This park served me well as a one-night stopover. Very convenient to the Kansas Turnpike. Site was easy to maneuver into and hook-ups worked well. Wi-Fi was better than I typically experience at KOA. Restrooms were spotless. I arrived after the office closed, but because I had called ahead all the paperwork and directions to my site were available at "self" check-in. Only downside for me was train noise. I would definitely stay here again.

This park made a nice, convenient one-night stopover as I was traveling up I-35. Park grounds are tidy and my site was easy to get in and out of pulling a toad. Site had a bit of a downhill run to it, but did not create a leveling issue. Staff was very friendly. Restroom looked a bit tired and had only one toilet in the men's area. Would definitely consider this park again.

Used this park as a 1-night stopover. Got a discount for paying cash. Pull-through site was easy-in, easy-out, with toad. Staff was very friendly. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Weak WiFi kept this park from scoring a "10" for me. Everything else, from the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff to the cleanliness of the restrooms, was wonderful. The setting is great-- good views of the mountains. My site was level and easy to maneuver into. Hookups were well-placed and worked well. Park was generally quiet. Would definitely stay here again while in the Santa Fe area.

The nicest RV park in the Big Bend area. Large pull-thru sites with plenty of space between. Driveway and sites are all paved. Staff is very friendly. Musical performances 3 nights a week by the Whitfords added to the enjoyment of my stay. The RV park manager even showed up one evening after music with homemade ice cream for everyone. The only downside for me was the WiFi, which often slowed to a crawl in the evening.

My visit to this park was for a one-night stopover. Staff was very friendly. At check-in I was given instructions for WiFi, but it would not work from my site. I was able to receive a signal at the office, but was then told that it probably would not reach my site, which was on the perimeter of the park. Had I known that at check-in, I would have asked for a closer site. Also, water pressure seemed very low. Because of these issues, I would probably not stay here again for any length of time.

Rate reflects daily rate with Good Sam discount. Facility-wise, this is easily the nicest RV park in the area. All roads and sites are paved, which cuts down on the dust. My pull-thru site was long enough for my motorhome and tow vehicle and was level. A concrete "patio" with a picnic table was included. Utilities were well-placed and worked well, including the WiFi. Restrooms and showers were spotless. Also on-site are a nice community room and outdoor swimming pool. Staff was very friendly. I plan to return in the winter for a longer stay.

Rate reflects a special offer that allowed me to get 3 nights for the price of 2 for a premium back-in space. I ended up here when Mustang Island SP wall full for part of my stay. I was not disappointed at all. All the roads and pads are concrete. My site also had a nice concrete patio. Hook-ups were well-placed, the WiFi worked great and the restrooms were spotless. There is a nice boardwalk to the beach, as well as other amenities. The entire park exudes a very friendly atmosphere. As I frequent the Port Aransas area, this park may be my new "go-to" location

This "free" park worked out great for me as a 1-night stopover. Park is right off the one of the main thoroughfares, so easy to find and convenient. Site was level with water and 30 amp electric. Perhaps they have 50 amp in other sites, but I did not check. This a very nice (and generous) offering from a friendly West Texas town. Will definitely stop here again if in the area.

Although just a quick overnight stay, this was once of my best RV park experiences. I was very impressed with the facilities: large, level pull-through space, exquisite grounds, WiFi that actually worked and a very helpful and friendly staff. The new owner has turned what was a good park on my previous visit, into a great one.

Spent a total of 5 nights at this large, well-run campground. Three nights were dry-camping and two nights were full-hookup. Both areas were fine with me. Dry-camping was back-in site, which required disconnecting toad, which was no problem, since I was using toad to explore the park. Full hook-up site was a pull-through. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would camp there again.

I spent 7 nights at this RV park and used it as a base while exploring Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks. Staff was friendly and helpful, site was level and hook-ups worked fine. This is a busy park. Only negatives for me were traffic noise in the park itself and occasional Wi-Fi outages. Location makes it handy for grocery shopping, restaurants, etc. Would definitely consider staying here again.

