This place is spotless. The grass around the sites looks almost as manicured as a golf course. They do run sprinklers every night, so you might be careful what you leave outside. Outstanding service. I needed some limbs trimmed so I could get my slides out; the park maintenance person was at my site checking it out before I could even walk back from the office. Several times I needed to purchase items from the town and the office staff were very helpful. This park is only 1 mile from the West Entrance to Yellowstone, so it is very convenient to the Park. Travel time from here to most of the major sites is about 1 hour, unless you get in a "bison-jam." Then all bets are off. The wifi here is good. However, it is only free for two devices, so you may have to choose. Very good cellular service (Verizon) if you need that.

The full-hookup portion of Colter Bay was very wooded and beautiful. Sites were mostly, but not completely, level. If you must have satellite TV, you probably won't be happy here. There were lots of trees everywhere. Wifi was not available except in a very few of the common areas, and cellular service was poor at best. I was able to get into the site and get my slides out but doing so required careful positioning of the motorhome to miss the trees. However, the campground was clean and the staff was friendly. Considering the number of people who are in and out, they do a good job. The woman with whom I spoke during check in was particularly helpful in letting me know where everything was. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here again if I were to return to Grand Teton NP. Just don't plan on any internet access.

The park staff was very helpful. For example, a branch on a tree was too close to one of our slides; they quickly trimmed the branch for us. Every time I had a question, the staff was very happy to respond. Some have complained about the smell. There is a feedlot behind the park, and sometimes there is an oder of livestock. We found that most of the time, the smell was not that strong; it was simply a farm-smell. Every once in a while, depending on the wind, the smell was a bit stronger. I guess if you are a city person, that might be a problem, but for a country boy, even at the worst it wasn't all that bad. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for the views, and for the great service.

This place personifies western hospitality. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The park is small, and the facilities are limited, but it is fine for a one-night stopover. Most if not all of the sites were pull through. Right behind the park is a pasture; we heard cattle in the pasture and on the morning of our departure we spotted some pronghorn antelope grazing.

As others have said, this park is very convenient to the Interstate, and several eating establishments are within easy walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet and makes for a nice walk after a long day's drive. The facilities that we used looked like they had been recently upgraded. There is not much here, so I don't know how this would be for an extended stay (though there were obviously some people in a different area of the park that were long-termers), but for an overnight stay it was fine. The only down side is that the park entrance is off of a service road behind a service station. It's well marked, but you do have to look for it.

The service was indeed excellent. We arrived a bit frazzled after driving in the rain and occasionally heavy traffic all day. The host was right there to meet us and showed us our site. We took care of the registration a bit later, which was a nice touch. This is a small, family owned park, and it feels like it. The facilities are a bit basic if you are looking for a resort; it feels more like you are staying in someone's back yard - if that someone happens to have 16 full hookup sites, about half of them pull through. For me, this is a positive. The only down side at all was the wifi was intermittent and it was slow when it worked. But at least I didn't have to pay extra for it, and I had a good Verizon connection when I needed that. So, overall, a nice little park if you want to enjoy some of the recreation in this area.

There are a lot of good comments about this park, so I will just try to add a few new things here. The walking trail is 3.03 miles and very easy to follow - well moved and rather obvious. It's wide enough for 3 people to walk abreast. The sites closest to the river have concrete pads; the other sites have gravel. There is lots to do here, and if we care to brave the bad roads and crazy traffic, Memphis is only 20 minutes away. Overall, if the park were closer to my home, I would come much more often. The biggest tip I can give is, be sure you follow the directions they give you to get into and out of the park. That is a much better route than what the typical GPS will give.

As others have commented, the sites are a bit close together. However, the park is clean and well mintained. There are a few, but only a few, junky full time residents. Most of the full time residents take pride in their piece of the property. The big advantage is that it is close to Disney and to the fun of Old Town Kissimmee. Wifi is available for free for Brighthouse customers; there is a charge for others. Or use your Verizon data card. There is good cellular service. The laundry is nice and there are plenty of recreation activities here on the grounds. We will be back the next time we are in this area.

As the park website notes, the restrooms and pool are closed for major renovation. Not a problem for me, but anyone stopping here needs to be fairly self-contained. That caveat, this is a good, basic place for a stop over. The sites are grass and fairly level. We had good wifi, good power, and good water pressure. The owner was very helpful and friendly. One more caution - if you use Passport America, it is cash only. For other types of transactions you can use credit card. As often as we travel I-10, it is good to have a safe place to stop. We will be back.

The office team was friendly during check in. We did have a problem with our water hookup, but the maintenance team responded very quickly and soon had the problem resolved. What they could not do anything about was the very low water pressure. The grounds were attractive, even after all the rain they had recently had. The biggest drawback was the sites were so tight. I literally could not open my awnings because they would have touched the RV next to me. I could not even walk around my motorhome without going onto my neighbor's site because the vegetation separating sites was jammed up against the side of my motorhome. It was a place to park. An expensive place to park. I am not sure I will be back, even with the friendly folks on staff.

Yes, as others have noted, the noise of the trains and I-95 is a bit of an annoyance if you are outside. We didn't really notice the noise that much inside our motorhome. The narrow roads were more of a problem. I was scraping bushes going to my site and leaving. Unlike what others said, there was wifi at our site that was actually pretty good. Overall, this was a pleasant place to stay. The grounds were well maintained and very attractive. I would stay here again.

Park staff was very friendly, and the more permanent residents were also friendly and welcoming. Nice level sites, and they parked us to give us as much room as possible between rigs. The campground as a whole was very clean and well cared for. We do not have young children, so no problem for us, but there did not appear to be a kids playground. On the downside, the wifi was very slow. And the morning of our departure (admittedly a cold morning), we had power problems that tripped our inverter low voltage protection. Power could be an issue on very hot or very cold days when everyone is using a lot of current. Still, for us the pluses outweighed the minuses. We would stay here again.

The park was formerly a KOA and it shows. It also shows that the park was closed for 2 years. However, the new owner is working hard to upgrade things. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. I have seen the positive changes in this park in just the month between my first visit and this one (my second). It is currently a good overnight stop, very convenient to I-10, and soon it will also be a good destination. Good wifi. My first site was a bit more level than this one, but neither was particularly bad. I will be staying here again - and I look forward to watching this place blossom.

Like some others, I originally tried to stay at Oakes and Pines (the old name) but they never returned my call. I came here as a second choice this time, but it won't be second next time. Very friendly staff. They insist on using boards under your leveling jacks, but they even provide the boards for you to use. Fair enough. We got here in between rain showers, and although everything was wet (of course), it wasn't soggy. Wifi was slow but adequate. Overall, a good one night stay. We will stay here again the next time we are traveling on this part of I-10.
