Why is my rating so low? It is a nice looking park with very friendly staff. But when you have a 38 foot MH with auto leveling system and you need to drive up on 2 boards and manually level, there is a serious problem with the design of the park! The pull-through sites, which we were in due to availability, are sloped so much that it is impossible to level. When I mentioned this to the staff that parked us, his answer was: "There was a guy down there parked for 2 years with none of his tires on the ground." Very unacceptable in our opinion. (Also MH manufacturers who state that tires should never be off the ground as it will adversely effect the frame and axle.) We would not return to this park nor would we recommend it to anyone for that reason.

Basic park, clean, friendly staff, easy and out dirt sites with several feet of grass between them. Good full hookups and Wi-Fi. We stayed here end of season and only one night was the park full. Very convenient to Bryce and Zion. There is no cell service, nearest gas is about 4 miles, and about 20 miles to get cell service or groceries. We would stay here again.

The rate is based on a weekly rate. Nice resort but not much going on. The resort was not full while we were here. Reason for not giving resort a 10 was their sprinkler system which came on morning and night. It got our coach wet each time which meant we had to dry it off or have water spots. They water so much that the grass is muddy and soaked. Site was cement with small lawn on 1 side and in the back and privacy between coaches with hedges mid window height. No outdoor table on site. The resort is about 4-5 miles from the "strip". We would stay here again because of distance between coaches and the security.

The rate was a weekly Good Sam rate less the $5 Good Sam coupon for an Executive site which was about 15 feet wider than the other sites. Others complained the sites were too close but we did not have that problem. Park was clean, good power, and a nice laundry. There did appear to be many RVs here for people working in the area, but this did not cause any problem for us. We would stay here again if in the SLC area.

If you want to stop somewhere just before crossing into Canada, this is the spot and the only reason we returned again this year. They charge a $10 "fee" to make a reservation and then credit it towards your stay. When I made the reservation she quoted me $22 if I paid cash upon arrival. The man at the desk told me there were no cash discounts for 50 amp but since she'd told me that, he would agree to it. The park is a gravel dust bowl where the wind blows very strong in the afternoons. Don't look for anything beautiful or usual at this park. We would stay again if we needed a stop before crossing into Canada.

Stayed here last year so returned. I was a little disappointed that despite having made a reservation several months earlier, the owner's son said he could not find it. They only have a few long 50 amp sites but one was available even without the reservation. The rate is a Good Sam rate less the $5 Good Sam coupon. The son did not know how to handle the coupon so charged my credit card the full price and told me to return when his Mom got there. I did and she gave me cash. With the reservation problem I will have to think twice about returning to this park.

Nice people, nice little park but more for local families than for travelers. We were here for 11 days as part of a Calgary Stampede caravan. The rate based on the 2 nights we came in early. Back in sites are adequate and we were lucky enough to get roof top satellite. The big negative was the power which was only 30 amp and went off 4 or 5 times for just enough time to stop the microwave clock. The road down into the park is very busy with people using the river. It is too far from Calgary or the parks. We would not stay here again.

This was a Good Sam rate less a Good Sam $5 coupon. We were very disappointed in this park. We had stayed across the street last year but now have a roof top satellite which we did not feel we could use there. We chose this more open Jellystone Park for that reason. The interior roads are in horrible condition, the sites are not very level, and some of the RVs and toads barely fit. It appears that the owner must not be on site and there is very little pride of ownership at this park. If in the area again we would not stay here, even if it means not having satellite, we would stay across the street.

We stayed here last year. This year we were given a site where we could not get roof top satellite, the pad was narrow, there was a big puddle of water which we would have needed to park in, and could not get out our door without stepping into a bush. I called the office from the assigned site and was given a choice of 2 other sites. We took the first one we looked at and everything was fine. A thunder storm came through the first night we were here and the tree at the originally assigned site had multiple small branches which had come down and would have landed on our motorhome. I agree with the high laundry price: $4 per load to wash and dry. That was the most expensive we have ever paid.

We stayed here last year and returned again because we enjoyed the park. We had a nice spot where we could get roof top satellite and plenty of room for our 38 foot motorhome and toad. There were several large pine trees between the sites which make them so close to the RV that you can not put out your window awning but it was not required with the shade. We did not have any mosquito problems where we were. Having full hookups for a week and still close to the NP was very nice. We enjoyed being able to open our windows without having any camp fire smoke which I am allergic to. If back to Yellowstone again we will stay here.

We stayed here last year and found this time the office staff was much more organized. We received the on-line booked site for a pull-through that we had requested. There is a 6 foot wide cement strip next to the RV pad and then another 6 feet of grass next to that making 12 feet between the RVs. Our site was easy to get in and out of and we had plenty of room for our 38 foot motorhome and toad. The only negative comment about this park that we have is the lack of speed limit enforcement. We would stay here again to visit friends who live in the area.

The rate was a Good Sam rate, less the Good Sam $5 coupon. We had a very long, 50 amp pull through site, but because of two large trees on either side, we were not able to get our roof top satellite. If we had not pulled forward as far as we did we might have gotten a signal. For 1 night we did not want to move when good cable TV was available for most channels except Fox. The park was quiet, clean and the rate was good, so we would stay here again.

The rate was based on a week's discount for a weekly minimum site with the tax included. They charge more for the weekends. The site was separated from the road by grass and tall pine trees. We requested a site where we could get DirecTV and had no trouble with our roof top mounted dish. There were no trees giving us any shade as a result. We only saw a couple of more sites in the park where roof mounted dishes could get a signal. The park was not full, most likely because of the high rate. We agree with all of the positive things said about the park. If we wanted to stay in Bend again we would come back. There is a 12 foot 10 inch height restriction on the road coming from the east so follow the park's driving directions to avoid it.

Very quiet at this time of year. We were the only ones in a 50 amp pull-through row. We did not notice highway noise when inside the motorhome. Our site was level, easy in and out, plenty of space between our site and the ones next to us, and power was good. Some sites have trees, but the one we were in allowed us to have satellite. I did not notice "tight" spots. This was a perfect stop traveling between West Memphis and Amarillo, and if traveling I-40 again we would return.

Wonderful park for adults but we did not see much for children here. We had reserved a river front site for 2 nights but had to change our plans several days before our stay and could not get a river front site. Our site was in the 3rd row back from the river but we could still see barges going up the river. It was one of the 3 concrete sites in that row but most of the concrete sites are river front. There were many fairly good size trees in this section but they appear to be placed so most sites, including ours, are able to get satellite. The parks Wi-Fi signals did not appear strong at our site but our Verizon air card worked well. We would return to this park.

Great park - We had a level, good power, and good satellite site. It was easy to get in and out. The park has good roads, is clean and well maintained. This was our second visit and we would return again.

