Nice park near the South access to Henry's Lake. Most sites are back to back with your neighbor so that you have a larger front yard area that has trees and grass. Helpful staff leads you to your site and provides area information. Located in secluded area 5 miles from highway, surrounded by great views.

This is THE park to stay at if you are going to ride the Paiute Trail or even if you are just overnighting! Very big rig friendly with easy access. All pull through sites arranged so that your rig provides afternoon shade. Access to the Paiute Trail from the park for ATV/UTV riding. Respectful riders -if you're not into ATV's- it's not bothersome. Owners are very friendly and helpful. They continue to make park improvements. We continue to return to this park because it's a great place to stay!

Great park to overnight in the Pocatello area. Fairly new park with all pull through sites. Not busy on a weekdays making entrance/exit easy. Cross pathways to the sites are at a 90 degree angle, so if the park was crowded your back wheels may need to travel over the grass. On I-86 take exit 58. If westbound, take a right at exit stop,300 yards to T intersection and right again. Well signed. Near industrial area but also overlooking Portneuf River and Batise Springs.

Rate shown based on weekly rate. This park is wonderful and we will return! The owners are very helpful and put time and energy in to make this park great! It is right near some of the best OHV riding on the Paiute trail, but don't worry if you're not into ATV'0. The riders are respectful in the park, speed limit is 5 MPH and the park is quiet. Shade trees are young and growing but the layout of the park allows afternoon shade from your awning. Long and level pull through sites. Wi-Fi works well, as do the utilities.

A dry camping experience with awesome views of Arches National Park! Campground is 18 miles from entrance station, with a steep climb with switchbacks at the beginning. All sites are on the reservation system and reservations are needed! There are a few sites suitable for big rigs. Nightly ranger programs at amphitheater and several trails are within walking distance of campground. The pull through sites are sites that are wide areas in the campground road.

Register for space at the Shell station. Shell station has big rig access for diesel. Camp is basic, no frills. Sites have shade trees along side and are very wide, gravel. Plenty of room to maneuver. Good water pressure and reliable electric. I would stay here again.

We were not able to stay at this park due to being full. I did not change the rating to "NO" on Big Rig accessible, but please note there is a large Cottonwood Tree on the loop turn that is low hanging. It took out a skylight on our 5er which is 12'9" tall. You can swing way wide to avoid it as long as the road is dry. There are only a few spots to accommodate a long rig. The "pull-through" spots are wide spots in the road, without a picnic table or easy access to "yard".

Perhaps I would be able to rate the park better if a few key factors were improved. When we checked in we were told to pick any site we wanted without a tag, that there were plenty open (mid-week). This would have been great except the camp hosts had not pulled the old tags by 4:30PM so it was very difficult to see what was available. Also in order to get into sites on the left side of the loop, you have to go in from the left, but the site posts are in the center lane. There are very few water access points and a fellow camper had it hooked up directly to his trailer. Again the camp hosts drove by and said nothing. Fireworks were being shot off after quiet hours in late July. On the positive side, the office attendant easily refunded our site fee after we decided to only stay one night. Be sure to follow brown state park signs to entrance: US 34 West to Madison street. This is primarily used by boaters. Sites are close together, the crescent pull-through sites are awkward and little shade at many sites. Probably would be fine if you knew which site to choose. Used the swim beach and it was clean.

This park is a gem in the Raton area, off highway 64 about 6 miles from town. Spaces are well separated and although gravel, are fairly level. Area has Pinon Pine and Juniper for a bit of shade. Site had 30 Amp and excellent water pressure. There is a well maintained dirt road from the entrance station to the campground, but well worth the drive! This feels like a state park! We would definitely return to this park.

Owners are very friendly and helpful! They have two clean swimming pools and a petting farm for kids with daily bottle feedings. When this park is full, there is very little room between sites (only the width of a picnic table). Wi-fi was not working and advertised cable only had local affiliates (about 5 channels). Reliable electric service, but water pressure very low. Convenient to Spearfish Canyon and historic downtown. Easy access to I-90. Cash or checks only. Good Sam rate shown. Open sites or shaded with nice large trees.

