I gave this a ten for one simple reason. I left my wallet on the hood of my Jeep (I'm famous for stupid things like this) and it managed to stay there unbeknownst to me until I swung out of the RV park and it went flying, again unbeknownst to me. One of the staff saw this happen, retrieved the wallet, left it at registration and called my cell (which was in the rig, another good move) to tell me they had it. Got to Camping World, which is five minutes down the road, at which time I couldn't find my wallet and realized what I had done. Huge panic but a very happy ending, one I am extremely thankful for. With that said, I'd otherwise have given this place an eight. I hate that they won't accept mail and packages. I hate how they park the rigs so they share the patio area, and not a large patio area at that. If that's not your cup of tea either, I'd suggest one of the corner patio sites at the back of the park. We had K-14 and were very happy with it. I hate how the perimeter sites are too small for many of the RVs they park there so all of their toads are parked IN the street and it makes for navigating your rig a challenge. I love their showers. Spacious, real hot water and the shower head must be the same one firefighters use. I love garbage pick up in the morning. I love its convenience to Golden, such a cute town, and its proximity to Denver. The utilities worked fine, the WiFi was O.K., not great, and we had very good satellite reception. The sites have concrete pads but many of them are not flat. They had 7-8 TV channels listed in their brochure, not sure if it was cable or over the air.

A bit pricey for a no frills KOA used mainly as an overnighter along I-80. About five miles from Cheyenne, seven miles east of I-25. Pilot Truck stop right across the road from RV park. Roads and sites are gravel. We had to park our toad sideways at the back of our site. Utilities worked fine. Cable, but a number of the channels didn't work. WiFi was not very good even with us being parked under the repeater. Little shade. Dusty and windy. Restrooms were nice with private showers. Decent pet area.

This is a destination RV park where a family can enjoy the many included amenities without ever leaving. If that is your plan, this is a great park and worth the money. If all of those amenities have no interest to you, you will be paying a huge premium staying here. The entrance is long and paved and a security guard checks you in. The registration area is large and staff is friendly. a host takes you to your site. The interior roads are gravel and narrow, made worse by cars parking in the road at the perimeter back in sites. We had a corner spot with a huge paved patio, wrought iron furniture, fire pit and BBQ grill, but no grass. There is a concrete pad large enough to get a big rig situated on it, but the front and back of the site is gravel. The utilities worked fine. WiFi was not great. There were many restrooms and they were very nice with very spacious showers. The lake is nice and you can walk your dog around the half mile perimeter.

We stayed here two weeks and had a fabulous time. The entrance, especially the second one if coming from Hill City, is very impressive. We were in a very long pull through site in the Line Camp section. Very nice, level, gravel site with a very large grassy patio area with fire ring and picnic table. We looked out over a huge meadow, one of several in this very spacious RV park. The utilities worked good and we were able to get good satellite reception. The Line Camp section has little to no shade. Lower Ranch is much the same and the other sections are much more forested. The pool is beautiful and there is SO much open space. There were two gas pumps but neither worked. Propane was a rip, charged $18.50 for 2.5 gallons. Restrooms were very nice, but only two for the entire RV park so you'll be walking a bit unless you're staying in Base Camp or Upper Ranch. The RV park is on a well and the water was a bit cloudy. They allowed RVer's to park extra vehicles, trailers and ATVs on the grass patio area and on the edges of the meadow, which is a bit unsightly for neighbors. WiFi stunk. Don't let the promise of possible coverage influence your site selection since we couldn't get much better coverage sitting in front of the office.

Bring your bug spray. Lots of bees and mosquitos at all hours. Nice comfortable RV park. Nearby train blows its horn pretty good around 12:21 a.m. Much of the park is permanently occupied. Lots of trees make satellite reception iffy. No cable. We had a beautiful, long, level end site with a patio side grassy area large enough to hold a concert. The roads and sites are hard pack dirt and recent rain had messed them up a bit but they were good with filling in with gravel and rock. We lost power twice. Really low voltage readings. Not sure if RV park doesn't have enough capacity during peak times. Water pressure was good, not great. We were able to get good satellite reception at our site. Park is nicely maintained, the office area is very nice with lots of flowers and the pool is very inviting. Restrooms are dated but we're fine and clean.

This review is influenced by the poor weather. It had apparently rained heavily the day before and the roads and sites were a mess. Our site was a mud bog with little streams running through it. We have a big rig and were placed in the B section, which are pull thru sites with no site development at all. Just a dirt spot, a few weeds for grass and a picnic table. Sites are long but fall off on the ends. There are other pull through sites, thinking the A section, that are nicer but shorter and share a patio. The one thing that made this stop good was killer WiFi. Utilities worked fine. Restrooms were clean. No cable.

We have stayed at 90+ RV parks and never once has it been a State park. Either they couldn't accommodate large rigs, no full hook ups or vault-only toilets had us looking elsewhere. What a totally wonderful surprise. The park is beautiful and the campgrounds are thoughtfully laid out. We stayed in the Plover loop. More open and sunny than the other loops and also a longer walk to the restrooms. The Plover loop sites are carved out of the sides of the road and are long, level, spacious and pull through. The sites are hard pack dirt. Some have views of the lake. The utilities worked great, the water pressure was fine and the satellite reception was prefect. The restrooms are as nice as any private RV park.

