Merritt Trading Post and Resort, more like a fishing camp than "resort", has a special importance to the Merritt Reservoir camping area because it is the only facility of any sort whatsoever for 28 miles, Valentine Nebraska being the nearest city. Merritt Trading Post & Resort has 15 nice cabins and 6 full hookup (30 amp) RV sites available on site as well as a fully stocked general store and fuel station with gas & diesel. The management is helpful and friendly and they offer a variety of activities including swimming and fishing with boat rentals. There are many camping facilities in the area and the Merritt Trading Post & Resort cheerfully offers its support to all travelers alike. If you're headed to Merritt Reservoir for some fishing or camping fun be sure to visit the Merritt Trading Post & Resort.
What a nice quiet RV park. Osen's is like the gateway to Yellowstone. If you're headed south into the park you can take care of shopping for provisions and such in Livingston and when you're ready to go its just 55 minutes to Gardiner. Spaces are typically the preferred roomier 30 foot spacing instead of the sandwich style 20 foot sites found in so many RV parks today. The staff is friendly and helpful and they maintain the park beautifully. Plenty of pull through sites and big rig friendly. If you find yourself in Livingston don't pass up a friendly visit to this RV park.
Most of the sites are so narrow that your picnic table is sandwiched between your RV and your neighbors sewer connection. There are fire pit rings but you'd be so close to your neighbor's RV you'd set their rig on fire, so there's really no room for camp fires. There are very few trees so be prepared to bake. The property next door is a go-kart race park, so if you like the sounds of little race carts all day long this is the place for you. They advertize Good Sam but on site they won't give Good Sam discounts "during events". Whistler is a typical RV Park that attempts to squeeze every nickle out of their land at the expense of charm and atmosphere. It should be reworked to about 80 sites and a new management attitude. We camped here in a class A motorhome.
This is my first 10 rating because this RV Park is the perfect example of what all top shelf parks should aspire to. Natural beauty combined with relentless landscaping all supported by cheerful helpful staff committed to making your stay more enjoyable. The office store has lots of handy items that you may need from canned goods to mailing your letters. Activities range from fishing to afternoon naps. If you've never stayed in a really nice camp ground before, then spoil yourself and make reservations to visit this KOA. We'll be back next year for sure.
This a nice RV facility. Some of the spaces are a little tight for big rigs over 40 feet but still doable (we are 41 feet). Kids activities are wonderful. Office store has list of stuff you may need. They make fresh beignets and coffee for breakfast, yum. Separate areas for RV and tent camping which is nice. They also have small cabins for rent. Clean and charming. The staff is pleasant and very helpful. The grounds maintenance is mostly very nice, like the owners really care. For short stays or long I'd recommend this KOA. I'd have given this a 10 if the spaces were larger and turns in the RV section were made a bit wider for larger RV's. Make reservations and pack marshmallows.
This is a nice RV park and located next to Lazy Days gigantic RV Sales & Service center which is really handy. Also: close to Camping World, two truck stops with diesel and best of all Cracker Barrel. The staff is cheerful AND helpful and go the extra mile to make your stay pleasant. We're repeat visitors and would recommend this RV park any time, particularly if you need RV service. The folks at Lazy days will not let you down. Big rigs or small (we are 41 feet), everyone fits at Lazy Days.
Nice place to visit. Most of the park has sites in forested tree canopy. Staff were cheerful and helpful. Would have given the place a 10 if they had a laundry. Suitable for tents to big rigs. Easy in easy out. We stayed here in a 41 ft class A. Site maintenance was very good and had the appearance that someone cares. Flower gardens were beautiful. If you are looking for a nice family place to camp, this is it. Make reservations if possible.
Staff act like they hate their jobs. Soda machine busted and unplugged. Turns have posts, signs and rocks placed at the edges of turns that make it unnecessarily difficult for big rigs to corner. Signs posted 5.5 MPH and if you do 6 Deputy Dog will find you and bitch you out but good. Landscaping all appears like nobody cares unless it's a space with a long term resident. And if you depart late, there is a fee. Is the place a bad stay? No. But it could be a poster child for how to run an RV park badly and discourage repeat visits.
