I was very pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Having stayed at a few fairgrounds in the past, I know that not all of them are nicely kept, but most of them are well priced. The photo on the Fairgrounds website does not do the RV sites justice. I stayed in mid June after a wet spring and was amazed at how green and well kept the entire property is. The grass is nearly pristine and well groomed. No fly or mosquito problems, though there were a lot of gnats. There are new restrooms with showers open on the property. I was the only person at the RV sites for my entire 3 night stay. The sites are close together and there are really only about 24 30-amp full hookup sites, but there is plenty of room for people who want to dry camp since the whole property is grass covered. If there are not many people on property, you will be able to have space between you and your neighbor. I found the park easy to find with several signs posted to guide you to the RV sites. The sites are mostly level and easy to back into. I'm not sure why the prior reviewer didn't do so since there is plenty of room for rigs of all sizes. If there had been a lot of rain, there may be an issue with standing water. The utility connections are like new. It is a great spot to stay when visiting Lava Beds National Monument. Tulelake has only a tiny market and a single expensive gas pump. If you arrive well stocked and with plenty of fuel, you should be happy at this fairgrounds. There is a self pay station at the entry. You can also call ahead to the fairgrounds office to ask how busy the RV sites may be during your planned stay, though I do not believe that they accept reservations. There is no camp host.

This park is the only game in town if you want hookups. The free Wi-Fi at your site is a godsend since there is no cell service in Baker. You can drive about 5 miles away to get a signal on your phone. I stayed very early in the season and only a few others came and went during my 3 night stay. Much of the National Park was still closed due to snow. The young man who checked me in at the bar at 4pm was very nice and friendly. I'm not sure if the prior owners have retired or were out of town. Baker is quite an unusual town whose store does not open until 4pm in the spring. The park is a little funky and there really isnt a road in the park, you just drive up to your hookups. But for a big rig needing hookups, this place is an oasis at Great Basin.

This is the Passport America rate good for 3 nights. It is a very nice relatively new park with paved entry road, concrete pads and great connections. Check your GPS directions as some GPS units will place the park 4 miles away. Convenient access to the new shopping center and local casinos. The staff, office and store are very nice. I feel that the sites could be a bit longer. My 36 foot rig stuck out over the pavement, but I was told that they widened the pavement for that reason. There are some long-term people here and sadly it appears that they ran out of money before being able to finish the park. About 1/3 of the park is complete with pads, pavement and landscaping. As you travel further into the park the concrete pads and pavement become loose gravel and the grass gives way to rocks and weeds. It is still great for the price, but I would recommend requesting a grassy site when you make reservations and I hope that somehow they are able to finish the remainder of the park. I'd definitely come back again.

This was the weekly rate which makes the park reasonably priced if you have the luxury to stay for a week. I would rate a 9 if the Wi-Fi were free. The sites are long and paved with grass between sites. Sprinklers run during summer months and will likely spot your RV. The park staff are very nice and the surroundings are beautiful. Temps run 5-10 degrees below those in Reno making for comfortable weather. If you stay in spring, don't be surprised if you see snow. The deals at the casino are not as abundant this year as a sign of the times. The restaurant food was still good and dependable, but the slots are not very generous. New carpet, but still looks like it needs some TLC. Overall, it is a great place to stay.

You can't stay much closer to San Francisco for less then $50 per night. New rates took effect as of May 1st to $44 per night before Good Sam/AAA Discount. This property is immaculate and the hard working host is great. They are adding another 9 sites too. Reservations here should be made months in advance. They work hard to accommodate people, but all of the sites are full nearly every night. It's hard to believe that this is a fairgrounds property since it is nicer than most 5 star resorts. If you are planning a stay in the bay area, this is the place to be.

This was the KOA discount rate for a standard back-in site. This was my second time at this park and I still believe it to be the nicest in the KOA system. All of the sites are a bit short, but the drives are wide enough to park in front of your rig. They use a lot of water to maintain lush green grass and young trees. The sprinklers run every night and will soak anything you leave outside but do not seem to leave spots. There are some leaking water lines around. The Wi-Fi worked great. The concrete pads are just big enough to back onto for big rigs. The casino is a short 5 minute walk from your site or a free ride on the casino shuttle. Lots of new fun & loose slots and a buffet open almost all day everyday.

