We couldn't get in Boyd Lake SP when it was full for the weekend ,so tried this park. The worker campers in office were nice but open hours are very limited. Looked like nearly every site was taken by full-time residents or long term visitors from out of state. Were told the Park has been purchased by owner of Riverview Rv Park down the street and eventually will not be open to over night campers. It was ok for our purposes, with cable, wifi and good electric. Bathrooms were small and very outdated; so was Laundry room. Most sites were tight and in full sun. Easy drive up Big Thompson canyon to Estes. Can't really recommend and it will be a residential-type place anyway.
At least this website prepared us for this overpriced park. But we were surprised on check-in to learn that they no longer have "60 channel cable TV", just 24 with the networks out of California, instead of Denver. At least our site wasn't too unlevel and only had one neighbor. Bathrooms were dirty and had standing water late at night. The RV office is inside the BBQ restaurant. The WiFi was weak, but Verizon MiFi was fine. We will try to avoid Cheyenne in the future but this park could be tolerable for one night . Maybe.
Very likeable, appealing park, with many shade trees and nice staff. Pool and swings for kids, clean restrooms, and laundry. We liked the varied rates for different size rigs and hookups. Great TV cable lineup. Most sites gravel but ours grass; glad it didn't rain. Very good RV car wash across street, a cheap gas station, and some fast food places plus a steakhouse all close by.
Pretty good city rv park. Easy exit from I-90, wide enough paved & shady sites, lots of cable channels, clean restrooms and laundry. Voltage was low upon hookup but there was enough breeze late in day to not use AC. Mid-summer could be a problem. Sewer cap was way back; glad we didn't need it on overnight. Nice lady in office let us pick our site. Price is high but includes taxes.
This park is good for an overnight on Passport America ($20). Can't see paying full price. Just a wide spot on the road next to the interstate and near the train tracks, but was quiet enough inside the coach at night. Laundry room was in good shape, with brand new washers. Just 2 showers but clean. Cable was 24 channels, no ESPN nor CNN. Would stop again just for the price deal, and convenience between Billings and Livingston.
The wonderful owners make this small park special. You can't tell when you arrive, right off the highway. Some of the sites are a bit tight but there's some shade, and the Yellowstone River is right there. Only one washer and dryer, so don't plan a big laundry day. Single shower is gorgeous, and somehow it worked out since most people used their own. Extensive TV cable, and needed to use the park WiFi since Verizon MiFi was weak. Cell was fine though. Just 2+ miles to town.
This is our overall favorite CG in the park since it has some almost-level sites, unlike the CGs elsewhere, and there is a cell phone tower nearby. Plus it's at 6200' so not as cold overnight as the others. Elk herds are always around, here or by the Lodge. Bathrooms in good shape and water nearby. Too bad there's not a dump station but it's a small CG. A shower house would be great too, but for the $10 half-rate (if you qualify), this is a deal. Hosts very nice and helpful. Try not to camp by the lower highway.
The previous reviewer has some wrong info. The rate at this CG is $29.60 w/tax, and half price for people with certain passes. It is centrally located in the Park,m but built on the side of a mountain and not for today's RVs. Your best hope is to make a reservation for a long site and arrive early afternoon for the site assignment. If it is too unlevel or treed, find a better one and ask for that . The tent sites looked pretty good for tenters. Bathroom bldgs are updated with recycling bins, and hot showers and laundry mat are nearby. Remember it's at 7900' and will be cold at night. You are there for the scenery and wildlife. Don't bring a big rig here.
New owners have worked hard on this small ,quiet park. All the sites now have gravel in between grass. See the website for rates, they vary quite a bit. While the top for full hookups is $44, there are some discounts and the W & E site is $35. Too bad most sites are in full sun on the 90 degree days but saw some nice shady pull-throughs. We liked the private bathrooms but not the little laundry room. Laundromat down the road, and some good places to eat in town. Will be back; very good place outside of Yellowstone NP.
We decided to try this park based on reviews, and to avoid the madhouse of Rocky Mtn. Hi park. Nice shady park but next to the noisy highway. Make sure you don't get that row. Price was higher than expected and a real disappointment when we got into our site. The manager did a great job of backing us in, considering how horribly narrow it was. The hookups were on the wrong side, and the cable was back in the trees. Used every inch of our cords, couldn't use hose. The neighbor's picnic table was 2' from our coach, and we had to sit on their bench just to open our storage bay. The big rig pull- thru sites looked much better. Verizon cell and mifi okay; good cable. Restrooms were clean but they oddly close an hour in the morning before checkout. Definitely not worth the price and don't plan to return.
This is an excellent forest service cg. Liked it so much last year, we reserved an Electric site for a weekend, but the $9 fee was unsettling. However, the base rate was just $24, then half off for Passes. Nice place to relax, with no internet, cell,etc. But the daytime highway noise gets loud. No dump station, but 2 water spigots available. Go to Big Sky for a cell signal, stop at the Hungry Moose for great eats, and many recycling bins nearby.
This park would rate higher but it was just too crazy busy, with campers waiting to check in blocking the street, people all over the place, big rigs running their 2 ACs, and the power voltage scary low. Voltage meter showed 108-112 all day; didn't get to 120 til midnight. Owner blew off our concerns. Sewer cap did not screw on. Water bib was duct-taped shut. Small, dated bathrooms; very tiny laundry room for such a big park. Painfully noisy highway and GF airport next to park, plus occasional AF jets flying over. Park has potential to be so much better. Only real reason to be here is to go to the Lewis & Clark Center and the Russell museum.
This is a small, family-owned park in a small town that has excellent repair shops (highly recommend Cut Bank Tire and also the Auto Body repair shop on the main street). The owners were super friendly and helpful to everyone so don't know what the previous reviewer's problem was. The $30 rate for 30 amp, GS discount was quite fair, with strong power, water and great tv cable.(more $$ for 50amp) Verizon cell and mifi worked fine. Nice showers and large restroom. Only 2 washers/dryers , for $4 load. Good place to stop before or after Glacier and much better than going to Shelby.
Overall, an outstanding national park campground, considering the mostly large sites, beautiful views, and showers- but only in one loop - and sites can be reserved online. The cost is $23; don't know why previous reviewer said $35. Certain Park passes allow half price, so we stayed 7 nights x $11.50. Had to move a few times, used Loop B and C. Never had anything level at all, but you're only there at night (and be sure to see the stars after 11pm) .
For a small country park with a lot of land and expansive views, this was a pleasant stop. Also helps to have Verizon 3G access on phone but 4G MiFi wouldn't work. Easy walk to town and over to the huge lodge. Very nice owner, casual park management. Only real drawback to us was the rustic bathrooms, which needed some serious cleaning. Showers are 25-50 cents. Community laundromat available. Will surely be back and stay longer.
This is the only RV park in Whitefish (KOA down the road), with a nice one mile walk or bike to town. Great restaurants there, plus a pretty City Beach over the bridge (drive to that), and a fantastic Farmers Market on Tuesday nights. The park has potential to be much better, given its location and the shade trees. Small laundry room and showers, but usually clean. Very tight roads and narrow sites. Very good cable TV. You check in at the Cheap Sleep motel; we never saw anyone in authority in the park. Avoid Site #34, next to the playground. Unsupervised kids left their toys and bikes in front of our rig, played with our water bib, screamed at each other. Another oddity was no outside lighting on the shower/laundry building nor street lights for the park.
Ditto on a previous reviewer's notes. This is our 3rd summer visit to Apgar. Totally love the location near Lake McDonald and Apgar Village, with the boat dock, shops,etc. Xanterra has the contract now so maybe they can upgrade the old bathrooms. Maybe even have a pay shower house? Price has stayed the same for years; quite a bargain with the half-off pass for $10. There was a lot of smoky haze for a week, due to the fires in WA state. Air quality in the area got really bad when the many Apgar campfires combined with the wildfire smoke. Be sure to take the free shuttle from the nearby Transit Center. This is also a great campground to commute by bike to the Village and Center.
Liked this campground when we arrived- loved the mountainside trees and ambiance. Very nice lady in office. She offered a site by the laundry/shower house, but then we drove the steep road up and found a narrow, short site at an odd angle. Since it was only for a night and we liked the location, we pulled nose in, same as the neighboring RV did, since it was impossible backing in. Site was slanted, very unlevel. Other camper had 3 boards under tires. Most neighbors were tenters or in small trailers so it was unwise to send 25-28' motor homes to this area. (never saw the "big rig" area but must be better sites). Lots of wood smoke late at night and families lined up for the 2 tiny, dirty showers at 10:30pm. Laundry room small but ok, Verizon works, some tv access. A nice place for the price but do check your campsite before moving in.
Chose this park over a nicer one in town due to the shade trees, and expected to have lower price due to past reviews. But those people had long term rates. Daily is $44.95 PLUS $2 for showers. Way too steep for this outdated country park. Trash bins overflowing for 2 days. Sites narrow but level and long. Voltage low. Laundry load almost $4, closes 8 PM. Cable TV was very good, and Verizon cell and MiFi worked. No info offered from front desk person about park Wi-Fi ,shower fees, rules, anything. Would still be OK for one night except for the price.
With the trees and landscaping, this a beautiful park for the area (hot and dry summers). Too bad Missoula only has 3 RV parks; this is the only one not aimed for families. Also, the city cracked down on the Wal-Mart parkers, so now you really need to reserve ahead of time. We did but got an "overflow" site by the busy office and loud highway, in full sun , full hookups but no cable TV. And full price. No one helps with blind side back-ins or situations. Oh well, there's a nice overpriced laundry room @$4 a load, clean spacious showers, and comfortable lounge area. Missoula is an interesting, outdoorsy town. We'd stay longer if there was a better choice with quiet, shady sites.
This little pocket park is basically the same since last visit 5 years ago but has a new owner and more traffic since the town "suburbs" have grown down Electric street. Lots of dust from the gravel alley road on corner. Our back-in site had no shade and all the dust, but that's what $35 gets in West Yellowstone. The 2 workamper hosts were very friendly and helpful. Easy walk or bike ride to town attractions: don't miss the bears and wolves. Cable TV is now just 12 channels. Full hookups were fine. But Verizon MiFi didn't work, so used slow park Wi-Fi. VZ cell was OK. Some excitement when no hot showers due to zero park propane, and then the power happened to cut off. Would still return, and hope for a better site. Popular place.
We had a somewhat similar experience as the previous reviewer. We came in early July,expecting to get the 15% Escapees club discount, per the Guidebook, on the (inflated) $40 daily rate. The curt cashier said NO Discounts in July. The workamper we met later was much nicer and offered to pass on the discrepancy to the absentee owner. Nevertheless, we had to pay the full $40 and felt quite ripped off. Consider that the monthly rate is $450 ($15 day!). The previous camper was lucky he came in June for the Passport America rate. There was no TV antenna reception; our Verizon cell and MiFi were slow but better than the bad park Wi-Fi. The highway noise on the front row was loud all night. The sewer cap was a foot below ground and the water spigot also low, so we didn't use them. The view of the mountains and lake is really nice, and the big laundromat was welcome. Otherwise, there are many other better choices in the area, both private and government campgrounds.
Be sure you have Passport America if you stop here. There's no way this is worth $40. It's fine for a $20 overnight stop, with nice shade trees (not all sites) and good electric. Well water was smelly and the sewer was far away in our pull thru site, so we didn't use them. Got a few stations on antenna. Tiny bathroom/laundry bldg. Just one toilet and shower per gender. Bear World across the street is a fun stop and the best thing in Rexburg.
Agree this is a nice little park. The big shade trees really make a difference, though not every site has one. Got here early and was able to pick shady, level site near laundry & showers. But later, a family kept walking thru our site, right under our window. They seemed to have difficulty understanding English (and RV etiquette). Laundry room was small but affordable. Only 2 showers but nice restroom. Cable TV was disappointing, but clear and electric and water were fine. Strong VZ signals and park WiFi seems strong too. GS rate $31.68 . Good park for short visits.
This was a convenient stop and just about worth $15, as PA rate. Older trailer park, huge sites but crumbling concrete & weeds. We needed to use the showers in the old mobile home set up for that, but they were filthy. Pool was overrun with kids on the weekend and dirty, too. Verizon cell and jetpack worked fine, but park voltage dropped very low on hot day. OK for an overnight on PA.
What a fantastic place. Deserves it's 10s in Woodalls. They may go overboard with the gated community look, but this is a very well-done new park, with a beautiful mountain view. We had the least expensive site, a back-in with gravel that was level and spacious enough. The back sewer was not very close, and some sites had sewer in the middle. Extensive cable TV was excellent, and the the private bathrooms were great. Nice pool and spa, clubhouse. We'll be back!
This is one of the nicest Passport America parks we've been to, and a relief after some bare bones parking lots. Shade trees, cable TV, laundry, very nice spacious restroom. Would have rated higher except that all the sites on our north row were tipped way forward, couldn't level. Asked the young desk guy for shade on our west side, but site had none. He did agree to let us switch. It was nearly 100 degrees, and only had 112 volts on hookup. (He didn't understand why that was a concern.) But we were able to run the AC, and voltage came up to 120 about midnight. Would not pay full price for this but appreciated Passport America. And try not to come through Moab in summer.
Park is a decent value at the Passport America rate, though you will be assigned to the "Overflow" area, in our experience. Had a fiasco day: Upon arrival, told to wait or go sightsee til load of gravel could be brought and spread for this "site". Came back much later, not ready. Sent to a shaded site that was going to be given to TWO campers coming in later. (Most of the park is for residents.) It was 93 degrees, we hooked up electric, then were told about 6 PM to move to the overflow,which we discovered had no promised hookups...so pulled nose in, and stretched cords to neighbor's power box. Site was in full sun, though level. Manager was a nice lady but not juggling things well. There is a nicer park closer to town ,with large shade trees, and a WalMart as well. Won't be back here.
Stopped here for the Passport America rate, about 8 miles out of Pagosa. Strange place to be called Happy Camper. Just a gravel lot along the noisy highway. Small laundry and shower rooms not cleaned. Sewer cap was almost a foot off the ground, so if you need that, look around for a lower one. OK for a quick overnight if you can shut out road noise.
At this high $$ rate, we only stopped here because we had business to do in town, plus needed a good VZ (not the park WiFi) internet connection, after being in the Parks. Extensive cable TV was a bonus too. But sewer outlets are out of the way and too high. Bathrooms are cramped and several washer/dryers out of service. Staff and guests rudely walked through our site (in between office and bathroom/laundry) all day long, even when we moved the picnic table closer to our door. We stayed home due to rain and cold weather, not expecting the parade of humanity next to our window and door. So try to avoid sites near the showers and laundry, or go elsewhere: though everything in Jackson is overpriced.
We stayed in one of the ADA electric hookups sites for $35.50; would have been even more without our passes. Rate is ridiculous but really needed the hookup. Site very wide and paved. Restroom super clean but no soap or dryer: even Colter Bay has that. Highlight was seeing moose in the campground.
Infrastructure in this area is from the 1950's per staff, and in dire need of help. Too bad the GTLC has raised the rates again. Thank goodness for our discount passes. We were assigned a really bad site but allowed to find a better one. Still, too many big rigs along the road and running noisy generators most of the day. The campground had some kind of maintenance crisis one night and had to evacuate 4 of the loops. The the boiler went out in the Village laundry/shower house: so, no hot water there. Jackson Lake reservoir was drawn down, so the Colter marina was closed and boats gone in late August. Sad to see such disrepair.
Our favorite cg in YNP, if we get a good site. Prefer A loop because of closeness to showers and Village. And strong VZ cell signal but little internet reception. Get in early afternoon and they may let you go look at empty sites. Many are narrow with tree overhang. Showers are included, and half off discount for fed passes.
Even the nice view from the bluff and the gorgeous tile and granite bathrooms doesn't justify the $58 regular daily rate for a full hookup site with cable TV. If you can accept the excessive rate and really want to stay in town, you can have this park. Gruff staff, steep hill to the park, expensive laundry, many rules, only 24 cable channels at the "deluxe" sites, mostly no shade, but level sites with patch of grass. Verizon signal was fine so we didn't use their Wi-Fi. Final straw was checkout time of 10:30 AM, no exceptions. Won't be back.
This is such a nice little park. A pleasant surprise, considering it looked like a gravel parking lot from the road. But it's got some shade and a pretty setting on the river. There seemed to be a lot of summer and monthly guests who take most of the spaces with their big rigs, leaving few sites for overnighters. It did bother us to pay $40 for no amenities except the 60 channel cable TV, which the other local parks have too. And there's only one washer and dryer, so that can be a problem. Just one toilet and shower per gender, but it's a beautiful restroom. Very nice, helpful owner/manager.
Previous reviewer is right- this place is a mess. Vicious dogs in the Manager's mobile home act like they'll eat you for knocking on the wall (the door is blocked off). Other dogs roam around the park. Resident kids on bicycles ride through all sites, even if you are standing by your rig. Kids and adult residents are outside partying late at night. Cigarette butts and trash are all over the grounds. Fire in one mobile home brought out the entire city fire department. Bathrooms were frequently trashed with cigarette ashes and dirt in sinks. Constant noise from nearby Interstate. Sewer and water hookups are poorly placed, into the next site. We used to stop here for the convenient location and cheaper price, but the place gets worse every year. Could be okay for an overnight desperation stop, but wait to find the manager (who's a nice woman) in the morning. Don't knock on that home/office/dog kennel at night.
Very nice Forest Service CG with electric hookups on southern loop. Reservable online , with some walk-up sites- we got a good one on a weekday afternoon. Base rate is $14; half off for certain govt. passes, then + $2 for electric. Super friendly, busy hosts. Large, mostly level sites. Clean vault toilets. Big Sky is up the road and has a small market with good deli food . You can get a cell phone signal there; none in CG.
