Yes, it is a parking lot and sites are close, but it is on the northern end of the Strip, and many of the casino resorts are within walking distance. Some sites have trees and patios, which makes those sites feel more spacious. We were on the outer edge of the campground, where there was quite a bit of traffic and train noise. If I were to stay here again, I would ask for a site closer to the office where the traffic noise isn't as evident. The campground isn't too far off I-15, very convenient.

This campground is under new ownership and there are many improvements in progress. Sites are spacious and level, campground is clean and attractive. Roads are paved, gravel sites with concrete patios. Water, power, and sewer were all good, although all are at the back of the site. All sites are back-in, pull-throughs to be available soon. Fitness room to come, not here yet. On-site restaurant is very good, and the associated winery has many award-winning wines. There will be a heliport! This campground is wonderfully quiet at night, and there are lots of stars in the sky including those of the Milky Way. We would absolutely stay here again.

This park is clean and attractive with paved interior roads and gravel sites. Each site has a small tree and picnic table, is spacious and level. Power and sewer were good, water pressure a little uneven. Satellite TV reception was fine, AT&T cell had five bars but no Internet, Verizon Wi-Fi dropped occasionally. I gave this park a 9 because of freeway noise and trucks using their engine brakes to slow down for the truck stop. I used ear plugs to sleep. I would stay here again, with ear plugs.

A fine RV park in the foothills east of Phoenix. It is very clean and level. Paved interior roads with asphalt and gravel sites. I gave this park a 9 because there are no picnic tables, grills, or landscaping at the sites. We had no problems with power, water, or sewer. Satellite TV is fine, no obstructions. AT&T cell reception is good, Verizon Wi-Fi drops frequently. Pool and spa are nice, although starting to show their age - tiles could use a thorough cleaning. Fitness room is excellent, as is the club room. There is highway noise at night, although not too bad. Location is close to Mesa and Scottsdale. Seems to be a few degrees cooler than Phoenix, a good thing during the summer months. We chose to stay here because we did not want to stay in one of the huge RV parks with 55+ seasonals and innumerable activities. We were here just a few days for sightseeing, and this campground was perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground is set at the foot of a hill and is surrounded by national forest. The pine trees in the campground offer shade. There are really two parts to this campground - tents and small trailers are placed at the front, with lots of trees, quite lovely. Larger trailers and motorhomes are placed at the back, with fewer trees. These sites are close together and somewhat unlevel (some more than others). We first picked site #152. It is a lovely site, spacious with a patio and furniture, in the NE corner. Unfortunately, when we tried to level in our 40' motorhome, the front wheels were at least 15" off the ground. We decided to move. The person in the office told me that site 152 was better suited to vehicles 36' or under, which I imagine is true. It was the drop-off towards the front of our RV that was the problem. Beautiful site though, right next to the national forest. It is the "superest" of the supersites. The other supersites are on the ends of the RV rows. Most are relatively level, and are a little more spacious than the regular sites. We moved to a regular site, which was fairly level although we did have to put blocks under the back left tires. It was one of the narrowest of sites however, and we had to push the picnic table up a slight hill to make room for our RV. My husband had to move back and forth to get into the site, and the people behind us had to move their parked car out of the way. Upon leaving, my husband drove into the site in front of us (which was fortunately empty), because it was easier to turn out of. Once settled we were fine. We were able to receive satellite TV (not possible at several of the sites). AT&T cell phone worked fine. Verizon data service worked well at certain times of day (morning) but dropped often in the evenings. Location was good, close to everything, easy on/off of I-40. Traffic and train noise was not bothersome. The sewer connection was not threaded, which made us a little uneasy. Staffers were helpful and friendly enough. There are other campgrounds in the area, but they were either booked or closing for the winter when we arrived. I might have given it a lower score, except the location is good.

