Host/owner very helpful with giving directions to squeeze our 39' MH into a pretty narrow spot. Very expensive camping. We looked for a place to clean our MH and were surprised that we were allowed to do this at the site itself. It saved us a lot of time with looking for a RV wash. Excellent Wi-Fi. Lot of noise by planes and helicopters from Van Nuys Airport nearby. No cable, and that should be normal for the price. We would stay here again when visiting L.A.

Direct access to beach and direct view on Morro Rock. Spacious sites but a bit narrow when a towed car has to be on the site, too. Three laundries. Restrooms and showers were pretty dirty. Probably they clean once a day only. The whole impression is a bit worn out place. Very nice approach and welcome by the staff. Wi-Fi and cable, both OK. Special fence doors to allow sunset and sunrise early in the morning or late at night. We recommend this place.

Beautiful setting on the Pinto Lake. No swimming allowed. Narrow level sites. Only 2 sites with direct lake view. Very nice staff. Gate locked from 09:00 PM - 07:00 AM. One has a key on loan. Located 20 miles from Monterey. No morning sea fog! Very quiet place. On the weekends: many nice local families come for day visits and BBQ parties. We would return.

Wow, staff is sooooo efficient! One enters with a reservation and within 2 minutes one is out again. Not one single nice word or welcome. "How are you?" Answer: "Good! What's your name?" We could make the "roundabout" at the office with our 39' MH in one turn. We got #40. We could not leave this site driving through, but had to back out; too steep and too close to opposite neighbor. One hour good Wi-Fi free, then $6 per 24 hours. Good cable TV. No privacy as neighbors were sitting in front of their rig, so almost in front of our rig. No street noise. No hot pool, but large pool. Campground was filled up.

Shady sites underneath big trees. Mostly permanent residents. Good TV cable. 50Amps. Weak Wi-Fi, but we were able to work with it. Very nice host. Next to the famous bakery Erick Schat. Opposite Carl Jr.

There is NO Wi-Fi anymore. (in 2009 a payed Wi-Fi). Lot of traffic noise, but with AC active no problem. Main Street Station offers great buffets for very low prices. Triple Star restaurant with own brewery is great. 50 amp, water and sewer. Two blocks away from Fremont Street. Express bus to the Strip around the corner. Clean showers and restrooms. Camping best value for money in Vegas.

Of course this is not an area to stay for long. We stayed one night on our way from Vegas, NV to Bishop, CA. We were pleasantly surprised by excellent Wi-Fi, swimming pool, a 103 F hot tub, good cable TV, nice host, roomy spots, extremely clean and good restrooms and showers, and a nice mountain view. What else would one need for a stop over? Expensive? I don't think so.

What more can you wish? Good free Wi-Fi, beautiful large pool, space enough for the largest rigs, hot tub (105 degree F), sauna, full hook-up and: almost ON THE STRIP! Stayed close to the entrance and pool, no traffic sounds inside the rig can be heard. We definitely would come back when in Vegas.

Very well taken care of little park. Large roomy sites, long and wide. Very clean toilets and showers. Nice little swimming pool. When AC at night not necessary: lots of noise, especially from passing and whistling trains. They blow their whistles a lot, day and night. Then, the traffic sound of the I 40 is one block away. Good Wi-Fi and free.

Senior park. Not for children. Children's fun can easily be seen as a nuisance by the rather old, semi permanent residents. Very clean everywhere. Large sites with 2 spots for the drain tube! Nice shop with RV stuff. DVD's rental for $3. Nice collection. Free TV room until 9 p.m. (however closed at 8:45 p.m.). When sun goes down, one won't hear a sound anymore!

This is a well maintained super RV Park. A pool would have been nice though. Close to downtown West Yellowstone and 1 miles from West Entrance Yellowstone NP. Very good premium spots with nice green grass. No fire ring or BBQ. Professional staff and friendly, too. This is easier than the KOA, which is 10 miles west of West Yellowstone.

Spacy sites. Excellent Wi-Fi. Clean restrooms and excellent laundry. Helpful staff. Arranged return of the Rodeo Bus, after we missed it (driver was 5 minutes earlier!) Close to downtown, but take a taxi for $6. We would come back when we visit Cody.

Driving around the office building can be a pain for some inexperienced drivers with (too) large rigs. We drove with our 39" rig easily to site #1. Very nice personnel. They accompany you to your site. Spacy pullthroughs. Beautiful warm pool and 102 degree hot tub. Curtains in shower are a bit shabby with a long hair from former guest . Shower head is much too low, suitable for people of 5 feet! In our motorhome the shower is more convenient. Laundry has reasonable prices and looks clean and efficient. The shop offers nice stuff to eat and other things. We recommend this campground.

