As others have stated, this is a "bare bones" park. We were told we could park in any of the available spaces and spent quite a bit of time looking at electrical sockets before we found one that was not broken. You also need to be aware that it is next to a truck stop and we found that they do run their engines constantly even at midnight. One major issue was that we exited through the truck stop driveway (which is connected to the park) and scrapped our front end which did cause some serious damage to our coach -- so you need to be careful when you leave. And when you are here DON'T MISS downtown Natchitoches. It is an amazing city! It makes the stay in this place worth the 5 points I gave it.

This park is a solid 8. I would give it a 9 if they had better rock on the grounds that did not dust up so much. If you are towing do not enter the park until you have unhooked. They are great at guiding you to your place, but do ask for time to unhook. We did not and are sorry we didn't. Despite the features listed for this park, there is no cable TV. They have a TV viewing room at the center, but there is no service at any campsite. We could have setup a satellite dish on a tripod here, but chose not to. If you have roof-top satellite it will probably not work in this park. But, after that, this park is great! The trees are well established and give great shade which is a real benefit this time of year. You feel like you are in a sales brochure. I took a number of pics of the rig here. We were in space 37 which is a large turn-around pull-through that is larger than three or four regular spots. All the spaces are large and you should have no issues with any of the back-in locations either. We are located just across from the community room. The internet is jerky, but it works. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount including tax. The Good Sam discount pays the tax on a base rate or $30/night. We would definitely stay here again.

All roads are concrete and the pads are concrete. All sites seem to have full hookups. We used our satellite so I am not sure if the cable TV worked or not. The laundry room (the one that is open) is clean and the washers worked well. When you use the dryers put in a dollar and let it run. Using less lengthens the time it takes to dry your clothes. If you are there on the weekend and have children along, you can buy them a wrist band for $9.75/day that gives them unlimited rides on 11 different attractions in the "flea market". The rate is great; $30 per night. This park should be considered as having no internet access. Another reviewer pointed out that they were working on it in December. It is still not functional in June. The sites are close together so you are forced to walk on the narrow lawn areas between the rigs which are hilly and awkward or walk around on an empty pad (if it exists). The sewers do not have a positive lock (you cannot screw in a retainer ring) so you have to put a weight on the end of the line to make sure it stays in the drain. You are just sitting on a concrete slab which gets a bit warm this time of year and all the trees are in the back where the shorter rigs and full-time residents live. But, if you are not staying long this is not a big issue. The park is located on the north-western corner of Houston which turns out to be quite a way from attractions like the Houston Space Center. You just need to factor this into consideration for the gas you will use to get to the attractions. Things that were different for us versus other reviews: We followed the directions given by the park on their website about how to get there and did not have any problems finding the sign and finding the correct entrance. There is a clear separation between the RV Park and the flea market. We never noticed any flea market personnel near any of the RVs in the park. The lot closest to the RVs is typically used by vendors who are far too busy with their setup to be of any nuisance to RVers. I only mention this since we were concerned about this issue given an earlier review on the subject. We found it a non-issue. We would stay in this park again if we were in this area again.

The first day we were here I was going to give this park a 6 rating just based on the really crummy internet connectivity. It is just awful. But, after I got over that shock and looked around, there is a lot to really like about this place. It has a great location for all the historical points of interest in San Antonio. There is a bus stop just across the street for visiting the city so you do not need to use your vehicle to get around. The grounds are very well maintained. All the roads to the sites are fresh blacktop and the sites are raked after every use so you get a "brand new" site every time. There are enough trees to provide some shade but enough open space to support those who have roof-top satellite dishes (just let the office know that is what you want). The sites are large enough that you do not feel closed in, and the back-in sites are plenty large enough for easy access. Everything in the park is within walking distance. The pool area seemed very nice and the laundry room was excellent. You do need a water pressure regulator to stay here (they have 160 pound pressure). But they have a shelf full and will gladly sell you one for around $10. Our rate posted is the standard rate for a back-in site which we paid for two nights. But, I strongly suggest you research the Texas Outside website for a really great discount coupon that is accepted by this park. We did and enjoyed a super discount for four days of our visit.

