In spite of what RV park reviews says, this park does not have pull through sites and is very limited for large rigs. In order to park our 40' motorhome here (in the largest spot which they had) we had to leave the park, go down the road, turn around, come in the exit and back into the site. It was really tight. This "largest spot" also did not have 50 amp service. But one thing it did have was lots of mosquitoes. It is basically a fisherman's paradise, and they are leaving day and night, revving up their engines and dragging away their boats. Peace and quiet it is not. We would not return.

We stay here often to visit family. Don't be put off by the approach to the park. The staff is great, the park is neat and tidy, the spaces are wide and long. We tow and have a 40' motorhome but have plenty of room. It's quiet, relaxing and really quite nice.

Without a doubt one of our most favorite campgrounds. If it's concrete and formal landscaping you want, this is not the place for you. Great pull-throughs, shade, peace and quiet. Even their store is great and well-stocked. We have been staying here for years when hardly anyone knew about it. Now it is always busy. You do need a reservation. There is so much to see in this area and even if you don't want to go anywhere, the view of Mt. Whitney is spectacular.

While this is not the spiffiest park on the planet, we enjoyed our stay here. The spaces were nice, level and wide enough to accommodate our big rig. As far as KOA's go, this is quite nice, as many KOA's we have encountered while crossing the US have been horrible in every way. The owners were delightful and worked hard to make everyone happy. Everything worked well, and we could not hear the freeway noise at all. The train horn was in the distance (but we love trains). We would stay here again.

This was a nice campground. Nothing fancy, but nice large sites for our beast and toad. Southern hospitality started in the office. The sites were level and had beautiful pecan trees. We would stay here again if in the area. Highly recommended.

We stay here often while visiting family in the area. While cosmetically it is not the most beautiful of parks, we have found everything else more than acceptable. they office staff has been VERY accommodating, in fact, they have gone out of their way. The sites are fairly level, It is convenient to shopping, the Interstate and Sequoia. We look for quiet and clean. If you want fancy, it is not Seven Feathers.

We have stayed here before and the park has gone downhill. For starters, they are way overpriced. Our site was a back-in, full hookup but nothing but dust and a lot of rocks which we had to move. There is absolutely no maintenance whatsoever. The staff at check-in was abrupt and barely friendly: kind of a 'take it or leave it' attitude. Our picnic table should have been used for firewood several years ago and the firepit looked like it had never been cleaned. Keep in mind that this rate was for off season. Given some TLC this place could be fantastic.

This park was adequate for a few nights in Reno. Our 40' motorhome just fit in the site, even though we paid extra for a deluxe site on the end. There is not much maintenance done here other than mowing the lawn. It's near a casino with shuttle service, but the casino is third rate (Boomtown). If we ever decide to stay in Reno again (which I doubt) we would probably stay here again because the choices for peace and quiet are very limited.

This is an okay park for a one-nighter. It lacks maintenance. Wi-Fi is horrible: it didn't work two years ago when we stayed here, and it still doesn't. The place is clean but nothing to write home about. I doubt we would stay here again.

We have stayed here before and it is a lovely campground with a great staff. There were two drawbacks for us, however. They charge for Wi-Fi and they are very, very limited with site access for big rigs. They plan on expanding the park in the next couple of years, so hopefully it will be more big rig friendly. Most sites are wide and staggered, which affords some privacy, the trees are huge, well-trimmed, there is nice landscaping and it is quiet. We would definitely return as Shingletown is a beautiful area close to Lassen NP and away from the city hustle and bustle of Redding.

This was a nice place to stay when visiting Crater Lake. This is an old campground that has been updated to accommodate larger motorhomes, fifth wheels and travel trailers. It is very quiet and rural with a few spots affording a semi-lake view. The owners are on-site (one pleasant and the other quite rude). We had no problems making online reservations and since this park is very busy, it's probably a good idea. The campground was full each night by 7 o'clock.

