A beautiful state park. We stayed in site #37 in the Section 1 Electric. It was a challenge getting our 32 foot fifth-wheel into the site. It is very quiet in Section 1. There is quite a bit of privacy and trees. However, choose your site carefully. Some sites would have been impossible for us to get in to. The Olympic-sized swimming pool is great ($2 per person). We also enjoyed the boat ride through Twin Caves ($3 per adult, $1 per child).
We are not fans of KOAs, either. But, this place isn't bad. The bathrooms are spotless. They even have 3 very nice family bathrooms. Our dog was very happy with the 2 dog runs. The pool is great and very well maintained. The owners are super nice and work extremely hard to maintain the campground. When some late arrivals pulled in around 10:30 PM, the owners hopped in their golf cart and were at the office to greet them. There is some highway noise. The campground seems to attract older campers. The families with kids kept their children under control. The camp store is well stocked with most of the things you will run out of. The only downside is that the sites are very narrow. Your picnic table will be right next to your neighbor's slide-out.
This is a nice park that attracts older campers. There are nice, easy pull thrus with full hookups. If your kids need a pool and playground, this probably isn't the place for you. We used the park as a base camp to explore the area with our 7 and 9 year old children. Our kids had fun at the campground even without the amenities. The bathrooms and laundry room are spotless. There is not a lot of shade. There is a some highway noise and train noise, but it didn't bother us. One note, though: The park has a new owner as of Memorial Day weekend. He is very nice and is working very hard to maintain and even improve the place.
This is an okay park for an overnight stop. The roads are gravel and fairly narrow. The sites could be better maintained. The hookups are less than desirable. If you do stay here, do not go in the pool! It is poorly maintained with rust stains down the side. The water is cloudy as others have said. The pool was full of obnoxious teenagers who were the friends of the teenagers working in the office. When we complained about the behavior happening in the pool, the teenagers working in the office just laughed.
Beautiful place to stay. Skip the pull-thrus in Hackberry area. The pull-thrus curve and are difficult to get in to. A back-in would have been much easier for us with our 32' 5th-wheel. Hackberry has lots of shade and wild life. We saw deer, turkeys, and even a tarantula. But, if you want a view of the canyon walls, then stay in the Mesquite area. Also, the sites in Hackberry did not seem as level as the sites in the Mesquite area.
Nice place for an overnight stop. Easy to get to off of I-40. Level pull-thru sites. The complimentary cookies were a nice treat at check-in. They even had a puppy-treat for our dog! The continental breakfast wasn't much--cereal, donut holes, coffee, juice. Make sure to go on the walking trail through the lava fields--an interesting, short walk.
