We arrived just before closing time and the girls really wanted to swim in the pool. The staff turned the lights back on for them which was very nice. The staff escorted us to the site. This KOA is unique in that the sites are a large grass field and they just stagger the RV's in the field. When we arrived the place was full but the next morning at 10am the park was empty. This is obviously a place to stop and sleep while on the way to somewhere else. The location is beautiful. We visited the nearby Fort Bridger state park which was fantastically preserved and a pleasant surprise.
I was concerned about the reviews saying the sites were too narrow and the website photos don't really give a good view of the sites. I made the reservations and hoped for the best. When you talk to these folks on the phone, they seem pretty tough regarding the rules, etc. When we arrived very late in the evening, they were friendly and helpful. The owners are folksy but good hearted. The sites turned out to be fine. They are level gravel with a small concrete pad for the picnic table. The sites aren't generously wide but were adequate for our 31' Class C with an 8' slide out. Each site is bordered by several large Pine trees on both sides. There is space behind your site for a dinghy. We rented a car from the local Avis at the airport (who picked us up at the park). This was a nice base camp for visiting Yellowstone. Camp fires are not allowed.
I didn't follow my own rule - never book an RV Park without a decent review on this website and pictures of the sites on the camp website. I was drawn in by a professional looking website and the "Seven Crown Resorts" name. This place was AWFUL!! The "resort" is 14 road miles (over an hour drive) from Hwy 167. It isn't their fault, but they should have mentioned (in 2 different phone conversations) that the road is being resurfaced. We drove over a mile in the dark on a gravel construction road. This place is in the middle of nowhere! When we finally arrived, we found the "resort" had nothing but a bathroom/shower/laundry building. There were no other facilities. We had to call from a phone on the wall to check-in at the nearby hotel. There were no site maps, etc. I drove down to the hotel and realized that Lake Mead is over a mile away. The staff at the hotel office told me that the lake had retreated because of the drought, but clearly the lake has never been anywhere near the RV park. Their website says "Our lakeside hotel and RV Park ..." but this is obviously misleading. The hotel staff gave me a poorly photocopied map of the site and showed me our site was right next to the bathrooms. I asked to be moved somewhere else and they had no idea which sites were available. At this point it was late at night and I just wanted to hookup, turn on the AC, and sleep. We parked in a different site for the night. Apparently the RV park is also where local employees live. There were some big Class A rigs in the park, I assume they had boats and were spending their time on the lake. The next morning I called the office and told them we were leaving rather than staying two nights. They agreed not to charge us for anything.
I was concerned about the mixed reviews on this park, specifically the mention of loud groups and ATV's. We arrived late in the evening and the staff was friendly and professional. The RV park is part of a huge complex of hotel, restaurant, and retail shops. Our site was near the RV office and was level gravel. The site was both long and wide with plenty of room. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring. This was the only place on a two week trip that allowed us to have a camp fire! Despite all the reviews mentioning noise, at 11 pm this was the quietest park I've ever been in. We felt bad sitting by the fire even whispering because it was so absolutely quiet! The park is right next to Bryce Canyon National Park. Afterwards, we spent some time in Ruby's at the Rock Shop which had very reasonable prices. My daughter bought a $10 geode and for $1 they cut it open and for $8 they polished both halves. We had some great ice cream also. We ate lunch in the diner which was also reasonably priced.
It is a nice, new park right next to the Colorado River. However, you can't see the river from the park.The site is nicely shaded by mature trees.The sites are nice and so are the restrooms and showers. You can't get any closer to Arches National Park which is less than a mile up the highway. The park owners are family members with the folks who run "Canyonlands by Night" dinner and river light show, which is right next door. We were sort of disappointed with the show which is a night river boat trip with music & narration but the lights are from a truck mounted spotlight that lights up the canyon walls.
There are only two Thermopolis parks reviewed here, but there are numerous RV parks in the city. The lady at the office was very nice and helpful and they escorted us to the site. The spaces are short so our 31' barely fit. The sites were gravel and narrow but adequate. The park is in a good location for Thermpolis. We highly recommend visiting the free Hot Springs State Park for a nice 20 minute soak.
