Owners could not have been more friendly. Upon check in, they escorted us to our site, even assisted with providing an extra long water hose to reach our rig. Very large grassy sites. Pool was refreshing. No complaints whatsoever. They even delivered the wood to our site. Again, wonderful, friendly owners. The price couldn't be beat.

Beautiful setting in the wooded hills. Sites resemble a state park rather than a private campground but this campground had full-hookups. A little noise from the road, but nothing that would keep me awake at night or from coming back. This looked like the nicest campground anywhere in this area, from the few we saw. Campfire pits at every campsite. Sites very large and private. Close to west entrance of Glacier. I would definitely camp here again if ever in the area.

The only thing missing in this campground was a bigger view, however, everything else was much better than my previous stays at other KOAs. Campfire pits at most sites, except for the older part of the park that had only water and electrical hook-ups. If a campfire pit is important to you, make sure you request one when making your reservation. We stayed 2 nights to tour Battle of the Little Big Horn and then stayed again on our return trip home. Nice pool. Friendly staff.

I give this an 8 because the pool was refreshing and clean on a hot 90 degree day. There are no campfire pits at any of the sites as there is a city rule against fires in the city limits. The campground is next to a busy road with loud road noise at night, if you happen to be in a tent. The hosts were friendly. Shaded sites, but not very big. They needed to mow their grass. However, there was very little to choose from in this area. It was just fine for an over-night stop. I would stay again, in fact, we did on our return trip home from Glacier National Park.

We stayed for just one night. Every site has full-hook ups, a picnic table and fire pits. Nice large sites. The sites along the river are quite scenic. Within walking distance to town. We would return. Great value and easy access.

This was one of the worst campgrounds I have camped in. The campground is in the middle of town, surrounded by a wood fence. Each site is about 15 feet wide, at the most. For obvious reasons, no campfire rings as you are literally in the middle of this town. There were a few long-term residents. Not sure why. The pool seemed nice, however, there were only about 6 other campers in the campground the 1 night we were there and they put us right next to each other instead of spreading out. Absolutely no privacy. I like a campground with room, a view and privacy. Also too expensive. This campground was the 1st KOA we stayed at. Because of this, we avoid KOAs unless there is absolutely no other choice. If given a choice, choose to stay in Cody, WY or in Ten Sleep if you are heading west from the Black Hills to Yellowstone.

Made a reservation in November, 2005 for 2 nights in June, 2006 on the river. The reason I chose this campground was that they offer sites directly on the riverbank. I had numerous e-mails with the reservation staff in November, 2005 and April, 2006 informing them of the size of my rig (29.8 foot 5r pulled by 22 foot F350) and was told "no problem" with the site. This campground is the size of a postage stamp. I'm guessing it rests on 4 or 5 acres. The sites are only about 10 feet wide. 99% of the sites are seasonal sites and there are only 2 or 3 sites they rent out on a nightly basis. I did not know this when I originally booked. The site we reserved, #9 (on the river) was a back-in site. Not only is this campground a nightmare to get into, there was no way our rig was getting into site #9 on the river. The seasonal campers that were surrounding site #9 took up any available space and the very nice managers tried to convince my husband and I that they could talk us through backing the rig into the site. After 15 minutes of completely jacknifing our rig, we had had enough. The only other site available was in the middle of the small campground, away from the river and surrounded by other campers. The only "view" was the sky and our neighbors. I told my husband I could have this view in my driveway in Wisconsin. I was suspicious of this campground to begin with as I found very little, if any, information on it. The pictures on the website were not helpful and there were no other reviews that I could find anywhere on the internet, hence, I'm warning all other possible campers with this review. The management was nice enough, however, their refund policy only gave us 1 night refund. Luckily we were able to get into Elk Meadow RV Park across the street where we enjoyed fantastic views of the Rocky Mountains from our campsite. Had I had more than 2 nights in Estes Park, I would have taken more time to complain about a full refund. I was just glad to get to be able to find an open site at another campground during the busy summer camping season.

I have read previous reviews and disagree with the negative posts. My husband and I found ourselves in need of a campsite as the one I had booked at another campground was too small for our 29 foot fifth wheel. The staff at Elk Meadows was incredibly helpful and accommodating in every aspect of our stay. Yes, the roads are gravel (or dirt) however, it appears this area of Colorado at this time of the year was suffering a drought and it certainly wasn't the campground's fault that the area was dusty. I found the sites to be large enough and I would certainly not call it "rig-to-rig" close. The campground which we could not get into was "rig-to-rig" close. This was not. The views were reason we came to this part of the country and we were not disappointed. I would definitely come back again.

At check-in, it looked like this campground had it all: and it did! Well, some were good and some were bad. The good: fabulous pool with a little snack shop right by that sold refreshing cocktails too. A great lake for swimming and boating, and very large sites! The bad: After driving down 1 street of this campground, you will have seen and experienced every conceivable way you can turn your camper (or RV or bus or 1942 trailer) into a show palace right out of the movie "Deliverance." And I'm not joking. The non-permanent sites by the new pool are basically out in the middle of a field but they have water and electricity, if you can reach them. The placement of the firepits and the electrical/water hook ups are not meant for a camper or RV. Maybe a tent? Bring a long hose and extension cord to hook up, and you will be fine. The pool and beach make up for the "shacks." Yikes.

Huge campground! You have to rent a golf cart to get around, but that is half the fun. I booked our site for June in March. We received confirmation via mail with our campsite clearly marked on it. We were traveling with another RV. When we checked in, they pointed us in the direction of our campsite, however, when we got to the actual sites, a lady from that area of the campground (she was a long-term resident) told us we were in the wrong area of the park as that area wasn't for nightly rent. We had to go back to the office, which was a feat in and of itself with all the traffic for check-ins, children running around everywhere, etc. The office staff told me it wasn't their fault but some lease-agreement gone awry. I know it wasn't MY fault. Due to them being so booked up, the few remaining sites that could hold a 30' RV and us, were very uneven. I had a 3 foot drop from my bottom step. Jellystone didn't credit our bill, or give us a discount for this inconvenience. We were "lucky" to have been camping on the last 3 days of the "cheap" rates (meaning they don't charge the per-person rate). I can't imagine paying that much per person on top of your campsite. I felt the sites were too un-level and small for the price they charge. Knock off $20 a night and this place would be perfect. If you don't have kids, you probably want to look elsewhere. If you do have kids and can afford it, the kids will love this place.

This campground has become the only campground in the Sioux Falls area that we will stay. It is easy to get to and the staff is incredibly welcoming and helpful. Nice pool. Bathrooms clean and nice. The pull throughs are a nice size and have a nice patch of grass, tree and individual fire pit at each campsite. Very nice campground for kids, or those of us without kids-

Very few campgrounds in the Gillette, Wy area, so you get what is available. This campground is relatively easy to find. It is technically right in town but surrounded by trees and a nice walking path along the outside of the campground. The campground does not have a website. I found it in my AAA campbook. The pool is above-ground and it wasn't open yet in eary June, for obvious reasons. Still a little chilly. We enjoyed our 1 night stay on our way to Yellowstone. Do not let the decor or paint-job of the office scare you away. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