The Game Lodge Campground at Custer State Park is a gem. It is centrally located. Buffalo can usually be seen right from the campground. There are shady sites near the stream and more open sites on the 'top' of the loop. Paved trail from Game Lodge to Grace Coolidge campground for biking or hiking along the stream. Peter Norbeck visitor center is nearby. For 2011, there is a new dump station near this campground on the Wildlife Loop road (also a station at the campground). Pond at campground for kids to play in as well as a playground. Laundry facilities- cold water only. Factor in a reservation fee for non-resident of about $8 and park entrance fee of $15 for a week. We would definitely stay again.

There are many activities available at this park including a small wildlife zoo, petting zoo, storybook land, playgrounds, mini golf, go carts, a lake for swimming/fishing, bike/walking trails. The sites in the original area have narrow roadways, often with cars protruding into the space available. Sites in "new" section seem to be built for bigger rigs...but since it is new, the sites are still growing their grass. Aberdeen sprays for Mosquitoes, which helps to keep it more comfortable. Laundry is a bit pricey- $2/wash & $1.25 for 25 minutes of dryer time. Reservations suggested as this seems to be a destination for many South Dakota residents.

This is a very nice campground with 50 amp service. They are remodeling the bathrooms this summer. There are no showers available. The campground is very convenient to the visitors center, where you catch the shuttle up the canyon or into town, so no need to drive once you're parked. We stayed in a pull through site B22 that had a nice view from the front porch. Do not leave any food outside and make sure your coolers are secured. The squirrels WILL get into it & your tent! Be sure to fill with water prior to parking. Dump station is to the left of check-in booth and is a two way station.

This is a very nice USFS campground. It is about 9000 feet elevation, so is cooler than the valley below in Torrey and near Capitol Reef National Park. There is a dump station at the top of the loop. It is a single loop with back-in sites on either side. Sites are large enough for big rigs. Many water spigots throughout campground. There is a hike to a nearby waterfall. We would return to this park.

We stayed in the Elk Ridge section of the Dutch Charlie area. This state park is big, so the different campground areas are quite a ways from each other. The Elk Ridge area is shaded by Pinyon and Junipers and is the most shaded campground. State park has many nicely developed trails with good marking. Very scenic location. Electric at sites with shared water. Bring lots of hose. There is a dump station at the Dutch Charlie section to the right after the check-in station. Camp hosts were wonderful! We would definitely stay again. If reserving, pay attention to the side of the road your site is on. It is a one-way road, so you may be "backwards" in your site.

The Fruita section has many pull-through sites that easily fit a big rig. The turn into the campground is the First Right that you come to as you join the road from the check-in booth (we saw many miss the turn). There is a fair sized parking area to turn around in if you miss the turn. Sites on the west side face the pond and have a nice view, but you do get the brunt of the afternoon sun. Sites are paved with a gravel tent pad. Picnic table has a covered area. Swim beach is closed due to bacteria. Nice playgrounds.

Great option for the greater San Diego area. Easy access to freeways and within 30 minutes to major attractions. Park has many different sections with different sized sites and options. We stayed in a deluxe pull through site that was crushed rock. Messy during the rain! Some sites are paved in this park, but many are not. Deluxe sites are VERY wide giving you a nice amount of elbow room. Wi-Fi is free but comes and goes. East Willow loop has a state park feel. Deluxe back-ins look easy to get into also. Lots of amenities!

Borrego Palm Canyon has lots of pull through, full hook-up sites that are plenty long for big rigs and the roads are also suitable for big rigs. Our electrical management system shut us down momentarily several times for low voltage. Ideal location: 1/2 mile trail to the Visitor's Center and other trails, leave from campground. Plenty of space between sites, including a fire pit and picnic table. Sites are paved.

We used the self check-in because the office was closed. Several pull through sites are available for overnight guests. Park is geared towards an "older" crowd. Nice wide streets. Sites are easy in - easy out. Crushed granite sites with palm trees near streets and concrete patio. Long enough to leave the truck hooked up to a 5th wheel.

