The most recent reviews on this campground were 2008, and they were pretty bad. However, it is obvious that the owners have made a lot of improvements and are continuing to upgrade the park. No frills, but there are nice wide pullthroughs with full hookups, and we found it a nice place to stay overnight. It is about 45 minutes from Brice Canyon Notional Park, and Panguitch is a nice little town with plenty of restaurants and stores. The rate is unbelievably low. Base rate is $13 with $1 extra each for 50 amp, extra people, and pets. With tax our total was only about $18. Would definitely stay here again.

Regarding the other reviewer who gave it a low rating, I don't know where they were staying, but this place is great. Long, level sites, full hookups right where you want them, shade trees. No, they don't have cable TV or Wi-Fi, but you are staying in the GRAND CANYON. It is a little high priced, but I think well worth it. Yesterday there were huge elk right outside our door. It is a little difficult to get reservations so you need to make them well in advance. We would come back here in a heartbeat.

We stayed here with a WIT rally--seven motorhomes. It is a pretty nice park and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. However, I would not stay here again for a couple of reasons. No.1 highway noise. Other reviewers said this was not a problem and I wonder if they were staying in the same park. The park is very close to I-10 and the noise is very loud and constant. No.2 hookups. Water, electric and sewer are all on the very back of the lot. This was not a major problem for electric and water, but you need a 30+ foot sewer hose. We were here for four nights and I didn't hook up to the sewer. I used the public showers which were just across the street and we dumped when we left. No.3 location. We like to be close to stores, restaurants, etc and this park is about 10 miles from the main area of Casa Grande where there is just about everything you could want. It wasn't bad for a short stay, but I wouldn't want to be here for the winter. There are some very nice parks close to Casa Grande, but, in our case, they were all quite full this time of year and not interested in a rally. This park has 350 sites and I would guess only about 50 were occupied--and this is peak season. Overall it's not a bad park. They can't do anything about the traffic noise, but the sewer hookups and location are the major problems for me.

We came to Pahrump to attend an RV Rally at another RV park and decided to arrive two days early and try out Terrible's since we had heard many good things about it. We weren't disappointed and I would rate this as maybe the best park we have ever stayed at. The sites are large and level with a concrete pad for the rig, a concrete patio and parking space for your car. The hookups are perfectly located for a motorhome. Most sites are around a beautiful lake with all grass and a nice concrete walkway with trash containers and waste bag dispensers. Our dog loved it. I guess the only reason I am not giving it a 10 is that the Wi-Fi is very slow and they don't have cable TV, although our satellite worked fine. We liked it so much that we came back for three more days after our rally. The rate is for Passport America which you can use for three days. Then after leaving for a couple of days, you can use PA again. This park is a gem with everything we want (except fast Wi-Fi) and we can't wait to come back.

We stayed here for four days attending a Regional Rally of 76 motorhomes. The rate is discounted for our group. The park was very good for the rally because they had a large ballroom where we could have meetings, food functions, etc., and the staff did a great job in accommodating all of our functions. If our group had not been here, they would have been pretty much empty. The park is all paved and is basically a parking lot with hookups. Some of the sites are landscaped with trees and even gazebos and grills, and are quite large. However, the sites are not well designed with the electric, water and sewer on the far back of the site. That means you need a very long sewer hose. They advertise as being pet friendly, but there is really not any areas to walk your dog. No grass at all. They do have an area for dogs but it is not well designed or maintained. Overall, the park is not bad and we had a good time, but there are better parks in the area and we probably would not stay here again.

All interior roads are paved and the sites are level, hard packed gravel. They are a little close together, but not bad. There is a nice swimming pool and nice grassy areas, which our dog liked. This is a nice place to stay when visiting Las Vegas. I would rate it a 10 if they had free WiFi. It's $6.95 a day and works OK, but not great.

We stopped in Williams on our way to an RV Rally, to check out the RV parks, to see if we wanted to stay here for a month this summer. We stayed here because it is a Passport park and the rate reflects that including tax. This park is OK with level, pull through sites and all hookups except cable TV. They are quite busy because they are convenient to I-40 and are Passport. However, it is not a park we would want to stay in for more than a night or two. They have virtually no facilities like pool, picnic area, etc., and the ground is very rough with volcanic rock, very difficult to walk. Be careful coming in because the road at the entrance is very rough. Williams is at 7,000 feet and it was quite cold here in April. One morning was 28 degrees. We did find a much nicer park, and made a reservations for a month.

