Restroom was dirty! Access to many sites is not easy, particularly in a large rig. Be careful not to park in one of the sites the host said are "Sand Traps", that is, if you can find the host. 30A electric and well water with lots of minerals. Pets are allowed to roam so watch where you step. Dump available, but bring your own hose. It was quiet and shaded. $10 rate was with Passport America.

Deep & shaded sites w/ 50A or 30A electric, picnic table & fire ring. Water spigots located throughout the park. Dump about 1 mile away. $8 w/ Golden Age. ($2 more for lakefront premium site.) Clean restrooms & showers. Sites are reservable Memorial Day through Labor Day, then first-come, first-serve. Park open mid-April thru at least October. Easy access to fishing & visitor center.

Great campground to use as a base to see all the Black Hills attractions! Lots of wildlife in the area! Campground is clean (with restrooms with flush toilets), quiet, and easily accessible via paved roads. Campground is 1 mile from the Wind Cave National Park visitor center. Nightly ranger programs throughout the summer. At least 20 sites will accommodate big rigs. (One site is 75' long!) Mostly pull-throughs; some back-ins. No electric, sewer or showers. Those services are available in nearby towns. Sites are first come, first served, but the host says the campground has never been full. $12 per night; 1/2 price for holders of Federal Senior (Golden Age) or Disability (Golden Access) passes. Campground is open all year; during winter the water is turned off, but there are pit toilets and fee is $6 (1/2 price for pass holders listed above.)

Wide open spaces, with afternoon winds. Regular rate is $32 (we stayed at AOR rate.) Lots of washers & dryers for low cost. Good wi-fi. Nearest town with services is Pinedale - 7 miles north. OK base to explore area.

All pull-through sites. 50A costs a little more. Laundry, small clubhouse & clean restrooms. Nice staff held ice cream socials a couple of times a week. Only drawback - Wi-Fi signal was marginal. Hot Springs pool is less than a mile away in town. Several restaurants and a small (and pricey) grocery in town. On the edge of the National Forest, there's access to fishing, hiking, and scenic drives. Also several museums nearby.

This park is "tired" - grass/weeds needed mowing; picnic tables were wobbly and in dire need of paint. Most of the back-in sites won't handle rigs over 32'; pull-through sites are $3 more. The park is adjacent to the Fairmont Resort, which has the hot springs pools, golf course, and mini-golf (all for an additional fees.) Access to the resort facilities is about the only reason to stay at the Fairmont RV Park.

Sites 'on the hill' are the largest; that area is usually only open January - mid-April. Older sections (closer to clubhouse) have much shorter and narrower sites. Pool is warm spring fed, and well-maintained. Nice clubhouse. Activities are offered when there are a lot of visitors. Roads are not well-maintained, picnic tables are old with peeling paint. Wi-Fi signal was marginal. The park needs some major maintenance and upgrades. We may stay here again.

Owners are very nice. The park is neat and clean. Grass at most sites. Excellent Wi-Fi. No TV reception via antenna and no cable TV option, but good satellite reception. Park is close to everything in town. There are several excellent historical museums. Very nice paved walkway along the Missouri River. City swimming pool is open in the summer. Rafting, canoeing and fishing is only 5 blocks from the park. Convenient to Great Falls, Havre, and mountains to the south. We will stay here again when we pass through this area.

Very long, very wide sites. Park is in the desert, so sites are gravel. A few trees and mostly native shrubs. Rate shown was with Passport America. Very nice staff! Small convenience store. Town is about 5 miles away. Museum nearby; near birding area. We were there after a very cold winter, which froze the hot tub valves. We experienced very high winds and blowing dirt, which are fairly common in this area of NM. We will return!

This summer's management is making the effort to clean things up and restore this park's high ratings. There are 3 sections - one with grass and trees; the Arizona section, with rocks, a few trees, and long, wide and level sites; the Wilderness section, camping along the river with trees and brush (primitive). Nice pool (though it is not Olympic-sized, as advertised). Big adult recreation room with books, puzzles, big-screen TV, movies and pool table. Kids game area and playground. Big, clean laundry room. Wi-Fi was not working in our section of the park most of the 2 weeks we were there. No resort sponsored activities. Lots of traffic noise, as campground is adjacent to the main highway. Plenty to see and do in the immediate area, and within a couple hours drive.

This park has been recently refurbished. Wide, level, gravel sites with picnic table and fire pit in either full sun or shade. Half the sites have 30A electric available (for $30/nt). Boat launch. Nice manager and staff. Small convenience store. No water or dump available, so arrive with full water and empty holding tanks. Wish they sold fishing licenses here. Very relaxing. We would stay here again. They do take reservations - which would be necessary during the height of fishing season.

