If we were not on a trip with others to visit Canyonlands National Park, I would not have stayed here.......it is crowded, not level and just a small parking lot with hook ups. The town of Montecello is cute but this campground felt too much like it was thrown together with a minimal budget. Come to find out, our reservation was not secure and we almost lost our site because we were not there at an early enough hour. Earlier that day, I informed the management that we would not be there until after 6pm and to please hold the site for us. Management called at 5:45 to ask if we were coming because there was someone there wanting a camping site. Thank goodness, we had cell service or otherwise we may not have had a place to stay even though I reserved the site, 3 months in advance.

This was a one night stay while we were on the road but I was surprisingly pleased with the area. It is dry camping and so with some preparations, I think it would be a great campground for a few days. I liked the amount of space between sites. It is not very private just because of the vegetation type of this high desert area. But it felt like old time camping. Will come back if ever in the area.

Camping in state run facilities make me happy.....the sites are typically spaced enough to have some privacy, the facilities are usually clean and work. There is a balance between amenities and nature. We were at Fool Hollow for 3 nights and loved every minute......even with the rain. Water and electric is really all we need. Will come back here again.

This was one of our first experiences in dry camping. Wonderful experience. Vault toilets but host kept them immaculate. Wish all facilities were that clean. Campground is perched in the eastern Sierras above Big Pine CA. It is a steep road to get to the campground but worth it. The Big Pine Creek was soothing and the altitude made for wonderful sleeping. Trees provided shade for most of the campsites. I will return to this campground even though the ascent and descent with the 16 foot trailer is nerve-wracking. Don't think I would do it with anything larger than 25 feet.

Beautiful views over looking the Mississippi, but the gnats were more than abundant. The facilities were well cared for. It served our purpose. I just wish we could have enjoyed the outdoors more. Nice treed park.

I conclude with the previous reviews. What I want to add is the unexpected surprise of the trails and scenery on those trails. This made being at this park that much better.

The park is abundantly treed maybe too much. Very little sunlight gets through the canopy consequently there is also an abundance of Mosquitos. The pluses to the park, very friendly and helpful staff and the park is located on the quiet site of the peninsula. The park also looks and feels like a campground not a parking lot.

This is a lovely state park with shaded sites for RV's in only Quail Loop. There are two other loops with electrical and water hookups but out in the open. However the views from those sites are beautiful. The park boasts of hiking trails some of which follow a creek and also the Verde River. The town of Cottonwood, especially the historic section, is charming and offers a couple of hours of wandering and sightseeing. The nearby town of Jerome is historically rich with tales of mining lore. We will definitely return to this area to camp.
