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.

This is a good park for an overnight stop, with great work campers employed to greet you properly. The pool and spa were a refreshing surprise after a hard day at the wheel. The morning coffee and rolls were very welcome.The pull-through site was level with a pea gravel surface. It was however, like a massive motorhome parking lot. Parts of the park aren't very nice. The utilities were very nice, the Wi-Fi was awful even though we were parked right next to the antenna. The cable TV was great. There is very little shade here. We would stay here again for a night.

This park is great pleasant surprise campground to to stay at, with new 50 amp service and asphalt paved level pull-through parking pads. We had great DirecTV and Verizon Wireless coverage. We had nice shade too. There were very few campers in the park. The fishing is supposed to be great in the lake too. We would definitely stay here again.

The rate reflects the senior rate. This Corps park was nice but not quite as nice as others we have stayed at. They haven't upgraded to 50 amps like others have. There are no water hookups at the sites so bring your own water or fill your tank at the many faucets spotted around the park. The park volunteers were great. There is no recycling in the park; shame on you Corps of Engineers. This is the home area of Will Rogers so we enjoyed the the boyhood home and the memorial museum. We would stay here again.

The park is a pretty good one. We loved the barbecue they have every evening. If you happen to be here on a Saturday, do not miss the Gallup Flea Market. I even had a traditional Navajo meal of roast mutton and fry bread there. Anyway, back to the RV park. All of the hookups were adequate; you may wish to employ a pressure reducer on the water. The dog park was great and our dog loved it. The parking surface is gravel and spaces are pretty level. They have side by side parking. There is no recycling in the park which they should consider adding to their offerings here. The family-staff are very friendly and competent. They have a great little store with lots of interesting and useful items for sale. We definitely would stay here again.

Too bad we are only staying here one night. This is an absolutely beautiful park and campground. We stayed in the full hookup CG near the entrance. The camp site was paved with concrete and pretty level. We could leave our toad hooked up since we had a pull through. The utilities were more than adequate. You will want to use a water pressure regulator here. The only thing that was a problem was the confusing signs directing us to the campground. Sorry we had no time to try out the trout fishing that brings most people here. We would certainly return here if we are ever in this area.

This is a nice Corps of Engineers park but not quite as nice as others we have stayed at. The sites are electricity only and we were able to secure one with 50 amp service. There are water faucets spotted around the park to fill your tank. There is absolutely no recycling of any kind in the park; shame on you, Federal Government. We were able to get a great DirecTV signal from space 50 and our Verizon Wireless signal was adequate as well. We would stay here again.
