Nice location and views. Not the nicest COE park. Most loops are old and the facilities were built in the 60's. Restrooms dirty and in disrepair. There are two loops with newer sites and facilities, and they are in better shape. Here's one for you: All of the entrance roads and campground roads are paved, but there is a 200 yard section, at the entrance booth to the campground, and a 50 yard section, between loops, that are dusty dirt and appear to have never been paved. Everyone who drives through creates a ball of blowing dust. I don't get it.
Not sure what other reviewers use as a gauge to give to give this park a 9 or 10. It is a dirt and gravel parking lot. When the wind blows (and it blows here a lot), the dust blows also. The wireless Internet works, but it is only 1.5 Mbps, so it is fairly slow. The park is listed as offering 15% off for Escapees, but the park no longer honors this. The owner is helpful, as others have said, but $30 for an elec/water site in a dirt/gravel parking lot does not warrant anything higher than a 7.
This is our second visit here. I was hoping the new owners had made some significant improvements. While they have added some signs and fences, it is still rather poor. On the good side, the internet is still fast. On the bad side, low hanging trees, dogs running loose, very tight spaces and endless blowing dust and sand. The first half of the park is full timers and is very run down. If your a family, tenting, then this may be the place for you.Its not for larger RVs.
This is a nice, clean park as others have said. However, the internet is throttled and limited to 40kB. It also blocks some services. If you are looking for a fast internet connection, don't come here.
This is my 2nd time here in two years. It is still fairly clean and all concrete. Not much character. The rate has gone up significantly, since last visit. The internet connection is now throttled and limited to 40kB. Too slow for any downloads. The laundry dryers do not heat up well, requiring extended drying times. Based on the internet alone, we won't be back.
Like previous reviews stated, nice clean park and a little odd getting into it. Unlike previous reviews, the Internet connection is very slow and easily overwhelmed. The previous reviewers must have been accustomed to a dial up connection before this park. Come for the park, not for the Internet.
The +'s: Nice, paved sites. Beautiful setting. Excellent 10 mbs wireless internet. The -'s: The grass is not watered, so by September it is all dead and weeds. Two days of three different mowers, mowing the dead grass. This a is a great place to stay in the Eugene area.
This is a great park and location to visit Winthrop. Walking distance to an excellent, local museum, and to town. The park has all new utilities and a new, fast, wireless internet system. Owner is great, as were all the other guests we talked to. Great price for Escapees or Passport America folks mid-week. Highly recommended.
While this is a nice, clean, park, it is not a 10. The road noise is very loud, day and night. Hwy 2 is the main route between Seattle and Wenatchee. If you get stuck in loop "D", like I did, you are as close to the major highway as you can get, without parking on the shoulder. My view consisted of the migrant farm worker tent camp behind me and the busy highway to my side. River? What river? You would never know it unless you walked to the other side of the park. The sites that border the river are booked a year in advance. Nice facilities, but poor location. Wireless internet is decent and appreciated.
As of 5/21, the dump station is closed for construction. There is no other hose hookup available for fresh water. Use another RV park to dump and get water. Of course, NPS doesn't post any warning about this on their website or reservation site. Typical incompetence.
I just finished 7 nights at the $20 passport rate. The park is clean, paved, and well maintained. The only noise is from the trains, very close by. Walking distance to town and the Grand Canyon Railroad. I would have rated higher, but the internet speeds are terrible. My Verizon is 20 times faster. Xanterra should do something about this. Otherwise, great park.
Currently, the rate is $15 a nite, even if you are not a passport member. The internet connection is very fast (10mb), if you stay close to the office. Nice clean park. Only drawback, is the 15 mile drive to downtown Prescott. Would definitely stay here again.
Great location, that's the positive. The campground is old, the site pullouts were once paved, but that has weathered away to dirt, and the bathrooms need to be demolished and rebuilt. As with Colter Bay, zero maintenance has been done here in 40 years. Except, 9 brand new paved, big, level sites have been installed, with electric. Brand new bathroom also. Beautiful sites, BUT, only for handicap access, and the price for those sites more than doubles. What about the rest of the campground?
