We made arrangements to spend the night but were unable to keep our reservation. Although we did not stay here I wanted to comment that the reservation system on line is easy to use. They do not require a CC in advance and respond quickly with an email confirmation. The owner told me that they just bought this RV park in Spring of 2011 and are working on improving it. The web site is top notch and the owner's email responses to me were prompt and very professional. I understand that the bathrooms and laundry have been upgraded. So sorry that we will not be able to experience this but are looking forward to when we can.
Stayed here one night passing through. Very quiet. Very nice. CG Host was very informative and observed him guiding a large Class A to their site at night which I thought was very helpful. Gave an 8 rating due to several things. The hook ups (water and electricity) are at the back of each site, requiring extension hoses and cords. Although they accept dogs, there is not a designated dog walk area, so walking your dog required walking them on actual site lawns which I don't like doing (goes against respecting other's sites) even though we do pick up after them. Sites are big rig friendly but had the park been full, we may have had to back up to get out as opposed to driving through the site in front of us when exiting. At a turn near one of the exits is a telephone pole, which can back maneuvering difficult but we had no problem. Not sure why the pole is there as it's not an active power or phone pole. Winery across the street is a beautiful view. Wines are outstanding: bought several while here. No central restroom or laundry, but very quiet park with a beautiful view of the winery on one side and golf course on the other. Shaded with huge trees that are not a problem when coming in or out with your rig. Would stay here again. For our age, the state park just down the road is the same price as this RV park, but this place is quiet, more for adults, and all sites are pull through. Have stayed at the state park several times and there are only 2 pull through sites there that I remember.
Rate listed was off season in October with a Good Sam card. Excellent staff, super friendly and nice, very helpful and quick check in. Site assigned was for Premium, long pull through, full hookups and Wi-Fi. First time staying here, not really into resort style RV campgrounds but this one is really nice and centrally located. Stayed here because most of the CG's in the area are closed this time of year so our selection was limited. Free coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and cappuccino is available everyday between 8am and 11am. Each premium site has a concrete patio with picnic table but no grills or fire rings due to fire ordinance for the city of West Yellowstone. Would stay here again off season as any other time would be a little spend y for us.
We stated here in early October for 7 nights - pay for 6 and get the 7th free. Beautiful views all around. Excellent staff, super clean restrooms and very nice laundry facilities. An ironing board and iron are available for use too. Excellent location for sightseeing SW Montana. Located on a bluff overlooking the beautiful Madison Valley. Every night deer can be seen in the valley below. No cable TV or antenna but WI-FI is included free and it's strong and fast. We were able to download and watch Netflix movies throughout our stay. Only complaint I have is that this is a windy location and can get pretty gusty at times. Other times, no wind occurred at all. Would definitely come back here again.
Great campground to stay at while visiting the Petrified Forest National Park. Campground is easy in and easy out. All sites are pull through with ample room to maneuver in and out. No shade trees as of yet as the trees are young. The hookups are all located closely to make hookup easy. This is an all dirt and gravel RV park but the gravel is enough so that when it rains it's not muddy and it did rain while we were here. The power is good, no surges of any kind. Would stay here again.
Excellent RV park - easy access from the interstate and easy in and easy out. Security gate makes one feel safe especially so close to the interstate. Sites are wide and level. Each site was clean and neat with all hookups within easy access making hookup easy too. There are two big dog fenced in dog walk areas with shovels and trash can provided for clean up. The only reason I rated this a 9 instead of a 10 was due to the number of goat head stickers in each dog enclosure and I had to remove one from my dog's paw. Great service, great information given and coupons are handed out for Meteor Crater too. Coffee is free here too. All we had to do the next morning after spending the night was to go up to the office with our own mug and pour it. In addition, the check out time is 1pm which allowed us to tour the crater, return, hookup, and leave. Great place. Would stay here again even just passing through which is what a lot of others did.
Excellent KOA campground in a beautiful location. We originally requested a pull through site but upon arrival requested a change to a back-in, river front site and were able to change with no problem or increase in price. Personnel are very nice and informative. They are very pet friendly. You can have your pet off a leash as long as you have it under control. Would stay here again.
Opted to stay at this KOA based on all the positive reviews and glad that we did. The park was easy in and easy out with the pull through we requested being long and wide enough and level. Each site had a concrete pad. The only reason I gave it an 8 was because the entry road was a little strange in that you were directed to drive past a maintenance yard which did not have great appeal. Coyotes visit this park at night so you should keep a clean site and keep your pets in if you don't already.
Selected this RV park based on reviews here and proximity to the Royal Gorge. RV park site stated level sites but they were far from level. Since we were here off-season we requested a premium site based on the rate of $28 (site said $23 but that was incorrect when I asked). I didn't see any difference between the regular and premium sites other than the premium sites were at the end of each row thus affording a view of the canyon, hills and the Royal Gorge. The owner was very strict but we didn't have any problems. Would stay here again.
