We enjoyed our short stay as this park is close to Old Mesilla where we have a favorite restaurant. The staff is very friendly and gladly accepted our mail and gave us a quick check in. This park has some residents along the back row, however, all rigs looked keep up well and we felt secure in the area. At this price, for an overnight it worked well for us and we would stay here again as it is much easier to get into than places we have stayed in town.

This rate reflects the basic weekly rate. You pay electric on top of this which is metered. This park has much to offer and is in an area rich with history and site seeing for the San Antonio and Fredricksburg area. There are so many activities offered that one could have an entire vacation while staying in this park. Offered are many group meals, crafts, tours, etc. that one is welcome to sign up for if willing to pay the requested fees (which seem mostly reasonable). This park is primarily big rig and thus we would stay here again.

We lucked onto this after we couldn't locate Mount View RV Park (which turned out to be off the main highway instead at the 1120 I-10 address shown on the website). The folks here were very nice and this was just a quick overnight for us. Very quiet park. Excellent drinking water. Easy on and off I-10 on the East end of Bowie. Would definitely stay again if we need an overnight in the area. This is not a scenic area so unless you are looking for extreme rest and relaxation it might not be the park for you.

This was our second stay in this park and this time it was just an overnight on our way south for the winter. It is always nice to be greeted by the roadrunners here and the other patrons of the park all seem very friendly. There is easy access to this park, beautiful Arizona sunsets, and nice flat sites with plenty of room. We will stay here again when passing through.

This was our second stay at this park and lucked out to get assigned the same site we had before. Even though the sites are somewhat narrow we have found it is easy to get into for us (40 ft. fifth wheel). The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. We will most likely continue to stay here when visiting friends in Palm Desert as it is convenient to them and the businesses in the area.

We had no trouble with the staff. Enjoyed the use of the small but efficient gym. The traffic noise will drive you crazy unless you can take out your hearing aids or wear an IPOD to bed which is what I did. It was very convenient to where we needed to be so we liked that part. It's a little difficult to negotiate the one way street with the BIG rigs but we really liked Grants Pass, and the park worked for us. We stayed here for a week.

The rate shown is the old montly rate. We have just been informed that monthly will go up $200 the first of the year. (They only gave those who are residents 27 days notice). Daily rate will be $59. Doesn't affect us as we won't be here. This park is advertised as a resort, but not only is the previous review correct about the spaces being small and the staff being rude, but also IT IS NO RESORT. We have stayed here several times over the past couple of years, and it has the coldest swimming pool around - it's even too cold to swim in during the high heat of summer. The restrooms have no heat or air conditioning nor does the laundry room. Although the fenced dog run is large, it isn't safe for the smaller dogs as it has a huge drain pipe that drains into the dog run and fills up with swampy smelly water when it rains. Wonder what diseases this water contains? The park isn't worth the old rate let alone the new rate. I suspect this park will be in bankruptcy once again after the first of the year. We have noticed many areas where the park just isn't as nice as it once was. There is trash along the fences that has been there for well over a month.

I agree with the other reviewers that it has sparse trees and is very cold in the fall, we had 28 degrees in early November. The staff was very nice and helpful, and we found several wonderful side trips to take while in the area. We will definitely stay here again as the laundry is clean, and the restrooms are very nice, and it wasn't crowded. We have a 40 ft. fifth wheel which was no problem in the space we were in because there was plenty of room to put the truck alongside.

As mentioned in previous reviews, sites are very narrow and difficult for the big rigs to get into without running over parts of the grass which is a big NO NO according to park rules and they have you sign off on them at the entrance. (We even had a park resident run to tattle to the security guard when we accidentally clipped the outside corner of the grass getting in). Beautifully kept grass, nice recreation room, wonderful laundry, nice folks at the registration desk, very convenient to Safeway, etc. Some truck noise since Safeway trucks deliver at night just behind the park. We would probably try one of the other parks in the area closer to I-5 if just passing through or closer to the coast if we are visiting the coast next time.

We stayed here in a fifth wheel and extended our stay by one week due to the beautiful fall colors coming on and the fact that this was a nice quiet park to stay. Convenient for traveling to Mt. St. Helens, Astoria OR, Longbeach WA, the Dalles, many fish hatcheries, Portland, etc. Nice park with large sites and easy pull thrus. Very clean and kept. Would definitely book here again.

