We stayed here for a couple of nights. They offered a Good Sam discount so our nightly fee was $44.54. The park was near Interstate 81 (within sight) but access was along narrower secondary roads past a school. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads and sites were narrow. The pull through site was just long enough for our 40’ RV with the toad attached. The park has a significant slope on the back half. Not much privacy between the sites as they are pretty close together. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections which were about midway along the side of the sites. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. The parking pads were sloped so leveling was an issue so staying connected to the toad was not an option. Some sites required extensive blocking to get level. The sewer connection was on the uphill side of the sites. No trees so no obstructions to satellite reception. Park supplied WiFi reception was poor. They couldn’t fix the problem during our stay. Really no designated pet area but there was sufficient grassy areas and along the roads. There were no bag dispensers around the park and the only garbage was the dumpster at the front of the park. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. The GS discount wasn’t applied to the site fee when stay was extended one day.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 81. The road sign is small so you might miss it. The access road is paved but narrow, windy, and encumbered with trees. The interior roads and sites are gravel and narrow. The pull through sites were just long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. Not much privacy between the sites as they are pretty close together. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (rates depend upon service), & sewer connections that were generally midway along the side of the site. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. The parking pads were sloped making it difficult to level. The sewer connection was on the uphill side of the parking pad. The sewer fitting itself extended about 12 to 18” above the ground. When the issue was brought to the attention of a staff member, he agreed the fittings needed to be lowered but it was not done during our stay. The height of the fitting and being uphill from the parking pad made the use of sewer worthless. There as an outside table and fire pit. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. Most of the RV sites are in the area without trees. But there are some tree lines along the outer edges of the campground area. Site without tree obstruction offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Park provided WiFi reception was good. There was a designated fenced pet area with bag dispensers and garbage containers to dispose of waste. The rules prohibited leaving dogs unattended in the area. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. This park is orientated toward families with children so there are a lot of activities for children which is reflected in the prices. Even if you don’t have children so you are not going to use the activities, you still have to pay the same price so we would not stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. They offer a Good Sam discount. The park is right along US-61 N just south of town so it is fairly easy to get to unless you’re coming from town. Then you have to go past the park until you can make a U-turn across a 4 lane divided highway. Transitioning off the highway requires going up a short hill to reach a level area just outside of the office. The park is pretty close to town even though it is in a rural setting. The interior roads are gravel. The roads were sufficient to get around the park. The site parking pads are gravel. The pull through sites are long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. It seemed that none of the sites were level & flat. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (with 50 AMP), & sewer but all of the utility connections were not together. The electric and water were on the side about half way. The sewer connection was at the high end of the site requiring an uphill run with a lot of hose. Not much privacy between the sites. The longer term residents seemed to be along the sides. There was a line of trees along one side which could obstruct access to the sky for satellite reception. There were no trees in the center of the park so no obstructions for satellite reception or slides. No park provided WIFI but our Verizon hotspot worked well. Cell phone was good. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. The bathhouse was identified as the severe weather shelter but its construction didn’t seem to offer much protection and it was above ground. No designated pet area. But there is sufficient room along the roads to exercise a dog. There were no bag dispensers and the only garbage can to dispose of waste was the dumpster at the office. There was a dog running loose in the park. When one of the other guests brought the dog to the office, the staff didn’t do anything to keep the dog from running at large even though the leash law is enforced by the city. We were offered a CD containing a tour for the NPS battlefield but the office wasn’t open when we headed out to the battlefield so we didn’t get to take advantage of the offer.

We attempted to stay here for a couple of nights. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 20 unless you’re coming off of US-61 N. There isn’t much distance between the on ramp from US-61 N to the off ramp for Exit 1A and you have to cross two active lanes of high speed traffic (good luck) to reach the off ramp. The entrance to the park requires a sharp 90 degree turn off the main road onto a small access road. As you approach the park, the road has a downhill slope into the park that requires a tight right turn to get to the registration office. The interior roads are asphalt. The roads were sufficient to get around the park. The site parking pads are concrete with a small concrete patio for an outside table. The pull through sites were not long enough for 40’ RV with the toad attached. The concrete parking pads were very narrow – just wide enough for our coach but no room to step onto concrete upon exiting the coach. Only a few of the sites are even close to being level & flat. The sites at the lowest point in the park had standing water just off the concrete where you would have to step to get out of your coach. Not much privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & a sewer connection but all of the utility connections are located at the rear end of the sites. At check in, the front office staff said they only had 30 AMP sites available. We said we needed 50 AMP. So the clerk assigned us a space with 50 AMP. Due to the pitch (slope) of the sites we could never get level as we only have an automatic air adjustable leveling system so we left. Didn’t seem to be any long term residents. Wouldn’t recommend going into this park with anything long.

We stayed here for 2 nights. They offer a Good Sam and returning guest discounts. The park is near Interstate 81 but the access requires travel along some narrow roads, through a small business district and into a rural residential area before you reach the park. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were of sufficient width but some of the corners were a little tight. The sites were narrow. The pull through sites were just long enough for our 40’ RV with the toad attached. Not much privacy between the sites as they are fairly close to each other. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections which were located about midway along the side of the site. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. The parking pads were sloped so leveling was an issue. The sewer connection was on the uphill side of the sites. There are a lot of trees in and around the park. Some trees were close enough to create a problem for slides on the sites with tree encroachment. There seemed to be a lot of long term residents mostly along the outer edge and the back end. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky for satellite reception but check with the office when you’re registering to make sure you get one. Our Verizon hotspot reception was adequate. There were some designated pet areas along the edges of the park. There were no bag dispensers and the only garbage can to dispose of waste in was the centrally located dumpster. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The park is near Interstate 75 but access is along some busy streets and then transition into a residential area with narrow streets. The GPS announced our arrival before we actually reached the park so we had to drive a little farther down the road to reach the park entrance. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads and sites were narrow. The pull through sites were not long enough for 40’ RV with the toad attached. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections which were generally located about midway along the side of the site. There was an outside table and a fire pit. But the neighbor’s fire pit was very close to our coach. Good that they didn’t have a fire. There are a lot of trees in and around the park. Some trees were close enough to create a problem for slides on the sites with tree encroachment. The park was divided into two sides. One side had the long term residents (seemed to be a lot of them) and the other side was the short stay guests. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky for satellite reception but check with the office when you’re registering to make sure you get one. Park supplied WiFi reception was intermittent. No real designated pet area but there was sufficient grassy areas and along the interior roads. There were no bag dispensers and the only garbage can to dispose of waste in was the centrally located dumpster. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. There was an auto race track nearby that created some noise on Saturday night.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. They offered a Good Sam discount. The park is a short distance from the Natchez Trace Parkway. It is off of Highway 145 (N. Gloster St). Transitioning off the highway requires a sharp 90 degree turn. The access road is paved. The park is very close to town even though it is in a wooded rural setting. The park was built on the side of a hill so the parking pads were cut out of the slope forming steps up the hill but they are level. However, the roads run up and down the hill and are rather steep. The interior roads are gravel. The roads were sufficient to get around the park. Surprising you don’t need to disconnect your toad to get around the park. The site parking pads are gravel. The pull through sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (with 50 AMP), & sewer. The connections are about midway along the side of the sites. The sites are not uniform in design, shape or location. Didn’t seem to be any long term residents but there appeared to be some RV storage. The park is surrounded and encumbered with trees obstructing access to the sky for satellite reception but there were a few sites designated as satellite friendly. They did have an extensive cable station lineup. The trees didn’t seem to cause a problem for slides. Park provided WIFI worked well. Net10 cell phone reception was good. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. This was strange considering when approaching Tupelo there was tornado damage and the area experienced a tornado about 2 weeks after we left the area. They don’t accept credit cards so only cash or checks. Yes, they accepted our out of state check. There were two small designated pet areas but neither of them where fenced. There were bag dispensers and garbage cans to dispose of waste. There is a “nature trail” beginning/ending at one of the pet areas in the park.

