Rate is based on monthly rent including electricity. I've been staying at this park for a couple of months, mainly for its convenient location. Positives for this park IMHO (besides location) include concrete roads and level concrete sites, clean restrooms and a nice pool/hot tub area. However, as some others have pointed out, given the number of full-timers with extra vehicles and "junk" on, or near, their sites, this "resort" is beginning to resemble a trailer park. Additionally, whoever laid this park out gave no consideration to the sun, as the majority of them catch the afternoon heat. Also, as suggested by others, the restrooms and dumpsters are a long way from most sites and there is no on-site trash pick-up. While I consider this park to be acceptable, it seems to fall short of being a "resort" and is therefore somewhat overpriced.

This is definitely more a "destination" park for families than a stopover park. I arrived late in the day looking for a stopover and found this park bustling with activity, especially in the pool area. Too tired to look for another choice, I took the last remaining site that would accommodate me, which was billed as a "premium" pull-thru. I suppose "premium" is a relative term, in that there was nothing premium about it to me other than the price. In order to get to that site from the check-in area, I had to drive through almost the entire park, crossing no fewer than a dozen speed bumps before arriving at what I considered to be a normal, gravel pull-thru site. The site was level and much easier to get out of the next morning than it had been to get into. Water pressure was very strong and I had a clear sky for my satellite. I did not use the WiFi. The road to the park off I35 is quite narrow, and trees make it hard to see the traffic that seems to like to speed down that road. This park is probably fine for families with small children looking for activities, but for me it was a lot to pay for features that held little or no value to me.

Overnight stopover convenient to I20 and US 281. I was escorted to a long, level site was easy to get in and out of with towed car hooked up. Clear sky for satellite dish. WiFi okay, but slow at times.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here for one night while visiting Dodge City. Site was long and level. Trees blocked satellite and park no longer has cable service. Restrooms were very clean, but a long walk from my site.

Date of Stay:

Stopped here for one night while traveling. Site was easy to get into and long enough with tow car hooked up. Sewer location required a long hose and had no real connection. Trees blocked my satellite. Other than those issues, everything else was fine.

I spent 3 nights at this park while visiting Medora and Theodore Roosevelt NP. My site was a back-in. One of the staff was very helpful in assisting me with getting into the site. Since I was going to be using my tow car, disconnecting was not a problem. My site was level enough and gave me a clear sky for my satellite. WiFi was adequate. The park is beginning to show its age; however, it was satisfactory enough for my stay.

This park was a convenient location for me while visiting friends just up the road in Silver City. Staff was very friendly and assisting me getting into my site, which had recently received additional gravel to support my rig's weight. The site only had 30 amp service, but worked out fine since the weather was not that warm. My only complaint with the park was that I was never asked if I had a Good Sam membership, which they only honor if the customer requests it on arrival. Once you've registered, it's too late to ask.

I stayed here for three nights. Normally, national park campgrounds are not big rig friendly. However, this campground worked out well for me. The site layout is a bit unusual, resembling parallel parking spaces. This places the "patio" side on the street side. However, the roadway is plenty wide to not cause a hazard going in and out of one's rig. The sites are out in the open, with beautiful views of The Badlands. They are also conveniently located to the amphitheater, visitor center and lodge store. Campground was very quiet.

This is a difficult park for me to rate. Based on reviews I had read, I was aware that others with big rigs had issues with sites either not being level or having too many trees to maneuver around. Consequently, when I made my phone reservation I specifically asked about those issues and was assured that my site was the "most level in the park." However, when I arrived, I was given a site that had such an upslope, my leveling system indicated "out of range." When I walked back to the office to explain my issue, the owner/manager said, "What do you expect? This park was built in 1969 on a hillside." When I suggested that by bringing in some additional gravel and terracing the sites to make them level, she said, "Well, then, we'd have to take out the trees." At that point, I decided there was no point in arguing with someone who had no interest in updating their park. Fortunately, one of the "work campers" was more understanding of my situation and helped me find a site that was level enough. Thank goodness the park had some vacant sites. My other regret was that I spent a good two hours getting set up, when it usually takes me less than 15 minutes. While this park may still be well-suited to smaller rigs, time has certainly passed it by with today's larger units. I will skip this park on my next visit to the area.

I used this park as a one night stopover. My site was easy to get into and was long enough to keep my tow car hooked up. Satellite had a clear sky. While pleasant enough for one night, it was readily apparent that this park is showing its age and could use some updates..

Date of Stay:

Large pull-thru gravel site accommodated my motorhome and tow car for an overnight stop. I was able to get in and out of the site without unhooking. Clear sky for satellite use. Staff was very friendly. Even considering all the positives, I felt that the rate of $48.00 (less 10% for my KOA membership) for a water/electric site was a bit high compared with other KOAs of similar quality I've stayed at.

Date of Stay:

Used this park as an overnight stop. Large, level pull-thru site allowed me to keep tow car hooked up. Also had a nice, clear sky for the rooftop satellite and hookups were well-placed. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

I stayed here for 2 weeks and might have stayed longer. Unfortunately, monthly rates are unavailable from February-September, despite the fact that there were plenty of open sites and some rigs that looked like they had been there for a long, long time. Wi-Fi worked well (unlike most KOAs I've been to) and the park seemed to be well-managed. The location is very convenient to most areas of San Antonio and the bus stop to downtown is a nice plus. I was fortunate to secure a site that allowed may satellite to work. Most sites have just too much tree cover. The roads are asphalt and the sites gravel. Park was generally quiet.

Date of Stay:

I spent 5 nights at this park. For me, the park gets good marks for its friendly staff, easy to access pull-thru site for a 40-ft motorhome and nice, clean restrooms. Unfortunately, trees around my site prevented me from using my rooftop satellite dish and the WIFI performance was inconsistent to the point of being useless. The highway and train noise was going to be a "given," so I was prepared for that. In my opinion the "negatives" make the $40/night charge seem a bit high, compared with other RV parks I've stayed at.

I used this park as a 1-night stop-over. The staff was extremely nice. I was given a long pull-thru site in the newer "200" section of the park. Unfortunately, the concrete site had such an up-slope to it, my motorhome's leveling system indicated "excessive slope." While the lady who checked me in found me another site in the same area with less slope, I noticed that most of the motorhomes in this section were nosed down in the front and the rear wheels nearly in the air. it is a shame that such a nice addition to the park was so poorly designed. On the plus side, the hook-ups were well-placed, with two sewer choices: middle and rear. The park also provides a complimentary continental breakfast.
