I agree with most of what the previous reviewer had to say. The place has a generally trashy look. There's pet feces everywhere. The RV sites must have been an afterthought. Some of them are just in a row on a strip of asphalt. Some are crammed in between what used to be trees. We got the later. They're all different widths and ours was so narrow our slides were into the bushes on both sides. We went back and requested a different site as many were vacant. The staff refused to even try to accommodate us. What you get is what you get! We spent 8 days without being able to open basement doors. The streets and turns are very tight, but we did manage with our 40 footer; the wife had to "spot" even on the turns. Xanterra really is gouging you on prices. There should be some kind of NPS oversight on these people. An avocado was $4. I saw unleaded gas from $5.42 to $5.98. I had to purchase this outrageous gas twice. Death Valley is a huge park and there's lots of driving to see everything. When the wind blows really hard (only 1 night for us) the power goes on and off repeatedly. We called the office and were told, yeah the wind's blowing and it does that. We finally shut the breaker off and went to bed. We were NOT charged an extra fee for use of the pool and the WiFi. We used both and paid nothing additional. I would not come back here again.

This park could have been a 10 except for a couple of issues. The web site says sites are $28 a night plus tax, but when you check in, the lady in the office charges you $30 a night plus tax. The other issue is that the whole park is on a gentle slope. It's not obvious when you look, but everyone has to use blocks on one side. I personally don't like having to put out blocks and pick them up. That aside, this is a lovely park! It's very clean and well maintained. The WiFi is strong and fast. The restrooms are very clean. The lady in the office is very nice and helpful with things to see and do. The laundry room is clean. The pool looks nice, but it's not warm enough to swim. The pull-through sites are 65 feet long and 35 feet wide, great to have plenty of room. Satellite and Verizon both work fine.

We took this "resort" up on their offer of 4 free week nights in exchange for their sales pitch. This is a very old, tight park. We were shocked that they put us in such a short, narrow, 30 amp site when they were trying to "impress" us. Actually only some, not many, sites have 50 amp. We're in a "pull-through," but it's only long enough for the coach. Only a few waterfront sites and members get those. Our slides are less than a foot from the grill on one side and about a foot from the neighbor's picnic table on the other side. Wi-Fi is only at the clubhouse. They have pool tables and dart boards, but the equipment is all locked up and no one around. The streets and sites are mostly pea-gravel that tracks into the RV. Restrooms are old, but fairly clean. The bar serves "bar food" at very reasonable prices. If you're not into river and water activities, I have no idea why you'd come here. The salesman that gave us our pitch was extraordinarily rude. We would never come back here.

We were really impressed with this park. The site are spacious, level, concrete. The utilities work good. A pool would be nice. There's a walking track all the way around the park. The WiFi was fair. The park is well cared for and very attractive. The commissary and BX are close enough. Don't miss the ticket and tour office, we got a couple of really good military specials there.

I had a really hard time deciding between 9 and 10. This is a terrific park! It's attractive and well-maintained. They have an RV Wash on the property. Eight to ten washers and dryers, and yes, they are FREE. The location is terrific, less than half an hour from Disney. A pool would be a nice touch; that would have clinched the 10 for me. The station has it's own small harbor and beach front which you can go down to when they don't have a ship anchored. You can't swim, but we got our feet wet. A few hundred yards on the other side of the fence, we were able to swim. Lots of rules, just read them all, they're lengthy, but easy enough to comply with. A little more expensive than we're used to in the midwest, but overall a really great experience.

This is a very attractive little park. We were concerned about picking a small park next to a motel, but as soon as we saw it, we knew it was a great choice. Some of the sites are really long, gravel pull throughs with concrete patios. We got one of these. There's plenty of space between the sites, too. The bathrooms are clean. Couldn't get the WiFi to work. We spent 3 nights at the nightly rate, #32 and a week at a weekly rate with a discount that turned out to be $22 a night. The park is very well cared for and looks very nice. All the utilities worked fine. We were able to see Zion, Bryce, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon from here. We would definitely stay here again!