We stayed here for a night. They have a Good Sam discount. The park is close to US-209 but the access is along a windy and very narrow with a slight uphill grade secondary road making it difficult to remain in the lane of travel especially around the tight corners. The turn into park leads to a short (steep) uphill climb into the park on a gravel road. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were narrow but there was sufficient room to maneuver. The pull through sites were long enough for our 40’ RV with the toad attached. The sites were generally level but some of them in the short stay section have a significant slope requiring extensive blocking to get level. No privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connection that were generally midway along the side of the site. There was an outside table. No fire pits but that didn’t stop anyone as there were burn marks scattered around the campsites where others have had a fire. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. There are a few trees around the park so there could be some obstructions to the sky for satellite reception. Our Verizon hotspot reception was good. There was really no designated pet area but there was a large grassy field and sufficient interior roads to walk dogs. There were no bag dispensers and the garbage collection was the dumpster at the front of the park. For being in a potentially hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We would not stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The park is not that easy to get to & from US-84 as some GPS devices won’t find it because the park’s address is at the end of what appears to be a private road. If you use coordinates, the GPS might still have a problem in selecting a route over actual roads. There are some signs to get you there from the main highway through town. The access to the park requires climbing a little hill over an elevated levee road. When you get into the park, it sits right along the Mississippi River. There is a walking path along the river. Some of the path is concrete that changes to mowed grass. The interior roads are gravel. The radius of the turns is manageable. The roads are narrow but the traffic flow is suppose to be one way so the only issue is parked vehicles along the road. The sites are a mixture of concrete or grass parking pads. The pull through sites were not long enough for our 40’ MH with the toad attached. The concrete pads were generally level. But the drop off the front of ours (#124) is greater than comfortable. Not much privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (20/30/50 AMP), & a sewer connection that were generally midway along the side of the site. They charge $3/night more for using a 50 AMP connection. There was an outside table on grass. There is some tree encroachment on some sites. Opening slides was easy in the sites without tree encroachment. There seemed to be some long term residents. Some of the trees in the park could interfere with satellite reception. Don’t believe there is cable. Only over the air reception was limited to 3 or 4 channels. WiFi reception was intermittent at best. The designated pet area was along the outside edge of the park. The area was not fenced. There was sufficient area to walk dogs in the designated area and along the gravel roads. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste or receptacles to dispose of waste. They offer site garbage pick up each morning before 9 AM. There was only one dumpster located at the far end of the park. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. A threatening storm moved through with strong winds and rain. No tornados but it was concerning. The office building was probably a safe shelter due to its construction. But it was above ground. After it rained, there were standing pools of water along the gravel roads and grassy areas. We didn’t use the pool/restrooms/showers/laundry room but walked past the laundry room due to its location between the parking lot and the registration desk. The building was centrally located in the park so if you end up at the end of either of the camping areas, it is a long walk to the building. Probably would look for something else due to the cost versus amenities if we needed to stay in the area again.

We stayed here for a night. The park is located on top of Lookout Mountain. The access involves a steep climb up a state highway and then along a narrow, windy county road with short steep grades. For the longer motor homes (like our 40’), there is a sharp 90 degree “S” as you approach the park which makes it difficult to stay in the lane of travel. There are large rocks on each corner of the “S” curve and a slight down grade so there is no visibility through the corners. Good luck if you’re driving a long RV. Once you reach the office/camp store, there is very little parking for larger RV’s. Then there is yet another climb on a windy paved road to reach the campground. The interior roads and sites are paved. The roads & sites were narrow. The pull through sites were just long enough for our coach with the toad attached. This is another location that doesn’t understand the importance of a level site and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. The parking sites had a slight slope so we were able to level using our automatic air levelers. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections that were towards the rear of our site. They had an outside table and a fire pit. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. The trees encroach on some of the sites. Opening slides was easy in the site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception so be sure to ask for a satellite friendly site at check in. Our Verizon hotspot reception was good. No designated pet area but there was sufficient distance along the park roads to walk dogs. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste and the only garbage collection point was the dumpster at the entry to the campground. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. The bathhouses were recommended as shelters because they are more “substantial” than camping units. Be sure to ask for senior discount if you qualify. Would not recommend this park for long RV’s.

To reach the park, you have to travel through a residential area on a narrow, two lane road. The road has a tight 90 degree turn which has limited view, so if you meet another vehicle on this turn it could be ugly. Once you get into the park, you are required to disconnect your tow vehicle because all of the intersections in the park are "T" with 90 degree turns. There are large rocks at the intersections that reportedly damaged other vehicles attempting to make turns while towing. Most all of the sites are not level. They have complex slopes (two directions). Our automatic leveling system kept adjusting for the complex slope. The sewer connections stick up above the grade. They have lawn care days so that your sewer hose needs to be removed on those days, or elevated off the ground. There was shooting occurring within a short distance of the park, that continued past sunset.

