One complaint: There is no park-wide wifi. Bring your own, hook up with Dish through the park and with a monthly fee and purchase of their modem, or sit at the lobby for free wifi. A connection cable is required at the laundry facilities and computer room. Praise: This is our sixth or seventh season here, and we love it! It's like coming home to our family every year. The amenities are outstanding, staff is wonderful, activities galore or chill if that's your thing. It is mine! The nightly rate I quoted is for our three-month stay this year. It's less for longer periods of time. Normally, we stay for five months. We have not found a nicer park anywhere in our travels!
So much work has been done at this RV park to improve the ambiance and make it a pleasant place for RVers! There are also new cabins in place, and they're still working on the park improvements. We stayed here two years ago, and this year requested a site overlooking the river. It's awesome! So quiet and close to everything we need. The one comment I will make is, the WiFi leaves a lot to be desired. In the morning hours, it's okay. At night, pretty slow almost to a crawl and is very subject to weather fade. If they fix their WiFi service, I will rate it higher. We will definitely stay here again in another two years when we return!
I enjoyed Bee Lazee! Looks like an older park that's been reworked for big rigs. We had to back up to get ours out, but that's no biggy. There is a lot of grass around: in between sites and elsewhere which is nice. There's a nature walk out into the woods if you dare to go and fight mosquitos. Well maintained park, clean, pool covered at night to keep it clean. Looks like many of the sites haven't been used for years. Don't know why. WiFi is okay, nothing special. Relatively quiet considering it's right on the highway.
WiFi is terrible in this park! It fades in and out. Located right on the highway: noisy. Across from business with 18-wheelers rolling in and out all day. Worker bees living here come in and out like the road is a freeway. Dust flying everywhere. Two washers and dryers. Wouldn't stay here again. Would go back to previous park to get away from the dust, have better WiFi, and cable TV. That said, the sites are fairly level with grass in between and newer picnic tables.
Beautiful setting! Close to the Princess lodge, gift store, etc. Unsecured Wi-Fi works great, and Verizon cell service is good. Wide spaces for RVs. However, the street we entered on is one-lane with vehicles parked along it sideways in front of their rigs. Getting a big fifth-wheel in was TIGHT! The laundry room has 6 washers & 6 dryers, small folding table. Would be fine for RV park guests but locals come in and use it, too. Seems to be the only show in town. Too many people using this small facility to make it easily accessible for guests of the park. We would stay here again.
Nice, clean park with grass between sites and room to park beside your rig. It's quiet at night, but small planes take off periodically during the day from a nearby airport. Not a problem for us, just people having fun! Wi-Fi is slow at times. Close to shopping and Kenai NWR, which is the reason we're here. If we are ever back up here, we would stay again.
Loved this park and the town of Homer. We had a beach-front site, and there's always something going on when you're on the water. Fantastic views! Great latte's, nice laundry, very helpful staff. Took Homer Air out to Katmai NP to watch bears. Would stay here again in a heart beat!
Grass in between sites! Real grass! First time since we hit Alaska. The Wi-Fi is great! Lack of cable TV is not a problem. Lots of books to read and things to see in the area. The view out of our rear window is spectacular of some of the mountains in the Alaska range! The laundry room (3 washers, 3 dryers) is immaculate. Easy drive into Palmer for shopping (Safeway, Freddies, Walmart, etc.) The owner is very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.
Typical gravel sites but has shrubs separating sites. 7.5 miles north of Denali NP entrance. Close to Copper Center (Denali Princess hotel) for gift shopping, etc. As with the other northern RV parks we've stayed at, tannins turn the water orange/brown/yellow. Totally non-toxic, just an FYI. Right on Hwy 8, 18-wheelers & Harleys day and night. However, after a long day of sightseeing and shopping... Not too many other options, though. We would stay here again.
This is a great little campground! Roads are in good shape and so are the sites. Grass in between sites, albeit sketchy in places but winter has recently left so they're gearing up. Good Wi-Fi, so-so cell services with Verizon but that's not their problem. It's very quiet here, which is something we look for. No satellite service, trees around the perimeter. We would stay here again.
