Talk about timing, I had narrowed down our last night rest stop before Osoyoos and Leavenworth or Eilenberg KOA were on the list. Scratch off Leavenworth and add Icicle River RV Resort.... thanks

We've stayed at Icicle River twice and have a reservation in early June for the Accordian Festival. Been lucky enough to stay in spots right on the river and we agree; it's a wonderful campground. It's an easy bike ride into town and there's a golf course between on the way to town. Glad you discovered it!

Loved the story, especially that it ended with all's well.

Camping disasters are the sole domain of KOA's. Last June we arrived at our site booked months in advance at Sequim, WA State Park. After a long day on the road we pulled up to our site smack dab between a large church group of 45 people and had to evict half of them and cars out of our little corner of "paradise". For the next 2 days, we tolerated frequent incursions since the shortest distance between their two campsites was through ours. Their campfire fuel was pine drug out of the woods and old tires and the language of choice was an foreign dialect best spoken at 110+ db. Not even any tv or XM reception to drown them out. Really nice people BUT really LOUD, lots of free range kids and up late! After 2 nights of that, I couldn't help but hug the nice elderly couple that pulled in next!

The Rangers were less than worthless.

The moral of our adventure was to always have a back up plan, in this case: earplugs.
