I really like this place. It was close and convenient to the PEI Ferry and all utilities were in good shape. The site was level and Wi-Fi was strong at site #2. The owners are very nice and were in the process of adding new sites toward the back of the property. The pool was not opening until the next day but they told us we could use it if we wanted. The seasonal residents were also very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice Provincial Park with fantastic views! There are trails down to view the beach during low tide and the tide fluxuates 40+/- feet twice each day. The hill going up to the campground is very steep so you need a good head start if pulling a heavy RV. They have wooded sites as well as open meadow sites. We were in site #74 which had an amazing view and I think it was the best in the park. Site #74 is supposed to accommodate an RV up to 30 feet long but you could easily put a larger one on it as long as you park parallel to the road. The only problem with this site is that it can get very windy up there, but the view is one you will not forget. Very nice folks run the park and the campground is very quiet and well maintained. The roads leading to the park are very rough but if you like "dry camping" and are in this area you should really try it out. I gave it a 9 only because the trails needed some attention but that could have been because we were there early in the season.

The rate is for a pull-thru site with a Good Sam discount. This place is a bit of a drive from the interstate but it is very quiet. The site is very level and utilities are well placed. The internet service is also very good and cable is adequate. The hill going up to the the campsites was interesting. The sign at the bottom of the hill says, "maintain 20 mph" and I found out why. It is really quite a climb up to the sites so make sure you don't slow down until you get to the top. My only real complaint is the price. However, supply and demand is the rule here because there is not much in the way of choice in this area. We would return again.

The rate is for Passport America. We stayed two nights and it was very quiet and close to all Gettysburg sites. We had a pull-thru site and the utilites were adequate and well-placed. The biggest problem was that our site was very unlevel. I was able to level it left-to-right but was about one bubble off from front to back using all the boards I had and with the front legs fully retracted. I didn't see very many other sites that were more level than the one we had. I would think grading off gravel in sites would be part of normal maintainence. I liked this place, but would probably try another campground due to the site being so unlevel.

The rate is with Passport America. We stayed just one night and there was only one other customer in the campground so it was very quiet. We had a full hook-up pull-thru site and the owner escorted us to the site. This was a very nice campground for a one night stay. We would return again.

The rate is Passport America. We stayed one night and had a pull-thru site with water and electric. It was a very nice place for the night. Very quiet, convenient and the site was very easy to navigate. We would stop here again.

The rate was Passport America which they take anytime and for any length of time (although the weekly rate is very reasonable). This is really a neat place. 360 degree views from campground and BLM property all around so you can hike or ATV for miles. Those who have ATVs here are very courteous and drive responsibly. They don't drive too fast or recklessly. The drive to the park, as others have said, is on a gravel road so it takes awhile to travel those 7 miles. However, once we got there we were greeted by the friendliest people we have ever met. The owners are great and very accommodating. We felt very comfortable there. The wi-fi was the best we have ever had at an RV park although you cannot download large files or watch streaming videos. All utilities worked well and they have propane on site. We could only get one channel over the air (CBS) and we had to drive down the road "a piece" in order to get AT&T cell service. We stayed for 8 days and definitely will be back next year for a longer stay.

We stayed here for 5 weeks so the rate is monthly. They request that electric heaters not be used so we had an additional $60 in propane cost. Otherwise, the monthly rate includes tax and electric so its very reasonable. This an active RV park where there are a lot of activities sponsored by the park as well as by some of the guests. One of the advantages of this park is the proximity to hiking and biking trails right next door. No traffic noise and quiet nights were great positives. Its possible to have a site that is quite small or one that has vegetation and lots of room. This is not a "cookie-cutter" park. Unfortunately, our site was one of the smaller ones, but I'm not complaining because this park is a "hoot". There is always something to get involved in. Some of the facilities are well-used but not really a concern because the emphasis is on having a good time not trying to be impressed. I would describe this park to be like an old sweatshirt - a little worn but very comfortable. It's kind of like a summer camp for adults. We had a great time and will be back next year.

Check in was fast and friendly. Also, the parking area for check in was very large. Sites are spaced well and the driveways leading to the sites are huge making it easy for large RVs. Wi-Fi was fairly quick. There was some train noise but no train horn. My only complaint is that the water spigot was right next to the dump hook-up. Like 2" away and at the same level. I used a sanitary wipe to clean off the spigot threads before connecting our hose but still used bottled water to drink. I would stay here again because it is a nice place.

This is an OK place, but just OK. Our rate was with the Good Sam discount, and our space was gravel while the rest of the park had nice grass between the sites and concrete pads. Those sites were even more expensive. The check-in personnel were friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi was almost non-existent at our RV site so I had to use the game room to access the internet. They say that there are too many people accessing the internet, and that's why it's slow. However, when I am near the office, the internet signal is strong and easy to access at any time of day. There were only two of us in our party, which I specified in our reservation, but they put us three spaces from the playground, and we were surrounded by bunches of kids. I somehow get the feeling that the Good Sam discount sites are the most undesirable which is why I gave this park a so-so rating. We will not stay here again.

We stayed in the A loop and our site was quite large with vegetation between our site and the others so somewhat semi-private. The location of this campground is fantastic with 360 degree mountain views. The campground was full but Zion NP was not that busy. It's close to the Visitor's Center and the shuttle bus stop that takes you to all the great trail heads. There is also a nice 3.5 mile round-trip paved bike trail nearby. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Zion.

The location of this RV park cannot be beat. There is a free shuttle stop right in front of Ruby's that takes you into Bryce Canyon National Park. Parking within the National Park is very limited but don't miss Bryce because it's unlike anything you've ever seen. They also have some spectacular trails down into the canyon. Our site was plenty large enough for our fifth wheel and truck with adequate space between campers for the picnic table. The Wi-Fi was virtually non-existent so we had to go to the hotel lobby for an internet connection. I had a package, containing a generator part, that arrived a day after our departure and the office staff called me so they could forward it to my next location. This is a large place and I appreciated their attention to detail. We will stay here again.

This was a great campground and the location cannot be beat. Some of the campsites are quite small and it's a sort of free-for-all getting a site around noon. Our 5th wheel was crammed into a very small site while some very large sites had nothing but a car and a tent. It would make much more sense, for the traveler, if they had a reservation system. Still, the scenery was great and we had a good experience. We would stay here again.

We really did not like this RV park. The office staff was very helpful but the spaces are tight and some are not long enough or wide enough to accommodate both the RV and vehicle. We stayed here during an off-road rally and there were extra 4-wheel drive vehicles parked everywhere. The internet connection was slow to non-existent. I was also told they would not allow the Good Sam discount until June 1st. (the start of their slow season). This is the first time I have not received the Good Sam discount from a Good Sam park. We would not stay here again.

I really like this RV park. It has large level sites with good hook-ups and is very quiet. The staff is friendly and efficient. There are seasonal RVers here but its not a problem. I will stay here again.
