This is an average campground. Only 30 amp and no sewer was available. The place needed a good landscaping, and grass needs mowing. The owner was a little grouchy; not too bad but just a little. No WiFi or Verizon phone service either. Roads and sites are not paved, all gravel. It's an average place, not upscale but far from being a bad place. For the $23, it was an ok place. If in the area again, I would check out other parks to see what others might have to offer.

Usual KOA, a bit over priced for what you get , but I guess the KOA folks need their cut for advertising and other franchise costs,. Average park, gravel roads and grass/gravel campsites. WiFi was very slow so used my Verizon. Owners were very nice.

This is the second stay in this park for us. Both were long term, four months this time because of rotator cuff surgery (OUCH!). This is a pretty nice place. As long term guests, we have a back-in site in the trees but there are many pull-throughs for over nighters. Our site is in the trees on the north side of the lake. It's quiet and peaceful. Was guided to the site and the staff is constantly cleaning and keeping things in order. Daily garbage pick up. Cable is great as is the very superb internet. Probably the best Wi-Fi in any campground - ever. Faster than my Verizon MiFi. Lots of weekend activities. The office staff is superb - as are all the other park enployees. Nice folks and that's unusual in this day and age. Two drawbacks - the bad part of town begins on the other side of the I-225 freeway but there have been no problems whatsoever. It is also colder here during the winter than I'd like it to be. I like this place and will stay here again if in the area. The rate is based on a monthly stay.

Used the park as a hub for other activities in Gatlinburg and GSMNP. Was not there during daylight hours, just used it for sleeping. It's a nice place, roads are somewhat narrow, but we stayed near the entrance so it was not an issue. It was quiet and peaceful. Worked well for us - no reason not to stay here again.

This is a laid back campground. This is my second visit here, both of which were for just a couple of nights. Easy access from I-95, but the sites were a little tight; not bad, but not wide open either - about average. Hosts were superb. Wasn't there long enough to know about social functions so might want to check that out first. A large truck stop at the end of the road - no noise at all but good prices for diesel. Overall, a nice place. Will stay there again if in the area.

This is the second stay in the park over the last few years and it was as good as the first one. This is a very nice place, one of the better ones around. Sites are level and very long with most being pull-through. Some trees for shade while others are open for better Sat TV. The path around the lake is a great hike - take the time and enjoy the peace and wildlife. Everything was spotless and well maintained. Hosts were excellent, juggling things around so we could stay a few extra days over Thanksgiving. It is out in the country a ways but thats a good thing - so I think anyway. It's quiet and secure with an coded entrance gate for after hours. No cable TV which upset the wife a little, but the over the air channels were OK. I would stay here again if in the area.

The price reflects the monthly rate. Shorter rates are $200 per week or $400 for two weeks, but it's only $350 for a month so you might want to spring for the monthy rate if staying for more than ten days. The campground is actually in Utah and not Nevada and is behind the Shell service station which makes it a little hard to find. The place was full upon arriving so I just parked my rig in the truck parking area of the Shell station and was not bothered by anyone. Other travelers who were just passing through parked there for a night as well. There are no bathrooms and there are no showers and a central dumpster for trash. Long back-in cement parking pads with a rather large walk-out. Reservations are not available and registration is at the front desk of The Nugget Casino and it is a little hap-hazard. If there is an open site, that means it's available so if you take your rig out for a day or two, it might be a good idea to leave a sewer hose or some other camping stuff at the site so folks will know that it is still occupied. The cable TV worked fine as did the Verizon Wi-Fi and phone. About 60% of the spaces were occupied with semi-permanent campers, but they seemingly all had employment in the area since the place was quite deserted during the daytime. The only other RV park in town is the KOA (all gravel) and since they are much more expensive, I'd elect to stay here again.

Ths park is OK; not bad, but just OK. It doesn't seem to be big rig friendly since when in a pull-through site I was hanging out both ends until I unhooked and stowed my tow dolley. If I had my toad along instead, there would have been no problem. Sites were a little tight but manageable; it would have been worse if using slide-outs. The office staff was superb, one of the best.

This is a most enjoyable place. It seems to be a family owned park and that's fine by me since I get better service from smaller places than larger corporate establishments. Central location with food and gasoline available close by. The office staff was very helpful when asked about the local attractions as well as being able to recommend other parks in nearby cities. They also cautioned about travel on roads under construction. Verizon Wi-Fi and phone worked perfectly. I would seek out this place and would stay here again if in the area.

I was at this park for five days or so and it was a very enjoyable stay. Grass sites but fairly wide spaces. The office staff was most friendly to me. This place is fourteen miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone. Showers were hot. I never ran out and I take long showers. There is a very huge laundry and the machines worked perfectly. Propane was available as is a gas station and the prices were competitive. Would consider staying here again but would like to be somewhat closer to Yellowstone since that's where I spent most of my time.

Rate listed reflects the $450 monthly cost. This is a neat place. It's well groomed, paved roads and sites. Some speed bumps but I guess they're needed or they would not be there. Lots of various activities along with two pools and a hot tub. Bathroom/showers are private rooms and are clean. Not spotless but still OK. Never ran out of hot water and I take long showers. The laundry uses water saving Kenmore washers and they use very little rinse water, not enough for me so I took the waste basket and filled it with water and added it to the rinse cycle - it works great! The Wi-Fi is iffy, sometimes it works very well and other times it logs off every few minutes. I found the staff to be about average - not the best but certainly not the worst. There were a few ant hills - I keep my own supply of ant granules (Spectracide from Lowe's) and after treating once, they never came back. Anchors Aweigh Resort is about two miles north of here and in my opinion, they are both very good places. More trees here but Anchors Aweigh has better Wi-Fi and it's the newer of the parks. I would stay at either place again.

This is a very nice park, the closest to Fairhope. Stayed almost a week. Very clean, super hosts, paved roads along with cement drives and pads at the sites. The only negative is there was no cable television which is important to the wife. Nice grass, no weeds and didn't see any ant activity. Deducted a point for lack of cable but if you use sat TV you will be fine. I would stay here again if in the area.

National park campgrounds are usually neat places and this was no exception. Several pull through sites in each of the loops. Lots of space between sites. Some sites some are not too level though so check first. Showers only take tokens (10 minutes per $1) which are available for purchase at the store and since we arrived after hours, had to wait until the next morning when the store opened to shower. Good shower though, lots of hot water. Be advised the shower stops without warning so suds up first - then rinse quickly to keep the soap out of your eyes. Price reflects Federal Golden Age Passport.

This is a city park campground. It is off the expressway a little but the campground host provided excellent directions and with the GPS help, we drove right in. Typical city run establishment, no surprises. No sewer but we had 50 amp and water which is fine for an overnight stay. Gravel roads and sites. The hosts were excellent! Arrived well after dark and was guided to the site. Left early the next day so cannot accurately evaluate the entire operation. I'd camp here again.

First of all, we chose this park because it was the only one open this late in the season. I do not give "10's" because you just might find something better later on - lol. Anyway, this place is great and it probably is a "10". Campground hosts and workers are perfect. It is spotless, regardless of where you look. Sites are large and well spaced. Paved roads, cement pads and easy hook-ups. Facilities were spotless and very upscale. Great internet and it never dropped out. I looked very hard and long and did find one thing that could have been better and that was the sewer hookup was an inch above the ground - I prefer them to be level with the grass to prevent and liquid from being trapped in the hose. Yeah, picky - lol. In closing, overall this is a VERY nice place.
