We have stayed at this park many times, and probably will continue to stay there - most of the sites are concrete pull-throughs, and the park is landscaped very attractively. However, I have to mention something that we noticed on a previous visit, that really made our visit less enjoyable this time. There are at least 2 cats that roam through the park at will. It drives our dogs crazy, and if you know anything about hound dogs, they get very noisy when they are chasing "prey". I asked the woman in the office about the cats, and she said that they live next door to the park. She has called the Humane Society about them, but nothing has been done. To make matters worse, some of the residents of the park feel sorry for the cats, and put food out for them. The management has asked them to stop, but they still do it. I don't know what should be done, but I do know that I would hesitate to stay in this park for an extended visit if the cats are still there.

This was one of the better KOA campgrounds that we've stayed at. Our pull-through site had plenty of room, and we had no problem getting in and out of it. The construction on the road leading into the park made finding the park very confusing. The main reason I gave a low score is because the road noise from I-10 is unbearable. It didn't let up all night. We would look for another park if in the area again.

This is a gorgeous park, very quiet with lots of trees. We stayed in one of the lake view sites, and had plenty of room for our 38' RV and tow vehicle. Unfortunately, we could only stay one night, but would have loved to stay longer. FYI -we got carryout from The Bodacious BBQ restaurant right off the interstate and it was very tasty.

This is an ok park for an overnight stay (hence the name). It is right off I-40, and only one block away from The Big Texan. The laundry room has a more than adequate number of washers and dryers, but it is only open 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. The highway noise is there, but it didn't keep us awake. There are a lot of other parks in the area, so we might try another one if we were driving through again.

As other reviewers have said, this park is basically a dirt parking lot with hook-ups. However, I don't know who the rude person was who one reviewer dealt with, because the woman in the office when we arrived was extremely helpful and very nice. It's also nice to have an RV repair facility at the back of the park - we had our oil changed right at our site before we left in the morning. We also went to Mesa Italiano for dinner, but we thought the food was way overpriced for a small-town restaurant. We might stay there again if we were in the area. BTW, don't miss the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert - they're awesome!

This is one huge RV resort among many other huge RV resorts in the Phoenix area. We liked Mesa Spirit - the sites are large, and there is a concrete pad next to each site to park your car. As another reviewer mentioned, it's almost impossible to see the entrance to the park - if you're heading west on Main Street, turn right before the Midas sign. We were stuck all the way in the back of the park since we have dogs (there is a certain section set aside for dog owners), and there was a very nice big fenced in area to let your dogs run off leash. The park is very close to grocery shopping and restaurants. If you have more than 2 dogs, this resort and one in Surprise are the only parks that will accommodate you that I am aware of. We were not there at the high season, and there were many open sites - I'm sure it would be very crowded when the snowbirds got there. We would probably stay there again, due to the dog situation.

This is kind of an unusual park. There is an area with full hook-ups with no view of the lake, and then there is area with water and electric only that has great views of the lake. We stayed in the latter, and my husband said that it looked like a military parade ground. Just a big flat sandy area with hook-ups sticking out of the ground. This must not be their busy season, because I think there were only about 5 other RV's out where we were. As other reviewers have said, it's about a 15 minute drive to any gas stations/restaurants. We saw "evidence" of the wild burros, but never actually got to see one in person. I don't think we would stay there again. It's close enough to the Phoenix metro area that you could easily find a better park there.

This campground is basically a big parking lot with hookups, but if you get a premium site, you have a patch of grass and a tree. However, the proximity to the Las Vegas strip makes up for the lack of landscaping. You can easily walk to Circus Circus. The pull-through sites were spacious. All the workers were very nice and helpful, and the whole park was neat and clean. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

This is a very nice state park, no frills, but beautiful scenery and nice long pull-through sites. It's a little distance to Winslow, but not bad. Actually, it was nice not to have city lights spoil the night sky - we felt like we could see every star that is up there! We enjoyed the area so much that we extended our 1 day visit to 2 days. We would definitely stay there again if in the area.

This is just a parking lot with RV hook-ups. It was fine for a one night stay, but would not stay any longer. "Pop's" rules for dogs were a little extreme in my opinion. They were only allowed to do their "business" in the 10x10 fenced in dog area. Did you ever try to stop a male Basset Hound from urinating for over 30 feet? However, other parks in the area looked worse, so if we were in the area again we would probably stay there.

