My findings of this campground seem to be different than other posters, to each their own I guess...We had high hope for this park after readying some of the reviews and seeing pictures on their website, well this is by far not the worst campground we've ever stayed in, it's sure not any place close to best or top 10. Let start with the good, nice check in staff, had lots of information about the area. Has a really nice gift store, something you don't find much anymore prices were fair, also sold beer and wine. Laundry room was clean but attached to office so only open when office is. There is a nice club house area with an amazing old fireplace. Bathroom and showers were very clean and large, but floor could make you dizzy (LOL). Easy on and off road. Now the bad, sites are close and laid out oddly, the side we stayed on was little better for spacing but the side that seemed to have all the people and full hook-up were very close, reach out and touch close. Lots of grass but most of it dead, in the 24 hours we were there the hose/sprinkler ran in the same few spots for hours. Some sights have BBQ grills and fire rings, fire rings made of old washer drums hate that. (Site 34 no fire ring or BBQ) There is a nice dog walking area but to get to it you have to walk across a bridge that seems unsafe to walk on. Beware that there are 2 sites that are right next to the bridge and if you get put in those you're going to have people walking right next to your site the whole time. There is no ATT cell in this area, they do have WFI but it really just worked ok... (But you are out in the middle of nowhere) This could be an amazing campground but at this time it's just ok, no place I would call relaxing or place to stay longer than a day or two.

This is an average campground, sites are close to each other, but not as bad as some places. Campground is under new ownership and they are working on cleaning things up. The bathrooms are clean, large laundry room with older machine that work fine, they just need a sign telling how much and how long they run. There is a nice little restaurant on site which we were planning on going there for dinner on a Saturday night in July after talking to owner the night before about how good the food was, but when we went for dinner there was a sign closed for the Saturday and Sunday, very disappointing that owner did not tell us that the day before...There is a putt putt golf course but it's old and not really playable. Short drive to Crater of the Moons. Room for big RV's ATT cell worked and free WFI worked ok. Arco is nice little town with small store, restaurants and gas stations.

This is not your typical KOA it's smaller than most and sits right on the Crystal River, there are some RV sights right on the river rest are just a short walk away. All RV sights have nice concrete patios and wrought iron picnic tables and grills and fire rings. Lots of room for big rigs, there is some traffic noise. New, very clean bath house, they do have a pool but it was closed due to damage, kind of bummer, but...My brother stayed in a cabins on the river, they are basic and bit spendy and was disappointed that while they do supply towels and dish soap there was no bar soap for shower, and for the price... They have washer and dryers but they don't work well at all, took me almost 3 hours to do 3 loads (only 2 washers and 3 dryers but one was out of order). Cost about $15.00 3 loads they did refund some. Nice little store and club house with pool table. They have free WFI and it works ok...no ATT cell. Was nice to find out that because it's private you don't need a fishing license to fish in front of the Resort. Short drive to sights in the area. I grew-up going to this resort, while the improvements are nice, I miss the old charm of the BRB resort.

Springville KOA This a VERY large KOA over 700 sight, they are close to each other as you would expect in a campground like this. Easy off and on highway, close to food and gas, long sites so no need to unhook. Clean bathroom and showers, nice pool. Nice concreate pads to park, no fire rings, and check in staff was friendly. Free WFI work fine ATT cell worked well. All in all just a place to spend the night.

After spending tons of time researching places to stay well visiting Dinosaur National Park, and coming up with nothing but "campgrounds" with people living in them etc...I did one last goggle search and came up with Steinaker State Park, little further from the park but SO WORTH IT!! What a hidden gem, many sites with full hook-up, pull throw, views, space between, nice tables with covers, clean bathrooms, no showers. Right on the reservoir, great for boating, fishing...and the views and sunset amazing! Do yourself a big favor and drive on by all those "campgrounds" in town and visit this Great State Park of UT. ATT cell work ok, and able to get DirTv from many sites.

Redstone There is 3 loops to this campground 2 loops have power and water, we stayed on both sides, both are GREAT! Site are spaced nicely, however some are laid out oddly they have what they call "shared site", that's what we got both time. We did not have reservation and that's all that was left middle of the week in July. You still have your space, but closer than other sites, we got lucky both time and had nice site mates. Very clean bathrooms and some had a free shower, nice table and fire rings, some have bear lockers. 1 mile to Redstone, short drive to Marble or Carbondale and other tourist thing in area. Easy walk to Crystal River. There is no ATT cell in area but able to get DirTV from many sites. Don't forget to use you golden age pass if you have one. This is true camping, amazing views from every site and chance to see all kinds of wild life. I would stay here again for sure if in the area.

Out Law Trails Let me start off by saying I did not stay here, but I wanted to let people know what to expect should they choose to head to Out Law Trails "campground" You will find a large gravel parking lot, with rows and rows of power pole what they call campsites. There are no trees so it's going to be hot and dry. Also people living there in anything from RV to old mobile homes. It is the closest campground to Dinosaur National Park, but there are some other places to choose from you just have to drive little futher.

