Great park if you want a very kid-friendly, group-friendly place. Weekends are jammed with kids, dogs (on leash), and associated gear---bikes, pedal-carts, etc. We had two different sites here this past week. The first with full hook-ups was roomy but felt exposed and out in the middle of three rows of RV's; the second partial hook-up site had more trees but the ground was full of squirrel holes, uneven and hazardous to walk on. Riverfront sites have no sewer but are scenic; group sites and individual tent sites are often very shaded and nicely tucked away for privacy. Laundry room was well-maintained and reasonably priced. If you drive 8 MPH instead of the posted 7 mph speed limit, expect to get screamed at by a Workkamper; some staffers were a bit "over the top" with their authority and power. Those driving big rigs or large trailers may want to skip taking the roads from Graton via Bohemian Hwy and take the River Rd. through Guerneville, instead. Also, the address for the camp is Duncan Mills, but it actually seems to be in Monte Rio.

Overall we had a good experience but there were two negatives: 1. There is no signage on the roads into and within Bodega Bay that indicates where the park is. The AAA CampBook has incorrect directions, and the Garmin GPS we have also led us on a wild goose chase on the narrow and winding Hwy. 1. 2. When we tried to call the park for directions, we got the unhelpful after hours voice mail (they close at 5 PM and we were calling about 6 PM). We just kept driving north on Hwy. 1 and finally found the park on the north end of town with the one sign they have posted in front. The positives: Level, gravel sites with smaller trees that don't really provide shade, but the coastal fog made shade unnecessary. Park is clean and was filled with an RV group when we were there---they seem to cater to groups/clubs and have meeting spaces for them. Wi-fi was OK but a bit slow. There is a community park next door for dog walking but for scenery and beach access, one of the state or county parks is better (but don't have hook-ups).

Great location for the wine country; lots for families/kids to do in the campground. Wi-Fi is pathetic and we won't stay here again, for this reason, as we do have some business to do, even when traveling for recreation. Tengo internet seems to be the KOA vendor of choice, and KOA should choose again.

This is a great little stopover about 7 miles east of Austin, or even as a destination visit if you want simple R & R, peace and quiet (despite being right off Highway 50, a very lightly used road). Shade, water spigots, flush toilets (but only in summer, I think, then only a vault is open), picnic tables, and fire rings. Sites are paved or gravel. Caution: there are coyotes right in/very near the camp so if you have small pets, keep them safely inside or with you.

Despite being on the highway it is pretty quiet for a KOA. Very friendly, helpful staff/camp manager. Free ice cream, dog treats, and movie night. Park is gravel and occasional bits of grass, all with signs to keep pets off them. Two pet walk areas at each end of park but quite small. Lots of trees but many not large enough to give shade. Our spot was barely large enough to put 21 ft. RV and tow vehicle side- by-side, so picnic table was almost in the road. One of four rows of sites seemed to be full of long-termers. We would only stay here again as an overnight en route to somewhere else.

No reservations for any campground in Great Basin N.P. Both Lower and Upper Lehman have lovely spots along the creek with fire rings at each campsite. Vault toilets and water spigots around the campground. Many spaces are very un-level so bring lots of blocks if you plan to camp here in an RV. Most spots have either AM or PM shade. Good access to Lehman Caves and Visitor Center. Gas in Baker is pricey so plan accordingly; a few grocery stops and that's about it. Great Basin N.P. well worth a visit.

All the pros: Easy access from I-40 and 89 and good signage to help locate camp entrance. Accommodating staff anytime we interacted with them. Nice shady spots generally available and staff helped us find a site with afternoon shade for pets. Adjacent to USFS land so good hiking right outside our door. Clean restrooms and reasonably priced laundry. Now a few cons: Wi-fi spotty on the outer edge of camp, but very good when directly lined up with office. The sites along the edge (#1-20+) have unimproved electric from 1967, so that shared poles claiming 30 amps are unable to pull two A/C's, microwaves, etc. simultaneously, requiring negotiation between neighbors on who stays cool or cooks! Our RV is only 21 ft., but those with big rigs might have some problems getting around the pines and into some of the spaces; no problem for us. Road noise is obvious, given proximity to freeways but not as bad as many KOA's. We would definitely stay here again and get a site with single pole electric.

Lots of shade and grass. Small pool, but good on a hot day. Well-cared for campground, great internet connection. Some distant noise from I-70, but otherwise quiet. Convenient to Wally World and other such shopping.

Beautiful location with quiet and cool temps compared to much of the rest of AZ, and only about 1/3 full at peak season. An hours drive to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Lots of pines and shade. Toilets are chemical outhouses. Showers are $2.25 for five minutes, with a sign that says to let the water run for a minute before getting in, then to add quarters to gain an additional "2/3 minute". Hmmm. Stalls were cleanish with some mildew evident. Nearby Visitors Center for Jacob Lake and lodge/restaurant/gift shop had good info about the area and the canyon. Food there was average; staff helpful and friendly.
