This is a small campground with zero hookups and only pit toilets. It is a narrow dirt road to get to the campground, fine for tent campers, but use caution on curves and blind hills if in an RV. Sites are small and primarily intended for tent campers. This is NOT a big rig friendly campground, as gravel parking sites are small, but with decent sized grass areas, fire rings, and picnic tables on each site. RVs less than 32' fit OK. One or two sites will accommodate up to 36' if parking any tow vehicle separately in overflow parking. No parking on grass. 2 sites are on the water and not on the main campground loop. No reservations in advance, first come first serve, self register. Arrive on a Monday - Thursday during high season to be assured a site. Site MUST be occupied upon arrival and registration, and occupied each night (no holding sites in advance). Pets must be leashed. Rangers and sheriffs department drive through several times per day, on site camp hosts in high season. Nice for what it offers, at $8 per night. National park pass accepted for 1/2 price.
I was so disappointed with this facility. Since it is owned and operated by our mail forwarding service, which in turn is owned by a full time RVer we had high expectations. Here are the drawbacks of this location: Industrial area. Thick deep mud (2-4" deep) at edge of site, can't hookup nor dump sewage without wading through the mud. Our carpets were trashed the first day, then I wore slip off shoes and just left them outside after that. Sites are tight side to side, and rigs are parked back to back with little space between. Placement of water, electric, and sewage too far back for a motorhome. I used 30' of water hose to reach standpipe. One stand pipe feeds to two rigs parked back to back, so both rigs end up with poor placement for water hookup. I needed 2 sewage hoses (around 30' total) to reach sewer drop, which stands above ground level over 8" high. A high sewer drop may work for 5th wheels, but is way too high for a air bag equipped motorhome that dumps air bags to level. Wading through the mud to dump sewer is a added problem. Sewer drop should be moved forward to middle of site, and reduced in height to ground level or just above ground level. One upside: good free WiFi if close to building, good further out with WiFi booster which we have and used. Make sure to ask for WiFi code on check-in as we were not informed of availability nor code. I had pre-paid for week, and am sorry I did so. We will not stay here in the future. Rate indicated in my review is winter reduced weekly rate. I would pay more for a local campground with no mud and better hookup layout.
As other reviewers noted, the maintenance is slipping a bit with weeds and other over-growth, and some sites now completely closed. Few sites are big-rig capable, so early in the day arrival is advised to secure one of them. If they would move the concrete tire blocks back 3 to 4 feet on most of the sites, more big rigs would easily fit. Our motor-home is 38', and we dry-camped. This is almost all dry camping, with a few full hook-ups if you reserve way in advance. The soil is very soft except for the gravel parking pad. Make sure to not pull off into the dirt or weeds here. We observed one rig stuck deep in the soil (it had just rained). They really need to put up speed limit signs on each campground loop. It was scary watching rigs careening through at too high of a speed, with kids running around and bicycling. We would stay here again in order to visit the National Park.
We stayed in the full hookup RV area at Sky City Casino, exit 102 on I-40, $16.55 with tax. 50 amp FHU, with cable TV, and a weak WiFi signal from the casino. The campground is never attended, so go to the hotel desk to register. Diesel fuel was $2.98, with no surcharge for credit card instead of cash which is nice. With an out of state drivers license, the night-time buffet is only $5.99 each, including soft drinks and tea. The food was good. These are long gravel pull throughs. The park is completely neglected. There are huge prickly weeds everywhere, and a mouse infestation because of it. Stepping out your door, or hooking up to utilities, you will be in the massive weeds. It's a shame they don't take better care of it, as otherwise it would be a great over night stay. Next time though we will go down the road to exit 108 and stay at Dancing Eagle Casino to avoid the weeds. Dancing Eagle maintains their facilities so much better.
Excellent campground just south of Moab with friendly helpful staff. We stayed under Passport America rate with 50 amp FHU, an excellent price for the area. Clean well kept park, good free Wi-Fi, good water pressure, good Verizon signal. We really liked this park and would stay here again if we return to the area. Highly recommend.