We stayed here one night traveling from Dallas to Arizona. It is a nice park for a short stay. The managers are very nice and helpful. The sites are pretty much sand with some grass in between. Large pull through sites with all hookups including cable TV. The Wifi worked very well. I normally would not stay at a KOA because they are usually not very nice and overpriced, but this is an exception. Would stay here again for a one night stop.

A nice park for a short stay. All the interior roads are paved and the sites are gravel. Mostly permanent residents and only a few pull thrus available for larger rigs--numbers 71, 72 and 73. These sites are about 40 foot wide with grass in between. A little tight squeeze getting in and out, but not bad. They told us the Wi-Fi probably wouldn't work on site 72 but we got it fine. We have a puppy and liked the nice, fenced in dog yard. Located about halfway between Midland and Odessa and we would stay here again.

This is a very nice campground, one of the nicest we have visited, but I can't give it as high a rating as others for the following reasons: 1. Most of the sites do not have sewer. 2. Many of the sites that do have sewer are in the trees and we could not get satellite. 3. The Wi-Fi is weak and sometimes we could not get connected at all. On the plus side, the park is very well laid out and every site has a concrete pad for the RV and a covered picnic table. There are beautiful views of the lake and boats available. The park is owned by the city of Grapevine and is very convenient to all kinds of commercial development. Unfortunately, our impression was tainted by the fact that it rained all day, every day that we were here, but I must say we would stay here again when we are in the area.

In spite of what the last reviewer said, we think this is one of the best campsites we have stayed at. They had everything we like: 50 amp, cable TV, Wi-Fi, level concrete pad sites, friendly people, etc. It is a relatively new campground and there are few trees and the grass is sparse. They are working on it and it will be better in the future. The $12.50 rate was the Passport discount, but $25/day and $105/week is still very good. I would have liked to stayed longer. We would definitely stay her again.

This is basically a mobile home park with a paved parking lot with RV hookups. They do have WiFi, but at a charge of $4.00 per day and it is quite slow. We have a small dog and there really isn't a place to walk pets except on the yards of the mobile homes. It is OK for one night, but we wouldn't want to stay for long.

This is a campgroung for ritired or active military and we were able to stay here because our granddaughter is active Air Force stationed at Fort Gordon in Augusta. We planned to stay a week and, after seeing the park, we decided to stay two weeks. This is one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at. Our site was located in section 2 with a beautiful view of the lake. About the only thing missing is Wi-Fi at the sites, but it is available in the lodge. The staff is super friendly and accommodating and the $12 senior rate is not bad either. The park is somewhat remote with the closest commercial development in Evans, about 15 miles away. Our granddaughter is going to Korea for a year but when she returns we will definitely come back here and stay for at least a couple of weeks.

This park is not too bad, but my main complaint is that the Wi-Fi barely worked. It is very remote and was nice and quiet except at 6:00 am when the garbage truck came to empty the dumpsters: about 20 feet from our site. The price is Passport America discount.

This is not too bad a campground, but I give it a low rating mainly because they are way, way overpriced. We stayed here three days because we were visiting friends in Fredericksburg and nothing else was available. Our son and his wife and three kids stayed two nights with us and we paid an extra $21 per night for them. We like to have Wi-Fi and, although they say they have it, I couldn't get on. The place is clean and the staff is very nice.

This is a terrible campground, but unfortunately, the only one near Simpsonville where we were visiting our son and his family. The whole place needs major work and it is definitely way, way overpriced. We sure wouldn't stay here if anything else were available nearby.

My wife says this is the worst campground we have ever stayed at and I think it is certainly one of the worst. It is mostly a trailer park with about six pull-through sites. The road coming in is a disaster and you wonder if you are going to be able to get out. They do have full hookups and they say they have Wi-Fi, but I was not able to get on line. There is a much nicer city park in Buena Vista (Maury Park) nearby which does not have 50 amp or sewer on some sites, but next time we will stay there.

One of the nicest Passport America parks we have used. We were only able to stay one night, but would like to come back for a longer stay. The sites are very nice with full hookups (50 amp) and free Wi-Fi. No shade, but not a problem for us. The owners and staff are super nice.

