Who ever said this was a poorly kept campground must have camped somewhere else. Sites needed very little leveling. Bathrooms were spotless clean, people were friendly, and it is soooooo, convenient. Free shuttle to the Post Office, grocery store, laundry, restaurants and all sorts of great places to view the canyon. Plus you had elk and deer right in your backyard every morning. Campground could use some more trees (come on Nat Park, plant them!). We played cards every night under the stars with a nice cool breeze - it was very nice.
I really loved this park. It was more like a State Park than an RV Park. Lots of trees everywhere. The Resort has a spring in the middle of it the provides water year round, and there is a creek at the back of the park so the trees have lots of water. Wi-Fi is available only in the clubhouse. They have activities on weekends, Bingo, cookouts, etc. Lots of kids. This is a membership resort that does allow some guests. Has a very nice family atmosphere. Cabins overlooking the pond. Store was very minimalistic, I get the feeling they pretty much expect you to bring your own stuff, but the office was very, very helpful. Staff was very polite. Lots of sites way back in the woods along the creek with lots of privacy. We camped here and would do it again in a heartbeat!
This was/is a very, very, very nice campground. Yes the sites are a little tight, yes you are near the road and yes the roads are a bit much for a big rig. But like the last few posters have commented you are at the base of a mountain in a beautiful shaded pine forest. The staff is great, the store is great, the view is great. My kids really liked the playground, my wife liked the view and I was happy, everyone else was happy! It was nice to see lots of tenters mixed in with RVs. Everyone at the KOA seemed to be having a great time. The only thing this campground is missing is a pool! Also the Wi-Fi went out for a while in the morning. Overall it was great.
We stayed in the new, premium campground. Sites are good for big rigs, but as a tenter I didn't care for them. They were very spread out, and there wasn't enough tree cover for me. You had to walk down steps to get to the pad. Playground was a very, very long walk from site. Next time I think we will stay at the older campground. The activites at the Ranger Station were nice and there were lots of great trails to hike. We loved the park, but not the new campground. It just seemed rather sterile.
This is a great wooded park.. if you have a big rig go somewhere else. This is for tenters, Class C, Pop-up and trailers. Our site was level, clean and nice. The kids loved it. It was not crowded at all, but it was the off season. The forest is fantatsic. Even in the summer it is cooler that the surrounding areas. Kids loved the playground. There is a great little supply store at the entrance. This is a better campground than most in the area, albeit a bit rustic.
Campground was a mixed bag... we have kids so they really liked it, But I can see where Big Rig owners would be a little dissapointed.. it can be tight. Yes there are lots of kids, it is right next to Six Flags so you should expect that. There are lots of activities and lots of stuff for kids to do. Tenting area looked quiet. Campground was clean and staff was very friendly. Our 2 room cabin was just right.
We were delayed in starting out trip so we didn't arrive until 930pm. The owner was looking for us and greeted us at the door. We quickly moved into our cabin and hit the sack. In the morning we awoke to a beautifully shaded campground. Lots of big rigs, Class C's and a great Tent and Pop-up area too. Owners were very friendly. Our kids loved the place. Llots of kids and a great game room. They played Wii, board games, oversized connect 4. There is only a few small complaints. The Pool doesn't open until noon and it closes at 9pm. During the summer, those hours need to be longer. The sun was still up at 9pm. Also, I never could get my wireless laptop to pick up their Wi-Fi, most likely my computer. The office hours were rather strange. They were posted 9a-10a and 4p-9p, but they did stay open longer during the day when the kids were in the office.
