After reading a previous evaluation we were a little apprehensive about camping here. There was a little league tourney going on in town so we took a chance. It was a good decision. Even though the owner is here for only a few hours each day he was very nice, friendly and very helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area. The park is right next to the Salmon river with easy in and out access to U.S. Highway 93. Wi-Fi reception was good with no dropping of signal. Grounds are well maintained. From our site #15, it was very easy to set up our satellite dish. Overall a nice park that we would stay in again. One caution: Water pressure is high so make sure you use a regulator!

An older well maintained park with large level pull through sites. Very family and pet friendly. Our site was gravel with a large grassy area, picnic table, BBQ stand and lots of afternoon shade. Staff very friendly and helpful. Park is located about 1/2 mile from the small town of Victor and is surrounded by fields. Very quiet in the evenings. One of the nicer parks we've been in over the last six weeks. It would be a destination the next time we are through this area.

A fairly new campground with large roomy sites. Located in the "wide open spaces" of Wyoming. Large grassy lawns with great views of the mountains. We only stayed the one night but would have stayed longer if not for a personal deadline. Very quiet even though only 50-75 yards off U.S. 191. Owners and staff work very hard to keep this park looking good. A real bargain. Nicest park within 100 miles to include Rock Springs.

Daily rate doesn't reflect that we paid for 6 days and the 7th was free. A clean older park that could use some sprucing up with new paint etc. Spaces are gravel, level and under large mature cottonwood and maple trees that provide great shade. Office is manned on and off with a self check-in procedure that is a little confusing. Free Wi-Fi reception is good. It appears that parts of the city have grown around the park since it was first built and it is now surrounded by a school, small mall and auto parts and tire stores. Served our purpose and we would stay here again.

This park is a large rough gravel/dirt parking lot that is dusty when it's hot and muddy when it rains. No shade or grass. Spaces fairly level. Free WiFi reception was good. Check in staff very friendly. We were parked about 20 yards from a large overloaded trash/garbage trailer. We will avoid this park in the future.

An older park with long big rig sites that are a bit on the narrow side. Lots of shade. Very quiet at night. WiFi (free) and cable TV reception both excellent. Laundry very clean and up to date. Excellent dog run area. Signage was a little confusing while moving to our site without an escort. While this park is clean it has a general rundown appearance. It was obvious that recent extended rain storms prevented attention to grass cutting but we were a little put off by mowing still going on at 8:00P.M. one evening. We would stay here again when passing through the area.

What a gem! Our space was a back in right next to a trout stream. Lots of grass and well maintained. We came for two days and stayed ten. Excellent WiFi at no extra charge. Staff very nice, friendly and seemed ready to bend over backwards to be helpful. Several ponds and streams through the park that are fishable (catch & release) with no license required. One of the nicer parks we've stayed in during our 11 years on the road.

Date of Stay:

Entry very appealing. Spaces level and large with lots of room. Utilities are set up so that units are back to back and you don't see your neighbors sewer hoses outside the your front door, a feature we very much liked. WiFi was all but non-existent, connections dropped after only a few seconds on line. The laundry we used was clean but very small with no seating or folding area. Two of three dryers we used required restarting as they ran to cool even on high setting.

Date of Stay:

Park is located in a ravine. Entry road is down a hill and is only slightly wider than one way. Two rigs coming and going could not pass each other. Site was tight, could not put all slides out. WiFi reception good but occasionally drops off. Lots of shade and quiet. Interior roads well maintained but narrow. Appears to have lots off full or long time residents. O.K. for short stay but when through this area again will look elsewhere.

A billboard about a few miles east of Nugget City says it provides full service. This conflicts with web site which says H2O & electric only. Didn't use web site as service was unavailable and didn't know there was no sewer hookups until after parked in space. Entry to park very rough with large potholes. Interior roads gravel but in good condition. Service at restaurant was very slow and expensive considering quality of meal. No bread or roll provided with supper meal. Asked for water and was told only bottled water was available and it cost extra. Cable TV reception good but limited in selection. Wi-Fi available in restaurant and office area for additional $10. Nice gift shop. Overall I felt this park was over priced and over rated.

Very nice friendly park with many tree shaded sites and good well water. Staff and owner very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area and local history. Many historical artifacts throughout the park related to the construction of the ALCAN in the 1940s. Evening campfire was a great place to meet and socialize with fellow travelers. Fishing in the Koidern River and Edith Creek was pretty good for Grayling. Didn't use laundry but restrooms and showers very clean. This park will be a destination the next time we are through the area.

What a pleasant surprise. This a fairly small and well maintained park that is under new ownership. Cleanliness of showers and restrooms are head and shoulders above average. Washers and dryers in good condition and work well. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV reception. Owners and staff very friendly and helpful. Awesome views of surrounding mountains. One of the nicer parks we've stayed in during our most recent trip through Canada and Alaska.

We were disappointed in this park. While it has a above average Good Sam rating, it appeared rough around the edges. Restroom stalls were painted a dark brown, almost black, color. Made it very hard to see. Laundry had several out of order machines. One quit while we were using it. Roads were very dusty. In fairness there has been a large influx of pipeline construction workers that, while nice people, their vehicles contribute to the excess dust and dirt in the park.

Date of Stay:

Was going to stop for just a night but ended up staying three days. Site was backed up to a large beaver pond. Very tranquil and restful. Pond had active beaver and muskrats along with migratory ducks. Seemed like we saw a different type of duck each day. Highlight was watching moose feed in the pond, as many as four at a time every early afternoon and some mornings. Nicest and most reasonable park we'd found in the last 3 weeks of traveling. Would definitely come back.

Date of Stay:

Park sits back from main road about 5-6 hundred yards. Northbound entry to park is tight but doable. Just North of park entry is a wide space for an easy turn around. Southbound entry easy. Entry is the only drawback to a park that was a pleasant surprise. Owners have put a lot of work into their facility and it shows. The lake is swimmable and abounds with turtles near the bank. Laundry was small, only two washers and dryers but not crowded. As full-timers we would stop here again when in the area.
