We nearly left after the first night because of the street traffic noise; we were in the pull-through sites along the street (we do NOT recommend them). The campground either needs to put up a sound barrier, or the city needs to enforce the 15 mph speed limit. However, the staff was very nice about letting us move to a riverside back-in site. It was such a huge difference that we extended our stay another two nights (three nights total). The site was huge, with enough room for several toads and a large "living" area next to the river. Amazing views. Walked across the bridge several times for window shopping, shopping, dinner, etc. Easy access to great Jeep trails as well. Very charming town. We would definitely camp here again.

Wow! This was one of our favorites ever. They could have charged us much, much more. It's basically a beautiful fruit orchard, with campsites. The kids swam in the river at the end of the walkway. The friendliest staff we've ever encountered. They even had specially assigned astronomers on site to offer a night sky show (including telescope use). This is because the area has some of the lowest light pollution, so star gazing is amazing. The trails nearby are fantastic. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved it here. After we left for more adventures in other parts of Utah, we returned to Moab and easily chose this campground again. The one thing to watch for: do not take a site close to the entrance, lots of traffic at all hours of the day. Row 1 is where we stayed the second time, and it was perfect. Very nice staff. They also waived the fee for children because our kids were just over the cutoff. Nice location; we walked to dinner nearly every night. Nice laundry facility, but the washers don't do a good job of getting that red Moab dirt out of clothes. The kids loved the pool. We would definitely camp here again.

The playground was not actually on the campground; it was near the entrance in a city park, but it was easily accessible and fantastic. The walking trail along the river was great: kids loved it. However, we noticed non-campers coming into the campground from the walkin trail, at least one of whom was suspicious. The site itself was horrible for our 33 foot rig. No room to extend the slideout, and barely room to park our Wrangler. We self-registered after hours, so we did not have access to the bathrooms or Wi-Fi. We would not camp here again.

One of the best playgrounds we've seen. Sites are good size. We had a pull-through site right near the private residence and office. We only stayed one night. The only negative thing is that they sold us firewood, but then after dark when we were sitting by the fire, an employee came by to scold us about the burn ban. We were not aware (no signs anywhere). You would think they had mentioned it when we bought the firewood, especially since we were staying only one night. Other than that, we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here a couple times, each time at least two nights. We really enjoy the campground. Because of the weak Wi-Fi (hotspot) access, we stayed in sites 1 - 3 each time because they are closest to the office/store. With a repeater, the Wi-Fi worked fine. One of several playgrounds was right across the street from us, as was a nice beach on the Mississippi River. Beautiful. The manager is great, fun and super helpful. Since this is literally an island, new sewer hookups available, but the dump stations are somewhat convenient and well-maintained. It is a County of La Crosse campground, so there is a very limited number of seasonal sites. We will definitely be staying there again.

This is a poorly managed and overpriced facility, which is unfortunate because it is a great campground. We know some families who have seasonal sites here, and they have had numerous issues with unethical management. Some great lake view sites. Two nice, kid-friendly pools. Nice playgrounds, and it seems quite safe for the kids to ride their bikes and scooters around the campground. We would stay here again because it's very kid friendly and also because we know people who stay there.

Very cool campground for kids. Beware of altitude sickness. The campground is built on a foothill, which makes for fun trails and walks. Great playgrounds. Kids were invited to help Yogi with the flag lowering and folding ceremony. If I remember correctly, cell phone reception was minimal. Great drive there and continuing on the next day, but you can't be afraid of mountainous roads. We would stay here again.

This was one of our favorite campgrounds so far this summer. The manager is a professional, friendly, young woman whose grandmother founded the campground 45 years or so ago. She gave us good directions. (Our GPS didn't recognize it. Just use Turquoise Lake as your destination; the campground is on the way.) This was a spontaneous overnighter that was a very pleasant surprise. Beautiful place to relax by the campfire. Magnificent views (near the highest point in CO). Great playground. We would definitely camp here again. Not very close to town but close to Turquoise Lake.

Nice playground. Great staff. Internet access is good. We liked this campground as an overnighter, but it might be remote if you are looking for easy access to local activities. Would stay here again!

I'm not certain on the rate we paid, but it was between $35 and 45. Staff is great here. Even though there was no playground for the kids, they offered to let them play in the pavillion (it became their playhouse). They also made a huge effort to move our site so we would be away from the highway and safer for the kids. They also made a great recommendation on Jeep rental place. Too far from town if you don't have a vehicle or bikes. Laundry facility looked great, but the hours were too inconvenient for us; by the time we returned from the days' activities, we never had time to do even one load. We drove through some of the other campgrounds. The one right in town seems to be the place to be (it was full when we tried to reserve). Also, the campgrounds north of town seemed to be nicer overall because that area of town was a bit nicer than south of town.

Yes, this was a ripoff. The worst campground of the whole summer. The staff is rude, unorganized, unprofessional. Guests were waiting on staff and a host/manager from a nearby camp to do laundry! The cook was very nice and good, but the meal was extremely overpriced (and they gave us plastic utensils). Nice playground. Too far from attractions if you don't have a vehicle. We will definitely not camp here again.

I can't remember the exact rate, but I'm almost certain it was between 40 and 50. Great management and staff. This was a spontaneous overnighter, and we were pleasantly surprised by the campground. Pool is perfect for families and young children. Playground is adequate but minimal and a bit run down. Other than that, they are about the details (e.g. The firewood even included kindling). The store prices are very reasonable (they could probably charge double for some items and still be comparable to other campgrounds). Must be a good work culture because the staff seems to get along very well. We would camp here again.

Great value! Everything you might need/want because it is also a resort. So many activities that we didn't have time to do all of them. Well managed - professional. More of a corporate rather than friendly feel. We rented a car, which was an older car at a high price, but the convenience was worth it. There was a hail and rain storm one night, and the maintenance crew was out the very next morning to clean/level the roads. We would camp there again.

Extremely overpriced!! We stayed in a super site, which was $80 and not any nicer than many sites we've had at other campgrounds for around $50. We had two extra adults at $6 each. Then they also charged us for our vehicle! You would think that high price would include everything. Wi-fi is also an extra charge. New bathrooms are beautiful but not practical, and new shower heads are already broken. Shuttle to beach is also an additional charge, although a great service. We wouldn't camp here again.
