Third time I've stayed here in the past two years. It's still ok. Clean and fairly secure. Maintained well, and the staff is mostly friendly, but not too helpful. Nice pool, hot tub and laundry. Every time we come, there are new "rules" though. This time it's that you have to pay the park $25 to wash your own rig. They claim it's due to the water shortage, yet many of their water hose hook ups leak constantly. Figure that one out. Dog runs are tiny, and the internet here REALLY IS TERRIBLE. It's "TengoInternet" and very, VERY slow. For $40 bucks a night you'd think a big place like this would have good internet service. Although the park is secure, the surrounding area has gone down the tubes since we were here last. Lots of beggars, whackos, and hookers out on Nellis Blvd. LOTS of sirens. Not the park's fault, just info so you'll be aware. Wal-Mart close, as is Sam's Town casino/resort. Strip is 6 miles but we don't go down there much. McCarran airport is about 6 miles also. Like I said, still an ok place to stay, but I might look around for a better deal when we head to LV again.
Nice place. Quiet and pretty, especially considering this part of Oregon is mostly desert type. Nestled in the center of a 6k acre cattle ranch, it's backed by timbered mountains 10 miles from Lakeview. Sites are level gravel, as is the road in off the highway. Road is a bit dusty and about a mile in, but worth the effort. Lots of trees and a large grass center area. Small laundry and showers. Ice. Water, power and sewer all good. Satellite reception and Wi-Fi good also. The little lake was very little due to drought conditions. You can hike the ranch roads and mingle with the cattle and antelope. Thought they're a bit pricy considering the limited amenities tho, such as no pool etc. Park Host friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay here again. Stayed 3 nights.
Nice park owned by a casino 5 miles out of Pendleton. Quiet, clean and well-kept. One of the easiest to get in and out of I've seen. Sites are level asphalt as are the roads. Lots of grass and small to medium trees around perimeter. Water, power, Wi-Fi and satellite reception all very good. Mini-mart and fuel nearby. Large Casino/Hotel has several restaurants, but any shopping (Wal-Mart) is about 8 miles into town. Would have given it a 10, but surrounding area is not very athestic to look at. If you've ever been to S/E Oregon you know what I mean: just not much to see or do here unless you're a gambler. Just Ag and dry rolling hills. Did see people with boats on trailers, so must be a lake nearby somewhere? We'd defintely stay again passing through.
Decent park in a valley between two mountains on the I 90 corridor. Pretty with lots of grass and a creek. Gravel roads and sites, all level. Lots of trees but shade depends on the site. Satellite reception fair to bad depending on the site. Wi Fi (DSL) comes and goes also so it's not dependable if that's important to you. Water, electric and sewer all good. Eight miles from CDA so you have to drive for ALL shopping. One very good and popular restaurant just down the street...Wolf Lodge Steakhouse. Highway noise from I 90 moderate to heavy. Very close to lake CDA. Lots of fishing/boating close by. CDA is a very picturesque town with lots of restaurants and shopping. Silverwood Amusement park is about 20 miles north and Spokane is 30 miles west. Manager nice and helpful and everything is well kept, but I thought their price here is a bit high considering the distance from town and the Wi-Fi/Satellite TV situation. I'd come here again for sure, but I might shop around for a place a little closer to CDA first. Oh yeah...fuel prices in CDA are high (they gouge the tourists). We stayed ten days
Nice park. Sites level gravel with grass in between. Well cared for and clean. Back-in area has lots of trees. Good for shade, bad for satellite. Pull-through area is more open. Water good, but pressure a bit low. Electric good, as is the sewer hook ups and the cable TV. Wi-Fi yes, but not good. VERY slow and intermitent. (Office said they haven't upgraded their server and it's overloaded most of the time). Kallispell is about 3 miles away and has everything you need for shopping. This park has a nice little creek with a safe "swimmin' hole" for the kids and is set up as such. This park is about 30 minute drive to West Glacier Nat'l Park entrance. It's a must see. Particularly the "Goiing to the Sun Road" up to Logan Pass. Use the shuttle...must easier than driving your own car. We parked at "Avalanche" village and caught the shuttle from there. It was awesome. We stayed a week. Would definitely come back to this park again. Only reason I knocked it down a bit was the bad Wi-Fi.
