First, heed the words of wisdom regarding not coming in over Hood River bridge. While it is passable, it would be hard on the nerves after a day of pulling. The entrance to the park, as well as some of the turns within the park are tight, but again possible. We travel in a 39' fifth wheel and were able to maneuver successfully. The park itself is quite nice. All the spaces are paved with greater than average spacing between sites with trees. There is a picnic table at each site. Everything is well maintained with attention to detail. The bathrooms require a code and are clean. While we didn't use the showers, they do take quarters to use them. There are laundry facilities on site too. The owner and his son are quite pleasant as are others who work here. Yes, there are trains, but it's not that bad, and I'm noise sensitive. You are on a river and most rivers I've seen do have train tracks on them. Given the fact you are in a gorge, a lot of people and transportation share the same space. You are right off the main highway, so there is some highway noise for all the reasons I stated earlier. There's a wall between the road and the campground. This is the nicest campground in this area. They provide cable in their pricing as well. There's a very nice dog park too. The Wi-Fi is usable with hardly any loss in bandwidth when the park is full. We liked it so much we extended our stay.
The nightly rate quoted was based upon the premium location weekly rate. We've given out 10 ratings to very few locations, but this park deserves it. The spots had a ton of room, were paved with large bricks and had a storage facility on the location. Instead of a picnic table, you have a dining settee with two chairs. There are back-in sites and pull-throughs. The grounds are well cared for with the groundskeepers picking up pine cones that fall. A newspaper is delivered to your door daily. There is movie night every other week with a movie for the children showing first then one for adults with free popcorn for all. There's coffee/pastries every morning too. They have an exercise room, hot tub, and sauna but we coudn't find its location. They have a certified yoga instructor there each Saturday. This gives you an idea of what to expect. Their customer service and hospitality was second to none. We would definitely return here when in the area.
First, this park is not in Bend. It is about 37 miles SW of Bend. Do not trust your GPS. Use their directions. This is not an RV resort, but it is a very nice campground. Our site backed up to the lake where we saw bald eagles and osprey. You can see snow covered mountains too. We couldn't stay the entire month we booked unfortunately because their power was not reliable. We did have LTE Verizon coverage in our spot which really surprised us for the location. I don't think all spots were this fortunate. We work from our rig, so this is important to us along with power. The owner told us the power was installed 35 years ago and couldn't confirm its reliability, so we had to leave after two nights unfortunately. On check-in, we weren't charged the $1 fee, and the balance was refunded when we had to leave early. The store and surrounding grounds were in tip top shape. If you do stay at this campground, you would be wise to have a power monitoring system on your rig. We would consider returning. It's a great location. You are remote, so just be prepared for it. It reminded me of places we'd tent and popup camped in the past. It had that vibe.
This is an older homey campground, designed when RVs didn't have slideouts. The spacing is adequate, but the picnic table can be closer to the sewer hose than you are used to when parked. All sites are perpendicular to the horseshoe parking lot. We had no problem parking even when the truck next to our site did not move. The owner came out as we drove in and advised us of our site number. She said her husband would come out to help park us if needed. As we checked cell coverage, he came over to the site with our mail and literature about the park. When we checked the cell signal, it was marginal. While I checked with the owners before booking about cell coverage, we noticed there were disclaimers on their literature. We work from our rig. When we logged in the next day, there were issues. We found out the cell service is supported by the local phone company for the coastal region, and others who depended on reliable signal were frequently challenged at this park. We had to leave the park the next day after planning to stay for one month. Their monthly rate is $360 with a $60/deposit for electricity. You are responsible for your electricity costs. The power was clean with 50 amp service. If cell coverage is important to you, be aware this area of the state is coming up to speed, and you will very likely experience speed/connectivity issues. Overall, the park was in good shape and acceptable. They have a lovely walk down to the river with a two acre dog run where your dogs can run off leash. It's a very nice location, and when we retire and leave all this technology behind, we hope to stay here again.
This is pretty much a one night campground for folks traveling the interstate which butts up against this campground. The interstate noise is not bad, and I'm noise sensitive. The campground is for sale, but don't let that worry you. The rates posted are substantially higher, but give the phone number a ring and it will be reduced especially if you are a member of camping "clubs" like Good Sam. All sites are pull through and fairly level. The back row of 12 are all FHU, the middle row of ~14 are water/power and front row is all tent camping. Dump station on site in the back row. There is shade here too. All sites are pull through. Only 30 amp though. Plenty of room between sites. No owner/work campers on site so you are on the honor system for payment. They do allow you to wash/wax your rig on site. There is no wifi/cable. We were able to get satellite reception. Verizon data/cell service were terrific. The Riverside Restaurant just a little drive down the road will provide a good meal with ample portions and acceptable pricing. If you get a chance to make it to Buhl, we found an amazingly good Mexican restaurant called La Plaza. Pick up some of her tamales for the freezer. We did when we were here earlier in the year. She wraps them individually, and if she doesn't have them ready, she'll make them for you if you provide her enough time. Her food is really not to be missed. Hagerman is a beautiful area with good Harley rides, hot springs down the road, fossil beds and the Oregon trail ran through here. We would return to this campground.
