improvement is to add a dump station for RV's staying in the top level. Maybe at the north end of the top level by the bathrooms to take advantage of the existing systems? Thanks!
Jun 25, 2018
Great Staff, very friendly and always to help if needed. I needed to check out early due to work and was pleasantly surprised to get one night refunded. Will stay here again!!

Make sure your fuel tank is filled before heading out to this remote KOA. Campground is tiered. Marina, then RV sites up a level, tents/cabins up on third level and playground on 4th level. Awesome train bridge over the river. Some shaded sites with trees. Quiet and clean.

Remote location. Quiet & peaceful. Limited amenities. Fantastic staff. Fishing on site and awesome views.

Great shade and pleasant employees.
Jun 22, 2018
We had a good time. Our only complaints were it was difficult to back the RV in with vehicles parked along the edge and the site was not level.

So relaxing and the best camping experience so far in Washington

Pretty and quiet location. If we're in the area again, we would stay there.
Jun 18, 2018
Only stayed 1 night. Personnel very welcoming and helpful. For overnight, would recommend when traveling. Close to Palouse Falls .
Jun 18, 2018
Great place to stay. My visit was very quiet, even though it was full. Super friendly staff. Will definitely stay again. Wifi sucked, but, that may have been a good thing :-) Only criticism, would be the heavy use of the side-by-sides zipping around almost constant. But, details.
