A great campground near I-40 and the Petrified Forest National Park. It is not fancy but the sites are all 100' pull-through and the utilities were good. Friendly staff and free coffee and muffins in the morning at the office. They also have an amazing display of petrified tree sections adjacent to the office. It is a great stop along the way for a day or two. Not a luxury park with a pool and all.

We were traveling with a caravan group so I am not certain of the rate. We arrived and were assigned a poor site on the south side. Unlevel and small for our 30' RV and tow car. Back in. The only spot I could level left us about 25' from the sewer and other connections out by the road. Contacted the park to get another site and they said no and the Camp Host swore at me multiple times and told me if I did not like the site I should leave. He also said the unlevel site was not his fault. Does that make it mine? WiFi was marginal at best. The last night we were there, a heavy rain came through and flooded all the premium sites closer to the highway. Stay away from this park. Poor customer support and facilities.

A gem off of I-84. We overnighted here and the campground was not busy. Spacious, well laid out sites with paved level pads. The lawns were well maintained and numerous dumpsters were located around the site. The dump station was easy to access and use. My only complaint is the State Park Wi-Fi system. You could not find out what the rates were until you registered. In these days of information theft and re-selling of information by web sites, a basic price list should be available before you divulge information to these services. Wake Up Idaho State Parks, you can do better.

An immaculate campground with cement pads and manicured lawn areas. Clubhouse is also topnotch and while not used, the pool looked clean and inviting. Traffic noise was noticeable but not overly objectionable for our site and equipment. The smell however was almost nauseating. I am not sure if it was the sewage treatment plant about 1 mile south or the nearby refineries or both but it was disgusting in the evening and nights (2). I think the owners and management really try to keep a great RV park but with the smelly neighbors, I would keep on traveling.

After over 2 months on the road this would be our favorite campground so far. The owners run a high-quality campground with lots of hands-on involvement to maintain their high standards. The focus is on their camping cabins, but they have a number of serviced sites. We spent one week onsite. The sites are spacious and level with lots of trees to provide privacy. To say the owners are friendly and helpful is an understatement. I needed to find a dentist, they took care of locating and booking an appointment. Touring recommendations were always available. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it as a point to tour this beautiful island.

A relatively small park that has morphed into a hotel and restaurant. Our site was near the beachfront which was great! Level and probably the best Wi-Fi so far on our trip. Great spot to use as a base for touring the fortress and surrounding area. We attended the onsite "Beggars Bangquet". It was a lot of fun and worth the $$. A relatively simple campground, but was perfect for us (no kids), quite and a beautiful shoreline.

We spent one night here in transit. It was a last minute booking when the ferry from Argentia was cancelled and we had to drive back for the Port-Aux-Basques ferry. They did not have any 3 service sites available. They gave us a pull-through so that we would not have to disconnect since heavy rain was forecasted. A nice consideration on their part. Very pleasant management and the park appeared nice although our time there did not allow us to explore it fully. We would stay there again.

We spent one night in this park as a transit stop. We had a pull through site that was level and the spacing between sites was adequate. There are some seasonals in the back, but it appears to cater largely to people in transit across this vast province. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We spent 4 nights here exploring St. Johns and area. We had a pull through site near the office building. Wi-Fi is limited to the area immediately around the office/washroom/laundry building. The campground is clean, well organized and tiered so that everyone has a view of the lake. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We were glad we chose this campground for our stay. The laundry and washrooms/showers highlight the fact that this park is relatively new, well constructed and maintained. We would stay here again and recommend it.

The owners were friendly and helpful. It is a great spot to use as a base to tour Lanse Aux Meadows and the St. Anthony area. The site we were assigned near the entrance was not very level, but the owner made some lumber available to help us to finish leveling. The Wi-Fi has very limited range, but we were able to use it at our site. Lots of seasonal campers in the main area and most of the transients seemed to be near the entrance where we were. No sewer connections available so we used the sani-station when we left - it was easily accessible. Not luxury, but comfortable with free showers and a good laundry.

Convenient, spacious site in the core of the Gros Morne Park area. Great for local site seeing. The campground seems well maintained. Probably the most level site we have encountered on our trip. Subtle delination of your site with yellow rocks (we had a back-in 30A full service site). Adeuqate site with a good tree buffer behind us to separate us from sites on the other side. Friendly, helpful staff and the cleanest, most efficient laundromat we have seen on our long journey. Wi-Fi was spotty one night but generally good. A great site for exploring Gros Morne, We spent 3 mights here but needed more!

Built on a hillside at an old quarry location, this is a great site for a couple of nights. Tremendous view of the bridge and Bras D'Or lake. Adjacent to the Cabot Trail (way over-rated in our view). The site is an easy 20 minute drive to the Newfoundland Ferry Terminal. Very friendly, helpful staff lead you to your site, deliver firewood, etc. Wi-Fi worked great. Check out the coal mining museum in Glace Bay!

The park staff was friendly and helpful. This is a busy little park north of Halifax. Sites are small and close together. We spent 7 nights in the park. When it rains there are a lot of areas within the park which accumulate water as the drainage is poor. To me it appeared that they packed too many sites into a small area. In addition they rent Cruise Canada RVs from the site which increases traffic congestion, particularly in the area around the office.

Friendly owners in a well-kept facility. We spent 3 nights in a back-in waterfront site. The site was spacious and the view awesome. Wi-Fi was good. Laundry was clean but a bit slow. The only problem we had was inadequate power supply. My surge protector on the power pole kept tripping whenever we used significant power due to low voltage. Be careful if your rig does not have a surge protector or at least an add-on like we have. We went to a Music by the Bay (aka Kitchen Party at a nearby restaurant which was awesome). This is a great location to explore the Acadian region west of Digby.

We spent 3 nights exploring the area in and around the park. We had one of the fully serviced pull-through sites, it worked well for us. Other than getting our rig leveled (the utility connections are not in the most level areas of the site. Wi-Fi in a National Park was a plus, but the signal was weak which I solved with a repeater. A great location to explore the area. Don't miss Hopewell Rocks!
