Great location less than a mile from downtown Walla Walla with easy access to the wine country. The park is relatively small with only 60 sites. The sites are all back in and paved with the center section being organized in a back to back configuration. Each site has a picnic table and concrete living area. The sites are a bit close, but there is still enough room to get around your rig and put out awnings. The park has good wifi, cable and a lodge/office building that includes the clean showers and bathrooms. See our reviews and pictures at thegilliamsisland.
Overall very good RV park in a great location. Quiet with adjacent municipal park facilities. Wild turkeys roam some of the sites. Larger RV sites are paved with smaller back in sites on grass. Restroom facilities are in need of a thorough cleaning and perhaps modernization to keep with the rest of the park. WIFI signals were adequate only in early morning. We could not connect to email and banking sites in the evening. I recommend that GS raters take WIFI services into account when rating parks. We stayed here two nights and would consider staying here again,
Nothing at campsite for children but there is a park In walking distance that has a water park, if you don’t mind paying more. After spending most of the day in a vehicle it is nice to be able to run off energy. At this price, usually there is at least a playground.
The park is clean and well maintained w level sites. Security is also good, since the city homeless shelter is just down the road. This is a handy park for visiting wineries, downtown, and golf courses. Would be nice to have some pull-throughs guaranteed.
This park has been under new ownership. The park is well kept. The bathrooms and shower facilities are very clean. We checked in after hours so the park called us to confirm our arrival and emailed us the site information and restroom/internet codes. Very helpful. The internet is almost non-existent in this park. We couldn't access it on most of our devices. The location is very convenient to downtown and the wineries. However, you are in the middle of an industrial park. We were in the Outback section and backed up against the highway so there was a fair amount of noise. Overall we would stay here again.
This is one of the only options in Walla Walla for RVs/Trailers. We stayed in a pull-through site, on the "Outback" side. Our site was very level, with a gravel pad and a picnic table. I would call the size of the sites "nut to butt." We were very close to our neighbors, but there was certainly room for our awning, chairs, etc. under a tree in a grassy area that was part of our site.
The campground is very neat and tidy in all areas. Bathrooms were very clean, but with only 2 showers in the women's, I imagine it can get crowded. Good water pressure and it seemed to have plenty of hot water. I disliked the time they close the bathrooms down for cleaning--between 10-11am, which is still a high use time. I observed multiple people waiting. I think it needs to be later--after 11am. To me it seems like they have the cleaning hours to benefit themselves and not their customers.
The only downfall to the campground, which is in an industrial area, is the incessant beeping of a forklift (?) from a nearby company. It went all day long and it started at 7am, including the Saturday. It was EXTREMELY annoying. We never heard a peep from the Humane Society, which is directly adjacent, although we saw a few dogs in the yard. Good freeway access and once the forklifts stopped, it was quiet.
We would stay here again. It's a good choice for exploring wine country!
Great place to stay. Centrally located. We were In Walla Walla to visit the various wineries. Not far from any one of them you might want to visit. The laundry rooms were clean. Our site was level and fairly roomy. Will stay there again.
I spent two days there with a 30' travel trailer in order to do wine tasting around Walla Walla. The park is well situated distance wise from Walla Walla and vineyards - one can even walk to downtown Walla Walla in 10 minutes. However, it's located in an industrial park. Once inside - fine. Toilet/shower facilities are great, as is laundry. My site was level.
Backin sites are not close to being level so when we set our jacks the front wheels were several inches off the ground. Further, and this was a complete puzzle to us, they had planted new holly bushes around the hookups so one could not avoid being bitten by the thorns. Watch out for flying and stinging insects there too. It's under new ownership so we hope this helps. It's a very nice location and a very clean resort, but the sites, etc., need to be addressed
