Like many Thousand Trails parks, this one is old and has lots of permanent residents. Most of the permanents are in their own section, in trailers or tiny mobile homes. They are making an effort to upgrade the electricity and plumbing in the park, which is good. If all goes well, that work will be done before the snowbirds arrive later this year. Hopefully Thousand Trails won't do what they've done in many other parks where they charge people an "amenity fee" to use the upgraded sites. There is no cable TV but we were able to get quite a few over-the-air channels. There is also no WiFi except for a fee. We paid $30 for the 3 weeks we were there. It worked fairly well except during the morning and evening "rush hours" when it pretty well shut down. Verizon LTE worked well all the time. The sites are sand, or maybe dirt and sand. We tracked sand into our trailer constantly. It was like being at the beach without the benefit of the water. Most of the sites are exposed. Ours had some trees for shade which was very welcome in the summer heat. Sites vary in length a lot. Ours was long enough for our 28' fifth wheel, truck, and a car. There is a lake you can fish in. My husband hooked an alligator so be careful!

This is a very nice campground for a one-or two-night stay. You can only drive into the campground from the northbound lanes of U.S. 49. If you are going southbound, you go past it a short way and then there is a place to u-turn and go back. It is very well-marked. The campground is on a small lake. The sites are gravel and dirt, long enough that we didn't need to disconnect, and reasonable level. The owner is very pleasant. It was hot and humid when we were there so we couldn't go out and enjoy the lake. There is a laundry but it is locked so we were unable to use it. There are quite a few permanent residents but the park is kept clean and seems to be well-run. It was easy enough to get in and out.

We had a pull-through site with no cable TV. The cable only had 12 stations so we weren't missing much. Some of the back-in sites backed up to the Wind River, which was pretty. And it's obvious how the river got its name: the area is quite windy. We were advised not to leave our awning up. The wifi at this campground didn't work very well, either. When we mentioned it to the manager, we were told that it should work fine because we were close to the wifi antenna. Interesting but not very helpful. The campground is walking distance from the small shopping district which has some nice restaurants and galleries. I guess the price reflects accessibility to Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks, though it is more than an hour's drive to both.

This is a decent campground if you don't mind being in the middle of nowhere. The sites are gravel and large. It's kind of like camping in a big gravel parking lot. The laundry facilities are clean and the machines worked well, but $2 for a regular-size washer and dryer is a little high. The campground doesn't offer any discounts at all, which is why we only stayed one night.

This campground is very well-run. It is clean and everything works. The sites are gravel, long enough to park our fifth-wheel trailer and truck with room to spare. Some have a tree for a bit of shade; ours did not. There aren't a lot of channels but there are enough and they are free over-the-air. The wifi worked well as did Verizon cell service. There is an indoor pool which was delightful. Casper is a big enough town to have plenty of shopping, restaurants, and other businesses. The nightly rate for this campground is a little high given the location (it's not near any of the national parks, for example) but we felt we got our money's worth.

This campground is well-maintained. It is convenient to the freeway (I-15) but the road noise is minimal. Our space was too short to leave our truck connected to our fifth-wheel (28') but there was room to park it sideways behind the trailer. The place is kept very clean. The pool is heated and was lovely. The wifi worked really well. They have a small convenience store with the basics, and the owner was only too happy to tell us about nearby local businesses we should frequent. The price is a bit high for being kind of nowhere, but at least we felt like we were getting what we paid for. There's not much to do but it is a peaceful place. We would come back if we were in the area.

Like many parks in the Thousand Trails network, this one is old and in need of maintenance. As other reviewers mentioned, there was a storm in February and they STILL haven't fixed the WiFi or reopened the pool. Since the park doesn't have much in the way of amenities, that's really inexcusable. And there was no warning when we made the reservation about these things not being available. We truly wonder whether continuing to pay for our membership in Thousand Trails makes sense since they don't seem to be putting any money into their parks. The sites are gravel and so narrow that we had to park our truck elsewhere. It might have fit our space if our neighbors hadn't parked their truck on their space - which of course they are entitled to do. The woman who checked us in directed us to an end space that she said had more shade than some other spaces but honestly I didn't see a tree anywhere nearby. The roads are narrow and the turns tight. Like many of the older parks, there are no pull-through sites. There's no cable TV but we were able to pick up quite a few broadcast channels. Verizon Internet worked well. The dog area was reasonable.