One of the better places in the park, due to location, price, and that you can get Verizon cell and Internet service- though it's dry camping, of course. No elk visitors, maybe too hot for them - little shade here. Office staff let us choose a site since it wasn't busy. Regular charge is $20; half price with Pass. Generators ok 8am-8pm. Please don't run them all day and pollute the area.
Still a rustic, scenic place but worth a visit for a quiet overnight, and easy walk across street to the hot springs. Senior rate of $20 makes it worthwhile not having cell phone access at all. Supposed to be wifi at the office shack but didn't try it for computer. Showers/restroom building was ok. Nothing fancy anywhere here. Drive up from Highway 93 is no problem. Might be good idea to look at other parks on the way.
Well-maintained park, and very popular. Nice to have space between sites, and good laundry (but not enough machines and pricey, $2 each); very clean restrooms. Cable isn't that great: some channels snowy and less than 30 total (not like others with 60+), if you care about TV. Park is at the far west end of Missoula. Trains go by the back area, which has no shade either. VZ cell and Internet good. Rate was $34 total with GS and tax.
We have mixed feelings about this park. It's got a nice country setting but a strange, crowded layout ,with RVs and extra vehicles packed in everywhere. Manager even commented on "30 rigs in the overflow area " on a Sat. night. Park is popular with families, so kids are all over the streets and thru the sites. We reserved a pull thru ,shady site but got a back-in sunny one. Biggest problem was erratic power, jumping between 108 and 124 all day. Manager claimed it must be our rig. When we needed to stay another day, we were moved, and that site had perfect power. Seemed strange that there was no security patrol in such a big place, no workampers, no visible repair people. Bathrooms were never clean; too many people using them. Cable tv was very good, Verizon cell and internet strong. Will avoid this park during the busy season and try another. Too bad Kalispell doesn't have a first rate park. Town is growing; has a lot to offer.
Return visit, and things are the same. Same rate (and half price to $10 with proper pass) and same ill-fitting sites. Level does not exist. Big rigs really shouldn't come here. This campground is for the truck campers, tents, smaller trailers and motor homes. Lots of families having fun and all ages on bikes. Verizon cell and air card only work near host sites and in Apgar Village & Transit Center. Water available from spigots and in restrooms. Fee showers but not in the Village. They are only in private CGs outside. We rate this a 7 for the ambiance, great location, and overall camping experience. Will return, but weekdays work best. Hard to get in on the weekends. No reservations and fills up nearly every day.
We liked stopping here in the past, to ride the bike trail which goes through for 73 miles and to visit the nearby towns, but timing was bad this year - an ATV festival was going on, and the park was crammed with RVs, ATVs, cars, trucks, tents, bikes, etc. on every blade of grass and inch of gravel. Tiny shower rooms were trashed and the cable TV was worthless. Verizon cell and air card worked okay. Road noise from I-90 is intense. Manager and crew very helpful - on site all the time.
The glowing review from 2 years ago fooled us into staying here, since we wanted to ride the bike trail along the lake. The park is very convenient for that, plus water sports. Some of the sites on the lakefront have shade trees, although they are narrow sites and you might get a stupid neighbor. The older couple next to us decided to pull forward instead of backing in for the proper hookups. Since their electric cord was too short (duh), they just plugged into our power pole. We were on the 30amp, so they used the 20amp. And our voltmeter dropped to the danger zone, below 110. Luckily, we had not turned on the AC yet, though it was very hot. Told the neighbor to plug into his own power pole ! Things got more hectic as 2 rental trucks showed up with tents and supplies for a bike excursion company that took over the grass tenting area,and some 30 or so cyclists arrived, mostly families. They proceeded to trash the one restroom/shower house, which was pretty nasty anyway, since it's open to ANYONE. We were happy to be on the trail but not in these conditions. If you have a big rig and they can fit you in and you don't use the shower, you'll be better off...but good luck with the steep driveway into the park. At least the cell and internet worked fine on Verizon. By the way, that solitary shower takes quarters only. Can't believe we paid $35 plus shower money for this dusty parking lot.
This is one of the better Passport America parks, especially since there are no date restrictions. Paying the discount $18.50 made our one night stay tolerable, because it was 105 degrees. The overnighters are only parked next to the loud, busy road, and the Wi-fi was terrible (luckily, our VZ hotspot worked). Cable TV was great though, and showers and laundry fine. Road into park did seem narrow; big rigs should be careful. And don't come when it's 105.
Oregon has great state parks - this one is awesome. Huge area on hillsides from Highway 26, with bike trails everywhere- but a lot of climbing; a real workout. Sites are mostly large and comfy. West side has more trees, but many sites are still in open meadows. We had tree dust and sap on our rig. Showers had standing water and trash, so we reported to host and the Ranger. They had a staffing issue and cleaned up asap. Had great Verizon cell and internet but no TV. Very popular place, reservations suggested, though we did snag a weekday site at 1pm.
Fairly nice park with some oddities that would be very annoying if staying more than a few nights. As mentioned by others, sites are very long, but not level and narrow. And they are on very long rows, making quite a hike to the laundry and restrooms. Water hookups are well-water, in back of site. Have to get a special box to watch cable stations. Laundry takes tokens, so get them from office while it's open. Very bright street lights at each site shine into your rig, and planes are above. Four showers, but messy. Still, we liked the river location and trees, so it was an okay place.
Previous reviews are right- this is a very nice big rig park. And do not follow GPS from the north. Easy to find coming from the south 101 in Warrenton. Be sure to gas up at Costco there; Fred Meyer also on 101. Park is almost 5 miles away. They now have one roomy co-ed bathroom and a co-ed shower room. Office said they're never used (due to big rigs) yet there were several shower users each night. Would have been nice to have a 2nd shower, one for each gender. Our site had 50 amp adapters on the pedestal- a first. Sites are gravel; we had a slope and were very close to another rig. Huge area for dogs & disc golf . No one bothered to leash their dogs- they were pretty happy. We weren't thrilled with the price. but there's nothing in Astoria.
Thanks to this website reviews, we knew what we were getting into with the location on 101. It is definitely loud daytime, and mostly tolerable at night with the doors closed. Great cable TV and Verizon worked fine on cell and air card. Sites are gravel do lots of dust gets kicked around. Very nice grassy tent area but weekend campers, mostly young people, kept walking through RV sites going to the bathroom or store. Bathrooms were okay and roomy but only 2 showers. OK for short stay. Good Sam price.
Super state park, just south of Manzanita. Can ride your bike to town on safe path, and also on a loop road around the park. Several beach access trails in sand, huge beach. Sites are narrow blacktop with trees in some, others wide open. Didn't want to reserve, so came on a Wednesday at 1pm in mid-July. No problem getting a good site, assigned by Ranger, but given choices on map. Many families here, kids playing in street, etc. Restrooms in good shape, plenty of hot water. Overall, a better experience than other campgrounds. Liked this place a lot! Surprised to have strong Verizon signal for cell and internet. Will have to come back here again!
Pleasantly surprised by this nice little park. Garibaldi is a good stop along 101 for a few days. The park is well-taken care of, and staff is super-friendly. Gravel sites with grass strips, mostly level. Many of the "pull throughs" by the Bay have a sidewalk in front, with a somewhat steep drop to the street, so take a good look before you leave. (It was easy for our small coach to back out of the site.) The sewer hookups were way in the back, needing extra hoses. They have a nice new laundry/shower room. Good seafood places nearby, and 2 cannery outfits, plus the harbor. Fun to walk around. Verizon service fine too, and many cable TV stations.
The Good Sam rate was $37.82, which we took in desperation for the Portland area. Nice wooded park, but entry is scary: steep parking incline for office check-in, then more incline into sites. Ours wasn't level at all, but was close to very nice shower and laundry room. Fine stop for overnight. Super nice owner / manager. but other office assistant. was clueless about area.
If you want a pull through gravel site across the street from the Cheese Factory on loud, busy 101, here it is. We were ok with this place for an overnight , although it didn't seem worth $35 (31.82 GS) especially when the shower cost 50c for 6 minutes and is scalding hot, without any dials to change the temperature. Highway noise is painful outside; somewhat tolerable inside. Cable TV was very good. Sewer caps are quite highly set. Hard to recommend this park.
The small overnight travel section was full of Passport America refugees looking for a good deal. The $13 rate (with tax) makes this an okay short stop. Be warned you can't have a really big rig, will need several sewer hoses, leveling jacks, and preferably no need to use their tiny showers. This is a small run down trailer park with a side business for RVers, plus small boats for fishing, crabbing, etc.
For a state park, this is still a great place with the bike trails and beach access. But it's so big that the restrooms, and especially the showers, get trashed by kids, families. We enjoyed a rare warm, sunny day and 3 cloudy ones but won't be back for awhile. Gets to be a zoo here in the busy summer.
This is one of our favorite parks but it's gotten pricey. Regular rate end of June was $42; Good Sam $37. Love the location under the bridge, walk to Aquarium and mall, and Fishtails Cafe. Great laundromat, but only one shower. Decent cable TV. Regular park looks a lot better than the run-down annex nearby.
An old trailer park with a few spaces for travelers, mostly PA members. What makes this worth $15 is the extensive cable TV, closeness to Florence, and the price. The showers and restrooms are OK, but water reeks of rust. The laundry still has rusty machines that we noticed 2 years ago. If you are desperate enough, this place is tolerable for a night.
This is a welcome stop for us- we appreciate the easy walk to Old Town from the park, and now there's Face Rock Creamery down the street, with great cheeses and ice cream. The park has an Internet Good Sam special now; $24 is a great rate. Lots of cable TV stations, clear signals for Verizon, nice shower (but only one per gender). Not crazy about the gravel parking lot and close sites, but it's fine overnight.
Have stayed here before. The park is likable; although, not a "resort". But the freeway noise is so intense you can't stay outside long at all. Sites are narrow, but at least the connections all worked, with clear cable, and great signals on Verizon. RV wash across the street. Loved the big bathroom and spacious showers. Lots of seasonals or live-ins now. Call for overnight and see the website map first. Different rates for sites.
Very pleasant place to stop for a night or two. Nice grassy grounds and shade trees, quiet except for some hiway noise. Great cable TV lineup and reception. Small bathroom and laundry room so plan ahead. Very nice, helpful owner. Good VZ aircard and cell coverage. Hookups in back of sites can be troublesome.
Good place to overnight along 84. The rate and the park haven't changed in years, but the grumpy old man in office is gone. Cable reception could be better, sites are close, and the locals look a little rough. Still, it works for a night.
Fun place to stay if you like a great hot springs soak. Very nice pools, good rates. Small grassy campground down hill, W & E fine. No VZ cell nor internet. Fun discovery. More hot springs along the road nearby.
We like our overnight stops here. The PA rate is great ($17+ w/tax): cable tv, level, grass and trees, river nearby, and friendly staff. Too bad only one restroom shack was available in June of 2013, due to work on the other. Always worth a stop here.
Sadly, the 2012 summer drought has drained the lake to such a low level in August, that swimming is not allowed and the marina is closed weekdays. There were still some private boats out, but the campground was not nearly as busy as normal. We could have saved the $10 online reservation fee and just shown up. Wasn't even worth paying the $20 campsite fee plus the $8 entry, due to the lake and the 99 degree heat. Wonderful bike paths and some decent shade in some sites: we liked loop A, tho it sure wasn't level. Bathrooms were awesome for a state park, though you have to pay at least 75c for a shower. They even have a nice laundry room. Will try again next year.
Previous reviewer mistaken; this is NOT a Passport America park. However, they do have the usual club discounts: we paid $26.62 for a night. This is a good stop on I-80 and we now prefer it to the dusty park next door. Both are noisy since the highway is close-by. Sites are gravel, fairly level but the hookup locations were a challenge. Excellent cable TV, and spotless restrooms and laundry.
Kind of a sad little place and very over-priced. As others said, somewhat run down and needs a lot of work, though bathrooms have been renovated. Right next to the highway, so noisy up front. Lots of tents and residents in older rigs. Watch out for high voltage and poor water quality (as tested). Verizon cell and MiFi worked fine; no mention of Wi-Fi by office. Most sites in shade, not level. Sat TV instead of cable, not many channels.
OK place. The big shade trees made the heat almost bearable and worth staying here, along with the many cable TV channels. Bathrooms were quite clean at noon, but that didn't last long since there are only 2 showers per gender. Manager/owner (?) was helpful, but this park has tight turns for big rigs. They will help navigate.
Ditto on what the others said. This really is a nice place, though it looked pretty dry in August after a long hot summer. Wonderful private bathrooms, very large and clean. Laundry OK too. I didn't use WiFi because there was a decent signal on Verizon Mi-Fi late at night. In Dubois, stop at the Bighorn Sheep center, and eat at the Cowboy Cafe. There is a RV wash on the main drag.
Previous comments are dead on about this over-priced, poorly designed park. You'll be crammed into narrow gravel sites with your sewer close to the door of your neighbor. No place to park at check-in without blocking campers. But workampers seemed like they were organized to get people in quickly. Convenient to Jackson; great summer town. Disappointed to find tiny, cramped showers which were a mess. Would never pay $63 (and that's with the GS/AAA discount) for a park like this anywhere else. At least the cable TV was pretty good.
Yes, the campground is old and unimproved but the Village setting makes it worth a stay. Easy to walk or bike over to VC, laundry, showers, and marina. Much to do and beautiful view of Tetons, though it was smoky/hazy in August. Also, the Colter Bay area had a water main break so they had to bring in port-potties and water tanker trucks. Really roughing it! Not as crazy busy as Yellowstone.
This would be a nice cg if there were level sites in the forest area. The meadow area looked more promising but is so close to the camp road. Our 30' pull through site was very narrow and totally sloped. Second time that's happened in Bridge Bay, so won't be back. Also, campers left fires unattended, host didn't care.
This was a strange little place, run by a slightly daffy senior woman. Dismaying to see the trashed out pigsty office of her home trailer, so try not to go in. She takes everyone on a "tour" of the park in her old, belching golf cart, even though you can see almost everything from the office anyway. There are some pull through sites for travelers. If you need cable, make sure it works at your site; my neighbor's didn't and he paid more. Bathrooms are also old and showers a bit grungy. Laundry OK but only 2 W & D sets. The only reason we stopped here was because the dopes in Cut Bank lost our reservation, and this was the next park with cable TV and laundry. Would be all right for a desperation overnight only. Grocery store and banks are very close.
Place looks like Dogpatch but it somehow works. Good price and cable TV, close enough to town to walk or bike. Management is accommodating. Sewer hookups are mostly inconvenient, water is great, sites are tight but long. Bathrooms are ancient- can't close the door when you're on the toilet. Single machines in Laundry room are worthless, city laundromat and grocery store nearby.
It's in a beautiful setting and the big rig people in pull throughs with sat TV and internet were probably happy, but we disliked this place. Took a site in the woods to be closer to shower house but nearby family trashed the showers, which don't have a shelf or seat to put your stuff, but otherwise is a nice room. Electric was excellent but never found the "central" water. Bummed that the "cell phone booster" in the outside pavilion was useless. Phone and internet signals dropped; others struck out too. Paid too much for nothing.
This is the only cg on the east side that you can reserve, and you must. Fills early and daily. Good luck picking a site online; they don't tell you that many are sloped- ours was awful. But was close to restroom and spigot, nice view. Biked to VC and shuttle. Town is further: groceries, shops and great cafes. Happy to get good Verizon signal from site and there's camper showers in loop C (get tokens from Ranger). Bathroom didn't have toilet paper for 2 days and hosts were lazy, but otherwise this was a good visit.
Fun place to stay, loved the location. Easy bike or walk to the Transit Center, and Apgar Village. Wish we could have stayed longer, or if they had a shower house nearby. No reservations so you have to cruise around for a site. Be sure to check the Park's campground status page beforehand. Many sites are unsuitable for a RV. Verizon cell and internet worked very weakly in Loop C; signals better by Village. Had a bear in the campground!
Yep, it's a nice quiet place in the trees, though way out in the country. Would have liked it more if the bathrooms had been cleaned over the busy weekend and kids hadn't trashed them. Management was indifferent to that mess and the laundry room's (cig butt on table, broken machines). Pull through sites were a bit tight due to trees, but shade was wonderful. Super cable TV, Verizon worked okay. Kalispell is worth a return visit.
This worked out well...had a pull through site that was level and better than ones in Madison. Mostly families and tourist in tents and trailers, not much generator racket. Easy bike ride ride to VC , store, and showers- which were super. Be sure to make reservations in the busy summer season.
Love this park, always stop here in GTNP but July is just too busy with families and noisy generators. Some people are really inconsiderate , leaving their stupid generators on all day, even when the weather is pleasant. Rate is $20. 50, before Golden discount. Sites are assigned now. Verizon cell worked ok but internet access poor unless you stand by the office.
I wouldn't want to pay $30 for Nowhere, WY but this nice park was worth it for an overnight. Mostly great long, level, pull through, private sites with grass and views. Verizon cell and air card worked fine; park's WiFi is weak. No cable therefore no TV at all. Good pit stop before going to Jackson.
We always stop here between Santa Fe and Denver in the off-season. It was mid-May this time and the pool was actually open. I agree this park is over-priced for its location and lack of amenities out of summer, but they have great cable TV, decent sites, clean spacious bathrooms, and a nice little doggie park. So it's a good overnight stop as long as the price doesn't go up .
Varying price levels. When you make a reservation (and you should), don't let them sweet talk you into the more expensive sites unless you want that. Otherwise, this is a convenient place to tour town, especially via the city bus to the Plaza. Rental cars companies are nearby too. Most sites here are without shade and subject to traffic noise. Short cable TV list , Wi-Fi ok. Bathrooms clean but very small shower stalls. We'll look elsewhere next time for more value.
OK for overnight. Good daily rate of $17, just $15+ for GS. Mostly level, gravel site, a little tight. Disliked the one bathroom set-up, but you get what you pay for. But they had very good cable TV. There's a RV wash a few blocks away and traffic noise was tolerable.
