Based on the previous reviews we decided to stop here overnight on our way north. The park was relatively easy to find and although it is a fair drive off the Interstate that was not an issue. However, once we were in the park the signage was inadequate to help us find the office to sign in. We finally found it and the sign in process was relatively easy. Our biggest problem was that the power...

We've stayed here many times before and not much has changed, except that the laundry room has been re-done with all new (and FREE) washer's and dryers. When we arrived (with a reservation) we were told we would have to settle for a site "down below" rather than on the paved sites we'd requested since there had been power problems and the power didn't work on about 6 sites. We drove to the park and realized that there...

We stayed here 3 nights and have one major warning for anyone using GPS to get to the campground. In a word, DON'T. Use the directions listed on this site or in the book. We were coming from the east and GPS took us all over the place. We'd have been much better off taking Exit 7 (Blue Angel Parkway, although it isn't listed as such on the signs) which takes you right to the gate you...

This park is appropriately priced for what it offers. We parked in the "back forty" and the cement pads are large and level. However, the electrical service is weak. We tripped a breaker, which required the service of an electrician to re-set as it took out the entire leg. This should NOT have happened (only the breaker on our pole should have tripped.) The young sergeant who came out told us that he has had repeated calls...

I basically agree with vdub's review. It's a long way to drive, but it is quiet and it's also a way to avoid El Paso if you are heading to Carlsbad Caverns as we are. The auto shop here is very well equipped, including a hoist that easily handled our one ton Dodge dually. The staff at the auto shop was very helpful, not only with the work my husband was doing on the truck, but also...

The park (and the base, for that matter) are in an out of the way location and not conducive to overnights unless, like us, you happen to be traveling across North Dakota on US 2. The main gate is called the "Magic City" gate and there is nothing on the signs that indicate that "Magic City Gate" IS the main gate. It is the second gate you come to if you are traveling north on US 83 off...

This is a beautiful campground. The sites are large, level, and have excellent hook ups. However, it has some downsides that you should be aware of. The following comments are offered as information, not complaint. First of all, it is a long ways from the CG to any base services (hospital, PX, Commissary) and any community services (e.g. shopping.) If you want to go any place, you will have to drive a minimum of 8 miles--the...

The campground had been cleaned up considerably. The new pads are level and large, with both back in and pull through sites. It is quiet (aside from the helicopters flying overhead on occasion) and rustic. The bathrooms/showers desperately need updating and a good cleaning, but since we don't use them it wasn't an issue for us. A bigger issue (and one that would keep us from staying longer than a week) is the lack of sewer hook-ups. However, the power...