This park is very remote. The nearest shopping is in Hollister, 12 miles and a half hour drive away. There is a small store on the property but the stock is very limited and it was closed most of the time. Make sure your fuel and refrigerator are full before you come. It's a large park with most spaces well separated. There are a lot of trees so it's pretty. But it's badly in need of maintenance as other reviewers have said. Probably half of the electrical boxes are not working. The man who checked us in said this year's budget allows for one restroom to be remodeled but all six need to be. An electrician is supposedly coming. Stay tuned... There are a lot of full-timers with Thousand Trails memberships who go back and forth between this campground and the one in Morgan Hill every 21 days. Not much to be done about that. We heard that a new park manager started just before we arrived and that much of the staff here quit. Maybe that's why on Tuesday they delivered the previous Thursday's newspaper to our door. Funny or sad? You decide. Wifi at our site was for a fee from Tengo. Verizon LTE worked well and there was adequate cell phone service as well.

We stayed here once before. It was certainly worth the 50% discount through Passport America. This is a nice, clean, well-run park. My only complaint is that they still haven't fixed their wifi. I had to walk to the office from our campsite (which was within view) to connect my iPad to the network. It disconnected by the time I walked back, and while I was able to connect to the network again, it never worked. Considering that this park charges at the high end of usual rates for th area, I'm surprised that they still haven't fixed their wifi problem. It's not a luxury anymore.

This is a nice, clean, well-run campground. Our discount was through RPI, which means we only get to stay in certain spaces that are back-ins. The pull-through so are reserved for customers paying by other means. Our only complaint about the campground is that the sewer connection is awkwardly placed so the only way to connect to them is with a 20-foot hose. The wifi worked well.

I have reviewed this park before and am sad to say it hasn't improved with age. We stay here because we are members of Thousand Trails and the price is right. This is one of the older Thousand Trails parks and it doesn't appear that any attempt is being made to maintain or improve it. It is full of permanent and long-term residents which is never a good quality in an RV park. There is no sewer in this park, so you either have to use the park's showers (which we almost never do) or go to the dump station every few days. That is a serious negative, and is the reason we never stay more than a few days. The only decent spots in the park are in the last few rows which have been upgraded with 50 amp service. Even with our membership it still costs us $5 a night to park in one of those spots, and we don't use 50 amp service. But it's the only place we can park where we're not among people who live in their RVs, some of whom are just poor and some who are highly inconsiderate. Even there, our picnic table looked like it was original to the park, and I don't mean "vintage." Park staff are friendly and helpful. They are doing the best they can with a bad situation. Whoever owns this park should be ashamed for letting it get so run down. This place could be a jewel, given the location just south of San Jose. It doesn't reflect well on the park owners or the Thousand Trail network.

This is a very well-run park near the CA-120 entrance to Yosemite National Park. It is clean, the staff are courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful. They don't charge extra for parking in a 50-amp site unlike some TT parks. We had a spot backing up to the Tuolumne River which was gorgeous although mosquitoes were abundant. There is NO cell phone service in the park (ours is Verizon). The wifi was only available in the office because of construction in the lodge (normally wifi is offered in both places) but it worked well. Unlike some of the Thousand Trails parks which are getting old and run down, this park is being maintained and upgraded. We would definitely stay here again.

This used to be a KOA a few hundred years ago. Now it's a dusty field with hookups. There's concrete separating the sites, which are fairly close together and no trees for privacy or shade. We stayed here before and since the last time they've added quite a few park models in some of the sites, up on blocks. Apparently there are more people working around Ozona, Texas than in the past. The price is up, although the woman at the motel who checked us in insisted that the price hasn't increased in 5 years. For a parking space in a dusty lot with full hookups, cable, and wifi, it's not ridiculous. They give you a 15% discount at the restaurant with your site. There is nothing around and the fuel at the nearby station is way more expensive than others we passed. For one night it's fine. I can't imagine staying longer.

This is one of the nicer Thousand Trails parks we've stayed in. It's old, as they all are, but fairly well-maintained. The sites are grass, and we could see big gouges in some where people had had trouble getting out after a big rain because the ground was so soft. Only about half the sites have sewer, so they offer a "honey wagon" service for people who have sites without. We chose a site near the river that didn't have sewer and they offered us a free pump-out during our 6-night stay, which was very nice. Their electric service is subject to brownouts. We were unable to use our microwave during our stay because there wasn't enough power to run it. Our electric space heater and my hair tools worked fine. They have excellent wifi in the clubhouse. Also lots of activities. People here were very friendly, helpful. It's a nice setting, with a walking path along the river. Not much to do but there are restaurants and shops in nearby Wauchula for basics. We would stay here again.

This is an old park, used to be a KOA. Not much else to choose from in the area. Roads are narrow, sites are quite decent, wifi worked well. Wouldn't want to stay here for the winter season just because it's pretty crowded, but would stay here again for a few nights.
