We arrived after a day in Yellowstone National Park. We did not have a reservation, but were able to get a spot. We had a deluxe spot with nice grass, table and fire ring. We were escorted to our site. The Internet works fine and there is good AT&T cell service. The cable tv has only 12 channels. Looks like recent improvements have been made. Fresh gravel on the parking pad.
We stayed in the crooked river campground and it was great! What a find. It is a ways off of the beaten path, but it is wonderful. No phone or TV other than satellite, but a very well kept park with wooded and grassy sites. All have full hookups and paved roads and pads. Nice showers and laundry room. I hope to return.
This park is one of our family's favorites. The owners are great and have put much effort into the park over the last few years. Lush green grass between the spaces and as the tree mature it will be fantastic. Nice views of the surrounding hills and forest. I would give an 10 if it had TV reception, no cable so need satellite and owners will give you a space that has good satellite reception.
The staff was friendly, but that is the only good I can say about this park. If you are lucky enough to get one of the pull throughs you most likely have a nice spot, but we were put in a back in side by side. This is by far what the majority of the spaces are. It was full of mud and weeds with an old shabby picnic table among the permanent residents.This park has great potential because of it's location, but the back in spots fall way short of many peoples standards. Also, no TV unless you have satellite.
Good park for a one night stay. Good cable system, but many of the sites were very close together. Ours was a side by side but they left one side open so it gave us some more space. The office help was excellent.
Check in was a good experience. We were lead to our pull through site. There is a nice space with a concrete pad for the table. A very good cable system has many digital HD channels and many regular ones also. It is a good overnight location, but there are a couple of items to note. Since it was a very warm evening we had dinner on the outside table, the flies were awful, then the wind came up and blew the flies away, but almost did the same to us. All the grass is dead between the spaces, they must not water. I feel if a park is going to charge these prices it should be pristine as far as the grounds.
We had a nice shady site. The kids enjoyed the pool and the area was well kept. I did not like paying $1 a night for cable, but there were many analog and digital channels available. Also, would have preferred a few less long termers in the park. The guy next to us looked like he was under house arrest as he had a transmitter around his ankle. We stayed three nights and would stay here again.
This can be a fun camping experience if you don't mind sand & wind. Four wheel drive is a must if you are pulling a trailer of any kind. Try not to arrive at high tide so you can avoid the soft sand. I recommend bringing plywood to act as skirting to keep sand from drifting under rig.
I booked this site on the Internet and we were very pleased upon arrival. We camped in a 30' TT and our kids and grandkids camped in a tent. Management was very attentive and friendly. We would love to stay here again. Because of elevation they get very cold at night and can even freeze in summer. Check the Weatherunderground web site as they have their own weather station.
Because of location, this park could be so much more. I feel the grounds are very poorly kept. The grassy spots are under watered and stressed as well as many of the trees. Need to better address the weeds in the parking pads. The cable TV is somewhat of a joke, but as of this time you can still receive local network channels via analog signal from a nearby mountain. I suggest you bring your own satellite dish. I do enjoy staying here because of the location, but wish the staff would pay more attention to the grounds.
This is one of my favorite parks. It has a very pretty setting, but not many extras. Bring bug spray if out in the evenings. Would recommend requesting back row, 16~25. These spaces back up to the woods and have less highway noise. They have recently added 6 new tent spaces.
