We really enjoyed this park. Check in was very efficient. I asked for a satellite friendly site, and was asked if my satellite was on the front or back of my rig! They really know their sites. We were escorted to our pull through site, which easily accommodated our 67' rig without unhooking the toad. The utilities worked and were in the right place, something that many parks seem to have trouble with. The parking pad was gravel, surrounded by well maintained green grass. There are many sites with shade, if that is your desire. The restrooms and laundry were clean. Laundry is still only $1 to wash, and $1 to dry. We had a tasty large pizza delivered from their store, for about $10. They have a nice selection of sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and even breakfast items, all of which can be delivered (no charge for delivery). There was some road noise, but not too objectionable, at least with our windows closed. There are a number of long term residents in RVs, but their sites appeared neat, and they caused us no problems. Our Verizon phones and aircard worked well. This is a great overnight stop, and we will definitely stay here when passing through in the future. The rate reflects the Passport America rate, which is only good for one night.

As the other reviewers stated, this is a beautiful clean park. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The sites are huge, with nice concrete parking pads and small concrete patios. I had only one disappointment, and I will take part of the blame for that. We were escorted to our site, which turned out to be a side by side site. As you probably realize this puts the driver's sides of two adjacent rigs very close together. I HATE side by side sites. I should have asked for a different site (many others were available), but I didn't. So, if you don't want a side by side site, just tell them ahead of time, and I am sure you will be accommodated. The park location is excellent, just far enough off the interstate that noise is not a problem. We enjoyed walking to the Wal Mart, about .3 miles away. We visited this park over the Memorial Day weekend, thinking that it was not the sort of park to attract families on a holiday weekend. We were right! It was wonderfully peaceful! Another big plus, is that washing of rigs is permitted. The water is soft enough that water spotting was not a problem. The laundry room was the nicest we have encountered in 25 years of RVing and nearly 4 years of full timing. Very clean, with reasonably priced machines, and a television. We will definitely return!

We found this to be a very pleasant campground. It is set among lodge pole pine, with views of the Sawtooth Mountains. The Salmon River runs adjacent to the campground, and can be heard from much of the campground. Only a few sites have views of the river. The roads and spurs are paved, as is the area around the picnic tables and fire pits. Each site also has a leveled tent pad. Overall, the facilities are excellent. Water is by hand pump only. When I filled a bucket, the water didn't look very clean. I am sure it is safe, but I would bring my own water for cooking and drinking. The vault toilets are in modern concrete buildings. They are spotlessly clean and very fresh smelling. There are no showers in the campground, although showers are available near Redfish Lake. The roads are easy to navigate for big rigs. Many sites will accommodate a 40' motorhome with toad. Our site handled our 40' motorhome, LARGE toad, and motorcycle with room to spare. Of the campgrounds in the immediate area, this seems the best suited for larger RVs. Some sites are not as level as they could be- we ended up with both front wheels of our motorhome off the ground. Most sites are well separated, but there is relatively little undergrowth for privacy. The lodge pole pines will provide minimal shade. You can hear the traffic on the highway, but we didn't find it objectionable. We were pleasantly surprised to have decent Verizon cellular service. Internet access thru our aircard was intermittent, but better than nothing!This location is less than 3 miles from Redfish Lake. There is a dump station available near Redfish Lake, and another one near the ranger station, about 3 miles north of the campground. Both dump stations have a $5.00 fee, and drinking water is available at each. The town of Stanley is about 5 miles away, and has several restaurants, a small grocery, fuel, lodging, and post office. We will definitely return to Sunny Gulch when in the area!

Sites here are way too small. Our 40' motorhome had to be parked so that the front was only 6" from the trailer in front of us, and we were still barely out of the street. There was enough parking space for our large toad, but that filled up the site. We kept our shades pulled the whole time we were there, because you couldn't see anything but other RVs. We left our AC fan on all night, in a futile attempt to drown out the freeway and airplane noise. No way this park is worth $40- but that is Vegas! We won't stay here again!

The park is well maintained. It is conveniently located to casinos, restaurants, etc. There are a variety of sites, including many very large paved pull thrus. The paved area of our site was approximately 20' x 75'! Some of the smaller sites are nicely landscaped and shaded.

I think this is the nicest private campground we have ever stayed at, in more than 25 years of RVing! The park is very well designed and laid out. The sites are easy to back into, and the utilities are in the right spot. Pretty simple things, but so many parks can't seem to get it right. The entire park is very attractive and well maintained. It is literally an oasis in the desert! We enjoyed many walks around the lake. There are paddle boats and kayaks available at no charge. They currently have a promotion where you can get a free nights camping with every $25 in fuel purchases from Terribles stations. This allowed us to stay for free. Unfortunately, we had only made reservations for 3 nights, and they were very busy. We will definitely be back!