Nice place, easy in and out, easy to find, very friendly park staff. This is a beautiful setting for any size rig (we are 40 feet) and convenient to town only a few miles away where you can easily catch the Victoria Express ferry to Victoria, BC for the day. Some sites have fire rings, park is pet friendly and extremely quiet and peaceful at night. We will definitely come back again. The only shortcomings we could find was that there is no cable TV. The one channel we could get consistently was a mish mash of things we never watch on TV like old 1960 reruns. The other thing is that the laundry works great but is so small that with a full campground there is only two washers and dryers, we ended up going to town to laundry.

Very friendly owner who isn't shy to let you know he is a good Christian man. Park is off the main highway 1/2 mile paved and 1/4 mile good gravel packed road. Has full hook up sites however isn't designated an RV park but more of a campground. This means you can dump your holding tanks at your site sewer connection but you cannot keep it connected during your entire stay. Wasn't much inconvenience for us as we have 4-5 day dry camping ability. Convenient to the city 10 miles away (south) and approx. six miles to Farragut State Park. Very quiet at night. A few trains but mostly noticed them during the day. As noted by other reviewers, the biggest noise comes from the machine shop next door where they like to drop the bucket on the front end loader several times a day. This park accepts cash only so come prepared. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying again when in the area.

Pass this one by!. They messed up our reservation even though we had written internet confirmation and they already charged our credit card for the FULL five days. They did not have a space reserved for us and they had no space available. Could have been quite a scramble for a 40 ft. rig like ours, luckily they did tell us about the Cedar Grove Dude ranch up the road. Despite fewer services the price was a little higher but it is much more private and in the woods, away from the train. The Alpine Store clerks' comment upon our arrival was that they had messed up reservations all summer. Sounds like time for a new manager and a better staff with knowledge of the computer program to schedule this. Look to other parks in the area, there are some very nice ones.

Train track runs directly adjacent to the park. Many long, long trains and they blow their whistles at the several close crossings. Very annoying during the night. Lake is pretty but not appetizing as a place to swim. The staff has made an effort to provide activities (oversized chess, checkers, and pick up sticks). Probably a better appreciated park by families than full timers. It was easy to find, easy off the highway. Nice to be able to book on the web and not have to provide all the information again upon arrival. We only stayed one night. We would probably pass this one by the next time due to the train noise.

The owners and staff of this campground are very pleasant. This park has been owned by the same folks for the past 45 years and is well laid out. We had a site up front due to our late booking and accepting a back in site as the pull through s apparently were all booked. (Many seemed to remain empty much of our week here). Next time we would prefer a pull through as they are in the woods and feel much more like the Montana experience we were looking for. Very convenient to the Glacier Park entrance. Lots of traffic noise through much of the park but it does quiet down after 10 pm. Nightly public campfire can be fun, was well attended during high season, not so much after the season starts to drop off in mid August. We stayed a week and would consider staying here again. The baked goods are delicious.

This is a beautifully well maintained park with nice staff. The laundry facility was sufficient for us as we only stayed one week and timed our wash during the low use times. It was very clean and had nice folding and hanging space. Very easy in to the park. A little trickier out if you are heading back towards I-90. We took advantage of the entertainment provided and really enjoyed our stay. Although there were some children in the park mostly it was occupied by adult full and part time travelers. We would stay here again. As previously mentioned it is the better park in the area.

This seems the better of the two parks in the area. Although there is some train noise as stated in previous reviews, it is minimal and not at unreasonable hours. The pull through site we had was not level and made it a challenge to level out and the picnic table was useless as it was very rickety. It was easy in and out of the park and very convenient to all we wished to do in Bozeman and Yellowstone. The trees were very nice and it has a good petwalk area. We would stay here again, however, we might be more specific about picking a more level site. Pool was as stated, full of kids.

We only stayed here one night and it worked well for us. However, be aware that the directions in your GPS may send you in the opposite direction of the park. The roads are a bit narrow, other than that it was perfect. This would be a great destination park to meet up with family (kids or grand-kids) as it is really geared for the younger crowd. We would stay again and stay longer if we had family to visit with here.

I agree with all the previous reviews which state WAY OVERPRICED! We shared our space with a regular travel trailer and they were only three feet out the front door. There is NOTHING special about this park and should be passed by until they fix the parking problems and lower their prices. Camp store was understocked, especially considering the park was full and could have done a great business on concessions alone. Somewhat difficult to maneuver through the park with a large unit. Dog run okay for the smaller dogs, river walk okay but nothing really special. We would pass the RV parks by in Billings altogether next time and stay in the next town over.

