Simple, but well kept KOA. Offered free "Continental breakfast" of muffins, hardboiled eggs, and other such baked goods you'd usually get at the Sam's Club or BJs. Bathrooms could use updating. While very clean, they appeared to be some type of modular building that was retrofitted with lined shower stalls. The stalls are rather small although they incorporate a seat. Sufficient bathroom shelf space but the mirror is too low for tall folks. Overall, this KOA is a known entity in the middle of nowhere. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There are options for technically much nicer RV parks very close to this one. However, there's something about this place that really feels good. It's old, it's spacious, it has a lot of eccentric character. It even has a creepy pool. The owner is friendly and realistic, and asked us to keep the dogs on leash, because many folks pull up and let their dogs just run. And since there were only 2 other motorhomes in the entire, very large park - it would seem that would be the thing to do. But no. Very Pet Friendly. Only 30 amp and we didn't care. The park host is the highlight. In this large barren park, he is genuine, helpful, entertaining, and respectful all at once. Make sure you have some time to talk to him. Otherwise, there's no real logical reason to stay at this park. As for the rating, 4 stars goes to the lower than average condition of the park, and 5 to the service provided by the owner and host. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are open and level. Yes, there are trains but only 2 the entire time we were there, none at night. Follow signs to Green River State Park Campground and go just 200 feet past that entrance to find AOK on the right. Signage for the State Park is large and distracting, making it hard to notice AOK's sign. There are no cottonwood trees to dodge either. Nice folks. We will stay every time we pass through the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The owner is a great person. Frankly, the park is in a semi-shutdown condition and she only accepts self-contained rigs for 1 week or more. That said, her rates are VERY fair. Her park is in an excellent location: off the main road but not too far off the main road. I enjoyed my stay and getting to know Green River and all the things to do around the region. Look into the "Mini Grand Canyon" and Goblin Valley State Park, and Wild Horse Canyon. A very wild and remote region! If you visit, encourage the owner to stick with it and keep her park open! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed at this park several times on our way to and from Denver. It is not fancy and does not have any amenities, but is good for one night on the road. The rate of $20.00 (electric, water & cable) is a bargain. Sewer is available for an additional $5.00. The manager is very friendly. There are trains that come through during the night that create noise, but it is not too bad. Stop at the restaurant on the river in town and order their chicken fried steak. It's great! I can't remember its name, but it's easy to find. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not fancy, but the services all worked quite well. The manager is very friendly and helpful. The rates are very low for today's world, with no mickey mouse charges for extra vehicles, pets, etc. Train tracks are very close, but you get used to the trains quickly - either there were none during the night, or we didn't hear them. We've used this park 3 times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is run down,and looks like an old KOA. The pool behind the office is not kept, and is dirty, etc. There are very few trees, the ones it has are taken by people living there. Even for $20 full hookups, the regulars living there are scary. Go to the state park if even for one night and move on. The town has lots of closed businesses and is very run down. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is just down the street from Green River State Park. We went there because the State Park did not have full hookups. It is a great value @ $20/night including cable. It is an older park with mature trees and large sites. When passing through Green River it is a great place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sunday, May 5 – Goblin Valley State Park, Utah This campground is off of route 24 about 20 miles north of Hanksville, Utah then follow the signs in. Very well marked! The GPS may take you on an unpaved road but don’t go that way follow the directions using the signs. All roads in are paved. It sits in the San Rafael Reef and the landscape is different with sandstone goblins that look like they are from outerspace. The movie Galaxy Quest was filmed here. There are 24 sites without hookups but the bathhouse does have showers. The campground is surrounded by rocks to protect the sites from the wind but the sand can still blow. One can hike or drive to the observation point to view the formations and even walk the steps down to get a closer view. All sites are paved with a screen picnic table. There are exhibits at the Visitor Center, an OHV stage area and an amphitheater. It was a stopover for us and a great place to camp. $16 a night and all sites were taken so one might want to reserve a site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Basic, rustic campground in beautiful setting with trails starting in the campground. Sites are mostly widely spaced, concrete backins with fire rings, grills, and shaded picnic tables. It can be very gritty when the wind picks up. No utilities (there is potable water and a dump at the campground, but we did not use either). No cell phone service. The closest signal was on the entry road at intersection of Temple Mountain Road and Goblin Valley Road; there is a parking area at the intersection. No wifi and no satellite TV, as the mesa to the immediate southwest of the campground blocks the sky. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a few nights. The campground is nestled up in a cove against the mountian. It is a wonderful area for your kids to climb and venture in the goblins and little hills. At every campsite they have a firepit and a covered awning. All the roads are paved. They have a dump station at the campground. This is a very family active area. I had to give this a lower rating beause they do not regulate the speeds people drive. I thought the employees at the park drove too fast. The Valley of Goblins is very close. There is also another hike for your family outside the park called Little Wild House. It is about 4 miles away. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We didn't have reservations but they are recommended because of being a busy park. We didn't like the check-in process of the ranger assigning our site. We'd rather choose our own. She gave us a "big" site, as she stated, for our 40' motorhome. When we got to it, it was a narrow, short, uneven pull-off along side of the road. When our two slideouts were extended they were extending into the road. We checked all the other open sites and chose a better one and returned to the office. Our site was changed. However, just after setting up a ranger came by and said our site was reserved for the night. However, it was not marked on the post as being reserved. So we had to move to another site for the third time. The office seemed very disorganized. The restrooms were clean. The winds came up occasionally so be prepared to bring in your awning and outside chairs, etc. will get dusty. The only shade here is received via a nice shelter around the picnic table. There are some hikes, but not easy. It's a remote area so bring all groceries. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Access is well signed and all paved. The park is nestled within some nifty rock formations. The sites all have ramadas, fire rings, and picnic tables and several are fine for big rigs. We're in a 36' with toad. There is a dump and water available but no power. No cellular connectivity. Generators are OK. This park takes reservations and when we arrived at around noon, most of the unoccupied sites had reservation tags. In fact, we got the last site (handicapped, only pull through and only water at site). I suggest you reserve in advance or arrive early. A camper and toad showed up after us and was turned around. We saw that they found a nice place to dry camp nearby so that's an option if you can't get a spot. Some wonderful scenery here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park for the remote area. The only complaint is that the wind blew quite a bit and the dust was bad. We had a nice pull through site that was easy and plenty large. Reasonably level cement pads. The picnic tables and fire grills were also on cement pads with nice shelters over and around 2 sides. They also had fire pits. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice clean park. Park folks great, informative and very helpful. The sites are paved, level and very large with great windbreak / shade cover, picnic table and fire ring / BBQ combo all on concrete patio. The Goblin Valley area is really weird and beautiful at the same time. There are a lot of trails for hikers. We are looking forward to a return trip. The roads are all completed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park. It's very green and pretty and the spots are well spaced. There were a few trains going by: I think we had about three trains during the night. Other than that, it was very nice and the camp host and rangers were very nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
For a primitive campground it was very clean. No shade, but each site has a pavilion and wind breaker. A dump station and potable water is available. Pulled our 38-foot rig into our site without a problem. Nice tent sites are also available. The road construction leading to Goblin Valley, yielded some delays. There are no services available in area, so gas up and bring whatever you need. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park with lots of scenery, great place for kids to scramble around all the Goblins. Sites are roomy and spaced well for the most part. They have no hook ups but water and a dump are available. Hike the Little Wild Horse Canyon which is nearby for a great slot canyon experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Only a handful of sites large enough for a 30 ft class A and all of the sites are small and rather crowded together but are paved and have covered picnic table areas. No electric or showers but there is potable water at the dump station. We didn't care for the cramped and open nature of the campground but Goblin Valley has some interesting rock formations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This Utah State Park campground was a pleasant surprise. The location is incredibly beautiful and scenic. The campground is new and well maintained. There's limited services and it's in the middle of nowhere, but that's part of the attraction! There are plenty of hikes nearby and Goblin valley is nearby. There are even some goblins in the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Okay, convenient overnight stop. Sites are long pull throughs with room for not unhooking tow vehicle. The park is all sand, gravel, with a few scrub weed bushes. There is a children's play area and tent site combination. Some work campers . Water good, electric a little weak for large coach on a hot day. Wifi not good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nondescript KOA in the middle of nowhere. Perfectly OK for a night. Level gravel sites, good cable and Wi-Fi. Owners are trying to grow grass and trees and place definitely looks better than the competition. Right across the street from the John Wesley Powell river museum, which is worth visiting. Good film and lots of exhibits on the Utah/Colorado river systems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The CG was about a mile off the interstate but was very quiet with no road noise. We were given a map to our FHU pull through site. It was dead level despite being mostly hard earth. There was lots of wonderful space between wide sites, grass and a pleasant amount of trees. The bathrooms and laundry were older but very clean. The office staff was very pleasant, including the owner, met as we enjoyed our free breakfast of hardboiled eggs, coffee, and bought pastries. The owner had designed the free, very fast, and easy-to-access WiFi system. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Simple, but well kept KOA. Offered free "Continental breakfast" of muffins, hardboiled eggs, and other such baked goods you'd usually get at the Sam's Club or BJ's. Bathrooms could use updating. While very clean, they appeared to be some type of modular building that was retrofitted with lined shower stalls. The stalls are rather small although they incorporate a seat. Sufficient bathroom shelf space but the mirror is too low for tall folks. Overall, this KOA is a known entity in the middle of nowhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are mostly dirt with a little gravel and a bit of weed-grass areas in between. There is not much shade here only in a few sites. The Wi-Fi was strong. Free coffee and pastries were provided when the office opened at 8am. The operator was very friendly and helpful. You can walk to the nearby restaurant which had good enchiladas. It was a good one night stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground host was very nice. Kureg coffee and free continental breakfast. Great one night stop on the way to Capitol Reef. Typical KOA restrooms, efficient and clean. Sites were level, gravel, not a lot of shade, and very dusty! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good stopping point off I-70 with quick on and off. If you do not stop here there is nothing for many miles. Friendly managers and clean restrooms. We stop here every time we leave Denver and head west on I-70. Typical KOA with gravel roads and sites. The sites are level with full hookups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good overnight stop. Staff was friendly and helpful; the campground was older, but well maintained. Showers had good water pressure and consistent temperature. The site we had was level. When we arrived the winds were very strong, and a lot of dust was in the air, so we did not explore the area. This was a good standard KOA campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Really good for an overnight stop on the road. Great little oasis in the high desert – friendly office staff and the campground seemed to be well-maintained. If we’d been staying longer or if we’d been traveling in the summer we probably would have wanted one of their spots closer to the river with trees. Seems like the town has a melon theme going on so it’s probably a rocking’ place in the late summer. I wouldn’t plan on buying groceries when you arrive in Green River –one grocery store and it closes at 8 p.m. Pretty tight to maneuver an RV with toad in the “downtown” area where the store is anyway. I saw two other RV parks from the main street through town and they both looked okay from the road. We chose KOA because we’ve found them to be good overnight stop in most cases. We weren’t disappointed. Didn't use the Wi-Fi, but my AT&T 3G card worked well. Price reflects KOA Discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fine place to stay, albeit a bit overpriced. The sites are level, some have shade trees; there are hook-ups at both ends of the pull-throughs, and the bathrooms and showers are standard KOA which we have found, as a rule, is above your standard off-the-rack RV park; especially in a town of only 923 people! We stayed here so we could go to