Beautiful, convenient setting in Sedona, and that saves all the "hidden" problems. We've been here several times and have never had a remotely level site, and the sewer hookups are crazy, usually in your neighbor's picnic area. Cramped laundry room; only 2 showers and toilets per gender. These are heavily used since so many campers are in vans and small RVs, but the staff does clean twice a day. Wonderful shade trees, but you'll leave with tree sap and bird droppings . Wi-fi works, so does Verizon air card, cell phone, and great cable TV. Park is pricey but they do have a tiered system (see website). Because it's Sedona, we'll be back and pay through the nose.
We stayed here as part of a package deal on the train ride to GC, bus tour and lunch. Regular rate is $39 before any discounts. Very nice park, wonderful bathrooms although no hot water one night, and no shower shelf for shampoo,etc. Paved sites not level and would be very hot in summer. Hookups well-placed but cable tv had some problems. Nice walk to town and depot. Train ride was long & boring, would rather drive to the Park.
Huge park that was nice and quiet in mid-April when many snowbirds had left and you can use the PA rate for a week. Otherwise, $50-$75 is way too much,especially with the activities closed down. There is a pull-through row just for RVs in the back, with basic cable and strange hookup locations. Also some large premium sites for $75. Pretty hot here in April; palm trees don't give much shade. Several nice pools spaced around, though they need cleaning. New pickel ball courts and bocce ball area. Convenient location to mid-Mesa.
Super nice park- it hasn't changed that much from when it was Beaudry's, but it still so much better than the average AZ park. Nice to be in a real RV park instead of one for snowbirds. Down side is contending with young families who don't respect park rules: 2 families traveling together took over the main pool for a full weekend- kids playing in the spa, trashing the restroom, loudly playing in the pool and streets til late at night. Seemed strange the Security patrol never came by or did anything. Otherwise, the park facilities are inviting. Would have liked more cable stations (just 20+) and better Wi-Fi. Off-season rates are a good value. Be sure to check website for deals.
Very strange that the previous reviewer gave this old park a 9, especially considering the unappealing area it's in. And maybe their site was actually level and had useful hookups, which ours didn't. Showers were a bit cramped and lacked privacy. This was an OK place but would never pay full price ($37 w/ tax ). PA rate allowed for 2 nights; Fine for overnight .
We had a members' rate of $3 and still left after just 3 days, tired of tracking dirt into the RV and wanting a nicer park. The only improvement to this dump in the last 10 years has been upgrading the cable tv system. Now there's finally a clear picture and 60 channels. Bathrooms weren't cleaned in the 4 days we looked, and the pool didn't look too good either. Benson has many other RV parks, all better than this. There's some country charm except for the nearby highway.
This is no longer owned by WH; it's an affiliate and open to the public at $40. Thank goodness we still got a WH rate, but is only worth the $9. Place has not been updated in many years but they have renovations "planned" for next fall. Spa was boarded up, park in general was looking tired. At least the rest rooms are clean . Easy pull through sites for overnight.
We had a 3 nights free pass from The Rally, and stayed longer. Regular rate is ridiculous $55. They gave us 10% GS rate and then PA rate kicked in for 50% on April 1st. As nice as the amenities are here, it's too pricey. We liked the "transient" area in the back because it has cable tv hookups. Road noise wasn't that bad, but you get jets flying over. As mentioned before, they have the stupid rip-off card system in the laundryroom. Giving this park a high score for the very nice pools, spa and fitness room, plus free cable, which is hard to find in Phoenix.
Worked out well for overnight. Convenient, quiet, clean and spacious restroom, plus laundry and cable TV was perfect. PA rate $16.50 so seemed like a great value. Many rigs pulling in late pm but lots of room.
Very basic place but looks better than the ones shoe-horned on the main drag through town. This is up a hill, with a pretty view and quiet. Sites seem big enough and cable TV is welcome though doesn't always work well at every site. No Wi-Fi but Verizon air card works. Only real complaint is the outdated bathroom with a shower curtain over the single toilet. Fine for overnights, would never spend a cold,windy winter here.
Thanks to the reviewers who mentioned the new owners and the upgrades here. We came back to Rainbow Lake, which was previously an awful dump . New showers and laundry room are super. They just need to put in more jacket hooks in the bathroom and a stool or shelf in the showers. No mention of Wi-Fi, but Verizon aircard and cell worked, and you get some Idaho TV stations on antenna. Nice to be able to choose own site. Most are level and very long, but if the place is ever full, rigs will be parked closely together. Good deal for Rexburg; be sure to see Bear World.
Really nice small town park. Chose this for the good reviews and great cable TV. Got a quiet, shaded & level back-in along the creek. Wish the showers were not so cramped and the toilets had a door instead of curtain. Owners very nice.
Mellow place with friendly hosts & manager. No rules sheet nor cable TV list at check-in; that's good and bad. Some of the weekend campers got pretty noisy and obnoxious. Already very noisy from close-by I-90. Verizon air card and cell work okay. Many cable TV channels. Park is close to bike path. Strange little shower rooms , small restroom, small laundry- rather rustic place, but shade trees and ambiance were mostly nice.
Beautiful setting on river, lovely grass & flowers- park is in much better condition outside than inside the buildings. Only a few showers which were well-used and messy. The spa was closed. Several miles from town. Pricey at $40, especially being parked inches away from next site (shared utilities). Great cable TV, but Wi-Fi and Verizon air card painfully slow. Owner did fantastic job backing us in to the narrow but level site. Wife a bit brusque, but this is basically a nice place. Enjoyed Leavenworth.
Will have to come back and spend more time in this area. Had planned to take the ferry to San Juan but weather was bad. Then discovered the great bike path going through back half of park and the nice clubhouse and beach, which was never mentioned by staff at check-in. Our site was in the dusty, very noisy, cheaper front section. Cable TV was good, strong Verizon signals. Watch out for rutted, narrow entry road. Use the SKP discount, or PA off-season.
Previous reviewer wasn't kidding; voltage here is quite low in the travelers' pull-through sites. Never got over 112. Summer weather here is cool; you won't need AC; in fact, we had the heat on sometimes. Was bothered more by the very weak Verizon cell and aircard reception. There is wi-fi in the clubhouse. Forget TV; we couldn't get any networks, but some folks with higher antennas did. Not very many overnight hook-up sites, but you can't beat the $16.50 price for this area.Residents have been here a long time and keep mostly to themselves; large elderly population. Didn't seem like a SKP park except for the travelers. Cheap laundry room, but you have to sign up. Only 2 showers in park, which seemed ridiculous. We'll come back if in area but only to save money...but hoping they'll fix the voltage problem.
Really like this huge park and the bike trails & beach but when it's busy, things get crazy in the campground. We were lucky to get a site without a reservation, but the campers nearby were rather rude. Kept walking AND bicycling through our site to the restrooms- we had to ask them not to, and also put up a sign on the picnic table. One woman was walking her dog without a leash for 2 days and even took him into the restroom. Told the hosts, but they never toured the loop- seemed pretty overwhelmed anyway by all the people. Sites were jam-packed with families and tents. Bathroom ran out of toilet paper; was pretty messy. Will come back and hope for better ambiance in loop, and even some sun.
Stayed here because the reviews on the other park were worse, but this over-priced park was a mess. Desk staff gave us an incorrect invoice with someone else's name. Then the site was totally unlevel, with a large electrical box in the rear at our door step. Had to beg for a different site, which was better. No workampers around, no one enforcing rules, so campers had clotheslines from the trees, towels everywhere. Bathrooms were trashed, pretty disgusting;not enough showers and toilets. Pool full of unsupervised kids. But hey, the cable TV was great. VZ service was weak - park has Wi-Fi but you must get code, they won't offer it first. Local free bus shuttle picks up nearby. Nice shade and landscaping . But won't stay here again. Too crowded, poorly run, and not worth $$$.
We were in the "cheaper" area, tight sites along very close road that locals like to zoom on (potholes and all). Laundry room very small, have to sign up. Showers almost needed that too. But this place was okay for an overnight and if you fish, you'll stay longer. Pretty and quiet setting on bay . VZ aircard, cell and cable TV all worked fine.
Great place. Loved the bay view of bridge & sunset. Bike path to Aquarium and south jetty. Nice hosts, spacious sites. Kind of expensive, but GS discount. Good laundry room, clean restroom but only one shower. Will come back and stay longer, it's worth the cost. Cheaper sites in the grubby Annex close to bridge, and huge parking lot dry sites ($17+). Cable TV only had 20+ stations; others in town have 60+...only drawback besides price. Oh- The town bus comes by; you can ride free (with a pass from office) to the bay front and beyond.
Sad little place in a good location, off the town bay front. Arrived late (because Elks lodge was full) with only a few sites open- many full-time residents here. Only one that wasn't jammed up against a neighbor was along the road and next to the dumpster. Our door opened into the busy road. Only one working bathroom available, with shower and toilet inside, so long wait. Office staff gal sat outside and smoked, very indifferent to park. Cable TV was great. Won't be back.
An okay place, but only if you can level your coach. Sites are terraced, seriously sloped. We chose a cheaper back-in, which was wrecked with ruts, potholes, and cracks. 30amp plug-in was strangely upside down. It was too late to move. Great cable TV lineup, bathrooms spacious tho outdated. No shade at all, but fairly quiet setting. Will try state park next time.
Wish there were more Elks campgrounds like this, not just lodge parking lots. A nice set-up in the woods, 5 miles from town. Verizon cell and air card didn't work, but park has decent, unsecured Wi-Fi. Cable TV was a bit disappointing: only the networks, no cable stations. Very nice bathroom except for just one, busy shower. Some pull-through sites; mostly back-ins, not very level. Call for reservations, and come early to see your site. We got stuck with a crappy one, though others were empty.
Really pretty park, too bad it's still priced like a KOA. Not quite worth the rates but if you can afford it, stay here. Very helpful workampers, nice owners, gorgeous landscaping. Was too cold to use the pool and hot tub (except to the unsupervised children running around). Sites by highway are on a slope and get a LOT of road noise, another reason it's not worth $50, but there are quieter sites in the back. Had to use extra length of hose for sewer, and cable tV was only for networks, same access as antenna. So overall, this is not a $50 "resort." They also charge to use the mini-golf. VZ aircard and cell work ok.
We like Bend a lot but this park is a bummer. Got stuck in an awful site next to office and noisy highway. Sewer hookup was way forward,water faucet in an uncovered dirt hole. Had to drive uphill to dump tanks and get water, then unhook, move back down to actual site. RV door opened into park street. Only thing working well was the cable TV- really good signal and stations. Park has weak Wi-Fi for $; Verizon air card worked fine. Some other sites are further back and in trees, probably extra charges. Large number of full-time residents too, in old trailers. Office staff couldn't handle full park business (due to big Rally). Not enough restrooms nor laundry. Would not return; this place is a joke.
Welcome stop between Bend and Boise, lots of large shade trees and grass but close to highway (quiet at night). pretty grounds, good sites, but bathrooms and laundry were pitiful. Rundown and old. Excellent cable tv , strong VZ aircard and cell signals. Use the RV car wash on south end of town to get the bugs off .
A basic, no frills place, like the brusque manager. Mostly long-termers staying here, but worth a short stay especially during the PA season ($13). Summertime has a SKP discount ($20). Co-ed, private bathrooms in the Laundry room get a lot of traffic, so weren't clean by afternoon. Cable tv reception wasn't very good, but VZ aircard was fine. A few spots with partial shade, be sure to ask ahead.
Favorite CG in this park. Wonderful staff, peaceful sites, very clean restrooms. Some flooding in some camping areas due to heavy winter snow and run-off. Moose often in loops, and many noisy teenage kiddie groups. Be sure to avoid them in the Group sites.
New owners fired key staff, disconnected cable TV, and will close in November for winter season. Park is still ok for short stays, and only choice for hookups in area. Sewer caps are out of the way, sites very narrow, and old guy moving hoses in morning will water your front door. Showers not cleaned for 2 days; no laundry room. But you'll be gone most of the day anyway, enjoying Sun Valley.
Another wide spot in the road, convenient PA overnight park in dusty NM. Host does have 5 basset hounds that may bark when you walk by, but are not roaming and were quiet at night (not sure what other reviewer's problem was). Bathroom was clean and little-used. Good stop near Albuquerque. TV reception and Verizon cell phone work okay.
Fine overnight stop- we stayed 2 when the usual Spring winds made it too dangerous to travel. Not much to see an do in dusty Deming. This SKP park always has clean bathrooms and comfy lounge. Base rate $12.50 plus E.
Still a bargain under PA (1/2 the $25 plus tax) and the easiest place to stay for trips over to the Naco dentist. Not thrilled with the separate bathroom and showers, small laundry, but cable TV and quiet setting is fine. Golfing RVers seemed happy here.
Have mixed feelings about this park. It has plenty of nice, though dated facilities and activities. The cable tV is ready to go and worth $15 extra (although the picture could have been better). The location is good for Apache Jct. Staff and security people were mostly friendly and helpful. It's just not worth the high rates: we paid $740 a month plus electricity. Rates get better for longer stays but if you don't use the pools, etc. then why stay here? Pools were usually full of old folks bobbing around. RV sites are mixed in with park models and along back walls. Be sure to look in advance since the sewer hookups are varied, and gravel is unlevel.
Not a true RV-friendly park. Just an average geezer trailer park in Apache Junction. RV sites are scattered around, and you must be very careful about your hookups, and proximity to US 60 in the back, or Southern in the front. Some of the sewer caps are sideways, water can be on the patio (wrong side), electric is way back. So take a good look. Wi-Fi only works in the clubhouse. Many facilities in need of repair. Pool and spa look nice, tho concrete is cracked up. Only one usable indoor shower, ones by pool are not hot. "Computer Room" was worthless as was the "Fitness Room" (old machines not plugged in) . Monthly rate $550 is much better deal than $35 daily; not sure how we lasted 30 days here. Won't be back.
Very ritzy park, seems strange to be in dusty Casa Grande, near I-10. As gorgeous as it is, the rates are crazy. They don't even post them online, you have to call. Each month is different; the high is Feb. @ $54/$325/ $960 for D/Wk/Mo. Three month deals work out better. Huge, spread out park, not enough shower facilities for the size. Very nice grassy dog parks, great pickle ball and tennis courts. Golf course seems popular too. Be sure to do the 2 for 1 deal found in the regular ads in RV Journal and see if this place is worth it to you. Casa Grande gets cold and windy in the inter, not to mention the dust and barnyard smell
Very basic, no-frills park with a fair price for Mesa. We paid $17.50 under Passport America; limit is 3 nights. Sites are thick gravel with a small pad, paved roads, no shade. Small laundry room and only one shower, 2 toilets per gender. Worked out fine in slow season, could be problem when park is full. New manager with family on site; kids are welcome so keep that in mind. VZ signal was strong, TV antenna was good too. Has some traffic noise.
This is a beautiful-looking park that would get a high score in it wasn't for the ridiculous charges and the inefficient front desk staff. Our PA book said the regular rate was $46 but the Park said $59, surprise! Then they add a $3 resort fee, taxes, WiFi, and other petty fees. Even with the 1/2 PA rate (only for off-season, 3 nights), and just the resort fee and tax, it was almost $38; not a great deal, especially for an unlevel site on a busy street, next to a park model with the AC running all day right next to your door. Hookups were so far back we couldn't use the sewer or water. Cable TV had many channels, though not a sharp picture. Nicest facilities are over in Northpoint, so you might want that side. Better yet, don't come at all, let the park model rich people have it.
Agree with everyone else, this is a great SKP park. Just wish there were more bathrooms, showers, dumpsters, and recycling bins spread around the spacious park. Really nice place to stay and relax, tho you need a car to get to town or anywhere. Gets pretty cold and windy in peak of winter. Friendly folks, mostly older seniors.
Clean, older park, fine for overnights or short stays. Can't see spending a whole RV winter in windy, cold central NM, but people do. Loved the cable TV here, owner is very helpful and friendly, and there was a nice fresh vegetable stand in the Alco parking lot downhill. We'll stop here whenever in the area.
Great location in town, easy to walk to stores, etc. and take bus to Plaza, but you'll get road noise too. Small, family-owned park, usually well-kept. Have stayed here about 5x but happiness can depend on your site and busy season. This time we got banished to a tight back-in, stupid neighbor parked his truck into our patio. But we'll be back next year anyway, hoping for a better site.
The previous reviews prepared us for the tight sites and the hassle to get in, since you have to call at 7am to get on the waiting list for that day. Didn't get a call back til 10am, that we were lucky. It's an interesting place. Loved the location next to Clear Creek, with all the tubers floating by, though there was a lot of foot traffic along the park. You can ride a bike from here, up the nearby mountain or east to Denver. Laundry room and showers were clean and efficient. Used VZ aircard and cell, TV antenna: all were strong. Biggest problem was the weak power, due to a heat wave and everyone using AC. Voltage was quite low. We paid $27.86 with our Good Sam discount for an electric only site. Good luck getting a FHU! Dump station is in the middle of the entrance/exit road.
Better USFS campground than Kelly Dahl up the road, and bonus of having cell reception. Hosts were busier than at KD, kept bathrooms very clean (there are even some new ones here). Variety of sites, many reserved for weekends. Pretty wildflowers, lots of space between most sites, and some are almost level.
Pretty good forest service cg, close to Nederland. But could not find a single level site, and as previously said, this place is best for tents and vans. No cell reception. Hosts never made contact with anyone and raced around in a truck.
Okay place, glad for PA rate: paid $15.56 for W&E site. Cable TV would not work due to earlier rainfall, they claimed. WiFi was useless til after 10pm; crowded park with a rally group. Grassy, wet site not level but quiet and shady in the back of this park. Place has potential, but needs improvement.
