There is evidence that this park has had better days. Everything they claim is there is as long as you include dandelions in their description of grassy sites. Some evidence of gravel is visible on most sites. Did I mention none of them appears to be particularly level. The rate ($30) is high for the condition of the place. On the flip side they have a very short season to break even. Of the three options available, this place is the least offensive. One is very close to a very busy rail yard and the other is in a bar parking lot. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Roads are poor gravel and the sites are dirt. You can't make reservations and there is no office that I could tell. Just put your money in an envelope at the entrance and look for a open site. I didn't find a site that looked open even though it looks like there are many incomplete sites under construction. I ended up calling their phone and got ahold of what appeared to be the handyman who put me into a site that he said was reserved but they were not here yet??? I stayed here two nights. This could be a great place if they set it up like a "real" RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
CG is on the Hams Fork River across from Union Pacific switching yard. Seldom are whistles heard but there is a lot of freight traffic through Kemmerer. Owner is not on site, but someone does come around once a day to check on arrivals and departures. There are several long term residents in the CG, well kept sites. There are 10 paved pull-through sites with full hook-ups. There are young shade trees. The cable TV draws 4 channels and Wi-Fi is not great. We used our own devices and had a 5 bar, 4G signal. Cell phones worked well. One RVer apparently came here without reservation and had to leave, in spite of the fact there are always 7 or 8 open sites available. There is no laundry and no restrooms and/or showers. The building is locked up and long unused. No one ever mans the reception station. As long as you have a reservation you may pick your site and deposit your money in the drop box. Close to Fossil Butte National Monument but a long way from everything else. Abundant wildlife along the river and a park across the highway with walking trails and a golf course. An okay place to rest and relax before moving on. We probably won't be back here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Past reviews made me think this might be the lesser of the evils but we wanted a site near Fossil Butte. This was a very nice little park. There do seem to be some long term campers here but everything looked neat and clean. Sites well kept. Some sites were well maintained gravel, some were paved. Some back ins and some pull throughs. We parked on a paved site. It is near the rail line but far enough away that it was not a bother, just rather a pleasant reminder of life moving around us. Not near a crossing so no whistles. Small river runs by. Took a walk and saw a beaver dam, two beaver, and four buck deer in full velvet. Spent one night. Would come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in this park recently, and did not find the shabbiness reported by others. To the contrary the rigs now in the park are for the most part in good condition. The sites are paved, and the general upkeep of the place is Good. However the WiFi is still $5.00 per day, a bit much, and now there is no cable TV. The owner claims that the cable company went out of business. We would stay here again but only on a one night basis. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here because it was the only RV park in this town. Had a pull-through site for one night and had to pay $5 extra for one night of internet access. This park has no restroom, showers or pool. No trees, no shade and the place looks very shabby. The neighbor next to us said he stayed here in the early 80's and the place hasn't changed. Fortunately, we were between two nice looking motorhomes so we felt safe. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the closest campground to Fossil Butte so we planned on going here after stopping at the visitor center. There was no one there to give us a site. The sites were just dirt and it looked like a shanty town. We decided to drive straight through to Salt Lake City. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
