In the Red Lodge area there is little to choose from for parks with hook ups. This place on the surface looked a little disappointing. Then we met the owner, what a nice person. There are a few sites with pull-through; I think a couple have full hook up, otherwise it is water and electric only. We had no problems with a 40ft MH gettting to our site . Lovely venue on Rocky Creek which is great for trout. There tends to be a line for the dump station so plan accordingly when leaving. We will stay again in the future.
The staff at first seemed to be a bit off putting. However they are very very busy. When you catch them in a lull they are much better with exception of one that should not be in a business requiring interaction with the public. But one can avoid this easily. The sites around the perimeter are nice. The ones in the circle are tight. All are grass/gravel and not level, uneven ground front to back, and side to side. The interior roads are a bit of a rabbit warren. The location is great though and access is good. There may be better places in the area but at a higher price and not as family friendly. So we would stay again especially when traveling with kids.
Unlevel sites,rough gravel and at best cluttered . Very run down looking. Although sites are listed as big rig, that is a bit of a stretch of imagination. Some dilapidated old motor homes look to be permanent residents. Our site had empty beer cans still in the BBQ pit along with some partially burned paper. We never even looked at the bath facilities. Sewer connections not user friendly. Maybe they were just coming out of winter and had a lot of repair work to do. The staff that helped us was friendly even his pit bull that was in the office seemed nice. Would not stay here again. In fact, we left shortly after arriving due to difficulty with leveling and venue . Might stop in the future to see if any improvements have occur ed.
Usually KOAs are average. Every now and then there is a Rose. This is one of the times. The sites are long, level, and the staff is wonderful. The bath facilities are very nice, tiled, and looks new and clean. Wi-Fi was good and secure. We did not have to unhook the car only for one night.
OK place but filled with older somewhat dated park models. The place is typical of mega parks in the east valley. Also if you are over 40ft there is limited space. Mostly, dusty gravel sites along the wall for the bigger rigs. This is also the most noisiest area. Some scorpions are about so watch where you reach or walk, especially after sundown. The check in staff are a bit indifferent. Maybe this is the result of young people serving us older folks. Once you find the friendless then all is great. There are a lot of amenities though and the residents are very friendly.
The rate reflects the Good Sam discount. However they also had a special of, one "free night". The place is as nice as ever , all of the staff at the RV park office were the most easy going and helpful we have encountered The fruit trees are not as productive as before but this is probably due to the year of neglect before Lazy Days took over. The restaurant was excellent, prices reasonable. The only draw back is that some of the sites are not quite perfectly level and all are gravel. Our Verizon worked with full bars, satellite TV access excellent (no buildings or tree interference). Even better was the new security measures and the easy access to the service center. When they where finished with our MH the mechanics even drove it back to our site and hooked up the electricity, turned on the AC for us as we had gone out sight seeing while they did service. We will absolutely stay again when in the area. I hope Lazy Days makes a go of it.
One of the better N.F. campgrounds in the area. Wide enough interior roads with a good turn around, good gravel with out much dust. It is by the river but the mosquitoes were not to bad. There are a limited number of sites with electricity and they are in a separate part of the camp ground. The place will be closing down in September 2011 for a complete "redo" in time for next year summer season. Listed as big rigs "OK", but I would absolutely have some way to check your site before hand as trees and depth could be a significant problem. The campground hosts are wonderful people and if you can get them on the phone (it is possible) and explain your rig then they can advise you appropriately. The sites (electric) for greater than 34 feet with electric are near the host on east side then at least #s 7,10, and 12. There are more but I remember these. Make your reservation asap since they go quickly. There are 3 sites that are non reservable but plan to arrive around noon or sooner if you want to get one. The venue is great, near by to Big Sky resort and shops, but supplies are limited there. Located about 12 miles from the north edge of Yellowstone park on Hwy 191 40 miles from the West Yellowstone entrance. One amusing thing, the hosts sell firewood cut and wrapped imported from " California " how strange. Would definitely stay again if the chance arises in the future. Especially since we now know the lay of land.
As far as Moab is concerned there are many RV parks ; most are tight, dusty, and some unfriendly staffing at a selected few. We visited several for future information purposes Portal has a very friendly staff. We had no problem getting into our spot with a 40' mtr home and pulling a "toad". Sites in the North unit are gravel but wide enough, as were the access roads. The park was clean, ideally located and reasonable. Our rate reflects the included tax. However the rest rooms and showers left a lot to be desired. Maybe, this reflects the many tents of a younger and less responsible age? (am I giving a hint as to our age?) This has been an issue at many other places we have stayed and not due to management. They do have a South unit with a bit of snobbery as an undercurrent. This was perceived when we took a walk around and tried to at least say hi to some of the occupants. Indecently some of these sites are also for rent by the owner. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. One piece of advice. The Moab area is extremely popular and the RV places tend to book up in advance, some even 2-3 months ahead.
