This place certainly is not worth the $35 a night! Nothing there but an overnight stop so guess it is supply and demand. Weeds growing in all the gravel site areas. Strange sites with gravel for your rig and a small blacktop pad beside it with no tables? No shade anywhere. Was told pull through sites for 45' rigs, but there were plenty of vacant sites and no 45' rigs came in the night we were here. What really got me was the sprinklers that came on at 3:00 am and sprayed all over our trailer!
Nice campground, above reviewers pretty much covered it all. Nice owner works around the place all the time so a "Be back at" notice may be on the front door! No shade as the trees are too small. Would stay again if in the area, right off I-84 about 10 miles north of Caldwell, but far enough off the freeway so no noise.
As the above reviewer has stated the freeway noise is constant from I-15, not to mention the high powered boat noise also. The state of Utah ought to be ashamed for the condition of this park. It looks like nobody does anything here. There are weeds everywhere, very little trimming, brush taking over everything, display ramadas are filthy and covered with droppings from the trees, leaking faucets, etc. You have zero view of the lake from any site in the campground due to all the overgrowth. They take your money and basically tell you the campground is up the road, no map provided and it's very hard to find your spot as some have large numbers and the rest very tiny numbers with your "reservation card" stuck in a slot. The fee was for a online reservation which includes a reservation fee.
The "Red Canyon Campground" is a NFS "Dry Camping" type campground located approximately 4 miles East from the intersection of Hwy 89 and Hwy 12 on the right hand side going East towards Bryce Canyon. The first review here is not for this campground but for the "Red Canyon RV Park" (a private park)located approximately 1 mile from the same intersection on the left going East on Hwy 12. I have also given the correct website for this campground (hopefully it will be changed as it was wrong also). The $6 rate is for Golden Age Passport otherwise the rate is $12.
This is a great "dry camping" type campground in the cool pines. Located about 10 miles north of Flagstaff on Hwy 89. Campground is adjacent to the Sunset Crater Visitor Center. The $9 rate reflects Golden age pass otherwise $18 night without the pass. Sites and roadways are all paved.
Lots of permanent residents (mostly loggers according to office help). Pull through sites are actually double sites where the first one in is in front and can exit easily, and the second one in has to back out if the first one does not leave before them! Sites all gravel. Next to truck stop but not too noisy. OK for an overnight stop.
OK park for an overnight. Sites are crammed in too close together and are small. Sites are gravel with paved roads. Friendly check in. This park appears to have about 80% permanent residents which seems to be the norm for commercial parks. Supposed to have WiFi but not working at this time, check in lady had no idea what was wrong with it. Trees are very small so no shade.
I think the last two reviews were either written by friends of the new owners or by one of the many permanent residents of this park as there are many! The park is right on Hwy 50 so there is considerable noise as it is very busy. The park is beside and behind a gas station with a convenience store. I wouldn't really say there are shade sites, maybe two or three. Check in was friendly. Not much to offer other than a overnight stop and certainly not a destination park.
The park is still a nice place but the main problem is that it is overrun with permanent residents and ones that leave for work early on noisy motorcycles! Not good for the weary traveler. I realize that park owners need the income but at the same time they are running off good customers. Friendly check-in. Some freeway noise.
Park has new owners as of June 07. Sites are way too close together. Not one shrub or tree separating any site. Not a single tree in the park. Most sites not level. All sites had dead grass between them, but new owners appear to be removing some grass and replacing with river rock. WiFi is pay thru a provider with credit card used online when connecting. Lots of permanent trailers around perimeter of park, some with noisy kids and dogs. Park is not on lake and no lake view!
Nice park and very popular in the summer from inland local residents. Lots of families with children. Newer loops nearest beach (no sites have a ocean view or are "on" the ocean) have water and electricity only. The sites farther from the beach include sewer. Reservations are a must in the summer months. Vehicles are allowed to drive on the beach. Lots of kite flying and kite festival was being held while we were there.
Fairly nice park, lots of grass (you park on the grass) and shade trees. This place has a large swimming pool that is open to the public for a charge so lots of kids and people here that are not camping here. OK for an overnight or for those with families that want to camp and swim in a large pool. Sites a little un-level and sewer connections are uphill a little.
Just a gravel parking lot behind the Shell gas station, but there is nothing else for miles in either direction so ok for an overnight stay. Some highway noise. Old utility connections and close together sites. No bathrooms or showers, suppose you could use gas station bathrooms up front.
