Small older park but nice pull throughs, convenient in-town, owner was helpful and friendly . Gravel pads but level, grass strips in between. All utilities worked fine. Stayed overnight but Would stay again . We rely on Wi-Fi extensively in our travels and are generally very disappointed in the service provided.. This park has 4 routers and antennas for the 50 sites, log-on is very simple, We got 3.5-4 Mbs download consistently. I'd rate the Wi-Fi here at a 9 out of 10. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff. Gravel but level site. Close to town so if you need anything. The permanent residents were fine. We would stay here again when in the area even though a bit noisy so close to Hwy 50. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
RV park is located in the city next to all you need. Walmart, places to eat, auto parts store, etc. The RV park has lots of trees which gave the place a nice feel. The park is 80 percent permanent residents but they were all nice and the place is not a mess. Check-in was easy and the staff was pleasant. We used the park as a place to stay while seeing the tourist sites. The park is small and there was lots of morning noise while people went to work. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is right in town and an easy walk to a grocery store or fast food type places. It's also very shaded. Beautiful large trees between most sites. Great in the heat but not too great if you want to use a satellite. Cable is $2. Friendly folks own and run the park and it's perfectly located for dinosaur and Indian petroglyph exploring. There are a number of oil field workers that stay here so be ready for the 6am diesel start-ups. We stayed here 3 nights and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not bad for a quick stay. 3/4 of the park are full time residents, but they weren't too trashy. The host keeps the transient campers together, so you probably won't see any of the permanents. Very shady and cable is great. WiFi is wishy washy and we could only connect to one of the 5 hotspots for some reason. One of the other reviews was right, the host is protective of his grass. Don't set up anything on it or you'll get a knock on your door. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very shady campground located in the middle of Vernal. It is located on a busy street, but we didn't notice any noise since the sites a a few hundred yards off the street and behind buildings. The manager was very nice, but the sites are packed together. It is a mix between long and short term residents. The price was right. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If great Wi-Fi and cable TV are important to you, this is a fabulous place. The cable even had an HBO station and every cable channel you'd normally run across. It is very shady. It is located fairly close to the main highway through town, but with the air conditioner running, it did not keep us from sleeping well. Also, there is a hair salon on the opposite side of the building which has reasonable prices. We all got hair cuts, and after two months on the road, we needed them!!! We will definitely stay here any time we are in the area. Best Wi-Fi and cable TV we have encountered! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was clean and well maintained. If you want close to the showers pick a spot towards the front. If you want quiet, then pick a place towards the back. It is on the main street in town and has quite a bit of road noise. There is lots of shade. The showers are a quarter for a minute and a half. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The sites are long enough to handle big rigs and are wide enough for slides. The parking pad is on dirt and they have sprinklers for the sparse grass. This makes mud each morning that gets tracked into the rig. There is a table at each site. Lots of shade trees so satellite service is not available. They have cable TV with many more channels available than you usually find. The Wi-Fi worked fine. There are a lot of permanent sites and only a few overnighters. The manager is not on the site during the day. He comes by in the morning and evening and that's it. The park is right in town but is quiet. It is close to lots of businesses such as restaurants. It is okay for overnight but next time we might look elsewhere because of the satellite issue and the mud. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, well intended, owners. Major problem was with 30 amp service. Line voltage constantly fell below 108v thus tripping my AC breaker. Owner came by and said he'd report it to the power company. But our AC never stayed on for more than ten minutes and the weather was in the high 90's. Also, the showers are on a timer for 1.5 minutes $.25 per increment. Their marketing material indicates a playground, but there isn't one. On the positive side, it is walking distance to good shopping and dining. Many long term residents but clean and quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good park in town, close to shopping, restaurants, etc. Roads are paved, sites are gravel with grass between. A little tight to get around in. Many large shade trees. Some road noise. Many permanents, but sites are clean. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very close to many stores. Close to a multiple large RV bay car wash. Owner very cordial. Park has many well-kept long term residents. Large Pull-through with high trees & picnic tables. Hair Salon in Front that gives great cuts for $15! Laundry Facility as well. Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lots of tall mature trees with good grass between sites. Many permanent campers, some noise at night. Very poor Wi-Fi. Not pet friendly - no dog run. Campground is located in town convenient to restaurants and shopping. Would stay again when passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a small RV campground. Was able to take pet to large open field next to campground to exercise. The owner was not friendly. Was setting up my satellite in grass next to RV and he kept telling me in different ways that he didn't want it in the yard. I moved it in front of the RV in the gravel to shut him up. That was the only interface I had with him after checking in. Don't think there is anything else in Vernal but would check before I would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is located right off the main road in Vernal, making it easy to get to anything in the area. The cable TV and Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. Lots of huge shade trees and grass in between sites. The only negative was that the park has a high percentage of "permanent" residents and at least 60% of the RV's were derelict, taking away from the park's overall allure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a terrific place to stay if you are in the Vernal area. The staff is friendly, helpful, and willing to assist with any questions. Restrooms are very clean and showers are excellent. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked this park. Stayed a week and got one day free. Cable is an extra $1.50 per day. Wi-Fi reception is good near the front of the park but we lost our connection numerous times during the week. The owner's son was on site frequently and very nice and helpful. We never talked with the owner himself. The sites are not large but we had enough room for our 35' 5th wheel. Very convenient location for all activities in the area. The front of the park is much more visually appealing than the back. If you stay request a site there. There were too many trees to use our rooftop satellite dish. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was surprisingly quiet in spite of being on the highway right in town. Level, gravel pull-through sites were easy to access. There are trees and grass at each site but no tables. Utilities, including Wi-Fi were reliable. We spoke to the host before arrival and were advised to choose a site and set up; that he would find us later in the day for paperwork. This worked smoothly and cordially. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount and an extra charge for cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to stay for a couple of days and visit Flaming Gorge or Dinosaur Monument. Had a pull through site, my 34 ft 5er fit OK, but not much room to park the truck. Had to angle it and it ended up on the grass. WiFi worked great, cable TV hook up costs $1.50 but you get a lot of channels. Trees and shade were nice. Owner is rarely on site, you set up camp and check in whenever he gets there, usually in the evening. There is a gas station next door for ice, and a food store across the street. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our stay at this park was so pleasant that we stayed a whole week. The weather was very hot and the shade provided by big mature trees was much appreciated. The campground is at walking distance to grocery, pharmacy and restaurants. As we were in 3rd row from the busy main road so it did not disturb us. We would surely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park appears to have a significant number of permanent residents which would explain the owners casual approach to park management. Sites are grass and gravel and appear to be level. Our site required no leveling at all. There are mature shade trees and they are spaced so as not to make entry and exit a problem. I was surprised that there was an additional charge for cable TV. This is a service typically provided as a function of nightly rate. Our cable service was less than satisfactory with the national feeds. The owner indicated the problem was with the provider, yet the non major channels were just fine. The WiFi was free, but tended to disconnect frequently. You should select a site close to the office for best signal. The park was next to the main route through town but noise was not a problem. The park is a good stop for the price. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay at this park. The owner is pretty laid back and there is often no one on-site. Most of the time, site selection is self serve, first come first served. We had a nicely shaded spot. Satellite reception was a little tricky due to the tall trees. Cable is available for a small charge. There is a lot of traffic on US 40/191 through Vernal, but we did not notice it at night. The campground is close to downtown with restaurants, a Smith's market and other businesses within walking distance. The Maverick station next door seemed to have the lowest diesel price in the area. This was a convenient location for visiting Dinosaur National Monument and the Utah Field House Museum. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I was in space 16 on the South End and there was no Wi-Fi signal there. Verizon 3G works great here however so it wasn't an issue. The large Aspen and Cottonwood trees offer great shade but they obstruct the roof-mounted dish. Cable TV is included with 1 HBO channel so it wasn't a real problem. It's a nice, well groomed and quiet place to stay. Also, there is a hair dresser shop on the property and it's a great place to get a decent men's haircut. Don't know about women's cuts? We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very laid back park: just come in and pick your spot. We had some issues with leveling. Cable TV worked fine, Wi-Fi signal was weak as we were at the far end from the office. Nice big trees for shade. Works great for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park turned out just fine for us with our 45’ motorhome. The entrance, while a bit hard to spot, was easy to turn into and had no real grade to deal with. The in-town location was quite convenient and the city noise level was OK. Far from manicured, the park was still neat and clean. Access to the site was good and the wide spaced, mature trees were no problem with our four slides. Shade from the trees was welcome on the hot days we were there, but they didn’t block satellite reception. