We stayed in the west recreation area, RV site #10. Road into the RV loop and the pad is gravel. The RV sites were not very well maintained, lots of tall grass/weeds. A couple of dead trees were right over the end of our pad so we stayed out from under those. The electric pedestal is about 1/2 way back on the pad, the water connection shared with site #9 and it took a 50' hose to get to it. Power was good, water pressure was good, Wi-Fi worked well for my droid phone. The park is heavily wooded, lots of shade around the pad. Picnic table was far away and not in good shape. Generally the park was very quiet, it is away from any highway noise. But, beware that there is a concert venue about 4 miles away and they were having a concert the weekend we were in the park. The bass & drum beat was unbelievably loud from 8pm to 1am for 2 days of our stay. Our party complained to the park staff about the noise but they said they could not do anything about it. If this type of noise is bothersome to you, please check out the concert schedule before going at www.tumbleweedok.com. The park website claims there is regular patrol of the park which we took to be a ranger type person - we never saw anyone in the 72 hours we were there. We will camp again there in the future, had a great time with other family camping at 2 adjacent sites. The park had a lot of hiking trails and paved roads to walk on and nice views of the lake. Our RV site had a small view of the lake but most of the RV sites in this loop had no lake views. Come into this area from Hwy 51 if you want all paved roads. Coming in from the west and northeast will take you on some dirt roads.

Most of the park has only electric and water hookups but we stayed in a small area with full hookups. The full hookup area roads and sites were paved. The park is around a small lake and away from noise! The night was very quiet. We wished we could have stayed for several days. Would definitely stay there again. There was no free wifi and no TV cable but all other utilities worked fine. We could only get 1 OTA TV station, Verizon cell phone worked fine.

Roads and sites are all gravel. Sites are nicely spaced. Our site utilities all worked well, wifi was good. Park is noisy as it sits right along the interstate. LOTS of wind the night we stayed there, thought we were going to flip over. Staff was friendly, attendant took us to our site. We would stay there again if that was our only choice for one night.

A pricey park to stay in but it is nice. All roads and sites are paved, sites are nicely spaced, several trees scattered around. The place was quiet at night. They didn't have cable TV and we didn't use their wifi. We would stay there again. Staff was friendly.

Lots of train and interstate noise through the night. Our site was a pull through. This is just a large gravel parking lot, no trees, lots of wind. Staff was very friendly, wifi and TV cable was good. Spaces are not super tight. Four out of the six clothes dryers were out of order so we had to wait on other people to get finished before we could use the laundry. Was able to do online reservations. We wouldn't stay there again unless that was our only choice for the area because of the noise at night.

Nice little park on the west side of town. It is about 2 miles to the west Yellowstone National Park gate. Sites are shaded, nestled in among pine trees. Sites are a little tight for units with slideouts, but they will fit. Sites are pretty close together. Each site had a patio and picnic table. Our pull through site wasn't long enough for our 37' trailer and truck, but you can park you pickup behind your rig. Wifi, cable tv, and all other utilities worked great. Park roads and sites are all graveled. The laundry facilities were great. We stayed 2 nights and all was quiet. They only take cash or checks. Management was friendly and very helpful. We would stay there again.

The park is graveled but the site we stayed in was level and had a little shade. Wifi was charged for so we did not use. VZ cell service worked great. No cable TV, but all other utilities worked fine. It was quiet at night although trains run along the west side of town about every 20 minutes. They never blow their horns so it didn't bother us. They don't take reservations, you pick your spot and use the envelope system at the office to pay. We stayed in a pull through site and stayed hooked up to a 37' travel trailer. They have both 30 & 50 amp power. We stayed one night and would stay there again.

A nice paved park. Our pull thru site was fairly unlevel lengthwise but was perfectly level side to side. Our site was very close to our neighbors. All utilites worked fine. We didn't use their cable TV and their wifi was about the speed of dialup. Our Verizon phone signal was strong. The section of park that we stayed in was down a fairly steep hill and it takes a lot of power to pull your rig out of there. The management was very friendly and helpful. The park is well kept and clean. Nights were quiet, no traffic or train noise. We stayed for 2 nights in a 37' travel trailer. We would definitely stay there again.

This is not a park for those who like paved roads and nice level paved sites. Our site was in what they call the meadow area on the outer loop. It was mostly grass and dirt, with a little gravel and it was very unlevel. It would be nice if they would do some pad maintenance. The wifi didn't work for us, we did have weak Verizon phone service, no tv service, but the other utilities worked fine. We stayed there 2 nights and enjoyed seeing Elk in the park. We stayed there in a 37' travel trailer, our site was an easy back in site and the site spacings were spacious. It was quiet at night, but there is a lot of highway noise all other times. It is less than a mile from a beautiful Pacific Ocean beach park. Management was very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

A nice place to stay but ask for the upper back lot to get as far away from the interstate noise as possible. The interstate is very close. Sites are paved and ours was perfectly level, our utilities all worked well, had great wifi service. Our only complaint was how close the sites were together, they were not spacious, but they did allow everthing to spread out. Management was very friendly and helpful. The park was very clean and nicely landscaped. We were only travelling through so we only stayed 2 nights, but we would stay there again. We stayed in a pull thru site in a 37' travel trailer and we could leave our pickup hooked on.