Nice park. Big place. Lots of grass and trees. Gravel sites all level with room between each. Easy in-easy out. Water, sewer, electric all good. Everything clean and well kept up. Management nice and very helpful. On the edge of town so no shopping within walking distance unless you count several close by mini-marts, but Buffalo is not a big town so it's not far for groceries and ACE Hardware. Good steakhouse (Winchester) right across the street. Closest Wal-Mart is 30 miles in Sheridan. Lots of deer and wild turkey in the park. Great fishing, boating, M/C riding, and OHV areas close by. Big Horn mountains are beautiful and right here. Tons of old west history close. Little Big Horn Battlefield is 90 minutes away as is Devil's tower. Yellowstone 4 hours hours one way and Mt. Rushmore 4 hours the other way. We like small towns so we REALLY liked Buffalo. Be sure and check out the live blue grass jam on Thursday nights at the Occidental Saloon, but be there by 5 pm or you won't get a seat, it's very popular. All in all a great place to stay as long as you don't have to have a big city. Will definitely come back. Stayed here a month so we could spend some time in the area. P.S Hwy 16 is very pretty and the best route in from the West with an RV, but I recommend you take a drive on 14 and 14A with your toad or bike. Both are gorgeous but steep with curves.
Third year here. The only thing that keeps it from five stars is the dumpsters are always full to overflowing, and I have to call the office about them. Small safe RV park located in the center of town adjacent to the Motel. It's within walking distance of restaurant, grocery stores, coffee houses, bars, nice big city park, Ace Hardware, etc. Walmart is two miles, as is Home Depot. Easy day trips to Zion and Bryce. North Rim of GC is a bit far for a day trip though. Vegas is 2.5 hours away. Pools and spas, gym, etc., all are part of the Motel and you can use them. Fairly easy access off of both Main St and 100 West. Sites are level gravel with enough room, trees and picnic tables in between. Good water, power and sewer. Some traffic noise but not too bad. No on-site bathrooms or showers. Good fishing an hour or so away. Beautiful area. We come every June for the Utah Games and the Groovefest music festival. Stay a month. Big "Shakespeare" theater company here. We love it, particularly in late May and June. NOTE: The western most space, (last one) gets way too much sun.
HOT!! Some shade but not much. Park has both permanent and temp areas. The temp area is clean and well cared for. Can't say as much for the permanent resident area. Lots of old trailers and junk on the back half. Located 5 miles from the casinos in Laughlin. Staff is friendly and helpful. Sites are level dirt/gravel and fairly wide. Roads paved. Bluff sites are the nicest view of river and casino lights. Pool and restrooms/showers/laundry clean. Dog run is kept clean. New office and dog run are a good distance from the entrance. The old office at the entrance has been converted to a mini-mart. Cable TV, power and water are good but the water is not too good to drink. Typical of all desert water: very hard with alaki. Wi-Fi free but slow. Nice little walking trail around the perimeter. Gym is just OK, as is clubhouse. Definitely NOT a summer location though. We stayed two nights passing through and were trapped in our 5th wheel by the heat. Evenings are nice however (after sunset). We would stop here again, but in cooler weather.
Older park split into two separate areas. THE GOOD: The grounds are kept well. Facilities and pool clean. Sites are shaded and fairly level gravel. Premium pull-through sites have patio and grass. Paved roads. Staff helpful and courteous. Fifteen minutes from Sea World, the harbor, the beaches and La Jolla. Water and power are good and pedestal close. Very good cable TV. Freeway access is good at the West end (Lake Murray Blvd), but very bad at the East end (Alvarado Rd exit-avoid this exit if you're a big rig) THE BAD: Freeway noise is hideous. RV's are packed in at every angle. Tight squeeze for big rigs if you're not in a pull-through. Lots of permanent residents with old rigs and junk piled up around them. No designated pet area, altho they do provide clean up bags. We were told by other folks not to leave anything unlocked when away from rig. Prices for premium sites way to high for this old park. You have to pay extra for Tengo internet access, which should have been included at premium price. If we come to San Diego again, we'll look around for another park.
UPSIDE: Very nice winter park. Right where CA, AZ, and Mexico come together. Lots of ag land and plenty of water so it's green. Great winter weather-70s & 80s. Very wide spaces with concrete patios. Parking good. Best dog park I've ever seen..3 acres of grass. Lots of activities. A beer/wine cantina which serves pizza and burgers on different nights during the season. Huge pool and large hot tub. Propane services and RV wash guys come through park weekly. Major snowbird park with an 18 hole Golf course that winds through the park. Well maintained and very clean. Yuma, city of 90k is about six miles away with lots of shopping available, and several large casinos very close. 2.5 hrs from San Diego and 3.5 from Phoenix. Small town of Algadones, MX is 10 minutes for good Rx and DDS( and tequila) and it's safe if you stay in the main shopping or medical areas. Big secure parking lot on the US side and you walk in through the border gate. Yuma has fair size airport and US Marine training base. Lots of stuff to do in Yuma if you look for it. Lots of OHV trails and dunes close by. Shooting and fishing in Colo river which runs right through the park. Couple of lakes about 20 miles away. We stayed the winter here. If you pay for an annual spot, it's much cheaper per month, but you have to stay here at least 4 mos to break even. The advantage is you can come and go at your leisure throughout the year, and you can do to your site whatever you want, i.e. larger patio w/brick, storage shed, etc. We're coming back next winter for sure. Rig can be no older than ten years. DOWNSIDE: Very hot and humid in Jul/Aug. Can get very windy at times (but not for days on end). Sewer hookups can be 20 feet away depending on your site and rig. Monthly is pricey, but hey, you get what you pay for. Golf carts have right of way everywhere. Streets are a bit narrow but I had no trouble backing in 40' rig (they help you). The park is split into pet and non-pet areas. Fills up fast. Make reservations way early for winter, particularly for pet area.