I was very happy with my stay at this park. It is not very big-rig friendly since you have to weave in and out between trees on dirt roads to get to your site. The park staff were all very nice and guide people with big rigs into their sites. All of the sites are plenty long and are very wide. They seemed as large as campsites inside the National Parks, but with the added benefit of full hookups, cable and free wifi. All of the sites are in the forest and have fire pits and picnic tables. Most are close to the creek. There is little chance of receiving a satellite signal at this location though. The park seems to struggle with keeping their cable connections working due to the harsh winters. I was only able to watch 2 TV stations of the 15 cable stations listed. If TV is important to you, you may be unhappy. With so much to do and the beautiful forest, it was no problem for me. The park is older and some of the utilities seem to be after thoughts, but the staff seem to do well to keep everyone happy. The free Wi-Fi worked great for 6 of my 7 nights stay. Verizon cell and data services were weak, but worked too. I would recommend making reservations here. I stayed for a week.

Wow! This is an EXCELLENT "RV" Park! The price is hard to beat anywhere in the Bay Area. Price reflects Good Sam rate. Make sure to have your card in good standing. There are currently only 2 options to choose from in Napa, and the Expo is hands down the nicest if you like staying at "Modern RV Parks." If you prefer a "Campground" atmosphere, you may prefer nearby Skyline Wilderness Park with nearly the same pricing. The Expo has extra long and wide 75' concrete pads at 12 pull-through sites and 7 long back-in sites. Each site with a large picnic table, wide grassy area and full-hookups. All roads are wide and paved. It was upgraded a few years ago and has no trees at the sites since 150 units use the same space during events held at the expo. There are lots of trees on the Expo property for taking walks or for walking pets. Sites face west, so you get afternoon sun on your patio. But, since each site has 4 sets of connections, you can probably ask if you may face east to get afternoon shade. There are not a lot of HOT days in Napa so, shade trees are not often needed. The nights are always cool and many mornings cloudy from coastal fog. The restrooms and showers are new, clean and private. There is a small laundry room which could be larger or have newer machines. There is free Wi-Fi which works well and the Camp Hosts couldn't be friendlier. Make sure to have reservations since they are full just about every night. They are very accommodating to fit people in whenever possible due to other cancellations. The Park deserves a 10, but there is no pool, spa, cable TV nor activities. Excellent place to stay for the price and location! I will back back again and again.

PPA rate shown. I give them an 8 for effort, but the park is still a work in progress. Very remote, but not far from town. WiFi worked well since there is little Verizon coverage for my air card. A few permanent people in a new park is concerning, but the owner's were very friendly. My site was perfectly level and the owner was grading the entire park during my visit. There is a nice, but narrow grassy area at each site. Sites appear short, but you extend out into VERY wide lanes for all pull-throughs. Still a lot of projects going on, or just part way complete, but I can tell they are working really hard and will gladly come back again.

YVI & RV Park requested that I write a "NICE" review upon my checkout. I have a feeling that some of the recent reviews online are "Ringers." RVParkreviews is my only reference for locating quality RV Parks and I am grateful. So, I realize that RV Park owners highly value this site too. Overall, I feel that I received a good deal and fair treatment at this park; though I want to point out that I choose RV parks based on ratings, then price. If a park accepts a 50% discount camping plan, that is secondary and an added bonus. I'm often reluctant to use PPA as I sense the negative reaction of RV Parks when I ask about using PPA and don't feel as welcome at the parks. I'd like RV Park owners to note that we all want to be 100% welcome even if we are paying 50% the price. YVI does a pretty good job for a new RV Park. I was here early in the season and the restaurant was not yet open. The PPA site shows that they accept PPA for 2 nights on W/E AND Full hook-ups, though they would not book me into a FHU with my PPA discount, even though they were not busy, but they did NOT charge me $5 to dump. I think that all of the W/E sites are 30 amp only, but have nicer views and are larger than the FHU sites. The park gets 2nd prize for worst water pressure which took about 1 minute to kick in and they request no use of personal washer/dryers. The laundry is good, but could be nicer. Very low water pressure here too and almost no hot water. True, they are 30 miles from Yellowstone, but it is another 27 miles from here to the Lake and almost 100 miles each way to the main geyser basins. Because of this, I would not choose to stay here as a base camp for visiting Yellowstone. If you can bare being without power, many campgrounds within the park are very nice, or there is another nice RV park in West Yellowstone much closer to the attractions.

