Gated park. Clear satellite reception, strong Verizon MI-Fi. Clean, individual bathroom/shower combination rooms. Good laundry room with efficient dryers (how rare nowadays). Would have rated 10, but the sites, while long, are too narrow/close for our taste.
It's like coming home to family when we stay here, with the clean facilities and southern hospitality. Gravel roads wind through grassy acreage, surrounded by mature trees with spanish moss. Not a destination, but perfect for a quiet overnight, one convenient mile from I-75. The owners of almost 25 years may soon retire, but whoever manages it inherits a gem, so we will be sure to keep it on our list! We will definitely return whenever we pass this way.
Wow! A beautiful park with lake views and long, sandy beaches. Surprising to find cable television and laundry machines in a county park. Gravel roads, concrete pads. Showers very clean, though laser-beam sprays. We will most definitely stop here again, just a few miles from the interstate, but worlds away in peace.
Quick check-in with 4 entrance lanes. Great laundry room. Loved the showers. Sites not too close. Good cable selection. Perfect for exploring all that Chattanooga has to offer: it took us 3 days to explore Lookout Mountain, Aquarium & IMAX 3D theatre, and ride bikes on riverside trail.
Best showers we've seen this year. Asphalt pads, cement patios, lush grass lawns between, pleasantly shady (no satellite). Staff works hard and the clean sites show it. Strong Verizon Mi-Fi, good park Wi-Fi, good hookups. A previous reviewer said a public road split the camp sites, but we think they must have reviewed the wrong park. We did not follow the GPS, but called instead and received correct directions.
What a great overnighter! Very level, cement pads Excellent hookups, strong electrical, very strong Verizon Mi-Fi. Bathrooms would rate a 10, except women's showers had unappealing black stains in floor grout and rusty fixtures.
Efficient office staff. Our Verizon Mi-Fi did not work, but the park Wi-Fi did. Would rate higher, but a few drawbacks for us: horrible dusty road going to the upper sites, even at 5 mph. Did not care for the showers, which would be better suited to Munchkins. Inconvenient dump station location. Caution: an entering RV and exiting RV could not pass one another near the office.
Flawless is the only word we could think of. We loved the owners, who are constantly working and extremely personable. Quiet serenity, impeccably clean, excellent price. Glad we discovered it, as we will definitely make this one of our I-81 stops.
Bathrooms just OK (being generous here). Showers share a dressing area. Hookups just OK. A quiet night; lots of morning birds and a scenic pond. Our Verizon Mi-Fi was spotty at best. Entry road was terrible. All dirt roads and sites.
Far from highway noise, but generates enough of its own to offset that. Friendly, efficient staff. Great electric power (almost too strong when park is empty). Totally worthless Wi-Fi. Bathrooms clean but old, with scary-dark pay showers. Family-oriented: lots of kid activities means lots of yelling kids; adults screaming and partying til 11; loud music at sites. Family destination = yes. Convenient overnite stop = no.
Amazing. We are on our 3rd year full-timing, and this is our favorite park in the U.S. Good 4G Mi-Fi, good satellite reception, friendly staff, site trash pickup, large showers, and beautiful landscaping. Makes us want to live here.
Friendly hands-on KOA owner. We had a beautiful site. No loud highways or trains, and we disagree with a former reviewer: it was easy to find, and right on our chosen route. Great showers, though we are not fans of those automatic shut-off handles we've been seeing lately. Strong 4G Mi-Fi. Would definitely stay here again.
First, the office gets a 10+ for person-ability. Price is great. Good electrical strength and hookups. On the minus side, not enough showers, sites not level, and waaaay too many barking dogs during our stay . It sounded more like a public campground.
Good hookups, good satellite reception, good Verizon 4G Wi-Fi reception. Showers would be great if there were adequate hooks/ shelves/ bench. Not a destination park, but worked as an overniter. However, $51 after Labor Day seems unreasonably pricey.
A quaint county park with friendly, efficient host. Extremely cheap price, spotless bathrooms and laundry room. Some nice shady spots. We enjoyed riding our bikes on the paved river trails that began right at the campsite. Only downside was how RV sites and tent sites are mixed.
Many nice, open sites with just the right amount of shade trees. Quiet; bordered by corn fields. Would have rated 10, except the all-dirt roads were dusty, and the modern hands-free shower spout kept magically turning off.
