This park has an RV area with about 24 sites, and then a separate area under the trees for tents. The RV area is an open field without trees. You are within 100 yards to the Rio Grande river so a great stop if you're wanting to fish (I did and caught several). The camp hosts had already left for the season, so we got to meet the owner, and he was very friendly and accommodating. Sites are level. 50 amp service on 5 sites, 30 amp on rest. Power was good, but only 2 other rigs in place, so don't know how it would be during a busy summer. Water pressure was also very good. The park is several blocks away from the highway, so no traffic noise. It is about a block away from a railroad line, but we didn't hear any train traffic in the 2 days we were here. A good overnight stop, and probably would also be a good spot for tent camping on the river in their tent sites.

This park, unfortunately, didn't live up to expectations from previous reviews and from their website. We were taken back by the appearance as we drove in. We thought we had pulled into a junkyard at first, only to find out this was indeed the park. To be fair, there are two entrances, and the north entrance is the one I'm referring to. The south entrance takes you through a "nicer" part of the park. Many permanent residents, and several were in rather old dilapidated trailers. We had to back into our site and our back window overlooked several rusted out 1940's vintage farm trucks and tractors (30 feet away) with grass overgrown around them. There are no bathrooms, showers or laundry here. There also is some kind of oil field facility across the road that runs all night and sounds like a train engine. Very noisy and didn't get much sleep because of it. On the positive side, the owner is very friendly, the sites were level, power good(50 amps). However the water pressure was pretty low. I had to remove my pressure regulator to get what little pressure they did have. Lots of trees, but the sites are pretty close together. In addition, you are almost 15 miles from Durango, so if you're looking to do anything in this part of the state, you're going to have to drive. Next time, we'll spend a little more money to get in Durango, and not having to drive back and forth will probably save money.

Rate reflects Passport America rate. Normal rate $28 per night. Definitely an older park. Easy access in and out. All spaces back-in, and quite a few big rigs comfortably in their spaces. It appears that some of the spaces have newer power poles, but they are placing two sites on one pole which means that the right hand site will have to run your power cord under the rig to get to the power pole. If your cord is long enough, no problem. Good power and very good water pressure. No frills park. Below average restrooms, and laundry facility was just one washer and one dryer, but worked fine. Some road noise, and the closer you are located to the road, and if your on the left side of the park, the more chance that the 24 hour gas/convenience store on the other side of the fence will have some noise. Try to get on the right side as you enter, as it backs up to an empty field, and a little quieter. It's OK for an overnight or two, and if your able to get the Passport America rate, but if you're having to pay the full $28 then there are definitely better choices in Cortez. Park is convenient to restaurants and within a mile of Wal-Mart.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. If you're not into the extra amenities (pool, store, putt-putt, play area), but just a very good place to park and camp then this is the place to go. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Power is good, water is good and spaces are not overly crowded. There were trees between spaces, along with picnic tables. There is also grass between most spaces, which is kind of rare in this part of the country. You're parking on sand & rock, but it's hard pack desert floor and even when it rains, it drains fast and isn't much of a problem. Far enough off of the highway to miss all of the noise that some of the other RV parks have. Bathrooms and laundry were very clean and they also have a book exchange. Very quiet and comfortable park while visiting all of the sights around Moab.

Great park on the west side of Glacier. Convenient to the park and to Columbia Falls for food and groceries. Owners are extremely friendly and always visible maintaining the park. They have great expansion plans. Even though the park is in more wide open area than other parks in the vicinity, that made for easy getting in and out, plus no problems with satellite. Pull-thrus and back-ins are very large and wide. Bathrooms were extremely nice and clean with very large private showers and dressing area. Laundry facility was also very clean and modern. Not a lot of extra amenities, but you're right next to Glacier Park, so what else do you need? We will definitely make this our stopping point when we are on the west side of Glacier.

