Rate is for Passport America. This is a perfect park for visiting Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park in the Badlands National Forest. Access to the park was good as was getting around on the gravel roads. Management and staff were very helpful. Our site was gravel and very level. We had a small bit of grass, a picnic table and a fire ring. There are few trees but most sites are lined up so that you have afternoon shade in your patio area. The showers are individual and looked clean. The laundry, while more money than I am used to paying, was very nice and clean with newer machines. Wi-Fi worked very well but not too many channels on the cable. Utilities were good. There was a small playground for the children and a dog walking area. I thought this was an excellent campground and would certainly return.
What a nice RV park, located within walking distance of Wall Drug. I enjoyed our stay here and would come back. Management was very pleasant when I made my reservation and also when we checked in. Interior roads and pads are gravel and in good shape. Our site was very level. We had grass, a small tree and a picnic table. Our dog enjoyed the dog park. There is a nice play area for the children and the laundry looked good but I didn’t use it or the bathrooms. The Wi-Fi was the best we have had in 4 months of travel. The park is right next to the railroad but it did not bother us at all.
This park has nice paved roads and pads with grass and a picnic table. The pad was level and fairly wide. I was told quite curtly that the only pull-throughs they had were in the old section and I could have that if I wanted dirt and tight trees. With a large 5th wheel we had a difficult time backing into the site that was shared with another right behind us--about 7 feet. The road was very narrow. We had no choice but to un-hitch as the space was too short. Parking was provided next to the pad. Most of the sites have permanent residents and at 7 AM all the trucks start up and people leave for work. There are few overnight sites available. Call ahead! The laundry is nice and clean but not all machines work all the time. Management is aware of the problem but have not fixed it. I did not use the restrooms. We followed the directions on the web site, which tell you to make a U-turn but we were too big and had to go around the block, so access is not easy. The park is located right next to the noisy freeway which makes being outdoors very unpleasant. Utilities worked well and the Internet worked occasionally.
Rate is Passport America. What a little gem this is if you like small quiet parks. We stopped here just for an overnighter. There isn’t much else around so we didn’t even unhitch. The manager was very welcoming and took us personally to our site which was a long and wide, level pull-through with a shade tree that didn’t interfere with our slides, grass and a nice picnic table and fire ring. We had our choice of 30 or 50 amp and the water pressure was perfect. The Wi-Fi worked just fine. It was so quiet and peaceful there with big trees and lots of grass. There was even an area in the back where I was able to let my dog run off leash a bit. I would definitely return. This park is a favorite!
Rate is for Passport America. Loved this park. Our site was level and we were able to remain hooked up. Access from the freeway was easy and the noise was minimal. We had a nice pull-thru with grass, table and fire pit. Management was very friendly, water and power were good. But, as we are finding in so many places, WiFi was not very good and during the peak time there was none. There were a few permanent residents but they are in a different area and unless you take a walk you won’t even see them. The bathrooms and showers were clean. They have a beautiful tent area in the trees that made for good dog walking. We would visit again.
Rate cited is based on the monthly rate. I am very undecided about this park because it is full of conflicts for me. The owners and the staff are wonderful and they work so hard each day to maintain the park. Parts of it are so beautiful and then there is the part that is so terrible. There is a beautiful pond with geese and green manicured grass all around it. The bathrooms and showers are incredible. Each one is an individual bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. There are plenty of them and they are immaculate. The laundry is very small with just 3 washers and 3 dryers but the price is very reasonable. There a fantastic swimming pool that is enjoyed by children all day and evening. They have a great play area for the kids and a party pavilion. This park really caters to families on vacation and many of the RVs are there for the season with families coming when they can. There are quite a few permanent residents but their area is clean and neat and if you are not out walking, you wouldn’t even notice them. The road in is very narrow but we managed as no one was coming from the opposite direction. Once in the park, the roads are terrible. They are a mix of old broken paving and gravel. The sites are all gravel and not at all level. We had quite a time and never did get our RV leveled properly. But most of them are large with a grassy area, a table and a fire ring. Very few have trees for shade. We were told to use a water regulator as the water pressure was too high. That gave us very, very low pressure. The Wi-Fi did not work. When we arrived we were told that it might get fixed in a day or two. It was never fixed in the whole month we were there. We had TV with our antennae. I would go back as management works so hard to be constantly improving it and it is a great location for visiting the Lexington area.