The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 29 (Exit 79 – W 12th St/HWY 42). The park was located near the Interstate and along a rail road track that was in current use. Good thing the trains only ran during the day servicing a nearby gravel yard. The park was near the airport so there were some military jets making noise over head. The interior roads were paved but the sites were grass. Most all of the sites are along the perimeter fence so they are back ins. There was enough room between the RV and road for second vehicles to park. The sites were generally level but there might have been a slight slope towards the fence or swales across the site were tires sank into the ground so be selective in site choice if needed. No privacy between the sites. The sites are not clearly defined. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The water & electric connections are at the back of the sites along the fence making the need for long hoses or lines. The sewer connection was in the middle of the site at ground level. Opening slides was easy as the park was not full. There seemed to be enough room for slides when another RV came in next to us. No other amenities like WiFi. Believe there might have been a restroom/shower building but that was on the far side of the open field. There may have been an outside table available for longer stays but not sure about that. There were only a few trees on the other side of the open field were there seemed to be some sites so there was a clear view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. There was good reception on our Verizon WiFi hotspot and cell phone. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. There wasn't a designated pet area but there were a lot of places to walk the dogs. There weren't bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste but there were dumpsters to dispose of waste. The site host could only accept cash. If you wanted/needed to pay by credit card, you had to go in the office. We arrived on a weekday so that wasn't a problem. Not sure what would happen when the office was closed. We only stayed two nights as we needed to be in the area. Wouldn't have wanted to stay longer.

The park is not difficult to get to & from off Interstate 29/80 (Exit 1B) but there was some road construction in the area making travel a little bit of a challenge. This park is not what one would think a casino RV park should be. Let’s face it, it is just parking stalls along the outside edge of a parking lot. So all of the sites are back in, concrete/paved hard surface, very narrow and with a complex (two different direction angles) slope for water run off out of the parking lot. No privacy between the sites. When adjoining sites are occupied, there is very little if no clearance when slides are extended. Parking for second vehicles is in the parking lot. No room to keep towing or towed vehicles connected. The park could be rather noisy due to its location. Sites 27 through 44 are along the main road and nearest the interstate so they could be very noisiest. The lower the number of the site, the farther they are from the main road/interstate. They DO NOT have full hook ups – only water & electricity (50 AMP) which is located at the rear of the sites requiring long connecting hoses or lines. No other amenities. No Wi-Fi. Found the City provided a Wi-Fi connection that was reachable from the park. No designated pet area but there were some grassy areas adjacent to the West side of the parking lot. There were some sidewalks to exercise your pet as well. There were no bag dispensers or collection cans around the park to pick up & dispose of waste. There was a common building containing the restrooms/showers/laundry room. The showers were individual locking rooms inside the common building. They were acceptable. It seemed like a long walk to the casino to eat. There were only a few places to eat. The buffet was serving prime rib so we picked the little grill. It filled the need but wasn’t anything to rave about. The only choice for breakfast was the grill as the buffet wasn’t open. Would not recommend this park but there isn’t much else in the area to choose from. Wouldn’t want to stay more than a day or two when traveling through the area.

The park was interesting to get to. It was in a city park along a small river in the back of a residential area so the roads were not very wide. The street to the park was marked with the standard blue camp sign on the main road but after that there wasn’t any additional signage. The interior roads were paved and the sites were concrete. The roads were a little bit narrow but there was sufficient area to unhook the towed vehicle. There were only 8 sites one of which was used by the host so only 7 site for use. No pull throughs so only back-ins. The sites were long enough for larger RVs. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites but there was sufficient space between them. There was a 30 day maximum stay limit. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), and sewer connections. The connections were located about in the middle of the parking pad. The sewer connection was lower than the parking pad surface. No outside table or other amenities like Wi-Fi. There were a lot of trees so only a few of the sites had a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot and cell phone had good reception. No designated pet area. There weren’t bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. There were nice concrete walking paths throughout the park. Believe the path went through the connected park system. There was also a fenced dog park in town. It wasn’t close so you needed to drive there. We didn’t use the restrooms/shower. There was only one shower but it was difficult to find as it wasn’t marked. But it was in the same building with the restrooms. There were a few negatives. First was the non-traditional host. The host was a young couple with two toddlers. They were living in a pop up tent trailer without sewer. They were draining their kitchen sink grey water onto the ground even though there was a sewer fitting right near where their drain hose was located but their drain hose didn’t reach the connection. The male worked at Walmart so he wasn’t there during the day and the female seemed to get picked up to go somewhere during the day. They seemed to be developing their parenting skills as there was a lot of yelling at the children and not very attentive to them as one kept leaving their campsite and trying to go into nearby RV’s. There were only small garbage collection receptacles scattered around the park side that didn’t seem suitable for a campground. They only accepted cash in the self register pay station. Don’t believe they accepted reservations as it seemed to be first come-first served. And finally, the park had a lighting system on the basketball court so people were using the courts late into the night (about 10:30 to 11:00 PM). The quiet time (after 10:00 PM) didn’t seem to apply to the park recreational facilities only the camp area. But this was a nice oasis in a sparely populated area. There weren’t a lot of other acceptable choices. We would stay here again over the other City owned campground (Chautauqua Park) if in the area.

The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 135 using HWY 96. The GPS took us from I-135 to HWY 254 onto local roads. Wouldn’t recommend that route. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were not very wide and the turn radius were somewhat tight for larger RV’s. Most all of the sites were pull through but not necessarily long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. There were only a few back ins. The sites were level as the park was built on flat ground. The sites were somewhat close to each other. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The connections were centrally located along the sites but slightly elevated so sewer flow could be an issue. There was an outside table. There were a lot of trees throughout the park so sufficient space to open slides could be an issue. Due to the amount of trees in the area, a clear view of the southern sky to get satellite reception could be an issue. We specifically asked for a satellite accessible site. They didn’t offer cable and there were only a few broadcast stations available. Their WiFi reception was good. There seem to be a lot extended stay residents everywhere in the park with a lot of clutter and encroachment on the roads. Although their map and facilities list included a fenced dog area, no such area existed. The designated pet area was a large grassy field with a waste collection station. The only other option to walk the dogs was interior roads. Not a very good option. The trash dumpsters were conveniently located to our site. They might have been a walk from other sites. We only chose this park for one night stay because of the negative comments posted about the other parks in the area. For the cost of this park, it didn’t meet up to expectations. If traveling through the area again and needed a place to stay for the night, we would NOT return. Should have picked one of the other parks. We paid $45.00 with our Good Sam discount.

