Campsites are off a large loop road which is on the USA (South) side of the overall Peace Garden. Most sites are “scalloped” drive-through, with the rest back-in. Sites were quite private, with lots of shrubs and trees. The trees were a bit of a problem getting to our site (19), but that was because we drive a 45’ motorhome and didn’t unhook our toad. It had been raining a lot and there was a fair amount of mud around our site, but it also had a small concrete slab base that we managed to get all six or our rear tires on. Water and 30 AMP electric were fine, but no sewers were available at the sites. The dump site at the exit from the campsite area was user friendly and allowed you to dump from either side of your rig, or from either direction. There was no cell or Wi-Fi reception at the site, but Wi-Fi is available at the building with the café. Cell reception is a problem in the entire area. The park is lovely and worth a visit. If you are staying in a big-rig, I advise unhooking and scoping out your site before pulling in. We enjoyed the park and would stay again.
While I wouldn’t think of this park for a longer stay, it is just fine for an overnight. There are flat, concrete pad sites with reliable utilities. We have a 45’ motorhome and tow a Jeep and we had room to spare. There is only gravel between sites and they are fairly close together, but there is a nice grassy area with tables close by. We had a bit of trouble finding someone in one of the two motels that manage this park, but when we did, he was quite helpful. We would stay again if we wanted an overnight stop in the area.
I heard good things about Garden of the Gods, but our stay didn't live up to them. After being very clear during our reservation that we were a 45’ motorhome and towing, and we would rather go elsewhere if they didn’t have an appropriate site, we were assured their “executive pull-through” sites would be fine. When we arrived we asked if we should unhook our jeep, but were told it would be no problem to tow it to the site. The site turned out to be between two trees which the guide waived us into only to find that a motorhome does not bend in the middle. We stopped before doing any damage to the coach, but the hitch was solidly crimped and could not be released. The attendant tried to help by stamping on the release lever and bent it flat. After sending him away and much subsequent effort to unhook, back out, and re-enter from a different direction, we found that the site was far too sloped to be able to level (it was off by feet, not inches). The space between rigs was so narrow that our picnic table had to be partly underneath our neighbors slide. And after being hooked up for about 30 minutes, one line of our 50 amp service failed and turned all of our electricity off. With the August heat our pets would have been in real trouble if we had been away. All this I might have expected for a $25 park, but our charge was $57 per night. Water and sewer were fine and the in-house barbeque was good. But we won’t stay again.
We have stayed at this park before, but it has been over two years, so we came back again. This year the park is pretty dry and a bit dusty, but access is good for big-rigs and space between sites is comfortable. While my sewer had no firm connection, the sewer cover held it down securely. All spaces are level. Electricity was at full voltage and water was fine and easily accessed. Our picnic table needed repairing or replacing. There is a nice pool that we didn’t use. Our site was toward the rear of the park, which made freeway noise almost unnoticeable (which I remember we did notice at our last stay.) There are restaurants within easy walking distance. We were happy with our stay and will stay here again.
