This is a great RV resort. Most of the sites are gravel and one would expect paved or concrete sites for a resort type park. But the quality of the overall development outweighs that minor drawback. The spaces are very wide and provide ample green between sites. The rate is an exceptional value given the quality of the facilities and development. A fenced dog run would be a nice addition to round the park out. One can see the management puts a lot of effort into maintenance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. WiFi and cable are strong. We diffidently want to come back to this fantastic RV resort!

A great campground in a very nice location. Wonderful staff. The sites are level in well laid out park with good facilities. The sites in the front of the park are next to the roadway and can be a bit noisy, but the trade off is being adjacent to the Little River with easy access. The road noise would not be a problem if the local law enforcement enforced the posted 25 mph speed limit. We saw some cars on the roadway that had to be doing 50 plus within just a few feet of out rig! Sites not adjacent to the road in the park are much quieter and work fine though. We thought the site was about $10 over priced given the fact it was almost empty. Aside from the road problem in one sector and being a bit overpriced, it is an excellent park and we will definitely return.

This has historically been the best camping resort we've ever experienced. While we truly love this beautiful place and have visited frequently, we are worried that it is getting too expensive and that they are not maintaining older parts of the park. All resources seem to be focused on establishing the newer sites in the park. For example. the turf (which was at one time perfect)is in severe decline or is missing all together around sites in the middle of the park and when we were there the grass that remained was a bit high. The timers on the sprinkler system are set to go off around sunrise making early morning walks (or departures) quite messy. Not sure if we will be returning for quite a while.

This was a nice, convenient, easy park to access. The staff was helpful and courteous. The sites level, gravel with a bit of green in between sites. The green areas needed a bit of weed whacking or mowing but it wasn’t too bad. They have a little fried chicken restaurant on site that was yummy. The only thing that needed improvement was the bathhouses require updating, painting, privacy and more cleanliness. The bathhouses were at best about a 5 on a scale of 1-10, but were usable. There are nice trails and this is a very dog friendly park. We would definitely use this park again when traveling through the area. Rate with KOA discount.

A nice little park, gravel sites separated by planted trees, well maintained off the main drags in West Yellowstone. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The showers were well maintained and clean. The laundry was a great value. They only take checks or cash but that was a minor frustration. The park is convenient to the Yellowstone West Entrance and within walking distance to many downtown businesses. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount plus taxes.

We were at this park for 2 nights as a base for visiting in Seattle, about 15 minutes away, and it was an excellent value. The park developed as what one might expect in an “in city” park. The entire park is paved and the sites are lined off—and they are close together. While a little grass would be nice it did the job for us. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the showers were immaculate, and they had a very nice indoor pool. The only downside for us is that while they allow pets, it’s not particularly a good park for people with pets. The “designated” area for the dogs is really the right of way on the main drag out front and with all the dogs that visit the park it was a bit unsatisfactory. All that said we would stay here again.

So far the best park we have camped at in Alaska. A little ways out of town and a bit remote but not an issue as it was an easy run to downtown and the NP. Good w/s/e/ cable/ Wi-Fi services at the park. Only issues were minor - a few loose dogs meandering through the park,and it would be nice if the management spent a little time on a weed eater around the sites- though they are predominantly gravel. The CG sites are angled across a gentle slope thus sites are not absolutely level . But we liked the park and would stay here again.

Nice folks running this park. Very courteous. The previous reviews are accurate. Wi-Fi worked in the park for 2 of the 6 days we were there then quit. Its was available only sitting at the front door of the office. Mentioned it to management but they said its the way it is. Noise from the RR and nearby airport are issues here. Homeless people moved through the park one evening trying to sell used coolers. Probably the best thing going in Anchorage for camping though. Convenient to many Anchorage attractions.

Not a bad facility for an Alaska RV campground. Gravel with overgrown weeds and grass. Very friendly staff. Not fancy but it works for overnight camping. There is a fee for showers here.

Toad River has been a highpoint of our camping experiences while traveling the Alaska Highway. Very nicely laid out and well maintained campsites located in a remote area adjacent to the highway. Restroom facilities were rustic and outdated as was the laundry room, however, it was a very enjoyable and lovely setting to stop and relax. A Beaver pond/lake next to the campsite provided excellent wildlife entertainment at no extra cost. Full hook-ups nicely positioned at campsites. Campsites well marked. Much needed fuel was available. The Wi-Fi was the best we’ve experienced in the Northwest. The on-site café ceiling was covered in ball caps. We would stay here again.

Very nice, clean park, located far enough off the highway where road noise was minimal. Sites are level gravel. Wi-Fi services were only available in the laundry and office areas and then the system was very slow, easily overloaded by all those trying to access the system at the same time. The fenced in dog park area is good for large dogs, but small dogs can easily escape under the fence. The showers were clean, but several were out of service. They seemed fanatical about their grass/lawn. No vehicles are to be parked on any part of the grass. The owners concern about their grass seemed to be overdone. We would stay here again if in the area.

This campground only had water and electric connections in a facility that is showing its age. Well developed dump sites (6 lanes in large open area). There were long lines in late afternoon to enter the park even with advanced reservations. The online registration process was expensive and cumbersome. In addition to the nightly rate, you have to pay a National Park Entrance fee of approximately $20/day. All that said, it is about the only campground in Lake Louise for RVs. They had a separate tent section that is enclosed by an electric fence to keep bears out of the campground.

$49.20 (includes sur-charge for registration). This campground was one of the finest government operated facilities we’ve stayed at. Well developed and maintained with full hook-ups at each site. Restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained, however, only had one shower stall in each restroom. Hiking trails were easily accessible and marked throughout the area with spectacular views of the mountains. The only negative we found with this campground was the online registration process was expensive and cumbersome. In addition to the nightly rate, you have to pay a National Park Entrance fee of approximately $20/day.

Conveniently located to the East Entrance of Glacier National Park. This campground sits on the side of a steep hill making it difficult to level rigs. Bathroom and laundry facilities are located at the bottom of the hill with a steep climb or descent to access bathroom and laundry facilities for full hookup sites. The laundry room was nice and well maintained. Wi-Fi was advertised to be available in laundry and office areas. However, this did not work at all, even after the owner rebooted the system. There is a café on-site. A lot of seasonal workers seemed to reside here. Sites were narrow and short. Grass was overgrown. Staff was friendly and helpful, however, we will probably not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very nicely laid out campground which was well landscaped in the more developed sites on a scenic location along the Yellowstone River. We were frustrated the cable and Wi-Fi that were advertised were non-existent at our campsite. The Wi-Fi system was totally inadequate to support a campground of this size. Most of the time the Wi-Fi was unusable. We were able to finally access the Wi-Fi at 4:30 AM, when no one else was on-line. For the price we paid, not having cable or Wi-Fi and no sewer on our site, we were disappointed. Despite this being a showcase KOA campground, it had the dirtiest showers we have ever seen in a KOA. The campground however had numerous amenities such as on-site grill that served 3 meals a day and scoop ice cream that we felt was a little overpriced. It would have been nice if this campground had a fenced in dog park. We will not stay here again.
