This place sounds much nicer than it really is. We were assigned a site right on the river, but we were wedged rather tightly between a permanent house trailer and our RV neighbor. There was very little room for chairs or the picnic table behind our 36' motorhome so as to see the river view. The roads in the park were very dusty. We were looking for Wi-Fi and naturally the signal for the riverfront sites was down when we were there. Our Verizon phone showed NO service. The town of Saratoga entertained us for one day, but we left a day early. We would not come here again and would not recommend it. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.

I looked at the website to pick my reservation site. When I arrived, it had been taken, which was just as well because it was in between a couple of mobile homes. There are quite a few permanent residents and many of them are up at 6:00 AM firing up their diesels and heading off to work. There were a couple of people doing engine work on their trucks. From the site, you would think that the "waterfront" sites would be the best but they are pretty close together. The Wi-Fi worked pretty well, not strong enough to stream a movie but good for surfing. The cable TV was very good. Good and easy hookups, I may stay out at Saratoga Lake if I return instead. The highlight was the Sulfur Hot Springs that were right in town, and free, certainly go there if you are in the area. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful, tree shaded campground along the North Platte River, with a friendly, helpful owner. Just walk over the bridge and you are in town. Our site backed up to open space, with deer walking by on most days. The pad was level and long and all utilities worked well. The Wi-Fi was fast. There is a laundry in town. We were here on 4th of July weekend, the town has a fun parade and fireworks. Lots to do here, drive the Snowy Range byway-absolutely beautiful, good fishing, wildlife viewing, hot springs, and more. Saratoga has more good restaurants than a town of it's size should. Bella's Bistro, Silver Saddle, The Wolf, and Hugus, for breakfast. Bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp appetizers at Bellas are reason enough to return to Saratoga, and we will stay at Deer Haven. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good base to check out the Snowy Mountain Range and the general area. Some of our neighbors were there for the fishing and it is supposed to be excellent. Sites are gravel and level, and are all back-in, but with reasonable room between sites. Big grassy area in center of park, and some between sites. We saw a deer and her doe in the river behind the rv. Great little Italian restaurant in town, Bella's Bistro. We camped for four nights and ate there twice. No restrooms or showers, so you must be self contained. Nice owners on site. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.
A nice quiet campground, with shade trees and sites along the river. We originally planned to stay one night but ended up staying 2. Owner is very nice and campground is clean. There are no shower, bathrooms or laundry facilities on property but there are showers at the free Mineral Hot Springs not far and there is a laundry a few blocks away. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for one night on our way to Alaska. The owner was very friendly and gave us a nice shady site along the river. The river is nice but the view on the other side of it is less than I expected. We did see a duck though. There are lots of permanent sites and mobile homes. It is a quaint and quiet campground for a stop-over. We would potentially stop again. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is only for self-contained units. There are no restrooms, showers, laundry or camp store. That said, this is a well-managed park, with level sites, 30 and 50 amp service and full hook-ups - everything works. The camp sites are easy to get into and are well spaced. There is a huge open space in the middle of the park, so they are not trying to make use of every available square foot for RV sites. There is cable TV with a wide choice of stations, including PBS (which is important to us). The park is very quiet. I think earlier posting about workman going to work early in the morning, may no longer be relevant, due to lay-offs and fewer workers staying at the park. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.
I find the park evenly divided, with several monthlies on the street side and all of the river-front sites available for visitors. I sleep late, and rarely heard anything from the locals. Generally less noise than bigger RV Parks that have lots of RVs coming and going at all hours. Overall, the park is very quiet and clean. Management and staff are super helpful and friendly. Excellent cable (something like 50 or 60 real good channels including sports and some movie channels) plus excellent Wi-Fi with 4 antennas to choose from. Speed of Wi-Fi is faster than what I've come to expect, and there is no password or login, and no limits except "please don't download movies." Walk across the bridge into town for restaurants, Family Dollar, two rafting/fishing shops, hot springs, and much more. We came for 3 days, and will probably be here for 3 weeks. Seriously. While the rest of the upper plains is 100F, we came here because it's in the 80s here. Here in Saratoga, we found ourselves within day-trip range of many attractions: Laramie, Snowy Range/Medicine Bow Mountain, Aspen Alley, Encampment, and more. We also got our RV repaired a couple of blocks from here, for tons less than we would have paid at a dealer. I can't stop gushing about this park and town. The people in town are really cordial, and prices are quite reasonable. Saratoga's dog park is one of the largest and best designed I've encountered anywhere. The dogs can run and run, but during the week it's not crowded at all. Some ratings agencies give this park short shrift due to no showers or restrooms, but we never use them anyway. For what we want, this park covers all the bases for a very reasonable rate. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a month with a monthly rate of $450 plus utilities. This is primarily a workers campground. Pluses: Across the river from Saratoga, A wonderful quaint town with restaurants and the hot springs. Minuses - hardly any facilitates - no showers, bathroom, playground or even a nice spot to sit on the river. This campground does not take advantage of its river side location. The campground is quiet at night but many workers get up and start at 4:00 or 5:00 AM. For what you get (no facilities at all) the prices seem very high, especially the monthly rate. But despite the high prices and lack of facilities the campground does a lot of business. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.
Lots of long term workers saying at this campground as mentioned in prior post. Not a problem as most leave early and return later in the evening. Did not even hear them or any road traffic. Manager was all the time doing something to maintain the campgrounds. Would have rated higher if it offered more for the price. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Our site was a back in on the North Platte River and very nice. The park is a nice quite park to spend some relaxing time at. Deer Haven is on our always list. We camped at Deer Haven RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
