Our campsite was level except for a drop off where we parked our car, but we had no problem getting our 40' motorhome in here w/the car attached. If wifi is important to you, ask for a spot behind the office (we had #12) because it's a DSL system that doesn't reach all over the park very well. There's a pond where you can fish w/out a license. We caught a 13" rainbow trout that was tasty! Very wooded and state-park like. Only thing that would make it better is to have cable because w/out a dish (like us) there's only 1 station (NBC). Oh...and the only cell phones that work out here are ones on Verizon.

I wouldn't call the waterfront a "lake", more like an artificially colored green pond. When we made a reservation, we could only get a water & elect. site for $33 (good sam disc.), which I thought was pretty pricey for a campground out in the middle of nowhere, but close to the Canadian border. Then I found out we had a "grass front" site, which was basically an afterthought and a way to generate more money. Turns out these are much nicer than being in the main campground because the sites are bigger and the area is quieter. I'm not squashed in next to my neighbor and I'm away from all the screaming kids (main reason I usually avoid KOA's). So I guess I'd stay here again if nothing cheaper was available.

Very pretty campground, right on the river. If you go during the week, should be no problem to get a site on the river, even in the summer. There's free wi-fi, but I had trouble connecting from spot #33. Not much of a town, especially considering the size and beauty of the park. Pull-thrus are crescent shaped, but easy. Next time I'll get a back-in on the river. I'd stay here again.

Not a bad place for a stop over for the price. Wi-fi is free, but I couldn't even pick up the network, let alone connect to it. Owner was nice, but no help with the wi-fi. Over 60 cable channels. Not the most scenic & lots of permanent residents, but overall worth the money for a stopover. I'd stay here again.

Decent RV park about 12 miles west of Denver. Similar to other urban RV parks, it's not too fancy an the sites are close together. The wi-fi is free, but doesn't always work. There's a $2/day charge for A/C which I think is a bit much for 30amp. We had a package shipped here which got refused by the office mgr's mom who doesn't really know what's going on. Several rigs look like long-timers. Park has been full since we got here on a Sunday, so make reservations if you're looking for a park with wifi in the Denver area. I would probably stay here again, but in cooler weather.

This is an RPI/Coast2Coast resort. The normal RPI rate is $8, but they squeeze an extra buck out by charging extra for 50amp. The wifi comes and goes like most free ones do. But the RULES...oh my! They make sure you don't get past the guard gate w/out knowing the rules. You are greeted with a listing of them, along with a "enjoy your stay". Security travels around 24/7 with RADAR DETECTORS to enforce the 10mph speed limit. Just to be a rebel, I once went 11mph. I don't think you can get a state-enforced ticket, but I don't want to find out. One of the positives is that activities are open to everyone, not just park members like in other RPI parks I've visited. It's not 4-5 miles from Rapid City, it's more like 12, so there's no "running to the store" unless you need "gas station food". The pool is huge and nice. The 3 hot tubs are residential sized and kept at: 92, 98 and 102 degrees and marked, "12 & under", "13 & older" and "18 & older" If you're a member, you can store your RV here and they'll bring it out and park it for you in a spot when you're coming in. You don't even need a tow vehicle if you have a fifth wheel or travel trailer. Not a bad place to be a member if you can live w/the rules and are from the area.

Despite being close to I-90, the park is 50' down, so it's quiet. Park now has free wifi. Owner is friendly & park is in good condition. Very easy in/out and on/off freeway. Rib & Chop house is excellent and very reasonably priced. Not much to th town. Devil's Tower is not a day drive, unless you like driving over 300 mile round trip in a day. Sheridan is a sleepy little western town. I'd stay here again for a night, but there's not enough to do to warrent anything longer.

Wonderful park with generous and friendly hosts. We don't usually stay in state parks, but we had no trouble getting our 40' MH in & out of this one. Very quiet, kid-friendly, and paved sites. Beach loop is the most big-rig friendly because there's less trees than other loops. About 1.25 hrs. to Seattle, less if you take the ferry. I would stay here again.

A park that looks as nice on the website as it does in person. Free Wi-Fi is spotty, but free. Lots of cable TV channels that come in well. Nice, level, cement pads and far enough from the road that it's quiet. Aviation museum is walking distance (about 1/4 mile) away. Beautiful park. Will definitely stay here again.

