We have stayed at the Carson Valley Inn before but it has been a couple of years. Overall it is a nice park. However, the sites are fairly short. We stayed here in a 20' travel trailer and had a difficult time fitting our Toyota Tacoma in the site with us (had to park sideways). However, all the hook ups and Wi-Fi worked just fine and the park and facilities are well kept. Guests of the park have full access to the adjacent hotel amenities including a VERY nice indoor pool and Jacuzzis. Also, the casino restaurant has great food at unbelievably low prices. Overall, you can't really go wrong with this this place!

Rate reflects a 10% players club discount. Wonderful and immaculate park. Beautiful indoor pool and spa, level concrete pads with grass in between, 1st class amenities, free casino shuttle. We can't say enough. Restrooms are set up with private toilet, shower, and sink. First class the whole way. By far the nicest park we have been to. Front office staff was not overly friendly, but maintenance staff and shuttle drivers were great.

Absolutely gorgeous park with a great location. Sites are in a forested area and very private. Sites closest to the beach may get some road noise. We were in the G loop and it was very quiet. Our kids loved the beautiful beach (short walk), playground, and the pesky racoons! We did not want to leave. Can't wait to go back!

We had a great time at this park. Very close to Bend, but with the feel of "real" camping. We had space 67 which is large with lots of privacy. Perimeter sites are much larger and easier to maneuver in to. Be sure to check the length when booking. Campground was immaculate and the camp hosts were great! Would definitely stay here again!

Good for a one night stop, but not for a lengthy stay. Park is clean but shows its age. Lots of bugs! However, it is not just the park. Klamath Falls must be the bug capital of the world. Cable TV had a lot of channels and the free WiFi worked great. Would probably stay again if we were stopping in the area.

I agree with some of the other reviews that many of the sites are short. The width/spacing wasn't bad, but we had no room to park our truck at our site. Luckily the park wasn't very full and we were allowed to park our tow vehicle in the adjacent site. Our trailer is 29'. Anything over 32' would be tough. Guests are allowed to use the pool at the adjacent hotel which is very nice. We were a bit disappointed that they no longer provide the casino and food coupons, but for $25 we really have no complaints. We would stay again.

The good - VERY KID FRIENDLY/ORIENTED. There is tons of stuff for the kids to do. The teenage workers and maintenance crews were very nice. It is a good location central to beaches and area attractions. The bad - VERY KID FRIENDLY! Although our kids had a great time, if you like peace and quiet, give this place a miss. There are kids everywhere! We didn't mind a bit, but if you are retired and just wanted some quiet time, this is not the place for you. Also, it is VERY PRICEY. Our space was tight. There was no room for our truck. We had to park it in an adjacent site or in front of the office. There is no cable TV, you would expect it for $90/night! Front office staff is rude and very unfriendly. Overall, our kids had a great time on the playground, bouncing pillow, etc. but I doubt we will go back.

We were pleasantly surprised by this park. The staff was AMAZING! They went out of the way to be accommodating and made our visit a very pleasant one. Like the other reviews state, it is dusty. However, you are in the middle of the desert and you should expect this. We had no trouble with rough roads as some had complained about, so perhaps these have been fixed. Overall, this is a great park that included spotless facilities and a great staff. We highly recommend!

Campground is nice, quiet, and very close to Bryce Canyon park. The shuttle service wasn't running while we were there but starts memorial day weekend. It picks up at the campground. Ruby's has everything you will need. Our kids enjoyed the 2 swimming pools and wi-fi worked well. I do agree with the other reviews that the office staff is quite disorganized and not overly friendly. Best place to stay while visiting Bryce.

Beautiful setting at the entrance to Zion park. The river front sites are great, but no sewer hook ups. If you can live without the sewer, these are the prime spots. We had a full hook-up site which was quite narrow. Not much room at all once the slide was out. The restrooms were clean, but get A LOT of use from the tenters. They give you tokens for the showers when you check in and you are only allowed one shower per day per person. The maintenance staff was very unfriendly and looked a bit like they just got out of jail! The location is beautiful with the surrounding sandstone cliffs and the Zion shuttle will pick you up right in front of the park and take you anywhere in town. It is a great way to get around and Springdale has a good number of nice restaurants and shops...something for the whole family. I do agree with the other reviews that the laundry prices are the highest we have ever seen. Wi-fi is only available at the office, but worked well.

Location, location, location! Only park with full hook-ups within the park boundaries. The shuttle will pick you up at the campground and you are within easy walking distance of the village and all the services (market, post office, restaurants, etc.). Our site took a bit of leveling but was spacious. Showers are located at the adjacent campground, but we just used our own. Overall, this was a nice, quiet, park and a great base camp to explore the Grand Canyon.

Our rate reflects a 2-for-1 rate for Nevada residents. Great park with resort like amenities. Good location with easy freeway access and close to all the major attractions. We could not get wi-fi at our site and were told we were in a "dead spot." Worked fine at the clubhouse though. I think this is the best bet in Vegas!

Date of Stay:

The park could use some updating. The sites are very narrow. Luckily we had no neighbors while we were there. River front spots are very scenic but have no sewer hook ups. Staff was friendly and the location is great, within an easy walk of historic Coloma. We would stay again!

Date of Stay:

The recreation facilities at the park are quite nice. IT IS WORTH PAYING FOR A PREMIUM PLUS SITE! These sites have been completely redone and are quite nice. The regular spaces are in desperate need of sprucing up as is the north side of the park which consists of permanent residents. Many of those are trailers which appear to be no longer road-worthy. However, our kids enjoyed the pool, spa, game room, and playground. We did have a great stay and would come back again in the future.

This is a very basic park. Essentially a large paved parking lot with hookups, although there is a grassy tent area in the center of the campground. The east side of the park is primarily permanent residents. They seem to have all of the short term visitors stay on the opposite side. The park is kept clean and is a good overnighter, especially if you have kids. There is a ton of things for kids to do at Casa de Fruta including train rides, carrousel, gold panning, playgrounds, etc. We would stay again if passing through the area.
