Our experience with KOA had been cramped busy campgrounds. This is an exception. This is a wide open area, some distance from town, with a small lake, nice dog area, laundry etc. Staff was careful to space the campers around the park to avoid anyone having neighbors too close. Very nice place to camp. Good Dish, excellent Verizon 4G 5 bars. 1880's Town (amusement/history park) is just down the street and if you're going there this is a great place to stay.

A very large campground to handle the demand during the Motorcycle Festival, but very comfortable when the bikes aren't in town. Convenient to the freeway but we heard no freeway noise. Our pullthru space was very long with adequate space to park the toad. There are some long term renters but their spaces were neat and clean, no problems at all. The office is staffed until noon only this time of year. The lady was driving out when we drove in just after 12:00 and came back to check us in. Very good service from her. The park is a convenient distance for day trips to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse monument and Deadwood. If I was coming thru here again, this is where I'd stay.

An adequate campground. Older mature treed section in front and a newer open section in back. Roadways are narrow because of the trees but we drove our 65' overall length thru without incident. Park closes in winter. We had a tour group at the park when we were there, so many spaces were full. We use a fixed mount satellite for Dish TV so we requested to stay in the back for a view of the sky. Dish and Verizon reception was good. The water spigot attached to the power pedestal is for irrigation water. The stand alone spigot 20' away from the other utilities, and painted red is the potable water. In their defense, the irrigation spigot has no handle, only a screwdriver slot and no pressure. But the lone worker at the park was peeved when I called to get the lowdown on the water. In my way of thinking a red painted pipe and spigot means danger, not, drink this. Your view may be different. Town is a short drive away. They have a great sporting goods store in town, just like you'd find 50 years ago. Well worth the trip to town. An adequate park to overnight, but not a vacation destination.

This is an older park with additional areas added on. Wonderful people in the office, you'll think they are your grandparents. (and I've been retired 6 years) Many mature trees are in the original part of the RV Park. We were assigned to a space with 2 large trees making the satellite antenna useless after specifically asking for a space with satellite access. The CB antenna scraped on the branches backing in and the branches hung over to the far side of the RV when parked. Our site was on the main path to the restrooms and office so walk by traffic was almost continual. Cable TV is provided. In our space, the utilities were on the other side of the large trees. 40' of water hose and 30' of sewer hose to reach. Our 40' electric cable had one wrap on the reel left. We weren't a very good fit for this space, but the office staff debated and agreed it was the best of what they had available. There were 2 tour groups staying the same night we were so I presume we were lucky to get any space. Verizon phone service was good. Cable TV was a change from the satellite we are used to, but we managed for a night. Many restaurants are nearby and other shopping is close. Staff is very good at giving directions and recommendations. We would stay here again, but make a reservation farther in advance to insure a better spot.

This park is behind the IMAX theater, go just past the theater and take that entrance. The driveway before the theater allows no access to RV Park. Check-in booth opens right at check in time and appears un-staffed prior or after check-in times. Park was at capacity on Sept 19 turning people away. Reservations definitely recommended. Park is on level ground, gravel roadways and parking areas. Spaces are very adequate width with plank patios and picnic tables. Beware the big rock guarding the patio area in each space, it would be easy to hit if your attention wanders. Garbage dumpster is bear proof, the door is HEAVY, be very careful. There is a sign on it, but IMHO the sign is inadequate for the potential danger. RV park is walking distance to downtown shopping area with many souvenir shops and restaurants. Discount to IMAX with RV park receipt. Yellowstone park East Entrance is just around the corner.

This park is an older park with some modernization. Signage from the road is poor. Entrance from narrow 2 lane road into narrow driveway could be tricky for large rigs with tows, pay attention to your mirrors. We were able to navigate without unhooking or backing, but careful planning was required (43' MH with full size PU toad) Pull thru site not long enough to leave toad connected without crowding roadways. We disconnected and parked the PU sideways in front of MH. Utilities were easy to hookup to. Dish and Verizon had good signals. Nightly fee includes access to hot springs next door, but good luck finding the right path to get there. Signage again is a problem.

Park was busy with snowbirds coming and going during our visit. While the park is big rig friendly we were not able to park our MH and pickup (65') in the pull thru space without hanging into the driving area. The roadway is wide enough that we could have hung over without blocking traffic, but would have impeded someone pulling into a space across the roadway. Not a problem for us to unhook and park sideways in front of the rig, but something to be aware of. Sewer hookup was at the very far back end of space which could be a problem if you don't have enough hose. Verizon and Dish worked well.

RV parking is in a large grassy lot behind the Club, with long (120' or so) angled gravel lanes for parking. Try to enter RV area to drive around the loop clockwise to make it easier to get into a parking lane. When busy they will double park rigs back end to back end. This hasn't happened when we were there. Good Dish and Verizon signals. Camp host is available sometimes, other times no host is on site. Good RV fueling station 1 block west on the corner. It has a truck/RV island on the east side. Fast diesel pump (large nozzle) and price was low when we were there. This is a regular stop for us, we'll always come back.

RV parking in gravel parking lot. Fairly level back in spaces. Some noise from the O'Reilly's parts house next door during the day and about midnight when their freight comes in. Fast food and other shopping across the road and beside. Elks members are friendly as always. This is a regular stop for us, we always come back.

Date of Stay:

A members only park. RV parking is behind the lodge. There are many RV's in storage here (15 or so). The 5 transient spaces might be reservable with a phone call, though the Elks RV book doesn't indicate this. The book indicates a 2 week maximum stay; however,during our visit there were 3 rigs here with over a month in the same spot. We saw one other rig spend 1 night during our 5 night stay. It would appear that the lodge is flexible for whatever a person needs. Shopping is nearby.

Date of Stay:

A members only park. Clean and well maintained. Friendly check in by bartender. Nice overview of the city and valley from your easy chair. My GPS shows the address in the middle of the freeway. Keep driving and you'll find the lodge 1/4 mile up the hill. No freeway noise at the parking area. Another fine example of Elks hospitality.

There was nothing special about this park. Check in service was mediocre bordering on poor. We arrived at noon and check in is 1:00. We were told this at least 3 times as we waited for them to complete other busy work (one person was folding brochures, one was assigning sites to internet reservations) before we were allowed to check in. Sites are minimally adequate in width for a large rig w/4 slides. GARBAGE IS PICKED UP BETWEEN 0530 AND 0700 EVERY DAY!!! (including Sunday) If you are in the park you will hear them bang the dumpsters. We happened to be assigned a space directly in front of one dumpster. It was LOUD. We could also hear them dump the next closest dumpster down the street. I complained and was brushed off. I filled out the "how was your visit" e-mail and got a form letter back saying they are looking into my complaint. 30 days afterwards I've still heard nothing else. We will not return.

Date of Stay:

A members only park. Near the top of the hill with golf course attached. Host on site. Sewer dump in parking lot. Steak night is Wed. and Fish night on Fri. Very quiet and peaceful location. Near town for any shopping you need to do. This is a regular stop for us, we spend 3-7 days every time.

Date of Stay:

A clean and nice place to stop. Under new management when we stopped this year. Be sure to double check your GPS and get off the freeway at the right exit. A few years ago our unit wanted us to get off and take a 20 mile trip the wrong way. The web site has the correct exit listed. It is a regular stop for us. You'll enjoy it too.

Date of Stay:

A well kept and peaceful state park. Full hookups with 50 amp power. In October during our visit only about 6 other campers in the park. The lake is apparently low much of the time so the boat launches are at your risk. Close to freeway, you'll hear the noise when you're outside. Picnic table and cover at most sites.