Like with all NPS campgrounds, great location, but they have the exclusive. This could be a great campground, but in the 40 years I have been coming here, not one improvement has been made. The bathrooms are old, rusted, and should be demolished. The site pullouts were once paved, but that has rotted away to dirt. When it rains, most pullouts flood and it takes days for the water and mud to dry out. The campground is managed by Grand Teton Lodges, and they have some good employees, but the campground just needs a complete overhaul. Too bad.
Nice area of central Idaho. Lots of outdoor stuff to do. The park is clean and has great views of the area. Verizon coverage is good on extended network. No 3G, but the park's internet works fine. The only negative here is the sites are not near level, side to side, so one side of your rig is jacked up quite a bit. Overall, a nice place to spend a week.
Stayed here for two months. The campground is rustic and has quite a few year round residents. Don't let this deter you, as it is a pleasant place to stay. Great monthly rate and nice owners. The only big, big drawback is the dust. When the wind blows (and it does frequently in Moab), the campground is a dust bowl. The entire place is sand, with little vegetation, and a fine red dust gets into every crack and crevice and coats the inside of your rig and vehicle. Ron has a great piece of land here and could make this a beautiful park, but the dust and sand need to go.
Now, this is a very nice campground. Several loops have been remodeled and are open. They all have electric, are paved and have a concrete patio area with a new picnic table. The sites are large, very nicely done and should be a model for the Federal agencies to use when modernizing one of their campgrounds. Of course, that happens so rarely, you probably have a better chance of being hit by a comet.
This is a very nice NPS campground. Roads and sites are paved. There are some long sites, good for a 40'+ rig. Great location on the river. Like almost all NPS campgrounds, there are a few low tree branch issues. It is very annoying that NPS parks refuse to properly trim the tree branches to a safe height. Note: About 1/2 the sites are closed due to "dangerous tree" issues. These are old, mature cottonwoods that have been there for a long time. I'm guessing that a branch fell and did some damage, so NPS has marked about 1/2 the trees as dangerous and closed the adjacent camp sites. That was two months ago and nothing has been done since then. Get there early in the day if you want a site.
First review of this fairly new park. Centrally located to Grand Junction. Spaces are large pull-through and all concrete. Decent wireless connection. Very sparse landscaping. Basically, it is a large concrete slab. However, coming from the dust and sand of Moab, this is a welcome change. The only drawback is all of the spaces are not level side-to-side. It's doable, but requires a lot of lift on one side. Overall, it is a nice, clean park. Good weekly rate of $135-$145.
Very clean park. Very good Internet connection. Very narrow access roads make it tight to pull in and out for longer rigs. A nice place to stay in Las Vegas, but it's not located in the best part of town. 24 hour security at the front gate helps.
This is a Passport rate, which is good for four nights. The park is clean and the owners are very nice. Good internet connection, which you must pay for. Nice view of the lake. The BIG BIG drawback here, is that the park is a sardine can and you a squished in with your neighbor. The spaces are the narrowest, tightest I have ever stayed in. Just too close for my taste.
This is an OK park. The sites are wide and not packed like sardines, as are other parks in the area. The monthly rate is very good and includes 900 kwh of electric. The negatives are the internet connection slows to a crawl during the day and the sites are all sand, so if it rains, it is a mess. Also, you need a minimum of 20' of sewer hose to make a connection. There are great views of the river and Laughlin at night. Laundry is good and the staff friendly. Note: Verizon 3g/data does not work in the Bullhead area.
This is my 3rd year here for a month, or longer. The park is still very nice and probably the best thing going in the San Diego area. However, this year the wireless is lousy. They have gone to Tengo and the speeds are capped at 300k, which is slow. It is throttled down from there, if you use "too" much bandwidth. I spoke with the new Park manager. He is aware of the problem, but it didn't seem to be a priority. Also, most all the spaces are covered in a sand/clay mix. When it rains, it can become a muddy mess. For $740 a month, plus electric, some improvements could be made.
