Great park. Great office staff. We're sitting here IN our camper at 18:00, because someone decided they NEEDED to begin cutting the grass at 17:30 - with tractor-mower. He's going half the speed he could be, is MOST noisy - and seems oblivious to the fact that he was blowing grass/dirt/dust AT campers. NO reason this fellow couldn't be cutting grass in mid-afternoon, when the park is half/or-better empty. It's nice outside - cool, breezy; but we can't be out there, since he's making circles right in front of our camper - and has been. Other than that - it seems like a nice place - level gravel spaces - WIDE - trees - good water/power, and sewer is easy to reach. Too bad "his" schedule trumps the customer's. If we're back this way we'd stay here again - if the mower-guy is not retained for next season.

Convenient to BX/Commissary - yes; gate too. Water good. Power clean. No sewer - dump average, but is easy to access. Laundry equipment - several broken, and had been so for ~3 months (volunteer host had reported, but management not very proactive). The "paid" host shouldn't have any contact with people; most disrespectful (don't think she was even 30). Regards cleanliness, we've seen better - and worse. Park is a few dollars cheaper than commercial places, but it's really no bargain for military affiliates (like the on-base gasoline - it's cheaper at Sam's Club, just outside the gate). Will likely not stay here again - Black Spruce, at Ft Rich - just a couple miles away, is better deal (and layout).

Date of Stay:

Clean-clean-clean. Level site - needed only lower the jacks. 20/30/50A. Water was best seen after 5 weeks on the road. Sewer at each site. Cable TV at each site. WiFi good signal - and actually had usable up-link bandwidth. Close to town - walking distance to grocery and restaurants. "Licensed" to feed eagles - what a show! These folks have built a VERY nice facility over the past few years (after purchasing a less-than-reputable business). Stop in and see Nancy or Nancy.

Combined-use military and public - $5 discount for military. This is an "Iron-Ranger" facility, although there is a camp-host on-site. Near as we could tell, all were back-in sites - plenty roomy, and only a limited number had electric (20/30/50); no water, no sewer. Sites were fairly level and well-drained. Facilities were neat and clean, including dump station; fresh-water was a hose on a reel behind the showers. Also "under-the-pattern" for Valdez airport - quite a bit of rotary traffic, but is no issue. All things considered - good value. Fire-rings, tables.

Date of Stay:

Previous reviews apply. Rate higher than previously reported. "Restaurant" not in operation - staffing; no issue with us. Gasoline is competitive with Valdez - a bit more than Glennallen. Electric-only for RV's (we used 30A - no issues) - no pull-throughs, but the back-ins are pretty much any length. Water-fill is included in price, as is dump; both points handy to use. Store has a variety of necessities - understand that this place is near the end of the supply-chain, and prices reflect same. We did not use showers/washers/dryers. Fire/picnic/pavilion available, but not at each site. Felt comfortable leaving RV at this location for LONG day-trip to McCarthy/Kennecott - was a bit uncomfortable with the optional sites at Chitina - on the east side of the Copper River Bridge. The added 20 miles was not problematic. Be advised that Class C/A and tows will need to slow significantly before Chitina - road conditions. Staff at this park is typical of most places in YT and AK - friendly, and appreciative of your business.

Per previous review, regarding the mix of 50/30 amp, sewer or not, cable or not, it gives one a pay-for-what-you-want option. Showers very clean and up to date, although they're not much bigger than the one in your camper. Water and electric all good (except it's SOFT water), and gravel / grass / table sites are level. Nice areas for tents - all grass. About a 100'x100' fenced grass dog area with fire-plug and a piece of concrete culvert for diversions. Folks in the office were nice and helpful. Five minute walk to Wall Drug / Main Street, and another five to the Wall Grocery. Pretty nice place overall, and this park is on our short-list of in-range and affordable places for the 2015 Sturgis Rally (plenty of bikers here now - and it's nice and quiet).

Date of Stay:

Confirming previous comments - yes, it's hot - until the sunset, and the quarter-mile of gravel road is dusty, but the park itself is not. Hillside sites are surprisingly level, and hookups are all in top shape. Also confirming showers as outstanding. Wi-Fi worked fine for us. Don't let the three miles down the frontage road discourage you - it's just five minutes from the exit on I-90, and six miles south of the Little Bighorn Battlefield Memorial. This is a really nice park for an overnight and longer stays, and the management is very friendly - we would definitely stay again.

Date of Stay:

Nice gravel roads and sites - level. Water/electric/sewer all good. Planted trees should have shade in 10-15 years. Grass watered and green. Nice folks in office. Table provided. We were here overnight, but would stay longer if that was in schedule. Didn't use restrooms/showers.

Date of Stay:

Gave this place a "9" due to location - ON the Green River at Dinosaur National Monument. Electric/water/sewer are not available; potable water was available at the rest-room sites via your own container. Sites were fairly private - roughly 1/3 available for "reservation." Our site was 1/4-bubble level - paved roads/sites. Had stayed here in 2003 - improvements made in the interim. Just a really nice, quiet, and unspoiled natural area. We WILL stay here again!!!