The owner works hard to make this park nice. Arriving only days after the park opening for the season, I could tell that a lot had been done to make the park ready. I don't suggest using email to make a reservation since I did and arrived without them expecting me. It appears to be CASH only as well. A sign on the highway advertises full hook-ups, but I could not find any while at the park. I also did not know that they had 50 amp sites, though they may, but was not told, nor offered one. I was quickly offered a nice long site that backs up to the creek which roars during early season. It was very nice down there with plenty of space and fire rings and fires allowed at many of the sites. Nobody seemed to care about other campers with their unleashed dogs in the park. There is a very tight and narrow curve on the hillside leading to the section below: Beware. If you like to keep your indoors clean, I would not recommend staying near the creek in late May/early June being that all of the trees drop sticky seeds and leave stains. I needed to use a scrub brush to clean my shoes every time that I went inside. And forget about it if you have pets. It is gorgeous though, just outside of town and down the road from the scenic start of the Beartooth Hwy. The park was fogged in for most of my stay, though sunny toward the Beartooth just a few miles down. Forget about using a rooftop satellite down below: too many trees, and no local TV antenna reception. That being said, I would go back again: just later in the season.

The park would have received my 1st 10 rating if not for a few things. The rate is in line with other local parks and this park is very well kept, though more than I usually pay. There are many ample sized full hook-up sites large enough for my 36 ft motorhome, many pull throughs and some with 50amp. The narrow/ roads are a challenge to maneuver without signs to point the way, many grade changes and curves between trees. If you're not good with this, you may want to choose another park. Not a complaint: though the word "Meadow" in the park name could fool you since all sites are heavily pine forested. My rooftop satellite worked on the first try though. WiFi looks good, though I have my own Verizon service which works well. My toad had been covered in gravel from a long drive in the rain. Though washing is not allowed, I wanted to quickly use a hose to rinse my windows so that I could drive to a car wash in town. Using an empty site, I quickly and respectfully used about 2 gallons of water. Then to be confronted by a work-camper and reminded of their no-wash policy and told that she could not rent the site for the night since it was too wet. Though it had rained all day. I'll feel uncomfortable at the park for the remainder of my 6 night stay because of this.

This park is an amazing oasis of wildlife just outside of downtown Riverside and located close to many RV dealerships and shopping. I saw more wildlife at this county park than at any other place I have visited. There are only 12 full hook-up sites, but you can reserve online and pick your own site at the Riverside County Parks website. You can also get in for half-price Mon - Thurs if you have a Passport America Membership. The full hookup sites are on the lake and are quite large. They allow campfires too. They are doing an expansion to include a mini golf course, more campsites and activities to open in May 2009. I have stayed there many times and have always been very happy. The staff are very nice and regularly patrol the park with gated security.

Of more than 50 parks visited over the year, this park was by far my most favorite. I stayed during a very slow period just after a cold spell when snow had fallen at the park. The snow had melted and the weather was comfortable for February in the low 60's. The drive up is somewhat challenging, but it is not long at a little less than 8 miles. You climb from about 2,500 to an elevation of 4,000 ft before dropping down to the valley at 3,700 ft. The park is very large and divided into 6 different sections with varying types of sites. Shaded, some shade, secluded, pull-through, back-in, pull-in, etc. Nearly all of the sites are quite large and are not set up in lines like in a parking lot and like so many other resorts. You can get a true feeling of being in the great outdoors with beautiful scenery from every site. All of the interior roads are paved as well as the sites. There are picnic tables and grills at each site too. The restaurant and bar are great. The store is well stocked and the staff are all very friendly. There are a lot of activities during summer and lots for kids to do. It was beautifully quiet in February. Summer may be a tad noisy, but there are many sites far and away from all of the activities. The resort town of Idyllwild is just 16 miles away and there is plenty of shopping in Banning just at the bottom of the hill: 15 minutes away by car. I will be back to this park many times. I can't say enough, how much I enjoyed myself here.