There were a lot of construction workers staying here and some had motorcycles which was a little noisy, but not too bad. The new owners are just great and Dick actually helped me with repairs on our jacks. He said he had been a truck mechanic for many years. We would definitely stay here again.

I agree that the configuration of the campground is a little unusual with some sites up on the hill away from the rest, but overall we liked it. We had a site right next to the office and Route 11 with full hookups and it was fine. A little traffic noise, but not too bad. Most of the sites are along a little stream in the trees and quite attractive, but those sites are 30 amp with no sewer. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and we would stay here again.

This is the second time we have stayed here and it is OK since there is nothing else available in the Salamanca area. You are pretty much sitting in the middle of a grassy field with no shade which was OK for us since it was cool weather. The rate is a little high since they do not have Wi-Fi or other amenities like a pool. We paid $29 per day plus tax (no tax if you pay cash) for a total of $31.32 with the seventh day free. We use the internet every day and it is a pain having to go into Salamanca to the library or Dunkin Donuts every day. If they had Wi-Fi we would definitely come back unless there were something better available. I don't know how they make a living from this campground since, during the time we were here, we were virtually the only ones and they don't have any permanent or seasonal campers.

This is a nice, convenient and well kept campground with most of the things that we want: Level, pull through sites, 50 amp, friendly people, convenient to interstate, but not noisy. If only they had WiFi it would be just about perfect for us. However, just down the road in Cuba they have a very nice little library with WiFi which is open until 8:30 on weekdays. Cuba is a nice small town with a large supermarket and a few restaurants--mostly fast food. Olean, a larger town with a mall, Walmart, and all the other stores is just about 15 miles west. If you go to Olean don't miss the Beef n Barrel restaurant. We stayed here for a week and will be returning for another week later to do some genealogy in the area. The rate is $26 for full hookups with the 7th day free. The campground is for sale now.

This is a nice campground with large, level sites. They do now have a nice heated pool and wi-fi available at a hotspot in the rec hall, but not at the sites. We had one of the only two pull through sites and there was 50 amp service, but no sewer. I don't think there are sewer connections on the other sites either. The owners are very friendly and are working to upgrade the facility. It rained the two days we were here, and we had problems with our motorhome, but the facility itself is quite nice. The $14 PA rate made it a real bargain.

We stayed here for four days and, unfortunately, it rained every day. The sites are nice and level with full, 50 amp, hookups, cable TV and WiFi which worked very well. Because of the rain, much of the area was muddy, but we still enjoyed it. The owner and her father-in-law were very friendly and helpful. We paid $25 Passport rate and they really like Passport members. Owner said that most of their people here now are Passport members. They don't accept Passport June 30 to Labor day, but she said that if someone calls and they have a space available during that time she will welcome them rather than sit with a empty site. Most Passport campgrounds in the New England area don't accept the discount during the summer because of the short season and I understand that. I would recommend this campground very highly because of the nice facilities and the very friendly staff.

We stayed here for a week while I attended a business meeting in Manchester. I stayed most of the week in the hotel and my wife and 13 year old granddaughter stayed in the motorhome. This is a very nice RV park with a lot of facilities for families including four pools. They are quite expensive at about $50 per day and we paid $258 for the week. The sites are nice with 50 amp, cable and good WiFi which is important to us. We normally wouldn't pay this much because we don't use the family oriented facilities, but, stayed here primarily because we had our granddaughter with us. Unfortunately, it rained every day we were here. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it very highly to anyone who has children and wants this type of family campground.

One of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at and we have been RVing for over 10 years in every state. The owners, Ann and Eddie Shea, are super friendly, especially Ann who gave us a big hug when we left. The only reason I didn't give a 10 is the lack of sewer hookups. We would certainly stay here again, although not for a long stay because of the lack of sewers.

We have stayed here before, the last time being in 2005, and they have improved somewhat by adding more sites with sewer and improving on the wi fi. They do charge $3.00 per day for each computer for wi fi and did charge $2.00 extra for a pull-thru site, which is unusual. Also the wi fi hookup is a little unusual in that you have to take your laptop in to the office and have them log on for you. This is a Passport America park and the regular rate was $38, with $19 Passport rate. The owners are very nice and we would probably stay here again.