The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 70 (Exit 364B), but some of the local roads were not the best as they were narrow with low over hanging trees and possibly in need of repair. The park was located in a rural setting. It seemed pretty new. The park was enclosed with a fence containing a security coded gate for after hours. The interior roads and sites are concrete. The roads were sufficiently wide enough and the turns had good radius for larger RV’s. Most all of the sites were pull through and long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. There were only a few back ins along one perimeter fence line. The sites were not level as the park was built on a slope so the sites had complex (two directions) slope. There was sufficient open space between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The connections were centrally located along the sites. There was an outside table on a concrete pad. There were no trees in the park so there was sufficient space to open slides. There was a line of tall trees on the south side of the park so if you were too close to the south side you might not be able to get satellite reception. If far enough from the line of trees, there was a clear view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. But they do offer cable. The WiFi reception was good. There seem to be a few extended stay residents scattered throughout the park but not with the clutter seen in other parks. The designated pet area was a large fenced grassy area near the pool. There were sufficient interior roads to walk the dogs. There was a bag dispenser/collection station in the pet area to pick up and dispose of waste. The trash dumpsters were conveniently located to our site. They might have been a walk from other sites. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers/laundry room but looked in. The restrooms/shower facility looked very nice. The building doubled as the storm shelter. This park suited our needs during our one night stay. If traveling through the area again and needed a place to stay for the night, we would return. The fee we paid is based upon Good Sam discount.

The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 35 (Exit 1), but it is an interesting path if you use Exit 5 as there wasn’t any signage coming from that side once you get onto the casino property. There was construction going on to put in a new interchange right at the casino (between Exits 1 and 5). The park is located on the southeast end of the casino complex quite a distance from the casino and the interstate. The park was pretty quiet except for the nearby fire station. The interior roads and sites are concrete. The roads and turn radius were fine for RV’s towing something. The pull through sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. The interior sites are pull throughs. The sites along the exterior perimeter are back ins. Not much privacy between the sites but there is sufficient space between the sites so you don’t feel crowded. The sites were generally level as the park was built on flat ground. There are a few sites in the southwest corner of the park that have a little slope. The sites are full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The pull through sites have two utility connection locations so you can pull into the site from either end depending on which direction you want to face. They have an outside table on a concrete patio. What trees there are, are young so they don’t create any problems. Opening slides was easy due to the openness of the sites. All of the sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. There are a few broadcast stations. Our Verizon Wi-Fi hotspot had good reception. There seem to be some long term residents probably associated with the nearby construction. The designated pet area was along two outside edges of the park. There were bag dispensers/waste collection stations along the concrete path that runs along two sides of the park. There wasn’t any fenced area. The dumpsters were located on the southwest corner of the park. There were two buildings that contained restrooms/showers and laundry room. The restroom/shower and laundry facility was very clean and nice to use. The only issue was the air conditioner in the laundry room made the room cold. These buildings double as storm shelters. The outdoor pool also had a restroom/shower building. When you check in, they enroll you in their players club which gives you an immediate discount on site fees. The first night was free. A shuttle runs to the casino about every 25 minutes from the RV park. We went to the casino to eat, but there wasn’t much to choose from as the buffets were closed. The other restaurants were small café type locations spread throughout the casino. The casino is L shaped so it was a long walk to look all of the choices. None of them were very impressive. We ended up at the Toby Keith restaurant. The menu was limited and a little on the high side but there is a full bar. Other reviews recommend going to the golf course to eat. We should have done that. We spent a couple of days here.

The park is easy to get to from Interstate 44 (Exit 129) and to get to Interstate 35 (Exit 132B). The park is located in a rural setting. It is advertised as “big rig friendly” but since it was built on the side of a hill, the roads have some interesting grades and the ramps into or out of the sites have some interesting angles but the parking areas are level if your RV fits on the parking area. The interior roads are paved and sites are concrete. The roads were narrow and the turn radiuses were very tight especially for RV’s towing something. We dropped our towed to get around the turns and into the site. The interior sites are pull throughs. The sites along the exterior perimeter are back ins. Not much privacy between the sites as some of them are pretty close to each other and the elevations. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The utility connections are located in strange places depending on the site. There was an outside table on a concrete pad. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. The trees encroach on some of the sites. Opening slides was easy in the site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. But they do have cable. Their Wi-Fi reception was good. There was a very small fenced grassy area for small dogs only, but the park was undergoing some construction so it was difficult to get into the area. The only other place to walk dogs is on the internal roads. There were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. The dumpster was near the office so it wasn’t much of a walk for us but it could be for other sites farther from the office area. We stayed one night. Due to the terrain of the park, we would look for another alternative if we are traveling through the area again and needed a place to stay for the night.

