If we hadn't paid this high rate, I might be more kind. But we had a huge generator running day and night within 50 feet and a second 200 feet away. The cable hookup was in the next site. The "free" Wi-Fi was a joke--it takes 3 minutes to open a traditional site. But they offer you a "speed-up" for $$. Their café had only half of the things we wanted to order. The lifeguard sat while a stranger rescued a toddler. C'mon folks -- live up to your billing!

Weekly rate with Passport America. If it had been double that, this evaluation would be lower! That being said, it was a very nice rustic campground -- quiet, nice view, and the horse facility right next door. We had one of the best sites; about half of them are really nice. Everything worked well. It gave us an opportunity to take advantage of the spectacle that is Moab; two of the country's most beautiful national parks plus much more. There was a reasonably priced grocery store in town (Kroger subsidiary), and though it was after Labor Day, the "tourist trap" outlets were in full bloom! The local Music Festival provided beautiful concerts.

Fine campground when we parked here frequently on the hill years ago with our 30' tagalong. Totally different story now: not at all "friendly" down on the flat for a 40' fiver. Narrow roads, tight turns, tree obstructions, small tight sites. The person who checked us in was the worst in our 8 years (many full time) of RV travel. Aloof, surly, and insulting: he would be reason enough for us to never come back. Bathroom gave "rustic" a whole new meaning; thank God I only had to use it on arrival!

I am trying to find some reason to not rate this a 10, which I never do. Sites are HUGE, utilities fine and well positioned, close to everything, very dog friendly, indoor pool, excellent Wi-Fi and cable, back-ins easy to negotiate (w/38' fiver), great office staff and aesthetically attractive, with low masonry walls define paths, borders and even tent sites. Lots of growing things. Oops -- got it. This site wasn't quite level. Guess I'll have to call it a 9.9!

Kind of a "hardscrabble" park with many (nice) permanents. But it has numerous benefits we consider important. Convenient, working utilities. Roomy sites. Close to what you want to visit. Really pet friendly, not just conditional pet acceptance. Most of all, owners rank among the nicest owner-operators we've run into in many years and many sites. We would certainly come back.

So here's the deal. You make a phone reservation and get an e-mail letter back thanking you. You get there to check in and no humans -- pick any site and put your fee in an envelope. It's a rough gravel parking lot with a couple dozen trees and two rows of narrow side by side sites defined only by the utility posts. The view is a beautiful lake next door. In the middle is a great new bathhouse/laundry/rec room. For overnight, maybe two, a great bargain. Otherwise, move on.

This is a small, basically maintained campground. But there's nothing basic about the owners. We have not met a nicer couple in all our travels, and that's worth many points. No cable TV, but satellite and antenna worked fine. Excellent Wi-Fi. Less than half a mile to an exciting old fashioned downtown that's alive day and night. We would certainly return.

This is a $23 campground that charges $63 for location, location, location. Roads and sites are awful, but utilities work fine. Couldn't be more convenient for Teton and Jackson Hole activities however. In their favor, you can use the pool and spa at the Resort that owns them. Cable excellent; Wi-Fi kicks you off repeatedly. Returning isn't an issue; we've done the Tetons!

Very well maintained park and perfect for daily trips into the Park. The back-ins were not long enough for our large rig and tow vehicle so we had to park partially on the lawn, defying the rules. But nobody complained despite staff passing by frequently. Wi-Fi on a stupid coupon system, 2 hours at a time and didn't work half the time. Limited cable. While we were able to position okay, many rigs had more than 30' of sewer hose. Would look around for alternative next time.

I'm convinced the review that called this park a "best kept secret" was written by someone close to the ownership. In truth it is a gravel and grass, incredibly buggy parking lot with about 40 underdeveloped, crowded, side by side sites and fewer than half with sewer. No services at all except one porta potty. The punitive set of rules says that if you take a sewer site, you must arrive with an empty tank. Who would know?? Wonder if they have a meter on your outflow. It's surrounded by a ranch with beautiful horses and a herd of steer, and that's the only nice thing I can say. Thank goodness we got the PA rate; anyone who paid $40 for this place would be very sore, indeed.

This is the most pristine park I have ever seen. Asphalt drives and concrete sites are decorated and surrounded with small trees, floral bushes and grass areas worthy of a golf course. Sprinklers go off every day. All that says: "Look but don't touch." Despite a pet walk area, it's not at all pet friendly, and the pet area stinks to high heaven. It has one piece of kids climbing equipment on a 200 square foot wood chipped area, on a busy corner. The horseshoe toss is virtually invisible; it's totally landscaped! No pool, but has exercise equipment. Free Wi-Fi but they try to talk you out of using it. No kids or pets? You'll find it close to everything you want to see in Salem, and it's "eye candy." Otherwise, stay away.

Date of Stay:

Positives: All asphalt sites with small well kept, grass plots. Across the river from Mt. Hood and close to the Columbia River. Gorgeous sites. Negatives: It's between a truck highway and a freight railroad, both 100 yards away and very active (with comp. brakes even!). "No" signs all over the place. You feel like big brother is watching you all the time. Pet area is down a hill and it's hard to get pets there without accidents. Much too expensive for what you get. No pool.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground with large concrete patios, good facilities, pet run, and other amenities. The only drawback was the arrangement of the utilities. Long runs, and on some sites the sewer hose is same side as your patio area! Lots of things to do in the area along the Columbia River, and very historic.

Date of Stay:

Wish I could find something good to say. If this were a PA campground at half price ($18), I still wouldn't have stayed if I'd seen it first. Facilities were under water -- not totally their fault; they were drowned from hard winter. But no cable and no local antenna stations. Promised good satellite, but ours was blocked. Very coarse sites, small, and the entire place was unkempt. And the road noise? Deafening, even when closed up. Stay away!

We stayed here for six weeks and fell in love with both the CG and the city. Everything was perfectly done and all needs not on-site were nearby. Staff, with one exception, was excellent. The exception, a perennial workcamper, promised to help me after surgery and failed to do so. Office and shop were open long hours. Mail handled beautifully. We hated to leave, but new destinations beckoned. We used both mobile and offsite RV repair services with A-1 results.
