Good cable tv, good water pressure, decent wi-fi, pull thru was about 65' long. Fenced, off-leash dog run was good sized. Could use a bench or picnic table so owners can sit while dogs play. Close to I-90, but still quiet. Narrow road to get to the park from main road, but it is a short drive on that narrow road. Gas and grocery are close. Friendly staff. No campfires or charcoal, but gas grills are allowed. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Nightly rate was averaged for 6 nights. Passport America was good for 4 of those nights. Very quiet park out in the boonies. NOT big rig friendly. Tree branches and narrow entry road are not good for Class A or fifth wheels. There are a few sites at the front of the camp ground that could fit a big rig, but once you get into the trees, good luck. You'll probably get new scratches on the roof and top sides of your coach. I think they should cut down a few of the trees in the camp area. Would make it easier to get rigs in and out plus add openness to the sites. There would still be plenty of aspens left. Water pressure was a meager 22 psi. Don't know if that is because they water the golf course all day or not. Park's wifi connectivity is a complete joke. One hot spot and very slow connection. Would be better to not have it instead of disappointing the customers with slow speeds and frequent drops. No off leash dog run. There is ample room to put one if they ever decide to. If you like to golf, you might enjoy this place with it's 18 hole executive golf course. No cable and no over the air tv. Satellite might be a problem if you have a well treed site.This park is about an hour from West Yellowstone and about 2 hrs from the south entrance to the Grand Tetons. You can see the Tetons in the distance from the park. I stayed here for the PA rate. Probably should have bit the bullet and paid more to stay at a park closer to Yellowstone. At least some of the money I saved staying here was eaten up in fuel costs driving to/from the parks.

Overnighted here. Place filled up late in the afternoon. As more people arrived, the Wi-Fi got worse and worse, even though I was close to the repeater. Water pressure was about 40 PSI. Pull-through site was just long enough to park my long bed truck in line with my coach. Yes, there is a little highway noise, but it is not bad. At check-in, we got discount tickets for fuel at the adjacent truck stop and meals at the restaurant. Diesel was cheaper in town so I bought there. This is a basic RV park that serves a purpose as a place to park and take a rest after a day on the road.

Weak, but adequate, water pressure. Hookups were a little funky. 50 Amp was on a telephone pole at the front of site 8. I ended up using my 50A extension. Sewer hookup was well within the site width, so I had to put my coach pretty far to the right, making the site narrower than it really was. They have small boulders marking the site openings. Site was very deep, so I could put my truck directly in line with my coach and still be off the loop road. That was nice. No cable, but able to get a good number of channels via the antenna. Wifi didn't work at the site, but is available at the lobby. Was quiet even though the highway is close by. Big open field behind the sites for the dogs to run, but please keep a bag with you and pick up after your pets along with making sure your pets are under voice control if off leash. Miniature golf on site. Restaurants a few miles down the road. Front desk and maintenance employees were very helpful and courteous. If this was in a less touristy area, it would be overpriced. But, since it is Glacier, you have to pay.

Not big rig friendly at all. You might get into the park, but good luck getting into a site. If you have a RV wheel over 35', you would be better off looking elsewhere. Sites are Tight and Close. Lots of permanent residents who tend to forget the rules. One exit road is tighter and with more curves than the other. If someone has a vehicle partially in the road, you will have problems. Despite being in town and on a busy road, it is relatively quiet. Good water pressure and cable TV. Manager is nice, but the place needs a reality check when it comes to accommodating long coaches. Way too many trees too close to site entry and exit as well as turns in the road to get out of the park. Way overpriced for what you get and what they give.

Nightly rate reflects weekly discount, $150 for a week. Basic, no frills, park. Quiet place. No loose dogs running around during my stay. Mgr was friendly enough. He prefers you just drop your money in the box at the office and pick a site, but he picked up the phone each time (3) I called. RV park options are limited in this area. Pull thru site was long enough for my 41' coach and longbed dually to fit. Good water pressure. No cable and zero antenna tv stations. Pretty good wi-fi for streaming. Laundry is $1.50 wash and $1.50 dry. No fenced-in dog area. Lots of permanent residents, but not a lot of traffic coming and going in the park, which is a good thing. I wouldn't put in in my schedule to stay here again, but if I was in the area and needed a place to stay, this would be o.k.

Park has good water pressure. That is the only positive I have to say. This place is FAR from a resort. Made reservations for a 50 amp FHU site that would fit my 41'. Spent the first 20 minutes at the park being told they didn't have anymore 50 Amp sites. Then it turns out they did have 3, but none were long/wide enough for my coach. Since I was within the cancellation period, I could take the leftovers or lose ALL ($120) of my reservation. So, I took a 30 Amp FHU site that was wide enough, but 10 feet of my coach and my entire truck stuck out into the parking lot. The vast majority of sites are very close. So close you can't extend the awning all the way. The park has 3 tiers. Each is really a gravel parking lot. Don't let the nice pics on the web page fool you. This place is old, cramped, and in need of maintenance. The door to my site's electric pedestal came off in my hands and tables need paint. A number of power poles are bent back from coaches hitting them. 1 lane crossing to/from the lower tiers. The gate shack is Right off Rt 101. If you're coming from the north, pull off on the shoulder and hope no one hits you. If you're coming from the south, hope there is room to pull into the parking lot and room to turn around. The guy at the gate shack was rather inept. The manager complained about "corporate" taking reservations but not passing the info to the park. The park does not reserve sites, just services. That is why there was not a 50 Amp site large enough for my rig. They were taken by smaller rigs that could have fit on a smaller site. But, it is first come, first dibs. You might be able to get WiFi at your site. If not, go to one of the club houses. They will not accept deliveries for RVers. I really don't understand why this place is packed. I won't be back or recommend this place.