I have to agree with the prior reviewers for this park. It is in need of much repair. Staff lies to you all the time. When making a reservation they give you the impression that they are booked solid, not so as out of 150 sites maybe 20 were occupied the 4 days we were there. There really is no WiFi in the park and no access inside the motel lobby either. The only place the WiFi might work is inside the cafe at the gas station next door which they said was theirs also. I have great external WiFi antennas and they have worked everywhere except here. Air Cards do not work in the area either. We were not the only ones that could not receive any WiFi here. The sites are dirt and mud when it rains and are not level. The power boxes are old and need updating. The (I assume) water tank beside the park has noisy motors running day and night. The only restroom in the RV Park is old and dirty with no soap or paper towels. The cruddy showers are also pay! It is the only game around so they could care less if you ever return. The Rio Grande Village at the other end of the park has two campgrounds one with hookups which resembles a three lane parking lot with rigs lined up on both sides of the center lane, no shade and only holds about 30 rigs. The non-hookup campground on the other hand is very nice and private and shady with lots of grass, if you don't need hookups or tent camping this one is the right choice. The Chisos Basin campground near the center of the park also has no hookups and will only accommodate rigs of 20' or less and is adjacent to the lodge. You wouldn't want to drive anything larger up the road to it anyway with its many twists and turns.
Nice clean park, friendly check in lady. Roads and sites are all gravel with small pine trees separating sites. Our site was not level and looked like many were not. Sites are kind of terraced also. Park is right in town and road noise is present but not as loud as the trains that run every hour on the hour blasting their horns several times right beside the park! Cable TV has limited channels. Wi-Fi is through a pay service.
Nice park and things not deserving of a higher rating are the gravel, somewhat un-level sites and no wifi although many in our rally group (140 trailers) were "hijacking" wifi from a nearby residence or business. Lots of shade trees in the older section and very close to downtown Bandera. Eleven miles from Medina and the famous Cider mill and the Medina Apple Pies!
OK stop for the night right along side of I-10 so there is quite a bit of freeway noise. Nothing more than a stop over though as it is all dirt and gravel and no shade, but what do you want for $10 a night for full hookups? ($2 more for cable tv). Would stop again if ever in area.
This was the "worst" campground that we have visited to date! This park needs to be closed down or closed for 6 months and renovated by the county. Riverside County, CA ought to be ashamed of this facility. There was so much dirt and dust that we will never get our rig cleaned. The park is in total disrepair with open holes and trenches dug up (long ago) that have never been repaired, broken water connections (some in our group had to connect to neighbors water). The restrooms were disgusting to say the least and rarely somewhat cleaned with mosquitoes everywhere. Showers are .25 for 3 minutes (give me a break). I can't for the life of me figure out why this place is so busy? Must be because people in CA don't know what a really nice campground is like and this is all they have? No wonder they have a $13 cancellation fee plus you forfeit your first night fee as people would leave here in a heartbeat if they could get their money back. And then there is the echo from the police gun range going pop,pop,pop at all hours of the night and day. The "lake" is a man made pond that is surrounded by concrete. We will never return!
Nice campground up on a hill with views of the valley below. Great views at night of all the stars. Freeway noise was not a problem here as it is quite a ways back from the freeway. Lots of hiking trails. Bad water here also with signs warning of the nitrates in the water. Has nice dump station. Gets pretty busy starting in Oct-Nov as the weather cools off. Very large sites with lots of space between them. Would stay here again if in area. Has three loops with one loop for tenting or rv's with no hookups at all at $12 day.
Where do I start? Upon check-in was informed that the water is no longer drinkable nor to be used in cooking??? This park is beginning to show its age and in need of some maintenance. Don't think there is a level site in the park. The Wi-Fi is through a pay service called RVLogon which for $6 a day is almost worthless and slower than slow! Now if that is not enough the I-10 freeway noise is totally unbearable as you might as well park on the shoulder of the freeway, you are that close. Anybody that thinks this park is a 10 must be deaf!
This park is right in town so is convenient to shopping and restaurants etc. The sites are small and stacked together like cordwood. The wifi is free but somewhat slow so can't complain too much there because it is free. Lots of older mature trees. Back row backs up to a high school with batting cages along he fence so all you hear is the thump, thump of the balls being hit. Moab is a very busy little town with lots of bicyclists, atvs and 4wd vehicles. Pretty expensive for what you get. The so-called concrete pads are barely large enough for a pop-up trailer let alone any normal size rv.
This is a National Forest (NFS) campground next to highway 12 on the way into Bryce Canyon National Park approx 15 miles before the visitor center. The closest town is Panguitch which is approx 11 miles from the campground. This is a very rustic campground and the road noise from rt 12 dies down about dark every night. There is a wash at the entrance to the campground which can leave you stranded either inside or outside the campground when it rains hard which it did to us one afternoon while we were inside the campground. Sites are spaced far apart and roomy with picnic tables and fire pits set in a concrete patio. There is an on-site campground host during the season. We stayed there thru the last day the campground was open until it closed for winter on Oct 14th.
