The park is very rustic. The web site says 10 RV sites, but they only rent out 5 back-in somewhat unlevel sites probably because they are so short. It is very windy there. The electricity connections were fine (30 amp only), but there is only one water spigot so you have to fill your tank on arrival. There is one shower/restroom (each) that is shared with all the rustic cabins they rent; it has heat and a good, clean shower. With an extremely long motorhome sticking out into the park roadway and cabin residents' trucks parked here and there, it was difficult to get out when we left, going out by the highway to turn around, then returning to use the RV dump (which was on the wrong side of the road) and have to circle back through to go out the second time. They have very odd arrangements. There is a store and a café/dance hall (which we did not visit). There is nothing much to do here unless you go fishing or to Laramie about 30 miles away. Neither Verizon nor AT&T work here. They do have good, secure Wi-Fi. We were here to bicycle on the nearby Medicine Bow Rail Trail. We stayed there in a 30’ rig. We would not stay here again.

Nice, clean park with very friendly owners. There are two restaurants across the highway with excellent food. We were here for hiking and found it a bit far to drive up to Snowy Range trails on Hwy 130. We were under a "weeping" tree, but it rinsed right off. There is one shower and two restrooms (for each), but never any problem getting in. The dump station is not conveniently located so we skipped it rather than do a lot of maneuvering around. It was on the wrong side if you were leaving--there was not enough room for us to turn a 30' fifth wheel and someone always had a vehicle parked in the way on one side. Otherwise, it is a very good park and we would surely stay there again. Wi-Fi works everywhere; just a little slow. We were by the river. It was always quiet in the park.

Lovely, shaded, peaceful campground on Gunnison National Forest on Taylor Canyon Road. Hosts were excellent and it was very clean. Vault toilets. You can see the highway, but it is very quiet at night. We were here for hiking in Crested Butte area. Turns could be a little tight for big rigs. We were here in a 30' fifth wheel and did fine. Watch for low limbs. We would definitely stay here again. Beware there is no RV dump station in the area. The one you will see advertised as "Almont" is really not in Almont, but a long way down Taylor Canyon Road close to the reservoir and then 6 miles down a very rough road to Tincup, CO. Closest "normal" RV dump is at Tall Texan RV park near Gunnison, CO on Hwy 135.

This park is easy to find. The owners very nice and help you to your site. Everything is clean and it was quiet. Pads are level gray rocks and there is plenty of room for any size camper. There is a swimming pool. There were no horses in the barns that night. There are restaurants about one mile away on Hwy. 50. We would stay here again.

Easy to find. Nice owners. Level sites. Stayed one night. Close to outlet stores. Lots of permanent residents, although no one home much. Glad we made reservations as it appears full. Shower house could use a little attention. BYOTP. Don't know why people cannot pick up after themselves. They do not allow adapting 50 amp down to 30. I forgot to ask why. Would definitely stay here again. Good Sam park.

This is an excellent park. We are still here at this time. Sites are clean and level crushed stone. People are very nice. Lots of oilfield workers staying here so it is full. Only negative at all is the WI-FI does not work. They have a laundry and propane. We would definitely stay here again. This is a Passport America Park so the nightly rate would be half.

Our second time to camp here in our small fifth wheel. It is very, quiet, shady and conveniently located outside Elkins. We were here to bicycle the Allegheny Highlands Trail. Has electric hook-ups and several water spigots. Bathhouse is spotlessly clean. Only drawback is the that it has MANY vented windows which do not close and during cool season it is COLD in there, but the water is warm. We would camp here again. Be aware the sign for the sharp left turn says Stuart Bickle Knob (should say Stuart AND Bickle Knob) so don't miss your turn as it is hard to make a turnaround.

We stayed here two nights in small fifth wheel. The sites are very small and very old and surface is deteriorated. Bathroom has NO LIGHTS and we had to go up the hill through other campsites to get to it or walk a mile around on the road. Very shady and damp. This campground needs to be remodeled. It rained and was foggy on the Blue Ridge Parkway, so we left. About 20 miles to Roanoke, VA. We would not camp here again.

We stayed here in our fifth wheel while bicycling the trails in Morgantown, WV. Very nice, quiet campground with State Forest employees on site most of the time. One washer and dryer on site. It is very shady. Electric hookups and water source is handy. We would camp here again.

This is a pretty nice basic park on the lake. Level sites. Only complaint we had was the showers on the one end were real old and need to be cleaned with a bucket of soapy bleach water, a brush and water hose (and possibly a shovel). They smell bad. Not sure if because they are old or need cleaning. Otherwise, it is a nice place reasonably priced. Watch out for the mosquitoes.

Absolutely one of the nicest, cleanest, most friendly RV parks we ever stayed at. Wish I had put us here more days. Lots of things to do in area. Good bicycling.

Very nice and shady park. We stayed here a week while biking Willard Munger Trail. We were happy with the park. Beware there is no dump station and you also have to pay the daily or annual vehicle pass fee in addition to camping fee. The park is small and was quiet even over Labor Day weekend.

Nice park. Very busy. Lots of shade trees, but they drip some sap, which seemed to crystallize so hopefully not a problem. Restrooms are cleaned daily. We got a senior discount (I think). Daily entrance fees of $5.00 make the daily rate a bit high IMHO. WI-FI is free for 20 minutes and then you are charged a fee. We had good cell service here. Convenient to the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes for bicycling. You can drive to Coeur d'Alene and Spokane, WA for shopping (and looking at new campers!)

We stayed here 9 nights and got one night free. The spaces are a bit tight getting in, but they were helpful with getting you parked. This also means you have close neighbors, which was OK since our friends were on one side and on the other side was a guy who worked; plus we are gone all day hiking and bicycling. The restrooms are good, but the showers could use some regular cleaning. It was quiet and a nice park. Nice and friendly managers. We would stay here again.

Very nice management. Very nice park. Stayed here one night passing through. Sites are level and grass is mowed. Many permanent residents. Quiet and pleasant place. Close to town and good restaurants. Restrooms and showers are clean and nice. Would stay here again.