In agreement with previous reviews. Staff was cordial but mostly business. Very nice, small laundry facility. Easy to find, easy to maneuver a big rig through, fairly level and definitely pet friendly with lots of room to run on the back lot. We stayed for four nights but would stay longer next time as it is a nice park for socializing. Nothing really fancy but certainly served our purpose well.

Rate reflects AARP discount. Very nice staff. Called the office ahead of entry time and they told us the easiest way to get here. Would have been difficult to find without these directions, as signage is there but not very dynamic. Nice onsite laundry facility. Wonderful shady areas, many fulltime summer residents, some with older units but found other campers to be friendly. Very pet friendly. Had an occasion to utilize the services of the local veterinarian's office in Tea: was very delightful and reasonable. On the down side the mosquitoes were rampant and likely to carry you off despite bug spray. We stayed here in a 40 ft. toy hauler with three slides. Found it easy to maneuver through the park. We found a gym close by that was willing to give us a two week membership for a super good price and really got our monies worth. Tried the Tea Steak House and had a great steak dinner at a reasonable price and found the towns people of Tea to be very friendly. Overall the experience of our two week stay was good. We would recommend this as a nice quiet park but be sure to call for directions. There is MUCH road work going on in this area and lots of gravel roads. You can get to the park on paved roads.

Nicest park we have stayed in since we became full timers nine months ago. It was very quiet at night. It's a beautiful country setting with the convenience of a small town close by. The history of the area is terrific and the townspeople willing to share their knowledge. The space we were assigned was on the lower level and had ample room for both our 40-footer with three slides, and for our puppy to run and play and not bother other campers. The wildlife (deer, rabbits, and birds) came right into our camp. Lots of shade trees which are well kept and won't interfere with any size rig. WiFi worked fine, cable was good, site was level and lush. We will stay here again.

The staff was friendly and efficient, even checking on tent and cabin sites to assure things were out of the weather when tornado and high wind warnings were present. We had been informed ahead of time there were no full hook up sites available, however, the dump station was available. We found this to be very little inconvenience for the price. This park is convenient to all of the areas wonderful site seeing. Very quiet at night. Our 40 footer fit in the nice wide, grassy pull throughs and albeit the laundry is small, it is functional. Water and 30 amp electric worked fine. 50 amp was not available at many sites. WiFi worked well even when it showed a weak signal. We would stay here again.

Agree with the comments below. The wind ALWAYS blows in Rock Springs so be prepared and keep your awnings retracted. Just stopped for an overnight. Has a very friendly and efficient staff. Park was full but noise was minimal: even with the train there are no crossings, so no blasts all night long. Would stay here again.

It's true, the sites are narrow, especially if you have slide out rooms. The office was kind enough to try to keep from renting the space next to ours when other sites were available since it was a tight squeeze for even a travel trailer to fit into the space. The management seems very disorganized. The original site we were assigned was occupied when we arrived, and they didn't know how many units were coming in from a group they had booked to arrive the next week. We thought we might have to move during our stay but lucked out. Also, note they are not set up to accept US Postal deliveries at the street address,. Our mail got sent back to its place of origination. The park has many residents, but overall the folks we met were friendly. It is very convenient to the freeway without a lot of noise, and shopping was a breeze. There was easy access to the park, and price was about right for what you got. Laundry was functional but very cramped when other campers/residents utilized it at the same time. Disappointed that the pool was not up and running. With the park full and the weather warm it would have been much better to relax around the pool. We might stay here again, in a pinch, just because of the easy on, easy off access to the freeway.

Nice folks managing the park. We have stayed here several times. Like the convenience of having in park RV washing and detailing as they do a great job for a good price. Easy to park and convenient clean facilities. The bonus is they have fresh baked cookies every afternoon. Very pet friendly and well kept park.

Folks were exceptionally friendly, pool and hot tub were nice. Laundry convenient and clean. This is a train town. Trains go through parallel to towns main street (2 blocks away from park) approximately every 22 minutes twenty four hours a day. Bring your earplugs or ipod. They have on-site astronomy and a small observatory. Very interesting and exceptionally well programmed.
