“Nice free spot”

Reviewed Jun 15, 2018

Overall Rating

The dirt road has few potholes but not a problem with my travel trailer. If you arrive there at night, it’s hard to find all of the parking spaces. No street lights. I parked in front of the restroom. It was all right until the next morning. Many campers started using the restroom and I felt uncomfortable. So I left there after a quick... more

“Yeah some truck noise but wide open, level and spacious. Dog paradise. ”

I stayed here on my way into the southern entrance to Grand Teton and Yellowstone, now coming back here again. Easy big rig stopping place, lotsa flat areas. Ruts and potholes in the usual places. Nice views, just a day user or two, wide open. The reservoir seems low now and that makes a long beach. I plan on a two day stop over. This... more

“Breathtaking, Peaceful, Wide Open Space!”

Reviewed Sep 22, 2016

Overall Rating

My family loved this site! The views all around were absolutely amazing. Maybe it was the time of year (late September), but it was wide open...just us and five other campers in the entire area, with the nearest neighbor a couple hundred yards away. Totally dark. Totally silent. The road in is a little bumpy in spots, but there was p... more

“Ugh, 4-wheelers and toy haulers”

Reviewed Sep 21, 2016

Overall Rating

Unfortunately we arrived just before labor day weekend and the lake was well down that late in the season. Not very scenic at that point, then add to it the hundreds of dirt bikes and quads running around stirring up all sorts of dust... well, we moved on after only a single night. Right across the highway is Forest Rd 281 with 10X bet... more

“Big & Popular Camping Area on the Palisades Reservoir”

Reviewed Sep 19, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a really neat area to camp in because it offers so many options for your campsite. The road comes straight off of US Hwy 26, so it is very easy to find and access. The main road then goes straight toward the reservoir for a miles or two. As you drive down the road there will be small secluded campsites tucked into trees and ... more

Reviewed Aug 21, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed here thanks to the reviews we read here and we're so glad we did! We arrived on a Saturday evening and didn't have a hard time finding a spot, although there were about 20 other people camped here. By Sunday night it was just us and one other trailer (about 400 yards away) for the next two nights. We chose a spot very clos... more

“Always a great spot”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed here twice, and loved it both times. Easy access to the camp spots, nice and grassy, and fairly quiet. We have never had trouble getting our big rig in, although watch out for dips and ruts in the road. Lots of bird watching, and the flowers in summer are beautiful. There is a boat dock, and a few more locals will show up on ... more