Everything you read in former reviews is very true! The cheapest place we camped during our vacation! One addition to the former reviews: also beautiful sites on well maintained grass, both pullthrough or back-in. Indeed, no traffic noise at all. We slept like a log!

Camping had only less than 10 sites occupied during our stay. Beautiful surroundings. Spacy pullthroughs with 50amp. Reasonably level sites. No grass, some small trees. Well equipped fire rings (solid cast iron for radiation) on each site. Friendly people in the office. Very friendly host. No shady places for big rigs. The tent sites are shady and beautiful. Very good toilet building with clean toilets. They have pay showers installed, what is ridiculous for the price we pay. The cost is $2 for 6 minutes and $0.25 for each additional 30 seconds. Wi-Fi worked fine, but only the last evening of our 2 days stay. Further, the swimming pool should have been opened since last week, well it was rather empty! The laundry should be sufficient with 3 washing machines and 4 drying machines. Two washing machines were dirty on the access door. They were polluted with what looked like dog hair. The third machine was out of order. The dryers were OK. A room with game machines is available for the youngsters. For small children nice playground with various equipment.

We ordered and were confirmed a pullthrough site, but we got a back-in. Site is OK, but why so clumsy? Due to high winds, there were no campfires allowed, but the natural fire ring looks great! Beautiful trees, and only birds can be heard in the morning. Whole campground is very clean and well taken care of. Nice, helpful personnel.

Clean park, carefully maintained. Large pullthroughs with green grass patio. Helpful owner (we needed WD40; was not in the store; he lent his own). Friendly reception. Difficult to find due to lack of signs. Just at the last moment, we saw the KOA sign.

We met various interesting nice people; permanent residents on this park. Some sites on the river Animas in full shadow under big trees. Sun sites very large and are pull through. Working free Wi-Fi. 50 amp is also very welcome on hot summer days. Owners very helpful. We had some engine malfunction and we were invited in their home, using their telephone and find the proper repair shop. Aztec Ruins just half a mile up the road. Saves fuel. Price very reasonable taking all free amenities into account.

Clean park. Back-in only. Can be difficult due to parked cars from others. Good Wi-Fi. Alas, no time for a swim; looks inviting. In spite of lots of signs NOT to walk one's dog in the park, one dog owner didn't give a d**n and let his doggy walk and do it's business on the grass in the middle. This is annoying for others.

Beautiful KOA. Great swimming pool. Hot tub is more a "warm tub". Very friendly reception. Level and large sites. Well maintained and watered grass fields. The one part of the camp looks more a parking lot to me. Ask for grassy sites. One does not hear the traffic .

We arrived late in the afternoon and the place was deserted. We put $20 in the envelope and found a beautiful site. This is fantastic; only one more truck camper arrived, and one can enjoy solitude and silence. This was by far the greatest campground during our round trip. Important: big rigs like our 39' can only approach from McKinney Rd as the pass on the west side is closed for vehicles more than 12,000 lbs.

This is the nearest campground to Old Bisbee, just a short stroll down the road. 50 yards from the Queen Mine, which every visitor should experience. Very friendly female owner. At sundown there is a beautiful view at the open mine. The ramp to the campground may cause some thrills for less experienced drivers, as it is very steep.

We asked for a pull through and on arrival (office closed) we found our site taped on the office door. We got site 53, which is backup. Next morning the very friendly host explained they mixed up 35 (pull through) and 53; he offered to change sites, but we rejected his offer. He helped us out with wi-fi on our notebook. The campground has nothing to offer. No shop, no restaurant, no swimming pool or decent playground. Lots of friendly permanent residents. Beautiful plants and grassy areas. Excellent bathrooms and laundry.

This is actually a large forest of firs, so the name of the RV Park covers the situation exactly! We stayed here for 2 nights. The place was deserted and we saw 2 other overnight campers. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The main building is very, very old, but the restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. They have only a few back-in places with limited hook-up (no sewer), but dumping is easy. If you want to use satellite TV, avoid the shady part of the park. We chose this place to visit Mt.St.Helens, but the road was still closed as the bridge had been washed away some months ago. Mainly for that reason most guests had canceled their reservations. The camping is located next to the highway, but before you know, you miss the entrance and have to make a U-turn. If we ever go to this area again, we will definitely stay here.