We phoned for reservations after reviewing their website. We specifically requested 30A with water for 4 nights and were confirmed, but given the 15A rate! When we questioned the rate posted on the website, we were told that was last year's webpage and they have not raised their rates. We again confirmed 30A at $29/night. That was confirmed. After we arrived, and paid (cash only: no refunds) we were given a map (same as that on the website) with color coding for the 30A site we had reserved. When we got to the site, their was only 15A service. Returning to the office to find out where the 30A sites were, we were told that the map was wrong and there were no 30A sites available. But we could get a full-service site (which we did not want nor need) for only $7 more per night! Their office staff is certainly friendly, but I am not fond of "bait and switch." Had we been told that there were no 30A sites available for 4 nights when we called for reservations, we would have selected a different campground. Be warned, the map is wrong! I doubt if we will ever stay here again, due to the poor reservation practices.

Chose a site for it's view of the lake, which had 20A service and water. (There are a few 30A sites for extra cost.) Dump station, showers & laundry are available. Park is adjacent to metal grated suspension bridge, so hear vehicle noise all night. Earplugs are recommended. 4 cent per liter discount on fuel for campers. Restaurant had a good variety with fairly reasonable prices. Adjacent Wildlife Gallery is very well done. Also recommend the Tlingit Heritage Center. We would stay here again.

Alberta Campground Guide shows a "dry-camp" rate which we requested. They said all sites have electricity (if you have a long enough extension cord!) and charged that (higher) rate. Electric did NOT work at our site!!! NO REFUND. We do not recommend, nor would we stay here again.

We called ahead for reservations. The owner, greeted us, gave concise directions for backing into the site, then gave us a bowl of Dungeness crab for lunch! She was very friendly, and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had all the info we needed to enjoy the area. Clean restrooms, showers, and laundry. CG has an unobstructed view of the small boat harbor and the bay, with picnic tables set up to take full advantage of the view. We would recommend this CG and would stay here again.

Big rig friendly. Some shade. Nice space between sites. There was a free RV wash (cold water, but it helped get the muck of the Cassiar Hwy off the rig.) Shower & toilet room was in bad shape. There was a restaurant, but there wasn't enough staff to open for dinner. We would stay here again.

Park is along the highway, so there's truck noise all night. Sites are in one long row, alternating direction, with very little room between slideouts. FHU; Wi-Fi only worked intermittently. Worked for a one-night stop, to dump and take on water.

Water & electric hadn't been turned on yet, so we only paid $4 to dry camp. Roomy sites on grass. Big rig friendly. Nearby Hazelton Visitor Center gave us good info about First Nations totem poles in area.

Beautiful view of the lake. Park had just opened and everything was being painted. Sites were raked and firepits & pit toilets were clean. We found several sites that would hold our 36' 5th wheel and big truck. Nice campground host collected fee.

Nice staff. Clean facilities. We arrived on a weekend, without reservations, and we got the last site. (Reservations are recommended here.) Strong Wi-Fi signal. View of lake. Nice playground. Only drawbacks - traffic noise from the adjacent Hwy 43 Bypass, and the transients who sleep by the lake and come into the campground to steal things.

Nice location along the river, and nice owner. There was a lot of maneuvering room. Power is generated on-site. We had a 15A electric site - with only 100 volts. (Campers with expensive electronics beware.) There was a nice playground area, and a small convenience store. Nicest RV park along the stretch of road between Fort Nelson and Dawson Creek.

Nice manager. We had a wide back-in site with FHU. Walking distance to Signpost Forest, Visitor Center, and Northern Lights Center. Best part was the barbecue dinner. Really good food for a very reasonable price.

We chose a dry-camp site; electric sites cost $15 - $20 more. Paved road to the park, but narrow dirt road to sites. (Be sure to emphasize how large your rig is and how much room you need to maneuver when making reservations, and again upon check-in.) Sites are in the trees, so there's lots of shade. Hot springs pool is great! Campers get a discount on the pool fee. Quiet location.

This park is now open to the public! (Public rate is double the military rate.) New section with wide, level gravel sites and electric hookups (20/30/50A), with trees between each site. Water pump near entrance. Dump available. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. (The older part of the park needs a lot of upgrades.) Park was quiet. Brochure rates are higher than the rates posted on the fee payment post. We were there early in the season, so may have been charged a lower seasonal rate. The park is about 5 miles from town. We would recommend this park and would stay here again.

Best thing about the park is it's proximity to downtown Anchorage. Sites had sufficient room for slideouts. There were very few sites that would hold our 36' 5th wheel and truck. (Pull-through sites weren't long enough plus they wanted $18 more for a pull-through site.) Train tracks are just the other side of the fence, and trains run day and night. Earplugs are a must!

This state recreation area has recently been refurbished, and is now really nice! All the sites were wide, level, gravel back-ins, separated by grass. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit. One loop is along the river, the other loop is in the trees. Power is available at about half the sites (double the cost of dry sites). Main activity here is fishing, and there's a boat launch area. On-site management with nice staff and small convenience store. Arrive with RV tank full of water and gray & black tanks empty, as there is no water available, nor is there a dump site. We would stay here again.

