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.

Despite being a no-hookup campground, we stayed here with our travel trailer. We were only staying two nights so no hookups were not a big deal. Even with 100+ temps during the day, the site was pleasant with some shade and at night the temp dropped to about 55 so sleeping with just the windows open was fine. The campground is tight to navigate with a truck + 30' bumper pull, but the site descriptions on the park website are very accurate with respect to RV length allowable. Our site was excellent and secluded despite the campground being full. There was easy walking access to the shuttle bus as well as the grocery store and a couple restaurants.

It's a KOA, so it's expensive and campers are like sardines. But, given the other options in the area I was OK with it. The pool is large and well kept. There is an older playground, but it is in great shape. Laundry facilities cost roughly $3 wash & dry, but worked nicely. Perhaps the best feature of this park was the "restaurant". It's a shack but they have an all you can eat pancake breakfast special. I think it was $3/ person. They can crank out good pancakes quickly. They are cooked on a flat top with real batter, not shake & pour from a bottle. If you stay there, you have to go there for breakfast. Other than that, overpriced in my opinion for the space and ambiance, but again probably the best in the area. The campground is convenient to shopping and Petrified Forest Nat'l Park.

Convenience off of the highway and to Camping World next door are major positives for this park. The price is great for full hookups. There is wifi, but there wasn't enough bandwidth even to read emails or facebook. I didn't try to go closer to the office. I was only 3 sites away. The pool was nice although it closes early (before dusk when we were there). The entire campground is one large gravel area. There are small trees. As usual with a commercial campground sites are close together. Nevertheless, a good stay in a convenient location at a great price.

It is amazing that places like this are available for free. No hookups, but the view of the lake / dam was great. Picnic tables, elevated grills, sun shelters were present at each site. Sites were pretty much wherever you could fit your rig in. Larger rigs have limited availability, but there were two or three fifth wheels there. We put our 30' bumper pull in on a cliff-side site. It's about a 15 minute drive from Fritch, so get your necessities before heading to the campground. We stayed one night here after visiting the nearby (~30 min) Flint quarries nat'l park.

I give this a 9 for the purpose that it served for me personally. We needed an overnight stop along I-40 and this was right off of the highway and cheap. There are 2 camping areas at El Reno Lake. This one is more for RVs and you get electric, water, and dump. The other area is more for tents and pop ups, but RVs can fit there, too. $15/night for elec only. We opted for the $20 full hookup. The lake is directly next to the park and it could be tough to get a site on a weekend. We came in on a Sunday night at dusk and there were plenty of sites. Since we were only on an overnight stay, it was perfect. This is a no-reservation, put your check in the box type place.

The greatest part of this park is that it is directly on the Mississippi river. They have free laundry and the machines are nice ones. The sites are no frills and in many cases no shade, but you're there for the river. The bugs are horrid, so take your spray. We like staying here one or two nights. There are no attractions other than the river and Memphis, so it's not a great long term location.
