Another one of those parks that state "free" Wi-Fi. It is, but each day I am here I get a new password, and I can only hookup one device! Speed? I ran a test because it dragged. 145 ping, .014 download, 0.04 upload. This lowered my overall rating. But it is free. The park overall is very nice with roomy sites. Grassy areas where the bench is. Level gravel sites and roads. My GPS took me here with no problems. Rate is total with Good Sam discount. Unfortunately, the tax washes out the discount. I would stay here again.
Park itself is great. It is very large with lots of recreation, but..... $38 per night plus an $8 per vehicle, rv and tow, entrance charge for a total of $54 per night makes this a very expensive campground. But that's not all of it. Wifi is non-existent and water pressure was so low I switched on my pump.
The Good: Beautiful setting. Large, long, level pull throughs. Nice large off-leash park. The Bad: Dirt, dirt and more dirt. Very dusty. I hate parks that advertise free WiFi that are almost useless. Why should the wifi be useless when I pay $70 per night! The WiFi actually disconnected while I was writing this review. Download was less then 0.5mb. Price includes Good Sam discount. Would try different parks when I return to area.
To give this campground a higher rating based on the location and being the only CG would not be fair to good campgrounds. This was doable at best. Very sandy, red, and gets in everything. Wifi was spotty and slow when you could use it. Verizon data was non-existent. Voice/text were OK. Price was high for what you get. My 45' RV was able to negotiate the roads and site.
Overall, this is a very nice park and well maintained. A grassy, fenced dog area with doggie bags is very nice and clean. Site is gravel as is the whole park. Not a dusty gravel. But, WiFi was slow and was shut down for a day by provider. Claimed someone was downloading illegally. Not sure what that meant. Had problems with 50 amp service. Worker claimed the park was built 30 years ago for RVs with one a/c unit. Mine has 3 a/c's plus it is all electric so generator kicked on when voltage dropped very low (105). I would come back.
I have stayed here several times while visiting my son and his family, so overall, it's a good campground, BUT, because it is a dusty gravel and you tend to track it in AND the Wi-Fi is TengoInternet, I have downgraded my rating. Verizon is strong, but if you advertise Wi-Fi, let everyone know it will allow some surfing and checking email, it won't allow much more before it strangles the speed to useless. Based on these two items, I won't stay here again.
Near the highway and that's the highlight of it. Only stayed one night but it is cramped with barely enough room to extend my slides without hitting my neighbors awning. If sat TV is required, ask for front sites. Current road construction makes leaving the park and getting back on the highway very difficult. Must drive several miles out of the way to make a u turn in Walmart or go one exit west. Dirt and gravel with some grass in between.
Just a very short walk to the French Quarter and Bourbon St. High walled with security vehicle AND pedestrian gates. No amenities at most sites. Very well maintained. Paver bricks for paved areas. Good Wi-Fi and Verizon.
A 10? From first impressions you would probably say 10 is correct. Now stay here. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Had a bad circuit breaker and it was fixed within minutes of me notifying the office. Paved access roads and sites; grass in between. But…. Sites are very narrow with trees between sites on the little grass there is. Barely put out slides with trees next to unit. Awning cannot be put out. No patio or picnic benches. No place to put them. Daily rentals are put as far from the water as possible. A very large parking lot for RV’s with small strips of grass between each unit. Verizon barely works. Wi-fi extremely slow and drops out often. Only dumpsters are at the entrance.
Very large campground on the Guadalupe River, which is but a short walk from the main camping areas. Appears to be maintained, clean with level sites. Had a problem with the electric (open ground) that was repaired almost immediately. Long term drought (river was almost nonexistent) caused lots of dust. Grass was dead. Would come back.
I found this campground convenient for us as we were visiting with friends who live here. Is it a great park? No, but it is a very nice park. Clean and well taken care of, staff very helpful and friendly, right off the highway, and can walk to several restaurants in town. As far as a view of the temple, it's probably one of the few spots where you can't see it.
Park was very neat & clean and peaceful. Everything is in very good shape. "Lakeside" sites should be correctly named "Lake view". You are about 30 feet up and look through trees to see the lake. If satellite TV is required, check with office. Most sites are tree covered.
One of the nicest parks I have ever visited. Looks older but definitely well kept. Several people were always trimming, cutting, cleaning, etc. If you are a dog person, when we stayed here almost everyone I saw was walking a dog or two. Paved interior roads, pads and patios. Well landscaped and maintained. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Wi-Fi ok. Satellite friendly and good Verizon signal. The only things that keep it from a 10 are: utilities too close to the pad, sites just long enough for a 45', barely enough room for my toad alongside the RV. Maybe I nitpick.
What a surprise. After all, the only thing around is the Craters of the Moon Park and the EBR-I Atomic Museum. Literally, the middle of nowhere, but, easy in and out, very wide space between sites, bench, bbq, garbage cans conveniently located. Clean and well kept. Personnel very helpful and friendly. Did not do breakfast, but others have said it was good.
A short walk from the campground brings you to one of the most awe inspiring sights I have ever viewed. This is after seeing Alaska last year! Incredible. I had a slight difficulty getting into my pull thru site. I have a 45 foot long rig and it takes real careful driving to get through the park. No paving except the entrance road. Then it is dirt. Very helpful, friendly staff to get you situated. Would highly recommend.