Very nice park and very nice owners. Try to get a site on or close to #47. It's a back-in, but furthest from the road noise & quite quiet. Spots are very deep, and water/ele. are at the back, but we had plenty of cord to reach. Internet is a pay service and quiet pricey for a week ($20). Easy access in & out off the freeway. Our site was easy to back into, and others seem like that they would be as well. I just hope it stops raining so we can explore the area.

I agree with the other poster except to say that it was a tight fit for a 40' motorhome. We had one of the "river front" sites, which was on the river bed, but the actual river was a short walk away. Nice and quiet setting, but too much money for what you get. I think they jacked up the prices to pay for the pavement that's buckling because of upcoming tree roots.

Don't make reservations here unless you are absolutely sure you will be staying here, because there are no refunds: ever. I even called the owner because the manager never told me this. The owner never called me back. I tried to use my "rain check" recently. This was a destination park after 4 days of boondocking, so I had full tanks. They have no dump station or sewer hookups. They send you down the road 5 miles to pay $5 to dump. Instead we gave up the money and went down the road to stay. While the staff wasn't rude, the place was a dump. I'd never stay here again. Go to Windsorland instead. Skip the KOA which charges $315/week!

The best of the 3 parks in the SLC area. Nightly price seems expensive, but weekly rate w/Good Sam or AAA is $162 (2 nights free), so that brings it down to $23/night. The only park of the 3 with wi-fi, although a pay service, we paid for the month-to-month service which is only $16.95 and cancellable within 1st month. The park is clean and kept up. Even has a restaurant of sorts from a mobile trailer & serves up home cookin'. My only complaint is that there's train tracks all around, so the train whistles are frequent, including at night. I'd stay here again.

Very nice, quiet campground within walking distance to the little town of Kanab. For an isolated little town, we kept ourselves very busy. Within a day's drive are Zion, Bryce Canyon, Best Friends (huge) animal sanctuary, and awesome mountain biking. Laundry is cheap. Wi-Fi is free. The whole park is immaculate! And did I mention quiet? I'd definitely stay here again.

The only reason I'm not giving this park a "10" is because the Wi-Fi doesn't work real well if you're far from the clubhouse. But it's free, so I guess you get what you pay for. The grounds are beautiful, and will be more so as the landscape grows up. The sites are spacious, the picnic tables sturdy, and it's relatively quiet. The second tier has a view, but backs up to state Hwy. 46. A premium site gets you a cement pad instead of packed sand. As for location, you couldn't ask for better. Will definitely return when we're in the area.

Beautiful park right next to govt. preseve. Tons of activities: hiking, biking, fishing, boating (rentals available). Very quiet and peaceful park. Staff in the office was very friendly, but a volunteer I ran into was not so. She was part of setting up for a party of a group that had rented the clubhouse. I was next door doing laundry and tried to use the clubhouse bathroom. She physically blocked the door and "ordered" me to go elsewhere because "her" group had rented this clubhouse. Other people approached me later and apologized for her behavior. I would stay here again, despite the grumpy old volunteer.

Beautiful park with cement pads! Park is right at the base of the mountain and far enough from the casino to be quiet and dark at night. We only stayed one night on our way to San Diego, but I'd definitely stay here again. Oh: the player's club card only gets you $2 off in the restaurants, not a free RV site like I thought.

Excellent campground, especially for the price. Tenters can get a non-elect. site for $18. They just built a new campground and it still fills up, even during the week, especially in February. Quiet and sites are well spread out. My neighbor was easily 75' away. Excellent mountainbiking and hiking trails from the campground. Even an equestrian center with barn and RV parking for the horse people. Nice location, just 8 miles north of Tucson and by far the most reasonable, quietest, and nicest campground for the money.

Clean park & not trashy at all. Pool & hot tub were clean, but tiny. Getting into back-in spaces was very tight. Took us awhile w/a 40' moho. Forget about the wi-fi & cable. Wi-fi was too weak of a signal to be useable, & cable is a bunch of local channels. Employees are pleasant & helped us get into a spot. Location is a plus. You can hear planes, but as background noise. Traffic not bad either. Whole area was torn up for construction, making for some tight swerving between cones.