OK folks, it's not a resort, and it's not an RV park - it's a good-for-one-night-better-than-WalMart, city-owned place. Nice little park next to White River. Campground hosts were really nice - all slots paved, albeit really short. Only half a dozen with electric - water was via LONG hose (some provided). We had no problems with facilities or area.

Date of Stay:

Fellow at the desk was friendly and helpful. Sites really tight, but I looked at it as a "challenge" to get in/out. Water/electric/sewer hookups all-good, site we had was only a bubble-off - others (mostly seasonal/long-term) not so much. All gravel - not dusty. Facilities well-maintained and seemingly clean. Right on highway, so is noisy if your windows are open - don't count on using your awning/ground-cover/lounge chairs. Decent park for an overnite, or a few days if you're visiting Manitou Springs / Pikes-Peak / Garden of Gods / etc. - if you don't have expectations other than a level spot and hookups. Drive-by of another campground just up the road convinced us we'd made the better choice.

Date of Stay:

Older campground (once KOA). Brand new "rehab" management; lady at desk was very nice - explained some of their issues with rehab. Park itself is pleasant - plenty of room, many trees, grass cut, power good, water good, sewer had pipes at ground-level (good!). Gravel sites less than half-bubble off-level; gravel roads in pretty good repair. Bathrooms / showers seemed fairly "clean," however they were in poor repair, to include ceilings and fans. Typical of this part of the country, temporary workers (gas/coal/RR/oil) keep many of these parks going; there are some long-termers, and even a couple park models with a shed-roof; all are neat and in good repair. Nice setting, infrastructure is good, facilities need work. If you don't need the restrooms/showers, and full hook-ups will meet your needs, this is a decent little campground for the price. And you'll pass Sam's Club on the way in. If our trip/schedule dictates, we'd definitely stay at this campground again.

Date of Stay:

Older campground - (recognizable KOA office building) but still in good repair. Plenty of trees and grass. The sites were level (jacks needed for stability only), water quality/pressure good, same for 50 amp electric; sewer had new flip-caps throughout. Quiet, even though it's next to Rt 287. WalMart right next door. Ladies at the desk were most friendly - escorted us to our site. Work in many parts of the country requires mobility - Vernon is no exception; there were several long-term sites, but all were neat and tidy. This was a stop-through for us; Rocking-A was convenient and easy to find, and we would stay there again if schedule accommodates.

I always describe "value for cost" from my own perspective, and what we found at Raton Pass is a heck of a "value." Views from 7850' and to the south are outstanding! Sites no more than half-a-bubble off from level. Pea-gravel clean, and not dusty. Power also clean (50 amp), and the water tastes good, with good pressure. Upper-level sites have plenty of maneuver room (they lead you to site and help position), with no overhead obstructions; yes, it's a little close, but plenty of room for slides and the provided picnic tables. Wi-Fi really strong, although the up-link is satellite, so don't expect to do high bandwidth activities (watching movies, etc.), and try to be considerate of other users. Restrooms/showers look brand new - tile walls/epoxy floors; plenty of room even for old fat guys (me) to shower with ease. Yes, there's a bit of road noise from the adjacent over-the-pass 4-lane, but it's really negligible compared to other places we've stayed. And yes, the incline between the office and the main area could be daunting (steep) for flat-landers, however it's well-maintained and should be no issue for anyone's equipment. Can't say it's "kid-friendly," particularly if you're looking for playgrounds and games and typical activities into which to dump your kids, but if they enjoy being able to sit on a bluff and watch wildlife and weather (up close)...(you have exceptional kids). And a meal at the office is an added (unadvertised) bonus - albeit seemingly hit-or-miss schedule, i.e., the cook's choice to cook or not that day. We lucked out on our morning - breakfast was great! If you're staying in the local area, it's only six miles from Raton and only fifteen miles from Trinidad, and it's worth camping up here. Otherwise - it's a great one-night stop-over, or a planned overnight on any other trip up/down I-25, which is what now is for us.

Not a "resort," but an outstanding RV park. Concrete pads and patios - paved roads with curbing; plenty of parking for cars. Irrigated trees. Nice folks in office. Well maintained. Sign up for propane delivery on Tuesdays - saves a tear-down headache. 75-80 psi water pressure, so be sure to bring regulator. Showers are individual toilet/sink/shower 3/4-bath type arrangements - 5-ea., with four washers/driers in same building. Hot water is usually "luke," and showers could use some maintenance, but are usually reasonably clean. Biggest feature is SECURITY; it's behind the hospital - inside 24/7-manned gate - and adjacent to base housing. 6-month maximum stay, and judging by the number of empty slots, and the number of full ones in the "overflow" area, a reservation is likely mandatory. The usual big-box stores are close by, a truck-wash is about four miles away (for those of you who may be inbound, and in need of a wash - and no washing in the park), as is a medium/heavy truck repair and service shop just south of the truck wash (Allison-certified). It gets a bit windy - and office will remind you to furl your awning before you leave your coach unattended. We enjoyed the stay - hope to be back for a 6-month trial the next time.
