Good, level gravel sites with enough separation not to feel jammed. The really nice sites, right at the river are the back-ins which we would choose over the pull-thrus which are grouped together is a staggered jumble. It's about 40 miles from Yellowstone North entrance which makes it a little bit of a trek but the drive is beautiful which helps. The showers are very clean. Not much to do in the area. If you're in to fine dining make sure to visit Chicos Lodge, about 15 minutes away. We went for massages at the spa one day and returned a couple of days later for a wonderful meal.

A nice, clean park with wide, level sites separated by a grass lawn. As close to Yellowstone's West entrance as you can get and not be actually in the National Park. The bathroom/shower satellite buildings were clean and nice but with only one toilet and two showers (on the men side) seemed insufficient for the number of sites for which it was intended to support. More than once, I had to walk to another because the one nearest our site was occupied. We would stay again if in the area.

This is a campground which, unlike their name and website infers, is not on the side of Utah lake. Close (10 minute walk) but not on. The trees and flora are amazing (limits satellite reception for most) and for an older place, it could be charming. What really spoils this campground are the permanent residences in dilapidated trailers with personal possessions arrayed outside for all others to enjoy. They seemed have been placed together giving that section kind of a "skid row" feeling. Sorry to say, we probably will not return.

If you are a family with young kids, you will undoubtedly love it. With tons of activities (over-priced as they are) your kids will beg you to come back. The RV sites, however, are without a doubt the worst (if there was an award for this kind of thing, for sure they would win). Stuck off to the side, these have got to be the most unlevel, rocky sites known to mankind. The guy across from us had to raise his wheels on blocks a good eight to ten inches off the ground. Not sure that was enough, but he ran out of blocks. Trash was trapped in the surrounding bushes and remained there for the two weeks we stayed here. Now, I get rustic, but to charge this much, for this kind of site with no pad, no cable TV, no WiFi (only at office), is bad. Bathroom and showers are nice.

The main building is quite impressive and the pool area is probably the nicest I've seen so far. The RV sites are a bit tired looking. Same with the bathroom/shower satellite buildings. I checked that the showers weren't clean but that's because, unless you are the first one to use them after cleaning, the next person in tracks in the dirt from the outside. The ventilation is poor so the dampness in the room after a hot shower turns the tracked in dirt to mud. After a days use, it can get pretty bad. That said, it is nice that each bath/shower room is private so you have it all to yourself. Overall not a bad place to stay. It just needs to be refurbished a bit.

This park is fine for a stop over. All gravel sites, large and easy to pull-through. Nothing here or in the nearby area to stay longer.

This is a very well maintained RV resort with nice, level cement pads. The private bathrooms/showers are cleaned after every use, and, although there were only 6 of them, for the 6 days we stayed, we never had to wait. Fairly convenient to Sedona and Jerome (half hour drive). We would stay here again if in the area.

From a strictly specifications standpoint, this place has all the stuff - huge sites (100'x50'), gorgeous main building with pool, spa and activities center, golf, tennis, lawn bowling, pickle ball, etc., etc., etc. Satellite buildings for bathrooms, showers, laundry, pool and spa can be a trek but are nice and clean. The biggest drawback is the aesthetics of the RV sites. All pink gravel with a cement pad and one palm tree separating each site. The utilities are so far back, we need extensions for everything (because they're designed for park models). With the size of this community, the view is of a sea of gravel, cement, and pavement. Just looking at it makes you thirsty. The park model homes have taken all the good sites around the golf course and lakes, and their exterior design is tired and a little depressing (like, "Hope I don't end up like this.")

As close to perfection as we've seen, heard of, or visited. Large, wide, cement sites and patios, beautifully landscaped, golf, tennis, loads of activities, satellite buildings conveniently located with pool, spa, bathrooms, showers, laundry and a tennis court in each, besides the two main club houses centrally located which contain a large pool,spa, bathrooms, showers, several tennis courts, a restaurant in one an expresso and juice bar in the other. The only thing that keeps it from a 10 rating is the inadequate laundry facilities (no matter where you go, main facility or satellite, they are always full). The book library is also rather small for a resort this size (1800 sites). We plan to return many times. The only other problem is that all the sites are owner occupied and therefore we cannot be guaranteed a particular site but must wait until October when the rental contracts are issued.

As far as the sites go, they are relatively large with grass lawns, level, paved and long enough for our 40' 5th wheel and truck (this is important to us because we like to hook up the day before to make pulling out that much easier). The showers, although very clean, have one very (and I mean VERY) annoying feature: one has to continually push a button every 15 or 20 seconds for the water to remain on. The casino hotel guests do not have to push a button so why are the RV park guests required to do so? Water conservation, their excuse for the button, should apply to everyone if it is legitimate. There is a tram that will pick you up at your site which is nice, but the casino is so smoked filled we could not remain in the building and walked out the revolving door as quickly as we entered. Their "Non-smoking" restaurants are all open air with tables and chairs basically in the lobby and therefore, are as smoke filled as the rest of the place. So we couldn't gamble (probably a good thing) and we couldn't eat (based upon everything else, probably a good thing too).

As full-timers, we look for places to stay like this: large, aesthetically pleasing, level paved sites (not all are paved), with easy access, clean bathrooms and things to do in the vicinity. In addition, this resort has a nice pool, spa and workout room which help it to earn an 7 out of 10 rating. To achieve perfection, to us, it would need a golf course or tennis courts, a more complete main building, private showers with bathrooms, a legitimate book exchange library, guest activities, a restaurant and cement patios with lush landscaping. We haven't found perfection yet. We're still looking.