This campground scored well with me because it had all the basics I look for-- reliable Wi-Fi, level site, good hookups and an unobstructed sky for satellite reception. Staff was friendly, restrooms were very clean an of adequate size for the park. A bonus was the cable TV service (more channels than I've ever encountered at an RV park.) Only negative was noise from the main highway into Moab. Would definitely stay here again.

Other than the narrow, hard to get into, sites, this is a great RV park. Spotless restrooms, level sites and good WiFi make this a great place to stop overnight. Owner was very friendly. Would definitely consider staying here again

Very nice KOA. Staff was very helpful and my site worked well for my stay. Only issue I had was with the Wi-Fi, which was spotty at best. Staff tried resetting the router for my area, which worked for about a half hour. I believe RV parks that advertise Wi-Fi should have reasonably capable systems. Unfortunately, my experience at KOA's all over this country has been that their Wi-Fi is the weak link.

Without question, the worst campground experience I've ever had. Pull-through site I was originally assigned was occupied so I ended up in a back-up site that was difficult to get into. Park is all mud-- no gravel or asphalt in sight. Electric turned out to be only 15 amp for a DP motor home. I was told by the owner/host (who had obviously been drinking), "you'll get by on 15 amps. I got out of there as soon as it was light enough to get out of there.

I stayed at this campground for 2 nights. Owners were very friendly and helpful. My site was level and easy to get in an out of. I was also able to receive satellite TV from my dome. The only thing that would make this campground better would be to have the Wi-Fi work from the campsite. I really enjoyed my stay.

Rate reflects a pull-thru water/30 amp site in the "park" area. I had stayed here in 2007, and everything on this trip was pretty much as I remembered it. Sites were easy to get into, site was level, utilities worked fine and Wi-Fi was acceptable. Would probably stay here again.

The rate shown was for a pull-thru 30amp/water site. I liked almost everything about this park. The staff was friendly, check-in was prompt and my site was reasonably level and accommodated my motorhome and toad. The biggest negative was the Wi-Fi-- very slow, in fact, much slower than my AT&T cell service for data. I believe that RV parks that advertise Wi-Fi should have service that is reasonably fast. Slow Wi-Fi is like no Wi-Fi at all.

I pulled into this RV park late in the day in order to avoid an approaching storm. It is conveniently located just off I35W. While it did have nice long, level concrete pull-through sites, the lack of WiFi was a big disappointment for me. There are also a lot of long-term residents in the park, and some of their sites could definitely be a little neater. Lack of restrooms and showers may be a factor to some. I would only likely stop here again if there were no other options.

Beautiful, well-kept park. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi worked very well. Only drawback for some might be the lack of restrooms and showers, but it was not a problem for me. I would definitely consider staying here again.

This park would have gotten a higher rating from me except for two issues. One was the WiFi, which was about as slow as I've ever encountered. Given the premium rate this park charges compared with others in the area, I would have expected WiFi to on par with them. It was not. Placement of the dumpster was at the rear of the park, while my site was near the front. This made for a very long hike just to get rid of my trash, as this is a relative large park. Seems to me that the dumpster could be placed closer to the middle of the park. Staff was very friendly, but not too familiar with the area. The nice lady who checked me in had only been there for a few days. As a frequent visitor to the Alpine area, I guess my expectations were raised by all the glowing reviews for this park. My experience, was no better than I have experienced at other parks in the area that have a lower rate.

I stayed here for 5 nights following a recommendation from fellow camper. I was not disappointed at all. The grounds are beautiful. The sites are large, the Wi-Fi worked fine and the park had very friendly guests, who obviously have been coming here for years. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. This is definitely my kind of RV park. I'll definitely return for a longer stay.