An otherwise lovely stay at a lovely park was ruined when 48 hours after departing we received an email saying they were charging us an additional fee for damage to the site we stayed in. Despite nothing in the regulations against placing a portable satellite dish on the grass, we were penalized for doing so because it yellowed the grass. After a ten day stay and paying over $450 CD, we thought this was petty and unfair. The satellite dish was open and obvious on a corner site and staff had every opportunity to suggest we move it to another location off the grass. With that said, this is a beautiful, well maintained RV park with a lovely setting just off the Bow River. There is a mile long off leash walking/bike path along the Bow River with access from the RV park. Our site, #114, was a wonderful corner site with a large grassy patio area and privacy shrubs. The sites are a bit tight on the driver's side with mature trees making it a little challenging to get slides out. Patio sides are spacious and there is a gravel cutout for toad if need be. Sites are gravel and level. Utilities worked fine. Habitable tents were allowed in addition to RVs at sites and made for overcrowding to neighboring sites. Wide, paved interior roads. No cable, 5 over the air channels and WiFi that worked well except it bumped you off constantly. Restrooms were nice but $2 per five minutes for shower was ridiculous. No highway noise. Close to downtown and shopping.

Based on ratings and reviews, we we're expecting much and that's what we got, so it was fine for an overnight stay. Staff was friendly. Sites were gravel and mostly level. Utilities were not so good. We had to go under our rig and to the adjacent site and share their pedestal to get 50 amp. Receptacle was a good 3 feet off the ground and horizontal, not vertical, so we had to prop our cord/surge protector on the picnic table to hold the weight. Sewer was accessed under a plywood cover. Water pressure was about 35 psi. No cable or over the air. The shining star was the WiFi: awesome, and what a surprise. The bathroom was old and needs work.

Expected more based on GS rating. Sharp turn off frontage road to enter the RV park. Must own the road. Leaving the RV park and heading east requires a u turn through a turnout. Registration queue was nice. Staff was not very welcoming. We were assigned to the Arizona section in the back where most of the bigger rigs were located. Paved interior roads take you to a huge uninviting gravel area with one tree per site and otherwise not a bit of landscaping or grass. Sites were muddy but otherwise level. The area when you first enter the RV park is nicer with grass and more trees. No cable, no over the air and no Free WiFi despite what they tell you. Tried several times at office to get on and couldn't. Utilities worked fine. We were in the back row with highway right above us. Very noisy. Showers were not free but restrooms were nice. For what they charge, would not come back here.

A rough R.V. park, suitable for an overnight stay. Only a couple sites suitable for big rig and tow. GPS took us on circuitous route. Utilities were fine.

Nice location 6 miles from town and a mile off the highway. Registration queue was spacious. Staff was friendly but a bit disorganized. Think we had someone new learning the ropes. Sites are gravel, level and long. Grass on the patio side. Utilities worked fine. WiFi was good. Restrooms are in the main building and were spotless. Not much shade but good for satellite reception. Perimeter of the park has extended stay, a couple were junky but overall not a problem.

This is a lovely RV park full of gardens, flowers, grass and trees. Very inviting entrance and office. Staff was friendly. Roads are narrow and made worse by shrubs and trees. Most sites are well shaded with mature pine trees. Sites are gravel, long and mostly level. Utilities worked fine. Our power pedestal and water were right in the middle of the site next to us....felt bad for them. Restrooms were spotless. The ones closest to the office seemed a bit dated.....the ones further down were modern and very nice. WiFi did not work well at all for us.

A great location about a mile from the interstate with an Albertson's just down the street and Bozeman a half hour away. A narrow road takes you to a tight turn into the park. The park is laid out nicely. Good spacing. Grass patio areas. Sites are gravel and mostly level. We got a lot of rain one night and there must have been a sinkhole on our site because our left rear sank about six inches (Site #B4.) Utilities worked fine. Basic cable. WiFi was very good. No problem getting satellite reception. Clean, modern "private" bathrooms, each with shower, toilet and sink. Staff was a bit overbearing. Big on rules, and they were constantly circling the park in their golf carts looking for infractions. Reminded me of my HOA back home! A bit pricey.

This RV park is great, made even better by our previous stop at the National Park campground inside Grand Teton, which was very nice but a bit primitive and offered no WIFI, cable, over the air or cell. We have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place.......except the time they choose to clean the restrooms. They are all closed between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. We found this very inconvenient. You would think they'd pick a time like 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. when most everyone is still out exploring Yellowstone. The location is perfect, just a mile from the west entrance to Yellowstone. The registration area is huge and the staff are super friendly. The roads are paved and wide. The sites are gravel, long and level. Very spacious. Lots of grass and just the right amount of trees. Most sites are pull through but there were some back ins along the perimeter. Utilities worked fine. Decent cable with about a dozen channels. No problems getting satellite. WiFi was really good most of the time but did bog down once in a while. The park is laid out very nicely, with restrooms scattered throughout. The restrooms were modern and spotless. We stayed in site 200, which is a corner spot with a huge grassy area on the driver side. A real gem.