We spent two nights at this typical KOA camp. This site is good for a base camp for Salt Lake City sight seeing. There isn't much to do at the park except the pool and playground. The sites are OK and average width. Hookups are old but OK. There is some decent shade trees. Camp fires were not allowed.
We have stayed here three times on the way through Las Vegas. This time we stayed on the first and last night of our two week trip. We came in without reservations on Tuesday afternoon and they took care of us. The pool, restaurant, and store are all top notch. The staff is friendly and professional including 24 hour security. The sites are typical of modern RV parks with a wide, level concrete parking pad and a small patch of grass with a picnic table. The hookups are great. Las Vegas in July/Aug is too hot for anything except running from the RV air conditioning to the pool. The staff will call you a cab to "The Strip" which costs about $25 one way.
This was a halfway stop on our way home, but we plan on returning for Las Vegas trip. This park is very well organized which you will experience as soon as you drive in. They have thought of everything. There seems to be a lot of rules but nothing unreasonable. We knew we were in Vegas when a woman jogged by with a dog wearing sunglasses and running shoes on it's paws! They have a nice store and restaurant on site. The pool was great except not enough lounge chairs. Las Vegas traffic and parking isn't RV friendly, so the office staff has an arrangement with local taxis to pick you up at your site. They used to offer a shuttle service but this had been discontinued. The sites are new, level concrete with nice hookups. The site size is adequate and there is a small patch of grass. There are no picnic tables or other amenities at the site.
The park is actually inside the national park, so you pay a weekly usage fee to get in. We followed the advise on RV Park Reviews and asked for a site in Loop C. This was a good choice because the location was beautiful. Try to get an outside space. We had the desert canyon behind us and a great view of the lake. The sites are large, level concrete with picnic table, fire ring, and BBQ. From Loop C you have a long walk down (and back up) the hill to the office/restrooms. The restroom/shower is new and very nice. You have to pay $2 for the showers but you don' t have to rush because they keep going for a very long time. The lake is just a short walk further down (and up) from the office/restroom area. There is a great beach. They offer a shuttle into town and to the dam. We didn't visit the marina or the hotel, but you can use the pool at the hotel. We plan on coming back for a longer visit.
Site is free, no reservations taken, but there were plenty of sites available. There are limited sites for long RV's, but plenty were available during our stay in August. There was generous space between sites. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring/BBQ. There is plenty of shade from tall trees. The national park visitor center is within walking distance up the hill. Bathrooms were adequate, typical national park facilities. Generator usage was 6:00 am - 8:30 pm. Our "6" rating is only because of the lack of hookups. This is a very nice public campground and perfect for a visit to Canyon de Chelly.
Rate is for 4 people with KOA card. When we arrived we were disappointed and almost decided to leave and try the Bernalillo KOA. The surrounding area is low income urban and industrial. The park is a big, wind swept parking lot that didn't seem well maintained. We decided to give it a shot anyway. The park didn't seem to have the usual KOA amenities and we were shocked to see they had received the 2006 President's Award? The bathrooms were clean but outdated basic facilities. There were a few banana bikes locked up in a fenced cage. On the second day, we found the dog park which was actually very nice with a dog obstacle course. We chose this KOA since it was closer to Old Town Albuquerque but Old Town turned out to be very touristy. The Sandia Peak Tramway was great.
Rate includes KOA member discount. We stayed for one night on the way to Carlsbad Caverns. There was very little shade, but the sites were gravel and level. After a few days in the desert heat, we really enjoyed the nice pool. The restrooms/showers were new and very nice. They offer breakfast and BBQ dinner (for extra fee) delivered to your site. Planting some trees for shade would really improve the place. Overall, a typical, nice KOA experience.
We stayed in the older section of the park which had trees and was near the small pond. Being Summer, the new section was empty. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Our site was a little off level but easily solved. Picnic table and fire ring are not supplied. The owner did allow us to use some concrete blocks to make a fire ring. There is a metal, home style charcoal BBQ at each site. The restroom is a wood shed which also houses the washer/dryer & water heater. You have to pay $2 for the shower which is a little disappointing. They monitor your electrical usage and you pay for usage over 20 khw per day, however they tell you this up front, it seemed reasonable, and we didn't exceed the limit in our 2 night visit. The road noise was noticeable but didn't bother us. We were disappointed in the town of Alamogordo because there wasn't much to see or do. The space museum is worth a visit.
