About rwarner22

Full timers since May 2009. We live in our 40' 2007 Tiffin Allegro Bus. We have stayed in a lot of military campgrounds and a good number of commercial ones. Our budget calls for $25 / night and we have averaged $21.63.

Not very impressive with this campground. I expected more. Staff was not very hospitable -- they were there to get me checked in and take my money. Not too welcoming. Not a big deal but it is an important part of making a the first impression. Campground had been rained on for a week and grass needed mowing, some sites needed to be regraveled and more work to do where water washed away some of the gravel road. It was very hot and humid so I am sure that prevented more work being done. Campsites were close together. Got an open site so satellite access was good for TV reception. Showers and restrooms were very good. Large gift shop and upstairs coffee bar/reading area in the office was nice. Probably would not stay here again. We camped in a 40' motorhome.

Overall I thought this place was a little pricey, but not as high cost as some of the campgrounds we have been to in the last 3 months. I realize it is high season so prices are high. The campground it self is great. Congrete pads, and well maintained campground. I like the open skies which mean we got good TV reception. The wifi was non-existent. The casino is typcial which we find a bit depressing. The stop is fine for an overnight stay. Not sure we'd spend the money to stay here again.

Adequately maintained campground. We stayed two nights and were not looking for anything great. Looks like the campground is doing just enough to make it OK. No upgrades, no energy or real hospitality from the staff - just taking care of things to run a business. Not trying too hard to make you feel welcome. Campground was OK. Think we'll try another one in the area next time.

Great overnight stay on our way to Branson. Small park that is very well taken care of. Very friendly and helpful staff. Campsites are gravel and level. Internet very good (how many campgrounds can say that??). We stayed here on our way to Branson and glad we did. We camped in a 40' motorhome and would do it again.

Hard campground to rate. In a word: Fair. Not a whole lot to chose from near Estes Park and Rocky Mountain NP without driving up the mountain. First the positives: Good location, friendly staff, nice pavilion with grass area, entertainment on Friday night which was a nice touch, site on the river, was able to get satellite TV (site 17) but most sites covered with trees. Now the negative: really dusty road, weak water pressure (and the reason the other restrooms and bathhouse at the other end is not open, sites more of a parking lot type versus campsite. Looks like they have been working hard since the 2013 floods but have a long way to go. Washers/dryers good. Looks like place has a lot of help but they don't seem to be doing much. Sites close to each other and neighbor had to break a branch to open his slide. Way too many permanent residents in what looks like the slums -- old RVs and trailers and poorly maintained sites not conducive to a good looking campground. Only get once to make a first impression and we would not stay here again.

Decent campground, nothing really noteworthy. Gravel all throughout, level sites. WiFi decent, laundry good. Small store, small office. Small pool. Easy access off I-70

Lot of upgrades underway. I liked the gravel all over. Sites were spacious. WiFi was excellent. In this day and age they figured it out at a pretty large campground. Impressive. Price was not and the major reason I downgraded my rating. Great location to lots of trails and not far from town. Very convenient. Pool was under repair during 100+ degree weather - another reason for the downgrade. Laundry was great. Ask for the front row. We like our spot on the end. Seemed like we were out in the country with that view. Arches in the distance are great.

Office staff fine. Wi-Fi OK most of the time, which is pretty good at campgrounds these days. My Verizon MiFi did not work here. AT&T phone service worked pretty well. View was very nice from site #11. Price was good during high summer season. Very close to Capitol Reef National Monument. Lots of detractors, though that are fairly easy I would think to solve: site not level, trees not trimmed, place looks a little dumpy with clutter on the front porch and in the office area, entry into the place is dirt and gravel with lots of potholes. Satellite worked because we moved a little forward in our site. Barely enough room for car. Looks like they are clearing an area. Don't think I'd return to this one.

This is our type of place. Family owned, quaint older motel/campground built in the 1950's. But it has been updated and is in great shape. Grass mowed and vegetable garden looking good. Fresh coat of paint on the bath house and in-progress on the motel. Gravel throughout and level sites. Large trees but we were able to move forward in site #6 enough to get DirecTV on our top mounted satellite. The whole grounds have a family type of feeling. Have two groups in here now that are camping together. Love the price, love the location to the National Parks and would come here again. Though a bit tight for our big rig, we'd still come back and stay here. Bathrooms and showers are clean and neat.

Campground was OK for a few days to see Lake Powell and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We didn't use the inside pool. The laundry had plenty of washers and dryers and was reasonable. Wi-Fi and Internet on MiFi worked fine. We might stay here again since we had no issues. But think we'd really like the campground at Lake Powell.

Great campground. Though pricey, it was worth every penny. Site was level and no issues with Wifi, or satellite TV. View was great. Campground, office, store and pool was immaculate. Grounds were very well maintained. Place had lots of personality and accommodated campers in RVs, TeePees, cabins. Some longer term folks on one side but very orderly and neat. Got firewood delivered to site and had a couple nice campfires overlooking the mesa and valley below. We don't like to spend that much on a campground usually but this was worth every penny.

Date of Stay:

Good park. Great location for touring Monument Valley. Site was level and I like the fact the maintenance folks were out and working on the grounds. Everything was fine. We picked up the tour right at the campground office. Office staff was friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi on the grounds was limited. My MiFi worked fine. I downgraded this a bit because the choices are limited and the prices are high. But we'd still come back again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in the newer gravel area again. Plenty of room and all sites are level. Love the gravel which is nice when it rains. Great location from I-40.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground but too many detractors for us to return. First the cost: $35 was a little high but with the $5 entry fee - $40 was too much. No Wi-Fi or telephone service so we had to go into town which was 13 miles away to connect. Our satellite worked fine for TV. The steep 10% grade into the campsite was no problem for our 40' motorhome. The campsite itself was nice with water and electric. The dump station nearby was also very nice. Our hike into one of the many trails was excellent as was the scenery. Loved the howls of the coyotes at night and the wild turkeys and birds. And the Visitor Center was very good with displays and a Civilian Conservation Corps area which I enjoyed. It was a very beautiful place but we will not return to camp but find a different campground.

Like this RV park. Our third visit over the years and still very nice. We got a site near the fountains and enjoyed being near everything. Used the laundry and noticed the office has a little snack bar that delivers pizza! Nice sized gift shop/store with great facilities and pool. Expanded one side of the building and added a salon and another laundry room. Easy access off the highway. We'll be back!