This is our second time at this park in a year. Long pull throughs, lots of shade, very good wifi, probably difficult to get satellite because of trees, no cable provided, 50 amp service and good Verizon cell service. You will probably have to level your rig but not that much. There are a few permanent residents, but they are good folks who keep things neat/tidy. There is an aggressive dog towards the back of the park if you walk the campground roads, but he is behind a fence. Nothing to worry about but be prepared. He seems to enjoy waiting for you to be right up in the area before barking his head off at you. If you make fun of him, he goes and lays down, but it'll startle you if you're not ready for it. The rate quoted is weekly rate with tax. I enjoy this campground, but this time we had to move early. They don't allow you to wash your rigs here. We'd asked before we arrived and were told we could use a mobile service. We lined that up and were told we couldn't do that either - disappointing. We get this is the man's business to run as he wants, but to pull out two days early in order to get this work done on the rig was a bit of a hassle. He is concerned water will get on the neighboring rigs. Wish his campworkers were clear on their understanding on this. They are pretty much the best thing going in this area, so I'm sure we'll return. We'll just make sure we wash/wax before we get there. The wind does pick up at random times here so watch your awning. We saw someone completely lose their's. This area is beautiful in it's own way. Quite a lot of agriculture going on, so it can be dusty at times. There weren't the flies we encountered here last time either. Check out The Riverboat Restaurant; we had a nice meal there. Portions were ample, and the pricing was good. Urbanspoon has them rated low, but we are foodies and found the meal very acceptable. Make sure you find your way to Buhl and eat at La Plaza. Some of the best homemade Mexican food ever; we always purchase some of her tamales to stock the freezer before leaving. Call ahead and if she's out of product, she'll make them for you. Harley rides are good in this area too. Check out the fossil beds and Oregon trail as you work up an appetite for these two restaurants.
This RV Resort is under construction and about 2/3 complete. The facility was extremely nice and so was the staff. The facility requires a gate code to enter the premises that is unique to each site, as well as use the pool/hot tub area. There's an outside fire pit, basketball court, shuffleboard, ping pong, activities center with kitchen, very nice playground with swing set, horseshoes, pet walk area. Sprinklers do run 2X/day.There are plenty of restrooms for the number of spaces. Everything here is top notch. I do believe we received a discounted rate because of construction during our month's stay. We did not have a meter on site yet either. From what I gather 500 kWh are included in the pricing and after this you are charged, but I am unsure of the rate. In discussion with the management here, they do expect to raise monthly rates when construction is complete. The pricing may vary depending on how much cement you want to pay for where you park. The laundry facilities are also quite nice. $1.50 to wash and same for drying. The spacing between sites is better than most parks in this area. We found two nice places to eat while here: Kneader's and Tamahura in Midway. Wal-Mart is quite close, as is Day's Market and Smith's for groceries. The only reason why we rated this facility a '9' is because of Wi-Fi. It's good but when greater than half full, there's not enough bandwidth. I'm sure they'll correct this in time though as they learn about demand needs. You should be relaxing anyway, right? But for those of us that still work, it's a nice perk when in a facility. We would definitely return.
This RV park is hard to rate. It's the best one in the area, and we would stay here again. It's just a "tired" RV park. The rates are high for an "RV Park" and not resort-like facility. $40/night with the Good Sam discount. The facilities are in very good shape. The spacing is adequate, but a little too chummy for my taste if I were to stay long term. There are BBQ grills at a lot of sites. Some of the sites are concrete pads, but most are gravel. The hookups worked fine, and they have cable. The WIFI was sketchy when we first arrived, and the park was about 25% full. We telecommute and while we don't rely on parks to provide our access, it's nice to use if available. We couldn't work on it until early morning hours or when the place emptied out. There are some long term worker tenants, but they are kept away from the overnight area for the most part. It feels a little odd when you drive into the park, but it's safe. There are picnic tables at every site too. The tent area had electric and water. Other than agriculture, the town seems to rely on it's 'spot in the road' in the middle of practically nowhere to survive. Do frequent their local stores/restaurants, and you'll receive some great service. Don't forget to tip. The scenery here is quite beautiful, and we even saw a bald eagle.
This is an amazing place to stay/camp, so it fills up quickly. The rate is $24/night with a $7/day park access fee bringing the total to $31/night. The view of the Colorado National Monument from our site was spectacular. We were in site 6. There are nice hiking paths along the Colorado river. You can also fist in the stocked lakes. Tenters also use the RV spots so this is why you have to book early if you want to get into the park; they take up RV spots. It is what it is - not complaining. Every spot has a fire pit, and they sell wood for $5/bundle. Every spot has a metal shelter with a picnic table under it, also metal. You can't extend your awning as a result, but this was not an issue for us. The hookups were all in excellent working order. There is no WIFI provided. You are just about 1/2 mile off the interstate, but this was not issue. I'm noise sensitive, and it didn't bother me. The campground was immaculately clean, and the grounds were in beautiful natural shape. They do run sprinklers daily but there are signs advising you of same. We would definitely stay here again planning way in advance because we had to leave sooner than we wanted because it is such a popular place - and for good reason. You are close to many amenities if you decide you don't want to stay in your rig all the time too. But why leave such a beautiful spot?
