Easy access from -I40. (Exit 139). Level gravel sites. Long pull thru, some trees. Electricity should be checked before plugging in. Several permanents, many very rundown. Good WiFi. Verizon service strong. Pleasant check in. Did not use restrooms or laundry facilities. Good for a couple of nights.

This campground is very close to the train tracks and trains run very frequently. I sleep with earplugs and was not awakened by the trains. You can walk to town where there are several nice little cafes with good food. The RV park has a nice park-like area with a small creek and a park bench. The owner is a very friendly elderly gentleman who keeps the restrooms immaculate. The price I quoted is the 50% off Passport America price. It's good for two weeks.

Sites are paved, level and widely spaced so quite private. Each site has a covered area with a table and a fire grill. There are little lakes all over. It is semi-arr id CO so no lush green grass and not a lot of trees on the full hookup side. My only complaint is that they require a day pass in addition to the camping fee which makes it fairly expensive. However it's still the least expensive place in the metro area. CO is an expensive place to camp.

We made a reservation for a site that we have stayed in before since we needed 50amp and those sites are in short supply. The new owners told us that it was ours for the 1 week we asked for. The day we were due to arrive, we called a 4:00pm to let them know that we would arrive between 5:00 and 5:30pm. They said everything was fine. When we arrived at 5:20pm someone was just hooking up to the site that we had reserved. We asked what was going on and they told us that someone else had reserved that site several weeks ago and before we had reserved it. That person wasn't due to arrive for 3 or 4 days but if they had put us into that site, we would have to move. They never even gave us that choice. They started putting an overnight rig in that site and asked us if we would take another site and we would have to step down to 30amp. I told them "No" we needed 50 amp for our coach due to large electricity requirements. They then told us they thought they had seen a 50amp plug-in on an electric box in the 30amp section but didn't know if it worked. If we wanted to plug in and see if it worked, that they would let us stay there at the 30amp price ($10 less for one week). Fortunately I was able to test for the proper current and we were able to use that site. The owners just take notes when you reserve and have no system to keep track of reservations. We felt we were not treated properly. We gave them the current rating based on the fact that they are working hard to clean this park up. Our price was a discounted 1 week rate. We will no longer stay in this park.

The rate quoted was with a Value Kard. Nice tenting area with wind break/privacy walls. Several cabins. Well kept. Very friendly personnel. Gravel sites, level. Your typical dry western campground with grass struggling to survive and many dirt areas where it hasn't. Mature trees but widely spaced so satellite access shouldn't be a problem especially in the newer area at the back.

Nightly rate reflects Good Sam discount. Good paved level sites for overnight--long pull throughs. Well kept. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi was weak from our site but it did work some of the time. Typical campground for dry western states--mostly gravel and pavement in the new section. Older section had mostly back in sites but more trees and grass.

Clean campground. Friendly staff and owner. Breakfast and dinner available at reasonable price. Close to highway but noise was very minimal. Verizon air card and phone service excellent. Good cable TV. Small trees so satellite reception would not be a problem from most sites. Good place to stay if your exploring the Petrified Forest.

This is a good place to spend the winter! Rate quoted reflects the annual price (plus electric). Annual renters can have a shed if they want one. No extra charges for sewer, water, trash or pets. Daily is $35 (includes electric). Very nice park in a circular layout. New managers this year are excellent: very friendly and helpful. Sites are nice sized and some are quite large depending on where you are in the circle. Laundry is a confusing card system but we don't use it. High speed internet can be installed on a by-the-month basis from a local provider (no contract necessary). Very nice pool and spa. Lots of activities.

Rate quoted includes taxes but not the additional vehicle pass of $6/day (if you have a motorhome and tow vehicle you have to buy two). Consider the annual passes if you stay long enough to make it a better deal. Entry road is gravel and can be rough. Full hookup side has no shade trees but all sites have covered table areas. The toilet and shower facilities are all on the non full hookup side so if you don't want to use your own you need to drive over or take a long hike. Paved parking pads, walking/biking trails around the ponds. Lots of water birds and nature. Sites are widely spread apart and fairly private. Your best choice in the metro area for price and atmosphere. Fills up on weekends so reserve early or take your chances.

Rate quoted is with combination of Passport America discount and regular rate and includes taxes. Level, wide gravel sites with big grassy areas. Well maintained. Friendly staff and owner. No laundry. Sandwiched between highway and railroad tracks so it's noisy, but there aren't a lot of trains. Ear plugs recommended for sleeping. The entry gate is a little tight but we made it with 40' plus "toad". Water has a lot of air in it but used to be rusty-looking so it has improved over some years ago.

Rate quoted is with Good Sam discount and includes taxes. Pleasant park with friendly staff. Mature trees and nice green grass. Well maintained. Satellite OK on some sites. Access a little tight for big rigs but we were fine with our 40' and "toad" and didn't have to unhook. Water spigots only every other site so might need to stretch extra hose across to reach it. Also a stretch for the electrical cord.

