This is a very good basic KOA. The pads are paved, level, and the hook-ups are well placed. The room in between rigs especially the pulls throughs for the bigger rigs is close, but not unreasonable. The cable TV is very good, the WI-FI is mediocre to poor. Since the park is in a hilly area, the sites for smaller rigs and back-ins for bigger rigs ascends a hill. As you go up the hill the pads are still level but you get further away from the rest room/shower facility. Towards the end of the park you’re probably 175 yards away from those facilities and you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to them. The pool and laundry room are also up the hill. This park is a good base to explore the Monterrey area, Pinnacles National Park (both east and west side) and the Missions in the area. The park is very clean and well maintained. We stayed here in a 36' fifth wheel and there was a 40' class us next to us. Room to maneuver was adequate. You do get a lot of road noise from the 101 since your about 1/2 from it.
We stayed at what I guess is called the upper loop of Antlers. This is very much and in-the-woods type park. As noted in a previous review, there was no one to check us in when we got here. Apparently, off season staffing (mid September) is very light and if you show up at lunch time, you have to wait. Fortunately, we found some maintenance personnel that directed us to our site. The sites in the upper loop all appear to be very spacious, level with a good rock base, and have a cement patio with at least one picnic table. Many sites have two tables. The hooks ups at our site are all kind of clumped together and the sewer connection is one of those right angle hook ups so you need to look around for a rock to brace your pipe. Most – but not all – sites have 50 amp. We are staying in a very large pull through that only has 30 amp for some reason. When you make a reservation I would ask for site number and if it has 30 or 50. The sites all appear to have a good amount of shade from large Ponderosa pines so satellite users may have some problems. The cable TV provided is very basic and poor quality. Same for the WI-FI. The restrooms and showers appear to be kept very clean, but are at the back end of the loop. The lake does not appear to within easy walking distance and I have yet to locate the convenience store noted in the parks web site. It may be because the lake is exceptional low at this time and the closest boat ramp is closed. There is a very basic grocery store back by the I5 turn off. Signage into and around the park is not great - so go slow.
I would rate the main park as excellent with level asphalt pads, convenient hook ups, cable, and Wi-Fi. There is plenty of room to maneuver for larger rigs. The shower, rest rooms and laundry are all very good and well maintained. Since it’s a large park you might have a long walk to those facilities and it might have an impact on the Wi-Fi in the outer reaches of the park. There are dumpsters situated at the end of each row. I wish all parks were this nice. The annex is a different story so make reservations in advance if you want to stay in the main area. which speaks to the quality of the park. The only drawback I see is that no table is provided so bring one if you need it.
This is a very nice little basic park. Pads are long and level and with a nice rock base. Hook ups are conveniently placed. Good amount of room to maneuver. The park has a large number of cable channels and WI-FI. The shower, restroom, laundry facility is small, but kept clean. The park is well maintained and landscaped. It’s on the city limits between Tillamook and Bay City so you’re about 5 miles from the city center of either town.
This is a very nice small park just south of Olympia. Its supper clean, well maintained, nicely landscaped and set amongst some old growth pines. It’s also in close proximity to a Walmart, Costco, grocery stores etc. However, the main drawback is that it’s a former KOA and like older KOAs it’s VERY tight and a lot of the pull-throughs are very close together. You park in opposite directions and the slides on the rig next to me are about 2 foot from mine. There is no cable and for some reason you can’t pick up the major TV stations over the air. The office also serves as a Texaco gas station and convenience store. The 30 amp is a light 30 amp. The back end of the park is heavy forested and is pretty much for tenters and really small rigs. Not a lot can be done about how the park was laid out, but they need to rock the pads. When it rains you end up with mud and pine needles in you rig. Putting in 50 amp would also help to make it a great park.
