We have traveled all over the country and visited 53 of the 59 Thousand trails properties: this used to be one of our favorites. They still have a beautiful property but all the facilities are in disrepair and just dirty. Our original site had the electrical short out underground (melting down our electrical plug) and they had to close a whole row of sites which were not reopened over the next 12 days that we were here. The whole park has been turned into more of a time share than a campground. 120 of the 250 sites have been sold on an annual basis and sat empty for most of the three weeks we were here. That left few decent sites available for campers. The manager is clearly out of his depth and totally unapologetic for the deficiencies with his park. All he wants to do is sell more sites to " meet his goal." Most of the staff seems to be very unhappy and were usually very grumpy when you could find someone. This was our third stay here, and very much enjoyed the first two stays, but we won't be back and may even get out of Thousand Trails altogether.

I really can't believe the previous high ratings for this place. We are long time Thousand Trails members and have been full timing for a few years now and this is just another substandard TTN park. The main part of the park is full hook up and separated from the river sites by a road. The river sites have no sewer and it is difficult to get Sat. reception anywhere in the park, though Direct is a little easier to get than Dish is, at least at the river sites where we were. As mentioned before, Verizon cell is good but we had to use the booster for the air card. Families will like the pools and the clubhouse is OK as is the mini golf. Our biggest complaint is that many of the sites are very close together, especially on the river side and the strangest thing we found was that they didn't bother to put showers or restrooms on that side. You actually have to cross a Hwy. to get to a restroom or a dump station from the side with no sewer connections. When you leave, if you want to dump, you have to exit a gate, drive down the road, enter the main part of the park, drive through the park and head back to the main entrance to enter the dump station. I would really like to meet the genius that designed this place.

This would be one of the better Thousand Trails parks if it were not half KOA. As mentioned previously: Thousand Trails has decided to keep half this park as a KOA because it is a big money-maker for them, but this violates the entire concept of a membership park. Other than that, we really liked the park and found everything to be very satisfactory.

A nice place to stay if you are visiting this area. We found phase II to be much nicer than phase I, and as with most Thousand Trails properties, the facilities are well worn and in need of much updating, but the sites were large and level and most were satellite friendly.

We stayed using our ROD membership. Probably one of the best parks in the area with the State Park across the street being the best. Very boater friendly (they let them park anywhere and everywhere) but we found this to be a very strange park. They have very different triple in-line pull-through sites and some weird back-in sites as well. They are absolutely obsessive about the watering but the grass is nice. I just wish they would not water my RV. Staff is not overly friendly and enforcement of the rules is very selective at best. Very good free Wi-Fi. We probably won't be back.

A very nice piece of property with a postcard waterfront on the bay but as usual with Thousand Trails parks, much work needs to be done. This is a very wooded park and many of the sites are very overgrown with bushes and tree limbs. Very well located to see the sites in this area and the staff is very friendly.

Great overnight stop. Just off I-15 about 10 miles south of Idaho falls. Nice grassy sites and level gravel pads. All pull trrough sites. In a nice county park. Payment is on the honor system.

A very nice State Park covieniently located just off I-15. It was a quick stop for us while traveling north but they have a very nice marina and other facilities for boaters. We will stay again next time through.

One of the best overnight type parks we have ever been to. Very friendly staff and large pull through sites with great utilities. Just far enough out of town to be quiet but still close to shopping and restaurants. Unbelievable price and they throw in free laundry. We will be back.

Basically a dirt parking lot in a not very nice area. There is a camping world nearby so that is a plus but I can't think of many others. The price was with Passport America. We will look elsewhere next time.

We stayed at the RPI rate and that is the rate without sewer. They wanted an extra $5.00 a night for sewer. We found this place to be noisy, dirty, dusty and the sites were quite unlevel. They are 10 miles out of Cannon City and there is no gas or stores close by. We marked it up a notch because the free Wi-Fi worked good. We couldn't get any bars on our cell phone even on the antenna. OK for an overnight if you are traveling US 50, as we were, but we wouldn't recommend it for anything else.

Nice park, probably the best of the Western Horizon parks we have been to. Great views of Blue Mesa Reservoir from anywhere in the park and very convenient access if you want to fish this body of water. The sites are very long but most are a little unlevel. Also bring plenty of sewer hose as I needed a full 30 feet to get to my sewer connection. Nice facilities and a lot of activities but a store would be a nice addition since this park is about 13 miles out of Gunnison if you forget something.

This was an average park in a great location. The sites were kind of short for larger rigs but fairly level. The National Park was just up the road and downtown Estes Park was just a short drive. The lake is more like a small pond that they stock with trout and you can catch 3 fish a day for $7.50. The river runs right alongside the campground and you can fish in that. If you like elk they are nightly visitors to the point of being annoying. We would probably stay there again.

We used Passport America and found this to be a nice en-route type park. Very friendly and accommodating owners. We had a pull through site where we didn't need to unhook and everything worked great. Not much in the way of amenities but a good overnight stop at a reasonable price. We will stay there next time through.

Surprisingly I could not find any other reviews of this campground. We have been traveling the country for over a year and this is one of the top five parks we have been to. We came in under ROD as this is a membership park and we were treated great. There are two large lakes for fishing and one of them has a couple of swim areas on it as well. To our surprise this one had the best fishing also. We caught loads of Bass and Crappie while we were there. Nice level sites and the cleanest facilities we have ever seen. They really have too many amenities to mention here but try the cafe, the food is great. Kind of far from town so bring what you need even though they do have a store for the basics.
