Our campsite was a back-in site that gave us a beautiful view out our back window over parts of Colorado Springs. Beautiful campsites, great facilities - I have nothing but praise for this Colorado State Park. Some of the spots may be too short for a bigger unit so just plan for that.
This is a federal campground so it has all of the amenities normally offered by such. The park is clean and many (most) sites have a beautiful view of the lake. We stay here when visiting our daughter and family in Manhattan and it serves as a great home base. If it had full hook-ups we would stay longer, but not complaining. We prefer this over the state park on the other side of the dam hands down.
For all of the reasons already stated this is a beautiful park and a great place to stay as a home base to see Mesa Verde National Park. What is not spelled out is that this campground is at the top of a mountain. The road is good getting up there, but it is a mountain road with switchbacks and wonderful views from a mountain road. My point is that if you are going to use this as a base from which to visit the area - Durango in one direction and Arches National Park in another, you may want to find a more 'convenient' spot. But for camping with nature with the benefit of full hook-ups, this is your place. I gave it a 9 because of a less-than-friendly know-it-all Aramark clerk at check-in. Ignore her if you get her and have a great camping experience.
Nice campground in the heart of Door County. We had a full-hook up site that was level and backed up to a golf course, giving us a peaceful view. It was centrally located to things to do. The campground was clean and the staff friendly. You need to be careful navigating into your site as there are trees close to the road. There is also a big overhang on the main building that you need to swing wide to miss. We saw it and had no problem but judging by the fact that the corner of the building looked banged up I am guessing not everyone spots it in time. They should paint it yellow or at least warn everyone coming in. Overall, this was a very nice park and we would stay here again.
While this was one of the few campgrounds close to Milwaukee, it was not in very good shape. The road to get from the paved county road to the park was terrible. Sites were tight and we were very fortunate to not have someone occupying the site directly across from us or we would have had a hard time getting out of our site. With that said, it is still worth staying at if you need a base from which to visit Milwaukee. It would not be my choice to go camping, but is workable at a place to park your unit and visit the area.
I give this a 9 when compared to other places in the area. It was a nice campground, a little cramped, but easy enough to get in to and out of our site. It is convenient to everything in the area, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was even grass on our site, the only grass I saw in Wyoming. Full hook ups with cable. Not sure about Wi-Fi as I used my cellular service. While in Cody we took a ride to compare this campground to others we passed up. Let's just say it re-affirmed that we chose the right place to stay and would definitely stay at this campground again. While in Cody hit the rodeo and museum. The staff here recommends the cowboy dinner theater, but if you want the best entertainment, go to the Dan Miller Cowboy review downtown instead. The band and show were great.
I have to give this campground a 2 because it did provide us with a place to stay and full hook-ups; but other than that, there is not much good to say about this place. We were coming from the west and did not want to stop in Buffalo for the night as planned, figuring we could go another hour. We should have stopped in Buffalo. Cramped, dirty, dusty and loud. We did not even unhook in case we had to make a hasty exit in the night. Find a Wal-Mart if you can or stay in Buffalo. P.S. Cash only - which should tell you something.
We stayed here 19 years ago and it is still a great campground worth the extra money that you might pay to stay here. It has full services, including cable, and is a beautiful RV Park. It is close to everything you might want to see in the Black Hills. We will go back here; hopefully it is not another 19 years before we make it back.
This park is not cheap to stay at, but it is worth the extra money that you will pay to do so. First class accommodations throughout, full services include full hook-up with cable and Wi-Fi (although I used my cell card and cannot attest to how good or bad that was). Very helpful staff; professional all the way around. You are literally within walking distance of the West entrance to Yellowstone; this was an excellent base from which to see all of the sites. We would definitely go back here should we ever make it back to this area from the Midwest.
This is the first campground you run in to as you come in to Casper from the east. We were told it is just one year old. As such, trees and things like that are all new and growing. There is no grass (astroturf at each site to make up for it.) But it was a good place to stay for the night. For the price you got full hook-ups, free cable and free Wi-Fi (although we could never make the connection and used our cellular connection instead). The staff was very friendly and helpful and getting in to our site was pretty easy. We would stay here again if we ever find ourselves in Casper again.
We camped here on our way to Yellowstone. It was about three miles off the Interstate so we had to make an effort to get here, but it was well worth the effort. It was a spacious, beautiful little campground with cement pads to park on; easy to level. There are no water hookups, but the fill station was easy to get to right on your way in the park. We had a small mechanical problem and the host (actually a county employee) was more than helpful. The alternative campground at this exit is a KOA on the Interstate. Do yourself a favor and save your money - go north by about three miles and stay here instead. I am sure it is far more quiet and peaceful.
