We found this campground pretty much as advertised by the previous raters, with only 2 exceptions. One rater stated “WiFi is a joke”, we found that not to be true, we had a strong signal and response time that is typical for most campgrounds. Our complaint was with the sewage connections: ours was more than 1 foot out of the ground, as many others were, as most of you know liquid does not run uphill, we had to hand drain our hose, but we survived.

This is a pretty large campground, 300+; it is pretty nice and should be rated higher than I’m doing, if they could straighten up their act. It’s clean, apparently well maintained, a couple of really great employees. Like all campgrounds they have rules, but unlike most campgrounds they just don’t follow them. Examples: “No golf carts.” Bring them, they are here and they don’t say a word. They have fixed times when children are not allowed in the pool so adults can swim in peace: not enforced. Quiet hours: forget it, they don’t exist. Trash is a big problem: dumpsters need to be emptied more frequently, on weekends they need to be emptied at least twice. They empty them on Thursday, then again on Monday, but by Saturday there is trash everywhere because the dumpsters are full. While we were here a dump station overflowed, it was 3 days before anyone even looked at it and another 2 days before it was repaired, leaving a whole bunch of smelly days. They could do much better.

This IS a very interesting and curious campground, but in the end it embodies what family camping is all about. A campground of over 350 sites, where it appears that more than 3/4ths of those are local campers who have rented for the year and are in for the weekend or an occasional week. This 3/4ths of the campground are very nicely laid out, they have very large and secluded sites, but the vast majority of these sites have no sewage, there is quite a bit of blue tub hauling here, I’ve never been to a campground that has FOUR dump stations before. For those sites that are open for the traveler, they present somewhat the same large and semi secluded plan as to the rest of the camp. FEW are 50 amp, few have sewage, but those that do are quite nice. WiFi is good where it is available (around the office), cable TV is good, most roads are gravel, most sites are level and gravel. There are 2 ways into this camp, do not follow your GPS, follow the instructions in Travel Life, we came by GPS and it is a bit hairy. In the end, this really isn’t a travelers campground, this is a community campground targeted to family camping. This is something rarely seen, especially for a KOA, we commend them and this is from a person who has very little positive to say about a KOA ever.

You know, when this place is finished it will be a 10!!!! They have spent much money here; they need to spend more. Beautiful setting, built into the side of a mountain; get here early or the higher up you'll be. Sites are really good, large, level, all gravel. WI-FI is acceptable, there is no TV, Nada, no cable, no local and your dish just might not make it at all. The clubhouse broadcasts are all NASCAR races on a 20' screen.

Actually, this is a nice little campground for a KOA. We normally don't like to stay at KOAs because most of them rent 80% of their sites to permanent transient or migrant workers at monthly rates: there is none of that here. It looks as if only the KOA staff themselves had units in this park. They have good WiFi and cable TV, with small but mostly level sites, with good shade in the right places. It’s very clean, the staff is very nice. I would have rated it a 10, except for the bathrooms, though clean, are just plain old and warn.

The grounds here are nice, with clean level sites, though somewhat small. Shade trees are not really available for motorhomes, those sites are pretty much in the sun field and the setting sun is directly into the windshield. The WiFi is basically non-existent, it is very slow, slower than what I remember dial-up speed to be. It really isn't worth the money.

This place has everything, except picnic tables and shade!!! Clean, secure, no stone roadways or sites, happy campers abound, absolutely no obvious 'permanents'. Loved it, will stay here again when we are in the area.

Actually, this campground is basically a parking lot, no more. It is a few acres, off exit 163, that has been cleared and completely covered with crushed lava rock, interspersed with a few small trees with electric, water and sewer hookups. No amenities period, you’re here, you park, if you haven’t brought it with you, you’re not going to find it here. There is NO GREEN HERE! It is mostly inhabited with ‘permanents’, in very old units, that have been here for awhile. The operators are quite nice, and try to be accommodating within their limits, bathrooms are clean. WiFi is NOT. Very, very spotty, if it’s there at all, most times it didn’t even work at the office, where the antenna was, let alone at our site, which was at the far end of the parking lot, AND IT’S VERY, VERY SLOW. This is a Passport camp and maybe that explains everything, you get what you pay for. We would not stay here again. Actually the KOA at exit 167 where we stayed 5 years ago is MUCH better, and we hate KOAs.

