Price reflects Good Sam discount and was a standard site. The 'deluxe' are more and sadly, as with most park in the Yellowstone area, overpriced and taking advantage of the park and visitors. Friendly staff, site well looked after and clean, small grass area with picnic table, gravels sites, long enough to easily fit trailer and tow truck. Wi-Fi flaky. Restrooms very nice and very clean. Close to North entrance to NP and shops. Would recommend but beware of price.

What a gem, this is a delightful campground. Very small so would recommend booking in advance. Lovely camp hosts, small patio area and picnic table, sites are rather narrow but not a big problem. Cable TV and excellent Wi-Fi/Internet. Only 1 mile from NP entrance and walking distance into the town. The big plus is the price which is very reasonable compared to other campgrounds in the Yellowstone area who are taking advantage of the tourists visiting the park. We hope the owners will not follow suit but stand apart. We certainly recommend, we loved our stay here.

Easy on off from i-80 but not too much traffic noise. Functional overnight campsite. Tarmac roads and gravel sites. There was rain overnight and the gravel on site was very thick sticky mud next morning. Delicious home cooked cookies. Wi-Fi very flaky but campground very busy. Overpriced for just electricity and water but that sadly is now common with KOA. Would recommend but bear in mind price.

We would have given a higher mark if this campground had not been so expensive. This price is with Good Sam discount! Long dirt sites with plenty of room for trailer and tow truck but sites not level. OK, the campground is on a hill but the sites could have been graded to accommodate this. Ours and all of the RVs round us had one side wheels off of the ground. Internet good at times but could be very slow. Good cable channels including the golf channel, which is quite unusual these days. Restrooms clean but in need of refurbishment. Pool and club house which we did not need to use as here to see The Rocky Mountain NP. Sorry but cannot recommend due to the price.

Sadly KOA standards have fallen and their prices have increased. The staff were lovely and this review is not a reflection of them at all. Our beef is with KOA and their falling standards and increased prices. Gravel park, no defined area of sites and road, not enough room for tow truck, which had to partly parked on the "road". Very rundown feel and untidy appearance. Although the restrooms were very clean they needed a refurbishment. Access through a narrow low tunnel. Very overpriced. Cannot recommend.

Rate reflects a Good Sam discount and we feel it was overpriced. It is a nice campsite, easy off and on to I-25 with good restrooms and a kitchen gathering area for groups. The sites are long enough to accommodate big rigs. The grounds need more maintenance, which gives it a slightly scruffy feel. The Internet/Wi-Fi was a secure site and was excellent. Although we recommend we have to say that it is overpriced.

This is one of our favourite campsites. The rate reflects for this stay a summer special discount. Once again the sites are clean and well maintained as are the pool and spa area. Very helpful friendly staff. As ever our only minus point is that the Internet is very flaky/poor but we really do recommend this campsite and will certainly stay here again.

This a delightful no frills RV park. Perfect location to visit El Malpais National Monument or for an overnight stay. Easy on and off I-40 and as other reviewers have said it is sandwiched between the I-40 and the BNSF railroad but there is really little noise. The trains do not hoot there is just a low rumble. Price reflects an extra $2 per night for 50 amp. Restrooms very clean, excellent value, we have paid much more for a lot less. Our only small complaint is that the Internet connection was flaky but the campsite was busy. Having said that the cable channels were brilliant and even included the golf channel, which is quite unusual for campsites these days. We certainly recommend and would stay here again.

Fantastic value. We stayed here 5 nights, perfect location for The Strip and downtown Vegas, also Red Rock NP and awesome Valley of Fire. Tarmac roads and large gravel sites. Good cable including the Golf Channel which you don't get in many parks these days. The best showers/restrooms that we have seen, very large laundry and as with restrooms very clean and neat. Gated for security. Pool, golf practice area. The Wi-Fi could be intermittent but great when working. We certainly recommend.

We agree with the other reviews sadly this campsite is terrible. Our site was so small and not long or wide enough for our truck and trailer and have space to sit out. We could not put out the awning because the area has not been maintained and dead trees were in the way. Because of fencing at the back of the site to try to give some privacy this meant that our sewerage connection was 3 feet into our neighbor's site. Our 23 ft sewer pipe would not reach until we had backed just an inch from the fencing, our electric connection is at the back so this had a knock on effect of having to connect the electric before we had fully parked and unhitched. The reception staff had a take it or leave it attitude as they are always full at this of year as there is nowhere else to stay unless you dry camp or drive in from outside of the park. The whole RV park area is very run down and unkempt. The prices in the general store as said by other reviewers are horrendous and gas/diesel is over $5 a gallon, which ok is slightly cheaper than at Panamint Springs. We cannot recommend this campsite at all. We have awarded it 2 solely because the internet/wifi was excellent, but we came here to have a nice experience camping while seeing the stunning sights of Death Valley.

