A great government park. It is a wilderness environment with well spaced sites, fire rings, and tables. RV sites with electricity are paved, tent sites are gravel and no electric. We arrived on a holiday weekend mid-afternoon and there were a number of RV sites to accommodate our 30' trailer. There is access to NP hiking trails direct from the campsite.

Date of Stay:

This was mainly an overnight stop for us. It has convenient access from I-26. The campground is very tight, but it is setup well given the area that it is in. We arrived after hours (but had reserved prior) and found our named site card at the later check in box. We obtained our pull-through site and setup urban camp.

This a last-minute overnight stop for us and it worked well for that. This RV park is behind a Shriner hall but the signage from the road is very good regarding the park. There is an on-site caretaker of the park and there is an access gate on the property. In all, this is a HUGE campground. Rallies here could hold hundreds. There are a number of pavilions and there is also a lakeside banquet hall (indoors) that could easily accommodate a hundred or so people. The main part of the campground has full hookups and is undergoing additional improvements. Site are not really delineated, so you pretty much park on grass however you like which also gets you within reach of the hookups. This is a no frills place, but for overnight or visiting Macon it is a gem. They give you a 50% discount to $16 is you have ANY RV membership (not just passport america). I'll take that price for full hookups anytime.

This is plain and simple a great RV park. Full hookups, level sites and all in a state park / nature preserve with a dedicated beach for state park / RV presort patrons. The sites are relatively small by state park standards, but each one is very nice and there is a lot of foliage to make your site private enough from the next one. The only bummer of this park is getting to the beach and it's a small enough annoyance that I didn't knock down my rating. From the campground, the walk (one way) to the beach is around half a mile. The path to there is paved and there is plenty of bike parking at the beach so if you have a bike, you're golden. The walk is fine as well as long as you are ready for it. We walked it 3 times in our 2 night stay at the park. Don't count on the park tram, though. It only runs every 2 hours. There are laundry facilities on site and we used them. Very nice.

We used this park as an overnight stop en-route to our next destination. It is overall a nice campground, but we did not explore any amenities or the area. There were full hookups including cable. The $30/night rate is special for anyone (no memberships needed) so long as you are stopping in after the office has closed (self-registration and payment by cash or check) and for one night. This fit our purpose perfectly and therefore rated 9 for us. Would have been a 10 if the sites were more level and paved.

This was a great park overall. Large level sites, picnic table, etc. No sewer on-site, but the dump station was very well laid out and nice. TV reception and Verizon cell service was excellent. Main reason for 7 rating and not 9: the sites are not assigned. You reserve "a" site...any site. So when you go to the campground itself, you have to circle around until you settle on a site with proper size for your rig. There is no restrictions where tenters are allowed to setup vs. RVs vs. big rigs. The 50A pull-throughs were all taken by tenters by the time we got there (mid-afternoon). The sites should at least be reservable by type (i.e. short length, 30A, 50A, pull-through). Someone with a triple axle 5th wheel or a bus that arrived at 8pm on a Friday would be hard-pressed to fit into a remaining site; if not impossible. This park charges a one-time parking fee in addition to the campsite fee. This is a peeve of mine, so I knocked down my rating for this, too. If you are camping and there is a parking fee, it should be included in the camping fee, not an additional "surprise" charge when you check in.

The rate reflects weekly rate divided by 7. This is a long-term park and not really meant for a weekend outing. That being said, when one wants to visit the area for 3 or more nights, the weekly cost of $135/week becomes equal or better than 3 nights at a normal commercial campground at $45/night. We were greeted by the park host on a golf cart as soon as we pulled in. He escorted us to our site, helped me move the picnic table, and then gave me advice on getting into the site. The sites are state park-ish. Electric and water hookup. Some sites are more spacious and typically have long-term residents on them. Riverside sites are all taken, so don't expect one of those for a weekend. There are some really long term units there, but they are are few. No shady characters. Most campers are full timers up north for the summer. There is a dump station near the exit of the park. There is a picnic table and a fire ring at each site. Downtown Cincinnati is about a 15 minute drive from the park.

The best thing about this site is location. You are in the heart of St Louis and just blocks from major attractions and food. Everything else is a short drive. The park is recently under new management (same family, just next generation) and there have been improvements. Most notably is clean up of the park and removal of old/non-used RVs. Also, one now gets "two" sites for one. One for your RV, the other for your vehicle. This is a nice change. Plenty of space for everything. The hookups are full (sewer at every site). The pool is small but very nice. The downsides: It's all asphalt; little grass and no trees. The owner claimed that the WiFi was recently upgraded and all sites should have great connection. This was true in the off-hours. There needs to be some work done with the router to limit the bandwidth so that it doesn't get bogged down in the daytime hours. This is my third time coming to the park and it won't be the last.