the John Wesley Powell River Museum which is just across the street right on the Green River: and is a MUST SEE if you have the time. We would stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very standard KOA that offers easy off and easy on to highway. Gravel lot and sites. The site we had was very level and most of the others looked level. Showers and toilets very clean, and it serves its purpose as a one night stop on the way to somewhere else. Going east and west, there is nothing for miles if you go past Green River. It always amazes me when people expect a five star resort from a KOA that is just off the highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Oh my, what to say on this one? Once again I wish there was the ability on rvparkreviews to post photos. Yes, I know this campground website has photos, but I have no clue where they were taken. We had a poorly marked (as were all sites in our area) site (although it was quite long, as we needed) in a dirt parking area. The electric was spotty at best; truly read the electric was AWFUL. As a previous review stated the town has little to offer. We had intended to stay here for three or four nights, but decided one was about two too many! Even if this "place" were $10 a night it would be over priced. We would never stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a good place to stop for one night. The WiFi was weak and sketchy. There was no cable TV or local TV but most sites are open to the sky so if you have a dish you should be ok. We were able to use our dish. The restaurant across the street gives you 10% if you have your KOA receipt. We found the restaurant to be very good. We would stay overnight again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really disappointed in this CG. This is the only KOA we stayed at on 4500 mile trip with grand kids. Chose it out of directory because it was near where we were going to land for the night and it had a pool. Dirty, barren site with no grass. While it had a couple of trees they did not provide much shade and it was hot. The Wi-Fi was useless. Now the good points. The pool was large and cool and refreshing and the kids enjoyed the slide. The hosts were more than accommodating. Actually drove me over to a gas station to get an empty propane tank refilled. (They had propane on the property but the person who could operate it was not there.) Way too much money for this kind of operation. Should have found somewhere else but the kids wanted the pool. Would not stay here again (but would like to visit the hosts). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA with good pool, nice staff, free gourmet coffee that you brew yourself, & some trees for shade. Nice overnight stop along I-70, but the town has little to offer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice location, awesome pool, big trees in backup spots 1-5. Good restaurant on the river next to park. With military discount and three kids (6,10,13) the 'damage' was $51, wow!!! Park was empty when we arrived at noon, 1/3 full at dinner time. Killer pool, kids loved it. $51 vs 101 degrees F means KOA wins! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Truly an oasis in this stretch of road. Very friendly staff. Nicely shaded pull through lot. Very clean bathrooms. Nice and quiet. KOA campers receive 10% off the Tamarisk restaurant next door. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Some sites are closed due to winter weather, but the camp host was friendly and helped us find a full hookup site with cable TV and made sure we got set up O.K. This is a nice park. Good location. One hour to Moab Utah. Fifteen miles to Goblin Valley. Lots of services within walking distance, including a nice restaurant that gives campers a discount. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Like many of the parks I have been in since late August, this park was sparsely occupied. It has FHU, Wi-Fi, cable TV and a pool. Everything worked fine and we were able to enjoy the pool with just a handful of others. That's been a rarity on this trip. There were some trees and in this otherwise typical desert landscape. Sites were adequate sized. There was a decent restaurant at the park entrance and you can walk to the Green River. The main part of town is across the bridge over the river about half a mile. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only reason I rated this park as high as a "5" is because the owner/manager(?) was so friendly and helpful. About 1/3 of the sites have a tree or any grass and those sites will not accommodate a 40' RV. 50 amp sites are pull throughs only and they are all dirt. Dirt roads and dirt sites. Not gravel! Even the sites with grass are with dirt pads. Wifi and satellite reception were excellent. Like many western states we were serenaded by trains throughout the night. For those of us without children driving further down the road may be a better option. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An oasis in the middle of the desert with green grass and shade trees at each site. It's next to Green River Golf course and Green River, both of which can be accessed from campground. Golf summer special: $20 all day with a cart. Played as much as I could for the time we were there. It's convenient to several National Parks. Watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melons are grown in area and can be purchased reasonably. The evenings cool down to 60-70 degrees, with daytimes in the 90's. Am going back next year for a couple of weeks of golf. We camped here in a Motorhome.
the grass has turned to weeds, and dying grass. It would be better to go total gravel in such a hot, dry place. The price is too expensive for the park, plus for the first time, I was charged for my pet. I will probably not come by here again, and will pick another park if we need to stop over in Green River. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate is after the Value Kard discount. Hosts were very friendly. This IS the desert folks. I would cost a fortune to keep more than a little grass green. They were constantly watering while I was there. All though there were a lot of families, kid noise was confined to the pool area. Wifi worked great. Slot was as level as most. I didn't have to unhook. Coffee is on any time. Continental breakfast from 8 to 10 am. Store is small but has necessaties. I will return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
How well you like this park, depends on your site. If you want 50-AMPS and cable TV, you'll be in a small dirt area with no trees and sticker weeds. The site map was very confusing, and we had no help finding our space (although there was a young man running around in the golf cart, we were on our own). There are some very nice shaded areas, but they don't have full services. Wifi worked fine. Very small pet run by propane service tanks. We haven't tried other Green River parks, but this is purely an overnighter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Near the highway, so there is highway noise. Our assigned site wasn't level so we moved to the next site over, which was. The pet walk area is about 5 feet by 15 feet long...not very pet friendly. Staff friendly. Some old beat-up units in campground, too...must have been monthly rentals. OK for an overnight stop, but wouldn't stay there for any length of time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice KOA near highway, and a great stopover. Friendly management, nice pool, and the rest rooms and showers were spotless. I shall definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a nice KOA this is! Our pull thru was at least 80 feet long and about 50 feet wide!! Level, grass, shade trees, and a clean bath! Ed and Elaine, owners, were very friendly, as was Harley, their sweet beagle. They had free coffee and danish in the morning, which is a nice touch. This is probably the best KOA we've stayed in and we'll return!