We were absolutely disgusted at what we were charged at Bridgeview. On top of the high base rate of $50, we were charged $3.50 for each child, our small dog, and WI-FI. For our nearly $70, we were put in the Arizona section where the sites are made up entirely of gravel and shale. It didn't even offer cable! This place calls itself a resort but besides having a pool and a large laundry room, we saw nothing to indicate a "resort" atmosphere. What a rip-off.

We were at the Daisy May on the busy July long weekend. The place was packed with both campers and mosquitos! There had been some flooding around this area this spring and this has led to a mosquito invasion. Bring repellant! Our site was a decent size but it had no gravel base, just grass and it backed right onto another site. We found the roads narrow and we had some trouble backing into our site. The playground was a big hit with our kids and the ice cream sold in the store was a real treat. This park has huge potential, however the place is full of half finished projects. There is an unfinished log cabin and some sort of meeting area that obviously haven't been worked on for a long time. The miniature golf course was in desperate need of attention, the arcade building was unfinished, and the pool area was rather shabby. This campground needs a crew to come in and finish up the buildings, patch up the potholes, and give the place a good cleaning and paint job. After a few weeks of hard work, this could become quite a nice destination. It has a very convenient location right in the town of Fort Macleod which has great history. It is also only about 20 minutes to Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump which is an absolute must to see.

We really enjoyed our stay at this campground. We have 3 kids under 10 and the waterpark was just perfect for them. Safe and shallow and not terribly busy even during the hot afternoon. The kids also liked feeding the chickens and renting the pedal bikes. The nightly entertainment was terrific and the pancake breakfast was delicious. We arrived in time for the July 4th fireworks display put on by the employees which was really well done. WiFi was inconsistent during our stay. The roads are gravel and really need to be paved. Potholes filled with water when it rained and the roads stayed muddy for days afterwards. The interior roads are tight and we saw several big units have difficulty getting in and out of their sites. We have a 35 foot fifth wheel but we were ok as we had one of the wider sites. Some sites are quite narrow and have a slope to them. Like most KOA's, this place is not cheap especially when paying for extra kids and a pet. However, if you have kids and are planning on staying for a few days, then this place is worth the extra money.

We stayed at this park for a week during Spring Break. We loved this campground! Beautiful grand old trees with plenty of green space. Sites are large with lots of room for us to spread out. We were a little disappointed the pool was still closed despite the warm temperatures but the kids enjoyed the playgrounds. Park is about a 20 minute drive from Disneyland or Newport Beach. There is a good selection of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. We could not get any TV reception at all but Wi-Fi was available in the lounge area. The only major drawback we found was the freeway noise. There is a constant hum of traffic that never stops. We got used to it after a few days though. This campground is an excellent alternative to the parking lot type parks located next to Disneyland. We hope to return someday.

This is a newer RV park and the owners have obviously put a great deal of thought and money into it. Sites are paved with grass in between. We stayed in a premium site which gave extra room between units. We found the managers to be very friendly and helpful. The pool was still closed but the kids enjoyed the playground. The park is close to the freeway which is allows for easy access to the interstate. However, this also means that there is considerable road noise. There is also an airport nearby. Although our kids had fun watching the planes come in, there was some noise from the airplanes. However, despite the noise, the park is very clean and secure and we would definitely return as either a stop over or as a base when exploring Salt Lake City.

We used this park as an overnight stop. It has convenient access off the interstate and is just 30 miles inside the US border. There is noise from the interstate traffic. Sites are all parallel parking along either side of 2 loop roads. As we camped here in early April there was no water available at the sites. However, there was water available in the shower house. Once we phoned ahead and told the owner we would be coming in late, he happily said he would wait up for us. Once we arrived, he pulled out maps and helped us find alternate routes for us to avoid the snow covered mountain passes. Great service! Not a lot to do in the campground itself but we will certainly return whenever we need a stop over.

We did not like this RV park at all. Tightly crammed gravel sites. Sites are short with units parked back to back. Lots of long term residents. We ended up in the overflow area which was an adjacent gravel parking lot. No picnic table or sewer hook ups. Couldn't get Wi-Fi either. Paid $40 for this! At least we didn't have to unhook for the overnight stopover. We will not return.

We stayed here in January with about 20 other units. Electrical hook ups were available and the washrooms were open. Plenty of snow around but the roads were plowed. The view from the campground is incredible. Downtown Banff has a parking shortage at any time of the year so catching the local bus is your best option. There is a bus stop right by the campground and the bus will take you downtown to the restaurants and shopping on Banff Avenue or up to the Hot Springs for a warm soak.

We stayed at Mt. Kidd for 3 weekends this winter. Yes, the park is open during the winter season. There are several loops open with electric hook ups only. Washrooms are only located in the Camper's Center but are accessible 24 hours a day. Showers, laundry, hot tubs, store, and lounge are all still in operation. The scenery is even more spectacular in the winter months and the view from the hot tubs is incredible. Use caution when walking though. The sites and pathways can be quite icy.

We stayed at Radium Valley Vacation Resort over the Easter Break. Lots of things for the kids to do, indoor pool, games room, 2 playgrounds, etc. The staff also held an Easter Egg hunt complete with prizes and ice cream. Some of the sites are located overlooking a ravine. Beautiful views but would be unsuitable for families with small children. No fire pits at sites. There is a communal one near the recreation center although it hadn't been cleaned up for use since last fall and there was no firewood around. We will stay here again.