The sites are approximately 60 feet long so most of the RVs over 35 feet have to park their vehicles sideways which makes the roads look narrow and congested, but there is plenty of room for RVs to enter and exit. The Wi-Fi was very good. They had closed half of the park and set up a Xmas light show which apparently interfered with our Verizon air card because it worked the first day when the lights were not set up, but our signal would come and go continually after that. We tried to figure out what the "front" part of the park was as mentioned by a previous poster but never could. We were back from the entrance but towards the front near the office, and there were other 40 foot RVs there and throughout the park. We had good satellite reception even with the trees. The water pressure was very low. Our site was level, power was good, and it was easy to get into and out of. On the Halloween weekend they had activities for the children. We did not find the 5 minute drive back out to TN 155 a problem and never heard highway noise where we were. We were surprised that the lady next door put out a drying rack one day with laundry on it but it was taken down that night. The laundry room was clean, and the washers and dryers worked well. The park now has cable. We would stay there again.

When we first drove in the sites looked like they would be unlevel because of the slope, but we pulled onto the site, and we were perfectly level. Park and sites were easy to get in and out of plus the power was good. Good satellite and cell phone reception. We agree with others this is a perfect overnight stop. The condition of the roads were good, and if it wasn't for the speed bumps we would have rated the park a 10. The park appeared to fill by 6 pm and would imagine during the busy time of year reservations might be required. We had made reservations online the day before and that required full payment. When we arrived the lady in the office had no knowledge of the reservation, but did not even want to see the paid receipt I'd printed off the internet. Apparently they don't get the information for a couple of days.

First I will make a couple of comments about the previous reviews that we found different. We were there for 4 days and do not have children but saw playground equipment, air pillow, swimming pool, game room and planned activities for the weekend that required a fee. The gate card deposit is only $10 and that is fully refundable when you turn the card in. We agree that the roads are in poor shape. The entry road does have large "pot holes" in the paving and the interior roads also have some rough spots. The sites are not level and after months of camping we had to purchase some boards to level the MH. We did notice that almost everyone had something under their tires no matter if they were a trailer or a MH. There are lots of trees so no satellite but there is good cable service, good Verizon air card, and AT&T cell phone. The park and site were easy to get into and out of. The park was filled on the weekend with many families and apparently it is that way most weekends. We noticed there were several trailers that were not occupied once the weekend was over. The following is the reason we could not rate this park any higher than we did: We had 50 amp service and when we turned on our heat pump our Voltage Monitor kept jumping from 110 to 132 and back down. We called Monaco to ask what was wrong and they told us it was the power source at the campground post. They advised we unplug and run the generator to confirm that the heat pump and our MH did not have any problems. Everything worked properly. We then told the office and they immediately sent someone down who checked both legs of the 50 amp plug in our spot #22. He was not able to check the plug with a "load" so was unable to see what was happening when one was put on the plug. He told us we had a "cheap" monitor and there was nothing wrong with their power. "You have a Surge guard so you will be fine." He told us our MH was just adjusting and not to worry. We only used the 30 amp hookup and never used the 50 amp plug. Sorry campground owners as you read this but after over 30 years of RVing and using this MH for 7 of the last 9 months we have never had a power problem like this. We are now at the next park and everything, including the Voltage Monitor, is working like it always has. Without this electrical problem we would have rated the park a 6.

Coming from the south the turn off of hwy 100 comes fast and there is a lot of traffic on this 2 lane road. After reading a previous review about a winding road we were a little leery of this park but the road off the main highway was newly paved and not bad. We would have rated the park higher but most of the sites are not level and the pull thrus are very close to each other. We had no trouble with our site. We were able to get level without any problem but the motorhome next to us had his back wheels and jacks up on several blocks. Despite all the trees we could get Direct TV but there appeared to be very few sites where you could. Our Verizon air card did not work well but the park's Wi-Fi was very strong. The park is located about 7 miles from the interstate and is very quiet. We were there on a week night and did not see any children nor did the cabins appear to be occupied. This appears to be more of a destination park rather than a stop for the night. It was easy to get in and out of with a 38 foot MH towing. Because of the unlevel sites we would probably look for another park if in this area again.

We spent two weeks here over the Columbus Day Holiday weekend and the one after it. We made our reservation 10 months before and were lucky to get the last 50 amp site. This campground is booked solid on weekends but during the week, when school is in session, there are lots of spots open. We agree with others that it is a wonderful place to stay to visit both MA and RI. Every attention to detail is made, from reservations to maintenance. We were surprised how quiet it is even when all the sites are filled and did not notice anyone around us not maintaining quiet hours. They were upgrading the sewer and cable TV system close to where we were, and upon check-in an apology was made about possible construction noise during the day. Our site was a back-in approximately 60 feet long and at least 25 feet wide with about 10 feet of grass between the sites. There was only one less than perfect item and that was an interior road that had some pot holes in it. We would recommend this park for everyone, from family use to senior use.

We had stayed here twice previously so did know that the park is heavily wooded, multi level, and has some tight roads and sites. We were escorted to our site and had to drive all the way through the park to reach our site and had no trouble with the turns even with a car in tow. Our site was #1 which was very long and easy to get in and out. The site was not perfectly level and when it rained the water pooled several inches deep in several spots. If returning to the Boston area we would stay here again.

We have a 38 foot motorhome and tow a car. We had no problem with trees scraping our RV or getting in and out of our pull-through site. The first day we were there was their Halloween weekend and it looked like every site was filled. We had called 3 weeks previously and were told they had just had a cancellation and had one "long" site by the pond that was available. Where we were there was a large grass area on each side of the paved pad and no one in front of us because we were across from the fishing pond. The two negative comments we have are that the site was sloped in front so we had to drive up on blocks to level and that there were only 4 washers and dryers for such a large park.

The first 50 amp pull-through we were given was plenty long but the hook-ups were in the middle of the site and the front of the site sloped so much there was no possible way for a 38 foot motorhome to get level. When I went and asked for another site I was told "I had no idea that site was not level". We requested another site and that one was level but we had a tree in front which would have caused us to drive over grass to get out and there was a sharp metal grill setting above ground that would have destroyed our tires so we had to back out. We did not use their cable and we did not have any problem with the electric service where we were. If in the area again we would look for another campground.

The site we were in was in the back of the park, very long, no trees for good satellite reception, and looked like a grassy field. It was easy to get in and out of, but there were holes in the site which we needed to avoid in order to get level. There was 50 amp service and two sewer hookups so a long hose was not needed. One of the interior roads was in bad condition and the others were fair to good. We would return if in the area again.

They now have cable TV. We requested a site where we could get satellite and at check in I was told the originally assigned site could not get it but we were moved to one where we could get it. "If not we now have cable TV". The satellite did not work. Our site sloped down so much we had to put several blocks under one wheel. The roads leading to the park are narrow country roads but the park was easy to get into.

We were here on a Sat. and Sun. night. The park was full on Sat. with lots of young families. On Monday morning, very, very early there were a lot of vehicles leaving the park apparently going to work. Our site was behind a cabin with no one next to us nor in front of us. The site was level but we had to drive up an incline to both get into it and out of it. This park has many large trees so getting satellite was impossible and there was no cable. It did appear to be a very popular park for local families. The road leading to the park is very narrow. We stayed here to go to the Kentucky Derby Museum and if in the area again we would return.