Elk Creek Where do I start...first let me say we did not stay here, after driving at least 7 miles off the highway to this hole in the wall campground I felt the need to let other people know not to waste their time. You take a drive throw an area with some nice homes, then you come to a very narrow road that is really not suited for large RV's. Then to a turn into the "campground" you have to go down a steep dirt driveway, we parked and walked around at about 12:30 on a Friday in July office closed and NO one came out to greet us, but I was not surprise because I called on the way and recording said office was only open till 10:00 a.m. what in July... After walking the campground we found it in very poor condition, power boxes broken and just hanging from many sights. This campground has not been taken care of in some time, sadly because it's in a very nice spot on the river. Their web site say's they have a Wheelers 5 star rating and Woodall's 4 star, clearly NO one has been to this campground in years to rate it. The pictures you see on their web site do NOT look one bit like I found this campground to be in Mid July 2015.

Where to start, let's go with the good, easy to find right off the highway, friendly check-in gal, close to gas, nice river for fishing, good dog walking area. The bad, the place is a parking nightmare, I've never seen anything like it, the roads and the concrete pads all have a curve to them. Sites are very close to each other, reach out and touch your neighbor close. There is a shower, BUT men's and women's and laundry room are all in one, no door to lock between the men's and women's. (There is a code lock on the door to get into the whole "shower house".) No way would I take a shower in there (lady) anyone could walk in, pretty scary. (Was clean.) This campground is behind gas station and motel and truck parking. Wi-Fi was not strong enough for everyone in the park. AT&T cell worked fine. Campground was pretty full of large rigs running AC. We blew breakers a few times. FYI if you can't drive your rig in tight places and park in tight space, drive down the road, this is no place for a new driver. Would I stay again, if I needed a place to spend the night and in that area, maybe.

This is ok place for the night, right off the road so easy in easy out, staff was friendly bathroom were clean and they supply a towel. Concrete pad to park on, but NO table, I might of given a better review had they had one. Sites are very close, grounds are well kept, nice dog walking area, horse shoes, swings. WFI work well, and ATT cell worked. I would stay here again if I just needed a place for the night.

Never again! This could be such a nice RV/campground but it's not! Right on river but so overgrown you can't get to it. Bathroom is so dirty my husband would not even think about using them, and he's not very picky. Sites are on top of each other, there is no Wi-Fi , laundry, game room, etc...but yet they charge $34.00 a night. The only thing this park has going for it is location it's about 35 mins from downtown Seattle. But about 15 miles away in Carnation WA, there is a better place. Also lots of live in people with junk every where that ruins a park for me. FYI; there is no sign saying turn here for this RV park and our GPS did not have the turn right, when I told the lady at check-in about this she say's "happens ALL the time!" Not sure if it happens all the time why you would not change it, but... So if you miss the turn you end up in a roundly round or small downtown area. Turn right before the bridge.

Campground and Host remembered us from last year, does not get more welcoming than that, campground is very clean and well taken care of, always a good stay. With in walking distance of town, so you can stroll the nice town of Winthrop WA as often as you want without ever getting back in your car. Very clean showers and laundry room, ATT cell works well, free WFI works good. They are building some nice little cabin, so you don't have to have RV to stay here. Won't stay any place else in this area, had been on the road a month and in and out of well lets just say not so nice campground, was nice to know our last stay of this trip we would be pulling into a great campground.

This is a nice "resort". Has what looked like to be nice clean rustic rooms. We stayed in the campground in a 32' RV. Sites are large enough but close to each other. There is nice gift shop and café, had hamburgers one night and they were very good. We did stop one morning for breakfast, but after looking around and saying is any one here a few times over the loud music playing in the kitchen we left. Also has a very nice pool, and small play ground. Bathrooms could use a lot of work, but useable...on site laundry, but can only be used after they are done later in the day, I did not go in. Free WFI that worked ok, No ATT cell. If your going to this area in the peak season I would call ahead, there are not many places to choose from in the area and the middle of the week in June was pretty busy. Make sure you take in the Ape Cave and other sights in area. I would stay here again.

Stayed for a few days in the area. We checked out most of the RV parks in the Tillamook area and found this to be the better of the parks. It has very clean bathrooms and laundry room with good prices to wash and dry. This park could be amazing with just a little work on the owner's part, there is a nice river that runs through the back so make sure and take a walk. There are lots of bunnies that run around the park we did not mind them but my dog on the other had...Few things that I found on the down side, lots of live in, that just takes away so much from what could be a very nice RV park, they kind of kept them in their area, but...also the owner and permanent residents let their dogs run the park, but yet the rules say dogs must be leash, so their dogs were coming into our sight barking at our leashed dog. Sites are close to each other but the park was not full so worked out OK. Park could handle any size RV, there is NO AT&T cell in the park, they do have WiFi and it work well.

This a VERY large campground and sights are kind of close to each other, but still nice. Great sights to see in area either by foot or car, so make sure and plan some time to enjoy all the area has to offer. Very clean bathrooms and free showers. I found it very odd that for large campground there is NO trash cans around the park, but yet, dog poop bags, so if you pick it up you have to carry long way to throw away...(I did). FYI the maps we were given of the park and area did not seem to be correct on mileage or paths. I would for sure stay here again. No ATT cell at campground but pick up in other spots in park. $30.00 a night is WAY less than the KOA right before the park, so please don't give KOA your money unless you want all the bells and whistles of a KOA. I would of given this a 10 but sights are close and the no trash can thing...