Rather pricey and the trash is far away, but my favorite place so far! I could easily spend a winter here, since there is sooo much to do. We were in the pet section because we have a bird, and since there were little dogs yipping, I wasn't so concerned when my bird screamed. Tons of activities (pickleball, group bike rides, woodworking, computers, sewing, etc.), that you almost never have to leave the park. I also like that it's outside of town, so it's easy off and on the freeway. The freeway is close enough to be convenient, but far enough to keep the park quiet. It's clean, well maintained, and the rules are quietly followed. Some complain that they charge your credit card when you make a reservation, but to me that made setup all that easier, since we had over 24 hours to get to the office and sign paperwork. Definitely coming here again!!!

Not a bad place. Some of the literature says it's 55+, however, at 37 & 38, we are nowhere close and had no problems getting a site. They say they have Wi-Fi, but there is currently only 1 antenna for the whole park. I was lucky enough to be given the WEP code by my neighbor so I could use his. The park's service claims a daily rate of an astounding $8.95/day! The freeway noise isn't too bad, but we have double pane windows. Anything else would be rather noisy. We came here from Quartzsite to get cleaned up (DUST!) and found a couple of mobile cleaning services that wash and wax for VERY reasonable prices. We got ours washed for $35 and hand-waxed for another $80 using quality wax. There's also a couple of mobile RV techs running around. Be warned about Yuma: it's a retirement town, so there is not a lot going on.

Beautiful park with excellent facilities. A real deal at $12/night with PA discount. Weather was too cold to enjoy the pool or boats on the lake. Be warned though...if you're not a gambler, it's not worth the trek to Pahrump because there's NOTHING to do other than gamble. At least in Vegas there's stuff to do besides gamble. You can eat cheap at the buffet, with people standing next to you at the buffet with cigarettes dangling out of their mouths. *Barf* Two of us ate for $6 with the 2 for 1 coupon, but I wouldn't eat there again. Mindless gambling zombies eating the nastiest greasiest food I've ever seen. Like I said...beautiful park, but not worth going all the way to Pahrump...especially if you don't like cigarette smoke.

Very nice and well maintained campground. Many activities, similar to larger resorts, but has more of a "small town" feel due to having only 100 sites. All facilities are in excellent shape. Love the free DVD/VHS rentals! Not much around, but there is a Starbucks 2 miles away. 2 parks in the area are closing, meaning a loss of 1100 rental spots, so make plans early. Free wi-fi was awesome, cable TV is lacking entertainment-type channels. Lot of info-type channels: CNN, BBC, Discovery health, Fox news, TBS, etc. I'd definitely stay here again!

Rude, rude, rude people in the office. Told office I'd reserved mtn. w/e site, but was on a ocean w/e. After disappearing into the small office for 10 minutes, I was told I was "lucky it was their fault" and given a credit for the extra $10/night I'd paid. I was lucky? Then the internet NEVER worked at my site (V-13). When I asked if it was working, the lady said, "Well it's working for me." I said that it hasn't worked for me in the 5 days I've been here unless I walked down the hill to the sheltered picnic tables. To which I got, "Well I guess that's what you'll have to do then." View was great and access is easy, but you can't turn south out of the park (we did anyway), and the place is pricey. I won't stay here again. Should have asked for a partial refund since I was essentially paying for internet that I didn't have.

Still haven't seen much of this campground, as we were tired and it was near dark when we pulled in. This was the alternative to the skanky Wal-Mart we were originally going to stay at in Barstow. Within 5 minutes, crackheads were begging for money, so we came here. Looks very nice. Gates closed after 6pm, which makes me at least feel secure. Tons of cable TV channels, in English, Spanish, and something Asian. No official Wi-Fi, but I found 2 unsecured networks to use. Park is quiet, but not too far from I-15. Kind of pricey, as the above rate is for Good Sam. I'd stay here again.

Very shaded and beautiful park. Clean laundry room ($1.25 to wash, $1 to dry), down by the creek, so cell service is sporadic in the park. Wi-fi is free, but it's a DSL that goes in & out, but better than nothing. When DSL was out, I told the office and the response was, "well all the green lights are lit". Not the friendliest of folks, but not rude either. Quieter than most places I've stayed. Very few kids except on weekends. In addition to the number of trees, the other best thing is the location. This is our 3rd time in Sedona (usually stay in a motel in Oak Creek) but our first in an RV. I'll definitely stay here again.

