Physically, a very nice park with good room between sites. Our site was not level. Roads and sites are paved. Wi-Fi was poor unless you were in certain areas, certainly not in ours. Used out AT&T 3G for much of the time. AT&T cellular was OK in certain places, no signal in others, probably due to the heavily-treed sites. Because it was summer peak, park was very crowded due to high number of people in each rig. Many dogs being walked on 25-foot leads, wandering all over and even into people walking on other side of street. This also made it difficult for owners of smaller dogs to walk their dogs in the park, A good number of owners did not pick up. Never saw anyone from the office/park come thru the park- they seemed to "hunker down" in the office. Some large rugs were put on the grass at sites, killing the grass. Never anyone checking on anything. Could be rated much higher if staff cared to see what is going on, and wifi worked throughout the park. Probably the best park in the area, though.

While not a destination resort, a great place to stay wile visiting the Portland area. A few miles from the light rail station in Gresham, giving easy access to downtown Portland and other parts of the area. Good space between the sites, utilities worked fine. Staff very helpful and friendly, kept a good eye on what was going on around the park. We have two dogs, and had no problems with rules/regulation, would rate it pet-friendly. Easy access off I-84. We had no issues with general rules/regulations either: the number was a lot lower than many parks we have been in. Only negative was the Tengo internet (full access) constantly going on and off, apparently not the norm, but I have yet to have a good experience with Tengo anywhere. Would return again.

Very nicely landscaped, with lots of open area to give it a spacious feel. We were lucky enough to be on an end, but the site on the other side of was was a lot closer than I had expected. If you have a tree on the site next to you, there is considerably more room between sites. I would have been a lot less happy if I had one of the narrower sites. Park was efficiently run. Some kind of band concert (assume orivate, but perhaps park-sponsored: we had no announcement) from about 4-9pm on Saturday was very loud even though we were 6-8 rows away, we couldn't sit outside and talk. To each his/her own, but we thought it very intrusive. Might return again, given the price.

Located on the Columbia River, this is a great place for an overnight while traveling, or for longer if you have a boat or visiting the area. We had a pull-through site on the edge of the bluff overlooking the marina and river: a great view! Everything worked as it should, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are spacious. The ones on the interior have a lot of shade, (outside perimeter sites are pull-throughs) little if any shade on the pull-throughs. Would return if in the area.

What a wonderful park! The sites are very spacious, and you have a bright, open feeling looking out. Plenty of space between the level, gravel sites. Lots of open grassy areas in the park, which has a beach on the river. Great restaurant just down the road. Conveniently located for visiting downtown or touring around the area. Wi-Fi was generally quite fast. Everything we saw was clean and well-mintained. Staff very friendly and helpful. Best, cleanest, brightest laundry room we've ever seen. We would definitely return here if in the area. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

I was very disappointed with this campground. Selected it after studying ratings and comments here, and it was not what was pictured or described. First, the sites are very narrow. Large boulders, electric posts, water pipes, trash cans, etc. made vehicle placement with slideouts a problem. Also, the sites were not level, not only mine but many of the others as well. Sites were unkempt, grass never apparently mowed, etc. Several sites had four vehicles per site: two large RVs and associated vehicles in them. One such group was next to me, and they had FIVE vehicles, parking the extra one in my space, right behind my trailer and blocking me in. This behavior was tolerated throughout the park. There was train whistle noise clearly audible from 5am-10pm.. One of the most disappointing parks I've stayed in. I will not return.

Well-maintained park, with flowers everywhere. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Train line ran in back of our site, some minor noise during the day, but never heard anything at night. Many sites have good shade: ours happened to have one small tree. Close to Missoula for shopping, sightseeing, but has a country feel to it. Convenient for headed to/from Glacier National Park. Water pressure 40psi. Friendly staff.

A wonderful park. Rate reflects 10% discount. Spacious sites, pretty level. Friendly and helpful staff. WiFi was not working while we were here. The equipment was out for repair after a lightning incident. Fantastic restaurant next door: Continental Divide. Was easy walking distance. If you like to flyfish, this is a good base (evidenced by the many drift boats on site.) Historic Virginia City and Nevada City are close by. Very complete grocery store and hardware store just down the road. RV tech staying in the park for the summers, makes it handy for any repair work. Would definitely stay here again.