Rate reflected is monthly Winter rate, and the campground charges $0.14/kWh. This is a great park overall with lots to do for the children or young at heart. All the outbuildings are in top notch shape, as well as the facilities. They have ping pong, foosball, shuffleboard, a pool, gaga ball pit, playground, and lots of room to have fun. The interior roads are gravel (thick in some spots) so the children will have to be pretty good riders to push through at times. There's a good, not heavily traveled, road that is just outside the park for asphalt riding. The WiFi was consistent/included in the price, and the owners/camphosts were really nice people. This is a very hospitable campground. There's a large "bark park" for people with furry children. The spacing between sites is fairly good for this part of the country. Some are closer than others, so look around before selecting your site. I tend to like more room and had no problem on the spacing. We would not hesitate to stay with these folks again. The nightly rate varies based upon day of the week. Weekends can be pricey at $45/night, but they offer good discounts so just ask. Happy trails!
This is our second time at Justin's, and it is just like we remember. The camp hostess continues to be a wonderful person. You have to be self-contained to stay here, and there are many folks who return annually who are quite friendly. This park was built with becoming a park model facility in mind, so the spaces are sizeable. Some of the sewer placements are a bit squirrelly, so be prepared to use two hoses in some places. The cost is all inclusive, and they ask that you do not use electric heaters/dryer. The Wi-Fi could use some work. It's not strong although there are several towers within the park, and sometimes there is no connection to the internet, but you can hit their router. Be prepared to run off a data card if you need reliable signal. This campground butts up against the Sonoran Desert, and you can access it from the campground. Don't miss it! Also, Tiny's Saloon is up the road, and they have the best wings. We talked about them for two years and were glad to see nothing changed with the recipe in this local hangout. You are a little remote at this campground, but I like to still feel like I'm camping even though we live in a 40' toy hauler, so it's worth a little driving for me to get to the grocery store, etc. Our friends stayed at other places locally, and they are packed in like sardines. No, thanks. Casino del Sol is just around the corner too if you're inclinced. As is, Wal-Mart and grocery stores - all within a 15 min drive. There's also a clay shooting range, as well as, pistol shooting ranges close by for your convenience. There's a great church, Holy Cross Church, in town too (Presbyterian PCA). If the weather chases us south again, this park will be at the top of our list!
This park has recently expanded with an eye on quality. I cannot remember the woman's name who checked us into the site just as it was getting dark, but she makes the place with her friendliness! She waited in the golf cart to park us even though it was well past quitting time and dark. Wickenburg is a great little town we explored back in 2011, and we were glad to be back if only for one night. As I said, they've expanded. The sites are all level and just about all are pull-throughs. We paid $38.08 for the night. We've made reservations to return for a longer stay in early 2014. It's beautiful country around this area with lots to do especially if you ride a motorcycle or ATV. Folks who were around us were quite friendly, and we look forward to our return.
If you are not into the Second Amendment, don't come here. If you are, this place is heaven! I'm so glad we stumbled onto this campground because it's been a lot of fun! Pricing is "different." In order to stay, the rate is $395/month, but you have to purchase shooting passes for each person. We chose the pistol/rifle passes for $90/each bringing the grand total to $575/month. After the first month, you pay $600/month. The shooting facilities are second to none, but we also enjoyed NRA's Whittington Center in northern NM. The sites are large in width and depth which is unusual in the Western facilities we've experienced to date. The only screwy thing is they have a new reservation system, so they cannot tell if someone is beside you or not. So, you'll have all these empty spaces and get a neighbor. It's not that we are unsociable, but we do enjoy some sense of privacy if it's available. There are NO facilities because the focus is the gun range, so you have to be self contained. The site is gravel, but not the annoying kind. The gravel's not too big and not too small, so it stays right where it should...outside. Your 'rear end' faces Las Vegas, and as the lights come on at night, you're in for a huge treat especially if you have a toy hauler like us. Wal-Mart, grocery stores and the things a full timer needs are pretty close. Because of the facilities, it's an easy place to exercise too because of the sidewalks and roads. There's no Wi-Fi, but our Verizon cell/data worked great. The power pedestal was ultra modern. The people working here only enhanced the comfortable feeling we had while staying here a few months.