This was a return visit to this park and it was still as nice as the last time we were here. I really like the folks who run this facility. They are all top notch. Unfortunately, we were just passing through this time so we did not have time to take advantage of the uniqueness of this park. All sites are well maintained and there is easy access for a 40 ft motorhome. We did not inspect the bathrooms or laundry since we did not need them. But, given the condition of the park I would believe that they too are top notch. (Do schedule a visit to their observatory if it is open when you are here. It is a very unique experience.) We consider this one of our "must stop" places when we are in the area. The rate reflects a one night Passport America summer rate.

This park is an excellent place to use as a base for visiting Las Cruces, El Paso, and the Carlsbad Caverns. Although listed as family friendly, I would characterize this as a park for adults (versus family friendly) since there is no swimming pool or any activities for children on the grounds. There are trees on the property which make it far more attractive than the parks in Las Cruces. (We looked when we were up there.) Internet is included which is nice. But, don't expect it to be lightening fast; it isn't. The laundry rooms are VERY CLEAN. My wife really notices things like this and could not stop talking about how clean it was in the laundry. And the rates for washing and drying are EXTREMELY reasonable. We would certainly stop here again if we are in the area. Our rate is based on the $155 weekly rate which is a real deal for all you can see from this location.

This is a hard park to review. We only wanted a place to stop overnight, so this was a good choice. The electricity was good, water was good, which is all we need for overnight. People also seemed to be enjoying the pool. But, this park has one of the greatest dust levels we have ever experienced in any RV park. You really cannot drive over 3 MPH without raising a bunch of dust. We unhooked our car at the entrance to avoid getting dust all over it. A second issue it the location when there is a brisk wind. Being on a "hill top", the winds really whip through there at times. We ended up bringing in the bedroom slide to quiet the flapping noise of our slide out cover. But, for just a place to sleep, the $27 rate ($30/night less 10 percent for cash) had some real appeal. I would stay here again, my wife would not.

This is your typical Arizona campground; lots of gravel, cactus and few trees. The park office is only "open" in the morning during the summer so it is best to call ahead in the morning for a space. We lucked out calling in the afternoon because they were installing a new computer system and the manager was there that day. This park is a bit outside Yuma, but still close enough to do everything you want to do in town. This is our second visit and we would stay here again. Our rate is based on their summer 4 day rate.

We stopped here for an overnight stay but would seriously consider a longer stay if we found more to do around Dillon. The lady who runs the place is a real peach and gives you lots of ideas about where to eat in town. Spaces are large and easy to get to. The sprinkler system in our row must have been broken since the grass in all other areas was green and nicely mowed while ours was dead. Our rate reflects the veteran price.

This was a typical KOA park; great surroundings, nice spots, lousy Wi-Fi. The people who run this park are wonderful and appear to do a good job keeping the park clean. The park was full and we were assigned to one of their "overflow" areas which still had 50 amp electric and water. But, there was something wrong with the electricity at our site (L). This is the first RV park where our microwave kept turning off then back on. We disconnected it to avoid any damage. Our Surge Guard and Aladdin systems did not detect the specific nature of the problem.

The plus side of this park is that the setting is very quiet and surrounded by trees. This seems to be an ideal location for a family get-together which some of our neighbors were enjoying. Plus the crew who take you to your spot are excellent at giving you exact instructions while you back in. All the people who work here are just wonderful which makes the stay a nice event. They accept Passport America for Monday through Friday night. The rate posted does not reflect that discount. The negatives are that you are in the middle of nowhere with VERY limited Wi-Fi access. (For decent reception, you have to sit at a bench next to the small building where the Wi-Fi is located. In 50 degree weather this is not a fun experience.) We used this for a departure point for Yellowstone Park. We would not do that again; it is just too far away.

The name has changed to Prairie Pasque Campground. If you think of this as just an overnight stay this park provides all you need since they do have the basics, but little more. The picture on the website is a bit misleading for July visitors since the grass is mostly brown and replaced with weeds. Arriving at the park is a bit confusing since there is no one around to give you instructions and there are no instructions printed on the collection box. Fortunately, the woman who takes the reservations was nearby and could help us understand what to do. I helped others who came later and were as confused as I was. I would stay here again if I needed an overnight stop, but would have much lower expectations than I did as a first-time visitor. They claim to have Wi-Fi, but it did not work in the space we had.

As others have said, the drives to the spaces are narrow. But, the park is nice and the folks at the front desk are super! We stayed here twice (June and July) on our last trip from CA to MN. The trees can be a problem if you have satellite, but the cable channels provide most of the programs we are interested in. We will certainly stay here again in the future.

