| Very bad experience: don't camp here

By user-5819380... on 2017-10-23.

We experienced significant damage to our camper here. Also, there was only ONE working women's toilet and ONE sink when we were there. You choose between a brightly lit parking lot or a field where campers are crammed together. The crew mowed the field near our pop-up camper. Their machine ripped our welcome mat in half, put a hole in our camper, and knocked down our awning. Our awning had metal that was ripped back in a way that we needed to break the metal just to put the awning down. When we showed the manager the damage, he was sympathetic, but the leader of the mowing crew (who mowed there) called us liars and walked away. The manager sided with his lawn mower and said the damage could have been there before (EVEN THOUGH it would have been IMPOSSIBLE for us to drive into the campground with the metal on our awning bent back in that manner.) Their insurance company refused to pay. Additionally, they told us the WRONG site to park in, then made us move. Being in a pop-up camper, we had to take everything out, put the camper down, move it literally 15 feet, put it back up again, and move everything back in. Talk about a waste of 1 1/2 hours! This campground is just not worth it.

| Breathtaking views

The views were spectacular! We occupied space 15 which overlooked the water and sat next to the boat launch. The boat launch was very busy, sometimes until 1:30am, and we missed not having a fire pit, sewer, or a dump station on site. However, it was thrilling to watch the tide roll in at night and fill the beach directly behind us. The lighthouse and the moon were perfect for evening walks. We enjoyed the 1.2 mile bicycle rides to the charming downtown area of Salem, when we weren't on the tiny, but clean, beach at Winter Island. We stayed near the end of the season which left few items on the shelves in the store. We can't wait to go back in October.

As a park Winter Island has a lot going for it. We stayed 2 nights and were happy to leave. As an RV campground it has little going for it other than it was the only campground we could locate in the Salem area. The appears it would probably be a very good campground for tent camping,but the RV spots are crowded appearing to have been hastily thrown together as an afterthought. No sewer hookups are available and the dump station is down the road a half mile.