Thanks to the review on this great USFS cg, we decided to try it out and lucked into an E site for 2 nights. You really do need to make reservations if you want the few hookups. The regular rate for E sites is $23, dry camp $18. Wonderful place up the canyon, friendly hosts. Showers were quick 25c and hot. But cell, broadband and TV won't work. Worth it to be here.
We stayed here over a busy summer weekend since we couldn't get into RMNP, and the other places in town are too crowded & expensive. The rate for just W&E is $25, which seemed fair until they added the $7 entry fee for this county park, which is a daily fee, yikes. So $32 was too much, especially when our neighbors were excessively rowdy, a family with a tent trailer, 2 tents full of kids, 3 vehicles, and a 4 hour campfire, right under our window. The cable TV has been disconnected, there is no antenna reception, and Verizon cell is terrible. The park Wi-Fi was very weak. So many people used the showers and RR , they were never clean. Don't stay on a weekend !
A pretty place in the trees, nice for Gunnison but seemed expensive. Stayed one night for $34.72, no discounts. Clean restrooms, quiet area. Got parked in a tight site between cabins, not too thrilled.
Watch out! if you are here in the summer, be sure to have a voltage meter. Our power dropped to 106 volts when the microwave was on. We never did use the AC even tho it was 90 outside. Best reading was 115v at midnight- never saw 120. Previous reviews are correct, the place is all gravel and very tight. Location is helpful, close to Camping World and nice local park. Private bathrooms are good, laundry cheap but rundown. Consider this dump for overnight only.
Another mixed bag Western Horizon joint. The main clubhouse is nice but was taken over by families and rowdy kids in the pool and hot tub. Sites are ugly, back-in, with dirt & overgrown scrubs, and totally unlevel. Absolutely no Verizon cell nor Internet reception. "Cable TV" from park gets you 4 network channels. Supposedly free visit charges for electricity, cable, and if you want the unreliable Tengo Internet. Pretty setting by Blue Mesa reservoir but park has never met its potential. WH membership is a joke.
OK for overnight but a kind of rundown place. Check your site first. Ones in front are near the laundromat but limited shade. Many more sites and more trees in the back area. Our cable TV was awful, had to use box at next (empty) site, which was a bit better. Verizon cell and broadband OK. We really liked using the RV wash next to the park.
The only reason to stay here is if you are desperate for cable TV, since the other 2 parks don't have it. We really wanted to see the NBA finals, and a cable program, so we chose this place, but are sorry. The cable was very poor, few stations; had to hook up to a neighbor's ped for better quality. What really got us though, was the $5 ADDITIONAL charge for a shower. Those of us in small RVs or campers, with no showers or a small stall used as a closet, depend on park showers. This place charged us the same overnight rate as the big rigs, who got to park in the few pull-through sites (small rigs were banished to the back-ins along the noisy highway). The people in big rigs shower inside their homes, using park W&E (50amp?), yet the rest of us have to pay an extra $5 to carry our stuff to the showers, meanwhile using less W & E. Then the laundry room had ineffective machines, as previously noted. We also didn't know this park is outside of town, too far to walk to the few restaurants and shops. You will be much better off staying at Thousand Lakes, the nicest in town and almost the same price. Don't make our mistake. An additional irony is that they water the grass and trees here all day and night because it's "ditch water". I hope someone takes a free shower in it, outside.
This is the only park in town, or rather 6 miles from the historic part, but next to the outlets and other centers. We took the cheaper, lower class sites down the steep drop to the creek. It was quite pretty and scenic here, but the bath house is a dump, even though mostly clean. Nice facilities up the hill, with pool and spa, but tiny laundry room. We had great TV antenna reception, and Verizon cell and broadband were fine, so were W&E. Would return if needed to be here.
Previous reviewer is wrong- "all" sites are not level nor have a parking pad for toads- those are the deluxe or better sites. Standard is cheaper, not level (some jacked MHs had wheels in the air), and no parking pad. Some RVs were too long for the cheaper sites, so parked their cars & trucks in other sites. While the sites are a bit narrow, and the Interstate noise can be intense,this is still the best park in SLC. Gated entrance, very nice laundry and lounge. Large private bathrooms. Basic cable is clear; Verizon air card and cell are fine.
Seriously overpriced KOA - they all are, of course. We only came here because there's a free shuttle downtown to the Square, and we also wanted the extensive cable TV for one day (no other area park has that). Unappealing, unsecured outside area but park has nice grass and shade trees, though many paved sites are narrow and short. Sewer hookup was next to the cable box and unusable. Laundry room and showers cramped but clean. Residential area had cars zipping from there thru the park. If you must stay here more than a night, pray for a good, safe site.
Excellent stopover park and great value on PA ($16). Nice long, level pull through sites, lots of grass in between and huge trees. Pretty setting on the river, some interstate noise. Owner is very nice and accommodating. Wasn't thrilled that there was only the one little shower house in the middle of park. Other showers and restrooms plus laundry and pool were a good walk away at front office. Cable TV was good, plus Verizon cell and aircard worked fine; didn't need their WiFi.
It's great that this place supports PA and Escapees with affordable rates. We paid $20+ on the SKP discount for a few nights, mostly to catch up on laundry and have cable TV, which is extensive here. Owner very helpful, but there are only 12 sites for travelers. Residents don't always pick up dog waste, and there's too many noisy motorcycles and trucks during the day and early evening. Still worth a stop, for the location and rate.
An okay overnight stop at the PA rate of $15 (more for 50 amp). Very long, shaded pull thru sites on a slope. Quiet country area but some highway noise. Two private bathrooms, one W & D. Lots of grass, spacious. TV reception on antenna and Verizon air card and cell worked fine.
Nice little park that's not really a 7 rating -no extras except cable TV- but since it's inexpensive for the area, and was a good stop for several days, we're being generous. Manager was very nice and helpful. Paying for a shower is a hassle, the sewer hookup was way back, and the daytime traffic was loud, but we liked our level, grassy pull-through.
A decent overnight stop if you have some jacks or leveling boards. Really hate these nasty sloped sites; at least it's pull through. Residents live on the outside perimeter and let their dogs run loose. It rained so we weren't bothered by outside beer drinkers, as previously noted. Cable TV was great, and Verizon works. Wi-fi signal looks weak. Would rather boondock at the casino but needed hookups and laundry.
OK for the price. Would have been happier if the sun ever came out, but it is a pretty, quiet rural setting. We missed having internet and TV (you need satellite). Verizon cell signal was weak. Bathhouse was a cold concrete block, but plenty of hot water. Nice diversion from busy Hwy 101.
Had an unpleasant experience in Pleasant Valley. Was assigned an unlevel site further away from laundry/showers than wanted, then a 3 generation family with car and truck w/ travel trailer, about 6 bikes, 3 dogs, many kids, pulled in right next to us. Yes, the sites are quite close together and all on a slope, with the hookups in the middle, too far from our dump valves. Rain made the area a mess. Limited cable. Private bathrooms were nice ,but part of the laundry room, and they close it from 12-2, really stupid. We had planned to stay a few days but left after one. Won't stop here again.
Very basic, simple park along noisy 101 but very nice managers who take care of it. Rating it higher than deserves because they support the Escapees club and give a 15% discount, so price was $21 in off-season. Excellent cable TV line-up, VZ air card and cable were fine. Had a nice hot shower but only one, and 2 toilets per gender. Has a good little laundry room. Easy access to Old Town: walk or bike, if the weather is ok. Has long narrow sites, could be too close during summer season.
We're giving this park a "6" rating mostly because it's a good deal w/ PA ($14.50 cash), for this area, and it does have the basics. But the little laundry room has old, rusty machines, the bathrooms weren't cleaned during our 4 day stay, and the manager is never in the office. There are really just 5 sites available: the pull throughs in front. The back-ins are taken by seasonals and perms. It rained every day and turned the grassy sites into a swamp. They do have a library and 3 fitness machines, plus recycling. It's about 5 miles from town. Will return, mostly for the price and area.
Time to update the review on this park and warn RVers. Passport Am. rate of $14-15 would be too high for this dump. We coming in to find the mgr. "gone fishing'" and unleashed, scary dogs walking around. The lone shower/toilet was in bad shape. Run-down, junky trailers around perimeter and 2 very nice rigs sitting in the 2 pull-thru sites (why?). There are much nicer, still affordable places in town.
Oregon state parks are the best. This was like camping in the old days but with W & E, hot showers. They also have recycling bins. Verizon cell phone worked but air card would not. Worth it to be out here. Be sure to visit the the lighthouse.
Nice park convenient to Medford. Not as close to I-5 as other one in town, but there's road noise. Try to get a site by the stream. Bathrooms clean but have pay showers, even tho rate here seems high. Sewer hookup was so far back in the site, by the road, couldn't use it. Good cable TV. Verizon air card worked fine. Good overnight stop.
Very nice landscaping, well-kept place but right up against the interstate and next to motels. Freeway noise was bothersome, but liked the park for 2 nights. Good $$ rate w/ Good Sam and other discounts; rates vary by rig & site size. No place handy to walk dog in our area. Very clean bathroom and laundry, little fitness room. Verizon access fine.
A pleasant place to stay for the 3 night PA rate ($16 + tax). The sign at the front desk says regular rate is $28, and the PA book and website says it's $14. Irritating when they don't match up. Anyway, the cable TV is super, most sites are concrete and grass pull-throughs (sloped, not level). Shower/bathrooms are large but stuffy, heat was up too high. Fine stopover outside of Reno.
For Western Horizons, this must be one of their best parks, considering it's not run down and outdated. Beautiful view of mountains, nice little clubhouse and pool, which was closed, and the spa was broken. Laundry room is strangely tiny, showers are nice but not cleaned over the weekend. Nothing nearby except for the winery, need a car for town or anything else. Too much rock, no place to really walk dogs except on the streets. People were mostly friendly, quiet (an older set).
This is a favorite AZ park. Always happy to be here, just wish it was more affordable. See their webpage for range of prices for sites; some are really beautiful, possibly worth the cost. Blooming trees, flowers, grass, etc, is really nice, plus the great blue herons nesting in the trees. They've nicely remodeled the bathroom/shower house but there are still just 2 showers, 2 toilets per gender, and the showers are used all day long. Has a good recycling program, plus a dog run. The only park right in town, you pay for it. At least they take care of the park, and there's a friendly vibe.
Various rates available for different club affiliations. WH members sure don't get much for their $399 annual dues and the ridiculous $8500 joining fee now being quoted. (Heard stories about the infamous sales guy). This is a lovely, quiet setting but there's been no improvements in years. Pool is still not heated, not used although days were sunny and warm. At least the hot tub was okay, but the shower room by pool is gross. Some sites are shaded, long and wide. Others are short back-ins. Not all are FHU's, be sure what you are getting. Has dirt sites, which are not level. The family of 7 next to us was too much; we left early.
A small park along the main road into town, close to grocery store and PO. Came here for the convenient location and cable TV (many channels, but not sharp). Weekly price was good, $167 w/ cable but daily price is too high: $30 + $2 cable. Only 2 unisex bathrooms, large but not cleaned the past 4 days. Only has 2 washer/dryers. Entire surface of park is rock, which your dog will hate. At least half the place consists of residents; very few travelers came in. Much nicer parks available in the area.
Yes, it's a nice park but this low review is a warning for Passport America members. We called twice and could not get a site because the park only saves TEN of the 158 sites for PA, and there's a 3 night limit. The entire month of April was booked. Big Rip-off. Have been here before; it's not really worth the full daily rate which starts at $33 and goes up.
This wide spot in the road was sort of okay for the PA rate of $14.50. You don't want to pay full price. Only one unisex bathroom/shower for campers, really stupid. Sites are sloped, rocky, and short. Can't wait to leave.
A pretty setting, well-taken care of by hosts and campers. Hiking trails are right out of the campground. Water in the restroom was barely warm so didn't try the showers. No reservations so come up by mid-day. Dump station located by the entrance, 2 sections.
Hot water heater in shower room was fixed, so hot showers were welcome. Too bad the stalls get flooded: don't leave your belongings on the floor. Office says the place is booked solid in January and February due to the horse shows, etc. We found the cute Trailer Corral in Old Town Scottsdale, but it is a tiny place, hard to get in. Westworld is okay but wouldn't want to pay much more for a parking lot.
Previous review was wrong, this is a NOT a large park. Actually the smallest in Cal-Am. Only 300+ sites, not like the Mesa monsters with 1000+ . So facilities are smaller size, only 3 showers, etc., and all the park model people/ regulars have their cliques. Residents behind us walked right through our site, on the patio next to our rig, several times: til we came out and asked them not to. Best idea is to stay here on PA ($19.50 plus tax). It's in a quiet area, car needed to shop anywhere. Hookups at our site were on the wrong side. Water quality foul.
Can't remember the actual daily rate since we paid the PA 1/2 price deal plus excessive AZ tax = $156 for a week. Liked this place so much more than the 2 nearby Cal-Am parks. The park model residents on our street were very friendly, and people in general here were nice. The old folks were active, biking around, using the pools,etc. Huge older park, with RVs spread around. Great dog walk along the canal. A "green team" picks up recycling weekly. Only real negative was the considerable distance to the clubhouse/laundry/pools/showers/Office- all in one central area. Pet area was located in a far corner of the park.
The only thing going for this sand & gravel lot is the great location. No RV parks in town, the best places are the regional parks. It would get a higher rating if the open cinder block bathhouse had doors, heating and hot water. It was painful to go in there in Dec. when the overnight low was 38. Hookups okay, dump station down the road. Verizon air card, cell, TV good. Office staff very nice.
We were misled by the nice park website and comments here, because this drab old park was a disappointment. Came for the PA rate (about $16 w/ the fat AZ tourist tax)and to look around Apache Jct. Saw many small, older parks on the side roads, like this one. Mostly ancient trailers and park models, residents who keep to themselves. Tiny pool and spa was covered the whole week. Laundry room had excellent new HE machines, but you had to buy a $2 card. Wi-Fi available for charge; we used Verizon air card. Manager was somewhat gruff, but had helpful moments. Too bad he wouldn't do anything about the scummy restrooms. Sites were tight and ours had hookups on wrong side; water quality terrible. So go someplace else!
Agree with others, this is a great place, especially for the Phoenix area. So nice to be actually camping under the stars and clear skies. Yet the Verizon cell and air card worked fine, and there's TV reception on antenna. Would give this a perfect 10 rating except that the 2 sites we tried were not level, and the shower room was cold and water never got hot. Rates have just gone up to $25 as of 12/09 but worth it: especially in nice weather. Can get cold and windy up here in winter. Good hiking trails but need a car for exploring and supplies.
If you need to be in this NW area, the resort facilities here are very nice. But as mentioned by others, the overnight or one week only Passport America RVers are banished to a gravel back lot, a long way from the nice pools, showers, laundry,etc. For our 4 night stay, it was okay. Parking area not full and RVs were arranged in opposite directions so we weren't close. We loved the free cable TV, recycling bins, free car wash, nearby dog walk. Normal daily rate was $47, so paying half that on PA worked fine. I sure wouldn't pay their $700-800 monthly rate for a regular site amongst the park models. You also get to hear the AF jets screaming overhead and some nearby trains.
Most of the previous comments are accurate: very tight sites , oddly laid out (especially for a new park). Had to pull in, so was right behind one trailer and very close on driver side to another but had spacious motorhome door side. The downward and sideways slope bothered us the most. Looked like the whole middle section of park wasn't level. Had a very weak Verizon access signal, didn't use park's Wi-Fi ($2.50) since only stayed one night. Bathrooms nice & clean and there is a lake view at the end of the road. This place is fine for the overnight PA rate, $17 plus tax.
The park website looked nice and the rate w/cable TV was appealing so we came here and committed to a week ($125), which was a mistake. Pull through sites up front are really narrow and the residents kept driving through the empty sites next to us, unless they were taken by over-nighters, which meant no privacy. Lots of beat-up motorhomes and trailers here, many smokers (cig butts all over grounds), and dog doo not picked up. Didn't seem very safe. Also had trouble with very weak signal for Verizon air card, although cell was okay. Best surprise was the clean, spacious shower house. OK for couple days if you have a short enough rig. Otherwise, look for nicer parks.
Came here to visit with friends with WH membership, and we use our PA discount ($17.99 with tax) which was the only reason to stay here because it's sure not worth more. Terrible's Lakeside looks a lot better at the PA rate, at least they have grass and paved roads. The gravel and dust here is awful, and no sites are level. The members got the wide lower sites, PA visitors were given the narrow but long ones in the upper side. Bathrooms were very clean, and TV antenna worked somewhat- cable would be a real bonus. There is a small pool and spa, clubhouse with nice landscaping. Lots of old people and real grumps in the front gatehouse. Plenty of other places to stay in area, so look around.
We didn't mind the blacktop camping in November when the weather was pleasant: summer would be awful. The whole park is sloped and nothing is remotely level. We got stuck in a back-in site on the far perimeter, far away from the bathrooms and shower house, and next to the busy highway. Park was full every night so call ahead. Popular overnight stop with the cheapest rate in town for cable sites. But they did not honor the Escapees 15% discount even though they are listed in the Travel Guide. (This was reported to SKP office.) There are many other, better parks in town.
Okay for short stay; rate is affordable $19 plus tax (21.28). RV park here is much quieter than the Oasis since it's behind the hotel, but oddly has only half the # of cable TV stations. Hotel/casino/parks are owned by same company, but Oasis casino was shut down. Nicer grounds and facilities for hotel here, but only one washer & dryer in RV Laundry room, and 2 small showers, not clean. Security comes around; saw them at midnight. Back-in sites along wall are wide enough but watch out for pull-thrus, they are short and sloped.