This is a nice campground with lots of shade, which is important if you are here in the summer months. The rate reflected is a weekly rate with tax. We found lots to do in the area, and the 1000 springs drive up/down Hwy 30 is not to be missed. The campground spacing is "normal" with 75' long pull through sites. They are almost level. There are a few permanent folks living here, but the rigs are kept nicely. They do provide Wi-Fi that was nice/strong while we were here. Verizon cell and data are 4G. I still don't understand campgrounds that place you close to other campers when there is lots of space. You can be close to the road, but the road noise has not been bad. I am road noise and odor sensitive - more on that later. It is easy to maneuver in this park too; we are a 39' toy hauler and had no issues. They do run an irrigation system at night, so you do have to put up your toys, but they warn you about it. It's quiet at night here. The only downsides were a very faint cow odor, but hey, you're in the middle of an agriculture belt. But, they do have TONS of flies! I mean TONS! We purchased a fly trap and ran the fan when we were outside. When I mentioned the flies to a local, they said, "yea, they are bad and it's not even October yet!" I don't want to see October! HaHa. This seems to be something normal here. They even sold fly spray in Sun Valley, so even the ultra rich have flies here. Seriously, it's a beautiful part of the country. Don't pass is up...just come prepared.
We booked another RV park down the road and were disappointed with it because it was just a big parking lot with no trees. As luck would have it, we'd passed this place on the way there. It is a lovely find. First, there are trees and grass which is a hard find in this arid high desert country. There are only seven back in sites. There is only one entrance and one exit, so you must be secure in your ability to maneuver your rig. No whining allowed if you don't heed my words! My hubby had no problem getting our 40' toy hauler in place. There's great green space between the spaces unless you are in the first site. It buffers the road which is a main road traveled during the day, but if you're out sightseeing, it quiets down at night. This used to be a mobile home park, and before you stop reading, I was concerned too. But, the owner has good tenants in the remaining four park models still in place. I don't go for sketchy places, and I have no issues staying here for the month. There's not a huge amount of space to walk, but there's tons of trails nearby, and you are only 30 miles south of Jackson. We stayed in the area about three months ago and from what I've seen, this is one of the best places. Again, you must know how to maneuver your rig. It's quiet at night, and you feel like you could reach out and pull the stars right into your pocket. There is no playground, but children could stay here. The price quoted is a monthly rate. Right now, I'm looking out over a beautiful field and to the surrounding mountains under the shade. We would definitely stay here again!
We originally booked to stay one month, but after seeing the RV park, we moved. The RV park is on the river. You do have to check in at the tavern, which is a nice place. The people managing the park could not have been more nice. There are basically no trees so no shade. The entire park is gravel/dirt, so when the wind blows, you are eating dirt. You cannot leave your windows open for the dust and the heat. It is in a great location though, but for me, it's a little too commercial. For example, you are literally a stone's throw from a Family Dollar store. It just wasn't the experience we wanted for such a incredibly beautiful location.
First of all, the comments re: the owner, are not valid. I was very antsy given the previous comments, but found nothing to validate the comments after meeting her and working with her. We thought we'd have more of a river placement, and she was more than willing to make changes. She is a professional business woman, but she is very compassionate. Check-in was efficient. There are rules, but nothing over the top. They are enforced for everyone's safety/enjoyment of the campground. Any infraction will be cause for you to leave without a refund. We looked at other campgrounds, and this seems to be the same everywhere. This statement must be there for a reason because it is visible at other campgrounds. I think they want people to be civil and enforce rules to make sure all are guaranteed a nice stay. This campground is showing its age, but it is functional. The entrance is not too appealing with a "manager's" mobile home as you enter the property with things in storage behind it that need to be behind closed doors. The roads are paved and in good condition. It's easy to manipulate a 40' 5th wheel toy hauler within the CG. Spacing between the sites is good, and there are mature trees on the property providing good shade. They need to pay more attention to the site's themselves because there are weeds growing in the gravel parking and bare spots in the grass, but you are allowed to use a mat, which is unusual in this area. I understand some of the power posts are placed on the opposite side than you expect, so ask at the time of booking to make sure you aren't impacted. There are ticks/mosquitoes in the area, so be prepared. Yes, the campground butts up against the Flathead River, but you can't see it well from many sites. I understand folks book one year in advance to get the sites right on the river, which is beautiful. There is a large common area with trees/picnic tables that you can enjoy + fish. We did not use the dog park, laundry or showers that cost $0.25/use. The rate posted was the monthly rate. We did have to pay an additional $4/day when our daughter visited. And, there is a $15 charge if you bring a pet. Cable is included in the rate as is internet service provided by tengo. It was surprisingly great, and we depend on it a lot because we telecommute from our RV. I was able to shut down my Verizon router and run off the CG's service. (Verizon service is 4G in this location.) Bonus! Saved on my satellite costs + internet while camping here. There is consistent road noise from a heavily traveled road, but not overbearing...just continual. I didn't enjoy this, but most of the CGs here are on main roads. We were in row C, so maybe deeper into the CG, it is not as noticeable. I will say I am road noise sensitive. There is a playground for the children, and they burned up the paved roads on their bikes. We've not been in this area, and there is SO MUCH to do here. We are here for one month, but only have the weekends to really explore because of our work. I don't think one month will do this area justice. It is an amazing place. People are warm and welcoming in this area. We would stay here again. It is ~30 miles from Glacier National Park.
