We have stayed here previously and were not disappointed this time either. We were here for a large rally of our owner's club, which the park accommodated very well. The sites are large, paved and surrounded by lovely green grassy areas and beautiful, big shade trees. They are level sites with picnic tables. The river flows by a portion of the campground, giving more great views to those sites. We had rally activities in the covered picnic shelter. It is just a beautiful and well cared for park and we will return.

We have stayed in this park previously for shorter periods of time and been very satisfied with the overall park. This time we were staying for a full week, and because of this we were not placed in the rv park section. They keep the rv park area open for short term stays and place folks who are staying longer in empty lots in the adjoining mobile home park. We had hook ups, which was good, but the lot was very unlevel and filled with dry and dead weeds and dog poop! The man who guided us to this lot tried his best to be helpful and was somewhat apologetic at our placement there. The utility hookups had not been opened since they had been winterized and so he did take care of that. The entire area smelled like dog poop. There was a weed encrusted concrete pad but it was nowhere near our door and so we exited directly into the weeds, which my husband tried to hack back. Our neighbors on one side were like something out of Dogpatch! The garbage dumpsters were in the rv park which was a ways from our lot. It served the purpose for us but was not ideal and since there are not a lot of places to stay in the area, I guess we cannot be too choosy. But we were disappointed.

This was our first visit to this park. It is only 45 minutes drive from the Grand Teton National Park and is cheaper than parks in the Park. It is affiliated with a motel. Our site was fairly level, gravel with a small amount of grass to the side. Each space seemed to have a small tree. The small village of Tetonia does not have much to offer but there is a larger town about seven miles away. We did laundry and the laundry room was none too clean. I had to sweep because I couldn't stand all the dirt and stuff on the floor. The price for the laundry was on the high side. It was a very pastoral setting with views of the Grand Tetons in the distance. It was very quiet. Our pull through was large enough to easily accommodate our rig and tow vehicle. We would return.

We stayed in this park over the fourth of July. The sites are all pull through or back in and very close together, gravel and grass, but level. We were able to put out our awning. Limited parking for tow rig. Roadways are paved. Right on the highway but very quiet, even on the fourth!! No trees in the park at all. We enjoyed all the holiday activities in the city. We would return again.

We spent one night here. This is our second visit. We were able to remain hooked up in our pull through site. The site was fairly level gravel with grassy area next to the rig. There is a picnic table. There is a very nice area to walk with our dog. I used the laundry facilities which were clean and fairly priced. This is a very quiet park, even though it is close to the interstate. It is a good way stop on your way to Yellowstone.

We were here for a one nighter. We were able to remain hooked up in the long pull thru. The site was level and shaded with some grassy area and a picnic table. We used the laundry room which was clean and well priced. There was adequate cable tv which was good because there are many trees which would block our satellite. The park is directly behind a motel and so you have too look carefully to find the drive in.

We chose this place based on what was available. It is one of several lined along the highway which runs up a mountain and through a canyon just outside of Deadwood. It was about a fifteen minute drive back into the town. This particular park is built on a ledge above a gas station and some rental cabins. We really weren't prepared for all the ATV and motorcycle folks in this small park and, in general, everywhere else. There are about eight pull thrus and the rest of the sites are back in. The pull thrus were easy in and out for us but we were perched on the edge of the ledge and right on the road between the pull thrus and the back ins. Not exactly conducive to sitting out in the evening. The fire pit was so close to our rig I didn't feel it would be safe to use. There was also a picnic table at each site on a little concrete pad. All the sites had some grass. They were level and the hook ups were conveniently located. There was no cell service and no wifi, even our hot spot was useless. The tv reception was also very dismal, both the satelite(Dish) and antennae. There was no cable. Made for some long evenings. The staff was friendly and the adjacent gas station/convenience store was pretty well stocked. The highway quieted down considerably after the sun went down.

This campground is close to I-80. We were given a pull-through. It was not very level but long enough for us to remain hooked up. This is a very basic park. It has a lot of what appear to be permanents and is not very well kept up. If all the spaces were actually used you would be very close to your neighbor in some spots. The man who checkeds us in was friendly and guided us into our spot.The area had recently had some heavy rain and we were unable to use the shortcut into town. The longer route was available and was about a ten minute walk right into town. We did not check out the bathrooms or laundry.

This is a very basic little campground right off the freeway. When you exit the freeway, you have to watch carefully for the entrance to this park, as it is behind a big motel and it is difficult to see. The pull-through site was long enough to allow us to remain hitched. It was level and easy to access. The sites are gravel with grassy areas next to each rig and individual picnic tables. There are trees as well that provide shade. The laundry room was very clean and very reasonably priced. The staff was friendly. There was very little highway noise, even tho you are right near the road. This was our second time here and we will return.

This is a very conveniently located park. It was right next to the Dairy Queen! It is also near a fuel stop that was easy for us to get into and out of with our rig attached, and near the road. We were here for only one night and did not unhitch. The pull thrus are very long (70+ ft.). Unfortunately the new gravel the fairly new owners just laid down is partially dirt and pretty deep so that, with the recent rains, it was quite muddy. There are large spaces between sites and all the sites have grassy areas and trees. The hook ups were easy to access. It was very quiet. The new owners were very friendly and eager to please. We would return to this park again.

Do NOT forget to tell staff if you have Passport America. They will not ask and if you forget you cannot get a refund! This is our third visit to this park. It is convenient to Iowa City as well as about a half an hour off of I-80. Very quiet and situated very close to the quaint villages that encompass the Amana Colonies. The roads and sites are gravel with grass alongside. Due to recent heavy rains the entire area was quite soggy. Our spot was a pull thru only as long as a second person was not backed into the site behind us, and then they were quite close to our rear window. The sites are gravel and level and sufficiently wide for slide outs. The utilities are on a shared post with both fifty and thirty amp available. There is no shade in the area. The staff was friendly and available. There was a big Good Sam rally beginning while we were there but they were able to make room for our stay.

This is our third stay at this park. We were here for only one night this time. It is close to the highway but with little road noise. It is small but sufficient. The spaces are gravel and level and not too tight. The hook ups are conveniently located. The laundry facilities are clean and fairly priced. There is only one washer and one dryer. The park is situated on a small lake where fishing is available. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will most certainly return.

The office staff was very nice and accommodating to our request for a specific site. The roadway in is partially paved and then gravel. There are speed bumps that resemble curbs so drive slowly. The sites are long and grassy, long enough to remain hitched if you want. They are fairly close together. There are picnic tables and the water, electric and sewer are conveniently located. Not all sites have cable. The laundry facilities are clean, $1.75 for both wash and dry.

Date of Stay:

First time here. The park and the motel are run together. We have a pull thru in which we were able to remain hitched. The sites are none too level. Hwy 34 passes between the motel and the rv park. We called earlier and made a reservation. Because of that we just pulled into our appointed site and then walked across the highway to register. We were given two coupons for free drinks at the adjoining restaurant. We went there for dinner and were able to have a very nice meal for less than $20!! There is a rail line behind the park which is active. We are not bothered by train noise. We would return, and would recommend this park to friends.

Date of Stay:

This is our first stay here. The park is very close to I-80 but the traffic noise was negligible. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was fairly level and big enough to allow us to remain hitched. It was easy to get into and out of.
