First, the owner is awesome! She was extremely helpful! She filled our propane tank and then drove it to our site. She also recommended the Lila Cafe on Route 66, which was good. We had an amazing slab of homemade carrot cake there, which I don't even feel guilty eating because it was sooo good. Laundry facility was great and is open 24 hours. This made our arrival back home less stressful because the laundry was already done. There is some train noise, but there is no crossing nearby so they don't sound their horns as they pass. We still got a good night's sleep. If you have your heater on, you probably won't hear it at all. This was a great place to stop for the night, dump and do laundry. If we were to pass that way again and need to stop for the night, we would definitely stay here again.

This goes down as one of our very favorite campgrounds. Pull-through site with a large woodsy area that included a picnic table and fire pit (plenty of trees). Much space between sites. Beautiful, peaceful setting within walking distance of shuttle bus stop and market. We originally booked Trailer Village but changed after reading the reviews. While Mather is in a much more beautiful setting, Trailer Village was definitely better than a "parking lot" as others have described. If we wanted hook-ups and never saw Mather, we would have been pleased. Having said this, we were thrilled to have changed to Mather.

We LOVED this campground. Beautiful red rock setting with a view of Monument Valley from some sites, but a short stroll from others. Hook-ups were great and the park was very quiet and clean. The only issue we had was that a street lamp on one side of our site kept us from enjoying a pitch black, night's sleep. There were two adorable cats who visited us as we were getting read to leave. This is an ideal spot for full-hookups. However, if we decide to dry camp next time, we will stay at a campground with an unobstructed view of Monument Valley.

We were going to dry camp in Quartzsite (enroute to Sedona) but due to the heat, we called this KOA while on the road to see about availability. The staff was very helpful. When we arrived, they assigned us to probably the best river view spot in the park. There was a grassy area and a little patio type setting at our site. Full hook-ups. This was great for a one night stop. The location was very convenient to the highway. I have nothing to complain about, but I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a night or two because there isn't much to do around Blythe. There was a gas line going across the river and the view on the other side wasn't great.

Beautiful campground-like setting with a creek flowing just behind sites 66-83. Full-hookups with inconsistent internet connection, but who cares in such a gorgeous setting?! Laundry room was clean and in good condition. Staff was very helpful and nice. Park is located within walking distance of shops, but be careful on Schnebly Road. We would definitely stay here again!

I'll start with the positives. The view and the people who worked at the front desk were AWESOME! We took a short bike ride along a beautiful boardwalk/trail and watched an amazing sunset! The laundry facility was good and the bathrooms were clean in the morning but filthy at night. Now here's the rest. The TV cable hook up literally fell apart when we tried to hook into it. They fixed it the next day, so again the people were great. During our last day here, a man in a beat up car pulled into an empty ocean view spot, drank two 32 oz. cans of beer and then drove off! Before he drove off, we tried to reach the park management but the office was closed and the park's 800 number couldn't reach anyone. My rating would have been lower but the view and the people were great.

First off, the view was spectacular! We had an ocean view full hook-up site. We could hear the sound of the ocean at night, which was so loud you couldn't hear the traffic on PCH most of the time. The sites were close together, and there was little room to hitch and unhitch without blocking the road. Also, the rules are very strict (no early arrival or late checkout, no cancellations, etc.). However, the people were very nice. The night host even let us look inside their new 5th wheel. The showers and bathrooms were clean, and the park is beautifully landscaped with flowers and plants. The site was clean and well maintained. Ah, but the ocean view and sound were the best features. The levels of the park are tiered and you can see the ocean from almost every spot (even mountain view spots). We will definitely be back again.

This was a beautiful and well maintained campground. You could pick any site you wish and even move at any time if you feel like it. They don't assign you a specific site. The park is right at the base of a mountain and the views are spectacular (reminded us of Zion in UT). The sunsets are beautiful. This park is very close to stores and movie theater but you would never know it when you are at your site. I purchased a bicycle and was able to ride it from the store to the site with no problem. It was that close. The staff wasn't the warmest but they were quite informative. The showers and bathrooms were immaculate (no quarters needed for showers). This is a great location if you are spending time in Tucson.