We selected this KOA to be close to family instead of the higher rated Bernalillo KOA. We were only able to get a water and electric site due to arriving during the New Mexico State Fair week but the site we were assigned was great. It was just a little too short but each site was paved with gravel beds between, with each site having its own table and grill. Nice shrubs and trees between sites. Service was great. Price was great. Power was good. The main laundry room at the main office had no tables for folding or rolling baskets for transferring clothes between washers and dryers. Wi-Fi was good and antenna TV reception was good. There are two enclosed dog runs: one in the back which is just dirt and one in the front which is grass and shaded. Our dogs loved meeting other dogs. Only two things we didn't like about this KOA: it's not well marked till you are one block away. We almost felt like we made the wrong turn. The other problem was the highway noise.
Beautiful forest service type campground but will full hookups and tighter spots. We have stayed here three times and are always a little leery of being assigned a tight spot as this can happen. Sometimes we've been able to request a spot and sometimes not depending on other reservations. Staff is very helpful when escorting you to your site and even want to help you back-in but they are not always knowledgeable in this area. That's ok because we appreciate their help and just park it in our own manner after they leave. They have a dump station or what they call a dump station but the collar is so high that it make dumping almost impossible to keep from making a mess. If at all possible, when you are assigned a water and electric site, dump your tank elsewhere. Within easy driving distance of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Would stay here again.
After much debate after reading the negative comments on this RV Park, I called them to explain my concern over the the negative reviews yet also seeing they were rated on the good/high side by Trailer Life Directory. The attendant, explained that they get just as many good reviews as poor. Based on her attention to my concerns and that she offered us one of her best sites, I made a reservation. When we arrived, she was very accommodating, escorting us to our site even offering to let us take any other we would like if we did not like the one assigned. All the personnel were very friendly, the sites were clean and adequate, the views beautiful in this area. We do not have satellite TV but were able to get 3 or 4 channels with our antenna. The WiFi was slow and did not display all images on certain sites. They charge extra for additional pets, we have three dogs and charged an extra $2 for our three dogs. The pet area was good, it was a field on the outside of the park through a row of willow trees where we were able to let our dogs run of their leashes. The only thing that would make this RV Park as nice as others would be to pave the interior roads and put gravel on the parking spurs. The parking spurs were dirt and if it had been raining it would've been muddy, but the grass area came right up to the outside of each RV so you wouldn't have to walk in mud, if that were the case. Each site also had lodge type posts outlining it so in some cases you had to park to avoid these and still be able to open your slideout. I would stay here again. It was in a good location with beautiful views all around. The drive into Jackson and the Tetons was not bad. When I asked the staff about local activities, they went out of their way to get me the information and even provide coupons. Each night we were there (we were there for 4 nights), the park was full and there were a lot of big fifth wheels and big rig motorhomes.
We camped here over the Memorial Day weekend by booking beforehand on site. The site was exactly as the on site information including the map indicated. We had to book a companion site which was a double site for two RVs. The site was wide but due to its length would realistically only work for two smaller RVs such as our 32' unit plus a smaller TT or a Pop-up. Other companion sites accommodated two large RVs well including one companion pull through on the park. The park had many companion sites but equally as many single sites with ample room between units. We stayed in the lower campground which was nicer than the upper unit, but this depends on one's preferences. Both had nice well watered, well kept lawns. The upper unit was more spread out, lots of trees but less than the lower unit. The lower unit, was more wooded and had a remote feel whereas the upper unit had more of an RV Park feel. But as stated, both are very nice and you can rely on the Idaho State Park web reservation site to be accurate in parking spur dimensions and locations on the map. Great place to visit and would go back again. Since this is by the river, there are a lot of trails and blooming trees which can cause problems with allergies.
This post is to update an earlier review on Sligar's Thousand Springs Resort for a September 7, 8, and 9, 2005 visit that was actually for Miracle Hot Springs. My husband and I stayed at Sligar's but we drove to Miracle Hot Springs to check it out. As stated earlier it is a beautful little campground, with about 10 or less sites. Small campground that we would not take our 32' TT into as the turns were tight just in our pickup. Sites looked like they'd fit up to 25' units. There is electricity. A creek runs through it along with a pond tht the first review claimed had alligators. The sign on the highway shows an alligator on it so she was probably right but in March they weren't there but it was still cold. This place was full of day users for the hot springs. Close to the highway but with all the trees you didn't feel like you were that close.
We visited this RV Park based on a previously posted review, but that review was actually for Miracle Hot Springs, 3 miles South of Sligar's on Hwy 30 South of Hagerman. Sligar's is renowned for its hot springs indoor pool. The RV sites are all pull throughs and there's about 12 of them with some smaller backins. The remaining sites are for tents popup campers or pickup campers. All sites are waterfront. Sites are all gravel and fairly level. As you drive in, the sites face the Snake River and Thousand Springs. Beautiful. The back of your unit faces the Hwy. Some traffic but not bad. The other side of the Hwy is a bluff. We didn't know it till this camping weekend but this area is knows for it's high winds. The first night we had 40+ mph winds, scary. Electricity went out but the tenters down by the water stayed put and all was well. This is not the prettiest RV park I've been to but it was neat and the view out the front was nice. There's about two mobile homes on each end of the pull through sites for local residents for summer homes. While we were there the pool was busy all weekend. There's a nice picnic area on the other side of the pool house which is opposite where the RV sites are at. Dogs are allowed but you are charged $1 per night per dog and have to follow a strict code or as indicated the sheriff will be called. Even though we were disappointed because of the earlier review was for a different hot springs, we'd go back if we were in this area.
