Super helpful people, nice marina, easy to reserve and register, clean and neat! Beautiful location! Palouse Falls nearby is gorgeous.

Wally and JoAnn are the best.

Everything is good, except the showers. They are in need of repair and they stink.

Easy to get into our spot and set up, plus the site was plenty large for our tent and car. Check-in was super easy and the bathrooms were cleaned twice in the single day we were there. Great job!

The bathrooms are nasty. The shower stalls are dirty. The surrounding are loud. Quiet hours are NOT enforced.

We chose this campground as it's about the only option that's close to Palouse Falls. The store and staff were nice but the experience wasn't great. We slept terribly due to loud people, children, headlights and late arrivals showing up. If you're in an RV, you'd probably be fine. We will never tent camp here again and would rather do dispersed camping next time we're in this area.

Positive: the bathroom was clean and the sites were nicely spaced. Plenty of room for social distancing. Negatives: the noise level was bad. People came and went before and after "quiet hours." No mention on booking site of train tracks directly next to campground. Trains with alert horns went by twice in middle of night. Office and store closed on Mondays, no firewood for purchase when we arrive


Sorry about the train, it normally doesn't run that late or twice in one night. Due to COVID, our vendors are having a tough time getting us some items and firewood is one of those items. This has also affected our summer help. We are doing our best with the limits put on us. Hoping that will chang

The tent sites are large and close to the bathroom.

3 nights tent camp. Good separation tents and large RVs. Good/clean bath facilities - gel soap liquid, auto-feed towels, hot water, secured entrances, well kept grounds. Excellent location. Staff helpful, prompt/polite in all interactions. May become too popular with more RVs on road with Covid 19 situation.

Day construction made it very hard to relax. Also if the store is closed on Tuesdays I feel that should be told prior to booking. Felt I paid for something I wasn’t able to use.


We had a water main break and needed to be fixed ASAP. Day construction is not typical during the summer season unless it's necessary, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

It is a beautiful place to stay along the river always clean bathrooms the people are super friendly if I had to complain it would be they ran out of food by 3pm in the afternoon at the restaurant and the guy that checks over the campgrounds kept driving his quad around way passed 10 pm other than that it was perfect

Enjoyed staying at the Starbuck/Lyons Ferry Marina KOA. The tent site was of adequate size and grassy. Restrooms were clean. Nice having a store/restaurant on site. We took advantage of the nearby state park a couple days and would have loved to seen the nearby falls except they were very crowded due to the holiday.

Our site was nice with a partial view of river. Sites are very close to other tenters and music could be heard that was not on very loud and early morning, 5am, convos woke up many neighbors. Also, a few dogs were aggressive and that was scary. No firewood for Memorial Day was strange. Overall, it was fine.

Great people and eveything was super clean. The only knock on the camp gound is there is no privacy. The sites are stacked one on top of the other. For a fishing trip it was great, but for camping and relaxing its difficult when everyone is that tight together.

The showers can use a little attention overall had a great day

We had a late checkin and the process went very easy without the camp host being on duty. We had a pleasant stay except I should have used more insect spray to avoid getting bitten.

Sites were pretty well maintained. Only complaint is that sites were a little close together. Bathrooms were cleaned regularly and showers were nice too. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

all the staff go above and beyond to make your stay very enjoyable. We had 13 of our family come and stay and it was great.

We have been coming to Lyons Ferry Marina for the last 14 years before it was even a KOA and when they put it into a KOA there was so much more done to it that was nice and accommodating we've always loved our trip there it's a big family reunion and the people who own and work there have become family I will always bring new people and family there to be able to experience the time that we have.

First time staying at this campground. Our hosts and the facility was great! Everything was clean and our stay was really relaxing.

Large shade trees in sites & high desert near the campground are beautiful. Beware, the campground is not a simple right turn & you're there. I was lost... It's 45 min on a back road w no services incl. no cell service for most of it. No one at the campground answered the phone, nor responded to v.m. Also, drunk male campers woke me & again no help. Not recommended for females camping alone.

It was mostly good, but people didn't really respect quiet hours, especially in the morning.

Nice little spot on the river with a fishing pier.

They had water going on my tent site when I got there and the guy ignored me when I asked him to help because he was helping some guy back in his million dollar motorbike, and the BLT was $13 Won't be back!!!!

This place is awesome! Great place to hang out with family and friends. Owners are super nice and always accommodating. The food is great and they also sell beer and all the necessities for a great day in the water, bathrooms are super clean.
