For $61, I expect a functioning Wi-Fi, cable TV with lots of crystal clear channels, and a level site. On my recent one night stay in Blackwell Island, I had neither. I was never able to connect to the Wi-Fi, even at 2 AM. All the cable channels were fuzzy/snowy. My so called River Site was in a swamp. Furthermore the place was packed with pre-teen kids who would dart across the road in front of you and the interior roads were torture, for me and my RV. I was not happy and won't return.
This park is located near a quiet residential neighborhood across the street from a public park with a playground and lots of green grass. It's appearance is neat and tidy. I've never felt more welcomed to an RV park. Cable TV and wifi service worked very well. All other utilities were well placed and provided by the city of Lusk. We used the laundry while camped there two nights. The laundry consisted of two washers and dryers which were clean and well maintained. We'll definitely return again if in the area. This is a small park without many reservable overnight spaces so I'd definitely recommend reservations during the tourist season.
I agree this park is generally excellent. WiFi slows with load but is adequate late in evening and early morning. CATV provided by Charter provides plenty of clear non-premium/local channels. Sites are nicely spaced with cement pads. Interior roads are paved. Beautiful grass between sites with some blooming iris flowers when we were there. Scottsbluff Monument is majestically visible to the west of the park. A tiny few negatives: Interior roads are narrow. I was just able to negotiate the corners with my 31' Class C. When you check in, you go to a "bank teller" window rather than to the usual "walk into a room with a clerk behind a desk" but it works and the staff was friendly. In the laundry, you'll find only two washers and two dryers. But the four worked fine and were economical. I'd definitely stay here again if in the general area.
CATV ($2 included in the $26) had more than 50 channels. We were situated at site 41, a good distance from the office Wi-Fi access point, but it worked well. As mentioned, you are within sight of I-90 but the freeway noise wasn't really noticeable. After exiting I-90 at the Adrian exit, continue past the Kum & Go Gas/C Store, look to your right for Franklin. Turn right, follow the signs. I've paid twice as much for less. Adrian, MN should be proud of their campground. We enjoyed our brief stay and would definitely return if in the area.
Very nice park. Level gravel sites interspersed with neatly trimmed grass dividers. Wi-Fi from Charter Cable tested at a respectable 2.8 Mb/sec down. I counted 41 clear channels on the CATV hookup. Other utilities worked as expected. I-90 is visible nearby but road noise is barely audible. Peter D does greet you with enthusiasm as stated previously. His hard work keeping the place neat and trim was apparent. I'll definitely stay here again if in the Sheridan WY area. $32 represents the cash rate.
Unfortunately, this new park missed inclusion in the Good Sam's "Consumer Reports of RV Parks" for 2014. Too bad because I've stayed at many 10 10 10 parks before and this one qualifies. Glorious fitness room with excellent workout equipment in excellent condition. Excellent spacing between sites. Upon check in I noticed that the park brochure said "family owned". So I asked, the affable gentleman taking my CC was one of the owners. This bodes well for the park. Absentee owners lead to park neglect. When I need an RV space in the Tri-Cities area of Washington, I'll definitely stay here again.
Very nice park. Our second visit. My only quibble is that they use TengoInternet which is a hassle to sign up for. You are only allowed two hours of time per 10 hour period and you are throttled after 5 GB. However, if you set up in the Rec Room (very comfortable place) you'll find Century Link access at 13 Mbps down. I'll stay here again.
Park is showing it's age. At the Hi-Deserts exit of I-80 a new RV/Motel park was under construction. Park brochure shows 73 TV channels but most were grainy and a few unwatchable. I'll never understand why RV parks refuse to accept AMEX like Hi-Desert does. WiFi was strong but modest. I measured 3.4 Mbps down with a ping of 80 at about 3 PM in the afternoon when you would think the traffic would be fairly low. I think I'll try out the new park when I come back to Winnemucca.
Sign at entrance said RV Park For Sale but that hasn't affected the park operation. Cash only at check-in, Wi-Fi was speedy (5.7 Mbps down) as provided by Northland Cable TV. They also supply 50+ channels of cable to the park. The entrance road is rutted and the asphalt in the pull-throughs cracked. Good for an overnight or two. Rather basic in appearance but I'd stay here again.
When we camped here in our 30 ft Class C in early November 2013, we were one of only three campers. I agree, sites are mostly not level and most do not have water and electrical hookup. Through careful maneuvering, I was able to find a relatively level pull-thru avoiding the large rocks guarding the asphalt mentioned in earlier reviews. There is a two hole dump located on the way out of the park with potable water. I'd stay here again even if I couldn't get a site with water and electric. Friendly pistol toting staff met us at the entrance gate! Definitely not for big rigs or rigs with toads.