This is a Passport America campground, so with tax we paid $10.65 for the 1 night we stayed here. There's a few trees and it's 1/2 mile from I-40, but the noise is minimal, but best of all FREE WI-FI! They limit the PA members to water & electric, but since we were only staying 1 night, we didn't mind. There was a grand total of 4 RV's and 4 seasonals on a Saturday night, so the park was quiet. Can see Flagstaff mtn. in the distance.

Beautiful park with very easy approach (not a tail scraper) up a smoothly paved road. Owners are very nice and take good care of the park. Stayed 3 nights and saw a lot of 1 nighters, probably due to it being a Passport America campground. Very quiet. Negatives: Charge extra for 50 amps because sites that fit RV's over 35', but prohibit electric heaters (used it anyway). Charge extra for cable that only has 10 channels. Also charge extra for wi-fi, but that's expected. Hint: Wi-fi key is same everyday. Overall, a good campground for the money. We drove through the KOA in Hot Springs to get propane. Scraped the tail twice and had to go around some tight turns. For $10/night less, Cloud 9 is it!

Under new management as of Oct.15, 2005. Still no Wi-Fi but they're "fixin" to get it installed. Not the most scenic place, and a bit overpriced at $32, but for $16 with Passport America discount, definitely worth a night to see Graceland and downtown Memphis. New owners are some of the most polite people I've ever met, so the park is in good hands.

I would have rated it higher except for the trains ran often and were loud. Then there were the black walnuts and acorns that fell on our RV regularly with a bang. Beautiful campground though, very scenic, and the waterfront sites are only $2 more. Got good cell phone service here with T-mobile but not with Verizon.

We didn't stay here, but drove up to check it out because we wanted to see what you get for $10 more per night than we're paying elsewhere. The first 3 sites do have a gorgeous view, but for class A motorhomes, that last steep turn will definitely be a tail scraper: beware! In addition, we didn't see how anyone could turn around anything bigger than 30' to get out. Good luck. I'll be staying elsewhere.

You can't beat this campground for convienence! Our site was pretty quiet, but there are some sites that are very close to the road. Owner is friendly and fun. It's not the most scenic, but it's a lot less $ than other places that are further away from town. Internet is DSL and only $2/day for the site, not per laptop (we have 2), but it's a bit on the slow side. Cable TV is excellent with 79 channels. We'd definitely stay here again.

Beautiful setting and friendly owners. Short-term people tend to be on the lake side of the campground, which isn't visible from the campsite because it's built up, so it's above the campground. The seasonals (and there were a lot of them) are on the creekside, across the road from the lake. Electrical service was iffy at best. On weekends (in Oct. so not so busy) our fridge was blinking "low AC," our lights were dim and our microwave couldn't get enough power to melt butter. When we complained to the owner he shrugged his shoulders and said in the summer it was difficult to run A/C, even though he'd upped the power to the campground. OH, and call the campground for directions before getting on 287 because map programs will route you onto one lane dirt roads that you really don't want to take your RV on. Don't plan on getting any cell phone service here. Need to drive to Wellsboro, about 8 miles north.

Very scenic and close to Otsego lake but too close to the road and too noisy for my tastes. Fine for an overnight stay.

Nice view of Lake Superior, but closer to the highway and louder than I would have liked. Was good for 1 night stay. Shared the campground with 3 large Prevost/Bluebird buses, so they can definitely handle the big rigs.

Free wi-fi internet was just added 2 weeks ago. Considering the water/ele. sites were $10/night less than full-hookups (includes wi-fi but no cable/sewer), we probably would pick those sites if we were to return. We have no kids and had plenty to do to entertain ourselves with all the mountain biking, road biking and kayaking opportunities in the area. Rumor is that there's no fish in the lake, but we only fished from the docks.

Looks nice from the website and the free wi-fi is awesome. However, what the website doesn't tell you is that it's right on US-2 (big loud trucks all day) and a train almost literally runs through the campground (VERY loud). Owners are very friendly and helpful, but it's just LOUD.

Basically is a extra chunk of land behind a gas station that was turned into a small campground. If you get one of the back site (we were in #6), it's pretty quiet, surprisingly because it's off a main road. Guess a main road waaayy our there is not too main. Is across the street from Rifle River Recreation area, where the campsites are a lot closer together and the price is $3 cheaper but has no water hookups. Almost all sites are shaded and nicely spaced out.

Very nice city-owned park just 4 miles outside of town. We stay here every year for a mountain bike race in August. The "lake front" sites are now a river since the big flood of '04, but still a very nice place with plenty of trees around.
