A basic RV park, nothing fancy here that I saw. VERY unlevel site in the pull through row I was in. I had to use BOTH sets of my lego blocks under my tires and I still wasn't 100% level. Not much they can do about this now, the place was poorly graded during construction. The staff was very friendly and thanked me for actually paying when I arrived late, seems some people try to sneak a free stay. I can't rate it higher due to the unlevel site, was very frustrating setting up all those blocks, as I travel alone. I would probably seek out someplace else next time I am in Reno.

Kind of in the middle of nowhere, this campground is a nice place to stop for a night or two if you are traveling along I-5. I was here in winter, so none of the facilities like the pool were available, so I can't comment on them. My pull through was very long and the hookup post was in very good condition and covered to keep it out of the rain. The staff person I dealt with was very friendly and led me to my site with her golf cart. There was cable TV, but only 4 or 5 channels worked when I was there. They are supposed to have WiFi, but it didn't seem to work. I was only there for a night, so I didn't bother asking about it. With Passport America, this really is a good deal. The road into and out of the campground is pretty steep, take it slow and be careful if it has been raining. There were some long term residents living in rather old trailers.

Park is open year round, but I was told at check in that the water was not working at my site in Dec, but the price was the same. Cable TV worked well as did WiFi. In winter, the price should be lowered in my opinion. Staff was friendly, park was clean with some permanent residents. Good for an overnight stop.

I stayed here in winter and found it to be a bit on the pricey side since the pool and other amenities aren't open. Also at this price cable TV is expected but not available. Free WiFi worked well in my site #4.

Very nice campground in great location. I was there in mid Dec. and practically had the place to myself. Cable TV wasn't working, not sure why, didn't bother to ask since the office was closed. (check in was at the store down the road) WiFi worked well at my site #22. Site was level. All sites appeared to have picnic tables and BBQ s. If you need propane, the gas station had it for only $1.95 a gallon (Dec. '07), the best price I have seen in several years. Be advised, some amenities are closed in winter.

I have stayed here in winter and this was my first time in warm weather. The heat really made the smell of the cows strong. The flies were also much worse this time (early Nov, Yes it was warm) than in early spring of my last visit. Overall, the place is decent for the price and location. Sites are level, hookups good, fire rings and tables. It's not really in Chino, but rather Chino Hills, and therefore very close to Orange County and a good alternative to the much more expensive (twice as much) choices just a few miles down the freeway.

I've stayed here a few times and although pricey I'll likely use it every time I come to the area. Downtown Denver is a quick 10 miles east if you are going to a game or Elitch Gardens. The park is nice and clean, but the pads are narrow and some sites are unlevel. I guess those things aren't bad enough to make me look elsewhere. The staff is great, very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with my cable. I called the office, within minutes two workers showed up with a TV and tested my connection. Turns out my connector was bad. They were very helpful. Oh and they escort you to your site, which is very nice, after trying to read maps and finding sites at other places.

This park has a few things going for it. Free WIFI that worked very well, even way at the back of the park were I was and cable TV. The site I had was also level. I think it is a bit pricey for the location, but if you are stopping between Denver and points west, this is a good place. I can't really say much else, dirt sites, brown grass (May) and the town is pretty much non-existent, don't look for walmart to stock up on supplies!

I cannot really give this place more than a 5. Some of the pull thrus are very long, but they are very close together. My site, 110, was on the end, and it was level and long, but narrow. The thing that bothered me the most happend on my last day. I spent Tues-Thurs for 3 nights. My first two nights were quiet, but on Thurs a lot of toy haulers arrived. This is ATV and motorcycle country and the kids were riding their ATV's and motorcycles back and forth. I had returned to the camp for lunch and hopefully a quiet afternoon nap, and the noise was very annoying. I guess if you don't come on the weekend, you might not encounter the off-roader. It is convenient to the park which is nice, there is a well stocked store at the main lodge, skip the campground store. TV reception as others stated is very poor. I disagree with the previous comments about dish, though, as I was able to set up my satellite internet dish without problems and it seemed most sites you could see the sky just fine.

Not much to say about this place. Cable TV and hookups work. Wifi not free, and I couldn't login to find out how much it was, must have been down. Must be 50% or more residents in rigs of all ages. As an overnight stop, this place seems fine. Just don't expect much.

Stopped here on the way to Yellowstone in early May. The place was deserted. It is clean and the site is fairly level. Until May 20th the rates are half, after that if you have passport America, you get half off. Overall, a pretty basic place to get WE or FU site for low $$. It was clean with lots of nice green grass and trees. Man-made lake is nothing to get excited about and the sign says all you can do is walk around it. I wouldn't hesitate to stop again for an overnighter if I was in the area.

As if May 2007 Settler's is closed permanently. St George has closed several large parks in the past few years, I hope they don't close anymore!

You can pay twice as much and stay at the Zion River Resort, but I don't know why anybody does. This place has FREE wifi, free cable and is a few minutes from Zion Park. You're in the shadow of a The Watchman, a wonderful rock mountain that glows red at sunset. If you want grass at your site and paved pads, then you'll have to pay double and stay at the other place. I'll stay here everytime I go to Zion. Oh and the staff person I dealt with was perfectly fine, no complaints.

A nice park built on a hill. The sites look level, but being on a hill, they slope downward and require several blocks under one side to level side to side. Roads are narrow, but lots of big rigs were there, so they manage to get around. Wifi is not free, cable costs $2 extra a night. My pull through in row K had a very narrow pad and my stairs opened up off the pad and required a large step down to the sloping grass. Staff was very friendly and they have free coffee and hot chocolate. I would stay here again.

This is a nice park in a good location for visiting Garden of the Gods Park or Pike's Peak. Only 5 minutes from the park and 15 minutes from Pike's Peak entrance. Sites fairly level, required some blocks under one side, though, but not bad. Some interior roads are a bit tight with trees, but if you take it slow and careful, you can get around. Wifi worked well at my site, but I was very close to the office. I would stay here again.