We had no idea that the road into this campground would be so steep and windy with hairpin turns. The price of beauty I think. We had 50 amp power, water at our site and our phone and internet (both Verizon) worked. The site was nothing but dirt but our rig sat on asphalt and we did have a picnic table, a fire ring and a grill. We were glad we have a rug. It took some leveling but we managed to get settled and it was beautiful. There were few other campers near us; the campground was almost empty as it was a weekday. Most of the sites are very small and if it had been full we would have felt very cramped. I could see no evidence of camp hosts or park rangers. No one seems to clean these sites. We didn’t use the showers but they looked fair. We did enjoy the hiking trails that run near the campground. Because of the access and the size of our rig (38 ft fifth wheel) I don’t think I would come back. This place was definitely built for smaller campers.
This was one of our most favorite places in all of our travels. It is well maintained and absolutely gorgeous. Interior roads are in very good shape. The campsites are well maintained by the very friendly staff. Restrooms are attended to at least twice a day and are very clean. We were fortunate to have a full hook-up site as there are not too many of them. But all sites are beautiful. Our Internet worked only because we have an antenna booster. Our Verizon phones did not work at our site. We really enjoyed all of the hiking trails and the beauty of the lake. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Rate reflects Golden Age Passport discount and includes the online registration fee. This was our second visit to the park and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The park is gorgeous with a wonderful lake for boating and fishing. It is a shame that the infrastructure of the park is falling into such disrepair. There is a total absence of people working there. The fire rings are not cleaned out, the picnic tables need repair and the asphalt roads and site pads appear to be falling apart. The roads are full of pot holes and are narrow, but that still cannot take away from the natural beauty that is there to be enjoyed. We had water and 30 amp electric at our site and both worked well and our site was fairly level. Most of the sites have very small activity areas. In some of them, the picnic table and fire ring take up all the space available and you would be hard pressed to get your camp chairs around the fire ring. I used the showers each day as they were OK with plenty of hot water but not necessarily very clean. The office is not open much and the staff is lethargic at best. We did use the laundry facility which was very reasonably priced. We were in site no. 50 which was in the most popular area because there is direct access to the water for fishing or playing in the water. Some campers tied their small boats up right at their campsite. Our site had a very large activity area and was very private but with no view of the water. (There was a trail that led to the water just 20 feet away). Sites 40 to 48 are right on the water. If we were returning we would possibly stay at site 6 which is very quiet, private and has a great view of the water. We also like 53 as it has a view of the water and a little trail to a private beach area. The tent areas are the most beautiful I have ever seen and we walked those trails almost daily as they had awesome views of the lake. We enjoyed a week and would return.
I have mixed feelings about this park. It is lovely with a tidal creek and pond, marshland around, bridges and paths. The roads are paved and the pads are very level gravel. All is very neat and tidy. But the pads are VERY small, the picnic tables are not allowed on the grass and don’t fit in the small space next to the rig. It is in the way and we have to walk around it on the grass to get to and from the truck and it is difficult to open our storage compartment. I don’t think they thought about slides when they built this place, as the space is so narrow. There are few shade trees which makes satellite reception good. We didn’t try the cable. Wi-Fi is good most of the time but not all. Management was very friendly and helpful. Stores are quite a distance away. The location is convenient right off of I-10. I would come back for an overnighter.
