I think our price included a a premium for being here during a BIG car show. They have a late check-in time but they accommodated us because our site was empty - just be aware of the check-in time. Very convenient location to Lake George Village and the many Outlets in the other direction. Our site was spacious, but cannot say anything about the rest of the campground because we were near the entrance. We had our neighbors gazebo about a foot away from our driver-side slide, but fortunately no one was there. Other sites we saw near us were pretty nice, but not private. Wifi was very hard to get logged into. It often took us 15-30 minutes to connect and then it was often very slow. Cable TV was good.

The staff was extremely helpful. The campground was clean and very nice. The Internet WiFi was good, but you are limited to 2 devices. The cable TV was good. Our price reflects having the only "premium" site, parked broad side to the stream. Included paver patio, gas grill, real table and chairs, newspaper, firewood, green grass front lawn. Nicest site we have had in a long time. There was very little "not to like". We were a little disappointed that the mountain stream was not deep enough to use our kayak - however the scenery was so nice we didn't really care.

Good points: Nice size sites. Woodsy. Most have good privacy. Ours was carved out of a hill and required extra wood planks for the levelers to get level. Very nice staff. Cable TV worked well with lots of stations, but very few HD channels. Bad points: WiFi only works very close to office. No WiFi at our site and Verizon wasnt reliable. We travel for months at a time and since we have to take care of our affairs over the Internet and research future destinations, I never give high ratings to campgrounds with sub standard WiFi. Roads are VERY narrow, overgrown in areas, very dusty, and areas with ruts. Your vehicles will be very dusty. Sandy RV parking area - levelers sunk into sand overnight. Unlevel- required wood planks under levelers. Other campgrounds more convenient to attractions. Nothing much nearby. Typically traveled 20-25 miles to see attractions in White Mountains. If none of my issues are important to you, it really is a nice campground; I enjoyed it except for above issues. We have a 40' motorhome and stayed 4 nights. I would prefer to not stay longer than 2 nights due to WiFi. Our site 168 had really unpleasent afternoon sun and we did not want to be outside until after 6:30.

Very helpful front desk, provided info for touring Boston via subway and location of local restaurants and shopping. Very nice spacious site. Great Grocery not far away. Friendly, helpful employees.

Beautiful Campground. Borders the river, a very short walk. Wide, level Sites. Cable TV. Relatively fast Wi-Fi. Close to Kalispell for shopping, yet quiet. Most sites have some shade, but you can still use satellite if you don't want to use their cable. Got disconnected from Wi-Fi about 4-5 times in 24 hours, but it was still usable. Why cannot campgrounds get good dependable Wi-Fi?

Date of Stay:

Foresty, some or most sites private. No Verizon cell phone service. No TV, no cable, no antenna TV, satellite would not work due to trees. Wi-Fi was a lie. 10 minutes to load a web page - but usually Wi-Fi would be disconnected first. Never could use it in spite of very strong signal. Over 20 miles, maybe 24, to entrance to West Glacier Park. Much better to stay on the other side of West Glacier Entrance. There are a lot of campgrounds there that are closer and probably nicer. We had busy train tracks about 60' in front of our windshield and lots of traffic noise from the rear. The pull-through that they were going to put us into would be impossible to level the motorhome, so we were able to switch to the next-door back-in. This was OK, but tight. It seemed like a lot of the sites had a problem with being level. We suggest selecting a campground on the the other side (toward Whitefish or Kalispell) of West Glacier Entrance. Oh, and for some stupid reason, they set up red traffic cones across the entrance. So, when you came home in the evening, you had to get out of the car and move the cones so you could get back to your RV.

Good Points: Wide Sites with grass - nice! Bar-b-que every night and breakfast every morning which we enjoyed. Good views. Friendly & intermitantly helpful staff. Bad points: Price. No TV - no antenna TV and no cable. Wi-Fi Very slow during 4 day stay. Most sewer hookups are at very back of site. We had a 12-15' mostly uphill run for our sewer hookup. We had a significant drop-off at rear of our pull-through, resulting in our metal framed rockguard getting crushed when we leveled the coach. I called the office to get a more level site, but they basically said that it would be too complicated to move me. I had to pull very far forward in the site making no good place to park the car without it sticking out into the road. In general, it is a very nice campground. However, for the price (highest price since we left Florida), I expect some sort of TV, moderately fast Wi-Fi, better located sewer hookups, sites that are level enough to not crush my rock guard, and not running the sewer uphill for 12-15'. Had it not been for these issues, I would have given them a 9 or 10.

This is a really nice park, very well maintained, and one of the closest big rig campgrounds to Helen. It is wooded and shady. The owners are very friendly and give lots of helpful suggestions. We had a dead car battery so they gave us a jump start and let us use their phone for calling autoparts stores on Labor Day. I would have given them a 10, but our particular site 15 has a hill on the side, which made access to our hatches and the hookups awkward.

We camped here the day after Labor Day, so lots of sites were available. The 10 rating is comparable to other state parks, not private parks which have more amenities but much less ambiance and space. (We first drove through Pa-Co-Chu-Pulk because it had full hookups. It was very barren and we did not like the ambiance.) Moved 4 miles down the road to Dutch Charlie. Their web site said that the Elk Ridge area was the most popular, so that is where we requested. The front gate discouraged us due to the size of our 40' motorhome, but we found lots of sites that fit us. We selected D99 pull-through loop. This campground has nice ambiance with trees, but most sites do not have trees that interfere with satellite. The Elk Ridge area is elevated and Verizon worked very well here and provided us with good Internet. They have 30 amp electric and "shared water." There is a water faucet about every other site, so pick one and fill your tank. We found it to have very private sites with lots of room, picturesque, good roads and level sites, nice picnic tables and convenient to local things to do. Some sites have lake view. We would definitely come here again.

Positives: One of few campgrounds in Laramie. Close to freeway. Three truck stops within spitting distance. Cable TV works good and has HD stations. They have Internet, but see below. Negatives: Freeway is next to campground, so it is noisy. Most sites are VERY NARROW and short. The first site we were given was so narrow that we could not get our driver's side slides out and the passenger's side was just a couple feet from the neighbors power pole. Our picnic table was at the very front of the motorhome and I had less than a foot to squeeze out between the table and my front door, with no room to move it away. They moved us to another site which was wider, but still short. Our neighbor's big Prevost (with trailer attached) stuck almost half way across the street. Unfortunately, I am on the wrong side of him and it could be difficult to get out of this "pull through". Ambiance is poor. Sites look uncared for. Their Internet acts really strange when getting connected (it wants to take control of your computer and I have fears that it won't relinquish control when I leave) and does not work very well. My wife's computer couldn't get on, even after it took control). I got on, but then AOL would not work even after I finally got connected through Internet Explorer. As others mentioned, there are nasty speed bumps coming in. They really need to get rid of those.

Nice Campground which is well cared taken care of. People were very nice. Decent size sites, maybe just slightly larger than most KOA's. All sites had paved pads. Green (watered) grass between all sites was a welcome site after being up in Estes Park, which was very dry and dusty. Internet worked fairly well, but did notice slow down sometimes. Cable had only 13 channels - no HD. We were there during a big stock market crash and would have really liked to watch CNBC, but no such luck. It is farther from town than I expected, but probably the closest campground to town. Overall, we enjoyed the campground.