This park is one of our best experiences yet! First, I was very impressed by the New Mexico state online reservation system which gives you detailed, specific information on each site including the site dimensions and photos. Why can't "for profit" parks give this kind of service? We stayed in site #17 which was huge! Each site has a BBQ, fire pit, picnic table, concrete patio, and shade cover. The site was level and gravel. Hookups were new and worked fine. The restrooms were clean, modern, and basic state park facilities. Only comment would be the ADA compliant seat in the shower made it necessary to stand very close to the shower head. The views from the camp site were incredibly beautiful both day and night. The far away city lights and unbelievable stars were fantastic. We spent hours "rock hounding" around the park. Although it was very warm in August, we started early in the morning and collected some nice rocks. This is a special place which we would highly recommend.
Site was $23 plus $3 each for having more than 2 people. The park is a small sized gravel lot with an office building and a restroom building. There are some trees on the periphery but no trees inside/between spaces. We were offered either a pull through or back in space. We chose the back in because it had cable TV hookups. However, the cable didn't work. We never visited the restroom so can't comment on that. There is a lot of junk piled around the office which leaves a poor impression. The couple who runs the park were very friendly. They gave me a map tour of Tombstone and pointed out places to visit and good restaurants. There isn't much to the place but it is about a 3 block walk to Tombstone. We didn't see any RV park which was better so this park will work fine if you plan to spend your time in Tombstone anyway.
We camped Wednesday through Saturday night. Rate was $53.75 weeknight and $60.00 weekend plus $5/night for each person after the first two. Before tax and KOA discount, we paid an average of $67.50 per night for four people. This KOA was completely filled during the weekend with overflow RV's parking in the dry camping area. Anywhere near the pool, office, rec room, playground, or bathrooms was very busy with people and kids. Even if you are used to KOA camping, this place is busy. I'd stay away from sites 129-180 to avoid the crowds. Some of these sites are a few feet away from the busy bathroom or rec room and you will have people walking through your space. With all that said, we enjoyed our stay. There was plenty for our kids to do (great petting zoo, nice pool, new playground equipment, craft projects ($4-8), ice cream socials, live exotic animal show on Saturday evening (fantastic but crowded and hard to hear), hay ride, bike rentals, etc). Site was level dirt with plenty of shade trees. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Hookups were OK except the sewer connection was 10-12 inches above grade so there is little downhill "flow" from your tanks. Bathrooms were OK, acceptable and clean but not great. You may have to wait to use the bathroom due to the crowds. There is little selection of real campgrounds in the San Francisco bay area and so far this is the best we've found. Everything else is nothing but an asphalt parking lot. San Francisco or Oakland are both about 45 minutes away.
Nice RV park if you need a base from which to visit Gilroy Gardens, Gilroy Garlic Festival, etc. The park is new and in excellent condition, although there wasn't much to do at the park. There is a nice pool but no picnic tables, no fire rings, etc. The trees are a few years old but don't provide much shade yet. The bathrooms are new, clean, and showers are roomy and well equipped. The camp store is OK. Staff was friendly and helpful in giving directions, etc. The sites are level and concrete. Hookups are new and worked great except the cable TV which was snowy and had limited channels. Plenty of shopping (Costco, etc) nearby, but you feel nicely isolated inside the park. This is a quality facility and a good value for a place to stay at night.
