The view on the way to the park is great, but we couldn't see the mountains from our site. The attendants were nice and let us drive around and pick our site before paying. The road is narrow, especially when the sites are full, but we were able to get through without much of a problem. The sites were level and easy to pull into. They were very private and had nice deep firepits, along with picnic tables at each site. You are able to run your generator from 8am-8pm, which is nice, but also allows for your evenings to be very quiet. Being in the park, access to the scenic routes was easy and we were able to travel during the peak wildlife hours, which was nice. We would definitely stay here again.

This park was great! We drove around the park in the morning looking for open sites, as they are all first come first serve, and found several nice sites available. The sites were very private; you couldn't see your neighbors while sitting by the grill/firepit area. The other really nice thing about this park is that you can run your generator from 8am-8pm. This was really nice, as you were able to use the power if needed during the day, but it was extremely quiet during the night. Since you were already in the park, it was easy access to get to the scenic route, which allowed us to drive during the best parts of the day and see a lot of wildlife. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a great campground. The owner is great in person (a little short on the phone). We called ahead, as we were on the road looking for a place to stay while traveling and he stayed up to help us check in. He provided us with an upgrade in the site for free and drove us to our site personally. Our site had a concrete pad and a light on top of the hookup box. This was a very nice addition, especially since we got there late. The hookups were easy to use. Each site had a grass area and a fire pit. The fire pit was not very deep, but it did the job. The sites were a little close, but you had enough room to extend everything and still have walking around room. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this campground because there were no other options, other than a truck stop. It is dirty, messy, smelly and expensive (for what you get). Most of the sites are seasonal campers, and they do not keep up their property at all. There was insulation all over and half built rotting decks on some of the seasonal sites. It felt like a very run down trailer park. We made sure all of the doors and windows were locked at all times. The sites were gravel and very close together. You need to share a water hookup, so we had to run the hose under our camper and add an additional 100 foot hose in order to reach the hookup. The sewer hole (and it was only a hole) was so small our hose wouldn't fit in, so you had to hold it down while emptying the tanks. Since the hole was so small, it bubbled up while you were emptying. Very messy and smelly. I would never stay here again.

The price includes Good Sam discount. We arrived here very late, but were able to fill everything out with the directions on the office door. We woke up the next morning to a beautiful view of a lake and the Glacier National Park mountains. We were only a couple of blocks away from the park entrance, which was really nice. In addition, we were only 15 miles away from the Canadian border, so we went there to check out that part of the park as well. The sites were nothing special, it was a field with power posts every couple of feet. It wasn't very level, but we were able to get our RV set using extra blocks. It wasn't too busy, so we just picked a spot on one end of the field and didn't have to worry about having any neighbors. There are only a couple of picnic tables for the whole area, so you need to share those with your neighbors. The owners were nice, but not overly helpful. It felt like you were intruding when going into the office. We would stay here again as the location is great and the sites were decent.

I agree with prior posts. The young man at the office didn't seem to care about much. He was not helpful with directions in the park, finding the site or the additional parking areas, as he wouldn't provide a site large enough for my RV and car, which I was told I would be provided when making the reservations. The roads were very bumpy and narrow. The sites were very close together. We were only able to pull into our site by moving the grill onto the neighbors site. The picnic table would only fit parallel to our RV - if you tried to flip it the other way you would be hitting your camper or your neighbors camper. The people we camped next to were great, so being so close wasn't a huge problem for us. We didn't extend the awning, as the neighbor's sewer hookup was next to our picnic table. We ended up staying here only one night and moving to the National Park campground the next day. We would not stay here again.

We arrived late to this campground and filled out the paperwork at office. Very easy to complete, even in the dark. They had our name and site number on a whiteboard in the window. Just as I was finishing the paperwork the Park Ranger appeared and was very helpful as well, providing us with directions to the park and willing to answer any questions we had. The park was easy to get around, even in the dark. We had a site on the woods side on the outside of the road. We had a spot on the end, which was great. It was a large site with a great view of the woods and right by the entrance to the trail. The sites within the center of the park appeared very close together; we would only stay on the outside ring when coming back. The bathrooms were pretty close to our site. We didn't need to use them, but did see several people using them. They appeared clean, and we didn't smell them at all, which was nice. We would stay here again, as it was easy to find, and the sites were clean.