This is a rustic park set amongst some great old growth trees. Packwood is between Mt. Rainer NP and Mt. St. Helens NM so it makes a good base for visiting both parks. I couldn’t get the address to register on my GPS but the park is right in the middle of Packwood on the north side of highway 12 directly behind the local library. The sign for the park is about a block west of the actual office which is a home trailer that has seen better days. The grounds themselves are flat but because of the huge trees in the park and the natural terrain the ground is kind of undulating in areas so bring some leveling blocks. The hookups are OK (30 AMP only) except if you want cable. Not all sites have cable. If you want cable make sure you mention that as you check in and have an extra-long coax because I had to extend mine to the next pad. One of the neat features of the park is its proximity to the library which has a small city park along side of it with some magnificent old growth pines. There are some benches there were you can sit and pick up the library Wi-Fi. However, the park now has its own Wi-Fi. There is a small elk herd that roams the park occasionally. If you’re coming in with a tall class A like an Essex or Marathon you may want to look around first because some of the roads in the parks have some low hanging utility wires. We did not use the restrooms/showers or laundry so I can’t comment on their condition. There’s only 3-4 picnic tables in the park so bring your own. A very limited number of the pads actually have a small asphalt patio but for the most part it’s camping in the woods.
I'm not as happy with this place as other reviewers. The reason is that after I paid and was walking out of the office the manager says Oh, by the way, we have a water main break so fill up your tank for the weekend because we're shutting the water off till at least tomorrow. I could have been told that up front. I was just hoping my pump worked since I hadn't use it for a long time. The park is a very clean and well maintained park. I would estimate its 80% permanent or full summer occupants since its adjacent to a golf course. The pads are paved, but you may still need some leveling blocks because the asphalt pads have troughs in them. There are no picnic tables so bring your own. The shaded sites are pretty much used by the long term occupants. The sewer connections are not centered so look at the distance before you unhook.
This is an "in the woods" type park. Check in is 1 PM period - so don’t show up before then. If you have a big rig, I would walk to your site before you pull in. Many sites have trees on both sides that will scratch your coach and/or take off your air conditioner. The guys at the desk seem clueless as to which sites these are so check it out yourself. Also, the sewer receptacle is an old style cast iron fixture that looks like a one armed fire hydrant. The problem is that its 14 inches tall so it creates a negative flow for your sewerage. The fixture does have a side outlet but you’ll need a rock to prop up your hose and keep it attached. The restrooms, showers, etc. seem to be kept clean and most of the sites are level. There is no Wi-Fi and my Verizon broadband card would not work. There is a lodge that seems to have Wi-Fi. There is also a gas station, convenience store, and restaurant.
This is an average RV park for seasonal mountain park - definitely not a resort. The problem is that there’s not a lot to choose from in the JacksonTeton area. The best parks are up outside of Yellowstone. This is just an old park and was apparently a KOA at one point in time. It has two sides: east and west and most of the big rigs are put in the east side. The spaces are very tight but I’ve been in tighter parks. Most of the pads appear to be level and most have been rocked recently. The 30 amp and 50 amp sites are mixed so even though you may have made a reservations for a 50 don’t assume you’ll get it. Check before you unhook. The park, rest rooms, showers and laundry are old but kept clean. There are a lot of mosquitos because the park has a small creek that flows through it. Anywhere close to water in the Tetons in the summer will have lots of mosquitos. Wi-Fi in the area is bad regardless of carrier. The parks convenience store and gas are high priced but you can go into the national park and get better prices. The park is about half way between Jackson and Yellowstone and is east of the main Teton highway 89 by about five miles.
A good park but over priced. What makes it good is its proximity to Rocky Mtn. NP and the common area amenities. The pad sites & hook ups are average to poor. Cable was good - WiFi was poor from our location.
This is a C+ park. Its one of those used-to-be KOAs which I find always to be very tight. It has some good camp sites and some not so good camp sites. It can accommodate 45' rigs, but many of the other sites are very close. However, the park is clean and well maintained. As noted in other reviews, the signage for this park is very poor and says Fireside Resort. If you are coming from Jackson and turn north on 390 off of Highway 22 when you see the Calico Restaurant, slow down because the entry way is about 2 blocks beyond that, on the right.
