This is a pleasant campground located ~:30min from Jackson, WY going over the Teton Pass. It has easy in/out access with sites for larger rigs. You may not be able to park your toad in the same site, but they seem to put the vehicle in the spot next to your rig. We arrived early in the season, so this may not be the case all the time. Some sites do not have a whole lot of space between them and some do. There are trees between most of the sites, and some RVs may not be able to open their awning. Ask. There is a nice well-kept playground for the children with a basketball court and a real fort! We did not use the facilities here, and the pool was still closed for the season. The rate we posted reflects a monthly rate. The location is beautiful and peaceful. We did notice the road noise picked up as more tourists arrived, but it was not bad. I am noise sensitive and could deal with it. I think. Wi-FI is available, and it's ok. We used our Verizon data card/cell and had no issues. There's 4G in this Valley! We looked at the campgrounds near Jackson and are very pleased with our choice. This campground allowed you to get a better feel for the area, as opposed to, the commercial tourist feel. Victor Valley Market is just down the street for groceries. They are a bit pricey, but what they offer is amazing. Broulim's is in Driggs and is a great grocery store. Food in this area is the highest we've seen in our full time living, but you can't beat the quality. We found fresh organic eggs at Snowdrift Farms. We weren't "over the top" on the restaurants here and were content to cook our own amazing local food. Victor Vet is right up the street, and they took amazing care of our 14 year old pup when she had some issues. V-1 propane is just down the road; we paid $2.50/gal on refill. This is the least amount we've ever paid for propane, so grab some while you're here. We would definitely stay here again.
First, be careful approaching this campground. You'll come across a bridge, and the entrance is just past the bridge with a very small blue camping sign just prior to the turn which is all the city will allow. If you miss it, you can enter in the exit like we did. The CG has lots of shade. We only stayed one night, but I don't think you'll get satellite. They have cable. You are side/side with the pull throughs and close. Your 'front porch' opens to your neighbor's, and you share a common grass area. We only had one picnic table. We may have been in the CG's overnight space and not 'get' our own. The tables throughout the park were in need of a good paint scraping and repainting. If I traveled with little people, I'd definitely cover it with a tablecloth for use. It's been a cooler, wetter Spring, but the grass was a bit out of hand. We didn't use their WI-FI. Verizon worked great. The CG is on a road but the noise was not bad, and I'm sensitive to it. The airport is just across the road, but no bother there either - maybe we got lucky with the wind so the landing runway was not near us. The site was easy to level. I felt safe there. By the way, the lake was not within walking distance that I could see. The utility pole was in great shape. There aren't many good camping choices in SLC. They are right off the interstate. I do think this is the best 'natural' CG in the area and I am glad we stayed there. We'd definite use this CG for an extended stay or just passing through again. Happy Motoring!
This campground is literally someone's backyard, but don't let that throw you. It just means you are turning into someone's backyard, so the entry can throw you. It feels narrow, but you can get in/out without issue. The entire campground base is small stone and there are lots of trees. This also means you'll have to back into your site and thread the trees, but again it is possible. Not all sites are 50/30, and the website highlights this fact. There are a lot of trees, as I stated, and most of the sites are shaded. Their Wi-Fi works well, but depending on where you are in the park, you may not have full bars if you are using Verizon phone/air card. The sites are sufficient in width, but a little closer than we like. Again, we could live with it. I'm not used to having the sewer hook-up feeling so close in the site, but once you're parked, it's farther back than I originally thought. There is no dog walk that I could see, but we were only there for one night. It's a lovely area to visit, and the owners are super! It's an easy walk to restaurants. This is a small town with great people, but there's no Wal-Mart or major stores unless you drive about 20mins. This is also part of the charm staying there. If you get a place that backs up to the stream, you won't be disappointed. It runs fast and loud making for some relaxation and good rest.
It was hard not to rate this park a 10, but nothing in life is perfect, right? The rate is for a monthly stay. $375 + elec which is $.014 kWh + $5 fee to read the meter. It was hot while we were here: 104, so our overall monthly charge was ~$541 while running the a/c + washer/dryer. This is an extremely efficient park from stem to stern. There's no problem navigating a 39' TT into the spots where we would fit. The Wi-Fi works well in the park for the most part. Not all sites got super strong signal, plus there weren't many folks in the CG to pull on the bandwidth. The owners are so gracious. They made sure we had a site where we could hook-up a Quest modem because we are not retired and work from our TT full-time. We have honestly never seen a more clean park. They are constantly raking the pea size gravel, putting down water to keep the dust down, and grooming the trees of which there are PLENTY at Zane Grey. Some sites are on the road. We are road sensitive and don't think it would be too bad to be placed here. It's obvious there is great love and care with this CG. The restrooms were as clean as my own home. The sites are level for the most part. There is a grass area. The folks who stayed along that area needed insect spray if you had the sweet skin they love to eat. They do recycle. There is a path that takes you down to a seasonal creek. We saw deer, a grey fox, lizards, elk close by and we heard there are javelins, but did not see any. The CG neighbors were very friendly and welcoming. There are donuts/coffee each Saturday and corn hold is serious here: holding tournaments during the Winter season. This park is not advertised as a 55+ park but there's not a lot for the little ones to do here other than ride their bike or hit the trail. They do have a hot tub. This CG is about eight miles from town which provides the basics. There aren't a lot of "good" restaurants in town. The closest Wal-Mart is 23 miles away in Cottonwood, whose corporate limits are 15 miles away. This is where we'd go for most of our supplies. We liked it so much we are coming back for the 2012 Winter season.