This park is fine for overnight and would get a higher rating if they ever cleaned the bathroom. We hung around for the reasonable rate ($19 + tax),cable TV, laundry and because this seemed better than the other casino park. No mention of Wi-Fi, but Verizon air card and cell are strong. Big hassle to find a site, then go to the hotel (casino was closed, like a ghost town) to register. Told desk staff twice that bathroom wasn't cleaned for 2 days. On 3rd day, toilet paper was re-stocked and trash emptied, but toilets and showers NOT cleaned. Ants are on one toilet, other were backed up. Pretty gross. Better idea to stay for free across the street in large parking lot, or go to new WMSC.
Wonderful dry camping place...loved the red rocks and clear ,starry night. Hookups loop was full, but Arch Rock is very nice. Pit toilets were okay. Main reason this doesn't rate a 10 is no cell, no internet, nor antenna TV reception .If you need to make a call, do it at the east entrance station- and maybe the VC. And get to the park by mid-day for a site; no reservations.
The setting is beautiful here and we'd give it a higher rating but park isn't well-run. Bathrooms were not cleaned at all. Cable TV was weak. No Wi-Fi mentioned but Verizon air card usually okay. Sites not level, concrete pads broken up. Our electric hookup box was on the ground. Neighbors partying with cars in the street, bonfire, and noise.Great location and view but wasted . Sites cost $30-40. Better to stay at NPS campgrounds.
Unpleasant urban camping...fumes from busy highway nearby, traffic noise all day and night, including constant sirens. Sites further in back may be better . Our view was a concrete wall topped with barbed wire, and an apt. complex beyond that with residents on their balconies watching the RV park. Our site did not have a sewer hookup, and was seriously unlevel. Water quality was foul. Pool and dog run are nice. Would rather pay for a decent park than stay here "free".
Previous positive review misled us to stay here, much to our regret. Large woman manager with pierced tongue (not a winning combination) was not helpful, didn't bother to mention free Wi-Fi and how to access. (Note, it only works in the laundry room area.) Sewer hookup is atrocious: all the sewer caps in the pull through area, and all others that we could see, were in the very back of each long site and next to a tree. No way to use them without many feet of extra long sewer hose. Even the cap in the dump station was next to a pole. Cable TV had many stations but weak signal. Noisy side street but convenient location close to Smith's and Wal-Mart. We'll boon dock here next time.
We wish all PA parks were this nice, for $13. Private bathrooms are terrific. Gravel sites are fairly level, long and wide. FHUs are not available for PA rate, but are at full price, or you can use the dump station. Actually got 8 TV stations on antenna and Verizon air card worked okay. Great I-40 overnight stop.
Adequate overnight place, seems like a better place to stay than the parks in Vegas. Rate is fair ($27 with GS) for cable TV and level site, nice bathroom. Pay $2.50 key deposit; too bad the dog walk area is across the street, thru a low gate. Sewer hookups are a problem- caps are very high and we could not use them. Free Wi-Fi and Verizon air card was strong.
This is very convenient place to stay in Santa Fe, but the very urban nature also creates problems. If you get one of the nicer big rig sites on the far north side, you're in good shape. Other sites are along the Cerrillos wall with very LOUD traffic noise, or in the middle pull through area, which gets all the in and out park traffic, plus some wrong side hookups. E box was on the wrong (R) side; sewer was on the L but too far away to use. Water faucet was under a metal lid, with no room to connect a filter, just the hose. Cable TV worked fine, air card, cell and Wi-Fi strong. Bathroom in good condition but only 2 washer & dryers. Owners and work-campers do a good job, very helpful. Best place to stay in town tho pricey for what's here.
Convenient stop along I-25, though overpriced for this isolated area, if you don't use the pool, putt-putt course, hot tub,etc. Must be popular with families in the summer. Had a good pull through by the bathrooms but not level and voltage way too high. Owner was in office, very nice. Great cable TV , free Wi-Fi and VZ aircard is strong.
This 3-year-old park would normally get a higher rating just for its new building and nice, large restroom but the place was poorly planned and not worth an overnight. Thank goodness for the PA rate of $16 plus tax, only reason we stayed (and because the Pioneer park, closer to town, had no showers nor RR). Was given a site on the row right next to the very noisy highway, and the sewer connection in the grassy middle strip was too far away even for my long hose. The narrow pull-through site was not level. VZ aircard didn't work, had to go back to office and ask for password into Wi-Fi, which wasn't offered at check-in. Wi-Fi did not work til close to midnight due to others. Only one bathroom per gender, behind the office down a steep, dark hill. Owner (?) wasn't very friendly, wasn't even around the next day: office was closed. Strange place. Would try in town next time.
This run-down little park has added cable TV and Wi-Fi since the last review, which helps since there's not much else to recommend, other than the great view of the mountains. Actually, we used our VZ aircard; the Wi-Fi signal was weak. Park is next to I-90 and noisy, but very close to town and stores. There are 9 long pull-thru sites on a paved slope, with some shade. Some W&E sites on grass are $24. Mobile homes and old RVs of residents in Park, including the mgr.'s home -she's rarely in the office. Be sure to call ahead. Bathrooms are pretty sad, but plenty of hot water. Residents walk thru your sites and chain smoke all day. yep, this is cowboy country.
This was the only available campground for a same day reservation. YNP has been super busy this summer.Really liked the lake view and location near Fishing Bridge area, but was assigned G loop up on the hillside and nothing was remotely level. Had to ask the camp host for help, and luckily he provided 3 extra boards. Pull thru was short, and on the left so as you step out the door, you're in the road. By the way, it's at 7800' so be ready for cold nights. The lower level loops may be closer to level but had fewer trees. This is really more of a tenting area.
Crazy congestion at entrance in evening. Ten RVs lined up there and waiting on the highway until a workamper finally moved the rigs to the dump station area. Not enough staff and very slow checking-in. We were lucky and got a loop that had fairly level sites and not right on the road- with trees helping out. Pull thru sites supposed to be 30' and some back-ins are longer. Rate this year is $20.50, and park CG's are full every day. This one is okay, but not near a VC nor showers, but river is nice . Great recycling program.
Park sign on highway has $27.25 rate with discount (GS, AAA). A week is $180, a good deal for Cody and much less than Ponderosa. All pull-through sites were full nightly. Most of those are pretty short for the big rigs, and the back-in sites are short for Cs, but okay for vans and tent trailers. The interior roads are too narrow, and full of tow trucks and toad cars, a real hazard. It is a no-frills park, with a good laundry room but spartan bathhouse...concrete floor and just curtains for the showers and toilets-ugh. The sites along the highway get a lot of road noise and there is very little shade. The sewer pipe is not threaded and placed out of the way. The Tv antenna reception weak, wifi not working often but our Verizon aircard saved the day. The owner and workampers are nice and efficient. There is shopping nearby, and a shuttle bus to town and all the tourist attractions for just $2. There are mosquitoes and ants are around too, careful. If this place cost more, it would not be worth a stop. It is okay for overnight and short stays.
This is a very good National Park campground with some of the longest pull through sites ever seen...and in the trees! Be sure to get there mid-day and pick your site. The hosts are very helpful. I was surprised to get Verizon cell service here. Do the loop road; it is okay for motorhomes. Stay a few days or longer. It is quiet and peaceful.
Nothing special for your $30, considering the un-level dirt sites and overused, nasty co-ed showers. Place exists for the Medora Musical and nearby TR Park. They run a shuttle to the musical ($4) and nearby city swim pool is $3. This is really geared for families, with a playground and large tenting area. Too bad the sites are so close you have to breathe your neighbor's BBQ or wood smoke all night. Too many people sitting outside yakking over campfires til midnight. Don't know how much better the private cg, Red Trail, is but will take a look next time.
Super city campground. Wish there were more like this, with cable tv , bike path, etc. Convenient yet quiet location; we rode bikes to the library and downtown every day. Bathrooms were clean but showers very popular and needed to be cleaned more than once a day...actually, they need more shower stalls. Campground was full every day- summer reservations a must. Sites get a bit tight, but there's grass around them, and so much to do elsewhere. Hookups are in the back, tough to do sewer so go to the dump station. Many families, some rowdy kids not considerate of RVers. September is a better time to be here.
Oh what a dump! One of those PA parks in the country where you'd never stop except for the half price deal. And then it's barely worth that. We pd. $12 for a pull thru and the fun of using an outhouse for a bathroom. Shower room was filthy, told the owner and he did send someone to sort of clean it that day. No cell phone reception, no tv, no WiFi, but it is pretty remote. Bikers might like it on the way to Sturgis. We ain't coming back!
Pretty good govt. campground. Many trees, great view of DT. Watch out for family crowds, especially on weekends. Kids in the street, even saw a 10-12 yr. old driving the family SUV. Get in early and pick your site. Many are not level and too close to the street. But the ambiance is pretty cool.
We were here on the 3 night promotional deal too, and it rained hard each afternoon. Didn't get to use facilities very much, but this is a beautiful place. Worth coming to check it out, but still rather expensive to just join the ranch unless you can come often and get your money's worth. Watch out for the long-winded,self-absorbed sales guy. Also, be sure to check Gas Buddy for area prices. It was actually 15cents a gallon cheaper for gas in Rapid City, not at the park. The RV sites in our section were not level, but at least you have plenty of grass around you- and lots of screaming kids on the weekend. Private bathrooms are great; too bad they are closed 2 hours for cleaning. Very small laundry in each pod. Still, a super resort, the real deal.
Called ahead and chose this park over the other one in town only because it's cheaper and can get W&E site. It was OK for 2 nights, mostly because the cable TV was great, Verizon aircard and cell service also. Park needs a lot of improvement but considering this is Wall, SD and the season is short, and they'd still have the grumpy management (old men anyway, woman at desk is nicer). At check in, desk clerk did not mention Good Sam discount, there's no welcome/rules sheet nor list of TV stations, nor much else. Bathrooms have concrete floors, small stalls with cloth curtain "doors", and no soap at the sink. And they assign RVs next to each other instead of spreading them around. Try the other park in town first, if you really need to stay in Wall.
Full rate with tax is $32.40 for 30 amp FHU, but Passport America is half price, and a good deal. Big thing to do in Mitchell is see the Corn Palace, rah rah. This is a fairly good spot to rest up a couple days, do laundry, soak in the pool. Be sure to get a level, shady pull thru site if possible. Ours was none of the above and the rig was very hot sitting out in the 95 degree full sun. Staff was always friendly and helpful.
Super county park, one of the nicest ever seen. Big shade trees, good-sized sites, choice of FHU or E& W. Very quiet side area by river but just a pit toilet there. Larger front area has shower house and flush toilets but kids (?) had trashed it that evening. Local cop drove thru twice. Mostly families and older campers, not live-ins. Golf course in park too. Highly recommend this place! VZ cell and aircard ok but TV reception depends on site location.
Great value for Passport America ($14.45 with tax) and one of the few commercial RV parks around. Huge place, all grassy fields. Long,long, long walk to shower and laundry building, and no shade; few amenities, poor antenna TV reception. Otherwise, would rate higher. Hosts didn't offer much info . Discovered too late a great bike trail near park to town and lakes.
For a city park, this is a very nice campground at a good price. Even has a covered bridge in the park. Rock sites, good for the frequent rain, with lots of grass along side, but not level at all (and we tried 4). Camp hosts were hiding out, wouldn't come to door, and not enforcing rules. Kids trashed bathrooms, numerous cars parked on road for a party. A few tv stations on antenna, and VZ aircard worked. Park did not fill on a Sat. night but weekend reservations could be a good idea, if you really want to be in Winterset.
We just got a monthly electric bill for Sun Life, 3 months after leaving. They now charge $17 just in fees. Total Cal-Am ripoff. See another reviewers' comments about Mesa Regal. While this is a mostly nice park (except for the crusty manager), the add-on charges in addition to the constant rate increases have steered us away for the future.
Very popular, neat little old RV park with great location in town. Easy walk to movies, food, stores and right on the bus line to downtown and the Plaza. Nice shade trees that also leave lots of leaves and bird droppings on your roof. Workampers were very friendly and kept bathrooms clean. Too bad the laundry room only has 2 washers and dryers; a serious shortage. Good cable TV, well water, level sites on gravel. Back-ins cheaper; pull-through sites available. Try not to get parked on Cerillios Rd. side. Small "seasonal" swim pool was covered up. Why do parks charge the same when pool can't be used?! Free Wi-Fi but VZ aircard works fine. Good place to stop awhile though be sure to make reservations.
Was disappointed at first, but after a week, this place grows on you. It's small and mostly safe & quiet; there is also an overflow dry camp area ($14). Most campground sites are not level- many RVs using jacks and blocks. Shade trees and shelters at most sites, though still sunny, also rather dusty. Only one shower per gender,water is not hot, only runs for 20 seconds and then you have to push the button again. Pretty views of Mtns. and river from top sites, and lots of room to walk dogs. Close to town and I-25.Laundry down the street, casino next door. Call for reservations ($10). Too bad that a lot of the sites have "permanent" residents, so real campers can't get in. TV works fine on antenna, also VZ cell and aircard. Good deal overall.
This was a real treat after coming from the dusty,windy parks along I-10 in AZ and NM. Mostly grassy sites, very wide roads, pecan trees, a very pleasant place. Loved the private bathrooms and the extensive cable tv. Enough to do in Las Cruces area to hang around. Park takes GS, PA and Escapees discount at different times. Highly recommend.
This is a mobile home park for local residents or renters that has RV spaces. Main reason to stay here is convenient location to the city and Expo center, but the surrounding commercial area is rundown. Don't be surprised to hear sirens. Park interior has many nice shade trees and grass + gravel sites, but they are difficult to back into. Roads are narrow and have numerous parked cars in the way, but a very nice guy does an expert job of guiding. Watch out for the high speed bumps when walking around at night. There are NO bathrooms, NO showers, NO laundry so this place never deserves a high rating. It's not even a true RV park.
Lucked out on a site during a busy time- everyone going to The Rally in Albuquerque. Very good deal for $11 PA rate since there's nothing here and it's always windy. Gravel roads and sites, no shade. TV on antenna okay, also VZ aircard. Only one shower but large bathroom, also a TV room and library.
Warning, WH is now charging many extra fees, especially if this is not your "home" park. This parking lot place is okay for overnight, especially with the handy pull-through sites. Not a pleasant place to stay the maximum 2 weeks, not at $14 daily.
The laughable previous review calling this dump a 5 star resort and giving a 10 rating should be dismissed. May have been done by a WH workamper or friend. This is a dusty old place that hasn't been improved in too many years. Families are here over spring break, but in early April it was very quiet, and the whole hillside-top area and casitas were empty. WH sent a letter mentioning declining membership, which is no surprise given the condition of most of the parks and all the old people. They are now charging $5 for cable and electric here if your "home" park,$14 otherwise. Sites are all dirt and pebbles which you have to clean out of your coach every day; most are not level, hookups are inconvenient and next to your neighbor's door. Sites by the lake are wider but not FHU. Cable tv has okay variety of stations, but mediocre reception. Tengo wifi costs extra, of course; Verizon aircard and cell have erratic power. Small pool was covered most of the time due to high winds. Would never stay here if not for WH membership. Much nicer parks in Benson area , many with PA discount and better value.
Very good value for Tucson. Office staff nice but busy; location handy to Tucson. Be sure to see park website for driving directions due to I-10 construction. Gravel sites, fairly level, some long pull-throughs. Small pool and cramped laundry room. Park should do more recycling than cans, since Tucson offers full recycling. Nearby dusty construction project is done, and I-10 expected to be finished early 2010.
This is a good deal under Passport America ($17), too bad your stay can only be a week. Most of the RVs are in a designated area by Lindsey Rd., , and big rigs can be parked among the resident park models and mobile homes closer to Main st. There is only one shower and toilet per gender in the RV area, and a tiny laundry room. However, there is a nice pool, spa, shower, & fitness room not too far away. Suggested dog walk is outside the gate along Lindsey;short walk to the PO and Fry's. We have stayed here 3x, never had a level site, and all have been tight. Quite a few of the Rvers stay all season, with extra vehicles and stuff. Not the friendliest park populace but office staff very friendly, helpful.
Came here only because of Passport America: daily rate at 1/2 price is $22.40 with taxes, and because of the central location. Really is a huge, confusing park with many ancient travel trailers, mobile homes, and park models for elderly residents, but there are nice RV pull-throughs to meet your younger, fellow travelers. A good grass dog park is in the Fiesta section and a nice pool, but showers were in bad condition. Front desk staff is okay, volunteer rangers lead you to site. Lots of activities for long termers, could be a decent place to winter.
Came back to this place because of Passport America rate- hard to beat $77 a week. The catch to this park is that there are only 22 sites available for transient RVers, out of 525. This is a co-op park of lots owned by elderly Midwesterners and Canadians, staying in park models or RVs. Nice folks who retire soon after the 5pm dinner. Verizon aircard and cell still hard to use but free wifi in 2 buildings. Practically NO tv reception on antenna. Some cow odor from dairy down road. Still a nice little, boring place for a cheap visit.
It is still one of the better snowbird parks in Mesa, but they had some water maintenance problems this year, so the shower rooms off the pool had to be closed. Rates have gone up, now $42 daily, but Good Sam and Passport America rates are available. We stayed on a monthly rate which was about $20 night. There are lots of activities and good staff, though the Manger can be tough. People who live here seem to be pretty happy and active, often at age 70-85.
It's a snowbird park but still has many empty sites for RVs. Area in front has convenient pull-throughs for overnight or weekly. There is a nice pool and spa, small fitness room and other amenities. Our favorite things here were the cable TV with HBO, ESPN, etc., and the extensive dog walk along the canal. Too bad there wasn't a trash can nearby. The only dumpsters and recycling cans were on the far, far side. Be sure to get a site away from the streets and train tracks. But you can't avoid the smell of the local cattle, especially at night. Hosts and desk staff were all helpful, except for one woman, and the inept mail room staff. Manager was super nice. But park residents could care less about the "transient" RVers. Yet, this is a good place at a fair rate. Prices may go up in the busy season but still a good deal.
