Good location for many attractions. Check-in was easy and staff was friendly. In fact, we were taken by golf cart to pick our campsite. This is a large park, with easy/wide roads and includes many trees that provide shade. Patio covered picnic tables are throughout the campground. Our site was level and clean. Site include picnic table and fire pit. Wi-Fi was very weak. Verizon phones were able to get 4G service. Many campers were long term, and these RVs appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Close to grocery stores (Walmart/Safeway), fast food, restaurants and gas stations. Close to freeway access (I-90). DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. While at this campground we visited Deadwood, Devils Tower and Sturgis. We also took the famous Spearfish Canyon Scenic drive.
We find it hard to call this campground a resort. Campground did not have our reservation when we arrived. However, the staff was friendly and did provide us a campsite. This style of bookkeeping concerns us, as if it was a holiday week we wouldn’t have been provided a campsite. The campground is very close to 2 major freeways, which procedure a lot noise inside the park. Many campers were long term, and these RVs appeared rough and presented a negative look on the park. Arrived at our site which needed much cleaning. The fire pit AND the site were full of trash. Campsites are close together. Many of the buildings need much TLC, including the bathrooms. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue getting a signal. Verizon phone was able to get 4G. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. Campground is one hour from Chicago. Grocery stores and dining are about 15 minutes from campground. Campground includes mini golf course, lake, clubhouse and beach lake. Roads were wide and provide easy access into your site. Many sites include full trees, so if you have a roof top satellite, inform the office during checkup or when making reservations.
Bring your bug spray! No staff or station was available upon check-in. Campground was clean and included many trees for campsite shade. Our campsite was level and included a view of the river. Pull-through sites are also available. Verizon phone was able to get 4G signal. Make sure you pick an open site, as we were not able to get a satellite signal (space E13). Campground within 8 miles of the freeway (I-80) and 15 minutes away from the Coralville Mall, which includes; dining, shopping, theaters, indoor ice skating rink, grocery, hardware store (Lowes) and gas stations.
Beautiful campground just off the lake. Campground has tight/narrow roads which made it difficult getting into our site. No staff or station was available upon check-in. Small town grocery store and gas station nearby, within 5 miles. Campground about 10 minutes from major freeway. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Verizon phone was able to get 4G signal. Boat ramp and fishing available within the park. Many of the campsites are covered by full trees that produce shade. Our site had full service at a good price.
One of our favorites state parks on this 2 year journey RVing the US. Very clean park. Check-in was smooth and staff was friendly. Campground includes boat ramp, tent camping, cabins, kids playground and dedicated swimming area off the lake. Our campsite was level and site clean. Verizon phones got weak 4G. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue getting signal. Campground is about 10 minutes from freeway (I-90) and 30 minutes from a decent grocery store. Our only issue is the late checkout time, which is 4 PM, so don’t arrive too early. Reservations available online for this state park. While at this campground we visited Falls Park in Sioux Falls and the Corn Palace.
Good location to stop and rest. Check in was smooth and staff was friendly. Campground is close to freeway, which produces noise within the park. Campsites are close together and campground can use some TLC. Close to Al’s Oasis Shopping center (groceries, gift shop, gas station, and diner). Verizon phone received 4G signal. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Wi-Fi was strong and reliable. Missouri river across the highway, which includes hiking trails and boating.
Check-in was easy and staff was friendly. Good location for many attractions, but comes with a cost. There are many campgrounds to choose from in the area, and after staying here, we would probably pick another park. While checking in, we were provided a list of rules, but discovered this campground does little to enforce said rules. Very large park, which includes cabins and tent areas. Campground has large pet play area, mini golf course, and holds events for its guests. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. Wi-Fi only allows so many users, so we were unable to use it until other campers left the park. We complained to office a couple times, but the problem continued. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Campground is off highway 16, but we never heard traffic within the park. Gas station is less that 1 mile from the campground, which includes diesel. Roads throughout the park are wide and easy for big rigs. Super Walmart just 20 minutes, away. Bear Country drive, Reptile Garden and Fort Hays just down the street. While here we also visited Keystone, Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park. Our price included a discount for attending a required membership meeting, and this is where our experience changed. A lady conducting the meeting made a couple scary comments; we were not able to leave the building to discuss or think about their membership, or the price goes up… but the most awful comment was made about the comment card we received during check-in. This lady states these comment cards are not considered for evaluation for non-members. It seems this campground only cares about members and if you are a non-member you will be ignored.