We stayed for 3 nights. Seemed to be a little pricey for what you get, but then you are in a popular tourist area. Tight spots to get backed into with a 34' trailer, better be a good backer. Driveways are gravel, site pads are mostly dirt, but level. Each power pedestal serves both a right side/left side connection, not sure our unit slides/awning would have even had enough room had there been a unit in the adjacent site. We had power issues, receptacles got hot and breakers tripped when our load exceeded 20 amps on a 30 amp service, they need to do some maintenance on their power pedestals. Water, sewer, cable tv, and wifi all worked fine. Picnic tables and a fire ring/grill is at most sites. Friendly staff, good adequate laundry facilities. The short term rv sites are located along a river, although there was no water running during our visit. Other long term rv sites and mobile homes are on a hill above this park, but we had no issues with them. Great location for access into Yosemite National Park. Evenings and nights were quiet during our stay, however just across the river is a public skate park and an industrial equipment yard. The equipment started up every morning we were there and made noise from 5:45am to 6:30am. One morning during our stay the trash truck ran around 4:30am and I think the driver was mad that he was the only one working during that time as he made sure the entire neighborhood was woke up. We would stay here again as long as it was during their off season like this trip was.

We pulled into the center section of the park which is just a huge bare gravel lot, but the spacing was nice. Stayed for 1 night. Power, sewer, water utilities worked fine. If they had wifi & cable we didn't use it. Our internet hotspot worked fine. It is close to an airplane facility, but we never heard any air traffic during the night. It was quiet at night until about 5:30am when there began to be a lot of traffic noise along the west side of the park. Park is in a rural area and fenced in except for the entrance. We would stay there again if we ever were in the area again. The staff was pleasant to deal with.

Best park we've stayed in, very clean, & quiet except for occasional aircraft noise early in the morning. No children under 18 here, extra charge of $5 per person over 2 people. All gravel drives but well maintained. Sites are fairly level with red lava rock and concrete patio. No issues with any utilities, we couldn't use the cable because the connection point wasn't with the other utilities and our cord wasn't long enough, the wifi worked well. Pull thru sites for overnighters are a little tight but you can fully spread out your slideouts & awning. Sites were long enough for us to keep our pickup connected to the trailer and an extra small SUV parked. Our site was in the full sun, but was pleasant in the evening at Flagstaff altitude. Will definitely stay there again if we are in the area. Very friendly & helpful staff. Well done J & H owners! Thanks for a great stay!

This review is on camping area E and is one of our favorite camping areas. We've been to this park multiple times, in the winter & early spring months. Sites are easy to back into. Only take a trailer longer than 25' into the park on hwy 170. This park is at the bottom of a steep ravine so there is no cell service and very limited over the air TV signal in the campground area. You can walk to the hwy 220/170 junction and get Verizon service. All sites in campground E have 30 or 50 amp service, water, sewer, fairly level paved parking, tent pad, picnic table, grill, & fire pit. Very little exterior lighting, so take a flashlight to get around at night. This area has a beautiful flowing stream along the south side. Has always been nice and quiet at night. Sites 87 thru 94 are close to the campground sewage treatment so there is some off and on motor noise that you will hear from those sites, but no smell. The park has beautiful scenery and a lot of great hiking trails. We have always used the online reservation system and you can request a specific site, but call before you get there to make sure the site is available because they do not let you know ahead of time. If you have made an online reservation, you can go ahead and park your rig and then walk or drive to the office for check in.

This was our first trip to this park and we had a very enjoyable experience. We will return. Our site was not level, but pulling up on blocks took care of that. Even though the park was full, everyone was on good behavior and it was very quiet at night. The sites are well spaced and you're not crammed in on top of each other. Almost all of the sites are shaded and a few in the north section of the park have a slight view of the lake through the trees. I would recommend to stay away from sites 85 thru 89 as they were close to a sewer lift station and the smell was terrible in that area. Besides the nightly rate, you do get charged a daily per person admission fee of $5 each. If you have more than 2 vehicle units (our truck and trailer counted for 2 units) on the site, they also charge you an additional $4 per night for an excess vehicle fee. If your site hasn't been used for a while, the water will have a real bad sulfur smell for a few minutes, but that will clear up after a few gallons of water are run out. The area is hilly with a lot of trees and the hiking trails were great. The park rangers were friendly and they drove through the camping area several times each day. We did see several deer during our stay. Dogs are abundant, but they must be on a leash.