This is a perfect park. Quiet, beautiful trees, spotless sites which are extremely long and wide. We had a premium pull-through and it was worth every penny. Each site has its own trash can which is emptied quietly by staff every morning. A paper is at your door when you stumble from your coach. The sites have pavers, beautiful lawn and patio furniture. Those with GPS beware: your GPS will lead you down a road with very low clearance. Get directions from the campground. Do not use GPS!

Even though this park has many semi-permanent residents, it is very obvious that they will not let it get junky. The place is spotless. The staff is very friendly and helpful. With the exception of work traffic in the morning, it is a quiet park. The lawns are well-manicured, there is not a scrap of paper anywhere. We would have given it a 10 but for one thing: the speeders. They seem to think that because the roads are paved, they are city streets.

A spotless park, with some sites overlooking the golf course. It has paved streets (nice and wide), paved sites, paved patios, beautiful landscaping and friendly staff. What more could one want? The biggest pain is having to drive through Spokane city streets on 395 to get here. The most noise you hear is the sound of golf carts.

A nice park, especially if you have a waterfront site. Easy access in and out of sites for big rigs. We would have given it a 10, but the Wi-Fi is terrible. There is swimming, fishing, boats to rent, lots of geese and beautiful sunsets. The staff was very friendly, the park was very clean. It's right on the Spokane River which is lovely.

This is a nice park with easy access from I-90 and only a short ride (less than 2 miles from the exit). We arrived from Glacier over beautiful country roads with fantastic scenery. This park is very convenient to Lolo National Forest, which is lovely. Our site was long and level, with trees that did not interfere with our Big Rig. The only drawback we could see was the terrible Wi-Fi that was slower than dial-up. There was some road noise but not disturbing as at night it was minimal.

A nice park. Easy in and out for Big Rigs. We were given a choice of sites when we arrived and picked an end site away from the crowded big rig section. The Wi-Fi worked great as did everything else. It would have gotten a 10 except for the train noise, which although not really bothersome to us, may be to some. It's very convenient to West Glacier as well as Hungry Horse. We spent five nights here and they were all pleasant. We would go here again. Nice to see an RV park without the zillions of full and part timers with all their stuff.

A really nice KOA with a lot going on. Near all kinds of shopping. We stayed in a Premium site which had concrete patio, was wider than the standard site, had a swing, a fire pit and was really quite nice. A little occasional road noise but not a bother. The staff was extremely helpful and obviously enjoyed their work.

A nice park, but a bit noisy. The owner was always out and about making sure everything was okay. Nice friendly people. A lot of workers who are long term. Only drawback was the speeders.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this tidy little campground. It was spotless. Our site was large and level. The hotel restaurant was quite good and it was great for a one night stay. It was easy in and easy out and the hotel staff was very friendly when registering. We would stay here again.

This is a fairly nice park but needs a lot of work. Our site (#4) was adequate for our motorhome but was quite close to the neighbors on both sides. It did, however, have trees. The owners were very nice but do not seem to spend any time at all checking on the campground. There are some new big rig sites on one side of the campground and although they are long, and completely grassy, they have no shade and are also very close together. All in all, we probably would not stay here again, although N. Dakota does not offer a lot of choices. The Wi-Fi was sporadic, at best.

Surprisingly, this was a nice campground. Our site was ample for our motorhome with four slides, with easy in and out. The sites were a bit narrow but had some shrubs for privacy. It was quiet and peaceful. It rained hard during the night but there were no puddles or mudholes. A delicious BBQ served on Saturday nights either at the cookout site or delivered to your site. Really good food and reasonable. We would stay here again. Only annoyance was that Wi-Fi did not work.

If you are into noise, this is the place for you. On one side of the campground is a truck terminal. On the other is I-90, then a train track and then an airport. In our opinion, this park is just okay for an overnight as there is very little else in the area. The sites are fairly level. The grass is barely alive. You are also very close to your neighbor. We would not return.

This is a great park. Easy to find, wide gravel roads, level pads, easy access to a site. It is surely a family oriented campground on the weekends. The sites are wide, well groomed and spotless. The only reason we could not give it a ten was because of the noise from the Interstate.