This isn't the nicest RV park we have stayed in. The paved roads could use some work, and the sights are close together. The paved roads could use repair. Water and electric hookups work fine. We were told to use the sewer hose only when needed to dump, because apparently the ravens like to punch holes in them. Go figure. Sites are level. AT&T cell phones did not work in the campground, but did work at the Grand Canyon Village. Verizon Wi-Fi worked intermittently, best in the mornings for some reason. TV satellite reception was fine, and would be at most sites. We had no problem navigating to our site in our 40' motorhome. The big positive is location, location, location! It is a 15 minute walk to the canyon rim, and 10 minutes to the grocery store, cafeteria, and lodge. The shuttle bus stops at the campground every 7 minutes. We would definitely stay here again.

The sign at the campground entrance says "Wahweap Campground", making it a little confusing. The view is amazing. Campers look across the lake at stark rock formations. The campground and the view were both beautiful. We were assigned to Loop A #17. The site was spacious and level. Water, electric, and sewer worked fine. Roads and sites are paved with gravel sites for picnic tables. I loved the natural landscaping. AT&T and Verizon were both very poor, working intermittently only. It rained while we were here, which caused no problems. I am glad we were not in Loop D, the newer area. The sites there are much closer together. We will absolutely return to this campground again.

Very clean, well-manicured. Paved roads, level concrete pads, small trees, grass, gravel for picnic tables. Turns a little tight for a 40' RV, but we managed. Very nice camp store and gift shop. 15-20 minutes from Springdale and Zion entrance. Some highway noise at night, but not bad. AT&T cell worked well. Verizon Wi-Fi was non-existent. Swimming pool and spa were very clean. I explained we would like satellite TV reception, and was asked if the dish was at the front, middle or back of RV! First time I have ever been asked that, and they knew right where to put us. One comment - we first tried to approach the campground via UT-9 from the east, but turned around at the park entrance because we didn't realize they close the tunnel to oncoming traffic for large vehicles, and charge $15 to do it. We decided to go the long way around to avoid this. We later followed a bus through the 1-mile tunnel in our car, and it didn't seem too bad for the bus although it had to straddle the center line. Tour buses seem to do it routinely. We would absolutely stay in this RV park again. It felt very much like a resort.

We enjoyed this campground. Panguitch is a charming community in a beautiful valley. This is a good base camp for Bryce and Red Canyons and other parks. The owners were extremely helpful and very accommodating. Water pressure and 50 amps worked well. The roads and sites are gravel, which can be dusty when dry. Sites are fairly level, pointed downhill a bit. Most sites are shaded, but we were able to receive satellite TV on our end site. Our AT&T cells worked fine, as well as Verizon WiFi. Very quiet at night. We would definitely stay here again.

We wanted to go to the trilobite quarry, and this was the only RV park in the area. Staff was very helpful. Interior paved road with gravel sites. Some sites shaded, pull-thus have no landscaping and are close together. Entire campground is very level. Water and 50amps worked fine. There was plenty of room for our 40' motorhome, but we stayed late in the season so the campground was only half full. Highway and train noise were not bad at night. We would stay here again.

Very urban park, but close to everything. Sites a little tight. There are trees, but we were able to get satellite TV. AT&T and Verizon worked well. 50amps and water pressure were good. Internal roads and sites are asphalt, with picnic tables on grass. Helpful staff. Train whistles are frequent, but not too loud. We would stay here again for the campground's central location and convenience.

This is a clean and well-managed RV park. It is a parking lot, yes, but most visitors seemed to stay only for one night, and the operation is efficient. Roads and sites are gravel, but easily navigable. We were guided to our site. 50amps and water were fine. No shade at all, very little landscaping. AT&T worked well, but Verizon was slow and dropped frequently. Our site was almost level. Some highway noise. We would stay here again for an overnight stay.

