Date of Stay:

One of our favorite spring-fall Colorado State Park campgrounds. Very shady, level sites backing up to small Lake Hasty (not huge John Martin Reservoir). Up to 50 amp electric; lots of water hydrants scattered throughout campground; clean, heated restrooms (with 4 pay shower stalls in men's and 4 in women's); and a long, wide, 4-lane dump. Stayed here on way to and from short TX-OK- KS trip and shared the 109 sites with 4 other campers each night. Nightly rate based on weekday stay with senior Aspen Leaf Pass. We will be back!

Date of Stay:

This campground exceeded our expectations for both camping and wildlife and all for $10 with our Senior Pass! Sites were long enough and straight enough to back into without unhooking our trailer. Filled our fresh water tank from one of many threaded faucets scattered around campground and had a choice of 20, 30, or 50 amp power. Great shade from the many oak trees around our site, a lake within walking distance where we spotted geese, ducks, and herons, an entire herd of white-tail deer right in the middle of the loop, and a flock of 11 wild turkeys walking down the road. Fortunately, none of the resident refuge bison, elk, or longhorn cattle appeared in the campground. We will definitely be back in the spring when the bison calves are born.

Date of Stay:

We stayed in small, hilltop Cheyenne campground site 3E. Lake-view, not lakeside, sites. Lots of grass and small trees between very long (50-75') sites, so good privacy and shaded in late afternoon. New, nice, and very clean restrooms with free showers were just across the driveway. Water and a dump station available just across the main road. We were very glad we stayed here to visit Wind Cave NP instead dry camping at Wind Cave's short, cramped, no-hookup, no-shade RV sites. It was also much more modern and less cramped than Custer SP's Sylvan Lake Campground. We would definitely stay here again if visiting the Black Hills.

Date of Stay:

Poorly maintained, overpriced RV park occupying the front yards of 3 houses. Good afternoon shade is about the only redeeming feature. The train noise from coal and oil unit trains on the immediately adjacent BN-SF mainline is nearly unbearable. Fortunately, the frequent and LOOOOOONG locomotive horns sounding at the grade crossing seemed to end at 11:00 PM and not restart until 6:00 AM. But during the night trains still came by that shook the trailer.

Date of Stay:

We were in site #31E with nice shade, but no privacy and very close to adjacent sites. Good electricity, several water hydrants scattered around campground, but no Custer SP RV dump for 20 miles (at Game Lodge CG). We dumped at Fort WeLikIt RV Resort on Hwy 87 near Custer for $5.20. So, adding that to the CG fee makes it $22.30 for the 4 nights we were there. Then there is the $15 park entrance fee good for 1-7 days. That makes our nightly rate right at $26/night. The men's restroom has one toilet stall and two showers (free), so count on waits if using either. And the campground is about 1/2 mile from Sylvan Lake via a poorly maintained trail through the woods. My overall opinion is that too many sites have been crammed into an old campground to maximize income and the CG infrastructure (restrooms, showers, dumps, path to lake and general store, etc.) has not kept up.

Date of Stay:

Junction 37 badly needs maintenance and has spotty management due to absentee (Whitehorse-based) ownership. But it had long, shaded, full-hookup, pull-thrus for the best price in town. We stayed here twice, going to and coming from Alaska.

Date of Stay:

Right off highway to Dawson Creek with interesting restrooms and showers built into old railroad cabooses. Recently-mowed, gravel and grass back-in sites. Partial hook-ups (no sewer), but has a free sanidump for campground guests. No on-site manager, so one back corner site was occupied by a full-time resident. Five-minute walk to only grocery store. We would stay here again and would recommend to others.

Date of Stay:

City-owned campground with shaded, full and partial-hookup, back-in and pull-thru sites. New, very clean restrooms, good WiFi, but poor cable TV. Very friendly manager, but does not live on-site so frequently out of the office. Heavily used and some long-term RVers. Adjacent to river and golf course. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend as an overnight stop after crossing the border from Montana.

Date of Stay:

Our pull-thru site was shaded and fairly private, but not particularly level and was muddy in spots. Park is too far to walk to stores or cafes in town, so must unhook trailer to go anywhere else. And, we had very noisy neighbors till late at night and again the next morning. We would only stay again because it is the only campground with hookups between Grand Prairie and Hinton.

Date of Stay:

$30 for a poorly maintained, very muddy, 20A electric and water only pull-thru. Office, fence, grass, and playground look great from the road, but looks are about it. Best sites filled with long-term RVs and there is constant truck noise all night because the entire region is in the midst of a shale-gas drilling boom. Stayed here the night after being here in another nice CG and the contrast couldn't have been greater. Would not stay here again or recommend.

Date of Stay:

One of the nicest RV parks we stayed in anywhere in Canada or Alaska. Friendly efficient management, well-maintained, clean restrooms, shaded back-in sites on lake, gorgeous lake views, abundant wildlife and waterfowl, good but not inexpensive café, expensive fuel (but cheaper than outrageous Muncho Lake prices). We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to others.

Date of Stay:

New, local ownership, so things were still in flux during our stay. Only back-in sites have park-generated, 30A electric. Water and dump are across park from electric sites. Pull-thrus are in trees between back-ins and dump, but have no electricity. We stayed here twice, going to and coming from Valdez. Our first two-day stay was for our one-day van tour to Kennicott, with the van picking us up at the RV park. Would stay here again as was a good value for a remote Alaska RV park.

Date of Stay:

Narrow, poorly maintained, straight-in (no angle), gravel sites. Too many long-term and privately owned spaces, so short-timers pay more to make up the difference. Very far from town, any services, and highway, so only noise is from noisy neighboring sites. But had shade, full-hookups, laundry, and (poor) WiFi. Although middle-of-the-road for Alaska, we wouldn't stay here again due to high price.
