Overall, this campground is nice. The people working here are extremely nice and helpful, and the sites are adequate. They did have a small little patch of faux grass for the dog, good cable, nice long pull throughs and so-so Wi-Fi. That being said, there was a strange stench in the air. Didn't smell like sewer, but did have a farm animalish smell, yet we didn't see any farm animals. This is our second time to stay here due to the ease of getting to it from the highway, plus they have a fantastic gift shop that would make the nicest boutique's jealous. We would stay here again.

This was an excellent KOA. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. Sites were level, great Wi-Fi, good cable and super amenities. Putt Putt golf course on site, several fenced dog parks, they serve breakfast and pizza each day between Memorial Day and Labor Day (we missed it by a week); pool, cleanest restrooms I've ever seen; playground. Very nice and we would definitely stay there again!

Nice campground. The Pros: Wooded, quiet, great Wi-Fi, cable and amenities. Cons: Easy to miss on highway, our spot was difficult to get out of. The owner is a nice man who takes you to your site and helps set up. He also helps, if you need it, to get out of your space. We had difficulty maneuvering around trees, rocks, trucks, etc. But our space was nice and wooded, level and very quiet. If coming from Durango, go through 1st Pagosa Springs town, past lake, down a steep hill and they are located at bottom of hill on left. Its an accident waiting to happen, very dangerous intersection. But we would definitely stay here again!!

This is our second stay at this park and we really like it. It is close to downtown, all pads are concrete, level, the staff are very nice, and accommodating. However, we did use an RV service to find an electrical short in our motorhome which turned out to be a simple loose connection. This Mobile RV Service took 4 hours to find the problem and charged us $400. We felt like we had been taken to the cleaners. So although the KOA is very very good, do not use Mobile RV Service for anything. This 1-man shop is not that knowledgeable, otherwise, it would not have taken him 4 hours to fix a simple problem. We would definitely stay here again and definitely would not use this man ever again.

This is truly a beautiful RV park and convenient. Like the previous comment, it is easy to miss if you're not paying attention and there is quite a bit of road construction in and around the park, however, it stopped and started at a decent hour. Also like a previous comment stated, it can be tight for big rigs. I know this from experience as I bumped the passenger side mirror on a tree and knocked it off getting into our spot. First time that has ever happened. They put the trees on the road side of both pulling in and pulling out of each spot. In a motorhome, it can be difficult to make the proper swing into your spot. However, we did pick up a card of a RV service tech that came out immediately, ordered the part from Monaco, had it next day shipped and within 24 hours, we had a new mirror and he only charged us $50.

POSITIVES: Convenient to highway; had all necessities (cable TV, 50 amp, good water pressure, WiFi) and fairly level. NEGATIVES: WEED CITY. The first day we were here, I spent picking the weeds out of our site's gravel, just so it looked better. Although we were in a motorhome, we chose a back-in spot in the very back of the park for more privacy and a little bit of grass for the dog. If possible, pick the back-in spot at the very rear, far left side. Best spot in the park. Mostly gravel park and this town is dead. There is very, very, very, did I mention VERY little to do in this town. We also thought we were closer to the Tetons and Yellowstone and found the dirt road the prior comment told about. We decided to try that road cause it looked like a shortcut, but 5 miles up it, we ran across a guy who said a grizzly bear had just been in the road. We turned around and went the long way home. This park would be fine for overnight only. Do Not Stay Here as a halfway point to Yellowstone and Tetons. You will regret it.

We almost didn't stay here due to the previous reviews, but we found this park to be very well maintained. Our grass was cut and we had a nice spot across from a flowing stream. Down side is there is no sewer hookups, cable TV, our satellite didn't work here and we were unable to get any local TV stations out of Billings, but we really didn't miss it. Although the pull-through wasn't quite long enough for our 38' motorhome along with our 12' trailer, we were able to put our trailer across the road (not sure we were suppose to, though). We would definitely stay here again.