Hookups would make this a perfect 10! We came in a terrible rain storm and were able to get our choice of several sites. They're fairly level and the big rig sites are in Loop C, next to the amphitheater and the orchards. Apples and pears were ready and you can eat as much as you want while in the orchard, for free. This park is like an oasis in the desert, it's so pretty. We wound up staying 6 days, twice as long as we planned. We would have stayed longer if it wasn't so isolated. In addition to no hookups, there's no cell phone, internet, or TV either. Most of the sites, like ours, are luxuriously covered with trees, so no satellite as well. We did a lot of hiking and sitting out enjoying the beauty. Overall, a really great experience.

Lots of choices in Moab. All the others are more expensive. This is a great no-frills campground. It's taken care of and the bathrooms are clean. The sites are level, gravel. The utilities all worked fine. If you're just looking for a place to sleep without a lot of bells and whistles, this is it. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

This is not your typical KOA! We try to stay away from KOAs when we can. This one, on the other hand, was fantastic. The setting is gorgeous. Yes, it was interesting getting to the location on the top of a mountain, but the views are excellent and it's only 8 miles off the interstate. They have long, level, concrete pull-throughs, which we picked for an overnight stay. They have some head-ins overlooking the valley which I would love to come back and spend a week in. They have 2 hot tubs, a rec area, and serve pizza and wings at your site! It just doesn't get any better than this. I would love to come back here again and stay longer!

This is what I've come to expect from KOA. We try not to stay at a KOA if we don't have to. This time, we picked the KOA because it had a pool. So here goes. The good, the sites are well spaced and large enough for a coach with slides on both sides towing a car. The sites are level, too. They have a pool (I guess). The bad, well that goes on and on. The sites are just dirt, gravel would not be accurate; just dirt. The pool was never open; guess they had thunder showers earlier that afternoon, and the owner never really wanted to open it. It usually turns out poorly for us when we pick a park for a pool. Lots of seasonal or long-termers. We were parked facing a whole row of them. Apparently, pet rules don't apply to these people. Five sites had at least four dogs roaming loose. My site was full of pet feces. Two of them approached me while I was hooking up utilities. I tried to shoe them away; the owner says "Oh, they're friendly." I don't care; why are they in my site? I saw one of the dogs run five sites down and jump a dog on a leash that someone was trying to walk. She had to pick her dog up and carry it home! We asked for a 50 amp site. The power through our TRC Voltage Protector cut off several times before we had been parked for an hour. I asked the people across the street if they had electrical problems. They said no, but they were using 30 amps. They told me the coaches down from me that were using 50 amps kept tripping their breakers. The owner/manager? apparently never answers the phone. We tried calling twice before we got here and left a message, too. Nothing. I tried calling twice after we got here and no answer, either. I walked over to the office and he was just sitting there. Overall, I guess all the owner/manager? wants to do is sit in the office and take people's money. This place was outrageously priced at $49 a night for a dirt spot full of feces in the middle of nowhere. I would never stay here again!

I think big-rig access was an error in previous reviews. The campground website says "large, level pull-throughs" and "can accomodate the largest made RV's." Neither of these is true. We were in a large coach with slides on both sides towing a car. I told the owner this when I made the reservation. When we got in at 4pm, the office was closed. A note on the door left instructions for me to unhook my toad right there in the entryway and proceed to my site. Without the car, the coach can pull through the very small site. This is NOT my definition of a pull-through! As for large sites that can accomodate the largest made RV, our site is barely long enough for the 40 foot coach. We were instructed to park the dinghy crossways in the front; about half of it is out in the road. This is common at many sites making the road difficult to navigate. Finally, this "large" site is so narrow that I can't open the basements on one side. Our slide is less than 3 inches from the power post and the water faucet. The park is very small and tight maneuvering. We had to get our "neighbor" to move their truck to get out of the site; glad they were up! There are 2 (separate) rooms with a shower and toilet. They were fairly clean. There is one washer/dryer in one of the bathrooms. No other facilities here. Like other reviewers, we chose Taps for the location. I think Good Sam's rating of 6/9.5/9 is pretty far off track. I could not get the Wi-Fi to work, but Verizon worked fine. Biltmore was a blast! We may come back to Asheville, but we would never stay here again.

