PATHETIC! i would question the post of the person who gave this park...and area...anything above a "5" rating. Being an out of state visitor, no one tells you one cannot fish nor boat on Lake Quinault. Given the state I'm from, one finds very little use for a lake if you can't fish or boat on it. Secondly, we paid 30 bucks a nite for 30 amp and no sewer????? Really???? If that wasn't bad enough...the sites are grass...at best...and the laundry area is up on the main drag. I wholeheartedly agree with the previous post that states that if this park had 50 amp AND a worthwhile management person in place, it would be a worthwhile place. We'll NOT come back..and we luckily beat out anyone else for one of the ONLY bigger spots since we were here in a 38' 5th wheel. Forego, this area and find a spot in Forks or Aberdeen...you'll be happier!
Overpriced for the value. I would stay closer to Glacier National Park or in Coram. Female owner is very pleasant. Male owner of the park is less than cordial. Dog park needs work. Laundry room was clean and orderly. Perfect Cuts meat locker...just a block away is a "plus" for this park...would certainly recommend it! Park has signs for everything else, as you enter, except for the location of the office. Watch the office/propane/lunch signs for the personnel...even if you are one minute late...they are unlikely to fill your propane tank, even though it could've easily been done as the male owner was easily within 10 feet of the office. Dumpster tends to fill up quickly and can remain overflowing.
This park sits on top of a hill and given the incredibly windy weather and all of the construction work that they are doing at the park, we couldn't even open our windows without incurring LOTS of dirt and listening to daily ongoing construction equipment noise. The only view we got was of the dust storm and the equipment. Many of the "spots" are obviously long term residents so once again it appears that an RV park has become a trailer park. Several dogs were tied up outside their campers and others were running loose. The "dog run" was a 4x4 chained spot. When I asked about other places to walk my dogs, it was suggested that I walk them among the weed infested area at the back of the park. While the office area, laundry and front of the park is "inviting", the majority of the park appears trashy. We were able to get Wi-Fi and the office staff was somewhat helpful. The shortcut that we had decided to take through Lander was a mistake. What we gained in time, we spent in much higher gas and grocery prices. I wouldn't travel this way again.
We were looking for a "non Estes Park" spot. We had read positive "posts" prior to selecting this spot. Here's what you need to think of when selecting a campsite in this area of Colorado. 1. Do you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city? If so, this might be your selection. It is VERY rustic. When viewing the campground's website, we were given the impression that a restaurant, beer garden, dog run and other amenities were present. That is NOT the case. The owner, while incredibly friendly, has this real estate all up for sale. Hence, the restaurant is not open...neither is the beer garden. We have 2 dogs...and were very dissatisfied with the lack of area in which to walk them. I'm not sure where a "dog run" is located...per prior reviews. Since the owner has this all up for sale, the lots were overgrown and the picnic tables were in terrible disrepair. The "live" music that is provided on Saturday night, is not worth the 45 bucks a nite...but, again...Colorado tries to make up...in the summer months...what it loses in the long winter months...with their tourism. So, one really finds themselves choosing between two "evils". Cell service was non-existent...the campground does provide DSL service, which is lethargic to say the least. Free ice was a plus...and the wonderful sounds of the river side site...were relaxing and pleasant. In the end, we were glad that we were NOT in Estes Park for our stay...but, had to "swallow" some of the missing intended perks for the 45 bucks a nite.
The office staff was helpful. You have very little to pick from in this area of Colorado. While the campground was conveniently located to the Garden of the Gods park, Pikes Peak, Seven Falls, and other sites....it is somewhat difficult to get into and out of...even without a camper. I had hoped for my 50 bucks a nite that I would be able to use the many amenities that are listed on their website...however, both pools were being redone...and we had no access to the hot tub. Also, the dog run was being torn down and located next to the campsite sewer system. When the wind was blowing from the north, you could certainly smell the horse stables that are located on the north end of the park...this made it unpleasant to sit outside and enjoy the cooler temps. Pikes Peak is "visible" in this campground...but, NOT worth the high prices. I would stay here again...if I had to...but, would most likely move on up the road to other locations.
There is very little to pick from in this area of Colorado. We are not "KOA" types, but wanted to take in the historic parts of this area, as well as Bent's Fort, so we went with this selection. Most of the park was occupied by road crews and other seasonal workers. Also, it is obvious that much of the remaining parts of the park are "long timers." So, as you look at number of sites available, that is drastically reduced by the above "tenants." In speaking with the front desk, he virtually has only 5-8 spots to work with until September, so if you are traveling through this part of Colorado, I would strongly suggest reservations. We had to make due with a 30 amp site, as all of the 50 amp sites were taken. The pool was being redone, so it was not available. The "dog park" was small, and sandy, but made due. The office staff was very helpful and friendly!!! In fact, I needed to fax some paperwork, and they were able to do that with very little effort. The laundry room was clean but only had 2 dryers for the 4 washers, which were always busy due to the seasonal tenants. I would stay here again simply because the office staff was so helpful.