Be aware that you need to purchase a daily or yearly state parks pass for your vehicle, in addition to the camp fees. Reservations are necessary. Wi-Fi is advertised but is NOT working. Office staff appeared as if that is the norm and not the exception. Sites are big and the campground roads are wide so back-in sites are not tight to get into. Has plenty of open space. Pay attention to the sewer hook-up. It is in the back of the site. There is some highway noise. The swim beach water is nice and the bike trails are mostly paved. Only one playground by the beach. A good base camp to explore Denver.

This park is not a "10" as others have stated. The sites need lots of leveling, picnic tables need some TLC and the office staff needs to work on customer relations. When park is full (which it was for one night), trailers are packed in like sardines with a shared water connection in the pull-through sites so you look at your neighbor's front door. After the initial blunt welcome as an office worker wondered, "Whose dogs are those?!" When my husband walked them for a break, he did then take the time to find us a better site. We were then given a lecture about dogs. Pool was clean and the laundry was too. If it wasn't for a family reunion that took over the park, it would have been better.

This is a great state park! Has lush green grassy areas which are mowed regularly with lots of trees for shade. Campground has all back-in sites that are angled along both sides of the one-way road. Accessible for big rigs. Sites on "top" of loop have better chance of cell reception, but it is a weak signal. Lots to do for families: bike/hike trails, tennis courts, several playgrounds, activity center with archery and crafts, swimming pool, trail rides. We would definitely stay again! There is lots of water access but not at site, so bring your long hose or stop near a pump to fill your tank.

The city of Baudette recently added RV sites to this community park. The restrooms and showers are spotless. There is a ball field, sand volleyball court, playground, boat launch to the Rainy River, and fish cleaning house. There is a dump station. There are 2 pull-through sites and the rest are back in. Interior road and sites are sand. Weekly rate is $100.

This park sits right next to the scenic byway 12, so there is some road noise. This park is NOT very big rig friendly! The loops in the road are tight and they are lined with sharp boulders. We tore up a tire, saw a motorhome bounce over a rock, and later talked to a volunteer at the forest service visitor center who had also torn up a tire in this campground. If you are in a smaller rig, the sites have beautiful views and there are trails right from the campground. A paved bike trail is adjacent to campground and highway 12.

There are plenty of sites for a big rig. There are both shaded and open sites along the Madison River. There are several natural artesian wells at the campground that you can use instead of the water spigots. Dump station in town at Grizzly RV is $6.

Sites are large and in the grass. This appears to be a popular area with locals, so the weekends may be busy. Mid-week it was fine. There are some seasonal units that are kept up nicely. Swimming is available at the dam. There is a playground in the woods and a baseball field. There were lots of mosquitoes.

Great family campground! KOA staff very helpful and friendly. Escort to site. An old firetruck gives the kids rides around the campground in the evenings. Cafe serves breakfast and dinner. Pool was clean but chilly! Campground has maintained Pinon Pines around the park. We would stay here again!

Northeastern Colorado does not have many campgrounds. This is good for an overnight stay and is free the first night. Great water pressure. A few sites looked like they were staying long term. Next to the city park so teenagers were hanging out with loud music until dusk but quiet at night. Not a destination camp but good for overnight.

This campground was recently changed to a reservable sites. Lots of open space between sites. There are no signs in the campground indicating where the sites are. So we drove in and had to walk around to find our site. Then we had to turn the rig around to head in the correct direction. We were in site 5E. With a 35' 5th wheel, maneuvering was tight. The sights at the bottom by the restroom are more open for big rigs. The water spigot nearby didn't work so water had to be accessed from restroom area. Very family friendly campground.

This is a great Minnesota State Park campground. It is two miles from I-29 in North Dakota, located just off highway 2. They are currently adding more sites. This is a little known gem. Camp site pricing does not include the $5 per day vehicle charge. There is a public playground and public pool nearby. Great bike trail system. We've stayed here twice and will return.

Be careful entering campground from the Cortez side because the entrance is at the bottom of a hill. There are limited sites to hold a larger unit. We camped in a 35' 5th wheel. Blocks will be needed to level. Trails connect at campground for hiking. Nice picnic table and gravel areas.