A few strange things occurred with this campground. You cannot reserve this campground on line, only by phone. I called them and we reserved 3 nights in a 50 amp site. We received confirmation to my email but for 4 nights instead of three, with the rate indicated to my credit card. We figured we were in no hurry so decided 4 nights was fine and let it go without re-contacting them to ask them to correct their error. We arrived and the counter clerk said we were quoted too low of a rate, and it would be an additional $4 per night for the 50 amp space, even though we had email confirmation at the lower rate. No appology, and "attitude" on full display by the counter clerk. We agreed to pay the additional $4 per night rather than move on late in the day. We were then asked if we wanted to pay for WiFi. The campgrounds website clearly says free WiFi. Free WiFi at this campground apparently means one connect per day with a code, with a max time of 2 hours. 2 minutes or 2 hours once logged on, one "free" time per day. Or so-called unlimited access for $2 per day. Except all connections, "free", or "unlimited" is data restricted. You can use 96 megabytes per 48 hours, then you are slowed to dial up speed. After 160 megabytes in 48 hours, you are kicked out of the system for 48 hours. First time I have EVER seen this plan, and "free" is an outright fabrication in my opinion. The campground is fine, but a bit close together for some sites which included ours. Good water pressure, good electric. Zero Verizon cell or air card access, even with roof antenna and amp. I detest nickel and dime charges that are not disclosed in advance. I detest attitudes by personnel who are collecting our funds in return for service. I detest mis-representations like "free WiFi". We will never, ever, stay here again.
K&M park, stayed under Coast to Coast affiliation at $10 a night. Multitude of nickle and dime charges: $1 a day "energy surcharge" - for 30 amp? $3 a day cable tv, $1 day for wifi - plus tax on all of the above. Very tight turns in the park, relatively small spaces. Clean and well kept, but we detest all the nickle and dime charges - charge one rate and supply the amenities!
Thunderbird Resort is a Thousand Trails and affiliates campground. Wi-Fi in the lodge only, good Verizon cell and air card signal. We had no over the airwaves antenna TV signal here. Each site has a picnic table. The park is split into 2 sides with Ben Howard Road separating the 2 parts. We are in FHU on the main side with 30 amp, volts a bit low at 111 volts with everyone running air conditioning. The Skykomish River side of the park has 50 amp power, but no sewer drops. The river side is up on a bluff above the river, but has a access road (think walking trail) down to the river bank. Park is clean and well groomed for as busy as it is, perhaps 95% full. On main side there is an adult only pool, family pool, spa (whirlpool/hot tub) for adults only, and a kiddie wading pool. Nice playground on main side for the kids, laundry room on river side of park. Main side also has shuffleboard, volleyball court, mini golf, horseshoe pits, etc. Book well ahead in busy season, as this park is relatively small and close to major population centers. We would stay here again for short stays.
This is a Thousand Trails park located near Lake Wenatchee 15 miles from Leavenworth. Check routing in and come from the west side if you are in a RV. 60 full hook-ups, 260 power and water only, 4 day use sites - Rentals: 6 trailers, 4 motel rooms, 4 cottages, 4 cabins, 1 seven-bedroom Log House. Wi-Fi in the lodge only, good Verizon cell and air card signal. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit. Firewood for sale at the entrance. This is a very large park with forested trails and large grassy areas. It is more like camping in a state or national park than a private campground. Non-members can camp here under a introductory deal by calling Thousand Trails or checking their website. We were in a full hookup 30 amp site in Meadow View loop with good power, and nicely screened from neighbors by trees and vegetation. We will stay here again.
