Just spent 2 nights here on our way to the coast, as soon as you pull up at the office , you are met by Jodi the co owner of the park, along with Dave you are made very welcome. The park has a very friendly way about it, happy hour by the fire is a must. Toilets and showers were spotless. Well worth dropping in and stay a while, you will not be disappointed .

One of our all time favorites. David and Jodie never change. Had a beaut site down the back which is a drive thru. I think $33.00 per night. Good power and water, pet friendly, dump site. Excellent happy hour and camp kitchen. Lots of yearly regulars here as well.

A great stop on the long drive north or south. A well run, clean, tidy park far enough from the main road that truck noise is not intrusive. Large level sites and clean amenities.

This is the first time we have stayed at this park, and yes previous reports are spot on. Managers, David & Jodi, are a very friendly, and outgoing couple. Nothing is any trouble to them, and they love caravaners. We booked in for two nights, but then extended for another two nights. The happy hours are just great, and everyone is invited. Capella, is a small quiet town, which we found nice to chill out. We could recommend Dooley's Tavern, for a great meal. This venue has pokey machines, and a Courtesy Bus, that picks you up from the park, and brings you back, at no charge. Would stay here again anytime. Price paid $29.
