This is a great stop-over if in need of an RV spot for the night (there isn't anything with a good rating for miles and miles!). The location is a motel, but they've added 3 RV spots in the rear, and plan to add more. The motel sits in front of "Hideout Rock", a hide-a-way for Butch Cassidy and the Bear River Bandits of the past. Bathrooms and showers are being built this summer. The motel had such good ratings that we took a chance on the RV portion, and glad we did. We had a level site with good full hook-up services and a very quiet night's sleep. The RV spots are nothing fancy, but the services are good and the rate is very reasonable. The owner informed us that they are planning to add more sites in the future, but he's busy right now with restroom facilities and motel expansion. NOTE: use the GPS coordinates to find it (42.08300/110.94740) because the street address (10763 US Hwy 30) is off by a bit.

Watch out for this one. False advertising on linked website! We called ahead to check availability, and were told nothing about the discrepancies in the amenities listed on the website. We arrived expecting to pay $15, and to receive a full-hook-up site (water, electric, and sewer). When we got there we were told there were no full-hook-up sites in the park, and that the rate was $35.00!! Having just completed a long day of driving, then traveling another 8 miles off the interstate to get to this park, we paid the $35.00 out of frustration. The dumpsite is unlevel, and the water hose is too short for flushing (can’t connect your own hose, either); so we will have to incur another cost to dump at a proper facility. Trees have low-hanging branches, making many sites unapproachable. We didn’t even look at the restrooms or showers, expecting the worse. Fortunately, the water and electric services were good (at least our $35 got us something!). It’s a shame, because this park has great potential... but the owners don’t seem motivated to make any changes or improvements. Given that I had called earlier in the day to ask about availability, and given that she is totally aware of the ‘improperly” advertised rates and amenities on the website, she should either have told me so on the phone, or adjusted the rate when I arrived. She did neither. We would never come back.

Our second time at this park, because it is a Passport America member and the rate is more affordable. It has gone up a bit since we were last here. We paid $20 for a full hookup pull-through ($17 in 2012). Water, electric, and Wi-Fi are very good, but showers, though clean, are old and unattractive. Management is very friendly, and the lilacs are wonderful.

RV spots are for seasonal and monthly rentals only. This park no longer accepts overnight campers, except in it's cabin rentals.

I am surprised there haven't been more recent reviews of this park, as it is absolutely wonderful for a short stay. It is very close to the highway, so after a few days the hum-drum vehicle noise begins to "get to you", but otherwise this park is a gem. Traffic slows down considerably at night, so sleeping is no problem whatsoever. The park managers are extremely helpful and genuinely concerned with the well-being of their guests. They have gone out of their way to assist us with a truck engine problem, and directed us to a great mechanic, even offering transportation if we needed it! Sites are spacious and considerably level (not perfect). All hook-up combinations are available. We had a FHU site, which goes for $32. Water/electric only is $27. The dump site looks very level and well-equipped. Fresh water is high pressured and exceptionally clean and delicious (I didn't even filter it). Electric power is great. WiFi is excellent. Bathrooms and showers are top-notch; very modern, very clean, and there's plenty of hot water. The handicap shower is superb and very spacious. Be aware that the website link is not currently working for this park. But don't worry about that, just go there! We will definately be back whenever our travels bring us to the area.

My price reflects the Good Sam discount plus taxes. This was a very fair rate for full hookup. The park has very good services (water, electric, sewer), and great showers, but the trains may rob you of your sleep if you are a light sleeper. They didn't bother me. We only stayed overnight, so I don't know how enjoyable one would find it for a lengthy stay. It's an hour west of Albuquerque, and there isn't much in the area as far as I could see for entertainment. But for an overnight stop, it was great.

This is a very nice little park just south of Moab (about 5 miles), and it honors the Passport America 50% rate reduction. Our rate was $17.50 plus tax, for a total of $19.06...well worth the money! The best part were the showers; very clean and very homey. My shower head was on a 6' hose which could be hand-held or wall mounted (I love those!), and the spray could be adjusted in several different streams. Plenty of hot water, too. The nicest touch was a thick, cotton bath mat placed just outside the stall so that you could step onto a clean, soft, dry area. Our site was pretty level, but we did have to raise the front wheels a bit. Excellent water, electric, and a proper sewer outlet. They even feed the stray and abandoned kitties that show up or are left behind (sigh). We will definitely come back here in warmer weather to explore the amazing parks in this area.

I was very disappointed in several aspects of this park. In two months of cross-country travels, this was the most expensive RV park we have stayed in and for the least enjoyment. Yes, everyone who reviewed it as 'crowded, tight spaced' is correct, but that part was not a major issue for our small truck camper, and we only needed a one-night stop. The noise level did bother my husband's sleep, but not mine (I'm a heavier sleeper). The showers are great and water pressure at the site is okay, but the electric power was very weak (almost into the lower red portion of our meter). My biggest disappointment was the pricing. The website advertises a Good Sam price of $35.10 for a water/electric hookup, but when I registered I was told the dump was closed and we had to take a full hookup ('apparently' all winter sites are FHU). This sounds like a bogus story to me. Campgrounds in the SLC area are very expensive, because there aren't many, sothey have you at a disadvantage! If you look back at past reviews, the prices are all over the place with no consistency. We will go out of our way to avoid this part of Utah in the future. I hate being taken advantage of.

Nice park located about 20 miles outside Richmond, VA. Rate reflects 50% discount for Disabled Veteran. Water and electric services worked well. Must use dump-site for sewer disposal, as no sewer hookups at sites. Didn't use the showers, but seems like all Virginia State Parks do a wonderful job providing nice facilities. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Passport America rate. Roads are very hilly and bumpy, but sites have good services. Showers are on outer edge of RV park; a long walk up and down several hills. Wouldn't seek this park out, but would stay in a pinch.

Date of Stay:

Very nice, newer State Park. 50% disabled veteran discount (very appreciated). Sites have good water and electric, and the dump site is clean and well kept (no sewer at camp sites). Situated next to lovely Lake Anna. Probably very busy in summer, so you may have to reserve.

Date of Stay:

Good services, nicely laid out park. Loop D is the only loop allowing pull-throughs, but it doesn't have it's own shower house as the others do. Would stay again. Price reflects 10% Golden Age Pass Discount.

Date of Stay:

Rates is with a 10% Golden Age Pass Discount. Camp was surprisingly full. Had good water and electric to start, but later in the evening the water pressure got low and the electric was in the lower-end red area on our meter. Surprisingly, the coffee pot still worked! Would stay again if nothing else available.

We don't usually stay at KOAs because of the higher price, but most campgrounds/RV parks in New York close by Oct. 15th, so we didn't have a choice. This one is probably a bit "rougher" than most, since it's rather remote and not near any major attractions. Paid $41.95 for FHU. Good electric and water. Road going in was very steep. Tights turns inside...don't know how a really big rig would do here.

The park is actually located between the towns of Fort Erie and Ridgeway, off of Dominion Road. It surrounds a large, water-filled quarry that is used to train divers from all over Canada and the US because the water is exceptionally clear. Because of the quarry, there are no on-site sewer hookups. There is a central dump-site. Park is very large and spaced out well. It is a "resort" park, so only has a limited number of short-term RV spots. Large shower house is used by all of camp (rather "institutional" style), not as private as may be desired. Nice laundry room. Park usually closes 10/15, but they allowed us to stay since they were going to host a diving class the next day. We paid a Passport America rate of $25 plus tax and a small M/card fee, under $30 total.