The park was a short drive from Interstate 90 on paved roads. Recommend going through Oacoma rather than through Chamberlain. Going through Oacoma, you’ll pass another RV park that is right along the Interstate. The park is built on a slope so a lot of the sites had a slight complex (two different angles) slope making it difficult to level. The interior roads in the main section were paved except for the patch where the road seems to have washed out. In the area with pull throughs, the roads and sites were gravel. The roads were narrow. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The utility connections were along the middle of the site. The sewer pipe connection stuck up higher than the pad surface. There was an outside table. But during our stay there was a strong wind so staying outside wasn’t an option. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. The trees encroach on some of the sites & portion of the road. Opening slides was easy in the site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception be sure at ask for one if needed. Not much privacy between the sites as the area is pretty open but there is a lot of distance between the sites. The park’s Wi-Fi connection was good. Our Verizon hotspot had good reception, but our cell phone (Net 10 provider) had no reception even though we were right across the Missouri River from Chamberlain. The lights of Chamberlain were nice across the river. There were some designated pet areas with bag dispensers to pick up and dispose of waste. There wasn’t a fenced pet area. There was a hard surface trail to the South of the park between the road and river which was a nice walk. They give you access to the facilities at the nearby resort (indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room). We ate at the restaurant. The menu was limited and a little on the high side but the atmosphere was nice. There wasn’t much else to choose from in the area. We only stayed here one night to go to a nearby attraction. We wouldn’t have stayed if we didn’t want to go to the attraction. We would have continued down the road to find something else a little more suitable. AARP & Good Sam discounts available.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 25. Although the park was located near the Interstate, it was pretty quiet as it is on the edge of town. The view of the city lights at night was quite pleasant. The park was built on a slope so the sites were tiered but not necessarily level. The interior roads and sites were gravel. The pull through sites were long enough to accommodate our motorhome and toad. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer connections – and an outside table which was not on an all weather hard surface pad. The utility connections were towards the end of the site so you might need a lot of hose. There are no trees in the area so there was no encroachment on the sites & road. There was sufficient room to open slides. As there were no obstructions to the southern sky satellite reception was good. There were a few back-in sites. The free WiFi reception was satisfactory. There didn’t seem to be any long term residents in the park. The fenced pet area was located in the middle of the park. The surface was fine bark over a landscape fabric. Some of the fabric was exposed due to the lack of bark. The area had a couple of bag dispensers and waste collection cans. There was a walking trail along the edge of the park to walk. Dogs were welcome on the trail. There were bag dispensers along the trail to pick up waste. We used the restroom/shower building. It was very clean and modern. We didn’t use the laundry room. There was a large multi-purpose room in the main building which was very nice. No pool or hot tub. The office staff was very interactive as they own the park.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The park is easy to get to and from Interstate 40. Although the park was located near the Interstate, it was pretty quiet. The interior roads and sites were gravel, fairly level but narrow. The pull through sites were not long enough to accommodate our motor home and toad. We had to park in an adjacent empty space as there was no nearby overflow parking. They have full hook ups – water, electricity, & sewer connections – and an outside table. The connections were at one end of the site so you might need a lot of hose. Only 6 of the 40 sites had 50 amp. There were trees between the sites but they had been trimmed up so they didn’t encroach on the sites and road. There was sufficient room to open slides. There could be some obstruction to the southern sky which could affect satellite reception. WiFi reception was good. There seem to be a lot of long term residents which were located in the back in portion of the park. Their vehicles were parked along the road. The pet area was along the outside edge of the park. There wasn’t a fenced area. There weren’t bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. We didn’t use the restrooms or showers. They were controlled with a combination. The park was undergoing upgrades. The office wasn’t open very much. It was self register when the office was closed. Had to wait until the office opened to get the access codes for the WiFi and restrooms/showers.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The park is easy to get to and from Interstate 40. Although the park was located near the Interstate, it was pretty quiet as it is on the edge of town. The interior roads and sites were paved. There were two sections in the park. The newer section is for larger RV’s. The newer section was built on a slope so the majority of sites are not level but they were wide. A power line runs across the middle of new section. We stayed in the newer section. The pull through sites were long enough to accommodate our MH and toad. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50/30/20 amp), and sewer connections – and an outside table on an all weather hard surface pad. The utility connections were about mid-way along the site. There are no trees in the newer section so there was no encroachment on the sites and road. There was sufficient room to open slides. As there were no obstructions to the southern sky satellite reception was good. The older section had trees and grassy areas making it a park like setting so there could be some tree encroachment and satellite interference in that area. The free WiFi reception was good. However, there was no internet connection outside of the park for the 2 days we were there. The management was aware of the problem but did not get it resolved during our stay so there was no internet service. There were some long term residents located in the older section of the park. This is where the back-in sites are located. There didn’t seem to be the usual collection of material associated with these long-term residents as seen in other parks. The fenced pet area was located in the middle of the park. However, it lacked an all weather surface and the only access to the area was fouled for most of our stay by the sludge produced by the drilling rig near the main building. There was a gate to access the area outside the park if you wanted to walk your dog(s) there but the surface outside the park was dirt/sand. There were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. The sludge run off from the drilling rig and the park running water into the roads fouled some of the roads. We didn’t use the restrooms, showers or laundry room. The pool was still closed for the season. The hot tub was undergoing maintenance so it wasn’t open. The staff was very helpful. They provided an escort to your site. The complimentary continental breakfast didn’t offer much beyond cold cereal, hot beverage and baked goods.

We stayed here for 1 night while traveling through. The park is not that close to Interstate 25, but it is easy to get to & from. The view of the nearby mountains and lakes was nice. The campground was built on a slope so the sites were not necessarily level. The interior roads and sites were paved. Almost all of the sites in the Pinon campground are pull throughs. There were a few back-in sites. Only a few of the pull through sites were long enough to accommodate our motorhome and toad. The radius of some of the sites made them pretty short. They only have electrical hook ups (50/30/20 AMP) and an outside table which was not on an all weather hard surface pad. The utility connections were towards the end of the site so you might need a lot of cord. There are no trees in the area so there was no encroachment on the sites & road. There was sufficient room to open slides. As there were no obstructions to the southern sky, satellite reception was good. Since there wasn’t free WiFi, we brought our own Verizon WiFi. Reception was satisfactory, but coverage didn’t seem to be the same throughout the park. There wasn’t a specific pet area but leashed pets were allowed in the campground. There weren’t any bag dispensers and waste collection cans. We used the restroom/shower building. It was clean. There was a charge for the showers.

We stayed here for 1 night on our way out of Arizona as there wasn’t much to choose from in this area. The interior roads and site pads are gravel/dirt. The sites are narrow but long with a minor slope. It was pretty much just a parking lot. As long as your neighbor pulled to the end of their site, there was a little room between the next RV. But if RVs are parked adjacent to each other there wasn’t much room. The sites were long enough to keep the toad attached so no need to unhook. They have FHU (water, sewer & electric - 50/30/20 AMP). They charge depending on the electrical service you want - $5.00 extra/day for 50 AMP service. The utility connections are about in the middle to the end of the sites. There weren’t many trees so there was no encroachment and a clear view to the Southern sky for satellite reception. They provide complimentary WiFi which was password protected. The pet area was along the outer edges of the park. It was sand/dirt. They do provide waste collection bags. Although they have a leash law, some of the residents didn’t adhere to it. There are dumpsters around the park to dispose of waste if you’re walking your dog on the interior roads. Not much area to walk dogs outside of the park as the adjacent roads are somewhat rural without shoulders or sidewalks. There were common restroom/shower buildings located around the park. Access was controlled. Didn’t use the facilities so can’t comment on the cleanliness of them. The staff was friendly and helpful.

