This Thousand Trails is a very nice park. There are few spots available to people who are not permanent residents, however. The staff is very nice and helpful and the grounds were well kept. There was Internet available in the adult lounge only and it was so slow it wasn't worth my time. Instead, I drove in town to McDonald's and used theirs. The location of this park is the reason for the lower rating. The park itself is nice to relax and fish. If you want to sightsee, or go into town each day, well you wont be close to anything. We would stay there again.
We just spent 2 weeks at this park, which included Labor Day weekend. I was pleasantly surprised that the staff and campers were all very nice, happy and helpful. I watched the staff work very hard to keep things nice and clean, to ask people to follow the rules, and work hard to be helpful to everyone. The park is a short drive to a public library, 2 grocery stores, other shopping, parks and tourist attractions. I am very glad we stayed at this campground and would absolutely return. I rated this park a 9 because, as do most RV parks, there are things that need repair. The putt putt golf equipment and course are in very bad shape and the whole place could just use a face lift. Rate reflects Thousand Trails membership.
We had our first Thousand Trails stay at this park and really liked it. Everyone and everything was good for us! We had a nice site with a huge tree stump our boys loved to climb on. We spent time each day in the clubhouse playroom and on the playgrounds. Did laundry several times without any issue. We used the great free WiFi in the clubhouse and at the laundry room. I'm glad to have come here and will come back if we visit the area again. There are two side of the park. The side with the pool had a few rows of tight RV slots but the rest were more open and on the laundry side the sites were also more spread apart. Nice park! The stay was free for us because it was within our first 30 days in the system.
We stayed a couple weeks here and loved it. The new owners are nice and helpful and are making improvements all the time. The spaces are narrow and some require experience and skill parking a trailer. We have a 34' fifth wheel and my husband got us backed in after a few tries. We could put our awning out half way and had plenty of room for chairs and stuff outside our RV. Our sewer connection was a little uphill but we had no trouble propping up the hoses and dumping and such. It all depends on the size of your unit, the site you get, and your trailer parking experience. The resort is tucked into the side of a hill so everything is on a hill. We loved the trees and rustic feel. I could hear cars on the road sometimes but couldn't see it from our RV due to all the trees. Our young kids had a blast here and we felt safe to let them freely play in 90% of the resort. The hiking trials are nice; you don't have to drive any where to get exercise and fresh air each day. We will return for sure!
We got a spot by chance as we were driving through the Tetons into Yellowstone and wanted to stop for the afternoon. We were able to get into a dry camping spot and were allowed to use our generator, so it was fine. The spot was pretty level, had a fire ring/grill we could move around to suit us. It was quiet and peaceful even with many families and kids.
This park was great for us for a 4 night stay. We have two young kids and have stayed at another Jellystone park so we knew that these campgrounds cater to children. I only gave a 8 out of 10 because there could be a few improvements. The mini golf course was run down as others have said, but many people used and enjoyed it anyway. The grounds themselves are kept up nicely. We had no issues with any other campers. The staff was helpful and nice. They have everything you could need here for a short stay. The laundry room could be double in capacity. Four units for the number of people here is not sufficient. Anyway, we wold stay here again, no doubt!
We stayed here for a fulltime family rally and had a great time! There were activities each day for the kids, more so than another Jellystone we have stayed at. The staff was wonderful with the kids. The pool had to be closed for a while one day so a few leaks could be fixed, but that wasn't bad. We were patient, and they were understanding that the kids were itching to get in it. When we checked in the girl working the front desk didn't know they took Discover or how to handle a separate rate from the rally rate, but she made a couple calls and got it figured out, so I can be gracious with new people. The grounds where we stayed, in the back nearest the pool, were pretty weedy and bare. We had to request that the sprinklers be turned off cause our whole site was drenched and muddy when we woke in the AM on the first morning. But again they took care of it fast. All the hook ups worked fine, nothing interesting there. The wifi is HORRIBLE. even the staff will tell you. If you are in a certain place, standing a certain way, it may work for a bit. Actually, some families at the rally had fine service at their site, so that was just our experience. We did have an issue with the hay ride one time. I am happy they do it, but it was like an hour long! And my husband took our little one, thinking it would be a quick trip around the grounds. But no. They went almost into Montrose and went SLOW. We did mention it to the owner who commented that they just have a hard time getting a good length for everyone to be happy, so just know ahead of time what you are getting into. Overall it was a nice place with great scheduled activities for the kids. The movies they showed seemed to be for ages 8 and up, not G rated that I remember. If you are thinking of staying at a Jellystone, please know these are campgrounds who largely cater to kids. Expect children of all ages to be around playing and having fun. The $36 reflects a discount for being with a rally
We stayed here with our two young boys for the max 14 nights and loved every second! Now, when we first got there it had been raining so our spot had a little standing water. Leveling was interesting, but we got it done, in the rain and all. We found our site was wonderful. Level with one set of legos and water and electric were good to go. There was some work being done to a few sites when not being used, but nothing annoying or in the way. You can not swim, but you can wade, be in the water. Our kids splashed around and had a great time! The little store with snacks and some necessities was great, I am glad they were there. The playgrounds were also fun. There was wonderful hiking, bike riding and just a ton to see and do in Cheyenne and Laramie. The main negative I have about the park, and this is just there rule and I get that, but my mom flew in from Austin TX to stay with us for three nights and take the kids to the Cheyenne Frontier Days. She rented a car at the Denver airport, drove to the park and was going to sleep in our fifth wheel. Well, I was happy to pay a fee for her to be there, but I wasn't expecting to have to pay a full nights camping fee per night of her being there. She didn't have her own spot, only a car which was parked in our spot and not in the way of anyone else parking. I found that a little ridiculous, but whatever, of course we paid it.
We stayed here for the cheap PA rate only. We only needed a one night, full hookup spot after boondocking for two weeks and found this one on the PA website. The owner was very, very nice. An older lady is who I met, can't remember her name. The grounds are unkempt, barren, and the handful of spots on the property were full with obvious long time people. They were well settled in. There were maybe three open spots when we were there. it is a bare bones stop for the night and sleep kinda place. Worth the $12.50, though!
So far, we are liking our stay here. The sites are large, although a few fifth wheel sites are not clearly defined. We have woken up twice with a new person within arms reach from our front door, when there is a lot of room around where you would think they could put people. There are many trees for a little shade which is great in this heat! The office staff is great, helpful. They offered to have a limo service pick us up to go to dinner. The Wi-fi is wonderful. The indoor pool is ok. The water is a bit murky and needs some repair. The playscape is great and safe, but could also use some easy basic repairs. The laundry room is small, four washers and dryers, but I was happy to have them to use. One dryer I used was not heating, so I told the staff and they put up an out of order sign and refunded me my $1 right away. I am glad we found this park and would stay here again.
We stayed here two nights. I do not know what options are in the area but I would look for a different option for the next time. The staff was nice and helpful, there were trees, which is rare in that area. The play-scape was pretty run down, the pool was small and wasn't nice looking to me. We have 30 amp service and we were told the pedestal had 100 amp service, shared with another RV. Luckily we had a surge protector because it began melting the prongs on it and we tripped the breaker a few times using less than what should have tripped it. The internet is Tango for which you are given a code to use it that is good for 24 hours. After that you have to pay Tango. And it is SLOW. I tried it a few times and decided not to bother. Several people did not have their dogs on leashes . It was quiet....other than the dog that barked at me every time I went outside. I am glad we only had to be there a couple nights and will not return.