Have to agree with the previous comments about the price being high for what there is. The long sites were level and the power was good plus it was easy to get in and out of. The train tracks are elevated and you do know when the train goes by. Neither of us heard it at night. We did hear the airplanes and the highway. There is a restaurant but we did not check it out.

We stayed here for six nights and found it very convenient for touring. Nice paved sites but the grassy areas tend to flood with any rain. You enter the park through the Oceans of Fun entrance booth and this is a tight fit for large motor homes. It is very close to the interstate but despite this we did not find the cars bothered us. The landscaping is nice but the trees are still very small. The biggest negative is the laundry room which for a park this size only had 3 washers and 3 dryers.

We stayed in the back section. The interior roads have huge stones that are almost impossible to walk on. The owner was not the least bit friendly when we checked in. Took us back to our site but just drove through it and left without saying a word. There is nothing special about this park but it is adequate for a night or two.

You are about 12 miles from Albertsons and it is a drive to downtown. We don't like speed bumps and there are several large ones inside the park. It is easy in and out for big rigs. We also did not find the high grass and weeds mentioned earlier but if you want something other than desert landscape this is not the park for you. We had made a reservation for a patio site and the one we were given was level and at the end of the row with no one in front of us or to the side blocking the views. The water and power were good and it is very quiet with no highway noises. We used a Verizon air card but did notice the campground Wi-Fi signal was very weak at our site. Some of the sites are not real level in this park and people had wood blocks under their wheels but we did not see any sloping so much that one could not get level. We would stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here only for the purpose of going to Acoma for the Pueblo tour. In addition to the weeds which make it almost impossible to get in and out of your door or to hook-up, the 50amp power would barely run one A/C without anything else, including the refrigerator, running on electric. We would not stay here again and would plan our travels to stay the night elsewhere when traveling I-40 in NM.

I rated this park lower than a 10 only because of the airplanes which will wake you several times each night and the side by side hook-ups. The first night we had no one assigned next to us but the second night we did, and with slide outs there is little room between the RVs. I fail to understand why when parks are not full, sites are assigned next to each other, especially when they are side by side hook-ups. The park is easy in and out, clean, friendly owner,etc., as others have posted.

The gravel road to the entry is in very bad condition with many potholes. The entrance road is only in fair condition but inside the park the roads are fine. The site was long and level but nothing except gravel. The mentioned trains run about every 10 minutes with only a slight decrease in the number during the night. I put in ear plugs and was able to get a good nights sleep, but my husband who has impaired hearing was awakened several times during the night. There appeared to be several "long term" residents but their sites were maintained.

We have stayed here in full hookups sites which were accessed directly from the interior roads, but this time requested a 50 amp W & E which required that we go back out to the access road, through a gate, and over a rough drop. The site was nice and long, plenty of space between us and the next RV, but because of the Oleander bush near our door the site was very narrow. We would return if in the area but might request a different site other than 45.

We spent one night and our site was on the top level just before it headed down a steep drop into the middle section. The cable at our site was so poor we could hardly see the picture so used the roof antenna. We checked the connection at the next site and it was better but still snowy. Used our Verizon card and did not try their Wi-Fi. Even with a map it is very confusing getting into your site as there is no sign saying which sites are down a particular road. We managed just fine because I got out and checked the site number but people continually were going down the wrong way to find their site. We were far from the pond and had no mosquitoes and could only see the tops of the trains which were at the lowest of the three levels. The trains ran day and night and you could barely hear them where we were--they did not blow their whistles. The sites were several feet longer than our 38 foot MH and when we parked the car next to it, where you are supposed to, there wasn't much room between it and the slide out. There isn't much else in this area so we would probably stay here again but only for a night or two.

There are only 12 pull thru spots in this park. The back-in sites around the perimeter are for "permanent or semi-permanent" renters and they were almost all occupied. The pull-thru sites were plenty long for our 38 foot MH and toad but very hard to get into because of telephone boxes and trees. The laundry was adequate and clean but extremely hot even with the A/C on. The power was adequate and there was good cable. The hook-ups worked fine for us because our power is in the rear and our sewer is mid-coach. We will not stay here again if in the area but will go to the RV park at the Casino.

Agree this park is very hard to find. You have to turn before the Auto Wash and it looks like you are turning into a parking lot. We saw another RV turning so followed him and we both had to go through a rough dirt field to reach the park. The office appears very disorganized. I'd made a reservation online and had to call a week later to see about changing the dates. The lady I spoke to was to busy to speak with me and said she'd call back. I had to call back again only to find she was still to busy even though I told her other reservations were pending on the one here. The park was clean, sites were long and level, and the cable was good. There isn't a lot of room between the sites. They had a sign board outside the office saying pull-thrus were only available for one night so reservations are probably needed. We would stay here if in the area again.

This campground is just off the Interstate and behind a gas station but very quiet and we never heard either. There are large trees but not all of the sites have them and those under the trees appear to be here for more than a few nights. You check in at the store for the gas station, and then are escorted to your site. It is a very easy in and out even for large RVs. Our site was long, 50 amp, gravel with grass on either side. We were not near the river, nor did we see any sites right next to it, but could see the river at a distance. The cable TV reception was poor but viewable. They have a restaurant that will deliver pizza or burgers to your site. While we were here they had a BBQ contest, music, and a quilt show, but we did not participate. The campground is on the Snake River so would advise a reservation especially on the weekend. If in the area again we would return.

Rate was for a 50 amp full hookup, pull-thruough site with a KOA discount. This is a small, very clean and friendly campground located about 2.5 miles from town and the Oregon Trail Center. The entry into the campground is over a very short narrow bridge and the turns in the campground are tight, but we had no trouble with our 38 foot MH towing. Some of the sites are very close together and it will depend on the size RV next to you, how crowded you feel. We stayed 3 nights and the first night the campground was almost empty so we had no one next to us. The next 2 nights the campground was full: the first night a small camper and boat was hardly noticeable next to us, but the last night there was a large 5th wheel and we could feel the closeness. There is no TV or cable TV, but the Wi-Fi worked where our Verizon air card would not. If in this area again we would return, but also would make sure to make a reservation. We did not see any RV sites on the stream.

We had made a reservation, after arriving saw that one isn't needed here, and we were not told that the cable TV service for the entire town has been eliminated. After setting up I went back to the office and the lady told me she was surprised I wasn't told when the reservation was made. The very long sites are in a large grass field which appears to have had gravel put down a long time ago. The Wi-Fi signal wasn't strong but worked well but our Verizon internet did not. They only take cash or a personal check. The interior dirt roads are in fair shape and there is a 2 block long, dirt road leading into the park from the highway. It was a perfect place to stay to visit Fort Bridger SHS which is next door. We won't be returning to this area but would not hesitate to recommend it if cable TV or a credit card are not required.

Gravel, nice long pull-thurs, full hookups with 50 amp, Wi-Fi, and good cable. Easy in and out for even the largest RVs. We were in the 3rd row and didn't hear the highway noise but did hear trains during the night. The office is closed from 10 am to 1 pm but you can just take a site and return to register at 1 pm. If you arrive after 9 pm there is an honor system box to register. The showers are entered through the office so they have limited times but restrooms are open 24/7. There is nothing beautiful about this park but we would return again for a night.

