We forgot to ask for the Good Sams discount. The owners and staff were excellent. There is some noise from the Interstate but it is tolerable. The full hookups were adequate and well placed. The broad expanses of lawn were nice. The only real negative is that the sites are so very close together. Many people just stay overnight. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A good place to stay with full hookup sites. The site was fairly level and was able to level up with no difficulty. The hookups were adequate and there is a Verizon tower on the grounds. A great place to camp when the other campgrounds in Winterset are full. There is a sign stating that the campground is closed July 6-20 for the county fair. That date would vary some year to year. We definitely would stay here again.

This city park campground is a real gem; the city park service that administers this campground is a real credit to their profession. As city campgrounds go, this one should be rated an 11! The full hookups were adequate; the water faucet is placed between two spaces so make sure you come here with more than a 25 foot fresh water hose. The only improvements that could make the park absolutely perfect would be to add more gravel to areas that can become muddy when heavy rains come and the park should add co-mingled recycling. You really do need to call ahead if you wish to stay on a weekend or holiday during the prime spring and summer season. There are lots of things to see and do in the area; so, plan to stay a while if you can. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice clean, level spot with water and electric. Cost is based on the use of senior pass. This is a rare COE Park that has co-mingled recycling. The park is well run and the staff were both friendly and very helpful. The tree cover was such that our DirecTV could not be received but we were able to bring in many local hi-definition channels with our crank up antenna. The dump station was set up properly but can get very crowded on the weekends. We used Recreation.gov to make a reservation without additional cost. We would stay here again if in the area.

Psst, don't tell anyone about this place; it's our secret. I found it in Escapees Day's End. The 30 Amp electrical service is more than adequate for our 50 Amp RV running only one air conditioner. The park is beautiful. There is potable water to fill your tank and a real nicely designed dump station. We seek out these small city campgrounds spotted around the country. The area has received an incredible amount of rainfall so there was some muddy spots in the park. Our parking surface was crushed limestone and could stand the addition of more but what do you want for $7 per night. We definitely would come here again. Thank you Seward for a great experience.

The park is ok for the week we stayed. Price reflects the weekly rate. The roads were rather muddy but the weather has been exceptionally wet. All hookups were adequate albeit rather old. We chose a 30 Amp site since we didn't need to use our air conditioners. Cable was good. WiFi was pretty good from site 66 better than most parks. WalMart is nearby. We would use this park again.

This park's lake and scenery are absolutely beautiful but it is difficult for full time RVers to see a value here. The office personnel were absolutely clueless about where we should park. All of the sites with water and electric are reservation only. We were told on the phone that we could go into the park and select a site. When we showed up, we were told that we could not go into the hookup area without reservations and reservations had to be made two days in advance, so dry camping was our only option. We did find one of the very few dry camping sites level enough and large enough for our motorhome and toad. The whole place needs to be graded to remove the many huge bumps and muddy areas everywhere. Gravel needs to be spread throughout the park. There is no dump station in the park. I doubt that we would stay here again.

This was a great place to stay for a week while the cold weather exits Wyoming. The 30 amp and water hookups were adequate. Found the dump station which probably needs some kind of sign. The whole area is paved with asphalt and is deceptively level. The park is big rig accessible There is a beautiful park with a trout pond, walking/biking path and golf course. There is a nice walkway to the park from the campground. Shopping is nearby; was impressed with the Fresh Market for groceries. We would definitely stay here again.

This park isn't much but is OK for a night stay. The young lady working in the office was very nice and cheerful. The 50 amp service is adequate, water pressure was high so we used a pressure regulator and the sewer hookup was not very good at all. Lots of junk around. Nice little town. The parking surface was thin gravel. We would stay here again, maybe.

The only reason I couldn't give the park a 10 is that the facilities we used with water and 30 Amp hookups were extremely tight for our 38 ft. Diesel pusher. We only have slides on the drivers side so we were able to squeeze in just barely and it took some care getting out as well. If you have slides on both sides or more than two slides forget it unless you can secure one of the larger difficult to obtain boondocking sites. Our site was paved with asphalt. There is a shelter with a picnic table at each site. The shelter is one of the main problems fitting in each space and there are scratches and scrapes on each of the shelters to prove that statement. If we can fit in there, you probably can as well if you know what you are doing. The park is probably the most beautiful state park we have ever been in. If you are a hiker or a bicyclist, this park is Nirvana. The park is just a few miles from St. George where great shopping is available. We would come back here again and again!!

KOAs are usually over priced for what you get and this one is no exception. It is pretty average but it is close to a great casino and restaurant. We stayed here before it was a KOA and it is about the same as it was last time we stayed. We like that we aren't on the strip. Rigs here are right on top of each other with side by side parking. Sites are level and hookups are adequate. We would stay here again.

The whole Salt River Recreation Area which this dry camping area is part of has problems relating to dry camping with RVs. They have shut down two areas where dry camping had been available and so now, this is the only one left where RVs can still park. In cutting costs, they no longer have any park hosts as well and the ranger only drives through evidently not noticing the dumpster overflowing with trash. This place has become crowded and noisy since there is no place left to camp unless you are tent camping. Too bad, this is a beautiful spot. If we stay here again we will drive over first to make sure we can get our rig in due to crowding.

We are new members here and just love it. We are members and do not pay a nightly rate. This could be the most beautiful, best run RV park you have ever been to. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful. All of the hookups are more than adequate. The water quality is excellent. There are beautiful mountain views from just about every site. Unless you come here as a guest of a co-op member, you will have to be an Escapees member. We love being members of this beautiful RV park.

This is a fine place to overnight in a pretty dismal area. The manager was just excellent and very helpful in every way. The hookups were adequate. The parking surface is the local sand, gravel and dirt that when wet is kind of a mess. Everything else is fine. The shade is fairly marginal in an area where there aren't many trees. Let's remember that this is the desert with high winds and blowing sand at times. This is the best RV park we have found in the area so if we happen to be in the area, we would stay here again.

I love this place! We occupied a pull-through site with our 38 foot motorhome. We were able to get DirecTV by peeking through the abundant tree coverage. Make sure you come to this campground with water in your tank and your other tanks empty. There is no dump in the park. There are new asphalt roads and site parking. The campground host was very helpful. I was surprised that you could hear so much highway noise here. Thanks for the co-mingled recycling here; wish Corps of Engineers would do likewise in their campgrounds. We would stay here again.
