I waited 3 weeks to give this review to let my emotions subside so I could give a fair logical review. The bathroom is shared with the gas station (why??) and the cleanliness level as you would expect was on par with your standard Chevron station. There was only ONE sit-down toilet in the Men's room and there was literally a line waiting for it with gas station patrons every time I went. Very poorly designed. The internet did not work at all even though the owner over the phone stated it works fine during the day but can get bogged down at night. Okay fair enough, but it was never usable during the day either. He claimed he was streaming video just fine during the day and other guests had no problem and implied it was a problem on my end. My girlfriend had just got done talking to another neighbor about the unusable wifi. By the way, you will get a good wifi signal but you just can't bring up webpages. I couldn't even bring up the page to the Internet Speed test site to even tell you the download/upload speeds. I called his bluff, and I offered to let him show me this "streaming" he was doing knowing he wouldn't even be able to pull up the front page of youtube and he just turned around and walked way without saying a word. Very disrespectful! We felt very uncomfortable the rest of the time we were there. Scenery wise there is nothing here.. it is in the middle of nowhere.. very drab. I give it plus one point because at least the electricity and water worked properly.

I'd call this a hidden gem in plain site. I couldn't believe it was A) relatively cheap and B) not jam-packed. It's very close walking distance to the charming little western downtown strip of Winthrop. It was the only RV park I found in the area with good Verizon signal (phone and data). The place is a work in progress. The bathrooms are brand-new and they were installing brand-new washer/dryers as we were here. The park had been run down from years of neglect and the friendly new owners are doing a great job of reversing the damage and making this a classy park. They were running around all over the place to water the grass while staying out of the way of the guests and thoughtful enough to change the light bulbs in the showers to be more flattering. There were practically as many deer and offspring as there were RVers roaming the premises. This will be a 10/10 when some of their projects are completed.

Pleasantly surprised by this place. Well done landscaping made up for the narrow-ish sites (still wide enough for slides though). Really enjoyed the relative calm in the area. Got very good Verizon 4G signal here. It's close by to the Green Bluff growers where you can pick your own fruit and check out wineries, etc.

Great location near Big Fork: a quick bike ride to town. There are quite a few local kids hanging around the park. That usually that doesn't bother me but two teenagers rolled up in their pickup and tried to open the doors to my car: luckily it was locked. I didn't even know about it until an officer came to talk to me about it the next day as the camp hosts saw it happen and reported it. I'm sure it was a fluke: but keep your doors locked. Otherwise a lovely park, but it can get crowded. I was able to get good Verizon signal with a signal booster.

Tight spaces but was pretty close to town. Little bit of a mosquito problem, but that is to be expected in this neck of the woods. Restrooms were fine and staff was friendly enough. I'd stay here again, but mostly because I'm not aware of anything closer to town at this rate.

Good level spots. Just a few hundred yards from a trail. We were the only RV here which was surprising but nice. Got strong Verizon signal. Picnic table and fire ring at each site.

I found security a non-issue here. State Park Rangers patrols were often. Preferred having no lighting so could see the unbelievable star display above. Had full 4 bar Verizon signal here. Was able to get more than tolerable Verizon 3G internet speeds with 2.66 Mbps download and .38 Mbps upload. Would stay here again without question. Very unique surroundings. I think they purposely left sewer dump off the table so that RVers would mindfully conserve water as this is a desert.
