Nice shady park - lots are close together though. Lots of noise from the road, but it did die down at night. Gentlemen in office is very nice and helpful. Had FHU pull through site for our 34 ft 5er and dually -- didn't have to disconnect for the night. Very helpful! We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

A great overnight stay on our way to Moab from the Tetons.

Manager was very friendly and helpful, providing information and maps of places for us to visit. He also let us pick out our site. We chose #1 because it had lots of shade.....and that was our error. Yes, we could get satellite tv, however, it's the FIRST site for everyone to pass by and the spaces were so close to road we kept losing sat every time someone drove or walked by. The site was graveled, but the edges were mud. The street noise was tolerable during the day but the tire service business next door was more than irritating. To enter the park is a little confusing...better signs would have been helpful. I doubt we'd stay here again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Very easy to get onto the Main road to head out to any and all tourist sites and good restaurants (Golden Corral is across the road.....a 4 lane highway). Also shopping for groceries, etc is close by.

We stayed in Vernal at an in town friendly park that was way more reasonable than the KOA and since we are riding and visiting places every day, we don't use anything but the full hookups and the site space. Site was long enough for both 36 foot toy hauler and truck. Did have to let tailgate down in the road, but it was not a problem for anyone in the park, and the angle was great for unloading and reloading he motorcycle. Each site has picnic table and shade which was very nice. Bath house and laundry but no pool, playground etc. The town has grown up around the park. The two outside rows are back ins and looked like used by seasonal or long term. The inside two rows are pull thrus and mostly used by travelers. Vernal was a good base for Flaming Gorge and both parts of Dinosaur National Monument (Dino bones in UT, canyons in CO). We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly owners that go out of their way to provide information on area sites. The park is older with many long term residents but their sites are kept clean and the owner walks around the park picking up any twigs blown down or debris. The sites are close with neighbor's sewer hook up right outside your door but our site accommodated out 34 foot 5th wheel and truck with no problem. It is very quiet even though located in the center of town and there are many large trees which give nice shade. We were told just to pick the site we wanted in the center row of pull-thru sites which are used for "daily" guests...only 2 open and because of the trees we were not able to get Dish reception. If in the area we would return. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fossil Valley is a small RV park located in the town of Vernal, UT which offers basic amenities. Gravel pads are fairly level and feature grass strips with picnic tables and mature trees. Internet service is provided, but was only able to reach sites near the office during our stay. Cable TV was offered for an extra $1 per day, but is in the process of being upgraded, so available channels and reception was changeable from day to day. We were told that Internet service to the back of the park has been affected by the cable upgrade, and it is expected to improve once the upgrade is completed. Office hours seem to be very casual, but instructions are posted for guests arriving when a manager is not available. This park does not recycle. We would happily stay here again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Of course the biggest attraction in this part of Utah is Dinosaur National Monument. Additionally, a lot of tourist information, including brochures for about 10 nice day trips in the Vernal area, is available in the park office. There is a large Smiths grocery store across the street from the RV park.

We stayed at this park based on previous reviews. The park is in the southwest end of Vernal and it looks like the town grew out around it. The management is very helpful in pointing you towards anywhere you need or want to go. The sites are very close together. The sites are gravel and fairly level. There is a lot of road noise from the streets surrounding the park. Bathrooms and laundry are clean. Showers cost $0.25 per 1 ½ minutes. Laundry was $1.75 per load to wash and dry. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well. The daily rate included a $1.00 upgrade charge for the cable TV. We would stay here again when visiting the Vernal area. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Local attractions include Dinosaur National Monument, Red Fleet State Park, Utah State Field House Museum. There is a Smith's grocery store across the street from the entrance to the park.

Daily rate doesn't reflect that we paid for 6 days and the 7th was free. A clean older park that could use some sprucing up with new paint etc. Spaces are gravel, level and under large mature cottonwood and maple trees that provide great shade. Office is manned on and off with a self check-in procedure that is a little confusing. Free Wi-Fi reception is good. It appears that parts of the city have grown around the park since it was first built and it is now surrounded by a school, small mall and auto parts and tire stores. Served our purpose and we would stay here again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Park located close to several restaurants, grocers and shopping. Dinosaur National Monument within 20 miles. The "Sheep Creek Geological Loop" drive, about 30 miles away, has awesome and massive rock formations. The "Red Cloud Scenic Backway" , a 30-40 mile drive winds over a rough in places dirt road and climbs to about 9000 feet and then back down. A slow drive by car but doable in dry weather. Probably best for Jeep like vehicles or trucks.

This is an ok park for overnight. The sites have good grass but are pretty small. The grass area is about eight feet wide between campers. The WIFI was very bad. Even the owner's son couldn't get it to work. About what you would expect for this area and this price. I wouldn't want to have to stay there more than one night.

Very convenient location with several new businesses close by.

Staff member could not have been more helpful with tips on what to see and the best time of the day to do so. When told of which satellite provider the visitor has, he will pick the appropriate site to facilitate a good signal. Good value for a park that is so close to town and it's surrounding attractions.

As mentioned, the city grew out to surround the park. There are lots of large shade trees which makes if a bit difficult to aim your satellite dish. The owner will ask you what provider you have and recommend which sites will work for your satellite. Owner is also very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and is a great source of information on what to see/do in the area. Very friendly. All sites have grass a picnic table are roomy and relatively level. We extended our stay there because the atmosphere is so nice. You will get some road noise, but it's quiet at night. Verizon 4G LTE works great. We will stay here again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to go see the Fantasy Canyon which is about 27 miles south of Vernal. Amazing rock erosion formations. Smiths across the street, Walmart, Lowes & Petco down the road.

My husband stayed here years ago and remembered it as being on the edge of town, so we decided to stop in again. It is now sandwiched between a High School and businesses on a commercial strip.

It is a bit rundown and the spots are narrow, but fairly level. Lots of shade. It was a lot quieter than I anticipated. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Local theater is $5 for those over 60.

This is the campground that time forgot. It is run down. Grass needed mowing. It had a neglected feel to it. The owner was tough to track down. There were extra charges for cable, 50 amp service, and bathroom use. Sites were a little too close together - you walked out your door into your neighbor's sewer hook up. The trees provided good shade. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Requested a site near the rest rooms; assigned site right outside the door. An older park with many permanent residents, however, generally tidy. Have stayed here before and would again in the future. Camped in a motorhome. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bettys Café, nearby, is a great place for breakfast or lunch.

On busy highway, shopping and restaurants nearby, and lots of huge shade trees. Handy to Dinosaur NP and other attractions. Helpful management. I would stay here again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
