Thousand Trails/KOA Little Diamond RV Park

Newport Washington
      Not sure were to start. This is a park that is part Thousand Trails and part KOA. Don't let the pictures fool you. We had one of the better sites. About half the sites in the TT part are unusable. Maybe with a tent they can be used. This park requires MAJOR updating,  or a total remake. Not to noticeable in the pictures, but our hookups are in the front of the site between those tall trees in front of our truck. There are two hookups, one for us and one for the site on our left. But one of the electric outlets didn't work. We had 30 amp electric and water. There are no sewer hookups. But there is a pump out for $25. Never did we pay more for this service then $10. The KOA part of the park was in a lot better shape. They did a lot of upgrades. The pool and all amenities are shared by both TT and KOA. Everybody we had any contact with that worked for the park were very friendly and helpful. They all wore yellow KOA shirts, with a very little Thousand Trails embroider below the larger KOA emblem. Not sure who is running the parks. Did ask one lady who she worked for and she said our checks come from LLS. The laundry was clean with 5 W/D's. Checked the restrooms in the TT park and they were in good shape and very clean.  There is some new gravel in some of the sites, like ours. The roads are very hard packed dirt with very little gravel. There are many sites, 50- 75 or more in the woods behind us that are so grown in that they must not have been used in 10 or 15 years. A worker here told us they weren't used for 30 years. There are evergreen trees growing on them that are 5-6 foot tall, were you would park your RV. There are two abandon restrooms and what looks like something that was a lodge in the unused area. Not sure what that's about.  In the second pictures note the site that is on our right. It has a major sloop. One of the great things about this park is the super aroma of all the evergreen trees. Most days it just like opening one of those pine air freshens for your car or pine aerosol for your  home. Everybody and I mean everybody that worked there was very very friendly.
