This is a very nice, well kept park with many upgrades as most of the sites are owned. Verizon cell/air signal very good. The staff was very friendly. Close access to the freeway (couple of miles). Heavy construction going on on the freeway as well as the exit. Mature trees and landscape. Small restaurant at the entrance was very clean and the food was very good. It was a little too hot, 105, to enjoy the outside amenities of the site. First time to the Vegas area, so not familiar with other campgrounds, but this one is very nice, even though a little on the expensive side. Side trip to and over the Hoover Dam was worth the drive. If ever back this way would probably check out other campgrounds due to price.

Good for an overnight. Sites fairly large and level. Utilities worked well and the 50 amp was required as it was near 100. Verizon air/cell worked very well. Sites are gravel with no grass anywhere, but it is desert. Would stay again if en route. Check at the desk for coupons, we received some for Penney's Diner for $2 off for each of us. The food, breakfast was very good.

Very friendly at check in. Roads are narrow, the sites are close together. The site we are in is fairly level, but pretty narrow. Observed other sites that are somewhat wider and more level. Verizon air/cell signal is very good. Sites are dirt and gravel to in spots to level the site. My beef is the table is sitting on a small hill between sites and you are sitting uphill or downhill, which makes it a little awkward.

We stayed here approx 10 years ago, it has been greatly enlarged since then. Lots of pull-through sites, with grass at every site. The newer areas have side by side hookups and you share the green space with the next door site. It's good to be friendly. Seems like many come here for the summer. Verizon air/cell signal is very good. Have an all you can eat breakfast (eggs, sausage, pancakes, biscuits and gravy for $7). Grandson used the pool and showers, mama used the laundry, all very good. Stayed at the KOA a few miles south of town last year, which is a nice park, but not as nice as here.

OK for a one night stand. Has narrow interior roads. Roads and campsites are dirt. At sign in, you will be asked to sign a legal document, 8.5 by 11, single spaced, regarding your liability for your dog. When asked about the purpose of said document, the person at the desk took umbrage to the question. Verizon air/cell signal is very good. Will not stay here again, in part due to the lack of grass and the poor attitude of the single individual. Others in the office were very friendly.

Stayed here last year and made it a point to stay here again this year. Park has large, mature shade trees, and large areas of grass between sites. Verizon cell and air card strength is very good. Pull through sites B3 and B4 are very nice.

Stayed here a year ago, and the same things apply. This time we made use of the 20% coupons at the Hilton: well worth it as the food is very good, especially the breakfast. Did the laundry here and it is very good, but look for the $1 vs the $1.50 machines. Had dinner at the Pine Inn in Lamoille, instead of the Star Hotel this time. Both are very much worth the visit. The facilities are very good, large and clean. Consider this the best campground in Elko.

Rate is with KOA card. Verizon cell and aircard signal strength is very good. Visited the charcoal kilns located about 10 miles east of the campground: worth the visit, mostly dirt roads. Drove part of the Success Drive, which was worth the drive, but better suited for a 4-wheel drive, not the family car. Also, it does get windy here.

Rate is with GS and includes a $5 charge for the grandson (22) but the dog is free. Verizon cell and aircard is very good. Stayed in the newer pull through section this time. The trees are smaller and there is more clearance for slide outs. It has been mentioned many times here, the sites are all dirt, very fine dirt. So, don't let your cigar hit the ground.

Stayed here about two years ago on the upper level, near the Hwy 46 and had lots of noise. Stayed on the lower level this time, close to the Airport Road. It's pretty busy too. Next time will try for something a little more to the center of the lower level. Rate is an average for a four night stay, Thursday through Sunday night, with Good Sam discount and a $3 a day charge for the dog. Rates are different for week days vs weekends. Has a grass patch at every site and they water at night, but did not during the weekend. Verizon aircard and cell service is very good. Think it is a little nit picky to charge for dogs. Would stay here again.

Stayed here previously and noted that this was not my first choice in the area. Stayed here in order to visit family for Thanksgiving. Not as windy on this visit, but was pretty chilly. Plenty of room for the MH, but not much room between you and the next site. Verizon cell and aircard strength is very good. If you get a chance, go to Jocko's Steak House in Nipomo: it's not too far away and worth a visit.

All of the previous reviews are on point. Verizon cell and air card signal strength is very good. Have stayed here before, so knew what to expect, including the heat. Currently, hotter than hell: about 115 during the day and 80 at night. No tables at sites, and no grass, but there is a club room building with a covered patio to get out of the direct sun. Would stay here again. More Gin and Tonic, please.

This is a large, level, gravel campground. Some trees, but probably 10 years from being real shade. Friendly staff. Had the pancake breakfast which was OK and at a reasonable cost. Verizon cell and aircard signal was very good. Not very busy, so campers were spread out. Utilities and cable were good. We would stay here again.

Rate is with a KOA card. Escorted to our site. A nice park with shade and mostly level sites. Locals say they have not had much rain this year, so the area is a little on the brown side. Most of the water is allocated to the farms. This is a little outside of Durango proper, but an easy drive. Currently, the weather is very pleasant. Would stay here again.