They offer on-line reservations (with a $5.00 booking fee) but the reliability is questionable. When we reserved our site, it was only available for two nights. After we stayed one night, the site was now available for a week. When we were looking for a site before booking the site at River Island, we checked the availability at Buckskin Mountain (about a mile closer to Parker). All of the FHU sites were reserved. After we arrived at River Island, we checked on availability at Buckskin Mountain again. The ranger told us there were 5 FHU sites available for three nights. After checking the 5 sites to see which one would work for us, we returned to the office to reserve a site. The ranger informed us that all of the 5 sites were no longer available. It took us about 10 minutes to check which site would work. So in 10 minutes, all 5 sites were booked on-line in the middle of the day. Very hard to believe. The park is along the main highway between Parker (about 12 miles North of Parker) & Lake Havasu City. It is close enough to go to either town for supplies. A little closer to Parker but Lake Havasu City seemed to be a better option. The interior roads and site pads are paved. Some of the turns at the end of the rows are very tight. There is a mixture of pull through and back in sites. Almost all of them are flat so it is easy to level. Only saw one site that needed some minor blocking for the RV to get level. There is a public boat launch & parking. They only have water & electric (50/30/20 amp) hook ups – No sewer! But there is a dump station for use on your way out near the exit. The two bays are short with a tight 90 degree turn to exit the park. The utility connections are about in the middle of the sites. Each site has an outside table on a concrete pad and an elevated BBQ. There is a lot of space between the sites. There are two common restroom/shower buildings located at opposite corners of the campground. During our stay, one of the buildings had lost its’ water heater so the 29 sites (the campground was almost full) had to share only 4 shower stalls. There was no anticipated replacement date. As a result of the demand, the showers were not very clean – hair, debris and mud were on the floor and the water wasn’t very hot. It was best described as warm. It’s safe to say that almost all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky with few obstructions so you should get good satellite reception. They even posted the setting for the satellite carriers. Our Verizon Hotspot Wi-Fi device didn’t work! Remember the park is only 12 miles from Parker. Cell phone reception was poor at best. There is a fenced pet area which is dirt. No waste collection bag stations or tools. There is a dumpster close to the area to dispose of waste. Some folks didn’t clean up after their pet. Not much area to walk dogs outside of the pet area due to the size of the campground and the number of campers with dogs. There weren’t any paths or trails to walk. There was a high pitch mechanical whine sound from the nearby service area. It could be annoying if you’re sensitive to that type of sound. The staff was friendly and helpful. We could hear the wild burros at night that were across the river. If we ever had to return to this area again, we would not stay here.

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Phoenix. Although the park isn't located on the Interstate, which complicates access, the traffic noise could be heard all night. The interior roads and site pads are paved but narrow and short. Some of the turns are very tight due to the width of the roads and the length of the sites. There is a mixture of pull through and back in sites. The back-ins are called Standard. They appeared to be most occupied by long term or permanent residents. There were some lot models in the standard spaces. A lot of clutter around the long term/permanent residents sites. The pull throughs are split into two types: Deluxe and Premium. The Deluxe are cheaper. Didn't see much difference between them. The Premium sites seem to have fewer trees between them. There was some tree encroachment in the Deluxe sites. The site length is short as we had to unhook our toad to fit into the space (just like everyone else). Almost all of them are flat so it is easy to level. There was really no place to park to hook and unhook the toad vehicles. They have FHU (water, sewer & electric - 50/30/20 AMP)but no cable. Didn't see any phone connection. They do have an interesting marketing scheme. There is a $3.00 per day electric fee so the daily fee doesn't include electric. This approach must make their daily fee look more appealing. Not sure if the electric fee is subject to tax. The utility connections are about in the middle to the end of the sites. You are required to elevate your sewer hose off the ground so be sure to have something to do that with. Each site has an outside table on a concrete pad and an elevated BBQ. There is not a lot of space between the sites. It’s safe to say that almost all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky with few obstructions so you should get good satellite reception. They do provide a list of 9 broadcast stations. Since they don’t offer complimentary Wi-Fi, our Verzion Hotspot Wi-Fi device worked excellently! They do claim to offer a “free modem access” as an amenity. Don’t know where the modem is located. There is a pay Wi-Fi internet service (Tengo) available in the park. The park is only 12 miles from Parker. Don’t know about the cell phone reception but based upon the Verzion Hotspot Wi-Fi device it should be good. There are a couple of fenced pet areas which are gravel. They do provide waste collection tools. Although they have a leash rule, some of the residents didn't adhere to it. There are dumpsters around the park to dispose of waste if you’re walking your dog on the interior roads. Not much area to walk dogs outside of the park as the adjacent roads are somewhat rural without shoulders or sidewalks. There are common restroom/shower buildings located around the park. Access is by key. There didn't seem to be a deposit for the key. There was some debris on the floor and the toilet rocked a little but they appeared in good shape for the age of the park facilities. We didn't use the pool, hot tub, laundry room or exercise room. The exercise room is located in a basement without any outside light. Didn't see a television to use while using the treadmill. The staff was friendly and helpful. If we ever had to return to this area again, we would not stay here.

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. The park is along the main road into town. Be careful as there is another park immediately north of this one. There were a lot of other MH's in the park. The prime season hadn't started so reservations weren't necessary but the owner said they fill up during the prime season. The interior roads and site pads are gravel. All of the sites are back in. They are flat so it is easy to level. They have full hook ups with water, electricity (50 AMP), and sewer. They also have connections for cable & telephone. All of the utility connections are at the rear of the sites so you might need some long hoses/cords to reach the connections. No outside tables but you get a small concrete pad. It’s safe to say that almost all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky with few obstructions so you should get good satellite reception. The park’s Wi-Fi was very good. The pet area consisted of an old drive-in movie theater. It is best described as primitive. There isn't anywhere else to walk the dogs. The only road is the main road with little or no shoulder and definitely no sidewalks. We didn't use the restrooms/showers, recreation room or laundry. No pool or hot tub. The owners were friendly and attentive. They don’t accept credit cards. They do accept cash and checks. If we ever had to return to this area again, we would stay here.