Date of Stay:

Stayed 3 nights at Passport America rate and 1 night at full rate. Sites are not big rig friendly (too short for tow vehicle), but big rigs can get in and out easily. Boat rental prices were very good. Quiet park, but not what I'd call a "resort". Lots of permanent residents and plenty of older RVs. Some preventive maintenance is needed on the pedestals. Folks were friendly. No fenced dog run. Would repeat if in the area.

Date of Stay:

If you have a fifthwheel in the 38' + range and a longbed pickup, you might have some problems maneuvering in this park. Way too many trees in the RV area. Narrow loop road with many rough spots from tree roots. Decent water pressure. Lost power one day for a short time. Dog park is adjacent in a separate park. Easier to just walk the dog on a leash. No wifi at $30 a night??? What?? For such basic amenities, it is overpriced, IMO.

Date of Stay:

Passport America rate. 2 minor negatives; only 5 OTA tv stations and no fenced dog run. VERY quiet park, friendly hosts, and level sites. Easy in and easy out from sites and from park. Gravel road from the highway was in very good condition. No dust from the park's gravel loop road. Decent spacing between sites and partial shade at almost every site. Walking trail loop is about 3 miles total into the woods and back. On-site free fishing and there are several lakes within an hr drive. On-site laundry is $1.75 to wash and a quarter per 10 min dry. Town of Lakeview is 10 miles and has everything you need; hardware store, grocery store, many restaurants, 2 gas stations (only one has diesel), etc. Local tourist office has loads of info on area and Oregon. ATV store in town can order motorcycle parts; 2 days or more to get parts in depending on what warehouse they're in. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here 2 nights using Passport America. PA is good for back-in sites only. Decent spacing between sites. Good water pressure and lots of cable channels. Had Wi-Fi problems the first few hours we were here. Don't know if it was the weather or what. Wi-Fi was fine the second day. Dog run is gravel as are the sites. Inner roads are paved. Wingers restaurant on site is good. There is a casino in the same building. Camp store is rather sparsely stocked, but at least town is close.

You get what you pay for. The low rate got me here. If you're lucky enough to get one of the 14 spaces at the top of the hill, you'll have plenty of room. If you're unlucky and get one of the spaces on the up slope in the lower area of the park, hopefully you're rig isn't too long or wide. The sites are TIGHT and on the short side. Neighbor's water hookup was right at the base of my entry stairs. We were so close to the neighbors, we could hear their propane heater kick on and run. Could also hear sounds from inside their trailer. Couldn't hear what was said, but heard the sounds. Speaking of sounds, you will get road noise. Wifi was o.k., water pressure was adequate. Antenna pick up a good number of tv stations. Lady who works at the office is a bit gruff. She will NOT sign for a package if it requires a signature. She said she "can't be responsible". Really? Can't put it behind the front counter? There is no US Mail delivery to the park. You have to use General Delivery and pick it up in town. No problem, but it would be nice if they mentioned that little fact on the park's web page. Horse paddocks are overgrown with weeds. I guess they don't get used much. Overall, it is the cheapest game in town, but I wouldn't stay here again.

Very friendly ladies at the office when I checked in. Only real negative I have is the slow Wi-Fi speed, but they are supposed to be upgrading to fiber optic so speeds should increase once that is done. Site was long enough for my 40' 5er and long bed truck to fit. That is not always the case in Moab campgrounds. Site spacing is good. Again, this isn't always the case in Moab. I had site 70. A tree was too close to extend the awning. Other sites have trees at different spots so they won't interfere with awnings. Good water pressure. Being away from the highway is nice and offers a quiet stay. No fenced dog run, but it is a big enough place to walk around for 10 min or so. Also the arena property is right next door and you can walk your dog there for more exercise if needed. Please remember to take your "pickup" bags. Was here in June so Passport America discount was used. Even with the extra cost to run a/c, it is still a much better deal than other Moab parks. I would stay here again.

Very friendly owners and very friendly workampers. Older RVers stay here. Only kids I saw were the owner's and friends of the owners. That was great. Some sites back up to one of 2 ponds. Pull thrus are long, but a little funky. They have power on one side and water/sewer on the other. Cable did not work well for me, but I don't know if it was my coach or the park. Wi-fi was fine for email, but no streaming tv shows. Cell reception is spotty in this valley. The Dolores River runs right past the place and along with the 2 ponds offers shore fishing opportunities. Ponds are catch and release only, no license required. River is catch and keep, but you need a license. Even though the park is right on CO Rt 145, I wasn't bothered by traffic noise. Lots of things to do in this area. Stayed here a week and enjoyed it. I would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Ultra friendly hosts. Good wifi. Was able to stream shows without too much lag. Very few RVers so that might have something to do with the good wifi speeds. Good water pressure. Back in sites are about 45' long and wide enough to park my truck next to my coach. Park is right on Rt 149, but the road didn't have much use during our stay so it was pretty quiet. No fenced dog run, but there is a quiet neighborhood across the tracks to walk dogs on a leash. Remember your plastic bags, please. Zero over the air tv. The beautiful mountains must block the tv signals. All the RV parks in South Fork look pretty much the same (gravel lots). Considering this is the only park in South Fork that has no Passport America restrictions, I would stay here if staying in South Fork again.
