I have reviewed this campground previously, but feel compelled to again leave a review, for the purpose of letting others know that this RV park continues to be "at the top of its game". I have never encountered owners/operators of an RV park that care more and work harder at keeping their facility in top notch condition. We have camped here a few times each year for the past few years, and each time we go back, I notice something else that they have done, as far as installing something new or improving something existing. I have always enjoyed myself at Mitchell RV Resort, and really do appreciate that Doris and Kevin go out of their way to make sure that everything is as good as it can be, and that everyone is enjoying themselves. I give them major credit for being willing to try new events, and for working so hard to put on the many events that they hold throughout the year. I just love that this place has "something for everyone." The atmosphere feels as "laid back" and safe as any campground I have ever stayed in. I said in a previous review that they have the best wifi of any RV park I have been in, and that still holds true. The number of "networks available" is enough that they don't all fit on one screen when "searching for a network to connect to". There is just so much to like about Mitchell RV Resort, and I always look forward to going back. This review is "glowingly-positive", I know that. I don't work there, and am not affiliated with them at all. I just really like to "get the word out" to fellow campers when I come across such a top notch campground.

This is a decent campground to stay in. Of the 12 sites, the outer 4 "pull through" sites are the longest. The 7 pull throughs and 1 back-in in the middle rows are of various length. A couple sites might be long enough to stay hooked up, but the rest would require disconnecting the truck or car. I believe all of the sites would require leveling, as none of them appeared level to me. The gravel roads and sites were in good condition. There was a paved patio with picnic table at our site, as well as a fire ring. Water pressure was fine. 30 amp receptacle at the box was dirty, preventing a good connection, so we had to plug into 50 amp instead using an adapter. No dump station on site is a bummer, but there is a dump station on the other side of town at the Fairgrounds that is available. This park was quiet and peaceful, with nice scenery. $14 cash fee was placed into a drop box. 9 of the 12 sites were occupied during our stay on a Friday night.

We arrived late at night. Our reservation packet was waiting in the after hours box, and I observed that they also had a board for available sites for those arriving without a reservation. My first thought when I saw our site was, "There's no way that entire area is one site?" Yep, it was. The pull through sites near the dog run area are the widest/roomiest sites I have seen in a campground. Very long, and very wide. The two rows of pull throughs face each other, with RVs pointed at each other. To exit, you just pull forward and turn out, driving through the middle lane. I imagine some people have been confused by this, as the middle lane is just dirt/grass, as opposed to clearly being a "road". Entering the site was weird, as you have to go up over a curb. I liked this park just fine, but it was a bit unusual. The sites themselves were gravel, with cement pads behind your RV, at the rear of the site next to the curb. I guess that is intended to park your tow vehicle or other car on, if you are staying there long term? I really don't know... It almost seemed like perhaps things used to be laid out in a different manner. At any rate, lots of room to maneuver and spread out. The sewer was too far forward in our site, so much so that I did not even hook up to it. I did notice that other sites had the sewer placed further back, as it should be. The two dog run areas were large, but the grass was badly in need of mowing. The office and store were nice, and the indoor pool looked nice. There is a huge lawn and covered patio behind the office building that would be great for a picnic or play area if you were there with a large group. All utilities worked fine. Did not use cable TV. Windy as heck the night we were there. The park was safe, check in/out was easy. I would stay here again if passing through Amarillo.

Super nice place. We stayed only one night passing through, and were very tempted to stay longer, and would have if not for prior commitments. I have not stayed in an RV park as nice overall as Tiger Run. Beautiful scenery, beautiful sites, tons of amenities, etc. We so badly wish that we could have stayed longer, as we didn't really even explore the park, clubhouse, etc. Our site was not perfectly level, but leveling up wasn't difficult. The grass was in great shape, as well as all of the landscaping throughout the park. The office staff were nice. As an owner park, there are certainly a higher percentage of people firmly in place, as opposed to frequent turnover of sites each morning. There were some high dollar rigs in this park, as well as many nice-looking cabins. I didn't see anything at all in this park that would detract from the rating. The price is high, yes. But for what it is, and where it is, that is "the going rate". We would return to this park and spend as much time as we could in the future, gladly. Tiger Run is in my top 2 of RV parks visited in my travels, mainly because of how picturesque it is.

I really liked this park. We pulled in after the office was closed, and found the after hours check in board to be informative and helpful. The pull through site we were in was very nice. Level, with gravel that was smooth and easy to walk on. Short fences separated the sites, and the site had a decent sized grass patch next to the cement patio, which we always seek out for the dogs. Utilities were fairly well placed, with only the fresh water hookup being a bit odd as it is a few feet over into your neighbors' site, but no big deal, just need a moderate length of hose. We did not use the wifi or facilities, so I cannot comment on those. A park attendant was very pleasant and helpful on the morning of our departure. He filled a propane tank for me and brought it right back to the nose of our trailer on his golf cart, when he could have just as easily said, "here you go", and let me carry it back myself. He also asked if running the sprinklers for a few minutes on the grass area in our site would be any problem; I noticed that he has to go up and down the rows and manually turn on/off the sprinklers for each site. I thought it was not only considerate of him to ask, but also something that you certainly wouldn't see at most parks (a lot of places seem to just run the sprinklers on a timer with no regard for whether the water would be interfering with someone getting ready to leave, etc). I wish I would have asked the man for his name, as he deserves recognition for a job well done in assisting guests. All in all, this park felt really safe, and was a fun place to stay. I enjoyed it enough that I will likely make it a point to pass through Grand Junction again to stay for at least a night on a future trip.

