This site has no dump station, but one with potable water is located within easy reach at the fairgrounds, about 10 mins away. Laundry on site, but only 1 washer and dryer. Our only con with this campground is that there is no discount for pool or hot spring, you pay same price as general public. They have teepees and Conestoga wagons for rent. We paid $15 with passport America discount, restrictions apply ( 3 days discount per week )

The price reflects full price for Fri, Sat, Sun ($45) and Passport America price for Mon - Thurs ($22.50). Our site, 41, was level and grass with electric but a lot of sticks/branches from a wind storm. Note that this row of campsites backs up to cattle and it smells like it. The campground was open but the springs area was not so we had the campground pretty much to ourselves until Thursday afternoon. We are very glad we left the next morning because a lot of huge class A's moved in around us for a very large party time! I'm glad for them but when 40+ people with lots of kids and dogs running loose everywhere, we knew our quiet time was over. We would stop here again if needed but only in the off season. I'm glad they kept the campground open during the covid pandemic because we are full time searching for CG's. I would add that their camp host couple this year are very nice, professional and experienced people and the owners are lucky to have them with the what their job entails.

    Nice Stop-off Interstate 15 between Butte and Salt Lake City.

This campground is locally famous for their Hot Springs. Our spot was adjacent to a horse corral with many beautiful horses in it, which was a plus for us. (No smell that we could detect.) Using the pool and springs is $8. Depending on where you park, there are some low hanging tree branches to be aware of driving through. Most spots have no sewer. Dump Station is 3 miles away in the city of Downey - $5 honor system self-service cash or credit card. Not posted is that Shower houses require 50-cents, so bring some change. Verizon reception is pretty spotty. Usually 2 bars and good enough for phone calls. Data is not real good between 5-10 mbps Download / below 4 for Upload. Mornings are better for data. AT&T better with 10-20 mbps Download / below 10 Upload. T-Mobile is the best at between 20-30mbps Download, but dismal upload below 1 mbps. Only restaurant for 20 miles is the Flag's West truck stop that gets high ratings in Yelp. Small market in town that we did not go to. Walmart and Costco are an hour away in Pocatello. Definitely stock up before coming here. All in all a good stop-off between Butte and Salt Lake City.

We really enjoyed the hot springs pool and water slides and it was a highlight for the kids. The larger slides up the hill were fun for us too! Even though it was chilly out the pool was 94 degrees so was very comfortable! There were Horses nearby. It was a pretty park.Laundry facility is small with one washer and dryer. Everything seemed clean and nice, except the pool shower and changing areas need remodeled as they were not good.We couldn’t find the dump in town and should have asked about where that was before we left. We tried to call but no one answered in the office. We found a dump at a Flying J on our route north, about 25 minutes away. AT&T coverage worked great here.

Nothing exceptional but no problems. The sites are pretty close to each other, so make sure to point your entry away from your neighbor or you’ll be best friends soon.The facilities seemed like they needed a cleaning, especially the showers. There were spider webs all over, one of the lights didn’t work and the shower didn’t drain. It’s $.50 for a 6 minute shower, but the shower filled up and you were standing in a puddle after 3 minutes so the 6 min timer didn’t mean much as I rushed to finish my shower.The water park is decent fun and the kids seemed to really enjoy it. The snack shop on site had decent food, but service was slow. Also, if you want to eat at the restaurant, they require you to make reservations by noon the day of or they won’t fit you in. It’s not due to capacity, though, I think they have to unfreeze or shop for the food. It was also an extra cost if you wanted a box for your pizza!At any rate, we’d come back for the water park, but there’s a reason the campground was completely empty during the week: with the water park closed, there’s not much to do and not much to enjoy.

We really like this RV park even though we haven’t even used the pools yet. The staff are really nice and a hamburger at their little restaurant really hits the spot after a long day.- Dog friendly- Seems really family friendly- 3 or 4 bars Verizon signal- There is wifi but it’s pretty slow- Price - we paid 25/night for water/power- The park is really clean and well kept- There are a lot of rv, tent, teepee and cabin sites, this park does seem to get really full in the summer but only a few people stay after school starts- The site spacing is not terribly tight but fairly close- It’s really quiet (in the fall) especially on the west row by the fence- It looks like there’s lots of dirt roads to explore to the south, at the very least it’s a nice place to take a long walk- We haven't used the pools but there are multiple hot tubs, regular pools, and water slides.
