Lovely new (5 years) campground with friendly owners dedicated to making it a great camping experience. Acres of mowed trails for walking or golf carts. Many tent sites and lots of amenities for tenters, like 2 wheel carts for toting your stuff down the hill to the campsites right on the Shenandoah river. Lovely playground. Wi-Fi is planned. RV sites are level, gravel and grass. Full hookups. Lots of young trees meaning more shade in years to come. Many tent sites are in the woods and shaded.
This is our third stop at Peter D's. I am responding to the July 2013 review. I understand that this is a pretty basic park, but if you think these sites are close together you should check out any campground around Loveland Co. At some parks, they park you front to back next to each other and you could literally hand your neighbor the Poupon mustard through the window. And shade? Have you looked around? There is no shade in the entire county! In this environment it would be wasteful to be pouring water on shade trees for the comfort of transients. We love this park because it is immaculately clean, the owner is friendly and welcoming and it is an easy stop off either I25 or I90. If we are traveling through Wyoming, we plan to make Sheridan our overnight stop. I would give this park a 10 except it doesn't have a pool or playground or that type of resort amenities. It cannot be beat as an overnight spot. And don't miss the Wyoming Rib and Chop house downtown.
This county run campground was once privately owned and may have had cable at that time, but does not now. We had good WiFi reception in a site near the antenna. The showers are pay per use. Gravel sites with patios and picnic tables and fire rings. Actually the whole campground is gravel with some trees. Not as sardine packed as many campgrounds in the area. Lots of tenters when we were here. Personnel very friendly and helpful. This campground is very close to the Beaver Meadows entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Handicap accessibility is not the best as the whole campground is tiered on the side of a hill and not all stairways have railings. Reservations are made through Reserve America, which we don't think does a good job and adds fees. We drove in asking for reservations for tomorrow and were told that we would have to call or go online.
Very crowded with campers parked alternating front to back. You could pass the Poupon to the guy on one side and your front door is 6 feet from the guy on the other side. When it is this tight the rules must be enforced, but they are not. The folks at our front door had three vehicles in addition to their large 5th wheel, stuff all over the patio including a queen size mattress on our picnic table. We will not stay here again.
What a welcome we have had here! My blind dog was off leash when we first got out of the camper to register and the owner's reaction was to greet the dog and ask me if I'd like to let him in the fenced area. No scolding about not being on a leash. That was just the first introduction. When it turned out that my wife needed to go to the Emergency Room, they offered to lend us their car! They gave us corn from their garden and some local potatoes. Over and over they impressed upon us that if there was ANYTHING we needed, to call them. It's pretty hot here during our stay so we didn't really use the campground amenities, but it is a lovely, friendly, convenient (both to the highway and town) campground and we would not hesitate to recommend it highly.