The park is located on the south side of town, but Safeway and museums are only a couple of miles away. The entry and exit roads are one way, long, and narrow so you have to pull way past the registration area when checking in. We saw several RVs blocking the entry road and someone out on the highway that couldn't enter. We were in the back section which had several large trees, but not one at every site. The back section is separated from the front section by a dead end public road. The interior roads were fair and our site was long enough for our 38 MH and toad but not very level. The sites were close and we felt like sardines packed in. The water, power, and cable TV were good. We did not use their Wi-Fi but the signal appeared good. The girl registering me was more preoccupied with talking with fellow employees than checking us in. We probably would not stay here again, but would check out the KOA.

Great park: has level sites, easy in and out even with 38 foot MH towing. It's well maintained,has activites for children, is quiet with friendly staff and a very clean laundry room. They do charge $2 a night for cable TV which was very good. The sites are well maintained gravel and have grass inbetween them. There are not many trees. We were here for 5 nights to explore the area's history. We would return if in the area.

The positives: very long full hook-up, pull-through, 50 amp sites, pool, and mini-golf. The negatives: very poor interior roads, especially the paved exit road, no cable TV but can get the basic stations with antenna except CBS doesn't come in well, and dirty laundry floors with poor funcitioning laundry machines. It took 10 minutes for the washers to fill. There are some large trees in the park, but they gave no shade for the long 50 amp pull-through sites. Our site was level but had a big hole at the front of it. The park has an entry and an exit road and our site was off the exit road which requires you to drive through the entire park to exit.

Agree this is a beautiful park which we have stayed at several times before. There are several negatives for this park: it is way over-priced, some of the turns to get to the site are tight for a 38 foot MH, and even with a pull-through site we could not get out without backing up so had to hook the "toad" up in the road. If you want 50 amp full hookup service and a pull through there aren't any other options without the patio swing which we never used.

Owners work very hard to make your stay enjoyable. She provided all sorts of suggestions as to what to do. They keep the park very well maintained. It is a small park and we had a very long pull-through site with full hook-ups and cable TV. There is a stream that runs through the park. The reason I didn't give it a 10 was because there are trains that run once or twice a day right behind the park, and there is also a rodeo grounds behind the park.

Nice small park with long, level, pull-thru sites. It is located along highway 93 but our site was far enough back that the only road noise we heard was from a little traveled local road that ran behind our site. There is also a train that runs close to the park but does not blow its horn and we did not hear it at night. The large trees, mowed grass, and flower beds though out the park have great eye appeal. We had made a reservation and glad we did because each of the 3 nights we stayed the park appeared full. The only negative we found was that getting out of the park and going south you have to cross a four line highway which has a lot of fast traffic but if you stay across the highway at Jelllystone you'd have the same problem going north. We would stay here again.

Nice campground with long, level, pull-thru big rig sites located in the meadow. There are also some sites in the trees. The roads and campground are well maintained with grass between the sites. The park is off the highway via a paved road so it is quiet. We would have given it a 10 except for the expensive price and no cable TV.

I find the last review very hard to believe! The site we were given was sloping so much to the side that we could not level our Motorhome either automatically or manually; the site also sloped severely to the front. After checking out several other sites and bringing a list to the office, they reluctantly let us move to another site which was on the level. There are 60 monthly sites and these are in the level area of the park. The park has two major roads on two sides and there is a lot of traffic which, if assigned to a site near the road, could be very noisy. Our cable TV service was good with clear reception. There was no sewer cap at the site we moved to, so we took one from a vacant site to use since we do not keep a sewer hose hooked up. The laundry room was one of the worst we have seen. The floor was so dirty that we got a broom and swept it. For a park this size there were only 5 washers and 5 dryers. We agree to look at the directions on Dicks web site and follow the trailer signs. You pass under a railroad bridge and this road does not look like you are going in the right direction. We have Verizon internet which worked well, but did notice that from our site the signal for Dicks Wi-Fi was not very strong. The rate was much lower than other parks we have stayed in, and the condition of the park went along with the rate. Having said all of these negative things, if we were in the area again, and only after being guaranteed a site on the level, we would stay here again because the park and the sites were easy to get into and out of, and the power and cable TV were good.

We agree this is a great RV park close to a National Park and not like the campgrounds in Yellowstone. We had a premium pull-through site which gave us free Wi-Fi, but after reserving this site, we got a Verizon Mobile Broadband account, which worked perfectly, so never used the free Wi-Fi. The site was very long with room to spare after parking our 38 foot motorhome and toad. The trees at most of the sites were small and still dormant, but the weather was cold so we weren't looking for shade. Very easy in and out of both the site and the RV Park.

This is the Senior Pass rate. We stayed here for 14 days and had previously stayed here. They have removed trees and limbs making it easy to get in and out of the sites even with our 38 foot motor home. When checking in I was told that if there were any limbs that we felt would rub on any one of our four slide outs to come and tell them, and they would come and remove them. The 50 amp power was good the entire stay. We have a Verizon internet card and it worked 95% of the time from our site. It is great to have this quality campground in a National Park. We would return to this park.

We stayed here in September, and our review is still the same...no problems with broken power boxes, quick check-in, and the dinner special at the Hilton using the 20% coupon was very good. Our first visit was in a 34 foot 5th wheel and this time we have a 38 foot Motor Home and neither time did we have trouble leveling the RV. Can't comment on the condition of the bathrooms for either visit since we never use them because we have a great one in our RV. We would stay here again.

Agree with the other excellent reviews. We called at noon and planned to arrive after the office closed at 6 pm. There was a map to our site waiting for us. We stayed for 5 nights and were told staying 4 nights gave us the 5th night free. The park was not very full and they assigned sites with vacant spaces in between unlike other parks that pile you all up in a row. There is no doubt in our mind that this is the best park in the Reno area, and we will stay here again when in the area.

The rate is the quoted daily rate. We were here for about two weeks for service on a new coach sold by Beaudry and received free nights with purchase of coach. We were not aware of any security issues but we never leave anything outside no matter what park we are staying in. The restaurant onsite was very good. The laundry was clean. Each spot has a cement slab with table and chairs, the site is rock, and there is a paved area for a vehicle. The sites are long and easy to get in and out of with a 38 foot motorhome and toad. When there was a leak in an under ground water pipe they came immediately and fixed it. There is a Fry's grocery store and shops a mile from the park. If we were in the area we would stay in this park again.

This was our second visit this winter. The first time was a one night stop and the next was for 3 nights. We had no trouble with the pull-through site and did not have to disconnect our toad from our 38 foot MH. I would have rated the park a 10 if it were not for the side by side hook-ups which at this rate, I feel are a real negative. The highway noise did not bother us, but there is train noise and especially during the night the repeated whistle blowing did wake me a couple of nights. The park caters to groups and was almost full when we arrived the second time so we were glad we'd made a reservation. They give you a card and when you have stayed 6 nights the 7th night is free. They do give you lots of little perks like the free breakfast, free newspaper, cookies and treats for your pets which other parks at this rate do not. They clean the sites after you depart and the entire park is very clean. We would stay here again.

