The park is a great central place to stay to get around the Valley. Directly across from the RV parking is employee apartment style housing, and adjacent there are many trailers and mobile homes that are parked on the small "streets" that surround the RV area. All of the employees were very friendly, and it is fun to walk around and see how everyone has their little slice of home life set up. You back your RV into your space, and if you have a larger RV, it is somewhat tight to make the turn-in. All of the hook ups are at the very rear of the site, and as others have mentioned, the hook-up for sewer is uphill so you should have some type of support for your sewer hose in order to make grade and get drainage. The only reason I didn't give the park a higher star rating was because it was difficult even with my supports to get grade for of the sewer hook-up. Electricity was stable, cable TV hookup worked well, and water pressure was decent. We could not get our Wi-Fi to work until we called a telephone support number, but after some assistance it worked very well. The swimming pool is fed by a hot spring and is 85 degrees year round. Be mindful not to leave your awning out while you are away touring because high winds can come up on a moment’s notice.
This park closes at 8pm and there is no way to enter if you arrive late. There is a small dirt loop with 4 spaces to the right of the registration area for late arrivals to park and boondock. We arrived about 10pm so we drove the loop and backed into a spot. We were the only people there and it was obviouly very quiet. We dry camped for the night and than spoke with the rangers the next morning. Parking in the loop is free so all in all it was a nice savings. Please note the only reason I put $1 for the cost is the software would not allow me to put a $0. I suppose hookups and having people around would have been safer but it was a good experience. Because we haul a motorcycle with us for touring we also saved driving the motorhome down the curvy road to the campsites and canyon area. It is really a nice road to take a motorcycle to see everything. Very pretty views and a few nice places to take a walk in the canyon.
This is a really beautiful place with some great sites right by the water. We had a pull through (#18) that was just perfect. Site was fairly level and had plenty of space for our 37' RV. The park was quiet with good distance between parking spaces. Other guest and the staff was friendly. There is a Good Sam Club campground host that will offer advice for hiking and sites. The Petit Jean lodge has been recently restored and has nice views of the valley. They offer Wi-Fi at the lodge but not the campground. We will schedule another stay at this park in the future.
We had to drive through a storm and arrived very late in the night. At the registration office is instructions for late arrivals but you must pay attention to the note posted up that gives a code to open the gate arm in order to enter the campground. Once we entered, we found Campground B which has large fairly level spaces that you back into. Being November there were very few people staying in the park, perhaps 30-40. The restrooms were spotless. Was very impressed with how they were clean and well maintained. Staff was very pleasant and made sure to invite us back in the future.