Nice CG for late fall, early spring, or winter stay. Well cared for. Clean restrooms and showers, and kept very neat. Very pretty desert scenery. Water and 50 amp service but no sewer, however, two dump station lanes. Reservations can be made on line at Maricopacountyparks.org (camping/RV). Be sure to check the map on the web site, read the description of each site, and look at the sun orientation for that site. Cites are all paved but not all sites are level with some NOT level at all so check it out good. Several pull-through sites but most are easy back in. Keep your pet out of the rough as there are some mean cactus thorns everywhere. Nice playground for kids. Hiking trails and horse riding. Good shopping within 3 miles. We'd definitely stay here again. If you stay longer than 14 days you have to change sites. No breaks on camping fees. One drawback, motorcycles are considered a second vehicle which you have to pay $6.00 per day for. Rather steep I thought. Your choice on whether to mention you have one.
First the good. Park is very clean and well maintained with 2 nice pools, hot tub, and great weather. Gated and secure. Staff friendly and helpful. Pet friendly but no designated pet areas (supposed to be coming). Urban park with lots of shopping and RV repair close by. Sites are gravel and level. Some easy to get into and some not so easy. Many RV parks along this street. Be aware though: if you are looking for a fun "social RV setting", look elsewhere. This park is mostly park models with RV's stuck in wherever there is an open space. They are slowly phasing out RVs. Average age here is 70+ returning sno-birds with golf carts who all know each other, so, not a lot of interaction with younger (55+) temporary RVers. Very quiet. Don't hardly ever see anyone out, but that may change as more "birds" show up. Also, they do not go by what PA says in their book, price wise. They charge more, so call for price. Seemed a little like "bait and switch" to me, but to be fair, their monthly fees were the most reasonable in the area. We stayed a week. Wi-Fi was very slow and intermittent. Nice park, just not our thing socially. While we were here, we took two days and checked out most of the parks here and in Apache Junction. With the exception of some being maintained better that others, they were all pretty much the same. Lots of elderly folks, sno-birds, golf carts, and LOTS of park model sales. That seems to be the theme here.
Passport America park rate for 7 days. Smaller park but nice and well maintained. Some permanent residents and snow-birds from Nov on. Some months electric is extra. Gravel sites, level. Plenty of room. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy access. Not much shade though. Pool, hot tub, laundry. Desert hiking trails but keep an eye out for snakes. Nice catch and release fishing pond on site with big bass, flatheads and blue-gill. Some distant train noise, but it didn't bother us. Benson is a small town but has a golf course and Walmart Superstore. Close to lots of Old West history, Tombstone, Bisby, etc. Camped for 3 nights. We'd stay here again in spring, fall, or winter. Summer would be brutal with no shade.
Nice park very close to Table Rock lake. Four miles from Branson and Branson Landing. Sites are all concrete and level. Access is easy. Site spacing is fair to good. Water, sewer and elect. all good. Operators are friendly and helpful Good Laundry room. Ice at office. Shopping access is good BUT!, stay away from the Wal-Mart Super Center, Home Depot, etc on Branson Parkway(3mi). ALL the stores in that shopping center charge a 5% tiff ON TOP of 9% sales tax. Found that out the hard way when I looked at my receipt and saw 14% worth of taxes. Anyway, lot's to do here, and everything is fairly close. Would definitely stay here again.
Small park, 13 sites at the West end of JC right off I-70. Clean and well cared for. Some trees and tables at each site. Much more convenient than where we camped at Milford Lake in July. Camp host is nice girl, friendly and helpful. Sites are asphalt with small grass area at each site. Some highway noise but not bad. Both pull through and back in sites. A bit tight getting through but I did it in my 40 ft fiver. Elect., sewer, water good. Not much shopping in JC. There is a WalMart Supercenter, and auto parts stores and Ace Hardware, but any other major shopping is in Manhatton (20 miles). Good fishing at Milford Lake 10 miles away, and there is a great indoor gun range in JC for you shooters. We stayed a week. Would stay here again.
