The owners are some of the nicest we have ever encountered. We get a kick out of their humorously state campground rules, love the pets and the cookies on arrival. This is high desert lava flow country though, so the sites are just gravel pads with no plants-feels sort of like an old fashioned drive-in movie lot. The view is spectacular and the park is far enough from I-40 that there is no incessant freeway roar. They go all-out for breakfast here with cereal, pastry, milk, juice, etc. in a breakfast bar/breakfast room at one end of the camper store. There is also a well-stocked paperback exchange. My only complaint is that the WiFi is only free for 1 hour. We stay here at least once a year.
Lots of big shade trees, grass, flowers, plenty of room between sites. We got a beautiful back-in site right on the banks of the Yellowstone River. This is the nicest KOA-both staff and facilities- we have encountered.
The new owner is very pleasant to deal with; they were having problems with their computer and she had us park and register later rather than stand around and wait in the office for the problem to be fixed. Sites are crowded together as is typical in areas with a lot of tourists. A major issue with the park is that apparently some big new pipeline project was starting the following week and a great many of the sites were being occupied by construction workers and their families who were going to be there for weeks or months, so the park looked and felt a bit too much like a low-rent trailer park rather than an RV resort catering to tourists. We were only able to get a site because our motorhome is a 20' Roadtrek; travellers in big rigs were being turned away.
This is not a fancy RV park by any means but it is the only one in the immediate area and a pleasant surprise to encounter. Sites are mostly grass or gravel and there are plenty of shade trees and a large open grassy area. Restrooms are clean and basic with a "summer camp" feeling-painted cement floors, cold water only for the hand basins and home made decorations. There is no laundry room, TV, Internet, or other amenities of that type. There is an on site host who was very helpful. The check-in was easy and the owner friendly and pleasant. We will definitely stay there again.
Restroom immaculate, beautiful showers. Sites well-spaced. Best WiFi signal I have had in 5 weeks of camping in different RV parks and at no charge. Nice lounge with games, TV, paperback exchange. Gift shop with excellent Native American jewelry. Complimentary popcorn in the afternoon, tea and coffee in the morning. This park is almost at the Mesa Verde National Park entrance and a good value for the price. I felt like a welcomed guest-no hint of trying to extort the maximum from tourists near a major attraction that we have encountered at some other RV parks. We will definitely stay there again.
There are different classes of sites with different prices. Premium big rig sites are farther apart and have nicer landscaping than the rest of the park. Perhaps the people who like this park got one of those sites. We are completely self-contained in a 20' Roadtrek but were given a tiny site jammed in amidst the tent trailers and small pick-up campers. The rear window of the RV behind us was about 12 inches from ours so that we could see right into their rig and vice versa. I have never had such a small site in all my many years of camping in RV parks!The park has WiFi but charges $4-$5 per day for it. The clerk did not explain why there was a difference in the rate. Overall, she seemed rushed and condescending, as though she was doing us a favor in letting us park there at all. We will never go back.
