Thousand Trails membership park now owned by Encore system so public sites available. We are members thus the $0 nightly rate. We stayed here many times from 2008-2010 and were happy, but this time found it was less than adequate. First site we tried was narrow and not level and we could not get DirecTV. We moved to riverside and still could not get DirecTV. Other campers came over and said since the trees grew higher almost no one could get satellite TV, and there is no over-the-air TV. Road traffic and railroad noise much louder than in 2010. Campground store seems to be gone. Public laundry available. We will probably not stay here again as it is 4+ miles down a narrow 2-lane road. Campground is not near anything.

Pleasantly surprised. We got a nice back-in site with full hookups. Satellite TV worked great; AT&T card worked great. Pool open. Loved the quiet as it is off-season until school is out. It is about 30 minutes to Leavenworth. Trimming needs to be done on some of the roadways. Staff friendly. We would definitely stay here again. This is one of our membership parks in Thousand Trails and we don't pay - thus the $0 nightly rate.

Great park. We had a view of the golf course and also played 9 holes - cost is $10 and $5 a person to ride the cart. Quiet, long, level pull thru sites. We will definitely stay here again.

First night is still free. We agree with previous comments. Fine for an overnight. Long pull thru site and no need to unhitch towed vehicle. We set up and watched the high school baseball team practice which was fun. We would stay here again if we were traveling thru this area.

Very disappointing. We booked a 50 amp site and it should have been unavailable as it was so rough that we could not level. The 50 amp box was so close to the ground that my husband had to be on his knees in the dirt to hook up the plug. Gave it a 2 because it was quiet and the staff appear to be working to improve things. Sites are pull thru but short so have to unhitch towed vehicle. We would not stay here again.

If we had read the previous review with a rating of 2 we never would have stopped for the night here. Glad we camped here! The office staff was super friendly and we got the pull-through site. Long level site. Other residents very friendly. We saw no loose dogs. Maybe since it was January the seasonal people were not in residence; it is obviously a very busy place in the summer months as it is a membership campground with a lake with paddle boats, a large playground for children, miniature golf, and a pool. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

We would not recommend this as a one-night stay as it is miles off I-10 and the traffic on US 27 was very heavy. Office staff very pleasant. Beware that sites available for Passport America are Elect/Water crossover (single power pole for two sites) so you may have to run your electric and water under your unit. Rate of $17 plus $3 extra for 50 amp service using Passport America. Nice site, long and level with a view of the river. Quiet, except that with a crossover site we were right next to our neighbor and their hot water heater turned on and off all night, waking me up. We would probably not stay here again.

Good park for one or two nights. We agree with previous comments. Our towed car scraped on the way out of the driveway. Check in staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Nice, quiet place to relax for a few days, especially mid week. Friday night the families arrived and the place was crowded, but we did enjoy watching everyone have a great time. Horseshoes available if you wish to play. A walk to the beach but worth it. Improvements being made. While we were here many of the picnic tables were swapped out with new tables. The bridge mentioned in a previous review appears to have new wood boards. We have no little one to use the playground, but it looked to be in good shape. Clubhouse very small and there was no WiFi. We could not make our ATT cell or air card work at the site, but the cell phone did work at the beach. We will definitely return here again. We put $1 in as price as we are Thousand Trails members.

Our third stay here. Beautiful view of the golf course from our site. This campground is for self-contained units only. We received a coupon for a free glass of wine at the restaurant for each of us. We make this a stop on our way west each year to play golf and have a good meal in the restaurant. We are planning to stay here again.

This is our 2nd time at this park. Staff in office is very helpful. They have recycling for your plastics! Sites are level and long enough so that you don't have to unhitch. Some road noise. Great views!!

The best thing about this park is the pet park which is grass and fenced for my dog to exercise in. Otherwise, the pull thru sites are short and narrow. You must unhook your tow vehicle. Dusty, but that is NM. We would stay here again in a pinch but probably would stay in Farmington, NM instead.

Nice campground. Fairly level sites. Our AT&T cell and air card worked fine. We were able to get DirecTV and antenna TV. Quiet!! We enjoyed the peace and quiet of this location. We are thousand trails members - thus the $1 rate listed.

Nice park. Our dog loved the 2 dog parks. It is close to town; thus there is road noise. If you are a light sleeper wear earplugs. The staff were great! We would stay here again.

Great park. Welcome staff very courteous and helpful. Spacious, level sites. Three hot tubs and swimming pool. Challenging mini golf. Laundry is $1.25 to wash and $1.00 to dry. We stayed here as Resorts of Distinction members. We would stay here again.

