We stopped here for an overnight while traveling. The Electric was low and flucuated from below 108 to about 112 volts. We parked way in the back, and were happy for the quiet site. Many Pecan trees in this park. We picked many off the ground. They were tasty. We would stay here again but hope they fix up the power. Had supper at Chewey's restaurant in downtown Van Horn. Great food and pleasant surroundings. Fried Chicken to die for. John Madden's Hall of Fame.

This place has sites with 30 Amp electric which flucuates from 108 to 112 but never reached 120 volts while we were there. It is located one block from the Interstate and two blocks from the Railroad Tracks. Traffic noise and train noise was very loud, all night long. We would not stop here again.

This was a fine spot for an overnight while on the road traveling. Far enough off the road to not hear the traffic. Sites were level and roomy. Power was 120 Volts and was steady. We would not use this campground as a long time stop over due to it's location out away from civilization. Did not use the on site restaurant. Refueled at their fuel stop which was convenient and clean. We would stop here any time we are in the area.

Membership Campground but they do not follow membership rules. We had to listen to dogs barking almost constant while here. Spoke with Manager, might as well have spoken to a tree. No effect at all on dogs barking. Good place otherwise. Nice pool and big dog walk area. Still cannot understand people bringing dogs to campground and then going off all day and leave dogs inside motorhome to bark. Big staff but don't know why. Streets and sites cluttered with dead leaves. Very little grass in campground and it sure cannot need all the help to do little amount of grass area. Will come again as we are members and this is part of our membership system.

Easy on and off the Interstate, far enough to not hear any road noise. Freight trains do go through the valley but not objectionable noise to us. Windy when we were here with some dust. Stayed two nights and will stay again if in this area. Visited Anaconda Town and the State Fish Hatchery. Too bad the Anaconda Mining Company moved out and left the town to struggle. Tours available to the old smelting and copper works.

Stayed here on an overnight between Cloverdale and Fernley. Membership Park so don't know day rate. Just guessed. Stayed in the Cliff Area and just backed in, hooked up water and electric, got rooftop satellite and relaxed. Had been raining during day so did not walk off blacktop. Awoke in morning to heavy frost and some ice on ground. Toad was really frosted. Got underway and went to Fernley. Would stay here again. Must be a nice place in warmer weather season.

Great spot to rest and relax or to go fishing if that is your thing. They have a nice Marina and launching area. Only warning is to be aware, there is a speed bump at the bottom of the entrance road, down hill and if you don't come onto the bump square, both wheels at once, you will rock and roll in a big rig. We broke wine glasses and one plate. The rest of the stay made up for the entrance. Do the shoreline drive in your toad and see the sea life. Also drive the red wood forests. They are beautiful.

Stayed here 4 nights while passing through the area. Typical Thousand Trails / NACO Preserve. Will come again if in area.

Reserved for one night, stayed for three days. Wonderful place with nice management. We had a water leak and needed pipe fittings so went to Ace Hardware in town. Huge inventory for a small town store. Had everything we needed. Would stay at Desert Rose anytime we are in the area. Highly recommend it to everyone.

Great place to get plenty of rest. Watch for the deer in the evening. Owner runs hunting trips in the nearby big horn mountains and keeps a string of pack mules. Very interesting people to talk with and very helpful on advice of where to go and what to see. Had lunch at close down town place called "The Dash In". Excellent fried chicken and buffalo burgers. We will be sure to stop here again if ever in this area area. Beautiful drive over the Big Horn Mountains towards Yellowstone along highway 16.

Date of Stay:

Passport America Park. Flat hard ground sites, easy pull throughs, good electric power, and water was good. Will be sure to stay here again if in this area. Easy drive to Yellowstone East Gate and also short drive to Cody. Be sure to visit the Buffalo Bill Museum Complex. Very interesting. Came in over Route 16 over the Big Horn Mountains and went out going North out of Cody and avoided the high pass roads on Route 14.

Date of Stay:

R.P.I. Park. Also has their own members who tend to ignore non-members which didn't bother us but might bother others. Site was large and everything worked. We toured the area sights and enjoyed having a nice secure area to stay in. If in the area we would look forward to staying here again.

Passport America Park. Very nice helpful management. Behind the Super8 Motel. Easy on and off highway but did not notice any noise. There is an earth berm which I think absorbs the noise. Be sure and visit The Corn Palace and the Historic Downtown Area. Good shopping in the area and fuel stops as well. If we are ever in the area we would stay here again.

Passport America Park. Easy on and off Highway. Clean and neat, many seasonal units here. Would stay here again if in area.

Passport America Park. Easy on and off highway but not noisy. Didn't hear the road noise except when we went outside for our exercise walk and stopped to listen. Nice park with good facilities. No sewer hookups but plenty of pumpout tanks pulled by golf carts and a nice clean easy access dump station. Would stay here again if in the area.