Still learning what to expect north of the lower 48. Gravel parking lot w/hook-ups, not level, no grass, laundry room not open yet, Wi-Fi unsecured, glad our satellite system worked. This park is on Hwy 1 ... noisy during the day. A few planes flying over in the am from nearby airport. Didn't hear anything last night, though. We were so tired that we crashed. Treed and open sites available, which is nice.
Sand and gravel parking lot with pedestals for power, etc. Tight quarters. Wi-Fi works, we're told, if you go sit on the porch at the office. Thankful we could connect with our satellite system because we couldn't with the park's Wi-Fi. Within walking distance of the Sign Post Forest.
Welcomed sight after a long day of driving! Typical of parks in the north, mostly gravel/rock with a little grass thrown in between spaces. Restaurant is decent enough. They cooked! I didn't have to, that's all that counts. ;=) WiFi is slow, but our satellite system worked! Yea! We would stay here again.
Right next to rodeo grounds. Horses in barns adjacent to RV park, and stalls/corrals available for overnighters from what I understand. Gravel parking spaces for RVs, but relatively level and clean. Enjoyed walking through the barns and watching activities as the contestants prepared for the upcoming stampede. It's located below the highway and fairly quiet. We would stay here again.
Tight spaces. We had to jockey to clear our neighbor's slides. Dusty and undesirable for us. We won't stay again. Wi-Fi worked for us because we were up front. No ability to get satellite internet service. I saw one couple sitting on a bench near the office to get Wi-Fi. If you're in need of RV service, Happy Trails RV Sales & Service did an outstanding job for us.
The park is well kept and everyone is friendly; however, the noise from traffic and the trains outweighs the convenience of the restaurant. We've stayed there several times in the past but won't stay here again.
If this park had a pool, I would give it a 10. The owners are very friendly, the park is clean and maintained considering what the winter has been like there, and it's quiet at night. Great view of the mountains from our site. We would happily stay there again if we were in the area.
Finally! A nicely maintained KOA! Friendly staff! Too many trees for using our satellite system, and their WiFi didn't work really well sometimes. One would think it would be noisy in the middle of the city, but it wasn't bad. There is a train nearby and the KOA is under the flight pattern for SLC airport. Didn't bother us, though.
Right across from the entrance to Mesa Verde NP. We used a pull-through site for three nights, and it's HUGE! An 18 wheeler could park in these sites with lots of room left over. Great satellite internet access. Right on the highway but quiet! Close to shopping and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again if we were to come back.
Wide open spaces, literally! We feel like we have an acre of property to ourselves. It's nice and quiet yet close to shopping, etc. Nice lake within a short walk, peek-a-boo views of the Rocky mountains. Lots of sites are satellite friendly; however, the people taking reservations don't know which is which. We were on site 89, and it is not satellite friendly, though we got it by almost backing off the pad. We would stay here again!
Price seems a little high, but it's the only show in town. SO quiet! New owners it appears, and they are working their tails off to bring this place up to snuff. New cabins going in, excellent WiFi, fair-sized RV sites, landscaping going on. Stayed for a week and would stay here again and again!
We have stayed at this park several times before, but it has become a private park for Xanterra employees with only 8 sites available for the public. The public sites are out of range for the WiFi and there are trees that block the use of one's own satellite internet system. We asked for a better site but that request was denied even though there were empty sites available. We drove in and right back out again, and won't be back. Too bad! The only saving grace for this dirt pile was backing in on the river.
We have stayed at Durango on our way to and from Arizona since they opened and thoroughly enjoyed our stays. Today we pulled into our site and were greeted by barking dogs on three sides of us! We talked with the managers, and they handled the matter promptly. We had a quiet night, and will ask to be placed away from dogs in the future. The managers said they will also mark our record about our preference and will be more aware. Additionally, they will try to place rigs according to pet(s) on board vs no pets on board. If people are going to have dogs, they have to at least be as smart as the animals and considerate of those who choose not to have an animal. There were several open spaces. One of those without dogs nearby should have been suggested.
