This is an absolute "people sty". To call it a pig sty would be to denigrate pigs. This place includes a motel, restaurant, bar, store, etc. The RV portion includes a pool and play ground. The buildings look almost new. Someone spent a lot of money on this place and the either lost it in foreclosure or just totally unmanaged it. Such potential and such lack of management. They mow the grass and that appears to be it for the RV park. Many "permanent" units and one was just a dump. Obviously would not stay here again and if I wanted to stay at the lake I would dry camp down in the park. I know, why did I stay here - late in the day, etc.
It's an OK park for an overnighter, or an end of day situation. If heading north I'd try a park nearer one of the towns in that area. If heading south and it's not too late in the day I'd go closer to Salmon, ID. The trip over the pass (7000 ft) is slow and very curvy and tho only 50 miles to Salmon, it will take about 1 1/2 hours.
Nice friendly owner. Park is very small as are the spaces. Right off the road thru town, but still seems quiet. I probably wouldn't stay here again because the spaces are so tight. Must be a popular place tho because it was full-up on the first of October.
As noted, a neat, well maintained park, but it is tight and very poorly designed. Utilities are backward from the signed traffic pattern, and are on the extreme front or back end of the site. Also, they have recently (while I was there) placed very large rocks (boulders) at the very edges of the pavement, making the pull throughs very difficult for egress and exit because the pads are on a severe arch. I had to move one rock and barely missed another getting in and out. I would not stay here again.
Rate is for Golden Pass. Regular rate of $30 seems a little high since water is undrinkable. Park has a number of campsites but only one with hook-ups. It's about 1 mile in from I-15. The RV sites are mostly back-ins and, as marked, are very short. All hook ups are at the very rear. Its not well laid out or developed. It used to be run by a concessionaire, but now has a camp host with little support from BOR (Bureau of Reclamation). At $15 it's OK, at $30 I'd go somewhere else unless you are into boating or fishing. Weekdays are quiet, I imagine weekends might not be.
Really long pull through sites (although some back-in). I did not have reservations and was lucky to get a site due to fact that most sites have extended stay residents because to natural gas drilling activity in the area. Pull through sites have utilities on both sides. This resulted in some doubling up by the extended stay residents. Sites are quite wide so doesn't really seem that bad. Wind River View park looks the same but sites seem narrower. Definitely need reservations if staying in area. I would stay here again.
The rate is for electric only. Pool was closed, laundry, showers and toilets weren't working. Luckily I didn't need any of them. Strictly an overnight stop. A park next door looked better but I missed the drive way and was too tired to turn around. Management was polite and friendly though. Of course Rawlins isn't a destination place unless you have friends or relatives in the state prison. However, if you're here be sure to take a tour through the old prison - a real eye opening dungeon. Looks nice from the outside but the inside is baaaad!
Rate reflects weekly rate. Its an OK park, but its not like you have any other choices in the area. No amenities to speak of, about half the sites appear to be long term, and as noted before, length of site is barely long enough to include a small tow. Some road and train noise, but not excessive. Only about a half mile east of Hwy 34 and 85 intersection.
It is a nice, quiet little park. There is a great owner/host. There are no amenities to speak of, other than quail, doves and other birds, but a nice view. The owner hosts a happy hour and provides lots of info of the surrounding area. It is centrally located to a number of interesting areas. You can't beat it for the price. For some reason all parks in the area seem to be similarly priced. In most areas this would be a $25-30 per night park and they probably wouldn't be as well maintained. The sites are very roomy, which is unusual for parks in this price range. Due to the sharp angle of entry from the south, I would recommend entering from the north, i.e. park is on the east side of the road. In other words, take exit 63 off I-25 and go south vs taking exit 59 and going north.
Nice little hillside park on the lake. Water was down in October but still enough to boat, canoe, etc. About 3-4 miles from Ashland on Rte 66 to park entrance. Another 1 1/2 miles over some fairly sharp curves to RV park. Tent camping is across valley from RV park. Didn't have/need reservations in Oct. but park stayed about 70% full. Would probably need reservations during summer. Don't recommend taking RV over mountains to Klamath Falls by Rte 66 or Dead Indian Highway. Very steep and crooked.
Seems to be a fairly new park but rumor is that its fallen on hard times already and may not be available for short term stays in the future. Sites are clean but a little short for 40 + foot RVs. Doesn't leave room for a tow vehicle. Park was quiet even though a number of full time residents were here. OK for one or a few nights.
It's not a park for everyone. Most sites are 30 amp. Only a very few are 50 amp and seem to be "reserved" by people who work or volunteer here for the summer. Full hookups but "rustic" sites, i.e. no concrete. Beautiful setting and lots of history in the area. Not an overnight type place. Come here and stay awhile and see the sights, even if you don't shoot. If you do shoot it's got every kind of range there is. You don't need to be an NRA or WC member to stay here. But NRA or WC membership will allow free use of all ranges with nominal fees for shotgun events. It's about 5 miles from W. of Raton and the RV sites are about 2 miles of well maintained gravel road from the entrance to the RV sites.