As per the previous review, restrooms were clean. Also laundry facility was well kept and modern equipment. Sites are level and gravel, and close together, but there is at least a tree and table between each site. Off of the main roads, so park is quiet at night. Just enough lighting at night and not over lit. I didn't use wi-fi, but cable had plenty of options and included in price. Owners were very accommodating and constantly visible doing maintenance. It is conveniently located in town to gas and food and is a good base camp for enjoying the park. Reasonably priced for what's available in town, especially if you're not needing a lot of amenities but a good, comfortable, convenient and safe place to camp. We will definitely stay again.

Great stop on our travels through Montana. It's very obvious as soon as you drive in that the owners are very proud of "their home" as they have a beautiful, yet very comfortable feeling park. The overnight pull-throughs are very long and easy to get into. All of the utilities are properly placed and cable is included. Laundry facilities were very clean and modern as were the bathrooms. They also had a gathering room with a TV for use while doing the laundry. The Park is far enough away from the highway and interstate to not hear any road noise. However, the railroad tracks about a mile away were sometimes noticeable as the trains applied their brakes coming down the mountain into Missoula. It didn't last long, but, depending on wind direction, can be heard at night. This will be our park of choice as we travel this part of the state.

I found it very enjoyable for an overnight stay with large gravel parking areas. Pull throughs and back-ins. It was only about 25% full when we stayed, at end of September. The owners told me they had and extremely busy summer. Hookups are conveniently located along with 2 sewer hookup locations. No trees of any significance, and there was a lot of space between sites. It is far enough off of the road to limit road noise at night. We will stay again. (866) 682-5272

Not a lot of options in this part of the state, but this one is a good stopover for overnight or two. There were several resident trailers from wind-farm workers, but they weren't too noisy. The sites are fairly level, but can be a little close together. There is no sewer hookup, but the owners do offer a pumping service. They also have a dump station that you can use on arrival or departure. They do allow washing rigs on sight for an extra fee. The bathrooms and laundry were nice and clean. They also had a hot tub that was very enjoyable. The added surprise was that the shower facilities were individual rooms that also had a bathtub, which you just don't find on the road that often. If you like to fish, you're right on the banks of Cut Bank creek and some pretty large trout are right there. Owners are great and make every effort to be sure your stay is comfortable. It's not a park with lots of amenities, but it's a great stopover as you're traveling this part of Montana. Safe, quiet, easy access, level sights, well maintained. Will stay here again as we travel through this part of Montana.

Definitely a great place for a stop-over or to spend a few days. Staff was excellent. Workampers checked us in and escorted us to our site. Then the owners came by the next day to be sure everything was OK, and spent some time chatting. The drive into the park is 1/4 mile gravel (measured) and very smooth after pavement ends, so just take your time, no problem. It's well worth it. The sites are on the side of a hill overlooking a great view. But the sites have been cut into the hillside and are all level. All of the roads in the campground and all of the sites are gravel and well maintained. There is lots of well kept grass growing between sites and around the rest of the campground. Tent sites are set on the grass and should be fun. They have 4 small cabins for rent, or you can even use the full-size tipi if you want a different experience. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were spotless and in excellent condition. The history that surrounds this area is phenomenal, and you're right in the middle of it. Little Bighorn Battlefield is about 4 miles away, but visible from the campground. You can spend a day at the battlefield, and then get away from the crowds back at this campground. If you have horses, they have a corral to keep them in. We watched some awsome sunsets, and had a chance to be laid back for a couple of days. This will be a must stop for us as we travel this part of Montana.

Rate reflected Passport America rate. Unfortunately the campground is NOT how it is represented on their website. All roads and sites are dirt/sand. If there was any gravel, it's gone. Most sites are very narrow, but just a few of the pull-thru sites are surprisingly wide, wide enough to park my truck next to the 5th wheel. There is cable that's included. WI-FI is strong, but not free. Staff was friendly, but not overly helpful. The laundry facility was nice. There are a lot of permanent residents. (Office staff told me that as many as 60 were permanent.) Some of the permanent rigs are nice and well maintained, but unfortunately, many were very old and falling apart. The website and brochure handed out at check-in represent a couple of fishing areas and a walking area around the river. All of these were in total disrepair and there was no water in the fishing ponds. We felt like we were walking through a junk yard. I agree with a previous review of total neglect. After staying an extra 2 days because of a surprise spring snowstorm, we had to leave with the sand/dirt roadways turned to mud, rutted and potholes everywhere. What a mess. If nothing else is available, this is OK for an overnight stay, but we will look elsewhere first.

