I recently stayed here just to get away for a little bit & despite the horrible reviews I read, I loved it! The most frustrating part of my stay was having to deal with the extremely rude neighbors I had. But I went into the office & spoke with the young man at the front desk & he took care... More

We were unsure of what we would find due to previous reviews. We were pleasantly surprised. They have done a lot of work in putting in new rv slots and as close as we were to the hwy there was very little noise. Dog friendly rv park, same rules apply as anywhere else, keep pets leashed and pick up after... More

I always hate to write negative reviews. And usually decide simply not to say anything, but I truly feel like there is some misleading information posted and if you are going to stay here you should have proper expectations. First of all the reservation system is quite confusing. We were told our group was in one area of the park... More

After reading a previous review entitled “Deplorable”, we were a bit apprehensive about our relative's selection of this place for our family reunion. Our stay at Smokiam ended up being very nice (we stayed in one of their tepees). We particularly enjoyed taking in the free outdoor movie one evening. Some observations: - Soap Lake is a mineral/soda lake -... More

Great staff and great accommodations! We rented a teepee and it was amazing! We stayed last year camped and had a great time then and this year topped that! The playground and pool and great relaxing places with the kiddo! We are already planing our next trip!

We had a great Family Reunion this year for our family. The youngest member was 6 months and the oledest was 84 years. The owners and the manager make sure we had everything we needed. The cabins were very clean and the whole staff were friendly. The family members voted this place the best place for a family reunion. We... More

The park is undergoing a major renovation. They are adding new deluxe cabins and more RV sites with grass areas. They also have added several Teepee's down near the beach. The pool is looking pretty good now. However there is still a bit of confusion in the office and with the reservations. The existing RV site power/water/sewer connections are really... More

❤ Came with a friend to take a brake from city. This is my second time here, and love it. Was here 2 years ago, now they have new owner. The new owner is trying to make the place 100% better then the old one. Staff is friendly and makes you fill like your at home. Love the kayak.

I was expecting what was represented on the Internet. It was not to be. The sites are dirt. The lake stinks and is so disgusting, fish do not live in it. The place is infested with gnats, mosquitos and thousands of dragonflies. The pool is nice, yet over-run with children, uncontrolled. The laundry room stinks and is dirty; I will... More

Karin - We truly appreciate your comments. We purchased the RV resort one year ago and have been completely remodeling this 60 year old resort. A construction project of this size does take time and we do understand that is can be frustrating to guests that the improvements are not fully completed yet. We are currently 50% complete with the... More

They are in the process of rebuilding the RV park, with more spots suitable for big rigs. The lots themselves are gravel. The grounds are charming and there is a lot of potential here. The reservation system is convenient and modern, and the people who staff the place are very nice. The beach is a bit muddy with very soft... More

Thank you for your review and feedback. We always strive to listen to our guests feedback to further improve the resort. The park sits on a mineral lake and the east side of our beach happens to be where the prevailing winds shift the lake sediment to. It is an annual rejuvenation project where annually we need to scrape the... More
