This is a really nice park, likely the best in the Zion National Park area. Great pool and hot tub. The playground looked very nice. There was even a group of picnic tables and grills for community use. The store was well stocked and they had nightly activities (although we didn't participate). We had a premium site (site #1) that could easily accommodate our 45-footer. We did back out of the pull through to avoid the branches. Branches appear to be a problem in several sites. Our site had a concrete pad that was fairly level. The rest of the site was grass and rocks. FYI, the sprinklers run in the early morning hours of the night. Our Verizon cell service was almost non existent. Their Wi-Fi was good. Not perfect, but as perfect as you'll find in this area. The park is just 8 miles from the park. I'd stay here again.

This is not your typical park, it has a campground side and resort side. We stayed in the resort side, which was quite nice. The sites easily handled our 45-foot bus and car. The pool and hot tub were well maintained (these are restricted use for the resort side). The owner is the developer and sure looks to know his stuff. This isn't his first park. It is a work in progress. Other than some left over materials we could view out the windshield, the park looks great. The park is well positioned between Moab and Arches. I would stay on the resort side again. BTW, unlike many resorts, this one is not restricted to Class A RVs. There is a RV age restriction on the resort side.

Nice park, relatively new, but you need to consider a few things (as should the owners). The park is located very near the interchange of I-15 and I-215. You can see the traffic on the elevated roadway and certainly hear the traffic. Why they located the sewer connection at the extreme end of the sites next to your neighbor's car parking spot is totally beyond me. Hopefully, you have a long hose and your neighbor doesn't accidentally run over it. The club house is nice with TV and pool table, but not accessible after hours. North Salt Lake City is close to town, but the immediate area is very industrial to include some kind of refinery. With our windows shut, road noises could not be heard. They have a tree planted between most, if not all, sites. In time these trees are going to create problems for those with slides. If this park was physically in another location, it would be so much nicer.

Great park for those wanting to visit the Columbia River Gorge. There was no problem navigating a 45-foot RV. Many seasonal renters and all we met friendly. Great laundry facility. Good Wi-Fi. Close to town, Wal-Mart and Camping World. There's a bit of plane and train noise but not that bad. The person that checked us in was too business like, but okay. He even told us where to buy fresh salmon. Don't use Exit 18! If you do you'll have to make a sharp right turn onto a bridge that's two way for cars and one way for trucks and buses. Use Exit 17. The park's old entrance is now only an exit. Big rigs should not use this exit as the bridge has a 20 ton weight limit. The park borders the Sandy River that can be busy with swimmers and fun seekers on hot summer days. Join them and have fun too. I would stay here again.

This park tends to be over rated. The park is clean, but it's age is showing. There are trees on most, if not all, lots and they need to be trimmed. The park is on a gradual hillside requiring the concrete pads to have, in some cases, a significant taper to meet the road. Some sites are far from level. We were put in a premier site, which only differs from standard sites in that you are at the end of a row and pay an extra $9/night. Seasonal guests made up most of the park, which seemed fine. The indoor pool was small, but still okay. There were a few pieces of gym equipment scattered under an outdoor eave and in the large general purpose room. The park claims to be dog friendly, but really isn't. They have the dog walking area on the field that is used for general purposes. Why not move the walk to far side of the road? You are greeted by two large signs. One asking you stop here to register and the other firmly stating no dogs over 40 pounds. You can bring a dozen yapping small dogs but not a gentle quiet labrador. They say the rule is because owners weren't picking up after their dogs. A 45-footer will fit, but it will be tight and trees will likely be in your way. Sites are narrow, so those with slides won't have much site left. They do not supply picnic tables; probably because the sites are narrow and most sloped. Wi-Fi was very good. We hope to have a dog soon, so we won't return.

The lot owners recently became the owners after Outdoor Resorts went under. Currently the rates are a great value. I hope they maintain the rates. The park sits on a cliff over looking the ocean. There's a walkway to the beach. The clubhouse is awesome with heated indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna. There's also a heated outdoor pool. The sites are second to none. You have to call to get a reservation. They didn't have a reservation system or web site yet when we stayed here.

On the ocean! Ocean lovers will love this place. Very nice club house with gym, pool table, phone, and kitchen. There is no Verizon service here. That's why they have a phone available. Good Wi-Fi. As nice as the park is it's overpriced for what it is. Save some money on a much nicer place 35 miles north. If you are in a 45-footer don't try to stay in the first 3 sites to the right when headed toward the water.

