Staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall atmosphere was pleasant. Several miles from I-15, so there is no highway noise. We paid the weekly rate. Easy access to all the shops and great restaurants in Provo and surrounds. Good base for day trips into Wasatch Mountains. Utah Lake State Park is an easy walk down the street. The campground has lots of trees. We were able to use our satellite internet (tripod) by getting an end space near the road, though even this space was still tricky. Sites are very close together and all have side-by-side hookups. Don't count on having a lot of space. Had the park been full, we probably wouldn't have stayed here with our 37-foot fifth wheel. About 30% to 40% of the rigs are long-term, but it's not a problem as the park has strict rules against shabby appearances. Not our favorite kind of park, but would stay here again the off season.

Very well designed park in a lovely desert setting in Utah's color country. Sites are widely spaced so that even if the park were full it would not feel crowded. This campground is new within the past two years and is a standout among state parks. The on-site sewer hookups are all operational now. Easy big rig access. Sites up on the hill have a chance for a lake view, depending on whether the site across from yours is occupied or not. The views of surrounding hills are nice, and some of the sunsets were terrific. We used this park as a base for day trips to Zion (about 30 miles) and the beautiful Snow Canyon State Park (about 20 miles). No trees anywhere in the park, which could be a drawback in hot weather. There are some fairly regular day-use people who fly radio-controlled model airplanes from the parking lot near the lake. The planes pass over the campground, creating wining noise for several hours most days. We didn't find it difficult to tune out. The OHV area is across the lake, so it's not a factor in noise. The entire park itself is set several miles back from I-15 and Utah-9. No trains, either. There are a new subdivision and golf course going in right next to the park, which will negatively impact traffic and night-time stargazing within the next year. The staff were friendly and helpful. We greatly enjoyed our stay here.

Park would have been extremely tight with our 37' fifth wheel had it been full, but it late September is was only 1/4 full so we had adequate maneuvering room and it was actually quite pleasant. Our Verizon cell phones had just one bar of signal but did work within the park. No problem finding our satellite between the trees with our tripod-mounted internet system. Staff was courteous. Would stay here again but only in off-season with our size rig.

As noted, the only park actually in Jackson, which is the only reason they get the price they do. Staff was friendly and courteous. Good Verizon cell phone signal, no problem with satellite internet. Site spacing was OK in October with park at 1/3 capacity, otherwise it would be sardine can city. Had to park truck crossways in front of our 37' trailer. Big rig owners (and anyone else who likes space) should avoid this campground in season. Views of the surrounding hills are nice but campground itself isn't a visual treat, and could be downright discouraging if you happen to get placed next to the electrical substation.

The views of the hills and mountains are quite enjoyable. Staff is friendly and courteous. There are also a restaurant and lounge on-site which we did not try. Park is basically a large gravel lot with hookups. Sites are level but very narrowly spaced and short for larger rigs. This was OK with our 37' trailer as there were only two other rigs there in early October, but would be quite tight when the place is full. Had to park our truck beside the trailer. Good strong signal with Verizon cell phone; no trouble with our satellite internet. Good midway location for exploring both Cody and Yellowstone. Takes about 30 minutes to get to the Yellowstone east entrance. The scenery along the way on US-16 is gorgeous.

Owners are super-nice and helpful people. Park is close to town on US-16 but several miles from the interstates, so there is no highway noise. The view of the Big Horn foothills is lovely, and deer wandered through the property in the evening. Pull-throughs are long, grassy, and adequately wide; ours was very level. We had no problems at all with our satellite internet system. The web site photos don't show that part of the park is also a mobile home court with 20 or so somewhat ramshackle-looking single-wides. Noise from the permanent residents' vehicles leaving for work woke us up every morning. Park was quiet and peaceful otherwise. I wouldn't use this as a destination park, but it's serviceable enough if you aren't looking for anything especially pretty or fancy.