We were prepared for basic but not as basic as we got. Overpriced for a very rough and rocky roads and site. Not big rig friendly, restrooms and showers desperately in need of refurbishment as with all of campsite in desperate need of maintenance. Try to ensure you have as much gas or diesel as possible as the prices are outrageous as is ice and the few other items in the general store. Cannot recommend.

An easy off easy on I-15 campsite but very low traffic noise. Gravel roads and sites, sites are spacious, but at an angle which is good for pulling through but loses a bit of space. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi. Good sized pool but closed during our stay. Sadly as with most KOAs these days it is overpriced.

Rate reflects weekly rate plus 3 extra nights in one of the cheapest sites. All sites, not just ours, are very cramped. We had no where to park our tow truck as well as having a sitting area. The management did allow us to park in one of their allocated parking spots. The campsite is very clean and tidy with paved roads and sites which are regularly swept and cleaned by the very good ground staff. Good pool and spa and very clean restrooms. A short walk to the beach. Good water pressure and excellent WiFi. We would have awarded a higher mark but we felt a short stay is overpriced for the space you get. And very sadly. the office staff/management are friendly but arrogant.

The rate reflects our first time stay 9 nights for the price of 7. The staff were very friendly and helpful apart from the guy who showed us to our site and he was rather grumpy. We would have given a higher overall rating if the Internet had been better but it was not good although it did improve a little by the end of our stay. It was TengoInternet, which we have used often and is usually good, the staff although friendly and helpful in other ways did not want to help sort the problem and said to contact TengoInternet, which we did not want to do. There are many park model homes but all nicely attended. The sites are all back-in but wide and we really liked the hedging between sites, which gave great privacy. There is a very good nine hole golf course and a driving range, pool and two spas and clubhouse, good library and games available. There are lots of organized events but no pressure to join. The Sands is situated fairly convenient for visiting Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park, which was the main reason for our stay. We would certainly recommend.

A very clean and tidy campsite, mostly snowbirds, very friendly helpful staff, very nice pool and area. Very convenient to shops so ideal for us to restock after taking our 5th wheel out of storage. It would have scored more points but the WiFi was terrible, when I inquired I was told it was because we were on the nightly free system ! The main problem was the water, it is very low pressure, just a trickle from the taps and undrinkable. We were not told this at check-in or that gallons of drinking water could be purchased at a third of the price of the supermarkets.

This is now a KOA park. Price reflects KOA discount for one night. There are also weekly & monthly rates. It is very much a snowbird RV park but very friendly and welcoming, we met some really nice folks during our stay here. Staff was also friendly and helpful. Nice pool and spa although pool is quite small for the size of this campground. We had good use of pool as the campground was not yet into winter capacity, and only about half full. WiFi was excellent but that could be because of low occupancy or maybe it is just excellent! All gravel sites but huge: plenty of space for ATVs, tow vehicles etc., etc. The downsides were: no picnic tables although we were told tables are on order, and the trash bins were in the farthest corner from our site, and there was no trash collection from your site. I guess it did give us some exercise although most folks drove to the bin area. Would recommend.

Very clean snowbird campsite, paved roads and sites with decorative gravel in recreational area. Easy entrance to site, but site narrow and had a feeling of being on top of one another. Friendly helpful staff. Easy on off from 95, sites near road could have road noise. Good view of lake. Good pool. Only nightly discount is for cash 5% no Good Sam etc. All campsites in Lake Havasu are overpriced hence we only stayed 2 nights, compared to other sites we saw we would recommend Havasu Falls. We would have like to stay longer but…..

Price reflects weekly rate. Paved roads, gravel sites, back to back and very narrow, but unusually long so patio areas not overlooked. Friendly, helpful staff, but staff service vehicles noisy. Overlooks beautiful Lake Mead, we were in the upper area, lower is more expensive and mainly only accessible by A class. Gents restroom clean, but needs refurbishment.There is also an area of the park that is closed with signs saying future refurbishment which needs to be done as i's making the whole park look untidy. During our stay the park was very quiet and the Wi-Fi was excellent. Cable very good.

Price reflects 7 day stay and KOA discount. Gravel sites and very, very narrow, back to back, and sharing of a central recreation area. So you are on top of neighbor. No picnic table at our site due to lack of space. Casino campsite with friendly helpful staff, and free use of pool and beach area for campsite guests. Very, very clean restrooms. Wi-Fi great at times and flaky at other times. Do Not follow the driving directions in the KOA brochure. It will take you down a terrible road where rough is actually being generous. It's do-able but make sure your cupboard contents are secure.