I made a statement in a previous review that I do not give 10's unless they have paved sites. In this case, if they had paved it, it would ruin the rustic setting along the Snake River. Tall trees blocked our satellite, but with the scenery around us, both in and out of the park, there was certainly enough beauty to be seen that TV was not important. I was in an interior very long pull through site. Everything was right. You certainly get the rustic Western feel here.
The site they gave us we barely fit in. Car had to be parked alongside. All dirt roads, sites, patio. Just a bench. Too dusty to sit outside. Some construction going on upwind which blew more sand and dirt our way. One dumpster by entrance for the whole campground. At the rate I paid, I would expect a lot more. I would probably not stay here again.
We stayed here about a week. Lots of concrete. Very sanitized campground with little personality. Easy in and out access right up to the site. The site has a concrete patio. Period. My steps opened over the grass. Utilities where you want them. Two dumpsters. Very large dog park. Staff very personable.
A campground must be above and beyond to get a 10 from me, and this is one of them. The table, bbq and trash receptacle on site were very nice touches. Long, easy to get into sites with utilities at the right spot, all make this park a great place to stay. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
Right off of I-70. Easy on/off and still very quiet. Looks like they are getting it ready for the season. I was there when they were spraying but did not detect any odor. Probably a vegetation killer as all sites were gravel with weeds growing. I have a 45 foot class A. Site was very level. Large patio with bench and fire ring.
I can't give it a 10 without having paved sites and roads, but a 9.8 is right. Was here through the Labor Day weekend, and I still had lots of room. Great destination resort as well as a good base to tour from. One of the best campgrounds I ever stayed at.
Site are almost level, but with my 45' my front step was left about 18" in the air. I also got a lecture about my dog even though the RV behind me, that had 2 little dogs, barked all the time. Came here after Sturgis Bike Rally, as I am not into bikes. Would I come back to this campground? Doubt it. Would I come back to Sturgis? No. Saw it all in less than 2 hours.
Very nice, well maintained campground located in town. A short walk to the Museum, and bus stops for Cody tour. Could not be more helpful. No 10 due to gravel roads and sites. Narrow strip of nice grass between rigs. Even though they don't tell you when you call for reservation, OR checking in, it is a CASH ONLY campground. This means NO credit cards!
After staying at many RV parks on this trip, we booked a spot here. It turned out to be one of the most beautiful and peaceful parks we have ever stayed in. Not sure what the complaint was, but the reception staff were very friendly. My site was as close to the road as you can get in a very spacious site. I could hardly hear anything. Very satellite friendly. Had a nice view of the lake. I don't give a ten unless it has all of the above and paved roads and site. This has gravel. But that's me.
What a nice place. See the reviews below. I don't know what else to say other than it is beautiful. I prefer paved site and access roads, this is gravel. Lot's of beautiful grass on each site with picnic table. Hookups are where they should be. It's satellite friendly with great WiFi. What other great things can I say?
Well kept park. Has a nice covered deck and bbq at each site. Nice shady sites. Lots of space between sites although the pull in part is narrow. My 45' Class A fit right up to the deck. Would definitely stay here again.
Very narrow sites. Small fence separated our site from the next. Almost could not extend our bedroom slide. Heavily treed, therefore not satellite friendly. Wi-Fi usable. Very flat but dusty. Family oriented.
I called ahead and made reservations for a full hookup with 50 amp service. They gave me a water and poor 30 amp site that was not close to level. When I tried to level, I ended up with my bottom step almost 2 feet up. I had to lift my Rottweiler up and carry him down off the steps. Sites had overgrown weeds and were poorly maintained. I moved to another site that I barely had room to extend my slides. Employees were courteous and as helpful as they could be under the circumstance. Unless other campgrounds were not available, I would not stay here again.
We stayed over Memorial day weekend and found it a very pleasant experience. Many permanent, but most were well kept. Friendly staff. Had a breaker problem and was fixed within 30 minutes. Pleasing to the eye.
We were visiting friends in the area and found this campground very convenient. Had Wi-Fi that was very good. Employees very friendly and helpful. Flattest campground we we've stayed at with great satellite reception. Pull-through sites long enough that our 45-footer did not jut into the access roads. But access roads were gravel and very dusty. Would stay here again.
We are currently here. Sites are spacious and there are long pull throughs. Utilities where they should be, in the middle. The gravel is dusty but otherwise a very nice campground. We have been in several KOA's, but this is above the rest. I would come back here if in the area.
Would I stay again? Maybe. All sites are gravel with grass strips between sites. Not very big sites and not all have sewer. I have a 45' class a and most sites would be impossible for me. Lots of trees = poor sat reception, but who comes here to watch tv. No one, since cable is not available either.
All sites are side by side so you better know the people you will be sharing the less than 10 feet between sites. Limited 50amp is $10 more than 30 amp! Every site in the main area is a pull thru, no matter which direction you come in. This is basically an RV parking lot for people who come to the park.
We enjoyed this park for two days. Very shady. Our 45' rig had no problem with the large, level sites. Has a dog run and is pet friendly in all aspects. Dark at night for walking pets, but we would still use it for an overnight or two.
Although it allows pets, there is no adequate place to walk them. You actually have to go outside the entrance to an open field. You must walk pets on paved access roads. Sites are very short. I have a 45 that barely fit. Excellent hookups, but sites are also narrow, as well as short.
