Rate based on Monthly, includes electric, no tax on monthly rate. Old 1960's used to be KOA. They keep it up very nice, neat and clean. grass is cut. Draw back is they want to charge $25 per dog. Since I wasn't told that when I made reservations, I objected and we were not charged. WiFi a little slow but it worked, they have 3-4 antennas. 1 long narrow dog pen all dirt and 1 very small dog park. Lots of grass around and trees. We didn't have a site with a tree so we got the afternoon sun. Can hear a train at night but I have no idea where it is coming from. Can wash your rig for $10.00. not a lot of 50a sites and they have very strict rules about using the 30a sites. We will return when we are in the area. Nice Mall and restaurants.

Can't say much negative about this park. Owners were very nice & helpful. Washing your rig is allowed. WiFi was ok. More like a fishing camp but we liked the Lake. It is about 20 minutes from town of Yellowstone but we liked not being in the crowded town. We adventured to Earthquake Lake recommended by the owners that was close by. Took some off the main road trails. Lots of people Fly Fishing. If you go off exploring off the main road take Bear Spray. We didn't see any but a ranger told us they are there.That day trip was almost as fun as Yellowstone.

Ok for overnight stay. We were there for a week. All sites are pull thru with VERY narrow sites. When you go out your door, you are stepping over neighbors hoses and cords. Nowhere to even put a chair, room enough for slides & awning. Have to unhook toad in most cases. Streets are very narrow. If parked in the front row it is impossible to exit the way it is set up. Also there are VERY OLD trailers that have been salvaged & set up on a chassis for employees to live in.

There is not one thing negative about this park! It is less than 2 yrs old and they know what RV'ers want and need! Spacious sites, lush grass ( yes grass has to be sprinkled to be lush) great wifi, fenced doggie park, great little store. Drive up propane. Discount for nearby Golf Course. Looking Forward to visiting again and staying longer. 2 day's of PA.

Small Mom & Pop park. Very friendly. Spacious pull thru, gravel and lots of grass. Open area for the dogs to run in the grass, that was the best part! The worst part, WiFi didn't work. Connected ok but didn't operate. We were on the far end of the half full park. In the early morning it worked fine. We would return but ask for a site close to the office/antenna.

Site was a Pull Thru, WiFi worked well. As usual KOA overpriced. The one problem is the Geese are all over the park, you can not walk anywhere without stepping on bird poop. This was a real problem walking the dogs. The onsite Chicken Counter was convenient but just ok. The coconut cream pie was yummy! We will not return only because of nasty bird poop.

The park entrance is a steep switchback road to it. Doable but low hang tree branches and bushy trees brushed the sides of our rig and it was a maneuver to dodge those heavy duty branches above. We Read the reviews before calling the park, so we were prepared for the steep entrance but the trees (based on another review) were kept trimmed by the owner. We have a 43' Motor Home and asked if they had a site to accommodate this large of a rig, Yes we where told, a pull in site. The pull in site would have maybe fit a 34-36' on the concrete pad. the rear end of our rig stuck out about 8'. Warning, do not try to get in there after dark, the branches/trees can not be seen. It was very quiet and peaceful for adult enjoyment. We visited Lake Sonoma and Healdburg, a darling wine tasting mecca. Found a tiny Gourmet Mexican restaurant in the strip mall next to Safeway that was beyond superb Beautiful scenery if you take a walk around the park that are very steep roads but none from the over night sites. We feel we were lied to about the size of a site for a Big Rig. The only discount we got was 5% Military. They didn't take Good Sam or Escapees. We will never go back .

It is OK as a campground but not even close to a resort. The river sites are for tents or very small campers. We have a 42' motorhome, we were given a site on the "Big Rig" hill, back-in 80'. Not even close to 80', maybe 60'. Awning hit the tree branches, only choice we had otherwise couldn't open the front slide. Sites are marked off by medium size boulders and small boulder type rock all around the site. My adult daughter tripped on a boulder and sprained her ankle. There is no dog walk. The big attraction is the ease of getting rafting arrangements, zip line and rock climb wall on the property. Outdoor restaurant, very expensive, onion rings $9.95, ice cream bar was $4 in the store. Wi-Fi on the hill worked OK but very slow. Hot Springs pool close by, short drive to Aspen. Price reflects $5 a day charge for each dog and one extra person. Since we stayed weekdays Monday-Wednesday, it is overpriced. It is a tourist town but if you get away from the main intersection there are some fast food restaurants. This is not an overnight stay place, if you enter the park after dark you will not be able to figure out how to get around. It is a good family place for the kids and teens if they don't fall on the boulders! Won't be back.

The park is advertised as Big Rig friendly, WiFi,Cable included. we have a 43'tag Motorhome. Before I registered I asked three questions. 1. Are there low hanging trees , answered no. 2. Do you have a pull thru site that is long enough for our rig, answered yes. 3. Does your cable and WiFi work? answer yes. Low hang in tree on assigned pull thru, could not navigate properly in to the site. We could only get in at an angle because of the tight turn required to try to get in the site. Site would be ok for a 36' Motorhome. Getting out of this site will be a challenge, a very tight curve on narrow road between two trees. WiFi works great, cable does not. We could not view sites from the office. There are lots of small sites without any trees. Worse park I have been to in 7 years of RVing

I stayed here on a monthly rate for 2 months April and May 2010, during the floods. I have to differ with other comments. The office was extremely friendly, the owners are delightful! Even the maintenance crew was friendly. The park is well groomed, the pool and restrooms were sparkling. During the floods, I was able to move to higher ground in the park, but I pulled out for a day managing to get around the road closures. I came back the next day when the city confirmed the dam would not be opened and make that location worse. The other two parks, closer to the river were destroyed by the flood. They are now back up and running! I would stay here again!

This is about a half acre of gravel parking lot with about 5 pull-through sites. The rest were back-ins but would not accommodate big rigs. My site was totally uneven: I could not get even close to level so I kept the slides in and in the morning moved to another site that had been occupied by a couple that uses this park 4 times year. They told me that site was the only one of the pull-throughs, that they can get level in. They called and reserved that spot #31. I also had no problem getting level in that spot. In order to get the $10 rate, you have to go to the casino to get a player card, which I did after I parked. The food in the casino was good. There's a travel plaza across the street with a dairy queen, and a Super Market and Ace Hardware are next door. There is good digital TV reception and my Verizon air card and phone worked great. I would stay again if I can get that level spot. The gentleman who runs the office offered to let me park across several of the back-in spots if I had anymore trouble getting level. A site for $10, with electricity and water is a great deal!

A good base to see the Grand Canyon. It's a basic campground with some long term campers. The cable TV didn't work and I didn't use the Wi-Fi. My reservation was for 2 nights. When I checked- in, I asked if I wanted to stay a 3rd night would they have room. I was told by the workamper this would be no problem. Since it was Labor Day weekend I was glad to hear that. The park was far from full. I called the office the afternoon of my 2nd day and talked to the owner, he said my spot had been reserved for 3 weeks and I could not stay. He did not offer me another space. Since I used Passport America, I have my opinion on why. The park was about 25% full. The big plus for my visit was a Private Grand Canyon Tour Guide Marvouls Marv advertised on the website. I took his tour with another couple and it was awesome. I have been to the Grand Canyon in the past but had not seen any of what he showed us. The tour was worth every bit of $85 for the entire day including pick-up. I would stay at this park again even though I was annoyed with the owner's business ethic.
