Jul 2018 - $30.00
We stayed here for the Monaco and FMCA rallies in July of 2018, so our site cost wasn't broken out separately. We parked in the "Marquee Lot" with easy access to Garner Lake and Boxelder Roads. This lot is completely 30/50A Full Hook Up sites. Each distribution panel has 4 50A connections and 4 30A. 50A plugs are mounted on the panel frame and 30A cords are nested on the ground under the box. Individual sites do not get access to pedestal breakers. Because of this, your power may be on the "other" side of your rig. We snaked the cord under the rig and did not need an extension cord. It's basically a grass pasture, and deceptively bumpy; drive slowly. We were at the western edge of the lot so thought we'd be more level but still needed over 5 inches of lift in one corner of the rig. Sites closer to the event facilities were much more sloped side-to-side. 50A power was good, although we did have an issue with the 50A distribution breaker tripping at about 32A; Cam-Plex staff were on scene within minutes and had the breaker changed quickly (I was prepared for a "it must be you" speech but was pleasantly surprised). Because it's just a pasture, DirecTV was excellent, as was VZW. There was mention of campus Wi-Fi but we never found it. We had rain that turned the dusty areas to mud temporarily, but everything dried out quickly. As a rally site, this facility is very good (we're used to the sound of industrial generators running 24/7 at large rallies). For a short stay passing through, we would definitely stay here again (Boxelder campground hosts individual stays). - RvTravelerNTechie

Stayed for an FMCA rally. Box Elder Lot, FHU. Packed in like sardines. Couldn't even put out window awnings, much less patio awning! Rain brought mud from hell, but it quickly dried up when the winds from hell kicked back up after the rains. Seriously, this is a huge field with no shade (great satellite reception) and zero protection from the storms that roll through regularly. I know the facility can't control the weather, but accessing a safe area requires you to get in a vehicle and drive to a safe building. Not well thought out. No sidewalks to the main meeting places, just take your chances on the roads. Electricity and water supplies were excellent, though! Not a destination, to be sure. - DebbieT in Alabama

We stayed in Boxelder RV Park for 8 nights in June 2018 with the Newmar International Rally. We had 50 amp, water and sewer. Utilities were conveniently located and worked well. It was hot and all of us were running A/Cs so kudos for good power! Rigs were crammed in like sardines with toads parked partially in the road due to lack of space. It is muddy and messy when it rains. Verizon cell and mifi signals were so-so. Newmar provided wifi which never worked anywhere on the entire property. We had clear sky for satellite signal. There was a tornado warning and we had to evacuate to the locker rooms inside the Cam-Plex. The good news is that they have an excellent safe place with ample room. The bad news is they don't have a siren system (which they should because severe weather is commonplace) so a woman in a golf cart drove through the CG telling everyone to evacuate (not ideal - it wasn't safe for her and took time for her to cover the whole campground). Fortunately it all turned out OK but it was scary. My pet peeve with this facility has to do with walking to/from the CG/Cam-Plex. This is something you might do 2-4 times per day. Golf carts raced on the sidewalk on Boxelder Street expecting pedestrians to get out of the way. Furthermore there is no sidewalk on the entrance road between Boxelder Street and Cam-Plex so you are sharing the road with cars and golf carts. Obviously no one gave this much thought when designing the complex. Other than that, the facility served its purpose. I'm glad we went but don't plan to return any time soon. - GottaGoNow

Trailer park with RV parking at hilltop. Place clean but run down, washers/dryers not maintained, bath fixtures in disrepair, pot holes in road, many unlevel sites, trashy looking fence made from old pallets, too many run down campers, trailers and junk vehicles. WIFI is useless, office rarely open, noisy RR across street. - Cat Woods

We have stayed there twice now. They have some spots during the winter that have water. We found the management delightful and the park is quiet. It is a bit of a steep climb to get into the park, but that did not detract from staying there. We recommend it. - Dlsullivan

Great location, great potential but poorly managed or not managed at all! First appearance is old run down trailer park with a storage container facility and auto salvage yard. But if you go up the hill things do look better as there are shady RV sites. Mostly level, pull thrus are nice, back ins are tight, nice tent area but the pallet fence is very tacky looking! Rest rooms clean but run down and in need of repair. Common area clean. Laundry facility clean but poor ( washers don't spin well, dryers are slot machines.) Hope you don't mind self check in ( cash, check only) as the office hours are sporadic and seldom. Be sure to read all notes and reservations before choosing your site! Overall...overpriced!
Police were called out one night because a permanent resident was drunk and disorderly.. Next day the owner who lives on site stated that she saw the police and wondered why they were here but she did not come to investigate! As I stated earlier there is no one to manage the place and the owner appears to be incapable of running things. Desperately need a keeper here. Rules not enforced, kids and pets run wild. - Cat Woods

Went there because all the reviews said the other RV park in town is worse. No. This one is worse. Office was locked up with a sign on the door with instructions to self-register -- cash or money order only. They don't take checks. No one answered the phone # given, and no one ever called back. I didn't have cash on me and wasn't going to drive into town, get money order, and drive back. I went to the other RV park. It is nice. This one is dry & dusty, no shade, nothing that is level. - Old Mountain Man

This campground is located across the street from Cam-Plex. The parking spaces are gravel, there are small areas of grass between the spaces. Pull-throughs are 50 amp full hook-up, but tight. There appear to be long-term renters with rather junky looking stuff sitting around. It is surrounded by fields, so it is quiet at night. To summarize, this is a campground not a destination. We would not choose to camp here again. - Hoxiesgirl

We stayed at this campground because there were no other options, other than a truck stop. It is dirty, messy, smelly and expensive (for what you get). Most of the sites are seasonal campers, and they do not keep up their property at all. There was insulation all over and half built rotting decks on some of the seasonal sites. It felt like a very run down trailer park. We made sure all of the doors and windows were locked at all times. The sites were gravel and very close together. You need to share a water hookup, so we had to run the hose under our camper and add an additional 100 foot hose in order to reach the hookup. The sewer hole (and it was only a hole) was so small our hose wouldn't fit in, so you had to hold it down while emptying the tanks. Since the hole was so small, it bubbled up while you were emptying. Very messy and smelly. I would never stay here again. - socerbruse