Typical for a national park campground. Very busy park even at the end of the season (October). Park could use some maintenance with the roads and sites as many had large mudholes since it had just rained and mgmt could care less. Has nice dump station with fresh water also to fill tanks. Rate was for Golden age pass otherwise $18 night. Shuttle buses run until end of October then you can drive your car anywhere into park. Zion is a great place to visit, spent 3 days there hiking and touring the park.
This campground is nothing more than a dirt and gravel parking lot across the busy highway from their trading post store. The sewer connections are totally unusable as they are inside an "island" that the concrete is about 12-15 inches above the ground. The permanent rigs (2 or 3)that were there were elevated approx 12 inches under the tires to be able to use the sewer. This is on an indian reservation and there are about 12 small mobile homes along the back of the rv park with traffic going in and out 24-7 using the only entrance to the rv park. If you have no place elsewhere to go and just need a stop for the night then it is just barely ok, otherwise keep going.
Nice clean newer park with trees planted but have quite a few years to go to make any shade. Easy check in. Nice concrete pads and gravel roads. Not much else to choose from in area. Scotty's in town has about 10 sites that is nothing more than a parking lot. Free Wi-Fi.
This park finally has new owners, yea! We have stayed here before and the previous owners were more concerned about selling and getting out than taking care of business. New owners seem nice and am sure will do well. Would be a 10 except for some freeway noise and no wi-fi.
This is more of a "rustic campground". All sites are dirt and gravel with aging hookups. Plugs have no covers or circuit breakers, sewers are non threaded pvc pipe sticking up out of the ground that plug up frequently. Faucets drip water when not hooked up. Right on ocean with nice beach although was windy during our stay. Would not recommend for larger rigs though. Highway into Tofino is very rough and winding for many miles. Everything from food, gas, gifts, etc. is very expensive (about double that of prices in the US. Gas was $116.9 per litre. They also charge $1 for showers with signs stating conserve water but as mentioned before water hookups dripping everywhere.
All gravel sites with side by side hookups so one unit has to face the road and one the other way, not good as they put trailers in motorhome sites and vice versa. Older park. Sites are wayyyyyy to close together. Since Victoria harbor is the airport there is constant seaplane noise taking off starting before 7am everyday until dark and if that does not get you then the constant hordes of seagulls making noise will. Only thing going for this park is the waterfront and closeness to downtown Victoria otherwise I would rate it a 4. Way too expensive for what you get. WiFi is $9.95 day or $21.95 a month again too much. If that isn't enough they also charge you for showers!
Park is nothing more than a gravel paring lot. No trees, shrubs and no privacy. Located right on HWY 101 so constant traffic noise. Showers are pay (.25 for 6 min). Free Wi-Fi. City ordinance prohibits sewer hose from laying on ground so bring something to elevate it. Right across hwy from Tilamook Cheese Factory (over 30 flavors of yummy ice cream). OK for one night stay.
Made reservations 6 months in advance and specifically asked for a shade site and when arriving at site only to discover site was in full sun! Was told no other sites available, but other shady sites remained vacant during our stay. Low voltage at site. Only one person in office so check-in was very slow as many people waiting, she was nice though. Modem hookup is through pay phone outside.
Where do I start? Gal in office asked if we wanted hookups or no hookups, we chose hookups, little did we know that only meant electric and water until we reached our site. Power voltage was very low, dirty dusty sites and roads. Sprinklers were running 24/7 but they charge for showers??? Dogs were running loose everywhere, permanents doing what they wanted was obvious as no one in management was checking on anything. No TV reception or cable. Would not stay here again.
Nice little park. Roads and sites are all gravel. Closest sites to lake are about 100' so not truly "waterfront", but all sites would have some water view. About 20 miles from Bodie State Park. Nice owners. Most sites taken by long term seasonal campers as park is not actually open all year. They are planning on installing Wi-Fi soon.
Nice overnight park. Would have rated an "8" if not for freeway noise and truck stop located between park and freeway so constant diesel noise. Also Wi-Fi is $4.95 a day and not free which is too much. Easy access from I40 at Exit 66. Very clean private showers and restrooms. Rate is for Good Sam.
OK for an overnight stop. Older park that could use upgrading. Water connections in old rotting boxes, electrical needs upgrading. Don't think there is a level site in the place. Grass and gravel sites and next to busy Hwy 101 so constant road noise. No TV reception or cable TV. Free Wi-Fi. About 7 miles from ferry terminal to Victoria. Nice owners though.