This WH park is only for the membership club people desperately trying to get some value for their overpriced fees & dues. Park is mostly old, worn and tired; residents are almost the same. Definitely for the geriatric "Dinner at 5:30pm" set. Old buzzard in site next to us backed his smelly diesel truck into his site, right next to our bedroom/living room and every day he'd drive off somewhere, filling our coach with fumes when our windows or vents were open. Asked him to please park his truck forward, like most people, but he refused. He also sat outside on his patio smoking most of the day and we got those fumes too. Some of the workampers take themselves too seriously: play police over silly stuff, yet there was dog excrement around the park. They should improve the hazardous Exercise Room, replace the ancient shower curtains in the bathrooms, spruce up all the meeting rooms. This place has barely changed the last decade. If you have to stay here, don't get stuck on the noisy side by Pinal. It was fairly quiet on the other east side.
While this is a nice park, it is nowhere close to being the best in Arizona, as a previous poster claimed. It's an older place, mostly park models, and with a geriatric population. At least there are more real RVs here than in some of the snowbird parks in Phoenix/Mesa, where it's 90% park models. The clubhouse,activity center, & pool are plain and functional. No fitness center, no cable tv. Wifi in the buildings only, VZ aircard has weak signal since park is in the boonies, no services nearby. Sites are gravel and a good size. Best features: quiet, clean, safe, and on Passport America for one week. Monthly rates are reasonable. Drawbacks: you must have a car to get anywhere, and the water is very hard and lacking in pressure. Water purity tester said 674, which is well over the EPA level of 500. Residents use filters and softeners, and drink the RO machine water. Several parks in town are better than this one, but get the feedlot smell. So it's all in the trade-offs.
Yes, the gravel sites really are huge, though a concrete pad would have been nice. No shade, so it can be hot out here, and it was windy every day which really stirred up the dust. But you get beautiful desert sunsets, & peace and quiet, unless you are parked near the highway. Very nice swimming pool and spa, laundry room, clubhouse, large shower rooms (but only 2). There are 266 sites, very spread out, long walk to the facilities. Only one set of dumpsters, no recycling; lots of residents were driving to anything within. Park is 5 miles from jct. to town, and 10mi.from a major grocery store. Seems an odd spot to be selling expensive lots, which were about 10%sold. Good deal now to stay 5 nights free and listen to low key sales pitch; see website. Definitely a nice place to visit and big rigs will love it. People were friendly.
The best of the 10 Escapee parks we've been to so far. Very nice facilities, layout and staff. Our huge site wasn't level and the sewer hookup was difficult (too high and out of the way), but we did have a fine view of the mountains. Daily rate with tax is $17+ Escapee, and there are good deals on longer stays. This place is a good reason to join Escapees.
Probably the nicest park in town, which isn't saying a whole lot, the others are mostly small parking lots. This one has 3 levels, though facilities are only on first one. Very convenient to town. Super nice, friendly owner. Discount rate is $29.95 daily but they have a good monthly rate and are popular with snowbirds. Long cable tv list. Just one toilet and 2 showers for whole park, but people seem to use their own rigs here.
Another over-priced KOA, but the only decent park in southern Colorado with cable tv. Not a bad place but isolated. Freeway noise wasn't bad, access is easy. Party going on, bathrooms not clean. Sites are close together, neighbor parked their vehicles in front and back of our RV- but left in the morning. Would never stay here except for needing location and tv & wifi access. Not worth the expense. Long pull-thru sites are over $40, and looked unlevel. Dirt sites with some grass and trees. Pool was closed but of course they still charge full price.
A nice experience outside of Santa Fe, price is fair for the area if you get a basic site. They have several choices so you can just do w & e back-in or the full FHU pull- thru. But you need a car to get into town. Park was quiet, sites wide enough and spaced, with forest setting. Cable tv is good, not at every site. Small swim pool in summer, plus movies. Very nice managers.
Very good cg for YNP- much smaller, quieter (if not next to the road) and more pleasant than the big zoo cgs. Sites are not very wide and are dirt, but there's usually a lot of choices and they rarely fill up . Helpful office staff knows which ones are more level or shaded, and lets you go try them out. Nice surprise to get Verizon cell service and aircard reception.
Pretty pitiful pull-thru..just a short ,curved, left side bend in the road, not level, and close enough to be aware of everyone else. But the location is super, near the river and at night the stars are beautiful. Lots of sites available when arriving at 11am weekday but brusque Xanterra staff won't let you choose a site. Good luck on getting a decent site and try to just enjoy the area.
As mentioned before, this is like being in the middle of I-25. There are relatively quieter sites in the back row, but those seem to be all long-term stay. In fact, much of the park seems to be residential. Only 4 sites were available for overnight on a weekday afternoon in late August. Sites are long and mostly narrow, with sewer cap in the back end and water way up front, making it a tough hookup and wasn't level either. They have free Wi-Fi, a pool and rec room, nice large dog run, but very small laundry and only one dumpster location for 225 sites. Office guy was so uncaring , he didn't bother offering a park map nor the bathroom key code til asked. If you really have to stay here for an overnight, be sure to go see the open sites first and also decide if you can stand the road noise.
With the Escapees discount, this was $29, a relatively good overnight rate for West Y but the park is pretty bare. Just a gravel corner, with rigs stashed in. Close to quiet end of town, with friendly hosts. Clean bathroom not much used. No laundry. Good cable TV and free Wi-Fi. Wish the sewer cap wasn't so high; made dumping tanks a gravity challenge.
Good overnight stop, fair rate on W &E $24, cable is $2 more. Then take Escapees discount 15%. Cell and aircard work, didn't use their free wifi nor pool. Level gravel sites, pull thru. Cable tv is super. Large but weedy dog park. Nice owners. Drawbacks were bright park lights and highway noise. And Rawlins.
Would have a higher rating here, since there are plenty of positives about the park, but for the price, it should be even better. It's West Yellowstone, not Aspen or Jackson Hole. Some back-ins are right on the street and over the sidewalk. Most sites are narrow but in the trees for welcome shade. Clean bathrooms & laundry room. Best of all is the great cable TV with HBO and Showtime. The owner is very nice and on the site.
Giving this park 7 stars only because the discount rates make it a fair value for the area, certainly better than West Yellowstone. Otherwise, it's not much more than a wide spot on the road, but the road happens to be next to Henry's Lake and on the way to YNP. Sign outside says $25 nightly. Their PA rate is $14.50 , with a 2 night max. Sites are gravel, mostly level, with grass and weeds . Couldn't hook up water filter due to concrete protector. TV antenna gets 2 fuzzy channels plus PBS. Absolutely no shade but it's usually not too hot here. Wi-Fi is another charge but Verizon aircard and cell work fine. Large,locked restrooms not used much. Huge laundromat. No dog run. Need a car to go anywhere. Popular with boats and ATVs.
Stopped here between Sandpoint, ID and Missoula, MT because it's a PA park for $11.50. Sometimes these kind of country places turn out to be pretty bad but this is a gem, considering there's not much else around. Well-taken care of by the owners, who live there, and a real value if you don't mind not having cell reception nor TV service (antenna was pretty fuzzy). But Wi-Fi worked well, pull-thru was grassy & spacious, tho not quite level. Two nice, private bathrooms available for whole park, but they weren't busy. Good place to get your mail sent to the PO across the street. Will return for sure, even though we don't fish.
Stopped here based on the review, and because Island Park was full. Big mistake. Photos on website very misleading. Dumpy, sideways "sites" arranged in a line mostly under shade trees, next to fields which yield a bumper crop of mosquitoes big enough to carry off your rig. Bathroom with shower was clean but only one for each gender. Owner never showed up and after struggling to level the coach with the bugs biting, we left. Never to return.
Good PA park ($14.50) for the Tetons, nice little town and close to Driggs, which has more services and entertainment. As mentioned, sites are gravel and share a hookup pad , so you may be pretty close to a neighbor on one side. No cable, poor antenna reception, but a tv in the "den" by the Laundry/ Bathhouse- which is very nice. New machines, but only one toilet and coin-operated showers- a major disappointment. Pull- thru sites not level and hookups are separated, with the sewer outlet very high. Motel guests walking thru our site to get to the laundry. Free wifi works fine. Enough good things about this place to recommend it, especially on the PA rate, which isn't always available- call ahead.
Came here because it's a PA park, and the one in Ennis was so awful. The reviews here told us what to expect, and the remote mountain setting really is gorgeous. Yes, you won't find shade for the warm days, it's cold at night and usually windy too. Nothing much to do but fish or enjoy the views and peacefulness. Would have liked watching dvds or using the game room but the office was closed at 6pm, even though we reserved. No one around, so paid in the morning. Bathrooms exceptionally nice. NO CELL PHONE nor TV reception, but wifi worked well. Long pull-thrus but on slope. An okay stop between Ennis and Island Park, especially with the discount. Park still for sale, restaurant not open mid-week.
The sometimes gushing reviews and the park website photos are a little misleading. We reserved a 30 amp,shady site and got a dirty, unlevel back-in without a blade of grass- BUT it was shady. The lush, grassy and long pull-thrus, which seem to be available only for big rigs (is their money worth more?), are not always in the shade. So on a hot summer day, ask for the trees and a pull-thru if you can get it. The voltage and cable tv had problems, and wifi signal was weak, for whatever reasons. The landscaping is really nice. Without having seen the other parks in town, this is still a good choice as long as you get in early and make sure the site is okay.
Another bad Sandpoint joke. Looks like the RV repair place next door had this big gravel lot and made it into a RV park. Tight sites, tiny patches of grass, little trees, no shade, indifferent staff. At least the laundry room and showers were nice, but washers were $2.00. Better off dry camping at WalMart or go to the COE or NF parks in area.
What a joke...$45 to park right next to the train tracks, with 40 trains a day going thru. Just a dusty parking lot, sites close together. No restrooms, must get key to hotel showers and pool. Great location by the City beach and town, but this place and the price is not worth it.
We liked this park and the area so much, stayed longer than expected. Not a fancy park but seemed to be the best one in the vicinity. Long gravel sites, grass and trees give some shade. Good cable tv , didn't use wifi, VZ aircard and cell worked fine. Great location by the CdA bike trail and the Hiawatha is nearby. Owner is nice & accommodating. Small, airless shower rooms and separate toilets are not our favorite arrangement, but okay for a few days. Good value at $22.50 Good Sam rate.
Have to agree, this is a great place for camping. Nice to have clear, dark skies above instead of streetlights, and to be surrounded by pine trees instead of big RVs on either side. It's important to note there are different RV-friendly campgrounds within the park. We stayed in the new addition, at the entrance and closer to town: Lakeview Village. These are FHU sites, with many pull-thrus, and one central bathhouse. Close by is the older cg, with W&E sites, or just E. Those seem to have more shade, but more tents and campfires. In any case, the Village (sign says Group RV) has strong 50 amp, and my VZ aircard and cell worked from here. Fun bike ride into town, Park has activities too. Too bad reservations are $10, but we were able to choose a nice site on a weekday, just showing up, and stayed 3 days. Wish it could have been more.
The previous review of 6/07 refers to a nearby state park, not this private park, located on a river arm of Cascade Lake. It's a pretty site but overrun by noisy families and groups on weekends and holidays. As mentioned in the older posts, there are problems with people riding ATVs and various motorized toys thru the park and stirring up dust, plus the voltage does drop to 110 or worse. It can get very hot here- there are trees but not much shade. They have free canoes and kayaks for river fun, sand volleyball, and more. Work campers are very nice, but must be understaffed, the way the trash piled up and the bathrooms were quickly dirty. No one even cleaned them on Sunday. The sites are dirt, some not level at all. Hookups okay and cable TV good, but wifi too weak. They do an all-you-can-eat breakfast on Sundays for $7 (6 in advance); food is bland but plentiful. There are discounts that make this a worthy stop if it's not steaming hot and full of crazy kids.
This is quite a fancy place but as the previous campers said, way overpriced. McCall is a neat town with a beautiful setting, worth touring. Best to try the state park first. This $$$ park has a very nice lodge with a swimming pool they claim is heated, but is not. The spa was quite hot though. The RV sites are quite a mixture- some are too close together and very short. Others on the perimeter are nice long pull thrus. But the sewer placement was so distant, we couldn't use it. They also claim free wifi- ha! Only works by or in the lodge; the VZ cell phone and aircard reception was weak but functioning. Cable tv was average and not very extensive. Shower rooms were gorgeous but floors were very wet . While the park has a lovely setting among the pine trees, with the river running nearby, it's still not worth the minimum $50 you pay. Premium sites cost even more. No wonder there were so many expensive big rigs there- guess they can afford to stay more than a night.
Wouldn't expect to give a little country park such a high rating, but this place is an exceptional value, spacious and well-kept. Rate is $20 for GS, with tax it's $21.60. Wifi is working well, very long pull thru sites are level. No shade, but grass is along sites, and a huge lawn for tenters, with shade trees there. The famous veggie garden is producing, and the office fellow was very nice. No TV cable company in area anymore but antenna worked. Wasn't thrilled with small shower rooms, separate from the toilets, but it's all clean, as is the Laundry. Much more appealing than any RV park in the Boise area.
Probably the nicest Passport America park in the desert West- too bad it's Fernley,NV. But it is quiet here, and the $14 daily deal for 3 nights is wonderful. Nice concrete sites with grass patches and small shade trees between, great cable TV, free Wi-Fi although we used aircard. The private bathrooms are bigger than some motels and kept clean. Hosts here are friendly and care about guests. This is worth going out of the way or stopping awhile , or as a cheaper,quieter base for Reno. Would be nice to have a pool or fitness room or picnic tables, but we appreciated having a simple, clean and quiet place instead.
TOTAL RIP-OFF, even for Tahoe. Will never waste money here again. Perhaps the high rates at this "Encore" facility are because TT and C2C members get an affiliated deal, so the park jacks up the rate for the rest of us. They had the nerve to charge their standard "resort fee" of $3 even though the pool was closed for repairs, there's no exercise room, and the courts are run down. Very narrow roads, all sites are dirt and many are short & unlevel. Electric pedestal was rusty &and unsafe-looking,sewer was out of the way. Dump station was good though. Premium sites in back area might be better but are $50+. Old, tacky bathrooms are cleaned once daily, and quickly dirtied by kids. Cable tv is a joke, just a dozen stations. Wifi is Tengo, costs extra, of course. Dryer in laundry room burned some of our clothes. In short, there is no good reason to stay here unless you have money to burn and are gone all day.
This campground would get a higher rating if the bathrooms were ever clean and had a soap dispenser. Also no sewer hookups- this is an older campground that looks like it might have been an old Forest Service campground, with a fire tower, so facilities are dated.Very popular with families in the summer; they were playing ball in the streets but quiet at night. Lake is across busy street and you'll hear the traffic if you're stuck in a site right there. Otherwise, location is great. Free WiFi (didn't use) and some stations on tv antenna; Verizon aircard worked okay. Too bad they charge $31- it's not worth that except that it's Tahoe and there are private RV "resorts" nearby that cost $45-55 and are a really bad value. If you can get a quiet site, this is a good place.
Surprise- this is the same Mountain View RV Park with the negative reviews. Don't know about new owners but the woman in the ofc. was not helpful nor friendly, & was yelling at her dog and kids. It's an over-priced parking lot, even with the GS discount to $33.50. Sewer outlet sits on raised concrete pad with power pedestal, sometimes behind it. Worse, it's very high, so if your dump valve is low, you have a serious gravity problem. Only 2 shower rooms, both dirty. Good cable tv and close to stores, yet fairly quiet. Hope we never have to come back though.
Wow- little Sutherlin is lucky to have three great parks. Was going to stop at Hiway Haven but they do not honor Passport America on weekends. The SKP (Escapee) park doesn't have showers nor laundry. This place, now called Umpqua Golf and RV resort was wonderful. Nicest manager I've ever met, who made a point to check on us and see if we needed anything, was ok to wash the rig, & leave late. Spotless bathrooms and laundry. Tremendous cable tv selection; didn't need Wi-Fi but it's secure. Best of all, they give a Passport America rate at $15 nightly even though they are no longer affiliated with them. Or can get Good Sam rate of $22.50. Will be back for sure!
Pretty setting on river, and would like to give a higher rating but the bathroom was too cold & spartan, trash overflowing and showers dirty. Cable tv okay, didn't use wifi. Owner nice but didn't inform of cheaper interior sites and then he closed the office for a day which meant no laundry access. Not worth full price but PA rate for overnight is alright. Looks good for family in the summer.
Nice little country park although much of it seems to be permanent residents in older trailers and some park models. Still,it's a good overnight or short term stop for Rvers. GS or AAA discount made it $23.40. Great cable TV , but no mention of Wi-Fi and we're using aircard, so haven't checked. Nice pull thru sites available but 2 big problems: none are level; in fact, most of the park looks to be on a slope. And the hookups are in the middle so you might need long hoses. Clean restrooms and laundry with security combo. Nearby casino runs a free shuttle and you can park there overnight if you don't need hookups, which we did.
Quite a place for the Forest Service. Too bad the rates have gone up to $25 for W&E; $20 for dry camps sites. The nearby state park may be a better deal since they have showers but this is a wonderful USFS campground, right on the ocean, with trees to hide in at many of the sites. The parallel parking sites are right on the bluff overlooking the ocean, but if you need slides, that's probably not going to work. There are a couple of fairly large rigs tucked away here but as the previous comments said, this is more of a small rig/ camper/ tenting campground. Access to beach is very close and easy so this must be a popular spot in the summer. Worth stopping if you can fit in. Non- summer is a good time too.