Like others have said, this is a nice park to stay in for visiting the Little Bighorn Battlefield. But, to call this park "family friendly" is an overreach. This is just your basic park with little to offer children. The Wi-Fi does not reach to the back of the park where we were parked. We were advised to come near the office at a table that was located there. This really does not match my definition of Wi-Fi availability. Pull-through availability is contingent on your time of arrival since many of the pull-through locations require passing through other "back in" locations to reach the "pull-through" spots. Were told on the phone that pull-throughs were available but arrived just behind the last "pull-through" customer. We were able to back in to the "pass-through" spots with no problems.

What a find! This place is great! We are just passing through this time, but will seriously consider spending some time in this park in the future. This is the kind of park where you want to spend at least a week. Sites are among the trees, but there are still breaks that allow you to setup a satellite dish. The sites are spacious, so there is no problem with slides. There are some sites that overlook the Boulder River. But, you can hear the water running over the rocks from just about any place in the park.

This park is under new management and is priced for oilfield patrons (owner's words; not mine). There were a few mowed sites that we noticed after we were all setup. The location they gave us was essentially weeds that were in serious need of mowing. We stayed here because we have family in the area otherwise we would have found an alternative location. This park needs serious work and seems over-priced for what you get.

We stay here every time we are in Las Vegas (which was frequently since we used to garage our RV in Henderson). Yes, the Wi-Fi used to be very bad, but they have recently redone the system and it really works great now. Every space is on a concrete slab and dust is minimal (unlike other parks in the area). Our rate reflects Good Sam/AAA discount. I definitely recommend this park.

This is a great place to stay to visit the parks. It is very close to Zion, and about an hour to Bryce. We found the sites to be wide enough for our 3 slide-outs and our site was as level as other parks. Just know that the free WiFi at this park is about your only contact with the outside world. Our cell phones (Verizon and T-Mobile) did not work in this area. The folks who run this park are really GREAT! I highly recommend this park.

This park was a real treat. We waited far too long to make reservations when leaving Quartzsite and Yuma was full. These folks let us park in overflow parking (30 amp, water & cable TV, no sewer, but free dump). Everyone in the park is very very friendly. It is a family park, but you will feel better if you are older; most here are. The bathrooms & showers are very clean and you want to use them because they have softened water unlike the tap which is very hard. We will definitely stay here again. Price is with Good Sam discount.

What a find! We had been staying in another RV park on Boulder Hwy. Not again. Every pad is concrete and the space between is grass or clean gravel. Our spot was near Boulder Hwy, but we did not notice a noise problem. There are individual bathrooms in the "bathhouses". They are VERY clean and spacious. The best I have ever seen. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. I cannot understand another reviewers "high" rate quote, since there is a standard rate sheet and nothing approaches the rates quoted. No Wi-Fi, but that is standard for Las Vegas.

We stayed here on our way to and from the Balloon Fiesta. This is our first KOA where the Wi-Fi actually worked! The sites are nice and wide. The park was full before the fiesta, and empty on the way back. This is one KOA that I would recommend. Our rate reflects the KOA Value Card discount.

This park is a bit out of town, but the rates make it very attractive. As noted, this is a no frills park, but it is very clean, has wide spaces and a new office and recreation room. The management is very friendly! We also used the weekly rate of $110 plus electricity. If we are ever back in Albuquerque we will DEFINITELY stay here again! I highly recommend this place.

Our site had cherries all over the ground and on the neighbor's rig. The neighbors wanted to get their 5th wheel washed, but the bees were so thick the washer person had to leave. They had been repeat visitors, but vowed that this was their last visit to this park. The water in the showers was fine, but at the sinks the "hot" water was luke warm at best. It felt cold when you shaved. As noted elsewhere the Wi-Fi is really non-operational. This seems to be consistent at KOA. The train track is only about 100 feet away from those along the Northern border of the park. So, when the East-bound train blows the whistle it is just like being in your rig. In addition, there is a switch right by the campground, so every wheel of every car makes a loud clunk as it passes. If you like trains, you will love this park! We picked this location since it was closest to our son's home. But, we will pick a different place to stay the next time we visit. My wife also noted that the trash bins were overflowing most of the time we were there. More frequent trash pick-up would be a real plus for this place. On the plus side, they had a movie on a very large blow-up screen every night we were there. We just spent so much time with our family we missed most of them.