Upon checking in at the visitor center, we were greeted by a "less than friendly" park ranger and volunteer. I was glad that we were able to use our Texas State Park Pass discount that was available, as I would have moved on. If you choose to camp here, I would make sure to fuel up before making your way to the campground. Also, make sure you have plenty of food, as you will have a long way to travel to get groceries or find a good place to eat. We've been to Palo Duro Canyon, and I would certainly skip Caprock for Palo Duro, any day of the week. The mesquite bushes did very little to provide shade. The bathrooms had broken tiles and "un-invitable." Cell service and internet were NON-EXISTENT! I had to "beg" to get the free audio CD tour of the park. It was also: uneventful.
When we called to make a reservation for a week, the office was insistent upon our coming to McGee's Landing first to pay for our week, sign a contract, and then take our money. After we did that, we were told to cross over the levee to the campground. Now I know why we were told to come to McGee's Landing, first. Upon our entrance to the campground we saw: 1. an old washing machine, 2. old tires, 3. empty beer bottles, 4. an old vehicle with its hood propped open, 5. massive amounts of personal trash, 6. an office that is closed and has an old worn out ice maker propped on the porch, 7. broken lawn chairs/other broken items, 8. other campsites that were under water that appeared to have sewage in them, 9. large equipment tearing up tree trunks. We parked our RV only to be approached by a massive sewer smell. There was mud everywhere. It was impossible to walk our dogs without being in mud or approached by stray cats. I will never stay here again!
Ugh, first of all, you have to travel through a trailer park to even get to the "camping" area. We were lucky enough to get a "concrete pad" to park our 5th wheel, but only because my husband is a pro at parking our 38 footer did we even manage making it into our spot. The ongoing humming of some kind of electric facility was very annoying, and the entire park was rundown. Again, with limited options, this appeared the "best of the worst," but if I had it to do over again, I'd keep moving onto the next town. The office staff was friendly and helpful, but for 29 bucks a night, this is a total rip off.
Our rate of 26 dollars a night is a weekly rate, along with a "lake view." We spent two weeks here. The lake view option gave us a "bigger spot/area." The laundry area was immaculate. The office staff was very friendly! And, since we spent two weeks here, we even got to be a part of the park's Mardi Gras "parade" and other activities. The nice walking path along the lake. Made it ideal for our dogs. The lake is stocked with fish, and the park is very clean. We would definitely stay here, again!
You have to "travel thru" a run down area to get to the state park...this can be "off putting". Because we had a 38 foot RV, we opted to camp in campground B. Either way, this is the nicer of the two campgrounds. If you have a long rig, I would encourage you to park your rig in a spot and then report to the state park/campground offices. We did note that some spots had sewer in addition to water/ electric. Since we were not needing sewer, and most of the spots, with sewer, were reserved we opted for the 18 bucks a night, option. Very quiet, scenic and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
With very few options in Vicksburg, your choices are "slim to none". I had read previous reviews about how this place would be good to stay at for a nite or two...and I concur. We ended up staying 4 days...and that was too long. Most of this park is dedicated to long term campers...with run down facilities. It had just rained 10 days in a row and the muddy conditions of the gravel "interior" were unacceptable. The small size of the park, along with the ongoing truck traffic and megawatt outdoor lights detracted from our experience and didn't warrant the excessive price. I wouldn't stay here, again.
Oh my goodness: this is an incredible find! We learned that "parish" parks are not the same as "state" parks. We had an incredible view of the small lake. And the walking path around the lake was perfect for our 2 dogs. This was so picturesque that we hated to leave! I am sure that during the other months of the year that this place would be hard to get into without a reservation. The office staff was very helpful and the scenery: very beautiful. We'd stay here, again: in a New York minute!
This was a very clean park. It is obvious that about half of the park is "long term". Since we were able to use our Passport America discount...and only needed to stay one night...therefore, that is the reason for the 16 dollar nightly rate. The office staff was incredibly nice and helpful. We were able to get propane even tho it was "off hours" for propane. The size of the park made it easy for me to walk my dogs. They also have a little "doggie park". The swimming pool area looked really nice. We would definitely stay here, again!
A family owned RV park, this is conveniently located just blocks off of the Ouray main street. The view of the mountains, from the park, is very scenic. The owners were very helpful with tourist info and our spot was nice and roomy. I would definitely stay in this park, again!!!
Only because we were able to get a $16 rate for 50amp during 100+ degree weather: that we decided to stay here. The park is very run down with a "junkyard" appearance. Upon our arrival on Friday afternoon, several "drinking buddies" came up to us and quizzed us about our 5th wheel. From there on out, my husband occupied me each time we walked our dogs. I assumed because this was a Passport America park that we'd experience something else. Boy, was I wrong!