Rating based on comparing to other city parks. Not a full service campground. This is a city-owned campground located right on the Platte River next to the city golf course. 15 sites, but they would be very tight if all 15 were used. We were there with 6 other TT and 5th wheels, and had plenty of room. All sites are back-in, but very long for any length. Parking mostly on very well manicured grass. All sites very level. 20/30 amp service good. Water at all sites, however they were working on a couple of hydrants repairing winter freeze damage. Nice location, as it's right on the Platte River, and across the street from the Historic Oregon Trail Ruts location. A nice walking trail takes you from the campground to the Ruts about 1/2 mile off the road. Off of Highway 26 through town, turn south on Wyoming Street for one mile. Follow the Oregon Trail Ruts signage to park on left. Check-in at the golf clubhouse. Open only April through October. No sewer hookup or dump station. Nice stopover point for the night, but if they've got a lot of other takers, the sites will be very tight. We would stop here again.

Nice state park. $18 camping fee is addition to $6 daily entrance fee. Wide variety of sites to choose from on 2 sides of the lake. Very little shade, but each site does have a picnic table with shade awning, along with a fire ring. Bathrooms very clean and plentiful. Laundry facilities at several campgrounds in park. Both pull-in and pull-thru sites. Electric only service at each site, but 30 amp service was good. Dump stations and water located at entrance to each campground. Lake levels were extremely low, so the lake front sites were still well away and above the lake. Beautiful view of the mountains. The north side is pretty close to residential development, but enough on the other side of the hill to not see it from the campsites. We were here mid-week in April and very few other campsites were occupied, so we had our choice away from everyone. Rangers patrolled frequently. We will return, but only in spring or fall. It's probably a very busy campground during the summer.

As stated in previous reviews, the entrance is narrow, but manageable. We had no problems with a 36' 5th wheel. Roads in the campground are gravel. Some sites have gravel pads, others have concrete. The sites are very close together, and it appears that sometimes they are having to skip some sites because of slides from adjoining units. Sites are mostly pull-thru and level. 50 amp service is good, water pressure good. We were in the upper lot, and had no problems hitting the WI-FI. Cable was also provided. Limited shade. Clean facilities. New laundry equipment. Staff was great, and escorted us to our site. Very convenient to both the interstate (1 mile) and to town. Very quiet park. Appears to be quite a few well maintained trailers being used by local workers. Great place for an overnight, or if you're visiting Cheyenne. We will stay again.

$28 rate based on weekly rate. This is the 3rd time we've stayed here, but the first time to post a review. I've read some of the previous posts, and disagree about the staff. Every time we have been here over the last 2 years, the staff has always been very courteous and helpful. Yes, the park is a large gravel lot, but well maintained. They were actually adding additional gravel during our stay. The sites are all suitable for big rigs and most are pull-thru. The staff escorts you to your site. We asked for a specific site this last time and they accommodated us. 50 amp power is good and water is city water and very good. WI-FI worked for all three weeks that we were here in April without a hitch. There are a handful of obviously permanent residents (maybe 10), but all are in modern and well maintained trailers and MH. There is an older RV storage lot next door that is not associated that may be part of the confusion. Local TV channels are transmitted from only 10 miles away so signal strength is very strong. We only heard the train (about 1 mile away) once during our stay, and that was because of unusual wind direction. Bathrooms, showers and laundry are very well maintained with newer equipment. Very conveniently located to Wichita and even though it's not to far off of the highway, this is a local loop, so night time traffic is minimal. Dogs on leash rule is enforced, and we never saw a stray animal during our stay. We have stayed in several other parks in the Wichita area, and this is now our first choice. Needless to say, we will return as we move through Wichita.