Agree this is a very nice campground: the best KOA we've been in. It is one of the best maintained parks we have seen lately. It was a pleasure to see vacationing people rather than have the park filled with people living here year round. Every person working here was friendly and went out of their way to help. We didn't have any smells as mentioned above and had our windows open for 3 of the 4 days we stayed here. The BBQ rib dinner that was delivered to our site was on the expensive side for what you got, but it was tasty. The laundry room is large and immaculate. We originally had planned to stay for 2 nights but ended up staying 4 nights. It is located halfway between Artesia and Carlsbad which is about a 20 minute drive either direction. To Carlsbad Caverns it took about 50 minutes, and to Sitting Bull Falls around 1 hour but we were aware of this and for us the drive was enjoyable rather than a problem. If in this area again we would stay here.

The sites are level, the park very clean, it's easy to get into and out of the park and sites with a 38-foot motorhome and toad. We have stayed in Amarillo before and this park out shines the rest. The trees are all small and were dormant, but it was winter and the park is new. They have two prices $25 for over 25 feet and $20 under 25 feet. They have a value card you can sign up for, which gives you a 20% discount. We did not learn about it until the morning we were leaving when we purchased propane so could only use the discount on the propane and not the prior night's stay.

My sister lives in Tulsa and despite the poor reviews for this park she had stayed here and advised we also stay here. (I'd asked her to check out Cherry Hill after reading posted reviews and she told us it was an old park with old mobile homes, narrow roads, and in a very poor part of Tulsa). The sites are not wide but there was several feet between us and the privacy fences when we had all 4 slides out but no room for an awning which we did not need. The site was long and level with room to spare after parking our 38 foot MH and car. The laundry room was clean with lots of washers and dryers. There appears to be many "long time" residents here, but the park appears to be well maintained. Should we return to Tulsa we would stay here again.

After reading the previous reviews we were greatly surprised that this park wasn't at all what we expected. The interior roads are very poor with some large holes and several "teeth jarring" speed bumps. The sites are not level either front to back or side to side. The park was filled with "long time" residents as evidenced by large propane tanks. There is a security gate with a key card but the park is in the city, in what appeared to not be the best of neighborhoods with men hanging around outside the nearby convenience store. Our site was 87 feet long but it was obvious that it was designed to be 2 sites and thus was most unlevel. Yes, the office and the man who showed us to our site were friendly but that still could not rate this park any higher.

This was a Good Sam weekday rate: the rate is $5 more on the weekends. We'd stayed here 1 night 10 days earlier and if I'd written the review then I would have given it an 8 or 9, but this time the site they gave us was so unlevel that after 4 attempts both manually and automatically trying to level we went to the office and requested the perfectly level site we had on our first stay. The park itself was quiet but there is a great deal of traffic noise from highway 1604 which we only noticed with our windows open. The Wi-Fi is not free but we found our Verizon aircard to work very well. We had no trouble with all the trees in the park but you do have to watch them both on the roads and in your site.

This was a KOA rate for a Premium pull-thru site with a bay view for a week. We felt the turns were tight for a 38 foot MH and that was after unhooking the toad. DH objected to a large open storage area behind us that had tables and what looked like building supplies. There was a road directly in front of us with continual traffic, day and night, going to Pier 19 restaurant. The laundry room was small with only 4 washers and 4 dryers and no sink. There was another laundry which I was told was even smaller. This looks like the only campground in the area so that probably explains why the rate was higher than we felt the park warranted.

It was many years ago that we stayed here and now find the park is full of permanent or definitely long term residents. They have several huge bumps on the entry road which we didn't find the need for. We barely made the tight turns to our assigned site and with the car hooked up to our 38 foot Motor Home we just fit. There is no TV or cable and the 50 amp power was only 117 without running anything.

We stayed here for 32 nights and because we could not stay another 2 weeks were not given any free nights: the program for 1st time visitors is pay for 1 week and get 1 free, pay for 2 weeks and get 1 free, pay for a month and get 2 weeks free. No pay for 3 weeks and get 1 free which we found very strange, but that was the way it was. We frequently heard that this year because of the free weeks the park was fuller than it has been in the past 8 years or so. The pet section only had 2 spots for several days the first of February. We were fortunate to get tickets for everything we wanted to attended except for one singer. There are only so many seats and it is understandable that those who are here longer purchase tickets for their entire stay, thus short time visitors may not get any but we would not rate the park and 8 because of that. The sites are very long and wide so you aren't on top of the person next door. You park on gravel and there is a cement pad at the majority of sites. The power is good and they pick up trash at your site twice a week. There are park models and villa homes in the park but also large areas were there are only RVs. We were in the pet section and close to the wall on Hennesse Rd., but had no problem with any noise nor did we find the livestock odor bothersome. Everyone from the ranger at the gate to guest services and people in the park were very friendly. We saw them put down more gravel after the hard rains when ruts were in the sites that had recently been vacated. The entire park appears well maintained and very clean. We will most likely return for 3 months next year.

Very friendly at the desk. We had a reservation but arrived a day earlier and that was not a problem. The park is far enough off the Interstate that it is quiet but was easy to find and get into. There appears to be one section that either has permanents or long term rigs but we didn't see any problems with that area. Our site was long enough that we could pull through without unhooking our 33 foot 5th wheel but we did have to drive up on a board to level. We would stay in this park again.

We have stayed here before and will stay here again because of the convenient location. It is easy to find right off of I-80. The park is not the greatest. The sites are not level side to side even with them being paved and are not terribly long. We have a 33 foot 5th wheel and had to park our truck under the goose-neck to fit. Our site had a deep rut in the grass from people driving over it to get into the tight spot. For this price the Wi-Fi should be free but it is provided by a 3rd party at additional cost. The 30 amp power was not good enough to run our A/C along with anything else.

We agree about the park being easy to miss: turn at the drive way down the hill just before you reach the Hilton. We passed it and had to turn around in the Hilton parking lot. Our site was level side to side and we had no trouble raising the front of our 33 foot 5th wheel to level. The pull-through sites are in pairs, side by side with separate utility posts and much closer together than the back-in sites. It is a nice park with good Wi-Fi and cable TV service. They give you coupons for 20% off your bill at the Grill in the Hilton. We'd stay here again and would make a reservation based on how full the park was even in September.

The site was adequate and the Wi-Fi was good. The sewer was uphill so almost unusable. There are side-by-side hookups but the sites have a good space between them. The local TV channels listed in the park brochure are not correct and the person at the desk has no idea what the local channels are because he has cable at home. OK for an overnight stay.

A nice park with good roads and long sites. There was limited TV via antenna. Wi-Fi was free, but it had many restrictions as to what you could do, no downloads, etc, and how long you could use it. They said if it was used too much it would be shut down for 24 hours; and it did shut down while we tried to use it.