Rate reflected is for a monthly stay. Check-in was very efficient, and they make sure you understand the rules. Very clean and well cared for park. The common building, which contains the bathrooms, is immaculate - better than any other place in our three years of full timing. Impressed. Laundry facilities are well stocked, too. They have a small nice grocery selection, as well as, souvenir options. There is a nightly campfire, and on Sundays, there is an ice cream social if you care to purchase ice cream. It's available all the time and is yummy. You are right on the river in some spots, and we've seen osprey, elk, deer, and numerous birds. You are escorted to your site and assisted with back-in. The Wi-Fi is sufficient, but can bog down with high usage. We depend on it a lot and didn't feel inconvenienced too often. There are underground sprinklers that keep the grass nice and green. They come on at night around the campers, so you might want to watch where you place things. They tell you about them too at check-in, as well as, the need for a pressure regulator. It is needed. The owners and camp workers are super nice, attentive, and can help you find things to do if you run out of sightseeing; which I doubt you'll do. You are rather remote here, but hey, it's Montana. Everything is a drive! The only downside is being right on Hwy 89. I am road sensitive, and it was wearisome at times because I don't like a/c either. But, we would not use this as a reason not to return. I'll take road noise over being stacked on top of someone else any day. Don't forget your rod/reel! Enjoy!
This is a pleasant campground located ~:30min from Jackson, WY going over the Teton Pass. It has easy in/out access with sites for larger rigs. You may not be able to park your toad in the same site, but they seem to put the vehicle in the spot next to your rig. We arrived early in the season, so this may not be the case all the time. Some sites do not have a whole lot of space between them and some do. There are trees between most of the sites, and some RVs may not be able to open their awning. Ask. There is a nice well-kept playground for the children with a basketball court and a real fort! We did not use the facilities here, and the pool was still closed for the season. The rate we posted reflects a monthly rate. The location is beautiful and peaceful. We did notice the road noise picked up as more tourists arrived, but it was not bad. I am noise sensitive and could deal with it. I think. Wi-FI is available, and it's ok. We used our Verizon data card/cell and had no issues. There's 4G in this Valley! We looked at the campgrounds near Jackson and are very pleased with our choice. This campground allowed you to get a better feel for the area, as opposed to, the commercial tourist feel. Victor Valley Market is just down the street for groceries. They are a bit pricey, but what they offer is amazing. Broulim's is in Driggs and is a great grocery store. Food in this area is the highest we've seen in our full time living, but you can't beat the quality. We found fresh organic eggs at Snowdrift Farms. We weren't "over the top" on the restaurants here and were content to cook our own amazing local food. Victor Vet is right up the street, and they took amazing care of our 14 year old pup when she had some issues. V-1 propane is just down the road; we paid $2.50/gal on refill. This is the least amount we've ever paid for propane, so grab some while you're here. We would definitely stay here again.
First, be careful approaching this campground. You'll come across a bridge, and the entrance is just past the bridge with a very small blue camping sign just prior to the turn which is all the city will allow. If you miss it, you can enter in the exit like we did. The CG has lots of shade. We only stayed one night, but I don't think you'll get satellite. They have cable. You are side/side with the pull throughs and close. Your 'front porch' opens to your neighbor's, and you share a common grass area. We only had one picnic table. We may have been in the CG's overnight space and not 'get' our own. The tables throughout the park were in need of a good paint scraping and repainting. If I traveled with little people, I'd definitely cover it with a tablecloth for use. It's been a cooler, wetter Spring, but the grass was a bit out of hand. We didn't use their WI-FI. Verizon worked great. The CG is on a road but the noise was not bad, and I'm sensitive to it. The airport is just across the road, but no bother there either - maybe we got lucky with the wind so the landing runway was not near us. The site was easy to level. I felt safe there. By the way, the lake was not within walking distance that I could see. The utility pole was in great shape. There aren't many good camping choices in SLC. They are right off the interstate. I do think this is the best 'natural' CG in the area and I am glad we stayed there. We'd definite use this CG for an extended stay or just passing through again. Happy Motoring!
This campground is literally someone's backyard, but don't let that throw you. It just means you are turning into someone's backyard, so the entry can throw you. It feels narrow, but you can get in/out without issue. The entire campground base is small stone and there are lots of trees. This also means you'll have to back into your site and thread the trees, but again it is possible. Not all sites are 50/30, and the website highlights this fact. There are a lot of trees, as I stated, and most of the sites are shaded. Their Wi-Fi works well, but depending on where you are in the park, you may not have full bars if you are using Verizon phone/air card. The sites are sufficient in width, but a little closer than we like. Again, we could live with it. I'm not used to having the sewer hook-up feeling so close in the site, but once you're parked, it's farther back than I originally thought. There is no dog walk that I could see, but we were only there for one night. It's a lovely area to visit, and the owners are super! It's an easy walk to restaurants. This is a small town with great people, but there's no Wal-Mart or major stores unless you drive about 20mins. This is also part of the charm staying there. If you get a place that backs up to the stream, you won't be disappointed. It runs fast and loud making for some relaxation and good rest.
