Date of Stay: September 15-18, 2011.
Weather During Stay: Two days of sunshine, two days of rain, cool nights.
Site Description: Sun Country is a small golf and housing development in the Cascades, including 14 on-site RV sites. Six of the sites are adjacent to the parking lot (with very easy parking access); the other half are accessed via a narrow road that circles the pro shop. Sites are long back-ins on gravel and grass (mostly grass), reasonably level.
All sites are FHU (20 and 50 amp in all the utility boxes I checked) with cable TV. Each has a sturdy picnic table. Spacing is comfortable.
Rate: Friday through Sunday, the daily rate is $34/night. Monday through Thursday, the rate drops to $29/night.
Phone/radio/TV: Good Verizon signal here for both phones and aircard, though the aircard access came to a screeching halt once or twice a day. Free WiFi is available in the clubhouse (we didn't use it). Our site had no obstacles for our roof-mounted satellite TV dish. Cable TV with 40 channels. NPR on 90.7.
Elevation/landscape/terrain: Located at 2,000 ft. in the Cascades just off I-90, this park has a mountain feel. Watch the comings/goings of golfers on the practice green and first tee. Views are of the course, custom built homes lining the fairways, and forested mountains beyond. Interesting and appealing.
Lighting/noise: Very dark at night, with a light hum of distant traffic on I-90 that did not bother us even with windows open. The traffic noise is more noticeable during the day but, again, not bothersome.
Favorite Sites: We found all the sites appealing. When we checked in, Pearl (front desk) told us most people prefer the sites behind the pro shop; since we had a reservation, she had given us one of those sites (site 13).
Hiking/Walking: Excellent. Quite interesting to walk through the small neighborhood of homes lining the fairways and the banks of the Yakima River. For a longer walk, pickup the Iron Horse State Park trail (on the edge of the development), a 100+ mile rail/trail developed for hiking, biking and horses.
Comments: Odel played golf the day we arrived, on a very pretty, up and down course (18 holes). Short drive to the small towns of Cle Elum (with a Safeway) and Roslyn, where Northern Exposure was filmed. We would return.
