This is a very appealing park in many ways; the sites are plenty large and level, lots of grassy areas for our dog to roll around in, your choice of shaded, woodsy areas or open fields if you want to assure satellite reception. There are many attractions for kids, including a very nice pool, playground equipment, and what looked like a huge, pneumatic trampoline that got a lot of play from the youngun's. The bathroom facilities are clean, but pretty ugly in terms of decor and finish. The lady running the place when we checked in was friendly and helpful to a fault, and was very kind to our dog. We would definitely stay here again next time we're in the area.

We selected this campground principally because of its location on a hill top in close proximity to Oneonta. The trip up the hill was a little rough, and our toad was coated with dust at its completion, but the ride was worth it. The view from the CG is lovely, and the site itself is remarkably nice. There is a very nice pool, with an adjacent kiddy play area, a fishing pond, a pavilion for meetings, and quite a few cabins for non-RVers. The public facilities are maintained fastidiously, and the management is extremely friendly and helpful. It's clear that they are interested in developing a first rate campground. We stayed for four nights, over the Fourth of July. We were told by the owners that Good Sam had refused to list them in their Directory, ostensibly because of insufficient facilities for children. We've been to lots of RV Campgrounds listed in their directory that had far less in the way of kiddy stuff. We'll be writing to Good Sam to challenge their failure to list this fine facility.

We've encountered a number of RV Parks that have adopted the name "Resort" without any upgrade of their facilities to justify such a classification. You can't say that about this place; if there is such a thing as an RV Camping Resort, this place defines it. It really has it all, something for everyone in the family, a great place for kids, some very good separate facilities for adults, and obvious good management of the operation. We got exactly what we were looking for, a secluded pull-through in a quiet part of the park, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Can't knock this place; would give it a 10 rating, but we reserve that for places like Seven Feathers in Canyonville, OR that have achieved absolute perfection in RV park design and operation.

It's surprising that there haven't been any reviews of this park submitted to date. It seems to be a very popular family oriented park near Augusta, drawing a substantial number of patrons, at least on the weekend we were there. It is situated on a lovely lake, with lots of boating and canoeing potential. The location is very attractive, though the park seems to be not as well maintained as it should be. The road into the place is loaded with potholes, the interior gravel roads need more gravel, and our site was not provided with water, as it was supposed to have. The restrooms, though clean enough, were in need of an upgrade. But who are we to complain? It's obvious that a lot of people really like this place, and, for the money, it's probably not a bad deal!

Thanks to RV Park Reviews, we've found another high quality campground! We can say that the remarks of other recent reviewers are quite accurate in their praise of this place. The management is outstanding in their upkeep of the sites and public areas, and in terms of friendliness and accommodation. The location is excellent for visitors to Bangor, Old Town, and even Bar Harbor. Our site was large and grassy, getting a paws up from our furry companion, and the walking areas are spacious and well tended. Restrooms and showers are scrupulously clean. The nearby restaurant serves really good food at reasonable prices; you should try at least one meal there. We stayed here for a week, and enjoyed every moment. Thanks again, RV Park Reviews!

You'd be hard pressed to find a cleaner, better organized RV Park than this one. Everything is spic and span, manicured, planted and tended. A very attractive place, set next to a very scenic marshland, though the actual park is very woodsy. No chance for satellite, but cable is excellent. The place is obviously well managed, with a lot of eye toward detail. Only complaints are a little tightness in the sites, and some difficulty in maneuvering our rig (38') around some of the curves. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Don't understand why there have been so few reviews of this charming park. We spent three nights here, enjoying every minute. Yeah, it's an older park, no Wi-Fi, no cable TV, and forget about satellite in this woodsy setting. We think this contributed to our feeling of peacefulness here. The place is well off the highway, with little encroaching noise, a lovely brook runs along the edge of the park, a pond with a gushing fountain is provided, along with a beach and other recreational features. Didn't see any deer, but chipmunks and squirrels were abundant. It's nothing fancy, and kind of dated, but very peaceful and pleasant. And the management is friendly and accommodating,to boot. We enjoyed our stay here, and would certainly come back if we were in the area.

This is our second time here, and we like it mostly because it is near the home of the friends we visit in the area. The park is really big, and most of the sites are occupied by weekenders who have trailers and fivers located on them. Very quiet here during the week, much more activity on the weekend. The transient sites are large enough to accommodate big rigs, and have 50 amp power, though no sewer hookups. Several dump stations are located throughout the park. The park is pet friendly, and the woodsy setting provides great dog walking opportunities; my dog loved it! Rest rooms are convenient and clean, though we balked at the pay-by-the-minute showers, using our friends' home instead. The owners are pleasant and helpful. The interior roads could use some work. Overall, we found it to be a relaxing place to hang out, and we stayed for a couple of weeks.