It was hard not to rate this park a 10, but nothing in life is perfect, right? The rate is for a monthly stay. $375 + elec which is $.014 kWh + $5 fee to read the meter. It was hot while we were here: 104, so our overall monthly charge was ~$541 while running the a/c + washer/dryer. This is an extremely efficient park from stem to stern. There's no problem navigating a 39' TT into the spots where we would fit. The Wi-Fi works well in the park for the most part. Not all sites got super strong signal, plus there weren't many folks in the CG to pull on the bandwidth. The owners are so gracious. They made sure we had a site where we could hook-up a Quest modem because we are not retired and work from our TT full-time. We have honestly never seen a more clean park. They are constantly raking the pea size gravel, putting down water to keep the dust down, and grooming the trees of which there are PLENTY at Zane Grey. Some sites are on the road. We are road sensitive and don't think it would be too bad to be placed here. It's obvious there is great love and care with this CG. The restrooms were as clean as my own home. The sites are level for the most part. There is a grass area. The folks who stayed along that area needed insect spray if you had the sweet skin they love to eat. They do recycle. There is a path that takes you down to a seasonal creek. We saw deer, a grey fox, lizards, elk close by and we heard there are javelins, but did not see any. The CG neighbors were very friendly and welcoming. There are donuts/coffee each Saturday and corn hold is serious here: holding tournaments during the Winter season. This park is not advertised as a 55+ park but there's not a lot for the little ones to do here other than ride their bike or hit the trail. They do have a hot tub. This CG is about eight miles from town which provides the basics. There aren't a lot of "good" restaurants in town. The closest Wal-Mart is 23 miles away in Cottonwood, whose corporate limits are 15 miles away. This is where we'd go for most of our supplies. We liked it so much we are coming back for the 2012 Winter season.
Very much a Mom/Pop facility but that's part of the charm of this place. She makes the RV park. Very kind and gracious person. Rate reflects monthly stay: no tax, flat rate, water/50 amp included. You have to be self-contained. The sites are fairly level and very large: 2K square feet. Originally designed as a park model lot, the hook-ups can be far out of reach in some places. You have to maneuver your rig or have longer hoses to reach. Your rig sits on pea size gravel, and the rest of the "lot" is larger stone. You'll need an outdoor mat. The majority of the sites do not have a picnic table. There is a trading or borrow library. The park is remote. You will have to drive 8 miles to a decent grocery store on Valencia. This is where you'll find Wal-Mart too. The awesome thing about this park is it adjoins the Tucson Mountain Park. The saguaros are almost right out your backyard, depending on what site you get. There are a ton of trails leading out into the desert. The sites that adjoin the desert and/or golf view go quickly and are normally reserved for returning guests. This is a very easy park to maneuver a big rig. We are a 39' TT and had no difficultly moving around or parking it, as well as, having plenty of room to park the F450. Be sure to go to b'fast/lunch at Todd's at Ryan's airfield. Good food/great prices. Tiny's is a great place too: best wings we've ever had. Ask them to leave them in the fryer a little longer. Burger night is Thursdays. Great staff. If you need a ladies haircut, try the M Salon. It's a little pricey and a drive, but worth every penny: best lady only works Thursday & Saturday. We would definitely stay here again.
First, this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing parks we've stayed in during our first year of living FT in an RV. The owners have taken great care to keep the facility pleasing to the eyes. There is a B&B on property that is equally nice. There is a lovely pool/spa area with citrus trees growing on the property. They aren't treated so you have to get to the fruit before the bugs do. The coyotes were very interesting to listen to at night off in the distance and sometimes close by, but never on the property. Keep your animal on a leash though. We live in a 39' fifth wheel toy hauler and had no problems getting into our site. This is a small intimate park. The park provided Wi-Fi is very poor. You will be able to use your Verizon phone here, but the air card service is very unreliable. We still work full time and had to leave early because of the unreliability of running off a Verizon air card. The site next to us left too because he has a Sprint phone that would drop his calls. It's very unfortunate because I'd love to stay longer. You are out away from civilization, and your cell signal bounces between three towers. The beauty of this place is it is almost like camping again even though you live in an RV. Also, this is not a 55+ park which is nice. (AZ law requires the parks allow 20% of those under 55 into the park, but you have to take their word for it). The sites are large for this part of the country with lots of natural flora/fauna. We were in site 42 which was very nice until they started parking overflow vehicles in the desert behind us. It killed our view. And, the site that filled up in our right back corner was a little too close, but it's better than most parks in the area. The only negative I can say is the campers who have returned for 8+ years started things off on the wrong track for me. They stay on the back row. We have a dog and take proper care of her. But, I was given the "evil eye" when I walked her in the back row area behind the RV and over by the dog walk. Turns out you are judged before they know you are staying in this back area. They've had problems in the past with other campers allowing their pets in the common RV area for the back row folks and not cleaned up after their pet. Thankfully, I was approached, and the person apologized, but it just set a bad tone. This same group holds daily happy hour as well. I think they could have been welcoming, but I'm not sure I want to associate with folks who are so "tight" and react without knowing facts. I truly hope when I hit the 55+ age that I have more on my mind than to worry about stuff like this and talk about other people. The upside is they do keep an eye on what's going on in the park, so nothing gets amiss fast. If you are a big rig, make sure you stay in a premium site. It's a little more costly but well worth it. Overall, I hate to leave this RV park and would love to return when we don't have to work full time anymore. One last word, the folks are so helpful that make the reservations. I couldn't say anything nicer about the people who work for the RV park. Happy trails!
