Great value in late March at 17.00 per night. Very scenic. Convenient to the interstate but removed enough from it to avoid the road noise. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Our rate reflects the Nevada State Park yearly passholder rate. This is our second stay at Cathedral Gorge and it remains one of our favorites. Fantastic landscape and night sky. Convenient to highway. Nice place to stop if you prefer a short first days drive when heading north out of Vegas.

Date of Stay:

Fine for an overnight. Convenient to Interstate, noise not too bad in the back row. Large dog area. Would stay again for an overnight along the interstate.

Date of Stay:

What many others have said -- a great value at $15.00 a night. Very convenient, right off the highway. 2 free margaritas. Restaurant was good enough. We camped here in late March and it was not full, i.e. did not have to get here by 11am to secure a space as others have mentioned. Also, as of March 2012 there seemed to be only 2 sites out of the daily rotation not the 8-10 mentioned in a couple of other reviews from prior years. Would definitely stay here again for the value and convenience to highway.

We loved this park, great location, great scenery, no complaints whatsoever here. I suppose if you are in a rig with your door facing the street you might not appreciate it as much, but when we camped here those inside spaces were being used by tent campers, while the RVs were camped in appropriate spots for their orientation. Water and dump were easily accessible, and with electric at the site we found this to be an exceptional National Park campground.

The park was great, most (but not all) sites afford a great deal of privacy. Very convenient to local shopping malls, yet in a true campground setting. We used this stop to stock up on supplies, etc. Our rate reflects the nightly average over 2 nights stayed. Of note: If you are towing a toad you will be charged an additional $5 per day upon arrival (I don't know if the same goes for trucks towing trailers). There is also a $3 reservation fee. If you happen to be camped in one of the few "busy" spots and request a more secluded spot, you will be charged an additional $3 if the spot happens to have a 50 amp plug. We loved the park, but not the nickle and dime, especially on the toad.

We would actually rate this park an 8 if we did not have a dog. First the positives, friendly folks, nice, clean, convenient campground. Excellent value on the PA rate. My wife found the laundry facilities to be especially clean and pleasant. Non dog owners need read no further and consider this an 8. Now the negatives, dogs are only allowed in one area of the park. The sole dumpster is at the other end of the park where dogs are not allowed. As we always clean up after our dog (and it is a rule of the campground as well), this is of some inconvenience. Basically you must bring your dog back to the RV before hiking to the dumpster to dispose of the waste. I would suggest either allowing dogs to walk to the dumpster area, or simply placing an additional trash can in the dog run.

This place was just fine, convenient, right off the highway. Some stores and restaurants were right next door or across the highway. Downtown area and museums were just a short drive away. Some of the other options in town may have been a bit more park-like, but this place seems a better value for those spending much of the day at the attractions. One negative would be the nightly sprinklers saturating the area around our door. Still overall we would give it a solid recommendation.

We had read many very positive reviews of this campground and I must say I was not disappointed at all in the grounds, etc (as other reviews have accurately described its virtues). Pricing however is a bit off. We paid 46.50 for Water/Electric (Sewer would have been more). My feeling is that it's about 10 bucks more than it should be for what it is. I suppose the value is there if you utilize the facilities heavily, but if you spend the whole day driving around the Black Hills and not much time at the park, then you might not feel that great about the pricing. Although a lovely park, we would not camp here again.

This was a friendly, well-kept park. Very convenient to downtown Pipestone and the monument. Excellent value with the PA discount. We would camp here again when in the area.

Date of Stay:

Camped here for one night on the PA rate. I believe we were the only overnight RV in the park, many permanent/seasonal trailers here. A bit unusual of a park actually. The gentleman in charge was very accommodating. We requested a pull through and although they did not have one, they allowed us to position our coach over two back-in spots which created a temporary pull-through. Really not bad for the money, considering full hook-ups and the peaceful nature of the place.

Date of Stay:

This was a surprise. Difficult to find in that there is no signage indicating an RV park from the road or even within the fairgrounds. When we arrived there were no other campers so it appeared an open meadow until we were close enough to see the electrical hook-ups. There are 28 sites listed on the webpage and additional non-traditional sites throughout the grounds. It is a bit confusing to find an appropriate site if you do not require full hook-ups. I still wonder if we parked correctly, but as there is a simple fee box and no host, I guess I will never know. It was nice to walk among all the fair buildings when the fair was not in session. The fairgrounds are walking distance to both downtown and the brewery (wonderful brewery tour and free samples). We would camp here again.

Date of Stay:

Nothing fancy here as far as the campground goes, but the included admission to the ghost town was a bonus that was appreciated. Breaks up the drive between Las Vegas and South Cal nicely.

Date of Stay:

The campground was fine, the staff were friendly enough and the location convenient when visiting the Los Angeles area. We were a bit disappointed to find that this particular KOA situated in a major metro area had no internet/cable available.

Very nice campground. Great scenery. This campground is not on the main road through Joshua Tree, but convenient enough to that really.
