We have stayed here several times before, so it was interesting to see the changes. The park looks first class. Like most in this area, there are no trees just full sun, but the pads and the power pedestals look new (even though I know they aren't). There are several Jellystone themed areas and, when weather permits, a nice pool. There are just two downsides here. It is located on a frontage road, so to reach it when you are headed north on 287 you have to go past, go up to the next exit, and then come back down. If you are leaving here southbound, you have to make a similar detour. Since that next exit is only 1 mile north, it is not that big a deal, just something to be aware of. The other big disadvantage is they have Tengo Internet, which is synonymous with PPP (painfully poor performance). The internet is free, but it is worth what it costs. I just my Verizon data card most of the time because Tengo just isn't worth the trouble. But the park is nice and a good place to be either as a destination or as a place to plan visits to Wichita Falls.

The owners live on site and they are working constantly to make sure the park is satisfactory. All of the sites are dirt, with a little grass between sites, so it can get a bit dusty in dry times and a bit muddy when it rains. Other parks in the area are similar or worse, so that is not a down side. Wifi here is now excellent, thanks to the owners' persistence. The park is very convenient to most things in Abilene - 20 minutes or less drive - and it is in a safe area, very convenient to I-20. We are staying here for several weeks, and if I am back in Abilene I'll be back here again.

This is a great place for an overnight stop. The owners are on property and are exceptionally hospitable. This is a fairly new park; some of the growing pains show. Yet the loving care of the owners shows as well. The roads and the sites are all hard-packed sand, but that should not be a problem. The jacks on my 28,000 pound motorhome went in about 3/8 inch, and that after several hard rains. You do need to drive slowly; the roads are a little bumpy, but not bad at all. All of the utilities worked well. The wifi is exceptional; this is the best we have found in an RV park outside of Disney, and they don't charge Disney prices. It is very convenient to I-10 and to US231. While I-10 was clearly visible from our site, the road noise inside our motorhome was not a problem. Even outside we could carry on a conversation in a normal tone of voice. This was our first time here. I suspect it will not be our last, and I expect that I will see continued improvement each time I stop.

The good news: they honor Passport America with no limit on the length of stay. The park looked well maintained. The bad news: the interior roads are very tight for a motorhome. For units on the north end of the camp, you will get sewer smell from what appears to be an open cesspool if the wind is right. The sites are so short you can't park your car with your motorhome. We had to literally park across the road from our motorhome. There is grass between sites, but the sites are so close together we could literally hear people talking in the next rig inside their travel trailer with all of their doors and windows closed. The big down was the wifi. It was beyond question the worst I have ever experienced at a park. When I complained to the staff, their initial response was "it's just kids streaming video and we can't help it." When I tried to explain that would not cause the problem I was experiencing, they basically just said they didn't want to be bothered. I even offered a potential solution, but they didn't want to hear it. It was that attitude, as much as the abysmal wifi, that really turned me off. Most Passport parks I have stayed in have been great. This one is an exception.

Even though the park was in town, it felt more relaxed and welcoming. There was a nice grass area in between sites, and there was more room to relax outside than in many parks we visited out west. The laundry room was very nice and the swimming pool was very welcoming. Wifi was slow, but it usually worked. This was a nice place and I would not hesitate to come back here.

The office staff were very friendly. I had several special needs and they did their best to accommodate us. I appreciated that. Though it was too cool for our tastes to try to use the pool, it did look nice and clean and we could tell that the hardy souls braving water and cool air temps were enjoying it. The sites were adequate. Our pull through barely had enough room for our motorhome plus our tow vehicle. And the site was narrow - I had to move some timbers to be able to turn into the site as we were entering. The down side was that the wifi was pretty poor. It was usable but just barely. The plus side is that this is a very convenient location to Glacier National Park - both entrances.

This is on a working ranch. The staff was very friendly and did their best to answer my questions about the area. It is about 3 miles from the Interstate exit, but most of that you are paralleling the Interstate on a good 2 lane road. There is about 1/2 mile of gravel road to get to the ranch, and all roads (and sites) are gravel, but this is very do-able if you just slow down. The campground is very hilly, but the sites are mostly level. It is pretty basic, but still very nice and the work-campers do their best to keep it nice.

The park is very much in town and feels crowded both inside and in the surrounding area. The sites were very short. It was possible to park (our tow vehicle) on the site only by parking parallel to the road. Most campers had to do that, so the roads, while adequate even for a motorhome, felt tight. Basically, this is a big parking lot with hookups, but it is convenient to see Cody, and that is definitely worth doing. The wifi worked but only intermittently.

Very convenient to the Interstate, though the driving directions may not be very clear. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were quite a few trains passing by; I like trains, so that was no problem for me, but if you don't like trains it could be trouble. The park seemed to be in the middle of getting ready for the season, so there was work to be done. There were several campers who appeared to be permanent residents, but they kept their sites nice for the most part. Overall, this was a fine place to stop for the night.

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.