Rate quoted was with Escapees Club discount and includes taxes. Gravel roads and sites. Nice little lake. Big rig sites are narrow but plenty long. Park is up for sale. Mature trees and fairly quiet but some road noise.

Quoted rate is with Passport America discount and includes tax. OK park for overnight to see Fort Laramie NHP. It has deteriorated since the first time we stayed here and they don't seem to be keeping up on maintenance. It's very near the well-used train tracks so earplugs are advised.

Rate quoted was with Passport America discount and includes taxes. Large park with lots of cabins. Gravel roads and sites, level but short enough that you couldn't leave the tow car on. Low-level lighting so you can see the stars. Trees are too small to give shade. Has a pool and hot tub but we didn't use them.

One of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed in. Grassy and park-like with level gravel sites and paved roads. Hookups are at the back so can be a stretch for the sewer on motorhomes. Lots of mature trees so satellite access can be tricky. There's a stream running around the campground and it is in walking distance to the main park with great playground, historic fish hatchery, and the river with wading and tubing.

Rate quoted was with the Escapees Club discount and tax. Situated on a hill so views are good. Long gravel entry road was quite rough. Sites level. Iffy WiFi unless you go outside the office.

Our rate was the weekly rate plus 1 day at the Passport America rate. The park is a little run down but they seem to be working on improving it--we've stayed here other years and see the changes. The cabins look very nice from the outside. Laundry room was clean. Highway noise is high, even on the back row.

As with all KOAs, this park was pricey. $4 extra per night for 50-amp hookup. The park was well-maintained and the staff was very friendly. The sites had cement pads and were level. Bricked patios and tables at most sites. Some were very small, but some were quite nice. We found that our Verizon cellphones and Internet devices would not work at all here. They did have decent Wi-Fi available but with our business we couldn't be without phone service for a week. We stayed one night and they refunded our money for the balance without question. Very nice!

Rate quoted was with Good Sam discount plus 5% discount for paying cash, tax included. Easy access, fairly quiet, fairly level. Gravel roads and sites, with grass between. Lots of trees so satellite is iffy but they do have cable TV and WiFi included. WiFi worked fine, didn't use the cable. Picnic tables on the sites.

Well kept up with friendly staff. Typical KOA, catering to families. The price was reasonable compared to some KOA's we've been in. We don't frequent them often since they tend to be really high priced. We are retired and don't need all the kiddie stuff you're paying for. It was a holiday weekend so there were many families with kids and dogs running everywhere and ATV's roaring around. Fine for an overnight and probably not as noisy on non-holiday weekends.

Small cozy park in a nice, small town atmosphere. One of those gems you run into sometimes. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to a really good restaurant that used to be a filling station. Holiday festivities were going on, including a parade and a rodeo, but the announcer was not loud enough to be annoying.

You can't see how nice this campground is from the road. Large grassy sites in back with gravel pads to park on. Front sites are shadier but have less grass and are closer together. They have a washer and dryer in the office. The owners are very friendly, nice, hardworking people. Wi-Fi is available at the closer sites. The town has a lot of history. Have lunch at Bob's Riverfront Cafe. The hamburgers are great and the french fries are the best we've had. Then walk it off along the river walk park, and read the history of the town on the plaques.

Park has large level, gravel sites. It's clean and well-maintained, with friendly staff. The free WiFi was appreciated because our Verizon was not available here. Has a very nice well-stocked store. Also has pretty landscaping around the office with birds and pond. Nice!

Beautifully landscaped and well maintained park. Easy access to the strip and I-15. Daily rate is higher Friday-Sunday, and holidays are even higher. Pricey!! Wi-Fi charge is high also. Otherwise we would have rated it at 10. Sites and roads are paved and level. Parking for toad/tow vehicles is very limited, so they tend to stick out into the road a bit making it difficult to maneuver a larger rig in and out of a site.

Rate quoted is for the annual rate. Daily rate is probably in the #35 range. This is a 55+ park but grand-kids can come visit on a temporary basis. Pets are welcome but they encourage you to take your dogs out of the park (along the street) to do their business. The park is in a circular configuration so the sites are wedge shaped which gives a little more room--some have a lot more room. Gravel for the car and MH with paved patios. Nice swimming pool and hot tub, library, workout room, pool table, card tables and library. Planned activities. Well maintained. Manager can be a little crusty.

Nice park-like atmosphere with level gravel parking spots with green grass in between. Nice wide sites. Well maintained. Walking path. They offer Wi-Fi and cable included in the price. We didn't use them so can't say how they worked. Laundry appeared clean and well-maintained but we didn't use it. We've camped here before and will return.

Overpriced for the area since there's really nothing to see or do, but that's typical for KOAs. Camp-workers were friendly. Free WiFi but we didn't try it since our Verizon broadband worked well, and cable included--which we didn't try either. Well maintained, gravel sites, level, barren, no trees. A few permanents.