This place is a mud hole when in rains! When the sun's out and it drys up some, it's fairly attractive. They have 16 sites. A "few" homesteaders is probably quite an understatement. Also, the fact that it's mostly pull-throughs with a few back-ins is reversed, in my opinion. We came for 4 nights with a reservation. All the nice sites (and pull-throughs) were taken by long-term campers (all but one locals). It had been raining for days and we were stuck with the last back-in that you could walk from the dinghy to the RV. There were 2 other sites left when we parked. The other 13 were mostly locals and looked like they had "set up for the summer." Whatever anyone says about a 14-day limit it is obviously not enforced. Maybe that means you can come in every 14 days and pay for the next 14 days. One other RV showed up while we were there and took a back-in that was under water when it was raining. Since that was a 42 to 45 foot coach, he wouldn't have had a place to park if we had taken that one. No showers, laundry, WiFi, etc; bare bones camping. Yes, they have cable, and that's great because the trees block satellite; but, I only found 37 channels. With public access and duplicates; maybe 10 to 15. Lest this sound completely negative, I was glad to have a place with full-hookups in Savannah for $22 a night. The electric was good, the water had good pressure, and our Verizon phones and MiFi worked great. I enjoy staying on-post, inside the gate and security checks. I would come here again. Finally, I'm not sure how they manage reservations. We made one, but they've been closed the whole time we've been here. If a "drop in" takes the last site; what about your reservation? I don't know how that works. There's only one site left now and they're still closed. What if a drop in takes it and someone had a reservation? An on-site host would be nice.

Very large, attractive campground. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We came for one night and wound up spending three. No tables or fire rings at the sites. They are in the common areas. As mentioned by others, you pick your own site. No trouble circling the grounds in our 40 foot motorhome with the car still in tow. Only about 5 or 6 pull-throughs left when we picked; only a few of those were fairly level. Lots of long-term people; no one around us came or left while we were here. However, from what I could see, all sites were very well kept and maintained. I have no idea how they managed to keep this large area mowed with all the rain, but they did! I think they came by our site twice in 3 days; very helpful with wet grass. Restrooms and shower(s) are behind the office. Men's is 2 toilets and 1 shower, but clean and well attended (and air conditioned). WiFi worked most of the time. Verizon worked fine. Not much on site except a well-cared for campground. We enjoyed "Mayberr" and went hiking at "Mount Pilot." We would definitely stay here again.

We did not happen to go into the restrooms so we can't verify what the previous reviewer wrote about them. Overall, the park was very attractive and everything we expected. We got 50 amp electric and used the dump and fill, on the way in. It was pretty full Friday and Saturday with lots of families. Thursday and Sunday were pretty quiet. Everything was green and the grass had been mowed. It was tight, but workable manuevering our 40 motorhome in the park. We would come here again.

This park may have been upgraded since the last review. When we got there, the area had just been mowed and trimmed; it looks very nice. The forty asphalt pads looked brand new to us. They're 45 feet long, but only about 8 or 9 feet wide. The bathhouse looks new, as well. The floor is concrete, but aside from that it's large and very well kept. The Wi-Fi worked well. The $29 rate reflects the discount with a military ID. No matches were going on, so there were only 2 to 4 rigs there the whole four days we were there. They do have a lot of ants; take some yard spray. We would definitely stay here again.

Squaw Creek has an "old" area and a "new" area. The new area has concrete pads and full hookups. You can only stay here 1 night at a time without a reservation; you could have to move any day. With a reservation, you pay $30 night. In the old area, you get mature trees with water and electric. We chose these at $20 a night. The sites in the back of the loop are not really walking distance to the bathhouse. The bathhouse is fairly new and very clean. We've been here 3 times and would come again.