Sites are near lake and are grass and gravel. Rest rooms are very old and small (did I say small). Old and broken 30 amp plugs in need of updating. Sites are all un-level. No TV reception or cable TV. No Wi-Fi, no modem. They do not take reservations, fist come first served. Pay at store across road and go find your own site. OK for an overnight stop, but would probably not stop here again. 3 1/2 miles off Hwy 101.
We had reserved 2 "full hookup" sites (for us and traveling companions) several months ago for a visit in July 2006 and thought everything was in order. We were the first to reserve our sites out of a group of 9 trailers traveling together. All others subsequently made their own reservations for "full hookup" sites also months ago. One of the campers called to speak with the owner the other day by phone and was informed that our "group" would not have any "full hookup" sites as she had reserved them for other people and were full up, but we could all be grouped together with one 30amp plug and one water spigot! I called immediately and was told "sorry would you like to cancel?" and I replied seems to me you could tell the other campers that reserved after we did that you had made a mistake and THEY would not have the full hookup spots and was told "sorry I won't do that!". I then told her that I would check and see what other parks were available and she asked again "do you want to cancel?" and I said no, not yet until I call you back and let you know. Well, you guessed it, I called back 2 days later to cancel and she had already canceled us! Beware of the practices at this park.
Have reviewed this park before and in my opinion for the rates that they charge it is no longer worth it. $37 nite for the outskirts of Bakersfield and $33 with Good Sam and other cards??? The park has sites of loose pea gravel, orange blossoms & leaves and mud when it rains to track into your rv. We arrived shortly before 7pm on a weekday and the office was closed. They want you to find your site from a map and then pay them the full rate and do everything yourself and if you don't have the correct change or want to use a credit card (card users have to pay the $37 rate) then you are out of luck - give me a break!
I have reviewed this campground before but this stay was different. The park seems to be going downhill, lacking in maintenance and a "don't care" attitude. The park is owned by the city but a private concessionaire manages and runs the park. It almost seems like the lease is up and the management does not care. They have now allowed anybody off the street to use the laundry even. We had to wait to wash our clothes becase the locals were using the machines. When I complained they said that it was the only public machines in town so they allowed it! Locals also were using the tv and game room. Sites are not cleaned and dogs allowed to do their business everywhere with no cleanup. The baths were not cleaned in our 4 day stay and t-paper was slung all over the mens room. I told them about it on the second day and was never cleaned in the 4 days we were here! Such a shame for a nice location and park, but because the park remains full most of the time they don't seem to care.
OK park for an overnight. Highway noise but was quiet at night because traffic stopped. Nice owners/managers. Only has 50 amp plugs so an adapter is needed but supplied by park. All gravel roads and sites. Not much else in the area to choose from. Was wet and cold when we were there so a lot of standing water and wet leaves etc.
Nice rv park. Very clean. Could not rate it a ten because of two things - cable tv is only 6 channels and wifi is $4 extra a day and super slow. Casino is small but has inexpensive meals. Lots of grass so that means sprinklers! Gas station also on property with decent prices. Would stay here again.
This is a nice state park but some things need to be updated, especially the restrooms and the showers. No heat in the restrooms either, no shower curtains. Nice small lake with ranger guided pontoon boat tours for $3. Quiet at night. Only 34 sites have power and water. Dump Station, small store. Small village of Patagonia 7 miles away. All sites are dirt and small gravel and most sites are not level. This is a birdwatchers paradise and caters to the birdwatching crowd. More species of birds than you can count.
Like others have said this is an "Urban" park in town with a lot of campers visiting Disneyland. It is definitely too far to walk to Disneyland, but there is a shuttle that comes and goes frequently. We ended up in a site that backed within 2-3 feet from an old permanent mobile home, not very aesthetic! Water from sprinklers sprayed on the side of our trailer. It is just an OK park while visiting Disneyland, so all we were doing there was sleeping anyway. Wi-Fi worked fine and was $15 a week.
Ten sites on oceanfront that have water and electric (30 amp) only. If you can get one of these sites and can stand the cold wind or stay inside of your monster motorhome with a windsheild that faces the ocean then maybe you would be ok otherwise the rest of the sites are so crammed in together there is zero privacy. The back of our trailer was within 5-6 feet of four other units and you could hear everything in the other campers units. The parks layout is very bad. Park is very old and needs upgrading. All dirt and gravel roads and sites with unmowed grass and weeds with lots of gophers and resulting dirt goper mounds! Cable TV is a satellite dish with 8 channels that have a lot of interference. WiFi was horrible with a weak signal (and we were near the office), and even though it was free it was not worth having. A lot of the sites are not level and sewer connections had to run uphill in several sites. Check-in was friendly. Would not stay here again.
