The park is great. Loved the people and the trout pond. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
We stayed for a month at $350. The woman at the hotel desk (same management) wanted to charge us a higher rate but she checked with someone (not sure it was the manager) who said if that was what we were quoted then that is what we should be charged. The manager is a ghost. Poor maintenance in the park is true as previously noted. We were told that we could have mail delivered at the Park but learned that the manager never checks his PO box at the post office. Even the post office was aware of this. We used general delivery instead which worked perfectly. We endured a water outage of several hours and had to get the Park's router reset in order to use their internet service. We chose the location because of its proximity to Rexburg for shopping and other conveniences (about 30 miles) and to Yellowstone (55 miles). There is a very nice small grocery and several restaurants in Ashton. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
POSITIVES: Convenient to highway; had all necessities (cable TV, 50 amp, good water pressure, WiFi) and fairly level. NEGATIVES: WEED CITY. The first day we were here, I spent picking the weeds out of our site's gravel, just so it looked better. Although we were in a motorhome, we chose a back-in spot in the very back of the park for more privacy and a little bit of grass for the dog. If possible, pick the back-in spot at the very rear, far left side. Best spot in the park. Mostly gravel park and this town is dead. There is very, very, very, did I mention VERY little to do in this town. We also thought we were closer to the Tetons and Yellowstone and found the dirt road the prior comment told about. We decided to try that road cause it looked like a shortcut, but 5 miles up it, we ran across a guy who said a grizzly bear had just been in the road. We turned around and went the long way home. This park would be fine for overnight only. Do Not Stay Here as a halfway point to Yellowstone and Tetons. You will regret it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First the positives about the park. Most sites are fairly level. Now the negatives. On the phone I was quoted $199.00 for the week. At check-in the woman at the counter who claimed she was new and not sure of the weekly rate charged me $245.00. After checking my notes I contacted the manager who told me "no problem" and he would take care of the charge to my card. This didn't happen so a couple days later I asked him again. He said he would take care of it. It is now late in the following week. We left the area and it has not been done. Looks like I'm out the additional charges. After check-in, we were told to take a campground map and pick a spot. The whole campground had an unkempt appearance. A bleak weed lot would be accurate. One camper who spoke to me early on said "the mower near his site had been sitting for a week". The pull-throughs have the services on the left side but any of the back-ins have it on the right. The first site I checked out had a dead rat in it. We did have a choice of some pull-throughs so selected one, dropped the legs on the 5th wheel and started to hook up. The water valve was broken and shot water everywhere. Checked the next site and it also had a broken valve. Finally found a site with all services working and moved to that space. There's a sign at the front of the park "Trout Pond Coming Soon" but the pond is actually a rain water retention pond with weeds all around it. The manager is seldom at the park. He appeared for a short time in the mornings and appears to be generally uninterested in the park itself. He did answer my cell call on the rate problem. We picked this campground because on a map it seems central to both Yellowstone and the Tetons. I discovered there is a road that goes to the middle of the parks but it is a dirt road and I was told very slow driving. Being closer to the west entrance to Yellowstone would have been better. If you were stuck for a place to spend the night this park could work out but that's about it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was exactly as advertised. No surprises. Adjacent to motel. Office, pool etc., are located in the motel. Great restaurants in Ashton. About 50 miles from Yellowstone but we were delayed and lost our reservations in West Yellowstone. This was as close as we could get on very short notice. Clean and quiet. No WiFi at RV park but 3g worked well on my iPad and DW's Verizon AirCard worked well. Open sky for satellite. Great State Park nearby. Would stay again and see other sites. Took grandkids to Yellowstone Bear World, a private zoo/rescue park in Rexburg. Very nice. They fed baby bears and saw rare white elk (not albino). Bears, moose, elk etc., were roaming kind of free with a winding road to view them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy in easy out spacious pull throughs. Wi-Fi & cable works. Sites are level gravel pads with grass in between sites. Yellowstone and the Tetons are both about a one hour drive. We decided that we'd rather drive a bit farther and stay in a quiet serene park, rather than stay in the hectic parks in Yellowstone. Another bonus is there is a really nice golf course about 25 miles away in Rexburg. Groceries and other necessities are available in Ashton. No pool = minus 1, no showers minus 1/2, no activities minus 1/2, no paved sites minus 1 = a rating of 7. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small park about 7 or so miles outside of Ashton ID. The views driving in are beautiful. It is on a golf course, so if you're a golfer, this would be a great place. It's very quiet, peaceful, and woodsy. The sites are grass, but fairly level. All are back-in sites with plenty of room. The instructions were to go to the Wi-Fi hotspot which happened to be across the street from us, so we had good Wi-Fi at our site. Don't know how it would be otherwise unless you actually went to sit at the hotspot. We had good Verizon cell service, and we picked up satellite. The hosts were very friendly. This is a beautiful, relaxing place. If we hadn't had reservations elsewhere, we would've stayed more than one night. The rate is a Passport America rate ($16.00) plus $5.00 for the dog. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is approximately 12 miles outside of Ashton. There is a 18 hole golf course on the premises. There are a number of seasonal residents tucked in the back of the campground. Some of the sites are more leveled then others. The electrical box is on the correct side, but the water facets on some of the sites were shared and were on the wrong side. The electrical box had 20/30/50 amp service and the electrical voltage was good. The outside of the bathrooms did not look very appealing; however, they did remodel them on the inside. There was one bathroom and shower per gender and was very clean. I think there was only one set of bathrooms for the entire campground. Next to the bathroom was a gazebo with a Wi-Fi hotspot. We did not use it, but other people were. Verizon air card and phone worked well here. I would call ahead to make reservations. It was very quiet at night. The price reflects the Passport America rate. We would definitely come back again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The plus side of this park is that the setting is very quiet and surrounded by trees. This seems to be an ideal location for a family get-together which some of our neighbors were enjoying. Plus the crew who take you to your spot are excellent at giving you exact instructions while you back in. All the people who work here are just wonderful which makes the stay a nice event. They accept Passport America for Monday through Friday night. The rate posted does not reflect that discount. The negatives are that you are in the middle of nowhere with VERY limited Wi-Fi access. (For decent reception, you have to sit at a bench next to the small building where the Wi-Fi is located. In 50 degree weather this is not a fun experience.) We used this for a departure point for Yellowstone Park. We would not do that again; it is just too far away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good things about the park: the sites are nice, the surroundings are beautiful and it's quiet. The park is also quite easy to find since they put signs at the crossings. Not so good and reason why I give only a 7-rating: There's only one single restroom-shower for each men & women which in addition, wasn't very clean. Both weren't right away disgusting but dusty. The trash bins were full and seemed as if they haven't been cleaned for a couple of days. The WiFi is only available in a small area of the park and the signal is weak. Would stay here again, still. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is the Field of Dreams for golf. Not that they have a championship course but the location is unique. This park and golf course are wonderful. The view of the barley and wheat fields are beautiful. Take a short walk and see the back of the Grand Tetons. The people are nice and the place is quiet and clean. We were going to stay one night but stayed longer. If you come through this area don't miss the place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV Park is a must! The RV park sits on a small 18 hole golf course. The golf course is NOT an Arnold Palmer or Jack Nickolas course, but it is still fun to play. The RV sites are set back in a large patch of Aspen Trees. The sites can be tight but the staff ensure they bring you in and help you park. This can be tricky if your towing, but they have ways of helping you. Reservations are recommended and if your destination brings you through Ashton Idaho, this is a nice place to stop. There is great access into Island Park and the Mesa Falls loop as well as not a bad trip into West Yellowstone! The golf is reasonable at 9 bucks for 9 holes and 18 bucks for 18 holes. Cart rental is the same: 9 for nine and 18 for 18. The course is an open course, they don't take tee times. You walk on and play! They do not have an automatic sprinkler system so the hoses and sprinklers run 24/7. For the peace and quite, and price, this is a very nice place. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table. I had no trouble leveling. Enjoy! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just passing through on our way to Yellowstone, but wasn't supposed to arrive in Yellowstone until the next day. So we spotted this small RV Park / Bed and Breakfast on the side of the road on our way. No Wi-Fi or cable TV, but that was not a big deal. It took three sites to find one that was level, but there were only about 6 other rigs there for this one night. Lots of shade. Good dog walk area. So a few points off for no Wi-Fi and cable TV, and the unlevel sites here and there. A friendly host. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Stopped here based on the review, and because Island Park was full. Big mistake. Photos on website very misleading. Dumpy, sideways "sites" arranged in a line mostly under shade trees, next to fields which yield a bumper crop of mosquitoes big enough to carry off your rig. Bathroom with shower was clean but only one for each gender. Owner never showed up and after struggling to level the coach with the bugs biting, we left. Never to return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a "no frills" family operated park adjacent the family farm. The shade trees have been growing since the family purchased the farm about 60 years ago (very mature shade trees). The management is "hands on", friendly and very attentive. We did not utilize the laundry/shower facilities, but at a quick glance they seemed immaculate and well maintained as the park was generally. The "Teton Peaks" are located about 70 miles to the East and could be seen from the park. We enjoyed an extremely quiet and peaceful stay, and will definitely stay here again.