The boat ramp mentioned on one post is no longer open, and there is no access to the river from the park. There are very nice views of the river, and river access down the road a bit. There is a fee area to launch boats, or free public parking with some river access. 30 Amp full hook ups, low voltage with the park 1/2 full and everyone's A/C going. I have 109 volts on my site. They are working on some of the power pedestals on some of the sites. This is a Thousand Trails park with some affiliations. The park is at a area called Crescent Bar about 15 miles from Quincy in the Columbia River Gorge. I have 4 bars of extended network Verizon service, and the air card is working great. There is Wi-Fi in/very close to the rec center, but not at the sites. The A/C is off in the rec center, with fans and open windows. The laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers. Pool and spa temporarily closed during our visit. If they get the pool/spa opened, and the voltage fixed, we will stay here again.
An older, but nice campground. There is a River view from some sites. K&M, C2C, RPI, ROD etc park. The Wifi was weak at site, but we had good Verizon cell and air card reception. We had a 50 amp full hook up for $10 Resorts Park International rate. Sites are mostly back in, and a little tight. There is very nice staff in park. There is no noise from highway or town, and it is walking distance into town. It is a nice little town to check out. They have a hot tub, pot lucks and weekend breakfasts. We would stay here again.
This is a membership park. We stayed under Resort Parks International at $11 night with tax. It has a very strange full hook up setup. One big box at front of site with all utilities. With Motor home, 5th wheel, or Travel Trailer you will need long sewer run, water hose, and electric/cable TV runs. I used 24' of sewer run - and it is not graded right for this length of sewer run. The WiFi useless at sites but ok at clubhouse. There is good Verizon reception. All sites are close together. The lower section nicer - upper section gravel and very tight. The "Waterfall" is a pond/pump system with nasty water in it. Mini-golf course is green ripped up carpet, kids "boat" section is full of dirty water. There are lots of pine trees, and nice staff. This park needs work - K&M runs it and is clearly taking the profits and not investing in upkeep.
On the river, but just yards from a highway bridge over the river, and some mosquitoes in July. It is still nice to walk along the river bank. A mix of sites, some with strangely arranged hookups. Park needs a little work on it. Some sites are 30 amp, some are 50 amp. Sites closest to river are 30 amp and do not have sewer drops. Good cable TV, Wi-Fi useless at the sites. Some full time residents in trailers in the park. Picnic table and fire ring (old car wheel) at each site, reasonable rates on firewood sales. Showers are coin operated. Young girl in office clueless, but older lady is efficient. Rate I show is with Good Sam discount. We would first look for another park, but might still stay here again for a few days.
PA rate 1/2 price for 2 nights, then $2 discount per night for 4 nights. $25 plus tax is full rate. Pull through, full 50 amp hookup. 15 miles from west entrance of Yellowstone NP. No reception via TV antenna, Verizon cell and air card worked, good wifi. Prarie dogs and gophers are leaving loose dirt piles, and possibly fleas if you are walking dogs in the area. We would stay here again if in the area.
Our $17 rate shown is Passport America, pull through, FHU 30 amp. Friendly host, good wifi, Verizon cell and air card reception here as well. If you walk or drive to the end of town and about 1/4 mile down the gravel road at the end you can view the Yellowstone River from the bridge. You can hear the highway and the trains from this park. We would stay here again for one night passing through the area.
Small, tightly spaced campground. Gravel and grass, no dump station, no sewer drops. No Verizon cell phone service. Campground looks nothing like the website. Inexpensive $10 Passport America rate, but we would not stay here again.
Nice membership campground. We stayed under Coast To Coast for $10 a night. Front desk crew very nice. Desi, the manager, was extremely helpful in resolving a Coast To Coast problem for us, way above the call of duty. We will stay here again in the future.
Very nice gated private membership resort with on-site roving security, large swimming pool, jetted hot tubs, store, fuel and propane, restaurant, put put golf, rental items, pool tables, tennis courts, dog walk area, etc. Rate I show is $10 day RPI/C2C, $2.50 day utility fee, & tax. Two sides to park: pet and no-pets. 10 MPH enforced and also highly advisable due to kids on bikes and many walkers. I recommend this park.