I don't know if I'd call this "Indy's Premier RV Campground" like their website says. The photos are actual shots, but always from an angle or way to make it look the best. There are lots of long-term units. Some were unattended the 3 days we were here. The grounds are well manicured and the bathrooms are spotless. The WiFi was "broken," of course. Heard that one before! The lady in the office was friendly and helpful. The rest of the staff was pretty indifferent; not rude, but not at all friendly. I guess the rules for the long-term residents are different than for short termers. We observed long-term residents with vehicles that wouldn't fit in their sites, just parking them half in the grass. On the other hand, we took our 3 year old down to the common fire pit area, had planned to park in the grass next to the pit for a couple of hours. We were told to move our car before we could even unload and start the fire! I haven't seen the other parks in Indy, so I can't compare. We would probably go back.

This would be a nice place to camp, when no events were scheduled. If you're flexible, check the event schedule on their website. Yes, they have full hookup, 50 amp sites; a few even have concrete pads. BUT, no, you're not going to get one of these if anything is going on. An RV group was having a rally when we got here. We were relegated to the "public camping" area. This is an unlevel grass field with water and 30 amp electric. It was still a pleasent stay. We would return if we could schedule it when a nicer site was available.

Mixed reaction to this park. Grounds are attractive and well maintained. The one staff memeber we met was friendly and helpful. The pool looked clean and inviting, but we didn't go in. On the other hand, the restrooms and showers were gross; things crawling up and down the walls in the showers, etc. Obviously, indoor cleaning is not a high priority. Overall, this park was a bust for us. We came for 2 nights; coming from a dry camp and headed to a dry camp. We expected to bathe and do laundry. The water was off at our site from early the first night to mid afternoon the next day. Next, the power went off at least 6 times from the afternoon we arrived to the morning we left. They were very short outages, but annoying. All the clocks have to be reset and the satellite goes through it's lock on and initialization again (ruining shows recording). Lots of long term residents, some with not too attractive looking sites, but it looks like transients are in a separate area. The short term area looked new and featured plenty of gravel on the roads and sites, but very tiny trees. We will probably not come back here.

We moved here on Sunday of the Memorial Day Weekend. Even though they don't take reservations, there were several nice sites to choose from. The restrooms are old and small, but kept clean. Most of the park is old, but has a lot of historical interest. Family enjoyed the skating rink. No TV, but Verizon worked marginally. The sites are all grass side by side and fairly close together. Great, I suppose, if you're with someone. We were able to park on the end and had plenty of room. Enjoyed touring all the old buildings and hiking the 1/2 mile trail. Very nice, quiet campground. Would definitely come here again.

What a WRETCHED place to go! Their website doesn't really give you a clear idea of what to expect. We reserved 2 sites to spend Memorial Day Weekend with family. The $25 rate shown is $18 for the site $5 a day entry fee and $2.30 for the reservation. While it's true they have 50 amp sites, I think their are only 6 and only 3 of those are reserve-able. The sites are horribly out of level. We spent over an hour in the first site using every board we had and couldn't get level. After another 45 minutes in the other site using every board we had, we were close to level. As we found out later, apparently not close enough. Things should have settled down from here, right? Not likely. The power was very low (99 to 100 volts) at the post. It was completely off for a while Saturday afternoon. An attendant called someone who spoke very briefly we me about the low voltage. He was indifferent to my problem and left. The TRC surge/voltage protector won't engage at that low a voltage, so I couldn't get power to the coach. It was HOT both Saturday and Sunday. By Sunday all of us were fed up with the heat and power issues. The fridge was up to almost 50 degrees because we couldn't get level enough. The constant power issues finally broke the TRC surge/voltage protector and there was no way I would connect my coach to their extremely poor power. It's so sad that the state would subject so many RV's to low power. How much damage have they caused? We all left! SAVE YOUR A/C's and ELECTRONICS! STAY AWAY FROM INDIAN CAVE! We will never go here again.

We've been here several times, and this one was not a disappointment. Weston Bend is always clean and well-kept. Even though near capacity for the weekend, it was quiet and enjoyable. The paved trail is great when the others are too wet to hike. The host was friendly and seemed to stay on top of everything. Our site (8) was level, but lacked afternoon shade. We enjoyed touring nearby Weston with friends. We will definitely come back!

