Basic campground with full hook up sites. We stayed overnight and could have Wallydocked up the street however the forecast was predicting 20 degrees overnight and the FHU with 50 amp was appealing. (It was 18 degrees at 8am). The access is easy, check in parking was OK for one at a time. The sites are split with back in near the store and pull thrus in the area adjacent in the rear. Some pull thrus are short, others are longer. The hook ups are located between adjacent sites. (So your neighbor could be the opposite way). We were the only one in the entire campground. The water pressure was high, recommend a pressure value. The area including the sites are gravel and have a slight slope. Laundry on site was $1.50 for wash/dry. The store has a good variety of supplies and gas, no diesel through. We checked in with the staff who was very helpful. She told us to pick any site we wanted. No wifi or cable, but we were able to get over 20 OTA channels. Overall, not a fancy place but adequate for a short stay. - DJR CMR

We love the big trees and the location for riding our Polaris Razor. Quiet park close to shopping. The little convenience store here in the park is handy to gas up, get something hot to eat, or do the laundry. We have stayed here 3 times and will keep coming back! - Pamelot

We stayed 1 night passing through the area. The park is a short drive from I-70 (Exit 25) along a paved 2 lane rural road into the center of the very small town. The transition from the street into the park was not the smoothest but was manageable. Check in is accomplished in the convenience store but registration parking is limited and tight. The interior roads and site parking pads are compacted gravel. Some of the turns were tight and the arrangement of the sites to the road required making 2 loops through the small park to get properly aligned for utility connections.
All of the sites are pull throughs. Some of the P/T's were just long enough to remain connected to the toad and the others were wide enough to park 2 vehicles abreast if needed. As the park was built on sloping field, it showed the park didn't completely understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as some of the sites had a slight 2 directional pitch potentially creating a possible leveling issue. They have full hook ups: water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were generally at the middle of the site. The sewer connect was slightly elevated but it wasn't too difficult to establish a downhill flow. Distance establishes privacy between the sites but the sites were generally close.
There were a few wooden outside tables scattered around the park so each didn't have a table and there were no fire pits. A few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception was dependent on site selection or assignment. The park didn't offer any cable channels and there was no mention of any broadcast channels on the limited park information material. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park did not provide WiFi. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception.
There was no designated fenced pet area. There was adequate space along the park's road to exercise a dog. We would stay here again for an overnight stop only. - bsb814

I was shocked to read that someone had a bad experience at this place. Ken and his staff were very courteous and helpful. They even let us barrow a drill to repair our ATV's. How great is that!! All facilities were very clean while we were there. Heck... you don't even have pay for the showers, like you do down the road at another campsite. I highly recommend this camp location to any outdoor enthusiast. The scenery was awesome with the river running right behind us, lush beautiful grass at all sites, and the best part, the ATV trail to the Pauite Trail was just across the street. Our kids had a great time as well and what really topped it for them was while we were grilling up dinner at dusk, some deer came trotting down the ATV trail on the other side of the river. It sure can't get any better than that. Thanks Winklemans for an awesome short vacation!! - Brian C

Unreal. I wish my friends whom talked us into going to this place would’ve read the earlier review, our experience was 100% similar. This place has so much potential yet is totally and utterly mis/unmanaged making for a frustrating camping experience. You have to check in the restaurant (doesn’t open until 11a.m.) and you’re provided no info at all i.e. no camp map, no rules sheet which later made sense as it seems they have no rules, no info on where to go if you have problems after hours etc. Dogs (both management's and customer's) are allowed to roam off-leash 24/7; expect to get your property "marked" as well as you and your pets to be harassed. The management either were not there or knew and overlooked: Kids as young as 2-3 years old left unsupervised and wandering about the camp (parents went off ATVing); kids were allowed to make (and ride) a race track in the campground with their mini-ATVs (including after dark); we were kept up by an unruly family until 3a.m. one night and went to complain about that and the fact this family had also dumped (on purpose) their entire grey tank on the ground the evening prior. It took “management” 30 min to even show up to hear the complaint, and then they took no action. We later heard this same family had just been kicked out of Candy Mountain (what this place should have done). Not impressed with the construction nor cleanliness of the restrooms, only 2 portable fire pots for 6 sites, gravel/dirt pads that got semi-muddy in rain, no store for supplies at all, and since you’re near the river...tons of bugs that bite. About the only good things I can say is the spots have good room between them with nice grass (after you clean the dog waste), you have access to the ATV trails, and Candy Mountain resort is only about a mile away (clean looking, has a store with basic supplies etc). No way I’d stay here again, do yourself a favor and try other options in the immediate area. - blomquir

