Park has big, long pull throughs with almost level gravel. Good ATT, Verizon. Campground WiFi slow. Very dense trees and unable to get DirecTV. I felt the rate was high. Good water pressure and friendly helpful staff.

Park has nice landscaping, level graveled sites, trees but not big enough for shade, good water pressure, good signals on ATT, Verizon and DirecTV. Located about 8 miles from I-70 and was a little difficult to get to. It is behind a Super 8 Motel. There are signs directing you. OK for a night. Rate somewhat high for the area and lack of amenities. Some noise due to Air Force base, nearby train track and motel.

Close access to I-70 but not so close that you hear the noise. Roads to the campground and in it are dirt and dusty but hard packed and easy to drive on. Wi-Fi excellent signal, AT&T good signal. Had to share the same water connection with 2 others but not a problem. Rate is the Passport America price. Good overnight stop.

Definitely fill up your water tank before coming. Beautiful lake view, great price! Dusty roads. Turn at sign showing Saratoga Lake, sign showing campground far from road and easy to miss. At first fork in the road, take a left as no signage here. Road a little rough but just go slow. If you are lucky, get the sites at either end for electricity and you can park sideways instead of backing in, as in all the other sites. Very nice place.

Campground is right on the Snake River, although you can't see it. You won't find a better deal near Jackson with hookups. (Gros Ventre in the park is $20 a night with no hookups!) But this park only has 5 or 6 sites available, the others are permanent residents. The 3 or 4 pull throughs are big and easy to get in and out. There are 3 or 4 much smaller backins. Owners (the RV park and land are for sale if you want to own your own!) are very nice and helpful. The park WiFi was usually good. ATT cell excellent, Verizon poor. DirecTV good. The water pressure was low. So if you want a site here, best to get here midday when others checking out. No reservations taken.

Campground is way over priced but it is cheaper than most others in the area. Mostly level sites but some have dips and holes which make leveling hard. This is in no way a resort. The only amenity is free Wi-Fi, which worked well only sometimes. There is no pool, cable TV. There are some ponds but that hardly qualifies for a resort! Staff is friendly and mostly helpful. Close to West Yellowstone.

Really didn't like this campground! The good: it has trees, surrounding views, close to Bozeman. The bad: has narrow, unlevel sites with trees blocking slides, pool is constantly overflowing with local kids, lots of rules (including $1 a day per dog, $2 extra vehicle, $5 more for a pull through when the campground is 80% pull through sites, etc). I did get satellite coverage with Direct at 70%, very marginal ATT cell and fair Verizon air card. If I come back to this area, will stay south of Bozeman at the KOA right next to Bozeman Hot Springs. The Hot Springs are well worth a visit.

This park is very clean and has very nice landscaping. Owners are hard working, friendly and very helpful. Some of the sites have odd hookup arrangements (my steps were 5 feet from my neighbors sewer), but most are okay. Large drive areas with easy maneuvering and escort to site service. Didn't use WiFi but Verizon air card worked great, ATT cell service was bad, but it's bad everywhere in NW Montana. DirecTV service was good.

$20 seems high for no hookups or showers, BUT it is in the Glacier NP and close to great hiking so maybe worth it! Restrooms were very clean.

Great views and there are alot of sites with trees. The roads are all one way, so if you are camping on the left side of the road with an RV, your campsite is backwards. I pulled my 38 foot, fifth wheel in against the flow so I would be able to have steps and awning on the picnic table/fire pit side. Was chastised by the camp hosts as they said it would be a problem if an evacuation was necessary due to fire. Well, I'll take the chance! Take care when making reservations. I had reserved a 70 foot long site thinking I would have plenty of room. But some sites have lots of trees and others don't. My original side, although long, was very curved and the trees would have prohibited my slides or awning use. Some of the shorter sites with no trees actually have alot more usable room. The attendants at the gate were very helpful in arranging a move to a more suitable site. It was early enough in the season so there were plenty of vacancies.

It is way overpriced for basically parking lot camping. There are trees between the sites. You get water and sewer but no power?? There are power boxes here so I don't know what's up with that. It would be much greener to run electricity than to have noisy generators running gas all the time! But if you have a larger rig, your choices are limited if you want to see the park and not drive 100 miles a day.