We booked a site on the outer ring several months before we would arrive. If we wouldn't have done so, the park would have been full, even in June! We were lucky to obtain a front-in site, so we could enjoy the view of huge cruise-ships every night. This is opposite of the bay-view. The sites are small and narrow. As the front-in and back-in are situated next to each other, we almost leave our motorhome on neighbor's soil. We were lucky to get very friendly neighbors. We stayed here for 3 nights; they for 5 weeks (and they did this for many years already). The main reason for choosing this park is the location, which is by far the best location for visiting Victoria. We walked all the way. Almost next to the entrances a boardwalk starts and we made a wonderful walk to the bridge, crossed it and were in the center of Victoria; half an hour, that's all. We also tried to take the water taxi back, but we were refused in a rude manner by the captain, as my wife was wheel-chair bound and he judged it would be to difficult. He simply left us and I had to push the wheelchair up the hill again. We took the bus # 6 and arrived close to the camping site. On Sunday morning we wanted to leave at 8:00 to catch the early ferry and still had to wait another 15 minutes for checking out. (The waiter of the restaurant woke her up with his handy phone and offered us a free coffee; great hospitality of this guy!) Summary: It is the best place for visiting Victoria. The sites are small and narrow. There is no privacy at all. Make sure to reserve a site suitable for your size of rig. Only sites on outer circle of the campground are nice but not the back-in sites due to a total lack of a view.

This is a huge campground. The traffic on the highway disturbs quite a lot the ambiance. The site we had was level. Most sites we saw were level, too. If one does not make a reservation in time, only dry camping is possible; the hook-ups are limited. We were warned for elk on the campground. They could be aggressive at this time of the year. Therefore we were surprised to find out, that the showers were at the entrance only! This was at least 2 miles from our site. Walking in the dark with a small flash-light does not seem to be such a good idea with wildlife around. We recommend this campground anyway for a stay in Jasper.

Very difficult to find. Our navigation system (Tom Tom) guided us to a no-through road about 10 miles east of the park! We did some inquiry. ("There must be a trailer-park somewhere at the border, I guess." Was the help we got.) When we arrived, we were surprised by the quality of this park, so clean and well organized! A very friendly owner who offered us free chairs, left by guests, who did not take them home. It was a pity, we could not use the swimming pool, as it was painted this particular day. Further it was raining cats and dogs all day, so we stayed in the motorhome. The campground was full so a reservation is absolutely necessary for this place. The sites are rather small and there is no privacy at all.

The park is very clean and nice looking. The entrance is rather narrow and one has to drive the rig very carefully. The restrooms and showers are very old but clean. The mountain view is astonishing. We had a very much "Rambo experience" as Rambo First Blood was shot in these mountains and in the city of Hope. The camping is surrounded by busy highways and there is traffic noise on both sides. The area of Hope is beautiful. The Rambo trail in the city is very disappointing. They refer to the sites where the movie was shot, but you can hardly recognize a place, as most has been destroyed or changed. The owner and his wife are very nice and hospitable.

We loved this campground due to the ambiance. Sites are spacious with lots of shade. Separate camping areas for larger motorhomes, smaller RV's and tents. Strict rules for use of generators (and the host checks personally!). One can walk easily to the rim on the campground. During daytime the shuttle stops at the entrance of the campground for visiting Sunset and Sunrise point and the other outlooks. Staying on a campground like this is so much preferable to a RV-park. Don't forget to make the reservation in time. You do not have to drive around in circles and find out after three rounds, that every site has been reserved or occupied. We have seen these poor fellows both evenings!

This is a nice, clean park if you are traveling down Highway 101. However, there are no pull-through sites and there are a lot of permanent residents. The sites are so close together that we could not open one of our slides fully. If you have a big rig, you should request a premium site, but they are close to the highway. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The park was rather a mess. We had a reservation for a large spot, but they "advised" us another "much nicer site," as we needed only 30 Amps. The large place was a bit more expensive, but this was never an issue for us. The new site was one of many all next to each-other pull-through and shady. The large site had no shade at all. Then a big shovel was coming and going all the time with rubbish. When we asked how long this would go on they said that they had no idea; they were not KOA personnel, but doing some job. It was Saturday and we asked about Sunday. The answer: "We guess not, but we don't know." The disturbance went on till about 7 pm. On Sunday (Father's Day) we couldn't believe it, but they started working again! Anyway not too long. On Monday morning a bunch of laborers made a lot of noise at 6 am, starting pick-ups, which were parked in some parking lot on the camping ground next to our RV. Two positive issues I want to mention about this camping ground. a) Located next to the entrance of Wells Gray, which is a fabulous provincial park with lots of wild life, especially black bears! b) A more than average camping restaurant, where we enjoyed a tasteful diner in a friendly ambiance.

