The location with respect to town is awesome. The park itself is another story. The park is located in a gulch. This in itself creates issues. Hard to get either cell phone or TV reception. The campground is long and narrow with the office close up front. The further you go away from the office, no WI-FI. Put all three together ... no communications with the outside world. The facilities are older and need updating. The office looks cool from the outside but becomes very boring once you enter. Very poorly used. The employees working when I checked in were nice ... well they were not rude. They hardly spoke and had difficulty operating the check-in system. The layout of the campground is awkward. as you go up the gulch, your campsite starts getting more slanted. Our picnic table sloped from left to right about 10-12 inches. The only flat spot on our site was the gravel pad we parked our 5th wheel and truck on. No additional room for a table. We could not even sit outside on level ground without sitting under our tongue. If you don't want to communicate with the grandchildren or check email or sit outside, or use the facilities, or watch any TV, this is your campground for location only.

Very nice owners. We had problems with our refridgerator and they helped by storing our food for us and gave us the name of a nearby repair facility

Good Sam has this rating for restrooms all wrong. They were horrible, mold growing in the showers, white PVC pipe ran for the showers with a wee tiny shower head, no water pressure. The park is nice, lots are roomy but not worth the money charged.