I understand this property to be bank owned. The park was fairly well maintained. The pool and hot tub could use a cleaning. No umbrellas at the pool! Good Wi-Fi. Paved roads and concrete pads. Some pads are falling apart. Some sites are a bit tight for 45-footers. Near several RV service companies.

It is a rarity to have grass sites in AK. The only bad part of grass sites is that you also park on grass. This may cause your jacks to settle. They are a bid over zealous with the rules. Forget to put your yellow car tag on your windshield and be greeted in the morning with a nasty-gram to comply. Come on one car on a site and they wonder if its authorized! They also nickel and dime you. You pay extra for a 50 amp site and then they will charge you an extra $3/night for heat, air, or a freezer. They also have a strange online reservation system. You send them $35 by PayPal and don't get a confirmation of your reservation. With the negatives, this is a nice park. Clean laundry room. Easy walk to town. Oh one more negative. Okay no washing, got it. But also no waxing or wiping.

This is a hard campground to rate. It's view is second to none. Kluane Lake is absolutely spectacular as is the mountains behind you. The owner's are nice. The down side is that power is limited to 15A, which borders on being a dry camp. I would highly recommend they change their power distribution so there are a few 30A, a few 20A a few 15A and possible a few 10A sites. I know they can't justify a larger generator, but could change the distribution. The laundry room is closed and the one dump station is on the wrong side of the drive. The power is only on from 4pm to check out time. But, again, the view is worth the other inconveniences. We were in a 45-foot MH towing a car and didn't have any problems. I'd certainly stay again. In the Yukon, the view doesn't get any better than this.

You're in the Yukon, don't expect the fancy parks of Disney World. The owner is very knowledgable of the Yukon and lives here year round. He often takes guests on a his WW II truck into the forest across the highway. On our journey we saw 4 grizzlies. We also learned a lot from him. He pointed out the route of the original 4" pipeline between Whitehorse and Fairbanks. We walked on what is left of an original Alaskan Highway wooden bridge, and saw a log building used by the postal delivery teams when they used dog sleds. The park, like many in the Yukon, depends on its our generators. It runs from 4pm to check out time, which is typical. It supplies up to 30A of service. We stayed in a 45-foot MH with no problems. We'd stay here again.

Staying here is all about the location, not what the campground has to offer. The sites are narrow, barely wide enough to support dual side slides in side-by-side sites. Some sites aren't very level, off enough that my air leveling system could not level my coach. They have two water systems, one well and one trucked in water. Our water was just fine. A couple sites that they made full service should not have had sewer due to the length of the run. Our site was just fine. You are 1 mile from the national park, right next to the shops and eateries. This park is as good as the parks that are 10 miles away. I would stay here again, even with its short comings.

We stayed here 6 nights. The view is awesome, but no better than a few other parks in Homer. The facilities are relatively new and well maintained, I suspect the best in the city. They would have gotten a higher rating if they were more proactive in admitting and fixing the Internet that went from awesome the first 3 days to unusable outside the office the last 3 days. Their rating would have also been better, except I don't feel their price represents value. BTW, they quoted me a military rate and then charged me full price. When asked they said the military rates are only for active duty, but they didn't ask me my military status when we checked in. It's only a $5/night difference, but its the way they managed it that I didn't like. This should be a $45/night park with great facilities. Since leaving our home in FL, this is the most we've paid for any park. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice park, but overpriced.

Friendly staff. She put us in one of the very few sites that would support our 45-foot MH and attached car. Sites are very narrow with trees between most. If you have slides on both sides you will have to be exact on where you position your rig and you'll have no room left. Free entertainment in the evening, a local bluegrass singer: not bad. Most turns are also tight. They have a self car wash. Rather than use a timer they charge based on vehicle. $20 to self wash a MH seems extreme. The park is not a value for what we paid. Will look elsewhere on our return trip. Only 1 hour of free internet, otherwise $6.95/day.

This is a no frills CG located just off the Glenn Highway. Road noise may bother some. As said by others, the office is not regularly staffed. The staff is friendly. We stayed here in a 45-footer with little problem. We also stayed in one of two 50A sites. Internet is free and very good. We extended our stay and would stay here again.

