We'd never stayed here before but will again! We live in Salt Lake and transit from there to points south. We've stayed elsewhere but never stopped in Fillmore. We were most pleasantly surprised. The Fillmore KOA is just the right distance from I-15, surrounded by rural countryside and views of the mountains. The park is laid out beautifully; the owners obviously care about it and want to please their customers. We arrived early and had a chance to see them guide each new arrival to their site and make sure it was suitable. We were far away from the office, but the Wi-Fi was "4 bars". The showers were clean with adequate hooks and lots of shelf space in the showers themselves. We camped here late in the fall. It was blissfully quiet. Duane's Market is close-by and well stocked. Our site did not have its own fire ring, but we were able to use one on a neighboring, unoccupied side. The gentleman owner is knowledgeable and was able to give me some sound advice on winterizing our rig. The small on-site store is well stocked for its size. Overall rating for us: two thumbs up. If you prefer big-rig RV resorts with paved roads, you may not agree, but it suits us just fine. We'll be back.
This is a little jewel of a place if you want out-of-the-way, quiet and unspoiled. The owners are retired and live here year-round. They were most attentive and helpful. The Salmon River is 100' off with unblocked views from most sites. One of the two shower stalls in the men's room was quite large with plenty of hooks which is a welcome change from the tiny enclosures typical at many campgrounds. We saw mule deer, woodpeckers and red wing blackbirds. We would stay there again, especially after looking at a couple of the other campgrounds in Salmon. Warning: The location of the Heald's is incorrect on the AllStays App which shows it in the town of Salmon. Heald's Haven is about 10 miles south of Salmon on Highway 93.
A small campground run by a very energetic and friendly lady. The sites are grassy and well tended with shade trees. Although it is close to the highway, noise was not a problem. The free breakfast was great. Too much for us, but our beagle loved our leftovers.
Camping here is a unique and memorable experience. Amenities are few, but it is what it is. We took the circle tour first thing in the morning and had the park to ourselves. The displays in the visitors center are excellent and the personnel are gracious. We recommend going to the ranger-led evening program. We have a much better idea now why Idaho looks the way it does. If you're looking for swimming pools, swing sets and cable TV this is not for you.
Wonderful place. Dedicated government employees and volunteers. Spectacular scenery. You'll want to second-guess a decision to go electric. The hookup sites are crowded. If you're like us, you'll be much happier dry camping, away from others. Make your reservations early. This is an Eden that too many have discovered already.
We were there off-season, so our experience may not be typical. That said, we were pleased. Management was there to help us and concerned that we were satisfied. They came by a couple of times to check on our welfare. The campground was beautifully maintained, and the bathrooms were spotless. An ACE Hardware is an easy walk from here. They've got most everything, so if you need a quick fix or a patch, this general-purpose outpost will be helpful. We'll be back, Beaver KOA. You're what we need and where we need to be on our trips South.
We stayed here one night because we arrived too late to get a walk-on site in a nearby State Park CG (most Utah State Park CG's are nearly empty in mid-October, but the Moab-Arches-Canyonlands area is still in high season). Our Archview experience was a series of bad occurrences from the get-go: we called ahead but no one answered the phone; when we got there the office was in chaos; we were assigned a place which turned out to be tiny; our picnic table was practically on top of the neighboring site's black water hose; we had no view of anything; the bathroom facilities were older than most, marginally clean, and there weren't enough private shower stalls; at 10:00 PM 6 or 8 testosterone-powered pickups towing trailers with ATV's rolled in; their occupants proceeded to talk loudly and party until well after midnight. That wasn't all ... We got up at dawn to get in line for a walk-on site at the state park. My wife tripped over an exposed, upright, unprotected PVC pipe, fell and landed hard in the dirt on her face and entire left side, getting a black eye and a badly bruised hand. Now, a week later she's still got a Technicolor face; we had to have her wedding ring cut off. If we were litigious people I think we'd probably have a winnable case against the management for negligence. Campgrounds in this area have tourists at their mercy. The management at Archview could have done many things to make our stay a safer and more enjoyable one, but why should they? They've still got plenty of business even though they disappoint regularly. Overall, this was the worst experience we've had at any campground, public or private.
This little jewel of a campground is located halfway between Yellowstone and Salt Lake City, perfect for those who want to make this a two-day trip. It is small, private and well maintained. The owner was there to greet us. Not only was he careful to give us a site that suited our preferences, he walked us there, helped us park, offered to carry our firewood, and wiped off our picnic table. Tell me the last time you got that kind of personal attention! The facilities are clearly a labor of love; the bathrooms were the cleanest and best appointed we've seen. The playground (a work in progress) had lots of features that will delight the kids. As we settled in by the stream, a trout surfaced from under the willows, grabbed an insect, and darted back. Recommended.
In this extremely popular area there's little competition; business will come your way regardless. That said, this is a lovely spot if you get one of the waterfront sites. Still, we were packed in like sardines even though it was off-season, September 19th. The restrooms were clean, the showers well designed, and the Wi-Fi connection was four bars. It wasn't particularly pet friendly nor could I see any amenities for children except for a single swing set. OK but hardly raves. You might consider dry camping at at one of the many beautiful public CG's nearby. It's a matter not of cost but aesthetics.
We were very happy with our accommodations and facilities. The personnel were VERY pleasant and helpful. The Wi-Fi worked well even at the margins of the park. The showers and bathroom were immaculate and very well designed. The showers particularly had big stalls, a comfortable seat and plenty of hooks, features not always present in the very fanciest resorts. We camped in mid-September and were able to set up at least 100' away from other rigs. There were just the two of us but families with kids will appreciate the playground equipment and amenities. Lastly, there are a huge number of things to do: a hot springs and casino next door and Anaconda and Butte within easy driving distance. Thank you Manager and staff. Recommended! P.S. We didn't give demerits for gravel, although a concrete pad would have been nice.