The choice for nice and newer RV parks in the Salt Lake City area is poor at best. Many are old . crowded, behind the times for the newer and Larger rigs. This is not the case with Pony Express. level large concrete pads, very nice rest room showers. Inner roads are wide and paved. Security gates and a friendly staff. The only draw backs : it is a bit of a chore getting there if you are traveling from the North on I-15 or I-215. Also there are a lot of very long term residents and some tend to leave their spots a bit messy. We definitely will stay here when in the SLC area. Even when taking family to the Lagoon fun park.
There are several parks in the Mesa Verde area, only one other very near the National park. This is a relatively new park and is truly a rare find. The good ratings in one of the common RV directories are deserved. It has an abundance of amenities. Good large sites for the premium sites you do not have to unhook your tow, there is easy access especially for big rigs. The location, toilets and laundry exceeded our expectations. Cleanliness and finally, a staff that are obviously guest oriented just to mention a few of the pluses. If there are any negatives it would be that it is bit open. Which to me is a big plus. "No trees in the way, large rocks, or tight turns to avoid or fear." Hopefully it will stay in this condition as time goes on. Would definitely stay again when coming this way.
This is a unique park. The sites are all individually owned. One can try the reality company as they do have a rental section for some lot owners. Your site can vary in amenities from gravel to full Cassita with patio, W/D, toilet and shower, fridge. You have to negotiate the price and length of stay with the owner. We stayed for the winter and had a great site with BBQ, W/D, S&T, sink and fridge. Covered patio. The streets are wide sites large, staff friendly, many amenities and activities. The golf course is privately owned and not part of the park. This is a true retirement community with many living here the year round, even in the summer heat. We will be back next winter. In my opinion this is the best place in the Phoenix area. On asking others, the prices seem to vary from $550-1200 per month depending on amenities and location. The only negative is that it is located far from many of the Phoenix/Scottsdale activities as other than Gold and Spring training there is little going on in Surprise itself.
Clean and well appointed. The staff was helpful. Easy access and site position of our 40 foot rig, even with out unhooking the tow car. Somewhat shielded from the almost constant Flagstaff wind. There are many things to see in close proximity and only a short day trip to the Grand Canyon. After spending the winter in a park with wide paved streets and very level sites, it was a transition getting used to gravel again. In the Flagstaff area as in most others, this is the norm. This park, in my opinion, is head and shoulders above any others in the Flagstaff area. We did visit several others just to be truly objective. We will definitely stay here when once again in Flagstaff.
Among the best of KOA I have stayed in. A very nice venue. Well kept and clean. Large sites with fire pits. The owner even gave us firewood. There is a wash station for your RV including big rigs. Trees are spaced so they are no problem for your rig. Sites are level, the store is good. Staff was definitely customer oriented, friendly, and helpful. Would stay again when in the area.
The staff was very nice and friendly. The place left a lot to be desired. The dump station is on unlevel ground and you need to turn into it on arc and then exit onto an uphill somewhat off camber road. Our site looked like an after thought. Not very big rig friendly. Our neighbor growled at us for being near her plants. We did not touch or drive on them. It was clean, though. A number of full timers here. Some dated rigs.
We stayed here as part of the Rotary Fellowship RV group. Yes, it is big place, but clean and neat. One really appreciates the staff when in a non English speaking society. They all spoke English and were most helpful in guiding us. There even is a wash facility for big rigs with ladders and all the brushes etc. Granted it is not free but very useful. A driving range is on the property, also. The nearby towns have wonderful little Bistros and banking services. The only big drawback was the distance from Montreal. This was solved by driving to the Metro station then going into the city by train. We did have one very generous rain storm and I don t think any place could have accounted for the amount of rain. It did dry out quick though. Would stay again.
Clean nice setting and a very amiable staff. He even offered to trim some trees if there was any difficulty getting in to our site. The one draw back was the 30 amp service. We read about the dumping situation so we arrived empty. Like it and would stay again.
NOT your typical KOA. It had a lot more than usual, wagon rides for kids, ice cream social, fishing pond, good supply store. A very friendly helpful staff. Site wide and hook ups easy access. Only negative was the sites were gravel and not perfectly level. We enjoyed our two day stay and would come again. Stayed with two other families traveling along with us in their rigs (two motor homes and one fifth wheel).
A nice place with a good staff. The train that travels alongside the site, was not too frequent. My only negatives were no cable TV and no 50 amp electricity. I would stay again. Traveling in a Big Rig.
A nice place with a wonderful venue. I regret that we had time for only one night. Site are level and wide. My satellite worked. The mosquitoes were not top bad. The staff was friendly. We would stay again when in the area.
As others have stated. There is not much in the Fargo Moorhead area. The one in Moorhead is down a muddy dirt road. So this was it. Operated by the adjacent hotel. The site was level, not dry though, there were hook up electric boxes every where as well as sewer hook ups, most confusing. The venue is stark. No help in finding or parking at your designated site. A few junky rigs sitting idle along the perimeter. One plus: the person at the Hotel desk was polite and friendly. Unfortunately not much else here.
