This is our second stay here during the last few years and it was as good as the first. Centrally located with eateries close-by. Easy on and off I-25 (not I-90) which is also close by. Very friendly owners who were more than willing to answer our questions about the area. Baths and laundry are spotless. As before, would seek out this place once again.

I like this place even though it is nine blocks west of the main part of town. Kind of difficult to find the office when using GPS and very easy to enter into the place going the wrong direction - don't ask me how I know this! LOL! Might want to give them a call prior to arriving in order to help expedite the check-in and site direction process. You check in first and then mosey around the block and then enter from the alley, directly into the pull-through sites. Super simple after understanding the physical layout. Very easy site parking with ample room for even the longest rigs. Kind of pricey for what you get but this is Yellowstone Park and things are not inexpensive here. I would not avoid this place but personally would check out other places a little closer to the downtown area. Good value, nice folks here.

I am not impressed with this park. It was not a good value and when visiting again, I would seek to camp somewhere else. The entire place is in need of an updating and renovation - the place just was not clean enough for me. It is also twelve miles from West Glacier, the entrance to the Park. On the upside, there is a free breakfast but it is of an entry level description - but it is better than nothing. The management was friendly. Washers and dryers worked well. Not all bad since it provided the basic needs but was still deficient in most others. This place needs attention to detail. Other nearby places offer more for similar prices.

This is a pretty neat place - wasn't expecting something this nice in such a remote location. Few blocks west of the main route through town, so it is quiet. Verizon services worked excellent. White crushed rock for drive and sites - but it is well maintained so I am good with that. Hosts are superb. Ice cream social in the evening. I am impressed with this place and would seek it out again if in the area.

This visit coincides with the 75th Anniversary of the Sturgis Bike Week - the place is 75 miles from Sturgis but it is filled up with the biker crowd - all of which are amongst the finest and most courteous folks one could ever meet. This is in the desert and the campground reflects this. Weeds - not grass - and they need to be mowed. Gravel roads and gravel sites - ours is a pull-through. Sewer sites are extra cost as is the cable TV. Free showers, although not exactly new, have high pressure and a super high volume amount of water - never ran out of hot water and I take long showers. Laundry washers take $1.50 and the dryers take $0.25 for six minutes - fed it $1.50 and the clothes came out dry. Easy on and easy off I-90 - use exit 109 to avoid city traffic. If in the area, I'd elect to stay here once again.

Have stayed here previously since it is the closest CG to The Clinic. Was told they have new owners but that aspect was invisible to us. Average place - gravel sites, paved roads with lots of regulations. Some pull-throughs but mostly back-ins which is fine by me. Wifi is slower than in the past.

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.

Date of Stay:

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.