I believe someone called this campground a Hidden Gem and that is exactly what it is. We planned about three days and just keep extending. By the time we leave it will be over a week. It is quiet and beautiful with great views of the lake. All the sites are excellent; not a bad one at all. Not all sites have water views but if not they have beautiful forest views. The sites are large with level paved pads, a fire ring, gravel patio area and a picnic table. Some of the picnic tables need help but we got a good one. We are in site #20 with a view of the lake across the road. We are on the back half of the loop and most people don't come this far so there is no one around us. About half the sites can be reserved and the rest are for walk-ins. Only 15, 16 and 17 seem to get reserved. The bathrooms need some help but they work. We have 50 amp power and good water. There is a dump station on the way out. Our Verizon phones and jet pack don’t work very well but sometimes they are fine. The Sugar Cane Trail goes through the park and is a wonderful walk in the woods. It is good for mountain biking also. The rate reflects the Golden Age discount. I would definitely return.
This is a lovely park and I don’t know why it isn’t filled up unless it is just the wrong season. It sits right along the freeway on the frontage road and is easy to get to. The woman in the office was very friendly when we arrived and let us select our own site. All of the sites are large cement pull-throughs with a patio although there is no picnic table. We have more than enough space and we have grass (and green mowed weeds that look nice). There are some big trees and some of the sites have smaller young trees. I don’t think they would interfere with satellite service. The laundry is clean and the price very fair. There are 6 or 8 large clean tiled private showers with a toilet and sink in them. Wi-Fi is TengoInternet, which I never like. We did not try the cable. There is a beautiful common room with tables, exercise equipment, ping pong, pool and books and games. There is no dog run but there is plenty of area for a good dog walk. They even provide the doggie bags. Use exit 397. I rated an nine because of the freeway noise. Other than that I think it is great. The permanent rigs are all clean and neat. I would definitely return.
We stayed here last year and decided to return again. Nothing has changed. The price was the same and reflects the Passport America discount. The park is basic but meets our one night needs. The pad is level and we didn’t need to unhitch. It is big and easy to navigate with all pull-through sites. There is no grass and very little gravel, but we do have a picnic table and there are a few trees. No cable so we used our antenna. The Wi-Fi worked just fine. We did not check out the bathrooms or the showers. I would return again for a simple overnight stay.
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is one of the most magical places I have ever been. The Saguaro and the Organ Pipe Cactus are amazingly large and old. This is the only place you can find the Organ Pipe Cactus. We had a beautiful site at the campground with a picnic table, patio area, and a level cement pad. All of the sites are pull-through. The roads are a bit tight but we have a 38 ft. RV and managed. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and taught us a lot. The trails are plentiful and well maintained. There were lovely places to walk your dog, programs at the amphitheater on the weekend, and our Verizon phones and WiFi worked but not real well. I can hardly wait to go back! Rate reflects Senior Pass.
This is a nice little RV park right on the Colorado River. Management was very friendly and accommodating. Each large site has a nice patio with a table and a fire pit/barbeque along with a small grassy area. All the roads and the pads are gravel. Ours was not level at all and took quite a bit of work to get us leveled out. We finally scooped up some of the gravel to build up the low side and then used blocks. The pool is nice and has a Jacuzzi. There are two laundry rooms with new machines, but they are a little pricey. They are currently remodeling the bathrooms, but the one I used was large and clean. There was only the one available when we visited. The Wi-Fi worked very well. They advertise a clubhouse, but it was closed. They allow dogs, but there really is not much of an area to walk them. The river area was very beautiful and well kept.
If you like funk and dirty old RV’s, then this is the park for you. There are many permanent residents and their rigs are old and unkept. The hook-ups were good and the view and access to the river are good. Those are about the only redeeming qualities. Oh, and good machines in the laundromat. Some of the roads are paved but most are very, very old paving that is pretty much gone. The only grass is where individuals have watered. No picnic tables. I didn’t use the showers but they looked old and basic. Our gravel pad was fairly level and plenty large. No Wi-Fi and no cable. The atmosphere of the whole place is rough and dirty. I would not return.
