This is a very convenient park for visiting Hot Springs, and is a little nicer than most KOAs, but still not great for the price. Park is very hilly and sites are a little tight, due to terracing that had to be done in order to get the sites level. Park roads are showing a little wear and tear. Staff is very friendly. WiFi works good and Verizon air card worked fine, too. We would stay here again, if we were in the Hot Springs area.

This park is great, especially for the price! A portion of the park has paved roads and concrete sites (this is where we stayed), while a portion has gravel roads and sites. It is true that the interstate runs right beside the park, but if you ask for a "pond view" site, you will get put in the front of the park, where road noise is a little less. It did not bother us anyway, since we were running our AC. They DO have cable TV now (newly installed), so don't let that confuse you like it did us. Easy access to all OKC sights and several casinos about 30 minutes away. We would return anytime we are in this area. WiFi worked GREAT and Verizon air card had a strong signal.

I agree with everything else stated here. This place is poorly designed and poorly maintained. We stayed for one night on our way across country, because we wanted to gamble a little. We would have been much better off boondocking in the casino parking lot and saving ourselves the (outrageous) $37 fee.

We pulled in here for a brief stay in order to visit Capitol Reef NP. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. You have to drive briefly through a trailer park to get here, but that is not part of the KOA (although it is visible from parts of the park). There is plenty of shade and lots of grass. Some sites are a little close together, but others seem spacious. All-in-all nicer than you expect of a KOA. WiFi was good and Verizon AirCard worked well. We would stay here again.

This park claims to have earned an award at some point in the past, and you can certainly see remnants of its former "glory", but it is looking a bit run down. Grass is dead, weeds are growing up through the gravel, and the "paved" roads are broken and cracked with potholes. All in all a typical KOA. It was a convenient point to access both Zion and Bryce, so I guess we'd stay here again if we were in this area, but it is not worth the rate we paid. Wi-Fi worked well and Verizon AirCard had a strong signal.

WOW! What a great park. Rate reflects the fact that this website does not accept $103, which is what we paid for one of their premium, high-end sites with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor TV, the works! This is a great place. Don't stay anywhere else in Vegas! Convenient to the Strip and still far enough out of town to be enjoyable. Only complaint is the WiFi did not work well, thus the 9 rating. Verizon aircard was good, though.

Nice clean park, well cared for. Convenient location. Did not use laundry facilities, restrooms or pool. WiFi was OK and Verizon air card worked well. With 2 air conditioners running, we did not hear any of the noise that others talked about.

As stated by others, this park is older, but pretty nice. Very convenient to Phoenix and close to the interstate, but noise is not a problem due to bushes around the perimeter of the park that muffle the noises. We did see evidence of the steep entry and exit, but we did not scrape. The exit seems steeper than the entry, so if you are worried about scraping, perhaps you could get permission to exit through the entrance. This landscape is not our cup of tea, but for the southwest, I guess it is the norm. Wi-Fi worked well, as did Verizon air card. We would have wished for cable TV. After eliminating the Spanish channels, the religious channels and the paid programming channels, there really are only about 5 channels that come in on air TV. We did not use the pool or bathhouse, but we did use the laundry and it was nice.

Rate reflects KOA card discount. This is your typical KOA. Not great, not terrible. It is very convenient to the National Park and worth it for a couple of days stop-over to see the park. Place is all gravel and very dusty - typical western campground. Wi-Fi worked good, as did Verizon aircard.

For what this is - hookups at the far end of a parking lot, with a gravel site, within easy walking distance to the casino - it was great! As long as you come to it with that understanding, no problem. The rate reflects exactly what it was "free". I know there were comments here about having to buy some kind of card, and getting free slot play, but none of that happened to us. It was free - period! We signed in and they said "good luck". We did get a players card (we consider them sort of a souvenir) and $10 free slot play with it. For an overnight stop, if you like the casinos, this can't be beat!

We stay here every time we come to the casinos, but mostly for the convenience and not necessarily for the amenities. We like the shuttle service that we can take to Harrah's and then the Harrah's shuttle over to the Roadhouse, Horseshoe, and GoldStrike. Verizon air card works good, so we have not tried the Wi-Fi. The one bad point is that we have dogs, so we are put in the "dog" section of the park, which is not well maintained, and owners do not pick up after their pets.

We had a couple of days to kill between two scheduled stops and this place just happened to be half-way, so we stayed here. It is a very nice park, with lots of trees, grass and shade. Unfortunately, the Buffalo area itself does not have much to recommend it, so we would probably not stop here again.

Although we were literally only here a few hours, we were very impressed by this park. It has concrete pads and well manicured, large sites. It is a very, very nice park. Verizon wireless aircard worked great. The only thing that would make it nicer would be to have paved roads, but the gravel roads were well graded and smooth. We did not try the Wi-Fi.

