Nice NP campground – sites were far apart, with substantial foliage between each site to give privacy (we stayed at site B37). Road and site is paved. 30 amp power is available at each site. We tried to run the AC (it was 100 degrees in the afternoon in June) and our electric water heater simultaneously and blew the main circuit breaker in a panel not accessible to us – but a park volunteer reset the breaker. We switched to gas for the water heater and refrigerator and everything worked fine. Note that our AC lost ground over the afternoon - even starting it in the morning. Initially the RV was cooled down to 76 degrees, but it gradually crept up to 82 degrees by the evening because of the 100 degree heat. Your results may differ (our rig is 10 years old). Of course Wi-Fi is not available in the campground – it is also not offered in the Zion Visitor Center (some National Park Visitor centers offer this). AT&T cell voice connection is very weak – 1 bar or so. Various cell data symbols show up (E, G, 3G, 4G) from time-to-time, but I was never able to get data through any of these connections. The Brew Pub just outside the entrance to the park offers Wi-Fi. You can also ask the market next door how to get onto their Wi-Fi. If you plan to hike the Narrows, we recommend that you rent a set of canyoneering shoes, neopreme booties and a walking stick. We rented from the outfit just past the bridge into Springdale (next to the BrewPub) for $23. Other outfitters are available in Springdale and may be cheaper - we didn't check. Many people do the hike/wade in normal shoes/boots – but the rentals keep your feet warm and give you better footing. We hiked a little over two miles up the Narrows (three miles from the Temple of Sinawava shuttle stop). Dump station is convenient on the way out.

Very nice commercial RV park only a couple of miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Beautiful, well tended grounds with grass around each site. Park roads are paved, sites are gravel (with a separate parking area for your tow vehicle next to each main site). Perfectly level. Every site had a concrete picnic area next to it with a picnic table. Quiet location. Nice and well organized office staff. The RV park is within easy walking distance of the center of West Yellowstone, to it was easy to get to markets, restaurants, tackle shops, etc. We were there over the 4th of July and the town had a parade, music in the park and great fireworks that you could easily see from the RV park. TengoInternet Wi-Fi worked well. When you check in the office gives you a set of pass codes, each pass code good for one device for 24 hours and they give you enough for two devices. I think we got them free because we were in a ‘premium’ site, not sure what the deal is if you’re in a non-premium site. AT&T cell and data services worked well.

We really liked this park. Of course you have the benefit of being right in the middle of Grand Teton National Park, but the RV park itself was nice. Sites were a generous distance apart by RV park standards (close together by typical dry-camp National Park standards). Most or all sites were pull-through and were staggered, at different heights and with tree trunks between you so that you typically didn’t look right out on your neighbor. AT&T cell service registered one-bar but basically didn’t work. There was no Wi-Fi at the sites, but Wi-Fi is available in the laundry only a 2-5 minute walk away. The Wi-Fi worked well in the morning when there weren’t may people around – but when there were one or two dozen users in the evening it was very slow. Not only was the laundry a short walk away, but next door was a decent grocery store and nice gift shop. The sites are dirt and are not perfectly level. We needed 1-2 yellow blocks on one side to level our 5th wheel out, and the nose was significantly high but that’s easy to adjust on a 5th wheel. Yes, there are sometimes kids riding bikes around the camp, but we didn’t find that disturbing.

Nice park with the units spread out pretty nicely for a commercial RV park. Laundry was nice. Open area with an occasional tree. Outbuildings looked pretty new. RV office is the double-wide trailer that the husband-and-wife (?) staff live in. Nice couple. Wi-Fi signal was strong – but the speed was barely usable (both at 9 PM and 8 AM). Campers are a mixture of permanents (working on the oil rigs in the area) and overnighters like ourselves. AT&T cell service was ‘off network’ with an Edge data connection – didn’t use it because the park offered Wi-Fi. Rate is for dry camping - no hookups.

Typical NP campground – sites are spread out well. No hookups. Some foliage between sites. Roads and sites are paved – road is a little narrow. No Wi-Fi of course, although it is available in the visitor center. On my AT&T phone I was able to get an Edge connection that allowed access to the Internet, although it was slow.

Typical NP campground - sites were far apart from your neighbor, no hookups. Most, if not all, were pull outs from the side of the road. Our site (#23) had a 2’-3’ drop off from the parking area to the picnic table with a stone retaining wall, but there was a stone step to make it an easy transition. Sites across the road were level without the drop off. Site was easy to level. We had to park our 32’ trailer judiciously to enable the truck to be parked in the site as well. Dump station is about a mile away, a short distance to the main road then turn off to Sunrise point. There is a $5 charge to use the dump station, even if you’ve already paid the camping fee (but $15 camping fee is pretty cheap). Road is paved, site is dirt – but it was pretty level. The campground is very convenient to the rest of Bryce Canyon NP.

Given the negative reviews we’d read before arriving we were expecting the worst, and actually changed our reservation from two nights to one night before we got there. But when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. The staff at check-in was courteous and prompt. The site was level and all sites were reasonably far apart from their neighbors – probably 20-30’ between rigs. Most sites were pull-through, and the whole campground was nestled within beautiful red cliffs that were several hundred feet tall. As reported elsewhere, the Wi-Fi was worthless – and the only data signal my AT&T phone could pick up was a couple of bars of an Edge network (much slower than 3G or 4G) – so Internet access was basically not possible. But we weren’t there for that. The indoor pool was typical RV park size – enough for kids to play around, but not long enough for laps. It had an outdoor patio that we enjoyed sitting in after taking a dip (the weather while we were there was in the high 80’s). We also enjoyed the nightly showing of a John Wayne film that was shot in Monument Valley. The film wasn’t that great, at least by today’s standards, but it was fun viewing the scenes shot in the valley we were going to tour tomorrow. A John Wayne movie is shown every night at Goulding's lodge, which is too far to walk - but the RV park offers a shuttle to/from building at which the movie is shown (not a movie theater, but a room with 20-or-so folding chairs).