We are Resorts of Distinction members so the $7 price is the daily "utility charge" we had to pay upon check in. Very tight back in site. Our neighbors had their slide open which extended into our site. Road noise woke me at 6:30 am. No AT&T cell or internet coverage, and their Wi-Fi was not working. We paid $14 for the utility charge for 2 nights, but left after one night. We will not stay here again.

We are Thousand Trails members. Nice enough park for Thousand Trails - not a wow. Adult Lodge needs some maintenance. We had a long pull through site which was fine - if park is full the sites are close together and you would have no privacy. Since this was at the end of September all the occupied sites were spaced out. No AT&T coverage. We used Wi-Fi in the adult lodge which was adequate but slow. Very difficult roads to get here, but we wanted to visit Yosemite thus we stayed here. We would not stay here again due to the lack of cell or internet coverage.

This campground reopened on May 13th after being closed for 3 years. Has level sites, some are located on the stream side. It is a beautiful park featuring 1,445 feet of saltwater shoreline on Puget Sound. Located halfway between the cities of Tacoma and Seattle. Reservations can be made on-line.

Price is $32 without Passport America discount of $14 for a pull through, 50 amp, full hook up. Sites are long enough that it was not necessary to unhook the car, but the host had to pull us right to the front of our site. Be warned: we said we had a cat and a dog and got charged $1 for an extra pet! Somewhat noisy location, but it didn't disturb us unduly. The park is very nicely maintained. Staff were very courteous and helpful. We would stay here again but not tell them about the cat.

Our second stay here. Both times it was for one night. Standard KOA with very courteous, friendly staff. Our site was fairly level. Sites are close together, but again, fine for an overnight stay. Price was for long 50 amp, pull through, full hook up. No need to disconnect car from our 35' rig. We had no trouble driving through the campground to our site with the car hitched up. We would stay here again on our way north or south on I-5, as it has very easy access.

This basic campground is a "work in progress" with long level pull-through sites. The sites are close together; however, campground was only l/4 occupied so we all had space between us. Easy 50 mile drive to Wichita. Very interesting museum just outside the campground that is a "must see". Friendly staff. Next to office is pizza take out parlor run by the same staff. Pizza very good. We originally planned a one night stay but extended to two to visit the town of Arkansas City which has an interesting history as the Last Gateway to the Old West with their role in the Cherokee Strip Land Run, and a nice architectural walking tour of their National Register Historic Commercial District. We would stay here again.

Nice, nice campground. Level concrete pad with lots of space between sites. We had a water view of the dam and lock and enjoyed watching boats go through the lock. Staff very friendly. Quiet. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Nice campground with inexpensive golf if you play. Staff very friendly. We enjoyed the view of the golf course from our campsite. Level site, quiet area. No train noise! This stay was just one night, but we hope to return for a longer stay in the fall to enjoy the golf course.

Great park! We found them through Passport America and are we glad we did! Office staff was very friendly and told us the former owners are now back running the campground. RV sites have space between each other. Most are long pull through sites. The modern bathrooms are very well maintained. We had a delicious dinner at the on-premises Frankie's Chuckwagon restaurant (all you can eat spaghetti was the nightly special). Close to I-10 so there is a little road noise, which is the only reason I gave this campground a 9 rather than a 10. Price reflects 50% Passport America discount. We will stay here again.

Great Campground! We had a river front site, full hook up with 30 amp. Deer herd was fun to watch. Our ATT internet card didn't work, but there's Wi-Fi in the activity center. We will definitely stay here again! As this is one of our membership parks we did not pay for our site.

Wonderful campground. Large, well spaced out paved sites. Our site was level, although some within the campground were not. Price reflects Golden Age 50% off (price is $27 - $13.50 for Golden Age pass holder.) Quiet. This is our second stay at this campground. We would definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

Great for a night or two to visit attractions in the area or as an overnight stop on your way north or south on I-75. Very easy access to interstate but of course that means you hear road noise unless you stay in one of the back-in sites. Staff super friendly. Bathrooms immaculate. Owners are working on leveling sites. Our site was good. We would stay here again.

We had a reservation for 5 nights but left after 4. Park is adequate for 1 or 2 nights only, but definitely not a resort style campground. Woman who checked us in was more interested in moving her laundry from washer to dryer than helping us. We were put in a Water and Electric site even though there were many full hook up sites available during our entire stay. The pet walk area hadn't been mowed in years so dog walkers used the tent area. Roads showed evidence of being paved but are now gravel with ruts. We did have a long pull through that was level, although others had to use boards to level their units. Since we were in the W/E area we had roads on both front and back of our rig, and had cars and trucks constantly traveling past our rig, well into the early morning hours. Narrow sites. Impossible to put awnings out without extending over the next site. Our water was shared with the next site, but there was no splitter. We had to use our splitter as every night the site next to us was occupied by a unit passing through. We would stay here in the future only for a pass through one night stay.