We enjoyed our time at Buffalo KOA. Check-in was easy and staff was friendly. Campground is close to a couple freeways (I-25 and I-90) and gas station. Campground swimming pool was clean. Our campsite was a deluxe site that included lounge chairs, swing, picnic table and BBQ table. Propane fill-up station is available. Inexpensive laundry. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. A small river flows through the park, but it’s located in tent camping area. Many campers were long term, and these RV’s appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. We visited Buffalo historic town, which includes many stores and restaurants. The TV show Longmire is based on this town, and they hold a yearly festival, which actors from the show attend.
We had a wonderful time while at this campground, which included going to some close by attractions. Park staff was friendly and helpful and included free ice cream bar for the family. Our campsite needed some minor leveling. Campground provides some sites without sewer, but charges for using the dump station. Bathrooms were clean. WiFi was very weak. We had no issues getting our DirecTV signal. Verizon phone was able to get 3g only. Expensive laundry; $2 to dry and $2 to wash. Closest decent grocery store is in Hardin, 20 mile drive. Campground is one exit from Little Bighorn State Park, Trade store, Casino and gas station. We also recommend the Bighorn County Historical Museum, large outdoor exhibits.
We enjoyed our stay at this campground. This campground has a parking lot feel, but was close to many attractions, dining and shops within Williams. Campground is close to active railroad tracks, but we enjoyed the sound and sight of trains. Campground is next to the Grand Canyon Railroad station, which we highly recommend. This train ride takes you into the Grand Canyon, and includes a western show before you leave. No fire pits at the campsites. Laundry room and bathrooms were amazing: very clean and large. Wi-Fi was strong. We had no issues getting a DirecTV and Verizon 4G signal. We found the price high considering the campground is near railroad tracks and has the parking lot feel. We would camp here again.
We enjoyed our time at this campground. In fact, we visited the other RV parks nearby and found Oasis Resort the best park while visiting Vegas. This park is only 5 miles from the Vegas strip. Park includes an on-site restaurant, gift shop with some grocery items, movie room, and fitness room. Campground is busy, but well maintained. Grocery stores, fast food, dining, and Bass Pro Shop just down the street. Mobile RV cleaning service was available, including a propane filling station.
This state park includes many actives: Frisbee golf course, fishing, hiking, boat dock and picnic areas. There are two camping sections within this park. One section is heavily wooded, and the other section in an open field. We found the section in the open field of the park to be our favorite with better views and most sites included sewer hookups. As you enter the park, a gift shop and museum are at the entrance. Our site was level. Only a few sites within the wooded area were able to a DirecTV satellite signal. Our Verizon phones got a weak 3G signal.
This park offers a good view of the Snake River, but this view comes with great sacrifice. The manager is obsessed with lawn care and lacks any customer service skills. Bugs are a big problem, probably due to the amount of water used on the lawn and the manager's refusal to use any type of pesticide. We setup a bottomless tent to help protect us from the many bug bites, but the manager required (not requested) we move this tent every three days so he could water the lawn. Tent campers were required to move their tents every day. Even during a holiday weekend, the manager turned on the sprinklers, preventing fellow campers from playing lawn games. I approached the manager about the tent moving and bugs, and I was “shocked” when he walked across the field, got into my face (literally inches away) and said “If you can’t like it, you can leave.” Our group was surprised & upset by his reaction, but we decided to stay and move the tent every three days. Laundry room was clean, but one washer was not reliable, as it would stop working mid-wash. Wi-Fi worked well from our site. Campground is surrounded by long term mobile homes owners. RV sites are on grass, not rock or pavement. RV needed some leveling. Since you parked on grass, spider webs surrounding your RV was a constant cleanup/fix. The manager would not allow us to use any bug spray as “it would hurt the grass”. This manager has no concern to the wellness of the people who camp here. Closest grocery store with decent prices, restaurants and freeway requires a 30 minute drive.
