We stayed in a newer part of the park. The sites are very good in this section. That is why we gave it a nine. This new area has new facilities all around and is big rig friendly. The older section has few hook-up, no sewer. And, the facilities are older and not as well kept as one might want. I would rate the older part a six. There are great recreational opportunities from boating on the lake to hiking in the coulee. We learned a lot too!

Nice place to stop for an over-night. The main attraction is the resort that is just down the road. Good clean campground with large level sites.

Host couple made this place great! The sites are level and shaded with trees. The park is clean and very well kept. Close to recreational options including the Trail of the Coeur d' Alene that is 73 miles long and a beautiful ride. The Route of the Hiawatha that is spectacular. Plan a few days to make the most of your time here!

The park is very nice, however, the campground is not up to standard. The thirty amp electrical service is weak at best, the water pressure is low, and the sewer hookups are broken. There is not a level site in the place and it is very tight all around. Only the most skilled should attempt to get in here. We used site 203 because it was the most level and easy to escape from. The old facilities are just that old and hard to keep clean. The access road is paved, but it is a pot holed mess.

This is a “Resort” with large log cabins that feature beautiful furnishings, manicured landscaping, and even a hot tub. There is a lakeside guest lodge and General Store. They offer “Canvas Cabins” placed along the three stocked lakes. You can rent a boat, picnic, pitch your tent on a secluded campsite, ride your bike, or wander the peaceful grounds. However, if you show up in an RV, expect much less! For the $62 a night rate one would expect the best of amenities. Not this place. The six RV sites are poorly placed, poorly designed and an apparent after-thought. The sites are dirty gravel that turns onto a black soup when wet. The water and electric service is place on the wrong side of the site making hook up a challenge. There is no sewer, and no dump station on site. You have to drive five miles back to town to empty your holding tanks! There is one bath house, but there are lots of “Port-A-Jons” around. Come on! Sixty two bucks a night and you have to use a “Port-A-Jon”! (Remember, no sewer or dump site.) When we arrived we could not get to our RV sites because of low hanging tree branches. It took three trips to the shed before they had all the tools to do the job. Forty-five minutes later we finally got to our site. This might be a “Resort”, but not a “RV Resort”... especially at the outrageous price.

If you do not mind dry camping and love the outdoors this is the place for you. The sites are large and well spaced out. Several are "Big" rig friendly, but not all. Plan ahead, and reserve, if you need a big site. The park is beautiful and great for hiking and mountain biking. The location is excellent for touring the island too. Keep in mind that there is no dump site in the park.

Nice park, but the noise, from I-90, was just too bad! The campground is good with a combination of back-in and pull-through sites. There is plenty to do with the Iron Horse State Park trail near by. The lake is beautiful, and the park has about five miles of hiking trails.

The park and campground are nice enough. The problem is the noise from I-84! The campground is right next to the highway and there is constant, 24 hour a day, noise from the 18 wheelers heading east! The campground is a bit tight for big rigs. I would not try to bring in a 45 foot bus! We have a 37 foot fifth wheel that we got in just fine. Not too much to do in the park due to close proximity to the highway.

This campground is a gem! It is new and has everything you need. I would have given a "10" if the sites had sewer. Great location with lots to do for the outdoors lover. The interior roads and sites are paved. It is easy to navigate and get parked. The park is next to the Sawtooth National Forest and the City of Rocks National Reserve. Plan ahead because the are few services close by. Also note that six of the sites are designated for equestrians.

This is a great State Park in a spectacular location. There is plenty to do and great places to visit. I noted that the park is NOT big rig friendly, however, a skilled driver will do fine. It is very tight here and undulations may risk high centering of very long rigs. The interior roads and sites are paved and properly equipped.

Great little RV Park and, the best in Torrey, UT. We were going someplace else but changed when we saw this place. Great people that keep a very nice campground. It is close to Capitol Reef N.P. too.

We enjoyed our stay in this park. The campground is small and quiet. It is a little tight, but big rig friendly for the skilled. Lots to do and see. We liked the hiking and felt that the views in this park, are the best we have seen. It is a small campground so reserve if you are going to visit.

This is a very nice recreation area. The campsites are top notch! I would have given a "10" if 50amp was available. The sites are paved, level, and easy to back into. The park is beautiful and worthy of several days of exploring. Bring your hiking boots, boat, bike and any other toy you have. Plan on a fun time in Show Low too! The rates are going up to $30 a night starting April 1, 2010.

This is a nice small RV park. I would have rated it higher, but it is right next to US-70 and there is quite a bit of traffic noise. It is close to down town Ruidoso and all the recreation the area offers. Bring lots of electric, water, and sewer hook up stuff. The services are at the end of the sites, requiring lots of extentions.

Date of Stay:

The RV sites are very spacious and yield great views in every direction. Too bad the lake is almost gone! There are miles of great hiking, biking, and horse trails; but they have not been well marked. It seems that this park is past it's prime since the lake has been lowered. Too bad, it must have been great at one time. The park is about 5 minutes from town.