OH BOY!!! This is my first RV Park review. The reason that I went through the trouble to register for this site was to WARN ALL OF YOU. OK sure this is a beautiful area. Yes you do have direct access to the Paiute trails. I am sure you heard this coming BUT, you also get dogs that want to mark your front porch carpet as their territory, not to mention the cats that want to spray your rig as well. Another thing you get is FILTHY bathrooms. Do not hold your breath for anything promised on the web site. Management is completely unavailable and the help has no idea about anything. Like gardening??? No worries, the local residents that live no more than 20 feet away will be glad to demonstrate the wonders of a rototiller while you attempt to enjoy your quiet afternoon beer. If construction is your hobby, we got you covered there too. I think they are doing some grading on the lower part of their property and there is a tractor towing tons of dirt passed your campsite 12 hours a day, starting at 7am. There seems to be a much better RV park up the road in Big Rock Candy Mountain. We love this area and will be contacting them for our next trip up here. - Onebadpopup

Beautiful campground. Clean restrooms; no showers. Siesta level and roomy. Good trails in the park. A little tricky figuring out how to get there. On the frontage road you go past the Visitor Information Centre and the Sam Stowe Campground is on the left where it says "Sam Stowe Canyon". The "archway" entrance is tall enough for your fifth wheel! - ouachita princess

We spent two nights here (and arrived in the early afternoon) in order to see as much as two slightly feeble oldsters can. The layout of the Sam Stowe Campground is great, with a small central oval planted with trees and native vegetation. A local gardening club has also planted native bushes between each site so although sites are sort of close to each other, it felt very private. Plus each site has only a canyon wall behind it so when looking out the back window of our trailer we only saw lovely nature.
Fremont Indian State Park has two campgrounds, this one and a tent/primitive one, but one checks in at the Visitor Center/Museum for both. The entire park is alongside I-70, but even so was very quiet, mostly. I used RV Trip Wizard to find this campground and was a bit confused since their database did not make it clear that this is a single state park with two campgrounds, each with their own level of amenities & separate campground names, but both are within "Fremont Indian State Park" and reservations at Sam Stowe are made using ReserveAmerica.
After resolving our initial confusion, we loved the Sam Stowe campground. One can walk to the museum or drive there from the campground. The park has numerous well-marked hikes to see some of the hundreds of petroglyphs on the canyon walls, each carefully labelled as to length and difficulty. The museum has plastic sheets with info for each hike and item to be seen along the hike. Pick them up before setting out, and return them afterwards. The museum itself provides a good overview and background for what is to be seen outside on the hikes. - Weelyrd

Beautiful small canyon. Sites are clean and well maintained. We used electric. Sites are very close together. Middle of nowhere except for interstate. Campground is 1 mile off interstate along a frontage road. Despite being so close to the freeway, we heard minimal freeway traffic. Put the Fremont Indian State Park in GPS and get off at that exit, NOT the exit to the north and the frontage road. - JJDK

Our pull-through site was fairly level and all utilities worked well. The Wi-Fi signal is weak and slow when you can connect. The campground is poorly marked and easy to miss. Across the street there is a huge Big Rock Candy Mountain sign, restaurant and hotel. Getting into the campground is tricky and has a low overhang of 12' 8" in front of the office that we steered around. We would stay here again if in the area and can't get into Richfield. - dandg

Beautiful sites. I stayed in a riverfront site, while having no sewer hookups, it was fine for the one night I stayed there. Loved the sound of the river flowing just ten-twelve feet outside the window all night.
The resort is undergoing renovation, but it's not affecting the RV park at all. If anything, the staff is going the extra mile to see that you're satisfied with your stay. Plenty of kids at the playground to keep my nine year old boy occupied with new friends. Great wifi connectivity too. - GoldRVer

Not bad park, but rough on the edges! Do have a restaurant across the highway and not too bad. However, they advertise "gas" (which was important for us ATV'ers), but all four pumps were out of order. The problem - the lady in the office was not the least bit concerned, and indicated they had not been working for awhile?! Acted as though she could care less. We will be staying at another park just up the highway next season when all 6 motorhomes in our group return to Marysvale. - holychit

Great RV park right on the river with access to the Paiute Trail. We inititally had a problem with our reservation, since our site was not long enough for our RV and ATV trailer. But, the owners were very accomodating and let us park our trailer in the Tent area nearby. The turn into the park is a bit tricky coming from the north. But, we made it with a 50 ft rig & trailer. The Wifi is very weak. It works great at the store (above) but not so well at the more distant camp sites. There is very little cell reception. There are other parks near Marysvale. But, this one has much more character. - LejaFamily

If you come in from I-70 you need to turn left in store gas station to Register. But other than this, it is one of BEST places to stay in Marysvale. Good site, all around easy assess to Pauite Trails, the beautiful colored mountain side on other side of road. - zookep9