Very nice staff. Showers cleaned after each use. Showers, restrooms, and laundry area squeaky clean. RV parking area is a big gravel lot. Sites were fairly level, but less than 40' long. Park wasn't busy, so every other site was empty (and we were allowed to park our truck in an adjacent site). Dump station and water fill available.

Just a parking lot. RV area doesn't have room for rigs longer than 30', but they allowed us to park along the perimeter. Very noisy and congested until 10 pm when the park closes. Then, noise from the highway all night. There is a fresh water filling station. We would not stay here again.

Quiet provincial park on Kluane Lake. One loop in the pine trees, the other loop along the lake. Lots of shade available. Pit toilets were clean. Water pump available, though sign said to boil the water. Big rig friendly, with some pull-thru sites. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit. Fire pits and sites were clean. We would recommend this park and will stay here again.

South of Haines Jct, about halfway to Haines, AK. 1 mile dirt road to CG. No CG map. Big rig friendly sites are on inner loop of CG. Early in season, so pit toilets & fire pits were still clean. Primitive campground with no other facilities. Nice trail to view the falls, and fishing in the stream. Nice, quiet place.

RVs are parked from both directions. If full, you'd have to coordinate with your neighbor to see which one of you gets to put out your slides. Got a 3 cent per liter discount on fuel - which did little to dent the exorbitant fuel price. Nice staff. Rates higher than advertised. We would not stay here again.

Sites aren't level. Pool wasn't open. Spring had sprung and the trees were releasing pods with sticky sap that left a mess on RV and shoes. Big rig friendly. Nice campground hosts. Iron in water, so even with cold water wash clothes turned orange in laundry.

This was the filthiest park we have ever been in. Mostly full-time residents in derelict RVs. Out of 16 sites, only 2 were available. Sewer did not drain properly. Only positive was the large laundry facility. If we didn't need to do laundry, we would not have stayed. Their (old) ad on the Alaska Campground Owners Assn website indicates they're making improvements, but we saw none. We would not camp here again, nor would we recommend it to anyone.

Laundry is $5 per load. Pay at the office. We had a long back-in overlooking the lake and watched mom mallard teaching her 3 ducklings about diving for food. We would stay here again. Rate is with Good Sam discount.

This campground is CLOSED. Roadside sign approaching from the North says "OPEN," but rounding the corner you can see fence and barrels blocking both driveways. We continued a few miles to Toad River Lodge.

Manager greeted us as soon as we pulled in. Very friendly and helpful. Even though the park was not in our new Passport America Book, they gave us the Passport rate. New owner/management. Cable TV is coming. Restrooms and showers are in the works. Level sites all gravel. Next door to the grocery store in town.

I enjoyed the Philly Cheese steak. Most sites are filled with permanent residents. We parked next to an old travel trailer with an ATTACHED carport! Only 3 sites for travelers. Friendly staff.

Follow the directions on the website or you'll get lost. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. They are working hard to update the park. Pool was closed for the season. Wi-Fi didn't work well at our rig, but there's a desk in the laundry room where we got good Wi-Fi. A bit pricey for what you get, but that's common with KOAs. Host leads you to your site, and makes sure you get parked OK. Not a lot of room between sites. (It wasn't crowded when we were there, so it was OK.)

Only park available in Longmont-Boulder area. 'Big rigs' will only fit in one row with 10 sites, so be sure to call for a reservation. 'Big rig' sites are about 50' long. May have to park tow vehicle and/or towed vehicle in adjacent parking area. There's some shade in the sites for smaller rigs and/or tents. Bathrooms are clean. Water and electricity available at each site; dump station requires a bit of maneuvering. Beware when camping when it's wet! Sites are not well-graveled, and become a slimy, muddy mess! Far enough off major roads that it's not too noisy. Shopping center nearby (walking distance.) Lots of activities (horse shows, etc) at the fairgrounds throughout the year, so it's a good idea to call for reservations.

Great place to camp! Quiet and clean! Shade or full sun sites available. Tents only in Loop A; Tents or small Class Bs or Class Cs in Loop C. 16 sites for larger rigs in Loops A and D. (May need leveling blocks for front-to-back and side-to-side.) Most big rig sites are pull-throughs. Our rig is 70' with truck, trailer and jeep, and we would fit in 10 of the sites with no problems. Water spigots (good tasting water) available every 6 or so sites. Fill up before parking. No electricity. Nearest RV dumps (and groceries) in Hot Springs (15 mi. South) or Custer (30 mi. North). Generator hours 8 am to 8 pm. Most 'big rig' sites are not shaded. Shade available at most other sites. Clean bathrooms with flush toilets and sink during summer season. Camper sink in each loop, for dish washing. During winter, only B Loop is open - with pit toilets. Campground well maintained. Easy access to hiking. Less than 2 mi. to Visitor Center with daily cave tours. Lots of wildlife and wildflowers! Great place to kick back and relax. Wi-Fi may be available by Visitor Center. Phone service (except AT&T) is available along main highway, but not in campground. Nightly ranger programs at the campground during the summer.
