I'm not sure where the last poster actually stayed but it clearly wasn't here. This place is a pit. They are charging $25 Passport America which implies $50 for a regular site. The roads are definitely not paved, they are dirt, the sites are dirt with tiny patches of dying grass in the small spaces between each one. The sites are full of trash and cigarette butts. They are crammed one on top of another and back to back. This is by far the worst campground we have stayed in during 4 years of full time RVing. I would never stay here again and would leave immediately if it weren't a week-end and I can't find anywhere else to go. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

The attraction here is Frontier Fort itself (home of the world's largest bison statue, petting and feed-the-bison zoo, etc.), not the campground. Most sites are occupied by (very friendly) long-term oil-patch workers, and for the most part well kept and clean. Casual restaurant on site (did not try). OK for big rigs with careful maneuvering (very large adjacent parking lot makes it easy to turn around, and doubles as overflow campground--without sewers). Sites are quite close to each other, and everywhere is dirt. We would stay again but only for an overnighter. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Twenty two per night was the Passport America rate for a full hookups site. Sites are close to each; but slides can be deployed but not awnings as there are also trees between the sites. Campground sites are level sand and gravel but the road there is paved, not dirt/mud as described in previous reviews. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Jamestown is the home of the world’s largest buffalo. They have a live buffalo herd near the campground as well as a buffalo museum and old west town. There is a restaurant on site that, although lacking atmosphere, has surprisingly good food. Jamestown is a nice small town that has a selection of national stores/restaurants as well as local stores/restaurants. We received three bars of 4G on our AT&T phone. There is free Wi-Fi in the campground which worked well for us. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground itself was fine for an overnight stop. Long pull- through spots. There is a mile or so of dirt road to get to the park that makes it less desirable. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

Access roads smooth enough gravel. We have a 40 ft MH with slides on both sides. We were charged $20 (Passport) for a pull through site. Sites are too narrow with trees encroaching on both sides so we ended up using two back to back sites. Hookups are common to two sites. The park was set up for trailers. The pull through sites besides being too narrow, are not level. Only OTA signal for TV is FOX. Verizon signal good for phone and internet. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is average at best. Not bad for an overnight stopover, especially with the Passport America rate of $18. If you check-in after hours, you have to go upstairs to the bar and find someone that has a few minutes to process you in. The bar workers were very friendly but the process is a little awkward. The sites are gravel and fairly level. The park has many trees but it was still possible to get a good satellite signal for TV. The biggest negative to this park was the bathroom/shower facilities. They could definitely use a good cleaning. Better yet, they need to be updated. I would stay here again for an overnight stop but nothing more.

As the other reviewer states, this is an OK park. I was just grateful to have a place to stay with the Labor Day weekend beginning. My overall assessment would be to call it "rustic". Had a nice shady spot and did not use the primitive showers. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an OK park. Its quiet and there are trees which offer shade in the hot weather. Some of the sites are not real level, but you can work with them. I had to trim the tree at our site before opening my slide. However the sites are long with plenty of room between you and the next site and they all have picnic tables. We stayed here for 3 nights, and would stay here again. The nightly rate was Passport America. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

Not a destination park, but certainly more than adequate for an overnight or two. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had a 50 amp pull through with FHU at the PA rate of $20. There is a bar and restaurant upstairs from the office/store. They are open 4-10 daily and serve a varied menu at very reasonable prices. We'd stay here again.

General Description: Pleasant setting; lots of trees. We had a pull-through Tip: Check in is at restaurant adjacent to park. If you come in after office closes go upstairs to restaurant. Pros: • Reservations available; in our case, without one we would not have had a site. • Water pressure, and power were fine. • Showers rustic, adequately sized; generally OK. • Very easy in/out. • Park of Passport America Cons: • Very tight side-to-side sites. Final word: we would stay there again. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park also has a bar/restaurant, gift shop and museum on-site. The RV park seems to be a low priority for them. It is not very well-maintained. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is nothing fancy about this place. This is a functional RV park. The sites are kind of level but within the parameters of the leveling system on our MH. The bathrooms and showers a functional and clean with good hot water and 1 washer and two dryers said they have 50 amp service and I looked around and didn't see any...Gravel sites with free Wi-Fi, pretty slow. However Verizon MiFi worked fine. There's a restaurant and bar above the office that is open from 4-10pm and is a big hit with the locals. Lots of steaks to choose from at reasonable prices. I had a plate of ribs that was OK. We spent 2 nights here and checked out Jamestown and then went out to the missile site and took the tour. I'm not sure I'd recommend this place for a destination but it works for 1 or two nights. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

Good little park for an overnight travel stop. Convenient to the interstate and didn't have a problem with road noise. The check-in staff was extremely accommodating to give us a site where we could use our roof mounted satellite. The campground roads were smooth and our site was level, but not very wide. Site was a pull-through and easy to maneuver for a big rig. The Wi-Fi was excellent. Didn't have any luck getting local channels with the antenna. Verizon signal was excellent. The rate stated is for Passport America. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

Located in walking distance to Frontier Village. This is an OK place for short stay. The sites were mainly pull-thrus with two sites sharing an electric box. The spaces were tight with barely enough room to extend slide-outs. There is a gift shop and reasonably priced restaurant at the entrance. The small bath house includes 2 washers/dryers and clean restrooms. WiFi was free but poor reception. There was no cable and we could only pick up two stations with antenna. Cost reflects passport America discount. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.

Price is Passport America. The place is kind of dumpy, but it's a good overnight and within walking distance of Frontier Village which was a lot of fun. It's also quiet. There's room to walk the dog. Good Verizon cell & air card connection. Saturday night prime rib at the restaurant was great and well priced. Okay for a couple nites but glad I paid Passport America price. We camped at Frontier Fort Campground in a Motorhome.
