The office staff was friendly and welcoming. We used the laundry room and it was nice. The sandy dog park was big enough for dogs to actually run. The utilities worked fine. There were a lot of facilities that we did not use: swimming pool, golf course, spa, etc. Had we used those facilities this review might be more positive, but I doubt it. In our five years of full-timing, this is the worst park we have experienced. The site was narrow. The asphalt patio certainly smelled like asphalt, but it was in extreme disrepair --- cracked, uneven, patched with soft asphalt. Repairs (much needed) started every morning at 7:00 a.m. with a parade of noisy equipment rumbling down the street in front of us: back hoe, ditch witch, etc. One early evening a nearby fire hydrant malfunctioned resulting in a stream of water that was not fixed until the next morning. Our view was of a row of cabins and the cleaning crew who did little, but sit on golf carts and smoke cigarettes. We were surrounded by permanent residents who were for the most part unfriendly and in some cases a little scary. "Good mornings" from us were mostly returned with a stare, and nothing else. The last day we were there, a lady chastised me for not placing my garbage bag in the correct location. We counted a dozen beer cans on one site that had just been tossed on the ground. The gate to the dog park was opened one day to bury some kind of pipe. It remained open (difficult to close) for three days. Trash blew around the entire property. There was no effort to clean it up. There was no effort to clean anything up. We left a day early, and should probably have left earlier than that. On the way out the marked exit, the hitch on the back of the motor home banged into the road surface so hard that the entire motor home shook. We will never stay here again.

The nightly rate reflects a Passport America discount. This campground is outstanding. For us, it was just an overnight stop, but it is a place where we would be tempted to stay longer. Access from the interstate highway was simple. The pull-through sites were long and large. This is a fairly new place. The sites were well maintained and the utilities worked well. Our view was of beautiful golden mountains. The dog park was small, but instead of dirt, gravel or sand, it was covered with bright green grass. The staff could not have been friendlier. All overnight stops should be this good.

The $20 rate is for a monthly rental and does not include an additional charge for electricity. I am hesitant to write this review for fear of not being able to find a spot the next time we want to visit. This place is what all RV Parks should be. We were parked in the best site we have ever had in a private park. Huge. No hassles. Level. Excellent hookups. The staff members were very friendly and extremely helpful. The enclosed dog park was big enough for our medium sized dogs to actually run. Lots of places to walk dogs on leashes. Our site, even with great shade, had a clear view of the southern sky so our satellite worked well. Our Verizon coverage was OK, but we did hook up our booster. The wildlife in the area wander through the campground every day. Such a great place to sit on a lawn chair and enjoy nature. Our huge site was on a terraced hill with beautiful landscaping. Our fire pit was actually a couple steps down from the site on a separate terrace. This is our favorite private campground from five years of RVing. We have already reserved a site for next year.

The scenery both in and out of the campground area is beautiful, Green and soothing. The sites are large and easy to negotiate. Lots of space behind the sites to spread out. The restrooms and showers were clean and nice. We had a couple concerns. The community fresh water access near our site was non operational. Our main concern was the ticks. We attempted to take a hike, but had to return after 15 minutes and then spent 45 minutes removing ticks from our dogs and ourselves. Ticks were also prevalent at the campsite. We were constantly checking ourselves to see if new ones latched on. We kept our dogs inside after we realized the extent of the problem.

This is a really nice park for adults. The roads and sites are paved. Each site has a large concrete patio. Full hookups for $23 is a deal. Our site had a great view of Scotts Bluff National Monument. We did not expect to find anything this nice here.

Great place for an overnight stop. Very well maintained. Clean and comfortable. Good space between the pull-through sites. Friendly manager in the office. Lots of green grass. There are no amenities to speak of here, but the Cabela's main store and national headquarters is in the complex. Restaurants across the street. A little expensive. If we had, had a Cabela's card it would have been cheaper. Easy to get one in the store if you want to park in the parking lot first, get the card in the store, and then drive to the campground.

Free for a one night stop. Can't beat that. The spaces are essentially parallel parking. We spent one night during Memorial Day weekend so it was kind of crowded. We were lucky to get a spot. Several units pulled in and out later in the day as the park was full. Lots of green grass, a huge public pool, and a museum in the adjacent park.

This is a nice park for an overnight stay. The young owner was friendly and helpful. Lots of green grass at the sites.

What an isolated gem! We spent several days here while visiting Big Bend. The entire town complex was a high-end resort that is under new ownership. Since we visited in the very off-season, we did not expect everything to be operating, but were pleased to find that it was. There is no shade: good for our satellite, but the views are spectacular. The resort across the street is really cool: shops, bakery, restaurant, saloon. The golf course was closed due to freezing damage, but it is being restored and it is amazing. The pool area is landscaped and beautiful. Still some restoration to do, but this was much better than any of the options in nearby towns. A temporary manager was on site to register us. The active manager dropped by our site to say hello when he returned to town. We would definitely stay here again.
