Nice location. Nice views. Pricey for a military campground. Pictures imply coaches can pull nose in to bay views. Better have power, water and sewer extensions. Bay views were designed for fifth wheels and trailers with that picture window in back. Gravel, concrete, and sand to seawall. Not made for swimming. Most rules restrictive park we've used. Yet, it seemed they were selective on which rules (allowed tents and non-commercially built trailers to use camp sites). I don't have a problem with that, but it was against the rules. Now the bad. The staff was "abrupt". When I commented to manager about it, the response was, "...well. you have to understand that she..." Next, do not show up before 1300 and expect to go to your site if it is open. Check in is at 1400, which they'll be very happy to tell you. You'll have to argue successfully to wash the bugs off the front of your coach but no hose rinse. Don't waste your money on fire pits. They are 30-40 ft away from a place that might be usable near your coach and are located on a 25 degree slope down to the sea wall. Dog park is nice, but is located 1/2 mi away. You cannot access the beach across the road. It is closed for military maneuvers all the time. Gates from housing area left open and bikes were stolen while we were there. There were non-military people using the park. We will not return.

Elk in the camp ground so definitely in a "park" park. Xanterra operates the campground. Staff was friendly, but make sure they understand how long you are for their pull throughs. MIFI hotspot with Verizon should work. Can have up to a 1/4 mile walk to shuttle stop, but use the shuttle to get to most of the South Rim sites. We used our toad to go to the eastern part of the South Rim. Town just outside the park isn't much. Restaurants in the park are pricey and mediocre (Xanterra operated). Did not allow fire pits, even though the NPS run Mather campground did ??? That's their rules. We would return.

This park is much too pricey, particularly for summer rates in May. First, it is a mile to the beach. Water view means a tidal creek and there is a lot of overgrowth between you and the water. Definitely not a swimming area. The beach is nice, but to get there you must take a path not well suited for those that may be uncomfortable with some rocks and stone. Definitely not handicap accessible. Grass/grave sites. Pull through are fine for big rig, but back ins for "water" view are tight and no space for parking toad. Staff was friendly. Lots of grassy areas to walk the pets. Pets loved the beach off-leash. Biggest issue is park doesn't merit the price.

Other than a little pricey, this is an excellent park. Green and spacious pull throughs. Ask for the back row, though if you have a long toad, to assure plenty of room. Friendly staff. WIFI generally OK. Shuttles to casino, but I didn't talk to any who enjoyed the slots. Nice dog park; ask for that end of the park when reserving if you want to use it. Communal fire pit; they must light it for you, they'll be happy to do it. Nice indoor pool. We will definitely be back; more than just a casino stop.

We enjoyed our stay here. Downside - grass and gravel sites, generally level, but being near the ocean and damp conditions, tend to track a little stuff in the coach. A little ways from grocery shopping. Good more than overcomes this. Really close to a sheltered beach, yet tucked in enough to protect against the strong winds you sometimes get on the coast. Friendly staff (but somewhat in disarray as new ownership and some are new) will get better. WIFI was generally good. Nice long pull through/back ins OK. Some long term, but not tacky. Cable was OK. Dogs loved the beach. We will definitely be back.

Level, gravel sites, mostly pull-throughs. We saw a number of RVs that were here last year, so there are some long term workers living here, but all were friendly (unless you're observed speeding in the campground - a good thing). Drive you to your site and help you park. Certainly a good stop overnight and for visiting friends/family in Ft Worth. While 10 miles west of the loop, best campground I've seen on south and west side of Ft. Worth. Campground management and hosts try very hard to make visit pleasurable. Dog run available. We have and will continue to use this park for short stays in the area.

This is a really nice park that centers you to activities and sites on both sides of Zion NP, and it avoids the touristy parks just outside on the main Zion entrance. Pull through concrete pads (very narrow) with a small grass yard. Each pull-through site has a table and a fire pit with grill top (buy your own wood). Small contingent of seasonal folks stay here. A little far North, but they are friendly and the monthly price offers serious discounts to daily and weekly prices. We might consider this for a month or longer during fall or spring. Nice pool and hot tub. Wi-Fi is very good, at least in winter months. Advertises river sites, but there is a berm between you and river, obscuring view for the most part.

Rate is based upon blending Winter and high season rate ($23 and $40). Sites are gravel and dirt; generally level but I saw several fivers using a lot of blocks. Wi-Fi was generally mediocre at best. Note that when the wind comes up, you'll have red dust everywhere; don't leave for a day's sightseeing and leave windows open. Great tours of Mystery Valley (not open to the public) for Anasazi ruins, and for Mystery Valley (a little pricey but worth it).

Rated for the views and the ambiance of a great boondocking location. Very quiet, remote. Parking 20 yards from the rim of the canyon afforded a great "from porch" view of sunsets. Bathroom cleanliness was OK; a typical park outhouse kind of toilet. Did have a Navajo teenager trying to sell handmade jewelry in the park several hours a day. Try to pick a visit period when not too windy. That could un-nerve some. A drive in your toad on the Moki-Dugway drive up to the mesa top to the North is well worth the trip but a little scary. Not for motorized campers or coaches.

Just wrapped up four months at park. The good - paved with level sites, lots of activities including a new woodworking shop ($), very nice pool, Friday and Saturday large fire pit, and plenty of room to stretch you legs within the confines of the park (easy to walk a route greater than 1.5 miles and not repeat a road). Facilities top notch. A brand new section and a lot of pull-throughs. Need to be careful in site selection if you want satellite (consult Google maps and park site map). WiFi is now very good in most part of the park and they block video streaming, so you get good download speeds at your site. There are a lot of seasonal folks and for the most part, most are very friendly. The folks that volunteer and work camp can be a little exclusive if you're hear for a short stay. Downsides - a lot of rules that are not always uniformly enforced (dog fences, washing coach are the things that come to mind). Had to ask way to many times to turn the heat on in the pool (it is advertised) to get it turned on. If you sign a contract for extended stay, don't expect relief or camping credit towards a future visit if something comes up.