We had a full hook-up site which we requested when making a reservation but at the time we were told they would not guarantee more than W & E. The sites are on a hill and have shared hook-ups leaving no more than about 5 feet between the RVs. The sites are not very level side to side and drop off sharply at one end which makes the usable site much shorter. We heard others complain that they could not get level but with blocks we were able to level our 33 foot 5th wheel. There was so little room at our site that we could not fully extend the stairs of our 33 foot 5th wheel. There is limited local TV by antenna with marginal reception. Wi-Fi would not work from our trailer but we could go outside and it would work.

We had a nice long, full hook-up, pull-through site. The sites are nicely spaced so there is lots of room between each site. The interior roads were only in fair condition and the dead tree at our site could have been removed making it easier to exit. We would definitely return to this park.

There could be a big problem with this park if there are many staying here, because the pull-through sites are designed for 2 RVs. Our site with the stairs out and no slide on that side, only had about 10 feet for the other site. There was good free Wi-Fi which reached much further than the previous review. As mentioned there is no sewer for the pull-through sites. The park has some nice big trees and grass but the inside roads had lots of pot holes. There is plenty of room for big rigs.

We were given a pull-through site, created by the owner by having us drive through the site behind us. We had no trouble with the Wi-Fi and the cable worked well. The two negatives about this park were the road in the park had lots of pot holes, and there is no laundry in the park. You have to go into town and use the one at the hotel. We had stayed at the Muni park on two previous trips but would stay at this park again if we returned because it is not totally shaded, price is good with a Senior discount, and has cable and Wi-Fi.

This park is in great condition and the location is beautiful with views of mountains and year round snow. There is a 1/3 mile driveway down to the office and the sites are down from there not to far from a lake. The roads and pads are very well graveled and the sites are level with well kept grass in between them. There is good free Wi-Fi but downloading and uploading are only available from 9 pm until 4 am. There are no sewers but they have a dump station. It is very easy to get into and out of the long sites and with our 33 foot 5th wheel and truck there was still lots of room.

We had expected this campground to be a big gravel pit from previous posts and that Wi-Fi would be available free but this was not the case. There are several rows of pull-thru sites under the pine trees and a large area out in the open with sites very close together. We had a long pull-thru under the trees which was easy to get in and out of but it was very un-level front to back. The Wi-Fi was $10/night so we passed on that. The sites weren't on top of each other and because there were only 7 of us they assigned sites with vacant ones in between. There are no sewers but the dump station was easy to get into and out of. If we were to return to Watson Lake we would stay here rather than the Downtown RV Park where you were so close you could hardly open your door and there were no trees.

We changed our mind about staying at Sourdough because of the rain, felt under the trees it would be very muddy, and we wanted cable TV. The Wi-Fi is free for 45 minutes and they instruct you to use it all at one time or else you won't get back on. The service worked very well at our site. The sites are tight to get in and out of because of the trees between them. Our full hookup, pull-through site was just long enough for our 33 foot 5th wheel and truck and it was level. We would probably stay here rather than Sourdough if we wanted cable TV and Wi-Fi at our site.

We stayed here in our 33 foot 5th wheel and it was very easy in and out, plus our pull-through site was long enough to easily accommodate both the truck and trailer. The big problem here was the water: because of the iron in the water we were advised to run the hose for 15 seconds before hooking up but even after running it much longer it never ran clear and tasted bad. Two of the three nights: the highway traffic was loud most of the night. Our site was level, Wi-Fi worked but was very slow, and there was cable TV. The park wasn't very full and sites appeared to be assigned with an empty next to most people which was very nice. We'd made a reservation the first of the year and had to pay in full at that time. Upon check-in we were told even with the end of the season rates ours was $3 per night less and the extra night we were requesting would be at that lower rate we'd been charged.

We had a Super pull-through site with a river view because of the small trailer parked between us and the river. There was plenty of room for our 33 foot 5th wheel with the truck parked in front of it. When we arrived the people next to us had their awning out and there wasn't much room between it and our large room slide when it was out. The cable TV worked but the picture had some lines through it. The main negative was the Wi-Fi at our site which didn't work all of the time and was very slow. They are in the process of removing some large trees at some sites which will make those sites less tight. Apparently there is a lot of iron in the water in Fairbanks and the laundry had signs posted not to wash light colored clothes and to only use cold water. The office said there shouldn't be any problems just using cold water. We did choose to do laundry but did have a white bath mat that got some large stains on it despite only using cold water. We had dinner at Chena's and the food was very good.

We could not get our 33 foot 5th wheel level and still have room for the truck with the first site we were given so we found another one and requested they change us. The more it rained the worse the sites got with many having standing water in them, the low spots in the roadways had large puddles, and deep potholes developed on one of the exit roads. There was no WiFi at our site but most of the time you could get on in the laundry room. The TV is by antenna but some of the stations would go off the air while we were watching them. The laundry charges were the most reasonable we have had but half of the washers were out of order and half of the dryers only worked on low heat. There were more long term residents here now and storage under and around their RVs tended to be unsightly. The park is in an older neighborhood with an old Mobile home park down the street. We did not hear of any problems in the park but did see police cars several times in the neighborhood the week we were there. We had stayed here twice before and knew that the sites are not very long nor wide but the park is clean and quiet except for occasional airplanes. We felt this park is the best choice in Anchorage so we’d stay here again but can’t rate it any higher.

There are only 5 sites in this park that have sewer but there is a dump station. We'd made our reservation more than 6 months before arriving and did get a site with sewer but they will not guarantee that you will get one even by reserving early. On one side of us there was only about 5 feet between us and the next RV and on the other there were some trees but not much more room with slides out. It was easy to get in and out of the site with our 33 foot 5th wheel. WiFi worked well at our site. The main negative about this park is its location just feet from the Talkeetna Spur Highway on one side the the Alaska Railroad on the other side. While we were there we heard 4 trains during the day and the earliest one was at 5:30 am. The highway has very little traffic on it during the late evening and night. The small town, which was crowded with tourists and has limited parking, is about a half a mile walk and consists mainly of shops and places to eat. We would stay here again if we wanted to fish with Mahay's or take one of their Jet boat trips.

The park is big and open with some pull-in or back-in sites close to the creek. The remainder of the park is basically a big open area with sites that are much closer together than those along the creek. The first site we had was full hookup and the power wasn’t the best but after requesting another site for our next night, due to being kept up until 1 am by the people next door who ignored the 10 pm quiet time, we had water and electric only and the power was much better. Both of these sites were along the creek. The WiFi and cable worked well at both of the sites. As mentioned before the road to the park is about ¼ mile through a residential area on a gravel-dirt road. The road got worse with mud and potholes during our stay because of constant rain the two days we were there.

This is to let others know this campground is not big rig friendly and does not have the hookups shown on the internet. We had made a reservation for a pull-through site for 3 nights based on information we'd read on the internet. This information said there were TV hookups, water, and electric- full hook-ups. When we went to check in we were told there was central water, a dump, and no TV for $42, and we were shown a spot which was so tight we doubted we could open our slide outs. The lady was very nice and after looking at the printed information I showed her she suggested we cancel our reservation and call Heritage if we wanted full hookups and cable. She said she was going to tell the owner about the incorrect information that had been posted on the web.