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pleasant campground. As noted, most of units are permanent, but not a problem. We had Verizon, so don't know about the WiFi. Cable was good. Level sites; big shade trees. I would recommend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owner of this park is pretty casual and did his best to be sure we enjoyed our stay. The Wi-FI is spotty away from the office and the trees, while beautiful, will play havoc with your satellite but the cable is good. The sites have been angled in the past few years and it makes parking much easier. We had no problem getting in or out of the driveway so don't know what the past reviewer had as a problem. About 2/3s of the park is full time but we had no problem with any of them. We rated it down due to maintainence and Wi-Fi. Both could be easily remedied. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is right in the middle of town, steep driveway, we dragged our bumper going in and out. We were only seven spots away from the office but could only get WiFi for a few minutes in the morning before we checked out. The manager told us most people come down to the laundry room to use the WiFi. The showers are pay showers, .25 for 3 minutes, and the laundry was $1.50 for a washer and $1.50 for a dryer. The Maverick gas station next door has good coffee though. There is a grocery store right across the street. We like to camp, not just park. This is definitely just a parking lot with trees and hookups. They charged us a dollar a night more than the price on their web site, and they charge for AC or Heater use. Children are welcome but they will cost you per head. This is one of those nickel and dime places that knows they are the only show in town so can add on all sorts of charges. We won't stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There are a 8 full hookup sites, not all are pull-through, in the upper part of the park CG. There are several power only sites, and the rest are dry camping with CG water supply placed along the road, no hookups. The Camp Host is helpful and friendly. We never did see a ranger the week we were here. Restrooms are clean but there are no showers. Each site does have an aluminum table/benches, some with canopies. There are BBQ's and campfire pits. Not all the pull through sites would accommodate a big rig. The Utah Park Dept had a paving project underway in the boat ramp parking lot and it was noisy and smelly for two days. Make a reservation on line and it costs another $10. The level of the lake is very low. This was a pleasant spot to spend a few days and close enough to Dinosaur National Monument. Good access to services in Vernal. The CG map shows only 31 sites available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this campground. It's small enough not to have a lot of traffic but big enough for some nice walks. When I tried to make a reservation through the Reserve America site, it only listed the sites as being 30 ft. I swapped emails with a very nice person on staff and was assured our big rig would fit. If you go to this web site it gives a map and specifics for each site. http://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/steinaker/maps/campground Lots to see and do here in dinosaur country. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 4 nights in a pull-through site. It had a hard cover over the picnic table which was not true for all the sites. There was no view of the lake but the campground was fairly quiet and nice to walk around. There was constant traffic in the evenings with people bringing in boats to ride around the not very large lake. It got busier and noisier on the the weekend. There are no showers which is a downside for campers that are not self contained. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice for a state park, paved roads. Nice lake. No showers. Many small lizards. We seem to always get next to some guys that have to party all night with a campfire that blows into our camper. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the few extra-ordinary places to be. This State Park is easy to find, but before you know you are driven to far and after a lot of miles you can return (our RV is 32'). They have only 7 sites with full hook-up and 6 of them were reserved. We did not know that reservation was possible and were very lucky with a beautiful site almost on top of a small hill. The pull-thru place offered a beautiful outlook on three sides on the lake. If you want to swim or go on the water with a boat or so, ask for a place on the lake side on the lower part of the camping ground. We enjoyed the sunset and sunrise with a splendid half covered sky; like an natural artwork! We can recommend this place to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground for one night on our way to Colorado and Wyoming. The staff was friendly and accommodating on check-in. We were assigned a pull-through site. I'd hoped to leave the trailer hooked up to the truck to speed our departure the next morning. Unfortunately, the site was not long enough to accommodate both the 27' trailer and my Toyota Tundra. There was a large