Date of Stay: September, 2006
Endorsed by Passport America. Good friendly staff, very accommodating. Clean RV park, by a country highway leading to Yellowstone Pare, but you can not hear any traffic. Playground for children. Gravel RV lots, plenty room. Cody is about 18 miles east and Yellowstone about 29 miles west. If you are going to stay for a long period of time (week) it is good to be in this location, because there is a Walmart in Cody. So you are half way in between Yellowstone and Cody. It will take at least two day to cover Yellowstone. Had a good experience at this RV Park.
Date of Stay: July, 2006
Be ready for a true wilderness and semi-primitive experience. Fishing, canoeing, boating, bear hunting, moose hunting sightseeing, playground for the children. Customer service is impeccable at Deer Path Lodge. If you don’t have it or forgot it, or you want to borrow it, just ask and they will see that you have it. The Owner and family are just great and family oriented people. We stayed there for a week last year and loved t so much that we stayed a month this year and going back for a longer period of time next year, hopefully. There is a lot to see and do and be a part of in Hudson and Sioux Lookout. There is always something going on. There are about 7/8 campsites and several cabins and lots of space for tenting. I would dream of camping anywhere else.

The owners call themselves a mom and pop campground. I call them the king and queen of hearts. Customer service is impeccable. Nice and friendly owners. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. They have nice gravel level campsites. We stayed there last year and this year for over a month each time. Our site was over looking Pelican Lake and Lake Christina. Pomme De Terre community and golf course is within 4 miles. Elbow Lake is about 15 miles. You will be in the vacinity of Fergus Falls and Alexandria. I will never stay anywhere else.
Date of Stay: May, 2006
I am from Cambridge, Ohio. We live in Texas now and have visited Spring Valley for over thirty days in 2005 and 2006. In 2005 any of our guest and/or visitor(s) had to pay $2.00 per vehicle. Not overly impressed by the customer service of some paid worker(s). Very negative tone of voice to me when I came in this year (2006). The person waited on me for registration looked at me as if I didn't belong there and didn't have the right to ask for a camp space for 30 days without a reservation. Reservations is encouraged but not for a specific site. Sites were available throughout the campground. We were assigned in the front of the campground about 500 feet South of interstate 70. "Our second year here." It seems to me the front area is where many over night campers are assigned. We asked for the space we had last year, the answer was no because it was reserved and not for a camp worker. As I thought and read in the office: campsites can be reserved but not for a specific site. I rated 5 because customer service is everything to me. I really expected a lake when we first got there, but to me it is more like a duck pond. There is no sand around this "lake" only grass. You can fish in the same area you swim. Nice catch and release program. I saw only one (1), possibly two cabins. So make your "reservation" early. Spring Valley has a Gospel concert in May and is very nice. Many local musicians come and perform for three days. The campground has all gravel sites and some cement patios. There are shade trees in about one third of the campground for campers that are not permanent. Very easy access to interstate 70 & 77. Close to Super Wal-mart, K-Mart, gas service stations. Many places to dine, many fast food accommodations. Close to downtown. By no means Cambridge is a city, but growing very nicely; however this is the last year we will stay here. There are several other campgrounds in the area including Salt Fort, state park campgrounds. There are less amenities at those parks. Spring Valley Campground is ok if only for a stop over night.