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice little park. Hard packed gravel roads and sites. Good WiFi reception and decent cable in some sites. The owners are in the process of upgrading more of the sites and improving the existing ones. Very nice folks running the place. Good eating right next door as well as close to the river walk. Our fiver is only 23 feet so we could leave it hooked up for our overnight stay. A major weekend destination so make reservations for Friday through Sunday during warmer months. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Other people have given this a poorer review based on the fact that it is in Green River Utah. You have to know that you are getting into before your get there. This area is very depressed, however you wouldn't know it if all you had to judge by was this KOA. Yes it is all gravel, but like concrete when you drive over it. They have 5- 50amp service sites that are long, which is a concern when you are 45' towing a 30' trailer. For a super small town KOA this place is immaculate with nice people. Remote, yes. Super access to I-70, yes. All services worked like a charm and we have been an plenty of places with no wWi-Fi or sat TV. No problem. I admit, not much grass, but we saw white tailed deer at sunset in a adjacent melon farm. Yes, Green River grows melons. Who knew! I don't have a way to fault people who are this friendly and offer gourmet beverages all day, along with extra goodies. These people are great. Just don't expect Green River to be something more than it is. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is without doubt the least attractive of any RV park we've stayed in – but, as one reviewer pointed out, this IS Green River. It is close to the interstate (I-70) and a good place for an overnight stop in a rather remote area. Sites are level, with a scant amount of grass in between, but the park's streets are sandy soil with little gravel. The water hook-up is quite close to the ground and could be a prime target for any passing dog. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is a truck stop a few blocks west and on the opposite site of the street (over river and more into town) with diesel prices significantly lower than those near the interstate. Wi-fi and cable TV are excellent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First time here. Spent four days using it as a base for hiking. Owned/operated by a retired couple. He always wanted to own a KOA. Friendly folks. Free gourmet coffee and popcorn. But is is Green River. Not pretty to look at. Good place to stop overnight or for a base. Reliable WiFi which is important if still working. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not much to look at. Mostly gravel sites with very little shade. Recommended for over night only. I had a 30 AMP electrical connection that kept tripping the site's circuit breaker. Very hot here in July - over 100 degrees when we checked in. Had to put refrigerator and hot water heater on gas in order to keep a/c running without tripping the circuit breaker. Was told by owner/manager that this had never happened before - not very helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Prior reviews made us hesitant to stop here, but we're glad we did. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful - cable TV connections are odd and they provided a "loaner" cable extension. Pool was lots of fun for our grandson, with a water slide. Restaurant next door gives KOA campers a 10% discount. Our site was shaded and grassy as we could back in. However the hook-ups are at the front, so be sure to have an extension cord and long hose. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camp was OK for our needs,it was quiet and close to I-70, within driving distance to Arches & Canyonlands National Parks. Not much happening in the Green River area. Employees were friendly and accommodating, in what seemed to be a transistion into a KOA park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is being converted to a KOA park. The new owners are instituting the usual KOA add-on fees for cable TV, etc. We have been camping here for 30 years, and passed this year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New owners, not very polite. To busy talking on the phone to future sister in law. Called and made reservation but when we arrived she said she didn't take reservations and just ask for peoples names. Sandy level sights, not much grass. Needs a lot of TLC and it could be a very nice place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
Fine for an overnight stop but considered it just a little bit $$ for what it is. Easy in and out for our 30 ft class A, nice shade in a couple of sites. Dump station not particularly well situated but serviceable. Restrooms/showers were also fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very pretty state park with large spacious sites. Restrooms/showers were clean. We stayed 4 nights and would stay here again if in the area. The only down side of the park is the train noise at 11pm, 3am & 5am. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, well maintained park. Usually quiet except when the trains came by. We stayed here and then drove down to Arches and Canyonlands. This park is better than most of the trailer parks in Moab. There is a dump station in the park and there are several faucets for fresh water. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lovely, well manicured, quiet park with large sites and lots of trees and grass, right on the Green River. No swimming, but boat launch available. Electric only sites. Easy access to I-70 so is a good stopover for 1 night or R&R only. Town is dying; many buildings closed and abandoned. Sad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a quick one-night stay for us. I would only visit again for that reason. Lots of green grass and shaded sites. Freeway and train traffic was far away and not an issue. People were noisy until late at night, but we may have just hit the wrong day. Seems to be a jumping off point for rafters on the Green River. In fact they were having loud conversations and laughing at 6am! Easy to find and in the city, but no "city" noise. We would stay again for a quick one-nighter, but not as a destination. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this State Park! Where can you camp overnight and play 9 holes of golf on a pretty fair course for $26? There are no site hookups but the TV reception of Salt Lake City channels was excellent! (We use an inverter.) We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall this is a nice state park. It's a slice of green in an otherwise very, very dry area. Each site has level, paved pads although they were a bit of a squeeze for our 40 foot-er. There is a lot of grass and shade/trees between each site. There are good views of the golf course from several sites. The park is dog-friendly, but you can't walk on the surrounding golf-course so the greenery is not for doggie. There are no hookups here, but there is a central dump and water. Showers are a bonus. There is not too much to do in surrounding area, but it's a good stop-over place while traveling in/out of Utah. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No Hook-ups, but if you can work around that, a very nice park with a lot of grass and trees. Interior roads and pads all paved, and the site we had was very close to level. Nice concrete pads around the picnic tables. Some pull throughs and most of the back-ins seemed to have enough room to maneuver. Could be a bit hard to find your site if you arrive after dark. Fairly good separation between sites. Several live-in hosts. We would stay here again. Reserve America charges $8.00 for on line reservation. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a lovely find! Perfect after a long day's drive! Acres of grassy park like sites. There is a river! Yet, we were surprised! We couldn't wait to park, pull out the chairs and pour the wine. Breathe! Slept like babies. Even though there were no hook-ups, we were happy campers! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This state park has a golf course, and some of the RV sites look out at the course, or are near the river, which has a boat launch. Our site was a pull-through, huge and fairly level. We had tried a different site first but couldn't back into it with our 25-foot class A without hitting a nearby fence, so we moved. We gave this park a "10" because the space was so great after many nights in very tight private parks. The rate included an $8 reservation fee; drive-in rate is $16. We were there on a Friday night and the park was full. Very popular place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with paved and level sites, grass and shade trees abound. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Although there are no hook-ups, water spigots are located throughout the park and a dump station is located near the park entrance/exit. If tenting, be advised that the lawn areas are watered regularly. The park is pet friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A gorgeous RV park, located in the middle of a golf course ($10 to play) - watch for carts passing through! Grass, mature trees, lots of shade, a lot of room between sites. Roads and sites all paved. Most sites are quite long, there are a full pull throughs available. The roads are little tight for really long units. No services, but host says they are planning electric for some of the sites by the end of 2008. Although showing age (small holes in tiles, rickety shower doors), the bathrooms and showers are sparkling clean. Very pleasant, friendly hosts. Short walk to river access, docks and boat launch. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a lovely, no hook up state park located along I-70. The area is shaded by mature cottonwoods, the site driveways are mostly rather short and back-ins. The park is along the Green River and adjacent to a State golf course - a pretty 9-holer for about $10 per round. Lots of mosquitoes on the river side and deer flies, too - ouch! The showers and restrooms are clean, the staff friendly and usually the place is empty although the nearby group camp gets some action. Excellent break point between Richfield and Grand Junction Colorado and possibly as a base camp for rafting the Green River. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Price reflects 7 days stay. There are 100 ft pull-through sites in the back. Easy in and out with a 25 ft HDT and 35 ft trailer, but do have to be careful of low hanging branches. Did hear a little road noise and some train horns during the evenings and early mornings, but otherwise quiet. Did have two evenings we had to close our windows due to acrid smelling campfires. 66 channels of great cable TV. Wi-Fi was worthless. Put up our outdoor antenna and it helped some of the time, but not all of the time. Found out the best time to get on-line was 1 AM to 6 AM. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park has gravel road ways and sites. This is a desert area and they have tried to grow grass between the sites but it is not succesful. The sites are level and easy to get into. The sites we had were long enough that we did not have to unhook. They had discounts on fuel available, the fueling was right outside the park along with a rv and car wash. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well maintained campground. Road is paved but the pad is gravel, level pull throughs with good big rig access. Very quiet with space and privacy around the RV, shade trees, grass and picnic table. Bathrooms are clean. Lovely dog walk area with pick up bags. Wi-Fi and cell are great. There is a gas station, small grocery store and RV/car wash adjacent to the campground. Not many food stores or good places to eat, but its a good base for sightseeing. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Mix of good and bad here. Liked the spacious sites, clean bathroom, nearby market where you can do after-hours check-in, dog parks with pea gravel. Didn't like lack of grass, unattractive trees, sticker plants sticking the dog paws, few good TV channels. Good place to do an overnight stay, but I feel the park is overpriced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy well marked access off Business I-70. Older park in town. Nice laundry with clean, well maintained shower/restrooms. Friendly staff. Paved/gravel roads with hard pack shaded gravel sites. Larger than average space between the long sites with picnic table at each site. Nice “off the leash” dog park. My Corgi was very happy with the park and the complimentary dog treat. Close to stores, such as they are in Green River UT. Utilities all conveniently located and worked properly. Free Wi-Fi and with 4 bar Verizon cell phone signal. Quiet setting with a little traffic noise. Not much available along I-70, Green River is it, unless you want to go 60 miles south to Moab. I have stayed here several times in the past and will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an overnight stay for us. There was a little shade, but the park is very poorly kept. It does have the nicest dog park I have ever seen, but that was the only good thing. It is an old park with little care. I would not stay again for more than an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with others who have reviewed this park. It has nice long, wide sites and is quiet. It is not scenic, but it is a pleasant overnight stop. The best feature is the RV/truck wash that is just to the right of the exit from the campground. It works well and was extremely convenient to enter. I wish more campgrounds had such an easy-to-use RV wash. The 3-cent fuel discount was meaningless since the station was the highest priced in view. Price reflects FMCA discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has seen better days. It does offer some shade and a stop on your way through Utah, but needs some work. The laundromat is new and very well equipped, but was dirty. There's an RV wash area, but it was very dirty and not appealing. The staff is friendly, but I didn't feel welcomed at check-in. It's quiet. The town itself is near it's end, it appears. A decent place to spend a day or two to wash clothes and rest, is the best that I can say. The price included the Good Sam discount, but it's still overpriced. Wi-Fi is excellent, however, as is Verizon service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Our rating is based on the fact that it is a little high priced for the area. But it is a fantastic over night location. The owner tends to put you in the back of the park where it is very quiet. Sites are extremely long and wide; great for tow vehicles. Any length coach and tow will work. Utilities were good. Free cable but ours didn't work. We didn't complain as it was one night and we used our satellite. Wi-Fi was not great. Wonderful dog park where they can run free. Would stay here again as overnighter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well spaced park with paved paths and grass between slips. Bathrooms are newer (although the motion sensor lights and fans are annoying when they turn off too early). Showers are narrow but water is hot and pressure is good. Would use again. Price is for AAA and electric/water. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is a convenient, overnight stopping point. Might be a really nice place in the summer time, being so close to the Green River. The 50 amp service on our site only had 70 volts on one leg and several adjacent sites had the same on the 20 amp outlets. USE CAUTION when hooking up. Campground personnel indicate electrician had been called. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with most of the previous comments about this park. The sites are long--we parked a 32' fifth wheel with a Wrangler behind it. The sites are narrow, but level enough that we didn't unhook the truck. They've let the grass die,although there seems to be irrigation in place. The cable TV is not very clear, but the Wi-Fi is good. The lady who checked us in was efficient, but not particularly friendly. We had just been dry camping, or we would have stayed in Green River SP. Not a bad park, but it could be much better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is really laid out weird, during my stay there I saw several big rigs doing circles in the park trying to find their space. I stayed here based on my visit in 08 and this park has changed, gone is the nice grass. I found goats head thorns in my space along with trash, dog doo doo and twigs. The site was bare ground. This park is not being kept up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I rated this park based on the location. If it was located in a popular area I would've rated it lower. However, it has everything you NEED. The Wi-Fi is excellent, I'm able to get satellite without a problem, it has the best off-lead dog park I've ever seen anywhere. When you register you will get a coupon for Blimpie's, gas and other stuff. They have a wide selection of cable channels but I didn't use it. The sites were narrow but adequate - barely. There are several gas stations in town that any size MH or 5ver can enter and depart easily. The area is very dusty, not the park's fault, just the way it is in this area. The only negative I have is that, like so many other small towns, the people who serve you at the gas station, store, wherever are totally uninterested in you as if you are imposing on them. Again, this is not a knock on this park, just an advisory for anyone expecting to have a rip roaring good time in Green River. I will always stay here when passing through Green River and recommend it to others. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has great potential, but is not well maintained. What little grass there is between sites is mostly dead from lack of care and water, while the Golf Course on the other side of the fence has beautiful greens. Sites are very close together and management tends to stack RV's right next to each other even when the park is 75% empty. Manager does not seem to be happy with her role, or maybe we just caught her on a bad day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place for an overnight, not much to do in town. Discount for Gas/Diesel at their station next door, but prices were cheaper down the street. We stayed 2 nights, meeting family before we traveled together. We would stop here again for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the check-in was friendly, quick and efficient. There are many sites in the back that are not visible from the street which is where we stayed. The sites are loose gravel and fairly level though not very wide. There are trees around most sites. The campground was not crowded, and we were spaced sufficiently far from others to allow some privacy. The utilities worked fine. The Wi-Fi was just okay - good one minute, gone the next. Our Verizon service worked great. Nothing necessarily wrong with this park, just nothing special. There are trains running but it wasn't too intrusive. Our rate reflects full hook-ups with a Good Sam discount, which is pricey in my opinion. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice staff, bathrooms older but very clean and well maintained, our site had shade and very level, Wi-Fi was slow but overall we were very pleased with our stay. The $35 was our total cost including kids and taxes. Easy overnight place to stay off of I-70 on our way to Zion. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice stopover. Free Wi-Fi is great. Free Cable TV. Probably has the only trees for miles around. Very business like, competent check in. Clean and shady. The name fits. Has everything we need for the night. Will definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate paid reflects Good Sam discount. As others have mentioned, nice folks. While there are "some" shaded sites, this is the high desert after all. Sites further back in the park have more shade. The restrooms and showers are older but well maintained. Well off the Interstate but there is the railroad not too far away. Many of the sewer hookups are well forward in the sites. Dog runs: there are 2 which are well built, well maintained and clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice spot, whether for quick I-70 overnight, or to visit nearby Arches National Park. Every site seems to be pull-through. Some cabins available if traveling with RV-less friends Excellent dog run -- actually a large doggie playground. Two minor negatives: Cable TV provided many channels but mostly with low quality picture (weak signal, probably). Wi-Fi had strong signal but intermittent connection. Nice bonus: Campground gave 3 cents/gallon discount at adjacent gas station that was already cheapest in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is for FHU 50 amp pull-through site with Escapees discount. Because of the time of the year, the office was closed and a sign directed you to check-in at the nearby convenience store which was an easy walk away. Layout is not good with several tight turns: one 5th wheel who came in late and did not unhitch, had its truck sticking out blocking one of the park roads. We stayed for three nights while exploring the area and had no problems with noise as mentioned in an earlier review. Okay for a one or two night stop, but how in the world Good Sam rates this park a 8/10/9, I'll never know. Three cent per gallon fuel discount coupon with stay. We would stay here again in the future, but only for a couple of nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We intended to stay for several days but thank goodness I only paid for 1 night. Ask owner/manager if her daughter and son-in-law still live on property - if so keep going. We were placed in a barren spot close to showers but kept up most of night by a party at above mentioned person's home. I cannot say any more - nice lady but stuck in a real bad situation. Be forewarned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We didn't intend to spend the night in Green River, but we were glad we did. The lady who checked us in was very efficient and we were set up and relaxing for the evening 15 minutes from the time we pulled off the interstate. Large park with very few campers in October. We were assigned a site in the back of the park (very quiet) and they seemed to deliberately space campers apart from one another somewhat to give more room. If full to capacity, you'd really be packed in. We would stay here again if we ever found ourselves in Green River, Utah. Lots to do in the area for those fortunate enough to stay a few days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects weekly price. We choose this campground because we couldn't find a big rig site in Moab for a week. The manager was very pleasant. Our site was a large and level pull-thru. All utilities worked even though our surge suppressor registered high voltage a couple of times. The Wi-Fi was a little slow but our Verizon air card worked well. Cable worked well. The laundry is very large but it it open to the public, not just the campground. It is not the cleanest and about half of the machines were out of order but I managed to get our laundry done just fine. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just stayed an overnight on our way to Southern Utah and Arizona. The place was OK and peaceful, and the facilities were clean. The biggest drawback we noticed in our short stay was the very poor WiFi coverage. We had to bring the laptop out of the RV to pick-up the signal, and even so we kept losing the connection. It was a real challenge to even check our e-mail, let alone answer to the messages. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Big rig sites are very long and level. 50 amp, full hook-up, cable TV and WiFi, clean restrooms. We did have trouble with not enough room for our four slides due to trees, and still reach utilities, but we were able to move to a different site. Some trees throughout the park could stand trimming. This park was by far the nicest in this town as we looked at the others. Great for a couple of days to visit the National Parks nearby. The town of Green River has nothing to offer in the way of dining or groceries. We would stay here again and would recommend the park for a convenient place to spend the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shady Acres is indeed shady, and grassy. They have a special area for dogs to run and play, just lovely for our pooch who is inside or tied up otherwise. All sites seemed fine, plus they are large. They give a coupon for the Blimpie next door. One issue is the laundry: have never seen a washer so small. The one normal sized load took a large expensive washer, and the dryer, didn't. So: stay here, but do your laundry elsewhere! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I can understand where the previous raters come from. But: I will say that the dog run is the best we have seen on our travels. The staff is nice, cable TV was just a little lacking in clarity, internet was good. Overall this is more typical of what we find in the crossroads of middle America. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
OK for overnight but a kind of rundown place. Check your site first. Ones in front are near the laundromat but limited shade. Many more sites and more trees in the back area. Our cable TV was awful, had to use box at next (empty) site, which was a bit better. Verizon cell and broadband OK. We really liked using the RV wash next to the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet park next to small golf course. Dirt and sparse grass at sites with lots of shade trees. Huge dog park with divided areas for small and large dogs. The town of Green River itself has very little to offer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We needed a place to stay over Memorial Day weekend, and this looked like the nicest park in Green River. The place is a bit run down, with sites that are close together and dusty, a laundry room with some machines working and others not, and a run down little gas station/store/sandwich shop at the front. The proximity to Arches NP is best thing this park has to offer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Don't expect a resort type facility with manicured lawns, spas on every corner and bathrooms done in porcelain tile in Green River, Utah. If you need a decent place to park your rig for a few nights in this locale, I don't think you'll do better than Shady Acres. It's all gravel, but that's the most practical thing to do in this environment. The big rig sites are long and roomy, and the utilities are very good. The bathrooms and showers are immaculate, and the management personnel are friendly and helpful. If you want a nice place to walk your dog, put him in the toad and go to the Town Park on Main Street; he'll have a good time while you marvel at the huge missile at the front of the park. There is one really good reason to spend some time in Green River; the John Wesley Powell River Exploration Museum, which is right on the bank of the river. The displays are of excellent quality, the story of the exploration of the Green and Colorado Rivers is well told, and the movie that they show is first rate; best we've seen. The staff is super friendly and helpful; five stars to this place! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a place to stay overnight on the way to somewhere else...an older but adequate RV park. We didn't have water hookup because it was still winterized, but they did provide 1 winterized faucet we could use to fill our on board tank before going to site. The sites are mostly concrete level pads, but gravel and dirt was everywhere else. This would be pretty bad in the summer with the dust and wind!! Satellite signal was hard to acquire due to the trees around our site. You check in at the gas station/store in front of the RV park. The bathrooms were very clean, but pretty cold in March!! Verizon cell & card worked very well here, but the park's printed channel guide was not correct, and some channels had pretty fuzzy reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Above rate reflects 10% discount. Long and level pull through gravel sites, roads a little tight, free CATV, free WIFI that actually works!, grills and tables at each site. "Buy one get one free" coupon for Blimpie sub shop & discount coupon for filling station next door. Good power and utilities. This would be a good place to stay while visiting the local area if you could get a better rate by paying weekly or monthly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shore Services: 50amp, sewer good, water 40 @ psi. WiFi: strong signal. AT&T cell phone: good signal. Sprint Air card: very good signal using Freedom antenna. Verizon Air card: very good signal using Freedom antenna. Cable TV was fair, many channels are snowy. Sites are solid, paved in gravel, may have some asphalt in it. Sites are long enough to park a tow vehicle in front with plenty of room around it. Sites are close with grass between. Awning does not touch neighbor but it's close. Roads are gravel with asphalt. The restrooms are nice and very clean. The laundry is large and open to the town's people. Washers are good and dryers use a quarter for 7 minutes. No long term tenants. Directv satellite had a good signal at end of site. Used Good Sams discount and paid with a credit card. No additional charges. This is a good park. Not great, but the site is level and long with a bit of grass between some. Better than the KOA down the road which is all dirt sites and roads but has grass between sites. Owner is nice, expected to be a grouch from previous reviews but this was not the case for me. Some shorter sites have concrete pad for the RV. Tow vehicles may not fit on the pad but fits in the sites. There is a great, small gravel dog run. One for large dogs and one for small dogs. This is a good park for the area. If you expect lots of grass: this entire area is dirt, sand and gravel. Hard to get grass to grow. I would stay here again if I come to this area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is just a place to stay while on the road but don't forget to visit the Powel museum, there are very nice people there, and be sure to check out the Green River Gyser. The campground desk lady seemed grouchy but the grounds were clean and very spacious. The store was convenient and great ice cream. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV park is basically just a place to stop on your way to somewhere else. It needs some ground maintenance. The free cable TV was marginal. There was free WI-FI. At the time of our visit they were in the process of putting in a nice size dog park. This is a real plus in my book. The office personnel was very pleasant. They had a large laundry facility and a RV and Car Wash next door. Lots of big trees for shade. I would stay here again if it was only for one night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a stopover for us on a longer trip. I would have rated this campground higher had the site we had been level. Since the site was not level I had to disconnect for the night and spent a lot of extra time leveling our trailer which is not fun late at night after a long drive. The restrooms and showers were clean and the staff was friendly. Their fuel discount though is a joke, diesel was cheaper just up the road we found out. The nightly rate of $40 we paid was for two adults and three children including any taxes We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not sure what bees were in the bonnets of the previous posters, but we found this to be a perfectly serviceable campground. We had wanted to stay at the Green River State Park (which is visible from Shady Acres) because we are state park people, but with no hookups and 103 degree temps, we opted for electric hookups. Shady Acres is between the state park and the KOA, so you can easily compare the 3. We liked the trees here, the enormous campground itself--very spacious. Our site was concrete (some are just gravel) and was level enough. Wifi worked GREAT, but we couldn't get cable TV to work. Folks at front very professional. Grass for the dog all over the place. You get coupons upon check in for the adjacent RV wash, fuel, and c-store, which is nice. We'll take 3 cents off a gallon of diesel, thank you very much. Restrooms, while old, were very clean. I'd stay here again on an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here only because of very high winds all day. Owner was disinterested, seemed to care only about getting payment. Bordered on rudeness. Pull-thru site was concrete but short as truck stuck out in front. Sewer was way in front, had to pull up 8' to dump in a.m. Had a beat-up wooden picnic table in the gravel and stickers...not a blade of grass. Glad my dog was not with me. The good: was quiet at night since not on Interstate, but none of the parks in Green River are on the interstate. I thought it was way too pricey for that facility. Won't stay there again if don't have to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is like the town of Green River - it has seen better days. There is a depressing abandoned building and scattered junk adjacent to the property (I guess it's not their fault but it still ruins the atmosphere). The pet area is a dusty lot filled with goat head thorns. The bathrooms are oldish, but clean. Wi-Fi worked well. It worked fine as an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a totally adequate RV park to stay at when either passing through or visiting the area, but it appears to have seen more prosperous times. It's kind of the typical place you'd expect to find in an out of the way area with little competition. The good points are that it has a fueling station, a convenience store, and a car/RV wash right on site. The office staff was very friendly. There were a few permanent residents living around the outskirts if the park, but they were friendly or just kept to themselves. The interior roads and site locations within this park have *the* most confusing layout I've ever encountered. After we arrived and found our spot (with some difficulty), we watched with interest as other arrivals got "lost" and resorted to getting out and walking around to look for their site. Pay close attention when you're given directions at the park office! When we stayed here there were maybe only 2 dozen rigs in the entire park, yet we found the voltage dangerously low at our site until later in the evening when things improved. Water pressure was only 43psi, which is a lower than we normally encounter at most parks. We never could get the Wi-Fi to work. Despite all that, we still wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It's almost in the middle of nowhere after all! (800) 537-8674 We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you find yourself in Green River needing an RV park, this one is probably the best choice. They have a lot of open sites and all are pull-thru. The sites are gravel and there are bits of shade. I think the price is high for what they have to offer but they know you're stuck in the middle of nowhere. Free WiFi. The day we were here there were only about 7 other rigs in the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very old park with dirt roads. I have a 45' rig and called ahead to make sure that they could accommodate a vehicle of that size. The turns were too sharp, and the trees were overgrown. My rig has new scratches thanks to these trees. The office staff (I think it was the owner) didn't want to be working, and it showed. She was less than cordial to the foreign tourists checking in ahead of me. The only redeeming feature to this park is that the Wi-Fi was very good. I think that in the future I would pick one of the other parks in Green River. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is somewhat unique in that, given its' location, it has amenities lacking at most campgrounds, i.e., adjacent to a golf course, allows dogs to be on a leash anywhere in the cg to do it's business, great wifi. It also is affiliated with a good size gas station and gives discounts on gas, a 2 for 1 deal at Blimpies, and others. Green River is a stopping point, not a destination, so the area is fairly dead. Still the campground does everything it can with what it has and is not a bad deal although it is more expensive than one would expect to pay for a site in the middle of nowhere. A warning to pet owners - grass burrs abound! I would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We actually liked this RV park. It had a nice person checking us in and the view of the mountain was beautiful. It has a basic, but fun playground and it was great to get out on the basketball court and shoot some hoops after a long day of traveling. There was a very bad storm over night and we did not experience any of the flooding a previous reviewer mentioned. They may have corrected that. The town is dead so it is more of a place to stay along your route than a destination resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has a few things going for it. Free WIFI that worked very well, even way at the back of the park were I was and cable TV. The site I had was also level. I think it is a bit pricey for the location, but if you are stopping between Denver and points west, this is a good place. I can't really say much else, dirt sites, brown grass (May) and the town is pretty much non-existent, don't look for walmart to stock up on supplies! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Priced a little high, although this is not a water front campground we had water outside our door. In fact most of the sites were flooded after a rain. That the sites had water after the rain was not bad but most of them were still holding water the next morning and all the utilities were in standing water. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground had a lot of fire ant hills, especially in the dog walk area. Naturally we were reluctant to use that area. We also had a fire ant hill almost next to our step. The trees did make it a bit difficult to get in and out of. We thought that the price was high, we were 3 adults and 1 baby. Probably would look for somewhere else if we were in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here several times in the past when going to or returning from trips out of State. In the past have been satisfied with the park as an overnight stop. Nothing has changed with the park, but I am afraid that they have priced themselves out of my business. The park is just not worth $35 for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our site wasn't level and was rather hard to get into due to trees. The other sites looked better. The grass (what there was of it) wasn't too well kept. Other than that, it was a fine RV park and fairly clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good overnight stop. Would have rated it higher, but for the lack of grass. Pretty dusty when we were
there. Definitely will use this park again when traveling through the area. We camped here in a camper.