No discounts on various RV cards, this park's sites are very large and level and easy to access. Driving northbound, the park is on the right, but there are no signs indicating that you are getting close. You can see the campers from a distance so start slowing down to make your turn. Good overnight stop, pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Did have good ATT and Verizon service.

Very clean and well kept park. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were very clean. Has nice big, level gravel sites with scattered trees. ATT and Verizon service was very good. Pool and spa were not yet open. Why don't these parks keep the hot tub open in the WINTER when you really want it?? Park staff was very friendly and helpful.

I have stayed in 4 different camps in Moab and this is my favorite. Big fairly level sites, great views, friendly owners, good free internet. Nice tables and concrete pads to walk on. But you are right on Hwy 191 and there is lots of road noise as trucks are still going fast before they hit town. Sometimes hard to even get on the highway due to the fast traffic. And you are up on a hill and get LOTS of high winds and dust. But still better than most in Moab. There is also lots of free dry camping all around the area in the back country, a good deal of it accessible by larger rigs. Cheap scenic camping all along the river.

A very clean, well kept campground. All RV sites are large and level and all the pull throughs had plenty of room to get in and out. There's a nice small pond with ducks, a good view of surrounding scenery, and a variety of animals in back. Each site has a picnic table, grill and a tree. Rate reflects weekly price. Had excellent ATT cell service and good Verizon internet card service. As noted with other reviews, stock up before coming here. You will have to go to Blanding, about 20 miles to get LP.

AWESOME views!! Pit toilets but nothing else. There are 4 picnic tables but an unlimited number of camping sites. I had great ATT cell service and weak Verizon internet. Mexican Hat is closest for fuel (including diesel) and there is a water spout at the Shell station. The nearest LP I could find was almost to Blanding (!) about 50 miles so come to camp on full! DO NOT try to take your rig up on UT 261 north!! It is 4 miles of mostly single lane, 10 per cent grade and very curvy. I did see an 18 wheeler going up it but it is illegal.

This is a nice park, especially for free! However during the winter, there is no water so be sure to fill your tanks before arriving. There was one water source in the picnic area but you will have to 'fill and haul' as it is 40 feet from the parking area. The campground had most of the loops closed and one restroom open. The website says only 40 foot or smaller but there were at least 3 sites that would accommodate larger. There is LOTS of local traffic coming in to 'hang out' and use the rest rooms and get water so beware. I talked to a maintain worker who said that they water is not turned back on until April. It was definitely a great place to camp for a few days if you are prepared. I went by the Spider Rock campground and it was very muddy due to the recent snows. No way I would take my rig in there!

A strange campground setup. Looks to be converted from a mobile home park. Sites very long and level. Also very narrow but it looks doubtful that enough campers would be here at one time to force the issue. Nice laundry. Had good AT&T and Verizon reception. Good for seeing Petrified Forest NP, Meteor Crater, etc. Not much else in town or around to do.

Really nice park. I had a great view of snow covered Mount Graham from my front door and a lake view out the back windows. Nice trails in the park, good hosts. Lots of birds and bunnies. I finally saw an Arizona cardinal here. Sites rough paved and fairly level. Most sites I saw looked fairly large with fire pits and picnic tables. Lake supposedly good fishing but didn't try. The rock hot tub is nice but is only about 100 degrees, not nearly hot enough. Essence of Tranquility is a 5 minute drive off of Hwy 191 and has 6 different pools of 101 up to 106 for only $5 an hour.

Rate reflects monthly rate, which was $529. I wanted the monthly rate of $479 but that only applies to the pull-throughs in the front of the park. Those sites are kept for overnighters even though they have a monthly rate?? So after several minutes of trying to understand this logic from one of the owners, who although very nice, was not very proficient in English, I agreed to pay the higher rate and stay in the back. The big advantage to the back is a much quieter environment and much nicer views of the surrounding mountains. They are all back in but extremely large sites and spacious roads make it easy even for me. The sites are all gravel, some of it fairly large but settled into the dirt well so not a problem. The Desert Trails RV is next door and a lot cheaper but extremely crowded. I thought it was a RV storage place by the way the campers were packed in. It was definitely worth the extra money to have a very large site and more privacy. Lots of trails behind the campground for hiking and biking and some of them connect to the Tucson Mountain Rec area. The campground is west of the city and somewhat remote but that is my preference. There is an every Wed. propane delivery, nice library, pool table, small dirt golf course and other activities. Lots of desert cacti and plants everywhere. There are no picnic tables at the sites. I had good AT&T and Verizon service.