Beautiful park. Lots of space between sites, similar to a state or national park, rather than a traditional commercial RV park. Wi-Fi available throughout – really impressive for the size of the area they cover. However the Wi-Fi devices are located at the bathrooms, so if you’re far away from the bathroom your signal may be weak. Wi-Fi performance in the evening is adequate. The only downside is that much of the campground is in hilly country and many of the sites slope to one side significantly – probably for drainage. We had to try three sites before finding one that only required 2-3 yellow blocks under the low wheels of the trailer. The others would’ve required 5 blocks or more to get level. The campground up 1,000 ft of elevation higher than the park entrance 4 miles away and 10 miles from the town of Cortez, so there is no AT&T cell signal – probably not for other vendors either, but I can’t say for sure. Rate reflects a senior discount (over 62 years old)

Nice RV Park. The sites are nice, and most are tree shaded. It has a nice laundry, nice people in the office. They advertise free WiFi, but the performance was so poor that it was really unusable. It took over a minute for a page to load. We switched to our AT&T hotspot which worked well. Note that this park is a few miles south of Moab, and you’re 10 miles south of Arches National Park. Not a terrible drive, but there were several nice looking RV parks closer to the park (not sure how we ended up picking this one).

Nice park – down below the highway so there was no road noise. Nice sites – decently spread out. Close to town, just a mile or less from a couple of the biggest casinos. The park is associated with the Hilton Garden Inn a short distance away, so you can use the hotel’s pool, spa and exercise room. You’ll most likely want to drive to the Hilton because it’s a bit of a climb to walk up to it from the RV park.

This was a nice park for one night on our way east from Sacramento. Staff was helpful, and the park was clean. Very close to a typical neighborhood of houses, which made it easy for my wife and I to take a 2 mile walk in the evening after dinner. We would stay here again if our travels took us through here - but it's not a 'destination' area at which you're likely to want to spend several days.

I echo the other comments that this is a very nice park. It is right "next" to the water, but you can't see the water from your campsite because there is a 15' tall levee bank between you and the water. We stayed with 9 other rigs and had use of the largest cabana structure, which was wonderful. It had lights and heat and totally kept us out of the wind. This is a great place for a family reunion, or other group of rigs, so long as you can entertain yourselves on-site because there isn't a lot else nearby unless you are interested in fishing or wind-surfing.

Nice ocean 'front' park. Our site was across the campsite access road from the bluff overlooking the ocean, but the sites across from us had a wonderful view. Our site (A-26)was nice because it was in a grove of trees with no foliage on the trunks, but a canopy of foliage about 20'-30' up (similar to palm trees, but of course these were not palms). The site faced the wrong way to back our 32' fifth wheel into, but the camp host helped us come in the loop the 'wrong' way so we could back in. (Not all sites had a view of the ocean). Note that there is an additional fee of $5 to use the dump station, even if you're camping there. Here's a short list of what we think were the best sites for our future visits with our 32' fifth wheel. If you have a smaller rig, or are tent camping, other sites would be good as well. All of these overlooked the ocean: A13, A25, A27, F6, E6

This has to be the nicest RV park we've stayed in. The sites were set reasonably apart from each other and there were a lot of plantings between and around each site. The indoor pool was clean, and the surroundings were beautiful. Even though this is a casino campground, you can't see the casino from the RV park.

This is a county park, but very nice by those standards. It has 50 sites or so, each with hookups. AT&T cellular service is overridden by Rogers Cellular from Canada (across the Sound), which makes your calls, texts and data activities international; however AT&T says that they will credit these international costs since we’re really in the US. Park closes the gates at 10PM, so keep this in mind. Easy access to dump station which is included in the camping fee. There are two sets of campsites – the front set and the back set. Best sites in the front set: for back-in trailers, sites 25-32 offer great view of Puget Sound out the back window. Other sites below these back-in the wrong way and the back window doesn’t face the sound. But for motorhomes, the upper or lower sites also offer great views – but the middle row is blocked by the lower row. Many very private tent sites are also available.

Very nice state park. Heavily forested and the sites are nicely separated from each other. We stayed in a premium pullout site (#4) with power, water, and no sewer and enjoyed it. Note that this site is pretty exposed to the day-use picnic area. We were here mid-week and there was no problem, but on a weekend the picnic area might be busy. Nice hiking trails in the park – for the most part they were wide enough for two people to walk side-by-side and gradual inclines. The longer trail along the ‘back’ of the park trail map was narrower, but still very easy to navigate. We paid $30 and reserved well in advance. But when we arrived on June 28 (Sunday) there was still one site with utilities available for last-minute arrivals.

Nice RV Park. Sites are medium distance apart (5’-8’ between edges of the concrete pads) but were somewhat shielded from each other by plantings. Nearly all sites were pull through, only the sites along the back edge of the facility were back-ins. A plus/minus was that the grass between each site was sloped. The good news is that this reduced how much you looked into your neighbor’s window. The bad news is that there is very little space to put even a chair outside your RV and it is pretty pointless to open an awning. Depending on the size of your rig you could put a chair in front of your vehicle. The back-ins had a larger parking pad along side of the main RV site that could be used for a table and chairs, depending on the size of your vehicles.