This is our third winter in this park. They are improving the infrastructure every year, upgrading facilities and buildings. Many activities are available including a "Country Store" from 11-1 every Friday with food and lots of crafts and other items available for sale. Three pools, 6 spas, workout room, library, craft rooms, computer room, all the amenities you expect at a winter destination park. This is an adult park (not 55+ restricted) mainly catering to snowbirds. Lots of park models but there are several sections for mostly RV's, one at the back along University and one close to the entrance called Casitas. The Casitas are premium sites and more expensive but they are double-wide with tables and plenty of space. There are more and more high-end RV's staying in these sites. Our rate is the long-term Casita site rate. Electricity is extra. Trash is picked up once a week. We have a DSL line installed for the months we are here, but Tengo is available for a price.

Well maintained. Some sites are narrow but they are long enough for large rigs. Large park-like area with a pond. Very pretty. Not too much road noise. They have a storm shelter--haven't seen that very often.

Friendly owners, nice grassy park with trees at every site, but still could get satellite. Peaceful setting, good gravel roads and level sites. Incredible star gazing because they don't have bright lights on at night. Only downside is the freight trains are quite loud when they come through. The actual address of the campground is Lingle WY, not Ft Laramie.

Overall our family had a good experience. The facilities are good, but everything is overpriced. Check-in is disorganized, no computer system and they lost reservations and payment records. We were here with a family reunion. The staff's rude behavior put a sour note to the experience. They somewhat rudely questioned us whether we had all paid. We had, it was just their poor record keeping. Those of us that were staying one more night had just said goodbye to the rest of the family and were talking at a table. A staff person came and rudely told us to vacate the area and move our vehicles--he had a motorhome coming in. There was no call for that attitude--we were not blocking access to any campsite and as it turned out, no motorhome came in all night. If you have ever done a rodeo, ATV tour, or horseback riding you will be disappointed with what they offer here.

Well maintained bare gravel sites. Hookups are behind a fence that must be climbed over or you must walk way around to reach them. They are way to the back so you need 30' sewer hose to reach it unless your dump is at the back. Also the power dropped several times during the evening. Still a good alternative to the overpriced deficient alternatives in the area.

Beautiful setting, like camping in a park. Mature trees, grassy sites with gravel pads, fire pits and tables at all sites. Walking/biking paths along the stream with easy access to the city park. 2 week limit. We extended our stay to 8 days. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Bare dirt and messy access. Wide, level sites. Not pretty but fine for overnight. Lots of extended stay working people, but quiet at night. We used our Passport America discount but they charged $5 extra for 50 amp.

We stayed over a month which accounts for the low nightly rate. Friendly owners in a friendly town with a lot of history. Recently installed a small laundry and put in gravel sites in the back section, where sites are wide and long with nice sized grass yards. Sites are smaller in the front section.Campground is well-maintained. They also have two teepees for campers. Check out the Fort Benton Summer Celebration in late June.

This campground is in the beautiful Madison River valley with mountain views all around. It is north of West Yellowstone and 30 miles south of Cameron on US 287. Nice big office/lounge area with extensive free DVD library and bumper pool and shuffleboard games. Facilities were very clean. An excellent base camp for fly fishermen, they also have four large cabins. The restaurant and pub are open Thurs-Mon evenings. We ate there and enjoyed the food and the local patrons. We stayed 3 days. Passport America rate.

The price reminded us again to avoid KOA's. The park was very well maintained and had long level sites up top. We didn't look at the river sites. Large piles of boulders between the sites made it awkward to walk around the coach. The facilities are beautifully maintained and clean. The covered swimming pool looked good but was filled with school children from the local grade school the afternoon we were there. The owner/manager was pleasant, but this park is too rich for our budget!

Many extended stay units. Friendly staff. They will charge $2 extra for cable if your site has it, even if you don't need/want it. Campground has seen better days.

The sites were tight and large trees make satellite TV a challenge. Many extended stay families. Facilities seemed clean and maintained. There was miniature golf and video games as well as a large grassy area for gatherings. Paved interior roads were a plus. The check-in staff seemed a little confused but were perhaps new and learning the system. We had a weekly rate.

Huge paved sites, spaced well apart. Many small lakes with lots of water birds. Very peaceful. It is a state park so passes are required in addition to the camping fee. $6 per vehicle per day (which means $12 if you have a motorhome with a toad). It makes sense to buy the annual pass if you plan to stay 2 weeks. The older area has electric and some water and is $18. That side has paved roads. The newer side has good gravel roads. The main drawback is the dirt access road to the park. It is either dusty and rutted or a mud bog depending on the weather.

We paid the Passport America rate (1/2 off). The staff was friendly and the campground was well maintained, but had seen better days. Sites weren't level. The building had some history, but we couldn't find the view of the city lights that the literature described.

The rate we paid is the Passport America rate which is 1/2 off. Level gravel sites behind a motel with lots of highway noise. There were lots of extended stay units and the park was not at all pretty. OK for an overnight especially at 1/2 price.

This is a membership (Escapees) park. It is the nicest of the SKP parks that we have visited.The staff is friendly and always tries to give you a site with the best view possible. The campground is situated on a hillside with great views across the desert towards the mountain.There are lots of birds and one can hear coyotes yipping in the evening.They have a very nice clubhouse for social gatherings.