I love watching government and tax dollars at work. Cottonwood, the newer campground, is very nice. Large sites, concrete pads, free wireless. Really first class sites. But. Sites 240-261 are not complete. The pads and utilities are here, but it is dirt all around them. No grass, no trees, just barren. And, they are designed to be pull through sites, but the exit road was never built, so the only way to use them, with a trailer, is to back in, which puts the utilities on the wrong side. The WEB site and the reservation site make no mention of this, so I ended up with two useless reservations. Fortunately, I was able to change to the interior sites. Nice park, considering the location, but stay away from the unfinished sites.
The great thing about this park is the location. Nice scenery and away from the City. I recommend it for that, but: 1) The WEB site says most sites are first come first served. This is no longer accurate. All RV sites are now reservable. The WEB site gives you no site information, so good luck on getting a long site, if you need it. Many are very short. 2) The sites are not level, narrow and shrubbery is a problem if you have deep slideouts. I had to prune back several large tree branches. 3) The fire rings are full of ashes and trash. I recommend this park, but San Luis Obispo County could do a better job here, and with their WEB site. This could be a great park.
This is an OK stopover for one night, but I wouldn't stay longer. The park hasn't changed in the 10 years since I was here last, except the price went up. It is flat, level and has 50 amp pull-through sites. Not much else. Verizon coverage was good. The good news is fan appreciation night at the stock car track, so we watched the races for free.
Stayed in the dry camp area over the holiday weekend, with lots of other rigs. It is just a parking lot, but the sites are larger and the views better than the RV park, at less than 1/2 the price. You have access to the showers and laundry. Walking distance to Rogue Brewery. If you like dry camping, this place is OK for a few nights.
Don't let appearances send you away. This park is OK. It looks a little rough, but everything works. Good wireless internet. There are a few full concrete pads near the front, otherwise it is grass/dirt. Half the sites back up to some tall Redwoods, so the sun (if there is sun) disappears mid afternoon. For $20 a night, full hookups, it is just fine.
The location is OK. Fairly quiet, across from an airport. Golf course is right behind the RV park and is nice to look at. No amenities at all. Just the pad and hookups. Here are the problems: 1) The internet rate was lower than the price they wanted to charge me at check in. I refused the higher rate and they charged me the lower rate. 2) In less than 24 hours we had a golf ball wizz by our heads and bounce off the back of the RV. There is a protection fence, but it only covers half the sites. The other half are wide open to the 1st fairway. We demanded and moved to a space behind the netting. 3) The golf course maintenance mowers start up at 05:30 and mow the fairways every day. If you're a golfer, the course looks nice.
This is a nice, clean park. The full time residents (95%) are all friendly. The negatives are lots of road noise, day and night. The park sits on the road to the Seattle ferry. Also, there is a 4 page, double sided, fine print set of rules and a two page registration form. They are trying to keep the undesirables out, but have overdone it. This park is not designed for an overnight stay. If you are looking for a long term stay in this area, I would recommend this park.
This is a nice campground, but not a 10. The interior roads are dirt and very dusty. Every vehicle that drives by your site kicks up a load of dust. They even have signs that ask you to slow down because of the dust. Why not pave the roads? The wireless coverage is very good, but the internet connection is slow. It becomes very slow during the day when a lot of folks are using it. The grounds are very nice. Similar to camping in a State park.
Beautiful park. Paved sites right on the river. Verizon OK here. Only negatives are no sewer, but a good dump station, 30 amp only, and no internet. This park does not take reservations and appears to be always full. Get here early in the day to try and get a site. Great spot to visit Lake Chelan and Rocky Reach dam and museum.