First off, we received exceptional service from Kim during our pre-trip planning stage. She was just as helpful in person once we arrived. This park had very spacious spots. In addition, they placed us where the spaces on either side of us were unoccupied. Beautiful rustic atmosphere and the stars were amazing at night. The laundry room was clean and well maintained. They had workout equipment and a beautiful hotel/resort style indoor pool. The location was great for Kartchner Caverns & Tombstone. This was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy!

The staff was friendly and the grounds were clean. Most sites have a view of the lake and mountains. This is located on National Park land, so be prepared to pay a fee to enter the park. We were immediately greeted by the Camp Host who helped us angle into the spot. They have everything but WI-FI. Their cable TV includes Showtime. It was a beautiful area and we will definitely come back again. Some of the sites are close together, but the layout of the park made it feel more spacious than it actually was. It was a short walk to the lake. There are many permanent mobile homes there and the staff advised us that they are vacation homes and that the residents can only live there half of the year. Most of those residence are retired people. What a lovely place for them to live for half the year!

We were misled by this park and therefore were unable to stay there. I spoke to a very nice lady on the phone a few days before we were thinking about staying there. She said to just call when we knew for sure and that they would fit us in for sure. I called a day or two later and was told by the man who answered the phone that there was a 5 day minimum that week due to the Jeep Safari...absolutely no exceptions. We had already changed our travel arrangements to include Moab and were now left without a place to stay. Fortunately, Moab Valley RV had a spot, although we would have much rather stayed at the KOA. I give them a 1 because one hand apparently doesn't know what the other one is doing, which left us scrambling. To the nice lady I spoke to initially (who left a very good impression), I am so sorry we didn't get to meet or stay at your park. "We did not stay in this park".

This was a true campground with large pull-through sites, full hook-ups, a fire pit and pine trees all around. It did not have the feel of an RV park. It was beautiful and very close to Bryce Canyon. We were pleasantly surprised that there was WIFI, although the signal was weak. The staff was friendly and their laundry facility was clean and well-maintained.

We would never have stayed here had we known what it was like, however, we were very grateful to get a spot (KOA misinformed us on their availability and turned out there was a 5 day minimum due to Jeep Safari). The spots were very tiny and we couldn't even fit our truck in the spot (we have a 26' travel trailer). Our neighbor campers had left their bikes and a big crate in our space. That neighbor also had a clothes line set up right where our window faced. We moved into the only other available spot instead, which was on the other side of that same unkempt neighbor. Having said this, this was a full hook-up, pull-through, level site. As long as we stayed in our trailer, it was fine. The WIFI didn't work consistently. I probably would have given this place a 5, but bumped them up due to getting us in at the last minute. Arches National Park was very close and amazing, so we still had a great time.

The view from our site (872) was incredible of the Pacific Ocean. We had a large pull-through site with a fire pit and full-hookups. They had live music on Saturday night (sorry to say, we couldn't make it). Although this was the most expensive campsite we have ever had ($90/night), it was worth every penny! The staff was wonderful, the facilities were clean (including laundry, pool/spa, etc.)and there is even a hiking trail. I would highly recommend Ocean Mesa and am sure we'll be back!

Convenient to casino. Clean bathroom and laundry facility. No warm and fuzzies from the staff, but they were nice enough. I heard them tell a new arrival that they were booked full the night before, but there were many open spots. Over-priced due to holiday weekend 3 day minimum stay.

If you want a full hook-up, pull-through site, don't bring any off-road vehicles. We were driving home from a long road trip and had our dirt bikes in the bed of the truck. We had to take a partial hook-up, back-in spot because they would not let us into the full hook-up/pull-through section simply because we had dirt bikes with us. The campsite did have a fire pit, which was nice. There was trash around the site, but it was very conveniently located to the Calico Ghost Town, which was great. All in all, the campground was basic, but okay.

Very clean, well-kept and organized RV park. Staff was great. Convenient location to Grand Canyon train depot. Surrounding snow-capped mountains and stars at night were beautiful. Only negative was the loud train(s) in early morning hours (3:30 AM or so). We would definitely consider staying here again!