What a gem of a place to stay! The people at the office couldn't have been nicer and more helpful, the spaces weren't too close together, had a firepit for a campfire, and our satellite and antenna worked great. We had no problem with the WiFi, although some of the people further away from the office did. This park is right next door to the nicest city parks I have ever seen. There is a fish hatchery that is incredible right next door as well. There is a stream/creek running along the edge of the property where tent campers can set up and there is a large stream running along the other side for larger RV's to back up to. This is one of the cleanest and nicest little towns and we just couldn't get over how beautifully maintained everything was. We look forward to staying here again in the future.

What an awesome park this was! I felt like we were staying in a State Park with cable TV! This park is very wooded, close to town yet secluded, plenty of shade to sit out and be out of the sun with a firepit. We feel blessed to have been able to stay here! They had plenty of things for kids to do, lots of area walk in and close to everything in Custer. I can't think of anything this park could do differently to make itself better. We would definitely stay here again.

The park itself was not bad at all, was great for a stop over. Here's the bad: CRICKETS and GRASSHOPPERS. They were EVERYWHERE and if you have a phobia about these critters like I do, you tend to spend a great deal of time inside. There wasn't a whole lot the campground could do about that, but just letting you know. Very few trees, unlevel gravel spaces. Here's the Good. Plenty of water pressure, good cable TV and easy on and off the interstate. Word of warning: When pulling out of your pull-through space, take it slow as there is a HUGE curb you must go over and it will toss you around like a rag doll. It provided for most of our needs.

We stayed here for two weeks right on the river. Had a beautiful view with deer, bear and elk coming right up to your RV. The hosts were incredibly nice and accommodating. The entrance is a little tricky in that you must go over a pretty rough "curb" pulling into the park. It will shake everything in your coach, so take it slow. Its a fairly steep hill down to the river sites, so if you need to unhook a toad, do it either by the office or at the bottom of the hill. WiFi worked well even though we were as far away from the office as we could be and the cable TV was very good. Site was a little tricky backing into, but not impossible.

This is our third time to stay here and we have never been disappointed. We love the close proximity to town (walking distance), the hosts are the BEST hosts we have ever encountered. They not only help each and every guest into their spot, they have been known to back your rig in for you if you need them to. This is our absolute favorite campground to stay in and we have been all over the US.

This is our second time to stay here for an overnight stay. Very nice and clean park, with LONG pull-through's, great cable TV, WiFi, and lady at front desk was very accommodating. There is a creek that runs along side of the campground as well. Appears to have some full timers living here, however, they are in a completely different section of the park and are hardly noticeable. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice, convenient little campground. It's pushing it to say they have WiFi; yes, they do have it, but they don't want you using it. Upon checking in, we were told we could use the WiFi to check mail, but no downloading, etc., or they would cut us off. Sure enough, I had used about an hour of WiFi late at night, no downloading, and the next day I was cut off. So, if WiFi isn't a big deal to you, this is a great place to stay. Some of the spots had spectacular views, others were so-so. We have Verizon phone service and there was absolutely NO service whatsoever here. Owners were not overly nice, but nice enough, and even cooked a BBQ dinner for guests staying over 4th of July, which was very nice. We would stay here again as a stop-over.

We loved staying here! We were here to see the bluebonnets and wildflowers and, unfortunately, it rained the whole week. But the park was extremely clean, quiet, and the staff very helpful. We had a great view, and the only problem we had was the asphalt gave way on the rear end of the motorhome due to poor asphalt construction and much rain. We literally sunk our rear jack 6" into the asphalt. The motorhome across from us had the same problem and had to move their motorhome forward a couple feet in order to relevel. But, that aside, we would definitely stay here again, and look forward to staying here again!

This was ok for an overnight stay, but nothing more. Spots were unlevel (our jacks were not working and the poor dog kept rolling down the floor of the motorhome), and all gravel. Looked to have a number of full timers staying here; although the park was fairly quiet. We would stay here again only as a stop-over.

Easy access in and out of, but it's all gravel which meant when it rained; and it rained every day we were here, it was a muddy mess getting in and out of the motorhome or walking the dog. No shade, but beautiful mountain views and a river running alongside it. Halfway between Yellowstone and Cody, so location was good, restaurant was nice and well priced. Would stay here again.

A beautiful and quiet campground. Our site was right across the street from the lake and small airport, you could watch the planes take off and land without being disturbed by the noise. Large open area lots, with easy access to all Petit Jean State Park had to offer. Would definitely camp here again!