This is really a nice park, the sites are level, easy access to I-70, fuel is across the street, and a restaurant (which is pretty good) is within walking distance. Best of all, they understand customer service! Verizon access is good.
Only 2 sites have 50 amp service ($20), the rest of the park is 30 amp ($15). The sites on the end of the rows do not have sewer hookups. For check-in, you fill out a form and drop a check in a locked mailbox. I had reserved a 50 amp site, but the previous occupant decided to stay over an extra night, so I had to park in another spot, which was not a problem. The owner then told me I would need to move mid-week since somebody had reserved my alternate site. It didn't make much sense to me, but was no issue since I got into the Excel service center (great service!) earlier than expected. The park is well maintained, and was fairly quiet except for some barking dogs across the street. It's OK for an over nighter. Verizon service was good. The park's Wi-Fi was also good.
Rate reflects monthly pricing. This campground needs some attention. It appears to be an old KOA. There is a Wal-Mart very close. The road into the campground is filled with potholes. The check-in was easy, and they were able to work with us as our dates moved on the calendar. The folks managing the place were super nice. They do not have many FHU sites and have only 30 amp available. Most sites do not have shade. The water and electric hook-ups can be on the opposite side of your camper depending on which site you get. The roads are narrow with no enforcement of the one car/site rule. The site spacing is adequate with slides. The outbuildings were in good shape. The fire ring was not cleaned out before we arrived or while we were here. It had trash in it when we arrived. No one shows you to your site or helps you park. A lot of folks had nightly fires, but it was difficult to park your tow vehicle at your site because of the fire ring placement. There are a lot of seasonal campers in the FHU area who take over the place. They don't want to move their cars or change their lifestyle to accommodate you. For example, they were all sitting around the fire ring into the area where you need to park. No one moved even when they saw you pulling up to park. The overall feeling of this campground is it could use a little elbow grease and attention. It wouldn't take much to get the rating higher, but I'm unsure if the owners aren't interested and like it like it is or if they are trying to make a living/stay afloat because they were about half full while we were here. This is the best CG to visit if you have business in the Milwaukee or surrounding area. We would stay here again because of work, but would not look forward to it.
This is a great campground! The only reason why we rated a "9" is because of distance between sites. It is tight between sites, but this appears to be the case with SD campgrounds. The rate paid reflects Good Sam discount. First, the owners are fantastic people. The children provide services like dog walking if you were going to take in a long day of sight-seeing. The owner could tell you where to find the most interesting places to see if you wanted something off the beaten path. The owner will see you to your campsite. There are several sections, and he will take you around to the available campsites to let you choose your site. They were able to move us to a more shady site when we asked. The CG is extremely clean and well cared for with respect to dog walking and trash. We are making our 2nd trip here this Summer. Spearfish Canyon is almost within walking distance. You are very close to Devil's Tower in WY and about one hour's drive to Mt. Rushmore/Crazy Horse. You are about 100 miles from Badlands. There's a Wal-Mart, grocery store and hospital close by if you need it. They will let your packages/mail be shipped to the office too. If you are in the mood for a nice meal, go to the Bum Steer. It is fantastic!
This is a great campground, but the location is the only reason why we rated this as a 9. It is right off the interstate, and if you are sensitive to road noise, you can't block it out inside your rig. It didn't bother my spouse, though. Most of the full hook-up campgrounds in Minnehaha county are right on the interstate. This is a very well maintained campground geared toward families. There is no check-in or check-out during the weekends given the volume of campers they have to support. Water pressure is a little low, but acceptable. WI-FI works great from all over the campground! Mature trees, level sites, and good gravel sites/roads. Dogs are welcome, and people are good about caring for them as they are walked. The staff could not be better - very attentive and personable. Heated pool and hot tub available for your use. If you are traveling with children, this is a great place for them - mini golf, large jumping pillow, and supervised planned activities. We would stay here again.
First, you could not ask to meet nicer people with respect to the owners. The campground is extremely clean, and it is easy to maneuver within the campground. The front of the campground is the older section, and the spots are tight. Not much more room than having the picnic table between you and other RVs. The front section is more like a parking lot with nice trees within it. This is where we were told the "construction" people stay. I take it this is for the folks working on the Interstate, which runs behind the campground. There is a newer section to the campground that has mature trees. The neighborhood surrounding the campground on two sides is "sketchy." There are mobile homes, apartment buildings and businesses around you. I observed some people walking through that did not appear to belong in the campground. As I mentioned, the campground does back up to the Interstate, but also you enter from another main well traveled road. I am sensitive to road noise, so to others, this may not be a bother, but I do think it is higher because of exposure on two sides. But, it appears other campgrounds close to Tower are also on the interstate: KOA & Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp. If you have business in Minnehaha county, the campground selection is slim unfortunately. In spite of the owners, we won't be staying here again.