Very much a Mom/Pop facility but that's part of the charm of this place. She makes the RV park. Very kind and gracious person. Rate reflects monthly stay: no tax, flat rate, water/50 amp included. You have to be self-contained. The sites are fairly level and very large: 2K square feet. Originally designed as a park model lot, the hook-ups can be far out of reach in some places. You have to maneuver your rig or have longer hoses to reach. Your rig sits on pea size gravel, and the rest of the "lot" is larger stone. You'll need an outdoor mat. The majority of the sites do not have a picnic table. There is a trading or borrow library. The park is remote. You will have to drive 8 miles to a decent grocery store on Valencia. This is where you'll find Wal-Mart too. The awesome thing about this park is it adjoins the Tucson Mountain Park. The saguaros are almost right out your backyard, depending on what site you get. There are a ton of trails leading out into the desert. The sites that adjoin the desert and/or golf view go quickly and are normally reserved for returning guests. This is a very easy park to maneuver a big rig. We are a 39' TT and had no difficultly moving around or parking it, as well as, having plenty of room to park the F450. Be sure to go to b'fast/lunch at Todd's at Ryan's airfield. Good food/great prices. Tiny's is a great place too: best wings we've ever had. Ask them to leave them in the fryer a little longer. Burger night is Thursdays. Great staff. If you need a ladies haircut, try the M Salon. It's a little pricey and a drive, but worth every penny: best lady only works Thursday & Saturday. We would definitely stay here again.
First, this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing parks we've stayed in during our first year of living FT in an RV. The owners have taken great care to keep the facility pleasing to the eyes. There is a B&B on property that is equally nice. There is a lovely pool/spa area with citrus trees growing on the property. They aren't treated so you have to get to the fruit before the bugs do. The coyotes were very interesting to listen to at night off in the distance and sometimes close by, but never on the property. Keep your animal on a leash though. We live in a 39' fifth wheel toy hauler and had no problems getting into our site. This is a small intimate park. The park provided Wi-Fi is very poor. You will be able to use your Verizon phone here, but the air card service is very unreliable. We still work full time and had to leave early because of the unreliability of running off a Verizon air card. The site next to us left too because he has a Sprint phone that would drop his calls. It's very unfortunate because I'd love to stay longer. You are out away from civilization, and your cell signal bounces between three towers. The beauty of this place is it is almost like camping again even though you live in an RV. Also, this is not a 55+ park which is nice. (AZ law requires the parks allow 20% of those under 55 into the park, but you have to take their word for it). The sites are large for this part of the country with lots of natural flora/fauna. We were in site 42 which was very nice until they started parking overflow vehicles in the desert behind us. It killed our view. And, the site that filled up in our right back corner was a little too close, but it's better than most parks in the area. The only negative I can say is the campers who have returned for 8+ years started things off on the wrong track for me. They stay on the back row. We have a dog and take proper care of her. But, I was given the "evil eye" when I walked her in the back row area behind the RV and over by the dog walk. Turns out you are judged before they know you are staying in this back area. They've had problems in the past with other campers allowing their pets in the common RV area for the back row folks and not cleaned up after their pet. Thankfully, I was approached, and the person apologized, but it just set a bad tone. This same group holds daily happy hour as well. I think they could have been welcoming, but I'm not sure I want to associate with folks who are so "tight" and react without knowing facts. I truly hope when I hit the 55+ age that I have more on my mind than to worry about stuff like this and talk about other people. The upside is they do keep an eye on what's going on in the park, so nothing gets amiss fast. If you are a big rig, make sure you stay in a premium site. It's a little more costly but well worth it. Overall, I hate to leave this RV park and would love to return when we don't have to work full time anymore. One last word, the folks are so helpful that make the reservations. I couldn't say anything nicer about the people who work for the RV park. Happy trails!
This is really a nice park, the sites are level, easy access to I-70, fuel is across the street, and a restaurant (which is pretty good) is within walking distance. Best of all, they understand customer service! Verizon access is good.