Not a bad park for overnight. Level, gravel sites, some shade, great Wifi and cable. We did not have the same problem the previous reviewer had regarding the cattle smell. We would definitely stay here for 1-2 nights.

Nice park like setting, however, spots were not level, no satellite reception, mostly gravel, but heavily wooded. Mosquitoes were horrible, however, I don't believe it was exclusive to this park. This time of year the mosquitos are bad everywhere around Diamond Lake. They did warn us when we checked in about the mosquitos. Two little amish men helped us into our spot which was nice, but they were a bit bossy. Very clean campground. We would definitely stay here again. Nice proximity to Diamond Lake, Waterfalls and Crater Lake.

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this campground was. Concrete level pads, trees, picnic tables and in town with very little road noise. Easy access from highway. We would definitely stay here again.

This park was very convenient, however, we camped in a 38' coach and were squashed between a caboose (I'm serious) and another 40' coach. RV's, trailers, coaches were everywhere. The roads within the park were extremely narrow and dirt and difficult to get in and out of. I"m amazed I was able to get out. Slides barely made it out. Nice staff though. Lots of full timers. We would not stay here again.

WOW is the only word I can use for this park. It's right in town; concrete pads, trees, very organized staff, free shuttle to downtown. We would definitely stay here again and next time, for longer! Excellent RV park with lots of activities; especially for a KOA. We've never seen a KOA like this!

Nice campground. Had BBQ dinner each evening that you can purchase. Quiet with trees. Appeared to have a fair amount of full timers there. We would camp there again.

Although this campground is mostly back-in's and you're close to your neighbor, it is still one of my favorite campgrounds to stay at. Largely due to the managers, Chris & Margie, who make your stay so very enjoyable as well as its proximity to downtown Manitou Springs. This is our second time to stay a week here and when we leave, we have new friends and good memories. There is no cable and limited sites have satellite, but unless that is a deal breaker, this is #1 in my books.

Appeared to be a "worker camp." Their website said, and I quote, "Come stay overnight at the ranch, on the scenic Yakima River in central Washington." It goes on to say, "Easy Pull-Through Access, Rustic Club House, Livestock and Wildlife Viewings." Now, let's break down Truth from Fiction. STATEMENT: "Come stay overnight at the ranch." REALITY: There was no ranch. There was a patch of grass in the middle of a cow pasture. STATEMENT: "On the Scenic Yakima River in Central Washington." REALITY: We never saw ANY river. STATEMENT: "Easy Pull-Through Access." REALITY: There was nothing easy about maneuvering 52' of motorhome and trailer through parked cars, trucks and 100 year old Airstreams. I also had to dodge the port-a-potty. STATEMENT: "Rustic Club House." Now, unless they are referring to the bulletin/chalk board at the road that listed the rules, and a kiosk to put your payment in, I never saw any such club house. STATEMENT: "Livestock and Wildlife Viewings." Well, this one may be the closest to the truth. We were sharing a field with the cattle, and the wildlife viewings we saw were mosquitoes that were running rampant here. Even our poor dog was scratching from the mosquitoes. If you don't mind staying in a field with LeRoy scratching himself as he stands in the doorway of his 15' 1948 Airstream on blocks, then this isn't that bad.

Park was gravel with no shade trees and trailers close together. Appeared to have quite a few long term campers. Walking path that was a bit interesting with rabbits EVERYWHERE. Not a bad place to stay for one night, but anything more than that, I wouldn't do. However, for Casper, WY, I don't know if it gets any better. Not a great place to visit in my opinion. It was easy to get in and out, though.

We loved staying here. Concrete pads and paved roads; no gravel anywhere...The owners/managers were incredibly accommodating as we came in late; each spot had its own grassy area with picnic table. Ultra clean park and each spot had a tree or two. It was such a welcome relief after some of the other places we've stayed in Washington. Close to Mt. St. Helens and the office provided loads of information on local spots. Walking trail which was very scenic. We would most definitely stay here again. Matter of fact, we didn't want to leave!