The park is near I-17 and 101, with fairly easy access. There was shopping within about 5 miles of the park. The park’s staff was only informative about the park’s services: the free Wi-F\i being in the lobby and library; the available over the air television channels and availability of internet connection at your site for a fee. There was no mention of garbage collection. At first glance the park appears old and tired. The majority of the units appear to be long term/full time residences. They seem to have been manufactured in the 1980’s and 1990’s. There appeared to be only one that might have been manufactured in the 2000’s. The park is divided into two different sections. One for people with dogs and the other for people without dogs. There are two different types of sites. The majority of the sites are back-in. There are few pull throughs that are in the middle of the park, right on the main entrance road. The pull throughs are gravel with a crest so there is a slope to the front and back from the center high point. The back-ins seem to have a minor slope as well (mostly front to back). The interior road is paved. The pull throughs offer a good view of the southern sky for satellite reception as the pull through sites are on an island with roads on both sides so there are no obstructions. The back-ins might pose more of a problem to get a clear view of the southern sky depending on the adjoining neighbor. They have full hook ups: water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), and sewer. There is no cable TV. The pull though sites have an outside bench and a small concrete patio. There is no outside table. The sites are gravel. Not much space between the sites. There was garbage collection at your site twice a week. Other than that, the common dumpster was located next to one of the fenced pet area. There was a fenced pet area with scooping utensils for clean up on each side of the dog half of the park. There were sufficient paved roads in the dog half of the park to walk the dogs. We only used the park’s free internet connection since the only access was in the main building. There is both a Cat5 and Wi-Fi connection in the main building. The pull through sites are fairly close to the main building. It just wasn’t convenient to pack up the laptop and head over to the main building. We didn’t use the indoor pool, hot tub, restrooms/showers or laundry room. All of these are located in the same building in the center of the park. We would only stay here again if we needed to be on this end of town for no more than a week.

The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 84. The park was quiet, but there weren’t a lot of campers since it was the off season. The interior roads and sites are paved. The road in the main loop is narrow. The pull through sites are on the outside of the main loop. There are only a few that are level & long enough to accommodate the combined unit (#2). The back in sites are on the inside of the main loop. They would be difficult to get into & out of due the angle & narrow road. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. They all had a campfire ring and outside table. Not much privacy between the sites. The main loop is shaded with trees everywhere. The trees encroach on some of the sites & portion of the road. Opening slides was easy in the site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Verizon internet reception was good. No designated pet area. There were sufficient paved roads & paths to walk the dogs. There were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. Geese adopted the area so there was fecal matter around the grass & walkways. The park is satisfactory for a short stay while traveling along I-84 but only in a few sites. We would stay here again if traveling through the area.

We stayed here for a night. The park is easy to get to and from Interstate 90. It is located between the Interstate and a railroad track that was in current use. On the other two sides was an auto repair business and car dealership. The park was rather noisy due to its location. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were narrow. The pull through sites were not long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. We barely fit into the site with our combination. Another coach came in later and was parked next to us encroaching on our exit. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. The sites are set up to share the common area between them. Sites have full hookups, water, electricity (50 AMP), and multiple sewer connections. Sites had an outside table. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. The trees encroach on some of the sites and a portion of the road. Opening slides was easy in a site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Wi-Fi reception was good. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. Some left their dogs tied outside of their units. The designated pet area was along the outside edge of the park. The area was not fenced. There wasn't sufficient area to walk the dogs. There were bag dispensers around the park for pet waste. The trash cans were full so it took several tries to find one empty enough to hold the garbage. After it rained, there were standing pools of water along the gravel roads. We didn't use the restrooms/showers/laundry room. The only thing that made our stay tolerable were the owners who were very polite and helpful. They were working in the park until dark raking leaves.

We stayed here for a night. The park is easy to get to and from I-84. The park was quiet; there weren't a lot of campers since it was the off season. The interior roads and sites are paved. The road in the main loop is narrow due to bushes encroaching. The majority of the pull through sites are on the inside of the main loop. There were two located along the closed loop. There are only a few that are level (74, 77, 55, 120, & 80). The back in sites are on the outside of the main loop. They would be difficult to get into and out of due the angle and narrow road. Sites only have water & electricity (50A), no sewer hook ups. They all had a campfire ring and outside table. Not much privacy between the sites. The main loop is shaded with trees everywhere. The trees encroach on the road and sites. Opening slides could be difficult. Some sites (previously identified) offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Verizon internet was weak and it was really slow. There is a fenced pet area. It was a grass area located down in the day use area at the other end of the park from the campground. It had containers for waste disposal. The geese had adopted the area. There were paths along the river for walking the dogs. We didn't use the showers or laundry room. The park is satisfactory for a short stay while traveling along I-84 but we recommend only those sites previously identified.

We stayed here for a night in a 40’ class MH with a toad. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 84. The park was quiet but there weren’t a lot of campers since it was the off season. The interior road and sites are gravel. Most of the park is fairly level. Not much privacy between the sites. Pretty close to being an open parking lot with just a few trees in the park. We were able to leave our toad hooked up in the site. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The sites had a campfire ring and outside table. Opening slides was easy as there isn’t much to interfere. Park’s WiFi was adequate for the night. Most, if not all sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. No designated/fenced pet area. There were sufficient area (roads & paths) to walk the dogs. There were no bag dispensers in the park. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers or laundry room.

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit the nearby Bryce Canyon NP.. The park is along Hwy 12 at the intersection with Red Rock Rd on the West side of town. Town doesn’t offer much. The park staff was very informative as to where to obtain services – in the next small town (Tropic) about 5 miles away. It was a short drive, less than about 20 miles, to Bryce Canyon. The park has two different sections. The first part is pretty flat so the sites are level. The back portion is built on a slope so the sites are angled to the access road. The interior road is gravel. The back in sites are along the outside of the park. The pull through sites are in the middle of the park. Most all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky to get good satellite reception. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The sites had an outside table and fire pit. The sites are gravel with grass between the sites. Not much space between the sites. The park’s Wi-Fi was good. There was a fenced pet area with bag dispensers. But there were sufficient gravel roads and grassy areas to walk the dogs. We didn’t use the laundry room. The pool was closed for the season. The front portion of the park was nice. Wouldn’t want to stay in the back portion due to the site arrangement. We were quite surprised at the overall experience as we don’t normally like KOA’s. We would stay here again if in the area, but only in the front portion.

We stayed here for 1 night in a 40’ class MH with a toad to visit the nearby National Park (Capital Reef NP). The park is at the intersection of HWYs 12 & 24, just east of town. It was a short drive (less than about 20 miles) to Capital Reef. The park is built on a slope so a lot of the sites are not flat or level. Some of the sites required quite a bit of blocking to get level. The interior road is gravel. The back in sites are along the outside of the park. The pull throughs are in the middle of the park. Most all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky to get good satellite reception. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 amp), & sewer. The sites had an outside table. The sites are gravel with grass between the sites. Not much space between the sites. The park’s Wi-Fi was good. There wasn’t designated/fenced pet area. But there were sufficient gravel roads and grassy areas to walk the dogs. There were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste but there were empty. It was nice little park. There was pasture land adjacent to the park where there was livestock (horses & sheep). We would stay here again if ever in the area.

