All other reviews are accurate. This is a great campground and location. The really beautiful pine trees that provide some privacy are a problem for 40 foot+ sizes. There is nothing more you could want in a campground, this place was great, and I'll stay here again when in the area.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here one night until I could move to another place. Only 30 amps and the two sets of speed bumps by the office are crazy; even at 3MPH. Sites are Very narrow, roads are all dirt with some stone, and sites are weeds and some stone. The dust from the roads is incredible and so is the wind up the hill,where all the "full hook-ups" are. I would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The park is clean and nice. Easy access for a 40 foot towing, but sites are VERY narrow with lots of big trees. Paved roads and level stone sites. Sewer in only some sites. You share power and water, whomever gets there first gets the 50 amp I guess. No room for awnings. Nice pet area. Quiet at night. For $50+ per night, I expect a full-hook-up, escort to site, curbside garbage p/u and a concrete patio. The KOA down the street looked like the sites were bigger when I drove through. The Wi-Fi here is awful and trees block satellite! My Verizon JetPak worked with no problems. When are campgrounds going to get out of the 90's, every person has at least two devices that need to be connected 24/7 to the internet? Next time I will go down the road one block and try them.

Easy access for 40 foot, paved sites, trees at all sites block satellite, all sites are on the lake. The park is nice, you can drive onto the beach, 5th Wheelers and Trailers were parked on sand of the beach. The park has a lighthouse to climb. The main road of the park had noisy traffic on it at night. The park is 15 minutes to the nearest town, which has everything you need. If I'm ever in that part of Nebraska again and need an overnight stop, it was worth the extra 15-20 minute drive to the park instead of Walmart in Scottsbluff.

My reservations always request a site that is good for satellite, I confirmed that upon check-in and was even asked if it was Direct TV or Dish. I got a site that was along the tree line and no satellite. After returning to the office and asking to change sites which took 30 minutes, I was allowed to move to any one of three open sites in the "Basecamp" area. The other two sites were never used during my stay - what is that all about? I don't need to use any of the facilities, but I'm sure they were all good. No WI-FI unless you're in the office area. For a "resort" at $50+ per night, that's bad. The campground has everything you need including a gas station. It's well maintained, large, wide and long sites and very quiet at night. Everywhere you drove you passed another campground, but none that I saw was as nice as this one, and the price reflects that. I would stay in this campground again.

Date of Stay:

At the entrance to Devils Tower - you can't get any closer unless you dry-camp just inside the park entrance. This is a full-service KOA; nice people, WIDE sites, wifi was "broken," and the office didn't know when it would be working again. There is no Verizon or T Mobile coverage in this area, which is in the middle of nowhere. Wifi in the office area was usable but very slow and irritating getting to the car with your laptop and driving to the office each time. The only thing this campground needs is paved roads and sites and wifi that works; they already have everything else, and I would stay here again if I ever wanted to come back to Devils Tower again for some reason.

First the good: The company the campground allows to wash and polish your RV is GREAT! The front desk is friendly but there is a lot of confusion in this very buys place. All amenities/utilities were good, no problem (in my site) for a 40ft back-in. The bad: No satellite coverage unless you can move your dish around on the ground, some sites had the dish almost in the road to get around the trees. Sites are very narrow and wifi is a total mess. Noise from the outside road is loud and 24/7. The neighborhood is a little sketchy and the week I was there a killing happened on the sidewalk a couple blocks away. The campground is very kid friendly, I have never heard so much crying and screaming while the parents watch, which starts at 7am and goes till after dark. My new 40ft Class A was the fourth wall of the neighbors fenced-in playpen for three in diapers and one under 10. I will not stay at this campground again.

Nice park, friendly staff and neighbors. It appears that most are here for the entire summer. Very easy access for 40 foot even in the back-in sites. Low water pressure. Wide level sites. The park has a Jeep group that does group drives on Mondays and it's free. Typical slow Wi-Fi, T-Mobile roams to ATT, and Verizon hot-spot works well. Very quiet 24/7. I would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Sites are Very narrow. No putting out awnings and slides can come within feet of your neighbor. Almost ever other pull-through has a tree blocking you from pulling-through. It took a long time to get into the site making the turn and not hitting the utilities. The pull-through sites, without trees blocking you, exit over a big drop from the site onto the road which is a dirt city road that runs through the campground. City trucks are on it 24/7. During my week there, most all backed out of the pull-through sites when leaving. Only a few sites allow satellite reception. I had to move after setting up for DirectTV. No problem with utilities. Sites were level. Campground is within walking of downtown and quiet at night except for the road in front of the pull-through sites. It is only about 12 feet in front of you which is just enough room to park a small car sideways. City water trucks attempt to keep the dust down, but the nearest car wash I found is in Ridgeway. The one place to get fuel in town listed diesel at $4.29 on 6-2013, fill up in Ridgeway before starting down the road to Ouray. Easy walk to the City Hot Springs and park. I would stay here again, but only if I could get into one of three sites.

Friendly check-in, easy access for 40 foot pulling a toad. Very small town but the campground has everything you need for one or two days. RV wash bay was nice. Some overhead tree branches need to be trimmed on the paved road to the narrow site where the big rigs were.

Date of Stay:

Would have got a 10 if it wasn't for the blowing dust. Ruby's is it's own city: everything you need including live entertainment, trolly train, horse drawn wagon rides, groceries, camping/RV supplies, propane, fuel, RV repair center across the street and just a few blocks to the entrance of Bryce. FYI, big rigs should try and get in the new far back area. Less shade, but more room, no tree stuff falling on you or interfering with satellite. FYI: Group tenting area is a secret code word for loud party area.

Date of Stay:

Friendly staff, entire campground is dirt with some gravel. The 80PSI water caused a few leaks and for the neighbor also. Had no cell service for any carrier, no WiFifrom the campground or from my Verizon Hotspot, and no NOAA weather radio reception. I have satellite so I don't know about antenna TV. There was good pizza at the store. The bathrooms are old and run down. There was some motorcycle noise from the main road. I came from Lake Powell area and was heading to Bryce, so I felt staying on the east side of Zion would make sense, except everything you do, including getting on the shuttle into the park, happens at the south entrance. That is where I will stay next time.

This campground has a great location and everything you need. Paved roads to site, site is gravel. The showers need to be updated. My site was hard to level with a 40 foot Class A. Quiet at night, no problems with utilities. Easy access for big rigs. I would stay at this campground again.

Date of Stay:

Easy access for any size rig; no problems with site; great location for visiting the Grand Canyon and a short walk to the market. If I came back, I would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Easy access, good location, friendly staff, 24/7 noise from the road, nice view of river, no problems with site. I would look to get out of the city next time.