This was a very nice park. It can easily accommodate big rigs, especially in the front of the park. The seasonal sites looked a bit tacky, but if you want an open area with full hook-ups, ask for sites 6, 7, or 8. You park on beautiful grass, your neighbor is close in opposite directions, but there is a huge amount of space in front of and behind the sites. The Interstate noise was not a problem for us either. BUT, whatever you do, do not use your GPS or Woodall's to get directions. CALL THE OFFICE. There are low bridges which are not marked, streets which are not marked and the main drag in town is completely torn up. Trust me on this.

We have never given a park a 10. But this one deserves it. It has everything. Quiet, wide, level sites, a nice pool, great store and lots of other amenities. The access roads are wide and easily navigable in a big rig (a real plus). We had site 169 which afforded a lot of privacy and a lovely view out our front window. If we are ever in this area again, we would stay here. You cannot be disappointed.

This park has a wonderful location, but you need to be careful about the spots you pick. We could have gotten our motorhome INTO the spot they chose for us but could not have gotten it out without a great deal of difficulty. Some of the sites with views are VERY close together at different angles, but others are not. The camper helpers were very friendly, the owners just so-so. The biggest drawback is that they have no sewer, so you must either unhook, drive to the dump station or have their service come twice a week to your site. If you stay a week, this service is free. With a large motorhome, I would either pick the 50 amp sites nearer to the office, or one of the back-ins on the right side of the park. Then there are no surprises. It was an okay park, but not one we would rush back to.

The past reviews obviously were done before this campground fell into disrepair. We made reservations several weeks in advance and were given a site which could not possibly begin to accommodate a 40 foot motorhome. It was full of potholes, large rocks and extremely uneven. They said "Sorry, but that's all we have." Apparently, if you are a seasonal camper, you are given preference. Just getting through the park was a challenge. They evidently do not enforce any rules whatsoever, as there were wash lines everywhere, junk everywhere, outside kitchens with junk piled everywhere. The grass, what there was of it, was a mess. Basically, it was a trashy trailer park. We left, very disappointed and found accommodations elsewhere. I don't know about others, but KOA seems, for the most part to be going down the tubes. I doubt, with the exception of one or two KOA's across the nation, we will not be using them again. AND they were charging an outrageous rate per nite.

This is a nice park for those with big rigs but it simply a basic place to park your rig while touring. It has absolutely no fringes whatsoever. There is NO shade and only 30 amp service so if it is hot you are out of luck. The owner was friendly, the Wi-Fi and cable worked without problems. This is probably your best choice in this area, but nothing to get excited about.

This is a nice park with lots of woods (almost feels like a state park). The sites are large and very private. It absolutely cannot handle anything over 40 feet. We enjoyed the park but there are a couple of drawbacks. Speeding through the park seems to be contagious. There were also several large dogs running loose on more than one occasion. Our sewer drain also needed help as we had to use rocks to hold the hose in place. There doesn't seem to be much maintenance nor anyone riding around to check on things. A little TLC would go a long way here. There are also a lot of "Seasonals" here, which may be why they don't bother.

This is camping at its roughest in a motorhome. The roads leading to the campground are very narrow, the roads in the campground are very rough. Our site was wide enough and long enough for a 40' motorhome and a toad and fairly level, but was very poorly maintained. There are a lot of permanent residents here and some of the trailers are not kept up. It seems they are very lax at enforcing their rules which is interesting since upon check in, you have to sign a paper that you are aware of the rules. A little TLC and this place would not be bad, but things like using the bulldozer on the 4th of July make it quite unpleasant. We would not return.

Beautiful entrance which belies the condition of the park. The sites are tight, not well maintained and very peculiar in their set up. You share water posts and cable with neighbors and they are not in the center between the sites which means you had better have a long hose and an even longer cable connection. It is a nice setting but there is much room for improvement. It is the KOA President's Award for 2008, but obviously they did it over the phone.

This was a nice park but with a 40' motorhome and a toad, it was really a tight squeeze. We had a nice site which was supposed to be deluxe but probably wasn't. The site was long and somewhat level. The staff was very friendly. There are seasonals but where we were they did not seem to be a problem. I would pick my site carefully.