After reading all of the reviews that have been generated by this Park, all I can say is, wow, we do have different views of the same place. All I can do is offer ours. Yes, it is a little hard to get to, requiring meandering down some country roads that are actually quite pleasant. Yes there are a lot of wet and muddy spots in the Park, particularly in the Springtime when the creek (more like a river) is high and ground is still running off from the recent rains. And, yes, some of the facilities, like the restrooms and showers, are rather dated and need improvements, which it looks like they are getting. The place ain't perfect. But I'd like to offer an award of some kind to the person who is responsible for the plantings throughout this Park, where every square inch of ground that isn't need for another use is sprouting beautiful flowers, leafy hosts and other attractive plants, veggies like lettuce and tomatoes, all creating a wonderland of beautiful gardens. It is, by far, the most beautiful display of practical and ornamental horticulture that we've ever seen in an RV Park. Even if you don't camp here, it's worth the trip to see it. On the basics, we found our utilities to be entirely functional and adequate, our site level, the office and support personnel very friendly and helpful, and the setting, alongside a major creek, very lovely. The place is great for dog walking, with an excellent K9 Korral (bathroom) available, and nice trails that our dog really enjoyed. We really enjoyed this campground, and stayed an extra day to savor it's beauty. Hope you like it, too.

We chose this park solely due to it's location in relation to our trip, and were pleasantly surprised at what a great place it was. We were personally guided into our space, which was fully functional with regard to utilities. The dog park was spacious and well appointed. The grounds were neat and well attended. Restrooms and showers were clean and sported well-chosen decor. There was a rally going on there at the time, and we envied the people attending, knowing that they would get a lot of enjoyment from the place. Wish there were more independent campgrounds that cared about their customers as this one does.

It might be a little difficult to write a good, objective review of an RV Park when most of the time you spent there was during a severe sandstorm, but I'll give it a try. Our site at the end of a row was of ample size and fairly level. The utilities were quite good, and well situated. The surface of the park is, of course, sand. When the wind isn't blowing, this doesn't cause much of a problem. When the wind is cranking up 50 knots and more, you'll find sand in everything. The park area itself is somewhat protected by the bluffs (very picturesque) surrounding the site, but there's a notch in one end, and we were right next to it. The coach was rocking like we were at sea. The rest rooms and showers were impeccable, and the store was well stocked. It's obvious that the management takes its job seriously, and do a good job of keeping the place well maintained. And, I should point out, it's the only game in town!

From what we could see, this park is the class act of the Moab RV Park collection. Noteworthy to us (and our dog) there is a good sized strip of grass next to each site, providing a pleasant area to plant our chairs on for some relaxing in the afternoon. The park provides an escort to your site to help you get situated easily. Rest rooms and showers are exemplary. The location is perfect for visiting the nearby National Parks and the town of Moab, and a Colorado River tour boat operator is right next door. The construction of a new bridge across the river has made access to the park a little less easy than it might otherwise be, and the marking for the exit needs improvement. All in all, a very good experience at a reasonable price.

It's always a pleasure to encounter an RV Park that is virtually faultless. We can usually find something annoying to use in knocking a facility. Not at Montrose RV Resort. The management is friendly and helpful, the grounds and sites are meticulously maintained, the utilities are excellent, and the restrooms are spotless. The laundry room is equipped with plenty of washer/dryer combos, and there is a pet walk where you can let your dog off leash. Every site has an expanse of grass and a mature tree, along with a picnic table. The town of Montrose itself rates very high with us. In a valley just north of the San Juan Mountains, it boasts an attractive and thriving downtown area, plus a commercial corridor on the south end of town with supermarkets and shopping centers. From here you can easily tour in your toad to all the local points of interest, of which there are many. I should note that we only give scores of 10 to facilities that are among the most outstanding in the country (LV Motorcoach Resort, Seven Feathers in Canyonville, OR for example). We'd like to give Montrose RV Resort a 9.5 if we could! We'll certainly be back.

Don't expect a resort type facility with manicured lawns, spas on every corner and bathrooms done in porcelain tile in Green River, Utah. If you need a decent place to park your rig for a few nights in this locale, I don't think you'll do better than Shady Acres. It's all gravel, but that's the most practical thing to do in this environment. The big rig sites are long and roomy, and the utilities are very good. The bathrooms and showers are immaculate, and the management personnel are friendly and helpful. If you want a nice place to walk your dog, put him in the toad and go to the Town Park on Main Street; he'll have a good time while you marvel at the huge missile at the front of the park. There is one really good reason to spend some time in Green River; the John Wesley Powell River Exploration Museum, which is right on the bank of the river. The displays are of excellent quality, the story of the exploration of the Green and Colorado Rivers is well told, and the movie that they show is first rate; best we've seen. The staff is super friendly and helpful; five stars to this place!

This is a very pleasant place to stay if you're visiting the St. George area or Zion National Park. The management is very friendly and helpful, the sites are large and well maintained, the utilities are excellent, and park cleanliness is fastidious. The free WiFi is flawless. The only real negative I could cite is the adequacy of the bath facilities, which amount to one per sex. Two would be twice as good. Leeds is a charming little town, with a number of historical homes and buildings. Don't miss Silver Reef and the Wells Fargo Express Museum; quite a story!