I apologize to all who would disagree with me, but who wants to stay in a gravel parking lot when there are so many other beautiful choices? I am of the "Old School" where people went to campgrounds to enjoy the scenery and the great outdoors. Not to be herded into a parking lot! The desert is beautiful in winter, but unless you like to 4-wheel, I don't see why people would enjoy themselves at this park. The people at the park were friendly and welcoming and the park is relatively full in winter. It's just that the park is 100% gravel and is enclosed by a chain linked fence. It has no plants nor trees inside other than a few around the office and activity center. Unless you have a site on the edge, there is no view of the desert. The sites are all good sized and there is now Free Wi-Fi. Cell service is good. The drive in is not too bad and the park is quiet. There are no major grocery stores in the area. Planning ahead for meals is recommended. I only stayed one night when I originally planned for three. I don't foresee a reason to come back. Sorry.

I used my ROD membership to stay for free. The park has a very homey back country feel to it with few amenities, but was very welcoming with friendly staff. I was impressed that most of the campsites were completely grassy with very few annoying weeds - even where you park your car and rig. Apparently, sites are roped off in order to allow the grass to rejuvinate. I had a very large site, but was not aware that the park had Wi-Fi service. The Delta breeze makes it very comfortable. I am told that there was a recent water problem after my stay that may be worth asking about. I prefer this park much more than the nearby Lighthouse Marina resort even though there are fewer amenities.

I stayed for free using my ROD membership. This park was one of my favorite stops this year. Apparently, thay have made some upgrades to the restrooms. There was a new mobile trailer with new showers and bathrooms close to the pool area. I had a very large campsite and was able to access the free Wi-Fi from my site. The nicely stocked camp store and deli with good food has 2 terminals for Wi-Fi access as well. The great thing about the park is that you can walk right into the American River from many of the campsites. The riverfront is long enough that you can tube from one end to the other in about an hour to enjoy the very cool water on a hot day. The main roads are paved, though the access to most sites is graveled. There were a lot of nice people at the park and the Rangers were very friendly. It is located close to Coloma and Marshall Gold Discovery park which was interesting to see. I look forward to returning to this park with friends and will stay at a river front site which is worth the lack of sewer hookup.

This is a very popular park due to its proximity to Yosemite. The routes to the park are very mountainous. The park is within walking distance to the lake and the nearby resort village with a well stocked market. The office staff and park management are a bit rigid and could be nicer, but perhaps this is how the park is kept so well. Most big rigs and 5th wheels are herded into a small valley in the center of the park where the sites are very small. I closed one of my slides in order to give my neighbor room enough for a picnic table. Most sites in that section are awning to awning, some with slides within inches of one another. The park amenities are nice and all of the visitors to the park were very friendly and welcoming. The Wi-Fi service became weaker as the park filled to the point where I could no longer access the internet. The cable channel selection is excellent including some movie channels. The sewer connections are a bit unique, but posed no problems. There are sites much larger and more spread out in the surrounding wooded areas. If you are good at maneuvering through narrow openings and gullies it is well worth the effort vs being cattle herded into the center section. The park is out of the way, but worth going back to again.

I stayed at the park during peak season when rates are higher. It is a very high quality RV park excellent for big rigs with many pull throughs and good sized sites. The staff are very nice and there are many amenities. It is close to the railroad tracks which takes some getting used to. The onsite observatory is great with a nice nightly starwatching program. I am told that January is the best month to see the stars. There are many large trees though no amount of trees helps during the hot summer months. There is a Safeway just outside of the park, if you are traveling without a Toad. I will definitely stay at this park again.

This is a members only resort, and I am a WHR member. The park is one of the nicest that I have stayed. There is lots of open space within the park and most of the campsites are quite large. This park is clean, well-kept and has the most amenities of any park where I have stayed and lots of activities. I will keep coming back.

This is a very clean well kept park in an urban city. It is close to the freeway, but has 24 hour security and gates. It is located behind the RV Dealership and the RV sales staff spend a lot of time speeding through the park in noisy golf carts scoping out potential new RV buyers. The amenities are great and most of the staff are nice. The restaurant serves very good meals though their hours are limited or they are closed during the hot summer season. There is a Camping World store at the front of the property, which is very convenient. This is a great place to stop over for a few nights. The park is full during winter months and nearly empty from April to October. The customer service at the dealership is horrible, but good to have there if you need some work done.