We stayed here for 4 nights. We have never really liked KOA’s but there wasn’t much else available. A lot of the other parks in the area didn’t have clear view of the southern sky for satellite reception – mainly due to trees. Guess they are trying to beat the summer heat. But it doesn’t work well when the temperatures cool off. The park is right along the main highway several miles south of town. The park is built on a slope so a lot of the sites are not flat or level. They charged different rates depending on the day of the week. They provided an escort to the site. The interior roads are narrow, windy and gravel. There were just a few pull through sites that offer a view of the southern sky to get good satellite reception. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The sites had an outside table. The sites are sand – no gravel or concrete. Pretty much Zero privacy between the sites. Our site (#63) had a power pole with a junction box attached on the passenger side and overhead wires running over it. The pole was located so that we almost ran into it when we stepped out of our coach. The outside table was right next to the power pole. The park’s WiFi was good. There wasn’t a fenced pet area. There was a designated pet area but it was a field next to the park. Other pet owners didn’t clean up after their pets in this area. There were sufficient gravel roads to walk the dogs but a lot of the other guests didn’t follow the leash requirement. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers, laundry room or game room. The pool was closed for the season.

We stayed here for 4 nights to visit the nearby National Parks. The Grand Canyon North Rim and St George, UT are all within an easy day drive (a couple of hours in one direction). The park is centrally located in town along one of the major streets (HWY 89 ALT). The park is built on flat ground so the sites are pretty level. The interior road is gravel. Almost all of the sites are back in along the outside of the park. There are a few pull throughs that face the street. Not all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky due to trees. Our site had good satellite reception. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The sites had an outside table. The sites are gravel. There was some space between the sites. The park’s Wi-Fi was good. There was fenced pet area with bag dispensers to pick up waste in the pet area. There were sufficient gravel roads in the park and the adjacent city streets to walk the dogs. There were common areas with covered patio furniture to enjoy the good weather. Didn’t seem to be a lot of long term/extended stay folks. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers. The pool was closed for the winter. It was nice little park. It was convenient to services. The staff was multilingual. We would stay here again if ever in the area.

We stayed here for 2 weeks to visit the nearby National Parks and other attractions on our way to Phoenix. The park is connected with the nearby Cliff Castle Casino which is operated by the Yavapai-Apache Nation. There is a free shuttle between the park and casino. The park is easily accessed from Interstate 17 but you have to negotiate a small traffic circle if you’re traveling north. The park claims they have “level, concrete pads” but the park was built on a slope so a lot of the sites are not flat or level. This is clearly obvious when you see RV’s blocked up as high as 4 to 6” trying to get level. Some of the sites have two different pitches/slopes on the site. There is a mixture of back in and pull through sites. There seems to be more back ins than pull through sites. The basic sites are primarily smaller, back ins located towards the middle of the park. The larger, wider sites are pull ins-back out sites along the perimeter or pull throughs. Some of those required quite a bit of blocking to get level. The interior roads are paved and the site pads are concrete. There are a couple of tight corners to negotiate but they escort you to your site and assist with backing in. Most all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky with few obstructions to get good satellite reception. Some RV’s in the adjacent sites could obstruct the view of the southern sky interfering with reception as there isn’t much room between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. They also have connections for cable and phone. It appears only the higher priced sites have an outside table. The outdoor area is gravel with some grass around the higher priced sites. The park’s Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. There were times when we only received one or two bars for reception. They limit usage to one computer per site and also your usage (the system would prevent large downloads). We primarily used our Verizon hotspot device and the reception was good. There is a fenced pet area with bag dispensers behind the office building/club house. There was a large area adjacent to the park to walk/run larger dogs. There was sufficient paved roads in the park to walk the dogs but there were no garbage containers throughout the park to dispose of pet waste. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers. They were only accessible when the office building/club house is open because they are controlled by keyed entry. We did use the laundry facility. The machines only take a debt type card which you can get from the office. Some of the machines didn’t work well accepting the card. There were many comments about how people preferred the coin operated machines. The pool and hot tub are out door connected to the office building/club house. The pool is open the same hours as the office building/club house. It was nice park. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Daily site side garbage pickup. There wasn’t much around the park as it is on the edge of town in a rural setting. We would stay here again if ever in the area because we like parks connected to casinos.

We stayed here for 5 nights to visit the several nearby National Parks, and other attractions. There isn’t much to choose from in Page. The only other option is the RV park out at Lake Powell. The park is along a main road in town with easy access to the highway. The park is centrally located to the other services & shopping in town. The park was built on a slope so a lot of the sites are not flat or level. So some sites require a lot of blocking to get level. It seems that the flatter, leveler spots are used by the long term/extended stay residents which there appears to be a lot. The interior roads are paved and the sites are gravel/sand. There is a mixture of back ins, pull through, and tent sites. Many of the sites offer a good view of the southern sky with few obstructions to get good satellite reception. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. Cable is an extra fee. The sites had an outside table. Pretty much Zero privacy between the sites. The park’s Wi-Fi was excellent especially with the number of folks in the park. There wasn’t a fenced pet area. There were designated pet areas along the outer edge of the park; each with bag dispensers to pick up waste. The pet areas were covered with large pebbles making it difficult for the dogs to walk and clean up after them. There were sufficient roads and a trail to walk the dogs. We did use the exercise room which was adequately stocked with equipment & a television. We didn’t use the indoor pool or hot tub but they were centrally located in the park. We would stay here again if in the area.

Sites are narrow with large rocks lining each side to protect the utility hook ups. The utility hook ups are spread along the length of the site. Sewer is in the front so you'll need a lot of hose to reach the fitting. They charge a pet fee of $5 per pet but provide nothing for the fee: no fenced pet are and no waste collection bags. The site fee was $45 but the pet fee brought the total up to the $56. The pet fee is also charged a tax. Wi-Fi is dependent upon the number of people using it. When we were here, there were only three or four other RV'ers, so connection speed was adequate. Trains run in the canyon just across the river from the park but they are moving slow so their noise wasn't very loud. The park can charge whatever they want as there isn't any competition in the area. They call themselves a "resort" so they charge accordingly. We only stayed here because we needed to do something in the area. Wouldn't stay here again.
