This is a very nice, well kept park with many upgrades as most of the sites are owned. Verizon cell/air signal very good. The staff was very friendly. Close access to the freeway (couple of miles). Heavy construction going on on the freeway as well as the exit. Mature trees and landscape. Small restaurant at the entrance was very clean and the food was very good. It was a little too hot, 105, to enjoy the outside amenities of the site. First time to the Vegas area, so not familiar with other campgrounds, but this one is very nice, even though a little on the expensive side. Side trip to and over the Hoover Dam was worth the drive. If ever back this way would probably check out other campgrounds due to price.

Date of Stay:

Good for an overnight. Sites fairly large and level. Utilities worked well and the 50 amp was required as it was near 100. Verizon air/cell worked very well. Sites are gravel with no grass anywhere, but it is desert. Would stay again if en route. Check at the desk for coupons, we received some for Penney's Diner for $2 off for each of us. The food, breakfast was very good.

Date of Stay:

Very friendly at check in. Roads are narrow, the sites are close together. The site we are in is fairly level, but pretty narrow. Observed other sites that are somewhat wider and more level. Verizon air/cell signal is very good. Sites are dirt and gravel to in spots to level the site. My beef is the table is sitting on a small hill between sites and you are sitting uphill or downhill, which makes it a little awkward.

OK for a one night stand. Has narrow interior roads. Roads and campsites are dirt. At sign in, you will be asked to sign a legal document, 8.5 by 11, single spaced, regarding your liability for your dog. When asked about the purpose of said document, the person at the desk took umbrage to the question. Verizon air/cell signal is very good. Will not stay here again, in part due to the lack of grass and the poor attitude of the single individual. Others in the office were very friendly.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here approx 10 years ago, it has been greatly enlarged since then. Lots of pull-through sites, with grass at every site. The newer areas have side by side hookups and you share the green space with the next door site. It's good to be friendly. Seems like many come here for the summer. Verizon air/cell signal is very good. Have an all you can eat breakfast (eggs, sausage, pancakes, biscuits and gravy for $7). Grandson used the pool and showers, mama used the laundry, all very good. Stayed at the KOA a few miles south of town last year, which is a nice park, but not as nice as here.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here last year and made it a point to stay here again this year. Park has large, mature shade trees, and large areas of grass between sites. Verizon cell and air card strength is very good. Pull through sites B3 and B4 are very nice.

Stayed here a year ago, and the same things apply. This time we made use of the 20% coupons at the Hilton: well worth it as the food is very good, especially the breakfast. Did the laundry here and it is very good, but look for the $1 vs the $1.50 machines. Had dinner at the Pine Inn in Lamoille, instead of the Star Hotel this time. Both are very much worth the visit. The facilities are very good, large and clean. Consider this the best campground in Elko.

Rate is with KOA card. Verizon cell and aircard signal strength is very good. Visited the charcoal kilns located about 10 miles east of the campground: worth the visit, mostly dirt roads. Drove part of the Success Drive, which was worth the drive, but better suited for a 4-wheel drive, not the family car. Also, it does get windy here.

Date of Stay:

Rate is with GS and includes a $5 charge for the grandson (22) but the dog is free. Verizon cell and aircard is very good. Stayed in the newer pull through section this time. The trees are smaller and there is more clearance for slide outs. It has been mentioned many times here, the sites are all dirt, very fine dirt. So, don't let your cigar hit the ground.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here about two years ago on the upper level, near the Hwy 46 and had lots of noise. Stayed on the lower level this time, close to the Airport Road. It's pretty busy too. Next time will try for something a little more to the center of the lower level. Rate is an average for a four night stay, Thursday through Sunday night, with Good Sam discount and a $3 a day charge for the dog. Rates are different for week days vs weekends. Has a grass patch at every site and they water at night, but did not during the weekend. Verizon aircard and cell service is very good. Think it is a little nit picky to charge for dogs. Would stay here again.

Stayed here previously and noted that this was not my first choice in the area. Stayed here in order to visit family for Thanksgiving. Not as windy on this visit, but was pretty chilly. Plenty of room for the MH, but not much room between you and the next site. Verizon cell and aircard strength is very good. If you get a chance, go to Jocko's Steak House in Nipomo: it's not too far away and worth a visit.

Date of Stay:

This is a large, level, gravel campground. Some trees, but probably 10 years from being real shade. Friendly staff. Had the pancake breakfast which was OK and at a reasonable cost. Verizon cell and aircard signal was very good. Not very busy, so campers were spread out. Utilities and cable were good. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

All of the previous reviews are on point. Verizon cell and air card signal strength is very good. Have stayed here before, so knew what to expect, including the heat. Currently, hotter than hell: about 115 during the day and 80 at night. No tables at sites, and no grass, but there is a club room building with a covered patio to get out of the direct sun. Would stay here again. More Gin and Tonic, please.

Date of Stay:

Rate is with a KOA card. Escorted to our site. A nice park with shade and mostly level sites. Locals say they have not had much rain this year, so the area is a little on the brown side. Most of the water is allocated to the farms. This is a little outside of Durango proper, but an easy drive. Currently, the weather is very pleasant. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rate is with GS discount. As noted in earlier reviews, in the middle of town and good if you are walking or riding a bike. If you have a toad, would stay somewhere else. There is road noise from the main street thru town. Interior roads are gravel, and nary a blade of grass anywhere so it makes it dusty. Not to mention that the family dog prefers some grass, somewhere.. Does have mature shade trees. Sites are close, but not cramped. Utilities and cable are OK. Verizon cell and air card signal is very good. 15 years ago, the last time we were in Moab, it was a very small and laid back town. It has grown a great deal and is pretty busy. As indicated earlier, would stay at Sliprock or Oasis, based on a drive by, because they have shade and grass.