This is a nice little campground, between Bryce and Zion, people are great, it's clean and quiet, wi-fi is good, there is nothing to do beyond basic camping (which was great for us, if you have kids, it should be avoided). There is no cell service in Glendale, period. Owners of land here are looking for BIG bucks to build a tower and they are apparently not going to get it!! We were here for a week!

Another old KOA. Roads are gravel and fairly narrow, some site have concrete tire strips, most others ar just gravel and most are fairly level. Very nice native NM landscaping. The 50 amp sites look to be an add on and those roadways are smaller yet than the 30 amp. Park is quiet except for the heavy equipment construction behind the park that starts at 0630am. You are right in the heart of Taos. WiFi works well at your site.

I am rating this previously unrated campground to warn 'big rigs' that this is not for you even though they advertise it as such (it's a Passport campground 26 miles from Taos). This 'looks' like a rather small rustic campground as we walked through it. We did not stay there because we could not have gotten our rig into the campground safely.

What a GREAT place, very clean and well kept. Beautiful sunrises! Easy in, easy out. DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS. It will make you turn on Rt 14 off of Rt 599. You need to go straight there instead. WiFi is excellent, only drawbacks its dirt roads, but you are in New Mexico and most of them are.

Very poor park, dusty, small sites, difficult to get a 40' in, wifi non-existant, look for a better place to stay.

Like all old KOAs, it's OLD. Many old 'permanent' trailers around. Plus a dozen or so 'permanent' house trailers. Small cramped roads make it a bit difficult for large motorhomes to navigate. WI-FI spotty. Friendly staff, a nice gaggle of ducks that visit often with a nice pond, overnighter only!

This is a great campground, it's our 3rd time here. You can't ask for a prettier view East of the Mississippi. Secure, clean, quiet, out of the way, easy access from I40. Motorhomes are right on the Mississippi River, can't miss the barge traffic if you tried!!!!

An OLD, OLD KOA!!! Good for a night stopover only, mostly permanents there. They said they had Wi-Fi, but it was none existent for us, local only, no internet!

This is a nice park for an overnight or 2 days at the most, close to Andersonville Civil War Prison and POW Museum, a worthwhile visit. WiFi works reasonably well, cable is good, transients are nonexistent, staff is helpful, camp store is nonexistent. Mostly gravel roads, all gravel sites. If your in need of RV repair here, contact Mid GA RV Service, 1.478.714.3374, Pete Hilton is on top of his game, quick, efficent and very knowledgeable. We have been here 3 times now.

Actually, we were not looking forward to staying here given the previous reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. Yes it's old, yes the sites are sandy, yes some of them are small, but we saw no instance where anyone was unable to put out their slides, that's an untruth. One must keep in mind where you are: Key West, the whole place is SMALL. While we don't rate it the same as Bluewater Keys, where we stayed for the last Fantasy Fest, but it's not that bad. Staff was excellent, Wi-Fi was excellent, night time security was in place. Went to the office to report a broken cable connection at our site and before we returned to the MH, a staff member was already working on it. You don't get that at many places.

KOAs continue their downward spiral with me and this place is no exception. The grounds are nice, the worker bees are nice, without all that follows I would have rated them a 9-10. Our experience, despite being only 1/4 full, they stuffed us into a backin spot that was good enough for a 25' trailer, we are in a 40', right at the entrance way, my front bumper is at the curb, my rear jacks are in the grass behind the pad, the tree behind the MH tore up the roof because it wasn't trimmed properly, the sewage run was uphill, requiring you to hand wrestle your hose, cable is $6, WiFi is pay via Nomad, great when we finally got hooked up, but the 1st day we tried and couldn't, spent an hour on the phone with Nomad tech staff, they were unable to resolve, later that evening were were told by another KOA worker bee that WiFi had been down for a few days, yet no one in the office seem to know about that when we checked in.

You have to love this place for an overnight: right off I-75 (easy on, easy off), right next to a Harley dealer, diesel across the street. WiFi is great, owners are wonderful!

Good in and out park, not much shade, good for an overnight, they are very concerned with YOUR electric, you get a full page handout on what you may or may not know. WIFI is fair, you get a full page and 1/2 of disclaimers about why it isn't working, they also cut you off after an hour.

Truth in advertising/deceptive advertising?? When a park offers a service, they should offer it completely. WIFI, that thing that has taken us from the shabby little room with a phone connection, to the comfort of our own RV. This park says they have WIFI, they really don't, they have 2 antennas, one at the bath house the other in the big rig site. By there own admission the only place you can get WIFI to work, is in the office. An office which seemed to be closed much more then it was open.