We enjoyed our time at this campground. Beautiful mountain views. Campsites only include water and electric, but a dump station is available. Campground is close to an old mining town (Goldfield) with shops and restaurants. Campsites are large and had some distance from fellow campers. Hiking trails were available throughout the park. We had no issue getting a DirecTV and Verizon 4G signal. Freeway access and grocery stores is about 20 minutes away. We would camp here again.
We really enjoyed our time here. We booked far in advance for a site along the lake and it was amazing. All campsites come with a fire pit and picnic table which is covered by a metal awning. Sites are large and have good distance from other campers. Campsites only have water and electric but a dump station is available. We moved to another site a week later and discovered the desert views were just as amazing. Boat ramps and hiking trails are available around the park. We liked the restaurant (Scorpion Bay) which is located within the park. Freeway access is about 20 minutes away. We would camp here again.
We stayed at this campground for 2 weeks and went hiking on many of the trails. The Wind Cave trail was our favorite. We were not pleased with one of the camp hosts hired for this season, as they allowed their kids to utilize an ATV to zoom through the park and around blind corners at speeds much higher than posted limits. Campsite fire-pit was still full of old burned out firewood. Campsite was level. Campground included playground for kids. Bathrooms were clean. Campsite included a concrete picnic table. Park is close to freeway access and close to major cities within the eastern Phoenix area.
Pismo Village provided many features we had not experienced in other campgrounds: an onsite cafe (serves breakfast, lunch and dinner), arcade room, mini golf, and fully stocked store. From our campsite, 73, we were able to hear the high tide of the ocean. Our space was level. The campground offers multiple gates with direct access to the beach and it is within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, and Pismo Pier. We also took a 1 hour drive to Hearst Castle, and 30 min drive to Morro Bay/San Luis Obispo and Solvang. Our only complaint was that check-in is really late (4 PM), however, we arrived at 3:30 PM and had no issue. Sites within the north section are in the best part of the campground. Sites seem larger.
We really enjoyed our time at this small, clean, cozy campground. We visited the other campgrounds nearby, and found this to be our favorite in the area. Friendly and very helpful owner. Old style restaurant with good home cooking just 3 minutes down the road. No cell phone reception on our Verizon phone. Wi-Fi was strong but had a data limit use. Park is 30 minutes from Yosemite’s west entrance. Laundry could use some TLC. Closest grocery store and other restaurants are in Groveland, which is a 15 minute drive. Be sure to utilize New Priest Grade when driving from the west.
Good location for many attractions within Columbia and Jamestown. This campground is next to the Columbia Heritage State Park, which includes many attractions and restaurants. Park layout made some sites difficult to get in and out of. Trash cans were overfilling during our week stay. Many campers were long term, and these RVs appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Campground staff was friendly, but this park needs some TLC. We suggest visiting the Jamestown Railtown and Columbia Heritage State Park.
We enjoyed our time at this campground. This is a very clean park. Park is close to restaurants and grocery shops. Easy access to freeway, but being close to the freeway also creates some noise throughout the park. Premium spots include a river view, but also a view of the freeway. We found this place to be very buggy so bring your insect repellent. Park also included small pet yards and a pet wash. WiFi was good, getting satellite was easy and our Verizon phone reception was strong. Recreation hall, pool, spa and laundry facilities were very clean and impressive. Gas stone fire pits and seating areas are located outside both recreation halls. We found this park to be expensive.
This small campground has some on the best river views from the campsites. This is a small and clean park. Wi-Fi was good. Park staff was friendly. Our site was level. We were able to get a DirecTV satellite signal with some work, as the park is surrounded by many tall trees. Our Verizon phones had no trouble getting a signal. Some campers were long term, and these RVs appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. A small drive of 10 minutes gives you access to major shops, gas stations, fast food and restaurants.
This state park provides large sites, especially the lower section off the lake. Many sites have a great view of the lake or easy access. Our site was heavily covered by trees and included a picnic table and fire-pit. We were not able to get any DirecTV satellite signal. Verizon signal was very weak. Surprisingly, our site was level. We utilized this campground to sightsee some locations in southern Washington. Freeway access and grocery shops are about 30 minutes away. Rangers were friendly and helpful.