This park really grew on me. It is very, very large so I didn’t think that I would like it, but I did. It is very neat and tidy with paved roads, level concrete pads and grass with a picnic table. My only complaints were the size of the sites – they were short and close together, and the internet that they say they have. What they don’t say is that to use the internet, you must pay an additional $6 a day. There are nice dog runs, clean laundry that is fairly priced and very nice showers – large private rooms. Even the trash receptacles are thoughtfully located. The resort is beautiful with separate family and adult pools. We enjoyed a very good breakfast at the restaurant for only $4.50 each. It is not a buffet, but is cooked to order. I would return. I would have rated it higher but the internet was not free and the sites were very cramped. Rate is Passport America.
This is a great overnight stop with wide paved streets and level gravel sites. There are large pull-thrus and nice back in sites. There is no shade and no grass but they have a lovely covered patio area near the office for customer use. The laundry was clean and nice and there are two private bath/showers. Good cable and good Wi-Fi. Smith’s market is just outside the gate and very easy to walk to. We did not unhitch as the site was level and the store was close. Management was very friendly and accommodating. The only problem here is the address and actually finding the place. The address leads you to a driveway gate that is bolted closed. What you have to do is enter the Smith’s parking lot and go to the back. Not an easy entrance but it does work….after a short tour of the neighborhood. We did feel that the price was much more than the value.
This is a very nice park and a great place to base and see the National Parks. There are many shade trees on nice wide paved streets. (The trees made it almost impossible for us to use our Satellite TV but the cable was good enough for us.) Each pad is cement and level with a nice grassy area out your door. There is only one shower/restroom building for the whole park and the laundry is in this building also with the only trash receptacle near it. We were fortunate to be located very near this building. The laundry worked just fine. I never did check out the restrooms and showers. You have to pay more if you want a pull-thru so we had a right side back-in which is a little more difficult, but it worked. The cable and Wi-Fi were great. There is a grocery store within walking distance. There is no swimming pool. I would go back to this nice park.
The directions on ReserveAmerica take you to Oasis with a sign pointing down a dirt road to Painted Rocks. Do not take that road because it is about 20 miles long! Go back to the freeway and go to Levan and then go south on 28. We visited after Labor Day so there was no one at either gate to explain this to us. But I am so glad that we found Painted Rocks because it was awesome. All of the sites are very nice with water and 50 amp power. There is a nice dump station and convenient vault toilets. We stayed in site 12 and had a view of the lake. Most sites are level and large with a covered picnic table on a cement pad. The interior roads are wide and easy with a big rig. There are no showers, no trees, no laundry and no playground. But there is plenty of walking, hiking and fishing. The views are magnificent. Since it was late in the season we were the only ones there but I can imagine that in the summer on weekends especially it is very noisy when full.
We really loved our stay at Jordanelle State Park. The views are wonderful and with Park City right next door, there is even more to do besides what the park offers. Our pad was not at all level and in my walks, I didn’t see any that were better. Our site indicated that it was good for a 40 foot rig, but we had a very hard time fitting in. All pads and roads are paved and have a picnic table and a fire pit / barbeque. We had no grass and were glad we had a rug to prevent the dirt from being tracked in. No shade at our site. The showers were free and very clean. We had no sewer (dump station available) but the 30 amp electric and the water worked great. There is free Wi-Fi which we certainly appreciated. We loved Jordanelle and would visit again!
This is a pleasant place to stay with wide, level pads, green grass all around and nice open spaces for dog walking. The freeway noise was minimal. The interior roads are dirt and not very wide which made getting into our site a bit difficult. There are nice shade trees – we didn’t try our satellite so I don’t know if they would have interfered. The Wi-Fi worked very well. The laundry worked well and was reasonably priced. The bathrooms and showers that I used were very old, but seemed clean enough. I was glad it did not rain while we were there, because of the dirt roads.