We would definitely camp here again. Most importantly, the site is full of mature oak trees providing lots of shade. The park is cleverly divided into several areas like Goat Meadow, Roadrunner Flats, Quail Heights, Pond View Road, The Oaks, Shady Nitch, Coyote Country, and The Boomerang. Apparently Goat Meadow (grass) is only open seasonally and weekends. Pond View, Roadrunner, and Quail Heights seem to be primarily full timers. The Oaks is sort of an open shady area. The Shady Nitch is appropriately named because entry/exit is tight if you have a big RV. Coyote Country seemed more rustic but was closed when we were there. We chose The Boomerang at the top of the hill closer to the pool. I wouldn't recommend the spots right next to the pool due to the noise of excited kids. We stayed in the area of the 60-69 spaces. These were deep and wide spaces terraced with rock walls between them. There was a lot of shade. Entry/exit was convenient and the hookups were fine. Space 70 and 70A would make a great location for a two family camping weekend since there is a huge area at the top of the hill. The staff was very nice and there is a reasonably well stocked store. The clubhouse has ping-pong, a book library, and other games. You can take the kids to see some miniature ponies and some pigs and chickens which are kept in enclosures. The fishing pond is next to Goat Meadow and features a playground with swings, volleyball court, ducks, and catch/release fishing. The pool was sparkling clean but was too cold for either of our daughters to get in past their feet. The bathrooms were clean and in good shape. There are horseshoe courts and white picket fenced, grassy play areas in several locations around the park. Fire rings are provided at no cost if you ask. There is a small stream which runs through the middle of the camp.
This is perhaps the worst RV park we've stayed at in over two years. Their website gives the false impression of being on Lake Henshaw. Actually, the lake is across the highway and far down the hill. They absolutely will not take reservations and as they told me "You have to defend your space if you leave for the day." When we arrived, I should have realized why they have a large "NO REFUNDS" sign in the office. The clerk showed me a map of 16 hookup spaces that aren't occupied by full timers. We could choose whatever space we wanted that was available. Six of those spaces were on an approx. 10 degree slope and were only above 15 feet long before dropping off to a 30 degree slope. You wouldn't even put a tent on these spaces. Of the other 12 spaces, they were level but short. Our 31 foot RV stuck out about six feet into what would be the driveway (if there was such a thing designated). There was nothing but hard packed dirt with nothing to separate the spaces. If the placed had been full, the spaces would be too narrow to put a table between them. The electrical connection was at the bottom underneath the box? I only discovered it when another camper nearby told me where to look. We had arrived late, so decided to see if it looked any better in the morning. Unfortunately, morning arrived at 6:45 AM when we were awakened with loud Mexican music coming from a full timer across the street. This was the last straw. Even though we paid for two nights, we packed up and left that morning. Remember that they don't give refunds- and now you know why. The bathrooms were dirty with spider webs and discarded cigarettes on the floor. The pool was hopefully not open because the water was dark and dirty. There seemed to be some tent camping sites which seemed better and wee located away from the RV/Mobile Home sites. The entire place is on a steep hill. If you have an RV, stay away from this place!!!
Location is fantastic with great beach access and ocean views. Most sites have generous space about 40' deep and 30' wide. ONLY A FEW SITES HAVE HOOKUPS!. Each space has a fire pit and sturdy picnic table. Reservations are made through ReserveAmerica and there is a $7.50 "transaction fee." Reserve the premium ocean side site vs the standard inland sites. Inland sites back up right next to the busy Coast Highway. Passenger trains are heard and seen about hourly during the day and a few freight trains at night. Tracks are inland of the Coast Highway. We weren't bothered by this, but another reason to reserve the premium ocean sites. Also frequent military and civilian helicopters flying low just off shore. Restrooms are individual toilet/sink rooms in good, clean condition except floors were wet and muddy (not unusual for a beach site). Showers require tokens purchased at camp office. On site store was nicely stocked with everything you could possibly need. Parking one tow vehicle on site is allowed, however if you drive in a vehicle it will cost you $10 per day to park on your site. Free parking on the higway was readily available. Wireless internet is available for additional fee. Park is frequently patrolled by Rangers.
There are very few RV sites in the Bay Area, and they are all just asphalt parking lots with little or no space between sites. So we tried out the Alameda County Fairgrounds site as the only other alternative. This is basically just a no frills place to park the RV and sleep. During the day, you better have other plans to keep yourself busy. There is lots of space for a tow vehicle. There are two separate RV areas, we preferred the new area which is level gravel with new hookups (although no cable TV). The fairgrounds have manned security gates to enter the site. There are no bathrooms/showers at the site. Pleasanton offers several nearby nice restaurants. This is a decent place to make a base camp with easy freeway access to Oakland, San Francisco, or San Jose.