This great park at the northern end of Teton NP. It's on the same grounds as the visitor center and marina. There is also a restaurant, well stocked grocery store, laundromat, and gas station. I had some equipment problems, and the staff here were very helpful in working with me. This park should be a model for the NPS to create similar facilities in all the national parks.
This park appears to be a former KOA complete with an A frame office. I’ve found that these types of parks are mediocre at best. It is one of many such parks where the owners stopped maintenance and repair a long time ago. The laundry, showers and rest rooms were not clean. The rock on pad sites has pretty much gone away which leaves you with dirt. The WIFI is good sporadically but as the park fills up, the WIFI can’t handle the load. Also the park is about 50 meters off Trans Canada 1 so you get a lot of road noise. The south east sites in the park offer some great views of the valley below and periodically some big horn sheep make their way into the park. OK for over night but not much more.
This is a quaint park cut out of the woods and is as close to Glacier NP as you can get. It’s very clean and well maintained with a lot of nice amenities except for cable. However, you can pull in the major channels over the air. The Wi-Fi is very good. The office\restaurant is like going to grandmas for a meal. The one caveat that some sites are paved, some are partially paved, and some are not paved at all. If you’re not on a paved site, you’ll end up with a lot of pine needles in your rig so you may want to ask for a paved one if that’s important to you. They have a great playground for kids
This is a very large park that has great appeal for people that are here to use the Spokane River or Coeur d' Alene Lake. It also has a gravel beach and some large areas; nice for kids or family groups. Otherwise I would rate the park a C+ for the basics. You get a gravel pad that is fairly level but the majority of sites have no shade and picnic tables that have seen a lot of summers. The Wi-Fi is OK but the cable is weak. Each site has some grass but you are prohibited from putting down any kind of a carpet or the poles for your awning. The grass is watered every night. The restrooms and laundry are very clean but they are a long way from the center of the park. The park has some very long pull-throughs but they appear to be assigned randomly so if you need one ask in advance.
This park has a lot going for it, but is marginally big rig friendly. The interior roads and crescent shaped pull throughs are very narrow and tight. I stayed in site 45 which unfortunately was the only one left. The asphalt in site 45 is severely buckled: avoid it if you can.
This seems to be a great park if you want to back into your pad, not so much for the limited number of pull throughs. The pull through pads particularly in the center of the pull through section, are very narrow especially if you have slides on both sides of your coach. Plus, the hook ups are in the far back end of the pad, so you may need an extension for your sewer if your coach has a hook up in the middle or front of the coach. There is also a section of back-ins in the front of the park, where you are rear bumper to bumper with the guy in back of you. I would look at the map of the park before you book a spot. The airplane and train noise is going to be here because you’re near the airport and tracks, but based on the high occupancy of RVers that seem to be here for an extended period of time, most people seem to learn to live with it. Plus the airplane noise seems to be a function of the weather. During cloud cover you’re going to get more noise. This park is clean, well maintained, and very nicely landscaped. The park has free cable TV and Wi-Fi which work well.
I'm rating the main RV park NOT the annex. The main park is great. Level asphalt pads with convenient hook ups, great Wi-Fi and free cable TV. The rest rooms, showers, laundry were all clean and also conveniently placed. The pads are close together and there are no trees or tables. Otherwise this is a very good park. I would definitely return.
Fundamentally, this is very good park. Level concrete pads with the hookups conveniently placed. Free Wi-Fi and cable. The main office facility had a game room, laundry, and rest rooms which are all very well maintained. Very friendly & helpful staff. There are no picnic tables provided but you might be able to get one on request. There is a Fred Meyer store about half mile away which is like a super Walmart. Since the park is combined with an RV and garage style storage facilities, it lacks something in terms of aesthetics but otherwise is a great park.
As noted in previous reviews this is a great little park about 10 miles north of Grants Pass. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the facilities are in great shape. The free WiFi is excellent but there is NO cable. Great dog park if one travels with you. Be sure to visit the water falls located on park property. They're about 200 yards down hill from the main park area but its worth the walk.
I found the staff at this park to be very friendly and helpful. The park itself needs some work but overall its satisfactory. Its a good hour plus drive to the "valley floor" in Yosemite. There's also a good grocery and restaurants about 9 miles towards the park.