I know I'm repeating other reviewers, but this is a great park! Unlike other parks we've seen in the area, this one has lots of trees, nice long pull-through sites, and everything is clean and neat. The laundry area has 6 washers and 8 dryers. We stayed during Balloon Fiesta (thus the high price for the site), and lucked out in getting a site when someone else cancelled. We liked it so much that we wanted to stay another couple of days, but we were only able to get 1 day extra since they were all booked up. The people working at the park, and all the campers that we met were super-friendly. The only reason I didn't give it a "10" was because it is very close to I-40, and the noise is distracting, but only when you're outside. We will definitely stay here again!

We stayed at this park one night while visiting relatives in Yukon. There is not a lot of choice on the southwest side of OKC. This is an older park and there appears to be some long-term residents, but their units weren't trashy or run-down. We had an escort to our site which was a nice pull-through with plenty of room to park our toad. As was mentioned in other reviews, there is no cable TV, but they are in the process of running the cables throughout the park (lots of trenches and mounds of dirt all over), and the manager assured me that by the next time we stay there it will be all done. We would definitely camp here again when in the area.

This is a very nice campground - long, level pull-through sites, lovely landscaping, and everything is clean and well-maintained. My husband tried the "private" shower/bathroom, and it truly was private, with a separate lockable room for each one. There was a spacious fenced-in dog play area also. The only reason I didn't give it a "10" was because the park is really out in the "boonies" - great access off I-20, but about 15 minutes away from a town with any amenities. However, if we were traveling this way again, we would definitely stay here. By the way, we received 2 obviously homemade chocolate chip cookies when we checked in, and they were delicious!

We have stayed at this park several times and have always found it to be very acceptable. The park is neat and clean and has a very nice pet walk area. As other reviewers have stated, the park is right across the street from the casino (BTW, the buffet at the casino is awesome), and shuttles run frequently. There is only one reason I didn't give a higher rating. We had made reservations, but we knew that we were running late, so I called the office to let them know. The person I spoke with said that was no problem and to just pull into any empty site. However, she failed to tell me that there were a limited number of 50 amp sites or where they were located. We realized that after we had already set up in a 30 amp site and were having difficulties with the electric (the breaker kept tripping). I ran around the whole park looking for 50 amp sites, and finally found the last one that was available. Otherwise, we liked the park and would stay there again.

This is a very nice park. We stayed here overnight, and had a long, spacious pull through site. The owners were very congenial - someone stayed an extra day in the site we were supposed to be in, so they upgraded us to a better site at no charge. The only problem we had was finding the road to turn into off the highway. The sign for the park was actually after the turnoff, so we had to make a u-turn (not the easiest thing to do in a 38 footer). FYI - take the turnoff to the baseball complex to get to the RV park. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice RV resort! We stayed here for one night on our way home from the Florida Keys. The office was closed when we arrived, but they left out directions, and we were able to find our site quickly and easily. The roads and sites are concrete - the sites are long but narrow. The landscaping is gorgeous, and there is plenty of open space so you don't feel cramped like in many Florida campgrounds. The only reason I didn't give this a "10" is because the resort backs up to I-95 and the traffic noise is very annoying. I wish we could have stayed longer - we will definitely be back!

The location of this campground is awesome, but the sites themselves leave a little to be desired. We were lucky enough to get a waterfront site (for prime seasons you MUST reserve sites 11 months in advance - try working on two computers at the same time when the reservations open at 8 am). The sites are designed with the electric hookups in the right rear; therefore if you want to pull into the site to take advantage of the water view, you must have extra electric cable. The water hookup is in the front of the site near the road, so you must have extra water hose. Also the campground is right under the Bahia Honda bridge, so the traffic noise can be quite loud. The park staff was very friendly and helpful. I don't think we would stay here again - would try another campground closer to Key West.

This is a beautiful RV resort! We stayed here for one night on our way down to the Florida Keys. All sites and roads are concrete - sites are wide and long. The landscaping is gorgeous. We got here after the office had closed, but they left out information that enabled us to find our site quickly and easily. Sure wish we could have stayed here longer - we WILL be back!

We stayed here one night while my husband attended the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Daytona speedway. The campground was nice, but the RVs were all crammed together like sardines. When our slide was out, it was on top of our neighbor's picnic table. The camp hosts were friendly, there was plenty of room to walk our dogs, but I wouldn't want to stay here for any length of time due to the crowded conditions.

We stayed here one night while attending a concert in Jacksonville. The pull-throughs in the front of the campground are long and easy to get into, but you're subjected to more of the interstate noise in these sites. Other sites around the lake (must be for longer stays) are more secluded. We ate lunch and breakfast at the cafe on site, and the food was very good. We would definitely stay here again.