This was a nice campground. Our site was ample in width and length for our motor home and our toad. That being said, some of the sites are very tight. There are a lot of seasonals here but we did not find it a problem. Nor were the trees a problem in our site. A lot of the sites are not level, so we would suggest checking your assigned site out before going there. Tooling around the park with anything large would not be an option. There are lots of children here (as you would expect).

This is without a doubt the worst KOA we have ever encountered. Upon entering, you are asked to go down around a circle which passes a waste cleaning facility (out in the open and exposed). We had what was referred to as a PULL THRU site, but there was another motor home parked ahead on the same site. When asking how we would be able to leave, the comment was "Oh, just pull thru the grass." Right! Drive a 15 ton motorhome over the lawn on a steep slope after it had rained. The place was cramped, the entire site is carved out of a hillside. If your camper is small, I guess that's fine. But it does not in any way work with a motor home. We did not stay. Instead, we stayed in a Truck stop (which was probably nicer).

This is a new KOA park, built from the ground up. It is absolutely delightful. The owners are friendly, helpful and courteous. There is site escort. All the roads are gravel, very wide and easy to use. The sites are long and level. We camped here in a 40' motorhome with a tow vehicle and never had to unhook. The sites are wide, lots of trees all neatly trimmed so as not to cause damage. The park is not quite complete but that is not a problem. There is a pool, playground for the kids. Cabins to rent. They are putting in a pond. It's a very park like setting and very quiet. We would come here again. if in the area.

Yes, it is noisy from I-65, but if you get a site in the "A" area, it is not bad. The sites are wide, level and grassy. We found the owner to be very friendly and very accommodating. We have camped here before and would do so again.

We would sooner park on the road than here. We pulled into a site which was so close to the pop-up next to us, we would have been on a first name basis within seconds, if not worse. It's hard to bend a coach in the middle, but we would have had to do so to get into the site. It is a trashy old trailer park masquerading as a resort. Don't be fooled. There is a rest area on the I-10 right on the other side of the fence with trucks coming and going day and night. We forfeited our money and left. Worst place we have ever been in, bar none.

This is a nice park. We needed some work done on our motorhome so are spending two weeks here. The super deluxe sites are very wide and could accommodate our big rig and toad nicely. Each site has a concrete patio, picnic table and large grassy area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is nearby to all sorts of shopping so is a good time for long vacationers to stock up on "stuff." Lots of trees and not much noise from I-80 although it is only about 1/4 mile away. If you are staying only one night, there are skinny sites in the front of the park. But almost all of the sites are large. We would surely return here if in the area.

This is a beautiful park. I don't know how much space some people need, but the sites are at least 70 feet long and 30-40 feet wide, with nice grass, picnic tables. all level. Some sites have fire pits as well. This is the third time we have stayed here and elected this time to stay four nights since it is such a great place. For tenters, there are beautiful grassy areas. There are also cabins for those who need them. There is a fishing pond, beautiful landscaping, lots of birds and not even a scrap of paper to be found floating around. It couldn't possibly get any better than this.

A very nice park. The newer sites in the back for Big Rigs are very spacious. They are nicely landscaped with a wood deck for each site and an iron patio set and barbecue. The only reason we gave it a 7 is because of noise from I-80 and because our site was not all that level (but workable). Great pizza when you don't feel like cooking. The trees are mature but not a problem. We were all the way on the back row and enjoyed looking out onto a farm.

This was a great campground. Since we have a big rig, we stayed in the newer area with long sites, all level. The entire place is immaculate. Since it is about 1-1/2 miles from the 25, it is quiet. Staff was friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond when called. We would definitely stay here again.

A very tidy park. Very friendly staff. Yes, some of the sites are tight, but a nice touch is a patio/deck with picnic table at the back of each site which gives a view of the beautiful mountains. There are trees which do not afford too much shade, but give a woodsy feel. The roads are paved, not dirt. The sites are gravel. Close proximity to everything in town and RMNP. We would stay here again.