This park is very clean and attractive. Staff was helpful. Roads are dirt and sites are gravel. 50amps and water pressure are good. The sites are short and turns can be tight. Sites are level. We have a 40' motorhome and as far as I could tell there were only one or two sites that could accommodate our length, so I am glad we called in advance. Despite trees we were able to receive satellite TV, but not all sites would have this capability. Attractions are close by. Highway and train noise at night were not a problem. I would stay again if the same site was available.

Rate indicates monthly stay. Clean, many activities, friendly staff. We had no problems with 50amps or water pressure. Both AT&T and Verizon coverage were spotty here, more off than on. Beautiful area. A couple of steep hillsides proved problematic - we spun our wheels and had to backup and try again in our 40' motorhome. Also, approach this campground from the east, not the south. There is a one-lane bridge with tight turns at either end. We won't try that again. We would stay here again.

I have mixed feelings about this campground. It was fine as far as utilities go (amps and water), but it did seem a little run down. For example, there were weeds growing up through the gravel everywhere. Also, most of the sites were very close together. We stayed in a premium site, which is larger than the others, and I am glad we did. That said, the other campgrounds in the area are tightly spaced as well, and are closer to the main road. This KOA campground at least has a buffer, provided by the swimming pool, between the highway and the sites. It seems that during the summer there are many activities - trail rides, swimming, breakfasts, and so on. These were all closed for the season when we stayed here. I like that the campground feels like it is out in the country rather than in town.

Good layout, some shady and some sunny spots, plenty of room, all sites very level. The campground is on flat land. We had no problems with utilities. Interior roads are dirt, gravel sites on grass. The one person in the office seemed very busy. There were dozens of motorhomes headed for a rally while we were here. Location is convenient to freeway, stores (including Walmart), and close to the Amish areas. Quiet at night. We would camp here again.

This park is surprisingly large, considering it is out in the middle of nowhere. People seem to come from Chicago to be "out in the country." We stayed here while my husband worked on his genealogy. It turned out he was related to almost everyone in the area! Back to the campground: our site was in a large grassy field, very level. There were few trees, so we had good satellite TV reception. Utilities were fine. There were shaded areas as well. The area felt very safe. My one concern, although it didn't affect us directly, was all the dead fish on the lake shore. There seemed to have been some kind of die-off. Pollution? Low water levels due to the drought? Hopefully it is temporary. Despite this, we would stay here again if in the area.

This campground was very busy when we arrived here on a weekend. There were kids everywhere, and all seemed to have a good time. Everyone disappeared Sunday afternoon and the week days were very quiet. Staff was accommodating, and gave us a couple of choices for campsites. We picked the longer site, with satellite TV access. Both AT&T and Verizon worked intermittently here, mostly not. Office was dim and musty: it could use a new carpet and some updating. The site itself was fine: everything worked, there was plenty of room, the site was level. We would return.

This campground is large and was busy when we were here. There is a large section of seasonals at the back; there are many tent sites, under pine trees; and a large open field of grass for motorhomes. We arrived after a rain event, and our site had muddy puddles. Once the puddles had dried, someone came by to fill the puddles with dirt and level the area. There is a lovely spring-fed lake on the property, open to swimming and floating. There seem to be many activities scheduled for families, including softball. It is away from main roads and freeways, so is quiet at night. We would stay here again.

I loved this campground. Nice layout, friendly staff. Very clean. We met people who return to this campground every year. Attractive. Very quiet at night. Most sites are shaded, but a few sites are open enough to have good satellite TV reception (as was ours). The office/store is interesting - antiques are sold here, as well as supplies. I would definitely return to this campground if in the area.

This campground is very convenient to freeways and town. It is on a busy road, but we were at the back and the noise did not bother us. Sites are level. Campground is well-maintained. Roads are dirt, so it is dusty under dry conditions. One site has a personal spa! (It costs more, of course.) Sites are level, water and power were good. Some sites are shaded, some not. Friendly staff.