The setting of this campground is very nice and peaceful. The premium sites are very nice but the standard sites need some work: mostly sand and the concrete pads are cracked. If it had rained, our jacks would have sunk. Our rate reflects race week "jacked up" prices. I guess everybody does it, but it still annoys me. We would come back during a non-event time.

This campground has potential but needs some work. Gravel roads and gravel sites, not very level - our back tires were lifted off the ground by the jacks in order to get us close to level. Lots of room to walk our dogs. We might stay there again if in the area.

Nice campground for an overnight stay. Right off I-10 behind a Super 8 and next door to a truck stop with a casino. Paved roads and graveled sites. Traffic noise was no problem. Cable TV had good selection, and staff was very nice. Would stay there again.

This is a very nice campground: all sites are concrete and all roads are paved. Big grassy area to walk dogs right along the river. The laundry room is big for a campground this size (4 washers/4 dryers) and everything is neat and well-maintained. The only problem is the traffic noise from the I-35 bridge. We had to leave our fan on all night to cover the noise. Good location: probably would stay here again.

This campground is very nice, the setting is beautiful by the lake, and the pull-thru sites are long and spacious. As someone else mentioned, the sand spurs are a real problem - we had a big open field right behind our site, but our dogs couldn't go anywhere near it without getting their feet covered in sand spurs. My only other issue with this campground is that you are not only charged for the campsite, but also the entrance fees for the park for each camper for each day you are there - I've never heard of this in a state park before. We'd probably still stay there again when in the area.

Nice campground for an overnight stay. Located right off I-10 and easy to find if you follow their directions (GPS led us way out of our way). The lady in the office was a real peach: so kind and friendly. We were running late, and she stayed after the office was supposed to close and waited for us, also offering driving directions when we got lost. The park was nothing fancy, but we'd probably stay here again if we were in the area.

We stayed here back in 2006 just after the resort opened, and the only thing that has changed is that MANY more people have found this hidden gem! This is a great campground - all roads and sites are concrete, pull-thrus are easy to access, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

I agree with all of the previous reviews - this is a gorgeous campground! The pull-through sites are long and spacious and everything is very well-maintained. The park employees are very helpful and friendly, and the park is located near everything in Destin. If you get a chance, go watch the sunset at AJ's on the water - beautiful! Sure would like to come back here when the weather is warmer!

As mentioned in the earlier reviews, this campground is right off I-10, and good for an overnight stay. However, the traffic noise was rather annoying all night. Nothing fancy, but full hook-ups are nice. Not sure if we'd stay here again.

Very large mobile home park with a few RV sites. The site was fine but you had to drive all the way to the back of the park to get to it. Next time we're in the area, we'll stay at Stone Mountain Park.

As mentioned in earlier reviews, this is a mobile home park with a few RV sites. The park was very quiet and well-maintained and there was a nice big grassy area for our dogs to run. No frills, or bells and whistles, but with the dearth of RV parks near Raleigh, it's not bad. We would stay here again.

The campground is in a very scenic setting, right on a lake with lots of trees. You can hear the calls of the loons in the early morning. There are no water or sewer hookups, obviously no WiFi or cable TV, and only 30 amp electric, so it's really suited more for primitive camping. They start taking reservations on a specific day in April and it's standing room only from early in the morning. Most of the popular dates book up very quickly. We were visiting family in nearby Maple Lake, so this campground was very convenient. There is nothing else any closer than St. Cloud. We would stay there again if back in the area.

This is the nicest KOA campground that we've ever stayed at. The location is very nice, with sites set among the trees. It sits right off the interstate, which is the only drawback, but I really didn't hear any traffic noise with the air conditioner on. The hosts who checked us in, were very nice and extremely helpful. Our site was a huge pull-through with a nice grassy area and a patio with furniture. A host came around in the morning with coffee and newspapers. They have a nice fenced-in pet area. We would have stayed an extra night if we could have. Actually looking for reasons to go back to the area so we can stay there again.

This campground is under new ownership. The owner was very nice and accommodating. We stayed on a holiday weekend, and normally you'd have to stay 2 nights or more, but since we were traveling, he said we could stay in an overnight pull-through. It was a nice site and we had plenty of room. The park was very crowded since it was a holiday, but it was a very pleasant stay. We would definitely stay here again, and I'm sure that this new owner will continue to make improvements to the campground.