We have very mixed feelings about Canyon RV Park. On the upside, the park has lots of trees and lots of open space. There are plenty of paved roads and paved bike trails for the kids to ride bikes. The playgrounds are well equipped and maintained. We enjoyed watching people on the ropes course on Saturday (operated by an outside vendor and didn't seem to be available to campers). The sites are generous with fire pits and picnic tables. The sites are gravel but we actually prefer that anyway. There was a nice mix of full timers, trailers, and big luxury coaches. Probably the best thing about the park is the Santa Ana River with many sites right next to the water. As mentioned in other reviews, the river is not accessible but is still nice to see and hear. Try to get a site on or near the river and you won't hear the freeway traffic at all. Cost is the biggest downside. We didn't mind the $45 nightly fee considering the park is in Anaheim and so close to big tourist attractions. However, that only includes TWO people. Each additional person was $2 per night. Each dog was $1 per night. Our two night stay with 3 kids and 2 dogs cost us $106!!! Adding insult was a ONE HOUR visit by a relative and her two toddlers which cost them $7 to drive through the gate !!!! The restrooms could best be described as prison like. The structure is all concrete block. Each stainless steel toilet (no separate seat) surrounded by concrete block to the ceiling with a skylight (what do you do at night?). The showers are similar bleak structures with a concrete block bench. This bathrooms appear to be something designed for an urban public park with a homeless problem. This was completely out of place in such a beautiful, gated park. We decided NOT to use the restrooms and used the motorhome facilities instead.
Great location just 4 miles from Julian. Unfortunately Hwy 79 is right next to about 1/4 of the sites. Traffic noise was only noticeable when outside and was occasional not constant. Limited sewer hookup sites. We had problems with our air conditioning all weekend, might be inconsistent AC power. Most sites seemed reasonably level, but ours was way off. Our awning area was on a slope covered with gravel. However, the site was very long so we had a lot of space behind the RV. The sites follow the contour of the ground and the trees, which I like better than the new perfectly laid out sites. The best thing about this park is the mature trees and plenty of shade. Just make sure you reserve in advance and pick a nice site. We reserved late on a holiday weekend. There was a nice mix of tent campers, pop up trailers, 5th wheels, Class C and just a few Class A RV's. They allow fires, which is nice. There isn't much to do (no pool, no playground, etc). The streets are paved which led to a lot of kids riding bikes and skateboarding down the steep inclines. They have a large fishing pond but it was closed for renovation. The pond is not visible except from a few sites that seem to be taken by long term residents. There is only one restroom/shower building which requires a long walk uphill. There are only 3 men's showers and 3 women's showers for 230 sites? On the other hand, the showers were empty and clean when I was there. They do have 5 additional portable toilets located throughout the park. The camp store is very nice and offers WiFi internet, movie rentals, laundry, books, and a nice stock of supplies.
Huge RV park located right off the 5 Freeway. We picked this park as a convenient overnight stop to break up the long drive through central California. New facility with great hookups, level concrete pads. There is no shade available and between sites are some new trees and bark mulch. Restrooms were very nice and very clean. We didn't stay to check out the rest of the park, had to get on the road. You will hear some nearby truck noise but not unreasonable.
Park is nicely landscaped, but interior spaces don't have shade. Asphalt paved spaces with grass between. You get a round plastic table and two plastic chairs, would have preferred a picnic table. Camp store only offers very few items. Restrooms allow access to only one person at a time. There was no toilet paper available when I "visited" at about 11 am. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful.
We pulled in after dark and only stayed one night. Staff was friendly and helpful and came out and walked us to the site. Unfortunately, sites are just overgrown grass with lots of trees. There are a lot of permanent residents and the park reflects this. There is a well stocked camp store but the staff were cussing while my kids were with me in the store. This place is OK if you just want a place to pull in and sleep before visiting Mt St Helens. Otherwise, little to recommend it.