Loved this stop! Village of Trees was a very nice stop for us. We were greeted at the office by very friendly staff and escorted to our site. The wide roads and our site were gravel. The pad was very level and we had a nice piece of grass, a shade tree and a picnic table. The sites are plenty wide for our 4 slides. I was pleasantly pleased with the WiFi as it is often so poor. At VofT it was excellent. We have satellite so I don’t know about the cable but the satellite worked well even with the trees. There was a pond for fishing and the park is also located right on the Snake River with a path leading to it so you can fish there also. While there was no enclosed dog area, they were very dog friendly and there was plenty of grassy area for dog walking. The laundry worked just fine with very reasonable prices. I didn’t use the showers but they looked clean. The only negative I can even think of would be a small amount of freeway traffic but other than that, this is a fantastic spot, well maintained and clean. I would certainly visit again.
Rock Canyon is a very small park with only 25 – 30 spaces. It sits right on the Yellowstone River with lovely views of the canyon. The interior roads and the pads are gravel with our pad being mostly level. There was plenty of room to maneuver to our site which was extremely narrow but there was plenty of room to park our truck behind our rig. There was a very small patch of nice grass outside our door and a picnic table. There are few shade trees – none at our site. The laundry and shower are very clean but there is only one shower and one washer/dryer. I went to a Laundromat. There is a nice public trail across the highway for walking or biking. The cable TV was very good and the internet worked on occasion which is pretty much par for the course. The water pressure is terrible in the morning when everyone is showering. Then it comes back.
This park is OK except for the dirt. Their gravel is pretty much gone and the grass is skimpy. Dust flies whenever someone drives by. It just is not very attractive at all. Our site was not very level. But the hook-ups work just fine and the internet is good on weekday mornings - very early. There is no cable and no swimming pool. There is a nice playground for children and the Fairmont Hot Springs is within walking distance. What I did like was the quiet and the views. The laundry was clean but expensive by our current standards. I didn't see the restrooms. I don't think I would go back. It was much too expensive for what we got.
Rate reflects a week's stay. We arrived and planned to stay 2 days and ended up staying a week. I really like this park. It is quiet, the management is very friendly, and there are large shade trees. The pads are mostly level and a little short but we managed just fine. There is always someone to guide you to your space. The pool is old and empty. The WiFi is one of the best we have experienced. We have a nice shade tree and a good table at our site. Note that there is no 50 amp service. There is a nice children's playground and the tent sites are the best I have ever seen with a fire ring, table and plastic chairs for relaxing. They also have great views. The town of Three Forks is nearby for groceries and a couple of good restaurants.
The management was poor. Upon arrival we had to go look for the manager in a run down mobile home where we couldn't get to the door because it was fenced off. The sites are long but very, very close together. Water, electric and sewer are poorly laid out. Dogs are left outside unattended. I tried to walk my dog but there were large, unattended aggressive dogs all over the place. I didn't go near the restrooms, and the wifi did not work. I would not return.
What a charming place this is. Large level sites in the trees. Deer all over the place. Walking trails to the river. Downside was train noise and no internet except in the office. The charm makes up for it. The showers are pay and we didn't use them. Water pressure is low. But I still would come back. Each site has so much privacy with a picnic table and great views.
Loved this park. Every space in it is beautiful with nice views. Lots of big trees for shade and a lovely river flowing past. There is a roped off area for swimming, and dogs love it too as we saw many swimming outside the roped off area. But be aware that there is no water and no sewer. They do have service to fill your water tank, and there is also a pump out. We were in our 38 foot 5th Wheel and it really was too close for us. I would not go back for that reason, but the tenters and those with smaller rigs do just fine. The woman at the gate greeted us in a very military fashion, listing off the rules and making us wait until exactly 2 pm before we could check in.