Nice enough for an overnight. Pleasant check-in area with friendly staff. Shell gas station with diesel pumps next door. Internet was served out of Kansas by tengointernet. Pathetically slow at 0.5 MB/s down and 0.5 MB/s up. Ping test at 94 mSec is consistent with the internet supplier for tengointernet originating in Kansas from Century Link. Netflix is probably impossible. There were six teen cable channels available, many were snowy non-digital. Didn't try off air.
Rate above is with GoodSam discount. Rather plain park with four long rows of long RV spaces. Interesting arrangement in that if space 15 noses in from the south then 16 noses in from the north. If the park is full, you might be "utility side to utility side" with another RV. Early in the morning the internet measured 6 MB down and 1.5 MB up. Park TV was supplied by Cable One. Channel selection was excellent. Multiple sewer inputs for each site a great idea. For an over night stop, I'll be back.
I echo the previous reviews and add the following. Located about 3 miles west of I-15, local traffic slows during the night and the park is relatively quiet. I measured their WiFi at about 3 Mbits/se. Adequate, but not extreme. The sites (ours was H1 next to the WiFi) are side by side. Follow the campground map so your utility side matches the park's utility setup. Many of the park's residents appear to be permanent so it has a cluttered look. Excellent for an overnight in Provo on your way through the Salt Lake traffic and not far from Spanish Fork Costco, if that wags your tail.
Immaculate lobby staffed by friendly sympathetic staff. Wi-Fi was strong and reasonably fast at site 40. I measured 1.0 MB/sec down. We arrived on a day where the wind was gusting 40 MPH. Despite the the park being covered primarily crushed rock, we didn't see any blowing dirt. Park is located just east of the Mesa Verde park entrance off highway 160. Should we return to the area, we would definitely stay here.
We stayed one night in this plain but fully functional park in our 5th wheel trailer. The owner came by to collect the fee and we found him to be very knowledgeable about the local area. We enjoyed watching the herd of sheep in the pasture west of the park. Lots of mosquitoes when we were there. Don't miss Crossing Restaurant. Excellent food and service and free Wi-Fi. We will make this park a stop over when in the area. Park is on the NE Edge of Wisdom. Its entrance was somewhat difficult to locate.
Multiple Wi-Fi access points with fast DSL providing the access. Very personable and helpful front desk staff. Side by side hookups through out the park for us are not ideal. I would definitely recommend this park over any of those in West Yellowstone. We found the drive to the west entrance easy. I'll definitely stay here again if I return to visit Yellowstone and will avoid the West Yellowstone RV parks completely.
This campground has beautiful back-in sites right on Lake Hebgen. For sheer beauty, these are hard to beat but expensive! Watch your step as abundant waterfowl have fertilized the lawn. Wi-Fi access point appeared to be a long way from our site but it worked well. A couple TV channels were available using our RV antenna from translators located near Island Park, ID. Don't miss KPVI FM if you like classical music.
We pulled into site 53 which was a good distance from the Ennis RV Village office and the single Wi-Fi access point. My signal strength was -72 dBm, quite low. I was only able to get satisfactory results by plugging in a USB Wi-Fi dongle and orienting the dongle near the window. Also the men's shower head needed cleaning. It only sprayed out of say 25 percent of the nozzle holes. However, nice green grass patches and level sites.
This national forest campground is worth a visit if you have a smaller camper unit. I was able to back into a site with my 25 ft fifth wheel. Pit toilets and manual pump water. But modest price ($5 if you have a golden age passport). Relatively quiet with creek nearby to drown the occasional truck driving by. High altitude means cool nights and lots of trees scents the air.
Campground lacks most of the amenities but makes up for it with its overall appearance and surrounding mountain scenery. No on site utilites but does have a dump and fresh water tap where you can fill your fresh water tank. Quiet, off the I-90 noise. Modest fee. If you enjoy cave tours, don't miss the Lewis and Clark Caverns tour located near by. I live in Montana and have visited many campgrounds. This is one of my favorites.
Their Wi-Fi is supplied by Hughes Satellite and has a maximum speed of 1.5 MB/s. When that modest speed is divided up between all the users in the park, the response times and download rates slow to a crawl. Other than that, the park is as advertised. Convenient to I-15.
They advertise wifi but it is so slow as to be useless. Signal strength in site nearest office where the access box is located was a very low -86 dbm. Before the digital transition, they used to be able to get three over the air channels. I have a converter box and couldn't get any. So bring your satellite antenna. No cable TV. Nice town and grassy sites. Montana Ag Museum is definitely worth the modest entry fee. River walk along Missouri River is first class.