Amazingly beautiful site with generous concrete pads generously angled to almost parallel the river which is just 15-20 feet away. There is plenty of grass but no shade. Everything is new. Bathrooms are roomy and very clean. There isn't a camp store. Fires aren't allowed. Nice restaurant on grounds. Staff is very friendly and we rented equipment to tube down the Klamath River and they picked us up downstream. Beautiful, generous riverfront sites make up for the other small issues, so we rated this park as a "9".
Park is entirely gravel with a few small to medium trees. Shade is a premium in this hot, desert environment. Spaces were OK width (not generous) with just enough room for provided picnic table. Hookups concerned me because water faucet was about 4" off the ground and inches away from the sewer connection. Restrooms and showers were clean and about average quality. Shower heads are too low for anyone over 5' high. My wife experienced problems with water pressure and scalding when toilet was flushed. Extensive cable TV channels were provided. I had problems connecting with the free WiFi service and the office staff wasn't knowledgeable about WiFi. I eventually figured out a workaround. Nice pool & playground for the kids, but none of the extra recreation possibilities that are featured at many KOA parks. Park staff were very nice and helpful and they even offer a great pancake breakfast in the morning and a "cowboy cookout" in the evening (for a very reasonable additional fee). The City of Holbrook doesn't offer much to the traveler except opportunities to buy rocks and petrified wood. We didn't find any decent restaurants or other tourist spots nearby. The Petrified Forest is very close to the park and the 28-mile drive through the National Park is very RV friendly.
We bought a package deal including rail trip to Grand Canyon and 3 nights camping. Park is fully paved with wide level sites. Volcanic rock fills spaces between sites. Hookups were new and very well done. There are a few small trees but essentially no shade. There were no picnic tables, fire rings or another other amenities at our individual site. There is a restroom, shower, laundry facility centrally located which also has a large community fire pit, 4 barbecues, and picnic tables. Bathrooms were the finest I've ever seen at an RV park. Stone tile all around, tall shower heads, plenty of room, complimentary shampoo and soap, and perfectly clean. You may use the indoor pool at the hotel, but the pool is across the street and about a 500 yard walk from the center of the RV campground. The RV store is also across the street and about 300 yards from the center of the campground. For late check-ins, they just tape up a list and a map inside the window. It would have been nice if they left a few extra maps outside for late arrivals. The town of Williams is within walking/biking distance and was full of nice shops, restaurants, and wild west shows. The Grand Canyon Railroad is a great way to travel to the Grand Canyon and avoid driving the RV up the mountain. The staff are great but be prepared with plenty of tip money for car attendants on the way up and down plus music performers and the train robbers.
We enjoyed our stay, although there wasn't much to do for the kids. Sites are pretty rustic, packed dirt with rock walls between. There are lots of trees, so be careful driving in and out. Pool was closed for winter. Nice little store with pool table, library, and juke box. Campground is on a steep hillside, so be prepared to walk up/down hill. Playground was pretty run down and horseshoe pit was not maintained. Sunset views were fantastic. Great location for visiting Palomar Observatory. Be careful driving in/out because we watched a trailer trying for an hour to get unstuck. Camp owners were very helpful in trying to get camper unstuck.
Primarily a long term living site. However, staff was very outgoing and friendly. Our girls loved the water balloon launcher with targets on the other side of the lake. Large man-made lake with nice artificial waterfall on top of large boulder. Nice places to hike. There isn't the usual store for supplies, but there is a small snack bar and beer bar on the lake with pool tables. No cell phone reception at the site.
We stayed two nights in a 31' Class C. Sites are level concrete with well tended grass between spaces. Concrete pad is big enough for well maintained picnic bench and fire pit if you request one. Hookups are also well maintained. Sites are surrounded by lots of trees in several species. During our stay there were a variety of campers from classic Airstreams to huge Class A's. Compared to some KOA's, this park is average for things for the kids to do. They have banana bikes, quads, and surreys for rent. Playgrounds are well maintained with a rock wall, etc. Pool was large and heated which was nice. Nice dog run with plenty of room. The location is in a very urban area but you quickly forget that once inside. The freeway noise is barely noticable. The location is very central if you are visiting San Diego attractions.
