Always a bargain to camp here, don't expect anything more then a slab, power, sewer and some freeway noise. I review this park once a year and always seem to come up with some more helpful hints that my fellow campers may or may not be aware of. Something that I noticed this year or maybe I noticed in the past but it dawned on me this year, when you ask for a long pull through they automatically charge you $19 versus the 17. pretty much all the pull through's are long pull through's but if you don't mention you need a long pull thru then you only pay 17. I'm always too long to try this theory out but I figure the extra two bucks is worth having what they call a longer pull through. The laundry mat is clean very reasonable and is usually a stopover place to catch up on our laundry. I will continue to stop here as long as things stay somewhat the same it is tight parking but I'm usually only here for a day or two so it doesn't really matter. Enjoy!!

First of all let me say I like this campground. We usually stop by here two days heading home from a trip. But I must say their check in, while it appears to be simple, can become very convoluted. First of all you check-in at the hotel basement area. The gentleman at the counter has no idea what an RV is and could possibly not know what the RV park is but does not want to let you in until 3 o'clock until it's been cleaned (kind of like a hotel room) so you proceed to explain to him that there's no cleanup and if there is we got a bigger problem than me parking there. We might have to call hazmat (A California term may not even be available in Nevada), but anyway after I explain to him how RVs leave somewhat early and that sites might be available, then he concedes that yes if your spot is available you can park there, very frustrating when you're dealing with people that are not familiar with the RV lifestyle. We did finally get in and during all the confusion we forgot to show them our Good Sam discount card and did not get the discount and actually laughed and discovered it after we got down the road, did not dare try to call back and explain the situation; just said you know what that's the way it goes. We've stayed at this park several times over the years and always been pleased with how well kept up It is, it is tight maneuvering through the park so better to unhook out in the parking lot save yourself some grief and possibly a marriage!! But overall we will continue to stay there. Just enjoy the ride and don't sweat the minor stuff; it's a good place to camp.

Always a very nice park to stay at. We have stayed in this park over the years and never been disappointed. We always get the spot down by the par three by the turn. It's like looking at a park setting with the mountains in the background. This park has maintained its excellence over the years. We usually come early in the year or late. Never crowded, never have trouble getting into our usual spot. All the facilities work excellent. The cable is excellent. The laundromat is very clean, the clubhouse is superb. There is a lot of seasonal people that leave there rigs here. They head South for the winter. A lot owner owned spots. The thing I might caution you on is if you go to Spokane late in the evening be very cautious about the deer crossing the highway. This is always one of my main concerns and I hopefully I never get to experience it. Happy camping safe travels and enjoy the park.

Nice park we have stayed here the last eight years on pretty much a monthly basis, with that being said the daily rate even with electricity comes out right around $20 a night I think that is a fair price for this park. The daily rate they charge forget it, The weekly rate they charge still too high but the monthly seems to work out just about right for me. I would like to see this park use a little more TLC I think things are getting a little rundown, really need some upkeep but everything still looks presentable. As far as the rocks that surround the grassy areas on turns be careful, every day I see them realigned from somebody taking the corner too sharp or not paying attention and going too fast, remember this is not a first come first serve park; you check in and your site's assigned so you really can relax from that point on you just got off I-90 no more obstacles so it's easy if you keep that in mind. The park is very convenient to a lot of things going on, on the Idaho Washington northern border. We stay more on the northern side of the park so therefore freeway traffic is not really a noise issue, I don't anticipate the Greensferry I-90 overpass as being a real issue either that should be done spring of 2016. The management and office people are very helpful friendly and nice. Enjoy the park and the surrounding areas we camp here in the motorhome.

This campground is basically here to use Silverwood(theme park). It is a weekend warrior get away to utilize the theme park. The amenities here is basically the theme park we did have full hookups 30 amp, water, sewer. The rules that they give you to abide by or basically nonexistent for the people that camp inside the park. I seen fire rings with wood being burned that's a no-no. I seen up to four vehicles parked in a space with at least 15 to 20 people that's a no-no. I'm not sure what the campground host responsibility is, but from what I could tell they were nonexistent. Look if your young family you want to go to the theme park you will love this place kids running everywhere you can throw rocks, football baseball whatever you want and not have to worry about hitting or not hitting something, now if you're used to rules and people abiding by rules and some type of orderly conduct and parking don't come here, you will be disappointed. We were here for a two day event at the theme park so we made the best of it but I will probably not come back.

This is basically a trailer park with a proximally six spots throughout the park that are open for overnighters, three of them are right when you drive-in, one pull thru is by the office and there is a couple of backends somewhere. The park was quiet even though we were right by Highway 12. The price reflects a one-week stay +2 extra nights at Good Sam discount. There is a certain smell that comes through the park in fact the whole area either from the pulp plant or something that has almost a propane smell. We've stayed in the Lewiston Clarkston area and I've always stayed at the state park this time because of our size we had to get a RV park that accommodated our length. In all fairness to this park I would probably stay here again but I really did not feel like a part of this park because of our short-term stay and this happens sometimes when you pull into a more permanent full timers park. The laundry mat was clean and the office was accommodating.