Great facility, even though pricey. Very spacious sites, capable of handling very large rigs. The only negatives were: 1. The park's use of Tengo internet, which gave you a two hour window of internet use per day. Any other time/more use required buying time from Tengo. Several times had difficult to log on. 2. The trash bins, which were supposedly bear-proof, were overflowing for at least two days. Any bear happening by, would have had their choice of the entire bin, as the lids would not close due to being overfilled.

Great place to stay and use as a base to see the park, and plenty of walking/recreational activities close by. Lots going on at the Visitor Center, marina, trails, etc. Heavily shaded, you had to look up at the sky to know the sun had risen. Utilities all worked well, site was level and spacious. Would stay here again.

Park is relatively new well-maintained with many amenities. The staff is friendly and helpful. Good setup for walking dogs. Best park in Salt Lake City area. But a few negatives kept it from getting a higher rating. Sites, including the pricier ones, are tight, though no problems getting 3 slides out and still having room. Laundry machines are relatively few for a park this size. There is an "off road vehicle" park next door, and the roaring engines even came through double pane windows- sounded like being on maneuvers with the Armored Division. When the wind blows "the wrong way" the odor from the refinery located on the other side brings odors which almost made me nauseous working on the rig and made me give up and go inside. If I had to stay in Salt Lake City, I'd stay here, but I would definitely look to find a way to avoid it. Too bad, as the park has a number of good things going for it.

A great place to stay near Capitol Reef National Park. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. The bathroom is spotless. We will return.

Have stayed here before, and always debate going back at the $50/night rate. It's 20 minutes from the park to the Zion National Park west entrance. On the one hand, it's very pretty, well-maintained with friendly staff. But the sites are quite narrow; the small washers/dryers are $2 each; there's no cable TV, and a number of ATVs are out-and-about on the weekends. For $50 a night, I expect more. That said, there aren't any other "high end" full hookup parks near Zion. BTW: Zion National Park is rigidly enforcing the 50-foot maximum length limit for the tunnel now. I was rejected and had to turn back and go around the long way because I was said to be 6 inches over the limit.

Very convenient for visiting Capitol Reef NP. Campground very clean, well-maintained. Everything worked well, including Wi-Fi. Didn't use showers- charge is $5/night. Grass between sites, some trees. Convenience stores, coffee shop and gas/propane across street. Scenic views to the south. Some occasional minor road noise (noisy exhaust from some trucks) from Hwy 24, but not bad, especially if you are not in the back-in row closest to the road. Traffic is light, so this is not a big deal. Would definitely return here.

OK for a night- the only choice in the area for hookups. If you don't need them, try Goblin Valley State Park- great location and facilities, just no hookups. ATVs popular among the clientèle, and they can ride around (and around) until 10:30 PM. Sites are basically dirt. Big Rig area is in back, laid out strangely- a circle of dirt with hookups on the very outside perimeter, so you either "back in" (no defined spaces) and have a long utility run, or perhaps park parallel to the perimeter if it's not going to be full. Regular pull-throughs have some gravel, aren't too bad. Showers/restrooms were clean, but broken tiles, floors. Wi-Fi worked well. Laundry room has washers and dryers- didn't use or see anyone using them. Staff very friendly, but the place is just "tired". I'd be pressed to go back.

This was fine for an overnight stop. The sites are dirt, some were level (like mine), and others not quite. The Wi-Fi was strong, and it's a short distance off the interstate. The utilities were fine (didn't use the cable TV). The owners who live in a house onsite, were extremely friendly and helpful. They came to our site and offered assistance with the setup. Will stay here again when traveling through. They also offer a AAA discount.

Beautiful park! Spacious sites, clean, nice views, on the Colorado River, just off I-70. Staff friendly and keeps the facilities in good shape. What's not to like? We'd camp here any time we are in the area.

Not too crowded when we were here, so the views were even better: lovely scenery. Site was level, good hookups in our pull-through site. Some walking to the store, but bathrooms close by. Not much doing in the area other than sightseeing, but that was plenty! Can take Lake Powell cruises from the nearby large motel facility (which also has restaurant/lounge, etc.). A fair walk or short drive. The only real negative was that local "youth" came to the empty site across the street in the evening and built a large fire in the fire pit, drank beer and partied until around midnight. No patrol came through, no phone service (and who to call in these days of "self-service" at the parks). Would have rated higher except for that.
