We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fossil Valley. We originally planned on staying 2 nights and changed it to a week instead. Blake is the friendliest, most attentive host you could find. The sites are well kept, each with soft grass and a large picnic table. There is a dumpster conveniently located as you drive out of the park. There is a new shopping area just a mile from the RV park that already has a Walmart & many other stores opening soon such as Ross & TJ Max. There is a Smith's Grocery across the street from the park and we saw many people walk or bike from the park to many local fast food restaurants. You could not find any place more convenient.
This was the site of our 2014 family campout. The reservation staff here was great to get 2 RVs close to one of their cabins so we could all be close together. The location is good and well situated for touring Canyonlands and Arches Nat. Rec. Areas. The park has a nice layout and a fun rustic feel. The pool is small, the playground is only a couple swings & a small metal slide that was unusable in the 100+ degree heat. They did have a miniature golf course and a rather pricey laundry. Cable service and Wi-Fi were great. Our biggest complaint was the campers who continued to drive through the park at unreasonably high speeds. It is rather typical KOA in a resort area: rather pricey but always a good safe area to camp, especially with children.
First off, Boulder is hardly a town but it is only about 10 miles from Pinedale which has a few services. The rate reflects Coast to Coast membership. The views of snow still in the mountains is incredible in July. The opposite direction overlooks a winding river and quiet little ranch. Many of the sites have picnic tables but they are unusable due to really tall weeds. This was our biggest disappointment. We did not expect a beautiful lawn, but they could have knocked down the weeds at each site. My husband could not wait to get out after dark to view the stars as there is no light pollution here. He was not out very long before I heard him yell and come barreling in the door. It seems a coyote was just a little curious as to what he was doing out there. Scared the daylights out of my poor husband. This is still the wild west, you know.
Rate is based on a 3-month discounted stay with a Thousand Trails membership. This park is very definitely an award winning park. If coming in for a very short stay, you may be placed up front where they put most of the shorter stay coaches. If you are staying for more than a few days, I would suggest requesting a site on either 9th or 11th Street. There are more palms and friendlier people. It is true that there is something for everyone. I especially liked the fused glass, stained glass, woodworking shop & ceramics studio. We liked it so much that we purchased an RV port so that we could return here to spend our winters. The security is top notch and you can feel totally comfortable here.
We were very pleasantly surprised that this turned out to be such a nice RV park after many old negative reviews. The park is under new management. It is very rustic with many trees and a cool bridge going over a wash. It has the feel of a wooded national park with the addition of all the services: electric/water/sewer/Wi-Fi/cable/laundry, and a ramada for groups. The sites are level and well groomed. It is mostly dirt but with a pebble top. I am really delighted that we chose to stay here and even extended our stay an extra day.
What a great place to spend the winter! The multitude of activities is absolutely unbelievable. I especially enjoyed the stained glass and fused glass classes. The instructors are so helpful (and patient). The glass shop has everything you could possibly need. The pools are very nice and quite warm which is great on days in the 60's. Close to everything you could possibly want.
This is a very unique place in the White Mountains. The RV's are parked around a large center area that is grass covered and is the place where the children run & play like children did ages ago. The place has the most welcoming hosts. The owner is an artist with a chain saw and you will enjoy all the carved wooden bears that reside here. Just a great, fun, rustic atmosphere.
This is the Passport America rate. We have stayed here numerous times making our treks across the country. It has a very nostalgic feel to it and it is fun looking around in their store and various rooms. Even their laundry is nostalgic. Make sure to check out the antique trailers that have been restored and are rented out. The only complaint is that the sites and interior roads are all gravel and can be very dusty when it is windy. We will continue to use this for our Albuquerque stopovers.
This is a Good Sam park, but we were quite disappointed especially for the price. Not in a great area. Not nicely landscaped. Sites were only OK at best. Several really ugly RV's. It was only 5 miles from Walmart and that is about the best thing it had going in our opinion. We would not return.
Great concept for an RV park right off Interstate 44 for overnight stays. Very clean and beautifully designed for easy pull-thru. Level concrete pads & patios with grill & table at each site. We very much enjoyed our until we went to leave the next morning and found that someone had taken our breakaway cable and the stem caps on our rear truck tires. Other than that, we were totally impressed.
Absolutely one of the best KOA's we have visited. We especially enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies we were given at check-in. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Close to fuel/shopping/Walmart. Great place to winter camp. Very scenic with a dusting of snow.
This park is located just outside Kirtland Air Force Base. Looks like it is not in the best part of town, but that may be misleading. The owner of the park is just great. He will greet you as you enter the park and stand by your window, guiding you very effortlessly into your site. There are mostly permanent residents and you will find a mixture of older and newer RV's. We did not find the sites to be as cramped as another reviewer stated but they are not spacious either. Entirely adequate for a short term visit. We are keeping this park as one of our preferred "spots" in our AZ-OH travels.
We have stayed here twice simply because of the location which is in very close proximity to main highways. We will not return to this park again. On both stays (June & October) we were very disappointed. There are many permanent sites towards the back. The temporary sites towards front are pretty sad - lumpy, bumpy ground with weeds instead of grass & cracked cement patios. It is close to shopping.
