Why is my rating so low? It is a nice looking park with very friendly staff. But when you have a 38 foot MH with auto leveling system and you need to drive up on 2 boards and manually level, there is a serious problem with the design of the park! The pull-through sites, which we were in due to availability, are sloped so much that it is impossible to level. When I mentioned this to the staff that parked us, his answer was: "There was a guy down there parked for 2 years with none of his tires on the ground." Very unacceptable in our opinion. (Also MH manufacturers who state that tires should never be off the ground as it will adversely effect the frame and axle.) We would not return to this park nor would we recommend it to anyone for that reason.

Basic park, clean, friendly staff, easy and out dirt sites with several feet of grass between them. Good full hookups and Wi-Fi. We stayed here end of season and only one night was the park full. Very convenient to Bryce and Zion. There is no cell service, nearest gas is about 4 miles, and about 20 miles to get cell service or groceries. We would stay here again.

The rate is based on a weekly rate. Nice resort but not much going on. The resort was not full while we were here. Reason for not giving resort a 10 was their sprinkler system which came on morning and night. It got our coach wet each time which meant we had to dry it off or have water spots. They water so much that the grass is muddy and soaked. Site was cement with small lawn on 1 side and in the back and privacy between coaches with hedges mid window height. No outdoor table on site. The resort is about 4-5 miles from the "strip". We would stay here again because of distance between coaches and the security.

If you want to stop somewhere just before crossing into Canada, this is the spot and the only reason we returned again this year. They charge a $10 "fee" to make a reservation and then credit it towards your stay. When I made the reservation she quoted me $22 if I paid cash upon arrival. The man at the desk told me there were no cash discounts for 50 amp but since she'd told me that, he would agree to it. The park is a gravel dust bowl where the wind blows very strong in the afternoons. Don't look for anything beautiful or usual at this park. We would stay again if we needed a stop before crossing into Canada.

Stayed here last year so returned. I was a little disappointed that despite having made a reservation several months earlier, the owner's son said he could not find it. They only have a few long 50 amp sites but one was available even without the reservation. The rate is a Good Sam rate less the $5 Good Sam coupon. The son did not know how to handle the coupon so charged my credit card the full price and told me to return when his Mom got there. I did and she gave me cash. With the reservation problem I will have to think twice about returning to this park.

Nice people, nice little park but more for local families than for travelers. We were here for 11 days as part of a Calgary Stampede caravan. The rate based on the 2 nights we came in early. Back in sites are adequate and we were lucky enough to get roof top satellite. The big negative was the power which was only 30 amp and went off 4 or 5 times for just enough time to stop the microwave clock. The road down into the park is very busy with people using the river. It is too far from Calgary or the parks. We would not stay here again.

This was a Good Sam rate less a Good Sam $5 coupon. We were very disappointed in this park. We had stayed across the street last year but now have a roof top satellite which we did not feel we could use there. We chose this more open Jellystone Park for that reason. The interior roads are in horrible condition, the sites are not very level, and some of the RVs and toads barely fit. It appears that the owner must not be on site and there is very little pride of ownership at this park. If in the area again we would not stay here, even if it means not having satellite, we would stay across the street.

We stayed here last year. This year we were given a site where we could not get roof top satellite, the pad was narrow, there was a big puddle of water which we would have needed to park in, and could not get out our door without stepping into a bush. I called the office from the assigned site and was given a choice of 2 other sites. We took the first one we looked at and everything was fine. A thunder storm came through the first night we were here and the tree at the originally assigned site had multiple small branches which had come down and would have landed on our motorhome. I agree with the high laundry price: $4 per load to wash and dry. That was the most expensive we have ever paid.

We stayed here last year and returned again because we enjoyed the park. We had a nice spot where we could get roof top satellite and plenty of room for our 38 foot motorhome and toad. There were several large pine trees between the sites which make them so close to the RV that you can not put out your window awning but it was not required with the shade. We did not have any mosquito problems where we were. Having full hookups for a week and still close to the NP was very nice. We enjoyed being able to open our windows without having any camp fire smoke which I am allergic to. If back to Yellowstone again we will stay here.

We stayed here last year and found this time the office staff was much more organized. We received the on-line booked site for a pull-through that we had requested. There is a 6 foot wide cement strip next to the RV pad and then another 6 feet of grass next to that making 12 feet between the RVs. Our site was easy to get in and out of and we had plenty of room for our 38 foot motorhome and toad. The only negative comment about this park that we have is the lack of speed limit enforcement. We would stay here again to visit friends who live in the area.

The rate was a Good Sam rate, less the Good Sam $5 coupon. We had a very long, 50 amp pull through site, but because of two large trees on either side, we were not able to get our roof top satellite. If we had not pulled forward as far as we did we might have gotten a signal. For 1 night we did not want to move when good cable TV was available for most channels except Fox. The park was quiet, clean and the rate was good, so we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The rate was based on a week's discount for a weekly minimum site with the tax included. They charge more for the weekends. The site was separated from the road by grass and tall pine trees. We requested a site where we could get DirecTV and had no trouble with our roof top mounted dish. There were no trees giving us any shade as a result. We only saw a couple of more sites in the park where roof mounted dishes could get a signal. The park was not full, most likely because of the high rate. We agree with all of the positive things said about the park. If we wanted to stay in Bend again we would come back. There is a 12 foot 10 inch height restriction on the road coming from the east so follow the park's driving directions to avoid it.

The rate was a weekly Good Sam rate less the $5 Good Sam coupon for an Executive site which was about 15 feet wider than the other sites. Others complained the sites were too close but we did not have that problem. Park was clean, good power, and a nice laundry. There did appear to be many RVs here for people working in the area, but this did not cause any problem for us. We would stay here again if in the SLC area.

Date of Stay:

Very quiet at this time of year. We were the only ones in a 50 amp pull-through row. We did not notice highway noise when inside the motorhome. Our site was level, easy in and out, plenty of space between our site and the ones next to us, and power was good. Some sites have trees, but the one we were in allowed us to have satellite. I did not notice "tight" spots. This was a perfect stop traveling between West Memphis and Amarillo, and if traveling I-40 again we would return.

Wonderful park for adults but we did not see much for children here. We had reserved a river front site for 2 nights but had to change our plans several days before our stay and could not get a river front site. Our site was in the 3rd row back from the river but we could still see barges going up the river. It was one of the 3 concrete sites in that row but most of the concrete sites are river front. There were many fairly good size trees in this section but they appear to be placed so most sites, including ours, are able to get satellite. The parks Wi-Fi signals did not appear strong at our site but our Verizon air card worked well. We would return to this park.
