We stayed here for 3 nights. Check-in was a breeze, though parking a 38-foot motorhome towing for registration was not. You have to turn up a slight hill (difficult if approaching from a right turn) and then there is one spot for RV parking. Staff was very nice and helpful, both on the phone and in person. Kinda wondered where the adult supervision was. Seems everyone who works there is a teen. Not a problem at all, though. They took care of business. We got a free garbage bag at check-in as well. That was pretty cool since we always need them.
We got a decent pull-through site, but the setup was not well thought out. The hookups are all spaced away from each other. We had to park in the middle of the pad to make sure we could hook up AND allow our awning to cover the picnic table. We had no room to move the table because the hookups for the site next to us are spaced out in the middle of the grass. How silly. Since we were parked in the middle, we just barely fit our Jeep in. The sites are also a little close. On the third day, another coach pulled into the space next to us. Since the hookups are so close, his power and water lines were practically in our camp, right up against the picnic table. Not cool. There were plenty of empty spaces. They should try harder to give people space and only squeeze you together when there isn't any.
We weren't crazy about the RV sites being located right in front of the activity areas, but it ended up not being much of a problem. We weren't annoyed by the kids at all. I will say to other campers with kids (and dogs): Please keep them off sites that are occupied. Watched them cross our grass and then went out one time and someone had let their dog pee on my Jeep tire! Disgusting and rude!
At night it was quiet. No camp noise and no street noise. The park is closed on Sundays, so there were no kids running around. That was a nice surprise. The park was actually well lit, too. We HATE parks that are pitch black at night. It's scary and dangerous, and unnecessary. Very happy about that.
We appreciated the proximity to Hill AFB for commissary, etc. We chose this place over the base for the WiFi. Speaking of which, as usual, it's not the best. It's great for casual 'net surfing. We finally get to a place that doesn't have an annoying splash screen that prevents us from using our Apple TV and the service is so slow we can't use it anyway. No cable (in this day and age, every campground should have this), but our satellite and antenna worked well.
We would probably stay here again if we're ever in the area, but only if the base doesn't have WiFi. We prefer military campgrounds. Great location for exploring the area if you choose to do so. We were here to visit a friend and relax a little after 4 months on the road.