Very remote from the towns and the tourist type sites to visit. Winding narrow roads to get to and from the campground, and some not fit at all for driving on in a RV. Carefully check your route in, and better yet contact campground for routing. Wi-fi works at/near camp store, not from all sites. No cell phone reception, but they have a pay phone. 30 amp sites with water, some with sewer drop. Once you are in the campground it is very nice, scenic, and well maintained. If you are OK with the remoteness it is a nice place to camp. Very nice tent sites and cabins as well.
Wonderful owners, clean and well kept campground. Owners doing constant improvements. Good Wi-Fi. Call for directions in advance - do not trust GPS. My rate was Passport America - which has date restrictions so check dates. I recommend this campground.
Basic RV park with gravel setup, FHU, good 50 amp, cable TV and Wi-Fi. Offers Good Sam, AAA, AARP discounts of 10%. Good overnight stop. At all costs avoid the Buffalo Point Steak Restaurant in walking distance. Over priced, and food from a bag/can quality.
We were north bound on Hwy 83 and campgrounds are few and far between. This is a good overnight stop just east of 83 on Hwy 50. There is room for a 40 foot rig with tow car attached, good 50 amp full hookups, and good Wi-Fi. This is a basic campground, dirt roads, dirt parking pads, grass between rigs, trees, picnic tables, and a bit tight between rigs. It met our needs and we would stay one night again in the future.
This campground is in the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge. There are walk-in primitive sites, drive in semi-primitive sites with no hookups, group sites with electric and shelters, and 50 amp electric sites. Most sites have fire pits, and firewood is available at the entrance. There is a dump station and fresh water at the entrance, and fresh water standpipes at various points in the park. There is a shower house/restroom, a restroom only, and pit toilets. The restroom was clean before the Memorial Day weekend, dirty during the holiday weekend as the park was very full. From our campsite we have seen buffalo, deer, squirrels, and birds. On walks we also saw 2 coyotes, Canada geese, turtles, lizards, and hawks. The only drawback was that there are small ticks in the park. I would hesitate to camp here with a dog, and you NEED Deep Wood's OFF or similar bug repellent, and to examine clothes and yourself several times per day. I recommend this wooded park for a get away, especially during non-holiday times, but prepare in advance for ticks.
Price was Passport America rate, 50 amp. Large railroad timbers at edge of sites, so don't pull in too close with a motorhome or you will not be able to open compartment doors. The soil parking surface on our site was very loose, and jack foot sank in over 8 inches. It was semi-level so we retracted the jacks and did not use them. Very friendly park owner, and nice walk down to rivers edge. This is a combination Mobile Home park with permanent residents, and rv park.
This is a very nice park. The layout, space, grass and trees make for a great environment. They have also just opened a new section of 20 spaces. The owners and campground hosts are very friendly and accommodating, and visible around the park daily. The monthly rate is currently $275 plus electric at .14 per kilowatt hour. There is only one drawback to this park, and that is a small laundry room of two washers and two dryers. This park is located 1/2 way between Rockport and Aransas Pass, on Highway 35. I highly recommend this park.
This a private, gated park, but you can visit as a guest with Passport America for $11 per night, plus electric. Arrive during business hours, and use the PA system at the entry gate for them to open the gate for you. The sites for Passport America guests have water and electric hookup, no sewer drop. You choose your own spot from the available spaces. They allow using a garden hose drop from the grey tank to help water the oak trees, and there is a sewer dump station available. The campground is nice, quiet, and with friendly deer wandering around that some campground members hand feed. The lake itself was way down in water level in April 2009, and there were no boats nor people on the water. It is a nice place to stay.
The middle row of sites are heavily sloped, and the sewer drop is at the high end of the site. It is virtually impossible to dump from a low motorhome. With any type rig, to dump requires 2 long sewage hoses with a support under both of them, and still you must "walk" the sewage out of the hoses multiple times to accomplish dumping sewage. I cannot recommend this park until they solve the horrible engineering of the sewer drops. It is a sanitation nightmare.
