I gave it a 5 only because it has possibilities. This could be the prettiest park ever. Sites are small; huge trees are close together. I was there 8 days for a livestock show; the first 4 nights I was the only RV. I didn't fill very safe with all the foot traffic. There is a hedge with many openings to the apartment complex to the west. There were probably 10 people a day walking dogs and NONE cleaning up after them. I would not recommend pitching your tent in the dark! Everyone in town uses the dump station so there can be a line. Don't be surprised if someone on their lunch hour sits at your picnic table. Condoms on the ground. The only restroom I've ever seen with a sharps container. A convenience for diabetics? I don't think so. I'm not going back.

Date of Stay:

I stay here every time I'm in the area. Their long-time host can no longer work due to medical problems. They are going to a reservation only system; events, groups and regular guests. Call ahead. It is still very clean and trimmed. It is the best park in town (the State Fair and one other). Not sure if it is for sale but if I were younger, I would consider this as a possible business venture.

Date of Stay:

I've stayed here several times. This park has friendly folks: very helpful. Also has good WiFi.

Date of Stay:

Friendly folks in the office. Showed me to my site. I gave it a 6 because of the noise. It is next to the I-70 exit ramp; hear truck Jake brakes and downshifting all night. Also, there is a train somewhere. No other problems. WiFi is good.

Date of Stay:

I've stayed here 8 or 10 times, mostly in November. Eight days this time which is reflected by the weekly rate. The weather was excellent this trip. They have given up on grass; completely graveled with new paved streets. Not a destination but a good place to stay. I won't call them permanent but there seems to be more long term "campers". WiFi is always good.

Date of Stay:

I started to not rate this campground but there are travelers like me who might appreciate a heads-up. It is basically for permanent seasonal users. Decks, fences and vegetable gardens take them out of the camper category. They can mow the grass and clear the brush but this is still a river bottom with humidity and mosquitoes. There is no satellite (trees) and no phone signal. A boring stay indoors. I gave it a neutral rating because of the hosts' attitude. They think if you have a router signal, you are connected to the internet. The largest font size on their website is WiFi. No internet on Monday. Host said it would be up shortly. Not to be. Monday, a week later, still no internet. Call it free if you want but if it is included, I'm paying for it. That is like saying "sorry, we are out of water." Maybe this is a wilderness experience for some but I can think of a lot places that are not shared by 1000 others. Again, some may like it but I won't be back.

Friendly hosts. Neat, clean park that has gravel roads and pads. Has picnic tables. There is a lot of highway noise but not enough to disturb my sleep. Every space was taken in my area. CAUTION: They have 85 psi of water pressure. Pressure regulator highly recommended unless you are just filling your tank.

See my June 2009 and June 2008 reviews. Enough said. I'm back.

Date of Stay:

This is a new park with riendly hosts. They just had torrential rains but the roads were in good shape.

Date of Stay:

I stayed here 3 days. Park has very friendly hosts and it's clean.

Date of Stay:

This is my 6th stay here. Look at my previous reports. Beautiful weather his time for a change. They have repaved all the streets. Park looks great. Price reflects weekly rate.

Date of Stay:

What everyone else has said plus...Watch out for the bear! Don't leave anything out especially small dogs. Don't miss the Boardwalk Restaurant. White tablecloth first class dining. Great food. Closed Thursdays. One block west. I'll be back when I have more time.

Date of Stay:

The rate is after the Value Kard discount. Hosts were very friendly. This IS the desert folks. I would cost a fortune to keep more than a little grass green. They were constantly watering while I was there. All though there were a lot of families, kid noise was confined to the pool area. Wifi worked great. Slot was as level as most. I didn't have to unhook. Coffee is on any time. Continental breakfast from 8 to 10 am. Store is small but has necessaties. I will return.

Date of Stay:

This is a converted mobile home park; nicely done. There are still sidewalks and curbs visible. There are concrete tow vehicle parking pads. Check-in couldn't have been easier. The young girl previously mentioned, ran down and guided me in. She was very helpful when asked about local services. Pull-throughs are a misnomer. You can pull through if there is no one in the space behind you. I doubt the 100 spaces quoted. Very clean. The grass is mowed. Walking distance to historic Fort Bridger, a state park. Suggested if you are a history buff. The museum has a good selection of mountain man era books. Wifi worked great. If back this way, will definitely stop in again.

Parts of it are a mess. They are rebuilding the streets. Major work, big equipment. Detours. There was a fellow in a truck with "www.KOA" in big letters on the side. He told me there was major renovation going on. I'm not sure, but I assume he was perhaps an inspector. The trailer park section is pretty seedy. A privacy fence to block the view would cure this complaint. I was near the office and Wi-Fi was good. Kind of a squirrelly way to connect though. As others have said, nothing to write home about but I will be back. It is the only game in town. It looks as though they are trying to improve things. New owners, perhaps.