Very quiet park with 1/3 of the spots occupied by permanent residents but don't let this stop you from staying. Most people stay to themselves, but not unfriendly. Rate based on monthly stay. You must be self-contained; no bathhouse. You may need something to help level you a little, but not much of an issue. Heavily wooded. Could not get satellite signal but we don't care for TV much so not a bother. Good Verizon coverage. Free WI-FI. Park is owned by City of Abbeville. Approach one mile long roadway to site so easy to exercise without being in traffic. Come prepared to eat, drink & dance in these parts! Abbeville has some terrific restaurants - DuPuy's, Cajun Claws and Shuck's in that order. We will definitely return to SW Louisiana and this park.
As noted in previous reviews, this area is still undergoing renovation after Katrina. For some reason, Waveland seems to be lagging behind the nearby towns. The park staff is great; the ranger stopped by on occasion to make sure everything was going well. One evening, severe weather was predicted, the park manager knocked on the door to make sure that we were aware. We were and spent part of that evening in the bath house when the tornado warning was posted. The sites were level, and we had good Verizon and AT&T cell coverage. The railroad crossings near the park are built up, so I recommend taking US-90 West from town, and follow the signs to the Silver Slipper casino, since that crossing is much flatter. Daily rate is based on a monthly stay.
We stayed at this park from late Oct 2010 until mid-March 2011. The park is in terrific shape with lake waterfront sites available. Windy if you stay right on the water. The sites "deeper" in the park were sheltered and less windy. Rate provided is based on monthly stay. Wi-Fi is available at the activity center, and they are working on making it available throughout park. Pool, tennis court, church services, as well as daily planned activities, are also available. We work from our RV, so we could not take advantage of the planned activities, but they looked well thought out for the campers. The church services are provided by a retired, well read Baptist pastor. Beach is within walking distance. Trails are well kept. Cannot say enough about how nice this park is and the people. They do allow you to receive priority mail/UPS/FEDEX packages at the campground: no 1st class mail though. Do hold on to your receipts because the registration office is volunteer run with park management oversight. The volunteers struggled with registration software, and there were some difficulties with payment. We had to show our receipt to help straighten out some of their billing concerns. Everyone was new and had to learn, but there were still some bumps in ability to answer billing questions. Depending on who you asked would leave you with varying degrees of confidence in information provided. Again, just keep your receipt handy, and it will all work itself out re: billing. Extremely clean. No campfires allowed within park. Be sure to visit Wentzell's from 5-7p for their happy hour: half price on a dozen oysters, select beers and some other food! May be a winter thing but a great buy! When we are in the area, we will definitely stay here again!
This is a beautiful park with nice wooded sites. There are several large sites; we were able to park our 39 ft toy hauler with room left for the truck. The guys in the office were very helpful. It is very convenient to everything in Auburn, but still feels like you are in the country. If you are looking for a campground with a lot going on during football season, then go somewhere else. This was relatively quiet even after a big victory. (War Eagle!) We had good Verizon service, and AT&T was adequate.
This park is a gem! There are great views of the mountains, and it is far enough off the beaten path that we didn't hear any road noise. We had a pull-through site that was level. Check-in was a breeze; the owners filled us in on some of the things going on around Luray over the weekend. Had good AT&T and Verizon coverage.
This is a beautiful park, and has the potential to be a great place with a little TLC. For example, the bathrooms were cleaned daily, but the cleaning people never look up. There were spider webs and bugs in the ceiling of an otherwise clean facility. After the a holiday weekend, they didn't empty the dumpsters until Thursday. There are a few pull-through sites that have 50 amp, but the other sites are 30. They do have river front sites, but with the thick undergrowth, you can't see the river from most of the RV sites. There is also a train track next to the campground, and the train blows the horn when it comes through. After a couple of rain showers, the roads were a muddy mess. The spa across the street is nice, and there lots of outdoor activities nearby. It's also close enough to make a day trip to Asheville or Pigeon Forge. Verizon cell phone coverage was ok, but the aircard was almost unusable because it was so slow. There was no AT&T coverage available.
The campground and restrooms are very clean and our site was level. Their level of customer service was outstanding. They go the extra mile to make sure that your stay is enjoyable, whether it's delivering firewood to your site, or just checking in to make sure that everything is OK. Would definitely stay here again.
As one of the previous reviewers said, the main part of the campground is just a field. The campsites that back up to the main road have more privacy. Our campsite was fairly level. We really enjoyed the trails and the pier. We saw lots of wildlife, including a baby fox. The park is on a major bird migration path - we can't wait to go back when the birds are passing through. Camp hosts and park rangers were very friendly.
The park staff was friendly and helpful. We had a large wooded site next to the lake. The nature center is just across the lake, and is an added bonus. Can't wait to go back with the bicycles in the spring.