If it were not for the price and some road noise we'd rate this park a 10. The Spit W Spots wireless Internet is free for one hour at your RV site and when that hour is over you just click the red Free box again and get another hour free. If you want a faster connection there are options to pay for that. We have stayed at 2 other parks in Homer and agree that this one is the best because of the ease getting in and out, the level sites, the views,the full hookups, cable TV and free wireless Internet.

We made our reservation in May for our July stay and we were very disappointed in this park. The site they gave us, # 11, was impossible for us to level our 33 foot 5th wheel. The worst part was the site had a pen with 4 adult and 9 Husky puppies directly behind us. The odor from the dogs made it impossible for us to open even a window. The dogs whined and barked from early morning to late evening and there was a constant parade of people going to see the puppies. The park was full with no vacancy so it was impossible for us to request another site. When I mentioned to the office staff that our site was very bad because of the dogs she said others had also complained when assigned that site. We felt that with a 2 month old reservation for 2 nights we should have not been put in a spot they obviously knew was less than desirable. The park is very small with all back-ins but there is a small grass area between the sites. The back part of the park has employee housing and there were about 8 RVs there for people employed by the Lodge or RV Park. We were told that the Internet is only free in the lodge which is up hill from the park and if we wanted it at our site it was $2/hour. The only view of the Kenai River is either from the lodge deck or by walking down a very steep road to the river. We did have an excellent dinner in the Lodge's dining room but would never return to this park nor would we recommend it to others.

As stated before this is a large gravel and treeless park but it does have some positive things going for it. You can wash your RV and vehicles at your site, they have freezer space you can rent for your fish, and there are full hookups. We had a super site which was wide enough for slide outs and awnings and was more than long enough for our 33 foot 5th wheel and truck. The sites are easy in and out for even the largest RVs. The cable and Wi-Fi (at your site) both worked well.

This is a nice park with lots of trees which provided some privacy between our site and the next. The site was easy to get into, long and fairly level. There are full hookups with good power. There is no cable and the Wi-Fi doesn’t work at the sites but there is a “hot spot” for it. They offer a Reindeer stew dinner for $10 and a All-U-Can - Eat Sourdough breakfast for $12 but we chose to eat elsewhere. We will return again the end of August.

Long gravel lot on a slope. We were directed to the top of the slope where we had some beautiful views of Kluane Lake until a caravan starting filling up the lower spots. There are no sewer hookups and the location of the dump made it difficult for larger RVs to use. There was no cable, and no Wi-Fi at your site. They advertised 32 foot wide spots but these spots are for opposite facing vehicles so if someone pulls in next to you there is about half that. The rate is high for what you get but there is very little else in the area.

The park is gravel and dirt behind a mini market where you choose your own site. There are some trees but they don’t provide much shade. The site was easy to get in and out of with our 33 foot 5th wheel but the sites weren’t very level, . The power was barely adequate to run a microwave. There were no sewer hookups but they had 2 dump stations which were easy to use. There was no cable and no Wi-Fi. The Westmark Inn next door has a dinner theater for $42 per person. The park was fairly full by the dinner hour. We would stay there again if we wanted to stop at that time of day.

Very nice park with well maintained grassy sites. Our 33 foot 5th wheel and truck just fit in the assigned site. There is space in between the sites so you don't feel closed in. Depending on where you are in the park there are nice views of the mountains. The owner is very helpful when you check in and tells you about all the things in the area. The sites are level and have full hookups plus cable. The Wi-Fi is $5.28/night or $12.92/3 days. You are asked if you have a portable heater that you will be using and if so they charge and additional $3.50 plus tax per day. They have a nice selection of items in their gift shop.

The views of the mountains are fantastic, but it is no more than a big gravel lot with full hookup sites that are not the most level. The people who run it have no idea what they are doing as far as placing big rigs in tight spots and smaller trailers in the larger spots. We had only 4 feet between us and a large motor home. We had been in our assigned spot for 5 hours when a young girl came to say we should be in the next spot with the site number on the passenger side rather than the driver’s side and she wanted us to move or re-register. I told her that her grandmother said the hookups and sign were on the driver’s side and she replied “she doesn’t know what she’s doing.“ They were so close that their furnace kept us awake all night. The cable is limited and the reception poor on most of the stations. The advertised free Wi-Fi did not exist- “it doesn’t work and we can’t do anything about it”. We were told that the antenna won’t reach even 50 feet behind the building to the RV Park when working. I suggested they change their advertisement to read that the Wi-Fi only works in the laundry room.

A little park with full hookups behind a motel right on the Yukon River. Unlike previous review we had no trouble with the management. There is no cable nor Wi-Fi and the roads are full of potholes. There are only 5 pull-thru sites and 3 of them were filled for the night. Considering the location this park is not a bad stop along the Klondike Highway

This is a nothing park with only 15amp power and no sewer connections, but is also the only park in the area for visiting Mayo and Keno unless you drive up to Mayo. It is no more than a field with grass and gravel where you pick your own spot. It is an easy in and out for big rigs. The Wi-Fi only works in the restaurant and not at even the closest sites. If we felt we wanted to stay in the area we’d stay here again but that would be the only reason.

We had made a reservation for a pull-through site and confirmation said they would try. Caravan was coming in the 2nd day of our stay and had all the pull-through sites taken. The back in site we were given worked for our 33 foot 5th wheel but the sites are right on top of each other with the neighbor's sewer connection right outside our trailer door. The sites are not angled so they are not very easy to get into. There was a good main entrance road but the other road to the park was full of large potholes. When it rains the sandy dirt becomes very muddy. There was good cable but the Wi-Fi leaves a great deal to be desired. We were told at check in it is good for only checking e-mails. I was able to get on to the Wi-Fi for the adjacent Dawson RV Park when the one for this park was not available to access the internet. We have stayed at 2 other parks in Dawson City and this one is no better nor no worse. If we were to return we would not stay here. We would once again stay at Gold Rush which is downtown and walking distance to most everything.

We had stayed here in 1998 and after staying at Pioneer in 2001 felt this park was the best choice so made a reservation requesting an easy in and out site for our 33 foot 5th wheel. We were given site 88 which was not only about 70 feet long there was a lot of room between us and the next RV and very easy to get in and out of. The Wi-Fi worked well from our site and we had no trouble with its speed. There is cable and it provides lots of stations. The park has lots of trees and the interior gravel roads are well maintained. The only problem we had was with the water hookup which leaked because the hose bib was to close to the handle. The laundry was clean but pricey at $3 per wash load and $1.25 for 25 minutes on the dryer. The park was filled each night and for those wanting to stay here a reservation is a good idea.

The views from the campground give this park a higher rating than the park itself. The sites are long and easy to get into but we had to find just the right spot in our site to get our 33 foot 5th wheel leveled. There are no sewers but they do have a dump. The Wi-Fi worked well from our site but with heavy clouds it did go down for a while. There is no cable or TV. Now in mid June most of the waterfront sites are flooded by the lake.