Four motorhomes traveled together to Hoovers to camp in comfort while being able to ride ATV's directly out of camp and onto the famous Paiute Trail. Nice sized site with grassy lawns and backing onto the Sevier River. Only six sites so need to reserve early. Rest of complex is comprised of 7 cabins of various sizes for up to large families. We came after the Labor Day holiday rush, so can't be sure what it's like with lots of other folks staying in all the cabins. Store with sport equipment rentals and a down home grill preparing three meals a day. Fun sportsman experience and great access to many trails. - happy trails

Great camphost. Clean CG. Nestled in the trees with creek running through. Campsites separated and private. Will go back. No AT&T connection but Verizon has 3 bars. We were in double sites. Moved from 21 to 22 for better solar exposure. Water available at several spots in campground. - Redrockmom

This is a nice little campground nestled in a scenic canyon about a mile from the Visitor's Center on a well maintained gravel road. It is an ideal location if you have ATVs as there are several access points to the Paiute ATV trail systems...and you can ride right from your campsite. Our rig is 66' in length and we had no problem finding a nice back-in site. There are also a few double pull through sites (you have to pay double for the site). We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. - Babas

If you don't like ATVs this campground is not for you. Park allows ATVs trail access and is a popular spot for ATVers to camp. This is a rather primitive campground as it has vault toilets, no showers, and no hookups. Water is availble on site but in limited quantities i.e. runs off a small tank, dirt road into the campground, small spots and loop is not designed for larger RVs. Nice stream runs through the campground. - blomquir

This review is for the Castle Rock campground in the Fishlake National Forest. We stayed here one night on our 3-week trip and it was the nicest campground we found. Yes it is rustic, but that is the way we like them. The sites were nicely separated by trees and shrubs, the park and restrooms were very clean and we found the campground (on a weekday night) as quiet as it could be. The scenery here is also fantastic! We would definitely stay here again. - dizzy2

We stayed at the Doctor Creek Campground. Directions: from Hwy 62/24, turn east on paved Hwy 25 and go about 6 miles. The campground is on the right at 8852' elevation. This is a rustic campground set amidst aspen trees. There are flush toilets. Some sites were big enough for our 40' rig and car. It overlooks a large meadow and the equally large Fishlake is nearby. This campground closes on September 15. We would stay here again. - nbi600

We stopped here because of snow in the passes on I70. The spaces are almost all pull through with lots of trees. Site was level, we didn't have to unhook. The staff was super friendly. All in all, and excellent rv park. - hudsonguy

Park is located in town and close to all shopping. Pull-thru & back-ins are more than adequate. You are close to your neighbors. The park is shaded, so a dish will not work and their cable TV has very limited channels. They advertise wi-fi, but it is non-existant. You will need your own hot spot. Good overnight stop. - Piperflyer 235

Lovely campground, in town. It's obvious that the owners take great pride in this place and enjoy making it nice for us to enjoy. Lots of green space, a lovely pool, and wide, shaded sites. Check-in was a breeze and we were escorted to our full service, pull-through site which was nice and wide and had a cement area for the picnic table. Water/Electric/Sewer all worked fine. Great cable. We did not try the WIFI as we had good Verizon signal. This KOA caters to ATV enthusiasts and folks were definitely having a good time (we do not ATV, but enjoyed learning about this hobby). Gravel doggy area. We had a great time here and would definitely stay again if in the area. - Janau NC

This is a rv park which caters to ATV riders and includes onsite ATV rental. You can access 1000 miles of the Piute trail system directly from this rv park. The park is gravel with a few trees and very little grass (this is the desert). Our site was a very long pull thru with good access. We stayed here the day after memorial day and the park was almost empty (it was full over the holiday weekend). The only problem area was trying to figure out where the office is for checkin and then where to park for checkin. Turn east on Rio Grande Ave off of Highway 89 and then park on the edge of the road and go across the street to the office (where all the atvs are parked. The office is on the corner of Hwy 89 and Rio Grande. This is a great place to go to ride ATVs. - lyzzards

Their sites are not big and you are just a couple feet from the next trailer. I couldn't put our awning out without touching the trailer next to me. We had a dog and ours is always leashed and there were dogs running everywhere, of which they did nothing about and lots of dog poop not picked up everywhere you walked. They have no dog park to take them to. The facilities were below average and the sites are very hard to get in and out of if you have a big rig. Facilities including the restrooms are very old. You have no view except another trailer and it is in the middle of old homes. The people at check in were friendly, but we wouldn't stay there again. - rzr warrior

Basically just a big gravel pit and they put metal fence posts to separate the sites. If this place was full and you were trying to back in to your site, you would have a difficult time because there is not a lot of space between the rows. The other big down side is that while dogs are allowed, there really isn't any on site location to take them, aka grass. There is however a city park two blocks away. Some sites do have grass but it appears that it is dedicated to those specific sites. This place is okay if you want to go ride ATVs plus it is close to the gas station/grocery store. - Techn0