Within walking distance of beach. If you like dogs then this is the place for you! Some campers had 3-4 dogs and everybody takes their dogs to the beach. Some sites have 30 amp and water only and others have 20 amp, water & old sewer cast iron connections with no way to seal your hose. Washington state needs to upgrade this park.
I give the campground an "8" and only because of no wifi and the closeness to the freeway noise otherwise it could be a "10", but the owner's wife a gets a "1". We arrived and paid for 3 nights stay and while gone all day on the second day we arrived back to find a nasty note on our rv that stated "Checkout time is 12 noon!!! This site has been reserved." When we arrived around 4 pm I went to the office to find out what they meant and was told sorry they had made a mistake and we were fine where we were, and the owner's wife had left the note, but did she come back and remove it, NO! She was also overheard complaining that somebody had left the lights on in the men's bathroom. I understand that this park has been sold and waiting for the new owner to take over, thank god or we would probably never stay here again, and we have stayed here several times before!
Average KOA, with dirt and gravel roads and sites. Very friendly onsite managers. Wifi charged at $5.95 for 12 hours thru Hotspotzz which is too much for 12 hours. Electrical voltage was low. Price too high for area and there were lots of empty spots available. Town of Panguitch is very old and small. 20 miles to Bryce Canyon.
Great little park with lots of shade trees and grass. Paved roads and concrete parking pads for RV's with picnic tables. Very peaceful park even though close to highway, so some road noise. Would stay here again if in Brigham City area.
Park is all gravel with grass & weeds between sites that are not watered during summer months. Trees have been planted but are still way too small to provide much shade yet, maybe someday. Free wifi was nice feature. Friendly people at check-in. Good park for exploring Glacier Nat'l Park and is about 5 miles from west entrance.
Park is located right downtown. OK for an overnight stop, but not a destination park. Park is 95% filled with permanent RV's. Only a few overnight spots right next to main street running thru Clarkston. We really didn't care as we were gone all day on a Snake River jet boat trip.
Beautiful campground overlooking Lake Easton. No sites directly on the water though and view of lake is thru the tons of towering fir trees. Has a boat ramp with maximum 10 hp motor allowed. This is a kid friendly park as there is a large swimming area roped off in the lake with a small beach area. We would have rated the park higher except for its location right next to busy I90 which produces nonstop traffic noise thruout the park.
Great campground if you want to dry camp. Very dark and quiet at night. Lots of rock formations. We were there the day after the 4th of July weekend and campground was pretty much empty as 107 degrees daytime and 67 at night.
Older park with mostly permanent RV's which were pretty well kept up. Trains go by park about every hour and are very loud, also crop dusting planes flying low all the time over park and very noisy. Good for overnight stop as nothing else in area. Cash or check only. Nice folks run the place.
Have stayed here before. Campground is very wooded with gravel sites, picnic tables and fire pits. Park is always full in summer. 30amp electric in our site was running low voltage. WiFi is charged through a provider, for $3.00 an hour or $6 per 24 hours. They only accept cash or checks.
If you like a park that is very old and rustic, dusty and not maintained very well, then this is the place for you! Way too much dust. We were there 3 days and although they do use an old water truck to wet down the roads, they never once came down the road we were on. There is a new housing development just starting to be built at the rear of this campground and the heavy equipment started in at 7am and continued all day. It appears that the owners are just waiting for the right offer from a developer to sell to as the maintenance is very lacking. Will not stay here again.
Excellent state park! Lots of families here and very popular this time of year. No reservations, first come booking basis. During the spring they have performers and shows on Friday and Saturday nights, very nice. Very quiet park at night. Campground hosts keep a watchful eye on things. Close to the Verde Canyon Railroad and the town of Jerome. We are going back soon.
Park is 90 percent permanent RV's. All the good sites are taken by the permanents. The overnighters are put next to the highway (very noisy) and little shade. The sewer connections were uphill in this area. The supposed riverfront sites they advertise are 100' straight up a bank and you have to stand on the edge to see the river, so they are not "on the river". The advertised "internet connection" was an old very small laptop in their office that you had to use. Would not stay there again and moved to Deadhorse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood.
Stayed here before. Campground clean as are the facilites. Lots of orange trees. Lots of one nighters stay here when passing through Bakersfield. $25 rate is with discount and must be cash or check, otherwise regular rate with credit card. Will stay here again.