Quiet at night, concrete pads for RVs, WiFi works great, everyone is friendly. "Grassy" areas between spots isn't grassy and turns to mud in the rain. Woodall's directions are wrong. Call the park for directions. Close to Brookings for shopping, and about 45 minutes to Gold Beach where we took a ride on Jerry's Jet Boats. Whatta blast! Would stay here again.
Love, love, love it! Concrete everywhere means no needles, mud or sand to track in. Spaces separated by islands of shrubs. No trees to get in the way of our satellite dish. QUIET! Close to the dunes and town. Would definitely stay here again.
On a positive note, the place is really quiet at night; however, we won't stay here again. Too many trees (not satellite friendly), due to the trees the site was muddy even though the sun was shining. Park's WiFi is way S L O W, and cable TV isn't clear. Not our cup of tea.
Quiet at night! Lulled to sleep by croaking frogs. The road is too narrow and winding for our tastes, plus there was dog excrement in front of our trailer in the morning. No, we don't have a dog, but there were a couple that were allowed the run of the place. We won't stay here again.
After too many nights of trying to sleep next to the freeways, we found this park a great relief and spent 5 nights. It's so quiet! Clean grounds, friendly owners. Clear shot at the southern sky for satellite dishes. Laundry facility has two washers and dryers is only downside.
Nice, quiet park. Open shot at the southern sky for satellite dish. Two comments: "no public display of alcohol permitted" per the rules. And, if the water pressure in your rig seems low, clean or replace your filter. The park is on a well with high mineral content. Water tastes good, but it plugs the filter up. We cleaned our filter every couple of days. We would stay here again.
Upside: Wide & long pull-thru sites, our site was level, grass, clear southern exposure for satellite dish, close to shopping, relatively quiet. Downside: Awakened by the free-roaming chickens in the park crowing before dawn, followed closely by the geese honking in the "duck pond." Ask for site away from duck pond.
Upside: park on gravel, but grass with picnic table, pools with slide and toys for kids, good restaurant and bakery, big nice laundromat, friendly staff, open sites for satellite TV and/or internet. Downside: some frontage road and freeway noise.
Upside: good restaurant, Dairy Queen next door, friendly staff Downside: 18-wheelers rolling around, freeway and highway noise, train nearby, laundry is at motel not at campground and not an easy walk with a full basket of laundry, dusty
After reading previous reviews, we were very pleasantly surprised. We requested a pull-thru, and they are in a very nice part of the park. Yes, there are less desirable spots, but the pull-thru area is nice and has a view of the mountains to boot. The sites are grassy, it's quiet and people were having a blast cooling off in a pond adjacent to the office that appears to be part of a river. There is a nice play area for children. We would definitely stay here again if we were going to visit this area.
Grassy sites, friendly owners. Extra charge for WiFi ($2/day) and cable TV ($1.50). We were in site 27 and our kids were in site 26, which worked like buddy sites where both of our doors opened to a common middle area. Great! No problem with awnings or slides, lots of room. Pretty quiet here. Beach access across the street for foot traffic. Vehicle beach access is a short distance in either direction.
Guessing on nightly rate, don't have info right in front of me. Check with the park. We love this park and have stayed here 4 or 5 times since buying our trailer in 2004! Back in on the Yellowstone river and watch the birds and animals on the hills. Watched a fisher across the river catch a dozen fish or more. Close to the entrance to Yellowstone. Owners and staff are so friendly. WiFi is now available, which is a big plus! They're planting more trees, too.
New owners August 2005. Nice and helpful folks! Typical small KOA. Tent sites look okay to us, though we didn't use them. Sites for RVs are mostly gravel. Big rig access depends on the driver! LOL We didn't have any problem getting our 35' fiver pulled by one-ton doolie in. If you have a satellite dish, ask for a site with clearance through trees. Call ahead especially for large rigs. Sites available on the waterway.
