Staying at Sevier River RV Park
This new RV park is right off I70. They are doing a great job planning and building up this new park. Can't wait to cover back in a year and see. Ducks, turkeys and geese roam the grounds. We walk ed down to the river and fished for small fish. The owners are very friendly and stopped by multiple times to see if we needed anything. We will be back!
We selected this location based on activities we wanted to incorporate into our 2-week family vacation. The website was our only source of information and it was professionally done with a reservation process on par with well-established parks. We had never been to the Bryce Canyon area and were taking a risk with each location where we chose to stay. Our intent was to choose locations that gave everyone in the family a fun option as this would be our only vacation for the year. The Sevier River RV Park’s website gave us everything we wanted to see.
What we found instead was that the photos and activities listed on the website were either intentionally misleading or, at the very least, were not representative of this RV park. Rather than paved lots surrounded by trees, we found a newly graded, bare dirt lot. The listed amenities were only partially available and the activities listed were not available with the exception of the fishing. We found ourselves at a location that did not in any way match the sales pitch on the website.
To add insult to injury, I paid an extra$50 to lock in a specific RV spot which hadn’t even been graded yet. What we figured out after we arrived was this this is a brand new RV park that isn’t yet fully functional, in spite of what is represented on their website. The owners were very kind folks who didn’t seem to recognize that we had a reservation, let along paid additional fees to lock in a site that wasn’t ready. Based on the activities and presentation on the website, we’d planned a 3-night stay in a site toward the outer edge of the park under the trees. What we quickly decided was that we’d give it one night and see if we still wanted to stay. The only grudging accommodation from the owner was to allow us to use the laundry facilities at no charge.
While the fishing did not disappoint(5 brown trout all 10-12 inches) and the surrounding area was beautiful, there was nothing else, just dirt. Contrary to the website representation, there were no ATV rentals, horseback riding or white water rafting available. Because the fishing was good, we decided to stay a second night. It rained hard all night long and we woke up to a muddy mess. In spite of the cost, we left early that morning not to return.
While we had high hopes, to say this stay was disappointing is an understatement. I think in 4-5 years, this park will live up to the hype on the website but, in the meantime, the owners have an obligation to accurately represent their park. We walked away at an$80 cost because of the misrepresentation. I hope the owners update the website or at least communicate to those who make reservations that all may not be what it seems. We stayed in 5 different RV parks over a span of 15 nights and this was the only one that did not meet expectations. Should you choose to stay here, keep your expectations in check.
