So, here’s the skinny. We stayed here for four days in Aug. We had made reservations for a full hookup site, but upon arrival was told there were none available due to septic tank issues. We were informed that we could however use their shower and toilet facility. We had dumped that day so not have a sewer hookup was not an issue. We were told to take any available site and settled on site 13. One of only two in a small back area. It was peaceful, quiet and very close to the Hoh Rain Forest which was why we were there. Most of the sites were right behind the store and closer to the road, which is dead when the park is closed. Later during our stay the owner told us they had just made a considerable investment in the shower and toilet facility, however that had over stressed the septic system and that they would no longer be offering full hookups. We spoke for quite a while and it is clear they are trying to make a go of a difficult situation. I told them they should update their website to reflect the lack of full hookups as well as correct the price, which was $25.00/night water and electric. Bottom line. We liked the place for its location and secluded location. They also had a large field behind the shower were the dogs could play Frisbee. We will be back, I just will know what to expect. As a side note. My Verizon smart phone worked great. The AT&T iPad was pretty useless.
This park was a very nice surprise. We were in the trailside loop, which was very uncrowded during the week. There is lots of open space that provides a park-like atmosphere. It is within walking distance to the Carmela Winery and restaurant (soon to change its name to Crossings). The wine and food were great. We paid a little extra for a companion site which gave us extra room but even the regular sites were large. The volunteers buzzed around like bees and all of the facilities were well maintained and clean. We will definitely be back. Just as a note. My Verizon Smart Phone worked fine. My iPad, which uses AT&T, was useless. Idaho state parks now offers a $29 Wi-Fi package which is good for a year at any state park. The park ranger told me that most of the Idaho parks have the service.
Not a bad place for a one night stay. Very convenient to I-80. Almost too close given the noise, but it stopped at night. The facilities are nice and the young lady at the counter was very friendly. And it was refreshing to see sewer drains that were actually down hill. If I had one complaint it would be the upkeep of the fulltime residence sites. There were several. One near us had a collection of rusted wheel rims that were too big for anything he might drive in an RV park. Must be a memento from an old tractor he once owned.
All around this park was nice. The staff was great, and the very friendly grounds crew does a wonderful job. It had large level spots and they were very accommodating to give us a nice shady back-in. We were here for a week and a couple of days it hit 100 degrees F. The hiking trail with the exercise stations was quiet original for an RV park. Nice pool and the on-site restaurant food was great. If I have any negatives it would be the dust. All of the sites and road are soft dirt so even at the speed limit of 5MPH dust is everywhere. Some gravel or road-base would be invaluable. Also, they should take the "fact" that they offer cable off of the advertisement. It doesn't work. I complained and was told the were "working on it." No fault of the parks: we have Verizon and had no service, even in town.
First off, this RV Park came under new management in the summer of 2011 so any write-ups prior to then should be ignored. We stayed here twice in Jan 2-12 on our way to and from the Mesa Area. This is a well-run park which is kept clean. The sites are grass and large. The management was very helpful which made our stay enjoyable. If I had one negative, which is minor, it would be the fact that they charged for Wi-Fi, but I was informed they are upgrading their system which will provide more TV channels and better, and I hope free, Wi-Fi.
This is a great park with the best view of the Tower. The employees worked with us to ensure we had a nice shady back-in along the north edge. If you are in a tent, the tent sites are well shaded and open. The restaurant has great food and is reasonably priced.
This is one of our favorite RV Parks. It is a little pricier than most if you want a premium site, but well worth the money in my estimate. The staff is friendly and the park is kept clean. The Wi-Fi screams.
A nice park if you don’t mind LARGE. It is very close to Mt Rushmore and has a lot of activities. We enjoyed the pancake breakfast and went for a 3 hour horse ride. We had a back-in (Site 649) which gave us a little privacy. The pull throughs near the front are on top of each other. The Wi-Fi was so unrealizable they should even advertise it as available. Cell phone is also spotty. But if Mt Rushmore is your destination, this is the best place to stay.
This is a wonderful RV park. The employees are one big happy family and treat the visitors the same way. There is lots of shade and they love well behaved dogs. We were there for four nights and never got a chance to see everything. We’ll be back for a week next time.
