The road to this park (off Highway 16) still has not improved any, very slow and rough. We've been to this park several times and always enjoyed our stay. Decent back-in campsites, most with power and well treed. Water is available throughout the campground. It is evident this area has suffered heavy rains and flooding conditions the last few years, resulting in trees dying off in some areas. Campground has a great beach and a nice walk to the sand dunes is a must. This is a provincial park so a park pass is an additional fee. Couldn't see how this park justified the $5/night raise in camp fee. All SK Provincial parks now have an online reservation system which works well, however a person has to be very strategic trying to get a power site for more than a couple days during July and Aug. You might get lucky but best to plan ahead.

A basic campground along I-90 and you will know you're right beside the Interstate the entire time you're in camp - very noisy! Gravel roadways and level sites with some grass between sites. The bathrooms and shower house appear to be a new building and it is awesome and roomy enough to respect each others space, it is kept clean with plenty of hot water. Didn't check out the laundry facility but it's also part of the new building so I'm sure its good. Wi-Fi was a little slow at times, but adequate. Cable TV is an extra charge which is alright with me as I don't mind paying for only the services I'm using.

This is one of our favourite places to camp. Don't be fooled by its southern Saskatchewan location, it is still within the Boreal Forest and offers everything the Northern Saskatchewan forest has. We have (to date) camped in 215 different campgrounds throughout Canada and the U.S. and have never seen so many spacious and private campsites in one campground, and many are pull-throughs. In 2014 there were many noticeable improvements with a lot more electrical sites and a new shower house. A new sewer dump and parking area is also in progress. There are only about 15 or so full hookup sites and the rest are 15/30 amp power with water available throughout the park. Wonderful hiking/biking trails. High waters has overcome the beach area at the campground but the main beach a short drive away is very spacious and beautiful with lots of sand, grass, and trees. Throughout July and August the park offers many different ways to participate and enjoy the park. We enjoyed "Saskatchewan Express" performance on stage at the main beach, showcasing excellent local talent. Keep in mind this is a Saskatchewan Provincial Park with an online reservation system so it could be difficult getting a site on short notice (during high season) for more than a day or so. Best to plan ahead and reserve early.

Host was friendly and accommodating, escorting each guest to their site. Well kept campground with many well cared for flower pots and arrangements. This is an overall nice campground with level sites with grass. Unfortunately it's quite noisy with a nearby train tracks and Interstate traffic. Wi-Fi was a little slow at times but manageable. Was a nice stay.

Super friendly people on check in and very helpful with the "what to do's" in the area. The location was convenient only two blocks to the Bill Cody museum and walkable to the main street tourist shops. The only reason a higher rating was not given was due to the very close camp sites and the neighbours sewer drain in your tiny space. Big rigs were accommodated better with sidewalks and some with concrete pads. Truck campers and small units always get the crappy site. Next time maybe we'll bring our 5th wheel.

The first thing that comes to mind is the bathroom and shower house was worth the high price of admission - they were excellent. The sites are very tight together which reflected the rating given. Otherwise the location to Yellowstone Park and the town of Gardiner was convenient. Wifi and utilities worked fine.

Typical National Park camping so we know what to expect and there were no disappointments. It appears pretty rough terrain for tents with no designated tent pads. So for anyone tenting, depending on your site, it could be a pretty bumpy and unlevel sleep. This is one of the few reservable campgrounds in the park so it's easily overlooked for tenters.

A great place for a short stay. Easy access on and off Interstate, not far from the busy highway yet the campground was reasonably quiet. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating and proud of their campground. Great private bathrooms and showers which were clean. Didn't use the pool, not sure if it's heated, also a small playground with slide etc. for kids Only about 3 miles drive east of Miles City. The campground did fill up so would recommend reservations during the busy season. Would certainly stay again.

This is another nice provincial campground in Northern Saskatchewan. Campsites are all decent back-in sites, well treed and many with 15/30 amp power. Water is available throughout the campground. There are four private unisex bathroom/showers, which is nice. Park is kept clean. The beach is a bit of a walk (near the boat launch). This place is mainly all about the fishing, nothing extra but still a very good northern forest experience. Very hard to get an electrical campsite in prime times. This is not a large campground and many sites are seasonal. Best plan ahead if you want to stay in this park.

Basic check in took longer than it should have, pretty slow that day. Well treed campground with paved roadways and sites. Sites are decently spaced. Bathrooms/showers were adequate. Wifi only available in common area. Rental cabana area eliminated what would have been a wonderful river view. Nice beach area along the river but don't expect a sand beach. Enjoyed the hiking trails from the park trail head. Enjoyed our stay and overall a good park.

Date of Stay:

Entire campground is gravel with just a few trees here and there. Sites are pretty close, side by side in rows. Lady was very pleasant at check in. There is a pool but didn't use it, laundry looked okay and bathroom/showers were good. Really can't see this place as a destination, we were here for an overnight stop when traveling thru.

We arrived just prior to campground closing season mid November and grateful this place was available for late season travelers. Due to cold temps; water was not available at the site, but we could still fill our water tank prior to parking. Easy on and off Interstate and far enough away not to hear any traffic noise. Probably a very nice place during the prime season. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Sites are level gravel with an easy pull thru. Bathrooms and showers were very good. Will definitely keep this place in mind for future travels.

This is a great park to experience the natural desert and enjoy a beautiful sunset. The gravel sites are nicely spaced with a few trees and paved roadways. There are some good hiking trails in the area and close to the Desert Museum. The only reason this was not rated higher is because the bathrooms could use some sprucing up and there are no showers!! You can only stay for a maximum of one week and be absent for two weeks before returning. We enjoyed our time at this campground.

This is a 55+ campground but more accurately is really 70 to 99 age group and yes, there is a 99 year old resident! Very well organized with plenty of activities for the long term resident. Everything is kept immaculately clean and staff is all very helpful and pleasant. There are more park models than RV spaces so be sure to call ahead during the busy season. We stayed in a patio site which was nice compared to the basic site with no table. When the park is full expect to be in very close contact with your camp neighbours, the good side to that is everyone we met was very friendly. The heated pool was the warmest we've ever experienced. The location is close to shopping but expect traffic noise, especially sirens every day and throughout the night. The campground is gated overnight and we felt safe at all times. The rate was pretty steep for a short stay even after the Good Sam discount but it covered a lot of activities we didn't take advantage of.

A good location brought us here, outside Rockport yet centrally located to Port Aransas and Corpus Christi. Great shade and wind shelter under live oak trees. Much caution is needed for anyone with big rigs because of many tight turns and low hanging limbs, But usually can be navigated. Awesome concrete pads, good utilities, and Wi-Fi. The staff and other guests were all very friendly and a pleasure to visit with. However, we do have to state the bath house was inadequate with only one unisex bathroom with shower in a cabin. Although this one bathroom was given a quick surface clean, much was missed. The laundry facility was okay but the rec room was messy and cluttered. Apparently, upgrades and expansion is planned but nothing happening anytime soon that we could see. It was the pleasant people and location that made this an enjoyable stay.