This is fundamentally a very good park. I found the Wi-Fi to be very good but I was very close to the HQ building. The park is in an older section of the city and the interior of the roads are tight as well as distance between rigs. If you are exiting the park to I-25 I would recommend continuing through the park exit down Pikes Ave to 31st street and then take a right through two sets of lights and then a left on Cimmaron which leads to I-25. There is a dangerous blind curve if you take and immediate right out of the park to get on BL US 24.
Colorado has a great state park system. This park is well maintained and clean but was not built to accommodate big rigs.You can squeeze one in but it isn't easy. As noted in other postings, the sites do not have water or sewer. Access to potable water is not at the dump station and is not clearly marked when you enter the park so you may want to ask about access for your loop as you pay your entrance fee.
This KOA is one of the nicer ones I’ve been to. It is very clean, well maintained and has all the amenities typically offered by a good KOA. As mentioned in a previous review the park is basically all rock – minimal trees and grass. The good news about that is that you don’t have to worry about leveling as much as rutted pads I’ve been to in other KOAs. The controllable draw back I’ve found at the park is that the Wi-Fi is very weak. Also good news\bad news, the park sits next to a major interstate on the far east side of Cheyenne and there is some train noise. You’re about 5 miles away from a major grocery store.
Chris’ is an excellent, very well maintained park with all the amenities and very congenial host. Space permitting, they take you to a number of sites in a golf cart and let you pick from those available. A couple of caveats: they don’t take credit cards and if you select a site on the perimeter of the park you will not get Wi-Fi. Also they recently acquired a campground that was contiguous to the north side of their property and those sites are very tight. Spearfish is a great little city and is centrally located for visiting Sturgis, Deadwood, the Black Hills and Devils Tower. There is a Wal-Mart about 1.5 miles from Chris’ location.
The Lake Louise campground is a very good campground but a couple of warnings. This is a large campground and many of the sites are sloped significantly from back to front. If you got a big unit arrive early so that you can change out if needed – they let me do this. Also you share a site with neighbor who pulls in the opposite direction which can make if very tight if he got there before you did and didn’t pull in correctly. If you are a light sleeper, you’re in trouble because rear of the campground is right along side a very active train track with trains that run throughout the night.
The Townsite campground at Waterton is the best of the four parks we stayed at in Canada which includes Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. The park service does a great job in maintaining this campground. The spaces between units are very good. You are within walking distance of the falls, the lake and the town of Waterton. The views of the mountains are beautiful and deer wonder through the campsite. Two caveats: nobody in town sells diesel fuel. The nearest supply is at Mountain View about ten miles outside the park. Also the receptacles for your sewer connection are right in the middle of your drive way. So as you pull in make sure to look for it and position your flexible pipe before you unhook.
This campground could be a great place if Parks Canada would maintain it. On the camping loop roads there are pot holes large enough to swallow small children. They also serve as great breeding pools for mosquitoes. Many areas of the campsites need trimming so you’re not stepping right outside your RV into foot high grass. Other than that the park is great. Elk wander through the campground, the restrooms are very clean and you’re near to the town of Jasper and the main attractions of area. Be advised that the road from Banff to Jasper has some really steep grades. Also there is no RV support of any kind in the whole Banff/Jasper area. If you think you may need it, bring it with you.
This is an average good campground. Some of the sites appear to be very nice with shade trees,level, and decent room between units. However, if you arrive on a weekend you're stuck in pretty crowded secondary areas. My neighbors sewer connection is a about a foot from my picnic table. Also its pretty much a back-in park unless you arrive when its empty and then you can drive through one site to another. The good news is that the guy who takes you to your site is a wizard in giving you directions to back in. The Wi-Fi is very good and they have a decent little store for very basic needs. Medora is basically a resort town so if you need it bring it with you.