What a pleasant surprise after the multiple disappointments when traveling through North Dakota, where most of the sites we stayed at left a lot to be desired. The manager was one of the nicest we have met. He was, I believe from Georgia and a great NASCAR fan. The sites were relatively level, gravel but no dust, requiring virtually no extra blocks. The place is not too far from the Theodore Roosevelt National park and certainly in our experience, better than the ones located there, especially for big rigs. The road noise of interstate 94 was not noticable. The shade tress were not intrusive (we have 4 slides), but helped to shield the hot sun off your rig. No need to set up my satellite as the cable TV provided all the networks one usually desire. Water and sewer access was great. We did not use the laundry. There are two restaurants in easy walking distance and served good hot food with generous portions. They of course were not the Ritz, but still good. We will definitely stay here again when traveling on I-94.
This is one of the nicest, cleanest places we have ever stayed. The staff was exceptional. The little cafe had a great breakfast. The venue is also great. The big rig sites are excellent. They even "offered" to trim one of the trees so my satellite antenna would not be hindered for reception. This was a first for me. As many RV parks would either do nothing or offer to move you. Probably if there is a drawback, it is the drive to Zion park, and that is not a real drawback. If you don t want to drive, there is a shuttle to public transport which then goes to the park. We will absolutely come here again and stay longer. Accommodated our 40 footer with tow car.
This is one of the Mega sites in the Greater Phoenix, Sunrise area. I was expecting a lot by the ads, but alas there was a difference in reality. Granted the snowbird season was over and I did not expect a lot of goings on. The sites are gravel, and dusty, the concrete patios vary in length and width. Some are not quite wide enough for a picnic table. Many RV sites are mixed in with dated park models. There was one area that is for a majority of RVs . They ding you a little for everything; cable TV, mailbox, are an extra charge. Trash is twice a week. There is no refuse disposal area in the park. The place was clean and neat though. On a positive note, the staff we met were friendly and helpful, one of the good points. Also, the golf course is a lot of fun to play at a reasonable rate. The pool and main quad area is nice, with a good lawn bowls pitch. Season rates vary but will be around $650 to $800 per month plus electric. There are other nicer appearing places for the same amount near by and closer to shopping. This I think was my main disappointment price vs value? Which is why I only rated it as slightly above average.
If you are just staying over night, it is Okay. It has easy access to the interstate. Gravel, dust: there is nothing that sets this place apart from others. In fact the residents tend to park their cars in the streets, therefore when leaving in the morning, you either need to let your neighbor or people across from you know, or be resigned to waking them up to move their car. There appeared to be some full time or long time residents. We did the latter, and he was grumpy, (not at 7 am but at 9am.) Our neighbor next to us was very pleasant though. We stayed on our way to Tucson.
A nice and very friendly place. Lots of things going on. However the roads and sites are bit dated. Mostly older park models with spaces for RVs interspersed through out the park. The RV sites are gravel/dirt and the levelers/stabilizers tend to sink in 3-6 inches so you definitely need to use some sort of extra wide pads. Also, when backing in you definitely need a copilot as there are trees that could cause a problem in most sites. The staff will help you with this without hesitation. The security seemed to be good. Nearby to one of the Bird sanctuaries, in fact one could ride your bike there with ease. We would come again.
The sites are the usual KOA set up. They are all gravel, but level. Mostly over nighters on their way east or west on I-10. Not as noisy as other near the Interstate KOAs, even though the railroad is nearby. I think the trains are going by so fast that you don't get much rumble. The big plus, is the staff and the cafe. Really nice people and the food is great even if at twice the price. Would stay again when driving the long trip between San Antonio area and El Paso.
This was our second year here. We had an extended stay of 2 half months which came to less than the nightly rate . Very nice place with friendly people. We parked here in a 40 footer. It has nice and wide interior access roads. Sites are not crowded. Near the marina and one of the best hamburger cafes in the area so fisherman should be very pleased. Good security. Saturday night musical entertainment is wonderful with RV'ers from other parks playing country and blue grass music. Happy hour is every evening in the rec hall. All is usually planned by the winter Texan's staying here. There is not a lot of organized events such as wood shop or a pool etc. which is the only reason I did not give it a ten. This is on the whole a clean well appointed, quiet place. I would stay again with out hesitation. Many of the occupants have been coming for years.
This is a large park with many amenities. The biggest bonus is the staff. They have been consistently pleasant and helpful.The security is excellent with patrols through out the night. Also,the proximity of the Beaudry RV sales and service is very convenient if needed. The only draw back is the location. It is a bit far from many of the things to see and do in the Tucson area. Major shopping is also a 3 to 6 mile drive. However there was a Fry's grocery store within 3 miles. We stayed for 2 months, and would definitely do so again next year when heading south.
There are few RV parks near Edmonton especially the West Edmonton Mall so it is here or nothing else. I read some reviews about dust, and etc. However we did not have any problems with this. Also even though near two major highways the road noise was minimal. We had our grandchildren with us and the play area was ideal. There are a lot of long term residents here and they have trees. The transients seem to be in the back forty which is a moderate walk to the main office, restaurant, abd store. It was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.
A very nice small park. About 3 miles from the Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump park. The RV park is not in the city but about 12 miles north. Very friendly staff. Play ground for kids along with shelters for BBQ out of the weather.