This is not a bad campground, with large, level, grass sites, although a little high priced for what you get. We like to have Wi-Fi and, although they say they have it, it doesn't work, either at your site or at the office. When I asked the owner about the Wi-Fi he showed me a modem in the office, but didn't seem to have a clue about how it works or how to get on.

We found this campground in Trailer Life Directory and stayed here because it is about half the price of the KOA. We don't generally like KOA's because they are over priced and our experience is that they are not worth it. The ideal RV park for us is one with level, pull thru sites with full hookups including Wi-Fi and perhaps cable TV. We normally just stay a day or so and don't use the showers, rest rooms, pool, or other planned activities. Grangers is very nice with level, pull thru, grass sites. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked fine and the only thing they don't have is 50 amp sites. Our site didn't have sewer, but that was no problem for us. I don't think we would stay here for a week, but it is fine for one or two nights.

We stopped here for one night based on the reviews seen on this site and we were not disappointed. It is a very nice campground, level, grass, shady sites with full hookups including cable TV and Wi-Fi, which is strong and fast. There is a heated pool which we didn't use. The rate paid is based on extra for 50 amp and cable. The person checking us in was very pleasant and helpful. I think this would be a very nice place to stay for several days.

We called ahead and made a reservation under Passport America. When we arrived, we were informed that we could not get a 50 amp site with PA. The listing in the PA directory does not say that. Some PA parks charge $2.00 or $3.00 extra for 50 amp and we were willing to pay that, but were not given that option. They put us in a fairly nice site with large shade trees. Unfortunately, because of the trees, we couldn't get satellite TV and could only get one channel with the regular antenna. The WIFI does work very well. Most of the sites are large pull-thrus and it does seem like a nice park. The only problem for us is the 50 amp situation.

Nothing fancy, but a very nice park with friendly people. We have 40 foot motorhome and we almost never use park restrooms and showers so don't know about these. What we want is full hookups with 50 amp service, level sites, and WiFi that works good. This park has all of those. Cable TV would be nice for local news, but satellite worked fine. Only about 15 miles from Yellowstone and a good alternative to the very expensive parks in West Yellowstone (about $40-$50 per night). Would definitely stay here again.

We made a reservation here for arrival on a Saturday. On Friday we were delayed and called to change the reservation to arrive Monday. Because I called at 1:15pm and the policy is that cancellations must be made by 11:00am, they would not accommodate me and charged me one day, $47+ cancellation fee, even though I was not actually cancelling, but rather just delaying my arrival. I talked to the manager and he would not vary from the policy and was not very nice. I cancelled all of my reservation and found Valley View RV Park in Island Park with all the amenities that Grizzly has at $13 Passport America. Also, Valley View said that if I needed to change or cancel they would appreciate a call by 6:00pm the previous day. So it actually worked out better except I lost the $47. It probably is a very nice park, but make sure that if you want to change your arrival you call by 11:00am and not 11:01. I certainly wouldn't stay here in the future.

Very nice park with beautiful views all around. Very long pull thrus with plenty of room for 40 foot rig and car. Wifi works fine. Only thing missing is cable TV. Only one local channel comes in. A little pricey at $29 with Good Sam. Very windy when we were here, but the park can't control the weather.

I agree with the other reviews. One of the nicest parks we have stayed at. Certainly the longest pull thrus--120 ft. plus. Near RR tracks and I-90, but didn't hear traffic. WiFi worked great.

On the plus side, this is a nice park with clean, well maintained facilities. The sites are paved and level and, very important to us, the WiFi worked very well. At the $15 Passport America rate, it's a good buy. However, there are negatives. The pull through sites are somewhat short. Our 40' motorhome barely fit with almost no room for the tow car. There is no patio nor picnic table. The biggest negative is the traffic noise. We were in the first site next to the road and there is very heavy and noisy traffic, seemly all night. I spent two sleepless nights. If you do stay here, make sure it is in a site as far from the road as possible. After being awake most of the night, our last night here, I was just getting settled ready to sleep in when a very, very noisy lawn mower was started just outside out window at 7:45am. There is not much to do in Hermiston, but, if you stay here, drive the 30 miles to Pendleton and take the underground tour. This 1-1/2 hour tour is one of the most interesting we have ever taken and was one of the highlights of our entire summer. We might stay here again, but only if we could get a site in the back of the park.