I used my ROD membership to stay at this park for free. The entry/exit to the park is very narrow and the staff at check-in could have been nicer. The "park on the red line" rule is a bit odd, but seemed to work out alright even though it placed my doorstep off of the concrete pad which was broken. I was not offered to choose my own site which you can many times at membership parks and was assigned a site that was not to my liking though there are many sites that seemed to be nice at the park. Unfortunately, there are also many permanent residents at the park. At the least, people who don't appear to have moved for quite a long time. I was assigned a site with a pretty ugly view next to an older man with a rig nearly as old as he that did not appear to have any electrical power in 108 degree heat. I felt sorry for him, but he also made me feel uncomfortable there. I am sure that I could have asked for a different site without any problems. I was just passing through and it was unbearably hot, so I cut my stay short from 4 days to just 2 in hopes of reaching a nicer park. If you have a choice, the Western Horizons Charleston Peak Resort is much, much nicer to stay at, though it is farther from shops and casinos.

I used my AOR membership to stay at this park. After coming from a not so quiet park at Lake Tahoe, I was pleasantly surprised with this park. The other recent comments for this park are true, but I was lucky to have stayed midweek when it was quiet, and to have met lots of nice people while at the park. The facilities are very well kept and the surrounding rolling hills and crisp clean air were very welcome. The park even has a full bar with big screen tv and casino Poker machines to occupy your time. The park is about 30 miles from the nearest stop light, so stock up on supplies and hold little hope for cell service. There is a payphone in the very clean laundry room with a dial-up phone line for internet service which worked out ok for me. Come prepared with a calling card though since the payphone takes no coins and I had the unfortunate discovery that my short phone calls were costing me $20 - $30 each on my credit card. The sites are adequate in size, though most face one another. It is a good place to meet new friends. The only other downside was an overabundance of houseflies which took me about a week to irradicate from my RV. I will definitely stay here again.

The RV park is very clean and well kept. The sites are even swept after check-out. The price charged is way too much even considering the location on Lake Tahoe. The resort is very busy and the staff are not genuinly helpful. The restaurant was average, though the gift shop was quite nice. The beach was very crowded. This is not a good choice for older folks in nice rigs who want some quiet enjoyment. The park is almost always full with lots of families traveling with carloads of children, and college age folks who walk through the park intoxicated at night. All of the sites are paved and many of them are pull-thrus. Unfortunately, most of the sites are sloping and there are few sites with level patio areas and the vacant paved pull-thru sites were used more as roads and walkways for a constant flow of obnoxious people and fast moving vehicles. Do not have mail sent to you at this park. You will be lucky to receive it. A mail service picks up the mail for the management company who is off property, and never answers their phone. The park is open all year and has a winter water supply. It may be worth checking out in winter when passing through the Tahoe area. Otherwise, you'd likely be happier in a hotel on the strip at Stateline.

I have rated this park pretty well due to its location right outside the Humboldt Redwoods State Park. The Park is just down the road from the Avenue of the Giants and close to an adequate mini mart. I did eat at the winery and restaurant nearby, which was excellent. The park was quiet while I was here, and the weather was beautiful. The RV pull-through site that I had was very long, but also very narrow. Everyone at the park including other campers were very nice. The cable TV service did not provide any major network channels. The laundry was closed for repairs, and the restrooms were not clean and in need of repairs. The camp store was cute and the staff was nice. There was some neighborhood noise late at night, but it was bearable. I would definitely stay at this park again.

I wish that I had read the reviews for this park before staying there. A sign at check-in reads that they do not advertise a quiet environment. They are right. This is the worst park that I have stayed in. I was ready to check-out right after check-in. I hid away inside for RV for 4 nights anxious to leave since there is a no refund policy. The park is on the lake, but the water is a good 80 foot below with no safe path to get to it. All of the sites are small, dirt only and difficult to get into. I have a 36 foot rig which barely fit into the largest campsite there. The trash was not emptied while I was there and smelled terrible with visible rats around the containers. I won't go back.

This is my home membership park with Western Horizons, which I purchased as a new full-timer. There are many WHR parks that are much nicer, though the St David Resort offers a great escape from the desert environment. Nestled in a narrow riparian area, there are 2 small stocked manmade lakes with geese, ducks and bullfrogs, tall trees and about 20 large campsites at the lake. The lake sites do not have sewer service. I plan to purchase a portable gray water tank since these are the nicest sites at the park, and the one set of restrooms and showers can become dirty by days end. The staff are nice, the pool and clubhouse are average. It would be nice if the park had 50amp service and Wi-Fi. All park roads are dirt and gravel with numerous over zealous speed bumps. The environment is very dusty at times, and ants can be a problem. The mid section of the park has full hookups and some shade trees, but many of the dirt campsites are enclosed by decorative wooden rails which make it difficult for people with multiple slides to fit into. There are a few permanent residents (aka employees) who unfortunately occupy most of the few nice sites that there are. The upper section opens only during peak season, is called Satellite city. It borders on the raw desert on 3 sides and there are no shade trees. Most of the sites are average in size or smaller. This section is green for a few months after the rainy season ends. If you are not comfortable with things that creep, crawl, go bump in the night and perhaps carry your small pets away, you may not want to stay in the upper section of the park. One can hope for some improvement at this park, though it has its charms and possibilities.

