We were trying to get from Grand Junction, CO to Manila, UT (Flaming Gorge) but a front came in and dropped snow in several of the passes north and south of Vernal. The staff at Vernal was really helpful in helping us evaluate the situation and suggesting a safe route to Vernal. They held a spot for us without the normal deposit. We made it to Vernal safely, the storms cleared and we were able to get to Manila the next day. So a 10 for service! The RV Park is nice, nothing fancy, certainly fine for an overnighter or to explore the Dinosaur National Monument. The roads and sites are gravel. Some overhanging branches to look out for and a couple tight turns. Our site was a bit narrow but level. The utilities worked fine. No cable bot over-the-air worked good. Some grass. Picnic table and fire pit. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Motorhome.

We were there early in the season when only a 1/2 dozen other campers were there. As a result we had lots of space, it was super quiet, and the wifi was fast. We stayed here to visit, Dinosaur NM, Flaming Gorge, and hike to the dinosaur tracks and also the petroglyphs. Plenty of room for big rigs to maneuver, and pull thru 50 amp sights plenty long too. Really nice people run this campground. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Motorhome.

We got the Deluxe Site which had a grill, a pergola, pull thru, patio, chairs, fire Ring and trees.. Big trees... Pool looked nice, but we didn't use it... dog park was enclosed, nice flowers all around, but had permanent residents that drove thru the park to a trailer park behind the KOA...friendly staff, clean sites, gravel. Would stay there again. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Motorhome.

The lack of shade was disappointing, since the weather was very warm. Only the pullthroughs for smaller rigs have shade - but those are very close together. We had a "super site" also, with patio, firepit, grill, iron table & chairs, and a bench swing, and we were able to enjoy most of these things in the evening, when it cooled off. The grill could have used some cleaning, but they did provide a wire brush and we were able to clean off a spot for our use. Though nice, the price seemed a bit too high for what you get. The bathhouse is quite nice, with private rooms for showers and toilets alike, and very clean. Tenters have a nice separate area, many of them backing up to a woods. Though this campground is on the edge of town, it was quiet at night, just a little road noise from US 191. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park. Level pull-throughs. Very convenient to town, which has lots of restaurants and stores and to Dinosaur Nat'l Park. For those with dogs, there's a vet only a couple blocks away. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice gravel pull through sites with grassed areas. Full hook up with cable TV also. Easy hook ups. Good amenities: pool, rental bikes, propane, mini-golf, horseshoes and a playground for the kids. Convenient location to visit Dinosaur National Parks, (Utah and Colorado.)

Nice little shop at the park. Visit Dinosaur NP in Utah and Colorado easily from here. Entrance can be a problem if other campers are checking in. You may have to wait in the road. Watch out for kids on the rental bikes.

Nice park and friendly staff. Escort you to site. We stayed in a "Super Site," which meant we had a patio, table, swing, propane grill, a shade awning, fire pit, and lots of room. Leveling was not a problem. Will definitely stay there again. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Motorhome.

Exceptionally clean and well kept, a crew was out quite often taking care of the grounds. We had a site with a very nice patio and it was well worth it. We would have no problem staying again. A really nice kids playground area, with pool and large air bouncy play area. It was hot in July, I'd go back in the spring or fall without the grandkids. Lots to see if into dinosaurs!

Tips for other Campers:

This is the place to stay if you are into all things dinosaur. A very nice kind of high desert area this park is not too far from the Dinosaur National Monument with the Fossil Bone Quarry and lots of trails and hikes, petroglyphs, and while there is national park camping in the monument, they have no hookups and are not accessible to long RVs. We felt this was the much better place to stay for our several day visit especially with the heat.

This was overpriced, even for a KOA. Tight gravel spaces with a minimum amount of shade. Level, but little else going for it. There were some shady spaces, but they were only 30Amp. This is in the Utah desert with triple digit daytime temps.

Wi-Fi and Cable were good. We stayed here to take our Grandson to Dinosaur National Monument but will probably not return. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice clean KOA. Staff was friendly and gave good information on attractions down the road. Stayed in site 24 which was more than adequate for our 34' fifth wheel and crew cab truck. The water pressure was low but we were able to overcome this by using our pump and holding tank.

We read a previous review that had concern about a trailer park located at the back of park. This didn't seem to effect us; site 24 wasn't on the main path of travel.

For $50 a night it would be nice to have a level site which this wasn't.

Overall we had a nice stay. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

These folks were peaches. We arrived on Monday before Memorial Day planning to leave on Thursday, but our jack broke in our campsite and we were unable to move. They were of course full for Memorial Day weekend but hey took care of us and Did NOT make us feel guilty. They gave excellent customer service! The spots were nice large spots. Can't say enough good things about them! We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We chose this park because of the proximity to places we wanted to visit during our 6-day stay. We have stayed in a 'patio site' in the Barrie, Ontario KOA and loved it so chose it here. It pales in comparison. It is a nice site, wide space with a concrete patio, patio furniture and gas BBQ. It had a nice grassy area and was nicely landscaped. However, the location within the park wasn't great. There are only a handful of these patio sites and they are all in the first row, facing the entrance road. It's a small campground but it is next to a small mobile home park and those residents use the same road - so lots of incoming/outgoing traffic noise. There are virtually no trees in the first row so we could only enjoy our patio in the morning or after sunset. The park is clean and well-maintained with friendly staff, great wifi and cable but the patio sites are over-priced. Should we come again, we will stay in a less expensive pull through site in the last row. The price reflects the KOA discount. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Motorhome.