I loved this campground. It is a unique combination of horses, horse trailers, and motorhomes. It is away from the main roads, and is very quiet at night. Deer and wild turkeys sometimes wonder through. The mountain view is beautiful. AT&T and Verizon both worked here. Most sites are level, although we had to use a couple of boards on our site, which is the reason for the "9" rather than a "10". Our site may actually have been the only unlevel site, so this isn't a huge problem. Nice people, nice location. I would definitely stay here again.

If you want to find out what it is like to live on the South Dakota plains, this is the place to be. The campground has all the amenities, and we enjoyed are stay here. The owners work very hard, and are very friendly. The campground includes a small restaurant where breakfast and dinner are served. It was a good way to meet other campers and even a few locals. 1880 Boomtown, just down the road, is a very interesting and educational attraction that shows what it was like to live on the plains in the 1880's. We would most definitely stay here again.

This is an attractive campground with very shaded areas and an open field for campers who want satellite TV reception. Most sites are level, but we unfortunately were put on a very unlevel site. The campground was full, so we had to take it. My husband had to make a trip to the local lumber yard to get enough wooden blocks to place under our tires to level the coach. We would stay here again, but would try to arrive early in the day so as to avoid the one or two unlevel sites.

This park is not really a "resort," in that there is not much landscaping and few trees, except down by the water. This allows for good satellite TV reception, but the park does look barren. Staff was friendly and helpful. We rented a kayak. They have a few onsite: and we really enjoyed exploring the "narrows." The location is good, close to attractions. We would stay here again.

Location is great, close to attractions but far enough away to be quiet at night. The campground seems to be well-managed, and was busy while we were here. There are some shaded spots, some open. We were able to receive satellite TV. A decent campground but nothing exceptional about it. We would stay here again, mostly because of location.

The pros: clean, attractive, choice of shaded sites or open sites, staff is friendly and helpful, pool with water feature for kids, lots of attractions in the area. Cons: sites are close together; turns are tight for motorhomes; frequent trains pass by, although without tooting. The noise of the trains didn't really bother us, although when they passed the motorhome would shake a bit. There are many campgrounds in the area: we might try another next time.

This campground didn't seem as neat and clean as other campgrounds we have stayed in, but all utilities worked fine, no complaints. The campground is very kid and pet friendly. We arrived on a busy weekend and learned quickly to drive slow because of children everywhere. A "Soc-hop" was very well attended on Saturday night - adults enjoyed the music and kids danced. It is a distance from major roads, so is very quiet at night. Lots of seasonals, but plenty of sites for those staying only a few days as well. Sodus Point, nearby, is worth visiting - a beautiful area.

This is a lovely campground, very clean and well-maintained. Staff people were friendly and helpful. There are small trees throughout which provide some shade and give the campground a very nice "ambience", but at the same time we were able to receive satellite TV with no problem. Roads are dirt, but our site had a thick layer of new gravel. I am giving this campground a "9" because it is sandwiched between I-90 and CR-5. Both have truck traffic. The noise didn't bother us at all in our motorhome, but I can see where it might be a problem for others. I would definitely stay at this campground again if in the area.

This campground is large and clean and in a good location, near restaurants and shopping. There is no road noise, nice and quiet. Occasionally a plane lands at the nearby airfield, but not often enough to be a nuisance. There is a man-made lake with a fountain and small beach for swimming. There is a large conservation area with a nice walking trail. Take bug spray. There are shaded sites and open sites. The open sites are very level. The shaded sites vary, but I didn't see any large motorhomes in those. I would stay here again.

There seems to have been a lot of rain in the area, and some of the sites are in disrepair, most likely because of the rain. By disrepair, I mean that the gravel has washed away, or piled up in some areas. Some sites are very close together, but the manager kept some sites empty to make up for it, thankfully. It is easy enough to get in and out. There are trees between the campground and US-2, but they don't stop the morning rush hour noise from reaching the campground. It is noisier than I would have expected. Our campsite is clean. It is a good location for exploring the area. There are restaurants nearby.