Excellent park. Friendly host, offering your choice of open vs. shady spots. Private toilet/shower units, though not as clean as some we've seen. Would have given a 10 except for the cheesy Wi-Fi rules (limitations to both time and bandwidth), which is unacceptable at today's modern RV parks).
The Good: Bathrooms and laundry room very clean, large showers, level sites. The Bad: Wi-Fi spotty, up and then dropping. The Ugly: Literally sits banked against I-90. Extensive road construction going on (call to find out when it will be finished). Okay for one night, if you have fans/AC for white noise and/or don't mind losing a little sleep. We won't stay here again.
Charming Missouri River sunrises in this clean park. Very long, roomy, paved sites, and lots of grass between. Owners couldn't be friendlier. Very strong Wi-Fi. Older bathrooms, but very clean. As others have mentioned, not enough shade trees; however, we took advantage of the air-conditioned resort and pool next door.
Very serene, with deer and turkeys strolling through the park at dawn and at dusk. Lots of mature shade trees and grass. While the showers are much too small, they are above average in cleanliness. Wi-Fi is excellent.
The sites were so roomy and the price so reasonable, we were frankly surprised this was a KOA. About half the sites have mature trees. Clean bathrooms and showers. While Verizon voice and data are non-existent, we were impressed that they advised us of that up-front when we made our reservations (how unusually honest, huh?). Their Tengo Internet Wi-Fi, however, is excellent (we had trouble with it at first, and the owner offered suggestions; then it was screaming fast)! Both owners are delightful and helpful. There were too many flies and mosquitoes for us, but we hear this year was an anomaly.
Sparkling bathrooms and laundry room, some of the best we've seen. Owners and managers all extremely friendly and accommodating. Lush grass surrounding level gravel pads. Good spacing between sites, which are also staggered, allowing for more privacy. Highway noise disappears during the nights. We would mark a 10, except for weak to non-existent Wi-Fi. We would definitely be back when visiting Yellowstone.
Started out a score of 10 with the beautiful sites in the woods, and perfectly level gravel sites. Then we realized the advertised Wi-Fi was all but non-existent, the sewer hookup was inconveniently high, and the shower head was duct-taped, which leaked and sprayed erratically. We could never get voltage above 114, and that was prior to plugging anything in. A/C on low dropped voltage to 109. Our friends stayed in nearby, expensive KOA, and we would join them there next time.
Tops in cleanliness. Friendly, hands-on owners. Water pressure great. Loved the clean and easy utility hookups. Adequate spacing between sites. Our only wish would be for some shade trees in this sea of cement.
Very appealing immediately upon entrance. Friendly, accommodating staff. Gardens galore and shady pine trees, which was welcome in 100 degree weather. Light highway noise. Would have given a 10, but showers have no water pressure when someone is using the washing machines next door. Enjoyed the nearby National Bison Range drive. Our second visit, and we will return again.
Would not stay again even though staff was friendly. Bathrooms below average, full of sand from nearby beach. Sites too narrow (we could not open 2nd slideout). Fire pit was within 2 steps of our door, and ours is not a mega-RV. Our view was of long-term neighbor's junkyard clutter.
Location, Location, Location. This clean state park is nestled on a low bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The park hosts were efficient and friendly, and the cinder block restrooms were clean in spite of all the campers tracking in beach sand. We will be back.
Ten points for location. Minus one point for surly, arrogant owner. Minus another for unsmiling, unfriendly office staff. Minus another for inadequate bathrooms (don't believe the "remodeling" signs explaining only one shower and out-of-order toilets; they were there a year ago). Minus a point for old laundry machines and lack of recycling. Minus another for having excess of posted rules, in triplicate ("Don't start 2 washing machines at the same time, or they will flood." ???). We believe in supporting courteous business owners. We will not be back.
High marks for peaceful, woodsy setting and very friendly staff. (Might not be as serene in high season or on weekends.) Low marks for old, funky bathrooms and showers, and the worst, barely working washing machines we've used this past year.
In spite of older reviews, we found this park very easy to locate, with good Wi-Fi, and strong water pressure. Love the RV sites (even though not level) on plateaus surrounded by pines. We had an excellent lunch at the grill overlooking the golf course. Would have rated higher, but there are only 2 old washers & dryers.
What a surprise! Great price, very quiet sleep, sparkling new bathrooms & showers. A new favorite overnight spot. But even though it is first come, first served, they recommend you check availability (due to events at the Fairgrounds).