Easy on easy off for I-40. Staff very friendly and helpful. All gravel and sadly does have a rundown feel. Sites quite spacious. Restrooms very clean. No cable but understandable as population of Seligman is only 465. But WiFi the best we have ever had. Be aware that gas prices in Seligman are very high. Have to say again that KOA have become expensive.

I-40 stop over campsite but also good stop for the incredible Petrified Forest. Staff very friendly and helpful. All gravel park and not really clear what is site and what is road. Wi-Fi excellent but campsite was very quiet. Although near to I-40 there was very little noise. Would recommend but have to say again that KOA have become expensive.

Easy off easy on I-40 campsite, road noise minimal, some train noise as to be expected but quite a lot of aircraft noise .Friendly staff, good gift shop for Route 66 memorabilia. Price includes extra $2 for cable and extra $2 for 50 amp. Gravel park but spacious sties. Picnic tables need replacing. Wi-Fi was good at first but did get flaky during our stay and campsite not busy. Cable good lots of channels. Restrooms very good. Thought it was a bit overpriced.

A small park, price is with Good Sams discount, includes an extra $1 for 50 amp...only cash or check no credit cards accepted, but that wasn't a problem...gravel sites but very spacious. The owner is lovely and is very, very helpful and friendly. Good Wi-Fi. Convenient for local shops and for Mesa Verde National Park. Would certainly recommend this campsite.

Very expensive...long sites, but narrow and back to back parking with small grass strip for the 2 sites and that was watered every evening therefore nothing could be left out......gated for security...male check in staff member not friendly or particularly helpful but female staff member in office very helpful and friendly. Excellent Wi-Fi, but we were right by a tower and excellent cable the best we have had, good picture and big choice of stations.....also very very convenient for Arches National Park and other walks, also for Canyonlands Northern Entrance. We did enjoy Moab and our stay, but it was very, very overpriced.

Forty five with Good Sam's very expensive for what it is...but it is a monopoly especially with NPs closed due to partial government shutdown..tarmac roads and gravel sites not all very level...didn't see any staff "grading sites" after folks have left....did use restrooms on a couple of occasions and although clean they need to be refurbished/updated. Indoor pool, but did not use...souvenirs in office/shop very very expensive. Not value for money, but unless you want to boon dock, stay in NP or drive great distances then no alternative. Wi-Fi good, but we were next to office we saw lots of fellow campers with their devices sitting outside of the office to get reception...

Good overall campsite and excellent value....stay 7 nights pay for 6. Plenty to do in the area even with the partial government shutdown. Lake Powell Marina NP closed during our stay. Tarmac roads and gravel sites...not completely level, but ok. Seemed to be a bit short staffed as didn't see much cleaning of sites during our stay, but not an issue. No help to get to site but again not a big issue . Indoor pool, water temp a bit cool, but good hot tub....close to town and restaurants and Glen Canyon Dam and visitors center. A must is to visit the Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons...

We stayed for 18 nights at this delightful park. Very clean and tidy park, clubhouse and facilities which include an exercise room. Good paved roads, staff very helpful and friendly. They have group bookings but this is not a problem at all, we had no problems at all with noise. There is a certain amount of low traffic noise from the I-17, however being close to the I-17 makes it very convenient. The park is excellent for visiting Sedona and the surrounding area. This is one of the best parks we have stayed at so far and will certainly use again. We have only given it 9 out of 10 as the one downside is that the wifi/internet is poor but we are told that this is a work in progress so we are hoping it will be better by our next visit. A lovely stay here in a beautiful part of the USA.

A nice campsite, very very clean and tidy, very much a snowbird site. Staff very helpful and friendly but fellow campers a bit clicky and not overly friendly even though we were here for a week. Good exercise room and pool with spa. Easy access from I-10 but far enough away for no traffic noise. It is near the railroad which doesn't bother us. Our big disappointment and why we did not give it a higher rating is that the advertised observatory did not operate for the whole week and having read other reviews for this campsite this seems to be a common complaint. The observatory was one of the main reasons we chose this site, we were told it was under repair but again that has been noted on other reviews as the reason for it being closed.

Sadly this campsite was very poor. The KOA brochure says landscaped sites well it may have been several years ago. Our site and most that we saw were not level, the gravel had not been raked, goats are allowed to roam around the site in the evenings. My husband used the restrooms/shower area on arrival and said they were disgusting, the urinals were off the wall. There were tools in the vicinity as though work was to be carried out but no sign of this work happening. We are sorry to have to say that we have noticed in general on this trip, January through March that KOA standards are falling but the prices are increasing. The one plus point was that the wifi/internet was very good, a good strong connection however were fairly near the office and the site was not fully occupied. A disappointing stay.
