Nice park near the South access to Henry's Lake. Most sites are back to back with your neighbor so that you have a larger front yard area that has trees and grass. Helpful staff leads you to your site and provides area information. Located in secluded area 5 miles from highway, surrounded by great views.

This is THE park to stay at if you are going to ride the Paiute Trail or even if you are just overnighting! Very big rig friendly with easy access. All pull through sites arranged so that your rig provides afternoon shade. Access to the Paiute Trail from the park for ATV/UTV riding. Respectful riders -if you're not into ATV's- it's not bothersome. Owners are very friendly and helpful. They continue to make park improvements. We continue to return to this park because it's a great place to stay!

Great park to overnight in the Pocatello area. Fairly new park with all pull through sites. Not busy on a weekdays making entrance/exit easy. Cross pathways to the sites are at a 90 degree angle, so if the park was crowded your back wheels may need to travel over the grass. On I-86 take exit 58. If westbound, take a right at exit stop,300 yards to T intersection and right again. Well signed. Near industrial area but also overlooking Portneuf River and Batise Springs.

Rate shown based on weekly rate. This park is wonderful and we will return! The owners are very helpful and put time and energy in to make this park great! It is right near some of the best OHV riding on the Paiute trail, but don't worry if you're not into ATV'0. The riders are respectful in the park, speed limit is 5 MPH and the park is quiet. Shade trees are young and growing but the layout of the park allows afternoon shade from your awning. Long and level pull through sites. Wi-Fi works well, as do the utilities.

A dry camping experience with awesome views of Arches National Park! Campground is 18 miles from entrance station, with a steep climb with switchbacks at the beginning. All sites are on the reservation system and reservations are needed! There are a few sites suitable for big rigs. Nightly ranger programs at amphitheater and several trails are within walking distance of campground. The pull through sites are sites that are wide areas in the campground road.

Register for space at the Shell station. Shell station has big rig access for diesel. Camp is basic, no frills. Sites have shade trees along side and are very wide, gravel. Plenty of room to maneuver. Good water pressure and reliable electric. I would stay here again.

We were not able to stay at this park due to being full. I did not change the rating to "NO" on Big Rig accessible, but please note there is a large Cottonwood Tree on the loop turn that is low hanging. It took out a skylight on our 5er which is 12'9" tall. You can swing way wide to avoid it as long as the road is dry. There are only a few spots to accommodate a long rig. The "pull-through" spots are wide spots in the road, without a picnic table or easy access to "yard".

This park is a gem in the Raton area, off highway 64 about 6 miles from town. Spaces are well separated and although gravel, are fairly level. Area has Pinon Pine and Juniper for a bit of shade. Site had 30 Amp and excellent water pressure. There is a well maintained dirt road from the entrance station to the campground, but well worth the drive! This feels like a state park! We would definitely return to this park.

Perhaps I would be able to rate the park better if a few key factors were improved. When we checked in we were told to pick any site we wanted without a tag, that there were plenty open (mid-week). This would have been great except the camp hosts had not pulled the old tags by 4:30PM so it was very difficult to see what was available. Also in order to get into sites on the left side of the loop, you have to go in from the left, but the site posts are in the center lane. There are very few water access points and a fellow camper had it hooked up directly to his trailer. Again the camp hosts drove by and said nothing. Fireworks were being shot off after quiet hours in late July. On the positive side, the office attendant easily refunded our site fee after we decided to only stay one night. Be sure to follow brown state park signs to entrance: US 34 West to Madison street. This is primarily used by boaters. Sites are close together, the crescent pull-through sites are awkward and little shade at many sites. Probably would be fine if you knew which site to choose. Used the swim beach and it was clean.

Owners are very friendly and helpful! They have two clean swimming pools and a petting farm for kids with daily bottle feedings. When this park is full, there is very little room between sites (only the width of a picnic table). Wi-fi was not working and advertised cable only had local affiliates (about 5 channels). Reliable electric service, but water pressure very low. Convenient to Spearfish Canyon and historic downtown. Easy access to I-90. Cash or checks only. Good Sam rate shown. Open sites or shaded with nice large trees.

There are many activities available at this park including a small wildlife zoo, petting zoo, storybook land, playgrounds, mini golf, go carts, a lake for swimming/fishing, bike/walking trails. The sites in the original area have narrow roadways, often with cars protruding into the space available. Sites in "new" section seem to be built for bigger rigs...but since it is new, the sites are still growing their grass. Aberdeen sprays for Mosquitoes, which helps to keep it more comfortable. Laundry is a bit pricey- $2/wash & $1.25 for 25 minutes of dryer time. Reservations suggested as this seems to be a destination for many South Dakota residents.

The Game Lodge Campground at Custer State Park is a gem. It is centrally located. Buffalo can usually be seen right from the campground. There are shady sites near the stream and more open sites on the 'top' of the loop. Paved trail from Game Lodge to Grace Coolidge campground for biking or hiking along the stream. Peter Norbeck visitor center is nearby. For 2011, there is a new dump station near this campground on the Wildlife Loop road (also a station at the campground). Pond at campground for kids to play in as well as a playground. Laundry facilities- cold water only. Factor in a reservation fee for non-resident of about $8 and park entrance fee of $15 for a week. We would definitely stay again.

This is a very nice campground with 50 amp service. They are remodeling the bathrooms this summer. There are no showers available. The campground is very convenient to the visitors center, where you catch the shuttle up the canyon or into town, so no need to drive once you're parked. We stayed in a pull through site B22 that had a nice view from the front porch. Do not leave any food outside and make sure your coolers are secured. The squirrels WILL get into it & your tent! Be sure to fill with water prior to parking. Dump station is to the left of check-in booth and is a two way station.

This is a very nice USFS campground. It is about 9000 feet elevation, so is cooler than the valley below in Torrey and near Capitol Reef National Park. There is a dump station at the top of the loop. It is a single loop with back-in sites on either side. Sites are large enough for big rigs. Many water spigots throughout campground. There is a hike to a nearby waterfall. We would return to this park.

We stayed in the Elk Ridge section of the Dutch Charlie area. This state park is big, so the different campground areas are quite a ways from each other. The Elk Ridge area is shaded by Pinyon and Junipers and is the most shaded campground. State park has many nicely developed trails with good marking. Very scenic location. Electric at sites with shared water. Bring lots of hose. There is a dump station at the Dutch Charlie section to the right after the check-in station. Camp hosts were wonderful! We would definitely stay again. If reserving, pay attention to the side of the road your site is on. It is a one-way road, so you may be "backwards" in your site.
