I have to agree with some of what the previous reviewer says, however, it didn't adversely affect our visit. It is a little Oasis on an otherwise desert lake. A very nice place to stop for the night. Other campgrounds in the area a seriously lacking and this is paradise in comparison so we weren't hyper-critical with the little things. We had electric and water and the dump station is conveniently located on the way out to the highway (I-15). Need a place to stay for the night and even put your feet in the lake: this might be it for you as well. Just be sure to make advance reservations.

This is basically an RV park. My rating is based on that fact. This park has everything you need for a night and more. Level, gravel sites with fire ring, table, and some have a bench swing. Very nicely groomed with some fun amenities. In the summer they have a little outdoor cafe with steaks grilled at night, and ice cream, and pancake breakfasts in the morning.

This is an RV park. As such, it is very nice for an overnight. With all the trees it would be nice in the summer. We are staying here during a rain storm in October. We've stayed in other parks in the area and this one is nicer for level, etc. I suppose it could be a little crowded at times, but it's an RV Park - not a national park. Right now we virtually have the place to ourselves. Tables at all sites; no fire pits. We have plenty of room for our 60 foot rig with slides.

I guess if you like camping in a parking lot this is fine. It's way overpriced for the location although the amenities are nice. Spaces are very small, concrete and lava rock, and your picnic table is right next to your neighbors sewer hookup - not appetizing for breakfast. It's very clean, has a playground, convenience store & gas fire pit/ramada area by the bathroom/laundry/shower building. The hotel and restaurants are beautiful and there is a shuttle to take you there. If traveling on the train to the Grand Canyon, this is a great place for temporary parking. The best thing about this park is that you can walk into town at night to all the restaurants & shops in historic Williams.

Beautiful dry camping in the desert among the dramatic cliffs of the Virgin River Canyon. Located 1/2 way between St. George and Mesquite. Be sure to have your AC tuned up and working well for this location in the hot times of the year. When the sun goes down is time to sit outside and enjoy the stars and gorgeous sunsets! Fire pits can be used if it's not too windy. Immaculate bathrooms - thanks to the great on-site hosts. Beautiful hiking and day use area on the river. Campground is located on a plateau above the river.

Dick's was the only show in town with the KOA closed for the season. We didn't want to tow our big rig down 10th Ave to the KOA anyway and Dick's is very conveniently just off the highway. Located walking distance from the river. Nice grassy sites. Quiet park. Some long term sites, but well kept and low key. We would stay here again while visiting relatives in Great Falls.

It is very packed, so be sure to make reservations. I loved the shuttle into Temple Square and the downtown area. Super friendly, helpful staff. It is not a traditional "camping" experience, more like a mobile home park, but if you want to see Salt Lake City, this is a safe home base. Yes, there's long term people on the outer edges of the park, but they are mostly summer visitors in nice coaches & trailers. With the number of employees all over the park cleaning, trimming and helping, we didn't feel a threat at all. We spent the extra money for a patio, swing and table. It was nice and gave us a little extra space.

We really enjoyed the solitude here. It was us, the host and 1 other trailer. But it was the end of the season. Located in the high desert area between Dillon & Lima at the mouth of the river. Right on the edge of the lake with wonderful sunrises and sunsets. It was quite windy so we didn't put out the awning. The host said it was not always that way but is frequently. If it's windy you may want to position your rig for shade and wind block. Great for people who love to fish or hunt...or those of us who are spectators.

The Best of Old Fashioned Camping - with electric! The hospitality people were amazingly friendly and yet non-intrusive. The campground was neat and clean. The outhouses - well, they were outhouses, odor and all. There are very nice flush toilets at the shower building. I do advise to camp across the road or a space or 2 away from outhouses. There are only 4 pull-through spaces which are really roomy. There are also several long back in spaces. All electric spaces are in Loop A. Go to www.recreation.gov to reserve space during the high season. October was nice weather and walk-in only. We got there Friday morning and were able to choose a pull-through space. Loop A filled up pretty good by Saturday morning. Perhaps being just 2.5 hours from the east Valley is the reason - it's close and easy. We specifically asked about this item: Contrary to a previous review, there is only 1 tag per vehicle. It goes in the tow vehicle or toad if you choose to leave the park. It does not stay with your trailer or tent. But this is true for all the National or State parks that I've been in. Also, being a National Forest, the stay limit is 14 days. As much as I almost hate to share it, it was a weekend in heaven. Relaxing, peaceful (with the sounds of children laughing in the background), quiet, dark & starry. Take the time to walk the .7 mile to see the Sinkhole area. You may even get lucky enough to see some of the many elk in the area. For those looking for the RV park feel with entertainment and stores within walking distance, this isn't it. There's a small local store a mile up the road in Forest Lakes and a great restaurant across the street, but that's about it for really close businesses. However, if it is a "camping" session that you seek, complete with fires in the fire pits at night, this place is tops in my book! You can buy firewood at the gate for $6 a bag and ice for $2. There is a dump station by the entrance as well as potable water if you need to fill up or re-fill during your stay. What more could you need? Take a good book and a comfy chair and plug in the coach for a truly rewarding weekend (or week if you can).

National Forest Service park with electric! Real camping (in comfort). Level sites in the heart of pine and Aspen trees. A super, quiet, restful get-away. Only 4 pull through sites long enough for our 57'.

The only reason we didn't give it a 10 was because of landscaping. It was very clean, neat & functional - just stark. We had a long (100') pull through site that accommodated both our rig & 5th wheel and pickup & cargo trailer. It actually was perfect for what it is. We were in the top area and took the shuttle to the main casino for dinner and play time. We had no problems, and the driver was prompt and friendly. We could see that people who know the park requested sites facing the river overlooking Casino Dr., but that didn't matter much to us. We stayed 1 night on the way home from MT and it worked great for some R&R. Walking distance to everything - even though the site was on quite a hill. Super quiet - we'd stay again.

Very clean, with well groomed landscaping. An onsite manager. We made a reservation, which the manager lost: so that was a glitch in the plans. Manager accommodated us onsite because of his error. Make a reservation and confirm it. Park was packed when we were here, so I don't think this is a drop-in location. Has level pull through sites with grassy areas and a table at every site. Close to the highway (1 mile) but far enough away that it is very quiet. Beautiful surrounding area: nice homes and farmland.

Wonderful relaxing place to park for the night or for a week. There was an Airstream group having a meet the weekend we were here and everyone was respectful and quiet. Nice heated shallow play pool for wading and cooling off. Peach trees offered a treat and a wonderful aroma. The cabins are cute and situated on the opposite side of the property so the RV's are not as visible. Great little store for minor items and morning coffee. Super nice people.
