We have stayed here several times in the past few years. The owners are friendly, helpful and busy. The CG is small and busy. There are many permanent/long term residents but they welcome transient RVers as well. If there is a drawback it would be I-17 just outside the concrete wall on the north edge of the CG. Utilities are well placed and dependable, concrete patios. There is decent separation between sites, roads are gravel and sites are crushed rock. Hot tub and laundry are clean and accessible. We enjoy our stays here and will return when in the area.

This is a park in transition. New owners are making changes to the resort, adding getaway cabins and improving facilities. Presently, sites are grass and gravel with convenient utilities. A new laundry and restroom facility is clean and a good change from the past. Staff was friendly and helpful, the office now in the old KOA building in the campground. There was some hint that PPA would not be honored soon. The location is quiet, permanent residents are located in the back of the campground, nearest the Verde River. Wouldn't be our first choice but could return here in the future.

We have stayed here in the past and nothing has changed. Staff is pretty much clueless, but friendly. An RV/Park Model resort with activities going pretty much all the time. Snake Hole Golf is challenging, sand course, members play two 9 hole scrambles a week. RV sites along the perimeter walls are pretty noisy from traffic along Idaho Road and nearby AZ-60 freeway. All RV sites are back-in, gravel and crushed rock and a concrete patio pad. Park your RV on one side of the pad and park the Tow Vehicle or Toad on the opposite. Utilities are to the rear of the site and sewer near the center. Laundry and restroom/showers are clean. There is as practice driving range/net and a small putting green for the golfers, next to the laundry/restroom facility. We enjoy our time here and will return.

Began with confusion. We were not told the office is closed over the weekend, no one to check in arrivals. No credit cards accepted, cash or check. CG is mix of park models and Rv's, permanent and snow birds. Our site was a pull through with plenty of space, unusual though, with gravel under the back wheels and asphalt under the front. Fun leveling. Hookups are convenient, CTV works well. Folks in this park are very unfriendly. When approached they avoid conversation and walk away. There is daily garbage pickup service, at your site. My front leveling blocks sank into the asphalt and had to be pried out. Activities here are pretty much geared to the permanent residents.

Begin with some of the most friendly and helpful staff we have encountered in six years. Large RV/Park Model, 55+ park, paved streets and RV sites are mostly gravel/rock with concrete patios and plenty of space for parking tow vehicle or toad. 9 hole par 3 golf course. Neighbors were friendly and welcoming. Electric and water at the rear of the site, sewer near the middle. CTV $2.97 a day, found excellent antenna HDTV. This park is a fairly long drive to fuel, groceries and restaurants. On site restaurant (okay, but not great) and hotel. Long list of activities scheduled, including bus tours. We will return when in the area.

Our third stay here. Gravel sites with plenty of room for toad or tow vehicle. Some sites are pretty level others require some attention. Utilities are handy, voltage was a little low all week. Staff was helpful and attentive. Escort to the site. There are several permanent residents on site and they are friendly and welcoming. We participated in a potluck and a BBQ during the week. Pool and restrooms/showers were clean. Laundry 5 sets of machines, but you can only use two at a time. There are several National Parks, Monuments and also State Parks, all within an easy drive of the CG. We enjoyed or stay here and will return when in the area.

Easy access from I-10, large facility gravel with large pull-thru sites and utilities well situated. There are activities on site plus guests have access to Quality Inn, next door, great margaritas in the lounge. Very close to I-10 and Union Pacific mainline. Freight trains moving east and west day and night, but no crossings, so no horns. Our T-Mobile Hotspot pulled in a full strength signal, all week. HDTV pretty pathetic, 6 stations and maybe one network station. There is lots to do in and around Deming, use your imagination and have a great time. The park is busy during the week with folks stopping for overnight before moving on the next morning. We enjoyed our stay in this Escapee RV Park and would return when in the area.

A Route 66 icon. Vintage RV's and tow vehicles on display and for rent. Sites are gravel, large enough for fifth wheel and tow vehicle, plenty of room between sites. Trading Post loaded with memorabilia and neat stuff. Next door to Camping World, propane on site & inexpensive. Staff is friendly and helpful. Utilities are an easy reach but some of the sewer locations are uphill from your RV. Laundry $1.75 wash, 50 cents for 30 minute dryer. I-40 close by but noise isn't a problem. We have stayed here in the past and will return when in the area.