FINALLY a KOA that has all it's stuff together. On this 3 month trip we have been at WAR with corporate KOA and there WIFI service, this is the FIRST KOA of 8 (that we stayed) were we have connected to WIFI. Corporate says it's the local campground problem, but corporate still has their name hanging out on the shingle, they refuse to assume any responsibility, THEY SHOULD. What happened here was that WaKeeney had their head turned on straight (instead of the restof the campgrounds that were sitting on their upturned thumb), instead of saying, just 'click' on it, THEY provided written instructions and in those instructions you will find 'another' step that actually does take you to connectivity. All those other KOA idiots should contact WaKeeney and acquire a copy of their instructions, even they might be "enlightened". At any rate, this is also the VERY FIRST KOA we have ever been too that DID NOT have a 90% of the sites taken up by 'permanents', THERE WERE ZERO of them!!!! Made for a VERY, VERY comfortable stay. This place is clean, sites are level, access roads are great. There is no shade, but there is no shade in Kansas anywhere!!!! WILL stay here again!

Best park in the Colorado Springs area, wasn't our original choice but after reading rv reviews we changed. We then rode by and through all the other parks, the reviews have it CORRECT, the rest of them are urban jungles. This park is a bit out there, in mileage from the 'downtown' parks, but it is worth the trip. No cable, 1 TV channel with antenna, satellite depends on your site, WIFI was great. Much, much better than what the others offer!!!!

View is spectacular, pull throughs are long and level, great base camp for doing the Rocky Mountain National Park and other activities around Estes Park CO. WIFI seems to work well, cable has a good picture. The only drawback is that access roads are dirt, but they are wide, 2 units can pass on each road, you don't see that in many places and sites are gravel that really could be redone. Infrequent trees, this is a sun spot.

This is a very nice park, staff is excellent, as soon as you pull in someone is out to greet you and if you have reservations they take you immediately to your site. Sites are not really large but are adequate and level. They have a BBQ dinner each night, really cheap and the brisket is wonderful. WIFI and cable are excellent.

NOT GOOD!!!! Price WAY TOO much for this urban jungle. Were going to spent 3 days here, spent 1 night, left a dawn. This is an example of what a campground shouldn't be, no trees, no grass, right on top of each other, very difficult entrance, very difficult exit, old run down, should really be bulldozed over, nothing positive here, would rate it a ZERO but rvparkreviews doesn't go that low. Try another place!!!!

I don't know what Riverside looked like, but I can assure you that nothing of it exists today, they had to tear everything down, because everything is now brand new, restrooms & shower were superb, LONG pull throughs (there was one you could put 2 42' in. ELK in campground, right on the Wind River, only bad was WIFI, didn't work.

The site is near 'Craters of the Moon' and 'EBR-1', good grassy sites, good shade trees, WITHOUT A DOUBT the cleanest restrooms (called latrines here) we have ever seen and I think that you will ever see (I'm ex-NAVY and I can appreciate the military approach to life, believe me, you could eat off these floors), this is a GREAT place when in this area, HIGHLY recommended.

Nice clean park, quiet, large grassy sites, good gravel access roads and sites. WIFI is poor, you get it in the morning around 7am for about an hour, after that forget it. Whatever you do while you are here, eat at the Snake River Grill and eat the local alligator, steelhead trout and sturgeon, AWESOME.

No cable, no TV reception, to many trees for dish, and qualifies for the world record of "the smallest bathrooms". I'm 5'10", 170lb and could not fit in the toilet and shut the door at the same time. WIFI is a new addition, (it's a pay for), don't bother.

Very small park, VERY CLEAN, in fact SUPER CLEAN, noise others complain about are the RR tracks right out back, hey that's part of camping, that's part of the great Northwest, if you don't want that kind of noise, STAY HOME. Cable is great, WIFI is great, close to everything that you want to see in this area of America! What else are you on the road for?

Very clean, quiet, near interstates 495 & 5, enforced speed limit of 8.5 mph (watched them stop several vehicles), sites and access roads are tight, cable TV is only 12 channels, reception is mostly bad, WIFI is LinkSpot, expensive ($25 per week), but does work reasonably well.

STAY AWAY FROM HERE! No cable, no TV reception, have WIFI to ONLY 2 sites. 1st time in over 30 years we locked up everything and never ventured out. Were going to stay a few days, left the next morning. Staff is unbelievable, snotty, big time attitude, absolutely could care less about you or your needs. This is the worst place I have ever stayed in my life. It is also the LAST KOA I will ever stay in.