The Havre RV Park is a small facility located on the east side of town. For some reason my GPS had it on the south side of highway 2 when in is actually on the north side of the road. It is affiliated with an attached convenience store, casino, and motel operation. You check in at the convenience store. The Wi-Fi and the pool are at the hotel and you are permitted to use them. The park is well maintained but is very tight. It’s basically and oblong loop and the “pull throughs” are along the center of the loop. If you arrive late and ask for a pull through it becomes and exercise in parallel parking. Also the electric and water are on the “wrong” side of your rig. There are some back ins that radiate off the loop but they are also pretty small. The entire loop is paved. There is a good Laundromat on site. Havre is a great place to re-provision if you’re going to or coming from Glacier National Park which is about 200 miles west of Havre. There’s a Wal-Mart on the west side of Havre and there’s a great IGA food store about ½ mile from the RV Park. If you need hardware, sporting goods, or propane there’s a place on the west side of town called Big R that’s really a good store for guy toys. The town also has as a good select of restaurants and fast food places.
Very disappointing. This is one of those KOA retreads. Like the older KOAs, it's not set up for big rigs. I have a 36' 5th wheel and can't park my truck at the site. The sites are carved into a hill side, and the picnic table is at a 45 degree angle. I'd find some other park unless you need to be in the area.
I agree with an earlier posting about this park really needing some road and pad work for what you are paying a night and to be considered a premium park. We camped here in a 36' rig and had plenty of room. There were also was a lot of large class A's around. The Wi-Fi is weak. Having said all this if you want to visit the east side of Glacier this is the best spot. Not bad but with a little work could be a lot better. If you are planning to traverse the Going-To-The Sun road in the park, check ahead because they tell us it won't be open possibly before 8/1.
This is as good as any park we've ever been at. Well managed and immaculate. Three caveats: when you check in ask for free Wi-Fi coupons otherwise its four bucks a day to Tengo. If you're a TV junkie and you use cable, the major stations have a lot of "snow." If you come in the spring\early summer bring a lot of DEET. The mosquitos in the area are fierce.
This is probably the best campground I've stayed at in a National Park. You're a very easy walk to the lake with a great view of the Tetons. There is fuel and general store very close. The store has great fresh baked cinnamon rolls in the morning. Verizon works well - AT&T no so much. There are some Wi-Fi hot spots near the store and restaurant. Caveats: bring leveling blocks many of the sites are on a grade, you are in the woods and on some sites trees are very close (couldn't lower my awning, also bring doors mats so you wont bring pine needles etc into your rig.
If your visiting Great Basin\Lehman Caves this is about the only place for a big rig. Its basically a large parking lot with hook ups. The national park is about 12 miles away. A couple of caveats: no cell service around, bring a wrench or channel locks to hook up your water, the wind can be at 40 mph in no time so don't leave your awning down. They have WI-FI but its on the weak side. Given there's nothing else in the area, no a bad park.
We used Sand Hollow as a base for visiting Zion which is approx 25 miles away. We stayed on the west side of the park away from the ATV crowd which uses the other side of the lake. The sites are all paved and have a little ramada with a picnic table and grill. The sites are level side to side but some of them have a back to front slope so bring some leveling blocks. Overall this is a great place. You're about 5 miles from a Wal-Mart and a Maverick gas station and Hurricane is a great little town with a lot of amenities. The lake has great bass fishing even from the bank. Note: the city is called Hurricane for a reason - it can get really windy.
Ruby's is the closest RV park to Bryce Canyon and has a lot of great amenities to offer. However, their pad sites are in bad condition. They are now basically dirt and needed to be leveled and re-rocked. They also hit you for a "hotel" tax so the effective rate for a pull through is $46 per night.
I made a reservation at this place 3 days in advance. When I got there the owners were gone, and I was informed by a "neighbor" (who smelled of beer) that the spot I had reserved was still occupied. The site was occupied by a very small travel trailer and probably was too short for a 36' 5th wheel to begin with. I was offered a site that had no sewer hook up and the water connection was a hose shared by at least one other guy from an outlet at least 50 feet away. Although I had specified 50 amp I got a 30 amp that was hot i.e. no circuit breaker. If you can possibly avoid this place I would.