Location, Location, Location! This park has a great location! Very near the north entrance to the park, and as one posting noted, if you get one of the premium sites on the upper level, you will have a great view. On the other hand, even the premium sites are very close together and the non-premium ones are so close it looked like some people could barely get their slides out. With such demand for sites in and around the Yellowstone area, you can hardly blame them for "packing" the sites in. Other than that, the park was nice enough, but nothing spectacular. Verizon wireless card worked fine. We did not try the wifi.

As noted in the previous review, this park is a little run-down. They keep the area around the office up well, but the sites are poorly maintained and the roads are in pretty bad shape. Also, in spite of what the office staff might tell you, Verizon service is very poor and Verizon air card is completely unreliable. Cable TV is a separate fee and Wi-Fi is $4/day. For a "city park" like this, they would do well to upgrade sites, give cable and Wi-Fi free and charge a few dollars more. If the drive from Polson had not had a lot of road construction, we would have simply stayed up there.

I guess this is the right place to review the condo park that is attached to the KOA, but they really are 2 separate parks. We rented a space at the condo park, not the KOA. This is truly a first class RV park. Granted it is very new and the landscaping is still filling in in places, but it is great, nevertheless. The people were very friendly, the sites are beautiful with a distant view of the lake. Verizon broadband air card worked beautifully. Wi-Fi was good, too. Cable had 60 or so channels - just a first class park!

This was a better-than-average KOA park. We had a great "deluxe" site with concrete patio, free Wi-Fi and swing, which made the stay even better. As previously stated, there is a lot to do in the park, if you can stay out of Yellowstone long enough to enjoy it. Only complaints - Verizon signal was very poor and the aircard did not work at all. Wi-Fi was strong, but bandwidth deteriorated if too many people were on.

This place is great and you can't beat it for the price. We had no trouble finding it, but the one-way streets do make it a bit of an effort to get here. The people were extremely nice and the park was well-staffed and well maintained. The sites are a little close together, but we have come to expect that from an in-town park. Our only complaint is that the WiFi requires a fee and not many parks are still requiring that.

This was a very typical KOA - great location, great potential, but just doesn't live up to that potential. Landscaping was terrible, grass at our site was not mowed. It took us almost an hour to get our rig level. The "paved" site we were on had paper thin asphalt with lots of sunken areas and lots of deep marks from prior visitor's jacks. The wifi was weak at our site. The people were very nice and you can't beat it for location, so we would stay here again, if we had to.

We loved this park! The people were very warm and friendly, the park was small, but well-kept and very clean. We did not use the restrooms, but the laundry room was very clean. The pet area was small, but well maintained. We used their dog sitting service, which was a blessing for us, as we took the day trip to Victoria. We also did a day trip to downtown Seattle via the ferry and it was so much easier than trying to drive there.

Very nice park. Very remote and a bit rustic, but beautiful area. Our campsite overlooked the lake. The only problem was wi-fi was spotty and Verizon air card was not broadband, so internet access was not good.

Great Park. Very well kept, very quiet. Great base camp for lots of sightseeing. Near to Portland, wine country, even did a day trip to the Columbia River Gorge and Mt Hood. Would stay here again.

This campground is beautiful. Nicely landscaped with large, level sites. We ran our fan to drown out the I-5 noise, so it really didn't bother us. Not very pet-friendly. We would not stay here for more than a day or two because of that. Long walk up to the pet area that is very poorly maintained. Rating of '8' is mostly based on that. Wi-fi was spotty.

This was our second time to stay here and both visits have been great. This year, it was earlier in the year and the grass hadn't come in good, but other than that everything was very nice and well-maintained. Having the casino within walking distance was a real plus.

This was certainly a rally park, not a resort, but we were still very happy here. Yes, the sites are a little small (over 40 feet has a special area, I think), but they were nice enough to move us to a site we requested that was an end site with extra grass and extra room. The people were very friendly and especially very dog friendly. When you come, you simply must 'do' LazyDays. They leave all the RVs on the lots open and you can just wander through and dream! As someone else stated, the sales people don't bug you, but will answer all your questions. One comment on the free meals. We ate them a few times and found them to be simple, yet filling. Certainly not as much as we would have gotten at a restaurant, but all we needed! And they were FREE!

We, too, were reluctant to stay because of comments about the smell and got the same story - the smell is from the lake. Unlike the other posting, we DID smell a slight chemical smell at times, which did not smell like the lake at all. However, it was not really a big deal and not a reason to avoid this nice park. The staff was very helpful, our only complaint is that the sites are pretty small and close together. We were NOT offered a choice of sites when we checked in or we would have taken one of the larger, longer sites for more money.

We loved this park. Although small, it was well kept and well landscaped. The people were very friendly and very accepting of our dogs.