Only 2 sites have 50 amp service ($20), the rest of the park is 30 amp ($15). The sites on the end of the rows do not have sewer hookups. For check-in, you fill out a form and drop a check in a locked mailbox. I had reserved a 50 amp site, but the previous occupant decided to stay over an extra night, so I had to park in another spot, which was not a problem. The owner then told me I would need to move mid-week since somebody had reserved my alternate site. It didn't make much sense to me, but was no issue since I got into the Excel service center (great service!) earlier than expected. The park is well maintained, and was fairly quiet except for some barking dogs across the street. It's OK for an over nighter. Verizon service was good. The park's Wi-Fi was also good.
Rate reflects monthly pricing. This campground needs some attention. It appears to be an old KOA. There is a Wal-Mart very close. The road into the campground is filled with potholes. The check-in was easy, and they were able to work with us as our dates moved on the calendar. The folks managing the place were super nice. They do not have many FHU sites and have only 30 amp available. Most sites do not have shade. The water and electric hook-ups can be on the opposite side of your camper depending on which site you get. The roads are narrow with no enforcement of the one car/site rule. The site spacing is adequate with slides. The outbuildings were in good shape. The fire ring was not cleaned out before we arrived or while we were here. It had trash in it when we arrived. No one shows you to your site or helps you park. A lot of folks had nightly fires, but it was difficult to park your tow vehicle at your site because of the fire ring placement. There are a lot of seasonal campers in the FHU area who take over the place. They don't want to move their cars or change their lifestyle to accommodate you. For example, they were all sitting around the fire ring into the area where you need to park. No one moved even when they saw you pulling up to park. The overall feeling of this campground is it could use a little elbow grease and attention. It wouldn't take much to get the rating higher, but I'm unsure if the owners aren't interested and like it like it is or if they are trying to make a living/stay afloat because they were about half full while we were here. This is the best CG to visit if you have business in the Milwaukee or surrounding area. We would stay here again because of work, but would not look forward to it.
This is a great campground! The only reason why we rated a "9" is because of distance between sites. It is tight between sites, but this appears to be the case with SD campgrounds. The rate paid reflects Good Sam discount. First, the owners are fantastic people. The children provide services like dog walking if you were going to take in a long day of sight-seeing. The owner could tell you where to find the most interesting places to see if you wanted something off the beaten path. The owner will see you to your campsite. There are several sections, and he will take you around to the available campsites to let you choose your site. They were able to move us to a more shady site when we asked. The CG is extremely clean and well cared for with respect to dog walking and trash. We are making our 2nd trip here this Summer. Spearfish Canyon is almost within walking distance. You are very close to Devil's Tower in WY and about one hour's drive to Mt. Rushmore/Crazy Horse. You are about 100 miles from Badlands. There's a Wal-Mart, grocery store and hospital close by if you need it. They will let your packages/mail be shipped to the office too. If you are in the mood for a nice meal, go to the Bum Steer. It is fantastic!
This is a great campground, but the location is the only reason why we rated this as a 9. It is right off the interstate, and if you are sensitive to road noise, you can't block it out inside your rig. It didn't bother my spouse, though. Most of the full hook-up campgrounds in Minnehaha county are right on the interstate. This is a very well maintained campground geared toward families. There is no check-in or check-out during the weekends given the volume of campers they have to support. Water pressure is a little low, but acceptable. WI-FI works great from all over the campground! Mature trees, level sites, and good gravel sites/roads. Dogs are welcome, and people are good about caring for them as they are walked. The staff could not be better - very attentive and personable. Heated pool and hot tub available for your use. If you are traveling with children, this is a great place for them - mini golf, large jumping pillow, and supervised planned activities. We would stay here again.
First, you could not ask to meet nicer people with respect to the owners. The campground is extremely clean, and it is easy to maneuver within the campground. The front of the campground is the older section, and the spots are tight. Not much more room than having the picnic table between you and other RVs. The front section is more like a parking lot with nice trees within it. This is where we were told the "construction" people stay. I take it this is for the folks working on the Interstate, which runs behind the campground. There is a newer section to the campground that has mature trees. The neighborhood surrounding the campground on two sides is "sketchy." There are mobile homes, apartment buildings and businesses around you. I observed some people walking through that did not appear to belong in the campground. As I mentioned, the campground does back up to the Interstate, but also you enter from another main well traveled road. I am sensitive to road noise, so to others, this may not be a bother, but I do think it is higher because of exposure on two sides. But, it appears other campgrounds close to Tower are also on the interstate: KOA & Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp. If you have business in Minnehaha county, the campground selection is slim unfortunately. In spite of the owners, we won't be staying here again.