We stayed at Portland Fairview RV Park for just one night. What a beautiful large park. The grounds are really lovely and very well-tended. Almost all the spaces are pull-thru but they are very small. They are short and we had to park our truck next to our 5th wheel. There ended up being one foot between our slide-out and our truck. We didn’t realize that we were a few inches into the grass and were told to move to get it off the grass. We have only seen one other park that was tighter than this one. The WiFi is Tengonet and worked very well for us. Our pad was very level but the sewer hookup was too far away for us to be able to use it. The laundry was very good with plenty of machines. The bathrooms/showers are older but very clean. The only problem with the bathrooms were that they were just off the pool so the screaming children were in and out all the time plus if anyone used the water, the shower water got hot or cold, depending. The location is good but the highway noise was very bad. This was the first park to ask me the year and brand of rig I have when I called for reservations.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Richardson Park and Campground. Our site (#77), was nestled in the pines and absolutely gorgeous with a view to the open clearing behind us. The site was level and paved. There are great showers and restrooms. The showers are 50 cents for 5 minutes. There is a marina and a boat launch, an outdoor movie on Friday and Saturdays, and plenty of places for bike rides. Our phones didn’t work there, but our air card worked fine. All of the spaces are very different and wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would certainly return!
What a surprise this little gem was. Clean and friendly with flowers blooming everywhere and large shade trees. We have a picnic table on a small area of grass, a level gravel pad, paved drives, clean restrooms, and friendly people. We can't get the Wi-Fi at our space and the laundry is not handy but it is clean and nice. The only downside is the noise from the highway. I think the spaces in the back would be much quieter. There are mostly permanent residents but everything is neat and tidy. The area on the banks of the river is just beautiful and calls out for a visit on a warm evening. We would definitely return!
We certainly enjoyed our 4-day stay at Flag City RV Resort. The park is laid out very well with many pull-throughs for the traveler and cement pads that were very level. The pads and the spaces are very narrow and the surrounding area is ground cover, not grass which I certainly prefer. The bathrooms are spotless and very nice. The pool area looked nice but we didn't use it. There is a large area in the middle that is used for a dog run which is nice. The Internet did not work for us. We were told to go to the office to put the code in if it didn't work at our site....that still didn't work. The staff who checked us in acted as if we were interrupting her. The most unfriendly we have experienced in almost 4,000 miles. But I wouldn't let her keep me from returning. I would recommend Flag City.
I love this place! (The rate reflects a one week rate plus $10 for our dog.) We have traveled from South Carolina to Ca;California, and I think this is my favorite place not counting the Corp of Engineer parks. The spaces are large with grass and a cement patio. The pads are gravel and quite level. Only thing missing is a picnic table. I don't know why there are none, and I do miss that. The office is beautiful as is the pool area which is sheltered from the wind and very clean. There is a roar of noise from the freeway, but it did not bother us. The pull-through spaces are a little skinny and every other rig faces each other which would be nice for people traveling with friends. I prefer the back-in sites. Ask for a space facing the river. Even though it is usually dry, the view is nicer than the other side. Be aware that when you are trying to find your way in, it is very industrial - don't worry, you are almost there! I haven't used the showers but I did peak in and they looked wonderful! I will certainly come back if we are ever in this area again!
I wish I could post photos of the terrible condition of this park. I wish I had read the reviews before I visited. I wish I had never tried to use the 50 amp power connections. I wish I had not brought my dog. I wish I had sprayed for roaches as soon as I arrived. I made big mistakes when I decided to go to this dilapidated place. The power had no ground and blew out our converter, our microwave and our 42 inch TV. The non English speaking manager would not accept responsibility for the power problems and was rude on top of it all. The place is all weeds and broken everything, and there are roaches all over at night. The picnic tables are most all beyond use, and the water pressure the lowest I have ever seen. But we were lucky - our water worked. Many of them did not. All of the people we talked to there complained of power problems. We went out today and spent almost $900 to replace what was broken there, and still they didn't offer even a refund on our rent. Please, please do not go to this place no matter what!