I really liked this park and campground BUT they have recently raised their rates to $25 a day. That is getting pricey with no sewer or cable and is high compared to the local private RV camps. But is has spacious sites, great views, very quiet and private and you are not jammed in against your neighbor. A lot of the pull through sites have the power and water on the wrong side (unless you want your door facing the road!) and the hookups are at the end of the sites so it can be difficult to get fully in the site. The sites are all big. Great hiking and biking in the park with lots of trails

This park is cheaper than the only other place with hookups (Wahweap). The sites are unlevel front to back, side to side is usually pretty good. Nice view to the east with red rocks. Half the campground are 'perms' but anyone staying over a month has to go through a police check. Pool, spa, and laundry facilities are nice. They are making improvement to some of the campsites and building a wall in the back area. Nice trees. Would stay again.

Fantastic views of beautiful cliffs and the green Colorado river. Some good size pull throughs but not level at all. The beauty and serenity was marred only by the park service putting in new water lines. So it was an asphalt cutting saw powered by a large generator running in and around the campground from 7 am to 4:30 pm daily with a lunch break. A black cloud in paradise!!

Park is located between two public roads but is still quiet. Most of the sites were closed down and the park will shut down completely 11-7. Very clean and neat. Only 2 washers/dryers but very clean. Sites fairly close together but very long, nice pull thrus. A little pricey even with Good Sam discount.

Really nice location with easy walking to rim trail, visitors center, camp store. Most RV sites are fairly level and lots of big sites to choose from if you are early. Plenty of trees for shade and interior roads in decent condition. All sites with picnic tables and fire pits. Camp hosts very friendly and helpful. Awesome scenery

Really nice, clean well kept camp. Lots of grass and trees. Was unable to get satellite because of a bushy tree. Pull thrus are long and adequate. Backins also looked good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beautiful area with lots to do. Park is in the corner of Hwy 24 and 12 so some road noise but pretty quiet at night. If you have kids, there is a concrete basketball court and big fire pit area. Good water pressure.

Nice big sites, plenty of room on the sides. All gravel area with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. But just the basics, full hookups. I did have wifi (a little weak). No Verizon or ATT service. 60 miles (Ely)to the nearest real grocery store so stock up before spending any time here. Great Basin NP the only reason to spend more than overnight here but the park is well worth a few days.

Has a great view of the lake due to an electric/water only and no cable site: no full hookups available. Camp very clean and orderly. I was able to get DirectTV well (no trees at my site) and Verizon card worked great. No ATT cell service. Only problem I had was the campground rule of no checkins until 100PM. My site was available at 930 but no dice. They explained they needed the time to cut grass and water, neither of which was done (nor needed) at my site. So I sat at the visitors center for 4 1/2 hours as they wouldn't let me stay in their driveway area. Also, this meant that 5 campers were all trying to check in at the same time with some out in the highway. Also, this camp doesn't do credit cards, so bring checks or cash.

I stayed here 4 years ago and the management has changed since then. The campground is definitely worse! The rates are much higher (they were Passport American before) and the sites have not been improved or changed. It is on a terraced hillside and alot of the sites are very unlevel. They are narrow. They do have a nice pool area, laundry (although I was accosted by a worker when heading to do laundry and asked "are you registered here??"). Other activities also that I had no interest in. I had orginally reserved 16 nights as they said they were booked and I could not get 3 weeks (21 nights). When I arrived, I asked if there were any vacanicies and if I could stay 21 nights. I was told there were vacancies but the manager would have to be asked to authorize an 'extended stay'. The next day, I was told that I could not stay any longer than 16 days. This is at a $40 a night rate with no discounts!! The front desk told me that they had 'just about gotten rid of the riff-raff in the park and could not allow extended stays' I was asked twice if my stay was 'vacation or something else'. I am a full timer. I found several encounters with the personnel in the park to be unhelpful and unfriendly. My truck and fifth wheel are very clean and less than 4 years old, hardly what anyone would call 'riff-raff'! Several of the employees and camphosts have very old and unkempt campers with junk all over their campsite. There are also several old ratty campers that are occuping spots with no one staying in them. I was very displeased in general and will not stay here again. It is 50 miles and a good 45 minute drive to Yosemite Valley.