Very quiet park with 1/3 of the spots occupied by permanent residents but don't let this stop you from staying. Most people stay to themselves, but not unfriendly. Rate based on monthly stay. You must be self-contained; no bathhouse. You may need something to help level you a little, but not much of an issue. Heavily wooded. Could not get satellite signal but we don't care for TV much so not a bother. Good Verizon coverage. Free WI-FI. Park is owned by City of Abbeville. Approach one mile long roadway to site so easy to exercise without being in traffic. Come prepared to eat, drink & dance in these parts! Abbeville has some terrific restaurants - DuPuy's, Cajun Claws and Shuck's in that order. We will definitely return to SW Louisiana and this park.
As noted in previous reviews, this area is still undergoing renovation after Katrina. For some reason, Waveland seems to be lagging behind the nearby towns. The park staff is great; the ranger stopped by on occasion to make sure everything was going well. One evening, severe weather was predicted, the park manager knocked on the door to make sure that we were aware. We were and spent part of that evening in the bath house when the tornado warning was posted. The sites were level, and we had good Verizon and AT&T cell coverage. The railroad crossings near the park are built up, so I recommend taking US-90 West from town, and follow the signs to the Silver Slipper casino, since that crossing is much flatter. Daily rate is based on a monthly stay.
We stayed at this park from late Oct 2010 until mid-March 2011. The park is in terrific shape with lake waterfront sites available. Windy if you stay right on the water. The sites "deeper" in the park were sheltered and less windy. Rate provided is based on monthly stay. Wi-Fi is available at the activity center, and they are working on making it available throughout park. Pool, tennis court, church services, as well as daily planned activities, are also available. We work from our RV, so we could not take advantage of the planned activities, but they looked well thought out for the campers. The church services are provided by a retired, well read Baptist pastor. Beach is within walking distance. Trails are well kept. Cannot say enough about how nice this park is and the people. They do allow you to receive priority mail/UPS/FEDEX packages at the campground: no 1st class mail though. Do hold on to your receipts because the registration office is volunteer run with park management oversight. The volunteers struggled with registration software, and there were some difficulties with payment. We had to show our receipt to help straighten out some of their billing concerns. Everyone was new and had to learn, but there were still some bumps in ability to answer billing questions. Depending on who you asked would leave you with varying degrees of confidence in information provided. Again, just keep your receipt handy, and it will all work itself out re: billing. Extremely clean. No campfires allowed within park. Be sure to visit Wentzell's from 5-7p for their happy hour: half price on a dozen oysters, select beers and some other food! May be a winter thing but a great buy! When we are in the area, we will definitely stay here again!
This is a beautiful park with nice wooded sites. There are several large sites; we were able to park our 39 ft toy hauler with room left for the truck. The guys in the office were very helpful. It is very convenient to everything in Auburn, but still feels like you are in the country. If you are looking for a campground with a lot going on during football season, then go somewhere else. This was relatively quiet even after a big victory. (War Eagle!) We had good Verizon service, and AT&T was adequate.
This park is a gem! There are great views of the mountains, and it is far enough off the beaten path that we didn't hear any road noise. We had a pull-through site that was level. Check-in was a breeze; the owners filled us in on some of the things going on around Luray over the weekend. Had good AT&T and Verizon coverage.
This is a beautiful park, and has the potential to be a great place with a little TLC. For example, the bathrooms were cleaned daily, but the cleaning people never look up. There were spider webs and bugs in the ceiling of an otherwise clean facility. After the a holiday weekend, they didn't empty the dumpsters until Thursday. There are a few pull-through sites that have 50 amp, but the other sites are 30. They do have river front sites, but with the thick undergrowth, you can't see the river from most of the RV sites. There is also a train track next to the campground, and the train blows the horn when it comes through. After a couple of rain showers, the roads were a muddy mess. The spa across the street is nice, and there lots of outdoor activities nearby. It's also close enough to make a day trip to Asheville or Pigeon Forge. Verizon cell phone coverage was ok, but the aircard was almost unusable because it was so slow. There was no AT&T coverage available.
The campground and restrooms are very clean and our site was level. Their level of customer service was outstanding. They go the extra mile to make sure that your stay is enjoyable, whether it's delivering firewood to your site, or just checking in to make sure that everything is OK. Would definitely stay here again.
As one of the previous reviewers said, the main part of the campground is just a field. The campsites that back up to the main road have more privacy. Our campsite was fairly level. We really enjoyed the trails and the pier. We saw lots of wildlife, including a baby fox. The park is on a major bird migration path - we can't wait to go back when the birds are passing through. Camp hosts and park rangers were very friendly.
The park staff was friendly and helpful. We had a large wooded site next to the lake. The nature center is just across the lake, and is an added bonus. Can't wait to go back with the bicycles in the spring.