Rate is with GS discount. As noted in earlier reviews, in the middle of town and good if you are walking or riding a bike. If you have a toad, would stay somewhere else. There is road noise from the main street thru town. Interior roads are gravel, and nary a blade of grass anywhere so it makes it dusty. Not to mention that the family dog prefers some grass, somewhere.. Does have mature shade trees. Sites are close, but not cramped. Utilities and cable are OK. Verizon cell and air card signal is very good. 15 years ago, the last time we were in Moab, it was a very small and laid back town. It has grown a great deal and is pretty busy. As indicated earlier, would stay at Sliprock or Oasis, based on a drive by, because they have shade and grass.

When you get to the entrance, you pass thru the entrance to a mobile home park. This gives one pause. But, it is not part of the campground. Very nice park. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Sites are level. Large areas of grass everywhere. Very large, mature shade trees. Separate area for ATV sites with it's own ATV gate. Verizon cell and air card signal strength was very good. Friendly staff. Would stay here again.

It was very, very windy, 20 to 50 mph the day we arrived. The sites are all gravel and so very dusty. The Verizon cell and aircard signal is very good. Some areas of the campground will get noise from the highway. There is not much grass, but lot's of trees.

As noted in earlier reviews, I would not call this a 'resort' but it does charge like one. The rate is with GS discount. The park is easy in and out. Interior roads are blacktop, sites are gravel, and there is a very large concrete patio and grass between every site. Pull throughs are roomy and level. Verizon cell and aircard signal is very good. The entrance is easy to miss and the park is located down a hill and not easily visible from the road. Also as noted earlier, there is train noise, with whistles throughout the night. Not much in the way of noise from I-80.

Rate is without Good Sam discount, as they do not honor during the week of the "Hot August Nights" rally. This is where a lot of folks show: including cars from the 50's and 60's. As at most of these rallies, prices go up, including gas. Gas went up about $0.12 since we got here. The park is very nice, easy access and all pull-throughs. They do not even ask the length of your rig as the sites are all large concrete pads with room for your toad. Very clean, neat and well laid out, with grass at every site and a small table. The temperatures have been in the mid 90's, with isolated thunder showers, so the 50 amp was needed. The Verizon cell and air-card strength was very good. Can be windy: a motorhome neighbor lost it's awning. Would stay here again.

As reported earlier, sites are very close to each other. We called about two weeks ahead, and were told only water & electric were available, which was OK. We checked in and was sent to site #43. They have a check out of 12 noon and a strict check in at 1 PM because of watering. As a matter of fact, while checking in, the curb side of the MH was washed, we had to towel it down. The site we were sent to, was about three inches under water. Mama went to the office, saying it was not for us as it was too small and we expected that with size, weight and jacks that we would sink. They said we reserved that particular site, which was baloney. We were given another site which was better. That said, the park was OK and quiet. Verizon cell and aircard connections were very good. As mentioned earlier, it is the only game in town. We would stay here again, as it is very close to Yosemite, which was the purpose of the stop.

Rate is with Good Sam discount. We have stayed here almost every year over the last twenty years. It is a good stop if you are heading north from the LA/Orange County area as it is a good day of traveling, without pushing it. The sites are mostly sand/gravel and mostly level. It could be a little better. Most all pull throughs have trees, which is good for shade, which is good as it is in the high 90's right now. But, the trees need some trimming, especially the lower parts, as it is close and/or touching the slidouts. It does have 50 amp, which is needed right now. Our site and those around us, have the cable hookup with a male connector, went to the well stocked store, checkin desk to get an adapter, which they provided quickly and free of change. The cable TV has nine channels, of which some are fuzzy, but is passable.

The rate reflects senior discount. As mentioned earlier, sites in the full hook up area can handle big rigs, as they are very long pull through. The few outside spots, as we had, were around the edge of the campground were like scallops and had the hookups curbside, so make sure you're close enough for sewer hookup. Most sites are level, however several seemed to be sloped. It is quiet, very quiet. We went to see wildflowers, and were not disappointed. It was very windy, one of the four days we were there. 40's at night, 60's and 70's during the day. We came in from the west, rte 79 to S22. Very steep, long and windy got me thinking of a brake setup for the toad. The showers and toilets are concrete, walls and floors, and showers cost $. We did not use the facilities. Mama does not like desert, she found it too dirty, but I would go again. Verizon cell and air card access was very good.

Would agree with everything in the previous review. Would add that the sites are pretty much level, saw a couple of spots that looked fairly slanted. The interior roads are kind of narrow, but can handle bigger rigs. The sites are all gravel, which worked well for the couple of days we were here, as it rained a bunch. As to the train noise, the first train of the day is around 7 AM and the last train is around 8 PM. Verizon air card signal was very good.

As stated in previous reviews, the side by side hookups can cause some real closeness. We had site # 12, an end site and did not have anyone across from us. Nice, with a greenbelt and a fire pit. # 13 is similar. Did not look others. Quiet, very quiet. Wi-Fi was offered, but use Verizon air card and reception was very good. We have family in the Pismo area and found this to be the better campground of all of the other places we have stayed, including Pismo Coast Village. Had to get propane, which was a little awkward because of the location of the filling station, but the staff were very helpful. Would stay here again.

As mentioned in earlier reviews, very windy in the afternoon. Very quiet. Does not allow ATV's in the campground. Very dusty, as all sites are gravel and dirt. Some train noise, but not too much. Bunches of raccoons, so don't leave anything outside. Would stay here again, but not first choice, because of dirt and dust, Mama's words. Stayed in the upper campground. The lower campground would not see the dunes, sunset, but would avoid the winds (I think). Fairly level sites, but saw some with extra blocks for leveling.