field behind the row we were in, where people parked their trucks and that's where we put ours. The campground has mature shade trees and grass. Traffic noise was not a problem. However, the sites are very close together, and I stress very. We had a motorhome in the site to the left and their awning came within 2' of our rig. Also, Wi-Fi is secured, which is not ordinarily a problem, but we were given a "coupon" with a code on it. At night I logged in using my iPad and got a connection. When I later tried to use Wi-Fi, it would not connect. In the morning, I attempted to use my netbook and got a message that the coupon had been used on another device and could not be used. As a result, I was not able to use Wi-Fi at all. In my opinion, the campground should not restrict which devices are used, but perhaps have a policy that only one device (iPad, computer, phone, etc.) per site can be used at any one time. Due to the small sites and Wi-Fi problems, I am giving only an average rating to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A lot of people don't like KOA, and this is a perfect example why. Made my reservation on line, picked a spot that was claimed suitable for my rig (43ft MH with 4 slides) for $42 a night. When I got here, was told my rig would only fit in "Super Sites" at $71 a night. Since there wasn't much else in town I took it. In looking at the other spots I can see why I wouldn't fit in, if there were neighbors, they are extremely close together. The space itself is fine, has a patio with gas grill and seating area, but in the full sun so it is hot. So in short: spaces are VERY small and expensive but there isn't much else around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have stayed here in the past and probably will again -- not by choice but by necessity, it's about the only game in town where you can get caught up on internet stuff. Sites are not particularly level, skinny and could be difficult for larger rigs to get into/out of. Managers/hosts are friendly and accommodating. Good spot to stay as a base for visiting Dinosaur Nat'l Monument or Flaming Gorge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only stayed here because the RV Park in town was such a dump. KOA has gotten so expensive for what you get. This is an ancient KOA built before slide outs. The sites are right on top of each other, some couldn't even put out their awning. Very rutted and hard to level. Why the owners of these parks can't do a little work to make it more enjoyable for campers is beyond me, it must be the $$$$$. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Standard KOA, clean park, has a swimming pool and so on. Workers were helpful and friendly. We only did an overnight stop. Looked good though and we would camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground has such great potential. The tenting and cabin area is spacious, neat, and clean. There is a large, grassy area on the north side of the park that is spacious, neat, and clean. There is a great pool and pavilion area, and a great doggie play area. The pull through sites, however, are somewhat ragged and ratty looking, definitely need some TLC, new gravel, edging, etc. As pointed out in many of the reviews, the sites are too close together; they need to eliminate about every third site and space them out more. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice and friendly office workers. However, sites are extremely tight. Larger rigs have to jockey into the sites, and several had to drive around several times to get into position thus leaving their attached vehicles out in the road or in others' sites. If we sat outside at the picnic table, could reach the neighbor's RV. Very noisy, grass cut in the park before 0800. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice park. There were lots of trees but they did not cause any problems with any of our rigs. Easy in and easy out. The street in front was quiet in the evening. Morning was very busy and noisy. The pool looked nice. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent 4 days here while exploring Flaming Gorge and Dinosaur Nat’l Monument. This is a large park with grassy sites that unfortunately are very close together. Some sites are shaded by huge cottonwood trees and one row has cable TV although we got 21 channels with only our aerial. We camped in space #36 and our son was in premium (+$) space #37, which is the only one allowed to have both RV and tent. It is across from the pool, playground and mini golf that our grandkids loved, but near the noisy highway. The owners of the park went out of their way to successfully resolve several problems we encountered while staying here. The hosts were mostly friendly and helpful. Vernal is a nice, clean, small all-American town. You can find anything you may need within a few miles of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an ok park. We stayed two nights while touring the national park and museum. The sites are extremely close together. The staff is friendly and helpful. We might try the other park in town if we should return. This one is nothing special. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are long enough but too close together. Nice park for family gatherings with a very friendly staff. Bathrooms are clean, as is the laundry room. Nice enclosed dog area. Close to shopping and restaurants. Don Pedro's north of the park is very good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Office staff very friendly and helpful. Sites are narrow and close to each other. The campground is very busy and noisy in the afternoons and mornings. Too many people leave their diesels idling needlessly. Reservations are recommended as I saw several people being shuffled to the overflow area after 6PM. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Narrow sites; small showers; senior receptionists were very nice. The grounds are a paradise for dogs and children. Lots of acreage, playground equipment for children and dogs. Dogs have their own pen to play in. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