This was the nicest of 30 parks that I have stayed at this year. The park is very new and very well groomed with lush green weed-free grass. A lot of water is used to keep it so lush, but I was very pleased with the clean feeling at the park. Very wide drives with many pull-throughs. The concrete patio pads are very nice, though could be a foot or two wider. The fact that this KOA does not allow tent camping changes the environment and is very unique - yet a pleasant surprise. The adjacent casino is nice and offered the best buffet of any I have visited. I will definitely stay here again.

I used my ROD membership to stay at this park, which should have been free of charge. The park charges a $2 utility fee per night ($5 for 50amp service) and an additional $2 if you have pets. The campsites are very small, many of which are set up so that you face your neighbor. The site between mine and another was so small that I offered that my neighbor could use the area behind my awning as their outdoor area. Otherwise, they had nothing more than a narrow pathway outside of their coach. The restaurant was good, though they close pretty early. The park was full and the weather was pretty warm during my stay, which caused numerous electrical problems. The power would not stay on during Saturday which caused my 30amp adapter to melt. The voltage at my site was as low as 93 when it should have been at least 110. One of my circuits blew in my coach, and I had to go for emergency repairs in Lodi. The park should have a better electrical grid if they are charging a utility surcharge. The staff were nice and helpful, though the amenities left a lot to be desired. The pool was green, as was the jacuzzi. The campsites are surrounded by a lot of stored old RV's, boats and campers. The sites recommended for satellite service are in a remote ugly treeles section. The nicest and largest sites are water and electric only. The camp store should not be considered a store. Other than beer, there is not much to buy. The Delta is very nice, but I recommend staying at Delta Shores which is another membership park just down the road.

I used my ROD membership to stay at this park for no nightly fee. The Park appearance is not bad. It is a good distance from Winters, which is the nearest town. The other direction leads you past Lake Berryessa and the dam, which is not much to see, and there appears to be no public access to the lake. The park is located in a steep, narrow canyon. I chose a site with full hookups which was not bad, though it was in a complete dead zone where strangely enough - not even my remote controls nor my remote control for my car would work. There is was no satellite service, no cable, no antenna TV reception, no Cell Service whatsoever, and no Internet service. The park has a significant bee problem. Several campers had purchased bee traps which were full. I could not enjoy a meal outdoors nor spend much time outdoors there because of the numerous bees which were all around. Several neighboring campers told me that they had been stung. I even had a bat wedged into my window one morning. I think there is some sort of radio interference being generated from the dam in the area. I would likely not stay at this park again.

The other 3 recent reviews of this park are unfortunately accurate and the park has not improved. The park now offers Wi-Fi for a fee, though I did not use it. The first impression of the park is poor, in that several permanent residents (sometimes referred to as employees) occupy most of the spaces nearest the entrance in old, campers and motorhomes - some with broken windows. There are some nice campsites in the park, but I was not offered one of the nice campsites which are in a back area with concrete slabs and full-hookups. A few of those were not occupied, but were being used as parking spaces for the people who were staying in adjacent sites. During my 5 night stay, only one other guest spoke with me and almost nobody spent time outdoors. The park charges a $2 per night fee for cable regardless of whether you use it. The channel selection was good and since a tree was blocking my satellite reception, I used it. The park water pressure was the lowest that I have experienced where barely a trickle comes out of the tap. There appears to be a significant ant problem at the park as seen from the use of lots of white powder surrounding many other coaches. The entry is steep and has several pot holes to avoid. If I were to stay there again, I would ask for a water and electric only site close to the creek as those sites were the nicest, but I would have to ask for the key and pay the deposit in order to use the facilities. The climate at the park seemed to be much cooler than neighboring Cottonwood and Camp Verde which was nice.
