We stopped here for one night and will definitely stop again on our return trip, probably for two nights. Friendly, clean and well run. Lots of space at each site, easy access. Don't know how they do it but the site is close to the freeway with no noise. Wi-Fi is a bit disappointing but given the location this is not surprising: appears to be a satellite link instead of fiber optic. Don't wear yourself out by trying to cross 500 plus miles of west Texas in one day. Stop and enjoy a night at Fort Stockton RV Park.
We arrived at 7:35 in the evening after the office had closed and used their convenient self registration system. We were able to choose the site we stayed in the previous year so set up was fast and easy; including the satellite dish. Close to the city amenities for resupplying the trailer with much needed food, and a pleasant visit to Olde Town. We were hit with a cold front on Wednesday, half a day earlier than expected, and stayed an extra day instead of trying to fight the snow and wind on the I-40. The staff were very friendly, the showers hot and clean. We will definitely stay here again if and when we return to Albuquerque.
We heard great things about this state park and we were not disappointed. Excellent location for day trips to Sedona, Jerome, Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma NM and well. For those traveling with dogs there is a leash free dog park just outside of Dead Horse adjacent to the baseball diamonds. The town of Cottonwood has all the amenities one would need. It's a short 15 miles from I-17 at Camp Verde: give it a try.
You'll see a lot of mixed reviews on this one. They need to get rid of the older grumpy gentleman at the check in: he looks like he'd sooner be working on his tractor. Having said that, the RV park was only 15% full and space at our site was more than adequate. The washrooms were exceptionally clean with seven shower stalls in both the men's and women's washrooms. Wi-Fi is only available in the office and laundry room but the ladies in the office were very friendly and helpful when I went to use it. The staff in Ruby's General Store/Post Office went out of their way to be helpful when we visited. This is a very convenient spot to stay when visiting Bryce, only 1 1/2 miles to the entrance.
My wife and I decided to travel from Salt Lake City to Bryce Canyon in two short days instead of one long day. We arrived in the early afternoon and received a very warm welcome and personal guidance to our camping spot. After setting up we enjoyed a pleasant afternoon relaxing in the country atmosphere. The showers and washrooms were clean, lots of hot water and water pressure in the large shower rooms. As more RVs arrived they were spaced so as not to infringe on other guests: the site was only 25% full. If you want to cut a long day short coming to or from Salt Lake City pull off the I-15 at Fillmore and stay at this KOA. It's far enough from the freeway to get away from the noise but close enough for easy access. Oh yeah, no trains.
The Heyburn community can be proud of this public RV park and campsite. The RV sites were clean and well spaced apart. It's a self registration system that costs $23 per night for one night's stay, but $22 per night if you stay longer. A public park is adjacent to the RV area. The park includes a paved trail along the Snake River; and it's dog friendly. The washrooms and showers were security-code locked and were kept in immaculate shape. It's located a short 2 miles from I-84 so you get a chance to be away from freeway noise. The town of Burley is across the bridge and has full services for shopping. Check it out; it's better than staying in some of the larger centers along the I-84.
Beautiful forested area with large campsites. Hiking trails throughout the park and a great place to kayak. We arrived without a reservation and spent two days enjoying this wonderful place. The park attendants were very helpful finding us a site we could enjoy for two days instead of just one and had we known of this jewel we would have reserved ahead and stayed longer.
Centrally located for touring Salt Lake City and the outlying areas. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the RV sites clean and the facility is green (double entrendre for the grass and the recycling program). Pleasant walk along the Jordan river adjacent to the KOA, and dog friendly. Clean up facilities were in excellent shape: both the showers and laundry room. A car wash sized to include RVs in adjacent to the site. We would definitely stay here again.
A Canadian visitor's first experience with Utah state parks. My wife and I are traveling to Florida from Vancouver Island. We were planning to visit Utah for a month before heading further east and we were looking forward to staying in Utah State parks. Our first and only experience so far was at Willard Bay State park. We were very pleased with the park and the park staff, it's a beautiful place. We booked in without a reservation on Oct 2nd. We inquired about the procedure for reserving a site: we were given the phone number, fee, and were told that reservation must be made at least 48 hours in advance. We chose a site that did not have a reservation sign posted and felt that the site should be available for at least two nights (48 hours). The next day we were leaving the park for a day's outing stopping at the kiosk to pay for another night's stay. To our surprise the site was reserved for that night, Oct 3rd. The park attendant explained that she did not receive the reservation list for Oct 3rd until earlier that morning. We were also informed that the only sites available were the more expensive 'double sites'. We would have expected a reservation sign posted at the camp site no later than the day before the reservation date, ie: Oct 2nd. If we had known the site was reserved when we arrived we could have planned accordingly. What a pleasant welcome to Utah, especially from a State agency! How can visitors enjoy camping at your State parks for at least two consecutive nights without the worry of unexpectedly being kicked out? Why are park staff not informed well in advance so they can inform park visitors? A problem obviously exists with the administration of the parks and needs to be addressed by upper management. In consideration of my wife and I wasting a day we are requesting a full refund of $25.