Short time new owners. Clueless. There was a note on the office door with our name and a site number. I walked the campground to find the site # and found the back-in on the perimeter, with dog droppings all over the asphalt RV pad. After clearing the site I backed in and hooked up. Owner apologized when we pointed out the problem. There are many long-term residents, not much clutter. Basically a large parking lot with many overnight RV'ers coming and going. Parking for tow or towed is limited. I don't think we will be returning.

Date of Stay:

Easy Access to the RV Park. Some sites are back-in, others are drive through. All have plenty of space, gravel surface, easy to reach utilities (including CTV). Payment is cash or check. Plenty of trees, lots of falling leaves. Owners are very knowledgeable of the area, Hovenweep, Mesa Verde, Canyons of the Ancients, lots to see and do. Although the CG is on the main highway there is very little noise to deal with. Fuel and car wash next door. Sites are mostly pretty level. The park was remodeled about 4 years ago and all upgraded then. We enjoyed our stay here and would return when in the area.

Date of Stay:

Owners/staff very friendly and helpful. From check-in guided us to the site and watched as I backed into the wide, gravel site. Utilities are well placed and hook-up was easy. CTV works well, lot of channels, or HDTV with your rooftop antenna. The site was level, rocky-gravel with grass surround. There are many permanent residents and owners are moving some of them into perimeter sites and cleaning up two drive-thru sections for transient RVers, many good sites near the office building. The Union Pacific coal trains pass through Delta three or four times daily and the crossing next to the CG is the only place they need to sound their horns, not terrible, hardly noticed. We enjoyed our stay here. Staff had to repair a water leak in "R" section while we were there and managed to get it done in half a day. We would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Premium site with CTV. Pull thru with plenty of room to park the tow vehicle. Gravel with a fence and picnic table. Not far from the freeway but noise not a problem. Staff friendly and helpful. Amenities are not far away, propane at the truck stop was least expensive.

As said in other reviews, Thompson Springs is a ghost town, once a major hub for Union Pacific RR. It is in the heart of the Colorado Plateau and not far from Arches and Canyon Lands NP's, lot of incredible scenery. That said, if you come here expecting to "be in touch" with the outside world you ask too much. WiFi isn't. Moab is 38 miles and Fruita, Co, is 52 miles, opposite directions. CG is gravel, does slope a bit and leveling is required when you set up. Utilities are close at hand, CTV 13 channels, 30/50A and water/sewer easy reach. Trains during the day, including AMTRAK, one crossing in town. The staff is excellent and the CG is known to be full occasionally, an excellent jumping off place for Quads and 4X4's into the desert. On top of some of the cliffs fossil dinosaur eggs and other fossils can be found. As others have said there is no place in Thompson Springs to find groceries, Shell at the interchange has some stuff. We likely will find another place to stay when through here again.

Nothing has changed here. An old Mobile Home park trying to change its image. There are several vacant sites and many poorly maintained Mobile Homes still occupied. There are many long term Rv's throughout the park and some are really derelict, others very nice. All that said, the sites are mostly level, some paved, some not, utilities are usually an easy reach. Host/manager was friendly and escorted us to our site. There is easy access from I-84. Traffic noise isn't a concern, great view of the Wasatch Front, snow at elevation during our stay. A lot of the sites would improve if the old, crumbling concrete could be removed and replaced. This is a good place to kick back for a day or two before moving on. We will return if in the area.

Reservations don't help here. Oct 1 to April next year there is no camp host. There are pull through and back in sites and all have curbs and patios to deal with. Not a big problem if you know what you are doing. Full hook ups easy to access. Sites are mostly level with parking for the tow vehicle or toad. HDTV is limited. Wi-Fi is iffy at best. Beautiful city park with hiking and biking trails on the Snake River. We have stayed here before and like the surroundings and ease of access to amenities in Burley, just across the river. We will return when in the area.
