This park will probably rank as a 9 or 10 in a year or two. There is quite a bit of construction going on in the common areas. The bathrooms and showers that have been rebuilt are great. The ones that haven't are absolutely disgusting. The pool looks like it will be nice when they get it done. There will be a small village and several more cabins added in the future. The kids enjoyed the jumping pillow and swings. We went mid-week, so the zip lines, bike rentals and nature walks were all closed. Again, looks like a typical activity packed KOA. The sites were fairly spacious with several of them having a brick patio and furniture. One thing we could have done without was the occasionally overwhelming smell of propane and sewer gas. Don't know what that was about. Peacocks and quail roam the campground and are interesting to watch. I think I'd like to return here in a year or two to see the finished product.

We camped here in a 35' class A. Plenty of room for rig and plenty of open space around you. All facilities worked. Restrooms were interesting. Kind of an open air thing with flush toilets and stalls. Served the purpose. Showers were fairly clean and private. Some were pay, some were not. The swimming lake was a nice surprise. Could be better maintained, but was nice during the warm weather. I agree with previous reviewers about the teenage staff. A little too focused on each other and not focusing on what's going on around them. I'd camp here again for a short visit. Not a whole lot to do in the area to keep us longer.

Two ways to camp here. With hook ups at a site a mile and a half from the water, or without hook ups down by the water with all the other 'campers'. We've done both. Wouldn't suggest hook up area for anything longer than 30'. Roads are tight and trees are low. Definitely need to bring leveling blocks with you. A little quieter here than down below. The parking for campsites is fairly level and paved. Keep in mind you'll be surrounded by tents, trailers, RVs, or even people sleeping in the back of their trucks. This place has been around for a long time and it shows. The showers and bathrooms are beat but functional. There is a store onsite but they charge obscene amounts for the basics ($8 for a 20# bag of ice). Rangers disappear after 11 pm and you're on your own. Weekdays that's not so bad, but Fri- Sun forget it. Avoid the hassle and come in on Sun and pull out by Fri. After 30 years of camping here with a large group of family/friends,I think we'll look elsewhere for our annual event. Bummer...

The park is spacious and fairly well kept. Sites are easy to access and maintained. The restrooms were horrible and the showers were even worse. If you just use the facilities in your RV you'll be golden. Ants are an issue here. Woke up both mornings we were here to not just a few, but trails of ants inside. The old comet cleanser trick didn't seem to help either. Be forewarned! Park does get busy on the weekends.

This park was OK. Basically a parking lot with hook-ups. We spent most of our time at the canyon and not in the motorhome. Kids had fun watching the Grand Canyon train go by as it was towed in and out each day. It was OK for the two nights we were there, but I wouldn't want to stay there much longer.

We stayed here for one night. It had everything you needed but nothing more. Nothing for the kids to do. Very open and accessible. OK for an one-nighter but nothing special.

Park was typical KOA. We've stayed here twice. Family oriented, things for the kids, events/ activities planned during busy season. Sites were fine, but can get a little beat up. Bathrooms and showers are always in need of cleaning. They get so many people in and out that I think it is difficult to keep up with. Complaints are usually dealt with in a timely manner. Unsupervised kids can sometimes be a problem. Sites are shady and fairly level.

This KOA was a nice surprise for a one night stay. Small playground for the kids. Pool was clean and warm. Gravel roads and sites were level and in working order. Hosts were friendly and held an ice cream social on a week night. Even though this campground is used by ATV campers, it was still quiet and dust free. Lots of shade trees and plenty of room between sites.

Love this place! Our third year staying here. Clean, well run, and family oriented park. Access is good. Sites are large and level. Office staff is willing to help with questions. Close to west entrance of Yellowstone and the rest of town. The office closes a little early (7 pm) so get your supplies early. A little pricey but worth the knowledge that we'll have a well maintained level place to pull into after driving 1200 miles. We'll be back again... and again.

Liked this wooded campground. Sites are set up a bit oddly and can be quite uneven. Bring your leveling blocks. Bring your fishing poles too, because there is a cute little catch and release trout pond on the property. Restrooms can be a hike, but that's the price you pay for camping in the woods. Satellite reception can be spotty because of the trees, but the privacy and the shade were worth it. If you've got a big rig double check with the front office on your site assignment. The sites can get narrow, but it was the turns on the steep access roads to them that made me pay close attention as we were pulling in. Cute gift shop/store/office up front.

Nice asphalt park. Sites are separated by tall hedges and hook-ups are in good condition. Small lakes the kids can fish in and small play area in good shape. Quiet park near restaurants, stores and easy freeway access. Sites could be a bit cozy for larger big rigs, but the front office will work with you on that. Was a little concerned about what we would find with the previous reviews, but was pleasantly surprised upon our arrival.

First, the positives. We really liked this place for the forest-like setting and small trails that led to the lake and mini-market/pizza parlor/ice cream parlor. There were tons of activities to chose from at the lake resort. A good portion of their sites are surrounded by trees but they're more than willing to help you get into your site and suggest the best set-up. Perhaps that's why they don't allow self-parking, and you must arrive before dark. A few minor negatives. Be sure to bring along a few leveling blocks just in case you get a site back in the trees that isn't quite level. Those beautiful shady trees also tend to block satellite signals too. The restrooms and showers were clean, but very dated. Mosquitoes can be really bad here so don't forget the bug spray. Overall, the kids liked it and the hubby liked it and pleasing them is no small feat.