This was a very clean and manicured campground. It was located only a couple of blocks from the entrance of the Yellowstone National Park, which was really nice. The woman that checked me in was very nice and helpful. The layout of the park was easy to get around, even with a car in tow. On their website it notes that they have different levels of amenities, but when checking in it was not offered, only the highest level was provided as an option. The website also notes free Wi-Fi with the highest level, but when checking in I was provided with a code to use for 2.5 hours of internet each day. If you log on and log off, you are done with your internet that day. I felt this was very misleading. The website does inform you that sprinklers will go off from midnight to 4am. Since there were no firepits at the campground, it is unlikely that you will still be outside during those hours, so it wasn't a problem for us. The sites are close, but do have a small grass area between each of the sites. We were able to extend our slides and awning without any problems. Overall, the experience was a good one and we would stay here again. I just felt that some of the advertising was misleading. It was very clean and we enjoyed our stay.

This campground was a little hard to find, but once we got to our site, it was wonderful. We drove past the entrance because there were no signs from the direction we came from. The man that checked us in, definitely enjoys his job. He was very helpful and actually gave us a number for someone that would deliver firewood to our site (we didn't tow a car w/ us). The roads are easy to get around and our site was very easy to back into as it had a small parking area right across the road. We were not right on the river, but across the road. We were lucky enough to have the site across the road empty all weekend, so the view was great. The one drawback was that the area we were in was very busy with traffic: bicycles, walkers, runners, cars, etc. It made our dog a little nervous, so he spent a lot of time inside. It almost felt like we were watching a parade at times. Everyone was very nice and most people said hello while passing, so more of an inconvenience then an actual problem. Next time we will try and stay right on the river so that we are facing away from the road. I agree with prior posts indicating there is a train that goes past often and is quite loud. I actually enjoyed the train. It was loud when sitting outside so you had to stop talking while the horn was going off, but inside our RV we had no problems. We had no problems sleeping through the night, even though the trains were still going past. The park rangers were around the campground at all times, which was nice. They even came by on Saturday afternoon and let us know about a cooking seminar they were providing that evening. It was a lot of fun. I also saw a Potosi police car come through Saturday night: well past dark. It was very nice to see that: helped confirm the park was safe. You can go swimming and fishing anywhere along the river: except at the boat loading/unloading area (by the entrance to the campground). This campground was great, our neighbors were friendly and the view was beautiful. I gave a little lower rating due to the amount of people at the campground, especially on Saturday night: it was very busy. We will definitely stay here again.

I agree with prior posts--the owner was wonderful. He walked us to our site and helped us park. The sites are on the small side, very close to your neighbors, but the surrounding trees make it easy to forget the neighbors are there. Everyone was friendly in the sites near us. We would definitely stay here again. It was a beautiful drive to the campground as well.

The sites are large, but you are very close to the road, so you don't have much privacy. Our site backed up to a corn field, which was nice for some extra privacy. The road through the park was a little small, but we got through without much problem. The main problem with the campground was that the electric did not work at our site. We tried everything we could to get it working, but the whole pole - both circuit breakers - were not working. We tried calling several different numbers for help (all of which were listed on the paperwork received with our reservation), at least to try a different site, but no one answered any of the phones. We ended up leaving after the first night and going to another campground. It was very disappointing.

Overall, this is a nice park. Easy to get into the sites, and the staff is friendly. The sites are open without any trees, but are large with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy yourself. The site had a great view of Lake Winnebago, and the sunsets were amazing. The negative would be the live band that played Saturday night, as they were very loud. We were several rows over from where they were playing and still had to yell to hear each other. They also went almost 30 minutes longer than they were slated to go (they were supposed to end at 10pm). We would stay here again.