We utilized this campground while visiting Seattle. Our site was near the river, but heavy bushes prevented any view of it. Campground is about 10 minutes from freeway access. Our campsite needed some leveling, which wasn’t a surprise, as all sites are on grass or dirt lots. Since this area produces a lot of rain, not being parked on concrete pads can get muddy. Fire rings were available on all sites. This campground provides very few sites with full service. Most sites, including ours, did not have sewer, and we only had 30 amp electric service. A dump station was available. Some campers were long term, and these RVs appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Wi-Fi was great and constant. Nearby shops and dining was available. Park manger/owner was friendly and helpful. Park could use some TLC.
This park is in need of much help. Many campers were long term, and these RV’s appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. The Snake River is blocked by trees. Park includes a large grass area, but you are not allowed to walk your dogs on this lawn. Site was not level, in fact, just getting out of our site was a challenge as there is a large drop-off from the site to the driveway. Campground is small and in poor conditions. Check or Cash payment only. Closest grocery store with decent prices, restaurants, and freeway requires a 30 minute drive.
This park is on Hebgen Lake and offers great mountain views. Park managers were very friendly and helpful. Campground offers boat rentals for daily use. Laundry room was clean. Office also includes a small gift shop and allowed us to have mail delivered. However, this park has a bug problem. These so-called “May bugs”, do not bite, but these bugs swarmed everywhere and covered our RV and truck. Out of seven days, we were only able to enjoy one day outside. We had a bottomless, screened tent, but the park would not allow us to use it. If you have a bug problem, I believe the park should bend the rules during that time. Campground was well maintained, but the amount of dog debris left on the lawns and within the dog park was alarming. Our site was level. This campground is about 20 minutes from Yellowstone’s west entrance and town. West Yellowstone offers many stores, grocery shops, gas stations and restaurants. Wi-Fi was really bad and many times the server was not available. Our Verizon phones could only get a weak 3G signal. We recommend everyone visit the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, an amazing, open cage experience.
We had a wonderful time here. Campground has an on-site gift shop with some grocery items and ice cream station. Park staff was friendly and helpful and allowed mail delivery. Our campsite beside the Yellowstone River was surrounded by beautiful mountain views. The campground is 30 minutes from Yellowstone’s north entrance. The laundry room, bathrooms, and game room (with pool table) were very clean. Wi-Fi was very slow and sometimes the server would not be available. No campfires at campsite, but park does have a nightly group campfire near the office. Picnic tables are available at all campsites. Our Verizon phone had a decent signal with 4G service. Getting a DirecTV satellite signal was easy. A small grocery store with limited supplies is within 5 minutes of the park. A full grocery store, fast food, restaurants and freeway access is 20 minutes away.
Our experience differs somewhat compared to some other reviewers. Our family travels throughout Arizona and California, traveling once a month. This was our fourth time visiting Cottonwood and decided to check out Thousand Trails. During our check-in process, a Ranger approached the vehicle asking for our card. Card? We informed her that reservations were made online. Her response was; “Oh, you are retail people”. Retail people? As we searched the park for a space, we found all spaces that included 50 amp service and sewer were extremely close together. I mean really close, with no real estate between you and your neighbor. You can actually hear the TV or voices coming from within your neighbor's RV. Also, use caution while traveling the streets within the park, as they are very narrow. Vehicles or RV's leaving and coming into the park travel this same narrow road. On day two, we approached the Ranger station during “business hours” and paused at the gate, thinking the Ranger on duty would open the gate. But, we were mistaken as the Ranger rudely explained. He stated, “We provided you a gate key code on check-in; we ask that you use it”, and walked away. Some of the long term trailers appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Our site included large red ants and multiple ant hills. Our site was not level. Phone reception was very weak and Wi-Fi is only available at the clubhouse. As active hikers, we found the trails to be sub-par. During our last day, we were preparing breakfast and getting ready to sit outside. As we exited our trailer, someone from the park was at our campsite painting our picnic table. Really? This couldn't wait until we left?