Piedmont is a small community halfway between Rapid City and SD. Elk Creek Resort is just one of many in the area and is about a mile off I-90 so no highway or train noise. The park is separated into two areas: the front 10+ acres and the back 40 acres, which is over a hill about 1/8 mile away (we liked the back). Office, store, laundry and pool are in the front 10, all are adequate but nothing fancy. Both areas are grass with gravel access road, which creates some dust. Some trees in both front and rear sections Creek and pond in the rear ares. Sites are level. Some full hook ups and some just water and electric. Dump station and water are available. Plenty of room between RV's, even for the largest, especially in the rear area. Lots of deer and wild turkey. Kids made the pool rowdy and noisy, as they allow local area folks to use pool also. Wi-Fi access is not good. Slow in the front area and no Wi-Fi in the rear area. Owner is nice and tries to be helpful. Pool is clean. Don't know about restrooms or showers as we didn't use them. Nothing in Piedmont shopping wise. We had to drive to Rapid City (10 miles) for most shopping: ie Walmart Super Center, Lowes, Starbucks, etc. We came for a rally and stayed one month. Would come here again. Be sure to catch the "Petrified Forest" which is on the property.
The extremely hot/humid weather made our stay VERY uncomfortable in this park. This park is split into two areas...the nice grassy shaded 50 amps spaces are all taken by full time residents, and I was NOT happy about that as they miss-led me when I called about having 50 amp service. if you're going to stay here, you'll be placed in the "group camping" 30 amp area on gravel in the open, though there is a large grass area with fire rings adjacent. Sites are level and not too tight, but a bit hard to back into with a big rig. Water and sewer good, but again only 30 amp. They are constructing addltion 50 amps sites but no idea when they will be done. There is no shade here and it's dusty. Camp area is very close to the shore of Milford lake. Fishing and boating good. No mosquito's which was a pleasant surprise, but there are some snakes around the lake so keep an eye out. Kayak and canoe rentals. Beach area. Hiking trails. Cabins and some tent sites on grass. Primitive toilets only and no laundry services. 10 miles from Junction City and 25 from Manhatton. Mini-mart about 2 miles. We stayed a month to visit relative. I would NOT camp here again in summer, nor would I stay longer than a couple days.
Small park: ten spaces, but clean, neat, and reasonable price. Not a whole lot of room between spaces but enough. Water, sewer, electric all good. Didn't use the cable as we have satellite. No bathrooms or showers. Good level gravel parking with shaded picnic tables and a few landscape boulders. Right in the center of town but not too noisy. Kids in the motel are noisy though. There's two pools, one inside and one out. Hot tubs not very hot. Motel breakfast available. Nice city park right across the street. Directly adjacent to large US Post Office. Motel staff friendly and helpful. Area around CC is beautiful with Bryce and Zion 1.5 hrs away. North rim of Grand Canyon 3 hrs away. Some shopping/dining within easy walk. Wal-Mart and Home Depot about 3 miles. Speed limits strictly enforced in town. Hospital and a small airport. Three gripes. The hot tubs not hot; had to call the desk to get the dumpster emptied on a regular basis which they got on right away; and people not picking up after their dogs. I would come back here again. Much better than either the KOA or the private park near the KOA. Stayed here a month. Great motorcycle area.
Large nice park. Staff was friendly. Very pretty with grass and a fishing lake. Kind of hard to find with only one sign out on the highway to direct you. Sites were all paved and level. Lake side sites are higher priced. Fairly easy access. Next to the cassino. Close to Death Valley California. Parumph is small town off the beaten path. The town has stores, hospital, and gas/diesel, but is about 1.5 hours from LV with no air access so you have to drive to LV for major shopping/medical etc. Also, be aware this is a GAMBLING deal. You can't stay for any extended amount of time (over 2 months) unless you're dropping cash in the casino on a regular basis. But that said: nice park, just not very convenient to larger city if that's your bag.
Came for the month of Apr '11 but stayed another month due to fuel prices. Park is excellent, clean. Pool nice. On site security at the gate and roving. Staff very friendly. Easy access for big rigs. 6 miles from the strip but close (walking distance) to Sam's Town Casino and Boulder Station Casino (1.5 miles). Easy freeway access to 95/515 (Henderson-Boulder City & NLV) off of Flamingo Blvd. We had a pull though deluxe site for a month then changed to a standard back-in on the asphalt. All sites are paved and level. 15 min from McCarren airport. We have a 40' FWTH. Other: It can be very windy at times, so don't leave your awning out when you're gone and WATCH your car/RV doors. Construction near the south side of the park, i.e. some noise and dust. Try to avoid a spot that has your door side to the west. Windy and hot for outside sitting. Also, avoid coming all the way through town crossing Las Vegas Blvd (strip) with your rig. Traffic is brutal. If you're coming in from the south on I-15, grab 215 towards Henderson then north on 95/515 to Flamingo Blvd. Coming in from I-15 from north grab 95/515 towards Henderson and off at Flamingo. All in all an excellent park. W'-re bailing out before it gets too hot but coming back for winter.