Really just a parking lot RV park. Almost like being in Arizona, except for the trees around the back fence. Sites are very narrow but long. Pull-thrus in the front area, but next to the highway, though night noise seemed okay. Best thing about this place is the closeness to Old Town and the harbor, a few blocks away, so you don't have to drive. And a great little natural foods place is next door, plus the local shopping center and grocery store. Park managers are very nice, cable tv is excellent. Didn't get a strong wifi signal so used my aircard. Only one shower per gender, with 2 toilets but they weren't used much and were kept very clean. Escapees discount of 25% during off-season makes this a good deal overall if you don't mind your neighbor being inches away; $26 is regular rate . Best to call ahead and reserve in the summer.
Nice little park with super friendly, helpful, youngish owners who live and work onsite. Quite a few rigs are here for 3-6 months, rain and all. They seem to know each other well and really care about the park. Not much here though; need to drive to the beach or town, such as it is. Cable TV was excellent; no wifi but VZ aircard works. Dial-up computer available in Library. Sewer hookups are on concrete slabs above ground and towards the back, so bring a long hose and holders. GS and Escapee discounts offered. Seems like spending a whole season here would be boring and way too rainy but that fits some folks, and you could do a lot worse for a park. Probably the best stop in Port Orford.
This is basically a simple parking lot by the beach. If it wasn't for the great location , it would barely get a 5 rating. There's a private path to the beach, a faux lighthouse for a view, and it's in town by stores and food. The bathroom and laundry were in an old concrete block building, and not cleaned that day. Couple of beat-up trailers seemed to be permanent. Check-in is down the street, they don't tell you the cable stations or if there's wifi or rules, anything. Then when you hook up, you discover the cable is worthless on half the stations. Strange little place but worth a stop if you want the beach on a nice day. You also get to pick your spot, then go register so the pull-thrus are up for grabs.
Glad I didn't see this before it was "improved". Still somewhat run-down, with rusty doors and mold in the spartan bathroom, which wasn't clean. Sewer outlet sits on a concrete base above ground = strange gravity. Sites are on gravel with no shade during an unusual heat wave, but there is a grass island. This was a good stop under Passport America for $13 but is not valid during the summer, which starts early in May. Nice kid mgr.in the office ,though more interested in his games than park problems.There are nicer places to stay but this is convenient to town and okay with a discount.
Way overpriced at $35, which inc. tax and a GS discount, supposedly. No "resort" to this at all, just a wide spot in the road. But it is a treat to see grass next to your site and to have LEVEL concrete pads. Wonderful cable tv access and free wifi although we did not use it. Good Verizon aircard and cell reception. Only one toilet per gender plus 4 unisex shower rooms with no ventilation nor electric outlets. Ok for a quick stop but nothing to do here and too expensive.
Was concerned about the negative reviews but the weather was too bad to go past Carson City. This park offers an Escapees price of $26.50 plus tax,which seemed okay for free Wi-Fi (didn't use it; Verizon aircard working well), and cable TV with free HBO. And there's a Costco next door, plus a Trader Joe's in the next shopping center, yay! The swimming pool and spa were empty but it was too cold anyway. Restrooms need a key, were very clean. Some sites are way too close but at least there are shade trees here. Worse problem is trying to level your rig on the roads that slope downward. Sign says that monthly rate is $295 which sounds good but I sure wouldn't want to stay here that long,even with HBO.
This really should be rated a "10" park but too many things went wrong during our one night. We called ahead and asked about tv reception and were told they had "local" stations. This website also showed cable tv, but that's in error. It happened to be a night when we really wanted to see some particular shows, but didn't realize til we got hooked up that there was no cable and the local stations were just that, from puny Pahrump and no nat'l networks. We also asked for a site near the showers and laundry; no such luck. By then the office had closed. The front desk people were somewhat inept and disinterested, but the other staff were very friendly. The sites are short for big rigs, and the sewer dump was too low in the ground. But in the main building, you find a wonderful fitness room and spa, bowling lanes and food, perfect showers, plus stunning outdoor pools and a jacuzzi, with RO water. landscaping is gorgeous but the sites are totally paved which gets pretty hot. The Passport America deal is great at $14 for the summer rate; some sites are $50 before discount. Too bad KOA bought this park; they will ruin it for sure.
Would not stay here if didn't have deal from TT. Sites very close together, not level, park is dusty, constant smell of gasoline plus noise from the nearby busy roads, electric pedestal falling down, water quality terrible. Small laundry/shower room was clean but pool and spa were not. Gets very hot during the day if you are in one of the many sites without shade. Won't come back, don't care that much for Vegas . There are better places to be in Nevada.
This park barely deserves a 7 rating, and that's mostly because the folks are nice, bathrooms clean,price is fair ($23 GS) and there's no place else to go in town. They haven't improved anything in years, not even putting soap dispensers in the bathroom. Still many permanent or seasonal residents; some rundown sites. Needs lots of gravel- the road dust is everywhere. Not great tv antenna reception, but Verizon cell & aircard are strong. Scenic rocks nearby, and Watson Lake.
Based on the quiet location, the price and the reviews of this park, we stayed here 4 nights and would recommend it to anyone. The lower level, with a few W&E sites ($23) along the ditch, is very nice and provides shade. The bathrooms were always clean, and the park is well-taken care of, and the owners are super nice. Didn't use the Wi-Fi, and cable TV would have been nice, but there's okay TV reception on antenna, and the Verizon aircard and phone were fine. Small grassy area for dogs too. Nice base camp for this area.
Sedona is an expensive town as is this park, but this is the only one in town, and it's quite nice. Loved having big shade trees, flowers and grass, even a fenced grassy dog run, plus views of the red rocks. Cheaper sites are smaller, close together but okay. See their website for the various rate levels, and make a reservation during the busy season. Was disappointed in the small bathhouse, just 2 showers and toilets per gender. Too much traffic, so the showers were not clean after late morning. Staff seemed nice though busy. Easy walk to the free town shuttle down the road. We rented a car for 3 days to explore Jerome,etc. Lots of jeep tours available for the back country. This is a great area.
Have to feel sorry for any WH members who paid big bucks for a membership (crazy sales people will quote you from $7 to 12,000). This is a quiet, somewhat peaceful (when the kids aren't running around) country park but quite dated and a bit rundown. The bathroom was always dirty from the families on spring break; staff cleans early am and never comes back. So the 2 showers were nasty, water pooled on floor, the 2 toilets were backed up. Pool was not very clean but spartan clubhouse was okay. We got tired of the filthy bathhouse, hot unlevel site, constant sand in the coach (how about some gravel, WH?), and poor cell and aircard reception, so left early. Did enjoy the cable TV and dark skies at night.
This is a nice park whose main drawback is its isolation at the south end of Tucson. However, there's no fat taxes to pay, and the $28 Good Sam daily rate is reasonable. It would be quiet down here except for the planes flying over from the AF base and city airport. Pretty indoor pool and spa, various classes. Efficient front office staff and parking crew to escort you to a back-in site on gravel. Dog walk area in dry wash, good laundry facilities. No cable tv but antenna works fine. Tengo wifi extra, of course. A decent place to stay and a better value than some other RV parks in area. Also good to see the RVs together, away from the mobile homes.
This park has the snowbird facilities: pool, crafts, library,etc. but all dated, for a nice enough visit, plus a great location on the east side of Tucson. However, it's way overpriced, especially for an older park. And of course, 90% is park models and trailers. At least most of the RVs are grouped together, though a long walk from the clubhouse and all the good stuff. Prices run from $35-41 daily and $205-245 weekly, then they sock on a 12% tax plus a $1.50 a day charge that was never explained. They give you a big booklet about the park and Tucson, don't tell you much in advance (like how to use the locked pedestrian gate at night), and send you away. Ask for an escort if you want help backing up; streets are narrow for big rigs. W & E hookups are on wrong side of standard sites. Power is weak: my 30 amp was woeful, so used adapter for 50amp, which still spiked often and got barely 110v on hot days. Shower room was okay except the showerhead is very low; you have to stoop down a foot to get your hair wet. Large, busy laundry room. Residents seemed quite elderly and not particularly friendly. Office staff somewhat brusque; they don't really care about RVers. There are better, cheaper places to stay unless you need to be on the east side.
Wonderful little state park. Wildflowers blooming in early March and weather perfect. Dark, starry skies. This is better than being in Phoenix or Tucson. Verizon cell phone and EVDO plus TV reception was surprisingly clear and strong. Make time to linger and hike the trails. Dump station and water available.
Not nearly as nice as most of the snowbird parks over in Mesa, and the residents here seem very old and inactive. At least there's an RV area in the front so you can meet other travelers, but they are packed in fairly close. Pull- through sites are $34 (plus 12% AZ tax!) and on thick gravel. Back-ins for $30 are nearby and also dispersed around the park, are tight & not level. Costco is behind the park, and I-17 nearby but noise wasn't bad. Security is worrisome though, since there are numerous signs about vandalism. Indoor pool and spa looked inviting. Laundry room is large but dryers are old. Only 3 small showers in dirty, cramped room by pool. Nice little library with one computer. Staff was friendly. If you really have to be in Phoenix, this is an okay place, but don't stay too long.
This could be a "10" park if they kept it up better. Shower room was not cleaned over the weekend, and not very well during the week either. Most of the facilities are fairly nice, with lots of variety (nice library, tennis, pool and spa, silver smithing, carpentry, billiards, etc) but aging: much like the population here. Residents seem mostly in the 70s, long-timers from the Midwest. RVs are spread around the perimeter and ignored. Front desk staff didn't bother to tell us about free Wi-Fi from sites nor small grassy area for dogs: just to go to the back gate and use the gravel walk out there. Forgot to give us the combo info too, til asked about a key. Went to a football party but residents kept to themselves, not friendly to outsiders. Fairly quiet park, no road noise even though you can see the freeway in the back. OK place, but not worth $40.
While this park has an incredible number of activities and amenities, it gets a reluctant 8 rating from us. It's too big (over 2000 sites) and jammed full with park models and trailers to rate higher. RVs seem like an afterthought. Snowbirds here have the usual cliques and don't care about newcomers or visitors, although the dog owners are friendly as they gather in the little community dog park that stinks. Big warning: the water quality is atrocious, over the EPA level in contaminants. There is a RO machine for drinking water jug refills. Rates are high here, supporting the nice computer lab, billiards, crafts, library,pools and spa,post office, theaters, etc. It's like a self-contained city! PA half-price rate is available for one week ($22.50 daily plus fat AZ tax) but staff can only lead you to a site, not help back-in. Sites aren't very deep but seem wide enough, with a concrete patio. Ask to be near the buildings that you want, since the amenities are split into 2 different areas. Location is convenient since there's a path to Fry's and shopping centers. Area was usually quiet inside the walls, though private planes fly over daytime.
This is yet another Mesa snowbird park, at least 90% park models and trailer homes, so I wish they wouldn't call themselves RV resorts. But it really is a nice place, with excellent facilities. The main building looks new, and has a good little library,cafe,card room, billiards,mailroom, ballroom , a great fitness room, plus an excellent computer room with a wifi hotspot. Front office was very nice, and the guy who parked us was wonderful. Sites are all back-ins but have a very wide patio space. The dog loved her daily walks in the canal(dry)and meeting many other dogs. Only negatives:road noise along back wall area, cable hookups only for long-term stays, very long walk to showers and laundry, and most of the residents are elderly. But still a decent number of active types in the 60+ age bracket. We used our PA for a week, so daily rate was $19 with a big state tax added. Arizona gets you with their taxes.
Liked this place more than expected to, given that it's not really a RV park, but a big snowbird home full of park models and winter residents, and not that many RV sites. But the folks are nice and there are a lot of activities going on, plus the facilities are pretty good. Nice fenced-in dog run. Easy walk to stores and restaurants. Long pull-through sites for short-term guests. Two heated pools; big shower room but a good walk from RV sites. Basic cable, Wi-Fi in clubhouse, Verizon air card and cell work fine. Passport America rate of 25% off in winter, 50% in off-season, but only for 6 nights and this is an Encore park with the stupid $3 daily resort fee. Too bad the feedlot smell is pretty strong at night but this is still a nice, convenient park.
We have a free gift visit for 5 nights so don't know what the rate would be, but this is a WH membership park anyway. (Some reviews for this place are on "Casa Grande RV Resort"). Would not want to pay much, it's a bit rundown and outdated. Registration clerks were quite rude and unhelpful, but some other workampers were nicer. The bathrooms were large and clean, and the pool was okay tho in need of paint- and warmer weather; only saw one person in it. Fitness room is a disgrace, but library and laundry room are good. Our gravel site was wide & level,with a concrete pad, no table. Some sites were not as wide or quiet. TV reception was poor, only one good station. Park is too cheap for cable or for upgrading the facilities, which is too bad since this may be the only true RV park in town. The others are mostly park models/mobile homes, and the fancy Palm Creek Resort is too $$$.
This place probably hasn't changed in decades. Typical Deming, gravel parking lot, but much more spacious than others. Too bad there's no cable nor wifi. Very basic Escapees park, but older crowd. Rate is $12 + electric; pay when you leave. Nice enough current hosts but not SKP warm.
For an urban park, maybe this place is okay, but the dirt and gravel sites are pretty close, and there are a lot of people packed in. The interstate is very close and loud. Was surprised to see there was no electrical outlet in the bathroom (for a hairdryer);very unusual. Pool was closed that day . Tennis and basketball courts in disrepair. But the wifi and cable tv worked great. Sandy, fenced, dog pen is helpful since you are not allowed to walk dogs around the premises. They do have GS and Escapee discounts, and PA in the summer.
The stoic manager and some of the NASCAR racing type residents are a little scary ( zooming trucks through the entrance road to the mobile homes and trailers in the back), but for ONE night at the PA rate of $9, you'll probably be okay. Another $2 for cable, which is very good, and free WiFi was fine. Spartan bathroom better than outside appearance. Long, wide dirt sites not quite level. Sewer is a hole in the ground with a bottle cover. Road noise all night; try to park away from highway. Good luck.
Stumbled on this place in the Hill Country. Happy to get a level pull thru, FHU w/cable (and HBO!) for $25 (23 for GS). Large oak trees and ambiance here; lots of regulars. very nice managers. Sites are a bit close, but it's quiet. Only real negative is the bathhouse with its 2 not user-friendly showers. More of a "7" park but an 8 for the great cable and value.
Fairly nice little country place, easy access to I-10 but not noisy. Not much going on right here, but Austin and San Antonio are a short drive. Grass and dirt sites, a bit close but seem level. A small pool is here (too cold now) , and free WiFi that the mgr. said isn't working well but will be improved. Just 2 shower/bathrooms but private and clean. Great stopover for Passport America at $12.50 and monthly rate of $250 is a deal if you have a vehicle to get you out to somewhere more exciting.
This park restores my faith in Passport America after staying in some of the countryside dumps affiliated with the organization. This was a really nice place to stay for $17.50 PA, with paved,level sites, plus grass and tables. Swimming pool, dog walk, rec room, laundry,free breakfast. Didn't use the wifi (have aircard) and the satellite cable was worthless,supposedly due to rain. Private bathrooms were exceptional. Manager was very nice and helpful, and the park put on a Christmas party and supplied all the food, which was pretty good!
Pretty country setting, yet a short drive from Foley and Gulf Shores. Really huge sites, but all back-ins. Also many houses in the park owned by Escapees members. Nice big clubhouse, library, pool, laundry, tho a long walk from the camping area. Not enough showers for campers. Tengo internet available, no cable but antenna gets networks. At bargain rate, a nice stop for Escapees.
What a great little place. Back end of park is along a river, with a boat dock and picnic area. Front faces Gulf, across a 2 lane road. This time of year is slow off-season and we were able to get the lowest rate, but this place can be $72 other times- a beach front evil. Bathroom is small with one large shower, but super clean. "Free" wifi and cable are excellent. Managers are wonderfully nice . Only problem was the back-in ,angled & narrow sites. Still, everyone is happy here.
Very nice place along Santa Rosa Sound, and a short drive to the Gulf at Navarre Beach. Quieter and cheaper waterfront park than Destin, but still expensive and busy in the prime seasons. Very nice hosts, super clean bathrooms barely used, cold but pretty little swimming pool, and a small private beach with sunset views. Not much grass to walk a dog, and sites are somewhat close but at least they are concrete pads with tables. Wifi is extra thru Tengo; cable tv is good. Bonus:you can wash your rig here with well water.
Wow- many thanks to the folks on this website who wrote us about this place. What a hidden gem on the Fla. coast. Spacious, private sites- many pull thrus- with gravel so you're not tracking in sand or mud. W & E, no sewer exc. dump station. Wonderful bathhouse. Bike riding, beautiful beach sunsets, peaceful area yet right in Destin. Only negatives are lack of good tv antenna reception and no sewer hookup. But you can't beat the price nor location. Probably need reservations on weekends or warm weather months.
Way overpriced, but it's Passport America so most of us are probably here for half-price. Place probably hasn't changed much in 20 years. Lots of huge, funny old Xmas decorations now give it a country charm, just right for the rustic setting in the woods, a mile from the coast. Small bathrooms, warped front door doesn't close. Large Rec hall, small pool and laundry room, terrible little "fitness" room, no WiFi but TV cable is very good. This place isn't much to talk about, but certainly worth $17.
Just a wide spot on the road but it's got a really nice, peaceful Gulf view and a fishing pier. Could be a good base camp for the area since it's quieter and cheaper than the parks on the west coast. Rate was $26 for cheapest site, before club discounts. Waterfront sites $3 more. Some sites very close together. Only one shower, 2 toilets. Wifi works well, great TV cable selection.
Hard to believe a park this big only has one bathroom, with the shower and toilet combined...but I was lucky during my brief visit and didn't have to wait. Most of the RVers here have big rigs and use their own showers, not me, and the many residents crammed in the back area are self-contained. Very nice setting with huge live oaks, spacious sites for travelers, good cable tv. Wifi wasn't working. Hosts very nice, friendly. A decent park that could be a lot better.