This is a very nice park, located less than a mile off the Kansas Turnpike. The staff was very friendly and the restrooms were absolutely spotless. WiFi worked well. Only "negative" for me was the location of the sewer hook-up in the site I was assigned. There is a big WalMart about 1/4 mile away.

This park was conveniently located to I35 for a 1-night stopover. The road into the park was very dusty. My site was long and wide, and it had 50 amp service. The WiFi was very slow. The overall appearance of the place is a bit shabby, but the staff was friendly. I would not want to stay here long, but given the reasonable rate, I considered it a fair value.

I spent two nights at this park. Park host was very friendly and allowed me to select a site and get hooked up before registration. Pull-through site was long enough for my motorhome and toad, and it was easy to get in and out of. Hook-ups were well-placed and worked fine. Plenty of open sky for my satellite dome. Wi-Fi was fast, but was not secured with a password. Park accepts cash and personal checks, but no credit cards. Have stayed here before and would stay again.

I stayed one night at this campground. The staff was very friendly. I was given one of the long pull-through sites in the newer area of the park. The hook-ups seem to be positioned for trailers, as they were near the rear of the site. Because I had a motorhome and toad, I ended up disconnecting, so I could position the motorhome closer to the hook-ups. It was not a problem for me, as I needed to run an errand in the toad. But for those wanting to keep the toad attached, it might be an issue. Lack of tall trees allowed my satellite TV to work just fine. Only other issue was the Wi-Fi, which, at times, was so slow, it was unusable.

I stayed here as a one-night stopover. My pull-through site was level and easy to get in and out of. Staff was friendly and restrooms were exceptionally clean. i would have rated the park a 10, except for issues getting a good connection on the Wi-Fi, which required several calls to Tengo Internet. I finally got connected and received a good signal. I would definitely consider staying here again.

When I first pulled into this park and realized after only being a few feet into the driveway and was going to have to unhook my toad before proceeding, I thought I had made a big mistake coming here. However, once I got situated in a spacious site at the bottom of the hill and spent some time getting acquainted with the owners, I was glad I was there. This park has been in the same family for over 60 years. The information about the local area provided me made my visit to this region of Massachusetts a real delight. The only real drawback (other than initially getting into my site) were the trees that blocked my satellite reception. However, Wi-Fi worked well. Given the limited choice of campgrounds in this area, I would definitely consider staying here again.

This park worked great for me while visiting Maine. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My long pull-through site was located at the rear of the park, where there is plenty of space and no trees to block my satellite dome. The location made day-trips to Bar Harbor and even up to Campobello Island very convenient. The daily rate made it a good value. Laundry facilities were great. The only improvement I might suggest is a second restroom in the back area, as the only restroom is located quite a ways from there. I would definitely stay here again

This park worked fine for me as a one-night stopover. Large, level, gravel sites. Park was largely empty, so was very quiet. Wi-Fi worked fine. For a park that caters to over-55 campers, I was amused to find so many reminder signs everywhere, as if the park was actually catering to small children. Would stop here again if in the area.

I stayed here 3 nights while exploring the Monterey peninsula. The paved site accommodated my motorhome and toad just fine. Yes, the sites are a bit narrow, but as I only have one slide, it was not a problem for me. Staff was very friendly and laundry was reasonably priced and worked well. My only complaint was the Wi-Fi, which was not as fast as some other parks. I would definitely consider staying here again.

Rate reflects water/electric pull-through site. As a solo RVer this park had things I didn't need/desire (pool, petting zoo, etc.) and the things I really wanted (decent WiFi and ability to use my satellite dome (too many trees.) Since I could not use my satellite, I opted for the included cable, but picture was very fuzzy on all channels. The staff tried to be accommodating, but the park was so busy, they had a hard time keeping up. Maybe this is a good "destination" park for families with kids, but for me it was not the quiet camping I enjoy. Given the price, I think I would avoid this park in the future. It failed to deliver on what is important to me.