This is a very clean and quiet park with a separate section for big rigs with very long pull-thrus. The sites were quite level, all gravel, no trees and my only complaint was that they were a little close together. The water and sewer hookups were somewhat strange but not a problem. For those who want to visit the Colorado National Monument, it is a perfect stopping place.

This is a beautiful campground in a beautiful setting. On checking in, the office was extremely professional and organized. All of the sites are back in but it was not problematic for our 40' motorhome. The sewer connections are toward the front of the sites which simply means you have to keep your rig toward the front of the site. For those who want WiFi, it is instant, free and works well. The peaceful sound of the river, no traffic noise, pine trees, steep rocky cliffs are all part of a great camping experience. If you want a concrete pad, commercialism and a zillion neighbors, this is not the place for you.

This park thinks highly of itself. It states "beautiful landscaping." With the exception of one small area, there IS no landscaping. Nothing but dirt and weeds. We stayed in the Premium Section. The rest of the park, which you see when you enter looks like Tobacco Road. There isn't much of a choice in Moab (which is surprising), but to call this a "Luxury Resort" is an overstatement. All in all, we were very disappointed.

This was a very nice KOA (they all aren't). We stayed here for 10 days as we needed to wait for an awning repair. We were very comfortable, the staff was friendly, the small wildlife abundant, and it was very relaxing. The park is meticulously clean. A nice picnic table on the site (not all worn and broken). The sites were very wide and comfortable. There were not many campers here as it was considered "off season."

This was a nice park but VERY difficult to move around a big rig. Office staff assigns spots with no regard as to how you can possibly make a ridiculous turn around a bath house. Luckily, we could scoot thru another site in the row behind us. Almost all the sites are extremely uneven and it almost impossible to level a Big Rig here. Since it really is the only option for Lake Tahoe, if we have to go there again I guess we will. But it is not our favorite spot.

We made reservations for two nights in this park (?) for a 50 amp, pull-through to accommodate our big rig. When we arrived on that date, they informed us that they had given away the last site which had 50 amp service and they only had 30 amp site left. They didn't seem to care in the least bit that it was impossible to spend two days without air conditioning and cooking facilities. The reservations were made in June for a September arrival. Luckily we found another spot in town at Hi-Desert RV Park, which was more than adequate for us. Evidently, this Model T Park is strictly first-come, first-serve: reservations or not, even though we arrived before 3 PM. If we ever find ourselves in Winnemucca again, we would sooner stay at The Flying J Truck Stop.

A beautifully maintained park, very knowledgeable staff, lots of creature comforts. It is mostly geared to adults after Labor Day, as we have stayed here twice. A resort feel...not your typical KOA. Convenient to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park and all the other sites of the area. Easy access for big rigs with no surprises. Much nicer than the other area campgrounds we checked out.

Clean, well-maintained park. Not for a long-term stay, but great for a night or two. Sidney is a nice little town and shopping at Cabela's is a must. All the sites have easy access for big rigs, a few trees, but not much shade. Easy access off of I-80.

A dumpy, out-dated park with a lot of deserted, old campers left around to rot. No maintenance done anywhere, many people had trouble getting their utilities to work. All in all, a truck stop or WalMart parking lot would be an upgrade. Needless to say, we would not return

Very, very over priced. Everything costs extra. A very busy place with absolutely no personal service. They ride around in carts all day and all they seem to do is pick up things that people have left behind, except the trash. More worried about taking your money than anything else. Laundry rooms were dirty and for the size of the campground, insufficient in size. Took a couple of days just to get the laundry done. Not our kind of place. Saw more of the Fish and Game Warden than anyone else. EVERYTHING COSTS EXTRA.

This is a very shabby park, overpriced, and has very tight spaces one to the next in opposite directions. The Interstate is very noisy and there were big rigs and VERY over-sized haulers arriving very late at night. The picnic tables were rotting away, the grass is almost non-existent. We had an "executive" site which gave us a small blacktop area on which to park our coach. KOA needs to get rid of this one. It is a disgrace. They have WiFi but charge for it. Imagine! That's on top of the $43 dollars a night.