This park offers a one night Sunday through Thursday Passport America discount, since we arrived on Friday we used our Good Sam discount for Friday and Saturday we said we would like to use our passport discount for Sunday and they refused it. I'm not sure if the management here understands what it means to except these club cards but that is the sole reason we pick this campground, when they refused to except the PA card for one night even though it says they except it then we refused to stay here on Sunday night. Keep in mind these cards were not combined it was either one or the other for the nights that we stayed here so out of principle I chose to move on on Sunday and not patronize this park. This park has a lot to offer very clean, management is nice has great views of the river but refuses to except the cards that brings the people to this park they were only half full it wasn't a issue of we don't have room. Next time we're in the area I will call ahead instead of pulling in to see if their policy remains the same if it does then we will continue on our journey and not stop.

Old campground, inner part is nice enough, but they gave us a spot on the outer edge where two fifth wheels and one motorhome about took our mirrors off, so I insisted that they move us and they did right in the middle of the old rundown trailer park. Look I can drive 5 miles across town where I live and sleep in an old rundown trailer park it doesn't make sense to drive 1150 miles to sleep in one. At least we weren't getting almost ran into so I said this will do for couple of days. The laundry mat was very clean. Overall the entrance to this park if you can stay there with your RV or trailer that would be first choice, if not you definitely would not like where we had to stay especially if you had young kids just my honest opinion. I will more than likely opt not to stay here next time.

Don't expect much, but it's dry, semi dusty, because people don't slow down place to park. The park is on the backside of the fairgrounds and has hookups but no sewer. Does have a dump station. The price is right and they gave us the fourth night free(they have our vote).

Let me just say this, this is a nice RV park, but it is just grossly overpriced. I would rather stay in the national park, but because of our length and having an enclosed car trailer for the car show, we chose to stay in a privately owned park. Convenience has a price, and we definitely paid for it here. This park is very convenient to the city of West Yellowstone and very convenient to the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park. Will I stay here again? Probably. Will I complain? Yes. Will I degrade the park? No. It's just too expensive! If cost has no boundaries, then you will enjoy this park.

I like this part and I think the value is excellent, but I can't believe they only have two washers and two dryers come on Really, and one of the washers didn't work so they only really have one. I think next time I'm through here I'm going to try the Spanish Gardens it's cheaper and the reviews are even better than this park. I love the long pull thrus, I like the grass I even like the shade the food is not bad at the casino so we shall see this is a nice park it just needs a little more accommodations for the RV people (laundry in particular) you do have access to all the casino facilities, it is a great place to layover in the summertime it's cool and you need that before you hit the hot desert.

We use this park exclusively now for hot August nights, convenience, price, and plenty a room to get around. We did have to skip this year because of commitments back east so we only stayed one night so our reservations were held for next year(very accommodating). One thing I did notice we stayed further back in the park then we normally stay and you could hear the air traffic overhead which really surprised me, try to get up closer to the front of the RV park and you will eliminate this option. Price included tax with a good Sam discount, we will be back.

I like this park but, I am a little disappointed on the fact that they let all the landscaping turn to weeds and dandy lions that they were putting in two years ago waking me up at 6 AM in the morning. The park is very tight getting in and out with big rigs I saved a guy from Florida probably $20,000 had I not started banging on his motorhome before he clipped the restroom about midway prior to leaving the park. Be careful on your departure swing out keep them wheels straight until you are clear to cut in if you have room otherwise get a couple of spotters a lot of vehicles get damaged in this park. I think the value of this park is a little high considering they are part of the casino. I probably will try to look for other options but can't guarantee it just seems like everything's a little bit run down, used and abused.

The rate reflects electricity and all hookups including cable. We like this park and this is the second time we have been here but it lacks the activities that we are used to seeing in this type of park, meaning swimming pool, tennis courts, pickleball courts, etc. but we were only here for a two week stand and looking at various places to stay longer. We did have to leave early because of medical issues back at home we were not offered any kind of refund or credit for the following year. As mentioned before, a park this size should have a dog run in lieu of just going to the front of the street and letting your dog do its thing since it has such tight rules for in the park. The people here are very friendly. It takes a little while to get to know them because it is a tight community but once you're in you seem to be in (whatever that means). We will probably stay somewhere else next time because of activities but if you're here for a short time this park works great.

We like this park the rate reflects a coupon obtained in Quartzsite. The park itself has a nice layout, the back ins along the entrance have a great view of the Colorado River and casinos lit up at night. The park is showing a little wear; it could use some TLC. For some reason the cable TV is snowy, most people put their antennas up, don't know what the situation is here, didn't really want to ask. For this rate we would definitely stay here again. This is probably our fourth time staying here; very convenient to golfing, the river, the casinos and the shopping you need to do, it works out great.