I'm glad I did not read the recent reviews of this park, because I would probably not have stopped. For me, this park worked great as a one-night stopover. It was located close to I-5 and easy to find. I arrived after the office closed, but they had a very thorough and easy-to-understand check-in process. The pull-through site I selected was just around the corner from the office and accommodated my RV perfectly. The site was level and the Wi-Fi worked just fine. The only issue was the sewer connection, which was too far to easily hook up. I remedied that problem by using the dump station as I was leaving. I would definitely stop here again if I was in the area.

Rate reflects water/electric pull-thru site with KOA discount. I stayed here one night while touring Olympic National Park. This is definitely the worst KOAs I've ever been to. Grass/dirt sites, inadequate restroom capacity for the size of the park, and overall shabby appearance made me glad I was only there as a stopover. The one saving grace was the excellent Wi-Fi-- fast and reliable. I would probably not stay here again.

I stayed at this park for 6 nights while visiting friends in the Tacoma area and took a day trip to Mount Rainier NP. I was surprised when I made my reservation that they do not take credit cards-- only cash or check. The initial site they put me in had trees blocking my satellite dome. Fortunately, they had another space in a more "open" section on the park. Staff was very friendly. Wi-Fi worked OK. Restrooms and laundry were clean. On their website they seem to be concerned about the appearance of visitor's RVs and asked that they be no older than 15 years. I was surprised when I arrived with the number f considerably older RVs. It did not bother me. Apparently, they aren't as fussy as their website would indicate. I would consider staying here again.

I stayed here one night while traveling. I did not have a reservation, and the site I got was 30 amp only. Not sure if they have 50 amp, but as it was not that hot. I got by with 30 amp. The restrooms were spotless. The staff was very friendly. My pull-through site allowed me to keep my toad connected, which was very convenient. My only complaint was the slow Wi-Fi. Not sure if this was a provider problem, as Monticello is a small town. I would definitely consider this as a future stopover.

Staff was very friendly and helpful about the area. Site was level and easy to get in and out of. My only issue during my stay was with the laundry, as the washer I chose worked very slowly. I was told the next morning they were having problems with that washer. It would have been nice to know ahead of time with a sign on that washer. Other than that one issue, I enjoyed my stay.

I stopped here as a one-night stopover while touring Colorado. This is quite a facility, with one area designated a "resort" and the other an RV park. My pull-through site was huge for my rig. I arrived after the office had closed, but the camp host was very helpful in directing me to a vacant site. Wi-Fi initially did not work, but Ethernet was available for my laptop until Wi-Fi worked again. This park was a little "over-the-top" for me in terms of its facilities, but was OK for one night. Given the pristine surroundings, the restrooms were not as "spotless" as I might have expected. Nevertheless, I would consider staying here again.

I stayed at this campground as a one-night stopover while traveling through Colorado. The campground hosts were both friendly and helpful. The site was easy to get in and out of and the electrical hook-up worked fine. The vault toilets were very clean. There are no showers at this campground. I would have stayed longer and explored the hiking trails had it not been for the rainy weather. This is a very scenic and quiet park. I would definitely consider camping here again,

I stayed here two nights while exploring the Enchanted Circle area of New Mexico. The owners were very friendly and provided a lot of helpful information about the area. My campsite was level and easy to get in and out of. The bathroom was absolutely spotless. The Wi-Fi was not only exceptionally fast, but very secure. The owners set up your computer initially, and you're good to go for your stay. The setting is very scenic and park is very quiet. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to the area.

This was an overnight stopover for me. I arrived after the office closed, but the after hours sign-in process was very clear. I chose one of their "value full hook-up" spots, which was shorter than others, but not a problem for my rig. The park was not very busy, so it was quiet. My space was easy to find and get into. My only complaint was the wi-fi, which seemed much slower than at other KOAs I've stayed at recently. As I was heading south, the fact that this park was on the south side of Louisville meant I did not have to cope with traffic when I left the next morning. I would consider staying here again

I stopped here as an overnight stop. On the afternoon I arrived it was 107 degrees, but the friendly staff made sure I had a shady spot, as the park was almost empty. Just before sundown I toured the main part of the old fort, which was interesting. I was disappointed that there was no Wi-Fi, as so many Texas State Parks now offer it, I guess I considered it a given. I was able to pull in a couple of TV channels over the air. As others have reported it is a beautiful and quiet park, I would consider staying there again. Hopefully, at a cooler time of the year.