This is a unique, old style campground. Park was very quiet, clean, included scenic trails, and is conveniently located near the heart of Prescott. Some of the trails take you to Watson Lake and Willow Lake. It’s a small drive to the historic Prescott's Whiskey Row, where many shops and restaurants are available. Our site was surrounded by trees, rocks, and bushes. Roads and sites are unpaved, just dirt. Park includes both back-in and pull-through sites. The staff was very friendly. As always, we travel to other campgrounds when visiting a new location. We determined this was the best campground in the area. We plan on visiting every year. Please visit their website for more details and local attractions.
Park was very quiet, clean, and just outside the small city of Camp Verde. Our space was surrounded by trees (lots of shade) and level. Our space was tight (close) to other campers and provided little room for outside comfort. Space between you and fellow campers was minimal. Park offers hiking trails and a small pet playground. Be sure to visit Montezuma Castle and Fort Verde State Historical Park. This park is close to Sedona and Prescott Arizona. See website for more attractions and details.
Great location and value. One of the best parks I've visited throughout Arizona. This state park now accepts reservations online. Park includes fishing, many hiking trails, great customer service, clean environment and many local attractions. Blazing M Ranch (western dinner show) is within walking distance; Jerome's mining town is nearby, along with Wild Animal Park (safari ride - feed the animals) and Camp Verde's train ride. This State Park is also located close to Prescott and Sedona. See website for more local attractions and details.
This campground is a state park, which recently started accepting reservations. We were so excited. The campground includes fishing, tent sites, hiking trails, small engine boating and much more. Streets are wide, allowing easy back-in. Spaces are large, level and surrounded by trees. Some sites have a great view of the lake. Camp hosts were friendly and park was very clean. Please view their website for more details and local attractions. We visit this park yearly.
Kartchner Caverns is a wonderful state park, which now takes reservations. Two caverns are available for tours, which is given by park staff. Park includes a museum, gift shop, cafe, hiking trails and much more. Pull through sites are 50amp and back-in sites are 30amp. The park is also located close (30 mile drive) to Tombstone AZ. Please view the campgrounds website for more details and local attractions.
Trailer Village is a great place to stay if visiting the Grand Canyon. In fact, if you want to stay at the Grand Canyon and want hook ups, this is the only option. The site we stayed at was not level, therefore, be ready to make some adjustments. Many trees surround the campground and RV sites, so be very careful not to scratch the top or side of your RV. Just before you enter the RV park, a Market Place is available. This shopping center includes a gift shop, cafe, groceries, post office, and bank (Chase). We were surprised one morning, as we exited our trailer we were greeted by a family of deer walking through our RV site. This was a wonderful surprised. The park can use a good clean-up and tree trim. Please visit their website for more details.
McDowell Mountain Regional Park is a wonderful state park. The McDowell Mountains and Superstition Mountains produce outstanding views and sunsets. The sites are paved, level and include a good amount of distance from other campers. Ranger led tours are available, including trails for hiking and bike riding. Electric power was stable and water pressure was great. Park has no sewer hookups, but a clean dump station is available. Park is close to Fountain Hills, which includes gas stations, grocery stores, shops, parks and dining. See their website for more details, park event planning and local attractions.
This park is near the Historic Route 66 town in Williams, AZ. The campground includes many pull through RV spots and cabins. The park is surrounded by forest and walking trails. The park owners were friendly and park was very clean. This park is close to the town of Williams, which includes many gift shops, historic restaurants and the Grand Canyon Railway. The RV park includes an indoor swimming pool, two spas, pool table, air hockey table, volleyball court, pet park, gift shop and much more. Propane was also available onsite. Only issue we discovered was the sound of the distant train during the night. Please view their website for more details and local attractions.
Pros: Friendly staff. Clean park. The Disney shuttle is available at the campground, which was a bonus. Shuttle runs every 20mins for $4.00 per person – per day. Shuttle tickets are available at the park. You are able to view Disney’s fireworks (Fri, Sat and Sun) from the park, but be warned, they are loud. Hook-ups were conveniently located. In fact, our spot had two separate sewer drops. RV spot was concrete and level, which also included a picnic table. Cons: Parking lot style RV Park. Campground located next to a pre-school and the I-5 freeway, which both produced noise within the park. Park is not surrounded by any walls or fence... which seemed very odd and not safe for unsupervised children. Wi-Fi reception was very poor. Walking to Disney from the RV Park is difficult (long), as the freeway is between both locations. RV spots seemed close together.
