This was a nice, quaint little park. We chose this location because of its proximity to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. It was a very nice Park. There were only 7 spots, so not a lot of traffic. The grounds had a lot of very green grass, which was nice for our kids. We played frisbee and threw a ball back and forth, without having to worry about hitting or bothering anyone. The guy that checked us in was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again if passing through this area.
You can't beat the price! Water and electric hookups only, and no dump station. All spots are back-in on dirt/gravel parking spaces. The spaces are very close together. The night we were there, all the spots were occupied, so there was no "elbow room". There is a small community grassy area with picnic tables behind the parking spaces. Check-in is at the golf course clubhouse. Great location for visiting the Trail Ruts State Park and Register Cliff. We also went to Fort Laramie National Monument, which is 10 miles up the road. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were willing to do whatever they could to make our stay pleasant. We had great views of the golfers approaching the 9th green. I'm sure they appreciated my kids' noise while they were chipping and putting!
The greatest selling point of this RV Park is its location. It is a rarity to find full hookups inside a National Park. And for that reason (location), it is in high demand. They know it too, as evidenced by the price. We suggest you make reservations well in advance. It was completely full for the entire time we were there. The location is close to the visitors center and the amphitheater (in which there were nice nightly ranger-led programs on various topics). It is also close to the general store and some restaurants. Showers were available for a fee. The sites were packed pretty close together, but we found it amazingly quiet. Our site was somewhat out of level, so it took some effort getting level.
This park is decent for an stop-over. We stayed here on our way west through Montana. It is located right off the freeway, so you can definitely hear the "hum of the road", although it died down pretty good at night. The owners were friendly and gave us good directions to the grocery store in town. We had a pull-through site. It was pretty level. and was gravel. Nice grass as well, but the spaces were pretty close together. They warned us to watch out for rattlesnakes, but we didn't see any. There are some medium-sized trees that provide some shade, depending on where the sun is. We would stay here again if passing through in the same situation (looking for a nice one-night stop-over location).
We like this location a lot. We chose it because of its proximity to Scott's Bluff National Monument. It turned out to be very close -- about 5 minutes drive. The Park turned out to be very nice as well. There is a nice playground for the kids. The staff was very nice...they even warned us about a tornado warning that had been issued and let us know where the tornado shelter was (in the women's showers). Luckily, we didn't need to use it. Spaces are paved and level, and there is ample room between spaces. There is a large, open grassy area in the middle of the Park, in which we played frisbee without worrying about hitting anyone's rigs. Would definitely stay here again if we passed this way.
We had a nice pull-through spot with plenty of shade, but there were other spots that appeared to not have much shade. There is a nice view of the Tower from the RV Park. The Park is literally right next to the Monument. You hit the entrance station to the Monument as soon as you pull out of the Park's parking lot. There is a nice swimming pool that the kids liked, and there is a nice playground for the kids as well.
My kids just told me that they "loved it". It was a very nice, quiet location. This park is close enough to town, but far enough away that you really feel like you are out "in the woods". The owners are very friendly. We played volleyball!
This is a decent in-the-city type RV park. Sites are very close together. It was fine for a quick one-night stop over. We didn't use the pool, but there was a line of kids waiting to get into it in the morning. A sign said it was supposed to open at 9am, but at 9:45 the kids were still waiting outside the fence waiting for it to open. The showers and bathrooms were clean and worked well.
This RV park is right next to Lagoon theme park (the only thing standing between the theme park and the RV park is a chain link fence) . This is a perfect location if your intent is to visit Lagoon. Access to Lagoon is made easy by staying here -- you can head back to the RV for lunch or to rest your legs during day without any problem. However, if you are not there to go to Lagoon, you would likely be disappointed by this location. Because of its proximity to the theme park, you get to hear all the noise from the thrill rides at the park; this continues late into the night until Lagoon closes at 11:00 or midnight. The RV park is full of mature shade trees. There is a small store on the grounds at which you can buy limited supplies and grocery-type items.
This is a great location for just relaxing. There is a huge grassy area where kids can play. We had a family reunion here wherein our group used 5 spots. Each spot has electric and water hookups, but no sewer. There are two dump locations at the park, so it is easy to take care of that when leaving. There are A LOT of very mature shade trees, so even though we were there in the middle of summer with high temperature of 100 degrees, the shade made it just fine. The campground host and the park rangers were very friendly.
This is not a great location. I would describe it as very "odd". It is basically a small grass area with gravel RV sites around the outside of the grass. The sites are VERY close together, so, like it or not, you will get to know your neighbors very well. There are no bathrooms or showers. The office is rarely open. In fact, during the 4 days we stayed there, we didn't even see the "manager" until the 3rd day; after that 2-minute interchange, we didn't see her at all for the rest of our stay.