I spent two nights here while in the Big Bend area. The sites are large and easy to get in and out of. The WIFI worked great and the restrooms/showers were exceptionally nice and clean.

As a frequent Big Bend National Park visitor, I have stayed here on many occasions over the past 4-5 years. This year I was pleasantly surprised by the new WiFi booster that allows me to use my computer in my travel trailer. It is probably the best WiFi performance I've had at any RV park. And, considering that you can't get a cell phone signal here, it's pretty impressive! You won't meet any nicer people anywhere (campers and staff) than you will meet at this park. I have developed some close friendships over the years and now consider this place like a second home. One camper compared their experience here to being at summer camp. No, it's not the fanciest place, but it is honest and fun. As many of us often remark, people either "get it" or they don't. The ones that do are rewarded with an incredible camping experience.

I've stayed at this campground on several occasions. It is centrally located to Mustang Island/North Padre Island area. As others have mentioned, it is basically a large parking area with water and electric hookups. It is easy to access sites. Staff is very friendly and the campground is reasonably quiet. While no cable TV is available, I was able to receive over-the-air broadcasts from several local stations. WiFi worked better this trip than in the past and AT&T cell signal was typical for AT&T. Showers are a bit "tired," but this is a beach park. Restrooms were very clean. I would definitely stay here again.

I pulled into this park late in the evening for an overnight stay after seeing a sign on I-35W. While there was no one at the office (it was after 11 PM) a packet was available instructing me which site was available, a registration form and payment envelope which made for an easy check-in. As others have indicated this park has no restrooms or showers. I found out the next morning that it was originally set up as a mobile home park and is gradually evolving into an RV park as well. My space was roomy and easy to back into. Hookups worked fine. This park is very quiet and has nice landscaping. The brochure indicated that WiFi was available near the office, but I did not try to use it. I would definitely consider staying here again.

This campground had a very friendly staff and the restrooms were spotless. My campsite was technically a "pull through," but was extremely tight to get in and out of, even for my 21' travel trailer.

This campground sits right on the Llano River and features spacious sites much more spread out than one typically finds at KOA. Large trees scattered throughout the park provide ample shade.

Even though this campground is basically a parking lot, the scenery and easy access to many of the hiking trails make this a nice place to camp. Sites are level and easy to get in and out of. Camp host was very pleasant. Wi-Fi is available at the visitor's center, about a half mile away, and my AT&T cell phone worked. Restrooms with running water (but no showers) are close by. A threaded water spigot is available to fill your fresh water tank, but no dump station. Come prepared, as the closest gas, ice, and groceries are in Whites City, NM, about 30 miles up the highway. I have camped here several times before and will definitely return.

This park is typical of the high general quality of Texas State Park campgrounds. It made a nice overnight stop coming home from Big Bend National Park, although I have toured this park on a previous trip. Sites are spread out and quiet.

The rate shown reflects a daily rate for less than 1 week. Pay this rate for 6 nights and receive the 7th night for free. I spent 15 nights at this wonderful campground near the northern entrance to Big Bend National Park, 6 miles east of US 385 on RR 2627. What this park lacks in frills it more than makes up for in the exceptional personalities of the owners, staff and campers who come here from all over the country year after year to enjoy the beauty of the area and the company of each other. Nightly live music, singing, regular visits from interesting "locals," the February trail ride, complete with chuck wagon meals and a dance, not to mention Nan's famous burritos, all add up to an incredibly unique experience.