Current Escapee rate is $14.50 plus electricity, a fair rate.But this is a pretty basic, rather rustic, quiet place in the country. Hard to believe I-75 is nearby. Front office guys were super nice, and friendly park residents & travelers were having food events. Grounds were lovely, with live oak, pine trees, palmetto, fruit trees, hibiscus. Too bad the mosquitoes and ants were plentiful, bad enough to make us glad to leave after 2 days. Nothing much to do here anyway, and the pool was pretty bad. No cable tv, no WiFi. Nice Library plus a modem connection. don't expect too much and you'll be okay!
Maybe the last reviewer loves Harleys and diesel, but when motorcycles are roaring past your campsite all day, it's not funny. It was finally quiet at night, except for the constant hum of the Interstate traffic nearby. This place is okay for an overnight, mostly because of the fair rate ($20 Good Sam ), free wifi, and the cable tv that the other parks don't have. But it's just basic cable: networks,QVC and junk. Grassy,sandy sites are mostly on a slope and not level at all. Bathrooms were dirty, with mold on the shower curtains and walls. The manager (or was he the "wonderful owner"?) was never in the office- new arrivals had to go find him, even though it was a busy weekend. Too bad he wasn't cleaning the bathrooms. Keep your visit brief and don't expect anything fancy.
Nice little park on a wooded hillside , near shopping and highways but fairly quiet. Very nice, responsive staff. Only 2 toilets & showers but quite clean (not used much), and only 2 washers and ONE dryer. Site wasn't level and the hookups were in the far back; water connection was on ground so these were inconvenient for dumping. Big rigs here get the super, level sites, use 50 amp and more electricity and water, yet pay the same as the smaller rigs who use less resources. Still, this is a nice stop. $26 is the Good Sam discount rate.
Two of the earlier reviews are actually for the other RV park that is behind the Heartbreak Hotel,next to Graceland. This one is 3/4 mile away, and the ONLY reason to stay here is that it's cheaper and has Passport America for one night. This park is a miserable dump, and a sorry excuse for RVing. The managers don't leave the office unless forced. The bathrooms were dirty, without toilet paper, and no light over the 2 showers. Tiny laundry room was worse, with dirt and water everywhere and an overflowing trash can. Sites are in a paved lot, not level, and mostly tight. Wifi seems to be available for a charge. Manager did not mention it, did not offer the bathroom key, nor any other info. No security efforts, of course. The walk to Graceland is okay if you are careful; don't do this at night. Avoid this place if you can.
Probably the nicest,cleanest KOA we've ever seen..and we don't like KOAs. Wish they were all more like this one . Large grassy areas, great for dogs and playing. Nice pool- it's closed for the season but you still pay full rate (always a rip off). Bathrooms were spotless. Cable TV is super, wifi works very well. Sites are sort of close but park is very quiet, and thankfully not near the highway.
Ok for an overnight. Place is clean and functional , and young owners are very nice. Cable TV is super, wifi was fast and clear. There are some W & E sites, a little cheaper than FHU. Easy to get to from highway, tho very close to noise in the back of park. Stay in the front near office if possible.
Nicest place in town, which isn't saying much, but a lot better than the other place along the Interstate. Trees, grass, level gravel sites. Pool was closed since it's October but park still charged full price. Bathroom was spartan- cold concrete floors and no hot water, just warm. Owners exceptionally friendly. Free wifi was great; cable TV is good too. No highway noise.
We were here soon after Labor Day and did not know the main campgrounds, pool and restaurant were all closed. The out of the way, small Mare Barn cg was the only one open. It has been renovated,with paved sites (not level), and the bathroom was ok although there are coin showers. Only one washer and dryer in the laundry room. Seems like they could reduce the fees in the off season. What makes this place worthwhile is the history. The 2 Museums are fascinating, and it's fun to ride a bike around the park. Saw a horse club going on a trail ride so that seems to be a big deal here.
"Rustic" park means red clay sites ,which are muddy red when wet, and the "office" is for show...never saw anyone there for most of 2 days. You put your money in an envelope. This campground seems to exist as a sideline for the tool and storage business there. Good news is that it's only $13 for Passport America members, and you barely get that value. Bathroom and the shower room (one each for each sex) are located in the same run down shack as the "office". Laundry was in a shed; filthy washer and dryer. No TV reception but cell phone works. Too bad this dump is a PA park, tho it is cheap. Would not come back regardless.
This is sort of a pocket park, tucked away behind the main drag of Custer. The location in town and the Black Hills, the Passport America rate ($14 FHU but only 2 nights), and strong ,free wifi are its best features. And then there's the unique owner, Rock,who is entertainment by himself. Big rigs will have a tight fit and some of the hookups are in odd places. Sites fairly level, not much shade, but grassy areas. No laundry, no tv signal, but cell phones fine. The 2 common bathrooms are in a shack of sorts but fine inside,with nice woodwork. Mickelson bike trail runs right along park, so be sure to ride or walk it.
Well, this is not a "perfect" RV park as the last reviewer claims. Perhaps they had their own internet and tv set-ups, and didn't need the laundry room. This is a nice place for the Black Hills but be aware that the wonderful shade from the pine trees means you probably won't get a tv signal with an antenna. And the rustic, woodsy setting is on a hillside so big rigs and trailers will have an interesting haul. The laundry room, gameroom, WiFi access and office are way down the hill and a tiring walk back when carrying your stuff. Still, the owners are very nice people who work hard to keep the place clean and friendly. A great deal with Passport America, tho only on 3 weeknights. PA rate was $13.50 for FHU. Sites mostly level; some a bit tight.
I agree this is a great place, especially for a city campground. Wonderful, huge shade trees and grass throughout the park, plus a bike path to Spearfish Canyon or into town, and with a City Park with playground and fish hatchery. I came here based on this website reviews' and wasn't disappointed. Only negatives are the sewer and hookups are all way back and hard to reach. And the showers were in a separate building from the bathrooms, and not always clean. My site was close enough to the office that the free WiFi worked. This park is nicer than a lot of private places, and the rate is fair ($26 plus tax). Cable TV is outstanding. Decent space between sites, and all are level gravel,with a picnic table.
A bargain at $15 with wifi, clean tho few restrooms, and a mostly quiet area. But it's still Miles City- super hot and buggy. Sites long, not quite level, no shade. Cable tv available for $20 rate. Nice owners. Fine for overnight and avoiding the KOA.
Posted rate is $10 (dry camp?), or $15 for electric but some sites are 30 amp and others 15, and not all have water. No one was around to collect $,nor have the shower key, nor answer questions. There are big shade trees along the river and big sites, but you get the smell of the oil refinery on the other side of the river, traffic on the highway, and some worrisome types in the campground. Plus plenty of mosquitoes. Make it a one- nighter and keep going.
Nicer than average park and the best one right in Livingston. Location is super- 2 quiet blocks from the highway, yet close to shops & grocery stores and a bike path into downtown. Yellowstone NP is 50 beautiful miles away, down Paradise Valley. Free wifi works very well close to the office, and extended cable TV is great. Private restrooms are handy, but stuffy without windows. Small but clean laundry room. No shade for most sites; trees only on perimeter.Plenty of grass, especially since friendly owner leaves sprinklers on all day, creating small pools. $26 rate is for a back-in site;FHU pull-thrus are more. Sites are long and level, but often a bit narrow. Your neighbor's slide-outs may be too close if the park gets full. Try to avoid being parked underneath the bright street lights;also try to get the shade trees. A nice, quiet place and worth a summertime visit for the location.
Don't be fooled by the picture and info on their website. This is just a dumpy gravel parking lot behind a motel. RVs are packed in side by side, and your sewer hookup can be next to the neighbor's front door. Half the pull-thrus are over the sidewalk and only if it's not blocked by street parking. Noisy trucks rumble by at night, and area doesn't look safe. It is fairly close to town and the tourist traps. Bathrooms are clean once, then a mess rest of the day. Forget the laundry room. No host on site and no one from motel office comes over; they don't care. This place gets 2 stars only because it offers "free" wifi and cable tv. Look for a nicer place, avoid this one if you can.
Really nice park in a quiet, isolated area (see previous comments). Be sure to have a reservation going in -or you're wasting 10 miles RT- since many sites are taken by long-termers. People here seemed very cheerful and friendly, from the hosts to the campers. Workcamper does a great job of guiding you into your site, which will be very close to the neighbor sharing the hookups. But the other side may have 20 yards of grassy space. Water quality is excellent. Laundry and bathrooms small but clean. Wifi was inconsistent; they are at end of local DSL line, so be glad it's "free". NO cable or antenna tv reception, and cell phone reception was tricky. But if you want a beautiful, quiet backwoods place, this is it. Check park website for lower off-season rates. Your dog will want to stay forever- you'll never find another park with more room for them to roam.
An okay park, nothing special except for the huge laundry center in the office, and the location close to Henry's Lake and West Yellowstone. Pretty sunset view. Many seasonal residents ($400 mo.), best to call for nightly reservations,especially Passport America. PA get half off, then they add $4 for electric, wifi & tax ($14 rate ), plus there's a $5 key deposit. A good deal for this area, tho a plain park. Sites not level, water wasted daily on weeds, barely TV reception, Verizon cell works, wifi inconsistent but usually strong. Friendly, greasy spoon cafe next door. Park owners were either brusque or nice,depending on the situation. Worth a repeat visit.
What a DUMP!! Place was deserted, bathrooms were trashy (only one for each sex) and housed in a shack, office shack hasn't seen life in ages. You leave your money in an envelope. Seemed that only Passport America members and big rig owners who had no place else to go, plus a few residents, were the only ones here, and not by choice. The PA rate is $15 for FHU and not even worth that. If we were really desperate again , we might stay here for the $15 , but there are much nicer places an hour or so away...parks that actually have managers on site. Tis place is an embarrassment to RVing.
Somehow little Arco has 2 really nice RV parks. Too bad there's not much to do in this area besides Craters of the Moon. I camped in both parks and liked this one better, although they are both fine. Landing Zone is quiet, very spacious, very clean and well-kept. You won't see many bathrooms this nice, nor such green grass in dry Idaho. The owner, is a hard-working, polite fellow. Free Wi-Fi worked very well, and cable TV was a bonus. $27 base price can be less with club discounts. Well-worth a stop and will certainly be back. More RV parks should be like this one.
Previous comments are correct. Really well-cared for park and a nice place to stay. (But don't get carried away by the free breakfast; hot cakes were big, but bad.) So laid back that the office was closed most of the afternoon, with a sign to go pick your site. Would have helped to have the usual park map with list of tv stations, bathroom code, checkout time,etc. Didn't even get that when checking in and paying. Still, worth a stop and repeat visit.
If you like hot water, this obscure place is for you. Down a long country road , it's an oasis of green trees & grass, flower beds and peacefulness. The old pools are cement with rock bottoms, but were clean and comfortable. The park sites are level and mostly spaced, with plenty of tent space too. The downside is that it's still an old place, with tiny, damp bathrooms, with 1 shower, 2 stalls for RVers, and a good walk away from the sites. There is no cell phone nor TV reception, no pay phone, but amazingly, a wifi hot spot in the office, but is also a long walk. Cost is $27.50 a night for W & E with a dump station on premises, and includes a hot spring soaking for 2. Singles pay the same rate. Be warned, there are plenty of mosquitoes and flies around. Worth a trip if you really like hot springs.
Yes, location is key here. No where else to hook up so get reservations if you want to stay awhile. Park is fine for a base, with some shade, WiFi signal was usually low but connecting, cable TV. Bathrooms needed cleaning, and were often busy (only 2 showers). Management nice but office shack closed a lot. Bus stops nearby and takes you to Hailey or Ketchum. Great bike trail and river a few blocks away. Some traffic noise from highway. Sites really are narrow but pull through. Will stop here again; no choice, but still, an okay place, and you can hardly beat the location .
Nice place for the city and a good deal with membership discounts (about $20 plus tax). Worth staying a little while as a base. Very clean and large showers, laundry room, rec room, plus grass pet area and some shade. Owner very nice and helped park. Wifi and cable tv work great. Rather stay here than Boise. Only one mile from 84 and close to Warhawk air museum. Will return if this way.
Nicest park in Burns but it's pretty basic. Close to the road, only 2 showers and toilets, 2 washers & 1 dryer working, tight sites...but the shade trees, good cable tv , and wifi save the place. Wifi signal is strong but was pretty slow during the evening; better late at night. Try to arrive early enough in the afternoon to get a decent site and hope that the regulars don't walk thru it all night, which happened to us.
Pretty park with wide field of grass and trees, wide sites. Unsecure Wifi signal is good, but too much traffic on it til late night. Sadly, you get wifi "free" but the showers are 25c . Bathhouse were not clean in the evening. Owners live on site but weren't seen after dinner time, even with late arrivals. They lock the laundry room at 6pm; if you are lucky, you can get a key for a $5 deposit. Late comers don't get the bathroom code. This is a decent, better than average place, but seems over priced for what you get and with some of the hassles.
Great, different kind of place..a real treat. On an 8000 acre cattle ranch with expansive views, fishing , a hiking and biking trail , small but nice, super clean facilities, and wifi in the picnic area (doesn't work well at the site). Mgr. was very friendly and helpful. Worth the one mile gravel road into the park area, so don't pass this up if you are anywhere near. Good discount rate too.
Wonderful place, wish we could have stayed longer. Very clean, well-cared for, one of the best in the state. Too bad wifi was a problem, mostly at night. strong signal but too much traffic on it. Good idea to make reservations, and to get the cheaper interior sites unless you want to splurge for the waterfront views.
Welcome to Camp Add-On, where they get you with extra charges. It's $4 each for cable, WiFi, pull-throughs,etc. for an urban parking lot with no features and next to a busy road. Only reason to stay here is Passport America half price ($26 in our case) or if you need this location by Manitou Springs. Mgr. was nice, restrooms and laundry clean, and WiFi works well if you pay for it.
We came here because the park is on the bus line and convenient to the great stores and such on Cerrillos Rd., plus it has the cheapest weekly rate in the area. There is free wifi and cable, and the park is quieter than you would expect for its location. Too bad it's something of a dump. The bathhouse "cleaning" achieves little, and that's also the home of 2 washers and dryers, right in the restrooms- very unusual. Interesting mix of beat up old trailers and motorhomes along the perimeter, and large fancy rigs in the pull-thru sites, which cost more. Large area for dogs in the back, and a small playground. Families around, full-time residents. Next time we'll look at the other parks first.
Older, very plain but mostly clean Escapees park. The cost is just $10 plus electric for members; $16 for others. There are plenty of other parks in the Deming with more features and not too expensive. This is just a wide dusty parking lot, with no charm, and a lot of grumpy old people. No cable TV, no wifi, no good reason to stick around. Would not return unless desperate.
Best bargain in Arizona for Passport America members, especially golfers. Kind of a remote area and you wonder if illegals from Mexico will wander through, but there's a nice golf course across the street with a tasty restaurant- the fish fry on Fridays is super. You can take a bus to Bisbee and the Safeway, or walk or drive to Naco for the Mexican dentist. Not much to do otherwise if not a golfer. Free wifi that worked most of the time, but cell phone signal weak. Clean bathrooms, small clubroom, nice laundry. will definitely come back.
Sort of creepy feel to this place, located in a run down neighborhood near the Fort. Numerous trashy trailers of permanent residents on perimeter, nicer traveling RVs in smaller area,but mostly overnighters. The clubhouse/bathhouse bldg. is the only nice thing here and the clubhouse was closed "for the season" since the snowbirds had left. Free wifi advertised but of course, it didn't work and mgr. didn't care. Sierra Vista deserves a decent RV park in town but there are none.
At the special Rally rate of $27, this is a good deal, available short term. Big park, with lots of people at all hours, so you want to lock up and be careful. Very nice facilities plus good restaurant on site, and nearby Camping World. Front desk staff and managers can be quite rude and arrogant, living down to their reputation. Reporting them to a supervisor will help somewhat. This would be a better place if they cared more.
I was here on a Western Horizons sales pitch freebie deal; not sure of exact daily rate. Wouldn't want to stay here unless it was free, it's so unfriendly to newcomers. Staff is only helpful to members or prospects. Sites are unlevel, crowded, and sewer hookups are nearly out of reach. Water is poor quality, undrinkable.Wifi is expensive and only works in small area. Fitness room equipment torn & outdated. Spa and pool dirty.This is just a big paved parking lot that needs a lot of improvement. Would not visit again.
When I was here, the rate was $35. If it is now $47, that's too much, even if it is quite a nice place. The distance out of town makes it a little inconvenient and it's not quiet during the day because of the planes flying overhead and all the road and park construction. However, the wifi is free, and the facilities are very good for what's there. Too many park models and owner RV sites gives the park a strange, sort of snobbish karma where they ignore the short-termers and cater to the wealthy live-ins. And be warned, the wind is always blowing.
Not many reasons to stay here unless you are a serious Escapees person saving money. Rate is $15 plus electric. Long way from town, no cell phone reception, no wifi. Lady manager is hostile and unhelpful; husband was nicer. Lots of old people who live here most of the year and don't care about anyone else. Water is terrible but there is a R/O machine to fill jugs. Would not return nor recommend; many other choices in Yuma area.
This isn't a RV park and the 6 "campsites" are more like parking places with hookups and used by the workcampers, but not always taken. If you want one, you should call ahead to reserve a spot. Passport America members get the $20 rate for a site plus lots of soaking in the wonderful hot springs tubs overlooking the river. Wifi is free but wasn't working well from the site; best to go to office area. Manager and workcampers were very nice and helpful. The only bathroom was new, and very clean. This place is rather funky and a low-key, relaxing stopover. Will return for sure.
Passport America rate makes this a great deal, but it's a nice place to stay anyway, and the owners' family is super nice. Great mountain views plus peace and quiet. Just realize that there's no TV nor cell phone reception for now, and only one bathroom.