Located smack on highway 395, but the light traffic noise died down every night. Competitively priced gas station and propane on site. A few trees, clean river rock/gravel sites. Very clean bathrooms, showers, and laundry room. Manager who checked us in gets an A+ for friendly, efficient process.
Average park, just okay for an overnighter. Sites are bare, but the park itself is outlined by shade trees. Tight sites (we could put out our slides, but not our awning). Very quiet at night. Bathrooms just acceptable, toilet leaking. Friendly staff.
Level gravel sites, uber-friendly managers. This clean park was a welcome oasis of oleanders and palm trees in the surrounding heat. Would have rated a '10,' but only 1 shower, 1 men's toilet, and the swimming pool can only be accessed with a deposit/card, which makes early departure difficult.
Level gravel sites. A friendly mix of park models & RV sites. Attractive pueblo-style buildings. Clear pool with waterfalls and soft music. We rode our bikes to the grocery store along the convenient path, and around the safe park streets each evening. We will stop here again.
Friendly, efficient staff. Will be nicer here when the tiny trees mature; it feels like a big parking lot right now. Good news: right next to the Grand Canyon railway depot. Bad news: freight trains come blaring by between 4:30 and 5:30 am. Very clean showers and laundry room, with oldies but goodies playing round the clock. Marking down to 8 because too many sites are right next to the communal BBQ area, where loud, inconsiderate groups gather at night (okay, if you're one of them, that might be a plus).
With its appealing Spanish entry, the first impression was cleanliness. We are glad we stopped here. A secure park with an evening guard, it's a very clean senior haven with park models and with sparkling swimming pools, which offers overnight RVs an inexpensive full hook-up option while visiting Laughlin's casinos. We would have rated a 10 if there had been shade trees. We would stay here again as an overnight stop.
Solitude atop the hill with fantastic sunrise and sunset mountain views! Away from highway noise, this is a new park waiting for its trees to mature, which will help. The only reason we didn't give it a 10 is that at this time, they have only one toilet stall per gender, and 3 showers total (albeit all are brand-new and sparkling). We would stay here again when passing through the area.
Clean and modern park, accessible to Zion National Park. River sites can't easily see the river, due to rock wall, but it's still nice listening to the gurgling at night. Our Verizon MiFi could not pick up a signal, but the park's Wi-Fi worked great. Only reason we did not give a 10 was that the sites are a little narrow for our preferences.
Kudos to these owners for not building next to the interstate (unusual for a KOA)! Located about 1 mile from I-70, park is shady and quiet. This area is an ATV mecca, so expect a few rule breakers to ride through the front entrance, even though they are given a private ATV entrance at the back. Very clean bathrooms, sites spaced well. We would stay here again.
Love the owners and office staff! This is the best RV spot in the Moab area. Having a new Class C, we still could only stay in the North campground, which was perfect (South campground is Class A). It means you have gravel pads instead of cement, and cannot use the resort swimming pool (we were busy sightseeing, so didn't matter to us). Both parks have nice shade trees. Will definitely stay here again when visiting Canyonlands and Arches National Parks.
Modern laundry, close to highway but quiet. But may I rant about the private shower/toilet rooms they are so proud of? Not sure who designed the room, but ZERO shelves in the room, ZERO shelves in the shower, ZERO hooks near the shower (single hook on back of door, out of reach). So, no place to put soap, shampoo, towels, dry clothes, etc. other than on a single plastic chair outside the shower, which may or may not be dry!
A delightful forest of treed sites behind a trucker stop with gas pumps and restaurant. Inexpensive menu, and delivery to your RV! Reasonably-priced laundry, very clean bathrooms & showers. Minus one point for the closeness to I-84 noise. At least it's only 4 lanes here and quiets down during the night.
Sadly, this park has a lot going for it, but we got no sleep, even with ear plugs. The I-84 freeway is literally on the other side of the wall from this 3-row park. It's 4 a.m., and the trucks are still roarin' by, 24 hours non-stop. Even though these are the best showers we've had in a month, and they get our sparkling bathroom award, we won't choose to stay here again. We wish these friendly hosts well.
We stayed here several nights while visiting relatives. Nicely treed park. Huge, clean showers in individual units (have quarters handy). Efficient website for online reservations. We will stay here again.
One year ago, this was our first-ever Good Sam experience. It was so positive, we stayed again this year while visiting relatives, and we were just as happy. Lots of clean laundry machines, clean bathrooms, friendly staff constantly working, tons of flowers, lagoon w/ fountain. Note: Sites along highway entrance are too noisy, so request one elsewhere.