This is a superb city-run campground. There is now "free" limited wi-fi available in the campground for two hours per day offered by the town of Aberdeen. There are paved bike trails, a free storybook land, play equipment galore, a "zoo" of buffalo,elk, etc. The park roads are narrow but passable. There is both a shady side of the campground and sunny side. We will definitely return.

This is a nice facility. I didn't see any washrooms or showers, but they could have been inside the office. RV park users can access the hotel's facilities, which include a very nice outdoor pool. Coupons were given for $10 in quarters from the casino, if you choose to redeem them. I agree with previous reviewers about the poor quality of the pavement, but you can pick your own spot to find one you like. Sites are nicely landscaped with gravel and desert plants. Initially water ran with dirt, but once clear, it stayed clear. Good overnight stop.

This is a new park with good "blue" signage to entrance. You have to travel 1/4 mile down the Glendo State Park's dirt road, which is very rough. There are very wide, level, and long gravel sites. We did not have to unhook the trailer for the night. Code lock system on washrooms was not working, and therefore they are not available, unless one asks the office to unlock the building. Wi-fi signal is strong.

The nightly rate is taking advantage of a KOA "Hot Deal" for one night free when you stay 2 nights. Be prepared with a LONG sewer hose if in a full hook-up site. A hose 30 feet long is needed! KOA grounds are not well maintained. Pool serves as a community pool for families in the Cody area, making it crowded. Full hook-up sites are very narrow. There are a few nicer, shaded water and electric sites in the front of the park. We would choose a different park next time.

This is a Passport America park for a reduced rate. For what was paid, it was OK. Site had quite a slope. Park seems to be a bit run down. I would not pay full price. Dump station is in a strange location, making it difficult to get into.

This is a very appealing KOA! The park is very well maintained and is quiet! Playgrounds and pool areas are clean. We stayed in a water/electric site and they are narrower than the full hook-up sites, however, management does a great job at spacing rigs when the park isn't full. Dump station is easily accessible. Cafe available in the evening and for breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

The resort has added some 50 amp sites on the drive before the office. They are very wide and have a thick gravel covering. The water spigot has both filtered and unfiltered available. Wi-Fi signal is strong from the new sites. Firewood is free. There is an additional pet fee per night. There is a sandy swimming beach on the lake for guests and a full-service marina on site. A laundry is available 24 hours a day. There is a very friendly staff!

This park recently changed ownership. It is unclear how the new owners will manage the park. We were only able to get an electric only site, no water. Most sites are shaded. Nice playground area for the kids. To use Wi-Fi, one must be able to "see" the office.

Wi-fi is intermittent and often does not function. Park has a couple of long-term residents who don't seem to follow the camp rules. Tent sites appear unlevel. Angle at which RV sites are located can make parking difficult. We would not stay here again.

We stayed in a "standard full hook-up with a little extra" site. The site was gravel and had a concrete pad for the picnic table, no cable TV service, no wi-fi at site. The park is very family friendly. After about 4 PM drivers need to beware because kids are everywhere riding bikes, scooters, and generally running around. People seem to know this, so it is fairly safe. The wi-fi at the porch was painfully slow. Cost aside, I'd stay there again. Oh, except that you have to choose carefully when you shower. I showered after the bathrooms were cleaned and had hot water, in the morning however the water was cold! For the price, I chose to stay only two nights and move on.

This is a great park to stay in! The back-in sites have nice, long gravel pads. Sites are easy to maneuver into. The bathrooms and showers are very clean! Skip the restaurant. It is understaffed and slow. The RV sites are level. Instant wi-fi at the site. Laundry facilities at the RV section, not in the hotel. We will stay here again.

We stayed in a "deluxe, full hook-up with wi-fi, pull through site". The site was super tight to get in, you'll definitely need an extension cord to reach the electrical, and there was no wi-fi at the site. Although advertised for big rigs, this park did not fit our fifth wheel and truck, while still hooked up!

We stayed in the area of the park without hook-ups. The highway noise from site 15 is very loud. We will not be staying here again.