This is a very quiet shaded park right on the river. The previous rating said this park was mostly long term but that is not correct. There is an area of mobile homes but the main campground is regular campers. In fact, this campground has a 14 day limit. Lots of tress so manoeuvrings can be difficult if you are a really big rig. I was able to get around fine with a 38 foot fifth wheel. There is a swimming hole at the river. There is currently only wifi at the office but they say it will soon be all over the park. The camp hosts are very friendly, very helpful and hard working.

Pretty expensive, even with a weekly rate. Road noise and train tracks keep it from being very quiet. But you are very close to the dune access areas and beaches. The sites are close together on the hookup side but there is nice grass and picnic tables. Park is very clean and well maintained. The heated pool and spa are excellent. Most sites appear to be very level. Verizon and ATT access good

Rate reflects a weekly, discounted one. Very nice large shady trees with lots of hummingbirds and acorn woodpeckers. Full hookup sites are paved, but pavement varies greatly among the sites. Some new concrete, others very broken. Nice affordable option from the coastal camping and quiet. Lots of room with most sites. Lots of speed bumps. Had good service with Verizon and ATT.

This campground does have sewer uphooks if you want to pay the 'premium price'. I felt it was too much but they said no other sites were available for my size rig. Wifi works but you will probably only be able to get it in the 'premium sites'. I have an ongoing problem with these campgrounds that call themselves a resort. This one has a horseshoe pit and that is it! I think that resorts have swimming pools, spas, etc. A lot of the sites are unlevel. The good is that the surrounding views are very nice. The grounds of the campground are pretty with lots of flowers and greenery. The peacocks are beautiful but they are loud at night. But still too expensive for what you get and my rate was a weekly one.

Easy to access off interstate, this park has many permanent residents with lots of older RVs. Some sites fairly close together, and some sites are hard to get into. Most sites that I saw required some leveling. There are nice big shade trees and lots of big speed bumps. There are lots of poles and large rocks protecting the grass so maneuver with care. Swimming pools are very nice, one heated and the other not. All in all, a little run down and lots of people and cars everywhere. But the rate was good with weekdays on Passport America. Would stay again.

An excellent park with large sites quite a distance from each other. It is full on most weekends but you have it to yourself almost during the week. Several very large dairy ranches to the east that will almost gag you if the wind is blowing from that way and you are in the eastern campsites. There is lots of grass, trees and open space which makes up for the occasional smell. The sprinkler system timer seems odd (700 PM on Friday??). Time in camp limited to 14 days in a 30 day period so there is no long term junk around. It is very good value for the bucks! We had great reception with ATT and verizon.

Pick your site carefully as there are huge differences in where you are. Some of the F loop have no grass and are 3 and 4 abreast like a parking lot. LOTS of 'perms' with LOTS of junk everywhere. LOTS and lots of rules also (a whole page worth which you have to sign that you got) but no one in the park seems to pay any mind at all to them. Fairly pricey for what you get. A lot of sites have good room between sites and very nice grass. The F loop seemed to be full of loud talking rednecks. Some very nice views and great hill top locations but level sites are rare. Some work being done in A loop, which currently has very narrow roads and narrow sites.

Very nice park with some shade in the desert! Fairly large sites with trees between. Swimming pool and spa are in progress with expected completion 2010. This park is closed June - End of Sept. Very close to the Ocotillo off road area and 15 or so miles from Anza-Borrego state park. About 30 miles from Salton Sea. Laundry area with reasonable rates and very clean. Park owners and staff very friendly and helpful. New Wi-Fi system put in while I was there and it works well. Much better than nearby RV parks, which look like wild west towns. Has a dog fenced area. The bad: could not get cellphone reception on ATT, Verizon, or Sprint.

