This was great fun! 3 hours of pure adrenaline! We are not ATV or UTV'ers so this was new for us. The trails are great, full of rocks, slopes, sand and water! Going through the water at top speed and getting soaked with cold, muddy water was fantastic! We loved it and couldn't stop laughing . But if you don't like grit in your teeth, mud on your goggles and excitement, find something else to do. If you do, this is it.

Kendall was a great guide and obviously enjoyed what he was doing. He was full of knowledge of the area and took us for a short hike to see some beautiful scenery in this fantastically beautiful place.

One thing they should tell you but don't (for those who are not avid trail riders), bring a bandana or something to cover your nose and mouth. It gets pretty dusty. They provide helmets and goggles.

We'd recommend this and do it again!

Very nice RV campground with lovely patio sites, trees, grass and space. Rarely do you find them all. I was so happy to have enough room to set up outside and enjoy a nice dinner and a fire with our family.

Vince was determined to find this house and we drove around for 45 minutes before we actually did. He practically had to crawl under the fence to get a picture but the view from the front was easier to access.

These mountains and this park were really well worth the trip. We enjoyed a cold, sparkling visit to Hurricane Ridge, the scenery was beautiful. The road windy and steep but at least we were in our car and not the RV! Becky, Brian and the kids were with us which made this that much better.

On our second day, we went to Crescent Lake and after the rain stopped, hey, it rains alot in Washington, we enjoyed walking by the beautiful crystal clear lake with mountains reflected in it's surface and then a lovely lunch at the Inn.

A great day over all just missing Vince who stayed back at the RV to fix it!

What a fabulous campground! Not only was the campground clean, well laid out and had plenty of space, we also had a patio, nice table and chairs, a swinging bench and a raised firepit. And when we arrived 3 hours early, they even let us check in!

But best of all was the view, absolutely stunning to wake up each morning or sit outside by the fire and look at the beautiful Olympic Mountains right behind us. Breathtaking and wish we could have stayed longer!

1 star at most - the landscaping was nice but the sites were so incredibly squished together I could reach from one side to our extended slide with my arms! And I don't have long arms!

I noticed the lack of space as soon as we drove in - or rather squeezed into the narrow entrance off the main road - and when I asked the woman in the office, she snapped "No! They are all the same size!". Ugh. As we were being checked in, the large man who needed a haircut and a clean shirt asked where we were from. When I told him NY, he proceeded to tell me everything he didn't like about NY. Thanks, welcome to Washington buddy.

No decent place to walk the dogs, the sites were all unlevel and sloped, and despite the landscape between each site, it was so unpleasant to be in such a small area that we never sat outside!

Would not recommend this place. Premier RV Spot in Washington - what a joke!

A cool place to visit, very Americana. A quick 30 minutes to take it all in and who knew you could make an entire building façade out of ears of corn? The designs change yearly and they have local competitions to choose the annual designs. The building has been there since the late 1800’s in one form or another when it was created to entice people to come west to farm.

Inside, the exhibits explain the history and the famous and not so famous people who have visited. A large auditorium has giant murals on the walls that have been there since the 1970’s. The corn is only replaced when needed or if a basketball hits an ear, causing a corn shower, and needs to be switched out. All corn is natural colors as they grow it locally in 15 different colors. Each ear of corn is cut in half lengthwise and nailed into the mural.

Lunch next door in the Scorecard Pub & Grill was nice, and we ate outside. Service and staff were very friendly. All in all, this satisfied Vince’s desire to see this again after visiting here as a child with his Dad and family. It was worth the trip.

Very nice campground and welcome stop after a day of driving. Staff was friendly and accommodating, park was clean and sites were large. Only stayed one night but was glad we came!

Just visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. This was a bucket list item for my husband and I was happy to oblige. Unfortunately I was not overly impressed as they seemed to stop adding people after the 90’s. But more than that (‘cuz I don’t know many bands/singers after that anyway except for Lady Gaga my new crush who WASN’T EVEN IN THERE), I was stunned by the lack of women in this place. And this represents all of Rock and Roll? According to who? For every 15 men with exhibits (shirts, boots, guitars, etc - think Hard Rock Cafes), there was 1 woman.

Pretty unbalanced....maybe it’s not a 50-50 ratio in the R&R world but it sure is a hell of a lot better than 1 in 15. So to make my point (which I am apparently going to) we saw a movie that was 15 minutes of loud music showcasing all kinds of rockers over the years (although R&B, HipHop, Pop, Rap were there too) It was fun to try to figure out who they all were. I got some, my husband got more I’m sure....and when you walk out, they have all the people you just saw on a wall with their pictures....so I counted. There were 76 men, mostly white. There were 16 women, mostly white. How do you do a thumbs down emoji? I rest my Rock and Roll case.
