We stayed here off-season and had the place to ourselves. It is gorgeous. It has clean and secure restrooms/showers. Not at all what I expected at a State Park. The main reason that I am posting this review is to warn others about the rocks. Before we stayed there, I read a review about the park where someone mentioned that they had to move boulders to get through. I can see this to be true now. The park is pretty tight and the addition of decorative rock to the landscape has made it almost treacherous in spots. Be sure to scout your spot before entering. We had a very close call when trying to park at one spot, and I did end up taking a crowbar to move a gigantic rock out of the way of our tires. The rocks appear to be a barrier of sorts but they can cause a lot of damage. We met the ranger on duty and he was very friendly. The park is a bit of a drive from the highway, 9+ miles, but if you want scenery and recreation, this is your spot! Very nice, clean campground.

We stayed here for one week at the end of Nov-Dec. The after hours check in consists of a map with site info marked in grease pencil (available, problems, taken, etc. We found that the info was not totally accurate. We found a full hookup site that had 50 amp and proceeded. According to the map, it was the only one available. There was a lit Christmas tree plugged into the power at the site and the tree was literally on a picnic table right at the utilities for that spot. We decided to look around the camp and found many open spaces in the "new" section. This is a first come first serve place, so we took the one that was next to a site that was reported to have no power. We had no problems with the power and someone hooked up the same day and was able to use the supposedly non-working power with no problem. The sites are packed stone, but wide and easy to get in an out of. Be aware that this FAMCAMP backs up against base housing- if you're in the back row of large pull-thrus you are literally staring into the backyards and even windows of base housing. There is a large dog in one of those backyards that barks a lot and loudly. There were also kids bouncing on a trampoline and frequent foot/bicycle traffic into housing. It was an OK park; I'd recommend it for the price. The gates are super-tight to get into base, but manageable.

Easy after hours check in. Sites were level, gravel. Power was good. Restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. This park is pretty barren, ok for an overnight. Right next to busy highway with lots of noise. A reviewer states that the park you have to pass on the way looks better: no way. If you have to stop in Rawlins, this is the best park by far. We didn't have any interaction with staff, but when they passed, we got a wave and a smile. Nice for a place to stop in the middle of nowhere, but not a vacation spot.

This is our 2nd time staying at this KOA and it is the only place I would stay when in Vegas. Based on my past experiences at hotels in this town, I seriously will only come here if I've got my trailer. They have good discounts for military, police, firefighters and others and the staff is wonderful. The sites are basically in a parking lot, but that makes them level and with a lack of dirt and dust. The water pressure was good with a regulator, power good too. Well stocked store and again, very helpful and friendly staff. I love this place! We stayed for 3 days while visiting Vegas and had no issues. I did have a concern regarding security that I didn't realize the first time we stayed. One of my neighbors was approached by a man who was trying to sell "diamonds" while they were hooking up. It made me realize that there really isn't anything keeping the large population of transient people in the area from entering the park. I didn't see any non-patrons milling around, but locking and securing your rig and vehicles is imperative. This is a quiet park with friendly staff and great amenities. It is very easy to maneuver and access from the highways.

Decent KOA, fairly easy access. We had a quick overnight stop and it was sufficient for that purpose. The host (??) was friendly and very nice. She was younger and seemed like a manager. I'm not sure what her role was, but she was friendly. There is a lot of noise from the highway, this is not a vacation-type spot. The store was pretty bare, but had some decent route 66 souvenirs. There was a woman working in the store who was less than friendly, and I remember feeling a bit uncomfortable while looking around. Water pressure was good, power good. The pull-through sites don't have any privacy and I felt very much "on-display" when I stepped out in the morning. Not sure if there are long term people here, but there was an older man who sat outside his RV from sunrise til we left, who just glared at us. It was a well maintained KOA and we would stay again if we were driving through.

We tried to stay here one night on our way home from a cross country trip. We have been viewing the website for several months and decided that it looked like a great "resort" type park that we would enjoy. The website makes the park look amazing, but we found it a bit disappointing when we arrived. The after hours check in process is helpful, envelopes are prepared for the sites that are available. We have a 40+ foot rig and based on what we read online, it seemed as though we would have no problem finding a spot. We were wrong. We walked around to look at the available sites and it became apparent that we wouldn't be able to get out if we parked. We looked at the "super premium"(end sites about $89-90+) sites and they were large enough to fit in but, again, we wouldn't be able to get out. I don't know how anyone gets in and out of here. There was a large rig parked at an end site that had absolutely no room to leave because of the adjacent RVs and vehicles that were parked. It was very odd. We ended up leaving because of the lack of space. The overly expensive supposedly "luxury" sites have a bbq grill and better manicured grass, but that seems to be about it. I wouldn't pay that price just to have a grill and and end spot that leaves you stuck when the park fills. Very disappointed and felt that the website is very misleading. The grounds are well maintained and very cute, but that's about it. For the price, I would expect more space and/or privacy.

We stayed here while TDY (temporary deployment year). No water in winter, but the showers and restrooms are clean, bright and warm! I don't understand how people can complain about the facilities here: they were great. We found the site to be quiet, level and it had great power. I can see how it might get tight when full, but it has easy access and lots of room to drive through. I love that this famcamp is in a quiet, secluded location. Big bonus is the herd of antelope who are permanent residents. We have a 40+ foot rig and found the camp easy to maneuver. The sites are gravel and have "islands" of grass with small trees in places. This is a great famcamp on a beautiful, historic base.

We chose to stay here because of the year round full hook up capability. It was dipping into the teens when we arrived and we were sad to find that our site's heat tape on the water had failed and we were not able to have water. It was a fluke thing, all other sites had water. We just couldn't fit in any that were available. Bummer. The camp hosts/managers were amazing. The best I've met, very friendly and understanding of our issue. I was very impressed with their professionalism and genuine concern. We stayed one night and were not charged due to the water issue. If I'm ever in Cheyenne again, I would love to see the park in the summer. It's cute and looks fun for the kids. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were immaculate despite a lot of use. This park is definitely one of the friendliest I've been at. Thanks so much!