I read the other reviews before coming here and agree that this is a very nice park, probably one of the nicest we have stayed at. I like the paved pull through sites with a separate paved parking area for tow car. We don't use a pool very often, but this one is very small and full of children every day. It would be nice if they had some hours set aside for adults only. There is plenty of services close by including Walmart. The train station for the Portland MAX trolley is about 10 minutes away and we took that to city center for the Saturday Market which was great. The "senior" fare is only $.85 for two hours and that is good on all public transit systems in the area. Regular fare is only $4.50 for all day. We would definitely come here again.

We stayed in back of the Elks club downtown. They also have another campground about 6 miles north of town. You must be a member of Elks. Nice, paved sites with 50 amp and water. We were able to access the WiFi from our rig. No sewer, but dump at the marina a few blocks away. A little noisy at night from nearby nightclub, but not too bad. Would stay here again.

This is a fairly nice RV park with large pull thru sites. Interior roads and sites are mostly dirt which wouldn't be too bad except the three days we were here it rained and we tracked in a lot of mud. Like a lot of RV parks we have stayed at, they advertise WiFi, but it only works in the office. They do have a very nice area in back of the office where you can sit and use the WiFi but it closes at 6pm. They say they are improving the WiFi, but if I come here again I would check other nearby RV parks to see if they have better service before coming here. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

We stayed here just one night and then moved to the Elks club in Florence. It was OK, but WiFi is important to us and, although they say they have it, it doesn't work unless you take your laptop to the office. It is about 5 miles south of Florence and very quiet. Otherwise not much to do.

This is a very nice RV park, but WiFi is important to us and, when we were there, it didn't work (they said it was the first time in three years). We were able to get WiFi in the parking lot of the lodge, but it was so slow, that it was virtually useless. Nearby Creator Lake is one of the most beautiful sights we have ever seen and Diamond Lake is also very pretty. We rented a pontoon boat and spent a very pleasant afternoon on the lake.

We stopped here because it is Passport America. There are about 30 sites and there were only two of us there. Nice, level, grass sites with full hookups, but no amenities. They don't have WiFi, which we need, but we only had to go about a block to the office parking lot to get it. We spent July 4th here and enjoyed it very much. We went to the "Demolition Derby" and watched the fireworks right outside our rig. We even had an air show each morning with an old double winged crop duster flying low right near our rig. Not much to do in Tulelake, but Klamath Falls, OR is just 20 miles away with WalMart and other stores and restaurants. We liked the peace and quiet so much we stayed a few extra days.

This is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed at. We are senior citizens, traveling in a 40' motorhome and what we look for is a nice, clean park with level sites, 50 amp, WiFi (very important), and friendly people. This park has all that and is very reasonable at $16 with Passport America ($26 without). PA is good for 3 days then 2 days at regular rate, then PA again. It was quit warm and windy when we were here, but we would stay again.

This is a large parking lot with hookups. It has all hookups, including Wi-Fi, but I think is overpriced at $50. Their ad in the Trailer Life directory offered third night free which made our three nights about $33 each. They are currently making a transition to KOA which may increase the fee more.

This is a very nice campground geared to families. Access to sites is a little tight with a large motorhome (ours is 40 foot). They have phone hookups at each site, but no WiFi. Some of the sites are not very level and I saw some motorhomes with the wheels off the ground. I thought the price was quite high at $55 plus tax, but this is Lake Tahoe, probably one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.

The price was quite high for what you get. $36.00 plus an extra $3.50 for our 11 year old granddaughter. They claim the sites are 70 feet long, but our 50 foot motorhome just barely fit with almost no room for our car. We stayed here mainly for the pool and it was filthy and cold and our granddaughter wouldn't get in. We wouldn't stay here again.

Small campground with mostly permanent sites-park models, etc. OK for one night. No 50amp service. We stayed here because it is Passport America and the cost was $9.00. Somewhat tight, but we were able to get a pullthru. The owner is very nice and there is a great mexican restaurant on the site run by his wife, who is from mexico. We stayed in a motorhome.

Very nice RV park--very clean and neat. Only two complaints: (1)On back-in sites the sewer hookup was on the very back of the site and requires a very long sewer hose. (2) The WIFI worked off and on, mostly off. I would stay here again, but only if the WIFI is improved.