Agree with previous comments. Good for a night or two to visit attractions in the area. Price is Passport America including 50 amp. Laundry cheap: $1 to wash or dry. Bathroom building locked unless you ask for it to be open. We would stay here again. Road noise, but very convenient on and off I-40.

Small campground best for self-contained units. No restroom, but there is a porta-potty next to the golf course for camper use. We really enjoyed our overnight stay. Sites are level, pull through, and we had a great view of the golf course. Nice shade trees. Easy to get our satellite dish set up. We are planning to stop here for a 2 night stay to take advantage of the golf course and on-site restaurant when we travel through the area again.

Nice park - as we expect when we stay at a KOA. Staff very helpful and helped us plan the best use of our one-day to visit the area attractions. Our site was level. Convenient to downtown and about a mile from the interstate. We plan to stay here again.

Nice campground. Our site was level. Lots for kids to do. Free pancakes every morning from 7-9. Free ice cream Sunday Friday evening. Staff very helpful. Plan to spend a few days as there are a lot of places to visit in the area. We did a day trip to Yellowstone and came back the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway which is a "Not to be Missed" trip if you have time, although we would not travel this route in our motor home! We would stay here again.

Agree with previous review. We were traveling through and after a long day it was the nearest place to stay. Sites were muddy because of recent rains, but it was quiet and we had electric rather than staying in the Wal-Mart parking lot a mile down the road. Bathroom was rustic but clean and supplied with paper products. We would stay here again in a pinch.

Nice campground. Quiet. We had a back in 30 amp full hook up site at the passport rate of $15 for first night. Most of the sites are level, all are gravel. Helpful staff. Close to Seneca Falls to visit the Women's Rights Nat'l Historic Park. The back of their campground map was full of information and addresses of local attractions, restaurants, shopping as well as hospitals and veterinary care. We would stay here again.

Long narrow sites. We had the misfortune to be placed facing the row of permanent old units. Residents all had dogs tied outside except for those who let them run loose. Stepped in dog waste while setting up, and had to clean our site. If you are self-contained, don't use the campground bathrooms: yuck! It's good for an overnight because it is easy off/on interstate. Office help very nice, but we would not stay here again unless it was an emergency.

We got a full hook up site for $18 (Passport America rate). Roads a little rough, but as other reviewers said, if you go slow it's okay. We found the other campers and residents very friendly, the office staff great, pool and activities fun to participate in. One bathroom really needed repairs, but the other one we checked was okay. Laundry is available on location. We were able to get in our site with a 35 footer, with no difficulty. We would stay here again.

Nice park for a day or two. We had our 35-footer serviced here, which was done quickly and professionally. We were in a pull-through, the sites are level and long. Has easy access off I-81. Price is Passport America rate. We would stay here again.

Great place to stay. Owners on site were very friendly and helpful. Next time we'll attend the Sunday covered dish dinner. Bathrooms clean. Lots to do in the area plan to spend a few days. We really enjoyed the baby chicks and momma hen. Sites large, level, easy to pull through. We would definitely stay here again. Campground also is Passport America for first night's stay.

We stayed in the Pine Grove section which was reopened in 2010, newly rebuilt due to hurricanes and wild fires. We were on site 38 which is close to restroom. Nice gravel drive, flat, full hook up 50 amp sites. No mature trees but many have been planted. Give them a few years to grow and the campground will appear much less like a flat, open field. Bring your bikes! Lots of riding trails. We walked the Kitching Creek Nature trail and climbed the Hobe Mountain Observation Tower. Also impressed that they have recycling containers!

Wonderful campground: quiet, lots of opportunities to watch boats go through the locks. Sites are paved, easy to back into, and level. Restrooms were clean, as was the laundry facility. We used an ATT aircard which worked adequately. Cell phone signal was great. Nice area to visit. We were on Site 40 which is a pull through. Definitely plan to visit again. Price reflects 50% Golden Passport discount.

Wish we had checked reviews prior to making a reservation. Maybe the clerk's repeating three times that the reservation was non-refundable should have been a clue! Drove through junkyard to get to campground. We requested 30 amp and wanted to use our stand-alone satellite dish. Clerk forced us to upgrade to 50 amp at additional cost. Campsite was impossible to negotiate, so we asked for reassignment to a different 30 amp site which worked for our TV. Clerk was rude, sites were not level, close together. We camped here because of the KOA affiliation. Not KOA quality at all.
