We stayed at Laughing Alpaca on a trip down the coast and across to Crater Lake. The park is wonderful and quiet. It is open and green with large sites. There are several who make sure the sites are watered daily and all are very friendly. They were welcoming to our pets, dog and cats (indoor only). We were let know they had a Border collie that roamed freely but we only saw it once and not when we walked our dog on her leash. If we cut across Oregon through the Redwoods again, we will definitely stay at Laughing Alpaca.
Very pleasant RV park. They work hard on upkeep of the grounds. A few trees need some trimming for the higher profile rigs but it was doable. Interior sites circle the "park area" which is a pleasant change from lined up next to each other.
We have stayed here 4 times in the last 2 years. Great owners/managers and long term residents. Sight is grassy with lots of shade and the sites have lots of space. We camped with the river right behind us with relaxing views. The river access is at the end of the park and you can easily bring down your boards or kayaks. Bathrooms were clean. Wifi was decent and restaurants were conveniently located. Highly recommend!
This campground and RV park would not allow my service dog. They said that they let their dog run free all over the place along with other campers, but refused to let my service dog, which is always on a lead or leash. It is illegal for them to do this. I have been displaced by the recent fires and the home I was staying at burned. I have no where to go and sitting on the side of the road and have lost all of the food I bought to stay there. An agreement was made with them thru a charity several days in advance. But they broke the agreement by discrimination. I'm a disabled senior citizen with a service dog. It's been in the nineties and we are suffering in the heat.
From the road Laughing Alpaca looks like any other RV Park/campground. It's when you enter that you find out what a jewel it is. Right on the Illinois River, it is green, comfortable, and welcoming. Sites are good sized and you don't feel cramped. Green grass, trees, nice amenities, and wonderful hosts make this a great destination. Priced very reasonable. It has both long term and short term sites. It's clean and cared for. They make you feel at home. The satellite TV is limited, but just fine. The Wi-Fi is good. Bathrooms and laundry are clean. We liked it so much that we decided to call Laughing Alpaca home and went from a visit to residence. You won't regret staying here.