First the good news - the campground is very nice and clean. Long, pull-through paved sites, nice grassy areas. We got in around 7:30 p.m., and the girl at the check in office/Mini Mart was SO nice and helpful. She told us that if we wanted late check-out the next day, all we had to do was come to the office in the morning and let them know, and we could stay until 2 p.m. (normal check-out is 11 a.m.). We took the security shuttle over to the casino that night (no charge) and had a great time. Now the bad news - the next morning, my husband went over to the office/Mini Mart and the girl who was working there then said that late check out was 12 p.m. and that the girl working the night before didn't know what she was talking about. She was also not very nice. My husband then attempted to take the shuttle to the casino and was told that it would be $5 each way (for less than a 1/4 mile drive!). He walked over instead (very doable). BTW, I had read on some websites that they have Wi-Fi, but they don't. The setting of this RV park is very nice with the St. Louis arch across the river, but until they do something with the "Jekyll/Hyde" attitude between the night and day shifts, we would never stay there again.

This is a wonderful campground! Long, pull-through gravel sites, accessible hook-ups, and strong Wi-Fi signal. No cable TV, but you can get about 13 air channels. The owners are VERY nice and helpful. The whole place looks neat as a pin - I don't know how long it's been open, but everything looks new. The campground is out in the middle of no where, but that's Iowa! If you get a chance, get a pizza at The Pizza Place in Center Point - excellent!

The views of the mountains from this park are awesome! Nice long pull-through sites, cable TV and wi-fi signals were strong. Nice big grassy area for the dogs to run in. The manager was not overly friendly, but answered our questions. Quiet hours were supposed to be 10 p.m. til 8 a.m., but at 7:15 a.m. a bunch of motorcyclists who were staying there started revving their engines and shouting to each other - not very quiet! Short drive to Walmart, restaurants, etc. If you get a chance eat at Casa Raul Mexican restaurant - excellent! We would stay here again.

As other commenters have mentioned, this is a no-frills campground with a good location. We have stayed at other KOAs, and I swore that I would never stay at another one, but I gave Daytona Beach one more try. Needless to say, I will stick to my guns this time - no more KOAs! The work-kampers displayed little personality, and in one instance was downright rude. The campground was bare bones, very few trees, grass sites. The two things that might save it are that it was clean and orderly, and as mentioned before, in a great location. However, we will not stay here again.

We stayed in the campground for 2 nights. The owners were very nice and helpful - we got in late the first night, but they waited for us and guided us to our site. Nice, long pull-through site; however, they are not very wide - kind of tight with slides out. As another reviewer mentioned, campground is right off I-10 - some traffic noise if your AC isn't on. We would stay here again.

As previous reviews mentioned, this is basically a mobile home park that has RV sites available for rent. No frills, no extra amenities, but the park is clean, quiet and there was a lot of room to walk our dogs. The management was very friendly and helpful, and so were the residents. We will definitely stay here again when we're in the Raleigh area.

We stayed here for 2 nights in March while visiting friends in Salisbury, MD. Campground employees were very friendly. I know it was the off season, but I was not impressed with the campground itself at all. Sites were muddy with very little gravel and no trees. I wish it were nicer because it's the most convenient campground to Salisbury, but I would not stay here again.

We stayed here for one night on our way from MD to SC. Very nice park right off of I-95. A little traffic noise, but not bad. Nice level, large sites. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Very convenient to restaurants, Wal-Mart, Lowe's, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here 1 night on our way from SC to MD. Very convenient to I-95, but out in the middle of nowhere for amenities. Drove 15-20 minutes to very small town of Enfield for grocery store/minimal restaurants. Had been a lot of rain prior to our visit and the park was a muddy mess. Had RV problems before we left the next day, and couldn't find the park managers anywhere. I would NEVER stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights in June - hot as heck, but that's Florida in June! Nice park, clean, with attractive landscaping. Had a pull-thru site, but it was very cramped and barely long enough for our RV and tow vehicle. We're not swimmers, but the pool area was gorgeous. Very little shade where we were so A/C really had to struggle to keep up with heat. Within walking distance of old town Kissimmee - neat place!

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending the Greenville AKC dog show. Mostly permanent and long-term residents, but the "overnight" sights have plenty of room and the roads are wide. The residents were very friendly and the owner (even though I never actually SAW her) was accessible by cell phone and very accommodating and helpful. Very quiet park with lots of trees. Great location close to downtown and Carolina First Center. No Wi-Fi or cable for overnight guests (I think they have cable for long-term).
