After traveling for 2,000 miles it was nice to spend a few days in a park that had level sites and space between sites. I'm not sure what site the previous reviewer stayed in but there is plenty of grass between sites, and we enjoyed that. The procedure is to find an empty site, and then go to the cashier's window and pay-pretty simple. If you don't like your site-your bad.
Sites are not level and very rocky. Side by side hookups. Sewer is elevated and hard to discharge tanks. Sites are very close together. Shore power and water are located where I needed to use an extra 25ft of sewer and power cord. We wanted to stay away from construction in Salt Lake city while heading north and chose this park as an alternate route. Will probably drive further north and not stay here again. I never understand why RV parks can't spend some time trying to level their sites.
This is our second stay at Portal. Our last stay was two years ago, and we noticed the improvements immediately upon our arrival. Although we stayed in the resort (south side) we noticed the improvements for the RV side of the park. The roads have been improved and the weeds/grass are gone. The staff is very friendly and they want everyone to enjoy their stay. The park was pretty full the two nights we were there. Kudos to the staff for making our stay enjoyable.
Nicest RV park in the Denver area. Side by side hookups so you are close to your neighbor on one side. Some sites where the sewer connection is uphill. Some sites are level, others are not. I have never understood how you can pour a concrete pad and "not" make it level. Nice amenities with pool, hot tub, laundry, exercise room. Extra charge for 50 amp seemed unreasonable. Pads are narrow and some with rather severe drop offs which can damage your tires if you aren't careful pulling in.
This is a wonderful park with large sites and plenty of grassy area between sites. The owner and staff take a great deal of pride in keeping the park clean and beautiful. Only one mile to Ennis, so you can walk or ride your bike to town. Wi-Fi worked extremely well during our stay of two months. Only TV stations were PBS stations and they were hit or miss. Weather can be a bit interesting with high winds occasionally. We will stay here again in the future.
This is great park for exploring Glacier NP. We especially enjoyed the made to order pies and all the other fresh baked goods from the office. Washers and driers worked well. Management is attentive to it's guests. Three weeks went by too fast. And yes, trees prevent any satellite reception but we were able to pick up all the major networks with a signal booster.
This was an encore stay for us. We had a nice long and wide pull thru w/50 amp service, water and sewer. We had a little more time this trip and made a side excursion to Gem Mountain to screen for sapphires. Showers were very clean and the water was hot. We'll stay here again if our travels bring us this way.
Pros: The sites are fairly level. Park is close to shopping: Starbucks, Safeway, Target, Costco and Home Depot. Centrally located to Seattle and the Olympic Pennisula. The staff and management are extremely friendly and helpful. Laundry has good washers and dryers. Cons: Gig Harbor Sportsman's Club is next door, so you hear gunfire until sundown. The park is on a steep hill and sites are terraced. Your exit route from your site is normally going uphill. It is quite exciting to leave your site and go up a 10-12 degree road, first thing. There is a toll bridge over the Tacoma Narrows and currently highway construction on I-5 & Hwy16 from Seattle. We stayed here to do our siteseeing. If we are ever back in the area, we would stay again.
As stated in the earlier review, there is no Verizon phone service available. From what we noticed in the week we were in the Canon City area, this park is by far the best. The manager was constantly working in the park making improvements. Depending on your site, a minimal amount of leveling may be required. There are so many things to do around Canon City (don't miss the gold mine in Cripple Creek) we were sad to cut our visit short in order to move onto Fruita, CO to have cell phone service (wife still works). We would definitely stay at Royal View when in the area again.
The rate listed is the monthly rate + electric. A very nice park with large pads that are gravel with a concrete entrance/parking area. The office has a small camping world parts inventory with very reasonable prices. The park has quite a few long term residents around the perimeter with back in sites and the interior pull thru sites are for short term visitors. The park was full most of our two month stay, so I would call ahead for availability. They were recently listed as one of the top 100 Good Sam Parks.
This is a golf course resort area and most of the sites are owned by folks that enjoy unlimited golf during the summer. Sites available to others are not level and I needed to use 50+ Lynx levelers to level the coach. Sites are long but not very wide and trees prevented the use of our awning. We looked at the showers and rest rooms and decided to use our own. They allow you to wash your rig, which was a plus. We used our Coast to Coast points earned by using the Good Sam Visa card. This would be an OK place for just a night or two. We stayed here for a week, just because it didn't cost anything.
A fairly nice park with easy highway access. Large pull-throughs with sites back to back. We stayed here for a week and had problems with low voltage the first few nights do to the park being full. Voltage improved as the sites thinned out. A local train is right next to the park but didn't make much noise as it passed (no whistles-just rumbling). Didn't use the restrooms or laundry. Will probably stay closer to Deer Lodge next time. There is no local grocery store or gas station in the area (10 miles away in Deer Lodge).
Paved interior roads with gravel or grass sites. Mixed usage with mobile homes and long term residents and RV sites. They do permit washing your rig and encourage watering the grass. Our site was relatively level and on grass. The restrooms and showers need a lot of updating, possibly tearing them down and starting new. Kalispell has ample shopping, even a Wal-Mart, so groceries are reasonable. Would probably stay here again, despite the showers.
We stayed here one night passing through to Glacier National Park. We requested 50 amp but the voltage was not adequate. Turns were a little tight for a 40ft 5th wheel but manageable. Didn't use the showers or rest rooms. Laundry was adequate. Will probably find another park for overnight next time in the area.
A nice park with friendly staff and escort to site. Gravel interior roads and sites with some leveling required due to being built on a hill. We only stayed one night but would stay again to visit the historical sites in the area. Restrooms and showers were extremely clean. Would have rated the park a 10 if the sites were level.
The interior roads and sites are gravel. The park is nestled in a forest and we were unable to use our awning due to the pine trees. Ours and most of the other sites are not level. We needed to use all 50 of my Lynx levelers to level our 5th wheel. Rest rooms and showers were very clean most of the time. Power and water were stable and constant. Local grocery prices were high, so we will probably stay somewhere closer to Rapid City next time we are in the area.
As stated earlier this is a "premier" park. The wide interior roads are all paved with the RV sites being gravel, but level. You are allowed to wash your rig, which is probably why the sites are gravel. We stayed in the newer section with concrete patios and walkways and ample parking for your tow vehicle. The restrooms and showers were all immaculate with lots of hot water.The park is landscaped with shade in the older section. Management and staff are attentive to your needs. As stated earlier make reservations as the park was full almost every night of our stay (27 nights).The local sales taxes are about 10%, so your Good Sam discount cancels out the local sales taxes. We used our Verizon air card so cannot comment on the Wi-Fi. We will stay here every time we are in the area.