This is an RVC park. I've been to RVC properties before and they are great. I chose this campground just because it was an RVC property. With that comes the expectation (from past experience) that everything will be perfect regardless of site. This park has seasonal / long term people living in it. The campers are packed in extremely tight. Most annoying of all was that my site (and those in the same area) had the sewer connection UNDER the camper when parked. Not just sorta under...but not-accessible under. When I pointed this out to the parking escort, his suggestion was "just bring your bumper back to here." Sure...and leave my tongue in the middle of the road. When I pointed that out to him, he only had comments about how he didn't lay out the park and I could pull forward and dump when I left. The WiFi was better than most campgrounds that we stayed at on this trip, but not stellar. It was still less frustrating to use the cellular data connection on our phones than the park WiFi. On the plus side, the location of the park is great. The laundry facility was great and had commercial equipment. The pool was nice and well kept. For the price and amenities (and value / expectation of an RVC resort), I will not be returning to this park.

Nightly price includes daily "park entrance" fee. The park was in general a place that I would expect for a state park, but the price is on the level of a regular RV campground. There is electric hookups and a dump/water station. There's a nice picnic table with sun shelter at each site as well as a fire ring with grate. The main reason for not higher than a 7 was the surprise daily fee in addition to the camping fee. The park is rather run down despite being maintained by the state. All roads are gravel and dusty. But, the electricity was strong and sites were spacious and well spread out. When the National Park campground is full, this is the best alternative short of a commercial campground. But, maybe that is why they can charge what they do.

Overall this is a nice place, but when when an RV park calls itself a "resort", I expect excellence. The pool was nice and clean; the hot tub the same. The laundry room was very good as well. The part that kept me from giving the park higher than a 7 rating was that WiFi is advertised, but there's no throughput. You can connect to the WiFi, but significant data doesn't move...even late at night or near the office. The sites are also very close together. The sites (in the section that I was in) were so short that it was not possible to hitch up in a straight line with the trailer. Parking was interesting upon disconnection. I needed to use all of my leveling blocks in order to level the trailer and put down the stabilizers. Overall, the location is on a main road and has easy access to Mesa Verde Natl Park. If I went again I would pay for a premium site that is longer and flatter. But at a "resort" park, I expect all sites to be level and have enough room to disconnect and park easily.

We stayed at this park since we planned to stay two nights and to visit both Canyonlands and Arches from one campsite. The campground is in the middle of nowhere (a plus in my opinion). The only complaint is the entry road and roads within the campground are dusty and gravel. Anytime someone drove in or out, there was a big dust cloud turned up. Other than that, very good and well worth the $15/night. The sites are spacious and level and there is a nice fire pit and picnic table. The north entrance of Canyonlands was about 10 minutes away. Arches entrance was about 30 min.

This park is incredible for being a no-hookup campground. Upon arriving, I really thought I was at the wrong place. We were able to find a site without problem (arrived about 2pm) and setup camp. The campground has easy access to the national park attractions and hiking trails. Some trails and the visitors' center require driving to get there. The evening program at the campground led by a national park ranger was excellent. The dump station and water fill area were level and easy to get into and out of.

This is more of a tenting campground, but can accommodate RVs up to about 30' in length. I went to Bryce expecting no hookups so the low rating is not for that. My main beef is that Bryce is supposed to be first come first serve for sites. I was directed by a ranger to the north campground since I have a 30' bumper pull. Upon driving through north campground, I found the biggest and best sites marked as reserved. There were no remaining sites big enough for me so we went to sunset campground. Here, there were many sites but none were level (although they easily could be) and the roads were dirt (little to no gravel). There is an area designated as "no tents" because the sites are larger and can accommodate RVs up to 34' in some cases. This was not enforced. Upon paying for the site, the RV cost is $30 where a tent is $15. But there's no hookups...so why is an RV more than a tent? The dump station is a separate fee, so no bonus for RVs there. If I were to return, I would camp at a commercial park outside the national park. The nat'l park shuttle buses run out to the town and campgrounds / hotels there to make pickups.

I give this an 8 because it's not full hookup and sites are close together. Other than that, it is great. With the temperatures in the area, it is nice that the national park campground has sites with electricity. The Virgin River flows along the edge of the park and many people were beating the mid-day heat by lounging in the river. Definitely a bonus to the campground. The sites are very close so if you are sitting outside you are going to hear everyone else's music and conversation. It's still better than any private/commercial campground. Location to the Zion park buses is unmatched. I can't imagine staying outside of this park. The vehicle entry gate to the park gets a line early in the AM and the parking lots fill quickly. When you are camping in the park though you simply walk maybe 1/4 mile to the visitor center. No traffic, no backups. There is a long line in the morning for the shuttle buses. Hikers like to get moving early.