This park is a bit rustic, but nice for a brief stay. Our rate reflects the 50amp price. You are sort of on your own until the manager show up at 6:00pm. There is no map of the park so you have to roam around to find the 50amp locations. (For the most part, the green boxes are 30amp and the gray boxes are 50amp.) We were concerned about another poster's remarks about the bathrooms. However, we found them to be very nice and clean. So, either there has been some major repair or the other person really stayed at another campground. The people we met in the park were very friendly. Overall, we were impressed with the park and would definitely stay here again.

Excellent park. The restrooms were the best we have seen at any park so far! The 8 ranking is for the outrageous price: $51 for 3 adults and 1 child. And that is with the 10% KOA discount! It is really hard to call KOA a family "friendly" campground when they charge for every person past 2. None of the other parks we stayed in did that. KOA claims the cost is because they have to track the other people, but they never asked for names or ages of the other people; so how would they track them? And once again, no Wi-Fi was available. That makes it 100% no Wi-Fi at 3 KOA parks. At least there were no wasps in this park like there were in Spokane Valley and Brigham City.

Rate includes 3 adults and 1 child with 10% KOA discount. As others have said, this park is VERY overpriced, and sites are very narrow. The pool looks nice and the restrooms are clean. We really wanted to stay at Golden Spike, but a large party filled up the park. I would seriously avoid this park unless, like us, you are left with no other alternatives. Like our last KOA, Wi-Fi does not work where we are parked: the park has Wi-Fi, just not in our site (S2). This will be my last KOA experience.

If you are anywhere in the area this is a "Must Stay" park. It is beautiful. I am typing this from a park bench in the park using their Wi-Fi which works beautifully. The restrooms and showers are the cleanest we have ever seen. Unfortunately our plans are to only stay here one night this time, but we will be back. We totally concur with the other reviewers.

Very nice park. We had a pull-through that was paved; a first for us. Benson is very small, so you are right in the middle of everything. There is an on-sight observatory that is really neat. (We were surprised that we liked it so much.) You get some train noise, but you do that everywhere in Benson. We thought the staff were very friendly and very helpful in giving us places to go and see. Rate reflects CCUSA discount.

Very nice park. We only stayed one night, but will definitely return in the future. It looks like they have a number of activities for people in the winter months. It is right next to a highway which is noisy during the day, but we did notice any problems with noise at night. Since we were only there for a night we did not notice any issues with rules. They even guide you to your space.

This park is hard to rate. If you want peace and quiet, especially in the summer, this is the perfect place. You are away from Tucson and miss typical airplane, train, or highway traffic noise. And we had a great space next to some desert brush. The owner is a terrific guy and gives you a great orientation about places to go and things to see. His orientation was very helpful to us. But, the park does need some serious work; especially the water slides that need to be removed (since they are non-functional now). Nevertheless, I would stay here again, versus another park that is just next door, but very bare. Our rate reflects the CCUSA discount.

The attraction of this park is the adjacent Sam's Town Casino and theaters. There is a Wal-Mart Supercenter right across the street for supplies. The park is clean and the sites are adequate. The park has a two-week limit and gives a Good Sam discount. The restrooms and showers are kept very clean. The monthly rate quoted is for a 70-foot pull-through which is their largest size. Rates for smaller spaces start at about $24 a night. We have used this park on numerous occasions while prepping our rig for travel.

This park is a sleeper. From the road it looks very rustic. But, everything you need is there. They even have a small store on location, a diner, and fuel is a very short distance away. The site we used (20) was so level we could have done without the levelers. The sites are really wide and each one includes a picnic table which would be really nice in warmer weather. (It was about 50 during the day and 27 at night when we were there.) This is the perfect place to stop on your way to the Grand Canyon or anytime you are in the area. We probably would have stayed a second night, but wanted to move on to miss the storm that was coming.

This is really a retirement village with mostly park model single wide trailers, but with some back-in and pull-through spaces for RVs. We used a smaller pull-through $225/wk versus a larger one at 255/wk. The hospitality is outstanding. They even guide you to your space. We were there to visit family and stayed two weeks. But, I would like to go back and stay a month. There is so much to do in the village; they give you an activities calendar packed with things to do and shows during the "snowbird" season. It is also central to the Mesa area so you are close to most Mesa venues. We will definitely stay there again in the future