This is one of the most poorly maintained parks we’ve ever stayed in. The owner is helpful when there is a problem but she needs to fix many things in this park. Between our site and the next there was sewage all over the ground when we pulled in. The owner came immediately and cleaned the ground then put some acid in the hole. The site was assigned shortly after and they dumped their gray water into another sewer drain several feet from the one that had been cleaned. All of the water started pouring out all over the ground. The owner came once again and put more acid down both of the drains and said “my snake is at the other campground" (Dawson Creek- Northern Lights) and told the man he could move because he could not use the sewer. There are cable wires all over and our site had a 3 way splitter, so two adjacent sites could hook up to cable, but the cable channels were all snowy. The sites are fairly level in spots but have deep ruts in other spots. Wi-Fi signal was poor to non-existent at times. This park does get a lot of business each night because it is only one of two parks in Fort Nelson and is large.

We stayed here once before so knew it was nothing more than a big gravel parking lot. Wi-Fi worked fine at our site despite a low signal, power was OK, and water pressure was adequate. This park is very clean, sites are level, and the owner maintains it very well. In addition to the looks of the park the major problem is that the pull-thru sites are not 25 feet wide they are about 15 feet wide and when you step out of your door the hookups including sewer are right there. The pull-thru sites do fill up with big rigs by late afternoon. It is an easy in and out for our 33 foot 5th wheel. The park is walking distance to the Sign Post Forest, Visitor's Center, and the grocery store. This is the only park in Watson Lake that we could get to respond in order to make a reservation.

There are two sections to this park and we were in the nicer one which had more grass separating the sites. The back section appeared to have more dirt and less gravel. It was an easy in and out for our 33 foot 5th wheel but our pull-through gravel site wasn’t very level side to side. The power was good and there is cable TV. Despite a good Wi-Fi signal, I was not able to get any web pages or e-mail to open. I later learned that the system was down that day. I did not go to the Internet Lounge and try to get on there. The park is located right off the highway, so there is some road noise. We did not use the bathrooms so can not comment.

The location right on Muncho Lake gives this park a high rating despite its lack of amenities. It was easy to get in and out with our 33 foot rig, but our site was not level side to side. We had no one on one side and there was about 30 feet on the other side. Power is supplied by a generator, so 20 amp service is all there is. We had no problem with the water pressure and we had sewer. We knew if we wanted to stay at Muncho Lake and have some hookups we'd need a reservation. By mid-day all of the full service pull-through sites except one were occupied. There are only 5 of them. The park is behind a motel and cabins, and appeared clean and well maintained. The park is very expensive, we knew this before arriving, but it is also the only one in the area with hook-ups. They give you a 10 cents per liter credit on their fuel, which is 1.599 per liter, and a dollar off coupon on meals in their dining room. We would stay here again.

The location of the park is just off of the highway and there is a lot of traffic both day and night. We stayed here in a 33 foot 5th wheel and had no trouble getting in or out, the site was level, and we had good power. There is a lot of dead grass and weeds but it is located in a grove of trees. The swimming pool is lined with plastic and it was only half filled with water and filled with debris. It is the beginning of the season so maybe things will improve. There is Wi-Fi but it is not free. If we wanted to stop in this area again we would stay here again

Nice location right on Dragon Lake and away from highway noise. Easy in & out for our 33 foot rig. We would have given the park a higher rating except the gravel site was not level and we were not able to get Wi-Fi at our site. Pull-through sites do not have any trees or grass, just gravel.

The location of the park is behind a motel and the over-all appearance looks like a big gravel area with some trees and a grassy tent area. The sites were easy for our 33 foot 5th wheel to get into and they are about 20x60 and level. The park wasn't very full so most people had several sites in between them and the next person. If the park was full it would mean your neighbor would be right on top of you. The laundry and park were very clean. You are given a key to the laundry and washrooms which you leave in a deposit box when you depart from the campground. Ten TV stations are available by antenna and there is good free Wi-Fi. One of the interior roads has some large pot holes but the other roads appear to be in good condition.

We stayed here for two nights in our 33 foot 5th wheel and plan on returning in Sept. for a night. The sites were level and easy to get in and out of. We had cable TV but there were only about 5 stations. The Wi-Fi is not free - $4.95 for 24 hours and this is paid by credit card when you go online. The owner is very friendly and goes out of his way to make you welcome and answer your questions. The lawns, roads, and over-all appearance of the park did not appear as good as what we'd remember from our previous stays in 1998 and 2001 but we would not hesitate to recommend this park to others.

This is a clean park and friendly managers, but not the best for big rigs. We stayed 2 nights, in our 33foot rig, in a gravel pull-through, without any shade. There are very few pull-through sites and some of them would be very difficult for a big rig to get out of. The back section of the park is all back-ins with grass and trees which makes it much more appealing. Those sites appear to be for "long-term" stays. The free Wi-Fi worked well and there was a very basic cable selection. We would stay here again if in the area, but would also have a reservation with an RV our size.

This park's location is perfect for touring the Olympic Peninsula and taking the Black Ball Ferry to Victoria. We stayed here for 4 nights and found the park to have very few people staying there each night. The sights are not very level, the roads are in only in fair condition, and there appears to be some deferred maintenance in the park. Wi-Fi signal is poor at times but at other times worked just fine. The park is just off the highway and there is quite a bit of noise at all hours but it did not disturb our sleep. There are lots of trees and grass between the gravel pads. We would stay here again but felt the rate was very expensive even with a KOA discount.

We stayed here in our 33 foot 5th wheel. The park is clean, managers very friendly and helpful, sites level and easy in and out. There appeared to be mainly "long term" people there and all of the RVs were in "new" condition. We found the only negatives to be the road noise which did not disturb our sleep and that there was no free Wi-Fi.

We had stayed here 5 or 6 years ago and agree the park isn't in the same condition as it was then - but it is also older. The water faucet was putting out quite a bit of water when we pulled into the site and could not be turned off. Easy to enter pull through sites are very long with plenty of room for both our 33 foot 5th wheel and truck and still room to spare. The sites are narrow when adjoining RVs have their slides out. It is a small park and there are many "long term" residents. We never saw any "junk" around their sites but there were some items stored around some of the RVs. The pool was close to our site which resulted in quite a bit of noise at times. Interstate 5 is very close so there is also highway noise.

We stayed here in our 33 foot 5th wheel for 4 nights during their "Grand Opening" weekend. All of the planned activities had been canceled but we still received a 25% discount. There was a heat wave with temperatures in excess of 100 degrees but never a power problem. The resort was nearly empty most nights so don't know if it would be the same should it ever fill up. Wi-Fi and cable both worked great, staff very friendly and park very clean. It is a new park so all of the trees are very small. The design of the park is perfect for even the largest RV. The biggest negative is the highway noise - but we never heard it unless the windows, vents or doors were open or all was quiet in the RV and we were in the bathroom or near the door. We were on the opposite side of the park from the highway. If highway noise bothers you this park isn't for you. We also heard the train several times but it did not wake either of us. We missed the turn off on East Ave. but were able to drive through the shopping center to the park. Apparently many people don't see the street sign hidden behind a tree and miss it. The road into the shopping center looks like the road you are on and East Ave. looks like an entrance to the shopping center.