This reflects a weekly rate. This is a very nice park 4 miles from the Joshua Tree NP entrance. It is the typical desert park with a sandy surface. There are some trees between a lot of the sites but not much for shade. Views of the surrounding area are great. The small lake (us easterners would call it a 'pond') is very nice with lots of birds, ducks and fishing available for a fee. The sites are terraced so a pull through has a small hump to go over. They have fire pits and firewood (a little expensive) for sale. The Wi-Fi was accessible, but a little weak the further you get from the office area.

Definitely one of the nicer places to stay in the area. Very clean, nice landscaping, good views, large sites. Most of the campground ('resort') are privately owned lots so don't expect much in the nature of friendliness! The staff are very helpful and friendly however. The pool and hot tub were very nice. The park is a little pricey if you are watching a budget. Lots and LOTS of rules.

Amount reflects monthly rate. Camp is clean and orderly but the sites are very close together. There are concrete pads but they are not necessarily level. No picnic tables and moderate water pressure. If you have a fifth wheel, make sure that you get a site with the site across from you is vacant. That is about the only way you will be able to back in. The hot tub is very nice and the laundry room clean. But this is really like a parking lot camping. Beautiful views to the south if you can see them around the other campers.

High desert area park, beautiful views of the mountains around Albuquerque with great sunrises and sunsets. Plenty of room this time of year with fairly level sites. Nice laundry with pool table and exchange book collection. Very disappointed that the hot tub was shut down for the winter (THIS is when you really want it!) along with the swimming pool. Close to town and stores. Have stayed here several times

I have traveled full time for 4 years and this is the worst campground I have ever had the misfortune to stay in. It was like camping in a very muddy noisy junkyard. Drive through the night if you have to to avoid this one. I broke my cardinal rule of paying before looking at the camping facility and I won't do it again. I had planned to stay in a campground that I had already checked out before Memphis but decided to drive on through Memphis and avoid the morning traffic. I-40 is within sight and several major truck stops just across the road, so don't count on a good night's sleep. I wish I had stopped at the Wal-Mart 20 miles earlier. Even free camping at Shell Lake would be a ripoff.

Bathrooms older, but clean. Bathhouse is a long walk from the tent sites, but right next to the RVs! What's up with that?? Tent sites were big and private from each other due to lots of woods, but you could still hear the Florida rednecks playing their music way too loud. The campground security never seemed to drive by when this was happening. Lots to do in the area. The river was amazing for paddling, and of course, the manatee are worth the visit alone.

Paid Passport America rate but you also have to pay $8 to get into the park. Campground is old and the interior roads full of holes and bumps. a lot of the sites are small and weird shapes for larger RVs. Staff is helpful but some are not very RV literate. Lots to do in the park and very woodsy but you may have trouble with sat reception. Park Wi-Fi is expensive and difficult to get unless you are close to the office. This is about your only choice of a park if you want to be in the north Atlanta area

Excellent, excellent facility! Bathhouse is top notch, sites are very large for the Smoky Mtn area, very level, beautiful valley. Swimming pool area is very nice. This is one of the few RV 'resorts' that can truly call itself a resort. The weekend BBQ is incredibly good and very inexpensively priced. The only complaint I have is that the water pressure is barely adequate. Everything else is well thought out and well excuted. But have long hoses and connections as all of the hookups are are the end of your camping area

I rarely stay at KOAs, as they are just way too expensive for a cheap full timer. BUT I was tired of driving, and didn't want the extra 20 miles off interstate to hit the local Passport America campground. This CG was very clean, lots of grass and trees, level gravel sites, easy to drive in and out. Some noise level as right off I-40. The pool was very clean and very refreshing.

Lots of grass (alot of mowing going on!), some trees and fairly roomy sites where I was placed. I stayed two days and at $48 for that, using Passport America and Good Sam's, it was a little pricey! Nice clean pool. The I-40 freeway is close enough that there is plenty of noise and there is construction which makes finding the campground a little difficult. Campground is either full time residents or overnighters, but all is very neat and well kept.

I had a sloping site so somewhat difficult to level but also had a great view of the red rocks and roadrunners! Office staff somewhat scattered and disorganized but nice park and much cheaper than Wahweap. Will definitely stay again.