Couldn't give a 10 due to highway noise, and the fact there are only 2 restroom stalls/showers available to RVers during hours when office is closed. Otherwise, we agree with other reviewers for the many positives.
A nice park that is working hard to become great. Exceptional, unimpeded views of the Columbia River. We liked the hard-working owners. Good news: Restrooms are being remodeled. Bad news: During the summer months? Only 1 shower available? Good news: Lots of cheap laundry machines. Bad news: Rusty machines sound like a Rumba class. Removing the clutter of excessive rules signs would also make it more appealing, including some bizarres signs, such as: "Don't start washers at the same time, or they will flood." Hmmm: time for a laundry room update, next?
We loved our site: parked under shady trees, against open hay fields, where we watched six hot air balloons ascending from. Immaculate, immaculate facilities, with private toilet/shower units. Would have given a 10, except for only having 2 restrooms for each gender, for the entire park of 70+ units, which caused waiting lines each day.
Sites too close for our comfort. Those on outside perimeter nicely edged by forest. We walked to historic downtown harbor. Otherwise, it's a nice, average park with friendly staff. P.S. Why do parks insist on using the word "Resort" when they are not resorts?
We would not return to this strange park again. It's a miniature of a real park. Only one small shower stall for men, one for women. Half the sites have no cement or gravel pad, so you step on wet grass every morning (mats are frowned upon). The dog "run" is a narrow strip of grass, too crowded for two dogs at the same time. Sites are packed in so tightly, we constantly had folks cutting through our site because of poor layout.
While we loved the owners, we would not stay here again. The bathrooms weren't open yet, but we were not told that when we made reservations. While the park is scenic, with beautiful, mature evergreen trees, the sites are in desperate need of leveling, raking, and fresh gravel, making sites feel muddy and unkempt.
Private, treed sites. We enjoyed walking the paved path to the beach. Only negative was that bathrooms were closed (not sure if it was maintenance, or if May was too early in season). Another well-cared for Oregon State Park.
Positives: huge sites, very quiet, asphalt pads, nice picnic tables & fire pit. While no trees between sites, park is full of mature trees. 2 negatives: 1) bathrooms (stainless steel type, no showers, no toilet paper, no door on men stall); 2) voltage never higher than 114.
One of the top 10 RV parks we've been in this past year. They have it all: cleanliness, modern laundry & showers, landscaping, space between sites, friendliness, cable reception, levelness, voltage, etc. etc. We will absolutely be back.
Wow! 5 star scenery, on the bank of the Rogue River. Immaculate laundry room & showers, great cable reception. Packed gravel sites, clean picnic table on grass next to site. Jet boat tour picks up at the park's private dock. Yes, it is about 5 miles upriver, but that means you'll listen to river gurgling and birds rather than hwy traffic. Friendly, caring hosts. We will absolutely be back!
Do you prefer scenery or amenities? Forest setting: A++. Laundry room: F (a few rusted machines). Bathrooms: D- (tiny; broken vents; showers flood toilet area). Roads: F (exit road severely potholed); roads in need of fresh gravel to keep dirt to a minimum. If you want amenities, stay elsewhere and get A++ scenery at the many surrounding state parks.
Hmm, pretentious to call itself a resort. That said, the sites are level, with grass, and concrete slab with table. Would have rated higher, but bathrooms only rate a C; and you might give up on waiting for hot water in shower.
This is a well-kept park, with attentive staff. Full hookups, good water pressure & voltage, very clean bathrooms. The gravel sites were mostly level, with grass next to site. Lots of trees, and scenic highway 20 is quiet at night. Only negative: gravel was graded in the morning, and the tractor raised too much dust (could have waited until checkout time).
This park is tough to rate. Should be high with its positives: trees, scenic sites, good voltage, & water pressure. Negatives: musty-smelling bathroom, and noise (weekend partiers, guitar players, loud talkers, dogs). We would stay here again, but only if NOT a weekend.
Quiet setting amidst a forest of shade trees, which blocks any highway noise. Long cement pads. Friendly staff. Plenty of showers at the main facility. Don't count on the satellite facility, which has only one private toilet/shower per gender. Only negatives: Voltage too low (115), showers a little cramped, and a bit too much clutter showing in the long-term spaces. We would stay here again.