This is one of the few extra-ordinary places to be. This State Park is easy to find, but before you know you are driven to far and after a lot of miles you can return (our RV is 32'). They have only 7 sites with full hook-up and 6 of them were reserved. We did not know that reservation was possible and were very lucky with a beautiful site almost on top of a small hill. The pull-thru place offered a beautiful outlook on three sides on the lake. If you want to swim or go on the water with a boat or so, ask for a place on the lake side on the lower part of the camping ground. We enjoyed the sunset and sunrise with a splendid half covered sky; like an natural artwork! We can recommend this place to anyone.

In the middle of the park. Very quiet. Beautiful natural surrounding. Shuttle available to Sherman Tree, which is a few miles up south. For big rigs not accessible from the south due to steep and narrow winding road (#198), but only accessible for rigs bigger than 24 feet from the #120. When heading for Bakersfield, go back north and then drive to Bakersfield.

We were not used to stay in a National Park in a village, complete with lots of houses, cars, shops, etc, but in Canada this appears to be normal. The camping ground was huge. Though we had a reservation made 5 months ago, we were treated like any arrival with no reservation and put in line like in an "ordinary" commercial RV park. We saw lots, lots of Colombian ground squirrels and that's really fantastic to watch; no need of any TV program. There were deer in the camp with little ones and they were rather aggressive to people and even more to dogs. We were warned by other campers not to approach them. One lady was attacked the other day, walking her dog, which was considered by the deer as a threat. For a National Park rather expensive.

Beautiful, especially when weather is OK. We had lots of rain during our stay and the forest is getting very dirty and wet. Extended supermarket and gift shop. Good laundry with friendly assistance present for help. Many sites are not level. We were not able to level our motorhome. Restrooms are basic, but clean.

It is a very basic trailer park actually. There are dirt gravel roads for non-regulars. There are lot of trailers with permanent campers. Showers have a code lock, but are not well maintained, nor clean. There were empty body wash bottles and soap. There is lots of noise caused by the free-way and railway, which lasts day and night. There is a friendly and helpful host. Note: the five promised falls in the Missouri River appear to be artificial and locals call them "The damned falls..." Area of camping ground very depressive!

This is definitely one of the most attractive camping grounds we have ever seen. In the middle of Capitol Reef NP with lots of trails starting right on or within a 100 yards from the camping. The price is ridiculous and fire wood is free. We saw many wild deer on the camping close to us. The fellow campers are all very quiet and enjoy nature. The (female) ranger organizes various activities as campfire and community singing incl. lectures in the amphitheater theater. We could have stayed here longer if we had not such a tight schedule.

We had a reservation for a deluxe lot and it was really "deluxe" with a concrete floor (thus: no mud in front of the entrance when raining)and enough space to sit. We were lucky to have the first deluxe site, so free view and not the side of the rig of your neighbor. Only a few miles from the village, which is easy for shopping and close to the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park, too. The swimming pool looked fine, but was always crowded with youth, that is obvious during the season. This is an excellent family camping ground. No lamentation about the price; just pay it and forget.

This a full-hook-up parking lot. Close to North Las Vegas with a lot of homeless people camping along the road. Still a safe feeling due to numerous armed guards, who patrol day and night on the camping. Traffic noise acceptable as the place is in town. Two blocks from Fremont Street. The food in the Hotel is absolutely great and cheap. We enjoyed the Champagne Brunch for $ 11.50 each. Price for camping is a bargain compared to Circus Circus! We stayed for two nights.

The park is wonderful. Big family gatherings with loud television all day and shouting to each-other. They seem to "own" the place. However silence after 10 p.m. The regulations are quite clear, but one cannot complain anywhere as everything was closed even during this busy season. We were lucky to had a reserved site rather far from the crowd, who prefer the sites on the lake side. We had enough shadow. We would not stay here again due to the nuisance of other campers, who react rather rude when I made a remark about their TV.

It is next to the freeway LA-Las Vegas. A noisy place due to traffic. Good wifi. There is a very small pool with no shady areas. Rather narrow sites, especially when using slide-out and awning. When windy, there is lots of dust everywhere, which is logical in the middle of the desert.

Quiet place in natural surrounding. Many trees and shadow, but sunshine in the morning, too. Good access for big rigs.
