Park owner is very nice and cares about your stay. The pull-throughs come off the highway toward the park. There is some highway noise, but we have heard worse. There is a McDonalds within walking distance. We would stay here again for a night stopover. - dwade

Great little stop right in downtown Thermopolis. Yes, it's right next to the highway but traffic dies by 8pm and it's easy sleeping. This is an older park but the restrooms were immaculate. Not a resort, but a great place for a short stay. I will definitely stay here again. - ldukeb

Small, clean, safe and well maintained. Not fancy & not the best place for kids functions. Ideal location to see this area & owners also own one of the best restaurants if not the best in town. Staff leaves you alone but helps in anyway if asked. We stayed 4 days to see this area and have no complaints. - Noghost

This is a small rv park, but we had no trouble with our 30 ft fifth wheel. The owner and staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The owner even cut a piece of wood for us to help fix our camper. The park is moments from the three hot springs in town (one is free!), a fantastic dinosaur museum, and a fun white water rafting outfit. Wi-Fi, TV, and cell worked fine. I would highly recommend this park. - Luv2RV4fun

This is a very old and well established RV Park. The campsites are very close together, have very large trees next to them, are gravel, and are not very friendly to the large RVs to navigate in the park. Staff is very friendly and helpful. - chrisnr1

we stayed here a month. We have visited here off and on over the last 19 years and were so disappointed to see its present condition. Made reservations, but were told they didn't have them--this story was told to many of the visitors I talked to over the month. Usually the CG is nearly full all the time with folks staying a month or the summer to enjoy the water.
About cried when we saw the condition of our site. Dried out foxtails and tall weeds. Anyone bringing a pet here should google "foxtailes can kill your dog" to see what to do to protect your pet. Not much maintainace going on here. They owners had fired the grounds keeper. Lawn is only water at the entrance and in front of the owners' house which they spend all their time remodeling. The pool was only cleaned twice in the month we were there, They have no printed CG rules and people let dogs and kids wander everywhere. The CG was never full. even over 7/4. Don't think we'll ever come back. - bilmo

Old and tired. At check in, our host endlessly apologized for the state of the grounds. Why draw attention to something that is obvious? Sites are close. Grounds are about as attractive as an ATV recreation track. Glad we were not here in the rain.
OK, that stated, if you want to visit the marvelous funk of Thermopolis, this is your place. We did the state park, home of the world's largest hot spring, and it was good, but this RV park has its own hot spring and pools. The pools are mineral laden and seem unclean but 1.3 million gallons of spring water flow through them each day. The water is hot and good. I often get a sketchy back from the agonies of setting up camp. 20 minutes in their pools and I was ready for Chubby Checker and the Twist.
Net net...stay here and enjoy, for one or two nights. - Elmo and Gracie

Owner was friendly, led us to our site and helped us park. This park is not big rig friendly. Seems to be a post, pole or tree on all the corners of every site. Sites are gravel and narrow but level. Site was not long enough for my 38' rig plus tow vehicle. No full-timers that I could see but tent campers are allowed. Sewer is at back of site, water pressure is strong, be careful! Interior roads are dirt and narrow.
Big plus is the onsite hot spring with 3 large pools to swim in.
There is a fairly busy train track, 50 yards from the back of the park, but as the train runs thru town, I think the other parks will have the same issue.
Owner advertises 12PM checkout but asked me (and 3 others campers that I asked) to be out by 9AM. - daviputnam

There are very few signs indicating the location of the state park. It is 11 miles from the road. If you come in from Hwy 26, There is one sign indicating to turn in for the park, and it is 11 miles in. However, that road is not marked, the park is not visible until one is close to it, and the road forks to the right. Which way do you go? You can't tell, as there are no more signs of any kind. Just a desert road. Help? So... We went back, and came in the way of Shoshoni, on Hwy 20. We went many miles until there was one small sign indicating to turn left for the park. When we arrived, the park host was new to the job, and virtually no help at all. There is no water, no showers, and the tent sites appear to have minimal area for a tent. This is for survival only. Not fun. I felt ripped off at the $17 fee. The good news is that the stars at night were awesome, and there was an incredible meteor. However, I didn't stay out long because of the mosquitoes. They didn't seem to be biting, but there were sure there. There was no heavy wind during the night, as we later suffered at Buffalo Bill State Park. We lost our tents at the latter location. We were around RV folks who talked into the night, keeping me awake. No supervision by a host. I felt miserable. This is for survival only. - Ken W

This place is beautiful! The lake was clear, the restrooms freshly cleaned everyday, the sites are decent sized and plenty of them available, our spot had plenty of shade. Both the Ranger and the Sheriff that came by were very nice and helpful with our questions about the area. We felt very safe knowing that they were close by, because accidents happen, especially when you are camping! The lady running the marina store was also very nice and helpful. We plan to make this our new yearly trip destination!! I highly recommend this place for family vacations. - theandersonz

Stayed at the Tamarask campground, which is a little rough. Rocky interior roads but nice site right on the reservoir. Pretty much had the loop to myself. When I stay at Boysen SP next time it will be on the Wind River, north of the reservoir. Looks more scenic with nicer-looking sites. - mockturtle

Perfect side. Immaculate. Little out of the way, you definitely need a car, nothing within several miles. Wide sites, all back ins, with excellent hook ups. - JeffK