Glad we didn't heed the March 2012 reviewer who gave a "2." This park is not $80 and is not near freeway. This park has a "wow" entry. Easy access, long entry drive, appealing landscaping. Staff at front desk extremely friendly and helpful. Great showers, clean laundry room. Nearby highway is very quiet at night. We would stay here again.
Ouch! Pricey, at $90 per night. But if we don't ding them for that, we loved it. Birdsong, beautiful vistas. Many sites are NOT level, so be forewarned. Immaculate bathrooms, and the friendly staff told us about free bikes to borrow.
Great base for exploring Catalina Island & Southern California. Large, immaculate showers, sparkling pool, and inexpensive laundry room. We rode the adjoining Long Beach Bicycle Trail to beach, restaurants, shops. Maintenance crew & gardeners constantly manicuring.
Clean mega-activity mega-park. Showers tiny, but good. Strict separation of pet owners from non-pet owners. Beware: If you're only here a few days, laundry card costs $5, and that's ONLY for the card (you then add more $ for laundry credit). This means you say goodbye to um-used balance. Feels like an intentional rip-off. Other parks have better credit card options and/or coin options.
Stayed here while having RV maintenance. Loved sitting by the waterfall at the pool. Modern laundry facility (option to pay with credit card, and to send text message when machine is finished!). Pristine bathrooms with floors that always look just-waxed. Showers a bit tiny, but plenty of shelf area and robe hooks. Friendly staff. Despite the neighborhood, this is an extremely secure, gated community.
Wow! Beautiful! You have to see the sun setting on the mountains to believe it. Large showers & restrooms could not be any cleaner. No sewer, but there is a dump station. Why stay in the city when the Arizona state parks are so amazing?
Here's the story: there's not much out here, but it's a nice, quiet stopping point along I-10. Gravel, dust, a few trees, large sites, and a dang friendly owner. Free waffles in the morning, and you can always buy a freshly baked pie. Best plus for us: no I-10 highway noise, just an occasional distant train, no whistles blown.
Resort with lots of activities, nice mix of park models & RVs. The pluses: immaculately clean, friendly office staff, security gates, beautifully landscaped entry. The only negatives for us: if you are not a country music fan, the jammers who gather at sites can be pretty loud; also, the shower heads are dated, and need replacing.
Sparkling showers & restrooms. Very friendly hosts. And if you luck out, you'll have one of the many sites with trees, and an inviting spot of green grass to set out your lawn chair. Who could ask for more while visiting Las Cruces? (except to have an excellent meal at La Posta de Mesilla)
In one of the nicer areas of Roswell -- rural but five minutes to downtown. Showers are older, but very clean with great spray and pressure. Some shade trees, nice concreted areas, picnic table, gravel pads, good spacing between sites. Extremely friendly hosts. We would stay here again.
Very nice, homey, woodsy park, close to I-10 but quite muted. Spotless restrooms (the private toilet/shower type), clean laundry room with very inexpensive machines. Heard 1 train at 10pm, but then no more til morning. Friendly hosts. We walked one block north to Paddy's BBQ, one of our favorite Texas meal memories.
Level sites, but waaaay too close. We chose not to sit at picnic table which perched over neighbor's sewer. RV park owners DO make the choice of how tight to cram in the sites! Very clean restrooms (private toilet/shower types), but almost nil water pressure in shower. Should we hold the constantly barking dog against them? With their boldly stated warnings, it's hard to imagine they didn't hear the dog that yipped all day for the 3 days we stayed. Thankfully, we took day trips.
We really don't like this part of Texas, but needed an overnight spot. Too close to I-10, but the gusty winds disguised the hwy noise. The sites are adequately wide, but pull through sites are too short; we had to disconnect, even though they said we would not when we made the reservation. (Our RV is only 32 ft.) Shower rooms not the cleanest we've seen, and shower water spray was too weak.
We don't care for this part of Texas, but for an overnight stay, this was a great choice. Grass next to each dirt/gravel site, nice distance from neighbors. Really clean bathrooms, but small (Lilliputian) showers. Excellent, inexpensive laundry room. We faced a relaxing, wooded, green river.
Restrooms/Showers deserve an 11! Yes -- you will be an extra 15 miles north of Carlsbad, but you'll be glad you made this choice! We visited our friends at the RV park smack downtown (we won't name it here), and they had no space, no grass, no room to sit outside. We had it all at the Carlsbad KOA, plus bird sounds, in a peaceful setting next to a grove of pecan trees.