YIKES!!! $39.00 "Keep On Adding"! We were in a bind and had no other choice. We always avoid KOAs because the price is outrageous but this was just too much especially for the location. Typical KoA, 40 minutes to check in as new hosts were being trained but, they were pleasant. I should have parked on the street! I will next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Office personnel were really great and friendly. The park had a lot of what appeared to be transit workers. The sites were very narrow and crowded. WiFi worked great. Good for an overnight sleep but too crowded for more than that; at least at the KOA price. Cable TV was $1 extra! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a pretty nice park. They have a large green lawn we were able to walk our dogs on and a pet playground. The spaces rock not cement but each has a small grassy lawn with a picnic table. We stayed in a 38' fifth wheel and had just enough room. The only bad thing is that their laundry room does not have many units. Also, they won't allow you to have anything in front of the trailer. We had to put our truck in the shop and they wouldn't allow us to set his toolbox anywhere outside. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owners were friendly and glad to see me. Pull through spaces were short and tight for my 38' rig. They had a fenced doggie play area with agility stuff. My dogs were not very agile, but enjoyed all the smells of dogs that visited before. Plastic bags and a disposal can were supplied. The area was very clean. Highway 191 was a real challenge, with 10 switchbacks in 2.5 miles north of the campground. We found a Chinese buffet called Win On, which was the best I have ever had. Every item we tried was perfectly prepared. The town is beautiful, with flowers lining all the main streets. We enjoyed the visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our site was long enough for a 40 foot MH, but hardly wide enough for our slides. We had to walk under our bedroom slide to get to our car behing the MH. Our cable connection didn't work so the manager put a spliter on our neighbors - then his didn't work. Like previously stated there were a lot of working people, but they were quiet and had little junk spread around. One reason I rated this park down is that people came from a back area and drove fast in front of us raising dust on the gravel road. The park was building a new bath house. It looked like there was a nice pool and play ground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was not too bad. As the previous reviewer stated, the sites are a bit close together and can be crowded if the park is full. The WiFi is intermittent at best as it seems they need to reset their WiFi hardware several times a day. Once their office closes at 8PM, the internet soon dies after that. Vernal is a booming town with all the recent oil drilling and homes to rent are hard to come by. There are a few "rough necks" (folks that work with oil drilling) who are camping at the site, but they are very quiet for the most part. The park seems to be very quiet in the evening with no loud parties or radio. Probably would stay again if ever in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The new owner is very pleasant to deal with; they were having problems with their computer and she had us park and register later rather than stand around and wait in the office for the problem to be fixed. Sites are crowded together as is typical in areas with a lot of tourists. A major issue with the park is that apparently some big new pipeline project was starting the following week and a great many of the sites were being occupied by construction workers and their families who were going to be there for weeks or months, so the park looked and felt a bit too much like a low-rent trailer park rather than an RV resort catering to tourists. We were only able to get a site because our motorhome is a 20' Roadtrek; travellers in big rigs were being turned away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location and the pool was very nice. Sites are a bit too close together, which takes away from the overall great place. Grass on the sides and lots of room for tenters. Our shade came from the 2 RVs on either side of us. However the staff was very nice and we'd definitely come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The grounds and buildings are well maintained and the staff was highly visible getting the pool and other things ready for the busy season. Depending on where you are, sites have either paved pads, gravel, or you are parking on grass. Could be a little tight if you and your neighbors have slide outs. Decent shade trees, which is rare in this area. Some road noise, but not too bad. Rest rooms were clean when I checked. No fire rings at the RV sites and the dumpsters were overflowing the two days that we were there. After driving by a few other parks in the area this is probably the nicest place you will find. Price listed is for a full hookup site without cable TV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff, clean park, nice playground. The pool was fantastic as we stayed there during an incredible heat wave. Wi-Fi was tricky to access. You needed to be near the office. This is definitely the best place to stay in Vernal. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