This was one of the nicest private campgrounds we've stayed in. Very wooded, yet easy access for our 40' motorhome and trailer; very clean and quiet and actually reminded us of a state park setting. Very close to Glacier National Park and very close to the Hungry Horse Dam which was a beautiful road that ran beside it. The lots were mostly level, however, the park is gravel and hilly, so impossible to be 100% level. Deer came into the park regularly and the owners couldn't be any nicer. Great little store in the office area. We would definitely stay here again; we look forward to it!

Beautiful setting especially if you are on the river. It is worth the extra money. Most of the sites are very close to each other and there are a lot of long term renters. The staff were very helpful and courteous and even cut half a tree down for us to get our motorhome into the space. There was a dog park, walking trails, playground, family/group settings. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and nice as well. This would be a great place for a family to camp. We would definitely stay here again.

I really liked this campground. Its perched on top of a cliff, was small, with easy access off Hwy. 25 and most spots had good views. The owners were extremely nice and helpful in parking the motorhome. Free Wi-Fi, however, awful TV. We would definitely stay here again.

The owners were very nice; helpful. The location was clean, however, difficult to get into. It was a pull-thru but was awkward to get into with a motorcycle trailer. We have a 38' motorhome with a 12' trailer and we just could not clear the electrical box with the trailer due to the angle of the turn. Our mirrors were 6" from the neighbors 5th wheel and we ended up having to unhook the trailer and reposition. For an overnight stay, it was fine.

This was a great park. Small, right on the beach, very friendly and helpful host and a great spot to watch the sunrise in the morning. The casino shuttles you from the RV park to the casino. One of the best spots we've stayed at. A bit off the beaten path, but well worth it. We would definitely stay here again.

Such a nice park; if your permanent or semi-permanent. Lots of park models with permanent residents; nice lake in the middle of the park; plenty of activities for seniors. Our spot appeared to be an after-thought and I felt like we were parked in someone's front yard. Everyone was very friendly and nice though. I believe this is more for snowbirds visiting Florida for several months or permanent residents. Good location!

Although this is a beautiful park, it is difficult getting a 37' or larger motorhome into a spot here. It can be done, but the roads are very narrow, all sand, with low hanging branches and mostly back-in sites. But it is a nice park otherwise.

We were put up in this park for free by Suncoast RV for which we were trading in our RV for a new one. This is a lovely RV park with its own little lake that you can fish from, the roads were very good, the park was clean and well kept, the spots were adequately spaced and had lots of shade. We were here for 6 days and would definitely stay here again. Very nice park with nice outdoor covered pool area and bathhouse.

We picked this park because it was listed as the only Good Sams Park in Hattiesburg. We arrived just at dusk and the office had already closed. We proceeded to find a spot and were met with horrible, bumpy roads; the spots were randomly numbered and impossible to figure out; it looked like people were living in tiny little campers permanently. The only positive about this park was it was right off the hwy. We probably would not stay here again.

We love this park! It's beautiful, wooded and most sites have lake views. We have stayed here several times and always look forward to staying here. We even get satellite coverage with all the trees. We would definitely stay here again and look forward to coming back!

This was an awesome State Park. They even had cable which I've never seen at a State Park. The park was beautiful with moss hanging from the trees and very wooded lots. They had handicapped Rv spots that we used and were wonderful. We had deer come right up to our door. We would definitely camp here again.

This park was beautiful! From the moss hanging from the trees to the river view, our visit here was excellent. The sites were large, huge concrete pad with picnic tables, fire pit and very wooded. The only negative was getting to it. It was a bit difficult to find, but worth the search. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for the Balloon Festival as it was within a couple miles of the event. As mentioned in previous reviews, this park is completely gravel and when I say gravel, I mean lots and lots of gravel. It rained one of the nights we were there and our jacks sunk into the gravel and caused the RV to lean. There was no grass anywhere for our little dog. They have speed bumps everywhere and one was so large our jacks dragged on it. This was one of the worst parks we've stayed at. The rate of $69 was the Balloon Festival price and completely ridiculous. We would not stay here again.

This was a typical RV campground next to the highway and close to train tracks. They had very level lots (we didn't have to use our jacks) and the hosts were very nice and helpful. The main negative to this campground is the trains that come through between 4:45 am and continue until about 6:30 am and it's right next to a Wal-Mart. We would probably stay here again for a one night stop but nothing more.