We stayed one night when passing through the area. This park has a lot of full timers. Front office staff was helpful in responding to my request to change sites after our initial site was a few feet from the dreaded "chained up, barking dog". The park is neat and clean overall, the sites are level, and utilities well placed. We found Elko to be a nice looking town (certainly the cleanest looking town across I-80 in northern NV), and we would return to Iron Horse again without question if passing through the area.

We arrived late at night (early morning actually), and I am always pleased to find "some type" of after-hours procedure at a park. Information was well posted and easy to understand, as far as available sites and how to get to them. Park host came around shortly after we pulled in, to check up and see if we needed wifi code, etc. Very few parks have someone patrolling about at 1:00 in the morning; I appreciated the fact that he swung by to see if everything was suitable. We did not use wifi, cable, pool, etc, as we just slept for the night and then departed in the morning. Pull through site was level and easy to get into, all utilities worked well and were well placed. Park is in nice shape. I would certainly return if in the area again.

We have stayed here once previously, several years ago. The park still looks great. We were only there for a brief stopover this time, so we did not use wifi, cable, or any of the office amenities or food service. I like that Oasis is easy to get to off of I-40, and the fact that a Love's is just up the road. The park is safe and clean. The only thing I noticed about our particular spot this time around is that the sewer hookups are way too far forward in the sites (I have not read back through previous reviews, but I suspect that is a common complaint). If you disconnect and put the trailer all the way forward in the site and park the truck behind that, it would work OK (if staying for awhile). However, for an overnight stop, wanting to stay connected, it requires pulling out into the road and blocking the lane in order to be able to dump the tanks (or I guess you could use 40' or so of sewer hose extensions....). At any rate, minor sticking point, and certainly will not deter us from returning to Oasis in the future.

Previous reviews have summed up this place nicely. We stayed in the newer section near the convenient store. Signing up for the Q card was not a problem, even with our arrival being 5:00 AM. A walk to the rear of the casino, and about 2 minutes spent at the desk, and I had the card. Then drove back over to the convenient store, and they had my name written down in the book quickly and we were free to pick a site. The cost for nights "after the free night(s)" is now $35. We stayed just the one free night, and appreciated it greatly. The park has a very safe feel to it, and we didn't find the noise to be too bad at all. The park had only a few RVs in it during our time there. The spots over by the casino were much more full. This is a great place to stop for the night, it beats running the generator in a Walmart lot for sure. We made sure to gas up at the store, and went and got something to eat in the casino (and left $20 behind in the slot machines) as a way to say thanks for the free night stay. We plan to return fairly often, as this location is right on our most frequently traveled route. Water pressure was 100 psi, and both the water and electricity were well placed and easy to hook up to. The sites are very wide, and plenty long.

This park now has cable TV. I didn't see it advertised on their website, however it is indeed in place. 45-50 channels; we were very happy to find this. They have also added some lights throughout the park, and are said to be adding more. The lights are a welcome addition as it was quite dark in the park previously. We found everything to be in fine shape during this visit. We did not use the wifi so I cannot rate that. We enjoy staying at this park, it is quiet and peaceful.

Our favorite RV park, hands down. The park is so well laid out, and maintenence/upkeep is great. Sites are long and have plenty of room. Roads are in excellent shape, as is everything at this park. Cable TV was above average, very clear picture. I did not attempt to connect to the wifi. Water pressure 60 psi. Staff was pleasant. Many high dollar motorhomes in this park. This is one of the few places I would consider full timing in some day.

This is a real nice RV park. Great pool area. Restrooms were very nice and clean, and there are numerous restroom facilites throughout the park. Layout of the park is nice. Sites are gravel, and level. Grass was in good shape and well kept. Water pressure seemed pretty low. Didn't use wifi much, but it did connect fast initially. Park mgmt was friendly. The park has a nice, quiet feel to it, although this was helped by the fact that it wasn't very busy. We look forward to returning.

Nice resort. Restaurant on site was good. Store is well stocked. Wi-Fi worked well. Cable TV was decent. Utilities were fine. Resort is in good condition. Site has a nice concrete patio with picnic table. Pool area is really nice. Park was not full over the 4th of July weekend. Tons of motorcycles on site, operating "mostly" respectfully from a noise standpoint. The gravel areas could use some weed control, dogs picked up some grass burs in our site. Resort employees were nice.

Date of Stay:

This is a nice campground. Owners are really nice, and have put a ton of time and effort into this park. Best wifi I have seen yet in an RV park. Cable TV had about 25 channels, decent. Excellent pool area with 4 pools that don't seem "right on top of each other", given how the area is laid out. Adult pool is great. Site was gravel and fairly level, roads are in good shape. Power was good, water pressure acceptable. No complaints about this park, we look forward to returning.