We were looking for a stop with a pool. We checked in 2 different cities and the other one has never had any trouble with their pool. One campground told us there was a part on order and it would be fixed in a few days. We're pretty sure it was this one. When we got there, the pool had been broke for a long time and the owners kind of looked at each other when I asked about it. The price is for a Water/Electric site. Like most KOA's, it's simply overpriced. The owners were not rude, but not very friendly, either. We got no escort to our site. Their extended family was using one of the common areas and they were less than friendly. They kept giving us irritated looks and locking the door behind us. They had no problem opening it when one of them came, but we had to continue to circle around the other side of the building to get back in. The Cable is very poor quality. The WiFi is one you have to give a credit card to get the "free" period and who knows what happens if you don't cancel. We did not use this. The air card and cell phone worked fine. We stayed here on the way out and on the way back 2 weeks later. Don't know if we would have been able to cancel the reservation or not. The credit card was billed several weeks earlier when the reservation was made. No place else in Rawlins has a pool, so if that's important, stop in a different town. Overall, I would choose someplace else next time.

We called very close to our travel dates and were relieved to get a reservation. We got the last one for the period we were here. We had to take a 30 amp, but would have preferred a 50. The sites are very close together and at odd angles to each other. It looks like they "squeezed" an extra site in between most of the existing sites. This did NOT cause any problems, though and maneuvering space for our 40 foot coach was fine. Everyone was careful of their neighbors' space and noise levels were pretty much non-existent. This camp is probably half the price and twice as nice as others in the area. Only the FamCamp Manager can make any decision of any kind. It's best to use email as he returns that before answering phone calls. Nothing happens or changes on Monday or Tuesday when he's off. We stayed 11 days and would definitely stay here again!

This is a great campground. The owners are friendly and helpful. We got a guide to our site and enjoyed the grass and trees. The campground is well kept and the pool is very inviting. The cable and the WiFi worked fine. We would stay here again or stay longer next time.

This is a great place to dry camp. It's a little busier that the campground in the North Unit and has a little more noise and traffic. Many of the sites were suitable for our 40 foot coach. We had a nice site with trees and a view of the hills in the distance. We parked on the other site of the loop from the restrooms. The only trails cutting through the center to the restrooms were in the sites on the inside of the loop, so these trails weren't useable when someone had the site. The campground gets fairly full most days and sees a lot of 1 nighters.

This is a wonderful place to camp. Many of the sites were fine for our 40 foot coach. It's a small campground and quiet most of the time. This campground probably gets less use than the one in the South Unit. The campground host was very proactive and made it a point to keep the rules enforced. This makes for a very enjoyable stay! The cell phone and air card didn't work here.

The facilities here are fair and the staff is friendly. The owner made a point of telling us how he kept the park quiet after quiet hours. We did not find this to be the case. It's pretty tight maneuvering with a 40 foot coach and a car in tow. We opted for a water and electric site for our first night out. The first site they took us to had our tow car hanging out in the road. The escort suggested we unhook it. I told him we reserved a pull through specifically so we wouldn't have to unhook and we had told them how long we were. He came back a few minutes later and took us to a different site. This park is okay, but what's really outrageous is paying $39 for a water and electric site for one night! Oh, by the way, they informed us after we registered that the water and electric sites don't have cable TV either. Nice touch.

The facilities are well maintained and the staff is friendly. We received an escort to our site. Don't get me wrong, there's noting really wrong with this park, it's just outrageous to have to pay $54 to park for a night! I'd go somewhere else if there was somewhere else. I couldn't find anything.

What a wonderful little campground! Prairie Haven is quiet and shady. The facilities are not brand new, but are meticulously maintained. Although it's small, they have some pull-throughs, some back-ins, and some tent sites. They have some 30 amp and some 50 amp sites. We had no trouble getting in or out, with our 40 foot coach with a car in tow. Prairie Haven is just what we were looking for. No frills, no pool, no WiFi and $22 for the Good Sam rate. It really beats the $54 KOA charged me the next night! The cell phone and air card worked fine. Hostess was very friendly and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We enjoyed this campground so much, that on the way out we changed our return plans so we could stay here again. Whenever we pass through this area, we'll make it a point to stop here.