This is a good park with two different types of sites. The lower sites are like many other CG in this region in that it's a huge gravel lot with sites. The other sites up the hill are wooded and well spaced. We stayed in the lower sites. We have a 45-foot MH and will not fit anywhere else. The lower sites are side-by-site and very tight. Although doable, it's a bit tough getting a 45-footer in/out when the park is packed. Friendly staff, great self serve RV wash. Internet is the best we've had in Canada. They limit you to 150mb or Internet access. This may be their secret to internet success. Showers are pay, like much of Canada. They also sell tickets to many attractions and run buses for some day tours. I'd stay here again.

This is a pretty nice place. We were in a pull-through facing the highway long enough for 45-footer and connected toad. Several cable channels, best Wi-Fi in days. The staff was very friendly, even escorting me to the site while my wife registered us. On-site restaurant. I'd stay here again.

Friendly staff. Good Internet and you can use the city provided Internet available from Pioneer Park right next door. Some sites have big slopes, so position on a site is critical. We were on the row facing the office, 50 amp full hookup pull-through. The toad must be removed because the flattest part of the site is the rear, which is fine. I'd return unless offered some of the really sloped sites, which there are several.

Very convenient to Edmonton, about 10 miles. About 6 miles to Edmonton Mall. This is not a park to be in the rain and we were. There's more mud than gravel so it's a mess in the rain. We were in a pull-through in the back of the park. Internet in this area was spotty but very good in the main building. Friendly staff. We stayed here 3 days, 2 more than planned for mechanical and weather delays. The trash cans and restrooms are at the front of the park. Not real convenient if you're at the back of the park. Good 50 amp power. We were in a full hookup pull-through. The site was 40 feet long, so our 45-footer stuck out. There's a very wide road in front of the site, so it wasn't hard to get in or out off. Location, location, location!

This park is 20 miles from Calgary and adjoins a modern truck stop. We were on the row closest the highway and the road noise does go down at night. The sites are large with grass and patios. We're in a 45-footer and was able to negotiate the pull-through site. They put small wooden rail fences up at the front and rear of the sites, likely to protect their sprinklers. Depending on your site these fences may make it tight to get in or out of. I thought the park was a bit remote, but a good value. We had 30 amp full hookup site. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the park's fireworks for Canada Day. Wi-Fi was unusable at the site. We were at the far corner of the campground and the Wi-Fi antenna was aimed at the opposite corner.

More than overnighting would be too much. The train runs through the night. What makes it so loud is that it's crossing a bridge adjacent to the camp. Good power, good Wi-Fi, good cable.

This is a hard CG to rate. They are still in recovery mode from last year's flooding. All buildings are new as are the site utilities. They have gravel roads and sites. The sites were we were are ALL gravel and very narrow. This row would not support slides and awnings on adjacent sites. For an overnight they are just fine, except the low spot between sites that's just gravel. Again, they are rebuilding, so grass or pads MAY be part of their plan. Wi-Fi was hit or miss as they get through growing pains with their new ISP. I didn't notice a pool, but did notice the large number of long term occupants. Some of the long term units are eye sores. Apparently many CGs in the area have the same volume of long term visitors supporting the oil wells. This could be a nice place and may be when they get finished.

This is advertised as an adult campground. I believe that means they don't have a pool and may not like kids. They have gravel roads and sites. Our site was level and supported our 45-footer. They are just a couple minutes from down town. Internet worked well. Staff was friendly. They offer a cash discount. If you aren't traveling with kids, this is a great place. We stayed here two nights.

This campground is pretty convienent to Minneapolis being at the edge of Maple Grove. The pull through section we were in was set-up for side-by-side. That means you will need a long power cord and hose if you end up on the wrong side. Staff was friendly. Pool was on the small side, but they did have one. Interior roads are gravel as are most of the sites. Nice place, just a bit pricey for what you're getting. Internet access was hit or miss, working some times and not others.

45-footers may find some sites too short to support a towed car, or too far from level. Fair gravel roads and sites. Broader turns would be a big plus. Friendly staff, nice pool area, right next door to a Wild West attraction and decent wild west themed steak house. Try the Chicken Pot Pie! Frankly, too pricey for location and offerings.

Very convenient to the turnpike. So much so, that there is some road noise. There's not much here other than an unheated pool. We're in a 45-footer and there's few sites that can support a rig this big and get anywhere near level. This would be a great $25 location for those wanting to stop for the night. I should have read the other reviews first! FWIW (for what it's worth), we didn't have the power problems mentioned by others. We were one of only 6 or so, non seasonal ones in the park. Although the restrooms were clean it seemed weird that the one bath house had clear glass in the front doors and the windows were open with no screens.