A typical NPS campground. They have great locations and views, but something is always poorly done. In this case, its the fresh water spigots. They are terrible. You need a lot of force to turn them on and you must hold them on the entire time you use it. Since there is no dump station, its a real pain to fill your fresh water tank. It took me 15 minutes of painful holding the spigot on to get 1/4 tank of fresh water. What idiot picked these out of a catalog. Verizon worked fine. The sites are fairly level and a few are large enough for any rig.
Clean park and nice owner. East Glacier is on Indian land and the roads look and feel like it. Verizon works fine. Great views. Lots of train noise as its the main line over Marias pass.. The electric/water sites are nice, but only 20 amp electric. Nice place to stay on the East side of Glacier National Park.
Nice location and pretty campground. Good Verizon coverage. But: 1) Dump station has no fresh water. You also block one of the interior roads while using the dump. 2) Fresh water spigots are harder to find than black hills gold. You need 75' of hose and are blocking the road while you fill up. 3) Lots and lots of mosquitoes.
Nice campground, clean and level. The owner is very helpful about things to do in this area. Wireless is good, considering the location. The campground is actually 5 miles west of Lingle and easy to miss.
$35 rate includes $9 a day entrance fee, or buy an annual pass for $70. Nice level sites and plenty of space. Charging 50 cents for a 3 minute shower, after paying $35 a night, is poor. The wireless internet is horrible, as it was 2 years ago. The office is doing a survey so they can show Cox cable how bad the internet is. Cox should be ashamed.
This is an older campground, with 30 amp electric only. Most of the sites are not level. There is a lot of dirt and dust here, when the wind blows. Apparently, it blows all the time. The bathrooms are dated and they charge for showers. After paying the $7 entrance fee, and the $22 camping fee, it is really tacky to have coin op showers. This park is really for the local boaters. I won't be back.
Excellent Park. $15 reflects monthly rate. Very close to downtown. Owner is always around to check on things. Excellent wireless (now that the wireless router was replaced). Overall, a nice place to be in Hot Springs.
Nice, new, clean park with concrete pads and roads. New management is trying very hard to make it a go. Rate is based on monthly. Very good internet (GTEK $20 a month). Definitely would stay here again.
Pulled in late, expecting the best, based on the previous ratings. Most of the sites are very short. A couple of pull-through sites were occupied. Many of the sites are not near level. Some were blocked by overhanging tree branches. The numerous speed bumps on the main loop road get very annoying. Driving through the entrance to the Park is very tight. This is a typical State park, which was designed for much smaller rigs. There is no comparison between this Park and the State parks in Arizona, Oregon, or others. On the redeeming side, it does offer great views of the surrounding area.
This is a great BLM campground, with one exception. For some reason, they put GFI breakers on the 30 amp power. I could not get my power to stay on, as apparently, many others have had the same problem. I found one site with no GFI breaker and was able to get power OK there.
We pulled in, took one look around and pulled out. All long term residents and the place just had a creepy look to it. See my review of Suntides for a much better alternative.
(We did not stay in this park)
A nice place to stay in Golden. The spaces are tight, but the park is clean. The manager is very helpful. Call at 7 AM the day you want to get in to get on the waiting list. He will call you back if he has a spot available. There is excellent Wi-Fi. There were some mosquitoes at dusk. I would definitely stay here again.
This is a great place, except for two items. There are plenty of mosquitoes and the wireless internet system is horrible, not working most of the time. Many folks complained about the wireless and were told it would be corrected immediately. That did not happen in the 6 days I was here.
Clean park, right on the lake. Sites are sand and grass. All of the waterfront sites are taken with rigs that stay here all summer. There is a hospital on the hill behind the park that has a very noisy A/C system. I would stay here again because it is very convenient to Petoskey and Mackinac Island. If the City spent a few bucks and a little time, this could be a great park.
Nice park, right on the river. Great views of the passing ships. Very few 50 amp spots. The only negative to this park is the lousy wireless internet. Constantly up and down and not designed to handle 100 campers.
Great view of the bridge and ship canal. Owner very helpful. I did have trouble with the main electric quality, but we were moved to a new site and connected to a boat dock electric. Definitely would stay here again.
